Yeah well i mean you really should bring eddie into it. He's hits the boring drop anytime you mentioned his name. But then i was noticing the other day like while he was like shot out of a cannon on msg during the game. Well it's in his head now that's the thing so just like john.

Tomorrow night each morning show with boomer assias in in gregg giannotti boomer geo today as the first ever lou gehrig day in major league baseball and it is a special special day for many people who have worked on this and had this vision and one of the guys that started. This was a man who had ale. As brian wayne gallon thein and he tried desperately to get this done before he passed away and he did now. He got the news that there's going to be lou gehrig day before he passed away. Unfortunately he's not going to be able to see the first one today but it was one of the things he needed to accomplish in his life. He had to get it done and he did. And there's a great story on espn dot com about it. Now if you remember couple of months ago when it was announced that there was going to be a lou gehrig day mike from bethel called us and we told him to call back today and here. He is on the line mike. Good morning how are you good order guys. Thanks for having me on today absolutely. Thanks for calling back now you have. Aol s correct. I do diagnosed two thousand sixteen. And so that's that's been a while now. So how are you. I mean you're still have the ability to speak right now which will be able to call us. That's a good thing. so how are you doing. I'm doing okay. I have a I could obviously talk. I could swallow but my libs I can't walk. I can't use my arbs But i have a good spirit. So i just wanted you guys to the guys for for spread. The word today added talking about lou gehrig day. It's a big day for a lot. A lot of people. We know that mike. Obviously you know. I know the frady's family pete frady's from boston college unfortunately died avail as his mom was interviewed by sweetie marnie over the weekend. Sweetie murdy over the weekend here on. Wfan tell you that your families are heroic in nature in and supporting you and giving you everything that you need to to live as normal as you possibly can. But even she said after the fact that you know pete's hopes and dreams are other families don't have to go through something like this and this is one of the reasons why this day and of course June second being lou garrick day for major league baseball and so important absolutely absolutely You know. I have like most patients. I have a fantastic support staff. My wife my kids. I am lucky to be on the committee that took care of lou. Gehrig day at at With adam wilson chuck strahl a driveway gala tied. This happened to had. It's just that amazing basic thing. So i wanna thank you guys get and I have an extra ticket. If you guys wanna come i was gonna say. Are you going to yankee stadium tonight. Definitely i will be there with about twenty seven threads and family. And so i'd say two thirds of the stadium will be a ls baddeley's patience for For it's going to be an amazing day. And mike. I want and it's going to be fantastic to watch that and i know how much this means to all of you who suffer with this disease and wind to more recognition about it more awareness. So tell me have there. Have there been some advancements recently with ls researching and trying to be able to help out those who suffer with the disease. You know a ls up. In massachusetts is the old lee Research cetera the united states and they are doing and basically things They have some things that could possibly slow the progression down but Nothing otherwise but we are close because of people like me frady's at pat quit. Who co starred. The ice bucket challenge. That could fifteen and you know we get a lot of money for that mike. Listen we appreciate your call and back in remembering to call us back today. We're going to bring it up and we're happy that you called back and i enjoy the game tonight with you and your friends and other. Ls patients and we hope the best for you and stay in touch with us. Will you please most definitely. I can give you a report back after. Yeah we'd love to hear from you guys. Thanks again so much. No thank you you know my our pleasure and i saw a thing too. Nancy freight he's talking about you know she's there red sock fans of course but they're going to be a yankee stadium tonight and that's going to be an extremely emotional emotional night for the frady's family and anybody else who has lost us remember you. Have steve gleason down with the new orleans saints. And you know. The only thing that i can tell them is nine hundred eighty nine. I became aware of cystic fibrosis. And at that time people were dying before the age of ten. And you know we lost Alex afforded the age. I believe she was eight. I believe i frank. To forge daughter to cystic fibrosis and in one thousand nine gene was found and everybody figured out was going to be gene. Therapy gene therapy and maybe someday it will be gene therapy. That will lead to a cure for this disease. But lo and behold billions of dollars raised fundraisers by families and everything else and a drug hits the market about four years ago and completely changes. Everyone's life so it takes a lot of money and takes a lot of science and then the science is what is going to extend or fix the problem and cystic fibrosis. Living breathing. proof of that. And that's what it's gonna take from these families and it's just amazing to me after all these years after all these people since lou garrick dealt with this that there's you know there is movement finally because finally that ice bucket challenge. Put it on the map. Yeah and It's it's frustrating. I'm sure for the families. But you gotta just keep raising money and just keep supporting and just keep trying to make a difference. And i know. That's what mike in bethel's doing and and certainly that's what the frady's families is doing. That's what steve gleason is doing. They're all trying to raise the awareness. Oh good thing for major league baseball to continue this and to support this and from what i have learned about a ls because you know your body shuts down but your mind remain sharp for most of the disease and that's why a lot of these guys with the remaining time. Have all these ideas and are working so hard and have the help of everybody else because you know they use what they have which is their brain. Rain is is is trying to get the word out there and trying to help and trying to help those who are going to have less in the future and it's just it's remarkable to watch and it's inspiring. It's not unlike our friend. Mikey nicholls right and what. He's trying to do in his absolutely paralysis world. I mean that's what it takes. It's unfortunate but the you know the bravery and the i don't know the just the absolute mental drive to do what they're doing and how they're doing is is even more remarkable. It's in itself than i think the amount of people that are supporting them. They're supporting them because of who they are each the morning show with boomer esiason greg's saudi boomer and geo.

We've got five parks. Do moderate gop senator. Susan collins of maine also celebrated the agreement. Everyone contributed to what is the largest imprecise structure package in history on the surface. The deal gives president biden. A major bipartisan achievement. However democrats may simply be moving some of the more contentious parts of the president's plan to separate legislation biden said. His party may still attached measures. Dropped from the infrastructure plan to a separate budget bill using the reconciliation process that would allow them to push those measures through the senate without any republican votes. The biden administration is extending the nationwide ban on evictions for another month. Worlds and johansen brown has more. Cdc director. dr. Rochelle wolinsky announced the extension on thursday but said the agency does not plan to extend it again. A biden administration officials said last month that the government has launched an all hands on deck multi-agency campaign to prevent a wave of evictions as of june seventh. Just over three million american said they faced eviction in the next two months the cdc last year prohibited landlords from evicting tenants who were unable to pay the agency claimed the authority to impose that moratorium as public safety measure during the pandemic. It said those evicted from their homes may have to move in with others or into shelters preventing social distancing. Several federal court. Rulings have found that the cdc overstepped its authority but the moratorium has remained in place. Pending legal appeals reporting for world. I'm ana joe brown vice president. Kamala harris today will make her first visit to the. Us mexico border since his own land. Security secretary alejandro.

Traffic democratic congressman henry. Quasar represents a district in south texas. He said thursday. She's got to spend time with land owners with the stakeholders with cities counties officials and i hope she sits down with our brave men and women in green and blue our border patrol agents.

Fenton all is coming over at record numbers unaccompanied children over eighty thousand unaccompanied children over eight hundred thousand migrants republicans say harris is still avoiding certain hot spots along the border like del rio and mcallen texas. The vice president is slated to visit the el paso area during this trip state senate. Republicans investigated michigan's twenty twenty presidential election for months looking for evidence of voter fraud and they have announced their findings. World's kristen flavin has that story. The gop led state senate oversight committee said in a fifty five page report that the election's outcome represents the true results. Joe biden defeated then president. Donald trump by about one hundred fifty five thousand votes or just under three percentage points in the battleground state while trump has continued to claim that the election was stolen. The panel said found no evidence of widespread or systematic fraud in michigan. But the committee's three republicans did recommend legislation to close.

Baker faces yet another challenge to his first amendment liberties. Was your listener feedback. This is the world and everything in it. It's friday june twenty-fifth twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. I'm myrna by and i'm nick eicher well it's culture friday. John stonestreet is here. He is president of the colson center and host of the break point. Podcast john. good morning. Good morning let's start off with a couple of religious liberty items. John one of them involves of course the most well known bakery owner in the world. Jack phillips of masterpiece cake shop. He is back in the news three years after he won his case at the supreme court and more on that in just a moment because the other one also involves the supreme court. It's the foster care decision. That came late last week involving catholic social services in philadelphia. This was a unanimous decision of the supreme court ruling in favor of the catholic foster care agency that would not place children in lgbt homes. Now here's how i'd like to begin here john The question is whether these kinds of matters are ever truly settled. Just like the jack phillips case never seems truly settled because even though this foster care case was nine nothing against the city of philadelphia for terminating. Its contract with catholic social services. Some of the more conservative justices complained that the case was so narrowly drawn that cities could easily get around it As to the religious liberty protections going forward here is what justice samuel alito said now quote this decision might as well be written on the dissolving paper sold in magic shops. So what do you say about that. John nine nothing supreme court decision. And maybe we're still not sure whether religious liberty is secure here. We're not sure. And i think that's does point and i think Even injustice roberts decision you know which was very very narrow and and that's what you get when you have nine. Nothing decision is you're not gonna get anything sweeping so it's not settled. Religious liberty is not this was. I don't wanna say a technicality. In the same sense that the masterpiece cake shop decision was but but basically saying it's very clear That the government can apply different standards to religious entities non religious entities and in this case the city of philadelphia did they had a policy of exceptions to their nondiscrimination act and applied to some groups. And it didn't apply to others even though it should have So this really didn't mean to make any decision in this kind of epic battle that we've gotten our culture between so-called sexual freedoms and religious liberties. There's a lot left to be decided. And of course as we have seen Even in the last turn there's a lot to be decided as we start applying these things across various aspects of culture. So you know this stuff The stuff will continue to be fought out in the core. Now again. It's good that they came to the decision. Don't get me wrong The court is not going to address something unless it's the perfect issue In any sort of sweeping way and there was enough. Bad behavior on the side of the city of philadelphia And so that's where this one came out. Well john you know. I heard a few people saying interesting. Timing for this case with catholic social services winning just months after bethany christian services another pasta care agency reversed itself and agree to place in lgbt homes in order to keep its contracts with the city so theoretically it could reverse back. Do you wonder whether it will our love to see it. Make that decision. I mean if it's true that you know the decision was made out of a an analysis of inevitability which i think was premature and i think it's obvious now that it was premature instead of a change of conviction You know then the only right thing to do is to reverse that decision I hope they do that. I have no inside information on whether they will. But i think it's reasonable For you know the supporters that believe in traditional marriage and biblical sexuality and what's best for kids in terms of moms and dads and and so on to expect that of bethany christian services Because that's the only right decision. And i think it's also a warning because we certainly do have plenty of organizations within the christian world often want to give up the fifty yard line before the thing is saddled mike lee. You know. we'll know when it's time you know to retreat into our christian bubbles because we'll have a big strong swift kick in our rear ends and that's when we'll know when it's time to leave you know the business of being a public witness in this cultural moment. I i think you can see it from here. Don't get me wrong. i don't i think it's it's happening but we should not. We should not abandon ship before we need to well. Now under jack phillips. John he got sued yet again. That's why he's in the news yet again As i say three years after winning at the supreme court he was sued for refusing to bake a gender transition cake for an activist lawyer who wanted to celebrate his transition From a man to identifying as a woman now does this not show the very high cost of fighting city hall. And and how do you steal yourself for a battle of this sort. I think jack phillips resilience has been remarkable. I think that the his treatment at the hands of the state of colorado has been despicable They started this In terms of how. They ju just even accepting this complaint which was clearly a targeted thing on behalf of this lawyer. Scardino who apparently is obsessed with jack and such an unhealthy way is actually publicly said that He will not quit until jack changes his mind or go goes out of business The this sort of treatment is despicable. it is something that wouldn't be tolerated. This is the sort of behavior That civil rights legislation was actually built to deal with so that you couldn't unjustly target somebody who believed or live there looked differently than you I feel from my friend. He's a good man. He has tried really hard to be faithful and He is living out that observation. From t s eliot and that for us there's only the trying the rest is none of our business he's living out the Wisdom of Needs in that you don't have to show up at every protest. But just don't say what's not true and He's doing that and he's paying the price court. He's doing it very often in a time and place where his you know the the the broader church in denver and in colorado is not willing to stand with them I it's unreal. I. it's it's. It's just stunning It's hard to calculate how long this has been now hard. It's been on his soul. Well john i know you're a big football fan. So i wanna get your take on the first ever openly. Gay football player. Carl nasa he plays for the las vegas raiders and he announced his sexual orientation on social media and immediately his. Nfl jersey has become the top selling jersey so that gets near universal praise while another nfl player retired whining back by the name of warwick done quietly yet another single mom become a first-time homebuyer. This was home number. One hundred ninety. I found that just an interesting contrast. So what does that say about what our culture finds heroic or were they appraise rules civilizations. This is something that has been written on for years. Petroleum sarokin For example has written on this And others and you know culture. His categories were the difference between sense eight cultures cultures that live for the senses and immediate gratification and ideas cultures cultures that live for higher goals or ideals. I mean just think about the contrast in this story that you have you know repeated between those two things. We culture that praises the gratification of the senses versus the culture that praises and treats his heroes. Those who point to something bigger and higher than ourselves You know and sarokin study for. Example is the founder of the harvard sociology department. If i remember correctly Say cultures collapsed aviation cultures. Grew whether even if those ideals building around were bad like for example. The islamic caliphate. It's just the difference between living for the moment living for the future and it's not just individuals. It's what we choose to celebrate. What would choose to say is good who as you put it who we think are heroes and in his experience. Ita ship cultures grow since they cultures collapse. And there's no. There's no exception. That's you can just kind of see that as a universal roof or civilizations and You know look. I don't think anybody looks at our particular cultural moment. Goes we're doing well. I mean it's it's pretty clear like things aren't and what are we going to blame it on blind then on a president. We're going to blame it on. You know the stock market. I mean none of that makes sense. It's not big enough to explain. The level of chaos. What is is the the values and the world view. That's driving our cultural moment.

