Hat reveal And you know the response. craziest been really supportive. It's been comical title. But you know it's a really really good time on I'm so excited about the About the response that I've been getting to you know everybody's everybody everybody seems to be really excited and supportive all reasons absolutely a knocked it out the park now. I gotta quit now when when you sign the contract. Is there a year like a year gym membership in there. It was crazy you like. You know I mean I like are. Are you snacks and a makeup chair happening at crime scenes details both registered at. I mean I was honestly. I'm so done with it. An Essay towards Zuma's Thomas Light One. Would they stay in Jim Right because I keep all night Back and say right now but now I you know I like I said I auditioned for cow and I didn't even know that document had was going to be a part of it until a couple episodes in so even if you look you know you can kind of look at my shoulders. My arms in episode one in the pilot and they go back and look at them. The eight in. It's just a different body because once I found out that I had you know that I was document had said okay. Whoa I guess I gotta get naked? GotTa get we're bringing up the tab for Gosh so you went from Dad by God and a couple of episodes they say I wasn't feeling today by but that's why I was thinking you've got to remember share from the job. The prime guys. I'm giving you a hard time giving yards on. Now wait but since we're on the workout though and you had it worked I wanNA I wanNA touch on like a little bit of your past roles as you got yes sir quite a year actually so right so I want to go back to Aquaman Black Manta. Okay now I was out you Kinda push off a cliff. I wanted to know I want to know about these stunts. That organic to like ha ha was that was that you did you. Did you have to pull back a little bit potatoes. So the submarine was was me in the beginning. Like other other crazy stuff. I would clap. Cheer and Root My stuntman by I. Don't I don't know a UPO star on I worked out. I got it safe. I prepare myself to do the most but I once. They're putting on a helmet and didn't inside different doing that. I might look man. I don't know if you're GonNa make better than me. I'm GONNA via thin. You know saying I'm like did you. Did you get to fight. which mamone at all in the beginning like did you guys go head to head Ed? How would that was that was? Jason is interested. Jason is such a pro at that at the handlery combats. One is really easy. Really Physical Guy But then he's just just game of thrones and a Lotta his other jobs always warrior or you know fighting like that so the Jason was a pro and a step them you know with with that kind of made. It feel likes choreography while not wanting to make it look look. We'll tastes at the same time. But Jason Jason Dovers harder actually from what we see online. He's like probably just a good all around the guy but I do have a question now that we're on that subject if you guys were in like a like a thumb more maybe there's like a hand to hand combat arm arm wrestling contests. Who would win? Do you think the war over offers a lot of uses that that that so he If we was in Hong Wrestling contest win that I wrote that a hand to hand combat fighting something like that are I'm not gonNa that's so that tells me so. You grew up in New Orleans. I felt like like you grew a no win. How to fight? You can size up someone and say you know what he got he back now. Going to be about an also West Oakland till so it does very specific places where you know you gotta know how to bounce around. This is the Dan on that one by the concise Fred. Ed Decisive my second team and I said at the forty niners recently. Because I didn't like thing went down right riding with plants but I had to. I kind of sit down and kind of go neutral was yesterday. Yeah yesterday's game present and okay okay. So let's talk about some of your other roles at the lake. The one that stayed with me the most up until watchmen was it. Your black Mir episodes. So what No. How did that come to you? How how did you feel when you got script like? How did that come about? They came out You know the way that most the my jobs had come through an email in an opportunity to audition I didn't get the script. Got The script After I after I sent in the audition for just two sides and then I read the script that on the phone with the writers and it was this really it was just the doak opportunity to go in just to play someone I saw in Carlisle someone who was like long into might. It didn't have a silent relationships. He didn't really experience when COMPANIONSHIP IN A in a sexual partner And I saw him you know someone who got down attests experience sensation or a feeling of companionship. Was Addict so I kind of made the archetype of of addict. You know what I mean added to who didn't have didn't have love you know and And Yeah I got a chance to go to zero and play with mackey new. You know the whole the whole the whole team. That was that was going going to zero in doing that. And that was another one where I had one of those. Having those main lines where people can gravitated to. Yeah it was it was it was a way by the episode. Just eat the imagery. It was just like what I've never seen anything like this. So yeah that's that would keep you know I always madden television. I wanted to you know high tastes and I wanted to be diverse so so far I've been able to. I've been able to put Quality Television Guy. I think for him Ryan. Are you say something a while. I was just going to go based off that because y'All got your rose to me so much because there's like you're you're are playing it so well because you hadn't won carrots on the front side and then you just flip. It is like seems to me that you always have two sides of both of the characters that you play and so I wonder what what is. What is the most challenging character? You've had to play like how do you get yourself in that mindset. 'cause you have some you have some role in really have people making the next day interest I think the Manhattan was pop was was the most challenging because there are so many You know he's working on so many levels all at one time so we really complicated like that. Like a person who who knows all of the past all all the future who knows exactly what's going to happen hose incredibly emotionally unattached or who saves me emotionally unattached who's hyper intelligent. OJ Very difficult to fall in love with an end even as an actor in Austin a couple of times. I apologized to regina because unlike babe I know that I wanNA give you WanNa because you're giving me so much on your end and I wanna be. I WANNA be able to reciprocate to the same level of motion that's experiencing but that's one of the hardest things about that character is knowing when to do as knowing knowing how much how much to give you now if you give too much humanity that he's not dying and hadn't if you don't give enough that he's a robot you know in you know I had a really really Really really negotiate how to bring in you know his human qualities a window bringing the qualities that made him a guy that was probably one of the more more challenging roles of but still but still rewarding you know when something is really challenging to me that means you know that tells me that I should then I'm probably doing the right thing in. Yeah what's the job is difficult. Yeah I absolutely agree. I mean it comes across off screen like I episode a I literally. It didn't feel like an hour. I was like gone on a second. I was just sucked our stuck in this love story. The Chemistry between you Regina being a even as Dr Manhattan once he kinda like walked into that bar and he sat down. You know boy meets girl you can still see like the human even inside him so that that episode blew me away. I can just give you guys all that means like that's how I feel. So so how was that. What's we bought Regina? How is working with? Because she's she's like I'm a little person who I'm five four. You know what I'm saying but I think I'm big and Regina is like on screen. How is that working with her off the hook me? I always describe her as game. She's just play she's she warsi Hosmer owns he always has a great attitude was really down to play. Which is why I'm a very playful? Like they're also and I think that's why we we. We really hit it off. Well because you know we just kind of didn't didn't hold back and it really trusted trusted each other with With sales I mean I think the first the first day maybe the second day noted in our second day working together we were. We were doing so you know that scene upstairs in the closet so that's no getting getting comfortable with one another and a lot of trust so our relationship was definitely bill. Bill don't trust she's just funny. She's Kinda you know you've got to keep your guard up. 'cause she a crack minute a in life you know She sees game just such a beautiful beautiful energy on set and Really really made much up my job. Easy to have the time to work on my feet on the ground and we'll look and is go. I mean this is not could ask anything else speaking. Keep your guard up. How'd you feel when she walked in with the Ham because that will get? What is the cows library doing? I want to say. But it's something like this. Let it go well for your L.. Premiere Party with You know I sit down and I watched Sunday with my sisters up. Yeah they said they were. They were just Surprises everybody else looking was only gone. I think you might be. They knew it right now. Yeah you didn't tell you this. The way the riders that this reveal it was masterful. Because has I the signs. Were all there right. Lorries always been attracted to cow excalibur. And then her ex cow a bar like it was all there we just. I didn't pick up on it until I think episode seven one true as Angela. You'RE NOT GONNA ask. We is izzy and I was like. Oh it's gone and just like freaked out. And then when she came home and meet him over the head with the blue I mean it was even the promotional posting. She's glowing blue. Like it's been there all along. How did you feel when you when you got that? Reveal yourself as the actor. Bessie was on the page. That scene was kind of heartbreaking. It was it was it was because it was sort of the end of Cao. How cow yes? Sort of the end of cow you know and How this as a as a man as a figure I kind of build him to be very child child childlike. I mean he was innocent. He was extremely trustworthy. me I saw him as a loving person extremely Russ US worthy You know he didn't. He didn't run when when Angela had the hammer. In in Cao Cao was just really the embodiment is sort of like he was made to be the embodiment of love for Angeles. When I just really felt for cow in that moment because he was probably so afraid and and and but but he wanted to keeps speeding on the ground and be there for her But but but you know there was bigger things at play so he had to voice He had he had the gun. That was the beginning of the love story that opens up an episode. That's one of the another thing that I really like about the series that the American historical drama is action is in its action. Adventure is a Ho- dunnit mystery in as like The the story of a history of trauma in a generational trauma pass down for one another to another White Wife's premacy tackling a lot of serious Subject matter in Ben. Lets US know that it's a love story the entire hi time. Yeah it takes care of us in that way so that was when Cao went away. That was the beginning of unexpected journey. That that that I great a lot of people were surprised by. Yeah absolutely and you know what I love about. What is that? It's it's all these different genres but for for me I take away from it. It's it's about blackness like I. I haven't really seen a show like this where we have a mainstream you know TV show. It's all over twitter. It's it's all it's on. HBO and the CAST. Is You know the main characters are predominantly black. And just even though CAL is a mask right of for Dr Manhattan aging even had that throwaway line about cultural appropriation. Kind of how Dr Manhattan. It's like a black body. But how was that like for you. Just even the opening scene of episode one just kind of really hurt my soul like how like. How does he was a black man? How was it like watching the show or just being a part of it? You know watching. It is different from being a part but you know when I watched it us. I do. It's out of Washington from the audience. Perspective return being unattached You know going to be unattached to or so it was it was gruesome. It was Difficult to watch was necessary Felt similar similar to a lot of a lot of the audience Watching it Now knowing that I'm a part of it I get a lot of pride because we're not. This isn't a show that shying away from the things that we're talking about when it comes to race in history of devices this country you know we're not taking the sideways protein you know we're we're sort of earth Giving white supremacist name. We're giving our our antagonists were calling it white supremacy very specifically we're talking about racists vary very specifically. It's not a show that says that saying well let's well. Let's try to understand that side knepper colonnade for exactly what it is And we're also not saying well. Let's sit down. Let's have thoughtful conversations about it with endless. Reach across the aisle is saying no that that this is. This is a problem that this is what the cancer in this in. This society is a Potato Race in an issue of race in this country And and it's an it's saying that the way the defeated it is absolutely head on you know and so I'm really to be a part of a show that stolen that and then there's also educating educating in depicting the adults Massar Tulsa massacre civic way as close to the truth as possible that is talking talking about the lettuce that were dropped down on the troops. You know that is sort of deal with history in a way that's not that's not watering down Like like it up like it usually years when it's given to us you know and the crazy thing is this is supposedly an alternate universe but or alternate reality but those events really happened outside outside of the the superheroes and you know these fantastical characters what happened in Tulsa. What happened to the troops? This all happened. This is all our history. So it's the revolutionary my mind. I've never seen anything like it. So thank you for for being a part of it. It was mind blowing and by the way I was always seeing cal. And so right there here I mean he made some Jahmai to catch up but like I was saying both of them say on on the highest. Yeah I think I was at dropped kind of dropped. You know as far as contract wise for your gym membership but I think I was a little bit on. But before we get out of the For get watchmen. I WanNa talk about you. Did it Larry's to me where you you're like look like you're in your trailer and your libration. I guess you're bound wave but right right right so I'm trying to figure out. What are you listening to God? God what is document getting ready and makeup hair. Yeah let's do both the z dot the Resin Doctor Manhattan butlers lecturing. Probably listen to like the the power of the universe you know speaking true. Yeah I love the sound of the galaxy or something like that they kahad expansive and help layer. That is or something like that. Not Me her depends on on dead weeks but MERV light right now you can find me listen to yeah. I don't know anything ignorant. I'm listening to a lot of ignorant. I'm Lis- is probably my playlist right. I'm who has listen. Listen to Gary Clark Junior. Though I'm listening to all religious I think three times already yes or lower homeless missiles is like a lot of the new stuff Mike As always always this new James Brown. Yeah that's kind of listen to promote these All Oh my own one example of some ignorant that you're listening to challenge I'm not giving you Calling out artists to tell you what it is I tell you. We don't want no problems. All all right we we just leave it alone. 'cause ignorant witless got it touch on this. So we actually actually cover the handmaid's tale for our podcast. We did a recap series and you were in an episode and you were the reason why hated June. So how you Omar Omar out of his way for June June did not let take no for answer. o'meara is like come back but you gotta stay in the House. Junior enlisted as a result. Omar was on the wall right. We'll come back to him myself but a hem SOS Got Got the auditions for Washington. Yeah Yeah because he saw me in that episode and he says is this who is who is whispered sat out the handmaid's tale sorted some of him. I'm sorry I forgot your question about him. Russillo fencing just to you to say like we always talk about feminism. Why Feminism Anisim? How a lot of times you know? Jim was responsible as much as she's a hero of that story. She was responsible for a lot of brown and black bodies. And you're one of the first. I think her first black body so I just wanted to say like your character was a catalyst for us as as podcasters for hating June for the longest time. Look we. We came up with Omar. We like namedrop. Omar like bad guy that June got. Can we drop that so many times our recaps years because we were just like. She's just like she just taken everybody else. You don't care about nobody but herself so I was just venting because we do a lot of ranting but how was that for you like did you see my my way or how did you. I didn't see it that way I saw I saw somebody. who was you know? Nice to vote. Who was trying to do the right thing and and you know pay for it in the end? That's about the extent of how how far I saw it. I didn't take a deeper dive as you did. But you know but you know what you gotta take a deep dive deep dive to make sure that they have back up. I didn't I didn't look at it quite the same way and we all Muslims are doing the job by the time he was. You know writing a thesis above rose to Ryan will tell you that was like my ran. I said she took out. Oh Martian branch sheets account Natalie just boom boom boom boom. So I'm trying to get that out. I'm glad that you didn't outweigh but that was you. Were the beginning for a lot of people of the reason why you know. June was not taken very well at the character. She made up for it for anyone that finished his theories. But you were you were the catalyst but that way and and now yet and and now you know Omar was the catalyst for for Callan doctor Manhattan so that that comes full circle you talk about these upcoming projects though yes the forget. Okay wait a minute wait a minute I got a question for you. I got the question for a Matrix Your I. I'm hearing that you're matrix rex but I WANNA know. Are you gonNa red or Blue Peel. Oh my gosh okay. Got Two quiet never mind. Just just tell me about your the red rapier piece I it was okay at the. I don't know the passage I e okay you delete roller no red and blue. You guys helped me. I come on come up with okay. Well Bred Pella's knowledge like like the fruit that's knowledge so right pick. Yeah I think so I I definitely I definitely agree with that. 'cause it's been I'm GonNa you treat them in every okay you so wrong. Blue Pills is security and happiness and red pill is knowledge and freedom. So which one you go out with. He said he's the knowledge of freedom. Nah freedom over there. But it's like it's a more difficult path something like sometimes sometimes security and happiness. That's that's you know I don't I don't really care for the security part but the happiness is important in the freedom on the other side of support but sometime knowledge come was a little too much discomfort. I don't know I I feel like red is a good choice because ultimately happiness is fine. But if you're blissfully ignorant and you're only happy because you're in the matrix rather be free in struggle. That's just me but I'll go with red and you're actually well. Did we talk talk about majors up. I don't know if you could talk about the Matrix and you talk anything about the Matrix. We assorted conversation. But we'll find out well whenever you list. I mean whatever whatever your then we'll leave it at that we were talking about these. Okay Surono okay. The same for Candyman Projects were Keiser so much but That's where the world can you when caterpillars doubt suit net new is a phenomenal.

I got it like a few years later because I was. I was an empty for the longest time. Okay and I finally got my. Ps Two and the PS two for me like the was like my gateway drug. Where those all I knew I fell in love with. Mario fell in love with like all the all the rare rare games specifically the PS two can The PS came out. Boy got the and that was basically like my formative years of being a fan of video games. That was like when I I played Shadow of the Colossus three and like NBA stream to burnout three games. I brought up before. But that's what I started falling doubt down deep in the well and really started to really like absolutely love video games and I actually. Kinda like the way I describe it in like two thousand and I'm going to tell them to five. I have a friend named Addison. Who Back in the day? You should let me borrow his games. Because the 'cause I since I was late to the PS two game he already had a PS two For a few years he knew that for me as a Newbie he could. He could expose me to a bunch of different games and so there was like a week where he let me borrow. It was shot classes delegates. All three that brought those in the same week and I brought those home and I think week that must have been pre. It's probably it's it's describe as probably my my greatest week of gaming because I want to say I played three first and that was my first time really engaging with the narrative like that in a video game where is the first one I really cared about the story about the characters cared about like the villains in like the the the the group of villains in logos three the greatest series in my opinion like the end great one of the great boss fights of all time the pain. The pain yeah. The pain was awesome. The sorrow you know which was for me like a really cool fourth wall breaking moment like all the stuff really really vied with me and I was like that was the game that for me. Introduce me to the idea that video games can have amazing stories and then shadow colossus for me was the game that interests me. The idea that video games can be art because I jumped into the shadow colossus and I wasn't really expecting like this sort of like minimalist yet. Grand sort of experience that is. Your boss is a boss rush. It is a boss Battle Game. Maybe ABOUT BUST BOSS RUSH. But it is a game is only boss battles. You're going up. You're killing these GIGANTIC BEASTS. That are fifty times the size of you and the only get bigger and bigger and more interesting as you get further along in the game and the way. That game tackled. It's which was very mysterious soundtrack which was orchestral beautiful. The visual design of it the emptiness of the open world but how the emptiness made it rain like that really interests me to what I got a new a new idea of. What can yeah I can I can. I can tell. Somebody's a moment kind of envious. Because like when I because I'm so much older when I was a kid. The games that made an impact on me were like just just bits and blobs like they were like so primitive. They still made an impact on me. So yeah when you when when you're my age back then you applying gains so much more. Flu Advanced Kate. And I can totally imagine how if you're like six or seven year old kid playing shadow of the Colossus for the first time. That's like a like an epiphany. Gt San Andreas for the first time ever experiencing a world that big before that game has she's still an amazing game and so this is why I wanted bring bring up the segment because playstation UK. Right they tweet out about the twenty years of playstation then then they ask. What was the greatest? Ps Two game and people replied. And so I want to get your thoughts on something. Yeah Okay so did they did they did they do like a survey or something or they did okay all right so. I mean it's Konami. Uk. Tweet BACK. GotTa be mcast. Which of course they would say that. It still looks like it's those assessing that they went to over three. I think three is for me the knowledge to appreciate you gets a little bit more complicated where you have to think more than just go and like you. Have you have to remember when you when you go back and really think about these games made an impact on you when you were younger? It's less about what is objectively the better game and more about what is the game that made the impact on you at that time. Yes you know what I mean. Yeah no for sure. The thing that I'll give for too is that I think too was very forward looking in a way that I don't think any other video game has been right away. Which saw to kind of talk about the idea of means and the idea that you know politics and human like consciousness and or mainly politics are going to be determined by be like means they let they basically say that kind of directly in the game. I remember I remember originally played. I mean quite prophetic when you think about it. It's super prophetic. And the the ways in which the whole game is Kinda themed around the the idea of manipulation and misdirection. And how that then determines like like politics in overarching Gina's. He's I mean he's out there but he's got some. He's got some good ideas. Yeah no it's incredible and then a lot of people here in the replies were saying Sanchez. That's that's definitely that's that's a great one Let's see there's somebody here says Jack Three? I know if you guys are play Jack and Dexter. I mean Jackie is fine. I mean solid solid game. No doubt but really up there with the best of the best quite a few people here are saying. Simpson's hit and run I. It's not the best but it's a good shadow. I don't mind it it might be the best What is it called the when they best like? Gte clone no but the ones where it's like published in its own license license. Yeah for me the best license game on. Ps Two has got to be. I think I might say spiderman too baggy was so good. I want this lady was asking for speed underground to you. Were saying here again from its hop hop to would be the one for me. How was my preferred one? I'll say and I played most wanted. I didn't I didn't fall in love with if you had. If you had to do a top five. You definitely put San Andreas in there. Yes one hundred percent. You definitely put metal gear solid. Yes in the either rem I definitely. I think I personally would like as a monument of lies. You said like games can be our can really again an amazing. Yeah what else. What do you think they'd be like playstation two top five? I will probably put burnout three in there For for for me personally. That would be hard to say no to. Yeah I played I on xbox but it's it's the same thing. Yeah Oh man and then let me see here where I keep a list of like my favorite games examiner and so. I'm going to pull this up. Okay look at it because MBA volunteer. I'm thinking that might put in there. Oh Oh my God yeah. Nba Street volume two yeah DJ cucumber slices. Bobby Garcia best. The best that's that might that might fuck. That might actually be my number one number one. I did have that on playstation two okay. That's what I played it on and I fucking I played this shit out of that game and it has volume two has the best the best contract. Yeah they reminisce over you my own good second. That game boots up. I'm fucking yeah into this wall it brings you into the and we had a podcast recently for games cast about the best or our personal ten ten games and yeah. Nba Volunteers in there for me. All my God that might be my personal number one this is this is somewhat of an obscure one but I feel like fans of this might agree. Adrenals H. E. Three is in there for me. So draconian game and then Also Star Wars Battlefront. Two is in there for me. I've already exceeded battlefront. Two with the Modem wasn't yeah so wouldn't wouldn't there be a Tony Hawk gaming here somewhere. Ooh twenty-eight pro skater three. Probably now we're talking about top ten not my cup of tea. I'm just thinking about games. Yeah widely regarded would be would be in their Tony. Hawk's underground two would be my choice. We've probably because we know game that I would be more excited about going to a full on next January. Master you can. You can wave a magic wand. No remastered anything. Nba Street volume to agree. I would just say music and and DJ cucumbers all of that. I I want all back to have the simpsons in run. I'm taking NBA Street volunteer to today's stories. Include New Star Wars Game. Oh so I throw. This one is well known for me. Sx through all the way some people would say tricky for me personally for the impact on you time if it was as it was also three. I know a lot of people prefer tricky.

Let's begin with. What is it forever will be the rope reports that it did this. Four story says a Baker's dozen starting with a Banger a new star wars game is leaked. This comes from Joe Scrambles Aegean Star Wars Project. Maverick has seemingly leaked on the European playstation network and it appears to be an unannounced game posted by both posted by twitter dot releases and posted on recent Arab by USER SOAP. It appears listening was created for the game on the European. Ps and back end with a logo attached. Right here in Kevin you can pull up the logo for project. Maverick Star Wars or you can order on on or not bringing up now you by While that listing appear on the public store it's details can be can still be scraped by services like this v like the PS enlisting bought these hidden listings have also recently added the likes. Resi will three ahead of their official announcement. We've never heard project maverick. Before ended up here is this is an early listing for completely unannounced project the presence of a tiny group of x wings flying towards start a story in the in the local image as lead some speculate that this is a dogfighting game in the vein of the classic x wing or Rogue Squadron Series. Last month we heard. Ea WE HEARD THAT E had cancelled our game code-named Viking in Twenty nineteen twenty nineteen but that a smaller more unusual project was still in the works at a motive in Montreal. It's possible this is project. Maverick Gary do you have any thoughts on a New Star Wars? I guess x Wing Flying dog-fighting aim. I mean first of all. It's impossible to keep secrets anymore with Bautzen. Everything's going on. I'm guessing if images were uploaded to a place for Bach could scrape it and finding that means that this announcement was not far away. Anyway like why. Why put online if you're not prepping to announce thing so maybe this is something that we would see three or something soon. I think like even sooner. I mean we see it in a few weeks because I want to say the R. E. Three stuff was very close when already three league to the League. The announcement was I think. A few weeks dot com slash around If you want to give me more accurate than that so yeah I think this is. This is what Harverson happening I mean. There's there's there's not much you can infer from that image other than I. I'll tell you I would like to see. I would like to see a full blown Star Wars Space Combat Game. Yeah I called project. Maverick me my me. My my all time favorite style was a few but like why up there competing for that number one spot would be the tie game back in the day from long before you were born using all used to love those games and I know that they I know that they made space combat an element of battlefront two. And there's been like DC and battles Gareth and stuff like that. But like I want the full on X. Wing. Would you find a game like this in twenty twenty You know full full story campaign. Squadron Management of. I want to fly all the different rebel ships on a minute. I want to be a fly on the imperial side. I WANNA do whatever I wanNA do I want. I want a rebel story campaign and Imperial Story Campaign. I want full on multiplayer. I I really want to get involved in some big dog like a hundred players dot foul like the really cool not necessarily battle royale but like big big big like engagement. Yeah I would love to see that a battle royale and I know that like terms connected but like it doesn't have to be a chime APP or anything but like the idea of like. Hey you guys just light speed into this area. Where the destroyers let out a hundred or fifty of the bad guys there's fifty the good guys and it is just a full on giant dog. Yeah I mean aerial aerial combat as a. Shawna that we have as far as I know haven't yet seen about Roy ALCOM we these days. We're trying to plug battle royale into everything. We managed to plug it into Tetris. For God's say Yeah So I wouldn't mind that but I'm more interested in full on twin story campaigns for each for each side big capital ships. I want to take down a star destroy. I WanNa do all this stuff. That Larry Hall in those guys back in the Lukasz days did I back in the ninety S. I want that back with modern technology series X. P. S. five full blown. Let's fucking project. I mean this. This is a real reach but project. Maverick could suggest air combat. Oh I think a hundred hundred associated lake. Maverick ason Maverick. I always associate the word. Maverick with flakes of wild card. I'm just I'm just thinking of the top gun connection. Yeah me too and like the imagery behind the behind. Maverick is a big ship. What one thing Gary? Let's be careful when we talk about Tetris? Ninety nine right about what tetris ninety nine? It's a great game. I mean I'm saying the battle. Royale concepts is a great concept. You can plug it into almost any kind of game it led to. We thought appoint with Tetris. Tetris is Berlin. It's an all time classic one of the Best Games ever made but like there's nothing left. There's nothing left to do. But then tetris ninety nine completely. Reinvented it. Are they fresh again? I'm just saying that. Yeah so I'm just like it doesn't seem like an add on mode in a battery doesn't seem like it fits space combat or combat. But I can see how it would be fun as like extra vehicle for so long movies like they put so much money into making these giant dogfighting scenes. Yeah Like famous movie. You know Howard uses epic that he made had a giant Dogfight like those. Those are always been seen that we've seen. Yeah so cool to actually be a pilot there and trying to navigate while destroying your enemy and not crashing into other shifts. That just seems like such an no it would be it would be. It would be great and the last man standing by oil. Can that working just for fun? But like what I would want to do. Is like a big fleet engagement fifty rebel ships versus fifty imperial ships and the first one to wipe out the other side. Sorry that that is what I was talking right. Okay said battle route just to because in my mind that's more societas with having giant chunks of groups bright but the limited events that they had where it was fifty fifty four nine dot would love. That makes total sense to me. I think bring it on so amazing. Yeah Yeah Yeah yeah so I would not cheap bust out my My AFL stick in my L. throttle. I would get the PC version. I would play with the full on flight. Step Back Shit. Thrust Master when play for playstation that I really Wanna get even never even playing counsel I would still want those controls. Yeah of course yeah I love it I love it. Let's let's let's hope that's what this is. All streets excited is not what it's going to be. No I think it is. I honestly I don't know if it's GonNa have like the actual control and is going to be sold to the fight stick but I think one hundred percent. It's GONNA space comments that at the very least it's a dogfighting space game like evenly all the right things right there small swings fine towards but that could mean any. I mean and mastiff but yeah and the maverick thing yeah all all signs point to yes but I know I'm not I'm not going to look. How many times has the style will have the Star Wars Games disappointed? I mean. Are we just waiting for this thing to get fucking canceled like all the others? I mean who knows this? And we'll this comes from They won't to let them get my hopes up. This was originally alluded to by Jason Schreier and his article talking about how You know we've had the recent string of star. Wars Games cancelled rice starting with starting the project thirteenth thirteen. But you know we got Amy Heading Star Wars game cancelled and then we had a whole slew of them just recently. Jason Try Report on Project Viking being canceled but but then he alluded to a smaller more unusual projects in his article about see what worries me more unusual. That doesn't that doesn't strike me as fitting what we were just talking about. Because I don't want smaller. I want like a full triple A. epic story campaign full motive. Full BLOWN GAME. Somebody and then unusual like spice comeback. I'm wouldn't be that unusual. It's been done install I I feel like compared to what you would imagine amy headaches hours game to be. I feel like in that context being referred to as smaller end unusual Jason Schreier. I WANNA say Jesus right on twitter. Responded to a tweet tagged him in this. And they're like is this the game you're referring to in your in your article in responded yes right and so. I I feel like that's definitely confirmation. That like this gives me hope that is actually gonNA come out especially with it being uploaded to the PS in back in that signifies joys progress being done on it you know what would be a great model for this would fit style was great. It was like the wing commander model. Remember the wing Commander Games. Everyone is so fucking young. The Wing Commander Games were space combat games but they also had like fully fleshed out like cinematic scenes and stories so I can see a thing. Where like you're hanging out in the squadron quarters with your other other characters and you and you'll go in through like a cinematic story and making choices and walking around inside the capital ship and going into the hangar into getting into city a story situations with other characters but then you go fly missions and then you full blown space combat. Yeah then I want to say Jason Schreier said that. The smaller unusual game is being done by motive Which this being the case in the B being this would have been done by motive or this is being worked on by EMOTIV and emotive known for more and more unusual doesn't work done with Star Wars Battlefront two with dice and his face combat. There was cool right. Yeah Ship Dogfights Right. Yes yeah I WANNA say. I don't know how much e motive had to do with the space combat specific. But nobody knows nobody else but you know if that's the case then I think also wins. I just know already like we've all worked up into a lather about what we think this is going to be. And it's not going to be it. Why don't you? Why don't you think small? I think everything everything that does it. More and more unusual doesn't fit what I want. This debate dies if it's jest If it's just the battle there's no story by one story. Now let's wait. He learned that lesson after the first battle fan but I could also see the story being really half ass. Shit I think in terms of scale yes it will not be the call me fucking store. They should too in terms of scale. Then yes this won't be like the big huge sewers game. I think we're asking for but I do think one hundred percents a dogfighting game to what level that is. We'll see yeah I'm not I'm already starting to pull back my extra. I went out on a limb. And it's going to be this thing it's going to be x wing. Tai Fighter Wing Command. It's not gonna be that I can't I can't have my heart broken again number. Two Google Stadium houses a new second studio this comes from blog posts written by Jade Raymond the VP and head head of Stadia Games and entertainment. It Reads Stadium Games. Entertainment setting out to change the way we play enjoy increased video games with stadia. The creative possibilities are limitless. But this this is like stadium this this from stadium right here but we can't build those experiences without a talented team of game designers artists and storytellers. We started that journey with the opening of city as first original game studio in Montreal late last year today ratting. A New Stadium Games. Entertainment Studio in play Avista California which will be led by industry veteran Shannon Shannon Stud still the new Vista Studio will focus on delivering exclusive games using new mechanics creative ways to play together and unique interaction models that we're just starting to explore while we're not ready to share specific gains get rest assured we are listening to what gamers want and adding our own stadium twist to create new. Ip and experiences. I've been a fan of Shannon's for a long time. And who have admired her award. Winning work leading Sony Sony Santa Monica Studio and the interested in finding franchises like God of war that have one fans all over the world we. She has an extensive background in product development and creative leadership but most importantly she's a visionary who as the city of director will lead inspire play Vista teams. We're thrilled to welcome her to the stadium. Family Stadia is designed to be the one destination for all for all the ways we play. It's key to bring on talent. That is the key to bring on two on talent that not only had success in delivering. The industry's best content but also as creative ideas around how to embrace this new and unique way to create building a world. Class Studio piece by piece is unique. Opportunity that you don't often get in the game industry and we wanted to do with you. Gary does this give you any more faith and hope and Google Stadium New Studio. I mean kind of not really. I mean that was a lot of PR puffery. There'S NO SUBSTANCE THERE. I I get it but it's encouraging to see that. Google is continuing to invest in stadium. I one thing. I don't agree with a lot of people saying and there's a lot of negative stuff out there but stadium right now rightly so they top the launch where this was a disaster and right now they're in a position where they are having to dig themselves out of a very very deep hall to get back into Gamers good graces and build something that people give a shit about right now. They don't have something that people give a shit about. I do believe that they can get there. If they continue to invest lots of products have had bad launches and then gone on to find success because the company continued to invest in and have faith in that they wanted. They wanted to build So it's very I don't believe is I understand the reason why people say this is Olga was just gonNa pull the plug on this just like they pull the plug on hundreds of things you know they'd pull the plug on so many different projects. This is way bigger than just some document reader. Or whatever you know. It'll social network experiment. Whatever it was Google has tried the one of the things I like about good. They try lots of things a lot. They throw shit at the wall. And a lot of it's not gonNA stick but some of the stuff that does take ends up being really cool. I. Google has made a major major investment in stadium. And I don't think they are going to just cut and run if you make money in the short term. I think this is. This is a big investment for them. Then they're gonNA stick around and th the fact they're opening another studio Is is very encouraging. I think it's a signifier that there at the very invested in stadium. Yeah at least. They're they're trying to make it work. My fear is that they don't know how to make it work because Google Google is not a video game company and there are competing against companies. I mean they have people like Jade Raymond do know what they doing and they have smart people there but again at the end of the day this is all just blah blah blah. Yeah like show show something. And that's and that's my thing is that I. I think this is more so to give faith that they are still pushing on. But I feel like it doesn't really translate in a way that is going get people on their side until they start showing us what they're working on in order in order to in order to you know as they try to position themselves as another platform going forward. They want you to think that the platforms going forward playstation xbox Nintendo An stadium right. They they wanted. They wanted to be thought of in that context like a major platform. One of the things you have to have as a major platform is first party exclusives. And they don't really have that yet they like whereas they're halo whereas you know uncharted. Where's their Mario? They they need those games. You can is. Oh Shit like the point where people are fucking. I guess I do have to get stadium now. Miss out on that game and hopefully maybe. That's what these these new studios designed to do but like it feels like we're a long way wife. Yeah that's the thing is how many of those those games you also need at this point because yeah xbox launched originally with Halo and that's like that's that's like a spark right there right halo being that game and console with like that doesn't happen often. That was something special whereas here. We have stadium with now. They're second studio. Art To to First Party exclusive is going to be enough to compete today against people like xbox against playstation Nintendo by themselves. No it needs to be part of a of a big portfolio in a bigger strategy to keep bringing third party developers into the fall to grow the library to add exclusive. Titles that you can't get anywhere else like when you talk about xbox playstation when most people say oh well I like one over the other they say because I want the only playstation has these exclusive titles Stadia Right. Now doesn't have that very critical. There's nothing really associated with stadium. Video Games wise. No the only game I really even think of is the game guilt. Or Jill. How it's pronounced and I don't even know how that looks in my head. I just know the logos. No good enough yes. It's not good enough. I'm glad that it seems like they are invested in continuing continuing wish to wait. I wish they had launched with a bed. I I wish that they had. They had made their Halo Halo climate. Like some interest. This is our halo like this is flagship launch title. That like even if it's just a walk this one game you're gonNA WANNA get on state. You can't miss this like that's what Halo was for the Xbox And the and they didn't and they didn't have that and looking back on it. It's like what the fuck you guys doing. Yeah I still think they can get there and they need to get to a point where we look back on stadia the way we look back on the xbox one law triple yet which was a real fucking mass but like they pulled it out in the end or no man's sky any any number of examples of games at Lord's fucked up but they they redeem themselves. I Want Stadia to have a redemption story. But that's the thing it's already a redemption story because it's a mess. Yeah we'll see number three vowel ones. There will be more half life after half life. Alex this comes from Allesandro Barbosa of Gamespot with half Alexander later this month. Developer valve is opening the doors to a franchise it has left dormant for years but even though this is the latest entry in or even though this latest entry is a. Prequel to a story we already know. It seems valve wants to continue exploring its world further in the future in an interview with Game Informer Valve Developer Robin Walker explained that Alex has introduced has reintroduced the franchise to developers at Valve. Who HOPE THAT? It won't be the last game in the series. They work on. Well there are also people on the team. For whom half-life. Alex is their first time working on the series at all and many of them. Certainly hope it's not the last Walker stated we absolutely see half? Alex returned to to this world. Not the end of it Walker Walker was also asked about whether or not Alex will answer. Some lingering questions left by half life episode two. Although he doesn't provide a definitive answer he does suggest that quote. It's not a bad idea for place. Where refresh themselves on the event of episode before? Starting half-life Alex now Gary Your big half-life person corrects you. Let her bag. How does this it with the idea that they want? They want to continue forward with half life after Alex. I'm super excited. About how fly again for a lot for a lot of younger again. This is one of those things. That's Kinda illustrated. How old I am one of the really. You don't remember half life one of the all time greatest games but you have to be old enough to remember it. Yeah as I certainly am I really excited about Alex by itself. Gameplay shot this week did you watch it no because I'm on blackout. I I WANNA go in as fresh is. I watched the launch trailer. But I don't WanNa Watch anything else. Fresh lie I'm not. I'm not playing the final. Fantasy seven remake demo. We WanNA in Freshman. The game comes that make sense. And so I'm very excited about the game itself. I most really exciting hoping that Alex is a big. I think it will be because I want I that to open the door to Mahatma Harlem. I desperately want episode three or half life three. Whatever you WANNA call it. Yeah I really really want And I really really hope the this leads to that in the short term right now. I'm just trying to figure out how the Hell GonNa play it because I don't have an index and thing I'm going to be at a scam WANNA buy one between now and then but I have no I have. I have generation one rift sitting around. I could redeploy quest. I wonder if I can. I can riff link my quest to the PC And I'll be. I won't be at a plate with the knuckles and all the really cool hand stuff like it might be good enough. Yeah ideally I would love to play like the old bells and whistles index version of it but like I even if I was willing to spend drop a grand on an index right. Now you can even get one now. I don't know if Kevin Do. We have an index in office. Now Okay for some reason I if you guys can't get one what fucking chance. Do I have although I did get those fingers? Did you get the butter fingers? No I haven't got well I got I got the job. They should be on their way. They on their way. I think they're on the way for both me and Greg Okay. So we'll see a care package. Do you like butter fingers. I recall they're not like my favorite chocolate bar. Benny I really liked. I liked the buzz but you know I really liked the peanut butter cups that they brought out a really good way. There are butterfinger peanut butter cups. Yes and this these. There's a square. That sounds awesome. Oh Yeah I might be the thing that converts me because Butterfinger me like be tier seat here. Maybe in terms of like chocolate bars like butterfly. If they're they're all eat them for sure and I'm like I'm not gonNA completely butter fingers but it's not like the first thing I'm buying at the store. I'M GONNA twix I I yeah I I'm going to raise. This is the is the is the God emperor of of of of chocolate. I don't think any. Cortez believe that was the Andy that we had this conversation with. Kevin the only thing I would put on the same level of like tier alongside. Twix is a kit Kat. I'm still going twix. Yeah kick is like a tier below twix from me. What's best for you Kevin? He's Worldwide Cup. Hold on Yeah Waking Up. Upc takes a few seconds. Come back he was. He relies backpacks. Okay we got it twix bar is. I think it's on its own level and then underneath that you've got a good snickers bar you know you don't think there's anything he would focus. I'm level as a twix. Y You don't WanNa sit here and be like almond joy. It's a little less house great. I'm all about enjoy. What about reforming joy? But I'm saying it's less it's on lower level. I don't much lower level I wouldn't say much all right so let me ask. I think we can all agree. Twit stands alone on. What's on the next several blocks? My thing is I feel like on the same level. As twix. As Roma's the reese's peanut Butter Cup. Oh No really be level for me. What's Reese's peanut? Butter cups is be levels too much peanut butter. There's no such thing I would I would I would I would. I would go tricks alone at atop below that I would put kit Kat for sure but classic I would put almond joy in there too. I love all about it like that all day again. Let me ask you. This is a conversation that me and Enron. We're having yesterday on the show half life three right. That's what we were taking place. Three and their sneakers got payday. No no I said to me. Snickers is too dense would rather milky way or three musketeers. I never in my life have been like three musketeers. Always been the candy bar that is like fuck. I guess I get three twos or milky white is a good option when you want a snack. But you don't WanNa feel like you've gone over reporting I've always. I always strive to feel overboard so but you don't really like that feeling when Eli but that's the only way I know when to stop Gary with a half life three. They announced the if they announced it. Let's say vow comes out after half life. Alex and I'm like Hey I have these two thousand twenty two. What does halfway three needed to live up to your expectations. Because I mean we're having this conversation because we don't have is associated with being groundbreaking and my argument is I don't know the last time we gotTA GROUNDBREAKING. First person shooter that like within the last generation. I don't think there's really been a groundbreaking I potentially. I mean not the last. We've got a ten ten for that reason. Why half life is the twix video games because it stands alone like I'm like dude tunnels coming out later this month so I'm excited do maternal. That's going to be a really really topless great shooter but it's not but now is expecting it to change the game reinvent what you expect out of half life and half life two did that they re they fucking changed the game and so Alex might do that. Vr And it's going to do stuff we've never seen before half like I. Guess what I have no idea how you do but so to answer your question. What would half-life needs to meet my expectations. Do what the previous half Life Games did is that. Roz Valley's genre changed the game. Do you think that's line up about a royale changed the game? Yeah but I I know multiplayer. There's more there's more room to do that in that multiplayer context than in a single player context like single player. First person shooter. How do you really do that for me? The last the last first-person shooter I played that I would say is closest to a ten ten first shooter is probably doomed. Twenty Sixteen and doing twenty sixteen like the context. We're having or the conversation we're having yesterday was tonight. Ten first person shooters. When was the last? What was the last ten out of ten first-person shooter and we couldn't really think of one right right. It's a good question. I mean as good as doom. Two Thousand Sixteen was it. Didn't it didn't redefine what you thought was possible in the shooter. Yeah it was just a very exact example of what a shooter it. Yeah it was. It was polished like hey ten Polish. You know ten out of ten like Like gameplay flow all this stuff. Yeah but it came out in. What got like eights nines yet? It's like what do you have to do to be a ten ten? I I I'll play. I'll play do Madonna when it comes up but I'm not I'm not expecting it to blow me away. Yeah whereas I half half again you have. I remember when half-life I came into the PC gamer ninety eight. There were people crowded around my computer at my desk label. What they could not fucking believe what they were seeing and that happened again with half life two. So maybe. That's the reason why. It's taken so long for valve to come up with another half because they know that the experts say like notify half three to live up to the expectations of its predecessors. It would have to do that. And that's not an easy thing to do reinvent a genre. I don't even try and do I think you just come out and make a very very excellent first-person shooter in call today. See to me I failed and I I feel like valves would say off of themselves than that but I feel like. There's not much hotline. Be just another shooter. Even even if it's a nine out of ten out of ten it has to take its place in history. The way that the previous games dared Chris. Rv writes in and says good morning. My questions for Gary as kind of funny is resident. Freemen night or friend of Freeman and with athletes. Alex less than twenty days. Away ways your hype level yesterday. Blessing Ron how discussion on what half-life needs to do to have a runaway hit in both the are and a potential half life three. What is your take on the same question personally? I can't wait just having another story. And one of the best universities. In gaming history has excited. I've ever had a great story driven true. Ftse in years. I downloaded doom from game passing. Got BORED IN LESS THAN THIRTY MINUTES IS LACK of story and fun gameplay mechanics made me long for the for the hey days first of all. You're wrong I forget your name. Let me scroll up Chris. You're wrong I'm going to stop you. Hear Dum dum had excellent game cakes. But I'll continue story and fun gameplay mechanics many long for the hey days of the story driven. Aps like half life in the first red faction which was an excellent game half life. Alex cannot come sooner. So what's your take on this question rate and this is kind of what we we've been talking about already but do you have any ideas on what could be. Is it just like? Hey you gotta blow me with something I want it. Can I mean I want it to continue the story again? Many people don't remember half life two episode two ended on a massive fucking cliffhanger. It's like it's like imagine. They did star Trek next generation. The Best of both worlds point a part one the ends with fucking picard turned into lacunas a bog. And Reiko saying Mr Wharf fire like and then they just never made the next one even. What the fuck valve through with half life and so I WANNA be. I WanNa be Gordon Freeman again I want to get back into that world again. Anything Alex I. I really think that it's going to scratch hitch and I think that its success is going to be somewhat cabinets by the hardware limitations hardware but I also think it has a really good shot more than any as being the first true genuine. Vr AAA blockbuster do vowel? That's where I'm at. When I saw the game play. That came out a couple days ago. I'll I looked like this special like this seems like it's the best. Vr Game that we've seen you know even with that. Enron was saying that it. Kinda underwhelmed him because what we expect from from Half Life. Something that is like new and groundbreaking. Vr can be that thing. Yeah but is is being is being the best VR game. This is a weird question and to a certain extent it might not even matter but is being the best argument to come out yet new and groundbreaking or do you have to like really like has to not only be the game the first game that liked truly truly kind of fulfills the promise of the AAA level. But also just beyond just say this is this is this is a phenomenal game like whether you consider the platform the VR. All this. This is a true success with a half life that can stand alongside the others. It needs to be that and I and I think there's a good chance at wilby. Fuck needs to get an index dude. GonNa make some calls when I get home. I'm shocked. You haven't figured this problem. They've been so they've been selling out is the that's the problem is I wish by one. You're not a normal person. Gary I'm not talking with us. You know how many Yemeni butterfinger bars I have at my house right now. I'm a I'm a very influential person. Kevin I know that the company's no it you flex those muscles number four EPA cancels Kevin's giving me right thank you jack. Up EPA CANCELS UNREAL. Fast Europe comes from James Bachelor at Games initiative is unreal fest. Europe is the latest addition to the growing list of events that have been canceled over concerns surrounding the spread of Noble Corona virus otherwise known as cove in nineteen. The developer conference was due to take place in Prague from April. Twenty ninth to. May first but an update to the events website confirms. This will no longer happen. Quote due to an uncertainty due to uncertainty around health concerns and travel. We made the difficult decision to cancel this year's event the company row epic. Games is working with the speaker to deliver some of their presentations through the through other events or via virtual platforms with more information to be announced in the coming weeks. The company has confirmed it is Still Planning Unreal Fest Europe Twenty Twenty One and it can. Gmt writes in and says happy Wednesday since. This is kind of funny coronavirus daily. Now I have a question I have yet have yet to see asked anywhere could manufacturing issues. All sorts of industries are having Impact the council launches yesterday mentioned a game that can't be announced because the collector's edition may not be able to be manufactured could be a contributing factor to is. Sony hasn't announced the PS five reveal. Van They're unsure of they'll even have enough consuls to satisfy demand in the fall. I see this potentially resulting in one one of two ways. One Bukasa launches are pushed back to early twenty twenty one to allow Sony and Microsoft. Build up a supply of consuls. That they wouldn't be able to be in the fall or to console launches. Go ahead as planned but causing shortages. That hasn't been seen since the launch of the week. Is this guy saying he? Hasn't he hasn't seen the question asked could. The manufacturing issues could affect the console launch. That's fucking talked about for the last several weeks. You'll never talk about on this show. If you like on this show we've been certainly have I feel we've lately we've talked about three mainly and mainly we'd been talking about events. I think we did bring up a question of of of consoles manufactured but that was like that was at the very start tune into Wednesday more often because I vividly remember sitting here with Gregg right next to me talking about this stuff and visibility saying like krona viruses. A big fucking deal and people are going to die and like I know this is the daily show but like whether or not you're fucking console is gonNA come before. Christmas is maybe not the most important thing we should be talking about right now. It will or it won't it's honestly I don't care if we have to wait a few moments for the consoles to come out if you continue to live your life if you had to guess though do you think it will or won't know now like the county councils won't be pushed to. I know they haven't even announced dates yet. So what are we? What are we talking? Microsoft has said Holiday Twenty twenty and I believe playstations also said holiday. They always come around that time. Because you want to be there in the giving season that makes sense if they have to push them they push him. It's not the end of the world. We there's bigger things in the world to worry about Gary. I'm interested to see whether or not the council out this fall but the fall is still far away if I want to know. What's coming to Mama? Grop shops today would look the official list of upcoming software across each and every platform as listed by the kind of Funny Games. Daily show hosts each and every weekday. Did it did did it?

Used on that one which one profanity like language though right what are you seeing? That is profanity is their visual profanity. Where are you seeing right building?

Because you're in the middle so you I'll tell you later on air looks like right now you know. Yeah that was it okay. Well I mean basically there's not nudity but it's like almost implied nudity with like I just look at the game playing watching justice carrying scrubbed. Look fine listen just trust. Just watch BS Love Your I. It is implied nudity for you. This is like certain parts are drawn but it seems like the the. The girl is not wearing clothes. It's weird it's weird house like any close Kevin shower scene. No but like there's talking like the girl so the girls in real human girl. The girl's like a candy girl of course and because she's a candy girl she doesn't have the features like you say no nip snaps. Yeah but it's still like in. Canada writes in and says good morning the PS two turns twenty years old. Today had one of the greatest video game libraries of all time. Why do you think Sony stopped supporting? Ps four games or do you think developers stopped slash. Never care to support it. A little over fifty games came out as part of the initiative with the last one being released over a year ago. I'm just trying to play the bouncer. Ps four but luckily I still have my original ps three skew that was backwards compatible. Hashtag remake the bouncer. Are you aware of the PSC? Ps Four Games that days candidates talking about here. Yes basically you play games like grand theft auto like all. The grants auto games are part of a dark cloud. Two part of it Manhunt a lot of Rockstar. Ps Two Games are on it. Yeah you basically play. Ps four and it seems like that hasn't really never really took off right past those. Why do you think that that happens? I don't know I will say this. I think I think in general one of the areas in which xbox has has historically had a bit of an edge over the playstation as they take backward compatibility more seriously and do a better job of it and remastering the old games and making them rea- vailable on xbox one. I kind of like Sonny's just never done that. Quite as well. And they have more over the top of the show. The playstation two has quite possibly the best game library of any console in history. Certainly the biggest and yet Sony. I don't think historically has done a great job. This initiative is cool but I would I would like to. I would like to see them. Get more into back compatibility and make a bit more available and can can i. Is there any way for me to play? Nba Street volume to no no not talking. Should yeah I I agree. I think the reason why they haven't done it is they just haven't sold him. We just can we do this. Can we dig up old playstation two in an old copy of MBA street volume? Two players. Thing I you and I should do that. I don't WANNA be. I don't WanNa be that. Guy. I don't want to be cocky or anything but like I don't get a kick my. I don't see you guys would have fun because I'm just I'm I'm GonNa kill you guys myself. I used to fucking kill at that. I'm not want to brag about video games. This is what I was talking about. Kevin do you eat the candy? Go I see yes. Oh Shit Yeah. Okay yes see. That's that's imply I mean? Let me look look look at the bottom. The bottom of the Stream Kendall thing And how how old do you think Girls Kevin? I Dunno not no is the answer not a girl girl this one on the Nielsen. Odd something we should not show on. Put up on the screen line. Can we do this? Dude I need to get to is there. Is it GonNa take to scrounge appears to copy of NBA back there? Do we have a? Ps Two is. How do you know how to stream a PS two? I guess Kuban all the time we have. Nba Street volume. We need a copy of MBA street. Volunteers that reach the best friends? If anyone's friends we're going to get like putting out the third signal. Let's do it dude. I be totally downstream. Nba says show. That's why I'm saying right now. Is that smoke? But I think they're I think. Ps PS four games On ps four probably Aberdeen because for the amount of work that they probably took to transfer those games over. Let's do it. Let's do a tournament. Would that be fair? Though to everybody else's office probably get smashed by both of us. I mean let me understand you will get back in the day but you going to pick up controlling sorts gonNA come back to you like this one hundred confident yes. I played a lot of ood confidence. Not Stop playing over the years. I've not played as much as I played it. I want to say like maybe two years ago when I I WANNA I wanna I wanna I picked up two years ago and I- dude. I smashed the homie new mayor near Washington. You know right now. It's all the best friends we need a copy of NBA street volume two. I'm might even still have a copy of because I don't think I have. I was so precious to me. I never gave it away. I'm ahead check at home because that will call me. I have either that Auburn out. Three I don't think I do but we've got. We've got to get one now. It's time to squad up Mr Mitchell. Mr Mitch. George writes in squad up four. Ps four and says for any camps in the Greater Toronto area or who play in the eastern time zone.

Oh she's bad guys right drake. Oh He's all right. I mean on your point of view I guess yeah some. There's some shady shade in there with a few things but overall killed here only only cool wreck things Let's see Greg is more plugged into the rap? Game than any accidents. Ios Mom does not get into that. Because that's that's a deeper by myself said Dude. You fucking care for four zero zero. Says it's called big shell talking about the MGM to like. Oh my God.

I just a little shoutout and love For All the students from win state during the broadcasting program that showed showed up. And listen to me babble For an hour and a half Just talking about podcasting and properties upon casting it was kind of demented and sad but social It was cool cool broadcasting major like you guys WanNa live in podunk. US for ten years. In Muncie Indiana is looking for right like if you get bay city or jumping for joy was it was kind of cool. I mean it was like they had a lot of good questions. They had obviously paid attention to staff and knew like the differences between podcasting and radio. And all that fun stuff and it was good it was. It was a great Chad. I really I really really enjoyed it. You know what else I enjoyed this weekend. I binged the entire series of Jack Ryan to land blue. Yes And it was better than the first it was. I thought it was way ED. I'm just saying I know I'm late to the game but I do. I believe that the reason why Kozinski got cast as Jack Ryan is is because Zach Levi worked chuck. Now would they look so similar they do know they do. I know Polish guys. I I like the same. I know I know he's still is so call him Jim Halpern. That's the only thing that I hate about it even like when Harrison Ford was Jack Ryan he was Jack Ryan. I didn't call them. Han Solo or Indiana Jones. US Goddamn Jack Ryan this when Jim Halpern because he gets it every once in a while gets it. She's got that at four. Th Welsh Murphy. Is Jim Classic. Jim Right there Bliss and this is this is classic. Tom Clancy if you like that stuff Just now I'm not gonNA spoil anything but they did bring in a little bit of a clear and present danger in episode one of Season Two It was it was sweet. It was well written. I mean I had to finish it in one sitting or I was going to die. It was that good so okay though I watched a good show we can to the new C.. Show with Jason Momoa Amoah Ofri Woodward on Apple TV's first reps odor out and it is really compelling why is he because the apple. TV and he wanted. Let's see I was going to go. It's because it's Jason Momoa right. It's got really great world building to be honest The story is a little rough but the world building kinda makes. Did you look past some of the story flaws. It's not a bad story. It's just not you need more than the first reps of the Fraser. Episodes are kind of setting the scene so this is kind of competing with though the world building the building is really compelling so I before I forget so I was home alone with the kids this weekend And once the flu burn through the entire House. How's that was that was amazing I took them to see the addams family movie. 'cause that's what they wanted to see which number one did not know? Oh it was a cartoon. It was a cartoon. I didn't know I didn't know the new addams family movie was a cartoon. Can I want to do it with my kid. Wanted to go see the spider man man like into the spider's movie. I didn't know that was a cartoon. Did you see the damn cardboard cutout when you walked in the joint no no because the cardboard cutout that's in the front of the theater is for Arctic dogs. which hey little shoutout to rocky Wallace WHO's one of our show host for the ner? Show her song is the theme Song Doc from Arctic dogs like she's been signed and she's like doing really really cool shed But no there were there. Were No cutouts start singing. Let it go. But I didn't get okay. So what was one of the previews was frozen too and I'm like isn't that like three years too late. Like does anybody still care about frozen and Eto no as I'm sitting there like my daughter's Dad. We have to go see that I'm like okay. Well that answers that question. My Five Year old was Elsa for Halloween and everyone knew who she was So no so did the watch the ADDAMS family movie But then took the kids home. And watched the two ninety s addams family movies addams family and then addams family values and they agreed that those were far better As is the pinball machine which is still the greatest probably the greatest pinball machines of all time superciliously is and he doesn't have no reason why is right there with terminator no sense why But that was always like if the the king of Pinball for sure segue bad segue I just WANNA I. I walked into the studio hot today. Not Looking 'cause I know a murder I already have. You were is crazy about this as I am about best buy. I don't like this is when I start to hate technology companies So around four years ago lower so we gotta we gotta read for automatic. The and it's a little thing. Not not the pointer sisters song. No no good song it really right and is it ought to nothing if you plug it into the cars diagnostics and it's AH talks to Bluetooth to the phone to your APP on your phone And I used to use it religiously for trip. Mileage expenses was perfect. It would show it would tell you everywhere. You went the gas mileage. You used it had A. It'll tell you error codes if you have an engine. Yeah diagnostic or yeah. If you had your engine light came on I would tell you you what it is it was pretty slick. I mean now granted the technology I think. Pass it by a little bit.

We've been preaching about all these years is when one of the things that always pisses office when the GM of the world. I'm calling you out. lays off an an aging workforce that was based on mainframe technologies and just fires them. How mother and then hires like twenty four year olds it just got their jt Sir and have no idea how the company actually runs in? Apparently there's a company called. Taas yes and it's a big one of the world's biggest processes of credit card and cashless payments basically what they did is they took. You know they have a whole aging workforce the the guys fifty nine his. Name's warn you thirty years. He's been in and out of working basically with mainframe databases databases You know would would people call you know. The dinosaur and company moved past mainframes and old databases right so they basically took them. And you know There's four hundred of his co workers. They all train them for cloud so we will we call it the purple squirrels. They basically took this entire workforce most of them are over forty five and did that did what we keep telling them to new. Yeah they basically You know he said it was quote was am I going to the the sheepdog. That's going to be taken back and shot in the head when you got some young pups ready. And they basically took them all and retrain them they put them through like boot camps and they were for all you know they all were familiar with the company in the other technologies readily really near issue of it You know especially when they're saying the you're not gonna find enough because right now all I can tell you right now. It's really hard finding town. This town The good ones are getting bought up and they're expensive and yeah. The bad ones are lying in the resume. And a AH they're not good So like for nineteen ninety nine all over again yes so basically really is So they had literally they got forty five hundred. It staff I'm sorry the forty five hundred employees. Thirty five of them are thirty five percent or not Basically took took online courses. Retrain them got ramped up to the new technologies or buying a now. They have a phenomenally. Happy basically workforce at with people not laid off. That are happy to be doing new stuff. Go figure yeah I know right. What effing concept I don't I don't get why more companies don't do I really don't This to the meat is like the perfect perfect environment especially with the autos you hear it all the time and in one of the things. It's funny I'm not to transition away but what I'm finding out like you know. The autos are talking about six month deploys. Yeah and they're talking about like people that are that I've interviewed recently. They did a subset of a subset of a subset of a task and that was their job for five years they did nothing. They built nothing they were like. I don't understand what some of these other companies until I win tag force ever forget. This guy's name Paul Johnson Paul Johnson. If you're still out there and listening what's up His entire essence of being was making sure that he created different colors of cars like that was his job K.. At Chrysler something to be said about that he wasn't in the line painting the cars. No he was the photoshop guy that adjust swap out colors and like in that was and he got paid a lot of money to just I k.. It's a black card. It's on purpose of blue car. It's a red car screen cars. A lot of thought that goes behind that is you get there. There's there I think there is. I don't know maybe because all he did was talking about how effing Porty I couldn't imagine not but like they have to have board like if you see. Some of those colors of these cars are like who thought that shit up all that barely. Paul did no no no no no. This is the guy who did it. He didn't get the dream. This stuff up that was that was just as essence of being right colors dot. Io came out colors dot right amazing. You hit space bar in a whole new Palette of matching colors papa so needless to say he drank drank a lot. Which leads me to do I I was? I was stunned by this story so I had no idea like. There's a whole thing about breathalyzer tests the came out That was like hey question them do not necessarily trust them like the. The State of Massachusetts who sits had to throw out eight years worth of convictions and eight years worth of breathalyzer tests us because they proved they weren't calibrated properly. They weren't tested properly. They weren't this properly they weren't. It's Steve You know this Huh business. It's been it's not. This has nothing to do with public safety. It is all about the cash. Grab that goes along with somebody asked. Oh you are but like but to actually see this in writing where whether it's New Jersey. It's the you know the state of Massachusetts. It's all this kind of stuff. Where like they've literally proven proven? These things are not reliable but when they spit out the little result that says oh you're a point one two well. Maybe you're really nut right. Maybe you're a plano eight because it's the same lie detector tests if you like Pucker your butthole you can. You can pass them right like you don't know about that. No Oh Google it googling pucker my. I'm I'm not going to happen. Google the way worse. But Hey you know what. The dumping is apparently FACEBOOK and instagram band eggplant Eh Dude. And the peach because they've been you as to prolifically for sexual messaging and if I want to tell my wife I'm making away eggplant Parmesan cobblers. I can't talk to dinner. What do you want for dinner part? I don't know but now it's time for Hotdog hotdog carrot corn on the COB hotdog. There's a I I didn't even throw this through. Did you see the post by any chance. It was floating around facebook earlier where an actual entymologist ranked and rated and critiqued like basically did a worse meatball sandwich ever on the ant emojis on the different platforms and like there's an ant like every apparently every platform has an aunt emoji emoji okay and he ranked and rated and critiqued the ADS Emoji on all these different platforms and it was. It was amazing. Like like on On whether how close they were to being Correct the crane allow. Apparently the one on Got I'm Marie. I might have been WHATSAPP or access was too large. Them had eight legs. That's not an aunt that despite her I'll do it's a stupid as facebook banning this crap and but yo you know what one speaking of memes and stuff Big winner the year. The two thousand nineteen go. It's going to go into two thousand twenty. The is it the drunk girl and the cat yes do nailing yelling girl and the cat. I love the variation that has come out. which is John? Claude van Damme Asian Guy Dude. It's the best John. Claude van Damme doing his like eighties. Whatever name is John Claude van Damme for you and and and then the bad the bad Asian guy from every movie including like doing the? Oh coast it's It's phenomenal what I saw that. You're on the group text. I think when I sent it. It's at there's a Coffee Cup and it's a university of Northern Tennessee is got. What's he word the handles right but if you haven't seen it it's basically I'm trying to think what the funniest ones like. The twenty years from now is the license plates and someone who was like. No it's like Jesus is Lord you're like Jeff Lord Yeah like they have cal at the glass and in and twenty years from now. It'll be. Oh my God remember this cat you child. WHO's awesome like that'll be? That'll be the team that was known as the Does your grandma like hey kids. Here's a picture Graham. It's like the twenty nine hundred poder with the duck lip super. They're at risk. Yeah you know. It's not dumb though but I I wanna I wanNA talk to you on. I have no idea how they're going to pull this off. Twitter apparently is banning all political advertising They should be earned not bought. And I don't don't know how you stop or draw. The line deary twitter as a company that has been around for what ten plus years. Now how is it. A company head has still not figured out how to make money. Just take dollars. I think because I and I say this As a continuation of the story that we talked about last week. With the whole. If you sleep on a casper mattress and you've taken a new beer. Whatever you've collectively those companies? He's lost two point five. Whatever billion dollars fifteen yeah I e twitter just just just take Zaka? Burke knows how to talk to shareholders shareholders sucker Brook said in a democracy. I think it's right for private companies to censor politicians or the news. Shareholders at gay is twitter even public. I don't know say Yank. Yes yes okay. Sure then what the why why would you. Here's the thing like they're going to. How do you even know if it's it's an astronaut? Most of those things are like hey tag add. It doesn't say Hashtag had no but it does say like promoted or sponsored. Yeah like twitter's there's gotten pretty good in terms of transparency in terms of what is actually promoted as far as I know as far as what I've seen right but there is. There is a big gray area in terms of what you can allow as quote unquote platform. Right your your platform but then what point do you become a news outlet or a journalistic do. Here's the thing like in the and this and this the whole platform and debate about facebook like they're not a news outlet it like it is not facebook's job to police the content that people choose to share but they are but they're not for the same mm-hmm reason no there is no eight. Eighteen has the pipes. They're not. Yeah it's not up to them. They're not a news. I love it. They're trying to police. Things exerted trying to act like a news outlet without saying where news well so then it's either be completely hands off which they want to be because screw content filters and or four is yours. Do you remember. We talked about this like six months ago. The whole Youtube crap and like original Youtube came in the game. Like saying we're just like. At and T.. Right we're just is the pipe. What is the mechanism? Were not. Yeah this what now that all changed and apparently this is all too much. I'm not a fan latest. No of your shit sucks. It should just get buried because it sucks and that's honestly like that's one of the ways that I judge who I'm friends with on facebook like if you're sharing that stupid shit they'll give you see a sponsored at clearly a sponsored Ad Post that is full of crap and you're sharing it you you're at at a minimum muting your ass maybe it was a Porta potty. You can't unfriendly anymore because then people call you out on it. Oh no I follow no. I'm I'm I'm good like dude. I can't have you in my life no I I need a filter for how many people right yeah. I need a filter for how many people have followed over the past year. 'cause it's like it's probably in the hundreds. I'm just like you know what I feel like. We should have jerseys with that number on the back it used to be able to fight us to be able to find that information easily. Remember when Burger King was giving walkers beyond followed fifteen people or something No Health facebook won't tell you how many people Tanu appear stupid plant-based Burgers a state. It's L. BR Bradley. Vegetarian tried explain the South Park episode or it tastes like Shit you got. I meant to shoot what I actually took a photo of it. I meant to shoot you a message. Edge Burger King is advertising the impossible Walker during South Park. Like one person president. Maybe Dude I can't figure out if that's genius or stupid a little bit of both yes genius yes tastes like Shit you care tell. Do we talk about this on the show those shirts. There's like forty places that shirt. Oh Oh yeah. Oh Oh God yes there is and it's going to go. I can't buy it because it's going to be not funny in like a week and then like you know and it won't shift for at least kind of like the me buying the me and you the white claw. UH NO LAW T shirt and I. I'm not wearing it still now. It's a city my closet. You stupid Good news what's good news. The writers Of Game of thrones are no longer attached to the next star wars trilogy. I mean so. We won't have like two movies of build up and then a third movie of no payoff phenomenal. Last one makes zero sense and Yeah R. Two D. Two becomes Emperor Laurie. Whatever whatever -posedly they rush through season game of thrones because of the star wars deal and then backed out? Yeah Yeah did Did you read the vice article by any chance that I sent over the Airbnb San and was holy crap that was deep. It was an obscenely long. Read Dude so the and the follow up to that was I think I shot it across the whole thing about like the airbnb like yeah. Yeah like that whole that whole scam system. Yes so this is the uncovered network. And I'm not gonna I if I read this thing a beer for we'd be for three hours But basically what happened was there Senator Burri waiting for their AIRBNB to open up in Chicago and the person called them and basically said hey the previous obvious guests you know Clogged toilet and it's flooded and he's GonNa get you another property until he can call a plumber and then he basically putting. Hey I've got at this. Other pro knows I've got. Yeah Oh yeah I'm GonNa win another property Basically it was like it was and it was a piece of shit. No but it's it's bigger it's better with cardboard. Yeah yeah but it's more but lay presented as it's amazing that you to say yes to it. They said it's three times bigger. That's good news because the bad news. And he goes basically eight cities in one hundred property listen listings and it's like literally they think it's an organization. Yeah because they're all using the same images yes same names same images same listing. Same everything I'm trying to. I'm trying to remember because I read it a couple of days ago. Oh yeah they they only Airbnb only refunded them like a quarter of it or like if you say yes and you accept that other booking your technically not canceling even if you get there and it's the shit show that those people outwith because by the time you get there you're like Oh my God this has been just such a train wreck of a day screw. It will stay here tonight and figure it out from there. We'll guess what you've stayed there tonight. So now you're on the hook for the booking. Yeah and then I mean I don't don't know how they got tipped off the number that they called him from was like out of Vegas or L. A. or something like it was an untraceable. Google voice voice. The area code was out of It doesn't sound like found the guy on linked in and he was connected to these three other properties finally getting connected to some guy at a call center. Andrew just handled the phone calls for them and so and so like the guy from that they found on. Lincoln isn't really affiliated with this anymore but he is and it was more on the story please for the love of God be careful an airbnb too. GODDAMN MARIETTA JUST GONNA follow up at the FBI.

Bart hi through two pregnancies and claims of been demoted on both occasions while a guy was hit while a guy was hired for triple her she was making a buck fifty a year two. He's not a bad gig but they hired a guy at triple her salary to handle shed and then of course the CO president who's a woman woman basically said.

