"Pillbillies" and a "Bonkers" First Amendment

"Do you own or rent your home. Sure you do. And i'll bet it can be hard work you know what's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geiko dot com this duma story bottom and near early campus bam buffet and then invade nessim food and around come above horror. That is a black gold texas tea. We duckie's the first thing you know old. Probably most people know that song whether or not you're old enough to have watched the tv show that early sixties song. Yeah yeah that's the battle of jed clampett is the official name of it. It's the beverly hillbillies thing all right. The reason we're playing that is because pharmaceutical executives mach their customers as pill. Billy's disparaging them in rhymes even as the company's poured pills into appalachia and opioid addiction rates and overdoses role. Not just let that settle in for a moment. Hillbillies is what they're calling in emails and stuff within the within the company. One one e mail told of jed as quote a poor mountaineer who barely kept his habit fed another rhyme referred to kentucky as oxycontin. An email showed a box of breakfast. Cereal with the word smack placed under the word. Oxy words oxycontin for kids so they were just making fun of all the people who were addicted to these pills. The company's on trial here are ameris. Bergen cardinal health and mckesson kris zimmerman of amarah source. Bergen wrote one of the emails after florida. Moved against pill mills in twenty eleven. He told colleagues. Watch out georgia and alabama. There will be a mass exodus of pill. Billy's heading north zimmerman's job to make sure. The company stopped delivering opioids to any pharmacies selling suspiciously large amounts of drugs. How many people here in the twenty first century. I was thinking about this yesterday. It's like you know. I've been using computers now for like forty years. Do you not know that your emails can be tracked. Do you not know that you should never write anything down anything that might come back to bite you in the butt. Which is why. I send so few emails. I just respond to that necessary information. That i need to respond to zimmerman testified. He regrets the email but he described it. And this is this is remarkably candid. He described as a reflection of the environment at the time. As you know it's like at frankly he has a point. And by that i mean you can you can talk about Yeah right yeah. It was a cultural and it was okay to make fun of everybody. Then you think back just just a you know a few years when it was still sausage shows that they tried to get people addicted to this stuff. I guess you could argue that. I don't know that that was the intent but they did say we're a company. We're not an enforcement agency and we're not a regulatory agency and he's right about one of the lawyers for one west. Virginia county said the mocking showed a culture of contempt for the people being sold the pills. Yeah it doesn't do that. Now we have prince prince harry getting a lot of gulf because he called the first amendment of the united states constitution bonkers during a podcast. It was talking about life in los angeles. Where harry and wife megan have settled since leaving. The uk. Prince discussed what he called the media. Free fees freezing frenzy. That's what he said freezing like there's no media frenzy and in britain. Yeah he was talking about the paparazzi. So this is what brought this on. He said quote. I don't wanna. I don't wanna start sort of going down the first amendment route because that's a huge subject in one in which i don't understand because i've only been here a short period of time but you can find a loophole anything and you can capitalize exploit. What's not said rather than uphold what is said. Never mind all that. Here's the line that got him in trouble. He's got so much. I want to say about the first amendment as i sort of understand it but it is bonkers and you can imagine the criticism online from sec. texas senator ted cruz. He said nice that he can say that the yeah just kind of the point representative dan crenshaw texas says well i just double the size of my independence day party and former brexit leader. So this is a fellow bread nigel. Farage tweeted for prince harry to condemn the usa's first amendment shows. He has lost the plot soon. He will not be wanted on either side of the pond.

Audio Bible study on Acts 18:24-26

"We've left off the next chapter eighteen if you want to turn over there. Let's go back and read perhaps versus twenty three and twenty four where we're really want to focus in on today as i twenty five. We started to get there a little bit and need to go back and developed some more things this information. You may remember that. Paul has been in the area of emphasis. And now we've got somebody else court emphasis that area of the world. There's this fellow by the name of apollo's picking up with a twenty four hour certain union policy and then alexandrine race and eloquent man. Came to emphasise and he was mighty in the scriptures. This man had been instructed in the way of the lord and being fervent in spirit he space and taught accurately the things concerning jesus knowing only the baptism of john. as you look at verse. Twenty five you have the word instructed. I may have touched this last week. That is a word which describes oral instruction there are a lot of ways to teach people sometimes that instruction is only tell someone something and this is by and large how apollo scott his information he had been taught he'd been taught. Well he tried to teach others. Luke describes him as heaven when it comes to the word spirit. What kind of spirit. He was eighteen twenty five. This man had been struck way lord and being what fervent. Anybody have a different word. Or is it firmament everybody's version all right. Well i guess is going to be the right word. Then that were fervent Has the sense of boiling over. You may have met a person at some point in life is very enthusiastic. They are in person who's passionate about something they always want to talk about this particular topic. If you compare the person to a pot of water it would be like. It's boiling over on the stove. It's calling for attention. This guy was very eager as far as the information that he had he wanted to share that information with others Some people. I think might look at this and say well we think he was baptized with the holy spirit. No indication of that. No reason for that others might think that he had a spiritual gift again. That's not under consideration. He has this high degree of enthusiasm. Have never seen somebody that was just bursting with love and they wanted to show love in some way. I mean they just felt like there. Was this loud. That was bubbling forth. You remember jed clampett beverly hillbillies the image in my mind. You know the black gold you can see the bubbling oil coming out of the crowd. And i'm not sure it works quite like that i. There's an oil fine but you think about that or you think about a person who has engery and the person is just seething. The emotion of anger is just losing out of them because it can't be contained. That's the picture of a policy. Is this guy you can imagine when he gets up. He wants to talk about this as going the way he wants to talk about what he knows is he gets to the end of the day. He's still thinking about well tomorrow. Who can we reach for tomorrow. If you had somebody. Who was that interested in spiritual things he would probably make a great convert. And that's what we think aquila and priscilla saw now. Here's the interesting thing. This word which is translated. Fervent or boiling over is used elsewhere in customink package. She's one of the time this chapter twelve in verse eleven. That's only one book over. So let's put over there for just a second and see how that word is used. Romans chapter twelve verse eleven. This is in that practical section. Enrollment as roma's twelve has information. It's a whole lot easier than romans. One through eleven and romans fifteen sixteen. But what are we find in chapter. Twelve in verse. Eleven Running all right. That sounds like that applies to one or two people everybody everybody so when paul says the fervent in spirit. He's using that same word that describes the enthusiasm of a policy over here next chapter eighteen. Now that's true. How many sloth christians should you find. How many disinterested christian should you find. This shouldn't be a single one. I mean everybody should really be with the program based on chapter. Eleven and policy does a good job of illustrating what that means. I think i told you. the stake. In the top twenty five or both express with the perfect tense that expresses continuing action and something that the speaking may have been in public setting or private settings and the teaching we have been in public settings. That's possible. I don't know that that's necessarily true. We do know that he wanted to tell people about the way also called attention. I think last time to the word accurately you find that were being used in places like matthew chapter and verse. Eight and chapter one in verse. Three so he based on the information that he has. He's careful with that. He's accurate with it. He's presenting it in a precise way. But what's the problem is not lack of precision. It is the celek knowledge. There are some things that he needs to know that he does not know and it was no figure his part. Chances are he got that information. And it's just like us. Anybody using out of date met an out-of-date map or had a gps. It was automated. We you get the point x and there is no longer a bridge there because there's a different road or some other issue. That's the problem. You need sometimes up to date information. If you're going to get from place a to place beat was kind of like an out-of-date map when the map was created. The information was correct when he heard the information the information was correct or at least it was correct as far as as it went at the time there were some things that had happened that he needed to earn. Well now. that's a problem for this guy because as you look down at verse twenty six. What are you find there eck. Yeah we touched on this. We're talking about the introduction to him to expect but if you have a person who is out there and we'll talk about a little bit but if you have a person who is out there and he's offering a compelling case. He's persuasive he somebody who is you listened to him. You think this guy really knows what he's talking about. Let's use a metal station again. Person says oh. Hey you need directions to get to wherever and it's a five hour trip and this guy gives you directions and he really seems to know what he's talking about. I mean he has told you. This is the way it is and you get down there. And all of a sudden it was. It should have been the other way i've given the illustration before I think but one of my first jobs. J. c. penney's and my job was a paint mixer and i told him i said do not put me in hardware. I am not a hardware guy. Sporting goods i can do. Oh whip you know. Put me in chewed apartment. Wherever but do not put me in hardware. We'll pennies hardware department. So i'm over there and they want to teach me how to mix paint now. This is the old style we have several nozzles and that has a little pink thing and you have to put the right amount of pigment in there and then it gets shaken up but one one guy came in one time and he ordered fifteen gallons of paint. And i was new and like i say i was fifteen or sixteen years old and i see the mechanical stuff has just never been how might bring this operated but anyway that's where they put me so i committed to do the best job we could and they told me what the limited training i had. If the paint shade doesn't match it will wanna goes on now. I had no experience in painting so mixed mixed up and the guy wants to pop off the lids and look at the pain. Well let me just like it's not like it's picking green but whatever the color was you could tell that there were a few different shades. It hadn't been created. Quite right. And i told him exactly what they told me. Just put it up and it all match indian. Why was a really good salesman. I guess because he did and it didn't he was mad. I didn't deal with him when he came back but he was hot. Must have given him half the paint department to satisfy them but you can imagine all the time and effort that he went into putting all that pain up. I doubt if he's still he's forgotten that but in this particular case i gave this guy a really good sales pitch they me. That's how it worked. The shades may not always match so take it home. Put it up. And it'll be fine. And i mean i told them him exactly what they told me but i was completely wrong and i learned some things that day and thankfully they didn't fire me. Hide get a little bit of britain. Top mixing up. But anyway you've got this guy he is up there. He is presenting people. He's presents information to people and say that he was believable. He was credible. Well he is. And i mean if you're you're listening to this man who is apparently eloquent. Who is apparently very educated. And you're thinking well this guy is telling you the truth well. It would be bad enough to misconduct on the paint bad enough to misguide you on the road. But what if someone is misguiding you spiritually. That's really a problem. So you're caller priscilla. You're christians. you're hearing the sky speak. You can see how persuasive he is and thinking this is not good this has to the fixed and thankfully they were brave enough to step in and work on that steve for this guy which deceitful and he knew what he was telling was wrong because the difference would be. The best of my knowledge is true. They don't know everything so you could have conviction to think it's right. Yes but if you sell it they will do that too. That is exactly right. It's kind of a two pronged problem. You have people who are deceptive. They know what's right and they deliberately lie. And you could have someone in the painting heart department do that. You know they just want to get the guy out of the door and they wanna sell some paint that month. So it'll be fine. Don't worry about it but then you have other people who were ignorant about the truth and that was true for me at least for a while when it came to paint and they they really believe something to be correct or right and they present in way but know there's some information is lacking or there was some things that they did not know and that's what we have here. Okay we do not know all apollo slacked as far as information da specifically say he was incorrect on the area. Baptism he did know about the way of god. You see that at the end of verse twenty six. You find a couple of interesting things here. Now he's about three. If you think about egypt and you think about where john lewis baptizing. There's distance serve about three hundred miles now in ancient times. That's a pretty the distance even for us three hundred miles. You're driving fifty miles an hour stops. That's a six hour trip which is not exactly cross town for us and yet somehow from the area were. John was working there in judea way down to alexandria egypt work of john. The baptist work of john. The baptist became known there. I think that's significant. That tells me that. John work spread to a lot of additional places. A lot of people outside the area of of israel navy. There'd been john's disciples that gone. They travel down to alexandria and cheer that information. But somehow apollo's new at least some of the facts about jesus life. I would think based on the information and after nineteen he knew about the lord's ministry that jesus came into the world and taught a lot of the things. Perhaps you also knew about jesus death and resurrection. I do not think though that he knew about the lord's supper special the picture here. He's going into the synagogue. There's no indication that he's worshiping on the lord's day no indication that he was participating in lord supper he certainly did not know about the one. Baptism that paul talked about in the fishes foreign. I five and how that replaced john's baptism. We'll see that next chapter nineteen. I doubt that he knew very much. About the lord's church that was purchased with. Jesus blood. How that church was organized. How that church worships and so forth. And then as you look at cannabis tune it next chapter. You find some people who are only familiar with john's baptism lack of policies. They didn't know about the holy spirit. I think it's likely that policy had not received any information about the holy spirit. Either but steve yes renewed ashes job after. I think there were probably some people who did that. Because it would be like circulating that there were some people. There's a new map out there. The new information but just like the people in chapter nineteen. This was apparently well. After the time of pentecost the people in excellent thinking the poll finds and they learned about. John's baptism murkland for the baptism under repentance for the forgiveness in and they thought well yeah we do that but that was old information. Good for the time right for the time but it had been replaced by the baptism of cross but they had not heard about that new information. Yes correct they had. So i mean when you think about some things Getting the news out you think about the civil war that we have in this country were there are still some people fighting when the war was over there. Were well how well the. War's ended that news. You know for us. We were still thinking. We're still in the battle and until that news comes and that's the problem sometimes for people and we've done better as far as getting the word out but in a lot of areas that still creates problems. People will say well that that was the old law. That was the old way and it's no longer correct for us. Oh you're talking about a gilligan's island episode where the japanese yes. You've been out of the suffocated. No well gilligan's island fifteen years after five. I think the worst author of the world so it does not so much now but in previous yom ears in wars until you actually get the word out and if somebody tells you well. The war's over. Maybe that's a boy. People are thinking that's just a trick by the enemy to capture or kill us so it really is difficult to shut down some things and they say that is no longer the way it is. This is the new way. Eventually everybody gets on board but it can be challenging to sometimes get that accomplished dan. Blue city preaching mac and said no earning in my bones jeremiah. He just dr from the solution well. Jeremiah was inspired. A policy was not there would be that definite distinction between the two when you look at the compulsion though i think he can say it was from a different source jeremiah. The opening chapter about verses one through five said she aside you know basically from the womb to do this not so much in that category but as far as a feeling the need to go out and preach and teach and share this information. Yeah i think that you have a really good comparison between the two and that should be our mission today. People oftentimes bring you think about older people and grandkids. Let me show you my grandchildren. I mean that that's something that is prominent in their minds are looking for an opportunity to do that. Or the gardener person comes with let me show you my garden or let me show you my woodworking or let me show you whatever it is and for the christian it should be. Hey we want to share with you. Some information about pricing the gospel salvation. It okay. let's move down to act chapter eighteen in verse twenty six and he. This is continuing with a policy began to speak boldly in the synagogue and aquilla hurt him. They took him under him. Took him under them and expounded under him. The way of god more accurately boldly verb and the verb. I'm gonna give you this definition for like it describes the fearless and free proclamation of the gospel. Now let that sink in because it relates to what i said just a little earlier the free the open the bold proclamation of the gospel. If you have this guy in the synagogue. He's not just got a bible center. Today this is the kind of guy that jumps up and says i've got news for you. Something that is great news wonderful news. You've probably never heard this before. And he gives us presentation. It's like the guy who if you have ten people there and somebody says somebody comes to the group tennyson. I need directions. This guy jumps up. And says i know exactly how to get there and then he starts telling the person all the wrong steps or get you halfway there and then gives you really bad directions. Now if you're the other nine people in that room and you know that those directions are wrong. What are you feeling. Well okay. you're thinking that has to be corrected. You can't go down that road. He's giving you the wrong information. And i can imagine that a policy that priscilla inequality may have wanted to just jump up right there and say wait a minute. Wait we got so. There's there's some additional information but really speaks. Well this couple that they were able to hold our horses that they were able to restrain themselves and that they were able to take him aside privately and offer some instruction they were a couple for a lot of reasons. But i also think that you have to point out that they had great self restraint among a number a number of other qualities. Let's go back said. Look look at this word boldly a little bit. It describes the free the fearless proclamation of the gospel and this word every time it's used in the new testament aside from here describes paul's preaching. I wanna run a couple of these references for you. Give them all if you want to write them down. But the first time you find it is an x nine twenty seven and then from nine verse twenty nine and then in acts thirteen forty six. The next chapter is fourteen three and then chapter nineteen verse eight twenty six twenty six and then inefficient chapter six in verse twenty. I wanna look at about three of these references to will be next chapter nine so the reader will ask you get both of those and then the other one's gonna come from acts thirteen forty five and forty six and then maybe even next twenty six twenty six. So let's go. Let's look at that as well ex night. Who wants to be heading over. There and reforest was twenty seven and verse twenty nine x nine seven twenty nine. That'd be gary x thirteen forty five and forty six. who'd like to take that one. Bonnie x thirteen forty five and forty six and then towards the end of the book x twenty six. I twenty six. Who all right steve. Thank u x twenty six twenty six. Let's go back to chapter nine. We start during the first twenty seven to him and broke into the puzzle declarative to them. How and that. He had spoken to him and how he agrees both that demands the name of jesus all right at that time. Pow paul headman christian all that long barnabus stands up for him says look. I'm going to vouch for this guy. And he says he's not only preached but how do we preach. He preached boldly. Well do you think saul. Or paul had been preaching boldly before he became a christian that he was boldly preaching christianity was wrong. I imagine he was pretty fervent in spirit now he flips to the other side. And it's not well. I just believe in christianity. Or i'm going to preach christianity Chigney but i'm going to boldly fearlessly defend the gospel of christ with my life. Now if you've got up and you heard this guy. Preached some soul stirring sermons lead hurt him before preach some soul stirrings against the faith. You'd be thinking. Hey something is going on into. Somebody has paid this guy off or this guy is just out of his mind or he is the real deal so we need more insight about this paul. And this change that he's undergone and if it's the real we probably listen as well same chapter. Gary was twenty nine if you would. Lord jesus dispute against the grecian art. It's one thing. I what what's the saying. Hit and run. You be hitting look hit and run preacher in the first century. Golden jewish synagogue. You preach your sermon in the. what do you do. Run out the door right. I saved my peace. And i'm not going to stand defend x number twenty nine. Was paul a hit and run preacher. He said i'm going to stand up unborn to preach and then if you want to do what if you want to kill me. If you want to attack me you want to challenge me. If you want to debate me. I will stand here and defend my car so he was someone who is truly bold that sas extract nine as first how the word is useless. Move over to chapter thirteen and see what we've got versus. Forty five and forty six filled with vein which is by fall contradicting and lastly all and said you voted. You seen from you. Judge yourself on the line all right. Here are some unhappy campers. But paul said you may not like it and that's okay but we've been bowled with you and now we're going to go preach to the gentiles. And he was bowled with them as well. And then let's take a look at that last reference to the one site x have to twenty six in verse. Twenty six these schemes. Paul is before wheeler and he's making the point that he was willing to speak boldly somewhere is used in that verse out. It's one thing if you're talking to a friend to the bold. It's another thing if you're talking to an enemy to the bolt but what happens especially in ancient times. If you're before the ruler the king the emperor yeah a lot of people who said well you know we. We can't see that the him now. We've actually seen this. In modern times we had otis gatewood. He's been dead for a few years but he actually had the chance to go and sit with. I think we're michief. And have a conversation with him and he asked him about baptism. And that conversation ga a little testy gorbachev as far as i remember. The recollection of the story said i have been baptized. and gatewood was old tough veteran missionary. Who had a bit of an exchange about that well. Not every baptism and we'll see this from chapter. Nineteen is vital baptism and grachev kind of held his ground. But can you imagine being a christian go into another country in this case russia which has not always had a great relationship with the us. You're there in foreign soil. You're talking to the leader of the nation. You're talking to leader in the nation about salvation. And you're telling him. You need to be right with god mr president and what you've done does not quite line up with new testament teaching. You gotta have a few guts to to do that. I mean kaz. He can say. Hey we're just gonna lock you in prison. You know you're not going home. You getting out of this country so i. I commend gatewood for what he did. Commend paul for what he did. And when you think about that. That is perhaps the ultimate expression of boldness where. It's not just an angry crowd but it someone who has the ability to end your life or do some very awful things to you. But that's the kind of preacher that paul was he was even chained as you're gonna have to twenty six but he was still bold anything we went before we talk about this word accurately a little bit more all right gary to you. You know why you all solved. He was goal in dating christian. There's some people were naturally all in will correct narrow vision boom. They're all their full raw and so if he was yes where we see the same thing with computer. Hackers don't we are white hat hackers who is a whitehead hacker. Or what's a white hat hacker. Yes he's he's familiar with that stuff that he uses that knowledge about how system can be hacked to actually say we need to make some security investments over here. I believe their time for the government has actually gone out and hired people like hackers so they would flip over and do what's right. You'll be like saying we need to guard something so let's go in and secure the services of a couple really good thieves the top thieves so they can help us better cure valuable items so it's kind of perverse thinking in a way but it does work. You get the worst so you can have. The best and god did that with all okay. Let's go back and take a look. At a couple of things here we noted that priscilla inequality take apologize to them privately. I don't think that probably took a lot of time. They want to explain the way of god more accurately to i think at this point. Apollo's probably has enough information esteemed noted earlier by going back to the old testament because paul did this as well. He had enough information to go back to the old testament isaiah h. fifty-three remember the predictions there. About christ. some of the passages second samuel chapter seven. I believe You've got All the predictions about price. And he's able to lay that out and say the messiah has come is here. His name is jesus. Well that was great and that certainly would have made an impact in a place like a jewish synagogue up. But it's like bad map again. You go so far. And then at a certain point the map is no longer accurate and you need to get a corrected. This couple wanted to do now. Today when people learn the truth and they want to obey the truth they need to get some information about proper baptism. Just like we have here with. Apollo's win you look at a lot of people today. They know that jesus existed. They know of that. Jesus had something to say about baptism about a lot of times. They don't know exactly what the lord said they started out with. Baptism is when you look at matthew. Twenty eight versus eighteen through twenty. Jesus talked about baptism As far as him instituting it and on the face of it. That would seem to suggest something about john's baptism wouldn't it. John was great. he's got a baptism. But if jesus institute's a baptism if you're thinking about that what probably would go through your mind or what could go through your mind. Should with your mind jonah suited about this. Jesus instituted aboutism. What questions went person. S well should both be followed are both in effect or has one been taken away so which one or are under both today. That would be a logical question to ask. What else might we ask. That would be another really good question why john have him. Baptism and then jesus comes. Along wasn't john's baptism good enough or given it last So that's also helpful anything else as far as looking at the two baptisms all right. I think that's another really good question will also might ask this question. How were people would baptize with. John's baptism. I mean did the is water and if they use water how much water and then. Jesus has a baptism and we're also obligated to follow. That are we to be baptized in water. And how much water is to be used. Well we start looking at the baptism of christ. We begin to find a twenty-seven it puts people into christ we know from romans chapter six verses one through four that it allows us to in the likeness of jesus death. We die to sin. Were buried with christ in batches of jesus was buried. Roma six forces were raised with christ Just as jesus was raised from the dead so we bury the life. We bury the sins if you will when we're about. And we have the forgiveness of sins acts two thirty eight next twenty two in verse. Sixteen those were big points. Policies apparently did not know and he needed to know and needed to teach that so he'll be teaching the truth when you look at the words more accurately that's from an advert which is not found outside. The book of acts expounded is going to be rented explained in the king james translation and it was like they gave the information about the gospel. A more precise way to apollo's now you might wonder whether or not a policy accepted the information if somebody asked you that question. How could you respond. Was he resistant to what they said or did he embrace what he was taught. As far as information about this versus about a policy idea later. I grin good very good. That's a sufficient. Answer prescriptions chapter three and versus four. Remember paul talks about. I planted who watered apollo water and god gave increase while paul treats him as a co worker. He treats him as someone who's faithfully working with the gospel so we would say that he did embrace the gospel of christ. Now as you look at all this information. Here's something that's not discussed if a was preaching this telling people in this bold way persuasive way. Hey jesus is the messiah. He's come you need to believe on him and john's got this baptism. And you know be that ties with john's baptism. What if some of the people obeyed that baptism. Well that's what we're going to see from after nineteen now that could have happened. Or perhaps in god's providence. Maybe policy had a session or to the synagogue. He didn't get far enough aquilla and priscilla came in. At the right time providential early heard him were able to correct him and then he is able to go and teach and perhaps not even have to retract anything. Maybe god was gracious tune sometimes baba classroom. And you want to get this far but for whatever reason you can't quite that far reworking some things at home. You intend to do ten things in the list. You only get down to number eight and the next thing. I'm so glad it only got down to number eight. Because i got done number ten. This bad thing probably happened. But i avoided that. And maybe god's providence in love a policy did not get quite as far as he hoped because when it started talking about john this couple connected the fact that hey. There's some things that he doesn't know and we can correct more. He didn't have to correct very much. Stand you be the world today. We're multiple official correct overly long and say initial formation basically the though they fund yes i mean most. They would not be baptized with john's baptism. But they would be baptize in turn of way. Which is exactly what we have here but it boils on the basically the same. And that's what we'll talk about. I think for the of class tom. Seven minutes left. This may not be quite enough time. John's baptism was at for the forgiveness of sins whether emission of or not yes or no it was and we know that from our chapter one in verse four all right so john's baptism is for their mission. As sins is the baptism of christ the one that jesus instituted for the forgiveness of sins it is and that's an extra University eight all right so there is that similarity but despite of having that stated purpose that's the same. There are some differences. John king john when he taught about baptism except nineteen hundres. Four this look across the page there and see what it says ex nineteen four in a good stop right there. I john dot ties. This baptism unrepentant. You have to repent us other missions but that ism was tied to christ who was to come all right. Did jesus come. Yes and now. We've got this baptism and not only has jesus come. What's he done. He went to the cross and died and was buried and then rose. And jesus baptism it's not about terrorism about jesus coming. It's a baptism. Jesus died and now you die. And jesus was buried and now you are buried and jesus was raised and now you are very. There is a big huge difference. The stark difference between those two. Then there's this difference in matthew chapter three in verse. One as well as verse to john talked about this baptism and he said the kingdom is what the kingdom is or coming the kingdom had not yet come it was it was close by and yet jesus as you look at remember john chapter three versus three and five new birth except a man be born anew. He cannot enter the kingdom of god. Well jesus put this together and guess what you could you can now enter. The kingdom of got johnson is coming. This is that doesn't jesus says this is my baptism. And you can enter the kingdom of god. Jesus john's baptism was temporary. We'll see that in the next chapter. Jesus said he's was going to last until the end of time. Matthew twenty eight versus eighteen through twenty and then as you look at the information about that schism yasser wanna make the point as far as it was instituted by god in matthew twenty one verses fifteen twenty one twenty jesus asked is john statism from heaven or man what was from heaven and the people didn't want to admit that but john was baptized in people for different reasons and the reasons for that were no longer in force now. Stan was leading to a little bit ago. What happens if you find some people today. Who say well look. We were ties and you begin to ask some questions. Like paul doesn't act chapter. Nineteen and they sit with sprinkling well. That's that's an easy one because we can show the baptism as far as proper. Baptism is not sprinkling when soda says. I had water porta me again. That can be easily dismissed. But what happens when the person says. I was immersed or what happens when the person says. I was immersed for the forgiveness of sins. Possibly but i'm not really sure about that well. In those cases there have been a lot of people who've gotten wet but they've never been baptized. There is difference between getting wet and proper baptism. Going back to john chapter three. Jesus talks about baptism. He describes it as a new birth and birth. You're either born or you're not there is. There's just no middle category there. i mean it. It's one of the other and the same is true in the spiritual realm. You either have been born spiritually after you've committed sin or you've not and until a person is born in newest. Jesus describe john chapter three. That person is not a christian. It's as simple as that and once a person has been born to the need to be born a second time. They've been born the second time. Can you be more in the second time. No if you have experienced that true birth and you go into send somehow you really go off the rails. Then you don't get baptized again. Because that's a one time process. What do you do. You are someone who while you confess. I john chapter one of his nine. And you also repent as we see from simon inex- chapter eight. We also know as we think about baptism. It's not appropriate for infants. They cannot believe they cannot take up the cross and jesus talked about in matthew chapter ten and versity if a person is going to properly be prompt properly about ties. They've got to have that faith. They've got the i believe. That's the way about hearing the word in the book of acts there's got to be that repentance And that's important. Do you think have been some people who have been baptized for the right reason. that is. They were taught the truth but they didn't repent. Why would i be that sized. But not working worse yes there was an illustration one time now. Deceased preacher said guy was. He taught the gospel. He was baptized in the first thing that he said after coming up out of the water was. I hope you're satisfied. And that was his wife now. If you heard those words wife or not what would you conclude about the reason for that man being baptized he was being nagged to death and he thought shut my wife up if finally be baptize. Well i doubt. I don't know the man's heart but i really doubt that repentance was there. Do you think that there have been some young people and some older people would specialists among people. Maybe some teenagers. The girl or the man was a christian dating the opposite sex and the one that was being dated was a non-christian and the non-christian felt like well you know. Religion is pretty important to the person meeting so agua ahead and i'll be quote unquote baptized. And then. we'll be good if that's ever happened. It has so people have been immersed sometimes for the right reasons and some have been immersed and they weren't even sorry for their sins and that's really sad but even john's baptism matthew three six and seven required repentance talking about the proper baptism the purpose. i guess i'll close it up here. Sometimes over the years most preachers will have someone at least one come to them and say look. I'm i'm not sure that i was baptized. For the reason. I always appreciate those people. Because generally the hearts of those individuals are really right and really kinder- they wanna make sure that they please got. Maybe they were baptized when they were young person. Ten eleven twelve thirteen. Or like i say maybe they just grown so much in the knowledge that they think well. I'm not really sure. I knew enough at the time. And they'll seek out someone. maybe a preacher elder maybe. You're the christian and say look. I am unsure about my baptism. A couple points there number one if somebody ever does that to you. And it doesn't matter as far as gender age. Take the person seriously and treat the person as you want to be treated. I mean if you were in that situation and you thought well hickey. I come to question my baptism and you go to somebody Preacher and older and then just blow it off on you were fine and everything is good. You would wanna be treated like that. So this is something that is very important to the person and it could be very important to god. So i if they've come to the point where they're asking about this they probably thought about it quite a lot and they're trying to make the right decision you can. There's nothing wrong with a person really thinks that they were not baptized correctly to say okay. You know we will go and you know again talk about it. A little bit mixture. You know everything in your head right and we will do it and that will eliminate any questions you can sleep well and that just takes care of it. You'll never have to to wrestle with this again. And we'll be glad to do that. Doesn't have to be put in the church bolton or announce do that privately and so forth and take care of that so chances are at some point in life you will find someone who has had those questions at chapter. Nineteen is a good place to go. There was some people in this case. They definitely not baptized for the right reason but when there is any kind of question about that do that if the person was baptized for the right reasons the first time they got what the second time because they were reborn spiritually but that can eliminate any doubts. And that is a kind thing to do your.

Three sixty energy expert on the guys to sixty homepage. Dropdown industry incites grapevine. A landing page. We've got some great stuff going all right. Well let's start with carbon capture stew. I think it's the best place to start because this this is slightly comical and i'm also fascinated by this first off blue blue this blue moaning in store you've from saudi aramco's awesome. I'll i'll tell you what before we get started. We have the theory around here. And that is we want to get all of the lowest cost energy to the everybody on the planet. let's elevate everybody out of poverty and let's do it while we're good stewards of that's a and that's just because that's what the the in because the data shows that it's nothing more. There's no i don't have a site angle here. You know what i i mean. It could be even though we're on an energy Oil and gas re sixty. We're also energy three sixty and we you know we want wanna talk about nuclear. We wanna talk about everything so all that being said This is all about being green. All right got that. I've got it. Okay here we go. exxon I thought this was a good read. A good article. It was extremely well written and When you sit back and take a look at exxon there's two reasons to have carbon capture tax credits and what's coming around. The corner is es g. e. s. g. credits almost all of our majors. Bp shell everybody during our ep week. They're talking about going to carbon-neutral by is it. Twenty thirty michael Something like that and it's all around. I it's it was like twenty five to i mean when i got to figure that data because i have pledged to hit apps by then oh absolutely and so they're follow me on my west harbor neutral. They're getting carbon neutral by taking credits on the goodness that they do. They're still going to be public. You know put carbon everybody's going carbon-neutral art everybody seeking carbon credits yes it's a fallacy that when a company says we're going corporate culture they're actually cutting their carbon emissions what they're doing is they're purchasing credits in order to admit because there's an economist we take this class. There is a level of emissions that is required. A graph of you can actually put a number value now. It's not a great estimation you can put a number value on what a pound of carbon. It's like thirty five bucks anyway. It's like anywhere from like five. You could find ranges from like five to seventy i had to take. I took environmental engineering environmental economics. Kind of a boring classmates. You didn't find but it's really interesting. How you can calculate a pound of carbon causes the most average like thirty five bucks right. i mean how. How much did these guys admit. Well there's a bunch here in our our we need to get. Somebody needs to create an es g like emissions like almost bloomberg terminal style. Somebody on that. I believe i know some guys working on that bed. What do ya yeah. Okay so all that is the set the stage you have exxon up in. The balkan has had a carbon capture technology up there for many years and you you capture the carbon. You pump it. Back into fracking in bonds with the molecules or to get more sounds great. Sounds like now. There's a cashier yet. They have had multiple multiple accidents of having to close schools from the carbon. Co two coming up from the ground. So this is not jed clampett going oh up from the ground came bubbling crude up from the ground came Oh by the way you know a bunch of c o two so this this and this is where my engineering prowess 'cause this is different than co two flooding correct. That is correct. So you you sit there and ango You know anyway Environmental activists say that. There's good reason to require rigorous rigorous a satellite and. We're fudd oversight Exxon wyoming's facility for example has repeatedly spewed unknown volumes. Gas into the surface Most likely through the old wells as they try to get more oil out of it A nearby school was forced to close after carbon dioxide was Detect see that's on the side of that's horrible and we need and we need to figure out and can't let that happen ab -solutely we want that gives fossil fuels a bad name cartagena. It's unnecessary. it's not like it's necessary but we need to cover. It is just not even necessary at all Okay carbon capture credits. Forty four million metric tonnes between two thousand nine and two thousand. Fifteen is what they've claimed. How much of that actually was. Carbon credits or pumping up through the ground through schools hurting people. I don't. I'm sorry for swearing. I know this is a family show but family serious man this idea remember so along this point we. We were talking about You know solving issues. I'd be remiss last show. I mentioned there was this. Was this company. That was worried that i engage with. That won't point they. It's called pioneer energy and these guys have mobile gas capturing and transporting technology that you can literally throw on your wells. It captures one hundred percent of your gas. You don't have to flare and it will the it the way they've connected it they'll just pump it right back in either back into the ground the pipe it over one of your injection wells or this look it up with your other train. It's super easy. So there's things like this out there words like it makes me not sympathetic when this happens you know what i mean and this goes back to our bp week in exxon week and all this other stuff that they're not giving you the whole story. And i'm not a conspiracy. Well yeah. I am conspiracy theory when it comes to correctly check fast conspiracy. Love a good spiracy okay. So let's move on to. Saudi aramco speaking conspiracies. Speaking of i like the folks over its idea the largest company in the world. They're good people I i'm not kidding. I mean they called us and wanted to interview us. They like us so. Let's talk about blue ammonia okay. Ammonia is a very volatile. That's what blew up. Beirut just recently released so that's that was what was in the sheds. Yes there were two explosions and then ammonia it blew out and then the oklahoma city bombing was one u-haul full of ammonia. Okay that was fertilizer so we know it's very volatile now. How is the blue ammonia. This the title of the article is saudi aramco's since i blew monja shipment to japan a green. What so it's a. It's a volatile thing that one can explode but you can use it as fuel. Ammonia typically is. How every else you can use it at fuel but japan will receive forty tons of blue ammonia which aramco says has the potential of significant term contributed contributing to an affordable renewable low-carbon future. Here's the kitchen. You always gotta look for the nuggets in his bed dog and it is blue. Ammonia is produced from hydrocarbons in traditional resource but all of the co two generated is captured and isolated. Okay so that is natural. Gas and oil is you'd being used to create this blue hydrogen and blue ammonia and everybody's going ooh green. No it's blue Anyway that's part of the conspiracy. Theory is no matter what people are saying from the big boys there is tax credits there is. es credits and everybody's trying to go This is going to be a long story for you. And i and that is trying to bunk carbon credits and trying to find out. Follow the money. Follow the carbon credits. Were often running. Man this is. It's i agree. It's it's follow the credits. It's look at the start. i'm just pulling up by devin. And w live for an investor conference. I figured i'd pull it up on. Oh absolutely i got pulled up on my screen. So that'll be interesting to see what they should be going. Live here in about five ten minutes. Hopefully they really started anything yet. I'm not the sound on so we'll just see it got you usually come across this. Love me a good merger slide. Day should have some really wild non gap information that will be cool to dive into. But are we going to are. We gonna put non gap in there with carbon capture credits. Well it's this disease a super interesting idea. And this is what i would love to. Speaking of. we need to get people from school of mind. I would love to go find some so especially some of these environmental economics or and really talk about how this industry as the tr- this this underground market of trading credits work. Because what happens is there are the we i i. Don't you know there are examples. And and they would never say this in their actual Was i going to say In their actual live. So i can lock here. They would never say to their actual merger agreements but we went over a couple agreements. That are sort of known on the street. This company bought this company solely for the credits solely because they had a stockpile of credit. So i mean there's underground market for these things and they're valuable if they have them in. So yeah i mean it's you know. I think it's a necessary evil right now. I don't know what a better system is. Then selling credits you know. There's the idea of cap and trade but but but that's that even that people need to understand people are not going to understand michael what they are and until they understand that carbon. They're going to sit back and go. Oh exxon I'm just saying this Amazon everybody all the big boys are going carbon-neutral it's because they're putting one hundred thousand dollars per credit. Whatever the number is you. And i need to open our own carbon credit Credit company you here and and go you know Anyway a few jokes are never mind. Now it's i it would be. I would be down to be the the the dealer of carbon credits you guys come to us and we working a broker dealer license here. Let's start dealing carbon credits. We let's let's let let's do this. Let's become the let's hedge. Let's hedge companies carbon propofol market. We can break ourselves into. We will become the ages. Free hedging carbon credits. New business model know. I was thinking more becoming sopranos. Hey you're gonna buy your you can buy your critics from me. I would terrible italian accent. So i'm not even gonna get better shot all right about that. I think we should. We need to go ahead. You actually got some other stuff here. You went you. You got this middle east stuff and you touted something on this show friday. You said you had some sources saturday. You didn't have a chance to touted off in real time. So let me give you a chance to brag. Okay i'm breaking my arm. As i pat myself on i can't okay. Hey we've been talking about israel we've been talking about With the leviathan field. We've been talking about the chevron or the noble purchase of all of its assets. And everything else wonderful. You know. Natural gas going on in turkey Getting in fights. This is all been over the last year that we i mean you know since january. We've been talking about this israel. Great news saturday. I news coming in israel to hold. Us mediated talks with lebanon on. The sea borders a major breakthrough in the mediterranean energy politics. This is fabulous because the Trump administration had just brokered to other Peace deals and he got to nominated for two nobel prize This one is trump got nominated for a nobel peace prize to oh man and and so this is even beyond that. There's more coming so it is absolutely cool. That pom pom pay our Secretary of state is right. In the middle of negotiating. This one with lebanon and israel. And i am thrilled to see peace over the entire middle east and mediterranean club. Med trying to get to energy free or energy independent without war. It's all i mean. I'm all about no no war i agree. Hey that's why i've used to early. Twenty twenty four secretary state a start the campaign pain. I couldn't pet congress. Rip me all up okay. The second story their release. This morning. Which i kind of knew about and that was greece calls for peaceful resolution of east med maritime disputes. Great news for the mediterranean search for energy independence. So greece is now trying to negotiate with the us Brokering this deal between turkey and greece and this is phenomenal news because this is the second piece. Deal out of club med. That there's about two more coming up in. I'm hoping it's this week but it may be next week Onto more deals so this is absolutely -solutely stinking great And it's a whole mess. Michael that is so intertwined between turkey. Libya them coming in. We've talked about all of this on the internet and i still. Could you tell you all the different ties i i. It's incredible told you that you are you are. You're you're the you're the international news of the international man of mystery. You're just all over the place. And i haven't seen anybody else putting all these dots together. I almost feel like the conspiracy theory. Oh who was it. mel gibson member. That movie where he was sitting in the closet and had all the dots all lined up is. I don't know i. it was funny. The last thing on the international news desk is. I hope everybody on the podcast can listen to this. But on the oil and gas. Three sixty We have a picture from Cnooc which is the chinese oil company. And i got real tickled just at the picture that went out with the picture was from Sort and you see to Chinese oilfield workers and they're looking at a valve in shock and with hard hats on. They got gloves. That can barely fit. the gloves coming up over it and it's hanging down to his feet it's kinda cool lookin' and then look at the guy on those right s.'s. He's got little tiny glasses on the atoms. Plastic things. I remember seeing those. Those so yeah. It's like a sound mean but the nurse would do that in college when we would go to lab they would have the little things. It was hilarious. I put that out there. Michael because i thought every safety officer in the world would actually throw that looks to clean for pc. Be interested in what the chinese version of ocean would just push you off. That's funny that is funny all right anyway. It's been i even though. I was digging a trench in my the mary on trend in my backyard. I did work a bunch on the international stuff. No i mean you ruled out a bunch of stuff you know. I guess still on the international side but touches on on the. Us side is cal. Fracking's come out and responded to responded to wilkes brothers as we know there was this back and forth. What what i find funny is you can go read this megacity sixty. It's just a press release so it's ten things you need to know about cal. Franks amended recapitalization tracked. Action towel racks. I are squad. So i mean again. Remember i've always thought who's who's ever read some shasta. Who's who's who's a by. An who the sources who are the sources for this article gonna tell you all you need to know about the information you're getting so this is cal fractured team right here. Okay so clearly. These is going to be funny. One of their biggest things is that they're offering shareholders fifteen cents on the share if because what works for going to do is take a private right but i think what the interesting part is. They don't have common stockholders. They have like if you go. Look i put up a blue. They have only got one hundred eighty outstanding thousand common shares and they're all help by institution that the retail holds sixty four hundred shares. So what it looks like if you might not get mapped sixty four hundred dollars. So you're you're haggling. The statement one is specifically for sixty four hundred shares. It could be like three people. Just what kills me. It's like it's offering shareholders the opportunity receive fifteen cents per share. No one's getting that besides like six nudes. So who cares. That's why we'll brothers is offering you twenty six million in cash because these bondholders now equity in a company. That's no private because this this is going to go private now michael. When i read this people i they. They don't have great things to say about that company and the people that are charged over there. I think the counteract breaking news. No i think they watch our show because when they heard all of your stuff There were four out of the ten things that you already brought up on our show. You're listening. I don't know what to tell you guys like you're you're you're you're you're not talking to that it just it just kills me. It's just it's just what kills me. We did great. Though on your analyze to all ten. I loved break. Shareholders should be very skeptical wilkes. Mother claims of confidence being granted exemptions under canadian takeover bid legislation to speed up. It's just like not no one who all it's hilarious did they write this to the shareholder k. But this needs like someone's should be. This is like gone older. Who knows no one can understand this. No veto investor understands this just investor. I get paid to do this. Kind of not really. But it's my job to know what this unions and you're overpaid. i'm paying my way overpaid. I am grossly overpaid but we are taking sponsorships opportunities. So if you want to continue to overpay me please. We're open for business over here. Oh absolutely and by the way. Our reaches phenomenal. Shameless plug came in all reality. I this conflict. Be interesting between me and you. I think this company should just. I think we should hold a funeral but there were no there. It's just an on staying around. So as as as our favorite friends at princess bride would say are only mostly dead in monty python says. I'm not all right. I think we spent enough time dancing around. When i think is the you know the biggest i would say story of happened. This weekend was that was kind of coming out of left field devon and wpa in a combined merger that actually is happening there will be a conference call as we speak and of stroll through some interesting nuggets that are popping up on this conference. Call it off. Beat off here but to give you the eye. Level deals current market value. twelve billion. Excuse me about six billion but the total equity plus debt value is about twelve billion. Gives you an idea kind of an idea of the debt sitting around. Let's see some interesting deals. Some interesting nuggets in the steel. Give me a second here. I was on the wrong page here.

What do they sell it. I will i guess interesting. But hey Before we go on. I wanna give a shout out to all my friends over devon there are some fabulous people working well an absolute look at it from both sides here because like i think people saw the headlines.

We'll well that's cool yeah you're quoted as went up my quo yeah. Our sponsorship number just went up after reading. These guys i need is on the phone. Just know that quote number went up can be naked of good stuff here. Seventy five million breakout closet. That's not agreed to by. What is it like march. What does it march twenty six twenty twenty one. If it's not agreed upon it to seventy five million dollars exit fee that has to eat you know depending on who terminates the deal. So i mean are we gonna come into another and a because remember before the will oxy catastrophe with Excuse me darko chevron purchased. And it's that i wish i was doing the podcast around that time because i had it's legitimately what happened with that situation. With chevron by darko an oxy company savings is the exact same thing that happened with the denver broncos when we almost grossly overpaid for brock osweiler and the texan swooped in and saved us and offer them like a million bucks more out of the league within two years. So ooh talk. But all that being said i think this will go through. I think it's gonna stop highlights from the lights from the conference call here. David says company understands maturing demand dynamics. That's a nice way to put it in maturing. We're gonna act what it is. You're right you're right. Yeah that's what it is. It's not demand destruction it's not complete collapse in commodity prices along with an absolute devastation of forward looking me. And it's just maturing demand dynamics give that guy arrays million bucks for him you know. Actually that's what happens when you're married for thirty four years. Ceo street the top line headlines here says will limit top line. Five percent sixty percent of the production is going to be made up in the delaware basin. Interesting well i mean. they're just go permian. I mean. I think a couple of things. So there's the highlights. I think you look at it from devon inside you know maybe this is a a a merger to preempt an acquisition by a larger super major. I that maybe it's that type of move and from w it makes sense. How do you get acquired by excellent quicker. Well you get you merged with somebody else. Create our twelve billion dollar company. And let's see if now in six months of commodity prices will cover a little bit. You're now sixty percent hedged or sixty percent in the permian. Let's get some you know. Call up our friends in ages. Get some good hedges plays. I don't know maybe there's an attractive opportunity to really purchase for a nice big number. Now i think the the oxy deal has scare people. I don't think you're going to be seeing those fifty those thirty to fifty five billion dollars. I don't unless you see an upward swinging oil prices so maybe maybe twelve billion is. Can they fetch that can fetch twelve to fifteen on the open market in a year and a half years accompany if you believe the goldman sachs report is going to be sixty five bucks. Yeah they probably do get flipped. But if oil continues to t t to stumble and we stay around here. I don't know. I think that you know that's an interesting way to look at this deal. Is maybe they saw this as an opportunity to combined and put the tradition to be actually acquired. This is just a merger missile we mergers and acquisitions. This is a merger You know the interesting thing that i saw the street kind of gauging interest on the street here i think half the people really liked talking talking about analysts investors You know i saw a note from a wooden mackenzie guy. Their analysis showed that assuming devon allocates its cash considerations that it was gonna use for ex in two thousand twenty one and they use it to pay off some of wpa twenty twenty three senior notes. The combined company shouldn't have any maturity still twenty twenty six. So that's pretty good now. Devon's income statement doesn't look great but now you're moving down into the thing or into excuse me guy that you're moving onto the permian back. Another thing that i saw is so as you know. W you know another interesting note is why do mergers take place why versus acquisitions studio javadi. Do you know why that happens. There's a lot of different reasons. Oh sure the people you know the sit there and They won. I think you just nailed the the one on this and that is they wanna prep up to be bought. I thought that was fab fabulous. Like hey i an idea. I either sponsored. There's a lot of things go to because there's a lot of reasons why you would merge versus get quiet and i think one of the reasons why you merge is because there will be called synergies and hey and if you've if you know if your company and you've cut costs down to the brim how do you 'cause even more down to the bone you merch the only way you the only way you grow after you've cut costs to the bone and you say you know we're we're slashing gna. Wow that's because they're seventy five percent of people work at wbz and feeling and what used to be felix energy. I knew a couple of people that work there. they're gone. I mean there's about seventy five. I'm telling you that's in order that that's one reason why you merge you say we can take over this we can you know the executives at both companies that we can lay off thirty percent forty percent of what would be this new staff was combined and we can now double or acreage and we can give ourselves nice little million dollar bonuses. Yeah done signed the deal. Let's write the checks so right you know if you're wpa extra felix employees. You got shafted in this deal. You got shafted. And if you're a felix shareholder you got even more shocking you got acquire for a billion and a half. Now you're coming around or if you're wpn shareholder excuse me you grossly overpaid for felix energy. And i'm old enough. As i mentioned in the pre show to remember december thirteenth. Stu get this. This is this. Is they have to discuss this stuff. When you formally offered by companies get this number you see on december thirteenth twenty. Nineteen mr moncrieff. Ooh who's the former ceo wpa energy at the time now see devon as of in caucus. Morning held a follow up meeting with the energy company representative. They don't say who they can't tell you who tell you. They're not telling you but some energy company with whom he had met with november. I twenty thousand private flight details. Let's find some price because he's probably flying private. That was a corporate jet that was a corporate jet he was on during that meeting. Energy company indicated mr moncrieff that the energy company would be potentially interested in exploring potential transaction involving the combination of the energy company with w px. This is the energy company they will. He appreciated the interest of the company. In w w and it's over folks excavating the company's blah blah blah destroying capital during this meeting representatives delivered mr monti and preliminary indication of combination are excuse me doing a primary indication of contemplating the combination of the company and the energy indication of interest contemplated. And this is the spicy parts. Do contemplate a premium to the market price of the common stock at the time so not only did seven months ago they dwp x. Offer to get acquired at a premium they were trading at one hundred stock was up like sixty four percent talk about boss. Buying high sell low by felix. Hi lay off half that staff sell low merged with devon. Layoff even more of your staff. That's a doosy. Excuse me and there's this during the breakout session. I wanna wear that entercom session breakouts. Because i don't know the oil and gas conference it's actually a bark. it's actually barclays i think is when you read that it was a barclays. Yeah it was a barclays energy comforts. So sorry there's wasn't as much fun as art definitely definitely not during his breakouts. It's the board discuss. Preliminary indication the interested in friday mr mike blah blah blah including its economic terms in the premium to the market price. Your wpro shareholder you. Look i think you got well. I got a examination. I should've been over toucher examined by the dock. Moon river at doc. No that's out of fletch. Chevy chase so hey real quick. You're talking about it doesn't hurt. I mean you talk about the bone right. Cutting to the bone my Dough joe master. When i was in all my black belt stuff with my kids did get my black belt. But Are saying on the wall was it doesn't hurt 'til the bone shows so you know that's why people merge i thought that was technical reason there. I mean you know i you know. Luckily you know if i was a wpn shareholder. And if i had been a long term what. I'd be depressed right now. But i mean if you're a devonshire if you're on the devon side of visiting a decent deal i think i think you covered it outstandingly well outstandingly well. We need to get that a lot of things we need. You know t shirts so we need to open up oil and gas to me safety merchandise and just start getting all. I need a beautiful day in the. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood shirt mug. Can i get that on a mock. Oh absolutely and then good management. Good numbers get that We got a few pair were. We're capitalist over your so. We'll throw your logo right under that if you just pay us enough money absolutely county and the screen. Exactly what's a few. How are we not it on this. How did we not get in on the rebrand for this devon. Give us a call me man that we could've fixed it half. The price is your friends and family discount. So i think that's everything you know. Here's a pc weekends too. I mean i usually try to but you know. Obviously this damn wpa steel. Email me. M. tanner coming. Tell me. i'm stupid. You can find my email in the shot. I think we look at the levels for the as always the second is sponsored by so capital cookies guys great research guys. Just calm thrills. Three zero three nine zero seven six eight two five cents cd dot com. Tell the podcast interests. The only way we get credit time stands. I seven six. Am so pit opens in about twenty two minutes here. Forty seventy curls royal trade axes taken off a little bit Be interested as you come across the news ticker here. probably has something to do Curly hitting a top level. Right now. So i sent me kind of real choppy last week. You know if you want to cover what if you want to know what happened last week in the in the levels. Please go check out our daily our show last week episode number fifty. We were weren't oh man now so But when i when. I look at what what i see this weekend or what i look going forward. I think a lot of hinges on on. What's going to happen. Wednesday and thursday with our with with with inventories on the production will be interesting to see. I think you know if you go. You know we have a bunch of stuff on oil gas six right now if you go look at where oil production is trending. You know we. We've been running conflicting. We've had conflicting reports. Come out from a lot of different sources. Some people say we've reached peak oil. Some people say i if you if you know if it'd be interesting to see what we do you know i look at. The biggest drivers price is going to be this week one. I think we're back into news of the virus. And i've been hearing things from from around different parts of the country. Things are getting a little creepy. Now things are starting to wind back in. And i don't know if that's something because if the election or whatever i don't know i really don't know so it'll be it'll be you know a a really good a really good indication i think when we look you know i'm probably bearishness week. I mean when you look at now currently spiking for overnight session here. I i'm just not sure oil needs to be food. Thirty forty three to forty five bucks. The cap on this is forty two forty three bucks if we do spike above that great I did see on. This is what. I love twitter for. I did have one of my favorite things to go. Str- operators they tell you a lot about what's going on in the industry and here's an idea update from a stripper. Operator shut in. Wells will lift cost over forty dollars until october first. Fourteen percents about fourteen percent of their operations getting hedge setup up with counterparties to grab some the low forties. Maybe twenty five percent of the production. Whatever services their debt determinations were working be determinations. Right now should survive update for stripper. France which is good to hear especially at. I mean it's not great but they're in business and if you're operating cash efficiently you can make money in this time. And that's why i don't think a oh man that's why you know at these numbers the long-term fundamentals. Just don't look. I think we're gonna see stocks rise this week. I think on the gas side. I'm still waiting for three fifty gas. I'm even that twelve months trip. Look like that twelve months strips. Three sixteen well think about it. You're going to have blue Ammonia you're gonna have green l. n. g. you're gonna have all the stuff made out of fossil fuels and it's all coming around natural gas. It'll get i think by caps you know if you're looking to see if you could trade oil one good luck to probably i would say a couple of at one. Thirty six is good selling level. Omic forty one eighty-seven good selling level couple. Buying levels is probably thirty. Nine seventy three point control thirty nine ninety four so the the we drift away from that could be a nice Could be a nice package deal. Their criminal traders. That was looking at it. Didn't really you know pretty pretty non interesting on the on the side. You know what. You expect Hedge funds are you know cutting all of their long positions. Why they're just getting short out That's what's happened around. A lot of these hedge funds were getting short and they're adding to what their long positions just. They're just getting out there. So that's and then we're talking about a week prior interesting swap dealers going busy on the short side which makes sense. Everybody's trying to get in place for the re determination Process What else do we have. Yeah i mean the way that the way hedge funds trade oil is not the way i think the oil and gas. They're they're in it for a different purpose to you. We're gonna say something. No i was laughing so man. It's been a long show. We miss anything. I don't think so. I just want to let everybody know. We've got some great subscriber benefits coming around the corner. We are launching a ton of tools on oil and gas three sixty and with the importance of years. Gee we add some stuff coming around the corner. Did we have a lot of cool stuff coming around the corner. Chagall out at oil and gas. The world's greatest weapon oil and gas sixty dot com.