Too busy to flush dot com. We'll something quite unexpected occurred during a recent meeting of g seven leaders in cornwall. The queen of england took up arms. Stay with me on this. When she was presented a large cake to commemorate her ninety fifth birthday. She ignored the cutting knife on the table and instead reached for a ceremonial sword as she tried cutting into the cake with a large curved blade someone with the best of intentions noted. There was a perfectly good knife on the table to which the queen responded unusual definitely more unusual and everyone seemed to enjoy a good laugh. Even if it was a bit awkward seeing the monarch handling that oversized blade but the initial cut which frankly didn't do much. She returned the sword in favor of the sharper and much easier to handle cake knock. It's the world and everything dan. Today is friday. June twenty fifth. Thank you for turning to world radio to help. Start your debt. Good morning. i'm nick and marina brown coming next on the world and everything in it family movie night. Hollywood loves true stories. Maybe because truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and just as entertaining reviewer sharon dear burgers says that's certainly true of an upbeat family movie recently released on net flicks. Blue miracle is quite the fishtail based on a true story whether or not rods and reels. Rock your world. You and the whole family will enjoy this catch. The phil follows omar vanegas. Who with his wife. Becca runs an orphanage for boys and beautiful kabul son lucas mexico but the orphanage near kossuth is not so beautiful. It's in need of repairs especially after a hurricane sweeps through. It's also in debt to the bank for a lot of money. I really asked this but okay. What do you mean what's going wrong. Thank for us the bank which is a little more time. Pay what we owe if you could put in a good word of the bank. Almost directly hundred and seventeen thousand dollars. Oh boy these desperate times. Set the scene for unusual measures every year kabo hosts busy bees black and blue. That's blue marlin fishing. The biggest in the world and it awards huge cash prizes but this year because of the hurricane many international competitors have failed so the tournament opens the competition to local fishermen through odd circumstances. The orphanage and papa omar as he's affectionately known by his boys entered the competition. None of the orphan boys has ever fished before the tournament. Announcers comment on the unusual last-minute entry as the rest of the boys cheer back home at the orphanage. Four ladies and gentlemen welcome to day one business black and blue fishing tournament. And what is shaping up to. That's right larry. Part of what makes this year so special. He's the host of newcomers from around the area. We've got first timers team. Lark by non legendary died champion cup away malloy. It's going to be an exciting three days if you think you've heard this plot before but set on a football field or basketball court instead of an ocean you're right but the underdogs in this story are still worth watching. They tug on your heart like well like marlin on a fishing line. I only wish the film had given us more backstory on the orphans in four of their thoughts like here where book smart wicky shares a bit of his heart with omar. I can't go back to the streets bubble. I mean he does get going hollywood. I mean they're tough. They can handle it. But it's just different director. Julio can tana cleverly juxtaposes the boy's plight and poverty against stunning ocean views brimming with expensive pristine yachts but Omar well acted by jimmy. Gonzalez carries the film. He shows genuine compassion for the street. Kids maybe because he used to be one and the way he embraces all the boys with their quirks and fears keeps you hoping for a happy outcome each subplot. Although embellished grabs viewers to those are first place trophies. The bisbee black and blue cross washed up. Captain wade played by dennis quaid. Who takes the boys aboard his dirty decrepit fishing boat those trophies tell people that i am the best at whatever i choose to do a winner. He's abandoned his wife and son for the last five years. He mistakenly believes that. Pike catching prize winning fish. His family will esteem him as a great man. One of the boys call him out a fishing trophy. We all lost our dads for stupid reasons. Bullets drugs prison right now. I'm feeling kind of lucky. Compared to your son. Gradually the captain starts thinking less about winning prizes. And more about the kids after he brags about the scar and his lake from fighting a marlin. He quiets when the boys laugh and start comparing their own scars from abusive adults in their lives. Other things the boys say also drive the captain to silence. We have names what you said. We were nameless orphans. We have names. Yeah we're not orphans. Way between families at the moment papa. Omar is determined to help all the boys including a rebellious hurting teenager. He convinces to join the fishing team and he tries to come up with a way to encourage tweety the youngest who really misses his mother. Almer handsome a nail and tells him to write down his problems and they'll them to a door like he does giving them to. God hears many exxon narrowed credit. God asking for help them. Pray hard impression pants. It'll start to feel like a train. Hits refreshing to hear someone in a movie. Who isn't the bad guy about god. And the nail becomes symbolic throughout the film including when omar finally hurls it into the sea. Omar faces some hard choices about the orphanage. One of those decisions is as potentially life. Changing as winning the prize money would be blue. Miracle is rated. Pg for intense action and occasional crude slang so it might not be appropriate for the youngest but those are minor issues for an otherwise fantastic family. Film be sure to sit tight for the credits to see footage of the real characters. And what casa ochre looks like today. I'm sharon your burger. Today is friday. June twenty fifth. Good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. And i'm nick eicher. Well it's time for this month's listener feedback but i a correction a- commentary. This month had jesus walking in palestine. What we should have said was that he was walking the streets in hills of judea and samaria. Okay on now to your calls and emails and we'll start with the one that traveled the farthest listener christie cola. Sent us this voice memo. She recorded on her smartphone from france. She said she's lived in europe for thirteen years and has listened to the program for a few years. Now and one thing. I enjoy the most about your podcast is the fact that you cover the world news so well. When i first heard the name was the world and everything it. I kind of rolled my eyes because in america i have found that so many times when they say okay. Now we're going to give news about the world world news. It's almost all still about america. And now that i've lived overseas for so long i've realized the world is a much bigger place than the us. And so i love the fact that you cover international story so well i do have one question and that is what time of day do you record the different parts of the podcast. Just curious about the daily schedule but you all do a wonderful job. Thanks so much well. It's a good question and instead of just saying it depends because it kind of does i can say one thing about the predictability of the daily schedule and it's this by the way it is pretty biblical. The first is last. And what i mean by that is that can't covington and his team work. Really hard to provide the most up to date news for you so the first thing in is typically the last thing out.

This is my father's world. I hear at now and i love it. I hope you enjoy today's program. Good morning today on culture. Friday worldview matters. We'll talk about that as it relates to.

