"This is the champion. This is where Gavin kids'll our executive producer throws up a topic. Mike, can I discuss Gavin gets to pick a winner Bobo here as well as our technical producer. What up guys what's happening who would've known flavor town wasn't in the middle of Wisconsin. Labor right right off I ninety. Yeah. Who would've thought on your way to on your way to Janesville who would have thought? Yeah. Janesville reference to guys. Hey, I know spot if you need fireworks though. The anti guy Fieri. All right, Mike does lead this two to one right now. This question will be worth two. So we have a car right after this. We've had a lot of talk in recent weeks about the patriots dynasty will come to an end with the loss. Let's not look at the Bill Belichick part of this. Let's look at the Tom Brady heart. If they lose today to the cheese is that Tom Brady's final game damn buyers start with you know, and I think it's the flip side is the scenario where we'd more likely see Tom walk away with a Super Bowl victory than anything else. But no, definitely not especially here's the other thing with this. If groggy does retire, I think there's a new challenge. And if you move on from Giulini Ataman, there's a new challenge in trying to show. Look, I don't even need these guys. I could go through my third rowdy. Look we went through. We went through Troy Brown and Dion branch grog Wes Welker, Julian element of gone through. All these guys. Let's break in some new guys is well, I think that would. Actually you'll Tom Brady to play. Again. There's going to come a point there's an whether it be this season or whether it be next season where it is gonna fall off. If it's if it's happening to Peyton Manning, and you continue to play it's going to happen to someone else in it's going to happen to even Tom Brady. The greatest quarterback that there has been the point being is. I don't think he has it in him to say, no that I think he still finds new challenges, and so he'd be more likely to write off into the sunset with the wind. But if they lose it provides more fire in this more challenges for him to continue have his Elway Jerome Bettis moment. Now, he's got going anywhere. It's the next bit of evolution talked about it a bit earlier you've got a young team around there. A big article in the Washington Post still walks up every guy even if they've been in the league and they're free agents. Hi, I'm Tom Brady. It's new chapter every year new challenge, and I know Giselle and anytime you can get Giselle function into the conversation because then people start to Google images and. While happy day for you. The the fact is you got a guy who's not done. He's not gonna go out with a loss. There's no way that happens if they lose today if they lose in the Super Bowl in Atlanta doesn't matter that that means there's unfinished business, and now it's the next iteration of things you you've reconstituted this team you go onto the run game. You brought in Sony. Michelle you drafted a running back in the first round. Hey, you've changed. How you're going at things you won the power struggle of. I wanna stay here and believe whatever part of the narratives of how much everybody was in love with Jimmy Garoppolo. I do he's a White Sox fan. So he's he's my guy we talked about Chicago food and the White Sox a couple of years ago when he was out here for an event in Los Angeles. That's great. But you won that. So that said, okay, we're buying into you for a few more years and with TV twelve recovery system. Whatever else main. He didn't have the four neck injury surgeries or whatever the true number is a Peyton Manning that prompted that precipitous decline. You still have some life in the ball. Maybe you don't throw as many deep balls. Right. Maybe maybe you can don't can you you work your offense that way with a run game at New Orleans, right? I mean drew Brees takes a couple of shots per game. But it's not the same way. It's about efficiency and the surgeon like. Precision. Sorry, Gavin just like you saw against what Gus Bradley throughout their last week. If you're not going to change up. I'm going to keep doing this death by a thousand paper cuts, sorry, buddy. But I think that's it. It's that challenge to keep going and don't don't believe for a second. You saw them all week play. The we're the underdog nobody believes in us card to the hilt Ataman, printing, jer shirts and the whole nine yards. So Brady's still got that ship on his shoulder. Everybody wants to crown the next guy while he's still sitting atop the throne. All right Gavin. You were Tony Romo holding the ball clocks. And then you mentioned the chargers getting. Campfire with an amazing. Rockets.

"At that hotel in Janesville, Wisconsin Andy had no idea about Baltimore. He didn't know that there were other possible victims or that police in Maryland knew all about Brian but failed to stop him. Mark explains it appears as if you may have actually stopped someone who has. Dan on record in and on the radar of other police agencies in other parts of the country, and is quiet. Mark tells him what Brian kind was accused of in Maryland, then shows him the evidence. What's your taking just seeing a little bit of this right here? Squirrels. Really gross. They read through the emails and compare the dates this police report was filed a year and a half before the incident Janesville. That's correct. I should've prosecuted to the full extent of the law at that point. Why what's at stake? If they don't more thirteen year old girls. Mark explains to Andy the way that Baltimore County cleared the case. So it turns out the leadership from the Baltimore County. Police department has talked about how their clearance rates are higher than the national average on things like category of rape when we dug into their crime statistics, we found that a lot of the crimes that they quote unquote, clear are similar to this where they actually never make an arrest clear. The case exceptionally leave the suspect on the streets and move on. So they get a feather in their cap, and it comes at a high price. What happened in Baltimore County? What police did there will it may have shocked, Andy. But it turns out police do this all the time. Mark Bernice.