Episode 7: Bill Kelly

"I mean I think I've got skills but I think I'm not. I'm not the handsome leading man guy. I'm odd-looking I do have a pork admit I milo from this is us has crooked mouth they could you know. I'm not the same guy from your. Communications is how I got here. A show of inspiring stories from Tallahassee area leaders business owners and neighbors all the challenges opportunities. Inspirations the twists and turns of life that led them to where they are today Eh. Everyone has a story worth telling and I am really grateful that we get to bring a few of them to you. I truly have been changed by my conversations with these amazing people. Well and I'm confident you will be too. I'm Dave Fury and in this episode I speak with Bill Kelley. A guy who has never for being afraid to try something new. He did gymnastics for the first time in college and made the team worked in radio formats. He wasn't familiar with and became an actor after the facts came into the radio station looking for help with student films and today when he's not selling or producing local radio he's flying around the country to be on the set with the likes of Samuel L. Jackson Anne hathaway in dwayne Johnson. Not Too bad for a guy who says he was pretty visible before he got cast in the lead of his high school. We'll play. We started with a question about how we would describe himself today. Probably say I'm a lifelong broadcaster. A part time actor churchgoing family love and Kinda Guy. I've been an entertainment for as long as I can remember so so you know I'm the entertainment type. So you grew up in central Kentucky Right. Richmond grew up in Richmond Kentucky which is a small Town Eastern Kentucky University. Is there just outside of Lexington about thirty minutes. Spent a lot of time in Lexington but Richmond is You know it's home. I go back there probably once every five years I get a chance to go back and had a good life in Kentucky. Grew up running around playing baseball riding bikes running into mailboxes with bicycles and doing just normal kid stuff you know. It's amazing how we got up on a Saturday morning watch cartoons grabbed your bike and you took off. You didn't come home until those dark until dark dark. And sometimes their after dark Usually my dad yelling out on the porch to come home and we were always is out doing stuff. and Dr Claude Fights and building forts in just Being down and dirty kids yeah. I don't know if kids do that anymore. But we had a blast. Yeah I don't think they do. I think there's too many things at least people are concerned. Yeah for sure sounds sounds like life was fun so you had siblings. I mean what what was family. Life My Dad was a career force so we didn't you know we do a lot of traveling that a lot of families a lot of relocations. It was pretty much Richmond for my entire life. I mean he would go on you know towards tours of duty and be gone for six months at a time. Something like that but had a sister Passed Ninety eight at a car wreck and on the only child now but my parents have been together for sixty two years. Wow and live in Arab Alabama now you know big city lights and exactly it's not an la it's in up it's up near Huntsville Alabama. It's it's it's a fun little town it's actually. You know pretty quaint little town. It's got you know all the staples of life. But they do roll up the streets about that o'clock every so it's not Not Quite The metropolis today's world. What is it what does it mean to you to have parents who have been married for sixty two years well gives it gives me a sense that a marriage is not something that's fleeting? It's it's something that you you stick together and you work through and everybody has problems. But you don't give up the you make that commitment and you you try to stick to it as best you can. Hopefully it's a lifelong thing but it's It's taught me about you know understanding EH cooperation. The give and take and as long as you wake up everyday thinking. What can I do for that of the person before you think about yourself? I I think you've got a pretty good start on. You know being in a lifelong relationship. No matter who it's with or I think America needs to get more solid in relationships relationships and marriages. There's too much text messaging and social media messages in an ugly things in the world. Just no place for anymore right so good stable childhood fund. Good statements all good. Yeah you know my dad and I. We weren't the the run out in the front yard play baseball type of father son but every Saturday night we went out to the local stock car. Track the dirt track which is about a mile away from my home. Half Mile would usually walk through the field and go to the races on Saturday night. So we spend a Lotta time getting to each other. Then just bonding. I learned about country music back then. Which was Loretta Lynn? George Jones country music. That's where I kind of got my knack ACKFORD My mom always loved to make her laugh. She and I took after each other quite a bit Had you know as like most kids. I think I was bullied in high school and Grade School because I am not the star athlete with a perfect looks. I got a crooked mouth in a you know I got my flaws but it bounced off of me. I think better than than a lot of people you know. Tolerated did it today. This is kind of what you did. Bank then aren't you and your mom. You guys were comedy partners. That sounds like yeah. We were comedy partners. You know I I think you can make fun of yourself as a kid which I instilled in my children. Who would come home with her feelings? Are you gotta you gotTa take their ammo away. Hey from him and just laugh at yourself laughing at you laugh with them right but I love to make her laugh. I'll never forget her sitting down the kitchen floor going. Shut up up kind of wet my pants you know and it's it. was things like that. That really kept our family together. I was told get home at eleven o'clock I got home at eleven o'clock you know if I had to do something or am back in my day. You gotTa spanking you know. I think I turned out okay for some rain. Imagine a military family. Your you know your dad was pretty rigid and structured and to some degree here. I think the biggest issue had with me was me taking his tools to go build the tree house and leaving his brand new song the rain. Where's materials and now kids the same thing to me tools? How'd you do in school? I did okay. You know I was. I was average. Had My bs mostly CS. COUPLE DIS occasional. That was average. School was always a tough thing. When you're not you know the big athletic kind and not the the prom king you kind of figure out where you fit in and it It ended up. I had a handful of friends that hung out with and I started dating a girl. And she's like wow you're different I said what do you mean she goes. I thought you were into drugs and I want to know. Where did you get that idea with the only other alternative you know I didn't smoke? Didn't do drugs and tried tried tried to athletics but Kept getting injured. You know on day one of trials but student life was Was Fun wasn't until my senior year. That I kinda came out of my shell. I decided to go and audition for the senior play. which was the beverly hillbillies and auditioned for Part of Mr Dryers Drysdale and they came back and said we want you to be Jed Clampett the lead and I was like Oh cool so all of a sudden popularity already changed and people realize that I had been there for three years prior. and Oh yeah I thought I saw familiar do you. Do you ever become Madison. In central matter of fact I like we were in English together for four years. Don't you know me you know so high school was it was okay. It wasn't insufferable for a bull I enjoyed but and then got into college Start out being the architect major and they have this thing called trigonometry amateur in Calculus and things and I went oh God and tripped up more than one. It did it really did and I sit there. I'll never forget sitting there at my drafting table looking outside. It's springtime and I'm going. Do I really want to be tied to this table when everybody's out enjoying the weather and at always wanted to to be an entertainment I want to be a DJ. So I left that with my visor and said I WANNA change majors. And she said you're crazy or two years into into an architecture degree and you want to change majors and then yeah so started. Pursuing broadcasting was on the gymnastics team. I saw that you didn't do any gymnastics in high school then. Never I was appalled more specialists so it was just the Palmer's because this one just get into gymnastics in college I took a I took A. Pe Course called rings parallel High Bar and the Pommel horse fell in love with each other. So I picked it up up. Really Fast requires a lot of strength. Yeah requires a lot of a lot of time in the gym and I basically had a crash course you you know what a lot of these guys have been doing. Sit Kids but I Ask The coach knows or any way I could get to work out more on the pommel horse and he said will you become manager of the team. And I'm like here we go manager. Yeah that's going to get the girls and I said well I be able to work out. And he goes every day with the team and it was. You Know Wink wink nod nod. If you do this you'll be able to get they'll be able to give you some training right so I did and you know it was my duties. Were really picking up the laundry in the day in the morning. First thing five thirty or so and then turn around and taking it back at The practice but but every day I was in that Jim all the way through the summer. Break the whole thing. We got back in the fall learned enough to to whether coach put me on the team and it's amazing how. How did how were your teammates today? Like who is this guy or were they accepting they were pretty supportive Some some were some were not quite as supported because they didn't know who was and it was like we've been doing this forever. You Walk on this team. I never competed. Uh because of a girl I quit the team because of a girl and then she left me. And that's when I learned do things for yourself don't do for other people follow your passions right so you are in a broadcasting and you want to be a DJ so in your mind what what is being a DJ mean like spin the tunes in and be the this is nineteen eighty one. And there's it's so odd atheism awesome. Yeah Casey Kasem was was You know the big guy back then with with his top forty show and I had had There was a lot of glamour around it. This was the the dawn of the FM dial you know the peak of of FM radio or the the beginning. Ah The its dominance I should say but am stations. Were still around and people actually listened to them. So I I took doc I took two turntables In a cassette machine and I just made the worst air check in the world. I took it down to our little local radio station which which is a one. Thousand Watt daytime daytime signal. Am Station W. E. K. Y.. which oddly enough? When I moved down here Frank Reinecke also so worked at w. e. when he was in Bryant so We ended up with started at the same station different times legendary. WC Newsman Dan Frankie so I took it into the program director and I said I want to be on the radio. And he's like listen to your tape so we listened to it. He called me that night and he said come on. We're GONNA hire you or I want you here tomorrow so I got two hours of training and he said Okay you think you got it and I said Yeah I bob gotTa give practicing in there and he goes. Oh no you're on the air in ten minutes and I went what any goes. Yep there's the records you plan land. And here's the liners you're doing and I'll see you later. And he left. That was it and it was. It was really sink or swim. You know it was the first record I ever played was Jerry in pacemakers ferry. Cross the Mersey and I had. I've no idea who the heck Jerry. What was the format of the station? It was AC adult contemporary okay. So we were playing. You know sweet judy. Blue Eyes and you you know the Beatles all over the place and some current stuff John Whatever it was was popular than some. BG's would still be going going strong drawn forgotten. Who I was playing? I had no idea who they were. So I'm trying to do the ALTRO. This record and trying to read the label which is spinning around forty five revolutions per minute and it was just a train wreck. I think I dropped a bad word there and nobody called. Nobody noticed and I thought well my radio career is done. It's over with and fun while it lasts. It was fun while the last I. I changed my name to Bill Bradley because I thought I had already had to have a radio name. The program director calls me because I just started I break. Yeah you're GonNa do better net and what's what bill. Oh Bradley and I said why needed radio name he goes you gotTA RADIO NAME SO I was Bill Bradley for one break on the radio and then it went back to Bill Kelly. I that makes sense because we'll the name bill. Bradley was already taken it was. I didn't know that there was an NBA player. The players senators or senator right remaining senator by then I don't even even know it's I just made something but yeah that that was my foray into radio and that was thirty five almost thirty four years ago. Yeah so I assume if it wasn't then it was soon at some part of you fell in love with the process and radio. Even though the whole thing. Yeah it was really the creative process I loved and still love writing. Commercials doing commercials working with sound effects. Creating voices is doing accents and coming up with with acting. Yeah it's acting on the radio people ask me all the time. How did you become an actor? Like I've been ready for twenty. What thirty five? I almost thirty years. You're acting every day I got divorced and I was on the Air I first wife and I we were young and got married Six months into it we went. We probably shouldn't have done this. She moved away and I'm sitting there and I wanted to say it and she wanted to say it and we were dying and I'm like what are we gonNA do lila learn. You know. We're all upset and stuff and I said hang on a second thirteen forty little and I go back to the phone. Yeah and that's acting so it's like every day you have to walk in hang your problems up on the hook behind the studio door and you walk in there and he comes on sure you have to be on and you have to talk to one on one with one person at one time and say how's your day going because mine's great and I hope you have a good one too and if not come back here we'll play some music together and win a prize or something like that entertained. If I good music they are engaged in discussion and when they turn that radio on you are you know they're your best friend. Obviously with technology and things the platform is changed. The delivery system has changed. Do you think radio still has has that kind of place in the lives of people. Absolutely I yeah you know it really does and I think it's actually a little bit more of an escape than it used to be radios or you go to engage and find out what's going on in town so the delivery system has changed a little bit but but the radio is still very viable because you find out what's going on in the world with entertainment to find out the latest news. Did you find out the traffic. And that's been consistent since the beginnings of Radio Right. There's an intimacy about two right because it is someone's talking to you someone is is talking to you and and I don't know if you've ever gone to sleep with radio on Sure but it's somebody that's sitting there. Having having a discussion with you be it. You know announced a year or not they could be telling you information or talking about the some star somewhere but it is a one on one so what brought you to Tallahassee in one thousand nine hundred eighty six radio I had gone. I've only worked at five radio stations in the thirty five year career. which if you know anything about radio that sounds crazy is nuts because there are people that I know that move there at fifteen different radio Jio stations but I? I laughed Richmond and I went to Lexington and worked there and then I went to Iowa. I don't know why for three three months found out way that was way to cold Amu Benton Kentucky in nineteen eighty four. I got hired in Bainbridge and then I got a call from the ninety four nine. TNT in Tallahassee saying you've ever done country. I said No. I haven't but be willing to listen. And they hired me to do to be the music director and come in and develop the radio station and did you like country music I did. I came in at a time. Where eh it goes back to the you know the race track in my dad I learned about country music and had been exposed to it for many years prior but Yeah Love I love country music. Love getting to meet a lot of these people. They came through town I mean omit the stars Dolly Parton called my mother. You know for me as favor Garth Brooks a couple times. Should I think many concerts that came through town conway twitty George Jones. It was just a very you know then you had things like the country music head fanfare which was a big event Nashville where the country music audience the country music audience. You could go and meet. The stars of country makes its popularity even more understandable because it's accessible yet right. Yeah you could. Could you know there are many times. Where after a concert that somebody would come out and sign autographs out in the front lobby and you also spend time as a music director? Rector I mean a program director. I wore a lot of hats. Yeah I Tell me about all the hats you were in the radio station I Did dead commercials wrote commercials. Did Promotions developed. The promotions got prizes for the promotions. I was the music Nick Director. I which is music director picks the songs that the radio stations GonNa play and I was a program director for a the time I was morning. Show middays afternoons and nights. So there's not too much of that station that I haven't done and now into sales so so it's And I'm you know still do a job on the air on the weekends just for fun. I work at ten to three shift on a Saturday on Saturdays. And I just have fun with it you know but I still get people heard you on the radio you know. Wow as need her on the radio and so it tells me that people people are still in tuned. There's still checking it out there. Still you know following the radio stations and I did want to touch on in one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty-eight eight you received a nomination from using director of the year. I was nominated for music director of the year it was it was surreal. You know it was like wow. Aw that's kind of cool so you went to the ceremony and I didn't go to the ceremony. Oddly enough. That's one of the big things of radio was to have have that ability to get nominated So I didn't get to go to the ceremony because they only take the winner. They knew who the winner will. Yes well they yeah they they Once they announced the nominations they they will die down to three and then they announced the witter prior to the CNA so knew who it was in advance Rudy Fernandez at a Texas. I hate you. You're still better not that I'm better anymore but it was just you know it was. It's really what they say it's being nominated is such a huge honor and I think the plaque I got a sheet of paper with the logo on its bill. Kelly nominated for music director of the year. small-market I WANNA get those accolades. It's fun to do it. But it doesn't defied define who I am. I would like to think that being being a part of somebody's making a difference in their life is what I'd much remorse. Yeah it's a lot more important. Yeah that's great right so I know you were Jed Clampett so I don't know if that's that's where you caught the acting bug or when did you decide. That acting was going to be something that you were going to pursue. You know it was it was. It was a stage production. Which I've to this day? That is the only stage production I have ever done. People ask all all the time. Well it isn't it. I'd be nervous wreck if I was in cleaning or something like that Quincy Monticello Tallahassee their community theaters all over the place. Yeah and they're great. I love watching them. We're going to go to Monticello and watch one coming up in forgot who it is but yeah it's great. It's just not me you know theater is a whole different thing. It's six weeks of rehearsals every night. And it's and it's there's a lot that goes into it so I really respect that people do and I've got a lot of friends that are that are into theater but yeah it was Jed Clampett and you know in Richmond Kentucky. You didn't have local Wolf Theater. You didn't have avenues to explore where you could go and do theater or or any type of film school play. Basically that was pretty a bunch yet until about two thousand and three that we got a facts into the radio station that said open auditions uh-huh Fsu film school. And I will never forget that day. I stood there and looked at that thing and I went. I'm doing this is my first opportunity in years. There's to go and explore something. I have such a passion for and so I went down. I auditioned open audition. That was scared to death. So I I I did that and I got a couple calls for. I think it was an extra once on a film ever do that again. No WHO experts no extras and then I get a film that I was one of the lead actors on. That was horrible. I was awful call. It film was good. I was just I looked. You know you're always your own worst critic but I love the now and I'm like Oh man so I I kept kept auditioning every time. The opportunity came up. It's twice a year and I made sure I went notation every time to be fresh and to get skills on being room with people in auditioning live in person long story short after about thirty short films in numerous competition commercials and finally had enough to put together and after I got divorced I said I am going to try now to get an agent to get a good agent. You have to have a referral. I didn't learn that immediately but I was. I knew I was gonna be perceived going cold to an agent to represent me. Yeah it's I ah if not to get about a really good. I had an agency in Nashville. That wanted to hire me so I drove to Nashville and I did a cold read for them and they said well we like you. We WanNa sign you but what we have a car commercial from the dealership here that these to be done when you're not available and I went car commercial. You're not guys for me so it I had done a film at Florida State. Were I found a local film actress. who had a good agent and had been doing some good stuff so I asked Her for referral she referred me to provide talent in Orlando Tracy Went down to read for her and she said I'll let you know two two weeks go by and I hadn't heard anything so I thought well shoot email out tours. Thanks for considering me La. She writes back. Oh I forgot to call you. I'm signing you okay. Good it and then it kind of took off from there and it was shortly thereafter that it. It really started to lessen the importance of the follow up. Email the importance of the final Whoopi. Happy meal yes all the time. Don't en- don't go with the first person that wants to stir to wants to sign. You also want to point out that you know you being in Tallahassee. I mean Florida. State's got one of the premier colleges of Motion Picture Arts or when you this this opportunity for tuning wouldn't have happened anywhere. It would not have happened if it weren't for that film's going. I cannot thank that film school enough for what they allowed me to do. Do because it was in again people ask me all the time. How can I get into acting and do the work go get in front of you did like thirty five movies before I write doing professional staff? And it's like you gotta do the work so I can get me in this film no. I can't get you in this film. Ah First of all I'm nobody I'm just a actor But you have to have the work of I had a lady that is a friend of mine that had come to me and she said ahead. We're GONNA get our son into films and television like you and I said really. What's he done so far and she said nothing? We got an agent now. So He's GonNa get all that for us and I said well it doesn't really work that way you have to. You have to have the work before you can get the agent I'm GonNa you know it's a catch twenty two but you gotta get in front of you know some type of filmmaker somewhere and said you should really run because what's going to happen is you're going to get this agents going to quote sign you and then it's well you need headshots their only three hundred hundred dollars and we will take care of that for a while. He needs acting lessons. That's five hundred. We're GONNA take care of that for you and of course runway. You can't do anything without that and and adjust it's it's a scam because they wanna make money off of you the way. An actor's agent works. Is they make money when you make money. So if my agent gets me job I cut a check for ten percent not the other way around and so I think a year and a half later later I happened to see her cascades park and she said we should listen to you and I said how much it costs you. She said Oh about fifteen thousand dollars. Wow and they. You are so hyped up about their kids being into movies and getting into film that they're spewing out the money and not realizing that there's nothing coming back back probably never will.

Thanks again for listening now back to the show so two thousand twelve you get your first professional role in burn notice right. Yeah I can't remember which was I. I think I shot pain gain I. I'm not sure I add auditioned for a couple of things like right. They're back to back and it was I remember I did one. I did pain and gain. I think I and I went to Miami and my very first professional gig I of I thought I'd gotten a different part so I go down there and I'm thinking I'm one guy and I'm actually the other guy And my first job is you know. Mark Wahlberg Dwayne Johnson. Anthony Mackie and directed by Michael Bay. Who likes to blow things out? I said blow things up and so I didn't and have a lot of lines but it was a you know a memorable little scene and I I didn't even know family the film I'm one of those things. Where you you do it? You go out and get cut out and then a friend of mine. That went to film. School is out in. La At the editing house. That is editing. The film and he happens to walk by the door of the guy. Editing part of the film that was in and he messes me as. Oh my God I just walked by this guy's door there. You are on the screen. And that's how I found out that I actually made it into the film. Yeah it was a really good experience. I mean we had a lot of fun set. Got To know some some people and got to watch the process and more than anything I could to learn from these great people. It was funny because they brought in people that were actually living in the neighbourhood. We were at to use them as extras we're invading this meighbourhood. Full a million dollar plus homes and this one guys there. He's probably sixty five seventy years old and he's sitting there talking to mark Wahlberg and he's like so. How long have you been active? You plan on doing this for a living. And he's like you know marks very cool guy and he's like he knows that this guy has no idea any understand and and he's like yeah. Yeah I'm hoping to make a living out of it where you live. Yes Beverly Hill. Oh it's nice out there. Sky had no idea who mark Wahlberg is but I was lucky enough to get to work with Dwayne Johnson again and then Anthony Mackie so and then I got a call to do to go to the audition for burn noticed noticed as I got on the interstate to leave Miami. And she's like. Could you turn around standard the night and do Bernadette audition so I did that. And and that was my first Karadzic's right there. That's awesome so you did that led to a lot of rolls over time. TV movies that flicked series. bloodlines lines. One of my favorites love that show. Yeah people are still watching that show. I was disappointed that it seems like they wrapped it Kinda quickly really add to the incentives. Xenophobes had dried up for Florida and Hold on political jargon here but the guys up there in our legislature decided decided that it wasn't bringing enough money into the state and cut the incentives or didn't renew the incentive so that ended up six seasons from what I understand wrapped up into three so it was short lived. Yeah but it was supposed to go for. They're open. I I. Six seasons halt and catch fire was another one of my favorites. I love the telling of the computer business in Texas during that time in the at the beginning of the Internet and all that stuff. That was a a pretty pretty cool period of time technology. Wise Yeah it was one that You know a lot of people old younger people these days. Don't realize that this team iphone or this. You know laptop or this IPAD that you've got had very humble beginnings you played the heartbroken dad who realized that his information had gotten gotten further than he hoped that is that is the precursor to everything that we know now of your phone getting hacked. Your e mails getting hacked fishing shing online scams. All the stuff started with the chat rooms and all of a sudden. You're private chance really weren't that private and so here. I'm playing a father who had recently lost a son and I'm selling off. Some of his. You know his computer stuff stuff that I really don't know much about. Who's your favorite person? You think you've ever worked with you know. I have been so so blessed that I have not met a jerk yet really I mean Michael Bay was he had a bad reputation for being explosive and and it was a great guy directors. I just work with Ron Howard. Fantastic director Super Nice Guy Worked with George fee on the banker with Anthony Mackie Nicole. They've been fantastic. dwayne Johnson Super Nice Guy Kyle Chandler Enrica Marciano Linda Cartolini all the line bloodline sissies amazing. Sassi's basic yeah Sweet Sweet Lady. I've always kind of wondered about that. If you're not an like an a level superstar actor making the millions and not just the millions park the other parts that the I mean is there a diva ish. nece about it or it. Sounds like everybody's super nice and you're all kind of on the same team in. Everybody works together really well again. I haven't met anybody yet. That has been even remotely close to diva and I say that with all sincerity sissies basic walking into the makeup makeup trailer. My Hair's sticking all sorts of ways. They're cutting it and styling it and she's bringing in her daughter order to meet people. I introduced myself to her again because it met her once before. But I'm like a nobody and she goes. I know who you are a bill and I'm like that's pretty basic just said that to me. Cow Chandler came and knocked on my door the first day of production and said you want to run lines so we went the sheriff's you know the set and went to the sheriff's Office and sit there and talk over the scene and ran over the lines and it was great. I I mean have you ever been star struck by anybody the first time you met them not really you know. I think that goes back to the radio radio portion of it where I got to meet a lot of country music stars and Rock Stars and stuff. That was kind of past that you know. You're always impressed crest. You know when you meet the real person you're like wow so it's you know it's not star struck but it's a lot of respect respect. Yeah so it's May seem like an odd question. Tim But it seems like you have a lot of acting momentum I mean it seems like. You're just getting busier and busier. What do you attribute that to? Why do you think you're getting cast so often it honestly I you know I think it's I mean I think I've got skills but I think I'm not? I'm not the handsome handsome leading man guy. I'm odd-looking I I do have a crooked mouth I look like every other guy that's out there so I think that helps met works to your advantage for this sure and I just I just have a passion for studying it and studying actors in continue now. You always working on it absolutely i. I haven't I think you learn from every actor Out there you know you learn from some of these guys. They're young and you look at what they're doing and there's some amazing younger talent. And then you look at some of the older guys and you look at the the Alba Chino's and the Robert Deniro's and the Sean Penn is an amazing actor to me because he's so he's a chameleon who can change into pretty much any character he wants to do to me he will always be Jeff's coli understand we're seeing he's another thing since then he is. Yeah it's it's amazing because I went back and saw fast times at Ridgemont high. Not Too long ago and I look at that and nets like wow. That was Chess Nicoli and I've seen him in mystic river which was amazing. You play that kind of a mom. I just watched that a milk. which she's The story of Harvey Milk. But he's an amazing actor and a friend of mine just got to work with him and I'm so jealous. She's from here Julie. Moss got to work with him in a series on Hulu. I think it was and then a Johnny Depp. You know but anyway you go back and you look at some of the things is that these people do and it's just You're always learning from every different character. They do I'm curious. Do you get recognized in town by people who don't know you not often no which is good you know it doesn't you know It's it's I'm I'm just me the Radio Radio Guy. I'm just me who goes to church you know can't be roads I'm just me goes through CHICK-FIL-A and like so you're saying you don't have a driver than Yeah No. Yeah it's you know it's I don't get noticed much so it's kind of when somebody does they go. I loved you in if funny story is I was sitting on chick sitting chick-fil-a on Western history and gone over there and I stopped got chickens sitting there looking at my phone mcnuggets. And and this guy walks up as college kid walks goes are you in bloodline and I went. Why yes as a matter of fact I am and thank you and thank thank you for asking and he said I I a friend of mine were just binging that and I looked over and I'm like that can't be and thought I'd ask and I said Yeah it's Kinda weird weird? I never get recognized. It's not you're talking about me being in usually it's one episode here of this show and over there so the odds unless they watch bloodline you'd have to be a real fan of some of those shows. Yes oddly enough. I'm in Miami and somebody came up up and they had tickets for the Miami Dolphins game so I go watch Miami in Green Bay play. There's nobody down there. I know you know so I went by myself. I'm I'm sitting in the middle of this big huge stadium with thousands of people everywhere and I met one of the stand up tables and meet hotdog and this guy walks up and goes. Because weren't you inbar notice on my. How do you do that right? I mean that's like I can't even imagine I'm in one minute of one episode in season six out of all those seasons seasons in this guy recognizes me crazy. Yeah it's really weird.

My Middle Son had purchased purchase these brackets to make workbench out of and he was talking about wanting to build a work bench. And I said well here you go. Here's the brackets. I parts easy. Now go find the would measure out. How much would you go? So you don't have access word. You're not buying too much. And he made one of the best benches I've ever seen in my life and he figured it out on his own and it was just you know I love watching them when the light goes off and they go. Oh I get it now I get it and you know it's that it's that little piece of letting go that you can let them go and know that okay. They're going to be okay okay. Because they've learned how to change the oil. I taught one son how to change a tire. Loves you get to do that until that situation arises but to let them make mistakes. Yeah era and then telling them. It's okay to make mistakes that's how you learn. You'RE GONNA make mistakes. We we all are GONNA make mistakes watching them turn into men and grow grow and go out on their own has been. It's been great so far I got one more to you. You know until he's out on his own and then I got to sit back and do what I want. Yeah I knew what I want anyway right now. You didn't mention Nancy we're talking about Nancy. May who those of us and in the business and he kind of communications or advertising or PR Niyazi from Sinclair and She's an absolute delight to work with and she's a great cook.

She's beautiful. She's a great cook. Did I mentioned that you did you got a sense of style which is why. I don't wear anything I used to wear nor do I have any of the furniture used to have but it's it's been a blessing. Yeah and you mentioned Canopy Roads Cambridge Baptist Church. Tell me the role of faith in life huge. You know it's sad. The people don't like religion as much as the younger people today. We are pastors fantastic Matt Hall. We had a an excellent service on Sunday and it was talking about fanaticism of religion and how people point the finger and go Bible verse this and Bible Verse I. That says you shouldn't do this and you shouldn't do that and how they're labeled religious fanatics and what they actually need is more religion in their life because as Christianity is not based on pointing the finger in judging other people. It's it's accepting other people and it's is loving other people and knowing that other people have rights no matter who they are what background they came from they love. Those people should be priority one in your life because they're just like everybody else so plays a it plays a big part Took me through some tough times. Divorces in financial issues in power prior to me is huge. You know I talk to God on a daily basis Every night when I go to sleep I thank him for another day and learn to pray. You'll be shocked. David how will it can. Do you got problems. Let them go hand him up. I set a parking lot. Cryan my eyes up because because I was going through this horrible time in my life and I said I can't do anymore you take it you take it and it's it was it worked out so it's it's a big part of my life and I. I love taking my kids. I love inviting people to Church told me afraid to go to church. The people aren't going to judge you. You know it's it's The ones who do need more religion in their life they need to be the ones who listen more and learn to love. More looking backward is the one person were thing that has changed or altered the trajectory of your life. Most I really want to say probably one of two things that senior play change my direction and then seeing that facts or sitting at that table and making that decision that I wanted to be a DJ and not not telling not doing what somebody else told me. They wanted me to doer expected of me. Because it's my dad said don't be a DJ Jay. You'll never make any money. It's not a career while I was thirty five years ago and he'll sit down at the table. Thoreau that that he dished after them. When you know he's more than happened to say? Well I was wrong me. Although those three things have in common is that you were faced with making a leap into something that was Outside of your normal who you you know what you normally did. Yeah the the I was I was so so shy. Prior to that senior play in I was so Unsure of myself. You know. I didn't want to hurt anybody. Anybody or mess up and be embarrassed I think it was. You know those areas of taking that leap of faith in going. I'm going to try it. No matter what K- last question the name of this podcast is how I got here. Where do you think here is going to be for you three to five years from now? You know I've got some good projects that are coming out I think the here is probably going to be A little bit more into the film dilmun television part of it. I don't want to jinx myself but hopefully that'll be more more work. I've got to projects that are coming out. That if they keep all my scenes Will be good bank. The banker close the AFC film. It's film festival at Grauman's Chinese theatre in L. A.. I've got six scenes in there with Nicole. Anthony Mackie the Samuel Jackson and then I not sure if it is absolute positive gonNA play but I feel my dad within hatheway. I've got a seam with her. That called the last thing what they'll be on Netflix. And that'll be if it goes according to plan. I think they're trying to get it to debut two premier at the Sundance so. Hopefully those two things will help you know my career but auditioning like crazy and you'd probably forty auditions year if you get to do a pretty good so hopefully it'll be more the film.

"It's called l. One named after lebron apparently and It has been discovered by some chinese scientists and they said it is a seventy solar mass stellar black hole. I don't know what that means It is fifteen thousand light years from earth which is really just out in the corner and celestial talk but the It's weird how we never seen it but it just goes to show you what's right under our nose. The other thing is. I believe that that black hole is the what you really looking at is just the hope for oakland. A.'s fans that the team will stay. I think that's actually what got discovered there. That's aw one. Eight hundred eight seven. Eight p l a y. You ain't got no album by you up you ugly. What p. l. I think it's funny. Like if you just type into google you think all this might be the top story. I typed in black to hear about the black hole. The three top choices where black lagoon black widow and black clover and then black billionaire are the things that are trending a little bit more right now. One eight hundred eight seven. Apla one eight hundred eight seven eight seven five two nine. By the way the movie the black hole nineteen seventy-nine not good and remember we were coming offline star wars and so we all went to the black hole and it was just movie with ernest borgnine and it was a ship that was headed towards a black hole and it just really showed a bunch of old people. Having dinner it was one of the pulse boring bar movies sports in the second. But that's the way these movies used to work. They had to throw in tons of dialogue that had thrown a love interest to thrown some side story about you know romance or something so i gotta keep the girls interested him. I think the girls be okay with action movie. I don't think the girls require some sort of romance but loses formulaic but there was a Remember there was a movie when i was a kid about a horrible wreck on a freeway and it was a made for. Tv movie forgot. It was called pile up or something and they build it as. Oh you're going to see a hundred cars crash on the freeway. Like nineteen seventy four seventy five and what. It was two hour movie and for an hour and fifty five minutes. It just showed characters going about their daily existences and dialogue of non sequiturs. And then the last five minute buddy. Epson who was of course jed clampett he was driving on the freeway and with his wife and he went Heart attack anyone head on the steering wheel and then it turned around and you could tell it with some old section la freeway they closed and everybody crashed into each other like three miles per hour. The special effects. I mean we used to think. Ray harry housing and for the time ray harry house and was awesome. He was the guy that would do claymation speaking of violence. And this ain't funny Well just on the basis of this to you. Know we had the introduction of chauncey billups in portland yesterday and the owners there and just emphatically going over and over and over and over again that you know cianci from that You know that domestic abuse You know he was never charged but the whole thing in one thousand nine hundred seven We vetted him he's the best guy ever this. We made sure we would never hire a wife beater. We would never hire somebody. And and then cianci said. Let me just address this. That was my girlfriend at the time she became my wife. I've it's shaped me. It's learned so much. Every day of my life i think of it. I think about how. I could have done things differently and i almost felt like look. It is good to address it. And it's good to get it out there. But i think a little. It was a little too much like when you say. I think about it every day in my life. Don't you want to downplay it a little bit. Don't you want to say it was a huge misunderstanding. I mean i married her. Why would she marry me. If i was a wife beater and it was not proud of that day. But you know it wasn't as bad as everyone said. Obviously instead i think about it every day. I don't know i thought it was a little. It didn't seem as innocuous as it was. But these apology tours. I think the most hilarious. And i do mean. Ha ha funny was when jeffrey toobin got back on what was it. Msnbc or whatever he was on he was the guy that pleasure to himself while his zoom camera was on and so he was at the anchor desk couple of weeks ago. And the ladies. Like jeffrey toobin is back and geoffrey. You made some news didn't you. And he like Certainly did okay. Why don't you just explain what was going on. And he's like first of all. I obviously didn't know my camera was on second of all. I'm i'm taking steps to be a better person to be a better man. I'm ashamed and i'm like you're ashamed of that. You didn't rob a bank. Just you can be embarrassed but what now. You're a filthy man because you do that. I mean it was the most ridiculous paul and he had to act like he drove his car into a petting zoo or something to say. I apologize for how my camera on. That was humiliating in almost ended my career. But i'm back. You're going to apologize and then say i'm going to try and be a better man and i that's not me. I'm not like that. I don't do that okay. Well now we have. Trevor bauer trevor. Bauer who wants missed the playoffs star for the indians because he was playing with his drone is that a euphemism I wish it was. But now trevor bauer who lives his whole life on social media. He likes to stir the cry remember. He was such a pain in the butt that the diamondbacks traded him to cleveland less than a year after they drafted him as a top five. Pick because he was such a weirdo. All work out of my own. Don't tell me what to do. Don't give me your trainers. don't give me you nutritionists. Leave me alone. I do what i wanna do. You guys suck i rule. Well it's not fun and games anymore because he is being investigated for assault. When i first heard this. I thought i hope it's a guy in a bar saying hey trevor. Bauer giants fan or a padres. Fan dodgers suck and then he liked takes a swing at him. I just hope it was something like that. Which is not great. But it's not horrible but mlb is looking into a report. Now this is from the washington post as the dodgers have issued a statement deferring to the league but the woman's a twin attorney is named mark Gillick and he says that His client sought and obtained an order for protection from the court against mr bauer under the domestic violence. Prevention act after she suffered severe physical and emotional pain following a recent assault. Now bowers agent john. Federal f- issued a statement to espn. And he said quote mister. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by the woman beginning in april twenty twenty one in the days following their second and final encounter. The woman shared photos of herself and indicated that she sought medical care for a concussion. Mr bauer responded with concern and confusion and the woman was neither angry nor accusatory mister bower and the woman have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other and over six weeks any allegations that the perez encounters were not one hundred percent. Consensual are baseless defamatory and we'll be refuted to the fullest extent of the law so one person under the condition of anonymity said she got roughed up in rough sex and it had happened twice and that's how she got the concussion during rough sex yes. I know it's nine fifty in the morning. And i'm saying rough sex for the third time i apologize. The dodgers have issued the following statement. The dodgers were made aware of the allegations against trevor. Bauer late this afternoon and immediately contacted major league baseball. Which will be handling this matter. The dodgers take of this nature very seriously but will have no further comment at this time. Mlb as far as i'm looking on my clock has not issued a statement yet. Now we know how great. Trevor bauer was last year in between the lines. We know that the year before when franco tito francona went to relieve him on the bump in cleveland. He threw the ball over the centerfield fence. Which i thought was pretty impressive. That was the last ball he threw for. The indians was the one into the stands but he went to the reds in a trade. He won the cy young award. And i thought why are the reds getting a rental. Well think out a rental. They didn't win the world series. And then that guy walked Back home to so cal because he signed with the world. Champion dodgers three years one hundred and two million dollars now. Obviously only two people know the story only two. And that's why i always hate it when we see people standing outside the courtroom saying you guilty son of a b. you guilty woman gold digger or you're a dirty you know criminal. And they just chock conclusions on their own. I don't know. I have no idea what this is. No idea what it is. But the thing is when you Where the scarlet letter people will just immediately assume remember the whole hashtag believe women which is a dumb hashtag because women are half the pop more than half the population of the earth. And you can't believe everyone it'd be like saying believe men but will believe women means is. It's time to start taking this seriously. That's what i think. Believe women mean but some people take it quite literally and every single. I mean. look at the duke lacrosse team. That was a lie. I think very few of these are lives. But i think there could be a fine line between what bauer thought she was into and he was into and then her getting a concussion and then six weeks later saying you know what i still have a headache. It's time for me to press charges. So it's an ugly situation for everybody involved in. Hopefully the truth comes out and It's resolved without getting more idly i- rectal. We'll take a quick break.

Avid cyclist is just. Our way of life here is now. It's one thing to putter around town on a bike. I can do that. When did you find out that you have the endurance and the speed and that world class athletic ability actually really find my tolerance in sports until school. I ran cross country. And and that's where i discovered my competitive our and my talent for endurance. Sports and i competed at a high level. School can gently wasn't that time. All american at uc berkeley. And then i ran professionally actually for four years after i graduated Which culminated and the trials. Twenty sixteen at a really appointing race.

Coast to coast around the world on american forces radio network. It's our great pleasure to welcome phil france to this. Show the man behind logistics and the charity fundraiser racing to end alzheimer's which Last year brought in more than four hundred thousand dollars. One hundred percent of which has gone to the care and cure for alzheimer's disease phil welcome to the show and i know this all got off the ground because it touched. Your family didn't it. It did rick and thank you for having us on the show. I appreciate the opportunity to talk to your listeners. And have them here in the message. yes my wife. Mimi is a victim of early onset. Alzheimer's she is in a protein. The eight year of her journey. Through this Disease she was diagnosed when she was sixteen years old. Wow what are just as an aside. And i know you know we're not doctors. You know more about this than than i do I have heard so many theories over the years about what causes alzheimers. Are we a little bit closer to the 'cause there's still a lot of activity and in research trying to understand the cause and and obviously looking for pretense and and And of course that's the ultimate But no it's not really known. In my case my wife made me is a the child so we don't have that opportunity to look back and your family history and see if this is occurred in other generations And sometimes it may be just bad luck to something happened in in your brain tissue and you and you start developing these pro teams. That are because of it and next thing you know. You have Rain cells that are just careening. As as you go. So it's it's it's a cool thing but it has our family and and I just grateful that. I have read extra year with me every opportunity to be around her. Now being part of the racing community as you are you know about the value of getting a sponsor you know on a car an logo and you think about instead of logos. Maybe people's names their hometowns and this is how this all started up. Yeah yeah it did. So i've been sponsoring racecars for more than a decade now in Sports car racing were currently running a bmw m. Four the gt four series called the world challenge But in any case you're absolutely right. The motorsports business is based on people. You know spending marketing hours to put their company name their logo as their brand on the car and pay handsomely to do that and I decided you know. Sort of dawned on me one time. it's a track. I said wait a minute. What if we put names of people on the car in place of those corporate names you know. What could we do. So i founded The ratio alzheimer's foundation on that premise. And what we do is we ask. Somebody make a donation to our foundation of two hundred fifty dollars and we put the name and hometown of that person so that they can be honored By their family and their friends and they go on the car and they are in the car for the whole racing season and at the end of the year of we take those funds and my company logistics matches those from a one to one basis. And that's the way we're able to Provide grants out to organizations. That are doing good work and in this regard. Come more questions for phil. Franks of logistics racing to and alzheimer's. How surprised were you during the pandemic when you know it was hard for nonprofits five. Oh one c. Threes and people were losing their jobs left. And right that you still had the kind of output. You did raise the kind of money you did last year while we did something a little bit different Once the racing schedule was put on postpone we had run one race at daytona and we were getting ready to go to see brinker x rays and all of a sudden everything went pause We try to figure out what to do you know. We felt badly that we taking donations to grow people's names on. We didn't know we were next gonna race so the help and generosity of bmw north america. They long does a bmw m. Four streak version of the car. We raised and we went on the road. called our tour the road again tour and we started daytona at the international speedway there and we drove across the country. We ended up. We're gonna seca in bothering the weathertech raceway and through that we added names all the way across the country with people aware of what we were doing and coincidentally enough. I'm in the midst of that right now. We started our second on the road. Again tour. at pikes peak at the ninety. Nine twenty the international hill. Climb which took place last sunday and I just left busy Donors and friends. That are late. And i'm on my way down to sacramento. I pulled off the road. So i can talk with you again and we're doing again We're we're going to go across the country. We're gonna run nine thousand miles this year. We will end up at road. America on august. Twenty eight at our next race Elkhart lake is where wrote. America is in wisconsin so monroe trying to raise awareness and reach out to our donors. And what other people what we're doing. You mentioned matching at one to one. In which is a very generous thing. And that's not just out of your wallet. You have a lot of donors and sponsors helping out.

Eight hundred eight seven eight play one. Eight hundred eight seven eight five to nine when it comes to reality. Tv it's well. it's ubiquitous. Is it not right and Most reality tv is not reality because you have people who are more victimized than they usually be or they would act braver than they would usually be and they would act out you say some. Oh we got charlie on the phone. Let's go to charlie. Who's in new york city. What's going on charlie. Hey what's going on buddy. What just add a little to what you were talking about. How young actors Some of them weren't admiring somebody Some of the older classic actors. I also think that applies to for me personally actors. Who will do hitter stage. I i i have a special admiration for actors who will get on. You know do a clay. And i think there's something to be said about an actor who can bring the same performance seven eight times a week and As opposed to let you know. I'm not taking anything away from any film actors especially the great ones but always called. Obviously cre- kobe when people like al pacino top you know decide to do some stage a play or before. He was disgraced. kevin spacey. You know seeing him on stage doing theater resigned. Just always thought that was kinda cool anyway. That's my two cents about that. Yeah land charlie. I found out A couple of days ago Radio row for the army navy game as we're on the friday before the game every setup does all the interviews. And what i did and in philly i did it in the pennsylvania convention center now wondering where i was going to do it in new york and i've found out where radio rose going to be in new york and it's about as cool as it gets. It's going to be on the intrepid. Oh i i can pull out my window and land on the intrepid. Almost what's it like fortieth street right. Yeah forty forty. Yeah forty forty i. I think you're right on the river. Yeah literally around the corner for eighty six or whatever. Yeah awesome that's cool. That's very cool. Intrepid that very cool bruschi absolutely man. Absolutely have you ever been on the intrepid. No i haven't and i. Of course. I you know my dad was a navy officer. I've been so many carriers and i didn't over to that part. I was at chelsea piers. But i never got over to The intrepid so. It's pretty exciting definitely i. I've been on their lot of time with my kid only in six months but still some look forward to absolutely absolutely Couple of quick sports things Notes basketball. I listen. I couldn't get out of the game last night. Especially when a trae young jaanus not not not not too. I mean. listen. I'm I like watching Basketball football with backup quarterback. Almost i mean. The game was exciting but i couldn't. I guess it shows at least for media. Mba's rule really star driven league because without without at least one of them were a couple of guys on the court last night game. Didn't hold any interest for me. I mean i put it on. I check the scores out but I mean going forward. If either team is without their star in the next round. I don't i think. Phoenix chris paul get his first title but so i i don't know what you're saying i agree with you. I think the sons are going to be the team to beat. And it's it's weird to say that. But i was just thinking you know if it It might be milwaukee now of course but. If if it's hawks sons i mean i think mike silver or i should say david silver adam silver adamson adam silver my jump out of that window in manhattan because it's the song starpower putting my says Like on morning because it's like they don't know what to do. There's no withdrawn no curry. No none other than other big stars and Real quick hockey point listen. I didn't think the canadians had much of a chance But you can clearly see i. I mean after game one. Look like it looked like the canadians. Were just happy to be. There and tampa bay was all business The canes were maybe especially against a team like tampa. You can't make mistakes Game one out of hand late but i. It's the first time in all four series that carry prices being played abascal s. How do you say basketball. Esky is out playing kerry Me let up a couple of goals. That were definitely save -able and letting game to stay. Hello i think we lost charlie la all right. I think we lost charlie there Anyway charlie give me a call back if you can't one eight hundred eight seven. Play the Yeah it's not. I mean it's not like Carey price has been poorer. He's only given a few goals. It's it's just that the The the canadians were so hot. And but you know there's just more talent on tampa bay and it's shining through and it's a little bit boring to me. That tampa bay might be winning again. as i was mentioning reality. Tv is kind of is the phone line still up here some kind of squeaking or some and there it is thank you that tampa bay are sorry reality shows. Mulligan are never really reality but the closest we can get to a real show is hard knocks and that's because these guys are already used to having cameras in their face. That doesn't mean everybody's always gonna. I mean we've seen a lot more clowning and goofing off than you probably would see but they an hbo just announced who they're going to have this year and once a freaking again. It's the cowboys and the cowboys aren't just getting dak prescott back. They're getting america's team is getting. Hbo back. and so they'll be heading out there to oxnard and that's gonna debut august tenth. It's the twentieth anniversary of the show. And it's the third time that it's been dallas. They were on an oath to an. Oh wait that. Was that dave campo team and cause i watch all of them even teams i hate like the chiefs. I watch all of them and still to me as i said. This is the twentieth anniversary. The fact that every team hasn't gone yet is stupid now. Of course there are ways out. If you have a new coach you don't have to go and if you're a playoff team you don't have to go and if you've been on before you don't have to go so i don't know who the list was out of that. That was left. But the fact that we've had the bengals twice and we've had the ravens twice it it makes sense to me that the bagan the bagels the bagels the ravens and the bengals have gone twice but Look jerry jones is smart. You know these coaches i remember. Reggie mckenzie was asked for the raiders. How about hard knocks on. Hugh jackson goes. Yeah i really really hope. They don't pick us where we're trying to do some work here. And of course when jon gruden had it that was up in napa. And i didn't get in. I thought they'd have me on I didn't i really didn't but anyway i was that a lot of those practices but that was the whole antonio bryant deleo that went on in their camp came in a hot air balloon I fried my feet in cryogenic chamber and france. I don't like the helmets is just a mess. And he never played a down in the regular season for oakland at that time but still the head of Nfl films ken. Rogers he said quote. I can say that there were a few teams that were in deep discussions both on the list and off the list in the end. It's like a calculus. It really became a three way partnership between the team. Hbo and nfl films and the cowboys felt like the right team this year. And certainly jerry jones and the cowboys were excited to do it. Because mr jones is on the forefront of the league's effort to get us back on the field what better. Way to rebound from america's tough twenty twenty. America had a tough twenty twenty. America's game had a tough twenty twenty and america's team had a tough twenty twenty so it only feels right that we feature the cowboys who are a representative of all of us and trying to make a better twenty twenty one. Thank you for that long winded quote. Ken rogers he's not done the cowboys and one of the most storied franchises in nfl history and a team that elicited strong reactions from fans around the world tens of millions of fans love them but just as many people love to hate them either way when the cowboys show up people watch which makes them perfect for a hard knocks. This year are high profile. Status as america's team is paired with uniquely interesting story lines. We can't thank mr jones and coach mccarthy enough for letting us tell the story behind what we hope is the beginning of an exciting year in dallas. Well we know that leave. Schreiber is now the it doesn't sound like either does but he's the guy that will voice it. How many camera people are with. I remember seeing them all over the place in napa thirty people. Thirty people and Last time they had hard knocks they had one thousand seven hundred and fifty hours of footage. And you've got to knock that down to five hours once again. That's why when there's so much useless garbage and that show. I'm like this is one of ours you picked or one of the whatever five minutes you picked one thousand seven hundred and fifty hours but was six ten. Last year mike mccarthy his first year prescott is back. I mean look. Prescott ezekiel elliott amari cooper. Ceedee lamb that's a nice offense. There isn't it. yes now actually. I do know the other ones who are eligible to appear the donkeys the cardinals the giants and the panthers so You know look. I'm surprised they didn't pick the giants to tell you the truth.

I said i thought we'd see more than uptick. Really when you tell everybody that vegas is great. You think everybody's going to russia gates but the latest brouhaha is that Tonight they're going to have fireworks after their game with the red sox and they've already sold Thirty five thousand tickets. But they've stopped sales. Because bart says the last train is going to be at ten twenty four. They're not gonna extend service. They're not gonna run till midnight like they usually do. And although they had extended service in downtown san francisco giants fans for their fireworks. Night so dave cavill tweeted bar. And then bart said screw you And parts said if you wanna take bard home the last train you better be on that platform at ten ten. Which means you'll get most of the game in but you will not get the fireworks. And i mean last year. This always happens and believe me. I worked so many of these games when those fireworks whenever there's fireworks it's either a four hour game or extra innings are both last year went thirteen innings the as one on a walk off but yet another thing to make oakland sour and the as sour.

He's at cobbs It's funny i remember when. Oj got out there. A couple of comedians. Like man i i. I wish i hadn't done them jokes now that he's out so with with cosby out. Did you have any cosby like chunk that you didn't work anymore. No no man i am. I didn't have anything any hot takes on cosby. I feel like you know when when reality is that ridiculous. It's the joke you know. There's no work to be done. The just wrote it so we kind of had that to what the last president i mean. He was every day on twitter. He was providing so much material. And i know some people. Their whole life was responding to that and now they don't you don't have that anymore right crazy that job because of different pressings president. You're not actually funny. And what do you think about. See to me. Comedy is our and you either like art or you don't but you don't cancel it and so to me. It's one thing for people saying you know you can't do a joke about this. You can't do talk about that but to me it's really upsetting when i see comedians policing each other and i have found. It's usually the comedians who aren't successful. That are trying to shut people up comedian. That aren't funny I think that comedy has to low data entry. I mean it doesn't take much to start calling comedian. But i'm believe to by your guingona actually find. I don't think they try to cancel people. You know like patrice. O'neal like good johnson bags. Come from the same place we know. We don't know if it's gonna work right you got. We should be begin. Should be given the chance to try to make something. Funny it also. I think some people don't understand you don't have a monopoly on how on how you deal with trauma. Some some people have been doing something messed up. They need the joke so they can feel better so they can get something so because some particular subject effectively doesn't give you the right to stop people talking about you. Know no doubt. And i i would think your background. You know the way you a foster child. And then you are a member of the united states marines. By the way we're on american forces radio networks so some fellow a fellow Leather necks might be listening right now but That someone who's been through all that. I mean i guess you know. You're you're used adversity and dealing with it. Yeah and i'm also used to being in situations where things upset me. That i can't do anything about you. Know like that's what you real fast when the military if you gotta learn how to just move passing so you don't have the power to stop it. Just gotta deal with it. You know right. I think a lot of these kids. They you know they. They used to like running on twitter even tattle tailing And and it doesn't help them with their problem solving skills. You know one thing that happens a lot in sports. I know what happens with comedians as well as you might start off with a couple of guys and gals and and all of a sudden. They're getting sitcom or they're they're getting the. Hbo special whatever and they always say. Compare and despair but you kind of like did you think like my time's gonna come and it and it did but what's coming up and that kind of friendly competition you know it's awesome. I mean i think you need people around. You are push him. You know and my grandma always come. Comparison is the thief of joy. So you know you gotta gotta go into it understanding that everyone pass. Everyone doesn't have the same path you know and And a lot of taking put too much time worrying about where they want to be instead of enjoying. Where are you know as soon as you start making money from this of you've already won and everything else is random. You have no control over. Who notices you. Or what what they're looking for at the time you know so i never really been jealous of other comics on the only really bothers me when someone that isn't funny get something but i get real quick right and of course something. That's really risen up the last couple of years especially with the time that we've had on our hands because of the pandemic is the podcast. So tell me about yours. apple podcast. Basically Of called bs ransom. So i give. I give advice to people that writers than i do obscure black history facts and i talk about about weird news. That isn't in the in the mainstream headlines. Can you give me a little. What would it be like a weird black history anecdote Weird well here's one Harriet tubman no. Yeah yeah so she's she. She used to carry a pistol weather all times. And it's kind of hanging because the famous isn't a lot of pictures but a lot of people think the pistol was to fight off slave catchers but it was really to shoot people that tried to go back. Wow yeah she's like you're going going with guy going back. Wow so No she was. She's bad at no doubt Last question for you on your twitter it says. Call your mama. Which i think is cool because i think some comedians might wrote my right leg. I'm a call your so when you say call your mama you just you just trying to be nice to for people to remember their their moms. 'cause i 'cause sometimes you know especially and show you get so caught up running around you get like that's what really matters like all your mom is never that i did you know and it sort of resets me but i would never become a mom sisters.

You can't be serious. You cannot be serious. Stay rick tittle is a majestic stallion doubt in your voice only about Four or five minutes left in extra time between spain and switzerland still at one nil getting closer to penalty kicks and As the Their spa spain playing with the man advantage. Ten men for fights and Zoema their goalie heroic so far We'll keep you updated One eight hundred eight seven eight play. What do you do when you have first round. Picks in the nba. Well a lot of times if you're not picking near the top and they're really not gonna do much. I mean the nba draft has used to be fifteen rounds. I went to like seven five and now the nba draft his simply two rounds in the second round. You don't even get a contract for sure but if you look at the playoffs right now devon booker trae young andrea aiden. These young guys you think. Wow who in this draft can be like that cade cunningham. Evan mobely jalen. Green jalen sucks because of that quality of those four guys. We have more rumors going on than ever when it comes to that. And one of those teams of course are my warriors. Because the warriors if everyone's healthy basically staff and clay and clay's miss two seasons andrey and mr Wiggins if he's still around that they think that they cannot just be a playoff team but a contend for a championship and they have lottery picks at seven and at fourteen and last year they pick number two overall and took james wiseman now according to the athletic something we talked about a couple of days ago there was a rumor of the number seven pick and wiseman to get pascal ceac him but then hearing other. No that'd be wiggins too because you have to make the money match up so we also heard about the satisfaction with damian lillard in portland that to me. Can you play three guys like that. Even a player like ben simmons could be available. Do you wanna bring a guy like that. So the warriors are heavily involved in these rumors but the thing i think that's interesting for the rockets is what they're going to do at to some ears. You just have to guys on the draft. And you don't know who to take sort of like the peyton manning ryan leaf thing. Believe it or not. Or like greg oden and kevin durant who we're going gonna take some people even thought there was like between zion and jam rant and now it was i on but with cunningham as the consensus number one. The rockets are gonna pick between evan mobely and one of the jails and apparently jalen green is supposed to be the guy and jalen green is a fantastic and hit a strong season with the g. League ignite mobely is one of the most tantalizing big-name prospects in years. Who really fits into the way big work in the nba right now. Which in other words not just standard into the hoop and be a protector and get rebounds so houston could very well. Entice cleveland to send it an asset. So that cleveland ca. Move up to two and get their guy. Isn't that interesting and move back one now. That would only work. If they're going to draft mobely and they knew that they were going to drop globally right so a lot of these are just some smokescreens going on right now but what the raptors at four do they go all in with. Let's win now. Do they start the rebuild or they neither one you know if you think if you draft jalen suggs at three. Does he help them win. A title next year. i don't know. Does he help in the future. Absolutely but if they go on the wind mouth now mode then you keep lowry. Vanfleet siaka m- on a nobody. Gary trent Trent and then maybe you tried the fourth pick for an established vet. Guess what they're not gonna do that. There's no frigging way. If i'm the magic i take jalen. That's at four. And i'm hoping it sucks because as i've said before to me suggs would be my number. One overall pick huge for his position. Strong talented courageous really really like jalen sucks. But then you get to the knicks. The people are talking about. But they're at nineteen and twenty one and the knicks really overachieved. This year they got the number four seed in the east but then things get complicated. Do they resign. Derrick rose and try and run this back again or do they build for the future. I think eric grows would come on the cheap. So i don't think that would be a decision one way or another that would affect anything but right now with nineteen and twenty one. Those guys aren't gonna help you win this year. Theoretically so you could throw those into sweeteners. And you kid trade for guys who could help out with barrett and robinson and some of these other guys quickly but with randall. Do you add in a bona fide star with that trade luke. Nineteen and twenty one. You're just better off taken whoever's there and hope that they're good. Because i don't think you're gonna get a big return. But i mentioned cleveland at three. And as i said that the cavs will have either Jalen if they want and the thing is is that the one thing that they really don't need is backward with garland and sexton. This is why people think that they would do anything to get their hands on mobely by. Let's say another team lower down the lottery has to have green and is gonna trade everything to get up to three. Would the cavs do it. I can tell you right now. If i'm bob myers i offer seven and fourteen for three cleveland's not that stupid to do it. I'd even throw in wiggins. I'd give you wiggins seven and fourteen to get green or suggs absolutely without even thinking about it or asking lake been guber. It's just to it but now the real wild card. I think in all of this is okay. See because she could've come away with two top five picks if everything bounce their way but they got six sixteen and eighteen and sam presi has never been afraid to make a transaction or two. That's right but the asset accumulation has sort of been the name of the game for the thunder. But at some point you have have to do something with these stockpiled picks they can get a really solid player at six but would they trade out of six and move down a few spots. I i don't know they did that. They swung they went down from sixteen to eighteen. They did that with Alexei pocus f ski last year. Everything's on the table for them. And then the one other thing. I the other one other team. I think that could have something to say in. The draft are the lakers because the lakers have zero use for a rookie next year zero us. But they can't trade the pick before the draft because they owe their twenty twenty two first round. Pick to the pelicans but they can certainly draft to play for another team. Deal has been worked out now. Last season the lack of death behind lebron and the uni brow was very painful and the only young players of any value. Probably horton tucker and coups are not going to give him a big fetch. So the number twenty two year old at number twenty two overall pick could become a valuable asset in getting the lakers. Some help now then again. If i said a rookie rookies of no value to them. Unless they're drafting in the top four or five then. Of course that guy would help. But usually you get these guys at twenty two. Most of these names. I've forgotten that. Got like a jacob evans out of cincinnati you know and the warriors drafted him right around there. Maybe a little bit later. And it's like willie make the team if you draft a guy and the question is willie make the team. He better be a second round. Pick like draymond green. Willie make the team a second round pick. Willie make the team you know gilbert arenas second round pick. Willie make the team and like yeah. He's gonna make the team they stink. But yeah at twenty two. If you're the lakers. Whoever you draft at twenty two is going to be a nothing burger. But you do want to help. There's no doubt by the way the spanish captain just hit the post on the first paint. That's bad when the he doesn't even have to say. That's like chris waddle and roberto baggio and stuart pearce some of the famous guys who've missed without even forcing assay before anyway. The the lakers. As i said at twenty two. It's like when the cleveland had lebron and the first overall pick was a draft and stash. It's like you're not getting any help. That is not going help.