I'm nick i and i'm ernie brown. Good morning up next. Kent covington with today's news. U. s. forces are struggling to speed up evacuations from kabul as thousands of civilians try to make their way into the airport. But major general. Hank taylor told reporters on thursday in the past twenty four hours thirteen c. seventeen arrived with additional troops and equipment. Also twelve c. Seventeen departed these. Flights contain more than two thousand passengers. He said they're ready to begin. Flying larger numbers out each day. But the evacuations are running into a range of issues from armed taliban checkpoints to paperwork problems and despite the taliban's charm offensive in the media reports continue of militants going door to door in kabul hunting for afghans who worked with western forces and defense secretary. Lloyd austin conceded that unless they can get to the airport. They're on their own. We don't have the capability to go out and collect a large numbers of people meantime. Us allies continued to lament the handling of pullout the european union's high representative for foreign affairs. Just burrell said thursday may be really blunt blanquita. This is a catastrophe desperately people for the western batteries and credibility for the developing of international relations. Meantime in haiti tensions have been growing over the slow pace of aid reaching victims of powerful weekend earthquake. Relief supplies are arriving in haiti pentagon. Spokesman john kirby said. Us forces are delivering aid. They've transported search and rescue responders and Fifty five hundred pounds of medical supplies but getting those supplies to the people in need is another matter. Torrential rains from tropical storm grace caused mudslides and washed out roads in some areas. And then there's the problem of gang violence united nations spokesman to jerick or humanitarian colleagues. Telling us that access to the southern peninsula where the quake hit is challenging because gangs are controlling movements authorities negotiating access. A major hospital in the capital of a prince was closed thursday for a two day shutdown in protest that after gangs kidnapped two doctors including one of the country's few orthopedic surgeons saturday's seven point two magnitude quake killed more than two thousand people and left about thirty thousand families homeless. A study published in the new england journal of medicine on wednesday showed disappointing results for a particular kind of covert nineteen treatment. World's sarah weinsberg has more researchers gave two hundred fifty emergency room corona virus patients infusions of blood plasma from cova nineteen survivors while another two hundred fifty patients got dummy infusions and the outcomes between the two groups were very similar. Nearly a third of both groups became sick and returned to the hospital. Five patients died in the plasma group while only one died and the other group. The lead researcher dr clifton. Calloway said the results of the convalescent plasma also known as survivors plasma were disappointing. He said quote. We were hoping that the use of covert nineteen convalescent. Plasma would achieve at least ten percent reduction in disease progression in this group but instead the reduction we observed was less than two percent reporting for world i'm sarah schwartzberg a man who claimed to have a bomb and a pickup truck near the capital surrendered to law enforcement after an hours. Long standoff on thursday. Us capitol police chief. Tom major ultimately We were able to take him in custody without incident but there were there. Were certain things that we that were. We saw his truck up. For instance. Propane gas container. The threat to triggered a massive police response and the evacuations of government buildings and businesses in the area law enforcement officials identified the suspect as forty nine year. Old floyd ray roseberry of north carolina. They're still trying to determine what motivated him to drive onto the sidewalk outside if the library of congress and make bomb threats but relatives of the suspect said he was distraught over deaths in his family and recent events in his life. A federal appeals court in new orleans. This week upheld a texas law. Banning dismemberment abortions. World's kirsten flavin has that story. The 2017 law seeks to prohibit the use of forceps to dismember unborn babies. While they're still alive inside the womb. Abortion rights advocates argued. That babies cannot feel pain during the station period affected by the law. They also argued in court that one alternative provided in the law using suction to remove fetus. Also results in dismemberment a three judge panel of the fifth. Us circuit court of appeals blocked enforcement of the law last year but texas was granted a rehearing by the full court and a majority of the fourteen appellate judges who heard arguments in january sided with taxes on wednesday kimberlin schwartz with texas. Right to life celebrated the decision. She said anyone can see the cruelty of dismemberment abortions she added. We're grateful the judges recognized this horror reporting for world. I'm kristen flavin am i'm ken. Covington straight ahead worldview consequences in afghanistan loss or affinity for abbreviations. This is the world and everything in it. It's friday august twentieth. Twenty twenty one glenn to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm nick brown a rain of terra. That's how those on the ground described the situation in afghanistan. Things have gone from bad to worse from the time. The taliban captured kabul the capital effectively. Taking control of the government right and since that time those the ground report. The taliban are hunting unmarried women tracking down shiite has czars and jailing and torturing christians adding to that those heartbreaking images of afghans climbing onto us military planes risking their lives in some cases horrifyingly losing their lives just to try to get out of that country now if that's not a picture of desperation than nothing will convey that idea adequately well. It's culture friday. And i wanna welcome. John stonestreet the president of the colson center and host of the point. Podcast morning john. Good morning john where we're really proud of the work of our colleague mindy bells. She's traveled extensively and she's been our reporter on the ground. She continues to bring clarity and his helping us understand. What's happening in afghanistan. And i know you feel the same about her work making her your go to this week on your podcast john. What struck me as. I'm sure it did. You was mendis reporting on national. Id cards in afghanistan. Where religious belief is stated. I mean christians there openly stated on those cards that they are christian and now there's fear they will pay a high priced with the taliban suddenly in charge of the country. What a spectacular political failure and to be fair along bipartisan. Time in the making but john. Isn't it fundamentally consequences of the failure to understand worldview motivations partially certainly. It's just the failure on every single level but the world v. side i think is really important because i think you know for example there's from state department officials. I hope that you know the kind words of the taliban that you know will be a kindlier gentler. Taliban the problem is of course that the taliban are operating off of a game plan that goes back thousands of years not ones that goes back you know. Even ten years or twenty years it goes back you remember some of the radical islamist talking about what they're doing as revenge for the fall of spain. I mean that takes you back to the very beginning of this whole conflict between christendom and islam Not to mention all the other chapters of this story. We just don't have that sort of cultural memory. We certainly don't have that sort of framework to understand a religiously motivated point of reference. In which i it's about history. It's not just about what's happening now. it's not about. Economics is not about geopolitics. It's about a complete understanding of the story of the world. And i tell you. I was really struck as you were myrna with the story of these pastures. Mindy mindy shared on our podcast. The the growth of the church in afghanistan made it one of the fastest growing churches in the world Which of course it doesn't mean it's big it means it's probably small just doubling and doubling and doubling but the decision by these christians to put christian on their national. Id cards was one of courage. And it was one of wanting to identify a family legacy. I often think about faith as a dad. Being part of my family legacy to my kids. And i think about it being the thing that will give them hope and give them a grounding in truth and we'll give them courage and maybe even joy the these individuals had to know that the risk here was that making christianity a part of their family legacy would mean that faith ensures suffering and persecution and as mindy shared. That's already happened. The government database now is in the hands of the taliban who are using it to track down people. Let them know. We know what you're doing as a christian and now we're just waiting for these awful stories that are trickling out to be confirmed as i think it's another example where christians here will learn from their brothers and sisters and other parts of the world. That's persecution for sure on your podcast. This week john you talked about the eerie -ness of of what's happening now compared to what happened twenty years ago on nine eleven. I i think i feel the same way. But what do you mean you know by uranus you know what about The parallels are eerie to you. Well honestly the most eerie thing having to do with any of this is that president biden decided to make nine eleven his new deadline for withdrawal. I mean i i. It's hard to understand what sort of optics he was going for. What sort of party. He thought he was going to have An claiming responsibility For a great victory which has turned into probably the defining the bucko of his presidency This will go on his record forever. That's the irina s- that i talked about and what what's going through your mind. How much do you have to miss the actual truth of the story on the ground and not understand the motivations of this group which we've now had twenty years to get acquainted with To to try to make that you're dead mind if one who can think beyond the last twenty years realize that the date nine eleven at least for the islamic world has significance beyond what happened in two thousand and one For us the only part of that story is two thousand and one but that had something to do with this long history this long struggle of what they see is an inevitable progress of islam to take over the world. so that's the big part of it. I think also i. i just don't know how many times america can fall asleep and in light of this world view. And i i get it. I mean the last several years there was a status quo Two thousand five hundred troops were enough to work with. The afghan government provide the air support that they needed in order to Hold at least the taliban to some degree at bay but you can kind of see is like oh yeah the taliban he kinda here it across media you can certainly hear across dinnertime conversations. It's oh yeah the taliban. I forgot about those guys. They're bad dudes right and all of a sudden. Yeah and this is what happens in a world that suffers from chronological snobbery when a worldview drives us to think about what's newer and what's bigger and what's better and we have this ridiculous notion of progress. I mean the headlines. Were just too easy for example. For the babylon when they were talking about all the the military secrets that were uncovered by the taliban and the reading these books on woke kness that were left. And it's a joke. I get it but but but there's something there where we're not a series is one blogger. Put it. we're not a serious people anymore. We're having conversations about ridiculous things and we're missing this consistent constant challenge. That's in front of us now for yet. Another chapter john. We are speaking of very difficult. Desperate situations obviously a. We should not forget. Today about haiti. another terrible earthquake claiming more than one thousand lives followed by dangerous Tropical weather coming on top of a political assassination. The killing of the president This is overwhelming to think about too but here again do we have worldview issues to consider when we talk about what makes the suffering in haiti so much worse. Well absolutely You know the the easy but inadequate to look the tree of haiti. Is you know good. Heavens hal unlucky can one nation be But but the thing is is. There's a difference between a nation. We're all of these things. Come with devastating consequences and a nation that has the infrastructure. The disaster relief systems in place to be able to navigate. These where what is a very calamitous situation doesn't become just one that is just devastating but almost everything is devastating for haiti. And that's because there's already a level of devastation of job. Insecurity gang violence. You know you name one after another in one of the interesting analysis comes from my friend. Darrow miller in his book which is now years old called disciples the nation's in which he looks at the difference between haiti and the dominican republic If the story of the world is one of natural resources and it doesn't make any sense whatsoever that there would be such a dramatic difference between haiti and the dominican republic. But you can see it from space. You can see it from google earth. You can see from an airplane. It's worldview it's not just what resources are available because this is the same island. It's what you do with those resources and How you understand the value of people what you think will bring you. Success and a nation captivated At so many levels by corruption By voodoo in just all the worldview challenges that that brings is one in which were these sorts of disasters are made that much worse.

So sure surefire way to reduce stress. Good advice it's the world and everything in it Today is friday august twentieth. Thank you for turning to world radio to help start your day. good morning. I'm nick eicher and myrna brown coming next on the world and everything in it more. Good news for doglovers. Here's a reviewer. Colin marino club turner in the new series airing on disney plus as a spin off of the nineteen eighty. Nine film starring. Tom hanks hangs played scott. Turner a small town policeman. Who solves a big case with the help of a slobbery. French mastic in this new series got turned son. Also named scott is a us marshal based in san francisco. Played josh peck know when i was little. My dad was like Local hero he saw his case before. I was born. So yeah of course. Yeah it'd be dislike him but he never did anything like that again you know. He was just like this small town. And i wanted to chase bad guys. That's what the marshals do so. I joined the apple doesn't fall far from the tree just like his dad. Scott lakes everything neat and tidy but also just like his dad. His life is thrown into chaos. When he's forced to adopt an unruly dog named to the elder turner dies before the start of the series and he leaves this latest french master to his son. Do not say the pound. Needless to say he's not thrilled with the gift. What happens to dogs at the pound right. Yes some many get adopted right to wonderful loving families. Shouldn't hooch be with a wonderful loving family. Who i no love. Slobber young scott is on the trail of bank robbers kidnappers thieves who just keeps tripping him up sometimes literally but no one in his life will let them get rid of the dog so we started looking for ways to work with him. Hi i'm erica. Manure up scott turner. This which. I run the canine explosive detection training for the marshall cigarettes. I know this is an unusual situation. But if there's anything you can do. Please please amount desperate queue. The romance just like his dad who married the local vet. It looks as if scott's going to find love when he finds someone to help them with hooch. Eric is obviously smitten from the start but scott seems oblivious. Scott comes across a little naive little insecure and a little weaker. But don't worry who will help them find the right path. Of course each episode features a bad guy of the week a mystery lurks in the background was scott's father working on a secret investigation when he died with the big question is does this new series live up to the nineteen eighty-nine movie. I'm going to go out on a limb here and warn you. the original probably isn't as good as you remember being even so this new series doesn't have anyone who can rival tom. Hanks now if we're going to get along we're going to have to come to a certain understanding. Remember this scene when he tells the house rules. All right. these are the simple rules. No barking growling. You will not let anything in this house. This is not your room. No slobbering no chewing. You will wear a fleet collar. This is not your room no begging for food not giving of crutches and you will not drink from my toilet. This guy is not your. The new series contain some broad slapstick moments. But it doesn't have a seen anywhere near that funny on the other hand. The new turned who might work for family. tv night. there's plenty of gunfire. It is a police show after all so it might not be good for small children but despite all the whizzing bullets no one dies in the first four episodes and unlike the original movie the love story has remained chaste so far somebody out there going to seconds. It's going to be dangerous. The need to be busy to whole way. Because i know you have my back you back to your might forever the show take some time to warm up but by the third episode is starts to come into its own rather than just follow. The original movie set up. It also helped. When i stopped comparing josh peck tom hanks. But let's be honest. Even though many viewers will enjoy the nostalgia. This buddy cop series featuring man's best friend i can't imagine turner and who do you ever running with the big dogs. I'm colin gabrielle. It's friday august twentieth. Good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm nick and myrna brown time now for word play or as we like to call it around here w. p. Here's george grant in shakespeare's hamlet. Polonius famously observes brevity is the soul of wit. He might have just as easily asserted that brevity is likewise the soul of language. It seems that are common. Parlance is impulsivity incessantly inclined to shorten and simplify us. Our fondness for abbreviations abbreviations r. Abridged condensed compressed or abstracted versions of the words or phrases. We use every day and they can take a myriad of forms contractions for instance abbreviations in which we omit letters from the middle of a word or a pair of words. He's she's and it's can't don't and won't i've we've and they've are all common contractions as are the abbreviated titles for mr mrs. Dr and saint acronyms are taken from the first letters of a group of words where they are pronounced together to form a new abbreviated word. For example nasa is the abbreviation for the national aeronautics and space administration. Nato is the abbreviation for the north atlantic treaty organization. And apac is the abbreviation for the organization of petroleum. Exporting countries there is radar for radio detection and ranging there is laser for light implication by stimulated emission of radiation and there is scuba for self contained underwater. Breathing apparatus another abbreviated construction similar to acronym is an initial ism also formed from the first letters of a group of words but in this case each letter is pronounced individually. There is a m for anti meridian and p. him for post meridian or ps for post script and rsvp. For ripon days he would play. There is fbi for the federal bureau of investigation cd for compact desk c. e. o. For chief executive officer. Faq for frequently asked questions nca for the national collegiate athletic association and u. f. o. for unidentified flying object initial 'isms are common in computing and social media slang with usb cpu j. pg atm a. o. l. and l. o. l. of course. The simplest form of abbreviation is shortening. Cutting off the end of a word so app instead of application or vet instead of either veterinarian or veteran limo instead of limousine at instead of advertisement and flew instead of influenza we have rehab instead of rehabilitation admin instead of administration ammo instead of ammunition and rum instead of leeann. Bedlam is the abbreviated name for. London's bethlehem hospital for the mentally ill. In pakistan is an abbreviation taken from the names of the northern provinces of the british colonial rise pun job of ganja kashmir sindh and lucas. Stan alaska is also an abbreviation of own alaska a name derived from the loot word meaning the shores where the c. breaks. It's back everywhere. We look abbreviations abound. Of course the irony is is that there is no abbreviation for that. Very long word abbreviation. I'm george grant. Well it's time now to thank our team in order of appearance on the program. This week starting with mary record can't covington katie goldman kristen flabby. Anna hansen brown. Sarah weinsberg kim henderson. Steve west o'neill's ao he kerry joel bells cal.

