"Great work. She did everything I just wrote it. She did a great job. But I'm thinking of releasing it in an English formats next few days anyway although GonNa try to do that. And then the last one was really proud was called luck. You store there and we basically manage to make a little short spaghetti western in our whole notion. Yeah Yeah in all lacy later I'll make sure sure all that stuff megalomania no I I I. There's also English subtitles. You can you can. It's it's stupid little okay. It's really really stupid but you know it's just the fact that we can make it in our house you know with with with zero budget. It makes me feel satisfied so I mean I think comedians can somehow find a way to get you know but stand up and you know this. I'm sure is the most pure essence of comedy it's like the pure core combine is no barrier. There's no foul sophistication. There's no cost you. Nothing it's just you and the fucking audience and you better make them laugh now right you know and that is something that I do. Not want booths right no matter what. I didn't really take time to think about that appreciate that. You said that it's like if we do go into these. These ripples of we gotta go back to the House now. Time to turn the lockdown. It's going to be so detrimental to that. Is You need that? I mean that that is stand up comedy. Is that on inside you girl guy on stage talking to a group of people. That's the way it works. You can try hard you can do. This live like we're recording this right now to do a show in that form but it's never won't even be close to what that that connection between obvious. We're we're being poetic about it. Why not with the fuck me? I love it so much. It's like an and you know that like standup is always better. In a certain way when it's the Mo the more intimate. It is the better if you ever went to see like a standup show in a in a big arena. A hand up. Yeah exactly because it doesn't win committee people exactly but when you ever went to see that one comedy show. Maybe if somebody you've never heard of you know but he was just like twenty of you and you're all huddled together and there. Was this one emulate clawing at the comedian leg of the best. You know that's the best you know and then you just use this this this back and forth with the audience. Maybe there's some guy who is too drunk and he was ruining show but somehow you manage the both drew. I mean that is the pure essence standup you know. And so the the closer you are the better. It is the farther you are the worse. Which is why I hope that. Have distinct doesn't kill that close. God maybe the comedian you dislike be like maybe available had like a little little personal bubbles like boy in a bubble actually never saw that movie that was John Travolta all kind of go through the world now in our own little bubble suits here. I never seen that. I should watch it when they should watch a good movie or no not at all. But I heard it's not at all the good movie that I must see it and some movies you'll watch because they're good. Us lots of. Because you have to John Travolta bubble that might be a peak into the future. We were going man. We're we're become a bubble society. We have literal safe spaces at that point. Do you have your safe-space on as a brand of bubble got the new safe-space bubble on the side of it. What happened to all the safe-space people they don't give a shit anymore. I guess I guess when things are going good you look for problems that don't exist right now. We've got a real problem. We can put you got a real problem. It's like what you said. Fuck you you know I. If I go to the supermarket I could die. They did have their bill with what you said is like I don't feel comfortable with a fucking virus ravaging my friends my front door okay. I don't feel comfortable because the world doesn't make me feel comfortable. Sorry you know God. We did have that brief moment though. And when well actually? I guess it's still going on now. When when trump referred to it as the As the Chinese Virus Shit. But it's funny though because here in American media there's there's a video floating around right now of before that became an issue of all these media outlets doing the exact same thing which I was with trump the fact that he had crossed out corona and rewritten Chinese. I don't know I don't know legitimate. Not just like saying what he said Chinese virus that he actually said. Oh no here. It says Corona. Let me just write from that out and write Chinese and let me put a little little man with the hat to you. GotTa Ankle after that just fixes thing. This is a little too. Pcp Sir we need to. We need to spice up a little bit. Can you make a wall reference? Can we wall out this virus? Can we somewhere but did you hear that Prince Charles got it now? I shouldn't say things that are mean that trump people everybody everybody's already said Okay and of course the big. The joke that went around Italy goes the fact that Kudo and a means crown into the League and so the joke is this is the only crown however have I mean it was the first joke that came out and everybody made. It knows that works. It does work. Yeah yeah the so far. He is the least sympathetic of all the people who have it. He's he holds the crown of being being Lee sympathetic for me. Not but it's it's it's significant that person who's like wealthy and six can can still get hit by lemass about this. Oh have they still not released the The illness of of the pope is that still being kept is the pope. Seek is the pope. Is Folks Secret? Hope ill is. I didn't know about this Pope News.

