Maternal Mental Health: With Dr. Alexandra Sacks

"This is Jade visits Carly. And this is mommy's. Tell all. Jade he Carly and he everybody, welcome to everybody mommy's. Tell all what is episode ten I'm losing track that down to are we feel like we graduated Cruzan in. Done done done. Mrs like the time of graduations to we're graduating as well. Makes me feel useful. No, we're not. But it's okay. We wanted to talk really quick to, I guess I'm just going to jump right into the topic for this episode which is mental health. So the beginning of may was maternal mental health week, and we didn't get a talk about maternal mental health really on that week. But we do want to address it because it's obviously super important. And I love that people are actually talking about it. And finally, in today, we have a guest, who is a maternal mental health, psychiatrist who's here to talk with us, and it's a pretty, like, I think it's a pretty casual conversation we have with her. It's not like a typical interview where she's giving us a lot of educational information, but it's more just her talking to us as humans. And as moms kind of just telling us that what we feel is sometimes. Perfectly valid or most of the time perfectly valid because in a momma's super hard. And it does affect it's the hardest thing ever. Yeah. And I mean obviously, it's the best thing ever, it is the best ever, if we talk about reality. There are a lot of women out there facing challenges and struggles and even mental illness. That is a fact. Well, and it affects every single aspect of your life. I mean there's you know there's not a room that you walk in that you don't sometimes feel super overwhelmed. While they're the worker at home or at the grocery store, or you know, with your friends. I mean, being a mom. I mean yeah it's the best thing, but you know it makes you exhausted. And it makes you feel tons of emotions that you've never felt before. And it makes you I don't know, feel so. Tot- like totally different person than you felt before. And sometimes I kids, incredibly overwhelming, and you don't really know how to navigate that, especially that fourth trimester right after how baby. Absolutely. It's really that navigating through that specially, I think I mean, I know each time you have a baby. It's totally different. But as a first time mom when you have no idea, no idea. Yeah. Yeah. But I do want to share found this article, and I wanted to read something from it because I feel like this is really important to share. But it says more than one in ten women develop mental illness during pregnancy or within the first year of having a baby, and seven and ten of those will hide or underplay, the severity of their perinatal illness. Says those aren't small statistics. There are lots and lots of women living with mental illnesses all around us. Even if you think you don't know a mom, who has suffered from postnatal depression, anxiety, OCD. I bet you do, but they're just one of those seven and ten plane down, and I definitely think that's so true. Because we often put ourselves last as moms. It's like where do I even start to talk about how I'm really feeling and are my feelings bad or my feelings wrong? Does that make me a terrible mother? You know. And so it's something that I think we feel like we all need to be perfect moms, we have to be the perfect mom, and we have to have like our hair done in our makeup done in our cute. Little letter board, Instagram posts. You know what I mean? Guess and here I am totally and then then reality here, I am sitting on the couch hair in a bun five days, haven't washed it. No. Makeup. You know, being just disgusting. If I really think about myself, because some days are really hard and I don't want to do anything. Oh, yeah. That's me too. Yeah. Somedays. It's so hard to even just get off the couch and play with their kid because you're so it'd, I mean, especially even like I've noticed so much. So in this new pregnancy, I feel so much guilt for the lack of energy. I even have for Bella, you know, and that I mean yeah, that just adds to the fact that I've already felt a ton of new emotions being a mom in the first place. And now it's like being a mom, again for another baby. And do I even have energy for that? And then I feel guilt about, oh, gosh. Well, in this baby comes out. I'm not even going to have. I'm gonna have less energy and less time for Bella and all my gosh. How am I gonna feel about that? And it's like emotions after emotions after emotions, you know what I mean? Yeah. Totally. And then if you think about nutritional depletion if. Think about your body. Think about all the nutrients that it took to grow one human. And then we're just starting to finally like fill our bodies back up, and then we're pregnant again, like you and are, are pregnancy is aren't like that close to, like to our first babies, but they're close enough that right now your body's depleting again. And I really do think that I think there's gotta be there's no scientific connection that I have any proof of right now, but I feel like there's gotta be tied to the nutritional depletion in our bodies because about your brain is gonna be depleted. And then mental health so with EMI go ahead is going to say in our Facebook group, like there, so many questions that we have, like women have all the time about mental health. Hey, is this normal? Hey, my relationship is struggling, hey, I hate my husband right now is that normal? You know, hey, I've I feel so exhausted that I feel like I can't get out of bed is that normal? I think that's, that's also another reason. That we wanted to address this topic because we have so many women really bringing it up. I mean, every single day, what's normal. And then what something that may be is slightly different. And that maybe needs to be addressed by a professional right? You actually met up with our guest at a at a function like wooden. Was that like a month ago, the mental the maternal mental health psychiatrists, we have on her name is Alexandra sacks. I found her on Instagram and her, and I connected and she just released a book called what nobody really tells you and I, she was having a book signing. And she wanted me to come a moderate, the interview, saying that with her, and she does this podcast, where she pretty much has her patients who are willing to be on her podcast do therapy. Session with her. And so she was like Judas wanna do a session. And I was like, you know, I'm not gonna say not free therapy. Everybody grad everybody can benefit from therapies, so I ended up talking to her, and it was amazing in really good. And I feel a kind of had that I feel like what maybe a therapy high afterwards, where I was like, oh my God, I feel like such a load off my shoulders. But then I had a vulnerability hangover afterwards, and I was like, oh, my God shared too much, you know, so it's such like a interesting, like variety of emotions, I felt I was really glad I spoke with her. I'm really excited to get her on and have everyone here, all the all the brilliant things. She has to say because I feel like there's just so much helpful information for all of us on all varying levels of mental health. Yeah. And she's a very warm funny empathetic therapists, and I feel like that's really important. And she's a psychiatrist is, she does like prescribe medications and diagnose, she made me feel very. Comfortable. So I feel like that's something if you're out there looking for therapists, and you don't feel comfortable with your therapist, find somebody you do because Italy, she was amazing. That's awesome. Well, when we get back from the break, we will have Dr Alexandra on to talk to. And now it's time for our segment. Jaden Carly pay for EMMY and Bellas college education.

She is ready to eat. She is right on me about it.

All right. Everybody. So we have Dr Alexander's sacks with us today. She is a maternal mental health psychiatrist and reproductive psychiatrist and weird. So excited to have you Alexandra. Thank you for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited to talk to guys and love your show. Thank you. That's so nice. I was telling Jane the other day, I know that you guys got to meet up, and I was, I was so jealous that she got a mommy session, you guys had such interesting things to say. So it was it was really nice. Actually, I felt if all so cathartic after I left, I was like I feel so much better, even though I didn't I didn't go to deep either. But it just felt great. Yeah. I mean, I think that's the power of these, you know, we, we call them mother had sessions and our podcast, they give let it's like sitting. Down and just basically talking about what you're going through describing it, it doesn't even have to be your deepest darkest secrets. But I think they're just things that people feel are hard or maybe like not pleasant or pretty digits to describe, but we think kind of like a big deal, but they're really so universal Jaden and just talking about her older daughter, adjusting to the new baby and just feeling both happy about their rival, the new baby and sad about sort of the time alone with any and it's like stay straightforward, so common, and yet, I think it's still like it's still sort of surprising for people to discuss anything negative around a pregnancy or new parenting experiences, just still so tempos. So I think that could be stories or opening up for people like yeah. What I'm going through is actually quite common. It's not hard to push in. It's part of the jesmyn, it'd be complex transition for all. And it was wonderful. Jay that you just kind of like shared what you were going through. And I think it resonated with so many people who are thinking about transitioning to bring a new baby into the family. Thank you. Yeah. I it's funny because I felt good afterwards. And then the next day, I had a little bit of vulnerability hangover. I was like, whoa. I shared a lot with a lot of people. But that's also why we do our podcast. We want to connect with women and like you said, like, there are things that are universal we all may have a different experience with it. But we all have feelings that are difficult when we're moms. And so yeah, yeah. And it's like so interesting why you know, I'm very interested in what, what emotions we sort of share I on social media or TV or podcast, like, you know, I think people do talk quite personally about their joy, and that's also voter vol. You know, says it's like the difficulty is, is no is really like it's not exposing. I just think it's less common and it's just like it's just part of the mix of what we all feel every day. We're all feeling kind of confusion or a little bit nervous. But it's. It's kind of Justice common and relatable, as celebrate just I just think it's, it's like we have to, and you guys are so wonderful positions of influence, and leadership take just take a deep breath and do it more. Just so it becomes more commonplace. That's, that's a feeling as common and as related -able as a celebrate ori- one now. Absolutely. I feel like if we're only sharing the joys, which is great. And we should we should totally soak those in putting pressure, especially in a social media age that we can't share the honest. I don't wanna say like negative, but just like the difficult parts that we judge ourselves about. Like I feel like we're already putting pressure on ourselves to be these perfect moms. And then if for frayed to put it out on social media, like I feel this way, am I alone. And then people judge us than we feel even worse. So it is kind of this hard thing. But if. Ladies talking about it, then it's this gonna keep perpetuating, right? Yeah. Yeah. And I guess, like I'm kind of curious about what you guys think that judgment is about, because it's sort of like I, I don't know. I feel like moms are under so much pressure. Like you said to be perfect. And I think, you know, there's one thing is sort of sharing it with your peers, and your friends and other women and your partners and is a totally different thing to talk about it in front of children. So, like, of course, you know, kids, kids need emotion to match where they are. And it's like it's great to be with them and comforting when them when they're upset, but otherwise yes to lead with positivity around kids. Always right. But this is like separate. This is just kind of how we talk amongst the dose where we talk about the good and the bad. Yeah. I guess, like why do people judge each other for describing the things in their lives that are hard? You know, I wonder if that's because there's, there's so. Much. It's like threatening if you think about what's hard in someone else's life than you might have to examine what's hard in your life. And maybe we wanna push those feelings away. Like where does it come from to judge other moms, sort of maybe maybe feeling a little bit? We'd be about, like, that's not a lot. Just a feeling. Oh, yeah. I definitely think it's, it's projection if she fills this way. But I don't feel this way, does that make me about mom? And. Like it's almost like a because if we're about mom, then we feel like maybe that means like to them. It looks like I don't love my child, and so, so that's kind of like where comes from. And then we get in this judgy judgy, I guess, mind frame because we're really trying to protect our own selves. I, I don't know. That's how I interpret it. Because I've, I've caught. Yeah. On. And I think it's like because there are so few quote, right answers to parenting, like we're all figuring out if we go along you wanna keep building your own confidence, which is like okay that choice was right for me. That choice was right for me. But before you know it, it's like that is the best one for everyone. And then it's sort of like how people I think, boost their own confidence about their own parenting style, and they come out in judging someone else's because you're like why they do it that way, maybe I should be doing it, what the way under. But yeah, gee, what are, what are the moments like on cures of anything's comes to mind were, it's, it's interesting to say that you caught yourself dozen other people like do you think it is related to the things where you're sort of, like do I do it the right way? Yeah. I mean, I can't think of specific instances, but I've definitely like judged mom in public for sure where I'm just like I don't even know. Like I can't even think of anything one, but oh, Carly's going I well, and I feel I felt bad for doing this, but I, I talked to about this before, but I was in Walgreens one day, and there was a mom, and she was pushing a cart with she had a like probably five month old in a car seat. And then her kid was running around, I'm guessing he was, like probably two and there are a bunch of like socks in a been in the middle of Walgreens. And the kid was taking this awesome, throwing them all over the floor. And I'm thinking this mom, who isn't telling her to stop? And I kind of, you know, I, I kind of looked at him. And then I looked at her. Like, are you going to say something, and then she looks kid, and she says, you know that we don't we don't throw like things in a store. All over the floor. We have to pick them up. Any any just looks at his mom, and then they just walked off in, in the kid didn't pick them up in the mom didn't pick them up. But then I kind of because I also didn't pick them up but I was like, you know, I was like how should I be feeling right now? Because I don't I remember thinking, I don't wanna mom shame her right now at all even having the Stotts, but, like that wasn't to me, the right way to teach a child, you know. So I was just having this really weird moment even within myself because I'm so anti mom shaming, and I caught myself in that moment doing it, you know, and then how do that differently. You know, but also this five month old baby sitting there, she couldn't really lead the five-month-old sitting there to pick up the things, but then I don't know, actually now I think that go, that's so empathic the way you thought from, like every angle, and I think what you thought, which is like, maybe I could pick them up. It's kind of a lovely impulse not, not because we all have to go out like cleaning up other other people's feeling. I should have done it. I should have. You weren't. Sure. And who knows what you were rushing off to. But I think it's just like I think when Ines out offer support, like feeling the impulse to judge. And if unless you want to just walk by and not get involved, which is which is always like an auction, right? Like we don't have the metal. But if you're feeling poll, I think, to translate that poll like, how can I ask this person how I can be of help the usually like usually when things are kind of going awry in a family? It's like who couldn't use a helping hand, you know, and they know mess. Do be like hi. I can help them pick them up and then you help the kit. Or is that going too far like or do you just wait till they walk off? And you pick them up or like what do you mean? Like enter jetting into their like. Yeah, I don't know. I don't think there's any one, right. Or wrong answer. I mean, I think there are people out there who would be like never meddle in someone else's day. Don't get him. But I think I don't know, I feel like part of this sort of speaking out and shame reducing is creating more community there. Lots of different ways to do that. I think you know, you guys talking about, like a difficult moment is one way of creating community normalizing. Another way is with someone fees to just be like, hey, how are you doing? Like, do you need a hand? I think just super light touch like that with the mom like any any time, you know, I, I live near city. So I sometimes see moms Jolo kind of dealing with the stairs on the subway. You know, that's like an easy one, because you need a hand. But someone might be like, oh, would they think, like I would they find it strange that I'm offering to carry their baby. Like, that's what if they. I'm gonna be dangerous. But right. It's just it's always you can the person can always say, no just. Distorted a give everybody the benefit of the doubt and say, do you need me? How can I can I give you a hand and they always say, no, I got this, and then you go away, but it's simply just saying, like, we can make more community in our culture, and it can it can be positive community, and, like, let's see, let's see if I'm gonna spend the time sitting in watching another family, then maybe I have the time to offer to, to be supportive resource or Warren like it's also observe and do nothing because it might just be an opportunity for you to be brainstorming. What kind of parent you wanna be? And that's also fine to be like, you know, I think it's really important. Like when I see other families dealing with it this way and shows me that I wanna do with it that way. And, you know, that's also an opportunity to just grow and reflect and collect data in your own mind. And it may not be necessary or even appropriate to get involved with someone else family. Early while you're just kind of learning about yourself in your face, and, you know, so there's so many different ways to handle it. And I think the only rule is to that we should try to try to do our best to not put down each other. You know. So I think I think the, the, the moms, like, I can't believe you are bringing your child out without a hat. I can't believe you're could act that way. Loggers. That's the only thing you really shouldn't do because, you know that's just like there's no way that's not going to make someone feel bad. I have a question. What about the women are our moms out there who are dealing with judgement from family members a whole 'nother level is. Yup. Yet, yet. So I was just running a group yesterday. And I also talked to people about this stuff all the time for my podcast where this came up where it was a woman was describing that she had. Birthday birthday party for her son, and there was her family was there, her, her sister, and her kids and her mom and her brother and his wife and their kids and this woman, and her sister, both work outside the home and the brothers wife doesn't. And so in this moment of it was like a toddler three year old birthday party. So the kids were getting a little bit while there was fighting over Legos or something that would have at course you know, something. Any three year old's birthday party? But this, this mom felt that her sister in law was saying, you know, like that would never happen at Arbor day party because her her implications like, because she has more time as they at home to plan, the parties, and to like teach discipline in behavior. Her kids are better behaved. So she was like, whoa. What do I do because that's the vibe? I got. And it was a really interesting question. And the first thing I asked her was well, are you sure that she's communicating that directly to you, because maybe this is part of your production? You know, I, I think incomes of the moms working in the home versus moms working outside of the home saying, I hear from women on both sides that they feel insecure. And so maybe a mom who are outside of the home is having seeing a moment of chaos at her. Child's birthday party is like, oh, that other mom is judging me because she's. At home. And she thinks that I don't put enough time to teach my kids, good behavior. But maybe the mom who doesn't work outside the home. It's like I think those other women are judging me because I don't have a career and so I wanna talk about, you know, my, my all I learned in terms of parenting approaches invisible in, because I wanna feel good about myself in this birthday party with other women because I feel like less. Naval stay at home mom, I think, so often these, these judging each other moments are based on people trying to be up and build themselves up. So whether it's a stranger in WalMart or whether it's your sister in law. I think if someone is saying something or giving you a look that makes you feel judge, I think, to ask yourself are if they're bringing that negatively into the room, they're probably feeling negative about themselves hundred percent. Yeah. Where's there's something that I'm feeling negative? About myself or a warrior of postion, and I'm like, feeding it in the look on their face. But maybe that's coming from my insecurity. And, you know, I think you can always like ask questions of people, you know, just like just like you can ask in WalMart. How can I be of held? You can always like ask someone you know, is there is there something you're thinking that you would offer as suggestions to me, like, or am I am I reading into it like you can always ask and other mom, what they're thinking? But so healthy. Lead with the affirmative. Is there something on your mind that, that, that you wanted to share it like what, or is it just me? I mean that always give someone the opportunity to clarify miscommunication or or to say like. Yeah. I was thinking, maybe like, if you put the Legos like, if everybody got a pile of the same size that would help and it might be migrate like, oh, I never thought of that. No. But I think it's just like a giving each other benefit of the doubt and leading positively, even when someone is maybe bringing negative negatively into the room to be like, oh, were you trying to be helpful, you know, like turn it around to the positive, and I think it's all of that creating supportive community. And when you lead with the positive you're going to get a positive feedback loop from your friends from your family members because I really do think women at the end of the day want to support each other. They don't wanna cherish other down. Right. I mean that's we all talk about it. How we all like mom's supporting moms? It's kind of like this trend in a community. It's kind of movement that's out there. But yet we all still judge each other. It's yeah. And I think we do it to other people when we don't even realize it totally. Yeah. I guess that's what's great about mine in Carly's relationship as we parent, not like crazily, like huge differences or whatever, but we've parent differently. Yeah. And our experiences have been pretty different. But we, we are we're lucky that we have each other because her, and I can sit down and have conversations and hear each other out, and there's really there's really no judgment, and I feel, very, very lucky to have that actually. Yeah, no wonderful and a good model to people. And, you know, I, I like to make analogies like food diet is one of them, so like you, you all know, groups of friends, we're like someone's vegetarian and someone's like not or someone off out the hall, and someone's gonna have a glass of wine, and if it's someone's gluten free in someone's not. It's like. City, the table with someone ordering food differently. You both wanna share a meal together in order and enjoy each other's company is we understand that we don't have to eat this thing in order to respect each other know that, that that person's making the right choices for them, you same with relationship like some people, marry their high school sweethearts, some people are on their second marriage, and doing great because that was openly. What was right for them? And so, like those are no -ment in our culture where yeah. People do judge each other around food around relationships. But I still think, parenting, remains the much more fragile place where when you see someone else doing it differently. It's your first thought is often not like oh, you know, different strokes are different folks, which is like how we all live our lives. We're all different humans. Biologically quo. Truly psychologically, there's no reason we should all be eating the same having relationships that look exactly the. Same. But the same is true for parenting. All of our children are different. Our family constellations are different and our personalities of what feels right to us or different it diversities. Good thing, you know. So I guess that's that's it's wonderful that you guys can celebrate that in your friendship. Yeah. I all I just think if we're all the same that would be so boring. Even like one of my friends, Heather the other day texted me, my friend, Heather is very like outspoken about lots of things. But that's one thing I love about her because she's so passionate. And she gets on all these, like, you know, arguments about all of these different things on, like Facebook, all these people, and she sent me a message, and she said, I hope that you are never offended by anything that I say, when it comes to vaccines, and I was like Heather one thing I love about you is how passionate you are about things and I love how different we are. I was like, I would never be offended by anything. You say I was like I love you for being exactly who you are. And she was like, thank you so much for saying that, and, but it was also like a beautiful thing for her to come to me and be like, hey, I know we think so differently about topics. But I don't want it to affect our friendship, it won't. Right. I just and Jade Jade is like. The warrior who goes through birth with no drugs and I'm like, kidney, the drugs, drugs, breast pants forever, and breastfeed for like a couple of months, and I'm done, and we both like are so supportive of both of those things, you know. I think one trick for this I is, is just called. Speaking from the I it's, it's like a really tool good in your release romantic relationships, too. But it's it's good with friends and it's just basically saying what you need. So I feel this way about what I want with medication or not at my birth. This is my approach to breastfeeding. Like, I think would sleep this really works. Well. And so to be really, really Spence too. When you're talking about your own choices to remember to use the word. That's so true, you know, and this is true in, in relationship to like let's say you're talking to your partner about. Well, like didn't I talked about, like I'm feeling little? We'd be around the second pregnancy even though even though, of course, we want this baby. Like for me. It's also sad about ending that time with EMI. And so that might be different from how her husband feels, but if she's really careful to speak from the eye, and he's not earing per se. Right way to feel you're wrong 'cause you don't feel that way. You know, just like I like to be vegan, I am eating just it has nothing when you talk about yourself and speak from the I it, you're actually not talking about anyone else. And so it's up to all of us that when, when other people are speaking from the I'd not make it about, right? It's like they're not talking about. There's. You know and, and when worth beginning about our own choices, we have to be responsible to see from the eye, and that's it. I think that keeps things that keeps things like, really clear, but, but you have to be careful to not flip into this more universal language or saying, you know, getting into the u you gotta you gotta keep those boundaries of respect for other people, too. Yeah. Maybe that's what works for us because we both kinda share own stories with each other, as like your turn. Now. Like jut like I dunno. It's kind of like the I perspire. Yeah, don't know. I don't know. Walk in holid-. Self esteem, speak from the I you know, it's like you have to feel okay, being different from others, if you're going to speak from the I because it might not be some of your, your person, you're talking to you might not agree. They might love you. But they might not agree. You know, so you have to kind of work on your self esteem. I think if you're having trouble speaking from that is and, you know, I think that's that's great. Great not maybe I have self esteem Carly but not all the time. I view I don't really have in life. I've it with you. You're kinda like each other safe place total. We'll that was what I was actually just thinking. I was like, what's good advice, people who would say they struggle with all the same, and I would say talk about this stuff around people who make you feel good. You know, it's you don't you don't have to talk about this stuff, like if you know, who doesn't feel anxious invulnerable around parenting decision. So don't talk about it around the people who make you feel judge, you know, if your sister in law, it's just always puts your gives you goosebumps, just because it's just kind of nature of that relationship, then you can change this hop it, you can talk about more neutral things and talk about the things that make you feel more sensitive around people who just are the most accepting people in your life. We feel good around, and, you know, and it it's not gonna be everybody. Yeah, I guess that's yeah. You gotta take that to not everybody is going to make you feel validated. And that's okay too. Right, right. Yeah. And just like you know, we have certain, you know, people say, there's that expression about, like, oh, don't talk about money, politics or religion at a dinner party or something, you know, it's like it's basically, I think just to remember that keeping your boundaries is always a safe option that if you feel emotional about something you don't have to be public with it. You can just keep it private it with the people who are like your real, TLC people into you. Feel a little bit stronger wait to wait and share things intil. You can do it from the I 'cause if you're feeling too fragile and you need allegation than maybe I need to go to your friends who really just always was do up and always make you feel like you know, the response centre be gentle. It's always okay to change the popica- from parenting conversation, like if you just don't feel like you can handle it. Yeah. As they just get. Emotional. Right. They're kind of like you're talking about your own children, but you're also talking about your own emotional history. Right. Every parenting conversation is sort of a conversation about the family come from, and that's where these things can actually just go really, really fast. And that's really what I've been learning for my conversations with women on the podcast. It's sort of, like what ever were talking about whether it's parenting after divorce or do you want to have a second childer for two story, or frustrating or back to work story. There's a lot of the allot of the sort of inner layers of feeling have to do with, like, well when I grow up, I thought this when I when I grew up, I thought, then there's this from my mom or promise myself that when I had my family I wanted to do this differently from what I saw with my siblings. And so, I think just know that if you're feeling pretender invulnerable, it probably is touching on something from your childhood experience, because that's our. I family story right? Like before your mom your child and family. And that's our first place. We learn and develop these kind of more tender sensitive reactions, if things 'cause we're remembering what it's like to sort of even from the other angle as children with always okay to take us back like, no, I don't wanna talk about this right now, because some of this stuff can just be more connected to your private ceiling, Yano. I always weird, especially with Tanner like if something like that's happening. I use the word trigger that would really very triggered right now Carly, but it is, it's an that's when you kind of can notice. Oh, it's something deeper. Totally. Yeah. Yeah. That's exactly right. I think trigger. I think just pushing a button, like, we all are made of sort of like a quilt of different memories, and some of them are armor, tender patches. Right. And you never know when you're going to touch upon someone's button like something for you that sort of an interesting topic of debate, or I read this article today might for someone else, be super super sensitive because of their history, and they may not even know that they're feeling sensitive for that reason. But this just like you're speaking from the I whenever you sort of unintentionally precipice on someone else's sensitivity buttons. It's say, like, okay, you know, to take it as in firmness and sort of take a step back and go back to your I. 'cause we all like that's part of what is beautiful about human relationships. We all have different stories. That's what makes things interesting and also complicated. Yeah. No. For sure. It's it's a lot of layers. I was thinking about what you said about how people don't always say or like you. You think that they're thinking something, but they don't they're not actually thinking that because evident, I go to therapy, and the other day, he said something like I was like, well, Evanson symbol of on. He's like that is not what I meant at all. That makes me so sad that you thought that what I meant. And I was like you didn't mean it like that. And he's like, no. And I just think it's so you know, pulls over in our friendships and, and things. But it's so it's also so strong, you know, in our relationships and also it's you know having babies so hard when you have this relationship with this man, and they don't understand because they, they didn't grow it. They didn't it didn't come out of their vagina, you know. They don't understand the emotions that women go through because of the hormones and all of this. How would what would you say is the best like advice for new parents when a woman like feels very alone doesn't and the guy just doesn't really understand? Because he's not a woman like yeah, you know what? I mean I do I do. And I think they're all different sorts of reasons. People don't understand. I think some of them are related to the, the sort of basics of physiology in the hormones, and the physical experience, but just like you were talking about different female friendships between different mothers. You know, sometimes you've gone you both delivered a baby. And yet, you still don't under Spencer to spirits, because even within pregnancies, they're so different fizzy logically physically. You know, some people need to have a C section for some anytime ical reason, the other person, wouldn't just because their body is put together a diff-. Way. So it's like it's like they're all different reasons. Why we can feel isolated in our friendships with other mothers or in our relations with our spouses or other partners for our own parents, even, you know, going back to this woman yesterday who, who is spilling upset about her system, the birthday party. She also felt like her mom and her sister had this on because her mom was a stay online. And so it's like there's so many different constellations of how we feel misunderstood. My first advice is always about wealth care because I think I think that so often these kinds of irritability moments where we where we feel more isolated or where we assume that someone is judging us, when maybe they're not we're, we're, we're just kind of like our guard is up. I think that so often in new motherhood is related to physical and emotional depletion in because, you know, it's just it's. Just kind of everybody knows that when you're sleep deprived. You're more emotionally sensitive, when you haven't sort of done the things, union do needs to take care of yourself, whether it's exercise, go to the dentist. Get a her cot have a moment by yourself to check your Email when you're feeling like there are just things that you're so behind on to just enhance or regulate your own basic wellness. It's very hard to be open minded to other people. So when other people, it's kind of it requires a sort of emotional durability, and ten com in order to hear other people and not take things personality. But when you're walking around with that fee Cup whether because you're exhausted or because you're just you've been taking care of others so much and not taking care of yourself. It's very hard for genera- me someone else and be like where are they coming from? What are they thinking? Maybe they didn't mean it. You know that requires you kinda you can only do that. If your Cup is ball and end Phillies kinda like you can't really interact with someone else if your feelings super depleted. And so the first question when you're having a miss feeling this under skid is feeling alone is to say like how can I reconnected my? Oh, what do I need to do physically emotionally? Socially intellectually cleaning up my sinuses figuring out stuff with my career like what are the areas of my life, but I haven't been taken care of for my self, and how do I get a card base for that first, then once I'm feeling a little bit more put together? Then I can maybe looked look at my relationship and just do the work. That's required to speak to say like listen in, in my experience, just like again, I mean, I keep going back to j just because we had that conversation. But it was like. If it's a difference between you and your partner. It's like I I'm, I'm pregnant, I'm feeling all these things, I'm feeling. We'd be maybe it's my hormones. That's what that's what I'm going through. You know, I don't I don't know if you understand maybe it's because the, their mind hormone the net, your hormone, you know, and I think to just tell your partner how you feel became from the I and to do your best to ask them for what you need. I think a man other really important. Tip is to set up your partner to succeed. So what that what I mean by that is to is to figure out what you need from them in order to feel better. That's so much more productive than just telling them what they're doing wrong to tell them how to do it. Right. Right. Which I will admit I have definitely been guilty of. And also like with the self-care thing, too, I feel like sometimes as moms because I've been guilty of this, too. It's almost like a martyrdom, totally guests. So I almost feel like I have to. Put myself aside because because this baby needs everything from me. And then I almost live in this, like, I don't know if martyrdom is a word, but like I live like in this, martyr mentality and then and then my husband can definitely sense it. So then he has like, oh, God. I can't even talk to her right now because if I if I say anything, she's gonna come out me, but, like look at all I'm doing, you know, kind of like this, it's hard to get out of that, as a new mom to feel like it is. And then I think I think people really struggle with feeling guilty when they away from their babies to focus for themselves. And I think the hardest things are things that feel like not like they're not necessities. People say, I can leave my child to go to work, but not to go to the gym, and I'm just like, you know, wait just because you had a baby. Your physical health is no longer important. I mean you need to exercise to maintain your physical health, and that's important, compressed to have physical energy. To care for your child to be a model for your children that, that physical health is important. You want them to be healthy. I mean it's just not optional it's not like once you have a baby's stop having needs you. We, the, the we as human beings will start to break down if we stopped taking care of ourselves. And you, you don't get a gold star of your sacrificing everything, you know, like I feel like that's what I would tell myself like I'm putting so much Sakr I'm sacrificing so much I get a gold star like knowledge, take care of yourself. That's even better. Go on. What does I go on? My on my mental, also look as new moms you try to do like everything you try to everything yourself, and it's so hard to ask for help, because you feel like as a new mom, you should be able to do it all, and it's such a vulnerability to be like, hey, I really need help right now. Like that. Yeah. It's so it's just such a hard thing to even ask because, you know, like I, I remember at the very beginning I was like I can do it all I can do it all. And then I was like, no I can't I'm losing it. You know. Right. People are saying that asking for help as a sign of weakness because right, people feel done. I think this goes back to your own child at history. I think you know, you everybody, whether or not it's a plan pregnancy or not. I mean, people have all sorts of feelings about motherhood, but no one wants to be a quote bad mother. And I think that's because we all have years and wounds for moments in our child's and no matter how. How beautiful our childhood was were sort of our needs met, and you never want your child's feel bad. You never want your child to feel like they're not getting what they need. But totally have to get help from other people. It doesn't have to always come from you that your baby is getting, you know, cuddling and attention, it can come some other people and it has to, because you have to step away, and take care of yourself enough in order to keep having emotions to generously give to your child, and think it's your, your friends and your family members, and particularly your partner, you know, I think this whole expression of being touched out, you heard that. Yes. It's this thing that people talk about when they're kind of trying to describe all the factors that lead to people having less set in new parenthood. And of course, there's physical recovery. There's hormones, but I think this thing I'll being touched out. I to think when you're. Holding a baby all day or breastfeeding people kind of tugging at you. I need I need that need, I think when your partner comes to and wants to be romantic and you experience, that as them needing something for you. Like what if they're just wanting to give to you what if they're wanting to share and make you feel good rather than asking you to take care of them? And I think touched out, is usually a sign that you haven't been taking enough time to care of yourself, because you need time away from taking care of kids to take care of yourself. If you're gonna any ban with left to also just share and be remanded with your partner so much that goes back to self care. It's really really important for healthy balanced parenting. And in marriage was parenting begin. Yeah. No. I think that's great advice. I like you said, it's I always have to tell myself this, and I talk about it on my Instagram, a lot, too, but it's just you can't give from an empty. Cop. And so you have to tell yourself back up and Indu an and doing that you are actually enriching your child's life. And that's something I have to remind myself of because I'm definitely guilty of that. I would like to ask you a question too about kind of on the other side because we've been talking a lot about new moms. But what about advice for moms who have dealt with miscarriage or infertility? Yeah. Yeah. So we talk about this in the book and I talked about this, a lot on my podcast. You know, I was just talking to a woman who I think we're gonna hurt her stories coming out in two weeks on motherhood sessions. She had such a hard time getting pregnant with her first and had gone through several miscarriages and had a really tough around with VS and you know, is has a four year old is wonderful. But now she's her, her partner wants to have a second child, and she's just like I don't know if I can go through it again. Then it was, you know, grueling the first round. I mean it's just it's so much more common than I think people discuss miscarriage is extremely common for Tilleke issues as well. And I think to just know that it's not failure. It's not your thoughts, either biologic of then, you know, so much about pregnancy and parenting, by the way, is out of our control. And I think that's scary. Like we wanna make a plan. We wanna say okay, I'm gonna have my I am. I second are going to be based at that doesn't like no, this is this is biology. Okay, there or it's like an adoption waiting, sometimes not algae, whatever it is. It's, it's not gonna be fully on under your control. So many of these factors are just happening on a cellular level. And so it's not what you're doing wrong. That is the reason thinking going according to plan. It's just that these are very, very complicated. Things that involved, so many factors that you can't control. And so two just be kind yourself to know that, it's, it's not your fault, and does it, you really can do whatever makes me feel better. Sometimes that's talking to other people in telling them, what happens sometimes keeping things perfectly private because that's better for you and your boundaries. But to know that lots of people who don't talk about it have gone through miscarriage and fertility issues. You're not alone. Yeah. No, that's very true. I personally went through miscarriage four years ago, and I just recently came out with it, and I'm just now, dealing with all the emotions. But since I did start talking about it. I've had so many women reach out to me, and it's just crazy. I mean, it's, it's sad that so common, but it has helped me heal and just connecting with other women because I'm like, wow. You, you had a really similar experience myriad of very different experience than me, but it's just it kind of like you were talking about earlier, just the community part, I think, has been really great for me. Yes. And I think that's just goes back to other people buttons teaches never know you never know what someone else has been three. So when you're celebrating, you know, having a baby shower or or celebrating your new baby. You never know who you're talking to has maybe going through miscarriage that day like you just never know. And I think what's really special is when you've been on both sides of it, right? Maybe. A miscarriage and are in a really joyful, and celebrating new baby. You really can empathize with with the other prisoners experience. And that's what always comes back to speaking from the on, because it's just it's like people can say, I'm having a hard time, you know, Bella breeding miss because I'm still filling out about my own miscarriage. And that's just them talking about what they're going through. They're, they're, they're not saying you're doing anything wrong by announcing your pregnancy, there's fighting within their heart that today. So I think there's there's, there's enough to go round for us all to support each other because I also think so many of us have had these experiences from different angles at different arms license, the combination of celebration in hardship. And so when you're in when you're on one side, remember, it'll be another day. We're on the other and just keep creating community and supporting each other and respecting people's down as important to. Yeah, that's I wanna talk about your book because. I do feel like everything you've said is included in your book. I did I listen to it on audio book it, I loved it. I just feel like it's resource. Yeah. For new moms out there, pregnant women, and so your book is named what no one tells you. I'm just curious. Why did you name your book that, and what is it that you feel swept under the rug and not discussed enough? Yes, this, which I co-authored another wonderful reproduction psychiatrists after burned. It's really about all of the question that women have come to us with in our combined thirty years of working with women who are going through different. Emotional transitions around. Imagining other head patilally stories, dealing miscarriage, being pregnant the first year of parenting, it's really just kind of a chronological compilation of the most common things that people come to us, and tell us behind closed doors in our offices, psychiatrist. But. We've noticed it's much less common that people talk about openly in public. So what no one tells you just like we were just talking about miscarriage despite common. What? No one tells you is that contends. You won't want to breastfeed. You know, it's, it's someone who has wonderful intentions. It's just may not be the right choice for them. What no one tells you that sometimes your friend aren't able to support you because they're dealing with their own kind of baggage or their own history that it can be released scary to wait for genetic screening results that birth can be beautiful experience or it can go totally in another direction. And, and that's often highly out of your control. No matter how much you plan, all of these aspects of I think, peop- the things that think number one, what no-one tells he was so much of this is going to be out of your control. Number one went, what Noah. Tells you even though having a child is like one of life's most beautiful experiences. It's also complex and emotions like ambivalence or feeling alone. Or anything sad in moments, when you're also feeling happy are absolutely common and that we need to talk more about these things because everyone is feeling them. No, no one is one hundred percent. Happy all the time. That's just that's just not how people are put together like logically. You know, and this is a major life transition, that's hormone. All that's physical identity and change. It's hard even if it's a welcome beautiful changes hard. We know that with moving into a new home, you can be happy that you would beautiful new house, but it's really hard to figure out where to put everything and, and just like get things in order and having a child is like, not only a new house. It's like new how new people in it. New new a new new body while you're walking. Round the house and everything in your life is being kind of shifting in this, in this kaleidoscope. So it's the book is really a guide to what to expect emotionally when you're expecting and to begins with the first trimester, and it goes all the way through the end of your first year of parenting, and it's just the most common things that people have come to us Athen questions about that have been complex along the way chronologically, giving his is to the wide range of natural, normal things that people go through, and there's also one chapter and post-partum depression, but the majority of the book is not about postpartum depression. It's just about the wide range of complex experiences that people have, and there's so much out there that's about how your body changes or how to prepare for the baby and parenting guides. This is nice reuse the guide for you and your head, and your heart, and it's just hasn't really been put out there by experts, so we're really excited that here responses from people. And I hope. To get feedback about, like, what, what people think we should ask or change, or, you know, and, and I welcome people to come find me on Alexandra sacks MD on Instagram or on, at my website to give me feedback semi comments. I love to learn from every month story. So the book is really just the beginning platform for conversation. Keep building on and adding to what no one knows you. And. Yeah. And what did you what did you learn? And what did you wish someone will view, and I keep continuing and expanding the conversation. Yeah, I appreciate I mean I when I got your book and I started reading it was like, oh, my gosh. Like, why was this not created sooner? And so, thank you so much for actually being an advocate for, for women and moms, because this book, I it's a really good resource, and I feel like every, every pregnant woman should read it. My pleasure. I really I really am hoping to help on. It's so it's so wonderful to from people that is useful resource. So I'm really hoping that we can keep, you know, both having rushing advocacy. But also talking about the wide range of natural transition that has nothing to do with mental illness. It's really just about given to human psychology. That's really what the bulk of the book is. And I'm so glad that feeling useful to you. And I loved learning learning women about what they're going to. Yeah. Absolutely. Everyone also needs to check out your podcast motherhood sessions because it is just. It's just so insightful about so many women and their struggles on their strength. It's necessary to listen to it's real women to sharing their brain. It's really raw right? Listen, this is raw and it also takes very good podcast host to get to the wrong people say, thank you. And I think the book and the podcast really different the book offers practical advice and information, and it's a really helpful guidebook for anyone who's pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant, or is a mom in the first year, the early years of parenting contest is the place to just go and feel less alone. You're hearing other women stories and I think what the feedback I'm getting is that so many people are saying, wow, I can't believe that.

I feel like she tried to answer those questions and a broad spectrum for everybody who out who's out there listening. And I encourage you guys to go follow her on Instagram because a lot of her stuff really resonates with me. And if you have any sort of specific questions, I would definitely go on there, and I'm sure she would be open to answering. She's so great, and so definitely check her out because your mental health matters. And I think that's the important part of what we're trying to get across. Here's your mental my mental health matters your mental health matters. And if you need help seek it. Absolutely. I do wanna finish off reading another part of this article because it's so good. And then we'll get. To the affirmation of the week. But it says, I think there is a particular shame. That is often felt by moms when it comes to mental health and often, manifest itself in guilt. We don't like to say we can't cope with our children. We don't want people to think we are bad parents. We don't want our children to see as struggling, we went to be everything to everyone. But there is no shame if you were suffering from visible illness, or physical condition, there'd be no embarrassment and no worrying about asking for help. The same should be fell about mental illness, and the people around these moms should be making them feel that way we have to talk about it. We have to be brave until people to normalize it and to help those people that really don't get it to understand. We have to make it easier for moms to go to their GP. Ask for help, we have to stop the loneliness and 'isolation that comes with not being able to talk about it. So I guess is just kind of like if you feel like you're one of these women that is a part of the statistic just. No your mental health matters. That's all I really I guess, wanna say and seek help. There's no shame in seeking help. I love I love help. Yeah. And I wanted to say that I know Alex Andrews said that her book doesn't really address, postpartum depression. There's only like one chapter on it. But if you are one of those women out there, who feels like do I have postpartum depression, something does feels off something? Not quite right about how I am feeling inside know that you aren't alone and there is help out there and don't be afraid to just reach out, somebody absolutely are afra- mation this week goes along with mental health. I think one thing that helps me when I'm feeling. All sorts of emotions is just knowing that if I give myself a little bit of self love that, you know, maybe it'll help for five minutes, maybe it'll help for a few days, but it does help. It's just I think the step to self love, sometimes it's hard to get there. It's like going to the gym putting on us in getting in the car to go is the hard part, and then you get that in your kind of. Okay. You know, the hard part has to be intentional. I freight we have to make ourselves a priority, and that is one thing we don't do as moms as easily. And so just setting aside. Five minutes check in with yourself. I do that. Holy I do that almost every night when I get into bed, and it really helps I talked to myself, and I tell myself, okay, everything that happened today. I'm gonna breathe through it, and I need to let it go. That's something that gets me. So so we do have to be intentional. So this is seven things to remember for epic. Self love number-one. You are only human, and humans are not perfect. Number two. Everyone makes mistakes and it's okay if you do to number three, you're totally unique. And no one can judge what you have been through number four. You are worthy of love number five perfection. And having no flaws equals boring. Number six you should be proud of yourself for simply writing this roller coaster of life. And number seven comparing yourself to others is useless. I think if I could read those things every day to myself, I think I'd be in a better mental place. Actually, I feel like I need to put those on, like the back of my phone all, yeah. Just every day, something I hold every day, right there. Bom 'cause I mean, really like lots of these are about like perfection and not judging yourself. And then, as I think something that most of us do all day every day, and we shouldn't. And honestly, I've never ever wanted to be boring and they're right having. No flaws is boring. Flaws are beautiful, and they make us unique and I love being unique and you should. That's really beautiful actually. All right, guys. Thank you so much for listening. We will be back with you next week. Actually, Jade will be in Italy jealous mud. I know I'm actually really excited, but we're traveling with Emerson, so please keep me in your thoughts. So evident, I will be taking over the podcast next week, and we have some interesting things to talk about. So be sure to tune in Evans on, there's always going to be something weird interesting. He has to say I'm intrigued to tune in. I'm like I need to listen to this. I wanna know what you guys say. Yeah. I mean, everyone should tune in because we have some, we have some interesting things up our sleeves, but thank you so much for listening in. We will we will get back to you next week by by. From the Westwood One podcast network.