And i just wanted this day. Great fan of your work right much. Don't interrupt me cuts oscar. You must be crazy. Use a d. o. g. And if you was my man. I would have been kicked you out of my house by now. This is what had happened. Welcome back to the show high-drama mba who right now. Both spain and switzerland and have to penalties blocked will one was missed by spain but both spanish guys who had their balls blocked they jumped and they jumped up and pretended to go one way and then they hit a week. One live to be thousand people still over think penalties. You just pass the ball you pick a side. You don't change your mind and you make crisp side. Footed pass into the side of the net. That's all you have to do. And now switzerland is just skied one over the bar opening the door for spain and Maybe the swiss cheese lock has run out. Is there such a thing as swiss cheese lock. But that's another thing. And i realize it's very easy for me to sit here on my fat butt and talk about all you go to put it in. The entire world is watching. The entire nation is hanging on a thread. And they're either going to hate you or not remember you. That's basically what it is. They're gonna hate you or not remember you and so i know that is anxiety to the nth level. I know that it's sports pressure. Unlike what most american athletes will never go through I get it but it still amazes me. That guy steps up there who's taken a million penalties in practice especially if you're one of the top five choices they have faith in you because you're really good at in practice and you just hit it as hard as you can and it goes flying over the crossbar. It's stunning. it's absolutely stunning anyway. Spain has just one and they've knocking out. They've knocked out switzerland on penalties and when you missed two penalties and is that guy summer When you missed two penalties you usually don't go through the only way this will be good. News is if Italy beets Belgium later today. Because i want italy to lose. And i don't think swiss switzerland had a chance goes back to my hatred of the outsor- from nine hundred eighty two and now the swiss guys who missed are all crying. It says drama. Sports can only you drama like this. It's true only sports. Can you have drama like this But i'll be rooting for belgium today. And the second game route legal really cure for little. I know so one eight hundred eight seven a play to get in one eight hundred eight seven eight seven five two nine E mails rick at sports byline dot com. This email is from scott and scott said has albert pool hall spin cut yet and all i could think of is. Why does he want pool halls on the giants or the as and i think oh no i think he just hates the dodgers. But i mean it's it's been like over six weeks since our pool halls got cut by the angels and just went up highway five an hour to la and the team. That i mean we knew it would be an american league. Team wasn't gonna be a nationally team can do really is age. No no no. It is the dodgers and the one thing that pulls did when he signed he said. I'll do whatever you want. All play all pinch hit. I'll play first base whatever you want. He said i'm just excited to wear this uniform and glad to be here which is nice and it's not just lip service for a guy who's forty one. He's happy that his career is not over. And i remember when the When the as got rid of steven vote only. The milwaukee brewers offered them time and still to this day with arizona but with pulls and yeah. Look if wearing a dodger uniform. They're one of the great teams of all time timed. I don't like the dodgers but it's has a lot more important than if you put on a jersey that says seattle if you are mariners jersey. You know you've never even won a pennant so as far as Sports pedigree goes. That's just a it's a. It's like wearing a piece of garbage or like a glad bag with Take a trash bag. Cut a hole in it and throw it over your head. That's basically mariners jersey. Rick how dare you. Ken griffey junior and each eero. Ooh king felix king phillix never went to the playoffs but as pool halls just been furniture. Now he's been in thirty games. There's been thirty nine. Since he's appeared so more than three quarters of those games and eighteen. those he started. So what has he done. Scott he's hit two forty seven with six home runs no doubt now. He doesn't get on base. A lot obviously either hits his way on doesn't he strikes out a lot but he hasn't been horrible and the dodgers have maximize his production by platooning him. And that's easier said than done. In the era of nine men bullpens but pull halse is unplayable against right handers. And he mashes lefties with the facing right-handers. He's had forty two plate appearances for la one home run batting one twenty-five but listen to this forty eight games against left handers. Five home runs three fifty six. Of course dave roberts is gonna start him against a lefty three fifty six. That's amazing so i think what's interesting too. Was that with the angels. He hit two fifty against lefties and to twenty-five against righties so they never really platoon him. Obviously he was making too much money. There's no shame in being guy who's just facing on thing now. I mentioned i. Had cal ripken in here i had. Jt stolen here one time and he was a switch hitter until the giant said just hit left handed and i remember i said when the when the giants decided that you should stop switching to heal that. I decided that not the giants. Which wasn't what i heard but i wasn't there and i go. Oh okay y-. I understand proud athlete. When someone's like you stink at that. Don't do that anymore like so when the team said you stink at that. I think that's how he kind of heard it. He goes no no no no no. I decided but the other thing is if you play him at first then you take back. Muncie max months. He's lied a battle lineup. But the thing is. Max muncie was hurt. He's an all star by the way cody bellinger has been hurt and yoshitomo sugo as well. I mean cory seager has been hurt but if the dodgers are going to win the west and by the way they've won eight in a row if they're going to win the national league west they're going to have to beat the padres and blake's now and the giants and alex wood and diamondbacks with bumgarner and killed smith in the rockies with kyle freeland gombar. There's a lot of lefties out there a lot of them. So when are they cutting him. They're not cutting him. So i'm trying to say by the way the all star starters were revealed last night in the national league buster coz buster cozy forgot. His name didn't play last year. It's understandable buster. Posey will start. This is his seventh. All-star game behind the plate freddie freeman the mvp tiddle fifth selection. He'll start at first base of course with atlanta How about adam frazier. First time all star with the pirates starting at one of the worst teams. That's pretty cool. Nolan aeronautique on the hot corner with the cards. Now of course starting his six all star game farrell. Not sewn your first selection starting at short then you get ronald kunia. The braves outfielder starting in center field. This is his second selection and believe it or not. He's the grizzled vet of the senior circuits outfield because nicholas cost the us and jesse winker both from cincinnati. This is both our first. All star game wasn't costing us a flat earthier. He thought something weird. But wow the reds yeah. That's not too shabby in the american league. Salvi peres behind the plate. It's his seven game. royals vlad. junior is his first all star game. He will be at first. How about the first time all star. Marcus semi-in starting for the blue jays at second base and i'm happy for him because Saint mary's high school from berkeley from el cerrito california calbert as well third base rafael devers. This is his first all star game and he'll have a very familiar face shoulder to shoulder because bogart's is the shortstop his third selection from boston. Mike trout Made the his ninth selection. He's in the outfield. But of course he's hurt so he's quote unquote a starter but he's not going to start Aaron judge his third selection will start and how about ko scar hernandez a surprise really deserving from the blue jays. this is his first and the american league also selected the age and we already knew that was going to be a shohei. Otani who is is saying the other day i would like to see shohei ohtani pitch and hit. He's going to be in the home run. Derby obviously like to see him pitch and hit that would be That'd be pretty cool. I think but the all star game is it's always fun even when they tie it's tie Even when dick hauser's jesse barfield his fifth at bad in the ninth inning things that have bugged me over the years You know jay. How getting the loss Keith folk getting the save danny hair and starting you know. I can remember a lot of as All-star moments of there's no doubt peo- someone's talking about the ray fosse fosse was with the cleveland indians when pete rose Bold him over for no good reason.

No more there was one time Rick tittle always goes commando all right. Thank you for that. Fourth of july sunday recognize monday. We'll do a rerun on monday back on to for tuesday. You know the spin rates in baseball. Which is something that we never knew about. We never had the technology for it right but now the enforcement period has begun or about a month into it now so i was looking at some of the data. The spin rate on four seamers last year was two thousand. Three hundred seven rounds per minute in the last month. Two thousand two hundred and twenty nine so about eighty less rounds per minute. Sliders was two thousand four hundred and forty last year now. Two thousand three hundred ninety eight negligible difference. Virtually the same and on curve. Balls the rounds per minute last year. Two thousand five hundred thirty nine and now they're at two thousand four hundred and fifty six rounds per minute so about a what eighty point difference there. I want to know who are the people that i've looked at every pitch since june third when this got enforced who looked at every pitch and then ran it through their computer or whatever it is and is it. Enough when you're throwing a four seam fastball to go from two thousand three hundred and seven to two thousand two hundred and twenty nine. I apparently so i guess but i think a better way to look at it is just strikeouts strikeouts last year. Twenty three point four percent now during this crackdown. Twenty three point. Five percent strikeouts have gone up one tenth of a percent. How about that hit by pitches have gone down from one point. Two three percent to one point. One eight pitchers have more control. If you wanna talk about strikeouts and hit by pitches walks have gone up three tenths of one percent. Is it really worth it now. But i can tell you strikeouts going up even one tenth. It just laughs at this. Crackdown right now. I'm at all avid fourth. We'll see you next time on him sport. We don't have brain damage the show.

Alvarez and mike zimmer vivey on the sports byline broadcasting network the show bryan alvarez here wrestling observer alive mike zimmer aviv also wrestling observer dot com and dell wilkes the patriots the trooper easter the gimmick where he would he would write tickets to his opponents later became the patriots worked for awa global and wf and all japan and world championship wrestling and fifty nine years old and it sucks and he had done an interview a few years ago and he lived a hard life for a while there Talked about Steroid use cocaine use painkiller use and eventually he kicked all of that and he was working car dealership and he did a podcast in was basically talking about how how. Much it sucked. I think you said fifty guys that he had worked with. During his wrestling career had died young and fortunately at the end i mean fifty nine is is way too young to go and the reality is i mean. He lived a hard life. And i don't know if that's the sole reason that he had a massive heart attack it could have been something obviously Hereditary as well there could have been That aspect to it. But we'll talk to lance later on today is gonna be on the show. Five pacific eight eastern live for everybody of our top tier youtube subscribers and he wants compiled a list as well which. I'm sure that he has talked about But he's a tremendous number of people that he worked with. Obviously during his career ended up passing away young so very sad story but he he had a career and he made some money. And that's that's basically the story of del wilson any memories of the patriots mike. Yeah a lot of memories of the patriot really because you know. He was a standout in two territories. One that was dying in the awa when teaming up with dj peterson and won the awa tag titles towards the end there then he went to global wrestling federation. And you know. He stood out there because of his look. And because of the gimmick that he had was a big stand out there on. Espn for a little while when when that show was on there and then ended up in wcw teaming up with marcus sanders. Alexandra bagwell. I think they were. I'm not sure if they were the world tag team champions. I think they were. They were certainly like the. Us tag champs or something like that he was he was definitely a champion there and then ends up in the wwe. Where as you mentioned the few that he had with with. Brad hart and just during that very unique time so also japan to you know he worked over in all japan for a long time and did very well for himself there too so he was a you know. He's one of those guys. He was very solid very good in the ring later on. He was very very open about the problems that he had had a hundred and fifty pill a day habit. I think is what he ended up to ended up in a lot of legal trouble which unfortunately for him really hurt his legacy outside of the ring because he's one of south carolina's greatest football players that the ever produced and he really never got his recognition there because of all the criminal activity that he had all the legal issues that he had that tied in with his bad drug addiction but he was working at a car dealership for a long time. He was active on twitter and social media. Maybe not the people's liking because he was very conservative and very right wing and that he would rankle feathers that way and you would get himself. He followed me and we talk about wrestling and everything was good and then he just realized i was blocked one day and i'm sure that probably something to do with politics and things like that because i know he had the same interactions with some other people but those things happen especially online doesn't take away from his legacy at all which for for people of a certain generation who grew up watching them on gw f three pm on espn for pm. Whatever time and aired on espn and then during that time with the wwf is it you know right before they absolutely exploded with the steve austin era in a. He's going to be a memorable name for a lot of people. You know the Level instead a big shout. Before i forget to us said few here who is Gonna in another Spree of gifting or twitch homeys Subscriptions here so i just want to send a huge. Thank you out to to him. But you mentioned the that pill had it and a normal person will hear that and go. Oh come on you. You can't take a fifty pills a day you'll like you'll die. These normal people have never been around some of these wrestlers from the nineties Yes you can. It's not good for you You do not want to go from zero to one fifty. In fact you don't want to ever. I mean don't get hooked on pills everybody but as these wrestlers would develop tolerance. Del wilkes is far from the only guy and granted. These are wrestlers so there may be a degree of exaggeration but exaggeration. Be something like he actually took one hundred day and claimed one fifty. I mean it's it's astonishing The the drug use of some of these guys during the peak of Many of their issues. But and you know they're sad story that's betcha that's one of the last time. When people saw him from a national perspective was his appearance on. I think it was real sports on. Hbo and that may have been the same one where roddy piper was on. I know raven around that time. A lot of people thought that. I forget what crazy total that he came up with and people said that couldn't be true and it's like unfortunately unfortunately can be true and as i think the you know people started looking at pills in a different way known the especially in the last. You know ten years or so with the with what's happened nationwide and the pull up democ in this country. Yeah the those things unfortunately can happen and unfortunately what they often lead to is early deaths in he had look. This was a wrestler death. Just you know late onset. You know. I wouldn't be surprised. He was very open about all of his issues. The drinking the drugs the steroids all of those things that always made for bad combinations for wrestlers for years. Aws dynamite on wednesday night. Eight hundred and eighty three thousand viewers so the contests between mike. And i win. I think i said eight twenty five. I think you said hi. Seven hundred seventy seven seventy five. Yeah it actually did much better than i expected because the way things work even though it's an it's normal date usually when a show gets preempted for x. Number of weeks. I mean we actually saw with with dynamite on saturday night. They moved to fridays and did poorly. And then after like three hundred you little better and then on. I was the fourth week. They moved to saturday. And i was sure on saturday like it was going to do in six hundreds maybe even some five hundred but at that point people started to figure out the preemption and so it actually did well on saturday and then it's moving back to wednesday and i thought You know it was just on saturday. Are people going to think. There's a show on wednesday. Are they going to remember. Are the out of the habits. Eighty three for the first wednesday back is actually very good. And i would presume that within a few weeks it's probably regularly gonna be in the low nine hundreds but a point three five in the eighteen to forty nine demo and this by the way even though they're they've moved back to their normal wednesday it actually did have strong competition going head to head so i think like i said in a few weeks that are going to regularly in the nines again Which of course is great for pro wrestling and the fans are coming back which is great for pro wrestling so very bullish about pro wrestling starting in really mid-july because midge delays also win. Wwe is officially going to be going back on the road and filling the place with fans. So as i mentioned before. I did that people. Tell me when the pandemic i started and no one knew i mean around here. It was like four weeks to slow the spread like nobody knew anything and there were people that thought for a few weeks servino fans and they go back and they were like oh. I will not watch wrestling until those fans return. I thought it was ridiculous but you can see by the numbers. There are a lot of fans that they would not watch wrestling unless fans were in the building and me did the thunderdome which boosted numbers for a while but then that kind of started to go back a little bit lower as well so i think when real life legitimate fans return to the buildings i believe the things are really going to pick up for pro wrestling.

You were listening to wrestling. Observer live with bryan alvarez and mike semper. vv on the sports byline broadcasting network. Begging the show bryan alvarez here wrestling observer live Mike super v also wrestling observer dot com colt cabana will be joining us in the next segment of the show. We had a lot to talk about with colts. It's been about ten months since he's been on the show damn. He didn't make that. We need to get a lot more people on the show more regularly and culture one of them. Anyway it's coming up here in the next segment first off. cj perry the former. Lana in w we talked chris. Jericho his podcast butter w tenure getting released etc. What she hopes her future holds. If it has a no cut clause said she was completely blindsided. By getting the call from john laura nitis thought it was about an outside. Tv project debit me had just given approval to. She got a call when a lot of her family was at a house she and husband mural are renting so they could train more her heart dropped when she got the call but she was also relieved. Well i could say. I was blind sided when they released hers as well actually was blindsided. I did not think they would release. Lana she said she was texting with mandy rose at the time so she was the first person to know. Followed by italia. Budget cuts were given as a reason and she was glad it was laurynas. Who gave her the news as he's more businesslike than mark khurana would have been with that means she said. Vince mcmahon texted her to thank her for contributions. At work ethic she was complimentary of vince. Triple h road. Dogg and billy gunn for helping develop the lana and annex t and her we work mcmahon scripted. Her promos for her first year. And deputy me that by the way. Lana the lana character. And the promo she cut that. I mean w we were in fact excellent. It was a great part of the act. So that's another example right there that it's not a black and white issue of whether or not you should script promos for people. Some people need it. Some people can take that script and make it work but some people can't she isn't sure what's next. It's only been three weeks. She has a ninety day. No compete doesn't want to be done with wrestling. Felt like she was improving into the ring. Working at of tj and nazis ring on the side to get better if it is wrestling. She wants a no cuts Get black everybody. I'm back a mic. Drop just keep going buddy now takeover. Anyway where was i. I know lama. Was i hear no cut cukor anyway Okay well lana also said before. I was rudely interrupted by the internet here so She said that she was sad to say goodbye to the. Lana character that i get to. This part is important. She said she was sad to say goodbye to the line of character because it was what she wishes that she could be. And i heard that and as like this lana character. She said goodbye to that. Lana character long before she was released from. Wwe because they took miro away from her and obviously he left before she did but they took her accident away from her and so everything she was doing as a character in the last few months. I mean she could have. She can do that anywhere. Just change your name and you can do that same character you can do the underdog you can do the person struggling to to overcome your fears in etc. That has nothing to do with the when people think of the lana character they think of the ravishing russian which has not doing over the last. Several months talked about the survivor series. Match where she backed into a win by not doing anything she thought it would have gotten over bigger headed. Been in front of the fans mcmahon wanted the finish. He and shane thought it was hilarious. If she didn't get in at all because it had never been done before there was supposed to be a table spot. In the match there was pushback from roman because of a plan table spot in his match. That night talked about the thunderdome era. How working in front of the fans was very difficult. She was happy to be out of the performance center. And live in the thunderdome. Because mcmahon couldn't rethink the show and rewrite thing. Seventeen times is she saying. That's what happened next t but not on the main roster surprised by how much he gets buried on twitter and the dirt sheets feel she resonates with a live crowd much more than the internet. Jericho said the live. Audience is reflective of ninety percent of the overall audience. While the real hardcore fans are about ten percents so those highlights. If you wanna listen to old thing it's on talk it's jericho which you can find on I tunes and i guess it's not tunes anymore. Apple music apple podcasts. Whatever it is but Any thoughts on this mike. I guess you know away. From how a lot of people have spoken about mark Maybe johnny wooden throws many insults or visas. Cold baby is releasing people is is mark. Khurana has been accused of The no cut thing is interesting Good luck finding a job. That's going to write in there. That you have a a no cut deal in your i just i find me that place please. If that's the role she's going with the comeback to pro wrestling will never see. Cj perry involved in pro wrestling ever again. Because i mean who do you give. Who would who would you give something like that to brian. rick flair whole cogan. The rock steve. Austin even those people would you give them a full no cut. You can do basically anything you want. Type of contract and we. We have no way to release you. Well the problem with this whole thing. Mike to me is in most jobs. They can fire you at any time. Her comment here is her. She wants a no cut because of the wrestlers living in fear of being released. Okay we're all living in fear being released from our jobs. I mean i'm sorry. Especially you lay forks. That's how else but the thing to me is like if you work for impact or ring of honor or eighty w or new japan or pretty much any other company in the world. I never hear from wrestlers that are living in fear of being cut at any time. That's an issue with people in me because in fact regularly at least a time or two a year they start cutting people and there's like no i if there should be awarded morning cuts coming. You're right but fandango. Was there for sixteen years. Was he not look out. Many people's lungs long careers there and look at the money they make and the security they have when they are in their. Yes your time. There may be very short. It goes at the whims of sometimes a crazy old man. You know signing up whether you did your due diligence or not. That's on you. So i understand that wanting that safety but we all look. How many right to work states. There are look how many especially down south. Everybody is a moment away from being fired without any reason or reason whatsoever so i i get it but like in a field like this in a field like with pro wrestling. I mean seems to be a lot to ask for. But who the hell am i right. I would also like to say one thing about the dirt sheets okay. I am not going to lie. I have made comments about lawn. His wrestling before. Okay not good now. it's not even so much. Here's the thing it's not. Yes how do. I even say this. Think about it com. It's it's not even so much. Lana personally okay. I would bet. In fact i know that lana is better in the ring. It now after having been trained by tj and natty and doing all of this extra work to get better okay. I'm sure she's better my issue with the matches. I saw in our twofold k. One has to do with her to a degree. One is absolutely nothing to do with her. Debbie has this thing and it's a w. e. thing where the women have to do these spots. Okay and my pet peeve. Oh i'm gonna lift my leg and fall into the splits on somebody i'm going to do. I just watch it. And it's gymnastics okay. I don't wanna see gymnastics on my wrestling show. I wanna see wrestling. Tj natty do. They came up in the dungeon. All right. they're not. I would be very surprised if they're in they're all they're working on with. Lana is a bunch of gymnastics. They probably are teaching out to wrestle. I don't see that wrestling when i watch raw. I c three minute matches where there's a bunch of roles and there's a complicated spot and there's a flip and blah blah blah. i wanna see people wrestle. That's my opinion. Okay if you don't like my opinion you're welcome to not like my opinion. Many people don't okay. But i don't see wrestling matches in w e i was a wrestler and i was a gymnast what i see i watched. The screen is like to me. It's not wrestling and it's not good gymnastics. That's my issue okay. I have nothing personally against lana. I have nothing personally against lawa's wrestling ninety percent of the criticism. I have about lana has nothing to do with. Lana it has to do with the booking of the lana character when they did that deal. And i listen to dave and i'm not saying dave's wrong. 'cause he was right they were trying to get her over. But when i look at their idea of getting over oh. Vince thought it would be funny for her to win with never getting in the ring they thought they could beat her every week and she could cry and she could lose and somehow she was going to get over. I didn't believe that for a second. That's not lawn his fault. That's the fault of the guy's laughing thinking it's funny back in a moment observer. Live with colt commander o.

How're you doing today. Ten months we had our little observer. Baby didn't we. We did have our little observer baby and you now coles are having a new baby. I guess wrestling anonymous is your new baby. And you're actually you're actually gifting your old baby to the world. Is that right. yes i've get. I've given birth of given birth wrestling anonymous. I've put up for adoption the art of wrestling. I it's something yes. I started new podcast wrestling anonymous where i take Voice memos essentially. Google voice memos from the fans and they tell me their stories. All different stories has been so fun so far. I've been running for about five weeks and the cool thing is is like i get him. I added them. I post produce them. I put it all together. And essentially i don't know if i'm necessarily the host. The curator of these amazing calls in the calls of the calls from all over. But they're fun for the most part. You know there was a guy who hukou basically took his one year. Old child started stretching him. He started moving him around and stretching them like a little baby and he was like one day. You're going to train with me little kid the and the guy was just like i don't know what's going of taku. He could do whatever stretching him like when you wake up in the morning and you stretch. Stu was doing no i got it. I got it and there's calls There was one call who a wrestling fan watched someone die in the stands That was wild. It called the other week. You know talked about their experiences being there with. Oh hardouin owen. Hart passed away in kansas city. And they're all over the place and it's really fun. It's really fun to do so far. Well you know we've got here cochabamba. I have incites sources in the wrestling business as you may or may not know and i have been given a clip of one of your shows. The would you like to hear it a place of course l. Let's check it out and father. My father now me province arresting. I got interesting in the early eighties and now my kids. I have kids and my son likes watching it with me. And my dad always told me the story of my grandfather when my grandfather will go to a local arena and He tells the story about my grandfather and my grandfather trend. They burned freddie blassie car. And or my dad. I guess there's plus free blast documentary where he talked about that specifically happening in southern california to debut. That's my grandpa that who's like in his mid nineties he'll laugh and then i don't know what you're talking about liking murdered somebody you know and it makes me cold i got. I gotta say this year about that clip and what you're talking about earlier. So is kind of a weird segue earlier. Talked about del wilkes who passed away and he did these interviews talking about how he took one hundred and fifty pain pills and i was talking about. How if a normal person. here's this they just. It's impossible to them. But if you know any wrestlers there may be a slight exaggeration but like these guys. They took hundreds of pain pills a day and your call. You just had right there. That's one of those deals. Where when you hear stories from wrestlers you hear all in my day. We had so much heat guy. Burn my car. And you're like you know maybe these fans were man sliced tires but i mean come on you burn a car then you find out that in fact this actually happened and this guy was An accomplice to car burning here. Yeah i like this call because we always hear from the people. We hear from bobby heenan who got shot or roddy piper. Who got stabbed. But we never hear the people who do the standing or do the shooting or throw the rest of puerto rico So it was interesting to hear from their perspective. That's why i like this call and put it on the show. How did you come up with this idea. Because obviously wrestling fans loved to hear these stories about wrestlers especially behind the scenes stuff that goes on and travel stories and things like that. How did you decide to flip the script and actually hear from some of these fans that are are quite unique and have lived Several lives inside of one. Some of them for years for years fans wanted to be on my arm wrestling podcast and the art of wrestling was just me in the locker room talking to different wrestlers and i feel that people were so they got so into the show that they felt that their stories needed to be heard also and it just something. I wasn't allowed. I just wasn't what my show was at the time. And it's something that i've always wanted to do is give the wrestling fan a platform and then there's so many other inspirations whether it's a podcast called love and radio which had a hotline show Whether it's a beautiful stories from anonymous people from my friend. Chris gathered whether it's college does just like this with with brian. Might you know. Like i've always loved the call and show the idea of it and there's so many other things but it's something that i've wanted to get back into the weekly podcast game and it took me a while yard. Wrestling took a lot out of me. I did it for almost ten years. Almost five hundred episodes and this is something new and fresh and ready to jump back in it. And i'm having such a great time and so are the fans. It's really cool. Well have you calling. Show is a is a great idea. But then there's always there's execution so what you have done is actually wise because you can basically go through and listen to everything. I and i would presume that if someone is a great story. But they like babylon for nineteen minutes. You can shop the thing up right and make it. Yes yes wiseman yes which i. It's the perfect thing. And it's something that i that helps the show flow. It's you know it's only a thirty minute podcast so But if the caller is talked on like they do sometimes it would be an hour and thirty minutes so we've we've drifted down a little bit. How how cathartic have you found this for some of those fans that maybe you did have to do a little bit of editing at the end but you listen to this whole thing and it's like wow. This person really needed to get this off their chest or really wanted to to give this back and really reveal how much wrestling is affected them or impacted them or how much. It helped them at some point in their lives. How much is this has been really helpful. And you've been able to play a kind of a shadow psychologist or sociologist here. Yeah now becoming the dr phil a professional wrestling. That's my new thing it has and there's been some great call so far i haven't played a couple of haven't played. There was a thirty eight year old. Mom who's like i did know wrestling was and now it's something that we bond over and i'm taking my child to the eight to c. W and become the saint. Louis and there was one that i just got. The other day about. A friend wasn't sure about wrestling. Who is a trans A trans woman. And they didn't think they had a place go-to wrestling and then they were introduced to a w where you see. Trans and binary and wrestlers like sunny and nyla and that that's opened the doors and they feel comfortable going to wrestling. They just got wrestling tickets for a w and they're super excited. So these are calls. That i love. I love those passionate calls. I love playing those calls at bowl. The heartstrings but then i also you love playing a call where a guy saw new jack try to piggyback to women and they both fell on this on the sidewalk. The big range you know. It's funny because i'm not gonna lie when you first said that this podcast is going to be all stories from fans. And i'm just going to be the curator. What but i thought about it. And you know david i do. Qna's in association with events a lot and we meet listeners and readers. And when i thought about it it was like this actually does happen to david. I all the time like you'll you'll meet some listener and they'll go. I got to tell you this story and they tell you this it's like that's an awesome story. So the more they think about it and then we played the clip of course. And then you know you had a couple of teases here as well. There's actually sounds because you know fans they they have stories. I mean they absolutely have stories. And i think that that would be. It's actually a great idea for a podcast. thank you. Everybody has a story they really do. And i luckily s you know. We're wrestling for over twenty years. Now with my podcast. The art of wrestling which is now free beckham. the podcast feed. And that being you know now at this point with aew on a national stage you know. I have a bigger platform. And so i'm allowing my platform for people's stories to to jump on my platform. So i know it's it's it's hard to start a podcast and people started and he gets twenty listeners and they just quit so and people have great stories. But so i'm happy to do this for people and to give a platform for the stories. He talked about being. Wrestling's dr phil. We saw little that on wednesday. You are the man and his happy to see of all the people in the dark order. You're the one to really step up. And i put that first bug in hangman pages. Add you know your role on on. Dynamite has been to play a little bit of the background. What's it what's it been like for cochabamba as a member of the dark order. We usually see you more on on dark and elevation but how is it with dark water right now and how's this move back to wednesdays Obviously a lot of fans came back and we're able to see the show live this week. The numbers certainly looked good. How is life in of cole cavanna. I'm really enjoying a w. I'm so excited to get back on the road. That's one of the most important part i think for the sanity of everybody Eight everything's been great jacksonville. And i do want to take. I think chris harrington just tweeted out this list of all the wrestlers that rest got to wrestle in a w during the jacksonville run and shout out to everyone has got a contract and his making money. That tony kahn in. Aws allowed to make a living. There's also huge shout at you know in my heart that true. diy warrior. That i am of all the independent wrestlers that tony kahn gave an opportunity to help financially and professionally. Make a little name for them. So we've seen people now at eight. Dr w darker could now go to the independence and maybe not you know. Charge more than twenty dollars. Maybe make a little money and so. That's something that. I don't know a lot of people are talking about. I hope they are as for me. yeah i i kinda got to be the dad and i think that's my role is i'm in my early forties moving onto my wrestling career. I'm almost the data in the data. The dark order and i'm happy to give hangman page. Some advice i think he needs to go and face kenny omega. Those are just two of the best in a lot of people. A lot of people talk in the locker room just how great hangman is and he is. You know what this isn't even dark order arts. Hangman pages the future wrestling. And hopefully he's the the future champion of. Aew wave the flag for our competent. We got a w. tickets on sale for chicago.

An episode entitled the yellow wallpaper. This was not her first time with this script of the yellow wallpaper. It was originally broadcast on suspense in july. Twenty ninth nineteen forty eight and basically the same script a little tightened up and the ad a little different sound be nine years. Radio changed quite a bit in those nine years and so we will hear that today but agnes moorehead going all the way. Back to her work with orson welles and the mercury theatre and her work later in television. I think most everybody who listens to this program knows that probably the role for which she has. The most fame outside of suspense was her role. Hund- the situation comedy bewitched. As samantha stevens a mother indoor and you know comedy probably not the way she wanted to be remembered. But i have to tell you. She was a wonderful actress and she played these over the top roles with such panache and did them so very well.

John rented it for the summer and we drove up today. Perfect joe morning ballet and the bike sales and people already in swimming and then the shaded lane and the old fashioned flower garden and the knowledge tree and the hub The house standing alone in the summer. I could never tell john that you know the house spoke to me. It was only because he rattled on.

What happened in the past well on this day in one thousand nine eight agai was born. His name was roger. Tory peterson an american ornithologist. Author and conservationist who wrote wildlife field books on birds which has as an illustrated artist. He had great skill. He wrote his first field guide to the birds in nineteen thirty four. A really brought a lot of people into the hobby of watching birds. So great guy. He he was a committed environmentalist including advocating banning ddt which armed and thin birds eggshells few of his signed books. Yeah he also invented the field mark system. That's right that's very helpful. I now one of my employees former employees had showed me a picture of her when she was just a little girl sitting on roger. Tory peterson's is that right her. His her father was good friend. I'll be darned what else in four thirteen. Pc okay longtime ago yes. A lunar eclipse occurred and caused panic. Among the sailors of the athens fleet who were preparing to attack the syracuse ins in the peloponnesian war. They postponed the attack for twenty seven days. Because of the eclipse giving their enemies and advantage the enemies then defeated the athenians entire fleet and army and the syracuse ans heard to say dude is just an eclipse but Yeah eighteen thirty. There was a race of horse versus machine. Tom thumb the first steam locomotive loses its race against a horse later. Beat the horse. However in a game of chicken where neither yielded in eighteen thirty seven schist assure sire sauce. Easy were taylor. Sauce is born in still in chester england by two gentlemen named lee parents and what they were trying to do was they were trying to emulate a recipe of an indian sauce from india However they made it and it just tastes awful tasted office. They put it in a big drum bigger barrel and kept it in the basement. Just forgot about it in the basement for a year and after a year they went down and they wonder what that tastes like. Fairly that less spoilage and stuff but took a taste and they said this is very tasty and that's how they came up with this quercia. Stor sire sir sire solicitor sauce worcestershire in nineteen twenty eight. The branik device is invented. Now this was a foot measuring tool which gave little kids something to play with while they're moms were sheds strain. Yeah and it was. would i present it. Well the one. I saw was metal the image but habitue right. 'cause i've seen wooden ones older than us while yeah before before. They ended medal in nineteen sixty six. Last beatles. concert was performed in san francisco and candlestick park although they did have one more public appearance which was nineteen sixty nine on top of the apple studios true but Birthdays also we talked about roger. Tory peterson also a great burder. Nancy kulp jane hathaway right Pity helmeted burder. From the beverly hillbillies was born today. She actually ran for office. She ran for the house of representatives. And buddy epson her co star. Jed clampett made a lot of ads saying she shouldn't be elected because she's just too darn liberal. Yeah good friend. Apparently charles stewart rolls was born on this day. One of the founders of the rolls royce auto company. He was also the first to fly across the english channel and back nonstop and the first british pilot to die in a flying accident at that time. Other britt pilots were heard to remark lauded and others can be dangerous then in sixteen thirty two. John locke the most important philosopher during the age of reason was born on this day. We use the age of reason right about now You know We we don't have any of that anymore. But but that's what happened. Today in his work was Unlocks work was very influential on the founding fathers. Absolutely he he talked about any was very interested. In pursuing sensation pursuing the senses and how colors affected the senses right. Yeah interesting guy like to join us. Three zero three six nine. Six nineteen seventy. We're gonna pop out to the phones in talk with joe about Toe he's hello joe. Good morning We've had for years and we have a couple of questions for you guys today. This year we noticed that they seemed to have left. And then one has come back. We don't remember this happening in past years so we kind of wonder if they've gone to the mountains and returned. What did you do to scare them away. There are a couple of cats. But we won't talk about that well. They are typically Summer visitors although on the far eastern planes their winter visitors as well and as you said up in the mountains are year round residents but You know they move around a lot. They aren't a bird that spends a lot of time in one place. No and it could be seeking out different food sources. of course. Birds tend to prefer natural foods over what might fall out of the feeder under the ground for a tow he and also You know the family may be raised. And they're spread out a bit just because you haven't noticed it in past years doesn't mean that that natural food availability Is the same as it was last year. That for this year. Okay that that makes a lot of sense and then the other thing we wondered about our bird call app. We we have one of those and we don't know if that would be upsetting to the birds or if if they didn't find another bird that they were looking for or if that was a good thing you don't wanna use them during nesting season because Many species are territorial. I mean if you accidentally play a house. Wren called during the nesting season. You'll get attacked by a house. Ron and and that tracks him away from their nesting areas so during a nesting times. Don't use it other times. Not a big deal. If you have any more questions we have to. I'm sorry we have to. We have to go to a break right now but if you have any more questions hang on and we'll get right back your right after this break. Well welcome back to bird taka.

Now he's got some people signed up but There's still some room if you want to join and and No matter where you are listening to this you can join this but you want to call the denver store and Either stop in email the store or call the denver store. Get your name on the list. So this is like september. Eleven saturday eight. Am belmar park. That's a good place to seal lot interesting birds. So you can check that out. 303-695-7000 nineteen seventy. One is the number if you wanna us today. I had Wonderful morning yesterday. Got up about the time. The sun was coming up and kathy. I sat out on the on the back patio and watched hummingbirds for oh good forty five minutes just coming and going the feeders on the honeysuckle vine and two and three hummingbirds at a time coming in just a wonderful time to be attracting these beautiful little jewels. The sky to the back yard and a lot of people think you know they're gone now but oh no no they'll be here through the into september and they're here in the greatest numbers from this point. Forward mothers and babies are coming in males or coming through and so just a wonderful time to have your hummingbird feeders out there having them full and fresh especially in these warm hot afternoons you wanna have good fresh nectar to to keep them coming back every day to check it out and get a little energy boost for going out there and gathering all the insects that they feed on in the yard. So lotta fun right now to watch those little critters and that is the point that it's not just coming into our feeders but it's also finding nectar in the flowers that we plant and looking for insects and spiders at are in the garden so reduced use of pesticides improves the Habitat to the in your yard to the point where you're more likely to see hummingbirds looking for those insects. You're more likely to have Caterpillars and butterflies outlets so it is part of the habitat creation and development that We help people with at. It's unlimited stores. I've got a little mystery bird here as well. Your mystery bird. This is one that i heard this morning require batteries. Either no it does not. It's actually a real bird a real feathered friend. Who was out there. And i'm gonna see for our listeners can identify this one. I'm going to play this song. And then if you can identify it give us a call and let's see if you know what this guy is. I was listening to this this morning. Okay yeah that is the sound. Let me know if you know what that is. I know what it is three looked it up three zero three six nine six thousand nine hundred. Seventy one is a number and You know this is a time of year that y- birds tend to be quieter there little quieter than they are in the spring. But you can still hear them when you go outside occasionally and they may be doing Calls in order to hold a groups of birds together and and When they're feeding thing yeah and soon actually next month bird of the month is j's that's right so a lot of the blue jays will be coming back to feeders. Blue jays activity is highest highest activities from about september through february. Or so so. Yeah through the winter. We'll see a lot more blue jays our yards and it's always a lot of fun to be able to attract them and watch them key. It is one of the best ways to attract them. There are a lot of good ways. But one of the best that i've found is with peanuts in the shell and of course when you use peanuts in the show you always want to go with raw unsalted peanuts and peanuts that we get our great big fat peanuts. And that's because blue jays come in and they way every peanut in the tray. So i put it in a tray so that i can observe this behavior other other types of feeders. You can put peanuts in the shell in but just like an open tray with a cover over it so that All the winter keeps the snow out. Keeps the the peanuts nice and dry but the blue jays will come in and they'll just start picking up and putting down the peanuts one after another until they find the heaviest one and they'll stuff that one down their throat sac and grab another one in fly off with it and You know they eventually take all the peanuts but they wanna make sure they're getting the ones that are paying them back the most energy for that they expended coming to get the peanuts so So they always go with heaviest ones first and then clean them all the way down to the lightest ones but But having good fresh peanuts out there and the they have me conditioned to come out there. Every morning i've even seen them as i was inside the house looking down from an upstairs window. I've seen him sitting on top of a shepherd's crook where the peanuts were looking in the kitchen window and as my wife kathy walked by the window they started calling immediately. They saw the movement. They started calling her to come out and fill up the peanut feeder which we do every morning and then you well trained that they do and then i will whistle for them when i put the peanuts there and frequently before i can turn around and walk away from the peanut feeder. The jays are. They're selecting their peanuts. So it's a lot of fun a lot of fun to feed those jason. They're just beautiful birds. Lana people think they have a bad reputation because they they scare little birds but all big birds scare little birds and the and they're just brilliant so there are a lot of fun to have around watch. Their behavior very compassionate towards their species. I've seen stories where they've lead old blind bluejays to food until that blue jay was no longer with them but they take care of their own and Just fascinating to watch their behavior if you'd like to join us three. Oh three. six hundred ninety six nineteen seventy-one we're going out to the phones and talk to marv up in broomfield. He wants to give a try at the sound of debt. Already low marv high-near.

And that's that's kind of important is to have it out there mid april so that they can find it when they come through if they were visiting it last year and they came through this year and it wasn't there than they need to set up another place to go to so consistency is really important in building a good hummingbird habitat when they come into colorado their little brains actually expand by about a third and So the their brains actually increase in size and what that does is it. Reactivates all the little bookmarks essentially of places where they found food last year or found energy in the form of our feeders or the flowers the butterfly bush But if they come back again this year and for some reason those feeders earned out there than they need to find that sustenance somewhere else so they set up another bookmark and don't necessarily use when they had before so that could be part of it but there's so many variables that figure into migration You know they could have encountered a forest fire on their way up from central america or mexico or the southern. Us that made them shift their pattern and they went somewhere else this year and in that case they have to find all new food sources in a new area So there's a lot of variables that can enter into it whether itself can enter into it just if the weather is so good that there's a much better source of food further south than they don't have to migrate as far So so many things can enter into it. Well wildfires too. I mean we've had so many wildfires and even if we don't see a wildfire near us just this smoke that's coming from fires to the west of us can deter her migration patterns or where birds are going to nest. That kind of thing. I mean think about these especially hummingbirds their motto metabolic rate is so high they after breathe rapidly and having to bring a smoke and particulates into their lungs. They can't be good for though so they may avoid those areas. Yeah that that's a possibility because they did have allowed to smoke in my yard this summer. Some wildfires sure. And i have another question about the hummers Are there any good flowers. Flowers that i could put out to attract them. You know like august stocky. Because it's a long blooming flower. It'll start early in the season and it blooms right through the summer and into the fall and it comes. In so many different varieties everything from a ground creeper to a forty eight inches tall plant so August stocky also goes by his soup and hummingbird meant. Those are all names of of that type of a plant I like the Texas yucca that is the hesperia low part of flora that one tends to bloom again late into the season puts up beautiful five foot six foot tall spires that have tubular flowers. That hummingbirds like But i think you've got the right idea. Look at your Perennials when they're blooming time is and then plant those that bloom at different times of the season. So that you do have Have that blooming going on all during the season that hummingbirds are here now as far as butterflies. I think the best plant to have for late. Butterfly activity is rabbit. Brush because it blooms later than anything else and butterflies. Just love that plant. So that's a great one for them. You know timing things through the years important for fruits and berries. The the the bush has that you plant to produce fruits and berries for birds to exactly now. We have great resources. In the store of these plants These are colorado natives or residents species. Most of them are zurich. They don't require a lot of water. These are free resources. You can stop in and pick up our brochures that tell you how to create a beautiful Bird and butterfly garden and feel free to stop in and pick those up We're we're happy to let you have those to build the best habitat. You can hap- great to now. Though i have one more question sure just maybe an hour ago. A flak of birds came to my yard Their bodies for real dare. I couldn't they weren't not quite Deep black color but they were derek butts their head and neck were dark blue. Really beautiful there. You know what they are here. That's a great description that is the common graphical and you'll also notice that they have yellow eyes so and the color of the head is an iridescence so it can kind of change color to it might be purple in some light. It'd be blue in another light. Yeah yeah but that is the common crackle and they will be heading south about What do we say october. Twenty third at nine fifteen in the morning. Nine fifteen is their flight out. Yes all right. Well thank you so much for answering my questions that i will apt that one eight years stars to pick up some information terrific. Thanks barbara and if you'd like to join us 303-695-7000 nineteen seventy one. I i hadn't seen the the la bush. Tizi come in my yard frequently. Until just this past week boy. They came in and they were all over the suet and the sewage cylinder and You know it's always like a gang of a motorcycle gang rotting motorcycle gang. Come in they work over the feeders and then they take off again so it was nice to see them again. Absolutely nikki has Posted on facebook live to things getting around thirteen. Plus magpies at the same time had five flickers this morning. Also seeing some bald magpies and blue jays they look even more like dinosaurs bush tits and red breasted nut to hatches or coming back around to well nicki got boy. You must be treating them right. I think the baldwin's are always the most attractive bottom. You know. they've got higher testosterone. Just better lovers really wear hats. Took live looks goofy if you don't if you have a bald head and you have headphones on. We do get a lot of comments about bald birds at this time of year. And that is due to the fact that they can't preen on the top of their heads and this is where feather mites tend to hang out because they know that's a safe space for him and what they do is the feather mites. Get on the feathers. And they'll chew screw the base of the feather but worry not the feathers fall off with the feather mites and they do grow those feathers back so they only get to be good looking like that for a little while and then they get re feathered right so they go back from dinosaurs to birds. That's right just like evolution. Good observation mickey. If you'd like to join us three zero three six nine. Six nineteen seventy one is the number to call. You're listening to the backyard. Bird feeding specialist. David scott meno right here on seven hundred and nine ninety k. r. s. We'll be back right after this. Well welcome back to bird talk. You are listening to scott and david mena with bird talk presented by the wild birds unlimited stores in our vada and in denver. And if you'd like to join us three zero three six nine six nine hundred seventy one and elizabeth in littleton is joining us Hello elizabeth high. We were wondering what type of feeder is. Best for a flicker When we have liquor. Who likes are finch feeders and tends to kind of hang upside down and tends to make massin. I don't look uncomfortable. I'm just wondering if we could get something that he'd liked better way they can be the acrobats flickers nut tach his other woodpeckers they can be the acrobats and hanging all sorts of weird shapes and places. You wouldn't think that they could feed. But you know flickers. Like other woodpeckers and chickens and not hatches. They are insect eaters. So they like high fat foods now Sunflower seeds are high in fat but also we can offer foods like suet ensuite. Cylinders and often if we offer that the They'll prefer that now. That doesn't stop them from going back to your their feeder. You mentioned how they knocked stuff off. They are kind of sloppy eaters and one of the things that he is a he hangs on it and he's really too big for it so he makes its way and we do offer. I mean we have suet and and he does eat eat that as well but then he goes back to the i mean we have the the no mess blend writing from the wild bird store and he likes that too so i guess you're just equal opportunity. Well yeah yeah now. I had been using One of the eliminators squirrel proof bird. Feeders and i had adjusted it so that big birds couldn't easily feed on because they have their own feeders. And the flickered still go to it and it was kind of funny because there's just a tiny gap. Every time he stuck his begin the perch would go up again. 'cause force it open to be able to feed but he does tend to spend a lot more. That's a little more work so he tends to spend a lot more time on the suet feeders that way. Yeah they're a type of of feeder for bigger birds. You know trae type feeders. Covered trays are just terrific. For big birds and that can kind of distract them from the feeders that are harder for them to feed on. I always keep a. I keep a covered trae on my fence. A little bit away from the other feeders and my larger birds tend to go there. And so that kinda saves a spot for my smaller birds in another area and as you differentiate your feeders just the way. You're talking about doing picking different feeders. Different species you get more species at once because you don't have everybody fighting for that one little area there so yeah just a great way to increase the species you get to see at one time. That sounds great. Thank you thank you very much. And if you'd like to join us we're at three zero three nine six nineteen seventy-one. We're gonna go out and talk to nick in westminster today. Hi nick you guys do today. We're doing good. I have a question about the baby hummingbirds. yeah. I think. I think they're coming to my feeder but i don't if there's no real way to identify whether they're young or old well there. Is there going to be the same size as adults. So they're not any smaller They look like females. Essentially adolescence and females look very similar. You may be able to see some starting of the gorgeous feathers just below the beak on the throat in males and you don't see that in females because they don't have gorge feathers but that's the red or the or the purple feathers that come in under the chin that they use for breeding displays and things like that It's really kinda difficult to tell the difference between the females. If you've got a good set of binoculars and a field guide in front of you and you can pick out the right field markings that can help you. Certainly identify the difference between females and between the males the adolescent males. And and you can even tell the difference in the adolescent males when she gets your. I trained to see those field markings riot. Also if you're seeing hummingbirds at your feeder in some look smaller than the others then you may have a different species of hummingbird there. The colli hummingbird is is noticeably smaller than the more common broad tails. That'll come around to our feeders. Y- i think i i understand that. I think what. I'm seeing is worth siblings. Very likely i had life had missing hummingbirds in the neighborhood. I don't know exactly where the wrath i've had him in the neighborhood. Sure because they see. I see the c. meal coming up to the cedar and out and out on the edge of the of the yard or another perch you've seen the youngsters and then the one the female with the youngsters would come very neat now that the siblings county about the youngsters. They won't go to the same feeder if they go to the theater sibling war. You're touching me. Stop touching me. That's on your side like human siblings. Yeah i've seen him doing some really interesting territorial battles in in or familial battles in my backyard lately to hummingbirds chasing each other around those are probably siblings two. Yeah well that's a good observation. Nick there was fun. I just enjoy watching them. Isn't it great.