"That like in a week's time there probably won't even be much of a debate even states or in England. I hope I mean but I don't. I don't think there will be because I think what happens is is a strange sense of human. Is Survival Instinct? That seems to kick in and also good sense of community writings to kick in as well. I think you'll you'll be experiencing that in as well. I don't think it's specific to any one culture. I think it's a typical just of the human nature that at some point we kind of like just help out each other. You know and I think that I think that's key that kicked in about a week here and if they will kick in probably to weaken over in the states and England I mean I think I think we can get over this. I don't think it's it's GonNa be it's GonNa be tough afterwards because of the economic consequences and everything social differences and stuff and I don't know how long it's GonNa last but I think we can get over it. That's an angle that I don't think people who appreciated his the the after effect month from now two months from now six months from now a year from now the ripple effect of what this is GonNa do. I I don't even under I. I can't understand it because I don't know enough about you. Know the the workings of Finance and all that but I do know it's going to be a a a huge imprint. Much like like nine eleven was the economic residual effect of that in there but this is so much larger on a world scale. I I it just. It feels like everything is going to be brought. I mean just looking at my finances personally. I was finally getting somewhere financially where I could have some money set aside. I was saving and building up now all my money has been redirected into you know. I'm furloughed now. And and now using money to to you know we bought a supply of food to have and everything like that and get bills kind of you know where we at least caught up and everything. You've got everything under control I'm not. I'M NOT DUMBING Indiana Shave. Most people probably I mean I think you could save. It may be okay. It's thought that you all that you know economic all that work that you had to do to get that money but at least you had it when yet exactly you know. Ironically if you had been focusing only on your comedy career it'd be because I know a lot of people who actually lived off with comedy and emanate and anybody who doesn't know living off comedy is very weird thing you've ever surviving while doing comedy is kind of. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah me you bad at the best of times even if you have multiple TV credits and you're still eating Rama noodles. That's fairly absolutes. The reality of it's crazy. I mean the the reality is a comedian. Lives off comedy. Because the only thing he can do because he loves it so much or he has no other opportunity in the world. That's when you live off of company. I know Comedians who are a really in dire straits at the moment and Comedians and not just convenience also come authors. I mean I have a little bit of a network so I mean I know I speak rhythm daily. Anybody who's on the creative end. Who creates things that are consumed? Just for pleasure. You know the not necessities so to speak. I think anybody in those kind of backgrounds of that's was your source of income. Things are arguing greatly change for you. But you're lucky actually if you think about it because you focused a lot on the podcast and podcasting is is going to survive. Because it's you know it doesn't require direct contact and I think that that was the big difference between American comedy in European comedy when it hit is that European comedy didn't really never really went into the whole direction of podcasting introduce still lie. You know and there were a few comedians. That were kind to in podcast but I mean to be fair. The only people listening to them were other comedians. There was no general audience listening to them. So but while in America you have this whole culture. Podcasts kind of started ten years ago or seven years ago. Whatever exploded to the point where everybody had their podcast and now is a radical parts of comedy. So I think that Comedians can can take advantage of that in the stance to stay relevant. Stay alive while in Italy. They're kind of doing it now. But it's it's like they're catching up but yeah I mean I think the podcasting thing is going to weather the storm a little bit for for for the American comedians. Maybe the entertainment industry will will be different after this. Well what what's in demand versus. What's not my right. No I have no idea I mean all I know is that I think that. Now they were talking about releasing movies directly on my arms if that basically means if this is like the last nail in the coffin to physical cinemas and that's standing. Because I'm a big fan of movies you know I've got up. Forbidden Planet Poster Back. I love films you know and and stuff like that and I love going.

"Be able to run on taking away medical services for the people any politician from this time on any country. United States England's Europe. Whatever if they say we're going to give medical services to everybody regardless of their income or anything. That person will win you know. So it's it's GonNa Change the division of politics in certain in a certain way. I hope for the better because one of the positive things of war and there are positive things. Actually WE'RE NOT. Is that usually Society comes out changed and technology always makes great leaps after a war because of war. We have atomic power because of war. We have the Internet and things like that and because of where research and so if this is a word that means that the medical complex will have enormously after it's over and that's a positive thing but I we have to look through. It does make me appreciate the how terrifying biological wars could be sorry the MSCI appreciate how terrifying biological wars like. That is that this was an intentional thing we did. This is that it is right now. So the whole the whole conspiracy or I don't know if it's conspiracy the whole theory about It perhaps being man made and everything I liked to collect data before. I say that anything actually is arisen but I mean like a before before we started recording. I was saying that Yesterday there was this social media moment here in Italy where they released a video that had been recorded on like a new show five years ago and in that video. They said There's these Chinese scientists and they're working on Cobra virus or corona virus Bats in a secret laboratory in China and some.