We have a new website, watch Chad dot com, and we're about to switch, our merch marketplace marketplace over so I don't know. I we're having some issues with our checkout system anyway. Watch dot com. Say watch dot com watch Chaz. Oh, and we have the new party foul shirts that are coming out. They're going to be like quarter sleeve. They're awesome. They say PF af and they're really funny and they're really useful. And for those of you don't know what PF af means from shirts. Probably not for you. Is it really that hot studio? Twenty two we're on the third level of Gehenna, folks. Like I'm not saying it's hot. But when I went out to get coffee earlier, Lucifer, said, sup. Temperature bro. It's hot studio twenty tubes. Like why do you think my shoes are off? I'm so down to my underwear. And my underwear is actually down here in this leg right now, just melted all the way down my leg. So Sochi because of the sex strike. My. Into my MandA factor. And he goes, you have your testosterone level so low, I have female patients that have more than you do. So. Hey, truth hurts more facial hair to what it is. It's face. I like a little dirty q tip this anyway. It's hot in here right guys. It's hot. Okay. All right. What you got. Okay. What's been Steve's biggest party foul? Nope. Moga MacKenzie said that they could ask anything park, we don't have to answer come on years ago. The night that I told Steve, that one day I was going to hire him to travel on the road with me. Let me just say we were at a friend's pool behind their house and. It was swift suit optional and we found that out because Steve was the only one skinny dip. Yes, D was the only one going jellyfish. Look at shark fin up. He could really swim on his back. It's amazing. Your fans wanna know. Give them what they want. So mazing party has fans. They, you gotta do you gotta die, hards man. There's a couple out there. Yeah. Somebody asks for an autograph with still weird to me. Somebody sent me a message about wanting an autographed picture of me, and so like J they'll like I don't see him or responded. So Jade sees them. Jay made me sign something she sent him off. And so she sit one but she's the guy center, a message back after he received. No, I want I won't want to everybody like he wants a picture you side. He was a big party fouls signed is so what we're going to do is already talked to the guys over in, in, in the think tank took to Alexander. We're going to do like a an ventures poster with all of our faces on there and, and yeah. So David James, you're getting your autograph pictures and you go we're all going to sign it, but we're going to have a fun and everybody regularly on the show. So it'd be party Phalle these Natalie it'd be a puppet master. It'll be the Queen over there. I think I might make an appearance. We'll, we'll put Bucci Sean and metro Jason on here. We'll have to bring Heaton on heating could be like the evil super villain, gene. Loki like a guardrail. Just kind of put heating on there. And then we can put gosh, there's who else who. Oh my gosh. You leaving out. That takes care of everyone Jade Jade. Yeah. That's why my life right there. Yeah. I'm just kidding. I knew all along. She was going to be the center, heart anyway. Oh my Lord have mercy. So wait or not answer that question. That's great. That was a great that was. I don't know. That, that's the worst one but it's probably up. There's close Natalie. Oh, any advice for a C? Dallas. Cowboys cheerleader hopeful. Oh, there's a lot of advice. Let's keep it about thirty seconds. Okay. Getting shape. Do your research, do your homework. You know, they, they took a test last weekend over Cowboys knowledge history current events, you gotta know your stuff before you walk in last year. I think a girl was asked about hashtag me too, and she had no idea what they were talking about. And that went on national television, and it cost her 'cause you gotta know at least be able, if you don't know to fake. You know what you do know? So that would be it don't care if you know who you should know who Ed, too tall Jones, is you should. Yes. And you know, ring of honor, you know, those guys Mitchell Novacek, you probably need to know who Jerry Jones's would be helpful, you need to know you need to know that they're you know that you don't hit home runs in football. Yeah. So it'd be able to kick kick your leg row. High party fell Steve could probably actually give a great synopsis on what people should know because he's watched every episode making the team that was great advice, Sean, Sean good, high kick. That is wrong with us. Pretty good. All right. What you got. How did Chad and party foul? Steve meat. Oh, matt. Grinder grinder dying that was pretty grinder days. I think we're in a bar in Fort Worth. I was turning for. Mark McKinney man at that time, maybe or out with one of the other band setup worked for and we became friends over the years at mutual friends, but I'm one of those guys, if I go to the show somewhere kind of like the hang out back. I'm always one of those guys at check out the merch both, you know, I'm always seeing who's got t shirts try to support this. That is the t shirts. Nobody's getting rich off t-shirts as your Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw. I try to that's what pays the gas to get up and down the road. So I always try to see by some Cousy about t shirt, whatever and always hang out back there at the merchant. So I like every Texas musician out there, I know. They're mircha's. I think we were hanging out and Chillan. And I just like Steve's easy to know. Steve's is easy to know. Steve, Steve never meets a stranger and Steve makes friends with everybody. Steve never has a crossword for anybody unless you cut him off in traffic. And then he's Kershaw little, he's got a little elemental road rage there. But now I mean. Yeah. Steve's a friend, everybody. And so I watched Steve. For a few years kept telling dude, but, like here's a dude who wasn't what do drugs. He wasn't a drunk. He wasn't getting stupid. You know, wasn't getting in fights. He loves his wife and I was like I liked this guy. I want him. I want him a part of what I'm doing. So that's that's told him a couple years ago, Steve, one of these days McCall on you and it's going to be time. And he was like, yes, sure. I laughed. Yes. Sure he's like, what you go hire me to do here. He sits. And you know that PF af is gonna make Alridge. I hope so it's a beautiful. It's a beautiful shirt. It's like a it's like a I kind of went with that ole stylish like seventy style design. That's kind of it's, it's sharp. Yeah. What do you see it? I got pictures of it. I'll show it to you. Good. It's beautiful girl shirt, too. You're right. We can't be quarter sleeve. I know. But I thought we also. Well, we do. That's the star spangled banner, shirtless co cathode. Yeah. Those are those are off the presses right now. They should be here any day. We need any moment. I'm gonna wear your show. What you got. Me. I like this question. Thank you guys. What is tell us your strangest fan? Encounter chad. Well, one of the strangest ones was like I do the videos, and they're like a they're like therapy for me because it just get it off my chest. Right. That's how it started had no idea when the camera phone up in the dashboard on the million people can start watching these videos for me. It was just get it off my chest. And I don't go back and watch the videos. And so I, I don't know what I've said, apparently I'd done one about adult undergarments, like depends diapers men. So this lady comes up to me in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. And she says she's meant to bring a pair of depends for you to sign and I was like, what she talking about. And so, you know, me, I'm just kinda quick witted. I said, well, let me just sign the ones you're wearing, and that could have gone a bunch of different ways. Right. That could have been of offensive or whatever. But she was good natured. She said she was funny. She goes, oh, no baby. I want you to sign some dry ones. So, so that was that was pretty that was that's one, I can tell the strangest one, I'm not gonna tell on this people follow you into the bathroom, and Alison, my good friend and assistant has snatched them out by their ponytail, women have followed you into the men's restroom. And men, I had a guy in San Jose, California who came up and he was, like I just won't let you know that you have gay fans. We're here and I'm like, I know that. Yeah, I had a dude who lives, a couple of hours, north of here. This is a couple years ago. He offered me a sexual encounter, and I'll just let your imagination drift off to. He said it will be the best you've ever had and it and it will be secret. No, it was really not. It was horrible. Oh. Actually and talk about false advertising. Driving hour and a half and rest area. You think you know, hey happen. Yeah. So I've had some pretty funny ones. I've had people that want to, you know, shoot me, stab me, kill me. You know, whatever, yeah. Whatever I love everybody man. I love everybody. You remember that lady said to us in Cincinnati? I still got a picture of all my phone is the very first picture saved up into the top of my album, because she wanted to take a picture about her husband. She said, that's my husband. Right. They're taking that picture. We'd been married forty five years when he's dead. She said, she's going to do was going to. Said she's going to be cremated. Put her ashes introduced beg running through one more time. That's disgusting. I don't need to know that, that that's I'm sorry. I just lost fans for saying that I just lost friends right there for saying that they said they said it. Yeah. Filter people really filters filter, let's, let's keep one right there. Have you ever needed security? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. We always have security at live shows, we always have security guards and at times, we have traveled with private security in. Yeah. We always have security because people are crazy. Yeah. They're nuts. You know, the difference between me and a lot of people who talk about politics. I'm really not a flame thrower, like I'm not out there fingers and say you're going to hell for this or whatever, or you're evil because you don't agree with me on some political stance, but it still some people still get ticked off over it. But we always have security, and I promise you, I'm always the first one to go and shake all of their hands. Make sure they're good that night. And hey, you wanna sandwich from back here, anything like that. So. I love everybody everybody loves me. Don't, don't pay attention to security is the first at crafty. And they showed me. Yeah. Anyway. So Hayes one what's been your favorite podcast episodes so far. Honestly, the ones with Heaton the high balls with heat. Great. Those are fun. But if you're gonna take a guest if you're gonna take a guest, I would I've had some good ones. I love the one the other day with James Robertson. That was fun. Phil Robertson was fun. I didn't know where that one was going to go, but a favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite Steve. I don't have a favorite, I love them all. Yeah. See that's a cop out right there. Do you have one? I like the one that y'all did with Jared Joseph, you're sucking partial. Well, no, I'm promoting. It was a good one. You know what? Oh, gosh. Her name is slipping my mind. But our, our hunter that one got a lot of kindle Jones that one got a lot of talk triggered. Right. But, you know that's. You should be making people talk. Well, this is nature of the game. You know, we come on here we do talk if all we did was sit here read the bible to you. You're going to tune out. I mean. Yeah. So, so get so and so, and I'm not diminishing that, but it's the fact that you're going to get, you know, drum and all this. We try to keep it on the edge a little bit, and make people think, but also laugh, we want to trigger you a little bit. That's the nature of what we do. I want to have people in here that I don't agree with, like having people in here that I can disagree with, and we can still be friends. I think it's fun to be able to see that, that's the beauty of me and Andrew Heaton when we debate these topics is that, that we laugh it off. And then we go to dinner, you know it. So that's the way the world works. You know, don't let the virtual world deceive you into thinking that, that's the way the real world is. So we have this trying to have fun of everybody. Yeah. I love hearing people's opinions on things even when the wrong, but no, I think you've got to keep people on edge. There's you got to keep this thing move. And you gotta keep it going. And look, I, I watch it sometimes I get bored. So. Right. I do but I but I know that they're gonna people say, well. Oh you just lost a follower. Thank you for following for the period of time that you did. I really appreciate you. But if one comment is gonna make you leave, you want really following anything like the other day, I had a lady who said you're drinking on the job, I'm leaving. And I'm like, okay, whatever. I mean, God bless you. I appreciate you. But. People came to your defense. I saw that one. A lot of people came to your defense. They're like, Jesus drank on the job, said that I said, Jesus, don't you bring Jesus into this? Well, I mean, you know. I mean, you know, this, I Mira call John jeopardy to he didn't just make wine. He made fats of it. So it's so anyway and his mama. Requested, that's what's what I love about that. Mom mom, we have fun in here. Yeah. I won't be able to feel like they're just sitting around hanging out. That's why to me, this is my favorite thing. I do it really is. I love doing these podcasts live sitting down. I love my family, which is you guys and just, you know good times. Yeah, they're all good. Steve, which got right for Natalie. Two part question, have you ever kissed girl and did you like it? Wait. That was my question. All right, Steve. What is it like traveling with Chad twenty four seven? That's you ask yourself a question. I just sit just like you seem on here like you seem live on stage. He's twenty four seven that way. It's the mowing. It was funny because these bills stays. That he just stuck his fingers in his ears because my mother say she's like, she's at Steve. How do you always just sit through Chad shows, and he's just like this and he put it? Yeah. Well. I mean, I guess we travel good together. We can't imagine anybody else the way we travel. I mean, you'd get sick of somebody, you get sick of your own spouse, traveling as much as we are together Allen, you know, airports and way because we're in stressful situations where we are always in an airport, always in an airplane always dealing with strangers. You know what my mother came to me the other day, we did a hometown show back in Augusta Georgia where group and everybody was back stage. They were coming up. They were hugging talk in and take pictures. And they were my mom's like I don't know how you do it. And I was like mom the differences. I know all those people like I've known those people my entire life. Imagine having to do that week in week out with strangers. Now. I love it because I love the small talk and for me, it's like a second show, the meet and greet is like a second show. I love to go in there and hang out with people, and just be goofy, and do all that kind of stuff. But, you know, you get a lot going on Stephen iron lot of stressful situations together, and we handle it. Good together. Yeah, yeah, I got a phone one. Where do you guys see the podcast in one year, hopefully in an air conditioned room? I'm with you. Yeah. You know go with the podcast is always been. So this is our temporary set. Studio twenty two in, in it's been greats fantastic. There's a lot of history here, actually love this room and. But we're going to be moving into another building. They're building out another set for us in our goal has always been, we want this to kind of be the narrative of, we're kind of hanging out in the man cave, or in the basement, just with everybody just talking chatting it up and having a good time, but we're, we're we're taking it. We're still going to have a lot of fun. But it's going to be a lot cleaner lines like they through this, God bless them, they through this studio together in less than a week. Just a few days, just saying here here we go. But this is going to be a little more of a talk show typeset where we can go in there. Everybody's got a little more space to have their space. We'll have a couch, where we can have more people on any given time as going to be a lot of fun. A lot of fun. Hopefully we'll take us a year to get in there. But see our goal in this is why it's important if you enjoy this, and you what we're going to do is I think that there's a way to take something like this and actually syndicated out, whether it would be a radio show or actually, a television show in television talk show where you could put this kind of stuff out there and make it really funny really entertaining with every day. I mean, everything that you enjoy about television. And talk live. We put music on it. We can put you know sketch comedy. We can cut away to these kind of things that are they're fun. And funny and monologues that are funny. And you know, it's I don't know sky's the limit. Anyway. That's my vision. We'll see what you got mine actually kind of went into the last one. But I really like this, when I want to answer it, what's it really like, really like working with Chad? Wow. The center of attention. I'll start. Go ahead and you guys can pipe into Candice, Mark. I'm the newest to the show. And so when you guys asked me to, to join. One thing that I learned really quickly as I really do believe that the Chad that you see on this podcast is the Chad, that you that you get I it's just it's you, you are, who you are. And I will say the thing that appreciate because obviously, I've said this before you have a brilliant mind, you, you probably don't sleep because you think so much. But there's, there's a lot of brilliant minds. You have zero emotional intelligence, and your emotional intelligence to me is through the roof because you can read a room, you in you, engage everybody, which I think a lot of talk show host actually don't do very well. They ask questions so that you can hear their opinions. That's the only reason why they ask you questions. I really feel like you ask questions because you are learning from everybody when people decide to unfold you. It makes me sad because I wish that everybody would realize that you come from a place of love you always do. There's never you know, we talked about my, you know, my high school sweetheart yesterday and being. Being, you know, but we've been to the shows, we love everybody you love everybody, you know, that doesn't mean you don't have an opinion, but so do they surely know? And as long as we're all coming from a place of love. That's what and sometimes that's what I feel like people are missing in politics today. There is no. There is no Lovin that there's just a lot of hate base. So I really mean that about you. I think you're one of the kindest people, and I think you do an amazing job of engaging everybody in the conversation to Europe. We'll be serious blow smoke. We will start pay you. If you start paying her mission. Candice, and Mark and probably pipe in. They're gonna be like it's good. No, I was gonna say I joined about a month after the show had already started. But it's it's like the greatest group of people you could ever hang out with. And it doesn't feel like work. I get up every morning super excited to hang out with these guys and film and interview some great guests and I don't know a lot of other people who could say that the absolutely love their job, and it's all down to the people, especially on so. Oh. Oh, I feel like it's my birthday or something. That is true. Look at me. Mark. Look at that face every day. No, the best first thing that we're on this show, is that moesha's? I worked on. It's very separate. There's the talent there's a production staff. There's a producers, this show is one team like one family. So that's the funny thing about it. Something picked up as soon as I started working with shed that it'll be different and it's definitely like that we have dinner together. It's, it's really big family. What it is. I think it's the funniest thing about we're big family. I was with my phone with my manager yesterday. And he was, you know, talking about this, and that differences, we could do at the podcast. I might look, we we're, we're growing together. It's not the Chad thing it's a it's a studio twenty two thing, and that's the family. You know, it it's all of us together. And that's I like kind of tearing down that fourth wall where you can see the people behind the scenes, and we try to do that, with Sean Jason on the humor me show, where, you know, their characters, you know, I did the last two shows, I did live shows boozy shell out, on stage won't say what I said to bring him out on stage. Everybody's clapping and cheering for him because, you know, I, I want everybody to have that element of reco- recognition and praise on because I you I couldn't go out in handpicked better people to work with. It's amazing. So they encouraged me and yes, I like Candice better than most of you, but, you know, that's fine. Anyway, probably my thing is I get to come into work every single day. Be myself sit with myself. Enjoy myself. You won't be good drought. Good. Good. Good. It's really such an honor to work with myself. The presence. Nobody. Nobody celebrates Steve like Steve, which brings me to a Steve question. What does party foul do as your tour manager? Ask him to. Somebody's gotta make his whiskey. State. Steve takes a lot of pressure off. You know, Steve make sure that the shows are advanced there's some moving parts to that making sure that the sound checks happen and stuff. The gear gets where it needs to be. And and you know we're on time. Listen, Steve has this bad habit of being a head of time? Like I know that most people like the opposite would be horrible like if you're always late Bucci show, if you're always late this something that's a problem. And so I'm happy that Steve is early two things, but like Steve wants to be thirty minutes early. But then he feels the need to be thirty minutes early to the thirty minutes early. So he's actually an hour early, and that's problematic, especially when you're trying to sleep that extra thirty minutes before seven AM flight at so, but no, we never been late. We've never missed a show. There's a lot. Stays baying on you're doing. Steve some seven hours, but now Steve takes care of everything. He he, he flirts with the ladies. You take all the pictures with them and pretty much. It's all about Steve. It is he sells teams Sonex sold PF af right? Steve cash checks cash checks clicked all the money. I make sure all the contracts are listen in line, I'm such an old man in the regard that I don't drive. I don't like when we go somewhere Jade all the driving. I hate to drive honestly, hate to drive, and I got so much going on. I want to just be where I can deal. So Steve does all the driving. And so anyway, stuff like that. Good stuff. I've seen Steve deal with you. When you're in a non happy place. Yeah, let's and you handle it. Well, I was in Vegas and I don't know what was happening and I didn't ask, but something was stressing you out. And we, you know it you and lost a lot of money that I know of it was something that had to do with that. And I just. Again. Steve handled that the way that goes mad at Steve, I feel like it. I don't think you're mad at me. I think we're having another issue that was, you know, I don't even remember now but it was not me, but I didn't know y'all. Well, so I didn't stick my nose and otherwise, I walked up and just been nosy. But I don't know what it was you. We deal with things within us that are can be stressful. Or just a. You know, there was this missionary that had come back after living twenty years in India. And, and someone asked him they said, you know when you were there, what were your biggest challenges in that jungle was at the Tigers was at the, you know, was at the pythons or things like that. And he said it was actually the mosquitoes and the NATs. And see, that's the thing that people don't realize is, there's not a lot of lions Tigers out there, waiting to each you. It's the little things that build up and then that really becomes the pest so living the life that we live. There's a lot of details. And that's one of the reasons why I love our crew so much again includes Sean Jason. One, they're amazingly talented, but they handle the details. And I'm learning to let go of a lot of details because people say, well, I'll get messages all the time. They'll say, well, whoever is handling chads messages. Would you please tell him and I'm like it's Chad ridden? These messages like if there's a comment on social media ninety nine point nine percent of the time it is me that's doing the responding. Yeah. It's so I, I handle those things, I'm learning to I'll never let that go because my social media, you don't wanna talk to one of my assistants responding to me. I that's. That's not a good thing. Become president, you're going to probably have to let it go gonna be like the Queen who just turns it or Instagram over to somebody. Alison I have finally turned over my travel scheduling, thank you to Alison. That think that somebody else it is. But let's. Booking flights hotels have done all of that stuff for five years now and taking care of those kind of things, people say, why didn't Steve do it? We'd be early he calls. No, no. I don't like four AM flights. So every trip is different every trip is different. So Allison's taken that over, and that's hard for me to delegate and let things go. But anyway. Would you ever take the podcast on the road? Oh, we're gonna we're gonna as soon as we can get this thing moved over into another studio. And we kinda get some moving parts here we can take these cameras out with us and microphones, there's a lot of live places I would like to go out into podcast interact with people, not the least of which I'd love to do what I've seen our buddy, Steven Crowder doing that go into an auditorium, like a theater auditorium, and, and have this show and bring the guests out. We could have some really big surprises and stuff and do that front of a live audience, a lot of fun. And in a bunker in a bunker. Yeah, we go hide out all by yourselves and good in the bunker live signal. But no, you guys have a preference of place. You'd like to do. The live show somewhere podcast from a location. You mentioned the bunker. So maybe Glen bunker. If listen to me, play our cards, right? We wanna Glenn Beck's bunker. From the bunker. Located at yeah, we're gonna we're gonna, we're gonna drop locations. Soga kill me for all this, this treatment service cuts out, right? Glenn quick, Cussing years ago. But I think we could bring him back into it. One fell sweep exactly the no, we're definitely gonna take it on the road. What you guys. Steven will you get the truck back has a dang, good question, dude? I'm hoping this week, hoping this week, that's four months, four months. They've had that Trump had I known road armor roadrunner along, this was going to take. It's been been an issue. We own three vehicles. Currently were driving rental cars. I won't even tell you why the Trump as you know, is gone there at road armor and it's going to be beautiful. When it comes back, I won't tell you about the two cars, though. Jay too. Even I'm not even gonna go I know anyway, for to meta, would you ever, this is this about the comedy tour though? Would you ever take it to Europe? Oh, yeah. Yeah. Sure. Sure. We're trying. We're working on that. Now, actually, you know, we, we've done some international stuff, but, but we're working on taking it to Europe. And I think what we do we have a huge fan base in, in the UK, a huge fan base in Australia. I know there's people right now, watching for both places. So God bless you guys and. November. We're going across the pond with November. We'll be in Ireland. We'll be there for a week. So I'm courage you to what's the website for that red red dirt pub crawl. Yes, there's going to be on that. Hey, come go with us. You can go with us on that. We're gonna have fun, a lot of Texas, musicians ourselves you sign up. Make sure you pick me as a person, you sign up under me. Yeah. Or Steve Bartow state power would be like more. Yeah. So anyway, we're gonna have a fun time. But I think I think the humor that we do. I think with that audience. It would translate. Very, very well in the UK live shows, because we're pretty blunt this folks are still pretty blunt, right? Yeah. Anyway, anyway. All right. Here's my last question. Y'all y'all can keep asking a few more. What's your filming schedule for the podcast? Why do you prerecord filming schedules? Primary on Monday, primarily on Mondays and somewhat on Tuesdays. We do Mondays because I'm still kind of in Rhode mode because I came back on Sunday from being somewhere else across the country and I can get up and come in here and knock it all out. Get it done. And we can deal with the Monday headlines that we typically do here. And then I usually come back in on Tuesday, because that's close enough to win. Stay to do the headlines that we get get it done. If I had my way, we'd come in here and do on everyday, but I gotta get back on the road, usually that starts winding up again around Wednesdays. We don't really do days off. I mean in my life we really don't even days off. I'm still doing something. LA calls me every single day of my life, every single day of my life and wants to talk business and things like that. And hey, I'm not complaining and God blessed. Hope it increases more and more. We have to find strategic ways within the day to get some rest. I got to be a little bit more covetous if you will about resting because I'm getting old. Join local area here. He's cage, every gated that kings do around getting shooting complain or I do. Bash. Where I don't know what she's doing where did you guys get Damon? Like you nearly. Big dude. But cookies. He couldn't carry my jockstrap back when I was quashing Shane, it was he wished nineteen eighteen World War One over, you know, I didn't know it was over a year because I was still walking through the freaky forest waiting California, we had cello Paerson you understand. Issue. I'm joking Leary. Oakley chart go. And I'm starting to feel like. Repeat assures here whole depends. Oh, I gave them wearing a nut brow right now, yet you haven't left until you shit on a toilet. And you hear a splash. Oh, all right next question. Dream guest for the podcast. Donald J Trump Donald J Trump. Let your dream gift present live. We've already asked Jenna Jameson. Okay. If you know you know. Who has responded favorably? We're gonna get uncle Ted Nugent on here. We're gonna get learned the cable pretty soon and. Cable already agreed to come on. It's, it's, it's a matter of low, so like candy see works miracles with getting the guests, like I'll send her message or whatever else say, here's a contact or she goes out and finds herself. But I think I think we got a good shot here, soon have a DJ TJ Donald Trump junior on and. I think that, that would be a fun podcast from the road, right in the Oval Office. Can happen. I've been to the White House, Natalie took a picture through the gate who's your guest that I was just sitting here thinking about that. I think any Trump in here would be really cool. Baraga bottle. I would actually I would actually love to. I would love to see you talk to Bernie Sanders problem with that bunny. There's an open invitation. It's not Kuba will make you wait in line just to come in, in the studio twenty to take him promote his book. Bernie Sanders, I'd love to have a Casio Cortes in here. It was so, like, like, like, and like, like, like, like, drink, maybe we have Sarah Gonzales come be a owes b. That's a good idea. Ten like this. Do that fun. Yeah. No. I don't know. Clint Eastwood would be fantastic. I think we could get Clint might have to go to him. But I think we could get Clint through our buddy. Jacob schick. We'll get Bradley Cooper on. We could get we could get who was just thinking about the sides. Clint I was thinking about. Chuck Norris Chuck Norris. We get here. It's hard to get Chuck out of Nevoso to Texas. I'll tell you is a fun talk. Is his brother Aaron Norse, who did all of his stunts, and executive produced all of this stuff? So Aaron nor stay some funny. Funny stories those of you have seen the, the, the stripper pole motel that we were in Naples, Florida. I was supposed to be staying at Aaron Norris's house that night and I was like I wanna drive that far out to the coast. I mean, he's fifty million dollars from the ocean right there where he lives, and we we went to the stripper hotel. And that, of course, the rest is history. We didn't know the stripper hotel at a poll in, in a mirror in the. Anyway, let's night we stay there. My skin crawl for three days. What else you got? I wanted to ask you, if you ever had it, sorry. Sorry party failed. Did you have a guest that you really want Brooke Brooke Burke, Knicks Knicks Sorenson knits back to the Dallas Cowboys chillers? The oh, have Mark candy. I was going to say Alex Jones, we're gonna get out shows where we gotta go to Alex. Yeah. Austin, that's another one, we're going to do on the road with Alex Jones inside the mind of Alex Jones. Golos. Nuts. Yeah, I love him. I mean, I don't agree with him all the time I trough he's out there. But you got Marcus, and I think it would ever happen. But always let Bill Clinton would be pretty on your shelf. Bring this sagoes. I can't wait area. Well, I'll tell you what she can't do it right now because she's contractually bound to another deal. But Paula Jones is a good friend, and she's become a good friend of the last couple of your, she's more than she'd more than happy to come on the show when she can is awesome. She asked me to escort her to the inaugural ball back when Trump inauguration. And I said, heck, no, she goes, why not like Paula already know yu-su. Not going anywhere with you. She's asleep heart though, I love her anyway. Anyway, was the question what you have. I wanna if you've ever had a legit stalker stalker one that you had to get not past tense like right now you have one. A few there. Yeah. His over the last couple of years, there some that. Like like we've woken up and had gifts on our front doorstep and things like that. So we had to take some measures there have been some things over the years that we've had to kind of get the law enforcement involved at least is this real thing going on threat. Whatever. Okay. You know, in you have to you have to check it out. And fortunately, we. We are connected very heavily to, like, my, my manager, who's Jewish. She's like should I, I have a Masada agent who is currently work protecting Bruce Willis, but we can pull him off that job. If you want him to, like, now I think we got it gave you Bruce can keep him. I don't think I need somebody with an Uzi. Anyway, if you had stalkers you were cheerleader. I did have I had I had one he works with her everyday. See you had to get some help on that. I did. I had as a very scary situation. I never met him before. But he just I think he felt like he knew me and won't be would that be a letdown. Just let them meet me. Then he'd been like never mind. I mean it I mean it was whatever was in his mind was much bigger than it really was. And the police got involved and helped out tremendously, my friend Heus Gracie got involved. Yes, he helped me out tremendously. And what, what do you do call you up said, do you want me to make this go? Hoist is a great. He he's, he's obviously Brazilian jujitsu the Gracie family. He's also a gun lover, he'd he's loves to shoot has fun. And so when he found out about this he said, do you need to make them go away? Now. Now, one that phone I like that, that really feel like he could, you know, so I think he took some measures to kind of help the situation and but the police really were the ones that. Help that interesting threats. What's been funny to me? Sometimes, I'll get messages or what's funny is Jade. My wife will get messages who say you need to pull your husband in. Because he's talking to my fiance, or whatever some gal in her miss. And if I ever see him out. I'm like, why don't you send me the message once? Why are you Senate at my wife? You was, but anyways like us because some catfish account that was using my name, or face to fiance trying to or, or what's crazier is somebody that sends me a message. And they're just saying, hey, love what you do. And I used to respond to me, like, thank you very much. Appreciate Allard early on. You gotta be real careful with that. Because people send you these messages, you respond being friendly and all of a sudden, somebody reads their account like a husband or something. And they're also now they think you're got some online thing going. I've had that happen. Yeah, give him the film's up. Yeah. And to the longest and I feel that so rude to do it like on my business page fan page, whatever you wanna call it. I had to put an automated response people. Send me messages. Like I feel that is so rude to do, because it's so impersonal, and I'm not an impersonal kind of guy, but you have to, like, at least you get some kind of response on. Sorry, I can't respond to you, but you gotta understand. I get I get upwards of twelve hundred private messages, a day that pop in just three. Twelve open them up there. They're all the tape there, there in Facebook, I'll be honest with the Facebook a couple years ago, actually said, basically, they said, we're going to have mercy on you. We see what's going on with your account, so we're going to put heavier filters on what's coming your way. And that's why people say, well, I sent you a friend request on personal page, my personal page grew at one point five million followers just personal page. We all have. Yeah. And they said, so Facebook shut it down. So that I couldn't see friend request because I was getting thousands of day. And God bless you. I mean, I wish I wish I could. But they put a limit at five thousand. Yeah. And yeah, and then people say, oh, you think you're big time, you got getting seventy more friends. Oh, yeah. I remember when I met you that one nine nine, then what's else is funny is I've had people who've posted public comments, and said, there's two funny things like I saw him out in public in Fort Worth, and all he was doing just going around. Flirt with the women trying to see who would take a picture with it. That's exactly what I was doing. That's why I really don't go out. I don't go out. And then there was somebody who said, I saw him leaving that concert that night and he had some brunette with him with glasses on. And they totally left together. And we were like that was my wife. Anybody that knows me knows I got plenty of past. I mean, I've partied with the best of them had a good old time. But, you know it's funny how people just want to go at it attack and haters going to meet anybody still watching this, or y'all still here for forty five minutes in we can do a couple more. And then we got. We'll call it a wrap. Yeah. Is it my turn? Yes, sir. Juba started up in stand started in stand up my buddy William Lee Martin, great comedian, good friend of mine. He was he was cowboy Bill Martin, and now he's doing comedy under William Lee. Martin back in two thousand fifteen he says you need to take this what you're doing and put it on stage. And I said, well, not a comedian still really think of myself as a comic. And I said, he's just try it see people, and they did, and he and I did Forty-five shows together in two thousand sixteen kings, a cow town. Too many people came to that. And we sold out about forty five shows around Oklahoma, Texas and Little Rock and, and so I just kept on doing it enjoyed it as long as we'll do it as long as people show up. Do you have a favorite live show? Experience. Oh boy. Howdy. I, I got that blew away. Over the years, I still remember, like my like when I saw Randy Travis, and Merle haggard together. You know, when I was a kid that was nice and as little sentimental, things like that. Because now Randy can't saying and Merle's gone. And I look back on things like that. But anyway, but you it's. I think it's a best live show of yours. Yeah. That's what I was wondering about Merle. Merle. Yes. But I think it's like have you had a best live show experience. Some them. We're just fun ones was when we did the home show here back in December. It was a big show, but, but like it could have been better like it was a long show. A lot of people there, and I felt like I could've done better. But you do that, you know your front, I, I had a blast this past weekend, it, my hometown against Georgia. But no man, we've had, we've had fun like oh gosh. Where we recently, we weren't Salina Kansas, that crowd was lit dude. Those people were on fire having a good time. I mean because you go out and some people just really ready to have fun. Yeah. And you can do wrong. Right. You know what I mean? You never get the same crowd twice. But it is so fun when you get alive crying, and I hear comics all the time is that you shouldn't let the audience dictate the show understand what you're saying. But like last week in. Where were we in Steve Georgia yet, now we were in Fort Myers, Florida, Fort Myers, Florida? And I just sat on the I just I was tired. So I just had a good time with everybody, and they had this row of seats beautiful auditorium, set, like, I don't know, thirteen hundred people, but they had these roses seats right at the stage. And so I just pulled up the monitor on stage. I sat and talked to this couple for a little while and just had a blast finding out all the things they didn't know about each other for ten years. It was funny. Dude, had a good time with them. But, but everybody else enjoyed it. I think so. Anyway, I said, a bad word on stage and I apologize. I know that it's not a church service shows. It's not it's not a bad. Show. There's not vulgar language too much. Every random blue moon. All right. One more question. Okay. Two more thrown his in a trash. Well, mind. Okay you pick. There's one is do you ever get tired of being on the road or will J B any upcoming episodes of the podcast? She will work hard, Jay's got a lot going on. She's got her own career. Does her own thing, obviously. Yes, you will. But skinny heart she's working hard. Yeah. She's been killing it. She'd been on this four week challenge with. She goes to my buddy Levi member has this thing over in the Bertelson area, Burleson Texas area called in intensity training systems at yes. And so he puts together this group workout thing, this really phenomenal. And I used to do it years ago. And obviously I don't do it anymore at this specimen been going over there. And, and I'm like I don't even know you anymore. She's so disciplined, and so, like, eating all the right things, and this girl, she's getting beach, ready. She was never big to begin with now. She's always been a little tiny person. But yeah, everybody loves and we get in. So we're going to have some episodes where I'm gonna kick all y'all out, and we're just to have a couple of me and Jade, because I think people need that I think they need some Jade, I was gonna say that probably is one of your favorite podcasts. I think that one was really powerful that jailed couple of more just sat around the table and just talked and, and when it came the Jj oh, that we did it at here. Yeah. That was a lot of fun. I think that was really powerful people love that Jade likes to make mad though she likes to make a mad. And and yes, I do get tired of the actual physicality of travel. But let me tell you that getting on stage is so worth it. Yes, is so much fun to get out there and hang with people that we're willing to go there and do it some more, and let me tell you where we're at home for a couple of weeks now. And we'll be chomping at the bits ready to go. Stephen have his suitcase pack, four days before we leave very other packed up be. You'll be sitting by the curb weight, I'm gonna come pick him up and go to the airport. Yeah. Anyway. So, hey, thanks for hanging out with us. This is fun. It's weird. I don't like having like, yes, we're talking about yourself. Makes me uncomfortable. Party foul. Steve hot news, Natalie puppet master, Mark candy, Queen EDO paeans, I'm gonna start starting over here. So that you'll be I. I'm losing voice, again, can hear it starting to feel sultry. Hello, everyone out there and cyberworld. You don't know me, but I know you I see you. I'm watching you right now through the lens of Facebook YouTube, and apple podcasts may, God bless you until next time. Bye.

Ep 48 | What Would Aliens Say About Donald Trump?