This is the world and everything in it. it's friday july second twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. I'm paul butler and i'm nick. Eicher will by not acting the. Us supreme court sent quite a message this week in declining to hear a case out of virginia dealing with gender in the use of restrooms and specifically how public high schools are supposed to work it all out. Now it's an old case began back in two thousand fourteen and a case by the way that the supreme court back in two thousand seventeen agreed to hear and then agreed not to lots of background detail. Here we start in a high school in gloucester county. Virginia student's name is gavin grimm reporting for world. Carolina lameta writes the principal initially allowed grim to use the boys restroom but school policy required students to use facilities. According to their biological sex the school gave grim the option of a single stall restroom and grim sued for sex discrimination in two thousand fifteen by twenty sixteen. The obama administration weighed in by issuing legal guidance through the department of education that it was the position of the government that federal law on sex discrimination applies to gender identity by the time that grams lawsuit got into the appellate court it relied on that obama guidance the fourth circuit court of appeals ruled that the school must allow female students who claim a male gender identity to use boys restrooms and by implication vice versa. Right as we said the supreme court in two thousand seventeen had agreed to review that case but then the trump administration then in office scrap the education department guidance so the high court sent the case back down to reconsider in light of that meantime. The supreme court took a totally different transgender case. Unemployment case and in the end wound up effectively. Adopting the obama position that federal sex discrimination law should apply to gender identity cases in the workplace so the fourth circuit appeals court applied that standard to the grim case and again ruled in favor of the transgender students. Now that brings us to the present day. The appeals court case was appealed again to the supreme court. The supreme court declined to accept the case and that means at least for now that the transgender bathroom decision is binding precedent in five states maryland. Virginia west virginia north carolina and south carolina. And unless another federal appeals court rules differently. The supreme court currently has no case that it can use to clarify whether it's transgender employment case known as the boast stock case applies in the school bathroom context. Well it's culture. friday. John stonestreet is here. He's president of the colson center and host of the break point. Podcast john. good morning. Good morning gentlemen. And congratulations on pronouncing gloucester correctly. You know it's just practice practice practice until you get. Say that as a virginia native so well i. I did my time in virginia but only two years but Yeah so another. Milestone of sorts here and again from virginia But we have the trump supreme court basically handing a victory to the lgbt movement. Well i i mean i think that's accurate and i think what we have this kind of whole conversation about. Lgbtq rights progresses along legal lines is just little victory little victory little victory one step forward two steps back two steps forward one step back because what we have is the supreme court that is just wary a super reticent from making any sort of sweeping declarations that in some sense pretends to settle the culture war. And of course that reflects something. I think that people should understand which is the. The courts are more a reflection of the culture than a leader of the culture. Not that they don't matter not that they're not part of culture But that stuff tends to be downstream not upstream. And so we're going to be jerked back and forth here. We're going to be going back and forth based on. Who's in the white house. So we're going to get you know the dear colleague letter from president obama and we're going to get a completely different take From president trump and his administration and then president biden is going to jump in and attempt to apply the supreme court decision both stock in ways that court itself specifically said it shouldn't be applied and he's going to try to do that and then some courts are going to allow it and then the supreme court the highest court in the land is going to try to sit it out so i guess there's a lot of different ways to talk about this but it also should help us learn the lesson we needed to learn from the pro-life response to roe v wade. Which is we. Don't wait for the court to do the work that needs to be done in the larger culture. Parents shouldn't wait for the court to decide what schools should teach their kids. They should teach their kids. Churches should not wait For a corridor illegal decision or the next election Whiplash to say whether we should speak out on this or you know be at threat for religious liberty. It's so it's so clear that christians need to come down to what is true in what is good. figure it out now otherwise. We're just going to be going back. And forth and a form of kind of christian worldview whiplash that. We seem to be suffering from these days. Yeah and you're seeing a lot of activity at the school board level too. I mean in some of that is driven by these very questions of of transgender. And how we're going to accommodate what we're going to do with regard to bathrooms and so on and so forth pronouns. Right is is was the subject of one of those meetings. Well look let need to give a shout out to virginia. Because i have been critical of it over the last couple years You know i think that. There's a few states kind of in a race For the abyss in virginia has jumped out in many ways in the lead. And yet what we saw with. The case of. Tanner cross is a church and a larger community of parents and a larger community of fellow teachers stepping up going on even agree with him. But this is not the kind of department of education. We want Lording over us We want a place of religious freedom. I was highly encouraged by that. But i'll tell you what going to a school board meeting. Taking the mike maybe a little out of hand But but and a pastor just coming out going we are rallying around this guy because he's one of us good heavens. When's the last time we saw that. For a christian who found themselves in the cultural crosshairs so high five to that community kind of restored my hope and where this might go john interesting pride month decision in california to extend its government travel ban to five more states florida. Arkansas montana north dakota and west. Virginia so that brings the total to seventeen states. Where the state of california won't allow state resources for official travel. Texas was already on the list and then adding florida that means the second and third most populated states are now off limits and of course the reason is that the california government disagrees with those states on. lgbt rights. now. I heard one commentator called this a cold war among the states. It's a little frightening stated that way but is that an accurate read or do you just think of it as meaningless posturing Is it okay to say. Yes i guess. I guess it's a cold war in a sense but you know my my daughter's sometimes have cold war a cold war against each other where they don't talk to each other and it's a real cold war but it's not a great consequence to the larger world and i kinda wonder if that's the case here. You know the the little bureaucrats in states like to you know champion pat themselves on the back. What we have seen of course is particularly in these progressive states governors moral posturing and then not following through on their own promises or their own policies. I can't imagine that they're going to be able to be consistent with their own policy for everyone else and this is going to be the issue. Look when the governor of california states and equal travel ban on official business to china the then talk to me about moral high ground. of course. I wonder whether you know. At what point does this cross a line. We you know you can kind of laugh about it. And he's not gonna go to florida but at what point does this become a serious issue or does it. Well if you go back to samuel huntington's book the clash of civilizations and this may be an extreme application but huntington predicted that after the cold war that the conflicts globally would not advance along nation states but between civilizational riffs and those civilizational risks weren't about national identity. They were about worldview. Look at some point. A country cannot advance without shared definitions of right and wrong. It's one thing to disagree on the best way to get to a common goal. It's another thing to disagree. Diametrically on what the goals should be and that becomes the sorts of things that creates risks. There are rules to countries. There are rules to civilizations there are rules to groups of people being able to survive together going forward and you can't break those rules forever Without consequence or as dallas. Willard put it. You can't step off the roof and then choose not the hit the ground. This is actually baked into the way the world works. And so i think. Nick your question is the right one eventually. This sort of kind of I can't talk to you. Because i disagree with you and drawing that sort of line on such an odd issue when there are so many other issues at stake you know it's unsustainable going forward. It's you know there comes a point where you you can't reason you can't be rational alone. There has to be another party to the conversation. At that point. Things begin to breakdown. johnstone street. The president of the colson center and host of the break point podcast. john. Thanks. thank you both.

Lawyers is owner of the world's largest collection of smurfs pompous murph. Smurfit gargle elder all. They're filling up multiple rooms of her home in central wisconsin. And she's been at this for four decades and she's just forty seven years old so most of her life back in two thousand fourteen guinness recognized as the world's biggest collection it had at the time. Six thousand pieces but that wasn't enough. She's broken even that record expanding it to more than eleven thousand pieces so you must wonder what is the common question. Obviously why The answer is quite simple to. I have fun doing it. There's no reason other than i have fun doing it. It's the world and everything. Today is friday july second. Thank you for turning to world radio to help start your day. Good morning. i'm nick eicher. And i'm paul butler coming up next on the world and everything in it does show marble fans have been waiting for and the new disney plus streaming series. Tom hit allston reprises his role. As the fan. Favorite villain loki reviewer. Call and guerrino says the as guardian. God of mischief is as entertaining as ever. That is until these forced about two woke ideology. I am loki. Have is god. And i am with glorious glorious purposes always just out of reach for lucky in the avengers movies but this look. You didn't know yet. He's not the same calming rogue who completed his redemption ark in the films this series features an alternate version of loki. Who escapes from his timeline. Thanks to the time. Hopping events have vendors in game. He's escape causes him to run afoul of the ta. That is the time. Variance authority appears to be a standard sequence violation ranches growing stable right slope variant. Identify your on behalf of the time variance authority. I hereby a rescue for crimes against the sacred timeline in the marvel universe when someone goes back in time and change the past. It doesn't change the president in the future instead. It creates another version of the universe. The original past present and future still exist but a second present and future created by the change off from the original storyline. The tv's job is to prune those branches ensuring that variance don't create a multi versus chaos now variant l. one one thirty aka loki. Lafi soon is charged with sequence violation. Seven twenty eighty nine. Are you guilty or not guilty or guilty of being the god of mischief. Yes guilty of finding all this incredibly tedious. Yes guilty of a crime against the sacred line. Absolutely not have their own person. Oh but rather than pruning loki for stepping off the sacred time. Line agent moebius played by owen wilson decides to recruit him. I specialize in the pursuit of dangerous variants. He needs help to track down and even more dangerous variant who wants to dismantle the tv and unravel the universe a major moebius by the way. Are you taking me somewhere to kill me. No that's just were. I'm taking someplace to talk. But i don't like to talk to do like to lie which you just did as we both know you loved dark. And there's lots of talk in the first two episodes of this series. It turns out that time travel and multi verses demand lots of exposition but honestly the talk might be the best part of the series. I never stepped on the bag. That's such a boring form of betrayal. Okay i've studied almost every moment of your entire life. You've literally stabbed people back like fifty times. I never do it again because it got old. Okay lookin' moebius play the odd couple to perfection and even though the plot takes a while to get going. I hardly noticed. Because i was too busy. Enjoying owen wilson. Playing the straight man. The two men don't trust each other but in the clever banter we see them learning to become friends. There chat sometimes take a philosophical turn which is not uncommon for time travel stories. Where do we all come from. Does life have any meaning. Are we all just playing apart or do we have some measure of freedom but the show raises these questions with a playful style. It's less common in this genre. Perhaps most interestingly we see character struggle to live in light of philosophies they espoused but don't necessarily understand mobile says he believes in the absolute planet sacred time line but he also wants to believe loki can reform that. I know you have a soft spot for broken things. I don't think so. Yes you do but no. Kate isn't evil lying. Scourge that is the part he plays on the sacred time line. Maybe wants to mix it up. Sometimes you get tired of playing the same parts at possible can change not less the timekeepers to create and then it shelby. So it's interesting to have a superhero show raise these philosophical questions. We probably shouldn't expect a dancer them satisfactorily. We also shouldn't expect loki. Mobias to save the sacred time line after all. This series is just a setup for doctor strange in the verse madness which comes out next year. Existence is chaos. Nothing makes any sense. We try to make some sense of it. And i'm just lucky that the chaos i am merged into gave me all this i own laureus. The tv is my life. And it's real. Because i believe it's real lucky is rated tv fourteen for superhero violence and occasional course language but after the first two. I admit i was hooked witty. Stylish unique it was my favorite television show of the year. But then the third episode came out. And i wish could call in the tv. A to prune it from the sacred time line has stepped into fix your mistake. Tom back on its predetermined. Hit allston is supposed to be the show's star but if wilson's agent moebius disappears from the screen for too long. The story loses its shine. Moebius is completely absent from the third episode and everything that made the show. Excellent unique just vanished even worse disney decided to pander to progressive gender ideology in the first episode we glimpsed local tv dossier which lists the sec says fluid that could be reasonable considering he's a shape shifter but the third episode includes a brief forced line about his having romances with both men and women. It's a shame for such a smart show to be so clumsy and seeking. The twitter mobs approval. It's almost ironic. For marvel's time travel series to succumb to chronological snobbery by confirming the trendy ideologies of our own cultural moment thankfully wilson returns for episode for but with only two more episodes to go.

