Some of our most popular episodes are when we bring on people who own restaurants or who are chefs and my guest today. Is kind of a combination. She's not a chef. She's married to a chef. This is Susan g young park, and she and her husband are the owners of a very unusual Taco place near the campus is called. I think I'm saying this right Revolucionario? Is that correct? Yes, it's a revolutionary on North African Tacos on. At one, four, three, six, West Jefferson, boulevard currently were only open on weekends, Saturdays, and Sundays for pick up orders only from noon till three, and actually I am a chef to learn more. Oh okay. Okay. Yeah. Well, you know, I definitely want to do a deep dive. Into, your establishment. But you know since we're recording this in early May and is still during the whole shutdown, and this is a restaurant I gotta ask you because we'll put this out relatively soon. This episode I have to ask you like, how has it been for you guys with the shutdown with the limited time that you're open. How's that going? It's been very, very asymmetric call. Because I also have. Started a nonprofit at the end of February and a lot of people keep asking me how I knew to start early with the Asian. American. Specific food. Bank. It's because I am an Asian American person. Who? WHO also owns also Asian American owner. And I. My restaurant is near USC SO I. Get to talk to a lot of. Asian, American, and Asian international students. So my restaurant very community driven. So. As an Asian American person business owner and somebody who speaks to Asian American students in Asian international students on a regular basis. You know I could feel the of sacks of you know, the the Wuhan Virus China virus. Right one international news broke in in December, and I can feel it affecting my business to I can feel it affecting my business, my in store business just tanked. I made it by with a lot of lot of catering more because they kept asking my customers helped me out catering orders than. And then a lot of a Chinese American students in particular in Chinese. International. Students who come to my restaurant. Started telling me. They just felt really anxious and they had a feeling of like just more isolated, and also I also do a lot of tenants advocacy work I've been in touch with CCD in. Chinatown. MOM since last year I helped him out occasionally with things at the request as I could see for myself, I mean. Koreatown didn't get hit that bad. Early, a chinatown business in Chinatown just tanked. You know at in December and January some restaurants. It was like ninety nine percent down the streets were empty. There's nobody. And then my friends from the San Gabriel Valley started reporting. The business was down in the San Gabriel Valley. And then it rolled into Korea town. So Koreatown was hit a little bit later. By declining sales and then in my restaurant to. So January usually means like a huge surge in business. And a lot of my customers are international students, not as Asian international students, but international students because my husband is also he's a French born Algerian Berber and Berbers indigent people to North Africa. So we also have a lot of European customers in African customers, and because we're North African Taco restaurant, we also have a lot of Mexican Latin next customers so very international. We hear a lot of news from everybody to because we're, I'm a owner operators on that restaurant every day that it's open. So I'm in touch with just. So many different communities. And just business was just was not picking up and beginning in January I started. Reducing, my restaurant hours drastically because it just wasn't worth it. It just wasn't worth it to old. You know just to get all that going and it was like this is not what any you know So then I started my food bank initiative I started I started my bag initiative before a stylish on nonprofit. Net Song early I. Think I met her Nebi. Rarity. A month after I had started my brown bags for all skid row initiative. Because wins, virus news broke of a mysterious virus mysterious You know that's a scare scare tactic. In China and it's highly infectious in know we live in a global village? and. Experts have been warning about pandemics for a long time and America wouldn't be prepared for one. So my first thought in January was to start my Brown Dad's for everyone initiative for skid row because in an era of pandemic, who do you want to help the most? I, I mean, who should you be healthy? It's the most vulnerable people were most exposed. Then it's going to be homeless in the House to people. And who are the poorest of the poor, the an housed I mean, it's the black residents. Elderly residents are skip Vo. So I, the Brown. Doctrines, round that for everyone initiative really took off fast because the idea was catchy. People could wrap their mind around like Paquito, Brown bag lunch. You know. So I, had neighborhood associations like four hundred members hanging. Why? Why can't all of us do like ten Brown bags? That's four thousand bomb. Gad's already

He told me what he really misses the handshake walking side by side the opportunity to finish the meeting grab lunch afterwards that's what he misses.

Google's new bell to start the school day
"Well. That sound you heard is Google's new family bell. It is meant to be a signal. That is time for school the start or maybe dinner's ready or maybe it's time to walk the dog. It's a new feature of the Google. Assistant may sound small potatoes, but I think it's kind of fun. I'm Jefferson Graham. You're listening to talking tech, the ideas that we associate these signals with certain tasks that we do every day, and yet you can sit up a reminder on. Smart Speaker. But all you get is it's time for your appointment. And that's it. This is a sound, an audible sound that tells the kids. Okay. Be Serious. The school bell is ringing again, it's called family bell and you'll be able to find this on the Google Assistant. APP no need for an update. It's rolling out. You will find the family bell section in there. That's one of the new features and to get school timed start, you would say, Hey, g start the school day or Hagi School's in session. Some other fun things that Google has is the ability to broadcast and reply messages from the Smart Speaker just to specific rooms or devices which was previously impossible. If you wanted to broadcast before it would echo from every device connected even if you wanted to alert just one area. So. This is cool. To set up this feature. You would use the command, Hey, g broadcast to room name, and then follow up with message. For example, Hey g broadcasted living room. It's time for homework

Creating TV shows on an iPhone
"This pandemic, we're seeing so many TV people recording from home and you're probably wondering how doing this. How are they recording on an iphone in reaching the broadcasting? Facility, we've got rich to mirrow here. He is tech reporter for Channel Five. Ktla in Los Angeles and he remotes first TV stations all over the country and he's. GonNa fill us in rich. How you doing I'm doing fantastic. Let me just first say a I think it was like my little personal dream to go live from my home for all of my stand in one place, and do five hours of live shots every morning for all these TV stations, and I thought. Wow, wouldn't it be more efficient for me to just have a home studio and do it from there? Well now I've been forced to do that, so my little dream has become. Become a reality, but I'll tell you it's been kind of a nightmare because it's not very easy, and if you've been watching me on TV folks that have been seeing, it have seen kind of an evolution of me going live from home. Because KTLA's been fantastic, they said hey do what you need to go live from home. Whatever and get the equipment you need thankfully as tech person. I have a lot of the equipment that I need to do this, but the bottom line is at this point. You only need a smartphone, which is the IPHONE and some software and a microphone, and so we've used to piece of software at KTLA. One is called. And the other is call TV. You and both of these things work in the same way. They take a signal from your phone, and they broadcast it back to home base, so it's kind of like using skype, but it's managed by the TV station, so they can manage in the quality way better than what you would get on an off the shelf product. Does that make sense does? The, let's let's go through. Let's go through the process, so you're doing the morning show it's seven. Oh five and they cut to. They say okay. We got rich with his tech segment. Now now you're sitting in Los Angeles at home and you've got the IPHONE. It's ready to go. Take me through the process. Yes, so when I get up in the morning, it's. It's Kinda like it's. It's like lighting up a little studio so in my spare bedroom which I've used to be the kids playroom I cleared it all out, which actually has been very bad, because the echo has been the biggest issue with the studio, and the problem is normally, and this is the other issue that I've run into normally when you're setting up a home. Home Studio. What do you do you figure out what you need what you have and what you have and you order the rest on Amazon. It's there the next day. Well. Guess what during Kovic Times? You can't just get next day delivery from Amazon so it has been a challenge to set up a home studio because I can't order the products that I need so. So, what I have here is a ring. Light that I used to use for live shots when I used to do like a podcast from home like facebook. Live so I i. Put that up and the ring. Light is kind of a big circular light that goes around my phone. My iphone sits in there and then underneath the iphone i. have another Tripod with A. An ipad on it and actually went to best buy and bought the Tripod Mount for that jobe amount, and then for that I've been using that as kind of a to watch KTLA and to also use as a teleprompter and so I. Did experiment with the Tele prompting APP as well? I didn't think it looked good on TV. I thought my eyes were a little shifty. So for me. It's easier to actually just kind of memorize some of my lines and read them off the script when we go to video which you called voiceover. But the microphone has been tricky. I've tried a lot of different microphones. A lot of the reporters at home are using. either. The apple included ear buds, and those work, really well Otherwise you have to kind of put a microphone into your phone, which is not very easy because professional microphones don't connect to the iphone unless you have a conduit, so I've been using a board I used for my podcast to connect the microphone into the phone, so it's gone very complicated Jefferson. A? What microphone you connecting theoretically into the phone? While so right now I'm using Oh my gosh. I have to look at my my headphones. Hang on. Audio Technica, and so this is an audio technica. It looks like one of the microphones that sports caster would use. It has the microphone that sticks out, but also the nice big headphones so with that I can hear what's called IFP so the other tricky part of this whole situation is that it's not like a video call where you can not worried you have. What's the return from? TV In my ear, so I have to be able to hear what the anchors are saying to me in my ear and. It gets really complicated. That's usually what we call be. We have this little cable that runs to a box that we listen to the programming of the station on, and when you're there live. Obviously you can hear the anchor talking to you, but when you're out in the field, you have to connect to an I've be box, and that's also another challenge, but these programs like I mentioned the. And the TV you, they allow you to pipe in the programming. Cheer IFP. I'm getting a little in the weeds year for the consumer audience. It's okay, do you? Do you pick up those programs in the APP store or are they Do you get up some other way we'll see? These programs are something that the TV stations pay a lot of money for it because they come associated with receiver so when I actually am broadcasting I'm broadcasting. Allied receiver we have at Ktla
Philadelphia Phillies, Fans Gearing Up To Finally Open Season On Friday Vs. Marlins