"Are not you know unheard-of on the in human history just unheard of for us born in what the eighties late Seventies. Whatever you know. We've or nineties we. We've we've never experienced that we've always experienced prosperity. There's wars illnesses but it's always somewhere else you know like is a war in Syria. There's a war over there. There's a thing and illness in Africa but there's never anything actually in your home so I think we kind of have that perception that at the beginning it was like. Oh it's in China but it's never gonNA arrive here in any way. The Chinese are dirty rats. The dogs bats. That's why they get it or we don't eat bats. We're not gonNA get it then. Italy gets it and I think the other countries are like well. The Italians are idiots. You know their governments always a mess you know. They're always kissing each other they like. Don't ship eat They're always a we have a better system over here in America and England. So we're not gonna get it and then you get it and then you don't know really know what else to do on nobody else to blame it on you know and I kinda ember re looking at the BBC. The before it hit you know and the there was like this. I think it was like a Norwegian Epidemiologist you know. And he's like very very very very serious. No sense of humor very very logical. And he's like Oh yes of course the UK is going to be hit very bad just like Italy and the and the The journalist is like what do you mean like trust like? It's that's not possible is yes. This is a virus at how viruses act by do not discriminate in any issues like shock. You couldn't believe that we need like talion. We're not Italian again. Hoods wittily and he's just like oh no. This is a virus. It just works this way. You know. It's a law physics. You don't hit you in the same way that it's it's like just the the rays of the sun or.

"People. For example I was reading homeless. People are are still on streets. They're not receiving any money. Because there's nobody to panhandle from you know and they can't even scavenge for food because The fast food restaurants are closed. There's there's there's no food in the back I suppose maybe in the back lots of supermarkets. They're still open. But we're going to go. And there are sharing these. That are providing food for the homeless. But they have to also respect the social distancing. So there's like these very very very long lines of people homeless we have to respect social distancing. And it's IT'S A it's a humanitarian disaster or a series of levels right. You don't even think about it if and when we we get out of this and I'm Gonna I'm GonNa definitely hope we got us. It's going to be interesting to look back at how the homeless population was affected by this and also the lower economic end of people in pressure the spans every country. Because I mean we're already seeing it here when I started to hit you know and and you start hearing about all these athletes getting tested positive right. There's there's quite a few. But the fact that they were getting these these very limited tests these athletes who are in peak health condition probably on the lower end of of risk for the most part. They're all having access to to the test and the test is as I understand. It is like the key component controlling this to knowing where it's coming from and where it's going and who hasn't who doesn't in our at least in this country the biggest holdup really is the is having tests available for people who invested all that. So I'm GONNA I can only assume it's partly because I'm because I'm jaded. I don't trust the government as it is is going to be to look back five years from now all the all the cards around the table and we see what what had really went down How how much economic position or social position allowed to get tested entreated versus those who didn't have it who were who were deemed expendable at the time. What's going on in La Right now? Is that what's happening there because they've got an enormous homeless both enormous and it was. It's so bad that over last year or so. We were already hearing about all these. You know strange diseases and stuff were reoccurring things that haven't been around for years so I can only and that compounded with you know drug use issues and things that are that have plagued the homeless. They're in all over anyway. That all just kind of compounds the issue here not to mention. There's that that thing in people's heads like other homeless Fuck Them. You know that kind of thing. Yeah but even if it's like they're homeless fuck them. It's like it's let let let's take it from the least human point of view for. Let's say that you do not think homeless people deserve anything you know. They're they're failures. That rejects. It's all their fault. You know there's a laws presented went through the bill away just rights Atlit. Let's take it from that point of view. It's imagine I'm that type of person. Okay even there. You still have to look at them like pigeons. If you've got so many sick pigeons eventually those sick pigeons are going to make you sick right right so it's not even it's not even. I mean even from that point of view. You still have to take care of the situation. Yeah you know what I mean. How they choose to take care of those is kind of what terrifies me. And you are are are not as as Conspiratorial as I am knowing we argued a law about that you know I think the opposite of in fact during that podcast. We were having with cloud I actually said. Sh actually said John. You're basically the opposite of conspiracy theorist you're like you believe the government is always.