"My goodness goodness. It's another episode of the Chad this show. We're hanging out here in studio. Twenty two silent. Herbert looking over my shoulder there. He is the deer the deer that has nothing to say. But when day day he is going to speak have very special guest in house today. Mr. Andrew heat and the host of blaze TV's something's off Hello, injure Heaton. It's. I'm glad to be here. I know we got to be like in your garage. Fireman. This is laid back the aura of Stevie Ray Vaughan's resonates in the room because apparently he recorded here in no one can tell me, otherwise, I don't care if it's true or not. But I will tell you who legendary has graced us with his presence. And that is party fell. Steve sitting there in the peanut galley gallery sitting over there. My lovely wife. Jade hot news Natalie is sitting right over there with their feet exposed. And that's disgusting. Hates that. I know and showing ankle at everything Mary, you're so non-purified Hannibal. You really are. I now need you. Get more Elizabeth une. I do have. That's my one tattoo, and of course, puppet master Markus sitting over there in the chair in once again, we're missing candidacy the Queen of the of Europeans. It is good to have you over my friend. I like I'm just gonna go ahead and say, you're my favorite person on the entire network. You are. Wow. I know you sit bridge a resonant leftist progressive definitely everyone resident progressive I have never come to that conclusion. I've never I like it because you're a free thinker. Thanks. I don't feel fit in one of those boxes. Very well. It gets me in trouble casually. What is it that you call it the orphanage the political orphanage yet because that's kind of my my main thing is the last few years. I I started out working for congress. I did work for Democrats when I was in congress for blue dogs for the conservative Democrats when they were still around, and then I got into libertarianism, and I wound up working as writer and FOX business for awhile. And then I worked for reason. And and now I still like, I'm I am very skeptical of regulation and government, and that kind of thing, but the the main thing that just your Tate's me today is this like super red team versus blue team thinking. Yeah. And you know, there's there's a good team and everybody on the team is evil and trying to everything down lane. I I've been to some fun cocktail parties. Democrats. I've been some good barbecues Republicans. There's a lot of good people all over the board. And so that's that's what I start doing that in a lot of the people like zero on the other team. Right. And I guess I I guess I'm the other team. Then whatever that is the problem that I have is every. Wants to label everybody, and that's the thing if you can label somebody that you can put them in a box put the box on a shelf, and you don't have to deal with them. Because now Andrew heathens name comes up and says, yeah, but he's a an defined by the label. I don't like that. The other thing is everybody has anybody in America has their own interpretation and their own version of patriotism, you cut them. They bleed their type of red white and blue sometimes it's a little bit lighter blue, maybe it's a little more purple, but whatever they have their own sometimes it's rainbow colors, but the people blade bleed their own version in and that's the thing. I love literally everybody until I don't love them because of the same. I feel like if I don't like you. I'm basically a labrador retriever and cowboy boots. So I if I don't like you something either I will point it out. I don't like it. But it's really nothing to do with you. It's I didn't eat lunch today or alternately like you must have done some because I like most people too. I'm in that kind of will Rogers mold as well. Exactly. And so I mean, let's look at let's just take a macro view of my life. I have assist. Gendered male identifying man who is the director of this show in Mark finally quaffed. He likes women as far as I know. I can't talk about his Orleans experience when balls for flying in his face that was little league. But I, and I have I have my Jamaican slash Chinese co-producer shown, we call him black. I have my my Guatemalan. I'm not sure if that's where he's from other co producer, Jason Hernandez. We've got my gay agent Willie Rodriguez who also Cubano and claims to be a Republican to weird mix and my Jewish manager out in Beverly Hills. Arthur speed that you are the most diverse person highly diverse for dude that wears a cowboy hat. Yeah. Yeah. I love them. All I just love everybody. If I dislike you, you did something to be disliked saying, I think that's fine. I think another big thing that that that I'm trying to push in my work is just this basic premise that Gooden intelligent people can disagree on matters of substance. You can you can you can. Have lots of people in your life that you don't have to agree with them. You talk to and be like, hey, the thing you did. Did you do because you're a bigot? Oh, you didn't. Okay. Well, okay. Let's talk about that. If they were like, yeah. Just hate black people. I'd be like, well, I'm not. That's terrible. Do no just I thought it was a bad idea. Okay. Exactly. So so I say this to you often, and it's it's not only a claim to fame. But it's a it's a it's a huge compliment my wife sitting over here. She got introduced you on the news and white matters. And we had done an episode together something and she said I'd like him a lot. And I said what about him? She goes. He's not. I'm gonna put that on my dating profile chatting freighters wife of not an ad. Not a lot. I hold a lot of ways. Exactly, deeply flattered. Well. And so and so because Jade Jade's never been a person whose background I in deers her to any real political leanings. She's not she she sees something. She's a commonsense gal. And so she sees it. She's like, yeah. Like this. And I was just saying way I was like heat, and because he thinks any smart and in and you're younger than a little bit younger than you. Look not told significantly. Hope I'm significantly younger than because I I looked like ABRAHAM LINCOLN impersonator dressed show host. I'm gonna shave pretty soon. It gets like eighty degrees. As I'm gonna fail now. Morrogh? Yeah. Probably shape tomorrow. Yeah. So what I need you to do if you're gonna shave the beard, first of all, it's a nice beer. Thank you leave the stash and get you a Matt Kibi curl get the hippie of the he looks like czar, nNcholas the second. He he has the slightly Prussian warlord. Yeah. Moustache? I I think if you're a white guy you wanna grow moustache, you have to either have you have to jowls. That's it. You really have to be a cop. You really maybe a fireman. I look like a nineteenth century French doer or like a very questionable wrestling coach. And so I don't think I could pull off the bus. Just look like the dad on family ties stick Steve Texan Keaton. Yes, Steve your heat. Yeah. It's it's that end we probably have some kind of ancestoral alliance with the dishes had that conversation with a picture of them. I think like a week from that. He's got worse car. Hey, everybody. How was your day at school? Here's a lunch pail. Like, I'm so close to being that guy. I'm like have had that conversation about him looking like, Alex peak Eaton's dad, and that that's funny. That's funny chat. I like you too. I enjoy I enjoy your very nice guy. You're very funny guy. And and you have a way of making everybody feeling -cluded in comfortable. I've never been around you where everyone in the room was not a part of whatever we were doing. And it's a really nice quality that you have I feel like you're you're like back in high school. You're the cool kid that's like grabbing the dorks and bringing them along. And I'm in the door. No that actually talk. I it's funny that you say that because I still to this day have the guys who were considered the quote doors in highschool. They reach out to me. And they'll still say man, we appreciate that. You were an athlete and a jock. And you know, you chose to hang out with us during cleared. It will exactly because I had enough forethought to realize these kids, we're going to be changed investment strategies, you nice to the debate kid, exactly. These little doogie howser. Nice tennis racket kid. It's so, yeah, they, you know, what that stereotypes exist for a reason. And I will tell you. I do the news is breaking today. It's just things are going crazy. I don't wanna talk about the news. I wanna talk about us. This is this is we're more important than they should do a show called this is us. Yes. Yes. I think it's been done. Dammit. Where do I want on the news, though, the the Muller probe ties it has an earlier this week? I I never covered that on my show. Yeah. Because I was just I kind of bored with it demands with you. And I thought it was probably gonna mostly be smoke, man. I one hundred percent was correct. You're a hundred percent. I only people most thinking people were correct mentioned nNcholas the second earlier. I wanna go there. Good Tony round. Which is actually the Bolshevik revolution the Russian revolution. And the era of World War One is actually my favorite in most versed piece of history. I I really enjoy that time frame because I think it was then that okay? So first of all the optimism after the civil war. The optimism. In the world, especially in America was very humanist. In thought they were as they would say in every day in every way, I'm getting better. And they would encourage people to look in the mirror and twenty times say that to yourself and so people thought. Long Robin's period really was in. So people thought that that one men were inherently good, and they thought that people were involve ING and becoming a more humanitarian and humanist state in an essence man was God in that respect. And then the stories in the songs and the poems of men going off to war in World War One. They were very optimistic and enthusiastic about going to war. Ten million deaths of men in France alone later over the four years of war one. We realized the world is is quite an evil place. Altima tely the rise of Adolf Hitler in almost what is your favorite period. I mean, do you have you ever looked into that thing and just looked at the human condition because I feel that history is being forgotten. I so I I really enjoy the enlightenment. That's that's the thing. I've been really jumping into the last few years because I think that for most of human history. I think the natural the state of man that the thing that we on some instinctive level want is we want to have an authority figure, and we want to have social betters, which is an thing that when you look like, I'm from Oklahoma. You're from Georgia. I think but if I say the Queen you don't go Jimmy Beatrice of normal. We we've got this desire to to get them. And then we have this desire to have like a like a an angry dad or a good dad, or whatever and the Enlightenment's the first time in human history. Where people went maybe we just don't need like bettors to tell us what we're doing. Maybe can do your thing. And I'll do my thing. And like actually it's going to work out pretty well. And I'm kind of freaked out now because I feel like we're going the other way where like like our friends over in Europe with European Union. They've gone feudalism. Turbo idea. We agree. Yeah. But but the basic idea of lords is awesome. It's just that. We're gonna put in like Ivy league sweater vest people. Instead of you know, blue bloods. No, no. That was no I was against the I was against the structure of it. So I like the light I'll say with World War One though. I I've been listening to Dan carlin's podcast. I don't know if you listen to hardcore history, but I had no idea how lake crazy violent all that stuff was because you World War the moment, the snappy uniforms, the the body of evil, we're we're one they're putting gas masks on horses and things they were in. It was it was, you know, World War. One was really a demonstration. Man's inhumanity to man, which is what human history is made up of its goes from one epoch to another in where people are just really being cruel to each other and World War. One was was an ultimate demonstration of that. Because now we have the advent of things like air power, and we have cameras where which can reveal a lot of these things. I don't know if you've seen Peter Jackson's documentary where he took actual footage from World War One actual I've seen previews, and I wanna why colorized it, and then he found people because it was silent film. So he found people who could lip read to interpret what these soldiers were saying. But then, you know, being a New Zealander were one buff. He brought in people from these different villages in these different areas. Who had the same accents as where these soldiers would have been from to dub the words. So it's like, you're watching them talk in their own accents tents. Yeah. It's incredible. So Peter, Jackson course Lord of the rings fame. You know, incredible moviemaker he has this museum world one museum their New Zealand, and he'd collected all these artifacts. Among. Was these films? He did. This thing says an interesting interesting little piece, I would love to watch that. I think that'd be great like World War One. The like I said they're putting gas masks on horses and things I think that would have been really freaky time in the previously. You got your job loan offer, something you just died like we're one we have all these things happening, and like battles that are like, you know, forty thousand people dying in an hour and the battle goes on for like, months, and months and months that was a a horrific thing. And then I think like this this is where the nerd me comes out where I'm like, God, the the amount of where it is Andrew where it'd be further happened. Sokaiya question if you could time travel for a week just as a tourist you can't change anything. You can hang out where would you go? Where would you hang out? Those are good question. It wouldn't be the twentieth century bloody been there I've been there. I don't want to go back to that. That was a bloody mess. But you know, I think that I think going back to the age of the renaissance, you know, the damenich family, and these these folks I would love to go back in. I think he would be great at all like a medieval of exactly I think I would go back to the renaissance and see these things that because the beauty of it is you could still see these things, you know, you can go to Rome and go to Florence. You can go to these places you see these things but to go back and see how these oh God, what's a good term form not power mongers? But just these influencers of of government, and society, and culture, and art and influence changed history. And so many big waves because you mentioned the alight and the renaissance was the same way. I mean, there's this thing where all of a sudden human history just steps up. Sticks his head out of the sand. And goes, hey, we're here. This is going to be a revolutionary change for all of human history in terms of influence, and that's one of those things, you know, that or I would say the reformation, but they probably burn me at the stake. Killed his way. So when I lived in Edinburgh, they they had a really good kind of national pastime killing witches in Scotland. And if you go to the castle esplanade, there's this placard that says over here, the burned lots of which is, but in retrospect, a lot of them were good witches, and we apologize for killing him. Tawny about none of which is it was for like nineteen ninety. They were still like to tall. Yeah. Killing the wrong. I'd go back. I would be curious to get into the mindset because I you brought up cameras a minute ago. I do think like we are kind of for good and for ill living in this panopticon moment where I don't think we quite realize how different would have been one hundred fifty years ago, where if you were at a bar or a restaurant, and you just shouted something. It would never affect anything. You could just be a complete dick and nothing. That's that was your wife's very kind of camera. Never you never. You didn't go to the pub with Enver the grid down. I'm like hidden, rakes and stuff. The thing that freaks me out is do you have like a like an Amazon Alexa or a series anything like that? I've got them. All I'm a nice guy. And I watch these these period films where like some British Lord is. How dare you bring pulse at this hour you stupid throw something, but never say that. And then I'll get home be like, Alexa, play electric light orchestra. No, not that one. You stupid robot? Ladder. And I'm currently I'm evil person. When I don't have any pushback on me. Play. Every day in my apartment by fling the door open. It's quite a yellow bitch. That is exactly. Would j what were you going to say? Oh, remember, if you could travel back in time, where would you go where would you go? What would you do just to be an observer, not change it? But just being go back to you know, when Jesus be born. Okay. So they can come back and be like told you. For the win. Luther is all about it. Well, I don't wanna go down that trail because I could be a fun conversation to get interesting. I give you my best part question. Come this to you? If you could shoot out a different liquid from every finger on your hand, you got five liquid. You can shoot out you're crazy heat. And this is an something's off. Like, I can't believe you're not married. Such random hot girl in the corner. Jay. Risky. Well, I can tell you what would shoot out of this thing. Have you choose tell you why this question. Yeah. Good question because I feel like so much of the time we go on auto pilot when you meet people because if you like most people that are bad at remembering names, it's like, hey, what's your name? Bob. I don't care moving on with my life. Label box auto pyrite thing. I don't really like asking people what they do for a living anymore because they're excited. I'm excited. I like when people are stoked about him. But if they're like, I'm a mid level accountant. I don't care. Let's move. So I'm like, okay. We think about ghosts. Let's talk about ghosts money. Raise the five fingers thing people, they get this bug. I look, and then if they if they'll join me onto might when our we have a real conversation. I'm going to see how your brain works. Let's see. Okay. So whiskey has come right thumb. You suck a specific vintage. I mean, you know, with whiskey Brown liquid, you know, right now index finger because that's your okay nice. That's good talking to the microphone say this. You're going to have a really good night out of the Mark. Steve getting getting wasted and Milton faces. Can think about what comes out of that one? Out assuming sperm. The asks on his arguments mixed up redefining biology. We don't have to have sex to have babies I gotta middle finger. There. It is somebody helped me, I don't know. After that. I'm gonna so cotton. I feel a gasoline quite help. That'd be guessing. You just be standing there by your car right there by that probably healthy to have some water water's good idea. I mean me so soup. I feel like Mesa soup. Your finger five water, whiskey and be so soup. I can live anywhere in the world. And I'm perfectly fine. You could drop me off at a desert, and I'm okay. My stupid brain goes to vodka tequila. Rum beer. A mobile hatted bar at that. Exactly. Great call me Alexander zioka taste that would that. Would that would be really good superheroes? The walking liquor camp. We just do a halt. We could do a whole Long Island sweet tea right here. Just put all my fingers in the glass and fill it up. All we need is a coke. I love it. That's a great party question Heaton, leave it to heat and come up with stuff this. Oh what what time period? Would you? Go back to party foul on a pretty good day yesterday. You don't remember it? I wish you could go back yesterday and just observe yourself. How you were all captured on film. Pretty good. Wait Jade, how about you. If I was just observing because I know it's been rough for females for a long time, which I think it's funny that females complain so much now when we've come quite a fire I wanna repeal suffrage. I really. I have if I was just there to see I would like the medieval era. Yeah. That's always been very winch. Yeah. I think that's a very romantic era. Oh, Jesus cry. They asked was what I how I felt I wanted to romantic alright he'll back to Bill Clinton's office when Monica visited back to. SE erotic thing. Clinton, and Monica Lewinsky, that's where you're gonna go. You just want to see if it really happened. Oh, it really. Dress me see what did I t's? Okay. So we have this saying around here. Steve gets his news from memes Steve gets all of his news for memes. So we're going to we're going to we're going to get a t shirt. Herbert would probably go back to when he had a body. That's a good deal though. History is fascinating. The I enjoy it. It disturbs me though that we have so much revisionist the winners. Get to tell the story first of all the winters get to tell the story. And how that's interpreted from the winners standpoint and viewpoint. You're not gonna remember my father who was stationed in Germany back in the sixties, mid sixties. Any army? He was the core of engineers. And was fortunate enough not have to go to Vietnam. But he can remember going in German homes, and they still had pictures of that off Hitler, really because in their mind. He was a great leader. Wow. Okay. So sixties because the sixties this is enough to win years after you know, he committed suicide. So so, yeah, it's it's it's weird. How people interpret? Yeah. Their history, it's like my. So I went to college in history. And it was also it was it was interesting because it gives you these sort of mental frameworks to realize that people think about things differently like like doing history, if you take the election between Grover Cleveland and McKinley. I'm not sure let's say those two guys ran against each other. I don't remember the for whatever reason there's kind of like range of people with really good facial nineteen hundred eighteen eighty to nineteen hundred I don't actually know anybody. And like if you're if you're a Marxist, then you would look back and go, well, then I'm gonna look for economic. Economic signifies. I'm going to look back and go, you know, what were the what was the average income in the United States that time that kind of thing or you might look and go, well, I'm where religious oriented. So I wanna look and see where there people that was a surprise versus Catholic thing was the secular versus Christian thing were maybe I'm I think it's ideological and it's more. We were they, you know, classical liberal or were they were they progressive, and you can you can begin to see these filters that people put on things, and I find that. That's a very helpful skill set to have particularly when you get into a Vincent in day where you can go. Okay. 'cause I'm when I look at the news, I might be approaching it from very different lens in somebody else's and helps them figure out what they're talking about. When I realized that they've got this very specific mindset that they're bringing to it. Mckinley got shot nineteen. Foot story with McKinley. And this is probably made up, but I like I've been tour guide and three cities. I was a got gotten Edinburgh to guy in Washington DC and for one day in New York, and in DC the story that I've talked about with McKinley was McKinley got shot. And I believe he got shot by a disgruntled guy that hadn't he wanted. He wanted to become postmaster Jasim postmaster McKinley is shot. And and it's not it's probably not gonna kill him. He's probably okay. Like, he's these tough guys back, then these are all like, you know, like civil war vets. And they they bring him to the hospital and they call the smartest. Scientists of the day. Who is who's the guy that invented the lightbulb Edison, Edison? Thank you. So they bring it out supposedly there. Yeah. You know, the the one we know right here the bringing Thomas Edison, because he invented the very first medal sector, and so they brought an Edison to to bring his medal and locate the bullet in the most incredibly specific and targeted way, you could do ten logically. So he brings his. Thing in like, you know, there it is. They dig it out. And they're like good job. Everybody is like hold on. Let's do another pass in case. The the lead fractured. So another pass. And yet there's so us. Okay. There's still more lead in there guys keep going and they keep doing export torture. They can't find anything. They another pass being keep doing sports or surgery this point. They're all like, you know, risk deepen the president's guts looking for this thing. And he's I'm sorry it somewhere in there. You gotta find they keep doing this. And then. After forty minutes of the back of the room goes, excuse me. Mr. Edison, the fact that the president's on a metal cot with the issue here today, just president McKinley with his technology. Yep. So Edison Edison killed McKinley. But but that was to your point. I mean, it's like everything is kinda tainted and filtered the whole thing. And it's it's a crazy thing. It's in. That's. By the way, on that point before we go any further because we've said this in a recent episode Millan Millard Fillmore had to have the most integrity of any president. Ever twice. Everybody's favorite president. Everybody loves Miller Fillmore Millard Fillmore in the middle of the podcast and every body in the room was like who he was fifty. This pecker head googled it. Nobody else knew that he might. He might have been our first gay president Millard Fillmore is it became an I can't you can't be cancel one that like a gentleman. With him. Yeah. So, but no, I I love I love this thing. And here's what I want to get into. Here's why was Millard Fillmore the most hitting. I just love say names that people are like, no, I do that is he's president United States. You should have a contest where you make up one factor week at see who can nail to good idea. That's why I keep you around yet in this people. If you're not watching and listening to something off the enter you gotta be doing this thing. I'm telling you, you will learn you'll laugh and you'll learn and that's what pre shit about you. Here's the thing. I say all the time the phrase, you said it, and I love it the two hundred years from now aliens are going to invade earth. And they're going to dig up. Artifacts are going to Twitter records isn't going to say, oh, look they had a washed up gameshow host and they made him their king. I love that. Thank you. That is the best analogy of Donald Trump. I think that's about right? I think like I to a weird extent. I think about what a future civilization will think of it. Because like I said I was history. Major right. Keep talking glasses or thank you. So the the. If you're if you're a historian almost all of human history, everything we know about it is from one of three things it's from crap people left behind by accident like pottery shards, it's from propaganda, right? Like arc the Gulf war from the perspective of Saddam Hussein. That's most recorded history. Right. And then the third one is letters mostly from Benjamin Franklin, but letters and missives that we have we have found, right? So I look at Twitter, and I'm like, oh my God. In the thousand years now, they're going to understand our civilization based on all the asinine crap. We'd head on Twitter. So they're gonna wake up and go the twenty first century. People hated Mondays. But they love memes of cats playing piano that it'd be everything you've done in your life. They get all the wonderful your wedding all that stuff. There. I'm day was a fun day. Thank goodness. It's Friday cash tag week. That's going to be the most asinine not. But we're going to be percent as the most Jerasia history. And then if you were Elliot's sifted through all the stuff, if you're going through VHS tapes, you would go human life is nothing but birthday partisan going to the beach. That's all even know of. And then now it'd be like and they elect game show hosts president like, yeah. That's that's the that's the world. I have this philosophy in put it in your head and just get your take on it. So everybody news heard me say this million times throughout history. People have put their story on wall. Whether it was a cave drawing gypsy hieroglyphic, or whatever it was. Now, we're putting it on a digital wall used to be. We kept the words of posterity for posterity of the poets in the prophets in the kings in the philosophers in these folks, you know, we remember what Plato and Aristotle and Socrates said now now everybody has a voice not everybody is responsible with their. Voice. And so we're putting the stuff out there. And we're going to be interpreted by history based on the pablum that we have produced en masse social media, and that's how we're going to be interpreted throughout history. I mean, it's it's not gonna Bill through says I seen you on Facebook like that. That's that's horrible. So maybe Facebook will wind up being the Rosetta Stone. In which like, I like resented stone. Bond ex it's just horrible. It's like if aliens come down, I think there should be a lot of aliens come down immediately just destroy every single YouTube message board because I don't wanna be like, hey, come check out the Grand Canyon. And then like everybody shuts down because there's so dark stuff stuff. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You're right. Well there too late. You think about like reading a book about I'm talking to a guy about Adam Smith on Thursday PG works going to be on. And I really love it. Yeah. Yeah. He's a funny. Funny, man, he's coming on to talk about and, but but I was going through when when he wrote the wealth of nations like the the amount of people that could purchase books was like one percent of the population. So if you're at that time, if you were writing your writing for this, very specific set, and clearly, it's awesome. That like now, we're all literate and could talk like, I'm, you know, my family was living in a dugout three generations ago and. In. But at the same time Loma. Yeah. Oklahoma get now, we got there. It was there wasn't anyone even trees we had to dig a hole on the hill in limited. But. The way you are the smartest human that has ever come out of Oklahoma. Thank you very much. We'll take that. I don't know that it's necessarily a compliment, but you are head and shoulders above the general populace. I I am the Frazier crane of Oklahoma. Doc except that mantle I'm gonna take. Okay. Yeah. I lost my point. I know you're talking about more awesome heat analogies. But nobody it has like the whole kind of shift that you're losing to think we've gone from quality to quantity. Where do you wanna make a splash? You wanna get the biggest outreach and make the talk to the most people you can as opposed to honing tweeting every hour. I'm relevant. Yeah. And that's why I'm not huge on Twitter because I try to say things that are meaningful and you'll need to follow him at mighty Heaton on Twitter today. So Backley, I'm the same way. So you have very thoughtful tweaks. You and I are the same. But where you're you're making fun content. You're making regular you go to promote it. Yeah. But at the same time, like you're a thoughtful person, I think you're also a focused person. Yeah. Select like, I don't it bothers me when I hang out with my friends that are in their twenties. I'm thirty five my friends that are in their twenties are constantly tweeting or they're on Facebook. Whatever in it kind of weirds me out because I don't want to if I'm spending time with somebody. I just want to spend time with them. I don't wanna be out in either. And and it it's that kind of that that off balance being present. And being you know, in that moment. Exactly. Yeah. So I had dinner together, you know. Don't wanna put neither one of us ever took our phone. We talked the whole time. Exactly enjoy being with that person. It's weird to me that people. There you're with someone that you're not with them. And then all of a sudden, you know, you're texting somebody else we're talking to somebody else. But then if I'm with that person that I was texting I'm gonna be texting you. It's weird phenomenon. Like, we're never satisfied in the moment with the human beings that were with anyway, I wanna talk about you for sick. Oh, that's my favorite subject. Let's get you were getting all zinn focused. Let's talk about the career path. How did you and you alluded some places you've worked and you've done a lot of different thing. I know you have to Oklahoma City zoo. We I that's that's good, folks. The dolphin show. They kept catching strep throat. Sorry about that. They wouldn't be by never touched dolphin. That was just say to enter Heaton is not only a comedian he legitimate. He's a comedian stand up comedian. But he's also master of improv and a student of that we'll get into that the second. But let's walk me through the process of of what brought you here today. I think I'll be zoo. Yeah. No. So I okay. So I graduated college. And I I went to a I went abroad for a year because I wanted to live in another country, but I didn't wanna have to learn a new language. So I went to Scotland that seemed like the easy easy way to do it. And then I lived in. I lived in LA for about six months live in a tool shed behind my best friend's house because I I wanted to get into radio when a great friend. He couldn't give you the gal. You if you're twenty three you're moving to L A live in a tool shed. It is great. I it was like living in a big Easter egg. And it was really nice. I did that. But I wanted to get into radio with time. But like the, but it was it was eight and so the recession it just hit and an NPR purged everybody. And so I I wound up being background actor like like an extra in film for and I didn't really luckily, so I I moved to DC and I worked for congress for a little while. And then I got a scholarship to go back to Edinburgh where I lived to get a degree in international, politics and through this process. I'm doing stand up at night. And I kept doing it. When I was in Scotland, actually, I think the the highlight of my comedy career was I got asked to be a regular comedian thank called Saturn Edinburgh. Saturnalia cabaret. So you're doing comedy in Scotland. Yeah. Yeah. I was doing county. Scotland I was the comedian at this this Merican accent. Yeah. Well, it it. I'm sure it would have curb slightly because at once you're if I think they're new one. Yeah. Drop your ours come out. But but but but I was doing that. I I went on between a lady that took her clothes off in a guy that eight light bulbs. And I think that was like the best guy. Yeah. Yeah. So I did that for and then and then I went back to DC. And I thought I was going to get like a suit and tie job like is a bureaucrat, and and then eventually I was going to try and get New York and do comedy. And and then I was there for like six months year. Now, why am I doing? I don't want to be a bureaucrat. I'd rather be funny. So I up and moved to New York and was doing comedy up there and a few people over at FOX business found out that I was a stand up comedian. But also, I like free markets, and I like Bilton Friedman, and there's not a there's not a huge pronounced intersection. That's not a big convergence circle. So they went sina stuff about congress. But also you like capitalism, and I was like, yeah, Andrew funny. And I was like I am one of the three. And so they hired me and I worked on that odor. I worked on a couple of shows doing that. And then in worked for reason for a bit which is a wonderful, libertarian magazine and publication at a New York, and then I out shooting DC in then then about six months ago. I just I finally kind of I'm is a Senate from. Oklahoma originally, I just kind of got worn out on New York overall. I was tired of direct contact being prelude to murder in. So decided it's about time for me to head home. So my walks in the park and then rape. Yeah. No, I say hide it like I'd leave the apartment of the morning and go like, oh, good morning and my neighbor go, I don't wanna buy drugs. I don't belong here anymore. I never belonged here. So I moved in. And then I got I got scooped up by the blaze, and I went, okay. That sounds like a fun game that happened. I mean, what was the process there? I think they found some of the stuff of noon for reason because they've been making a lot of funny. I I did I hosted a show called mostly weekly which was kind of like a Craigslist last week tonight for libertarians do this so much people really need to listen to what you just said. There's a lot see that's comedy to make that really closely analogy like a Craigslist. That's awesome. Yeah. A poorer poor late night show, but from a decidedly free market perspective. And so I think the blaze watch that if you people have been fans today hit me up, and then brought me on a now, I'm doing this and colleagues with you love it. Oh, thank you very much. I appreciate that take my wife room. He doesn't gallery. Hey, the difference between you and my wife. She is a. During the headlights. You've done a bunch of comedy all over the place because every time I talked to you just got back from a gig somewhere. You've done it all over the states. Do you find that in have have you done it internationally either way the questions same? Do you find that humor changes anywhere? Do you find you have to change your game? When you're the prizes. Surprisingly, you know, the thing about international stuff is, you know, obviously, we're not talking about Nigeria here. We're talking about the UK. Although I one hundred percent go to Nigeria if they if they flee down there a grad time, it's not I've been there time to trust me. It is on the do not fly list is humor is hard to translate. When it's your culture, it's that much harder to try to do it in a culture that that's totally different beers. I find that my humor translates well in Australia. Yeah. It translates well in the UK in in Austria like like they're too is basically Georgia. It is. I mean, like really light like demographic amazement found this had like four months ago, like everyone industry area that came over in the seventeen whenever they as prisoners. They had Georgia was a prisoner caller to like the British for sending over there. They're felons to the to the colony of Georgia. And at some point the when my then making lot of noise. I don't think we should send them anymore felons. Let's do any islands in the Pacific. It's like a straight basically, they're Cowboys from the British. And they're all and there's a lot of Australia's who are watching this podcast. Listen this podcast in my heart goes out to you. Because I know you hate your progressive government. And it's gone. It's just been crazy for twenty five years. It really hasn't in heart goes out to the tragedy and Zeeland, and I'm also sorry that now that you're having give up they lost a prime minister one time herald Holt, they don't talk about this. But they literally just lost him. Not swimming. If it came back like imagine of Gerald Ford with swimming during the Cold War and just never came back. That would be the biggest frigging conspiracy theory all of history. Swimming. He didn't come back. We go to new palm minister and. Hey. Talk about that. That's amazing. My mind flash is back to the movie. What was it nineteen forty one ninety forty two the John Belushi movie where the girl goes out swimming? And all of a sudden Japanese subculture. The Russians went like grabbed and put them in their subway. Face in Moscow, and they're gonna thaw out, and they kidnap Hollis Hollywood. And they're like, where's Hollywood? Hollis would. Who would any of box of cracker, Jack and the gift the little prizes a compass? And that all he grabs. Go watch the frigging movie. It's funny. How would anyway? That's what happened to the bridge. Newseum? Yeah. Yeah. Have a surfing friend in New Zealand. Yeah. Back to your point. And he says every year every surfing season, we lose at least one person to a great white shark. If you if you serve for sharks on the north coast. He said, we there's at least one person that goes away. Surfing from great white, shark, which would tell me I don't want to surf in New Zealand. I don't. So there's a good chance the prime minister Wade out. I think very like I went to stray for about a month and everything's trying to kill you everything. Everything's trying to hold place exists whole place like like if like California exist to take your money trail, you have you have duck beavers about that from an adult Bill. It's a duck beaver dot created a pervert beaver put on this island at the far into the supposed to live there. It's supposed to be in Australia. Give you a wide shot under your Charrette. Look look back over there. Studio. Twenty two we got heads laying around here. Listen, there's Holt. He made it there. He is. There's the prime minister we've got his head. If you're not watching the Jeb their show, you frigging missing out. We had an Oklahoma. We lose like a hand every year in the in the noodling festival in the y'all know what who Ling is. Yeah. Okay. Because you're you all for proper America. Let's do it. But you said. Yeah. So if he'll right after that guy, if he if you're listening to a home, you don't know, what noodling is noodling is when you go into a lake and you put your hand down the biggest hole, you can find an you hope something bites your hope, it's GATT as you pull it out, and it usually fish, but sometimes it's a beaver and beavers bite your hand off. And somebody lose a finger every two three years somebody will die and the whole thing. Just like a Cormack McCarthy novel set in Ireland, Texas, it's an amazing amazing thing players takes population. One nine one when nineteen. My good friends Hannah. And her dad Jeff baron earned south Alabama. And that's kind of their claim to fame is their outdoor people. But they they noodle. I don't like being in the water. I don't care what watery is going to get in the swimming pool. I will be on the water or by the water. I don't wanna be in the water, especially the ocean, seafood. Really? But I don't wanna be in the water. Now, the last time you and I had sushi together. I got sick. Angry AM poisoned you. Sure. Pounds over twenty four hours. I don't want to kill him. But I just wanna test. That was great. Nice. Thanks, Dave galley, this why keep this guy around. No. But they get in the murkiest water and stick their hands and muddy holes and hope to pull a fish out. That's the dumbest thing you could do in murky waters. Now some. Some. Hand and our anyway talking about people disappear in. We were in Kabo this last summer in Jade had an accident. We won't get into with the serve because I tell you don't get in the water there because it's it's the undertow is so bad the tiger so bad in most of the beaches in combo, but they had a couple who had came out to renew. Their vows. They were in their sixties came out to renew. Their wasn't lapses. Exactly. You got it. You we do. They're not they're not they're not for straw till death. Do. Count. We do couples called an Oscar base. We you've heard of couples massages tissue. We we've been overlook each other in the. You know, we were in new are very of it. These folks are in their sixties and went out to the water to just kind of look over the ocean and guess wept away away hit them. They never saw him. Again. They renewed their vows and that went into eternity together. Okay. Yeah. So I don't I don't do Meriden rainstorm, folks. Do it in Kansas tied not with your tone that you can't untie with your teeth. That's the deal. Okay. Make it forever. But no, I eat. So you wound up here at the blade how you adjusted to live in doubt you in Dallas. I'm in the Bishop arts district Dallas, which would be I would be. I agree. Yeah. But it's like have you seen this show the good place Danson? It's like that. If it were in Texas dance is one of the nice nicest. Nice nice guy. I like Dallas. I like the whole thing's been really good. I mean, the the the my blood pressure is noticeably lower because in New York, like it's, you know, some of my best friends of New York. There's a lot of really good things going for New York getting raped in central park. I well, you know. Yeah. Those that Tuesday ribs terrible thing. I don't wanna show up. I have to the the New York. It got to me because it is so frenetic like, it's it's very the the friction of the the energy level necessary to live there. And it's also the etiquette models. Very different me being from Oklahoma. The etiquette where I'm from is that you show respect buying gauging with people. So like my faint. My the heat and family is our strongholds alva-, Oklahoma. And if you if you're driving into Alvin you don't wave at people, they're like, why aren't you waving like, what did you what are you having and the home of Blake Shelton? And then he's from that sounds eighty eight don't. Yeah. I think I'm not very modest modest syllabi. The ruin Oklahoma's all of our towns are named after the last red guy or the first white guy. So there's a very specific pattern that you can see playing out over the, but, but it's it's a very very gregarious place last. The I in in in New York, though, you give respect by giving people space. Right. And I'm never going to reconcile that. I couldn't square that that, sir. Whereas douse is lovely in that capacity. It would I could I could do a little bit friendlier in that. Like I've been to like small towns in the south where like you come in. And they're like, hey like you wanna live with us. Like there is a certain like in really over the top that I quite like, no, it's been nice. I like having a car again and me drive everywhere. I call people on the phone a lot more and more connected to my friends and family. It's been good. You're talker. I mean, when I say that I mean in a good way, cause you you're communicators. So you like the talk on the phone you actually have the over the table conversation or the telephone commerce. I get all my energies from other people say that to the older, I get like the more important. Those relationships are to me as well. We're like Nick now, it's very important. Mark thirty five. Think you're very magnetic over here. We've been talking about you. And Jay this like a panel home. My god. Thank you. This is that there's you know, and you can't put your thumb on it. But Steve has a crush. I'll take it from all three. Thank you very much the same time. Great except your tripartite. On mystery. See the back of your head. But it's not until finally lofta retract back. We went on a date with you. You would ask us like what your favorite cereal? I'll say this wouldn't be boring though. Anyway, boring. I never had. I've never thought about you know, what if I had to swap the bottom half of my body with an animal. What animal I'd pick. And you know, it'd be interesting. Yeah. I would like to see in Fort Worth. Because if your blood pressure is decreased in Dallas, we would bring a chair and have it behind you at all times in Fort Worth because we're doing to bring come over. We'll. Dinner at bluegrass over there. Because I haven't found any bluegrass. Really, I think I think this area's gone full Hilton country. Not really there's no real good bluegrass anywhere anymore. I it's I wanna I wanna bring it to Fort Worth it put up at the Hilton downtown. We'll take you to find enter Australia. I've Tom told Denton too. I have not been good just as far away from where it's at, you know, didn't kinda grownup so big that it's like every other metropolitan areas trying to figure out his traffic situation. But didn't you know? You know, you need come over. There are friend. We went to a tasting the other night for Stephan Rochelle is a good friend of ours. He's a chef. And he's opening a new place called wish bone and Flint there on the south side of Fort Worth fantastic. I still don't know what I ate. I had beef jaw beef jaw go beef young. It was it was apparently jaws very Tinder, very tasty meat. I don't know. But it was good. And so we have all these schifrin's over there. You gotta come to Fort Worth your town fully shift, can I will. And I'm told I'm told where it's a little bit more gregarious to which I do like that. It's a little more laid back. It's a big small town and it held onto its heritage albeit it has grown very cosmopolitan within its countdown to write you tend to like, particularly as part of the country tend to be cow towns and oil oil-town's that's true in Dallas oil town in. Yeah. Now Dallas is oil is where the money came from. And in Dallas is a weird place. You only about ten percent of the people who live in Dallas are actually from Dallas. Really? Wow. Yeah. Checks checks. Everybody. I'm meets somebody. They're always from somewhere. But now I grown to enjoy Dallas. I was conceived in Dallas. So my parents thing and horrible place. But I I have this.

Hey, but I don't think she's on the same in the same zone or coast, maybe as bashing I'm paradise. But. She got wind that this was going to be a to be continued episode. And was like this is the week. I'm going to peace out so rude. I can't believe it very very rude. But we have some fun things. We've store news to talk about and for those of you who miss Haley, which of course, you do. She recently appeared on. It's called were nap for those of you who don't know, Robin. Akiva, Nita podcasts. Rob has podcast on the chiller wraps, Laura. I would say, okay. Where they attempted to match me and she had to lend her love expertise because Robin Cuba. You know? They're not the love experts and Dany show experts. So definitely check that out to get your Healy fix this week. If you haven't already so funny. Yes. Exactly. So. News talk about. And you're the perfect person have on hand for some of this news here because there are some baby news. Maybe news of your own which maybe is old news. But not everybody knows right? Whatever. But yeah. Like Beckham m pregnant she was pregnant now, she's not she's not anymore. Jade's pregnant again too big story. And I guess learn be is still pregnant got married. All right. Anybody else? Be lauren. Yeah. I guess her name is Lauren base. Learn burnham's. Now, it's probably Loren L Gallison us too much. But yeah, Becca had a baby girl, and they weren't didn't know what it was until. She was just shopping. It's shocking because I've been to the the OB, and they just like accidentally have said it like seven times. Did you wanna know? Or I totally the first time they said it they were like, oh, wait, did you not want to know? And it's good thing. I did because you. Ask just like. Casually announced it to you like, oh, and you're having like khazei nowadays, there's a blood test that you take in your first trimester that will tell you definitively the sex of the baby, but like just on the results, and she just like thought, maybe the doctor had already told me, so the nurse just set it, and I was like, Nope. That's the first time. I'm learning about that. So so cavalier, and then like other appointments like another nurse will come in. And just do like an ultrasound. And she'll be like, oh, look at the little boy. And it'll be like it's a good thing. I know like jeez. So shocking to me that she was able to keep that sort of secret. Great. You know, I wonder if is a nurse. I need some excitement. And yeah. Neetu? It's like a little bit more laid back there. I think when it comes to like prenatal care. It's like much more like hippy dippy, so not to offend anybody. But right, so maybe she had fewer appointments. I don't know maybe east coast. Yeah. Maybe it's like the coast vibes like west coast. They can deal with the uncertainty of not knowing. Planner's? Yeah. So you always knew that, you know. Yeah. I didn't need to be a surprise. For me. Exciting choosing the name. I feel like is very stressful. And I don't think I would wanna like wait talk to the baby is born. I think that's what and her boyfriend are doing because they announced just planning their Instagram content. Well, and their stake hearing it, but so friendly. So. So I haven't announced a name. So I thought we could just kind of guess, some potential names or name themes. We could see Becca am going with then we'll have Haley either judge next week on which comes closest to the type of says. Actually it says. All right. So you're the guest go here. Never. I don't know actually it's really hard because I feel like she's like so young. So it's probably going to be something. Like super hip or. I don't know something really trendy and this girl, right? It's a girl. I'm so wherever you are not as buoyant at all, I'm so happy. But like we're having a boy, and I only had baby girl names picked out. I just I just knew them. So. Options with girls. I feel I totally maybe she's going to name it like something that you would also find a dog be named Tilly daisy like flower flower where all right. This is eighty I'm now looking at like, I just looked up. I typed into Google hipster baby girl. These totally dog named plummeted time. Oh my gosh. I can totally see clementine those guesses. I know that she was like she didn't want to know. And she was our Instagram looking for gender neutral. One of those. Maybe it'd be like a gender neutral name like. Sage or math. That's pretty. Well, sage was actually RS has a baby boy named sage I'm like, well, I can see him girls. Girl's name. Yeah. So I didn't know we had a we are has a kid to river. Yeah. That's all. I could see. All right. So she could name Ari. And I was like, oh, maybe it can be like, Andy. Oh like Romney. Yeah. Something like Jessica Simpson has a daughter named Maxwell could see something like that. Or Charlie Charlie. That's an knifer. Yeah. This gender neutral thing. I feel like it's probably going to be that. So all right. Any other guesses? None. Congrats to the mama. Yes. Very exciting. Choose so cute out her pregnancy. Follow. Yeah. She looked really good. I refused to let anyone take pictures of his I feel beached whale. So even though I have not gained that much because I was throwing up the first like month. So. It's not. Sound fun at all. It's calmed down. Now a little bit. And I definitely just I'm not interested in like people like touching by stomach or, you know, just like posing casually with like my hand in the thanks. Yeah. It's a strain on my style. You weren't meant to be a cargo influencer. Unfortunately, not. Could have made some money. But no. And speaking of Prego influencers sort of mentioned briefly, but just Jade Jade and Tanner are putting Jay in front of all my words. Now Janner is having the as well because I forgot what they're they're Instagram or they're like couple. Yes. Now, they are like influencers of the baby variety assure totally sort of cave the way they've sort of roped Carleen Evan into that. And then now, actually I and Jared are like already doing it. Yeah. But they're not like I mean there nightmare yet. They're still like the engaged couple. But like, they she just started using that what's that bracelet called that actually? Where you like track your fertility? And like there's only post of like Ashley being like, we're not there yet. But Jade does it. So it's like Thai. Yeah. I can tell like even use it at any point. You don't just have to trying to have just you know. It's like funny like she's wearing it. And Jared is like oh shocked face. Yeah. No. I can always already predict like a year down the road. They'll be the next June Tanner are really cute family. So I'm I feel like they're whatever they have will be just another cue little edition. Yes. So they're Amy girls named Emerson. So how do you feel about that? Yeah. How'd you feel about that as a baby name? Name isn't it? I thought so too gender neutral. I guess I guess it is. Yeah. I mean, I I mean, call her EMMY, that's like all I've ever heard. So yeah. Yeah. That's pretty cute. Yeah. So we don't know what they're having yet still early, and they just announced it so something to watch. I'm sure they'll do like a gender revealed do a gender reveal. No, I my so excited to do like the announcement and has during the point where I was like bed ridden unable to get up and unable to mood like just totally like out of it had no personality at all. And I just it was not anything that I was interested and even thinking about so it's like, you do it everyone you announce it. However, you want nuts. And then we found out the baby after he announced it the the sex after we announced it. So I wasn't really interested in like a big thing during Apollo sister was his sister was like incense. She really was like I wanted to do it. And I was like well when you have a child, so right? Exactly. And I don't think they had announced this new story about gender Revilla's on is at that point. So I mean all to do right? Look, they look really gross. But. I don't know if lasagna's maybe like top of the list of like pregnancy cravings. But now not. All right. That's we didn't even stop start with the top story of the hour, which is. We found out what happened to Kirpal Chinton. Oh my God. I was like, wait. What is the top story? Our? Yeah. Like if you was like an hour before we started recording. I was talking to Mike about like this girl has abandoned on her chin. So she must have stitches, and they're not talking about it. And I'm just curious not really, but and then I was reading a recap on e w and they they posted like an update to their recap or they're like, we know what happened because they released the deleted scene. I don't even notice like, I didn't even know the veteran deleted scene. So it was the special one or feel like they did like they cut it. And then they were like, oh people are talking about this. Let's release it and get them. Come. Viral video shares not it's a really funny. Video though, corpus funny like Laker. She actually had a personality. We have not seen anything. Yeah. So why don't you are? But what are your hell? The listeners. What happened ticker again, very dramatic in the style of turn paradise for sure. But cure it starts off by care like talking to the camera. And like, hey like I landed here in Thailand. And then Thailand like like totally got one over on me beat me up. She says she was leaning out into the ocean like on like sort of a like on rocks or whatever to take like a she says, a basic healthy of herself with the sunset and the rock source slippery, and she just like fell she tried to stop herself with her wrist or her hand and not didn't work and she fell right on her chin. And so she had to at the hospital and she got five stitches in her chin and she sprained her wrist. They show in the video. She has this like giant rap on her wrist, which I didn't see in the episode. So great first day in tile out and say, hi, the head is she? These are your wrist. They like they wrap it up at the hospital till I keep it like stable, but it's not necessarily that you need to keep it wrapped like Tahil. Okay. Which is it just feels better. I think like I mean with a wrist. I think it's different than when you sprained your leg because you're not relying or walking on it. So she probably could take the rap off. And like just keep it still guess, okay? To avoid looking like a fool more wondering how she got this phone. I must have been one of the producers phones or something to take a selfie, right? 'cause true. Although maybe she had just had a camera like she's like the really risky. It's like who doesn't see we do see sometimes like after the season airs when people show pictures of like like selfish that they've taken like on on location and stuff. So I guess maybe you're onto something that they do use it producers phone or something. Oh, maybe they get like they're a phone that doesn't. Yeah. It's not hooked up your burner. Exactly. Yeah. Because imagine going all the way to Thailand and Singapore and having any photos to share of it besides ones like exactly ABS or like circa two thousand six digital cameras, right? Those disposable cameras. Yeah. That's it. That's like the nineties. So yeah. That was kind of too bad for her that she probably at least thought you'd get an explanation during that sowed because it's got to be very you've got to feel really self conscious having abandoned on your chin whether to the hospital, so. I guess they just cut for time like with all the amazing drama that they had at the end of this. I don't know why they couldn't find room for the cure for content but exact stretches into episodes in his teeth later in the episode. So that's good stuff. That's true. That's true. This is where the Kerber report we have not talked about Kirpa on the before next week. So at least a she's trending now. After that video. I was like, oh, I really like her. But I don't think so she's not blonde too on anywhere. Yeah. Maybe bachelor in paradise where I hope sell more injuries than star. She'll definitely do one of those intros like what exactly gosh magin it now. Yes. Alright. So Thailand aside from chin injuries how excited where you for Thailand, the destination. It's never been one of those people who's been like super ear to go to Thailand or India, or like any of these like like worth survivors, some of them Fiji like any of those sort of like eastern island countries. After see. I mean, it was youthful the open shots. They were showing it looked gorgeous. I mean, if the bachelor is gonna pay an all expense paid trip for me to go there, and I can like hang on like the rooms they had and like swim in the oceans, they heard the down. It looked great. Yeah. They found paradise unit up like it was like utter like Bali or something like where it's like, a typical romantic location. Like right lanes known for that. Is it like I mean, it's beautiful, and it's like cultural, but yeah, I think it was known for. I don't know where you want to go to get your first kiss or make out in the ocean. But you know, Angela every place. The bachelor goes is the place to follow him. You're talking about. Especially if you're Heather Heather had the first. What is going on with other here so bad for because she's I like, I know she's not like she's as young as the to them, but she's clearly like younger maturity wise as well. Whereas some of the other twenty three year olds are a little bit more mature in their life experience. And like when she talks to him about her. Like, a long term relationship where she was somebody for eight months and didn't kiss us them. Yeah. Was like something's off there. But that are now. Yeah. Three zero chemistry. Right, right. How much chemistry? They have. Yeah. It really seems like she was excited to be cast on the show to get her first kiss and nothing more like she's good from here. And right because she's like, I kissed a boy. Okay. Like, no judgment. If you wait till you're whatever to kiss somebody. Great do. But it just seemed like odd that she had actually been in relationships for very long time and never got to that point. Also yet. Why would you just come on a show to like kiss somebody? I think you could do that in your privacy or on home. Yes. So she got the state where they went on a little boat ride. Tried some food. They sit up all this. Seems unlike gagging right now thinking about the food part. There's like a section where they it's like they're very focused on Colton mouth because it's all about her like a watering trying to get like a kiss, but very rare they show the lead eating anybody eating showing him like a licking shrimp, juice office fingers and her like a handful of noodles like shoving in their mouth. Yeah. They were like look growth feeding each other. Yeah. I felt so uncomfortable watching this whole date as you could tell their plant these times where when will this kiss happen? So awkward, do you think they were trolling us a little bit? Because like even when he hands her the rose, he leans in. And I thought maybe that was when I was going to happen. And it was like the music was likely, and then they like cut the music really fast knows really funny because it's like, Nope. Not yet. And I just feel like it's where you just relive. However old you were at that time when you're like, oh is the my first kiss going to happen when you're standing right next to someone looking straight ahead. Exactly. No. I don't wanna watch. It. Did you know one hundred percent? It was going to happen. Or did you think there's pencil that? He would be like, okay. I thought maybe he could be like, you know, only not feeling that way. Especially when he was just like there's a lot of pressure to being your first, it's like football. And then she's like, I don't want you to think you do not like they were not kissing tonight. Because it's happening basically is what she's rating don't think that this isn't happening because it's happening. I don't think that kiss means we have to get married. So she basically said like carry pick mainly on just like. Really awkward. Yeah. And then she just like serums that she like kissed a boy, and it was very juvenile a little bit. But yeah. To their own. Yes. Wasn't like the most awkward kiss. We see the show. So I mean, yeah, they weren't. They clearly like each other in like, at least minute sense. You know, it's not like I could see them making it a long time. Say he called magical, but kind of in the sense of light. That was the fireworks. Yeah. Like, I was the one for like her first, right? Yeah. Yeah. Of course, they brought in fireworks. That's when it happens. So. Choreographed on cloud nine nothing can ruin this nothing nothing. They. This is like the weirdest part of that sold for me. I think this is very Peter and Rachel to me. Interesting stuff. Yeah. Much earlier. So it look easy. No, no sense. I watched the scene twice. I watch again today. Just because I was like miss something. You didn't. Okay. Can you sum it up for the those are our listeners do not watch the show and just kind of what? Oh. Fan favorite. I think at this point. Everyone's like super high and Elise. She's like mature she's beautiful. She's really nice. She's really sweet at a great first one on one. She like his freaking out back hotel. She's telling all the other girls. She's like, I don't know how to deal with him going another day. It's just the typical nonsense inserters like we think it's fake drama, but she puts on this beautiful white gown first of all my. Dress keep it on a special dress like as if she was going to like just get some one on one time with him. Which is what I thought it was happening like she was going to. Yes. Instead, she gets there and she's just like. Since like, unfortunately, I feel like I need more time in attention. And since I can't call Chris to say, I need to be on every one on one. They're like rich layer is you do no matter was high and then Colin's like, okay. Well, I can totally sympathize with you. I I went through this as well. And it was super tough watching guys come back from dates, but at least it's like, no, I need it all and she was like, I don't think that I could accept her proposal after only a few months of sharing your time and attention with all these other people just like, you just can't do it, and my and he he looks at are like do, you know, what show you're on? Like, it's it's very strange to her reasoning is that she doesn't think that she can get through him going on other dates, and it's not just that. But like if he were to propose at the end of this. She would still feel like they didn't have enough time together because she had to share his affection valid. On the show of that right show. It's just hurry. And it started out where she was like we had the most amazing date. It was the best day of my life going to be just like one on one time. Yeah. So I thought he could that she was just looking for that reassurance. And it even seemed like he was trying to give that to her and give her these. Really like you. I think that we have you know, like, I went through this as well like super empathetic. And no, I can't immediately leaves him. As like, I'm stupid. I regret this. And then okay. She said something like I can't compete with her in Wichita, you, Heather Heather of all people. You're worried about is that who she was just using her as an example, like I can't compete with these other roles like it's just not in me sort of thing. I mean, she got up. Other talking about her day. Walked out mid middle of conversation. At one point. I feel like she even said like he was he had always valid arguments. And she was just like, no, I just can't like it seems very jeweler. I have to leave just not gonna work. No matter what. So I am this theory in my head that like she just wanted to go but wanted to make it more dramatic or she just, but then if you'd like she was trying to play the whole like maybe I'll be the next bachelorette like, especially when she like very Ben Hagans like, I'm on lovable. I'm so stupid. Like how I not like be able to do this for this perfect guy when we had like this like perfect relationship. And it's like, okay, you want our one day, relax, like it's my own demons and gas at candlelit when it's fair at least just say like, you're not feeling it or you don't wanna get married to him or you don't like the process is just not going to work for you. Right. But yeah, she's got away with her because I've been in tuitions before. You end up like just following through is something and then like regretting it immediately. And like not really seeing how you can fix it. But like, I don't know if that's like this situation. You know, I do think there's some sort of. Like, I guess you could say like made up part of her commerce has. Why did? Yeah. Wait until the group Dane, wait until like, hey, you get to another destination. Like, she wasn't going anywhere this episode and. She has to go back on like economy class middle seat for right? So yeah. Missed out on the cocktail party, the grip date didn't seem that great. But. No exciting destinations, and if she really wants that bachelorette. But you gotta stay longer than that. So. That's not happening now. Well before we get into the group day. I wanted to talk to you actually want to ask you if you is you are married am, it's true. Suming you had a wedding registry. Before you got married. I did have a wedding registry. Did you happen to use Zola or do, you know about Sola? No, I did not use all because it didn't exist married or just starting to exist. And it wasn't like something that I had heard about. So really, no. Yeah. I don't you consider getting married again to us. Based off their commercials, and sort of what they offer. Yes present. Considering just because I want to register get stuff everything for you. It seems so much easier. It was such a pain to create a registry, and like all the guest lists and the like the Imbizos and the website, and it's it's all in different places. So yeah, I'd be onboard. Yeah. It's really awesome. They're the wedding company that will do anything for love reinventing way wedding planning and registry is done.