So now there were at this point. Let's not mess it

Building Power Among Youth
"Thank you for joining me today? How are you doing? Great good good, so tell me about. What is all girls? Everything ultimate frisbee about. Why do you guys do? We are a leadership program and we have been brought together through ultimate Frisbee. That's how we use the together. We play Frisbee there, but we also learned there. Yeah, age up is not only really about like social justice. Education I feel like the people who work for Asia or that are in the age of community invest in the young people of Color in the key in the South Seattle community, and is really rooted around ultimate Frisbee, but we're also all have like a connected passion for social justice, wanting to make a change. In providing for our community, ultimate Frisbee, amusing to be honest with you, you know when I hear ultimate Frisbee. I don't think social justice education. A matter of fact with a lot of sports I don't think social justice says a case. I know that there's athletes who will take a stand and say something, but you know I don't i. don't naturally think ultimate Frisbee and social justice education. So how do those two combine for a job? Well I think when you think of most forts you're not. That's social justice as narrow really the first thing that comes to mind I'm pretty sure like no one ever combines like anything of the sorts of sports. But with ultimate Frisbee, since it's kind of a new sport, it's kind of like there's room to test around in like. Build new kind of community I think and that's kind of what happened the South End. There is like coaches all around the south Seattle that kind of came together to build. What age of is like Sam? Terry and Hannah Kawhi at least uneven. It came from it being such a tight knit community with those people with those players that they. They felt safe to talk about those types of topics like racism sexism, and so it started with a small group of people I think it was like tennis people and they had their like initial program of coming together and talking about social justice, and it kind of evolved into something more where everybody was willing to learn and grow together also play Frisbee together. Yeah, right? Hey, we're we're. We're here to have fun and play Frisbee than these other bigger issues that. Are Impacting us, or we care about if I'm understanding you correctly and you guys. The folks who started this felt comfortable enough with each other to be able to have this dialogue. And how how long ago when did this start? Two thousand nine at. It's even late, two, thousand, nine or early twenty ten, because we're GONNA have our ten year like Oh, yeah, two thousand nine. Yeah, doesn't you about the have your ten year anniversary? Okay? Amy was mentioning his early before we started recording that. There's there's different program elements that you guys have within eight up. What are those programs in? Can you describe them a little bit for me? We have a girls program that happens. December January, and then right after that ends the boys, program starts because we use Jefferson, community center. And will have an office upstairs, and then we use the big room in the middle, so we have to have the different programs right after each other, so then like we don't meet other programs different from you. Have your girls programming your voice program other than the gender? What's the difference in having to rather than having a combined group? I think the only difference is the ideas that we would come up with so last year. I was a girls program intern. That program was mostly about mental health for. That whole program year. And then. My other intern. Together Dion we came up with a different workshop at the end. So you have maybe different focuses. Do they come up naturally from what the group is asking for kind of what they're all talking about or do you guys have a curriculum for lack of a better word were year directing? You know what each group is is focusing during that timeframe. It used to be like. Every week was a different topic like went to his into sexism, but then we felt like one day is not enough to cover that topic. Then along the program years we would talk together and be like Oh. Should we just do one? So then? We can actually cover it, and so people can learn from. It were from now on. We're doing one topic or each year,

Teddy Roosevelt's great-grandson says remove the statue
"Last month, New York's Museum of Natural History announced that it's removing a statue of President Theodore Roosevelt that many find objectionable. It's a decision that has the full support of Mark Roosevelt, president of ST John's College in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the great grandson of Theodore Roosevelt. The subject Gatien of other races. By those of us of European origin. Is our nation's original sin. That sin began soon after our arrival on this continent and his bait tragic part of our history to this day. If we wish to live in harmony and equality. With people of other races. We should not maintain paternalistic statues, the depict Native Americans and African Americans in subordinate roles. A statue of my great grandfather. Eared our Roosevelt. In front of New York's Museum of Natural History does so that it is being taken down. Some argue that we should not erase our past and it's such statues, Khun B. Invitations to examine and civilly discuss complex issues. That is disingenuous. That is what books and classrooms therefore not monuments. Monuments are designed toe honor people and to keep those honorees and what they stood for alive in our collective memory. We're all of us in this country. Bound together by the tragedy of racial subject, Gatien and continuing violence and multiple other affronts to black Americans and other people of color. Those of us with power and influence who say we wish to do better are diminished. Fire stalled failed. And woefully insufficient attempts to actually do so. Those with power and influence who will not even acknowledge these wrongs. Are an embarrassment to the nation. If we wish to allow for historical nuance, and I do To continue to recognize Washington and Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt for their very really accomplishment. While also allowing that they like so many of us were complicity in our nation's original and ongoing sin. We must start by admitting that we've failed to acknowledge the depth of that sin. And immediately remove all memorials and statues honoring those who fought a civil war or otherwise worked to perpetuate that scent. And then we should get on with the desperately needed work of up roading, systemic racism wherever it is found.