Who the fuck really knows at this point look into it regardless of the cause and regardless of the reality of the situation the uncertainty of where we are in now and we're going in all aspects of society the economy health freedom loss is a little bit scary not scary and beyond self control and social function yet but still a little scary.

"The best vehicles that we have had the chance to drive and evaluate and John Vincent is here from US news and World Report along with truck girl Jan and we are talking about the S. U. V. category which now of course is the biggest category in car purchasing listed and still make up a good sized chunk of the segment SUVs where the money is absolutely yes they make a lot of money off a few reasons Americans love their issue vis there is too big divisions about S. U. V. is there is the S. U. V. which is a true SCV which is probably based on the truck platform all has remnants of a truck platform and that's what we would call the original sport utility vehicle then there is the modern cross of which is really started its life as a sedan now has been raised and as had the chassis beefed up some to do slightly different things and as the trend in call liking changes so does the engineering but understanding they still think some companies eight years to work through a car and work out exactly how it's gonna look how it's going to be and new because like for to try to get that down to two years there at about four years right now so if I go into a design center of Ford and say and in engineering since a design me a new mid size SUV they start today they could have it on the streets in four years time which is pretty incredible part of the you just change the bad doesn't have it yeah which sometimes in them knows no fingerpointing afford but sometimes people have done and maybe still do so you'd be looking at the top five picks for S. U. V. this year and you know being with highly from US news and World Report it's pretty predictable what's at least in your one to three but we look at very practical buying reasons when we make our rankings and reviews and yeah so what what goes into a give give us a sort of a flavor of what you would look at so our reviews are based off the consensus opinion of America's top automotive journalists Kay plus quantitative data on predicted reliability safety and a number of other factors all right so we come up with rankings for every vehicle every major vehicle in the marketplace and is if you go to your issues US news and World Report you can see those rankings presumably yes you can see the rankings for new cars and used cars going back almost ten years all right so let's talk about you have the top five here that you've picked out that were around last year the twenty twenty Honda CRV is in your number five spot that is the most predictable one I could imagine it's just a rock solid vehicle rate does everything that most consumers want across over today and finally coming out with a hybrid this year as well finally coming out with a hybrid which will certainly be well accepted the marketplace yeah I store it at the San Diego order show over the new year and it looks great I mean this is not not a massive change some some technology update say in a few tweaks here and there but it's exactly what you'd expect from Honda plodding along in a solid direction on the solid line with solid results exactly it's definitely even now but a lot of people like vanilla now all talking about a segment that that mid size crossover is I guess is a compact crossover to getting a quick break when we come.

"In the co host yet today John Vincent from US news and World Report I had an opportunity on a recent trip to the Tokyo Olympics to see a lot of really interesting stuff that's coming to the Tokyo Olympics in the summer of twenty twenty and I'm standing in the middle of this parking lot in Japan look at all these crazy because I get a tap on the shoulder from a friend of mine who happens to be doing P. offer Bridgestone and said I have something cool to show your first will surprise I'm in Japan too but second of all she took me over and she showed me some of the new bridge stone stuff that is coming to the Olympics in twenty twenty and it was mind blowing in the sense because I couldn't get my head around how cool this was and I didn't also realize that when you drive a bus up to a curb how many problems that can create for shredding tires on the curb wall and it seems to be a real problem and then the this the height of the curve of people getting in especially with bicycles a wheelchair as that was very difficult usually have to step into the road and then step on to the bus and so I started paying more attention to this as time went on and I've been driving around when I see a bus stop in front of me what you people so step off the curb and step into the bus they will stop so far away from the curb privileged to have a teacher he gives John is on the phone he is the president over a bridge stone and you guys have invented something called a plus stop various coop system which is what I saw in Japan and far be it from me a layman to explain how it works maybe TJ you can give us the this synopsis of why you invented this and and what it actually does well no thank you very much for having me on and thank you for recognizing this new technology so what we did for so we're doing is we're in conjunction with with other partners including academic institutions and the government we recognized that there really were problems with the way that those folks would be getting on and off the bus standing at the curb there was a man efficiencies and how the system worked there were areas of potential safety concerns as you just said people might have to step down and then back up and then of course there's difficulty for those with with me there is no chairs for other types of physical care challenges that might need to have the simpler way of getting on and off the bus so in working with Yokohama National University Bridgestone engineers found a way to design the