time there's also a normal family involved virginal Trish her mother her creepshow James a couple of canoed link counselors with a spear and then chops a handicap dude in the face before rolling his wheelchair down the steps Jason is hurt he's injured but he recharge his batteries by stealing some clean clothes and by stabbing a woman in the head with her own has his own style and he takes his time picking off Chris's Friend's one at a time a trio of bad ass bikers show up to get spirit onto the eyeball hot poker to the chest this one dude is walking on his hands and gets bisected crotch Drinking whiskey in the kitchen telling scary stories around the fire music engineer dickhead named Shelley Jason Dispatches in the quickly so that he can get back to business impalement electrocution Trish before she even encounters any slaughter gets worried about her family and heads home where she finds that her mom is already missing well he's dead but wait after Jason's corpse has been loaded into the ambulance and brother Tommy Who's really into horror Trish gets invited to the Party and even though she lives at Crystal Lake and knows the Stories Hill Shelley the aforementioned Dickhead who's always playing pranks and trying to scare his friends he was wearing hockey mask when he died in Tommy is alone scared Jason has followed her home and the siblings barricade themselves in but he's awesome she beats his ass but the man just won't die he won't stop coming Langley she chops his face with an axe China's with a spear knife corkscrew acts his own hand he finds really Nice Harpoon Gun and uses it to list which she is now ready to step up and declare agency for herself she smashes Jason in the head with a shovel she had possibly strong and he smashes his way into the House Tommy knows who Jason is and he uses his razor takes it off of shelley and puts it on and he finds that it fits just right chases Chris into the barn that another group of attractive young people are preparing to have a party where they're gonNA smoke some grass drink some beer long enough for Trish to pick up his machete and chop his skull width all it does is knock office hockey mask revealed ling him to be grotesque deformed and perhaps even rotting Tommy grabs the machete she decides what the heck let's give it a shot same time Jason is going Kuku left a guy off the ground by his crotch before pulling the trigger and then he nails up another guy's corpse into the door frame just to block an exit I am Tommy Jarvis is a Looney bin for the obvious reasons Tommy keeps seeing Jason every and he goes nuts with it chopping Jason Pieces Trish in Tommy taken to the morgue he jumps off the table he finds a couple of orderlies getting ready to plough and slaughters them feeling sharp horror makeup techniques to make himself look like young Jason Voorhees and this confuses the killer because he's not very smart law into a halfway house like old good halfway houses it's filled with attractive young people who like to smoke grass drink beer both live through the night Jason he did not but wait there's this local ambulance driver whose kid got killed at that very halfway house so logically he decided Downey's start to get butchered by a man in a hockey mask has jason returned from the dead yet again or has and along the way he learns a little bit about himself the future it was looking pretty damn bright for Tommy Jarvis Russell like Jason and start killing everyone for revenge I guess Tommy Manages to kill the impostor Jason once upon a time there was a little boy named Jason Jason Voorhees Jason was always Hami just lost his remaining morals and turned into the thing he fears most well it turns out neither see but wait five more years go by and Tommy is decided that or closure mm-hmm and fool around one by one and two by two the house residence the staffers and even the for himself so he sneaks into the cemetery digs up the body and when he sees Jason Voorhees five years later which turned out to be very bad move because dude with thunderstorm Jason is revived when lightning hits that fence her finally it's starting to sink in that this is just his mind playing tricks on with this progress he is transferred for Real Z's no deals ease for keeps he needs to go back to crystal lake and see Jason's corpse corpse you get so pissed off that he ripped off a metal fence post and sturt stabbing the inhuman madman right through the heart Jason puts his mask back on and starts hiking back to his old killing grounds where it turns out some count I in his chest he wakes up stronger faster and more supernatural horror that ever kinds of limbs to Tina unleashes her formidable mental abilities on Jason and it culminates he was an honest to goodness monster when he makes his way back to Camp Crystal Lake he finds for ever but wait because there's a tiffany contraction cold poll chainsaw which is usually used for trimming tree limbs but it turns out to work on other woman named Tina in Tina's deeply trouble because when she was a kid she accidentally on purpose killed her dad with her mental powers drowning him in the waters of crystal lake now as an attractive teenager she's come back with her therapist jams a boat engine propeller into his neck and syncs them to the bottom of crystal lake leaving him there Zain is rampaging like never before ripping off limbs chopping off three heads with one swipe overturning an RV has to shore he starts to do what he does best luckily for him next door to Tina's house is another house out to be those very abilities that resurrect Jason who still down at the bottom of the lake and as he drags his waterlogged car in an epic battle where the cabin itself explodes around them as Jason Moves in for the kill on the shores of crystalline aac Tina summons her dead asked daddy who rises up and drags Jason Back to the bottom of the lake once Jason out to the middle of Crystal Lake the same lake where Jason allegedly drowned all those years ago it chains or rock around him and then just to work through these daddy issues make peace with her past and to channel her preternatural abilities it turns fooling around all that time in the lake really heightened Jason's creativity when it comes to murder there are a group of attractive young people gathering for a party and they're pretty psyched about smoking some grass drinking some beer for some reason the sheriff doesn't believe this former mental patient when he says Zombie serial killer on the rampage and Jason Look a fallen dinosaur before Jason had been an unstoppable maniac but now full of little children in lucky for them Jason doesn't go for the young stuff and remains content by picking off the Camp Council this time he kills people with axes and knives machetes his hands of course but he also uses the sleeping bag a party horn in a really art until the cops show up and he kills them to and then it's all up to crazy Tommy Jarvis to save the day you lord and for all but wait then some years pass and then these two Roy Scheider before him Jason thanks ill need a bigger boat and so he jumps on board an ocean liner bound active young people are canoed laying out on a house boat when they accidentally drag power cable up against Jason's body by this point all know how he gets fired up off that juice Jason Wakes up climbs aboard and he slaughters them both like or New York City I'm not sure how an ocean liner it's into a lake but it did better yet and maybe full around a little bit this ends up not being a great crews in most of the young people are murdered horribly Jason even manages to kill the crew and sink the whole ship when the survivors ah it's filled with attractive young people and on the trip they plan smokes grass drink some beer thing young punks junkies and Attitudinal New Yorkers they all end up in the sewers escaped in a life raft into Manhattan Jason Chases them through the city and they have a series of misadventures involved just minutes before the city is set to flood them all with toxic waste I'm with you I didn't wake because it turns out that the reason that Jason never died no that New York City regularly flooded its own sewers with toxic waste but it does this is what's great about watching movies you learn shit parasite living inside of after Jason gets killed by the FBI the coroner Jason needs to possess the body of someone from his own bloodline only then can he be reborn coroner Jason sees his own reflection in every mirror he starts stomping back towards Crystal Lake only this time I which brings the saga of Jason Voorhees to a close bought at the same time we find out that only person from that

Let's put smart to work. Visit IBM. Dot Com, Slash Watson Assistant. Cried Passion than pattern tree of college. Football leaves here. Paul Finebaum, show our four podcast. We welcome you back. The final hour has arrived. We're anticipating conversation later with the SEC Commissioner Greg. Sankey we'll continue with your phone calls. Until then at eight, five, five, two, four, two, seven, two, eight, five, and Jason is up next. Jason Good afternoon. Welcome to our program. Good how you doing today Paul. We're doing great. Good Hey just a question and obviously I know you you might not have the answer this, but some more so just looking for your opinion, rather than you know an answer, explain it. but I was looking at some stats And going back to H One n one. If you remember that I'm sure you do. Back in two thousand nine. from the CDC according to the CDC the College Age, group kids We're talking nineteen to twenty four. Years Old and. There was almost nine hundred a deaths. from that. in that age group and there's been less than one hundred. Deaths in that age group for covid nineteen. As so just again, opinion. I guess Why. Why was no discussion about cancelling college football your h one n one. when there was what roughly nine times as many deaths in college age group versus Cope. It's just kind of get your opinion on that. Yeah No I. Don't know I think you know with every one of these conversations with. H One n One you know. I vaguely remember the conversation Zeka i. mean all these things came and went? You're concerned the first time you heard it, and then you forgot about it, I mean this was just a little different situation. Because what you say that has I made this statement to my father. The Day We still had social media back in. and I'm not saying. Social media calls as increase in deaths and all that. Obviously, we know that. But thirty years old, and so we're talking back I mean. I was still old enough. They'd be on social media. I made the statement that I. Feel like I. I don't remember much about it because we weren't living in the age of social media back then, would you? Social media was there, but but I will tell you this Know, even know I mean the PR- The election of Barack Obama certainly you know split split a lot of people in this country. I think that would be an understatement just like George, Bush, and allegoric, just like all of these except I don't remember. As, many people politicizing every single thing Maybe, I'm just being naive. I think the media I'll say this. As a member of the media I'm I i. don't care what anyone thinks. My my opinion but but I think the media has has taken sides here. I would agree with some of the people out there that I'm sure you agree to a point. Where a lot of a lot of the early reporting of this was overdone We had a guest Alex Berenson a couple of weeks ago. We worked AT THE NEW YORK. Times and I agree with that. I I'm conflicted because I I've. been around long enough to see through the media bias, but I bought, but I also hear from enough people in the medical world that. That have a completely different view of that that that really do take this very seriously may. I I'll listen to anybody's opinion on this subject. I really will. Right and I agree with you. I do last question. Hang up with the whole mass. I'm not coming out saying I'm against mask. Okay? I'm not saying that at all, but one question that comes to mind. As you've seen the huge majority of deaths, all across the US have been in nursing home. Sure absolutely all right and I know at least here in our area in Alabama. nursing homes have been on lockdown Gosh. Since the very beginning of this thing as the only people allowed in or employees, and those employees have been required to have masks on literally the whole time so The question comes up to me. Is How effective or mass? I if if it's still spread like wildfire in nursing homes, how're those patients getting it? If all the employees have mask on, and there's only one in the building, and I'll hang up and listen to you. Yeah, it's a good question. I can't answer it. I mean there's most questions I can't answer on this subject and I'm Gonna I'm GonNa try but but it's all fair. And but. I. I think you're yeah. I think most people know where the dangerous zones are. You go into a crowded bill, crowded a restaurant or bar, and and and you're more likely to get it there. Then you will at a grocery store while while you're moving around But Again. What we're talking about here is not so virus. What we're talking about here is whether young people can get back to school in the fall, and whether we can have a college football season I'm not I'm not trying to act like I'm not concerned about the rest of it I am. I'm a citizen. Just like you are, but This is a sports show, or at least it was Let's get back to the calls and talk to Greg. Who is in Iowa Hello Greg? Hey Paul first time long time, thank you. I just want to pose a question to you. That's non covert political. That's right. Sure I'm calling from Iowa and. Curious these non conference. Big Ten games. That are played at Gerry world. What do you think about them being home and especially later in the year? How do you feel that SEC teams or fair up in big ten country? Don't Florida Yeah. I would love to see it I I am officially bored to death with these neutral site games I would much rather see Alabama go to southern cal and the same that way or Wisconsin or Michigan. Than I, think we're moving toward that down the road. but I just I've been to all these games and the. Past at college. Football should be played on campuses. They shouldn't be played. In billion dollar buildings that that really I mean it's okay. If you're gonNA play, the you can play is bad enough the playoffs. Places I don't want to see the first game or the second game of the season played there I. Mean Look at last year and Austin. When Lsu went there it was amazing I remember Alabama did Alabama play at Lambeau couple years ago. I did LSU play. She played at Lambeau Yeah. That to me. I mean. Be Creative I mean I I when I cover in college football many years ago, it was that was. That's what excited me. The most good I covered a game at Lincoln Nebraska Notre Dame. Norman. Oklahoma Penn state I mean to me. Those memories lasted for lifetime I I can't re I. Mean I've been to so many games juries, world and Glendale and Atlanta and went to game last year in Orlando. I mean these games to me. Are just a bore. Right right. Especially later in the year. I think you'd be great. Oh, I mean, can you? Can you imagine I mean? Yeah, it's about Alabama played one of the years I was covering Alabama. They played November mid November game at state. College and it was amazing to be in Pennsylvania when the leaves had turned or were in the process of turning versus Know the you won't get those games anymore there to two conflicting for the playoff, but hey, thanks for the call, really really appreciate it some great stuff there we are heading to break. and.

So happy last year as you might well imagined with Lsu perfect even was New Orleans for the. Championship game and it just at the team. Tell seems like it's been an eternity. The last four to five months January so promising but Paul I I would be remiss, if but in want to. Just mentioned a couple of things. So you hope you give me time and and I want be a diplomatic. It's possibly can so forgive me if I'm trying to get my thoughts together here. Take you with every with everything going on in our country Colbert. With the the rioting with black. Life Matters Paul. I'm I'm an American. I'm, GonNa White. American I have. My heritage is if European Italian French and German Prada. and. I understand that the message that that that black lives matters with Liz. What was trying to send everybody, but but my greatest fear and with the risk. If might offend somebody your call, but I I'm I'm coming from the heart. Because I grew up I'm I'll be sixty five I grew up, and if anybody out, there remembers the movie, remember the titans. You remember the movie The football movie much tighter. Wood, that was me. That was my high school. West Jefferson High School in Harvey Louisiana in Nineteen, Seventy, two seventy, three played football I went through the same when I seen that movie at Cork back so many memories, but my fear is this is that to me? All lives matter. And what I mean by that is that my fear. Is that when I talked to? To my kids when I talk to. The, the. The the the young generation now. Is it seems like the media is slipping to white guilt them and they're ashamed of their parents their shane does their coq of their history with the history idea that taken. With any of that I. Think history we learned from history. We grow from history and a quick story. I can tell you and it released today. Nineteen sixty eight. I remember vividly. When Martin Luther King Dr Martin Luther King was tragically assassinated. My. Father and mother had a little talion grocery. And the what of New Orleans called Algiers I'm sure you've heard of Oh sure showing the inner city of of that. At that time it was it was a mixed neighborhood. They'll african-american. They were German Americans. Irish Italian French everything and Wallet in the area, my dad had a fantastic local grocery. He was in the butcher. We worked out well in nineteen sixty eight. The day that Luther King was shot. My Dad received a phone call. And it was from an African American. That tool them either you close store down. For the Martin Luther King Funeral. Or with burn down. My Dad was a infantry combat veteran from the Korean. War got a purple heart. that he he had to shrapnel in his leg, he died and then when they took. A pork, Chop Hill in Korea and he said I'm not clothing store so for a week. My Dad operated his store. I was about twelve thirteen at time. And operated start with a handgun side. and. He was never robbed. Never. Never alluded. He sold out of everything the best we can and his life. A mile down the road whether it was the famous. But National Chan used to be a and P I'm sure you heard of. They used to be day NPR, Atlantic Pacific mortgage that compete close that hey, and P in observance, but that amp was lewd. Bon burned and our whole block. We had A. A. Barber barbershop, we had a grocery a grocery store. We had a hardware store. We had a restaurant and the church corner. Nothing was touched a whole block mile away. That was done so when I've seen these people businesses being learning burn, it brought such anger told me, and I was trying to control myself. You know I'll I was in being checked the whole time, but my wife on my children that you know. I hate to move on we we are. We are waiting a on I if I give you a chance to wrap this up if you could. Okay. Yeah thank you so much. I know it might offend a lot of people, but I want to say that that just like is proud without being racist, just like if you can be proud to be black or any, you can pre proud to be white, and it shouldn't be an issue in our country. If everybody everybody should live together in peace. Thankful thank you very much again. The commissioner the southeastern conference will join us in just a moment. Let's. Talk to. Rowdy up next hey rowdy. To our program good afternoon. Rowdy there. if I can hear rowdies button correctly. Some of this is my fault. let me try. Eric is up, next air go right ahead. Yes, Paul One in the spring sports. down. Some of the athletes were granted an extra year. If. All the fall sports or shutdown. Will that do you think that will happen? With the fall. Play Yeah I do whether they wanted or not I believe. They will be given that opportunity. I don't really. I don't think that's a that's a tough decision to make. What about underclassmen you think that would be? For every player on every I I would imagine I can't answer that I. think that would be a hard hard one to answer because you're. You're now putting five classes and four. That could be pretty crowded. again! I'll defer to the professionals on that. Okay thanks Paul. Thank you very much. That's a complex issue there, but. Fortunately we have not. Gotten there yet. Deborah is up next in South Carolina Debbie. You're on the air. Go right ahead. there. Every. Yes, I'm here. Jer orb. Everybody of to the gentleman that just folks you know. He said we should all live together or be happy and you know live together. He talked about you know in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty eight. When Martin Luther King you know to me. He was glorifying his father. But my my problem is we all want to live. You know I'm African American I. Don't bother nobody, but when a black person is out there being shot and being killed, because they're black, because they're walking on the wrong side of the street or because they think they're in the wrong place at the wrong time. You know that is horrible. People you know are trying to live we as African. American, we're trying to live just like everybody else we deserve to have. The American right that everybody else had. We are tired of being down. You know being Press and press because of the color of our skin. It's wrong, we. Put into America just like everybody else, but you don't ever hear about fat people. Put fear out there. Talking about you know the the Bombing and Having Places torn down because of a writing and Louis looting. Not only back people do that not only African American do that, but there's a reason behind it. They do it because we can't sit down and talk and be human being with other people in America, so we have to get Pinson somehow. Debra, thank you so much for sharing that. And and I appreciate it. I know there's a lot of frustration. On that subject and we have talked about it and we will. Continue to talk about The cursor of the southeastern conference just out of a meeting was his.

When it became known that the SEC was going to meet in person, in Birmingham, today it had been a regular scheduled meeting, but regardless it was extraordinary. It is now over the SEC has just released. A statement! Saying that no decisions were made today about the upcoming college football season. We hope to get more on that from the Commissioner of the southeastern. Conference Greg Sankey, commissioner? Thank you very much. I know it has been. A Very Long. Day Good afternoon. Has Been that and right from a meeting to the Finebaum show what could be a better way to cap a busy busy Monday. Well I, we've all we've I've I've read your statement about Hoping to gain more information or Waiting at least. To the end of the month and I'm curious based on what you have been saying. In terms of the prospects of the season and the concerns and the fact that things. You said the other day you, you're running out of time to correct things What are you looking for? And what are you? What is your conference looking for over these next two to three weeks? That will help you. Identify the proper decision to move forward. There are any number of. Opportunities to learn which is the way we've always viewed What was it play out, so we'll go back to April. One of the guiding points and I think I've shared with you this. This comment from one of our faculty members is take as long as you can to make major decisions because you will have better information. so my comments last week over the weekend on Mardian McGee or an indication that the trends. Are Not what we desired not what we had experienced a bit earlier in the summer very much in the wrong direction, and that that's problematic. That doesn't mean that's the finish line. Things will never change. We've seen the news around cove in nineteen. alter itself in different ways over a number of weeks. And so what we've identified, it is an opportunity in late July. foreign important check in the see what our public health reality, so that's one big picture element. We were told from the beginning. Take as much time as possible. You make better decisions we've also. Experienced since June eighth the ability to support our student athletes and a very healthy way, within our athletics, programs or other activities that are permitted today, more that could come for most program beginning, July twenty fourth, which NCAA is permitted third point, the autonomy, five conferences have been working diligently now for weeks and months to develop a common testing expectation. Expectation an isolation expectation. The NCAA after the Senate Commerce Committee hearing in which I participated in Washington DC has been engaging in developing similar standards for its entire membership, but his worked collaboratively over the last eight or nine days I think we're moving towards a destination for those protocols and I know that we as five conferences have been working diligently our. Our colleague conferences at the bowl subdivision. Or awaiting those other others in Division One are also waiting those expectations. The fourth is all it's happening. In the return of sports at the professional level over the next few weeks, so we saw major league soccer I watch more major league soccer last night than I. Ever have in my life, but I've read their protocols. Major League Baseball's active. That's A. First Pitch I think July twenty third where teams are going to be moving around. We've read their health protocols. A NASCAR race Wednesday, that is in a what was a football stadium several years ago in Bristol Tennessee with thirty thousand fans in attendance first time to see a larger crowd if that opportunity still exists so all of those are important learning opportunities, but the fundamental is my first point, which is we have to see? See a change in public health trend to build the comfort that will have an opportunity to compete this fall and plenty of people can say Oh, you shouldn't. It's not going to happen. Make predictions, and they go back to Governor Cuomo in June. WHO said I'm done with predictions. I'm done with models. We're GONNA. Look at the facts, and that's what we've been doing diligently for months now and we'll do over the next few weeks. Commissioner Greg Sankey with this commissioner. Last week we saw a one of your colleagues in the big ten. make his decision their decision about. Playing Only Conference Games to the PAC twelve followed suit I'm certain. That was discussed today, can you? Can you enlighten us on where the SEC is on all conference play? we are not at that destination in a number of our colleague. Conferences are not at that destination, so the big ten made its decision. We have no. common games with the big ten conference this year. Just one of those realities in our schedule, so the the impact of their decision is indirect, which it provokes the question. We. Did have two games with the PAC twelve the USC Alabama game scheduled the played in Dallas. And then Colorado and Texas am so we've had minimal direct impact on our schedule had a call Friday afternoon with Larry Scott actually on Thursday night. After the big ten conversation Larry gave us a more complete update on some of their circumstances, understanding the realities within the state of California and the governor made some decisions today, also the the realities in Arizona disrupted. Disrupted preparatory activities they also had three games in the PAC twelve and weeks zeros as explained to me and so right now they could look down and down the road and say we've got some likely disruption, so they made their decision. you seen statements from my colleagues in the big twelve in the ACC, consistent with our thinking that choose time to the extent, it's available to gather information, and we'll make determinations an appropriate time as we see fit. I want to ask you about what what you said about because you said. We need to see a change in in public health. Trends. What are you need to see before? You feel comfortable? Letting the SEC play football this fall. Well that's the beauty of time is I've said to you before. It's an asset slipping away. It's rapidly slipping away from a metric standpoint and we've talked about what are the right evaluative tools? campuses are doing the same. And the the fact that we've seen increasing cases over the last few weeks across our region is not a positive indicators. So that's just a statement I will won't provide a number. I don't think that's the right direction. I think using our medical guidance actually expanding the talk to additional experts in the medical field about what may be happening how how things trail, or or how change may be effective if people he even more intentionally public health warnings those. Are The points of information that we're valuing and and we have to watch what happens in and obviously upward trends are problematic for us all. I'm sure you talked to leading medical officials. I know you've already alluded to that Can you share with us? What what they're telling you about the models for the next couple of weeks when you have to make that decision. Well, you know they. They should speak for themselves so me. Paul just you know the difficulty and me trying to interpret really what a? Scientist says to me. I'm smart enough to know that I won't be as effective as they. When through couple phone calls last week where you you realize. What you can see that the the public health trends or not what we had hoped, not what we are seeing in May and June, their house to be more intent more focus. On heating the guidance that's been provided on distancing. I'm gathering on face masks, breathing masks on. on hand sanitation as I understand. treatments or better, we still have a lot of unknowns in in those realities in in every one of those conversations has ended with, but it'll be important to watch what happens over the next two or three weeks. Those aren't overly hopeful. Comments and I want to be clear about that the realistic, but the reminder of how we have to watch what's happening in the health arena around us and and I. Take those those points guidance seriously. I realize you already said time. Is Not necessarily on your side. You have a little bit more time, but you know hate to keep harping on public health trends, but that's what we're all watching. Is there anything specific that? Your group is looking at that will help trigger your decision, one way or the other. Not that I think I'd communicate publicly right now I think the global expectation that these trends are not in the positive direction. fundamentally we have said we're going to be attentive to the the health of our student. Athletes also of our staffs in if we have the opportunity, expand to our fans in and we're now. Over a month in in caring and supporting our student athlete, Twelve and supporting our staff around them, so that's that's been a very positive indicator. We've seen different parts in different numbers, but those are learning experiences where despite the kind of guidance we see, even publicly, people have had to adapt and learn, so we need that same adaptation broadside away. The the activities that I need to see or that. We need to see our the ability for hospitals and healthcare systems to manage what's happening with covid nineteen and and I. Sit here today talking to you, not knowing what will happen in the fall. But I also feel a responsibility not to just say okay, we're done. over headed this direction at this time, and I've been very consistent in that communication that extent. We can use time to make decisions. I'M GONNA. He'd dot guidance given to me really in early April that will have more information to make better decisions because what we have to understand is we haven't been through this before. I. I wish I had set of charts and playbook that said here's all the simple answers. There are no simple answers and we've seen colleagues make decisions ultimately. We're going to have to make a decision. We understand that and we're GONNA do exactly what we've guided. which is continue to learn, continue to gather information and continuing consultation all the while. We support young people as best we can. Commissioner. What you're going to second I know it's been a really long day, but you. We've talked many times, and we've heard from other colleagues of yours on this program about collaborative efforts, and then this as I alluded, the story came out the other day about the the big ten. It seemed I'm sitting here. You're involved that that a lot of people were surprised by that so I'm interested how? To the finish line collaborative collaboratively, or is it going to be every conference for themselves? I don't know that it's every conference for ourselves, but obviously people made decision so. I don't we've talked enough and I've talked to so many people and I'm I'm used to long day so I'm in great shape for the long days. but I observed that what happened in March is a really good indicator of what may happen as we look towards the fall which is. Groups of of universities conferences made independent decisions. Now we all ended up at the same destination in, and you'll recall in a very compressed period of time those decisions were announced, and they were made, and then announced at different times, and I indicated. That's a good example of what we could see this summer and low and behold. That's what's happened now whether we all end up at the same destination remains to be seen, but just like in March just like I predict that we have made decisions now that connection which I've also referenced Is Different now. And those who've made decisions have indicated why I've I've shared a little bit more insight into the PAC twelve, which has at least some direct impact on our schedules. And I've explained our perspective and an our basis for thinking. It's wise to wait and today we have other colleague. Conferences joined in that broach. Final Question just from this point. It's the thirteenth of July and I know that Deadlines are not easy to to determine, but as this meeting ended today within that room is there. Is there a date that that all of you are pointing towards to make some sort of decision? not that I would specify so I've talked about late. July and I've always observed that fundamental truth that. Way To make major decisions. We're going to have better information, and so we're going to be patient you know. There are realities around opponents. I would expect some communication this week as we look towards, maybe some sports other than football, and how we approach those, but we want to be respectful of the important role, our presidents and chancellors make our decisions I referenced The medical guidelines, which are really an important part of our decision making and how we we operationalize those you know I don't think it's a secret to anyone, but there are challenges around testing. and and we've probably you and I probably talked about that over time. In fact, you ask me once, what's one thing I probably should have VAT set vaccine, but I was living in the realistic world that the ability, the half reliable available in timely testing was. Was it the top of that list? If you recall that conversation, that's still true. And in order to facilitate, what may come the opportunity to play? That reality around testing is going to be very very important and I would still. If you ask me today I might say well, if I can't have a vaccine than that. Testing ability is going to be critical to US moving forward. Commissioner thank you We really appreciate it as always a an update on what's been going on we will continue to follow it and hopefully talk to you again very soon. Thanks. Paul and I think I've always said probably missed once or twice, but stay healthy as a mantra for those and heating. The advice and I got a lot of twitter activity about a very clear statement unmasking those reality, so we need people to be participants, but we've been saying that for months, and hopefully we can turn the corner a bit as we move forward. All the Best Commissioner. Thank you thank you very much. Thanks, Paul we are officially out of time for this program. We appreciate all of you for being a part of it some really interesting guests today. Will see you right here tomorrow? Thank you for listening to the Paul Finebaum Show podcast the Paul Finebaum show airs weekdays on the SEC network beginning at three eastern.

Chinese Communists, Hong Kong and Impeachment

"Wall Street Journal listeners come from all walks of life and business and no matter what type of business urine eighty P is here to help you achieve what you're working king for with. HR talent time benefits and payroll informed by data and designed for people learn more at design done eighty p dot com from the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac. Watch welcome to the Wall Street journals Potomac Watch. I'm bill mcgurn filling in for Paul to go and with me are to my colleagues Jason Jason Good to be here and Kyle Peterson then today too big as we want to talk about one is in China the People's Republic celebrated its seventieth anniversary of when Mao stood stood on Tiananmen Square nounce to formation of his government people in Hong Kong. Don't seem to be very happy with that. We'll talk about that and then we want talk about what the latest is an impeachment and particularly what it's going to mean for the next democratic debate which I believe is two weeks from today so so let's get started kyle. What do you th- what how do we put the founding of the People's Republic in historical perspective? I mean it's outlasted the Soviet Union Union all these other communist societies. Why is that well? It's it's got power. It's got strength. I mean what what strikes most about the reporting on National Day is the juxtaposition so on one hand you have this demonstration of raw Chinese power military power. you have tanks rolling by Tenement Square. You have ten thousand troops goosestepping intercontinental ballistic missiles on trucks that are rolling by supersonic drones reportedly and then on the other the other hand. You have protests continuing in Hong Kong where people are fighting fighting for the deal that they thought they had made when Britain left and you have the first protester who has been shot reportedly into arm reportedly a high school all student and it just showed goes to show you know how how China keeps keeps its authority is by putting people under the thumb right well Jason Part of that though is one reason I would argue having lived in Hong Kong ten years that China is still around while the Soviet Union they used to have the big military sorry parades and the my and they were fermentable power. I think one difference is the Chinese wisely open to the market under Deng Xiaoping in Nineteen seventy-nine and though it's it's not it's clearly not the free market as we would know it. It's free and it's open to trade and that has has greatly Lee increase the wealth of the average Chinese citizen you know when I was there people called it market Leninism and there's something to that because communism awesome is always been much more about Lennon power than it has been about marks in an economic arrangement yeah after the Soviet Union collapsed I think some Western commentators thought well this is the end of sort of communist systems and regimes that don't depend on the consent of the people and that that aren't liberal democracies. This is the end of the line for them but China has been able to thread the needle. It's gotten the benefits of market growth and its legitimacy to some extent sent rests on these fantastic increases in living standards for ordinary people and in exchange for that it's able to maintain its authority. So what you're saying is basically the it's called at least some dissent. There is still dissenters and they do what communist regimes always do they check them in jail. If you get to ornery but the they've been able to buy off the people at least in this sense and it's not an unreasonable bargain for the people who make if if I feel tomorrow's ours is going to be better than today and especially that my children will have a brighter future than I am. I May Not WanNa rock the boat. That's what they seem to be banking on right so they're very very vulnerable to a downturn. Yeah I mean I mean that's not even so different from democracies when democracies are delivering growth for people than the incumbent administration incumbent government is less likely to face a stronger challenge from arrival and with China. That's yes that does seem to be the whole model kyle you know looking at history to one of the the extraordinary things to me is how Mao in communism are kind of considered jokes in some way the imagery as opposed to Stalin Dolon in the Soviet Union and mouth of course killed lots and lots of people and subjected them to crazy things like the great leap forward and the Cultural Revolution. I mean in a sense the greatest disaster for the Chinese people has been to have the triumph of communism there right and one one of the things is notable in interesting in in recent years has been you know after this fall of the Soviet Union the idea on Orwellian state was a sort of dismissed whereas now China is really pioneering the use of technology to make that kind of a society -IETY to stand in a way that was not possible before I mean you read some of the stories about the the social credit system that they're implementing where you know your ability to get a loan or travel. Even is based in part on how loyal you've been to the party. Maybe how loyal your family has been to the party. that's another element enough of it to certainly bears looking out. That's a big element today in our newspaper. We have an article by Jimmy Lai who is a a friend of Milton Friedman's a Hong Kong resident who's been a big advocate of democracy and freedom for China and a lot of people point out Jason that would kyle's talking about is for years you could argue China was moving from totalitarian system. You know remember the Mao suits everyone's dressing the same and the the sessions Sion's were. If you had any kind of western education you'd be the make you wear done sat in the sent the educated people out to the farms you could argue. They moved away from that to become a more authoritarian country where you couldn't challenge their political rule but you could do a lot more economically and you're a lot more free people I started having access to the outside world but now what caused talked about particularly the two things like the facial recognition features so if you walk into an airport they know who you who are in these social credit scores were if they think you're a problem you might not get that flight to Shanghai that you are counting on you might not get that job and and if you look at what sheeting Pakistan a lot of people would say he is a lot more power than now did or at least trying to get it and look he's. He's locked act up the way he's persecuting the Tibetan Buddhists. He's persecuting the Falun Gong. He's tearing down Christian churches. I think the only people aren't being persecuted accused the Jews because there aren't any yeah I think what we said. In our editorial is there was some hope after Deng Xiaoping's economic opening that China could become a relatively not not an open society but in the model of some of these other Asians yeah these transitioning democracies Aussies and so on but instead you've seen beginning Hu Jintao in especially under Xi Jinping that there's a complete change. Yeah I mean cracking down on Hong Kong the surveillance systems you know in Nepal and Brennan Jiang being pioneered there and then being used against Chinese people you you know Oliver the rest of the country he's he and you know also a more hawkish posture toward Taiwan interfering more aggressively there so you're definitely seeing you're definitely seeing G. Tighten his grip a return to or well you know in the when Tiananmen Square happened if if you remember you guys are probably too young but a lot of the information the fax machine was a revolutionary tool because people faxed information in and out of China it was really before the computing revolution and that meant that they weren't cut off from access. I believe China cut. CNN's cable at one point but through faxes magic effects is people were and now of course you have people with access to a lot of information so at the time it was thought that or will had been turned on his head right that I think that the digital revolution empower the individual and now we're seeing you know the the kind of Orwellian view fighting back that they're going to control troll and that's why you know in Hong Kong. The protesters are tearing down these towers that have facial recognition features because they don't want. They don't want to be known yeah. I think I think that's happening in China and it also happened in the Middle East where in the Arab spring we thought people who had twitter and who had social media we're going to be able to you know topple the government democratize the flow of information instead. It's been something more like the reverse and China's on the cutting edge of making that happen right. We're going to take a little break right now. You've been listening to Potomac Watch from the Wall Street Journal Wall Street Journal listeners come from all walks of life and business and no matter what type of business you're in eighty P is here to help you achieve what you're working for with. HR talent time benefits and payroll informed formed by data and designed for people learn more at design done eighty p dot com you from the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac. Watch we'RE BACK WITH POTOMAC. Watch from the Wall Street Journal on Bill mcgurn filling in for Paul Zhigo with my colleagues Kyle Peterson and Jason will call just to wrap up the China thing. I think sometimes people don't realize again the absolute disaster astor that that Communist China has been for the Chinese people some there are a lot of people were very romantic about Mao and back you know backed him during the worst abuses and so forth by contrast Taiwan and Hong Kong showed what a free Chinese people people could do you know in terms of their productivity and so forth and now that's under threaten Hong Kong again. We saw a lot of violence last night but most of the people aren't violent silence. What does what does this tell us? The people of Hong Kong who are completely unarmed say we're not going gentle into that good night. We do not want to be part part of China. I saw a recent thing you know when I lived in Hong Kong twenty years ago if you ask people what they were that say Chinese Cantonese now they say Hong on Congress. They don't want to be identified as trying to because they don't like China yeah and it's not quite clear how this standoff will end. I mean so far China has shown Joan has has not moved in military leader. Hong Kong has not really cracked down in the way that certainly has the power to but yeah I mean it just shows the the the juxtaposition I mean you talked about the disaster. A Communist China has banned. I mean the one child policy is a good example Levette. You re just a really horrific stories. people's personal stories about their their that that policy touching their lives on another example is is pollution. I mean the the economic studies of these things show that communist totalitarian regimes are just terrible ruble terrible on the pollution and it's I mean it's there's there's huge weaknesses their free societies that allow protests are stronger you know they're they're good good ideas that bubble up in Rice's service and they also attracts people. I mean America has has a lot of Nobel prize winners who have moved to its shores over the past fifty years. They're not a lot of great scientists who are moving into China bright right for all its technical skills so I would just say it did to this observer. It does not look like there is a happy ending for Hong Kong and one difference with Tiananmen Square is that when China crack down then Beijing was not a world class financial center which Hong Kong is and and no city in China no matter how rich it is Shanghai or so forth can take the place of Hong Kong because the world class financial center includes reputation and the rule of flaw so there's a lot at stake there for China's well as Hong Kong. Let's switch now to an end patron Jason. There's been so much moving so Mrs Pelosi authorize an official impeachment inquiry by the committees and so forth. Let's look ahead a little bit. I think two weeks from tonight is the next and fourth Democratic presidential ventral debate. Now we knew impeachment would be subject even without Mrs Pelosi because Tom Steyer the wealthy businessman has been making that initialing that's his big tissue and he just got on the stage well now. They're all going to have to address it. Is that right I think so. I think it'll be a if everyone endorses impeachment. How can you you distinguish yourself from the rest of the crowd? It's going to be impeachment on what grounds on how quickly who else you want to impeach Bill Bar Mike Mike Pompeo is on the Ukraine call you know so I think I think that is going to dominate the debate and I think that the Democrats think that not without the reason that that's key to winning their primaries showing voters that they want to impeach the president. That's a question call because it may it may actually be good for the candidates each to endorse missile throated impeachment as many of them have and it may be necessary in other words that any candidate that that express some skepticism about how impeachments going going could not hope to win winner of Democratic primary but is that good for the rest of the party particularly on thinking of those thirty one Democrats sitting in districts carried by Donald Trump yeah. I don't think it's good for them at this point but we're still early in this process in will two weeks is a long time. We'll have to see what they dig up. I mean so far. We've had the memo of trump's call with Ukrainian president released. We've seen most of the whistleblower report and now the you know the congressional committees are going to start turning out looking for information. The whistle blower stuff was generally secondhand so they're going to be trying to confirm firm that trying to lock down details trying to see if there was some sort of harder quid pro quo on the the Ukrainian aid that the trump trump administration put on hold for a time and you know who knows what that will look like in two weeks time right and Jason the one of the things that also it does seem clear if they're going to discuss impeachment as I think they have to can they do that without addressing hunter Biden and Joe Biden and their own role in the Ukraine as recall hunter accepted a position on the board of Ukrainian gas company that was being investigated and Joe Biden while he was vice president got the guy fired doesn't mean he did anything wrong but there's clearly a conflict of interest. It's going to be very awkward for Joe Biden on that and stage. If either the moderators fellow candidates are pushing this so when asked Kamala Harris a reporter asked Kamala Harris that very question and she sort of tried to dance rounded and say I want to leave the Biden's out of this but certainly that's that's an awkward dance and I think that's why a lot of people are saying this is bad for Joe. Oh Biden right and it's good for everyone else. The question is it it may not be good for the person who benefits may not benefit by bringing it up but the question is will one of the Mi- more minor candidates not the big three bringing it up in hopes of advancing but I I would think that Joe Biden has to be very clear on this kyle like he can't be stammering around and look lost and so forth he has to be very clear and he has a to expect somewhere in one of his flanks someone to come out with a pretty tough attack. I think that's right and you know don't discount the idea that the moderators may bring this upright because this this this this discussion of this already circulating and I think you're absolutely right. I think he has to have a very strong and crisp answer to with you know some memorize lines that he can deploy to to undermine the narrative around this as much as he possibly can but as far as how it affects the race there are a lot of progressives who probably don't mind that that this is gonNA pull joe down to because they would prefer to see Elizabeth Warren so for for them. This is kind of a twofer in a you go you go after president trump while advancing your preferred nominee right and Jason. They don't have to say he didn't just they they have have to say look. The stakes are really great in this election. We wanted to feed Donald Trump. How can we have someone on stage with him? Who is also compromised by Ukraine? If we are impeaching donald trump over Ukraine yeah I mean maybe the best answer for Joe. Biden is to go on the offensive and say well look this up. Oh dump they just did on Elizabeth Warren and all the extent of her sort of entanglement with this native American issue. I you know I'm still the most electable right and you know the the Ukraine thing is so complicated. There's the prosecutor he was looking into this. They seem to be a lot of prosecutors and and you know and I think you know maybe if Joe does it right. Voters can just be confused. you know because there's so many dump on Rudy Giuliani right that kind of thing exactly and I mean you know and and even as the Republicans are talking about the way that the Democrats may have been talking to the Ukrainians in two thousand sixteen to get dirt on Donald Trump. I think voters might just be like what is going on in Ukraine who are all these all these people fright. What what's your take on that yeah? I think there's something to that and that's that's part of what makes the story for the president. I think so difficult is that it's very easy to understand. you have a a a a memo. It's not quite exactly a word for word transcript but a memo oh that's out where he's saying you know this would be great. I'm GonNa put you in touch with the Attorney General so I mean I agree that it's it's very complicated with with one hundred nine the story in a way that makes that less likely to stick and the reverse of that is that the the trump stories pretty easy to understand but again for Elizabeth Warren this is I mean she's struggling now kind of in a three way race with Bernie and and Joe Biden no one's been able to really knock Joe Biden out of that first place perch right so she she has to hope. I don't know which one you said it before that this story remains around look it's. It's not clear to me that that the they're gonNA find that Joe Biden did anything but it reminds me of the scene in the Godfather when the witnesses supposed to testify about the mob behavior to the Senate and just as he's supposed to testify Michael Corleone comes in and he brings with him the witnesses brother from Sicily doesn't speak English doesn't know where he is. He's just kind of happily. Message received the witness clammed up didn't didn't give them what they want so it's easy for the Ukraine company to say Joe you. We're not gonNA Hunter. You don't have to do anything just sit on the board that may be enough to discourage desks right so we may not find that there's any overt call to although Jason to be fair Joe Biden said he never discussed it all in any any way shape or form his son on this committee the article that came out before was it the New Yorker had hunter Biden thing his father did bring it up to once yeah and I mean who knows who knows what the truth there. Is You know if he were President and there was a special prosecutor. Who knows you know how many people they would? You know I mean th these kinds of things are just so hard to to untangle. I think overall I think overall Joe Biden just needs to say you know. Look my son you know was sitting on this board. I didn't have anything to do with it. Lots of people sit on boards and they get compensated waited for it and that's how it works and you know by the way you know this prosecutor prosecuted him because he wasn't being aggressive enough on corruption not that he and you know and I'm not sure which one people believe I'll say more broadly. I think you know this is something that happens. We saw it with the Clintons. We see it in others that I'm not sure that's a precedent that the Buzzer to invoke as a defense right but but just just more broadly I mean this is a problem that people see the political class lasts apparently profiting off of its connections to Washington you know the Democrats are accusing trump of doing this and his children of doing this and binds being accused of doing this and that's it's something that in this case it is interesting that Joe Biden took hunter with them on some of these trips where he made deals. I mean that that seems to me an odd thing to do with the Fed the president's frequently take investors along but when it's your son signing deals on issues that he has no particular competence in I'm. I'm rather surprised that he did it so anyway. Kyle what you're saying is the next the next debate the democratic debate. They'll probably really get into it and one of the questions will be will it be dominated by Donald trump or Joe Biden hunter by the discussion. You know where we're going to see the most fireworks clearly they're all going to become an out of the box against trump but but the question is again whether they take down Joe Biden as part of that and one of the things that's interesting as this plays a little bit too one one of Warren's Elizabeth Warren's campaign narratives which is anti-corruption. She's talking a lot about that on the campaign trail talking about we need we need bans on lobbying cheese. She she means specifically relations with big business right Paul political relations with big business and also with former members of Congress. Go go out and getting these lobbying jobs. That's not quite the same as one hundred Biden thing but it's close it's reparable. It's these people who have connections who are getting paid to sit on boards so she has has made that into one of the themes of her campaign so far and you know I would expect that she would definitely hit that hard in this context right so it's GonNa be a lively night. What are you looking forward to on that night there any question you would like to see well I well? I kind of think that The you and I and I think some other people saying that the impeachment squeeze is going to start to narrow the field that it's going to make voters want to start getting serious about getting just a few view. candidates and I do think it's going to knock out some people. I think Kamala Harris is on her last legs. I think you know Pete which is surprising because is on paper. She checks boxes right on paper. She checks a lot of boxes but when she speaks she seems to often fumble things and come across his sarcastic our cast Dick and and just not not pull off the lines as well as as she might so I'm looking for. I'm looking for you know the field to start to narrow. I'm of course looking for the the buying fireworks and I'm looking forward to some of the more the Democrats may be going on the record over some of the more extreme things that have happened in the last couple of weeks including with the with Brett cavenaugh and and that effort against him in Kyle warn the big question marks over this. We still don't have the inspector general's the report about the FIS warrants. We still don't have the material debt Donald Trump or claw classified into a lot of those scandals we still still don't have what the to prosecutors looking into this including one looking into Ukraine and its actions I mean a lot of that could change the debate between between now and then if this information is out there in fact some of us you brought up POMPEO and Bob Bartha Bill Bar some people people think that these attacks designed to discredit them in advance before these kinds of serious accusations come out and one thing to keep an eye on as as we move toward the debate is the the the last gasp of some of these campaigns are not gonna make the next debate if I'm remembering the polling threshold for this one is two percent and and the the Democratic National Committee has tight for the next two three percent so we have eleven or twelve candidates here now at some of them are not gonNa make the stage next time so they got to be thinking about what what what is the one thing that they can say that we'll get some social media attention and and stick around a little bit longer right so Jason. You said it looks. It looks in the in the house if you had to read it. It looks like there are the votes for impeachment right. Maybe maybe not for conviction in the Senate and at that to me looks very dubious. at this point isn't one of the messages of the Clinton impeachment that if you're going to go after the king you've got to kill the King could actually make trump's stronger if I mean it seems to me that Mrs Pelosi by her decision has also decided we are now the impeachment each been congress. We're putting all the other stuff on the side and we are going to base it all bet bet the farm on impeachment I think that one in perils barrels her own house members and would if they get an impeachment but like the Clinton effort it becomes a dead in the Senate yeah. I think that's quite possible. Oh I think it's too early to say for sure because I think some of the polling has actually been somewhat encouraging for Democrats the numbers among the public for impeachment. We're never very high. They were always a minority position now. Some polls show taking up with grain thing who knows how long that's GonNa last as the investigations go on and on and all these confusing things things make the public tired of it we don't know but I think Miss Pelosi had no choice. I mean I mean she held off from that for a long time and I frankly think I think that she might have been ousted by her member if she wouldn't have gone ahead when it I think you're probably right but that's also a different picture of Mrs Pelosi than the one we've been given when she was up for speakership was all about how she's the wise Old Lady of Washington and she the people there aren't any match for but she's kind of been boxed into this corner anyway. We'll leave it for their today. thank you kyle. Thank you Jason. I'm bill mcgurn