"Yeah I bought one of those got back into. Got Back Yeah. I loved racing. Then then I. I've been racing every it's crazy that you got a top ten overall at saddleback obviously place you know well and everything else but still great resulting in two years later. You're totally done. Yeah you got a ninth and then two years later. You're done racing. That's it and really it was. It was a hard swallow because I wanted to race and at the time I was really getting better and you still. You got to think what's realistic. Yeah what is really GONNA have? Wha- right what's going to happen here right so I. So let's get ninth overall. Does that mean I'm GONNA get a factor? I probably not no and later I'll say and you know That just think Mickey got a factory hundred one to one hundred. I could have been you. Yeah I out but I was. I found out later lots years later. The Suzuki was never going to hire me now. Never because of what caused really not going to happen really. I wouldn't have thought across. People are for the most part you know your speed on. The track is the determining factor a lot of times. But but I'll say that they had a different time back then. I mean and I'll say you know my wife's Japanese okay and she could tell you that Japanese are pretty racist against most a lot of people say not. Shouldn't say this is a blanket. Generalize but for me at that time. They weren't in the early times or different. Yeah yeah no matter what and I knew that there was a point where you know that the bikes hold you back so much so I never going to go win a couple of races and I knew that was not going to have. Yeah so for me. I and doesn't bother me because I have. I had a great life. What what writing for Mitch and what happened to me in those days was something that I couldn't couldn't have slated better. Yeah it was perfect the way it all fell the way everything fell together. Oh that's interesting was you. What do you think your greatest race was was there a local racer so racer Deanza Cycle Party? I won like five race in a row. They're five big purse races. Yeah and made up just a killing was johnny territories. The answer right wasn't always ending do. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Holly was in here last for the show talking about Indian dunes. Yeah yeah all of those guys wrote there and see. That was always a thing you had the sand guys like and then there was they had the one. Gorman okay because I went to Gorman a few times before yeah but it's a little bit Saint Mary. Yes okay all right. I never quite understood that being from being from Canada. I never quite the. Yeah the the movie studios did a lot there okay. And where was the ends of them? The answer was like Marino Valley Reno. So when you're going let's say sixty freeway okay from riverside young out in the hills out there. So that's where was corona raceway? Right right off the freeway that golf course you can see when you're on the fifteen going towards Mitch's place right before the ninety one which way on the fifteenth year in West on the fifteen okay so north southwest. You looked writings. Excuse me in the ninety one ninety one ninety one. Yeah West Look West. And they're on the right side there was. There's a horse. Yeah that's where it was. Yeah Okay Right. There was no yeah okay. And so corona ratio. It was amazing and the whole time he lived in high desktop keefer. Preston Jefferson High Desert true. Yup for sure that's funny.

Bama over the years and crisp close and all these guys race dhec Dot Com pulp twenty zero to save with the folks that race tech and helped Dandy Jefferson back in the day all so so then he started bothering you and like back then. Of course you know surgeries wasn't what what it is now so I was taking shots every two months going to on So I could rise couldn't couldn't couldn't impossible. What do you remember about a young Mitch? Payton like what are you? He was the first of all. How many times would you guys have done things back? Then that would get you arrested today. Like one hundred. Yes he he just had no fear. Anything just like you know it. Didn't it just didn't matter? We go into restaurants and do crazy stuff and act like immediate. I mean stuff that now I look back and go. Wow happy but then it was fun. Yeah admit Choi was around. It was a maniac. I mean Troy Did short painting when you met him or was he. Yeah he's racing and starting to paint. He lived in a garage and corona okay and paint a helmet painted. All of this stuff for us. Mitch would give him to paint. But he had no business Mitch Charlie Race Razor Fun Guy. Was He always kind of like out there? A little bit okay. So it hasn't changed that but he was a great starter. Always START UP FRONT. And then somehow like beer would kick in because the night before he probably was out getting the hamlet a little and pretty soon troy's going backwards but he was always out front early. When does he show you like this thing? Called Ero visor like and you just go. Whatever did yeah he he he he came up with some mean he had some cool stuff but he had some weird. Those visors must have made so much money. You you're probably forgot. We had them all of our helmets. so Mitch. Hard worker smart guy. Just I a little bit your sure and I mean well ruthless. In a lot of ways we had he'd have screwdriver fights everyone so where he get mad and he'd sling a screwdriver like in the wall. Like pretty close to you. He never did to me because I think he was scared of a little me and him into it once up at a split Pea Anderson. Okay come back with a race and he was doing his usual. Dickin- around doing something stupid. He wasn't supposed to and. I said look you do that again. And I'M GONNA throw you over that fence on. Offense was right next to the free Bob where he goes. You aren't going to do that. Bob He did it again. I picked him up out of his wheelchair and I pushed him over the fence and I took his wheelchair back to the van and left him. That's Awesome Orleans twenty when you're calm and not being idiot. I'll put you back in your chair. Stay there I don't care there's so many stories about paying back in the day head dares like the nothing for him and troy. We're always dare each other. Do some stupid. They stole some Saad from jump or something right for the East right front where they needed grass role sawed up. And you would think like somebody would look at the you know literally. It was in front where everyone was watching. What are they doing it up on rolling into and then they couldn't take Mitch to jail so he had to drive. These cops made him drive with a cop escorted him like huck dumb in same stuff like that. This is the of pro circuit and obviously husqvarna. He you know he attached himself. He's getting you supporting everything else. Did you think you'd be successful as he is today? Did you always do you? Did you see the genesis or the roots of this guy obviously eighty-six he gets haunted? Pipe and things blow up from there. But you're there before then are you well. I know that Jodi from eight would always tell him. You need to stop work on these Japanese and Mitch is he. Now they're you know they're got a new Bal and this and that and you know finding this and obviously you see what happened but I figured Mitch would be successful because he was going to work and you know just like today you see the guy he gets hurt. Tanny leaves it ninety one and the mechanics for the race team. They I mean there are hard guys. They're working at all there for one Golden. That did you ever. Do you ever remember saying like Oh. I'm going to have a team one day or though he'd never know never got that far. When did you meet jody? And Jimmy Macanese guys back saying. They kind of helped me a lot. You weren't dude. You were like as a kid growing up in Canada. You were in the magazines ton. Yeah they loved you yes. Yeah and that helped me you know. I think I look back. Sometimes I go. I didn't want to be known as the black kid that's racing wanted to be known as a racer but that helped me get to where I could have just been another guy when you talked about speaking about being African American or black Speak does it. When did you start seeing racism like you said not back then but is this pro days like this kind of stuff where your local and national to you like that one in Florida people that seems odd given and what are you doing here and Like at the superman spectators racers panics but spectators. Yes motocross back then the pits. You are in a kate. Know this but you didn't have vans and stuff around. We'll the end. Yeah Vince Cage and you had a four by six foot area. That's where you put all your toolbox. All your stuff was in that area and people around you are around the outside and people could walk up and say something. Yeah and people would snip but for me. Just hear it a little for me. I learned a long time ago because my dad and what my dad grew up in. I mean I'd I grew up in the dead. South went through all kinds of racism. The real stuff well like diving in a pool. Everyone in the pool gets out except for him. Oh really yeah me. Kinda stuff you hear about this but it's unbelievable for me it meant nothing gets as I don't care I mean 'cause I always try and tell myself that there's only a few people that I put stock into it. They say something about me. That will hurt me otherwise I don't you know who are you to tell me some wasn't there another African American guy. What was his David Maclean with Maclean? Maclean Robert Mrs there. He they had an article in one. Racer X I think. That was a while ago with this guy but David Maclean was really good. Yeah I remember being. Yeah so the League is they. Let you test them. Bikes and stuff. You got to be around him and and that helped me a lot of doors and and I'll say like now I look back and I would tell kids today that you have to. You have to speak about yourself. Yeah and I was never that guy. Yes never that guy to do that. Yeah I always figured if I did good enough is GONNA help. Yeah that's the way it is. Yeah and I was never good at it. I didn't want the spotlight on me and I just wanted to go do my thing and and you know. Hopefully someone take notice but you can't be that way. Yeah Yeah Yeah Well. The guys would have helped you for sure. Yeah as far as that goes back right Interesting to they loved you man. You're all I remember all the time interview and he's coming back knee hurts. He's coming back. Yeah so the last results in the vote was your ninth at Saddleback. Five hundred good result. What happens after that? Do you keep racing. Have I think that was the end of Pro Circuit? One thousand nine hundred five I if I remember correctly raised some local stuff about Honda. Where your needs your knee? My knee was bad. Now by that time had had a couple of surgeries to and it just would swallow up and just get really bad and and like you said. The technology wasn't so great yellow it The doctor said look. You gotta quit so race. I think. Eighty five a little local eighty six touch eighty seven. I got a cow and wrote it a couple of Times said doctor had done. Yeah you you're having trouble walking interviews and I'm like I got to be done and so I just said and I just like. How old were you at that point? I think I was twenty three. Yeah so I was. GonNa say he's Kinda young to be done raising. Yeah and I just decided like I just gotta be overtime as lulled or not but even still twenty five twenty five got to be done and at the time I hit start working for my friends. Oh you were doing down short. Wow after when I first got hurt you were at that place from eighty four until until I left for Husky. Yeah Oh shit yeah yeah But so that was the actual source of income to the point where you're very and But for me like I. The doctor said you start riding bicycles. You GotTa Start Walking. Don't run you know for me. That's what I did. I started riding bicycles in and trying to get my niece stronger. And it's been better never actually had a surgery on again. I know I've had. Oh more than Oh okay. So I've had to on the other one. Yeah so But Karla like meniscus Forty L. Unease just the usual right. Do boost up right But I didn't ride from that time. Eighty six I think I wrote the Elsinore Grand Prix Gareth Myles Garrett called me or my gear called me and asked me to do some with some race that rex and John Mara did it was like a VAT race at Paris. Okay and I think was one thousand nine hundred ninety three. Yeah and so I went and got a Yamaha from him like on a Thursday. And then raced. It had no idea arm pump like Oh yeah and got killed and I was like I'm over this now. Mara race down the world vets number one on one hundred troy. Yeah and one. I remember like ninety ninety. Three and then I raced again in ninety six. I raise the Elsinore Grand Prix. On on thousand five he called me and said hey you WanNa yes sure.