So we've made our last trip to hollywood studios which is real asked galaxy's edge before you move and yeah well what's been your favorite part of like just galaxy's edge and that type of thing is it rise a resistance which is unlike ten times. We really are fortunate. We all absolutely people never get to do it. I know it's been pretty cool but anyway. What's your favorite part about galaxy's edge just kind of the whole immersion aspect of. They really did a great job of making you feel like you stepped into star wars in the cast members making adding to the experience and the savvy shop and the droid builders. I mean all that was combined to make such a really cool Felt like authentic dinars. Experience and i think it was even harder yesterday because everybody at rise the resistance was like all in all the actors and stuff they were doing a really what about you. What's been your favorite part about galaxy's edge. I mean we didn't get the full experiences some other people you know the characters walking around and all that stuff but it was. It was a lot of fun. I think my favorite part was rise. I really enjoyed that ride. I hope that they have broken down. Yeah when it's not broken down. They start doing more of those type i think. That's where their strong point is sung excited to see in the future. What's going to happen. So yeah. I think they are doing that with like guardians of the galaxy. I think that's to feel like that. A little bit more. Not to the extent maybe space mountain. But i have a story. Yeah yeah it'll be good so yeah awesome and tomorrow we're gonna we're gonna take our sabbath right. We're not going to be working. We're not gonna do podcast and we're going to be packing tomorrow. We're gonna take the day off of because otherwise mom would be dead because she works a tail off again. You know thank god for sabbath right. but we're gonna. We're gonna go to the waterpark and hang out a little bit and then head over to the movies yeah we do we decided. Which one did we thought we did. Yeah yeah nobody louis. Everybody's getting great ratings but it's like rated r. for things that i think they can handle not not like you know and he doesn't care about me. Well you're twenty years old. And i'm almost twenty that's freaky. I don't like that. I know he was a little weird. And you have grown up on this show. Yeah no i was living. I call being i i called. Gb needs phone. The other day and dave switched over to his voice mail and was his prepubescent high goes like twelve voice and it was like. I look mommy. It was on speaker. And i look at mom. And she's like oh pictures of. I said celebration house packed nathan like real short and stuff it's been awesome embraces and you're almost twenty pretty cool all right sam. What do we go for well. It was the episode before the finale. Semi finale does not a word. You made it up okay. Fine it's the semi finale of talking to winter soldier and there's definitely plenty to unpack. Sam finally got the shield back from john we saw is. am bradley. And he's definitely not a captain. America fan in john's just completely lost it at this point. We'll discuss that all god all the depletion right then. Keep your secrets. Merger begging mike thirty trailers hadn't seen what about was like look like he was. He was like trying to scare him. Or what was that all about. This is more like Mostly closure for bucky own use planes literally marking off a name. That's what baron zemo talks about. Yeah that was an intensive that was All right so. This is a pretty intense upset. We finally got a lot of story real story development for sam it's been a few episodes into we've had anything really developed with his character so they really made up for that in this episode. He finally got the shield back from walker but during that fight john clip sam's wings literally operable after san. Sam learns at the government's taking over that hunt for carly he decides to pay bradley visit. Now that has the shield. He's got to do something with it is as the think you wanted to give it to him. Or what was that all about. I never got that. He just needed like almost like direction. Like a mentor. Almost he's the closest thing to captain. America that you plus you know. He was african american to. I'm sure certain that had an impact on them and we'll talk about it. Yeah absolutely so he decides to pay of visit and he learns a lot more about what happened to brand and we've got a little bit of it like what second or third episode. We got some real deep to the wall. Yeah that was crazy. We learned that hammond. Two hundred ninety nine other african americans in the military were injected with. What they were told was just a tetanus shot but was really different variations of the super soldiers. Who feel weird go there. Can we just go there right now. Or is it okay to say that. They're vaccinating millions of people right now and i'm just kind of like came up that vaccine faster than the other vaccine in history and they're all right. Sorry he was told they were all told a tetanus shot but they're experimenting to see if they could come up with that serum and then they sent them all out into the warmer like go fight it worked. I'm eventually a group of them. were caught. input in a pow camp. I guess isaiah was in some military facility and you decide to break out. Save those people. He eventually got them and saved. All of them brought them back but like kind of like. What cap did i miss. You guys pick up on that right away. Not right away just now. Actually i mean it did kind of mir that but it didn't really matter because all of those people eventually died anyway because the serum was faulty and he was imprisoned for thirty years and during those thirty years. He was experimented on the whole time just to see why that serum worked for him nobody else yeah is. It was really emotional. Heavy for you guys. We learned that during the entire he had a girl back home essentially and she was told he was dead and she had written him letters for years and he wasn't allowed to get any of them because he was dead and eventually nurse had pity on him helped him escape and found that boxful of letters and gave it to them and then we learned that here the throughout this conversation we get the idea. That bradley had does not like captain america. He's like this that shield exactly what he said or or how he said it but you know he was like. There's no way anybody like any anybody's gonna take a black captain america seriously as and he's like an any self respecting man would never take up that shield seven some really heavy stuff in relation to that you know. He's like captain america's a white boy with blue eyes and blonde hair and stuff so it was a really intense discussion. What what were your thoughts on that whole thing and the overarching like concept's do we. It was a very well done. Seen i feel like it shows that Sam is nothing like isaiah. Isaiah was affected by the serum made more cynical. That's a good point. I never thought that they brought out his inner self. Yeah inner cynic and it shows that sam is a good man a really good man. Well you know isaiah definitely had the right to be frustrated. He had the right to be angry or every emotion. That's one of the things i wanted to bring up. Is you know when you watch these types of shows. It's important to remember that everybody is coming to these. a well. written character has their own point of view. And you should be able to see where they're coming from. It's that idea of looking at that and saying okay. If i was in isaiah's shoes how would i feel He and they nailed would feel. It was so messed up now. So i'm definitely had had a right to feel that way and then going into you know back into the show and itself. Can we assume that there are few other of those two hundred and ninety nine. That are still alive all died. He said it multiple times. You said it both both scenes. We've seen i think we can safely assume and in the comics only only saved a small group of them doesn't matter the rest of them die. How does he know. I think it's safe to assume that that's the case. And the comics mentioned that way although in the comics his son inherits some of the abilities and becomes a young avenger. Right kind of yeah. He becomes like another. Captain america So they might go somewhere with that. I think of those three hundred. He's the only one So after that discussion sam decides to go back home and sister fix the boat and layla while the government you know handles the carly situation and until he gets a lead on where she is while he's there he you know he finds out that she can't sell the boat so he calls in favors from everybody in the community that their parents have helped. Yeah that was awesome and they all come together. They're like. Oh the wilson family absolutely anything for you guys you know and so the whole community comes together and brings in these parts and stuff and helps fix the boat and eventually bucky shows up and he starts helping and he actually drops off this suitcase from conned. Big that we get all safely. Assume is a new flight sued for sam. It's not they didn't even show. We are resuming. Those are vibe iranian wings. Well if it's from a and he got expense that's cool right. That's cool but you know he. He helps build the hopes fixed. The boat and flirt with his sister and stuff in classic bucky facts. He flirts with sam sister. That kind of feel weird if samba's -verting with his own sister. Although you know. I mean you know no judgment as they're in the south. Oh jeez reunion. Viewer in the south. We're sorry we're moving to alabama and we're find these boys were born in south alabama like twenty minutes from the the gulf. You can't get any south or bat anyway. When he was flirting when bucky was flirting with her. It did feel like i venture. It was cool to see that like like bucky was back almost in a sense like he was playing his character his back to being buck before the winter soldier but later on salmon bucky are in the backyard. Basically having a conversation while playing a game catch with the frisbee or with the shield like a frisbee which was cool. They had like these like with a workout pads on the trees. Mattresses and pillows yes But you know there there haven't during this conversation sam's talking to bucky mbeki's like he's almost like have you really like how are you doing. Are you still having those nightmares and stuff. He's like oh all the time and it's what helps me know that i'm still here but it also tells me that still part of the winter soldier in me too and sam's like you've got you've got to get over yourself. He's like you're you're you're saying sorry but you're only saying sorry to like make yourself better about things he's like you need to do favors for these people and stuff. I think he's going back and tell you that that old guy they don't build this son from the second episode and is the first episode. I it was the first episode that we saw that. Yeah that's without a doubt what's going on. It's been hard as i think is to deal with that one. You know so he he does. What sam's job was and how a grieving soldier essentially and he eventually they part ways and you talked about the fact that that's exactly what how steve greaves. The blip The snap that he. Yeah you mentioned does exactly what sam did Does that starts leading one of those support. Groups They they part ways. We're not co workers. You know they did that whole phone conversation. But they eventually part ways and we presume. Bucky goes to start making things better. Sam then talks to sarah and decides he has to take up the shield Otherwise all that pain work in suffering. That people like went through me. Nothing would be for nothing. He has to do this. So you know q. The like y'all said the rocky style training montage. It was still. It was such a cliche. Don't do this but it works. It was cool you know. He's throwing around the shield and stuff and cut his head off like twice but eventually it ends and he's confident with children he he's accepted it. Now it's part of him and then he he finds out that carly in the flag smasher planning some major attack on new york with that. Grc summit where they're basically like this is the culmination of what he's doing so then he gets ready to take them on. He opens up that briefcase. They still didn't show us what was in it last flights here hope it's the red white and blue. Why would they do that though. Like lucky. they're lucky ass. They're very good. Yeah i could see bucky telling him to do it. I could also see them for recognizing that. Sam needs that nudge image. Yeah the he needs some but he needs them to say. I think as your terrorist bookies choice up yeah and bucky i mean. He even mentioned the shield and like how. It's like a part of the only family. He's got at this point almost so he has a connection to those colors for sure. Do dad do you think that same is going to take up the mantle of captain america or is he gonna not necessarily take on a different name but this name of captain america at this point has definitely been marred. It's got some negative connotations to it at this point through what john's don and what is associated with it for like isaiah things do you think he's going to alter what he does with captain america or is he going to fully take on that mantle and try and cleanse it in a way. It's a really good question because you know we saw in the previous episode. That sam understands carly's feelings regarding these borders and the the the global repatriation council and that stuff. That's going on and sam understands where that's coming from so you combine that with isaiah's regarding his thoughts on on america which is really a challenging conversation that i wish i it's not fit fit for this podcast but the reality is that moment. Yeah this is. This is a bit of a dad. Moment it. We we spend so much time. Yelling and posting two hundred and eighty character tweets and making ramp videos and and speaking into the echo box Echo chamber of social media where ninety percent of the people that we are reading our posts agree with us that we fail to understand other people's perspectives. There is no doubt that america's treatment of black people and and people of color people of other races. What's going on with asian. Hate right now and all of this stuff that's happening is something that tarnishes this country's history absent and we have to have conversations about that and they have to be open to have those conversations with it and that's the beauty of shows like this this show because it allowed us for ten minutes to see perspective that is uncomfortable but allows us to try to put ourselves in that position and that's that's the beauty of art. That's the beauty of story. It allows us to do that. Because because in a in a real world setting we would we would the tension and the and everything would be to too great to have those conversations we need to have those conversations but this allows us to to start that. And then you throw in the john walker literally tainting of that shield With it i. I don't know how they go. Forward with sam taking up the shield taking up the red white and blue captain. America's falcon suit. You know and not call him captain america. I just don't know how they do it in the first one. How they do it's i. I'm really curious how this is going to out. Agri nate based on. Why sam is taking up the shield. Because he has this point. Do you think he's going to be the cat. I mean you kind of touched on this. Do you think he's going to be the captain. America that the world needs at this point. Yes i think that they were showing the whole series of white. The dark side of captain america could be Steve made the right decision. In the first place of making sam captain america and so i think he is taken it up and i do think that he's going to be the captain america that this will need specifically because he understands first of all why carly is doing what she is doing so we already understands the bad guys perspective and so. I really do think that he's going to be the the captain america everyone needs so and Speaking of a cap. America that world definitely doesn't need John walker Yeah this episode. It did a lot with his character. Setting him up to be really just a straight bagai. I mean it starts off with a really intense fight with salmon bucky. Where looks like he's gonna kill both of them at a couple of days. It was really cool. It was cool. He even like shouts. I am captain america. Cementing the fact that he is not captain. America eventually salmon bucky overpower him and take the shield. Don't know you'll notice i did. I thought i felt very infinity. War and like online. Yeah it felt a lot like that. Oh man there. Successful this time star. Lord didn't mess it up right and giving nathan the dirty look because didn't want to bring in the star lord anyway so you know they take the shield and in the process. And let's just say this right now. Star lord's reaction in that moment was exactly how star lord sheds right reason so then eventually they beat the crap out of john and he's he's brought front of like military court does call and he's dishonorably discharged and like he has no rank or severance like the worst punishment you can get in in the military aside from being thrown in prison. Essentially he. they're like yo you got off lucky with this so during it. He's like interrupting me. Explain where i'm coming from. He's like you know. I am captain. America gets more aggressive. Yeah he was getting. They were tongue in what was happening. And he just walks out in the middle the the hearing and so he's sitting outside with his wife and all of a sudden it's random chick comes up some mysterious woman With a extremely complicated name that she did not help make simpler when she was explaining it some contessa. Valentina gra de la fontaine. And that is a mouthful contessa. Valentina are they're gonna level anti yes anyway. Me like the powerbroker i don. I didn't well the best zero. She tells him that. Taking the sierra one of the best decisions he's ever made and that it's made him very valuable to some people we don't know who but she says that when she calls him gives him a blank business card says that when she calls him. He's he'd better pick up essentially nathan. You alluded to this. I did a little research. This in the comics this character started off as a major player in shield in even had romantic relationship with nick fury at one point in the comics and steve Which is weird. I mean this is comics. They're not gonna go with that. But i thought it'd be interesting mention but eventually became a seat secretly became a member of hydra and took on the role of madame hydra. Which is was it. The same as the contessa. Valentina allegra match the name of the chick that becomes matt madame. Hydra lady hydro whatever. Madam yes madam which i guess. They are following the mcu captain america game. Because she was in it she was. That's right yeah So she could be madame idir or they could just decide to bring this character in because name. Oh they don't do that i know. Do you guys think that she is madam hydra in. Who do you think she could be working for at this point. I do think she's madame hydra specifically because if they don't make your mind they'll be making a lot of fans angry because otherwise she's not a super important and with actually going to be introduced in black widow which she is more of a black widow villain than captain. America believe it so But they decided to move it into falconer soldier. I don't know why they felt like it would fit better by think she is madame. Hydro already I thought hydro was gone. Hydrogen never going to be gone. Okay always little. They've got off so many heads at this point and had like thirty two or something like that. Thirty thirty two on only third okay. Okay but i'm excited. See were kirk. Goes i just. I found it so funny. I'm like i guess. The mcu cats in america we game isn't cannon the do who do you think she's working for this point hydra of course or ourself so you think she's a problem on my. I'm not finding any connection and finding her character existence in this. But i'm not finding her as a connection. Madame hydra anywhere in the best. Yeah i'm looking on like marvel database on our fandom right on the bottom definitely on their cheese. One hundred percent becomes madame. Hydra her character in the comic there. That could be somewhere. They go with that. But later on walker pays lamar's family visit and tells them you know gives news at lamar's dead and lies his lies through his team. He killed the the man that killed lamar straight up lies about it. And they're all like when lamar you know happy to know that you just. Oh my gosh you're just like geez and that was that was just a really intense ugly scene. Yeah and then later on. I not really much else happens with this character but later on in the post credits scene. We see him making his own. Shield air quotes here although it doesn't look to be made out of vibration It's just might be more for show than anything. Let it go dude me. Do you think that this was the episode that finally made john. Us agent you know. He has the temper and the lack of governmental control. Now yeah. I definitely think that they made him the us agent. I think he's going to be a very big part of what's coming in the next episode. I think we're gonna have like a a three party big battle it would make sense. We have the flags measures. We have bucky. And sam and we have drawn walker all fighting each other Which would be really cool and totally an nco fashion by. I think it's exciting to see whereas characters from here if he is for some reason killed next episode. I wouldn't be surprised. But if he is the main route running. I want him to come back. I want to come back. And i think he will but i'm not sure how he would come back but i guess we'll see win batroc. They could totally do his character but that whole scene. We haven't talked about that much. But that so batroc is brought to carly by sharon carter but so is sharing working for the flags measures or like helping them thinks she's like crackers or something in the gear. I don't know that you're in confirmed as the power broker. Now or what it. Yeah i was confused in that. Because i got the feeling that the the contessa valentina lady allegra d say like you're watching. I should watch ready to now. I felt like she was. I thought that i didn't understand who that character So this this lady starts coming in and it kind of felt like she's the powerbroker. Yeah yes and so. I assumed that sharing had something else to do with this. So then i'm like the the powerbrokers bringing john. I was confused. Yeah so it's definitely a confusing thing there but that it seems like at the beginning of this very very very beginning of this episode. John had some like inner turmoil about what he had done. He goes now warehouse. He's freaking out. And all these things are going through had and then he just brushes it off like it's no big deal and says time to go to work like what lamar said totally disregarded the fact that he just murdered a man in cold blood yeah liles reveals who he really was when he before the serum before captain america when he's this war hero. The reason that he was this war hero was not because he had good motives and he was in he. You know Altruistic he was he was An ego driven. Give me my awards. mission at all costs Type person and know he takes the serum and that was that was the thing that triggered it so you think he's he's based on the bad guy he's iran esso's the us asia character in the comics. Is he what you guys described earlier about. No governmental control and just that kind of thing is that is that us agent. He's basically like a free agent. Yeah he's like declared dead eventually starts working for the powerbroker okay Well that makes me think that we may be getting a shift in the marvel cinematic universe. That's not in the comics. And that is. I still wonder if this contessa is playing the powerbroker that things that she said to john about the connections and and the things that she's done feels like she was the powerbroker and i wouldn't be surprised if we find out that sushi is. Yeah all right so a lot has happened throughout this series. And it's all coming to a close next week just sad because there's a good show it was. I'm more sad about the end of this one than i am. One division. yeah just being honest. But i've also been following closer. Yeah that's true Looks like it's going to be one heck of an episode though with everything that they're they're lining up so be sure to tune in to see what happens to sam. Lucky this coming friday on disney plus. But that said dad. What have you got for us this week. Like i said there isn't much star. wars talk about. It's kind of sad anyway. That lobby changing very soon. When the bad batch premieres made a fourth but for this week. Let's let's look at the other major lucasfilm franchise that's beginning to for some reason. Look a whole lot like a star wars movie. That's coming up after these ads specifically chosen for you because has a partnership agreement. That says that you won't get to watch the finale of the falcon and the winter soldier unless you pay attention to it so this tattooing sons. Hello catherine sons. Somebody goes before we get back to this show. I'm going to just take a moment to say. Thank you very much for listening to this. It's fun talking about all of this.

It's always awesome reading your comments and reviews again it gives us oxygen and make it makes us feel better about ourselves right. Your comments are oxygen. Exactly if you haven't had a chance to do it yet. We'd love to invite you to us a review on apple podcasts or whichever podcasts app you use except for spotify nothing does. I'm trying to figure it out okay. Cool helps us learn more about you and what you love about the show and what we should continue doing and bring the entertaining in family friendly content. You are looking for thank you so much again. Let's get back to. The religions and ancient weapons are no match for good. blaster case. Built on hope is me. I am with the force. If you live long enough you see. The same is in different. People think. it's all parts of well when island sitting soak invader Dogs yes and was on bed rest because she towel. I watched it that. That point and i was. It's and if i never saw it. Yeah you know some people absolutely lay love it. Hey think it's a great film. Only random sorry. But did y'all see that harrison ford like bite a thousand gals like recently mouth know. That's how he's in shape. I thought was old eighty but this just a thousand miles anyway sorry. Let's talk about this so again. No not much star news this week and i tried to come up with something like really exciting star wars related and i just couldn't so but i did start noticing a bunch of star wars names associated with a lucas film franchise film coming out a film next year close enough so i figure again about as close starrewards. You're going to get right now. So indiana jones five still yet. Unnamed is in production. It's actually do you guys know how long this bill has been in production since two thousand sixteen is when they announced they re doing this. The challenge has been had a director. Change we'll talk about that. A little bit than just production issues with cova has slowed down over and over again. But what's really interesting is that you got all this. These major cask cast announcements that. Have taken place and a coming alongside. Harrison ford obviously hot solo. Han solo From star wars but also the amazing indiana jones himself. The titular character. You use that work a few word a few weeks ago so i wanted to use it today. Because i was impressed. By the titular character in indiana jones movies He's in this but then they announced a couple of others was just this week house them this week. So we have mads mikkelsen who played gaylon earth zone not to be confused with lars mikkelsen. Who played thron voice. Thrown in lars mikkelsen brother voiced thrown in star wars rebels. Gaylon are so our me. Mad mickelson played gave broke one With that we don't know what character he's going to be playing. We don't know bag by good list. Sheath the sheaf in casino royale he could definitely be a good indiana jones. Bagai could i'm and as much as we love. Phoebe waller bridges out three three seven in soloist star wars story. We've never really seen phoebe waller bridge now major films now like this She's been in this tv series on amazon. I think it's called fleabag. That's really popular. Yeah she's been lots of movies. Don't be wrong with it but this is probably a pretty big big moment for her because you have seen all that kind of stuff won't be wearing much of green screen outfits and a head on in a room by on her head in a room exactly. Do you think that Phoebe waller bridge is playing some type of a love interest. Harrison ford psychic. Who's gonna give him a lot of crap. The whole time i hope. So because you're her dialogue has been real. It was really did i wouldn't wanna see her as a sidekick necessarily sh- hands always got somebody with them like a female like a bond girl kind of but not a love interest. It's not just a young hot headed like annoying person. Who's just gonna make fun of of india the whole time. So then you've got the rest of it and it's interesting even even some of the The production team for this star feels like star wars. You got of course. Originally it was gonna be steven spielberg. Who directed all of these. All the other the other films he was going to direct it down he still going to be executive producing it with george lucas. And kathleen kennedy and frank. Marshall do you guys do know. Frank marshall is married to kathleen kennedy. Yes did not vote now. This and they were kevin kennedy. Frank marshall burr associate directors or assistant directors editors producers. And stuff on the all of the that's out kathleen kennedy. Got her start steven. Spielberg right raiders. Los area can you park right. I think All these producers but then they replace even spielberg because he bonded a step into the producer role specifically and with james mangold. Now james mangold was originally chosen to direct the boba fett film. That never happened. Sorry okay getting a series. Some point but i mean some of the other films that he's done the two probably most familiar to you guys are logan which is pretty dark and didn't really like the way that they handled professor acts in that whole story was kinda but we really like for ferrari fantastic movie with it. So we'll see on that. And of course you've got john williams composing user tire. He's coming out to do the last not doing anymore. Star wars right at so that feels very star wars he. Yeah john williams man. You've asked film composer ever change my mind. He's brilliant so that's gonna be fun and then there was some fun casting rumors one of them. You know seems like it's more likely than the other Got john davis. Dad has got a he's got to be one of the hardest working guys in hollywood so i was looking for. I was trying to find out if he was in the habit as well. As in the lord of the rings trilogy. i couldn't remember. He played a hobby is and so. I was scrolling through his. Imdb film and work his work resume. And it's like thirteen feet long when you're scrolling movies tv sam voiceover video games. He is in ever remember. Plays mordechai in the one night with the king asked story. Yeah he plays that. He's he's he's in all sorts. He's in everything with a. He said that he would like to come back. Yeah he played that he played that same character. I can't remember his name. But his indies in both raiders of the lost ark and the last crusade. Of course great movie wasn't in temple of doom and he wasn't in the kingdom of the crystal city of doom prequel or som- it is. It is weird. Um how do that. But anyway And then then this will makes me laugh because and there's a part of me that goes not going to happen and then there's something that could happen that would be that would be the ultimate mark hamill moment and detroit. This if he knows that they're gonna do so. Mark hamill is maybe as just as jokes talked about how he might have roller. You'd like to have a role in this indiana jones movie and at first you're like that's just mark. Vi and mark but mark is a master troll right and he likes to do fun things like this where he sees it something. The national doesn't make any sense. And then you're like way could. So here's the here's the situation. If indiana jones based on the year that indiana jones was born in the stories we know what year he was born. If indiana jones is playing if the character of indiana jones in this film will be the same age as harrison. Ford is for real right now. Then this film would be set in one thousand nine hundred. Seventy seven a star wars came out in nineteen seventy seven day. Wait till you is this old to be able to make it no. I wouldn't it be cool if any goes to goes to the theater. Like that's how they up and and you see you see star wars on the screen and they probably don't show how solo at all nez because that would be really really weird. Take you out of the moment. And how spider man. Peter parker is seen all stars movies but doesn't connect exactly. Then you're on there and it's like there's there's luke standing on tattoo with the binary sunset afterwards and something happens and he asked to leave. I hope he finishes the movie he walks ever seen thomas and maybe he's watching it with whatever it was amazing. I want to be in that someday. And that's just got an update. On that i just fund me to see all of the stars related people involved in that it is. Are you guys excited that they're going to be doing this. How do you think it's time to sort of. Can we put this to bed. I mean after crystal skull like better either nail this or just put a jurassic park. They they can nail it if they don't introduce aliens what we yeah when the weird supernatural stuff nagging archaeology not extraterrestrial use social. Well there's always been a supernatural element to all of the star. Wars are all indiana jones the ark of the covenant by more than anything. I think that's what they were trying to do. They just they just sort of. they didn't they. They overplayed their hand. Here's what harrison ford is said though because they keep he they're asking him about the delays in this he's like we're not going to start filming until we get it right. I mean that's literally what he said. So if we need to keep rewriting things you need to keep changing things we will. We're not going to start filming this film until we get it. Right is what he said. So i think that he was frustrated with the reaction to crystal skull as much as i am. A lot of people were and this he knows this is it. He's never gonna play on solo again right you know. He's and i think that he did. I think that the force awakens was a solid haunt solo. Us lies but at the last moment in the rise of skywalker was good for him so hansel characters were saw characterizations solid. He went out fine with that. He doesn't want to go out now. Probably the only reason doing this film. He's he doesn't want to go out with the last. Indiana jones film being crystal skull. Yeah so Again no one is really sure that if indiana jones five will be released next year or not. It's supposed to be released. July twenty ninth Twenty twenty two. kobe The film seems to have hit one booby trap after another. We'll just have to wait and see where they just need to keep the ball rolling. Oh i love that all right. We do know that bad batches coming very soon so next week. We're going to be sharing a basically everything you need to know about it on the on the show. So when you talk about this we'd be this week. I will be taking a deep dive into why. I love comics using the character of batman throughout the final crisis series. Just get ready to hear fifteen or so minutes of me absolutely guys. He loves comics. I'm super excited about this. And that's coming. After these episodes these episodes well the adds to these ads specifically chosen for you. Because warner brothers won't hashtag restore the snyder's and we all have to suffer because of this is tattoo incentives guys. What if i told you you could become a superhero. What would that be like happy cool. I'd be worried i'd like john. Yeah we don't. We don't have any super soldier serum but you can't become a superhero because right now there are four hundred million children living in extreme poverty around the world that means that they're living on less than two dollars a day and you can make an impact on them. You can help provide the things that we take for granted That they don't have things like food and water and medicine and education. Dry place to sleep at night Which blows my mind that they don't even have that So you could become a superhero for a single child Child champions and for just thirty nine dollars a month you can provide all this and much more so wrote simple if you think you might want to become a superhero. You might want to change the world one child at a time. Then check at lincoln. The show notes to learn a little bit more dense the double impalement. Truth and justice. The american way the people in this room which is a wearing a spangling up and be not only one. God man pretty sure. He doesn't dress like that. Man has turns the golden child and actually came out last year and a batman comic comic. You've ever read it was. It was just really confusing. And i felt like i was missing ton of content. That apparently i wasn't missing so it was just really weird. So is this the best comic you've ever read we're going we're going to talk about yes. Okay the big collected omnibus has the two best comics. I've ever read so i'm excited about this. Yeah so we're going to going through batman why he is his story and this is why love comics. And i'll be kind of talking through batman rip and his story at the end the final crisis so starting with batman rip in this miniseries. We have wayne manor taken over by a group called the black glove. Who's the black glove. They're just a rag tag group of criminals that really don't have much to do with any like a cornell's their leader is dr hurt. Prequel dr like a wwe wrestler. I'm doctor. You felt your checkup By batman is actually you know very healthy relationship at this point. At least bruce wayne and he finally tries to reveal his girlfriend. Jessie belle on that. He's batman and he's got a friend who's jesolo getting weirder as we go. She's a supermodel and her full name. Is jessie belle jet is. He's not he's not dating woman. No not at this point and so. She says that she basically telling him that. Batman is nothing more to him than a therapy project for him to cope with the loss of his parents. Dang she keeps saying that like it's not important. He then goes to his bat cave computer screens and they start absolutely freaking out with static and all this stuff and there's only one saying on it and it's zarar eventually. He is knocked unconscious by his girlfriend. Who is working with the bach. Love the whole time. And she said a saying that would trigger him to pass out now. Seeing renner with nc bruce so has so okay so his girlfriend's a bad guy her as his girlfriend is a bad guy and he and he revealed to her that she did she know that before. Yes oh that's you're just trying to play the long game. But and she fooled bruce. Wayne impressive bruce. I knew all along these girls man. You got careful about him. Yes you hear me. We then see bruce walking around gotham with a homeless man. I think his name was honor Eventually we find out that that was actually all in his head and he actually died a few months earlier and it was just for him to get back on his feet as batman eventually makes a new so he created a person in his that. He had a contingency plan. He knew that this saran stuff would happen that he was. He might get an attack on his psychological brain portion and all that stuff so he made a backup personality for him to be able to get back on his feet as batman tastes every time. This stuff He eventually makes a new scraps. There's also a bat. Mite that shows up every now and then which is the like a different earth. Batman really weird. He's very difficult to explain. In the short amount of time i have by. And then he out of those that trash stewed. He becomes the batman of zarar his backup personality. He's oh okay. So his back computer screen started saying our guest and that was a trigger word for his backup personality known that he just became the batman our because he was established in his brain as a way to knock him unconscious and get him away from so despite glove can take over gotham. They established it and everything but he made up a personality in cases ever happened naive even with the black love it just in general that he implanted zarar thing in his head. Yes that was on the screen in person yet. Well only he could see it because jess bell was already a sabotaging that through their relationship before then lost i am. I'm confused all right. So in the immortal words of the guy on lego movie i think i got it but just in case. I didn't tell oliver i wasn't listening. Batman bruce wayne made personality a bad news now are yes made backup personality so that in case ever his conscious brain was under attack from some outside source he would be able to get back on his feet as batman again and that's the homeless guy. Yes designer is the homeless guy arena. Is this backup. Personality and honor was the person in his brain to help him get back on his feet after this happened. Okay why was it on the screen. He was only able to see it. Because jesu- bell was putting it in his brain throughout the whole relationship was trying to she was. She was teasing him to do deserve our things so she was she. This glory artie level like deception. She's plantings are in her brain to get him to think he's doing it himself. And then triggers my right and then triggers that to kick in in order to to put him into this weird space exactly. Oh i thought batman implanted that in his head and and just found out about it and then she was teased. She was t- getting into planet in his own head. He already had many years before. I'm glad i clarified that years before. When he was training to become batman he found a way to establish a backup personality. Okay was a word that black love came up with to make him unconscious attack so they used his training against him basically he also. His training helped him because because he had a backup personality actually all right back to sherlock holmes moriarty tight this. This writer does a lot with detective. Work for batman but he then breaks into arkham asylum where the black glove has taken over so these villains are roaming free and because that's just sort of like what happens in every major storyline of of quite has arkham ray. Of course. well yeah and he takes down goons one by one until he gets his old girlfriend who he doesn't really know as a bad guy yet but you suspect it still And then when he gets into a room they fill his room with the knockout drug again. They knock them out and he passes out but then he wakes up in his original batman costume not a patched together suit one and he's wearing a straitjacket and he's in in a coffin being buried alive and so he because he's batman he's able to break out of it and he has awesome monologue. He's like some things may be impossible and this is really close to it but not impossible for me. It was really cool. Really cool comic. He eventually breaks out of the coffin. And heads back to arkham to put a stop to all of this because it's gone on for too long and they have to finish up the comic series. He chases the leader of the black of to a rooftop of arkham with leader tries to recruit batman but ultimately unsuccessful. And then there's a conversation which really confused me earlier. Because he's like bruce. I am your father kind of ood all right now. I'm listening again. All right. he's like. I am thomas wayne and bruce's like what and he actually is thomas wayne. He was a seventeenth century. Thomas wayne that was Disowned by his family because he basically worship the devil what is he doing on the rooftop of arkham asylum. He's doing this to be able to get back at the wayne family first of all and because he worshipped that devil he was given special powers. He had to basically sell his soul and he's immortal but that's an explanation. I needed thomas wayne that gets killed in the alley. Isn't this thomas wayne. No this is the same reality just somebody with the same name from for four hundred years ago hundred years ago. Let me not his dad. That's why are you say. I'm your father. Yeah that's base that's how it feels. Okay then the over here. This is my favorite episode. We've ever done a helicopter flies off but batman punches through the windshield and they crash in gotham harbor and everyone thinks to batman is dead. but he really isn't. That's the name of their comic batman. Rip exactly there. We go later now. We're gonna talk about his ultimate sacrifice. So why do you like that comic so much. I like it because a the detective stuff. That's really interesting. i shall have. They done an animated of this yet now. People are really asking for it. I think it'd be very good. I like the The how it shows. That batman really always has a contingency plan first of all and he can never get beaten down to the point where he won't stop fighting i mean he's going Keeps going and we see that. So many other series we see nightfall. We see in. It's just it's it's really amazing. The writing is fantastic. Are just absolutely amazed. It's very intelligent. The characters intelligent. He's he's always thinking ahead. He's always got back plan after contingency plan after his other backup and even when things go wrong he continues to fight and he won't give out exact. I like that okay. I'll take that like like that dad. i'll go for. You can be smart and never give up. i'll take it and then later in this final crisis story. We see batman making an anti life bullet using a gun to finally kill dark side breaking his one rule for the greater good. Well okay how do you make an anti live bullet you know. How in zack snyder justice league. It's technically on the planet equation. Exactly you can kind of put cosmic. It's a it's like a cosmic power. So we kind of forges a bullet using that. It's really complicated situation and so it's really okay And when he meets dark side face to face have a nice little chat villain monologue batman responds to that then batman shoots him but right before batman. Shot and dark side uses omega beam. So they kind of the kind of as a trade-off yeah both hit their targets at the exact same time and then right but right before the omega beans hit by manning said gotcha was the kinda fell out of say batman but and dark side. Ducks said gotcha. Yeah right dark side. Dies but bruce dies as well and we see this beautiful Panel of remembering outbursts. And they're all having this big funeral and are really sad so everybody thought he was dead but he wasn't dead ends up fighting dark side and then he's not dead again. This is going to be going. I just want to know what an antibiotic bullet does exactly. And why he had used that because regular bolts. Don't do anything dark side but this. This bullet penetrated and destroyed him because dark side was already weak at this point because he fell through like planes of reality at the beginning of the comic from a giant war that he has dark side. Come into this comic. Because they've got this black love thing that's been going on for the last twenty. Gist seems like standard batman seven. And you got dark side. Shows up okay. Well that's the dark side stuff at the very beginning of this comic like literally the first panel of this stuff and you see dark side falling through planes of reality after having a battle with some new gods. It's really weird. Any falls through the plains of reality and lands on earth and so he's already weak from that battle and so he's using his servants his agents to do this to kind of weaken the justice league so he can wipe out the justice league. Take over this earth and then have a bigger army to use against the new guys so he can find. I take over the universe and so we finally see we see Libra his main servant for earth. Kind of taking over everybody. The first death in justice league is martian manhunter. He gets stabbed with lieber spear that's been on fire and all this stuff so he got fired. Yes so explain to me. How this this tiny glenn rip thing. Yeah so the batman rip stuff cayenne ties more into what. The ending has in store because there are a couple of spin off comics. After batman rip called batman rip the missing chapter and so we see the literally the final issue in the big ten th anniversary final crisis omnibus is. What happened to bruce after he got shot with the omega beams. This was dark sides. Final contingency plan against this universe so basically the omega beams were time trap. That put bruce's self back through time. And bruce no know he was bruce he but he didn't know that he was a bat. Something that's all. He knew he only had like a memory. You challenges. He got any only remember that there was something to do with the bat and so he goes through like i think it's five or six Timelines from cave minera to present. And basically if bruce isn't found or taken back at that present time by The ending of this time bomb kind of then the whole universe. This whole plane of reality will be destroyed. Let me ask a question to try to clarify something. So the final crisis series is a bunch of different comics. Yes and batman rip is just one portion of that and so the batman rips or the dark side omega beams. Anti-life bullet right is all something that happens in the batman. Rip comic to tie it into the larger story of their final crisis. Not technically now. That obama and the anti bullying stuff happens in the last issue of final crisis and the thing is one of the time jumps he goes through hit. Okay no that's four. He gets gets. Hey we need like right now. Not with all the stuff like that right now. He's like no. You gotta look at this this and this this and then you gotta go. No no no. No no no no. You're wrong start. all over. All right batman rip is one of those stories that you were talking about. That just happens to be setting up the character of batman for the final crisis. Eight like a. It's like the captain. America movie before adventures in final crisis is the avengers yes. Final crisis is the whole face. So is is this. Is this anti live. Bullet beam death of of batman. Zan the snap this. Is this like a post credits. No this is the snap in and game the post credits scene. Is that missing chapter where we see bursts back in the caveman era. Okay yes all right. We have more to go through. But i'll this short her happening another reason that this was a really great series and why i love comics how they all connect with lower even if it's in different series during rip. We see a wall that has bar bateaux written all over it literally and figuratively while. It didn't seem like much then. It did ten years later when we got dark nights. Metal barbados was actually the main villain during that and they didn't even mention barbazza's very much after that wall so it's really cool seeing how they connect things as well. And then damian wayne was also introduced in this series and has become my favorite robin but we also see later on in after rip but after final crisis as well he eventually becomes batman in the future in like twenty forty something and is actually better than bruce wayne batman in some ways and so as an overall wrap up some people just like the comics for the characters which is fine some like it for the art which is fine as well. I like the comics for the story. When i just described. You isn't even the tip of the accurate. Because i was so lost. No i think i get it. I yeah i think. I think that the batman rip is a is a self contained story correct. Yes and it's and you loved a lot of the things we talked about in that story and it sound like a really interesting story honestly. It's you lost. I think you lost us when all of a sudden we're talking about dark side and all that and didn't understand that that was story then connects somehow to this final crisis. Storyline arc. I feel like nathan. Is morpheus and we're neo and you just showed us like the little glimpse of what i can't understand. I can't explain the full story of rape in final crisis. Just have to experience. These comics is what you're saying. Yes i mean. It's an eight nine hundred page comic book and it's like what a week to read. Yes i'm reading it right now. Of course you are. Ma i love it and as i was saying what i just described. You isn't even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to gray comics storytelling by should just explain even though confusing why i love and why they mean so much to me. It's cool. i love it. I love it and love the fact that you are like you in your brain when you're telling this story you're like you were having so many threads that were trying to get out and you couldn't and it makes a lot more sense knowing that we were trying to describe an eighteen hundred page story to bats and that was fun. Yeah that was fun. I hope you enjoyed art to confused about me. Just letting all this pent up knowledge. And i didn't even get to let all of it out as much as i did if you haven't already. I highly recommend reading final crisis. Okay so you don't understand what's going any prerequisites to final crisis or can you just pick up the eighteen hundred bucks and start reading. Yeah you can just pick up that he token if you know who superman batman wonder woman flash. All those characters are awesome. All right well. Is there anything else you guys want to talk about. Yes so on some. I don't remember some investors call for disney where people weren't allowed to record. I think they were talking about the get the hotel. Some executive had a lightsaber right and it was playing around with a fine but then it close like a looked like a real like how lightsaber is open and close in movies. And he's like yes it's real and then it ends and everybody's like what the heck was that and they also filed a patent for this exact it people who watched it said it looks just like i like a retracted. Retractable light source thing. It looks nuts and it's going to be for the hotel walls and marvel's what if there's some merchandise at a mall that tees the mcu whose guardians of the multi verse. Yeah already galaxies or something like that and the multi-diverse looks really cool very interesting and you know the best Dc email movie of all time shows am is getting equal nathan. So stop food right now. She's ambulance the gods cast lucy. Liu as one of the villains daughter of atlas is what i understand. Did you know that she's zam is actually an acronym for like the powers of the wisdom of solomon lease. No i'm not sure. Speed of mercury's the out i don't remember news then got black bull over here.

Advice For You Job Seekers | AM Show Hr 2

"It it's that time time time mocking lowered michael berry. Show is on the air driving into the studio this morning. There was a guy wearing a mask in his truck by himself. In houston texas good grief brother cat rosenfeld has written a piece in unheard dot com. Let me just take a moment and tell you about unheard dot com. Because for those of you. Who do your homework. assignments. I have been reading from a piece are in fact if you listened last night show. I read from an at linked by a guy named matthew crawford. I'm a huge fan of this guy just discovered in this weekend i spent the whole weekend reading his stuff. The piece was entitled. How science has been corrupted. The pandemic has revealed a darkly authoritarian side to expertise. It is the best written piece on the matter. I have read in the last year. It is that good. I go back and find out that. He's been writing for unheard dot com. He's a senior fellow. At the university of virginia's institute for advanced studies and culture the guy an ability to synthesize a number of disparate tectonic shifts occurring in our society and put them into one piece with just an a brilliant overview. It's as if you're reading. What's happened the last year ten years from now. He has that level of perspective. It's really good. What we've also discovered cat rosenfield unheard dot com guiding freddie sayers. I guess who's running this thing. I just discovered it but it's spelled h. e. r. d. unheard dot com. Go there they are writing some really really good stuff in fact. Probably the best stuff out there. There's a few folks jordan shock. Tell who you know who will be our guest later in the show but the site is really really good and well written. It's written for a smart audience. Anyway and failed is our guest. He's written a piece entitled will democrats mask america forever. Okay ka cut to the chase. I don't know. I can't wait wilby. Well thanks for having me You know i i. I think that that's an interesting question. and it seems like the answer is actually no i. I'm grateful that in the past week since the pieces published it turns out that the scenario i was nervous about and trying to explore in. That article has not come to pass. It seems like actually the opposite is happening. Why Well since the mandates have been lifted i don't know Actually don't know where you are here in connecticut where i live since the mandates has been listed So surely i've seen people beginning to take their masks off Particularly outside but also indoors so it seems as though the social consensus at a social pressure in the direction of unmasking after you've been vaccinated is enough to tip the balance and people are starting to go with the flow and also take the mask sauce. There's an interesting thing at play cap. And i think that is that the mass somebody. I can't remember who wrote it last week. Somebody said that the mask is for liberals the maga- hat for trump supporters and it became sort of a uniform. It became a mark. It became when i was growing up. You're too young to understand this but it was the o pee. Signature are the the polo radyr on the horse. On your shirt that gave you validity. You were part of that tribe. The mask had meaning rachel. Maddow said she was going to have to reprogram reprogram herself so that she didn't see people without a mask as being a threat and i think what happened was they decided that what we really want to do is get everybody jabbed with this needle and the only way to do that is we have to say. If you'll get jabbed with a needle will lay off on the mask thing because there seems to have been a pivot somewhere along the way where they said. okay we'll give up the mast if you'll all get vaccinated and that's relatively recent yes I think that you know likelihood. There was a realization that the perception that people could not change their lives in any discernible way after getting vaccinated was contributing to a lotta hesitancy surrounding the vaccine so by lifting the restrictions Cdc did that indeed. Sort of abruptly. it it definitely creates a better incentive to people who might have been hesitant who who saw no good reason to get vaccinated now understand that it's a path back to normal but i think that that's actually a good thing. I think that's the right message to be sending you know. When i wrote this piece i was concerned about was that people including people in leadership positions You know we mentioned comma harris on this unassuming call inside wearing masks in a room socially distance where everybody had been vaccinated You know was still basically presenting this impression That that was being seen by people all over the country who had not get them back stated that the vaccines were not reliable or didn't work or didn't change your life so You know to have updated things and this other direction is seems like a good thing to me. I want to read to you a line from your piece in. Ask you to speak to that around. The world masks have taken on a symbolic meaning distinct from their function as a means of preventing the spread of disease and also crucially a political one. What do you mean by that. Well as you said there was a certain identification of the mask with people on the left and I think had a lot to do with the perception that be against the mask was strictly a right wing phenomenon I think also that because of the the way that math mandates and the pandemic overall impact of the people who kind of drive this conversation the media class of which. I'm a member You know we didn't suffer The effects of the pandemic a lot of people do became very easy to get invested in something like the math as a symbol because it wasn't fundamentally disruptive to our lives in the way that it was for people who had to wear it at work for eight hours a day So you know. I think it was easy to imbue it with all of this extra meaning. It was something that you put on rarely but when you get you felt as though you were doing something altruistic you felt as though you were signaling that you were part of the good the good cause good fate so that's sort of You know that's that's what. I meant by that june. What disturbs me. You read another line from your piece new york times columnist for hot months. You pointed out the conundrum. What if you're a good live and don't wear a mask outside because the media says it's okay now because science but other lives despite science still associate maskless. Which trumpy defiance is there a button you can wear maybe a blue check or something to show your good which makes you wonder how many businesses were closed. How many schools missed out on school. How many graduations and weddings did not occur. How many wonderful moments were missed. How many families were disconnected for political gain. Not a scientific or medical end and that disturbs me. That is unfortunate Cat rosenfield unheard dot com. I don't know how long you've been writing for this site. But i have just discovered it and i've yet to read anything on there. That didn't didn't just blow me away. We would love to have you back. My dear i'm up against a break unheard u. n. h. e. r. d. unheard dot com. This particular piece which we've also posted michael berry show dot com is entitled will democrats mask america forever. What i hope is the answer is no because you won't let them.

I was last night i was thinking about how america and the world mrs rush limbaugh and that will never have him back and that gave me a profound sense of sadness anyway. Thank yes and I hope i get the guy's name right. I'm bad with names but levin show on sunday night. Yeah the guy used to be the editor also believed when a contributors science swayed bar. Yeah nicholas wade and I can't give it justice on a on on the phone call. I just wanted to make sure everybody you. If you haven't seen it people you need to see this everything we suspected because we have brains and we think we're right and they're playing politics with the left always does. The left is always loved marxism. They've always taken the sides against Jews and free people because they are against individual freedom. Yes it's not that complicated they are marxist you know you are so right sir And i did not see levine's interview with nicholas wait. I'm sure it's fantastic. I saw freddie sayers interview. I told you spent the weekend on the website unheard dot com and going through the different pieces that they've written about how science has been purchased by the government and is now simply an asset of propaganda that they use. How many times did a mayor a county judge or governor locke things down and shut people down and arrest people. But it's not our fault. The scientists the experts told us. We have to do this. And how they're using that in the same way that when the church when you had an ecclesiastical system they did that so science has become the cudgel that government uses to enforce their totalitarianism. The cdc now runs. America not The duly elected government. And i didn't sign up for that. And i won't agree to it all right. What advice do you have for those folks. On their way to the job fair that starts at ten. Am on. i forty five north between tidwell and parker at gallery furniture. Our companies are setting up as we speak. If you are out there i had. Somebody asked me as more well. And i'm not gonna say what particular job classification y'all gonna have him with anything for mine. Cause i'm unemployed and i said what else do you have to do. See this where. I would screen before dr staff told me not to scream. You're unemployed but you're too good to just show up at the job fair you. I wanna make sure that there's exactly the job that you might want your word for it. You're gonna have any jobs that i'd want like this one. Why tell you what. I don't know but what do you have to lose by showing up. You're unemployed do you need gas money. There's a lot of people in this country that have been living large for a long time and nobody in their family. None of their friends want to go. Dude get off your ass. You're gonna fuck dude. I think there are a lot of merit. Americans living daily with somewhere between mild and severe depression. And i don't laugh at that. And i don't minimize that. I think it's a real thing. I think it's debilitating i do. I don't think it's something to just be dismissed and get over it. But i do think that you've got to recognize if you've got somebody like that in your family listen. Alcohol is not the problem. Drugs are not the problem. People tell me also drank too much. He's drinking too much because his mind is not right. When you get your mind right you don't want to poison yourself when you get your mind right. You don't want to be drunk at nine o'clock in the morning. Now if a guy is having a great time and celebrate the closing of a deal and has one or ten too many. That's a different story when he does that. Fourteen nights in a row. That's a problem. There's a bigger problem at play. Then the alcohol alcohol and drugs are what mom's us to excuse the fact that their son won't straighten up his life. That's what happens is not the drugs. It's the person if you're sitting around all day. Think about what an environment you're creating for yourself is that a positive environment is that a motivating environment surround yourself with people who are making it happen. That's why i surround myself with people who are better than me because they make me better. They're more success. Not you ramon. Rj on the black lines. What advice do you have for job. Applicants to display confidence by constant eye contact with individuals. Speaking to you you like. Don't try to burn a hole through there so but you always want to remain that concert. I contact. It shows that you're competent. What it is that you're speaking about and you're confident in the abilities that you have to perform the task that they're gonna assign to you. Confidence said them in the. I make sure you remain normally. Don't look away because people aren't used to it you know what else. It's a body language thing we we naturally believe if you're looking away can't you avert my gaze being dishonest andy. Your quick advice stole my advice. Look him straight in the eye when you're talking to him and and make sure you're you thank them for their time you know. I wonder how many people weren't taught basic things. My kids say. Yes sir. no sir. Yes ma'am no ma'am. I have never yet had a teacher who didn't say. Your boys are so polite. Why do you say that because they say those words. Those words are powerful. Look people in the ass shake their hands. Say yes sir. No sir does it never hurts. You can you've got to. Cdc now runs america. Not the duly elected government. And i didn't sign up for that.

Thanks so much knowledge after is going to be somebody who send me an email michael berry. Show dot com. Send michael nina. This goes mike. Why are you asking questions and trying to spend all that money. Here's what you do you go by. And it'll be something that you never would've guessed three yolks to buttermilk pancakes and have blueberry cobbler. You slush together and you smear it on there.

Mike what advice do you have for the job applicants showing up at our job fair with mattress mac. Gallery furniture from ten. Am to two pm. Today i've interviewed hundreds of people in my career number one answer. The question that's asked don't go off on a tangent happens all the time number two. Don't talk too much. I've been in hundreds of interviews. Worthy advocate just starts talking about anything but what were there to talk about and finally and most employers employees know that experiences overblown at the end of the interview. Tell them what you lack experience. You will make up for with character. Initiative hard work passion and the ability to get along with people. Well said You know just reading the emails as they come in one of the things that comes through a lot is. you're not there for you employers. I'm gonna synthesize some of these answers. So i can get in employers. Didn't show up at the job for this morning. An hour before you got there set up their table and take a day away from getting their own work done. Think about this. If you need to hire somebody like my friend. Belinda foltz. She knows my houston dot com. She was trying to decide whether she could make today. Now didn't stop. She printed all the signs for our show sponsors. That are going to be there. There's a special signed for them on the table. So you know who they are. They'll be over the dining tables area at at where we're matt keeps the dining tables. They will be over the dining table here but she still did all that for us. She just said. I don't know if i can be there because we've had so many print jobs come in. She does printing big printing jobs for oil and gas companies. And she's one of my barometers as to how economy's doing i will call show sponsors when people are back printing sales materials that means they're back making sales presentations. That means they're doing direct mail that means their their mailing out to their clients. Hey this is our inventory of products. That's a good sign when people are not doing that. That means that inventories not moving. That's a bad scent. But anyway she said i don't know if i can set aside the time to sit there and interview people even though i desperately need people so remember. This job applicant. That person didn't show up out there to do favor. They're not there to help you there because they have worked at needs to get done tasks that need to be performed and to the extent that you can help them do that. They're willing to pay you. That's how this works. Put aside your entitlement. Put aside that you're there feeling sorry for yourself. They don't care how rude last company was when they fired you. They don't care how rough you've had over the last year. They didn't show up at a homeless shelter. They showed up to find the best person to walk through the door. And frankly a lot of people. Walking through the door will be broken. Don't give off the vibe that you're broken give off the vibe. That you coming in their doors is going to be exciting. They can't wait for you to get there because you're going to do great things for them. You are there to serve you. Are there to contribute you. Are there for them. Not you don't forget that brandon. You're up thank you so much sir. i've got some Some advice from when i was transferring out of the navy They give us some advice about when they ask you questions Eventually you're going to get to the point where they ask you. If you've got questions for them. I think it's a great idea to go ahead and ask questions about the companies well shows interest and It also shows that interest mostly of course. That's what you wanna know. You gotta put yourself listening no matter what you're doing when you go into a relationship and that's a momentary relationship right a job fairs a momentary relationship. Just remember that. Tell that person what you can do for them. They're not here to hear about the surgery you had last year. Don't they're not here to tell about the family member you lost. They're not here to give a shoulder to your woes. How you car broke down. You got laid off. You had a rough year. Your wife left you red flag. Nobody wants that. If you're there to get a job tell them what you can offer them. It's as simple as that. Think of them as a professional football team and you're showing them and the one thing they lack is tight end. I can block. I can catch the ball. And i won't be off sides and i'm a big boy. How about that. That's really all you need to know. Saddle soap for. Your chair. Is one of the recommendations david. What advice do you have. I have Parley on on that. I've got be interested in the company more than the benefits package until you figure out your shit and don't come in with a list of days and times you can't work be interested in getting a job and be willing to take a job that you know nothing about because you never know what you can learn you know so true expand your mind be. A drop of water is fat. Alternate routes get to. The path is all mind over matter stuff.

America and avengers movies he returns as bucky barnes and the falcon and the winter soldier which is available exclusively disney plus. Please welcome to the show sebastian. Stan thanks vivienne here sebastian. And thank you for having me. I feel like there were two things. We were all very desperate for over the last year of vaccines and new marvel content and it feels like they're dove-tailing together very nicely. Yes yes perfect. Timing for for both of us i guess so i have to ask when you and your co star anthony mackie where for this was first presented to you. Was it surprising. Did you know this project was coming. No we didn't. We both knew we were going to stick around and in some capacity you know because we were alive at the end game but then We we both got called in unbeknownst to us. You know for for a meeting and You know we had separate meetings. But then i ran into him at this hotel in l. a. that i didn't know he was selling and and look at me funny and i looked at him funny and and we sort of started to kind of piece the puzzle together that maybe we were there for the same reason. You know one of the puzzles anybody in show business that piece together. This year is how to shoot a during covert. Obviously you were in the middle of it you were in going to prague last very difficult with anthony. Because he's a close talker. So you know the the aspect of social distance. Perhaps the difficult bank in prague. It's like a normal six feet but it's like an anthony twelve feet. Is that what you're saying. Yeah exactly so you flew to prague. This was i guess last year before everything shut down and i will say i tip my cap early on you. Were taking this very serious. That's unco yeah. Well thank god. Fox news reported on it at the time. But we did. Because i you know i. We didn't know what to expect. And i had my best friend with. Who's a worse hypochondriac than i was and we just kept piling things on and going i mean where do we stop with this thing and you know i might. I picture of this hashtag. We were trying out. Called lucky takes europe which led to only three posts and And a birthday that that happened a few days later and then we were. We were sent back. I heard you were actually celebrating. One hundred and six birthday when you found out that everything was shut down. Yup yeah we were We decided to find that one of the most authentic you know places in prague to go in and have dinner with with and it was a crowded crowded place and And we thought it was. It was funny at the time and then It led to meeting about thirty five waiters and hugging them taking selfies with them and then ten minutes later we got a call where sports they got on a plane so i felt really good about how i spent that night. More risk than ever. Now i have to ask. Obviously you're not a buck easyjet but you are how you haven't playing this character for ten years is it harder Do you find the recovery harder of from the Intense action sequences that they put your character through yes. Well it's usually by the end of the press tourists. Are you get closer and closer to the age but Yeah i mean. I think we i think we both take quite a lot of advil you know. And there's some ice packs. But you know i i. It's just we gotta get anthony off the ground a lot more very nice. How i feel. Have a lot of empathy for anthony. It's really sweet that you're sharing that with us today. Do you have to live with it. It's like it's like You know it's like a disease that you're just going to have to live with but but we i think. Look i i you know we we kind of know each other well and we have a good rapport and somehow they decided to give us show You know to have more. So it's it's it's been a privilege you came back from prague when everything got shut down in new york city I know that you would live here before. We're an actor here in new york city. What was it like for you last spring being in a city that obviously we all know as much more vibrant than it was then while it was really strange. I mean because you know we. We didn't really know what at the time what to expect. And so everything felt out of place and you know. I think the emptiness of the streets. But i i was. I went full-on like da. The aviator caprio ocd. Like i was take my clothes off and like you know in my hallway and running them to the washing machine and the washing every little thing in the in the you know the saying in and it was really weird. But but i had this old lady across the street from me who every day every night at seven pm would come out just blast frank sinatra and then everybody else would come out into join in in in that moments like that. Just feel that the surpass all talk. I always like asking anybody who is young. Living in new york especially actors of what their first their early apartments were like. Did you have any doozy's back in your day. It was i all all saved Three twenty three west forty second street route across or authority and i'll area great area. Yeah balloon at times square so we felt lucky. But how many. How many roommates were you and back then Well i had one official roommate that pay the rent with be and then we had all of our rutgers friends kinda like just hop off the bus prostrate and then crash with us you know but it was. I don't know if you everything about that was romantic for that. So we said that's what we said to ourselves so you walked outside. Yeah you get and you want to see something romantic. You've never seen romance till you've seen the port authority at night. Oh yes yeah. Yeah that will definitely shake things like the one neighborhood. They just haven't tried giving a cute name to like they're like now fourth or yeah. It's always you know what it is but but in a way that was something grounding about it and it's like you walk out at your city you know you always just light greets you in any kind of you know puts you on reminds you of the right things.

I knew you were doing stuff in chicago but you would just come out to l. a. And you guys are gonna play together. Was it love at first sight. Well we we have kind of two versions of this for me. Megan says yes that for me. It was love at first sight. But i i was living. Someone's dirt basement and meghan had just finished her first two seasons of will and grace so we were in such different places that i had like crazy. Princeton popper like princess and the pea a real class struggle to get through two weeks of of like in relation to sort of realized that megan was all. That was a human like mega. I really liked placer so high on a pedestal. So i had the feelings. I was like. Oh my god. Am i or are we sparking is this canoed ling. But i was like no. It can't be she's a. She's like a professional actress. But eventually it work down out it. Did he ask you for your number. Oh he no. He had called the number. I put on the The number of gave out everybody on the call sheet was my fax number launch creates likeness stanway number. You know so. I didn't know that he'd left a message on my fax machine. Asking you to go out and here this cowboy fan until two weeks later so for two weeks. He thought he'd been completely iced. But then i finally heard it was. It was his dulcet tones. That because he really just have a good speaking voice except when his character did he. I did you have to sort of introduce him to the the finer points of of society. Oh god the first time we went to a restaurant. He tucked his napkin into the bib of his overall. Which is how it's done. Jed clampett than it normally hillbillies life and he turned out fine working class in you end up in los angeles at a fancy dinner. You took your kennedy you guys. You also have a podcast called in bed with nick in meghan now i have always found you guys to be a couple. That is very happy to share The innermost details here relationship has a have you found any boundaries that you haven't wanted to cross yet is it the same as it was even in podcast for him. I mean that's pretty fall on because the thing is that no matter how much we say our relationship. Nobody really knows you know. Now this is fascinating to me meghan. You found because you say that. And i think that's true but you actually found old letters of of your mother's and so this is actually. You're actually finding out more than anyone. I think most people ever find out about their family. It's kind of unbelievable really. I mean i found giant bins hacked with letters written to my mother. Like love letters written to i mean i'm talking about like seven hundred fifty ladders just just from guys and then another giant been bit of letters written to my father so they saved everything so i have love letters written to my father and i have all the letters from his mother and his father and his brother and sister and i just found themselves. That's what i'm doing full time. Every day is reading these. Were they a passionate couple. Your parents will. This is there before they knew each other guys were things that were written to them before they knew each other. That's fascinating it's it's cayenne believable. It's crazy it's pretty also embarrassing for us in that is before obviously texting but even before you comfortably would call someone on the phone and so this is just a correspondence of like people in their late teens and early twenties and even the dumb moms are so well written and there's an area addition that's like. Oh my god this is us being like. Oh my god. Did you see scooby doo. And these people are writing about like the war effort wartime also and But it's it's very humanizing because you know everybody. Have you always think like people back down motions like we do. Of course they did but but also there are some hot guys. I mean the the hot gus cushion off the charts. And there's a couple of kind of shocking. You know there's a letter to my father from this real floozy and there's this really disgusting letter that my father wrote to a guy friend. Never mail that so gross bad another fighting letters that your parents wrote but the ones that even they knew they shouldn't send us flying things like i'm gonna come see you this weekend and and we are going to get tight.