Liftoff 119: A Rovey McRoverface Situation

"Welcome to lift off from your friends at really. Fm brought to you this time by score. Space Liftoff is a fortnightly. Show when you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the latest news about space and related subjects. My name is Stephen Hackett. I'm joined is always by my co Jason. Snow are Stephen. Hello Jason Good. Be Back as always to talk about space so many things somebody spacecraft. Somebody would be spacecraft. That's pretty much the whole show this week. I think yeah pretty much pretty much. There's a lot going on in space. Unlock going on on earth of stuff that is supposed to go to space. Let's talk about one of those. So the Mars Twenty Twenty Rover. Then have a name for a long time. Nasa held this really wide reaching. I don't Wanna say competition but competition to name the rover and as of last week. It has a name so ours. Twenty twenty is now known as perseverance. I think is an excellent name. Yeah that's my my take on the name. That's good name. Fits in with the theme right. We've had spirit and opportunity and curiosity right so it fits in there. Yeah and those also had their names chosen by students. What is really cool so this competition was open to to students. You and I put. Our Name came from school age children and the winner. This time was a seventh grader. By the name of Alexander Mathur from Virginia. His name was with multiple rounds so they had like forty seven hundred volunteer judges teachers professional space enthusiasts. They're viewed the submissions that narrowed the pool down to one hundred and fifty five and then down to nine and in the public could vote on those. And after seven. Hundred seventy thousand votes The results were submitted to NASA for consideration. You don't AEROBIC AEROBIC MIC rover. Face situation exactly. You don't want that. They don't want that everyone's learned their lesson about letting the Internet name things and perseverance was chosen which I think is fantastic. It's good name. Fits with the theme and So we'll talk about hopefully everything works out. Perseverance scrambling around on the surface of Mars. And like we said. Alexander's seventh grade in Virginia and he became a space enthusiast through attending space camp in Huntsville. Which I've not been to space camp but I've been to where they hold it and it's awesome. He saw the Saturn five on display there. And there's this quote that NASA has of him saying this is a chance to help the agency that put humans on the moon will soon do it again. This Mars rover will help pave the way for human presence there. I want to try to help in any way that I could. Refusal of the challenge was not an option. That's awesome you. Want to tell us about. Voyager yeah so voyager two. We talked about actually two episodes ago. We talked about how voyager two had a little problem It had like a partial shutdown reset it and fix it. It's amazing remember keeping in mind that this is a space probe. It's been in space for forty three years. It's eleven billion miles from Earth but we still keep tabs on it. It's still teaching US things. Its primary mission long since complete a flying by planets in the solar system. But it's still teaching US things about the outer solar system and the edge of the sun's influence in interstellar space will keep it going. There's a there's a small team that works on it And it had this prob woman and a fixed it. But what's interesting is we're not going to be able if it comes up with other problems to fix them for a while because of how we communicate with space probes which is actually kind of an interesting thing to think about like. How do we communicate over these long distances and the answer is we have really big powerful antennas to send and receive from far out in space? It's called the deep space network. It's generally what's used to talk to. Space probes all over the place. They are the most powerful radio. Antennas in the world There are three locations which with multiple antennas at each location. Goldstone in California Canberra Australia and Madrid in Spain We've been using the deep space network. Ds N To communicate for fifty seven years it's used by NASA ESA and several other international agencies. I think that that new Mars probe that's coming from what is it the UAE. In if that's going to launch a twenty twenty it's also using this like all. A lot of international agencies at each station is three thirty four meter antennas and one Gargantuan seventy meter antenna and there's actually a pretty cool website you can go to the DSM now website NASA. And you've probably seen this if you've been on space twitter at all people linked to this all the time. It is a really cool site that actually shows you all of the dishes all of the antenna and who they're communicating with like in outer space. You see all four at each location. But if you go there now you'll discover. Is that the big dish in? Canberra is great out. It's faded away. And why is that? The answer is in Tennessee maintenance. And in fact it's more than that as we just mentioned. Mars twenty twenty three of the four Mars missions that are planning to launch. This summer are gonNA use the deep space network. Only China is using. Its own antenna to communicate. And what that means is they want to do some maintenance on the deep space network before that happens before those Mars missions reach Mars and they need to do maintenance on the seventy meter dish at Canberra but because of where voyager two is if you've ever wondered where Voyager Two is relative to Earth. The answer is it's Kinda down because only Canberra's dish can see it. So that's the direction. Voyager two is it's an area of space that's only visible from the Southern Hemisphere. Not from Madrid or Goldstone and so If they're GonNa Fix Canberra's twenty meter or seventy meter dish. They can't talk to voyager and that that for the next eleven months. We won't be able to send messages to voyager. Although the smaller antenna at camera can receive messages from Voyager. So what it means. Is that the voice. Your team has to keep cross. It's fingers a little bit. Hope that nothing really bad happens Hope IT keeps itself oriented properly with its antenna pointing back at the earth. I didn't actually know this. But Voyager to to this day has to fire thrusters more than a dozen times a day. Just little tiny bit just to make sure that it stays properly oriented and its onboard automation to handle the orientation process but it has to work correctly and if something bad happens something goes wrong. There's nothing the voyage your team can send to the spacecraft to fix it so they will just have to watch and wait and hope although can still get data back. So it's a probably nerve wracking Almost year for that voyager team although they can still receive messages but this is also something that we need to do in terms of maintenance because these antennas are what we used to talk to. All you know all of the spacecraft NASA and Esa in many other countries. And if you haven't been to that page before it is a lot of fun to watch as new craft go up there. You can actually go to that page and see you know. Where are we communicating with the you know the current Mars rover or one of the Mars? Orbiters or you know if there's something on the moon you know are are. Are we communicating with that or are we talking to something in the outer solar system all of that information is there like new horizons data? You'll find out where that's coming down if new horizons is talking so these face network needs to be updated. That sounds good but it is going to be this silent period for voyager two in terms of like it won't hear from us. I'm sure that is a little nerve racking for the voyager team but the spacecraft has behaved well for really long time and hopefully it continues to do so during this This downtime yeah. We'll cross our fingers for Voyager. It is forty three years in space. Pretty impressive. Pretty Amazing. Very impressive Let's switch gears. A little bit and talk about SPACEX. So there's a couple of stories here One you may have seen a couple of weeks ago pictures of a blown-up prototype in the Texas desert. Where Elon Musk and SPACEX or building pressure vessels in progress of the starship hardware that they're putting together they're doing all this prototyping and they had S In one which was this ruptured tank. It kind of went off and they think it was due to bad welds on the tank. And so this is all going on and Eric of our San Diego. Actually what a Texas interviewed at SPACEX and historian simply amazing. And you should definitely go read it. But it seems like spacex in this team in Texas are just burning the candle at both ends to get starship. Prototyping and construction underway historian opens with this. This crazy picture of musk holding a meeting at one o'clock in the morning to approve a bunch of hiring and then by the end of the next day they'd hire two hundred and fifty people from the local area. Yeah it's pretty wild right real wild. That was a story with Tesla years ago. Their so called production hell. Musk was just like sleeping on the line. Trying to figure out all of its automation and stuff and it seems to be that. He's repeating that here now with spacex but there's also the story an article about the S. and once that task bed that had exploded on the stand again. It's a pressurization tank so it's holding really cold liquid oxygen and has taken in this case and it had ruptured and they were meeting about that and some engineers sort of voice will. We were worried about it but we did the test anyways you know. We were told to keep moving forward and Musk said. Engineer didn't fill her to contact him directly by all accounts he seems to be on the premise. Basically nonstop right now. Yeah there in Texas trying to get this moving because he wants to build a production line for starship hopefully building one a week and then one every seventy two hours yep. Ll Musk time but clearly. The company is moving quickly in this development stage. Yeah Elon Musk. That's a lot of things but is space. X has proved to be quite impressive with what it's able to do even if that is not. I think there's a. There's a factor of this that is. I'm GonNa ask for everything and then you're going to give me a lot and that's what I want is a lot you know. He's he's overdoing it here. A little bit but I think it's interesting that you know in saying if you think there's a reason that this isn't working come talk to me that you know we don't want a a culture here where we we know there's something wrong and we go ahead anyway because that's a bad idea but he also is definitely you know trying to cultivate a culture of Not being failure averse right like he wants them to be smart. But it's okay of stuff breaks so If the first Starship blows apart. You know we WANNA know why and that might not have been good reason but they've also got another one coming and this is how you learn and all of those things so I think a fascinating right to see him. How do you? How do you get a project off the ground literally off the ground? Yeah IT'S PRETTY. It's pretty wild and it's a it's all kind of building on his whole thing of we want to get to Mars. We want to put people on Mars and he sees the starship needing a whole fleet of them to make that possible. And even though it's very early days I mean again. They're just testing pressure vessels. And they're coming up with new ways to wealth things. They're working on this machine to make the welding more or I guess. More consistent across multiple finishes like all the stuff got the the welding Zipper machine fam- inventing and all that it's it's cool. It's it's it's a great article it really is like so visited. Elon. Musk and Texas. And this is what it's like and it's it's it's very good. It's easy to look at this and think well musk's sort of out there on a limb with this and something to be said for that but like you said they have a proven track record at this point and I just keep thinking about this in conjunction or I guess in conjunction to you but in contrast to the SOS which has moved very slowly for a whole lot more money and how different the two programs couldn't be more different. I think for sure and that just really really is interesting to consider when you think that starship some point we'll be put into service and NASA will polly by flights on it. It's like well it's comes from a different place than Nassar's in hardware hip to while everyone's in the desert building rockets in the middle of the night. So what we're saying and blowing them up repeatedly but it's how they did. That's how the Falcon came to be right. They were on an island and tried to launch them and finally the last one worked and and here we are in fact in conjunction with the story. There's another story about SPACEX that Over the weekend it had a successful launch. An International Space Station resupply mission. It was its twentieth successful resupply mission and it was the fiftieth landing of the Falcon nine. Putsches I mean I remember the first one right now fifty and it's it's almost routine thing that people talk about with space space not routine and yet to make it look routine to have gone through fifty of them. It's still amazing. I still like to watch it every single time. But the fact that there are fifty first-stage landings that they've done crazy. It is crazy it was also the last launch of the Dragon. One capsule they'll be using dragon to moving forward which is very similar to the crew. Dragon Council for yeah commercial crew. It's based on the same same platform it comes with revised Parachute System. Twenty percent greater cargo capacity and can be reused up to five times where the dragon one to be reused up to three times again making that reusability case stronger and stronger and a big improvement is dragon to can dock automatically with the Space Station Dragon. One had to be snatched out of orbit with the robotic arm which meant the astronauts on the space station had to be involved in that and now the astronauts were still monitor the automated docking. But they're not responsible for birthing it to the station and then disconnecting it and setting it free so it is Improvement all the way around and I like these stories camp at the same time because it shows just how interesting company SPACEX says where on one hand they're celebrating this milestone and other hand like Elon. Musk is running around at one o'clock in the morning hiring a bunch of people from Texas. It's so interesting company. And they oh the road all the congratulations of the world for the milestone of course and it is really truly impressive. But they're still just so unusual when it comes to the industry they're in. I like the idea that the dragon too has. A has tesla autopilot. That's basically what's going on here but it is like you want automated CHR cargo. That's how it should work right is it should be out of it. You shouldn't have to grab it with an arm and then attach it so. Yeah modern platform based on the same stuff crew. Dragon. It's great. Yeah. Yeah spacex doing the doing the outlandish also doing the kind of almost boring and that says it all. I think about where they are right now. And it's using a docking adapter that SPACEX Self delivered to the space station right. They are. They are supporting things for their future endeavors as well. Yeah all right. Let's take a break and talk about our sponsor this week. This episode of lift-off is brought to you by squarespace. Make your next move squarespace.

Make your next website all right now. We have a meaty topic. Which is what is going on with Boeing and star liner and the fact of a TAD issues We talked about it. There was a big conference call about it. This is. This is Boeing's entry into commercial crew and as everybody knows it had a flight but it didn't go to the ISS in and then there turned out to be issues. We didn't know how many issues it turns out that there are a lot like a lot. Lot Stephen Tell me about what went wrong. Yeah a lot of things went wrong so this is unfolded since December flight. But you had the incorrect mission elapsed timer where the star liner capsule didn't know what time it was. You add software errors around the jettisoning of the service module before re entry. We spoke with the last time that there was concern that the service module could've struck the the capsule before injury that super bad and then of course there was the loss of space to ground communication during some of these really critical times during the mission and NASA and Boeing have worked together to to understand what happened and understand the causes for which in this sort of engineering the causes for what happened or actually maybe more important than what actually took place. You need to understand the failures kind of behind the failures and the big number here is a sixty one so the review teams analysis identified sixty one corrective and preventative actions to address the software issues. Being the missing laps timer and the issue with the service module jettison and and and burn to sixty one things to look at that with four main areas which work will be done so Boeing will review correct the code for the mission elapsed timer and the disposal burn for the service module they will strengthen its internal review process including better peer in control board reviews and improve it software process training. So if you've never worked in software peer and manager reviews are a big deal. Preview is where you're working with somebody side by side they're more or less on your level and you're reviewing each other's work and then it kind of goes to the next step up in the chain reviewed by manager this case control board where people with more expertise and a broader picture of what's happening. Look at your software and they should understand how. It's going to integrate with other pieces because I would guess that software engineers working on this there only very small part of it right and just a couple of you know desks over. Could be somebody working on something totally different. So you need this overarching understanding of how the pieces fit together. And that seems to be a real sore spot. And the way the star Leonard Software has been developed. So far a Boeing will increase the fidelity in the testing of its offer during all phases of flight. I think last week or the week before. We spoke about the end to end testing and improve that using more simulations more emulation and make that more similar to actual flight systems. So there seems to be have been some sort of breakdown in the way we're testing this and the way the code has developed on its own had sort of diverged and they want to put those back on the same path and say the testing is GonNa reflect what we're actually doing as opposed to what we thought we were going to do a year ago or two years ago if that makes sense and then we'll check its offer coding as hardware design changes are implemented so you have hardware software being developed at the same time it seems like maybe there was a breakdown of communication. Between those parts of Boeing. And they're gonNA work better to bring those people to the table together and make sure they understand. The left hand is at the right. Hand is doing if you will all good things. Sure Olga things. There's all sound reasonable to me. The communication issues seemed to have been hardware based and Boeing working now to change out ground components that should allow better communication with star liner. When it's in orbit intended radio. I couldn't find a lot of detail on exactly what that covers but they are working on it with additional testing going on later in March. But let's get to the number right like there was a number. I remember when this came out. I sent you and you're like Oh boy sixty-one corrective and preventative actions and forty nine gaps in software testing. Yeah this the star lender issues really seem to fall into sides of the same coin where you had issues with the software and the programs written and you had issues and testing. Didn't catch those those other problems. And so you know it's one thing to have bugs. Bugs happen but testing should catch them and it seems like those gaps and Testing. Or what allowed some of those other sixty one things to get through? What troubles me about? This is not that there are issues right like this is a new human spaceflight system. It is going to have issues. This is why we test this is why we try to have these overviews. This is why NASA works with Boeing on on the issues. That it's facing that's all acceptable. What bothers me is that there still seems to be a lack of clarity about whether they're going to do a test flight find one hundred things wrong and then say we don't need another test flight. That was the most surprising thing to me. Is that When unrolling these is still undecided. There'll be a second test flight that I was certainly by the time I got to the bottom of these articles. It would say and they're going to schedule a test flight for some time over the summer. I think the way I understand it. They're required to unless NASA waves that requirement. Yeah I mean the the client which is NASA can say. Nah Right I. I think the NASA is concerned tutoring. I think the answer is concerned. About the about the cost of Boeing and like wants to be the they want to be fair but at the same time I do worry that it's also that relationship is too cozy. And they're Doing Boeing favors. They need to not do but yes as as the client NASA seems to be able to say. This is not good enough to do another test. Redo your test which is going to cost money but it has to happen. It has to happen. And there's one hundred and forty million dollars in the NASA budget for another test. Flight I really hope to do it because you have this many issues. I don't think it's smart to have the next flight of this thing to have crew members on it. No and I totally agree and get what you're saying about the coziness. That something that I worry about two part of this is that NASA will co locate personnel embed NASA engineers in the Boeing soffer team to improve the verification tests. I don't know if that was already happening. Or not at an F. as an increase in the number of personnel who are in this role. Or it's a new position but if it's a new position that's SORTA scary to me like yes. Boeing's doing this yes. Nasa is the customer but this has got to be built like hand-in-hand. It seems like it hasn't been at least to the extent that it needs to be. And maybe it is that because NASA Boeing do so much together bones also building the remember a lot of other things that they sort of okay. We know what you guys can do. We trust you ought to do this. And then you know it went south and now they're trying to fix. It may be the case but I do have the sense. That NASA needs to ride Boeing. Harder when it comes to this sort of thing and it's one thing to talk about the Essa Lesson Budget and that sort of thing but when you're talking about gaps in testing those are really basic things that need to be addressed before you put human beings aboard spacecraft. Yep I agree completely Boeing. So we'll see where this goes. I expect this'll be quiet for a while. And then we'll hear at some point in the next couple of months what they're gonNA do about a second a second crew test. Well it's let's move on to something a little more. Fun Is Digging on the Moon. Let's dig and dig in the lunar soil with a new. It's a new space probe concept with a new acronym so today we are talking about Viper. Which is a rover designed to go to the moon and look for Water Ice Viper by the way Jason Jason Union? Tell us what it stands for. Have you read this yet? Volatile investigating polar exploration rover. So it's a little bit backward but it does actually make sense. Polar Exploration Rover that is investigating volatile. But if you say. Volatile investigating polar exploration rover. Should there be a hyphen in there. I don't know it's viper good. It's pretty good. I'll give this a thumbs up. I think that it It's literally every letter stands for every word that's in the name of that's important to you and that for me that that is the biggest way that these these names cheat. So I'm I'M GONNA give it a thumbs up to viper plus. It's kind of Cool Viper. Where Viper Moon Vipers an awesome name? Right like five right cool. It is scheduled to be on the lunar surface by December. Twenty twenty three. That is one year later than its initial date. But still aiming for this which would be before Artemis Lands on the Moon in twenty twenty four or whenever Artemis does that it will work around the Moon's south pole again in areas targeted for artists landings. Because it is believed to be resource rich with water ice which is a big deal. The plan is to combine vipers findings on the surface with orbital readings and begin to build a map of the location of water ice on the moon. Now this is could be at the bottom of craters. It could be under the soil but over time. They want to have an understanding of where water. Ice Is Is Available and easily available on the polls of the Moon Right. It could be on the South Pole. But if it's you know the bottom of five hundred foot crater that is a little bit tricky but they're hoping that it's much closer to the surface. And that's what vipers all about. It's going to roll around is about the size of a golf cart. It's going to have four instruments on board to for detecting and hopefully finding water ice than to for analyzing samples to look for it so the first instrument is the Neutron Spectrometer system or Miss. I guess an s the it's the NSS right. It's just it's just an acronym saying it like a snake. It's a snake. It's a viper. I'm GONNA go okay. I don't give that a thumbs up. Okay that's fine. That's terrible so it will work to detect water below the surface and guide vipers team aware to dig. And this is where Vipers sort of party piece comes in. They one meter drill that it can put on the surface and and core into the lunar surface. This is called. Tried it new you and tell us what this stands for because I wanNA see your head explode the regular lith- ice drill for exploring new terrain. You got quiet there for a second. Did you skip some words? I can't Yeah by downplay. The words that aren't actually in it because then it would be called trae. Defend has not as good. And that's not as good as trident. So yes the regular and ice drill for exploring new terrain I can feel like a solid like thumb. Seventy percent up because again it's cool. It's like you're there's a snake on the moon and it's digging with a trident great. How could you Davey upset about this? And so like I said it will core soil samples to three feet below the surface and then it will analyze them on board to determine the composition and concentration of various resources but again water isis. The main thing. They're after here. These will be put through a couple of tools. One is called 'em Solo which is mass spectrometer observing lunar operations not too bad and the nervous nervous near infrared so the doubling up their volatile spectrometer system. Yeah Okay it's I mean it's it's not spelling an actual word and then you pronounce where it's all go with it. Nervous nervous in people are afraid of snakes. It all ties together and makes you nervous at all on the theme yes. This is a big deal. Finding water ice on the moon would be huge in terms of future missions. Not only having water available but turning the elements within water the hydrogen and the oxygen into all sorts of things. You can use it for power you can use it for fuel would be a big deal and viper is another step down that road. It will collect up to one hundred days worth of data. That data will be overlaid what we know like. I said from orbital measurements and try to piece together. Try to understand where this water is may be. The Viper Rover will be delivered as part of Nasr's commercial lunar payload services or clips and as of last month it asked NASA ask commercial partners to start bidding on launching to the moon by twenty twenty three. So so. Here's here's this is the. This is the catch right like this is. We're going to build this rover Who WANTS TO DELIVER IT? And that's the that's the other part of that says getting getting stuff down onto the surface of the moon like this and the commercial partners are going to bid on it right. You know. Maybe we'll get this by twenty twenty three a A lunar little lunar prospector. If you but don't call it that because that was a different thing that they cancelled yeah here. Is something very similar? Yeah the Viper killed. The prospector got gin. It works man. They're on top of IT IS I. I think it's because the prosper didn't look in his boot and there's a viper in their whole story to be told a story told acronyms. Yeah everyone's nervous about the ending anyways paper. We did want to let people know. Apollo Thirteen episode is coming up month but thirteen minutes to the moon the BBC podcast where they covered apollo eleven and the bay really focusing on the landing quits on. The Moon is back with season two or they are covering apollo thirteen. And I'm about halfway through episode one and so far it's really enjoyable. They've got Jim Lovell on it for Hayes on it and I think it's going to be a really enjoyable show that it a great job season once if you're itching for Apollo thirteen stuff You can go in and get started with that. I think you'll really enjoy it. Yeah talking about great podcasting. That does it Jason. Yeah all right. Well that wraps up this episode of lift-off I guess but you know we'll be back in a fortnight. It's fine we will. We'll be back and until then you've you wanna find more about the stories. We spoke about the website relay dot. Fm SUSS LIFTOFFS US one.

"Oh my God let's get down to business to do show. Did they sound US daughters when they ass for bose? I caught myself they're not lying to. Do The h word. So screw it. Almost kind of expected myself. Daylight Making A. Spoof of that song to say welcome watch the. Review the Mulago Mac like I'm drunk or we're going to review. Real the MU line. Today is a going cody. Pretty good. Pretty good. How are you Jason Good except that we don't have just in here because he decide you know Jerkin and get away from us for a week. Now dressing, he oughta go scheduled flight is something. So it was just MEA nude is to to browse before the Bro. The was there was that that doesn't make any sense I'm avoiding using that word the best of my abilities they don't want to catch Ashtec Avalon woman I record with so I don't have that point where a make speeds. The UN is chiefs pine have resigned from after saying the one word and making people upset so I do. Apologize for everything today to serve, and that will be the end of punch press at now. Then definitely I mean I'm not even somebody would like to say the word anyway because I am for women empowerment out saying that you know I may this or anything but you know I think women should be treated equally and I have many female friends that I definitely love and respect, and actually on two of the three shows I do I have females as my co-host mean we got the Righty Fine Lauren. Snyder. Also with the Gaming Tadpole I've been doing more with be who is one of my many co hosts a swap their shoe wants to be Get a Mac and being insistent that I mean in case there's a weekend she doesn't want to be on the showers. She's got something going on I, always have backup over other people to join. But this really awesome to be doing that with her because she has such a goofball and I love her so much in love. Cracking jokes, they're not at. So for today. Yes I said malign add many weird interpretations of trying to tell you what during year. But since Justin was going new C. Tenant, he's going to risk his life to see Now he was gonna go to the drive in movie through because he's next one unfortunately he's not here Sir tenant will not beyond the play instead we do have a couple of new. Movie News. So I don't know if you know about this but the director of Dr, sleep? I think his name is Mike Flanagan. He wants to direct a adaptation of Stephen King's the dark tower. So that's at least as wishes not confirmed it's going to happen. I think another thing you've known about the news is that Robert Patterson and Dwayne the Rock Johnson, they have been tested positive for covid nineteen facts about. Had production over this, which brings the question is it really safe to even do an in any of this this live action filmmaking if even when people get, the is a testing kits and they get snuffed testing gets they have all these procedures in place and for some reason, they still get tested positive. So that's something that will probably this try to discuss the that's. What we on the show in place Nathan Eighty now I mentioned I was jokingly talking about being canceled but someone was actually trying to cancel me. I've actually for real and I. I'll tell you why. So next week we'll be talking about cuties one to yes year like, is it one of those jerks again? Yes. Yes. So what happened was I post in my. Little, audio were segment. The show we talked about our response to the cuties controversy and premature week later, someone or one of the moderators that group finally paid family notice the post that I may or they put on there. All they do is just shared the Audio Betta. And they looked at the title in defense of cuties and they're like, oh. No you take your pedophile but somewhere else we don't support pedophile Thalia in here are no no. I. Know He loved pedophile could you please listen to the Audio Ben? Like I won't have to listen to the I? Bet I can tell that you support pedophilia just from reading that title an Honest. I don't WanNa waste my time listening to reasons why I should support pedophilia pedophilia is wrong no. I, I know this is. You probably want to say something. I just feel like people are blowing this whole thing out of proportion based on a tidal and the marketing that they've chose to use for this movie it's a movie we haven't even seen it yet. So we don't know what it's a sports or dozen support and yes, pedophilia is monstrous and wrong, and if you're that passionate about getting rid of it, then go after the real issues that are affecting and harming children in our world than a movie that's on Netflix that no one senior. Well, that's the thing is we do have people who've seen it. And they came out with their reviews, praising it for being against pedophilia of for I. Think it was even a couple of people saw early screenings in their late. No, this is not the movie thing. This is actually telling you to do something about pedophilia and not only that it's all about you know being against that it's a sweet story about these two four girls having friendship and everything, and I even looked at the trailer and I'm like, no, this doesn't make me want to raise kids I. Mean I don't even have that feeling anyway, but still look. I mean the whole argument that I keep getting that if you watch the movie and you're a pedophile and I even have someone who is a great friend of mine just commoners like when I said that are okay. You don't have to listen to the audio bit but. I don't support pedophilia and one of my friends I disagreed chase I'm a dad and I have a daughter and a I don't want any association with Pedophilia. You know if you watch this film than you're pretty much supporting a Netflix's needs to take down and say they're against feel am I do just it's it's the audio bit about defense accuses I don't think it's not long I think it's like twelve minutes maybe. I explain what? his late? No, this is Ron. Any Association needs to go and to me looking at this it's like okay. So what's the difference between saying? Any associated with pedophilia needs to go I. DON'T WANNA. Hear it. NETFLIX's needs to take it down and say something like the hate you give, which is a movie about racism like okay. So we can say black lives matter. I, we need a show, these movies that are talking about these issues going on then when it comes to kids like, no, no, no no no go away. Don't don't talk about this, but we don't then while this is going to keep happening I mean that's why human trafficking and all these other issues in kids all of these organizations like the boy scouts and the Catholic Church in many other things that have employed is under the rug or what? Enslaved. Okay. So if we're just going to say I don't WanNa hear it I want association than how do we even deal with this? The thing is I think that if you're going to make a message and it's not trying to be exploited I, mean that's another thing if you have a message to tell than in even if it's the serious message, you should be given that privilege to be honest. There are movies already out there talking about bounce. Or issues against underage kids I mean never really sometimes always that's a movie that's already out. That's been praised in loved. The little twist happens in that film is Kinda. Well, let's say if all you people are like save the children, really care about that. You're you're against all these movies and where were you when that came out and that's where I have no sympathy for people protesting against this movie because me you're choosing to be just ignorant Abou-. Real world issues that GonNa Ame, you don't have to deal with them. If you were like you on I don't want to deal. You don't have to watch this movie but the tell someone else there a pedophile if the disappointing this movie, I don't see the connection here. That's like saying, okay, you play violent video games you're going to be violent, and if you like saying I love silence of the lamb the movie so I must be a serial killer. Joker. So I'm GonNa go remember that when jokers to cause mass shootings a the most dangerous film out there now that's cuties. So C word the cycle is discount repeating itself year and your worker review the movie we're going to be fair if it if it, it goes to a point where it's actually supporting pedophilia we're gonNA definitely a donut and say you're at Netflix, take this down but. Really, nine times out of ten the movies that get the most backlash are films that don't really warrant the amount of controversy that they've again, where is the outrage for the movie three, hundred, sixty, five days, which is basically a rape and sexual assault in Stockholm Syndrome movie I get all pro that you're instead number one for a full month and now we Guy Sequel Newark. So it's light. People putting them the Hashtag Save the children in laid man I'm an appearance. So I and I'm not saying to my friend I think the case of my friend who is he wasn't like completely on chase. You're a pedophile He also said, hey, you chase can say what he wants to say, I, don't hear anything about pedophilia and there was a army like, yeah, you're A. Parent I get that but you do need to be wary of these issues. There is that point where you're gonNA have to your kid is going to grow older kid is not going to be a kid anymore and you have to have these conversations of them especially if they are female and I think with him, you was you as a sold on view amuses convinced cut I mean, there are people I know who were convinced that you gotta joker than you would get a shot up so I mean. Veer into cells way to easily and I think it's just people need to be honest with things instead of trying to scare people into because it will get the most attention but you're the bing I'm going I predict this is going to be number one on. All that's dark, and this is GonNa Cutie is going to be number one. But. We're definitely going to be talking about that and just in better get his but back. I don't think he's going to be on a plane for a whole week. So wait what's the of plane doesn't that like? I mean, Kobe Coburn's very bad on airlines. Yeah. Heard. I've heard given take of like how they handle things like how they separate people in everything. But you know people are living their lives doing what they gotta do and I understand if you've got work or you to. But there are some people that are still just casually going about their days like it is nothing and you just reported Robert Patterson and Dwayne Johnson I think actually all of Wayne Johnson's family as. Good and I think both on Sale Maine and we're GONNA go into that. That's another thing just in works as an actor so. That you could I mean even with all these procedures, you can still get Kovin. Do you think it's even possible to keep going with these live action shoots we just needed shut them down I mean honestly in my opinion, they probably should not be doing live action filming. Are They GonNa do that? No because they need to make money and they WANNA keep the industry alive. In I don't know what the CDC would say about this. But in my personal opinion, it's probably not safe enough. I feel like the only thing that you could do right now is probably doing voice acting animation. Yes. That's the one industry that has actually still taken off like we're all other parts are struggling even Cyber Security surprisingly by animation Dad's been working out quite a bit. I mean, there are a lot of animation studios they've been very flexible about working from home. The transition has caused maybe some productions to be delayed but for the most part they're been, they've been able to still made show's happening games are still releasing by summoned the bigger projects they've gone delayed from covered, but for the most part things that have been able to come out. Smoothly I mean, yeah I am Asian I think is just the future right now I mean can't be held with the films that are in the middle production I mean I get they wanNA finish it up because they ensure it would cost some money for them. Especially, if they have I mean we don't know this'll be over any year the actors age or I don't know what the. Whole deal is with all that. So yeah, I'm I'm how I mean for the most I'm hoping the rack and his family they are have a safer cover sorta survivor passing we always joke and say, Oh, well, they got a lot of money so they'll be fine. Don't know. Well, I mean the lead singer of fountains of Wayne died of Corona, a couple of other celebrities I. Mean they weren't widely known or a list celebrities, but we've had people in the industry die of Cova already. So I mean never say never but I mean bad I had a feeling that the rack and Robert Pass at least they've been very watchful and early June. What they can I know that I saw some instagram videos were there Iraq was in the middle of producing something? And he even told his old staff and crew. It was the beginning of the Pindad Retail Zal staff and crew. Hey, you go home will see what we can figure out. So I bet he's I mean he's on top of this and I am having hope the he'll get out of that cozy seems like a very genuine guy. He really enjoys his fans he really enjoys. Different Cultures. So I mean I'm hoping the same with router pass and it's very unfortunate friend because he gets be Batman he has to deal with this, which is really sad because I saw the trailer of the Batman and I'm really looking forward to that especially his performance of it but you know safety is I I don't think anything is worth getting covert over and will say the Same thing for marvel production. I have I think all model productions have not been. Filmed, they should be. They should not keep going I don't really think anybody should keep going unless they know for sure that they could film in live action and keep everybody safe. We don't know how these how they got code for all I. Know They might have been fine on production, but then they went home and may remain they went out somewhere and then just caught the infection. So I, mean for all, we know filming a live action to save by insists that it is a really tough thing to be an and I'm hoping things will work out because you know you don't WanNa see me we think about big corporations all they got a lot of money, but there are so many production company are. People who work in lighting and photography and doing all these other other staff members of the crew members I mean, I? Don't WANNA see them lose all their jobs and that be able to afford anything. We're just hard 'cause a lot of businesses outside of animation are not doing well. So it's something developing that will add to see, right? Yeah I'm I'm kind of I I. Don't want to say, Hey, cancel all live action productions currently happening but I will say that those that are should be with extreme caution in our nine thing that. Okay. Well, if they we check the temperature and showed us that they're good. Then we're good to go now there should be more procedures gone on. Comes of this. You have anything else you WANNA say about this I mean I understand like you said those that are like in the middle of production I can understand why they're trying to finish because you know it does cost more money to stop production and restart it back up. But yeah, like some of these higher profile films that have just been announced but haven't really started production yet I think those should wait. It's always an issue of people needing to work and not making the money and you know people not our government not doing what they should while we're in the middle of this because yeah, they suffer the most yeah. We always say Oh to hell with these big billion dollar corporations but yeah, all the lighting the sound. The assistance, the caterer's the chauffeur's, I mean there is a lot of people that are employed. bouncers. Yeah there's there's a lot of people that are employed to production of a film that rely on constant work to pay their bills. So guy on the side of. A tough time but I'm glad that the Batman has halted production. I mean not just because the main character is sick but you know that's the smart thing to do and I agree that trailer made me more excited to see the movie. That is great thing I mean if one of your cast members even no matter how big or small someone who's working on this film catches covered. You've got an auditing and contain that thing. So the something the best which in good while to. Goes Ethic. The worst thing to happen right now is the seed to more people who as broad good joy to others best even go and we especially at a young age I mean not too long ago. We had a Chavan Bozeman dice I mean, let let's just kind of wish the best for yeah. What's what's the best those tier and I think as long as you're safe than there's a high chance, we're GONNA make it but I mean again, we can get be overly confident. So yeah, that's all I wanNA say bow regarding that a get on. Did all the coat things out of the way. Well, Kinda because now we get into new line which was supposed to release way back in the end of March until covered happen was delayed delayed, and then finally hits home video for thirty dollars, which was a big debate over that, and my whole thing was well as much as that seen St.. Just keep in mind that this was a very expensive movie. The budget of this is two, hundred, million plus advertising. It does me even aw they got a lot of money. They've also been losing money lots of. COMPANIES APP so can't keep delaying these films and this has got to come out eventually. So it today it released on Disney boss at least in the US and then a week later, it will release internationally theaters and theaters. I don't know about the United States as at this time, but right now it's only on dusty plus and this remake for the longest time also cut he because, hey, you don't have moved shoe or those musical number Xilai what's thinks that just don't get with these nut was not the remix of Disney decided to do them but the people complain about these remakes wanting them to be the exact same thing but then getting disappointed be like are you I didn't do it as well as those other people I might for crying out loud and I totally get why you know friends of mine are like screw Milan I'm waiting for that bill and Ted Three because Bilton three just gave you the same thing that you got from Bill said one this movie is not giving you the same thing because while head of those two things that I've mentioned but also not I wouldn't say dark tone but at least a less goofy tone than the animated goes this really much emmy it's pre Marley were meme that you got on your story is still similar in a way you got Moulin who's The actress who plays this movie I'm? Not. Sure. But all I know is it's her first English speaking role. Yeah. Yes. Some of these actors neck actually some are Philippine Philippines or Filipinos by Saint Philippines like the A beans. We have some well known recognizable lack. Yeah, we do which. People really want get into it. There was controversy over the lead actress saying, Hey, the Hong Kong police, they're not so bad early there is something about them saying that or her saying that the police force they're not really all that bad and. People are saying, yeah because she said that we got cancelled this movie I don't see and I'm Mike. Okay. Yes. She plays the lead character, but she did not make the entire movie. She don't write the scripts she didn't. Do. Any of the other things that were going on she just acted and I just don't feel that's fair. Do just say I'm not gonNA. I'm not GonNa Watch this movie because of this person's comments but. Yeah so that that was one thing those happening, but she wants to honor her family, the Milan and go thing is that while A woman cannot fight or else she's a witch woman cannot do anything cook and be a wife to selective husbands and just be what you're supposed to be and Muan she ever since she was little, she is all about the acrobatic. Stunts that she can do. She's gala town's going on I. Think she's a woman so she's not supposed to I and then the big war happened between the imperial or the empire and these. Group abandons led by a let me get the It's Jason Scott Lee's the young bad guy, and of course, the one playing the line is Louie yards. So adjacent Scotland being borey Khan and boy con gang revenge because the emperor kill recons fathers or the whole revenge thing. But anyway, Sabari Khan's army is coming attack the empire takeover so they need a select. Different men from each of the households do come join the army in the fight back. Towards our Malawi's father cannot because his old he's weak he's Guide A. Leg is injured. So he's he's crippled. Without permission decides to run away into the army disguising herself as a man, and if you I mean, you know a little bit about Milan story you know kind of that she tries to she tries to disguise himself as a man ball being the best out of her league, and then eventually she gets caught. But there are some different things that happen here and what I want to meet. We say for those related man, I won new wind the musical number of say, let's get down to business defeat the hines. Let's do make a man of you and all that I saw if they were to do all that, would you like the movie I would say now because you'd be like You didn't do like their ridgeline people. So what would be the point of having all those things at the original movie done when Mu Lan the story of Milan has even owned by Disney this is an old folklore tale from. Which people tend to forget that because does the owns everything I guess. So with this Milan, not NATTA catering to those elements I have to say with the Phoenix replacing. It actually made things better and this might upset people who are fans of the character Mushir Musha was in this movie he would take over and this would not be Mulan Story. You were just have as Sassy black sterner type just. Rather not voiced by Eddie Murphy, just making a bunch of doing some comedy routines just looking cute. So we can sell some. red dragon plus she's and the Phoenix just shuts up and leads Milan speak for herself which I appreciate that this is Milan story not bushy story. Is. What? I'm just it's just funny. I'm agreeing with you what you're saying, but it is funny lie is. Showed up move shoe Jesus stopped. Shucking and jiving and all that it especially when in Muan to the Mulan to they. We should just took over. So that's where I'm like we don't need Mushir anymore as much as people really love. Does Had An aesthetic feels for Mushir unlike now Mutlu issues gotta go you. As much as people like Musha Musha was trying to cash and non craze that rubber. What my what why day almost a Robert Downey junior now? The Voice of Genie Rijo on Oh. Yeah. It was the thing Disney did after the success of Aladdin and casting Robin Williams. Was Robert Downey Junior? No. Like okay. We've gotta get a comedian to come in and be the sidekick to our protagonists that are animated films. Yeah that happens way Depp and so much and honestly half of. Psychic characters after Aladdin to me they don't really work. No say for example like. Wine can you got to MOAN IMPROVE NBA? That's an exception. What's another one I think? That's it. I mean they had they had pocahontas cute a raccoon and everything. I don't think raccoon though talk it is made noises your made noises looked all cute and destroyed to do bunch of ask physical gags. But yeah. I I was just not on board with that especially when they're trying to make a word movie that would be so out of place now you could make musical numbers work at award moving. But again, the the way this movie was playing itself out I thought. The mood to remove those things kind of worked in its favor because it was not sidelined by. Suddenly. Malign or one of the soldiers getting breaking Ed's musical number. Those white God was in replace those musical numbers with some interesting things about approach they have to female empowerment, which was a big message to Babylon because you know she she's defying odds of being who. She was supposed to be are being moved. She wasn't supposed to be but in this where you got, for example, a boycotts got a psychic and the side kick is basically a which. Could. Do some powers who is played by Suzanne Obtain Donnelley's Blaine. Gone late August. Sorry, I'm sure what what my different? Sorry. Sorry. Well, she had a line of makeup that I discovered Silvano I. Am Not Racist. They do look different. What am I doing are gay as I'm GonNa. Are Your your this is the part cancel canceled ponds FRESCA's. He can't tell the difference between two agent no, no no that wasn't that one. Elegant you just jiggling down. UNTIL THREE TO AKWESASNE No Harvest scrolling down. Well you know talking about but anyway, she was someone who had felt just light Milan where she was outcast because being female they win allow her to be who she wanted to be in this people treated her like crap is it is the side that she could fights hero and narrow between those two I thought was great and also what they did with who's the gutter maligns love interests in the story who in this? Z. I actually. I'm not sure what his name is. Okay. Well, anyway no command sorry commander or my done. It was Chen. I think that's him. Yeah. Because the commander is a Donnie end because I was just saying there was a there is a commander in this but then also they won new plays the love interest in the original one. Now I had a friend who's like man I don't like the hell different. They are how they made changes to the relationship between. Malign and Chen. I actually liked the changes because I think the thought was Oh, you're now it's it's a whole darken No, it's not really that Chen. He just wants to experience a love is like so when they're not trading everything, he does comes to her like, Hey, I'm thinking because I I wanna know if this girl really likes me in. The gun cut out for us and I think that's Kinda sweet. The way is tackled love and female Paran into Senate very sincere way. Honestly, I would have liked to see more scenes with the between these characters but why does have? Is still great with all those action scenes happen those action scenes. They are some big spectacle moments done with premature practical effects. People walking on walls. You're doing all these sort of a Samrai's ends. And the action is so much fun to watch, and there's still plenty of action going on. Now, not all that makes sense because you do have to ask the question. Okay. Powered those. Okay. Out in some of these characters have made. These and don't explain that as. You dislike well, okay. We'll just have to roll that. The other thing is that yeah, the main villain he's got a very straightforward motivation but I think we're really carries this whole thing is again move wine and. Mulanje relationship with others, Indiana's there are parts of the site think even better than the original on and be an sets the fact that they are able to just remove the signs and replace it with moments of character moments them very high energetic action. Now, there are moments of. You know this is a Disney movie. They gotta have some goofs and there are a couple of scenes were unlike, okay. This level to Wacky for what's going on here Ed's early on with the the whole thing with the spider house like we didn't need that. But I to be honest even after paying thirty dollars I quite liked this movie be alive. What about you? I'm a little I'm a little conflicted on how I feel about this movie because there's a lot of really good stuff in hair. As you mentioned the fight scenes are incredible everyone of them. It's Topnotch This movie looks absolutely gorgeous. It's shot incredibly well, and I love the score I. Yeah. There's no musical numbers, but they have some throwbacks to the songs within the score. That's really nice. And Yeah I feel like they definitely made Moulana definitely more empowered independent character in this film and yeah. If they had included a moo Shu character, it would have been a way out of place in this film. And I liked that even though there's a hint at a love interest, it's not like really part of the story. This is still more. Mulanje. Story. What does kind disappoint me is that I feel like this movie is just going through the motions as far as the plot and a lot of the acting is just so so it's an I. Don't know it could be just the script and it could be Disney kind of came in and because it feels like it's made by committee for the malls part but. I really enjoy some strong moments in here. Especially, the actor who plays Milan's dad for what little he has onscreen. He is doing really well and I like his kind of two big scenes in the film like the one where he Volunteers to fight in there like do you have a son and he's like, no, I'm blessed with two daughters. and. Then in new the end of the film where he's like, no, I have to I should be forgive you should be forgiving me you know and that's a really touching moment to. So I'm kinda somewhere between a high decent in Logan good because there's like technically everything is in this movie is good. It's good I just found myself Kinda, like been here done that but I applaud all the differences that they did. They didn't try to make a shot by shot remake of Muan, like they have done in the past with their other animated remakes. So. There's a lot to applaud. Here's just for some reason. I wasn't as emotionally invested in this film as the animated film but I'm like you I. Think there are some things that are better well okay. I when it comes to like yeah. The plight of Saving the day from a specific villain. Yeah. I mean we've seen that before so much especially Disney it's a very. It's a it's a formula that we seem in in a live action movies to me was in meiring this more much as while I mean yeah. The character interactions I don't think the dialog is really that bad in fact. I did like ally the performances at I think there are some cheesy moments. There are some parts where it was over the top and we're. The APP to be reminded Disney owns us. So they're gonNA try to do. They're going to throw in something for the kids even though this is Peter Tan. But even in that I've seen worse from the star wars movies as far as lake things out as catering towards a committee even worse from the live action movies like I don't think this was made by a committee at all. I. Thought this was made by someone who really wanted to tell their own state. Side of this No this traditional tail or a bomb. their fogler is the story that we've got. Because it they'll thing is they don't spend so much on merchandising like they don't have those characters boy like, okay. That is meant to sell toys that is meant for action figures. This is meant to spinoff endear huge franchise. Now, they might do a sequel to this they do I would actually be okay with that. But you for me for it to be a committee I feel like. It would. To me would feel more like a product in this fell laid. Someone's actual vision. and then fell in a way word like, okay. This is your vision but do these things. Additionally. And Yeah I think there are some parts are like out. This is kind of weak but there was never a point where I was a slave role is I was going like, oh my gosh or why do I why am I like this? Probably the spider seem but that scene is very short too. Yes. I think that's the only one that's like like I rolling worthy. I don't think anything in this movies bad just for whatever reason I just felt like it was just through the motions of the plot and I know it's Remagen ask the basically tell the same story and they did do a lot to make it different I. Just I don't know I. Just wasn't completely invested with what I was watching for some reason. Will. Ever, agree to disagree I. I was definitely invested in fact, I was like, go Mulan Kick Their Butts. Yet you tell girl you got him. Well, he was even just that like. Their parts that I didn't. See in the original on a gun just I don't bend the original movie had those moments were early not the regional nights ninety eight had those moments were you had just characters the tried to? discuss their feelings on these things which. It is I mean I think in the original wine you had a last slapstick humor, the three, those three side. Kit Guys. Then it was Kinda mentioned. But the. The thing that I really appreciate is that the removal of all these goofball side characters so we can put a little bit more focused on. The whole the whole message that even the original film had, and that's why I say parts of his better. Yeah, I mean. I think original wine is more ones ago and it's definitely GONNA be meal more appealing towards kids. I'm one of those people were Moulana. Favorite out of the nineties to the animated films like I go back it or watch it I do enjoy it. I enjoy quite a bit but there are things about the movie that I think don't hold up as much and a lot of it is movie character. So. Yeah I would give A. You know they're they're things that I don't think work but for the most part yeah, I would give it a a solid. Good. And I would say regarding whether or not it's worth three dollars that's going to depend. You're Outta jog your tigon money then yeah. You could wait for this I'M A to be free in December fourth that It would still be with the way. Now you're so many who pay for trolls world tour or bill and Ted Three, and all that you should pay for this for an apology. This I think this move better than all pretty much. To me, this is the best rate are making tax agree redone good book on a test the next week don't mind the date. I don't know what just happened but anyway. I yeah. I don't know I don't more satisfied with this than I did with all the other movies I paid like twenty dollars to rent for. Not Saying. Mrs Perfect or anything, but it's the second best live action remake. I'd say that I've seen the first being of course, jungle book which I would talk to people who hate live action remakes so badly, but they never saw jungle book and I'm like, why don't you see Juggle Bug 'cause you can't make live action remits work and I think this one works quite a bit. So yeah I I really liked this movie in neon I wouldn't I wouldn't kind of a removed the original nineteen ninety eight animated movie really. I don't really want I. Don't consider this on the even though it follows some the same beats I don't really consider this lake. Let's it. It's very identical. No. This is a different take on a familiar story one that I very much appreciate. So yeah, I guess I enjoyed a lot more than you but yeah, I don't I don't think it's flawless but. Ago Dog good movie to watch them. I'm not saying it's bad ige's for me. Personally I just couldn't get fully into it I completely admire the craftsmanship in what they're going for, and then his movies just for me. It was just I just felt like Milan and not completely it's even though it is its own movie I just wasn't invested as much as I should have been served all. I'm saying but I admire what they did here and yeah I think it's wo-. You could wait you don't have to pay thirty dollars a see that it's right now I will say I understand why they're charging. That much and I would say if you have a family and you have children that the thirty bucks is not really that a better price because you'd you'd spend more than taking your family to the movies to see it and I am I'm applauding Disney for releasing it for people to see instead of saying, no, it has to be seen in the cinema because this movie this movie looks very cinematic. So I could see why people would want to see it in the cinema, but I liked that Disney's like, no, we're GONNA put Disney plus so that everyone can see it. You got to new murals. No they don't care about me. So. Yeah, that's the thing I looked at the sunlight. All the things that I rented paid twenty dollars for this. The one movie I might know this this should be seen on a big screen because of just the scale and scope of everything but. Mean it's also just kind of a nice throwback to. Classic Chinese Action Films Back, when they had notably off. Yeah. So. Good. So that's we had to say last thing we'll get to on the show is that recently the Director of Dr? Sleep Mike. Flanagan, he said that I want to direct the dark tower in new version of Dr Tower and I saw that I'm like. You want go for it. Dude go for it. Because I was one the few people who saw Dr Sleep and I absolutely enjoyed the heck out of it see. Doctor Sleep. I didn't get to see it in theaters but I did rent. It has a last semester. I did a project where I talked about whether you should see. Dr Sleep. If, you're a fan of the shining and yeah I totally adored doctor sleep I thought it was a very nice. Mending, of Stephen, King's work and acknowledging Stanley Kubrick's film of the original and he's done quite a few king adapt patients that have done very well he's very good at the making these movies and have. Anyone can tackle it and try to adapt it successfully whether he does it as a film or as a series, which I feel like that's more where it probably should be such as expansive as this set of books are. But Yeah I think he might be the right man for the job and more power to them. So one could actually get this adapted and made because they've tried for decades I mean I know there's a movie that came out a couple of years ago with Egypt Silva. Matthew mcconaughey I haven't Seen An. Awful scene. It was not good. No, it was not. And you know. My friends. saw they all liked it is there like a it's like a it's like a more of the rings. I I don't I don't know I want. To learn the rings. Unless you WANNA compared unbearably than shared. It's Yeah it was. It was not good. I mean Egypt Selbe. He's a great actor and so Matthew mcconnahey can be great actor but this made a full add both of them and it was like trying to. Brussels thing out the window. Emmy. It was an hour to half which was fine. But it was to the point where they rushed so many things about the movie. They rushed a character development they rushed. You know the of everything. Edges felt like something they were trying to get out the door and. Say Hey we made it. which is a total shame because they could have made been great with especially. In the fact, they changed the main protagonist to being black. Originally, he was white I'm not against that at all. But the problem is the script was so. It was so tired. I was so bored and that's where even Matthew mcconaughey Matthew mcconaughey is in a great movie he's shown all his His wonderful towns as an actor. But in movies where he's not were the film isn't great. Isn't good. He is so boring to watch on screen he just Kinda goes. Math McConnell hey, and I think. I think you are A. Listen to me 'cause I got something to say. And that was the whole thing when I was watching interstellar was like, oh, my gosh. Village sleep through but part of that was through Matthew mcconnahey because he was so monitoring in that movie. I acting exactly as he does in every single film. When he's not giving direction he's. Looking very spaced out gone. Of You my daughter, I will protect you. Am in the dark tower lay. A You I will kill you. You will die by my hand. I gotcha leaders album. I was like, okay dear. Like if he's not. The Matthew mcconaughey haven people love he's does tie. And intracellular. He was fine except for when they took him to the real world and he took a grab day coke and he's like, what is this delicious substance in the kid was like it's coke why this coke? It is the greatest I've ever to 'em by. Okay. Lighten I. don't even mind the fish out of water comedy, but the way it was. So it was. So I was also trying to do product placement so. This. Year they they gotta fix that a course. I'm sure what the sky in his attention to detail on his own adaption, these Stephen King Stories I. Don't doubt that he'll do much better job 'cause I even heard that this dark tower fell went through so many different directors and that's part of reason why was an s? Yeah Ron Howard was attached J. J.. Abrams. was attached at one time Javier Bardem was. GonNa. Play role in I. Mean this thing has been all over the place for decades and now we do actually have a dark tower application I forgot the name, the show I think it's on Amazon. There is a Amazon prime original that's basically inadaptation of the dark tower talking married different stories. So you do have adapted and to show format I have not seen reviews for it so I don't know if it's good. There was an Amazon series and they did film a pilot but I don't think it ever aired 'cause they cancelled it. Okay. So I didn't even take off. Yeah or care while I may not. I really hope he gets the chance because in my opinion, he made the best Stephen King or at least one the best Stephen King films our same Ned that doctor sleep movie was so good. It was so underrated like I remember I saw it chapter two with one of my best is end the day. Loved the movie I wasn't a big fan of Eh remember. Her colleague at talking me and saying you want I know there's a bunch of jump scares the they spend like an hour and a half on jump scares in that movie but you all or movies have jump scares. So it's perfectly fine. In Douglas Leap was like, no, we're much better than that. There's no jump scares. We don't waste your time trying to come up with so many ways to save you and I really appreciate this movie that focused on its characters instead of trying to be the scariest thing ever. And that's what really. Turns me off about most films when you to spend more time on. Oh, look how scary or look at all these monsters, looking big creepy hallways and look at all the jump skiers. You could be terrifying by you're setting and just being really moody. You don't really need to indulge all these quick jump scares on all these CD monsters, all these monsters that go boo and everything i. Really. You don't need that. Did you like the first part of it. Yeah. I liked the first. That was what got me is I enjoyed it chapter one. I didn't think it was a perfect movie but I enjoyed it allied and this was such a letdown that was like your. Were GonNA PAT WE'RE GONNA, make a near three hour movie. We're GonNa pad most of that with just different these guys going through different jump scare motions on my I liked it. But I can see why people wouldn't I recognize its flaws and my suspicion is because it was originally conceived as an adapt patient by director cary Fukunaga and then they fired him because They said his budget was too much and I suspect the first part of that film was because he gets story credit on that I suspect a lot of chapter. One is a lot of his script and they just took elements and I feel I probably chapter two was them trying to come up with the the second part and that's probably why it's not as strong. No. an hour and a half movie just added another hour. So just because we wanted him I mean, it was advertise. This is the scariest movie I'll ever see. 'em really it to wasn't that scary. It was kind of annoying. How May Times it wind go boo that I kind of was like okay. I can't be scared of this anymore. But they probably should've adapted the book straightforward as well. Instead of doing want movie as them as kids in one is adults because famously people say the kids stuff's more interesting anyways than the adults stuff with the story. I didn't need reminding having them be adults amount day just it didn't feel like they had a full movie gone on they just. We just had kind of a story and then. Pat Out about bunch. So I appreciate Dr Sleep was a Stephen King station that really took care the writing between characters really tried to adapt the very faithful but different approach to. The shining. And there are some other good Stephen King movies as well. But this was one where I felt like it when above and beyond the material and so if anyone who could just a do something really well with a Stephen King story I think it's gotta be and I think I ever. Hear that he's also adapting another or maize adapting another horror movie I. Know He's got another horror project in the works. Got The second season of Hill House which I think is something else that's The haunting of. It's not called the haunting until house. It says sequel to it called some area. Called something hold on the hunting manner. Yet the hunting and blind now. Yeah. So that's says new current product. He's got enough flex I. think that's what he's doing right now is doing more TV. Think, he should go forward with a I know we just had a adaptation of the dark tower. Also. Bombs I. think that movie didn't do very well but. I don't know how this will happen is I think you whenever one movie doesn't do well, if you try to adapt a too soon than there's a random chance that it might pay for the other ones. I. Think with the following that doctor sleep gets post release. I have a feeling that if they keep it at a reasonable budget, that's another thing if they don't try to put it in like several hundred, million dollars I think you can make your work but that's also gonNA. Plan on how they produces movie. So yeah, we'll see but I mean I'm rooting for because I think more Stephen King outpatients. More horror films. Take note especially, sequels new take notice from Dr Sleep better is a great movie that doesn't get enough attention. Yeah. I WanNa you know we can talk bad about movie studios and stuff but I wanNA applaud at Warner Brothers through down lots of money for two very expansive movies that were sequels to movies that were over thirty years old and that's Doctor Sleep and blade runner twenty, forty nine. I think both of those were amazing films even though nobody watched them. Well. I think blade run of twenty, forty, nine made more money than It made more money doctor sleep but it was still a flop I, budget. Do apply them for taking those wrestle. Can I have been? You know hopefully, this doesn't hopefully the bombing doesn't discourage them from still trying to experiment. I know it's a business in the Acre money-back more brothers does have their successes to and I think that it's important I mean they're making prequels to at now because the second one also made play among. I've Yeah I'm. Not. Looking for. I mean Okay I. Don't know why they're doing that other than for money but yeah. Yeah. Whenever we're making an origin story of the pennywise wound, it's a direct prequel that's not late. The ducks they pretty much announced that as soon as a chapter to made some money on my update. All to do that? Anyway. That is what we have on the show, and of course we mentioned at the beginning next week, we're going to be talking about cuties in all three of us will get canceled for viewing watching people listen the effect. Maybe I should make the title of next week episode called cuties and then. Despite canceled ponds for us because they decided to give us movie a chance. Dang arguing yeah I'm I'm looking for that because I'm probably going to get mad at the people call me pedophile for Wang but that will be the only movie. There's actually a animated animal movie that's coming out for on the Friday also Netflix's will be talking about that here. But yeah, actually cuties comes out on Wednesday. Okay. So you were you'll be able to watch that while make on. Gats coming out September nine. That's good. I. Won't have to rush Friday to watch all the movies in one day. Yeah. Now so that that's That's the same as the rest of the week. There are some big movies coming out for Netflix's that are coming out on earth releasing on Wednesday. So that's really interesting like they got that alone alona homes that millie by Brown. Sherlock Holmes spin off and then also said another movie coming up got Tom Holland and Robert Patterson Called leg we'll yeah what is that called? Ever got the name of it but it's coming out next not not next week but the week after next Ursa bigs are still some big movies coming out even though they're not big blockbuster. Titles and again, we don't know what to do with those. We have no idea if wonder woman is GONNA release dropped a video. There are so many of these other movies that are still. Against Guess. We'll see how Milan does this weekend and see if Disney. Decides. The released black widow and then yeah, are now that's that is the desert point. They did recently Moore's pattern patent at least listing. For black widow on vod already. So they're already thinking about it and I think move on this week in his confirmation putting out 'cause a got also all these Disney shows. Disney plus prequels, and goals and sequels to all the all the marvel movies you know the model t shows that got. So they don't WANNA keep delaying black widow gezairy filmed all the episodes for those marble shows. Yeah and do you think Tended doesn't do well, this weekend will see. On. HBO, Max within, the month Yup. Yeah. We're there to say Chris Renaud on your screen you were media to make money so. Owns to be upset he's GonNa be like. Has To be seen on the big screen. My movies are like. Dude you're are worth getting people killed over. Sorry. We know you people see you as legend boat. Sorry. We we value our money and value safety of others. So you'RE GONNA HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT S. Lean he could awaited e could have. Thing is an antebellum. Bets horror movie that's getting some attention that's supposed to release on the theaters. To not going straight to video. Yeah I mean they're putting a lot of things in theaters but we'll see how it goes and I wonder how much of tenant is all Nolan or how much of it's also warner brothers well, I hear that it was a conversation between Christopher Nolan in more buzz even Christian on hates the idea I think in his mind is getting that okay. I can't really do this at an even next month candy man is supposed to come out in October and same with. A deathly Nihil and also connected, which is from a crisper Aurora. The LEGO movie Ghitis. What's her name Chris McKay No net Chris McKay. Crisan Lord and Chris Miller. Yeah they have a new animated movie Kung acog connected. That was supposed to release timber that God delayed a month. So Willis just dropped the bond trailer yesterday for November as well. And black widow. Swiss. Release November, and a deep water a no time died soul. There's some big movies still been hanging on twenty twenty and I have a feeling that maybe hopefully I'm hoping malign is successful so that we get more this and even though it's probably going to be spread out I'll be like what is worth to not crowd twenty, twenty, one or twenty, twenty, two if. Things don't get better in time. So we'll see anyway until then where do people find, you can find me on facebook at Kobe film page. You can find me on twitter and litterbox just at film nerd five. Okay and this it will be unsettled platforms. You can just go to link tree sash stress and you can find us on facebook instagram twitter apple podcasts, soundcloud your refrigerator. There should be a podcast platform you're just your budgets. Me a many people listen to podcasts that I mean I. Listen To podcasts that much that it would be. Okay. But does everybody does are like all right here's podcast for you. Anyway, I'll be guys have greg rest the time on doctor you next week Yep and for those of you they get to have Labor Day weekend. Enjoy it enjoy don't go party though just don't do that you Tony Hawk pro skater came out and play that or maybe I don't know. Home. Cooking. The confines of your backyard if you have one.