"And Justin comes into the to the pressroom and we're supposed to talk later that day, but he had some other media stuff going on, and he goes, he goes pick j. He's like Jon Morgan picking Janesville and I'll pick smart even out yet. So like I don't know. I think I had done some other interviews and we talked about it or whatever, but he's like Jon Morgan picking James Vicki's I, I'm a knock him out just for you just for you. I'm going to knock them out in like it was funny because there is like a room full like PR people, and I think all of us were trying to get a read, like, is he actually angry or is he just kind of planning around a little bit? And then when I interviewed him later, like he'd been given really good interviews all day and he wasn't bad to me, but he didn't really like give me the greatest interview ever. And so I was like, I think maybe he really does have like a chip on his shoulder and then sure enough man. So the cameras only caught part of it because I did go back and check the broadcast because I got hit up on Twitter. I'm like, I wonder what they showed the cameras part of it, like. During the commercial and they were showing the highlights. He did came up to me even before that, and it was like pointing to me like, you see your boy over there, put them to sleep, just like put him to sleep like. John, what did you go with James? Was it a little Texas? Love was a coin flip and us went with the Lone Star state or straight up. It was. It was a coin flip to me in there, wasn't Texas love there for sure. Man, I, I like James, and but I did think that he had a path to victory. I thought he headed by a pretty much a perfect fight to do it. And I thought he's had some success early. You know, he's using the cheap, good kicks in, touch deliver up a little bit. Yeah, and I thought that I thought that he was going to be able to do that to be honest. And here I'll be honest with you. We turn our staff picks early on on Monday, right? Trying to get it done. So nobody Morocco doesn't on Thursdays, of course, as the week were on actually started lean the other way because here's what I really thought it was going to happen is is just it had been told so many times, like dude, you can't keep fighting like this. You gotta rely on wrestling. You got it and rely on wrestling, and I thought he he would. And I figured this would be a bad opponent do that against because James as like really good jokes from from that position at thought that basically that's what would end up happening. But then as I kept. Hearing the through the week interviews with me and interviews, other people, you could hear it on Justice mind. He's like he said it specifically media. He's like, this is not the fight for me to stick my neck out and risk getting choked. And as soon as that was words, can I was mouth. I was like, oh, he gets it. He's not going to change going to fight the same way. And if he kept that same Ford pressuring kept saying, like, I thought that was the better scenario. But I thought so many people been harping on them about you can't fight that with any more that he was gonna turn to his wrestling and it was gonna end up being a mistake. And so I'll be honest with you by fight time. I was leaning just engaging, but you know the picture and at that point by that time just called me out. So I had I had to ride with my boy chains I picked. Did you or did you? Yeah. So the four of us did was that the crow today, I did it for a couple of reasons. One of them was just rest. I feel like Justin just hasn't had rest even back to ultimate fighter, like that's the time where you're supposed to be resting? No. I mean, it's been.