Appreciate an also spoke to have my in studio guests for this one on one podcast former Southern California. Hot Shoe Factory Husqvarna Ryder. At one point I believe now working backward Husqvarna in the marketing end of things Andy Jefferson. What's up Bro? Show how are you? I'm wonderful how `bout you are coming in. Yeah Hey we had a good ride today on beautiful. I've really loved it. Yeah you're a big mountain bike guy road bike and mountain bike or mountain both out and we ride at lunch every day. I try to put miles in and just have a good time with it you you. You put a lot of miles and when you were racing. Were you a big trainer or is this something that came later. No we always. I always trained. I was because I I think for me when I was racing. I had to train because I wasn't talented. Let's say I mean so. I had to be in better shape and luckily for me I love training love running at the time and I love bicycling did a little bit of everything so from years of motoring. How is your body now? Like for my body's okay. My knees are a little bit. Yeah a little bit suspect sometimes but yeah my body's pretty good too too bad you were trying to new Husqvarna e bike. That's coming out in the fall. Our balancing that. We have some tests bikes over here. They just playing around with and and you know firstly because you have the intense. I and I'm not much of an e bike guys. I WanNa go to a guy as a lot of miles on them and got to ride with you today and see how the differences maybe in the versus what I have and and Yeah so we're just doing some testing on the bikes Yamahas. One coming out too. So yeah I think that's an avenue were some of the. Oem's are looking at you know. Hey what can we do here? So I think it's the next step for people you know you have a dirt bike and maybe you don't WanNa go out train. Yeah and you want to just go ride and to me. The e bikes the perfect. I mean and I'll tell you this is only my third right on it and after my first to ride I was kind of like I don't really don't but after today had a great time. Yeah we we hammered some trails. Pretty good and perfect if you do that and you made that comment when we were stopped you said out here on a regular bike. You'd be suffering. is unless you're elite elite. Guy. You'd be suffering if you on a regular bike and this just puts the fun and that's exactly it right like you're still getting a good workout. Think my heart rate today was like one forty five or something. So you're getting a good workout and you're able to go much further and have more fun and then you know you're not suffering and then tomorrow you can go back and ride again. Yeah didn't suffer. Yeah and and still you know we all try to run our heart rates and we probably all do too much heart rate. Doesn't have to be high to get a good work. You need to be at a steady PACE PACE. Today was perfect. Yeah like my buddy Paul per season shape and he's got a he's got an e bike any runs it in trailer boost because he has so much fun for me. I'm trying to lose weight. I'm trying to get better shape. You're in great shape so for me. I run an echo because I want to suffer. I want to lose weight. I WANNA grind right but there is that option late in rides and we had one section today that I hated and I told her I hate it. I just bumped up the trail. I got through the section. That's uphill technique techy rock stuff. And then I was able to go back down to ego and it's a perfect example of why he bike works great right and like. I said just like you're saying is for those people that you know. You're not out there. You don't you're not going to try and be next triathlete the marathon guy and all this. Cr- you just want to go ride and have fun. That's what is right. Husqvarna marketing for you. How long have you been there for been well? I was with the original. Let's say Husqvarna owned by BMW. Three years I started there in two thousand ten okay and then the company was sold to the corporation or Peer Industries owns. All of it was sold. I think in two thousand thirteen twelve thirteen and then so I moved over there so now if you WANNA count total. I've been there about eight or nine years. Which is I always think it's funny because you made your name riding Husqvarna against Japanese brands. When they were no longer the Great Husqvarna. Everybody grew up with and you were alone guy on Husky and then you end up working for years later. It's a full and for me. You know an like to be back with Husky and just the linear to the name. That was when I had a chance to get this job. I just said I have to do it right. I and it wasn't like I had my previous job for twenty seven years. I didn't have to go anywhere and I made pretty good money. Yeah and I worked for Office Products Company. Okay HOLD COPIERS. Fax Machine that kind of stuff and it was a friend of mine's a my childhood friends families visit early. Then they sold out okay and I didn't have to leave but when this came up and a guy your roots. I don't like I even talked to my wife and I said look. I really WANNA do this. I'm I'm like Oh copiers and I'm over this right now and I want to get back into the industry and luckily I got a job. Yeah so now when they were switched from BMW ownership and by the way those BMW LOOKING. Husqvarna were underrated. Yeah that's cool. Look W out. Yeah but when they switched over. Ktm were you nervous about losing your job where you come to you like. Were you stress in a little bit? Not a little bit but not much I I was and let me say for me and it's weird. I guess I've been in the right place at the right time. That's basically what it was. I was the guy at the time I did all the parts for Husqvarna and I'm GONNA call it. Bmw Escobar all parts all accessories. Yeah all the after sales so all that stuff had to be moved. Yeah so they I mean in a way. They couldn't get rid of me wherever I was lucky. I so I did all that. I made all that move from the stuff from it was up in New Jersey. Oh okay all down to Ohio Imon Tori and stuff away. That's obsolete all that stuff so then I came into the office and then it was like what am I gonNa do right John Eric. Burleson came to me and says hey we we need you to continue with this for now but we need an offered manager for the Husky Road team. And I'm like do you WanNa do that. Great Heck Yeah. That was last. Oh that's cool though. I don't think I remember you doing that. Yeah Yeah I mean I did it for Kimmy Wagons Timmy. Andrew Delong won the National Enduro Championship for the first time since nineteen six ski so since like Terry Cunningham Terry Alaska Paul. I pulled out exactly. It was pretty good and but I got to champion. Jacob Argue about one a championship from that year and I did it for like a year and a half almost two years and but the hard part was at the time I was still doing the part so There was one year that I traveled. Forty three weekends out of the really. All your wife's just at Fox the facts and copier writing and so that was kind of tiring and then it came up. They needed immediate guy because they didn't have anyone so I said sure and Timmy. Was there became the team manager or off road and I went over to media. How do you like the media things how do you? How do you enjoy that? I tell people every day. It's another one of those things in the right place the right time. It's the greatest job in the company. I really yes like today. I get to talk about dirt bikes bicycles. I get to do that every day. Yeah and someone pays me or I get to go riding right my boss. I can ride all. Yep Go to the he. He inspires us. He says go to the track and go ride. You're not talking about Moen Tom Owen. He's inspired you. I don't know if those words us with Tom Muskie. Yeah he's he's really a he's a different guy but he's one of those people like he makes me laugh. I have so many Moen Stories. Katya when you get in with him. He's the nicest guy from the outside G I get him with him. He's like your job is to go riding. Yeah take people right so as much as I can. I take my guys. We variety whether it's street bikes or dirt bikes out ever the we all know. Katie must've owned by the same company. And certainly had some Husqvarna people yell at me over the years for because I'm just like look Katie. Anderson Rides a Katie. And so what? We don't need to get into that. But how much different? How much differing philosophies or or divisions are there between Katie? I'm an Husqvarna when it comes to media duties for you you in the KTM guy. I don't even know well it would be and that's the thing now. I'm the Guy Oh you are. Atm Guy Gas Gas Guy. I'm the Husqvarna one okay. So there isn't really any now. There is now so I felt like when they made. Roger like the overseer Katie Mogo Husqvarna logo and. They'll soon have a gas gas. I would imagine I felt like when they did that with Roger. They relaxed their philosophy of like. Hey we're two different company right and I think at first they were trying to establish what what Husqvarna was going be. Yeah and it was really. I mean we were adamant we weren't allowed to park next to each other. We weren't I mean. Even though we work together you see till but outwardly wanted to make sure some kind of separation. We couldn't talk about the Waikato's thing that would happen. Somebody's I got a few things and I said I don't care right. You can't fool me. That's right donges by Jason. And you're one hundred percent right it is. It's the same but our philosophies in marketing are today are different wholly opposite so with. Ktm is like the Color Orange It's ready to race. It's in your face. It's I'm GonNa Win Barn Husqvarna completely on the other spectrum of where the fun guys like. We want almost boutique. We WanNa be fun we want. We don't want we're racing WANNA win. There's no doubt about it. But by the same token we want to go on the desert and take a bunch of Ri- and that has nothing to do with racing. And when you look at Jason as a as a start versus you guys like a different Dean Wilson Right. 'cause WE TRY TO BE WE WANNA be different brand and and you know the the thing that you run into when especially when you have two brands like this as you start getting a lot of you know eating away at the other brand my this brand. We're we're trying to stay away. I I don't want to go after a CPM person. I want to go after Honda..