Let's let's do the map but it's been a while. Yeah but now you know you're part of the alowed group And then not only that. You just started musk ox. That's terminate. Finally Oh my God I feel so proud of myself. He won't For the rest of this conversation but I guess you know talk to me where where where. Where does this brainchild come from? And what is it for crying out loud. Yeah I I keep asking myself that every day but So the out loud. You're bringing someone to marketing agency. So we all know the word influencer influencer. Now we hear that is a big buzzword. All the time which frightens me it does it does. But it's also by meals should be free. I have ten thousand followers. I hate at the arrogance Expectations gotta go but in terms of influence or it's been around since the fifties like listening to radio deejays. Hey lunch you wanted to go check out restaurant accent. You know when you go to the bartender send him DJ. Bob Tell me Jay Bob Sinche and it works. There's a reason why they put Michelob on an episode sort of friends. And all whatever the mini Cooper in the Italian job. Yeah that's all part of it. I get it exactly. So at the outlaw group. We're doing influence in marketing. We work with a whole bunch of brand's tell their story through these creators. influencers youtubers podcast. Oh Yeah and Instagram's twitch streamers you name it right and so the reality is a lot out of these. Folks that are advocating for different brands but a hobbies are smart. People may have come to recognize that. We don't necessarily need to always advocate four other brands. We can be the brand Dan so at the outlaw group of really good partners and managers for big creator rightful answers and we have ultimately created a new men's ends clothing and apparel line. which is musk ox go? Musk ox dot com. And we've done that with some really big creators so the whole idea here rugged clothing leaving the modern American male and I'm noticing a lot of the photos that are scrolling passed me on the homepage right now are either a you looking confused or be you doing that. Hey coming up next on Fox. Exact like shelvin buddies the with Ralph Ralph Lauren and also Lauren. No no there's no no off affirmation you set it properly. I'm like wait a minute exactly. It's like Jessie Spano thank you. She's saying the right way Andrea. No it's Andrea Martin. Yes thank you thank you. So so the whole idea is lindsay. Actually knows what she's doing interpreted creating apparel as a fantastic designer and so we're bringing out together with creators who have a loyal audience and they're really really we connect with them and understand what they want and with that. We've created a men's apparel line which we're happy to get safe. I feel the I feel the obvious question. The need to ask in two thousand nineteen. Are you allowed to still be a rugged American male that. That's a great answer is yes the most days but but it's hard right. I mean the reality is we have a lot of time constraints I so many of us want to be outside. We WanNa gone on that that hike we want to go on that aspirational trip. And the reality is we're lucky if we can get a chance to go to the farmer's market with our kids right or we can we can go out for a run and the whole idea that we recognize we say lifted everyday adventure. Because we know you're all busy as hell you know whether you're working in Tak whether you're working marketing marketing whether rigging on the line we're all so consuming it's so hard to be able to get outside and so we we really aim to take these small elements of the technical experience outside ride and bring him to to everyday life. So this apparel you'll see release small things small zippers and hidden pockets and a Hoodie. Like who doesn't love a fantastic Nick Hoodie. What yeah and so we have these yes? Of course we have the kangaroo pouches really comfortable with a t shirt lining everything but there's a hidden pouch insider that zipper inside the kangaroo where you can actually put your keys and cell phone because I personally know. I've lost my wallet before when taken off a Hoodie. So it's a kangaroo. Those are like rouge when you were a kid. You remember those shoes. Do the the zipper poetry Hausky was in high school with a Kangol hats. There's still there's still around. Yeah Yeah Kangol. Word for kangaroo no no at kangaroo I think there was too but I don't think so this next. Yeah so is this like this is like what you wanted to wear or is this like what you think that like what people are moving to talk to me about like where you came up with the Or no you from past lives past endeavors all that kind of stuff and then I told you this showed up and I I saw this from you. And I'm like was he doing was always sport coat and Jean Guy with like the nice shoes and stuff and now he's got his low split. No scruffy scruffy beard. I knew you before. I don't remember the sport coat piece. I totally do always been able to rock that but let me bring you back to Great Lakes. Coffee Shop is bringing us back to. It yes still have the name years. Yes No uh-huh I guess was like did you try to fill a need. A niche like talk to me about that process. I think we have a lot of details credit to my husband complaining in for about a decade about his clothing and just things that he wished would work better for him. I mean there. There's no reason to try to like fully reinvent classics like a hooded sweatshirt but there are ways to update it and make it work better for you so there are a lot of what we try to think about when designing there's nothing more guys hate more than going clothes shopping and let alone. I'm trying stuff on like I would rather buy something. Take it home. It doesn't fit. And then like shipping back then mannequin shopper. Like I I'm the guy the EB you've seen me like I go and I find like one outfit that I like. Okay give me four colors of that shirt and like three pairs of those pants done done like that and I'm out. Yeah absolutely so what one of our one of our great partners. This is a gentleman by the name of that character so he's got a a few huge youtube channels Dell ranch awfully. I feel like I know that Nan. That ranch so he gets fifty million views among big great guy and he's he's a t certain jeans kind of guy you know deep in the heart attack so a Lotta times as t shirt and shorts because it's too damn hot to write to her to wear jeans and You Know He. He's a big fan of musk ox. You can even find right him advocating for it on on his on. The great thing is it's not meant to be fancy right. We're no frills company but we're also really really practical. Were you can look good. Would you know when you're on the ranch when you're out taking a walk in the hike you know whatever you WanNa do but also just in in the in the office from day to day perspective so you can do whatever it is that that you want and still look look good and feel good so the the whole idea behind mouse Cox's I look men like things simple simple to your point Dave and one of the ways that we can simplify things is to be able to look good in the office get away with business casual and then be able to go out on a on a Friday night and store the same clothes well it honestly I think that's and and as as sad or as great as it is like I think that's one of the benefits that guys have over women is that like are like I've learned so our sizes are sizes like unless you're ordering from places like triple xl is a small like by-in-large enlarge if you're wherever wherever store we walk into an excel is an exce L. A.. Thirty two waist a thirty two there was a shift dude. I remember when out of structure I had an extra large shirt. That's still fit me and I went to go try to ex and it didn't fit. You just got bigger but I still know the accident still fit. There was a shift. There was maybe be like fifteen years ago or so. It's been that norm ever like women no like a women only every berries everywhere. Apparently every store has their own sizing stuff. So that's I think that's one of the benefits. We have is okay. I know that size is what I need. GimMe but I find. Men are also Wayne Anymore affected by like how their clothes feel whereas a woman's like this hurts but it looks good so I'm going. We are way more function before four exactly whereas women are formed before function so point high heels for Moscow. Talk One of the things that we focused on was fabric. Everything is super super soft like brushed interiors so I do think that that's something that men really do pay attention to when they're shopping if it's if it's uncomfortable if touch it and it's not soft it doesn't feel good it's not it's not going over. Sure I'm all about the comfy like I got one of the hoodies ladies. They ordered it online. It's got the nice like Fleece lining on the inside and I'm like Yo. This is never leaving my side ever the perfect Yeah exactly and and if we can make you look just a little bit better and still feel tremendously comfortable. And we've we've done our job because we know ultimately that get for guys comfort is gonNA come. I'm I and so we always respect that and then it's a matter of. Hey can we make you just look a little bit better. and that's that's fantastic about Lindsay is. She's got that experience from from Alf. Lauren and vineyard vines is that like she's got. She's got that experience and knows how to be able to to to do that. So that's that part. Spend a whole lot of fun and seeing so so many creators. WanNa get get behind this and sort of influencers creators. And it's a lot more fun to advocate for a brand where you personally connected to the to the brand versus some big boat Bohemian. Lie appreciate you guys. Starting this on a shoestring budget I mean if they're using you as the model on the website I mean we had to make deal I was GONNA say Matic lead you lose that. Say a prayer for us the coin right. If I don't take over team I'll do it no so so if I go to go. Musk musk ox. It is shoulder surgery So if I go go career website like what am I going to find. They're like what kind of close my looking at. What what what's out there that I should pay attention to? We'll right now. We have a bunch of flannel shirts. We weren't we had a in retail like a pop up shop this weekend and that was probably like the number one biggest. Hit from the show certainly. Did you like set up. Shop next liquor craft brewery. Because I feel like that's where flannel shirts go. That sounds lovely. We're working if that's an option. That sounds great. I wouldn't recommend founders right now but yeah exactly but Just once we found once the customer gets their hands on it it like they. They make make a purchase in the big hit with the flannel shirts. But we also do like Brad said lots of different sweatshirts some great graphic tees so we started with some of those like super basics you can like easily fit them into your wardrobe so this isn't a subscription. This isn't a this is not a box. This is buying this shirt. And that's that's right but it but it isn't no bullshit brand and what I what I mean by. That is one of the things that I I think. We can all relate to this just exhausting when you go to websites all all the time and say hey entering your email address and you'll get fifteen percent off your first order or like that. We marked up twenty percent. Exactly you get thirty seconds looking for for the Promo Code to get it down to what the price really should be right. We're exhausted with with that whole approach and so we just said. Hey we're going to be really simple and we're GONNA be really directory. Maybe the best price we possibly can. And we're going to. We're going to give that regardless. If you share your email address with us are are not and to be honest with you. I'm GONNA be really excited to see us. Let's let's be honest. I will will pay full price to not be on your spam list. It's exhausting no the worst is when you just go buy something and then that's everywhere for the next month isn't enough.

It sounds like there's actually like some care and feeling that goes into this nonsense you guys actually really give a shit which is cool. Yeah we do. I mean we've invested a lot of time energy in an effort In tunes into creating the brand and creating our our approach it might be the wrong approach. We ultimately can't say that it's right or wrong but we were basically trying to set things up for what the modern American men which will appreciate which is comfort the reasonably good. No no bullshit and something that you can wear to the office and look good and wear to God on a Friday night and and we appreciate you not seeing curate said cure yet thank you. Did you avoid designees. Did you fully source. These is somewhere in between tops everything so designer fabrics designing the clothes all the CADS. The tech packs the fittings on Brad.

It's like if you you come up with something amazing like does she have carte blanche brad or do you like socks. We couldn't get there with the best though now. Yeah we had a little bit fall out more cold here cold here your warm here. But but but it's it's always an ongoing battle like hey how can you do something. That is a little bit different. A little bit unique really thoughtful but doesn't stray too far from what guys are going to wear at the end of the day were guys is. We're pretty yeah. Added the white new balance for twenty five dollars more. He's no all it. Does that post got so many comments. Did you see that. It's my entire family.

Whatever that's what I find? It is what it that'll I'll be in the closet forever like that's that's a challenge. You guys you guys said you had like a pop recently. Are there more of those that you're doing to try to get people exposed to the brand and that kind of stuff yet. The short answer is yes. The long answer is we don't know where the heck we're GONNA. We're GONNA do that cabinet. We WanNa make things again super easy for guys so it's all free returns. Turns right you you buy something you don't like it.

Blackout Day Economic Protest; How Newt Gingrich Shaped The GOP

"From NPR and WBZ are I'm Jeremy Hobson I'm Peter o'dowd. This is here now. New Questions are emerging today after the federal government revealed more information about which companies benefited from the six hundred billion dollar paycheck protection program people close to the president and other powerful politicians got some of those loans. We'll have more on that soon, but first covid nineteen continues to surge in parts. Parts of the country Texas is one hotspot. The number of people hospitalized in that state has doubled in the last two weeks in Houston. Officials say hospitals are one or two weeks away from being totally overwhelmed Harris County Judge Lena. Hidalgo joins US now. She's the chief executive for the county which includes Houston and which has by far the most Cova cases in the state welcome. Thank you so much for having Jeremy. Will and we've been reading about hospitals close to reaching capacity more than eighty percent full, not just running out of beds, but running out of healthy staff as well. They've been tightening the criteria for who gets admitted. Which of course can be dangerous for the patients who have to be sent home now you have said people should not wait to take drastic action. There should be another stay at home order now. Is Anyone listening to you? Yes and no. We had a stay home order initially back in March and folks worked together incredibly well. The community came together. We flatten the curve. And before we had a chance for the curve to come down on the other side to ten twenty percent of P., because they did another communities and other nations. The state opened up when they did that. They took away my authority to institute those kinds of orders, and so now all. All I can do is recommended. Put the community on our level. One threat alert and the recommendation under that threat level is to stay home now. The sense we have is folks are to some extent listening, but obviously not to the degree that they would. If this was an order, this was a requirement, so that's why I've been out of the king with the governor for that authority of for him to do it within Harris. Harris County will and the governor did change his mind on masks, and he is now said that you have to wear a mask in Texas counties where there's a certain number of cases. But what is he said to you about the idea of another stay at home order. It's an ongoing conversation. We've been in contact throughout this whole process early on when he's I reopened. Folks said is it's too fast? What do you think my sense? Sense was always i. it seems to me it's too fast, but we don't know for sure. Let's try to make it work and right now you know the months have gone by and what we've seen is that the communities that reopened later are the ones that aren't seeing this second resurgence, and if we just keep going the past war going eventually, we're GonNa have to institute something of a stay home order and we put folks. Folks in the worst position economically is we don't have a sustainable coexisting relationship with the virus. A lot of people would point to the fact that the number of deaths in Harris County is just around four hundred, relatively low, considering the number of cases just by comparison New York City is had more than eighteen thousand deaths from covid nineteen first of all. Are you worried? You're going to get to numbers like that and secondly are the. The economic of a shutdown in some ways more devastating than the deaths. At least that you're seeing so far, this is such an uncertain buyers. We're all learning, and so you can never discount whether we would get to that kind of a death rate of course right now is relatively low. The issue is though, and you mentioned it. A the top of the show is when your ICU goes from being fifteen percent cova to forty. Forty fifty percent Kovic you're having to turn people away? WHO probably shouldn't be turned away I? Mean if you if you end up Nice, you want the best treatment possible and there could come a point in which we can't sustain the strokes. The heart attacks is dialysis pregnant women who need to give birth, so it's not a sustainable long term strategy. What is the sustainable long-term strategy is to bring the curve down. Have that pain of? Of course shutdown, but then reopened more sustainably, and for the longer term. That's what we have to keep in mind, but I do think it's important also to take a step back and think about what doing here. What we're saying is that it's okay for hospitals to be stretched in doctors, nurses, and for people to fill those hospital beds, irreparable damage to those folks, and just not the way we should be thinking about human life. The Texas GOP Convention is coming to Houston next week. That's six thousand people. Do you or the mayor have the power to stop that if things keep getting worse? Right now we've tried to figure out if there's a thirty that I have to stop the convention. The issue is the all indoor gatherings are loud and so right now I. Don't have the authority to shutdown these indoor gatherings of any kind and I. Don't think it should be taking place just as I don't think any other gathering should be taking place. I can't speak for the city of course, but presumably you know they're under the same issues which is in. That were given. Does it surprise you that you're in the situation now? Five months after the coronavirus really started to take hold in the US. You know it's it's unfortunate. It really is because on the one hand. It is a new disease. It's something we're all learning about on the other hand. It's not such a mystery what curves it's bread, and so it's hard for me to watch other communities, other states, other countries that really have been able to bring that low down, make tracing testing successful to slowly and be able to react quickly. Shut back down if things aren't looking good and and we. We don't have that and I know we can have it, and so that's why I'm saying. We have evidence of how can make the successful, so let's do that. Let's stop the wishful thinking. We tried it once already, and it didn't work, so it's time to move on. Be Proactive and get in front of the virus. That is Judge Lena. Hidalgo of Harris County Texas. That's the Houston area. Judge Doug thank you so much for joining us, thank you. We are getting new information on exactly who received federal money that was meant to help. Small businesses avoid layoffs in the pandemic, according to new data from the small business administration, a number of companies with connections to the president and powerful politicians from both parties got loans from the paycheck protection program, and now there are ethical questions. NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Granola is here and cloudy. Let's start with people or companies close to the president. Who got the loans sure I? We should note that this information is coming from federal data release issued yesterday and. And reported that the Small Business Administration released this list of businesses who pulled loans between one hundred and fifty thousand and ten million dollars through the program and members of Congress media organizations were part of the group pressuring this release and what we saw overall as restaurants car dealers lawyers were among the businesses that borrowed most I'm for these programs that said we saw businesses connected to politicians, including the president were among those receiving these loans. The Washington Post for example reported a trump organization partner in a hotel and residential tower in Waikiki. Received a loan from the paycheck protection program in the range of two million dollars to five million dollars. Now what we understand is that this hotel and tower isn't and by trump or his company basically this company. They are called iron gate as Rep. they used the trump name under license from trump, and so this is how they operate in also reported by the Washington Post. We also confirmed. Confirmed as well with NPR is that companies owned by the Family Jared Kushner? This is trump's son in law. The White House senior adviser. They also received several of these loans. One of those companies for example is Princeton forrestal. This is a company that works in real estate The hotel business and Princeton looked to get alone of anywhere from one to two billion dollars. Let's go through. Thank you, yes, thank you million with an m. let's go through just a few more here. There's a company that appears to be connected to education. Secretary Betsy Devos received at least six million dollars, and it's not just Republicans. There are companies. That have ties to the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got alone so did the research arm of the Congressional Black Caucus. What do we know about? Lawmakers benefiting so in terms of lawmakers we we have understand from reporting from the Washington Post Politico Bloomberg News of said that businesses with ties to nearly ten members of Congress Republicans and Democrats as you noted including Speaker Pelosi received loans. Loans through this program for example Bloomberg News reported on this one case involving Pelosi's husband. This is Paul. Pelosi is a minor passive investor in the firm is what an aide told us? The name of the firm is E. D., i.? Associates assistant investment. Company and Pelosi's aide told Bloomberg News that. He was not involved in the loan, even aware of the loan. However, this company did get a loan. From P P P in the range of three, hundred, fifty, thousand, two million dollars and I'm sorry. Are you sure so but people may be thinking look as long as these companies are keeping people employed who cares? There's no real law prohibiting. Them from getting money in this case, but do you see any signs of wrongdoing? Especially, because a lot of businesses weren't able to get these loans. Right we are seeing that a lot of businesses were left behind with the PCP program, and that's that we don't have data on demographics. For example in terms of minority owned businesses were still not clear who was missed out on these loans that all said. We've heard that argument is well. These loans in the end were aimed towards keeping folks employed in the program has been very successful in that sense and lawmakers. Lawmakers are now talking about a new relief aid that could include new funding for the PCP program, and perhaps it could include some new requirements into in terms of who gets them so in terms of wrongdoing. We don't have any kind of official clarity that anything like that happened there as of yet, but it's something that we're hearing from lawmakers. They want to have addressed NPR's Claudia guerrillas. Thank you, thanks for having. Listen to these words from president trump especially how he described his political opponents on the fourth. Of July, we are now in the process of. Defeating the radical left the Marxists the anarchists. The agitators the looters. And people who in many instances have absolutely no clue. What they are doing, the radical left the Marxist the anarchists or next guest says those hyperbolic descriptions comes straight out of the playbook of former House, Speaker Newt Gingrich Princeton historian and here in our Contributor Julian Salazar writes about Gingrich in a new book out today called burning down the house newt, Gingrich, the fall of the speaker and the rise of the New Republican, Party Julian. Welcome back and let's start with the rise of Gingrich himself. He was first elected to Congress from Georgia back in Nineteen, seventy, eight. Who was he? He was a pretty unknown Republican. He had gone to emory as an undergraduate before that he had been an army brat spent much of his life. Living in different parts of Europe until finally settling in Georgia, he'd also had a PhD in history from Tulane and taught for a little while at West Georgia College, but when he comes in in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy eight, he's one of the new generation of Republicans and he was very committed to being part of a Republican Party that would finally have power in Congress after Democrats had controlled the House and Senate since nineteen fifty four, and he saw that one way to get. There was to go after the corruption that he saw from the Democrats controlled Congress. That's right. Gingrich really understood that he was coming to Washington in the shadow of Vietnam and Watergate. There was a lot. Lot of distrust of government, and rather than focusing all the time on right versus left, conservative versus liberal, he went after the Democrats. He called them a corrupt democratic establishment that maintained its power unfairly unconstitutionally. He used all the language that he could imagine for his partisan arsenal, and that's how he focused on bringing down the Democrats making this choice between. Did you want the establishment to survive, or did you want a new kind of politics to emerge and the Democrats didn't see that coming after Watergate. They didn't totally see it coming. Democrats had passed many reforms in the nineteen seventies to make Washington a better place. They had instituted ethics reforms for example that tried to hold leaders more accountable. They had changed campaign finance laws, and a new generation of Democrats had entered, and and they thought that would be sufficient, and they didn't really see how far Gingrich was willing to go, not only in this line of argument, but in the way he attacked them. They thought politics. Many of them like Jim Right thought politics was still going to be played by the old rules, and they didn't understand that. Gingrich had a whole other kind of political. Political game in mind well and talk about the language that was involved with that game that he in mind how he used words to make point and make it stick with the American people. Yeah. Gingrich was a politician who thought a lot about how you frame an issue. And he thought a lot about confrontation and saying things that were explosive, because he believed that the more confrontational, the more outlandish you were the more the media would. Would cover you and the more the media would replicate what you said about your opponent, whether it was true or not true, so throughout his career Gingrich said the worst things about Democrats in Nineteen eighty-four he would go on C. Span all the time speaking from the floor of the House, basically accusing Democrats of being unpatriotic and not supporting Ronald Reagan's efforts to fight communism when he goes after Speaker Jim Right in one, thousand, eighty nine, he. He essentially criminalizes the speaker arguing he's trying to fill his pockets at the expense of of tax payers, and even distributes this memo through go pack. It's a a Republican organization, Nineteen Ninety to teach Republicans how to speak like Newt, and he tells them use words like corruption traders, sic radical as a way to describe your opponents, so language was essential to him in large part, because the right language would get you the attention that he needed. Well and speaking of attention. Of course the media was essential to him as well he was rising just as cable TV was in its infancy. You mentioned C. Span here. He was in January nineteen, eighty, six on the House floor, talking about the federal deficit carried live by C. Span. We can do the job. We can pass the bills. We can work it out with the president. So that'd before October one. We put in place. The kind of sound defensible realistic program that in fact, the country deserves that the Congress oh thank you Mr Speaker. Now that speech was delivered to an Empty House Chamber, but you can't see that on C. Span because as Gingrich new. They only had the camera on the person who was speaking, but he knew that people were watching, and he turned it into a battleground. Here's a moment that features then house speaker. Tip O'Neill the Democrat in May of one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four. My personal opinion is this you deliberately stood on that well before an emptied house and challenge, these people and you challenge their Americanism, and that's the lowest thing that I've ever seen in my thirty two years in. CONGRESS MR SPEAKER IF I may reclaim my time. Let me say first of all. I moved. We'd take the speaker's words down. That was a stunning rebuke for a tip. O'Neill and it was just what Gingrich wanted. He wanted to go Democrats into responding to his attacks. That's exactly right. That was called Cam Scam. This was one of his first big moments in Washington and he and a group of Republicans gone on every night, and made these blistering speeches about specific democrats and viewers didn't know the chamber was empty so when Democrats didn't respond to the charges. It looked like they were guilty. And then when speaker tip O'Neill turns the cameras on the Chamber and shows it's empty and when he makes that speech about Gingrich, Gingrich doesn't stop. He says look. This is my point. And then the kind of icing on the cake was that all of the national news networks covered this story, and for the first time because of the Confrontation Gingrich was on national television, and he really arrived as a figure, so he understood how to play the whole new cycle in that story of Cam scam incredibly well. And he brought down a speaker as you write in this book, and you mentioned Jim Right, so let's talk about him. How did Gingrich take him down? And why Jim Right replaces or succeeds tip O'Neill as speaker in nineteen, eighty seven. He's an old school. Texas Democrat believed in the social safety net. He was not a dove, but he also believed in restraint overseas, especially after Vietnam, Gingrich picks up on stories that had emerged. Emerged in the national in Texas. Press about right and there were lots of different stories to he really hones in on one right sold these books that he published in bulk to groups before he spoke to them, which was not an ethical violation, didn't break the law, but it did look so good and to. There are these stories that right had been in business with a real estate developer back in his district again. On ethical, not illegal but Gingrich took these stories, and he blows them. Peace says this is proof that right is the most corrupt speaker in American history, and he whips Washington up into a frenzy and right is caught off guard. He thinks he calls Gingrich. Gadfly says you just have to Swat them away? But right is wrong. The ethics committee launches an investigation and before they're finished right is under pressure to resign from his position which he does, and it's because of this that Republicans decide to elect. Gingrich was seen as this bomb thrower who you stayed away from into a leadership position to becoming House minority whip, which was his path to becoming speaker. Well, and here's a little bit of Wright's resignation speech on May. Thirty First Nineteen eighty-nine. Both political parties? Must be resolved to bring this period of mindless cannibalism. been enough of it. Julian how much of the politics that we see today and I think people would be forgiven for calling some of it mindless cannibalism. Is directly drawn from what Newt Gingrich did back in the eighties I. Think a lot of it I think the prioritization of partisanship over governance, which was a big decision within the Republican Party. When Gingrich becomes the leader, it lasts through this day and Jim Wright thought by sacrificing himself by making that speech in issuing that warning that it would stop. Gingrich had no intention of stopping and more importantly. The Republicans embraced his tactics and. And you've seen several generations of Republicans. The Tea Party generation that comes to Washington in two thousand and ten, and now Donald Trump in the presidency that have gone according to the Gingrich playbook so so I really think you see the origins of this not just partisan era, but fierce institution destroying partisanship I think the Republicans embraced more than the Democrats it started in the nineteen eighties stays with us right to this day. That's Jillions, Eleazar who's new book, is burning down the house Newt Gingrich the fall of speaker and the rise of the New Republican Party. You can read an excerpt at here. Now Dot Org. Julian thanks so much. Thanks for having me. The Dakota access pipeline will soon run dry after a federal judge ordered it to shut down for environmental review, the judge said the Army Corps of Engineers failed to answer big questions about the risk of oil spills when it approved the original federal permits for the project, native American activists, and others have protested the pipeline for years even after it started moving oil in June twenty seventeen. That includes Linda Black Elk, an ethnobotanist and a member of the Taba nation who works on the standing rock reservation in North Dakota. Dakota. We I spoke with her more than three years ago during the standing rock protests, Linda, welcome back, thank you so much for having so back in two thousand sixteen. You told me about protesters coming down with hypothermia, suffering broken bones during these protests so today after this decision to drain the pipeline. You feel like that sacrifice that you and others may was worth it. Absolutely, there's no doubt that everything we've gone through even in the time sense because we've all been experiencing various levels of of trauma and anger. Frustration since then, but it's all been worth it. Anger and frustration because I assume because the pipeline is under operation half a million barrels of oil every day, since two thousand and seven I should point out with no major spills, either in the company that manages it. Energy transfer says that oils now going to have to be moved by rail cars, which has other environmental risks to think it's possible that this ruling just kind of opened up new problems. Well I think that the fossil fuels industry creates all sorts of problems with all the various ways that it moves oil across our traditional lands, and I am actually really happy about this ruling, because at least we will have a voice in the way, this oil and this pipeline impacts our water, but not just our water our land as an ethnobotanist. You know of course our traditional foods and medicines are really important to me and. A potential leak threatens that the company also says that tribal governments could lose out on a lot of money in taxes and royalties at the pipeline closes. You say what? I say that our environment is more important than economics. So, there's going to be an appeal as I'm sure you know, and once the environmental review is over. This is the review that the judge ordered once. That's complete. The pipeline could flow again. So are you hopeful or worried about the future? What's next? I would say that we are extremely hopeful. A lot of folks didn't think we would make it this far but now we at least we have that voice. We have that environmental review which should have been done in the first place and I think that a lot of us would not have been as angry or as adamant about you know stopping the pipeline if we had had that environmental full environmental review to begin with, so there has been no major spills yet. That doesn't give you any comfort. Not at all, no. We. We have a saying when it comes to pipelines, it's not if but when the pipelines only been in operation for a couple of years. All pipelines leak eventually all right Linda Black Elk, who protested with the Standing Rock Sioux against the Dakota access pipeline, celebrating a decision by a federal judge to shut it down for further environmental review. Linda. Thanks for your time as always. Thanks so much for having. Today is Blackout Day Twenty Twenty when many Americans are planning to keep their wallets shut unless it's to spend money at black businesses, the purpose of the day is to highlight the spending power of black Americans estimated to be about one point three trillion dollars a year. That's about it. The entire GDP of Australia for more. Let's bring in Robyn Farzad. Host to public radio's full disclosure on member station. Vp Em Robin tell us more about blackout day twenty twenty. WHO's organizing this? It said to emanate from the social media appeals of Calvin martyrs and activists in Texas. He took to youtube earlier in the spring. I'm quoting him. If we get enough black people black people, we can unite like they did in Montgomery Alabama. Where not one single black person wrote a bus, he said in that video that right. There is what caused the civil rights legislation to come, and you've seen all sorts of people pile on, and it's. It's definitely been trending. Well people piling on and companies piling on as well right. Not just black Americans are participating in this, but other allies as well. That's right. It's the multiplier effect in the veracity I think of social media. The idea here is demonstrate that if you will but black wallets. You take the spending of people of people of Color for granted at your own power peril, so one very high profile ally was Netflix, which is depositing one hundred million of its cash and blackstone banks I learned that there they're only twenty one black-owned banks in the US, and they're predominantly located in communities of color and capital and strain, so you can imagine how much that would help downstream. Now when we talk about downstream, we talk about black owned businesses in this country. How have they been faring in general? During the pandemic, there was a recent report in the National Bureau of Economic Research that the number of black business owners actively working that plummeted forty one percent from February to April, and that was a of about four hundred and fifty thousand black business owners. That is massive. So. You know active white business owners that clip dropped at seventeen percent, and I think it underscores how fragile that community is. The gains were so live, and they were gonNA disproportionately. Take the hit of depression like this. Well. We've also heard that because many black owned businesses are small, and amid we only have a few employees. They haven't been able to take advantage of the PP loans like larger companies. That's right, but I will say that even though you could dispel those numbers and say that they're small. They're penny ante. The moral suasion is huge Jeremy. You look at Nascar and the confederate flag. You look at Antrim and cream of wheat finally relenting on their iconography so the allies. Allies in community give that movement a huge multiplier effect. Robin Farzad. Thank you, thank you over the weekend. A seven-year-old girl was shot and killed in Chicago, a headline that got lost in a wave of pandemic news. In fact, it's been a particularly violent summer in Chicago in June five hundred sixty two people in the city were shot, but the group's trying to keep the violence down. Say there are signs. The efforts are working Patrick. Smith of member station WBZ as this report. On a Wednesday in mid June a group of about eight guys were hanging out on a corner on Chicago's west side. They're talking joking. Drinking bottled water from a cooler on the sidewalk. Three of them have grey shirts on with the word peacekeeper on the back Ed, Harris Cornell, Graham and the race Nelson. We all peacekeepers, we basically. Step in and stop any confrontation that we seek to grow and Beeson bigger. These guys are essentially the first wrong on a violence prevention ladder. The city is trying to build up Harris Graham. Nelson are all from this neighborhood. Their lives and their bodies have all been torn by gun violence. All three of them have been shot in the last few years Harris will. He was walking up to his house. That's just a few blocks away. I was walking in the house. Somebody just don't cost you. Were they aiming for you? Definitely thirteen times. I don't WanNa. Drill on your path, but would you say you guys were at one point had a part of the problem out here or no. On going to comment on his. Is, it's just got got. Adapting. Survivor get by over here. Is that like you had to carry a gun? Nelson's shakes his head. It's clear he doesn't want to answer that question on Tape Graham jumps in this situation that you guys shot and you scared. To think a dual if you've got to come outside. Case Dan? How's your whole life? I ain't saying carry a gun. To do and you got shot you on. The won't pull up shooting on the what's going to happen you? Sometimes. You gotTA protect ourselves. Now these three get paid a stipend about four hundred dollars a week to stand out here and try and keep the peace mostly. Their job is to keep the guys. They know the guys they hang out with from shooting. Stop people from doors turn. Stop the next week we can. It's a small goal, but the people behind it say it's a necessary first step to build real lasting peace, and they say it's already helped. Prevent this terrible summer from being even worse an example a few weeks ago, some young guys from another neighborhood came through the intersection, throwing up gang signs. It's the sort of thing that can prompt a shooting. This time. It led to a phone call and an apology. Being disrespectful. Basically, it's where they want. Post the BE, it could've we could've fault. Somebody could have followed them down wherever they was from. And you know what I'm saying, but instead we called outreach workers. And so my man Taylor. been peaceful keeping peace. And they called them, and they call apologize, and they talked to the people that never happened again. A conversation I before shots get fired. Is is exactly what we need to happen Jalen Arthur with the violence prevention group Chicago cred says that incident is actually how his program was designed to work peacekeepers with close ties to rival gangs, holding their own people down, and now they have what they look what they see as opposition coming into the area. They could easily just start shooting. But, but instead because of the way we have it set up. There's a line of communication. Harris Graham Nelson are part of a program focused on so-called violence hotspots around Chicago. There are seventy five corners around the city where credit is paying people to stand out and keep the peace. It's called the flip program and Arthur is architect. He says the goal is to start by getting rival factions on defense. He's not even talking about convincing group to put the guns down just trying to get them to stay on their own turf. The thing is though we already know. Of Loss on all sides of the equation it's hard for a lot of people to shake those losses, and so the the the reality is, it's not like everything's just gonNa stop instantly overnight. We got communities in hot spots that having gone a day or a week without a shooting. Go a week without a shooting. We can go two weeks. We go to weekly can go three weeks. We go through a month. Summer in Chicago has been unusually violent even for a city that averages around five hundred murders a year. One weekend in the middle of June more than one hundred people were shot throughout Chicago, thirteen of them killed. Jalen Arthur sent me a map of the shootings from that weekend. Here I'm looking now. Okay, so let me tell you something real quick. Just had this the super violent weekend. The map shows most of the violence happened away from the hot spots where the peacekeepers working. It's not exactly a scientific study, but it gives Arthur some hope. He says they are meeting with their street outreach teams trying to find ways to expand their presence without more resources. Arthur says that's a difficult task on the Thursday. After that horribly violent weekend, anti-violence worker Chris Patterson is talking with a woman who son was one of the hundred people shot in that two day period. Period he's in the hospital now. She says and there's still a possibility. He could end up paralyzed if he recovers. She says she'll have a dilemma. Her son will find out who shot him. Patterson is urging her to seek peace, but she tells him that she may want her son to seek vengeance. She's angry and Patterson can't convince her to give up the idea of revenge before she leaves to catch a ride Home Patterson says he understands where she's coming from once. Violence affects you. You can't forget it. Right and so now violence becomes an option. It was a delicate balance for Patterson trying to empathize with grief and anger well trying to talk her down, you know part of her conversation was like yeah, part of me wants to seek retaliation, but the other part of me doesn't want to lose everything that we've gotten I. Don't want to lose my son. I don't want to lose my daughter. This is coming up some of the things she was saying. And that's natural. That's normal like when people lose people who are close to them, our array of feelings may arise. Bryce could be people who are caught cycle of violence. Violence makes sense for them. That's the way they answered their problems. It reminds me of something Graham Nelson. And Harris told me people call the violence senseless, but often there's real reasons behind it. They say vengeance righteous anger. After I talked with Paterson I drive to the corner where the guys are stationed. They are not talking. They too, were directly affected by the rash of violence over that previous weekend. Of, their friends was killed. Obviously, they are grieving, but there's something else. There's a tension in the air or at least I imagine there as Patterson explained to me that with the killing of another friend Graham and Nelson, Harris and everyone else out here is back to being hyper vigilant heads on a swivel constantly looking out for the danger coming around the corner. It's trauma happening right now. To these guys who were supposed to help, keep the peace for here now. I'm Patrick Smith. TIKTOK said today it will stop operating in Hong Kong. The company follows facebook, Google and twitter, all protesting the new security law passed by China to take more control over Hong Kong and tamp down on the pro democracy movement there. I spoke earlier today with the BBC Steven McDonnell on Skype from Beijing and I asked him about the significance of tectonics decision. The news came out that this was happening and they will scratching our heads wondering. Why are they doing this? I. Mean there are Chinese Company and. The state security place come to them and say. Can you provide us with the details of these users who may have been singing the Hong Kong independent song in the video or chanting something to do with you know, liberate Hong Kong Etcetera Etcetera. They stuck in a pretty difficult position as a company because their brand is gone if they just start handing this stuff over straight away to the authorities in on coal, so I think what they've done is the decided. The best thing they can do is just get out of there. And it may seem like a big move, but what's much more important to them? Is the US market and they're worried that if they seem to be assisting in any way with this new state security, low that the US government might just follow India's laid and band Tiktok in the US. Let's talk about the coronavirus. Because president trump has started calling it the Kung flu. He has long been calling it the China virus but in China Corona virus isn't really spreading anywhere near like it is a across the United States right now. How is that being a reported in China well? Yeah I mean of course paypal say these outrageous comments from the US president, and he's been accused of stirring up racist sentiment in the United States, and that type of thing by commentators here, but it is interesting you know here in Beijing we've just had. A sort of an outbreak came from a wholesale market and within A. Bit over months it's been brought under control. Today we had the first day with zero new cases again. According to official figures now let's. Acknowledge the fact that official figures by not be catching all the cases. Nevertheless it does seem to have been brought under control, and so I think that the Chinese government feels it has a good story to tell in its handling of the corona virus, despite the fact that this is where all the I clusters were. And, so without really rubbing it in in terms of the handling of the US government, they just tend to put it up there on the on the television. You go how we all going well. That's how we're going here in Sean How's the US going I just show the numbers show the the unfolding emergency there, and when you talk to ordinary people in the Straits there very critical of the US government's handling of it and I I suppose can't quite understand why the hasn't been able to handle it as well as they have. A, what about the overall relationship right now between the United States and China, we've had the trade war going on for some time. Then of course came the corona virus which the president has blamed on China. How is the overall relationship right now between President Xi and president trump and the two countries in general. You know interestingly in terms of she jinping and Donald Trump is Xi Jinping never personally criticize Donald. Trump, you'll notice. Donald Trump doesn't do it with him either. And so it's almost not the two countries of isolated them and their relationship, but it can be maintained in some why? Beyond that, though I mean the relationship is pretty toxic, they they're throwing mud back and forth and lately the Chinese government's being giving as good as it gets. You Know A. We've heard these conspiracy theories coming out of the United States, regarding the origins of the coronavirus. Will the response from the Chinese government, rather than just sort of to downplay this or ignored, is being thrown around their own conspiracy theories, and so we have diplomats for example raising the possibility that all this came from a US servicemen because they had these sort of military games, Beck in Wuhan. At the end of last year and I think that's that's where it all kind from well. Maybe it came from a a biological weapons facility controlled by the American military, so they just doing this because they feel like they're getting the same from the US sodden. So there's this new concept. It's known as Wolf Warrior diplomacy, and where it comes from a movie. Does this sort of patriotic military movie here? Here? Will now you get these Chinese diplomat's? They're out there on twitter and other social media platforms, defending China very brazenly throwing around conduct, smart Aleck language, abusing other countries and the main target been the the United States and I think again. This also built his down to the general population. In Sean you you. He people in the streets, abusing other countries being a bit more nationalistic in their approach. And when you mix up this sort of nationalism with a lot of ignorance about what's really going on because of the way, the media is controlled if it can be a pretty toxic ends, dangerous combination. That's the BBC Steven McDonnell joining us from Beijing Stephen Thank. You know always good to talk to you. And here now is a production of NPR. You are and association with the BBC World Service Jeremy. Hobson and I'm Peter o'dowd. This is here now.

Okay so she tells. The police breaks into the -PARTMENT. He goes to jail. So you think it's over right now. It's it's literally just the beginning. So six months after their break up her her phone buzzes from a tax from an unknown Floridian number. And it says quote. Prepare yourself for what's coming the last three months for just the beginning. I had bigger plans for you. I love how easily manipulated. You can be. Wow Yeah Mike. So now we're dealing with a full blown psychopath. Yup Yes so you get that message. You're like okay. This guy's this guy's an idiot. Whatever she's she's probably just ignores it right. Two months later castle back goes to the Maryland State Court and takes out an order of protection against her claiming she had physically abused him and was texting death threats to his cell phone. She denies the accusations. But the court instructions never to contact castle back then castle back told the authorities that she violated the order. He called the police to his home. Four Times in six days showing cops threatening texts and Tam from. Jk's number as evidence. She's taken into custody by the Baltimore police shortly after new years and thrown in jail. All my God. Oh my God. So he's apparently sending himself sending texts from her phone to his phone because he had been able to hack the phone he was. I guess he was able to hack into her most likely. I think what he did was he hacked into our apple. Id You know new new the password through it up on my message on his computer or his phone and then sent messages from her phone his phone. Oh my God i Yeah. I barely know how to get into my own apple idea. I can never remember the passwords. I mean it just and then it just spirals out of control so when she is locked up in Baltimore Kosova calls police back to his home and told the police offer that he had an active protective order against her but she contacted him twice that day. So the cops file a new set of charges against her takes. Her took her back into custody as soon as she was released from jail. So she's released from jail. He I guess he knows. Mya some tracking device on his fallen on her phone says that she contacted him. A SUSHI got out of jail and now she has a new set of charge against her. Then she gets locked up the next day and the just basically continues. Every time she got out he would. He would do this and he would have electric you know. He had electric proof from multiple tax. She even he even would send tax from her him like they would get back together and then the cherry on the cake was he sent a tax from her phone to his phone encouraged him to take his own life so now all she's got serious charges against her right so she's arrested again she's thrown in jail and now she has to appear before a judge who basically she was put on how so she went to jail. She's put on house arrest electronic ankle monitoring she's got appear before a judge. She has six separate warrants against her right just to just to unbelievable so during this so basically during the court process. It's revealed that a couple of things don't line up like once. The cops start to investigate. They take both phones like both physical phones and they they look in and then they see what he was doing and she eventually was. You Know Vindicate but was Spent Time In jail. She was on House Arrest. She was she had the. Ankle Brank Bracelet. Full nine yards. I mean I imagine you would lose your job during the course of all that all. Yeah a wired you work today. I'm in jail. Could you imagine being in the Baltimore? City Lock Jeez? This I mean that is terrifying in and of itself and the idea I guess I don't know the situation but it's like I. It seems so easy to get someone else arrested on. You know very little evidence or I don't know you think what like somebody would have done a little more investigating before you physically throw a person in jail. Well that's the thing. Because he had the the cops he they had the restraining order so they just assume that this was like continuing along a path that they've always seen right Yup and the other thing that he was using using spoofing which lets people send emails attacks appear to come from other people so he had a whole elaborate system to basically destroy his ex girlfriend. Like so what end you know? It's like well. He what he was found guilty of cyber stalking and placed on home detention and he's awaiting trial any potential prison sentence of up to five years. I would say he richly deserves that for making this person's life miserable a disaster. I don't know like it's amazing that you could get into a relationship with a person like that and I'm not throwing stones at her. This could happen to me. It could happen to anybody. And not realize what a nutcase they are like the depravity. Well I mean you really gotta be You really gotta be careful in the office. I mean this guy is a certified lunatic. Yes this is lunatic. Yup Ex that that anybody would devote this much time to I mean I could see devoting time to hacking people's bank accounts and stealing money. I mean there. There's a point to that to get money. I mean it scummy as terrible but to this I mean I think he was clearly upset. I think he was clearly obsessed with her on like very deep visceral level. And that's the other thing that the article doesn't go into is why what was the What was the situation that led him to this like he was caught cheating? Did he try to get back and then she refused and then he just went psycho but I I mean that's if she cheated on him you can see this. You know I mean or you can see her doing it. Because she would be the aggrieved party but he cheated on her and then turns it around in his own brain that she has somehow done him wrong. It's amazing what people can convince themselves of that. They've been wronged. Oh they know they can create their own reality. Yeah I mean this guy. This guy created his own scenario in which he is the aggrieved party. And somehow it's fine to get this woman thrown in jail. It's she deserved to be in jail. Matt Yeah according to his lights I remember this was a while ago too is when I had a facebook account and Somebody was I got like a couple of messages from people like long time ago. I don't remember all the details but it was like I had sent them a message about something like about a mutual friend and I was like you know they were asking me questions about what I said. I'm like I didn't send you any message about that person. I've no idea what you're talking about and it was. I don't know if the account was hacked but it sort like back then I didn't think about it that much but I mean now like everybody seems to have a packing story on their facebook account or instagram. But it was weird it was like somebody was sending messages to other people that they knew. I knew and it was like I never said that like. I don't know what you're talking about. So yeah well I mean you can also spoof so they could blast emails to all your contacts and just you know. Let's say your email. Is You know Matthew Kerr at gmail.com they could do matthew underscore Kerr gmail.com and then put your name. So it looks like it's coming from you and if you don't look hard enough you just assume that you actually we have that more. I think about it. I've gotten more than one email at work. That says like if you get this message. It's not from me like it's it's from some I don't know I guess they've been spoofed or whatever but yeah. I've gotten more than one where it's like you know don't disregard this message or I got one from a guy who's a friend of mine fathers He's a Catholic priest Father Harrington and get this message. He's in Paris and he doesn't have any money at all. I've I've gotten those on those and it was like from supposedly his email and of course I called him and he was like now. I'm not cramps. A yeah it's the same thing with like the Nigerian prince in I mean all this stuff sounds like funny and unbelievable but some people fall for it. Well there was a woman I heard on the radio WHO She was divorced and she was doing the online dating thing and she ended up sending five hundred thousand dollars to the supposed- guy a soap seat. Five hundred thousand dollars and it was a rating out of South Africa. And they just go on these dating sites and they they go fishing and She came on. She talked about her story. She didn't give her name but she said Yeah I. She's like part of my brain. Knew this must. There's something wrong with this but then I would do it anyway like he would you know he's he's overseas and his kid is sick. And he's gotTa send money but they have all these stories right. She was going to banks and getting loans money to send to the sky and she said she went to one five hundred grand nut. I thought she was going to say like five thousand dollars hundred grand. She said she won. One Bank and the loan officer was finally like wait a minute and he. He calls her into the office. And he's like I think you're being hoaxed like I think this is a a you know a fraud. So He's like I'm not GonNa lend you the money and you need to contact like he was really good to her. He gave her numbers to contact and things like that. She said Okay and she went to another banking got alone and she said she was like a heroin addict like she just sent the money. I mean it's a big issue at companies like information security and you know people clicking on links or emails and You know money. Changing hands or gaining access to databases is a major major issue. I'm still waiting to hear back. My two thousand dollar investment into the Nigerian thing. Because all they have to do is they just have to get the currency out of the country and then they bring it back into the country. He explained it to me very well. So I'm sure that shoot thousand is going to turn into twenty million once it all pans out. I'm set for life. I'm all good to go. I may just have to Nigeria to pick up my end of it. That shouldn't be awful. I recently got one where they wanted me to collect debts on businesses. I would get like a thirty percent cut but I had to front some capital her. Yeah what do I wire the money got much do you need? How much do you let me know? That'd be good side Hustle for the working experience. We collect money for people show up with a baseball bat. You know just oh yeah. Of course I would end up getting that baseball bat up. My and it's completely unfounded. Like the debt is. They don't know what you're like. We're not leaving. We collect after a while. You gotta be like. Here's five dollars. Just get out of here are beyond sounds are live would be like you. Deadbeats are all the same. We just have like bogus paperwork. Workplace Romances. Are I think in many companies? They are definitely like forbidden. Right isn't our policy and a lot of places. I think there is a policy in the in the policy is it's varying degrees and then you know enforcement if so. I I don't know like I think it's frowned upon. But I mean can you like for instance if you if you have a relationship with someone you both can be fired? Yeah I mean I think that could happen in some places. Yeah I think well you know what I think I think in most places. It's kind of a cover your ass type thing like if something goes wrong right. That was our policy. The company wants to be able to say look. We told you guys you're not supposed to be doing this so don't bring the stuff in here and yeah. I think some companies do like I mean again. Is it enforceable if they don't know about it if there's nothing going on in the office but I was I'll be putting together another podcast It might be a short one or maybe we can do a full one. This woman listed the dumbest things people have been fired for and topping. The list was people having sex in the utility closet. People getting caught having sex in the in the storage area or the utility closet or something like that and that she said that's an automatic. Firing offense like we don't allow that here. There's various reasons health code now. What a what a what? A party pooper a wet blanket. That is that one on all the time it was. Just I mean if I walked in onto co workers having sacks just be like. Oh sorry my bad. Shut the door and walk away. Yeah well she's like the head of the company so she if that gets back to her. I'm sure it goes on all the time in different offices that it's like don't get caught or maybe some offices don't care but then some would be like. Hey Look I mean what are you doing like this is a place of business like Jesus Christ again like I mean. There's I mean there's you know there's look galaxy issues with yes so there's always that fun stuff but I think a lot of offices honestly they just WanNa keep the drama out all right. I was thinking about this. I mean it's come up in my head sometimes like what? If I were dating a co-worker we went out a few times. Maybe went out for a couple months and then I decided I didn't want to date this person anymore and we still work together like how does that work you know. Or if she broke it off with me and it ended badly and I thought I had been used or she had disrespected me or something like that it would be. It would create issues to create problems. Most definitely bad feeling and I'm sure like my administrators. Just don't want to deal with it. I mean I've worked in schools where two people have been married like. They're having a kid and everything and everything's and I don't think you know the administration has anything to say about it but if you're married to somebody and you're working with them in the same school and then you got divorced and then you're working in the same you know it's the same thing you're dating someone like these. The two that we just discussed in the article is like and then you break up and then you're like in the same meeting and you hate each other right or you're like maybe your office only has eight people who work in you and her or Kim and six other people who all know your business and it's like do this is quite things. Gets things get sticky yet awkward to say the least? Why get like when we went to college? Our University was not that big in terms of how many people lived on campus. It was relatively small. It was yeah so if it was actually the majority of people were like off like commuters. Yeah Yeah and so. If you hooked up with somebody basically everyone knew it who know yet who view and then it was terribly awkward. Because you're never really going to see the person walking across campus. Oh yes so it could. It could be kind of awkward. You know so I mean you know in workplaces if you if the starts to spill over into meetings and you know like if I was the boss and unlike Janet at I need you guys to work on this project together you know Janet consequences. We broke up. It's really I'd be like I don't WanNa hear about this. I did the project go grow. Grow Up and get the project done but then you could also see the boss saying okay. Guess what. No one's dating anyone in here I don't want to put up with this But then always the flip side is these are the people that a lot of us spend most of our day with so and then you go out for drinks with these people after work and it becomes part of your social circle and I was reading You know it was like a tip about friends at work and I forget it was giving feedback but said look you gotta have friends outside of work. Like you've gotTa have people you hang out with who you're not talking about work and because inevitably you end up going for sanity for sanity purpose and certainly dating and things you know. I mean if you're living with someone if you're married to someone you're going to work at the same time every day. You're coming home from work at the same time. You see them during the day like there's no buffer zone you know it's rough. It must be rough. It's rough I've is wrong. I've never had that experience myself but I could imagine it could be somewhat awkward. Well I'm never. I've never dated anyone that I worked with so I can't. I can't speak from experience. No I mean I sort of did when I worked in the film industry but like you might know somebody on a project maybe date and briefly but then that projects that man that's different for and you might see them a year later but it's like so wide everybody kind of moves on. It's it's not like you're in an office in an enclosed space with someone for like you know ten hours a day. I love just to wrap this up. I love the backdrop that they were selling insurance. I just love. I love how these two people gravitated toward that profession. It all fits together so well after soon. Most people who work in the insurance insurance industry are kind of psycho anyway or at least. They're like they're always trying to sell yourself. I don't think you necessarily dream or want to do that. You're Kinda sucked into the black hole of insurance law. You need a job you know. I think it's why a lot of people get into sales because with sales like and there's a lot to be said for it because you don't need a college degree to sell stuff. You need a good personality you know base right and you need to know how to read people and some people could do that very naturally and they make a lot of money outta and I don't think like a car dealership could care less about your masters degree and fill in the blank. It's like can you sell they? Just they just care about the The sales now autumn line. That's me I'm all. I'm all up. America's selling cell always selling my sales technique has head. You want to buy. This car is pretty good. Oh you don't okay Who God. I don't know that I get into like listen. I'm really struggling financially. I could really use the commission on this. Can You please buy it? Can you please like and they didn't call your your son in Asia? Hey Pete come over here yeah. Pete hasn't had new sneakers about sh six months and I like to call them close and I say look. I'm just GonNa let you in on a little secret here between us. If I don't close the sell my wife is going to leave me okay. She told me that this morning. All right. It's it's the remember that Will Smith movie pursuit of happiness. I haven't seen that because it seems kind of depressing but oh out is we. We just re watched. It might my son's hadn't seen it ninety. Five percent of the movie is depressing and then the the last five percent is inspire. It's you story true story but man. It is. Just it's brutal. He's like a grown man who gets kicked out of his delayed off from job or some the end is just kind of like his. He was selling bone density scanners and no one's buying 'em his wife leaves him. He gets kicked out of his apartment. His car gets repossessed. He's like living in homeless shelters and he's doing unpaid insurer internship at Dean Witter and he finally gets the job at the end spoiler alert but it's brutal. Get their brutal. I WanNa say that at the next gathering. What are you doing still teaching? Well actually know about jumped into a new line of work bone. Densities you should. You should watch it just for that. Because he had to prepay for the bone density scanners put his life savings into it and then every time he sold one he would make a profit. Yeah one of those schemes. It sounds like the knife place that I was going to work for in college where I had to buy the buy all the inventory. All the risk on you. That's right yeah that's right and I realized I'm the customer. They're selling lives they. Don't they could care less school. I sell knives or all had to do was lay out two hundred and fifty dollars. It's an investment. It's an investment. Yeah and then. They put the old hard sell but I manage to sneak out when they were about to serve snacks. So that ended my sales career right. They're selling all right. Everybody thanks allowed for listening. Please be careful of office romances. I understand you see somebody who is appealing. They kind of ring your bell but you gotta think long-term got to gotta gotTa think twice. You could be bunking up with the psycho you could or could be as simple as things go wrong and your boss says okay. One of you has to go. I can't have this in the office. So you know and could get laid off could happen or or just many awkward moments around the office. He's got to think long term All Right Buddy. Thank slept for listening. We'LL BE BACK OUT.

18 - Comparison, Gyms Re-Opening & Essential Oils

"You listening to the LA CPT podcast my unconventional musings of work down into bite size conversations degree contain the holistic living and self reclamation. I'm your host, Alan Mental Performance H and student to life. I'm here to remind you that life is a journey. Obstacles meant to be overcome, and I'm eager to share mine in here about euless. For you I'm. The woman wants needed and together we will explore exactly what it takes to deconstruct. Reinvent who we are, and what we know in order to feel on and become very vessels. Base is that moment my friend. Right here. Right now. Welcome. Hello beautiful humans, and welcome back to another episode of the holistic PT Podcast this episode number, eighteen and today we had diving into the rounds of comparison. Going deep with comparison and it's going to give you a really beautiful opportunity to look at comparison as a tool for garth and today also going to be speaking about how James reopening in some of the things that we can do about maintaining what we've learned in the time that we've had away from the gym. And to bring that back into a training. And also essential oils get asked about this all the time, so I'm just going to be giving you guys just a really brave and gentle summary of how I'm using essential oils, and how can get your hands on them to? If that is something you do? mindful Monday is something that I'm creating at the moment over on instagram. Every Monday I'm coming, live on to speak about what I'm choosing focusing for the week what I am doing a physical emotional, energetic and spiritual level the ways in which I'm taking radical responsibility and choosing a lineman. And it's a really beautiful open hotted, reminded to connect in and focus away from out distractions. Ryan really anchor into the week so multiple Monday. Every Monday on the ground at the holistic. Don't beatty is where you can learn about what I'm choosing what I'm focusing on and connect in and focus away from distractions. It's a really beautiful thing. ALL RIGHT GUYS! We're GONNA. Jump Straight in because there is so much to speak about today so comparison, right? Let's start there. Let's start with the beak juicy comparison because this is something that I get asked about. A Lot remembering that I. Earn a women's Gym and this is something that has been. I guess. I've spent almost a decade inside in an environment where I am healing this where healing this idea, these beliefs, the systems structures of these constitutions around comparison right sir. I feel like what we lack about. Comparison is that it creates lack and self doubt in the body riots self doubt in the Mind self-doubt in the body, and it creates a lack Just this idea that there is not enough or that there is. Something missing right, and as a result we criticize, and we shame, and we judge ourselves right so I feel like what we don't lackey back in Paris. In is that it creates it tends to create more judgment in shame right and this is a big part of why we WANNA. Learn about it. I think, and this is a big part of why that pot of you inside of you says I need to do something about this right. I really want to understand how to stop this or how to turn this into something. A little bit more positive will powerful. Right so my question to you! Is when you're comparing yourself, what exactly are you comparing? Rod I'm GonNa Throw some ideas out full you your body, and how it looks compared to someone else's body, right? Your Business and how new it is, or how small it is how you're structured your space, what it looks like what your content is. Right your relationships with your family. Your friends, your partner, your marriage or your lack of relationships. Right! Happiness right. How often do you can pay your current circumstance? You know the way you're feeling right now. In the moment to someone else happiness in a moment ran and you just feel like this so much missing for you or that. You wish that was available to you to. You compare your happiness. To other people's happiness. Things right what other people have caused houses books clothing may harms gyms right? This owners their businesses. Traits right the ability to come the ability to remain collected right the bill, the ability to feel all same lack. You're not crazy. Right traits. How often comparing the way you ought to the way someone else's will the way you behave the way someone else behaves, and you just wish or compare yourself in some way right that it might be different that you might be able to do that to. Skills, right skills another one especially for US business owners especially for US Open minded people who are always looking to. Grow evolve as human beings. Rod S skills right what we know and knowledge the way we use that knowledge how we use that knowledge how we retain on knowledge where we get our knowledge, right? Performance Strength Confidence Appearance of skin body shape. A hair nails soya toes, belly-buttons freckles at teeth. Eyebrows it's very very easy to compare so when you are comparing yourself. What exactly are you comparing? That is a really beautiful question. And I like to start he. Right it's very easy to compare and I think if it's so easy to compare, then that must mean. It's so hard to stop. Brian and that is the greatest lie. At the greatest lie is that it is easy to compare. It must be very hard to stop comparing in. That is the greatest lie, so let's break it down. Why do we compare? I think the best way to answer. This question is to not ask it at all right to not give it the kind of power to act as if knowing the answer will somehow phrase riot to not give it that kind of power that kind of power. As in asking how? Will often feel lack. We must know the answer before we can do anything right asking how will often come with an assumption that the answer is too complex or it's beyond? That which you can fix ride, or it's beyond what you're capable of achieving or something really hard and that you're not capable of learning right? And if you're anything like me that how it's exciting ride, it excites you breaking it down and reframing the question and adopting a new lens that is exciting right because the challenge represents another invitation to go deep into loosen the ropes around on next that blind US offering, and that is exciting because when we can loosen, those rips ran a next. We don't suffer as much right, and that's exciting at the invitation becomes. Looking at comparison in being with comparison in moving through comparison, instead of avoiding comparison, rejecting comparison and pushing away comparison and closing as a result of comparison, right. So I think I think it's wise to instead a lack comparison to coexist in your life with an open heart. Right and to not label it as a bad thing or even a good thing, right to not label it at all Or. Not I suppose not label it as a bad thing or as something that you want to get rid of right Oh make stop because he's only amplifies its power whenever we are trying to get rid of something away whenever we're trying to wish something away. It only gets louder because we don't want it to be there and we're very very good at noticing what we don't want and seeing when that thing shows up. We're very good at noticing what we don't want him with very very good at noticing when that thing is showing up, right. If we instead give wrestles mission to compare and stay wildly open. We can see the ways we compare for what they saw. which are -tunities and we can be with that by allowing an making a big deal out of it, and we can move through it because we're not pushing it away. Route went on pushing it away when not avoiding it and not making a big deal out of it rats. That's my blueprint right if we can instead give ourselves permission to compare and stay wildly open to allow out openness to coexist with comparison, right. Sir, remember, when you guys remember a minded latkes, always a mind discontent with what it has rat, a minden lack, Ken, not recognize abundance, because it has no reason to find it if if it's focus is on what is missing. Right now for me, I can pay my work rat. That is clear as day to me, right? I can pay my work, and I sometimes compare my gym to other gyms right. Because at Jim is sore unique, and it does things so differently by combining movement and performance with personal development and healing. Many people do this in their own ways, but to lesser degrees in the gyms and they do this through confidence and chats and impoundment and and Muslims daren't take clients into a deep meditative state, also retrievable visualization. To some days, it's proven very difficult to stand in what I have and what I have created without comparing that creation to others especially in the fitness industry, especially when I'm not seeing, be done in any other way riot when I'm not seeing my work in someone else's Jim Right. It's easy to compare in question with that is the right thing for me right? So I feel like I have claimed so much of myself in recent years, Sir comparison to other women's bodies in the calls in their houses and their babies and the money in their relationships. That energy to me is generally most laboratory and silent. It's more of an allowance not for them, but for me right for me to allow others to have the things right so I always speak about this allow was actually my word for tuning one last week, and it's simply allowing others to have their own human experience in making it about me right allowing others to fall apart to be messy to be crazy to be angry to have their feelings, and to have my own things as well right so. Allow is to part it's it's in its relative to cells in its relative to those around us ride today successes, there Wednesday growth their relationships, their houses, their bodies, and its own means to allow that its own to allow them to have that experience and you know if you're here. It's because it's probably because I would say you value in some way you. Probably value deconstructing yourself in order to leave more true and more fully and willfully expressed, and you recognize truth as freedom, you know being able to stand your heart with your values and believe in stay open in the face of challenges, Investi, and comparison right. So comparison should ever be the reason we stop out. Work at comparison is just another opportunity to direct your energy into the things you recognize as being. Will do not one. Right. Comparison is just another opportunity to direct your energy rat elsewhere into things that you do want Oh don't one or into the things that you're recognizing right. To compare for me is to witness artist. Its to witness designs its to witness. My needs its to witness the things I seek out or or Even daren't one right 'cause comparison can serve us. In that, it also shows us what we don't want and who? We don't want to be as well as what we do and what we do aspire to be right. and. comparison is the pot of you. That comes in and reminds you of the way that you cannot have that ob that or do or have those things right comparison is that part of you that comes in reminds of the ways that that it's not possible all the ways that that's not you or remind it's part of their reminds you of You know what you daren't have Right. It shows us a laugh that. We could have as well and this is important so. When we catch ourselves in comparison Let's use got some tools and only give you when we catch ourselves in comparison. Let these. Building a case. I really dialed these back to keep it simple because I always look at the myriad of ways, of things that can occur in play out so uniquely so differently others Very simple notions that can very very much support you without going like coach deep into it. Right so your first nation is to simply bring more awareness to the moment. Right, sir for some of us. Comparison is lack. It's like second nature, right? It's just super sneaky like we don't even realize we're doing it. until the realization becomes a feeling, right. And for others. It's clear as day right either way. Bringing your awareness to the moment, he's going to give you an immense gift case simply at Simp- simply that's. Simply notice how you respond a K.. What you? What do you do right when you catch yourself comparing yourself? What what are you doing? What do you do with that? What happens right? How do you respond? How do you react? How do you act in that moment? Again. I'm going to throw out some ideas. Full you. Do, you close your hot and shutdown. Right. Do you make permanent? Based on a temporary situation, so do you try and make really big changes in your life just out of nowhere? I do recognize that as a time to to start brooding your entire life in making those really Ba, drastic changes without a second thought. Right do go very quiet. Do Shrink. Do you withdraw yourself from your gifts from your work from your writing from Your Business from your relationships from your body at least silence your desires. And your needs do. Things, you're working towards suddenly. Just become silent. Do. You put a stop to them. Do they come to a halt? I'm sharing these because these are very common responses as a these are the ways that many of us respond to comparison route we turn. We turn off route. We completely turn off. We shutdown me close at hot. We make very permanent decisions about who we are about allies about what we have what we learn how going relationships and we make very damning. We make very like. Own Nothing. Suggestions and We do this. I think we do this because we're not taking a moment, right? We're not taking your moment's notice how it is responding right? So simply noticed response to comparison because. Noticing is apple mission to create change route without self-awareness, Lafley generally feel like it's happening to you, and we step into the archetype of the victim, and this plays out as if we have no control over what happens rattled that it's not our problem right and in theory. We aren't ever have any control over what happens, and we still have responsibility to ourselves now grace right. So three things. Firstly you WANNA witness rat. Be The witness to you. Comparison northern. How you're responding right? Catch yourself in the moment. That's the first step. Remember with outs of awareness. Laugh. Just it would just posse by right so this consciousness is bringing more self awareness to the moment. And the second thing is centering yourself right? Comparison is the minds work. You guys right? It's the minds work it compares. The body doesn't succumb back to your body, and you can do this simply by taking a few deep breaths at inhaling for five seconds exhaling FIF- seven seconds rat in do this. Do this breath until you feel like you can all simultaneously cultivate self compassion. Ride simply on the very human experience so human to compare. Of course we're going to compare look at the way. We live our lives at Sir Natural Right so fully allow your experience to be whatever it is in cultivates himself compassion right so those are just three very very simple things witness. Cultivate self compassion. Right, and this is truly the foundation of anything whenever we struggling whenever we attach challenged, or we're facing something really hot or just going through something. We don't understand our feelings, just really loud and big. These three steps the foundation you want to witness. You want nervous right unit. Catch yourself in the moment and you WanNa breathe. You want to send to yourself and you want to cultivate self compassion and allow fully allow that to be your experience, right? Without feeling like you need to do, something will change it right. Just allow I. Really consider the would allow means rat to not have to do something, but simply just allow right. Now if you'll reaction Herat if you'll, reaction is to go into a shame guilt spiral in other words. You've compared yourself and you just you just melt away. You know you do close off ego very small. You withdraw your love. You withhold from the people in your life. Right and you just shut down or You Daren't send out that mocking because you've compared yourself to another business whatever it is right. At so important that you transmute these emotions with friendliness and curiosity at self, acceptance and compassion. Simply ignored us the drama in love it like open to it. Pull your shoulders back. Lift your chest an open your heart right because if you reactionist to force change, shaping up, will completely change Your Business Brando make decisions. If! That's what if that's where we're going with this. If that's your response. Right, then it's more than likely not in alignment with your truth. Right, it's more knee, jerk reaction, ride, simply artist, and cultivate more self compassion as much as you need, it's it's limitless. Right you can cultivate is much self. Compassion is you need? As often as you need, right. Now I've remember comparison, just WanNa threes and remember comparison is just another opportunity to direct your energy into the things you recognize as being things you do, we'll do not want. Succumbing back to your body will support you because comparison is a product of the mind, rat comparison is the minds Axa coming back to the body always will support you. This will allow you to make more aligned decisions celebrity to come back to your truth, and what's important to you because remember what's important to you matters. It's very easy to look out and see what other people have. If we're not checking in with ourselves. If we're not even asking the question you know, do I even want this? Am I just seeing this as something? That's that looks good for right now. Is this really something I? See Myself having long term. Is this even achievable from easy something? Ya I even want. Had these really important questions to ask. so. Comparison can be such a powerful tool for personal growth, and it's always an opportunity to listen and drop in. So I've got some questions. We is that you can ask your journal. Begin to tap into your comparison with curiosity. The pretty much what I just mentioned, but I'll just break them down for you the Veselin. Is it really true that I? Don't have this or that I want this right? Is it really true that I don't have this? Any wearing my life. Is it really true then? I don't already have this. Is it true? That I want this. Do I have these things and I don't see that I have it because I'm directing my energy into. How should look rather than how it actually is? An honoring Matt Right. So is it really true that I don't have this? Is it really true that I want this right? Does this thing Alon with my values? And what is important to me? Right and in answering these questions, just trust that your answers will lead you to the exact place, the exact knowing exactly exact person Zach toss that you need to do or have. Follow will create if anything, it might be nothing. Just trust that your answers will lead you exactly what you need to go. Okay, so in summary. In summary when comparing simply witnesses, things you do want an allow them to be the things you want doing. Push them away. This is really important like if you actually asks you, burn us with yourself in. You're comparing yourself and you see something new. Lack Wahl like a really really won't listen. Then you move into that shame that judgment spiral, and that criticism way I don't have. That could never have this. Right! or She's just so lucky. Look at her guard those really seemingly insignificant things that we say to ourselves right simply witness that and do allow yourself to want those things K. allow them to come into fruition in their own way far K. allow yourself to have those things and create those things in your own way for you and your laugh, a really good example of dishes when it comes to the body right, we are renowned as women to compare what he's to other women's bodies. and. You're the so many so many ways that we do this and. It's to do that, right? It's okay to allow that to be your existence. It's okay for you to feel that way to have that those comparison coming. They're not bad. Don't push them away. Right if you are comparing your body, right, allow that comparison to coexist with compassion rat allow that to coexist for you K. and allow that to come into a few wish for wishing for you in its own way, so if you're looking to make changes around your body. Make those changes about you make those changes for you and your life and give yourself as much fucking permission as you need to to do that in your own way and to do that in a way that he's supportive in nourishing nurturing in an in alignment with you in your life. Okay, so when I say allow them to come into fruition in their way. These things you're comparing yourself with. DEUCE or in a way that is so unique to you. Rat allow that to be your journey. K., allow yourself to check in and check in with yourself and just go. K. One lines of me. What do I want? What is important to me? Is that really what I want? It doesn't matter what the answer is. What matters is that? You do whatever it is that you feel. You need to do in a way that he's for you. For you and your life, and your in its in alignment with your goals in your values. and. Then of course allow with inspiration, right and delight and possibility right, and do not entertain your inner critic with judgment and drama, and all the reasons why and how? You can't have that thing. Right you're awakening to a new way of looking at comparison, and and this way, my way is designed to challenge you in simultaneously free you okay, and it doesn't have to be a big deal. It doesn't have to be as hard as we've made it to be in the past like. We're used to it being hard with so used to hod so used to wanting something saying something. Being spied by something end making it a really be deal and making it really really hard. What if it easy? Right please remember my Elisa Uso unique in that no other person on the planet exists. Who is the same as you? Right there is no one else in the world that speaks like you. That has your voice. That creates the same way that has the same processes as you. That has the same imagination as you who writes the same as you. Who sees the world through your eyes in the way that you say it. Right, so your work is then coming back to your own unique gifts in your own unique gradients in your own questions and responding in line with your truth. That's it. By allowing by allowing comparison to coexist in your laugh with an open hot. It will amplifier ability to see new possibility, so give yourself as much permission as you need to compare and stay wildly open right? Give yourself as much mission as you need to see what it is that you long for and for that to be something you want without the drama. We got the judgment. Her lack, judgment and fee and shame and blame in rejection. US comparison as a way into your soul right into your soul. And what have you find? There has meant fee right. Just trust that whatever you find. There has been few. Case are moving on gyms are reopening. Yes, a really wanted to speak about this today because. I've had such a beautiful opportunity to reflect on the loss you months with the whole curve, nineteen situation and being away from us as a GMO, no being away from my jam, being away from my clients, being away from structure in training regimen and All these different things microphone ince's dwindled in in many different ways, and my body's become more desensitized to the training stimulus and learn many things that I want to I. Want to share with you before you go back to your training. And offer you in exchange as well sir! I've had like I said. I've had a really beautiful chance to reflect on these lawsuits around my own training in my body, and I would love to invite you to do the same. Just reflect on on the last few months and And what you learned route what you've learned about yourself what you learn about your training. What you learn about your body and it's needs and how it's feeling now. You know for a lot of people I. See this all the time. For a lot of people, it's you know it's going to the gym. Day flogging it out and for some people. This is really nice to some people. This is really healthy, and it works really well and but Kadoorie for those of us. You have your maybe a little bit of a nervous system imbalance, right? Way The body just wants to have a little bit more rest, right. This is not this is not ideal. This is not an ideal environment for your nervous system. Ryan Sir for me and what I've been teaching my team and my people is that you know. How can you bring more of what you've been learning into this new this new realm right in into this new reality into this space of coming back to the JIM okay because. I see this is what I see happening I. See people going Olen. You know and I love this and I love the idea of giving something. You're hot in your soul, and all of your energy and. Then what? Right and then what? This is where I land, so. I want you to understand that it doesn't have to be just nothing I k. all nothing is. It's kind of like it's just. It's just how I think we set ourselves up. You know it's like yes, like I, it's it's only perhaps you know it's one. We know sorry sometimes. Sometimes we go in, and sometimes it's nothing. This is a thing rat. Sometimes, it's all sometimes it's nothing. Wondering, how you can bring more of your sometimes all and sometimes nothing approach into your training right into the gym into your new programs into your performance. Into training reality. Into your environment. So that you can support yourself and. Then also a comeback to choosing the gym for the right reasons and listening to your body. Had, a really beautiful compensation with one of my coaches in the cost last week. and we were speaking about how we can use. The Gym is a more more of an empowering platform. Right so I think focusing more on apple. Performance Goals are at performance, and how what he's moving and how connected we ought to in how aware of our body we are. In relation to different movement patterns right, these are really fun, and really impairing goals to have because the more connected we to body, the more connected we are in general. Choosing the gym as go back like choosing the gym as a way to enhance the connection with yourself, enhance a connection with your body and. Enhance your performance or Vaa going to the gym as a way to change yourself and change your body right understand that there is nothing wrong with wanting to do this. There's nothing wrong with choosing aesthetics. Absolutely I choose this every day. You know I choose to lift weights. I love how my muscle feels and appears in my body. Right that is that is it just lasts me up? Say Reflection of my work, and I also choose performance I also choose. To expand my body, awareness I also choose to. Also choose to focus on the the white. Then I'm lifting, and how that feels right in the sensations in my body right so just now that you've got this really beautiful but unity before you go back. You've got this amazing opportunity to look at what it is that you actually want to create for yourself what it is. You might want to actually focus on all the goals that you might set for yourself. Just, choosing from a place of what would feel empowering and Not with the end in mind, right not with the end in mind not with. Specific going mind not with a specific end in mind, maybe a specific all, but not a specific end in mind so that this is something that you can, you can do for the long-term. Right perhaps, the gym is something that you've only ever used as. An owner nothing rat. It's just you go in all in heads, a blazing for like a week or two weeks or two months or six months, and then it's just nothing. I and then you go through these little periods of lack on again off again on again off again. What. What could you do differently knowing this well? Could you do differently now that you've got this really beautiful opportunity to go in with at the end in mind like that changes, everything that changes everything right so. My question for you is. What did you learn during your time away from your training? You know about your training about your body about your needs. About won't feel good. Right about the ease in slowest you may have been able to create like. What did you learn during this time? And then what's one thing? You're not willing to sacrifice moving forward? And how can you make room for that? And this is key? My love is absolutely key. How can you make room for that? Because that room will have to be made it will. That space will have to be created. In and I say what's one thing you not willing to sacrifice, because it will be sacrifice right? It will be a sacrifice Efe. You have to let it go. Okay, so, what's one thing? You're not willing to sacrifice moving forward. And how can you make room for that? Right. I know for us. We've made it so that we can continue to support nervous systems and recovery for a team in coaches and our clients, because not is not sexy, right, it serves no purpose other than to make the eager feels super, important and productive. We've made it so that atom can enjoy the training on the days that it is available and an almost take full stressed, forced downtime for recovery time. Bryant and really on that because that's what we've been able to do in this time, really able to honor the needs of our body, right? because. We've had no choice had nur choice. We can go to the gym. We couldn't burn sells out we couldn't. Work as hard as we normally would work, unless of course, you know you have a gym at home. You know what I mean, but you know. What did you learn in this time right? And what are you not willing to sacrifice moving forward? And how can you make room for it? Right Sir a few considerations that I think are important and I. Just WanNa bring bring to the light is. Because we've been away from training for. Proper, training heavy lifting stimulating the body. The body has become desensitized right when we're not consistently in the gym. Lifting weights stimulating the nervous system in the muscles right. It becomes desensitized to the training. Sorry I've got that wrong becomes very sensitive to the chaining rat. We become desensitized when we are consistently training in the gym over and over again. Okay so. Because we've had so much France in so much space in so much time away from the gym with actually become quite sensitive to the training right so sensitive to the training stimulus, and therefore we're going to get soul like muscles go soul, and we're going to need descent things. K. Than what we did before. We're going to need extra recovery along a recovery between sessions right moral food hydration sleep at epsom salt bath stretches. Are we going to need to respond a little differently to the way we would before, because now we are most sensitive rat more sensitive. Right it also means that. Your body is more likely to respond really really well to your training. And with all this time off near logically. And physically in your logically and physically Your body is body's molecular respon- really really well, right? The body is primed right now for some serious training. That can probably feel that as well so if you've had time off like you're more sensitive to your training, which means you're more likely to respond really really well to your training and. And My laws. That's why it's so important to take extra extra care of yourself or Picking up where you left off right so starting starting back in the gym it's it's going to look very different, right? It's going. It's not going to look you will when you left the gym, k. Sir Peeking out where you left off. Is not really a possibility unless you want to set yourself up for injury, right so? Starting from the beginning. I don't want, I don't. We got to think of this as a way of having to take a step back all to go back to step back to square one right? This is such a beautiful opportunity for us to go back to the foundations riot to movement patterns to controlling movements to stability to mobility to bringing more winds, drought body rat to to US strength to capabilities right so picking off Wei picking up. Up where you left off. is I. Suppose it's just a Noushin and it doesn't have to mean anything okay. It doesn't have to mean that your behind now. It doesn't have to mean that you're going backwards. It just means you get to start from scratch. You get to clean the slate. You get to open I. Get to get to do this thing you know with a lot of energy and a lot of intentional love inspiration, right? So. Those my considerations right so. Question what did you learn during your time away from your training about your training about your body about your needs about your recovery just about your mindset around your training. Like what did you learn during your time away from your training? And what are you not willing to sacrifice moving forward? And how can you make room for that and just know that that is? You're right like you can do that. You can do that. You can have that. You can choose that right. So let's rip out with essential oils. My lives I get about this all the time. Assad using terrorists and scholes in probably. Two, thousand and eighteen, maybe two thousand and nineteen hasn't been super long but my mom was always into aromatherapy and remember you know lavender and tea tree is staples in childhood Sir I've been around since I was a kid. actually joined. Using Tara at that point in my life, I was revisiting. Toxicity rattles revisiting toxicity in my life, and honestly it was just a full body. Yes, it made so much sense because essential oils offer just honestly just another alternative to so many things to. That would otherwise perhaps be toxic. And Reducing mysexy glory has always will be such a priority for me. in regards to how I feel and for my home insert mostly for my hormones, which dictate how I feel. Right Sir some of the ways I use them for my skin for cleaning mental health performance in recovery, is blue and peppermint, a really really powerful for recovery, an performance detoxification right my and I also use it as a perfume in body, moisturizer and different bits and pieces. my favorite things. My favorite things about essential oils is that. One with right literally I can crack open a bottle of essential oil. Take a sniff, and it just has the power to interrupt a patent right and to me that might look like a patent of rushing right, so it brings me back to the present moment and I feel honestly quite delighted. I feel delighted by that end. I get to reach the depth of my rushing right so I just bring consciousness back to it right. It really brings me back from a hassle at just one with office me I guess a reminder in the form of immense commission to destop right, and be still an inhale, and exhale and smile, and it's honestly just the seemingly little things, rather little sensations in pleasures that come with that come from smelling something really gorgeous and nontoxic, and it's also pleasure on its own to know that my inhale of the San has no negative impact on my body like that is magic to me. That is such pleasure, AH, like all and Olen its iron. Sir What else compliments from myself and others Sir I love the way oil smell in the hair, the skin and even off to literally off two hours of applying them someone from across the room can catch away like it's. It's a gift in so many forms as at. mortels the other day buying a brutes and I walked in the line, and we have to line up and wait and. The lady when it was finally my ten, The lady sat down with me and she's like smells so good I could smell you like the moment you walked in right, so it's a gift a gift for me and it's a gift so many others as well. Because what they're smelling is not toxic. What then smelling is not going to have any negative impact on neighbouring and I really? That feels really nice. And Probably Sleep Riot I love essentials for sleep, relaxation meditation, and honestly probably minted mental chatter support right so again like to supplying the ills to my skin, taking away defusing them. All of this supports my journey with myself. It's a value to me to sleep well right to balance my Nova system to relax and to soften and to let my body take over, and honestly essential oils. Really do this to me so I'm so in love with the journey. I'm so in love with the variety. So in love with how? Just the smell just this smell like if feeling, it's a sensation in the body, and it just takes you somewhere else and I. Really it's just so glorious. mytalk five is essential oils at the moment would probably be peppermint one thing I love about. Opens the Airways literally just by taking a like breathing in through. NYS, peppermint will just cle- your airways and. It allows oxygen uptake. Take Right, which allows for better performance. Oh peppermint, one of my top five. Levin? says calming, soothing, so beautiful, gentle an diffused this before bed I put this on my pillow. I, put on my palms and I. Sniff it in.