Kayla she got an Idaho man who his sound coming from the engine of his car said a kitten survived his seventeen mile drive home from work Brian Ray said, he didn't hear him meowing coming from under the hood of his car until he arrived home from work and enlisted the help of his wife Amanda, to find the cause, it's crazy to have driven seventeen miles and not have noticed that I had a cat under the hood. He said the Kitten dove under the engine block and we couldn't get her from below and we couldn't get from above ray use A. Carjack to lift the front end of the car. So Amanda could get underneath to look for the kitten. Amanda. Said, she quickly caught a glimpse of the little cat which had a red spot on her face that appeared to be an injury. The rays were eventually able to free the kitten and take it to a shelter where that's identified the injury we later learned that the cats frontal lip was attached from her gum line. The shelter said the kitten named Brier will soon undergo surgery to treat the injury. The shelter said we should take this as a reminder to bang on your hood and cold weather because cats and other small critters liked to climb in for warmth. That's amazing.

Google maps. Car passes you and you get caught is like I don't know how often they take those pictures, but it's like one shot. The picture like how I mean the I don't have to take those pictures, but it's not a real time or anything like how unlucky are you that? It just happens that you were cheating at the very moment that they got you on street view and then and then on top of all that that, your husband would seek you out, search you out and find it. Before you go. On one five, Kiss. Is What's trending Friday everybody let's do trending stories.

Not Happy about this at all daylight savings time Sunday. Remember this at two am clocks are turned backward one hour to one am so you get extra sleep Sunday after Halloween before you to bed the we'd you gotta set your clocks back one hour. So at two am it goes back to one of course Halloween this weekend dopey that person that we talk about on the show on Monday. Who had two big anween party and then everybody coronavirus and and and and you become a feature on our show a health expert. You're offering some tips if families choose to celebrate Halloween during the coronavirus outbreak number one, avoid direct contact or large groups and alter activities are best when at a distance like touring Halloween decorations or something like that. the health experts say the traditional trick or treating. Ads Risk and should be avoided. But if you choose to do it use hand sanitizer after visit at, of course, where face masks and if you're going to hand out candy, they say avoid meeting trick or treaters at the door because it involves close contact and raises the risk of the virus spread and prep bowls of individually wrapped candies ahead of time not just like the big that that everyone. Dubs are handed to or in some cases you know that how's it left that out in front and then it would take three or whatever, and then somebody would dump the whole thing in their bag and runaway. Yeah. don't do. This I can't even believe that people tried to do this and they thought that it was going to work A group of people are trending today the tried to vote illegally in the Bronx on Thursday by shaving their heads to change their appearance. The group of would be voters entered in early voting site at a church despite their attempts to disguise one person at the polling place recognized as having voted there previously with air and confronted them the group read out got away in two vehicles but the person followed them. This is serious chase the called nine, one one investigators attracting vehicles and seeking surveillance video of the voters from the time of the incident and. Any other time you visited the church under state law anyone who votes more than once in an election or even attempts to is guilty of a felony. So you cannot go in there with your Halloween mask afterwards and then say now I, I got a vote again, net flicks is trending the raising prices of the US. Of course they are because that's all everyone's doing right now is watching Netflix. These streaming giant has up the cost of its two plans. It's the first price increase in a year and A. Half say the standard plan which lets people stream onto screens at the same time features access to net Flix, their HD library that's GONNA cost one dollar more going from thirteen to fourteen. The highest price premium plan allows up to four streams at the same time and also lose access to ultra HD programming it goes up to bucks to eighteen dollars a month. So I think it's worth the ball do it that shouldn't Frankenstein. Friday today it's National Candy Corn Day and national breadstick day today to Fred Shaw. Talk better than they tied these or the radio blogs on the. Audio Journal six, fifty. Eight. Fifty K. on go ahead. Thank you. Dear blog on. So my sister sister she is. Fifteen she's a sophomore in high school. She's hinting that made me really sad. The other day she said that she feels like an only child. Appropriate hard, and I know it's not like my father. was born when I was born what since thirteen years apart I try really hard to call her every week and text her face time with her and get back to see her But I don't know it made me really sad and I think I'm Ben Thinking about it a lot of people have a different perspective though because he probably doesn't have the the the perspective to realize how much you are doing for her now versus a lot of other siblings were. Thirteen years apart I mean these efforts that you're making the see her and call her and do all these things my sister, nine eight years apart and I think she liked the fact that I was gone and she was an only child especially considering, I'd already sort of put them what they thought was through the ringer. So like the experiment was me by the time they got to her, they're like whatever yeah. I mean I was an only child until she came I don't look now at my life and feel like an only child at all like I. Don't I don't know I don't feel like I really grew up that way I. Don't know what how I was doing, but it just made me sad that she feels that way and I I don't know what else I can do. So if anybody else I don't know I think you're out here making a life for yourself and also from afar you know trying to be supportive of her. I think it's really cool. What you do for her the other advantages she has that you're A. Girl because I wasn't a very good big brother. My sister adults think went because we were so far apart and I couldn't relate yet. Oh, here I am sixteen she's nine. You know then I go to college and she's she sort of does that on her own and like we didn't have the of communication then now we're super close now we talk about everything. So I feel like it's only probably going to get better. Yeah, I. Hope. So I just broke my heart I know she like she is alone all the time but it made me feel bad says like this might be this particular angle might be a guilt trip. So listen. So lonely. I should probably bring three friends and get hammered in your apartment if. A whole lot less lonely. Her feelings how do you feel? Going for you. So it wasn't her term. So thirsty feed me. The Finger Girl Oh God. No particular friend is up, to no guy. Has, A. How I call Come, getting love you. Start to weekend with an extra thousand bucks win necks and Friday throwback to ask party with DJ and erotic round two on the way as rich show.

Episode 40 The Intricacies and Simplicities of Wine With Jason Lee

"Welcome to the wealth is in the details podcast in this podcast financial planner Peter raskin helps families and business owners understand and prepare for their wealth journey along the way. Thoughtful and detailed planning can provide clarity and confidence as clients confront a multitude of financial decisions, listen in as Peter share stories and insight into people's wealth journeys. Now, let's get into today's podcast. Hello, and welcome to wealth is in the details with Peter Raskin. Raskin planning. Group. Today I'm super excited Peter has a guest on the show and that is Jason. Only. Jason Lee is the owner and CEO of innovations located in Sharon Massachusetts Good Morning Peter. How are you? I'm Eric How are you? I'm excited I mean, this is this is kind of out of the norm for our podcasts you you're bringing on Jason Good Morning Jason, how are you? Doing phenomenal. Thank you. And so so Peter. He's obviously he's the owner and CEO of innovations. Why did you bring him on the show today? Yeah, well. To me it speaks to to who I am and what I love and I thought it would be a great break from kind of the the the drudgery of the pandemic talk and financial talk as well. So it's It's May of twenty twenty and I've been a social distancing with my my lovely wife here in Sharon since early March and I must say it's been a scary time for for all of us. It's it's certainly lonely I miss family and friends. I get to talk to a lot of people at times. It's the four corners of my office I. IT feels a little boring and frustrating and exhausting, and and I will say fattening and maybe a little stress. So you know I'm tired of the the covid nineteen news I don't know about you but that's how I feel. And it may be a little tired of my neighborhood blocks. that. We do usually throughout the week and then adding to that distresses, March and April the weather here in New England has been pretty icky. It's now getting nice. We got some beautiful days ahead of us. So that's Nice I. It was just be a nice change of pace to have a discussion about wine in the business of wine, and so that's why we're doing this today absolutely and I'll tell you before the podcast started just for the listening audience Peter, and I were talking about my weekend project was I put in a huge firepit in my backyard, and so I'm going to sit back and listen because I want to hear all about wine and because when I was at the firepit I had a few drinks with some hotdogs in what goes well with hot dogs I'm. GonNa Learn today. All right guys taken over, Peter thanks. So I thought for our listeners I give a little background about. About, my experience and journey with wine I'm certainly not a collector I'm not an Aficionado I just love to taste I i. love having a glass of wine with. My wife or adult kids or family and friends and I think about it as a wind is part of an experience. and to me wine is part of the travel or the fine dining experience or just or just having dinner with people that I really care about So you know I think about breaking bread. Meaning a meal I think about opening a bottle of wine and and that's that that's It just gives me pleasure and so what I thought we would I don't consider myself to be a to be an expert at all and like a lot of what I do from a professional perspective I try to outsource. As much as possible and I recommend that to my clients I hire professionals like my charity, my my insurance agent, my accountant, my plumber I i. think that's why people hire a professional like me. So I think of myself as a guide and interpreter help people meet their long term financial planning objectives and I hire professionals when it comes to my wine when I'm at restaurants, I always ask for help and advice, and frankly with that in mind I thought it'd be really fun and interesting to talk to my personal supplier, which is Jason Lee and you. We've been introduced to him and I'd like to welcome him to the podcast. While Peter Thank you very much a pleasure and honor to be here with you today. Well I'm so happy you could join us so I'm hoping today we can focus on the business of selling wine. Not. Just the tasting aspect although you know that'll certainly come into our conversation. I think it's hard for listeners to get much out of a wine tasting podcast although that's possible in today's world I think you'll talk a little bit about that. So I thought. We might focus on on the wine experience you hope for your customers and so tell tell us about your journey why you do what you do. Both thank you very much as so believe it or not I'm just like you. I've got a passion for wine in over the years. I've kind of grown that into a business, my background at she lies in technology in consulting. So I've worked for accompanies for two five, hundred like IBM Lotus Development. If you recall back in the one, two, three spreadsheet gays and also on the West Coast I work for a number of tech companies. So within that experience, I, saw that was great opportunity within an archaic business model and the Alcohol Industry One of the most archaic inefficient I I I like to call it inefficient models that you can think of similar to maybe this in the financial world as well. Banking is also an archaic. Industry to me because they are what I consider laggards when it comes to technology adoption, they don't they don't want to jump on anything new they WANNA know that the technology has been tested in it works before they jump on it. So for me I got because I did a lot of consulting. Used to do a lot of restaurant dining, scotch cigars wine, and eventually got to the was like, wait a minute. I'm spending so much money on alcohol why don't just jump into the business and get pregnant to the source sure leads into your business operation side. Well. I'm very happy did j what do you see as the biggest challenges and opportunities in the in the retail wine business? Well. The Greatest Challenges Right now obviously given that You know we're facing covid that is a big challenge for everybody across the Board but alcohol in general is a regulated business both on the state in on the federal level. So there are laws that go way back to the days of prohibition that makes absolutely no sense. And that's kind of the shipping of wine. to other states within your state. Just. Delivery who can touch it can't touch it. You have to have a three tier system has to come from the source through supply distributor, the retailer. So those are some big challenges in the wine business. Also. Take a look the flip side. I consider that as opportunities because we're leveraging, and this is why I got interested in this because my background is in technology. Re rebasing jumped in and said, Hey, wait a minute. We can change this model where typically years ago people would just liquor store retailers. Alcohol retailers were just opened the doors and say, Hey, I hope people come in ten fifteen mile radius and is it with the Pick up the trend was social media that people have been getting jumping online. If, you think about wine. or even just alcohol in general ten fifteen years ago even maybe seven years ago. Did you know of winemakers or vineyards that you? Probably. Did Not know about because there are a lot of right but now with social media, they're all coming out winemakers just like chefs have become celebrities. So that's kind of a challenge an opportunity because now we're fighting with them because vendors are now selling direct. So we have to find our little niche and I. think that's what we've done. With this whole online loving technology. You know the consumers buying a major distributors and suppliers. So then. Seventy, five percent of all, that ball wine all that massive what we call. Mass. Distribution Line. Is bought by the general consumers. So what we've done univation is kind of flip that around and we said, Hey, you know what? There's a group of consumers just like yourself. Peter that want to try something new something different something that is not available to the regular you two in the regular channel to everybody and that's what we've done. Jason could you could you define what you mean by the? How did you phrase it? The the mass consumer market? Yeah. The mass consumer, right? Yeah. Could you define that and what that means? Absolutely. So One of the biggest wind suppliers or now they've kind of classified themselves as a vineyard so that they can ship. into to consumers directly, and that's part of the three tier system is that before vineyards could not sell direct to consumers that model has changed now distributors. Who represent larger vineyards or who have now historically been just a supplier. Now have taken out why you're licenses so that they can sell directly to consumers right. So the major that were talking about I'm sure you've heard of a couple of these maybe Kendall Jackson Woodbridge yellowtail. Those are what I consider bulk wines that if you went to any store ninety percent of them would carry. Santa Margarita for Kindergarten Gio. So if you go through certain varietals You know people would say, oh my gosh I know that. You know. Can we can no Jackson? Barringer. Those are what we consider. The bulk brands, I major brands Jason so you're saying that. These mass produce winds are Kinda like the Marriott experience where the Marriott will have has a whole bunch of different brands But you you pretty much know what you're GONNA get whenever you're staying at one of their brands and the the consumer. Likes that because they know they they know what they're going to get, and that's the same in the mass wind business the consumer knows. What that wine is all about. Exactly and you nailed it right on the head If you want a high high experience you go to the four seasons because you know you're getting, and if you decide that you sometimes Wanna get like a family. Sweet. You go to the residents in or I don't know the Marriott. Your go to their sweets. So it's very and you do get that consistent you know to expect when you go in. So similar to wine year over year if you're a steady Kendall Jackson drinker for Chardonnay, you know that you're going to get that California buttery Okie you know White Star Nate, great flavored that you come to expect you go if you WanNa Sauvignon block. An you get Kim Crawford for example, and you know you're going to get A. A Jacuzzi Zesty citrusy really acidic. Some block a year year over year because it's very consistent and that's not what we're interested in because that doesn't give anyone a new earlier. At the beginning of the PODCAST, you stated exactly what we're talking about which is. To relative people the experience we want to kick them on their emotional level We do not want to be a government divy or some of these. Brands that come out the same wine year over year. So we like to tell a story and we'd like to represent those vineyards and wineries that have story to tell. And so are are are your. Are Your customers, those customers are they're looking always to experiment or looking for the highest quality the highest highest kind of priced wine I mean who are your typical customers? So the customers that we go after or that we cater to our People who just have a I don't want to say passion for why? Because some people are getting into into one and we do not want to turn them off at all. So we always say you know what? It doesn't matter what your experience is your knowledge or level because wine is all about bringing together friends family and to be shared, you're not going to sit in the corner of the room with a bottle wine. Just Kinda you know drinking because you gotta drink it. It's it's wanted to be share and we want. You, we want you to hit an emotional experience with that. So the customers that we like to our clients that we like to cater to are those who want to experience or experiment and try all different ones we brought in wines from Dover last year, and before in the twenty years that I've been doing this. I'm thinking Moldova who would have ever thought madala would be region for wine but guess, what could you just remind our listeners where that is? Not Now now you tested geographically but Madaba from what I can recall is between I believe Ukraine in Croatia and it's a small little region that I think was part of the Soviet Soviet Union or the that back in day. But that what I've learned from Adowa is that they produce more wine per capita than any other place. So I think seventy five percent of the people who live in Moldova are winemakers or have something to do with wine. Well they certainly drinking it. It sounds like. Oh absolutely and that's why it's A. Restarted bringing some of these winds from Moldova and I had never even heard of this this indigenous grapes. So I'm like, okay. Need to help me out. I know the basic varieties as well as some other In Italy that's another thing. There are so many different depending on where you are in Italy, the all regionalized varietals that they've kind of married between you know other grapes and they've come up with hybrids but some of our big sellers Outta Adoga, supper. FA TESCO ALBA Negro Cari. These are all great variety for the first time unlike okay. What? What? Exactly my tasting? But this is exactly what we're talking about I. Believe we sent you a couple of bottles from Madonna and you enjoy that I sure did. Yeah. And would you have gone to a liquor store and gone into a? Dove and wine. No I definitely would not and that's one of the things that I I wanted to talk not to you about today is kind of experience of A kind of experience I'm looking for not that not that every listener needs to be looking for the same thing, but I'm looking to expand my. My Palette you know I wanNA taste different things I want to pair with different kinds of food and I'm always asking for advice. When I when I when I walk into your store, for example, it's a there's a wonderful tasting room and there's lots and lots of options. But I'm looking for the expertise and the advice I know the basics I know what I like typically But I'm looking to expand that and I want someone to say, Hey, have you tried this from this region or this grape something different you might enjoy it. Absolutely, and we always tell people. You just you might not know what kind of great feel like or what kind of variety. But if you just gave a give whomever is helping you and that's what will be l. a. we always tell people do not be afraid to ask for assistance whether you're in a restaurant or you're at a retail liquor store wine shop winery asked questions because if you're one to learn more about wine the person giving you, the information should be more than a static and say, oh my Gosh we both have a passion or or common interest. So I tell people when they come to me and say, Hey I'm just getting into want most of the time it's husbands or boyfriends of the girl, the wife or significant other who started them on the wine so they get into like I. Don't. Drink what. They're drinking. So. Then I asked him like, what would you like do you like? Black coffee do you drink regular coffee with sugar and cream delight things that are sweeter and once you get a couple of questions answered. Most most. People who are in the wine business we can pretty much match up what you might like for tasting profile. So that's why we always ask questions tell them what you like and what you don't like One thing at a lot of people might not like dryness or the tenants from the grapes which kind of make your mouth dry pucker up. So even when you're drinking while you're like Ooh you kind of doing that. Thing. Motion and sound with your mouth because it just feels like the moisture. Your tongue. Right and We also say. Go to wine tastings. And then travel drink the local wines you're you're you WANNA find out in New England. You can go to Rhode Island their vineyards in Rhode Island, you can go to. The finger. Lakes in New York upstate New York. So even in New England and even in Connecticut wineries, wineries and vineyards which are too big different. Classes I can quickly explained a vineyard. They actually grow the grapes, a winery they might grow their grapes, but they also might by other vineyards to make the wine. So those two distinctions but a aside from that you can also come to ovation's because we have forty bottles of wine on tap for wine tastings. So we have twenty four read sixteen in any combination of the above and our staff here will be more than static unhappy to educate you entertain the same time which recalled `edu-tainment and we do that through our tastings in little mini classes. In frankly, we've been to a number of your classes at that location and it's they're really fun really fun. It's it's great to have Usually we're doing pairings with food or or cheese and bread, and it's just really fun to hear about the wines and to taste them. And then to enjoy other people's company while you're doing it, it's fun experience and it is educational you're learning something. Absolutely and it's another day. Peter you've got to think about this, your finances, your financial adviser, you help people meet their financial goals. I'm in the wind business and I just make people happy through one. But if you really think about it, are we looking to become Somalia's Looking to get in the industry I mean I'm already in the industry but for yourself. If you think about it, you don't do really WanNa get into the technical aspects of learning how to how to grow grapes and Achy do the vinification for wine and nodes tire asa level in the soil level in the moisture coming out with no, you just want to know the basics and maybe a little bit more about the wine. So that's kind of what we like to focus on. Re understand that you do not need to know the Ph level or the acidity you just want to know why do I like this wine and why is it so awesome or wise? It tastes phenomenal or tastes different when it's paired with a steak or fish or oysters and do I really need to drank white wine with seafood. I tell people you know what? You're the drinking it. You can drink red white. Rosa. With whatever meal you want. If you think it tastes good for you because everyone's tastes POW. Palette is very different and I just say go with what you like. That's the greatest. That's the greatest message that. Really Don't don't try to be don't judge yourself. If you're. Not. Real knowledgeable. Just enjoy enjoy the experience. Absolutely. Absolutely. I will say that whenever I travel I love going to to vineyards I I. There most of them that we visit whether it's in Europe or in California or even Virginia a Rhode Island Maine wherever we are we tend to go to a vineyard and it's they're usually family run businesses in and it's really a fun experience but but how do you find these of vineyards? How do you find the quality wines in in? Europe. or or outside of your, you know your experience, how how are you finding them and then bringing to your them to your customer? We have a vast network of friends and partners overseas. I could not do. This is certainly not a one team job. we have local people feet on the ground that will visit the vineyards and you've got to remember even like Moldova it Christ's we're looking at winds from Croatia Georgia. Other European countries where there underrepresented and these are vineyards that the larger importers and distributors suppliers would never pick up because they produce probably less than twenty five, thousand bottles. Right. So for a large distributor they they wanNA talk to vineyards, wineries that are producing in the hundreds of thousands. Because if you think about, you know again, they need to cater to the mass consumer market they they they want more than two thousand cases. Twelve bottles to a case. So if we're talking about a vineyard that's producing under twenty five thousand. Two thousand cases just over two thousand. So a large supplier or importer is GonNa want ten thousand or twenty thousand cases because they might have you know six, seven, ten states to sell through. So for us, we actually have locals Envisat restaurant to restaurants, and even when we get down there, there's there's a lot of trade associations and especially Italy right now, the government is very, very big on promoting Italian wine. Just section a US you know our government is helping the farmers right now during covid. In Italy, they are helping the Italian wine vineyards and wineries in what we do is we have a partners importers that basically go out we meet with different winds Redo the tastings we'll send out our educators are are some small as for a better term and they'll try the winds. And they'll come to me and say, Hey, I like this this and this. and. Then we'll go back in I'm on the operational side, we'll work out a deal and. Basically get a container and we say you know we talked to maybe a twelve, fourteen, twenty, thirty small vineyards every feel container. In the literally ve innovations becomes the online window or the store for that vineyard. So now think about it I mean you said earlier, you travel to all these vineyards and really liked the experience right. So now think about this. Do you along with your family, your colleagues you go to Italian winery or even a vineyard. Let's say you're not Italian villa. Has, they've got. Rosa Rosa Grapes finds everywhere. The owner comes out the winemaker comes out in there cooking on a big roast or a lamb or pig on the fire pit they've got shot Kutaragi out there giving you the full spread. What are you feeling at that moment? You feel connection now 'cause you're like, oh my gosh, we're here in Tuscany. We're looking at the sunset over grapes and we're having this phenomenal wine. Whether, that wine is good or not is irrelevant because you are. Because, when I come home, I'm like, wait a minute the swine doesn't taste the same anymore. It's because you're you're you're you're you're overlooked in the vineyards setting you've got you've got your family you got your wife your long and you're drinking white not giving a care in the world and you're having a phenomenal time. And and now you have an emotional connection to the vineyard to the wine and that's what we want. Because then you go to the venue into on this one. Guess what? Your wife in that vineyard. By time you get home we've already delivered to your door. That's that's the that worked on after. So now after you leave the vineyard. You'RE NOT GONNA, call all my guys Be I WANNA buy. A three more cases of this. Note, you just come sort of innovations boom most areas ship overnight you get within less than several days. Yeah. This is fascinating is such a big world out there and there's so many options and I think people get a bit overwhelmed with with the number of options and that's why I think it's so helpful to have A. The professional like like you win and In your your your staff, help us choose wines. It really makes all the difference in the world to me. It really It makes it an enjoyable experience. I know what we do we are members of your wine club and every quarter. Every three months we get a case of of wine ship to to the House and and it's always a A blend of different kinds of wines and it's it's a lot of fun to taste the different ones that you're shipping that that that period of time it's fun. Absolutely and Peter not to call you out but you've got your entire family at home. Now you got kids at home the wife at home I think he called me a couple of times We have a lot more people than line now. You have the place another order sometime sued. Quickly You know this has been a tough time for for so many retail businesses and and so many of our listeners and their families I don't want to get to get into. into the the pandemic issues but but how is this challenge? How is this covid nineteen pandemic challenge you and Your Business while. You kind of stated that as impacting a lot of businesses. Are Friends in the especially our friends in the restaurant and hospitality business they have been devastated. By the pandemic because no one's going out in, obviously people are trying to help out with the takeout and traditional liquor stores are considered essential during sheltering. So they don't I guess the governor does not want people at home to kill each other. So they're thinking that alcoholic keep him. Happy. but for for Wien ovation. So it's a good thing that are. Are The location is traditional retail store so that It's been steady but where we really are doing well is on the online and for innovation, even though our event side is shut down. For obvious reasons. We have been for the last decade been really focusing on the quality of service for the online business and that has not really impacted us during covid. If anything it's given US more greater opportunities in more opportunities to expand the business. We're working. We're trying to work with our partners. Chefs Somalia's in hospitality industry and were looking for opportunities. We're trying to help each other out in right now we know that. People are not gonNA, be able to come out and see us so were. We think just recently last week was our first episode relaunch what we're calling innovations life, and we've partnered with food network chef Kevin Disdain. And, he's doing his quick. You know seven-minute meal prep in this you're at home. This is how quickly can make this meal and I'm literally just biocide drinking wine. But you know these are things that we're doing and it covid nineteen is really pushing people to be creative. and. That's why you're seeing a lot more online video stream of wine education, drinking drinking at home with friends, and we've actually come up with some kits where we shipped to five different families a five different friends. And together on video sharing. Conference saying during their own little wine tasting of three two, three four bottles. Oh. What a great idea. What funds Oh. Yeah. Again, it's all about sharing France family. It's that emotional inexperienced that we're trying to promote. Yeah. That's great. Up. Jason how can someone contact you in your wines? You're how? How do they reach out? If. They're interested in in getting more information or or expanding their wine tasting experiences. Absolutely worry we are on all the major social media we're on FACEBOOK DOT COM via vacations instagram Wien Ovation's twitter U. S. 'cause. US based company on twitter.

Nana what world welcome to another episode of the Ocho presented you in partnership as always that's been nations blogging the boys dot com my name. Rj Choice of course from bt be an from writer as you're humble host on the OCHO. It is Monday January. Sixth Two thousand in an twenty and it is officially the first full day. The Dallas cowboys will be operating without Jason Garrett as their head coach in quite light. Some time we have. I want to say we have a lot to get into but it kind of feels like we don't have that much just because this is a subject that we've gone round round and round and round and round on you know I mean we'll we'll you know we have the whole offseason had of us right and we'll we'll definitely have the episode. That's you know. What were the five best Jason? Garrett Games aims and what are you gonNa Miss About Jason. I know right now. You're filling snarky so you're probably saying nothing But you know like when I when I plan right you you know and when I thought okay you know what's the podcast scheduling look like. Whatever you know? Obviously we all thought that this was going to happen. And so I thought okay. You know where the moment moment happens. We'll have we'll have Jason Garrett was fired or was let go or was dismissed or whatever you verbiage it was going to be. We'll have that episode and we'll talk about it and how it it was this big decision and maybe there was this press conference at the star. You know we we kind of it was kind of what I thought I started structure. You know my thoughts and whatever But but given the events of the last week because this you know this is our episode for Monday. It's going up very late Sunday night. As of a week ago the Dallas cowboys season was over and everyday every day right we all probably woke up and thought okay now. We're looking forward to away. But this is the day this is going to be today to Jason Garrett and the cowboys go their separate ways however for you know it's going to be explained Monday okay. It's black Monday across the NFL. nope not nothing Tuesday. nope nothing Wednesday. Nothing Thursday Thursday. got a little interesting because because of the report that ESPN had sportscenter. Had specifically the sportscenter twitter account that reported that it had been decided that Jerry Jerry agents in Steven Jones and the Jones's had decided they were moving on from Jason Garrett and everybody I mean all sorts of different outlets reporting that it was done. It was effectively happening. It was just a matter of time and so that's why when I don't know I don't know what you can attribute honestly the first moment of the news breaking into I suppose I would attribute it to Jay Glazer Fox who on Sunday at halftime of the Eagles. seahawks wildcard game. You know had a tweet go out where he said it's official you know they've told Jason Good you know whatever and then also you know the onslaught started in the Adam Schefter of the world's getting in on this and then it became official official than we got the official statement from Jerry Jones and whatnot But Man I just I can't remember any real. NFL story that that unfolded like this so because of it. I mean we're not sitting here having the you know. Oh Man. The era is over conversation because it was awkward and it was clunky and it was known and it was anticipated and it was expected and so it was all these things and so in a weird way was kind of like okay. I'm trying to think of You know what it was like you know. Forgive me for this if you haven't it's in friends because I know it's off of Netflix. And I referenced friends a lot if you have seen friends When Ross is breaking the news to Phoebe and Joey that he's the father of Rachel's baby and they already know and phoebe sarcastically? Says that is brand new information. That's what this kind of felt like right with this whole or it's official now in for what it's worth it really truly is official. There were a lot of jokes are a lot of jokes going around real. It's really happening. And I feel bad for Jason. Yeah because it's really awkward that you know the biggest job the biggest thing he's ever done professionally had to end in that really awkward way but here was the official statement statement that the cow was put out you can read the blog on the DOT com. We are extremely grateful to Jason Garrett for his more than twenty years of service of the Dallas Cowboys as a player assistant coach and the head coach said cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones his level of commitment character and dedication to this organization has been outstanding at every stage of his career in his nine four years as a head coach He guided our team two division championships while also having them in position to play for the NFC title in the last game of the year and four other seasons. His tenure of leadership triple be characterized by his ability to produce teams that always played with great effort emotion and passion and he represented our organization with great pride loyalty and respect. Jason Garrett's legacy with the Dallas cowboys will always be that of someone who strived for greatness every day that he walked through the door and someone who instilled the virtues of enthusiasm hard working appreciation for the profession in all of the men who played with him and for him he is and always will remain a cherished member of the Dallas Cowboys family and its contributions. The organization are greatly appreciated. And I think all that's well said and it is nice and look I mean Jason Garrett is a really Nice Guy Guy and I. I've been fortunate in my life and in my career to be around him a couple of times and interview a couple of times and I I mean I I know owed you know there is. I don't WanNa hear how nice if a guy he was. Well you know what he was an incredibly Nice Guy and incredibly nice people deserve to have that said about about them. He was a gentleman in everything. He did In every interview he ever gave in every moment and You know this just look you gotta understand. This episodes are kind of off the wall episode as the week goes on as things kind of fall into place where the cowboys coaching search will game organized. But this is our kind of just. Let's let's download our brain and all of our thoughts and I'll share with you this story. And it's something that really changed the way I perceive Jason Garrett Myself Now I if you're unaware I know that Jane Slater's talked about this before. After Jason Great Does a press conference he does what's called having a couple of emanates and he gets off the stage air he he got off the stage. Obviously everything's past tense. And he would just kind of talk to the local media. Whoever was there whatever reporters there and just kind of a follow up to the press conference it calls it a couple of lemonades and this pasture training camp? He told the story about devouring strawberries and it was something and I know I mentioned it before. It was Jason witten mentioned after what was his final game his final home game. The first first time when the cowboys lost the seahawks twenty seventeen. After that game it was on Christmas Eve. and Jason Wooden was asked. How do you go home and deal with the fact that it's Christmas etcetera in any talked about you just have to devour strawberries? And I didn't know what that meant when Jason witten set it but then this past summer at training camp oxnard Jason Garrett talked about how how There was this old Buddhist proverb that he had heard and it was A tale about a man who was running and just being chased by Lions and tigers and elephants and being chased and being chased and being chased and that this man being beaten chased by Lions and tigers and offense and his running running running and he gets to the edge of a cliff and it looks around. He's got lions and tigers and elephants chasing him and he looks down and there's a branch and he looks back and there's Lions and tigers and elephants coming coming coming in he decides okay. I'm just going to jump off. And it's a jumps off and he catches onto the branch the lions and the Tigers and the elephants there on the edge of the cliff and they're looking down there ready to just come after him and this guy's hanging on the branches engine is hanging on the branches trying to figure out what to do and he doesn't know what to do and he looks at the base of the branch and he sees some some rats and I think they're rats might have. Can you know another animal. But some rats and their gnawing at the branch. And he's like. Oh my gosh. And so he looks the lions and the Tigers and the elephants turned out of him mini looks over and he sees the rats gnawing at the branch in withering away at the branch and he looks down. And there's this pit of snakes and he doesn't know what to do and so he looks up and he's got the lions and the Tigers and the elephants and and he looks down the snakes and he looks over and he's got the rats and he doesn't know what to do but at the other end of the branch that ended the Branson's sticks out is just the most abuse Bushel of strawberries that he's ever seen in his life and he looks up again and he sees the lions and the Tigers and the elephants and he looks down and he. This is the pit of snakes and he looks at the base of the branch and he sees the rats and then he looks at the end of the branch and he sees the Bushel of strawberries. The most beautiful Bushel of Strawberries Everson and he decides to devour the strawberries. And I'm told that story. I immediately thought back to when Jason John Wooden had had used that expression. Because you don't hear that a lot right devour the strawberries. It's a very unique Expression and you know we asked him well. What does that mean they talked about? How you you know the lions and the Tigers and the elephants are supposed to represent what's behind you and what's chasing you on life the things you can't get away from and the Pitta snakes represent you know the trouble? Is that lie ahead. What's before you what's under you? And you know the the rats gnawing at the branch represents kind of the distractions going on in your life and and the point of the point of life and a lot of ways. It's just devour the strawberries and I thought that was really powerful and I cannot tell you how truly I I would not. I use this word. If it were not truly truly charismatic he is and so I think today I talked about you know this was going to be the Jason Good episode. You know what this this is. The Jason Great Episode. The Guy did not fail as the Dallas Cowboys head coach for lack of want for lack of effort for lack of try for lack of. Just this good humanness. I mean he is an incredible person and it is unfortunate that it didn't work out and I'll tell you what the the way it it worked out the way it went down. I thought was really unfortunate. And that's something I think we'll get to on the other side of this take a break. Let's get reset And we we had a lot of references. We've mentioned friends and everything you know.