"Okay so it's an a day on talkie text chatting red-green is GonNa Grill Jefferson Graham. I'm in Los Angeles and Shannon is in the Washington DC area. That's right we're both quarantining. So Jefferson I've been thinking of you under these quarantine conditions. I just know that you're a person who is constantly out taking video photographs. Interviewing people podcast. How have you been holding up in just about six weeks? Quarantine Rough I. I went out last week And I went to the beach and I photographed and I got a lot of grief from my mother and my wife on it but I really wanted to. Just get out again. The idea was that I started this little video project of just pictures of waves period. Just waves no talking no music nothing but waves and I read the two beaches rope and so I went down and photograph them to mice shock. There were hundreds of people. They're having a good time mid week. So that's not the image that we've been been told but I really missed out there with a camera and I can't wait to do more of it and and sit in a restaurant that's what I want more than anything else. Yeah it's been really difficult for a lot of people and I think it's probably I wanted to know if he felt a little concerned or how you were feeling when you were taking the picture to the people on that really crowded breach. What was it like for you emotionally? It was I thought there it is you know and But I stood far enough away that I wasn't getting very close. The football game through me seeing those about fifteen young boys playing football tackle football on the beach did not seem like the wisest thing in the world to do right gotten into wanting to be attacked journalists. And what was your first assignment but had a huge impact on you in the world attack reporting. So it's a two fold question will first of all remember that when I was thirteen. I got my first camera and my first guitar. So that that set me down the path and I've always been into new technology. I was one of the first to have a VCR so thirteen hundred dollars. I spent for VCR and loved every minute of it because I was a TV fanatic. A Mazer and so I covered td for many years here USA Today before I covered TV. I covered the birth of home video of at the Hollywood reporter. So I I was the cable. Tv video editor and so is in detect. They are on all laser discs in all the new things and so I said I got tired of covering TV. There was a beat open for covering tech. I raised my hand from the first day. I did something. I don't remember what the article was but I knew that was it and that was twenty years ago and you've never looked back. Never looked back some of the highlights was going to interview the founders of Google. At at a time that I was so comfortable in my body that I went to the interview in green shorts in Orange.

And sorry about that. That's fine. I feel great. Shame do you shouldn't you. Shouldn't this another opportunity to hang out and glorious surroundings like our. According to a hotel room in Los Angeles I will say to be beautiful sunset Tower Hotel one of my favorite places in Los Angeles tonight. Beer it's nice hotel got. We're like got a desk cover with the towel. Yeah but I appreciate you coming back and doing this man having so you and I talked years ago and at the time you're the west coast editor of Gawker. Her and the reason I wanted to have you back was shortly after you and I talked you left Gawker and I've been watching from afar far as this whole other career happens and I don't understand it at a really I don't really know basically all I don't understand anything about TV writing. And I don't understand how you make that transition. I don't understand what's similar and what's different. So that's what I'm hoping we can talk about but I was wondering if you could start with like how that I move happened like you were. Journalism was working for you. My experience I to be honest I barely understand it at this point. So so. That's the caveat but I really enjoyed my job I really liked working at Gawker and I had been talking with the guy who's now my manager because his name's Jermaine Johnson. He emailed me in July of twenty thirteen after this. I did this satire piece about the culture of white violence yet amongst teenagers. And I went on Chris Hayes and and did like a spoof of air on the Cristina show and it got a lot of attention and one of the people who now to Germain Johnson who reached out to me. I feel like we should just very briefly. Let people listened to clip of that. Okay okay cool. It's funny you know there are people are going to tell you that. It's just a few bad apples if you look at the video the L.. You can't say this whole group. This has nothing to do with white people. It's just a few bad apples. What do you say to that to that? I say that if that's your actual belief in your living with your head in the sand I used to live in New York City and would occasionally go to hoboken New Jersey Saint Patrick's Day parade And there were so many young white men. They're vomiting sitting in the streets urinating in the streets getting in fistfights in the streets. It was yeah. I've I've seen it myself either. College dorms you can go. What do every other room and the long there are people but uranium sean reached out and said have you ever thought about writing for television? I think you might be good at it or like this piece of of yours and read some other stuff that I'd written and I had sort of toyed with the idea of writing for TV and film but I you know if you're not in the world is you said it's very difficult called. It seems incredibly in solar and it seems like there's a lot of barriers to to getting into it. I didn't know anybody who worked in that field. Had that been an ambition of your Zelic part of why you looked New York can move till I know that I mean for me I would say the like you know there's more but like my literary like heroes or like James Baldwin and John Deehan just in that you know. They took the idea of writer and and looked at. It is a very very broad terms and so they they would write a novel and then they would go right piece of journalism and Johnny Mike already screenplay at the end of that first interview we did you. Were talking about that. And you're also like Graydon Carter owning owning restaurants. Yeah exactly exactly and so like the this idea that like you have a toolbox and you can do a lot of things with that toolbox instead of just this one thing was always subtractive to me. And so while I was like I'm a blogger at gawker right now Ambition to do other stuff on. TV was one of the Had No idea how to do it. So this gay-rights unique mounted on Chris Hayes. Read some other stop. I think maybe you could do this. Yeah and then what happens so we met up for coffee than we decided that I should write a SPEC script so I just just went off very very slowly wrote this script. This drama pilot called. Forgive me father that I if I go back and read it and I think I would really hate it it. I can't I can't bring myself to read the scripts that I've written because I hate them so much but it's and it took me a long time that we met in July sent him the first draft draft of it in January twenty fourteen and he had it for a few days and unlike Friday of that week. Got An email from this guy. Michael Molly. WHO's a writer and actor? He's the host of guts if you remember that show guts. Sure Yeah So. He's among many many other great things he was. That was my first introduction to him and he asked was doing the show called survivor's remorse and asked if I would come be a writer on that show and I quickly called Jermaine and there was like who did you show that script to like. I'm really not proud of it. I think it's Kinda bad. Why are you sending out to people and Germaine was like? I didn't show it to anybody. This guy muster just found you and so I asked her main if he thought that I should take the job and he said that nobody he was like nobody cold calls you to write for TV. Visha like that doesn't happen so I highly recommend you take that job but it was like a full-time Gig. Well I mean it was a full-time Gig. As far as like it was the first season of the show show so but it was a limited order of six episodes. Six half hour episodes to job was going to be thirteen weeks. And then there was no guarantee of a second season after that so I was nervous to make the leap just because I really liked my job at Gawker. I felt like I was good at it. I felt like I had. I wasn't famous by any means but I had I had established rush. People would come to me to ask me to write things for them. I didn't have to like cold email. People send pictures really a lot and so yeah you are established and I assume assume also like making decent money. I was making the most money ever made in journalism and I was making more money than I was then I would be making his TV writer. Because I wasn't ah wasn't allowed in the guilt at that point so I was making most called neophyte rate and so my weekly pay was actually less than what I was just in case. You weren't picture where you are. You're like you're the stump that the totem pole sits on the totem pole. Managers saying like this doesn't in happen. You have to do this. Yeah did it feel that way too. You know because I didn't know anything about television so I didn't realize what a unique opportunity it was so I was like I don't know I'm still kind of nervous about it but I sort of waited in my mind and thought that I could go back and do journalism if I wanted to. You know stupid. Journalism is going to be around forever. I could be a solid. Journalism is going to exist forever. Like this isn't going anywhere Eric this. TV thing doesn't work out. I could definitely go back to Gawker. Like where's GAWKER GONNA go..