And I think the most. Citing thing is all in one place. So with your your registry, you don't have to say like, okay, I'm going to step -partment store. And I'm not to pick up everything on there. And maybe one other store because I don't wanna make a too complicated for my relatives. And all that for my gas. You can put it all from one one place, but pick and choose where you like over five hundred top brands from oxo and cuisinart to Sonos an Airbnb Zoll store has the widest selection gifts at all different price points or something for every guest to give the Kenna personalise to you. Did you get a lot of gifts that weren't on your registry? And yeah. Okay. I think is inevitable. But I do think that having a little bit more of like a comprehensive registry would have helped. But again, I was twenty six. Yeah. It was like, I don't know. It's throw a bunch of stuff on there. But. Yeah. Having like a guy. Maybe I think they offer that to like disrupt what you should put on your registry that sorta stuff. Yeah. You can put the solar registry right on your wedding website. So you start with a free wedding website, which they also do. Yes. It's really easy. Just takes minutes to set up. There's over a hundred beautiful science to choose from. I was even going in there like what colors would I like? And picking different things. Did you have a color theme for your wedding sort of it wasn't like anything specific though? But yeah, I mean, I do enjoy doing that sort of stuff I have color, printers, boards and stuff. So. Narrow down that way. Choose different styles or florals are full metrics, and you can add your little stories about how you met and all your details. An FAQ section which I think would be really helpful Italy. What questions would you put on now that you're like after the wedding? There's probably something that you're like I wish like my guests knew about this or had thought about. I guess I I would say so her my wedding. It poured rain like, and it was outsold errands vineyard. So it was I would say like, hey, it's going to be outside whether unpredictable yes. Outside because then people were like like, I don't know. Like, I only have these hike yields on like you knew you were coming to a vineyard like a hurry thinking. Stuck in the ground going down one crown, but it wasn't June though. So it will be bad. Oh, what's been your thumbs lovely? And then they also have the best completion discount, which I think I would be the most excited about twenty percent off any remaining gifts. So that's right in so. Yeah. On really good. So and it starts right after your big day. There's no waiting period to get that. So if you're like, hey, I really wanted to get something that was on there. Just order it while you're on your honeymoon. And it'll be waiting for you. I will say that. When I got married there were there was a completion discount for like one other industries they had and I would just like I was like adding stuff like I didn't. I was like nobody's ever going to buy this somebody at by. It was like some furniture item. And I was like, oh, yeah. Care for me. I was just hoping to use the discount on it afterwards. Right. So funny. That. Yeah. So with all those planning features right there that one stop shop, the free wedding website and being able to really tailor your registry right for you.

Think of the contestants are most likely to be engaged at the end and potentially using Zola. You have any favorite so far. God. So I out of this season. You mean like who in col- cold? Hopefully, colton. Hey, maybe two of the women are giving go off that'd be great. That'd be the dream. So I do like. Annabi and kale kale? And even though they're rivals or whatever. Really calmed down this week dead. Yeah. They like they like hugged at the end of last episode. Nobody didn't hear from them at all. I like both of them. And then I do really like Cassie who knows if she's there for the right reasons, whatever, but I like her, and they clearly have a chemistry. So I do feel like that's going to go far and then money on Teixeira in bachelor in paradise funding. Somebody. She's catch. She really is. She. Had her bungee jump last week, but continue to shine this week in Lee, I really didn't expect that I was just going to fade to the background like. Episode. We've seen more people cana- G and Katie face, the background but pace really stood out on the group date. And so a group date was survival group date like we saw an RA season. But it's in Thailand, so's more fun. And we had some kind of interesting detours happen here. And one of them was that Patia. Will the fast one on the other two in her group pulled him aside? Like you to go get water, and he called him come with me. And we'll go get food or something then just like planted while whatever I felt like they were they were trying the two other girls, Nicole. And then I think the other was Katie. Yep. Yep. Invisible. Katie I feel like they were trying to make like a big deal out of it. But they didn't really care that much like both of them sort of get the like this is awkward, but whatever she a chance to do. Good on her. I search for like react react. And they were like, oh, this is weird. This is awkward. Where's joel? Whereas jungle Joe, right? Yes. So there's jungled Joe. Making them really making them do anything on it. More on it to right and Hannah was the one who is all eat this grub. Be. So I do like Annabi, but I do feel like she's one of those girls that I would not be able to be friends with in real life because she would be constantly like doing things for the spotlight. Like, it's like, yeah. Sure you can eat. I'm sure five of the other girls could eat that bug to if they were on survivor and like a million dollars online. Right, but they didn't have to. So they didn't. But she's like looking at me look at me. I'm doing it. Like, I'm such a like cool jungle girl. Yeah. And I feel like she's it's like the spotlight. But it does feel like she really it's Colton is the spotlight she wants not necessarily TV time. Not really attention. She just wants like the boys attention. Yep. Yep. Because we get. The show. Right. And she's had to really work her way back up like she's been confessional thing. Okay. I think I've finally back. So maybe there's less likely and bugs in her. I don't know if Colton is the kind of guy that like likes that kind of girl. That's like because he keeps he kept running. Like these women are intense. Like, I ran away from a snake, and I would never have eaten a bug. So. Threw it for just don't see him being the kind of guy that like values a girl that like is a super fearless or can like go after whatever. Like, I think he likes sweet girl, girl, you know, point. I don't think it's going to really went out in the end like well, specifically, I think it it's not a bad tack now. No, it is good for getting passed on bachelor in paradise. I would think so. Going far too. She's gain for anything. Oh, yeah. I do think she's a walk for sure. Yes. So we did see an interesting strategy on this group date with my favorite team. So funny. Demi was also much quieter this episode Demi and the to Hannah's, so what did you think of their survival loved it? I thought it was so funny. I just think that I've been in situations like this before like for corporate or like team events like one company I worked for we had like an offsite retreat, and we did this game where you had to like run around the town that we were in and like like a scavenger hunt slash trivia things. Like, oh, find the statue. That says this like what's on? It's whatever need the right? And we were in Napa, California. So we it was so it was so great. But we were just like, okay. Well, why don't we just dip into this like the one of the girls like let's just go in here and like tastes some wine. And I was like I felt really bad because I was like, I'm the HR director. So I was like the one that together. I probably should play. But at the same time like it's always like go with the flow. Like, I don't think that hit like Hannah g would necessarily be the one to suggest that. But she was like, okay. Like, I'll go along with it. Because these two girls are like kind of crazy and fun. You know, better. No. And it was like much more fun for sure. Yeah. I think the part of me that was like. I couldn't do it is just more that like people pleasing like because that guy was there. Posting raker. Yeah. Yeah. Like oh jungle, what's he gonna think? But luckily, he laughed and he didn't give them the prize, but he left so. So it's the bachelor it's like they kind of like when you do crazy stuff like that. But in real life. Yeah. I feel like you'd get in. Team building not necessarily, although they did build the team like they were like definitely for together more unified. Yeah. And I love Demi. Oh my God. I think she's so funny. She somebody who like in the beginning on a bad rap. I think and just like a pretty bad edit. But I feel like the way she acts on the show is definitely how people I know what act just very likes is kind of dumb. But like, right. And I think so. But like sort of making fun of it while she's doing it. Right. And I feel like this episode proved that most of the women also really like her there wasn't drama with her specifically they kind of laughed at her when she I wanna be crazy last week. Yes, Courtney, and then she had issues with Tracy in the past. But I feel like very specific issues with those people. And then if you're not like going out of your way to call her out on something like just enjoy her and laugh at with her and. Yeah. So yeah. So veer off course and go to the the bar and bring back wine cheeseburgers for Colton. Instead of he loved it. He was listening to that. Right thought that was so funny. Yeah. So. Let me think. So then after this. They went to like what they always do like go have. Yeah. Like a little cocktail hour hour, and he got to have individual time with different women. And this is when we get that. I like beginning of the feud with on call. Yeah. Yes. What was struck me about this was on ywca holes? Demi aside. It's like I'm going to do this like she needs dummies approve of like Demi was just right gas. You just do it. Do it Demis totally like the like devil with red dress like just like come on? Yeah. Like, let's like syndrome a- link. She would never I don't think advise an actual friend to be so destructive. She's like, hey, you take the heat this time go for it have fun. Yeah. So apparently, a lease had some parting words some point to Aneka about like, why don't we know? Oh, yeah. Heard. Apparently, according to a lease but smear not I don't know. Lisa reliable, married at this point. I cannot follow her logic at all she was leaving. Do you think like, maybe at least did hear something? And maybe at least did feel that way, and she did tell onion kebob, but the. Then later tastes like I was there that is what happened. So. Yes. Very terrible for Nicole. Yeah. So on you told Colton that at least told her Nicole said that she just wants to get out of Miami. And that's why she's off the show which was still like, no I like, I don't want. I can't say that. It's like the worst. They're there for the wrong reasons area like. She's there to like, I don't know like start her career in acting or she's there to be a model, you know, like different than like she just wants to leave Miami. Like, I don't know we all wanna leave somewhere at some point like. And I didn't really get the vibe from Nicole that she. Very like open hearted and just. Exactly hockey motor brother and seem like she has really mostly to our family there. So I wasn't really buying it at that point. But then yeah, like, you said tesa cleared it up right away. Which is something we really don't see on this show. Very much. Yeah. I was like kinda surprised the taste was like willing to just sort of put herself out there and say, Nope. That's not right. Like, I'm not gonna let this like you. You're making something up right now. Right. And she's right. Like, if she had just gone to Nicole, it can yoga just gone to Nicole and said like, hey, at least told me this. I'm like a little concerned, you know, like like to hear, but you have to say like, it would have been cleared up, and Colton wouldn't be the wiser so right too bad. Now, it's a mess. And here's why still trying to figure out is. So Patia said that the Nicole's like, yes, thank you so much. Why didn't Nicole take Patia and say like, hey Holton? Here's what patience say, obviously, Colton and Teixeira have a strong connection. He trust her. Why not style in and corner? Totally or even she just went back to him and said, hey, Colton like I'm so sorry. Like, I feel really awful about this. But after speaking the Teixeira, she let me know that like a lease maybe misconstrued some things. So I'm sorry to have made such a mess. But I wanna make sure that you know, that like Nicole is here the reasons are over. Yeah. I handle it. It's like admit that you did something wrong. But it seems like on Janka doesn't wanna be like in the wrong. So she's in her whole so much deeper than it needs to be. I feel like either of them have done something to improve their like, Nicole could've gone unexplained. Like, oh now, I remember what I said. Said and it was just like you've got to seize different opportunities. And she never clarifies it to him. Right. And then on Asia. Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry. What does seem pretty easily? So maybe that was why go to him. Maybe she just like couldn't even think of through this link to overwhelm. But yeah, so that was really the big drama on that data continues later on. But also Annabi. I think it's the first drop the falling Amar. She was ready and in mind, it felt like it was okay finicky wanted her say it. So I mean, she's had her one on one they've worked through a lot of things and he gave her the group date rose. So that is pretty good validation there that it wasn't didn't free KOMO so yeah, I just feel kind of lost in the shuffle of the Nicole is this for him in tesa do the lantern or today to that later that was at the rose ceremony. Yeah. He does make a point till I talked to her and tell her that he felt special what she liked pulled him aside. Whatever super into Hannity thinking that she looks like I don't know, Laura Croft or something call. Did he say that? Or is this your for like, she was out of a jungle magazine. Yes, they probably couldn't need anything Clark craft sec. Yeah. Yes. Think. Trying to think of anyone else any Kaelin was so super quiet this episode. I almost thought she got eliminated last week. I was like we did she oh home. Hey. And then I show it. But then I remembered she was there during when the other girl got her one on one card Cassie, so whatever, right. Speaking of Cassie she's the one getting one on one. And then they did show some of the women talking about, oh, he's got such a connection with her and sort of disgusting what card set or something. I don't know if you've called her or like news agency like that. They definitely have chemistry. So which is funny because that one person was like, you guys are siblings. Yeah. It was so funny day when she was like, I just feel like I've known you for so long. Well, a few believe what a fortune teller, then all the people to get this one on one quote, unquote, private island where it was just a patch of sand and in the middle of the ocean. Like, it was good that it was her because they had such good chemistry. It was very natural. It wasn't like it would be awkward. So I feel like to qualify for private island, you need at least one palm tree or was literally a sand dune. It was just like they brought them to a pile of sand in the middle of the ocean. And laid a blanket down I had such anxiety. When they did that though because I was like where is she going to go to the bathroom, and they're there for a long time on these one ones because it's like. Call aqua dumb. I mean. Yeah. I don't think like that. I feel like we should have to do that. But number onesies, but you could definitely do that in the ocean. But still I'd be like, hey, Colin like, I gotta go dip myself in the ocean. Right. Oh, my super awkward weird zoom in on. Like, it looked like two pairs of swimsuit bottoms on the sand laying there, and then they showed them making like are they trying to imply that they're like. But yeah, it was just a make out day. And which I think is a good sign for whoever is chosen for those like private island dates versus there's light survivalist like. And there's nothing to like distract you from the other person. So it's like you have to like that person to go on a one on one on a block of sand. Exactly. Yeah. I love how they're trying to sell it like a private island. It was nothing. No. No. No. No. Yeah. That was that look like in the survivalist. Nightmare is also super frayed of the ocean. Like the rap listeners just blew his spot up. Like he doesn't like open water at all like he refuses to go on a cruise. And like when we were on our honeymoon. We like went kayaking in the ocean. And he was like we can't go too far. And there's like literally guy standing there like from the resort. Just like watching his kayak. I was like I think we'll be fine, but he would die. If this was him like your trumpet good his part of the survivor press. Now that he's doesn't like ineligible from competing because he couldn't go on. Because he couldn't you know. I think he'll be fine doing. Okay, you could do like. Talking like, I knows anything about that. Like if he were to go on like unsaid, which is like a hope his that. He would like I don't think that he would have a problem like being near the ocean is not like, oh, yeah. No. I meant to contestant that he could. Yeah. Water challenges. But I bet he didn't really get. Says he doesn't know how to swim. But like, he definitely can like doggy paddle. He's fine. Okay. Good. Yeah. Some of these dates like, depending what your fears are like could be someone's dream date. But here's where's the bathroom that is legit fear that you know, it's usually in their bios. Bathroom miters used to joke that like we'd go into a restaurant like anyone who had to go south in which is asked me because I already knew where it was. Because I I've gone. And other you're pregnant, I'm sure it's like more. It's rough like, I don't know how we're going to get through this. Move along. What else happened? On their day. Let's see. Right. So they go to like like typical like evening like fake dinner. Right. And then they have a tough comer sation again, quote, unquote, where she says that she is worried because her family back home doesn't know she's not a virgin. S again, virgin. Like that. I guess she's twenty three three twenty four. I mean shocked that a twenty year old girl had sex before. So as Haley on the last. So we learned that has she has appeared on another reality show called young one. Which is like the first time it ever heard of that one. You guys talked about it never has never heard of it. And then airs on I don't know if it's just a web series. But at least they released an episode online. So she's back in like another season of it. That's airing right now. And it's with her boyfriend, your, it's okay. And it looks like. Google. Put showed look very like hills. Ask her boyfriend is like a surfer guy on dark hair. And there's only thing Colton and all to her ex boyfriend. But it seems like they're following like will they won't they get back together. Obviously, like, she's on the bachelor now, I don't know when this phone, but I think this does I guess give context or I was saying before that like because this is like their Christian, right? That's like return to Amish type thing but van shell. Shelhah call. Yes. So I guess she scared that like her family would judge her for not being virgin 'cause like she went to this college where it was like a crime to have sex, basically. And then I learned that Heather went to that same college. So they might even like somehow know each other, or at least know like mutual funds. On. It's it's young wants dot CA. It must be does. She not have to disclose Canadian reality shows when she apply feel like, hey, have you been on the American reality shows just like knowing what is dot C as Canada. So right weird. Can you view it? I wonder if we can watch I'm on their website right now. And it's like, I can see the episodes. Okay. Yeah. Dodgeball, hotdogs and women. Woobay risque does sound like a group date there. Dodgeball. We've had a dodge featured pretty prominently right now is like she's obviously there that makes take it in. Yes. Right. Interesting. So I don't know if the bachelor has stumbled onto a new, you know, forget Nashville now, it's like viola universities where they go and find these women, maybe I think Cassie is very very pretty though. She's like just you're like if you're looking for like, a very nice down to earth blonde, girl. I think that she matches. Exactly, well, Colton. In my opinion would want because I know him. So well, well, she does look at that. They do look like they could be siblings that she have dimples to on fresh face. Thinking that. But I guess like. I was just thinking of the type of girl that he would like, and it's definitely like a blonde surfer like down to earth Boho chick sense to me for some reason. I don't know why football player usually they want like I dunno. She's done right girl. Yeah. So even though she had to like. She's not. Would you like it come down here on the bachelor? I think that's worse. Yeah. I thought it was funny where she was like talking to him about him revealing that he wasn't comparing to her revealing. She was like how did you feel with it? It's like there. Well, they're kind of. Yeah. I don't think surely had anything like troublesome are tragic in her past and she wanted to like create something. Yeah. It just kind of bothered me that feels like these women like Hannah be as well on her date. It's if they're not a virgin, they feel like they have to like really overly apologize for it in a way. And it's like, hey, that's a different choice, then he made. But he's always been so open about how it's like not. It's not like a choice that he has made for any other reason than it just hasn't happened yet. So yeah, he is. Shing anyone, but he's not. That's probably a producer thing. Like, hey, you've got to reveal something he's opened what is rich in. So you got one way or the other guy to talk about it. They were very cute together. Agree and then. Yeah. Just a lot of making out. And then we go back to the bro ceremony does not include because we have so much drama Steaua. It's just like continued drama from the group date though. It's the same thing. So I felt like it was very silly. But it all started out because Nicole was talking to Colton. And it seems like it was just gonna like breeze on by like it wasn't going to be a big deal. And then she pauses, and she was like, I feel like I need to tell you something more known. You're so stupid. Would've just gone away. Like, I don't think it was a thing. Yeah. He told her like, listen, like, I, you know, I believe you or like, you know, I can tell you very kind hearted and care about. Night's arson. So like, we're not talking about this anymore. And I think on Janka was like a little pissed that Nicole even did bring it up again because she was sort of like, I feel uncomfortable that I made the mistake. So I kinda just want to forget about it. Yeah. No dice. All snow. She had to bring it up. Again. I'm say that I'm Yuka was has been bowling her her since day one basically and called her mentally unstable. And while there is the whole discussion about whether it was emotionally unstable or mentally unstable Nicole's like, I think they're the same thing. Yeah. Shakeup, I think in this scenario. Yes, they are being referred to in a similar way. And I think that you know, you really shouldn't be calling anyone unstable in in a sense of their like, emotional or mental state. But I don't think there was a difference when it comes to like, the semiotics of Nicole speech. But right, right. Yeah. It was whole mess. It's sort of like every week. There's two people having an issue Colton ethical back and forth between them, and it seems like his move is always like right away. Grad the other person they like this. Has that? Okay. The least don't really usually do it exactly the same way. They'll find like some other time. But it's like all right. So and I quote, she said that you said this. Yet. So uncomfortable with confrontation, though, that I do feel like he thinks that if he can just get it out of the way it'll just go away, and they'll be done like so might be. That's where he's coming from because. Yeah, you're right. He just like somebody tells him something in confidence about another girl. And he goes straight to that girl and says, hey, so and so just told me this about you what's up with that? I know what was I guess Katie was sitting there with him and they're screaming at each other. Poor katie's like, okay, I guess I'll just sit here while you go. Yeah. Yeah. It was. She's like I love it here. It's so serene. And then we hear like them yelling at each other in the distance. Yeah. And how was that? When he first goes on sits there, and he's like, okay. I'll just let you guys into your conversation. And they don't miss a beat. They continue arguing in front of him. Because I don't think that they expected him to come over in the first place because when he first comes over and a cold, it's like sobbing on Janka. And as soon as she sees cold, and she like completely changed her presentation. She's like, oh, hi, hi Colton. She just hear everything that you're saying don't find me over here. He thought maybe I think she thought she could like maybe get away with him like not talking about it again with them right now. No. Yeah. We didn't see really anything else, except there was that lantern moment to have a little levity. The teeth fall saying. Housing. And then at the end of that sowed when they have that little like, oh that was funny. Yeah. The little funny right with a Sydney who was just think relegated for these ended episode moments. I don't really don't see her too much. But when they played the end of the episode moment, I was like, I don't know who that is. Yeah. So she was explaining innuendos to him does. And he was just not getting at which I don't think is like. You can still be a virgin and understand like sex innuendos sleep. It's not that complicated. She was saying like you'll be my like my like, my gardener like she was like pointing at her vagina. So. Pretty obvious obvious and pretty awkward. Yeah. Let seems like maybe like out of the limo. Make a joke kind of thing. But it seems like a weird toast to make at the state. Especially when we haven't had that one on one time to really know this c- humor. But yeah, that was an interesting move. We get enough drama enough of a cliffhanger apparently with this feud because Colton storms from Anita and the coal not storms off he just sort of eases. He's talked to them. He's like walking on the beach like. That they made this like it did not need to be to be continued. Like, they really could have ended it like two minutes on. Don't need like our biggest thing. Like why? Why did this happen to be because the middle episode like I can see where they're going. But. Nah, something like the least thing is a lot more of like a cliffhanger. I feel like they could have made that. But this. Yeah, I next week does look drama filled as it always looks. But I don't know what I'm going to go on X week either. But I didn't know what was going to go on with least this episode. So at least the previews are have been panning out for me so far, but I feel like I've been totally thrown off yet. I think this one is just gonna blow over pretty quick. But do you think he is going to eliminate both of them like even before rose ceremony? Yes. The navy? I don't know. I do think that he needs to he should he should have just sent them home, right then. But like it's inappropriate that you're yelling at each other. I don't see that. We're going to move much further past our current status relationship is so yeah, I I think at least five other girls that he super into so right? And his just yeah. Neither of them are going much further or they weren't going to. And this is just shortening their stay, and it's too much for him to deal with I think so just for his own sanity. I think just to take a breather. Speaking of taking a breather. Angela. I would like to know since you're pregnant has your sense of smell changed at all. I love these are all like cater to maybe a pregnant. It's like everyone's just like, oh, you're pregnant. That's you. Yes, it has. I would say like we spoke about before the first five months were a lot of issues and smell was massive issue for me everything small awful, like even my own apartment. Like a hated just like existing so. And I've always been super super sensitive smell for. Sure. Okay. So when I smell like bad things. Yeah. Who does I in somebody who when it comes to fragrances and things like that? I like to have something new I like to I like to also not venture out to stores and have someone tell me what I should like. And that's a worse. Flute worst. Don't come up, very me. So I ended up especially in the Minnesota winter kind of just hibernating and being like, oh, I would love to like smell wonderfully. Like, I'm sure all these women on the bachelor do, but it's just not that easy. When I don't wanna go outside and some stuck with kind of like old perfume bottles and stuff that I probably should have freshened up a long time ago things get stale and they're not exciting anymore. But there's something new, and it's called centered at least new to me and what a censored censored the luxury. I want you to know what this bird is a luxury fragrance subscription service for perfumes and colognes, and it's a way for you to discover new perfumes and flown without buying entire bottle. You know, what I love the bachelor, but I hate commitment. So this is really exciting for both men. Haley detriot. I know she's very upset to not be here this week to talk about it. 'cause we both have been trying for a little bit here. And try outs. Yes. Trying out different presumes. Yes. It's very exciting. There's more than four hundred fifty designer brands choose perfume or Cologne from each month. So you can try the brands you want product, Tom Ford for sake ontai. Don't Jacobina Cartier last CA fun. Yeah. And just it's the real deal. It's not like, ooh. Some imitation here. Exactly. And you get a thirty day supply. So you can really fresh in your teen. Try something new perfect amount to one hundred twenty sprays enough to apply more than four times daily for a month. So let me tell you about some of the ones I picked I picked oddity by Reagan bone, which is a unisex one, which I thought it'd be fun. I can always leave some for my boyfriend to try, and you know, how like it smells a little different on different. Yeah. Each individual person. So that was one that I really liked you can go on and choose by profile, and what you want things to smell like do you want? Something light. Do you want something floral? So I was in the mood for later fragrances. I tried romanced Provence by Kathryn melon Drina, which is like springing and in the winter weather. Yes, it's I felt like I think it is. I think it is walking on our spring day and honor woman by on awash. I can't pronounce any of them. But they're very fun. That's okay. As long as they smell good. Yes. I picked mostly French ones low couture by at least saw and I really liked all of them because I was able to narrow down by my, you know, fragrance personality and what I was looking for. And so that was a lot of fun. You can also take a quiz to find which one quit. Yes. That's very fun. And Haley has tried for saw. I know everyone wants to know verse Saatchi Aeros glossy. You Juliette has a gun anyway and Kate Spade in full bloom. So we'll have to get her thoughts later, boom. Oh, you gotta try that. One. They're using. Yes. So with centered it's just a way to mix up my fragrance routine without breaking the Bank, and I'm just super excited about it. The thirty day I feel like a great gift as well because. Yeah, you know for an anniversary for somebody's birthday to get that for them to try out something new, and we have a exclusive offer just for our listeners to get fifty percent off your first month. So it's only seven fifty or your first fragrance. Go to centered dot com slash batch and use my code batch for fifty percent off your first month. Again, that's a C E N T E. I R D dot com slash batch for you to try your first perfume or Cologne or just seven fifty sign on smell amazing now just like centered has their true sent whiz I've come up with a little quiz. For you based on Healy's absence. Angela. We have a new a new Twitter user on the scene taking over Haley's identity. It was her boyfriend Ethan. Now, I know you might have seen like a little bit of it. But I know you're pulled away from Twitter as I had to give up the TV. So you to split up about syrups onery did default to celebrity big brother for Mike. Are you keeping up with that kind of it's hard? It's so many. Coming up with like, what's happening? But not watching all that the sewed whistle India now feel like it the wrong way to do it. But I don't know maybe watch them. There's no right way. Similar ish. Big brother. I don't think I'm dabbling and dropping in here and there because we've got the bachelor going on, but hurston McInnis who was our participant draft with us this year had the great idea of did Haley tweet this Ethan tweet this under Haley's Twitter. Underscore. While he was in Mexico. Yes. Ethan picked up the reins, and so I have compiled few options of Haley's past tweets a few options of ethan's tweets from last night. And I would like you to use with all. Knowing Haley, very well. Who tweeted aright? Sorry, ready for the righty. Okay. So. With an easy. Here's one. Some of the kissing scenes in this are serious hashtag GIO T level stuff. Plus all the talk about Cassi being his sister last week. I'm shook hashtag the bachelor. Jio not again thrown. Clearly, eat them because. Doesn't like TV or maybe aren't trashy reality television. Ding beaming one on the board. Plus he's like last week. Cassie was a sister. Just no egging get around. He's great. Great job this first season watching the bachelor. I'm just amazed. Because Haley never believed that he would ever watch it. But hey, move in with someone a few. Thank you know, you've got to turn the TV over to celebrity big brother and Ethan for the bachelor. Yes. All right. Number two. I was also looking forward to seeing the character arc for Catherine's dog. But what can you do hashtag the bachelor? Ooh. Tough one because I know that Haley loved stocks, specifically corgis. But I'm gonna say Ethan because of the what can you do? Sounds like a boy things. You are right. I am impressed. He knows Catherine still she's been gone for a while. That's true pick a name out of some there. I guess she was memorable because she did have a dog. Number three. Am I drunk or do I like Colton now hashtag the bachelor Celli? It was actually a poll too. Poll. Number four, the boat guy better be getting paid a lot to deal with this. Yes, hashtag the bachelor the boat guy. Boy. No, I eat. That was healing could've been both. It was very big. I have to take. I was actually promote we learned from Eaton's tweets. He's very specific on names. So I mean. I mean are both on this episode's. I thought I could get away at this one. All right. I have the next one. I have a statement cardigan, actually, hashtag the bachelor. This is some because that is one of the ones I did see those eat. This is the one that led Kirsten. This was the one person to be like Kay and sounds like something Haley would say so that's the start of the game was talking about like something that Colton was wearing. But. Arab everybody just thought it was really funny. All right. So four two one you are doing well here. Next one here society didn't place so much stock in virginity. We wouldn't be having this boring season of the bachelor hashtag hashing the bachelor take Haley. Yes. That was his comments virginity aspects. Yeah. I mean, he sat on the other seasons to compare it to. So that's true. I think he's excited by the season right now living for it. Clearly. Next one. Oh, what a shock. We've got on our hands hashtag the bachelor. Emma's a Haley because it was really big. That's true. That is from two twenty six eighteen. Eighteen lari season. I don't know what was shocking, but. Next one. He just walked into the sea. And was never seen again hash take the bachelor. That was like. Yeah. Just an excuse for me to read this very seen again. That's not really not really the toughest game here. I fun game though. Yes. I think we've done. Well, let's see here fun fact about me, I hate watching people open mouth kiss, hashtag the bachelor. Magus Haley because the sounds like something she would hate. Yes. Center that as well. That's all from Ari season. But hey it worked for this episode as well. Well, he was a notoriously awkward and gross open mouth kiss her. So yes. Watch for Heather tesa to be medevac in the next episode hash take the bachelor. Ethan. I just don't think Kelly were pretty meta fact king. Those to at least I don't know very specific to this episode. Here's Ivan looking trips to Thailand all night. How did you know the bachelor? So I guess Ethan because his Thailand I full. Oh, yes. Tricks. We'll sit again, we are not this tweet was from February fourth two thousand thirteen. I think that must be Sean lows. He's. Before we were even podcasting last and they went to Thailand way back then history was made way back then I did a search on Twitter. I wasn't like scrolling guys. Look for the word Thailand not obsessed with daily, but. Doc away. This one is in response to a Twitter user at Elizabeth Bs seventeen. Give me give me Hannah Hannity and Cassie all day too. We are very much on the same patriot. Now. Yes. Even. Fifty. And then let's see. I hope Colton changes his shirt before him and Heather kissed. So she doesn't have to tell people about it. When she describes her first kiss staying there. It's a boy that's eat then. Yeah. Who's wearing something weird too? I think yeah. I can't remember what it was very inches. Like, it was super casual or date. And then I will end with they should all break up with him hash, take the bachelor. Haley. Yes, it could be from any season by believe was from Reid. He's she often tweets things like they should all break up with him and date each other like I wish they would break up with him. So. Yes. Yes. Exactly. We could start a lot going for some of these like what we say every season. They. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. We don't want that. That's your bought. But the repeat all the same dates. It's like sometimes I go back, and like, so I supply our wonderful producer Scott Saint Pierre the notes to post with the show and I'll go back for like a template. Like, okay, how do I organize it last year? And I'm like, wait. Oh, the group date is like very similar to what was before. And I'm like copy paste paints the structure, so we're. Because like that survival date was probably the same week on season. Just last year. It's up there in Tahoe. Instead of lamb. I think Thailand's a better location. I date. That's true. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know why they all didn't just go to the bar that one seriously smart. So that was very fun. You I think needs to start his own bachelor Twitter. I think you'd have a lot of followers. And I was very brave of Haley to let him which you let Mike take over your Twitter because most of the people that follow me, I think it would know who he was. Okay. It was. But like a lot of people that follow me that are like besides like my family, maybe, but I don't have like co workers or anything follow me. I don't think maybe they do at least on Twitter like Instagram. Yes. But yeah. Yes. I hope I was sober. I don't know. I could do that. But let's see. So we have. Well, I don't know why I'm so reluctant to go draft results this time because you're like killing it just doing pretty good, I suppose six people left. I mean, no one left really except believe I mean, I guess. Yeah. I mean, I guess that's true this week team nation. So yeah. So I'll just give an accurate, right? So. For week five. I lead with one hundred ten points and six people left. Haley gains a little ground ninety one point. So it's not too far behind, but she only has three people left. So she's got I think you've got this in the bag. So she has the. Geico has other casting just Cassie though. And. George says Kirsten said what may be ready for baseball season, seventy four points and three left so trailing far behind our strategies, finally working. I don't wanna like, you know. What does the phrase? But your cart before the horse. Yeah. We were like fine. We need. Somebody doesn't you guys gave yourself a little bit more leeway with research this time, which was good too. That's true. We did watch Chris Harrison's video which is very informative. It was it was Bentley too many stray. So that's good. Let's see we have a few questions that came on Twitter, unfortunately, because Healy was gone and. We'll just we speaking. I did not really figure out how to put up the question thread that he'll usually does. We'll just save most of our questions if you have them until next week because you know, it was a to be continued to. So we don't how can we really answer these questions. We don't know here. It's really unclear so same with Email. She answers that inbox so bachelor half up at Mel dot com. But we did get some questions comes through on Twitter. So Jordan Kayla wants to know, what does Kirpa think about all of this hashtag Kirpal edit, and I just loved that passion. I love curb. I think she is would be a great narrator for the show. I'm sure she's just sitting there like what is happening and then like notices something in colts teeth and whips at our floss that she up. Like that. The video of her like the chin thing really did show her personality, and it's just made me a little sad showing her. So pre made me think though, she probably has this whole story in her mind like how the seasons going to go and that she was not even getting any airtime gracious on by he's on Dan date on her chin. Yeah. But at least it was memorable this week. And then. Jordan also ass. So Joe the Taichung is the bachelor version of Totta the bushmen. Now, do you know top how the bushman I am familiar with? So yes, he does seem to speak a little bit more English. Yeah. But he did come guide them the same way. So they can survive in Thailand. Remember exactly what which ceasing that was. Cochran. Remember? It was Vance favorites. Good of me to know who he was wrong. So I'm not gonna put you on the spot there. And then strange ways with two SS on Twitter says does at least realize she's on the bachelor this is so heavy. Yeah. I wouldn't say his petty. But yeah, it's like naive of her to realize to think that was like going to be any different. Yeah. Not sure what she's thinking. She was the one who fell victim to that. Like that an early date early on freaked out can't see. And she's the last person I would have thought he always talked about how much. Like intelligent and exceed like, she had a good head on her shoulders show. I guess she just. Lost it. Yeah. I mean, maybe something to do with it. I can mess with me for not getting hired. Yeah. I regret my decision. I'm just sleepy. Yeah. Yeah. Girl. You must be for sure. I don't have a good excuse right now. Anymore awake? If I wasn't pregnant to be honest with you. So it's must have something to be like, hey babies got sleep. Right. Yeah. It'd be like, I'm so tired Kellyanne. You should go wrestling. Okay. I will have you had any fun pregnancy cravings or anything like that. No. We really haven't. I'm just in like because of all the other issues. I had I think maybe I skipped that. All right. We'll say, yeah. There's still time. And then luckily, although we don't have a questions yet. We did manage to get takes from Doug which. Thanks goodness excited. All right. So he sent them to me and take number one. I like numbers them all out take one has anyone ever seen Heather and Elise in the same room. My fear is that she's actually the same person. And it's just hoping to double her odds. I mean, how came in at least left. That's true. I guess they don't really look like though. Now unfortunate take two. How do you think the guy who dated for eight months without kissing feels after seeing her share kiss with someone would literally made out with like ten other people in the previous twenty four hour. Yeah. I feel I feel for that guy. Because like, I just don't know if I could do that. If you like somebody like if you have chemistry. How do you know? Eight months that was that was interesting baby. Take three. My dad thought there was a very reasonable chance next week showed be cancelled after all the women drink water in the jungle. He said he said Colton could just take that guy Joe on a date instead. Take for. I'm not convinced that a private island that has no bathroom or shade. Isn't any way romantic? Hey, oh my gosh. We're on the same page ill. You also had the shitty bonus of having the world's crappiest vote as only way to get there. They were writing like these like catamaran's sort of laughs, always like. You're on a total inclined. They're I not like a ski. Oh. Inch planks of wood on the ocean may take five my dad gave up on the episode when the softcore porn music started playing during Colton and Cassie slash others, endless make out session. Oh, I think he's saying Kassian Heather the same person. Maybe or maybe maybe both make out sessions. He's talking about. He said he had to get up early to drive our neighbor to the airport, but we both knew it was just really weird watching together. They did a lot of kissing. I'm Cathy state. Yeah. A lot of lives. A lot of lip. Smacking. Take six how come we got no footage of corpus drunk southeast chin split that would have been far more dramatic than watching Patia till on yoga at the thing. At least told her about Nicole was not accurate, preach. Yes. Take seven you're faced with a hypothetical situation. Would you rather? A actually only have Hannity is your partner in his ambi- apocalypse be tried to help. At least coherently understand that she's on a show where multiple people the same person at the same time or see survive in the jungle with only that guy Joe to talk to while the whole time carrying a friendly snake was only vice is a -cially urinating on you. Yeah. I mean, I think see. Ios seems cool. That's true. And I don't think I would survive the apocalypse with Hannah bay. I'm like, I think I'd kill her. Yeah. Sino? Have you? Listen to podcasts dirtyjohn or watch TV show, John. No, okay. But I'm familiar all right. Zombie apocalypse reference in that. So I was like I wonder if she sent to that. And now.

Thank you so much for making time to come down during the game developers conference. I know it's usually a very busy week for you. It is. But I broke my toll a couple of weeks ago. So I'm taking it easy. And this is actually really good to sit down, and I will take any excuse that I can get because I've been wanting to have you on the show forever. So for people who aren't familiar with Meghan? She is the president of the academy of interactive arts and sciences, which just put on dice the dice. And the dice a words to him just a couple of weeks ago. It did and got war was the big winner that night. It was we were here just a couple of days ago. If you guys have missed that special episode. Thank you for the segue, by the way, you guys can download that on your favorite podcast app. Or of course, you can find the video at YouTube dot com slash what's games. We had core in here, and we chatted for a little over forty five minutes about the talk that he's giving GD this week. And of course, he's up for more wards. The GDP awards which are happening tonight. So by the time, you guys listen to this episode the winners or you've been decided how many do you think Corey is going to take home tonight? Most of them. But I say, it's you know, I just love how much he cares about his team. And he brought his entire team to the dice words. So every different category. They won they the team came up and accepted the awards, and then gave him applause and accolades, and it just it's a feel good story. I'm really proud of that whole team. Yeah. I don't mind that they win everything. That's with people are kind of in unison about is that they are studio that clearly has a lot of heart and has worked really long time and not to say that other studios that are nominated. Don't correct I had a really fun conversation with Brian into her from insomniac games about always being the bridesmaid. And who are the? I was happy. They at least something at the words. It's hard when you go up against when there's so many good titles in the same year. It's hard you never. You just never know someone's having to lease your game on a crappy year for everything. Just to sit on for well, but there's never going to be another crappy year. I don't think video games obviously have in a little bit of Evan flow. But it seems like more often than not in the last five years. Just hasn't been a down year. I mean innovation is it's incredible in our industry. And we see something new every year even got war when you think it's an old game. It's not it's new and it's create us as BIC, exactly. Well, we are going to dive into so many topics with Meghan on the show this week. But before we get to that we have just a little bit of housekeeping.

Or even the kids that are close to being twenty but not quite there. But we do have a lot of parents that watch the show, and of course, packs of such a great community and family oriented show to go to. So we have parents that are bringing their kids to the show. But then they're like, well, what am I supposed to do with my kid when I go to the meet and greet? You can bring them with. I'm just waiting for that moment when the parent comes with a little child, and they're like, we love your show. It's like, oh, no. Can you? Sorry. It's true. We're corrupting role models.