slope of the current interact a little bit more seamlessly with the tire we also say by having the slope of the curve change that curb change the shape of the tires and on the side wall would have less vibration west where so there's an in addition to having the benefit to our help of course safety and efficiency for the bus system so there was a great partnership and now we are the Tokyo Olympic committee has fought Hey this is a great opportunity for us to build new technology into our athletes know which so we're gonna have thirty two bus stops within the athletes village we're going to test out this aerial system and see what the new opportunities can be to create efficiency in transportation occasionally is not of the front of our mind but of course along with the regular Olympics comes the para Olympics and many of those people who take part in the Paralympics are in wheelchairs and currently the way it works in most cities is if you want to get on and off a bus with a wheelchair or train or anything like that you usually have to have some kind of lift mechanism or some kind of ramp that comes out of the bus and then goes on to the curb and then you have to wheel yourself on the rap is only put down once the driver recognizes that there is somebody that needs to use the ramp with a wheelchair however this sort of read uses a lot of that and and makes it easier for everyone to get on and off right absolutely it does so you can see and we're continuing to track the speed and efficiency with which this occurs as well as the reduction in the incidence of how in less frequently people need to you know our Jobst for potentially as you know they can stumble or even those of us that are few fortunate not to have any physical disabilities can be a bit of a challenge watching that gap between the boss and the curb we gonna carry on in just a moment but let's take a quick break here on how order expert if you want to hear the whole interview it's going to be on our.

"I'm the host Nick miles John Vincent sitting in the co host seat for today from US news and World Report you know I'm a fan of the mini brand and I enjoy I'm on my second many right now I enjoy it because it's got a million and one things but it's like being on a fairground ride every time I take it out it's that much fun to drive well I many revealed at the LA Auto Show first time they put it on the floor of an old I show it was their electric version of the many which is even more exciting because hopefully it'll have a lot more talking a lot more fun but to here to tell us a little more about the possibility of only one of these in the future from many himself Patrick McKenna pass the many electric did they get good reception in LA from the journalists and from those visiting the stand absolutely great to be with you the what was pleasantly surprising for me is the journalists to really focus on electric only they are probably some of the most optimistic because they think it's a perfect use case for the car a lot of them had experience from ten years ago from the test pilot we did with the car called the many Easter that thrilled to see the car back and they're really excited about the value proposition at twenty nine thousand nine hundred at the starting price hand and if you live in our again you can get that for ten thousand dollars less because our again has crazy incentives and then there's the federal incentive which I presume your you're a long way from hitting your cap of the federally sentence right yeah thankfully we still have sometimes a were available for the full seven thousand five hundred dollar federal and then you have state credit which are in many states these days which anywhere from five hundred dollars to four thousand and and you also have fuel savings on top of that so we compare it to a regular Cooper **** hard top gas powered and you know that can be as much is like three thousand seven hundred dollars averaging ten thousand miles a year for about six years so you know you can do the math and what your your mileage is but it it's really compelling so the car gets under twenty thousand when you really factor all these elements then is the car going to be sold in all fifty states all fifty states what we're doing is kind of a unique reservation system that actually opened up in the next few days so we're gonna timestamp everyone making a reservation at the five hundred dollar down payment that that many USA dot com or shop mini USA dot com and IDT putting five hundred out dollars down on on the model and then we'll follow up with calls from dealers to organize the transaction so how does the time stamp work when he goes from the first person to you know on down the list that made the reservation so it doesn't matter what state you live in like in test so you get your car in California used to get it for us but that's different be a with the way you do it yeah it's a it's a it's an equal opportunity system we decided to really make it available in all fifty states that all dealers were also doing that on a another model the GPA and it's working quite well and it's a good way to get really get the cars to where the customers are all right so let's talk a little bit about the vehicle pop from fuel saving and buying it for under twenty thousand dollars what else is it going to give us so the nice thing about this car as even the entry level car has a lot of standard equipment so LED headlights navigation CarPlay comfort accessories keyless entry heated seats and it has DC fast turning so we can do an eighty percent charge in about thirty five minutes that's not bad distance is about is is over a hundred miles on a single charge of this which is you know it's turning out to be less than a lot of people would need they give is gonna be hard for someone to use a hundred miles listed during long journeys and the average American commute in daily is about twenty miles so that's almost five days of round trips there and then you just pocket at that you're working you have it fully charge in the day which is kind of cool as well.