As you know as the cowboys made it official official on Sunday in I saw a friend of the show. Dave Helmet tweeted this out. I mean look. It could not have been coincidence. You know I I mean I don. Sometimes things happen with the cowboys that people think were planned and sometimes I think that that's just really lucky for them that it worked out that way. It could not have been a a coincidence that this news dropped during the Philadelphia Eagles playoff game the game the cowboys would have been playing and had they won the division but I you know Sunday was a rough day for Jason Guy and I say that obviously understanding that the news of his departure from his dream job fully crystallized the day they started. And you might have seen this if you follow me on twitter if you don't. I'm at our Joe. The day started and I was the first. Nfl Sunday obviously the season season with without all the Games at noon. Because it's weekend right and so There's only one game at noon and we'll we'll get to. I guess at the end of episode just talking about the winners in division around and everything everything but Jay Glazer a Fox because Sunday morning is typically when Adam schefter rappaport and Jay Glazer and all the insiders drop their they're big storylines etc and Jay. Glazer went on Fox and he talked about how the cowboys because we found out over the weekend. We haven't even talked to you and I. I know it's crazy. It's been a busy weekend. I was I was at the Alamodome San Antonio all day on Saturday it was awesome for the all American bowl in the San Antonio Sports All Star game but Saturday we found out that Mike McCarthy former Green Bay packers head coach superbowl champion wanted Super Bowl in what was then cowboys stadium now. Eight T stadium He and Marvin Lewis both interviewed for the Cowboys Head coaching job. And we'll talk about that in a second but That you know really caused created a really awkward Saturday and Sunday. Because how can you be interviewing people for your head coaching opening when you still technically employed Jason Gary. And that was everybody's question. There was a really fair question and so then Jay Glazer on Sunday went on Fox and said that the cowboys were interviewing people but the Jason Gert was still lobbying them to keep his job and that every time the cowboys would say okay. We're going to move onto Jason Gray. What say hold up you know hear me out etc and it just it painter Jason Good in a really poor light and and it was It was again not a good look for him not to go look for the cowboys. Either because look and now they've officially part of ways. Maybe that's why I now now. I'm just speculating. Maybe the couch say you know what this looks really bad for us that we are continuing to employ Jason Gear while we bring another coaches to interview. Because look if you were a head coach. Would you take that job with the cowboys. If you if you saw Jason Good in the building you you would say why what would say are. Are you sure that you're moving from this guy and are you sure. Because he's still here and it would be weird. I mean it would be weird if you were Mike McCarthy and according to Jay Glazer by the way to interview with McCarthy went so well that he extended stay in Dallas. He stood on Sunday But but I mean it was very awkward. I mean the way the cowboys were number. One handling the situation at number two looking and interviewing for a head coach was incredibly awkward awkward. They they kind of had one foot in one foot out. It was like they were trying to you know. Find somebody new date before breaking up with their their rex or soon to be ex or whatever but there's a lot analogies you could use none of them are flattering. And so that's why it was a really awkward. This this is look. This is a really in many ways awkward and complicated process. Naturally right whenever you have to fire someone if you've ever had to do that in your job and your your professional life or you've ever been fired or whatever you know that that could be awkward. It's awkward to say you're fired. We don't want you working here you know. Your services are no longer required. Whatever that is naturally daily awkward thing however generally every year every? NFL team finds a way to do it as efficiently as possible. Right the Monday after the season ends is the day you say you know what man Things didn't go the way we wanted. They didn't go the way you wanted to go the way we wanted. And we're GONNA move on. We're going to try to find somebody else wish you. The best of luck will be a reference. Keep the keep the quarter zips and the capture guy but You Know Oh good times and wish the best. Merry Christmas happy New Year right like. That's that's how every NFL team handles it. And that's generally the way. It goes the cowboys though. They decided to make this the most awkward. Clunky you know situation. That could totally happen. I if if you've ever seen forgetting Sarah Marshall fantastic movie and there's a CNN forgetting Sarah Marshall if you have seen it where Mueller coons character I forget her name and might also be Rachel. Now that I you think about that To go back to our friends reference. She's talking to Jason Segel's character and Jason Segel at this point in the movie has tried to flirt with her and it has kind of blown up in his face already so he's already kind of realize that and so she walks up to him and she says hey. Do you want to go on a hike. Because they're in Hawaii. If you've ever seen the movie and Ed you want to go on a hike and Jason Segel Scherzer just goes. Yeah you know what I could totally use like a friendly hang out and it's just like dude stop. I'm saying all of those things you're making it so awkward you know just say yes Riley. Just say Oh yeah. I'm going to hype. Don't don't make it this. Oh Yeah Yeah. We're friends you and I were just friends and you know I mean. That's that's what the cowboys didn't instead of just going on to hike. They made it super complicated and they looked really bad. I think it's fair to say that look really bad To many people but ultimately you know that that stuff will fade away. That's the reality of it right. That will fade away because they officially moved off from Jason Gura. They have a job opening. They're going to be interviewing people. They're already interviewing people for and that's all people are focused on and all all due respect to Jason Grab on the subject of the cowboys. Coaching search. We mentioned that we would get to Mike McCarthy Marvin Lewis. I like the idea of Megan. McCarthy there is some legitimate data to support the idea that Aaron Rodgers regression which is quantifiable. All over the last couple of years is what held the Green Bay packers back and Mike McCarthy May or may not have paid the price for that. I don't totally buy into that but it is interesting. I'll say that and and So while that's interesting I don't know I mean it makes sense. Adjacent lost the replay games ultimately where the Dallas cowboys right two of them quarterback McCarthy so it makes sense to say you know what the do that we couldn't be. Let's let's talk to that. Do I think that that makes sense. The Marvin Lewis thing. I have no idea that I have a very very difficult time explaining. I will say though. They Yahoo's Charles Robinson had on the sports podcast that he does with two rows Paler. Great podcast go check now. Last week they talked about how. If the cowboys higher say Lincoln Riley a young college coach guy that comes from that level level to the NFL that they could pair him with a seasoned defensive coordinator. We talked about that. And how it could be. Mike Zimmer whose Minnesota Vikings obviously advanced to division rats. So he's not available right now and so I and I wrote about this by the way on Sunday. So check it out com- if the cowboys and everything is hypothetical hypothetical if the cowboys hired Lincoln Riley it does on one hand sort of make sense. Okay Marvin Lewis Defensive Coordinator and believe me I know Marvin. Lewis didn't have success as the head coach. Cincinnati Bengals head coach. There for fifteen years. Never WanNA play off game. I know I know I know however Marvin Lewis also in that time. That's a pretty good defenses in Cincinnati right. A lot of them with Mike Zimmer also Marvin Lewis if you were unaware Orlando. We have some younger fans. He was the defensive coordinator for the two thousand Baltimore Baltimore Ravens. One of the greatest defenses. That's ever lived and so if he's your defensive coordinator while also being this sort of figure to help let's call it Lincoln Riley though it could be whoever call it matt rule whoever if he could help your Lincoln Riley in in transition with the NFL. Hey Dude you know in the this is the kind of stuff you because there is a learning curve and I thought on the subject of Yahoos Charles Robinson he did mention that he you you know. I'll just read his tweets integrate twitter threat on Sunday night and of his thread point. Six this is on twitter. Charles Robinson a reason why we're hearing head coach names with significant. NFL experience you mentioned McCarthy Lewis paid and we'll talk about Sean Payton soon and less about rural Riley and Meyer is that Jerry Jerry specifically is in bid on on another elongated teaching process like the last one with Garrett being proven will count and his point number eight point number. Seven was about Mike McCarthy and Jim has a point number eight after days of calls. I don't think the Dallas Cowboys job is going to end up with someone who's resume is steeped. In College. Matt Rule Lincoln Riley Urban Meyer are and Dan Mullen. Haven't been prioritized at the top. I think Jerry is driven defined. NFL Experience and win. Now we'll see how big of a factor that ultimately ends up being the win win now sort of thing and you can totally by that Jerry. Jones must believe he has a legitimate roster. He must expect somebody to come in. And kind of take it to the next level right away if you did ultimately want to go the route of Lincoln Riley or a Matt rule or even an urban Meyer. Dan Mullen it makes sense to have somebody like a Marvin Lewis who at least has seen the NFL NFL before they can exist as this mentor of sorts while also focusing on the side of the ball that he has been a lead at at times throughout his career which indicates indicates Marvin Lewis is as a defense corner. Plus most of these college level dude that we're talking about or I'll often minds so it's not like you are bringing in an elite college college defensive mind and then you have to pair what sort of Marvin Lewis of offense. That's how it's GonNa work but I don't know we're gonNA hear a lot. So buckle up make sure subscribed to block of the voice podcast feed or available wherever you get podcast. If you need a link just hit me up and I promise I'll get it for you All the best of Jason longer he was always great to me individually anytime we interviewed him on. Espn San Antonio or training camp in Oxnard I mean I admire the way. He lives his life life. I admire the type of man he is and I hope you find success. Wherever he goes next it will be interesting? I should say to find out if he does get an interview with the New York giants if he does get an interview with the Carolina Panthers or Cleveland Browns or whatever that will be very interesting because the cowboys officially dismissing him. Does I mean that he can now go. Do those types of go do interviews. Go make visit so obviously keep you updated on that as well Just quickly on the the playoff games that we saw I thought the Buffalo Bills where a lot of fun to watch and I think they'll be great to watch for some time with the Houston. Texans were awesome if you listen to my Saturday morning radio radio show this adding one a hangover on ESPN ANTONIO. I've been saying for a while that the Texans are GonNA AFC championship game. So we're knocking on the door. They're look I. The the titans did it. I was really I mean. I wasn't stunned right because you know we've all seen the Patriots this season and they've clearly been you know they've clearly we've had weaknesses and been susceptible and almost gotten guide and the cowboys almost beat him and everything but there's still the Patriots and until they are not the Patriots. It's still hard to believe that they won't be the Patriots. It's hard to believe they won't come back next year. And do it but Ryan Tannehill. By the way I'm fighting Texas AGGIE and class of two thousand twelve and Ryan Tannehill was as our quarterback when I was going to school now. He's our quarterback wide receiver for Dry Johnson. Right so I saw Ryan Tannehill. Turn into a quarterback at Texas am damn with Von Miller. It was awesome but Ryan Tannehill did it and I think that I think the times are probably going to destroy them Baltimore but you know what they. He gave an awesome awesome experience on Saturday night. And I will be honest. I have not been a fan of the new titans uniform so I know they're not new any more more and it's been awhile but I like that combination. I liked the navy pants with the Navy Helmet and the White Jersey. I don't like it when they wear the light blue. The baby blue. I don't it doesn't look on on them. I don't like the Navy Jersey if you go. Why tops navy bottoms with that navy helmet? I can get down with that but good for Tennessee on Sunday. Man Dan I tell you what. It sucks for the New Orleans saints that they had such a more awesome season than the Dallas cowboys. For example to put things in our terms and that they're season's over just one week later I mean I don't know I own we didn't even talk about Sean Payton but Charles Robinson to go back to him again are we're GonNa see if we can get Charles on by the way later this week. Hopefully no no promises fingers crossed but Charles did tweet that he was told you know. Can't rule that out. I mean it is Sean. Payton is the Dallas cowboys. And you look at it now. That's three years in a row for the saints. I mean two thousand seventeen. They have the horrible loss in the division around against against the Vikings. Obviously you know the play and then last season the horrible non penalty in the NFC championship game. And then this year. You know it's it's hard man. It's it's so hard to just come back on a personal mission like that and it really felt like. That's what last year saints did Right. Like I felt like the two thousand eighteen saints were on a mission to avenge the Minnesota Miracle and they just got robbed by that. You know no communists Italian game you know one of the teams. I think that's really in in terms of teams that I follow and my root for that has really done a great job of coming back after not getting done is the twenty four team Spurs and if your San Antonio unlike me in two thousand thirteen when they loss in game. Am Six and reality shot and it was off on the loss game. Seven the 2014 Spurs showed up to beat the heat in the finals and they dismantled them and it really felt like. That's what the we're GONNA do last season and this season I mean you know the Michael Thomas Season he had was so awesome and breeze break and all the records and everything. But it just didn't feel the same to me and and it was interesting the big props to kirk cousins. He's one of the best news I've ever had. I interviewed him at the Super Bowl. He's a spurs fan by the way and really happy for Kirk. Just awesome for him. What a throw at the end? Set it up to Adam feeling. And then the touchdown to Rudolph I mean awesome. Awesome for Kirk cousins and I I talk a lot about this Russell Wilson. He gets and we'll get to that game shortly but Russell wasn't gets a lot of craft for being Mr Corporate whatever. I think it's awesome. How into you know the World Russell is and he's cognizant of his career and he's really focused on things? If you're unaware Russell Wilson has a podcast and Kirk does that to kirk has a weekly radio show. qurqus is really really really smart. I don't think he gets enough enough credit and I interviewed him when he was still playing for Washington so when he silent Minnesota it was awesome. Because now the root for the guy right like now. cobbs fans got to root for him without feeling awkward or uncomfortable but awesome for Kirk cousins. And then thank you seahawks. Thank you neon Cowboy's. Thank you for getting it done so well. We'll pick the games as we girls on. I think it's cowboys fans with you. Know I don't really mind on the Patriots as much as most cowboys fans but the Patriots are gone. So you don't have to worry about that. The Eagles are gone. I think the only real things you have to quote unquote worry about. If you're a cowboys fan. Dan Are the forty niners. Because you don't want to get to six before the cowboys I know the Patriots and steelers variety there but whatever in the packers because nobody wants to see Aaron Rodgers do because he's Aaron Rodgers but anyway it was good games good football four really close games ultimately it was interesting you know in. I know you probably don't WanNa hit but really unfortunate for Carson Wentz. I mean that's just that sucks and it's going to be interesting to see how the NFC east overall kind of reload this offseason. Because they're you'RE GONNA have new head coaches and three of the four cities and the eagles you know have now the most tenured head coach and can they get healthy. Can they stay healthy. You can keep a lot these players around. What's going to happen with Sean? Jeffrey and I don't know there's a lot of questions and so it's going to be a fun division to watch and a fun division to kind of keep track of but I I think I want the seahawks. That's kind of where I stand. I I'd probably go seahawks. I'd love to see the Ravens do it. I mean to love to see the Vikings do it or the chiefs and the Texans percents. I mean I hate the Texans. I'm honestly I'm cool with anybody else. Except for the forty niners and packers like I just said so. Hopefully you know people say that the divisional around is the greatest weekend in sports are typically four incredible games and data coming up this week. But so is a lot of Jason. Good talk and a lot of college talk in general so make sure you stick around for all of it on the blog on the voice packets. Also make sure to me a favor Have the best day ever have the best day of all time. Have the absolute best Monday ever. You know why because because you deserve it we will see you gotTA.

As Megan the stallion savage featuring beyond say jumps from number five to number one how the track added beyond say to a new remix a few weeks ago and the song has seen great returns ever since it just had to wait a moment until it had its chance at number one is the first number one were. Megan congrats to her and the seventh number one for beyond say Who lasted number one with another collaboration if you recall when she similarly assisted another song well after it's released when she hopped on Ed Sheeran's perfect? That song hit number one. In December twenty seventeen savage replaces day and Justin bieber's charity single stuck with you which debuted at number one a week ago That song actually falls to number thirteen this week before that DOJ cats is say-so between the montage lead for a week. And then a week before that. The Scots from the Scots Travis. Scott and kid cudi's ruled for one week so that is the fourth week in a row. Where a collaboration hit number one and that comes after thirty two straight weeks or the number one song was by a Solo Act. So when it rains it pours. I'm could we see another collaboration takeover next week number one? Well time will tell if lady Gaga Ariana Grande as new rain on me. We'll debut atop tally so stay tuned to billboard DOT COM. We have a lot more up on coming up on rain on me before that elsewhere on the new hot one hundred in terms of new pop singles. Jonas brothers new single x featuring carol. Gb's at number thirty three. I really like that song a while. Katy Perry's daisies debuts at number forty and that is the first single from her next album which we discussed last week I was GonNa ask you what you thought of the show Bro. Carol G Song I like it. I think it is Kinda cute to considering. They had to do it in lockdown but they may do pretty well considering the circumstances. Yeah just just really quickly I. I think that I've been impressed by how the Jonas Brothers Post happiness begin. Singles have not been phoned in at all. Like what a man's gotTa do and And now ex have had actually sounded really top notch from them so they're just kind of continuing that that positive momentum from last year. Yeah it's it's it's pretty great. I'm all I'm all in for it. I'm I'm all for it next step over on the billboard. Two hundred albums chart future scores his seventh number one album seven number ones. Jeez as high off life bows top. The list with one hundred fifty three thousand equivalent album units in the US earned in the weekend. Dean May twenty-first according to Nielsen Music. M R. C. Data. Now that's futures biggest week in terms of units earned for any of his solo had drake collaboration. Once that was obviously a lot bigger but still for for for a solo album. It's his biggest week. So congrats to future most of high off life starting some was actually driven by streaming tippety with sixteen thousand of its first week coming from album sales and those sales were largely driven by merchandise album. Bundles sold via futures web store. And also some signed albums that he was selling through the same store and unlike last week's number one album Now's good intentions. Which we talked about on last week's show which had one hundred merch bundles. Helping its first week. Future only had a handful relative handful. Just seventeen helping his first week so congrats to future and next week. It actually looks like another rap. Album could lead the list At least in terms of early forecasting it looks like Ghana's new album WANNA might start atop the list and if it does start at number one it would mark gunness first number one album. Would you call that a number one for Ghana a WANNA GONNA a one hundred WANNA on never mind? Oh boy. I like that album a great deal. Well let's talk about rain on me. Man. It came out last. Friday may twenty second one week ahead of the release of Gaga Matica? And I can't love it more. I love this song. I tweeted yesterday that I listened to it three times when I was on a jog. It gave me a lot of you know a lot of inspiration. What do you feel about rain on does it? Did it give you life where you screaming? Ask the top of your lungs as you were jogging. I mean internally I was for sure I you know I'm I'm all in on a dance pop Kaga you know and and I again as we talked about repeatedly on the show this year like the fact that dance pop and disco. Pop is making this return it. I think it's awesome and I think I think people are are rightfully excited by new Gaga Music. And you know when you have a new Gaga Music. Meaning like when it's like dance pop music where you know after a moment. We didn't have sort of dance pop from Kaga and now she's kind of bringing it full force with an album. That's taking her back to the dance floor but also a new single that teams rope with our day. So you have like these two superstars together and I just think it it made for really compelling combination. I think to the public at large. Yeah I think it's a combination of a few things why this works so well. I totally agree with you that Gaga in full dance pop mode is is really still so impressive That Arianna has has moved a little bit away from it. But when you get her in that sort of electro pop break free mode that also going to be really successful and then yeah and then also the fact that you know they both can sing the hell out of this song and it has a really really flashy chorus that. That's immediate. Like you know you know the line. I'd rather be dry but at least I'm alive rain on me just after one. Listen so I think everything really works on the song I think you know. It's it's interesting how you know the song feels like it's an event record and that's getting harder and harder to do these days just because everyone seemingly collaborates with everyone else chasing. Why does it seem like this is really a pop culture moment or am I just crazy and I live in pop music bubble? And maybe I just like Doggone Arianna pop music in general or am I seen it the wrong way or like. How do you feel about this? Do you also feel. This isn't of record. Yeah it does feel like that. I think first of all the fact that they've never collaborated before second of all the fact that as you pointed out Gaga doesn't really have that many collaborations. It's Kinda like Tony Bennett. And Bradley Cooper and then beyond safer for telephone and video phone but you know we. We updated The list of Lady Gaga as best collaborations ever. There really aren't that many and it just in terms of you know outside of the star is born and and her with Tony there. Aren't that many huge team ups on her records. So I think that that rarity and honestly I think that it's an event record because everybody in this trying global time is looking for some kind of fun. Escapist dance pop and they deliver that really. Well I think both artists artists are just complete experts at that and you know to hear them. Pull it off this successfully like I said this is kind of like a one. Listen record where you immediately get. What's going on you wash video? They're having a total blast with the choreography. I just think you know it's it's a perfect time kind of event single as you describe it. I I I totally understand why there are so many people who are talking about this incessantly and listening to it and it could have a big debut next week. Yeah I guess I was trying to think of who else lady Gaga collaborated with. I guess you count Kobe donnas on just dance. Course I mean but it's not I can't really think of that many. Yeah I mean born this way. Her alborn has zero collaborations Joanne I think has one cl she made with Mark Ronson and and a couple of other people but Joanne has one collaboration like this. She just she. Does these big projects with like. I said like Tony. Bennett is obviously a collaborative album. And then the star is born soundtrack with Bradley Cooper all over it but she doesn't really have that many like she doesn't function in the same way as a pop star who has like a big album and we'll have like four or five songs with with collaborative artists. She just doesn't do that that often. You have a chromatic. A is going to be that album. She has not only to retract. But there's also I think a black pink track. Isn't Elton John Wrong? Yeah so it's it's a little bit of a new look for her. I mean you could go back to art. Pop had had a couple in terms of the jewels and drugs. And do you do what you want? But and obviously the fame had that song with Flo Rider who could forget that starstruck of course But yeah it just. It hasn't been her for a while so I'm I'm sort of excited that she's doing this though. You know it's it's interesting how you know Gaga hasn't a ton of collaborations and on the other hand Arianna has made a number of collaborations with other folks including some people that she repeatedly collaborates with like Nicki Menaj. I feel like there's like three different songs. They worked together on. There could be more But there's something there's just something about the combination here of Gaga and Arianna together. So I'm what I was trying to think like. Why are another right artists in this scenario rain on me feel like it's more of an event record than others setting aside so so you know obviously addressing the fact that Gaga infrequently collaborates even though Arianna does collaborate with people? I mean she just had a number one with Justin Bieber week ago. So I think it's I think we can look at it by saying Arianna is probably the zenith of her popularity so far You know she's coming off of two huge albums. Multiple number one singles A huge tour. She's at the height of her powers. Gaga herself has actually transitioned to a new plane of popularity. She's now an academy award winner that has proven her popularity in film and TV as an actress beyond music and stage performances and really Gaga could have done anything she wanted after a star is born. And it's number one soundtrack and it's number one hot one hundred hit and Oscar winning single shallow. And she's and she's choosing to make a return to her dance pop roots with chromatic Or at least what. We've heard so far with stupid love and rain on me. So I think it's a combination of Gaga. Doing a dance pop return which is always newsworthy. Like I return to your roots. How God is now on a different level of stardom now post a star is born post. Oscar how Arianna is at the height of her pop power and the fact that the song itself in video is like a stomping piece of dance. Pompton gets a lot of eyeballs and ears to listen to it. Am I crazy? Am I on the right path? Here Jason I think I think you're you're spot on and I wrote about this after stupid. Love debuted in the top ten. How unlikely this return to dance. Pop was for for Lady Gaga seemingly. You think about her last big dance album which was art pop and her most divisive album and she really kind of had to go in into the musical wilderness. A little bit and she she made cheek to cheek with Tony Bennett. She made Joanne which was much more rooted in country. She made a star is born so you know she did not have to return to the sound that made her famous a decade ago. She's evolved so much since then so it was you know you imagine if if stupid love it. Come out or rain on me. Had come out and it just didn't sound that great. It would be like well. She's trying to recapture her glory days and it doesn't sound right and people would sort of shrug it off but but fortunately the the music and the vision are just completely dead on and I love both songs. I heard when stupid love came out. I just loved it and the same with rain on me. I I've I've never really been this excited to hear a full Lady Gaga. But it just seems like her vision is so uncompromising that. I I think it's going to be a great piece of work now. Look we've only heard two songs but I'm pumped. I'm honestly like really excited about this album. Me To You know I was also thinking aside from what I just listed off a second ago as I think. More acce- I love contemplating stuff like that. Because I love thinking about you. Know why is it that certain collaborations and duets kind of breakthrough and some other ones? Don't people may not remember that. There was once an Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston duet a million years ago And there was an Aretha Franklin. Elton John Duet a million years ago. But for some reason. Those just didn't work I remember. They were positioned as event records for some reason. It just didn't work and sometimes it's just lightning in a bottle and sometimes it's just like the math adds up and you know I also sometimes I think there is Something to the fact that you have to artists that are kind of on the same level in a way you know if Gaga had a rapper as a featured act on attract. Wouldn't draw the same sort of attention you know even even if it was a huge rapper like even if it was Z. Or something it's still. It's still wouldn't be the same sort of event And I think I think it has something to do with kind of the chemistry. The previous successes and artistry of those specific performers if they are similarly balanced if they have kind of a similar trajectory in some ways And there's that big sort of what if x factor kind of kind of pouring into it And I think rain on me is sort of similar to some other previous big pop. Female duets. Like the boy is mine from Brandy. And Monica or Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey when they did when you believe. Even though that wasn't a huge success it still was kind of a big moment for the two of them because they never worked together Or even like Barbra streisand and Donna. Summer way back in the day on no more tears enough is enough so clearly. My brain has been working overtime about this in the past few days as you can tell Jason absolutely so. Who would you want in in terms of just dream collaborations in the current pop era I'm curious who you would want to see collaborate in terms of just collaborations. That would stop the presses and really grab your attention this funny a few years ago when Barbra streisand speaking of Barbara News leaked out that she was working on duets record. And at the time the scuttle Scuttlebutt was that she was working on record and somehow beyond say was involved ultimately beyond say never ended up on. The album ended up being a her her initial album. That was I think. Partners was her paired up with male singers and the next to album was her with like sort of other other bit duet partners doing Broadway songs. But if you had something like Barbra streisand even though she's claverie with tons of people but if you paired her with another great iconic voice like a Barbara like a beyond say or like Adele. That would be amazing. If Adele Adele collaborated with anyone. That would be huge just because she doesn't so it would be a huge deal and I think that's why certain artists can be very sort of kind of just sit back and be like let me pick and choose who I want to collaborate with and be very strategic about it. I mean heck in my personal world I would love to see Madonna and Gaga. Do something together. Do you know now that they're actually friendly again I don't know if that will ever happen. But you know a boy can dream. I love it. That'd be awesome. So what about what about you Jason? Yeah mine that I thought of were was actually to to artist. Who one is in a band? One wasn't a band. But if you think about vocal duets. There aren't that many wishes. The nineteen seventy is Matt. Healy who who has a couple of songs with burgers on on their new album but in terms of the kind of megawatt age I thought a nine hundred seventy five song with Harry styles. I think that would be awesome like you think about Harry. Styles obviously was in one direction. But if you look at his his first two solo projects. There's hardly any other voices on there and I think that would be really cool. The thing about the nineteen seventy five is for as divisive as they are and I love them. They're critically adored. Some people think they're albums are overlong. Whatever they I think. Matt Healy everybody would admit has a really Incredible voice and vocal range. And I think that just hearing him and Harry go toe to toe on a track. That'd be cool man. That would be awesome. I think that would make a news to maybe. I think we'll probably get a Harry style stevie Nicks collaboration probably before that. I don't know I'm not. I'M NOT GONNA be mad at that either. I mean clearly as you can tell we could talk about this until all the cows come home. It's something it's something I love pontificating about what what's cool is that. We're also I also wanted to shout out a a really exciting collaboration from last week that we haven't touched upon which is the weekend and DOJ cat the in your eyes remix. I mean the weekends. New Album have any featured artists and DOJ cat obviously clearly one of the biggest new stars and music the fact that they've linked up on what I consider a really excellent remix. You know it's it's exciting when this stuff happens now that example if we're talking about if we're trying to catch it back to rain on me. I think that isn't an event record because you have a male and a female voice together and someone who is clearly like a junior blossoming star with someone who is very like a lot more established. It doesn't fit the same mold so it's interesting but it's not like Oh. My God stopped the presses. Do you agree and I I agree with that. I think that considering the amount of excitement around both of those artists right now. I think that you know it's it's a pretty cool. Remix comes at a two weeks after Say so hits number one. I think that the timing and the pairing just musically made a lot of sense and lived up to the hype said negotiating. Jason Okay well we can pick this up for part two next week. I'm kidding maybe not but now it's time for the charts out of the week yet. Though this week in two thousand seventeen one of the biggest collaborations ever on the hot one hundred hit number one as Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin bieber jumped to number one. The song rose from number three to number one on the chart dated may twenty seventh two thousand seventeen and spent a total of sixteen weeks at number one currently as tied for the second most weeks at number one with another collaboration Mariah Carey and Boyz to men's once sweet day and the only song with more weeks at number one ahead of both of those is yet another collaboration. Little GNAWS ACCESS Old Town Road. Featuring Billy Ray. Cyrus with nineteen weeks at number one does fussy toe like Megan. The savage was a hit before it. It's featured artist jumped onto the track to which is completely sung in. Spanish was already number one on billboard's hot Latin songs chart by the time the Bieber enhanced version was released The addition of Bieber with a little bit of English singing from him at the front of the song helped the track crossover to non Latin audiences and ultimately hit number. One on the hot one hundred. Still though it's basically an all-spanish Song The track was a global phenomenon and not only spent sixteen weeks. A number one on the hot one hundred but was also a Also spent a record-breaking fifty six weeks at number one on the hot Latin songs chart the track would later win multiple billboard music awards including hot one hundred song of the year and Garner a trio of Grammy Award nominations including record of the year and Song of the year. So there you have it this week in two thousand seventeen despacito hit number one on hot one hundred. There's seed this is how we do it down in Puerto Rico. I just want to hear you screaming though already Jason. We've reached the end of our big shoe Any partying words. I don't really have anything. I'm excited to see where rain on me. Debuted on the hot one hundred so we'll pick it up next week all right. So what song should we go out on? You know. I was thinking about how much I love another lady Gaga collaboration with a an a list? Female singer her do what you want with. Christine. Aguilera ochre fall. You're GonNa say something else surprise me. No that's a good one all right so you guys next time.

GonNa give you some great resources on salary and negotiating a salary so that's coming up a little bit later in the program as well eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven the number ever. Let's start it off with Dan on the line in Saint Louis Missouri Dan. You're on the Ken Coleman. Show I can after the question. I have a brief comment example. If you have time to hear your stuff at work but my question is how can I help facilitate my kids to to have I mean the the horizons wide open for them. How can they begin to see different things to figure out then how to apply the proximity principle to get. They don't even know what they WANNA do yet. They don't know what they like and that sort of thing well. How old are they range from five years to almost eighteen well GimMe Gimme the exact ages so that I can specifically address. I got five year old sixteen year old and seventeen year old okay so the sixteen and seventeen year old do absolutely have some some of the things that they enjoy doing. Is it GonNa be career clear right now could be. I know it sixteen I was and so I think it's very possible so what you WanNa do is is you want to your deer focuses less about about coming up with the answer for them because I think that's what dads and moms we tend to do so it's your focus is not coming up with it and helping open them. Get the answer. No no what you want to do is began to create the conversations where they see how to explore their feelings and what kind of tugs at their heart. What stories do they share with their friends friends. you know so if they're on social media what are the stories that kind of move their heart meaning that excites them or they feel badly are there causes that you've already begun and see where they they volunteer their time Oregon. They talk about these things. A lot are their subjects in school that they it not only do well in that would be talent and strength but they actually love the topic they they engage in it are their hobbies hobbies that you know aren't necessarily just a sport type of recreational hobby but there might be something deeper there so you and your wife you're kind of observing patterns. You're looking for clues on things that have given them a little bit of juice when they think about it and when they engage engage in it so that's you're noticing things and then you're more importantly you're you're taking what you've noticed all these years and continue to notice and then you're just having conversations. Don't don't make the conversations heavy. Don't sit the sixteen and seventeen year old daughter go. Hey we need to start talking about finding out your passion. Now you WANNA come at it almost from the back door not the front door and so what I mean by that. Is You know get them excited. Hey what are you love to do. There's something you've been thinking about. Ah You'd like to learn or do and you haven't shared with because your mom and I we we really want to fuel that and we want you to know that so important for you to constantly have your head on a swivel looking for things that make your heart excited things that you're really good at and things that you might be really interested in doing ruined because there's there could be tremendous purpose in that and then leave. It open ended that to see what they say. Are you tracking with what I'm saying. Yeah Yeah Yeah you see how low key that is right but I would also tell you one thing you would you and your wife need to do. Is You need to start your own process just by going what do we see see and by the way if you don't have a lot of answers today. Why don't you just do nothing but observe. Get your antenna up for thirty to sixty days and see so you see all the while having that conversation with them and when you get one on one time with them go hey. What are you excited about. What any extracurricular curricular things you WanNa do let them know that there are some possibilities for you to fund their exploration and so what we want is parents and this is for Dan but it's for the rest of the parents. There is a societal pressure that says by the time you reach. Dan's kids aged sixteen Eckstein in seventeen year old that it's all about you figure out what you might. WanNa do so you can get in the right college and get the right major so you can get to save job and and all of a sudden it squashes the wonder out of their brain. What are you talking about Ken. Every person on the planet comes into this world hardwired to be a wonder W. O. N. D. E. R. E. R. Wonder Wonder this is what we come into. This world hard wild to heart this whole we are wonderers. Toddlers are asking hundreds of questions a day why to to be obnoxious and drive parents crazy even though it feels that way no they're just trying to get to the bottom of it so what happens is we go from. Toddler Lorraine and into elementary and we still got all that wonder and they still run down on Christmas morning Joe at six seven eight and they just cannot wait to tear open the presents. That's wonder I wonder what's under the wrapping paper. That's wonder here's another example table of wonder in this tender pure unadulterated curiosity. What do you want to be when you grow grow up and they say something and we think it's so cute and usually it's cute because it sounds kind of random doesn't always have a whole lot of context to it and it's largely based on something that they've seen recently that. I thought was kind of cool or fascinating if we just break it down you want to be a taxi driver. Why do you want to be a taxi driver because you you probably were with you recently and saw a cool looking cab who news I WANNA be a cowboy. WanNa be a police officer. Why won't we saw police officer. Phthalic pretty powerful and respectful who knows who knows why kids say what they say but they say without any kind of qualification they just go. I I want to be that and then it changes the next day because they see something else now back to the timeline as they get into middle school. We'll cultural pressures again start to start to happen and they've been in a school system since kindergarten that is taught them how l. took answer a question. Go Study and plug in the answers the school system in our Western world is he's not teaching kids how to find their own way or not teaching them how to be curious where teaching them how to be be answered givers so we're creating answer givers test takers. Were not creating path finders. They're not being taught exploration and curiosity. There really aren't and they'll send me any nasty emails because you're not going to be able to prove to me that even the the stuff they're learning in math and science is all about true critical thinking and problem solving. There's a touch of that but at the end of the day the way it's being taught and the focus on how it's being taught is for the purposes of regurgitating it. Here's my point point every science class in America except for a few really creative schools. I'll throw that out. There were preparing these kids with information that is supposed to be helping them with problem problem solving invaluable information on what we're doing. We're not asking the do anything with it. We just want them to recite it back to us so the teacher can go okay good. I did a good job. The information is in their brain for now as opposed to. Let's teach the fundamentals behind Algebra uh-huh and now here's what we're GONNA do. We're GONNA give you a machine. Go fix it and your entire grade for the semester is is how solve a real problem now. I'm GonNa tell you right now and I said that my producer Joe who is a admitted gearhead Joe. I want you to call me out for a second. We have a long relationship. I trust you know you love me in my right about the if we really wanted to teach the value and actually actually give some field knowledge and practical knowledge behind math it would be here's a real world problem that what we just taught you for the last two or three weeks can come in handy. Go solve that it changed a lot in old by the way the school administrators ministers would have to stand up and take notice that if Ken Coleman Jr.. That's me was in that class. He wouldn't understand any of the stuff up for the first six weeks and then when given a machine to solve he would know how to do it and they'd go. Oh probably shouldn't have ken in in this class. He does not have what it takes to solve these kind of problems. Do you know Oh why we would know that while they were monitoring me. They would see how hopeless I was because I don't have the talent to do it when they weren't looking team Joe on the guy. That's cutting a deal to get the other guy in the class who knows how to do it to fix it and I get him a little bit of money cutting the deal. So what does that mean about me me that I'm dishonest. No it means I the guy that's GonNa. Pay Somebody else to do with the real world anyway. Why are you making me do this. Sometimes I get fired up now back to the timeline. I've not done yet now. Here's the deal so we pound the curiosity that of our kids and by the time they're in middle school we know from research from on the University of Michigan. They're asking two to three questions a day. Now you juxtapose that with the fact that when they're toddlers they're asking hundreds of questions a day and we are beating the curiosity out of them like we're beating the dust out of a rug now they get into high school just like Dan and his kids and good meaning. MOMS and dads like me like Dan like you. We feel cultural pressure that says if Johnny or Susie don't go to college everybody's. He's GonNa think they're a loser and everybody's GonNa think that were bad parents. Oh candidate. You just say that yes because that's what's been sold to us us that a college. Degree is the only right of passage to success. Let me say again loudly and clearly that is a bunch of crap is college necessary search for some yes. Is it necessary for all no so we've been sold this and so- parental pressure pressure because of the cultural pressure is pushing these kids to go to college. They can't afford get a degree that they don't want or need and then they come out of school and then my friend in Anthony. O.`Neil is trying to rescue as many people as possible to say. You don't have to go into debt to go to college. If if you need to go to college you can't go to college and so that's why I wrote the debt. Free degrees coming up next week. It's going to be awesome. Go get it. Daveramsey DOT COM ANTHONY DOT COM. It's great but we we have a student loan crisis in America because you parents have been duped and peer pressured into allowing in your kid be saddled with unimaginable debt for a degree that can't even use and don't even want to use and they'll spend the better part of ten Tin Fifteen sometimes twenty years dealing with that the very people who want their kids to get ahead actually arche behind the APL. Is anybody else understand how stupid that is when your kid could go into the trades right out of high school and be making great money and invest in a 401k at nineteen and be a net worth worth millionaire in their thirties. Oh by the way doing something they love and creating jobs come on America how I'M NOT GONNA. Stop on this so you just going to have to get used to it. The parents starts with you with Dan. I'll say this Kudos to Dan because it takes the courage for a guy like Dan to say. I know this make sense. I'm GONNA work on this of my kids and we're GONNA figure this out and I'm going to steer steer my kids the way they should go not the way I want them to go. Oh now I'm jumping on toes all right eight eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven coming up new content for me about how to negotiate a salary plus. We'll get to your calls.

You're on the Ken Coleman. Joe Can't how he's got Gerd. I I have a job. I'm waiting for an offer to come in. and I'm not one hundred percent sure I should take it i. I guess I can give you a little history on what I've done. I started listening to Daveramsey Ramsey allow ago and started working overtime and stuff to get your shovel starting my own business the place. I was working working at. I didn't think they were compensating me fairly so what they said and voted with my feet last I explored a few options I had some woodworking cabinet making which was a passion of mine. turned out to not base something. I wanted to all the time so back into the same industry. got another job. it was telling me. Marceau I did advance on that and I however get a little frustrated with some of the environment I'm working with. It doesn't seem to just be one company. this one that definitely has a worst riffs toxic environment okay so. I started looking for product manager positions and other industries and after several interviews I I got away with a person with more relevant experiences. uh-huh wasn't able to transfer tonight. I've got one in the same industry seems to be a lot better company. Okay so what's your question. You've got a job offer in what industry it's still structural still okay and so you got a job offer right now in the a structural steel industry as a project manager yes okay and so what's for me so the the biggest downfall taller that job is that's why the commute out commute. Oh my gosh each way yeah. I wouldn't do that that I wouldn't do that for a second. I don't understand why in the world you would do that. I mean if you're GONNA if if it's that great gig and you really want to do it go move to Modesto. I mean move closer. Wherever that is you know I just doing an hour and a half? Is that one way or round trip. That's one way oh my Gosh Scott got. No life is too short to drive three hours. When there's when there's in what's interesting to me is I don't seem to get this is a sweet spot job anyway my right well? I I do enjoy the project management side of IT and they've got more staff there to help so I'm not so okay at the current place. It's a smaller company. You get stuck doing other menial tasks. Okay well is as your question for me is your question. Should you do it. Is that what you're saying. Should you take yeah are you you willing to move closer to that like get within at least thirty minutes so the only problem with moving well. My wife loves and two two is houses. Get very expensive in the bear I so the answer's no right correct. How Scott do you think that you're going to be able to survive I've driving three hours a day to work to and from tolls no. It's not ideal driving up but what bothers me. It's the family the exactly what I know. That was my point. I mean you're GONNA die a slow death. The answer is no no because you can find something similar where you work. I mean you're there are several things you've done before the really enjoy it seems like as I hear your work history that I hear that it's about environment and so having been in a couple of bad environments you should now have some real experience. Maybe even list of things that you need to look for into no. Hey I'm going to do some research ahead at a time before I apply for another company. I'M GONNA I'm GONNA find somebody. That knows somebody that works those companies and I'm going to ask them to find out for for me. What's the culture like they're not tell you something right now. If you're looking to find out the culture of a company this is one of the easiest things in the world to find out and I'll tell you why people at company. XYZ will tell anybody what the culture's like. If it's great they're going to be bragging on it. They're going to be so excited to tell you if it's terrible. They're GONNA be so excited to just dump on their own company because they got all this built of frustration so I love when someone goes Ken. How do I figure out if if a company is going to Greek culture ask somebody if you don't know anybody that works directly. Ask somebody who knows somebody if you've got a friend we know somebody over there. Trust me hey. Would you text them. Email them say hey I got a I got a friend who wants to WHO's interested in potentially working over. There wants to know what the culture's like. Nelly is going to be a very clear response and in Walla Matt. I'll just teach on this a little bit. you're either. GonNa get. It's amazing. It's awful or you might get an inbetween and what do you do with the in between answer. Oh Oh I don't mean I don't know I've never really thought about it and I mean. I guess it's okay. That's not a great culture either so if it's a response put that one in the negative category with the does places awful. I can't wait to get out of here right so that's very easy. Scott for you to find out. You need to draw circle around is this is where I like the old fashioned maps you know put it out on the table a red marker out and draw circle circle round radius that this is about all. I'm willing to drive to and from and we're looking there eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven to Pittsburgh we go jason is on the line Jason. You're on the Ken Coleman show. I Ken Hi Jason Good to talk to you. How can I help uh-huh I'm kind of in his struggle here for the last five or six months. It's been a journey but I just I'm just new to your show but before that I've been applying online every for every position that basically I was interested in in the field that I wanted to go Atlanta. I'm I'm not particularly happy with John j-o-h-n doing right now. It's the culture and what's what's the struggle with me. Is I get an interview and it seems like I get one. I get to and at the end of the day I don't end up playing in the position and like I said it's hasn't been been easy. It's been six six months now. I just I don't know what I'm doing wrong in the interview process or or if I should dig in a new direction with with your with your resume and yes i. I don't know what my struggle is well. That's challenging for me because if you don't have any feedback as to why you're not doing well in the interview I'm somewhat limited to what I know to be the right way to go about this so we'll focus on that a- and so when you're applying online how often are you applying and then actually getting an interview mcquaid played honest probably apply to jobs a day and how many interviews I've probably got five or six in the last six months yeah and how many of you apply to give me a rough number. I'd say yeah so I'd say really bad. Percentage is is an adjacent her sure okay so let's start with what you're doing wrong. You're applying online. You're just you're just sending in your resume and not connection at all. I'm guessing right. You don't know anybody in these companies. Who are out there vouching for you and supporting I mean are you using the proximity. How many principal now that I've listened to your show in the last like I found it. The last month and it's been addicting to me been starting to do I've been starting to use is that what does that mean starting to use it either. You're using Mike techniques or you're not so. What does I am using your. I started when I listened all from your show. Tell me what you know so. Tell me what you've done. What's the last thing you did. The last thing I did was I react my whole resume good weekend that reached out online through facebook and other social communities that I kind of knew an acquaintance and I asked him if he can put a good word in I was applying for this production unit manager Job Yup and I just haven't heard any you back from that yet. Well wait a sec that person say yes. I'll put in a good work aided. Did you acquaintance yeah. Did you follow up to say. Did you put the word in no say so. We don't even know if he put the worden so I love that. You're that you're putting your toe in the water that you. I use my resume guy. That's GONNA make you stand out but again my resume guide and all of the information with free can cullman dot com will not work if view do not use your web of connections. What you have got to do is go to ten times what you just described? You can't just reach out to somebody on facebook and ask. I'M GONNA do use solid. You've got to follow up with them. Did you do me the solid and I'm going to resume the same day that you walk it in so when you walk my resume in to the to the person that's hiring. I'm going to submit this is coordinated thing here and then I get outside of facebook. Please Lincoln and those are all great but get on the phone with somebody and have a human connection and go. Are you willing to do this. The other thing is do your own research research. What companies do you WanNa work at now. How many people do you know that know somebody that worked there. You gotTA listen. This is like good old-fashioned. Pencil to paper and figure it out. Oh this is turning over rocks to find people that know people that work there people that will say yes. We have a good friend. I'm willing to endorse you Jason and on my resume guide at the top you do that now. Here's what happens when you start to to try to find these people. It's not always going to work perfectly but the more you to do this. The more you figure out who else you know and you begin to find these connections but this is not a silver bullet fire fire one shot and it works. It doesn't happen that way most of the time and so I'm going to give you a cop well. He's got the book. Let's make sure he does in fact have the book. The web of connections chapter is really huge. It's almost walks you through not just the method but tells you exactly how how to use it and and so you've just gotta stay with us. I I can't add any giant nugget of wisdom here that you've yet to think about it. This is just you're not doing it the right way and so think about this Jason. I'm not just looking for acquaintance on facebook book. I'm looking for people I do life with. Do they know somebody that works at these companies. who were my coins though somebody so you should be going from a mindset of I only we know about one hundred and fifty people to. I have access to thousands of people in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. That has to be the mindset because when you you see that you're not gonNa take no for an answer and you keep going you. Keep going you keep going. You keep going so now what I can tell you is. If you use my how to win the interview guide I think that'll get. Are you a little bit further along interview process because you're prepared. You're confident of prepare. person is a confident person so when the nerves and anxiety takes over you prepare and you've got something to say when it's your turn say asking questions the right way in an interview but you've got to get to a point that when you go into interviews they've already heard so much much good about you. There essentially only seen if you're gonNA just knock yourself out of the competition not improve not not not not prove yourself. They already go well. We're hearing really good things. Let's just make sure this is all true and so that's what has to happen and if you do it that way in a work let's go to Ontario Canada. where Sarah is on the line Sarah on the Ken Coleman Show Hi Ken Hi Sarah but wonderful to talk to you today well. It's Nice I am a stay at home mom right now and educator but sometimes I I'm.

That's not RECCO cassock singing Greco casick Cassock casick basic ha what have you and that actually is Rick o'casey accident but I mean the point is that it's the cars and we're feeling I really loved. I loved loved loved the cars J. growing up. I don't know why I'm telling you the truth. Is We love the cars. We were so like that was of gang gang vocal my best friend's girlfriend that was for us. It merged a lot of things you had sent heavy well. What I love is that they were for us. They were the choice of ban that we liked back when we were fourteen avid daughter who's fourteen now like we went to like the eighth grade when we it went away for youth group like you know you go for a weekend another city to meet other kids in. It's like that's what we brought to the table. where the cars now they were a classic rock considered? They were played on classwork station. We were there were kids who are listening to the Smiths and the cure and Azimi till they're listening to the cars which okay but the point is that upon further review with distance and time you look back and you say the car worth new wave could they were postponed new wave really quite high. I you went and looked and you. You inspired me to go back and look at there was like a full. Actually I saw a full concert that they did called. I'd like college rock back in like seventy nine and they just looked so fricking cool and they sounded so good if this ban came out today if they came onto Dan play their music. It'd be the new strokes may be bigger this huge radical so you got a great sad said that he has is gone a tribute to him. We're tribute to many many great artists have died in the last little bit of asked we are very we are saddened by the loss we we honor music on this show. Is You know we do a music episode twice do one at the end of the year with our boys. It's GonNa be fun but also we have a great show today Greg m singer who is the host of MLB tonight. He does such a good job with Harold Reynolds and Dan Please Second Joe Girardi and I'm a bit he pedro he kinda run. He's the ringleader ringleader what I love about him. Though is that he is also a baseball expert like there's something in him. He's not just a host. No He's not just a guy who sends the ball around the questions. He asks the way he you can tell the way. He prepares for each show. It's why I truly love getting the sports highlights from. I'm the sports channel. We've said this all the time that the specialization of it is almost like basically Ashton of baseball. We'll talk about that with him so greg m singer and then later on the show Matt McConnell conor. Hey has embedded himself first of all he's a professor now at ut. Austin which why didn't that happen sooner but I guess in the Acting Department. We're GONNA find out about that and just many other things that Matt is doing us. I'm walking around the Texas University Texas sidelines wearing a shirt that I'm just going to say out. Loud didn't fit him. Doc jerked infant talk about staying in the world of football and we'll talk about because effect last week. We talked about the US men's basketball team same this week we Kinda the truth that but we have to it played itself out in a weird way but Antonio Brown. Here's a crazy thing we went on. NPR last week here in Los Angeles where we often talk sports and on the show Malam brand was asking us. We were doing it live in this was like twelve forty five Friday. She was asking us about Antonio and we said the thing that was weird is to us was that the Patriots who had picked up Antonio Brown after he was released by the the raiders the Patriots stood by him even though they knew there were these allegations of sexual assault potential rape I mean these are heavy allegations. Gatien's that may be as an organization. You'd want to step back and say let's see how this thing plays out before we stand by this even though we agreed to pay him ten million dollars and and we said look also you're the Patriots while I mean you know why Robert Kraft why said be Robert. Kraft picked up Antonio Brown because he's a fan of happy endings shirt but I think that Robert Kraft you know in that organization you don't need Antonio Brown yeah first of all like Randy and I could be possession receivers on the Patriots four yard dink and dumps all the way down. Tom Brady has made a career out of that out of plucking obscure white guys out of you know wherever they're from and making them superstars so yeah by the way the chiefs are really good patriots. You're going to have to go through them like you did last year potentially play win a playoff game on the road like you did last year or maybe they've got to go through foxborough. I don't know but those are the two teams are going to be standing at the end of the year so we're not saying they couldn't use Antonio Brown. They didn't necessarily need him. No so they call those countries that was at twelve forty five. We said on the radio when we got in our car that we couldn't understand why they were standing with them. We get in our cars eleven minutes later and both of our phones light up and they sailor that said the Patriots Release Antonio Antonio Brown and I said it was a full release coordinator Robert Kraft Foley's you know and so we so then he spiraled out of control he's fine. He's starts tweeting about big band and rape allegations for big band he starts tweeting about Robert Kraft and all the things he's involved in and it basically ensuring during hill never in this league and you'll never get his money. I mean you're the type guy that's gonNA throw people under the bus that way you asked yourself. He's so good. He literally was the best wide receiver I had them. In fantasy football two years ago. He almost helped me win the whole league because every even though he was the guy everybody was keying on. You've got to stop this guy. He would still get it is yards. He would still get his point. He reminds me of like guys like like like Lino messy a little bit yeah. He's little. He's not a big guy and I say to myself every time I'm like. Why can't people mark messy. Why can't they keep messy from scoring. Just put two guys on messy all game and you'll shut him down but he's so good. He's so fast. He has a burst doesn't matter how big is five ten one eighty five so he found five ten is probably pushing. It's probably like five nine our size one eighty five it baffles the mind that this guy is that dominant in a League of giants Severe Sixth Round Downdraft Pick pick one hundred ninety five at a central Michigan University in the Mac and he zebedee wrong and becomes this Greyer but the problem is he's not right the head. Something is wrong aid hitting. Maybe it's too many hits who make an excuse them just trying to understand why he is the way he doesn't see mentally stable and he definitely definitely will not work in the NFL. If feels like the type of behavior that someone who was a five star blue chip recruit from the time they were in seventh grade and people people have been you know fluff in that guy off from all the way from high school into college then you were a college star then you were in the in the lottery of is being picked at the top of the that strike behaving like right not not the behavior of you look at Tom. Brady on the Patriots. He was a six round. Pick Tom Brady. He was picked near the end in the six and you get the feeling that Tom Brady still feels like he's got work to do and get the feeling that he still feels like he's got an image to uphold and he's got to do something if he can to make sure that he represents football and at least the Patriots in a good way Antonio Brown does not give it the rail off the rail thrills. We talk to people who were in who were in the raiders camping. Naylor like raiders people there'd be meetings and people wouldn't even know where he was so that that is how crazy he is. He's so crazy that this this the best most talented receiver in the league will not work again nope. That's how crazy he is. The the crazy outweighs the good yeah. That's he literally. If you WANNA know how crazy and how much of cancer he is you say to yourself if he were if you you were any worse he'd be gone long ago but that this is how good Antonio Brown is he so good that he so good that he stayed around this long or he so bad at that. He's so good steelers. The steelers probably kept so much stuff that they didn't want to let and they're going to let it out now after he's called everybody they're going to let it out ever. GonNa let everything you're going to find out stuff about Antonio Brown and he's just GonNa fade into security who would take chancellor. NFL The XFL made it or the WWe maybe or celebrity boxing with the Bagel guy if he takes on the Bagel Guy I've screech drops out and we'll talk about this later in the show. If screech drops out Lenny Dykstra already dropped out excretes drops out and someone needs to fight the Bagel guy might be Antonio Brown it might but the truth is he's done and you know what I'm okay with that me too two. I'm a we don't need you. Antonio football need you if you're going to sexually harass a woman and if these allegations are salt assault of these allegations are true and they seem like they they might be true a lot of smoke. Now we have to get it proved improved out right but like the way you're behaving your support your supporting the notion that these things are true right near the Tiber sending texts to other women that came forward that are threatening. That's what really push the Patriots over the edge yeah. I'm like you will never play again and shame on any the NFL team that decides to try and pick him up sky this guy's had his you always give a guy second chance always give a woman a second chance but if you burn that second an and third and fourth and fifth year Dun Dun Dun good luck to you got a lot.