I'm glad you mentioned GD see because something that a lot of people might not know about us that used to be the GM GD. I've been my first she was in two thousand and I've my last one was two years ago. Do you get a little teary eyed when you come back, do you know? I don't get to go wherever I want any longer which they don't like all acts. Can't go into closed rooms like go. And rooms where nobody knows. I am. Yeah. No. But JC, it's an it's evolved. And I'm actually really kind of sad because it's doing so much better since I love. I love would fail just a tiny little bit actually. The foundation is your throw. I will take credit for that keeps growing after. But I love seeing the things that you really champion when you were the GM like one of the things that always sticks out to me right away are the pronoun ribbons people's badges, which I think is really great because being inclusive was something that is still kind of allusive to the games industry. Well, I read a tweet the other day from someone who said I went to juicy in twenty fourteen and it was my nightmare. I didn't feel comfortable. There was no in there like me. And now, this is my first time coming back since then, and it's filled with people like me, and I feel so at home, and I think that I'm not saying I did all of that. But we started offering a lot of new scholarship. So we started the only way you're gonna change diversity is to make it happen. So we gave people free passes to Judy see underrepresented developers. Just just come just fill the halls. I don't care if you didn't pay this. I want you there. And I think that prompted this this new they feel safe there now. So. So I'm really happy about that the juicy is a different beast than it was five years ago. Oh, absolutely. This is my tenth GD covering it as media, and it's crazy to watch how much has grown and evolved over the years, and even just going to the women in gaming event that Microsoft puts on every year we wanted the rally out. Yeah. And so it's gotten so big. I remember going to it when it was just like this little luncheon. And I've really liked the luncheon to a really nice format where you've got to get to know just a small group of people at a table setting. But now at the rally like hundreds of female, developers all across the industry gets a really experience and they have the game changers program where they give scholarships to students and things like that. And it was really wonderful to see the lookout over that audience and see so many different types of women all different walks of the game industry, really kind of come together. I like to say that they're not all new. They've always been there right now, they're they're more visible, and they're showing that they're here. And that's right laugh is that they feel comfortable going. I make games, and hopefully even more people out there will continue to be comfortable making games because while we've made so many great strides still got a ways to go through steps to take. But looking towards the future. Let's get into our first news story, of course, news of the week that everybody is talking about Google stadia. So let's talk about this name, first and foremost, what do we think about Google calling their new streaming platforms? Stadia? I personally think it sounds like an ST or like a medicine Fornace. Yeah. Or some sort of disease or coffee sweetener as Megan to heard that. I didn't relate that to my favorite sweetener, but stevia is very good better than regular sugar. I the name stadium. They want people to relate to the fact that you know, massively multiplayer games will be running through their service. And that makes more sense. I didn't until earlier today during lunch you said was it you that? It's the plural of stadium. Right. Well, they did this really need intro video when they kicked off the announcement showing the history of humanity in the history of games and looking all the way back to like the Olympic Games are looking at sporting events games and then down to other types of competitive events. And obviously, you know fast forward to twenty nineteen we think about stadiums and east boards, and how so many people around the world kind of gathering these stadiums to watch other people play video games, and it's really been this crazy kind of Lucien thinking back to what the first Olympics was to what like a stadium at like elsia like the international is, right. It's really a neat. A on words. I don't know how I feel about it as like a platform name. But I think that's maybe more because what is this platform brushing work, some weird constantly out there. We were talking about like, the we for example. Yeah. Xbox lost things. We've made fun of when they're announced and then. Yeah. Except for the Bill. Nickname Xbox One sided. So if you don't know what we're talking about. Let me read a little bit of a break down here from gamespot dot com. So after months of rumors and speculation Google announced during the game developers. Keynote San Francisco rather than a council, they revealed stadia glob came glad claiming a cloud gaming platform that allows users to stream games to any device. The GDP twenty nineteen presentation showcase what it's capable of wells, the controller Google has designed for it. The first party developer, it's established and much more. So that controller that was leaked air quotes was wrong. Only in color the form factor in the button. Layout matched the bottoms weren't as square where they will. When you saw all of the different concept pieces of concept are looked pretty close the controller does look a little bit thicker than it did. And it was original pieces of concept art, but I mean, the kind of like really more angular knobs on each side. Still look the same people. Don't hate this controllers much. The truth. Yeah. Exactly. So we'll get to the controller and just as say a second. So city is built on the natural advantages of being a streaming platform, for example, Google showed a seamless switching between various devices, similar intendo switches different play modes also means that the games can be played at high fidelity, regardless of the device now I just going to add in aside. I don't agree with this analogy. I was in Lurton intense, which is different play. Modes is not is not bear comparison at all. And so let me continue. This means a game can be played at high fidelity goes to the device at launch. It will stream four K as sixty frames per second with sound HDR support and future. Google's plenty of AK resolution and frame rates upwards of one hundred twenty frames per seconds. We're talking about PC quality. Here says the actual rendering is being done through server farm, developers are encouraged to take advantage of the extra processing power. One tech demo showed real time. Destructible environments crackdown. Three another showed or multiplayer game. The feds show videos into a single player stream and two consumer facing. Features state share and crowd play are. Aimed at encouraging interaction between friends between streamers our audiences state shared let you create moments for friends or stream viewers to play from exactly the same moment in the game. Crab playlets streamers from Q you who can jump in and play a multiplayer game. With them though. The presentation was a stencil for a dedicated gaming platform. Hookah has not yet announced very many games. It's off whereas more distraught and did appear onstage to promise. Dumi? Turtle come to stadium in Q games. Dylan cut suggested he's working on a game built around the state share feature to kill works as lows lows lose-lose Sancho appeared on stage, but did not commit to a specific game. That was a really weird moment. Yeah. I was she was dressed really nicely. She looked alive. But I was like, so why did you come here? Is there something you're announcing or you just looking fly onstage. Former Ian studio and Ubisoft studio head Jade, Raymond is also heading up the newly-formed stadia games entertainment division, which will create first party games. The studio will also work with third party developers to use the technology UB as also likely on board. Having helped us project stream last year with assassin's creed odyssey and on you can play stadia through existing supported controllers. Google also releasing his own specialized stadium control of what we talked about. It has a few extra buttons such as the smart device detection, a share button Google system button Steiner note it also connects via wifi. So this is an important note to bring up because why doesn't have a history of being the most stable of wireless connections across the planet. I would say that bluetooth is in arguably a more stable connection than WI fi. But the reason why people are thinking it's exciting that it's wifi is instead of connecting directly to the hardware. You're going to be connected via wife directly to Google's network. And so your trollers hypothetically. Understanding this correctly communicating directly with Google servers versus a piece of hardware communicating. He's hardware. So that's why it's kind of like the. Yeah. So we don't quite know, exactly. How the text gonna work? This is very much. Just a, hey, we're here kind of announcement. But I think we all left with more questions than we began with. And then, of course, a roadmap. They haven't the whole year planned out where they will make the announcements that they need to make their billing information of to us. Yeah. Yeah. That was like the most notably absent was anything about pricing. And then the one thing that sort of irritated me a little as they're like, this is exactly how it works. And I was like, no. Because like even if you hit a join game button when you're watching streamer at some point, you would theoretically pay right like, so what's the user flow of me being like, oh, I don't have this game to now. I'm jumping in with said streamer. There's gotta be a pay point. Yes. I do believe you'll have to either by the game or. The game maker will have a demo some sort of demo that you can jump into subscription based thing, right? Yeah. There's there's so many unknowns. Like how you actually pay for this. But yeah. And that was my biggest complaint when I was tweeting during the reveal so Steiner, and I watched the announcement the keynote together, and I wanted to be clear, I think this is a super exciting technology. I don't think that this is something that is so revolutionary that we haven't seen before because this is a sensually what on live was hoping to do when they first came onto the market. Obviously, we got a little bit more bells and whistles because we had the YouTube integration who've got the livestream integration. And then of course, the part of it with Google assistant. But I'm a little still on the fence about how I feel about all that think on live made it work. No, the clearly didn't wrinkles gonna make it work. Well, they've got the leading. One was on life. How long ago was thought like eight years ago different time? But yeah, so I 'cause they also didn't talk about what the connection needed to be to make this work. So here's an article from Aegean, whereas Google stadium. The newly revealed game streaming service recommends a twenty five megabits per second. Internet connection to provide ten eighty p sixty frames per second game play the requirements for the service are detailed an interview with did. And they said we use less than that. But that's put a recommended limit. And then to get to when we launched we will be able to get four K, but only raise that band with about thirty megabits per second. That's a pretty intense internet speed with average speeds across the United States being fifteen to twenty megabits obviously, there are some areas that have better access like I'm one of the lucky few that has access to fiber here at the what's game studio in the bay area. So I can get a thousand megabits per second. That is an anomaly right same. Most people are paying for around ten to twenty megabits per second. I mean think about how much we travel. If you've been in an as many hotel wifi joins is I have like it's usually like to to five if you're looking real bet. But that just means you're not playing in four K. Right. You're playing you're playing at a lower recipes. The twenty five. So I mean, not every game is at ten eighty p for the most part if you're playing a video game you expect it to be attended p now. So I had tweeted, of course, Google was going to bring the goods when it comes to tack. Of course, they're going to support for k sixty France for second because who's launching a new gaming platform that doesn't right, but. Ten is doing their own thing. You can do is they want right? So I think intendo is a good example of how something like stadium could work by not necessarily going on trend. But I think where I'm concerned as an intendo has come from decades of established first party software in their first party softwares. What sells their hardware through and through every generation that Nintendo. See success is because people love Mario people love smash brothers people love Zelda. Right. And and so I think in Pok Mon right animal crossing exactly we could we keep going because they have such a amazing collection in the library of software. And that's what Google is missing. And obviously they've brought Jade on to head up the studio Meghan. What do you think about Jade and her position in what she can bring to the table for stadium? I mean, Jade Jade is a game maker. She started her curse. A programmer you just call it stadium. Sit stadia, oh, I thought you said stadium. Well, I mean the word as if I was mumbling. I apologize. A tip jar. Whenever one of us calls it by the wrong name or stadium that we put something in. That's all I'm saying so strict when for Andrea I said Sadia, it might have been mumbled. I wasn't paying attention. Okay. Thank you. Dog in this race? So J J is seasons game developer, and she has been wanting to make games her entire career. So she's going to take this and run with it and make everyone proud. I don't really know. What else to say? I don't know any. I didn't know she was going to Google until everyone else did. And I think that she's gonna do some pretty exciting stuff with your history. Knowing so many game makers and game developers. How long do you think is going to be with j just really coming into this role before something that she has really kind of pushed across the finish line is actually going to be playable. I mean, three years like a minimum. Yeah. Yeah. Three years. So it'll be interesting to see what Google does with their partners because if they are going to launch a sphere, which they said they are targeting twenty nineteen for launch. They clearly have to come at with third-party partnerships Steiner. Do you see particular developer or publisher that is more poised to want to work with Google? Google lots of money. Make your rain on everybody. I mean, they've also everyone working for them are seasoned game developers. Phil Harrison, John, Trenton, all these people buying the scenes are people that you've known for years. I mean, Jackie's, okay. Sure. That sounds right. You know, they have contacts they have, you know, they're they're not gonna have any problem. That's true. I've just heard some rumblings. Obviously we've been taking the opportunity to ask anybody in everybody around GD. So what do you think about stadia in a lot of people are rightly so very tight lipped about it. But we did just get to see developer that I've known for a while on time. He'll remain nameless. And we ask them, you know, is the game that we're seeing today is going to be coming to stadium because it's very common for us to be like which platforms, and then like, why aren't you thinking about switch usually? And then now it's like stadia question, Mark. And clearly the people who have something to hide are like we're not discussing it yet. But this one developer who is running a recently formed studios that we're interested. We just don't know what it is about like, I found out most of the about the platform like everybody else it, and he's like, you know, we're excited about the opportunity, but we can't develop for platform. We don't understand. I also think. So I'm like, okay. So stadium is a Zimmer platform it also is like sort of a game engine, or at least seemed like it was kind of a game engine. I was like, okay. And then it's also a party studio. And I was like all right. Maybe you should make these little different. But a lot of info it was a lot all in one conference. But I think the part I found most confusing was the game development part because I was like wait are you asking developers to now develop for a separate third platform that has different specs than any of the others. Like, none of XBox. Can't do these things PlayStation. Can't do these things studios. Technically, the only one who can do some of it. So like all those tariff law. So you're like now that that would be just an extra step for them. Try consider. And I don't know how much bigger studios are going to want to until they see that. There's a value. Absolutely. Yeah. I'm trying to think is this something I would be interested in and. It's hard to say because I think at this point. We just don't know enough. They how how are they going to get my money is like the number one question. Right. I don't even know my internet is at my house. I'm sure it's gonna have to rent something basic. I'm sure that's fine. But you know, I don't know if I'm ready to sacrifice a console for the convenience of this. I think that's the question. Am I ready to do that? Now that gets to a point where I can have all my games that easily. Maybe then I would think about because we travel all the time. And always switch right now is like a standalone piece of equipment hardware that can handle that. But when I'm on an airplane. He and I use gogo inflight to play. God. Right. That's definitely. So can't even stream net flicks. I just don't know. Yeah. I don't think this is something I think the interesting I was talking when I was talking to yesterday. But I think the interesting application here, obviously all depends on your internet speed where you live. But if you were a family that could not afford any of these other things, but like maybe someone in there. So. Wants to experience these triple gaming experiences. Stadia is tool that would allow for that. When you don't even need a nice computer at your house, you need just like a laptop of some kind, and you can have that experience. I think that is what's really cool about it. I don't know that's not incredibly pickle to any of us in this room because we all do have concert. We have all the cons. We've all the stuff, we're fine. But there are a lot of folks who don't now again like, maybe they also don't have the internet connection. They would even need to use this which is a separate issue. But. But does the lack of load times and load screens. And I'll is that an appeal to everybody does not make a difference. I mean again in theory, right? So we saw them on stage. Do this really slickly rehearse demo of them going from one platform to the next in picking up where left off, and we all know, it's not gonna work like that. I'm not trying to be Debbie Downer about it. Just it's not right. So you're gonna just going to be some kind of a log in somewhere, you're going to have to be playing it on your phone and people don't keep games open and running on their phone drain your battery. Crazy, right? So you'd have to open up the app, presumably log in and then you would have to probably get to some kind of secondary screen. I in theory, if it works, I think, it's really revolutionary. I just would need to see it in practice to actually get my panties in a twist likes to say that was not true. User experience. Obviously was was a true demo. It was just highly scripted for spray purpose. It could be the next disruptor game this change everyone else's business model. If you really don't need a console anymore than dairy. Yeah. It's gonna be interesting to see how the big three kind of pivot around this news. Right. So obviously XBox has something in the wings. That was probably going to be very similar to what Google is doing all we've heard from them so far. So hopefully that reveal is coming in sometime in the next couple of months, if not we'll know by three for sure I'd have to imagine. And then Nintendo obviously marching to their own drum. I highly doubt, they're even going to dip their toes and these waters because they can't even get voice chat. Inside the Nintendo switch you have to do a separate app. So the idea of doing something with cloud based server processing just seems completely too far gone for them. They're going to keep doing their own thing and keep selling in Japan. They did what was it a SaaS creed? Was it audit? See and resident evil seven they they're doubling. But I don't think it's become a full fledged strategy for them. So at least they're there. I love Nintendo, I loved it. I mean what you're gonna play on the plane your switch. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I think. Yeah. Like, you were saying, I think this is really cool. And I think it's really revolutionary. I think it's just look impracticality. How does this work right now when you don't have all these internet speeds? And I think, you know, this is something that someone's gonna have to start breaking ground on in order to kind of get it to there. And I think that's what's happening. It might not be totally perfect right now. But at least those steps are being made because like simul said, it's great. If you don't want to buy a four hundred dollar console. Yeah. Absolutely. I think PlayStation is really the one to watch here and how they're going to pivot because they don't have something that they've announced they're working on. But we do know that like PS five is coming probably pretty soon. We can maybe get an announcement this year, maybe it launches next year. Right until like, what are they gonna do to adapt because they're real dominance in this last generation has been there. Third party partnerships not to say that their first party stable hasn't been excellent, obviously, it has like they have it amazing collection of first party studios. Is that enough to carry people over to tell them they need to buy? Another box because you can't play God of war on Google stadia. Somebody asked me that in a tweet. And I was like no, of course, you can. It's a PlayStation, four exclusive. You can't play it on PC or XBox or switch. It's a you have to buy that box to play that game. And I think that's where PlayStations really going to have to double down going into the next generation to say if we're not going to we're not ready to explore a streaming platform. Obviously they have PlayStation now. But we all know how that's been going for them in a what do they have coming down the pipeline from their trusted studios to get people to reinvest in the hardware. I do wonder if they're there for a into PlayStation now makes them maybe less concerned about stadia if if they think to themselves well that didn't like the world on fire. Right. It's still exists. But no one's really talking about it anymore. I don't even know what how people use it. Anybody? I don't know anybody that uses position. Now, I feel like maybe that would give them. I don't know if it's a false sense of security, but it rob ably more. So than say XBox got eaten alive when they suggested anything remotely like this. Twenty seventeen PS and now had seventy million monthly active users. Wow, how are the and that was a year ago that was over a year ago almost two years ago almost two years ago? I wonder what I do wonder what they're qualified for that is though like someone who logs into what are they all motoring or are the download early streaming something anyway. So antics split pay modeled eating makes no sense here subscription for sure. And based on what I've heard that's the model that they're going to. I mean, obviously, I don't have any concrete information. This is all hearsay, but Google loves subscriptions. If you look at all of their other suites of services that they offer across tons of different verticals. It's all subscription based. Right. So it would make sense to me that if we're going to do a streaming platform that you're gonna have a streaming subscription. What do you think? Again, I don't know. Great question. Even some of the developers that we've talked to this week. Like don't know, you know, it seems to me that Google has very strategically picked a key partners that they're working with that are still like very much behind closed doors discussions. But now that the name is out. You know, the concept is out. We're going to start getting a drip feed of info, totally. I do wonder what you would need. I guess XBox game pass a sort of doing that. Like, what price point would you need in order to make it reasonable to release. I like AAA games day one versus a places you now it's kind of like as older stuff typically threats. I'm wondering because if I can only if I'm paying I don't know like even net flicks amount, which is what fifteen bucks a month. But you're giving every not every probably like a decent chunk of all third party. Game releases day one that's going to be crazy to pass up. I mean, yeah, I just think it's completely implausible. I think the idea that a developer like activision who sells twenty five million plus units of call of duty a year would give up that money that they get from selling it at sixty dollars. Yeah. I mean, they're never going to go for subscription model. Why would they need to? Yeah. I'm not completely sold on the subscription model. I'm not I don't I I don't like guessing on these things. I really want to hear them hear what they have to say. But I think you can have a say they technically do Bo have sort of PlayStation now curated experience that subscription, and then just also release games that you can purchase the license to obviously, it's kind of like digital games. Now, maybe it's like an EA access style where you get like a certain amount of hours of early access, and then you have to buy the full. Game. But you get it at a discount. Right. So like you get like ten hours to play the game. And try it out and stream it as part of your subscription. And then you get like ten to twenty percent discount when you buy the full, right? You that could be something. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, obviously, this is just all speculating, and hopefully, we'll have more news. It's fun to speculate because this is such charter territory for the industry. So it's fun to see what could happen at this goes on totally injured it, it's just this is probably the one company that can do it execute. Yeah. And then working on it for a long time. Right. Well, we have so much more GDP news to get to. Let's keep on a roll in. I'm going to kind of go through these next few stories pretty quickly since we do need to get back up to the conference. So we can't have a super long show this week. See these anniversary update celebrates the start of year two on April thirtieth. Wow. It's crazy to think that it's been a full year now and see if these launch we were so looking forward to this game. And they had a rough go they've really turned it around in these twelve months since launch the one I'm interested it. Okay. So that's up from XBox dot com. Would you like to go over? Sure. So the anniversary update I'm not gonna sing song. This is a game changer that take Steve's to a whole new level packed full of new content. That's guaranteed to have something for everyone. Tune into a series of live streams that will share more details behind these things. So on Wednesday, April ten well. Yes, I can read numbers. They're having an anniversary. View of the arena, which is basically an only competitive mo- that will let you and your friends test yourselves against other crew of other cruise in a fun and fast paced mashes to amass the most loot so like PB ish. No, thank you. I think is a thing. Everybody say, that's fine. Not vietnamese. These. April sixteenth. They will be talking about the hunters call which is a new trading company that gives you more ways to play and progress towards pirate legend, so you'll find out more about what you can do the company behind it and they're awards on offer. And then the one I'm actually interested in is on Tuesday. Those stream is on Tuesday, April twenty third and that is a preview of tall tales shores of gold. So this is like you've never seen it before tall tales or collection of story. Rich quests that are played out in our shared world and can be fully experienced by yourself or with your crew. Trying to kill me though. Don't know yet. That's a little language versus collection. Shores of gold invites you to embark on an epic adventure of love honor betrayal in search of the mythical shores of gold. Yeah. So it's not really clear if people can still mess, obviously, it says you are still in the shared world. But it is more of a story focused quest line, which I'm interested, then they have a whole bunch of other stuff like to support the community for any. Who's playing over the past year new mercenary voyages? Let's see if you've attained pirate legend status during your one. You get a golden tanker golden things which fun and shiny and. There's a whole bunch of different stuff that you'll get. So if you've been playing see of the courage to go check out their post on XBox news. Yeah. That's exciting. And that I feel like it was just yesterday. But it was around this time last year that we were talking about CFE's with cau- remember. Yeah. With police Adam as not home, I love that guy. Yeah. He's the best. He's on vacation right now with him. So we call him. Aw. We were just talking about how we just wanna more content. We knew as time went on. You would get that content. And I'm really set about this summer shorts of sounds fun. I just hope I can't be killed by you place. These I have not played Soka. Don't it's bad. As maybe we've I don't know we need to jump in and like test the waters, literally. Yes. Yeah. It's been a quite some time since we've jumped in and really explored see how the has changed. I know that server populations. They've reconfigured quite a few times and really balanced them. And they've added tons of our content and the game world tunes to be all around working more smoothly. As it tends to go with a game service, usually six to twelve months after launch is the prime time to play. We will check it out report back next up epic game store exclusive metro exodus out sells previous game on steam at launch. So Britney you want to take this one this from polling on okay won't either? Game source off to a promise e start. Steve Allison, head of the EPA game store shirts. Download in sales data during a presentation at the two thousand eighteen game developers conference noting that users downloaded the free games. Sub Nautica in slime rancher four and a half million times in two weeks. But the real news comes from the launch of metro exodus and epic games. Exclusive metro exodus has sold two and a half time yet to and a half times. More copies on the epic game sore then metro last light sold in the same amount of time on seem this proves according to Allison that quote, it's really about your game and not so much about the store. You sell it on not only are the sales larger but metro publisher deep silver will keep more of the revenue. The game store takes twelve percent of the revenue from game sales. While seem takes thirty percent of the revenue for the first ten million in sales after which evolves. Cut drops who twenty five percent. And then down further to twenty percent after fifty million sales metro exodus also runs on the unreal engine four, which means that the engine licensing fees will come out of. Epochs percent cut instead of being added on top of seams thirty percent revenue share. That's really great news before that's wonderful. Yeah. People we're gonna boycott at this game. We're not going to buy it in the look what happened. I think it's probably just people typing Google like how where do I get it? And then they just there's one place. Why were they in a boycott? It was originally was listed on steam and then for a and deep silver pulled it off of steam. Yeah. And then expanded the exclusive deal with egg to put it on the game store makes happy. I think this is cool. I guess I guess there's a few as look at this. It makes me happy because all the people who are done voting the game on seems oh it's going to because his epoch store. Exclusive? Like, I'm laughing in your face right now. Because that's not what you do two games. But have you bombing a stupid? Yeah. But at the same time, you know, there should be games. You should be able to access games where he want feel like, but this is all business DeLeon. So I don't know how to feel about this. I'm happy for the teams involved. They're making money. Good for them. The game store deal is just too good for most of to pass up. Especially some of those like what Paul AA developers like they need all of the profit. They can get so seems going to take that giant. So what are the game? Let's slime rancher getting out of it with the free game. Four point five million. I'm guessing that much like PlayStations subsidizes PlayStation, plus free game. I'm guessing that epic is subsidizing free downloads in some way, right. Like, they're giving them a percentage or some kind of royalty deal right on the back hope so. Yeah, I'm not sure. Like, obviously what that deal looks like. But clearly when XBox live same thing, they're going to offer something free with gold. They give the developer a fee for each copy. That's downloaded what the structure of those deals question. But I've never negotiated one of those nursing one also good because what would make perfect story would be seems like, okay. Maybe our cuts are a little crazy. Maybe we need to lower those. It's not enough. One example is not enough. It's not, but it's good step in the right direction. Yeah. And this is also the first I think high profile game. That was exclusively on epic game store, and we're going to be seeing more and more of those in the years ago. Eeking uhf. The newest get that the EPA game source would Quanta dream Ubisoft lead next wave of epic game store. Exclusives. So for at ars Technica. They right at gamed at the game developers conference presentation epic announced number of new titles becoming exclusively to epochs game store platform in the coming months chief among the acquisitions for the store. Our selection of games. Quantum dream, former PlayStation exclusives. Heavy rain beyond to souls in Detroit, become human. We'll be coming to PC. Only via the EPA game store. Epoch said quantum dream announced. Back in January that it would start considering platforms beyond the PlayStation causal family after an investment from Chinese gaming giant net ease now, they are becoming a big player. The video game space epic also announced it is extending its partnership with Ubisoft saw the division two's, recent exclusive release than epochs platform. Several major PC releases from Ubisoft will come to the EPA game store. According to the announcement. But details what those titles are. We'll have to wait us. Also, be added some additional back catalogue titles, including there's nothing. They're not listening not nothing which is a new free title every two weeks. So this is a huge gate. I did not think that Detroit come human would come to PC so quickly. Yeah. Hasn't even been a year since launch yet. When you got that big money from net, easy anything's possible. Big. I thought that PlayStation wouldn't release it from the platform this soon. Yeah. Heavy rain, of course, it's been out forever. Right. Now, even be onto souls, like sure that's fine. But I mean, Detroit become human did really well for them. And it's like, I said isn't even that old. So that's exciting. This is a good good. But then again, epoch implosion have had a really there buddy deep relationship for quite some time. Yeah. Yeah. This is exciting that those games will actually come to PC. So if yeah, if you were always people who doesn't have a PlayStation, you're now, you're not gonna get every PlayStation exclusive. But you can have these heavy rain actions. Sean Jason action. I'm all about that Conard Hank action. I think heavy rain has awkward bromance scenes ever. You don't like the shower sexy? It wasn't the way. No different. That was beyond those it. No, no, no. I'm trying to reach behind unclasping the Braga. Yeah. In the kissing. There's a long time. Kissing. Right. Visit still messed up and video games. Yeah. Because they can't quite that. When you smashed up, Dan. How often do you smash stuff animals? No comment. Putting on Bland's? Well, that is exciting news. Of course. There's even more exciting news Steiner. Yeah. Nintendo was here at GD this week, and they revealed some Indies so they were eighteen games highlighted in the March twenty Nintendo switch nitny showcase. So let's see what the headlines pretty much. What it is the games come into many of these have confirmed or vague imminent release dates, and there are a few that were least today, but I'm only gonna highlight a few of these the ones that I personally thought we're pretty cool never would Cup. Head firm that the formerly Xbox One console exclusive Cup. Head is coming to attend to switch. No mention was made of heads upcoming deal C which players can now get a taste of the beautifully animated bullet hell shooter during bullet hill Cup. Cup which on April eighteenth. Then rat a new game from double fine and published by BanDai Namco route is separate leased this summer players will take on a character with an ability to mutate themselves taking on the lightness and abilities of other creatures like a snake who can reach out and snap. But it's. That's not what I think sounds like. Than stranger things things. The game is also confirmed for synchronous released with the third season of the hit Netflix series on July fourth. It will include kgo local coop playable characters. And we'll dive into the story of Thurs. I was watching this drying my hair today and the hairdryer was going on. But I was watching the stranger things footage. I don't know anything strangers things. But I think coop could be fun to like this game because it's like old pick Slee into. Yeah. So we saw the brothers announced this at the game awards, right? And at the time not gonna live did not blow my skirt up, but not very excited about what I saw sea undefeated splitter benefit, and then the one that I think Britney probably like did a little dance when she saw she's still. Rule. The crypt of the neck road. Answer franchise is back with Zelda inspired adventure adapting the former them based explosion and the letters, which is Mason. Yes, I'm here for that ever played a trip to the Necker dancer. I will now I've played a little bit of it. But I need to go back and play the whole thing. So I knew they were going to end with something, and I'm like, oh, the Necker dancer, maybe more content. I have no idea. And then I saw Lincoln Zoll, then go your really lot in my hotel. That was probably obnoxious. How it looks cool. Now. I definitely have to play it. I'm bluffing. All this. All this stuff. Forget in. We're getting this leaks waking oh, I'm still waiting for animal crosses. Pendo if you're listening. Three baby girl eastern. I thought the red trailer was really funny that was pretty Hillary. Now, the red lanterns the one about the. Maybe I'll read through the list of other titles that have not been. I didn't highlight just I'm gonna say their name. So blessed your masters era to swim sandy nuclear thrown. Blam beer, arcade. Secrete box Hein blood roots creature in the I think it's the Waller. The will I may have missed type that I'm not sure Qatada zero dark would the Red Lantern Neo cab, my friend, Pedro and overland. So which you were talking about the Ridley add this is the one where you are. I did or autism. How you say it how you did around. I said it, right? Yeah. And it looks like from the gist of what I got is that you are trying to have a fresh start you screwed something up in your pass. And you're like, okay. This is what I'm going to do with my life. I'm going to become a sled dog absence. Ter-? Yes. That's what everyone wants to do their life. Right. And yeah, no, I do and it sounds like it's rogue like in the sense that you have a whole bunch of different scenarios that present themselves as your mush in your puppies. And they showed one instance where they're being attacked by bears and the bear like knocks the dog off. Like. And I was like why would you show that? But it goes to show you like some Schick and go down during this. So I'm kind of interested in that you get a bond with your puppies and pet him and just say bear. No, this is what? I need you with me in the back of my back. Come back. The birther knife. When it comes to the way, you can prevent the bear from dog. Yeah. I don't know she saying real life. I'd be in the back of her. Yes. If I there you can go after it with a knife because you're really good. You know, the knife's a little close convents. They may have earned eaten the dog where that point. I'll just go with the regular gun for this. I'll take it. Yeah. Rifles the way to preventing bears from eating the dogs. Yeah. If you wanna see any of this game play. I mean intendo has trailers for all of this stuff from indie presentation from GTC this week. So you can check that out. I'm really just going to skim over these next two because we gotta get to the next segment. Apex? Allegience finally had their battle pass come out there today with new character and toe. Cool if you're into apex? Anthem sales open strong in the US the second biggest by where release ever for the first month? NPD group has released US sales report for February revealing the best are are are you? Oh, gosh. No, I'm not.

Only behind two thousand two's massive through those twelve two thousand twelve that's the number there. It is now twenty nine hundred second bestselling game trailing only behind kingdom hearts three one caveat dimension with anthem is that digital sales are not included in publisher latronic arts has not shared any hard sales data for anthem. Now that's interesting because people got to play anthem I on origin access for. So I would be very curious to know, how many people actually bought the PC digital sales because it might push them even higher into the sales stratosphere for q. A one twenty nineteen. But let's be honest Q one games. Never go on to sell the most for the year. Sorry coupon games. It's just the way. It is the only one that might book that trend is the division too.