The food mix of continental indistinctly new world that makes the Thomas Jefferson claimed as distinctly American Virginia. Hams sweet potatoes corn born in Accra. Chris Pippen apples prepared with a French flair for Cossiga techniques and recipes sauces. He'd so enjoy enjoyed during his years in Paris. As an envoy of the newly United States prepared alongside French ingredients almonds anchovies cheese and raisins and nectarines Koreans in musters of varying shades. In Tang dinner at Monticello would started for. The guests would often find their host already in the dining room. It's walls painted chrome yellow. Jefferson would be reading a book pulled from the shelves by the fireplace philosophy. Zoology architecture texture religion politics the natural scientists who still very Jefferson. The contents of the books would spill out into the dinners themselves. He I love delivery table free-flowing conversations tails well told vigorous debate ideas presented in refined all helped by the wine that flowed live freely to shipped over from Europe or does and Maderas Chianti riesling grapes. That grew on fog hung hills that roll down to the Rhine by the pictures on those yellow walls. Copies of old masters Grand European landscapes alongside American ones Niagara the natural the bridge harpers ferry. Just as grand. We're meant to start the conversation valued so on travel on geology. And Trade on America's Carr's places and its place in the world because these dinners always so very Jefferson. We're so American by his design shooing the British formality. It never ending courses rule bound in ritualized. Hoity toity instead. Appetizers main dishes would be laid out on the table. Diners honors could choose what to eat with. What in win when they wanted more more courses more French wine. There were more of Jefferson's designs in the dining room in Monticello were amenities of his own. Invention special dumb waiters by which bottles editions could come up from the kitchen in the cellar or be sent back down special. Missile doors and the walls that would revolve would feel like magic and reveal shelves with cakes and pastries plates. To come or go guess would marvel at. They're hosting genuity the some grumble later in their diaries. They didn't appreciate having to get up and serve themselves. Jefferson would say that the presence of servants would disrupt up the rhythm of conversation the free flow of ideas among free people in free nation. While he and his guest spoke on poetry on liberty and as is the shelves revolved as though by magic is the dumb. Waiters disappeared down below. His diners to be interrupted were overheard by the enslaved people working below or behind the revolving walls the people who had shocked the corn and time the souffle chip the ice had called it out from the Ice House in crafted the brick from which was built it stacked them according to their masters design. Who cleaned the plates in stoke the fires and who had learned proper planning from James. James Hemmings an enslaved man. Jefferson brought with him to Paris so he could learn French cooking and bring it back to Monticello when he returned to Virginia where he lived with his sister. Sally Allie Jefferson owned and fathered children by whom he also owned new catalog. The winds Polish the silver slaughtered. The pigs hung their bodies up to dry work. Made the dinner out of sight out of mind so talk of freedom could flow at Monticello which was so. Very Jefferson Deficit.

"Jefferson lived here at Monticello to him. It was more than just a home and according to some historians it serves as a kind of architectural autobiography. The name Monticello means Little Mountain in Italian a fitting description of the location where the self taught architect chose to build his home construction on the forty three room mansion began in seventeen seventy shortly after Jefferson was first elected to public office. It went through many designs and redesigns and wasn't finished until eighteen own. I the last year of his presidency Jefferson was influenced by the designs of the late Italian architect Columbia and his travels to France inspired him to add skylights and the famous Dome Room Jefferson who values privacy left the house surrounded by trees he did clear enough space for several gardens were the avid horticulturist room more than two hundred fifty kinds of vegetables and herbs aw Jefferson once said I am as happy nowhere else and in no other society and all my wishes end or I hope my my days will end at Marcello. His days did end here on July. Fourth Eighteen twenty six exactly fifty two years after American Independence Jefferson left instructions that his gravestone should be an obelisk and he also wrote his his own Epitaph Hugh was buried Thomas Jefferson author of the Declaration of American independence of the statute the Virginia for religious freedom and father of the University of Virginia Jefferson who didn't even been mentioned being the country's third president clearly didn't want his work at Uva to be forgotten.

right hi there how to this day we play on twenty th street right by their house there you go twenty eighth street everybody we got out I don't know what is pop do because because you played for a few coaches he just he just there is no excuses right there is no excuses and he is he's he's like a drill sergeant that you love right and I would not be the player that I I grew the even later in my career without him teaching me in fucking whooping my ass and bill faulk and I I just got navy he's Oh yeah he says full service on you that's what he's saying he's serve you and you know what he comes from military background you know went to the four so he's a very like do your job no fucking excuse and then he's also behind all of that kind of military he's a brilliant mind and he's a he's the president with a GM and then he's in then the coat so he's bringing in his players if he does he famously wave Stephen Jackson right before the postseason couple years now because like he has that power most coaches would go to a president and it's like ell if you're not getting along it's the postseason we don't want you know he is he is the judge jury and the executioner so he controlled he's the one that dictates how much he's going to pay you do you play harder for a coach when you do respect him on multiple levels like that or do you just need to go already knows his basketball shit and that's it well you you you go in there with a lot less questions and that's why guys have struggled lamarcus Aldridge you look at them onto Rosen there's a train position when you're successful earlier on your career and then you show up in San Antonio it's like hey we appreciate everything that you've done to get here we respect your talent we have you here but this is what we're going to

done B.'s but we got a bigger bigger menu here right and Steph it's best what's different there and it takes a little bit of time to adjust because not everybody can adjust like that no because you