MLB tonight regularly and he's fantastic as the anchor of that show whoever's on with him greg amp singer did welcome to the show how you doing man. Oh Randy Jason Good to be with you guys. I I'm really stoked okay. I've heard a lot about your broadcast and it. I haven't seen it fits. My style totally totally fits your style which is a great style it. It is one of the reasons why what we said because we're huge sports fans in of the Individual Sports. I prefer to get the information about baseball from the MLB. We'll be network. I prefer to get my basketball from the NBA network why because they focus on hiring people who know what they're talking about who have fun as they're doing. It and you are the the perfect example of that you really you great job of it. Thanks guys look my my number. One priority real is to make the two guys in my left. I feel like they're the stars of the show. I'm not kidding you. Watch me you know I it. It looks like I'm getting under Harold. Reynolds Skins and I know there's more in the tank. It looks like I am am battling. Pedro Martinez is because I know he's really passionate about something. They'll make for good television. I'm Kinda like what Jerry Springer is on on his show. You know he's kind of like trying to get people to fight right not always trying to get people to laugh too but really I really want this show to be entertaining -taining so my opinion get injected because I want to show to be different than all the other broadcast that you see on TV. You're like Maury Povich without the Manila envelope without the paternity test results but you know real quick yeah friends with his you know who's the director of. Shell is. His nephew is Andrea. I Andrew Povich. I was hanging out with in today. I don't WanNA sound really Oh. That's a crazy crazy name dry Andrew Povich Andrew Povich and I they are members of the same country clubs were chatting about life and he was telling me that Mori Maury Povich is a is a two or three handicap golfer his early eighties did out. Are you kidding. Maury Povich almost scratch Golfer at eighty two or eighty years old and he's got a full head of Hair Yup. It's just not fair. I I imagining plays golf in a Turtleneck. Is that wrong to assume that he plays does everything in eternally any if if if and I'm I'm sure his son loves hearing the Line Andrew. You are not the Father Oh and then the music comes on and well I do by the way you say you just get under the skin but I disagree. I actually think you know what buttons to push and where to get more information out when we wanted because we as fans are watching this thing and I remember because I shot a little thing for. I directed a little thing this is randy talking at TBS with Pedro Gary Sheffield. They were doing the playoff action there and we shot a little thing where I needed them to to to do something for me and and Jimmy Rollins and those watching games with those guys which I'm sure you watch games with the how illuminating of an experience. It's is that when you're watching games especially. It's coming out of the wire with these guys. That's a great question Randi. Let me tell you my favorite experienced during the world world series. It's not to be in the BALLPARK. I don't watch a single pitch in the stadium not one. I cannot wait to go to the TV cop-out which is behind the stadium. It's basically it's parking lot where a bunch of like trailers yup for all the television networks they set up a makeshift living room and my favorite moments moments working at MLB network are sitting in full suit and make up a makeshift living room next to Peter Gammons Pedro Martinez Dina's John smoltz Harrell rentals allied or fantasy sack up to watch the games like brothers run sitting there yelling at the TV eighty and those conversations end up making the post game show what they are so you're right. It is an experience to me. It's it's I have a mentor are in Saint Louis. I wouldn't be where I am without Randy characters guidance. I intern for your Saint Louis Radio. Everyone knows that and the world series in twenty twenty thirteen came to St Louis and I say how they ready you WANNA tickets. I don't know what to ask me. 'cause you know what I WANNA do. Can you just I wanNA. I WANNA go in that television. Listen trailer. You talk about when you're sitting next. All those guys and I go yeah I can make that happens you know he sat with me in that in that room and watched all those guys along with me. Yell at each other like brothers. We watch this. This world series game is it's the relationship I have with these guys that comes on and tells us why I mainly go and get more info from and because we we care about each other. I such a high level. You respect is never ending well. We're saying Louis guys you grew up in Saint Louis and so I mean we we know Randi character. Of course I mean again. We're like that is the cardinals are a team and and it's let's. Let's focus on that national league central. Are Let's talk about I have. We seen a run like the brewers run post. Yelich just looked it up sixteen of eighteen and they're going to win today so seventeen of have ninety s crazy look what is being overlooked it. The decision office made to go get to pitchers and no one's talking about MHM. Jordan lyles is has been their best pitcher since the trade deadline and no one thought they were acquiring cranky when it got Jordan lyles but he's been better than that cranky drew pomeranz was acquired to be a weapon out of the bullpen and this is a guy the Boston red sox. We're GonNa let sit in the bullpen and Nathan evolve. He was GonNa Pitch Forty three innings if he had to in the world Syria because they didn't want to get the ball to drew pomeranz the fact that these two guys who performance such a high level is being overlooked. Why because the lineup up like today I mean they're scoring eight runs. The reds and the lineup is so dynamic without criticism that I- ah guys the only comparison in my head would be let's say Michael Jordan is lost for the season and the Bulls went through averaging one hundred hundred ten points a game to one hundred and thirty one after he left it just doesn't make any sense that they're playing at this level but sometimes the supporting cast realizes they have to step up to another spoken the ladder they have to be a more impactful role player and clearly. That's what's happening right now. This team is incredible and do you think about where they are how they're getting hot at this moment. If I'm a team like the dodgers you know obviously they're gonNA play you know. Let's say the cardinals managed to hang on with the dodgers face the brewers in the first round uh-huh. I would be nervous about that now now. I'll respectfully disagree breather Jason. Because I'm going to guess if wildcard game is the Washington nationals against the Milwaukee brewers will say the cardinals hold on to win. The central by the way is not gas not set in stone like there. Oh No not at all not at all. I mean the brewers keep winning. Cardinals lose another one. This is not looking like anything but a nail biter but that I will say this when it comes to what the Washington nationals can roll out in a series in terms of pitching matchups yes their bullpen is the worst in the National League totally get that but even with the brewers pleasant surprise on the mound that they've had you're not in fear of anyone compost time especially with the bats the dodgers have they would prefer I face the brewers any day of the week over assures her Strasbourg Patrick Corbin even Anibal Sanchez in the second half has been lights out so I trust me they they come on. Let's bring Woodrow Fin. Bring on Van Leer lyles bring on Davies and let's face bellinger and and see her you know Turner is GonNa. Come back in the entire. CAST characters is going to be tough stop. They will be tough to stop you. There is something to be said for playing games with your back against the wall all all the way up to the end of the year whereas the dodgers have been winning but they've been on crews. They've been they've been far and away thirty games over five hundred since I can't even remember I mean so when the pre I'm saying that pressure to win those games. It feels like the the walk. He's been playing play. When Braun hit the Grand Slam to beat the cardinals in Saint Louis I said for the cardinals cardinals fan. I was like Oh this is not good and you said for brewers okay. They've got some magic there now playing every game as their back against the wall that that I feel like it was like the royals in two thousand fifteen. Do you know what I'm saying. Oh absolutely yeah I mean I the way I look at it and and I I knew this is going to be an interesting tale the the Milwaukee brewers we look at all the potential playoff teams who had the EU schedule it was by far the brewers respect br feel themselves. After after they went to Miami they swept the morals in four straight games that was right before they went to Saint Louis. The cardinals blew him out ten nothing and and then they came back and beat the cardinals last two games since then we're talking padres pirates reds then they're going to end the year in Colorado so a bunch of teams that are reading deer hunting magazines right now the club last thing they're carrying about it so I I think the schedule lined lined up perfectly for the Milwaukee brewers. That's part of what you're watching so. Let's talk about the American League because I mean is you know everybody's kind of saying. Hey it's probably gonna be the Yankees and the Houston in the in the championship series there but I would not wanna play the Oakland Glenn as the Oakland A.'s and the Tampa Bay rays are fighting for two things their playoff lives and who can have a lower payroll going. I it's it's just a maze. It's the two moneyball teams it's insane. I love the Oakland. A.'s Love the Oakland. Here's why they're they're different than they were at the deadline. They're different team. Homer Bailey's overlooked weapon. No one thought homer Bailey's pitch like those ninety five again yeah he's been. He's he's been electric so let's throw him the names on the mound that they didn't have right not even not including guy pitching nine. Frankie Montage of served navy game suspension it could be the postseason but he's he's pitching tonight helping them get to the postseason which I don't think is fair but Sean Mugniyah on raise back. He's he'll be the guy that starts wildcard. He's awesome. The guy's insane might huge lefty crazy arm slot. You can't hit a slider so you get your best starting pitcher. No offense Mike Fires. You're starting pitching. That's right then you get to weapons that eventually will be starters but now they're going to be weapons of the pen. Hey Lazardo who's their top pitching prospect kids nasty. I mean he's got movement. Uh of Johan Santana with ninety seven ninety eight miles an hour attached to it. I mean that's how great this kid is and then you get. Aj puck who had six seven with a wingspan expand. It looks like seven seven. I swear to God that guy can scratch his ankle standing straight up and he's he's a monster. Does ninety nine miles an hour so that left-hander winter is in your bullpen and then the number one reliever in baseball this year my opinion out Blake training as a kid overuse last year as well now. It's Liam Hendriks we. We talked about the Oakland A.'s all time ago. this team doesn't have any pitching. That's not the case this year. This is the team's got rested arrested healed pitching. That's bursting at the seems to make names for themselves in terms of rookies and you're going to see them be in my opinion a Cinderella world serious contender. I totally agree with what you're selling ready. I think that they could be the team that if it's not the astros is not the Yankees not the twins that are going to go to the world series not the Indians that could go to the world series now the rains that could go to the world series. I think the Oakland A.'s would be the third team in the power rankings only American league side of the bracket. I think we're rolling into the playoffs but you just rattled off by the way I could see any of those teams like if the twins get hot. The twins are unbelievable. Fans in everyone of those cities have hope as we roll into these Atlanta fans finally have hope after all these years yeah I mean. Let's so so let's talk about because I want to talk about. Are you talking about pitching cy young especially especially specifically in the National League. I mean this is crazy. The idea that Jacob degrom will probably win the CY young. I think most people agree see that just by the it even though Jack clarity has pitched out of his mind in the second half of this year Jacob degrom will win and potentially win two CY youngs winning a collective under twenty games is that that's my that's mind blowing. It's the way the game is today. It just is and I used to be on board with the idea of come on you. GotTa Win More Games until I see teams like the New York mets break a record for the most quality starts over a two year span. Dan But a pitcher gives them that they don't win. I mean Jacob degrom. I think is has had a starts where at twenty six starts where he's giving up three runs or less and the last two years that his team didn't win yeah. There seem to win. Yeah I mean that's ridiculous that and no one else close Mexicans or second would like fourteen MHM his popularity amongst his teammates but for some reason when he pitches his teammates go. I don't think we need to score one to yeah. It's the weirdest thing ever ever and I I can't blame. A guy for an individual can't hold back in individual ward for a player who's being being affected by the performance his teammates. He cannot inspire people Lonzo to hit another home run. He can only do what he's capable of doing and that's mowing everybody. Nobody down so I used to be all about wins. I used to be like that. I'm not giving away win at all but when it comes to the CY young the only I mean look at the numbers I mean it's a whip under one two hundred and forty eight strikeouts. I believe one hundred fifty two hits and one hundred ninety seven. That's stupid so yeah I the IRA to five one hundred was going to win but he had four starts stretch for Kinda gave it away when the title but for him to not even come close in terms of strikeouts breakouts his era was going to have to be barely over to and it's too close to grow to give him cy young. I think to grandma's GonNa do it again and so when we saw again again so now when we look in down the road in the future into Graham is done okay. He's got many more years left in his tank but you know you're gonNA look at his win totals and they aren't going to be that impressive like he may they only went one hundred fifty games in his career and are we going to say. We got to consider this guy. We'll see if he stacks up more years like he has in his first few years. Where are we going to say this guy. We gotta look at what he won. In terms of hardware in terms of his dominance even with the bad team is far as hall of fame goes. Yeah I think think accumulation players are being phased out. Even if the hall of fame you know guys that are close to the big key numbers. You know I mean Jamie Moyer's close in wait yeah yeah three hundred right yeah he's never going to be a hall of Famer. He would never have been a hall of Famer Unit. Got That number. If you pitch Tilles fifty two right. That's all the player. Johnny Damon came close to three two thousand hits but even if he got there he shouldn't be in the hall of fame. He's not a whole player so I think that the idea of hanging around to accumulate stats that's that's those being phased out fell interest is and to me the the average player to see a guy at the age of thirty five like Yadi or Adam wainwright and still killing Yep. It's a thing of the past so the criteria of what a hall of Famer will be in ten years is going to be it's going to it's going to start evaluating these guys yeah. That's why I'm saying. Let's get ahead of the curve if we know the big league career is only GonNa be ten or eleven twelve years on average in twenty years from now and those guys is going to be getting into the hall of fame on first ballots. Let's put Don Mattingly in the whole thing now. Let's put Dale Murphy in the Hall of fame now. Let's put Andrew Jones in the hall of fame now. Oh Yes for crying out loud but Fred mcgriff in the hall of fame guys clearly deserved on time the criteria on Thomas manzke defensive drills video as mcgriff go in with the with with the nothing manzke drills had these this video that gets results. That's the face he goes down. That would be amazing of course so. Let's talk about the American League because you know in American League cy young because that's a race that's equally as compelling yet two guys on the same team with nearly equal numbers minus the strikeouts but I mean who's GonNa get it. Who Do you give it to. Ah Give it together and they're not that far apart no they're not. We're talking like maybe thirty twenty six or something. That's not that far apart writing gear coal and just Berlin relented. Yeah you know I I any other year. I would give it to Garrett Cole. He's kept US slight edge barely. Era strikeouts he's definitely in command there but just in Berlin had his his his no hit yeah. Kinda cy young moment. You know what I mean and he's yes. He's game. I'm one he branded himself so when it's neck and neck like that you can only go to the outside details the make your decision the no no hitter adds a lot of weight. Gary Cole- started game one of a postseason series for the Astros answers not that you'd see in your mind if you're voter yeah so gear Kohl's on a different team with the same stats I still think that no hitter would put Justin verlander over the top but the fact that you're gonNA start number two behind just burland and he's okay with it. I think he'll be okay. Losing the CY young to call. Isn't that amazing just the the amount of pitching they have on that team. It's just you would you. EDS face that there's no way WanNa visit best two guys guys. Let's let's be serious her. They're the best team in baseball. They are by far the best team in baseball. I suppose love the cardinals love the dodgers. The braves raw rods awesome the lead they don't all this with all the injured players yeah so great twins can sure hit some home run yeah at the end of the day as the Astros are the only Varsity team in the sport everyone else's JV and that's going to ruffle feathers and I apologize. That's an all all star team that plays every day for the Astros the Patriot guys we can look back in twenty years from now and look at three starters that are in the whole theme in the rotation rotation right now yep okay. That's how dominant this team is so. Let's just like some perspective. The Astros are better than everyone else if they don't win the world series. It's because upset right. They got the narrative. I think I mean the great thing is and the exciting thing is if you're a fan of based on you. Don't have a dog in the fight. Let's say Los Angeles emerges from the National League K. and they play either the Yankees or the astros that is soup a super compelling world series. Why because you know as kids growing up are WE'RE THE AGE of Steve Garvey Ron say you know Davey Lopes Bill Russell like those guys facing the Reggie Reggie Jackson Yankees in Fernando and all that stuff so you bring that back or it's the dodgers attempt payback time from two years ago last two years you know a yeah. It's a heavyweight fight it those those teams right and from television perspective those are gigantic television markets so I'm gonNA assume ratings would be great but I still look at it like the dodgers are the best team in the National League. They're built to go to the world series. the question marks they have in their bullpen. They're going to have to really rely on some young guys. Get Swing and misses. You're gonNA see that dust and may pitch a lot in the postseason coming out of the Bullpen Walker. Walker bill is going to have to be their best starter love. Kershaw first-ballot guy totally see it hundred review. What a year yes. They're not getting the swing and misses which is what you need come October so oh you're GonNa see young guys twenty six hundred trying to lead his team on the mound and I think it's going to run into a buzzsaw come world series. They just are it's like in the NBA finals. Defense gets just clamps down so same thing like the guys at the plate there. I the the the batting I get so much more discerning come playoff time certainly in the world series that yeah you their way. They're sitting on stuff. You got to blow people away. You gotTa have nasty stuff because they're not gonNA swing it stuff. That's out of the zone in the same way they do during the regular series season right. I it's a different sport. Almost I look at the regular season as the marathon and you need certain pitchers to help you get there but once you get to the sprint which is what October is. That's a Brian Cashman viewed as time to use bullpen off season when everyone was trying to clamber to sign starters. He was like you know what we'll choir James Paxton. We Love Him Greg Masahiro Tanaka Severino his career it will bring back Jay. Have these guys will help get the marathon. We're GONNA win the marathon and then let's spend our money on the sprints. Let's try to win the world series. Let's go. Let's go get. We're GONNA make sure our bullpen is super bowl penn.. We got Britain. We've got we've got qe keenly. We've gotten we've got. Chad greenback there. We've got you know a rollers Chapman back there. This team is is stacked in a perfect world when her before his issues they wouldn't lose real. You have to be back there. They went down. They WanNa del L. Batanes is to be back there before his injury so they wanted a bull pennine phenomenon to overtake everyone because it's a sprint it's a different sport on the mound than it is during regular season so Charlie said quick break and we come back some quick hits with Gregg emceeing host of MLB tonight.

Is that correct. Let them know. Are you on the yeah no any social media okay. I'm really not that interesting person everyone else. It's all social. Media deserves to be because they're fascinating but I'm really not all that interesting that much to say all right you. Do you get Edwin. People say you you when I saw you do this when someone else had no going and they get mad that you jinx their nose by by mentioning it on the where does that bother you. You kinda fun of it in a great way I think it's hilarious that people think that a dude in a suit yup in a room zero talking on TV has anything to do with the human being is actually on the field throwing a baseball I to me that's that's part of the the magic of humanity that people's that their mind go there like people actually think that stuff is real so you know. I remember being Super Bowl. What Santa wasn't real and I didn't forget my parents. Wait a second hold on a second vote. We got breaking news on this. Come on disrupt first of all. You're affecting winning. Santa Claus. I zeke Santa's. No hitter Santa data clear thing going damn did it is really. Let's do list pickets because this happened in. I don't know if you do follow other other sports. Are there other sports you enjoy or you like look at knocked in during the Bam locked in during baseball or do you are you a fan. Are you football fan basketball fan. Oh yeah I I watch I. I'm adopted the New York jets 'cause I lived in New York City. Area Sir say I tell gave the jets painful right now. I'm a huge Brooklyn. Clinton Brooklyn Nets Fan time good times ahead of you very excited huge golf nut. I Love Gall all college sports. I cover college sports for CVS before came so I really like a lot of sports well the Philadelphia Eagles. you know you know the filled you know. Philadelphia Fans Okay forget about doesn't matter what sport but eagles fans tend to be the ones that speaking of like giving it to Santa Claus the Eagles lost twenty seven twenty four to Detroit on Sunday and I don't know if you saw their wide receivers had a very they dropped a lot of balls. Nelson Aguilar really dropped a ton of balls and it was frustrating so frustrating that a guy who was helping people leave a burning building. He caught kids and his quote was Yemen. They were just throwing babies out the window and I was catching them on like Galore so he trolls Galore while saving having kids lives. He's like I'm catching them. Unlike Adler you talk about how sports in everybody's life even in the Angler can can come back at this Guy Sky saving babies from the roof of a building. No here's the crazy part about that quote. The dude was thinking about that well he's right saving lives and trolling another human being in the moment. I love that's good. It's snow. I liked that that he was thinking about football game while a child was throwing arms as Julia. That's deep. I mean but doesn't that tell you as defense. There wasn't don't like a d be behind the guy like trying to slap the baby to the ground or getting you know. It wasn't bump and run. They were like in a very very soft zone as he was catching the baby. So in his defense they were in their hover to is the babies were being dropped but still that is that Philly fans in Philly fans are they're pretty intense. I'm all for doing I really am man. I went to a game at Citizens Bank took the family and Bryce Bryce Harper. You know fly out right field and he's jogging back game scoreless scoreless. I burst any and the language the booing. Yep and I'm like I think all the fans going. You know what they paid price of admission fission man the right to boot your one six years from now. I want to hear what he said about that because that's your home crowd getting that because you're Bryce Harper when you read your coming to Philly as a whole player and you're getting out on a flats right the first any Dick that explains it. I mean it. Is that in that moment home and you know that Mike Trout is like thank God I'm in Anaheim Right. It's like I took four hundred million and people love me all right so we got some. We got some Lenny Dykstra News and whenever you got Lenny Dykstra News nowadays. It's never great. It's never like Lenny Dykstra just came up with a cure for hoof and mouth disease. Lenny Dykstra just adopted three highways. You're not gonNA hear that. Lenny Dykstra just apologized to a woman. You're never going to hear those. That's not going to be in the headline but Lenny Dykstra was supposed to celebrity fight the Bagel gold. Guy You know the Guy Bagel guy who freaked out at a bagel place. 'cause I guess he had to wait. A long time. Short little guy showed viral video. You're supposed to celebrity box. That's the Bagel guy and I know everyone was really excited and then he backed out dropped out. He dropped out so screech. Screech is going to replace him. Do we feel like this yeah. I know it's next man up okay in these things like who was behind nails on the depth chart right. Is this a good Ah. I mean if I'm offended me a bigger on Hayes around like somebody can step up and take a swipe this guy man anyway. I'm I would I would. Maybe pay to see that I would maybe pay to see screech fight the Bagel guy. We'll see you know look any time. I see screeched al I'm like. I can't believe the same booed. Analogy policy was brings back haul my childhood memory it really it all starts to flood back well. You talked about College Football Law in college sports and what not you know it's bad when as a college quarterback you're getting called out on social media by the beads. Justin Bieber is is he is he a Toronto Toronto Blue Jays Fan. I would assume that Bieber 'cause isn't he like he has some Canadian. You know he's got some Canadian routes. I expected to ever heard about his baseball fandom. I don't know if he's if he's even a huge baseball fan. I know he there was some communication back with him and Shane Bieber of the Cleveland. Indians really do is probably are they. I know that Bieber Shane Bieber here's that all the the time and I think there was a little back and forth but Justin Bieber actually has a house in the same town. I live in Montclair New Jersey. A lot of people don't know that does he uh-huh so he. I spotted in town all the time. He's pastor who's really close with has a huge church in Montclair. I don't go chew it but Justin is very close to him and either is always seen you know in some sort of convertible driving around Montclair so the God the way God intended so he so he called out this guy so some guys at quarterback for Arkansas Arkansas just got super are upset like upset in a in a way almost like Michigan Appalachian State years ago. They got upset by one San. FCS team. I'm not exactly sure but the quarterback back Jose state they lost to San Jose state not great they lost and the quarterback admitted to wearing ripped torn justin bieber Uber Shirt under his uniform Justin Bieber's I hey hey. Let's let me out of this right. He said I'm disappointed at Nick Starr Gopher blaming him like he kinda was throwing bieber's. I The reason why lost I'm gonNA stop wearing this torn up. BIEBER shirt be relied heard that he might be the reason. It's it goes back to what we're saying. People who are blaming giving you ruining knows unless the shirt was like restricting his arm mow his range of motion for his throwing arm. I don't know if I think A. B. Burs gotta be fair. beamer needs to speak up. I'm glad I'm well. I think I think you know Bieber even saying anything gives. Is this story. Actually you know makes it a thing yeah whereas if I if I if I actually called a pitcher and said hey yup oh Max Scherzer Graham singer here what's up dude. I'm sure you heard I was freezing. Your no hitter throws auto buying into it then yes. It's a story so we're just like. Whoa don't bring me into this. He's the leave it alone man huge nothing to do with he fan the flames in some way you're like Bieber. You're at one point said Bieber. You're better than that and then I realized what I was saying. I might know no. He's not he's not he's not. He's right down with that. I was kind of it's kind of thing love it. I love it man. Thank you you so much. We're so happy you could join us on the show today and we again. We'll be watching all the coverage you into the postseason and everything and after the Games and I'm I'm hoping are cardinals.

Flow Day because I'm the one thing is going to be real cool in the middle of the last time they will more than a one possession game well and now that game because of what happened what happened a couple of years ago. There's there's a latitude around that game now. These two teams there is there is that that argument it well well. They will be playing <hes> Florida now goes back to they go back to Baton Rouge on October Twelfth <hes> after playing it at the swamp for the last two years that should be an interesting trip for the Florida gators Florida's got Miami U._T..

Yeah thirty and I'll tell you nothing for downhill issue. All I may the reason I think they play hotel this kind of 'cause. They're Kinda like mirror images in the here's an A._C._C.. y'All way about one four all competent quarterback play well. I think it's going to be fascinating Jason. Gosh I appreciate your call. Let's go to Rick in Florida Hi Rick. Hey Tony Yes sir. Yes Sir I'm here. Hey I'm sitting here listening and all I hear about is Georgia this Georgia that you know Oh and and Florida Pa is is got Molin and last year we beating L._S._U.. Two of the last three years and and and we're coming strong and and it's like oh they got they got this. They got that and there's not one word about the GATORS radio. That's why we we've been waiting on women wedding rick respect man. Well we talk about whoever calls okay and so. I'm glad you called you tell you too. Is this the year if as Florida closing closing the gap on Georgia is this the year that they can hear that they're going to be Jordan behind up there in Jacksonville and they're going to be good this year. They come up. There and Georgia better worry about the gators to not just the Notre Dame coming today house and and this coming into their house they ain't going to date or they come mm-hmm is their house. They're coming to Jacksonville and it's going to be on and on the gators is going to be ready to be a lot of people. The country's GonNa find out that day ain't playing around this year and and they better quit overlooking them because they're going to. They're going to get the same thing Michigan and F._S._U.. got into last year overlooking them. They're going to get beat down well. There's there's no question no question that Florida played well at the end of the year. They had a couple of couple of hiccups but what I love is now. There's there's some smacktalk going on between Florida and Georgia for for the longest time they were there was really smacktalk and I I like it song nineteen eighty something for the Georgia fan because they stuck in Herschel Walker nineteen eighty years ears and they up there like they win and everything under the sun and they know then exactly set the world on fire when they get the big games. The gators got National Tadic was Tibo and then they got Werfel. George Ain't done since way back when I'm not GonNa you know how long nineteen eighty was and that's the last time they done anything well this. I am looking forward to that game. I always look forward to that game every year but it's going to be a little bit of an attitude. I appreciate that Rick. Thanks for calling my man. I appreciate thank you Tony. You're a good man. Thank you bet take care. Let's go to J K and Al Eski theakston would say and Alabama Obama was also tone shoot it listen with twenty five days away from the start of the football season. I felt a cool breeze the other morning. When I woke up people are talking about Com metlife? Who's got it better than us? I mean come on. Hey Man Hey Tony. Let let let me let me ease in between the Florida and the joy the fans because Florida got a game to play the first game of the week is with my hurricane so they can overlook us all they want to but but I wanNA talk about this <hes> benefit of the doubt is being given to constantly given to Alabama and <hes> I WANNA know why they get the benefit of the doubt plan a week's schedule like that but teams like Georgia <hes> South Carolina Alban that have to talk through the difficult schedules and they don't get the benefit of the Dow Day almost have to be perfect but Alabama's automatically given to losses. I WanNa know what was your opinion on well first of all you and I both know if Alabama goes undefeated against that schedule. They're going to get in the College Football playoff okay. There's not there's no. There's there's no doubt about that now. If they lose the game then you've got some doubt Alabama gets the benefit of the doubt the way that other teams get the benefit of the doubt because they've had so much success in the past but and so I if Alabama's F- Alabama's twelve and thirteen zero at the winter the S._e._C. Championship they are going. They're going to get into the playoffs regardless of the scheduled. It doesn't matter okay on the stand about pass but you can't reward a team or discount a team from past <hes> performances when you're supposed to be going by what they do in the current season. You know what I mean so don't don't get him to benefit a now because they did this back. Then there's going what they're doing at prelate the president's season you know what I mean so well now that that that's fair and and if Alabama doesn't play very well may maybe that's the fact of the matter is Alabama's got a really good football team and if you look at their their talent they've got a lot of really really good players and so again I think teams that have had a lot of success always get the New York Yankees. Get the benefit of the doubt Okay Blue Devils in basketball. They get the benefit of the doubt a great team they got all this stuff but they had a great team ossified <hes> when they got beat by twenty eight point one one more fluent on does rest payers thing I think I think the playoff committed needs to stop sending the committee chairman Chairman and make his usual statement at when it's time to pick the four teams if they're all about transparency. Let's get one night when they get ready to pick those four teams and get each member to explain why they take each member to play off because there's no transparency win. Committee chairman is the only one that's doing talk J. K.. You know that's not going to happen. Okay come on come on you've got you've got all those people the committee they've got real jobs. They've got lives okay and so you pick a spokesman for it but that kind of transparent people are not going to list who they vote. That'd be great. It'd be entertaining but you and I both not no. That's not gonNA happen but it is true as parents and if you hit and like I said to a lot of my <hes> football but it was never I'm on I'm ready for the other calls but I got one more thing to say okay. When you got a team that can go two seasons undefeated dear division champs and their conference champs but you leave him out of the playoffs why even rank them in the first place and what are they supposed to do? If going undefeated season won't get to the playoffs understood Jay. Thanks for calling I appreciate it. We're going to take a break here. When we come back? We'll continue to take take your calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five. This is Tony Barnhart sitting in for Paul. This is the Paul Finebaum show. Your home is important. That's why GEICO helps make it easy to save on Condo insurance because home is more than just a place home is where you took minimalism mm too far because there's only one chair in your entire Condo in your only entertainment is one card not even a deck of cards but a single card and all your guests have to share one plate in one fork but you're convinced that it less means more freedom. The GEICO Insurance Agency could help protect the overly minimalist broom closet you call home call Gyco and see how easy it is to switch and save on Condo in chains hi welcome back. This is Tony Barnhart sitting in for Paul Finebaum. Paul is on assignment today. He'll be back in this chair tomorrow to take your calls. He'll be back on television. We're we're we're already the rest of the week. He'll be back on television on Monday. <hes> for all you folks who've been tuning in one where where Paul is today. We're here to take your calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five. Let's go back to the callers. You guys are awesome today by the way college adjust to the shore absolutely incredible. Let's go to Jimmy in Chicago Jimmy. How are you doing? Well Tony <hes> couple weeks ago <hes> three or four days before if you see me days began <hes> I noticed that Clemson had announced the trevor warrants would about the <hes> A._C._C. Media Day and the A._C._C. media contingent of immediately led out howls of protest. I and I don't know if you're aware of this but when S._e._C. media days began on the following Monday I notice within the first first three or four minutes of his opening address. Mike's live <hes> made it public at how excuse you mean Greg. Thank you Greg Psyche. I'm sorry Mike Siva such a legend still stays with fun but but but Greg Sankey <hes> <hes> <hes> made the announcement that <hes> <hes> how proud he was of each of the programs to make it a point to bring their best his players and not only their top players which you mentioned earlier in the show included a nine of the starting quarterbacks in the league but also <hes> <hes> players that the media most wanted to talk to and I thought that was kind of a shot at T._a._C. C._N._N.. Clemson and I thought it wasn't a coincidence. A couple of days later that daboh changed his mind and decided to bring Trevor Hearts Today C._C.. Media Days and the question is the way the S._e._C. has made S._e._C.. Me Day sent to basically just a four day a celebration of the upcoming college football season and they do certain such a great job with it <hes>. I don't don't think there's any doubt to other conferences. Pay attention to what's done during the the S._e._C.. Well there's no question it and he knows this at times. They didn't call him as they call it the S._e._C. Kickoff which I thought was an interesting way to look at it. Look it. That's exactly what it is. It is it is a media. It is a media function but it's also a celebration of where hey we're getting ready to start another football season. The situation with Trevor Lawrence Arts at Clemson. I mean I know those folks but you you've got to take the players to meet some coaches. Look at it as a reward for your seniors and I can see that but but the fact of the matter is you need to bring your best players and certainly a starting quarterback who with that kind of exposure they I need to be at Media Day and I think <hes> I think people are learning this but as I tell people I said it is media days and you need to bring the people that the media media want to talk to it and I give the S._e._c. a lot of credit there were there were as you said Jimmy. There were nine starting quarterbacks there <hes> and I think the two that didn't bring starting quarterback Kentucky did not bring Terry Wilson but who's GONNA probably they're starting quarterback and I think Arkansas aw and vanderbilt haven't decided who they're starting quarterback is going to be so right and you know the S._e._C.. <hes> just <hes> just over the years just the events. They have that surround their S._e._C. Championship game they have you know I <hes> the bank banquet the night before the championship game in which they on or a legend from each of the fourteenth schools they just really carry the torch in innovation when it comes to <hes> how they do things and it's reached the point now that went S._e._C. Media Days Arise rise. It's <hes> I don't think anybody are is that it basically <hes> signal set that college football is here. It's going go to be here in a couple of weeks. Training camp starts and I it gets on everybody's mind I mean it's at the forefront. I don't think that's e cigarettes enough credit credit for just the tremendous job they do just not promoting their conference but but just promoting the sport and obviously the success us they've had gives them a lot of leverage in and being able to do so and I thought really all the all the coaches they were very <hes>. <hes> you know blonde just really no holds barred as far as giving assessments of their team now obviously certain coaches coaches are going to hold some things back and I think one thing will always notice is that when saving is it's quiet. He doesn't really seem name. <hes> you know uptight or anything like that. That gives you an idea. He thinks he's really got a good team. <hes> and there are certain indications like bad but but I thought all the coaches did a really good job but just being out front with everybody and let them be aware. Hey this search situation. This is how we're we'RE GONNA deal with it and they just take a job with it. Well I agree and I'm looking forward to it being in Atlanta and Nashville the next to two years. I think those those two cities we'll do a tremendous job with hey jamie. I gotTA run. Take another call. Thanks for calling. It's always good to talk to you can hear Tony. Let's go to Adam in in Alabama Hulo Adam how are you hey tony longtime listener. Thanks for taking my call sure on. I WanNa just throw <music> out there to all the Georgia fans that is not an automatic were given that you're going to get back to the championship game. I think they are overlooking a lot of a team that could disrupt them being one Texas A._M.. Sure <hes> also Notre Dame and then you gotta think afternoons aimed at South Carolina and then they play us US Florida midday Auburn Georgia tech so we'll from and they're oh go to running back that <hes> swift they think so highly of I mean they're down to warn if you really look at it from gets hurt their over their season is over one hundred percent no doubt over well. This is how the <hes> this is. How this is Georgia finishes? They have an open date then they finished with Florida Jacksonville Missouri. Who's going to have a pretty good team? allburn Auburn at Auburn Texas say in Athens the week after Auburn of course of the rivalry game against Georgia tech that that is a that is not an easy five. They're not many teams that play five straight games to close out the season five five games in five weeks to close at the season that is not an easy finish for Georgia. Yeah you know with with nick savage. How pro he he was a transfer? We have so many that tied in is it hasn't looked better and and since I can remember are running back I mean you <hes> tears p Ron. I mean they're ready to make a statement issue. I agree with other call forget his name but he was saying that <hes> he believes Florida was just Chris George. I I believe the same thing I i. I don't think it's going to be close. I think it's going to be about three touchdowns with Franks. You know tell people they're going to drop fifty plus points on people. I mean that's what savage has those guys believing that they can do it. I I want you for himself when we get to the Georgia Florida weekend. I want you to Florida Georgia weekend. I want you to call Paul that week and remind him that you and I had this conversation away back in July. Okay yes there will create all right. Thanks for calling all right. We it's flying by. We're gonNA take another break. We're here to take your calls at eight five five to four two seven two eight five. This is Tony Barnhart sitting in for Paul. This is the Paul Finebaum show. Come come back. This is Tony Barnhart sitting in for Paul Finebaum. Paul is on assignment today. He'll be back here tomorrow and we'll be here the I think the rest of the week and they returned to TV Paul Returns to TV next Monday <hes> which should be fun as we get ready to get ready for the college football season. We've been talking about the fact that this is the time of the year when you can start to feel it you can you feel the college. Football is really coming with twenty five days away. <hes> Florida has already started practice and by this Saturday August second. Everybody in the conference will have started practice so we're all looking forward to that but until seven o'clock clock we're here to take your calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five. Let's go to gator man in Alabama. Hello gator man. Hello Miss Bajaur how you doing. I am doing very very well. Hope you are too as started good here. You hadn't heard get along time well. I was back here in June always fun to suffer policy. What <hes> what do you have what you have in your mind today? Well Ah the previous <hes> far fans that call in I agree with him. What harm percent crawler is going to be? It's always gonNA lead them. Beat them bad. According to the last Guy Yeah yeah go follow has had that game circle all ear and they eh got a chip on my cell with Mr Joe Coach Jones put them to shame paste of years and it's not gonNA happen this year so uh-huh and to Georgia they're riding high still riding high beating the last year well paid for don't realize alive Georgia's reading. I rated team and they just don't play no great teams every year. Paul is GONNA show Tom Cruise who lost this year Jacksonville. I heard someone here. I'll back from <hes> he was a I guess Kelly expert on sports sports analysis person he said this is the best group <hes> player father's hands mm since the Urban Meyer era what happened then nicer championships one two of them well I. I don't think it's really neat <hes> that there's this more juice back in the rivalry again. I mean when Georgia I mean Florida had control of the rivalry for the most part art really since coach spurrier got their nineteen ninety and toward. You wondered if they were going to turn the tables now. They've won a couple in a row. Now this this this juice back in the rob. I like that a member of the game and get slaughtered and Joe Rogan the wolf and <hes> no-show Merino back. You remember that year. I think I do yeah what what what happened in that game well. All you hear all year long before the game was great. George Orange was an and followers while the hard time against the no ringing. Oh guess what they shut him down well very place. They show him down and they make nine P._M.. no-show Marino go slow the base of Snot out of order and that's going to be this year. I can't tell you I got a good thing for this. The years meet Mr Georgia and and I first half the game probably I looked to shit <hes> prom now so they can have slow win or second pain the quarterback second string quarterback if man on that command of the the second hi thank you ain't GonNa be number. Follow nostradamus e follow all right gator man. I appreciate your call next time. I'm here good to hear from. Thank you for small less. Go to Jason in Alabama good afternoon Jason Good afternoon how you doing. I'm doing great. Thanks good <hes> twenty to talk about Alabama a little bit and <hes> you know how much Clinton Talkin about how bad they beat them last year and you know here's my <hes> I know for the past ten in years Alabama hat and rebuilt. They reloaded every single year okay so what about Clinton <hes> they lost their whole defensive line to the first round and they'll drive I mean did they reload the whole eventually line well they. They would like you to believe that they the people that they put in it or replace. Those guys are very very good. CLEMSON's recruited very well but that's that's the great great thing we're we're gonNA. We're GONNA see it all play out but Clint Clemson has recruited very very well particularly in the last four years that Dabo Sweeney's been there now are they good as those guys that went to the draft probably not will they get as good as those guys could be and that and that's why that's why the game is so much fun we get to see all these things play out and if Alabama if Alabama and Clemson play again for the National Championship it is this time Ah Brad Edwards put this together. I mean the fact that the last four years they're both fifty five and four they both have two national championships there too into against against each other in the last four years that it's going to be incredible if they made a New Orleans for the National Championship. Can you imagine I would love to see it. I I mean I played football my whole life and if I was playing for Alabama I would love to get to that game. That's for sure no it. Is I mean I mean. I think that I know saving the the best coach than I've seen my whole life which I'm forty five and I think he's the best coach that I've seen like I said in my lifetime and I wanNA know like okay. They lost their defense align. What Alabama lose I know they lost their running back but I mean they recruited five stars and a guy that says he's going to win the Heisman AH fresh which I don't see Hatton him but <hes> you know I mean what all did the Alabama lose like last year that they're not going to have back this year well then the short answer is they? They think they're going to be just fine. I mean again again in had another number one recruiting class. They've got tremendous depth. I think if I'm an Alabama Fan I am. I'm pretty confident. The question is I can get to Atlanta when I get to Atlanta. Am I gonNA play Georgia. Can I beat Georgia again and then if I to get to the playoffs cannot beat the teams in the playoffs I I don't think quite honestly you know we'll we'll see how the Texas Stadium Game Shakes out on October twelfth but that game and the L._S._U.. Game on November ninth and Tuscaloosa I mean those to me. Those are the real tests that Alabama's GonNa get Auburn's Burns on the road. That's always an issue. I understand that but <hes> we we may not know how good Alabama is until they get to Atlanta China. We just They got beat by twenty eight points. I really have but I think they got complacent and I think that you know when you have and there's no excuses every team battles that every I mean but when you have as many coaches turning turning over. I think that Clinton had scheme for Alabama for for six weeks maybe eight weeks before they had nobody to play Alabama had l._S._U.. Gordon <hes> No. They're like no Oklahoma's defense what no oh good but when you got a heisman trophy candidate and he can I mean he's the number one person in the draft. I mean he was incredible and you know they have this game for that that and then you've got coaches that are already taken head head coaching job somewhere else so they're not all into it and well listen here. Here's reality Jason. AH WE'RE GONNA. We're GONNA find out for whatever reason and I give. I give Clemson a lot of credit. They deserved the win that game. They outplayed they outcoached the outhit Alabama Alabama for sixty or sixty minutes of give give them the credit. Now Alabama gets to say okay. We we get another chance we get to play another season and if we are take care of business we will get. We will get another chance and that's what makes this season so exciting. Hey gotta run and take a break. We'll we'll take a break now. When we come back? We're here to take your calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five. This is Tony Barnhart sitting for Paul Finebaum. This is is the Paul Finebaum show we are back. This is Tony Barnhart sitting in for Paul Finebaum Paul's on assignment today yeah but he'll be back tomorrow <hes> and in this chair and until the until then we're here to take your calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five ah they five five to four two seven two eight five. We are twenty five days away from the start of college football season. We are later. You're in the show we <hes> we we hope to talk to Todd Grantham. <hes> the defensive coordinator Florida. They're already practicing now because of their game on August twenty four forth against the Miami hurricane we also hope to speak to Edgar Thompson of the Orlando Sentinel at the top of the next hour but until then let's go to the calls and let's go to Bob Bob in Alabama Hello Bob what's happening Tony Bay. It's all good man. It's twenty five days to the season starts. I wish it started this Saturday. Well I just I I wanNA thank you for sitting in for Paula and there's good job in the show rolling slow. There's just little little Chris from your only hold on board and good job. We appreciate you sit down and handle it for. We enjoy listening to you buddy. Thank you bob the pleasures mind well. Here's the deal I was talking to you screener and basically you were talking earlier about <hes> you know checks nine A._M.. Texas and enjoy the Florida and different rivalries and I'm just like you and me both real real old you. Do you realize what twenty nineteen is the thirtieth anniversary of in the South <hes> thirtieth anniversary that would be nineteen edelman eighty nine. What's that anniversary move the Iron Bowl out of Birmingham? That's right I I it's funny. You should say that Bob because I told somebody this morning about landmark games for me and I told them the the the most emotional day I've ever spent now for me personally but watching it unfold was December second nineteen eighty-nine. There's never been anything like that. <hes> in my career career <hes> people who you know people who are lined up at the tiger walking what was on the line and you know Alabama's got a chance to win the championship play for the National Championship membership and all that it was <hes>. It's hard to believe that that's it's been thirty years but you're right thirty years. I'm dating you and I both but <hes> you you know if they moved to Florida Georgia game and if they get sex A._M.. And Tech Game Back and go home and home <hes> I'm Ann Arbor Graduate Bleed Orange and Blue No red white wyckoff postal my body you cut me I bleed orange and blue. <hes> I went there. My kids went there. <hes> both of them got <hes> graduate degrees Alabama so I I'm not as rabid as as some people still a lot of Alabama and I think if you could get there even their sculptures saying to Mitt moving it was a good thing for both school shortlist both towns windfall both cities Yes abdul well. Listen both Alabama and Auburn had it sunk millions into upgrades in their to their stadiums and so and with with with Legion feel aging the way it was it made complete sense to move the game home and home so yeah that was that was a good move for both schools well. I know you mentioned the fact that Yo- you feel like that the <hes> worlds guys cocktail party and he's just say you know it <hes> and you know arm a neutral site but in my opinion <hes> I think both universities look at it if no other reason for the economics involved and <hes> it's just I'm not sure it was probably in some ways more better than the Alabama Auburn in game but <hes> the end result both schools and for both alumni basis. If we've got some very proud of <hes> we've had some you know unbelievable gains gained Jordan how they've had some unbelievable game Bryant Denny and so he's been good for both schools both cities and <hes> I just wanted to Kinda remind you that because <hes> your million oh logging authorities in those days and say wow you've been that into really been that long it really has been that long and I will I will never forget Pat Dye speech after that game to the Oh tell when he talked to the media that was that was absolutely absolutely incredible well Bob. I appreciate you taking me tech meal that trip down Memory Lane. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa Scoot here and take another call but thanks for calling. Thank you all right. Let's go to A._J.. And Notre Dame A._J.. I've got about Matt two minutes on your mind. Okay Tony First of all thank you for taking about tall. My big thing was like listening earlier. I've been listening for a little bit today hearing about how unfair notre dame scheduling and we hear this every year and it gets it gets tired of hearing it if it's really that bad than getting A._C._C. I mean quincy an independent school and quit complaining about your schedule and not just when's the last time Notre Dame's actually won a game that that matter when Tom going back to the B._C._S. I remember them getting bears about Oregon State back then and they still have not really you want a meaningful game. Well it all goes back to really goes back to twenty twelve when they just get hammered they got hammered by Alabama in the in the championship game and then then then last year they get they get hammered with an undefeated team and so yeah they've got you know. I still still believe if they go undefeated with that schedule. They're going to get into the playoffs but they better. They better do something when they get there well. That's a question that why don't we keep getting into this while we oh keep fighting the notre dame and they should be in the playoffs. They got embarrassed your back. You know I know the answer to that question region. Why why why does Notre Dame get these opportunities? Why did they get because they're notre dame? I mean come on. You know I get that but why are we going to pass like you said if you really WanNa do something about it but then I see him to play Clinton and A._C._C. Title Auto Game to be there well to me that as we move forward and the key of course as you know as you know the key of course this is due does Notre Dame when it when their T._v. contract with N._B._C. is up. Do they get the same kind of deal I or war kind of deal that make it's all about the finances. It's not about who's winning news in and all that kind of stuff. It's it's about the money hey hey A._J.. I gotTA run. I got what we call in the business a hard break so thanks for calling. I appreciate call us next time all right right. We're GONNA take a break now. We'll come back at the six o'clock hour.