All right. So let's talk about what we've been playing GTC twenty nine teen one of the most fun things that I've played so far this week, Meghan. You've actually been playing as well, but just on a different platform beat sabre feed saver, I feel like it's a workout. It's the only work. I get these days, and it makes me feel just like really good at games. Make you feel like powerful. Yes. Yes. I love it. And I teach the people to play harder. Those blocks you bring that up because I finally got to meet the team the two guys who who make beat sabre. And when I played it at the Oculus events of Brittany, and I were invited by Facebook on Oculus to come play some of the new demos on the rift s and the rift quest. And so I got to play beat saber on the rift quest without any of the wires my fantasy. It was amazing. It was so liberating because you can move around and not have to worry about the being tethered from your head. And I was it was so funny because the Jeff keely played the demo right before I did. And so, of course, you know, I said hi gave him a hard time a little bit. I said what your score? I gotta go get in there. And I crushed his one hundred twenty percents sixty nine thousand. Yeah. It wasn't his was twenty. Super animated. Yes. No. I can't. Yeah. I think he watch too. I just got into it. Let's go. I was playing Katie Popstars house like let's go, and then I put it on expert and got CRA. Yeah. It was very difficult. So I do love beat saver. Obviously. I've talked many times about rhythm music games on this show and playing it inside the quest is super cool. So I can't wait. Yes. They said they said what's spring twenty nineteen? We got the press release from Oculus three hundred ninety nine dollars. It's going to be and I believe beat sabre is one of the launch titles. Let me look here. Request requests. Yeah. I believe it is launch title. Yep. And announced very many lunch titles for a quest. They have not at all. And I tried to get some more details from them. They said that all of the tracks. That are currently available in beat saber will be available in the quest version. And I said, so what are you add in there like TVD? So I think they know that they just weren't revealing anything I saw them at the event, but it was really fun and Britney. You also got to play something the life. I love day. Yes. So I played a game called journey. The gods. And this game is visitor rocks new game. And I try find the gist of it. Here we go so tune rock if you guys up there listening to watch don't know are, of course, the developers of the famous left for dead franchise back for blood. And now they have their news ambi- game that they've announced as well. Okay. So here's the description on their YouTube fight as human Gado like an epic quest to rid the land of evil, moon beasts and stop the impending apocalypse. I don't know why something. Wound. Primordial landscape gaining allies and unlocking powers the black moon draws Occlusive coming to occupy this quest in rift this spring, so I hopped because who was a lovely woman. We were talking to Vanessa an Esa, and she's like kind that she's she knows I like those like kind of the light. But not one hundred percent because I know people don't like their games all because then you're kind of sit into for failure. Because it never goes. Well, but within like five minutes, I'm holding a sword. I'm having a shield, I have a bow. And I had this little like Amy from Reichenbach around. I wanted to know court. So it was wonderful. And I mean, the controls are really basic, you know, if you have your shield if you just kinda like put your hand like this because you're is in the touch controls, and then you have your sword, and you can like shake that around and got the stops. And things they you switch to a boat that you push a on the on the touch controller, and then it pulls out your crossbow. And then we crossbow across both star. Yeah. Who I think it's? Yeah. And then you reach out with your hand you pull back lever arrow in there. Yeah. And then you just aim and you push one of the triggers, and then it just shoot. So. Yeah. I'm gonna venture now. So I haven't had richer. Let's get the moon beat this, dude. Beast. So they start you off and you open like Tampa. Like, you know, you have this little area. There's different by. I think she was telling me and Chloe from rock was one who spoke to and the first thing it is got to go like walk down this grassy hill. I mean, it's very pass dilly and looks kind of cartoonish, obviously, not like Oculus s freight, which is all rift s. Yeah, we'll on the second. So it's not like, very high definition realistic looking environment. But still it's it's really cool. And so I got to walk down this hill. I'm this big open field and smacks bushes with my sword. And I'm like, oh, this is so cool. And then I was walking. And I use the snap controls say how do you walk in this game the analog on your left, and then I like to do the snap. I can't just tell a port. Yeah. I need to teleport same. Oh, yes. I like would throw me off more ex. You'd be surprised I have found if you use traditional stick controls with Cameron move. You went on a controller. I get really Whoo. Walking straight and back fluidly. But when I turn I have to use them helps actually. And so I'm like walking around looking this is cool the school and all of a sudden this huge beasts thing with three is in the middle moon beast. Yes, the moonbeams pops up, and it was really cool moment. This is going to sound for Matic. But I think it's one of those moments. Probably never forget. Because for the first time, I had actually look up at this monster that I'm defeating and we've played a lot of RPG's, you know, where these huge beat mood based come out of the ground. It's like holy crap adventure heroes always so small compared to some of these things. But as a person, I actually got sensation. Like, this is what it's like because I had perspective. It was so cool, and I have like backup wafers eyeball to show, and then I would like shoot my aero at it. And then these other little things with spun around it and you'd have to kill those. And what's it gonna find one? So I had to run around him and like black it with my sword a dodge button or something now. Oh, I think that'd be really probably dizzy, no it would. But I'm just like, I'm thinking those battles. You've gotta move around. A little limited in that sense. But that would be awesome. So defeated the moon beasts, and that was pretty cool. But the other part of this game that you are a God of sorts, and what happens you go into God mode by pushing two buttons on the touch controllers, and then all of us, Neva bird's eye view, and you look down at your hands. He's cool like demon clause. Like, wait. What year demon demon? God, I'm not sure what kind of God you fight as a human in on those guts hands. Look like, I should be honest. Got it is manic point. And what you can do is. This is what I was doing when I was fighting the moon beast is I would you can grab trees out of the ground and pull them up. And now, they're your cover because then you go out of God God mode, and now you're back to your little human form. And the trees pulled up are now toll and they provide cover for you. And at the end of that you can't like throw the trees up monster. You, you know, I don't know because you can get really cool abilities. Like, I got to grab lightening sky. And then throw it. Use. I am Zeus. That's amazing. And God you get to grab lightning Bolton's like Chuck him at the enemies on the ground. That was really cool. Choose somebody. There's also other abilities like fight, you can grab fire and or spree pliers. Something like that. There's a whole bunch of other stuff you can do in this game. And this was it was really fun and ran really well. And I think this is a perfect game for the west. And I just wanted to more movies in. I love you are I love you. I have a lot of very good friends. She made traditional video games who VR and don't think it's the future, and it's not going anywhere. But you just listen to Brittany talk about how shall never forget this moment in right again. And you're like, no, actually that is a moment that this is something that's important to people. And I love those moments. You only experienced that. In. Yeah. In the headset, and I have been VR skeptic because I think some of the coolest VR development, the top is actually not in video games. It's in other verticals outside of gaming, we're getting better and better each year as as the teams out there have more time with the tech and are becoming more comfortable with it. And I think that leads me perfectly into the next thing. I want to talk about which is insomniac games storm land. So it's on now is made four titles for VR, which is incredible. That a single studio has made for games virtual reality considering how young the ticket and magically they have a magic leap came to. Yeah. Absolutely. So magically for people who aren't familiar is an augmented reality, well, sort of an augmented reality headset. Yeah. So it puts things in the real world yet we have one here at the studio that magically sent us to test out. I played the angry birds game too. Yeah. I don't know what the last time. You put magically bone leap. Dice. But they had the weta workshop came the doctor G O never saw that one really fun robots come out of the walls. And you've oh that sounds that sounds really cool fun. So I was a little hesitant to do such a long demo in the roof because I have found when I'm envy are for too long. I start to get like pretty like nauseous, so, but this was with the new Oculus rift s so GD see is happening as we've mentioned and so obvious put out all of these new details about the rift, which is from their press release. It says it's a new VR headset. The combines the convenience of built an Oculus inside track and technology with the full power of your PC built on the riff platform rift s it gives gamers and tech enthusiasts access to the most immersive content that VR has to offer and it's launching spring twenty nineteen for three hundred ninety nine USD the rift s replaces the original rift with an upgrade to a higher resolution display improved optics and. Feature called passthrough, plus which gives you a glimpse of the real world around you without ever taking off the headset, which is a really cool idea. So this is a sensually like the highest resolution VR that Oculus has ever created. Now how it's going to stack up against what vibe is doing. I don't know you probably want to go to somebody like digital foundry for those specifics if you are super into tech data, but I got to play storm land from insomniac in it, and it was the most crisp picture in VR ever seen. Really? It was like unbelievable. I've never seen VR. Look this beautiful and you play as an Android you essentially have a robot body armor. Yes. So that's very key. And I got to play in a demo where they showed us some basic movement. So you know, you can do a wheel guns you can fly as an Android, which is pretty cool. I put your arms out like this. And you can kind of like fly up and down which was really neat and then you can climb. So I did a climbing sequence where I was like moving my hands down and climbing up wall. It was really neat. I mean, we would just like dip our toes in the water with this game because the just the intro to the control scheme for so long. But really looks beautiful. I'm excited to see more from them. I think they said just twenty nineteen didn't have a specific Dane. Yeah. For for storm land in the rift s unless it was a launch title. So let's call about sternly into that. It's going to have co op multiplayer, and so you can you can play around in these different by that they have and they plan to support every week with new content. They plan to it's not procedurally generated, but they're going to be going in and adding new stuff every week. So it's almost like a games a service yard, which is something. We haven't really seen in the space before. So no motion. Sickness when you did this climbing and the phone and they're a longtime. Yeah. I won the. I think the higher resolution makes such a difference because we talk about frame rates when you're looking at it on your TV, your brain is processing different than when you're in VR. And so if you have an unauthorized build or something that's pushing a lower frame rate. You're going to have more tendencies to get motion sickness those VR moments here. Oh, yeah. We're here. Corner. Oh, yeah. Isn't trying to really impressive because I was watching Andrea play. And I'm like what she's seeing on the TV, and I was talking with a Tim soul Selvi. So I can't remember I'm sorry, dude. S eight. That before he helped me with newer and feral rates with anyway. And I told them my God that looks really good. He's like it looks even better the headset. Don't no way. But then you said it did. And I don't think ever seen a VR. And that looked good before feeling v are always is just like a tiny bit fuzzy. And it was interesting because the only other game that I didn't get any of that with it looks. So Chris was actually astronaut another one the game playing against yet. Yep. Yeah. No. I find myself readjusting my headset constantly to fix the fuzz. So I'm waiting for that to go away. But I work through the fuzz. Yeah. Well, the way that they've redesigned the headset because previously I thought the rift headset was incredibly uncomfortable, and I could not wear it. Because I would put it on for ten minutes and get these crazy lines on my face because I have a relatively small head. And so in order for me to get the headset to sit properly on my face. I don't get the fuzz I had to really clamp it down. But the new heads that has a knob in the back and the. The mask around the face. It's similar, but it's actually even more like the way that it works is smoother. So I put the headset on my face. And then all I did was literally twisted like one like half twist, and it was instantly in place. And that's it. I dunno gusting. It do anything else where does the weeks it? So the wait sit still on the front of your face the way that they've done that the strap adjustments over the top of your head is that something about the way that they're distributing the weight across the cage on your head is different enough to the point where it didn't feel like my head was being dragged down by the weight on the front of it. So they really did something that they're some kind of wizardry that made it a lot more comfortable to where for an extended period of till they have to because no one can really stain VR for more than a half an hour with get hot. You get sweaty. You get sore Z. So they have that something they have to solve. That's like I've never received a really been into be are. And that's one of the reasons. Why I don't wanna to face. Yeah. I'm kind of waiting for that day when eventually it's like glasses or something. Whereas a little bit less intense than putting this yet. Like, the are right something that's a little bit lighter weight. Makes pass through so incredible. On the new s is that that's something. I want to be able to see without taking my headset off. Yeah. Or like having pull it off your face, like check your phone or whatever. They'll move. But I was really impressed by everything that I saw that demo is it still for me, probably not, you know, for all these reasons, but I really like you what I've seen in. I think it's really inspiring where the tech is going and seeing what studios like insomniac are doing what? Turtle rock are doing and other people who are making really cool stuff for VR. So I think it's only gonna get better. I agree. Right. And raccoon city. No thank me the moon both past the moon. Be. All right. Let's talk quickly about some of the other things that we have been playing. So we also got to go to the ide- at XBox event in Steiner's pointing to age I saw. Aw bird. Yes. We saw at the mix which we can talk about just a second at the idea XBox event, which has been going on. Now, I think for four or five years, I still remember when they announced that pro to so, and it's been really fun to see all of these games that we probably would have overlooked if XBox hadn't highlighted them. So one of the fun ones that Britney I got to play was after party. Oh, yeah. So you I think I have some notes here amazing notes left my notebook and my hotel room. We're amazing where I was rest me. I was an April student homework. Ticker everywhere. So this is from night school studio. Yes. So this is from the people who made oxen free if you guys ever played that game. Yeah. Oxford's fantastic. If you've never tried it highly recommend and after party we were intrigued right away because it's tagline Britney. What is it party your way out of hell? So essentially, you have to drink your way out of hell it a drinking contest with Satan himself, though, you have a big win to Georgia. But. The demo. We played Andrew played. I took my amazing notes that I don't have was forty five minutes into the game and your cast of characters and you die. And now, you're in hell, and you're like, okay. This is kind of cool. But like really we want to get out of here. And turns out there is one way to escape hell out of Ayton who is voiced by Dave annoying. Really always so wonderful and Lola one of the two main characters. So it's Milo and Lola is voiced by a geniune von car, which was like, I recognized her voice. Birches in there too. I think. Lineup of voice actor so. Yeah. In order to get out of hell, you have to out drink out party Satan. And so how this game works. Like Andrea could I'm going to be professional. To become like cool enough to go talk to him and actually like because every night he throws a raider. And then Raver brazier trivia, and you have other. I'm so stupid. So then you have here not stupid and seeing it with love. Anyway. So you'd get drinks at the bar, and there's a bunch of different bars. I think they said seven different bars and each drink. You have makes your personality different in the sense that it'll have obviously like drink tequila. Maybe you happy you drink whisky, become even weirder. Like, I do anyway gives you different dialogue options, and those options can impact the decisions you make in the way, you interact with people around you. Yeah. I'm just really excited. I'm ready to play right now. Let's play this Louis up. Your alley vulgar, like the names of the drinks like bloody stool and like stupid stuff. Let's grow. Descriptions of the drinks are also very disgusting. And we asked the team from night school. Who is who were there who you guys tried to make these in the real world, we tried did not go very well. And I said challenge accepted. I was just laughing the whole time because is funny, and there's a lot of swearing. It's really funny humor potty humor that I love and the dialogue is really well done. So it's essentially like like a narrative adventure game where you have these interactions with characters, and you have dialog trees. So you get to pick, you know. And then if let's say, it's a binary choice in a few had a special drink can give you a tertiary choice. That's unique to the drink that you've you've drank during will only run. Let's go. You super aggressive. I did. So I just wanted to fight everybody all the dialogue options that came up on this. It was I can't remember it was like a bull. Something like shot BUSTER shot or something and the bull. You get the home. Yeah. Yeah. And they're playing beer pong. Right. And so the the demo that we played you have to get upstairs to this section of the party in order to do to make it past a bouncer with the bouncer doesn't have your name on his list. And so you have to go find the guy who's running the party and impress him enough. So that he put your name on the list. So it's actually you have to go through a bunch of Satan's like latkes and henchmen before you get the opportunity to actually talk to Satan NFL fright. So he's got these like underlings that you have to impress. And so the first demo that we played was and order to impress this guy. He challenged us one of his friends challenges to a game of beer pong. And so, of course, I was like beer pong. I got this. But the more you drink the drunk or you get and the more difficult. It is to sink the. Exactly. Yeah. It was really good. Yeah. So Superfund, I think this is going to be a winner for sure the cast of characters looks amazing. They said, you know, the difference a big difference between this oxygen free is that option for hit a pretty small cast. And this has a very large cast. Right. So a lot of different types of characters the lots of demons, lots of monsters typical things you would find in hell lots of jokes about like. Yeah. Hell sucks. Of course. It does it's hell as opposed to. And they would also saying that held takes obviously millions of years people but going to hell, right. And so they said you're going to find a light cast of characters people who've been there for so long. I think it's going to be really funny game. I think it's gonna win. Yeah. All right. The only thing I know this was an XBox them. But I'm like I wanna play the switch. They told us let me check my eventually much. I know. I write this down. I thought I asked him if this was an XBox exclusive than I think they said, no, yeah. Let me Hello after partying hardy game so night school. That's an LA studio. I think right. I believe so oxen free developers next project after party has been front. And that broke June of twenty teen coming what is just says twenty nine. And when we asked them, they said twenty nineteen we'll know when we know I appreciate that more than a date that gets Bush, so yeah, that's agreed suite nine months spine. Yeah. To make nineteen. Yeah. I'd like just exactly nine meals. We also should talk about, hyper dot. Yeah. Of course. So this is glitches not the developer. Yes. Okay. Yeah. And it's just one guy. I was talking to him. His name is Charles mcgrigor. And this has been his game. He's been working on for three years now. And it's coming out just twenty question. Mark. A lot of the games. We saw at the showcase where like sometime this year this year. So and walking around at the event and have name here, you have it. Ever ever believe Eva who was helping him out? She came up was like, hey, I like the show basically, thirty seconds of your time show, you the school game, like thirty seconds, of course. And then of course, it turned into like fifteen minutes because I got super competitive a lot of fun with it. I know I'm the worst. So what's interesting about hyper dot is kind of like a bullet. Hell. But not so essentially, it's like a co competitive bullet hell where there's these different arenas. So the first arena we were in kind of reminded me of Petri dish, the arena was circular, and you all have these little dots on screen that you control and the goal is to just and britney's Paula video here the goal is to just essentially not touch all of the things coming across. Audits like very much just shape some beats if you guys opposite because you're not firing anything. Yeah. Very traditional bullet. Hell register don't let the things on the screen hit you or your debt, and then they're really bad that. Yeah, they have we'll game modes, and so they had modes where you collect things they have MOS were like Britney has onscreen right now where you have to stay inside of a hill smaller circle inside the arena, and then they have modes where like your player icon is really big. And so it makes it more difficult to navigate around and then you can take a couple of hits. And then there's some modes where you can only take one hit. There's it's for one to four players. They have a campaign with over one hundred levels. And what I was really impressed by how quickly it loads when you die because this is that kind of game where you need an instant retry. And it delivers like you died, and it's like, you're right back in their instantly trying again and the really simple graphic style. Makes it. Easy to see even though those little Pentagon's when they come across the screen. They can move faster than the other ones, which I didn't realize why they kept screwing up my life. But fun. Fun. You said just pick up and play. It'd be something fun to play on one of our after hours dream, right? Just you pick up you play you die he playing, and it's never it's not competing with each other. I mean, you are but you're not trying to actually kill it. Well, I guess you can move each other's little dots around. Yeah. There's definitely this is definitely a competition game. But it's not like. Should not put this. No one. Kind of game where you get mad at the other person if they win. Remember what just happened over the weekend? She friendships almost get ruined these you know, what happens sometimes when we play slightly competitive. Yes. Do really fun party games. They're up on the TV. And I'm really impressed. And I hope it does. Really well because Charles a great person. He was really nice even though he conveniently one a lot of playing against us. I was like maybe you should be sitting out player three because he was player three and player. Three always kept winning. And I was like, of course, you're winning at your game. You stop playing. Just let lose against each other folks that idea XBox to a really amazing job of finding these crazy wacky games that you might not find anywhere else. This one guy. Yeah game. Yeah. Exactly. Really fun. It's been it's been really awesome seen the the growth of that program. And how XBox and PlayStation, Nintendo, you're talking about Indies have really supported independent publishers. And really just love finding gems he would never ever otherwise, probably fine. Because discover abilities still such a huge issue for Indies in the space. But Brit also, of course, if you follow me on Twitter, you saw that she found the scaring game at the show ks scary games. What I love scary VR is my favorite thing. You are monsters. Friends. Let me find ended here over chains. Okay. Changes the scary, silver chained? Yeah. From head up games interacts first-person horror game with a strong emphasis on story exploration. Search for clues with an old abandoned manner to enroll the truth about the terrible events which have happened here. So cute three twenty eight to leave the house. So yeah. So of course. So I just turn around and walk. So I think any press releases for this game for a while. And I just haven't had the chance to check it out. And I thought there, and I waited and I was like I'm going to complete this game. So so what's good about this? Because I also have that same thing where it's like this. This is real life. You would turn around and get the hot here. Right. So apparently, I don't know what happened the demo starts you crashed into a tree. I'm not sure what way you crush into tree. But you did. And you're all hurt your limping toward this abandoned mansion manner way up yonder, and you get in there. And there's a naive thing. Like, oh hope someone here can help me you get in your exploring. Clearly, there's no one there you see a ghost and the main characters like there's golsen here. I gotta get out of here. Thank you, a real reaction real reaction. And of course, it's not that easy to get back because now door for loss or okay. Yup. Things have changed behind you. Basically kind of reminds me of I don't know 'cause I layers if yours the first thing that comes to mind except for in this game. You actually have to hide things. We'll chase you and try to a little bit about. Last layers fear esque, and what I really like about this is that there is the emphasis on explosion. You're going around your finding pieces of paper like you learned some shit really went down in this house. And now, the parents there's evil spirits that wanna kill you sounds about. Right. And there's light puzzle elements. You have to find he's locks in one room you find four pieces of picture and put together and then that unlocks the door. So I'm playing this. I'll make this isn't to'skin. Granted, you know, the headphones were kind of quiet because that room was so loud that I couldn't get all of the sense of. What was it sounds, right? And that's really what kind of makes breaks of Oregon slender. We know that. Scary. We're like you headphones on the headphones, and you're going around you see like the back of a ghost. And you're like, okay. Like, that's creepy. But not the scariest thing I've seen in a game was ever. Then like a little piece of paper it slid underneath the door and says compla- or play with me when I went around. That's what. That's what. Taking this is getting real. And then maybe about three quarters away through the demo. I hear someone whispered my ears a little kid. She's coming. No one thing. They'll sell great. Nope. No, one of the most hideous creatures. I've ever seen in all of gaming. It's like it looks like slender man woman, but with hair in a big weird funky face, and she's like tall and skinny and lanky and she's kind of moving around the world on hands yet. I think she has call hands. I'm pretty sure she has call. I know I offered the closet, and then you have to go in the closet, and then she's like skittering around outside. Oh, oh, so good. I didn't want to do this. Now. It's exciting run Olympia. But yeah, she was hideous. Because this isn't that bad of this is a story about little goes a little go show like that's actually helpful ghost and feed you saying that she's coming. That's like crap. Maybe we're being helpful. And then the other thing I don't trust mega. I mean, you know, try trust children more than I trust the creepy. Lady lady absolutely wants to kill it might be together. I don't know what if that child is like Newt in alien and she just needs help. Yeah. We'll have to find out. I guess Bill. It's kidding. Which was it with the kid ran up and chases we screamed, and then I was slender. Was it still under the arrival number the little? Yes. This is this is no XBox box scene. I'm looking at right now. But yeah, I mean it all the clause in the option to hide and it's like, oh, no. I know where this is going. But yeah, I mean, how do you know what you can get out? Well, I would just sit in the closet for the game. You know? You know? In the closet and the developer was behind me. And I was like I leave yet. He's like no don't leave yet. So I saw are disappeared cloud of smoke. And then I the seemed it was safe to get out. Okay. But wait. So you're you can you're. There's a God in Oakland. And you can like left or right here. Like like running around, then another. No, nope. Oh, yeah. Definitely excited about this to go home. I like this portion of it. So you think's. Yeah, I'm good. I'm with Steiner. He can we talk about an adorable game about Birt's. Yes. That will be the last one for this segment. So I've been meaning to get my hands on falcon age for quite some time. We've seen it at several shows over the last year, or so, of course, falcon Asia's coming to PlayStation four and PlayStation VR. And I believe we're going to spend some time with the VR demo at Pax. So we'll have to give you guys and update because we played it on the regular to diversion on PlayStation for at the mix another staple GD event, featuring tons of indie games, so fell can age for people who are not familiar. I'm gonna just go to the little blurb here from outer loop games fell cage is a first person single player action adventure as. Are learned to hunt. Gather and fight to reclaim her cultural legacy and the lost art of falcon hunting against a force of automated colonizers gonna just come into PS four with optional VR support. So essentially you start off the game as our and says that you've been wrongfully thrown in jail for minor infractions while she awaits her fatal only sell. She passed the time by finding a young falcon jet of the escape and set off an adventure to help the resistance. Reclaim their freedom in drive off the invaders. So this is coming sometime in twenty nine team. Okay. Yeah. No, baby. The baby milk in is a dorsal. And we we saw a couple of different things that the falcon can do. So essentially, our have your two hands in your right hand. You had this almost like this whip like weapon, and then on your left hand is where you call the bird. And so you can send the bird to attack things. She can go out hunting into funny because when we were talking to echo one of the developers on the game. I was like why did you go with a female falcon? And he was like what we found out that male falcons, actually, pretty dumb. The female vulcans are smarter. They're faster, they're bigger. So they're like, why would we not want just use the female? Okay. That's amazing. Some of the gifts that they have on the website is like in this foam. Yeah, there's like a little love button that you hit. You can do all these little things. Put your hands together to make a heart. When you put your and puts his little face through it could take them in turn around their health. So oh, yes. So when you interact with your Birlik that it feels the they're healthier. Oh, that's so cute. Yeah. And there's a whole cooking and craft element where you can cook the bird, you know. You know, you cook the falcon coat Jerry do how treats for the foul bad. So that give the bird. How little bunnies and stuff, and you can tell your into go get the bunnies. And then it brings us a little doorbell piece of meat. Yes. When you go hunting with your bird. So there's rabbits in the world that you're welcome can hunt. And when the falcon has successfully killed one of the rabbits, they bring the meat back in its claws and shape like a rabbit head. It's rabbits are cute. So we're not like. The ones in the game aren't that? Okay. So you don't feel bad about kill rabbits. Correct. By the way, cuter engine. He's you're ready. Yeah. And you can dress. She just your bird up yet. So you can put lots of little outfit pieces on her. She wear bandannas head ties. I'm like, this is the best game ever guess. So it looks cue. We hope to spend more time with it at like, I said we're going to give you guys update. Once we get to play in VR because echo was like you have to come back and play it in VR. And don't worry. We will. We'll see you packs. So yeah, it's going to be really fun. Just some highlights you can bond with your bird. You can hunt with the falcons even craft snacks regime fell can fight the robot colonizers, reclaim your land. And then there's a challenge free mode, which allows you to play the story with optional combat so well, right? So when we were talking to him he said one of the things that we really wanted to add to the game. That was a part of the original vision was an exploratory mode where you can just go out in the world. With your burden kind of hang out. He's he said that they played with a lot of families with kids who really kind of gravitated towards the Filkin and wanted to be friends with it and play the game with combat was just too difficult for some of these younger kids. So he's like why don't we just make a free play mode? So they've now added that into the development of the game, which I thought was really cute. That's like a really good Gottschee. But with a bird kind of. Yeah. No way looking. So I don't know if outer loop has given an official release it. I think it just says twenty nineteen still. Yeah. PS four in twenty nineteen. Of course, it's built specifically for PS VR using the move controllers or dual shock for so expect some fun motion controls, which we will again report back on. All right. So that's going to do it for our hands on segment for the week. I know a lot of you out. There are still playing the division to when we will reconnect with you guys on that next week. Hopefully, I'll get to some of the endgame content after GD is done. And so when we check back with you, can you know, how level thirty the division is playing. So we will get back to you guys on that. But for now, let's take a short break, and we will see you in a minute. What's good everybody? Welcome to the final segment of the west good games podcasts. And this week. Our feature segment is all about the academy of interactive arts and sciences. And it's brought to you by quip. What are the most important things we do for our health? Everyday is brushing our teeth yet. Most of us don't do it. Properly. Quip is a better electric toothbrush created by dentist end designers. It was designed to make brushing your teeth more simple, affordable and dare I say enjoyable. It's sensitive sonic vibrations. That are gentle enough on even the most sensitive gums, and why is this important because people brush too hard in some electric toothbrushes are just too abrasive. And also has a built in two minute timer that pulses every thirty seconds to remind you won this, which side's helping guide a full and even clean because up to ninety percent of us. Don't brush for a full two minutes or don't clean evenly. That's right. I voted told you guys guilty as charge. That's thirty second pulse. Reminds me brush my teeth for at least thirty seconds. Total brush for a full two minutes. But sometimes you're in a hurry. But I had to remind myself have you felt the pulse yet. No keep that toothbrush in your mouth and keep rushing. I'm also use cover is also a very handy part of that mounts Humira announces sleight of your bristles for on the go brushing, it declutter, Cinco cabinet and makes traveling with an electric toothbrush easier, and it doesn't require clunky. Charger and runs for three months on a single charge. So we use quip we love quip. I have it with me while up GDP, it's keeping my teeth cleaned for all those game demo appointments, we're doing and is backed by over twenty thousand dental professionals quip starts at just twenty five bucks. And if you go to get quip dot com slash what's good right now. You'll get your first refill pack for free with the quip electric toothbrush. That's GT. Hugh, IP dot com slash what's good for your free refill pack. All right, Megan's, scabby was here. She's been on the show. I'm so glad that we finally get to talk a little bit about the academy of. Arts and sciences because I feel like every time I bring it up usually around the dice awards. People are like what's that? I mean when I left you d to go to the academy. I went I asked everyone, I knew do you know, what the academy is. Season video game developers. No idea what the academy is. And that's kind of what I'm here to do is to change that. But what it what it really is? It was a nonprofit founded in nineteen ninety six by a bunch of publishers and developers in they founded the dice ward. So what they wanted to do think it was called the academy the AS awards at the time. But boy, that's a mouthful it really is I would love to change that. But it was an effort to celebrate the craft video games. So they were the first peer driven video game ceremony in the industry. So they award on based on craft and disciplined, so art direction animation technology and obviously best game and others. So it's peer based group, and it's been going on for over twenty years. And now we want to grow it. We want to. I wanna do is expose gamers too. How games are made. Like, why is why did God of war win best? Why did Spiderman win best animation last year? Was that the only category at one should have more? But I wanna I want to try to increase visibility for the real developers out there, not just the guy who's out there Corey we love him. But he's out there. He's a spokesperson for that game. But it's made by so many other people with so many other skill sets. And I wanna talk about them and expose them more to the general audience. I think that those such a fantastic like mission for the academy because people that listen to this show or watch the show are clearly fans video gains. But not all of them have even the remotest clue. Like how video game gets made. I think we're we're all included. They're like, we we know a lot more than the average bear. There's still so many roles within a development studio that I have no idea what they do. Or you've got people who are just go. Why didn't you ship with a multiplayer because they don't understand what goes into like easy? Right. Right. So let's take them through some of that process and teach them a bit more about how video games are really. We made and the people who make them because it's not just also it's not just a typical who you think makes video game. There are lots of women. There are lots of LGBTQ. There are lots of people have colored every single person you could imagine makes video games. So I wanna put that out there to normalize the fact that it's a very diverse group of people and artists really who make the games we love it's so fascinating looking at a show like the game developers conference this week and seeing people from all over the world kind of converse to share knowledge into do these talks that are happening all week long at the convention center, where people really come to learn from each other. And I am always so inspired by how many different types of people come from so many different countries around the world because I think sometimes we get into our own silos and our own bubbles of like like only, I only know studios that are from American companies, right? But like there's so many companies that don't even make games an English. Right. And even the people working within the studios, very rarely get outside of their studio. So providing a way for them to network with each other I talked to someone from Campo Santo who's the environmental artists there. And she's just like a mentor to young artists all over the place. But she like sometimes I need help. Sometimes I wanna talk to appear and I'm the only environmental artist in the building. So how can I connect those people too? So that they have an outlet. That's another one of my jobs that I have to figure out how to do. Yeah. Well, you guys are doing so many cool initiatives. One of the things we were talking about before we started recording was this scholarship program with the foundation. Yes. So we have a charitable arm of the AS foundation the academy of interactive arts, and we have two goals, we provide tuition assistance to students who want to enter game careers and game programs in schools, and then we have a scholarships for under represented game developers developers to advance their careers. Just on Sunday of GTC, we hosted amplify new voice. Ios which is. We bring thirty six underrepresented developers. They've been in the industry three to six years. They've shipped one to two games, and they want to now be Representative of their games and not talk about who they are in the industry, but what they do in the industry. So we provide them we provide them professional headshots, we help them rewrite their professional bios. We give them on camera speaker training. So we film them during a presentation, then we critique it afterwards. And we give them on camera media training and do the same where they us them the hard questions ever need. How we we'll we'll come in and ask some questions. That actually maybe we'll do that next year. I have a reputation for asking all the questions that are like we're not quite talking about that yet as your that is such a good idea because a media person comes in and gives them a half hour of training. That's actually, really quite valuable. I take notes, and then we have to give them. We asked them throw curveballs and stuff we should bring you next time. Hey, man, coach, I'm ready to play. But then hopefully, you know, they go out there, and they and they get a free GDP pass giving give them a thousand dollars travel stipend, but hopefully, they can go out there. And that's amazing the interviewed by you guys. Instead, no one teaches you how to do this stuff. Exactly my teaches you how to act on camera. What to say, I don't know. What to do? I don't even know what I'm doing at the time. I want to normalize the fact that the industry is made up of such a diverse group of people. I don't want it to just be. Hey, I'm lady I'm gonna sit and talk about being a lady and games. I want her just a poor lady out there to talk about the game. She made or the role that she took in making her role. That she had in making that Kim. And yeah, we were talking earlier. There's so many different types of people in the game industry. I told you we were launching a five k race this year. Yes for exciting. Very first video game industry. Five K race. The AS foundation bit run in April here in Los Angeles. Or I'm sorry there in Los Angeles. I'm not there right now. Insomniac will be there naughty dog will be there Sony. Santa Monica will be there. But there's a lot of like very athletic people who make games which surprises me. They're not just people who sit behind computers all day, they're triathletes and ironman, it's crazy and for people who do live in the Los Angeles area. This is not limited just to game developers. Anybody can sign up for this. Anyone can sign up. It goes all the proceeds go to fund our foundation fifty dollars ticket. Anyone can go and race and race against people who made Spiderman. Yeah, you just like run alongside. To you right now, they'll be donuts afterwards. Share don't after stivers. You may have just got yourself another broken toe. I've considered as being the person who throws donuts at people while they're running. Yeah. I think it's really important what you're doing. Because I think there's just idea that game just comes out of thin air. I mean, obviously, not, but they don't people average consumer doesn't quite realize how much blood, sweat, and tears and motions and sacrifices go into making the game like this. And I think humanizing that actually could go a long way for reducing the city. That's the perfect word. It's just humanizing. The fact that games are made by human beings. And let's treat a treat them that way. So I feel like I need to start training. Now, what date is this April? It's April thirteenth. It's on the beach dockweiler beach was we're going down there. It is right down. The I wanted to make it somewhere pleasant looking even though it's I think it's by the airport, but it should allow. The airport, but we'll keep doing this every year, and I really think it's going to grow, and maybe we can even take it to other cities. So that other people who don't live in the Los Angeles area compared to spit that would be awesome. And so if you guys are interested where can people find more details about where to sign up for this five K bit run if they want to participate interactive dot org that is the academy of interactive arts and sciences website. I'm they also have details there about the scholarships that the foundation does because you guys do grants throughout the year as well. We do two sets of grants we do grant stirring on the first half of the year in the second half of the year and people have to apply, and you have to show need we get close to one hundred -plication 's and we only accept about twelve so two highly competitive highly competitive, but I mean, if you're out there, maybe one of those people could be you maybe wanna make a game. And don't know how needs help. Can you give an example somebody that has been granted a grant? Well there well their scholarships. So we paid twenty five hundred dollars tortures tuition. So literally help pay for your school. And then we bring you to die summit so that they can actually interact. That's so many of these students over the last eight years, I got invited to a ladies lunch table by arbitral friend, Perrin Kaplan who works in the industry for zebra partners. And she's always so good about connecting people. And so she pulled about like six or seven of these students at dice 'em with a bunch of other industry leaders. And then she's like Andrea you come over here too. And I'm like don't belong to that table. But okay. So I was there, and we got to meet some of these students and hear about what they're working on where they're from. And it was just so inspiring to see this amazing generation of future game makers, and the visions that they have in the work. They're putting in because when I was in school wasn't an action a literal future game makers one of her. Scholarship recipients was standing in line for lunch a couple of years ago. Next two min Kim who was from next on and then founded bonfire game studios, he hired her by having conversations with her in the lunch line at dice ended up. She works at bonfire. That's. I know also, I should talk more people in Lynch. Tell you that work. Well, that's one of the things I always give advice to people. I mean, we get asked all the time. Like, how do we get into games? How do we break in? I'm sure you get asked constantly. And I said like, you never know who you're gonna meet you have to network network network network. Always go to every venture invited to go out of your way to break down some of your maybe your social reservations and just put yourself out there and say, hi, this is my name. Here's my business card because you'd never know who you're going to be. I mean, I've been in the game industry for twenty years, and I find that most people in the industry are crazy. Nice. Yes. And they are willing to talk to you. They're willing to talk to anyone video games. They make video game. Mcmillian mutual passion. Exactly. So. Yeah. No one no one should be afraid to just walk up to someone and start a conversation. Indeed. Do you have any other cool things that the says working on there's some there's one new program that I'm working on which is in new member driven program that will help eventually take over how the awards are run determine the categories and the nominees and the winners of that might be a couple years in the making. But we're just starting at now I held a little private secret meeting during dice where I invited a bunch of very seasoned game developers to help give me and tell me what to and they sure did. They're like a have been waiting for you to ask. I mean, it was really nice because I like to be very transparent in what we do. So they reiterated that that's what they want more of. So get ready for that. Well, that's a transparent president what a novel idea. I'm so excited that you are at the helm of AS, obviously, lots of developers probably express their sadness when you left GTC, but having you know, the ability to call you Madam President of the academy's not only as your front is something that I'm like super proud to do. But also, I think I've told you this before we get so many women that watch the show that say like having us be in the spotlight has helped them. And I think having like you at the top of this leadership organization helps those women also say, hey, if Megan can be the president of the academy. I can maybe do it one day to it's all about representation, and that's what we all have to do is help others get to where we are. And that's that's my goal. And maybe have some fun play some games drinks to kilo along the way. Let's kill his right after this. I'm told. Thank you so much for making time during GD to come down and be on the show. We've been wanting you here forever, and this has been such a treat, and again, if you guys want to learn more about the academy of interactive arts and sciences that website is interactive dot org and the bit run is happening on April thirteenth, you can still sign up on their website. And of course, you know, where to find us. What's games com slash podcast dot com slash what's good games. Things. We've got special guest ROY Moore. So Roberto on the show next week timers going to be on vacation. So look forward to that episode. And we'll see guys that packs by everybody.

And so I hope you guys enjoy my conversation with Neil Patrick Harris. I hang out with only a door guys. Yeah. That's that's the one requirement so warming here for soon. But, but you strike me, as somebody who I, I can't imagine a Christian. I often say that it's a rare combination to be confident and not Dushi Dino you have that you possess that you are known by every. I mean, you're very recognized recognizable face. How does that again? Not a good thing or a bad thing. I've, I'm sure that came with its own frustrations. But what were the what were the what were the bonuses of that? And what were the lameta then?

Otherwise in the Screen Actors Guild. Okay to you. Speaking of the drag circuit, drag queens, inappropriate words, still track Queen clean. Yeah. Queens, gray queens. Great. I mean I say no. No, I drag for a living. But I think queens are do you remember that bar on I and I called Waikiki walis. Waikiki while he was like a Tiki bar right next door to that. Curio key drag bar called lucky Chang's. Oh, cool. Lucky Chang's in the first time I ever said, I was natural out loud was at lucky Chang's. We would go get all liquid up.

Boy, ash is funny. He's like foreign. He's flying. He's so for his eyes are different colors at different times. He also like does the it kind of gave me like a fan Fiqh feel. Yeah, writing what they wanted because he was so like he was like, like funny because of his like im- he would be getting barest about things or like whatever. Also, I like the main character. I really liked her. She is a little bit of Mary, sue, a little little esta, touch a touch that being said, it was when the little moments like this are what made me go. Not settle the fuck down. So just to set the scene y-you quick before we get into the larger plot? Yeah, ashes a vampire, yes. He's looking for his sister. He comes to briar rid. Greeted organ. An. Kelly, holy shit. That places rifle with supernatural different beings. So he's coming to get him. He's like, ruthless. He's a fucking womanizer of human women. Any eats them? Probably probably. And. He carries all about the family honor. He's coming together and he's like, blah, blah, blah, whatever cost. And he goes to Maryland net and Mark's house. They're brother and sister to ask questions. Try to figure out if they've told anyone if they are vampires. Right. Lamia. Yeah, Lamia different than made vampires. Yes. They're born bam, orange empire, and they're part of the nightmares will aspect of these books like that too. Yeah, I like that too. And the scissors are rowing kestrel Jade year, which great names?

I am hyped the know yet. I'm hyped on candy. I'm hot on ash. This is a really good book and highly recommend, but yeah, so Jade rain. Oh, born people, there's baby animal death. I can't. I know. And within the first like twenty pages, it's pretty upsetting. Yeah, I do like that. It kind of made the informed us, though. A lot of now is girls. They really added to their character. It fleshed out their character reader. Yeah. And Jade reminded me of drew Sylla. He's yeah. Yes. 'cause she so fucking weird. She's wieners or like normal to interact with? Yeah, she's like loopy as fuck. Yeah, she's super loopy. I wouldn't be surprised if she could see the future or something. Yeah, except that she's white blonde hair instead of yuck air. Yeah. Yeah, Bubba. Their marks Jade's in love with Mark, but then so Ashby's by the how asking about his sister's Maryland Mark stepmother, Clud dean is in the living which we want to talk about her later. I think, yes. And she's talking to ash and she's like, oh, blah, blah. Here's all the bunch of information. And Maryland is like, who is this boy in the fucking living room? Distracting me from my mission to find out if MRs has been killed by her nieces because she's rear window wing it. She's very much rare looking her little telescope and she sees the sisters carrying like a body bag and bearing in the backyard night. And so she's like. And she's very interested in astronomy. Yes. And so that's why she sees them, which I thought was you know, good everybody, everything tied together in an excellent believable way. New wasn't like some like she's fucking interested in strana me just so she can see them bury the body really fed into her character and the whole. Yeah, because there's a part where she's talking about how she's like. There were times when she would look at a star that's very far away and get this aching, that's like deep within her come so moved. Yeah, and like the desire for something more and like, so all of that, I thought rang really true for almost every teenager feels that way, and it makes her like a curious, interesting person and very. Scientific yet really following rational and she's a night owl, which she's already into the nighttime, which then she like feels this connection with ash which is, oh my God. House? What is about to say? So Mary Lynette goes in the living room? Yeah. And Claudine introduces them and they shake hands. And I did take a photo with a soldier's breed Italy's pulling it up. She's pulling it up. So they fucking love the way she wrote this. So she walks in the lowering very Lynette. This is ash. She's here to visit with Antony sisters. He's here to visit with his sisters. Clubbing said at this Maryland, the one who such good friends with your in Ashkhabad up all in one, lovely, lazy motion just like a cat, including the stretch in the middle high. He offered a hand, Maryland touched it with fingers damp and cold from the coat can glanced up at his face and said, hi, except that it didn't happen that way. On like this, Mary Lynette had her eyes on the carpet as she came in, which gave her a good view of his Nike tennis shoes and the rip knees of his jeans when he stood up, she looked at his tee-shirt which had an obscure design a black flower. On a white background, probably the emblem of some rock group that's kind of dorky. Right that he wears the his own club? Yeah, come on. He's like a move. I'm in the Louisville. Yeah. And then when his hand entered her field of vision, she reached where it automatically muttering greeting and looking up at his face just as she touched it, and this was the part that was hard to describe contact. Something happened hate, don't I know you. This isn't Tyler by way she didn't. That was the thing. She didn't know him, but she felt that she should. She also felt as if somebody had reached inside her and touched her spine with a live electric wire, it was extremely, not enjoyable. The room turned vaguely pink, her throat swells, and she. Could feel her heart beating. They're also not enjoyable, but somehow when you put it all together, it made a kind of Trombley dizziness like like what she felt when she looked at the lagoon nebula or imagine galaxies gathered into clusters and super clustered clusters, bigger and bigger until size lost any meaning, and she felt herself falling. She was falling now. She couldn't see anything except his eyes. And those is were strange prism like changing color, like a star seemed through heavy atmosphere. Now, blue now gold. Now violet take this away, please don't want it and then they both snap out of it and he pulls his hand back. He clearly felt the same thing. And then later he's like, oh, like, oh, so annoying believe this is happening to me. Let me see if I can find out walking around being angsty like at night in the like like here in the dark. So little bit just like a few pages later, we're with ashes point of view. Now, why. I ne- ashes staring at a yellow cedar, weeping into a creek, a squirrel, too stupid to get out of the sun was staring back at him on Iraq beside him, a lizard lifted. I one foot than another. It wasn't fair. It wasn't right. It didn't even believe it always been lucky or at least he'd always managed to escape a hair hair's breadth away from disaster. This time, the disaster at hit and it was total annihilation move over here. Everything he was everything he believed about himself. Could he loose that in five minutes for girl who's probably deranged certainly more dangerous than all three of his sisters put together. No, he concluded grimly. Absolutely. Not not in five minutes. It only took five seconds. He knew so many girls. Nice girls which is with mysterious smiles vampires with delicious curves, shape Shifter's with cute, furry tales. Even human girls with fancy sports cars never seem to mind when he nibbled at their next. Why couldn't it have. I've been one of them. Well, it wasn't. And there is no point in wondering about the injustice of it question was what was he going to do about it? Just sit back and let fate right over him. Like an eighteen Wheeler. Thanks. That's the Seinfeld music singing while I wait to see if there's anything else. So anyway, all of this is adding up to the fact that they are soulmates tears. Soulmates also like actual legit. So it's not like Jade and Mark who are just in love. Yeah, they're like, can't let capital s. so yeah, let's fire lightning. Yeah, soul connection soulmates even though neither of them want it to be the case. Yeah, also like so she finds out that he's like old fashioned and kind of sexist and loved that instantly is like, get the fuck out of my house kicked him in the shins. And then there's a part which I actually thought this part was really funny and it like made him kind of charming, which was so Maryland at sought again. So they can his face that made him suddenly look not fatuous or amiable at all, like the glitter of a knife blade in the in the light. Something that said danger go bother someone else, Maryland. Said she drew back her foot for another kick. He opened his mouth, then shut it still holding his shin. He looked at Claudine and manage to hurt and miserable. Flirtatious smile. Thanks so much for all your go. He lost the smile. That's what I'm doing. If you lived to the front door, she followed him like I thought that part was like very funny. There is hot off guard. He's trying to get his swagger. Well, thanks for the I'm going. I am. Then there's like another part where he like MRs burdock house. He doesn't know that the front step has like a fucked up step and you can fall into it. Yeah. So they hear this allowed crash and they come out and he's just like in it and he's like a fell. But that was very cute. I loved this fucking book do really, really liked it. Remember people now when we're talking about liking Ashton secret vampire because he's like, full-on, like worse jareth. Yeah, Yar Julian in secret vampire. And so it's like he strolls into Brier creek, same guy. And then he shakes a hand with a human and it's a soul mate needs like. Well. Okay. Any has to be a completely different person. Yeah, yeah. And I also liked him like kind of warring with how he feels about her with how he's stubborn and same with her. I just really, I really liked the relationship. That's what I was going to say her being a little bit of a Mary sue. She's just like to fucking plucky comes to ask like, yeah, kicking him in the shin multiple times in different scenes even seemed like a very moment where they're talking and he's like, she's like, you think I'm weak and he's like, well, compared to me, you are just like I can take care of myself. And then later in the book when he's really trying to endear himself to her, he is the well. I'll go out there to fight and then he's like, he catches himself and he says something like, I mean, like we'll go, there will be of us and her head. She goes. Close buddy, but no cigar and I was like, shut the fuck up Mary win at, yes, she's kind of being contrarian just to be contrarian points and just a little too, like women can do anything. It's like it's one thing to write a strong female character and another to have one constantly like spouting off about it yet. She again, this book. That the way that she's written makes this book feel a little dated because then it's it does feel very. So like nineties girl. Yeah, like it is very the subtlety of wind. She finds out or he says, the thing about an old fashioned family. Yeah, love love move how it's handled then right when she's like, oh, I see what you're saying. Because he's, oh, it's way like I wanna know who my sister's friends. Our friends are. He's and she's like, why? Oh, and I guess you care about who you're friends with to. Oh, it was. So it's like you and Mark and Mark would be your brother. That's right. Clubbing said from the doorway, any brothers or sisters? Maryland. Blinked. What you're taking a census Ashdod a bad imitation of his former lazy smile. I just like to keep track of my sister's friends. Why to see if you approve or something? Actually, yes, he did this mile again with more success or an old fashioned family. Very old fashioned, Marilyn nets jaw dropped. Then all at once she felt happy. She didn't need to think about murders or pink rooms or what this guy knew. All she needed to think about was what she was going to do to him. So you're an old fashioned family. She said, moving step forward astronaut and you're in charge. Maryland said, well, out here back home, my father is, and you're just going to tell your sisters, which friends they can have, maybe you get to decide your friends to actually, I was just discussing that he waved a hand toward clubbing. And then this weird moment happens with Claudine do and cloudy talking to Maryland, so. So Maryland is thinking this to herself. Yes. He were Maryland at realized she took another step toward ash who still smiling, oh, no clotting said she flopped her dish towel once don't smile almost like she knows what's about to go down and she's trying to warn ash like, no, no, you don't understand. You're really pissing her off. Yeah, and I thought that was good and subtle of like, oh, year affecting sexists now I don't have to worry about anything. I'm just going to treat you like a sexist versus like Colo's buddy about and knows gar. Yeah, it does feel a little bit like it just feels like, and the same thing with the shin kicking. It feels like something that someone very young with think is kinda cool. You know, like, oh, well. So, yeah, yeah. When it's like, I don't know. Like to me, it just seems a little bit impetuous and childish of her. Yeah, it was like a super basic, yeah, feeling of strength or just like hokey. It was hokey. That's what it was. It just vote super cheesy, strong character and sort of just strong female. Kirk, I did like the part where when he's like, hey, you know what? Like, don't hang out my sisters and she's like, why? Because he'd be a bad influence on her and she's like, ash, get in Di. I did like when she said that part, I liked that too. It was the kicking thing was like, not that q, it's it felt like you know what it is. The kicking thing felt like someone who thinks she's being so cute. Yeah, you know what a girl being like. I'm like tho- like like now you're imprint buddy? Yeah, someone like slaps guys too much. You know what I'm talking about. Like the kind of girl is like, I mean, I think this was. More of something in high school that I saw this type of grown. I did this kind of stuff too, which was like, I'm going to be flirty which means I'm going to be mean to you. And then like I'm gonna like like punchy on the arm and stuff and like, 'cause I'm like a fun girl that like likes to be punchy. I dunno, it just struck me as like, I think I can get away with this because I'm so cute. So the movie of Annie the musical, the Carol Burnett, one. When Annie is like. Like she runs into the boys in the alley tormenting sandy, and she like rolls or sleeves up and he's like, what would you like? Who's going to do anything about it? And she's like near, have to answer to me and it's like the same way when I picture Maryland, putting up her fists and going, do you want a knuckle sane, which. Cheesy cheesy, but most of the book it's me just couple Mary cool. There are these? I was. It was like laying it on a little too thick that she was like, I'm not about to be bossed around by you. Yeah, just like well, then just like, don't be bossed around by him. She then she's a little. He means she is young. That's the thing. It's like an author Li like it's just cheesy cheesy, just like dial down cheese. It is a little too cheesy. Dubbing said like, I think she does have a right to feel annoyed with him angry with him because he hates humans. He thinks vermin. That's what the differences. The moments when it's cheesy is her being like annoyed by him, but it's like, okay, well, he's like a fucking vampire. He found out his your soulmate anger get beyond greet. Don't be like a so annoyed with him. That's the, you know why he's not a show Venus pig. He's of Pontiac. Yeah, I mean, so this, like I think this kind of goes back to what I was saying before about how this feels like fan Fiqh. It does in the good ways and in the bad way, it's like creating conflict too. So that the slow burn slower Bernier. Yeah. And then it's like a like a will that hate each other, you know they have, but it's like, yeah, it has to. I don't know. I mean, really good fan, Vic, does it really well, but I have read quite a bit of ethic. That's like, I'm mad at you for dumb reasons. Yeah. And then it's like man, and it's just a create conflict. Yeah. So I think that's it feels very fanfare key in very cheesy during the took it out of. Scarier more ominous tone. Yeah, and then took it such kinda goofy place. Yeah, yeah, so that, yeah, actually, my only criticism, yeah, whole book. I was shocked by the twist. I didn't know it was the where will. Yeah, I got really thrown off the path. Yeah, by that I thought it was bunny I was she did a good job of making me think it was legit and it'd be bunny. Yeah. So like basically. Okay. So when the sisters arrive because they were a corresponding they're trying to leave the night world 'cause they don't like it there because the night world is very old fashioned and they're expected to dress a certain way. Human old fat. Yeah, not just, yeah, like you toll to marry and you're and all the men have the save your life. Yeah, and they're just like these pretty little caged birds and so they wanna leave. And so kestrel Rohan, Jade. ruinous the oldest? Yes. Ruins the oldest. She's old and wise and she has Brown hair in kestrel has like blonde golden hair and she's like fiery, yeah, fierce icy. And then Jade has like white blonde hair and she's like, dreamy and sweet. Loopy and sweet. Yeah. So. Oh, yeah, that's what the animal death is. Yeah, is with Jade Jade. So they come to the book, opens with them like arriving in what is it? Brier creek? And they're trying to get to their aunt's house and MRs burdock these two guys pick them up and like try to rape them. And then they just like eat their blood and then light like eat their blood, and then they like drain their memory of drink like kowtowing on their blood Choo Choo Choo and then they're like, yeah, you and I love that. Moment too, because like because we know these guys are in for it felt so satisfactory and it did make these girls seem very other worldly because their thoughts were just like, this is going to happen. Okay. Well, we said we weren't going to kill, but I guess they're like turning to each other like, but I. K, I guess we have to and they're really just talking to each other, been totally sidelined on her like, hey, weren't you acting scared and they're just like them are either blood and then they, they, they chop their blood. Then they like during their memories and they're like, okay, we're gonna leave. You were just going to walk to the aunt's house. They find out that the aunt is mummified because she's been staked. Another thing about vampires in night world is that born vampires Lamia are able to stop aging whenever they want, and then like turn it back on whenever they want at which point they start aging to how old they would be if they had never stopped. And so when be gets staked, she mummified because she's going back to her original originally day. Yeah. And then if you're turned you just stay the age that you were when you were bit, and so they arrive and they like they see that there is dead, and then the animal part is really, it is really sad. I hate that it happens, but I do think it like, totally. We get who these characters are because then so what happens feel cheap. At the beginning, Jade is like concern because she. Can't hear anything coming from her closed up suitcase. So she's a close up suitcase, and she has a cat cage and she's acting super guilty. Yes, shady and her cat Twiggy Tiggy take Tiggy so cute. So then Tikki is in the cat carrier. She goes into the room and she like make sure no one's around. And she opens up the suitcase, and then she realizes that the kittens she tried to bring more than she was allowed to. They were like Jade, you're allowed to bring one kitten when we run away and she's like, Yep, she puts one in a carriage puts too in the sneak the others, but she's too dumb to know that they will suffocate and die. 'cause she doesn't understand how living beings to she is really sad, and that's the thing she's like they're all interested development because they're because of their environment. Yon, how the real world works not at all. So she's like holding these little kittens and she's like, Ono they died and like, is it kestrel that comes in? That's like, yeah, rolling Orion Ronas is like Jade. Only supposed to bring one and she's like, like kestrel tolls you. You're only allowed to bring one. She's like, I know that's why put the other my suitcase, I know. And she's like, okay, well, I like I can take care of them for you, and she's like, you're gonna eat the kittens, and she's like, no, I'll get rid of them and she's like, no, I want to bury them. So she goes into the basement. That's where she finds dead MRs burdock. And I, I don't know. I just thought I really even those very sad kittens beaded a really gave us an indication of who Jade is. Yeah. So it was used in a very important way that she, hey with. Yeah, she's just picturing tune getting too little kitty, very upsetting. Very upsetting. I got really sad and had to hug my cats, but. Like it was that she like cares about other life but doesn't understand it. So I thought that was important. And we also learned that they're not evil. And. And that's when they bury because she's like, I got gotta bury the cats when we're gonna bury aunt burdock to whatever his hit one. Is it something like that? Her last name is burdock, but what's her first name and. Burdock is a route that's why they're nail nature names training. So when they find her, they're just like poor anti. So they bear in the yard. And that's where when she stargazing, Mary Lynette, sees them bury the body and and OPEL hit OPEL. That's right. OPEL burdock young. Her Izhak were Dr Coles with dry tissue inside her nose was collapsed port anti ruin. Set. I like that and then, okay. Let's talk about the other love interest for Mary. Lynette, Jeremy. Yes, he's quiet. He's was. He doesn't really go to school anymore. No, his uncle died mysteriously now. He just lives alone out and he has since he was twelve. Yeah. He he and Mary Lynette of chemistry, and she fondly remembers the time last year when he sat and watched the eclipse with her, the lunar eclipse the, I'm, he's handsome. He is strong. He works on cars is Brown hair Brown. Sandy Brown hair don't Fulton is tan Hans, his ten fingers. And I mean, here's the thing I thought isn't this weird that it's like a love triangle between her and him and ash, and it's like vampire where go. Yeah, the whole time. I was like twilight. Twilight. Twilight. Twilight. Yeah, news restoring. So that's why I also would like thought that he was going to be not you. More like, oh, you're like, oh, team, Asher team, Jeremy? Yeah, but then crack answer that Jeremy is evil. So basically he like lost his damn mind. He's a crazy where wolf he doesn't usually where wolves only kill to eat, and that's like thing that they keep saying. They're like, look, don't think that just because someone's aware wolf, they're bad. They're not the like only killed eat. Yeah, they tell Mary Lynette, like, oh, it couldn't have been Jeremy, where wolves filming Kilty eat. Yeah. And she's like, oh, think few q. fug. You and poop. See not you not you as he was killing to protect his territory, which is not allowed. No. And also like he killed his gall 'cause it's was like, we shouldn't kill things just to kill, and he was like fucking kill. You. Oh, you. And then he killed an OPEL because like they had a cool report, but then an OPEL told him that her nieces were coming and he was like skews that's really gonna, fuck up my hunting territory cool with within OPEL because she only fed off her goats. Yeah, she didn't hunt. So that's why killed in Opal thinking that when they came and found her dead, they would just leave again, but they didn't. I don't know why he thought they would leave like they would probably try to solve the murder. I think he thought it would scare them. Yeah, going back. He was like, oh, they're just like she got staked, not just like, yeah. So they were like a vampire murder, vampire killer Hiller, hunter, umpire, homicide or vampire vehicular manslaughter. You manslaughter. So also the only thing that can like a vampire skin or really hurt them would. That's interesting. He's never seen that before I liked to. It's like, oh, that's we give ourselves tree names and Marilyn. It's like, why would you name herself after trees when you can be killed by wooden, they're like, we'll because it's very powerful, very powerful and we respect that. Yeah, yeah. I thought that was a good detail that was a good detail. Hey, guys, Kelly here.

So killed girls available. Now, wherever books and audio books are sold. Now back to the show. And then and the and so like I did like that. Maryland is like, this is fucking crazy.

She Stanton today's used collusion. I love you. Killing. I killed the other Dion. Pretended in here. Hello. Or cute. There are Hewitt. I actually was not annoyed by them, but I was very relieved that they were not the focus of the story. The back of the book made me think that they were like, read the back of the book even though where the plot, but it made me it made it seem like it was about Mark and Jade. You're right. Oh, it's fucking footnote. The man that is there and then it misrepresents her and Ashish anyway, read it, honor, Levy. There's something strange about the girls down Brackley. Oregon has never seen anything quite like the supernatural grace, Rowan, kestrel, Jade, three sisters move into the dilapidated old house. Next American, Mary Lynette Carter, Marcus, obsessed Jade, but she and her sisters have secret and when Mark and Mary Lynette follow them into the woods. One night, they are plunged to do a nightmare beyond their imagination because those are fugitives from the night world, brother ashes, hot on the trail behind them. He's ruthless gorgeous, and he has orders to bring the girls back all. And when he sees Mary. He decides to take her to like the footnote. You're right. Not quite. I mean, thank goodness because more because they're a bit much. They're just like it's fine for them to always be in the periphery yet. The fact that she only sprinkles them across the real plot, I was like, okay, thank them both. Weird. Yeah, they're both very weird. Weird about each other. They are. They are super young love. It is like eight teen dreamed up public Buffy and angel. It's worse. It's more embarrassing. It's more balancing chores. It feels like thirteen year old love. It feels like Romeo and Juliet. Thirteen year old. How old is our Mary win it and Mark? I think he's younger. He's younger than her is isn't she is junior or sophomore? I think she's seventeen. Okay. So you know, maybe maybe he's like. Oh, I think so because she's seventeen for sure I can be eighteen next year. Yeah, which is part of a like maybe hold off ash which is way more than angel and Buffy ever did. Yeah. Yeah, I'm sorry. I just opened my phone and it opened to Twitter, but it was a click coal article. But all I saw was the image which is this. Medical marvel meet that thirty year old man who never lost his baby DOE. But it is really. Is really just pinkie toes. Why would flinch. Good work. Click your good work. Click all that was a good one seen. I won't go off on this tangent for sure. But have you seen the video of people talking like heart warming stories about the first time people realized the joke of Bart rude? No, but you wanna those? They do a lot of those time. I hope fucking funny on in our writer's room. We're referencing like every single day after we watched it. Yeah, you look it up listeners. Look it up yourself. Treat yourself to a good time. Watch it three times today. Twitter was literally making these sick like I was just like sick from seeing social media.

Yeah, it's sickening is too sickening. It's it's. I'd ever. It's just horrible. This is horrible. Good. No. So I think, yeah, don't worry about leaving behind not going on social media, the offer a bit, I think. Yeah, I think I wanna like just skip it for a couple days. Social media truly does make me. It makes their times when I can't like mentally handle it, and it really makes me sick. It makes me tired. Makes me like afraid of nothing. Yeah. No, I just get like panic. Constant panic. Yeah. I've like my feelings like this week have been like basically, like I'm on the verge always like all day of like screaming, but also like I have to throw up like literally like I need to throw up like throwing up slush screaming slash crying, but I don't really do any of those. But then in my sleep, I've been like, weep. Ping in my sleep for like, I don't know what I'll wake up crying. I hope God and like its most because I've been having like straight up horror film dreams, like horrifying horrifying dreams about like giant spiders and like evil killers and like trying to like stop a killer. And like I had this dream where this killer was trying to stab me with something, and I grabbed the blade. And so fucking real, like the blade in my hand because I was grabbing it, I know, and then I'm dead in my dream, but nobody believes me. Nobody believes they got me about being dead. They're like, you're not dead. I'm like, I am. And then you look crazy women believe. Tell you there does. I mean, they just don't believe me that I'm a ghost and it's just not fair. Yeah. I mean, if you have any kind of history with ghost leanness. Was going to say. Sexual assault manager about time to be online? Yeah, it is. Yeah, it is a bad time. I think like I I was looking at my calendar because I was like, I need a figure out a time where I can like literally like run away to Wales for like a week and just like be whatever cut off cut off and not talk to anybody. Yeah. 'cause I just need to refresh in like purge, whatever sickness is in my brain right now. Yeah, and it's like great that everybody is sharing their experiences so that people can see how fucking comedies. Yeah.

And it's, it's like, we'll make you say it physically ill, like sick to my stomach to a point where like I don't feel like eating anything. But then I do eat. And then once I start eating, I'm like, I need to eat everything. It's just like a whole, you know, it's just this whole thing.