Just I breathe it in as falling asleep, so it's a relaxing and then Frankencense, which is honestly no surprise because Frankencense is the king of oils it just it's so beautiful for everything and anything when I first started, using Frankencense would go into my tongue.

Confuse me with the one and only Jim Zoki and I think we actually have some sports news. Don't we him not really but we'll do it. Why would we do that? We have sports E. News right kind of listen. Hey listen. Even the sports stations? Don't have sports news right now. That's a great point. That's great point but we do have We have like fringe sports news and Tom Brady as we've said before I think we had a Sports Confused Me Hall of fame. Tom Brady be one of the initial members inductees and we know he has signed a new two year contract with the Tampa. Bay buccaneers after twenty years six super bowl titles with the New England Patriots. So he's gotTa move right and so where better to live than in Derek jeters mansion that he is renting this English manor style home that Derek. Jeter the former Yankee great who is the current Miami marlins chief executive officer and part owner has a nicely alone to him at an estimate of something more than forty four thousand dollars per month to Tom Brady and Giselle and the two kids. Wow that's a lot to take in are any of JEETER's gift. Baskets used to give two girlfriends when they left the apartment in New Yorker they available for the children. We have and the idea you guys was at Derrick. Jeeter THAT BILL. A full-size functioning. Water Park in his Florida is Florida property. Wasn't that Derek jeter. That did that you know what it was. I remember seeing the aerial photograph of it. Yeah Lazy River Thread. Yeah yeah is called Saint Petersburg after him. He's got a lodge room for eight cars. It's got an elevator. You're only allowed by a local law to have a six foot fence. But they allow jeeter an eight foot fence for further privacy there This Davis Islands area of Tampa is a man made island built in the nineteen twenties. Where this home actually sets. Wow I it's. It's strange that he had home in Tampa you know. What was his connection to Tampa? You're not being zillionaire. Don't know a lot of bazillionaires live in Florida or Texas. Because of the taxes down there then he ends up essentially retiring there and taking a front office job in part ownership job with the Miami Marlins. Let's see if I remember. Now I might be getting my ex-boyfriends here confused but Derek. Jeter was in a relationship with Mariah Carey at the time. That this whole mansion waterpark. Thing went down wasn't he? Max? Yeah he was. Yeah and Alex. Rodriguez has a big Florida property too. I think so does tiger woods. Yeah because Florida's gorgeous. Well it's gorgeous and Jim was right there. There's no state tax right. Yes much reduced anyway and they say this particular mansion is the size of an average best. Buy Store just to give you a little idea of it and it doesn't. It doesn't matter whether you're a cheater or not in the end you end up with A. Yeah that's right. Wow is is that a joke that it's the size of a best. Buy Store now that is the actual square feet value. Didn't say the value of this but the valued on Zillow at almost six million more than the average house in the neighborhood. Wow forty four thousand a wow buying him. Bob's I thought was well. Good luck selling that Derek. Especially in these days. Yeah that's exactly right. Let's let's stay with the NFL. Let's talk about what's going to happen with the NFL draft the NFL draft is going to look a lot like your average bunch of guys from home. Doing their fantasy football drafts. It's GonNa be a virtual draft with GM's scouting department's coaches all in their own. Individual homes not collected together from their own homes conducting the draft or a little bit more than two weeks away from the first of the three days of the NFL draft. But Commissioner Roger Goodell putting out an email earlier week putting out the guidelines to all the teams and since only some teams have the ability to get into their facilities as far as safe-space seeing and and all that They decided everyone needs to have an even playing field so to speak us. Oh these these coaches in these. Gm's and everyone will be basically drafting from home. Which is going to be really complicated. When James WanNa make trades and move up and down draft picks and all that but that's the way it's going to go each each team Would only have one guy looking at what's going on rather than a group of coaches analyzing you'll have a group of the group will be in different homes even. Yeah with each other then. One person sends in the pick that they're ready to make the appropriate time. But it's going to be a little little different little complicated Sherry Asian. Jags another one of those instances where I feel really sorry for the players because these are college players and they've dreamed of being drafted into the NFL their whole life and they've grown up watching the NFL draft and you know all of the pomp and pageantry that goes with the NFL draft now and they're they're not going to have that and it is. It is a once in a lifetime. Thing right yeah it was supposed to be in Las Vegas this year to bet. It's a lot harder to get money in college under the table too. Wouldn't you say Jim? Crackdown that a little bit over the PAL. I see okay. Well let's let's stay with the NFL for another topic and talk about drew brees so we all know how big of a deal. Tony Romo has become an a short time as a network analyst. Who CPS working with Jim Nance so there are three networks Espn Fox and NBC. That are all already targeting. Drew brees the longtime New Orleans Saints quarterback as the next BIG DEAL. Now remember drew. Brees is still playing granted. He's forty one years old but brees is back playing with New Orleans. Whenever this does happen there's already reports that The offer of a drew brees would be somewhere around six and a half million dollars annually right now which is more than Romo May. When he started he had a three year. Ten million dollar deal to already offers of about six and a half million dollars To Drew brees for what will be his next career when he eventually decides playing football and the reason he's been offered that is because they've seen the commercials he's done in the past. He's good Ombu so he's he's comfortable on camera. He's a good looking guy and verbally got skills. I can say it. We're GONNA Continue Jim Right. You'll be back with us in a moment yup more just and we are back with Jim Zucchini and sports confused me with a pretty great story involving a UFC fighter. Jim You wouldn't think that if you're breaking into a home that you'd want to break into the home of a UFC fighter. But that is what happened to Luke Haberman arrested and charged with first degree criminal trespassing in Douglas County Nebraska. They don't know why he didn't steal anything but he breaks into the house in this neighborhood at four. Am OF UFC fighter. Anthony Smith WHO CONFRONTS HIM IN THE HOUSE? He's got his wife. He's got his three daughters. His mother-in-law there is wife wakes up. Says she hears voices and there was. There was a man in the house and turns out. They got into a fight and it was a pretty good flight from what it sounds like according to Smith. Ufc fighter. He says quote I'm by no means the baddest dude on the planet but he's a regular joe and I had a hard time dealing with them. It took everything I gave every punch every knee every elbow. He took every single one of them and kept fighting me then held the Guy Subdued for five minutes until the police finally arrived but he had a real. Ufc style fight in his own living room as it turned out. You know if you're the burglar what a nightmare choice bad choice of how to break into one of those guys who does it Semi professionally and he is a bad ass. I would not want to tangle with that guy while I'm if you're the burglar who broke into the UFC guy's house. Are you sitting in your jail cell kind of feel like maybe this was a sign that it's time to change your ways one. Would hope one would hope. That's what you reflecting on but I have the feeling the city does not look at it that way. He's going. Why is it me? Why is it so the masters is not going to be played in the most beautiful part of the year in Augusta Georgia this year? What's What's going to happen with the Masters Golf Tournament? You know something's been canceled. Some have been postponed for example the open championship. The British open has been canceled because if they delay it. They don't think the weather. The grass and so forth would be addressed for a major golf tournament for the Masters. It'll be held. In mid August August or mid November November twelfth through fifteenth. Are the target dates now for again? No one knows exactly when will come out of this whole Covet nineteen situation but the plan for now is the annual event that was to have been in April. Now we'll be Instead held in November it will compete in theory with the NFL for the first time for TV viewers. So that'd be an interesting scenario. Yeah you always think of it with the Zales out. You know springtime but that's your Augusta. That's a that's the first time in history that that's this has happened with the master's I believe so I've been told there's something called a comeback as daily. So maybe there's a chance they would re bloom again in November that's That's unconfirmed information. You know what else they might do for the first time. Admit a woman to their club. Slow slow steps low second crazy. Now where are you getting that crazy notion from? You know. There's somebody's going to correct me. I think they may have a woman. Maybe two who are members. They're like you're right. You're right Condoleeza Rice a member. I think you're right about you're right. Sherri YEAH NOT BELIEVE. I just pulled that out on my screen. Wow I I wish I could buy a lottery ticket. Offer lining in things. So here's my silver lining for the masters getting moved to November. It's not gonNA be humid right. No there you go see. There's something to be happy about. That's very true. I thought they would have done it in October. Because that's probably the second most beautiful mountain that part of the world but November's cool to. They shut that down by the way in the summer. You can't even if you're a member can play off their. Here's why I think November was the choice in a better choice because there is some Pretty solid I don't know what word to use thought or or reason to believe that we will have an upsurge of this. It'll the virus will die back a little bit. Then we'll have an upsurge again in the fall and maybe thought November was safer than October. Well plus October is The World Series. And it you know if they are playing they'd have to compete against that but who don't you still have the possibility some hurricane activity in October. Yes or not on the coast though. They're they're not Bob but those storms when they hit Florida and they come raging up through Georgia so maybe November to a safer band. Thanks for fighting a new tragedy. Throw in there like horrendous pleasure. I'm here for you. About Areas Gyms Gnocchi sports confuse me. Thank you Jim Cherry.

Keep takes the most annoying and laborious parts of running a small business and metaphorically. Metaphorically tosses them into the sun.

I Know Scott loves research as well, but you took research, and you combined it with facebook ads and I, my mind was blown. You were looking at things I've looked at for years and looking at it in a different way that gave me hope to go back and check things out so I'm so grateful that you wanted to join us today and wanted to chat about some of the secrets I'll call them secrets because they just were totally new way of looking at something, but I was so excited to.

Thank you do what an introduction, however on I'm super pumped to be here and thank you for such a lovely introduction crystal, and thank you for going to my session at Social Media Marketing. It was lots of fun. Lots and lots of was I'm hoping we can. Bring I'm bringing as much value today as what it sounds like I bought to you at Social Media Marketing Welcome. Excited Paul for for all of our listeners who weren't out partying at social, media marketing road, which is basically just a party. As we all know I looked at. It was a lot of lessons that land that that was inbetween drinking. That's right. Give them. Give them rundown of who you are, and what what you are about in the world. Fisher off a show. Hey, guys, my name's. Massive nerd for all things, digital marketing and tech and. Guess the not show version of what I do. Is Hope Small Business? Owners and entrepreneurs generate highly qualified leads and sales, using facebook ads and digital marketing funnels. Great, so I just want to dive right in because we have a lot to unpack in a short show here and I want to try to give them as much as they can, but one of the things I was. Most interested in is one how you use research further than I've ever looked at it in terms of the areas you're looking at how you expand that from what you can get on facebook natively and into just like Google search, and then specifically I'm the thing that keeps coming back to my mind was the example you gave about the music festival? So I'm wondering if you can share a little bit about both of those things. Yeah for sure for sure so. When it comes to research in. So many different types of research you can do in facebook and what I was speaking specifically about social media marketing was called Audience Research. So how do you mind your perfect audience avatar where they leaving on facebook? Where are they and how do you? Define that Avatar and then go out and use the tools that are available both inter facebook, and then extra facebook to mine that audience refine them, and then building audience Avatar building ads targeting in then run ads and test to see what resonates, and what doesn't resonate with your target audience so. I guess. Taking the top I think one of the most important things that you can do before you run any facebook ad especially to a code. Audience is working out. What that definition of that Avatar is? So, who is that person where they live? What do they do for fun? What aspirational values and attitudes they have that motivate them all. Scare them. When you're talking about the pot, the purchaser, what are the internal emotions in which your product or service solves or activates for your audience and? How does that relate to the Avatar? You're targeting and they don't talk about. A is actually one of the most difficult parts of facebook marketing, because it's great to have all these options of all these ways to find people, but what happens is if you work with team, you know you have your marketing team. Tell You well. This is the type of demographics that everyone has these are. The people were looking for, but not every demographic can be found in facebook targeting so that that what you're describing is one of the most complicated things, but I think the way you went about. It just really enlightened me and gave it a simple. approach really. For sure I think I mean demographic super super important. The age gender the location. All the basic kind of real top level attributes about your own avatar. Those demographic attributes are very important and when I sit down and I dot Naveta. For other product, centric or a customer centric business, which can get into more in a second. I dive date riot so that you've got the demographics, but then you also want to look at the socio graphics right so. Let's say you've got to definition of. Let's say. Give me give me A. Let's do a live workshop. Give me a business example. Give me some something to sell and who who I'm trying to sell to. Let's do Scott Should we go gym owner? What do you feeling today Scott? Yeah. Let's do it. Jim On. Gym owner. Jim Coup now. Caveat running. This is Jim that. postcode world when everything is back to normal. Because the Avatar an interesting it interestingly on that. The avatar and the challenges and aspirations along the path to purchase for the target audience of Gemina during what's happening right now with covid and depending on what they're selling is going to be very different to what they usually selling post Kobe Bryant, so let's. Right right so. Go So. They, let's say. Depends on what kind of Jim Jim they running right, so they could be running women's gym. They could be running a gym with multiple locations like a chain a gym chain. They could be running A. F- Forty five type Jim. They could be running a bought traditional bodybuilder. Jim and I'm going to speak toward. No, so be massive Jim back in the day. When I was when I was younger, I used to spend a lot of time the gym with. Bodybuilding champions and Dude dudes that I learned a lot often tens of training now. The Gym that I worked used to work out means to spend six seven days a week day. It was very much an old school. Watching Naggar like. Really like the real equipment. And it was part of. It's part of its by part of now in describing that you can kind of see that there is a specific Avatar for that Jim because you're sally. And Sally the twenty three year old. That wants to get H. Ready in time for some that may want to drop a few kilos or a few pounds depending on whereabouts what system you use to measure? She, she's not going to enjoy the VIBE and the ambiance and the atmosphere of a traditional bodybuilder Jim she might be looking for something completely different in terms of experience so automatically. We know that Sally is not going to be now. Target audience now, Talk Audience stereotypically speaking for this hypothetical. Bodybuilding building. Gym is going to be say men between the ages of and some women, but primarily men between the ages of eighteen and twenty five years old, or maybe eighteen and thirty five years old now. If there's only one location for that Jim, then that Jim is going to be in what's known as a customer centric business that's because it's a local business, and you'll find that most local businesses. Customer centric businesses so that, Jim. You're basically going to be targeting your target Avatar within a certain geographic radius around the location of that Jim Mel. Let's say that that Jim is also part of a chain. There's like a bunch of these China these bodybuilding gyms. So if that's the case, then be targeting the geographic location around each address of all the each individual location on the Jim Right now. Let's say that. Let's say that we want to find who that Avatar is on facebook beyond. The geographic location of the gym. and. Let's say the reason we're wanting to do that is because we also ceiling? Let's this gym is now also one that sells its own proprietary blends of protein and pre workouts and Thelma Jenex, so it's got a massive product line which goes digitally which extends beyond the physical service in which offers intensive lifting whites and getting shredded in the physical location, so we want to now generate ECOMMERCE I full that Jim. Without Taga. But now outside the audience isn't locally. scented is within the geographic entire geographic region in which we're operating, so let's say that that Jim is also a supplement store right and operates and sells locally within Australia cool now. What I've done is I've defined two examples of what a couple an example, a customer centric business is the customer centric business being the geographic location of that local gym, right? That's a customer centric business, because it's a local business, and then on top of that it's now product centric businesses well, because it has an ECOMMERCE aspect to it, which fails to our target audience, which lives all over Australia now. We go back to find that Avatar. Let's say with going back the same example. The avatar is the same as the people that go and lift weights the gym eighteen to thirty five year old men except now they're located Oliver Australia, so we need to go and find who is out perfect Avatar. That would be most likely. Most likely to respond positively to ads. We're running their feed to purchase a product. And the product in this in this situation is the ECOMMERCE aspect of the protein or the. Weightlifting supplement damage by whatever. You have to now start your information such and one of the best ways you can start. Information search for this is by using the audience insights tool. This is my favorite part. So. I'm just jumping all over the place. My mind is just. Active time. We also need to work out. In terms of defining that Avatar will work out the demographic profile like I touched on earlier. We need to work out the socio-graphic profile. Think socio-graphic profile, being things like what platforms and like platforms and channels to. Does this jacks? Twenty five year old, white lifted dude consume. What websites does he go on? Does he gone bodybuilding Dot Com? Does he go on six pack shortcuts stock almost six PACK SECRETS DOT Com. What what blogs content does, he can show them. What magazines as you can show them? What fitness idols and icons look up, he does he look up to someone like Arnold Schwarzenegger early follower an influence Puna. who were the people in the items in the influences in the thought ladies that this target audience member follows and consumes under regular basis right now on top of that kind of platforms and software they use a during their workouts or around fitness life. So today you strive up. They use my fitness. Pal. Track their calories and macro nutrients and micronutrients today use. Nike running club to using Apple Health Kit. Just really laterally about what platforms and tools and APPs this specific Avatar is using, and of course, this is going to be different for every single Avatar in which he built. Sir Paul earlier earlier you talked about. Trying to get to understand the attitude in sort of the internal emotions of your target, these what you've just gone through the socio socio-graphic. Factors are is this sort of the proxy us to understand the out the emotional attitudinal characteristics of the audience. So that's a that's a great question. So basically you've got your Demographics Ryan which we discussed earlier socio graphics examples, which just provided in and then in terms of what you're referring to it, which is the third layer of the cake? We've got the psychographic profile riots, so the psychographic profile bang okay. I'm a twenty five year old Dude I've started lifting weights and I'm I. WanNa look like Arnold Schwarzenegger right, but I don't look like Arnold Schwarzenegger so. What do I have to do in order for me to transform my physique to become the next Arnold Schwarzenegger over all become Jackson shredded so psychologically that would be an aspirational lever in which we can pull on with the now marketing creative marketing messaging, and also allows us to further. Refine the targeting that we're doing because we know that this subset about audience this Avatar specifically aspiration wants to get huge, which means if you want to transform physique to say you want to add. Twenty ten to fifteen kilos of muscle mass onto your physique and your size, seventy kilos and apologize museum, the metric system for everyone listening. That's space in America I know America's much different than a kilo that you're talking about. I'm watching too much ghosts. Bob's vives so. Yes. Akil in America, but then by definition would be a good way to lose weight if you know what I mean so basically. Basically. In order to transform your physique, and for that audience to transform the physique, and that's that's psychologically something aspiring to that gives you an insight into okay. What does asset this a? We're offering jim or what does acid that? We're offering throughout weightlifting supplements. That help. Out Audience. Achieve that goal, so you do say that would give you an idea for contents. You can give them you know. At Boston, ten supplements white gain is, you can give best ways to do it. A clean bulk will do dirty bulk. You could teach them about. Macro Nutrient tracking you could. Teach them about the best scientifically proven. Exercises for you to intensive lifting heavy versus volumes of Reps. That that kind of educational based top of the funnel content we could then stop running to that target audience that wants to add on that fifteen to twenty kilos, so they can become on. Watson Eager Greek dog looking. And worthy to you know what I mean. To I mean Paul when you're looking so for a lot of small business owners. You know they don't necessarily. They don't happen to audience insights. They don't necessarily get all the way around. So can you tell them some of the things you have been able to find in an audience insights research, and how you've taken that to expand your audience that you're targeting or narrow down depending on what you're attempting to do. Because there might be times, you would wanna do either of those gifts to show off shore, so it goes back to. Everything everything stems from the top, so if you're doing kind of a step-by-step look at all of this and I appreciate it I'm jumping all over the place. Step one is you really need to find you Abbas? You want to know your appetite better than you know yourself right Sir Avatar. You want to know the demographics given name as well so we've got SAM. Who's twenty five years old who? Lives in Perth Western Australia and he wants to become like Arnold, Schwarzenegger. And, so you graphically? Interests these attributes and platforms, the uses like my fitness, POW and Straw. And on top of that psychologically intensities. Profile of you know that he wants to become jacks right so that's our avatar now from Adverti- use that as the foundation for your interest targeting and you interest research. So what you WanNa do is take that Avatar, and then you want to say open up a google sheet or open up a word doc. And basically narrowed down any potential interests that this specific Avatar that you've. Defined for, Your Business might be interested in, and then you want to take that and you wanna go to audience insights, and then you want to start playing around with insights, so the first thing you want to do is put in the demographic information, so we announce we're looking for people in Australia between the ages of eighteen and thirty five by on the advocacy defined area, and then we want to go down and start adding interests, and those interests are gonNA. Come from out audience Avatar Worksheet, which we've basically worked out, so you might top in interested in my fitness pal and see if that works the that comes up as an interest few to target now. Let's just put that one interest in orients insights, my fitness pal, which is the APP that allows you to track you macronutrients and a bunch of other stuff. Excuse me and then on audience insights. You want to navigate so when you're looking at audience insights, you want to navigate basically in the middle of the page and. You'll find a section called. And you click on the page like tab and what that's going to do is going to show you. All of the pages related to the interest that you just put in my fitness pal, and it's also underneath that going to show you the affinity of other pages in which a suggested based on the interests that you are now searching for inside of audience insights. Let's say we've added in the demographics we add in say. At in my fitness pal cool another APP that this person might be interested in his. Strada and that comes up as an interest. Cool now. What that's going to do is is going to change the Finnigan it's GonNa Change. The suggestions of page likes in that TAB that we've just been inside the same tool inside of audience insights, and you're gonNA. Save you fidgety and affinity is a measure of how likely. The audience that you're building off the interest that you're targeting. How likely that audience is to respond positively? To your ads and your content that you run on facebook compared to everyone else on facebook right so it's a measure of as you add more interested in. It's a really good way. The affinity score is a really good way to work out. Okay, if Finley score is increasing. and. It's not dropping to not dropping to dramatically. Then! We know that we're kind of on the right track, because we wanna find audiences which have the highest level of affinity compared to other people on facebook from the interest that we're targeting. Is that make sense Two days ago I. Think we did our Webinar talking about life cycle marketing life cycle marketing is the proven framework that we created over a decade ago. That helps businesses to design the perfect customer journey that will lead them to consistent growth. And at the beginning under the system of collecting leads, which is one of the first three systems, we have this concept of targeting, and the reason is because you know we recognize how clear it is for you as a business owner to understand. I I like the way that you said it Paul. You've got to understand your ideal target customer even better than yourself. Is that really possible? I guess we don't really look at ourselves we. Look at you. Want you want you want basically yet I want to know them better than me so I want to know them better than you best friend or your partner, your mom and the reason that I say that is because one of the biggest mistakes that I say. When people sit down to targeting specifically audience research, an Avatar targeting is that they mistakenly assume that they the target audience, and sometimes. That's correct like you. You could be your target audience, but I'm probably that one percent of the time that you are literally the person that you're selling to, and even in that one percent you still not your target audience, because you have a cognitive bias against what you're selling because you'll remember about what are these rights on your romantic about your business, so you really need a psychologically disconnected emotionally disconnect yourself from the targeting and the research process and think. I'm not talking to myself. I need to talk to the people that I'm selling to. Yes, and you have to constantly remind yourself that and. So! We talked what we talk about is the need for people to climb inside the head of their prospects and so listeners as you're listening to Paul's talking about. He's giving fantastic concrete examples for ways that you can basically use facebook where you can think facebook is sort of this. Menu I. Don't we make this political at all, but you whether you like it or not? FACEBOOK is in the heads of a lot of people, because they're able to watch the behaviors of a lot of people right and so what we're talking about here is the ability you have to go in and use the audience insights tool to learn things about your audience that you may, that may not otherwise be obvious, and so I just think it's. It's super powerful because the value of this is you number one? It's going to impact the way that you might be able to leverage to like facebook to find more people like that, but even more than that it's going to allow you to adapt the message and the conversation to really meet the needs of those people and against those needs are not completely evident, and so you know the the concept of going in and adding these characteristics. And then understanding from facebook that look a lot of people that have that characteristic also have these pays legs, and not only that you can say now with your affinity score. You are understanding what the likelihood is that person actually responding? I, it's just it's unheard of that. You can have that amount of work to sitting there at your computer, so to me and I'll tell you who knows me better than myself is facebook so I mean. If you know your Avatar, you can get to the people you're trying to sell to or trying to serve if you're using facebook and the tools they have Correctly I mean I just think being able to go into audience insights, everyone first of all all small businesses out. There should be looking at audience insights. It's something. Just to understand a little bit better, but what I really enjoyed about your presentation Paul was seen about how you take that and use it to really. Like that affinity score thing is taken a next step, and then being able to translate that to your Ad. Targeting is really next level, but if you're not even in you know audience inside skit in there. It's important to understand who's are ready. If you already have some kind of audience on your facebook page, who's already engaging with you? WHO's already liking your page? Let's for those I'm assuming there are some people aren't listening to don't have a clue. What audiences insights really is so let's start with the very best pretend. I know absolutely nothing. and so what? What is audience in this is some paid tool I have to use. How do we get access to? It is really something I could go leverage to hire someone to do that. Let's start with the basics. For sure so great news fan tightly love. Back into facebook, so let's go soup elementary how to access the audience insights tool. You want to go into facebook at facebook ads, manager, right, and then in the top left hand corner of facebook AD manager. You're going to click on the little draw in the top left hand corner, and then that draws going to drop down, and then you're gonna see a bunch of columns. Columns and in those columns. You'RE GONNA. See Audience Insights, and you just want to click on audience insights, or might depending which version of facebook using it might be called audience research, and if you can't find it just simply most things, you're a simple google search away out of wife on the audience inside Facebook, and then you're GonNa Click on that, and then it's once you. Click on that, and then you're going to be able to start doing all the stuff that we was talking about earlier before the break great and then to kind of just get back caught up to speed with what you've been talking about the first thing we're going to do is we're gonNA take our own. experiential learnings let us know. We know that our audiences have these types of interest, and we're going to go start plugging those into to find out if the things that we know, our customers have interest in to find out if those are actually something that's registered on the facebook network basically right? Correct so I not everything not everything I have interest in is necessarily something that's targetable on Facebook, right? That's the. Words words. On my math, and that's something really really important to know so just because they don't know everything that I don't know everything. And just because back in the day like Pre Cambridge A. Little Fun fact for run prepaid Cambridge Scandal. You could do so much more. To saw my Gosh aalst. It was well. I'll tell you what it was. It was the wild west, scary intensive data, but as a marketer me that let's use it because I can I can I can do some stuff with this now you can still do really powerful stuff with the daughter at your disposal is just it's just as easy and a great great point that all back on. Is. Interests that you can target. Audience Insights and through asset targeting lays of facebook. Daren't equal page just because you can target. Site Jim just the broad category interest of Jim inside of audience insights and add set manager. Doesn't mean that that is targeting the page on facebook called Jim Ryan so let's say that you really great way to spot test. This is literally. Using a really broad broad K. would like Jim. Way Typing Jim into into basically normal facebook and we see the facebook page for Jim Show Up. On, a page top speaking now let's say hypothetically. Jim paid shows up and there's six million people that like this page right so you're a cool so. Jim has six million people like that page, but then you're go to audience insights and you type in gym and it has. Ten or twelve million people that interested Jim now the reason that disconnect. Between the interest that you're targeting or researching and the actual page like is because page likes darn equal interest, the way in which case books back in categorizes interests is is not the same in which categorizes page likes so that's something really important to keep in mind, because if you're targeting Jim, and you think you'll targeting the facebook page related to Jim, it most the time. It's not the same, so that's something really important to keep in mind. But you are facebook is basic because of their evaluation of the way people interact. They're saying we'RE GONNA. Put you in a target. People who are most likely to be interested in Jim Right so that that is correct. And and then it comes down to what was saying before about sufficing working out and optimizing your family school, because if you put an interest in into your targeting, which is Jim. And you might think that it's a great great interest to target for example. Let's say that we using the same examples before we put in my fitness pal and we've put in Strada as to the interest. I think that's what I said before that. Example, and then the finish school that say is that is. That site is Sydney five thousand people in this audience at this point. And then he put in gym and the Finley School, before for the top of the the the top suggestions page, Alexei, sitting at three, hundred, sixty three, and then put in Jim and the audience size grows from seventy, five, thousand to say. Ten million and seventy five thousand, and then you say the affinity school for the suggestions of the top pages now dropped prayer and sixty three down to say fifty two and what you've been done. Yeah, you've added in beautiful way larger audience, but the likelihood of this audience now responding positively to. What you're going to be sending to them, compared to other people on facebook because he finally scores dropped is a lot. Lois a lot less likely to. Respond to the creative and respond to the ADS that you're running, because you've made it so much broader. Somebody. WHO's going to go advertise on facebook they could. They could start by just going into an ad and adding a bunch of targeting criteria. This tool, and basically, if you do it that way, you're having to buy just investing the money. You're basically having to spend your money to figure out if that was a good approach. Doings basically saving you money from having to spend that. You're doing some preliminary research that gives you some indication about whether people are likely and Paul. How does how does facebook I realize this is part of their algorithm, but? Are they using some historical Activity in your own facebook account to dictate whether there's an affinity with you. What's the? What's the general concept there? Yes that's a great question. And so I'm going to speak to my understanding, and with just with every advice, and this is a blanket rule and I. Say this all the time just because. I'm I've got lots of experience and I do well with facebook. Ads doesn't mean that what I'm saying is Gospel. I always recommended run tests and rights, and then a lot of stuff intensive, as it relates to the algorithm side of things. A lot of it. Kind of kept hush hush understanding by some what I've read and from in research testing is that? The way which facebook calculates Finley score is based off a plethora of data points right? It's based off your interaction history. How often you're logging in! The cumulative number of pages that you've locked in with inside apparent category of around barely cal category of. What you've liked already and interestingly enough, if you curious as to why you're seeing the certain ads targeted to use if you want to flip the script and say okay, I'm saying all these ads rock in my newsfeed. Why am I saying? These ads broke up in my knees fade so for example for my knees fade personally I say ads for software platforms like a Gore pulse I see ads for. Social Media Examiner I. See ads related to facebook. INSTAGRAM marketing. I see ads related to building six-figure businesses online now I, know why I'm seeing those ads because I know what I interact with them facebook pages. I like but what you can now do. Is Go into your personal side of facebook. You can go into your into the settings and remember exactly where it lies, but there's an area in your personal settings. Yeah, this is an area in your postal saying it. Yep and you can see all of the pages in which you've liked and all the pages. Over, the history of Your your facebook and then keep in mind that on top of that it's also going to be based on the instagram pages that you follow the instagram accounts and interact with so. facebook takes all that data all those interactions all that use a history all those data points across facebook and Instagram, and they put you into these different silos of categories. And then that's where you fall into those the umbrellas in which categorizes you for example, I like a bunch of pages led to the fitness on facebook. Therefore are have expressed interest in pages related to the gym. Therefore, I'm in that Jim Interest in category of say thirty million people. One time right after a break up. I was on facebook and I got this ad for what to how to deal with the break-up or something like that and the social media marketer and he was like dying to know why they targeted right. I mean I'm still convinced. They have the Mike. Turned on and are using that, but whatever that's what? He's what they might have done is. Little, fun example you can do so many love this stuff so much. You can soar many cool things with not only interest, targeting but behavioral targeting, and then you can lighten negate super nerdy. You can lie all of this together. Right love it. Let's say that I am I working for an online ECOMMERCE company that sells diamonds specifically diamond rings now. Everyone facebook shares so many aspects about their lives now to the point where facebook knows how long you've been in a relationship for facebook knows if you're engaged. Facebook knows that your fuel recently engaged. Facebook knows that you've you're about to get married. facebook know if just become divorced right? Facebook knows if you've just gone from being in a relationship to single. Why do they know that? Because through your personal profile attributes? You're telling facebook. What's going on in your life? Right so you change? Let's say you're in a relationship. Taking your example and Crystal relationship and you had. You're in a relationship on facebook, and then you changed your relationship status to single. What does that tell facebook or at that tells facebook that you're no longer in a relationship? So then intensive interest in interest, targeting behavioral targeting that you can do at the asset level. You can talk people that are recently single. I. Believe you can do that, but I definitely know that you can talk to people that have been relationship recently engaged more relationship X. amount of years so if I'm working for this fictional. Diamond Company and I want to run ADS. To promote these diamonds. Then I'm going to be targeting people that have been relationship xmatch years, and I'm going to split test that against people been justin relationship versus people who've been relationship for. A few, years. That against people that have just gotten engaged, and then I'm GONNA run. ASPIRATIONAL based content around these beautiful rings, and I'm a split test that to both men and women. Because you think okay well, the target audience realistically speaking hypothetically should really be. Men because men are the ones that are typically going to bind done ring. However, you also want to be targeting the women and you wanted to be split testing the women because the women are the ones that will be like. Hey, but I just saw this really so cute. Cute. Cute and then like the again the. Medical, but you see around Goma with this and then the boy, the man's like all like does the really cute? Like which one do you like more, interesting And then, and then he and then he goes continues. Yes, exactly and then do the split test of the actual scenario in two different voices. That's probably. So far! Fishe Learning easy for everyone. Sit in the man. The man goes onto that same website, which is so. There's two parts. There's to entry points for this funnel at at this point in time, right? You've got the split test of the man and the woman. And then you've got the woman telling the man that. Hey, this is a really cute wing. I think you should have a look at it. And the man's like is the one that she wants to make Ma make my wife to be happy. Let's go, and then he goes, so he might he might. Might, not being caught by the targeting that we did for men. He's been communicated real with the with the bay. So then he goes on all of you out there exactly, and then he goes onto the website that specific website dime website that I'm now in hypothetically working for, and then we facebook pixel them right, we face the man, and then we can run. Re targeting as to them at the bottom of the funnel, so we basically just sidesteps the. The interest targeting for that man because we see the woman that's then recommended that he check out that ring, and then he loves her, so he's like I'm going. Go do some shopping. If we'RE GONNA. Fold this and all the rest of it, and then we pixel them, and then we can re target them based on. Website interactions and website activity if you set up your facebook pixel correctly for up to one hundred and eighty days. Okay so mind blown out there for everyone, but what Paul did, you might WanNa. Play it on slow or on read. gave. You a lot of free dating advice here. He took you all the way from research to pixels and how to retarget so I just want to say that is a lot, and there's a reason experts like yourself have a very hefty client base because it is something that if you don't have you know all day everyday to nerd out about social media that you may WanNa. Look at hiring someone for however what I will say is before you do that. I always think the best approach is to test things out yourself. So for Small Businesses Paul. What would you say if they haven't really dabbled in it yet? And they know now the time for their business. How would you tell them to get started with facebook ads or take away for kind of that first initial test? One hundred percent so many things to say all stop by addressing the timing nature of this episode in what's going on in the world. Face has a supply issue and a supply issue in two ways, one is supply issue in terms of facebook has a limited amount of resources. Known as placements in which it can run ADS on any given point in time so placements pain things like instagram stories instagram feed in stream video ads right side news feed ads in Mobile Dad's etc, etc.. And they've also got supply problem in terms of eyeballs so. At any given point in time, there is a limited amount, so there's a cat's amount of eyeballs that can consume ad content on that limited amount of supply of real estate, in which you can run ads now when you think about, and this is basic economic supply-demand. About half, facebook, ads and AKASA facebook ads work. It's an auction riot, so at any given point in time you going up against other advertisers to get in front of your audience for to get in front of your audience. For the ADS that you're running now, the price of the auction intensive, who's winds intensive whose ads placed are variable of the supply, the eyeballs and placements available as well as the demand riot now demand keeps supply base up into this point in time supply. And supply eyeball supply placements has been limited, and it's basically like decreasing as supply decreases, the cost goes up and demand has also been increasing as demand increases basic economics. Price also goes up because you've got more people competing to get in front of your audience unlimited supply now what's happening at the moment? which is the first time that's happened in like gays like especially since the IPO back in twenty eleven twenty twelve. What's happening now is everyone is at harm because of what's going on, and everyone is now socializing in spending way Mohtarma social media than what they were just compared to a month ago. So now we have more of a high supply of eyeballs, which is now increasing the supply of. abbots of people that we can advertise to which stare which. hypothetically statistically would mean all things Sarah Paradis all things being equal main that supplies increase which leads to a decrease in price now. Obviously, this is by lot more. At face because of what's happening, but it also has been met by a decrease in demand because a lot of advertisers cutting back on how much they're spending on ads because saving money because they were very frugal, it's very tough economically globally at the moment, so as a cold action I've just explained to you how an auction on facebook works now if you keep that in mind. I believe that right now. It's one of the best times for you to get on board with facebook especially, if you've never tried it before because the ads. And, most likely going to be cheaper than what they would usually be can even compared to say a month ago because they've got so many more eyeballs to get in front of now if you'll start out for the first time, I recommend using the steps that we've discussed already intends to building a code audience targeting I also recommend playing around with Bray targeting and targeting your warmest audiences first because. If you also if you haven't set up the face with picks on your website, it's stole the picture new website yesterday like it needs to be done I can't stress that enough it's. Simple and the new tools face. What make it so simple and this? Free Youtube videos literally step by step. Show you how to install it and depending what platform you're using, it could be as simple as creating the Pixel facebook takes two clicks, and then copying a pixel and pasting it into the Pixel section of your a platform supply. It's like shop apply. It's like three to four. Click five minute in-store process. It's easy as Pie. No coding no development needed. And then in terms of starting out, start out with the amount of money that you would spend on a coffee every day. Five dollars spent five dollars targeting code audience in a Cold Ordinance campaign and five dollars a day targeting. Which based off your re targeting audiences, and that could be re targeting people to visit. Your website could re targeting your email list could be re targeting people of engaged with your instagram or facebook profile, and then run creative and run ads variable to the audience that you're speaking to so customize your creative and the language and the copy and the offer, and whether you actually trying to sell something or whether you're just trying to provide. Provide Valley customized that to the audience that you speaking to because the way that you speak to a code audience is going to be different to the way you speak to someone that's already brand away. A warm audience already knows who you are, whereas the Code Ordinance needs to learn about who you are. You Trust you knew bill report with them before we can actually get into. Take out their wallet and by by for me. Oh my Gosh I could talk to you all day long. Politics producers are already telling us. We blew through all of our time. I can't even believe that well. I shouldn't say blue because that was a lot. It was like a Walker sized addition here. Yeah so awesome when I think. You know I think there may be some people out there that don't have a lot of experience and I think I'm glad that you ended with you know there's there is a small way to start a lot of anxiety about facebook I. can I tried this and I haven't so I love that we gave. Tools that allow people to go out and research in a way that that can maybe. Set up the likelihood of success even more. And also create insights about our audience and I love that we gave him simple ways to start and super helpful stuff. I think you know finding more customers is something that I think almost every single business wants to do, and there's obviously a lot of energy. San Facebook so Paul can you say where everyone can find you if they WANNA? Look up more or get some more information absolutely. Absolutely crystal my handle is poll Raimondo on everything. So that's P. A. U. L.. R. A. M. A.. N. D. O. The best way to reach out to me by instagram dropped me. Follow semi a message. If you have any questions, I literally reply to every single message that get, and yet from there you cannot. It's basically Polar Mondo and everything dot com poor wanted instagram, youtube, facebook, etcetera, etcetera. Oh my gosh well. Thank you so much. That's actually guys for everyone out there. That's how I got a hold of him so. Responding to my Diem and For All of your time today. So invaluable for everyone listening like I said You taught this old dogs, some new tricks so I appreciate it and man. We're going to have to have you on here again. The absolutely love so he loves to do that. Thank you, thank you so much Chris Oh and thank you so much, Scott. Thank you so much, everyone everyone, listen. Yeah, you bet all right.

Ben Golliver on Life Inside the NBA's Bubble, First Impressions at Disney, His Hotel-Room Quarantine and More (Ep. 226)

"Welcome to hoop site podcast. My name is Alex Kennedy. This is episode number two hundred and twenty six. We post episodes twice a week, so be sure to check back joining me. Today's a national NBA writer who does a great job covering the NBA for the Washington? Post he writes to post up newsletter any host, the open floor, podcast, and greatest all talk. My guest is the Great Bengal over Ben Thanks for joining me how you by pleasure Alex has always. How're you doing? I'm actually doing fine amid. Mendes MBA core team bubble I been here since Sunday. I haven't left my room. Barely talk to anyone get all. My meals dropped off at my front porch. I get tested for the virus every afternoon. So that's what I've got going on. How are you doing? I'm doing better than that. I've had contact with the outside world. I'm doing okay. I'm so curious about this bubble and you know I know you've been quarantined. Even tweeting about it. It's been really fun to watch in kind of follow along as you've been sharing your experience there. How much longer do you have in quarantine in your hotel room. So I checked in on Sunday. They gave me a green bracelet. bracelet says you know if you're walking around Disney, the security sees you. You're in big trouble. They're going to bring you back to your room in and start your clock over to like what happened to Rashad homes. When he went for the post, Made said you know he wasn't supposed to. To do that so to get the green bracelet off, I have to pass seven corona virus tasks one per day for a whole week, so I've got an past four tests so far I've gotta get three more done a once. That's under my belt. I'll go, and that will sort of release me to the wider campus and I can see one of the players, hotel. Casino Tower where the Lakers and the clippers in the boxer stand like I could see out my window. I just can't go and walk over to that then hopefully by next week I'll be able to you know. Start seeing some practices scrimmages some games and all that good stuff. Yes, so once out of quarantine. You're allowed to go to games practices in the media hotel. I think maybe some fans think that the media are in the same hotel as the players but How is the Media Hotel and after you out there where you able to go as far as the campus? So I think it's important to keep in mind. This kind of feels like a college campus during like summer session or intercession where it's big, it's sprawling. It's open. It's all right. There's fences everywhere preventing from going from point A. to Point B., but there's not as many people as they're normally are so You know they told us. Of course. Try to keep your distance from the players. They really WANNA keep the players as protected as possible, but I imagine I'm GonNa, be walking around these courtyards, and you know seeing guys walking by ICM. You know down out my window. Know walking by almost every afternoon. So it's not like some sort of a you know a prison type environment. It's not like there's barriers everywhere. It's still a very open feel and you know Disneyworld. has this gigantic sprawling place and you know the practice courts aren't very far from the Meteo Hotel the hotel is smaller than the players wants to. It's nice. She's kind of your typical Set up my room. Room I've got two beds. I've got hot water a got. A toilet got a nice flat screen TV. It's just sort of your typical vacation room. It kind of feels like a family four. Come down here you know, do the do the whole to where they in a real light this but it's very empty because you know. Of course, they've got hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands of rooms down here. And really you know. The the NBA's bubble is just a fraction of the capacity that they have. How long are you planning to stay I? Know some reporters. We're going to stay for the entire duration. Finish the postseason. Some others were going to leave at some point and have someone else from their outlet Com tag team in. How long are you planning to stay? Well Alex I got the confirmation email last week. It said you have been confirmed for ninety four nights day, so I'm here for the entire time all the way to the end of the NBA finals and they actually did a follow up email. They said actually Disney's processing system is not set to take reservations that long, so they had to break it up into thirty date chunks, because normally know whatever company Disney world for more than a month so prior prior to this experience You know we're kind of putting their entire system to the test here. Because nobody's crazy enough to do it for three months, but I guess I've in that category now. This sounds like every kid's dream. Nightmare because you're Disney for ninety plus days, but you can't go to the parks. You can't do anything like that. So. It sounds fun, but I know it's a lot of work, and you're actually able to enjoy yourself. It's not a vacation as you were kind of getting ready to come down to Florida. Obviously I'm here in Florida. I'm about an hour and a half out from Orlando, so I've been seeing the cases increasing and just how scary it is here, and how few people take it seriously seemingly as far as covid nineteen, so as you were kind of preparing to come down to Orlando and get ready to cover the NBA's a season where you concerned as you saw the number of cases rising. Oh of course, absolutely I mean. We heard Adam silver. Say A lot. You know it's going to be safer inside the bubble that outside the bubble and for me. I really questioned that because I had been very careful. Living at home in Los Angeles. I was barely going outside. I was getting all my food delivered to me. I was just going for a walk around. My neighborhood would always staying socially distance I. Really wasn't doing much of of anything. No non essential trips I mean nothing like that, not not going to the grocery store, not going to the pharmacy, and so for me. The idea of getting on a plane flying across country into a major hotspot was was very intimidating. I put up pictures of myself on the flight, but you know I was wearing one of those face shields I had a mask I had rubber gloves on I. Mean I was trying to be as careful as possible. Say once you get on the campus, though and this could just be a false sense of security, but it's so big, and there's not that many people here that it does feel pretty safe. You know you're just like you feel like you're disconnected from the outside world. It almost feels like its own city. or its own You know it's only like locale. Although his and I think part of the security, feeling comes from just testing that we're doing I mean very few people in the world have access to daily Corona virus testing, and like very careful health monitoring every single morning I out checklist. If I have any symptoms after give them my temperature have to give them a pulse reading. I get tested every afternoon I. Get the results back on a website in the morning. This is a real privilege for everybody in the bubble to have this level of medical care is just not normal for American society, and so I think from that standpoint that that helps you. Just feel like okay. You are in a safe place Certainly there's places in Florida where if you wanted to get tested. You're not going to be able to get a result as fast, and you may have a hard time getting the test so I certainly feel very fortunate for that I know. It requires some sacrifice medical privacy. Sign a lot of things away. I had to be willing to give to these readings to to be able to come down here and and participate. But for me, it was worth it just for the peace of mind. Yeah, that's a great point. I had a relative that got tested recently, and it was a five to eight day way I want to say it took eight days. Some people taken five, so yeah, I mean the fact that you're getting tested every day. If you have a single symptom, you know your are in good hands and. And you'RE GONNA. Catch a really early. That's a great point. well, l think about that I mean if if you're relative weight and five days for test results sort of like what's happened with these baseball players to a May, you could go, and in contact with hundreds of people aren't horse five days right and you can affect all them if you were in the bubble, let's say the NBA test took five days to return. That's three games your plan. That's two practices. You're going through right. That's a couple of media sessions you're dealing with. So. That's that's what would be a huge risk factor, and that's why the testing part is so important, the daily texting and the quick turnaround of results because Let's say somebody did test positive at this point. They would know that so quickly that there's just a lot fewer context that they would come in into While being here at Disneyworld, so you're not having a situation where some guys playing three games and he's he's sick, but doesn't know it and again that goes back to the the piece of my factor. It's nice to know as these players who are sacrificing their health to be down here. Right I mean there's no question that if they were just staying at home in their mansions, they'd be safer than they would be. trying to play Games indoors full contact sport, but for them to be able to at least be in good hands I think that's really really important. For sure for you though I mean media, members are sacrificing something, too I when I talk to different media members as kind of leading up to this and talking about the restart I talked to a number of different guys on the podcast here and we were discussing. You know whether or not we'd be down there, and you know kind of the pros and cons, and would you know? Do you want to be away from your family for that long and things like that? So, what was that decision like for you deciding whether or not to go down there? Well. My step was just talked a lot of medical experts, so I talked to my main doctor. I talked to my cardiologist. I talked to a psychiatrist I talked to. Doctors within the NBA team doctors that I also talked to doctors outside the NBA for more. Unbiased approach and some medical experts, who I had interviewed for stories I kind of hit them up and said what do you think about this? And basically everybody gave the plan a thumbs up once they saw the health protocols They thought it was good and my own personal doctors say you know you're you're ready to go, so that gave me a real. Sense of satisfaction at knowledge that I wasn't walk into some kind of trap. Right so that was number one. I would also say though like as a reporter you, WanNa. Be where the action and is a guy who loves basketball and Alex Bounty I've been I'm going to summer league every year for two weeks right like there's a gym I want to be in it. This idea that you know Lebron Zion hearted and Yawn Israel going to be down. You know playing games like I wanNA, be there. I want to sit there and you start. Start to hear about the setup and it's like you're going to have a seat ten feet from the court, right? You're going to be able to hear everything. They're saying these empty gyms. It's almost like a basketball hearts dream scenario so funny because you're mentioned at dreams and nightmares earlier I mean for me. I never cared about dizzy stuff at all I barely bend any of the Disney properties. I could tell you any of. Of the Disney characters any movies any of that stuff, so when I first heard it was Disney World I was like Oh man, I hate crowds hate amusement parks like this is going to be a drag then. I really started to think about it. I was like who cares. This is just like summer. League said we're going to be in Florida instead of Nevada and we're GONNA have way better players to watch every single night. Night so from that standpoint. It really wasn't that complicated decision. It was mostly just like pedal, waiting anxiously to find out that I'd been approved making sure that I got the health the health clearance and then get myself down here in a statement. Yeah, that's a great way of looking at it. I, saw Mark Stein wrote in his newsletter about how he had some injuries. Id for flying about flying for the first time you know. Someone like. Traveled so much throughout his career throughout his life, he was really worried about taking that first flight. You mentioned you know you obviously took a lot of precautions. But what was that like going to an airport and flying right now? It was definitely weird. no question about it I. Mean I fly a lot as well just over the course of the season, and I had not gone onto an airplane or gone. To an airport since March and I remember my last trip in March, it was already getting weird. We start to look like a ghost town. There was fewer people on the flights. Everybody was looking over their shoulder CNN, who's coughing sneezing kind of thing, and so I was I was braced for some weirdness You know I actually did stuff that I. Don't normally do I signed up for a first class. Upgrade on my seat so I'd have. Have more room I actually got a car service from the airport to the hotel so I. Don't have to worry about an uber or taxi I just kind of figured like look. It would be stupid to compromise a a three months trip if I didn't take every precaution trying to get down here so I consider myself really low Guy Alex like I don't need fancy stuff at all, but on this trip I was like look. What's the best? Best Way could possibly do it. Safety I'M GONNA. Try to take every precaution like that and then being on the plane. You know this is a small thing, but like Rachel Nichols happened to be all. My Flight Mark Medina from the today. It'd be all by flag. Kyle Goon from the OC registered happened to be on my flight, so it did kind of all feel like we're going to summer camp together. Learn, we're on the same bus to. To summer camp and that helped a little bit, too. Just because you know, you know you're not by yourself, and so it was nice to kind of like you know. Take a picture racial heffer! Take a picture. You and just kind of have that old thing where a we're in this together prefer. So, what have you been doing to pass the time in your room? Why the naked these ridiculous twitter videos! Which I'm sure you've seen. I'm I'm trying to keep people. Know lighthearted so I. I've been first of all. I'm a big walker trying to get into shape so I've been walking before. I got to Florida. I was walking like eight miles a day so I've been trying to make sure I, at least get some of my miles in just kind of pacing back and forth in my room. Because again I, I? Literally can't leave the front door so that that's number. One number two is just trying to come up with creative social content that lets people know. This is a weird social experiment right down here in Florida. It's Kinda scary. The whole thing could get popped at any moment if there's a significant spread of the virus. But at the same time it's a lot of people who love the sport who are coming together kind of for the love of the game as Lebron said over the weekend and I keep myself in that category. I'm just someone who wants to see basketball succeed You know it's not like I'm rooting for the NBA to make a bunch of money. I just WanNa see sport. And being played, so that fans can enjoy it so from that standpoint know some of this stuff. I'm doing like social media. Trying to come up with creative thing is just to keep people engaged in. It have conversations about basketball because I've missed it I don't know about you, but the last four months now we're talking about all different plans. And NBA got meetings and conference calls, and all that stuff. That's so boring compared to this idea like Lebron versus yawn astray, or can't Colli, take the clippers, the promised land. Land or is this going to be the your heart and gets what like those are the stuff that we all love to talk about? And so to be able to kind of get back in that direction has been really nice. Absolutely I know Rachel Nichols brought a puzzle with her a huge puzzle. Some people have brought video games. Some players did. Did you bring anything that would help you? Pass the time obviously laptop and I know you've been posting the videos, but is there anything that you have the kind of? Keep from going crazy. The main thing is just my ipad and my phone. You know I I got a bunch of books and movies and TV shows all the IPAD, so I used that to kind of wind down. Alex. I'm a big. Lego Guy I we talked about that before. So at some point once I figured out the delivery situation where I could make sure. I can get packages here. I'm probably going to get some lego shift and just use that as a way to kind of distress but so far I'm still stuck in this Corinthian. So I can't do it. Yeah, because I know they were saying that. You move from the quarantine room to a whole new hotel room after seven days are upright. That's correct. I think that's just pretty much a standard safety, Kinda, procedure or protocol, so we're not far as far as understanding I think. The rooms are supposed to be very similar. But it's mostly just like you know once once we clear out of a bit could use something else, but. By, it's it's kind of a hassle because I completely unpack and I brought a lot of stuff. I'm here for three months so. You re packing and unpacking. It's going to be hassled. How's the food? There's been a lot of talk about it. Some players have been posting pictures and videos. Some players have said it's good and you know I know some people have said to that once. You're out of the quarantine. Then it gets better, and you can order from a menu and all this different stuff, but so far from your experience. How's the Food Ben? Will, it's funny. The food is fine I have no complaints with it but I'm a vegetarian, so the first two nights that was here. They hadn't switched me over to the vegetarian meal, so they would bring me like a piece of steak or a piece of beef and chicken breast, and then some green beans, and so my dinner wound up for the first night was like six green beans. All I could eat so that was a little bit rough, and I'm also trying not to eat the junk food. They bring a lot of like potato chip bags and desert that I'm trying to stay away from so it's. It's a little bit about picking and choosing but I think. Ultimately. I'm not down here for the food right and so you know as long as I've got enough calories to Kinda. Keep going I think the whole rest of it will just of shake out, especially once out of quarantine, but the interesting part about the quarantine food. A lot of it is prepackaged because they don't want a lot of handling of the food to potentially get sick. So they've they've taken even precautions at how they bring you the food with people who will step back from your door after they leave it at the door, so you're not getting too close to them. A lot of the staffers are wearing gloves and masks again. If they're bringing your food, they don't WanNa, somehow contaminate you in any way with the germ, so the whole thing is a very rigorous. And logically created process to try to keep us safe and keep us in a full lockdown of. Let's talk about some of those safety precautions I know. Many people are wondering how safe the bubble is whether the season will resume without any issues You know there was talk about how it's not really a bubble. It's more of a campus because some of the Disney employees are coming and going, and they're not getting tested, so there's some concern there, but from what you've seen. How is the protocol and do you feel like it's? It's pretty safe. I feel safe here. Now could be a faucet security, but I think the the size of the campus helps, and I think the level of the medical attention that I mentioned earlier with all the things that they're tracking, and the regularity of the testing has definitely helped. Put my mind at ease. I'm feeling very confident that they're going to be able to get. The season started worldly two weeks away. They've already been practicing. If you look at the testing numbers more than forty people, players tested positive in June and July before we got. Got Down here to me. That's a huge number that's like more than ten percent of the players like that's kind of scary number, but if you look only at who tested positive here in Orlando once they got to the quarantine, it was only two people and the NBA said they caught both of them before they were actually able to practice or go out into the campus right so that means the bubble so far has held right there. There's no player positive that we know of walking around in practicing and potentially exposing his teammates. To this point, so that's a very promising start for the NBA standpoint, and we hope that whole it's I guess the one thing. I always keeping the back of my mind. A lot can happen in three months right now we've seen. How much does virus can change? From March April May June depending on where you are the country depending on how your state response to things, and so are they going to be able to make it all the way to the finish line crowned a champion I. Sure Hope so, but that's where you start to just wonder. Are they going to be able to keep this thing under control for as long as they need to? This may be a dumb question, but I have to ask it. Is there a media snitch line for her reporting anonymous things. I have access to the SNITCH line and it was in my material. I think there's just one snitch line so I think. It's the same one that the players are reported to I'll tell you by my nature. I don't necessarily view myself as like an informant, but I will say this. I mean if there was something egregious like if they were backing up a truck and there was like twenty four people who clearly were not part of this bubble on a trucker on a bus. I would I would think twice because it only takes one person you know this. This entire project is relying upon whoever the weakest link is right, so if you're going to get your post mates, if you're trying to go off campus and comeback, it puts everybody at risk for sure and so I wouldn't demean or blame anyone for trying to kind of report or acknowledge possible violations, but even though it's kind of against my nature I've never been one to call the cops on my neighbors for annoys, complain or go to the IRA say Oh, the Guy Across the hall is too loud. He's too drunk. That's never been who I am. But I do think it's important to remember. These are life and death. Stakes ride. I, mean people die from this thing every single day and the entire plan requires. Strict a rules and regulations, and frankly I'm glad the NBA is being strict about it early on because I think if you do punish guy like Rishaad homes, it says a message to every single other player out. Here is like look. It's not worth it. You don't to be stuck in a hotel room for ten days. Just 'cause. He wanted to get a you know a Burrito or whatever it might be a follow. The rules in your life's going to be a lot better for sure. Yeah, and like you said I mean you're not sending someone to jail. It's not like you snitching like we tend to think of it. It's you know throwing something out there, saying hey, this guy. Has Tested or he left the campus and came back. You're probably keeping people safe and keeping the plan together, because otherwise it's going to fall apart, and we're going to see a bunch of cases spread, and it's going to be just a bad thing, so yeah I think it's been It's been interesting to watch some of the reaction to the quote. UNQUOTE SNITCH line, but I do. Alex weather on that point. I should have mentioned. There's also a lot of money at stake. Right like if you're a shot homes and you walk off you do that. You might go big deal I. Just go hide in my hotel room for ten days, and the whole thing is over will imagine if there was spread because if something like that all these players who came down here expecting to make. Make collectively hundreds of millions of dollars in their paychecks, playing the the regular season and play in the playoffs. That would all be put at risk because they wouldn't be able to necessarily have those games, so those mistakes could be very very expensive right and it could lead to a situation. Where like you're filler. Players are like dude. You just cost me millions of dollars. What were you thinking? Again that that peer pressure aspect could help you know with with people complying with the rules. I could see that as this plays out. Yeah, it's a great point. One thing that I've heard and it's been kinda interesting We've heard that this could be a social experiment. There's also been talk about the NBA trying to make sure that players and everyone in the bubble has. Has Access to a mental health resources. If they need them because I mean when you're in one place for four days, you're staying there and you're really limited from the outside world I. Know The family members can't come. Stay with the players until I believe the second round of the playoffs so I mean you're away from your family and the outside world for a long time. Are you concerned about? The mental health aspect of it at all and some things that you're doing to try to make sure you know from the mental health side. You're doing okay. Well for sure the exercise that I mentioned. I make sure I do that every single day to the most important thing for my happiness for me, feeling like unbalanced I think the other thing is just staying in contact with my family members. Making sure I'm calling them on a regular basis that always helps to. I actually find doing podcasts. It's kind of therapeutic, too right I mean. Not like. You're my shrink Alex Right, but just even having this conversation is more. Back and forth and I might get in a typical day. alternately wants to gain start. I. Think I'm going to be so locked in on the basketball that not even really that worried you know. I think it's going to get easier as we go along not harder because when you've covered the playoffs. Does anything beat the playoffs? You know you get into that second round that third round our talking about conference finals head to head showdowns. The excitement of the NBA finals is going to be different this year because we're not all thousands of media members descending on one city, but. It's the NBA finals. No matter where you put it so I I'm just kind of hanging on until the game. Start and I think it's GonNa be smooth, smooth sailing from there for sure. Yeah, if you didn't love basketball, this would be really hard, but I feel like someone like you. That just loves basketball and can't wait to see the players. Get back on the court again and just loves the sport. You'll have an easier time dealing with it you. Can you imagine if you're someone that was just sitting here and don't cover this and you hate basketball. It would be rough man. Yeah, that's the thing like you know. I the people I feel like the TV production right? If you're a camera person, or let's say you're behind the scenes, and maybe you don't even necessarily care about basketball. You're just like really good technically at your job, so they're like all right. We're sending you down here. It's a big assignment. That's where it would get rough especially if you have family in, you have kids I mean I. I would feel for people like that. No question but I think a lot of the people that are down here. Love the game and like I just the excitement factor in talking to other media members. When I checked in I kind of feel it now. Yes, there are some grumbling of you. Don't have to be away from my wife's. Some people said or get to see my kids for six weeks and that's really tough. But I do think that there's a curiosity factor, and also there's like foam right if you weren't here. and. This is your job you. We all build our whole schedule around the NBA calendar like nodding here. I think you would really kind of start to get got an adoption, and so from that standpoint like when I was trying to weigh myself do I? WanNa go or not like kind of the risk of. Actually sounded not as bad as like the foam of I, didn't go. That makes sense. Yeah, that does make sense We've been hearing about this bubble and the NBA plan for a while. Now as you mentioned, we've been talking about it and the protocols and what is going GonNa. Look like now that you're actually there. Is there anything that surprised you or you know things that you didn't expect? Well. I just had no idea what to expect from like the Disney campus. 'cause you can look at the maps. All you want but I've only been here once before when I was a kid I. Remember nothing about it as so getting here and starting to see what the hotels look like, or you're driving in, and you just see life. Thousands of empty parking spots right? Just, the whole thing is like. Wow, this place is huge. It just kind of gives you that. Wow! Factor now is not necessarily like the most luxurious hotels and I can understand why. Some of the players are Kinda like well? We're used to saying that like the four seasons. This is not a four seasons you know. So I get that from their perspective. But for me. That was the biggest kind of unknown like they were talking about playing this whole thing in Las Vegas and in that situation I already know the gyms from summer. League which hotel I would stay at. I know my favorite restaurants like the whole thing kind of seemed like pretty easy to manage here. I do feel like I'm a study abroad. Students like all right well, I'm going to have to. Learn the campus map and figuring out where all the gyms are Wendy. The bus show up to take us to the to the Games and all that kind of stuff is going to be very different the other piece it would be just the media access because you know it's not like your typical shoot around and practice access is limited in different ways ill. We're GONNA. How post game press conferences that we're going to be able to attend after these games, but still there's going to be sort of a physical divide. It's not like we're going into the locker room to talk. Talk to guys, so that's GonNa be another real adjustment period. It might change. Kind of questions were able to ask you know it might just be different, and certainly having the Games an empty Jim will change the law. Because how many times do we say like we ask a player? What was it like with? The crowd went crazy in the third quarter. Because of that big big run. You guys went on like your. Walk us through that dunk. You had that poster dog when the crowd went nuts like there's no crowd to go nuts. It's just an empty. Jim Right so. Some of those questions that wind up getting players are going to have to be framed differently for sure I'm very curious to see what it looks like neutral site, and how that impacts the encore product, but that'll be interesting to last question for you. Then I'll let you go. What kind of content and we look forward to you producing from the bubble? Do you have any ideas or any stories that you can let us know about ahead of time? While, you're trying to steal my story. I! Don't want to give away too much. I would say I wrote an essay about like the whole process of coming to the bubble and living in the bubble. It went up on the Washington Post on Thursday. I just encourage everybody to read that it I. don't write a lot of first person, but it's a little bit more personal than what I would usually. Usually do we're going to try to get some behind the scene stories? Just the kind of people who helped make this thing possible for sure there's going to be a Lotta basketball stories. You Know Lebron's chasing championship collide Janas chasing. Championships I mean those are stories that I'm definitely going to be digging into now. Also hosting podcast got like behind the scenes podcast. I do the open floor. podcasts with sports illustrated analysis have one called greatest of all talk and people could check that out at greatest of all talk, Dot Com, and basically that's just giving you the nitty gritty details, so if you're a big die, hard basketball fan, you want to know exactly what it's like down here.