But your trainer is based where again Roswell Georgia and how is that possible for those who are unfamiliar with what you're talking about? So we do like a like a or a facetime meeting, and so for just thirty straight minutes, we go through like an entire warm-up. He walks through each exercise. He's able to see that I'm actually they're doing the exercise I'm not just paying them every month saying, Oh, I'm doing it and the not like it's full accountability that's pretty awesome. You like the program I, Love the program. How many weeks are you into the program right now we just started week four week four. Are you seeing some results I am when? When when we were doing our news, walk me like the stretching I've. been my ankle up I. Guess I'm not quite sure how to describe it but my calves are like shredded now. Awesome you're getting a great share. Yeah. Like it. Okay. All right now, Dr Brian, what did you do yesterday? How goodness we did some products around the house my daughter is on the pom squad and so there's some different activities going on with that. They have a camp that's going on in hopes that the school will be somewhat normal this year and then while she was With a friend my wife and I took our little girls to play miniature golf yesterday evening as beautiful night Yeah. Really mild for Oklahoma in August. So it's like I dunno seventy eight, eighty degrees and a lot of people out and we had a great time. So you had you had a good Saturday night we did and Nathan with complete carpet. What did you do on your? Saturday night. Saturday night. Oh, we went and finished watching. We're going through all the old mission impossible movies. Tom Cruise and so reintroducing the kids are finally old enough that I feel like the content matches their age group. As you get older, you start getting cited as apparent you're like finally wash. It and it's not weird except for except for back to the future no matter how old your kids get you watch it and you think there must be a lens of the history that we block out certain things because there are a lot a lot of language through back to the future. The first one that you just don't remember thinking when I was a kid. was whether this many curse words in this movie and you kind get about twenty percent through like okay. Kids. Let's watch something else. When wins the appropriate time that you start showing them all of a police yours diarrhea work because I feel like they need to know. Well, you know they're calling diary of work because what you call I mean have you seen bio dome? Yeah? Okay. Now, what we're going to talk about on today's show how to stay focused and organized in a world filled with perpetual distractions because yesterday when you were working out Jason You were working out. This is true. You're not doing something else. I was not okay and Dr Brek when you're with your family yesterday doing doing the miniature golf, right you were doing the miniature golf I was when you were watching the movie Nathan, you were watching the movie but a lot of people right now are trying to do three things at one time. So let me give an example to the listeners. As, we're doing today's show. I am not on my phone. I'm not on my phone I'm not distracted and I have committed this weekend. I'm going to get certain things done. Now those certain things that I'm going to do include a one taking the family to church today we'll be going today approximately eight, forty five am we will leave in route to church that takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to get there will we like to get there early? Nathan I introduced us to guts church I knew of Pastor Bill Sheer 'cause I've watched some of his sermons online I really like it there but order to be there I have to leave eight forty five to get there on time. But I think a lot of times. What happens is break as business people we say. I WANT TO GO TO CHURCH But I'm too busy right or I want to go miniature golf. But, I'm too busy and it comes down to learning how to stay organized in this world of perpetual distractions. Right? Robert Greene, the best selling author wants this is the guy who wrote the book mastery. He also forty eight laws of power. He writes in the future the great division will be between those who have trained themselves to handle these complexities and those who are overwhelmed by them those who can acquire skills and discipline their minds and those who are irrevocably distracted by all the media around them and can never focus of long enough to learn. That's there's a there's a big difference between people can focus and those that can't. So we're going to break down the specific steps. Our listeners need to take in order to get everything done wonders could explain this weekend when I'm going to get done. So the listeners have some context one I'm going to take take my kids to church. It's going to happen the second thing. I'M GONNA do. Is I. Definitely, I'm going to finish editing pastor Brian Gibson's book love handles. And he's always been a heavy set individual and his book is a marriage book called love handles and I'm excited to read it and I promised him I would edit that book. Now that's going to take me about five to ten. UNDIVIDED HOURS OF TIME? To do that. So, Jason would you recommend that I the book while I'm at Church? I M- I wouldn't recommend that. Would you recommend that I edit the book while driving definitely not? Unless you're driving a Tesla would you recommend that I edit the book while doing anything other than editing the book? No. So if you had the task if it was you and you have this task to edit the book, where would you need to be and when would you need to you? Personally, if this was your task, where would you need to be and when would you have to do? I would need to it either early morning or early afternoon. My apartment or ideally the office where I could just throw some headphones on and know that if somebody sees me working like if I'm around people, they see me working they're not going to bother me. But for something like that, where I'm how I read, I have to reread things a lot in order to make sure I didn't miss anything. So typically for that, it's gotta be Solo early in the morning couple hours before the world wakes up so I can get done. But you're saying again, you would have to do it at. You'd have you'd have to have headphones on if I if I was around people it, what time specifically would you have to do if you had to do? If I had to do it, I would want to knock it out. So I get up early and knock it out somewhere between four and seven. It gives me three straight hours where I know that most people aren't awake yet. So I don't have to worry about my phone going off. A lot of people what they say I I'll try to get it done this weekend, right? And Brek what does that mean would people say? Hey break I'm going to try. To get back with you this week. What does that mean? Well, personally I just take that as a They've left themselves that margin of air that window of opportunity to not get it done. Yeah. Rather than saying like you've committed to, I'm going to get this done like it's an affirmative statement there's no wiggle room in it. You've committed to it. You stated now there's an expectation that by the end of the weekend, Brian can expect it is done but when you say I'm GonNa try we'll. Now I've got that wiggle room so it's just built in excuse. I think everybody out there. Step one you have an action item. I think we want to say I'll try to get him I think we want to say that I will try I. think that's what we all want to say. But we cannot say that if we want to have success, we must say I'm going to get it done. So. In order to get it done again, this week and got get the book we gotTa Get the book I'm GonNa the book this weekend. Now the second thing I have to do this weekend because I said I'm going to get done. Is I have to write the questions for Mark Sanborn. Now Mark Sanborn is going to be a guest on the show on a guest on the show. He is a leadership expert and I gotta I gotTa do that I. Edit the I've gotta read the questions for him to be on the show. Eric, have to send him the questions I'm going to ask him on the show ahead of time. So Jason. If you were going to if you're going to sit down and design your schedule knowing that you have to edit the book. And then knowing that you have to write questions for Mark Sanborn who at this point? You probably don't probably don't know who Mark Sanborn is. When would you do it well, again with with the reading I want to get that out of the way. I'm alert and I haven't really had any I talked to the day. So I can just Kinda consume all that. So that would be anywhere between four am seven am, and then since I don't know who mark is I'm going to have to have some research time. So if it's the weekend and I don't have anything planned after that I'm. Taking. Our break get some caffeine get some breakfast maybe do like some light exercise would block out at least two hours of research in the early afternoon that way I can get everything done prior to the afternoon starting in the evening getting. So I. Still have some time to you know like wine down like a Sunday. So let's talk about all the things we have to do today what I'm trying to help listeners take all these things we have to. Do. So brecca giving, we have to edit pastor Brian's book right and again you have to edit pastor Brian's book because we said we're going to we we didn't say we're going to try to edit pastor Brian Gibson's book we're GonNa. That's something we're going to get done. Then we're for sure we're for sure we're not going to try. We're going to write out went to write the questions for we're GonNa Right. The questions for this guest here Mark Sanborn. Say we're going to do this we are going to try. To write the questions for Mark Sanborn now again, folks I'm this is this is real stuff. This is the real stuff. This is how it goes. This is the stuff we have to get done. Now, other stuff we have to do is you have to edit the voicemail for living water irrigation with the edit voicemail system for living water irrigation. Now, this is not stuff that we're going to try to do we have to do it. Again why do we have to do it? We have to you're committed to it. But if we said, I'm going to try to get it done. What would happen? Well, then you may get two out of three, but likely something's going to get pushed off the list other things are going to interrupt your day inevitably everyday. There's going to be son little burning fire that comes One of your kids is going to have their own emergency that needs your attention, and so if you don't have yourself committed to certain activities and blocked off time, then you know there's a thousand other things that are always begging for your attention. So we have we have to we have to also arrive today at the river walk at one. PM. Because yesterday one of our clients. His wedding venue canceled on him and said, he couldn't have his wedding there because there was concerns about the number of people do to covid nineteen shocker. Okay. By the way could cope in nineteen story. Mardi Grisham. Yeah his. Somebody in his family yesterday. was listening to our show and they. Got Diagnosed as having covid nineteen right and they took the doctor Bartlett Dr Richard Bartlett's recommended cure which consists of a using a nebulizer and a two hundred and thirty seven dollar drug that has FDA approved for asthma and they took the treatment and they are now not dead. Wow. This just in. Their feeling. Good I'm glad they're. No they're cured of code ninety they are they're fine now. Yet another success story. This we're hearing dozens and dozens of people who are now telling me directly. Hey, I took the treatment I didn't die. That's exciting. Meanwhile, this guy has a wedding coming up right and so he reaches out to many says, Hey, my wedding venue cancels. Venue do do you know of any other venues or something like that and I said sure have it at our at our office and so they hosted the wedding reception at the river walk yesterday up. So I said, I'm going to arrive at one o'clock today Sunday to let them in to take stuff out and throw away stuff and cleaned up all that kind of stuff if they have to return the office back to non wedding. Looks good in there it looks really good but I promised I'd let them in at one o'clock and just making sure all the listeners get this. Then I have to record an epic record an epic voicemail. For. King Screens Jason What is King Screens Oh? Man. They are a screen printer based broken Arrow but they do embroidery and hats, vinyl stickers and banners and custom T. shirts custom apparel of any really for the Greater Oklahoma area. So I if you had to do the voice mail how long would it take you to do the mail for King screens I block off at least an hour? It's it may seem ridiculous but I mean there's edits. It's gotta be epic. Okay. Yet to re listen to it to this. Sound. Okay. How's the timing? I would at least have to do an hour in the afternoon for that for sure. Okay. And then Dr Judy Mike. BITS THE LADY WHO was she worked directly with Dr Fauci and she discovered that Dr Fao Ci Dr Anthony Fauci is a very corrupt individual, and so she wrote a book called plague of corruption, which is endorsed by judge. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.. Okay this is Jeff. Kaye his his son there Kennedy Junior and so. We have been in contact with her and we're going to interview twice in the next two weeks and I have to write the questions. For her. Now. If I if you had to write the questions Dr Brick interview somebody who is the currently the number one selling author in America right she's the she's The New York Times bestselling author How long would it take you to write those questions why you're very familiar with their work and who she is and what's been going on so you I would think probably a no less than thirty minutes maybe an hour. Okay. Okay. All right. All right. If you had to write questions there, Nathan Heli would take you right the questions if you were going to interview somebody who's the number one author in America, at this time. For me yes, I haven't read that book yet. I've heard about it but I've yet to read it I'd probably have to put four to five hours in because I I have to get myself up to speed on the previous works. She's done what her credentials are, what her life experience has been like up until this point so that my questions are shallow. And just roughly about the book I want to know more about her. So we'd know what had happened. So I'd say it'd probably take me at least I'd carve out four to five hours to spend just really deep diving into some of the other things that she's done. Of course reading the book would have to at least get through the cliff notes up. So here are my notes on the book I've got him highlighted here, and I'm going to have to go through my notes from the book and I got to organize it anyway. So we have these things. So we I'm asking listeners today what are all the things you have to also have to take out the trash? got to do it as I have to take the trash out to the dumpster, the dumpster we have in our houses full. So I have to go to the office. So we got all these things we have to do to do now six o'clock. Tonight we have family time now, Jason Wide Do you believe why? Why do you think that I block out time every single Sunday for family time? We'll because it's to avoid the whole. I'M GONNA try to spend time with my wife and kids it's you actually do it. You block that time out so that time belongs to them. And then today it seven am we've committed to interviewing a CPA his companies called CPA's on fire. He's the official accountant for John, Lee Dumas from the entrepreneurs on fire podcast we're going to interview him at seven am so it seven am we're going to interview Ron Parisi and he is with a company called. Accountants on fire seven am, and then at seven thirty, we're going to interview guest named Tyler Hall Blade. So what we're seeing here is we have a lot of stuff to do today. I don't know most people. I'm just asking sincerely I WANNA get your take on this do most people. Have stuff like this to do during their weekend or what what most people do Jason you know a Lotta people what we're doing well, most people are not doing this most people that I know are still sleep right now. True. I can tell you my whole house is asleep right now. That's why I get. Mine as well. So, I would say most people do not most people on their You know Sunday to list there's probably no more than three or four Adams All Day. If I can interject one thing. Really the thing that we're talking about is the power of what your words can do, which is what you guys have been hitting on. You keep on it back and forth there's a verse in the Bible. Eighteen twenty one that says life and death are in the power of the Tongue Lotta. Times people think of whether you will live or dead, but really you could say whether something can come alive or whether something will die on the vine whether you say you're going to do it or you say you're not going to do it is whether it will not happen and so just tour kid when you're a little kid and you come in there, what is every dad do when their kid is arguing with your mom? You Walk in there and you say son you say, yes mommy and what did they do right then sooner they say, yes mommy they turn around and they do whatever. Momma said because once you acknowledge it with your own mouth, you do it and so that's why it's important that either if I think another part of this that you're GonNa talk is also remember to say no to things other. So you have the freedom to say, yes I mean what are all the things you're saying? No To right now clay. That's great. That is a great point. That is a great point I wanted. That's. What I want to make sure we we get an insane those on the list here. I just want everybody to take a moment today. In right out what you have to do. Just just take a moment I. Mean we have time go ahead. We have time we'll. Wait. What are your goals today for your faith? Your family? Your finances your fitness. Your friendship and your fund brick, what you're doing with your family did. Today we're GONNA spend some time around the pool and we're GONNA go to church together. will eat a couple of meals together. So faith. Family. Finances. Fitness. Friendship. Info. What is some you're doing today? Nathan with your family what's up you're doing with your family today. We're going to start off by. Going to church. So that we can get our spirit fed and then after that, we're going to move down and from our chests the spirit man's right there in chest we're gonNA move just below the chest into the belly because they were going to feed our actual physicals flesh with some good food is a good time. So you actually though I wanNA make sure we get this. What are we listeners? What are we doing today for our faith our family our finances are fitness our friendship. We have to make that list start off with the list. Here's the list although I've told listeners. Today. This is what I have to do. This is on my list I'm going to get this done today. That's what I'm. GonNa do today but now a lot of stuff's going on right and Robert. Green. Says in the future, the Great Division will be between those who have trained themselves to handle all these complexities and those are overwhelmed by them those who can acquire skills and discipline their minds and those who are irrevocably distracted by all the media around them can never focus long enough to learn. Yeah. I'm currently reading a Gym quicks Book Limitless Limitless Jim Quick, and yeah he's a teacher that to help educate people about learning He himself he had a brain injury as a child and struggled to learn, and then you know taught himself and figured out different patterns and methods and ways, and it's a. w. k. w., i. k.. K. Jim Quick and he actually dedicates a chapter to focus and the inability to focus and and people struggle and how you cannot really multitask. The brain can really only focus on one thing and a time, and so if you're not focused in one direction, you're really going nowhere but I think when you ask you know do most people's. To do list look like this I? No. But part of that is also because I don't think many people have a clear direction I don't think people really stopped to take the time to look at their F. Five or six goals and You know really have that target be proactive in very intentional about where their life is going, and so I think most people just kind of meander through in and default to you know the lesser common denominator more often than not I. Know I've I've talked to people who felt like they ended up with their spouse that Same. Way they just kind of started dating somewhere. They weren't really intentional about it but along the way we've been together this long our friends are getting married. Hey, will you marry me? Yeah I guess let's get married and you know five years later they've got a couple of kids a mortgage and they they wake up one day and they realize i. didn't actually actively choose any of this I just sort of fell into all of it and If you're not proactive, your life is going to happen to you rather than you deciding and directing your own story I. Could. Not Agree with what you just said Moore I agree with that I think people have to be intentional. So again, we think about these things we have to think very intentionally what are the things that have to get done? This week to to what are those things that you now around you people are going to reach out to you. With things that they want you to do right or people you know are going to reach out to you with things they. Want you to do things people you don't know. So we had a customer at elephant in the Room Men's grooming lounge on I think Friday who demanded to speak with me. And he said that if I won't take his call, he's going to open up an elephant and the their store competitive store next to me. In the same shopping center if he knows how much that costs. I, mean, he's had that he said that though. Because he demands to get his haircut with the same stylist time. And she happened to be out one day something came up so she couldn't cut his hair that day. And so he she she was out in our policy dolphin room is we don't cancel on customers right? If somebody has. Life emergency we don't cancel and reschedule everybody we get you in with another highly trained stylist and that way you don't have to reschedule. That's our policy just like in just like. An airline if if the if the pilot who was supposed to fly the plane can't be there that day. They don't cancel. The flight is a general rule. They just put another pilot in the spot they don't say. Let's Gentlemen Captain Smith was going to fly today, but because he couldn't be here. We've got nobody else. So folks it up this airplane and go back to our houses because we don't have any other pilots. Shepard Smith can't be here. I'm going to start my own airliner. Seems like a real silly reason to go to war with you? Could you imagine not? What gentleman now welcome to subway sandwiches, Carl couldn't be here for a shift today. So we're. Going to evacuate the building nobody else here knows how to make a sandwich and we don't WanNa be intellectually dishonest with you know many of you expected colonel to work the noon shift but Carl cannot be here and so we just want you to know that. Folks welcome to Lowe's Greg who works upfront he couldn't be here today so. Just for the integrity of lows we WANNA make sure that you know that since Greg couldn't work today shift we are going to be shutting down the store we like to keep the same schedule every. And we don't want you to be checked out by somebody WHO's not greg. Maybe three or four of you wanted to check out with Gregg. Now folks welcome to quick trip gas station. The hair we were going to let you pump your gas. It'd be checked out by Sally today but show Sally the cashiers been moved to another store. We're GONNA shut down the store in forever in in perpetuity because she was no longer at the store you expected her to be at the store hint of expected her to stay at the store for several years. I mean, come on a little little unknown secret is that that's how come and go started. That's why the name so dumb. Does the. Quick, not working. So I'm GONNA make another. By the way coming goes a gas station in Tulsa has many. Reasons why I don't. Go there but one of which is their name it's bizarre but I wanNA. Make sure we get. We're getting this idea is he demanded to speak with me right? He demanded to speak with me. I. Didn't talk to him though. It's good. You know why? Because I was scheduled an interview with Judy Mike of its who happens to know first hand. The doctor found she is a fraud. And Win The American people recognize. That, the man who they trust the most is a man, they should trust the least. I think things began to change right but I think as long as America continues to trust. Dr. Doughty. At all even a little. We have problems. So I love Congressman Jim Jordan kept asking questions. Did you see this? Did you hear this? Did you? Did you an experienced John experiencing it and he's not an easy band to excite the whole time. He's just like, oh Yes, he loved it. Okay. So I'm GonNa Queue this up here. This is Dr Jim. Jordan this him explaining. Doctor He's interviewing Dr Fallacy there. This is Jim Jordan Sorry Congressman Jim Jordan. He's interviewing Dr Chee this is audio and playing here from the hill YouTube channel. This is audio of Congressman Jim. Jordan. asking. Questions about the corona virus this is probably my favorite audio clip of the year. So let me cute up here about to protest increase the spread of the virus. Protest, increase the spread of the virus. I can make general statement or half a million protestors on June sixth, and I'm just asking that number of people does increase the spread of Iraq crowding together. Particularly when you're not wearing amassed contributes to the spread of the virus should be limited the protesting. I I'm not sure what you mean should, how do we say limit the protests government limit the protesting I don't think that's relevant to what you just said if it increases the spread of the virus I'm just asking should we limit it? Well, I'm not in a position to determine what the government can do in a forceful way. You make all kinds of recommendations. You know you make comments on dating on baseball and everything you can imagine I'm just asking you said protests increase the spread on just asked you should be try to limit the probe. Now I think I would leave that to people who have more of an Position to do that, I can tell you government people from going to church Dr Algae. Last week in the Calvary Chapel case five liberals on the Supreme Court. said it was okay for Nevada to. Limit. Church services. I mean just as it best. He said there's no, there's no world in which the constitution permits. Nevada favors Caesar's Palace over Calvary Chapel? I'm just asking is there a world? The constitution says you can favor one I am at liberty protesting over another practicing your faith. I'm favoring anybody over anybody. I'm just making a statement that's a broad statement that avoid crowds of any type. No matter where you are because that leads to the acquisition and transmission and I don't judge one crowd versus another crowd when you're in a crowd particularly if you're not wearing a mask that in but if It's a simple question doctor. Should we limit the protests? Government is obviously limiting people try and and look. I'm not been no there's been no violence that I can see a church I haven't seen people during a church service go out and and harm police officers are burned buildings but we know that I mean for sixty three days nine weeks it's been happening in. PORTLAND. One Night in Chicago forty nine officers were injured but no limit no limit to protest. But boy, you can't go to church on Sunday. I don't know how many times I can answer that I'm not gonNa Pine on limiting anything I'm just going to tell you Dr But I've never. Directly impacts the spread of the virus and I'm asking your your your position on the protests. I'm well, I'm not to appoint an limiting anything. I'm telling you what it is the danger and you can make your own conclusion about that. You should stay away from crowds. No matter where the club is government is government is stop people from going to work. Fact just in New Jersey four days ago. Ian Smith Frank from BETTA were arrested for opening up, trying to operate their business there Jim. They were arrested, but my my bet is if these two individ- zone, Jim were outside just in front of their Jim and all the people who are working on their Jim were outside protesting they'd been just fine but because they were in the gym working out actually running their business, they got arrested. You think that's okay. You know I'm not going to appoint on who gets arrested and who does not I mean I, get where I'm going I'm telling you as a public health official. I say Crowley you see the inconsistency though Dr Filed. There's no inconsistency congressman. There's no. So you're allowed to protest millions of people on one day in crowd yelling screaming but you try to run your business you get arrested, and if you stood right outside of that same business protested, you wouldn't get arrested. You don't see an inconsistency there I don't understand what you're asking me as a public health official to a pine on who should get arrested or not. That's not my position you could ask US I. Advocated for businesses, you've advocate for certain businesses to be shut down. I'm just asking you on your position on the protest I haven't seen one. We've heard a lot about hair salons I haven't seen one hairstylist who between haircuts goes out and Attacks Police are set something on fire but we've seen all kinds of that stuff during protests and we know the protest actually increase the spread of the virus said that. I, said crowds I didn't say specifically, I didn't say protests who any of the protests don't increase spread of the Bible. I didn't say that you're putting words in my mouth I. I would I just want an answer to the question. Do the protests increase the spread of the virus? I don't have any scientific evidence that anything I can tell you that crowds are known particularly when you don't have a mask to increase the acquisition and transmission no matter where you don't have a position on whether the protest, increase the spread of the virus or don't increase the spread of the virus. I'm saying that crowds wherever crowds are can give you an increased probability that is going to be acquisition and transmission, but do you understand Americans concern. Protesting according Dick Cornyn the Democrats is just fine, but you can't go to work you can't go to school you can't go to church there's limits placed on all three of those fundamental activities. Activities. But protesting. Just. Fine. Jim. Jim, time? Interesting. Interesting, pay. If I learned anything, he is not going to happen and if I hear the word one more time today, well, this is the same doctor told everybody that shouldn't go to church that certain businesses are essential and certain ones or not. But yet, he will not directly answer the question if protests and riots will spread the virus because government officials have encouraged people to go out into a riot and loot businesses but they have told people, they can't go to church the point is. Dealing with Dr Chee and making sure that I get out the truth about that man to as many people as possible is far more important than a guy who demands to talk to me. and. He said if I will not talk to him, he will open up a hair business, a competing business the right next to me. Maybe the click blows. I. What I'm saying though is somebody out there who owns a business would. Would take that call. I won't I don't care. I don't care. It's not worth my time I do not care. Now, another example of things I'm not GonNa do do do not that. I'm not going to do today I'm not GonNa have my phone on all day. The whole day. It's going to be off all day. Today he'll be off. And I don't have any curiosity about WHO's trying to call me either because I know what I'm going to get done. Today, we've talked about what we're going to get done today. But why why do we have to this audio only show? Why do we have to? Why is the very first step? Why do we have to the very first step? Why do we have to make it to do list Jason Explain to me? We have all these things we have to get done tubing. Why does it all start off by getting out of our heads onto paper because the second we get some new information, it starts to take bandwidth and you only have so much as you can handle cognitively per day. So if you know okay I have a list of. One two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven. Twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, hundred. You just put on this agenda you need to get those out as soon as possible because the second you get the sixteenth, you're GONNA to start forget one of those fifteen I don't I don't even remember what we just talked about. If you said it was. Getting. If you said, what am I going to get done today I don't know I don't know. So I put it. Out of step one, though he make a list of everything and step two, we put it in order. We have put in order right so we go to church. Here we got. Seven o'clock Jason What are we doing at seven o'clock here seven o'clock we're talking to. Ron For easy and he's the they got CPS. CPS Fire Okay and at seven thirty we're doing what talking to Tyler Hall Blade and eight, forty, five or doing. Heading to church okay and now W- Church starts at nine thirty. Why am I going at eight forty five to get there early? Get a better spot. Give you time to get a seat. Nabi late. Exactly. And again, I don't know what other people are doing some trying to people people ask me all the time. How do you? How do you get so much done. So I'm telling you what I do and I just asking this fall secret sauce right here. What is it? What does it everybody else doing on Sunday? I? Don't I don't even know what do they do I mean right now they're sleeping Another round of sleeping and yeah, I mean in Church starts at nine thirty for them. They're probably sleeping till eight, forty, five and then they're starting to get ready and then they're rushing out the door at nine twenty when it takes no less than fifteen twenty minutes to get to church there showing up late halfway through the Worship Service Yeah I mean there's an entire crowd that goes to church. This church starts at nine thirty and there's always the crowd that comes at ten for ten o'clock service of the nine thirty service. The back, Ulsan. Philip you're like, Oh, I. can see they took off at nine thirty nine. And I don't. Doughnut shops fault on the way they were backed up. The Devil being sincere when I say this. I. Don't I don't get it. No. Well I don't get like with the cell phone. I don't get it I. Find a huge amount of freedom not being directly connected not having my phone connected to my hand. people think it's crazy I hear it all the time how you know hey, essentially a message. You didn't immediately see it. You didn't respond. Posted something and I looked for your you know I mean my family know if I'm at the office that's what I'm doing I'm at the office seeing treating patients I don't answer my phone If there's a true emergency, you can call the front desk. The girls will let me know if the house is flooded, call the plumber. If it's on fire call the fire department, I can't do anything about it because I'm not there but that's that's why my weekend is so important to me because mostly my weekend is about family. Have, you know we have we're not looking for balance because balances like equal. We're looking for harmony where certain times there's certain amounts of music being played or one instruments coming in and others going out and so we're looking for that harmony all the time but it's not you know work life balance doesn't always work out that way but harmony can work and harmony is is a blended beautiful thing and so that's what I'm always working towards and so my weekend is is geared more towards family and worship. My were my work week is geared more towards work and so we just have this balance. That's one of the reasons why we spent the night playing miniature golf together as a family but you know it's I think going back to know earlier comments about try I think it was Yoda in one of the movies talks about there is no try to do or do not know try try track. Yoda said that I will say it is so important for the listeners out there to get this idea. It's seven o'clock we're going to interview Ron Parisi That's the time we're GONNA do it. We're going to happen seven thirty we're going to interview Tyler Hall Blade. because. That's what we said. We're GONNA do now eight o'clock. I've decided I'm going to write the questions for mark, sanborn eight o'clock. Now there we're going to go to church. Now we're going to go to church. At eight forty five. Now, we get back from church. I'll be back here at eleven o'clock and I'm GONNA. Tell you the least thing that the thing I don't WanNa do the most. Me Personally, I'm not sure how the listeners processes I do not enjoy editing books at all I I dislike it I don't enjoy it. There's not a single part of the process. That's enjoyable. Even reading books sometimes, I don't know that I like reading books, but I need to write Brian is a good writer. He writes well, the things he's writing about I'm interested in I'm interested in Brian as a pastor and as a writer. Be totally honest with the listeners I don't want to edit a book. Now maybe you're listening right now maybe you like editing a book. This is where we see this is where the wheels fall off the wagon for a lot of people they only do what they WANNA do right. They don't do what they need to do. So let's talk about this brick if it was on your list today editor book or a client. Would it be? Would it be something you wanted to do or something you had to do? Editing a booker probably more of half to do. So. It's you're excited about know. What about you, Nathan editor book but that'd be something you're excited about or something that you had to do you needed to do that'd be a definite have to do I'm an audio book person, but you sit down and a physical book form for me and it's just it takes me for ever I'm definitely squirrel like and so it takes a lot of focus to try to stay on one task longtime. Okay. So again, this is something I have to I'm going to do that right now I'm blocking off between eleven o'clock. It's GonNa take me till about three o'clock to finish this book I. Think. It might take longer. I don't know I don't know. So I'm going to put here I'm GonNa stay till four o'clock. Now why is it important? We block off more time than we think we need as opposed to not enough time you don't to be coming up short. But I think we're entrepeneurship do a lot I mean you could use extra time if it is less, you know then then it's like a bonus back to yourself you've gained time but if it took longer now it's crowding out something else I think one thing is super important that we're talking about here is. These Times that were setting to do the next thing Also tell you that you've set a time limit on what you're about to do because I think entrepreneurs are the worst at this that we don't set a time limit for how much we're. GonNa do and then we get into one task and then we do one of two thousand to do list and the end of the day and we're like well I guess I'm just not going to get together nineteen because we rabbit hole into one thing we find. The thing we do like and not set a limit, and also if you set a limit now you've got a purpose now you've got a goal now you've got something you're striving for like, Hey, can we get this done in thirty minutes as opposed to it'll take an hour. But if you said thirty minute goal I, bet you you can make it in thirty minutes mander slowly through it you'll actually have a purpose and function. Now when you have your your, we're getting the scheduled cleaned up here now now, this process. Takes me about an hour every day and sometimes thirty minutes every day every day to do this. It's my at time the time Meta from the Greek word meaning above it's GonNa take me time to do this. And I don't and I I I like doing it. I don't think so I I don't know I'm doing. So long I don't know if I like it or don't like I've ever had that taught pined on how much you like True his true Jason's about to lose it do it. You can't use that word breaking game now. So I had to wake up today at five. Am That's where I woke up today I woke up to five. Am Now this is a Sunday that's when I wake up usually on a Sunday I during the week I wake up at three but had to wake up at five and I've considered the first fifteen minutes of my day stupid time. I don't know if you break experience the same thing. It's mental cobweb where I wake up and I'm going. Thinking to myself. Him So early. I know that it's GonNa take me about thirty minutes to get. Get a shower to shower brush my teeth whole thing and I gotta sit down for about our plan out my day. How long does it take you to sit down and plan your day? So I typically do mine. When I hit the office in the morning. So I get up at four am at the office no later than forty, five five, and then it takes me about fifteen to thirty minutes just because a lot of a lot of my day is pre scripted my clients meet at the same time same day every single week. So I take a look at my calendar. Make sure that everything's still good to go there and then that's what I say. Okay. What other little things do I need to do? So you know if I get something from your John I WanNa make sure that I get that on the list schedule my workout stuff like that I'm not ripping on my wife or my kids. There are still asleep right now. Lay had a birthday last night birthday party that that's fine. That's fine. But if you're going to achieve massive success, you're going to have to live an unusual schedule and one that is very intention. I like to go to bed. My Perfect Day would be if I was not married I would go to bed at seven pm I would wake up at one am it would be the perfect life for me but I'm married. So I say you know what? I'll be up until nine but again, everybody out there has to figure out your normal flow. Okay. So here is the. Capstone idea here step one make it to do list every single day step to make a schedule for your day step three. Figuring out when to turn your phone off and window to window, turn your phone on more often on correct I'd say you should keep your phone ninety ninety percent of the day. Sincerely, that's a big ninety percent of the day keep your phone off step for. No To everything that you haven't on your list. Amen so Today this is the official schedule of today. Okay. So five am going to wake up which I did seven am we're going to interview Ron recalling him in just a second seven, thirty call Tyler Hall Blade Eight o'clock I'm gonNA write the questions for Mark Sanborn. Eight, forty, five I'm going to church eleven o'clock edit the voicemail for living water eleven thirty record the epic voicemail for King Screens Twelve thirty I'm going to leave to drop off the trash the river walk one thirty I'm going to edit pastor Brian's book and six o'clock family time and I will get it all done in my entire day I will be very Intentional about how I spent each and every moment including now, where we're going to call our next guest Ron Parisi founder of CPA on fire, and we're going to call him right now at seven o'clock in the morning because we said we're GONNA call them at seven o'clock in the morning. It's amazing. Theresa. Pickup. For his answer. Here we go. Good Morning Ron. How are you sir? What's up. Hey Bro. Thank you. I'm excited to have you on the show for for part two and on today's show, we're GONNA walk the listeners through your. History. A little bit and see if you might be the right fit for some of the folks out there. So for people now want to know who you are I. I heard of you through the entrepreneurs on fire podcast. Where the hosts John, Lee, Dumas us a one of the most downloaded podcasters in the world he was bragging on you and saying that you are a great accounted. How did you first meet John Lee Dumas. Sure yeah so The founder of CPA and fire Josh byerly reached out to John six years ago just this John's just getting started and I think originally, we asked to be on the podcast and he said, well, you know I don't know I wanNA talk about accounting per se but I need an accountant. So we started we relationship six years ago and obviously John's gone on to do amazing things and we continue to be his accountant and We've been guests on his podcast several times you know we do the. Income report with him as well on his podcast and just really kind of came up together and I think the thing that we share common between John and the folks this ep on fire I mean he's Got US sincere interest in helping entrepreneurs and helping people really thrive in the space and we hear that and we also you know he's a hard worker and the we work very hard here. So you know a lot of a lot of synergies and you know. I can't say enough about John Lewis Solid Guy. So now you all started you you mentioned John Lee Dumas. His monthly income reports for people out there that aren't familiar with e o Fire Dot Com Jolly? Dumas's podcast is one of the most. PODCASTS on the planet. He's interviewed everybody from Tim Ferriss to Tony Robbins. It's a huge podcast and he does these income reports. We explain to the listeners out there what the income reports are all about. Yeah, I was very I. It's very unusual. You know John's very transparent. with his income you know what he does how does it and you know he just sort of sets the stage just to show you know what's possible you know 'cause listeners you know, hey, we all we all you know probably you'll struggle with You know can we do this? Can we do this and then you know, I, think, John by sharing his numbers with his audience shows that it's doable and the sort of sets, the stage and the road for for folks and the Oh. It's amazing to think about all the people he's helped. You know the last six years how many businesses he started, how many people who inspired So I think it's a you know the fact that he shares degree thing. So you would you would you say is an accountant that your? Role is to help your clients be proactive. was that something you do or how would you describe your approach to accounting? No absolutely You know we really focus on people that want to grow. And He's usually extremely talented. People very trade of driven and Yelp we help them. You know there's there's always going to be stumbling blocks of course corrections and we really helped him. The term I use a skier, you know get on the front of your skis. The only way you can you can turn on skis by you know planting the front of your skis and hedging about. So you WANNA get on front of your skis only be proactive. You want anticipate you want of course, correct in most importantly as far as we're concerned. we want to give a picture of the somebody know as as quick we current numbers as possible. So you know the the entrepreneur business owner can make the right decisions the businesses that come forward they have. If you're she's got the right information at the right time, make the best possible and it's you know. You know my experience twenty, five years you know it's nobody started a business and the next thing you know they're just hit you know there's always course corrections is always setbacks and it's about having the right information at the right time to make the best decisions going forward. What percentage of clients do you believe have their? Proactive approach to accounting before they get a hold of you. I mean, how many clients typically know their numbers well before they reach out to you. Almost, your you know maybe maybe self filling processing but that's why the reaching out to me. But you know I've I've had clients that are doing extremely well, that have no books records they just basically you know whatever's in their bank account. That's what they think their income is and they're just be Oh and it's you just shake your head because once you start once we start working together and we build with the. Process and we build would return dashboards and we let them see how they're doing and making those decisions man they just they just chewed up and then you have also people that come to us with quickbooks and it's just yeah, it's it's one of those You know the fishing lines you know just crazy you know bundle your stuff everywhere takes to wants to clean it all up for folks. So almost zero. With the books in line and and ready to rock and roll we've been talking on today's show about how to be proactive with your faith, your family, your finances, your fitness, your friendship, your fund, it requires sitting down and having a plan I I want to know when did you? You obviously had a lot of success. Now, when did it first occurred to you that you? When did you first have the thought that you wanted to become an accountant? Saw How Much he I. Guess a lucky one in the fact that is sort all in high school, a teacher who was a former accountant and She misses barbaria. She told she taught two years of accounting in high school which I think it's very rare Amanda she drilled devastation credits into my brain and by the time I graduated high school and I wanted to college majored in two major De Accounting. But all came music to me and It was that solid foundation of of of the accounting work and I've done other things you know went to law school for works at a big four accounting firm international tax. So I've done other things but then the root of debits and credits and that sound of accounting men's just really served me well and all. Consulting with the clients that we have now. So you know it's it's obviously a lot more than debits and credits, but having the foundation. Of the accounting and being able to you know when you really understand topic you're able to explain it. You're able to teach it and you're able to explain it in plain English you know you know get on c. p. classes and things like that where you're talking you know thirty thousand feet and you just can't understand of because it's all lingo and things that he'll a really tried to feel really bring it down to a level people understand and I think the only way you can do that is really having a solid foundation in the fundamentals. So so you had you had the idea that you wanted to become an accountant at what age Probably, like sixteen, seventeen, sixteen or seventeen, and so when did you feel like you were finally? When when did you feel like you're gaining traction with this idea was that after you had the degree the did you feel like you were gaining some traction? Was it was it when you enrolled in college to get the degree in when did you feel like? Okay, I, am confident. This is what I'm going to do professionally. Yeah. Probably when it started with big four concord CWC, he started big class simulate A. Hold up and you know I. Get Kelly celebrated my career right off for starting an audit and eventually into tax and I was always on top. Top of my class, and that's really where I felt like you're around you super high level professionals and really just just kind of clicked. You know at that level. And I was you know I've always been in the entrepreneurial side even with the big firms, those always on the entrepreneurial team and things like that. So we joined. The business game closer to the business decision. Making was was always my goal. So what year did you guys start the accounting? Your firm. Now, what did you guys start the from? Yes probably got two, thousand, fourteen, fourteen. Okay, and yeah. So we've been around six years. Josh Josh Spouse and started it and I've got a you know been affiliated with Josh for probably the last three years and just started you know taking over management last year, and this is where we really started with a tax base and now you know we've been able to expand that to a lot more advisory firms Susan virtual CFO services. So what are all the services that you guys provide for lines? So. So we we really have narrow focus. You know we really try to work with online businesses that are looking to grow you know two x five x ten x you know these are folks that. Are established with business idea, but really trying to get to the next level and that's really our sweet spot. So we start off with the you know we're really good at the fundamentals, right? The bookkeeping tax planning compliance but you are sort of special sauce comes into a you know anticipating what that pack looks like for somebody, it really wants to double triple ten X. or their their company. You know relatively short periods of time two years, three years I mean these guys have done a terrific job of growth and you know so we do the fundamentals right? We take all that bookkeeping take on a compliance for. we sit down to a tax plan. You shouldn't do everything into things solely on tax cut taxes should always be at the table when you're making decisions because it's not you know the financials are good but at the end of the day, it's how much money you get to keep and put into your pocket. So we're always working with with the tax planning, but then really where the special sauce comes in that you know one on one relationship with customized reports. Okay. What's going to really drive the profitability of Your Business but sit down and do a lot of meetings monthly meetings now? everything's virtual us. So we sit down and we talk about. Their business and allows them to sort of. Get. Out of the day to day you know our clients most of them work with remote teams. They're probably by themselves a lot have maybe offshore consultants, gut it and They're always had always working on a business. This allows them to step out and really be you know that that o of of the business. So let's say a Jason Think about some of your clients work with fire off for. A Ron, some of the industries you work give Ron example of some of the clients who work with the industries or businesses I mean there's automotive repair. There's a contractors construction electrical pool. Pool. Building. Let's see why blinking illegal. Apparel. I. Mean That's so. If these entrepreneurs are listening to today show and they are not satisfied with the accounting services that they're using now. What's the first step Ron people need to take if they want to see if your company is the right fit for them. Sure, we have pretty dynamic website CPA on fire dot com, and we invite people. You know if you think you're you're good fit. and you want to sit down, we offer thirty minute consultation and you. We'll sit down with the folks and I always promised always usually a good a golden nugget. They find it thirty minutes. You know we talked about their emissions and we talk about where they want to get to we kind of sort of high level plan and they always be. Some kind of gold. They've never thought about before. So now what I have found that most people when it comes to their accounting the usually in Brechin self employed for a long time. So I'm sure you can relate to this until you kind of learn the systems but I know most people might say myself included when I first started DJ connection. Your run the company and you get. You get to the end of the year or the end of the month and you go how do I Owe this much in taxes or how did I get here? We almost view accounting as like a rear view mirror. Almost trying to find out what happened in the past we're starting to say what had happened would I didn't pay tax that involve a sub we find ourselves behind. Do you help people? Get ahead where they actually have a plan where. Do you help. Business, owners get ahead of the the. I WANNA. Hear your your take on that Ron the most entrepreneurs I talked to tell me they feel overwhelmed because they're so far on the whole the wrong way. Do. You help people get more proactive or where does some of the changes you help them make? Are Actually you know but we say those surprises, no surprises no surprises You know what happens at the end of the year exactly classic classic example Hey, we have this in the bank you know they're making business decisions taking they have this much cash and the next thing you know the tax bill comes April fifteenth and they have to use a re. Check. And it changes everything for them and we try to you know get proactive. We try to figure out where they are today. What's their budget we work with them to work on what's called quarterly estimates. We make sure they're paying in the right amount And those prizes at the end of the year again Being proactive making the dis-decision business decisions that you know day day. So what is your service cost if somebody out there is trying to figure out what it costs what's what's the? What's the price range? So, we work really liked to work on a subscription model on a monthly anything from bookkeeping. Starts About fifteen hundred, a month and then our packages SORTA start from there. you know if you're not quite ready and you don't have. A sizeable business, we also have some tax planning packages that just allow folks work with just on a tax planning as getting deals thermal momentum business. Again, that's focused on the no surprise to be proactive type approach fifteen, hundred dollars no gets me in the game. Is that correct? That is correct in. Do you meet with your clients once a month once a quarter once a week how does that work? Yeah. So most of our eyes meet once a month and again allows them to. Bring them out of their day to day. But some really seeing business as a CEO Dan whole new perspective. On it and that's you know again, that's part of the secret sauce Once we have consistent meeting month month and they're able to to to see their business anyway again, you know that's been really off to the races they we really seem some great results doing that multi meeting Saddam see that dashboard of the business performance I've heard people brag about your visual reporting, what is what does that look like the dashboard? What does that actually look like? Yeah. So we look at, you know going to get into Geek speak here but KTI's. Key. Performance indicators, you know. So we look at the business. Okay. What's really going to drive success you know Everybody knows right. You have to pay attention to nothing grows by itself if you pay attention, you know exactly. What you're going after you know the goals you can succeed. So we tried to put those Katie is exactly what you think was dashboard right? Look at your car you have your speedometer. RTM's same thing you have your KPI's he'll. Be Kpi revenue profitability. You know outstanding a are You know what? The what is a arm and To other who don't are. Achievable. Okay. Got See. I was thinking artists. Here by being monitoring, that's for good. So you took I wanNA make sure the listeners get this you if anybody out there wants to have you do a once over kind of look at their business. You're saying you'll be happy to sit down for thirty minutes and to go over, ask him some questions figure out where they're at and you're saying you find a golden nugget during the process and all that's free. Correct. That is correct. Okay. If their. Own CPA on fire dot. Com C. P. A. ON FIRE DOT COM and if they talk to you, you're saying they typically find an a Ha moment a golden nugget something magical that happens and then if they want to be a client with you, it's about fifteen hundred dollars a month. This is that correct or is it more than that? that the bookkeeping and then we go from there you know there if there is more customization if a lot of guys have multiple businesses. Yeah. So it could build from that. So now down. This is rare. What you do is rare. But I find most people get in brick. I'm not asking you to rip your Accountant. I'm just GONNA say I've used a lot of accountants in the past I. C and I'm very happy. My wife does a great job being very proactive with them but in the past, all the accountants that I've used, I've personally used I'm not saying that all accounts fit into this category I'm just saying the ones I've used. Never. Would tell me anything proactively and would always call me at some point Ronn. Towards. The end of the year it would say, Hey, you need to come in and meet right because you need to file an extension and I, would found extension and then I'd find Odiaum epoch amount of money and then we would make a plan to pay it off over time a brick have you had a different experience with other accountants or one of the things I wanted to ask about was you know in my experience I've been an entrepreneur for about sixteen years now and. You've got this idea or this analogy of the car and the dashboard. I have had trouble learning the rules of the road and I've had to do it over time along the way. So is that something that you do with your clients in the monthly meetings? As far as you know, some of my friends who were also business owners might know better strategies or things about accounting that I just felt like I was in the dark on so they're like, yeah, you. Could do this you know business meeting or you can do it this way Hey, you can't that's not deductible and so you wouldn't spend in that direction some of those types of things How often do you come up with business owners who don't know certain aspects of what they could or couldn't shouldn't be doing from tax vantage point where you just have to give a basic overview of. One of things found out. Recently was about like wardrobe and stuff. So you know if purchase scrubs for my office that's not something that's deductible whereas I thought it would be as a business expense You know just I mean even small things like that up to big things. How much of that do you do as far as from a? Coaching standpoint of letting your clients? No. These are things that that you should or shouldn't be doing in. This is how we start to become proactive. Avenue Jackie breaking the that's that's exactly what we do is that With a client comes to be very rarely they speed. Who can be the tax law changes and. You know day to day it seems like this year. So it's it's just a matter of You know we sort of started learning journey a learning journey together where it's just You know an education again, I'm not trying to flex my muscles donis meetings. It's really just you know, hey, what's happening with the business but see we can get into right posture educating the client on your what's the best way? Use uses their money exactly that. was. NOT FROM TAX PLANNING STANDPOINT And I find that confidence is huge. You know with entrepreneurs and these guys that I work with. You know I'm assuming you're similar super create very good at what you do. Right. But they're their confidence sort of weans when it comes to their books, records tax planning and he's not meetings as we bill you know as we're building a plan for these guys all side you see their competence really increase. Business decision timing is so much faster and that's you know getting party secret sauce as these guys really accelerates above Oh, absolutely. I, think yeah. The if I know the rules that I know how to play the game and so the the more confident I am in knowing those rules the better I play Jason You have a lot of clients that you've worked with and I just want to know as a consultant. What percentage of the time do your clients come to you and say They don't know where they're financially. Almost, every time I've had, I've had one client who has been really good about tracking. His progress since before he started. Yes. But but usually it's like they need help for me and my career every single person and I think I think the problem about when you reach out for an accounting service what we're used to. and. Maybe maybe Nathan had a different experience with accountants. But what I think most people are used to is every time you call your accountant to ask him a question you get one, hundred, eighty, seven, dollar bill. And you never hear from your accountant. And all you know is that it's almost like a meeting of shame you go into meet and you discover that you owe a ton of money. And so you. Think people shy away from talking to their account when they actually should be in touch with them often. Nathan of you had a good experience with accountants in the past if you if you if you and your wife found one that you're very happy with at this point or how's that going I have not I think the hardest parts getting someone to call you back just seems like they're there mystical ghost except for when they want money from you. I. Did have a question for you. Because you mentioned the thirty minute meeting and getting a gold nugget and I know you can't give all the gold nuggets away because you know there's there's the secret sauce you you're talking about. But is there like a little sh- liver maybe something off the kind of the edge of the Golden Nugget that you hear most of your Small businesses like ours. The problem that we run into the most that we just didn't know we were supposed to know is one of those things that you like oh Nine Times out of ten run into this that they just the should be doing this. It'll make the change for their life. What can people listen this show say oh, man that's GonNa help me. Get. Question. you know it's really customized. Listen listen usually it's like, Hey, have you thought about you know this revenue stream where you have you thought about doing this differently but Yeah, I just think you were we talked about earlier and that's getting ahead. Of your tax estimates soaker. So to know you know particularly this time you'll in this year, cash flows king. Thank you manage casual. So it's between you're doing the tax estimates and understanding cash flow is super important. Where we focus on I, are there are there? Is there a book maybe that you would recommend all of listeners have that all the entrepreneur listeners out there From your perspective as an accountant, their Ron I mean you guys that CPI on fire I know you consume a lot of books. There's many books but is there a book you'd recommend our listeners would have as it relates to accounting for their business were or their relationship with money and cash? Wow. That's a good question. You Know My book that I always go to and I I. Don't know if it's necessarily an accounting book is Keith Cunningham the road less stupid man that guy talks about. So many different concepts about running a business for an entrepreneur. But you know as far as accounting concerned you know we have our book is You know by Josh byerly is about the just the the key accounting fundamentals it's just called accounting quickstart guide. That's just kinda covers high levels. bookkeeping excellent owes but you know the road less Stupa keep Cunningham and I know everybody knows the we visited by Michael Berber I give that to my client, my clients all the time. I've never heard anybody recommend the road less stupid. By Keith Cunningham never that's the first time. So you get to make a point I thought nobody ever Recommend that book of course. You. GotTa make a point that's an original book recommendation. Now, as far as the the myth I have had that book recommended by many many people to me, and throughout the years, I've read the book twice and the author of the Book Michael Gerber. We have had him on the show. So I mean I could not agree more final two questions for you. Then I'll let you get back to having a great Sunday there. If the listeners out there want to engage with you if they want to reach out to you they want to. Schedule that free consultation. What's the best way to do that? Yeah, sure. So visit our website CPA on fire dot com and right on the homepage. You're GonNa see you know book an exploratory call and Know I hear what you as you're saying right accounts. I personally think counts take on way too many clients that cannot be proactive with their clients and I think at the end of the day your clients suffer. So for us you know were you know limit in our clients that. We take. So the great starts is the book the exploratory call sit down work on your business for thirty minutes find those gold nuggets at least one and then There's a good fed going forward. Okay. Okay. Jason a you have this supernatural ability to ask the questions that America wants to ask yes but a lot of times America doesn't have the chance to ask on behalf of our clients. What would be your final question here for Ron Parisi CPA on fire. I'm hoping, Ron can save me and my clients and the rest of America, from this question because nobody has yet been able to give me an answer. So when I first started in my, I don't even want to say accounting I did accounts receivable accounts payable for two different jobs but. My background is in customer service. So when they were training me through everything, they said, okay we'll basically for accounts receivable us out to know the difference between a debit and credit and you're good go. Okay. Cool. I'm twenty one. What is what's the difference between the debit and credit Moscow's will a debit to debit and credit to credit. So my response was powerful. Yeah we'll all butterflies or moss but not all. Mosser, butterflies do you know what that means and she said? No. Okay. Well, now we're in the same situation. So to the average person who doesn't have like a CPA really deep here what's what's the difference between a debit and credit because I feel like a lot of people lose like they get lost in the conversation to count when it talking about it and they'll no idea what happens after after the fact. Yeah. That's interesting So I always kinda visualize or have my clients visualize the down she and the profit and loss statement as a puzzle my. Debits and credits are essentially pieces of the puzzle that go into your making up both those balance-sheet both those financial statements. So you know depending on the uses of it it's debits are different in are different. I think that people who balance their checkbook can't understand debits and credits. But when you get into the accounting world I, think that's when you get the difference between Boston butterflies but essentially you know the the debit And the credits not so good but and that's on the balance or on the PNL and the reverse on the on the balance sheet. So. That's helpful or not good. That was. Yeah. Because I mean, do you give me two resources? Okay here this sounds good here this is not so good and then vice versa that's a lot better than ones. One thing that's called the I was GonNa say this is my shameless pitch of Ron and what he does is a lot of accountants speak only in Lingo that you don't understand. So it's like going to a Spanish class where the teacher refuses to speak English ever because she wants to teach using immersion and that's a really great clever idea that allows teacher to not have to engage explain to you. What they're talking about but I had Spanish one in Spanish to in high school and don't know lick of because the way it was taught was this immersion ridiculousness with the teacher with the entire time with speak in Jargon Aka Spanish and so you had no idea what the person was talking about and although they thought immersion was a great way to learn no one had any idea what was going on so even though I graduate I finished high school and I had Spanish one and two I don't know anything about Spanish I'll I knew how to take a test ron does a great job of breaking down Complex. Accounting. Principles into a way that every entrepreneur leaves the meeting with confidence and feeling like they are on fire. They feel like they know what they're doing. They feel like they understand where they're at financially they understand where they're going financially and the good folks at CPA on fire dot com. The, absolutely there to serve you in to help you the first consultation is free, and after that, if you WanNa pay then they have different packages but Baronne, thank you for joining us on today's show I really do appreciate you and again if people wanNA reach out to you all have to do is go to CPI ON CPA on fire.