Sunday yesterday the Gavin Newsom the other side I'm the bill four years out it's four years out right I think this is the raiders thing to ever to because it may it like it's going to change guys because now California's GonNa have essentially its own league is the NC double A. steps up while this is one thing that they don't have an address that there's other states with similar bills so these other states are now starting to propose the bill in California everyone thought cornea quote unquote was a bunch of dumb hippies when they legalize marijuana for for medicinal use at fifteen years ago and now half of America's doing yeah legal right away and there's good and bad things to it but like what they're basically saying is like Oh this kid over here who is a snowboarder can have a youtube channel make me off of his stuff and be on a full academic scholarship this kid who was playing for this university who has to do all of these extra things can't get a job can't doing is ooh can't do anything when news his likeness in a video game on selling his Jersey Se you would see so many Bush jerseys in the stadium and I'm like he's not of course give them a fucking gardenia what's tough is like understand it's like you know Larry Scott the commissioner yeah of the pack twelve you know he's the highest paid commissioner in college sports like almost six million dollars a year yeah and that's not even the SEC the the he's making six million dollars a year and you know and they're talking about like these kids that might make X. amount and understand their only in college

you know you're actually at a deficit no BS legally oh no you're not networking the same as a normal kid right and there's a lot of different conversations going because people have like Student Loan Dad's stock when you saw Tim Tebow do his rant about like how he he is how he is totally against that I know a lot of athletes came out with like tell him this this this law this law isn't for you and get that and that's the thing and I think we've lost a little bit of that in this country not to get too crazy but understanding other people's views and respecting other people's awesome cool when it's time for you vote vote no but like and that's fine I'm not gonna like Tim Tebow like what the fuck do you where's my fuck yeah so I don't I don't I don't mind that but I think it's always good to listen to other people's opinions because you'll just learn more we don't have to get into the Republican Democrats I'd like Yo listen to what they're saying some of them right and it's like you got to find some middle ground and I understand what T. Bo sang but I also understand the other side coming from a kid whose parents were too odds you know I could never ask for money call my parents if any way I would like to like one hundred bucks homes in two hundred and fifty bucks in these little bitty things that if I were to do anything I could risk my eligibility right and then like like my roommate in when was it. USC He was on the school volleyball team. I couldn't buy him lunch no I could be anyone else lunch yeah by the way. USC got into a lot of volleyball trouble because they're coach their coach was a part of the scandal that thou hundreds of thousands right like illegally recruiting pr saying that kids were recruits this is like from he was he was on the bench but like it was yeah it was like from three zero six God you're fucking we usually the Arizona days though yeah I mean so when you're playing basketball which again Phoenix Okay Yeah Love Phoenix some of the best comedy loves three towns I grew up in Lindow Nice but not like not Arena Glendale Glendale Phoenix Glendale yeah like maybe ten minutes from the head mall so when everyone's like everyone's Glendale the stadiums like now that name aitor window the giant Toaster yes there's mazing yeah so I'm I'm I'm a west side Phoenix so that must have been extra sweet to play there yeah they won the National Championship in ninety seven and I was a junior been in ninety eight I'm not panning out great and just not making the transition I still to this day I'm like how did Miles Simon not become here's a great college player gray gray caused by one of the great 'cause player in his generation and that's one of those things like this great example this is a guy that won a national championship could have been a first round pick decided to go back to school and still they lost in the elite eight to Andre Miller and a great team and they were number one in the country and he was first team all American and gets drafted in the second round sprains his ankle in training cam and just never got a chance this guy turned down millions of dollars right turn down millions of dollars and if he could have gone to school he could have made a couple hundred grand on his likeness could have done some stuff that could have shut them up further what do you say to the guy do you want guys that go stay in school if I know that I'm making fifty grand a.

Yes yeah and by the way great shirt I'm not it's like you don't get all the DVD's hey I mean yeah I if there was a halloween costume it said pedophile God reading rainbow guys my favorite shirts and now it's not take a look reading rain uh-huh along with a little Pied Piper dislike whistling through flute somewhere Lavar Burton is just yeah so the snacks they had in the back Brennan Jesus course they'd like I didn't realize arrayed was like like granola bars they'd like everything back there so this is these celeb- game and like on walking by me neither ray where we got the same body but like it was so much even for that so I can't imagine those games so postgame stuff because burning so many calories but like as a retired player Riley we restrict but you're two hours of practice in like not even just running but the physical contact that you're good earning calories and and so for me I work in New York primarily right doing ESPN and Brooke Russia. Thank you thank you very much but I think about like a plane like six hours so it's like they just sit there here's a meal like more drinks some snacks and you're like your six hours watching movies and television shows yeah you're just like yes give me more food in that manning passing out like dumbbells to people like hey do some curls somebody was like well you know one thing that I've done my travels I try not to eat on planes that's fucking next to impossible six hours food prep and bring on L. A. New York flight especially like a red red is so you say you prep food bring sandwich that's adorable I don't I don't prep it bring it to eat it at the kitchen and every deal with reading rainbow shirt kid duct tape in the corner there you caleb and it's quiet Ah what who would you see like obviously shack comes to mind is like one of the guys who could just eat anything because he was burning so much stuff and still but like appetite was a certain guys that burn that many calories but couldn't go to town because their bodies just weren't adding up now there's a Lotta guys right there's a lot of guys tablets yeah your metabolism the older you see that when guys are super young they spend their whole first part of their career trying to bulk up you look at Jaanus is done with Braun dead at the the second right but then all of a sudden you see them get later in their career and then they try and lose weight right because it's that pounding and you're new to slim up Dwight Howard is nice skinny as he's ever been trying to get some of that lift back you're trying to lighten the load on your joints so it's like you just have this evolution of guys and you see it now because we watch it much for thirty years you guys are super skinny because they'll get drafted in one thousand nine hundred and they spend that first part of their career trying to build wait Jaanus as buck and a huge Jack Jack is that that's just the evolution so do we all have hired Tom Brady's trainer and then they can play Robert Kado ice cream I'd rather do I'll just accept Aziz time I'm not doing avocado now because you because according to your wikipedia page and I and I would like you're not you unretired right that was the guy retired the sample we retire retirement I want a championship that lasted a good forty eight hours sure because they told me they were amy more money to come back and I thought we'd had I thought we were going to be the best team we win a championship again fucking Kevin Durant went to went to Goldens now happens do you guys around the league talk the same way we saw on like the talking head shows everyone's like do you join the guys that you're trying to be or see this I was not I'm I was never a great player and I think that's more or less good claire very good player the NBA a very good. I think I'm a pretty good twenty four hour fitness plan you probably are thank right but I will say this conversation for the great players to have that tried like battling each other for legacy whether it's Lebron our staff or Kobe doesn't Mj like those are the conversations though that the next level guys are like well fuck it that's unfair when Ray Allen went to the Miami Heat yeah I know what the Celtics do out here battling for second that's it you really think that that happened I knew we had a chance but it was like those guys were so good and Kevin is Kevin is so good news and I do you get a can you hear the people that are and I just saw you think it was on the jump go to what's it got in the clippers big hair mantras and you're like dude this why I love you on the shows and why you're so good a good conversationalist but you just like shoot people straight and you also can relate to players and non players but you were like dude come on be straight with me when you got why am PG you were like all right if we don't make it to the finals you said it's a wash of a season and he was like I mean it because it's a wash season it's like I mean we all make the playoffs probably and you're like dude it's like yeah it's it'll be a bummer like it'll be won't matter and look I have no problem with him as he still a young player and he's very very good I'm no problem with him saying that externally but inside that locker room I know the true like you got a guy like Paul George one of the most I told the best players in the league and the echo why the.