A lot of the gross only fans gauges now so guy like see them. You could chat to right. Yeah you could just like instagram account. We gotta be 'em and basic is getting houses off of the money. Money is the money is really good. You didn't do anything you can do. Makeup tutorials no one's doing make up in and around with Zayed but there are people on there who are fitness models. Who are making money. You would see on me agreeing with here. Yeah that was. The question was certain women are only fans. Would that bother? You would they? And they can diem and do. All of that stuff is the grandma. Is it a fucking days kind of like? Hey for paid see them concert and oh so right money coming hog is probably look but will you talk with them. To the girl into pitchers you could sit in the papacy this. I'm going to GYP club. Though with him right in Spending Mono I love wanted district club with them out. I Love the Strip club like we go and usually even Atlanta winnick when they cut when our commanded Kanda girls. Kind of no. I'm very job I got I chew. Smoke Woodham drink. Would we tip? And he'd be gone his own thing. I don't like they usually come in. They have like a you know as a stick with women. I had to tell like very like David thing that old strip club you know Nigga. I'm like listen. Girls district of a very respectable honestly like when? I go here. They don't Him I think are the Strip club in customer. It might be a new girl. Might be like listen like this on his face like his wife and she. You don't understand like I never had no problem like there's been times on the Strip club and he'd be all of a sudden talking to grandma from pitch migrelief. Where're you going like? But yeah I I. I don't have no problem with it. So what is crossing the line like? What is taking it too? Far Mister Clever you like all right. Chill lap dances anyway so he usually get more jealous when grabbed on meeting. Water navy. Yes Oh he'd be kind of like like one day was when I was done and has one grocery was like unbelievable chart girl come on about all. You've got to fuck you. Not Best Way would have wanted. Them was started giving him a massage across the club. Don't we do that? We'll be doing that we have. They have massage girls industry club so maybe making money for the massage day ahead of time or walk in a he's massage. I'm like we'll be. There's I don't know medium-sized is so crazy. Because I think people got this stigma you know. People don't really know you like they. They have this like when we date merchant camp in the end of the marriage. Camp Date. They edit this whole fake tomatoes night. I was made Girls Club we really arguing. Security had a remember that not only at all my friends. Call Me Bitch I noticed. Fake is fault. Because you don't need I don't give like we don't care like that's one thing I'm not like I'm not like that like I'm I'm like I am I.

She kinda hinted that wanting to do it before you. He's not getting out not yet. Share inevitably baroness so selfish. Because Joe fine your whole career had re-mortgage did you had your whole flash and I've been at home being good old wife sold into studio every day now. How is that like working with your husband to go? He usually along with a ministerial. He only compared to fuck me but Usually I don't like when I'm going to give me my face. Is He'll coming in. Sometimes I can. Phones ain't done Tom. He was going on like But usually he gave me my own. Space is only when it comes to the business side where he usually get in like. Get into everything. You're taking a personnel when he's telling you things because that's your husband at the same time sometimes. I do Nickel you rap Nigga. That's like that's different anything but I'll get into it because I'm like it's not the same thing because you go up there and hit your additives in you to wrap you wrap saying you have to. You know what I'm saying stack vocals. You have to do all this. Extra ships is not the same. So we get into it a lot when it comes to that or sometimes mijas He thanking everyday. And I you know number. Leo's I do everything. Wait let's get back to the DREASM. How would you ban if he came with the woman and was like? Hey Remember. You've been talking about three times. Maybe we should use higher. Would you feel a little different if that was the situation like that? I don't think I don't think I'll be down with that but Gingrich over on why maybe picking the wrong women. Maybe he doesn't Baby that's not enough. I think he's more so like what does vary boxing gym. And so he's very. He's very eligible ten people in one. Why he's very much like she don't want like when it comes to me and my daughter is like he gets jealous. I is crazy because all my friends they know him so well so like they come in and they all What you did my baby. Lucky he'd like ugly and I might use it for hater as you ain't shit like I know that now I did watch barker behavior because he is just who he is like. You don't WanNA share is he. Don't want to do anything that I wish. Now that you got all Nutty I might let me ask you this. You talked about walk. His Lips right and obviously some amazing oral sex. Jesse ever do that and just have sex with you. It's okay to all of the car and go to sleep that all the time and I just got turn out you know. He does way more than I do. Good I argued reciprocated. And with the Hickson baby run as much as eagle eventually. Get better at that because he always want to do it in a warning and unlike nick I just woke up breath rocking on and when it is played why challenges men. They wake up with the dual four. We did do it in no. But if I'm not in the morning when our relationship we have set mostly in the morning mostly you that you liked it. I mean it is movies that you when know why you my friend like that. She's She don't like she was. She enjoys economic social. Our understanding. Have SEX DITCH WORK. I don't mind agile right over the channel because there's a lot of energy when they try to make you do it too long and you'd be like you just shit like one day. March. I had a really bad. They came from the document. Full tooth out ahead galls devilish going to stay on. Would others foul work out? He's been aware winning boobs and I was sitting on the bed. He was still like. Would you just stay still? Damn I wanNA talk about when y'all went to psychiatrists therapists or whatever and Walker said that he feels like when the whole cheating incident happened. It made you. He made you better made you mean and you actually look offended by that hose anyway. Shin Did y'all come to understanding about what he was trying to say. I think a lot of times. And it's so crazy. 'cause I watch the food to my blog posts Comments like. Oh He's a narcissist. He's this he's back. At that time I will pay him. No fucking attention no seriously I would dismantle two years so I noticed nigger in and out and I know that I know what he's saying he's trying to say and how it's like you say oh Blocking can't check catch thrown. He said either. It comes to his mouth so sometimes. I could go back in defense and defend him. Not Because I'm trying to Oh take off my head because I know what he means and I know that s coming off. Yeah he made while he just say stupid Jim Right so they understand it but when he says the publicly by. It's just like you know you have a friend. You know your friends just like mom. That's my best friend. So you know your friend and you like the people that which I'm Mike her because she kind of booze I usually when you get to know her she actually coors light. That's like walk a Wacko. Stay stuff that people take offence to so to be on the history in your whole nother bitch. So he lion like him and it's not just the cheating his His inconsistencies his all the shit that we went through. Duar relationship throughout our marriage that most people go through but we just went through publicly. I could never be the same dish. I wasn't mayhem. Because when I met him I was kind of green. I was I was street. Smart and to mess away. St Nicholas Shit like that. But I know Mr Nick an industry. I was twenty three twenty four years old when I met Walker. I came very gullible very. Oh yeah you know that the grass is green and everything is great and peaches all these bitches on my friends. Friends do get upset and I had to learn the hard way like okay. Take this motherfucker. Can't trust this because she's you know eight to be trusted you. He ain't doing what the fuck you say he you know he ain't who he say he is. Even though he showed me one side he was.

Okay I wanNA marry you because I don't WanNa lose you that though the reason was that the right reason to marry somebody. I think it was kind of a selfish reason but for him. That was the only way that he knew how to hold onto something without. It'd be it. Took him away everything? He loved his boss losses. Problems his best friend. Eli You know what I'm saying. So he's been in the streets he but he was on all kinds of shape. I P front end up switching up so not making excuses. Why Advocate Accountability? So him to all that shit that I went to him. If I've been through fucking ringer will you come on that? But you can hold it was gonNA survive after that back. You know what I'm saying. Not Do I wish I didn't have to go all of that stuff I of course no one wants to go through all that heartache and headache and all that shit but do I. I look at as a blessing in disguise. Because it's a musical. Do all that shit for me to be who I am today. Now he no shit. He pulled back then he could never ever Clayton but for now now play. No game was during that time to you. I remember to hook me up with EMI L. Everything it was crazy but it's like it took me even all of this shit like I think it also showed him to lie.

Please help me. In welcoming this ridiculously accomplished father of four an author of the incredible book get out of your own way a skeptics guide to growth and fulfilment Dave Hollis Paul Command big. Thank you for having me Dude. Thank you for being here. You were one of my favorite humans. I'm super excited to have you in that chair. I think this is going to be a lot of fun. You are one of my favorite humans. I am so grateful for the invite and I am excited to chat about all the things. Let's do it man. Let's start with being a skeptic. I actually find it kind of cool and interesting that you came to personal development and growth sort of drug kicking and screaming. So walk me through. Why do you call yourself? A skeptic. Do remain skeptical. What what's journey been like? Yeah I mean I. Interestingly I grew up inside of a faith community that put some taboo around listening to teachers that if not holding a Bible could sometimes be seen as sacrilegious and so from the very very earliest formative years. There was a little bit of careful who you listen to so that is where it started. I've I think tended to be a little more of a practical pragmatic person. Just generally and so- skepticism runs a little bit as an undercurrent of my wiring in a way that with a bit more of a fixed mindset had me not really even considering that someone reaching for growth or development didn't in some way indict them for being broken or less in the first place and so there were plenty tools that existed. That could have helped me all through my journey and yet because of a little bit of how. I was raised in faith a little bit of how I was raised. And ask you a little bit of. How just the world informed me thinking? That self was in some way for broken people. I was skeptical and it honestly. It took my wife walking into a journey for me to first incredulous and then see some of what was working for her to have me ask a better set of questions. So how did you navigate that going from you know this? This is for broken people thinking. This actually is kind of cool. I had to get superstock. I wish it was like a better answer than I had to get superstock but I found myself in this strange bridge between thirty and forty where for the first time in my adult life. Things at work were going so well that it was actually working against me. I'll come back to it but I am not really being as challenges. I had been previously found myself at this threshold birthday. Asking why had been afforded certain gifts but wasn't in a position to have to fully use them and one day. I'm out back with my kids attending a ritual of ask that anything. I got three boys and now a daughter and they usually were asking ridiculous things looking for ridiculous answers and just committed hail answer any question. Whatever IT IS AND MY MIDDLE SON ASKS. What are you most afraid of and out of my mouth. He's looking for Scorpions tarantulas. And out of my mouth falls not living up to my potential right like this idea that I've been afforded gifts but at the end of my life could look back with regret and in an interesting way as I was in this station of stock. It's started of want to not be stuck so when you say that you're stuck. This is the period where you're feeling like the job is too easy that you're not really being pushed as we mean by stock. Yeah so I came into this last job of my seventeen years at Disney which was the head of sales for the studio. I'm putting these movies in. When I first got the job. Disney had just acquired pixar. So now it's Disney and Pixar but two years later marvel studios comes into the mix two years after that here comes Lucasfilm. And now the responsibility I have though it comes with the trappings of the title and the Access and the academy in anything else selling avengers and Star Wars to movie theaters. It turns out wasn't necessarily the hardest thing because of the quality of the team that was surrounding me the strength of the intellectual property and so I'm getting straight a grades but I'm not studying for a single test and that dissonance is creating in me this man in my truly fully utilizing the skills and tools that have been afforded me and what it provoked. Actually I mean like I wish I could say like oh I can cast a vision of some positive thing in my future and use it for leverage but I am. I'm dark I have to go to this place where I was imagining here. I'm just turning forty my sixtieth birthday party. So now. Here's the sixty th birthday dinner. My adult children our sitting around the table and they've been asked to raise a glass and represents to me and everyone who's assembled what their proudest of and at that time I could see. There was one of two ways that dinner could go that I could either have a dinner where they were raising glass. Truly proud for me having pushed myself into spaces of discomfort intentionally so that I might grow or dinner where some of them didn't show or if they did they didn't have anything to say and the idea that I could in the next twenty years. Let my kids down became this. Who cares what you think about personal development? You better go figure out how to get yourself out of this whole because if you don't you know how dinner ends up. Do you only person I've ever heard. Talk about negative visualization. I'm actually glad that you called the book a skeptics guide to growth and fulfilment because I actually think it's interesting that you still do retain you're obviously wholeheartedly into growth and development but you you retain a I critical eye to some of the tools and techniques that I respond very well to and I talked to people about like there's power in the darkness and I think there actually is power in the negative and sometimes looking at the beautiful things that you WanNa do sitting in gratitude. Bear really powerful tools. But they're not the only tools. Have you used negative visualization in other ways like? Is that still something that you? Oh Yeah I mean there's a forty five minute montage at my funeral like it's long and it's one of two movies and I can stay connected to people not caring about the forty five minutes to play because of me having wasted the rest of my life because I am not just. Don't have this like my wife happens to have a furnace motivation burning inside of her every day. And I I don't relate to it I can't connect to it and so when I wake up in the morning and I don't want to do it. I have to stay connected to wanting to have the movie. Play the right thing. I had this opportunity to take a few days to just get clear and it was right around the new year and I went back and thought of every time in the last two years five years that I was at a low point I wanted to try and find the common denominator of what it was that low point so that I could every time it may be started the present itself. Keep it from happening. And I found that there was unbelievable consistency in each of my low points. And that is I have either proclaimed to myself my family my employees or the world that I was a certain thing and then I showed up as something that was disconnected from that thing and the dissonance between who I said I was and who I knew myself to be in the privacy of my own head. As my head hit the pillow that distance was pain? Was Shame was unfulfilled potential. Regret and so I am on a mission to close that gap like every day. My alarm goes off. It is an if then statement right. If you say that you want to be this thing if you learn legitimate in your claim that this is who you are now then you better get your ass out of bed. Get shoes on and get out in that garage. Jim Right like I'm right now. Getting Ready to head out on the road for this tour to support this book in Man. I'm excited for it. But I've done the if then equation if I want to have the energy that has fully president pouring into the audience. Then I gotta get my health right. I gotta get my mind right. I gotta get my spirituality. My health all of the hell hole. It's it's if I if I didn't write because I'm good enough to actually convince them of whatever it is that I want to sell them but I know right and the distance between them believing that I am actually who I say. I am and me knowing that I am that. That's pain is and by the way that's also where the skepticism comes from right because anyone who has any ability to be a little perceptive inside of this space knows the people where the dissonance exists. They're selling you something but when their had had hits the pillow and yours you both now that they aren't exactly what they say they are. Yeah that is something that I have experienced equally in my own life so I talk a lot about congruence like that when you say something and in fact this goes to what you talk about with motivation hack so To me one of the hacks you can use the say something out loud that you want to become true and then by having said I'm moving towards US I wanNA become that kind of person if you're not acting accordance with that that pain that dissonance that you're talking about kicks in and makes people act in a certain way. I WanNa go back when you said that. Rachel wakes up with this furnace of motivation. But you don't have that. I think there are so many people like literally the number one question I get asked is how do I stay committed to something? How do I go after that thing and I'm always like you have to build desire? So what are your motivation? Hacks to stay amped up to wake up every day to actually give it enough to become that person because you've got these lofty goals. There's going to be hard all the time. So how do you stay going? It's two things right so it's on the one hand in just incredible consistency like the habits that we have the morning routine that we have. It is non-negotiable. It starts at nine. Pm The night before like my morning routine starts at nine pm right. I want the life I say one then. I have to be asleep by nine PM because I have to be up by five and if I don't get sleep. I can't have two o'clock in the afternoon happening the way I want so it starts at nine and I have a meticulous routine that when my alarm goes off. I am a CYBORG. It's not there's no conversation. There's no snooze. I walk immediately to the exact same place every day. Because that's where my shoes are and my workout stuff is. I moved from there immediately to wear the green juices immediately from there to where the produce it like. I just go in a very much like methodical. Beat by Beat step-by-step routine but the second thing is I am perpetually trying to find something physically that I can push myself further through to show myself that I am capable of more than I believed I was capable of and this has become a newer hack over the last couple of years as I've truly try to be my own catalyst for the momentum. I want in my life. You GotTa Talk About Twenty Nine Twenty nine hundred twenty nine. That's one eighty nine fucking crazy so twenty nine twenty nine we get done with two thousand nine hundred nineteen and we're sitting around table and the question is what was the most important singular event of the entire year. My wife and I got recommitted fifteen year wedding anniversary side of a hill in Ireland. That was her answer. I wish I'd have gone second because my answer was completing this physical challenge because in this twenty nine zero twenty nine. It's unbelievable endurance event. And it's more about mind than it is even physicality your ascending between nine thousand feet. That would equal everest thirteen times as it turns out in the place that we were in. Utah up a hill at a very steep pitch that for hour and a Half Hour. Forty five minute intervals of the hardest work. I've ever been through your pushing through thirty five consecutive hours of effort and when I was like two or three a sense in I was one hundred percent certain that it was not a thing I was capable of and when I finished that thirteenth climb and could put on this red hat that they give you. I now had reframed what my body was capable of. I refrained mind was capable of. How'd you go from certain you weren't going to make it to actually doing it. That's a pretty big shift especially in the middle of pain and suffering it. Well in one way. I have as an accountability partner and Best Friend. A woman who was wired. Unlike most of humanity's right so she was like okay. You can die in a ditch. The bottom I am going to just keep climbing and the idea that she might continue without me super motivating. I would also happen to be the beneficiary of someone who's been here. Serendipitous Lee writing down on the Gondola West. Gondola with us on the second after the second column o'brady happened to have just been walking up this hill and though had no concept of who he was as we were walking up the hill we're sitting in the scandal and he says Oh. Yeah Hey my name's Collin. Okay what do you do? I just walk across Antarctica unaided. I'm like Oh are you a Cyborg sent back from the future or are you made of skin to and when I realized that like this human truly as the same humanity as I do was capable of spending fifty four days of time pulling a sled a switch went off and I was like you know what if he can do that. I can walk up this hill eleven more times and I just decided that I was going to do it. That's such a cool moment. Especially because knowing Colin Story Day. One he breaks down crying. It's like I'm never going to be able to finish this and so to go from like crying. I can't do this to setting a world record in beating the guy that was essentially racing him by someone gobbly number of hours days. I think Because he just finally found his sort of mental space to occupy and then went after it. It is really interesting to me when somebody can do that. Just full stop but when you can do that in the middle of the pain and it really really interesting and what I love is again using that like Yo. I don't want my wife to do this and I'm listening out. I think that's really powerful and I think a lot of people ride from how useful that is and then you know hearing that as somebody else can do it. I'll say this to. I mean this is how much of an imprint. This thing had for the last six percents the better part of half a day. I did one thing in through the nose. I said the words stronger out through the mouth. I said the word better had ski poles and that is the only thing I did. I became a robot walking up that hill. I said stronger as in this step I am becoming a stronger. Human being I then said better. I will be better for having completed this challenge. I said it so many times. I got the words tattooed right here on my arm because I needed a reminder that when I face a challenge that feels mentally more challenging than I believe is possible for me to complete or physically beyond the limits of my capacity that I am stronger and we'll become better for having endured whatever that thing is. I used it in completing my first marathon. I will use it as I am getting ready to do. My first IRONMAN. I'm not looking for like the one hundred mile race necessarily. Yes you're going to say here's the thing right. And the headline is I came into the idea of pushing myself physically with some limiting beliefs around what was possible for someone with my frame that I'm too tall to run was a story that had been told to me for years and years of my life. I didn't run a single mile until I was thirty. Six years old wo one single mile and in this last year. I've run a thousand miles. That's crazy so literally literally one thousand miles on the road. And so it's just you if there's something in a story that was given to youth the lens of someone else's fear you have to test the hypothesis of your truth and I man I now. I'm in this position every single day of well. I didn't think I could climb that mountain so I did it and now I believe I can do other things dude. We've got to go back to the statement that you just made about. You've got to test the hypothesis of your truth. That is so fucking red and I think that people get so stuck and they believe something and they never tested. So how do you systematically begin to one identify that you have a truth except that it's a hypothesis and then how do you go about testing? I've had to do a lot of work. It began for me honestly in the midst of being stuck. I sat on a couch across from a stranger in therapy as a vehicle for my more pragmatically wired brain to understand why I wanted to stand why I do. The things I do and sitting with a therapist was a way for me to get a set of answers to my behavior because it was not something that was living on my conscious level. It was in my subconscious in through a lot of verbal processing a little bit of journaling and sitting in front of a stranger who would listen all of a sudden some of the wives start to show up to so interesting so I get asked a lot about like or I'll get ask questions to which the punchline is self awareness but I always struggle a little bit to help people figure out like how does one become more self aware so therapy something that you used. That's really interesting and I love so. Let's wrap this in the larger framework of becoming more self aware but Let's go a little deeper therapy for a second so Most people would balk at therapy. Feels like going back to your thesis about You know I thought that self help for people who are broken. People assume that therapies for people who are broken. So how did you overcome that? And then what were you hoping to get out of therapy? I walked into therapy thinking it was for broken people and at the time because of my station I was stuck so I was comfortable saying all right as a person may be broken what I realize is none of us are broken. We have seasons of broken nests but aren't broken and that therapy as much as I may have entered it with a negative stigma attached to it. It was a gift not just for people who are experiencing a season of broken this but for full and whole people that are interested in having a fuller bigger version of their life. It was truly though for me. This pursuit of finding answers. I was really in like really interested in why I feel like I am stuck though to the outside world as the president of distribution of the Walt Disney Company as the father of three healthy children as the husband to an amazing woman. Who has this house and car and I mean like the optics? They're good and yet the feeling inside was bad. And the lack of congruence in this instance of me feeling the way I thought I ought to give permission to sitting inside of a space that I'd previously assigned some kind of negativity. Once I sat in the seat forget it. It was beautiful. It was a gift and if anyone has any reservations at all therapy. Here's the headline. It's GonNa be hard when you first get in there because you're dealing with a bunch of stuff that you don't want to have to deal with but once you push past the first six weeks time it is like writing in a journal where you are dealing with the conscious thoughts for the first twenty minutes but if you write in a journal for an hour the things that come up in the Thirtieth Minute and the fiftieth minute are things you didn't even know existed but a lot of times people won't let themselves get past the fifteen th minute. They get bored. There's this all this stuff I already know. How do you journal effectively? I Journal by sitting down with a blank piece of paper and I start writing. What is in my head and the first fifteen minutes or so is more about my day and more about my marriage more about my kids and things that are sitting on the top layer of my consciousness and then when I'm not expecting it something comes up that Oh my goodness where did that come from and I start pulling on that thread without even thinking about it. And what's beautiful about it to me is the same kind of experience inside of therapy. When you're saying these things out loud you are taking the weight of them living as a worst case scenario inside of your subconscious and actually now getting to ask a better set of questions around whether the things that you think or the things that you have fear for thirty if they're actually real. Is this actually thing that should be weighing me down holding me back. Is there really a chance of this? Being a lot of the time it was for me attached to the worry of what other people were thinking and when I was able to actually either get it on paper or say it out loud. I was given this gift of this clarity that no-one literally no one cares about what you're doing and that is an indictment on the people in your circle. It's a statement of their humanity. We all care about ourselves and I was given the gift even though I waited a long time to leave of worrying about what it might mean to leave a job that meant so much the framework that I was leaving in Disney to go pursue this opportunity with my wife was confusing to people and I stayed in the job longer than I would have because of the worry of what they might think and the gift I was given leaving was the appreciation of how little anyone was actually thinking about me once I was gone again. Not An indictment on them as people a recognition of their humanity. What is up impact? Hope you guys are enjoying this episode.

Take care and be legendary. I want to better understand how the journaling becomes an therapy. Quite frankly how it becomes an element of self awareness. Is there so I've never done therapy? Talk Therapy I've done a lot of journaling when you're doing talk therapy. Are they sort of pointing out like patterns that are allowing you to then recognize patterns like? How does it go from just articulating to? Oh I now have a growing awareness of what I'm like for me. It was a lot more of I feel statements. I feel like and then I was able to ask. Is that feeling real? Or is that a byproduct of some memory as a byproduct of some way I had to be when I was young and the prompts that I would get or the same that you might get in a personal development kind of setting where you're being asked my my first personal conference same kind of question of who did you have to be when you were young and you know who's loved you crave and who do you have to be like those kind of questions as you start following those threads you realize. Oh I've been achieving all of these years for the affection of this person and it's like imprinted on me in a way that makes me believe that the only way love will show up in my life is through me achieving for that love and whatever version of that is for you if you had to be a certain way as a younger person or you've had relationships that went sideways and you in the bad experience of that relationship took something and had it sink in as a truth. That was not actually true. It informs a little bit of what you now take on a part of your self identity and the opportunity in that therapy the opportunity journal at least for me is to pull those things to my consciousness and actually ask if there's truth and wait to them in a way that if they live underneath his fear insecurity and ridiculousness a Lotta Times so it. It's very impressive when somebody freeze themselves from the shackles of what other people think. I'm guessing that you still struggle with it. You now have mechanisms to protect yourself against it. What do you do on a daily basis? So you've had the biggest Pitney. They fall into these three buckets. Most people you just need to let it go but it still stings like when people say something that says. Hey you're fucking up your broken or whatever. What's your internal process? When that happens well it used to be grabbing a drink. I'll be honest like I would be triggered by someone saying something and I'd grab a drink to mute a little bit of the insecurity sometimes can provoke an impostor sa- could it could provoke all kinds of things and I would grab a drink. I've tended now to run because my process of being out on the road for a length of time is giving me the benefit of time like truly taking time before I have a reaction has been singularly the most important thing but to there's something therapeutic about the way that my body moving in nature outside with that run allows me to actually think through. Is this real or is this imagined. Is this real is is the number one question for me to ask and ninety nine times out of one hundred it is not real like this person has a problem with me okay. Is Their opinion something that really deserves a front row seat in my life and if there are people with cheap seat tickets that I am affording front row seat opinions. That's a meat problem sometimes. It's a it's a run but sometimes it's just asking that question. Does this really matter is this? Fear is this opinion real and the answer ends up being no it still staying. Does it still hurt? Yes but if you can take a beating actually deconstructed you tend to get free or faster. It is crazy the physical transformation that you've gone through so getting your body moving is huge to getting your mind in the right place. Have you read the book spark by John Radi? Now Fuck. You'll love it dude. So in the book he talks about how. Yo You have a kid. That's struggling with math. Make them do. Pe Right before math and judge P entirely by how high they get their heart rate. So don't judge them by like whether they finish a mile in a minute or six hours. It's where was your heart rate. And so if they're pushing their heart rate up hitting a certain level of their whatever the hell the heart rate percentage was based off of then they get a grade because they're they're really pushing themselves and he said if you do that you will see that. They will perform better in that next class because getting getting the body moving stressing the heart in a positive way actually makes people perform better cognitively. Which I think is really really interesting. Talk a little bit about one. The continual escalation of the running that you just hinted in your prep four and Ironman which is pretty extraordinary but I also WanNa hear about the promise that you made yourself about drinking so I in an interesting way knew intellectually that the thing I needed was a thing that would be uncomfortable right. I did you know that. That's so powerful. Well know that the number of people and I bring up cold fucking showers that like crawl into a hole. That's that's a pretty big thing. Well I was given the gift of really understanding the connection between growth and fulfilment and I had not previously had my finger on the pulse of that I was the beneficiary at Disney of unbelievable job growth over time the first ten years. I had ten jobs so my professional. Add was satisfied on an annual basis. I was perpetually drinking from a fire hydrant and what I didn't realize was my fulfilment was about always being uncomfortable. I was walking into a room of people to whom they themselves thought they were more qualified for my job. I was asking a lot of questions and learning a lot on an every single hour basis. And when I found myself in this job for what ended up being seven years or the first three years were the steepest learning curve. I could have ever asked for those first. Three years happened to also be the height of me being fulfilled and it wasn't until I sat in therapy. It wasn't until I went to a personal velma conference. It wasn't until I started reading some books that I could actually put my finger on it. Oh you are unhappy and unfulfilled because you are not in a position where you are being challenged in the absence of you being challenged. It's impossible for you to be fulfilled. I you know I don't want to undermine or underscore how hard the team was working at Disney. Because everyone was working hard but I as the leader of experts was not in a position to fail. The movies were too good. The leadership was too strong. My team was the best in the entire universe and so in the absence of being able to fail. Could I make a mistake at times? Of course but on the whole there was not a chance for me to fail. If you are in a position where you can't fail. You are also in a position where you will never be fulfilled. And so when I finally figured that out it was okay. I need to go chase something that I can't fail at not to fail. But because of the possibility of failure guaranteeing that I will and I will grow from it as much as I knew that intellectually. I make this leap. I leave what I knew for what I needed and in doing. So dealt with the identity shift challenges dealt with going from being the primary breadwinner to my wife. Just wildly eclipsing me went from the status of a big company and a Nice Business Card to something of more of a startup and it was so jarring to everything that I knew that what had been a casual relationship with alcohol turned into a not so casual relationship with alcohol and I was having drinks to just smooth the rough edges after a long day and what I didn't realize as a couple of drinks was turning into more than a couple of drinks was that you cannot mute the anxiety without also muting. The Joy. Alcohol is not a local anesthetic. You're right you can't just take care of the problem without also taking care of any of the good and so I knew intellectually that yet. I'm pursuing discomfort for growth. I was muting the which meant I was also eliminating in drinking the chance for me to grow. Which was the entire reason for me doing this. Big Shift in my life in the first place. When I decided to write the book the edits coming back on the book as the team goes from five to sixty as my wife and I are working together for the first time figuring it out as. We're starting new things in this business. That are wholly and totally outside of my discipline. My competency said I in stacking those things had trouble had a troubling time with alcohol and my wife best one of the best and worst things about her is the ability for who her to be unbelievably direct and we had a hard conversation about what the Heck I'm actually doing and so I've decided on that day. I am not going to have a drink for a year because I committed to the discomfort as a thing that I needed for growth and the responsibility that comes with this job with my relationship to my wife with what my kids deserve is that I am sober enough to actually both experienced the pain of all of this growing the identity stuff and everything else but also show up well for them and so I had to identify the triggers. Where do they come from? And every time one showed up replace the routine grabbing a drink with putting on shoes and as evidenced by the thousand miles. The stresses. Don't go down. Even when you introduce new and better coping mechanisms. The stress is all there all the time. I've just changed the way I think about failure in this business as being a part of what comes with running a small business and running as a thing that helps me process what basically ends up being failure happening on an every two or three hours basis. How do you deal with failure? Like what are you? So I'm going to guess that part of it is going to be okay. This is the very thing that I need to grow. But there's also and this is what I like about your message. There's a fucking reality to you've got to build the business and if you fail. Sixty plus people are out of a job. So there's there is the yes like hey failures good and I love it. And it's teaching. There's also like I have to be extraordinary what I do. So how do you manage? It was definitely hard in that. I came into this new job thinking that twenty years of entertainment experience were totally imperfectly. Transferable what got me here. We'll get me there and that mistake. Oh man having come out of an environment where with his biggest team in his competent team has established a business model right. It was more trail management than I would argue what we're doing and trail-blazing and in any kind of trail-blazing startup scaling. You're going to fail. I it's just a guarantee and yet because I'd come out of an environment where failure didn't happen or if it did it was fixed so quickly by someone with twenty five years of subject matter expertise that when things started going wrong in our business even though again from the outside things look successful. There's problems happening in the business. I wore them as is this may be a sign that I don't have the skills to do this job. Well or am I may be going to be exposed as an impostor who should not actually be doing this work and so I I took it very very personally until I had the benefit of sitting around other people who have spent more time inside of the entrepreneurial space to say no no. This is normal. This is Wednesday. This is actually what happens here. And so like the generosity of getting us it was someone like yourself or I mean. We have in John Maxwell a person has become a fantastic mentor and friend and he said at one point a leader never has two good days in a row like that's just a fact of running a small business and so you can either decide. I like to run a small business or you can decide to have multiple good days in a row. But you can't have both right and so like what a gift okay. It's not me it's just like this is the thing that we've chosen now. Good News. We're two years in. I can see it as a as you might put it data rich stream of Info. Right I can see it that way now but for the first year. I had a really hard time seeing it as anything other than do I actually even though I've got this great resume. Do I actually have the ability to do this job as well as I think. I can hope people here that do so to see somebody. You struggle with something like that to have a imposter syndrome to deal with the self narrative everybody hears about but like this has been part of the fun getting to know you you are like the most freakishly unguarded human being. I've ever met in. My life is so fucking cool and I love it so much because dude look. Your accomplishments are ridiculous. And the fact that you've been able to go from one thing to something that that as you've learned is wholly unrelated quite frankly in structure if nothing else yeah and find your way through that to rebalance yourself to find different coping mechanisms to find the path to success is is really really incredible. What's it been like for you to go from typical male breadwinner for a long time in your relationship and then to have the roles reversed did that. Fuck with your head at all. Absolutely I mean from the beginnings of this decision. I had only ever been the primary breadwinner. I'm eight years older than she is further along in my career when we met as much as we met in the entertainment business. She ended up becoming an entrepreneur and in that journey yep she continued to grow her business and it had ebbs and flows like any business might but over the fifteen years. My career was outpacing. Some of the growth in her business to the point that I had as a part of my identity provider and so we decide to make this leap and when the book comes out as much as it does well. It had a very bizarre curve. It ends up by the time. I'm leaving the company hitting number one and staying at number one and it opens up so many possibilities for the business and to say that my wife in the last year had a big year would be an understatement. I think she may have in terms of provision for the family had a bigger year in the last year than I had at the ten previous years at the ball Disney Company and so I went through because of it having been so entwined in my identity crisis where I thought because of the way that my salary afforded a backstop for her taking a chance on some new piece of the business if she wanted to go into some space required capital. Don't worry I'm here in case it doesn't get the kind of return that you're hoping for and I'd given value to her loving me because of the security and the way that that ended up becoming a part of our relationship and when it was gone. If she doesn't need me will she still love me? Became a real thing which sucks because what it actually says is. She doesn't love me and less or that it's a contingent. Kinda love which is in love at all and so as much as it spun me down into this place getting unpack. It actually has afforded us a chance to appreciating how great a love always had because of it never having been about who made more and things like that I will say though like we are in the midst of shifting our roles are titles at the company and what's interesting is when I was leaving because of how I as the man as the person who was leaving this bigger company for smaller company. I'd put a lot of weight into what my title was. An ad pushed her even though she'd spent fifteen years time as the founder of this company to be the CEO and that request of her was a hard request for her to hear right. There's a lot of pride wrapped up and having been a female founder. We run a business that is primarily serving women and so for me to have asked her. Hey I'd like to the CEO was a thing that because she knew. Hey I'm looking at the tipping point to bring in an integrator operator that can help me the visionary take this to the next level you have a special set of skills like Liam Niessen come on in right. She was willing to yield but she did. It begrudgingly and did it. Because of what for me was very much ego not anything else driving that need and it was a little more than a year in when the distance from the weight that I've assigned to other people thinking certain things about me because of my title had completely dissipated and be in part because of that gift of my now knowing that nobody was actually paying attention and thinking about me that we got back into a conversation and it was wait a second you as the visionary. This is Your Company. You are the engine that is driving. Where we're headed. I am still going to every day. Play the role. I play as the operator integrator to help us get there but we can get there without the what. You are the what person I am. The how person but the person with the what that doesn't make a company and so we've now swapped roles and so if you know anyone who's listening in any way has struggled with like anything in the ego space with title especially if you're working with partner that Shit don't matter you navigate some insane waters and I will speak from experience. Working with your spouse is a whole beast that requires a lot of attention and a lot of thought. What are some marriage tips? Well I mean we have a standing date night. Every night doesn't matter what is happening. We are going on a date and there have been plenty of times. I will say especially as we have worked together in the last two years where we have gone dates loving each other more than we've liked each edge just real talk because they're in the way that my practical to her vision roles play. There's just an inherent friction that has to exist for the benefit of the company. That sometimes it's hard to immediately pivot into an appetizer at a nice restaurant in Austin Texas and so but staying in consistent and that we value intimacy it is an important part of our marriage and in that we make out on the regular even though we have four kids which is like. I've thousand kids so like we're consistent with that we had to. We started working together. Fundamentally change the way that we have hard conversations with each other we had been in a long part of our relationship. A little more codependent. I would say in how we avoided things that could potentially tip someone into a bad mood. Be something that may be created a little bit of emotion and the stakes got too high. We have too many things to do. There are too many employees that are not depending on us to stay together on this and so we had to like Tim. Scott style employ radical. You Know Kim Scotto. So Kim Scott wrote a book called radical candor. I like it already. And the idea of radical candor is if you have respect for the person that you earn relationship with then you owe it to them in the moment that you're watching them do something that's outside of their lane or inconsistent with their personal brand disconnected from company values. Pull them aside and respectfully give them feedback in a way that can have them appreciate how they could have done something better for the benefit of them actually doing something better and in the times when it's a big enough thing. We send emails to each other articulating. Very clearly what it is that we WANNA make sure we say right so that the other of us will have the time to read. It potentially get emotional about it. Let the emotion diffuse and then come back with a reaction that is something that the other person can actually hear very good tip all right. Working People engage with you and learn more online. Mr Dave Hollis on instagram Dave on facebook. The HOLLIS CO DOT com is where every single thing Rachel and I are doing in our company can be found. Come hang out with us at a live event. Jump into some coaching all the things. That are all their final question. What is the impact that you want to have on the world? I want to help people appreciate this idea that they have to leave the harbor of safety and security for the opportunity to grow. I mean I'm I'm right now. I'm I'm crazy about. I got this Tattoo. Ship is safe in harbor. But that's not what ships were built for. I got it as a promise to my wife that I wouldn't find myself back in that place where I was stuck clinging to things that were safe anchored to the harbor not chasing the choppy waters for the opportunity to grow. I got it as a reminder for my kids that the only way that they will be fulfilled is to push themselves outside of their comfort zone and do things that challenge them to chase failure to fail so that in failure they will actually grow and I got more than anything as a reminder for myself because I still wake up plenty of days unsure if I can be the captain of this ship on these choppy waters and I have to remind myself that I was built for this. I love it man guys. There's a reason that I did this dude so much. I think it's fantastic. I think everything that he puts out of the world is crazy. Blend of vulnerability and fucking hysterical humor. He is hilarious. He is insightful Dive into his world. If you want a chance to open up yourself gain the self awareness that you want. Learn the skills that you need to go and do the things you want to do. You will not regret it of this.

"Hannie. Studio for the first time. It's good. Yeah, you got to be next to the MIC scooby all right. Six Inches Up. Six inches though it's not six feet in the studio at six inches. Type Out Well the identify what six inches! What are you telling people? I'm ten. Bring them. From Banner Palm Rules to Vegas and everywhere in between it's time to party, Sheena Shay this is Dan again and now. Here's your host Sheena Shea. What's up everyone we are back getting into some Shenanigans I've got my boyfriend. Brock, who is my co host? But also my guest today checking out the new studio here at Action Park media for the first time. How dope is this? But I'm happy for you. It's a good location I think i. think he under good things in here. You're GONNA work really well with each other and The world is yours to now. Moving forward got a lot of cool things. Plan for you for everybody really been more direction. Yeah, and I like it. Yeah, I'm excited. We have some fun topics we want to talk about, but also so. We're going to be taking some of your questions that you sent in on Instagram so. I say let's just get into shopping nearby where we go I while I don't want to talk about. Because I just recently started coming back to La and I saw my neighbor and marina for the first time and I realized three months. She thought that like Brett lived there now because he's been just keeping an eye on the place, so he's like I. Think Your Neighbors Think I live here? That's from so I saw her and I was like. Oh my God the last time I was here like we've had like pop in out once or twice, but the last time I was really there was Saint Patrick's Day i. mean the fact that it's been three months is a different fish like with the gyms being closed with I. Mean now don't want to go back, but my no. Adjusting to this new norm of just like the longest station in palm springs ever. But I will say I could not be more happier that I bought the house when I did because I was planning on April, stagecoach Coachella a party month at the House I was not planning on a worldwide pandemic. It was the most perfect place for us to have stayed the last two months I think the pandemic itself like obviously it's not ideal for show, but the the silver lining on that was what my mom told you not tell Jesus a few times in this Portland today idea of pandemic and that. People are finally at home of their families. Kids have the appearance around. Animals have their owners. Penney doesn't know what's up. Why are you here every day? And like you said your mom said like the cats and now having fun. It's enjoyable, but obviously realities coming back comeback in San Diego. You know how you dealing with that one. Yeah, wasn't it say just to finish what your mom said? There is more to that. It was like you know. More home cooked meals than less pollution, and all of that that was I mean me, and you had a good little trip on that one time I went on what theory on the fact of how badly out to this planet, and the reality is other bioluminescence wave bothering us his wife sticking around for a while. And everyone's like. Oh, it's. It's something that they stick around this long. It's like well, not really it's just because we have zero pollution zero, a lot less pollution in the NFL Wat- is know those microorganisms going to die because of how sensitive they are so. My idea is humans. Do Better, okay, learn from this I. Hopefully we come out of this and be a bit more aware, and we don't fall into the same trap that we had before, but with everything going on right now I think I. Think we are more in lined than anything else better patterns. Let's let's do better, you know we've been saying that twenty twenty. I can't believe you didn't get the joke in the card. So I've always said that like I. Feel like in Your Thirties. You make more money and like you're already obviously a successful gym owner, but I'm a big person with cards and feelings and writing down in cards knows this, but. I thought, it was funny. The only card at the store for a thirtieth birthday it was like you're thirty and you just keep getting better and better than it was like. Year. Let's try for richer and richer and I thought it was funny, but you didn't get it or didn't think it was funny, wasn't it was just really come on rewind and everybody will happen to forty eight hours before that right because this wasn't just like an average buffet potty. This was a lot of shots, a lot and a lot of shots. It wasn't like a party with Tom. where he meets these beautiful outrageous drinks, it was Birthday shot so thanks to everyone that came out and celebrate with us, but that was a lot of Tequila always dusty, and and then I read the first page Mike thanks for the CAR I. Forgot? What on the first base all our read was. Let's get richer rituals like okay cool. I like that she didn't. You didn't get to play on words, but those those a lot of downtime between the reading of the front page and the second page like seconds the downtime couldn't connect the dots. You know in your thirties like I mean I would hope everyone from their twenties. Thirties is making more money. I would hope in our forties. We make more. You know you just get more successful with age but I thought it was a funny card. Thanks for my God and listen guys. She's what she's trying to hint at is Qods in Roy I? Think things she likes. Lead is and I need Terada someone lettuce, okay, for. For my birthday, and then I want to get into you beanbag in San Diego feeling about that, but for my birthday. We're obviously we were still in the band. DEMOC in quarantine so couldn't have a big party or do anything like I normally do. As you guys probably know and have fallen for the last decade by eyesight. I was like look. I don't expect like things on Amazon or whatever we're taking forever to ship, there's. Nothing that I really wanted or needed I, said all I want for. My birthday is just just a car. Just write your feelings down the poet. y'All like literally you are poet, not just when you're drunk, but like you're really good with words, and so all I want for. My birthday was just a card with hand written feeling, which is fine. If you express that to me like Oh, I did over again. Until, it's in there. Like I said I forgot what the first part of the COD said to the second part of the know your audience. Okay but listen learn and I still haven't been in our cod to be honest, but I'm working on it. So I even sat in the car I, said as you know, I'm a person who likes cars and feelings unless you forgot again. But still for my birthday I was like he's like I think I know what you want. I listened. I listened and I was like. I guess I guess we'll see and he's like. Oh I know you said you wanted to massage, and because the spas aren't open, I'm going to give you an eighty minute. Massage and I'm like I mean I will take it. Obviously, that's not what I said. I wanted I did say like. Oh, I wish I could go get a massage I. Really Want One show. Headed of Lee so that was the underlying turn of Oh, I wish I couldn't get a massage. There was like a wink in there and I was like how got. But I didn't well. We set up the which I'm now. Not doing anymore and I just don't to remind y'all with diffusers or humidifiers. If you do have a cat, the scented. Are Toxic to cats before we knew this though we had the humidifiers going. It smells like lavender in my room. We had SPA music well I put it in my ear buds. Music. He watched his like Viking victory. Whatever show! Yeah and so I got my eighty minute massage and it was incredible like see. I listened. I got what you wanted. I was like I mean. It was also something I wanted, but oh, come up for some on morning. It's OK deal now. It's just a joke because you like didn't get it by. Anyway, A for his birthday this weekend. Happy Belated Birthday here shenanigans, thank you say we celebrate all month, so let's keep it going. We don't need to. Do you have enough this. Did it?

Let him know what they can expect. When the gym opens backup definitely, so obviously goes forty. Five is functional group training, so they've taken a functional out of it. We kept it in there, but we just wanted to keep members from moving through the room. Stationary K. This to reduce that Khan of contact with everything so now in year you're going to have your designated space with your designated equipment, and then now program is on. The TV will digitally change, so you can see the Knicks exercise without actually moving to another station. 'cause you'll have the design workout rod in front of you. one-stop shop obviously is a new era. We live in so if you WANNA, come down, check it out awesome. From that guys moving on? I will say I. Think I did at least six to ten classes at forty five before I realized what it stood for, and that it was a forty five minute class, I was just like. Oh, it's F. I had no idea what it stood for, and then I actually looked at the sign. One day I was like functional. It's forty firmenich. So this weekend. We were down in San Diego technically Alpine for Brock's birthday. We did a big dirty thirty. James Zimmer cal came. A bunch of your friends came. We had Jamie and breadth there. We went to the Haas Casino and resort. Huge thank you to them. They hooked us up with the dope. IS THE RE BEDROOM SUITE? We had I mean full living rooms in each suite, a pool table our own putting green. Walk Right out to the pool. Full kitchen refrigerator I mean you can actually live there, so wrapped up for the birthday birthday spread the welcome messages and. We have this massive photo of us. They gave us. They gave us a digital photo and photo photoshop Chinos face, and my face onto the characters of dirty dancing. With a holding them up and ESPN in them around, and that's that's how Goto. That's how I snuck in. My first kiss didn't realize she was a fan of the show. Of dirty dancing but. Definitely found out after that that's how thing now so. We try and make it a habit. But it was pretty cool. took care of us the food hunting. Off So obviously everyone repeal of social distancing, and that this was a great way to get people together by kept kept us in our spaces. Well, obviously, they were all adjoining rooms, but we're. There was a group of eleven of US and twelve and they socially distanced US between cable six. It's just the rules which by the way I found out that in California now have gatherings of twelve and protests of up to one hundred. Buddhist some protests in my backyard against cheap alcohol maybe sometimes. So, we got to dinner the first night at the Grove Steakhouse and we have the private room and there's two tables very far apart was six people each and we're like. Can we push them together? But they're like no, literally like six person maximum per table, but one of my friends who is exactly six foot Langley laid down on the floor and he's like you're. You're further, vote? We're like I I'll get off the floor, thank. Away. We realize what he was doing as he was doing it and I. Think he even you. By the time he was hidden under the floor that this was a bad idea. But then he proceeded to lot in there on the floor and they were able to move. The is about four feet closer. It was fun. Though the food was incredible, we had seafood towers and always caviar and filet Mignon, and Salmon and. It was because we've been harm with my cooking. Your home cooking is so good I don't knock your cooking or definitely I mean this. Was this this was they did well. They took care, everybody and the services on point, and actually lost somebody win their chef Larry. The Man Fan of the show she now and the. He got a photo of his daughter there. Good Wagner he came in. We run into him. He said get a and took care of us so. Thanks a ball. We had really good dinner and it was fun to be able to just get dressed up for the first time in a long time. I didn't even remember put eyelashes on I think the only time I've done that with for the reunion. Good, thanks! We got her out of the crop top for a hot second checks. Cows dresses because in Palm Springs. I don't have any Dressy I've got sweats. I've got workout clothes and I've got what sir. Go Good. You look good by me. Thank you a good weekend. Yeah, I did my dad life which I never do I. Just I wanted to look a little extra sexy for you this weekend. She did yeah. But yeah, so now he is pretty much back in San Diego fulltime just here on the weekends because the gym is opening back up and it's going to be an adjustment because I'm not back to work right now. Not Everything is open out here yet. Things are starting to open backup like some bars and restaurants in Venice. Marina Delray are open now. We don't know anything about filming right. Yeah. You don't know anything so just to update you guys on season nine. There is no update. And the update. That's the update sell for now I'm like I mean the restaurants are still closed and honestly I mean even when we heard, they might be slowly opening and backup as soon as next week, but even if they do I'm not ready to go and just willingly put myself around people on a regular basis. I need to like slowly. Ease into the world again because as we know, I discussed had a panic attack in Arizona and even being at the pool this weekend and And San, Diego people coming up asking for photos, and it's like I'm not going really stay six feet away from me and the photo. I'M NOT GONNA. Wear Moscow photo I don't WanNa, be a bench, but also I did feel good visas because they were temperature checking before you went into the casino before you went into the hallway of the hotel room before you went to the pool, they were checking you and checking you not that that's the only indicator of you have cove Ed. Feel good knowing that they were so on top of it, and we're checking people but I'm like I'm not I'm not ready to go fully back into. We whole life just yet, so now I'm still out in Palm Springs. He's working off down in San Diego and I'm like so what do I do? You To. Tell you what she does. Check on me every hour. No I don now I. Don't even want. Put that out there. Yeah, because I do not. Check on me the night. Check on you. Let's be real. We look at the coals. It's one hundred percent Nicole and her. An hour later. Hey, what are you doing? Watching thirteen reasons why there are ten episodes, he's then. Yeah speaking of if y'all didn't know nut flakes. Thirteen reasons why their final season is on right now, I think I'm GONNA episode five. It's just as good as always. It's getting a little a little farfetched postseason, Claes, visions and whatnot, but it's it's a good bench. We binged Ozark. We did all three seasons in quarantine. That was so good, but now I'm I'm so sad that season for isn't here yet. Because like I need my ruth. Run of your friends with her I. Will I wanna her on the podcast. We'll get her on the pro. If you're listening. If anyone knows ruth from Ozark, she is such a good actress. Oh my God. Girl is so good. She's a great with that one so guy refinish Netflix's. Saloon, and then we started the bench Disney plus yeah. Like senator looks thanks for that covid twenty twenty. Yeah, actually what other shows! Below Deck Oh. Yes, he has now a new obsession, so I know we've talked a little on the podcast before about how brock never watched reality TV before he met me, and then I got him into real housewives of New Jersey. That was your go-to. You're like Oh my theresa. Your series. By, we got him into that and then I was like you know even though Lisa is an on real housewives of Beverly Hills, anymore, I've standard that show for the last nine years, I'm still going to watch it, and now you've gotten after stealing Denise Richards bag on accident. Denise Rich's until after the fact I wish I knew in front of me. Ask the chick from wild thing. starship troopers. Yeah so now we've gotten him into the House of Beverly. Hills, which is on hiatus. Why Bravo we need answers? By other than that I put on. We're really good friends. I've known Hannah from Below Zach Med for probably six years now or how long that shows went on at least five years, and when we were in Australia, she came out with us, so brock autumn meet her, and she is just a Spitfire, so much fun and the other day there was like a season one or two below Deck Med marathon and I know the new season just started, so I put on the old one brooks like watching in there. What is that and I was like good? Friend and he's like Oh. Shit didn't realize like I don't think you knew what was on when you met her anything just knew we knew each other through Bravo, so he gets in a binge of like an old season, but then we're going to dinner with my mom and my aunt Shirley and so we get back and he's like wha. Wait I need to know if the kid who was hooking up with the guests. Gov Fire like that was like so like four seasons ago Johnny Go. By then the new episode aired so then we started this currencies. I think it's season five. We watched I. So now you're hooked on below deck liked the concept of beloit because you've got a different. First off. This is why productions good production like they finish halfway through a crew, so they have the drama stout a new one, so they just stop and stop. Cliffhanger, you see what's going to happen on the rest of the charter. These colors and everything and Then then the best part about it is, it's like watching a full season of your show or like a normal show, because like things coming in a period of of season, Brazil's a period of ship appeared of A. What do they call that thing when they go? Bang on. And that's it so I. Mean I'm I'm enjoying it but I mean that's going to be left with nothing. Have that much TV. Lift to be fair once we get back to the studio work, and so I enjoy it. We've been Joan. We've got a few other shows on there, but they all in highest so. I heard. They're coming back in July and I don't know if that's because maybe you know. Obviously, we're not filming right now. That's no secret I don't know if other shows if they're normally used to having more programming coming back soon, so they're trying to like. Put a little pause. Think I read somewhere today. That was just wasn't effective. It was just more of the censorship. They just wanted to make sure they went insensitive dealing with what? With in the public now they didn't want to take away from that. That was the big, okay, yeah I was curious and I hadn't looked into it too much. I was just like Oh bummer. My shows not on, so that makes sense there. You Go God at hopefully you know we can get up into production soon one. It's safe I know the Hollywood reporter. Reporter Release Stat this past weekend film and TV productions could go back to filming. However, that's kind of more I think for close sets, whereas our show is the opposite of a closed set. We are filming out in the open every scene whether it's in the restaurant. It's still like there's nothing close other than normally the reunion, so I'll keep you guys posted. I'm sure some of you may find out before I. Find Like I'm always the last to know. For sure like we don't know anything about it, and then people will know before us. It gets put out there so. He'll soon and soon it comes, but when it comes, be ready for it, but what about the reunion? Yeah? That'd be good. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I made three appearances in. Every reunion episode? Sure somehow in cheapskates. They really got their money's out me. You didn't get paid. Where Quantum cheapskate. So we did that from home I think next week, so we've obviously been blogging time week. In quarantine who've been doing a lot of youtube also want to get into the log the weeks. Someone I'm talking about your birthday video, but before that we have I think I'm going to release it next week now that the reunion has aired because I didn't want to post any spoilers. Think there are any but in my I've logged that we're GONNA pose next week after bronx birthday fog. Which is this week? If you guys haven't checked it out, check it out. We're going to do a working from home blog where it's gonNA show I did a co host on the morning show in Toronto. We did watch what happens live from home. We did a fun live. Remember the live thing we did with summer house. We bad drinking game. It was like a quiz game with. The Bravo Trivia. It wasn't good. I'll tell you that run. It was it was just a whole bunch of. Obnoxious people talking to each other. With a truck with a trumpet involved. so whenever someone talked, they'll take of the screen. It was chaotic, and we also did the reunion yeah. I thought the reunion was going to be like that, but it turned out to be one of the better ones yet. I think it was really good I. Think for what we have. Twenty people I think including Andy further reunion to have that many people in one room I don't think it would have worked very well. This season I think Danika Charlie. Maybe although Max Britain Dino are considered primaries. I feel like the storylines weren't as big. They're so like they might not have been there for the whole thing. They might have just popped in for a segment so to be able to have all twenty of US onscreen at the same time to Chime in whenever about whatever? I think it worked out perfectly. Brock literally built the set from our dining room. He moved the dining room basically into the den and I would say about six and a half minutes. That's what happened. Yes, by we were able to build that set and whatnot. It looked so good and yeah shoe television show from home on her own. It was crazy. To. Everybody involved in that for you guys. Got Better as they got on with the as we could see? But that was good I think I think it was pretty cool to watch. My my mom enjoyed it love a little cameo at the end of the what was then to sell in the first part. It showed photos of us go. Second Part was artistic talks and third part is when you come in at the end. You is that when I want to come out tonight to not yeah, today is Tuesday. We're recording and yeah, that'll be out tonight. I forgot so I remember when I met your mom when we were in Australia and October November and I was like Oh, you know when I already know what I filmed. What I said her his. His sister was a fan of the show, and so I knew they're going to be obviously. Tuning in this season and Michael J just remember I was very very single, then I was in a very bad place in my life I was depressed, I said a lot of dumb shit and I was like, but I'll give you a heads up every week. Like what's a fast forward through what to look out for and I've forgotten to do that for the last twenty four weeks and then every week when I watched, it was like Oh my God. Oh, my God, I've forgotten like say like me. Don't watch the first seven minutes of part to. Mardi saw. I Apologize. But you know what it was entertaining I'll just say that anyways back to your birthday, so your birthday video. We, did his sister and I were being very sneaky over the last couple weeks, and we both did birthday videos for him, so hers was sowing credible. It was literally from like the day he was born up until a few months ago. Just all of the memories that they had they share a birthday two years apart, but share a birthday solve birthdays. They had together just all these photos you at the kids like family trips and all this. It was incredible. Definitely, we both shed quite a bit tears. Saghbin. Would even. See that in my flog. It was just good memories. Happy Memories for me. It's a big family thing because I was actually raised as a Mormon base around. and. What I took from that was the fact that I had a good family. I do have a great family, and then extension of my family. My friends and I always joke to she. Got Like I. Don't do friends and to be honest. I am a bad friend and not realize this after watching these videos. At least I'm learning. On all of the people. Two hundred and fifty unread texts from yesterday sweetie. But he has no friends. People know runs two hundred forty eight now. His sister did this really sweet video of like. You know back home and their life growing up, and he thought that was it that was the birthday was done, but it's I had another surprise for him so yesterday morning. When we woke up on his birthday I was like. Oh, you thought that was your only video. Video you're getting no. No and I had put one together with his sister's help of all of your family and friends. Because you do have them from back home. Just wishing him a happy birthday and it with my video and my video. I like started off. We're going to post this on my youtube as well so You guys will get to see this week, but I said. At the end at the beginning of it I was like I felt like it was doing a cameo for you. I'm like Hey Rog so. And it felt weird I was doing a cameo, but then as I'm talking then I'm getting emotional and in the videos like you better be crying, and then I look up, and he was and I was joking, whereas not joking at the same time it was. For me, extra service is that. Is That my love language? Yeah, I, like extra service I think that's me yours definitely words of affirmation clearly. If, you don't want to receive. giving. Yeah. You can text me about that later on spoke. Words of affirmation is my love language definitely. That one, and then what was it was like physical touch, and what the other ones are, but words. Formation was my number one when I did the the quiz, so we did that yesterday, and that was another nice surprise that I don't think you were expecting. Because also, it's like I mean we're very fortunate. We don't really need a lot right now. The Mike and you know me the Gift Giver Mike. Well what do I get the guy that doesn't need anything like what can I do for him and so? It soon. I didn't even think I had any photos of me growing up. There were so many excuse me. Where are these coming from? But thanks to my sister? That was cold. It reminded me of what I was doing. Whom Denise things for? So that was good. It was good a little kickstarter. Overall is a very good weekend. We are going to be doing some more fun videos which I want you guys to write in if you WanNa, text me on my community APP. It is three one O two, nine, nine, nine, three to four. Let us know why you WANNA. Hear or see more of on the podcast in our dogs. We are still figuring out what's going on with the pain teens.

Youtube videos also your workout bands, which if you'll follow me on instagram? You've probably see me post this weekend I. Think Honey I know we said this weekend only, but I feel like we should just keep the sale going for people who maybe weren't on social media this weekend you know. With everything going on in the world with all the black lives matter movement and everything thing, a lot of people have taken a step back from social media, but are still listening to podcasts watching blogs so for those of you who didn't see my instagram. Tell them where they can find your bands and use Code Sheena thirty. Thirty percent off so obviously when we went into the pandemic. Between myself and Sheena, we went ahead and started bodies by BROCK DOT com. We did that to seize. Body broker. Dealer Singular your buddy. Did that to help everybody we wanted to give people access to some kind of resistance training because Hopefully when we do some photos coming out Sheena you can check it out like health is a pot of working out and it's. It's a good to keep retained and keep that going, so we build habits up from that. We created the ban brain, so we just wanted to bring some bands together as As possible and go ahead and get them to everybody now. Obviously through the pandemic we did. We shipped out about twenty nine hundred bands so file. Wow from the hunt. The twenty nine hundred. We had one hundred seventy three guy walkabout. We'll miss. Stop so I apologize. We've made it out, but if you still want to get some bands, we have the last stalk and San Diego. Actually we shipping them out. This week on Wednesday and then she'd been out on Sunday, and we're just GONNA burn through his last bit so Sheena thirty. You can check that and get thirty percent off and. Hopefully?

You're going to help you, Ettelaat and hopefully we can get through this pandemic together. Yeah, so body BROCK DOT com. Code SHEENA THIRTY FOR THIRTY PERCENT OFF. We're only doing it. This weekend is just like a little special for Bronx Birthday, but I think sad were we should keep it going, so we're going to keep going honey. Yes, also coming up, we have a new well, not we. You have a new business venture that you want to get into. Called Brooke Bottoms inspired. Do, we think. Do we think those are? Does the do we think those are shoes? I think it's very own brain to the one of the things. All you're coming out with the SPEEDO line is no actually their shoes, and it's like rock bottom the bottom of the shoes. Red Botham's arraigned bottoms fits album. where it came from from, so we bought a boots. Women's you know now we're in Bali. Big country thing so I made some boots I bought she. Now we put on the bottom of them. Just like Little Fund gift and Brandon the name on the bottom of the share so from that picture you send the Guy Yeah. So that was this is this is my idea. I was like like Andy from Toy, store. Screen showed federal the Andes. Had Horrible Andy, Reid, is this what we want? But just not really like that like in Squirrel riding, so we figured it out, and then that was when I came back from from volley, and I had snow leopards boots. That were a hit New York we went back. We went back after Bravo calling. The same hotel doorman was like. Yeah, we're. Snow Lipid in I was like okay. I'll take that, and that's where that's where the soy products projects come for the shoes I enjoy wearing nice clothing that for big man I want to try and look good I mean I'm not saying dress up shop, but I do my best. Wants to give me some help on, that will take it. Bottoms was. It's going to be the news coming out. I look forward to bringing them out. So yeah, so the little venture ventures gone on honey, and I think we could also expand that into a speedo line because I think brock bottoms I would think bottom like booty more than like red bottoms off to my birthday cake photo Yeah, if you having. New Pose. Brock is not a very big poster. Think that was your forty fourth post ever on instagram. Fourteen hundred post you have forty four. Keep it low, and I give them quality. I saw comment. Someone's like. Why aren't you like praising Sheen on your instagram or what? I forget what the word was that? They said and it's like I. Think it's just like. That's what it was, but it was like you've posted a photo I have only posted one photo of you because we're not trying to shove our relationship down y'all throats. If you WANNA see our relationship, go watch our youtube videos. That's where you're gonna see everything and Sheena by on Instagram Mike at First took us what I think seven months to post anything. Was this because like you came with some some like negative feedback all, let's be real. It's not like I'm not blind to the show I know. What happened on this show obviously of been informed of it and I see it. But at the same Thomas, like I, didn't have none of us have cameras following around the whole time, so it was very easy for me to forgive and forget on that because she's with me now moving forward, but there's a few things like that got upset with me. It was like people. Would judge our relationship is if I was trying to take famous glory from. St Bad, so that was one of them, and then another one more. Exactly it's almost like Oh, well, excuse me like well. What do you think like just trying to throw rocks or something like that? So we just straight up was like well sweet hair. I'm not. I'm not I. Mean Let's be real. She's been really set the bar to home. Now so. But this is clear on. That wanted to I. wanted to make sure she still worlds coming from, and that was why was else was as it was good? And now it is yoga like now we are there. We are on on the platforms a little bit more and. Of Asli I will post more for you guys okay? We have so many gems literally over the last nine months. Who've been together we? More coming, definitely so WANNA get into. Some of your guys is questions one of them that has been coming up a lot was about our current living situation. A lot of people are wondering when we're moving in together and Baba and it's like okay. We're not gonNA. Have just moved in with I mean we did porn. But now you know you're back. Your Business is in San Diego. My business is in La. Are you know little escape escape is in Palm Springs, but for now it's it's working. In San Diego. She's up here. Let's be real guys. Not the biggest fan of the traffic so I think it works very well. And we'll figure it out as we keep growing you guys who go along with that trip of US obviously and. When the time is right when we think we need to make a decision, we can make decisions, but these on decisions that need to be made right now. So you know prioritize some of those. I'm happy now situation and obviously when I'm not without a spend half the time trying to call other. She's doing but. Algorithm and it'll be fun hour. At just fuskus EXO EXA wants to know what's our favorite movie to watch together? I just showed him a League of their own for the first time which he had never seen one. That was good one. I think it's a it's a Ruckman rocket man to be yeah, recommend. We've definitely watched that won numerous times before each other, and with each other. That was that was the thing. Yep. Jibril dot baby wants to know. Where did we meet and for that? I will tell you to go and watch our my boyfriend's log on Youtube where we go into all of the details of the first night we met and up until that day that we shot the blog that was like two months ago, so it was just a short answer at an after Party and San Diego. Much more details if you want to read friends, the meet my boyfriend blog going there. What's next honey question? Who is your role model? Ask you that I I would say my mom. Definitely, because that woman has a heart of gold and raised me to be the woman. I am today. I would be completely lost without her and I just think you know having me nineteen and I didn't grow up with a lot of money. Money but I never felt like I was missing anything in life I think she gave me the best life possible, so many fond memories as a kid, and I just hope one day when I become a mom that I am as good of a Momma's. She is, and I look to her very much I think Bertha. Role models around mums took the few times you'll see. You'll see my reactions on logs with my mom, yeah! I think I'm save the world. Sometimes. They do it all and especially house. Very very lucky very like. I saw another one that came in and I. Don't know who said it, but it said Have you ever been starstruck? And I do think when we were at Bravo Kanu Theresa. You were a little starstruck I didn't understand what was going on TV. Wait. She's in the same room. Oh, there's some good ones in here, but one McCain through here that I. Can Look at the next question was Do I have kids and I do? I have two little beautiful? Kids have my little boy and my little girl. and they live. With him, we touch subjects on it. The best part is now. We actually just started regaining communication with the kid's MOM, and we'll build that relationship up, but I have amazing to kids, and they have an amazing mother. That is A. Step Dad. That's that's raised them to be absolute legend, so people always ask if I've met them. And the answer is not yet because I was in Australia. We had been dating a month when I was out there so definitely way too soon to meet someone's kids, but you know coming up coming up. To start that, we can't travel right now so soon as we can get out there probably early next year, I would hope one of the questions. Are we travelling? country. Do you WanNa? GO TO I. One hundred percent I can't wait to go back home. Yes, mercy, Dot Allen. What is your favorite thing about one another? SORT is formatted in my mouth. What important! I mean I could say the gift given, but I Didn't really get into gals I shut up. Now, I think for me. It's just just her already, said this before I know, but this is a different podcast.

Goes you only see one of? Is Multiple. Sizes and majority of the now she's a good car nodded person anyway. And for me I mean you make me feel just loved every single day which it's sad that I feel like I'm like wow I've never been this happier. Felt this loved, and it's sad to think that I.