"In the co host yet today John Vincent from US news and World Report am I had an opportunity on a recent trip to the Tokyo Olympics to see a lot of really interesting stuff that's coming to the Tokyo Olympics in the summer of twenty twenty and I'm standing in the middle of this parking lot Japan looking all these crazy because I get a tap on the shoulder from a friend of mine who happens to be doing P. offer Bridgestone and said I have something cool to show your first will surprise I mean Japan too but second of all she took me over and she showed me some of the new Bridgestone stuff that is coming to the Olympics in twenty twenty and it was mind blowing in the sense because I couldn't get my head around how cool this was and I didn't also realize that when you drive a bus up to a curb how many problems that can create for shredding tires on the curb wall and it seems to be a real problem and then the this the height of the curve of people getting an especially with bicycles a wheelchair as that was very difficult you have to step into the road and then step on to the bus and so I started paying more attention to this as time went on and I've been driving around when I see a bus stop in front of me watching the people so step off the curb and step into the bus they will stop so far away from the curb privileged to have a teacher he gives John is on the phone he is the president over a bridge stone and you guys have invented something cold plus stop Barry Ellis coop system which is what I saw in Japan and far be it from me a layman to explain how it works maybe TJ you can give us the the synopsis of why you invented this and and what it actually does well Nick thank you very much for having me on and thank you for recognizing this new technology so what we have for so we're doing is we're in conjunction with with other partners including academic institutions and the government we recognized that there really were problems with the way that the folks would be getting on and off the bus standing at the curb there was a deficiencies and how the system worked there were areas of potential safety concerns as you just said people might have to step down and then back up and then of course there's difficulty for those with yeah we need the wheelchair store other types of physical care challenges that might need to have the simpler way of getting on and off the bus so in working with Yokohama National University Bridgestone engineers found a way to design the slope of the current interacts a little bit more seamlessly with the tire we also say by having the slope of the curve change that curb change the shape of the tires there and on the side wall would have less fibration less where so there's an in addition to having the benefits you are of course safety and efficiency for the bus system so there was a great partnership and now we are the Tokyo Olympic committee has fought Hey this is a great opportunity for us to build new technology into our athletes delish so we're gonna have thirty two bus stops within the athletes village we're going to test out this burial system and see what the new opportunities can be to create efficiency in transportation occasionally is not on the front of our mind but of course along with the regular Olympics comes the para Olympics and many of those people who take part in the Paralympics every in wheelchairs and currently the way it works in most cities is if you want to get on and off a bus with a wheelchair or train or anything like that you usually have to have some kind of lift mechanism or some kind of ramp that comes out of the bus and then goes on to the curb and then you have to wheel yourself on the rap is only put down once the driver recognizes that there is somebody that needs to use the ramp with a wheelchair however this sort of read uses a lot of that and and makes it easier for everyone to get on and off right absolutely it does so you can see and we're continuing to track the speed and efficiency with which this occurs as well as the reduction in incidence you know how in less frequently people need to you know our Jobst were potentially as you well they can stumble or even those of us that are that are few fortunate not to have any physical disabilities can be it can be a little bit of a challenge watching that gap between the boss and the curb we gonna carry on in just a moment but let's take a quick break here on how order expert if you want to hear the whole interview it's going to be on our auto expert dot.