Now, this is a special moment. Gonna tell you why special moment. We all know that I'm famous or not infamous for saying how much I despise cowboy fans across the globe. I have been on the record stating that did the most disgusting nauseating fan base in American history. Why? Because they could go one in fifteen. The Caesar can end on a Sunday night at seven o'clock at about seven fifteen. You know, we're gonna win the Super Bowl next year, right? I did. They just make. They make me sick. I can't stand up, but I'm only playing around. But I mean, it's somewhat. Threes are not bring this up is because do you have any idea how special you have to be to write a book on them damn Cowboys. And the be in my studio. There's very, very few people I would allow this to happen with, but my next guest is one of them. He is an NFL columnist. He's been with the new York Daily News for many years. I am incredibly familiar with his work incredibly fond of his work. He's done television. Obviously, he's done a lot of things in the media industry. He's one of the exceptional reporters and writers on the NFL this nation has ever seen, and he's been doing a wonderful wonderful job covering the NFL for new York, Daily News for many years. His name is Mr. Gary Myers, the author, the author of the New York Times. First of all is a New York Times bestseller. But the author of my goodness, I can't believe the title. How about them Cowboys? I cannot believe it inside the huddle with the stars and legend. First of all, somebody is as a student as a -ccomplish as you are Gary Myers, why would you write a book about the Cowboys? Because a gazillion cowboy fans in this country and around. In the world. And as you know before we were teammates at the daily news, I worked in Dallas Morning News covering the Cowboys from eighty one to eighty nine. So I've always really enjoyed writing about them and taken off people just like you. But what's the inspiration for doing it now, considering the fact that does the team hasn't won? I enjoy saying this. They won a Super Bowl, this nineteen ninety-five to playoff victories on their resume sets nineteen ninety-five twenty three years ago. So why now, while of party, the motivation was to find out why the still immensely popular and why they're now worth five billion dollars when they haven't been to the Super Bowl since ninety five value keeps going up. The popularity keeps going up. So I decided I'm going to try to pull back the curtain on how this team operates, why their marketing is so far had everybody else and explore also wide spin over twenty years since they've been to the Super Bowl. So. Had extensive time about five hours with Jerry Jones, and you know, Jerry's like you in one regard. I can ask you one question I can probably sit back for about twenty minutes. Five hours Jerry. I probably get like five or six questions. So now he was great, and he was very forthcoming. I spoke to his kids who were very involved in the in the operation, had a lot of time with Whitten and Romo and Everson walls endorse it. And yes, I took it took it back down Johnson. I spoke with it was really a lot of fun. I think it's very anecdotal book. I spent some time with Jimmy Johnson Parcells how they get along with them, why they leave all kind of stuff. I think I opened the door to things that haven't been explained before. So that's why I wrote the book game is right here with Steven a. on ESPN radio and ESPN news. Talk to us about Jerry Jones from the standpoint of this book and give us a little bit. I know you can't tell us everything but give us a little Bill, whatever you want to give us some insight into what will surprise us and MS book about Jerry Jones. Because we get we, we all have the impression we know everything about Jerry Jones, right? Because he's Jerry Jones and he. In front of the camera. It says magnet. He loves it so much, etc, etc. But what is it about Jerry Jones in this book that might surprise some of it? Well, I was there when he first sports a team, and I remember Jeff roar who was aligned backer from Yale. So he's a really bright guy Jerry's first day he's walking around the locker room singing the theme song from the Beverly hillbillies. He thought he was jed clampett. Right? Where people in Dallas did know is that they weren't getting jed clampett. They were getting JR Ewing that just a tremendous businessman might be pretty cut throat. A real jetted family man in terms of involving his kids, giving them tremendous responsibility. It is real. I've called this. It's a five billion dollar mom and pop operation. It really is. Takeaways, family out of the equation. People wonder what's the first priority making money or winning, and he'll tell you it's winning, but there's certainly a lot of evidence based on the results that it's making money. I think people who read this book will find Jerry to be entertaining to read the stories that he tells. To defer to his football. People even know he's quote unquote, the general manager. There's there's a great anecdote near about the two thousand fourteen draft with Johnny Menzel on the board and how Jerry went around the entire room Steve and was begging just one other person in that room to agree with them on my in Zell and he will news outvoted fifteen to one you said, okay, fine. You know, take take man's, take Zack Morton. I'm not happy about this and he leans over to Stephen who idolizes father and his father's mentor, and Jerry slap Stephen on the leg really hard. And he says, I want to tell you one thing, son, I didn't get to where I am in life by plane things down the middle. You have to take risks and you just play something down the middle, and that's the way you're gonna live your life. You'll never be a success. He said that the Steven Steven, wow, so that's Steve and had a Stephen take that he was extremely hurt by that. I mean, think about that if you wouldn't take Johnny Manziel of all. Things in life that father could be disappointed that you about an excoriate you about this to help you get better in the beat better. The one moment where he does this to his son is over Johnny Manziel. You have to remember, Johnny Manziel was from Texas. He was a huge college star, they they love Romo, but they knew the end was near Jos trying to formulate a succession plan and thought Johnny was the the answer despite all the red flags that everybody in the in the league knew and obviously surfaced. Let me ask you this question piggyback off what you just hope me since we've seen what has happened to Johnny Manziel. Has that conversation ever been revisited whether it'd be Stephen Jones or Jerry Jones to your knowledge? Oh, no. I think they've definitely talked about it when Cleveland let Menzel go. I mean the question then was okay with Jerry going to try to bring them in and rehabilitate them and Jerry's taking chances on players in the past as we know tank Johnson, pacman Jones, Greg, hardy? Yes. Even the stuff was Zeke Elliott leading into? Well, I'm not sure that surfaced before the draft that was after that was after they acquired, but sticking by Zeke. Yes. And going to the mat with Roger Goodell on that. So I mean, there was a serious not I wouldn't say concern, but curiosity, whether Jerry given a second chance now to get Menzel for nothing, whether he would step up and say, let's just bring him in. We got nothing to lose, and fortunately for the Cowboys that didn't happen because that would have been a train wreck. It would have been a tremendous distraction and completely unnecessary. Plus I think he's proven to at this point through what he didn't fell, that I don't think he can play at the NFL level. Have you ever asked Jerry Jones? Do you believe that the Cowboys are worthy of being recognized as America's team? I mean, I consider this'll be the greatest country in the world. I'm quite sure you think about the greatest country in the world be and you got a football team that's synonymous with their caught America's team, but they've produced. Thing, but mediocrity over the last twenty five years. Yeah. Well, he inherited that name and he inherited the brand and he built on it and he's not about to say, you know, we haven't been disable twenty years. Take it back. Let's let them borrow it in New England for a while. We can pray that we, we go over, pray, Gary, Gary, Myers. How about them Cowboys inside the huddle with the stars and legends of America's team, Gary Myers, New York Times, bestselling author right here with Steven eight on ESPN radio and ESPN news. Did they talk at all, or do you talk at all in this book about Tony Romo and the transition from Tony Romo to adapt bresca. Yeah. And and here's the thing they knew when Romo came back towards the end of the sixteen season with back on eleven game winning streak, that there was no possible way to make the switch. And I actually remember you picking on picking up on something I wrote towards the end of that season were Jerry said I couldn't foresee how Tony Romo will play a part. In our run to the Super Bowl, and I remember watching you on first take on. Thank you. Jerry just blew it up. Yes, I did. He opened his mouth and I knew exactly thank you very much. I think that the cowboy, I think they would have liked for Romo now this is in hindsight because then they wound up losing to Green Bay in the first playoff game. Garrett did not give Romo chance to win back job once he was healthy and he felt like he could much like Bella check, good Bledsoe a chance to win it back from Brady and a one. But I know and there's there quoted in the book that looking back on it, they think that Romo would have given a better chance that they would have beaten Green Bay in that playoff game. Because you know, that was Prescott. It was a rookie is obviously is first playoff game. Plato k. didn't play great Rogers made that great throat the game. But I think there's a lot of regret. I think Jerry's number one regret in twenty nine years. He's owned. The team is never got to a Super Bowl with Romo because he loves Tony Romo. No question about it. There's like an adopted son of this and I met Jerry. I've met. Tony Romo Mr Robert Kraft's house a few months and the night of the AFC championship game. I couldn't believe how Larry's Tony Romo was I, I ended up loving the guy. He was hysterical you supporting adult. Was that the night before? Deflate gate. No, no, no, no, no, you know what? It might have been. This is known this last year last year. Last year. Okay. Last year before they play Jacksonville. Okay. Well, okay. At night the night before flight deflate gate, that would have been some stories game is right here when Steven on ESPN radio and ESPN news, did they talk about, you know, when we talk about Steven Jones, I often bring him up because I wonder about this. The belief is that Stephen Jones, the family itself. They're the only ones that Jerry Jones will listen to. They can get him to do things. He normally wouldn't want Ryan. Do. Is that truly the case, or is Jerry Jones really, really running the Cowboys. And it's like, look, this is what we're gonna do and you got a family that stands behind him. Well, I think the Manziel example I gave you, you know, is a pretty good indication that although he's got final say, he's not stupid, and if he's got fifteen people saying it's the wrong thing to do, he's not gonna go ahead. But you did say, fifteen as in fifteen, zero to only vote was him, but one that went right, Jerry. Well, what if you said he was the only look for one, so it would have been fourteen to two and he's still would have overruled everybody and pigments. And I think that there's people in that room that he trusts and he really does trust Stephen and endorsement. The best endorsement on Stevens intelligence comes from Parcells who took him under his wing and four years. He was in Dallas told me during that period of time. And when I interviewed Bill for the book Stevens, a really sharp guy, the Cowboys will be in good hands. With Stephen after Jerry steps aside or or passes. So I think he does listen to his family on the football stuff. And on Jerry junior was very involved in the bells and whistles that they put into AT and t. stadium and the star, their new practice facility. I think there's a misconception that on the football part of it, the Jerry's, a dictator. Now in the business part of it, no one's gonna tell them what to do for the most part because he's brilliant. I mean, he's in the hall of fame he is is in the hall of fame because of his the business deserves it by the web -solutely, the football part of it. You know. Listen, we all know that Jimmy Johnson built those teams that won the first two Super Bowls. Jimmy leaves and Barry Switzer even Barry Switzer was able to win a Super Bowl which Emmys players. But once free agency came in and the cowboy start to get picked apart, and there was no Jimmy Johns near the to choose to players anymore. And Jerry got more involved in general manager title wasn't just a title only you seen what happened. I mean, the talent level just is really slipped and they've net they've come close a couple of times where they've had the number one seed, but each time that's hap- they haven't been passed the divisional round playoff, not at all since Jimmy. Do you know? I know Stephen anyway, here we love him. I game is right. He was evening on ESPN radio and ESPN news in a couple of minutes how I'm expecting to have a surprise guest. But before I get told me, but I'm not telling you, that's right. But before I do that, I need to get back to a couple of more questions. It's very, very important for me to know. I think about this right now, this Cowboys book that you wrote some things come to mind. For example, Teo. Do they talk about that situation? Why he ended up in how he ended up departing from the Dallas Cowboys? Yeah. I mean, Parcells was well, poor soldiers already gone by this. Right, right. So chill less another couple of years. Yes, parcels. It's the only player that I know he was so outwardly. Not fun, not fund over. I hate us too strong a word, right? But you're talking about before he arrived on even after he arrived. He did not want. I know you want us team, but when I talk about in the book is Jerry goes to parcels and says, I need to get close to TO's people you can you help me up? And and Bill was really close to Jerusalem house who was representing te'o and Bill set up the meeting between Rosenhaus Jones, not for second thinking. The next thing he was going to hear from Jerry is all I just signed him. But Bill can coach anybody. I mean, we saw that all throughout his career. He just didn't like t. o. because he thought he was all about te'o. You can never count on them down the field to run the right route. He's he wasn't a dedicated blocker and bills mine and he was all about himself. According to Bill Bill came up with term that I actually thought he invented, but I looked it up. He says, te'o has a narcissistic disorder and that is the thing. I mean, I googled it and it's a thing and he felt that always got in the way that no matter what he couldn't be happy because he was all about himself and he always wanted more. Jerry got fed up with te'o at the end of the eighteenth season. You remember the whole thing with Romo after they lost to the giants and seven division around now, it's my quarterback. The whole Cancun thing was ten months later that Teo went to Jason Garrett, who was any offensive coordinator to say that ROY Whitten a such good friends that toy. Onis freezing me out of the offense and not throwing the ball. This is the guy he cried about ten months earlier. Now he's basically saying the quarterback won't throw him the ball. If you ended that season despite he was on the first year of a three year extension, Jerry says, I've had enough and he cut them. I know to book probably too late to get into it because again, it's out now, but, hey, Brian off a few weeks. Right? We talked te'o now we get to Dez Bryant. I mentioned as being cut in the book. Is that the same? Is that more of the same? What you just described about Teo? Was that more of the same with Dez? Right. Well, it was a combination of things. He, he really lost his separation speed that he wasn't getting open. He dropped a lot of passes. Go ask copiers. He never developed a chemistry with deck that he had with Romo and he was a pain in the butt on the sidelines. Watch those games. You seem storming up and down on the silence yelling and screaming, kinda would. Winnow Dell's doing now. I mean, that's a whole other story, but I think it was just a combination and plus she's making too much money. But the important thing to remember Steve is that he never, Jerry never went to Dez and said, bring it back, but we gotta cut your money in half never gave a game, agenda curry structures deal. And why was that? Because they felt he had outlived his usefulness that he wasn't the same player. He was in thirteen and fourteen, and that it was time to move on is Jerry that kind of guy that's capable of emitting he was wrong and he'd like to correct a mistake years to dimension. Well, I think that he is not on Dez. I. That's where he's admitted. He went wrong and have like do over was when Jimmy started getting on his nerves. To have more patients in second step back and think we gotta really think good thing going here. I got a brilliant coach and a brilliant personnel guy. I'm handling the business part. I inherited a team that was losing a million dollars a month when I bought the team and nine hundred ninety nine going to continue to concentrate on that because I'm turning this into an incredibly value for valuable franchise because Jimi was turning them into apprentice Super Bowl contender, but they couldn't leave well enough alone. Jimmy, Jerry has said he handles adversity much better than they handle success. His family was telling him to back off let Jimmy Jimmy and he just couldn't do it. If that's the case, then why is it Jimmy Johnson and the Dallas Cowboys ring of honor? He's a two-time, Super Bowl champions and what you just described. One could easily say Jimmy Johnson deserves just as much credit as much credit for the Dallas Cowboys be worth five billion dollars as Jerry Jones because everything is predicated on. The level of success that Jimmy Johnson helped produce how come this man is not entering of honor. That's a great question. I'm with you on this the worst, some talk in April and may that this was going to be the year that he was going to put him in. But I think the reasons that he has not to this point is because he that would be acknowledgment a public acknowledgement about Jimmy's importance that organization in the five years he was here now it's a given how important Jimmy was, but that would be a public knowledge -ment by putting him in the ring of honor that yet Jimmy was really had a lot to do with Willer at and he's just not ready to do that right now. Ready to do that. How about them Cowboys inside the huddle with the stars and legends of America's team, New York Times, bestselling author columnist extraordinaire for the new York, Daily News. Well, used to be the New York daily now we're yet now. Now I'm writing somewhat for the a contributor to the athlete or contributed athletic. What else? Because I know you're writing books. I'm writing books doing some radio here in New York. And having fun and the listeners just to queens boys sitting together and talking some ball. Thanks a lot buddy. The great, Gary Myers, right? He was Stephen a on ESPN radio, edit, eight, say ESPN. It's edited seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six. You're listening, loudest Stephen Smith show ESPN radio. I gotta tell you something before I let you get on outta here. I want to say, I appreciate it. I've been in the mire of your work for many many years. And when it comes to the NFL you simply wanted the best to have ever done it buddy. I appreciate that. You know how feel about you. So I really appreciate you have them in unless as success bosseaux because I got news y'all. I couldn't. I couldn't right out of a paperback appeared to Gary Myers and Ian O'Connor guys like that. We all work together. That's rubbed off on me. Subway. Well, you talk a lot better than almost. Thanks a lot. Gary appreciate, but it takes. And then they'd say, ESPN it's edited seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six is a lot of stuff to get into. I'm still waiting for my special because I think he's on the phone right now. I think they're about to tell me he's on the phone right now and I don't even get boy. Look if we didn't have enough time Gary to get into this because of this dam giants and how they looked last. They booked. Why people are lucky lucky to get into that. He's here right now, but we share the Gary. Thank you so much on the line with us right now. Ladies and gentlemen. Is a young man, I must confess to you. I owe him in apology. I have to I, I him an apology. He looks like an absolute stud a superstar in the making doing a fantastic job ladies and gentlemen, the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes on along with yours, truly. Right now, what's going on? Patrick? How would you meant. How you doing? I would say it's going good. You undefeated at the league? MVP was right now you'd probably win it. Everybody's been talking about you and I gotta start off by saying, I'll Yuna policy. My brother, I knew you could play. I knew you could bowl, but I didn't know that you were this good. So congratulations on the season that you're having. Talked to me about how you feel you are doing this season. Yeah, I appreciated. Yeah, we're doing good. I mean, that's what team. I feel like we're doing really good or executing the game plan coaches putting in great game plans and winning football games. So for me, it's still early. So we're still building, we're still getting better. Keep working at our ultimate goal. Give us insight into who you are, just as a person. And I only ask that question in this regard, Patrick last year running across guys, like Kareem hunt, my man, Travis Kelsey, even coach, Andy Reid. I mean, everybody will they were raving about you before you ever started the last game of the season. So I think it was against Denver because they talked about not just your talent. Put your belief in you most Gaza, the young. They wanna work their way through things. And the one thing that they're lacking, the some degree is confidence that never appeared to be a problem that anybody else's mom when it came to you, talk to me about what it is. Yeah. I mean, I've always been a competitive guy. I've always felt like I could eat with the best. And I knew if I just worked hard and did everything the right way and handle my stuff off the field and in the in the film room that whenever I got my opportunity, I could make plays. And so for me, it helps out a ton that I'm in a situation that I met with this great coaching staff, the great players around me. But I, I knew that I could compete and I was go out there and compete every single every single day and to try and make myself better. In the short time that you've been starting quarterback in the National Football League, what would you say is the one component or the one thing that you've learned the most that any quarterback that wants to want to last and succeed in the NFL has to have? I think it's just being prepared. It's the biggest difference between me now and even in college is how prepared I am for the games. I mean in college I watched them film. I did all that stuff, but I kind of relied on talent or a lot of being able to go up there and make plays. Whereas now I make sure I'm prepared for every single game. I wanna feel as comfortable as possible and know that whatever the defense Thursday. I mean, I I could. Found a way out of found a way, make a play in it. And that's something that I feel like every young has to learn. You have to repair in this league unlike you've ever done it before, and I feel like I'm gonna keep. I've been doing it and I'm to cartesian going going so far. What would be the difference between Patrick Mahomes in week one as the sauna quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes now in week. Six. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I feel like just every game I thought I'm getting better just learning more found ways to make Justice all the field. I mean, we sorta how hot star, but I kinda out there running this game and and doing what I what I thought was the right play. But now I've already feel like I can make it better at just within the game. And as the season goes on and my career goes all the healthy, even more and more with the more experienced I get in most sports, Patrick Mahomes you, you see guys and they get drafted, you know, the draft lottery and basketball and high draft picks in the NFL, etc. Etc. You'll look guys get drafted, and they've got a chip on their shoulders because of where they landed, you will pick tenth. Overall, Andy Reid moves can't city. They do what they can get you at the number ten overall pick the only quarterback that was pitched before you fi- recall correctly as Mitchell Trubisky in Chicago. Nevertheless, there were nine guys picked before you, even though you had thrown for five thousand yards at Texas Tech. Your last season do you did you find yourself leading up to being picked by the Kansas City Chiefs. Thinking about those kind of things saying to yourself, hey, somebody better grab me. Whoever gravity is going to be lucky because anybody else passed me is gonna pay a price. Yeah, I looked at it that way for me. There's getting picked in the first round pick to the overall by the Kansas City Chiefs who already had a great quarterback. Alex Smith, it just makes me want to prove that they made the right decision every single day. And that's how I feel like I wanna prove that first off spread quarterbacks effectively. I would approve that the GM, Fred beach coach read, and everybody organization that believed in me. Right? And I'm gonna prove my family right that I could do this at the highest level and make all them pro grad to Mahomes, talk quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs right here with Steven a. on ESPN radio and ESPN news. Fourteen touchdowns just to into searches on the season, completing about sixty three percent of your passes. Everybody's looking at you to talk about how electrifying you are last week. However, you go up against Jacksonville, it wasn't your greatest game in some people's eyes and other people. It wasn't damn good game on your part. What did you learn from going up against the top? Ranked defense like Jacksonville? Yeah. I mean, you weren't a ton there. You learned that you can't make mistakes. At all. I mean the the two interceptions through what was the overthrow and woolens this up ball fairly behind the receiver come across the field. And so for me, knowing that those that little mistakes resulting to intersection to something that I have to learn and when you play good teams, I mean, luckily our deepest played really well. We play good teams lose games. I thought when interceptions like that. So this learning from those experiences and also learning from all the good things I did in that game and how I was able to move the ball up and down the field against probably one of the best defense in the NFL just gives me confidence that I can keep getting better and I can keep winning a lot of football games in this league. Winning the reasons I was a stickler for hold and ought to listen to kick in play. He special, but can we pumped brakes on them just a little bit because dammit, look at what he's got to work with. Got tyreek hill. He's got Kareem on. He's got Travis. Kelsey, got same Hussein Watkins. I mean, everywhere you turn, this guy's got weapons all over the place, but obviously you don't want captaining that ship right now. When you look at the cans. The City Chiefs, is it to sue or is it okay in your mind that people are now looking at y'all as potentially a favourite to come out of the AFC and represent the AFC conference in the Super Bowl because of you in a talented you've got around you. I mean, there's still a lot of season. There is a ton of talent around me. I look great team a team that can make a run to the playoffs, and that's the Super Bowl, but they're still a of season. I mean, last year at this point we were five zero, and then we kind of went on a dry spell. And so we've talked about that. We talked about those things in the law karma. We know the process, it's a long season. There's going to be there's going to be down. But if you come in every single day and you work hard and you just try to get better at least a little bit every single day. That's like teams that have a lot of success where you're gonna team, that when the can't be chip in the end, not to stock quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, four let you get on outta here. Jacksonville is tough there in the lead defense make no mistake about it, but you're going up against somebody else to lead and it's not just about Tom Brady. 'cause you don't have to play against New England's offense. You gotta play against it defense. But more importantly, you've got to play against a man widely considered the greatest coach of this generation of not the greatest coach ever who doesn't lose two young quarterback. He's like twenty five and go against basic basic rookies. Have your thought. About it at all, having to go up against a Bill Belichick coached team. Yeah, it'll be a great opportunity for me with all this team. I mean, this team will be well coached. They. They've been really, really good for the last two decades and they're going to have an unscheduled look. I mean, they they're coming up with Thursday night games that ten days game plan for us, and we know they're gonna throw some stuff out there that we, we haven't seen the film and we're gonna try to make adjustments throughout the game and go out there and compete at their home stadium and hopefully come up with the wind, tragic Mahomes talk, whatever the kids cheese. Men are preciado your time. And I know you gotta run into a meeting, but I appreciate you calling into the show. Thank you so much. Wish you nothing but a best. And again, I apologize for doubting you, man. I apologize Africa yet. All right, buddy. You take it easy. Good luck particularly the one and only Patrick Mahomes star quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs right here with Steven a. on ESPN radio. By the way he's leading candidate for league MVP on his right now case, y'all know it. It eight say e. ESPN it's inundate seven to nine, three, seven, seven, six, Patrick Mahomes star quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. Just on with yours. Truly, the Stephen Smith show on ESPN radio. Thanks again to Patrick Mahomes, and thank you for calling in and holding on while I talked to Patrick Mahomes after these breaks, I'll get to your calls in a minute. You're listening live just a day. He just being radio. Here's news smoking always affected my daily life because I was a closet smoker. It really sort of controlled my entire day. My boss is the one that recommended jewel, so I decided to give it a try. You don't get any of the odor of smoking. There's no ash all over your car. I would say give it a try, get the flavor and satisfaction of smoking without the mess of cigarette. Asher lingering odor switch to Joel check, OJ dot com. Slash sports.

Stephen, a Smith show ESPN radio presented by progressive insurance, make an easy to bundle your home and car insurance is get back to the phones. Thanks again, Patrick Mahomes star quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs will come in on the line with us when he understands Nate Smith show ESPN radio, let's go to Dan. You live with Stephen, they talked to me Dan. How are you. Hi, steven. Thank thing to have a nice birthday decide you and Joe Girardi had the same birthday, judge ROY. I agree with you on Monday. I think the chiefs win this game. They'll get the number one. These still believe that. What do I believe that if the chiefs his, I'll go step further. I believe that the chiefs, if the chiefs get home field advantage in the playoffs, they're going to the Super Bowl. That's. They gotta have home field advantage. I don't think you're right. You're right on on. Hold on. Hold on. I think that the chiefs, if they have to go to Foxborough, they don't win it. I have to go to Jacksonville. It might be tough, but if the chiefs they have the playoffs. If the road to the Super Bowl has to come to Arrowhead stadium in Kansas City, I think the chiefs win the Super Bowl. I mean, I think they go to the Super Bowl. I'm sorry. Okay. You're right to pick any south. Thank you. You do the saying, let's go to area lava. Stephen Barron. Stephen as they're calling you from Jacksonville, Florida, Duval, baby. I just had a question for you concerning the Jacksonville, Jaguars two questions. If you don't mind, the first is giving last year in our success last year and how we're big on the patriots as well as you know, Nick foles leading the Philadelphia Eagles and you know, we're going to maintain our lead. What would have been a Jaguars eagles matchup was last year, our best chance to win a Super Bowl. It looks that way. It looks that way because you have to remember, you have to remember that you were in a FC championship game last year. The defense is elite, but Blake Bortles didn't play that bad. Blake Bortles has been exposed to ready this year. I mean, he, he was awful. He was awful last week, make no mistake about it. That's why you able to have your way with. That's why can't sit was able to have the wagons you. He's got eight touchdowns and seven interceptions on the season. He's only completed sixty one percent of his passes and a pass happy and a pass friendly. And l. right now, when you look at it from that perspective, there's no way around this. Blake Bortles. Impediment to your success, which is second question real quick. Go ahead. Yes. I guess you're quick just wanted to get your thoughts on the news reports of the Jags move into London. Moving the London. I can't see happening. I can't see that happening. I'm not sure about that. I got to see that to believe it. I don't think the NFL is nearly as popular as it is in the United States of America. I don't think it resonates to the same degree in inning in London, England, I personally don't want considering how rough stuff is on their body to play on the field is on a party of an NFL player. I certainly don't want to see their body exposed to excessive travel. I don't like that at all. I'm not down with that. I don't feel it. Appreciate the call. Thank you so much real quick. Let's go to Chris Alava Stephen, he was Chris. Hey, Steve, really how you doing. It was major frustration last night me and my wife thought I was losing my mind, less light. That's how bad it was, you know? And and and the thing that pisses me off about Shurmur we, we all know the offensive line can't stop a little kids, right? We know this. Why don't they expand their offense? Like you'll saquon Barkley. He's a stud. Just do more screen. So max. Do squeeze all you want to man, but people going to figure that out. This is National Football League in the reality is that you don't have your your offense of lines stinks, and that's really the problem. You can't run black can't outs Bach, you know, and you got a quarterback that shot because he's been the hit too much, though the punishment that he takes. He can absorb it the way to the used to man. That's what this really is about what he lie. He lie, can't throw the ball downfield. You got pass German screaming them to throw the football. You can't throw the football downfield because he's too scared because he's looking at oncoming pressure rather than looking down feel receivers. That's what your problem lies. I hear you. I just wish there was some just some more creativity because you seem Seattle has a horrible offensive line amid he moves. I mean row Russell Wilson moves, but just rule. Away from the pass rush. You know. Chris, Chris, I gotta run all I want to say to us be safe in Florida. I know whether conditions out there have been suspect. The other thing that I want to say to us that I'm gonna cut this conversation short because I gotta go. But more importantly, I don't want to depress you because there's nothing good to say about the giants. It ain't gonna just do this. Just do that. No, there's nothing you can do you season's over you season's over look to the future. My brother look to the future your calls to close out the show in a minute, stick around or touch that dollar.

Ep. 22: Horned Toads, Bobcats, and Elk, Oh My!

Cal's Week in Review

19:39 min | 2 years ago

Ep. 22: Horned Toads, Bobcats, and Elk, Oh My!

"For Meters World News headquarters in Bozeman Montana this is kells weaken review with Ryan Cow. Now here's cal the California. The legislature has passed two different pieces of legislation to further curve and regulate hunting. We covered the first one. Ab Two seven three which will abolish all further. You're trapping just in the state of California in an article on the meter dot Com but second one. I feel inclined to discuss here. Ab One two four five which we'll place a moratorium on all Bob cat hunting until twenty twenty five five years down the road the California Department of fish and wildlife could potentially reopen the season after after completing a new management plan opponents of the bill alleged that this is really just a hunting ban cloaked in full sheepskin creating a new management plan will cost roughly two and a half million money. They say the legislature won't allocate when the time comes in which case Bob cat hunting would remain permanently closed advocates for the bill claim that the bobcat hunting in the state is unnecessary in purely about killing trophy animals for sport bobcat. Hunting bands have been popping up all over the country in recent years. A proposed ban in Colorado failed to pass this spring but we're likely to see that one come up again the issue with these bands isn't so much about the importance or popularity of hunting Bob Catholic ask but rather the lack of understanding of our model of conservation. That's baked into this kind of rulemaking like it or not. North American conservation as intimately tied hunting fishing and trapping on a practical level these activities provide the lion's share of money for Land and Habitat Management Acquisition those tags and licenses we buy they fund the agencies that oversee all our wildlife sportsmen and women generously support nonprofit organizations that do great things for our wildlife and the places as they live beyond that the people really working in advocating for wildlife species are the people with the most direct and intimate relationships to those animals that would be us. The hunters enters anglers and trappers regardless of your personal opinion on hunting. It's difficult to argue the effectiveness of American game management practices as those are deeply. Lee tied to hunting and hunters us take Bob cats as a case study for much of this country's history. Bob Gates retreated as a nuisance species nearly went an extinct since the one thousand nine hundred seventies as a direct result of her model of conservation. Their numbers have recovered there are now believed to be over three million. Bob Gates in us the the population is doing well banning limited Bob Cat Huntington that we currently have won't help increase that population even the advocates of this ban admit at that fact hunters aren't killing so many cats that were impacting the species often when we see legislation like this is because people promote focusing saying on an individual not species. That's not how wildlife management works what it will do however is take away one more revenue opportunity to fund wildlife if management and alienate one more group of folks who want to spend time in the woods if California really wanted to do something great for Bob Cats they dramatically increase the price of tags eggs which are currently way too low at less than four bucks and use that money to protect critical habitat. It's a hard argument to wrap our heads around but hunters shooting individual individual animals aren't hurting bob cats as a population land development kills a lot more animals than hunters especially in California. I encourage everyone to read up and better understand North American model of conservation so we can address these arguments as they continue to pop up which they will also. Let's get that damn wildlife overpass over the one. Oh one for the record. I'm not bashing California's state. y'All have a lot to beautiful and people in fact my one issue. Is that the people there are just a little too attractive little put together if you will. I'm more of our rode hard. Put Away wet kind of guy. I'm a fan of things with scars and stories things you know taken hakin some beatings but still keep getting after good time to remind you that cows week in review is powered by steel power equipment. My battery powered steel chainsaw looks like mad the tumbled down the side of a mountain but it still works just as well as the day. I got which is more than I can say for some other things I know have actually fallen off the side of a mountain but I'll get to that later later this week we're covering recovery of New York. City's Wales Vikings Hunting walruses michiganders and Moose and so much more but first let me tell you about my we as I told you last week in episode twenty one I stumbled into an amazing opportunity to hunt elk in New Mexico state. I love actually sitting in a real live. New Mexicans askins living room recording this in Dattel New Mexico. You know dattel. It's right next to pie town. New Mexico is the only state I've heard of that opted to name a town through a TV show contest. You've probably heard of truth or consequences. New Mexico well it used to be called hot springs then along came Bob Barker and I'm just not going to get into that because I've got a ton to tell you about from this adventure the high highs and low lows of of elk hunting while surrounded by the state of enchantment which is the New Mexico state motto which is Amazing Quick. Example of high is calling in an incredibly large bull watching him drop off one mountain cross. A creek bed climbed the mountain on a direct line to me then a larger unseen bowl comes out of the timber cutting him off the to bowl square off smashing antlers. The interloper from the opposite hillside spins the larger bowl in an incredibly athletic football football. Ask Move. Maybe all Najji Harris. If you're Obama fan the ball continues up the mountain at full speed only to slow to a quiet cat lake the pace as he hunts out the source of the cow call in the high sparse new Mexican timber eventually stopping perfectly broadside slightly out of breath at twenty yards the only thing between himself and myself a few tangled weather whipped branches just enough to prevent any ethical shop no paths half from Iro at this point you can breathe again and actually study the amazing beautiful powerful animal in front of you. Watch him decipher his own set of clues news. See the wheels turn as he figures out that he's been duped. Maybe or mistaken maybe he comes to the conclusion that there were no cows looking for love on that mountainside inside lows come with the highs and get into the real details and upcoming article on the mediator. Dot Com an Arrow released neil time torrential monsoon mid afternoon nap on a spider nast a bloodless blood trail feeling the gears in my own own head spin as I decipher the clues in front of me. I love elk hunting. I also love what I describe as bycatch things I find outside of my primary. Corey one find a New Mexico. I always look forward to is the horned toad there are fourteen species of horned lizards all belonging to the Family Iguana Day seven of which can be found in the American southwest but the horned wizards can be found from British Columbia to Guatemala aside from their spines which can be soft or hard enough to actually ruptured the throat of a snake. The horned toad is known for its ability to change colors to match its surroundings and their ability to shoot blood from there is as a defense mechanism which they don't actually do U. Unless they are incredibly stressed out so you know it's a bad thing if you can watch one they'll shuffle themselves into the sand or dirt until only their heads and maybe a spiner to you from their backs or exposed the almost exclusively aunt typically seventy one hundred per day as you can imagine answer incredibly hard to digest so their stomach actually takes up thirteen percent of their entire body lot of indigestible matter so don't try and take them home no matter how many ants you think you have on hand. This species is a character as they try like hell to get away once. Kat seem resigned to sit in your hand. Fate will take care of them and yes. The horned toad is actually horned lizard. Not a toad owed. You Mexico is home to the Texas Horned Lizard the mountain shorthorn and the round tailed horned lizard the Texas Horned Lizard does not carry a sidearm at all times but it does does have the ability to catch rainwater with its back and shoot blood from its is as far as four feet both the Texas horned wizard and around tailed horned lizard lay eggs while interestingly interestingly enough the mountain shorthorn Lizard gives birth to live young anyway. It's really cool stuff and just another example of things you find with a great elk tag in your pocket as an excuse news one more fun fact for you before we get into the serious stuff. I did a lot of hunting while overlooking the La the LA is an acronym stands for very large array which is a series of twenty seven independent radio telescope antennas each of which has a dish diameter of eighty two feet and weighs two hundred thirty tonnes John's the antennas are shaped and a y configuration each arm being thirteen miles long as you can imagine the setup brings in a lot of information which I'm told is is primarily used by astronomers to study the stars and told by some probably tracked down those aliens that end up in area fifty one better get your running shoes on anyway moving on and backing up last week. We touched on how the clean water act is about stripped down allowing for more pollution and habitat hat destruction across America. If you need any further convincing that this is a bad idea and let me tell you about a whale of a story out of New York City literally in recent years scientists intas and tourists alike have been pleasantly surprised by the growing number of whale pods in the New York Harbor Twenty years ago. A humpback within eyesight of the city was an unimaginable scene. Even though the area is part of their native range who would blame the whales for abandoning the Big Apple Though as National Geographic put in a recent article quote the waters around New York City where some of the most polluted in the world a toxic stew of chemicals and garbage thanks to a successful environmental policy such as the Endangered Species Act Marine Mammal Protection Act and Clean Water Act. The whales have return when pollution levels started to fall zooplankton started to rise as zooplankton populations took off so did men Hayden an oily schooling fish that Wales Gorge on in less than a decade the whale population has increased by get ready seven thousand five hundred and forty percent from five Wales in two thousand eleven to three hundred seventy seven Wales in two two thousand nineteen. It's a positive trend but these Wales need all the help they can get ship strikes and fishing gear entanglement in the New York harbor are enormous threats is to these enormous creatures and any repeals the clean water act threatens to negate their amazing progress this your regular reminder to call a congressman or woman common today and tell them to get their heads straight on the clean water act moving on but sticking with big marine critters researchers have known for years. Here's that walruses once called Iceland home the large tusked creatures disappeared from the island about seven hundred years ago and until recently it was assumed that the walruses fled fled the area shortly after human showed up a behavior typical of marine life and the North Atlantic in this hypothesis the cows and calves would have been the first to leave finding refuge with fellow walruses that lived on Greenland bowls would have followed soon thereafter with the Icelandic group contributing to the large genetic community that exists among modern modern day walruses how ever fresh research suggests that walruses didn't migrate off the island but instead we're extirpated by Vikings. That's a fancy word for killed by Vikings. The smoking gun that supports this theory is carbon dated walrus bones in new genetic data the carbon dated bone show that the walruses disappeared shortly shortly after Vikings arrived and the new genetic data doesn't match that of walruses found anywhere else in the world. Why did the vikings wage war on these giant slow creatures creatures for their ivory of course medieval hunting accounts note that Walrus ivory was a valuable commodity at the time and that ivory trade was a popular practice by Vikings. This is is one of the earliest examples of commercially driven over exploitation and is a good reminder of how delicate our marine resources are vikings were able to eradicate an an entire species off of a forty thousand square mile island and did so without the help of guns motorized ships. GPS Big fishing nets ads or any other modern day and binion's. I want you to think of that the next time somebody tells you that folks are trying to eradicate species typically right now with all the technology. Collagen hand. It'd be pretty darn easy. We put our minds to on the subject of humans wiping out species. Let me tell you about the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska which is home home to millions of birds and tens of thousands of Caribou for clarity. The National Petroleum Reserve has absolutely nothing to do with the Strategic Petroleum Reserve which is the big store of oil that our government has stockpiled in case of emergency despite its confusing and I might argue poorly chosen name the national petroleum reserve or NPR for short is actually the largest chunk of public around the United States twenty two million acres. It's on Alaska's north slope just to the west of another huge block of public land the Arctic Addict National Wildlife Refuge or Anwar Handwork gets a lot of press but its larger neighbor goes mostly unmentioned president harding established the NPR back in nineteen twenty three after native tribes showed Yankee sailors rock rude bubbling up from the ground kind of like a far north version of the JED Clampett story Black Gold Texas tea. That's a beverly hillbillies referenced in case you missed it anyway back in the early twenties or naval fleet was just switching from coal to oil power the NPR was originally named Naval Petroleum Reserve number four as it was one of four sites around the country that held contingency fuel. You'll reserves for the navy the NPR got renamed in Nineteen seventy six when Congress passed the Naval Reserves Petroleum Act and ownership of the land transferred from the Navy to the bureau zero of land management the following year the BLM set aside three sections of the reserve as critical habitat for wildlife specifically migratory birds in care one of those sections near boy. I'M GONNA screw this up till checkbook. Lake is now slated for potential development. We're talking about huge expanse of wetlands that makes for prime breeding the habitat for shore birds waterfowl owls and other ground nesting birds think of Fort Lauderdale spring break for birds more than six million shore birds descend on on Alaska's north slope from all over the globe every summer just party birds like the bar tailed godwit that make a seven thousand miles non on stop migration from New Zealand the longest in the world and like those hormone fuelled college kids. There's a reason these birds go through all the trouble to travel so far from I'm home to get away from prying eyes so to speak only in the case of the birds. They're not trying to avoid parents. Campus cops are academic deans. They're trying to avoid predators. Particularly Fox's oxes that abaquin taste for bird eggs the current administration is trying to change the rules for development in this area and open up more of it to oil drilling and transportation in the form of roads. It didn't pipelines oil development in this area will disturb this massive avian orgy in the same roads that carry in trucks and equipment will also give predators away in allowing them to plow through all the easy protein sitting in those ground nests this matters because shorebridge populations aren't doing so well in general nearly sixty percent of North American species you she's and fifty percent worldwide are in long term decline much of the issues that these birds are facing are on the other end of their long migration routes but up here. They still have a safe. They've placed to get busy and raise their young. If we take away this last safe haven we won't be doing them any favors. Then there's the fifty eight thousand Caribou in the puck heard that live in this area year round and are a stable of subsistence hunters Caribou tend to avoid development and humans in general sense. You know those hunters harvest around four thousand of them per year so no one's really sure how development might impact this heard in fact no one's totally sure how proposed development might impact the birds either there and that's really the main point. I get in for oil and dependence that this particular place Taboada of it but we've had rules and restrictions for development of this incredible untouched the landscape for several generations now and they've worked out pretty well earlier this year a coalition of five conservation groups in the local native village of I'm going to call it knocks neck set We'll have to print this online and you I Q S. Ut took him to court claiming that all the exploratory development they've been doing around the NPR drilling test. Wells and building ice roads was done without the proper unnecessary environmental studies. If that's any indication of how the broader project is going to happen. It seems like cause for concern before we go messing up something. That's working pretty darn well. We should take the time to figure out what those impacts will be to borrow a different land and using allergy. You don't start a controlled burn without first being dam sure about the control otherwise you're just setting stuff on fire and finally speaking a Caribou they are part of one of North America's largest science experiments higher royale which is a two hundred seven square mile island in Lake Superior some you may remember member from way back on episode two of Cowes Week in review. It's owned by the State of Michigan. Even though it's closer to Minnesota and Canada you may recall meters coverage of the island in episode one seventy two of the PODCAST Steve Yana Spencer Neuharth and Pat Durkin discussed the island shrieking wolf population on AOL native Caribou were were extirpated in the nineteen twenties to replace the big deer humans brought in an even bigger deer Moose. The island's moves population is the highest. It's been in twenty years which is likely because the islands wolf population is the lowest. It's been in one hundred years to see how the increasing number of Moose Affect. IRL's vegetation researchers conducted acted feces analysis of the news for closer look at their diet. What they learned is that Moose are damn picky eaters when conditions are favourable and predation and snow are in a factor moose will eat the rarest of rare plants available. This means that if Balsam fir is rare in their home range. They'll selectively eat it but if it's the most common implant around they'll opt for something else. Biologists aren't sure if the IRL Moose are just fancy eaters or if they biologically favor a balanced diet the study suggests yes that it's the ladder and I can agree with that I to try to have a balanced diet.

TechStuff ReRun: The Wonderful World of Audio Animatronics

"Alexa Culinary Masters John Schuck Vinnie Tolo don't make compromises they have higher standards in the agreements they used the dining experiences they create and even in the vehicles it's about different technologies that were pioneered or perfected at the Disney theme parks because there are a ton of them that Disney either directly any elevation welcome to text up production of iheartradio's how stuff works I consider myself a Disney fan of film of television of their theme parks probably not necessarily in that order maybe run classic episodes but behind the curtain guys I'm currently getting ready to go on a vacation to Disneyworld which is awesome so reminded me of how much I love the technology and innovation that goes behind Disneyland and honestly I do maybe a dozen episodes verse than Theme Parks Then Television but I'm a huge fan of Disney stuff and recently when I was on a trip to Los Angeles to attend E. Three had a hand in developing or tweaked it in a way to elevate it beyond what it used to be there plenty of examples of that today without any episode so instead I'm bringing you one from the fairly recent past that I think thematically ties into my vacation this episode is titled Any Land and to go to the happiest place on earth that was not my first time at Disneyland but this was the first time I've ever gone to Disneyland completely on my own I found myself with day with nothing to do I had hoped to book some meetings that did not happen so instead of just sitting around tell room feeling sorry for myself in a city where I really didn't know anybody I decide to hop on down to Orange County California that is the home of that'd be there with my family I'm really looking forward to it but in meant that I had a limited amount of time and not enough time to create a whole new episode but I didn't want to leave you guys drive like the new Lexus. DX with available offered technology like multi-terrain slacked in a multi terrain monitor it's more capable than ever but with features like a boulder and I was a little worried about that like how am I going to have fun just by myself turns out Disneyland did most of the work for me I didn't have to worry so much and then a great time but it the wonderful world of audio and Medtronic's and originally aired on June twenty third two thousand seventeen and audio animatronic night heart radio and above all things tech and today I'm going to be bringing you a classic episode of Tech Stuff yes I know it is not a Friday when we normally onyx as I was when I was her age so sit back relax and enjoy this classic episode I am an enormous Disney fanatic brian grow and triple beam led headlamps it's undeniably refined the new lexus with Lexis safety system plus standard elevated this is n. to what I am about to embark upon and I am very hopeful that my little five year old niece ends up being just as captivated with audio Adams Hey there in welcome to text up I'm your host Jonathan Strickland I'm an executive producer with how stuff works is the technology that Disney has used to bring to life lots of different characters on its various rides and attractions so this definitely make sure that they met Disney's expectations now you can find animatronic figures in lots of Disney attractions including the enchanted them learn to puppetry right with a puppet typically you're manipulating some sort of three dimensional figure beyond shadow puppets and that sort of puppetry which is a system that Walt Disney's company pioneered to create animated physical three dimensional figures so in a way it's kind of sophisticated than what would follow so you have both at Disney parks and I'm also sad that I can't have holly on this episode Holly Who's one of the CO hosts of stuff you missed in history class apart from being a brilliant pied caster and an avid historian the crews ride has animated animal figures as you ride through you see hippopotamuses crocodiles and elephants but these were he leaves me in the dust I love Disney I have been to the Disney parks dozens of times but holly is a step beyond even amazing all on its own I'm talking about your traditional hand puppets rod puppets and marionettes that involves manipulating an inanimate object this tech really is especially when you consider what people had to work with back in the fifties and early sixties when they were first developing these systems that's a big assumption to make sometimes things just don't do not work really well I'll tell you about one of those times that I experienced firsthand later on in the he's the figures you then have the perfect show every single time you run it assuming everything's working properly anyone who has been to Disney enough times knows real three dimensional experience similar to what you would get with an animated film animated films can be perfected right you can sit there and sketch it deep pepper's ghost effect which is used extensively in the haunted mansion ride pepper's ghost involves reflective surfaces being those figures when they're working properly would replicate though same motions and have the same performance every single time so the and she is an enormous fan of all things Disney and and she doesn't just give me a run for my money running on a very simple mechanical loop system they were not specifically audio animatronic they they worked on something that was a little less there are lots of examples there also some attractions that had moving figures that didn't use the audio animatronic system so for example the it is pretty amazing stuff now the reason why Disney wanted this in the first place is he really loved the idea of creating a oh but the technology itself is phenomenal and even when isn't working properly that does not take away from how amazing you're only these would run on a mechanical system that would be painstakingly programmed rather than being under the direct control of a human being in a way to make it seem like it has life that has anima and that you are using some sort of system whether it's rods or they rejected him because he was too young he then joined the Red Cross and was shipped over to Europe and drove ambulances during World War One it ran into some hard times eventually he had to declare bankruptcy under his first studio but despite that he didn't give up official figure that's just lit in a very bright space whereas you're in a very dark space the famous ballroom sequence met with enthusiasm Disney is one of the reasons why the United States has such incredibly extensive intellectual property and using lighting in a way so that you can create the illusion of a ghostly figure appearing before you what you're actually looking at is a reflection did episode about some other type of tech in the meantime there are some other podcasts we've done that relate to Disney I did one about my own obsession so I'm sad that I can't have her here because I am absolutely certain that she would be here dropping nuggets of knowledge and Trivia he grew up in Missouri and attended high school in Chicago he was studying art primarily when he was sixteen he dropped out to join the army but the Wiki Room pirates of the Caribbean haunted mansion great moments with Mr Lincoln the hall of Presidents which would be over at the magic kingdom and Disneyworld and tons more L. and get it just right before you release it as a movie he wanted to have that same sort of experience but in the real physical world he was a stickler for acted under intellectual property law so Disney's use of sound with animation was a huge leap forward in the nineteen twenties steamboat any he was making film and animations then he would go on to create his own studio which saw some modest success but then one hundred time the character is doing a show it's exactly the way it was the first time so once you perfect a show and you program that into the Disney into enormous success over the following decades he would see a lot more success including going into feature length animation which had not been done before that has to do with Disney as a corporate entity lobbying to extend those parameters so Disney's impact on technology has typically about what I wanted to concentrate on today to do that we have to mention Walt Disney because he's central to our story he's kind of now depending upon the account you read because there are a couple of different versions of the story we actually began either in France the protection laws stuff like copyright and trademark laws that protect well beyond the lifetime of the Creator a lot of the into some Some antique shops and he came across some various clockwork toys like wind up birds you know the the puppet is essentially a glove puppet or you're using strings with a marian had to create this illusion of movement well Disney wanted to create something similar he decided to make a go at it again and he and his brother Roy were able to co found the Walt Disney Company and from that moment for of these various Disney attractions that I have yet to uncover so maybe someday I will be able to have holly on this show and we'll do a Disney oriented been enormous in both very specific ways that relate to particular technologies to the way that those technologies are in France once he is his work with the Red Cross was done over there he moved back to the United States and he began to work for an ad company really being the first cartoon with sound and Disney himself voiced the iconic character of Mickey Mouse who struck a chord with viewers and propelled and it would make little motions that you could describe as being somewhat robotic they were pretty primitive motions but close enough to being an actual very similar about Disney's cast that famous director was Alfred Hitchcock who of course made incredible read their own technology that would also allow for animation of this type sort of this automated puppetry that I was talking about one of the things he had been considering around this time although Disneyland had not yet become a reality so he brought the antique four and he was able to succeed with Snow White and the seven dwarves and he also continued to see success with short-form stuff I want to develop a fully animated articulated human being to use in place of motion picture actors and actresses so this was Russian had very very very high standards and and the people who worked for him they also would end up having very high standards everyone wanted to or the French quarter in New Orleans the story goes that Disney was on vacation with his family and as he was on vacation he decided to look in that sort of thing one specific toy he came across in an antique shop was a birdcage that mechanical bird inside of it that would chirp and sing the Houghton Mansion right is a big example of pepper's ghost so you can go and check out those episodes of tech stuff if this is not enough Disney for you all right let's talk as well as visual effects and props and sets and things of that nature for the various live action films that Disney was getting into as well so it does need was really excited about this prospect of having fully realized three dimensional characters capable of delivering a performance consistently and Jack Gladisch who was one so field as imagine nears they were thinking outside the box using engineering and creativity married together to create really of the engineers who had worked on developing audio animatronic technology one of many as it turns out would say that Disney once joked to him I'm tired of Finicky Act Ridley once said Disney has the best casting if he doesn't like an actor he just tears them up so hitchcock's joke and Mun check it out so he was really excited about this potential opportunity and he had a lot of potential there was no such thing as an imagine near yet no one had called it that but eventually Disney would end up referring to people who worked in this his knee company and said figure how this thing works so they took it apart and they took a look at it and they began to formulate ideas of how they could you're having issues whereas the animatronic ones will just do what we tell them to do and it's kind of funny because there's another famous director who said Something Truth Disney just thought this was a really cool technology and he saw a lot of potential in it and he was always looking at new ways to make use of the immense talent final and unlike anything anyone had ever experienced and for that he needed to pioneer a new technology so all he had to do they would eventually move in two very different departments and develop stuff like the actual Disneyland Theme Park Disneyworld later on they become Disneyland he thought well I need to have attractions for people to come and experience at this park any thought this technology could potentially provide some of those experiences he also had a an ability to contribute to a massive event that would happen in the mid nineteen one of the earliest experiments with this idea of animating three dimensional figure was what would eventually be called the dancing man or the little man project this would be a figure that measured about nine inches tall and was meant to dance based worried his influence on tech has been considerable from actual innovations in technology to how creators can protect their intellectual property now not all those influences upon this automated system or mechanical system at least if not fully automated the story goes that Walt Disney approached the artist our main character if this were a narrative his full name was Walter Elias Disney he was born in one thousand nine hundred eighty one in Illinois felt that there was a lot of potential there that he could use to create three dimensional physical animated figurines potentially and a theme park films of thriller and Psychological Horror genres things like the birds and psycho that sort of stuff alfred hitchcock report sense of what that meant that small town feel that you get when you walk down Main Street USA if you're ever at Disneyland or Disney world you had people who started off as animators specializing in different areas this was the dawn of the imagineering age. Here's an advance. He knew that he was going to be providing for attractions for this world's fair and he knew that the the entire attention birdcage with the mechanical bird inside of it back to his company and he went to some of his top thinkers over at the Walter Disney having a bit of fun saying that hey the real reason why I want to develop this technology is because then I can get rid of all these pesky humans that keep on asking questions sixties that is the one thousand nine hundred sixty four world's fair in New York that was going to end up requiring a lot of work on Disney's part to work and one of the first things he created was a Norman Rockwell esque scene of a soft shoe dancer performing on a state as we design and different elements of it actually come to life so I wanted to get some paintings some sketches of this so Anderson ways of using this technology already this time he was he was thinking ahead one of those was the fact that he wanted to open up an amusement park that would have been an Anderson who was working for Disney Anderson would become instrumental for the design and implementation of various elements in Disneyland Bird that you knew what it was it wasn't like it looked like a a monstrosity or anything like that he thought it was absolutely charming and he a small stage so something that you might see an old Vaudevillian theater and Disney immediately connected to it he thought that's you're walking down main street especially if you're doing it at a time when there's not a huge crowd there it evokes the sense of a small town maybe early decided to to work with a couple of other folks over at Disney he went to a sculptor who was working for the of the world was going to be on New York for this event so he wanted to make absolutely certain that the attractions that his company designed were phenomenal set and they could move around do a little dance routine for people that would be phenomenal so he took Anderson's design and he then once during the nineteen thirties left the company and then came back in the early nineteen fifties he was given the sketch and told to make a physical model that he had attracted to the Walt Disney Company whereas a lot of these people started off in the animation department where they were working on various films and shorts for Disney was in charge of the audio animatronic projects because those dependent so heavily on that audio component I'll explain more about the cultural scientists and farmer who had written extensively about Agriculture Chris the door himself had become a notable sculptor working both in the Nate Disney then took the model over to the machine shop and he also brought in the animation department now right now it seems like it would be a good time to summarize all the areas that came to get these joke were very similar in that respect this idea of the frustrated director who has to contend with the delicate sensibilities of actors and actresses but interesting experiences that you could not find anywhere else that was the value that Disney wanted to create to justify charging people admission to come public spaces designing statues that were shown in San Diego and other areas of California and also working in the movie industry he had worked for Disney actually what I wanted to see and he felt that this was a figure that if they could create a three dimensional version of it and build it in a miniature head about how the Mechanical Department the Mechanical shop they might be working on an audio animatronic figure and they would need that's what Disney wanted to create and so he talked to Anderson said I want to have this idea of building this kind of experience in miniature where people can look at the different miniature at that point forward it was just invent it no big shakes right so to start company at the time as a sculptor's name was Charles Clearance Krista Doro and Krista Dora's dad was a famous of the dancer which he did he sculpted a physical model based upon the the Ken Anderson Painting and gave that to me wait until the mechanical shop people had made their adjustments reconnect the tube and then they could proceed by union rules the machine shop folks were not allowed to accompany project yet I wanNA create scenes that evoke the American way of life and Disney had a very idyllic Dan and he said you know what you're working on a lot of stuff but I wanNA own a pay you out of my own pocket for project that are really believe in that's not really how and a little bit the sound department was ultimately the one that was holding onto the project the project leader that was the them starting with the sound department instead of the mechanical shop or animation but the reason for that is the sound department early nineteen hundreds around the time when Walt Disney himself would have been growing up where things appear to be simple and elegant look right when you watch an animated film and more importantly they had been studying animated movement in film itself as it turns out film or and the actual motions those objects would make but also the very technique for programming the objects and I'll explain more about that annex were it required people vastly different disciplines knowledge base in order to make this happen so in no particular order both metaphorically and literally as it turns out when you get to audio animatronic in order to make it possible and all of those the head of development this would end up actually causing some issues later on there'd be some disagreements between the sound department and some other to make audio animatronic even possible and I realized I haven't even gotten to what audio animatronic can do and how they do it but it's important to understand the difference disconnected so that they can make an adjustment before reconnecting it but they weren't allowed to actually disconnect the figure because that was a union job other departments and they were run by different unions which also meant that they would run into these weird problems there was a story in one of the Articles Enterprise Grade Video Conference Room designed for instant collaboration with flawless video and audio instant wireless content sharing and conferencing phone calls group Chat Webinars and your conference rooms turn any workspace into a modern easy to use zoom room and they were specifically going to focus on audio animatronic and for those who have not heard what this term is or have any idea what it means this is a quick break and thank our sponsor zoom didn't invent video conferencing they just these various figures and then you also had props and costumes that would end up outfitting these different figures so there are a lot of different moving parts here are some of the the departments at Disney that worked on pioneering audio animatronic I there was the sound department now it might seem other departments could use that as a reference and then you had the machine shop the machine department had to fabricate all the physical pieces that would be used in least magnetic tape would become incredibly important with audio animatronic they leveraged their expertise to help design not just the physical objects that would be animated and we haven't even gotten to the technology yet so I want to get to that technology and I will in just a moment but first let's take the little bit then you have the modeling department these were the people who would make three dimensional models and sculptures of the various components that you wanted one of the sound department guys would have to do so they'd have to go and get someone from the sound department to come over the the machine shop disconnect a tube garments to kind of get a grip on why it was so complicated and why it called for a multidisciplinary approach because that's exactly what audio you that on their own so it got very frustrating at times then you've got the Animation Department Disney of course famous for animation made it better now zoom is how business gets done zoomed ties together all of your communication needs into one easy APP for video groups had their own leaders and their own priorities but the fact that they were able to collaborate and create a system as intricate as audio animatronic is pretty amazing all on its own the was the group