Skip and Shannon: Undisputed

Best Of (Steve Kerr + NBA's return, Lamar Jackson, Avery Bradley)

"Welcome to the undisputed podcast I'm your host Jenny Taft this podcast is a condensed version of today's episode of undisputed handpicked with the best segments and discussions. Skip Shannon. Let's go. Warriors head coach. Steve Kerr said no matter who wins the NBA. Title this season. There will not be an asterisk by it. In his mind. He said that whoever wins has to go on a quote, brutally difficult journey to try and win a title. Shannon jewelry absolutely Sixty five games killing and this is going to see that's what you're trying to do, right? You try to get seated everybody's going through. That makes me want to be in the same situation. Nobody's going to have an advantage. Everybody's going to have to buckle down. Be Mentally focused, mentally sharp and do things that no other NBA team was headed head to do skip, and so we're used to like the best team you have. You have home games. You're paying cheering you on your. Home to cry can bring you back now. There's nothing to be none of that, so it's going for me skip. There shouldn't be an Asterik, because in what ninety nine played about this game. I think the same thing and Lebron year. They want twenty twelve I. Think it's first title in the play fifty something game so now skip down the per the season batter the season. It's been battering. you know every time the Lakers win all just a meaningless game, and then they lose all neurotic lost it. Older fees those start till Christmas. Artale. That all star game, we'd be kicking bus all star. Asked about he's here. Raj aims to get number pope Right here. Title MVP. Loss. Talk. About those. We've got to be. Six. Dow really well, that means you can win three straight championship three, but we're going to be playing for awhile. We five more years really. Are you will covert strike the next three years, so you get a five month where? You're gonNA need that as you get into your eighteen, nineteen twenty. Five Oh five MVP's. Piece Paul Chip. So unless my hearing is failing me, I just heard from across the table. My partner Shannon Sharpe say that Hey, if he could play NBA basketball right now, he go to the bubble. The bubble is heavenly. The bubble features fishing, golfing, bowling and video gaming, and you got manicures and pedicures and all kinds of. You gotta give me back. Disney Culinary Staling got it all. You got every amenity known to man and woman right there at your fingertips right, and if it takes two and a half months, so be locked in the ball. You can't leave the bubble. You'RE GONNA. GET QUARANTINE! You're going to get test. I leave no I want to be. So given what you just described to me now I go back to Steve Kerr's quote. This is going to be a brutally difficult journey to try and win winter title brutally difficult. It's all basketball. The time you just to go to Orlando and say it's like an AA. You travel team. You're just GONNA. Go play basketball. That's all you're GONNA do. People are not like you and I. I've eaten the same thing for breakfast for twenty seven years. Okay, who eat the say? Routine like you would ask so it's going to be very difficult for them as opposed to you and I, you and I our pass with flying colors. Would be great. You. Would be great. Everybody else's not like it. Ginny crazy. Okay but brutally difficult. Yeah, really brutally difficult. They're going to play back to back to back. No, they're not gonNA. have any back to backs. No, they don't play it back to back to the playoffs anyway. They used to be more used to be really brutally difficult. Because you'd have in a seven game series, you might have three back to back us. Okay so this is going to deserve an asterisk whether you like it or not. Because two things have happened, they fell short of playing an eighty two game season. We'll give you this at seventy one out eighty two. It's fairly close or while watching. No, no. Because, he's already missed like thirty. So He. Twenty five games. Nearing the end of his seventeenth season Lebron James is Lebron. James just got the greatest break of his NBA career. It's almost like the NBA gods look down and said Lebron this is for you big guy. We're going to give you five months off. Think about that. It's going to be five months since he played a basketball game and he'll be in the bubble refreshed. Refreshed reinvigorated everything feeling good. You got to do nothing but train as you call it there end and recover. You got to recover from all the aches and pains, and all the pounding it took for you to make what I thought was a successful run at winning MVP this regular season, which is about to conclude with only eight more games, so the point is. That the break is so long it's unprecedented, and it's going to give a huge break to Lebron, and it's a hugely bad break for his arch-rival the clippers. What's what are the clippers need to do? They needed Reps. they needed to continue to play basketball where they couldn't go Paul. George inherited hamstring needs Real Creek. What creaky so remember? And Paul. George Together had played only thirty two of their sixty four game right? They only play half the games together and their brand new team. I give you Lebron a D. or brand new. But. They played every game together almost every they played all the way through right Lebron's plan every game. He's trying to be jordan-esque. That'd be nice. Because this this would be the second time in his crease played every gang. Okay Jordan played. That Obama's whatever the point is that the the full clippers roster had only played together twelve times, and they were eleven and one in those games, and I will give you this one game. The full roster lost together was the last game to your Lakers up. Thanks to Avery Bradley. We're GONNA. Talk about him in a moment because he's doing things to get recognized off the court in. In ways I never saw coming from Avery Bradley. Because the greatest game to me, I can ever remember him. Playing was the third game this year Lakers clippers. He made six threes. It was a little out of character for him because he made four just in the third quarter alone when Lebron scored zero points saving and the Lakers seized the lead and held onto the lead to the. We never. We didn't even get close any word about really. On well, you had on Christmas. Day a seven point lead with six minutes. You just coughed it right like we say we try to learn how to play together. Together play together because you can't stay healthy Paul. George came in and with both shoulders work no. Kawais flair every other week. So it's not our fault, it plus I know a guy that couldn't survive the bubble because he had to take to the casino. What are they going to put a casino in the bubble you talk about? That you don't want to. Put a casino. There just might be a little gaming action. How gave that? You. Know what person slots or something I don't know if. You Wipe it down. Played again, right? Okay, so the point is that. It was the worst thing could happen the clippers they got derailed just as they were starting to round into form to figure each other out. Oh Timeout! You gotta take five months off, and now you got to on the fly sprint to the finish. Try to figure out how to play with each other. When the Lakers already did figure it out. Again I will give you this. It will benefit Choas Balki. Arthritic knees to certain extent, but he also Mike come back, and they'll just bark right away. Not that goes, it'd be, it'd be. He been is no George Hamstring. So not good Nah. This this hurt us. We we piloted I grew on both ends of the court. Go David Fowler. A ad was doing what he was doing like I knew he would. How big of an advantage on what you I'm putting you on hot? How big an advantage is it for a guy? In nearing the end of seventeen years in this league, the guy who has played the third most minutes in NBA, history right to get a five month. Break before the playoffs start. Oh, let's just take five months off so I can get completely healthy for the playoffs if I if I tell James the back of. Of The Jersey and you didn't know who it was that you just watched him, go up and down the court and you see him. Do Rock a bye, and you see him giving the folks every night twenty five ten in the eight. If you saw it every night, would you think he was a year seventeen? I saw Patrick Beverley at six feet. One Lakh is three point shot to to try to tie the game on Christmas Day. You kind of look like an old guy, so a one out of fifty by well. That's that sticks in my memory. That's the flash point moment of the year for the La Clippers. Figure that's the moment for them Yep it is. We don't have no moment. It was a statement moment. One block six nine, and not only blocked. It blotted up into his hands off his hands over his head out of bounds over skew clippers ball. You make you like. The mayor was a jump shot shooting motion. He was bringing the ball up to shoot a jump shot and everybody knows what time winding down. You're going to have to bring the ball talk with. A Great Job In the ball with okay, but but day we played the put a third time, and what happened where every Bradley! Beal got a little bra the broiler. Pat. Maybe annoy. You could be right. The leading all I knows you've been telling me that for five months. He's been posting a more. Accords Right Yup. Yup. We go. Okay. But he's not taking any pounding on the basketball court, so it should. He should be prohibited favorite to win. Okay you said it. I'll take it prohibitive favourite lakers, we. have no excuse. To give him because everybody's. GonNa be problems. We're in the bubbling. They're outside of their house. Very excited. We're outside. Everybody is under the same Bella. Just get the sweets. Okay, we get the nicer room, so Steve Kerr can no asterisk I'm saying gigantic Astros because this has never happened in the history of professional basketball a five month hiatus before the playoffs. Have you making all of the Lakers got Ta `bout. Everybody's got ta got five Musab off. Who has the oldest star in the League? Best! You got the biggest gripe in advantage. Those, championships should. Join Guy because he took a year and a half off. ASTERIK nobody'll gotTA talk time Tom. Contiguous was rested for a year and a half. What happened? It gets Orlando when he came back for half a year wasn't even half a year third year. Nothing happened rust happened. He wasn't ready and it costume. And then what happened, he got. Got Ready every and they played a full contiguous season three in a row, and they won three more in a row. Skew, you make it seem like that. What advantage does the Lakers have? They took are they were? They would probably started like okay. We got a nice little rotation. Everybody knows their role understand their role. They were starting to do things that we thought they will be and that got upset. Your guys will get. Paul George Hamstring. He was ended out of the lineup. Every game every third game he was playing. So, y'all get a break also. Janas remember that gotten hurt against the Lakers. Game, so he gets healthy, so don't make between Lebron James. Don't win! They caught a break when he didn't. This season is all about Lakers Clipper Lillard. Did He have? taught. You think he's GonNa win the. What he caught a rate, which guy that called acres of Clippers Lakers caught the much bigger break. You know it, I know at the clippers or going to be all time rusty because they didn't have anything to even build on. They're gonNA rust up nothingness that they just had twelve games as a full roster together. This'll be like reason. Why is that because what Paul George was hurt Kawai with? Load Management. Well for whatever reason they have not played much together all in. It's going to be a huge handicap for them in a huge plus for your guys. Which is why I'm a big spurs fan as you know. One, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine deserved big Asgar because the season started late, it was contiguous. It's they played straight through. They didn't stop it how it is. Who has the best coach? There's going to be in that bubble. Best coach. You tell me it's Frankie da Da. All all dot river go be all go be diagrammed held guy ready to play. Well. Would you tell me dot can't play? Oh? Your he can implement the plan decker top Lebron. Hey. You told me yesterday Frankie's better coaching. Over Hussein, he'll be better in the playoffs right. We got the better place. Okay, you Frankie vs super. Frankie be bragging, called the both account it. That's what we need in a chaotic situation like this. We unfamiliar circumstances. Yeah, they look only help with the clippers. Is that Frank? Vogel is the head coach of the Lakers doc? Rivers is the mastermind of the mastermind is goats. We read about right now. Did Oh. Did you ask? Him He did okay in Boston right there. We'll get up. Really got live Paul. Pierce left K. G.. Jason Terry left all Neil Docs. Team Ran Lebron up out of. CLEVELAND I. Remember when he quipped random. Owners say quit against Boston that lasts playoffs. Well. That's what he said and. Not. I never understood that you say the man Queer, but you've got all your private jet with their big man to come back in Fort Lauderdale. Wow, would you want to quit back on your team? He's in east. East! Way, across the under the radar, they would fly so low tree to let let bygones be. Live forgiven forget. Right. Okay. ACID. Tonight. In this bubble or just the drama it's fascinating is going to look different I know you're happy about it. I really. All the bubble I'm not in the not. See Dogs at the Mirage. How Dog! I'm out if I take my boys I'm out. Dogs are okay okay. Guys. Weren't from home I got Ski Hazel. Tarzan okay. We're leaving the NBA for now. For the second season in a row Lamar Jackson and the Ravens were one and done in the playoffs last year Lamar said he simply looked past the titans, and they caught as ravens by surprise. The Mar- ended up with three turnovers in that twenty eight to twelve lost so Shannon your opinion. Is this the right thing or the wrong thing four Lombardo? Say To admit wrong thanksgiving. You can think that, but you don't say it out loud. You just learn from it and that's what happened. You know, skip the Kotaro gave them the week seventeen. A lot of it started off. The Ravens of Raven? The Titans base they had to go for weeks, and they had to win every game in order to get into the playoff, so you playing a red hot team that has something to play for, and they were treating every game. If it was a playoff game so once they got there. They knew what was at stake, nor for them to to continue on they. You had to know skip. They had done something very few teams I've ever done. They beat the New England Patriots at home and playoff gay. They don't lose their barry off. And only a handful of times have someone to Foxborough beating that team in their building in the playoffs. And so for you to underestimate them, you do so at your own peril. And why would you ever think that? And that's the thing that I? Think people love so much about football skip. It is not a series in basketball or baseball game. You can lose game one. You still got game three four or five necessary. You Plan for football move. The game is on the next year the next day you cleaning out your, you got the locker. You got the hefty bags and going home. You had a great themes that Oh good, and it's over, so you can. Never underestimate anybody in the game of football because there's only one game and especially the playoffs. Why would you think that you underestimate no-one respect everyone. You always be ready to play and I do believe they probably look past like they can't beat us, but you don't look at a team record. And if there they got there for reasons, and if you look at the titans had to do in order to get their as you know there a damn good football team, they've go run the football. They weren't gonNA. Take me chance chances. They were not gonNA put the ball the riot any heels. In order for you to beat him, you better stop there Henry. You couldn't stop there. Henry and what you got behind you. Let them play their game. They could just run Henry run Henry and chewing up five eight seven ten minutes on the clock. Left you with minimal possession. Skip any Lamar Jackson. To. Russia to hurry himself and the play outside of himself. Yeah, he had a lot of yards, but skip the turnovers, and they couldn't find their rhythm, so no I. Don't believe he should have said this out loud. You know what you did, but you learn from it. You move on, you don't say well. We underestimated there. Why would you do that Yup? On this I completely agree with you. This was absolutely the worst thing you could have said because you made an excuse that could come back to haunt you right if you happen to run into this outfit again along playoff trailer wherever? This is a viable Special Hill. Use this on his right word to say Oh, they just didn't take us seriously. No that's not what happened. Lamar you need to own this one? They kick your butt. And you were in a tough spot because you hadn't played football for three long three weeks, and I'm not hindsight second guessing I, guess at that week. Head right here. We're talking about John Haubert play or not play his starters and I said you have to play them some because it's too far to the finish line of your first playoff, guess. And instead they played nobody. They still won the game against The steelers are. Home. And yet. It didn't get him anywhere because it just got him really rusty. They were the Rusty Ravens. Running into a buzzsaw right at home on a Saturday night, and maybe they underestimated that will Tennessee's on a short week because they had to play at new. England as you pointed out, they knocked off Patriots Aska Patriots. It's hard to do right, but they were winning all the games they had to win. And then it goes from Sunday to Saturday night. They have to travel again to your place. And here they came, and they punch you right in the mouth. It's seven nothing then it's fourteen nothing, and then here comes the big fella downhill. Let you. The Big Fella their Kim Nri in his previous seven games had averaged one five four game. Yeah a lot of yours. Yes, so. For something to give A. Tech! He did when they had to win that even though Sean did not play in that game, but he ran over myself. You sound, we'll go tackle. Surgery, so the point was. Now you didn't underestimate them Lamar you have to own the fact. You underperformed the MVP and you had a classically bad nine right? Through two picks one early, you lost a fumble and don't forget that crucial, fourth and one at the Tennessee eighteen. They had cut the lead back to fourteen to six. MID THIRD QUARTER Fourth and one Lamar gets that in his sleep usually and he got stuff. Is it all his fault. No, but again was he revved up and hitting on all cylinders. No, you was not that right, so he had a bad playoff game. Just the way you had a bad playoff game to end his. Right. Charley yeah at home also so he's played to plow games in his life and they weren't pretty. So he's got that hanging over, do I think he's going to have a great PLA-. Yeah, I do right because he's shown me and regular season, he was just need runaway. MVP is all he was, but again. If you say, we just underestimated them, you are disrespecting. You are demanding. You were very bad. Yeah, come on! You gotta own them. And get is pride talking right now. Of course sure it is because it hurt man. It stung out right along with you because that happened to us. In Ninety six, we had the division sold up we had. Brought thanksgiving? Yeah, so we started. You know taking time off and I. Remember my rest a lot of us. The last game of the season we were planning to charge whenever San Diego and so I didn't play John Play I. Don't think TV play so here you are! You got three guys. That's not going to play three weeks. We play Jacksonville and this exact same thing happened. You can't get that out. I can't get it out by hand because. It just like they did. They had to go on scree. Get into the playoffs. They whipped buffalo beat Buffalo. So we know what we didn't play well when you don't play well blue, but. We we didn't. We didn't whether got beat. I got to know Mark Brunell at ESPN and I respect to him hugely as a player wasn't the tallest quarter lefty, but when he got cooking, he could cook. Bad a good team. They had Jimmy's Akina McCartney. Jimmy Smith outside the nature on means running the football they were they were they run the and once they got lead, they started running nature on, and we couldn't get the ball back to same thing to happen to now. He's got lead. He started running the ball and they can get the ball back. I will bet you remember the score. I think it was twenty eight twenty seven 'cause. We tried to also kick it. And we missed it not been thirty. It might have been thirty, twenty, eight, thirty, twenty, eight, or something like that. We try to own sidekick that with what we're sharp staff to. Do. This up. You know why I didn't do too much. Scale because I dropped the third down. That would change that because I think. We're up at the time. We're twelve nothing you drop the drop. The Path Adr two point conversion that would put us up. Fourteen nothing I caught two touchdown, and then I dropped the two point conversion that was a little behind, but I should have just opened. My Hilton caught the ball in the third down I, had an John through it, and then bring it in, and my knee pointed out and I was like. I just remember walking. Days Yeah. Was that your worst day? Ever? Yeah, Yeah because with a playoff game. Yeah Yeah. Well you can't get those back. No, no, no, but you don't get. Run on twelve will play. Our Games got really. Coming yeah, yeah okay so before we let Lamar here. We also have to comment quickly about a video that got posted on the beach. You take it away, you. Where did you see you're not seeing that? Why are you gotTa to do is Talk Robert Words? He was a play a beef ball. Beach Football Flag Slip Black, football that the NFL set up at the program the pro bowl when you you use a rookie. And he wrapped in the sand, and the fan was never quite to say Lamar read. Oba Fee or they call whatever. Yes get why you play if You play professional football. Let guys they do not play professional football bill play flag or and saying football. You don't jeopardize that brought. You work a couple of hundred million dollars. Do. You realize that Delamarre so in the video. He makes a nice move up and under what he does, and then he starts running. Back, but it looks like he's running with a blindfold on like he didn't even see. The Jet Ski runs right over the over. It looks like he's running out into the ocean. What's what are you doing? That's like more dangerous and like motorcycle riding or skydive. I've been John Harbaugh probably like. Heart within his throat, but I I will call them I just like remember after the Super, bowl there was video. Surfaces of PAT behold playing basketball. Yeah, car, going on the phone. No rush that down. If I'm John, Harbaugh if I'm Stephen, Schott, who owner I call them I know that. No, but you should skill you walk it around. A hundred and fifty million dollar paralegals. The meal. All you gotTA. Do It just soda play. Initially. They're gonNA. Redo the deal you a hundred hundred eighty million dollars, and you jeopardize the doing that. Hey, this pandemic makes people do crazy things. We all been cooped up and you get out on the beach, and you say just GonNa, run wild out here on the beach, and you better be careful. You might just run your career. Right out about walking onto. To Walk on the Beach Komo? Be Smarter than that Lars having a rough week. One hundred and fifty million dollar legs just thinking about that day away from all activities walk gingerly, carefully okay. Positive covid nineteen test results have nearly tripled in the past seven days after Florida's governor was quick to reopen the state, and now receiving criticism for it NBA Players Association Executive Director Michelle Roberts acknowledged the issue, and said it was concerning, but not surprising based on how the governor handled the situation, so Shannon if you were an NBA player right now. How safe would you feel going to play in Orlando given? What's happening? Forgiving that I'm going to be in the bubble and I'm not going to be really exposed to that skill. I feel a lot safer a lot safer. Obviously Skip what they're doing, is they're? They're flying the guys? They're not flying in on on commercial flights. They're planning on charter flights. Yeah, so they're trying to limit their exposure as much as possible. Given the circumstances. Yes, they opened probably Chosun. Yes, the social distancing wasn't in place as it should be. The masks were not worn, but people are not taking this serious. They had taken the sears. We could have contained some of this individual beginnings, but now the because it's become so political if you don't wear the mask if you wear the masks. You, she you just a whole and all that. If you don't wear the math, you know you're trying to infringe on my liberties. That's not why why I'm not wearing the masks, so they become so politicized the mask of become politicized skip so it's a weapon on one side, or the other, and so I'm not surprised that the numbers are going in the direction that they're going. Yeah, because we were moving. Moving rather quickly. We had not seen anything you talking about. This season should have asterik. Twenty twenty five have Asterik. Because there's been terrible. We lost Kobe early. All we got Kobe. We just got so much. We got the situation that we got going on with the racial divide in the injustices, so twenty twenty got asked really have to pandemics. Yes, yes, who are ready for twenty twenty one to get here. Look I don't really know what they can do. Like, I said that I. think that's why going to. You'll be met with such punishment if you were to leave. The compound is because of the epidemic that the pandemic that we're seeing, and it's so hot, Orlando because they went from capacities eighteen twenty percent to fifty percent, and then once they started hitting the beaches. Nobody was social distancing. Nobody will wear masks. It was like okay. I'm free and when you've been. been you know in a situation where you're? You can't go when you want to. How you want to the first chance you get you throw caution to the wind. Yeah, and that's what a lot of people did not just Florida. But in the states they threw caution to the wind. And here we go, and now we're starting to see an uptick, and they say by October first. We're GONNA have two hundred thousand. And that quite before flu season, so it could get worse before it. Get any better, but skip. I don't really know what they can do. Orlando is what it is. They're going to be on the bubble. Try to be secluded as much as possible, but that's the best they can possibly for so I allow me to say. The more I listened to Michelle Roberts the where you like her. She is highly impressive. The players are very fortunate to have the having her represent should be the NFL PA WHO I hear you. She is piercingly insightful. Every that comes out of her mouth I'm like. How do you think that related? So she's saying upfront. No one is suggesting that this is going to be an infection free guaranteed environment. Nobody's saying that cannot promise that no guarantee feels. So. She says I guess unless we go to. Well, she says we're. Could we go on this planet? We're you could guarantee infection free. She said there's just no way of finding a sterile environment probably on this, but certainly not in this country right now. Boom correct. So then she took a shot at the state of Florida and she is right on the money because she said. It's concerning what's happening in Orlando again. The rate has more than doubled in the last week in Orlando. It's concerning, but not surprising. She said. I've watched this governor behave as if the virus is an inconvenience as opposed to a virus, right. So I guess watching the way, the state is adhering, are not adhering to CDC guidelines. It's not surprising. These numbers would go up to your point. They're going up. You're trying to establish. A virus free bubble, but it is so pervasive. It's hard to keep it out. Who so I've said this before, and I'm say it again. I am maybe over sensitive to this cause because I live with the woman who is my wife Ernestine. She is become insanely paranoid about. But great paranoid correctly paranoid, even though she wears me out. With all of the guidelines I live under. She is on the money just like Michelle Robert She's. But! It's gotten so bad i. told you if I just so much as take Hazel for a quick walk around our gated community complex when I come in, I must disrobe every bit of clothing. My shoes are off. Everything I wore outside in a gated community. It's awesome and I have to hand. Carry it to the Washer to drop it in the Washer. Okay well. I'm knocking on wood here so far so good. We have managed to avoid, but it's still out there. It's spiking all across this country and to your point, you can't suddenly just say. We're free. Everything's open again. Let's go and forget about the mask or the face covering more any sort of social distancing, so I do appreciate the links to which both the Players Association and the Commissioner of Gone To. They're even talking about. Everybody will wear a smart ring that will immediately tell you your temperature and immediately warn you of any breathing malfunctions that could indicate the early onset of Kovic right so there. That they allow is optional, but you can wear an alarm where if you get within six? Fewer than six feet of someone else wearing the alarm both alarms will go off right well as strict as we are here at Fox. We don't have alarms right right. We don't but as I don't be getting into idea of law. Be Going on now. I KINDA WANNA law. How about it? We live here at Fox in an antiseptic ghost town. There's nobody here, but the right Japanese here. A couple of other people we have. We have what wo- for camera or care. We have one guy right now. We have nobody. It's just his dad in here. She's thus we're talking, but you know what I feel relatively safe. But every every morning when I leave, she kiss me goodbye, it's like. Better, be careful and she's dreading it because she thinks exposures much higher coming in era of Gordon and obviously. Our bubble right? Yeah, that's right skipping. A lot of people look Florida was not the only state and I think a lot had to do with it because the president was. The economy to get going and it's hard. Skip A and he opened, but I just think they lack the guidelines. Okay, if you want open. Leave please ask people to wear masks. Distance Yeah and it's not. Always just! The flu and People Die Anyway Yeah. It is easy for you to say and you have to keep washing or pure. And you cannot, if you go out and you're not social, distancing the the worst thing you can do is touch your face if you touch your face, and somehow you've got some covert on your hands. You're done I. Mean it went from ten people to? Florida went from allowing people to get together to fifty fifty with a lot of people. Then bars with fifty percent capacity. What have you can hold? Three hundred people got one hundred fifty people you go for, and you go to two hundred. A lot of people had a video I've seen. Nobody's really blessing that no nobody's wearing a mask. SKIP. You look I'm trying to get back your business. I'm trying to get the money. People want to come in and eat drink and you know if if they're willing to assume the wrist. What am I to do skill so our Jim that we both go to open today. I believe I don't think you're going to try. For a while. I have seen video of other gyms in La that have opened southern California. They're just. Just do it, you know. They got they got A. They got shot with the big little like nine. Stall shower around, and you work out, and you'll individual bubble they come in and wipe it down and then the next group come in and that pay now. I'm turning my little my garage into our. You Yeah, well at our gym that we go to go to different. Branches Jim, but now you have to have a reservation because they're going to limit. The number of people went in so again to the point of the bubble. How could be much safer? But Michelle, Roberts is the first to say. No one is suggesting this is going to be infection, so they are prepared to have some positive. What I'm still gym membership to my Jim are you. Will I think it's a Solo Act Jim Right. That'd be the only one who has a membership. Yeah, do but I up for you call you. Five hundred a month Yep Valet parking. Really Pool. Round your driveway. Ronaldo to do to get A. Work it up, really yeah, I can't have that kind of iron new push. When I got, don't bail by guy from twenty all the way to one twenty Yup Yup I got kindle. You just bought these. Rogue You're becoming a recluse, YEA! I! The released a statement saying quote, a central goal of our season restart will be to utilize the NBA's platform to bring attention and sustained action to issues of social injustice. Lakers guard Avery Bradley responded to that by telling reporters quote regardless of how much media coverage we'll be received. Talking and raising awareness about social injustice isn't enough protesting during an anthem and wearing a tee shirt. It's great, but we need to see real actions being. Being put in to work, so Shannon is making the better point you make. Both guys make compelling points, but what Avery Bradley and some of these other guys need to understand you talking about a system bits being played for four hundred years. You understand how long it takes. Bills Become Law. They don't happen overnight and they don't I. Think these guys won't immediate gratification for something. That's not gonNA happen sure and use you want. Sponsors the NBA to invest in these communities that I absolutely agree with you but invested. What would you wanted to buy more computers? You want him to in, but what do you? What do you want them to do? was to the organization that you want them to invest in? What do you want them to do with that money? Okay? They say they do that then what? That's why and that's the thing. Okay, you tell them what you want him to do. What you do understand these things take time. Yup Daily would assist them you dealing with institutions that have been in place, the NBA been playing basketball for seventy years. The system that you tried to dismantle topple has been in the place in place for four hundred one years is not going to happen overnight. Sure you could add pressure and says okay, guys. We've seen you've been promising and promising, and the promises have been falling by the wayside. So I need need to see actions. Okay I get. And you can hold their feet to the fire, but I agree with a without. Changing that the NBA can bring the heightened attention because we're craving, live Fort Skip. People are going to watch. And, so I I agree with Bradley. I think that the higher price of front office. A big coaches I think there are a lot of things they can do with the NBA the NBA and asking their sponsors to invest in the black communities, I get all of that, but I believe you can do. Two things can still go play this game and I still I still bringing attention. Just like you're bringing the teacher now, would you? Though shortchanged yourself you having more of an impact, he actually think yeah and athletes have always been at the forefront of movements. You Look at Mohammed Ali in the sixties. You look at the summit with Bill Russell. With Baba a Mama League. Jackie Robinson so scopus athletes have normally been at the forefront of movements when it came to raise issues in America true. Because they watch you. Yep, and people listen to what they have to say. You might not like it, but people will listen to what math league have to say so I believe Avery Bradley compelling points and I believe Adam Silver's absolutely right. This is an opportunity for them to draw even more attention, and it's also for the players to say look NBA sponsors. Ask Your sponsors. We need you to to invest. In the NFL or two hundred fifty million brand Jordan got gave him to give it a go. Give one hundred million I. Think Overton. Adidas is going to give a hundred so skip there. Things that people are starting to do, but you can ask for more, but I believe in the process is going to take time, but you continue to do persevere. Do move on and feel these changes will come about him. To know where that money is going. HOW MARK! And I would like to know the outcome of how much impact it every dollar exactly yes, on all the issues we've been talking about no idea. No. What happened to the eighty nine million pledged in two thousand, seventeen by the NFL to social justice causes all been sphere. But. We'll see. We'll see I. Think the thing is over the next five ten years. We'll see the impact that this money going into these communities we'll see. That is. So Shannon Sharpe always reminds me. Two things can be true. Sides can make good points. They can both be right, but I'm still saying Avery Bradley side is writer. and. Say it because I got a head versus heart conflict, but I'm right where I was twenty four hours ago. My head is with commissioner. Silver and I do agree with his points about our responsibility to this country to play basketball. That's what we do. We want to show everybody that we did not let the virus win. We triumphed over the virus. So I'm all that. Does my heart good a little bit? But but I'm thinking with my head, because obviously right here right now are very livelihood. It's depending on this league playing. Especially the national football league playing God bless them both I hope they can figure out how to do it even without fan. But my heart. The deepest part of my heart continues to be with this new coalition because. All the points are very valid and I find it highly ironic that after we all agreed, and you've said for many years. Lebron James is the number one activist and all of sports. He has the most powerful voice the most insightful voice when it comes to racial injustice in this country. He's been magnificent in stepping out all this platform to say no, no, no enough enough enough, and all the sudden, his quietest teammate, a guy I didn't really give a second thought to Avery Bradley I always knew him as a lockdown tough-minded defender who could shoot the three pretty well. Starter for the Lakers but sort of the quietest least thought about of the starter right all the sudden. His voice is is is becoming more powerful than Lebron's. At this moment, because Lebron's been all about. We're going to play right so all of a sudden Lebron can't really say much more than I'm all into. Play right so he's going to have to wait. UNTIL THE PLATFORM RETURNS AS Commissioner says we're dedicating this platform to speaking out on all the racial issues. This country is facing and Lebron will seize the day. We're still waiting for something from him. But you. You brought up. The point is Goodwin yesterday. He already smoked. He said. I'm in right right right. There's nothing you can do so. Felt like yesterday. Who's being attacked a little bit by Kyrie like being backed into a corner? Hey, over here. I'm leading the coalition. We had one hundred players on a conference call on. Friday night and they're all doubtful about. Should we play or should we not will now the the sort of the brains of the operation? The strongest voice is now belonging to Avery, Bradley a teammate of Lebron's and he did make the point again yesterday, the actual act of sitting out not playing in Orlando, does it directly fight systemic racism? Okay a guy, but it does highlight the reality that without black athletes. The NBA would not be what it is today, yes. Nothing would be. You've made that point dozens of times. He's just. I'm not saying he's threatening. He's just spitting out a fact. Right that hey. There's there's a point to be made here. If we all decide, let's not go to Orlando. And we with something that that is dear to all of our hearts, which is watching these gifted players play this game. We all love. It would be a resounding statement that would continue to focus our attention on racial injustice. Would become negative. Would we sort of hold it against? The players would sort of on them maybe maybe, but I get his point right I get his thrust and again we got kyri talking about. Let's take our ball and go home. Let's start another league I just don't know how realistic that is not only been three leagues that tried to go up against the NFL, and all of them end up for bankruptcy court including the. Fail the XFL. You know this. Whatever this? Is Not happening well in the xfl return right. Billy up again. Belly up. You have to understand. They have such a long. Tiger, woods even thought about it for just a second I should. Do they did the best of the golf thought should we'd make our own circuit for here is not happening so but. You GotTa be careful because you've I believe you're fighting for the same things and you starting to splinter and they're starting to look like they're fighting Muslim failed. They don't even really know how to go about this. So why would we just sit back here? Let them figure it out and then when they come up with a plan. You have always warned about this. Yes, right? Yes, and that's what we're seeing I hate I. Hate I. I believe that every. Just go I. Just think we to me, too. Many guys in everybody what we do. We gotta do this and we gotta do this and we gotta do this. What is what are the most important things that you would want to have happen immediately? Okay, what you want to get started on this police brutality injustices that we see okay. It's Kim I get the hiring practices and I want. Want that to what everybody gets a fair opportunity, but I believe that this this injustice issue should be at the forefront I'm not saying put I'm not saying these other building the stowe but I believe the front burner should be that guy, so we have seen. Minneapolis, California's cities say no more choke all right. That was a star. Yes, okay. That's the kind of reform I WANNA see? They said that was. said in the president come as a list of skip every time. They loo-, US daily. They say I felt. My life would threaten. Their their the brain is nothing so everybody. Every tub named the officer descent I, just for pulling always say my life thread. That's why he did it. The got ahead. His name is back. You'll say well. I felt thread. Even though the guy was hey, cook, we're GONNA. Talk about our friend. We'll Walter. Scott was running. He felt threatened. So there's nothing. Ratio Brooks. TASERS. Give is to save face. Somebody breaks into my house. I have the right to use daily pause to protect person and property. Leave my premises, the threat diffuse run outside and shoot him in the back. Okay, got it. You cannot. Cross that threshold you cannot. So I did like it that Avery Bradley, at least had some specifics wants addressed within the NBA right. More black vendors do more business with more black company. Okay love that and love this even more more black representation in management decision making position because they're only four black. GM's with decision with the buck stops here. Power obviously stops upstairs with the owner, but as far as hiring firing. They're only four. Wait a second. there. Only two in the NFL, but it's not like the. NBA is running away with with equality dry. I don't see quality there, so he's saying timeout. We need to start here and address it within our ranks right right right. I love that right so now we have fifty up for that. That's something that we can see over the next if you say okay over the next five five years, we need twenty percent of the vendors in these these arena to be black on. Over the next five years we need to see. You know somewhere between five and eight general managers or something like that that's. That's that's an easy fix. I think the more harder fix. It was the racial and the thing that got because get. What of this country is not hiring environ practice of the blacks in in sports. Is the divide we're race in American injustice that people are seeing on the television in America. I think that's the most important issue. That's the issue at hand now and I believe that we should address now. Okay. I am completely with you, so do take any offense at commissioner silver saying. We need to play basketball because that's what we do. Your Martindale. Care about it. Really forgive me for this, but it rings sort of faintly eerily reminiscent of. We dance for the white people. Love that. We're we're a business yup imitate. We're not entertained we'RE NOT MAKING MONEY? At the end of the day. That's what businesses do. Yeah, and that's why you know. Everybody wanted to get back by me. I got I got you know I say things. If, I'm closed out. I'm not selling anything so I I get it, but if commissioner silver has been great. All this he's allowed. These guys that have boys and he has tried to show the shorter anyone I is there. Collective bargaining agreements that everybody must stay. Put Imagine it's. It's right there in Black Elias. Problem with that. You know you can't. We can't protest during the anthem, but whatever else we meeting how else we can help you. Should that be renegotiated right here on the fly before we get to Orlando now I don't think the gas. Could, but I don't think you know if they don't start playing the by. Get torn up regardless. Okay and then what they thought they were going to be getting in twenty, twenty, one and twenty, and beyond that might take Stanford hit so on the players in Orlando feel compelled to kneel, and they neil. What's going to happen? Nothing no retribution there now I guess they could be fine I. Don't think they will do that I. don't eat because Commissioner Commissioner. Silver have given them a boys and he's allowed them to have platform. I mean step with the t shirts. I can't breathe. Can you imagine I mean? Nfl Find God if you don't. Were teens done so I can't just imagine them I'm I'm sure those guys they Hawkins for. CLEVELAND WAR CERT. Yeah, they had Tamir rice and have somebody players. He probably got fired for that NFL. Don't like you to wear anything but team affiliated stuff. I can't breathe and he ever been thinking about. Getting the WNBA all had that. All of them got hood is now. Yeah, so he's been very. Ask Commissioners I think he's done the best with his players and allowing them to have both talk about issues. That's concerning to them in their community. So they have a week now the players due to declare themselves in or out right in Orlando. What's your gut feeling on? What percent of players are will be all end in one more week? I'm eighty five ninety. Just, my gut, and maybe my head, speaking more than my heart. I think it'll be ninety. Plus in the end with voices heard and a lot of things on the table that we are going to continue to speak out when we get to Orlando, skill, you and I was just checking and his instead of five hundred workers that were tested Orlando Airport. Two hundred, sixty tested positive for Kobe, so they said now all the players are flying into the flying all the players in charter, but you could fly to different airport and get come to the bubble. You don't have to fly there because. Bob To fifty five, under skip. Fifty percent. Airy, the hardest thing is Kip is getting the guys once you get there. I believe you'll be safe, but getting there. And coming having to come in contact with people. So, I think that's why they're going to get you there. You'll be corn team for fourteen days and then we'll start. You know what we need to do, but both guys make very compelling points. I just don't want this thing to start getting splintered and this guy. Come up with an idea that got the idea that all of a sudden we got fifty five ideas and nobody ideal. Get hurt.

Amys Son Got In Trouble + Eddie's Coronavirus News + Bobbys Mailbag: Neighbors Nanny Flirting With Husband

"The. Bobby bones post show pre show. There's a story about a guy. Who kept three balloons in the air for over an hour and it's now a Guinness record so thinking about that. He rented at a gym. If I remember correctly store here. And if you hit balloons out, and he kept all three of them up for one hour, twelve minutes and fifty seconds. Does that sound like a record? That will be heartbreak. So To me. Like twenty four hours seems like it'd be tough. Maybe you try it. I don't care enough to try it. Try To lunchbox an IED. An Idaho man with a talent for breaking Guinness World Records kept three balloons in the air for one hour, twelve minutes and fifty seconds. Yeah, I mean about it. Michael me. Ask you this because you want to solve the guy to do when they hit it in the air. Is You have to blow him in the air or can you hit them? Is The keep them up? Yeah, hit him, so he can touch them. Yeah, like boom boom boom. Not. Keep them up. David Rush was broken more than one hundred and fifty Guinness records to promote stem education said he's security. Use of an empty jumpers attempt to take the record for the longest duration to keep three balloons in the air. This is like a record is tough. I think three is sounds difficult to me. But you can juggle I can't. Ray when you hear this, what do you think? Yeah I'm watching right now. Ends up becoming one heck of an endurance competition. It's more than the juggling. You're running. It's. Back and forth, it's possible I could do to three is what makes it really difficult? As he like Oh crap! Oh, crap, graph agile at the beginning very calm, and then he's next thing you know he's. It's just like a basketball. Move every second. Could you do it for one hour and thirteen minutes two of them? Yes, but. No one cares with them. I. Give it a shot. It's terrible. If I do, it's only a minute. To let down. Because I want you to touch, it's done slow. But, he's doing his feet hands everything. He really hasn't had a dive yet. I'm imagining for me to do it. There's GonNa be a lot of that, but if you dive once, you're not gonNA be able to get back up and find the other ones that. They're balloons. Though you got more time, it's not like it's coming down that fast gravity stuff like that. Good, is this something we'd want to try? And get going with. Me I would have ray and lunchbox both tried at the same time. He's just as a kid video now, I think we can totally do this, but the thing is I think that'd be so wild with their balloons cross into each other. Even if we put them on different sides of the gym like I think eventually they would just run each other and blow it all. We have space here I'm looking at the building. He used a very similar lobby here in the building that we can make this happen. I think you need a bigger spot. Better spot than the lobby. There's chairs and desks. They come up much excuses here while you can do it. I'll do it in a gym. I just need you know you. Jim Right now. I think you can do it. Here are performance area, or we just go outside and the garage to do because I need a big ceiling because I got to hit up hot, that's. Turn if you hit the hit the ceiling, it's coming down. Quick hitting hitting. He's stupid six well. He hit the record house these stupid, because he. What about outside I guess wind and Rolls! That squirrels squirrels are going to give away for sure. Okay. Well, think about that. You can bring me a better idea. I would be up for trying this. Okay. All right I'll come up with a solution how we can do it here in our building or somewhere is not going to work in our building. CanNot think our roof about up where the computers are the sales or whatever's up? The best that. I don't think I don't think the building is that he doesn't move around all that much. Yeah now. So here's the thing we could do in the lobby because it can hit the windows and stuff like that. You just need an enclosed room. He doesn't care. You can bounce it off. Stuff was drilling windows'. Just as long as it doesn't touch the floor, the new now looking at the. Video this guy just in an empty Jim in the middle. He doesn't jump around. This must be where he practices because this is David Rauch or whatever. Can get him on the phone. I talked to does. Here are the ten most prized possessions that people have number ten TV. You, love your. TV Yeah you do. I'm indifferent. I mean I guess my computer probably more so than my TV, but Oh man, I think of like my daughter. She loves TV and number nine child's memory box.

You can't do alive things though okay. I can't put my door I put my dog on here. number five family heirloom. Yeah, love that. Very close to me I have none. What do you have like? A lot of stuff. I inherited from my mom. Most of my family heirlooms, and then I look will. That's a weird way to say this, but I know of some stuff from my dad that I would like. To have. I look forward to. That came that came out. That about me though to. Get what would you leave this to me? I will. Leave. Made, those jokes, that's not you're. Not Eddie No. No, I'm just saying. There's this like desk. Thing that my dad had the belong to my grandma. Well. Sorry, it's not the first time the Lawson thing to my sister. Going to find the diamond, my mom's now that it matters, but my mom had her wedding ring from my dad, and they were divorced for years and years and years, but she split up, she took she removed the diamond from the gold band, and gave me the band of my sister. The diamond wow. Woh Gay men. Still Fine, I mean just. It's one of those things where you got to get rid of stuff and you have siblings. You have to take whatever. I don't care. Either way can hear you don't care about. Keep talking yourself right I really don't it's not. It's not a big deal engagement ring of four. Does that ended up being your wedding ring engagement ring is the diamond most of the time. And then the wedding band is just band detaches to the ring. Yeah, they're like like. This is my band and then I have a diamond also, but oh, it's two different. Most of the time piece of jewelry is three wedding rings to. Is the wedding more the engagement ring when it comes to the rings. The engagement ring normally has the diamond, but some people don't have that so probably the wedding ring and that's the one that signifies 'cause. I mean a man could have a wedding ring to man typically doesn't happen. Engage Mary family photos at one. That's my legacy boxes and Morton. Family photos, they can digitize true. We have a code for listeners. LEGACYBOX DOT com slash bones. Is that what it is? Bones? Yep, sometimes are codes are like slash, bobby slash bobby B., slash bobby bones. Consistently, but you're sure it's legacybox dot com sure because our friend. Adelaide! Just texted me asking for it. Just like heard you and bobby talking about this she wanted to make. Turns pictures into digital so I just gave her the code what it does to they send you a box. And then all the old pictures, even old movies, or what sucks is now. Old Movies are considered vhs tapes usually I think moves like black and white, but they do film I know. It's like old movies. VHS tapes home-video all that and make it digital, and you can watch it on your phone. Computer DVD's whatever can posted instagram. Obviously, that's why I'm saying. All of that I know. Maybe, Oh, I can put on instagram. Okay, legacybox dot com slash bones. Sure Yeah, okay. and then let me end on this because I've been. Wanting to watch Hamilton on Disney. Plus I saw it live. I was calling up to see alive, and I mean that it's. One of my agents when I was up in New York that she was like we got your ticket. I would never gone gone to Hamilton. I kinda like I'm not paying for. That went thought. It was crazy I didn't know that they were. There was no talking when I walked in there. I, there's no talking. It's all from the start hip hop. Like they're telling all of Alexandra hamlet story through HIP HOP And I was like what the so the first quarter of it I'm just like what's happening. What are they going to stop talking it film in as long as you know, they never talk. I think it will blow your mind second half I was like. Wow, this is crazy, but now it's on Disney plus over two and a half hours I. don't know if I can commit to that yet. You've seen it. Yeah, is it good? I think it's really good like only knew about it from what you said about it. And that does take a little bit of getting used to, but it can maintain the whole way and I I watched it all the way through I wonder if watching it on closed, caption would be good I've heard from people that saw it. On Broadway and then they watched the closed caption. Disney plus and they were like. I can't believe how much I missed like they thought they learned a lot on Broadway and retained a lot and loved it. They'd even seen it multiple times, and then when they saw closed caption, they realized how many things they were missing because the rapping so fast. Yes I think I might do that. Did you do that? No, I'm probably going to be watch it though I felt like there was stuff. I miss two and a half hours. It was it worth it. It's worth it. What are you give it? Give it a four point five out of five. Oh can't wait. A movie. Next week. Is it a movie? Yeah, I considered a movie, So yeah, this episode I'm talking about what else you talking about I'm talking about underrated Disney songs for movies. What's a what's under? Though so like the a bunch of the suffer. Tarzan was underrated. Phil Collins. Did lots of great one you'll be. A bunch on that, and then there's one that billy. Joel did for movie called Oliver and company never live a really good thought that was like a clothing store. No, is this this one? Billy Joel. Movie Mike's Movie podcast. For. Two and a half hours a lot to commit to. We'll look. Do Movies Kayla to find something to watch, and if it's over an hour. Five or like I, don't know if I can do it. or we'll split up into two days like Hollywood. We gotta get back to making movies that are like ninety minutes. Because this is crap I. Don't want to sit there for three hours and watch a movie or do make into parts, because if I see a long two hour and forty minutes I'm not going to watch it. How good it is! Do you feel that way I. Mean I like the hour and a half movies I've seen a couple of good ones that are our and have. Everything's pretty much two ten do one forty five and feel pretty comfortable about hopping into, but if you ask me to commit to an hour straight right there, it gives me anxiety even if I have to hours to commit.

I didn't feel like the story was as intricate as the first one where you're like. What? Ooh, he did it. was kind of and it's still an unsolved case. Sure it's unsolved. Can you imagine if that was your mom or your family member in like gone still had no idea who in the world did that. I really liked the series. There's only six episodes total. and. We're about to get into one that goes. Don't don't spoil it. The of all the way. Seeing the third one third by some kind of crazy in France, I don't know all it said. Was this family that happens and it's a mystery if I get another hormone. All in branch and you have to read the subtitles I n normally don't like that, but like I mentioned yesterday I watch. In you just forget after a while I agree. We're halfway through it I once. I had to take a break to do watching stuff with my kids, and they can't watch unsolved mysteries too scary for them. Which is great for me? Yeah! I, need a pallet cleanser every time so last night I just played NBA two K. after I finished unsolved mysteries for less time, but we're GONNA. Finish that and then. You know we're watching. Dave a little bit on fx you ever watched that about little dicky rapper. WHO probably won't be for you. It's a little too gritty. Yeah, but watching that. curb your enthusiasm, a little bit idiot abroad a little bit, but we really don't have show that we've been just obsessed with in the past.

There was no maximum. Yes, so I don't know. Does. It talk about her in the series. Yes, okay, she's a huge part. I don't know her story from the series, but now she's in jail and i. they got her, and then they were like well. We can't let her have real close or sheets because she'll try to kill herself. And now they're trying to protect it from assassins, so they're moving all the time and not telling people were, but eventually someone's GonNa tell somebody because they're high connected and I haven't even seen the series, but obviously I. Because you've seen pictures of Jeffrey Epstein with Donald Trump Bill Clinton. Oh tons of powerful people and. I don't know anything about it as much as I need to now, but when you connected folks at high. They have ways to get in and. You know who else was on one of the heat. He took this international flight somewhere. He had the site private plane I can't remember what they would call it, but the plane had a nickname bill. Clinton's on the flight and Kevin Spacey. And somebody else I can't remember, but like those. To Africa and doing some stuff with like the Clinton Foundation and one of the girls on the flight was one of his girls being trafficked, but like some. It's just weird to me that so many these people were around them, but yet these people had no idea that this is like young girls. That like didn't want to be there. Do you know what I mean? Get some bizarre to me. Yes, why? y'All should either Elizabeth by castor or watching comeback I'm listening to the president podcast. I'm still rocking this thing. Learn about the president's.

Yeah, guys, nuts like yes, dudes drink. Whitelaw's I got a fridge full of them right now, so Susan Raimondo will keep chugging those claws. And then you want to say right. Right back to them. All the way baby, there's nothing better than a twelve pack of clause. Ray was getting hated on. A woman's drink. Here's Alison in Idaho. where the silly Matiz, pregnant went I love. In trouble, so wanted to know about isn't if we could bring a back and I just wanted to say, thank you do and she got me through my twenty one hours of labor. Just love you guys and. Twenty one hours of labor. Labor for almost a day. spilling the tea. We did that for a season where we would come on. And it spilled the to you about something happening someone's personal life I think he got us all much trouble with each other's significant others whenever we win. I don't know if you have any t on spill on me. Let me know. Okay, do you? Think all right. Here's one more brandon from Somerset. Kentucky Order Stereo. People told me that I need to go into the radio business or Have, the boys for doing voiceovers just wanted to know how. How does a person go about? Getting started at that field. Appreciate it. Why wouldn't say radio radio is not about having a good voice anymore I don't have a good voice radios. Bad. Yeah, something to say, are you compelling? Can you make people care about an idea or a person? So No, a voice almost has nothing to do with radio. These days you could try voice over stuff I'd have no business I. Know I wish I knew to because I'm always wanted to be the voice of fish. It's an interesting animated. I'm auditioned for voice stuff for for like cartoons. No Hey it's something comes available. Hala always asked me to be the redneck person like hey, would you do voice right redneck series? And so they're not gonna be like Hey y'all. Go. You know that kind of stuff never get. Thank you for the call. You can always call us eight, seven, seven, seventy, seven, bobby, let's get going. What's up with your son? He just had this like virtual reading tutoring thing and I guess he got frustrated during it, and said what the and then that's it so then I got a note about it that he did. They were kind of concerned with his attitude and saying what the. And where he would have gone anything like that, and the ooh. Is that bad? 'cause I say what the to my kids all the time but I don't I. Don't finish it with anything I. Think most recently like an example would be. he said he was picked up stuff in his room, and and made his bed, and I walked in, and stuff was just clearly thrown onto his bed, not really made and I. Walk in, and he's like see and I'm like what the? Like I say that you know or. They act up. I say seriously guys like what the and I just do that. And so now I guess he. He mimicked me I think the real trouble comes into the word that comes after the riot I don't say anything. But if he said what the heck would you care now if he said what the crap would you care a little bit more? But if he said what the people? Are Different levels of who we don't even I. don't even say anything after I just say. What the would you tell the teacher? I just said I just said Oh. I'm sorry he got that for me. Like I, we don't say anything after we just say what the. I she I. Don't think it was like a major concerns. You need to know and be aware that he was had this. Luke Perry. Did you have a conversation with him to stop saying that or you like? It's okay to say that. Oh, I haven't really addressed it yet. It's all new I was going to bring it to you. Guys in see like my bad for saying that like as a mom. I would say no. You said worse to me yeah different different style. Me To Kelly crab. Well, there was my I had like two different moms before my mom before we started going to church, and then my mom after she changed a lot. She's the customer a lot. Pre. Finding Jesus. Cursed on all the time, even after Jesus. I. Know I'm not saying. That's like bad. I mean I. Remember One time I missed. The bus and my mom slammed the dishwasher and said Corolla at word I can't say wagons, and I never will forget it. It was effective. I don't think I missed the bus after that. But again that was pre Jesus. I think you tell your son. He shouldn't stay that to his teacher. Oh right and I. Don't think he was saying that hurling. He just was what the. I'll just have a talk. That I'm sorry. Buddy I mean, but that's on me like I. Need to not react that way to them, but that's just sometimes. My frustration comes out with that. Maybe that's just an in the house word. Like. We can only say what the in the House. Yeah, it's okay for you to say are cool thing we get to do because. Actually, now he's GonNa accidentally say it and I'm. GonNa be like you know you're only supposed to say that home. Yes, but that's okay. Yeah, all right Jordan Davis singles. You up by the way go to our facebook page. Let us know what you think about the what the what the again nothing. There's no word after it. No nothing but it's how I react to them when I'm frustrated. There's a flight from Seattle to Chicago Nanna. Turn the flight around you. They get attornal playing around. Somebody got in trouble. Because thinking about much trouble as a kid, you had to get into to get the car turn around. If you turn on a whole plane around. This. Guy Got up and threatened to kill everybody on the plane. Oh, my! This so I'm going to play a clip and he gets up and he threatened to kill everyone here the audio here. Everybody accepted. By date. So scary was quickly subdued by the flight crew and two passengers got involved to a law enforcement officer who was flying on the aircraft. The Seattle Times posted a video of the incident. Here's the thing though he was wearing a mask, so come on I. Get this guy. See Yeah I mean I. Get that, but then it's like you want to see like the insanity part of it, but then he's also rational or sane enough to know. Oh, are we worrying mouse right now? Or maybe he was just told. You can't get on the plane unless you wear a mask. Yeah, because that's the rule now. No, but then I'm thinking. If you're being irrational, you would throw a fit about that. The flight returned safely to SEATAC where additional law enforcement personnel were standing to take the passenger custody. I'd be worried if I were one of these passengers that I was gonNA. Get Corona from some idiot doing this. Because you know two passengers. Dead jump into action, and get close, yeah! and. It's always that moment to where if somebody's doing some crap on an airplane? Where you got to make that decision, do I jump into action. It's a big. That's a big commitment man. Big Commitment when someone is yelling at the one, because mostly, it'd be like surely someone's going to do something. Because of you do it and either you lose the fight or be. They're not. They're not doing what you thought they were doing refused I. Don't know. That's a big commitment. That's so scary like I. Don't know. How premeditated is that? I WANNA know I wanNA ask him like. Did you plan on screaming that? When you go out on the plane or did you like just? Yeah and By, the way their plans anymore forgot about that. I thought you could take them. Ray. Didn't you guys get your taken up from you? You Do? Yeah, you got to do it secretly but your. Airports Sacred! Okay okay! Yeah so I. Don't know I just wonder how when when he snapped into the episode. Anita? No, we need an update. What's the most dramatic thing you've ever had happened to you on an airplane? I know that I've had weird things the throwing up right in Frienemie. Up plane hit turbulence so hard that. The ceiling! Yeah, we were sitting there dry fly into Austin and we're having some drinks and his Ray Eddie and myself, and it was kind of bumpy and goes Ha. We're going down. We're going down and thirty seconds later. BUB Boom and we dropped a thousand feet. Everybody's drinks hit the ceiling and the beverage cart went all over the plane. And it was so scary mine would be when the landing gear wouldn't come down and the pilot comes out of the front and has to unhinged the walkway. In climb down there and hand crank the wheel down. Scary. He's like we're all good well. Known anything over here and he's cranking down the wheel because it wouldn't go through whatever the button was. and. I'm like. As, not good we're not gonNA make. It out. I never had a weird person though. That there was a woman doing yoga once in the island. It was freaking out. Some. But she was just doing yoga. We have that awkward couple. Not Too long ago and neighbor like awkwardly. Fighting in front of everybody knows really offered. I was like we're or we're in an airplane. Oven skies like stop fighting divert to different airport once because fog. Because, they were like we can't land airport. We gotta go somewhere else and everybody started screaming at the pilot like he wants to land in a different airport. The pilots if they were like you know what on board I don't.

Nashville. Number two thirty seconds skinny congratulations to Morgan Wallin. He announced on social media that he's now. A DAD to a baby boy named Indi Walker for CNA backes Luke, Bryan and Darius.

For the good news swick bobby. Appear of ten year old best friends in Massachusetts have been busy in the kitchen the last few months, the not cooking up snacks for themselves Daniel. A Max have been creating perfect homemade dog treats baking them and deliver them to dog parents nearby. They started doing it as a way to keep busy for now the running a thriving small business and abused their profits to help others they split. The money comes in with Daniel Max and the Milton Food Pantry. Pantry getting thirty percent. The other ten percent goes to buy supplies so far. They've made hundreds of dollars of donations to the food pantry. They said listen they just like dogs and we're doing for fine, but then they found a way to give back, and some people aren't able to get out and get dog food or treats because of Covid, and they found a lot of people that can use dog snack all the way through ten. Isn't that crazy? Elegant. These kids shout to Daniel, Max. They could be keeping all that money themselves to not, but I hope that story was cool. Wanted to share it with you, guys. That's what it's all about. That was telling me something good. Show, down. This story comes from Oregon police were trying to pull over randy. Lee, but it's a stolen vehicle. He's like I'm out of here. He starts trying to flee goes a few miles and another car season fleeing says here all stop them pulls their car out in front and boom. They wreck, so he gets arrested. They run the license plate. The other car stolen to girl driving. It got arrested I saw someone in a stolen car at the other person driving a stolen car. What are the odds? Why would you do either? All idiot yeah. Probably somewhere off though. Because they're like on ceiling car I guess. Is Your bonehead story of the day. What's the article you were talking about the American dream well, it was talking about whether about whether or not. People believe in it or not, so typically people think of the American dream, and they think it's hard work sacrifice, taking risks rather than by chance, but so they were seeing where people fell. Do you think it's just luck by chance or people? Really work for it and a poll found that fifty percent of us. Believe that the American dream is attainable and. And that. It's due to hard work and stuff the other half. Don't think it is yeah, it's not attainable. It's like not even a thing it's like if you get the American dream great good for you, but it's not a thing well. I separate first of all. There are people that are born into privilege and don't have to sacrifice to get right I. Think I'll just use me as an example I think I am the example of what you can do. I if you really want to chase the American dream, I believe in the American dream very much so I think. It's tougher for others for sure I. Think it was tough. Real tough for me I. think it's probably tougher for other folks to than even West for me. You know with my background. I grew up very poor at a mom who was a drug addict and a dad who left when I was five or six years old, and it wasn't easy, but the great thing about it is all of those skills you learn in the struggle. They then later in life. You're just you have so many weapons that that you've developed you know at times I look back and go especially now. I don't resent. What happened to me anymore? Because it has prepared me for what I'm doing now, if that makes sense, I think I wouldn't be in a position now to do this show on a national level or to chase some of my other dreams. If I hadn't gone through that, I also wouldn't have what is the strongest. Suit that I have it which is empathy because everybody can feel sorry for folks, but actually understand what someone else is going through. Like for me, I consider that my biggest asset because I know what it's like to be. Inside of the struggle and I know what it's like to come out of the struggle, and I know what it's like to be told. Hey, you probably aren't going to be able to do this because of where you come from. In the resources that you don't have but I do believe the American dream. So much so. that. You know I talked to kids a lot about it and. Everybody wants something easy, but it is hard work it is risks it is failing and I think people don't WanNa fail. Now I think it's embarrassing to fail. I think no one wants to share. That something didn't work out. I think that's a big part of it. and it's not. You know. If, you're going to get up and do it again. It's when you get up and do it again, but I do believe in it because I. I've seen it happen in my life with me. And I'm not extremely talented. I'm not someone who has a great gift of it. I'm not a good talker. And I have the biggest country morning show in the history of country. Music I'm not a good talker. They don't think someone would hear me speaking go. That's the guy. At least how I phrase words talk, I talked too fast. I- i- jumble my words sometimes I don't say as articulate as I'd like. But I don't think that's what got me here so I'm a big proponent of the American dream I'm in that fifty percent that says yes, if you want it bad enough I don't care what it is, you can get it. And they're like well. What if you're four foot to and you? WanNa Dunk. Okay well. You can get a trampoline. Live isn't always about doing things exactly that other people have done it. It's also about finding ways finding other paths taking other paths to do it. So yeah. My answer's yes I believe in it. Is that what you're asking? Yeah, I, mean and you're an example. For me of the American dream, so I feel like I haven't had near the challenges. You have so I. Think for me. Certain things were. Set Out I had my appearance weren't together. They were divorced but I. My dad was always very supportive like we didn't ever want for anything and he made sure that I went to college in that I I almost wish sometimes that my parents had actually. Allowed me to struggle a little more, so I would have learned some stuff early on that I've kind of had to just teach myself. I think to. We get confused the American dream of money. American lives up money the American dream is doing whatever fills you. You know if it's. Being the best the T- teacher, you could possibly be to affect the most people if it's you know for me. I wanted to do radio and TV on a level that I could talk to millions of people every day. You know it's it's different for everyone if it's being a mom, if it's being just a fantastic like the American dream is so the fact that we have the ability to do with wine, and for some people, it's harder freely. Some people you're deeper in a hole. Some people you're starting down so much deeper than other folks have to start, but when I mean tween uh-huh. Different, but this is why I'm lucky. This wild Sam luckier than you although I went through a lot of crap. I am so strong now. Because of all the crap that I had to go through a lot of our listeners are going through this. I think most of our listeners will come privilege. You're so strong from what you've had to learn how to do out of necessity that once you kind of get to that even mark. That you're ready to go. You just got to get to that spot. You do have to take risks you have to fail. You do have to learn from those failures and then get up and do it again. It's the socks and that's the thing I felt on massive ages before. So American dream exists. I'm to tell you the American, dream exists alive and well. I don't know if it's well I. Don't know if it's ever been well alive. It's harder for some folks, but once you get back to. Even it's easier for you. Then you know if there's if there's zero point in life where everyone's on the same spot because we're not, but if there's a zero point they'll lower. You are the harder you have to work two zero. The stronger you are, once you get there I think it's good for people to hear. You say that you're not resentful of your anymore. Yeah I know. That you've come out of that and that because there there might be somebody listening that the does have resentment for whatever they had to go through, but you can. It's up to you how you want to navigate that everybody's been through stuff. Like how do you? How do you WANNA use that in your life to make better if you're listening to my voice right now? I'm here to tell you whatever you WANNA. Do you can do? It might not be the path that you. May Not. Be The path that you want to take to get there. The you can, you can do it i. have no doubt I should be a statistic and. Not. I refuse to let myself be and so that's all the American. Dream is alive, and well friends hit not well. It's alive. Because you said that. Yeah all right there. We go DA. USA USA. 'cause rated this party because guests called and asked for a twenty meal. What does that? They call the KFC and order. Twenty meals saint time, so think about that. Twenty mils is basically twenty people. Yeah, you have a party with twenty people. Okay I get it now. I was like Woah. What are they doing wrong? Oh, wow to the guy. You can't be gathered. Sixteen Finds Holding Twenty six thousand dollars. People breaching lockdown restrictions. And they used motoring twenty meals to get in that crazy. However the cops, even how do they even know about the order to the person at KFC? Rap for sure. There's Peggy from Puerto Rico. Video. We have a comment about bobby leaving the seat up because we think we caught him in a lie. Supposedly he is Mr. Germaphobe and always puts the feet down before he flushes because of all those particles that God has toothbrush, but now since Caitlin fell into the toilet. We know he's a liar and shouts to Raymundo. 'cause girls also yell. I do put the seat down ninety percent of the time. Perfect no, you're not no, no, no, not at all I don't know that was alive, but I do. Keep the see down I. Remember I. Go boop! Put it down. I don't even know that I left it up. Honestly and honestly I think you've you've even depending on which bathroom you're in. Sometimes the toilet is nowhere near where your toothbrushes, so you may not be doing that. I'd only got lied. I think I forgot one day same but I always keep the lid down. I told her that you said that you've Pete on the lid before, and she was like what does she do? She hasn't done that awful. I thought you were going to tell her. Oh Yeah I've done that. How does she feel? The LID was sitting on I say. I, said apparently she pees before she hits the lid in she goes. Wait till she she's young, you know. You hit a certain point mortgage on the well then I don't know, but I mean also to with age or something happens where you just you just start getting faster than you planned. Peg in Puerto Rico, thank you for your call. You can always call us. Eight, seven, seven, seventy seven bobby I know it's disappointing. But I'm not perfect when you are pricked, do you believe? Premie I believe was read. House. Pile of stories to Disneyworld reopened last week and they have a new policy. If you want a photo of yourself, writing a ride in, you're not wearing a mask. They're not selling it to you, so it's like part of their plan of enforcing people to wear masks. People do now these photo you. There's the end of the ride and you go, and you see all the photos and you can buy them. They put them up and their numbers over them, and you gotta take number thirty two because I'm in it, but what people are doing now they take their phones out real quick, and they take a picture of the picture, and then they have it. kind of a slick but dirty move I now like I'm sure that they're going to come up with a way to Lautenberg. Put something across it to where if you take it? It's not going to be special. I don't know that I want to buy a photo of me in a mask on a ride because. yes, but I was watching something on the news of a amusement park I don't know if is in Japan or somewhere, but the they were encouraging people to please have fun on the rides where your mask and screaming your heart. Is this screen with your mouth closed in your heart like I. Don't know, but that's. That's part of their plan of trying to give people to wear masks at the amusement park. I don't think that many people want to buy a picture anyway, but good for them for trying something I saw. They're having these relaxations zones at the Disney parks where you can like. Go to the certain area and remove your mask and relaxed little like who knows his relaxing there. That doesn't have to beat the purpose unless you're like alone in a tube that gets scrubbed every time. There's an I don't know, but that's what it's called. If you're a Disney and you see a relaxation zone, you can take your mask off. So Randy houser doesn't think it's fair that people wearing masks compact tightly in airplanes. Concert halls are sitting empty. He posted a comparison of photos online, and then he said I. I have questions anybody else see a problem Jason? aldean replied yeah I mean he used a bad word, but yeah he clearly feels the same way as out as randy. Houser in the Miranda. Lambert said same thing also used sort of a bad word so you. Some people are pretty passionate about this listen. I would love live music to come back. The only way to get live music back is wear masks friends. I think if they could separate everybody like they do on on an airplane now were there no middle seats and people are wearing masks I think you would see more people being able to do shows well. Yeah, if they would really going to. They're not doing that. The middle seat thing I'm talking about Here's the thing, too. About a theater theater costs so much to run if you only sell a quarter of the tickets because I when I would tour. If you only a quarter of the tickets they lose money. It's not like all ticket. Money is is profit. So it takes a lot of money to get show going if you're not selling enough tickets and you gotta remember, you gotTa. Pay Everybody working there you got to pay. The ban got to pay the guarantee for the artists which ain't cheap I would think like a huge way for venues to make money would be on alcohol, and then a fee which I mean, people can drink, but then they have to lift up their mask and don't forget to. You have billion dollar companies airlines that have. To the government going, we need to go. because I don't think flying on an airplane is probably the safest thing either no, but and also to some people I think lawyer responsible for him to tweet that by the way new. Yeah I do because he has a point. But the point is our system is broken. Airlines are getting billions of dollars personal. Get themselves out of trouble while schools aren't everyone's like. Should we send kids back to school and I say yes, but we need to build the infrastructure to keep them safe, and they're not getting funded, so we'll have a bunch of schools that aren't getting the money. While Airlines are getting billions of dollars to keep themselves back in business, because they have folks that can can actually speak to people to make decisions. So it's, it's and oranges, I do think it's irresponsible. Brainy Hauser tweet. This I also think that. He's right. Right. Angry. So. He's not right and that they should have concerts now. Because airplane, right? You're right with the whole. It's apples norms. Yes, it's two different things when you connected to the government. That's why it's all about people who have privilege and who don't. If you know somebody, you're rich, you can make things happen in if you don't you can't and airlines are getting billions of dollars because of that. And by the way they're selling the middle seat. Well I. Think now they're about you're about to see that. No one at all. Yes, they have. No sign of flight that was like totally packed. I couldn't even believe it so I mean they need to stop selling middle, but they're not well. We need to have all convertible airplanes, so would they? Corona can go out of the top of the airplanes. Yeah. That's my pile. Was Amy's pile of stories. It's time for the good news. So the Baylock family from Tennessee they are heroes down in Panama beach because they were just hanging out as a family having some fun in the sun when they look over and see someone struggling to swim turns out the whole group of people that were in need and the ocean, so her family they ran out and they ended up rescuing six people from the ocean that we're drowning. Dealing both capsized or something I. Don't know the rest of. The family, the rescuers they say that they were in the right place at the right time. And then it's a reminder that even in these strange times people are still looking out for one another. What's crazy as they? All six jumped in to save people and they all got out and nobody was hurt. Yeah. That's wild man. Good story though that's what it's all about. That was telling me something good. Right. Let's hear from Sunny in Chicago morning studio. Thanks for joining me on the presidential from one Quiz Bowl Captain High School Quiz Bowl captain to another by guys. Thank you very much for the call first of all. Yes, I love the PODCAST presidential. It is extremely nerdy and I believe now. Let me see what President I'm wondering these I listened to some more last night while I was planned to K-. I am listening to John Tyler. Because he took over. Whenever is that Harrison died after thirty days in office, first president ever have to jump in first accidental President over to amy with the morning. Corny now. Morning, Corny, which state has the most pirates. Are Console. That's it are. What is the investigative Corny, but I was just thinking about it I'm going to Arkansas this weekend i. Get there. I'm from Arkansas. I plan to eventually be back in Arkansas. If you run for governor, you should tell that from the stage win. People over what does I? What if on my gubernatorial inauguration? I, have everybody dresses the pirate? Yeah, it's like the theme are everytime good. We saw. Okay. That's the joke. That was. Morning Gorny after we finish the show Friday were driving back over. I gotta find a place over there. Because I'm going to run if I'm going to run I, have to have a place I. Don't have to legally live there yet. Because I've already lived there, my whole life but I gotta have a place to be there a lot more. So heads up everybody. Awesome blessed me here. Are you nervous about that yet or no? No I'm I'm accepting of it so I'm not nervous I. Guess I'm nervous for you to go through something like that because I. Think it's pretty grueling. You know putting yourself out there. Politics is just. So I get nervous for you in that sense, but no. Going on to do amazing things like that then I'm okay with if whatever happens with us. It's a bummer, but you can go and help people. My goal has always been to climb to the top of the mountain so I can reach back down to pull up with me. That's it. That's been my goal. I mean I can't hold you back from that. What am I don't go help. People say here new the radio show. Someone asks me on my instagram story. What would I do if I were to first thing that I would do that was like Try to get a living wage in Arkansas like people are working. Fifty hours a week and can't even pay rent and buy groceries. That would be priority number one because we were that family that couldn't afford it and we had to do food stamps and welfare that so that would be the first thing, but we'll see. Maybe it doesn't happen, but I gotta be ready. Just in case it does yeah. We gotTA figure out we're going to do to be ready. This is amy branch. All right. So Mike D. who writes basically all of our games here on the show He was out with his girlfriend yesterday, yeah. We take a hike. What happened? We were leaving and we walk by this family and they were trying to take a family photo, and they couldn't get each other in the Selfie, so they asked if I would take a picture for them. And I felt weird about it because I don't want to touch the road. So was like I'd rather not look at me. Kind of weird and I just walked away. What do you think I mean? I think that they have to understand. I mean we're dealing gonNA pandemic right now. I think it's Ok to say sorry. I can take your picture so I think it's okay for you to say that I. Think you should have said Hey. I'd rather not. I just don't WanNa. Touch anybody's phone right now. Taking precautions. You didn't do that right? I was like I. Go Go and so they. Looked at me weird I was like I I just didn't want to phone and I didn't want to get close to them I think all that's fair. I probably would've said Hey. Rather not now because you look like a fine family. I just want to touch anybody's phone right now. Jim Mask on yeah, today. What would you have done you said yesterday. Would you have done because I probably would have though I know you're fine to say that you're absolutely in your. That's totally cool. I think I probably would have. Though probably would yell. Wash my hands. Sanitized We shouldn't we shouldn't. Let's just not put people in that position right now so like I. Get it trying to take a family photo, but we. The frigging picture they can fit each other people. That's you can fit for people in a photo. Could. Six. The rise of Selfie stick again. Yeah, you're fine. I know like a jerk, yeah! I think if you would just said Hey I'd rather not with cove it. You get it right. Because all do that if you want to shake hands, because still people reach their heads like Oh, not for me. Nine Corona land make a little joke, so I think as long as you say while you're fine, okay, would you have done a lunch breaks? No chance I would I didn't hear him. Walking. I think I would have said yes. I'll take it and then what I'll do. If I touch something, I'll keep my hands away from my face the whole time and then wash them. Then I do it and I say no and someone's on my instagram. There's a blog about how bowe bones dixie such a cool I won't take picture. True I don't want that to happen with that, but then you can't. You can't be. Bobby. Bones just contracted krona virus. Saw No. Where your mask just as a reminder where your mask where your mask where your masks. So this woman was having to see her husband through the Nursing Home Window. Much like you have to see your. Dad threw his assisted living window. Yeah, get touch anyone that's in because you're older and you get covert. Odds aren't good. Yeah, it. It's definitely not good, the older you are. So I I saw this story. Where this woman takes a job as a dishwasher in a nursing home. Just so she could see your husband own. Sweden into this for one hundred and fourteen days. This was as close as Mary Daniel and her husband Steve could get. Then she learned the nursing home needed a dishwasher in this washer. This whatever you got available I'll take. What was that moment like? When you see him in person I knocked on his door I mean obviously he's not expecting may end. Mary was the first thing he said and came over and gave me. We have just had a really great hug. We both started crying. Isn't that crazy. Says his wife. Okay, so he lives in a nursing home, but she doesn't right okay. Yeah, because he has early early dementia. So but Yes she was going to see them. Stop seeing them. That's so special the club she continues to get tested for covet and has to work hard, but she shows up with a smile and a message for her husband. He is deeply loved, and that he will never be alone, and that's the best gift that I can give him for the rest of his life. Crazy, yeah, would you think about doing that to go see your dead? Yeah, if I had the way awaited if I didn't have a job and I have the time, because then you have to be really careful. I wasn't around. Other people then yeah I would try to do that. My Dad would love it in fact if he here's the stories and we like what's up where you're trying to get a job. Yeah. What's the deal was being able to see him well. They're starting outdoor visits, but like I can't take the kids only to adults can visit him at a time, so it'd be like me alone or me and my husband and we have to still social distance, but we'll be able to be outside with him and then. It's only three days a week like in the middle of the work week in the middle of the work day. I'm kind of confused. What about some people who have legit work hours? Were morning show, so I can make it there before they shut it down, but I just feel bad for people trying to visit loved ones that can't make it in the eleven to four window. Just seems I guess they're probably learning as they learn, they'll expand the hours, but I'm just thankful for it my pumped. Can Your Kids Sam no not outside? Only through the window? I was GONNA.