It was very very difficult to get that first program out the door and then the next week we did another one and he got a little bit better and the next week a little bit here from some familiar voices and get their reflections on their early work on the program. The work is professional but the clothes are not so much. And you'll hear how the program got both its name and its theme music. It's monday august night.

The senate voted last night to cut off debate on the bill on this. Vote the as our sixty eight. The nays are twenty-nine that vote was the final hurdle to clear before the full senate votes on the bipartisan package. It does appear likely that the bill will pass. But that's not a sure thing. Some republican senators still oppose the bill largely because it will add to an already spiraling deficit. Tennessee senator marsha blackburn. This is something too expensive to afford. Supporters argue that the bill will pay for itself over time because of long term benefits of the package. A final vote is expected most likely sometime early in the day tomorrow. In greece pillars of smoke and ash turned the sky origin blocked out the sun above the country's second largest island on sunday that as a wildfire devoured pristine forests and threatened villages.

I'm counting ten and straight ahead. World radios origin story loss searching scripture to find the perfect program name this is the world and everything in it. It's monday the ninth of august. Twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along. Today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm paul butlin. Mary anchored. I step humble beginnings ten years ago this wednesday. Our first program aired on the salem radio network. We've heard from some of you listened to that first broadcast on august eleventh. Twenty eleven and you've listened to every program since by. Perhaps you join us more recently in might not know how world radio got started so we asked our founding fathers so to speak to reach back into their memory archives and tell us the story. I'm nick eicher. i'm the chief. Content officer and one the inventors of world radio along with joseph's life before i came to world radio broadcasting was something that i was highly interested and I've always been a big fan of national public radio. npr For all of its secular sort of faults it's insufficient world view. They were the best in the business in a lot of ways they they did seek to do serious journalism and i thought well world does that. what would world magazine sound like. If world magazine were radio program has just sort of a thought experiment. My name is joseph's life and i was the senior producer and co host for world radio from its inception in two thousand eleven until spring of two thousand seventeen for years. My longtime boss. Steve moore at crown financial ministries. He and i would kind of discuss in the hallway. You know it's a shame that there's no type of thing like that a longer form radio well done good sound production. That's done from a christian worldview standpoint and so one day we had this idea that maybe we should go talk to the people at world magazine about this because world had been in the print business for a good long while and that time doing a very fine job of print journalism. Funny thing is we both sort of separately had ideas for radio programs. And when joseph called me one time he said i'd like to add like to pitch a program idea to you I said oh man come come on up and let's talk about it and we did and they said that's a wonderful idea. We would love to do that. You guys figure out a way to pay for it and we're with you. Of course this was the this was the problem. Because we couldn't figure out a way to pay ford well fast forward to twenty eleven and nick called me and he said i feel like the dog. Who's been chasing the truck for a long time. And he's finally caught the truck and doesn't know what to do with it. I said well what are you talking about. And he said well. We have an opportunity an invitation from the salem radio network to do the type of program that we've been talking about the way we approached it was well. Here's a chance to reach an audience with the kind of journalism that we do at world and if we can take that content put it out in front of a new audience. maybe it will attract more magazine readers. The board was appropriately skeptical. Let me say that. Nobody really thought back. Then that podcasting was going to be a viable enterprise or a viable sort of platform for journalism of this sort it was. Here's an opportunity to go on a radio network to do a magazine style programme for broadcast for commercial broadcast. And nick said we have an opportunity to do a pilot program for salem. They won't just sign off on the whole idea. they want to hear pilot first because we're magazine publishers. We haven't done radio and they wanna make sure we can pull this off and he said. Will you help me and i said yeah. I'll help you do the pilot. I'm not going to commit to anything else. But i hope you do the pilot memorial day twenty eleven a day of remembrance for those who died in defense of their country who made themselves a barricade between nation and phone. I'm nick eicher publisher world magazine. Joseph slim ahead in this hour tracing and so for memorial day weekend in two thousand eleven we produced a memorial day. Themed pilot program that aired on the salem radio network and with which they were very pleased and actually we were fairly pleased with it. Two for our first Venture out world magazine editor in chief. Marvin alaskan talks about six battles battles that shaped the war between the states coming later. A remembrance of america's last world war one fat laid to rest just weeks ago and that led to a weekend radio program that green lighted for august of twenty eleven from world magazine. This is the debut of the world and everything in it. We take time to explore stories and issues and tell you important things. You probably won't hear about anywhere else. I'm nick eicher. And i'm joseph's life this week will run the gamut from defense cuts to captain america the admirable patriotism in. This film is actually refreshing. That's certainly something surprising and worth noting coming out of hollywood. It was very very difficult to get that first program out the door. But by the grace of god somehow we did houston and it wasn't bad and then the next week we did another one and he got a little bit better and next week better and the next week a little bit better. It's the world and everything in it. I'm joseph and i'm nick eicher. One of every four book sold in america today turns on whether a state constitution permits public funds to go directly to schools. It's been very prominent in the national vocabulary. These past few days is fear as evidenced by the stock. Market's plunge the real issue is that we are still spending more than we're taking in the bad guy in the movie. Taunts captain america to kenyan. Us senate correspondent for news. Has more obama. Says the speech will outline type for sure it's cadence and a click clack. That's all its own. His most damning indictment is that the book teaches readers how to implement schafer's idea that a biblical worldview should suffused every aspect of one's life. That's what a worldview does stepping into the book here at world magazine also known as the office of susan. Alaska the solution cal. We don't wanna leave. everyone depressed. Well i mean look. The solution is what it's always been a transformation of the human art. She brainstorms talking points for her. Upcoming women's bible study lecture unfusions and considers how she can improve it and make it better than alice's talk of last week. Imagine believing that we don't need a savior and So we continued with that weekend program for quite some time it. It didn't take us long to figure out. There wasn't much of an audience so we thought well maybe the audience is is weekday and the day came when nick said all right. We want to do a daily program now from world news group. This is the debut of the weekday edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm nick eicher. It's monday may sixth twenty thirteen. And i'm joseph's life this morning mounting pressure on president obama to take action against syria. The united states said there was clear. Red lines those red lines to the in the view of most have been crossed and he has failed to act plus backlash against a coal to crack down on religious speech in the us military. I am not going to run from my religious freedoms from my right onto the constitution. Also what republicans need to do to connect with hispanic voters and the winner of the two thousand thirteen. New england gerbil pageant. I a summary of the morning's news. Emergency crews responded multiple explosions near serious capital city. Damascus i it was nick and it was me. We did bring in some of the people from world magazine. The folks who have been writing. Who would come in and do some segments for us. Whatever people in the muslim world may have thought of president obama. They now are faced with someone who has not stood by his word who has been back. Enforce immigration reform has been A big issue that his tended to alienate hispanics from the republican. Party is the policy wrong. Is the messaging wrong. The reason justice ginsburg speech is in the news. Now is because of the redefinition of marriage cases soon to be decided some observers see her statements as a preview of how she's going to vote in those cases so many families had so many people who died in that war both north and south the bitterness was enormous. There was more discrimination against blacks. They were free but still held down in so many ways Not allowed to vote off and not allowed to own property in egypt. Demiana war twenty four year. Old schoolteacher has been accused of insulting islam while teaching history of religions to fourth graders. Outsiders may not know it but our own kids know when we're pretending from my dad. I learned the importance of honesty in such matters. The outcome simply doesn't depend on me in my performance might trust has to be always in the one father who is eternally faithful. And so that's how we began sort of cross pollinating with the magazine and bringing those people and but what we realized is that ultimately we needed to build out a radio team and you know we did have some freelancers that we went to and you know. Joseph had a bunch of people that he knew from you know from his radio days after days of optimism. That's where people. I can't covington came from johnny franklin and carl pete's the clock is ticking as these were all people that That joseph had worked with jim henry. Several thousand refugees were reported rescued from saint. Nick and i prayed about this program. I can remember he. And i were at a national religious broadcasters convention. This is probably in early. Twenty twelve so. We've been doing the program you know maybe six months at that point and it was very difficult and we were just weren't sure how we were going to continue to make this work because it was it was so hard and there were just not enough people putting their hand to the plow so to speak you know we didn't have enough workers to nothing laborers to get done what we needed to get done. And he and i were in a stairwell at This hotel where the convention was taking place and there was a little bench there and he and i sat down on that bench and just prayed together. Just begging the lord to help us. Put us in contact with the right people so that we could carry on this project. And the lord answered that prayer overtime and wonderful ways with people he provided so we created a radio station friendly daily program and we just took the content and potted up as a podcast. You know there's no extra effort really. The main effort was in producing the program. So we'll throw it out there and make it available as a podcast. But podcasting wasn't quite the thing then that it is now a matter of fact in twenty eleven if you had a podcast the only way people could get this on their device on their ipod was to download the program to their computer and then you had to take a wire and plug it into your device and you had to sink but then in the summer of twenty twelve so we'd been doing the weekend program for About a year at that point apple announced an innovation going forward you would be able to download a podcast directly to your device and this was the big game changer for a lot of people but certainly from world radio because we knew at that point that access to the program was about to become much easier people no longer had the download and sync. They could just get it directly to their device and so what we pretty quickly discovered. Was the radio. Audience wasn't really for us. What we found was that people really loved it as a podcast. Not necessarily as a broadcast. I we had purpose to put the podcast behind a paywall and create our own app as the only place that you could get it and just sort of package it as. Here's a bundle of content. That is maybe more attractive than just the print magazine. You get all of this stuff and again. This is this is accidental. In one sense providential in another we couldn't quite make the app work the way we wanted to. And that's just being honest about it. So what we did in the mean. Time is we thought. Well let's just you know we're putting a lot of effort into producing this program. Let's just put it out where it's the easiest to get that is make it available on the apple platform and just give it away and when we did that. The audience exploded the world and everything in it is made possible by listeners. Like us my name. Is joanna mailing. I live in burnsville minnesota. My name is tim berkey. And i'm a real estate agent in granger indiana. I'm becky fell apac pack. Hi i'm steven. My name is mary. Brian is caleb eibnet. I'm aaron ho capacity sonia bassett. I'm a stay at home. Mom living in. Burundi brad davis. Emily has many. Oh i am jake. Swing and i am a military officer serving in qatar. Hope you enjoyed today's program. It used to be that world. Radio was there to promote the legacy product world magazine. Now it's its own thing Dan today is august night. Thank you for turning world radio to help start your day. Good morning. i'm mary reicher. And i'm paul bump coming next on the world and everything in it voices from the past many of the voices you hear today have been on the program from the early days but some of our old friends have moved onto other things in honor of our anniversary celebration. We invited several of them to come back and share reflections of their time at world radio. Today we'll hear from four of them. I up our very first staffer who has some fond memories of one of her. First field assignments interviewing senator james langford. I'm christina darnell. And i was one of the first world radio team members. I was hired out of the world journalism institute. I had just graduated with my masters in journalism. And i was excited to be doing one of my first field. Assignments in washington dc. At that point. I had been working mostly from home and so the work is professional but the clothes are not so much so i was excited to be andy see. There was dressed up wearing a suit. I had these black boots with heels and it didn't take me long to realize i had not thought that through all that well and langford was a busy man. He didn't have time to sit in his office. Day and recorded interviews so we had to walk and talk. And i remember walking out onto the tiled hallway and click clack of my boots echoing through what felt like the entire building and i panicked knowing. That sound was going to record louder than anything else. And so i had been my knees. Almost like a squat angle. The hills up and walk on my tiptoes. And so here. I am trying to maintain some shred of dignity and professionalism asking serious questions along the hallway of some of the most powerful politicians in the world looking and feeling like a toddler stumbling around in her mother. Shoes and lankford thankfully took it in stride. he didn't miss a beat and answering questions but also distinctly remember him trying not to laugh and i learned that day. That professional is good but practical is better also. That sound is one of those senses that we tend to underestimate the value and the impact that it has on our lives. I think that people who are in the audio industry probably have a better grasp that. But i think it's relevant for everyone. Michael cochran and i was one of the first members of the world radio team. It's hard to believe it's been ten years. I remember attending the november two thousand eleven world journalism in asheville north carolina. Mary reichert and i were both in the same class. And both of us had a interest in world's new weekly radio program. Joseph slide the founding producer of the world and everything in it was there in asheville to talk about his knickers dream of producing a daily radio program. Creating content for daily news and features program is a huge task and joseph was looking for recruits from our class by eagerly. signed on as world. Radio's first technology reporter. But with only a week's worth of formal journalism training and zero experience in radio production. I had my work cut out for me. The first thing i learned was that sound is really important in radio. That may seem obvious but a good radio feature should consist solely of the sound of my own voice it needs to be filled with sound clips that paint and audio picture for the listener a good produce peaceful have not only clips of people speaking but even sound effects for peace. I did in two thousand fourteen about the exploration of a twenty seven hundred year old venetian shipwreck. We found background track at a scuba divers bottles. That really made it come to life in my time with world radio. I've reported on more than one hundred fifty technology stories ranging from flying cars to advances in medicine and even contemporary linguistic phenomena. Such as up. Talk and vocal fry and all those years of reporting. I've worked with and learned from the most amazing and talented colleagues mary. Nick joseph kent carl and so many others so happy ten anniversary world radio. I can't wait to hear what's in store for the next ten years. I'm susan all ascii for about a decade. I was a reporter in story. Coach for the podcast. I remember the first time i did. A feature story was twenty twelve. Nick gave me a mike recorder some operating instructions and sent me on my way. The story was about our international hope award winner in ghana recorder everywhere and night. I'd upload the sound to dropbox using the hotels very slow internet. I brought back great. Mb car on a bumpy highway. A woman talking about tupperware business singing sewing machine starting. I messed up when recording voices. It didn't get the microphone close enough to people's mouths. That's one difference in writing for radio. Tech matters. Embed sound makes for bad radio. We were blessed to have talented technical people who made lemonade. Out of my lemons. In gradually i improved after awhile. I began editing feature stories for others and then started recruiting writers from our mid-career class to join the gang. The podcast more polish now. But i remind myself not to despise the day of small beginnings. I'm warren smith. And i was one of the first members of the world radio team. I vividly remember meeting sometimes. Harried and frantic meetings with nick eicher. Joseph's life kevin martin marvin alaska and other members of the world team in the months before we launched many of us had previous radio experience so we thought we knew what we were getting into but we came face to face with the old saying you have your whole life to get ready for that first but only twenty four hours to get ready for the second one. We made a lot of decisions in those first months that we had to revisit a lot of change at tation and flexibility in sued we had to learn new processes new technologies. We had to adopt a schedule and pace. That was far different from that of the magazine and the website. But i'm also amazed that some of the decisions we made in those early days have stood the test of time commitment to permanent things ideas biblical ideas vick don't change our relentless commitment to a biblical worldview and to serving you the listener with content. You simply can't get anywhere else. It's one of the great privileges of my professional life to have been part of world radio from the beginning and to continue to be a part of it through the listening in podcast today a decade later please pray that we will remain faithful to the biblical foundation on which world radio rest. And here's to another ten years of world. Radio all for the glory of the great and good god that we serve. Additional support comes from bibliophiles a production of the center for lit podcast network literary conversations about faith arts and culture. More at center four lit dot com slash podcasts and from ligonier ministries celebrating fifty years of proclaiming. God's holiness thousands of video teaching series books articles more at ligonier dot org. Today's monday august nine. Th good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm paul and i'm mary record. Have you ever wondered how the program got. Its name or where. The theme song came from one more time. Here's former senior. Producer and world. radio co-founder joseph's life the program got its name. Because i was reading the scriptures and nick had invited me up to talk about. This program idea invited me up to ashville and i had just read psalm. Eighty nine and in verse eleven. It talks about the world and the about the lord he has founded the world and everything in it. And i thought you know. That's a really good name for this program. The nick is talking about doing the name. All things considered which comes from k gestures and by the way had already been taken Many years before by national public radio. And i was trying to come up with something that was kind of like that and find the scriptural phrase the world and everything in it which is also an act. Seventeen by the way so as in the old testament and in the new testament. It's an act seventeen. Were were peter's speaking on mars hill and proclaiming the unknown god. And so. I thought you know this. This gives us such great rails to run on because this program can be about the world and everything in it from the context of the god who founded it to this god who is unknown to most of our culture but everything in the world is something that he that he created or is there because of his creative activity and we also wanted to stress. The idea this is very important to me that this program is not about how terrible things are and we all know that things are terrible in many ways and the news often very sad The news is often very concerning but nonetheless. There is the god of the universe who is working out his plans and purposes to a good end and we can always be confident in that and we can always be a joyful. We can enjoy the things that are around us that are good and noble and of good report and so we wanted to make sure that the program not only gave the news of the day but also had this overarching idea. That god is in control and we can live confidently and we can be happy warriors. And because this is his world and everything the theme music for the world and everything and it comes from a him that Many people notes in many many hymnals. It's called this is my father's world and the reason that We chose that music is. The tune is actually called terribly. Oughta good earth and this connects to this whole idea that the world is god's world and he is superintending this world and he made this world good so is this is the good earth but the reason in particular that i chose. That theme is because there's a lyric in i think is the third verse of this is my father's world that says and though the wrong seems oft so strong he is the ruler yet and this is the idea that we wanted to convey with this program that though we hear about all this stuff that is so wrong god is still in control is still the ruler yet tomorrow broadband alternatives. The white house wants to invest in wired internet infrastructure. But innovators may have better ideas and more tenth anniversary reflections. That and more tomorrow. I'm paul butler. And i'm mary ragged. The world and everything in it comes to you from world radio for ten years now. What a ride. World's mission now and then is biblically objective journalism that informs educates and inspires. The bible says we who takes week fellowship. Together within god's house we walk in the th raw go now in greece in peace.