"Property has just been sold in the last couple of weeks it's been sold to company called cdc out of saint louis which specializes in buying the stress industry property and redevelopment redeveloping them so this company's head has been in janesville had a press conference couple of weeks ago and said that all likelihood the plant is finally going to be demolished in the next few months and then they'll be some environmental cleanup and other things done to try to make it ready to find new uses for that property it's unclear what those uses might be at this point but that's a big deal for janesville after a lot of time of having this plant be the center of his connie i'm guessing that probably in the course of the last many years that because of the fact that you you've had this plant that is basically sat dormant that the the population of janesville has gone down because people just you know are are fed up and they need to go find work in in some other location surprisingly the population of janesville has not gone down in the last several years i think that for a couple of reasons one people are very attached to this community and that's not to say that nobody has left defined work elsewhere but this is a community in which a lot of people have deep family roots locally and they don't wanna leave so i know people who have moved elsewhere but i know more people who have taken jobs that pay less or there's a category of former gm workers janesville who have become gm workers elsewhere not that they have moved their whole families but they're commuting long long distances one of the people i follow in the story took a job after a couple years in indiana and fort wayne indiana and leaves every monday morning and comes home late late friday nights and has been doing this for years now and has another several years to go until he's eligible to retire and that's because neither he nor his family wanna move to indiana eight four four warton is the number of you would like to join in eight four four nine four two seven eight six six we're talking with amy goldstein of the washington post talking about her book janesville in american story your comments are welcome eight four four nine four two seven eight six six is the number to give us a call and this is as you mentioned you focus on janesville but this is a story that to a degree has played out in a variety of locations around the united states in in the time of the last several years how was janesville getting by i mean obviously you're talking about a loss of the tax base there even though you know the support of the company even though you still have the people you're receiving the you know some tax relief from that perspective but on the on the city and on the county it probably was a much greater economic burden than they had expected well let me say two things on your point about this having happened in many communities that was my central idea and setting out to write this book that i wanted to tell a story that would be a microcosm of what was happening in many places in the country and with many kinds of work because that's what's been happening out of the great recession and some of the years afterwards until recently when job numbers and i mean the unemployment level has fallen but income levels have stayed quite depressed says before the great recession until recently when middle class wages have started to creep up a little bit so this really is a microcosm our metaphor so i'm hoping that many people who read the story will be able to identify with it from their own perspectives as what's happened in janesville you know this is town that's the antithesis of place that's just kind of given up i didn't know this when i decided to focus on this community for this work i did but it turns out that jay's villas quite a resilient community and they've been very strong economic development efforts to try to bring new employment town there've been a lot of efforts by grassroots social service providers to try to help people through these hard times when their workers gone away or the wages of gone way down when they found new work but even with.

"It was a funny thing because there have been rumors for years that this plant was volna rable to being closed because it was so old and kept not happening not happening and finally the day that it was announced it was one of four plants that turn on motors announced was going to be closed and none of them got a lot of notice beforehand so a lot of people obviously lost their jobs in that and as that played out and the people were you know trying to take stock of of what they could do and where their next job where their next meal was coming from what was the impact on the town itself i think we talk a lot about you know the state level and obviously with the state was trying to but when you look at the core impact at the at the city level what was it like well the impact was profound and just in terms of who lost their jobs in the last two shifts that went down there about three thousand general motors workers who lost their jobs because the plant had existed there were also a lot of supplier companies providing goods and services to general motors in town and all those people lost their jobs too so that's another few thousand workers who suddenly were unemployed and on top of that then there's this cascading effect there were small business in town that had been going for years and then suddenly could not because they weren't enough people to with enough disposable income to go shopping so there are all kinds of people who lost work among the auto workers themselves one of the things that struck me was that for quite a while there was what i think could only be called denial that these jobs we're going to stay on this plan to been around for so long and there've been times over his long history when products left and then a little bit later products would come back and the plant would keep going and i think a lot of people in janesville you know very legitimately could not imagine they had no basis for magic that this time would be different but it was it was such a long period of time that that plant was kind of dormant i saw an article yesterday that said i guess they had just reached a deal to actually do something with the with the property correct that's correct so for a number of years of this plant was the only one in the general motors firmament me anywhere in the company that was in the category called standby which meant that it was dormant but it could be opened again if market conditions warranted that went on for several years and then a couple of years ago and the most recent contract between general motors and the united auto workers the standby status was converted so that the plant was then fully closed permanently closed and that meant that it was eligible to be sold and the city leaders to janesville had wanted that because they wanted to try to find somebody else to buy it and as you said after a few years of trying to find a buyer that.