My husband and I are still working from home. He's around a lot more. It's great. He takes kids out everyday pleasures. Them even plays with other neighborhood kids that come down the street to play with us, but that said one of our neighbors has a full time nanny who's been with them since the fall, she comes with the kids to play with our kids all the time. It's never been a problem, but I have noticed. This is my husband's been out there with them she. She dressed nicely. She's very flirtatious with the husband. He even jokes about it with me, but I'm starting to lose my patients the other day. Jenner hand through his hair and told them she really likes his haircut. She wants felt as Bicep to admire it. I'm at the point might have a talk with that family because it's really getting to me. Should I talk to them or her directly? What do you think? Signed, Kim. As Funny I. if a woman ever puts her hand through a guy's hair, she's into them. Right squeezes his vice up, yeah yeah. So! It's not about the other family or the nanny. It's about your husband. Yeah, that's exactly what I was gonNA say is start. The conversation should start there, but I mean he can't help if Jesse can. Oh, does he water water mandalay? He can say to her. Hey, you shouldn't do that. My wife would get upset. Like he on comfortable, he can handle that business, okay? My advice to you to have the talk that you just had with us with your husband. Say I know you've been kidding about it, but it really makes me feel uncomfortable. Because sometimes when when I do something I say something in Kaelin doesn't like it. Get Mad at me. She goes. Hey, that really made me feel uncomfortable and I'm like. Oh, I didn't think about it that way. I did it. Look at it from your eyeballs. I look at it as a general thing that happens that way it should. You should react, but I go okay when I see your perspective, I I may not agree with that, but at least I can respect it, so I would say the conversations with your husband, not with the nanny, not with the family. You I agree you start with the husband, and then you see where it goes, and what continues, but I say it starts there. There's no reason to go to the nanny. Yeah, she has no allegiance to anybody. Okay just handle on your house. It's like most problems you can handle it. Close it'll the rest of it go away. The husband say something to her the next time like hey, that really makes me uncomfortable if you touch Do from makes them feel what you have no idea.

Get an three to. It's about enjoying the journey. It's about keeping it real. Your ears interviewing the. It's all about you pay for something online to do. Stop taking shit so seriously. The okay do this. Later This is Connie five show. We. Really Union. And now your host Connie Fife. Hey everyone. It's kind of five and welcome back to the Connie five show and this week. We have a phenomenal guest when I said looking at some of her background. Information I thought boy. This is GONNA be conversation. I know I can be talking about this ours. Ours ours now ours so let me just Jim Right in by introducing our guest. So today we have with us. She's an author. She's a speaker. She's on media personality. She's an entrepreneur shoes coach. And most importantly, she is eight forgiveness experts. To The commune five show Kiana F, Brown. How are you today? I am doing exceptionally well. Thank you for having me. Well really here. Now I know today, the top begin. Discussing forgiveness. And I. Mean I'm sure you know what you name. When I went out searching, because i Stockholm Mike Guess before the coming memory soccer, but been I wanNA know who you are and I wanNA. Know Way you do in the work that you've done so. I went out there. Looking and I took. The new name typed in forgiveness up opera. Okay I have a superstar ratio today. So. So again the the one thing that I really capture me besides that of course was at high you talk about. You know sometime in life that we could be in mental prison mental presents south. And because we don't forgive ourselves. And and that's where I was like. Okay, we talk about this. If you share then again with their listeners. What the sent me! With walk it I. Call it mental incarceration, and this derived from me, actually being in a prison sale hours actually incarcerated for four years of my life to just really really bad choices that I made him alive. Relationships, but it all stemmed from earlier mental incarceration I was incarcerated well before I had actually had physical change, physical cubs, and the physical bars in front of now, and it all stemmed from mom is said the way that I thought a my perception of things, and really it was a relationship with my father. I wanted to have a closer relationship with him. I didn't get that in so I had a pretty much blamed everything that happened in my life on him. I was in a relationships that I shouldn't have been in I started to use drugs alcohol. I was going out to the clubs and just anything in everything. That is the total opposite from what I was h-how. I was raised is what I was doing, but it was all because of a lack of love, and it was my mindset that shifted. Now we think about. When we grow up, right? We are all taught. What love is right? We're taught how to communicate. We're taught to believe what not to believe that as so those are figments of imagination i. like to believe because I. Don't believe that everything we're taught is actual. Facts are true. It enabled me to not live in a mindset of freedom because I had adapted. What Society says apparent is supposed to do. I had a did what society says. A father is supposed to do and dollars in that relationship I learned over over the years that you know. When I was in prison, my father had a drug addiction and so everything that he did not do was a result of the toxins that was inside of him, not allowing him to be the person that he naturally was as though because I had all of those beliefs in those behaviors that person. person host, the do I damn place on him and as a child, you know we necessarily don't know how to truly communicate you know some some of us were hoping than for me at took to childhood obesity the way that I express myself or found some type of relief was the e I felt better when I eight, and so the way out in today's world. The way that I feel it resembles how I look on the outside. You know saying that I'm addicted to food. Right? And people said well how you addicted to food. I said you can't reaction. Alone and Much of it. Not just going through those processes. Realized that you know. The way that my thinking was the way that it developed from youth was I was already locked up and so I thought patterns, the beliefs that we have those things may us can allow for us to be bound in a new physical presence. A mental prisons is me or my right. We meet a learning to forgive really one of the most difficult difficult. Challenges. But we needed to achieve our own healing. Own personal growth is. Out So and what are you talking about? It and everything that you're talking about again while we grow how we grew up. That's what we will to believe because as children. We would believe in the environment around us a when we come to realize that that environment wasn't necessarily healthy for us. many talk about that. You just about discovering you pass. which taps into today into today's truth know how to someone? With that pass, how can they? I I had to do it. How can dave find strength to say? That isn't my normal and I need to move forward in a new way. How how do they find that strange that? First of all they have to be in a position of tiredness. Of continuing to live the same way that you're living tired of continuing to have the same relationships that you're having tired of just existing Enoch arriving because when you don't forgive you, lose all the capability to reach the highest level that you couldn't like A. Beautifully Sad. Did you reach. I mean automatic goosebumps to reach the your own potential and mind because of these things that happen a lot of turnings. A lot of people don't realize what their highest potential as As so once you get. Past that you get to that point where you're tired. You're ultimately at the truth of the situation I we. May Tell the truth to other people wear. Keeping promises of saying that we're GonNa, do these things that have commitments with other people in what we are our worst enemy when it comes to committing ourselves committing to allow gross. Talk about losing weight committing to the fact that I am GONNA eat healthy every debt as once we get out of the space of lying to ourselves in having that true, then we can get to space. Forgiveness and forgiveness is all league the conscious decision that you're deciding to do something different and not allow the past or even your present to continue to hold you brown and powerful powerful where healing happens. Yes, like you said it is a process that truly is a process. My my healing. I, other share just a little bit. My healing was over relationships is again growing up I was raised by my grandmother. As. The love how I was taught to love really wasn't loved that I really wanted in my life and when I. Eventually into my twenties. And maybe a joke now and I I've written written about in my book that sex drugs and rock world where it's my way of life. That's how I lived. Came Joe Place I got to a place a use. It just tired exhausted and just said. This isn't the life that a warrant the life that I want for my children. And wait. It was enough is enough, but it was a process, but something I learned through all of that was forgiving myself, but what was really hard was that I learned that I had to ask for forgiveness to free my own cell before I can forgive those with the abuse was coming from. Yeah, you have to tap into your own your own sanity. It's like putting the horse before the cart right. Yes, right hand, not literally help people out there a uni. Help yourself right. You have to do that and when I tell people talk to them about it, it is truly diligent work in. To be stopping, you know that's GonNa you know I. Forgive you know. I'm healed we're. taught. About how it works I was sharing with someone the other day I do a a mentor in Group and on my forgiveness nation group on Facebook, and there's a person that I've amid soaring through social media, and they said they weren't ready yet, and the best thing that could do in a situation with our s to be patient eleven. Know that whenever you're right, I'm here. Because it is there's no timetable. How long is? I don't know right now. You can have situations where I remembered the first half. It was such an amazing phenomenal experience where I realize I actually forgiven someone. There was someone that I worked with end. We had a situation where it just blew up at escalated Bingo Wells, and so that person no longer worked with me and. Every time that person's name came up. There was cysts wind this nailing. Anger that came up and I just kept praying through it I kept saying. To apprentice. I. Don't WanNa feel this way and so that's the thing that you have to. Remember is a conscious decision. To make that decision in your mind, and over and over as you make it'll. Your heart will eventually lined up with it as a one day. Someone asked me about that. Person Connie when I tell you. I couldn't even think of the person's name. And then a mullet passed, and I'm unlike what is her name? What is her name on my goodness? And then I was like I. Remember what I still. Got Gaining. A You know and you know it wasn't even something that I was thinking about is just an said. That I'm going to make the decision every day that those emotions arose I made that decision and all of a sudden when it came up I didn't even realize that I had released. It was gone, and that was just such the most rejuvenating filling. Argued excited like something happens, it's not. Acting. I? Find. That is really powerful powerful message. The one person that I had to forgive through all mine. Was Funny I was actually in spinning. Class was biking and is having this congress and he he has since passed. was having this conversation with him. While I was spinning, right? All done my husband looked migos. You talking to. I said. He was a dancer. So then you know we kind was like dancing and spinning conversation, but it was. It was really really funny, but. It's just again how we change in. How out are we show up? How do we should give ourselves and when we do that? People see us in a different ways while. The self-discovery, the self confidence all of that just come to the forefront. In what you're doing and the message in the works, doing is so so powerful. Just the words that you are sharing, so please please continue. Please keep doing that. Show is heard everywhere.

We have a lot more to go here. Bite him, so finish the sentence for me. CanNot I am on stopped while because? I am unstoppable because I was forgiven. uh-huh I love that of that's beautiful. So what is your vulnerability? I guess my heart. Is, my ability I have. The hugest heart for people. Even though I said in the beginning ever member. A while ago like? People but. It's like and that's why I have my pet grooming business right because they always love me. Spend that based out of all of the hurt. But once I started to hail. Understand the things that I needed to forgive myself for in K. Then, my heart became so big that I wanted everybody to exploring. I could see that in your I could feel that I knew I. Don't know that's my heart is that's my vulnerability? It had to. So, what do you think is the greatest challenge facing the world today? Not Forgiving. I just you now. That's what we're talking about, but NAH boils down to and it's just A. Generation. Of Generation of generation. Of Generation of unforgiveness. That's pass town and pass down and unforgiveness is actually a taught behavior. Yeah, numb equal. You don't feel that you know. I'm making the decision to not do this, but going back to what we started to talk about in the beginning of the show. was you know the things that we were taught? When we grew when we were growing up right it, it stems from there. You are taught to releasing did not hold them of you're taught. You know to to be in a sandbox and say it's okay you know or you know here. It doesn't matter. You can play with my toys. You don't have to let me share toys view. You can still play with my toy. We weren't taught that. Some people were but a lot of us weren't. Generations are passed down, so is operatives. and. Let's talk about what's going on in our world today with George. I know. You know where where do you get in your mindset to do anything like that? But also you have to look at the fact that this is all been passed down. And so when you look at that, how do you have those positive confrontations? That's the one thing one of the things that I learned about forgiveness. Is that even though you've been hurt? You don't WanNa. have confrontation. doesn't always have to be negative. Connotation backing that can have a solution as as still continuously creating a problem. Learn how to have positive confrontation that will allow for a lot of to be removed and talking communication. Is he an every relationship in the world? Maverick? Matter who you are where you come from what you do, communication is so so important in listen. Listen listen to each other. We need you out. There was a spokesperson Ben that's a part of communication listening. Yes, man, you know. A lot of people think that communication is me talking. And getting my point across, but I have to hear what you're saying to me, right? Here, but I need to understand because the last conversations. I can remember in my youthful years next month. I'll be forty when I'm having conversations with somebody and I really don't WanNa. Hear what they said. You I hear you I hear what you said. When you understand the you, nine media understand you got to take a step further and have compassion for what the person is saying I may not necessarily agree with everything or every every person of point of view, but I have to have compassion for that. Brian stand that it's okay like you can't tell me how to feel I can tell you how to feel. On some level playing field where we can do this thing together. Yeah the weather right one agree with right. We are here together and you WANNA. Make the world a better place I mean in in my family alone. We combined family and we're in a good place now, but there was a time when we were J-. Because you're bringing in the. In laws, and you know other people that are coming into the conversation, so we made it a weight that when we are having a conversation that we are listening to understand. And that we are actually acknowledging that by setting I hear you see you took the words Avatar. I you and you know. Made so that we understand each other, and you have those conflicts within within a family unit. Now spread this out across the world like you said we're here to be for here for each other to be together and the one thing that's that's really painting me right now. Is You know this listening to so many people that are in pain? SILENT VOICES! I keep coming back to how can I help? What can I do because I'm not a quiet voice and I have a pretty sizable platform at I. Keep on, I. Keep going around that myself. What can I do to heal the people? And there's something I've been praying a lot myself. I WANNA. Talk about this really quickly. Because this is not the I'm really open, honest and transparent so during this whole thing. Corona Varas people that deaths that are happening know. It affected my house, not my house with my family. My grandmother contracted. Price Gosh. She had her ninety first birthday April fifteenth. On fighter. Even, even the loss of not going to work in there were some employees it. I wasn't able to bring that. And you know there's a lot of laws and I felt myself disconnecting.

They vary by family, individual and relationship. Can Encompass Complex. Family Dynamics, emotional distress, anger issues and entitlements and often involves substance abuse. This podcast addressed these issues and others surrounding the addiction epidemic, currently plaguing this country in the world. There is hope and help are you stuck scared or unsure of what to do next? If the situation with a loved one spouse or even a child, the started to spiral, possibly becoming dangerous or threatening.

Look Body this is Michael. Glenn more I'm Scott. Co host I would just like to ask you first hear if you could please go to your. podcast listening device of choice and give us a review arenas, a rating or review I think it's important what Scott's doing that it gets to. As many people as possible and the way that can happen is for us to increase our listenership, so please if you can help us out. Scott how you doing today? And what are we talking about? Michael I'm I'm I'm hunkered down I'm sheltering in place. I'm in lockdown and San. Diego California and we've been asked to do that. Not only my our mayor, but our our state governor, and at that higher risk age so I'm. I'm homebound and it's been very interesting, and it's different, so I'm doing everything I can to make the best of it I also WANNA courage, everybody, and I want to give you. My phone number is six, one, nine, nine, nine, three, two, seven, three, eight, six, one, nine, nine, nine, three, two, seven, three, eight of you hear this today's couple of days before the end of March two thousand twenty twenty, and I want to offer anybody who wishes to call me a ten minute free coaching, call and I want them to take advantage of that, so call me at six, one, nine, nine, nine, three, two seven three texts Mayfield by, and you can find me on the. The Web Scott H Silverman and Michael before we go forward. Would you in its basic language as possible? Tell people how to go get to what it is. We want them to do to give us a review, so we can get the the idea is to get the rankings up the rankings up. Mean that more people can hear us and the information that we're sharing people can then download and share with others in their family while so many of us are homebound, so would you just if you I call it the dummy report if no one's ever done that before, would you mind telling them how to do it and where to go and exactly what to do sure I'll use? Use the main podcast listening device, which is Apple. A lot of people use apple to apple podcast. WHO LISTEN TO PODCAST? So what you do, is you if you're on your laptop, I mean. If you're on your smartphone, go to apple. podcasts grow open a podcast. You want to give a review to scroll down to the bottom, and then you'll see five stars and also say under the stars writer review, so if you WanNa, just write it. Click the number of stars. You want to rate podcast. If you'd like to review and rate, lick the give a review link. ride a short review, and then click the writing and click enter, and you will then be after a day. Day or so you'll show up and that podcast link If you just give it a rating, you won't show up the count will, but it won't give your name, but if you give review, it will also show your name and your review and number of stars. You gave the podcast, and that is really the best way to help us to get this podcast out to more and more people. I I think as important as this information is that we're sharing and needs to get to more people and the only way we can do that is for your help, so that's how to do it in apple to do it. In other programs just. Look on there. Some of them have review some of them down. I think spotify doesn't have a review, but when you follow. PODCAST spotify that counts as review, so it's It's different with all of them, but for really the most, though the best one out there is apple, and that will do the most help A. Awesome at, and how can they reach you Michael if they have any more questions on how to do this technical guy? What's the best way to contact you and talk to you about you know things that are going on in their world? That might be helpful, and maybe we can get them at some point. We're going to be adding guests. What we? To really expand the information base and the platform to get you know what People WanNa hear about most right now. How can they reach you? Okay, my my email is Michael at inner city like yours dot com. That's the name of my other podcast, so it's APP. Michael at Inner City like yours dot com. And I have a website www in a city like yours dot com with a link to write an email to Ming Michael I. DOT, com email or go to the website www in a city like yours dot com and contact me they're. Very good and these were non paid for. Advertisements meaning. No one's paying us to do we do we do it? As volunteers added passion to try to get the word out and Michael Works night and day to really help many many people with lots of different levels of experience and expertise, get their messaging out to to be a resource, not only to our country, and hopefully globally as well all right so now we're into today's episode to talk about And this was my choice, not Michael, so hopefully he'll support. Is What to do. While you're at home if you're in recovery recovering from substance, abuse or addiction, or if you have some issues that are going on that, you know you're not clear what they are. You know you're depressed. You're anxious and right now. I don't know anybody who isn't a little bit anxious. If not a lot. And potentially depressed, because if you're staying home, and you're following the rules and VR being mandated to stay home, and you're not following the rules, you probably wandering around the community right now where a lot of businesses are closed and resources that you need. aren't available and I just actually just heard from somebody that told me they were going to the ninety nine cent store to pick up some candy and they told me they drove by crispy cream. which has A. A drive through and their line was over fifty cars long so clearly people are finding donuts as a nice way to put something in their body that will make them feel good and I just heard on the news today. That see's candy closed up their retail stores a couple of days ago, and they've just decided to shut down their whole business second time ever in the history of see's candy, and all of that is obviously to avoid contamination or spreading the. Cobra virus, so whereas some very unusual time, so here's a couple of my suggestions. something I did personally today. You all know recovery and I've been in recovery for a long time and I have a home group that I go to every week and I have for. You know almost thirty five years and Most anonymous meetings right now, treatment meetings. have been slowed down. If not canceled recovery meetings on nonethless meetings, twelve step meetings non twelve step meetings that have a you know. Coalition of people or cohort that meets daily, weekly or semi weekly have pretty much closed down. A lot of them are in social environments, like charges or the houses of worship, and they for safety reasons have shut their doors, so people can't congregate and potentially contaminate one another, so it's really interesting when you think about it because I've never experienced this personally in thirty five years where I couldn't go to a meeting. And I couldn't get to a meeting and even if I had someone take me. I couldn't go to a meeting right now. Most of the meetings have been physically just unfortunately turned off temporarily, so people are not gathering together even if they're practicing social distancing, it's really hard, and there's even people you know. Meetings around where people go, that are outdoor meetings and but at San Diego Right now we've had all the beaches. All the bays, all the common areas the parks close down so you can't really congregate and many places right now and in you know. All the medical experts are telling us that we shouldn't anyway at least until. This momentum of this virus slows down. So what I'm doing is and this morning I was on zoom in zoom is one of the mechanism. I know Microsoft. Has Its skype dozen as well and you can facetime in groups. I don't know all the technical parts of it, but there were thirty three of us from our home group that were on a meeting this morning and And it was fascinating. You're looking at thirty three people you know on the computer laptop and hearing their stories and talking about what they're doing. You know in watching everyone in their pajamas and having coffee or someone more smoking a cigarette and playing with their dog, or their baby was there and was just great. You know and I'm I'm F- I shared passed on. In so for me, it was kind of awesome all that activity happening at one time. Unfortunately, it's my dog in the background barking because I'm out my I called the clubhouse with little shed where I I do some stuff and and a lot of what I do with Michael. We do right here, so forgive Hereford marking. She just likes keeping an eye on things, and she's been in the house locked up with us so. What I did I on a meeting and I spent an hour listening to other addicts or alcoholics who are in recovery talking about what's going on with them? And so I made a meeting today I was real excited about that, so that's one thing that I'm doing. And you know there's online meetings actually if you go, you know recovering meetings on online and Google. Google that you can find them in your community, and if you're to recovery, and you've just recently gotten off of your substances, you can find ways to you know. Get on the phone with others and take care of your own personal recovery. 'cause that's important and the only way that you can do that is to to reach out rather than staying at home. And worrying about it and getting anxious about it and I'm sure you are Get on line. Call your friends, and if you've been in recovery for even a short period of time and know couple of meetings, there's also phone lists that exists so grab that phone list, and if you think about it, and you go on, and you Google therapy clinical support crisis hotlines. There is a ton of things happening right now. Online specifically for individuals and recovery community. I'm certain I haven't seen it yet, but there's probably a lot of famous people, artists and movie stars who are in recovery who are probably hosting. Some of their own meetings may be hard to find. Because they're you know better the at the end of the day. If you don't go online, you don't look in you. Don't ask questions and again. If you're not sure what to do, and you're hearing my voice, Michael's voice. Call me we can talk. I mean when you and I talked together It's a meeting for me at the time that we can share with each other, so why number again is six, one, nine, nine, nine, three, two, seven, three eight and I know you're hearing this thing. You want to call them on a one. Bother him. Hey I'm in lockdown I've got I. DON'T WANNA say have nothing to do on plenty busy, but call me if I miss your. Your call leave a voicemail and I'll get back to you as soon as I can, and we'll, we'll figure something out. That makes sense so the online meetings looking for the the the foundations of support online itself a call, your local faith based communities you know there may be numbers or giving out, and then maybe faith based leaders out there, and there may be people volunteering right now at phone banks if you will in certain recovery community, because a lot of that work was always done at home anyway, so they might be able to give you a phone number. If they won't give you a phone number, they'll probably take yours. Share it with somebody. Else's somebody will call you. So, no excuse. Don't sit home alone and don't pick something up that you've spent weeks months. Maybe even years finding ways to live life without it, because this is a very unusual time, and it's a scary time and I know that so you're not alone, though and there is hope and there's always help, so don't be afraid to pick up the phone so next in line My question is so far well, I was was just GonNa say that people are depressed at this time, so that would be something that. would be a trigger for them to use. Alcohol drugs again to stave off that depression. I something else. I was going to ask you. The twelve step programs usually. You have a sponsor for yourself credit. Is that true with everyone or just? You have to reach a certain level. Then you could sponsor that. No you can, you can go in and I got my sponsor my first week. sponsors. You know if you don't know what it is sponsors kind of like a mentor, a big brother, a big sister, and the idea is just to have somebody in your life that has kind of been there done that, and has some experience and kind of be your guiding light your advocate. You know your your bus driver. If you will when you get on the bus SORTA, speak and they're there to help you and. All. You have to simply do when you're at a meeting is if you if you haven't been to one yet? Even when you're talking to somebody on the phone, is you. It's out those three magic words. You know I need help. That are hard to ask for, but you just ask for somebody, and there's no criteria that than a willingness to you know to surrender to what's going. Going on and a willingness to stop doing what you're doing, and then a willingness to ask the question of somebody I mean I have a sponsor I've had for. Since my beginning in eighty four and I have a sponsor that I've been working with since eighty seven almost thirty two years. We've been together, so you know, and it's not that hard to do and part of. Of the concept of social a modeling if you will around these social interaction of recovery is the concept of giving away, so you can keep it. That's the phrase I like a lot and we hear a lot is you can't keep it if you don't give it away so when you call somebody and they're your sponsor and again you may feel like you're you know taxing them? Them for the information they might have, but they're also feeling good about the fact that they're being asked for help. So it's kind of an interesting philosophy of support kind of like what a parent does with a child you know every parent wants a child to come to them and ask for help, but a lot of kids. You know we don't want to go to our parents. So. It's not quite like that, but the concept of reaching out and connecting is real important a form of advocacy and the social model. If you will of some other twelve step programs which. Is the only real global treatment modality. That's supposedly most consistent in the world. Is that social model where you're actually with people? Who have done the same things you've done in their life experience with substance, abuse and self medication that when you talk about what's going on more than likely, they've been through it as well or they've experienced it as well or they have had it in their family, and when I talk about family I believe this is a family disease, so for those who are listening who maybe don't have the issue around Addiction Burr, married to or live with or have a memory of family who have issues with substance, abuse, addiction, or self help groups for you as well, and there's guidance out there as well, and of course there's the whole professional world of clinicians, psychologists and psychiatrists that you know specialize in. In work with this particular issue that and they're out there in the crisis, hotlines have people. Hopefully that are trained. You can help guide you if you're personally going through an episode and don't know what to do. just know that there's always a choice, so you don't have to feel the way you're feeling. If you don't want to just have to reach offer help, everybody check out. The show notes all high of links to websites that have the hotlines and things like that so If you don't want to go through Google, yourself just check out. The show notes for this episode. And in the show notes, there will be links, so go ahead and get us to number two Scott. To is, is you know One was calling, and then to is going online, so I think we're up to number three and number. Three is really to think about when you're at home. What can you do yourself? Let's just say okay. You know what I don't WanNa. Go online I'm embarrassed to do that I'm uncomfortable talking to a stranger. Take out a PENCIL TAKATA PAN to go to Crayon and start journaling. Just start journaling. What does that mean what's journaling me well, start writing. If you will. What's writing me that means take your pencil and put it on a piece of paper and say. Today is Saturday and it is what is today the twenty eighth of March? And My name is Scott, and I am feeling happy feeling. Sad I'm feeling like I want. The Sun is out, and and it's nice to see the sun on. It's been raining for awhile and just start writing. And through that writing, you know the the pressure that sits on your chest, the piece of pain that you have in your heart might diminish just a little bit and if you want to. Personalize that writing right that to someone who maybe you think would wanna hear what you have to say or. They're someone you want to say something to. That doesn't WANNA. Hear it, but you can write it out, so that's why you're. You're kind of you know. There's a term that I like pressure bust pipes, so by writing and journaling. You can lower some of that pressure. Bring the blood pressure down a little bit, and you know you can. Ashley do a lot of. Of cleansing around the writing piece and journaling, and just talking about what's going on with you, and if you're not sure how to get, it started again, you can either go online. How do I journal or you can start ready? You know and you don't have to be neat. You don't have to print. You can use cursive writing. You can use. CRAYONS felt tip pens. There's no set way to do it, but get into action. Do something you know way. 'cause this news right now if you're watching it like I am, you're probably getting a little bit obsessed with it, and it's a little bit overwhelming because it's very taxing as well so the writing piece is real, real, real easy, and it's a great great tool. If you've never done it way to see and there are, there are part of the science about writing is if you're right handed. If you right with your left hand I noticed isn't GonNa make sense to you to try it, but if you right with your opposite hand, your non. Dominant hand, it's technically your inner child. That's actually writing, so think about that for a second. If. You're right handed and you write a journal you know like for me. I might write dear higher power or deer, O. D., dear God I wanted to let you know that I'm here today and I'm sober today and I really WanNa turn my will, and my life over to you a higher power greater than myself because I. Don't want to do with what's going on right now. And, if I put my pencil in my other hand and I write that same message, it's like my inner child. Little Scott is talking to my higher power and I learned a long time ago, and it's fascinating. You try that, and you'll find that because I. think Everybody has an inner child inside there. We haven't seen Michael's yet, but I'm sure it probably were cool hat, and they have a beard and glasses as well so. Fighting something you can do it so moving into the next one. The next one is is meditation, and that's the fourth one in in the fourth one. Simply as you know, you know affirmations affirmations. If you don't know what those are there's something simple like you wake up in the morning. Your today I'm going to do the best job. I can do with what I have in front of me. That's an affirmation. Do affirmations. Michael I don't do. That I know of I may do them kind of unconsciously, but I. I don't say well. I'm going to do positive affirmation. Okay, but I do meditate you know that helps yeah and meditation for most people don't know how to do it again. There's tons of youtube is out there, and it usually only takes a few seconds of few minutes meditating as simply closing your eyes breathing in and out, and then you know there's a couple of different tools you can use with it, but rather than give you mine. I want you to kind of go on. Do a little research tested out and you know one of my favorite affirmations. I heard long long time ago there was. There was a car salesman I. Don't want to say I. WanNa. Say Detroit that's probably were was and this guy was the top salesman in the country. And it when asked, was interviewed a couple of years into his career. And know the interviewer said. What is it you do? How do you achieve this kind of volume of business in this customer base? And he said I do affirmations. And so they pursued it and he said. Would you like to hear what I do? And they said sure is a story that was conveyed to me so ever every morning. This guy would wake up. You know do as little morning routine, and then he'd go to the mirror, and it looked himself in the eye he'd make a point did not look in the mirror. To see how much you know. Our biggest stomach is he's actually look himself in the eye and he would say. Don't you ever Dye gorgeous double? and. He was say three times and he'd be talking to himself. So, everyone says wait a minute. Wait a minute. That's how you. Make the sales. No, no, no, that's how I put myself up. That's my morning affirmation. Don't you ever die you gorgeous devil and he made it up and created it, so they pursued and said so. What is it you do that so different to be number one in the country, so listen to this my. This guy if you wanna, go and by car from the sky. We'll call him Jim Right, and then a year goes by. And Jim would call you on the birthday of the purchase of your car. Okay ignore I'm going with this. and He'd start singing. Happy Birthday to you. Not You, but the car. So. He's happy. Birthday your car. Abby birthday to your car. Happy Birthday to your car. Happy Birthday to your car now. You as the car owner. Obviously they can. Let's guy must be nuts. But? You know what that person would do that day. It worked that next week at work with family and friends would tell everybody you gotta call this Guy Jim. He's unbelievable. He called me in Sung. Happy Birthday to my car. It was amazing so just that little shift in something. Help this guy not only do tremendous business, but he made people feel good, and what people felt good. They would tell other people that this guy made them feel good and other people wanted to know who this guy was. That's how he built his business, and it all started with a simple art formation in the morning. So those are real important along with meditation along with journaling along with calling others you know and I think they'll ask one or the fifth one that I'd like to share my call is. To just sit quietly. Honor yourself and practice some self care. What does that mean it means do something that you really want to do for yourself. Maybe you haven't done and if it sitting quietly for five or ten minutes, turn off the TV put on some music, maybe just sing to yourself or or listen to your favorite song or read something. But just get OUTTA yourself for a couple minutes ago. You know we. We made toll house cookies the other day I do not know why, but it was in my head for three days, so we ate we made them, and then we ate them. And then we both got stomach aches. My wife and I we ate so many we were so excited about it. And that was practicing self care, and it looked, and we're locked down together. My wife and I right now she works a lot and I do too, and we're both home now working from home and you know there are some great stuff. We've just rediscovered about each other. She been doing puzzles and shoes out in the yard today. I'm doing this with Michael. So that's the last part of it is practice self care work on things like mindfulness and mindfulness is a great tool as well along with meditation, and my easy definition of mindfulness is learning how to live in the moment. Meaning If you can live for sixty seconds. And let go of everything else. That's around you. You can move that sixty seconds into a second minute a third minute, and build it up over time to half hour to an hour, and all of a sudden now the day. Is being crafted, and the comes being crafted by you. My Pie others outside influencers, so those are the kind of the key five. Michael any follow up questions. You have any thoughts you want to add or anything you think I missed that you want me to cover now. You've pretty much covered it, but there are a couple of things I wanted to bring up. As far as journaling I, just want to make sure that everybody understands that you do not have to be a writer. You're not ruining Warren piece or Moby Dick Even if all you do is put down adjectives that describe how you're feeling just phrases. It doesn't have to be a complete census as long as you're writing, and you're emoting through your writing to that journal and also. With elderly, there's a lot of people who are. Home, alone so it's very important that you tried to get into a program where you can do sky produce them and view other people especially. If you're all alone so that you don't feel so along, you know, you can reach out over the Internet and You Know I. think that even after this of ours is over. We're going to see an. An uptick in people who use online correspondence even more other than email about about video shots and things like that, because it's really something to be able to see the person you're talking to and relate to them, and now that they're just right there at the same time. You know maybe hours apart from you, but there At that moment there, you're both together So that's really all want to add Scott, do you have any positive affirmations for today? You know I I WANNA. Go back to my in my old, lay old standby issue. If you do what you've always done, you're going to get what you've always gotten. And if what you're doing isn't working for you. Try something new. Don't be afraid and I just want to add a quick story. My you know I. When I first started journaling and writing I I was it was suggested. I go, get a God. God Box and a God box is something that you know got a shoebox and put a hole of the top of it and I write little messages to disappear points Goodwin 'cause a lot of us will think about well. You know I wanNA right neat and I WANNA be grammatically correct and semantically sound, and I want to spell check and bum up and the idea by the way of the writing you don't. Have to type it. You can handwrite it, and there's something special about getting your hand on a piece of paper. So what I would do I, I I didn't know how to do it, and I was afraid of it because I wasn't a good writer. You know kind of book published. I'm working on another book, but still I'm not a great writer or Raider meeting I can speak it and I'm having a ghostwriter helped me, but what I did was I went and got those special post. It's the real small tiny ones that like on our one inch by one inch. So I did an someone. My sponsor said Philip a whole page of paper, so I got a real small piece of paper. And I use that to do my. You know so I just say God. I, AM tired today and my wife is in the room breathing. Please take care of it now. Is it love Scott so? It could be something simple like I want to have to day, or you know what I wish. My neighbor would turn their stereo down whatever it is just write it down. Because then it takes off. You enlightens your load so as you move around your day, hopefully a little lighter. Hopefully, some of the suggestions were heard today not only. Only will be ones you can utilize, and if there's something out there by the way that we've missed, and you want us to talk about it now. Let Michael Know or or or let me know, and we'll find a way to put it together in the podcast. And then when this posted as Michael said go out. Let us know what you think about it. Go Onto Apple. mixim reviews puts rate us. Let us know what you think, and then email us Texas and let's. We want to talk about what you WanNa talk about. So have a great rest of the day a a good month and be safe. Be Healthy and love yourself. Front.

Thank you guys it's Martin from shape. We're here right now in San Francisco Studio and unconnected to aid today on with the founder of fight camp. Could you Saha could you. Why don't you deduce yourself yeah awesome first of all thanks for receiving me on podcasts Martin so my name is Jill? I'm the CO founder and C._E._O.. Fight camp and we basically started fighting for about a year and a half ago or spy Cam so fi camp is an interactive home boxing gym it comes with everything you need to start boxing and and you actually follow videos that are built by the best trainers of all the west coast they all former fighters <hes> they all have obviously a tremendous fight expands but they're also great fitness instructor in general so for the listener on our show that has never seen it's what should be mentioned should be mentioned punching back back a pair of gloves so what the half yes so it comes with a free standing bag the best rescinding bag on the market with a pair of genuine leather gloves made in approved by fighters it comes with a workout matt a pair of what we call quick crabs and the special sauce is who motion ocean trackers that you put in the quick reads Ma and they track your hands a thousand times per second trek want like my speed and my my punches punches. I'm doing per minute which I expect yes. They tracked the type of country. Throw they measured the speed of the punches indivisibly build your output profile from one round to the other what about impact not the impact. It's really the velocity okay velocity of your hand and which directly throwing and how does like the coaching look like you mentioned that you have coaches of owner of the place and should I imagine like watching them like on my t._v.. Or iphone or seven for me yes so it comes with an I._O._S.. APP You can tap you myriad on a large screen T._v. or you can watch the workouts on an IPAD whatever you prefer and then from there. It's Kinda like all you can eat buffet really so if you're advanced AWW can jump straight into the advanced work outside away we go and deep into the complex combinations we'd practice footwork and the workouts of very intense otherwise it can literally start at the very first time you've you're. You're throwing your first punch so we have what we call a a prospect path <hes> where it takes from zero boxing experience teaches you to six inches and then at the end of the prospect path which is about a four week's program. You actually know how to six months. Probably you know how to stand you know. The basics are Balkan. It's mostly regular boxing. We also offer classes for a Thai Boxing M._M._A.. Nelson we actually were focusing on boxing at the moment but <hes> we're having a lot of internal conversations around providing kickboxing as well as a kickboxing not really as a as a an expansion and so so who's like you you're of course right now. Is it really like what you just mentioned on like the the beginners or is it like somebody that's been do boxing all their life or hundred seventy four for you guys yeah. It's really seventy five percent beginners but it's actually very interesting to see like a lot of them are now not beginners anymore. uh-huh so you know we kind of took a bunch of them and you know through the program you get to see their videos online and on the social media and they're getting very proper form on they have the basics of boxing of course they don't have the in ring experience right. Is it still it's a home virtual show experience yeah. You can't really compete against somebody else right right so yeah you actually can compete but on output and precision <hes> you can't compete on actual defense and offense of course you're not going to get hit and how does like a class look like is it one on one coaching tailored to me. It was like a big class like Panitan style. Yeah it is really a group class so it's you'll have usually the video stream will be divided into not that it's divided on the screen per se but vary between having the camera centered on the coach and then getting bureau that is very dynamic that removes around in the class and focuses on the participants taking the class live at our studio in Newport beach and for for me. You know like <hes> me having like an iphone like am I supposed to I I don't know put up my phone like somewhere like on a on a counter and then look at it why I'm like <hes> punching it out on my back or how should I mention it yeah. That's a very good question like there's not a lot of people use it only with the with the iphone unless they're traveling aren't as they're actually using using it within a gym available Jim or their apartment Jim defending most people digging each day. My cable upload the Stream directly on on a big screen T._v.. You have accents yeah. All we have a portion of our users who actually <hes> are doing it on an IPAD and how about Apple T._v.. That works as well <hes> yeah yeah you can mirror exactly you can use apple T._v.. To Mirror the the stream the read the Big Screen T._V.'s. That's definitely the best experience you're getting very loud sounds and music you hear the voice really really properly. The mill is of the bag doesn't supplant the voice of the trainer lifts. Your stats are displayed very big for you so like you're really into it can feel like you're you know you've been tracked in really part of a group experience and it's both I._O._S.. And ANDROID OS mostly I s right now Dolphin I was saying it's only on islands got it and so why are people doing it <hes> do they just want to get a workout and they're not happy with you. Know like an experience like Peleton. Maybe the half a pedal tone and they want to supplement it with something else or do they actually want to get into boxing and learn those skills for. Let's say Self Defense Yeah. It's interesting so calm. We have two types of customers. Sewers the first type of customers really just always intrigued by boxing. They want to do it because it's a work of that actually get something out of it. Even though you would stop working out after a year like you would still acquire the skills and those are self defense skills you know a lot of people are mystified by you know how to actually throw a punch and how to do it properly so that was one portion of our customers the other portion of because there is actually coming from the idea that boxing is the best workout to get in shape and they discovered the fundamentals in detail sneaks through fight cam so the first I reason they joined is for fitness persist really assuming that boxing is the best out there the other portion come straight because they want boxing but they can't attend have a busy lifestyle. They're young parents. Hitting the gym is increasingly harder with a busy schedule so that's the other proposition position that they they really resonate with and right. Now doesn't only work. If I buy your equipment on of on your website defied Cam Jim or can also like file it without any equipment in mid Sam doing some shadowboxing yes so you actually usually have a few classes. You can do all the classes technically shadowboxing and you can use the trackers. The trackers will still detector bunches. Even though you're not bunching anything we really recommend from a for an actual workouts perspective really recommend you punching the bag because the impact the body really you know like really gets a lot more stress out of it stress in a good sense of it where like your muscles are really. I would say like their action right so your whole body will actually have to sustain that impact and it's more tiring allow more effective workout more resistant yes exactly and so what is the cost. If I buy a five comes in because I think you have some different patches right correct so if you take the typical five game home gym it's a thousand ninety five it comes with free delivery and you're getting everything we haven't family package where you can get an extra pair of gloves and we ship you actually a pair of gloves that comes with it for the whole family and if you take the connect package that only comes with a trackers and the quick raps so if you already have a bag that might you can use the connect package and you'll you get to go gotcha and how much space would unease is something that I could set up in my living room a bathroom yeah pretty much all of the above depending. How defending how big is your bedroom? I'm sure in this area of Manhattan you know we have listeners obsolete like places in like San Francisco New York City city and they're right alcohol. Donald space right so six by eight is the minimum space required omelettes talk a bit about the the founding story because that's quite interesting because you guys were in five cam in the beginning right. You were working on a on a product called Hick Zo correct <unk>. Tell me more about how you actually got going what the first idea was and then how that changed for you yes. Oh fight. Camp is really. Let's call it like around sixteen months old <hes> when we started hick so he was actually back in two thousand fifteen <hes> and Hicks Oh is basically the holding company now includes fight campaign both takes we focused on the on the technology so the motion trackers themselves and our first clients was was actually the Canadian Olympic team so can stop stop. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa stop you right there. How did you even get to the idea of building tracks for boxing <hes> so myself I started boxing pretty late and my background is in micro lentil mcgonagall sensors and basically I studied men's? That's part of my research project was clear that they were getting small enough to be put on the body and you also have applications about that now. My the research was actually on a medical device used really focused on micro fluids now really accelerometers in gyroscope stitches record. Take the product but I started boxing pretty much at the same time as I started my research and I completely sell enough with the sport I was going five times a week really into it preparing for my first fight and <hes> you know at the beginning when you start boxing. The progress is really addicting 'cause you. You've very fast and boxing for me was always distinct that it was like you know I I stopped. It's like you have it or you. Don't and you know I was spending hours in the gym and I was like Oh my God like actually getting really like I'm getting much better and at some point it starts to be a game of inches. What got you into it in the first place no somebody that was doing it as well? What happens yeah yeah exactly? I mean like I'm did it died back. Then I mentioned met him when I was traveling and I don't know we started talking a lot. He he started at that point he had started boxing about a few years now and he was so passionate about it and kind of intrigued me and he was in super shape you know and growing up always played a lot of sports and end. There's something about boxers that was just the next level of athleticism there strong mentally physically emotionally and it's a sport that always intrigued me and when I moved to Toronto. I just happened to go to boxing gym in the first time. I just wanted to come and see how it looks like so you know for anyone who has been the traditional boxing gym is going to be familiar for them but I just showed up inside I was expecting to maybe get a pamphlet and learn more about how the classes go and the guy looked at me in you know there's a hey hi whatever and twenty minutes in I'm just sitting I'm watching glass and he goes around his his counter and gives me a perfect love yet. He's glove. We're going to go small session and like piquet there okay and then he gave me like just an ass kicking workout and twenty minutes I was done. We were doing mitts. Everything was horrible about it for my own performance but I I was like wow okay. That's you know that's the s well being. I was hoping for so I just kept going to the gym at night fell more and more in love with it and that Jimmy had to earn your way to the ring do an actual first <unk> sparring experience and how to do that so you you practice a lot of defense practice the basics until they think ready then whenever you're ready to put you in there but you don't go out they're going to at the beginning to put you with a more experienced person and then you're GonNa throw punches at them. <hes> <hes> there is going to be on defense and then he'd be opposite and then at some point you have your first real sparring session but like something that that you actually manage to reach replicate you know like to have you know re like also like that counterpart for Riach practicing punches. This can replicate that just punching back. Yes that's interesting part right is nowadays if you look at you to read if you look at any skilled acquired skill right. There's a tremendous amount of teaching just happening one way on Youtube pretty much about every physical skill <hes> even though you need a lot of feedback often actually when it's like a two way street but when you do a lot of boxing you spend a lot of time in front of the mirror you spend a lot of time replicating drills in focusing exactly on your body positioning for that whole part. You don't really need a partner. You don't need someone to tell punches back at you. That's actually a very small portion of the boxing workouts anyways so we can get very far anyways just to go back. I was just curious. So how how did you get. I mean you were working on X._M.. Readers and Jars Pohang and you were getting passionate about oxygen seeing and then what motivated you to bring two of them together. Where were you actually missing? You know getting to the gym that you want to work on at home. What was it no at the beginning? We I definitely wasn't even thinking about fitness at all. I was just thinking of a way to measure my incremental progress frustrating process because there was no objective data whatsoever in the gym and you know I was in a gym where my coach was actually an international referee. She was spotted boxing candidates. She knew a lot of high-level clues as well and I'm like there's no way there's no measurement. She's like yeah. There are some type of measurements. It's how many rounds are able to go in the ring you know and but then it's like oh well it's dependent on how hard do you go in the ring or on the bay and then the other measurement. was you know well. How long can you run for and how? So fast it was all these things that were not exactly correlated to your boxing performance right so you know the best benchmark was measuring if you're getting better than others but they're evolving as well so that it became a little bit for string and like some self doubt about am I still progressing hero man. I'm only maintaining and at that point I was like at least you put measure just literally the speed of my punches if I could measure the amount of punches I'm throwing when I'm going three minutes on the bag. That'll give me some information so we started their garnered so so that was really like initial products was really kinda attractive but for boxing exactly exactly and then then how did that go when you guys launched at products. How did you guys know about it and then what happens well? It's pretty much like every entrepreneur like you don't really know what you're doing. You're we came from a product oriented. It's not even product but engineering oriented problem solving approach so like basically we tried to make the garage word and it wasn't working well at all in the beginning for example every time that you it's flicker end product would count that as a punch so you'd scratch your head quickly enough and that would be a punch that would like screw up your whole data set you know it's kind of like fitness records in the early stages wherein you know hands and you would actually trek steps whereas you get all the things so we did a lot of <hes> you know engineering an are indeed to to make the <unk> on a good enough we were lucky to be in touch with Canadian Olympic coach very fast and he was very patient because he really saw how he could use this with all of his athletes he was telling me of how difficult it is to get data outside of when they're in training camps so he could at least see the data you know even though the especially in Canada is such a big country like getting everyone of the same places are so he could at least strike his athlete's performance throughout the regular of championship seasons and you know went whenever they come to training camp than he could actually get a lot of background of you know who's in shape was not in shape is one speed of a punch much lower than usual which would mean injuries. He'd have all sorts of information so he was patient. The law with us we built multiple iterations to a point where that's it he started using the product on a regular basis and what started requesting features and features so that this is where we knew that we were onto something got it and then how did that further wolf like we're onto something but quiets the same experience on what you're offering today right very far right so like at the beginning not only the hardware itself was very very prototype right so like we would build the boards in small batches in would seek them into silicon ourselves literally at our apartment and the APP was very very rudimentary not a lot of features but the interesting part is we were only dealing with professional athletes and it was almost like you know the reverse of going mass market like the higher. The person was the the more they were interested in the product so very quickly. We were shipping prototypes to the U._S.. Olympic team to the cinema chain co two Anthony Joshua like some of these these guys are users of the product today but they don't use fight camp defied camp ab these defy cam trackers with as the version of the APP that is meant for professionals right so wasn't also like the group that you thought he could sell the device to in the end and really make a business out of it or yeah yeah for sure I mean we knew we would sell it to the professional athletes and we knew that at this was such a small world that we have very high referral rate in that top athletes community you know and of course in the meantime which is where we you know we got accepted into. I see we move the whole company to to California and we started the mass manufacturing process members to plan ready to you go beyond just in our athletes and really go to consumers or is that something that he just really stumbled into so that part is interesting so we we only focused on getting the product out there <hes> so once we went through mass manufacturing was started shipping the products and we had a very high penetration in the market. What happened is kind of like the fitness will kind of stumbled on us more than us going directly to the fitness world in boxing m._M._a.? It's a very different structure in terms of like the market. It's a different structure than like a basketball team sport most of the money that goes into doing these activities are not for the people that actually are pursuing the sport. It's only for the people that are pursuing conditioning aspect of it the fitness aspect of it so what happened is we had a lot of early early customers that they would go to do with train their prospect and then at four P._M.. They're doing they're doing a private session with Johann from New Jersey. WHO's only there for as a private client their fitness workout in the would use our product to motivate their clients and so they'll give punch goals to them? They'll give typical outputs that they have to reach it within four weeks so they were kind of hacking the existing product really to give a fi their fitness experience on one on one or even on a group Class sedans a trainer started coming to us and taking new build this orange theory type of user interface where everyone in the class would wear your trackers and you could compete against everyone on the big screen and it'd be did you try going that approach. I mean really working with that. Say personal trainers coaches in gyms that were offering these boxing classes uses or one on one sessions yeah for sure I mean we we started developing more fitness feature. We actually build version of again. Defied user interface that could take thirty people and we had those in fifty different locations in the United States and we we still have a bunch of gyms that are still using that version of the product. We never went fully commercial on it because home fitness was a bigger opportunity. We wanted to pursue. So what was that like the a Ha moment for you. Were like you know tailoring. I know those groups were. We're like well wait a minute why up bring that experience also through the home if we can pretty much exactly one of the things that we noticed when we ship that Jim Product was that a lot of there's a big variance in the quality of trainers are getting in boxing right like most of them have somewhat out of a no kings fitness background a lot of them. Maybe like you know studied in physical therapy and have some scientific notions to it but when it comes to the boxing skill itself we had a very high like some coaches and trainers really were teaching the best classes. This is ever like not only they were taking bidders teaching them about the real fundamental aspect of the sport and at the same time giving away a great workout that was engaging and others were just completely often on the technique and we thought like you know there's something where we could build the content mhm and that content we can control the quality of any would spread like we would consider very high quality of teaching but everyone can access that same high quality of teaching right and we thought there was like a great way also to control the experience with the trackers 'cause like we had had to do a lot of education with trainers to tell them how technology actually works what it measures. What's a good benchmark? What's bad benchmark? We're like in a completely integrated APP. We control the whole experience from from zero to end really so we thought he was a big opportunity. Got Got it and so that was like two years ago from now was yeah pretty much sixteen months actually sixty months and you feel like you were a bit influence. Also on you know by like some of the department. It seems like there's a lot of 'em products that have been entering either like a few years ago. Go into that kind of spaces into the home online on-demand fitness space I mean like to eat like <hes> physical products and services like Peleton or Tony recently we had the found recently on the show yep or mirror and we also seeing of course in all I only glasses in our that are either on demand or live by let's say class poss even Peleton's be moving beyond just an audit the treadmill in the Excise Cycle Yup and you can go into yoga running. There's also like after that offered I coaching for you. You for your running skills and all kinds of sports. You feel like that. It's like a general trend and has also been influencing you in some way or another or definitely. Did you know like when we started looking at home fitness. We used to hate her fitness ways. We used to think that it's only people that that you know are not really trying to put in the works to get in shape and they're trying to get this magic bill and like put the electronic directly on their APPS and you know so they can go back to their typical invasion while getting in shape and some of these like the previous generation of homes in this companies a lot of were we felt were very <hes> over promising over promising how in terms of results read like we felt it was a whole little bit of scammy pitch there where like they would say lose ten pounds in ten days so as we're talking about like the product that you would find let's say on Q._V._C. Z. and yes they would sell you at like weird hours of the night where you were at your weakest and most vulnerable moment <hes> and they would try to upsell you so much and really like portray people that really really haven't been using the product but just really really people that are in shaved representing that new Kataoka although it's actually very untrue that didn't get in shape through using that product so we just felt like you know the home fitness market we we had that bad assumption. If you want to bias negative bias <hes> yeah that was stuck like eighties for over twenty years you know like yeah witness. You know you also get like V._H._S. and excise video on or that seems to have changed in the last five or so years and I'm just wondering in you know what really has been driving that change. What do you think yeah? It's it's a good question. I think there's this has been this new generation of companies. That are a lot more than they're not over promising. They're just the whole business model is not made around trying to get you through the first <unk> purchase right so I think that probably influenced a lot of it on subscription businesses. The interest is aligned between the company and the user right because like if they stopped getting value out of it they will stop paying for the subscription so like I think that business model by itself allowing the lob the companies with the <hes> users benefits probably helped technology helped itself. Everyone now has literally <hes> Super Powerful T._v. in their pockets at all times a lot more people are definitely aware of the benefits of being in shaved right. Are Let's call these like exercising and I think that drove a different marquette to home fitness and personally. I think that is that combined with the new business model is probably what drove the biggest change. Is that the people that are joining our service. They're not people that are completely out of shape. Never were in shape. There are these people that have a hard time getting the exercise because of like you know so they either. They're young parent or other. They just bought a house in the suburbs now. Hitting a gym is basically a hassle so I told about that friction you know move. Jim Is just you know five minutes or ten minute the drive away. He's still lingering thought in your mind well you know it's GonNa take ten minutes there and then ten minutes back right locker room and get changed before you know <hes> you decided not to go because it's too much hassle yet for sure and ten minutes. Is You know it's definitely you know it's because it's not too far believe me here in L._A.. If you're in the traffic traffic time ten minutes can transform into half an hour very very easily so yeah plus you have to care about what you worrying me. Don't want to look like a Slob and yeah and you have to you have to pick up the kids the after school and who's going to do that and not have to find a babysitter. Just go to the gym or you know. There's there's so much friction into incorporating three four or five times a fitness in your life that you're probably gonNA stop working out but on the flip side Dude you you believe that there is going to still be a place for you know freaking mortar gyms and you know classes like so cycle Barry's bootcamp or even the new introduce rummell yeah. I do think that boutique fitness is still going to be a thing for sure because <hes> you know there's people people first of all that just don't have to have a good home fitness product. That's still going to stay the the case. These facilities will still provide an answer to a need that will stay there however I do think that the new market of fitness is GonNa go consider at least a lot more from fitness products specifically for the reason that you know what you're getting a gym is a social experience and that is the number one reason why people are still going to the same locations because they're now have a certain community to go to the interesting part. Now is technology provides a lot of those tools to build communities around. You think you can replicate that because that is still see personally as one of the challenges I mean I do own a panitan by for reasons and I mean I do see people and they're now know that bid and a camera but you can reuse camera. Nobody's using it where I and I mean I like the the leader in that you can compete against others. I mean that is definitely important fact but you don't really get to have that Chitchat before off the class you knows Nadi other people in the group and this this big anonymous group sometimes. I think there's a little bit less almost cohesion there because like if I have like a regular group that would go to like I would always feel like that social pressure that would have to come again 'cause otherwise they would ask me where I've been. You know wherever being known mosque loss because I didn't show up yeah for sure. I don't think our generation of companies have figured everything out yet. I think that right away performance data weaves this social fabric a lot and we see in products that actually measured performance in allow you to compare because suddenly there is if you think about how you're interacting contracting into Jim Right yes chitchat before you have the Chitchat. After maybe in between exits has a little bit but what you're getting also that's really useful for your fitness. Experience is you're getting that social pressure alarms you whenever you're performing right. If it's a group class you kind of want to perform perform. That's kind of like almost your your way of investing in that class is raising the bar right so everyone raises the bar together. Must you see others and how they're performing and you Kinda won't be as good as they are and you do have some of that like through the metrics but it's still less less visible. I think and I mean like in the gym you would see people getting better. You'd see them getting in shape. You'd see all that a lot of these things. There are definitely replicable to a certain extent through performance data and I think it's it's still not to the level that everyone is is buying into it but we get power users that are literally like getting to a point where we have this two couples. It's it's like the story this month inside the office. We have these two couples one one couple from Alaska and the the other couples in the Philippines they're American but they're in the Philippines and they're constantly challenging each other. It's very healthy right so like and they're literally like talking about how they wanna meet how like like there's this whole tagging each other and they're posting pictures and tried to be that Michael and this and that in like it's getting to a point where like mandate getting more social experience than what I'm getting at my gym. You know how do that. Do you have like a chat function inside of the APP or do you have a forum or out of seven yeah so right. No no we have facebook community so that fits become is where people go in Pos the results we have people posting before and after pictures we have people asking feedback on form. We have all sorts of terrible moments that people interact on right ends us. It's very empowering. Community like everyone is striving to be better version of themselves and it's literally becoming a selling point like the community itself and how I feel like I'm not having this just lonely experienced in my basement but now mostly like getting this whole becoming friends on facebook. Facebook with these three four people now. They're liking stuff that I'm posting that is not even relevant if I'd Cam like I'm build that contact and that's the only reason why we've met is through fight Cam and that you know for them. It's a very social experience for the people who don't partake in it. It's maybe going to be a leader board right so we have still ways to go to make this a really truly social experience but these new innovative features are definitely doing a portion you think like a few years out from now I mean beyond Stephanie Still Nicotine artist. That's been in development for some time is not quite mass-market ready but I do see definitely some trends. They especially also fall for fitness. I mean quite a few times now that read facilitate fitness youth you see that may be also avenue that could help up to bring a bit more for social adamant into into fitness so I don't know about V._R.. Per Se Right. I think they're still going to be a challenge around wearing something on your is however I do think that an industry that is should be a source of inspiration for everyone that is building. He connected fitness. Experience is the gaming industry. 'cause you know with E.. Sports this thing is very very social did took social dynamics and even literally took it to a whole new level right so I think there's a lot of things that we can look at at the gaming industry and be like wow so that's how they created that these interactions between people I think there's going to be a lot more of that. Specifically where you can think of fitness gaming as being an evolving configuring where now you're going through this ecosystem in this virtual world and you are represented by an Avatar like you said and that avatar guitars evolving in a different way depending on your performance right so I think that aspect is really yet to be explored. I think right now we're really two dimensional which has already better than one dimensional used to be really your watching content. It's a lot of APPS are still idea. Just watching content and you consume did you can basically consumed while eating chips. Nobody will care but now sure now that it's connected. It's a two layer product. I'm having the video stream on one side but it D- experience reacts to what I'm doing. I think we can definitely push that concept to a lot more war where you know gaming in fifteen twenty years from now is going to be looked back at you know it was gaming sitting while having a remote control in your hands all the way to like a very engaging gaming experience where my body's really challenged there yeah I think I think I think that's also for you guys Stephanie One big aspect right to half that gamification going on that you wanna be not only somebody else on the oil but you WanNa beat your own output score right or your your amount of punches and so forth that's a lot to that is well for those at least those among us that really liked to half the competitive spirit in Stephanie. Also you know of applications or servings on I think so cycle I mean there. You have really more of a fun experience. They WanNa go beyond tracking showing you. Some numbers two very different experience as well which is just having fun and you know that that basically gets me to to the thing that we're starting to explore what we believe. Is You know I don't know if you've played a lot of R._p._G.'s when when you were younger or even now but that whole concept except where you know you don't know exactly where the game is going to take you and it's depending on your performance. We believe a lot in that aspect and we're lunching soon a series of what we call paths. Those pats are basically going to be think of think of it as like a video game eco-system where depending which path you've completed it unlocks a different portion of content and the content is dependent on which direction you're going and which concentra consuming and it can take you in all sorts of directions within that boxing world and that sounds fun yeah so you're going to have my different challenges and UNSEE complete market channel inch like you cannot really on the next one. I think that's that's really fun yeah yeah. We think that has a lot of potential we side already. We did that with the prospect path. It's a little bit of that but it's the content is still is still l.. Very colleague like version one right where like you just get more and more instructions as you go. We take exactly what we think. You need to hear that moment we serve it to you after we know you've completed certain things but what if you add some certain entertainment aspects of it. What if you add the certain challenges? What if you don't you haven't completed a challenge at a certain level it doesn't directly towards the same piece of content that Jesse getting that becomes a whole journey now? It's not only about getting a workout in its. Where are you in fut- camp like did you go this riled? Oh Man <music>. I'm completely over there and I even want to improve that specific skill that takes me for down the history of it and the whole culture of it and we feel very lucky that boxing is a very deep-rooted culture for basically everything like the origin agenda jump ropes in boxing all the way to you know why people are putting gloves on like it's funny. A lot of people think you're putting gloves on to not hurt the other person but it actually started to protect your hands back in bareknuckle boxing and all of these stories I learned them through a traditional gym with the chats that it was having with my coach after the workout in before two workouts I was getting lost in that culture. I became addicted to it so we kind of want to recreate that but on one app where you have everything you need on Best Simpsons restoring and in a beyond that like where do you. Where do you see fight campus going beyond that that's that's a very good question? You know like we have all sorts of predictions if you own internally in the team I think that's there's one aspect that comes out of that. It's to provide more than just a boxing bag right so think about uh now instead of having just a boxing bag what you're getting is also a smart jump rope and you getting the smart jump rope. It'll logs that whole smart jump rope module so you're not on the you know getting good at throwing the right combinations of the right time. You're actually now developing this extra skill now now. We're also adding the double N. bag which has his own purpose in in boxing. We're not adding a specific history type of like a history about a specific Friday. You can have a Mohammed Ali type of type of path where you can learn all about his life and deals fluency had and while still having workouts that are specifically on brand would what he's done right so you can go into a lot of different directions audits on that sounds really interesting to have more features but also more more accessories to the whole camp experience right end. There's this aspect that is it's very very common for people who have been at the traditional boxing gym a lot less common to the people who had just been attending a studio boxing gym is basically that that whole concept of now. I'm getting close to that culture right so I am basically becoming a fighter myself spent a lot of <hes> the fighting culture is visit on inspiration and inspirational stories how I overcame a specific struggle right like that's that's really ingrained in the boxing culture. What's interesting there is that if you look on Youtube motivational speakers or like you know millions of meals followers his wide they just tell you something that helps you go through your day? They help you like become this better version of yourself and you can like people are really watching the same you know like the twenty Robbins of this world and you know all these inspirational motivational speakers in the traditional boxing gyms. These guys are are there. It's the gym has a very strong culture but it's just like you have to attend the gym to get these elevating type of speeches. Now you can make them part of your experience at home right now. How do you hope to replicate that? How do you integrate that aspect? The Story Pot is going to we like a cut scene like video game that you know reveals like some interesting historic moments of fact yeah so so we believe a lot in short form content not in longtime content so we wanna build short videos short videos that you can listen to either. Neither just before your workout or you want to listen to that may be on your way to work right. Are you on the bus or you on your in the subway you wanNA listen to those pieces easily digestible not a forty five minute commitment but does come in series we have we're looking because of the initial product we have. We have a pretty wide network of people that are achieving a lot of great things in in this ecosystem of boxing so we want to give them on camera you WanNa give them to tell their stories. We WanNa build the story arcs with them so as you're going through this you're getting dripped of these short form series about personalities that you like about stories that you like Gotcha. <hes> I WANNA move to a final part of our interview which is a quick fire round so basically a half a handful of questions. I'm going to ask you one by one and religious bond. John's you know like a quick answer from you out of the top hat <hes> not really thinking too deeply or too long about any of those sounds good yeah alright so besides five Cam <hes> of like any other fitness APPs or wearable devices that you're currently using using your routine <hes> I'm a user of Strada Byron me two to three times a week on top of my boxing workout. I I really enjoy a lot of the features on their big inspiration for us. <hes> I know the founder as well Marganian. He's I think building amazing putting amazing platform and anything else <hes>. I've tried a few smart scales actually I'm you know I wanNA get shape scale so please send me one but your bedroom <hes>. I think that the wait is really just the first level in it's very misleading. When it comes to progress in your journey you have to pretend that I'm gonNA looking forward on those new generations of scale coming out on the market which <hes> what would you say is like one thing that most people actually get wrong about its fitness or maybe even boxing general so a lot of people think it's all all in the arms which is completely untrue? It's probably solicited a lot more your legs than than you could think of so a lot of people are starting their boxing journey thinking. It's only an upper body workout. It's actually a very full body workout. Your legs are going to work out a lot. I would say the other thing that a lot of people get wrong is how your body actually is supposed to change like you will gain weight if you're getting more in shape building muscle. That doesn't mean that you're actually going backward at all. This is a phase where you building out your your your muscle mass before you actually lead out so like a lot of people will start doing some straining and then they'll be like men again seven pounds which is actually a good resulted they have been conscious about their eating but they're going to get this gorge and just going to go back to cargo. Which is the wrong move at that point? You should just keep going. I mean that's the whole point I mean you've got to gain weight. If you want to gain muscle rights if not you already we'll be doing something wrong exactly and can you share like <hes> habits on that really deeply influence you in your health or wellness fitness routine. I think I think that the worst thing that has happened in fitness in why people kept failing at it is to think that you have to change everything at once now stood on the at will eat well work out five times a week restrict myself on alcohol and do all these things at once. It's a recipe for disaster. You know that's the reason why yeah most people fail when they go on a diet because radically tried to change entire life style and it's just too much exactly and they also targeting things that they really care about like they wanna have a drink with friends every now and then they really liked the type of food is for them. It's super hard to change there yet. They're starting their what I advise everyone literally. I had a talk with my mom three days ago again because she felt back in in her old habits of my whole speech was like just choose one habit internalize it. Just one start like eating just one meal like one healthy meal a day. If you have trouble doing that to start there once you internalize that habit by the end of the year you will have taken three hundred sixty five good meals and it's GonNa make a big difference as soon as internalized it a month later. It's really easier to to to get to the second habit to change it has to be sustainable. You have to try to aim for something that I will be okay doing for the next two months and then the next two months and then the next two months and that's a really very both vice to give and <hes> can you also recommend the book <hes> potentially influence you Hugh Channel Block to our listeners that you found particularly useful in your in your career but maybe also in fitness or health yeah I was. I wasn't a big fan of the flower body when he came out why because a lot of it was actually based on on results of course he was based around you know Tim Ferriss results which is only one individual but a lot of it was really you know counterintuitive to wet a lot of people thought and it's super deep in in terms of like it goes all the way from you know nutrition nutrition to supplements all the way to the exercise. You should be doing in how your body is actually changing towards that so I just felt even testosterone and sexual drive. Even there's a whole chapter on that like you can get lost in that book for a while and you'll have your content to experiment on for years you know for sure and he's probably one of the few that and especially at the time of the writing of the book he actually was one of the few that put everything to attest riots right doing experiments almost like start up and Tallahassee not but then also running you know the comparison between the different methodologies to really see what was working best which something that has stood to the state pretty wear right. There's a lot of black magic out there. What does work and what is really you know using the best S. results absolutely and <hes> I guess besides Tim Ferriss <hes>? Would you say this like anybody else. In fitness or health that you know has been an influence on you in terms of like figures hell no or even brands. I think that <hes> so it's it's it's a little bit different right 'cause like <hes> as a founder and looking at what cross it has built and you know it's amazing how they've taken a concept and mate made it movement and that's something that is very hard to build a worldwide movement centered around a workout probably honestly when the hardest work out of ever tried dryden so I respected a lot right. It's very hard to do to take one concept like that in like take a workout start with the idea of that muscle confusion is future although it to building events where now it's on E._S._p._N.. And you're filling up stadiums to come watch athletes perform. I think I respect what they've done a lot. You know it's incredible anyways that concludes quickfire round. Thank you so much for maintenance time just to round up our interview. If you WANNA get a five cam. Where can they get one right? Now I out so you're GonNa our website it's W._w._w.. Dot Join Fight Kemp Dot Com and you can purchase directly on there and it's available U._S.. Only or can you get it outside of the U._S.. It is U._S.. Only for now we're getting quite a bit of demand in Europe up in Canada but we will delay until we're ready to provide an Ablett's experience there Gotcha well. That's the most difficult Canadian France yes absolutely yep anything else that he would like to share with our audience now now. Thanks a lot for inviting me on the show what's amazing to see all the other responders that you had on the show readings powering while thank you so much coming on the show to be an absolute fion- here map later Martin thanking they thank you for having tuned in to twenty minute fitness today. It's been an absolute bliss is to learn from Khalil and how the got onto the founding of fide camp going through struggles in are really seeing how they found their own niche of really developing on that experience of having a Boxing Gym Plaza Coach right in the center center of your own home which is great. We can't wait to try it out for ourselves and our team and yeah I mean thanks so much again for Khalil to come on his show also big shout out to our wonderful producer Lee laso without whom this show wouldn't really be able to happen and if.

eps.049 - LIVE - IS BITCOIN DEAD!?