Rogers had a lot of common ground there and Disney thought that Rogers had a lot of potential to work on astor piece but epson ended up having a massive allergic reaction to the aluminum makeup that was used for the ten woodsmen and so he there is also immortalized by the way at Disney's haunted mansion attraction you can find his tombstone they're one of the tombstone has a name that is a an image to him was created while he was still alive the tombstone reads the actual physical implementations not just animation so he began to rely on Rogers to sculpt objects for live action picture here rests wattle are bender he road to glory on offender peaceful rest so what his actual name was he took leave of the Disney Company and served in the United States Marine Corps as a staff sergeant in the photographic section and when he wasn't animating he was tinkering the actor that they got by the way was buddy epson who was originally going to play the role of the ten man in the nineteen thirty nine wizard of Oz directly other school to the Walt Disney studios in nineteen thirty nine he worked as an animator on films like Pinocchio and Bambi during World War Two the vendor that's in honor of him now as a reference Disney decided to bring in an actor to actually perform a soft shoe routine and reference points watch every little motion and trying to figure out how they were going to translate that into animation when they built this system that they were working on ride on and he had a couple at his his property like he he had a private little railroad track because he just loved someone in charge of figuring out the animation for this like figuring out what moves we need to be animated so he tapped a guy named Walter Rodgers to work on the we're going to shoot this actor with film film cameras not actually shoot the actor even Disney would not do something so brazen as that the rather to film would end up being replaced by Jack Haley however you can actually still here absence voice in the wizard of Oz it's his voice in the song the actor as he was doing the soft shoe routine against a background that was a grid so that the animators could review the footage use the grid automation for it now Rogers was born Stratton Colorado in nineteen nineteen and he was a sculptor and engineer he attended an art institute in Los Angeles and was recruits what else to become a chief contributor to the audio animatronic project in fact some would argue that he was essentially when you got down to it the lead audio animatronic engineer you're creating toys and model trains and Walt Disney was also a model train fanatic he loved model trains including trains large enough to ride we're off to see the wizard that Dorothy scarecrow and the TIN woodsmen sing after they've rescued the ten woodsmen so that that bit where there here's and in one thousand nine hundred eighty four he tapped rogers to help design buildings for Disneyland so Rogers went from animator to kind of almost like an architect Rogers trains and you love that romantic image travel by train a lot of the things that Disney worked on he worked on while he was traveling vice several Disney initiatives including Davy Crockett but for this he just got up he did a soft she routine skipping off into the distance the voice you hear is not Jack Haley's it's Buddy Epson He also by the way played Jed Clampett in the beverly hillbillies so if you ever watched that division series he was Jed Clampett Epson was a song and dance man back in the day so it was a natural choice for Disney to bring him on he would end up working on shape -able of replicating all the different motions that would be necessary now ideally you would be able to create pieces that did exactly what you needed and nothing else they took several takes of it and they use that to be their reference that the animators could use and the machine shop could use to make sure that the pieces they designed would yes because if you design a figure to do moves that it doesn't need to replicate that's time you wasted on that effort because no one's ever GonNa see it so ideally you figure out exactly what you need and you design for that specifically now one of the mechanical engineer challenge in part because Epson when he did his soft she routine for the cameras never repeated movements in the routine so all the movements he did were original and not patterned they weren't repetition and that's difficult if you're an animator you would like to have that reputation who he was originally working on some of their live action films he helped Design Special Effects for Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea he also helped Walt Disney build some of those model trains for his personal collection and Braga was one of the engineers working on this dancing man project he would later say that was a huge who was working on this project was Roger Edward Boggy Tech Technically Roger e bragging senior his son was also working for Disney alert us to transform rotary motion into linear motion or vice versa so in other words you can turn a rotational motion attached to various points on the figure and this was controlled by external machinery so you would have one amounts to a very complex gearbox that used it from scratch all the way through it made their job more difficult ultimately they produced this nine inch tall figure and they used cables uh-huh and cables in order to control the figure now cam in case you don't know what that term is it's a rotating or sliding piece of machinery petition didn't quite work on a full audio animatronic system but it did help plot the course for the next innovation and Disney not satisfied with creating this nine inch tall and we become an imagine near Bragg had moved to California from Chicago in the late nineteen twenties with experience in machine shop training he joined Disney in nineteen thirty nine so into a back and forth or up and down motion a linear one using these or you can use a linear motion to create a rotational motion if you have heard the term camshaft in vehicles as what a camshaft does this was not yet an example audio animatronic this figure it wanted to create something more complicated his next thought was a barbershop quartet a little mechanical barbershop quartet that can move and dance because you can design it once and then essentially cut and paste it and use it again but if everything is new then you have to design it up to a cabinet you plunk quarter in a little curtain draws back and you see this dancing figure dance for a quarter and then because the dancing figure couldn't make very subtle movements it was all a all or nothing really with each of the movements this thing made it jerked around a lot and it wasn't really mhm sing he wanted to sing sweet Adeline but the system that the machine shop at created wasn't really sufficient so these initial attempts to create an animated figure in real life had kind of stalled out but plans for Disneyland were continuing at the same time the park opened in July nineteen fifty five but the first attraction to use audio animatronic would follow in five years that was a ride called lifelike representation the mechanisms that control the figure had to be within a couple of feet of it so this gearbox essentially had to be really close to the dancing figure is this mine train through nature's wonderland now that Reid might sound unfamiliar to you if you've been to Disneyland and you're wondering where the mind develop this and the amount of money it will take to maintain it you will never recapture by going a quarter of you twenty five cents a view is not going to cut it the mine train through nature's wonderland which opened in May nineteen sixty and this was able to take advantage of something that some of the engineers had noticed they said her so you've always got to figure out how to mask all the cables that are running up to the figure if we make the figures larger life-size than we can which meant that you had spatial issues you had to take into account so Disney's original thought was this could be an attraction where maybe you know these small figures they require all these cams and cables and everything has to be external we have to build the actual power system outside of the figure audio animatronic systems were digital now by that I don't mean they were computer systems this is purely mechanical approach it's not allowed passive cassettes these magnetic tapes really the magnetic reels weren't really cassettes so you take magnetic reels of tape and you would encode information Wanna get into action so everything is based off sound which is kind of weird to think about it but you would store the information on these men to explain what audio animatronic our audio animatronic take on these mechanical figures that you can power in various ways and once it's done the curtain draws close and you move on but the mechanics said well here's the problem the amount of money it took to the parts and thus you have a lot more freedom to stage them the way you want to and this really appealed to Disney so one of the first implementations they had and you can't really go more expensive than that at the time twenty five cents was a not insignificant amount of money and keep in mind this is the nineteen fifties here's wonderland was a slow moving ride that put you through various scenes that were inspired by the western United States of America it was America the nature's wonderland was similar except it was a train ride through the western. US inspired areas included is like bears playing around pond now that was the first attraction to feature audio animatronic ex and I guess now as good a time as any as position which would be whatever it started off as so let's take let's say that it's a human figure that you're trying to animate and that you have two positions you have on and off that meant that any motion you wanted to make had only two outcomes arrest the pneumatic system uses compressed air compressed air is what creates the force that translates into mechanical motion in she's just staring straightforward and is it moving when you activate circuit then she moves her head to the left in sound on the tape and when you played it back that's what would create the was what would allow circuits to be completed traumatic it's not you know there's no microprocessors transistors it's all mechanical elements but is digital in the sense that it's binary movement allows or it's in the that rest position that's those two positions on or off zero or one that's why we call it digital original audio animatronic used one of two different systems to create movement either it was using pneumatics or it was using sullen Lloyd but she can't halfway move her head to the left she can't move it a quarter of the way it's either all the way to the left as far as her freedom of me did to create the movement you see now how that all works it requires a bit more of a deeper dive first of all the earliest they pair it with a system that is programmable they use audio as its method of transmitting information and taking information and your system so you'd have to pneumatic tubes that would move through this figure you'd have them you know wherever they needed to be and rain through nature's wonderland right is well it used to be where big thunder mountain is now so big thunder mountain is a totally different kind of train ride the mine train through the Western version of jungle cruise so if you've ever been on the jungle cruise that's a boat ride where you go through areas have been inspired by India and today the pneumatics would allow the mouth to open the closed position would be the rest position and it would allow the and one of your animations is your human figure needs to turn her head to the left so in the off position in the rest position would allow air to move through which would then create the mechanical force necessary to make the figure move whichever way you wanted it to so let's say the mouth to open up and when you do a lot of opening and closing it gives the illusion that the bird is actually talking when you pair it with the John but it had limited use it also was limited in how much force it could use the these through the coil it generates a magnetic field which attracts the ferro magnetic core into the cylinder pulls it in and which in turn pulls on the wire or cable which is a attached to whatever body part the mouth let's say of Mr Lincoln Saul annoyed our nation on electro magnets so those of you who have listened to me talk endlessly about electromagnetism get ready for some more this was a little primitive limited what the animators could do they could not put in subtle movements so it was good for certain types of audio animatronic early it's a bird the enchanted tiki room which was one of the earliest audio animatronic attractions outside of Nature's wonderland and still exists to this so your basic electromagnet consists of a coil of conductive material offended is insulated copper wire you run a current through this coil you connect something to the other end of that little core like a cable then attached to a piece on a larger animals and Paul pulls it down pulls it open and then by turning off the electricity to this coil it negates that magnetic field would've valves that when they're closed do not allow air to move through when you would complete a circuit it would make the valve open but that we still haven't talked about the audio part that's kind of more the animatronic part the idea this animated physical being but whether appropriate sound that was one way of creating motion but the solids were a different way that was also being used in this digital system lead you can open and close the mouth of one of the greatest presidents of United States history and thus magnificence is was a bird or a president or a hippopotamus or whatever it might be that was using audio animatronic six the sea make it vibrate as they would use a resonant frequency so resonant frequencies are the natural vibrating frequency of any given material Oh and that generates a magnetic field the magnetic field can then be used to attract any sort of ferro magnetic material that's the case of onic figure like let's say a mouth of the character whenever the circuit activates it'll pull the cell annoyed in the core into the solid Annoyed where you have a core that connect kind of like a piston so when it's in its rest position the core is outside of the stopped activating it would be off you have your character open his or her mouth or move his or her head or whatever the action needed to be and the reason the way the when the reeds would vibrate it would close the circuit and allow a current to pass through so if you made the reeds vibrate it would create a it or on a magnetic real I should say they could create a tone and they used these little metal reeds that would connect to circuits have a class and you tap the glass and it makes a little ringing noise that is resonant frequency and if you're able to replicate that resonant frequency then you will make the physical circuit that would end up making the pneumatic or Sullen Loyd system activate and thus be either on or off while on really and it returns to rest position and Lincoln shuts this trap and thus by controlling the the flow of electricity through the sullenly resonant frequency it will naturally begin to vibrate and if you then amplify that signal in other words if you increase the volume you will increase the amount of ask vibrate just by exposing it to that frequency so of you create a sound that is of the same pitch as an object grit sauce was in that audio they found the what they could do is create a tone on a cassette wings or open its mouth that's three different motions that means you would have three different circuits with three different metallic reads with three different resonant frequencies so astore allow these mechanical components inside the figures themselves at won't have to be externally controlled you could actually build these figures so they have the internal when you strike it if you replicate that tone and you amplify the signal enough you can make the glass vibrate enough so that it shatters this is what we see when cheating I guess is the right way of putting it so for example one of the figures that Disney was working on for the New York world's fair was Abraham Lincoln and in order to make all the different motions of the face the way they wanted to they had the primitive but collectively it could be very sophisticated it did require a lot of work and required a lot of vibration that you're creating in that material so again with the example of a glass if you have a crystal glass than it generates a particular tone islander May's position right at the very end so the the cylinder is big enough so that the core can fit completely inside the cylinder and when you run current and to the various circuitry and each one would have its own specific resonant frequency when you played the magnetic tape back it would play tones limitations however by creating a specific circuit for every single motion you can make a pretty sophisticated figure the individual motions were pretty larger than human sized and get the effect they wanted they wanted to keep Lincoln at the the dimensions that they felt were important for him circuit and then you get the motion so if it's a figure that has several motions associated with it I'd say it's a bird that can turn its head flap it's apparently in at least some of the whigs that they designed for the the character the bulge in the back of the head was noticeable so in creating that particular frequency it has to be close enough there's actually a small range where it'll work but you need to be as close as possible to really get the maximum effect loyd systems to hydraulic systems a hydraulic system uses liquid. Typically it's just water as its means of creating that same sort of mechanical uh it's much easier to do with amplification than it is unidentified but that's the basis for audio animatronic they had these little metallic reads that would be connected it's always going to turn it as far as the animatronic is allowed whatever it's freedom of movement is that's where it's going to go to so it's still had more on that in a little bit again this is the digital system so there's no variation here you could not have the bird turn its head halfway zingers replicate of particular note and they try and shatter a glass some people can do it but it all depends on the glass it all depends on the person's range and how how pitch perfect they are you can produce different tones and make the specific outcome that you wanted otherwise every time you generate a tone everything would go off and you would have chaos contain and eventually they were able to make a head the head kind of a bulge in the back of it and they were able to fake with the WIG that they put on Mr Lincoln although bolt which was not exactly what Disney was hoping for when he was thinking of these different designs so imagine your switch to these hydraulic systems this approach has its limitations that you could only be on or off and that they needed to have something with a little bit more you put a good amount of water pressure in and you use valves to control where that water can go by opening and closing those valves you can allow for of a spectrum of outcomes in order to get the effect that they really wanted that approach required them to switch from pneumatic and Sullen a company that had a vested interest in the public seeing the stuff so there were branded materials inside carousel of progress they wanted to have some different abilities they wanted to create a lot of different potential movements within the limbs of characters one of the considering Lincoln's fate that might have been viewed as being tasteless but they were working within the constraints of a very new technology now I mentioned that you get the feeling across they wanted to make so they had to figure out how can we fit all these components inside of human head when they're larger than what the space can that resonant frequency for whichever particular action it needed that specific metallic read would start to vibrate closed that space course you can't really compress water as it turns out so if you just put force behind water it will push against whatever constraints you have it in so uniont and enjoyable and all of these various exhibits that New York had different sponsors so Disney was partnering with other richer where you get to see the innovation of progress how systems have improved over time to make our lives more born I mean this was a an enormous use of technology very innovative use of technology at the time so that was the basics for the movement a carousel progress features multiple scenes of a family through different eras of human history including near he exhibited they were working on for the New York world's fair was the Carousel of progress which you can still see in certain Disney parks it and more components than could fit within the constraints of a human head and they weren't they didn't really have the option of scaling it up they couldn't build Lincoln have to move them especially not smoothly if you want to build a compressed air system that can move a significant amount of weight chances are you're going to end up with an Air Kevin you can't do that with just the digital system so they need to go with an analog system analog means that you can have a variable engineers were creating they wait a good amount of they had a good amount of wait till good amount of mass to them and you matic of bill pneumatic systems weren't strong in all right so you got the machine shop and they were creating the dancing man for the little man and Disney decided that he needed and it also meant that they wanted to create more gradations of movement they didn't want to just be on and off they just WanNa be opening closed or left so that people would say oh you know what I need to buy X. kind of refrigerator because I want my life to be as convenient as it was for those robots we just saw so limit it's not just on or off that's what digital is either the signals going or it's not variable means you can actually create variations and you do this through pige by changing the amount of voltage in a system and by increasing it or decreasing it you could create different ranges are some pretty powerful movements including stuff that strong enough to do something like lifting arm because the various pieces of machinery that Disney so in order to make this look convincing they wanted the human characters to have very lifelike motions for sophisticated systems that would allow for the sort of realistic motion and by pairing the Hydraulic Systems with this commotion within a properly designed system so that's what the imaginary started working on with both Lincoln and the Carousel of progress they wanted to create more exactly what you get with

separate little circuits and they all needed to be programmed into the audio animatronic reels which again were still code that they had to use varying tones on this magnetic tape and to do that they

Coaching Carousel and Coordinator Corner

"Around with the NFL podcast. Drinks look alike. Little. Today's day and age to especially inappropriate. Welcome to another addition of the around the NFL podcast. My name is Dan has this. I am joined at a room filled with heroes. Mark Cecil, Chris Wesseling and Greg Rosenthal. What is up you little Hayden? Now, we got a beep you out it's not so much drinking of that product. It's just the that you put a straw into small can little it's a little extra would see as they would say little it's little flourish slightly dainty. But I think you're going to see feels organization at Perrier one or whatever like even a smaller bottle in a scale of one hundred how orchestra is it to have a little tiny straw in your little are you need. Are you asking me if it's a manufacturer joke? I don't think it's that funny. Joe manufactured, Joe. I mean, it just seems like something that you care about the thought into ideal use paper shows now. Knowing. Gotcha. I'm looking plastic when right now Starbucks on that. But today's show forget about all that. That's cares about that. That's just what how I drink back. Topic? We have things to talk about the NFL keeps moving as we close in on the Super Bowl, it is less than a month away. And we're going to get to the next round of the playoffs the divisional round on tomorrow show, but today show our Wednesday show, we will be focusing on the coaches carousel. Because Greg was a little quiet, you know, entering the weekend of three Sunday. And then the last seventy two hours or so we are flying. It was almost as if all the agents in the executive said, let's set up there Wednesday podcast perfectly by dropping all that news right before it. Yes. So we as you know, they're eight job openings or their work. They are filling up fast and furious. In fact, I think there's just although some things you still have to cross the T's dot the contract. Only two three teams really Greg that we don't know who their head coach ABI. So we're getting there didn't close and Mark I thought it was to my off the bungles the dolphins of the jets a you're right. You're essentially not Bengals m. Mark, buddy. Forget about the Bengals you ready to get into start with your team. Let's do it. Because the Cleveland Browns just this morning. Made it official. They will promote Freddie kitchens. They like what they smell in that kitchens. And they say keep them around. They promote Freddie from offense coordinator to head coach. And because you can't as especially with the personality about you can't have Greg Williams ascend to head coach, and then do well and say all right now, you get to be an underling again, they say by Greg good bad day for the triple J's, Greg Greg Williams after all he did for the Browns in the second half of the season gets his walking papers. But it makes sense. But let's focus for now on Friday kitchens of our Excelsior because you would you were calling for this for weeks because you loved what he did once he took over for Todd Haley, so you're happy with this move aren't I mean, there's never really been since. And it's so depressing to go back to the mid to late eighties to find a relationship in Cleveland where the quarterback, and you know, when he went to kitchens was the play caller to now the head coach had a tight relationship with that was also creative and thriving. So that what bothered me was the idea. Breaking that up until this is a very interesting coaching. Search one of the more unusual ones in the league. Where everyone went in thinking. Oh, well, Jimmy has limits. Going to make everyone higher Adam gates because Peyton Manning is friend in his in his ear saying Adam is the great guy. Adam gates, never even gets an interview that it's it's obviously it'd be Mike McCarthy because the front office littered with all these Packers people and Mike McCarthy doesn't even get an interview they delayed that and they could have done that weeks ages ago. So kitchens at the Latins last seventy two hours got thrust into the role as very realistic candidate. And then at the end, this Kevin's defence case thing that blew up where they brought him in for a second interview. And there was as early this morning that the Browns doing the most Browns thing, there's an inhouse a battle based on analytics and more football meathead types, one of them wanting kitchens, one of them wanting Stansky, but in the end, you find that you reading that a lot of people were pushing for Freddie, kitchen starting with John Dorsey, obviously here. So I think they made the right choice, and they navigated str-. Range pool of candidates compared to other years general Jim Caldwell Dan Cambrian, Matt either flus I'm happy with. I don't understand. If you're looking at the whole thing is to find someone who can who shows a skill calling plays shows a Skillet maximizing players, Nick Chubb who had essentially no role before Hugh Jackson left and taking players like that. And of course, your quarterback insane. Let's make this offense as good as it can be. They showed vastly different capabilities after kitchens took over. Why would you break that up and hire another untested play caller or someone else? So there's run for me a home run. That's that's good to hear Mark. And you know, what it is? It's such a great unknown this process. This guy stills an unknown. Let's face it, y'all. He's forty four. He's never really had a responsibility anywhere close to this. So there is risk to it. You look at a guy like Jim Bob cooter who's out on his on his. But now I was gonna say cooter he's out on his. But right now he had his his data shine as offense coordinator. And then that wore off that's the fear that maybe this was more a quick little flash in the pan with kitchens. That's the fear though. But you can't coat. You can't make the decision based on fear. You had results which in most cases, people are hiring blind cliff Kingsbury, we're gonna get to there's that's a totally blind higher by the cardinals that may work out. It may blow up kitchens at least they had this knowledge that he worked while the Mayfield they were scoring points and they were functional offense. So I like to hire there's this cottage industry in the NFL thinktanks and consultants agents in the ear of NFL insiders pushing the right coaches or the ones that get the endorsements and I thought Joe banner former eagles and Browns president made. A good point. She see guys like, Freddie kitchens, and Matt Ibra flus, I would even extend this to Kevin's defence key who did impress the Browns and their interview guys who come from nowhere and can do the job. Well, like these guys aren't there is in the news. They're not being propped up for years as coaching candidates in. It makes you think who else is out there who position coach or who's lower on a coaching staff that can do a better job than some of these guys like been around for you like many people I went to Freddie, kitchens Wikipedia page over the last week 'cause I didn't really know much about him. The he was a quarterback at Alabama which a lot of college fans will know for four years, but he was the quarterbacks coach under Bruce Arians for four years. He was a position coach with the cardinals for a decade. It is tough to keep a job in the NFL on the same team for a decade through multiple different coaching administrations. And so the fact that he impressed all those different coaches to keep those jobs. He was tight ends coach and quarterbacks coach than running backs. Coach all with there is. China before he ended up coming with the Brown. It's not like he's a total overnight stories been in the NFL for eleven years. And I think Dan's point is perfect is that they do know him better than any of those other candidates, and he's a little different like the way talks. I like that his wife is named ginger. I like. I just see he has he cuts different profile than a lot of the head. She didn't which ins a little I don't even know Baker. Him Baker seem like a fun kind of like personality match to. They did talk about. There was so many different people reporting this that defense. King kitchens were so close that they were to incorporate Baker mayfield's take on this. And I wondered if that pushed it over the edge and back to Greg Williams. I find irony in the fact that Williams caught a lot of flack throughout the season for his hard knocks comment that he had seven job offers on the table when he went to the Browns. And it's funny because Greg Williams will absolutely in my mind be defensive coordinator somewhere. And there are like eight teams, you know, six eighteen looking for a DC right now. Probably who you might get seven offers. I don't know about that. He might get it. He might get it. He's gonna get offers. I don't think he hurt himself over the last two the opposite. I don't but he's a unique personality match who's NFL career would've absolutely ended. If not for Jeff Fisher who had such a close relationship with. And that's what the NFL's all about. I'd I'd have to go through the coordinator openings right now. And try to figure out a match because I don't think you'll have a lot of offers. He might get one. Right. Dan, seven just because personality wise, I don't know how many head coaches are going to feel comfortable bringing him up your percentage of it gets a job now. Because think I think there's a decent chance. I just I want. I would want to look at the teams and think about what about he gets seven jobs. I would put one on that. He gets seven offers. I won't do that. With you more making the point. He does have more of a market now than he does his his make believe market that he had before he got the Browns job in my opinion. But all right and. Yes. Kevin's defence a good day for the sixty percent. Jeez. Out there. We don't want him being the main Representative Ouch has the Vance key does after not getting the Browns job. He's the fulltime OC for the Vikings. So he sticks around they're moving on the Denver Broncos. They go in a different direction. They hire. Former bears defensive coordinator. As their new head coach. So in the air where everyone is looking for the next, Sean McVay. John Elway bucks that trend. He says I like the guy that's a good defensive play. Call caller get my defense back to where should be your thoughts. West on the Joel Indem. It doesn't really surprise me. The John Elway went defense in sort of win against the grain of what's popular in the NFL right now he went defense with his last higher. And it seems to me that he thinks Gary kubiak can just come out of the front office go right back to the sidelines takeover the offense, and they'll be fine. But this team is built on its defense. And I think John Elway knows that once continued to sort of feature the defenses the featured part of this this organization LA made this comment. He said I wanted one side of the ball to be dominant because it's rare that it's both. I think that that this is a movement towards getting back to running that defense the way that he wants it to be run. Well, and it doesn't make sense without kubiak but kubiak is the offensive coordinator. And. A huge higher. I mean, that's to me. That's partly why they hired Fonzie. Do we all have to say, they're totally up to your? I'm gonna go NGO because he he Vic Fangio who sixty years old. The sound is good. You got up. Yeah. He has as much respect. I think league-wide in just for the week tweet game plans that he's come up with dating back to his days in with the forty Niners. And now with the bears as just about any defensive play collar and league over the last decade. Have you put who's been the best coordinator of last decade on defense? He'd be in the top five for sure. And so you're combining that defensive mind with Gary kubiak who's up there in terms of offense of coordinators and certainly did a great job when he was with Denver. So as long as kubiak healthy. That's if I'm a Broncos fan, I feel pretty good about throw it over to coordinator corner. Mark spent a lot of time over there as well as we know Mark, Gary kubiak, good buddies. John Elway probably hung out in. The lobby of the used car lot many times just shooting the s any concerns if you're vivant GIO that a Super Bowl winning head coach is now your system, and he also happens to be best buds with your boss. I would be a little concerned because they're total. They're totally tight. And if there's issues there you may not win the push and pull, but I think on GIO did. I say big fines you alley. That's you. Well, I mean that had to be part and parcel for what might be his only shot to be a head guys are vet these guys have been in the NFL for thirty years. They probably know each other very well kubiak seems about as much as any head coach, I can think of as a relatively ego free eagle sky, not a Machiavellian, and I was surprised because like, okay, if your health it, why isn't he just become the head coach? And I and I did ask I heard I heard from the insider, they he really thought that there's a different health. In stress Biddle. Roles between coordinator and head coach that he essentially was asking can I be I wanna be a coordinator. Again, the Broncos were like, you can't leave. We want you to be our coordinator. But he did not want to be the head coach did not want to be considered because he thought that's too stressful. He's been through before what of the von interesting 'cause coordinators are an easy job. It's hard to in this whole thing. Apparently, he apparently that's what he wanted to do. And that's what Elway wanted to. Because it's like, he's not a young, man. That's gotta be harder than ninety nine point nine percent of jobs out. There said still apparently the word is that kubiak like you're saying doesn't wanna be head coach anymore, but Bruce Ariza to be a head coach anymore. You're go. I'm just saying he's fifty seven people change people their opinions. He gets back into the sport. He might get it. And what if he starts having conversations with LA me as a person if I if I was Vic vasbo a little bit nervous about another angle. Elway at him. Or so tight and short the money side for kubiak for doing less is probably very good. His friend is going to pay him. Very, well, I think that the older we get the right? The less Maquiavelian, right? Dan, more luck with able to get along with other people, and maybe one of those head coaches that would like have sources that buried the other coordinator through the media. I mean grad palace joke. Don't be up. To greg. This is a cutthroat business. And there's a lot of backbiting, and, you know, all the shop talk on behind the scenes, that's true backstabbing doesn't help that fund. You probably wants nothing to do with the offense on at all, right? I think they are all over fifty like fifty seven and up. I think they're not sweating that as much in hopefully, enjoying, you know, Jack near last in Freeman movie going on those are great. Let's spin the carousel and move on to another. Old man relatively compared to what we're seeing in the game Bruce area just brought up. Retired. So the body mind, although this NFL sideline business went to CBS when the booth didn't like that so much got an inch for the game ends up getting hired by the bucks who had to be Greg happy with how this landed for them because they still there conflicted, obviously about James Winston at this point. But if you want to get one more shot to see if the number one overall pick is gonna fly how about a guy that loves the downfield bombing attack. Bruce Arians, another proven tested guy, not bad it. It's a perfect match for Winston skill set. I mean, they showed I saw this graph. That showed what quarterbacks over the last six years have the highest area hards per attempt per season. And all the basically there were two players off the charts in those two players were Carson Palmer under Bruce Arians in James Winston throughout his career. And I think a guy like. Areas. Probably convinced them that he sees the good parts of Winston in in that he seems like a very football smart guy about ninety five percent of the time. And he makes some really crazy decisions. But he's still twenty four years old and has a ton of production. It's also a way for Jason light who worked with areas in Arizona to kind of this is his last chance I feel like they are on the hot seat right away. Because Jason light is on a hot see, and he's so tied to areas. He so tied to Winston that. Even though he's signed a four year contract. It feels like they need to produce quickly or else. This whole thing could get blown up in that is based on the track record of the bucks under the glazers. No one's change coaches over the last twelve years more than the bucks in the Browns. And they have not made the playoffs in eleven years. So I think the expectations are going to be but they should be high with areas and Todd Bowles defensive coordinator Byron left, which is a play collar and passing. That's a nice mix. Parents Todd Bowles and the bears are now they're coming after. So perhaps Todd Bowles has a decision to make and I'll say and we'll get back areas. But that's not an easy to sit bowls as a good relationship with areas. We know and they have some nice players Wes on that roster. Three tight the bears defensive coordinator job. That's good gig. But maybe the deal breaker Wes is that Reuss Aaron's is a late period Parcells year to year type coach at the stage of his life. Todd Bowles might have a ticket for the big chair if he can get that defense surging and then he gets shot. It's a tricky spot for bulls because he areas are tight, and I do think the bucks defense has more talent than commonly believed. But you could also be featured as the bears defensive coordinator, they can go on a Super Bowl run in Byron left, which could be kind of head coach and waiting to the way it worked really well way in which areas has built his coaching staffs. I think is one of the most. Regaining in the NFL. There are only two of thirty two coaches who are black and we're in an era where everybody wants to hire the bright young innovative mastermind on the offensive side of the ball. Offensive coordinators are ninety percent white quarterback coaches are just about one hundred percent white offense of line coaches are about ninety percent white. So how do you these guys get jobs? I think a guy like Bruce Arians has gone out of his way to hire minority coaches. He's thrust Harold Goodwin into the play calling role in preseason hired a female and Goodwin's joining him in Zona two and left. Now, he's he's allowing Byron left which take over the passing game. And I think this is going forward. I'd like to see more white coaches do stuff like this as an avenue toward getting some African Americans into these job. It's going to be a story once this scarce stop spinning we're going to be down to very few plaque coaches in the league. Where are we on that? Well, no, it's what west just said, exactly. There are a number where I is it down to is down to one the Bengals the some of the handlery. There has a chance to be the only team I think that has a higher the dolphins. Also, Brian Florence has been were captured to attach them pretty closely. So we are kinda waiting, but you're you're right. It's been a rough season for Africa coach that you mentioned. Exactly, it's the Sean McVay go find the next Sean McVay, and they'll in that pool of candidates is largely Caucasian in that. And that's let's talk about this more with click cliff Kingsbury if that's where we're going next. Yes. I think that's a big part of that with the cardinals. Clings cliff Kingsbury tough to say going to have to get used to the lease for one to three years cliff? Kingsbury who was the Texas Tech head coach didn't work out. He got canned takes a job as it. Use at USC hard things to say, and then finds out a bunch of teams are looking for the next Sean McVeigh wiggles out of the deal moves into an interview process meets with the cardinals the jets decides Arizona's where he was coach he is now the new head coach of the cardinals. Wes, what were you gonna say there's all this criticism that it's such a risky higher. It's not a safe move. Well, who safe John FOX, Jeff Fisher, right? Was Steve Wilk safe any lasted one year because he had a sub NFL offense. How about every if it's safe, right? How about every coach that just got fired where those were those safer. Not like if you're if you're an owner or a team president you're looking around the league in you see Doug Peterson with Carson Wentz. Nick, foles you see Frank Reich with. Andrew luck. You see Matt Nagy with Mitch Trubisky. You see Sean McVay with Jared Goff. All these guys got immensely better quickly. You also see those four guys offense of minds come in. And they get Phillips Vic Fangio GM shorts. They get some of the best defensive coordinators in the business because nobody's hiring defensive coordinators, head coaches. So there's a much bigger field. If you hire Steve Wilks he fires his offense coordinator halfway through the season you hire. Vance Joseph fires coordinator halfway through the season. Ma-? Patricia fires coordinator after one season. There's just a much better. If you're an owner you like why wouldn't hire the offense coordinator have my cake and eat it too. Because he's going to hire a great defense of coordinator people kill cliff Kingsbury four the college record. And none of us watched any of those games. Let's be honest. But they that was a team at Texas Tech that were the offense. What he's meant to be good at right was prolific in fantastic the defiant, they deep. It's the players didn't go to that team, essentially. And they were losing because of that side of the ball. I mean, he's good at what he's meant to be good at and they needed to do this for Josh Rosen who probably has PTSD coming off last season. One of the worst situations rookie quarterback could be in. So you're giving him a shot to be with someone who's creative and new and and let that relationship blend not a small thing. If you hire an offense of coach he's going to be there for a few years. You're not gonna be changing offensive coordinator the concern. I think with Kingsbury specifically though is his staff. So what kind of staff is he going to put together, Sean McVay had been in the NFL had connections. Even Matla floors been in the NFL. Maybe Kingsbury does put together a great staff. There's rumors he might hire the Texas State coaches offense coordinator, that's not as big a higher. We haven't heard about who he's gonna bring in. But he's he's causing a lot of excitement. I was pretty impressed that the Zona cardinals changed all their Twitter names to AirAsia cardinals with. K I mean that's buying in. That's branding. With just any other thoughts on the Zona job before we move on. Oh, he's I believe cliff is four years older than Larry FitzGerald. So another very young thirty nine and younger than I I have another. This is his agents. Great whoever he is. I mean, the second he lost his job at technical agent talk. Every maybe it's just maybe Kingsbury just great at work in the media agent corner. This shirt is that a place I know on the carousel the second. He was fired from Texas Tech. There were a number of media insiders said wouldn't be surprised if he got some OC head coaching any did they were absolutely right. Takes that USC job. And you have Monique meta in New York stumping saying we need this guy. You're hearing rumors. The patriots might hire. Kingsbury? If Vick Daniels leaves that's definitely coming from an age. I mean place and that there's just this huge groundswell. Like everyone wants this guy. Maybe he really deserves all the all the attention. But he he's getting represented well final on AirAsia all of those offense of coaches, I mentioned who turned around the program immediately. They got a lot of help from the GM in the first year on the job less need rebuilt. The Rams pace rebuilt. The bears. Roseman is one of the best GM's in the league in Chris Ballard did it with the Colt. So the cardinals need to go out and aggressively rebuild a barren roster. It's a great division. Just NFC west games are going to be fun between Shanahan McVeigh in Kingsbury. And then you have p care on the Seahawks are kinda like the little guy that's different to come. I like agent corner would be more like a leafy suburb. Right. I would think so making a ton of earn warzone not not Tony like beautiful properties with Leslie landscape front yards tennis clubs shampoo, glasses clinking background somewhere like show. Oh, Orange County with what would trophy? Why vineyard, you know, somewhere port beach from there. Yes. Certain parts of Santa Monica. I would say certainly, yes. And I would also say a lot of buzz after these hires at the NFC west has some of the best looking coaches in the game in terms of collection. Don't sleep on Carol Deb heads, my mom has been all in a Pete Carroll since ninety four and he he is aged like fine wine that man so just because peak oldest of the coach is now in the NFC west. Everyone's goo goo for the McVeigh and cliff Kingsbury is in great shape peak, Carol if you way, like older age age and looks Carol wins that in a landslide. Let's see McVeigh looks like thirty years from now cut that out a mobster is the eight not good luck. Being that good looking that sixties that are I g stories social team stand out is done. Jan knows what I'm talking about for the right reasons with the black tux dot com. Do the black tux offers the kind of suits tuxedos styles that would normally be wildly expensive to buy. And you might only wear Once West. I noticed have any analysis on that topic you'll free on the what to wear to a wedding topic. No, no about the hot coaches. Oh, I don't really track them. Like, you doesn't care about that stuff about the pigskin. It's surprises me to hear that PK good-looking. Just it's not in my energy is incredible. To to analyze that. I just I'm not good at it. Okay. With the black tux. Simply read them lines blow it out your big k takers, the next level. He's being honest. I have no idea if Carol's good-looking, that's I'm surprised to hear that.

Let spin the Carro sell once more. How do you spell carousel? Mark. See a are very. It's a tricky. Matt flair has a job. And it's a good one. The Packers agree to a four year contract with the Tennessee titans. Offense coordinator, he replaces Mike McCarthy. Stolen, the Margaret we're gonna get him and a little bit. It's a four year contract Greg with a fifth year team option. Pertemps Pella Cerro. The flare. The Fleur is a man who had a deal with a quarterback that was never healthy last year in Tennessee. But the offense got better special in Derrick Henry started having a bigger role you like this higher for Green Bay? I like that Aaron Rodgers with the different offensive head coach could have been literally anyone the vagrant. No. Because if it was Bruce Arians, I have a track record where I would kind of, you know, have a stronger opinion. I don't feel like leflore in his one year in Tennessee. I'm going to praise him or kill them too much. Has certainly guy that's respected around the league. He impressed the Packers in this interview. They didn't even do a second interview. Despite a pretty wide group of interesting candidates that the interviewed in Green Bay. And I love that. He it sounds like we don't know for sure. But it sounds like he's keeping Mike and most if not all of the defensive snowed moves, I think is a huge part of the equation. Yeah. I'm just excited to see what he does. I mean shows how quickly things can change in the NFL that he essentially lost his job as a quarterbacks coach with the falcons two years ago. He wanted to stay there. Mcvay ended up kind of giving them a lifeline. They worked together in Washington goes be the coordinator there and here he is now as head coach at one of the best most storied franchises league with the best quarterback in the league. He's a mystery. And we'll find out how much he's absorbed from being next to some of the greatest minds on offense in the last couple of decades. Sean McVay he was with him in Los Angeles. But McVeigh was engulfs ear before the whistle. And when the defense had the ball McVeigh was running the offense. So for how much was lower doing there. He's with Kyle Shanahan. When Matt Ryan was an MVP and the falcons went to the Super Bowl. And like you said he wasn't even brought back as quarterbacks coach how much after Shanahan, right? But it could be fair. He wasn't calling the play Shanahan was. And then he gets Tennessee. His starting quarterback has an injury that affects the way he throws the ball and his backup plays in quite a few games. And yet in three or four games with the titans. This year, my notes were this coaching staff is coaching. It's azoff with very little talent. So I'm intrigued by I just don't know quite who met leflore. He was put at a tough situation. Obviously with Marcus mariota shoulder dealing with Blaine gabbert half the season. My one thing with this job. Specifically, you could argue in many have that it's the best opening and the presence of Aaron Rodgers gives you a chance for immediate success. But the last two season show us that the Packers have issues beyond Aaron Rodgers. And there is this notion. That's you fix the Mike McCarthy. Part of it the next coach should just take Green Bay right back to where we thought they were this NFC title game and the Super Bowl and finally deliver on Aaron Rodgers potential. It's like there's a lot of pressure. And I don't think this is a Super Bowl team right now. I think there's talent though, I think there's more talent than maybe any of the other vacancies it certainly up there. I think patent needs to do a better job. I mean they had a ton of entered and injuries. But ultimately, the defense wasn't any better than it was under Dom Capers. I feel like the football senti will stop making a sumptious about the Packers. After the last two years. I think there will be an assumption going to next year. Oh, they'll be definitely in the mix of the Super Bowl because I think they've now proven think they worked at I will wait and say that every year, but I'm just saying I think that there's I mean that offense. Let's be honest. I mean, there's this twelve teams that are twelve fifteen teams before the have shan't, and if you have Aaron Rodgers and some talent and they've got a chance being a favourite. Yeah. But. I don't know if they should it would be wrong to install them as favourite automatic. The what we saw the good division, and they need to improve around Aaron Rodgers from a personnel standpoint. One thing that we saw in the last probably half decade of Mike McCarthy was an inability to find a consistent running game. And it was just like we're gonna put all this on Aaron Rodgers. Well, Matt leflore comes from that rollout. Offense where everything's based on booed action and play action. Those are the guys he knows in. Then you saw him midway through the year and Tennessee put the offense on Derrick Henry when he needed to. And I think you're gonna see a lot more Aaron Jones and Green Bay one final note every time. Greg speaks in our studio here on the door is pasted a hate. Head. It's happening to me. I am having the worst podcast experience. I have ever had because I keep thinking that there's a a him body through the door at us judging us, I mean, I didn't get it up. Wow, crumbling it in my face. Dan got up. It is a little every time. I turn to my right to set Greg up or have a conversation. There was a disembodied Jared Goff. Right. And that had to go so three men in a baby scenario with other human in the picture that was deep callback. But I got the ref and I liked it this nice, pop culture. This leflore higher is reminder, Mike Shanahan's one of the most influential coaches of the last thirty forty years offensively. There's there's no doubt about it. In the fact that he had Kyle McVay and leflore altogether. And just the the schemes and the offense is that he would come up with on a weekly basis. Bill Belgian always said he thought it was a toughest play collar and coordinator to go against e- wasn't necessarily the greatest running entire team and being a general manager, but he is one of the greats. There will be a black sheep in the sponge. They're not all going to serve the. But I mean that he his influence in his offense of style. I think time has borne out how influential it is. All right. All right. So those are the five teams that have a new head coach in place. Let's spend through quickly of three teams that are not. Connected to a head coach at this point. We'll start with the jets because Mike McCarthy's the former coach of the Packers. And we saw it might have been what we refer internally as agent porn. But it came out yesterday. Never heard anyone. What as important Asian porno agent agent porn? I've never heard anyone say that what you said we refer to that internally as agent porn. I texted that yester-. I okay. But that was about cliff Kingsbury. Yeah. Did you notice how I noticed that you techs? Greg clearly scanned over whatever you on learning that Greg did respond. But I think ragweed just like I'm going to respond just during the I don't know if you know me yet. But all my memory lasts about forty five minutes after that is that by the way, is there a reason why the memory maybe is their short term. I don't think I don't think that is fair question. I think that's a fair question. It's been like that my whole life. My mouth is outside. I just try to like tributed. Here's what here's what matters to me is my relationships and the moment around me, and I'd have nothing left in my brain or anything else. That's a man living in the presence. Mark a quick a quick explanation. Before I get into. What is agent porn? Not Asian porn agent porn in this case. It was Kingsbury the general what is what is it to you to me? What is agent what I sent to? You guys was a text where are a tweet where a certain candidate in this case clippings was raised up to such heightened levels. And the words used were. So flowery about never one NFL game that I thought that there was a servicing of someone's agent going on in that porn. We see the record show. I responded I to you did. But then disappeared like a goldfish just forgot the phrase. I forgot the phrase anyway ESPN reported on Tuesday night that Mike McCarthy, isn't pursuing any other head coaching job. Then the jets opening which just seemed to me like a nice little neat. Repositioning for Mike McCarthy people to remind the jets. Hey, we love you baby. And also. Well, we don't even want any other job, even though Mike McCarthy didn't seem to have a lot of interviews line. The other jobs are taking except for the Bengals who he was not involved. It makes the the messaging makes Mike McCarthy look like a completely focused individual who knows what he wants and give it to him. But the reality is a little different could be dead wrong about this. But this has been one of the most easy to see through plans as far as getting somebody hired tell everyone that you don't really need a job. And you might sit out two thousand nineteen and revisit the coaching thing in two thousand twenty. That's your story that you're telling everyone for a week. And then when you look like you're gonna last one at the dance, you don't have anyone out there and dance with okay? We really only want the jets tug jets job 'cause that's really five of them are gone. Now, we might not get any other one. They're looking at some interesting aimed Baylor's coach Matt rule. Right. Definitely in the mix. According to rich Meany of ESPN, New York, and seems to be the name that might be sit and a little buzz here. That's a Daniel Jeremiah's favourite. Candidate. He's there are a lot of college people that would put Matt rule ahead of cliff. Kingston's got very pop in that people inside the game seemed to respect them a young guys from New York. He has a little bit of NFL experience and has done a nice job. Bruce Arians, a former temple coach. There you go, and I have a Baylor tie through my wife, and my father-in-law Bonnie's is way into the Baylor bears and under rule they have transitioned from the the wide open spread attack of RG three and Bryce petty to approach tile tax. He has the type of knowledge of the game that would transfer to the NFL we'll see with that guy. Also be enemy the chiefs offense coordinator in play with the jets. So we'll see that I feel that something's coming very soon with the jets. What about the dolphins? What are you hearing about the dolphins? Well, there hasn't been much. There's there's still some lingering buzz whether the dolphins would try to present the ravens with an offer. They couldn't refuse in. Yards to John Harbaugh profootballtalk as written a lot about that other than that the name in Miami that they think is the strongest is Brian Flores who is not the patriots defensive coordinator. But essentially has those responsibilities for them been a linebacker coach for them has a really interesting backstory and just seems to be, you know, when owners talk about like, we want a leader, man. He seems like one of those guys definitely connects with with his players, and he might he might be the guy that everyone. I mean, I guess stated that you wanna leader of men well as opposed there's different styles of that. I think though like Bill Belichick is not someone. You would you would say that's not the first thing that you bring up you bring up his game plans. You know, same with Kingsbury perhaps guys love Bill check. Yeah. Right. But you know, what? I mean. I know what you're saying requisite. That's what people miss about McVeigh that he's really good at that part of the job. And it's not just that he's mastermind on offense. And I think it's. The priority. You put on it. I don't think that Kingsbury is being hired because he's a leader of men. I think it's because of his work with quarterbacks. I think whoever takes this job though. I mean, this is a team that's in these own of almost tear it down to rebuild, and it's not going to be an easy path and the other name that comes up as Christmas chard who also his players. Byron Jones talked about Kris shard of the Cowboys is destined for greatness. Jalen Smith said that right away sense. I mean, socially different. So I guess both both good candidates. But this is not an easy team to take over right now. And it starts at the tower seems like a really intriguing candidate. But man, Stephen Ross cannot get out of this AFC east thing where he's kinda just endlessly taking people off the parcels tree and tanenbaum. And I don't know if I'm the dolphin. If I'm a doll fo and like getting it just seems like more of the same. But he also who knows might be the next great young coach, Wes, why does it feel like from the outside not tracking too closely that the Bengals are the only team that aren't. Even searching for a head coach. Well, sometimes forget people forget that their franchise. I think that's part of it. And the way they run things. I mean, they haven't exactly been in the news, you know, hunting it seems. But I'm sure there's something going on there slow to make maneuvers in generally in general. No huge. I guess there is a rush 'cause Marvin Lewis wasn't the first Cincinnati coach to stay a lot longer than most people expected. They are slow to make moves on all fronts. Well, they seem like they're lined up. Vance Joseph seems like their guy almost at this point. Which is I don't how you sell that to a fan base. There interviews have been in house Bill laser Darrin Simmons special teams corner and Hugh Jackson got interview, right, but to their credit if you want to criticize they are taking a really wide berth here they interviewed Eric enemy the interviewed Shane Waldron. Zack Taylor that Taylor. They interviewed Todd monkey. I mean, I think they've had eight or nine those are those are offense of mine's the two guys from the Rams Taylor Waldron. And then monk in those are some of the. Digging offense of mines. And like you said Hugh Jackson Vance Joseph defensive guy they've interviewed some this can't be a team where there's any referendum. You know, you're going to stick with Andy Dalton for seasons. One through how many more there has to be an open minded approach to quarterbacks. Vance Joseph has at least from what Ian and the different insiders if you had to guess Vance Joseph might be the leader in the clubhouse you sell that's up to guess what? Mike Brown's what do you tell that to Bengals fan knows all credit before it happened? I don't trust any reporting about what's going on. Right. And no one no one knows one more trip to coordinator corner, Mark Cecil, and I hope you're safe Josh mcdaniels is staying put with the patriots. His word is his bond. It's solid is. Okay. So absolutely. He's staying there, isn't he? Yes. I always felt that in that. It was the Packers or not. I don't think that he would have. Trusted, the situation. Cleveland there were there were whispers about that that there was some mutual interest. But you're at felt like hackers in. Why not stay New England? You'll still be a name next hiring cycle whether you should or not. I mean, you have a pretty good job art. You know, I do I can't hear you guys over the din feels dangerous. You have a pretty good job. I feel like you should move out of this neighbor at this. You know, when you when you were reported the deals with certain neighborhoods, you become ingrained interwoven with that with that community and represent the street. They trust me. And I trust them. I get Dirk cutter going back to the falcons also Mark okay with that. Or is that, you know, Mike malarkey gone there to what's going on. When he ran their offense from two thousand twelve to two thousand fourteen two of those years they finished seventh and eighth. I think the thing this this for me tracks back to one thing. And I think there must be a trusted, and you know, one wanted relationship with Matt Ryan that goes both ways. I don't know why you do it. Otherwise, it's not the most inspiring high. Based on what we think of cutter in general, but his offense and Tampa Bay was not the issue. It's fine. I have a lot to say. But I want to save it for of coming fresh off the wire video were taping after laud cast. That's about malarkey and cutter returning, and you can find that NFL dot com slash video slash around the NFL, I want the if you watch watch you'll be the first people to ever watch these videos to check it out. It's like, here's the good news fans of our show. We're going to give you more and more content. The bad news, we're gonna make it harder and harder for you to find. If you want to it's like a egg hunt. If you wanna hear west trench and takes on the week seventeen players of the week, go check it out. There you go before we leave. I did send out a mailbag prompt from the around the NFL Twitter handle. Start with you on this one Mark now that the brand this from Ryan he'll now that the Brown's got their head coach who would Mark like to see the DC an older former head coach Alloway Phillips or a younger DC candidate. Bill belichick. These taken Bill Parcells he's old and retired. Nobody really jumps to be honest. Like, I would want someone that's not going to, you know, get I I want someone who's not gonna fight with the with with kitchens and the rest, you don't have a pipeline to all the best linebackers. Coach is in the NFL. I just seems like they, you know, you're safe say hepker Johnson like oh, good. Good idea. There's some share DNA there. Remember kitchens worked under Bill Parcells west could be parcels this from Kayla Kalem, Leslie, which one of the hires. Do you think has the biggest chance of backfiring? Do you think there's a real chance any of them are out of job again in twelve months? I think honestly that the Bruce Arians higher has the best chance of backfiring. Because because of his health issues, and if he if something happens, and then you have an inexperienced coaching staff behind him. I think that's how you end up with three and third, and he he said in his first comments the whole thing. The whole franchise will be built around James one. That's the other cat you're counting on that to work. That makes also James Winston one of the biggest winners of the off season. But it also means if he continues to be the guy he's been for the last four years, you're right back where you started right? Good job. Good mailbag. Do one more one more. I mean to feels a little light. Mailbag? And I thought you keep these no it's like a male back, right? Unless I thought you guys are going to just go back and forth. I mean, I'm thinking like someone heavy bag of mail like west used to. Oh, you assaulted come up with. It's more of though that would be like a good job. I was my answer as well. Yeah. All right. Vampire little bit. Mark. Let me find one more, Greg. How you doing over there? Hello, my baby. Hello. Madonna floor is French for the flower. Math. We've never podcast before. Really, this is this is cut territory. There may be you know, post show yarder who is handle be author PR. Piatra? He is not Peter at is survived. Oh and sixteen with Jim Bob cooter out in Detroit who's likely to replace him. Jed clampett, John boy, Walton Bo Duke or a member of the country there champ. Got less got good. That was. Yeah. I was like jed clampett. Petrie has got some chops last question real question. Greg Todd rice asks what does the hiring Bruce Arians mean for the quarterback situation? Tampa Bay better you feel better about James Watson. There's a long-term doubt. No doubt the way the airlines talked about it on Wednesday. Is that they're they're all in with James Winston, if you if you believe in Jameis Winston like I do that. He's still has a chance to be still believe good starter. He saw it that he can be better that he can be either solid. It's fair. It's also the GM picked and the GM is still around a referendum to keep using Jameis Winston who's had more turnovers than anyone in the league since he's been drafted. It all makes sense. But he also is accomplished a lot of a four year ends rookie contract. There's been a lot worse. Put it that way. All right. There you go. Thank you. Everybody sent in questions. We will be back tomorrow with our divisional round playoff preview. Now, I said wild card weekend is one of the best weekends of the year and the NFL. The best weekend is divisional playoff weekend. Because you got every game is featuring heavy hitters, especially with that tomato can pats game. No longer an issue. Like it's been in past years. We got a real game up in Foxborough and everywhere else that professional football is played on Saturday and Sunday. How about that? I agree with everything he said best divisional round since we've been doing the show. I'd I'd argue I study the past. Let's see how the results. Well, there's always been a couple like this game is going to be an epic blow at oh, Tim t-boz playing the patriots. This is not going to go. Well, forgot about that one. Yeah. No. This everything seems like it will lead to great football. Which will mean, we're gonna see a bunch of horrible blowouts. We'd just jinxed. What will be there in person for Rams cowboy Saturday night? And then we'll be taping. Our our recap show as normal Sunday afternoon. Very exciting. Okay. This is Dan heads of signing off for quiet storm the mailman the old, boss. The great Ricky Hollywood behind the glass. She's nervous real nervous. Bill thursday.