In the united states the death rate has not increased significantly but hospitalizations have doubled since late june as new kovic nineteen infections continue to spiral upward on wednesday new daily cases. Topped fifty six thousand for the first time. Since april that reportedly has health officials within the biden administration debating whether to change the federal guidance on mask-wearing in public at the moment that guidance still states that vaccinated americans generally do not need to wear a mask and white house press secretary. Jen psaki told reporters thursday. The head of the cdc our public health arm just spoke to this earlier this morning and made clear that there had not been a decision to change our mass guidance. The american academy of pediatrics. This week recommended that all students over the age of two where a mask when they return to school in the fall china is once again blocking a full investigation into the origins of cova nineteen. World's sarah sh- weinsberg has that story. The chinese government thursday rejected the world health organization's plan for the second phase of a study into the origins of the pandemic. The plan would further probe the possibility that the virus may have leaked from a laboratory and wuhan a senior. Chinese health minister called that unacceptable a team of investigators from the who conducted the first phase of the probe earlier this year. Despite only having access to very limited information the team declared it was extremely unlikely that the virus escaped from lab but last week w. h. o. Director general Conceded that there had been a premature push to rule out the lab leak theory the biden administration reacted condemning. China's continued stonewalling in a statement. The white house said we are deeply disappointed. Their position is irresponsible and frankly dangerous reporting for world. I'm sarah weinsberg. The biden administration has announced new sanctions against a cuban official and a government special brigade that in response to human rights abuses during a government. Crackdown on protests in cuba earlier. This month state. Department spokesman ned price we will stand with The cuban people who are exercising their universal rights of peaceful protests. Peaceful assembly Freedom of speech the treasury department said the sanctions will target the cuban interior ministry special brigade and military and political leader named osvaldo lopez miata. Us officials say he has played an integral role in the repression of ongoing protests in cuba. Cuban forces of attacked protesters and arrested or disappeared more than one hundred demonstrators covington and straight ahead the rise in depths of despair plus politics and poetry is the world and everything in a. It's friday july twenty third twenty twenty one glad to have you along today addition of the world and everything in it good morning. I'm marina brown. Nick hiker its culture friday. We are watching as best. We can events in cuba. And when i say as best we can what i mean to say is not very well because cuba is in the grip of totalitarian communist government so information flow is a big problem. What we do know is this that everyday cubans. These are the people who have to live under that crushing system. They have become restless and a few weekends ago. Took to the streets chanting down with dictatorship. And we want liberty this week on this program. We heard from a cuban pastor who happened to be in miami just as the unprecedented protests broke out back home and so he was able to speak freely from the united states. Talking with oh ao. He kerry reporting for world. Pastor alexis peres spoke about. How the cuban church is responding to what's happening around them and you have another nothing. Nothing you're so. It is difficult to be used in cuba. We don't have to open persecution that you will see new places but they always trying to limited church of the most of the christian they are. They are okay. What is happening is coming. Blend of the government. I would say that most of the because we have been suffering though most of the reason also cuba. We don't think that we should be involved in these guys of biden events. I'm trying to think of a government so within that we need to wait and god pray be based makers on the unseal do do its culture. Friday john stonestreet is here. He's president of the colson center and host of the breakpoint podcast. Good morning john. Good morning. We'll john pastor peres told us that among those arrested as a result of the protests and cuba were pastors. He was saying that most christians have not gotten involved in the protests but some pastors have and what the government seems to fear here is pastors getting involved then parishioners getting involved trying to stamp that out before it's too late but i wonder whether it is. What do you think well. It is hard to know. Exactly what's going on. it's notable though. Isn't it that someone Like this a government like this is afraid of christians. Afraid of the church and that's because of the church has been among the greatest forces of liberty in human history. it often goes in unexpected directions. I think it's also notable to silence the silence that we've heard from progressive liberals in america who you know. Spend time telling us how. Great cuba's literacy rate izard in the case of bernie sanders or cuba's healthcare system or anything else Earlier this week. Roger carried the letter of from a cuban catholic named maria victoria oliveiria. I think is her name Writing to the pope and basically said you know the pope's silence on this has been notable. And i'm going to quote her here It hurts a lot that while they the people who took to the streets asking for freedom. You have words to congratulate argentina's triumph in the copa america. You talk about plastic waste in the seas but have not made it. Even a public prayer for the detainees the disappeared in all who are frightened in their homes throughout our country. There is a remarkable silence here From a lot of people. That are the first to tell us that. Silence is violence in any other context whether or not the issues that they're talking about are anywhere near the moral and cultural and historical gravity of this event. I think one of the most interesting things here in. And of course i can say it's interesting from the safety of our perch here in the united states and it's brutal on the ground you know. Will this be the end of communism in cuba may be so But boy whenever these things fall apart. There's an awful lot of victims in the blast radius. You might say of. The damage affects a lot of people. The the other thing. One last thing. Nick and myrna and that is whenever you see something like this and other parts of the country you can almost since. There's got to be christians involved. There's got to be christians who care about the truth about reality that communism denies not just their suppression of you. Know theism or their denial of the celebration of christmas. But just so way. God made people that there is a yearning for freedom in the human heart that was put there by god. And that's what we're seeing in cuba. I think john. I'd like to go back to report. That came out about a week ago. By the centers for disease control. It was sadly interesting piece of data. And it's this now. We know that kovin was the big story in two thousand twenty. But here's another deaths from overdoses. They spiked up thirty percent year on year. The number in two thousand nine hundred seventy one thousand. The number in the year twenty twenty was ninety. Three thousand thirty percent rise. Do you think that this is a continuation of a deaths from despair. Trend that we've talked about here before. Have you seen some analysis on that Yeah have and. I think it absolutely is because this is something that i worried about from the very beginning these. These are the pre existing conditions culturally speaking for cova they are clearly co morbidity the numbers you just read are just the overdose numbers when you talk about. The suicide numbers particularly of students in schools. this is something where You know the push of teachers unions everywhere to keep students home. It actually may being at home that much. More dangerous In terms of suicidal we saw it up close and personal here in colorado having had to deal with a dramatic spike in suicides among high school students. Even in el paso county where i live and the work that was done to address that in partnership between the public schools and the churches it was a remarkable thing and of course code hits and all that gets put to a stop. You know you look at this. The cdc in themselves. I really remember a few months ago. Saying twenty five percent of school aged children had suicidal idea during covert. I can't even believe that that could possibly be true that number so outrageous and yet here we are Look the Physical conditions don't define who we are the physical conditions affect who we are in in the context of our cultural moment and there were plenty of pre existing conditions that have to do with isolation that have to do with the lack of accountability with other people that have to do with the lack of meaning and purpose which is often found in being able to accomplish something to be live out are the creation mandate and biblical terms covert left room for none of that and so staying. Home is not a solution when screen time isolates us from real relationships. Real friends from being known takes us deeper into addictions than to just increase the time on screens mike. Keep us physically safe and as far more emotionally spiritually Relation lee risk. I i expect all of these numbers that are just now coming out from ovid To be really bad. I hope i'm wrong but i i don't think i will be Unfortunately john i've spent a lot of time telling the back stories behind the music of a number of christian singers and songwriters. And i guess that's why these next two stories caught my attention so the first one matthew west who's voice we've heard here on world wrote a song. Called modest is hottest a fun little song on modesty which he pulled down after a twitter protest and he said sorry guests. I'm just an overprotective dad or such switching gears to another award winning singer songwriter. Amy grant. And i heard this one from you john. But for the listener. I'll summarize grant appeared on a pro. Lgbt podcast and when asked about gay artist and country music she said. and i'll quote. I think it's important to set a welcome table for people of all sexual orientations because none of us are a surprise to god. Nothing about who we are or what we've done so here are two hugely popular christian artists and you know. Maybe they're really doing what they believe in. But i want to ask the question then. Morrison is asking in one of his new songs. Almost saying it. Where have all the rebels gone. That tells you awful. Lot about cultural pressure doesn't it and who knew. Van morrison is releasing new songs. God bless and that's a that's kind of success of mick jagger proportions. How's that still going on. Look at the matthew west thing. I don't even wanna talk about. I think it was a fun. Little song in the controversy was a folk controversy and this is ridiculous And i'll just say that and leave it there. The grant story was an interesting one because she's legendary right in in the industry And she didn't say anything. Technically wrong did she. You know it's important at a welcome table for people of all sexual orientation is not a surprise to god. Nothing about who we are. What we've done. I agree with that what i said. In our short commentary on this which is concerning is that it is very easy to say the culturally acceptable truth and then not say the culturally unacceptable part of the truth and to think what we've said the truth the pro. Lgbt podcast host took her words as an endorsement of his lifestyle. Those of us who communicate have a responsibility into the ins and outs of communication. And that means. I have a responsibility to think clearly about what i say. I have a responsibility to articulate. Clearly what i say. And i have a responsibility to understand the listener. The audience you in other words when you telegraph culturally acceptable truth and are silent. forever on culturally unacceptable truth. It's very clear what you're doing. This is called tickling ears and the new testament at the Omission is intentional. And it communicates something to the listener. That we need to know is being communicated now. Look i get it. I mean none of us want the conversation to end. None of us want you know. Lost people to walk away from the table. And i you know i. I'm not saying there was any sort of nefarious nece or that you know she. Herself has become pro. Lgbt i don't know i have no inside knowledge of that at all. I just i just know that There's an easy way to do this And the easy way to do. This often communicates the exact opposite of what is true In this case you you know you're going to be asked these questions And you can decide whether the goal a answering is to be liked to be invited back to be accepted to not offend anyone or to honor christ and the you don't always have to choose between those options but increasingly in our culture. You need to be prepared to choose between these options. John stonestreet is president of the colson center. And home of the breakpoint podcast. John was great to talk with you.