"What's up cream Radio Ismat Joe Blackburn? Joined with me is are the managers. Can't Paulie what's going on Jim. Oh my goodness what a week. The game boys pack it up. Qurna go home bitcoins done see Aleida a `love' `love' Jim. Great great great use of that awesome system. You've got back over there well what's up. WBZ Say thanks Jim for that. Awesome intro in that that welcome. Obviously obviously bitcoins. Could've been a little bit steadier. Seventy one hundred seventy one fifty. I feel like if we stay at this price for pretty bullish actually moving up at some point. Of course it's opinion. I'm always bullish Polish. Shut up jam. I don't WanNa hear all that Jim shaking his head for those less. Now I've been reading. I've been reading the facebook posts. I've been reading a a game over dude back it up. bitcoins done bitcoins bitcoins. Dead and buried my dude. I did hear some things but we'll get into that here shortly as people may notice here for the Thanksgiving. I'm at my folks house. I'm borrowing my dad's office. I'm sitting here trying to make Internet connection work down here in the state of Alabama Obama and Jim. I know you're back home in your typical Jimmy Fallon Studio so As this holiday we can get caught up you know and we get there on Thursday and happy could drive the be respectful. Losing me. Now I get you back your back. Yeah be respectful and have a safe holiday. I mean this is a holiday for the the. US folks we're talking worldwide. But I mean in the stop and take a second to just think about what. They're thankful for the United States and for me. That's how foolish I am on Bitcoin and Jim's got all these really crazy ideas because old new Jim. Oh there's been scouring Internet finding everything he can about. bitcoin is going down to two thousand hours. So tell me what you've learned. Yeah Oh yeah you know what I did see. Some people. Saint Two thousand a lot of people were saying thirty five hundred and then it'll bounce awesome. Then it'll die like it's GonNa Bounce just die again But yeah you know what two thousand and I feel like that could be too because the price is going down pack it up. BITCOINS joins over game over man. It was fun while lasted. Or you know Y- Gem I the thing is I understand and I appreciate the way. I don't think Jim actually feels feels that way. People were gonNA pretend like he does tonight. I don't think that's actually the case. But I love his ability to be the devil's advocate here. And we're GONNA have a slight discussion about this. You know your your thanksgiving. You seem bitcoin go down. Guess what twenty seventeen. We had an awesome Thanksgiving everybody but that twenty seventeen. The price was just about where it is today. Jim and that's what's funny. Is what a difference that feeling is because we were coming from the bottom of what we consider a low but it was really a high at that point which was at twelve fourteen. Fifteen twenty five hundred three thousand five thousand or runs next thing. You know November twenty seventeen Jim. Guess what. We're at six thousand bucks. Well guess what two years later. We're at six seven thousand bucks. Guess what last year I I think what we were around six or seven thousand bucks. You know I mean it's it's been pretty consistent how this the November's have been around this price regardless list of which sit at what sediment you feel. It's been steady at this price. Isn't that interesting. Yeah Yeah I mean I have heard the other side of it is people say it's just the holiday holiday sale. It's just bitcoin. Though the Black Friday came early for bitcoin still just slashing prices. So you can get in on it now. Is there like you mentioned you know Thanksgiving you know we're we're. We're on the cusp here. Now for the people that do go home for Thanksgiving and you you try to talk to your family about crypto. Now if they get a little wind of this you have to try to explain yourself now with this. I guess the Fund is the right word shirt regularly yet. No I think it's a great question especially because you know. We have bitcoin for Christmas right. So mouse felt myself. Jim Josh Donaldson View. Others Ashley Meredith. Obviously in all the great work with mouse vogue is the developers. You know we really All pitched in our thoughts ideas we put together all these things to be able to have this conversation with folks and although it says Bitcoin for Christmas I mean it's irrelevant with the holiday is or whether it's a holiday or not. It's just a place to go and be able to have resources that allow you to not only see. Hey this is a way to to be able to Explain certain information but the guide allow others to figure it out for themselves. which I think's really special? It's important that we recognize that. This is hard to understand. It's a concept that people we are ready probably have a generic idea about and if they had thought really highly of it already began. So everybody you're talking to hasn't bought end right folks so that that population that people that have not bought in they they need to be spoken to and you don't have to fight with them to get your point across right if you start arguing you're going to be like oh big ones right and there'd be like bitcoins wrong just because people just argue they all have this idea that we're all on the Internet still and at and a little bit of money instead of flavor you're GonNa get a recipe for disaster so handling yourself properly really important Jim to to your point here. I think it's very important time for people to get caught up refresh on the basics of bitcoin. Why does it matter? How does it work? What is the expectations? And what was Sushi's original intentions. What we're his? What was the reasons why he was doing this? And if you think back people if you go back to two thousand eight in there in the financial crisis does it surprise you. That two thousand nine you know the to- she's worked began and then by two thousand ten January two thousand ten. You know we were really up and going going in two thousand nine. We're up going January. And then she did. We made our our first one year anniversary of a a working product. That's why we are here today right so think about that not. Bitcoin was literally born from that moment in time that financial crisis whoever they are that person he or she or non binary as as Actually likes to remind me It it's irrelevant. Who Said Oh she is I just know this? They saw that there was a problem. They fix it they say. Here's a solution rather than complained rather than vote for this person that person who has done nothing they just fixed it and we're used but yeah but that's kind of my thing though. Is that the monkey wrench into the idea of Bitcoin for Christmas. Because does it make it a tougher sell right now because even people in the community acts acts like it's dead and I understand that just because the highs and lows of you know watching the charts and all that but it's almost harder to talk about now when you have it's like you have more of a barrier to go up against the try to explain someone not in the space because if you tell them about bitcoin and then they google it and they see we all these articles that are about how bitcoin going down the you know how do you do. You have tips to overcome that or just kind of focused more on the other positives positives behind something like rather than the pricing yet. Though I mean obviously as we all know don't want to get shot Josh Danielson good to see you man. Tim Pace AC- the Andrews on there. I was just arguing. We I think we were kind of arguing about Tesla but we really we weren't. We're kind of saying the same thing so good to see you as always ap but look the barriers the expectations of a conversation. How to to to get in how to how the new words it comes down to this gym Jim and this is my honest opinion? Is that you can't force this concept on people now for Bitcoin for Christmas. If we're smart what we're doing is buying five or ten dollars for our friends and family and giving that away. Bitcoin for Christmas is my in my opinion. It stands for me giving you Jim or getting my brothers or somebody. Bitcoin and there is no better way of getting through somebody then saying here. Here's some bitcoin for free. Even if it's just five bucks right yes everybody not not not. Everybody's able to incapable of doing that. I get it. I'm not in your to pass judgment or say say one thing or the next I can at least portray this image though in that as a magic. Everybody in crypto giving a little bit of Bitcoin and how how many people are going to have them start paying attention to what bitcoins doing and if they start seeing maybe it's going up maybe it's going down. Maybe they're starting to to put into perspective. How this thing works? Maybe they're trying to send it to their new bitcoin wallet because they wanted to add some more. Maybe they're now able to explain to somebody. Hey I got bitcoin and it becomes popular. Hey look someone gave it. I've got it actually. I think it's up a little bit. Like five like fifty cents. They only give me two dollars. But you know that's that's the beauty of this whole thing is that it's it's it's always been you know peer to peer even marketing right. There's nobody marketing Bitcoin Actually I take that back If you haven't heard or seen it yet folks you're going to see a very soon. And that is the white furred Verte. Football Club from the Premier League is Bitcoin on their sleeve. You know and I mean. Think about that. If you're in the premier league every time someone from that team scores and they raised their hand and excitement. You're going to see big went on that shoulder. A Little Birdie told me you can get more information about that on Friday show by the way. Oh Nice be on the look out. So yes and of course. I just interviewed them as Jim. The the One of the producers and editors the entire show. WHO's listening to every single word probably more than me You know he's he so kindly let us know that. That's the Friday show so be excited about that folks. 'cause it's GONNA be exciting. Hey Do you think that's a decent understand like that's the way I portray it to answer your question like what do you think Jim. Is that good enough in your opinion. Yeah I think so and I guess it's just the tough thing like putting it in those terms though is if you give like I'm just thinking more from the I guess quote normally perspective affective because I i. I'm not quite enormous. I'm still a little new to the space but I'm not enormous me. I'm thinking some that only knows of bitcoin because they see the headlines and they vaguely no. It's a thing the tough sell. I feel like especially right now with with the price. The price is always going to be volatile. But like with more on a downtrend. Downtrend is if you give someone for Christmas like Hey. Here's fifty bucks in Bitcoin. And then they look at it the next day and it's like thirty Bucks Bitcoin to them they're like This is weird weird and does that like immediately turn them off or you just have to really just keep pitching the other side of it and rather than the pricing well. Well there's two sides of this number one. You should know their address if you sit the Bitcoin so you can keep adding to it. Like a dog barks right like I mean. They'll never see a fall right like if he really needed to address that but yes to your point. It's a very serious one and I agree like if they just see constantly falling. which is what happened to a lot of people including myself? I gave it to my father in law take. My brother-in-law gave it to you. My friends family and they saw it go down and they mentioned that to me several times. And it's not unwarranted. Right it you know I put Michael Sausage a post op or is comment. I think it's really relevant. He said would be safe to say that. People's general perception is that it's not a future of currency but rather a specula- speculative asset and I say that's absolutely what it is right now. I mean that's the perception isn't perception's reality if you're looking to grow something and so whether you're a celebrity TV host and you're trying to get the next big GIG or your musician and everybody thinks you've music sucks when I was gonNA play or no one's GonNa hire you know who's GonNa Bring you about. No one's GonNa buy or use you. If they think you're speculative assets keeps going down so great point Mike on whether she wrote that But you know I look at this like I have never had a problem at least explaining the basics and what bitcoin able to do gyp right and we've conversation numerous accounts like you came in here a little bit. I don't WanNA say risk is you're pretty level headed dude but you know you came into a new space as someone who I you know we. We talked about you coming on the show because I know how entertaining engaging in what's we unleash you to this crowds this group. You're going to be a a national treasure. Is your to bitcoin space right. You're just really exciting. Jimmy Fallon style. I appreciate so much you know. Now you hyper me up over here thank you. I also compared you Jimmy Fallon which I hate so you breed 'em all yourself. He's literally right there fair enough. We talked about this every time about the finish statement up. It's this it's that. Is bitcoin spectacle of it is. It's absolutely speculative speculative even if you don't want it to be speculative too bad. Had your speculating. That is going to go up. At some point you know and you know so because it is what it is and because it's it's that in that area once it becomes was non speculative it becomes a very stable asset. And you know let's be real people the fact that is volatile even when it's negatively volatile and when it's going down it's still leaves these hope that it's GonNa be volatile back up right. So that's we gotta take the good with bad because it can go down also allows it to go up. Yeah yeah like Tim Pace Ace in the chat whether they look at it and at seventy five. That's a great point because that gets people even more excited and I'm glad you brought up giving it to your family members in the path and I mean I'm sure you're known amongst your family as the Crypto Guy. Because you are the Crypto Guy Your your your Maine Man Joe Blackburn. The cryptovest belongs all of us but especially especially blogs Joe Blackburn. But do you have those people you know people. There are a lot of people that talk about how they dread the political discussion or something coming when I get home but When they go home for the holidays do you have someone in your family? That's ready to like pounce on you every Thanksgiving or Christmas to be like ha ha. What's up with your bitcoin? Coin now bud or someone who has been like on you about it and how. It's like not a thing and all that shit see it's really interesting thing like I'm I am the person who does that to everybody else right. And I'm so versed in arguments in so composed in being able to articulate. I thought that nobody messes with me right. If they're going to talk about it they're going to do it behind my back which is fine. Because I'll find him anyways and I'll hear about it but I don't I really don't I don't have the fighters now. I do have friends that I'll see during like Thanksgiving break that they're like. Oh bitcoin didn't they fall from my twenty thousand and they just make jokes. But it's I don't really deal with that the hateful a lot of others do have to and so. I'm more concerned about that political discussion before. I am a bitcoin discussion but I also have a lot of people who support me and they also have seen what bitcoin because I wasn't talking about them about Bitcoin with them at twenty thousand. I was talking to bitcoin talking to them about bitcoin. When it was five six seven hundred right so get a little bit of credibility with between there between those those this price about mark's? Yeah Yeah and I guess the tie it all in it comes down until like you know. Never mind just the normies because again. I'm I'm basing it from a newer perspective and I see a lot. The people in the community get pretty down because the pricing which I understand you know people. It's an investment people have money and it's it's like a lot to ride on sometimes but it he feels like people get super negative or just Kinda shut down a bit and then I feel like so what are what are your tips to keep the fire alive so to speak in some of these not as exciting times so you know we have to change changed the discussion and Jim. That was a really good point. You just made to like the conversation has to be able to continue right. There has to be that moment where you as an individual you'll figure out these are. These are the points that really matter about bitcoin. And that's an ideological and political comment con. It's a political conversation and and I mean it's not a political in a way that Americans politics. It's just a complete change in the way that you want to be governed and how you're explaining that to somebody else. Why that's that's important to you so mixing that you know without being confrontational and shutting somebody off? It's very very delicate. And the moment you start talking about if you're talking about price you kinda remove all the politics right. If you're talking about ideology it come. It becomes a political comment. It becomes a political conversation ideological conversation and audio ideology and politics often. You know that's kind of the same thing right. You know. We find out real quickly where people stand when you start giving perspective on why you believe in something or why you want this candidate or something right and it is no different than when bitcoins doing. Because when you start talking about your your privacy people can relate to that people can understand. Oh shoot yeah part privacy. Oh look at what facebook did and they had to go to Congress and explain themselves look at Cambridge Analytica. Look at all these other things things that have huge effects on our life right now. How do we change that? How do we take hold of that in cryptocurrency blockchain bitcoin allow that concept of starts seeping in right and so to me? It's supporting a certain style of interacting with people that I don't want to interact with right. They're going to try to interact with me one way or the next whether it be a marketer whether it be a a hacker whether it be somebody how do I protect myself in the most ways possible and this is a very basic way explaining. I know ashes watching. She could probably say thousand things to me right now but how I'm saying it wrong but I like like to keep this really simple. When you're opening up the conversation it has to be number one interesting and number two if you're gonNA fight with them they're not gonNA walk away with a pleasant attitude? Yeah I mean I have. Jim was the last argument with something about something with somebody that you already kind of disagreed with or did really find as a relevant or even maybe even then a credible point and be like. Oh well we just had this huge argument argument not now. I completely understand rare. especially if you're getting into Internet argument demand like it's even it's going to be even worse absolutely so you know it's funny because we briefly talked about ripple just right before we went live but I'll bring ripple up if I if I talk about P with somebody who does not know anything about bitcoin or Crypto. They're always like Oh yeah but but extra ripple and that's something I'll well listen. This is something I'll listen to and it's so funny to me. I mean not. Because they they they don't understand the reasons why I may have certain prejudices against it or whatnot but you know they. Hey look at it. Even though it's had a very similar path than going up and then coming back down as Bitcoin heck the bitcoin is gone down less than go has from. Its all time high which was three dollars and you know like sixty cents or something and now. Today's like twenty five twenty eight twenty nine cents something along those lines and you know I bring rip or they bring up rebel to me and it's a very different conversation because they feel so much more safe about potentially what ripple might do for the whole world and it's simply because of the affiliation with what banks are doing right. It makes them feel safe. It's familiar familiar. It's those same things that that crypto struggles with because the US isn't great ripple is familiar. It's something that they could feel like they can relate to or it makes it a little bit of sense and it because it has a practical application from the minimum that they know about it minimal amount that they know about it but even though that has such a negative in horrible you know Price price differentiation from. It's all time high the price of this today it they don't they don't take into effect that the same things that they do for Bitcoin like they forgive ripple certain things which Chom fine with forgive him get him in let them learn about the space the ripple. That's fine by me because a lot of them will then take except like. Oh Wow I see what the space is doing. So I don't have a problem here. Expertise even lower than I thought. Twenty two cents right. That's what Tim says anyways but Sorry for the long Turner. That's completely fine and pardon my ignorance a and obviously you don't have to get to do it but what is it about ripple that defended more or that is more familiar. Is it just what what is is it. Just well let's let's back up a little bit ago ripple and Ex Arpey are technically not the same thing. Okay okay there's a difference the the the the ripple network ripple blockchain okay is is is different than what the X.. RPI token is right now. I will admit sometimes oftentimes when I'm transferring. A certain amount of of of anything of of any CRYPTO is consolidated in the ripple. And then I send it because is fast and I love being able to explain to people how fast ripple as I have no problem problem with the the use case ripple It it exists. There's there's something and it to me the only use case I found a ripple is literally you know. Sitting my tokens for point eight. The point be and then disseminating back into other other coins or wherever or caching something out of I need to but you know ripple I do I don't want to hate all on ripple and say everything. The thing about them is bad. But what makes people feel familiar and what they okay themselves with is that it has affiliation with banks that is built around around transfers for banks from bank to bank transactions at a large scale right and to me. That's a really strong and great great conversation opener and I hate to encourage ripple in any way but if that's the way that you have to have a conversation with somebody to at least have them take you seriously I think that's okay right now. I mean I go on and on about things I don't like about ripple I I definitely have issues as what crypto and blockchain and and Bitcoin are supposed to or what they were intended to be. But that is that's very quickly dissipating like the blockchain is for whatever use case you want to as long as it's legal right and I got no issues whatsoever with with people having a conversation about about report early on right. It's just important that you also mentioned why there's differences and that's that should be its own show. That's probably something I need to bring Ashworth back on so she can explain. She doesn't really well. So yeah you think X.. Surpise going to rise from the BTC ashes or what since BTC's dead. And all I have to have to remember that we're on camera here I would definitely Glenn not here lies. Bitcoin a good run saying years. Ten Years Right Patrick's gotTa kill you in the early beloved. We are gathered here today to lay the rest bitcoin. I want straight crypto currency that drops below seven thousand dollars dollars and everyone says the sky was falling anyways. Yeah that was just like wicca. Further record everybody. Jim was actually playing the organ there so ashes on strike affair enough Exactly ten they only want it because they think it will make them rich. Yeah and that's a good point. Here's the thing. Yeah I mean if you get something twenty a sensor whatever yeah there's a lot of potential upside I suppose I- ripple has a at least one major run in it because ripple does have that quote quote unquote affiliation with the banks at least perception. I don't want to encourage anybody to buy by ripple and hold ripple long-term or anything like I said I use it. I sent from Point A.. Point B. I it's fast. That's what I like about. It ends there right does ripple have really big potential to at least reach. Its all time high. I personally don't think ripple will get much higher than it ever has already but there's a lot of space between here and there and if it just he reaches halfway to what it was which was three dollars and like fifty seventy cents. I don't remember you know that's almost two bucks. A dollar seventy right. And it's twenty two cents right now. Wow that's a lot. So on a investment side you know on a personal level. I look at that. I could see why it might be enticing. But I've been saying that since fifty cents and below right and all it's done is dropped dropped fifty percent in value or more at this case so when is a good time to buy it. I don't know if there's ever a good time to buy it because it's so I mean weird. It's weirder than all the other cryptocurrencies currency's my opinion. Yeah I mean again. I don't know a ton I it's definitely the one I always hear about. And even before I was Ah Looking more into the community in space. I'd seen it but again I I'm not a no way an expert obviously this. I'm not giving an investment advisor but you know on a personal level again. You know if I'm looking at ripple then look at Star lumens accelerate And the women's is something that I I love what they did last month when they burned. You know a third of their supply or even more I thought that was really nice of them to do. It said at least and I was really impressed with how they did that. An adult surprise Tony Body. They were doing it. You know so it was cool. You know I so if you're GONNA look into one of the aucoin like ripple at least go look at stellar but we could move on past that I just think that people should take ripple seriously in conversation because it's very familiar. People be prepared. Explain to them. Don't have to fight with them. Maceo don't buy ripple it sucks. No Man let them have their conversation if that interests them let them have that way of a bridge. It's an entry point into the blockchain space. And you you know if that's what it takes. Let them do it man. You know they'll figure it out or they won't mill. You're also kind of saying like you don't quite understand if someone can like try to shit on Bitcoin. And then and because they're like well you know look at ripple you know what I'm saying because it's like they're going through their own growing pains and drops and rises as well. It's all it's all kind of part of the space in general right. Yes I I'm hesitant to go into too much detail at on a big level but it does it does piss me off that people are so okay with having. This is where the media comes in the media is not against ripple the way that it likes to make make fun of Bitcoin. Right Adam obeys here everybody. I post thing here extra. Here's his comments. I'm unaffiliated affiliated with With any of these comments whatsoever and so within radio the laser Dude Adam obey see. He's saying yep now Adams good dude. He's been part of the community for a long time. Look let me let me give the extra appeal Army props if you literally attack them they they will forever never ever forget you and they will always be there to remind you that you said you hated ripple so you always built a careful so anyone have ripple radio DOT com. Ouch but that's really funny. Someone's going out now. Someone parked on it. You could buy it for thirty thirty three hundred dollars. If you're in the market guys fair fair enough all right Jim so let me let me ask you because I think your perspective and this is not just relevant. I think it is the perspective active. That is probably most necessary to at least Here here from because you're in between like you believe in you. You like this space enough to have interest. And you've sustained some interest. Chris and you're in you're out. You're still here right you know. And and your banking on your time being worth it at some point whether it be actually owning some some bitcoin cryptocurrency or participating bitcoin radio and being producing the show. And and and editing. All these podcasts. You know I mean it's not just a money space for you. There's some things that attracted you. How would you explain blinded like and you don't have to go into details but like do you find this as an embarrassment to you right now like if someone asks you you're like Oh man I hate having explain this or are you still fired up does this? Even you've been concerned you in a little bit no I mean mostly because You know hearing from people like you and other people in the space aced and of course listening to Bitcoin radio and hearing Whether it be I mean obviously we had said on this very show in the past like bitcoin. Bitcoin isn't necessarily the same as blockchain but just knowing a little bit about the technology where things are headed. I understand that kind of chain. Well you know what I mean like. It's not like bitcoin. has its own things in blockchain as its own things as well like seperation of two and also I guess ask from having some throughout the summer and seeing what happens like I like obviously this kind of on the lower and from my personal experience where I've seen it but I'm past the point of like staring at the price all day like like the first like month or so that I got a little bitcoin whereas I was just looking at the pricing and charts and being like. Oh what's this. Oh what's that now. It's like I'm like shit that sucks. It's down but I'm not like concerned -cerned really and I don't know I guess that's a good thing until maybe unless I ride all the way down to zero and then I'm like fuck I shoulda the known shouldn't listen to Joe Blackburn. Well on that you know. It's just like Jim. You got in at a time period. Heard where for the most part people were so pessimistic but they were momentarily happy right now because bitcoin had rose all the way up to almost fourteen thousand dollars. It was amazing. It was great to see that. Come back and if you backtrack all the way back and we bring this up several times at least a month you know if not every episode that we were at thirty to thirty three hundred dollars at one point this year. Yes that's the other piece to just knowing that where it was before Laura. I know it's still kind of coming out ahead of the game and then kind of seeing where it's going to go from there so even if you go back to January of twenty seventeen right and you say command. Bitcoin was at eight hundred bucks and then fast forward January twenty eighteen. We were like you know I don't know Eighteen eight thousand bucks right and then we came all the way back down and January. Twenty nine thousand nine. We were at three thousand something bucks right. There's one big big huge difference in all of those prices if you go back from the very beginning of Bitcoin all the way to today. There's only one year that that ever happened happened right. I mean it's literally just one year and it was January twenty eighteen years. You have major price differences. But they've all been positive price differences for the most part. It's just that one anomaly. And if you go back and remind people hey January two thousand eighteen or twenty eight hundred dollars you know January in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred thirty five hundred bucks and he just eliminate that one huge price runup bad. You're not having this conversation at all. The worst thing that happened to Bitcoin and the best talk bitcoin is it went to almost twenty K.. Right that makes sense. Yeah Yeah and again from Michael in the chat. You must watch the price all day if you want to understand it. It's fluid ebb and flow prices. Part of its allure right now. I kind of get that. What I'm saying is like I have? I guess I'm not GonNa say the me I'm I'm holding. I'M NOT GONNA say the Meam says I'm just GonNa say it now. I'm not GONNA do that. That's that's to me now. I think bottle normal Normal so I know I'm just holding so I get what you're saying like that's Kinda understanding like what the market's at but I'm not at the point where I'm like stressing over right. I mean I guess if I was like a day trader or people that do that type stuff. Obviously it's all different story But I guess I'm just confident enough that I feel like it's GonNa Bounce back a you know the back story on Hoddle Jim since I mean sometimes I forget that you're you're probably not aware to all how all the stuff started are you. Were you around. Assume I. I assumed it was something like tone in the video game world where people would just mistype than it would travel and become much. Share this with you okay. So so I'll talk when Shirt now is going to say okay. Let me find the post. Let me find the post. I'm getting folks. I'm honored to be able to be the person that explains this suggest history. I actually kind of cool all right. Yep So hoddle which I thought when I first got in salt for the first time I thought I thought it meant something like hold on for dear life right and that obviously is You know it makes sense. And I'm not the only person who thinks that you know it looks like an acronym it doesn't say hold I mean if we're just holding something we would literally just say. Hold it right you know. But there's a reason why this exists. So I'm you know I'm going to send this to you right now. It is bitcoin. Talk Dot Org Forum. Hold on I hear Shit. Goes down the big Wayne talk form though he said it was yes. Bitcoin Talk Dot Org and that was the the original. Bitcoin you know. Hang out place. That was the decrypt coins writer of. Its Day right so here. It is the origin of Hoddle. And I'm going to send it to you and you. You should even read it out loud. How about that? I'm going to put it in the chat up. Actually just ask just put it on there. But I'm also putting in the private jet crash if you can click on that Jim I think you'll or copy paste that. Why don't you read it out loud for us? So is the the main. I don't have to read all these threads right. I just have to read this first thing. Yup and I want to read read the title. Okay keep mine everybody. If you're new to Crypto Ash Ashes posted the link But you can find all between bitcoin. Talk Dot Org work It's it's just search talk dot Org Hoddle and And two thousand thirteen separate t two thousand thirteen almost a year. Go ten. AM my time. I don't know what time it was where he's from He wrote this. I am hobbling go ahead and he obviously missed everybody. Just the record. Yeah Yeah Okay title. I am heartily I typed that title twice because I knew it was wrong. The first time still wrong what jeffs out at lesbian bar. BTC crashing crashing. Why am I holding Elia? Why because I'm a bad trader and I know bad trader? Yeah you good traders. There's can spot the highs and lows pit pat fifty wing Guangming Baton McMillan Mill No Bucks Chairman Lien. Their million in bucks. Sure no problem bro. Likewise the weekends are like Ohio. It's going down. I'm GonNa sow and then they're like doc. Oh God my astle when the smart traders who know what they're doing by back in but you know what I'm not part of that group when the traders by back in a Mardi par wait when the trade back in. I'm already part of the market capital. So guess who you're Cheating Day traders not me those time threads saying ooh you should have sold. Yeah no shit no shit. I should've saw I should've sold mall before every fell bob moments before every by but you know what not everybody is cool is as cool as you. You only sell in a bear market. If you're a good day trader. An illusion knew the people in between hall in a zero-some game such as this traders can only take your money of yourself so I've had some whisky actually on the bottle. It's spelled whisky. Whatever sue me but only if it's payable and BTC so what did you say man? This is great story. I mean I guess I was Kinda correct I was a little right. I knew it was like something to do with probably Typo but yeah I like that. He the stories a little bit deeper than that because he kind of saw the Typo but he was just he was is drunk he was just had it with this kind of had it with it. But he's also given in and resigned himself to the life he's living and spilled his guts out on a form orm everyday appreciate that now and Jim. Obviously I should have shared that with you in private private. So you're not seeing for the first time but I think it's catcher that and it's raw element you know but to me that's a really important aspect of where we are today like. That's they I that mentality is the holders mentality right. That's the way that you should be thinking about in a lot of ways. You're I'm not. I'm already part the mark capital. I'm not adding to or taking away from it right and guess what if everybody just quits stop selling bitcoin. I know Ashley Argue with me on this but if you just quit selling your bitcoin folks becomes more rare and if everybody just stopped selling bitcoin it would almost be priceless like there would be no way to put it market value. On right right you gotTa have some cell but just enough just to keep the price going up right. Stop Selling Your bitcoin traders. This is really on you. You know when when when price goes down it's the traders is the sellers Utah Utah causing your go down and this community small enough where you could pretty much go find everybody who sallied Bitcoin for the most part and you can see the wallets that are dumping their bitcoin. Bitcoin and therefore you know you should. You should be really You should be really aware that you're hurting everybody. When you're selling that much but nevertheless it's free market you can do whatever you want? And that's just my opinion. You can do whatever the hell you want to do. I can't stop it. Yeah Fair enough. But you're taking food out of my child's mouth who just being dramatic I do you take it out of my child's house arrest In Tim obviously in terms of trade or one of the great ones. He's somebody who I respect respected journey and I think it's amazing obviously trade myself and I'll sell bitcoin. I got paid for something you know so I mean I'm not immune to to selling bitcoin. I just think that you know the traders focused on the price to an extent that it really manipulates it. Down Right people are going to assume it's going down so they're trading and they're selling more than they're buying right now because they expected go down because the sustainable influx of new money. It just doesn't there and so by default you're not going to have the Bulls win more than the bears. You're just going to have the Bulls win in massive droves for short amounts of time because the bears will drive it back down and that's the problem I have with it all. Fuck the bears right it. Yup Yeah in every cell is a by everybody has a cell. Liquidity is crucial. I understand that concept but what if we did not sell I mean it just makes it harder to buy it makes it more rare and at some point we're going to be in a situation where it is rare and people are not like how how I mean you could always go find gold right but people aren't just taking gold the gold market and Saint by my gold and then buying it back or selling selling gold and buying it back. No people do trade gold absolutely right but but they're not doing this on a on the magnitude of Of the way that Bitcoin is at least in the in the sense in they. If you compare the amount of people buying and selling into the actual size of the cryptocurrency space and then take the gold space amount of people who have bought and the amount of people who are trading it. It's a much shoe. It's a huger way way bigger a massively. Bigger amount in crypto than there is in the golden silver markets that are traders that way so well at at the end of the day. Then do we panic or do we not panic. No you just wait until everybody realizes. Bitcoin is the thing to have again. And then it reestablishes a new a new bottom autumn and a brand new all time high and I think that all time highest one hundred thousand dollars very is there a price point where it's okay to panic. Let's say how do you go if it's if it's below if it's at like twenty five hundred. Do we panic a little bit. Well that would mean that we lost our previous bottom right so a little concern. Obviously when you're at twenty five hundred dollars compared to seven thousand dollars at twenty five hundred our bitcoin you know every hundred dollars is a lot more of a percentage than it is right now right Orange Virginia to buy more well it is I mean. Look what if you told people people in July that you could buy Bitcoin at twenty one hundred dollars right now set of fourteen thousand. How would people feel so the relativity of the the the price ice is is immediate for people right and look? I also agree with Michael What he just said margin trading killing the Kripa space? I think it does bring a really negative additive in pessimistic. Bearish tone to the whole space. Because you're you're first off your trade with Bitcoin not yours you're borrowing and secondly you know the crypto exchanges They want you to lose right and You Know I. It just adds to this negative sentiment and long-term you'd a lot of newbies go and Blues Bitcoin and then it goes to people who are going to sell it you know rather than hold it. Most people who go and lose bitcoin exchanges are not you know season traders obviously because those people know how to limit themselves not how to take big losses. They know how to to set themselves up for wins and be happy when they're up one percent rather than fifty percent you know some people expect and a hundred dollars and you want to make a thousand. That's four hundred percent profit folks can happen. Sure you gotta be exactly right though every every time you can't lose and you gotTa make sure stop losses and you know if you're only bet with two hundred eighty bucks. Fifty Bucks isn't enough. Even though fifty bucks on two hundred fifty s twenty percent you know shit I mean I it's relative but it's you know people lose that when they go to Al do it. Look I got one hundred extra dollars in Crypto. Guess what I'm doing I'm GonNa go roll my dice on the Great. BITCOIN exchange called oil. If I was allowed to it'd be I'd go to bit Max. And then one hundred x one hundred hours and try to make a thousand bucks a day just off one hundred dollars because it's fun and it's engaging keep my mind busy And you know up to Michael's point ultimately it's cell I lose and then it's automatically going. I went to an exchange that selling it you know. Well Shit. I lost my thought was going to say is I. I guess one of the better places to be and I'm saying this kind of facetiously. NBA little sarcastic is to be that guy on the sidelines. Because you know there are those those guys on the sidelines like you said when it was hitting you know thirteen in July or whatever the fuck I wish I bought at seven but then when it drops at seven like like how many of those people actually do buy at seven. They're kind of like those are the same people that are like well but it's done game over it. Yep Now It's a good point Jim mcgann and it's people they ride on their motions in this. You know. Think about the person who bought five years ago closed. Her eyes is closer computer and didn't look at until today. How how do they feel right? When big was at four hundred dollars you know six hundred bucks whatever it might have been and you know again ashes furniture after? I know that I'm gambling on that and I'm expecting to lose one hundred dollars for Tasha's point. She says the difference is that you know you're saying that you know capital letters gambling and and tempests. I I hope you you You get the Sarcasm in gyms pessimism in some of his sarcastic remarks about bitcoin dying you know. Obviously he would be here if he'd literally thought that and if he was We would have an honest conversation about it but I don't think he actually believes that. I don't want to speak for your job. No I'm just I'm playing up. The I'm just kind of playing devil's advocate advocate to a lot of things. I'm all set holding up the environment. What I'm seeing people in the community animals will just trying to get Joe Blackburn? A little fired up. Get them a little rowdy. See what he's GonNa say. Well my folks house. I can't get drunk as I'd like to It's a I got my kid and You know I gotTa Take Care of her so I gotta got to be low responsible so I can't get as loose as I'd like to but but also to what you said Jim is that it's also important for people to hear me. Have that conversation with Jim Right. I think it's I mean we're we're we're keeping it simple and we're not gonNA have a super long tonight in fact we're probably GonNA light winding down here shortly but But I want people to feel like they can reach. If you're having a problem with with something or if you want to explain something specifically I know myself as Rolston ten pace among many of the people that are watching tonight and commenting you could just find one of their comments and you can probably feel really comfortable going with them. you know and You know we're going to them and asking them to help you explain this to somebody you know. Tell me what. Your problems are. Common Questions We'll have this conversation conversation. We can have it with them. Bring them on live. If you want to do a live over Thanksgiving dinner. Let me know that could be great. TV Bro. I'm out you know and and ask them in my dad's office. I'm not in mind so I mean I don't mind showing hold on. She wants to see you know line over there. There's another one over here and it's hard to see him. I'm from this point. Those are Alabama Mississippi. Dear the way that I like to. But we're very proud of all of our animals and we are outdoorsman and we respect the environment that the the wildlife and the the wonderful thing that is The Woods I mean it's just it's it's in my blood right so we like to. I don't like to go and bike helmet. That's been through the processor Jim. That's that's that's been injected with steroids. And I like to know that I have honest real meat coming. I'm from you know the the God given you know environment like I love it. You're going there. You're chopping them up and going through the the whole butcher. Sure thing like you're you're you're buring it. Yes it's too Yucky. It's not it's not like somebody's got to do it right. Oh no no I agree. Someone's it's almost like against I'm not against like eating meat or hunting or anything like that. But I'm just thinking like Yucky is until Oh you realize like everybody in human existence until like a couple of days decades ago was doing this to survive literally daily habits. They they had to keep by. They didn't have refrigeration or freezers. Either a hundred years ago they killed it and ate all of it or they smoked it which took a lot of work to you know. Oh and so. Many people were saying here about Bitcoin on computers and Internet money and Christmas. And how you get argue with people and we're not talking about. How are we going to eat tomorrow and staying alive for the next winter right? I mean we're really lucky to be in this day and age. I mean life is Kinda cool. I've seen into the wild he. He killed a deer but he didn't know Even up in Alaska. You didn't know how to keep it fresh enough so to get bugs and maggots already lost it. All right. Yeah and he was really upset wasn't he. Yeah that's why he died exactly. Why Fortunately Got Russell or apparently but anyways we can move on from our delicious talk about meat I know not everybody? I'm not trying to get into arguing about that. Joe Wants can eat him alive. I actually don't chicken. which is odd? I mean I'll have some chicken. I'm not against chicken. I just don't like chicken from the store. I don't have a problem with it so manella but that's not to say that I won't go to Popeye's and get chicken sandwich overrated. I haven't tried it yet. Yeah me neither. That's what I mean it's overrated overrated. Well I'm not but I know I know it ain't worth I mean I know we're we're not talking about crypto right now but I know any worth waiting in line almost getting beat up or whatever. I know. It Ain't worth that especially you're definitely get beat up Jim. I'm sure you could talk your way out of it. I would just be like get out of my way by Bitcoin. What give my chicken sandwich? POW is now but CHICK-FIL-A. I'm not I'm not a big chicken eater so I don't go there very often. I do like how they put their pick on there. There's just something about chick-fil-a tastes. I don't really love their fries. Which I'M GONNA get probably killed over so I don't go to Chick-fil-a that often I do like Popeye's because they sell shrimp and I like shrimp so I'll go to Popeye's Popeye's before ever go to a chick-fil-a but I mean I I try not to have this conversation too but I just I find like Popeye's probably does chicken sandwiches pretty good because they're really good at making things really fattening and really yummy? I'm sure it's good. I'm sure it's good. I'm just I mean maybe the hype died down. I'm just at the time when people people are waiting again in our line or something like that. I I ain't about that life experience it's about the experience lame experience I mean but there's many the things that are Lennox differences that individuals find. That are cool. What would be a cool experience? I'll wait in line for Disney ride and that's cool and kick gas okay not waiting in line for a dumb Popeye's Sandwich Marshall. If you're listening right now you wait in line for more than thirty. He minutes for a sandwich. I don't like you well I will say what would you wait in line on when it comes to food Well I have have waited in line at trendy spots before I can't think of any of them offhand ooh I waited at in Nashville. What's there it's the touristy chicken that they have had he beats? I waited in line for that. I don't think it was that long though but I mean at what point do you find Jim like like this is too long of a wait. it's a good question. That's a great question I guess it depends. You're talking about just for food. Yeah just for food like I've been let's say I'm not saying it specifically to a restaurant not Popeye's but like if you wanted to go somewhere what's the point where you're just like it. This isn't worth it probably. It's it's tough because if you had a sit down restaurant you're fine with waiting but you're talking specifically waiting in line nine. I mean whatever I mean I'm not being generic here. Is there a certain a point in timers like okay. Eighteen probably thirty minutes thirty minutes would be the cutoff. Okay Fair Enough Helena. DRUCE has had Abe's was put chicken would open on Sunday. Yeah we agree. That's part of the visas. Great Ahead Hattie B.'s. Aren't you an even a Nashville boy right. But I'm not a chicken eater so Gotcha Gotcha but I've heard several great things about it. You're not the first person bring it up. It's it's or at least nationally famous and I. I don't mind waiting in line. I JUST WANNA wait in line more than like ten minutes so if I automatic I don't I I actually have more patients than you for a line. I mean I was in Austin in September and I was almost going to go to Franklin's barbecue where that is pitched like you're gonNA wait in line but it is like you would. We're saying an experience lead supposed to be part of it but I ended up going to a different place. Ace where the guy was taught by the same person who taught. Franklin's argues amazing of course and a lot of his touristy now news but barbecue is one of those foods is that I will wait for And I won't complain that much anyways but we're getting way off topic. We can wind up on the hour and I know we both have things to do. And I'm at home with the family. I know a lot of you are finishing up work. Maybe hit home tomorrow again. Folks please be careful. Please be safe best-case if you're not necessarily celebrating the American tradition of Thanksgiving you're somewhere or else or you just don't WanNa do Thanksgiving whatever. I still hope that you have a wonderful week and I and I hope that you're telling everybody about bitcoin. If you need help go to Bitcoin for Christmas there's a budget documents Humi- you know. I know you could reach out. People like Ash. She's got a wonderful educational thing with cryptic and you know obviously friend moderator drew. Michael might have some news about him. Coming up drew. I'm glad you watch tonight anybody else. If you guys got things going on Andrew P I would talk great things about you but I have nothing to say. Oh God him. anyways now may manager tend to go back to back and forth all the time and I appreciate his insight fullness. I'll leave it at that and we'll and we'll we'll until next time all right jam. This is bitcoin radio everybody they'd BTC. Were bitcoin lives. What we Miss Jim?

Got Me for Christmas one year. A big sign that says, happy wife happy life and it's literally right when my wife walks in the door. It's right there brother. So I I, get it right it's it's. It's important. Yeah. So I've also I've also got the Harley's and I've got a full mechanics grabbing a licensed mechanic for twenty years now and so. that's really important to me because if I'm not doing the things that create happiness and joy in my life. then. It doesn't matter how happy my wife's life is does so good. It's so good. You said that you I'll just say this to before I before you tell your story, you encourage me something the other day that I realized. Sometimes there's things that I'm good at that I kinda suppress sometimes because of the business of life and and my wife will try. To, go and fix it cody. I don't know if your wife ever does is bumper but one time I went to hear navy seal speak with one of my clients here in Orlando. Air, we just moved over here recently and she goes hey, I'll be here when you guys get back but you might be surprised how many of you listening today would Like it if your wife said Hey I'll see you when you get back but you might be surprised and I came back and she had bought this outside a fire pit and chairs, and she literally put it together herself and she says Oh the only thing I need from you is to put the propane tank inside the thing and turn it on. I like Oh, really, and so so we had a recent thing here in our house cody where our our our washer took captive a massive load of our clothes and women do not like it when that happens. Now I know that half of them were my clothes and so my wife tried to fix it she she said you yeah, she said we're inland yet clogged. By no no, it was funny. It was just a lever had caught on the inside that wouldn't release the door and so it's funny I. She's funny I've watched every youtube video. And I was like maybe I should just type in that and I the first video that pops up shows me to take out four screws, lift the top pull the lever and are close came out and I'm like well, I guess I probably should have done that a little sooner like I always and she says honey I, told you that you should have took. This project you liked to do these things you're smart. You're intelligent. You're good at these things. So cody coating occurs about all the things that he does like fixing motorcycles and fixing things and I know he he if you notice if you're if you're watching this or listen if you're listening, you won't see me in cody. Cody, has guitar in the background I know he Likes to play the guitar and he's just a I. Love It. He's He's a all well, all round the guy, and I like those type of guys. So cody, why don't you do us a favor this really inspired me why don't you tell us your story a you know so people can see that Here's what I like and I'll just say this before he does this cody's real he's raw. He's a he's full of wisdom and grace and mercy, and he knows the mercy and grace and wisdom that God has given him in his life and he's used to inspire people and so grateful for that brother you inspired me and I'm grateful for people to hear your story inhale here how they can be inspired by you also have had it brother? Thanks. So, yeah in the back I. Playing Guitars became part of my profession for nearly a decade music singing was fun. So I am. So, we'll start at the beginning, I won't I won't give you an extended version listener of of my story because. I want to get into how we help you move forward. But I will say this. So I was raised in rural Oklahoma you can probably hear that a bit in my voice shallow but So listen I was raised by a incredibly hard working data. Mother's welcome with my dad when I was the end of my fourth grade year and it was a beautiful season. It was different than most we grew up in a single bedroom trailer and we all sat in the same bed for season we we. Our idea of of entertainment was being outside in the barn, lifting up feed troughs and finding mice and finding all types of what we would call critters here. You know we grew up outside right was it was a simpler time? We grew up a little bit different. And so. For ME I. Did well in school had fun in school. I was raised Southern Baptist and when I was in highschool. started to make some choices that were questionable and by myself falling out of the faith that that I've been raised in its didn't make sense to me and sixteen I felt like, I, knew everything. Yeah. Yeah. So yeah at a at eighteen, I was managing a garage while. while. Being a senior in high school wrenching on cars getting my certification through tech and. The owner after I graduated invited me to church as. I've done that a play that game on. Good. and. I said well, why don't you go to coffee with me on a Saturday night so all right I'll do that. The copy shop was inside of a church and something I had no idea about growing up in a southern Baptist community. You don't even bring drinks in the sanctuary. No. No. And this place at this place had lights. It had electric guitars had all these things that I'd never seen in the church before and it had a pastor who had a history that was chequered like mine. I had made some questionable choices and dabbled in some things that probably weren't useful for me and and so this guy and yet here he is and he was cool. He rode motorcycles I ride motorcycles. Right this guy had longer hair at the time I had longer hair. There was just so many similarities like, okay. Well, I can get behind this. This is cool. Okay. I've never seen a faith or a church like this so. A few weeks later I got put on stage. So I got put put on a platform that I was not prepared for some. You'll know exactly what that feels like an exactly exactly where you find yourself in the in the midst of again feeling call but not necessarily feeling equipped and so at nineteen I started my journey and ministry which. Lasted, a span of. Gosh well, thirty three is when I stepped out of ministry. So you know. Fourteen years. And It was a beautiful season that allow on me the opportunities to travel the world to lead tens of thousands of individuals across the country. To walk alongside individuals very very intimately in the churches and the communities that I served as. Well in ministry you, you really wear a multitude of hats. It's not that much different than entrepreneurship. But everything from youth pastor to worship pastor to liturgical. Meant to small groups, men's groups Teaching Pastor, speaking pastor communicator. anything that you could think of because that's how typically how the church works. and. In the midst of that time got married had a child. And in the midst of that time, I became an addict. And not an added to the things that you'd think but an addict to affirmation an addict. To. Atta Boys. I became a yes man doing anything for anyone because when your job is God and God comes before anything than your job comes before anything at least that's the framework that I had to work with internally in that I'm only as valuable as I am useful. So. It came to the point where I was working eighteen hours a day for anyone within the community I was doing all things for all people because I thought. That's what my role and responsibility is to be all things to all people at any point in time. So getting calls at two or three o'clock in the morning that's fine in my family is just supposed to understand because this is the caught like I'm doing all of this for you because growing up having a father that worked so hard I acquainted love not with physical presence or affection or emotion or time well spent together. But with the idea that. Love provision in. So long as I'm providing I'm loving and you should just understand because this is my job and if I don't do this that I'm GonNa lose my job and if I lose my job, then I lose myself and if I lose lose myself worth then who am I to God in the pressure and the pressure and the pressure? and. The pressure to perform in the pressure to get everything ride in the pressure to grow a community in a pressure to keep up with everything that's happening within evangelical charismatic. Church. Circles and. Just like anything right. And it was all going what I thought to be. Really good. Behind the scenes, it was a nightmare, but I wasn't aware of the nightmare because I was. So tone deaf to the reality that I had created. Because so long as I was getting the praise and the affirmation at that everything was good. Until I come home on an October night in thousand fifteen and the the woman that I had married and had a child with says to me Hey, listen I know you're trying but I been faking it and We're separating today and I've filed for divorce and. There's someone else. Really. Didn't say coming should've but we're only again like scales falling off the eyes of the blind were sometimes we're not aware until awareness slaps in the face. And as a result of that, obviously walked through a season of very public divorce in the midst of that divorce, I lost eight family members and friends to various unrelated. Murder Suicides, overdoses, accidents leading all of those funerals because I was a man of the cloth who is all things to all people in? It's another way for me to feel affirmation validation. So let me leave these. So I can show you how strong I am in the midst of my own storm such a mess. In the midst of all of that, not really knowing how to process anything because I, didn't know how to process actual trauma. All I, knew was pray more listen to more worship music your hands a little bit more in lead a little deeper that in work anymore. Didn't have any platitudes as bond hoffer would say I didn't have any cheap grace anymore nip. Truth and my body, my body about month eight gave out. So I, ended up, finding myself in a hospital bed going septic, my internal organs shutting down saying, Hey, we're not going to do this anymore my body quit producing testosterone I went in what's called thyroid scrambling adrenal failure. Hundred and six point whatever fever. Dying, dying trying to save everyone else but I didn't. And as I said, thank God brother thank as I as I woke up, and this is where the story gets really dramatic. Haphazardly. Over to the bathroom carrying my little IV bag and looked at myself I was down close to twenty five pounds in a matter of days just looking emaciated and like I was dying Pale white gross you know things under my eyes and. I. Looked at myself in the mirror and I said, is this the man you want your son to be? Is this how you is this how you want to be remembered like. Sacrificing everything you love on the altar of your ministry. Sacrificing everything that you say means something to you. You say it means something on social media. You say it means something from a pulpit. You say it means something from a platform but your actions are communicated something entirely different. Now here we are, and so I ask myself a question that I now myself every single day that every man that I walk alongside the over forty, three, hundred but. I walk alongside every single day. Is this what needs to die to become the man that you said that you'd be, and so I recognized that maybe perhaps I needed to step out of ministry because so long as I stayed in, I was always going to be finding myself trying to be all things to all people and playing a version of myself. That was no longer true to my identity. It's good. And so I stepped out. An interesting thing happens when. You lose every shred of identity. You've ever had I wasn't husband anymore. I wasn't a fulltime dad anymore I wasn't a pastor anymore. That's the only professional identity I've known since nineteen. How old were you then cody at this time already three okay. Well, the year. Yeah Right. Yeah. Wow. So there was this rebirth that had to happen. And I didn't have anything. To report to I, didn't have anyone to report to just me and recognize that there were certain skill sets that I had stepping out of ministry that I wanted to continue pursuing and I decided then and there that. The the pulpit was going to be was going to serve as the preparation for the platform. My Man. And for some of you listening, you'll understand this completely you'll because in the midst of what we're facing right now maybe everything that you've worked for is suddenly finding itself a bit up in smoke and you're kind of wondering okay, we'll now what? What do I do? What do I do with these skill sets that I've developed with with these ideas that I had created with this lifestyle that I've become accustomed to. Because no longer that I have a salary. No longer do I have a pension but what I did have was a mortgage. What I did was child support when I did how was about three hundred, thousand dollars a deck. and. So I recognize that. Okay. If I believed that I'm created on purpose by purpose for purpose and with purpose. In something's gotTa give and be very very can that I was seeing far too many of my pastors by Pastor friends putting guns in their mouths past three years I've lost five friends in the street a suicide. And so it wasn't just me. It wasn't just me living this game of self perceived perfection and looking at everybody else's filtered life and judging need against my own and saying, why do I not feel something? Why do I not feel fulfilled? I? Have Success on the outside it's not that I'm not grateful I'm super grateful I'm I'm grateful for all that I have. So why do I feel so empty? Why am I turning to a bottle? Why am I drinking every single night just to feel something With this I didn't learn this in church. I didn't learn. I've prayed all the right prayers and people are still dying around me. I'm doing all the right things. I'm giving my tithe I'm doing all the things that I'm supposed to that I've taught to do in. I. Still Don't feel like I wanna be alive anymore and I don't know what to do with that, and so I just started doing different things i. recognize that if feelings follow actions than maybe just maybe I can recreate myself. In maybe I can start to do the things that would align with the man that I say that I wanna be not the yes. Man in the week version of man that I become maybe if he started doing different things made if I started saying no more maybe if I stopped caring what people thought so good maybe then I'd have a chance at whatever this idea of film was because what I was doing certainly was working. Out of that embraced, the line was born. It was originally embraced the line of the tribe of Judah, but that doesn't really fit on the t shirt. I own brace the line was born in really it was because. I recognized that there was a lion inside of me but I was showing up as another version of a cat that I will spare you the name of because we're on a family friendly show. And I recognize that this line had been put inside of a cage. And that there was a lot of there was a lot of emotion that I had suppressed because in the community in which I was apart and the the the ideologies faiths that I've been through. There was nothing to do with pain and aggression and anger. It was just we don't what do you do with it other than ask for peace and Columnists Right But recognized that had to go somewhere. So I started going it went into. Development. In the course of six months, I, stacked on thirty pounds of muscle lie I I acquired far more tattoos than I had when I was in ministry and I started become the version of myself that I I knew I always wanted to be I grew up on the back of a Harley I grew up wrenching on things I grew up mechanical but that wasn't an idea of success. In the communities in which I was apart. So I suppressed all of those versions of myself to be what I thought everyone wanted me to be. And I recognize were that got me. So just being me for me sake. It's interesting yesterday there was a poll on on social media by someone in our community that said, what would you rather have? Would you rather have an amazing garage or would you rather have a recording studio? A lot of the guys I walk alongside her either musicians or mechanics is just happens to be that way right to Avatar and I said and I said Hey. What if you could have both and I started to walk through I, have a full home studio and then I have a full mechanic support arm mechanics garage right like. why can't you both? Embrace, the line was born founded on four pillars of head heart health habits head how we treat our thoughts heart how we treat our relationships health that we treat our bodies in habits, how we treat our time. And I started developing a platform I started sharing my story started sharing the story of being addicted to alcohol as a pastor. Klaus. Started share the depression started share. The anxiety started to share what it means to feel overwhelmed by the need to be all things to all people. Shared what it was to not know what it is that I believed every single day. And was got big enough for that wandering was was the story of the Prodigal actually true. Could God, could be for someone in with someone who had endured. Divorce who didn't have the perfect picture of life that everyone wants to say exists on the inside of those four walls or was damaged goods so I started to explore. started walk alongside people. In the midst building, my business, which was not zero to six figures in sixty days wasn't anything like you saw on the Internet. Marketing by self proclaimed Gurus. Yes. Exactly. I started flipping harleys in my garage I cut hair every single day out of my house. I was building websites doing graphic designs and branding businesses, and that's actually how I got started in this Gig of online entrepreneurship was I was running thirty day fitness challenges. And I was branding. Solo preneurs in helping them with their messaging because if there's one thing I was good at, it was telling a story I believe we're all telling a story. For the past twenty years I've helped people tell better stories that and here we are today three years later happily remarried. Three amazing kids. Living Our dream. Life, which is a dream life us. It's not for everyone, right? For me a dream life is being able to ranch on cars and motorcycles in the evenings going on trips to hike can do fun things with my family on the weekends to others at supercars and fastenings and Chinese things, and I think that's goal to. Three companies from over three hundred thousand dollars in debt to now. No debt. And Plenty of money in the bank. And being able to say if if I can do this. Let. Me Show you. It's awesome. Awesome. Thank you for sharing i. what's what's really encouraging about that code is is. An I and I'd like to do this because I feel like. I'm kind of emotional guy to like you a little bit. You know I think that my grandmother said it very clear. There's a lot of people she said this to me there's a lot of people that will stand behind the pulpit. But they're calling was never behind the pulpit and the ad that they'll. They'll be in God's permissible will for so long and they'll stand broking and God's permissible will and they'll really shine in ministry because I don't I don't believe I I mean ministry and a word for the world is standing behind a pulpit for me. It's what you and I are doing right now this is ministry. This is percents. This is this is our ministry that we have now stepped into because you know I felt everybody said, oh. Mike. You're called to pass through your called do this and i. Said and I I shared this with cody a couple of weeks ago. My my spiritual father started a a ministry outside of his normal theology ministry as ordaining marketplace ministers and I said he he said you are a minister in the marketplace. He said there's so many people that are ministers in the marketplace and they just don't know it they. They've never stepped into becoming that person that leads people and erects people, and then he went and I won't go into this. Any went down through the scriptures and showed me all these people. It's it's There was A. A recent series code I. Don't know if you've had a chance to watch it called the chosen and It's it's on Youtube and it's just fricking phenomenon and there's one piece in there. And obviously back in Biblical Times, they didn't know asperger's was they didn't know asperger's was a a a a live. It's it's IT'S A it's a statement, but it's something that they've now realized what Matthew was right and and there's a scene in there cody where Jesus is. just Nicodemus. Says left money instead of following and Jesus says you were you were almost there. You were almost there right? Going and step like you have you stepped in to your calling. And Out of what you other people kind of pushed you into doing and you really felt like, Oh, this is okay and you know what you taught me the other day was really good and I we've heard these things over, but it's really okay to say, no, it's got myself. Everybody tells me cody is I got myself into being the Yes guy too, and I just want to thank you publicly for saying that because I think it's it's thing. So why don't you share this an in and it was funny I'm glad that you lead into that because it leads right into our next question tell us some of the things that you do. That, by the way before you say that you challenged me the other day with your workout on Memorial Day I'm a workout that's across you know I know but so I, I kind of do things a little bit different. Those of you're watching. I'm I'm fifty two years old and I began to feel like I'm in my thirties again, and so I challenged myself to know you know Andy for sellers does the seventy five hard right. So I was like man, why don't I just do something tougher than Just cody says he likes to do things that challenge him and you know when I saw you work I was like, wow, what a fricken stud right I'm like heck I've got channels myself. So I decided to do ninety minutes of exercise for ninety days Katri without missing and I'm on day four and a frigging killing it. I had a professional athlete come up to me in the gym yesterday NBA Player won't mention his name but said Hey How old are you? And I said, well, how do I look? He said like you're in your late thirties and eyesight I'll be fifty two this year he said Dude, he said, can I come work out with you? And I was like, wow. So cody, tell us some things that you do like kind of your schedule of what you do exercise. Wise. Because I know you exercise Multiple Times at times and Tommy some things that that you do that kind of inspire you to keep going and keep your health up in what you're doing. Yeah Well. The one that's awesome. Good for you. On you know health is a pillar of of etl. because. We've only got one buddy to change this world. And you can't. You can't run a mountain I work a lot of ads. And you can't run up a mountain to kids if you're fat and we can talk about social appropriateness and being pc but listen. Fat. Nothing. RADHA SHAPE OUTTA shape. You just tell them what they need to hear not what want to hear, right yeah yeah. It's hard to it's hard to see where you're going when you're phones in front of you all the time. So. I train, I train twice a day. And it's not because of seventy five harder I think that's a really great platform to get people into that light which by the way there's a lot more to Andy's programs. Yes. It's The comprehensive these are things that that a lot of us have been doing for years is kind of put put. Put a stay. At. Implement you so. When we when we talk about physical health, though I trained in a few different ways and it physical health is important to me. Because I got three kids. And I want to be present and at thirty six years old. I'm the guy who's still the dirt track. On, the pump track with with. BMX. Bikes and. I love to be that bad. I love to be the Dad who last week when I took my daughter to robber's cave out in rural Oklahoma. I'm one of the only dads who scaling mountains everyone else's letting their kids go about fifty foot high because they can't climb with their kids and of. That's just never the dad that I wanted to be. In. So I do understand that. Sometimes, there are physical limitations are ways in which we just have no control over all the ways that we do have control we should exercise it. We should give thanks everyday to the gift that we've been given by by feeding properly we we live a A. Incredibly clean lifestyle when it comes to how we eat my wife has to auto immunes she has grades and hypothyroidism. And so are, and we have an older are eleven year old has asperger's cerebral palsy and a severe seizure disorder. So are are eating here is incredibly clean both for. Physical health reasons. But then also my wife has her pro card in bodybuilding and I'm a certified in a few different organizations when it comes to health and wellness and fitness and so. It's It's important because again we're setting the example for our kids. And it is my belief that if you are not in control of your body and all the ways that you're able to be controlled right again, I have a daughter with cerebral palsy. So hear me when I say in the ways to are able, then I'm not really sure what you have control over him and. So for me in the mornings, I'll either go to the I've got two gyms saul either go to my bro- Jim Right and Industry Bro Lifts. World Road across the box and hid Awad and then in the evenings I'll do cardiovascular training. So I'll either run or bike or I will I do a lot of boxing? So I've got a blocking set up in my garage and I'll do boxing with you know body weight training, and and jump. Speed, up awesome. Awesome Awesome Ninety. Ninety minutes in the mornings and then typically sixty minutes knee evenings while it's good and you know it's really funny when I, when I posted this cody about doing ninety days. For Ninety minutes you know you get all and when you've and there's this is really funny when when I call told me this one time he said, hey, he's how come you've never really stepped in. To The spotlight you've got twenty plus years of experience you you made you made a lot of money and you lost a lot of money how come you never really stepped in and I think for me when I realized that it was a lot about fear and about you know. I was comfortable with not being in the spotlight. Sometimes, you know being a college athlete All American. Ohio state and being that back in the eighties I realized that the eighties were different than they are now days like the we're in a different. We're in a different way of doing life and me I realize a lot about my health and I just radically changed it it. You know in the last couple of years cody I have been able to take about ten years by cellular age. I. We do a DNA testing with out some panels. I took my I extended my telomeres by almost fourteen years. In the last ten years I've done a lot things like what you said with Andy I like I like how andy talks about biohacking to like you know cold showers and stuff that that he does from that standpoint. So let's shift a little bit once you tell me some good things that you do as a as a coach. And as of Anna's Anna's husband to improve relationships, some things that guys maybe are listening that they can do to improve relationships because I was challenged recently to really. Love and respect my wife even more than we do not. You asked her she would say, Oh, you're the best husband ever and I'm going to look at myself in the mirror and say no I'm not. I can be a lot better. I had somebody my podcast, my friends, Sean Q. Challenged me the other day. you know some things that he does and I think we should surround ourselves around people who encourage us to be better husbands, and better friends. So tell me some things that you teach and some things you do to to improve upon those things. Yeah well, one recognizing it can't poor from an empty cup. So take care of your yourself I write putting your you'll say you put your spouse I myself. I don't put myself I. Then I can't put her. As as taking God out of the equation of like, okay. That supersedes everything I understand then. The practical here for a second. So for us, you know I adhere to what we call each other daily six. So wake up and we focus gratitude. Got It now. So focus on gratitude. First thing I. Do when I wake up is I speak three things that I'm grateful for in my wife now. I do that silently because I wake up at three, forty five and if I woke her up at three, forty five, am I'm not saying you need to go wake up at three, forty five, that's it's a habit for me. I really appreciate MMA quiet time. And the stillness of the morning, and I wouldn't be able to get through this entire routine, and I'm about to share with you for me if I didn't wake up this early. So I focus on gratitude speak that silently over her and then I focus for the next us five five. So minutes I focus on things that I'm grateful for being very very aware as I walk through my house being raised in a in a single bedroom trailers and now living in a five thousand foot house that free like. At the that's a that's a shift. That's a that is a as an entire culture shift. And very grateful. Being being grateful for for the cool air and our house on Summer Mornings anything in everything because what happens typically when we wake up was we focus on all the things that we didn't do the day before folks on all the things that we have to do with folks on all the things that we don't have all the ways in which this could go wrong in the problem is that that frames your day in an attitude of scarcity in fear and frustration And gratitude can't live with those things live. So I found that when we can start our day with a posture of gratitude that allows for expansion and openness as we move forward into the rest of our days. So from there, then meditate by meditate don't mean I sit like Rafiki from the lion king say home. That's a way to meditate not how I meditate. I meditate by speaking I am statements for ten fifteen minutes I. Love that I y because one biblically there's power in IM statements in hayme Christ never said, I will be the way in the truth and I am not what he's I am. I am I am that I am going to say Moses when he came before God I am that I am not. As there's something interesting subconsciously the happens starting statements when we keep saying things like successful one day. Your brain if you'll allow me to just jam on this for a second, your brain follows the path of what we call the the principal path in physics light follows it water follows it forms of energy follow it meaning it needs to go the least amount of resistance that it can, and so your brain your thoughts, your processes follow the same path. So this is why Paul says you know. I I know things that I want to do but I'll be damned if I don't keep doing the things that I don't want to do why because your brain doesn't care biologically psychologically your brain doesn't care what you want. Your brain only cares about patterns your brain only cares about habitual patterns get you to the point that it thinks you need to be at based on the biased confirmation of your past. Because it's busy. It's busy listening to me right now while you determine whether I say what I say is true or not true. You're if you're watching this, you're taking this information and while watching my mannerisms right while breathing in air while pumping blood while doing all the things that you're ball ball, your body keeps keeps itself upright think about that like all these things that we don't even think about yet your brain is doing this twenty four seven. So for you to have a new thought WANNA, do a new saying Nah. So I in relationships and we keep making the same bonehead mistakes or we live out the life of our parents even that's the last thing that we ever wanted to do why what we saw. Monkey see monkey do hundred percent. In. So for me meditating on I am statements puts me in a frame of mind of saying I am so that that principle of least path becomes prevalent that I am not. It's not that I'm going to be these things which signals to my brain while you're not yet these things. So I'M GONNA go into default to what you subconsciously believe. You are right now because if you say you're going to be a good spouse what that means you're not a good spouse. So I just want to default to that I'm going to be wealthy well, then that means that you're not wealthy now. So I'd rather stay on that path. So speaking those I statements then from there, I had to the gym to confirm what it is that I say that I am able that I am strong that I am fit that I am capable that I am a protector. I am the man I'm the king of my castle right and so then I move. And, I move my body. And I work out work out to the hardest of my capabilities. Sometimes to make myself physically sick why? Because it can? Cause other people do today I did that today cody I remember sitting in the car today when after I was done with ninety minutes and I just sat there for a while. Driving his car like this? No way no way. There are some who can't and so why wouldn't? I. Wouldn't I push myself meant fan and it feels good. It does feel good to know that you've accomplished something before most people wake up. When I come back home and my office is detached from the House, which is Great. Right so I have my office also acts as recording studios. I've got recording to you inside of my office which has always been a dream and so live in the green right now. Awesome and I read so I read for sixty minutes. And I read any number of of books depending on what it is that I'm working toward. So like I'm typically always reading marriage book because right now I'm reading a seven principles for making a marriage work this like my third time through it why who? WHO's the author that one? John Goodman Okay I'm reading his needs her needs Bob. Marley. And I, this is this is I think my third time through it and feel as I why are you? Being married sometimes. Sometimes sometimes, I am fully man and Yeah I. Get it wrong. So There was a story of of a pastor, an older pastor who was in a rural town and he preached a message, one son and everybody said man. I was in A. Sermon. Wow I've never heard something like that in the next weekend preached the same thing and they're like, whoa. Okay. Maybe for the first time visitors, they want they want him to hear it. That's as smart as smart brother. well-done third, Sunday. The same thing will, what's what's happening here for Sunday? A same thing two months same thing. Now, the boards getting involved something is going. Senile. Is Getting up there. Maybe he's approaching retirement. Three months. Same exact message. Now, the news is getting involved. What is going on with this people are leaving people are frustrating he just won't preach a fresh word. All he's doing a saying the exact same thing verbatim. So the news comes out and they're saying brother. You're losing half your congregation because you're not bringing anything fresh you keep saying the exact same thing. Do you do you recognize you're saying the same sermon? Every Sunday says, I do with you recognize this cost me people yes. I do well, why don't you change up your messaging until they start doing what I've said the first time. Why do I need to move forward? So I keep reading the same books. Every every day I, read a chapter out of the greatest salesman in the world, which if reader or listener if you're looking for a book to read read it, it's small it is tiny but I can tell you a five six that dynamite comes in small packages. and. So this small book there are ten chapters in at that are going to represent ten scrolls, and if you will read one, just follow the directions of the book don't go forward. Don't try to go fast don't try to Amazon prime this book. Read it as it's intended to be read, it don't move forward one scroll at a time every day three times a day for thirty days. Then move onto the next one and I can tell you that the end of those ten your life will be radically one hundred percent improved. So I read that book everyday, it takes about five minutes. What did you say did you say what? That was the greatest salesman in the world it's by Augmon Dino. Thank you about that I find a lot of resources from a a good friend of mine wrote it's called warrior, and so my Buddy Garrett wrote that book with providing really robust training protocol I have not walked through it myself but he is a dear friend of Mine and Surfing Buddy, and so I highly recommend up as well for men. Then Journal. Write and I right I I literally have. I have. One, two, three or During on I desk, we're cody were too much alike, Bro. If you could see my desk behind me over here I'm Kinda, behind my my big large desk over on the other side. My wife laughed when I talk show I made her read your story and what's your video she said, wow no wonder you like him. You guys seem like much life. You have like twenty journals, right? Yeah. I love writing I. It's it's been a passion of mine and so I will write what I hope to apply from what it is that I've I've read because while it's been said that knowledge is power it is not. Knowledge is potential. Power Knowledge is power when it's applied. So I don't care how many books you read I don't care that. You read a book every three days I don't care that you've got you know. Your office smells of rich. Mahogany. And leather bound books I don't care because if you don't apply, it doesn't matter. So it's like the person who takes one hundred courses on how to start a business. I can tell you how to start a business from. Top to bottom but has never actually done it. So I've been there. I've been there you. If you read one book a year and apply it great. You'RE GONNA still be ahead of fifty percent of the people who read a book every week don't do anything with Yup. So the greatest salesman in the world, I would highly recommend thinking grow rich by Napoleon Hill. I would highly recommend like four times. My found one thing that I got to figure out read it four. And there's another one if you're looking for something a bit more robust and less would. Say The unabridged version of I think and grow rich, and that's right here in that is called the Law of success that is by Napoleon Hill as well. It's just a very, very thick read way of Superior Man where the Spearman is a book that's the changed my life and continues to form my lasso recommend that every man read that. As well. As a man thinks is another book was getting ready to come right out of my mouth Is is another book that is incredibly profound simple right? The were very simple. If simple was easy, everybody would do it. Right being getting in shape is simple right? Like move your body and don't eat like an asshole yet. Here we are with most people being overweight, right so simple is the name of the game yelling business facility being a good spouse as simple, but it's not easy because we have ego we have patterns we have habits and we have needs to be right and needs to win justify and be heard and for men if I can say anything in terms of relationship as a guy who's now listen on his second marriage and. Has Opportunity to listen to thousands of men every single day do a better job listening don't listen to respond. Listen to hear. Two Years Right and recognize the his needs, her needs. That's great. You know the five love languages is another really good book. To. Recognize that listen I love buying my wife stuff. I didn't grow up with with money and now having money we don't like to buy frivolous things necessarily Like I'm the guy that rather than buying a lambeau or something that would not make sense for for me did I I love buying like. Sixty eight charger. Eighty nine Bronco and to crappy old Harley wife. That's my wife to I'm a mechanic I wanNA tinker on things I want to build things like working my hands i. Could but I loved I loved to buy my wife things and you know what? What's funny. She could care less. She appreciates. She could care less all but to me growing up with not much of anything anytime I got something it meant everything because we didn't have anything. Her she didn't grow up getting a lot of attention. So for her my undivided attention me looking her in the is me asking her engaging questions and time he must be quality time I'm guessing quality time with. Physical touch. That's my wife, my wife or those two two and so for me, I'm not those things naturally and I think when we can recognize that we're not those things naturally for me. Quality time was when my like when somebody got off work and we sat down and we like either maybe turned on the TV and watch wheel of fortune or cops. Right and in in my grandfather with some times, play his guitar over wheel of fortune and nobody cared to my wife if I bring my guitar downstairs and I'm GonNa play over a movie that we're watching she gets so annoyed because that's not quality time to me it is. But to her it's not. To me I'm here why do we need to talk? Right. That's that's. If I leaned to my own understanding. That's might mentality. It's like crazy to me to. We didn't talk growing up like, why do I? Talk. So recognizing that your partner has needs that may be very different than yours in that doesn't make if you right when if you wrong it's just recognizing that we've all had we all have our own experience that we walked through and part of part of love right is. Is recognizing that. You have needs that are different than mine and I should want to edify. Those needs. Right and I found that like I. so I'll say like I don't like my I don't anybody to buy anything I like to buy it for myself. I'm not I'm not a really great. Typically because. People get me really thoughtful gifts. But. They're not guess I'd get myself. So that doesn't compute to me I get it right So the beauty is so long as I'm meeting my wife's needs right in men listen to this. So long as I'm meeting my wife's needs. So long as I'm giving her quality time attention affirmation. So long as I'm touching her in ways that show her that I care for her which doesn't mean groping her, which is how I would naturally touch her. She's hot. But just giving her those physical touches that show her the that she's comforted or that she's loved and valued. Listen I can do whatever I want. I want to go buy something for the garage I WANNA go get a new toy wanted to do something. If I wasn't meeting her needs. It's it's a problem as long as a meeting, our needs she could care less. It's a win win. Focus of listen if you want your needs met one focused on filling your cup in the morning so that you can meet the needs of your partner through the day and be the man that you said you'd be. So you can be you can be the man that your son's aspire to be when they grow up and you can be the man that your daughters will end up marrying make no mistake whether whether. S or you're night and shining armor your daughter will marry you. You get to choose I believe that I'm believe. In Cody you said so your last two of your six I believe is you you number five? Is You plan right arm? Yep, and then you spend time with your family, right? So plan meaning I'll take out. So I'm a physical planner guy I don't use the the have calendar online for scheduling things, but I also ride it into physical planner. Paper in front of me, I'm old school like that. Some people don't understand it, and that's cool. Some people like to show their screen shots on the Internet of how busy schedule is minus not I do not have a busy schedule I have a productive schedule but also have a schedule that I've created while people's I. Don't have any time dude I run three successful businesses June learn the works and I have plenty of time part of it is because I get up so early. I get everything done before everyone else wakes up so that I can work on in my business business through the Times that I need to, and then I'm off in the afternoon is I'm off every weekend like I'm spending time with my family. I've only got eighteen guaranteed summers in the kids. Is it? That's it well so awesome wedding planning the day. So that I know that I'm not wasting time because time is valuable. And then typically around o'clock I run downstairs and I make a mean eggs bacon every single morning sometimes we'll make some pancakes like Paleo pancakes. Wife's favorite Kodiak. Cakes sometimes. And But. We have breakfast every single morning we don't always get lunch together because if I have a call or doing a podcast or something else like that doesn't happen but we always eat dinner together as well. So breakfast together and then we're always super like always active on the weekends. See at time with the family time family's important. Awesome and it's kind of funny. I said this at the beginning I think how you've how we went through this you summed up a couple of questions that I ask you in a group of all of them, which is pretty awesome happens but one last thing I want I want I want you to share. and. Then I'll have I want people to be able to connect with you and Lincoln, connect with you. Shirts is talk a little bit just about a because I know you've said this and it's very important is just about how we can be accountable to ourselves but things that we do to hold ourselves accountable light like this is something that I I'm. Just GonNa say this before cody goes into this. The I've implemented recently for myself as I got a couple of accountability partners and we meet every week and we talk and we encourage each other but you know what they've done they've sharpened me they've told me things I need to hear not what i WanNa hear and what I've done is is like for. Me I know how many men seven out of ten men struggle with pornography right I put blocks on my phone's blocks on computers I put blocks on things why? Because I respect the woman that God God said that when I find a good wife, I find a good thing and I find favor with God right and God has entrusted me with Lisa. I and I take that I don't take that for granted. So I made her put blocks on my computers in on my IPAD and everything so that I'm held accountable. So tell me some things that you do. You've mentioned it a little bit of things but just maybe what that shares on your heart and what you think about when you think about it. Yeah. So one accountability community is is at the forefront of of what we do. So when we talk about connecting own courage guy that lists this jump over to facebook dot com forward slash groups forward slash embraced the lion in joined the over four thousand men that are committed to this type of community. We're going to be rolling out some opportunities for you to jump into even deeper community to create the life and for for many the business data that you know that your call too. So I would love to see over there I'd love to hear more of your story. And I I've been in the business of over twenty years of helping people tell a better story but that starts with urine you're so jumper. That said. For me, it is a robust system of checks and balances so. My wife knows what I do everyday right? Like we go over our calendars and rules We've got a lot going on between therapies for our daughters and between events and activities, and my wife runs our own successful business and she's also just finished up her second book. So she's she's busy and I'm busy in the kids are busy and but all busy towards productive things. So for me accountability to her to let her know that I'm being responsible with my time so that I can help I, were help is needed rank. divvying up house house activities there certain things, and I'm responsible for riot like kitchen trash. There's certain things that are multi. Dominion that I need to take care of. And so. That accountability to make sure that I'm I'm meeting her where she is, and then I have a a very tight knit band of brothers. That's I report to every single week that know me inside and out the know all of my mental trash that no, all of the ways in which I want to want to be a good husband and I want to want to be a great dad but deep down sometimes I actually don't, which is why won't want them because sometimes I would rather be working twenty, four, seven building this empire out of Ego. and. That makes more sense to me being honest about that. Being, honest when when I feel like I want to go get a Margarita with some Mexican food even though I live a sober lives are being able to text somebody say, Hey, there. Thank you I did do Margarita sounds really good right now. I'm a Margarita Fan too. And so they'll reply back to me. Yeah it does it does doesn't it but seven doesn't and because of my personality and somebody who just drives things to the very edge I know. But if I have one, it'll justify going back down a rabbit hole of drinking. So, but but that only happens through being in. By sharing that, hey, like I have these things that are vices to me. And if I'm not careful if I'm not careful, I won't stop my day when my day when I told my family, my day is going end I will continue working if I'm not responsible if I'm not held accountable to my wife who says hey babe. You know. It's five in. That's when your phone in the bedroom like are you wrapping that up? I can give it. Hey, listen who? who provide most of the income here. Hey, who does this? Hey. Why don't you let me do this because I need to work out you're right. That was a non-negotiable I said existed. So if I'm going to be a man of my word integrity phone up, it's awesome. It's awesome. Hey, maybe it's Friday night your apps. Treated. That's not to like cut me down. It's. We do that Yup Yup Cho. Parked. Love it there's accountability I, love that I appreciate that not proceed that you. Proceed and one of the things as we close one of the things I'm really I'm really respectful about his time. And I just want WanNa. Thank you. Thank you I I I feel like I feel like I'm encouraged by My prayer recently cody has been that God would surround me with the I'm a huge John. Maxwell Fan and John, says, you know your your your product of of your. Your product of your environment and you surround yourself and you bring good things and it's like garbage in garbage out right? It's like we weaken weaken we can listen to somebody we can chew up to meet and spit out the bones right? Like like he's not not the person he's not enforcing you not to drink. He's saying that for him those are things that he needs accountability with and he needs he's made commitments for himself right and in the people it's like like you said in the very beginning I love it when he said you know I'm not. I'm not here to judge you I've I've I've I've messed up in my life right I've already I've already been the hell. I've already been to hell back. So I'm not afraid to step in anyone else's. But I'm not here to shame you. Well. That's so for me. It's not even about the the idea that things would still be. For me, it's never the I'm going to go do this and I just need somebody to hold my hand pass that we've been. I've been passed that for for a long time but it is the ownership. It is the hey I had this thought out of out of my own ethical responsibility out of the Brotherhood I gotTA share with you that I. had this thought Yep right because feelings follow actions right in thoughts or somewhere in there so I need to honor this thought. I need on this feeling. So that doesn't turn into action. Yeah and it doesn't matter where you're out on the journey whether you're whether you're trying to move something forward whether you're trying to quit something where you're trying to abstain from something whether you're just trying to be less of a jerk whether you're trying to be more focused on the family where you're trying to make more money and grow a business that requires accountability. Things require. Accountability. Right all of them and why is my business move forward because one of my close friends like They're all doing multiple seven and eight figures. Up If, that doesn't motivate you. I don't know what will motivates me. You know. Yeah. Yeah. That's awesome. That's awesome. You brought up. You brought up the time thing when I had my friend Ryan Mikla on a couple months ago I don't know if you knew Ryan that. Well but he you know Ryan Really R- your friend. Yeah. So you know he said he brought up an instance and he said, Mike said my wife and I had this respect for each other for our time right? Like we hold each other Cannibal Times Yup one one day she came down in an he you know he has this massive office barn and everything that he doesn't he's just an awesome. Thing he's like you. He thinks you know, hey, I need. This is what I need is what I want I can do that. So I'm going to do it right any any said he said one time she came down and said Hey Ryan will you take the trash out and he said honey you can lay outside the door and at five oh one. Five Oh one. I'll take the trash out and she said honey I'm so sorry I totally I disrespected our accountability of our timeframe you work from this still this, and then the rest of the time is mine and my fan and and and I think we've learned that we learned how to. Our spouse holds US accountable other people hold us accountable and then we are allowed. Hold other people accountable for things that they say it's a it's a it's a fine line sometimes cody by just want to say thank you for having people in your life in expressing how important that is to you. Yeah. Even my my wife, my wife did the we do the same thing right this holding each other other other kind of the time and just to close that out. Also, respecting that when just because you want to have a conversation. Doesn't mean it's the appropriate time to have a conversation. There'll be times when I'm in the middle of my work day and my wife will come up and just want to talk to me and tell me something but I'm right in the middle of something. And so I'll stop and I'll say, Hey, listen I I wanNA hear we have to say I want to hear the story because obviously very important to you but I need ten more minutes because if not the and I'll take a break but if not, I'm going to be like at best half in. On this conversation because I'm going to be thinking about what it is that I need to be doing. And the same with her she's in the middle of something and I come down but guess what she's like. I need a second. It's not they don't WanNa hear you. But I'm in the middle of something. That happened this morning. So I was up in I fixed the. Fixed A.