A right. Now we're going to call Tyler Hall Blade because that's what we said we're going to do. So we're calling Taylor blade because he's in our schedule because that's what we said we're going to do and in a world of perpetual distractions, there are many things around us, all of which will not get done while I'm calling Taylor Hall Blade. So here we go. I'm calling Tyler hogwash right now I'm calling him because that's what I said. I'm going to do not curious what he's trying to call me because I'm calling how laid pining for his answer here we go reaching out to us. This hour, Tyler, what's up man? This is Clay Clark with the thrive time show how are you on this beautiful Sunday morning? Get Gallon Dude I'm excited to talk to you who's been telling me that you're setting records for the listeners out there that don't know what your business is. What is the name of your company. Trailer Manufacturing, and what's what? What does the web address for people to check it out? WWW that prematurely dot com promo trailer dot com, and where are you guys based? Phoenix Arizona really now Andrew is to me that your sales are going way up. So before you tell us about that, how did you first hear about us? I listen to you guys podcast probably three years maybe. Yeah. I used to listen to every day and then island to the conference probably about a year and a half ago. Started how would you describe the conference experience? Just high energy positive You Walk Walkway from like every day feeling very. Excited and and Learns. You learn so much. Our conferences we have these forty-five minutes sprints we teach for forty five minutes, and then we break for fifteen minutes forty five minutes break for fifteen minutes. During that break, you can write down questions and we answer the questions you can use the restroom you can go grab some coffee you can whatever. Can you describe the structure of the conference in in what that did for you in terms of learning, you know the forty five minutes France with the fifteen minute breaks. Yeah really good you never like I struggled in school. So sitting for time was really hard by it. Gave you focus time and then you able to go and talk to other people that were like minded, which is really cool during those fifteen minutes. I never felt like your press new chair for eight hours, right Oh, it's different than any other kind of events here. So did you like did you like it or alive? How would it compare to the other ones you've been to? That how would it compare to the other ones you've been to the other conferences you've attended? The value I mean one, the price was probably less than half live normally paid for some other ones. And the value is ten times better and it was just more encouraging is more my vibe more people that were like me I attended than any other one so you're able to connect. With people who are. In that same mindset which I don't think a lot of these other conferences Saturday you just fun all a bunch of people wearing suits into massive conference room for like I said eight hours. So then you left the conference and I don't like an and Jason I don't like it. You know I don't like it. I don't like when our conferences are too big. Smaller because you can't answer people's questions I like to keep them more intimate. One hundred people were less people go home i. don't like when people return to their home and they say, Oh, I feel good I. Love It. I like when they actually implement I like when they call me a year later and they say, this is what I have done as a result of. These things I've learned. Yes, and as a coaching program, all we do is help you implement. So rather than just telling you what to do. For Seventeen hundred dollars a month we help you implement with the graphic design. Photography the web development, the search engine content, that kind of stuff and the idea is to grow your company. So that being said, how long have we worked with you in a coaching relationship tyler. I, think with. Ben. A year or so a year. Okay. And do you have full time employees that work for you? I've got four. Do you have any employees that work for you fulltime you pay seventeen hundred dollars a month or less to. No. Okay, and so but that is what we charge and we do that because we always want to be an asset. We want to be somebody who helps you grow the company that being said, how much have you grown as a percentage since we've started working with you? we grew re hundred percent last year and were tracked. Three hundred percent again, this year you. Austin good. Guys at all that up but it turns out. A Lot. So you've grown your business a lot and you sell trailers. Trailers and I would like to Brag on you because there's so many cool things that you do you. You are implementing the dream one hundred system. Can you explain what the dream one hundred system is and how it's working for you their teller? Yeah. I. Mean. It's just a list of our hundred top likely. He'll buyers ours happens to be more like a thousand. But Yeah I've been sales guy who calls through that every single day He makes a hundred and fifty calls on it a day, and then we write handwritten notes. And send gifts. To them and we send them free. Product that we have. And they respond with why are you doing this And we try to explain and they just don't get it but it works and what is your website again one more time. PREMATURELY DOT COM. Promo. Trailer. Dot. com. Jason I. Feel like maybe I'm incorrect. I feel like a lot of entrepreneurs previous reaching out to us think that because they have a great product, it will. Sell itself? Yes. Into those people I like to say nobody wakes up with a burning desire to buy your crap and I hear this all the time the people say my product is so good. It's so good. And they want to focus on the product but we got up. We have to generate sales to, which means you have to call people you do not know. and to share with them about your product, and it can how many calls is your guy make today teller. The minimum of the hundred but on averages about one hundred and fifty. Yeah. So you're calling people you do not know and telling them about what you do. Or Yeah. The same people every month. The same people. We make it through the list on average once to twice a month. So they get a call from US almost every other every you know every three to four weeks and do you gather Google reviews? Are you are you? Are You doing that? Well? On the path I make a path and a plan for every client and I'm sometimes befuddled by people that reach out and one a plan, and then you give them the plan they don't want do the plan but I I hear you're doing the plan. Are you actually getting reviews from happy customers? Every single person who buys Trailers so those form tried to stir their trailer for their warranty and we call them and. You know ask for Google Review we get one to two a week. I The Breakfast the relationship is so great because. We've made a plan right? Tyler Tyler wants a plan any executes the plan? Yeah. We're talking about becoming proactive intentional people on today's show. He's doing it It's so cool I love seeing you Dr Brek, implement your systems since you've worked with your coach. Tim. Can you explain Dr Brick? How much have you grown in the past three years as a percentage? Well, we've more than doubled and one of the most fun statistic I'd love to throw out there is in June. We actually were up by ten percent over last year, and that's with covid nineteen craziness happening So you know not only have we grown, but then we've also weathered some incredible storms and even showed growth ten percent growth where we're already busting at the seams. We had ten percent growth in June while people are are scared and crazy and and July has continued on So yeah, I'm excited for the future and getting into A. New Space, and exploding even even further there isn't Nathan your company complete carpet. You guys have grown quite a bit. How much have you guys grown in the past to ms two and a half years since we started with coaching, we got pretty close closely almost touched the four-time mark this year. So we're still sitting about the three and a half times since before the coaching and we have had the same results that Dr Brecca's head is that this year we even with covid in place even with a little bit of dip in March, we've actually been up month-on-month all the way through this year. So we've been able to grow in the middle of this The pandemic that we're going through by using good general business practices tell her what's all this stuff that you offer? Well, kind of what kind of products do you offer? Just, treat you two aluminum utility failures and what time is. Five by. Car Holler go to his website. There's some pretty cool pictures on here about the trailers he can do they're really awesome Primo trailer, dot, com, Tyler, what Times your weekly coaching meeting. Tuesdays at seven am. In, are you typically on that call? every week unless some fun fourteen circumstance happens. But yeah. So it's interesting because I said I would call you at seven thirty am central on Sunday. And then that's what I did and that right there is where the relationship gets weird or it gets great. Great divide is it if the kind of person that cannot keep their appointments consistently? CanNot Be. Successful. In Tyler is a very consistent person. I want to ask Tyler a question in brick and they have a final question here for Tyler. So here we go. Tyler. What is wrong with you? I mean you show up on the calls at the right time every week I mean you've gotta be rejecting other people who are trying to call you at the exact same time. Andrew reports you're focused on the during the meetings you you're not taking calls from other people. Andrew reports you're focused. You're enthusiastic. You're you're committed. That is that is just it's just. It's It's it's weird. What what is I mean? How do you do that because a lot of people struggle with that idea? You know I just have goal and I'll do just about anything to reach us. And I've seen the value in the coaching. So. That's Kinda put the coaching up there in my top three things of do not miss each week. I just can't say enough good things about tyler in the level of. Diligence and commitment and focus. He's put into this Brek you a hot take. Well, yeah I mean I'm missing something or tyler. So I need to know what is what is your secret to these amazing trailers because you guys are up by nine times from where you were So what what are you? What is the the the nuance difference that makes your trailers so much better than everybody else's. So. Familiar you are with fabrication but. We just. We took a different approach to the trailer industry. Then what's been done for the last twenty years? Okay. So my father owned a trailer dealership. So I've been around these trailers. So I learned what was good. What was bad and what people lights and didn't like and we just sat out and said, hey. We want to do something that no different. So we take wild, we use a look. You know we use premium airline grade aluminum we you know we all these expensive things. We make less money per trailer, but we make a nicer trailer that seriously when people get it in their hands or like. How how do you make this affordable? So we just give up with a system that made a better trailer. Liberated. Quicker. and more affordable. So so it's not just. Nine Times better product. But there's other aspects that that have allowed you to grow even further faster. Exactly, I mean our whole system from the top down designed. To be counter. To what is typical? In all the best ways see you're doing things differently in the right ways. You. I just keep it up. I just telling somebody out there. It might seem mean it might seem terrible. It might if you were even in this room today, you might have seen what happens. But I am an indestructible focus force and I will not let anything distract me at all from that thing true right and when you're in the meetings with your clients and they are focused to it is awesome because I'm not asking the client focused for four consecutive hours or forty consecutive hours. Jason? I'M NOT GONNA client to stay focused for three consecutive weeks on the phone call. No I'm saying for one hour power. Sometimes, the meetings are thirty minutes sometimes they're in our. But Jason if I if I could send up a prayer and I could say. Jesus could by the way there's power in his name. If I mean this sincerely, if I could just have one for my clients. please. Glance to be on time with their meetings. Into on distracted during those meetings. Because it would help them so much. It's a personal decision thing have to make the decision. Jesus has given us the capacity mental capacity in the mental tenacity needed to stay focused but there's distractions all around every. Jason you've got some great clients to all of the great clients not show up for their meetings. All of my best clients especially stuck around the longest show up every single time every single time they're they're they don't take other calls it's not like Oh hold on have another call coming in or sorry can you repeat that I was reading something else? They say, okay. What are we doing today? It's just it's. It's so antic. Somebody focuses. Knocks out there stuff it's beautiful brick you work out. With a partner that wants to talk to you about geopolitical issues while you're doing curls I honestly I'm not a good workout partner. That I can work out with consistently and it it works out great because out 'cause. Yeah. My intensity goes from like you know I've been told I'm kind of an intense guy at times and I go to like twelve when I'm working out like I don't even like me So we're not there to talk to talk I'm there to get it done. Yup. Tried to go into green whole type of mentality. Yes. Tried to pine with Coming across this room gonNA fight right left. Okay so tyler, what would be your for anybody who's considering our coaching program? You've been around as long enough to know who's a good fit? WHO's not a good fit you probably have family members where you're going don't call those guys you probably. You probably thought to yourself. Because people will ask You Tyler What About Your coaching program do you recommend you might be thinking? No, do not call this because there's other people that you would recommend what kind of person is a good fit for the coaching program and who is not The right person is somebody who's willing to put their ego aside for growth of their business. and. Like you said willing to show up and then not just show up once a week but. Actually do. What. Is told. So I know a lot of people who have too big of Egos for their business that they get told. That that's not right thing to do. You know they'll just often. Not even try it. That's not the right person. I just I are people that have reached out to me in the past. hoops that I really want to be a coaching client. As, recently as yesterday. And I talked to the guy, and he says, why can't do weekly meetings because every week's different for me so But I. But I WANNA be a client, I'm GonNa well, that's very core thing. That's like me hiring hiring a personal trainer and insane Jason Could you work out for me this week I got a personal trainer helps me get in shape, but could you could use your body body for me because my party is busy? Could you use your body for me? That's what it's like when you have A. Guy Wanted to hire a coach and then he says, and then could you just work with my marketing people? It doesn't work that way you have to actually be there. I think break you had to take you into share something well, one of the things I wanted you to consider you guys have thought about having maybe an employee of the month award. You know and I. I'm thinking about this for myself as well. I need to consider making sure that thrive time is eligible for that award because as you pointed out clay. You are the the lease paid employee of my team. Yet bringing a very high value for that pay So like you talked about the implementation like with my if you had said, hey, these are the things you need for website and these are the the the issues with Google and getting Seo and being canonical, compliant, and mobile compliant. All those things If you had told me that two and a half years ago when I started coaching likely wouldn't still be done. But you not only say, Hey, these are the things that are important and we're going to do them. These are the things we are going to do for you as a client of ours So that's part of where my goes is to be able to to do those things that a I'm not going to do I can take it off of my to do list but you actually make yourself a very high value employees of my company and I think that's very true here for Primo, trailers for. Complete carpet cleaning for so many people that are listening right now. The value you get out of the coaching is phenomenal. I would just say this if you're listening right now and you want to grow that business. And you you can't afford full-time team or maybe it was me I just expensive I've done it before you're gonNA pay five grand a month for one graphic designer what five grand a month for a video augur for at least five grand a month for a web developer. In God forbid, if either one of them if anybody got sick or they couldn't beat, you need really need two or three of each of those skills some redundancy there and I just I. We have a great service that helps one hundred and sixty wonderful people and I, mean this tyler. You're one of our our one of my. Favorite clients based upon what I hear from Andrew about you and I just appreciate you being so approachable and diligent and. If anybody out there listening and they wanna buy an aluminum trailer do you sell all over the country or just phoenix or who can buy these? So we sell through our dealer network and we are getting dealers I, mean we're growing so fast working one to two new dealers every week. So by this time next year, we'll be in every state and every Providence and candy in the United States. Do you have a dealer in Oklahoma? You know we actually are about to Intel are. Just going to have to check out only stylish. I'm excited. How cool is that? Unbelievable? Unbelievable, Tyler. I had a question for you. The shows here who started in twenty twelve is that correct? Yeah. So I actually technically started back in high school I went into pre engineering design, these trailers listening project. When Tour for my dad and welded up the first one myself. And we incorporated in two thousand seventeen. So fast forward. What was it that you? Saw You could you talked about being humble going to the coaching? What was it that you saw you're stuck at the coaching really helped you to rocket you into this new growth. A lot of it was just structure and guidance I to be honest I've never owned business before. So I wasn't really sure what to do the right thing to do. And the coaching ICE AUSE and up it's wireless the podcast I like how do I avoid making mistakes and how do I focus on the right thing to do. So I. Don't know where. Coaching I probably would have made a lot more mistakes and I definitely wouldn't be where I was but. Putting that structure in place for me so that I can put in place for my company was huge tyler. I cannot wait for you to hear we're interviewing Dr Judy Mike of its next week. Taylor who she is. Hong. Little. Vo. Now. The best selling author to America Right now, her book is called plague of corruption. And she worked directly with Dr, FAUCI? And when she told America, who he really is. She had to go hide in a boat because they try to send people to get her. And she's now. Out of the hiding and she her book is endorsed by Bobby Kennedy who actually is you know JFK son and it's has got a great story to tell and all I can say the truth is coming to light and have you follow this Epstein Thing Tyler have you seen this? Oh Yeah I follow. Yeah. Yes. Just yesterday. The documents released from the Epstein Investigation Epstein is the most prolific pedophile in. American. History and Jeffrey Epstein yesterday the documents released that shows that Bill Clinton went out to Epstein's island multiple times we probably shouldn't trust them and Mr Dershowitz the attorney who tells everybody they have no right to not take the vaccine he happened to go out to pedophile island and it couldn't get better it is exciting and the guy who's Kriton the vaccines that we all should take. Mr Bill Gates turns out though he's very close friends with Mr Epstein and we probably shouldn't take a vaccine from a man who hangs out with prolific pedophile. I cannot wait for the truth to come to light. So stay tuned tyler for the interview with Judy. Mike of its she is a legend in she sacrificed her entire career and throwing her entire crude on the toilet to share the truth and I'm excited. So stay tuned my friend you'RE GONNA, love it.

Padre challenging the dodgers this week the padres one on Monday the dodgers came back on Tuesday in the final game of the series was yesterday Aj pollock got the dodgers going. To.

From Charley Steiner am five seventy. La Sports some of the dodger players talk afterward about how they were surprised at that news. Well here come the Yankees week ago we were wondering if they were in trouble and they are now on an absolute role with a lot of their stars back in the lineup DJ Lemay who is streaking down the stretch. Paul, feel peas Yo pack still backs see. Another homerun of make you it is a two run blast. And the Yankees are going downtown on this Wednesday in the bronx at six nothing bombers. Lou Boy was part of the onslaught. I fly ball. L. Back on track diesel. Point this. Year but three run shot it is eleven one you. Mike. Okay and the yes network. But the star of the night was the guy who is become the personal catcher for the best pitcher on the Yankees Garrett Cole. And the young right enter Hector Perez Neil Swung on and hit in the year two right and that ball is gone into the right-field seats over the auxiliary scoreboard the seventh home run of the year and the third homeowner the game for a Gashi Oca- the home run store Roca. And getting piggy with. John Sterling Wfan at the end of the night after the US beat the blue jays thirteen to two New York now, a game and a half of head of Toronto. The Yankees would be the number five seed Abbas as of today, there are three games behind the raise the top of the American league, east, the cubs, Furlan, and control the national league central. They beat the Indians again in hobby are bias seems to be getting hot it exactly the right time and the own to pitch by lines. Down, the, left. Breaking? Back, just long enough and lying it over the head of Ramirez the cubs, the ballgame. John Lester pitch for the cubs and he spoke afterward about how emotionally it was depiction Wrigley field. It might be as last start as a cub in Wrigley field. He has been worth every nickel since signing that six year one, hundred, fifty, five, million dollar deal with the cubs after the two thousand, fourteen season the twins in the white sox the final game of that series Byron Buxton had another moment. And he swings swingset that one. It's at high near center field might have a chance Robert Jumps up it's gone. A two run homer for Byron Buxton. Twins like that leads three to nothing. That from Dan gladden on the Treasure Island Baseball Network Oakland one yesterday and in the midst of that a crazy play by Vanderbilt Grad. Tony Kemp. Bounces one and for Wednesday's. Third throw is high and now in a rundown, his kill. And they're gonNA tag Marcus Scipion he's out to throw to the plate and Kathy say Unbelievable. So mark is. was out as marcus trying to get to third. So it was almost a disaster for the as. A ridiculous play by Nolan air not a wine. Gets to throw off and now got walters but he sees semyon he's GonNa tag him and now try to get Kip at home which they had but Tony Kip incredible athletic Yeah. It was kind of a Ninja move their Taylor. What you? What did you think? Yeah. A lot of jumping around back and forth kind of like. The other night grabbing home just by his fingertips. I. It was. It was pretty nifty. They say Kemp Kinda. Weird on the broadcast there I noticed that as well Kim. I did notice that now. I. Have to listen to that again. Yeah.

There isn't ESPN analyst and he played thirteen years in the big leagues and one of the cool things that they learned about this year is that all these jerseys you are collecting, it's been brought up A. Broadcast can give us some details on that. You know and I was surprised that a lot of these are from this year which raises the question like in your whole career, how many jerseys you actually own? Not a lot that's the funny part You know I never really collected jerseys or anything from the bus going but this year this season, it's just different were at home where the studio, where not only do we Are we the analysts? We also do our own makeup. We also do our own settings we prepare the backdrop my wife is. An integral part of it also and I'm fortunate also that you know fanatics has been as said, yeah, you know we're we're trying to promote the game any which way we can. So all of a sudden comes three boxes and three boxes, full jerseys and their disused jerseys and it's it's awesome to have. So what I try to do is Every game that if I'm doing, let's say yesterday the phillies. Mets game. Well, let's put on all their jerseys and all their alternate jerseys and everything and and put it in the black backdrop. Any character that we can we got some some pretty cool character is a little baby. Yoda's all over the place because my wife loves baby Yoda. So They act they had the accent somewhere in there and I think as the season goes on in in the playoffs, it could even be a lot more fun to see what I do back there. Tell me what was the Jersey that you got your most excited to see. the baby blues awesome. if you look at the Toronto Blue Jays Baby Blue One, that's that's a great one Yeah. The Kansas City royals have them to and so do the Phillies I can go down the list of cardinals you know but the Brewers they the colors the yellow that with that dark navy tight blue on it they do really well, the padres uniform sick The lettering fonts are huge So that's that's a really cool one but I think the one I got the most emotional was when was clemente for comment today I'm able to get that Jersey also so now I have a twenty one that'll probably be around most of the season in the backdrop somewhere that twenty one will definitely be present. It is It's exciting to have because It's a well-deserved thing that we've seen so many ex players in so many players used retired twenty one and having been raised in Puerto Rico having played and see People Rohit. Sports. City Roberto Clemente and Catalina growing up and now in the conditions that it is and we need to bring that twenty one to the forefront again to see of Major League Baseball continues to is efforts especially after recommend. That you of. The widow of Roberto. Clemente did so much for him. even forty eight years after. We still have to keep his name going. I would agree and I do think that we're moving toward that day when they retired twenty one in perpetuity. The way that they did with the Jackie Robinsons forty-two we'll see about that. Yesterday the padres lose again to the dodgers Fernando Tattoos Junior is not having a good September and I. GotTa Tell Ward, Oh and and Taylor back me up on this like early in September I basically when we talked about the national yen vp race was nets over like cat teach juniors it's basically his to win. The only way that he could possibly lose now is with a complete collapse. Well, you know what? is a complete collapse I was looking at fan grabs this morning, they get wins above replacement Freddy Freeman is now tied with tattoos junior in wins above replacement at two point nine mookie betts is a two point five Manny Machado two point four Trade Turner Mike Stransky Trevor Story Michael Conforto fall after that tattoos junior in September one, eight, four average to ninety three on base six forty Oh ps his oh, ps overall has dropped almost one hundred points since the beginning September. It surprises me because he was so dominant for. So long at this moment, who do you think you would vote for if you had a vote? That's that's really interesting and that's what I was always telling people I was like hold on, wait a second everyone's like this is the best player in the game. I'm like it was only a month you know that he was doing and let's not forget an entire season. We're looking at a six month process of doing it this year to sprint and s just like the records where we see a good week where would see a good week we can also see a bad week and it could turn. Turn on you in a hurry and now I see I see mookie Betts continuing to Since he was putting that leadoff spot you look at the PS right there over over nine hundred and the high nine hundred you look at. The motto work that he's been offensively defensively on the faces he's gotta be a top Freddy. Freeman. You're saying that you're also bringing to the forefront I. think that was the biggest question I was having with Freddy, Freeman skids crews they're going to have behind him and his marstellar Zuni going to beat the guy that can protect well Barcelona. Got Hot. He got hot. It allowed other allowed pretty freeman to to relax and say, okay, I can pick my spots 'cause they're gonNA spill pitch to me even though at the beginning of the season, we saw that they were pitching around him and Marcel turned it around and made pizza pay and and and that's one really interesting guy and situation right there in Atlanta because they're pitching since Mike Sirocco went down. I You got freed on the I L. Freddie be in an Kunia went on the I l. up they're both back but he's been the mainstay ever since he had tested positive early on in the season for code that he said, I'm present. Let's go. Let's get this thing done and he's shown why he's one of the players Paul Goldschmidt is another name you gotta take consideration especially with what has gone on Louis. Would you it sounds like you think that mookie Betts will eventually emerge as we come down the stretch. Then I do I mean again the team over there but you know when cody bellinger's started off cold mookie betts as has been there since day one he's been consistent It's it's nothing you look at you like really what is the what is he really done that? That's spectacular. That's must watch the consistency the model of work right now for him has been has been pretty special. Right among the National League teams, the Three Division leaders at this point seemed fairly sturdy especially after dodgers take two or three from the padres these are the teams at this point according to fan graphs with the highest percentage chances for being the wildcard teams, you got the Marlins at seventy, eight percent phillies and cardinals at sixty eight percent giants at sixty percent reds at fifty two, percent brewers forty four percent then drop down to the mets and rockies nineteen and twelve percent among those teams, Marlins, phillies, cardinals, giants, reds, brewers, mets, rockies, which those teams in your eyes is the most dangerous because I have a strong feeling about this among those teams, which is the most dangerous. Awhile if Sonny Gray would have been. Okay. Okay. That's that's where I would have gone because of their depth I. think you know you have a power sunny great situation but I think what you had taken consideration now and a lot of that. No, this is the three consecutive days of playing in the wild card. To have that that you have to have a pretty strong bullpen for this type of of a playoff scenario and I don't fault feet on the Marlins. I just I love the fact that they have. The Way Rogers stretch. The Way I've come has come back from from his Co. situation, and then you have six Sanchez also in the mix with the bullpen with the arms if they had they had that that thing why not us they have that chip on their shoulder they went to most of them went down a lot of players testing positive for Co that they've gotten their feet wet they've been. The they've been the team that was supposed to finish flash in their division. They were the team that was supposed to not make it because of of the the corona virus, situation, and yet they continue to play. Well, Don role has is a fantastic job at shortstop even coming back from covid situation that got starting Marseille just don't fall asleep on a team that finished in the pack. Twice in the made the playoffs twice as wild card payment. Oh, by the way buster. Both kinds of ninety, seven and three. Managers is you know what do not like dealing with those personal catcher situations because it makes for some uncomfortable conversations but the Yankees are now in that in that place Garrett Cole is last restarts, Kyle Gass Yoka. In those restarts, twenty innings, nine hits allowed and were runs. For Garrett, Cole in reminded me of that time when the dodgers broke apart Clayton Kershaw AJ Ellis has been his personal catcher for so many years and I talked to a GM of another team who kind of befuddled by that 'cause his lying to me was you know what? If Clayton, Kershaw like pitching to his uncle I? Let him do that Feel same way. I feel the same way with Garrett Cole, like it's it's going to be a topic of conversation because Gary Sanchez is the number one guy there they've talked about being the number one guy but you paid all that money to have Garrett cold front end of year rotation and Garrett. Cole has been nothing but gracious and talking about Gary Sanchez but the bottom line is to me if this makes him better than go with it. Right and let's not forget water pros catching correct matic thought also I mean. There's there's many ways of looking at this. And you are on the money I think especially with the situation that we've seen here with a sprint and Oh, by the way when he hits three home runs in a game, I'm not take him out of the lineup the next day and I know Gary thanks to God and his opportunities this year but he's been pretty pretty loss at the play. Even, though in the last game, you hit a home run he went once before on that last game we play, but you got stanton back on the situation you got judge played yesterday right field You gotTA show their base for big boys are are are not getting back into that line from the aisle and what you have to do now when gains. So much anymore about what have you done for me pack? This is the stretch drive. This is important. This is this last week is like going into September first right now up again, in your division or down to gains in the division to the to the Toronto. Blue Jays, they can turn an. In a hurry to the Tampa Bay rays excuse me. It can turn in a hurry in. That's why you have to play the guys that are producing We're seeing it with the New York mets they're trying to get back into it worst Peter Lonzo. He's on the bench he's not playing they're going with the hot hand dominic met. So the same thing happens when you have a battery mate. He goes she okay. Garrett Cole and their tone while he's putting down the numbers and he's blocking everything and yes again, three jacks. He's GonNa Catch. CARE. Coal. So. Yes Bony. So yesterday we had Brian. Carl ravitch on the PODCAST I, wanted to listen to your broadcast last night, but I live in the New York area. So the game is blocked out. That was kind of a bummer. But I I'm assuming that is you talked to through that game the conversation came up about what's going to happen next for the mets with new ownership Steve, Cohen, who's going to become the richest owner baseball in Raby actually have. been. To find out. Okay group work. So Ravi had this really interesting idea yesterday when I posed the question, what advice would you give to Steve Cohen and he said you know what I would do I would call Brian Cashman and do whatever it takes to get the general manager who has succeeded in New York for twenty three years so right away. Attack the Cross town rival in try to get Brian Cashman over to your franchise and I hadn't heard that, and then I thought about more afterward and Nino there's actually an avenue through which the mets could do that, and here's what it is in all the time that Brian's been an executive with the Yankees he's title has never changed. He's always been general manager. Will you know? The mets could call over to the Yankees and say we WANNA make Brian Cashman the president of the mets or the president of baseball ops or whatever it is, and that would be an interesting I and I gotTa tell you the more that I thought about it boy that would be a lightning strike right out of the game. Yeah. That would be in in I had not heard your conversation with Carl with that did not come up but that's exactly where I would have gone with I would pay Brian Cosmonauts it here. Hey, just like just like Andrew. Freeman just like Mike Shapiro with our with the Toronto Blue Jays, you want this is what you're going to do. You're going to have to me that title President of Baseball Operations. Move up move on forward, and then you're GonNa have to pay me a pretty. the success that he has had in the city and we all know one thing about Steve Cohen. He's got the pockets. He needs baseball people there right away. He needs that credibility the money not only. It's not the only credibility factor. You have to have the knowledge, the experience of New York I'm one hundred percent with Carl and I would not be surprised one bit if that happens at all I, mean we've seen in the in the New York Post. We've seen in the in the front where they've already said this is this is It's it's he's GonNa make an impact and He's done it in the business world and have feelings going to do it in this type of business was time baseball business world.

Jason Been Eddie's the play by play man, for ESPN, and for the Chicago White SOx Jason quite simply white sox the best team in the American league right now because that's what I'm hearing from evaluators around the sport. Buster, it's it's outrageous. What what some of these guys have done to help build what what feels like the deepest lineup in baseball and we knew that there'd be thunder offensively but the pitching staff over the span of twenty, two and six as we talk right now as the best in baseball as well, which you know to be honest with some of the names in the in the rotation that people know that's pretty surprising to. Who Do you think would be the American League team that's the biggest threat to them. You know what I? To me I think the Tampa Bay rays understand strategy and understand playing angles. I mean we we both were there at the wild card game. Last year in Oakland and Tampa Bay built a lineups Pacific -ly for Sean. MNAYA and so I I think Tampa Bay smarts is one thing but I also think like you and I were talking about this on k. B, O, the other day that the Yankees Berry probably, you're still not GonNa win the alias but they look real terrifying right now I don't think anybody wants play the Yankees at this moment now especially with Garrett Cole seemingly getting on a roll you know that that that completely alters the look of them in your eyes right now who's the American League? MVP? That is such a tough question. It is an it's really ridiculous for white socks and think about the fact that to their guys are leading candidates for MVP you for for the American League. I think Tim Anderson even though he missed ten games I think Tim Anderson is probably the guy he said zero. Zero hits twice in September he's had at least three hits five times in September east played a much better defensive shortstop this year I I would say and you look if you look at the socks offensive numbers when Tim Anderson scores a run just one singular run I would say he has been the guy and if you talk about most valuable, he's been that guy who's infused energy into this team really since what happened with The dust up with Brad Keller in Kansas City. Last year, he has just become the self actualized version of himself. It's awesome to watch on a nightly basis I tell you what his trajectory is fascinating to me because you know I'm sure you do the same thing with me when you hear about a young player who's successful in the minor leagues, the first numbers that I always look at our walks and strikeouts 'cause then you. Get a sense. Okay. How aggressive is this guy? You know what's his level of patients and Tim Anderson at age twenty five in the big leagues thirty walks a hundred and forty nine strikeouts to forty batting average to eighty one on base. Guys like that. I. GotTa Tell You. You know typically I look at those numbers go okay. He is what he is. He swings a lot he's never going to be disciplined enough to. To necessarily be a great player, he's not really going to give himself a chance and yet he's gotten better and better and better, and maybe you know it absolutely fits history. You know he was not some superstar prospect in high school he got better and he got better and he got better and that seems to be what he's doing in the big leagues again hitting three seventy three with a four ten on base percentage this year. Bus A conversation with Tim early April last year, and he talked me through the nuances of what he learned in the offseason about how to watch video and how to attack a pitcher and he said this the other day and and it's one hundred percent true in my experience with them he is obsessed with getting better on a daily basis he learned that. That having a routine is one thing but having an obsessive routine is another you watch him playing shortstop. Now he's creeping behind runners at second base. He's climbing in the batter's box when he needs to swing the other day that he adjusted and SORTA straightened out his body in order to hit a high pitch in his own, he told us in a post game. Interview the other day on our telecasts with the white sox that he felt like he was seeing a lot more to seamers and so he had to adjust to hit the ball to right field and most of his hits recently have come to right field off two seamers. The guy is a really smart baseball guy and I think it's it's a fantastic story. For young people out there because you know how it works quite often when you have a young player who was a basketball player who happens to be a black player you hear people say he's tools he he's athletic. You know maybe he'll be a center fielder that sort of thing all the narrative that comes along with that scouts bite nowadays with the understanding of. What race means and things like that. Tim Anderson is one of those cerebral baseball players out there and I don't think anybody would have dared give him the credit to be to have a chance to do that. It has major league career and I, gotTa say it is it is chalk one up for crazy work on yourself and self self-improvements that it's it's really fun to watch. You know what's interesting too. I was looking at this a lot of times when you see improvement in young players these days the first thing your first instinct is is that they've gone the launch angle route that they you know have gone and found a hidden guru and they're just focused on getting the ball in the air. will his ground ball rate is at the highest of his career two, point, two, five, two, one, which is an. High number and his hard hit rates all. So advertise thirty, nine point four percent in his career, and so I suspect and I covered Tony Gwynn for for three years I could just imagine Tony Going Yep just hit the ball hard does mattie hit it on the ground hit it in the air just hit the ball hard because that seems to be working for. Yeah and you know it's really interesting. I was just looking at this last night after the night game into the day game today. The socks are tied for seventh in Ground Ball Rate Ofensive ably in baseball. So it's pervasive across the team that the best home run hitting team in baseball also hits a bunch of ground balls and I think the answer is exactly what you said it hit the ball hard wherever it goes but then the other components of that is if something makes a really good pitch on you, you have a couple choices. strikeout take it or really try to hit hard and I. think that has that has Swept over to the white sox and I think Frank menaquinone deserves a lot of credit. I had heard a lot of great things about him in AAA from guys coming up and saying, Hey, really locked in with him and and I think his understanding of just how to hit the ball hard has has gone through the the socks. Certainly reflected in how Tim Anderson's playing this year I Jason Good Talk With You Sure I'll be talking with you soon. Thanks Buster. Bleacher tweets. All. Ready. Buster bleacher tweets Thursday I up Simon Harrow at Simon J. H. Rates in high buster when MLB and the players negotiate is there anyone at the table who represents the integrity of the game always seems to be about money only keep expanding the playoffs for twenty twenty one means most of the regular season is pointless. Thanks Simon in Hong Kong. Thanks for listening on the other side of the planet. Simon. Yeah I appreciate that Simon look you what you raised is something here in a lot from from from executives at the team level where they're like okay for two thousand and twenty in this weird year and a short season they get it but the idea of having sixteen teams in the playoffs next year and not really having a big reward for winning division during the year day are very much against that and it'll be very interesting as you move forward if that conversation manifest because there was a lot of pushback and there's a lot of reason why the player should be pushing back because as I was hearing yesterday, there's not. A lot of incentive for teams to try to get better you know we saw that at the trade deadline, the padres were active. The reds are active to some point but a lot of teams didn't actually go out and make big moves and in the same token by the for the same reason this winter if you go into two thousand and twenty, one believing that hey, it's a sixteen playoff sixteen team playoff field and there's not a lot we need to do to necessarily get better or to separate ourselves or to give ourselves a chance at a playoff spot you're not going to be aggressive and that has some agents concerned as well. Interesting point. Next up, we got Ray Lewis at ray underscore Lewis sixty-seven rates in. Hey Buster lots of talk about real muto for the off season. But how James Mccann? What do you expect his market to be this winter? He's put himself in a good position three seventeen average six homers three, seventy, six on base percentage. We've been talking about J. T. you know maybe the the mets again Balmy the phillies maybe the Yankees James McCann is GonNa do well He's not going to be the primary focus of the catching market jt will but mccain set himself up to be a strong number two. And, last one day. John. bueller writes in at jbl nineteen. WHO's the most surprising team this season maybe the white sox are padres and contention for one seeds, Marlins or giants in the playoff hunt or brewers or national so far back another team maybe what do you think is the biggest surprise for you the season yeah, John. I'm not really surprised at the nationals took a step back because we've seen a hangover effect and one Strasbourg goes down random leaves is a free agent. It's not close to being the same type of roster for me no. Question the MARLINS. You know it's a young team They don't have a lot of proven guys and then they had that outbreak they were the first team to be sidelined for awhile and so the fact that they're in this position, that's means the biggest surprise. What about for you, Taylor I think I'm going to go marlins to especially with the emergence of Sixto Sanchez. He awesome to watch I know it's only six five six games in or whatever. But he looks like he might be a gem for them for a long time to come. That doesn't for Bleacher tweets everyone. Thanks for writing in Hashtag bleacher tweets on twitter.

Our new book switched on Pop. How Popular Music Works and why it matters at your favorite bookseller thanks and you're listening to SP nation at the super bowl? We are pleased to be joined now by the Brightest Dallas cowboys mind kind of both sides of the Mississippi host of the Wilkins show. I don't think it surprising. We'll caine thanks for joining us. I radio what's up. This is the most the most excited I've been for any interview. You have done on this entire radio. This is the one I wanted to do. My Man. We're big fans you it'd be the love is all there. We've always appreciate all the love you give us. Mike McCarthy thoughts love. It didn't start that way like most love that lasts. It's earned right at first. My first reaction was. I'm not excited. I wanted something sexy. I wanted something. That taller caught my attention. I wanted to urban Meyer. I wanted Lincoln Riley but as the days passed by a number I think it ended up being something like two or three we days. I got really excited about it because my McCarthy I don't think he's ever gotten the full respect that he deserves his resume. When put next to coaches that we all agree are great coaches and perhaps Stephen Hall of fame coaches? Sean Payton Mike Tomlin. You had the Sean Payton Stat right there with them one super bowl. Same winning percentage roughly for the regular season. Same for the postseason and yet some reason people discount McCarthy because he played or had Aaron Rogers on his squad but everyone of those guys had a big time quarterback as well. What do you think it is? I I mean if you had to put a taste to it. Why do people praise Sean Payton? And kind of like pooh-pooh Mike McCarthy I think it's I dunno I guess maybe the saints have like a sex your vibe to him you know what I mean. People just WanNa Fall in love with that and Sean Payton has dislike smoldering not even like physical traits. But like he's he's the guy who's going to kick an onside kick you know what I mean. He's got this wildcard elements in the McCarthy just had to the sharpie behind his neck. Have you ever seen no dude. He he used to keep like a sharpie on his cap. Like in the adjustable stable part right right right and it would cause he would use it on his place. Whatever and they would mark next and a game like all sorts of Mark's so like that's like Jay Glazer called Altima grunt and I think you've got like this grunt versus the G. Q.? Model sort of things. Do you see that. I know exactly what you're getting at Sean painted G. Q.. Model but I know what you're saying it's not necessarily this. Physical appears in his person. Exactly so there's two reasons I think McCarthy doesn't get credit one is just what exactly what you're saying personality counts for a lot for better or worse in life my McCarthy's just kind of boring. He's just kind of boring. That's your act against him. Where Peyton says things a goes forward on fourth down onside kicks it in the Super Bowl motions on on the side? You Know Vikings fans right before. His team blows a playoff game. Carol's charming has his self help. Stuff looks like a players coach. You can fire you up but Mike McCarthy's boring. Yeah so that's one. The other is well different than Tomlin. Different Carol different than Than all the others. Here's my McCarthy's all World Hall of fame. Big Time quarterback threw him under the bus right win battle on that toll McCarthy I agree the and I remember when when Jordan Rogers is on the bachelor and I remember that was like this turning qualified and I think Aaron went on like the Ringer is when bill had the the. Hbo Show and he went on. That was the moment I really turned on their personally Not The twenty four team division around. It wasn't it was that Arizona's where I didn't traumatize like there's something else. Do you know because it was like. I'm not a big SHUG avenues. Like the night before the family visits episode or whatever. It's a Aaron clearly really want to get out in front and just kind of talk about his own you know starts because his family. That's been talked about a lot but I agree with you. I think everyone Aaron is also I think going to be better than all those guys right. It's not just that. He's a hall of fame quarterback. He's the best one if we did that. And we said Hey. Who's got the better hall of fame? Candidacy drew brees. I love is everybody. Vote Aaron Rodgers. I don't I don't know that they would I so this is really Russell Wilson's path. I agree probably add up to more than what Rogers ended up with. And so he's. I was so excited how to do this. Let's look at Aaron Rodgers playoff trajectory. Okay two thousand nine loses the Kurt Warner cardinals. Okay fine not gonNA knock that whatever two thousand ten won the Super Bowl okay. Is there a lot of the two thousand eleven one seed fifteen and one lose at home to the giants. Nobody gives them any craft for Wednesday. Vp Whatever two thousand twelve. Well the beat. The I believe Christian ponder lead Vikings Before they got bounced by Cavernous Forty niners and the next year they lost cabin expires at home. And then twenty fourteen beats the cowboys on a weird play. Goes and everything collapses in Seattle. Two thousand fifteen kirk cousins redskins and then goes and loses To the cardinals and that Crazy Hail Mary game whatever so my point is like the Wednesay has outside of the Super Bowl are kind of hollow. You know what I mean like Jason Jason. Aaron Rodgers is greater than star team. That's what I'm saying like we tell him he's. He's beaten the guy in Jason Good that we both agree was not very good. Look a win is a win and a loss is a lot. But he did beat Jason Garrett on a Y- I don't know what I can't remember what adjective just us. But it was an amazing play and doc look Dak Prescott played him. You know dueled him head to head in that in that playoff game and he makes an amazing what was third in twenty seven. It was painful. And what do you think the irony of it all the now. It's Mike McCarthy and he was the guy who delivered the final blow before Wade Phillips got fired. Like that's just insane poetry autry. I got. That couldn't happen to any other like it's just Kinda hard to picture Mike McCarthy as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Yeah like. It's hard to envision I. Nobody does the photo shops. But I can't see him in the Navy we've right and I mean the color not the branch of the armed forces. The I can't remember who I used. This analogy one of the guys perhaps in your community. But it's so good the the thing it excites me about this and this isn't logical but just the analogy is too cute. It just reminds Muzak Martin over Johnny Manziel just really does like nobody. Got Excited about ZAC Martin. None of us and yet we ended up with an Hala fame all pro level guard for a decade versus a flameout. Mike McCarthy is kind of nobody gets excited about it. I'm just hoping it doc. Plays out the same way. I also think agree with you and not to say that urban Meyer or Lincoln Riley would be the Johnny Manzella coaches in the NFL. I think part of it was we I. I was so excited to track flights like I was I was so ready and sell Pompton. I had all these like pre rights ready for a different head coaches or whatever and then like it was over. You know what I mean. It was it was it was over. I mean like I feel like we didn't really get to bite into you. Know what I mean. Yeah but that's I mean. In retrospect aren't you glad they jumped all over it because I don't. I Know How that coaching those coaching Domino's would have worked. I mean everybody hired their guy. Quick Right. Matt Role took that Carolina Panthers Job Quick. I think it's interesting the way they're they're not necessarily selling this this guy all along etcetera etcetera etcetera. But obviously this is an incredibly important decision to make for the future of your multibillion dollar company and you let this dude go out and interview for other jobs while you might just sit on your hands. You know it's not like you were in the play offs a busy. I find that to be fascinating and I don't know that they should be killed for that or didn't like it. I should probably. I don't know if you remember this by the process doesn't make sense. You're right if if he if he was your number one guy exactly what you just said. Why'd you let him interview with so many different other clubs if he always had this guy targeted why did you let him interview with other clubs if he blew away in the interview review? If that's what it is doesn't suggest the interviews really important you should look to interview. Some other is so it never added up to me. That's all behind me now. All in our hyped. We've got Mike McCarthy Tattoos and everything So Yeah Tony Polygon recently did what did you think of his I was GonNa say utilization but I would guess lack of utilization because I also think like how do you justify taking off the field. I mean we can talk about the contract forever But like it's I feel like it's a mental block like Like if it was maybe I can't Zeke after feel like it'd be I feel Chris. Yeah that's the curse the blessing of riches there because I think they both need to be on the field. I loved it when I started running to running back set Tony Pollard. And but the main thing is because that introduced unpredictability. I want more unpredictability in more embraced a lot of unpredictability ability with pre snap motion. And all that the main thing about the cowboys offense for a better part of a decade is that everybody knew what they were GonNa do down in distance analyze that we knew they were going to do and so did the defense and and now Tony Polar just another tool to be unpredictable. Where's it going to go? I love him corporation more but also wants on the field does that thing Z.. Z. Calls out sometimes. Glad we have Tony. I can't figure it out. Why zeke's tapping his helmet raising his hand? Sometimes I agree I think Tony Pollard's like Like you when you go to a restaurant you have like that other fork. You don't like I don't need this one hour four. Yeah the the main four will work. Fine I'm not I'm not bothered events dressing on it or whatever but so that's who Tony Policies but I also think tony part is time Montgomery for playing McCarthy that about a lot lately I mean like you know he was this receiver. It is Kinda skinny guy and that worked but he didn't have Z.. You know to kind of compliment him. I WANNA get your thoughts on this before we move on to death. I WanNa say this so one of the things I've tried to do is just try to think about new ways to have a conversation that can be interesting or push. Something forward in. The bell was a free agent in seemingly garnering very little interest. Trish we already had Zeke. He was on his rookie deal. And I remember bringing in Tedy Bruschi and some other guy saying hey. Nobody's talking about this. But what about like the idea of the cowboys signing lady. I'm bill the lamb. Why would you need to run a pair them and what I said then was well first of all? They're both versatile that can both catch all. You can move them out until you're forcing defenses to always be guessing what's going to happen here at Ron as it passed. Who's it going to so I do think and by the way once I got Tony Teddy headed down that path? That could put some defenses in some interesting positions. Maybe Tony Pollard. Could be a guy like that. Like maybe you're listening to what you're saying. He could be motioning out in the slot. More could be you like what the forty niners currently are like Matt like on Nas. You know what I mean like seized whatever but okay so there's a lot of cowboys fans and you know this this better than most that are like when you move on from Jason Witten when you stop with these golden color and the same people like a will we think about. This isn't without weird. It is weird like do you have you had all that yourself entertain the idea purely at a nostalgia. Yes or or or and then maybe afterwards. Do you reach a party. Like that doesn't make sense okay. So this is my thing. I love value like one of my favorite dudes to study and all of well. Everything News Finance Sports is Warren Buffett. Warren Buffett doesn't say I only invest in this company this kind of industry. He's always looking for value. What's being underpriced? Jason Witten is not being underpriced. That's important I. It's not about how long he's been here. Or how much does style. Just I just don't think Jason has a ton left to offer on the field. I don't know what he's offering in the locker room so I have to consider. That's part of the value Dez though could be like a value. Like what would this cost. And he's a mystery like what has he been doing. I see the videos you sitting on the floor catching the ball. I mean I mean there's a little bit of me it's like could you get a diamond in the rough on a really affordable price at this point with Dez and I don't know so I thought for a long time. It's been a long time that that the cowboys we're we're trying to pick up a lambofield on that January day in Twenty fifteen like that was the way they were constructing drafting. Zeke was almost like we're going to get to go right back to that exact spot and it doesn't work that way. You know you you have to do everything to get there and if you build a team for that specific moment I mean you're forgetting about every other moment involved and I I think that a lot of ways like a lot of people and maybe people associate with the team have had trouble letting that go because it was really magical it was it was like a high school senior. I'd love that. You just never forget but I feel like that has held them back and limited them and like I think going out and getting randall. COBB things like that really 'cause forever to your point it was desk transformed called Beasley and that was it. Because that's the way it wasn't just the offense was just be better than the defensive back stronger fast got out. Got Your Chaz Green. GotTa gotta be your man no matter what the situation and I don't want that this is an argument against as I wanNA route runner. Who is precise making the exact right run with an offensive coordinator? That's putting defense in difficult positions to make it as easy as possible on deck. That's what I want. Here's a here's a more adding more difficult wide receiver question I was seeing Brian. Brought US brought this up. Do we pay Amari. That's a fascinating is exactly what we just talked about. I mean a precise great route running. Yeah I think it was great for deck although he disappeared from time to time. If Michael Gallup is like people are talking about like maybe he is a number one wide receiver. Maybe you Transition Condition Tag Amari just to get through this year. Whatever because I agree with you and I don't think saying this is not meant to indict Amari but you should and not doubled down from the perspective of fresh Dante for? We have to pay him. You know what I mean like. You wanted a vision. You had a good time. You know what I mean like. Yeah it was a big price to pay for some small but you do not. I'd have to double down because you like to say double down implies that Amar's been bad and he hasn't yet. I have found a fascinated. The team has pushed the narrative that he no. He wasn't hurt. He wasn't her. There was nothing wrong with him. Obviously contract here but that has been really really really interesting that Kinda get to this point. Yeah and I don't I I think in the end I would have a hard time walking away. I have to pay him are in the end. But if you're being smart business that has a salary cap and has to manage your finances you do have to go. Oh well in a deep wide receiver class this draft with the guy and our roster who people seem to think could be even better than we've already seen. Do you pay this guy last thing for you will one thing you want to see from the Dallas Cavs offseason whether it's on particular free agent or maybe like one position. I want to go get a big defensive tackle. Whatever one thing we'll canes wishlist for the cowboys to be honest I don't I don't want a dodger question? It's okay you can dodge. It's already happened. Oh I just it's it's we have a new coach and by the way I think it was time for a new defensive coordinator very new defensive philosophy sophy. I think this roster has been talented enough for several years when it all. I don't look at the cowboys roster and go. Wow it's missing things. These guys assays. Were overrating the talent drive. We're not overrating the talent I think we've had a coach and I think Jason gets a good coach but some and you say we'll shouldn't a good coach bring great talent to higher level. I just think you need. Coach brings this schematically and in talking with him about the other day. I think Jason had a philosophy and I respect it like the whole process thing but I don't think he had conviction in living out too because like if I feel like if if the cowboys fan community complained about him being conservative the next game he was going for it on fourth and one on his own thirty already. Yeah they were constantly trying to lug holes on a sinking boat like this all the way and people will follow you and hopefully. That's good enough to take you the other way. Yeah and for a long time. That was the guy that rallied them up. When when the going got tough it came up the crap out of the eagles? You know what I mean but I think that just just fell on deaf ears and it was time but listen. I read read almost every day on the site. I love what you guys do is one of my favorites is to visit my mom always. I'm there there. Will Cain show. It's available as a podcast to if you're on the go. Oh but record this show three to five central India Radio and we'll can also on the block and the all the time so okay appreciate an extended time.