Thank you for turning to world radio to help start your day. Good morning. i'm a brown. And i'm nick. Eicher coming next on the world and everything in it a scary new film series targeting teams earlier this month net flicks released a trilogy of horror films adapted from our l stein's fear street books. Some teams may be familiar with the series which stein himself rates. Pg but the r rated films include occult elements and woke values. not in the original and reviewer. Emily whitman says that makes them dead. On arrival for christian fam- a history of or has earned it the nickname killer capital. Usa fear street trilogies rated r for strong bloody violence drug content language and some sexual content. So yeah the three films. Don't look a lot like rl stein's original fear street books instead. They look a lot. More like financial blockbusters scream and friday the thirteenth. It's the billion dollar industry at this point. The fear industry in hollywood and that has been a number. That has been growing and billy hollowell. He's a spokesman pure flex and he's written about hollywood's financial incentives to create horror films and his book playing with fire but money isn't the only factor here with christian faith. Declining across america. Hollowell also says spiritual confusion is driving. Interest in occult themes movies like the fear street trilogy tap into real spiritual hunger. Just not an wholesome way we innately know. There's something more most of us. The vast majority of human beings and so we sometimes go the wrong way and trying to figure out what that is not going towards christ which were called to go that spiritual vacuum also leads to a deconstruction of traditional christian morals. And i don't just mean the usual sex violence and bad language. Fear street may be the first major woke horror movie an interview hosted by coming soon dot net director lee. Janney explained the ideology driving the script. It was kind of the reason that i felt like we could make street now. So we could. We could tackle things like you know systemic oppression and police violence and police planting evidence and In kind of like you said homophobia all of all of the things but it was baked into this idea of this is the central kind of conflict of shady ciders and sunnyvale. To get what she sang. You need to know little about the fear street. World it's basically divided into two separate towns. Sunnyvale and shady side. Sunnyvale is the fluent white town and shady. Ville is the poor diverse town. Next door with a gruesome murder problem. Here's a clip. From fear street. Part to nineteen seventy eight in which two characters discussed the town town. You feel it. Don't you shady side there something years just holding down forcing us scared. Admitted the overall plot centers around lesbian couple dina and sam who come from shady side in the first film. Sam disturbs a witches grave and soon the witch and her henchmen begin to hunt sam eventually the which seems to possess her in the second film deena and her brother. Try to cure sam girlfriend. Visit a woman who survived an earlier killing spree by the same witch. Who saw her. Can you survive. What was different cleese. Maybe something happened to you. Something that can help us. Stop nine the third film. The teens go back to sixteen sixty six to discover the origins of the witch and her curse spoiler alert here turns out the which wasn't a witch at all the good family upstanding white puritans are the real source of all evil and carnage the second half of the film jumps back to nineteen ninety-four. There dina finally figures out how to save sam and shady side. We need to kill nick. Good nick good happens to be the white sheriff so in this fantasy world. Lesbian love is good. Puritans are evil and the only way to stop that evil to kill the white sheriff who confirmed his forefathers deal with the devil although actually it turns out. The devil isn't all that scary in this clip from the third movie. Dna explains what she really fears. I don't feel the devil. I fear the neighbor. Who would accused me. I feel the mother that would let her daughter. Union leaders like laughs. The slaughter expect us to just follow him by going back to the puritans janea connects modern day politics with the san of our forefathers things like the salem witch trials in slavery the also present extreme caricatures of christians as judgmental and cruel for instance. Here's how one mom sounds when she finds her daughter in a lesbian relationship. See that's pretty extreme before we hit back. I think it's actually worth asking. Are christians doing all. We can to live down. This caricature too often. I see social media posts by folks who claim to be christians. The sound a lot like that mom. Of course the woke solution for evil isn't just misguided it mirrors the same kind of cruelty and blindness. Fear street filmmakers rightly perceive. Love at the center of man's fight against evil but they put disordered sexual love and the place of god's divine love and as with any idol. It's a deadly mistake. Here's billy hollow again. Hollywood has often spent a lot of time ignoring denigrating just ignoring the only solution that we have to evil in this world and that is the tragic part and the i think sort of the call to christians to of how do we engage with this in a way that actually reaches people because not only are people not being reached. They're being given an opposing. Ideology that actually slashes. You know the only thing that would be the solution for them. If you're a parent who can keep your teens from watching these films by all means do it but let's face it. Millions of teens including christian teens are going to see them that means parents grandparents and pastors need to be willing to talk about their troubling themes if we do that humbly prayerfully seeking to lessen as well as instruct we have nothing to fear just like the apostle john says perfect love cast out all fear. I'm emily whitman Today is friday july twenty third. Good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm nick and myrna brown time now forward play this month george grant dives into one of the most significant works of the english language just as it is axiomatically assumed that politics and religion did not nate for particularly pleasant dinner table conversation it is likewise assumed that they do not make for particularly pleasant poetry. Either but john. Milton sunders both assumptions in his masterful. Work paradise lost. It is a work that is explicitly political and inescapably religious. Indeed it is a prime example of that most unbending ideological and theological dogmatism that characterize the zealously partisan seventeenth century and yet it is magnificent poetry its beauty and grace are undeniable. Its majestic cadence. It's lofty vision and it. Soaring images have earned. Milton a place in english letters. Second only to shakespeare. According to samuel johnson. Milton's work is a treasure of unbounded breadth and depth and height. Walter scott agreed saying it set the standard against which all future epochs might be judged herald bloom has asserted if shakespeare is the center of the western literary canon. Milton is it's anchor and thomas. Macaulay said milton's poetry acts like an incantation is. Words are words of enchantment. It is astonishing that such a work should come from the pin of an author as controversial as milton who lived in an equally controversial age. A bloody civil war sundered was once merry england that calamitous time was at then followed by the rage side of king charles. Ten years puritan. Parliamentary rule and then finally the restoration of the stuart monarchy these events. We're not merely the background to milton's life. They were his life. He was an active passionate and crucial player in. Those revolutionary events and his poetry is indelibly marked by his activism and his devotion. Milton's intention in paradise laws was to explain the world of conflict in contemporary england. Through the lens of the great war in heaven between satan's infernal minions and god's providential kingdom in an astonishingly beautiful epic poem to rival homer and virgil in order to accomplish that. He not only controversy really recast the biblical narrative of the fall but he also controversy elite recast the english language as well contributing more new words or meal. Loge 'isms than any other writer in history. The imposed new meanings on old words like space goose and fragrance. He transformed verbs into nouns and nouns into verbs like stunning enjoyable and irrresponsible. He created a host of new compound. Words like arch fiend self delusion and lovelorn and he invented a veritable catalogue of entirely. New words like pandemonium terrific sensuous dismissive complacency laterna debauchery padlock and didactic. Milton died in sixteen. Seventy four just. After the second edition of paradise lost had appeared to mild critical acclaim during his life. It sold well enough to earn milton. A total of about ten pounds but over the next two decades the book went through six editions including one published in sixteen. Seventy eight with large engraved illustrations since then it has never lost its status as classic and it has never stopped being a source of controversy. Milton would not have had it any other way.

President biden on thursday announced sweeping new pandemic requirements for millions of federal workers. He urged employees to get vaccinated but is not mandating. Vaccinations buddy said anyone who chooses not to get the shots required to mask no matter where they were test one or two times a week to see. If they've they've acquired cove socially distance and generally won't be allowed to travel for work decried what he called an american tragedy of preventable deaths.