I'm a I do all the cooking in our home So I, I, make my my wife came to me cody and I'll finish with this. My wife came to me a couple of months ago and she doesn't have to work if she doesn't want to. She's at she said, I want to go back to work. And I was like she's working on the frontline at the hospital with covid patients. And she's just an angel. She's a saint. There's my hero wears a mask every day to protect yourself from what what you know what we're going through right now, and as we start to come out of it, she's my hero but I respect her because of the things and you know what's funny. Are everything in our life has has just scaled quickly after loss because we've really dug into really being in that perfect will God just like you said, you know now you're striving in what God's got completely planned for you able to say no able to move forward and so I'm just grateful for you.

As I think about you guys said never say I can't never say I can't I listened to a daily affirmation podcast from my friend John Eldredge who's a pastor out in Denver Colorado and said thirteen minute affirmation that I speak these things over my life and I almost have them memorized and they're the same things I thought about when Cody said that you know he he species im statements over him over his life.

He's a scientist from Israel and he has You know a bit of a unique approach to the corona virus. It's something that's very different than what mainstream media has been telling.

And some of the information they share with us today Just a quick example. He is four a corona virus vaccine again another example. He is not afraid of the current. Oh virus this is a seventy five year old man and he has zero worry about the virus or I should say contracting the virus himself he does blame a lot of the quote fear mongering on Social Media. He calls it a social media epidemic. That's causing a pandemic something that we hadn't discussed on this podcast before but the way he lays it out. It makes a ton of sense and we've heard in the past about doctors. Changing death certificates He's on that same Thought process but when we asked him like how is this possible like?

That's it for me. Ladies and gentlemen please enjoyed the show Tampa lift today andor new. I can't even move. You popped your shoulder out or something right. I Dunno Gary. I don't know I don't know what it is. I just you know regular bench. One thirty five not fillon like not struggling just getting reps in and then I go up and then I just Kinda poke my head a little bit to the left to look for the hook and died instantly. Felt it like I I was like frozen. I was stuck. I could not go anywhere and then I you know shimmied my way down and then got up. And I'm like ooh is pretty bad and then as the day went on a disk got progressively worse in this. So good thank you. I'm trying to think. I think you're faking it bro. You look good so I was telling smoking. I'm like yeah. My range of motion yesterday was like zero point one today. It's like a zero point. Maybe to like it's your whole. Your whole shoulder is like this. It's it's my my neck wound shoulder. It's pretty Pretty fucked up so a after the five G. could be the five G. Yeah so there's lots of problems with glasses. I'm starting to find out. We talked about it a little bit the other day How come there's nowhere to grab him like the only place to grab him. Is the Glomma with your fat fingers. The the right here. Yeah what why do I like to get needs like? I mean like so if it's folded right if it's folded all the way then when you try to grab it you kind of ended up glomming up the thing it's like it needs like a like a handle up here. I mean I know it would look ridiculous but maybe it's retractable or something. You can point it down or something. I love that. Mark is experiencing glasses like almost fulltime for the first time. And he's like trying to figure out ways to improve this This technology that's been around since forever that nobody wants to fuck with because it just sucks because the guys that wear the glasses are usually working on something else. So you can't wear contact lenses. Andrew I can. They won they suck. I've already gotten lasix twice and I'm still blind and then the best thing about working I thought lake was for your butthole. That's why he got it twice. Heard you correctly. Context just suck. They're for for my vision. How bad it is like. It almost makes things worse because I still can't see and just as bad as a tough tough thing to try to figure out and can. I wonder if you can get context. They have like blue light blocking stuff out permanently block get. We wanted out all the time I mean during the day. But it's artificial right while there's like blue light from the sun but like the don't want light in your devices is like at night. Bryant Melatonin Lap. So what the what they need is like you know those. Those there have eyeglasses a transition from regular to like Sunglasses out in the sun. We need blue blocking glasses at only transition indoors to block out the artificial blue light smart Edward looking at were looking at here is a helmet. I think we need to hell. Man Jimmy Lee the need a helmet because we kinda need math anyway in those five like shields you now so you just need a whole helmet. Yeah I'll read in and out of your nose and everything did you guys see how she is like. No more shaking hands after this kind of gets back to normal. I think Rogan posted that up. That's crazy if there's no more shaking hands like what I know you know what they're really. These are bad practices. Anyway I mean bowing is you know. That's that's where it's at you know and you're right little head nods of acknowledgement and You know you shouldn't really need to like glommed all over people you know what I mean. But at the same time yet is what we're used to I also found it pretty interesting that the University of Stanford is like trying to study another trying like backlog stuff basically to figure out like when this whole thing started and they're they're talking about it may have started in the fall. We may have already gotten it. I haven't been sick in years but I got floored by something for like a day and a half in late December early January and just from the information that we have about what this virus is. I I think I may have already had it. I think my I think it may have ran through my family. I was sick for like a day and a half and I was really sick and I was coughing like crazy and then it just it completely disappeared. That same thing happened to me last year. Later last year it was a September October And it was legit. I remember you guys remember like I told you on the podcast. The Abbey's flu symptoms and I decided that my body needed like sugar. Like that's what I ended up drinking like a Shaker. Whenever remember I was talking to you guys about that marine so upset because unlike okay only to sima would just go to like eating carbs to feel better to get over the flu or something but I do remember vividly. Yeah and I haven't been sick like before that for years. I haven't had. I didn't have any type of sickness for years so I wonder if that was the flu. Or you know who knows some of those mind? It's like some right here too. I described I just took some About an hour ago to write to the faith. This one's going to be interesting though because like I'm wondering if This guy still has those same views. A lot of things have changed since he made the claims in that article like Italy. Past seventeen thousand right. Yeah Yeah Yeah that's true. Yeah I you know. People have been kind of pissed at us. You know But I think that at least the way I see it and maybe other people see it differently. I see that a lot of the stuff that we uncovered is unfolding right before our eyes. You know I think that we've been We've been Kinda rate rate on the forefront of some of it. I think it's great. And that's why we're doing these dives and that's why we're we're looking into communicating with these people. And and hopefully you know I want to get as many different sides of this as possible. So I'm not trying to like I'm not trying to back up what we're saying by hand picking people hopefully and if people that are listening to this can get us Can Get us in contact with some other guests of actually had a few fans that were That work in New York City and stuff like that and let her you walk and things. I think we are recording. Are We okay? I didn't see on the top. Yeah Yeah so in any of that stuff. You know anyone that has any communication with anyone who thinks would be valuable Will will entertain you know. Get on the show. 'cause I wanna I wanNA hear from all sides in also lasts they just WanNa point out again I WanNa make sure people understand that. I have never thought that this virus is not a big deal. I have never thought that this virus isn't deadly. It is clear that that it has That people are dying from a other results of corona virus breaking down and then you end up dying from bacterial infection or or or some other type of thing happens to you. I think it's very clear you know and I want to reiterate that I it's not that I'm not compassionate about. I am compassionate about it. I do care about people. I don't want people die. I don't think anybody does. I just am trying to dispel myths. That are out there. There's a lot of weird shit circulating and we may be part of that. I admit that as well. We may be part of some of that weird shit circulating around. But I believe there's where there's smoke there's fire and probably some truth to some of these things and it appears that more of this stuff kings continues to kick up and in today's Day and age. I don't think that people can keep their mouth shut for very long so I think that everything is going to come to the surface but it might take a while Row Quick before we get even further into it. Do you guys have an opinion? On which flavor is better of perfectly? Does NEW COOKIES I am one hundred percent on team chocolate chip cookie. Yes I agree by far The mean it's not like the double chocolates pad. The chocolate chip is hot. This much better much much better. Yeah Mark Have you partake of big in the the chocolate chip? Yeah me too. I think it's a texture thing for me it it just. It has the other extra crunch from the chocolate chips. And also I think because the The double chocolate is more like a Brownie now. More and more of a fan of a cookie than Brownie. Yeah they're they're they're really good but you know I still have to. I still have to say that I dig. Their bars. Are Uber like the cookie says snack because the little change up but like those bars get not Collagen in there and seamus giggling about something. What is it so I'm not GONNA get into it? I don't think my listeners to the podcast nationally doesn't we did something interesting with the cookies. One day to get to the end of the all right. Hopefully we figure out whatever that is that we can put that in a promotion but until then please everybody else too right. Yeah maybe Oh yeah. Talk about quarantine. Creations are interested. Please head over the perfect dot com slash power twenty-five at checkout enter Promo Code Power Project for twenty five dollars off any order of ninety nine dollars or more Again check out the cookies. The bars the the nutro pick them St oil all of that Yeah on all orders of ninety nine dollars more with that Promo Code. You're also GONNA receive free shipping Yeah highly recommend the chocolate chip cookie bars. I also have another question for you guys. This is going to be a little bit long winded. I'll try to shorten it up as best as possible is about and semen running around the streets naked. You guys saw that running into cars and Shit. That was but contact. Somehow when you're out there man you're you're God bless Lulu and you're out there representing all of us were team now. So can you can do the same thing you know that. Can you discontinue running into cars? What sucks I found like the Jesse verdict had posted the extended version of that and he was plowing through all of the cars on. I wish I had seen that one. I would have used that one instead but Se Break love that Shit. You Jesse's his his INSTAGRAM's Fund of follow to what the Fuck Wednesdays but speaking of cars so if somebody is Let let's say they're driving there in a car accident and they get t-boned really hard like their their car rolls and in while it's like upside down it explodes like in the movies and k cause of death comes back and it's like they didn't die because of the impact from the car accident. They actually died from an underlying factor that their car is prone to exploding so then. Do we say car accidents? Don't Kill People. It's explosions or do we say that. It's all one car accident. I think sometimes these things are hard to figure out and I think that that's the Statistical dilemma that we see a lot you know and and same thing with anything though like with nutrition you know someone can say hey. I'm doing this diet. And it caused a B and C and then we have other people that will say hey. Will that happened because of these other factors and so like that would have happened anyway if you just lost weight versus the Carnivore Diet Right. So yeah those things are really really hard to determine you detect and I guess the main thing to think about is just you know how how maybe maybe that's not the best question all the time as 'cause you can split hairs on that right and you can say hey look while the guy died because his liver shutdown but his you know his liver shut down because of the car wreck or his liver shut down because of the Corona Virus. It was the precursor of it all but again. You WanNa Kinda start to play that game. You can start to look at while. The precursor was the Brownie. Said he ate in the middle of the night every night for the last sixteen years of his life. You know what I mean so it gets to be Yeah it gets to be kind of a tough thing to to figure out you know the I. I think the crazy thing right now because I was I was thinking about having a conversation with a friend of mine yesterday. About North Carolina be as North Carolina's had a very large amount of deaths within the African American community but also the high amount of those stats are individuals. Who had really high blood pressure diabetes very overweight especially in that area Income to wonder like I mean obviously when they got the virus it is corona virus that killed them. But it's like all of these underlying things when you look at it on healthy people. It doesn't end up being that at and then also every single year apparently Ninety three thousand three hundred people in Italy die of tobacco like tobacco deaths ninety three thousand three hundred sixty four thousand children of ten to fourteen year olds tenths fourteen years old smoke and then ten million adults in Italy fifteen plus smoke tobacco every single day respiratory issues kind of to begin with right. Exactly you know so. It's like the amount of death that we're seeing there. It's it's like still more people are GonNa die of smoking. But when I'm curious as we see these high out of debt so cronin Italy how many of these could be convoluted and they're actually respiratory issues already you know. And they didn't even have colonel but the died because of their messed up lungs and they didn't have the virus feel like there's a lot of assets you know that that that's not accounting for and my crazy crazy but my question really just would be like okay so then is the corona virus. Just the perfect storm that hit Italy. You know what I mean like. Is it like Oh they were GonNA die anyways type thing but also like okay because the virus it now like I keep saying it does expedited everything now where those people are. GonNa die anyways. Unfortunately most likely they were however when they contracted the virus if they did you know we don't know let's just say that they did then. It disliked the wildfire so I might just fighting with it in my head like okay. Is the virus killing people? I mean like like the car accident Analogy it's like well. They are but not but they are. You know what I mean. So when when we have You Know Dr. Petar saying it's harmless. I kinda WanNa like you know. Pump my brakes a little bit to be like Wool Shit. I mean it's doing something right. Well I've heard other people compare it to car. You know type things where they said like hey you know what if driving kills millions of people all the time and and car wrecks way down right now because no one's not no one but less people are on the roads and then so let's just. Let's throttle Hypo- hypothetical. I don't have any idea of what how many people die in car wrecks every year and I'm sure it matters the country and probably matters on how a congested areas probably more you know more people probably die in in Italy where people are cruising around mopeds and tiny little streets and all this different stuff but Anyway let's say that the death rate with cars Car ACCIDENTS INCREASED BY TEN PERCENT. Would start walking to work you know. What if it increased by twenty percent? Would you start walking to work? What if it increased by fifty percent? You start walking to work or would you start to think like I need you? Maybe work a lot to live a lot. Closer to work you know what would that percentage be. That would stop people from driving. And you know we're not gonNA stop driving. We're going to continue to drive. Ric almost regardless of how high the pers- their percentage would have to be obscene. It would have to be you know seventy five percent across the stop driving and even then there still be people like fuck it man. I'm going to risk it as I need to get my house to work. I need to go make some make some money and I realized that that that's a different comparison than what we're actually dealing with but it does put things in perspective a little bit. I would love to have the freedom to have the right to go and live whatever way I want. You know And I I understand how people are saying well. We can't do that at the moment and I don't mind US stopping for for a little period of time. But I think I think that we're to the point where we can say like this. Be Hard thing to determine. But if you don't feel like you're in harm's way the go about your business you know what I mean. That's that's Kinda my viewpoint and I you know. I don't know if that's going to happen. I do think that trump is going to be under a lot of pressure in that. He will try to reopen things up. But it's going to be probably more up to the states than it will be to the whole country they'll probably and that makes a Lotta Sense. You'll makes a lot of sense to say. Hey you know what we can kinda reopen things back up here in whatever said state that is maybe doing a little bit better and maybe some of the other ones that are still having a tough time. Maybe they gotta wait it out a little longer. You know that was what what you kind of talked about. Was the doctor about to have on. That was kind of his viewpoint to I think it's called like the IT'S A it's a British way of doing it. Where like you isolate older individuals or people more at risk and then everybody else that feels up to it and is able they can go about living. Their daily lives spreading it among themselves and causing that her immunity. And it really like. I know we're doing this so we don't overwhelm the healthcare system but it makes a lot of sense I'll area. There is connecting me. Change my name's my actual name. I think we got him. Dr Last can you hear us can you you? Hey this is absolutely fantastic to have you on our show today. We really appreciate your time. So what we wanted to kind of get into Right off the bat here is. We're hearing so much. Conflicting Information This Day and age about you know how to how to handle this Corona virus and I found it. Really interesting your work and the information that That you've been talking about and the articles that you've written and stuff You're talking about kind of the opposite of what almost every single country has done every single country. Kinda shut down. They told people not to go anywhere. What is your philosophy behind? Just people going about their business. What what are what are your thoughts on that. When I think that the prison situation is like we call in medicine. The drought is kidding patient and he had the patient is really sick so we use real very difficult drugs we sometimes they killed the patient. Problem here is that the patient is not really sick. People talking about Maggie black plague and they think about percent fifteen percent of the population going down the drain which is not the case. Sweet sane over the years mortality waves even in your country you look at two thousand twelve and D six thousand. Americans die trump be kalman season. So we'll tonic. Yuwei eat something we see. The numbers are small if you compare them to be large population and this is what we have now immortality you way which is a Cleveland tool situation however as a result mainly all Mr Suker Eric what we have today is October Monster. Stereo see away by Syria which brainwash your brain ovulation rate and government great everybody's brainwash. The the problem is not as big as it is represented by took her back takes if photograph of every core in New York City. Every core is photograph made me distributed all over them and becomes policy. We have here a situation. We had a four. I mentioned the numbers in your car. So I think that We have to change our attitude. This is an regular common situation. Seems like the thought processes that if we quarantine that People won't be able to pass it around and that over a period of time the the virus will kinda run its course and then we can go back to doing what we were doing. And you feel the opposite. Correct either way yes. This virus is extremely contagious. More than the regular flu. So the other edge insured may be to produce what is known as herd immunity herd immunity where the virus is rapidly distributed. We know that People under the age of sixty five. The risk is zero almost zero so we have to protect our keep. We have to protect the nursing hall in every person in the risk groups should stay at all voluntarily but we cannot destroy the economy and society. Something which is not as dangerous as he's being represented by the media as far as the representation is concerned the because we've we've had a few guests on that have been saying that the way that the virus has been represented The way that the deaths have been represented and we were actually just having a conversation about when a doctor says someone died of Corona virus. It almost seems as if death there are a lot of people dying but potentially some of these people might have died anyways for example the amount of people that smoke in Italy have respiratory issues already. That probably died of respiratory issues but were assigned Cova nineteen. How do you feel about the way it's being represented what everything you said now is absolutely correct number of corona debt? He's big lie. They simply changed the ticket up saying he or she unfortunately and I apologize for families really and talking very general instead of saying he or she died terribly cats since the viruses. Every way you are included. But you don't know about it because your immune system cans the virus and you don't know about those people by laboratory virus laboratory founded virus. This sticker has changed to. She'd guy from Corona virus but the reason the reason he's very different they're put the total number of that he's not increasing simply change the sticker if that is true How is it that so many physicians or so many hospitals can all be doing this together? you know like like what would be the The motivating factor for them to do this but also like. Is it possible that all these doctors are quote in on changing? All these death certificates. No it's a policy to government policy. If you want to eat to lead you can see that. It's government older. They change you. Impatient headed corona virus. Remind any other reason must put him easy corona virus so did not absolutely and hearing these end where we have like eight da who died from corona every single. One of them is very old person with very serious. Bake crown problems. Corona was only by Chance Dr. You're saying you know the numbers are skewed and also do you think that this may be skewed as well. Because they're sharing they'll they'll say occasionally people dying that are younger. That are that appear to be healthy. Do you believe that that may be incorrect? Information as well through to say like three or four percent are kind of normal functioning human beings. It seems like when Look this is the distance and you always have One or two example which are not what I'm saying say gives you the Channel. Exch- for example from Stanford or. It's not far away from your phone from. Stanford vacation your chance if you're under sixty five if your age is under sixty five your chance to die from corona is equivalent to your chance driving your car ten miles a day and get kid. I mean when you drive you call. You may be kids. There's no question about it so if you drive your car ten miles every day. This is your chance to die from Kerala. You've got under sixty five and then going back to the question about the change in the death certificates a how like a do we have proof that these are government orders. What I have documents fishing. Don't you efficient Italian government document with instruction? How do you register person? Who is I would call it contaminated by the violence so they only go to corrode not less. They don't tell you about the cancer they don't tell you about the cerebrovascular accident. Don't tell you about the heart attack. They tell you a role in feel like maybe some governments kind of adopted some of this policy so that things don't look really nasty and ugly like Let's say that we are all going about our business and let's say that it did over flood The hospitals especially in these really highly populated areas like New York City. Do you think it was just in an effort to you. Know not like pile up bodies so to speak so that it just didn't it just didn't like horrify people or or or you wouldn't even have happened look Amazon and aid science. We had what we called snowball and they quoted the positive feedback. So you see. The government is afraid of the constituency. So they put these nations Giacconi measures. Nicholas Cage on C. Koneohe measures it become even more afraid. The government becomes even more afraid of the people and each snowboard. Everybody pays brain wash and and Tanks to Mr Zuckerberg and the ISO body on talking about in your country every day every day. Eight thousand Americans die. Did you ever see ISO eight thousand Americans? Never you see the interviews with the families. Never today which is. I've been in the bud. Every single I said before every single in Europe city is many and he's being interviewed and you cannot even try to speak. Science statistics now numbers when a family grieving families being interviewed. How can you fight no way? This is a classical brainwash seatrade. Why do you feel like Mark Zuckerberg is why you mentioning his name? Why do you feel? I mentioned. Been Nate Mason. I write these the I code. All BEEN YOU DAMNING. Then you so showed network epidemic. This is the first viral academic which is being carried on by the social network. This is an and they worked together and they and they each other so it's not so clear back. I mean he is. I mean they. I understood Ross's doctor. I've heard you mention and whenever anybody typically says this immediately there is a hailstorm of. You're wrong that's not true and what you've mentioned before is that the flu is than the corona virus not worth. Okay okay so it event because Evelyn resident. We don't know I mean this then must finish sometime in the future so as I said before. Eight sixty six thousand. Americans die rogue the flu two thousand twelve president. We have around fifty thousand American deaths. Edison mentioned to you. They are dead because all the I'm done calls so let's see imposing number. We'll approved king thousand number untainted approaches. This this is something we and before your ears. It's good injured nosing. Say Dog are. Are You yourself concerned or you worried about a contracting the virus at all you may personally. Yeah you personally. I am seventy five years old. I mean that rectal general these rats IBN member of classic which is our Congress. And I've been many big saw and not a trade toll because I don't have any under a problem. I I do my sport and More freight from road accidents and more famous brand crashes. Maybe you feel like this is like a also maybe more of a an epidemic of social media is what what one part of what you said there and then in addition to that maybe just are are careless nature toward their own health. No I mean Debbie said viral around us which is dangerous including the virus is also eaten by the way. Lanza by rose kills kids by rose. That's not the way corona is better than US Lanza because corona does patch too. I don't think it has to do with you know time because Reuss we attack your body like manny either by researchers at this moment attack your body produce. Antibodies and you all you all everything is okay so this is the setting. This virus is not really more. Then hawks who say all magnitude so it will attack you regardless of your health but if you're not healthy than it will have a greater impact. Yeah right so I WANNA I wanna ask you this Dr If you were able to obviously give the government instructions on how they need to approach this. Because I don't think I I understand what you would do but I wanNA clarify for all the listeners. What would your personal approach to handling this? Be versus input like any other like Eddie. Epidemic Epidemic May Zappia Dandy. Who say's epidemic that so many times. So what we should do is protect the race group like Budi gave Bob. Do I ever around the nursing home with with Eye God which way you have to produce it be so vapor showing you out lead getting e. Don't we have to protect the nursing home? We have to tell the stay at home. Don't mean good with anybody. Anti virus goes away either people on the sixty five year old when a president numbers go on with Your Business. Don't destroy the country. Don't destroy the society like in any other regular snow epidemic which we don't really mind. What's your opinion on masks will think that that would be effective ways easy controversy because American fishers usually used to say the mask is not good is not good for you. Good for the patient. If you are sick you'll masks. Were ASKING TO STOP. The spread the viruses. No so if you are F Word Karen. You must use a professional moss. But they change at Youtube as grain. Wash you see told Monolithic goal the citizens. Trente we tell you you don't need them us now you there's No side. There's no use scientific. He's sparkling gray wash. It's my understanding that the the CDC they also don't require someone to test positive from lab for Cova nineteen to to consider their cause of death as well right. I'm not Let acquainted were in a wrench statistics. But I should say the numbers emerging from Manhattan are people who the lab identified as positive no matter the reason day die. This statistics attend you. Kuroda I've read underlying medical problem eve finds the Virus Day. Go into the corona box in In addition to being a doctor also a politician. Do you have a tough time? having people listen to you out there in Israel or not me We still have the speech Many people that don't die of a mean I going on here. I was part of Titian. He's very interesting here. If you think about Netanyahu which you know pregnant He wasn't associated date. Caro- by elaborate. Doc Is there Gary. Yeah we got it. Thank you Is There? Is there a way to test to see if you have previously contracted corona virus and have gotten? Yes which they don't do what they do. Now is Kobe bestiality and putting them raise angrier than which heads you sat. Firearms is inyo anyway. No so the president's pence you about the presence of the virus however what they they should look for the antibodies. They fine the antibodies. In your blood. It can tell you are exposed. You never knew about it. Antibodies Candy by. Looks like it kids. Many other you are immune OCTA words. You are you so the test. Now which is more difficult to implement is look for the antibodies known as I G G globally in your blood and this will head the truth about the evidence of invite I'm also I think you may have addressed this Your answer may have been about the statistics but What I see being spread a lot and my mom has sent me messages of this. Because she's a concerned parent Is the is like young healthy people contracting corona and dying right and obviously you kind of you mentioned you know how social media is when someone a healthy potentially dies of this. It's going to spread like wildfire. And say you know kills young people too but apparently There's like not three. Yeah there's a very low amount of like young people that apparently healthy dying of it. What do you think the reason would be? I believe you may have answered already. Belmont sure reasonable. What that that it. It still apparently can kill young healthy individuals this is yet and I know almost every base in is red is right. He's a very you know everybody knows everybody. So what ATA is run because of our you know medic and privacy. Tokyo actually what happened but the hospital was diligent enough to say that this young person had very severe ground situation. And of course you may find the senior hurts. The Media May I'm pretty Fi- this singer essence story but this statistics chance on sixty five to die from Is Hundred Times thousand times less bed if you are so if I have to finish then okay well? I have a people you know. Yeah we'll we'll We'll wrap it up. Yeah okay because all I mean if you can answer one more quick question If if or when the vaccine does come to fruition. How do you suggest people are? What advice. Do you have for people when that does come? What these by that. What we do with the flu shop Sam Advice. Shaw is something. We've there we strongly recommend he morbidity by the way doesn't really limit use mortality but Detroit uses morbidity and the thought something any medical system anyone would Would recommend Ed. Let's pray that sunny up. Who have the alone And recommend nation is very clear glow to your clinic and get the shot so much for your doctor really really appreciate it In closing is there any country that has it right? At all ours. Everybody Kinda got it backwards by having a quarantine. Sweden look swayed in Sweden slightly. All say thanks again for your time. We appreciate it. Have a great wrestler. Big Thank you so much. Thank you guys. Got It right their from scientists but note I'd also say is like just because you know he's the scientists just because he's a doctor you don't need to take his word for it. You know you start to compile some of your own evidence and start to cause eventually eventually we're GONNA go outside right eventually when I go outside and so you know hopefully through this podcast and through some of the people that were rubbing elbows with we can make the best choices that we feel are for our our lives Because they at some point things will open back up and you know things like movie theaters concerts and stuff like that. Maybe those things will be a little bit different but you know hopefully through listening to this show and through seeing some other great resources out there. Hopefully we can all kind of have a more educated decision towards what we feel is best when they do say. Hey you can go back to work and you know I. I really liked that. We were able to speak to him just because like when when we think about going back to daily life first off. I don't think it's that far off but also I think the only things that are really GonNa Change. Our People's sanitary habits people are going to be better a hand washing and aim band like what when we were talking. People probably aren't going to touch each other as much outside of specific settings like in Jujitsu. People are probably going to be more clean before they come enroll on the mats right. They know that they're going to have to touch everybody. But before then going to see other people duck cleanup and make sure that they're not you know spreading something you know. What's really strange about that is that I I guarantee you that this is going to happen. People wash their hands more than ever and people will be. We'll try to be more clean and you're GONNA see studies come out on why that's not great either is not great either. I because we need that bacteria and my thought process is kind of not like I'm a dirty motherfucker but my thought process has always been like I. I kind of want to build up some germs like I don't. It's really really rare for me to get sick. I've been sick once in the last like five or six years you know and so I I've always been like hey man it's good to roll around rural dirt to get a little little. Bros here and there. I think it's our bodies are designed for that. You know you think about like think about. We've talked about some of this on the show. And he talks about like lotion and personal care stuff like that but you think back you know a few thousand years How do people wash themselves? They didn't have anything to wash themselves with all they would use this water and like I don't even know like they didn't have soap had no so they had no antibacterial anything in less. They may be recognized. Something as being antibacterial maybe they found some weird plant or some mud or something. But as far as I know it's like that's all you would bathed with his like you would just fucking hopping some water. That probably has some algae or something. He'd rub that shit all over you and you stink like shit all the time. Now go ahead another really cool thing that I think that he kind of highlighted and it's something that I personally haven't thought about was that it. It seems as if this is the first time that a a very viral pandemic has spread in the age of Social Media. So like we had he boola but he bowl isn't spreading that easy right so people would like joke about it and talk about it personally myself being. African get a lot of jokes about Imola right But it wasn't it wasn't like this. He mentioned the flew back in two thousand thirteen. I don't remember hearing crazy amount about that other than on. Tv But with facebook instagram. All the ways of spreading information like I he's right it's Zuckerberg's fault minutes faced with like you know you get what he was saying. Yeah Yeah depending on somebody's name. I didn't think that was. I didn't think that was great especially coming from scientists. There's so many great things that come from social media there's so many great things that have come from You know somebody like Mark Zuckerberg however I did like the twists. You know where he was like. This is the social pandemic or social epidemic. And that's really powerful like fuck man like could could we admit that that Can we can we can we? Not Maybe admit. Can we see that no I I can see that once? He said it. I was like Holy Kit. He's got a really good I. I'm not totally agreeing with him. But I'm like man he's got shit and he's got a pretty good point right there. No Yeah I mean I was talking to my mom the other day and she was saying how she saw video on facebook about the Like the Refrigerator trucks avenue back into New York Hospital. Because they're out of space or something I I don't know how real that was or whatever I don't can imagine somebody would wanna fake that. But because she saw that she was like really scared of the virus so I think we need to be perfectly clear that like. I don't think anyone thinks that anyone's faking anything. So like you know. They're they're not showing a truck you know pull up and although they could they could be they could be right but I don't think that it's fake. I think that what's being reported of. How severe the corona virus is not in terms of its killing people because it it will kill people it will attack anybody but if your health is previously compromised that's when you're going to be in the most trouble and that's when you should probably be being fascist and being like hey like. I don't know I'm just going to do it. The government said. I'm just going to stay in my house. That's probably a great idea if you're diabetic and you're seven years old and if you had previous issues I I don't think for one bit that any part of the news any part of this. I don't think the majority of the news that we're seeing is fake. I think that it is It's being like Oh maybe overblown or being shown too much. Like what is what is how ridiculous is this. How fucking insane is this that they compare it to the Holocaust? Like why are you doing that? Why why would you so many comments on my on my instagram? You know like are they. Comparing to the Holocaust the Holocaust faked to bell. You know and people are like and it's like are you fucking kidding me or like during trump's speech it's saying that more people died in nine eleven and it's like on the screen for like ten minutes. I'm like what value is that. Nine eleven is completely. These are both shitty situation. Caesar both terrific situations but they're not related to each other. I know they're maybe they're trying to give you a perspective of why this many that's like that's one day. All those fucking people died on one day and they had nothing to do with anything. There was fucking mind their business going to work and because some crazy motherfucker decided to drive a plane into a building though. Those people lost their lives. And they're not they're not related as an also to what is foolish thing to do. Like what a foolish thing to compare this pain. Is that pain? It's just I don't. I don't think that that's helpful in any way. So when I'm I'm seeing some of that stuff I think Andrew I think they are trying to scare the fuck out of you because people all men. I remember nine eleven. How bad that shit was. And this is worse than that. And it's like. Let's not even bother to compare tragedies because they're going to affect each person so differently there's no reason to even go there. Yeah it's you know there. There's two things like I mentioned my mom setting videos right but my mom doesn't have a facebook. Bright She She's not on instagram. Or anything. Like that lady. Yeah but she he. She uses WHATSAPP. Now what's happening? You probably know is an APP. That a lot of Foreigners US because allows you to message people in different countries so she can get messages from relatives we have in Nigeria relatives we might have in the UK et Cetera. And the thing that's happening is on WHATSAPP. There's so many videos being sent around just chain sent chain San About Corona and. She's sending all those videos to me and I'm seeing all of them and they're so sensational but there are about these these specific situations like that you said makes things seem more severe than it actually is and then this. Tony huge mentioned this in the podcast and it. It reminded me of what doctor the doctor said in this one about how How social media's making things worse there's there's some IMF like misinformation being spread remember? When Tony was like the other day I tested myself. I held my breath for ten seconds to make sure you know everything was whatever. Oecd debris yeah breathe. There was a few weeks ago when that was chains among like so many people on instagram. That if you can't hold your breath comfortably for over ten seconds you may have the corona virus and a lot of people were legit thinking that that was true like that like. Oh Gosh. I can't hold my breath for more than ten seconds. What might have corona right? But that that's that's not really there's really no big correlation bear. So it's just social media really is at an especially the way things are being spread around is making things seem worse than it actually is going to send a Andrew after this podcast. I'll send you a clip of this drill and communication. You guys will be floored by it. And hopefully we can maybe attach it to the show in some way or maybe can add the clip to the end of the show was just basically one person telling another person in front of them something and then the next person you've seen these hands before it's disaster like you can't even believe how how bad it gets you guys a seed. Joe Rogan talking. About how many steps you take and stuff like that. Yeah that was a really good Post he was talking about like it. Equated the amount of steps that you take with Your health and stuff like that in comparison to The people that have suffered from the corona virus and stuff like that. Pretty Pretty Wild. It's like Holy Shit and we've been talking about walking for long time here on this show. There is a comparison to the corona virus. Let me see if it's It's it's not It's not the corona virus. Sorry about that. It's it's it's your. It's your mortality rate period. It's not it's not in conjunction with This actual virus but it's just showing your Your overall health in general against everything. Yes that was really really cool. Yeah man if there's one thing that's happening now. A lot of people are taking walks. I didn't use to and I feel like that. You know that's GonNa be something. A LOT OF PEOPLE MAINTAIN. But also you've mentioned this market Andrew. You've mentioned this to people are going to start taking their health more seriously like losing weight. Stop eating bad foods so that they can be healthier so they're not as obese or overweight because I mean when you think about like well the people that this is calling. It's people that aren't that healthy right. So shoot there's a positive yes absolutely I mean. How much better do we all feel because we do exercise eat? Eat RIGHT LIKE YEAH. I. I'm not I'm not GonNa say I feel invincible to the virus but like I am nowhere near as concerned as I was in the beginning and then on the flip side. How scary is it? If you do your research and you listen and you actually understand that the worse off you are healthwise the worse off your you know your odds just went to shit if he can if you can track the virus so it sort of one of those things where like when everything's taken away all of a sudden want it so like you know all our own all our privileges but a bunch of our freedoms I guess we'll say are being like like hey. Maybe you shouldn't do that now. Everybody wants to do that. So I'm hoping that beard's looking pretty good I. It smells thicker. Yeah any can you show us on the side terrible little bit. This is probably better way. Yeah I keep it in a little bit longer and then so when I like do trim it up a little bit thicker. Look at home more fierce. Thanks Yeah Yeah I'm trying to look a little meaner because you know like I want people to get like two desperate during the lockdown like come in and trying to steal my toilet. Paper scare scare way that virus. Yeah you know I wanna ask you guys the connected your mustache his yes nine yours. Yeah looks pretty good. Now there's still like okay cut backs but it's not a strong connection. It's like when you have bad WIFI and there's little blips it's like facetime. Yeah yeah it's a slightly weak connection but I think if you can if you were able to be like a small person skipping from patch to patch like if you can actually jump across. I think I think that's good enough on this on air. We don't need a bridge small. How small of a person we talking? Well there. You go a little bit better but I'm GonNa admit this on air we go. I'd I don't use it all. The time. Only used on very special occasions and occasioned dive may not think I'm GonNa Sweat trending you know there's some there's like like a dark inner spray thing that my Barbara gave me once and it was like sorcery to fill in parts of my mustache and he used it here in ours was like Oh my God changed my life. It's like a it's like a fake hair follicle thing. Imagine if you were exposed to like doing Jujitsu and like all that shit brought on somebody's White Gi. Joe Okay Real quick though I wanna I wanNA get both of your asses opinions on this because there was some Jason that mentioned in your comments mark but a lot of people say this and people get very enraged that it's even being mentioned but if you go to the world or meter website right so far. Apparently this year two hundred ninety thousand people have died of suicide. Six hundred and eighty thousand. People have died of alcohol caused by yet. That's a caused by alcohol this year Three hundred and seventy thousand road traffic fatalities this year. Right what will and those are just going to continue to increase by the way. It's not like that. That's like that's the end of that. But when you guys hear those types of things what doesn't make you feel in comparison to what's going on right now. I have to say that I don't. I don't feel that they're I don't feel that they're that related. Because I think I think what what in in most people's brains I think that this thing is like new bright even though we're like no it's kind of like a flu but maybe it's a little worse because you can track the quicken in a taxi little faster and it is really you know if someone has compromised. Immune system is attacking hard so I think that people are like well people already die of heart attacks you know and and and people are always going to die of heart attacks. We don't have a way. We don't have a way to remedy that I I've I mean we've all heard the stories before you know some guys you know forty years old and just went for a run one day normally healthy Bam dot of a heart attack right and so I think those are things that people are like okay. Well people already died from that people. Already die from war like you know when you sign up for to be a soldier of any kind of participate in any form of military you already know. There's a potential risk that you may die As soon as you start driving you all these laws and rules and stuff and you you accept those things. I think this thing kind of feels like it's new even though viruses have been around forever. We haven't had anything Recently that's been anything really like this that I think people could make sense of and so I think that's why people are I think that's why people are so are so scared of it. You know so. I think in comparison to like car accidents in comparison to some of the other things. I think that everyone's like Oh. Yeah those those normally happen like I don't know what fuck this thing as you understood how much you know like as a doctor said like this thing is not over and I think that that was probably the most compelling thing he said was like we're not gonNA even know if it's worse or or or better than the flu or I don't even know how to say great way but you know we don't even know if it's worse than the flu yet or not you know people like it's way worse than the fluids like they're they're hounding me sometimes on some of my social media posts and the truth is no one knows yet not even the doctor we just had on or anybody else. Yeah I'll refer back to the Best Joker the Heath Ledger think. That's that's the one When he's talking to to face and he's like it all like a when he called the bomb threat to the hospital or whatever it was like this just disrupts the program. You know if you were to say like X. Amount of people die per day in prison. Who like well yeah. That's part of the program. They're they're kind of you know that's what that's what they do in prison. However when you disrupt the program with this virus that is killing people rapidly. That's when people get concerned are cert- freaking out. Really good seeing highly recommend it. He's he's wearing a nurse's outfit and pretty good. Yeah I remember that But that that is exactly what's going on right now or at speeds up the program because of the type of people that it's exactly right right. What about what about some lifting you guys get some good lifting in yesterday or today jump groped and I sucked my God hard. You get you get winded from it. A little bit too It wasn't no and let me tell you. I was the shoulders and Shoulders by burning right now. Oddly enough no it like I'm good at keeping by like all of that. Not Moving too much in keeping it in the wrists. But because I was like when I got this jump rope. It's one of the really thin ones that cross-fitters us that make it a little bit easier. Do Double under because I was so gung ho about being able to do double unders. I haven't used it in a long time and I was never able to successfully do lenders so I really just socked at like I was just really bad. It hit it up against day and I'm GONNA prove but yeah it was bad news. What an amazing form of exercise to you know. Jump Rove is is so convenient and one of the things that I learned from like while. Learning how to jump rope was too you work on it for a period of time and as soon as you get frustrated with it then you you put it down and you just work on something else at work on jumping jacks or jump you can even have the rope kinda going alongside you and you can jump with it. Yeah it's a similar thing but what I've learned. Is that like many? Keep trying and we start getting out at yourself. It's really. It's really hard to get back into rhythm like you're probably not going to get back into the rhythm but the hardest thing for me with jump rope is always my shoulders man. Shoulders get work. They just start burn and they start going on fire. My lungs feel okay. My calves feel okay. I could get the timing down and jump. Okay just like yourself. I can't double under But I can. I can do the rest of it but man my shoulder start to light up. Yeah Buddy of Mine Phil. He actually would put a A HIP circle on his clients to make that they kept their shoulders down and they're using just their wrists to get the N. Double undergoing I thought it was probably yet. Audiology pinched armed. Yeah so that way. You're your arms your just locked in and so when I get slingshot yeah he would actually put a hip circle like kind of like right over them and then just start with kit their body. Nice Tainos some people do it with a slingshot as well. Yeah I was. I was trying to figure out like I was like wait. Hit Circle the arms so there aren't stay rate. Okay is just like a cue to make sure that? They kept their their their arms close to their body as they went. I think I'm going to do that when I sleep. I need something with my arms man like there. You go all over the fucking place. I need them like pin down when when we had a we had jake. Somebody gave us a blanket and it's called a miracle blanket and wattle thing and it sounds torturous but I swear by swallowing you. Talk the baby's arms like in this. It has these It's a blanket that has like these tabs on it and these tabs come out and so you can fold the arms sandwich men like a little Burrito and you stuff them in their burn and I would like stuff. I'm all in there and just like stick a little pacifier in his mouth. He couldn't move. He's like he's like completely frozen but I feel like I need to sleep that way. My arms are over my head and falling asleep and I woke up this morning my shoulder with killing me and I'm like I need my arms like pinned down to my side. I don't know what the hell to do with them anymore. How do they usually end up? You end up hitting Andy or something. Like what happens everything yeah? I ended up hitting her. I ended up blacking off. I ended up. I ended up picking up my calluses. I mean all kinds of stuff knocking over sleep. I'm asleep wacker. You GotTa Watch out you wake up and do some Jews on your hand off happen. It's all over the place again. No I don't know if I've ever I don't know if I don't know if I've ever finished I think it's just start doing it. I probably fall back asleep. Soothing what are you what are you doing over there Nothing I was just Meditating changing position of Yeah well we're not going to talk about this but me and my buddy we were having to talk you detroiter Detroit. What stutter near my Dad's brothers? Dutch rudder really. Yeah really what's because you said he was talking about whacking off. And then you're saying so me and my buddy so I thought I'd just went straight to each other so the term if you and your buddy are whacking each other or something. So we'll take we'll take you you and your buddy for an example. You're you're holding your junk with your right hand. He's holding his with his right hand. Your left hand is on his right shoulder and you guys go back and forth back and forth so you're actually moving his right arm to stroke himself and he's doing the same to your right. Why ill it's a Dutch writer. You learn from smoking didn't you? I think I confirmed it with smoking. Yeah this is. This is why we need to get out of quarantine got back together. That thing you sent me yesterday the main with the Mario how twenty people and like everyone was like productive day. Yeah it was great. And everyone's like do we need to get out of Ford's everyone's like I have people listening. How many people have have been sent the giant black guy hanging his giant cock off the bed because I think everyone seen that. I've seen it for so many different things like people ask me. They're like. Hey these the right power shoes and they got it. The guy like wearing a pair of light converse I saw people like saying. Hey like is this. How you're supposed to wear your mask recording team and it's got like a little tiny mask on the end of this giant Weiner. Who is that guy is it just so so My friend the guy who started cameo Martin Martin knows that guy but the guy take iodide ear inn like Norton North Cal and Martin said he used to know that guy was like. There's no way you don't know that guy. He was like I totally know that guy. Yeah so you know. Tom Sierra Right so Tom Saga actually because he found out the name of this guy right because people are selling merchandise with you know like the guy on it and you know you know and stuff like that right. That's right. Yeah Yeah So. He found out because the photographer that took the photo apparently said Hey. It's not cool that all these people are making all this money off of this guy. Here's ED is. The AD is his family's over here. So what Tom Cigarette did is he found the guy's family and he made a shirt that that something about. I don't know wash your hands. I think with that guy's face on it said washing hands and he sold those shirts and he gave the money. So that guy's family these apparently he didn't really get into he when he was doing the porn stuff. It was in really hard times. It wasn't his main profession but that was pretty cool. Hard Times indeed are times indeed at-bat. That's a massive Haag. That is. He's huge he's doing. He's doing quite well in that department. He could check that off. Check that off. He doesn't need to worry isn't worried about that. I don't see I wouldn't own pants. No no right like just don't even bother like you gotta work that thing out at parties. Just we're really tight pants. Don't wear any underwear that's what you gotta do. Yeah right yeah you got to like form fitting. Everybody knows what's up all the time. How would that? What a dump. Oh I don't know why. Throw it over your shoulder now see. This is why people are like what's wrong with you people. We just got off of a serious really informational. Podcast economically are talking about about Dick's. This podcast has full spectrum of what everyone can expect from Mark Bells Power Project. We'll spectrum went on a about a three and a half mile walk run yesterday with a forty pound deaths. Don Him it was. It was awesome. Man It was it was it was. It was tough but kept the heart rate up pretty good the whole time. I think it was that I think my average heart rate was like one fifty five or something so it was like right at like. That's about like my Max is where I shouldn't really go too much higher than that but And I did that for an like. It was like about an hour's worth maybe even a little bit longer but yet felt really good and I came in in the house. Here we worked out in the garage and we had I got some thirty pound. Dumbbells twenty pound dumbbells. Ten Pound dumbbells a couple of MED balls. A bunch of bands. And that's about it. Yeah I did I did. Why did a bunch of curls and much squats and I've been trying to squat do one hundred squats everyday and I've been keeping with that very easily Hundred push ups everyday did like one hundred fifty of yesterday with the best on that was that was difficult and then staying on those ten minutes squats and stand on those Those ten minute walk so I'm thinking I'm GonNa have put together a little compilation of some stuff for people to try to do for them to have a little checklist. Because I had to tell you the first couple of days doing this it it slaughtered like I was like really lethargic like not lethargic in a sense like that I was feeling tired during the day but I just I was moving around slow and my youth her and stuff and I was like man. Maybe I'm doing way too many reps and maybe I need to back off of like sit in that position but today when I woke up I was like wow I feel I feel fucking awesome. Everything felt really really good. So I'm like maybe just adapting to it. Maybe I'm getting used to it causing that I think's happening with all of us at least the people in the exercise and fitness community. Is that the blown out and finding potential pieces of equipment that they haven't used in years like like that that best that you've been using like I you've talked to me and you've mentioned weighted vest me in the past but I don't believe you've really implemented at all for a long time right. Oh I haven't touched that thing in forever. I mean I I did put it on. Probably a couple weeks ago just to take a walk around with walk it super training but not haven't used that it's one of those deals it's like. I don't know you go outside. You know you're super training outside and you push a sled around and you cola. You do a bunch of stuff with it in your life fucking do that every workout but for some reason especially me like. I'm an idiot like I. I'm GonNa Bench. Swab him in a deadly. Every time I see it and I'm Gonna I'm GonNa be like oh I like what it seems doing. I should do some of that kettlebells stuff. And then I'd get in the super training like I'm going to bench. Yeah Nah I agree like after this is like done. I'M GONNA the Kettle biologist to Dang amazing man. I I'm I'M GONNA increase my skill with that hopefully jump roping. I'm really digging that. There's a lot of things I just WanNa like gay but continue to keep doing. It's it's Could be amazing to and and make you feel like crap about how like inexperience. You are with certain things. You're like man. I watched other people doing these drills and stuff and you're like man I I should go do some of that. Yeah no I agree. Yeah even doing something as simple as like a like circles with your arm you know like let's just a little warm up but then it's like fuck. This is actually kind of hard if he keep going and you just fill so lame. Because you're like wow really like I know of like my daughter can do this without even trying and here. I am struggling flea. Come on it's frustrating. It's really really awesome to have pieces of equipment that can track your heart rate being able to see your heart rate is is really really cool. And when I've been on my walks and stuff I'll throw punches or even just had my I'll walk the my arms out and it increases your heart rate. You know it's it's it's wild. I mean it's it's not a lot of effort and your heart rate will it will blip up just just a little bit was really interesting is is going on the walks with my wife and having heard track her heart rate me track mind. I was like you know what I think. Our heart rates will probably be the same for the most part but I said I I would imagine that you're going to recover way faster than me and that was definitely the case like we we ran. We ran a hill. I don't think I had to wait. Best on that day and my heart rate went. I forgot what it went to but it's skyrocketed pretty good. It went to like one eighty or something in hers. Went to about the same but then as like a as maybe fifteen seconds went by hers. Drop Down About fifteen beats you know. And then as another fifteen seconds went by Hers Drop Down About Fifteen more beats you know and it just it kept it kept separating out further and further from me as she is recovering super fast and she was back to normal because of all the swimming up that she's been doing whole or entire life and so it was that was that was really cool to see that and then be too. I'm having fun and I'm having a lot of fun like I yesterday. When I got done working out I was like I actually. At least at the moment I liked that better than I like lifting in the gym. You know it's it's been a lot of fun so we'll see we'll see how it turns out and then also like you don't always have an opportunity get outside you know like some days. It's rainy in some whatever but So so far so good. I'm really enjoying it would be using to track the heart rate so. I I ended up getting a bunch of different stuff to try to mess with so my my friend Joel Jamieson. He's the guy that trained mighty mouse Johnson for a long time. Joel Joel is just he Joel? Joel made heart rate variability He's the one who put on the map. And he has a product called. Morpheus and Morpheus is a It's an APP as well as a device that you wear and so I've been using that here and there but I also have A. I use my wife's Apple. Watch sometimes to try to track and that will watch actually seems pretty accurate I don't I don't really love the Apple. Watch because I think it's a rudest device of all time because people are always like checking every couple of seconds when you're trying to talk them keep looking at their goddamn watch and So I wouldn't I would never use it to have hooked up to other stuff but to have your heart rate track during exercise. Works really good but what I found works the easiest so far is just the I have a polar colour strap art rate monitor strapped. Just you just put on and it gives you gives you a lot of data through the APP but like Apple. I haven't I haven't sank it up to like other shit and I'm sure that you can but like all I'm I'm looking at is literally a heart rate on the actual watch itself and I'm seeing you know more about it but I'm not using it to look at any other data but what I like from the pull our devices just that all you do is simply put a strap around my chest and it's hard to do it's really easy to snap it on and then once that's on. I can track myself for a run I can track myself for lifting. I can track myself. Burn anything that I want to track with. So that's what I've been. I've been using mainly the strap a little bit more. But Joel is going to help me to get some of these heart rate zones that he wants me to. And then his morpheus APP really tracks a lot of heart rate variability stuff. But I don't know a ton about it I will allow. We'll have on the show at some point so he can explain so you guys can learn about it too. Yeah Dude so if you do plan on using apple wash download. This APP called a heart. Watch apple still has my watch since they're not open so I m many but a Chakma Harvard and all but heart watch is really cool when you open it up on the watch and you start working out You don't have to like you can keep an eye on it and like you'll be immediately. What your heart rate is like. At that moment you can download it on the watch on your phone and it'll like it'll track your heart rate throughout you know the whole day. I think it's called heart. Watch for It's a really really good APP for tracking your heart rate on the Apple Watch. But I'm really curious. I think I'm GonNa get it today because I want something to start tracking my heart rate hearing these workouts. I'm GONNA TRY THE WHOOP. I know you mentioned it to me. But like have you tried it or you. You haven't really used it I heard the worst thing Works pretty well I don't know if they make like a watch. But they do make some bands and it goes on like your arm or something instead of your actual like Rhys Straight. I what I I don't know a ton about it but what I what I think is good about products. Like that is that they. They're they're trying to make it convenient to utilize you know. They're that's what they're trying to do trying to really make it super simple to use the apple watch is probably the simplest thing especially if you're like don't know about you know putting his heart rate strap on and and all this stuff and the good thing about the apple watches doesn't need to be connected to anything else which that's really good but here's what it looks like from. The poll are thing I got is disappearing or is it showing pretty good. Let's see text. The morpheus thing or this is from. The poll are device device. Okay so it shows like my heart. Rate was one thirty nine on average the highest gots. Who was one sixty? It gives you a lot more data than just this but yet I went for an hour at three point. Five three point five miles Byrne seven hundred. Eighty eight calories which to calorie thing like you know. It's not alleged significant. What's what's interesting though. Is that in in like twenty five minutes of lifting. I burned four hundred calories. You know so like the calories that you would burn from the it you know you've got to keep in mind like these just these tracking devices and how many calories who burn as a bigger mystery than anything that these things could really figure out but it's just interesting to look you know that you get a little more bang for your buck from actual lifting or and or fit training but the benefit of walking in the benefit of like a walk run and doing things that are that are more casual is the recovery. That's something to think about too. You can do them every day. That's why I like walking so much that even a walk run like when I'm when I was running previously I was running a little bit. I was running a little bits. Who ambitiously as running a little too fast and I. My body wasn't prepared for it and it wasn't it wasn't the right time for me to mess with that but I want to mess with it. Like if you're thinking God man. I can't run like it. Really Jacks me up or whatever just running like thirty seconds and I'll just literally run for thirty seconds and keep your feet close to the ground. Like don't try to make like big giant strides are just like run like you did football practice back in the day when your coach told you to jog around the field job just enough just to get the pads bouncing so like made the noise and then he would turn around and you pick up your knees a little bit and actually run but just just start out super casual because all you're really trying to do is get your heart rate to be a little higher than it would be you know during a normal like Walker during a normal Yet during a normal walk not just say fielder rule was talking about it too in terms of recovering. Back Down to bring your heart rate down from being high mean. We always talk about the nasal breathing but he was mentioning. How nasal breathing really does help with that and if you track it does. There is a difference. We're recovering and bring your nose versus afterwards. It comes down a lot faster. I got a probably yesterday or maybe two days ago. The first time that it actually started feel better you know pretty much every day just feels worse because I'm still not used to it all at two days ago the first time that it felt start to feel a little bit better and then I noticed like when I went to nasal breathing it was way easier than breathing in and out of my mouth. I haven't gotten there yet. Remember asking you some questions about it while back because I was practicing it. But it wasn't consistent enough for me to get better at it. I don't Mike insieme like boo. What's going on with this? You know and so it just. It took me a while to adapt to it but now when I get winded. It's not like Oh you know. Make sure your nasal breathing it was. It was the go-to felt better than than just gasping for air in and out of my mouth. Yup Yup an exactly. What you mean takes a little time to get used to it. And then the one day just clicks. It's weird. Yeah there's like more. There's more there's more to draw upon from their feels like you get a lot more air with less strain. Get More Bang for your buck. You GotTa work out today Andrew. No I'm just GonNa go see the chiropractor tried to get my next out because it sucks. It's bad like like even like putting on a shirt or something is it's A. It's quite the Chore Right. Now so This happen a long time ago. Like present some weight and then you went to reach with Iraq And then as I turn my head looking for the hook that's where it happened and I just just the weird freak accident And oddly enough happened before on a on a bench press but The chiropractor that I knew back. Then he kinda he ganked my head like Bo hightower and it cured it like instantly so. I'm hoping that my boy. Dan Can do that today all he needs to do. Yeah but I don't think he's ever done it on before song into the see if I can like. Hey Dude like use me as your Guinea pig to practice on pulling people's heads off because I really need it you know yesterday. It's funny. You said that the the my lower back was like Feeling kind of Wonky like I had this weird sharp pain I sat down. I put my right leg over my left knee and I kind of turned up. I got up and it was gone. I see why these guys are doing this like I did. I don't know what I did but I just felt like something needed some pop and once it did it was just like everything was lead the best the best the best. So this sucks man. Like I can't put my head back like I'm constantly like pushed forward and then just hadid everything strained. It's terrible. Yeah Yeah I am stuck. Shed wish I could walk on your back buddy men. That'd be painful probably would help. The car should be able to do good work. That's happened to me before what you're going through right now and like The guy went through just like crack my shit and media. Oh world's different. So how you guys doing food. Wise guys You guys eaten. Well are you guys eating a little off plan which you doing? I'm sticking to a lot of monster mash doing that. I I need to go get some more stakes. Kinda ran out. Piemontese needs to ship out. Some new stuff actually needs need to put in an order but Yeah everything's been good I I got creative yet. The other day I put a bunch of Slingshot protein powder some oats and some peanut butter. And then what else a little bit almond milk just to kind of make it like doughy and then. I put it in the freezer and it came out amazing. It was almost like a like a protein bar. It tasted really good. Obviously put way too much Almond butter but It was really good Other than that I think Everything's been been on point. There's no There was a box of lucky charms. That made its way into the house. That is now gone Not because I threw out because eight at all but Not Everything's been good been feeling pretty pretty awesome except for the dam neck. He thinks he's been eating May I ask you this enter? Have you been eating more currently each day than you were when you You were when you were actually working out in the gym are eating less less definitely less Part of the like the routine has been thrown off and I'm not paying attention to what time it is anymore like. I don't have to be home at a certain time. 'cause already here so I'm definitely getting less meals in the cool thing is like I can actually cook to like instead of like microwaving stuff can cook food. So I've been having a lot of eggs turn it like perfect how to make eggs the most efficient way Yeah I mean like eight eggs for breakfast but breakfast is like at you know twelve or one. Yeah is it. It's been kind of awesome but with that then I'll blinken. It's like six o'clock and I'm like Oh shit I gotta eat dinner now. Yeah and then I'll be like I've missed. You know a couple of meals throughout the day so I'm eating less but you know my volume is down so I think you know it's it's almost Equating to the same. I guess maybe Yeah I'll asking that because that's that's what's been going on with me like I have. I think my my I guess my activity level my calories burned is less. There's no Ju Jitsu or anything And naturally like undressed. I still eat like a big meal. But I'm eating way less calories than I was My weight staying the same. But I feel like it's just kind of gone to a place where Were my new maintenances. Since I'm not able to do JIU Jitsu I mean I like I do kettlebells stuff. But it doesn't Equate. The amount of calories burned doing that. No weights gained. You know and A my eating all day which I feel like did the easy thing right now. That happens and I've been having people. Send me this is like the your board serrated fridge yeah you have any Restrictions for yourself seem like. Are you trying to intentionally do a little bit of fasting or wait until later in the day to eat or something like that? I'm always waiting later in the day now like I'm not eating in the morning. I'm not eating slip pretty much after six. Pm that's my five or six PM that'd be my recommendation. Everybody like just. I know. There's some people that that are going. You know either way but like losing body fat is always a healthier Is Always Healthier than than gaining body fat and you know for some people that are already lean. You could probably make an argument Suheil now. It's not a great time for you to focus on getting any leaner because maybe that would cause you like some undue stress especially if you're thin or something like that but in most cases most of us could always work towards being healthier and I think fasting is just the easiest way like just eat a little bit later in the day. Maybe if you can try to stop eating you know two hours forty bed the simple simple stuff you know and I i. I've been able to do that over the last few days the first couple of days that I came out here to data I was just eating breakfast and stuff and I'm like this is going to be meeting all day. That's what this is gonNA turn into because that first meal really sparks a lot of hunger for me so now it's like okay. Well I'm just going to wait until after just like normal. My normal routine is that I usually wait until work in workouts are Dutton when working workouts are done. Then I can then I can eat you know. And so that's That's why I've been doing but I don't know if you guys are aware of this but today is day number ninety nine. Oh my God yeah. Today's Day number ninety nine so yeah we got one more day and then going to eat a bunch of cheesecake and then carry on. I don't I don't know I just made that up. Actually I would like to Kinda start like a new challenge but I just haven't really decided exactly what town my wife it's like I'd love to tell people like hey man push to like the end of the month and let's try to. I know there's still people that they kinda like need a challenge. They need something they need. Need something to really like. Lean into you know talking to people about dropping ten pounds. I just think you know. There's there's people that are on the other side of things saying like. Hey that's not really healthy. You know to be stressing yourself out about with your body weight. You know during this time but I disagree. I think it's always good to have a goal. I think losing body fat is actually extremely healthy. You know man. That's what I was GonNa ask you like. I've been seeing a lot and I understand why they're saying it but I think that I feel like they should just be a little bit less. Gung Ho about that. A lot of fashiony yet did they're like this isn't the time you know to to about losing body. Fat this is the time to try and feel good Blah Blah Blah and. I understand it like especially if you're going through some financial stress etc others a lot of different stressors that are entering people's house right now but why the fuck would you still not try to get ahead on your house. Like why would that be something that no? That's the thing you should throw out and like focus on just feeling good and whatever like I think that. Yeah we should focus on feeling good but we still shouldn't be neglecting trying to get healthier. It makes no sense right. I mean a lot of times. People go through a bad breakup or they go through something hard and they want to you. Know Lean towards the alcohol. And you know you're like finder stand you know and have a little bit of that probably does make some sense But at the same time that's a really slippery slope and it's probably not productive is not doing what you think it's GonNa do you know it's not? It's not really going to accomplish what you're hoping it's GONNA accomplish unless you're rational person unless you're like you know what man I'm just GonNa and go out. How a couple of drinks with my buddies and just share share. How I feel at the moment. Like that's Kinda different than like going out and getting fucking smash right and I think that There's never a ton there's never a time to let your defense is down. You know I think you know now is a is a better time than ever to everyone else's like I said it earlier everyone else's on pause. Now you can kind of think about like this is a good opportunity to get ahead. How many people are going to lean during this? You know what I mean like. We're GONNA get leaner during the how many people are GonNa get bigger have more muscle or be stronger than not that many. But you could be one of them. You could get smarter. I mean you could just depends on what you WanNa do you know. What do you want to do with your time? You know some people go to jail on the become brilliant prison to become brilliant because they just read book after book after both other people just waste their time. Some people go to prison and get Jack. Use this time as a time to kind of like you know reform and maybe make some progress towards the goal. Yeah Yeah you got more time now.