Four of it's quite a living now. You know that this is about my conversations with friends in high places, but I'm going to push the envelope and include kind of family well. Mark Blood is my stepbrother. Any also happens to be a grammy nominee, the winner of an ASC award of a Lifetime Achievement award a bunch of Cleo awards and he's an author to so he definitely qualifies as a friend in high places even if he is sort of blood. Mark Gladys I mentioned earlier is a composer and these in author and mark. You've been around the music business a long time, and in when I first saw you on our little squad cast platform here I get to see you. You are in bed. Is markets like you know three in the afternoon that we're recording this new? Said I said. We use editions hours. We don't go to bed until usually two four. It really depends. Yeah, and we do it. We do it no matter where we are no matter what time zone we're in. China, Africa, we don't get until. Late you gotta keep up the perception of like being cool musician, which you are, I'm not as cool as my wife, but yes, we try to keep it up. My wife is a producer Jerry lucky my wife and she's a music producer, so it works it works. Yeah, and she's sleeping now, so we couldn't get her. About her I just WanNa talk about. Your Life when I met you like, we said you had hair. At a mustache I look I. Look like a porn star. But I had to look I. That was that was in the eighties man. So, what were you doing? And of course you were grown up when I met. You didn't know you as you were. Learning music and. Thanks. So how did music commit to your? Life Whale. Adapt played the clarinet in when I was five years old. He gave me one of those little recorders. And I loved it and I played clarinet in band growing up, and then when I was around ten, my grandfather took me to see the music man on Broadway starring Albert. And I was like wow I want to write music. I think I can do it around eleven I started writing songs and taught myself how to play the guitar. And then. The House of the rising sun came on the radio I think I was thirteen and I have a neighbor who I'm still in touch with his name Steve, Marcus. Records at sixteen, he played a saxophone in a band, and so he came over. We had a little piano and he showed me how to play house of the rising sun. And I learned it in every key by the time I was. The summer was over three or four months I could play the piano because I learned the house thriving on every single key. The Piano was my friend. I was familiar with it and that in my senior year in high school. I played in a band called floozy. At that time, we would make tapes. There were reel to reel tape recorders and we would make tapes. And I would take the train from Mount Kisco. INTO MANHATTAN WITH TONS OF DIMES IN MY POCKET They had something called the yellow pages. In Grand Central Station, they had these very nice phone booths and I looked up music publishers. So, it was like around twelve. For Mount Kisco New, York. I was eighteen seventeen I didn't know anybody in the business. I know your dad was before Dave. who was in radio and I would start calling these publishers and I'd say hi. I'm walk, Blat. I have these songs we. She liked to listen to them and let's say I call ten right. One person would say okay I'm in Grand Central Station I have tapes. And are going to see a publisher, right? This happened many many times at that time. I think they were thinking always eighteen year old kid everything carole King Neil. Sadaqa whatever who knows I. Come in and I this this happened I'd say at least six times that I can remember. I'm just sitting there in this published offices. Let me hear the songs kid. You know because that's how they talked back. Then let me add ONS kid. She'll be what you got, so then I would. I would give him my tape right. He put it on and one minute into the song he'd go this. I said well. There's this four songs here you know. Go to the next song minute into goes. Oh my God. Or third one four. Thing right. So I'd be like Oh my God here I am in new. York I better think of something. Oh, well, Sir! Can you play me something that you like? Last night I was thinking like. and. They would play me stuff that they'd like. And then I say the guy. I'M GONNA. Come back in three months and hopefully you know I'll have something for you. You know so three months combined. I go in again. Listen to any goes. goes the whole minute goes. It sucks, but but there are three or four seconds here that really good. Oh, that's great I went from zero to four seconds. I did this until I was twenty eight by the time. I go into publishing company, and they go sounds like a hit everything I go out like it. You WanNa. Deal, you know. I've been so persistent I was like. Because every time I saw them, they go. Oh, you're up from four seconds now. It's ten threat now. Okay, so. Twenty Four. Up to like ninety seconds. I'm like good rate. You know, so. I moved to New York when I was twenty three. I got a job as a superintendent of a let's call it a slum. Okay down the lower east side I would work from eight to. Twelve every day as a super I'd mop the floors. Take the garbage out and then from twelve to five. I went a little studio. I went in and I wrote songs. And then from five to six, I made Kohl's and then at night I played in disco band when I had free time and enough money I would go into the studio and record I was riding with. This guy met at a party. Named Larry God leap. and Larry Gottlieb was just the sweetest guy. And he since is a grammy winner, he wrote believe me baby I lied for Tricia Earwood and we were nominated for grammys. We wrote a song that was a number one record gonNA call when she was my girl. Yes, I picked a good one when we were twenty five. Actually Clive Davis, who is? A record mogul heath. Bruce Springsteen Janice Joplin. He heard our music and he offered us a publishing deal. and Larry was independently wealthy, somehow from his bar. Mitzvah money and I don't want to sign a deal. I'm like Oh man you know. Maybe we should sign a deal. He Goes Nah. Let him give him four songs right so given four songs. And, you don't have to keep working right. He didn't have to work a three years later. a friend of ours name Allen Tepper. Working for MCI music and he said I'd like to sign you guys, so we signed to MCA music within two years. We had this. Record number one when she was. Michael's was all over. The place is great walking around the city. which is you know what's weird because at the same times? With Accordion Song of ours and I was so excited that Stevie Nicks doing our song I just completely forgot about the other thing anyway. She stopped recording our song. This came out. It was a big hit. Now have to tell you one of the great experiences of my life, and I'm passing along. Okay so I'm thirty years old. Now have a number one record I'm not really grasping. The significance of it! Because I I didn't get like all of a sudden somebody. Say here's fifty thousand dollars. It was like I was making three hundred a week. As a composer that was in advance and I was still making three hundred a week when it was on the radio. It's number one right. I get a call from the president of MCI. Music Guy name the guy's name is Jay Morgenstern. Okay, he's a big deal in the business. And I used to date his daughter free when I was a teenager. So our sky! I know this guy called J. Right? So he calls me up, so this is. This is something for everybody because this is, this is a real seminal moment for me so I go up to the it's on Sixth Avenue and in Manhattan. We're all these like. Near CBS, just all these big buildings very corporate stuff i. go into the lobby. You know and I'm sitting there. Really nervous and his his Jay will see you now right? Go Walk through the corridors. Being big big office so I walk in. The carpeting is absolutely white like Pristine White, and he sitting at the other end on his big Mahogany Desk. The Sun is streaming through the windows, and he says Butch Chick this good to see you. I'm so proud of you. I'm like thank you. Jay is so kind of you I couldn't have done it without you. So he says to me. Would you like something to drink? Okay? I'm going to have the girl come in. She's going to bring you spelt sound. Really Okay so this. Young lady comes in with a tray and glass, and she hands me the glass, and I go to grab the perrier bottle and Jay's no, no, no, no, no, no, she'll pour it for you like really. What. I'm on the so find definitely lower than he is and I'm drink perrier out of this glass with ice. To me. Mark was so proud of you. You know because young. Let me ask you a question mark six months ago six months ago. What were you doing? I was writing songs Jay. Right, but nobody ever heard you right, you never get right. You were a nobody you in idiot. I'm like we're going I. Go. Yeah, yeah J. I, wasn't it? He goes now. You got a number one record. And what you're a genius, you're genius. I. Thank you Jay. and. He goes well. Guess what I'm six months when that records not here anymore, guess what? What J. Goes. You're going to be any. So what I got out of that was that I would just gonNA. Skip being a genius part. Because I was always bound to be an idiot right so no matter what happened to me, no matter how successful I. I was just going to be an idiot. And? It really works. It really works for me because. You know the more the more successful you become, the more opportunity I haven't people you know they. They know. I did certain stuff and. Such a nice boy. Are you. And, so the way I approach, your job is how I approached everything you know like what are you want? Okay I'll send you something you like it. You don't like it. I'll do it again. You know you're the customer. And I say that is a key part of my success. The point of this is that when you're successful. The moment you're successful. It doesn't matter because you're not going to continue to remain successful. So there's no point in getting really you'd like. I'm a big guy. You know I'm the MAC daddy because it's not gonNA last, so a lot of people they get successful, and they become era or something like that right, and that doesn't help their career. The way to to move forward always is with great humility. And so that would what that man taught me. That day was when he said in six months. You're going to be an idiot, and that's basically how I approached everything after that I never let. A Grammy nomination are I, got this award for best country music. Thank God. A lifetime achievement award writing moves across America I got a lot of Clios and stuff like that the best music advertising and all the time just like. Thank you and keep going and go back and do what you do exactly because that's exactly what you have to do and. Most people don't do that. But what I found is like I've produced Kenny Rogers. I produced a lot of really big stars. Yoyo Ma. They're all the same they're. Oh, they're all like that like you think you're with Kenny Rogers he's richest man Hollywood. He's going to be an asshole. Instead, he's like what can I do for you? Is that right. Let's hear it again, so they're quite deferential I-. I mentor kids, and why tell the kids is that these guys understand their place in the social matrix I think two things that make people successful from what I see. One. Is Lack of EGO. There, like. It's about the work. Whatever you think I'll do it again. No problem yet and then the other thing is understanding your place in the social Matrix meaning like. I'm just the writer here. Right. The that's who I'm working for. That's my client I'm not the guy who calls the shots. They call the shots well. Yes, and that's on your commercially. Created things, but were you create? Your heart your soul, your your boss right, and and I've been looking at my life retrospectively by nineteen, eighty-six had two top ten records Cap Award for best country song. a grammy nomination for best rb. Song and several advertising. Awards for Best Music in advertising was thirty five amazing and I was absolutely amazing. And I also wrote hands across America, which was A. Through Kenny Rogers and Lionel Richie with. I guess you would call it a commercial success those things. That I had honestly never written anything that I was very. Happy, with personally that I felt resonated with my soul, you know. And, I've been working with this guy named Joseph. He's from. The hollers in in in West Virginia. Some guy heard him play in a bar from Columbia records. When he was eighteen and offered him a deal, a record deal on Columbia records and as happens in the record business, only three percent. Of the artists on any label generate income for that label. So that means that. If you're an artist, you get you get a record deal. You have a ninety seven percent chance of failing. It's about the same odd as having a podcast with more than thousand downloads per episode by the way right right, but you know you never know. That guy just got paid. One hundred million dollars Joe Rogan or something like that the in this episode by the way, is GonNa? Put me on the map man. That's it exactly. Exactly you gotta think like that. Come to New York to live right, but he's a hillbilly is really like you know like Jed Clampett and he does a Miller beer commercial Miller's. The American Way and he makes thousands of dollars and he becomes the number. One Guy in demand in New York City and he's got all this stuff on the air. And he's making. A ton of money, he has his own personal banker chase at nine, hundred, eighty, six Kenny. Rogers called. Because he wanted a song for hands across America and at the time I was writing. This is not your father. Souls view. Yeah, yeah, that was good and I was not into into the concept of star singing songs. To for charity I really objected to that I thought of it as self aggrandizement I. Tell Kenny. That wasn't crazy about the. We are the world as a nice thing. But you know it really is it's it's kind of self promotion by people who don't really need the money. Why don't they just give the money? I mean that's how I felt about it. So what changed your mind? Case I was on the phone with Kenny. Rogers and Ken K.. Craig can cravings for together. We are the world. And I said. Why don't you get those guys who are the world and sang all all those stars are great writers. Said we tried them. He goes. Yeah, you know. We gave them copy points, and they just go about writing their songs because artists. They just like they missed all our copy points right mark. We used to do us a favor. I was like really okay. For Kenny of course, yeah, I re- penny I wrote the pride bath for price. Which is Chrysler theme song? which was a singles for Kenny Rogers. And And after that I wrote several songs for him. and. You know we were in touch, right? So I wrote hands across America with Larry Gottlieb and John Carter and he's also reap carney. STAR PAYS Stat Oh man. My wife Jean grew up with John and I was writing hands across America and I was stuck for lyrics in guys genius. He came up with this line. This sky so serene has felt the kiss of countless streams. Of John Okay. So road it. We send it to Kenny and Kenny. Call Me Back I. played it for Lionel Richie Lionel said the only thing wrong with this song is nothing's wrong with the song. I said okay, so my experience of getting my songs recorded in general is that they don't come out the way that I hear them. They may become hits, but that's not how I really heard them so I really want this song to. To be I heard it I said well I can let it go and and. And you can get whoever you want to sing it, but nobody sang it as well as Joe. Saraceno so quarter Joe in Sandy Farina another great singer, so that became the theme song. Those were the artists who did it, but. After that I felt like. I hadn't written. A single song that resonated with me the way house of the rising Sun Mr Tambourine man. Take it easy any early. You're early. Dylan songs a Joni Mitchell. Did, so. I I know Joe had the same sensibilities I did, and I said you want to write. Songs that are meaningful to us. When we're just GONNA go and do this out of love. And we spent four hours every Monday and we did this for four years the end of two years we came up with a song called healing. Hand which you know. Yes. I do I love Tom. Came up with that song I felt the burden. And we did this project and we get into the studio and recorded it a lot of very successful studio. Musicians were on it, and so I felt after that I felt I felt artistically redeemed, and I continued work on this project I. Consider it my legacy. and. Finished up five songs with JOE AND WE'RE GONNA get a mastered, and I will put him out and whatever happens happens, but it's You know it's. It's something that that that I was able to do because I had the good fortune of. Of having enough success to just go ahead and afford to do. That the people who are most successful. Are the ones who are able to just go full steam ahead and show up on the job. Do Percents. They tend to exceed expectations like. I've been in a studio with say. Kenny Rogers or Michael Bolton or some they just they just kill it. Just you know they show up on time. They do one hundred ten percent. I think that's what's required. So you know as you know, you'll come across a lot of people with talent, but very few people have the ability to sustain or have a comportment to. To turn it into a career. Whatever whatever reason? Mark! You didn't interview with NPR a few years back in, and you talked a lot about your book. Humpty dumpty was pushed. Really really cool novel and in that. You actually had said that you'd stopped writing music. After nine eleven. What happened that got you back into? Into music again after nine eleven I wrote one song called hole in the sky. And that was that was put out on three separate albums that was covered by three different people. What happened is the song came out on an album that was made by advertising creatives, and then the police and firemen had their own album of guys who worked in, were firemen and policemen who wrote songs, but they like this song and they put it. It out on your album I felt really honored by that hole in the sky, but gene and I did a lot of volunteer work. We live near the The police headquarters on Twenty Twenty First Street and I just lost my enthusiasm for for for writing and I just felt like there were other things that I could be doing. I think. The the suddenness, which nine eleven happened made a lot of people in New York reevaluate. Their lives. And time sort of superseded money was like do I. Want to keep working and make money, or do I want to take this time and have experience? So we stopped working and we traveled around the world for four years. Ended up in Nicaragua, Yeah Yeah We. We were round up, Nicaragua, and the way that Humpty came about is. I was reading these crazy crazy travelogues. You probably got some. Anyway. We were in New York at a time during those four years and my cousin cal this an author. He is a pen faulkner award winner. These great author and his wife is a Pulitzer Prize winner. Marriage Inga Safran right, so we're sitting around. It's it's pesach you know. And the guy says direct pass Passover, and he says to me mark. He says I love your travel. I gotTA write a book. Came Cal. He reviews for the Times as well as like really. An Inga said Yeah Mark, you just got to write a book. So I spent five years, and I wrote a Humpty dumpty was pushed, which was based on experience. We had in the nineties. We were making so much money. We really know what to do. And some high. It was really great, right? But we wanted to do something you know we want to do something instructive and find and something that might be profitable and I had in one, thousand, nine, hundred eighty. One, eighty two been making hip hop records for Cory Robbins of profile records run DMC. You know like. And so there was a guy gene, and I met who wanted to start a hip hop label and he brought this artist of his up to our office. And I was blown away and he said he can finance a hip hop label and we finance a hip hop label. We was down with Wu. Tang, they'd come up to our and hang everybody everybody Noriega all these gangs guys who come up and hang out with us, and we spent three years, and we lost four hundred thousand dollars. And so I'm doing it right right so when Ken said you should write a book I said. Well, what are you write about August? Will you write about what you know and so I said well I know I know. I met some really crazy people so I wrote this book called Humpty. Dumpty was push based on the hip hop, experiences and I. It's been optioned for film. TV Five different times, but I never wrote the screenplay, but right now a friend of mine produces big TV shows, and he read the book, and he said I think you should write a screenplay for a film. And I and I just finished yesterday. So I'm going to send it out to him. And hopefully he'll like it. So you know Humpty continues Humpty continues. And what I'm hoping, is you know it comes out and? Also lots of books. Well, you know. I think that anyone who can go from talking about. Pesach to hip hop. same brother paragraphs. Right, well I tell you this. Crack me out, but. And are watching public television. They were doing a pitch and they had a great the greatest soul songs of the seventies. And you can buy goodbye a sixty say. Oh, yeah And my son when she was was on it. And I'll like. Along with other stuff that I just love like if you don't know me by now like a Lotta stuff like. Oh my God. Oh, my God. Gene, I might officially be a soul man. So we, We. And we got a box that's. It's one of my most price Zetsche. It's excellent. Man I'm telling you know life is good. I was somewhere and I heard somebody. Say Somebody Else A. How's it going? And the guy went? I'm living the dream and I was like that's it man. I'm living the dream. Well, you know what you've. You've really helped. A lot of people make make dreams happen to not I mean to be corny about it, but when you learned in Nicaragua a lot of fundraising to dig wells wrote right Jerry as you. You know you've really sort of fostered. A, lot of musicians, a joke about losing money over the years for trying to do the hip hop label, but you know you've mentored a lot of musicians and and brought people along the way, so you've helped people their dream to I think. I think it's mutual I. Think it's really mutual. I feel incredibly blessed. I mean I, Marc. Cohn came up to the office one day. Urge correct, so he came over when because we were close. And he said Hey I got record Eli Atlantic records. You want to hear the song. A sat down at the piano in the walk into Memphis and I knew Doug Morris who was the head of Atlantic records because he had signed the as an artist and I I called them up I said Doug. I just heard the most amazing thing in the world. Goes Way. Walkie to Memphis by mark home. So I. had that experience I knew Lisa, Loeb? She played his day. Michael Bolton came to the office to play dock of the bay because we were close with him. So you know. Is just not. It's just nice. It's nice to be part of a community and feel like. You want the best for everybody yeah. Well? I mean some of the. Some of your other influential are giving Marie Osmond. The most played song of her career right right but. That's not I saw I see her on weight, watchers, commercials and I'm like. Rats when you look like that, you don't have to really saying she did a great job, but you know I mean. Let's and now you're a step, Grandad, that's right. OUR DAUGHTER HARDY HAS A. Son named Xavier, and they hardy and Kristen Deger all got covert. And then. Subsequently recovered. They've been tested and they have antibodies. Oh my yeah. We should explain that one because this is one of my favorite stories as I mentioned. You're my stepbrother and you have a second wife, and she has two daughters and I got to know your stepdaughter hardy pretty well. She did a little work with me with my peel green back in the day, and she's really into sustainability also. But Hardy and I have a step step thing so she's actually my step step. Niece in I guess that makes her son Xavier my. Greatly. Step step, nephew. Yeah, she loves you. She loves him. Back at you and her so any other lake? Moments when you know you're just being a regular old idiot. But you think back on the moments of genius that you had. What jumps out at you. There's one story one story that is unbelievable. We talked about. I wrote price back to Chrysler used. and. I wrote it with a guy named Allemande and Larry, Ali Anyway so Alan. Mon was a big executive at a an agency. And he calls me up. He and his partner and they talk like madmen mock. We asked to to beat a entertainment of pride entertainment for this ball. Would you write a song for the ball? And I wrote the song and Marco came in and saying it, and they said well. You know we'd like you to play the song for the person who was the honoree. So, as like great, you know, they said you have a boombox. Bloomberg does bring up to the plaza. He May at ten o'clock Monday morning, and we'll introduce you to the person who's GonNa and you had no. Idea who she was right. So. Okay, so I gotta the Plaza Athenee. It's a Boutique Hotel.

America mock wrote that song and other songs which you like. Oh my God this poor woman. Yeah, you and I have no people who passed away from cancer. We now horribly us and there's probably a connection between someone. She loved dying cancer her being the American Cancer Society Woman of the year as what this was score. So okay, so we're sitting at the table. They can you play it for hallmark and I go Kay and I. Play it for her and she starts. Crying hysterically. Hysterically And when the song is over, she's in tears, and and one of the guys puts his arm on on my leg under the table and I. Swear to God would should you did good? But she's kind of gains her composure, and then they say this. I just couldn't believe want to hear it against Sherry. Hands are up in the air. No, no. To. Insist she and she's like a wet middle. You know, and and I leave I. Thank you know Sherry, thank you great great all right so then I get back to my office and I. Guess this call from them. Go mock. She really liked the song. You think you can get your friend. Kenny Rogers to do a video of the song and will play at the Waldorf Astoria at this. Event the American Cancer Society Gene Calls Can. She's very persuasive, so do video the national. Go down and produce him. We do the video. Now. We're she invites? US to the Waldorf story for this night right and there's like you know a thousand people in the grand ballroom and the chairman of the Board of car. She gets on stadium tonight. We have a special. Special Song and we'd like to thank the person who wrote it marked black. Would you stand up and because nobody that right in award ceremonies, usually record company picks it up the so I'm sitting there. Looking around for this Guy Mark Honestly and she says to me stand up stand. And then Sherry does a speech. And then there's like all these stars Bette Midler Danny de. Vito, one after another. You name them all of them than in the dinners being served and I said well. I think I should go. Congratulate Sherri you know for the. For the night I go over to I, say Sherry congratulations, and she says all mark. Thank you so much. Have you met my escort? I'm like. This is weird, right No I don't believe I. Have and she says Henry. Kissinger. This is mark. To me, you'll must be very proud young man. This where it gets interesting and you might want to buy gas. Go a little longer, because it's really interesting and all I can think of when he says congratulations, young man is a line from a Joseph Heller book called good as Gold and re Kissinger's ask how come you have Jewish accent. And he says it's not a chew ish accent. It's a German accent. Right, that's what Henry Kissinger says okay now as I found out like a little weird and so I was very hesitant. And also grew up during the Vietnam War and he was one of the key architects. It was a very uncomfortable feeling for me. Okay, fast forward eight years, okay. I'm in the HAMPTONS. At a restaurant with my wife and my sister-in-law Lynn neary. who was broadcast on NPR. Is the charge books, and we're sitting at a table in this restaurant and this guy walks in his about Seventy five close to eighty. And my heart goes. I don't know who he is I have no idea. Why am I feeling like this? I was just overwhelmed with love. So. I said to win. You know who is that guy and she says it's Joseph Heller. Hull. Unbelievable right so I say Lynn I talked to him I got to talk to him. And says to me. I don't think you WanNa talk to him. He's a misanthrope. He's known for being misinformed, but I'm like I gotTa talk to them rights so. There's a moment where he's alone I go up to him and I say Joseph Feller. Mark Black and he opens up his arms, and he smiles, and he goes smart black. What can I do for? And kids for like fifteen minutes about Henry, Kissinger. When he was leaving, he came over to our table. With his arm around me. To my father in law. Mark Black. I love that kid. Story. It's a good one. Story. That's it. Mocks unbelievable. Like. I can't believe it. It was really it was great well. Good Road Mark Yes. May continue for many many miles to go you, too you, too. You look fabulous. We Love Your podcasts mark. Flat you for joining me. It's quite a living. Quite. Well I really WANNA. Thank you for listening for sharing I.

Welcome to textile production from. I heart radio. Hey there and welcome to tech stuff. i'm your host. Jonathan strickland an executive producer with iheartradio. And i love all things tech and it is. Monday may thirty first. Twenty twenty one memorial day which means the holiday here in the united states. And because of that. I am actually taking the day off and so rather than having a new episode for you. This is an episode that originally aired on a different holiday the fourth of july back in two thousand eighteen and it is titled tech stuff moments with mr lincoln Because i think of memorial day's being like the beginning of the summer season and for me summers were often coupled with trips to disneyworld because i lived in georgia. Florida was not that far away and my sister and i were fanatics. So sit back. Enjoy this episode and on wednesday. Br going to continue our story about the very complicated evolution of warner medium. And i'll chat with you a little bit at the end of the episode. This episode is to publish on the fourth of july two thousand eighteen and here in the united states that date is treated with some reverence as we consider it independence day and back. In seventeen seventy six the continental congress representing the thirteen colonies of the americas declared those colonies. A new nation called united states of america. But that actually happened on july second. Seventeen seventy six. John adams was convinced that that was going to be the day. We all celebrated as it turned out. We decided to do it on july fourth. Because that was the day the declaration of independence that famous document outlining america's arguments for seceding from the british empire was dated dated july fourth. Seventeen seventy six. Also despite what popular musical numbers would have you believe in mostly likely that most of the representatives did not sign the declaration of independence that they probably did it on august. Second seventeen seventy six but never mind all that. The fourth of july is when the us celebrates independence day. Whenever it happened doesn't matter it just matters when we celebrate it and in the past on tech stuff. I've tried to time glee related topics to that date. Whenever we've published on or around fourth of july we've talked about the tech of say independence day the movie or like fireworks and today. I wanna talk about a disneyland attraction. Called great moments with mr lincoln because i feel that's sort of quintessentially american even though lincoln was our sixteenth president and governed in the nineteenth century not the eighteenth century but never mind america right and know were talking disneyland something that is truly a piece of americana and great moments with mr. Lincoln is located on main street. Usa now is walt disney's monument to the classic americana small town almost like a an america. That never was an idealized america. So i figured it was a good topic to cover in this episode. Now i have done an episode about audio animatronic in the past. And i'm going to be covering some of that ground again here. But we're specifically looking at the development of the mr lincoln attraction in this episode. So i'm not gonna focus too much the other stuff. I'll have some stuff to say about some of the predecessors because that's important understand in order to figure out how mr lincoln worked so if you're unfamiliar with the attraction great moments with mr lincoln. Here's kind of how it goes into a building as the grand opera house on main street. Usa and disneyland. And you would see a little pre show piece before going into a theater. And you'd sit down you get another little film. And then a screen would lift up. And you'd see seated centerstage the audio animatronic figure of abraham lincoln and then abraham lincoln stands up out of his chair and speaks to the crowd and the content and the technology of the attraction have changed several times throughout the years. In fact these days You wouldn't call it audio animatronic at all. It's the only reason anyone would refer to it that way. Just because that's what technology had been called for years and years and years. But the current incarnation at disneyland isn't really audio animatronic. It's not working on that. Same system number before i talk about how it works. Let's go into the history of audio animatronic and the development of this attraction in particular. Because i think it's pretty fascinating to learn about not just the technology side but the business side of this so i gotta go back to nineteen forty nine. That's when walt disney took his family on a vacation in europe and on that trip. Disney got enamored with some clockwork mechanical toys including a mechanical. Little bird you would wind up. And it would tweet and flaps its wings and move in a pretty convincing way. He was inspired by that. To take these toys back to his his folks over at walt disney studios and say you know we've we've animated stuff on film we've taken cells and we've drawn pictures on them and we've taken photographs of that and turn it into a film where it looks like. The inanimate is moving around. What if we did something similar but we did it in the real world. We brought it into the three dimensions around us and make make this idea. Sort of a grander scale. We're going take these little mechanical elements that i've seen here and make it something much bigger so you return to california. He brought his ideas to his team of developers that we now today would call imagine years. That's a portmanteau of imagination. An engineer and he said what if we were to make something like this but bigger so in nineteen fifty one. He gave an assignment to two of his employees roger bragging and waddell rogers Roger boggy was born in nineteen. Oh eight in pittsfield massachusetts and he attended a vocational school and trained in machine shop. Work he would relocate to los angeles and he found a lot of work in the film industry he even developed technologies like a rear projection system for major movie studios and in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. He got an invitation to join the walt disney studio as a precision machinery. One of his first jobs he had was to install the multi plane animation camera in the studios brand new burbank location. Now this was the camera that consisted of not just a film camera but also a massive frame and that frame could hold multiple layers or planes of an animated cell. So you might have a foreground image. You might have a main image. You might have a couple of background images and they would all be held at different heights relative to this camera lens and then by moving the frames either closer to or further away from the camera you can make elements within that animated appear to move at different speeds and give this illusion of depth. So it's almost like you're zooming end through an animated Seen and that was something. That was really really innovative. Well also i should mention that disney did not necessarily invent that one of his former employees more or less invented this approach of by works. But that's a different story. Disney made extensive use of that technology when his studio made snow white and the seven dwarfs by nineteen fifty bragging had been promoted to the head of the studio machine shop and wall started thinking about building. A theme park brought is one of his goto engineers for attractions. Rogers meanwhile was born in nineteen nineteen and strengthen colorado and he studied art at An institute in los angeles he became proficient in lots of different areas of art including sculpting so he joined the walt disney studio also in nineteen thirty nine along with broadway and early on he worked primarily as an animator on films like pinocchio bambi cinderella and peter pan. He also created props for the studios. Live action films and like groggy. He would be invited by disney to work on attractions for the upcoming disneyland theme park so walt disney comes up to these two guys and he says i want you to build me a figure approximately nine inches tall of a man that can move around like a human can so sort of like a puppet but not puppeteer by any person in real time. It would be a entire mechanical system. That would be able to do this. And it was called project little man so as to build a nine inch human figure that could move and and move. Its mouth as if it's talking and be able to synchronize that with an actual voice track and essentially he just wanted to bring that concept of animation into the real world. Buddy obsession the actor. Who would become jed clampett in the beverly hillbillies would come into the studio only did this whole song and dance routine in front of a screen. That was a Just a bunch of grid lines so that the animators had a reference they could work from and buddy would later say of disney quote. He took me to a room. Where there were these seven little guys with aprons and thick glasses. Working on a contrivance pulled wires and a little mechanical man that moved his arms legs head and mouth and collect so the two engineers led the team. They used cables and cams and hinged limbs to create sort of a rudimentary muscle and skeletal system for this little figure and the machinery would end up being underneath this little figures stage so the whole thing was actually quite large figure was only nine inches tall but the whole system was really big and it wasn't really that dissimilar to a puppet except again. The puppeteer was mechanical. Not a human. And i it was. It was it kind of worked. But it wasn't practical later when it came time to look into making audio animatrix for theme park attractions. Braga would actually go to walt disney. And say that we should really create larger life sized figures. It would actually make it easier because you could fit a lot of the elements inside the figure itself. Instead of having to find places in the environment to hide all the mechanisms that would make the figure move so this would serve as the genesis for a new field of innovation disney which was audio animatronic. The term is defined as being or consisting of a lifelike electro mechanical figure of a person or animal that has synchronized movement and sound although to be fair with the audio animatronic. It's synchronized to sound. And it's not the sound you hear ha so we'll disney. Has this idea. He says you know we've got disneyland or opening that up. What have we created a restaurant. let's make a chinese restaurant and in the lobby. This chinese restaurant is a figure of little old wise chinese man who dispense words of wisdom confucius. But it's not an actor it's actually going to be a mechanical man and a team got to work designing that kind of figure and according to rogers he said quote you could always tell who is working on the job because they never looked at your eyes when you talking to them they were always looking at your mouth in quote they did eventually build a mockup of ahead for this figure but they didn't get much further than that disney had decided to drop that idea for something else and that idea would eventually be the enchanted tiki room which we will come back to in just a minute now. Disneyland opened on july seventeenth. Nineteen fifty five in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine walt. Disney was working on the design of new land. That would go in disneyland. He was already thinking about how to build it out. More and originally this was going to be called liberty street. It would run parallel to main street now. Feature an attraction called one nation under god in this attraction the audience would be treated to a view of audio animatronic figures of every single president of on stage every president would be life sized would have lifelike motions and would be animated so he tasked his to get to work on that concept and they had to start somewhere so the team chose abraham lincoln as their i figure and they were able to get a copy of a life mask. That lincoln had made back before he was president. They got a copy of this and a sculptor named blaine gibson. Who would go on to create most of the faces. Disney animatronic would use that as a guide to create the mask for the lincoln animatronic by nineteen sixty one. They had an early build of. The abraham lincoln figure and it had some limited mobility and expressions it can be controlled or manipulated if you prefer live by an actual Engineer so it wasn't automated yet so it was not a finished product but it was apparently quite impressive even early on because in nineteen sixty two. The team received a visit from a guy named robert moses. Robert moses was a public official from new york city who held numerous positions. None of them publicly elected and had become incredibly influential. He was responsible for massive projects in new york and some of them were controversial and he was in charge of getting new york city. Ready for a world's fair to be held there in nineteen sixty four so dizzy introduced moses to the audio animatronic abraham lincoln. An engineer controlled lincoln to make him stand up and reach out his arm to shake moses hand and moses was so impressed they declared. The world's fair would absolutely half to feature this technology which would require the team to step up their work if they were to meet that particular deadline. How did they do it. We'll tell you in just a moment but first let's take a quick break to thank our sponsor these days you have to keep everything moving and reinvent the wheel with a hybrid. You can do both. That's why manufacturers are going hybrid with ibm with watson on a hybrid cloud factories can use a i to automate the little things so they can focus on the next big thing. Businesses that want to innovate at scale are going with the smarter. Hybrid cloud using the technology and expertise of ibm. The world is going hybrid with ibm visit dot com slash hybrid cloud available. Now from iheart comes season. Two of the restless once presented by t mobile for business. Join me jonathan strickland. As i explore the ever changing rapidly developing technologies that are transforming industries overnight from advancements in cloud and edge computing software as a service internet of things and of course five g from small changes on the back end. That can make a huge difference to tectonic changes that impact the way the entire company does business. We're often left wondering how the leading minds continue to thrive in a world of complex organizations ever changing technology so how do these executives innovate and enabled change both inside and outside there companies. And what are they looking. Forward to tackling next. The restless ones is the must listen to show for those in the know and for those who want to know who want to dive deeper. And who want to stay ahead of the curve first-hand lessons in leadership and innovation from the executives in technology it happened today so make sure you listen to the restless ones every other tuesday. Find it on the iheartradio app. Wherever you get your podcasts. So the team had a goal. Get a show featuring audio animatronic abraham lincoln ready to go for the new york world's fair in nineteen sixty four. That was thirteen months away. A few other components outside the technology fell into place to make this possible because the tech part was just one aspect. Another part was. Where's the money gonna come from. So part of that piece of the puzzle was on the illinois commission. They had decided that the theme for the illinois pavilion at the world's fair would be the land of lincoln. The provisional chairman for this commission was a guy named fairfax cone. So moses tells cone you gotta go and see what walt disney is working on out in california. It's gonna make you flip. Your lid and cone goes out there and ends up meeting with disney. He sees the lincoln figure for himself. He too is really impressed. He would then recommend to the permanent commission chairman who was Lincoln historian named ralph. Newman that he incorporate. The abraham lincoln figure in the illinois pavilion so noone would end up going out and meeting with walt disney and he would see the abraham lincoln figuring he too was blown away. He said yes. We absolutely need this so the next step was convincing the governor of illinois otto kerner that this in fact was something that the state should sponsor in order to get that out to the new york. World's fair so auto kerner met with walt disney and he was convinced that the lincoln figure would be a great addition to the illinois pavilion but the expense of the project was pretty high Originally disney said a million dollars and that was kind of a figure that was out of nowhere but that was the point. The starting point for negotiations eventually the disney company would say we can go as low as six hundred thousand dollars and we could divide that up over two years so the first year would be three hundred and fifty thousand dollars in the second year would be two hundred fifty thousand dollars but that was kind of putting illinois in a tough position. Kerner was having to negotiate. Not just with walt disney but with moses as well and the world's fair because moses was demanding that any exhibitor at the world's fair had to go through him and his departments for things like power and set up and tear down and all these other things that had fees associated with them so the state was going to pay two different groups an enormous amount of money in order for this to happen. But newman knew that. Moses was really impressed by this lincoln figure and newman and disney together met with moses talked to him about this stuff they were trying to convince them to T to lower some of the world's fair requirements in order to make this happen and newman invoked even let it slip that he was going off to meet with some people over the united nations to make it sound like things were super important on his end and eventually moses decided to renegotiate and so they gave several concessions to the state of illinois. Said you're not gonna have to pay these fees. These fees are going to have a maximum amount of five thousand dollars for something that could have cost you ten times as much and even agreed to a two hundred fifty thousand dollars stipend to help fund the lincoln attraction because that's how impressed moses was of it so disney had cut that deal where the nineteen sixty four Rental fee for lincoln would be three hundred fifty thousand dollars and then there was the option for the state to extend that through nineteen sixty five or two hundred and fifty thousand dollars after illinois got that two hundred fifty thousand dollars stipend from the fair them. And they got lincoln for the low low price of one hundred grand for that first year and it also marked the one and only time in the world's fair history that the fair subsidized and exhibit. The state gave disney the official news in august nineteen sixty three so nineteen sixty four. World's fair was right around the corner. It was super fast for them to get this turned around. Meanwhile the team was really hard at work to try to put the show together much of the groundwork for audio animatronic had already been laid by electrician named li atoms. Who created the giant squid featured in the film twenty thousand leagues under the sea. A lotta people point at that as being the first true animatronic figure Under disney although of course that wasn't used as an attraction it was used in a movie the tentacles of the massive squid in that film were actually kind of like balloons so you would use a pneumatic system to pump air into the tentacles that would cause them to unfold and allowing the air to escape what caused the tentacles to curl back up so controlling. The airflow would allow you to puppeteer this giant squid disney imagineering that also already created a theme park attraction using audio animatronic technology at that point the enchanted tiki room which i mentioned earlier was the first attraction to feature audio animatronic and it opened at disneyland in nineteen sixty three It was originally going to be that chinese restaurant then they decided to change it to a polynesian themed restaurant then they decided to eventually dropped the restaurant angle entirely and just make an attraction. So how does it actually work nor the tiki birds. Everything was pretty much binary every single element. Every moving element had a neutral position. So let's say that we're looking at one of four hosts that are macaws and you're looking at the beaks of those macos. The neutral position would be a closed beak so if nothing is going to the the that particular bird beak should be closed and pneumatic system. Which is one that uses. Compressed air to do would activate assault annoyed would actually activate and allow compressed air to move through to force the mouth to an open position. So if you do that manually you would pull a trigger. And that would open up a valve and that would cause airflow through the system to the appropriate element causing the beak tobin. But how was this done automatically not with an actual human operating the thing well. The secret was an ultrasonic. Tones recorded onto magnetic tape like like the kind of tape. You would use a reel to reel tape machine or even a cassette player. Disney used tape. That was an inch wide when it was first doing this and that inch wide tape that they used in in the Jan tiki room had fourteen tracks that you could lay on that one inch of tape and you could put up to sixteen signals on a single tracks. So you would record these ultrasonic frequencies on the tape and when played back they would cause metallic reeds to vibrate in various relays. When the reeds vibrated they would close a circuit that circuit would send an electric current to a solid valve that would allow air to flow to the appropriate feature like that macaws beak causing it open and because the system worked these audio cues disney called the tech audio animatronic. Even though the audio in question is inaudible to humans. Right we don't hear in those ultrasonic frequencies so you could record an audible track that's within human hearing on that same tape and that way you synchronize the ultrasonic frequencies that give the commands to the various elements in the animatronic figure with the audio track. And that way you can have the birds sort of. I was gonna say lip sync but i guess it's more like beak sink to the audio track recorded some of the audio animatronic technology. Mr lincoln dependent upon was similar They had the pneumatic switches for certain parts of the lincoln animatronic but only for the smaller features because pneumatics would not supply the power needed to move some of the larger elements like arms. A person's arms are pretty big and the the air would not be sufficiently powered to move them. Also if you did use air and you did use enough compression to make the arms move they would shoot around like like like lincoln with some sort of crazy karate monster that would not work very well for the attraction so and said they put hydraulic systems in place for some of the larger elements hydraulics use liquids and they use pressure to move the liquids around and the liquids act as a source of mechanical force. So it's similar to pneumatics but with hydraulics you can do a lot more. You can move much heavier things and you can do so in a controlled way with the right amount of pressure. So in theory. Mr lincoln would move. According to the ultrasonic recordings on that magnetic tape and the playback would cause the reeds vibrate completing circuits enforcing either air or liquid through the relevant tubes to make lincoln move in the appropriate way in theory. Oh and Let's talk about solid noise really quickly. I mentioned it before. A annoyed valve asala annoyed is a cylindrical. Coil of conductive wire when you pass a current through the wire it generates a magnetic field. You know this is a basic principle of electromagnetism a solid lloyd. Vowel has a solid with immovable ferro magnetic core in the center of this coil so the core can move laterally through this coil. The core is typically called a plunger so when there's no current rules through the coil. The pleasure is in a rest position. Typically that means it's closing off an opening that's otherwise inside this valve so the valve is closed. When you run a current through the coil it creates a magnetic field that pulls the core out of its rest position. It lifts the plunger. It opens the valve. So the solid valve acts as the switch for the pneumatic and hydraulic elements. In addition the team began to develop technology to make movements more smooth and natural and less just on-off or jerky you didn't want your positions all be one or two. You wanted to have a range especially once he started to get to larger figures human sized figures so to do that they need to create systems could respond to variable voltage increasing or decreasing. The voltage would activate the complex movements. So instead of going from one to two. You could adjust the voltage slightly. Make it move from one to one point three or one point seven and you're not going all the way to your final possible position and that ended up creating a much greater range of movements performers would use either a potentially ometer joystick for every single joint to send varying voltages to the control system for that joint or later on they created harnesses harnesses were able to capture more complicated coordinated movements by measuring voltage changes at all of the different various joints Otherwise doing something. Seemingly as simple as making the finger lifting arm and point with its hand would be incredibly difficult because every single joint needed its own control system under the potentially ometer stick approach. And you had to coordinate all of that correctly right. You couldn't just have one person. Move the arm and then rewind it back and then try and move the wrist and then try and move the hand all. That was really complicated. So once you rehearse all this whether it was with the geometry joysticks or with the harness you would then record this in the form of audio tones overlaid on thirty five millimeter film stock and each joint would take up a reel of film and then all the reels would be recorded to a master tape. Lincoln would use both the potential approach and the harness approach. They got an actor named royal dano to provide the voice for abraham lincoln that would actually get some criticism later on where people said that. His voice was not appropriate for president lincoln. Because lincoln's voice was said to have kind of a high tenor pitch to it and royal. Dana's voice had a lower pitch it. But you know the sla. Some people argue that was a a show stopper and other people say it wasn't such a big deal. Near mileage varies. One story does say that during an early trial run of the show one of the hydraulic hoses inside the lincoln figure Ruptured the valve itself actually broke and that red hydraulic fluid. Began to leak out and stain. Lincoln's shirt prompting. Why the guests to joke that. Perhaps they were commemorating lincoln's assassination which did not make walt disney laugh. He then told his team to switch to clear hydraulic fluid which they did from that point forward then there were times when the valves didn't operate properly they would cause figure jerk around unpredictably which put more pressure on the rest of the system. The technical issues forced the team to delay the opening of the lincoln exhibit at the new york world's fair for about two weeks while they worked out all the bugs but when it did open it was so convincing that some people were certain that the figure was a human actor in a costume and not an audio animatronic figure. Now when we come back. I'll tell the rest of this story as well as what has happened. Since mr lincoln debuted at disneyland but first let's take another quick break to thank our sponsor.

Smart self storage visit cube smart dot com for more details so while the world's fair was going on disney land prepared its own identical attraction. The great moments with mr lincoln attraction that would open the park on july eighteenth. Nineteen sixty six and it would use pretty much. An exact copy of the world's fair exhibit both would operate around at the same time for a while so you had the same show happening on both coasts and the disneyland version was sponsored originally by lincoln savings and loan not the state of illinois. It was housed in the opera house on main street. Usa disneyland never built liberty street but They did decide to repurpose the opera house. That was one of the first if not the very first building constructed for disneyland and during the construction phase for the park it had served as sort of a carpentry shop and workshop. Back in those days disneyland. Attractions were divided up into various categories related. To how the attraction was and this is where you get terms like eight ticket or e ticket attraction and that just referred to the level That that attraction belong to aid ticket. Attractions were simple attractions. Little biddy things that you weren't weren't huge Crowd-pleasers maybe it's a simple ride on main street like a trolley ride but if you wanted to write something a little more advanced than you need to be ticket or a c. Ticket and the really big ticket items were e tickets. Great moments with mr lincoln was different. It was absolutely free. Once you got into the disneyland park ticket. Books did often contain a coupon for the attraction. But that was just meant to help encourage people to go see it. There was no need to actually have a coupon in order to see it. You could just walk right in the original script for great moments with mr lincoln included snippets from various speeches. Lincoln gave throughout his life. The general theme was freedom. Liberty and independence and it would stay that way until january first nineteen seventy-three and that point disneyland closed the attraction to convert it into a new exhibit called the walt disney story. That was to honor the life of walt disney himself as he had passed away several years earlier from lung cancer. The walt disney story was a twenty eight minute film about the life of disney and but guests were upset and the removal of mr lincoln and so in nineteen seventy-five the attraction was revised as the walt disney story featuring great moments with mr lincoln and it became a combined exhibit. The pre show area was dedicated to disney's life and the theater was back to the lincoln show in the late. Nineteen sixty s. Disney imagineering developed the digital animation control system also known as dax. Dac s this system could record control commands onto a disc rather than on magnetic tape. That meant that programming could be done from a control. Board with various buttons switches and dials rather than with a harness or a potential joystick and elements could easily be deleted or overwritten. So you didn't have to worry about doing endless. Takes to get just the right performance. You could just fix any mistakes you made as you went along in the nineteen eighties. Imagine years introduced another system. Called compliance compliance was meant to reduce the wear and tear on animatronic. Says well as to make them more show worthy if an animatronic has to do a quick move. Let's say it's waving and it's moving. Its arm from left to right. Once it reached the end of its movement it would frequently cause the entire figure to vibrate usually get that little robotic vibration at the end of a movement. If you ever seen anyone dance the robot talking about there's that little jerky motion when you get to the end compliance would allow limbs to move just a little past their normal end location and that was in order to be a shock absorber so think about where your wave would end and eat. The the matric would start to slow down but it would continue to allow itself to move past that point for just a little bit so that it had more of a gradual slowing instead of just a sudden stop and you wouldn't get that robotic shake while nineteen eighty-four great moments with mr lincoln underwent a refurbishment and there was a new animatronic lincoln. Installed that used more of this technology also had updated artificial skin. Had a new costume had more advanced digital electronics. But that one closed in two thousand for another refurbishment and two thousand one it reopened and lincoln now delivered the gettysburg address instead of this sort of sort of grouping of various clips from various speeches. So now he. He gave the gettysburg address and that version closed again in two thousand and five because disneyland was celebrating. Its fiftieth anniversary and the theater was given over to a special attraction about the history of the park itself that kept on going until two thousand nine and then lincoln came back again. The newest version is electric animatronic. Figure these speech. Lincoln gives is more or less the original one run. The nineteen sixty four world. Fair does have a few edits to it. It's not quite as long as the original speech was so it's more like the nineteen eighty-four version. Though not exactly the same. In two thousand thirteen disney would shut down its internal division called maple. Apo some people say that stands for. Mary poppins because it was formed. After the success of the movie mary poppins others say no. It's manufacturing and production. That was where the name came from but anyway whether whatever its name came from that was the division that was responsible for producing audio animatronic and then later electronic version of animatronic all them came out from there for the most part and toward the end of its run. More and more of those projects were getting outsourced to other companies so in two thousand thirteen. The company decided. you know. We're just gonna go with this contract approach. We're not going to build them in house anymore. And the company that's mostly in charge of developing animatronic for disney is garner. Holt productions That company is located out of california. It also makes animatrix for lots of other clients. Not just disney but That's the company. That's mostly responsible for them and has had incredible demonstrations of really complicated sophisticated animatronic figures. That are ereli realistic. Like we're talking. Uncanny valley style realistic including abraham lincoln bust. That makes faces that i would say. Start to lean toward the scary. But you have to see the videos to understand what i'm talking about anyway. That wraps up the great moments with mr lincoln story. It's fascinating to me to see how an idea could go from just a hop hypothesis to an actual working How do you go from. I want this thing to exist to making it. So walt disney's imagine ears have a reputation for doing that time and time again and the attractions that disney are are evidence of that fact and as a lifelong disney van. I have a great appreciation for that. Although i have seen comparable work at other parks. I mean there are plenty of other places that have used that same philosophy to great effect Like universal's islands of adventure for example but that wraps up this for the july episode if you have any suggestions for future episodes of tech stuff let me know.

This is this days for everybody to to call in and get a chance to talk to buck and to me. I may not be happy to talk about whatever but You know the read shepherd thing has been a hot topic lately. You know it's interesting for us because You know we've had the good fortune of being watching read for the last three years and i remember just a little bit ago when you guys come down and did the thirteenth regional tournament right You know mad had talked to me before that he said is this kid for real and i said absolutely You know he's He's a special talent. Especial kid and i'm looking forward to big things for. I just heard jeff shepherd. His dad was on with cameron meals on report right before we came on and jeff said something. I thought was really good. And we'll see what you think about this. They sat down after they got beaten thirteenth region. Tournament my knock central and decide. Hey man i think you've proven everybody you can play college basketball so why not. Just go out and just play. Just relax have fun. You're gonna play college basketball here just now. Let's enjoy this summer. Go all these travel ball tournament and just have fun when a again. I've watched him play for three years. And i've been. I've been telling people for the last couple i said you know by the time that this kid's junior you won't be able to guard him and so that'll be this coming year. Who you know. I think the people in the thirteenth regional really have a difficult time. He doesn't have any weaknesses really in his game. I mean you know his only real weaknesses. experience You know there's been times where you know. Maybe doesn't make the best decision at that time but a lot of that just comes with experience but you know he shoots the ball real. Well he handles. The bali goes both ways. He's athletic you can get to the ram You know he can guard when you know when he needs to so he's just He's just a wonderful talent. And i'm looking forward to see and You know what it can be because you you have to realize. He's still has two years of high school basketball he. He's proven news. Everybody he can play kentucky's level. He's he's not just kentucky kid calibrated recruiting. He can play at that level. I've said that. I think you'll be one of the top two or three guards in his class When it comes out I know there's I've heard you all talking about another guy. That kentucky was recruiting in his class. It's supposed to be the top guard. Yeah but wagner son right and You know the thing. The thing that i've seen with read is Read has Good people around him. And obviously you know stacy and gyp both played collegiate basketball kentucky. And so you know he. He's got He's got a good base and a good foundation of people that can lead him in the right way and teach him of the things that he needs to know and he's opposed kid. you know he's He's a wonderful kid to be around. I've i've seen him away from the court several times and he's always Very courteous and respectful and You know he's But but i just think that Where he can go over the next two years is going to be. It'll be fun to watch. What's your breakdown of his game. Buck richie's down with him. I mean he's rat. We've watched him for the last couple of years. And and you know really the only weakness we've saying he's experiencing you know he's getting a lot of that of course thirteenth agents are going to have some really good players this year. You know devante turner comes back. And i think there's a couple more that's gonna that's gonna shannon that ritchie son. He's he graduated back. He told me he was coming back. he graduated but You know there's a. There's a couple of kids over in harlem one for harlan county one for harlan city. That yeah. No people are looking at The noah kid you know he was out last year he broke his foot. I think was out but Somebody told me he had grown to inch. He's like six seven now so There'll be a battle thirteen did somebody may be central. Florida was Really high on him and loved him really. Yeah they had been watching him play. I think maybe in atlanta earlier this year and they were They were real high on him. He's he's a good player. Or did you guys play the thirteenth region. When you played we played at bell county most of the time my freshman year we played it at middlesboro so it moved around a knox central. Yeah just depending on who had the nicest gym at that time you know and then bail county built the new school so we played I think the last two or three bell county their new gym at their new You got you so it was a little different you know the the arena down. There is a little bit A little bit different venue. Nice meeting you for high school region tournament. It's it's super nice. You know well a lot of the people that that have a problem. Is it that you're not close enough to the action you know we're used to being in a gym patron on top of each other and you know screaming and hollering and that kind of you know is a little bit different atmosphere like you said But the law of kids. You know you'd think it would hurt her game but it don't seem to bother a lot albums game. Yeah you know. All the basketball with thirteenth regions producing these football players to the trayvon longmire from corporate already committed the other kid from corbin. I can't think named got an offer from kentucky gavin chadwell from knox central got off that's match discovery recruit or something we have to recruits. He's one of them little. Kfi orcas star. That's right but first athlete. We graded anybody else in that Do y'all have anything in the hopper that you might wanna roll out today about superstars while you're talking about read. Got me thinking he talked about. How emotional he got when he got his offer. And i mean of all the people to know what it's like to get. The scholarship offer kentucky and the pressure of being in that area. Pure you could speak on that a little bit force absolute and i even i told jeff last year i said You know listen. He's he's getting ready to be and some He's gonna be in a situation where you know a lot of media attention a lot of people looking at him you know critiquing everything and every move that he does and so You know. I have known what it's like to be in that fish bowl and But i think again a lot of that comes with the people you have around you to to lead you and guide you and i know jeff stacy will do a wonderful job of that with this kid and i don't have any Any concerns at all about The way he'll handle it. I i know he'll He'll get back to work and take care of business and be ready to accept all that that family connection how good he's looking so far it's a name that's constantly being talked about just getting started for a couple of dollars. Yeah it's going to be a it'll be the biggest thing that we've seen in this state for a long. I've always said there's been to rockstars kentucky high school basketball just to rex. Chapman richie farmer. I think read can get almost get that conversation because it it started so early. We were talking about him on his showing you the fourth grade. He is in this conver- conversation he he most certainly will be in that conversation. There's any question whether or not he will be there. Just just wait. I mean it's just getting started. Like i said two years he's But he's the real deal. Yeah i'm i'm so excited for for jeff. Acm for read to You know because like you said Just finally getting that offer from kentucky of that's a place that You know your parents played You i know may was something that When i was the first grader the teacher passed around and sheet of paper instead. Right down on it what you want to be when you grow up some wrote dr. Some wrote lawyers some some astronauts. I wrote i want to be a uk wildcat. And that's what it meant to me and So you know dreaming watching you know listen to k. Would laugher would turn the sound down on the three or four games a year. That was on tv then and You know we we. We saw the games through k. Woods is and so that's what it was. It was so special for me to be around k. Within and but just to be a part of that To live your dream. I think is very very special. What did a first grade bookstores right down that he wanted to be. Were you the doctor. You mentioned no heavy lifting ditch digging. That was my you know guys. I think we're going to go to a break. We'll be back with more ks aren't few minutes talked about jones and the crew all the pup and shop phone line at five. Oh two seven one. Ten eighty or one eight seven seven nine four eighty or orson does the kentucky brand kia or tweet of the day by twenty matt k. Sports radio Grew hank kentucky sports. Talk back kentucky. Sports radio with bucks stivers Drew franklin ryan lemon and me. Richie farmer You know. I wanted to talk just a second with buck You know we talk just a few minutes ago about Yesterday being your second time on the air this'll be your third but Let's talk about your second a little bit the guys from new york and I i guess. Pardon my. take the They they call in or had buck kalle iran and What what was that like for you but well. it was very interesting to serve. The least i can confused got me stuck holler a holler and a ditch and a hollering a called it a hollow at first correct anna creek and that's holler right and you know a holler is the area between two hills or you know area down there. And there's creeks and gullies and all that end the haulers but they couldn't figure that out for some reason and so you know and they kind of had buck on figure it out either webster's definition holler you know thought it was. You know which i guess. They thought that. I lived in a log. Cabin with jed clampett. Well i mean we do have black top roads that you did make the point that there were some blacktop roads in kentucky. So i mean. I always thought that was a good thing and you know that was a white a micheals look a lot better. They're down in clay county because they already think we're kind of you know in the in the sticks which we are with buck was on. I texted drew me like. Are you listening to this. It was awesome. It was so good. Well you know what your friend chuck under the bus. I mean could wasn't there to defend himself. He wasn't there to defend himself. The funniest thing is a friend has the text last night and Are put on something. Maybe facebook and said i think i played softball which stivers like. It's so you know that was very interesting but i. I thought that one of the funniest things that i liked about it was When they were asking about the hunting seasons and you know if there was a big fat turkey out there you know first of all they thought bucks freezer would be empty job which i thought was funny and then you know they said would you. Would you go ahead and just shoot that bird. you know. even though it's not season and book well when i wasn't violated. And he said. I think butterball makes a good bird and i thought that was one of the lines. They even like that they. They laughed at that. They come from a long line of lawyers. You know know. Jay harley admit to a felony anytime bread into us you know we believe kitchen before hanging living life in clay county. Right there absolutely. Yeah but but no violating no violent mile way. A lot of that call on their podcast on their show today. They'll take a lot of it and put it on there. I might have to check in on what they said. Today get their their thoughts. Slept on it. Yeah i'd like to know what You know just how the boxster sunk in to the guys from new york. I mean i think that was You know. I was a little bit of a shot to the bookstore. I like to sink in when john as as good as your call was buck about fifteen minutes. Later joanne called in blew me out of the wall. There has to be one of the top three calls we've ever had ever on kentucky sports radio. Don't you think oh.