Absolutely everything that comes out of your mouth. Yes. Once you start, you can't stop you like you're not. Seriously, like bennys are like Pringles. If you start doing a bit, it doesn't matter if you get a bad you if you haven't feeling that's like siren. Silence. It's nobody likes. Nobody likes it. Nobody likes it. You let going keep going. Even even if you can see your partner also doesn't want to be in the bed. No one even if you're way off enough, do it anyway. The conversation starts to go, go away from the bit. You should interrupt and be like, remember when I was doing member when I was doing the bit about the thing. And then because like you had an idea that you weren't able to get out it didn't hear it back to explain it and keep going. Yes, harder. That's how you do it. That's eighty bits and that's why we have. And that's how you that's how that's why we have one friend in that each other. Sometimes. We have sometimes one friend each other. Yeah, it's okay. So. Then. Okay. What I was very surprised by the turn it took when they found Rohan kestrel in Jade eating Madera. Yeah. When so they, they see Roman Castrol j. moving and opals body into the forest because they realized that like maybe too close to have it in the garden. Yes. And when they're hiding there hiding in the goat Pence, they smell like goats. So that's why they can't detect the been followed by humans. And they watched them attack a deer and they're like OPEC. They're literally eating a deer raw with their hands and mounts, and and you think that they're all going to, there's gonna be a fight or chaser something, and then like it's very tencent and Marcus, like j what are doing and she's like, what are you doing here? It's like, why are you can smell because they smelling goats and like, should we kill them? I guess we have to kill them and then they talk about it. Yeah, but Mark going Jeet. What are you doing?

Maryland is like holy. Fucking shit. Okay. I got trying sneak up on them or something like I gotta we gotta just get near them and I can hit them with a flashlight. She's not able to do that new instead. They're stopped her. I got so annoyed with Mark when he did that. I get that. He's like. Thing it is the right thing. But when he does it and scream door, her was like, shut up work. We're tired of you and Jane. You stupid little fifteen year old. He's he's such a little fifteen year old eighty it. I love how the whole talking. They're like we're vampires here. Humans. This is a problem marketer like nowhere in LA. Oh, and then they're like, oh, and there's this thing is so is that what we have and everyone's like, no, you know, you're not tell Maryland at is tipped off that she and ask are, but. So she she feels a kinship with Rohan because it's like we're both protective big sister. And she liked turns the rowing in his like we've got a fucking Romeo and Juliet on our hands. But like rowing did not hear her at all. And. Yeah, it is pretty funny how she's like. I feel this very intense connection to run like we're almost wavelength. Someone is like finally equal and every time she tries to like, say some Rohan Rohan like does not hear her like ruins just like I have other worldly things about, like, sorry, I'm still trying to process whether or not I'm literally going to kill you. I didn't catch your Shakespeare joke. She doesn't make a lot of Shakespeare jokes. She thinks she's so inspiring. She's very well read, that's the other thing is like that was she keeps quoting Shakespeare. Oh, yeah. So I was thinking I was like, damn, this is super pride and prejudice and then yet outright.

Well, so the Brian, oh, talk about their blood. We had forgot to mention that you guys that they're like portly empire for a second, do a blood exchange because. But packed, I guess because then they're bound by blood and their families attack teach other. That's what they do because they found out about the night world. That's the like way that they resolve the standoff. Yes. Oh, that was what I was saying. What beam Sung's. I just going to say that's the thing I didn't see coming how I thought it was going to be a big old chase and showdown, and instead they all stop and then become tied to one another by blood. And they're like family. And I was like, I don't see that coming. and then it's kind of like dot, dot, dot, right. Because, okay. So the whole thing is ashes sent out there to kind of like get his family together, right, and bring them back tonight world. And he's brought there with Quinn who's like the most telepathic we empire bike case. Why didn't he see through everything? I was wondering because at the end they lied him and it's fine cash too hot asked must have a high like, oh, he's able to action. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. He must be able to really look wall off his brain, like the thing that's nape teaches hairy clemency, yes, to try and stop. Fulton Morgan voldemort from going in his brain, getting sweet memories get getting little boy memories. I don't know. Sweet sweet memories. Get those memories and young scarred boy like incubus. Beautiful creatures. Oh, I gotta eat streets. I thought you meant because we were. We're in a very musical, you know, like the song Dr. So hard to speak a little. Why? Because it represents the guy that I was dating that my view, the guy was dating the very bad guy that like, oh, all to me. Well, it was very obsessed with and we would like make me listen to it like nonstop. Just thinking. Like all the time. Will double fuck that guy. So that's I have like anti incubus. I think ordinarily I would be like, oh yeah, that's just like music from like when I was younger person guy, that salted me Radiohead was playing. Yeah, eighty real nineties. Yeah. Salt music. That's like early two thousand. Only that they play at Fred fifty two or sixty two is ninety salt music. Like I like 'em constantly like on the brink of hangup can panic attack and it's like Hank you this a black hole sun. Whatever the fuck. Yeah, guy that's dead. Now. Peter Fonda, Nell. Chris cornell. An yeah, didn't. He, hey, Siri is Chris Cornell. Dead Cornell died may eighteenth two thousand seven, Lisa last year, sad Detroit that Soundgarden audio slave. That's right. It was black hole sun, Soundgarden audio slaves, soccer, I think. Right. And then all you say it was like. Assam thing. Indies assault music and yeah, so don't couldn't Francis unless you want to get your. While you're eating some so many good. I will say to repeat that is Twitter and Fred sixty to read sixty two restaurant only in Lewisville those fields, California. Oh, just if you're in the area and they only play the nineties assault music like after eight pm to sing. So this only applies if nineties assault music is your is your something right? There's UN's of different types of salt music. Yeah, anything could be playing. Anything are assault. Music is nineties, like early his like early thousand who's like kind of an amusing immune, then? Yes. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And person who like if they were in high school is like I'm in the music. So I listened. Yes, yeah. And then Radiohead, if you're like on the pretentious, you're more pretentious Verschoor. But I will say there's a lot of salters that listen to like both of those. I would say minded, listen to both those, but Radiohead was not playing, I think so. But also the fun thing about being a sexual predator is that you can be into any kind of music. Yeah, you can be in any kind of muses like very open and there can be people like all over the world that you've affected like like it was a blip to you and nothing, but like they like just from like hearing a song, we'll be thrown into a fit of paralysis and dress induced magical. It's real. I mean, it's just like it's the butterfly. It's like, can you spell like any magical? It's like, occurs. Like it's like a charm, but like an evil charm. Yeah. Has been placed upon you? Yes. And it's like it's like it's like like a cursed object that like anyone who touches you is then like, oh yeah, a little bit of it rubs off on their life is affected by. Yeah. And you pretty strong spell yet? Like really like you as an assaulter should just be destroyed and buried? Yeah. Like like you say around? Yeah, because usually find your fine.

While you think about things that you've done to. Remember when I was sixteen and I had my little Ford ranger, and Jen, and I were trying to get to I think Cleveland, and we ended up getting lost in godly. So this is out in the middle of nowhere down here in Texas. So we were on our way back, of course, back then there were no cellphones. There was no map. There was no nothing. We just hope for the best. We were coming around the corner not a corner, but it was like a Kerr part of the road. And when we did we went up onto wills. My driver's side. And we ended up we didn't flip or anything like that. But it was very scary. And we ended up like turning around in the middle of the road weaned landed in somebody's yard. And it was thank God somebody's yard because we hadn't seen a house in a few miles and the family came out and helped us I'd blown a tire, and they helped us get it off and everything else.

I am always fascinated when I had the opportunity one to talk to anybody that is in the Hollywood movie making business. But specifically when I get an opportunity to talk to the guys that I think really make the movies that I enjoy in. That is the Hollywood stuntman professional stunt men and women who don't really ever get to see their faces in. So they're the Hollywood heroes. It can kind of go through undetected in obscure. And I got one of the great ones on the phone with me today. Mr. Eddie Braun, Eddie how you doing man? Hey, chad. How are you? Thank you for having me on your show. I can't wait to talk to you about some of this stuff. You got some incredible success with the movie that you've just come out with. We'll talk about that. We're going to get into that. But I I I've had some opportunity we talked about it before we came on the air here. And we had the opportunity to spend some time with some professional stunt men and. I always ask them the same question. You guys have got to be crazy right actually chat. I am far from crazy. I'm I'm a pretty regular do it all I'm not that. Crazy. I love doing it. Because there's a big difference in our mutual friend. Walter Scott told me a long time ago. He said, you know, he said our goal is is to not get hurt. We do everything to not get hurt in professional stunt men and women we're not dare-devils. We're out there. Trying to do this in live to to do it another day in how did it in the world? Did you get started with this? Well, let me start out Chad by defining. You know, people say, hey, you go to work, and you don't wanna get hurt of when I go to work. I always get hurt. Injured right. Always get hurt going to work. It's like a professional boxer or professional football player if he's successful. He gets hurt every week, right? There's a difference for being hurt and being injured. They're clear difference shares. So would producers and people say, hey, we don't want you to get hurt doing as well. I can't do it that. Well, what do you mean? You can't do it falling to the ground or crashing through that wall. Hurts you know, you just not to get injured. So there there's a difference of her versus injury. Right. That makes makes complete and total sense. And there's a skilled of that. There's an art to it. I'm sure. Well. Yeah. If you're not halfway decent at it. You won't be doing it. But yet I got started as a kid. I was very fortunate to meet evil knievel. And and I don't know if you know much about evil knievel but back in the in the seventies. Every kid wanted to be. I mean, the man wore a Cape everybody be like him. So I met him as a kid. I don't Oz nine ten years old. And from that moment on I did not want to be anything else. But like evil knievel that was kind of like the thing that motivated me into now from that. I started racing motorcycles and whatnot. Which led to me starting as a professional stuntman at the age of seventeen. Well, if you've just all of a sudden decide, hey one day, I'm going to this. I want to do a career. I mean, there's I'm gonna make a career out of being a stuntman. Well, I didn't really know when I was seventeen and back then in the early one thousand nine hundred eighty or so people really did not know what a stuntman was. I mean, this was before behind the scenes and cable TV and anything. So so Stutman were kind of a an obscurity. No one really knew what? And who they were. I just knew I wanted to do something really cool and because of meeting evil. Evil as the child because of my motorcycle background. It led me to meet people. Like, I said it seventeen I got in with a bunch of old Cowboys, and they had me do my age was great at the time being the kid. So they'd let me do a couple of things which led to another couple of thing before I knew it. I was like getting regular checks and making money Hollywood stuntman, and it was bitching. I know that when I was a kid back through the seventies. And eighties. We always I agree with you. We all wanted to be able able we spend our days on our dirt bikes in on our motorcycles and on skateboards, my brothers. And I in lead leave we grew up way down in the woods. So we had to find ways to entertain ourselves. So we spent our time jumping over firewood and trash cans and each other and doing everything that we could how could we take a fall off of the house? It's a miracle. We never broke our next, but I can tell you it never crossed my mind at anytime to think, hey, I want to do this professionally now my brother, I think he did. But my brothers just always been. No skill whatsoever. Just a death wish I think, but. I admire the profession so much. Well, my first foray actually knew it was after meeting able can evil I promptly I think two or three weeks later got on my schwinn Stingray and tried to jump trash cans, which led to a hell of a crash, and I broke my right arm. And that was my like. You know, I thought hey, I was cool. I was like evil knievel. But I don't think I wanted to be like him like every other kid in the seventies. I don't think I made a conscious that thing that, hey, I'm going to become a Hollywood stuntman. I mean, it just it was a natural progression of being in the right place at the right time. And a lot of luck soon. After a first couple of stunts that I was paid for will. Then it was like, okay, I'm going at this full tilt boogie here. And like I said, I I been working nonstop since I was seventeen years old as a professional Hollywood stomach, and you have one incredible resume. I mean, everybody has anybody. That's watched a movie has seen you whether they know it or not an Esa thing. I think you've even made the claim, you know, the folks folks don't ever see your face. You know, how does that how does that resonate with you in that role? There's a very good reason that I'm a stunt man and not an actor. But I don't need that kind of debt kind of attention. In fact, my film is called stuntman the face. You never see you. Don't see my I've made a career out of you not saying my face. And that's okay. For me. It's not it was never about that. That's also the difference. That's also the difference between a professional stuntman and a daredevil dare-devils such as evil knievel was a daredevil they do things for their own glory and professional stuntmen. They're kind of part of a team, and they're usually glorifying someone else by their access. I've never I've never needed that kind of attention. I said, hey, just make sure you spell my name right on the check. Just I've never I've never there's a very good reason. I named my rocket the evil spirit and not the Eddie Braun. It really wasn't about me. And I mean that in all seriousness. Let's talk a little bit about that. Because there's so many questions that I is so many questions I want to get into. But before we go any further. Let's let's talk about the big thing that we are referring to in. That is the documentary film that you made with Dwayne Johnson, and Danny Garcia seven bucks production called stunt, man. Tell us about that process. What your motivation was and what you hope to accomplish in the purpose of the movie. I don't wanna give anything away for anybody who I don't want to give the wrong things away. So you tell me about it. Well, I'm not worried about giving away. Obviously, I lived. I mean, you know, what happened to Hannah? But everybody loved the film, you know. The whole reason for me to start as a stuntman and having thirty five plus years that I'm very proud of of the work that I've been fortunate enough to be able to be a part of you know, what I got in this business and elder stomach that said to me, and it really stuck with me and says you never really retire from this business this business retires. You another words that stuck with me as an aging stuntman. You know, I've always I'm the guy that you never wanna be the last guy at a party, Joe always wanna leave the Artie before the party ends on your asked to leave. And I thought to myself after after all my years, you know, one of the reasons the whole reason I became a stunt man was because of Mr. knievel what better way what kind of fitting mic drop? Would it be if I could complete not do what he didn't do? But finish what he started which is a nine thousand nine hundred seventy four those that no evil knievel, he attempted. His most audacious grandiose stunt, which was to try and cross the snake river canyon in Idaho. Twin falls in a an essence a rocket. He he attempted it. And unfortunately, he was unsuccessful. I won't say people said he failed. I don't think he failed. I just think he was unsuccessful, and I can tell you how miserable. It was. No wonder he never went back to do it again. Awful. But personally for me, I thought what better way as a mic drop, Mike career to pay all mosh to the man that inspired me and a whole generation in the first place. What if I could complete the snake river canyon, jump so lo and behold, I never knew how difficult it was going to be but five years in the process, and a lot of blood, sweat, and many many tears I was able to in pretty much the same rocket in the same place. I crossed the canyon and surived and the whole process, we filled it in and made a movie out of it called the stuntman. Right. But the whole the whole reason for doing it was two two reasons actually I have four four kids, and I wanted through actions not words, but through actions, I wanted to show my kids that you could do something so epic. If you work. Really hard. You can do something so epic as even fulfill the dream of your hero. If you just work, really hard. So it served a lot of purposes for me to attempt to do this and documented and not that was the innocence. It was to pay them is to to Mr. knievel and to show my four kids that you could do something pretty ethically. Cool if you've just worked really hard. I gotta admit that's pretty ethically. Cool. I'm really is. It's an amazing. It was an amazing job that you did it. So, you know, and I watch I can remember watching the documentary back about evil knievel. I probably watch that in the last year or two and they were talking about that. And the things that you know, were unsuccessful about that jump where do you think that it went wrong for him? When he did that was just the the the execution of it. Or was it the technology of what was used or what do you think? Well, I mean, listen, we get speculate all day long on the reasons and this is in that. You. I don't know. I honestly don't know. Was it technical was you who knows what I do know. Is it sucked doing? And I understand why never went back to do it again that I can tell you firsthand. Yeah. It was awful. I'd never do it again in my life. Is awfully intense. And I can only imagine what the g force of something. Like that was in the cockpit of that. Well, I chat I can actually tell you. I went we put little meters inside it went from zero to four hundred thirty nine miles an hour in less than three seconds while suffered. I suffered eight geez. How I didn't pass out. I don't know but jet I IP blood for three days afterwards. Yeah. When everybody was in the bar celebrating that evening, I was in the hotel room, puking and teeing blood. Herbal. But it's not the way that. I pretty much smashed everything on the inside. It was it was really bad. It will. So so I understand why Mr. knievel never wanted any part of that again. Well, then is the ultimate mic drop. Eddie, honestly that is for incredible. Like, I said chat. I for me. Personally, it just felt really good finishing out something that my heroes started. It's the only way I could acquaint it too is a lot of everybody came up to. And it really bothers me. Hey, you did what evil knievel could do. And that really bothers me. I always felt like if a closer comes in and the eighth inning pitching does. That mean the other pitcher socked, no, they're all part of the same team for me. It was just personally satisfying to finish out my heroes, drain it. What point in time? You look at a project like that. You say, okay. I feel pretty confident in my ability to survive this or to not experience major injury. I mean, I how confident were you were you went into this? I gotta tell you a maybe it's my cockiness. Maybe it's who knows. What is I figured, hey, I could probably pull this off. And then the and then the minute I said it everybody looked at me and said really, and then I said, oh crap. Now, I have to because. I can open my mouth there were. I will. I will say there were varying degrees at certain times where I thought I could do it and thought I can't do it. But I'm into deep and I can't back out now, which is probably what Mr. knievel felt as well. I mean, I've always been a guy that tried to live by let your yeses be. Yes. And your nose be no. And and you know, what I mean, sometimes you gotta put your money where your mouth is. And or your ass where your mouth is pretty much everything else where your mouth is you just better back it up, especially as a stunt, man. So. You know, there were there were times. I'd say oh crap. What did I get myself into other times that arrogantly I'd say, I got this. You know, if it doesn't kill me. I got in jumping the snake river canyon, obviously, you were honoring evil knievel's legacy. But you you did a little bit more than that as well. Talk to talk to us a little bit about Scott treks in the process of building that rocket. Here's where the story really really has has deep meaning, and maybe people will see it in the film. You know? I'm just some schmuck that medi look at it as a kid, and you know, he inspired me, but but the true acts family Bob trucks, who was a world renown like rock scientists Bob treks is the guy that evil knievel contacted to build his rocket. And and Bob true ash. Had this great career of successful. I mean, he was one of the founding of NASA. So now, he builds a rocket for evil knievel. And now he's in the public eye and this. This thing doesn't get across the canyon. So for the true acts family, that's always he's been famously known for this failure of a rocket while at the same time. Mr. Bob trucks, had a son Scott trucks is about my age. So what he was a little kid. His dad was building evil's rocket. Well, when that was unsuccessful Detroit ex family has had to live with this failure. That's kind of like hung over the family name. I was able to hook up with Scott to us who who is what a sweetheart and a gentleman that guy is and in hooking up with them. He told me, hey, I can build you. I still have spare parts from the original rock, and I can build you the same. I have my dad's blueprints. I have everything if you have the wherewithal to want to attempt this think you can I can replicate the exact rocket, and I went, wow. I mean. That was then it was really getting cool. So we teamed up together Scott, and I and off of his father's spare parts and off of his father's blueprints built me pretty much fit form and finish the same exact rocket. It was at a time warp from nine hundred seventy four this was not a modern carbon fibre and computer kind of thing. This is built with duct tape and a crescent wrench and a hammer. I mean in. Wiley Coyote, but very effective in the process of me making it across kind of cleared the true axe name and showed that Bob drew axe built a rocket. That would in fact across time to put my expert and on for a minute. And I'm want to tell you what you need to know about pooping in case, you might have forgotten proper toilet.

You know, look at the canyon the canyon is so wide. And so massive I mean, it scared me to death just looking at it the the canyons a quarter mile wide. Well, because no one had ever done this before we didn't know the full power of this rocket. I mean, we estimated but I literally went about five thousand two hundred and something feet, which is a mile. I cleared the canyon by a mile pretty much. The thing is going to send me into the next county. Take what probably what would right? Probably had the power to do it. You know? And I look at this thing and watch the video of the job, and it's just so impressive. And just so greasy to do that. And I have to ask myself. You know, how do you prepare for that other than the tech building the rocket, and I'm just pray and get in a how much preparation can go into that you pray. Q you buddies hands and say, you know, if it goes good, I'll see on the other side. And if it doesn't go good nice, knowing you, I mean, no, I mean, listen again, I'm not a crazy guy. I had a pretty pretty good level of confidence that that this would work. That's what I kind of looked at it not from a daredevil perspective. But from a stunt coordinator perspective to me, if you take out all the hype and all the sentiment out of this thing. This was just another like action sequence that we do in movies. It really was it was like, okay. Get from point a to point b and survive it how do you do this now? So I looked at it more like a technician like a stunt coordinator. Alright, you gotta do this this this and this, and if you do those things correctly, and you pray a lot you should get this outcome. And that's exactly how how I did it again, I was being Trish. About three shots at Kiel. Trust me. I listen I want three shots and tequila just watching the video. Amazing. I wanted to I wanted approach this thing also like like, a gentleman and pay honored evil knievel. And I know that evil knievel did a did a couple of shots of his wild Turkey before he got his rocket. I also wanted to if you know, the story of the Titanic. There was a band a band that played all the way down the sinking ship and they wore the finest tuxedos. They knew they were going down. But they wanted to be they wanted to be gentleman about it. And I thought okay, I've got a core group of guys here. And I'm about to climb into this thing at the very least I wanted to approach this like a gentleman we are going to as gentlemen, do a toast, maybe three of them off I go. So it was kind of a there was a lot of for me. A lot of sentiment involved in just climbing in this thing after the thing was over. What was your emotion coming out of that obviously some relief in? I'm sure some excitement and celebration. But, but what was what was the raw emotion? The raw motion was very surreal to add. It was very surreal. Once I once I realized here was the beauty about landing so far away. I didn't have a lot of people rushing in to. To like confuse me with everything right? Actually got a few moments to myself sitting there in that open field. You know, first of all my brain had to catch up with what really happened because traveling at that speed that fast that quickly you're moving faster than your brain can really comprehend things. Right. It was very surreal moment to realize a that. I had survived it and be that I just completed my heroes dream. I mean, evil knievel had said it. So so prophetically that it's been forty two plus years since anybody tried crossing that canyon. The thing hasn't moved an inch. And no one has has been able to to get to the other side in that manner. So it was very surreal John. That's that's all I can call. It was very surreal sitting there by myself as I see people in the distance coming to me. Yeah. I can only imagine something like that. But I would have to guess I would say. We all have our fears are phobias and fears. I'm sure you're no different from that. I'm sure you don't operate in just a complete fearlessness. I would I would assume that probably not the scariest thing you've ever done as probably other things that you have done that you took your breath away more than even this avail. Or was this the biggest one let me start off by being really honest here. I'm scared to death of I'm like the anti stomach. Here's I'm scared to death of heights. I was petrified doing this thing. And you know, I've always told my kids every time I go to work. I'm doing I'm getting scared of something there is nothing wrong with being scared. It's how you deal with your fears that define the man that you are you do cower. Do you run from them or do you confront them and deal with them? So, you know, I was ter I'll be honest. I was terrified of doing this terrified. It it went about three thousand feet up in the air. And I told you I'm scared of heights so three thousand feet in a basically a little tin can that's held together with sub rivets duct tape. And and basically. Yeah, I was petrified. And obviously, obviously you had a parachute on the rocket. Do were you wearing a personal parachute yourself in case? The thing came apart. No, there was no room in this thing. This thing was so crammed. It was like being an if you're claustrophobic forget it was like being zipped up in a sleeping bag. That's too small for you with your arms inside. Yeah. It was miserable. So there were there would be no parachute. For me. I did have a fear. If I ended up in the water that I would drown because I would never have been able to get out of this thing. Fast enough. Yeah. See that's where that's where you'd get me right there with the claustrophobia, and then the landing in the water. I would have every every fear every potential scenario running through my head. It'd be horrible. How long how long were you in the actual rocket before it took off? Here's the thing that I had to refer back to my stuntman profession. I was in the thing. Probably in mind, you Chad. This thing is now when it's hated up and loaded up, it's a bomb. It's a high pressure bomb, and I had to sit in the sink probably for half an hour to probably forty minutes. I sat on this bomb as its hissing and making noises while they set the cameras while they they do all sorts of other things in it's hot. It's claustrophobic. It's uncomfortable. I'm I'm at fifty six degrees, which is almost pointed straight up and down. I'm scared to death. It was awful. And I had to sit there for like thirty minutes. Forty five minutes being that miserable that in and of itself sucked. Yeah. I can only imagine that. I'd be out right there. I couldn't do it. Cut me out of this thing. I was not let's put it this way shot. I have not nor do I ever intend to climb into that rocket again out of it. I said that's enough. You know, other people are they'll feel three client. And then it if they want to, but there's no reason in the world that I can think of that I will ever climb into that rocket again, it was that of a great entertainment. I'm glad you did it, and you guys you took home the audience award for documentary feature at the Los Angeles film festivals. Congratulations on that you expect for it to be that that will receive. No, I did not to be perfectly honest. Here's you know. People ask me is your movie good is it bad. How is it? And I gotta tell you. It's really hard to be objective about a movie that's about you. I mean what I say. Here's what I will say. I can't tell you. Whether it's good or it's bad. But I'm very proud of every frame of foot. I'm proud of it. Okay. I'm really proud of it. And and when we. He presented this thing at the film festival when we debuted it I had no idea that it would win the audience award. I mean, I was shocked. In fact, I had no speech when they announced that I had one I went up there. Crying like a little twelve year old child. All I could say to them was that. I bet you've never seen a grown stuntman cry before. I didn't know what to say. It was like, no, I did not expect that I went home that it's I would hope that it's well received only because it's honest, and it's pure, well, I can tell you know, anybody that wants to check it out you can Google stuntman movie. And it's going to be one of the first things that pops up, and you can see the trailer for them only the trailer isn't tits. Well, thank you. I hope I hope and pray that it's well received. Again. I don't know I've done everything that I can do what I can say is. I'm proud of it. I left everything on the field. You almost all over the field. Eddie. Exactly that that could have been the outcome. But not chat. I'm very proud of the film. I hope that when people see it they'll at a very least whether they like it or not they'll they'll feel that it's genuine, and so we're looking at it being released somewhere early in twenty one thousand nine hundred and it's called stuntman the face. You never see. That's great. That's great. It's going to be. I can't wait to see it myself. Are you still are you still working doing stunt coordinating? Or you are y'all done. Well, gee, I gotta tell you since I wanted this film to be exactly the way that it is that meant putting my money where my mouth is. So basically, I sell finance the film is what so the long and the short of it. No, I soon as I'm done here with you having me on your wonderful show. I'm going out as a stunt, man. Again, and working. I mean, I'm I'm I spent all my money on this movie. It's if it's well received at least I break, even and I retire, but for right now yet, I'm still out there getting beat up, and I'm not complaining, I love my job. But I won't be too disappointed. When it's time for me to completely hang I understand, I understand, and I can only imagine and I- hands down wholeheartedly encourage all the phone. We have a couple of hundred thousand people that listen weekly to this podcast. And we'll hear it this week. And I'm telling you, I encourage everybody be on the lookout for this thing. It's going to be is just incredible. And and I'm pretty pretty proud for you, actually. But I mean you've done so many movies and you've done so many different things. So many projects. Have you enjoyed the process of it over the years. Oh, yeah. I've loved every minute of it. I mean, it's been unbelievably awesome and fun. And I mean, I'm so thankful for my job. And the opportunities given me it's like, it's all the probably better than being a rockstar because. Because I get to do so many different things and get in for it. Of course, there's days that you go John this. But by and large, it's been wonderful, and I'm very thankful that I've had the opportunity, but it is time for me to kind of hang it up, and maybe through this film. It will allow me to be my mic drop, and I can quietly just disappeared into obscurity, which is fine. By me. Sure. I understand. I understand have you. You know, we I mentioned alluded to our friend Walter Scott in those guys the Scott brothers. And I know that they've done a lot of westerns and things like that. Did you have a throughout your career? You had a certain specialty stunt type of stunt. You've enjoyed doing more than others or felt like it was more your your expertise. Or is it just general all of them know, my my forte. Fortunately has been cars, and I liked that. Because I get a lot of metal around me. I have done all kinds of stunts from motorcycles to falls to burns to a you name it as a stunt guy. You better be prepared for a whole gamut of things, but I prefer cars because at least I'm insulated by the beating sometimes in a car, so that's kind of been my forte. But you know, like, I said, it's it's time. No matter what it is. It's probably time that I kind of hanging up leave it for the younger younger kids to do. It's intense. And I think it's only getting more and more intense as movies go on. On. So I encourage everybody like I said go out when you get the opportunity. You know, do, you know, do you have an idea of what the general range of release is going to be for the documentaries? You're going to be in theaters. Is it going to be? Yeah, I believe it will be a theatrical release at first, and then it'll go from tropical to you know, to the television, however, the screaming and all those things that's probably believe and one thing I can say about the film, you know, you were talking about action films these days, I'm a little jaded because I it just drives me crazy personally to seal the computer generated imagery, I hate that stuff. Right. Personally won against say about my film. There's not one in Hance -ment, computer, generated in is as real as it gets every stunt in. My movie is real every stunt that you see the action from the rocket to the several the other Stutz, you'll see they're all real there's no computer imagery there. And I'm quite proud of that as well. I mean, you know, it's about as real as the gets. Yeah. And this coming from from guy who's done stunts and everything from transformers to the avengers. I was joking with some friends recently about that latest avengers movie. I said I think the reason the whole never really showed up is because they ran out of money creating everything with a computer, they didn't have the budget for the hook ship. And I'm very old school. I like real action. I like real stuff. I'm so over the whole computer generated crap it's not real and to me, it doesn't even look real. So, you know, my hats off to all the people that love that stuff. That's great. But but for me personally, gimme some real intense real car chases, real crashes real stuns, you know, my films the films that I like my action films. Sometimes very from. What people think is there popular action Phelps, you know, because I like real I like the real stuff. Yeah. I agree with you, and you can tell when it's it's fake. I mean, it's it's overdone. It's it's computer generated or it's a special effect or something like that. And I agree with you. I don't like that at all. I think it takes away from so much of the story. I people all the time. So hey, you know, what are some of the proudest films you've worked on and my answers would be different. Than what they would expect me to say, you know, this films. I've worked on myself that I'm quite proud of that aren't really big blockbuster hits. But but the action looks great in them. What are they because I might have to watch them. Haven't seen him already seen him. I'm always running out of movies to watch. Well, I'll tell you a great sleeper movie that that I'm really proud of the car chases, so intense, and it's a movie called the town. Ben affleck. And it's called the town with Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner and need is grabbing we do a car chase in in Boston. That's unbelievable. Gary Himes who's a buddy of mine. The second unit director stuck coordinator that I mean, he put us. He he he turned us loose on this car chase with police cars, and it's it is not always a good movie and bending did a great job directing. But it's an intense car-chase, and I'm really really proud of it. It's a high stakes there. There isn't any computer generated imagery there either. It's just intense seedier payouts. So that's that's one of the film's. I'm really proud of him. Very fortunate to have been a part of called the town. I can't can't stress enough. Go have a pecan and tell me think right movie great movie. No question about it. I. You know in. I know that different different actors in actresses out there of times, we'll want to say, well, you know, I want to do some of my own stunts. And I know that's gotta be hugely frowned upon. How how often do you get the pushback on that from from actors? I mean is that even still thing or they say, no, we're going to let the stunt man. Do it. First of all, I was stuck coordinator of all three of the Jackie Chan, the rush hour films in Jackie, you know, he was raised in the circus that guy is more talented than than a lot of stunt men in the business, and he could easily do the things very if not better than some of the guys out there. Here's the thing the actors all wanna do it, you know, and part of that is ego part of that is skill. But this is a business after all and these actors are commodities, and if they get hurt it really messes a lot of people's find it financially. It's just not the smartest thing to do. Even if they're capable of doing it. There's no reason stunk. I can go out and do it. And and everybody gets along fine. It's hard to get actors. Then you get actors that claim they do their own stunts. And that's like, okay, buddy. If that's all you want to, you know, go. That's okay. There's a few of those then there's other actors that say, I don't do any of it. I let my guard. I'll tell you one guy that they'll be the first guy to tell you. He doesn't do hardly anything. And that's Charlie Sheen who will have doubled Charlie's the first guy to say, dude, I got a guy that kind of looks like me, and he doesn't he doesn't that doesn't. And you know, much to his credit. That's great. I mean, that's so different than other. They do it. And then and then they really kind of don't. And then there's actors like Tom Cruise that listen he'd make the acting thing doesn't work out for him. He'd be make a hell of a stuntman. Well, any broke his ankle in the last mission impossible that happened. You know, Michael, Jordan. He misses baskets every now, and again, you know, that happens you've just got to be prepared to pay the price. You know, Tom. Listen, he's done. Some I've worked with Tom on several subs. He's a great guy, and he's very handy and talented, but you know, what he's going to miss a few baskets now. And again, you just be ready to pay the price. Yeah. That's in that scene. I was out in Hollywood a few weeks ago. We were we were having lunch in we were talking with one of my friends television writer, and we were talking about Tom, and he is a great guy. And we were talking about that scene where he messed up his ankle. And he's still got up in Finnish. Out the scene. You know, he kept on running even on that ankle with it messed up, and you can actually see where it gets messed up in that deal. You know, he was out for a little while from that. But that's a crazy crazy thing. Like, I said, you just never know. It's one of those diesel if the whole acting thing doesn't work out for Tom. You know, he's got a pretty bright future. A stump, man. It's such a fascinating thing. The movie business is a fascinating fascinating world. And you know, I think it's the stuntman that, you know, make it great. I go all the way back to the only major show. I used to love watching that, you know. You can't say that. You know, I worked on the fog. I for many response. That's amazing. That's a lot of fun. Good stuff. Thank you so much for having me on your show. Absolutely. I hope I didn't put your listeners to sleep. Absolutely not. We're encouraging everybody. Go out there.

So we've talked about ghost burial before we've talked about Chinese immortality. And then this is also slightly connected to the episode that we did on or maybe it was too. Besides on mama fixation. Yeah. I feel like we've done to maybe more. I know that we've talked about exploring more and more of the affiliation cultures throughout the world. I know what it is. We we discussed Japanese custom in an episode. Yeah. Oh, and then there's also the the monks that the self mummifying mount. Yes. Those guys that's the other one. So this is a long those lines today. We're gonna be talking about Jade burial suits. And. Once I got done researching this my first thought was this would be a far cooler way to make a new mummy franchise. They've been showing the trailers constantly for that new mummy movie with Tom Cruise. It's coming out this summer, and it looks awful. And I think that this would be a cool mummy like this mummy in this giant suit of Jade armor coming at you. That would be so much fun. Yeah. Because you look at images of this. And there should be an image of one of these suits of Jade, burial armor on the landing page for this episode at stuff to blow your mind dot com. It's it looks kind of like the villain in that first or movie you. Dig suit of adamant armor that he destroyer. Yeah. It looks like the destroyer it's beautiful. And indeed, I could see an eastern mummy franchise really having some fun with this. Yeah. That being said, I did not see the eastern mummy injury or the third or fourth mummy film that came out. Did they do something like that? Or did. Oh, I didn't. I don't know what I have not seen it. I can't speak for the mummy design. Yeah. However, I know there's a scene where yet he's attack. So I really want to watch it for that. I had no idea that even existed. This is like from the nineteen ninety s mummy franchise with a scorpion king. And all that this one is was post scorpion king. Okay. And that's about all I know about. Okay. We'll maybe we'll talk about that one on trailer talk. When we do a Facebook live about these episodes this week. So in this episode, we're going we're going to be exploring practice that that is tied directly to the western Han dynasty, and we're gonna I know a lot of you out there or not. To have a real firm handle on the dynastic Chinese history. Don't worry we're going to route all that weren't needs to be placed in the in the time line shortly. But these suits are, you know, we can call them Jade suits, can call them J armor in the in Mandarin. There's sometimes referred to as you Shah, which are Jade caskets or sometimes you Ye which are Jade garments. And it is essentially a a stone garment if you think on that because because Jade is a stone. And that's probably a great place to start. Really? Let's just discuss what Jade is before we pile on its supernatural connotations and then get into Chinese history. Okay. All right. So Jade is essentially on ornamental green rock, everyone has probably seen something that is either made of Jade or is supposed to be made of Jade, but then what does that even mean? Yeah, I'm thinking of like in the local mall that we have here. There's like a couple like places where you can buy sort of like Chinese themed aesthetic decorations for the home. And usually there's like a piece of Jade in it somewhere, or it might be made of some kind of fake Jade, there's those. I forget what they're called. But they're like red ribbons or a threads. And they've got a piece of Jade woven into them. Oh, yeah. You often see little little rings of j. Yeah. Sometimes sometimes worn by by children in China's still were incorporated into has some sort of direct decoration or or personal adornment. And the the interesting thing here, though, is that whatever you're calling Jade Jade is the name given to two distinct minerals. Neff right and jadeite and in their purest form, either of these is white in Chinese it's referred to as mutton fat Jade, and you'll also have minerals such as iron and chromium that give Jade, it's mini Hughes. So there's not just one color of Jade, it's not like criolla. This is Jade as it up to your stone. And see if it matches between white and like, very green. Yeah. Very an darker greens. Yeah. So let's talk about these two varieties real quick. The the NEF right is sometimes refer to his true Jade, it's very strong. It has more vivid green coloration, and this is the stuff that the Chinese worked with during the Han dynasty, which is what we're going to be talking about today because jadeite wasn't introduced to China until the late sixteen hundreds via Burma. So when we're talking about these pieces of Jade armor, they're made using Neff, right? Not jadeite. Now jadeite on the other hand is more fragile, and it has a brilliant. Gleaming surface when polished now Jd is usually found inside pebbles or boulders where like the rough Stony exterior doesn't really give a clue as to what's in their Jade itself. It can't be chipped or flaked. So it has to be worn down using a rough paste and a combination of rotary discs grinders and tools and during the Han dynasty. This was probably made this paste was made with water grease and sand and then iron tools had been developed specifically for the art and craft of working with Jade to develop and work at further into various forms. So I think this is a good point for me to bring up like, I think here in the west Jade is sort of this very like stereotypical attached idea to like the orient very bound up in orientalists at like, do you? Remember that video game. Game came out. Gosh must have been ten fifteen years ago. Now Jade empire. I played the hell out of that game. Oh was this was a term based RPG? Yeah. It was made by the same people who made the knights of the old Republicans and the dragon age games very similar setup except for this was in had a really cool setting. But it was like a steam punk mythological China, and you know, as such used vary. Let kind of stereotypical pieces from that mythology, but still I mean, I have to admit as much as I love exploring Asian history. I also love fantasy inspired by eight. So. Yeah. So I I should I should check it out a little bit. I don't know. There's one of those where the graphics don't really hold up. I mean, I haven't played it in so long. I think it was I played it on the original XBox? But it was fun. You got like this various group of characters. You would have. I think like three characters at a time that would go on these like sort of dungeon chrome missions. And like one would be a spell it. Very dean D. But it was like we've talked about this on the show before the sort of like racist oriental adventures, where they would like, you know, you'd have a spell caster you'd have a warrior, and you'd have like a ninja or something like that. And they would like go there. It was really just like a fighter a rogue. And a magic user. Gotcha in. Yeah. They'd have these various missions, they'd fight monsters from Chinese mythology. Yeah. It was fun aesthetically. So there's probably a little Jade in there. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I think they the Jade was a big theme. Yeah. Well, Jade is is a big theme in in Chinese traditions. So we should probably discuss what it's supernatural powers without debate. We've we've given a brief overview of its physical properties, certainly you can go in deeper if you want to we're not really a minerals podcast. But there's a lot of great information out there about Jada. That's your thing as as far as supernatural qualities. Go Jade was believed to have. -tective and preservative qualities warding off both decay and evil spirits. I've also read that some believe Ajay darkens as the where gets richer as they get poorer. So it's kind of like a mood ring for your your your financial status. Let's great instead of having like an app on your phone that tells you how your Bank accounts doing you just have like a little piece of Jade like like on one of those head wrist bands. You meet somebody you want to know where they stand you just take a peek of their Jade now, it's also worth pointing out that in terms of just how important Jade is in Chinese tradition and mythology you have you d the Jade emperor. And he stands as the supreme God in the Chinese mythological pantheon. And if you if you actually think back to the episode on the Chinese zodiac stuff to blow your mind did a while back. There's this whole parable of the swimming zodiac animals in a race. And they're racing. For a you d-. Have you seen any of those wushu movies about Dr d I haven't I've made with them by name. But I haven't watched their fun. You should tell them. Now. It's also important to note that Taoist alchemist as well. Put put an emphasis on Jade as part of an immortality. Elixir that also contained gold, silver, arsenic, and other ores, and it was said to provide resistance to aging and decay, in fact in the three twenty see book, pow Puzo, which means the master embracing simplicity, author gay hung wrote that gold and Jade inserted into the nine orifices prevented. Corpses from decaying. Okay. So this comes up a lot today when we're talking about this Jade, burial armor, and I want to establish something here. So I read this, and I went I had account my orifices. And I was like I kept coming up short. I only counted seven. And then I realized they were. Outing the is. Yes. And it might sound kinda grotesque to think of plugs. But they're not like corks the ice August and more like their little shields. It's kind of like when cucumbers on the on the one I was going for was how they would put coins. Oh, young people's eyes that could pay the Ferryman for the river Charen on. But yeah. Yeah. This is obviously different mythology. But it's the same principle is like little Jade shields that went over your eyes. So apparently, I I don't know if I'm wrong or right? But I never thought of my eyes as being orifices. Well, it's it's where the light comes in. It's true. Something's going in there. Now, it's interesting. I mentioned children wearing J bangles earlier. And you you still see this used in China, and the idea here is that this protects the child from harm, including soul separating fright by a demon. And I actually ran across the cool source for this. So if we if we ever want to do an episode on Chinese extra schism. Playing off our past episodes on Xtra schism this would be a good one to seek out. I think that's a hard. Yes. From me audience. Let us know if you're interested in Chinese exercises them now in terms of other associations, some traditional Chinese medicine approaches. Call for the use of Jade massaging tools to help. I was reading about using it on wrinkles on the face. And there are also ingredients with Jade in the name in Chinese traditional medicine that are not actually Jade such as Jade windscreen powder. That's a just a dried root of a particular plan, but it has nothing to do with the mineral itself. So even though like, we're well past this sort of, you know, a myth that Jade has ability to stave off the que it's still used in a lot of those sort of. I guess homeopathic methodologies like I was reading about the one of the ones the ancient Chinese Jade stone being used like, I think they would like wrap it around your neck. It was supposed to help you with TM j. Yeah. I mean, it's ultimately comes down to the idea. The here is this very beautiful cool looking stone that came out of the ground. Surely it's worth keeping around for something. Right. Reminds me of hematite those similar stuff surrounding hematite. Yeah. But just I think in different cultures, and you know, a lot of this bleeds into into other cultures outside of China. I know if you if you happen to visit a Korean sauna, and we have one of these in the Atlanta era, and I'm Jay, Jay. And I love going there. They they have these various saunas that sauna rooms that have different minerals there, and they have one that has Jade in it. And the idea here is that quote Jade increases metabolism improve circulation and relieves arthritis pain. All right now, this is giving me an idea for business, and I'm not very entrepeneurship. So maybe somebody out there can start this. So you combine the Jade sauna idea with the flotation sensory deprivation tank, and you build a sensory deprivation tank out of Jade, and then you climb inside that and you float in salinated water for an hour that would be amazing because that's that's something that's kind of lacking with with float tank scenarios. Yes. They are very very secular. Yeah. Use a little mystical nothing. Yeah. That'd be fun. I'd do it. Yeah. Plug the plug are orifices. With Jay give me nine pieces of Jade. All right. Well, before we get those nine pieces of Jade, why don't we take a quick break. And when we get back we're going to give you a little bit of a run down on the western hun dynasty. Everyone has experienced heartbreak. I'm Fallon in on heartbroken podcast. You'll hear real stories from real men and women discussing their heartbreak we cover so many topics the central focus still being relationships, but occasional episodes feature other forms of heartbreak like the loss of a child or a partner or an abusive relationship. Hopefully, when you listen if you've gone through heartbreaker are going through heartbreak, you feel less alone. You can listen and subscribe at apple podcasts or on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts. We're back. So I realized Chinese dynastic succession can be confusing for folks. And certainly, especially if you're just going from zero trying to go from zero to fifty on it. It's a lot to take. I will admit I mean, as some listeners know, I spent time in China as a kid, I learned Mandarin growing up, and I lived in Singapore during high school in Chinese history is completely lost on me as really tough for me to keep track of. Yeah. I I'm constantly referring back to the chart with the with the dynasties now. I know there's a little song. I've heard people sing this. Okay. Where it's fresh frozen DACA, except it's it's the different dynasties. I have not heard that. Yes. Okay. I when I say, I've heard it. I've I've seen a video with two old white Chinese scholars singing it to other as an example of something. You learn in school when you're learning about Chinese history. Okay. Sorry. So it's like a new monarch device. Yeah. Okay. So we're not gonna throw it all at you. Basically, we're going to go from the beginning of into Lon dynasty just in in throughout the year. So you can place it in the general timeframe. And the Han dynasty is essentially the fourth or fifth dynasty or the second imperial dynasty. It. Ultimately depends on what you count as a dynasty in. This has to do with sort of a legendary mythic time. So start from the beginning. I up you have the Shah dynasty. This is twenty seventy two sixteen hundred BC, and it's largely mythological with some very early bronze age evidence. So yeah, this is the time of gods and heroes. And so this is why some don't actually count this in terms of historical dynasties, but incomes, the Shang dynasty, and this was long considered apocryphal. But he's historians now correlated with oracle bone writings this period takes us up to roughly eleven twenty three BC and the Joe dynasty. Now. This is the first millennium BC, and this is a time of conflict in China in their two periods here that have are of particular note, and that's the spring and autumn from seven twenty two to four eighty one BC and the warring states period for seventy five through to twenty one BC. Okay. So what I'm seeing here? So far is it seems like these dynasties lasts? You know? Roughly around five hundred years. Yeah. Yes. So far now at the end of the warring states period that chin dynasty begins. And this is when the chin kingdom conquered other central Chinese states and became the first truly imperial dynasty under Chin-shu hung, the the first emperor of China. And it was during this rule that the northern border wall was implemented. What we now? Call the great wall, and in the first of many peasant uprisings to to echo through Chinese history Lubang rose up and conquered China to found finally the Han dynasty in two zero six BC e and this was only, you know, fifteen years later. Okay. So this this is where we're zoning in on in terms of this Jade, burial armor being created, right? There's obviously many dynasties afterward. So the Han dynasty is is is big money early on like this is this is again, a time of things coming together of unity. Certainly there are still lots of lingering problems as within a, you know, imperial scenario. But but it's a time where we're there's an there's enough enough riches out there. There's enough specialization that you can have something like a fancy funeral tradition. Take place now overall the Han dynasty, Ryan ran from two. Oh, two or two six until two twenty one see. So we're talking about a pretty long stretch here in at the end of this in two twenty one c that's when everything's splits into the three kingdoms, but we divided the Han dynasty up into the first the former or western Han dynasty and the and also the later or eastern Han dynasty. And that's because in the midst of this this long f- four centuries stretch, you have a rebellion take place. And so basically what happens is a Han dynasty official Wang making seizes power. And and in this. This is referred to as the Xin dynasty nine through twenty three eight d he does a pretty poor job in the Huns reclaimed power in twenty three AD after besieging the imperial palace. He dies in the process. So in other words, you have to four hundred years of Han rule, but there's this one little period where newspaper. Like a twenty year period or actually less than twenty years of this one guy ruling. Yeah. Just getting taken down. So again, this is an influential force injuries in Chinese history. Saw the institution of Confucian norms. The roots of the imperial examination system, the age of great economic technological cultural and social progress Hans still refers to the main Chinese ethnic group. And this is again, also the period that gives us these these amazing Jade burial suits. Okay. So we've teased enough. What's Jade burial suit? Because I think when I first heard about this. My thought was that it was like iron, man. And it was iron man made of Jade, and that's not correct. There's thousands of little pieces in these thing. Yeah. It's between two thousand and four thousand of these little Jade pieces all of its own together. And it's sewn together depending on your station, it might be gold silver or silk while so. Really, the the suit description is probably better. This is a a suit made for a corpse in. It's a suit made of maybe an mostly stone. And maybe gold and silver or silk as well. I can't imagine that a living person could wear one of these in and move. No. Yeah. It'd be incredibly heavy. Yeah. Only a supernatural, you know, dead being right in a Hollywood movie could do it. Now, we referred back to our episode on ghost burial earlier. And and I do want to touch on that real quick. Because one a couple of the ideas we discussed in. There are central to understanding why this much care was taken, you know, for a dead individual. So we discussed the importance of Shiite, I'll the f- fillet O P PD in Chinese tradition is rooted in Dallas to philosophy Confucian family values, and it concerns the undying nature of the human soul. You know, the data live on in the afterlife. And then they're also ties to this Chinese notion of of of structural completeness. Right. That you have this this basic unit of the family, and if everything if anything is out of out of place there it's gonna cause disharmony in your life and potentially in the afterlife. Yeah, we went into far greater detail on this in the ghost burial episode. But I wanted to reference a nineteen ninety-five USA today article that was specifically about the Jade burial suits, and how it referred to this too for western readers. So it claims that tombs in general were thought to be portals between the living and the dead. And basically, the concept was and this is similar to what we went over. And goes burial the sole was divided. There's one part of the soul that goes to heaven the other part stays in the body and the one that's in the body had to be appeased or else it would turn evil while the one that goes to heaven acted on behalf of the loved ones by offering them either protection or good fortune. And this is why the living tried to ensure that the the deceased were well. Headed for in death. So you get very similar death rituals to the assumptions in that leg. People are buried with their things with things that they think will keep them comfortable. Yeah. There's this this mix though with the the ancestor veneration that it's not only is somebody that deserved a proper burial hers to be buried in with the things that they love. This is also someone who can speak on your behalf in the afterlife. But this is an important contact to happen. So you want them to be happy? You wanna do right by them? So the very first one of these suits, which is part of that was documented in literature around AD three twenty, but that's documented in literature. We didn't find them until far afterward. Yeah. It wasn't until nineteen fifty eight that the suit hypothesis here that that these little Jade pieces, we were we were finding we're part of the Jade suit. You know, it was just a theory of the time, and it wasn't until we actually found a a really undisturbed tomb night in nineteen sixty eight two tombs in heavy, and this is where we found tombs undisturbed by looters or mining efforts and resulted in to complete recovered and restored suits of Jade armor in this is quite a story. And if you've, you know, we're gonna talk about this, but museums here in the United States have had these suits one or the other brought around on tour, basically. Right. And so it's possible that you've actually seen one of these sort of restructured and put on display in a museum here in the west. But that's weird to me. I'll talk about it more later after we get through it. But I think it's a little it's it seems slightly offensive to me, especially given the nature of why it was built in the first place. Now, you mentioned restored, and that's key. Because if you see one of these new museum on display, it is almost assuredly restored. Right. Because despite the ideas tied up with Jade Jay doesn't or at least the Jade suit. Is it was executed does not actually preserve the body. So the body ends up rotting away to there's nothing left, but bone the suit collapses, and then sometimes the casket collapses as well on top of it. So everything has to be put back together. Now, you actually have seen one right? Yeah. I think I've seen a couple, but the one that I got to see in China is the one that impressed me the most it was at the museum of the western Han dynasty mausoleum of the Nonoo king and Guangzhou. Okay. So is there with my wife, my my my newly acquired son. He was not impressed at all as I stroll them around Stroh held though, he was like two or three one and a half. Oh, yeah. He was not having any of it. But but the tomb was was really impressive for me. Anyway, it was hidden twenty meters. Sixty five point six feet under. Ground and the the king. Himself was covered with with with a silk and two thousand two hundred ninety one pieces of Jade to compose his suit and the whole tomb really had the feel just a cosmic vessel. And this was the sued of a of a netra, not, you know, you have a very much in keeping with with the feeling that I get from from any kind of gyp shin artifacts. Now, a number of other such Jade suits, accompanied by hordes of silks, lacquerware figurines and bronzes you'll find these displayed in many Chinese museums. They turn up as you pointed out in international collections, and traveling exhibits, an a and nineteen Eighty-three count from the institute of archaeology and Beijing claimed ten thousand Huntoon had been discovered and this resulted in twenty tombs with Twenty-three Jada suit remain. All right. We're gonna take a quick break. And then when we come back, we'll jump right back into it. Jury. Louis v wife dead. Sid and Nancy did Kurt cobaine.