"Like. That's the tradition and Jefferson is kind of like just gobsmacked right. I mean this is this is now do exactly right. This is the president of Yale you know being like Oh yeah the bones the giants from bibles and Jefferson just like no no what there's got to be. There's got to be a better explanation for this so that's that's sort of that sort of the start of this for Jefferson right a he's some as background is lower and obviously in politics two was he actually doing this old lacquer armchair over the actually going on expeditions and Hanes on stuff so yes so Jefferson yeah so Jefferson's education has yet so he goes the College of William and Mary and he studies mathematics and philosophy and he but he also develops this really deepened abiding love for you know what they didn't have the term term then Beret Bo Bo we would today call science right of just like all all stripes <hes> and what is it. They caught natural philosophy. Is that the natural philosophy at the time yeah so or you know I mean if you had a more of a religious Bentos like natural theology you know so but yeah basically the study of nature and <hes> and Yeah Jefferson yeah he develops his very deep abiding love love for Science and Jefferson was was methodical. I mean you know this was not what this is important part of the story to right because I mean so far is basically a professional scientists right Jefferson is not Jefferson is a as a politician he works as a lawyer and then eventually gets involved in politics with the American revolution and becomes ambassador and and eventually Vice President President etc but you know he's he's not a slouch about this and so in in the case of <hes> of like these bones right so he finds out these bones are in Kentucky right there basically justly roading out of the ground round out this salt lick and so Jefferson wants to actually see them. He wants to look at them for himself. Now he doesn't go down to Kentucky because he's otherwise occupied but <hes> and this is a great part of the story <hes> so he gets somebody somebody to go get the bones for him and so the first person he dispatches his actually Daniel Boone the legendary frontiers. Who's who yeah what else do we know? We had a coon skin hat. That's right. I'm so one of the People's Daniel Boone one of the other people is this Guy General George Rogers Clark <hes> who was the commander army and the West and it's Clark who actually ends up agreeing to <hes> to go down there <hes> get a bunch of these bones gathered them up and ship them back to <hes> to Jefferson <hes> up north or up in Virginia sorry not north but yet will further north <hes> and Jefferson Jefferson and so Jefferson is able to to examine these bones for the first time and the thing that really strikes him about them is <hes> well so so not surprisingly one of the things that so he fiercely disagrees with boof on about them because bef- on I knew about these bones to write it had been a French explorer who had originally found them so fond of course knew about them and so the thing that really struck everybody about them was that there these huge bones and their teeth in there and so some of the teeth are clearly tusk's like those of an elephant right <hes> but the other thing are the molars right they have these mass dedicating teeth or what they called grinders back then and these are not like teeth that are found in in modern elephants and so there's so that's the first big mystery right because the assumption is that these are all the bones of one animal and so it's like well what kind of animal has both tusks and grinding grinding teeth because it's not any kind of animal that we know about and Buffon answer is actually. He thinks that you know they're probably not the same animal. He thinks they're two different animals. He thinks the tusks are those of an elephant and the teeth.

"He was Thomas Jefferson <hes> so Thomas Jefferson is one of our founding fathers in the United States so he was third president from he was our second vice president. He was our first secretary of state. <hes> he was also the author of the American Declaration of Independence so he was he was a pretty prominent important person in in the history the founding of the United States and <hes> as as I'm going to argue <hes> he's also really important in the history of crypto zoology too which is not one of his achievements that he's a he's usually recognized for yeah indeed. I didn't didn't know anything about this. Did you like not until her justice presentation so no now I did know about one tiny aspect of it. I remember watching among the it was Kim Burns did Lewis Clark documentary and they were talking about <hes> on the loose and Clark Expedition Jefferson was specifically asking Lewis Clark or to look for specific animal but I don't spoil that so <hes> will let let Justin get into that but no I was basically completely ignorant of this and my hope is that our listeners will also be somewhat ignorant and we'll be excited to learn you stuff. I mean I mean what we want to do as much as possible I think of <hes> our audience is like a giant coloring book and we're just coloring them in with science in history so <hes> in waiter I am. I don't know where that is coming from. That's probably Tequila so just this move on fresh. Okay I lost Thomas Jefferson have to do with cryptic zoology so yeah. This is not an aspect of Jefferson's life that is is I I would agree with you. Guys is it's not particularly well known <hes> which is not to say that has not been well documented that was one of the things that really surprised me about this when I started digging into it is that they're actually a lot of books and essays and and papers out there that talk about this but the kind of like Blake was saying they only talk about little facets of it and so what I really wanted to try and kind of put like this whole picture together about Jefferson's sort of crypto zoological logical career and and also just actually how important it was because this was not just some kind of like Lark he had on the side. I think that this is actually very instrumental to understanding Jefferson as a person and also <hes> it's instrumental to understanding branding his conceptualization of what America <hes> shouldn't and would become <hes> so to really though get into understanding the relationship between Jefferson encrypt zoology as I talked about right in my presentation you can't really start with Jefferson you have to start with <hes> another guy <hes> a very different person and that was a George Louis Leclerc <hes> who was also known as the count of Buffon and he he was a French <hes> scientist is basically a celebrity scientist. He was born in <hes> seventeen seven and he went to the University of angers. <hes> if I'm remembering that correctly yeah the University of anger is where he graduated in seventeen thirty two <hes> and almost immediately after he got out of college he was given a a job with the French Royal Academy of Science in their engineering department and then that immediately landed him a contract with the French navy <hes> working on redesigning their ships and because of ships were out of would at the time Jeff von decide that he needed to not only know everything there was to know about ships he need to know everything there was no about trees which meant that he they need to know everything there wasn't about plants which led to this.

"I'm gonna be really honest, and I do, and it's funny that you say that about watch much my language, I feel bad like I had no idea. I would the way they did the the players should Beaune in. It's not a knock on them. Like, I know anytime I say a word I need to any this soom. It's going to be recorded and put out there. But it was one of those things where you're talking and you're kinda cracking jokes with some guys. And you don't know what they're just gonna use one clip. I really did not remember Cussing that much like I located that professional as a person that really doesn't cuss that much. But it was more of like when we were describing, and I really kind of took my back to that place in that moment. That's just kind of just how it was. So I I regret a little bit that it's gone viral. And I'm like. Doing it as much, but it just part of it. I don't care that you were Cussing. I'm asking about the actual content of the story saying that oh bleep. I better. Get a thank God. I don't want any part of this that kind of honest, even though you explain it very well right here on air, but given that kind of honesty, and that kind of sound bite that it is is that a story that you would have told if you were still an active player with. Saying that I want. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Hundred percent anybody. That knows me knows that. But you know, I am kind of unapologetically honest. And I think anybody that knows me my teammates like that. They don't question whether or not I thrive for big moments, or you know, because that's all I'm really matters. I don't care. What fans? I don't care. What media thing? I don't care what my team thing and Jason Kidd or Kenyon Martin. Or LeBron James all of these guys? I firmly believe if they were like, hey, would you go to battle with Richard? Could you trust Richard on the floor and a big moment? Would you give him the ball? If you needed to in a big moment. I like to believe all of them say, yes, because they all have and we've all been successful in certain spaces. So I don't really care to be honest. And you know, it's like, you know, talent, you know, people saying like, hey, you know, I cried when my kid was born or stuff like that. Look, if you're having a motion moment, or you're giving something like brutally honest like that's just the reality. Situation. However, the pundits want to dissect it and say, what do you think about a player saying, this, do you think less or more? It's like, I really don't care. What people think about me? And that I wanna get a minute from this guy, Richard Jefferson with us, and we hope to talk to you again on Monday. We're going to talk to me. I mean, I mean that was a good question too. By the way, don't don't take my answer the wrong way. Thanks RJ. Try hard. Stop calling him on. It's a little too chummy. We're trying to do journalism around here. So RJ, what can you tell us about Kyrie Irving? And that's like a minute of undestood honesty is someone who's been around all that stuff. I think there's a lot of different emotions, obviously, I get a ton of tax when people that were in that circle. And I got a ton of people that are outside that circle questioning it. I think there was there is a little bit of sadness. There's a little bit of you know, frustration. I think you always say. This you look at you know, Shaq and Kobe were they they come back together when they're forty years old and they're talking about. Yeah. We were probably a little too egotistical. At that moment that we probably we stayed together probably would have won one or two more championship. But in that moment, all they care about is their own future. And they all have their own destinies kind of change. And I think, you know, Cairo Irving for him. He did understand because he was in gun guy. You can't ask a young player to look at life through an older players win. Right. Like, you just you can't right? I didn't understand when I was in my first year the today going to the NBA finals, and I see these guys like crying and our second year, excuse me. And I see these guys crying..