"The studio John Vincent from US news and World Report at U. S. news World Report just came out with their new news best vehicle brand award for the best vehicle brands award do people shop by brands John order they shot by mortals both a lot of people shop by brands because that's what the families of always gotten so that's always the safe choice my dad told me never to buy for what's because his dad didn't like him but it was you know I like four to have like pretty much every car out there the Bram thing do you think it makes a difference by you know people looking at the brands over Ole Ole do they still when they buy a Chevy to they still look at a Chevy verses fifteen hundred ram or a F. one fifty I think they're focused on the kind of model they want in the brand is get out they look at the brand as where they can find that model all right so they're looking for actually be they might go to monster first to make a kia first and I got a Honda first when you made this list up what did you look as criteria so US news is research based with our reviews and what we did is we took the top ranking vehicles out of every brand and compare them to the top top ranking vehicles out of every other brand to see which brand have the highest level of top ranking vehicles and so when we say top ranking is that that's what customers lying or that that's based on our new car rankings and reviews okay and and how is that gather has the info gathered is it to get people to buy the vehicles at talking to people at tester them at U. S. news we use a consensus based review structure where we look at reviews from across the auto industry and to pull data out of them mix it with quantitative data on predicted Riley reliability safety and a number of other factors and come up with a ranking so let's talk about who made the bottom of the list we don't have the bottom of the list we celebrate the good the good killing me all right the bottom is but it's not something we publish all right so how many places do you have so we have test car brand best brand mistrust brand we have runners up or just the best we do not we talk about the best let's talk about the the best truck brown the best truck brand is ram okay and what do you think that the ram fifteen hundred has been very well accepted by customers it does some things that other trucks don't do has your suspension has by far the nicest cabin the industry it's it's it's doing very well in the marketplace it also injected someone of fear into the competition because immediately that it started to win all the awards the announcer from Chevy was we completely redoing our interior sweet Holly so hot and the new Silverado fifteen hundred it's a good truck but it didn't go far enough in what it needed to update right the interiors are often places you can save money because in years gone by people down well they look at something shiny on the outside specially in the nineties I remind his was a whiz here for this you can get inside a Subaru in the nineties you give us on the miles in the nineties new got mark want want it looked really good from the outside but you got inside it smell bad plastic and it was also the press molded and it was never finished right it was bit so slow wispy plastic coming off the dash well in in the truck market the truck market has changed dramatically it's no longer somebody looking necessarily for utilitarian vehicle they're looking for an SUV with a pet and they're willing to pay seventy thousand dollars and they take the family out to family events in the travel long holes for the family as well so kids are gonna need U. S. B. is in the back and entertainment systems of the people in the back row to me to be comfortable right yep it's really turning into sort of the S. U. V. what the S. U. V. has become as well except without with an open bed I guess in the back so ram did did really well when we move over to the S. U. V. care right the CV list did they do as well that should be was a surprise this year because Honda has dominated in the SUV category for years okay and this year kia took the the Wharton on the strength of the telluride the fresh the renter so the Sportage is doing well all right right the giving a quick break when we come back we'll pick this up on the other side of the commercial break you're.

Banging the cost screaming at me. Stop stop. We just drove into Times Square. It was it was funny to see Mike's like we action because he was petrified. We're going to get arrested by the security police, whoever they guys where it can. It was it was kind of I drove at a time square. People taking pictures of it in one in real life, by the way, do not drive Dr Jacob Javits center to time square because although it's like twelve blocks to forty minutes. It was horrible. Yeah. And you're the only non cab on the street. I was horrible. And plus I'm very like, I'm not an aggressive nasty driver. I'm I tend to like polite. I'm polite. I let people like I'm I'm might be. But I'm not, I'm polite. I'm pauline. I'll let people in. And that's a good. I've seen guys squeeze papain. I when I came from the apple in New York, I landed a JFK got picked up in in a car and driven the guy that was driving. I found this later in the trip but was NYPD homicide. Detective that was the driver that we had for the time. We were there like he was driving. So this guy's a police officer and he's driving around New York. He overtook a please call this license irons on. That's awesome. 'cause there was a gap on the right hand side through traffic. Please call was trying to get on the left hand side. He just took it like undertook, I guess, but it's a one way street over unto whichever swing around it. He they're blocking off bag struggling through traffic. Anyway, nukes those scary. Don't have a dry from Jacob Javits Senator time never use your turn signals a sign of weakness. Yes. I don't use your home. Exactly one of the one of the guys one of the guys on my team was going from way. Like like, he was in a cab somewhere somewhere going somewhere and the Yuba hit a guy on a bicycle who's living grub office is fine. It was fine way. That's New York. I mean, only only in New York could you be inside a cab or an Uber left or something and have his somebody else. Just it's it's a dangerous game crossing the street. Nieto's pretty dangerous, and it's fun but stainless for listening. I'm sorry. Keeping people a picture of what New York's like so I got to drive the gladiator for the first time ran Cam cheap. It's harder than it. Looks like Cam GPS a lot hotter than especially off Cam thing with vehicles like going up and down one side. The that's and the guys showing you how you have to stay right on the lines is often lines. You could come off the whole the whole structure. So he's you know, he's telling you laughter. Right. And all you can see his arms because you can't see your point. Yeah. She calls the road below. You just see him putting the camera in in this one doesn't didn't help you a metal.