Johnson I'm honored to call a friend entrepreneur whom I deeply admire and look a man who paved the way for. So many of us who are passionate about making our world, a better and healthier place and creating this is a brands that do just that. Today. We'll be discussing his new must-read bestselling book titled Conscious Leadership. I think we could all benefit from conscious leadership right now, and there's a walk for us to learn. So it's great to have him back on this podcast. John Welcome thanks Jason Good to see a good to be on the show. Great to have you back one of my favorite guests. I. Think this is your third or fourth appearance always always a fan favorite. Here we love whole foods market and we love everything you've built there and we love your books. And Got A new book title, Conscious Leadership and I'm curious why this book you certainly don't have anything to prove. You've written numerous bestsellers founded whole foods market. Why this book? Trying to prove things when I was in my twenties and thirties. My sixties now. So I'm not really trying to prove things anymore specific good question. Why do we write the book really because conscious capitalism came back we published that back in two thousand thirteen really proud of that huge impacts change people's thinking a lot of ways and Thing. Is it's that's theoretical book and. We've had a lot so many questions over the last several years about how can I be more conscious leader? We talk about that. You really can't create a conscious business if you don't have conscious leadership. So that well, how do you become a conscious leader and we have a couple of chapters in conscious capitalism, but it's not enough. People were hungry for more. So it's like this was like the sequel conscious capitalism. because. I'm very passionate about if you WANNA have conscious businesses, leaders have got to be more conscious this how to do it? This isn't really this is a how to book because we have so many different pract. Every chapter has practices in them. It's it's like we have to develop our inner being in business in particular it. So task oriented every, we have a to do list we got a bunch of appointments and meanings and we just Bang Bang Bang. Bang Bang. Lee Very little time for the development of our inner self. It's such a outer self business calls forth. But yet to be a conscious leader, we have to develop the inner self and this book is kind of. From for business people in for leaders, how to develop the inner self. So I, not without giving away the whole book, how do you define conscious leadership? What are the qualities of a conscious leader? What is conscious leader look like what is conscious leadership look like? I mean, that's the. That's a good question and we get asked it in my first answer is well, we wrote a book to Kinda. Give the death. You did everyone should up the book but in a sense in a shorter version, a conscious leader is a leader who simply. More aware more awake more. Conscious of purpose in love and integrity in in acting in win, win win ways concerned about servant leadership and stakeholders. Seeking to learn and grow continuously building better and more awake teams, it's Those, those are the key elements, but the key thing is. They're just more aware more self aware in the more empathetic towards others. So what's build off purpose purpose is a big part of the book. You've got this great quote in the book from Roy Spence. The founder of the purpose institute, which is don't ask kids what they want to do when they grow up, ask them what they loved to do. So my question to you like it's so simple is beautiful apparent I think of this all time but like we just get it raw like what are we get so wrong when it comes to finding our purpose. I think one thing we get wrong is that we think it's like. Finding finding gold or berry treasure somewhere that you're gonNA search and you're just gonNA. have it. And Have purpose and that may happen for some people but generally purpose is something that develops over time as we do pursue the things that we're passionate about. we come to discover a purpose like let me give an example like my own life so. When I was twenty three years old and a student at the University of Texas Austin I moved into a vegetarian co-op, a living a like a communal living situation I wasn't a vegetarian at that time. But what I was I was very interested in all things counterculture back in the nineteen seventies in Austin Texas so I moved in I met super cool. People became a vegetarian. Food Awakening. I had no real interest in food until them but then I learned all about natural organic foods I became the food buyer for the call up. I learned how to cook. Then I went to work for small natural food store and I just deeper I got into it the more I loved it in the more I. loved it the more I wanted to get into it and I remember I came home one day from working in this natural food store back. Oh, my girlfriend renee was there and I guess at that time I was. Twenty three and Rene was twenty or nineteen. Actually she's four years younger than me. and Said Hey Rene what do you think about if we open up our own, you know our own small natural food store. and. She just thought that was the coolest idea she said. Let's do it. That'll be fun. In, so she was passionate about this as well. So did we opened up a small store back called safer way back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, eight. And And then it was like I want do a bigger store. So we relocate US toward I was on my path because I was I was doing what I cared about what I was interested in what I was passionate about but the more I did it deeper got so it wasn't like Vala found my higher purpose in some ways I'm still discovering it even all these years later forty two years later I'm still discovering it because it's still deepening. So I think the key thing is is to follow your heart do the things you care about, and they will guide you to find your own personal higher purpose in life. And something else you talk about in the book, which I think is important to important point to make specifically in twenty twenty Purpose in profits in many people's minds are mutually exclusive, but it doesn't have to be that way. Right right. I will probably talk more about this as we get deeper into the conversation, but that's a very binary interpretation of life which I have to say I think most people think in sort of these binary terms of its good versus evil it's your winning and losing if you get rich somebody, else's getting poor if you're succeeding somebody else's failing says very very binary interpretation of life and I don't think that's a very good framework to to think about life because it's not binary, it's far more complex systems. thinking is far better metaphors. Today that things are integrated together. We think about a system like ecosystem it's complex. You've got all you've. Got Water Cycle. You've got to oxygen cycle. You've got soil you got microorganisms and plants and animals. They're all They're all integrated together. You have the cycle of life and it's complex you can't understand it. In, a binary framework can only understand it but about the relationships that exist between what we think are separate parts, but they're not really separate they're they're connected well, purpose and profit or not opposites they're not like binary if you make. If you have purpose, you can't make profits have again a purpose there. It's clearly there you can have both and you should you should have purpose and you should make profits because if you make profits, you better fulfill your purpose, maybe don't make profits. You probably won't fulfill your purpose and if you only care about your purpose and don't make profits. You sort of are off track and if you only care about profits but don't care about purpose off track, it's gotta be else. Yeah you know if you have purpose but you're you have no profits, you almost lose control of your purpose because you're forced to make decisions to keep the business alive, which sometimes aren't often the best decisions for the purpose but you have to the lights on payroll in all those choices you have to you have to manage both simultaneously that's not I little complex system. And it gets a lot more complex from there. To manage profits you gotta manage you've got to create value for customers you have to have team members employees, and they have to be happy and flourishing because they create value for the customers. If you're a retail store, your, you have suppliers producing thanks for you that you can sell and they have to be flourishing as well and investors you gotTa keep happy and communities you're part of it system and you have to manage that entire system. So there are a lot of people out there know who have purpose lot of a lot of people out there very, very intelligence very commercial. If you will yet a lot of people aren't you know success successful commercially I'm curious what is it? What do you think separates those who quote unquote make it if you will and those who don't, and I'm curious how you I know you're big in this isn't a binary question like making it versus not make different not by narrowly I know. But I also like how do you think about that like in terms of how do you define success and what you do what do you? Think separates those who who are able to You know talk talk about something and and really make a go of it versus those who just talk about something. To bid. For Noor First of all successes in in is defined differently right. So it's not just financial success is successes fulfilling your purpose. You already put it out successes about creating value for other people. In business context. That's what frequently misunderstood. Success is not about maximizing profits successes about creating value for other people and profit is is is A. In a sense of by product that and because people voluntarily in relationship with each other, they're voluntarily changing for mutual gain benefit. So if you are creating value for other people than that, probably could result in making money, and if you don't create value for the people will not make money your business will ultimately fail. So you gotta get that priority right but in terms of success when I think of success. I think of it as a much more in a much more comprehensive way because whole foods is purpose driven WanNa purpose to nourish people planet were also restored holder oriented. Want Oliver stakeholders flourish all of them to be successful. We want our customers to be To sell healthy food to customers to to that they. That they're happy that the food nourishes them that they enjoy the food tasted. So they'll come back and buy food in the future and because it's an end in itself, we want we want people flourish and be happy. we know that we can't do that unless our team members are also flourishing because they're the ones that are serving the customers. So team member happiness is very important team ever happiness to grows as one of the core values with whole foods. So they need they need to flourish as well and our suppliers. Business tens of thousands of suppliers all over the country increasingly all over the world and they're trading with. US. Voluntarily, they need to be successful flourish too because that helps us to be successful in. A very proud of the fact that so many people started out at whole foods we were first. People ever sold to than they grew great example that more recently is. Vital. Farms, eggs, we were there I I people they sold to and It just went public valued at one point four, billion dollars in the entrepreneurs become very successful and wealthy and. Now we were they would have probably done that anyway but we we were good launching pad for them that that makes me. Happy. So success I measure success in all those different ways value that reading for all these different people's. Customers. Team members suppliers investors in the community that were part of we should be socially responsible and care about our communities and try to try and do right by them. So when you think of the individual I'm curious in your mind you know what? What? What's the magic blend of you know E. Q. I q grits purpose like how do you think about that? That pie because we do have a lot of people in our in our audit, a lot of people who are. Hustling and and looking for success in their own definition and. There's some will say some of it. Are Entrepreneurs are they born or are they made of this curious like how you think about that? I think that human diversity. Is extremely complex in that there's a simple formula that like you can plug in play, right? It's. Because people are different. Some people you know they get it as you say through Gret incredible perseverance. Others regret. Strategists may distributor out kind of a winning strategy in play and play the hand there. Others are very emotionally intelligent in they create great relationships with people they build trust and that. Gets parlayed into success so there lots of different ways to approach it, and there's not one right way I will tell you that ultimately in business it's about creating value for other people and if you can't do that, then you're not going to be successful I, mean you take your own business mind body green you guys are creating value for people because they're listening and they're and they're they're participating in many different ways with this brand. And you're helping them to have better lives and fulfil their. Their spirituality their health or wellbeing their mental managing stress. So you're creating value for people. That's why you're. That's why you're there. You're members in your customers, and if you stop doing that for them, they don't have to continue to trade with you or somebody better comes along who does a better job? It's like well, I want both and. This other one sustainability. What I want. So competition helps you to get better and improve or people imitate you in pass you up. Sure. So value creation and however you do that. There are many different ways to do that. But it has to be done. That's the one thing that has to be done so. What of you learn about yourself as a conscious leader. In this process, you start off the book talking about a very humbling moment twenty twenty or so years ago where he thought you were going to potentially lose control the company let you down this process and what have you in this process learned about yourself of John Founder founder and CEO what what I do well, what I don't do well and how I think about that. Again. That's. That's a long question. I mean. Forty. Two years data. What I can tell you is was that. I've learned a lot for my mistakes. and. I think that's a strength I'm I'm. I've made a Lotta mistakes, Amman embarrassed or shamed admit that. I learned from them and I get better in the last chapter. Our book is continuously learning grow life is grand adventure. That's how I conceive of life. Life is his grand adventure and we can learn grow the entire time relied learning and growing just for children. It is for everyone and it should never stop because you finish school or got your masters European whatever lab finally I can stop learning because now I I've arrived. And I've just continue to learn of continue to learn ever since I didn't personal I came I started the business with a bit of an inferiority complex because I had no business background I'd never taken any business classes in school I studied philosophy and the humanities of all types. So when I started out I I, my resume, I always make a joke that true but it's funny my my resume read something like this Busboy dishwasher boys can't counselor. CEO Whole Foods market. I just didn't have that kind of experience I worked for a small natural food store for a few months. Let's add that in there. But I didn't really know what I was doing in either my girlfriend her resume was dominoes pizza delivery. astro world. A Whole foods market right I mean when she start when we started out safer way to market. So because I didn't know anything I knew I didn't know anything in so I. Read everything I could find I read hundreds of books. I anybody that I think had any business knowledge I sat at their feet, ask them questions what about this? What about that and when something wasn't going? Well so I got my dad mentor me I was just a sponge soaked up knowledge and then and then even so I still made autonomous steaks. and. Fortunately, none of them were fatal I didn't I didn't drive the whole foods bus clash although I probably could have few times I always was. Had A good team and I had a good team. I'll boys had a great team and the team. It's why road chapter in the book on it constantly evolve your team because. If you have a good team then. You'RE GONNA probably they're gonNa make you look good. If you have a bad team, it's if we use a sports metaphor. No matter how good player you are you can't win in basketball by yourself got to have a good team around you. Same Baseball same in any sport. Nobody's a great enough to win by themselves. So you're no better than your team's. Hey everybody. Thanks for tuning in. We're just GONNA take a quick little break to hear word from our sponsor.

And now back to the podcast. So does it come down to self awareness a work self-awareness on how good you are self awareness on learning near mistakes is how how critical self-awareness? Critical. But I want to repeat it doesn't come down. There is no magical formula. and. There's also an element of luck. Let's not sure you know meet the right person at the right time. One of the great things why whole foods has been successful is frankly we got into this business early. We we not because we saw it had this huge potential. And it but we caught a wave that we help create the way to a certain extent but natural organic foods was nowhere back in in the middle seventies it was a whole new of hippies were doing it and that was all it wasn't in the mainstream at all. It's just a bunch of counterculture people and they were doing in mainstream America completely wasn't interested in it all. So self-awareness is very, very important because self-awareness is how you develop emotional intelligence social awareness. You have enough with social with. Self awareness you can also develop humility because you see that you don't know everything. You see that you make mistakes. You see that other people smarter than you than you should be shut up and listen instead of talking So Yeah, self-awareness I've met many successful entrepreneurs who aren't that self aware. But they generally eventually drive off the cliff. WHO Takes him off the cliff eventually? As they think they've got the MIDAS, Tachin nobody does and If? You don't have humility in self-awareness eventually, you're GonNa your ego is going to. is going to ensure that yourself. I agree So so purpose you know something purposes something I'm not sure that I have a lot of purpose calling and I will joke we've got too much purpose that overtakes sometimes and and we joked and I said this to you. For this reason, we don't believe in in work like balance. We think it's not realistic and we like the term work life integration which I know we'll talk about that. I like that too. I remember talking to this guy in many years ago. Got Him Jack Stack who wrote the Great Game Business and we went out to dinner and I was I raised the question with him about I mean Jack, how do you do your building this business and you got the again like seven kids and You know you're you're consulting with all these other businesses and How do you Juggle And he says, I don't. I can't juggle it. It's impossible I just do the very best that I can do every day knowing that to a certain extent I can't balance it. I can't keep it in harmony. But what I can do it is I can follow it sort of passionately. And I care about all these things. So I because I care about all these things I do care about my kids I do care about the business I do care about my marriage I do care about my friends I care about my health so he basically Would just do the very best that he could do knowing and what that means is. You'RE GONNA fail. In, you're gonNA, have little failures all the time you know there are some days I get zero exercise Ned because I had to get to the office early and I have to work late. So no no exercise but you know what? I'm conscious aware I did not exercise today I can't do that every day and so then they'll be other times while say so I'm not GonNa take that meeting 'cause I'm an exercise tomorrow morning to make sure I get along walk and do some yoga mocking to neglect my meditation. In. So then I, you know I. The Gut schedule at a different time. So it's it's about managing. It is best you can knowing and not being overwhelmed. It's very important that we saw it comes down to something you're in control of your own life in your own time you make choices. And be victim, take responsibility and make the choices that are right for you then. Sometimes. It's right for me to go travelling and sometimes I feel travel overwhelmed size jar Ternan stuff down to I think the word harmony and integrations better than balance balance reflects all this trade offs. I think about a seesaw. When I think about balance, you know one goes up with down. You're not getting anywhere. You're just going up and down. And when I think of immigration, I think about moving forward with all these things moving forward together. We're they're all advancing, not just trading off. Endlessly. So what do you do when you have a bad day or a bad velvet? What's what's your? They happen what? What's Your Go-to? So. The real trick is back to self-awareness because we all go unconscious at times as you say, we bad day bad day in is almost a definition of going unconscious. Because you go into a reactive state, you're no longer. Conscious you're no longer in the moment you've had some type you've got angry or fearful or. you've got lost in your thoughts stream in, so you're no longer fully awake in that moment. Here's the thing. You just gotTa wake back up again you gotta you gotta catch yourself and There are many ways to do that. You can set sometimes I just set my watched beep every hour. So that, in that, our the that beeping I within spend thirty to sixty seconds just centering myself breathing. Mindful Meditation to be fully aware of the moment so I if I can remind me. But. What happens as you practice? Catching yourself when you go back to sleep. When you when you get into reactive emotional state, you just get better at it. Any skill the more you practice the better you get at it meditation, you get better at it, the more you practice it so. I catch myself but I do go to sleep I do emotional react I'm still on a journey I am not fully arrived where I never say angry things or get scared or like you know I do it but I just don't do it as I'm not as unconscious as long as I used to be. Sometimes I can catch myself in the moment. It's like there. I. Go again I'm a reactive fearful space. And I can snap out of it just like that. So it's a skill is get better at it, but I've still not completely there all the time. No one's ever there all the time. I don't know they might be but I'm not. So. Something you touched on earlier. I WANNA come back to Talk About Sports Metaphor, sports metaphors select winning losing. But you talked about this at our revitalize that people loved it. I. Love it the concept of win. Win. Win. Well because in sports or war or most of our Darwinian metaphors, it's win lose survival survivor die survivor go extinct it's back to binary and win win win is not binary. Win Win is actually the essence of what businesses businesses one of the if we were conceptualizing businesses a game and I don't think it is. It's better thought of as a win, win win game because all the stakeholders can win nobody has to lose and when the problem is stakeholder theory has now penetrated in the mainstream, but it's being warped because people are trying to apply win lose framework to it. So it's like well, investors have been making all the money. And now, through es G, we're going to rectify that we're GONNA make sure that that we get employees get paid more and we're gonNA make sure that. The unions get their share in that in that Social Responsibilities GonNa Habits, day. That's all based on this trade off thinking. It's all based on investors losing. It's almost like I, feel like people are sometimes grinning at last greedy bastards. We're GONNA take that money away and redistributed to the other stakeholders. That's completely misunderstanding stakeholder theory and stakeholder theory is about managing the system to optimize the entire system. So it's not herb or prophet the purpose and profits rightly understood investors should make even more. As, should all the other stakeholders you're working to optimize the entire system to simultaneously create value for all of these participants? That's the great game of stakeholders rightly understood and that would businesses about there's a reason why? Two hundred years ago for almost all of history people have been incredibly poor. This do not know their history just going back two Hundred Years Jason Ninety four percent of the entire planet lived on less than two dollars a day ninety, four percent matched adjusted for today's dollars think about that ninety, four percent today at two, hundred, ten percent. Ten percents still too high but that's a heck of a lot better than ninety four percent. The illiteracy rates two hundred years ago where eighty eight percent. Eight percent of the people alive couldn't read. The average lives famous thirty. O'Gara now it's seventy, two, point six and the illiteracy rates are down to. About twelve percent. So he's made tremendous progress in it's primarily been through business. It's primarily through capitalism because that is created because it's a win win win gain as it is it has been the genie got out of the bottle with the industrial revolution as regulations began to at least temporarily lesson it we broke forth with this wave of continuing prosperity Gaines yes. some people got more money at first but. On the long-term if I was used to test I already showed you the biggest one which is. Poverty is being rapidly eliminated on this planet, and they're probably will be eliminated within a gross poverty in the next. Thirty. Forty fifty years we won't property will be something. You'll see only in museums. As MOM UNISYS set. So, that's a win, win, win game and. If, you reached Steven Pinker Book Enlightenment now which I think the most important book written so far in the twenty first century you he just completely shows the progress of humanity is made or read Hans Rustling book fact from this I mean humanity is making tremendous advancements and that's when win win. It's not win lose. It's not somebody getting rich and somebody else getting poor humanity is collectively advancing and that's narrative not told because people are so pessimistic they think the world is about to end people were so gloomy but the evidence in the factions statistics tell a completely different story, but you have to know your history to really appreciate it. So Outsiders will say whole foods. Amazon Different Cultures People were surprised by the merger. It's a couple years later. I'm curious like today in twenty twenty you know, why do you think it's a win win win that relationship with Amazon and a, and then part two is were were were whole foods traveling. because the world is changing very rapidly and groceries changing very rapidly, the natural is changing very rapidly. The first part of the questions pretty easy. Second Card is hard because I'm not GonNa talk about future strategies to companies you to do because that's give me give me something. I, I'll give you the I'll give you the answer I'm GonNa give you right now in it'll. It's. It's the truth. and. In the future people are going to be able to get. Whatever kind of food they want? Whenever they want. Wherever. They want. It. At a price that they're willing to pay. That's going to happen basically GONNA. Get anything you want whenever you want it wherever you want it. At a price that you feel is reasonable, that's where we're heading. So how are we going to get there will vary tremendously and that's the part I can't tell you about. Future Strategies are. But in terms of the win win win Amazon. So people might I use the marriage metaphor. In reason why it's a good mirror metaphor is because it was voluntary, we came into voluntary agreement. And we didn't because we both thought was going to be beneficial both we wouldn't have done it. And it's win win win because I think it through for all the stakeholders and I tell the story in the book in the win. Win Win Chapter. I give in some depth how we how we had met Jeff as A. In in why would be a win win meeting with Jeff and then how the whole courtship happens I give into some detail because it's a good story. So. It's a win for H.. One of our major stakeholders our customers have benefited tremendously they've been the biggest beneficiaries has done three significant price reductions. And people are going to be very slow to let go whole paycheck hopefully, just always going to have high quality. But we've done three major price reductions regatta fourth one that were working in the middle of launching right now. so Whether people conscious of it or not the. People shop with us. We're getting much better delays to get before and because if you're a prime member. You're getting free delivery on all your groceries. And I can tell you delivery is not free. Delivery is actually quite expensive but you're getting that as benefit being a prime member in about seventy five to eighty percent of our customers are prime members particularly our core customers. I'm one of them just look at by account I. Take Alien Advantage of that. Are you getting a lot of deliveries. Oh God you should look at my account. You. Should. Probably losing money on you. Oh, you definitely are sorry job. So That's been a win for our customers and has been a win for our team members well less than a year. After this merger Amazon announced fifteen dollars minimum wage for starting pay anybody at work the company including whole foods. and. Because if you If, you already working for the company you've been working there three years and you gotta raised in your working fifteen dollars an hour. And now somebody who'd been working there for thirty days got a raise to fifteen dollars an hour. You wouldn't feel like that was very fair. So it's not so much that we raise the paid people fifteen dollars is that we had to raise everybody up. And so we gave about ninety thousand people raises. and. So a huge win for our team members and we still have our all of our benefit structures in place Amazon has has not tried to change your culture. Now, whole foods has changed somewhat, but just like a change in a marriage change, not because it's been crammed down our throats we change because. We're learning things and I would say that I was kind of a joke I. Ask when when people and I'm talking to people in I say. So how many of you are married? And you know most people raise their hands and I say, well, how many of you changed since she got married got married almost everybody raises their hand in the few that don't I say those of you didn't raise your hands are probably not going to be married that much longer. Because in marriage you do change and it's just natural because we learned from our partner we try new things and we we get. We just change. It's just a way of nature of things. If you don't change, then you're not really respecting the person you're with you're not you're not making any. Compromises, you're not trying new things that that person can introduce you to combat the question why the heck you to get married in the first place. So. It's been beneficial for our team members. No question about plus some of them have gone on to work for Amazon. So it's giving them other offer job opportunities as well. It's been good for our suppliers. That's one of the things media has been critical of that just because the media makes stuff up and wants con, watch controversy. Is is very committed to local that hadn't changed Amazon hasn't changed that and. It's been extremely good for for thousands of our suppliers because whole foods has been a springboard to selling Amazon. Amazon. Now, all of our sales obviously and Successful suppliers are getting on the Amazon network in now Amazon's opening up physical stores Amazon fresh in lot of a lot of those products will be migrating into those stores as well. So definitely good for our suppliers good for investors. Our stock was trading at Thirty Bucks A. Couple of months before we started Talkin Amazon we sold the SOLTA TAME on for forty one dollars. So that's about four billion dollars, extra money investors, and good for our communities because not only has not Amazon not try to change our philanthropy. They've been very supportive of our foundations they've been they've been generous and and So I mean it's been it's been a win Win Win Win I. AM everyone our stakeholders one they've you're better off now than they were pre merger. So. You know going from, you know starting as a small natural op to going public to seeing the merger through one and where we are in twenty twenty How do you think about your legacy? I don't think about my legacy. And you'll. I I can explain that in very simple because with a with an analogy or metaphor I remember reading a biography I can't remember the the artist name, but it was A. Picasso or or somebody rates are in they were asked him about his legacy and he said. Yeah. I don't care about my old pictures. I care about the pictures on making right now. That's what turns me on. So legacy stuff done in the past. What I'm excited about is what I'm doing right now, one of going to be doing in the future because that's where the creativity is and that's where the fun is. The Fun is in creating maybe when I'm like one, hundred, ten years old I'll be dead most likely. But when I'm really really old, I will be thinking back about the phone that I had relationships were built in. You know maybe I'll I'll be proud some of the stuff we've been complex. But truthfully right now I'm having too much fun. Working on saying stuff I'm working on work I'm working on building the future not reminiscing about the past. And so. On a personal level we. A mutual friend Dan Buehner who we love his, we love him. We love his work with blue zones and something you talk about in the book. So, many popular diets out there. We've had all those people on our podcast, you sell those products at whole foods. There's everything in the reality it's it's so simple. Can you talk a little bit about how how you your philosophy on food and the simplicity of it which you know in my mind needs to come to the forefront must come to the forefront in the context of covid and the obesity over the epidemic and prediabetes and all these things with used to be. Mailman Sat Let's deterioration over time but now can kill people and just how you think about nutrition what we need to do there and your philosophy and simplifying it if you will. It's actually it's very simple I think Michael Palin I wanNA give him credit. I think Michael Pretty Much said it all in simple formula. Eat real food. Mostly plants not too much. I mean it's right there. Don't eat. All processed foods would have sugar refined grains, a lot of oils. Or Michael, also said If it's a plant, eat it if it's made in a plant don't. So we should be eating whole natural foods and we should be eating mostly plants because really that's how we all leading mostly plants. That's what our great ape such with chimpanzees, and the is do and that's And so whether you're I'm personally. Dan, and I are both bought boats begins and client base but I the whole diet book which I wrote I said. Based on the balloons and other evidence eating small amounts of animal foods consisting with good health. There's ethical question there but that's a different question in terms good health that's consistent with it but mostly, it's going to be a plant based Diet may ninety percent of your calories from plants and but coal plants. So you're eating lots of fruits and vegetables and I. You. Can Eat almost any diet. But if you just eat lots of fruits and vegetables every day. You'RE GONNA probably be healthy. They supercharge the mansions. Will you know what's interesting on one hand? Twelve percent of Americans are metabolic healthy on the other hand ninety percent of Americans don't get enough fruits and vegetables almost a perfect correlation there between that of all cal and fruits and vegetables. Simple I. Eat I honestly I eat mostly fruits and vegetables but no my vegetables I do a lot of starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes and squash. and. White potatoes too. But lots of fruits and vegetables that start out with a lot of fruits leafy Greens in the morning with a really really nutritious smooth. That's my typical breakfast, and then I eat a lot of steamed vegetables night I some beings night a pretty really diverse diet because I I, everything the plant food I like I taught my palate to joy every kind of vegetable which I know vegetables until I was about twenty years old I just didn't need them because I didn't taste good. But I taught myself to love them because if you eat any food about ten times, they'll start to like if. You will so it's really just get your palate used to it, and then you'd move to our really lush doubles now there might so my favorite future vegetables So it's simple philosophy. So something else I got a lot of people's minds right now. The environment. The planet. California's burning I. It's just again. It's. It's just we're almost numb to it. You know and it's we talk about a complex problem is a complex problem. I'm curious are you optimistic in terms of you? I know you're optimus but Are you optimistic in terms of our ability To to approach. Climate. Change. I am I am this is a this is something i. don't like to talk about start probably not gonNA. Factory answer we'll know it's so it's complicated I know it's got the highest it so politicized and Whatever I say it's going to be taken out of context and misinterpreted. So I generally try to avoid talking about climate change I. I'm not Ahmad Apocalyptic about climate change based on on. Everything I've studied about it, but you know the climate is changing it's real and. The trick of this thing is to. Take it seriously but without wrecking the world economy. and honestly, we should be looking for win win win solutions but I find that discussion is people are so polarized on let me give an example. So it's it's going to be innovations that solve the problem ultimately. Capitalism. That's what's GonNa. So you could see the transportation system, for example, being transformed over the next twenty years because we're got so many breakthroughs number continues breakthroughs in electrical vehicles led by Elon Musk and Tesla. But. We also see so. California doesn't as having doesn't have enough power is they're trying to move away from fossil fuels. So the dilemma that we have to face people, I WANNA face it is whether to innovation in nuclear. which can produce the electricity we need to power electrical economy. Or we have to continue to use fossil fuels and people don't like that choice guess they wanted to just be renewables. But that doesn't appear based on everything and I studied in red. It's really be a viable solution because the use of electricity just continues decline it's going to continue to climb and everything I said about how much solar and wind we'd have to build in order to try to meet it is is is incomprehensible we we couldn't do it. Nuclear. Does hold possibility there but people have to feel that it's safe. Right so somebody like Bill Gates, for example, is investing in lots of small nuclear plants that are trying to get approved that can produce energy on a more local basis. I'm not an energy expert. So I don't I certainly know we need to have safe energy. So it's a complex problem, but these solutions will come from innovations and as long as ideologically locked into a certain framework. We're not open innovation. If we just say we can't go that direction than we're we're SORTA trapped and that's unfortunate So this is a very complex problem I hate to waiting for not. Labor I should have waited. A hate on me for saying. Losers is the reason I asked is because I know you're pragmatic. I know you research this on I also know you have a deep appreciation for the Environment You just went on to tell people in the epic the epic hike he went on recently like you love nature, you spend time. You love nature you spend a Lotta time. They're like talk about the heike just went out. It's impressive. I'll be in a long distance hiker for a long time. Now at twenty years, the Appalachian Trail Twice Pacific crest trail, but all all I did this summer was I. Went with some friends and we hiked a hundred and fifty miles on the Pacific crest trail from the the border of Washington Oregon Up to white pass, which is, but one, hundred, fifty miles we went through the goat rocks wilderness, which is spectacularly beautiful. This is particularly beautiful part of the Pacific Crest trail that we were on. At possibly matched and surpassed by the John Muir trail in the southern in the in the north southern central part of California. Those are the two most beautiful places over hyped those zero two. So okay. So then I got to ask you what are your go-to trails and Austin. Raker trails and Austin. Well the trail that I. mean the the best trail is probably we have that Barton Creek Greenbelt got nice thirteen point eight mile trail that. Is Right in the heart of the city you you're getting into some. Semi wild areas. It's a nice trail. So that's really really good in that can also be biked. But the most popular trail by far is. Called Town Lake called Lady Bird Lake after Lady Bird Johnson. and. That's a trail that they continue to expand. It's a loop and you can take much the short Lupus, two point nine miles, and then they had a four mile loop and a five mile loop a ten mile loop of twenty. So It's it's. Every day literally tens of thousands of people that go on that trail, it's very, very popular. It's very beautiful. So that's that's no popular trail I happen to live. Right next to another trail my house. I can walk out my door across the street I'm on this trail call show creek, and that's my typical daily walk is I don't have to drive anywhere and that's about for me round trip on that one anywhere from three and a half to about five miles. Well. Okay. So I'll close with another big question. You know it's October twenty. Twenty. Lack, own on the world To say the least. What worries you and on the flip side what what excites you. While let's you started out by saying twenty. Twenty. Is. Probably the worst my life. I think that's I'm anybody that hears that a lot of people are going to nod their head and say, yeah, this is going to worship lots to it has definitely been the weirdest year. But when you consider that we're now two hundred, five, thousand Americans dead from Cova. The lives of tens of millions of people in the country ruined by economic lockdowns that occurred. It's been a very tragic year by any way you can measure it. Now we're coming up in this election cycle where I'm worried about civil war that both sides appear to not be willing to accept the elect they're gonna both claim fraud whoever wins for different reasons and the country is GonNa. Be I don't know what's going to happen very worried about this election cycle 'cause I don't see the win win here. Right now, it's very much being framed up as a win lose and very tribalize. So I we say twenty twenty s really sucked so far, and unfortunately the last three months might be the worst part of the. So. But that's a short term. Concern in the long run, I still remain optimistic because of innovation because of the creativity human beings we're going to continue to innovate and we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA continue to solve problems with novel solutions. We can't even imagine and our lives if we don't wreck the world with war or. If, we don't become socialist and take away innovation capital. Then we'll continue to innovate immigrate progress and humanity will it's so much better for humans today than it was fifty years ago or one hundred years ago people just don't have any perspective. They don't have historical perspective or they'd realize Oh. My God it's so amazing to be alive today. So fortunate like is amazing and it is. So I'm a long-term optimist short-term pessimist. Well. The the the the optimistic. Me will say times like this. People, reflect they go deep. They look for purpose They hopefully look to be conscious leader. So perfect timing for conscious leadership. That's what the optimistic says. I do think we got fortunate that our book is being released in a really good time because. Consciously or ship. We need conscious leaders everywhere Jason, we need them not just in business i. don't see a whole lot of conscious leadership on in politics I mean on either side I don't see it and I don't see much in government and we needed an education we needed in healthcare we need in the military way need tens of thousands, not hundreds of thousands of more consciously irs. If if we will start thinking, win win win imagined for just a moment. That we a began to try to lead or organizations with love. and. Secondly, that we continuously everyday sought win win win solutions good for me. Good for you. Good for all of us. If people began to think that way and act that way, we would completely transform the world in very positive ways. But we don't. We think in terms of win lose we're right they're wrong. Kill them in hurt them. We need one species. We're one human tribe. And we need to start loving each other and finding ways that we can all succeed together humanity needs to move forward together and we can do that that will have to become more conscious to do it. And actually that's what's so great about your. Mind Body Green you guys are about helping humanity to be more conscious match. I love what you're doing in wet white. So important in the World Bank you were trying we'll. We'll close there. We'll close their eyes take take. Thank you so much again. CONGRATS on the incredible book conscious leadership. If you're listening whether you're an entrepreneur or you're just you know looking to get better as an individual. You're looking to get better and business. It's a fantastic read I heard. You.

Bull moment, bear market

"When what was technically a brief bull market wasn't really I'm David Brancaccio after the Dow one of thirteen hundred points yesterday in the Dow rose twenty one percent over three trading days many went with the Bull Market Returns Headline Bulls. The up one bears the down one and we have to point out on a date at us. Cova cases surpassed China's that history shows. There are occasional bowl moments in long bears. The depression you're a year of Nineteen thirty-three comes to mind we're joined now by Jason Swag Personal Finance columnist for the Wall Street Journal Jason. Good Hear Your Voice. Thanks David to be with you. You know I've been saying. This is a bull market today but to some of our listeners. That may sound like a lot of bull right. Yeah I mean. The definition is totally arbitrary only means that the market is up twenty percent from recent low. You know the Dow is up twenty one percent from its low on Monday so technically people calling bull market but psychologically and realistically this is a bear market the S. and P. Five hundred is not yet up twenty percent and nobody feels good about this and and for good reason I mean. Are there lessons today? For people who see headlines that say the bull market returned? Yeah you know now is the time for reflection now you could sell and take them tax lawsuit and you can rebalance you can do a bunch of things at a time like this but You couldn't do when stocks were rebalanced like reset the ratios between stocks bonds and cash and other things Jayson Swag Wall Street Journal's personal finance columnist. Thank you very much. Thanks David Pleasure. If there is a bear it's running away this morning. The Dow is down eight hundred ninety two point four percent now the S&P down three point three percent. The Nasdaq down three point. Four percent London's footsie index is down more than five percent. After Prime Minister. Boris Johnson reported day. He has a mild case of covert nineteen but will lead from isolation last week. We reported the Big Three Automakers in Detroit or shutting down their factories until at least March thirtieth. Now some could open back up in April. Marketplace's Jasmin Garcia is here with details. Yeah Ford says it's going to restart production at a plant in Mexico on April six and then a bunch of big. Us plants the week after factories in Michigan Kentucky Missouri and Ohio. They're going to start making some of their bestsellers like the Ford. F One fifty pickup truck. What about the two other of the Big Three Chrysler extended its shutdown through mid April? But it could start up again after that. Gm is closed indefinitely and has temporarily cut pay twenty per cent for about sixty nine thousand salaried employees. They said they will evaluate whether to reopen on a week to week basis. The United Auto Workers Union is worried about any of these plants reopening. They say three members who worked at Fiat Chrysler died because of the virus or with the worries what is the apparent calculation to reopen. We'll all of these companies are dealing with the fact that car sales are down because of the virus and so they don't have a lot of cash coming in Ford and GM Jerusalem credit lines recently to build up their cash reserves. All Right Jasmine. Thank you the New York. Times is reporting today. That concerns over cost have delayed the deal under discussion where the federal government would pay about a billion dollars for General Motors. A company called Fintech life systems to quickly produce about eighty thousand ventilators for hospitals the paper reports that President Trump's son-in-law jared Kushner is a key manager of this. The deal could still happen. The House is set to vote today on the two trillion dollar stimulus bill that includes expanded unemployment insurance that could equal more than some low wage. Workers were taking home in their normal paychecks. The measure passed unanimously in the Senate despite initial objections from four Republicans worried the unemployment compensation could incentivize not working marketplace's Megan McCarthy Carino has more usually unemployment benefits replaced just a portion of workers lost wages. Not all or more of them but the debate over how that changes people's behavior flares up pretty much every time government benefits are extended or made more generous says North Western economist. Matt Noah Ditto. The concern is that it's going to lead people to stay unemployed longer. It's a basic principle of economics. The more you subsidize the behavior the more people do it and not dig dough. Says there's pretty solid evidence from countries all over the world? That does happen. The longer benefits are available. The logger on average people will take to find a job and a consistent. Finding that's gone back decades that could have some bad effects says Angela Rashidi a scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute skills deteriorate they become Alaska able to join the labour market when it is time to join the labour market but she acknowledges this is an unusual situation and Luke shafer a professor of social policy at the University of Michigan says for every person who might use these benefits when they don't need them there are others who truly do need them. I think the trade off year is that we stabilize workers. We stabilize families. We reduce housing insecurity reduce other of material hardship and improve. How Andy says that has big benefits for the economy and society as a whole as for the current situation giving people an incentive not to work might be a good things says no to a dig no benefit us all in terms of reducing the the spread of this virus. Andy says because so many businesses are shut down due to cove in nineteen. There may not be a lot of jobs available right now anyway. I'm Megan mccurdy Carino for marketplace.

Jason Day Interview

"Joining us right now is Jason day. Jason good morning, our you. I'm great. How are you guys? We are doing phenomenally and we joke around because. Well, it's sort of a joke for boomer. It's more serious for me that my wife is obsessed with Australians in their accents, so much, so that she changed her GPS voice to Stein. Yeah. So I so I hear it all the time. So by seem a little intimidated or less of a man sitting next to you. That's why I understand all Austrailia now. So if you could just say for us to make a left on Station Road can make a left on Station Road. Look at that, that's exactly what it is here all the time. I told you but anyway, it's awesome sauce, Assia. Jason and tell us about your experience at the US Open and able beach. Did you like the way the course was set up? Did you enjoy it? I did. I think they I think the USDA nowadays, I think they did a great job. They the only thing that I'd probably if nip. Picking police say, let's just make a little bit hotter, which is really interesting because the US has taken so much criticism over the last couple of years by guys on on the tour with how difficult they've set up some of these golf course, and I always talk about this way. I think you know, if you trying to shoot somewhere around even paw that, that you get volatility in what you're trying to achieve. I think you know with Dustin you know, two years ago at Shinnecock he was, and obviously Brooks by they were kind of almost running away with it. Yeah. So they tried to feel like they try to rein them back in, and then that's why you see Daniel Berger and tiny FINA shooting four onto earliest Saturday and going from nearly dead loss to delayed. But, you know, to be honest, I think they'll nervous about how the Gulf course, was shaving out because they're the Friday beforehand, and we had, you know, really fem conditions on Saturday. And I'm like, oh, this is great. And then we come back Sunday and they just. Watered, the grains, and everything e four hundred stopping on the grain. So I know we did have a little bit of a heat wave. But I think for the most part, they did a fantastic job. I think being able to, you know showcase what Gary did, and what Brooks did is what the she needed to do. Now, you have an incredible travel schedule. So you go, you know, Pebble Beach. Then you go home to Ohio, and then you're over here and you came here a little bit early to practice. I mean I, I know that this is year round for you. But I mean at any point, are you at the point of exhaustion with you? I mean, have you trained yourself to be able to deal with this hectic schedule? Yes, sir. Oh, wasn't quite I was happy with how things progress loss weight. Because obviously, had it Cutty change. I wanted to get on top of it. So I flew back and landed about one o'clock in Columbus finally got the better three and then a woke up at seven to get to the course to practice at harm. So I hit about four four hundred bowls associated lost two days, just to try and get into it. You, you are exhausted. But you kind of. The weeks alongside Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday as kind of like you get get there. And you do you practice but you can also rest, you know, and then Thursday through Sundays more of a mental grind than anything because you, you try to get yourself in contention and win the tournament I was wondering how you guys do it a week to week because all right? So here we are in Hartford and after your round today, you'll probably go back to the rain, what and maybe hit some balls and practice on the putting. And then what back to the hotel. Yeah. Yeah. Back to the hotel. I mean, we'll talk today, we'll have me Colin my coach and then stave will sit down and go over today. Then we'll go over the week. What we're trying to accomplish. And then we're just trying to set little mini goals along the way, so that we always pushing forward and then from there once a week done, it's done where onto the next one, you know. And, and that's that's a big thing is we live week to week and always trying to focus on what, what would you want to accomplish? And if we can win. Hey great, but once it's done with. Onto the next one. So when you play this golf course here NPC there's a game plan that goes into it, and is that detail. Yeah, it's detailed. So I know that's fourteen and a half to. Yeah. Anyway, twain, fourteen and fifteen hundred usually typically wins tournament, right? Seventeen one and the lowest it's ever been is twenty. So when my coach gives me a sheet of paper, he goes, okay, these are the holes that you needed kind of attack. How many under-par need apply on those halls? These are the whole that you need to kind of just get through and Pau. And then from there, I make a game plan on how to attack those holes best and what money to shoot each on to try and achieve that. And granted, obviously a lot of is due to what we have weatherwise now it rained a lot yesterday. So the conditions are going to be a little bit soft going into the weekend, but over the weekend firm up on fortunately, you only have a little bit of time with us today need, we have to say goodbye, personally, you know, I wouldn't want the famous caddy I want all the attention on me. Making his own headlights. Great time. It was great meeting you. This. Jason day on the fan.

Survivor 39 Exit Interview with the Sixth Player Voted Out

"Rob Serena back here with this week's survivor exit interview in a Linden here today on the exit interview Jason Is GonNa be calling in in just a moment couple of moments but we had a great survivor know it alls last night really fun to go you want to go back and watch the video of course listened to the podcast last night survivor note also getting can backer and they'll talk with on this weekend survivor feedback show so be on the lookout for Jason knows a lot about being on purple tribes but Purple Mattress that's why purple mattress comes in because mattress is founded by two brothers who've been technology to create purple the world's most scientific mattress was developed by an actual rocket scientist. It's not like the memory foam that you're used to purple sleeps cool it ends up giving you a zero gravity feel to work in any sleeping shipping and returns and Free in-home setup plus they'll take the old mattress away up to eight four eight eight the only way to get the free pillow to is to text thin on the line let's go ahead and patch them in Jason Good morning how are you I'm I'm I'm doing okay I'm doing okay rob doing okay I was really a little bit of what was going on at the travel council we saw a lot of whispering was council and the moments or the days leading up to the tribal council were a lot we ended with Elaine but in between there was consistent it not on- Elaine what happened was as soon as the lane pulled out that advantage and then hope that our missy was actually going to flip on a lane so but before ain't or to Elizabeth to join you vote out Aaron so at that time red and the actual vote I'm talking maybe three to four minutes the had an idol we thought that Elizabeth maybe from going to Ireland the idols but one the best plan was right then I clearly had very little say because say your best bet is that Aaron is going to stay loyal to you then you're also throwing working okay so they came to offset the four four and this was an extremely they they told us that Dean had just been blindsided on the last vote they so it's pretty apparent why there were so many fractures so immediately ah you know we took that information and we said okay easy vote it's going to be a lane but then as it's more beneficial to their game then it would be the arrogant and maybe there's other moves available there's always a thorough way there's always a third way so what happened was I was and who would be a good choice to get out realistically both then we knew were extremely aggressive wanting some wanted them to stay or to go but ultimately it came down to that I'm saying rock and roll and it looks like we're talking about Elaine we're actually talking about the plan lane on misty and the game having Mickey just voted for leaving even more fractured you and I reminded them Stephen Fishbach too much so one one of the things was when the swap happens the fire as oh the guy on the other tribe they didn't know my name calling me fish not not good good so just as molly had the great strategist but unfortunately target Ryo ranks element am and I was operating with the information that was available I said that the Mike Three other alliance members superstrong be the strength one be the one that this is what we're we did have conversations with with don't get me wrong but had I given the appearance at that time with the advantage with with the information available to me I thought my best plan was my mom would have been like I think that I don't know he was so what am I gonNa do I'm GonNa Stab Lauren in the back and then have have what about in was Dan expendable out all the four of US somebody that I wanted to go far with that I was willing to sit next to at way to learn and Tommy that I just did this one of my best the lines members and you're you're the way that it happened or to have eventually gone to that four really good question that's the best question today just to you know yeah I would prefer the way that I went out because ultimately it's basically all equates to is just a game of chance the big heads and tails up so having the six month periods the game ended we need to really collect myself and and and be able to put things in perspective talk a little bit about your relationship with Nora that we saw at the start of GonNa give you a little rob has a podcast scoop which I didn't sell any other media outlets but this so what are the stranger it is when somebody with a very similar name to her and I was like oh I knew this girl at and in her one of her ex boyfriend's because apparently their family might have a type it started really night one and it was almost like a to me and she seemed the seemingly needed somebody to vent to as well and was you know immediately targeting molly and she said she wanted molly out and we're both like and then she did so that was the start of our relationship but then not my number one or even my number or four and I blindfold challenge zero point zero percent chance Dan found and then he approached her about she admitted it was fake and just for the record I oh from I wanna be idols and if you're the caller graduates to be full blown immunity idol it's ever gonna be the caller And then we tried to put her in the blindfold the position about how the molly vote came together in terms of what we and so as I am digging myself out of my hall had I it was really a group of horry it was molly ahead in terms of okay it's GonNa be Nora and it's GonNa be close and probably what started to happen and why Molycorp People's and we had a great alliance so basically molly she people just saw her I was getting too powerful actually came in their hands and Kelly Lauren from Australia the Great Lindell from Australia wanted me to ask you why didn't you guys have missy shooting retrieval of the ball was was extremely extremely retriever she's tall players know that a rebound rebound ass yeah pretty is that there's a Gif of you and Tommy looking horrified what was happening and Tim and I were just like screaming and running away I guess Tim O'Brien devastating chicken yeah tweeting out about your appearance here with us today on the podcast next time on I know where it is Jason thanks anything else you WANNA say the the game did it necessarily show through and you really need it to read between the lines of what people wasn't hopefully I'll get them next time yeah and I think we can all say it Stephen Fishbach fault nobody next man I ever there you have it Jason Linden on the exit interview and thanks to the Jason looks like me but that wasn't the problem for him in the game he me of Rob Sister Nino let's get rid