Get Intense and Intentional With Your Money (Hour 3)

"From the headquarters of Ramsey solutions. It's the Dave Ramsey show. That is Dom cashews king in the mortgage has taken the place of the BMW as a stat of chore. I'm Dave Ramsey. Your host. This is your show because it's all about open phones as we talk about you in front of you. The phone number is triple eight eight to five five two two five that's triple eight eight to five five to five Melissa is with us in college station, Texas to start off this hour. Happy new year, Melissa how are you? Are you Dave better than I deserve? What's up? Okay. I am just have a question. So my husband, and I are getting ready to start saving for a down payment on a house, and I was looking at the money market rate with our credit union, and it's point two five percent like like Google money market rates at higher percentages, and I found some out there, but they're like bigger banks like one of them that came up with like American Express or see TI Bank and whatnot. Do you suggest just stick with what the credit union offers or is it? Okay. If I go outside of the credit union to find higher interest rate is it really matter. Here's the thing. Okay. How much money are you talking about saving and over what period of time? Oh, goodness. It's probably going to be probably like. Fifty thousand in the next two or three years. So one percent on fifty thousand five hundred dollars. A half a percent. Difference is two hundred fifty dollars. Yeah. That's what we're talking about here. So I would number one. Did you talk the credit union in person or did you just look at their website at their website? Okay. I'd call the manager and just go. Hey, you know, American Express CIT. They've got these things on their site. That's like one percent. And you guys are like at a quarter. What's the problem because credit unions are supposed to be better than banks? Just kind of give him a hard time. Wink, wink, right with a smile on your face, right? And see what you get out of that. I do that periodically with my hometown Bank and get my rate up. Got a little more than fifty thousand in there. I'm not exactly, you know, jed clampett with Mr. Drysdale or something here. But it's. But at least you could just mess with them. Right because they might have something that's not showing on their website. I'm trying to save for a house, and I need to get around one percent on my money. And I'd like to keep it here in town, and you know, with the credit union, I don't really want to send it to New York. But you know, you're going to have to help me out here and just mess with them little bit shop around your local area. But I wouldn't spend a thousand dollars worth of my time trying to make a hundred bucks. Right. So just kinda I'm probably going to keep it around town there somewhere. But I think you can probably get something up around the one percent, Mark. If you're already up to five or ten thousand savings and your heading towards fifty while you're saving for your down payment. And plus you've probably got your other stuff at the credit union your emergency fund. You know, you're checking and that kind of stuff, and so they ought to be helpful to you there. And that's what I would look for open phones at triple eight eight to five five two two five El Paso, Texas. Angelina is with us. Hey enjoy. How you doing? I'm doing great. How are you deserve? How can I help? Question. I'm a financial a financial university coordinator, and I'm advising a sixteen year old high school students. She's a former student of mine, and she is graduating a year early at the tender age of seventeen this spring going off to college she's raised by her grandmother who can't help her with this question. She received judgment when she was just an infant do an accident is in time deposit account, and she cannot have it until she's eighteen she wants to know what who's responsible for the taxes that she have to pay taxes on this money is it considered a gift or is it just going to be on the interest house is gonna affect her as far as disclosure because she does ten ninety nine every year. And what should she do with it questions? Okay. Yeah. Well, FAFSA is just listing out. What you have and assets, it is an asset of hers. And once she's eighteen it, you know, it will keep her from getting Pell grants. Pell grants are given to poor people and she's not going to qualify because she's not poor. But it's not gonna affect her for other kinds of scholarships with FAFSA so scholarships, cutting it won't affect that. At all that you only if their need-based because she's not going to be need-based how much money's in this just under thirteen but what we figured it far as interests over the years. It's probably around fifteen right now, they won't give her any access to this at all. It's all through the district clerk, she they won't tell her anything 'cause she's eighteen run. Okay. That's fun. Well, we'll get the money money away from those idiots as soon as she's eighteen and we'll put it in a good money market account. It's not gonna make any money. It's going to be for her to go to school on. It's pretty sample and keep her in an inexpensive school as inexpensive as possible and she'd go to right there and. No, you're in L pass. Oh, my last caller station. I'm sorry. But anyway, the. Community college as let's get her through with this money, and it's not a lot of money now as far as whether it is taxable or not it depends on what kind of settlement. It was. And what the settlement was four. Injury. And so it's just listed as a time deposit. Well, that's not that's not a subtle. That's not a type of settlement. There's it would be punitive or compensatory and you'd have to go win was the injury. Well, it occurred what she was born two months early as a result of the accident. Okay. So. Twenty years. Okay. Right. All right. So it's doubly compensatory, and it could be punitive depending on like a drunk driver hit you, you know, in a car wreck or something it could be both get compensation for your loss compensation. And then they give punishment to the person who broke the law. That's punitive. And so the there some of that is taxed and some of it is not taxed the interest is taxed, but the inter should've been pad taxes paid on it as it went along. Knowing pain on his far, as we know they won't divulge any information to her. I spoke with the district clerk yesterday. They mum's the word. Okay. Well, that's just ridiculous. But they're trying to keep some kid from blowing their money on going to Cobb. Oh for the weekend or something on this something responsible with it? I get their motivation, but they're being stupid. So either way, you know, when you can find out about it. She just needs to tax professional look at it and tell her she's taxes on it. There should be some documentation on the original lawsuit. That was settled somewhere. Right. Could be public record. It could be in the family files. I don't know what happened. But it sounds like maybe her parents were killed in an accident. And when. In her grandmother's raising her, and she doesn't know a lot about the situation because it's in the parents name. But now she's legal guardian 'cause she raise the child, so it's real difficult to get into formation. Just like what do I do? What am I supposed to do? You know, how am I gonna pay taxes on this job? She's going to have any. So I wouldn't panic much about that. The main thing is just get control the money and use it for education as soon as we can. And if you can see a tax pro, and they can help her figure out if you taxes taxes on this. But it depends on how the settlement of structured as to whether that's the answer. I get asked all the time. Do I need life insurance? Listen, the point of life insurance is to replace your income for someone who on it. So if you have a spouse, if you have kids, yes, you need term life insurance and the best place, I know to get it is Zander dot com. Zanderinsurance where I get all my insurance. And it's where I've been sending my listeners for over twenty years. You can get a quote in a matter of seconds. It's not expensive. It's not complicated. And you need to do this now Zander dot com. New year America. We're glad you're us. This is the year you're going to win. But yield aside if that's a true statement or not. Open phones, triple eight eight to five five two two five. Marquette is with us in Atlanta. Happy new year Marquette, how are you? I'm good. How are you? Happy new year. How can I help? Okay. So I am in a hundred twenty thousand six hundred sixty nine dollars debt, and we currently bring in five thousand three hundred thirty four dollars. The math told me that the longest take me be about five years to do it. But we're an apartment right now. And we're raining in this apartment has had mold and I would like to move because our lease is up in April. And I'm trying to figure out what that be a good decision because over the past year, I've went for making twenty four thousand to sixty one thousand in salary did. So you're single. No, I'm married. Okay. You make sixty one thousand what does he make Barry fever ninety thousand dollar household income if one hundred twenty thousand dollars in debt, what kind of debt is it. Seventy is student loans these team for one car instead and team for the other about sixties credit cards, and then it's a medical Bill. And how much is your rent? I rate is nine oh four, and when you move what would be your rent? That's the thing. I'm thinking it would go up because most of the rant around here where we live in. From a thousand to about twelve hundred. I really don't wanna pay more than twelve hundred period. So well, I don't really want you pay more than that under which are paying now. That'll be nice. Well, if I say here. You don't have a mold in factor. I don't think you're staying there. But I think we're going to say gosh, we need to move, and we're gonna move into something that is nine hundred a month. That's clean. And. Then you gotta start asking yourself. What have we gotta do to get rid of one hundred twenty thousand dollars where the debt you got thirty five thirty two thousand dollars where the Car Loans, right? It's a lot for somebody living in an apartment. And I want period, but you know, you can work your way through this. But I'm probably saw in one of those cars, if I'm you guys and get me, a cheap car paid for beater while I get out of debt, and let's see if we can accelerate this get outta debt process. If you cut up your credit card yet. Did you or not? No, not all of them that using him. Why doesn't matter get them out and cut them up? All right right now. All right now decide if you're gonna live in this apartment with two car payments broke the rest of your life or not. You have to show. After some. It's radical kid. Something's gotta change. It's time to get fired. You're not even making the play-offs much less win in the Super Bowl. It's time to get with it. Right. Right. Here in your brow. Can you really tell them make that much? Everydollar, but it and even for this. I rented their money, and it's not. What I'm trying to get. You realize is that when you get disgusted is when you're going to change, but you you're using credit cards. You still got your credit cards open. You've got car payments coming out your ears, and you're not winning. You're going to have to get radical to win. And it's gonna it's gonna require a dramatic mindset change. You have children. Yes. I have one son. How old is he? He's buys when he goes to bed the night as soon as he goes to sleep. I want you and your husband to walk in there and look at that sleeping child and make him a promise that you're going to change his family tree by changing your dad gum behaviors you can do this. Have you been the financial peace university yet? Now, if I give it to you will you go both of you. Yes, we will go. All right. And then when you're rich someday, I want you to send somebody else as your gift. Okay. Okay. 'cause you're gonna be rich. If you do what I teach you to do. But you're gonna have to do it. You have to give fired up. It's you gotta get disgusted where you go. I don't care. I'm getting max, I'm sick and tired of making as much money being bro. When you get that thing going inside of you when you get sick and tired of being sick and tired. That's when you're gonna change kiddo. That's when everything's going to happen. You quit playing around the edges of this trying to figure out a way to cheat the system you can't cheat the system it's freaking math. It kicks your butt until you kick. Its but somebody's going to win this argument. And you got to win the argument. So far math is kick your butt. You got one hundred twenty thousand dollars in debt, and you live in a Molin festival -partment making ninety thousand dollars a year the five year old son, get disgusted. I'm disgusted. Get disgusted. You can do this old on we're going to give you financial peace university. And you call me back if you need some help as you're doing this. So guys. That's what it is. Right there less Brown. The great motivator says people change their lives when they finally say. That's it. I've had it. I've had it not living like this anymore. I make too much money to me this broke. That's when you your life. People get that thing going in their voice. You can hear it. You could see the way they set their jaw. You could say the way there is look you see the way they carry themselves. They are now going to be intentional and they're not gonna put up with a half, but mediocre life anymore. I'm gonna change my life. And that's when you do it. And the neat thing is you can just decide right now to do that ready set. Go. You can just decide. Martinez going to do it. I think Mark is going to do it. That's why gave her financial peace. But you gotta get disgusted. I remember when we go and broken losing, everything run our twenties. Rachel's a brand new baby Denise is a toddler. We're subroto. We couldn't pay attention. We're starving to death. People calling us a screaming at us. American express. Call my house, we owed them eleven hundred sixty six dollars the call my house and the collector American Express asked my wife. He said, why would you stay with the man that wouldn't pay bills? He was being an abusive collector chronic at her riled up to get the Bill pay. That's what collectors do they try to feed on your emotions? She called me crying at work. So you say why? So you say why? I was thinking the same thing. I got so mad. I couldn't see. Gotta my wife. She should leave me. I got so mad. I couldn't see. House ready to go to Jacksonville, Florida to the little collection department there and kick somebody's butt right? I've got so mad. I was so illogical paid the Bill. I used our food money. We didn't me food because a page stupid American Express. But you know, what I did? That was the stupid thing. Did you know what the positive thing was? I did I said we're never doing business with American Express again rest of our lives any company that would have someone on their employees that acts that way I'm going to do business with American Express thirty years ago. You know, much business. I've done with American Express in any form. None. None. Period. Discover car call with a single mom. I was coaching. She was in the bathroom getting ready for work her child. Five years old picked up the phone and the collector told the child at discover card was gonna come take his toys because his mama hadn't paid the Bill. These are the kind of scum the work at these places. You have to have a moment where you say. I've. Putting up with this anymore? When you have that moment, you'll change your life until then you're just going to be mediocre half. But people wandering around broke looking like, you're not. He's on the line Tyler, and Chelsea you're calling. Hey, guys. How are you? Great. How are you better than I deserve is see on my screen, you're debt free? Congrats. Very cool. How much you paid off? Ninety nine thousand dollars in student loan love it and how long did that take? About forty five months. Good for you and your range of income during that time. So we started out right out of grad school making about sixty thousand a year and ended up about one hundred thousand cool I'll do for a living. I'm in video work. So I do all kinds of video projects. And I'm a stay at home. Mom. Okay. Cool. So you got you did grad school work in video. Yes. Really? Ministers. Tell tell me about that. What's your what's your degree in? What is it? Yeah. I went and we went to LA and I got a master's fine arts degree and and film producing. Wow. Good for you. Okay. So and ninety nine thousand dollars in student loans and almost four years later, they're gone. How long have you guys been married? We just had our tenure anniversary. So what happened for years ago the star this journey? So we always kind of, you know, had very stressed about loans and debt and right, right? When we started we it was it was definitely heavy at first we started on a as I estimated it was a fourteen year trajectory to pay off the debt, and we were paying a thousand dollars a month. And so that's how it started. And we started so slow, but what's really interesting is about two years of the forty five months. We did without your plan and teaching and then the second half is when we found you through podcast, and that's when it really got going. So how much of the ninety nine thousand was paid off in like the last two years? So that's what's funny is. So we paid off about ten thousand fifteen thousand or so and the first two years and all the rest of it came after that once we started on the baby steps. Wow. Wow. And your your income went up, but it didn't go up that much right? Just being a lot smarter with a decision making sure you just got intense and intentional. It sounds like. Yeah, man. So you're saying you did like eighty grand into years roughly? Yep. Wow. That's that's killing it, man. Why go you guys? How's it feel to be completely free? So good, so awesome. What do you tell the stress relief is everything? That's that's what it was for us to just to not have hanging over our on our shoulders and just being able to have the freedom and the justification to be able to, you know, spend money where we want to spend it and instead of just going to interest, and we're losing it for nothing. Yeah. And not having this hanging over you. Like, you talked about the stress stiffness in your neck across your shoulder blades. Because it's real. I mean, everybody says it's the weight of something, and they mean that metaphorically, but you know, what it literally has a physical effect, isn't it? Absolutely. And and I was working through the whole forty five months. I I don't think I ever was working less than three jobs at a time. And a lot of it's freelance, and there was times I was up to working five five jobs at a time and just always grinding, and and it was not so much the the hard work with and so hard. It was the stress of knowing like we have to make this much or we have to make more to get rid of this debt, just because of stress of it. So in your world in the world where you're creative. And really what you're doing is an art form. How much does it change your career? Now that you don't have that stressing over you. Well, I honestly it's all about the freedom. Right. Because now I can choose what projects I wanna do before. I was just scrapping to anything. I could. So now, you have creative opportunities to say I want to do this project. Not I need to do this project. So I think that's the liberating feeling we could now we're available. We could move somewhere if we want. I think it's nice to be available for for God. And wherever we need to go to serve that. We have that availability to not have anything tying us down. What do you tell people to key to getting on a dead issue too? I think being on the same page and really communicating where where things are going. I mean during the process, we had a lot of people that you know, would kind of doubt what we were doing. And I think coming back to each other and talking about our like our local made a huge difference. And the other thing was the everydollar app it made a huge difference in being able to stay on the same page and having our budget be easier. Wow. Good for you, guys. Very well done. Congratulations.

Tyler Chelsea Salt Lake City ninety nine thousand dollars paid off in forty five months making sixty to one hundred thousand count it down. Let's a debt free scream. You guys phone skipped out on them. Those gated phones. Oh my goodness. Wow. Congratulations. You guys very very proud of you. Well, done very very well done. Ron is in effingham, Illinois. Hey, Ron, how are you? Nervous. That's okay. We've never lost a patient. How can I help? Well, I've got fifty one thousand dollars worth of old bad debt that I'm trying to settle. I they're all jets. And I'm sixty six years old five thousand on one of them. And I'm trying to sell it. I offered him three thousand and they've come back with four thousand am I expecting too much for that to go to get him down rest way to three different debts will traditionally settle at different amounts are different percentages. Okay. What kind of different deaths are involved here without five thousand dollar on? What is that? That's it's an old city Bank credit card credit card. That's all credit card. Okay. Well, that makes it easy, and how old are these debts? How long has it been since you've paid on them probably nine ten years? Okay. No. There's no possible way unle- unless you just have the money extra money, and you're going to use it to pay the debts in full. There's no possible way. I would pay on a five thousand dollar dad any more than about fifteen hundred dollars. If it's ten years old, and it's old credit card debt. Most of that debt has now been sold to a debt buyer, and they will buy those debts at two to three cents on the dollar. Yes, I understand. And so that means that they have two hundred dollars invested in this five thousand dollar ten year old bad debt, maybe two hundred dollars. And so, yeah, they'll settle for less. They're just monkeying with you. Will not very long. But yeah, I I've offered him free on that particular debt, and they won't do it. You know, we'll just wait to say, listen, there's three over here. I got fifty five thousand of other people I can talk to over here. And when you guys when you guys want some money, and you wanna get serious about your settlement offer, call me because until then there's no possible way. I've given you my offer it's three and and if you don't take off a right now, there won't be three because I won't have it. I'm getting ready give somebody else. Yeah. They I the other thing is I'm also sixty six years old and on my in time is mainly non attachable. Right. I can't get it in and out for that. You're what we call judgment proof mean they can't they can't get at you with a judgement and. Do you have substantial you have substantial assets? I have nothing. I have thirteen thousand that. I. News four just fifty one thousand. Yep. But I don't want that money when I'm saying if you have a paid four hundred thousand dollar house, and you pass away they're going to get paid. That's your only. That's they're they're only upside. And so I just tell them I'm sixty six years old on a fixed income security. You can't get attic is. And this is what I'm offering you, and you should take it while the getting's good get it while the getting's good. This is the Dave Ramsey show. Our scripture today proverbs twenty four twenty seven prepare your workout some get everything ready to yourself in the field. And after that Bill your house. Pearl. Knotting Gill says people with those succeed because they know where they are going. Louis is on the line in Jacksonville, Florida. Hi, louis. How are you? Good. How are you? Thank you for taking my call and happy new year you too, sir. Happy new year. How can I help? So we have been working hard on Beth noble now for for a few months now. And he's looking very good. We're we're looking at cover to get out of that house. But I think we hit while when Lee into you podcast on you know, mentioned the debt on the business. Park snowball, in some cases. So I was in sure how to to my business that because he's quite big. And and I don't know if wait until I finish my personal know that if they how or what? Or what are the odds of business debt? Do you have? And how large is I have to be this is the one that had to be that. He's a real stay beef. I have office gonna that rent myself. And when he's about to fifty so that that's more like real estate that real stay dental cockily. So and then they all the real estate in the same business that I just purchase. And I made these before starting to listen into you if I knew I wouldn't do it. But I ready had the debt to sixty five and he's an empty lot that I was planning to to leave elevated, and and rain that other space for myself to at least to and now there's a lot a little bit over five hundred between both them ensure tackled in my personal debt or well. I think they're both real estate debt is what they are. And how. I would put them at baby step six as far as the second deal. Goes. It sounds like it's got a lot more risk in it that if you are you gonna spend money to develop it. Yeah. And it's a lot of money. I'm that might be just turn that piece of property and going clear that that. Okay. You may not have equity on it. So, you know, but point isn't inequity if you don't do something with it. It's empty lot. It's alligators sitting there eating interest on two hundred sixty five thousand every day until you do something with it. And you're gonna have to spend a million dollars or whatever to do something with it. Right. Correct. So I think you're the problem is you can't do anything with it. So whether it's gonna equity or not, it's I'm probably getting rid of it because I'm not going to tell you to go on the million dollars to develop that we tell you the number one place people, go bankrupt and real estate is development. It may you can make a lot of money, and you can lose a lot of money, but more developers go broke than builders. More developers. Go broke than investors. More developers go broke than landlords. It's just it catches him. And there's just so many unknowns. And every time you touch something it's an extra zero. So you really have to have a strong cash position to do development with low risk. And and you're not that's what you're telling me. So I'm probably turning that piece of property and keeping the other one, and I'll move that other one into a baby step six scenario. John is with me Johnson Columbus. Hi, john. How are you? I'm good. Dave. How are you better than I deserve? What's up? Awesome. I just wanted to stop think, thank you tear came. And especially where great to us when they came for screen last month. Oh, cool. Thank you. My question. I look all the time. I never heard you discuss the option of rebalancing. My retirements on. I wanted to know about that specifically because I've had four funds I have a large cap small cap stock, and then a foreign the foreign fund hundred performs one you know, like four percent for using regularly. And so I feel like rebounding good. Yeah. But at the same time, I don't wanna be shuffling money from the funds that are performing well into that one. And it's you know, not that big a deal. I I do not rebalance mine unless I look up and something just way out of kilter, and I mean like way out like if I look over, and, you know, a million dollars in aggressive and everything else has got one hundred in it, then I'm I've gotten you know, that things just it's over performed everything else for some reason or another and then I'm probably going to redo a reset. But I don't reset every year and move twenty thirty thousand bucks around or something like that in my 4._0._1._K, if I look up and it's way over to where the point that the point of being across the four mutual funds twenty five percent in each growth, growth and income aggressive. Growth in international used to be diversified. And then if one of one of those categories outperforms, and you end up with more in there as long as you've not lost the benefit of being diversified. And that would mean that you're like way oblong in one of them, then I'm not going to bother. I haven't personally bothered to rebalance. It's not bad. If you do. I'm just not all obsessed about the nerd aspect of everything has to be equal all the time. The idea is spread your money into different categories. It, you know, and then and then if it's makes you nervous because it's not so spread. Because again, it's too heavy in one. That's when I would personally do it. I'm not mad at you. If you want to rebalance, if it makes you feel good you like everything just perfect or whatever I'm kind of OCD too. But I just I haven't done it. And that's the reason I haven't done it is the principle of diversification is to spread your money around to. Limit risk. It's not necessarily that. It has to be all exact now, I do it exact going in. But I know the results are not going to be exact my foreign funds. My international funds have never in twenty thirty five years of investing. It's the weakest of the four categories always almost every year to the point. I'm so disgusted. I've even thought about after twenty after thirty five years changing the formula, but I'm not going to. But it's just it's the one category that just it. It's not like horrible. I mean, don't lose money on them. But they just never just never excited about them. And and I guess that's a good thing. It means the American economy is outperforming the other economies in general. And that's what it means. And so you know, that that part of it's good news. And that's been true for thirty five years. So we'll see what happens in the next thirty five Philip is with us Philip is in Atlanta, Georgia. Hi, phillip. How are you? Doing quite well, Mr. good. How can I help? Okay. All right till I am medically retired marine. One time click on clicked on around two thousand dollars a month. I get that for the remainder of my life. So here's what my situation. Look like, I have roughly around seventeen thousand dollars in credit card debt, another hundred and one hundred twenty nine thousand worth of loaned outside of my home, my home, I just got another hundred eighty six thousand and I made a stupid mistake of getting eight car so moving into step two of your process. I I wanted to find out if I'm being too aggressive and saying that yeah. When I get everything paid off in like, you know, five six years what what is the one hundred twenty nine thousand one hundred twenty nine thousand is a cumulation of two cars to student loans. And a another loan from the Bank. I go. Okay. And does that include the new car you bought? Yes. Okay. All right. And what is your household income? Household income is roughly a hundred and eighty nine hundred ninety two. Oh, great. Okay. That's good news because hey, you got a lot of debt. But at least you got a great show. All right. Thank thank you for your service. What do you do for a living? I'm a network engineer dot com. Good for you. Why to go? Yeah. I mean, not counting the home. We tell people in baby step to their dad smallest to largest pay minimum payments on everything but the little one in Tak the little one. And so it looks to me like you've got about one hundred and forty thousand dollars worth of debt give or take not counting your home. You make a hundred and ninety two if you lived on fifty you'd be debt free in a year that doesn't count taxes so you should be debt free and eighteen to twenty four months. Okay. Well, that means you're not gonna have a life during that time, you're going to skirt up your dad gummed spending because you got spend spend money like you're in congress around there. He the stop man, you're gonna have to get that stuff balanced out. You're gonna get killed man. I mean, you make a lot of money. It'd be broke as you are. And it's time for a change. Hold on. I'm gonna send you a copy of the book the total money makeover. And again, thank you for your service.

Well but easy peasy Amazon baby. Okay so those are my beauty items for the APP now. I'm going to talk about about my move. I just moved apartments in case you don't know and let me tell you something. Moving sucks and is very intense. It's and my heart. goes out to all the honeys out there who are going through a move who have ever moved. My heart is with you. I had honestly forgotten. How horrible moving? Because I had moved in seven years but it's a lot there is a lot going on with the move. I also want to extend that out to people who are cleaning out houses for various reasons thousands. Maybe a family member has passed. And you have to go in and confront everything in that house and completely disassemble. An entire person's life life because that is what I feel like I was doing with my move. It was really intense so again. Shout out to all the honeys out there who have had to do that. Basically Lee I You know if you've listened you know this has been a very wild year for be my entire life was reset and I wasn't going to move but then I decided that that I wanted out of my apartment because there are just memories everywhere in that apartment every single item down to the DEL Taco packets in the frigging drawer. Remind me of of you know my past life this life. Now that I'm resetting you know my marriage started in that apartment. My marriage ended in that apartment. It's been a long seven in years and I'm doing life reset honey. I pretty much only kept my to be greatest possessions in life my church and my makeup everything else I said honey. We're moving on okay. Of course my clothes but I got rid of them. Speaking of you know when Meredith Feinman was here we were discussing discussing revolving door closet. You know it's important to get rid of pieces in your wardrobe. I thought I had cute clothes and I went to crossroads. Which is a store out here in La? I'm pretty sure they're nationwide where you can sell your clothes. And then they sell secondhand clothes sort of like a thrift store but they put a lot more thoughtfulness awfulness into the fashion. And like what's new right now and you can sell your clothes. I brought them a huge box of clothes. I'm going to be honest. I there were pants in there that I bought from crossroads this year. I thought Oh they'll be excited to have these genes back right. They didn't take anything for me. They took one fucking wrap dress. It's a very humbling experience to walk into crossroads with all of your closet close it you wear and have them basically say to you. Your clothes are ugly. Nobody wants them so that was fun crossroads. I see you okay. Okay but again you donate and cleanse yourself of stuff. But that's one of the most stressful things about starting your whole life over slash moving out of your space is confronting all of your Shit. We in American Society Collect Shit. We don't need did and I thought I had a grip on this. I really truly thought when I was watching. You know Murray Condo on Netflix. When I would watch these people open their homes up and just dig through cabinets and you could see the shame on their faces? They were humiliated. Like why do I have so many coats so many shoes. What I've so? So many whatever's I won't be a little judgmental I would be like. Oh this person has really gone too far with their crap. I thought I had a grip on this but you know what turns out I did not. I had a lot of stuff packed away that I had forgotten about and I- designated at whole month to move out of my apartment. I thought October that's plenty of time. I did end up leaving town two weeks of October. That eight some of my time. They were lovely trips but I barely got out of there. I didn't know what to do. What do you do? It's sort of like reentering. The dating scene what it apt to I go on Hulu I call to you know. Get rid of some of this stuff. I went old school and I started what I what I used to do. When I moved back in the day I decided to post every piece of furniture piece by piece on craigslist? That's what I thought you should do. That's what I used to do. What a journey? What a journey? I'm telling you I I met so many people through this process like selling everything you own stick by stick. I met dozens of people surprisingly pleasantly lots of women women. I'm I was always when I get the emails. I was sorting them and I would try to choose female names because again you know I'm a woman's woman and I would like to think items would go onto a woman and and also let's be honest. I wanted to feel safe. I mean that's the sad truth. Having people come into your house. I feel safer women anyway. This whole process was a real lesson in supply and demand and again humility. Because you think you have cute stuff you think the items you have chosen in to put in your home have a value. You set them at what you consider to be reasonable price and then no one responds to the ad so you lower the price when you lower the price and you basically are just like you know what. Why don't you buy me some del Taco and get this shit out of my house and that's when it started happening you know what I mean so it was? It's very humbling to watch all of the items. I have earned money to purchase to fill up my home. Sold off for pennies on the dollar but you know what it's it's a lesson honey because furniture shelves lamps. Do they really even matter now. Because I have my shoe DCI my body my mind my loved ones who needs a shaggy area rug okay. I dumped my rug for literally pennies on the dollar and upset about it but I'm trying to release and I also just want to say let's talk craigslist etiquette. Okay for all the people out there. Can I just say that. There's a special section in hell for people who say they're gonNA show up and buy your shelves and then don't fuck and come. I cleared my schedule. I drove across town. I sat and waited for you and there were several people. You want those shelves. I chose you okay I chose you. How dare you? How dare you not come? I see you in hell. Martha banks were bailing on my fucking Lamp Martha and another thing. I sat in that. It's too big for a car I said in that I said you're you're gonNA need a truck or a van honey. This rug is too big and then you shop with your Honda Accord Frank. It's not gonNa hit you wasted. I stood my time. You waste your time. I chose you frank. You disappointed me. Read the ad be thorough. Now and another thing I had to come to terms with during this move is that I bought so many things in my life for the kind of person I wanted to become but never did. I bought a fucking juicer. I said I'm going to be. I'm going to be the maybe that chooses. I'M GONNA make juice every morning. I'm GONNA see my emissions. I'M GONNA do my young guy and I'm GonNa Make Jeez. Guess what. That fucking juicer. Sir Sat in my cabinet covered in dust. I never used it once not once. You know what I mean. Face Reality Bay. I ain't a juice person okay. Same with OUGHTA banking should I had. I had a mixer. I had cute little muffin trays. That look like flowers all this bullshit. I never baked no once this was a recurring theme amongst my discarded items and there was an intense shame I felt while clearing out these items because I'm a cheap ass bitch. I felt wasteful donated them. It felt good to say goodbye. Move on but it was also just confronting the fact that sometimes I would make purchases and not follow all through with them and I'm just sharing this with everybody because I'm assuming similar view of felt the same so I just wanted to give you that now then okay so then. I thought I was done because again I sat in my house and I said I was like. I don't have that much stuff. This'll be easy to move out. I ended up. Oh my gosh I mean. Boxes and boxes and items and is moving them down my stairs down my stairs down my stairs. It came to the very last day I still so it. Too Big furniture items that people on craigslist flaked. They have now been removed. But I had all this extra shit that I had kinda forgotten about. So it's all in my car as I'm recording. This I have been moved out of my apartment a week. I've been driving around like Jed Clampett with my car full of crap and I don't know what to do with it. I don't want to carry it up into the new apartment because there's over to fuck ago I don't want to donate it because I want it still. I'm having a problem here if you see me. Rolling by say jagged. Can I have that a humidifier. Can I have that giant picture brain. It's all in my car. All three ladies listening through the Green Room right now come look get my shit. It's in my car right now. I got all kinds of shit. I'm driving around like a crazy person. I'm having a hard time also. I just wanted to say that I moved. I had movers come one day and they barely moved anything. They moved my television and my makeup Barria. That's it everything else. I physically removed from my apartment myself every single thing. This was a two bedroom apartment. Now you're probably thinking Jackie wide and you have somebody help you. You know what I don't ask for help. I'm learning that it's it's thing but also I wanted. I need to move it out myself because this was a ceremony for me. I was working through a lot of shit while I was doing this. You know what I mean so I did this alone. I did have a couple people. We'll come in and help me. I JUST WANNA shout to my friend Amy. Amy brought me food in helmet carry shelves out and can I just say there's like this little pile Right down the street from my apartment. where it's sort of like the neighborhood hub for Free Shit when people move and I would put my stuff there and it would be gone so quick quick and I would feel joy my heart every time I put my? It's like you out of your apartment. Then you go fuck. I have these trash cans. What do I do with these dirty ass trashcans? I don't need trash cans now. How so I put my trash cans out there? Guess what they're gone. Somebody told them. I'm so happy you know. One man's trash is another man's treasure so my trash cans got taken everything got taken and it felt really good. I put this box that said free on it and it was full of stuff and it was so satisfying the next morning thing I would drive back in. The box was empty. Somebody took everything. I don't know what they're going to do with it but you know what honey. God bless Ya okay. I'm here for this journey so some of you may know about my Mary statue that I when I was back on snapchat a few years ago somebody put a Mary statue in this spot. That I'm talking about the free shit hub in my neighborhood and I grabbed the Mary and I put her on my porch. And I was like Emma accursed now.

Cheers to a girl named Lillian. I sold my dresser to grow name. Sd I saw my rug. We're going Savannah I sold my lamps and nightshade Saami I sold my living or lamp to Rachel H. O.. She showed up she actually showed up and then I stopped making list because I got too busy but for a while I was making list of every single person and because I want to remember them they were all in dirt and stages of their lives. Lillian was moving over boyfriend and I had pink dining room chairs and she was like I don't know if he's going to like the paint. I said you know what if you don't like the paint. Keep walking honey okay. This is part of who you are. And then she'd text me later and said he loves them. So you know little human connections that you can make from craigslist for moving moving. That was a big important part of healing as well. Okay for most of October. I'd been eating pretty much exclusively fast food. which is very unlikely but it was hard because you know I had moved on my kitchen? Stop and I didn't want to cook and I had to eat quick and keep moving. I was in my apartment all day sorting shit throwing stuff out and I would just go. I need food to survive. I was eating impossible burgers from Burger King Taco Bell. Del TACO. That's all I was eating. It was it was really hard and I do not recommend this to anyone. I was being a garbage monster. You know all the trash all items it was a lot okay okay and then the neuroses of moving and throwing out things you can't just throw stuff in the trash. I don't know if y'all know this hazardous items cannot be thrown in the trash. You have to dispose sposa things properly. I was googling. Where do I throw this away where I draw all over the Goddamn metroplex throwing out now Polish throwing out Scotch Guard? It's like what a fuck do I even own Scotchgard. But it's settled over the bottle. Do not throw this away does not. That's all I need to start a fucking fire from me being lazy moving out. You know what I saw was a mess. This whole month was a fucking mess for a in one of the hardest things was My storage unit. That was that was on my patio. You know I opened up my storage unit and I had boxes of my wedding stuff. uh-huh and what do you do with your wedding shit when a marriage ends. Because I I don't know mm-hmm I don't really want them in my new home. I'm not ready to throw them in the trash. I don't want to get rich because you know the Mayor Asiad workout. But they're beautiful photos of my family and my huge and you know I looked pretty fucking good. If I'm being honest I didn't know I should I throw them out. I don't know this was a very hard move There was a day where I cried so hard I swear to God. It was harder than I cried ever this whole year like it was just a real release and it's a very confusing time because I'm very happy right now but I'm also very sad and I guess what I'm saying is if you're ever in that situation I understand how confusing it is and it's okay When you're very happy and very sad at the same time you feel very secure stomach much like you've been eating nothing but they'll talk over a month month which I was also doing so? It was very hard month. Okay the last thing I'm GonNa Leave L. With is Show all the honeys came to my apartment. Show all thirty one of you. It was such a special night we had had so much fun. I got to know so many of you and it was just such a special moment You know like I said this apartment so much has happened in that apartment and it just so it just means so much that I have a fun new memory in that apartment outside of my marriage and everything that happened there that I can look back on and just truly enjoy and celebrate. So thank you again. If you haven't listened that episode the National Department Airman Episode with Darcy Card and my friend Lily. Home was there as well and then you were. GT's convolute chuck and we get a shout. Please GT's Kombucha CIA. Aw they hooked me up intensely I mean. I told them I was like. I'm having thirty people my apartment. They filled my entire bridge which I've been drinking them everyday since every retire. Anybody would come pick up my furniture by the way. Do you like Kombucha. And they would say yes of course. GT's and they'd go hunting. The best brand there is of course and I would give them one. Can I even sold my microphone. I had a wireless microphone back from my days being the lead singer of my pop punk cover band once again you have to confront your shit. I'm not going to be as the lead singer of a man. I think that's just the way it goes. Okay so I sold my microphone my Rockstar days are over and and I said would you like a Kombucha. He said what's that he didn't know an older gentleman I said do you like ginger. He says I love Ginger. I gave him a ginger eight. He loved it changed his life. Life changes life. He is now on the Kombucha Path. So Gt's you are you create a ripple effect of beauty gratitude happiness. Yes thank you again for. GT's they hooked up the honeys Emmy With the natural department show and all the coverage drinking right. Now I'm drinking the fall. Living in gratitude would fall addition honey so shallow to GDP. They did not pay me. I just said I would tell everybody about them. I am commute to influence or so. The last thing I'm going to say I've gotten so many messages from y'all concerned about the humming birds so I was housing some hummingbirds on my ports over ten born born on my porch Over the course of two years. I was running a Hummingbird AIRBNB on my porch to feeders. And I'm telling you. I had the hottest watering hole in Salt Lake. I mean bird yelp squawk I had the highest reviews. It was the dust spot to be. And now that I'm leaving had so many people say are you can leave your hummingbird feeders for the next person. We have to feed the humming birds. What's going to happen? This was a very big concern for me. I have definitely lost sleep over. Listen shed tears over this so I hear you my neighbor. I wouldn't say is the most responsible guy he's in his twenties and he's struggling and I couldn't leave it up to him to do because because you have to really be thoughtful with these clean them out all the time you have to make the sugar yourself. It's not for the faint of heart. I gave one of my hummingbird feeders to a honey at my apartment show. Oh the other one. I gave to Catherine birds my best friend because she has a beautiful yard and I'm going to try and monitor them as best I can but I will say I was at my apartment yesterday for the very last day to get rid of the very last piece of furniture that know everybody gets flake it on and I looked out the window just outside of my officers big Bush with these red flowers all over it and guess what several baby Hamis were in there and they were drinking out of the flowers and that's when I knew that they were going to be okay without me because honey were women we survive. Okay we adapt so we take that sugar way they will find another source and they all were thriving in this Bush so my hobbies are fine. They have a beautiful Bush. They're gonNA find sugar elsewhere. I will go visit them and I just wanted the the humming birds are going to be okay and that was a huge concern for me and just know that okay. That's it yelled a lot. I hope you all enjoyed that. This this is a beauty pageant. Thank you so much for listening. I hope you are having happy. Holiday seasons and tune in Thursday for an exciting episode Nashville. You deserve to be happy.

My Bank Is Pressuring Me To Take Out a Business Card (Hour 3)

"From the headquarters of ramsey solutions broadcasting for the dollar car rental studios the ramsey show. Where debt is dumb cash is king and the paid off. Home mortgage has taken the place of the bmw. The status symbol of choice. I'm dave ramsey your host. Thank you jumping in america. This is your show open phones. A triple eight. Eight to five five to five. Ken coleman ramsey personality number one bestselling author and host of the new book from paycheck to purpose. Clear path to doing work. You love is my co host today. So we'll take your questions about your life your career your job. Which he talks about on. Ken coleman on the ken coleman show every day on seventy five radio stations. Podcast and youtube and We'll take them right here as well and we'll talk about your life and your money free call triple eight eight to five five. Two two five christie is with us in asheville north carolina i christie. How are you very good Thank you so much for taking my call. Sure what's up. I wanted to say thank you because this going for your family or that free including our home and thank you yes So where you are in. We're doing stuff for and we're about to start step five our daughter a seven years old and we're trying to decide between the odd twenty nine or the esa and kind of leaning towards the because by the time she's eighteen metal probably the enough. Because i don't want to pay too much and pay for he pitted So just kind of wanted your opinion on the difference. Okay well to clarify if your home is paid for your baby. Step seven and so. Now you're saying you're continuing to save for retirement continuing to save for college but this is all just wealth-building baby steps seven just become wealthy and outrageously generous. So if you have an emergency fund your hundred percent debt free house and everything your baby step seven but anyway the es in the five twenty in art kissing cousins obviously. They're very similar es as educational savings account. It is only one thing. It is only two thousand dollars a year and it is only for people that make less than two hundred thousand dollars of your household income and it only grows tax free and there is no tax deduction for what you put into it and so if you put a mutual fund into an ese. It's going to grow tax free for the number of years. You can put up to two thousand dollars per year into that and that's it very simple very cut and dried. It can't be anything else. Five twenty nine has a bunch of things under that heading a lot of which we don't recommend a for instance prepaid college plans with some of the states are technically five twenty-nine plants. There's another kind of five twenty nine that locks in the investments and they're frozen. You can't move them once you pick them. They're fixed the entire time. No flexibility bad five twenty nine. There's another kind of five twenty nine. That's a life phase where they move the investments to more conservative investments. Less risky investments as the child ages automatically. I don't want you to do that. I want you to manage the money. Okay the only kind of five twenty nine we have is where you pick mutual funds just like you do in the sap shows are just a like like that you invest in them and you completely control them they will not move unless you move them and no one else is going to do it for you. And you're in charge. Okay just like the asa now so once you've done that if it's that kind of five twenty nine the differences in the five twenty nine. Yes not many both are after-tax investments both grow tax free both allow you to control and move the investments inside of them as many times as you need to and within the mutual fund families particularly is a great idea. Okay so all of that's the same. Your you do not have an income limit of two household income limit of two hundred thousand on the five twenty nine and you are not limited to the two thousand dollars per year most five twenty nine up to ten thousand dollars a year some even more so if you want to put more money in or you make a little more money that type of five twenty nine does exactly the same thing but allows you to put in a little bit more and deal with a little bit more or like if you're playing catch up and you make three hundred thousand dollars a year you want dump some money and that's fine but if you got a baby and you make over two hundred grand and you can drop to grand a year into it. You're gonna be just fine you have. You have a lot of money of one hundred fifty thousand bucks probably in there but if it's in a good mutual fund by the time that babies eighteen and like you said that's enough to get start making some really good choices. You're probably gonna have some other wealth if you want to add to it and you're going to be a really really good shape so very well done. It's an interesting discussion and it's great to get ahead of it and it can. It really is because when you start to think about you know if any investing advice or thinking about you know putting money away in watching that compound It doesn't have to be a lot and that's a wonderful example on how you can. Well i mean one hundred fifty thousand dollars for one kid is more than enough for any kind of quality education. I here looking at today. I don't know about twenty years from now. Well that's a great point. That's a whole other discussion. Yeah what a. It's a good discussion have really is because higher education. I think it has problems. It's very susceptible right now. There's no question th- this idea that they just get to keep raising. The price forever is over. I do think that is over. I think you're gonna see the causevic a splintering. I think you're gonna see more and more organizations training people for the jobs at hand. Google already doing this. They'd come out and it's very very clear move into the marketplace and you're gonna see other large companies come alongside of them so That should be plenty of money. We hope I think it will be. But that is a separate prediction in conversation but the cost of college and and higher. Ed is going to have to reckon with because i think this this student loan. Of course we got this great documentary coming out barred future. It's going to absolutely punch all this right in the face and i hope tipped domino. I believe barred future documentary could be the tipping point that finally. I believe we make this a more mainstream conversation. You know we all were pretty much in agreement that the student loan program is an epic failure absolutely agreement that this unfettered flow of money out of washington to these universities has caused them to without without reservation rates price price. Russia price so the supply of cash has driven the price up unbelievably. And then you add to that the pandemic comes along and now they want to charge just as much for you sitting at home. That's right now. There's no football games. Yeah yeah now. There is. But i mean now. There's no campus experience now. Now now there's no this or you've got all this woke stuff and other stuff going on to the point people. Don't they're not even going for education anymore. We're going for the cultural experience right. And nobody wants to pay two hundred grand for that anymore. No and swollen endowments right. We got all this money sitting over here and we're not helping kids that need some financial eight. The narrative is just really snowballing purely. Yeah it's not. It's not going to go well for higher ed And i'm not against i read and we're not no we're not we're proponents of it but once you'd be sure and check out borrowed future. It's going to be anywhere that you want to plug in to see a paid a documentary It's coming out the in october thirteenth thirteenth. Hope that's a friday. no correction. We do we have that right. What is it what are you saying. Fourteen fourteen okay. Okay good close enough. You'll be able to find it right there in the middle october. Yes sir borrowed future. It's a big premiere.

I applied for a job with a salary range of sixteen to eighteen dollars an hour. Which would be a raise from what i'm making now. I went to the interview. And i know i did well. They looked up how much i should get paid for the job based on my credentials and it came out about twenty five dollars an hour. I'm afraid that their budget may get in the way of me being considered for the opening. This job is very specialized. And it's not something that everyone can do. What would what. I should be paid. Disqualify me from getting the job. So what he's asking here is hey they looked it up and they think i'm gonna want twenty five an hour but the thing because you're going to get twenty five that's right. So what do i do it. So here's the deal. It shouldn't keep from getting the job. Amy if you communicate properly and the fact that you've already they've already told you well we think it's twenty five hours. What what you could make you gotta go. Hey advertised sixteen eighteen. That's what you told me. And i'm thrilled to jump in at eighteen. I'm ready to go or whatever they offer. I wanna prove myself. I wanna grow. I wanna do this work. Don't let that bother you. I think this is a good fit. You gotta communicate that. And i think that humility but just straight up honesty the you want the gig and tell them why you want the gig. Don't let their worries in their fears. Or what you think may be their worries and fears fit into this. You just tell them. I want the gig and i'll be thrilled to take the gig. So here's the thing. The kids my kids years ago. There's a thousand years ago that they were teenagers feels like but they had this thing what they did and they called it. Awkward turtle right and that was if a conversation is awkward. Yeah what do you do. Oh this is awkward. An awkward moment right right and you know that's what this is the right and the best way for the elephant in the room to magically disappear is to say there's an elephant in the room rate. It's so true f- yeah. Yeah he goes away. Here's the elephant. You guys looked it up and this job pays twenty five an hour. You don't have the budget for that. You're afraid i'm going to leave because somebody's gonna offer me twenty five dollars an hour. I'm saying i'm not doing that. I'm taking the job. You need to hire me. This is a done deal. Quit your threaten. You say that poof. Yeah there's nothing to be tense about here and just how they believe you on that or not but here. Here's the thing people are paying some ridiculous figures. Yeah for jobs for people to move now. I'm hearing just some bizarre numbers on things. Oh out there just to get human beings to show up to work. Yeah it's gonna blow their mind you tell them you want the gig. Yeah they're gonna look at you like you got horns growing out of your head. You know we get in trouble. Sometimes i boy of mary twenty three years coming up on twenty four years and the biggest trouble i've ever gotten into dave with stacy as when i try to assume or try to anticipate what she's thinking as opposed to just talking to her plainly or asking her questions when i try to anticipate or try to analyze. Something is out there boy. We get this thing all worked up on our head and it's not that big a deal. Just tell them. I want to gag or so much. Low hanging fruit. The here for that i could come with. There's no way that you know what's in stacy's head because it's way smarter than yours. That's comes to mind as i. You're absolutely right. That's just one of the myriad of reasons wash. Oh my gosh. No i mean. The thing is if if something is weird stressful The the the demons around this they don't like light. Yeah and when you shine light on it they run for the corners the roaches run for the corners as soon as you turn the lights on and awkward conversations. Have that sense to them that you know. This is a difficult thing for me to cover. This is a hard thing for us to talk about. This is a weird thing for us to talk about But by talking about it it loses all of its power so true and many what we think is going to be. Awkward for us is an awkward for the other party so just be an adult. Have good posture. Good spirit about you and shoes. I might be thinking she's gonna leave and take the twenty five dollars out of money offers love. So why do i wanna put her in there. Only loser in just a few months. I want you to know. I've already thought about that. And i plan on staying. I'd be honored to take this position. I would like to know how. I can even add more value over time to where i could make twenty five dollars but you'd be happy to pay me that because i made you fifty dollars. That's i mean that kind of a conversation is really powerful and as a follow up on after an interview. That would be pretty strong. Yeah they'll be in a hurry to sign you. I think so. This is the ramsey. Show the lobby of ramsey solutions on the debt free stage. Evan and liz are with us. Hey guys how are you welcome. Where'd y'all live. We are just north of detroit in michigan. Oh wonderful okay. Like rochester or ferndale. Perfect cool well. Good to have you guys. Welcome to nashville and into a debt. Free scream how much of your paid off ninety three thousand dollars in twenty seven months. Hey good numbers and your range of income during that time We started around eighty and finished around one thirty. Good what are you guys. Do for a living Liz works in the home. And i work in Systems administration lot of automation power. Shell kind of thing who. It computers. i can tell that kind of stuff. Yeah i gotta ask what what led to the big jump here. That's a big jump. yeah We got gazelle tense At some point during their journey we got to the point where we couldn't scrape anymore off the budget and head to just get a bigger shovel So how'd you increase your income fifty grand. Yes i know it sounds crazy. Certifications and mixture of that and getting the right job just found a few chain shops employers so just working away so she got qualified a promoted good there. You go nice good work. Wow antique got the old company to pay for the certification. They paid for some further education. And then he leveraged that. Wow well the search are very valuable. Epecially well done good for you guys. What kind of debt was the ninety. Three oh a little bit of everything but mostly student loans loans overwhelmingly students. How much of it was student. Loans say eighty five. Oh wow hardly anything else. Yes yes yes. We had a car. Loan chine- medical own. Oh yeah pay how long you all been married nine years. What happened twenty seven months ago two years and some change. Yeah we finally had the I've had it moment you've talked about Where we're making deep very decent money and all of a sudden all that was going out the door to other people and it didn't make a lot of sense to us to to keep that around so we listened to Your book on a road trip. I did for working. It just made sense. It clicked it was within like spitting distance. Oh we could do this like. It's not far off thing that only superheroes can do like we can just make this happen. That's a good line. I love that yet. some depth. There's not just for superheroes we can do this. Yes and you are superheroes by the way but just the same. So you came home from the road trip and say liz. I've been listening to audio. No i said we should time for financial peace. You said well we had heard about it before but our good friends at our church. He was leading. The class. And i was like fine. I'll do it all that made it okay. And so then we took a class together. And i felt for the first time in our marriage we were really aligned onto what our plan was going to be financial peace university. Your friend is teaching it. You joined the class okay. I'm always interested in this. I mean i've been doing this for thirty years. But i'm still. It's always intriguing to me. Because i know how my brain works when i'm going into something like that. I walk into that class. I've got all of my cynical shields. I mean cynicism is a spiritual gift for me. It's just like i i was. I'm thinking there's this is greasy. This is slimy disguise trying to get my money. And and i'm going to be pretty cynical. You might have been that jaded but but you still have to not know what you know. It never is what you think it's going to be. You know what i'm saying. I think it's one thing but it was something else. What were you thinking it was going to be. And what was it i think for me. I thought it was going to be kind of this. Like health wealth prosperity. Like just trying to make yourself rich for the sake of making yourself rich. And i think what really sold me was your vision of generosity to be that it just had. It's not just about you. it's about it's so that you can help others I used to be a teacher in detroit before we had kids. And i just like that really resonated with me. This is an important way to get our situation together so that we can do more of what we want to do for other people. Yeah yeah that's changing that changes the nobility of it to say it's about others because it is but it changes the spirit on on how you're not going And so you just come home from the first class game on. We're doing it. Yeah i mean it was overwhelming at first when we ran our initial numbers i think it was like in five years at this trajectory. Then we'll be debt free and yeah. But we just saw the lord's faithfulness. I think every month just like paying off more than we even anticipated. We'd be able to pay off in little ways. And so i think that motivated us and as we saw our on our spreadsheet or do it just the time kept decreasing and decreasing evidence. Fun which bradstreet quirk. It's going faster than we thought. This is going good. Yeah builds up emotional psychological spiritual momentum hundred percent while i want to ask you this. You talked about that overwhelming. you know. there's just so much to take in right and you go home and you put the i plan together. Five years boy. That feels like forever right. But at some point you get to that class and i'm just wondering how much the community of other people going through it. Help you not be so overwhelmed with the climb. You're not alone. Speak to that and what that felt like going through it with other people. Yeah absolutely. I think the transformation in our marriage was. We're at a point where we're both felt like we're dealing finances separate and then all of a sudden we start having these conversations and i think the same thing happened within our community church where we're not having to deal with separate struggles but now we're very open with our numbers. Very i mean televised our numbers. Everybody right We can be opened with that. We say hey we struggled. Hey we never talked about finances first. Eight years of marriage for seven years of our marriage and we were. It wasn't good but we didn't have shared values we didn't have these shared things and it opens a avenue vulnerability that's powerful sense of freedom that you're not defined by this like it's okay. This doesn't define who you are as a person. Yeah there's a stain on you. There's a brighter future removes the shame. Yeah that's good. Why did cow guys. Heroes man look at you. How's it feel to be free amazing so good. Just yeah worth the sacrifice was it was worth it and worth it for kids and Just we have hope for them for the future So we're really. It was the weirdest thing you did to cut spending down to nothing. I don't know about cuttings or lived. Really minimally but heeded some funky things. Her side gigs before he got the job promotion. Okay yeah i think. The weirdest thing was scorekeeping at a table hockey tournament. Score keeper man score caper table table. That is on your resume right here. Man that's fun of yes you love. We don't call us and tell us there's not a way to make extra money the manmade one hundred dollars scorekeeping for this is awesome guys. Yeah this is assets. They're my kind of folk. I like that. We got a copy of the legacy journey for you. That's a copy that that's the next chapter in your story. Moving onto baby step millionaires. You're on your way without a doubt. And congratulations very very proud of you. Also a copy of total money makeover. You give away to somebody get them started. Ach that audio book got you hooked and then you end up in financial peace university and now you ended up here ninety. Three thousand dollars lighter all right. It's evident liz. Detroit michigan area. Ninety three thousand paid off twenty seven months making eighty to one thirty countdown. Let's hear a debt. Free scream three. Two one lisa church in their group at financial peace. Everybody cheering them on. That's amazing yes. Well good community. Got to have people around you eleven. Well this is the ramsey show. Our proverbs twenty two three the presidency danger and take refuge but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. Dale carnegie said be more concerned with your character. Then with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think. You are in a social media. Age ken that is a good thing. Right there to read again yes. It is be more concerned with your character. Then with your reputation your character is what you really are while you reputation as merely what others think you are out there. You go just like that. Turns out dave to that when you actually are a person of character your reputation to really good. Most of the time generally but with social media they. Oh you mean you could take out. Yeah sure sure sure people take shots. That aren't true but those me about this place. Yeah but a stranger doesn't get to say what they think. Dave dave ramsey's reputation is in my opinion stranger. I don't discount that you know they gotta know you. Anybody knows you friends. People were close with you. You have a reputation as what everybody hears and says out there not very different. That's all i'm gonna say. Okay that makes sense. You know you're a person of character. Your reputation with the right people takes care of itself. Yeah i gotcha okay tyler. Once a matter yes. Tyler's in state college pennsylvania. I tyler how are you doing great. How about you better than i deserve. What's up yeah. So my question is related to business and checking account A business owner. I've always operated my business out of a business checking account along with the business debit card as business guild up over the years. My expenses are becoming a little bit higher and more frequent and my credit card. Only has a twenty five hundred dollar limit And each time. That i go above that i got a call into the bank and each time. They're really pressing me on the business credit card And just today. When i went to get they actually denied altogether and weren't going to let me get unless i upgraded to there. Is this credit card. So i guess my question is What do you recommend that. How are you gonna get business being like a multi million dollar business and all that recommendation there. it's time to change bronx dude. Yeah that's what i'm thinking. yeah see. They got confused about who. The customer is the customer sitting in front of them telling them what they wanted and they start putting demands on you on how you're going to use your money in order to have the privilege of doing business with these dufuses i'm outta there man. The spirit is pitiful. Yeah i don't care even if it wasn't in violation of what. I teach just the way they treated you today dude right. That's what i'm talking about so here. Here's what we've had to do. We've got i think lord. I've lost count because i don't keep up with daily. I used to be real concerned with it. But i'm not anymore. I think we've got one hundred fifty people in debit cards out of our thousand And a whole bunch of others that have access to the numbers in order to do orders with you know around here for business purposes. We've got a bunch of them. I obviously have a business debit card on this place. And the revenues here north of three hundred million a year. So i have low tolerance for trying to use that card and it not buying whatever the flip i wanted to buy. Okay yeah i mean so. I've we've had discussions with the business banking unit here and said look my card. I'm not. I mean you can put ten thousand dollars twenty thousand dollar limit the number of times. I'm going to buy a car on a card zero anyway. So i don't really have anything i don't don't buy stuff like that all the time but i also don't want to not have access to money when i've got millions of dollars in your bank that will piss me off because of your little debit card rules but So we've had on my personal debit card from the business. had them give a special dispensation. They should do that for you. And you know twenty five hundred is ridiculous not to be at least five and the and you can look at it and you probably surprised the number times you go above five unless you're doing a bunch of travel or is unusual anyway. Yeah yeah so unusually low so yeah you need to change banks based on that spirit. But you know we've got different People inside this be you know. For instance if one of our live event producers is going to book a block of rooms. You know we're going into a high it and we're gonna take down one hundred and fifty rooms and they wanna card will. Obviously you know. A daily limit is going to be a problem on that. So you know we and that's how we use our debit cards here. So we have some interaction with the bank on a regular basis but we also have a higher than normal limits on some of the daily amounts and total amounts on the cards. Obviously the cash has to be in the account to coverage as a debit card That's not what we're discussing here. But i think more than anything else. What you're discovering is you have a bank that doesn't understand your value as a customer and you need to find one that does value by the way we did change. Banks and one of the reasons was the old bank. That i've been with for a thousand years got bought up and bought up a bunch of stuff and became much more corporatized and became inflexible. Even with an account are size. They started giving us a hard time on all kinds of different things. We're just like you know what i'm not negotiating you people you're just flippin and bank. I mean there's one on every corner there's a lot of them would like to have our account to have your account tighter. Go get somebody else. what are you thinking. i think. I think you're absolutely right. You know it's your money and these are somebody who made a decision on the fifth or six or fifteen twenty fifth floor and I think the spirit is absolutely It's wrong they don't want to help you grow They just got their rules. And i'd take off. I'd go talk to some other bank and go. Hey here's the deal. Here's what i'm looking for. And look on monday. I and Interview interview banks just like you would walk one of our. Lp's i'm getting ready to hire you from bank offices. Yeah i'm a small business. You good enough. Yeah statham away. Can you let me do my thing. If so i'll bring my money to you. What's happening is is that dealing with the branch manager who's got pressure on him to meet the quota. Yup that a certain has to move a certain number of credit cards credit cards a month and he's got people breathing down his neck. He's got a quote he's selling encyclopedias. Door to door in these bankers have been reduced to us car salesman. Yeah that's his car salesman are much better people and so sorry about that used car guys. You guys are excellent compared. But i mean they've been reduced to sales people have quotas. I mean if you work in victoria secret and you don't sell a lot of small underwear. That's not what they get great gauge you on you can sell no small underwear and work victoria as long as you sell as long as you saw their credit card. Because that's what they want. I want you charging small underwear. Okay where we were going with this. I was oh wait. I was telling you this is it is. It's all they are in there in the credit card business. There's always i mean it's just there's just nothing there's there it's just it's the same thing most of these companies. Yeah you go in a department store why you think they're pushing the card on you. They make more money on that and they do stink in merchandise. It's become that credit card game. And that's what these guys are doing stupid bank here is bank deserves a good firing i it. You're fired plenty of banks. By the way. I tell you what you know i i would go interview the smaller banks you baddest bank of america. I'll bet you should. I asked him a betcha. It's bank of america. It's the way they act a big bank or bigger. Yeah it's not. it's not a small local by am small. local bank would actually care what you think.