"We have seen the issue surrounding small town american manufacturing cities that were the backbone of the us economy for decades and how they have turned into something much different as companies leave those towns for other locations for a better deal we also are starting to see some of those cities make slight comebacks in transforming with maybe new business washington post amy goldstein went in depth into one of those towns janesville wisconsin which is the home of speaker of the house paul ryan they lost the general motors plant dealt with the recession that have been trying to make that comeback happened the book that she wrote is titled janesville an american story and it's great to have amy joining us here on the show right now amy welcome pickety with you thank you so tell us about your experience there in janesville because from what i understand you spent quite a bit of time really you know trying to get a feeling for what this town had been through and what they're trying i do now well i was interested in finding a community in which i could take a close up on what really happens when good jobs go away and ville very much fit the bill is an old old industrial small city in southern wisconsin the general motors plant there started making tractors in nineteen nineteen and then started making chevy's nineteen twenty three so by the time the plant closed most of the manufacturing there stopped two days before christmas of two thousand eight you can just imagine how many generations of people in janesville wisconsin has thought of this general motors plant as providing the best working class work in town so the move to close the plant by general motors was based on what it was based on the financial ill health of the company this was right in the midst of the great recession this is december of two thousand eight and the recession have begun about a year earlier and would officially go through partway through two thousand nine and at the time that the plant closing was announced which several months earlier it was just exactly a year before general motors so would file for chapter eleven bankruptcy any gold seen joining us she is the author of the book janesville an american story were talking about the the downfall and the attempt to recover by janesville right now you mentioned and i mentioned at the top that is the home of speaker of the house paul ryan what was his role in terms of this period of time with jane's obviously us probably you know trying to do whatever he could to try and take care of his own down well when the prank closing was announced it was a very strenuous bipartisan effort by both people in the community leaders in the community and in the state of wisconsin to persuade general motors to give the janesville assembly plant that was his name another product to make it had been making fullsize suv's which weren't very popular two time when gas prices if you remember had shot through the roof so congressman ryan who was a congressman but not yet committee chairman not yet a candidate for vice president and certainly not yet the speaker of the house of representatives which has been for the last couple years now he was part of that effort he of all the politicians in town probably knew best the leadership of general motors which had thought it was in their interest former relationship with him when they wanted things from congress go ahead i'm sorry go ahead well i was gonna say the story that i tell them this book begins with paul ryan being home in his kitchen over a break from congress and getting a call on his cell phone from the then ceo of general motors giving them a heads up that the plant closing announce it was to be made public the next morning so he was aware of this right from the beginning there was one point when leaders from the state and congress and the community went to detroit to plead with the leadership of general motors to try to keep the plant open or give something else to manufacturer and paul ryan was part of that trip was really nice general motors to give them what all about twelve hours notice or whatever that time frame was that this closing was going to be announced right well you know.

"He made it clear he admitted decision so we'll give them the time in the next few days and they could be it's another one of those rumblings or it could be it could be exactly the decisions made probably that what do you know about him over the years paul's is a great friend and a great leader wonderful guy i always loved the kid i grew up in delvin small little town about twenty minutes down the road from janesville when we were kids we're a couple of years apart we both worked at mcdonalds and i love to tell on him to tell his manager said he had to flip hamburgers in the back because he didn't have the interpersonal skills to work the for a cash register always laughed when he first became the speaker was sitting behind president obama wondering what his manager was thinking now that he was the speaker of the house of representatives but paul over the years has really stepped up but it was from that time as a kid highschool remember his dad passed away when he was still a teenager and so he had to grow up pretty quickly along the way he was many ways jack kemp in particular when you worked for power america jack kemp was very much quite literally a father figure for him and so much of the work you've seen him focus on in the past was about fighting poverty in a way very similar to the way jack kemp dead and he's a policy one i remember when i talked to him quite a bit when he was being considered for speaker that was the job of people kind of snark as they go just say that paul never wanted to be speaker he's not a political guy he's not a political junkie he's a policy walk through and thrilling show for him one of the biggest things he wanted to reform the tax code and obviously that was a big part of the work he did the end of last year.

"Does it mean now that the house speaker is among that list of republicans saying you know what i'm not running again because i think paul ryan gave some very personal reasons for making this decision but i think you also have to view it in the context of a whole lot of people making a similar decision of course i mean they they will say that the midterm politics had no factor in his decision but you know i was talking to other republican members this morning he said it's just not going to be good for morale right it's just not a sign of confidence in your majority even if it has nothing to do with it and not just his decision but also when speaker does something like that the kind of chilling effect it can have on grassroots enthusiasm on fundraising although i will say that paul ryan has spent this congress raising a ton of money and is already transferred over forty million dollars to the house republican campaign operations so he's clearly trying to leave the party with the financial resources they need to run competitive elections but they are now according to the cook political report about nine ninety house seats that would can be considered in play that's that's amazing because of how these districts are drawn for there to be ninety seats in play into the last cycle we struggled to come up with like forty yeah so for there to be ninety is really something else and one of those competitive races now is paul ryan seat you know his his janesville area wisconsin district would not have been competitive if he was the incumbent most likely but it is competitive now this can be considered a tossup race in part because there is an established democrat randy bryce who's running for the nomination he's raised over two million dollars the iron stash iron stash guy he is on air he's got a grassroots campaign he is running a real operation and an open seat race in wisconsin in this climate means the democrats have a real shot at picking up paul ryan seat in november and it's only like a lean republican district in most years anyway you know because of just the bent of the district but because of ryan's name identification he's able to usually win it fairly easily.