Disgrace land a rock and roll true crime podcast launches its third season on March fourteenth at his hosted by me Jake Brennan can't wait until the fourteenth. That's cool. You can binge ceases one and two now here past episodes onto pot biggie Marvin Gaye James Brown. John Lennon g Allen and more. Why because Rockstars in sync more like feral narcissistic animals than functioning members of society in this is precisely what makes them so entertaining, we want our Rockstars too bad. We want to believe in the mix. Listen to disgrace LAN of iheartradio app. Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. All right. We're back. So one of the things that I was reading was that at the time that these were being made in this goes along with our episode on a vacation. I mean, this was a process. It wasn't just like they had Jade suits, ready to go. Right, right. These suits would have taken the most skilled of Jade Smith's over ten years to make. So they were either building them before the person died or the person died. They were probably embalmed in some way. And then the suit was built around them ten years after they'd pass away. Now as should be obvious from that ten thousand tombs Twenty-three Jade suit remains figure there these were not for everybody these worse civically for members of the Hon aristocracy because ultimately who else is going to afford a low luxury burial item. Like this the work who hunt show or the book of the later Han Chinese court document from this time explained that your your rank determined what sort of Jade suit you were well suited for emperors. Had gold threaded Jade suits vassal kings. High ranking imperial concubines princesses had Jade suits with silver thread in dowager, concubines and sisters of the emperor lesser aristocrats had suits with copper thread. I wouldn't be offended where copper one. No. I would. I would I'd be happy with with with copper or tin. If anybody needs a dowager concubine calming now, sometimes there were added decoration. Emperor Wu's suit was decorated with imagery of the flood dragon and other sacred creatures and this is referred to as the flood dragon Jade suit, but a lot of them are going to be featureless polish Jade, yeah. One thing to remember here too is like we're throwing down terms of gold and silver and copper is that Jade was more valuable in China. Then gold or silver was in the west in Jade crafting as we mentioned earlier it achieved its height during the reign of emperor Chen long, and that was from seventeen thirty six to seventeen ninety five CE he actually made all Jade in the country and his private property. And the idea was that if anybody tried to trade Jade, it was punishable by death because he he owned it all regardless of whether or not it was actually in his possession. Now this ties in nicely with the next point. And that's that evidence supports that theory that this was a there was probably a centralized place or a couple of places for manufacturing these suits artisans would work on what was it again, essentially. A luxury item. So you can't just go anywhere and get a Jade suit and while the still couldn't today. No. I mean, unless unless you know, a guy. It's also worth noting that while these items were for specific members of Hon aristocracy, there were violations, including an account, and this was shared in the in a paper that will will side on the landing page by Jeffrey cow and Yang she'll Shing. And this was the tail of a eunuch named Zhao Zhong who secretly buried his father in Jade suit. But then he was found out. And so the casket was opened up and and busted out in his entire family was imprisoned for the for the for the crime think about that. I mean, like, given how difficult these things are to make like somehow you secretly had one of those made you bury your dad, and then you're out and caught in just like utterly punished for it. That's that's that's story. Yeah. I mean, it shows how how how important all of this was to the culture of the time. You know, this was this was not just you couldn't just be frivolous and get a Jade suit. No, the Jade suit close for particular members of society. And divide late. Those those societal divisions was was a dire matter. Now, we mentioned earlier how in in the late nineteen fifties. You had this hypothesis? These little Jade pieces, everyone was finding. We're we're we're bits of a Jade suit. But it wasn't until nineteen sixty eight when they found those two tombs in heavy this is when we actually had evidence we actually had to complete recovered, and ultimately restored suits of Jade armor, and in particular, they were losing printing of the kingdom of Joan Hsien. So this was the son of the western on emperor Jing and his consort. Dow lawn now while their bodies were undisturbed the corpses had collapsed the casket had collapsed, but everything was still in place. He had gold thread. She had silk. His suit contained two thousand four hundred ninety eight Jade pieces. Hers contained two thousand one hundred and sixty and in both suits, the only the outer. Or surfaces were polished in the inner surfaces were scarred. By circular, cutting, tools and straight edge tools. The very tools that you referred to earlier for the shaping of Jay and. Yeah. And while the Jade, you know, didn't protect their bodies from decomposition as was thought the poorest rock that was actually in this this, I guess cave is the best way to describe. It did have absorbed of capabilities when they were found in nineteen sixty eight the archaeologists had to work through get this to brick walls and a thick plate of molten iron that had been poured between them, and this is obviously because of how bad the grave robbing thing had become and partially. Why this one was hadn't been robbed yet? You know? So they they had to work their way through this loose Shen's body had those Jade plugs that we talked about earlier he adamant his nose ears and mouth. And then the little Jade shields for his is. They also each had gilt bronze headrests were inlaid with Jade. And they held Jade crescents in their hand. Now the coffin that was found on the floor. That was made four thousand pieces of Jade, and it had just completely fallen apart into a pile on the tomb floor. There were also lots of sculptures as we mentioned earlier. They they they placed lots of little items around to that were also made of Jade, including those of BIC C, which was a mythological powerful winged beast that averted evil included a picture in here. It's kind of it's kind of like a dragon took a cross between like a dragon and a dog with it's got wings. Yeah. I keep wanting to do a full exploration of as if such a thing were possible of of Chinese dragons. Yeah. Because there's so many different varieties. And there are a lot of things where you look at them. And you think oh, well, that's a dragon or this kind of a dragon turtle, but they all have very particular identities in simple in symbolic power. Like, you would do would depend where you would want to engrave one or include a statue of wildly protects certain certain structures. You know, I think I pronounce that Pinon wrong too because I just went with BIC C because it looks like it rhymes with pixie. But I think it's supposed to be be she okay, though. I look a looks like a big when imagine his name pm pixie it. Hey, this is the Polk amount of their time in this thing looks pretty cool. It's it's kind of like a fat chested dragon dog. Indeed. Now, obviously when we when we look at the Jade burial, suits. We're looking at the convergence of two different customs burial in armor, and the sacred use of Jade, so there are plenty of examples of of of just normal decorative armor suits that were worn by bodies prior to this and the actually the the prince that we've just referred to believe he was buried with a suit of armor. Okay. In the suit of armor, was actually a more modern design. Okay. But he was the that was just included with him. And he was actually buried, of course, in the Jade armor, now, my understanding is these two in particular that we're referring to. These are the ones that are touring around the world, and you can see them in various museum locations. Yes. I believe. So all right. So you're probably wondering. Well, then what happens to the Jade suits like this is a pretty fantastic tradition. Why does it fade away? Why does something so rich? And so or Nate just vanish and the the answer is interested in the answering has the answer has to do with all those plundered tombs it's all about grave robbing. And this is fascinating and disturbing as well. When we read what the the the the the tomb raiders would do with the suits when they pilfered them. Yeah. There were more than two dozen suits that have been discovered since nineteen sixty eight. But the reason why there aren't more is because in AD two hundred twenty three emperor wen of Wei ordered that the production of them had to be stopped because of so much looting. And what would happen is these looters would go in and they would burn the suits. Solely. So they could retrieve the gold thread that was within. They didn't care about the Jade, and as you pointed out off air will if you had these little pieces of Jade that were perfectly cut down to make a suit. You can't go sell that on the black market because somebody's going to know. Oh, this must have come from the specific suit from the specific prince, but gold you can meltdown intern in whatever you want. So you can always come up with a story about that gold. Yeah. But those Jade pieces were clearly stolen from an important person's body, and you might as well just walk around with a sign in Mandarin. That says executing right? Now, you referred back earlier to the poorest nature of the Jade, and there is this this idea that is put out there that even though the Jade does not have any magical body preserving properties. And you know, despite the fact that no soft tissue has been been found preserved by these funeral rites. It has been suggested that this put the poorest nature of the stone at self might actually preserve some genetic material. And that you know, DNA might be found intermixed with the Jade a lot of accounts of this notion refer back to a piece titled immortal J by Sherry to Lynn Cohen this published in the Canadian medical journal. But to my knowledge there's been no actual evidence for this thus far. Okay. But I could see why would be an interesting avenue of research. Like, yeah, there's some possibilities for genealogical research, especially real, you know, you mentioned the Han ethnic group. Earlier related to that. That could be some interesting stuff if you're looking at DNA samples. Yeah. I think one of the problems there is that is that we do have tombs and graves from the Han dynasty that. We're able to study and aimed get you netted information from. So it's not like these would be the one place. We would find it. Yeah. And this so this leads into my I I know mentioned this earlier, but it's just it seems really weirdly offensive that these relics are kind of pulled out of where they were kept trotted out across the world and displayed in museums. I remember the high museum here in Atlanta and had the Tara cotta warriors couple of years ago, and they were very cool. But the so my understanding was those terra cotta warriors were buried with you know, someone very much like these Jade suits were. And I felt similar then I I don't know I suppose if they didn't do this the tombs would eventually be looted by somebody. But to me, I guess the idea moral ones. What you saw when you were in China is you go to the actual site itself. And you see them that is at least like sort of compromising. You're allowing them to keep these suits that they? That they believed we're going to protect them in the afterlife. Yeah, I guess this gets into a more complicated issue than it's going to vary from culture to culture, and depending how far back in time you're going. Yeah. Because I instantly makes me think back to when I was at the field museum, Chicago. We went up there for C two. And Joe, and I went over there. And they have a wonderful native American section a lot of it devoted to northwest coast native peoples. Okay. And you know, the masks they have costumes of details about their various, rich spiritual traditions. But there's a section that. They've completely marked off. You can't see into anymore because the display depicts important artifacts from their funeral rites. So okay. Yeah. Okay. So somewhere along the line like maybe that tribe in its current interrelation said we're uncomfortable with this. Please don't do it. Yeah. So it's a current people saying this is we find this to be. Disrespectful needs to be handled in a more appropriate manner. I'd be curious if there's if there's anyone in China who feels that way about this stuff or if it's just kind of like they've moved past that. Then ration- for this particular dynasty. And they're okay with, you know, sending him around the world and having them looked at because it I I guess in a way it spreads Chinese culture. Yeah. Yeah. It's curious. Well, if you're a listener out there, and you have any idea maybe lived in China or your Chinese yourself, please. Let us know. I'd be curious. Indeed. So so there you have it. Hopefully, we've provided a decent snapshot of another just really interesting funeral tradition. A an artistic tradition a time period a little about the mineral and the possibility of some sort of genetic material actually being preserved by this the supernatural infused funeral right now, I I guess some people are probably thinking that I'm a bit of a hypocrite because they started off the episode saying I would love to see a movie about a Jade burial suited mummy. But at the same time, I kind of am comfortable about actually looking at the real thing. So, you know, I'd be curious if you if you've got any information about this that we missed please, let us know you can reach out to us on social media. We're on Facebook Twitter tumbler, Instagram, if you've seen these before, and you've got details that you want to let us know about please tell us that two or maybe even some pictures that would be cool.

#50 G&Q Try to Do the Right Thing

"Welcome gene key review where we reviewed the best TV and film. The has to offer and sometimes some other stuff to. Through. One. And we back gene Q. Review. What's going on grants? Not Much Quinn. What is going on with you in California and loss? Angeles Angels I in Los Angeles Today, actually a little announcement. I went to the. Gym. Harnett Jim for the for no way. To make a reservation. Did it during a lunch break. No. There can only be ten people in the gym at once. And how many were there like six six or seven? And you have a mouse gone. I did have a mask I was like my plan was going to bring it, and I was like a bed. No one's going to be wearing it in there, and then I'll slip it off. I can get a good workout in, but nope. I was shamed into my mask wearing. And it was hell. Man Tried to do a little bit of Cardio. Felt like I was going to die. I mean it's really going in your mouth. I can like. I mean I won't say I can barely breathe, but even walk around on a hot day with a mask on walking. I have to like. Pull it down to breathe I obviously I'm not I'm not condoning not wearing a mask, but they are. Inconvenient. The, very inconvenient, especially, when working out or doing strenuous activity. and. Yeah, so that was the thing. I. Guess I'm going to try and go back tomorrow again. Sia. See what it's like. It's the only like weird thing they did was like they kind of. Shutdown random machines like it makes sense when you you turn off every other treadmill. All the treadmills are all the same you know you. Just you do every other one, but then there's like rows of machines, and in order to preserve social distancing they. They picked and choose they just. Like Oh, the the the the machine chest press that you can't use that one. But the leg press right next to it. Yeah, you're good. Are you sure there was no rhyme or reason? It was just every other one. Didn't seem to be. Thought. Area through. So. Yeah, that's me. What's grant. Not really that much What's new with me? I went to pretty cool. Antiques store this weekend with your mass passage. Yes, masks on. That was pretty cool I would take I to pull off my mask if there's not people within six feet. Because I and I think that's okay as Well one a mask is like. For you against others. Not Protecting me at all, or is it protecting you from the surfaces that are in that antique store, those antiques? Antiques the CROWBARS. I. Take a breath ticket. Breath five minutes. I'll give me some oxygen brain. Yeah I think that's A. that's why that was. That was fun. I don't think I did much else. It's it's hot here. So swampy, but it's good. Do you know what is a bummer. Which I think is a bummer. It was the summer solstice. Two days ago. Yeah. Which means. Get shorter. I've I've a? Now. It's like Quinn is like it's like you go on vacation. and. It's at the beginning of vacation. Everything's great. You don't even think about the end. The end is not near. You don't even think about when you have to fly out. All the experiences are new and their untainted, and then the Middle Day hits, and you realize wow. That's halfway over the over We're going to have to leave at some point. At the halfway. Mark Quinn is the halfway mark to winner I used to worry about those things grant before I moved out here. Okay? Now I'm just a riding into the sunset. It'll it'll be. Eighty and sunny. Six months from now too so. That's what they're. Speaking of hot grant. What. What are we reviewing today? Here's a sweltering hot day in the movie we reviewed. Do the right thing. It's a nineteen eighty nine American comedy drama. It's an interesting description of it. produced written and directed by Spike Lee. It's stars. A lot of people I'm not going to read right now. The Story Explores this before the story explores a Brooklyn neighborhoods simmering racial tension which culminates in violence and a death on a hot summer day, it takes place in a single day. In his one long day. Really Yeah. That's true. Yeah, this one day, yeah! Pretty. Pretty well done. Right I. Know You suggested this last week? and. For some reason in my head I just thought comedy, you know. Maybe you said that word, but you're like That's interesting and I was like us right for this comedy so but. I guess the worst, some some pretty funny lines, but this movie as a whole was not very. Comedic. I wouldn't call it a comedy if I had to put a a genre in on it. It was more of a thought provoking. Cultural Culture analyzing. Timeless piece I would say. Yeah especially relevant today, and I think People have been rewatching. It's free on Amazon prime and I think there's a reason but what we're were talking about is there is a scene of police brutality Yeah, the whole films about race so. This definitely relevant to what you know, the Times today But I think the story itself is. There's a lot of talk about regardless of. You know the ending. I think first and foremost. This is going to be one of those things that. Some twitter troll is going to pull up ten fifteen twenty years later. They're going to be like well an episode, forty nine or This is our fiftieth. PODCAST anyways. That's separate. ACCOLADE but in episode fifty, fifty. Grant Farmer said that Blah Blah Blah Blah, blah, Blah Blah, and they're going to cut a little sound clip, and your going to be deemed a racist for. Some kermit's yeah for eternity. You're going to be canceled from your multi. Yeah Yeah I hope that's not the case I think it should be. Able to you know spoken to you and talked about really WANNA tiptoe around. Rather just dive into it yeah I. Mean it's about having a conversation I watched this I remember. A lot of things about this movie I didn't. Want to get to the ending but. The things that I remembered most and I think it's because it's what we studied in. We weren't studying the plot. When I watch this film class, we were studying the colors, so the colors in the music were very stylistic and very enjoyable, very cool that first opening scene. What'd you think of that with her dancing? With the the fight, the power song going on time the school I mean. I didn't really know what was going on. At that moment I was still in comedy mode. was like a cool piece. Ensure peace. READY FOR SOME JOKES! But there were a lot of instances like that where. Characters. I don't know if she was necessarily breaking the fourth wall because it was kind of like a musical intro. But a lot of the characters break the fourth wall. They look at the camera and they. Usually. Say something hateful. Oh Yeah. Yeah I forget. They did well, they hide. And really break the fourth wall. What instance to they bring the fourth wall? The only thing I can think of is when Radio Raheem did the love and hate story, but really he was talking to Mookie. The oppression that he was breaking the fourth wall really. When you have the. The scene where every single race is like yelling. A profanity or some sort of racial insult at. That does break the fourth which other there yeah I. Think Anytime you're you're doing that. But you like the interesting. Thought it was just I thought the colors were were pop in the music was was good. And it was a really cool. That was the opening credits right and they did. The Mix match of color. They had her. In like different outfits and the color schemes were at some point I thought my TV was fucked up because it was so open. Excuse so dark. mookie in his girl, yeah! And there's a lot of I think they're called like Dutch angles or something where it's like. Yes, August yeah, especially when Radio Raheem came into the store. Yeah, kind of gives you the impression that. What you call them. They have a name Dutch angles could be making that up. Or maybe no, no, you pull it up and radio. Raheen comes right up. That's right now known as the Dutch tilt. I ain't even study film. Like two classes. But I definitely felt. The heat they were trying to. Show off the entire movie. It's the hottest day of. The Summer New York. City. And everyone is. I think everyone's on edge to. It was like our some. Said, this movie is just how an extremely hot day brings out the worst and people. People get really angry in the summer. or in the heat. It was, it was definitely like an underlying I think it could be symbolic of racial tension right where issues underlying for everyone of all. No one's in a good mood in this film. No! Everyone's just pissed off. Except jade jade was pretty choose upbeat jade was good and I think. Maybe the mayor kind of Damaris I'd like to mayor. A black dude walked around. He seemed like he was the mayor of the block. Bro, yeah, and then even he was beef, and with the younger generation they were going through some. Hey, we're people with him. Yeah! They were eating on him. He's like I. Don't WanNa. Know your story academic money. Well I'd like to Radio Raheem a lot his intro. What did they walks around with? A jukebox was like Radio Raheem. But I guess that same group of kids. I, don't know if they liked. Radio racking, but I don't know who. With Ren-. The main character played a spike Lee. And they got along. and. Actually don't really? Remember a lot about like the not remember. But I can't think of any. Big events from like the first half of the movie was kind of I. Mean there was a lot of yellen a lot of? Cultural and race discussions just kind of the cuff between different people. There are some zingers to in the beginning where I think are maybe that's midway where the one guy messes up bugging Jordan's. BUGGING OUT JORDAN Shorter fucked up. Again them. Eventually. I'd say the tensions really start with. Bugging Out Warning Sal Pizza shop owner. A white old dude and he runs a pizza shop in a predominantly the last. That old right, hosie. He's older defied yeah! Sorry. Not that old. One day we'll be there. We'll be like I'm not that old. And bugging out once Sally to put some pictures on this hall of fame on the wall. It's all white Italians and he wants some black people in the wall. Yup in sales like. Basically like fuck you like I. This is my. Like get your own story. You can do everyone doing. My Walk. And then it just kinda escalates from there where you have well I got to. That situation doesn't ask until the end. Boycotting, south and stuff! Bright but. In between that is you get to see this racial interaction between I? Pretty much every character What was his name Pino? Pino was styles on. One of south sons, yes, per year was very racist. Overtly racist yet they. Yeah. Yeah, but it was interesting to see some kind of dialogue happened between him, Mookie, but he was wasn't having it. He's the. What's the other brothers name? Think it's. Veto! Veto Veto Savino. They kinda bonded a bit him in Mookie, but Pino was more of an outright. Racist. And what were you saying so they? They kind of have some talks and. I I don't know what this is, but you know this is. This is early in the film. Before I knew what happened and I said bugging out is underline a trouble maker. I forget what he did I think. I think he was trying to instigate stuff unrelated to sows later like he seemed like a he was. Obviously you know with the ending or not? I'm not trying to justify anything but the dude. Start trouble. In general, yeah I, mean I I'm looking at my notes. I. Don't know what seen this is I should have probably wrote that down by, said bugging. How is a troublemaker? Let's see is always this way. He's trying to get everyone to boycott cells. No I think been after. The bike? Maybe it was during the bike scene. With the guy with the bike. On Yeah. He is I live here I'm sorry. Screaming at him and trying to start a mob and. There was A. A lot of yelling. I mean I. I don't think. There's been a movie I've seen in a while that has just like that much yelling. People are yelling this whole movie and. It's very hard to. Make any progress on things when people are yelling. Because maybe you have different opinions, you know maybe. This is where Oh. This is where I get into some criticisms of the movie. But Maybe Sal. He has his valid point four. Not! Wanting Any black pictures will. Not that he doesn't black pictures, but it's more of a freedom. Argument is like this is my wall. I. Don't know this. It doesn't have any black people on it. And you got bugging out. WHO's like? Hey, man, you make your living off of black people. Like, don't you want to show a little bit of respect and? Appreciate your community respect your community, and so both of them are kind of right. But you're not gonNA get anywhere with like fucking. Yellen man. That's why I was I was just GonNa. Say That I was like dude. There's no. Starter right like. I mean. Yeah. The to has a bunch of white dude's. On, his wall. But it is store. Should he? You know? If someone asked him if jade asked him I think he put him up. Right, so you? Dude who you're forty five. You're running a store. You've been here for twenty five years and you've dealt with this before. You had this kid and then the day. He's a kid who's yelling at you. Antanas starting trouble I understand it's. It's about race, but. You're like dude. You and when you're a kid, you're riled up. He's literally Yellen at South. And do is like I have customer. You're disturbing. Everyone. Your disturbing people I think yeah data, vow point, and instead of having dialogue bugging out just. He's bugging out. Spoken out. and. Eventually, I think we can. Recap the ending. They, they hit a boiling point where Radio Raheem and. Bogging out. They like charge into the store after hours. In the other gang of Kids are also there. There's just an argument about. Brahim's playing his boombox planet full. Sales like shut that shit off blah. I think he says yelling. Shut that jungle music off and missing jungle, music and Africa and Blah Blah Blah. And eventually sell calls me and word and smashes the radio. With a bat with a bat, multiple times destroys it. and. Then a riot ensues well. A fight ensues the fighting punching each other. Store radio, Raheem and Sour Punch each other on top of each other. And during all this commotion. I think this happened. I don't know if you see him or not, but I know the characters said. that Pino called the police. Okay. They said it I didn't see I don't know if he did or not forgotten. COPS got there. The cops got there somehow said Pino call the cops. And there's a mob or a crowd forming. and. Somehow they pick because reams like beaten out of Sal. And they pick up Radio Raheem and guess he just puts them in a chokehold. And kills. Nine show cool! These children with his baton baton, yes. I don't know if. It would technically I think that might still be a chokehold. If. You're choke. Is Pretty brutal brutal and he'll on. And then I you know it's. They yeah, read Iraqis of a big ass. Dude so. He needs restraint, but then of course is always especially as we're. We're seeing now. You know the cops. Had No. Their adrenaline pumping and the God no stop. They're not aware of the situation. They're being brutally violent. Excessive force is used against Radio Raheem and they kill him. And then you got the typical cop shit. You know I'll wake up. You know like you just faking it and reruns fucking debt. And everyone sees this as well. Everyone sees us. and. They put them in the car. The take them away. And then a mob forms outside of sales place in the. Tensions are very high. No one's really moving until mookie. Spike Lee main character picks up a trash. Can any throws it through the window? And after that the window breaks, people start mobbing the place. sales is then burned to the ground I, mean they? They destroy it completely. and. Then the movie I thought it was going to end their kind of, but then they they. They showed kind the next day where. McKie's like well I worked. My time I'M GONNA. Go get my money from Sal. and. He Sees Sal, and they have like a little bit of an argument. 'cause sounds like you've got some balls coming here like ask them for your money eventually. GIVES! Twice. The pay. He throws five hundred bucks. Yeah. Throws samples the chromosome up in a row ball like. Sal is paying him and shit. Right and And the movies like take your money back. I owe you fifty bucks, so he threw two hundred bags, and then Saleh gave him three hundred when supposed to to fifty whatever and then. They have some words and I. Thought you know, and maybe this is the romantic in me. I, thought they made eye contact in the. Kata understood each other at some point Thought. I don't know why thought this, but I I thought maybe they could. Maybe, mookie would help rebuild or dad. I don't think. But and. After all of this all this yelling racial. Arguments. In between the movies, they're scenes like with The the arguments with the different communities, the whites, blacks, blacks, Koreans, Koreans versus like the Jewish mayor or something. Everyone's has a lot of hateful things to say. And the end this movie screen cuts the black and then they show a quote. And, it's a quote from Martin Luther King. And it's basically A. Quote. That's advocating for nonviolence saying hey, we. CanNot achieve anything if we fight back with violence like we're never gonNA get anywhere. But then. Right after that quote, they show a quote from Malcolm. X. which is basically pro violence. If the situation is necessary, violence will be. Taken her. Embrace said. Yeah I thought I. Had these quotes up Let's see. But has C. looked for that at that point I was just. Confused Really 'cause I. Mean The way. I saw it I thought. The movie was going to end with that. Message With the Martin Luther King Nonviolence of course, none of this can be solved. And then the more I dug into the film or Doug in a Spike Lee. That is not what He. Believes and He I. Think Okay. The you know I haven't looked in as deep as you of I think. This is what I got right? Yeah, and this is you know when? I've had discussions with my friends about you know a protests and looting and. Obviously you know I. I've been to protest. I've been to these protests. And I I support him right peaceful better. In terms of of looting. I, don't think I commend it. But I think it's it makes sense. It's almost justified because you get to that point of desperation. Violent sometimes is the only answer and I think that's always been. The differences between. And Malcolm X. in they were still got along. They shared the same policy for the most part. You want the same thing. Yes, they want the same thing, but. You know even mlk could see a points where violence was necessary. And Malcolm X. was not advocating for violence all the time right there. Is Not like there wasn't any overlap between their ideologies There and I thought what what this film was portraying to me was. Examples where? The violence was could be justified, right? In in the way this played out. Could be self defense but. because. It was like if you know using violence, not using violence in self defense is like unintelligent or I'm butchering the quote. Yes, but I think it was it was. It was showing the how sometimes things are not peaceful, and that doesn't mean you can write them often ignore this raisch this horribly. Braces thing to happen with the cops. I agree and disagree I. Believe the movie. Did a great job at. Creating this fictional story that's actually like hyper realistic. Where you see how these? Situations do happen. Why like why? Things end up. In, a riot in a frenzy. What it doesn't just happen randomly doesn't just happen. After one off comment. or one someone being slighted, so I get serious things, but I do not agree. With that. It is justified in any way. What you I went on a brandt. Safely doesn't believe there was a reason why he didn't just end with them. Quote well. He said I was watching some interviews and he said there's a reason. We ended with the Malcolm X. quote. And that. In every. Read. A lot of random articles to and they all try and spin them into like. Oh, if you watch this movie and you will like you were more concerned with the destroyed pizzeria than with radio were. He's life like you. Sir Are Racist. And I saw something like that where he was saying. It's kind of like a litmus test. The movie, the movie critics, but if when I was reading this quote, I mean. What he was saying he's like. Let's see I actually have this up The thing I like this is Lee. The thing I liked about do the right thing. Especially for credits is that it was a litmus test. I think you could really tell how people thought and who who they were and if I. Read a review, and all talked about with the stupidity of burning the pizzeria in the stupidity of the violence, the looting, the burning, and not one mention of the murder of Radio Raheem I, knew exactly where they are coming from well. Yeah, that that's a quote. This this is. A quote from read it quoting Spike Lee, so I can't tell you, but if this was spike, Lee said well. Yeah, dude, no one's talking about I mean if you're just talking about the stupidity and and Sows Pizza. Store and I'm not talking about ready. Raheem you probably racist. I agree with that. Yeah. I don't know what you were watching I. I'm just more of the side for arguing. This entire situation is bad. What, is Zoya Shin I think of ridable. It's avoidable I. Think I think so, too. Maybe. They're not yelling. Have some conversations. Let's talk about some things. I mean. What else? In terms of. Cinematography they did. The mood of the whole film, right, there's this underlying tension throughout that you feel. And I think it's the absolute moment. Where where it peaked for me, was they had The mob right? They just destroyed they. They looted while I. Guess Not really looted, but they destroyed and burnt down south pizzeria. Yes, and there were two stores in the neighborhood that were by. non-blacks WanNa south pizzeria the other was a Korean grocery store, and they turned around and some of the neighbors. The black. People lived in neighborhood were upset. and. Why is he so I think it was like just to two guys or one guy. He was upset that the Koreans had a business in their neighborhood, and they didn't right After. A year or something something like that. Yeah, and they turned to. The store and that to me was the the most tense moments of the film while one of them was tense. Seeing this in you can see how volatile. Mobs are right because you don't know what they're gonNA. Do and I obviously for the sake of the film and. At that point, the mobs pretty villain is if they did loot this place, right? I think it's hard to argue that this mob. was justified it away so much if if they if they looted the the Koreans, but you feel his tension, and they don't, and they stand down, and it's Kinda diffused. But I mean there's so much emotional tension going throughout and spike. Lee doesn't fantastic job at. Portraying that you feel like you're at your seat. You're like Oh my God holy Shit. What's going to happen? Yeah there are a lot of. Interactions and motives for. Actions that could have swayed the film in to one side like oh obviously. That's a violent disrespectful mob or obviously. Salazar Super Racist which we can talk about, too. But it did a very good job of kind of walking the line. And not. Just Kinda of showing reality I. Mean these things are not black and white and. Tensions build. People get angry. What I just mentioned. Right there grant s with something. Maybe I fell into the trap, but it was something where I didn't agree with. where? There are some academic articles in some. Other authors that refer to sal is the sympathetic racist. Meaning spiking Spike Lee he, he does this. he? He takes this movie and for the for. Most of the movie he builds sal up as like a- empathetic guy. You're like like SAL as working. Hard and he's run his business, but. Spike Lee plays this trick on you where? You fall into his trap or he's actually not a commendable person. Yeah. He's I saw that. Get where you're saying now. That I'm thinking about it i. It's A. It's kind of a trick. On your viewers in a way because. And and maybe that's maybe the point. This mike is trying to purge portray is someone can seem good until they're not and they're real motives. Come Out, but. Even a sow was the whole movie was not racist until the at while, he didn't do anything that you would make think that he was races. That's what I want to ask. Yeah. I didn't think he was racist. And I thought he was speaking down Pino his. His son was being racist and I thought he was a disapproving of it one hundred percent and. That's. My impression on on on the watch, right I had similar feelings. where? You know you had a pretty good dude. This whole way through in. The heat of the moment. You, just kind of say the worst thing possible that you can think of to someone that's. Trying to bring you down. I don't instigate. Provoke to provoke you. Because you can. The the counter to what you're saying is is two things one I think there's a group of people? That believe that he truly deliberately did not put any pictures on the wall of black people because of his inner. Racism or dislike for black people. I didn't really see that. I can't I can't find any interview or quotes from Spike Lee, but I saw other people reference this all over that. People said that. Spike Lee wrote him in as a racist like it's in the script. And I couldn't find anything to back that. I don't know like and this. What I got from the film was that. It's called. Do the right thing right and the right thing is often muddied. And what happened, there is no like one is guilty, and no one's guilty you know, and it's just kind of the ambiguity of morality, especially in this story where I mean, you'll have like the police prefect. homolka pretty pretty straightforward guilty, but you have like an MP, but you you have Pino. He's he's a kid. He's very racist like straight up. But he's a kid and angry right and. Angry, teenagers are dumb. Everyone's been angry teenager. You've done some stupid fucking Shit. You know there's. You could have grown up as a racist teenager and be fined today. Right S As, as much as you have bugging out. Who is he is looking for? Something like it's. A hot day. It's boring as hell. There's nothing to do, and you're teenager looking to get into stuff. That was me I was always a teenager trying to get into stuff, right and. What he was doing was was. I don't want to say it was ill intended, but it was not good willed right definitely not good, willed and I when I saw the two quotes at the end of the movie. Maybe I'm getting no wrong reading. Right but I thought all right. Do there's like? There's really no right thing right there. There there could be, it could be peaceful and nonviolent, and this case was violent, but you're like dude I kind of understand how it got like they show you how it got violent, and you're like well. Yeah that escalated quickly, but Damn you know I can see how we're having I'M NOT GONNA. Write anyone all because it. That's exactly right. And that's how that's how I probably should've left it before trying to dig into like. What is the? What is the author? Her mean by this you know and taking. That interpretation as Truth or like the solution. I think that was a common sentiment among people that have seen the film that. You, know it is. It's not clear it's. Things are. Complicated, it's. People are. Maybe there is no right thing, but. Spike Lee may have different things to say. But. He made an amazing piece of work that. Was a great movie I mean to to? It's called. Do the right thing so I know how people can, and and that's the thing with any movie, right? You'll have people who can maybe be. Go a little, too. deepen the symbolism. are not saying. This is the case in this film, but my immediate impression was. Horrible tragedy happened. and I it. No one wanted to happen, right? I guess that's it like no one intended on any of this happening and happened so quickly and out of control, and the and your loose live loses. Everyone loses. Everyone leaves. The which. Yeah. It's shitty except the cops. The cops shipping. Bane didn't lose. But? Guess, we never see them. I remember I mean even at the end. It's kind of poignant where he's sitting. You know south sitting there and like. There's there's of valid. Imagine. You did build a restaurant from scratch like everything in that restaurant you built you painted. You would stalled all the electrics and it's gone like you're telling me. Your dvr not supposed to sympathize. Insurance Insurance is going to get you'll be. You have to. That's not how works. Ray Yes I'm not saying he's not gonNA insured. That's not how human emotion works right. The dudes going gonNA fucking devastated. That he'd had that thing for his respiratory five years. Even WanNa move out, but. Read one interpretation which I don't agree with that. This is kind of the Sal racist thing where? He saw himself as a supremacists in the literal sense where you know he's. He's feeding the community like he is better than the rest of the people because he gives them. The food that they want and he's got a heightened sense ego and. I was like okay. He's there because he can make money by then the day which is true, he's running a business and he has to make money, and he says he can't go back to. E can't set up. A pizza shop in the neighborhood goes to pizza show what do pizza shops and sometimes it's it's like that. It's like that. Both sides, sometimes you're just. Arguing that racial injustices don't exist, but sometimes people are just looking for a looking for trouble. The neighbors the the vast majority when bugging was trying to get people to support his boycott. Everyone likes sal. All the black neighbors, all the black people in the film Light Sal Except Radio Raheem and bug out, and then it turned to a mob because in the heat of the moment. Or apparently I don't know if according to what you read may be. Saw was a racist the whole time for twenty five years and hit it really well, but. Regardless when you start throwing, you know the N. Word around. In, you know nothing's GonNa come from it, but that's when the mob broke out, but before that the general sentiment from everyone and everything they likely presented to you about sows that he was a pretty solid dude. The. Sympathetic Racist. I read, I mean I, think it might. It may even be just that word I know. There was beef between. Spike Lee and Quentin. Tarantino Django unchained out. Like. The Tarantino you know doesn't have the right to I. Don't know, use the N. Word so many times in film or Any of the details, but I know they fought over basically. Black culture black. Relations. So Well. It doesn't detract from the film. No and I meant to start with this, but yes, if you guys all our dedicated fans, they know that this was my favorite clip from the fog. That ladders. And I thought platters that matter. This is fucking ridiculous. This is this a bad horror film who? Pretty. Bad writing as hilarious though I need that. I was cracking up well. Apparently. It's a thing radio DJ. Say I guess Eranio. That matter matters day better and back to route. That is Samuel Jackson was in. Do the right thing smooth scouts? List senior. No way he so smooth man. Yes. Well yes I think it's about time grand. We are yeah, we definitely not. We've got forty five minutes in where we doing. We're we're going to do the the. Patented, Gene, Q. Review where we decided. Whether the true rating of the film is over or under the am to be reading. and. We are sitting at a seven point nine. Seven point nine point nine nine. That's lower than I thought. Really I liked this film. GISS Lord I thought. I. It's hard to say. seven point. Nine that puts it a little under the top two fifty. Euro were you know you can read analysis enough about any film? I believe that ruins. It I enjoyed the film the first time I watched it. I remember I. Loved It. Wash it again now. Enjoyable throughout I think. It's very unique in terms of dialogue and the pacing of the PUCK and I. Don't really think there's anything That needs the that I would change about it. and for that all those reasons I think it should be over. Grants over I think. I'm over to. I think. Maybe, if I saw it. When it first came out, know I wasn't. Aware of things I wasn't even born in one, thousand, nine, hundred nine, but I think it's done a really good job of. Parallel mirroring. The. Emotions and Situations that are. I mean the shit that we've seen a couple of weeks ago. That is poignant point. Is that. When was this made? Nine, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty nine. Nine. Seeing Shit. That's definitely. Tells you that there's there's change that needs to be had that needed to be had thirty years ago. That right? Maybe we should. Switch up our approach. I wish talk, let's talk. What do I know? All right anything else atkin no I think that's That's it. We're both over. What's within the? What's what is the platter for next week? The player matters. Yes, we're going. We're MAC in the players that don't matter. Or that matter the lease we're going to the I'm DB. Bottom, one hundred zero grant. Those are the worst movies ever made sure. We WanNA watch those. Yes, we're watching them, so you don't have to Okay so let's do aren Angie. A real quick little drum roll, please. ended. I have to always mess by five.