Again, you know, I guess the biggest news here is remarkably absent from this year's ranking take awhile guess, Hillary, Hillary Clinton. Not on the list for the first time since two thousand and four guests who's the world's most powerful woman. Michelle, no. And Angela Merkel. John Vincent and Frank said. Markle and they are right. Theresa May the prime minister of the United Kingdom is number two. The World Bank Christine Lagarde number three, Mary Barra. GM number four. Melinda gates is in the top ten names, the Cheryl Sandberg of Facebook is on here. People need, you would know most of these names. The US supreme court justices are listed Oprah Winfrey. Still there believe it or not in the top one hundred saying that Lynn Albright because she can still press four hundred leagues for the first time. Perfect. She could put you on her legs wire is pop out. Oh, yeah. Navy? It is I don't know is pop out. Honorable mention your goes to Debbie Whitaker. Because she's got the finger on Chuck's barter kingdom. You scared me for a minute. Finger on what? She's got she's got the keys to the butter kingdom. Yeah. Absolutely. It's a fake set of keys. She's got the on and off switch. That's just for me. Mostly it's off. At least you didn't say ACDC, that's a whole nother. Well, that was thirty five forty years ago. It was it was he was undecided. Your friend, Frank. Your money. Make a make a road trip up there and land on his house or something. Oh, come on up Santa. Well, we got worse and worse planning the roast for next year. So don't forget about that. No. I haven't seen a couple. Yeah. Back up on eight nine hundred nineteen minutes after the hour. And let's take a phone call here this morning. Fred is in Baltimore. Fred good morning. Yes, sir. Thank you. Thank me for to the general yesterday. Quite quite quite moving away. You guys put a little boy. And hopefully, we'll be able to do more. But that was kind of impromptu. Today. I'm telling you, you gotta do a great broadcast. Thank you, sir. I just was calling. Much of that. They call you guys. Face. Barbershop? Whiteface? Got you. Delighted. Long and UT people laughing. What's the? The big topic of conversation in the barbershop these days. Well, it depends on what you want. What I mean? Going on and off the planet. Right. Hi. How how is the? I'm just giving away from politics for a second. What is the feeling the pulse of the barber shop on flacco versus Lamar Jackson. Well, I think go I mean. Appreciate what he did. Aging fast moving slow on the sale. You need to get out of the way. It's always been the case, though, he was never a speed merchant. Number was always. Throw the ball around. You keep them off of it seems to me for right after he signed that big contract. And this is true in my estimation of a lot of athletes. I mean, look at the Chris Davis of the Orioles, they sign these big contracts. It seems I don't know if it's just a coincidence or what? But it seems like their production starts declining. Because know, the thing that made the mistake was. Tried to put the Super Bowl flacco shoulder. The soccer was not that type of guy. I mean, he's just not the type of guys not the type of leader. Great quarterback. A team guy. He's not what do you call it that? Team guy. He's not a motivational leader. Right. You could walk around like, you know. He just. Well, you wouldn't put him in the same category. As a Tom Brady or an Aaron Rodgers or a drew Brees. You just wouldn't. Style back, right. Back was. Yeah. Again, montana. Johny united's. Yeah. So I would always upset with what they were trying to make some play before flacco got injured. They were trying to make some plays for Lamar Jackson. So he comes in. Now, you have two quarterbacks, and so they place flacco out there on the end in effect to be a big receiver core receiver what he doesn't even make any effort could look like a receiver because everybody in the stadium and on the field knew that guy was not getting mobile. Hello. You know, put that on the paperwork. Director. That you call clueless. One of our listeners, Al. Called her mirror. No clue Pugh when it comes to crime fighting crime. Oh, man. I tell you that she got a cute name and abolish after they. Call a cop. Malik..