Setting the importance of social distancing during the pandemic. It reason that many evicted renters would be forced to move in with others or turn to shelters but multiple federal courts ruled the. Cdc overstepped its at. The white house said thursday that president biden would like to extend the federal election moratorium due to the spread of the delta variant but the administration says its hands are tied after a recent supreme court ruling in split five to four decision last month. The high court allowed the eviction band to continue through the end of july. But the court signaled it would block any additional extensions without an act of congress reporting for world. I'm kristen flavin with traffic. At the southern border and cases of in nineteen both surging the biden administration is expected to hold off on partially ending the title. Forty two policy. That is a cdc public health order that allows the government to quickly expel immigrants who enter the country illegally. In order to slow the spread of the virus with the delta variant running rampant the administration has reportedly decided to put the brakes on plans rollback title forty two four now meantime. Republicans on capitol hill continued to sound alarms over the migrant. Surge senate minority leader mitch.

Us economy is bouncing back but maybe not as quickly as expected. A new report shows us. Gross domestic product grew at a six point five percent annual rate in the second quarter this year. That was a little better than the first quarter but significantly slower than expected federal reserve chairman. Jerome powell said this week that employers still can't find enough workers and that a low labor participation rate is slowing the economic recovery factors related to the pandemic such as caregiving needs ongoing fears of the virus and unemployment insurance payments appear to be weighing on employment growth. Those unemployment insurance payments are now the subject of numerous legal battles. Many states are ending their participation in the so-called enhanced unemployment program which gives recipients an extra three hundred dollar weekly federal check on top of state benefits but some people are suing to keep the checks coming and judges in maryland and indiana have ruled that the states must resume the extra payments for now. Indiana attorney general. Todd makita lamented on thursday.

Battery and assault has alleged victim was sixteen years old at the time attending his brother's wedding in massachusetts mccarrick denies the accusations reporting for world. I'm lee jones. And i'm kellington straight ahead a pro-life court case heads to the supreme court plus your listener feedback. This is the world and everything in it's friday july thirtieth twenty twenty. One glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning i'm nick. And myrna brown back in two thousand eighteen mississippi passed a law called the station all age act. It bans abortion after fifteen weeks with two exceptions pregnancies involving life threatening health emergencies or fetal abnormalities income. Hannibal with life and response and abortion business in the state. Capital jackson sued and won- in federal district court striking down the law as unconstitutional under supreme court precedent undeterred. The state's attorney general lynn fitch took the case to the us supreme court and the court will hear it now. I'm like other failed. Attempts to limit or ban. Abortion fitch is directly calling into question the constitutionality of the right to abortion the central holding of the landmark roe v wade decision of one thousand nine hundred ninety three. Well it's culture. Friday johnstone street is here. He's president of the colson center and host of break point podcast. John good morning. Good morning john. You like to say it's important not just to make abortion illegal but unthinkable. And i'd like you to talk about what those steps are but don't they at least include the lengthy and expensive legal efforts as well absolutely they do. It's important for me to note that i didn't make that phrase up and listen That line i've heard it from many people who have spent a lot of blood sweat and tears and trying to defend the lives of the pre-born and they get the fact that as many people say that politics tends to be downstream from culture. So you the political results by getting the cultural change. It's not always that way but it often is that way. Sometimes however to overturn great evil you have to do as much legal or sometimes even the legal part of it. The political part of it can be upstream can be political laws. That do the right thing. Even if the larger culture is not ready for the rights legislation would be an example of that. I think now what. I mean in terms of making this unthinkable. And that's what makes this case in mississippi and particularly the words of attorney general fitch her briefing. So fascinating i mean. This was the most devastating critique of abortion law that we have seen in this sort of a document looking at first of all that america's abortion laws are completely out of step with the rest of the world so You know the company that we keep in terms of abortion on demand are some of the worst actors of human rights in the world right now secondly the what we now know. Just a clear outline of what we know about fetal development things that weren't known in one thousand nine hundred ninety two things that have become clear and also then make it clear what abortion is and. That's part of this cultural change. Myrna which is you have to actually uncover evil And then the. I also found it fascinating that the attorney general outlined three parties at abortion harms and and at least abortion on demand. Obviously the child but also the mom that this idea that you know this is just like going in for an outpatient surgery and everything is fine That treats an entire group of women who regret their abortion who have physical and mental challenges because of their abortion. It treats them as if they don't exist but also this is big attorney. General fitch outlined. How this harm the medical profession and what we're seeing across the western world as abortion law turns into doctor assisted suicide law that suddenly a profession that is built around helping inhaling becomes a profession that mutilates and kills jump in on this john talking about cultural change i think strongly implies cultural institutions to help bring about that change And it seems that it's getting more and more difficult to protect those institutions. Here is the latest example. That i found the virginia values act as they call it. It's a revision to state nondiscrimination law that brings in gender identity among other things. So here's the story. A pregnancy care network to churches and three christian schools sued the state saying that the religious exemption was unworkable for them and now the case has gotten tossed out of court because the judge ruled that none of the parties had been harmed yet they had to wait to be harmed in other words and let me just take a pause From the story just to for a note to the listener if you're not signed up for world's liberties free email newsletter. You really ought to be. That's where i learned about this story. from our religious liberty specialist steve west former federal prosecutor turn journalists and we will place a link in today's program transcript but you can probably remember w. n. g. dot org slash newsletters. Really good stuff in there and it's free but back into the story John steve reported for world that the religious exemption that they're arguing about only allows churches and other ministries to base hiring and firing decisions on how employee self identify religiously and not. This is the crucial point not on whether they follow a groups beliefs on things like sexuality and marriage. It's a really fine distinction. But it makes all the difference. So here's my question. Don't these kinds of realities make things different from. Let's say the day of of william wilberforce. I know is a hero. bu- but having to navigate these complicated modern societies like ours with rules and regulations. Like those Simply to preserve the freedom of institutions to fight cultural battles like this really complicated yeah institutions matter greatly institutions matter on a number of levels within Culture and cultural change in other words believes and behaviors and identities are preserved by institutions within a society. You can see for example. I think there's an example going on right now with the olympics where there is a reticence of athletes to identify as americans. You have athletes saying i. I'm doing this for myself. Not for my country. I mean that blatantly. It's an interesting thing and it's dramatically different than any thing before. So what does it look like when an institution like sport like the. Us olympic team has lost the loyalty of its people. And then what you have then is in individualism and that's not going to be enough to sustain any sort of identity so you're seeing this kind of happened. In real time. I think I think right now But that does underscore the importance of protecting institutions. But it's getting challenged every year every time there is a challenge institutional religious freedom and the supreme court. And so. that's why this matters what you have here is what we have. Seen increasingly at the state level we can go back to california. It's assault on the religious freedom of christian institutions particularly colleges and universities not mention pregnancy care centers. You remember remember that whole deal where they had to basically promote abortion services with font. That was big enough for people to read across the room. It's an amazing in egregious thing of saying. Look you can believe whatever you want in the privacy of your own heads but because you exist as a public institution you actually have to go along with our values as a state. That's what virginia has done as well. Virginia's aggressively trying to be a progressive place. It's going to be absolutely essential to preserve these freedoms instead of We sitting this one out is not going to be an option john. I'm glad you brought up the olympics. Because i'm noticing a really kind of interesting cultural story that is coming out of the olympics of female gymnasts from germany. Wearing these full body suits in qualification events. The bbc reported that the athletes and i'm quoting here continued their stand against the sexualization of their sport. And i saw another story to about norwegian beach. Handball didn't even know this. Sport existed but norwegian beach handball players deliberately defying a rule that required them to wear bikini bottoms and they went with shorts instead to make a protest just like that. So i think what strikes me here is that this isn't coming from islamic countries for example. This is coming from western countries. And i don't get the sense that it's for any kind of religious reasons. I wonder if this is going to be a trend. And i wonder whether you think it's a sign of possibly more healthy culture. It's a great question. I think it's a sign of absolutely contradictory and confused culture. And i think we're gonna see more and more of these things look. I applaud the modesty. Here you know But it's in the name of kind of having sexual autonomy in that contrast comes from a another contrast which is hey. You know women be sexually liberated because you've been victimized sexually there's just so many contradictions and the sexual revolution. It's hard to know where to begin. And because there's not a stable source for human dignity in western culture anymore but we still want human dignity we still want value. We still want equality in all of these things you know a couple of weeks ago. I did a breakpoint commentary in which i said. Whoa kness as a christian. Heresy because witness is fighting against discrimination and fighting against oppression. I think it's doing it wrongly. And i'm using the common way people use it but you know what the the idea that oppression is not a normal part of the world should be fought against only owes itself to christianity. That's what's so interesting about this story. The idea that women's value should be protected historically never existed until there's a vision of the image of god and of course in the first chapter of genesis before we know eve's name we're told that she's also made in god's image it's a beautiful grounding human identity For these to adam and eve that are going to be critical in this human story and kind of representative of the rest of the human race. So i think that's what's happening here. I think that sexual broken this creates a context in which particularly women and children are vulnerable and women also have been given that voice to fight back. and so i. I applaud these gymnast. I applaud these norwegian beach handball players. Who i also didn't know was the thing but god bless them have fun. I just i think the only potential for this to have some sort of long term change and not be undermined. Think about for example. How all of women's rights are now at risk in the name of third way. Feminism which says that men can be women. It's so bizarre. We're just in this state of perpetual conflict and contradiction so i i'm not sure that there's longevity here without something more stable to grounded in but god bless them for pushing back on the ways that they're being sexualize d- well. John stonestreet is president of the colson center. And host of the breakpoint podcasts. John thanks so much. Becky about Well sometimes when technology fails man's best friend comes through. Elsa green was enjoying a day on the beach with her family and eagle river michigan until that she realized she'd lost her wedding ring in the sand. A man nearby with a metal detector tried to help out and hunt for the ring but he couldn't do it so green walked to a nearby sheriff's office to ask for help a deputy there said ma'am there's really nothing we can do. But a short time. After that. Sergeant brad pelly showed up with his canine named dog. The dog began searching for the ring and took kim just a few minutes to find it. Sergeant pelly told tv station w. b. u. p. part of the transcript article search so anything when human order his trained to find ways. It's just gonna be a crime scenes whether it be a knife or connor anything with human order like a wedding ring grateful. Elsa green says she plans to bring dog a little ice cream just her way of saying that boy. it's the world and everything. today is. Friday july thirtieth. Thank you for turning to world radio to help. Start your dad. Good morning. I'm nick and myrna brown coming next on the world and everything in it up. French mystery series thrilling american audiences. Here's world's salish weinsberg. There's just something vindicating about watching a heist where the thief gets back at the bad guys other movie franchises like ocean's eleven or the italian job as well as the famous robin hood have capitalized on this story. Trope lupan now streaming. Its second season on. Netflix continues in that tradition. The french ten part mystery series follows. Assan diop played by acclaimed french actor. Omar see a son and his father. Babacar left senegal to create a better life in paris. At first the father and son circumstances are better babacar. Diop babacar gets a job show. Furring hubert pellegrini one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in france. I'm looking for someone personable and someone punctual. That's very important. Couldn't agree more sir. I'm suspicious of people who are late. Thank you babacar. You may go as you leave to my assistant. Put an end to the interviews then. A valuable necklace once owned by french queen. Marie-antoinette goes missing from pellegrini safe. Police and pellegrini accused babacar of stealing it. Sending him to prison overwhelmed with shame. Babacar commits an apparent suicide. Leaving his young son to fend for himself. Twenty five years later. A sun sets out to avenge his father and prove his innocence to do that. He needs to expose the corrupt pellegrini families. I don't know if they lied about it. That could've lied about the rest code. In the chargers gets my father. Twenty five years. I believe my father was a thief. Grew up with that twenty. Five years of enroll doesn't have much moral high ground to stand on. He's spent his life perfecting the art of robbery and fraud. he bases his thieving techniques. On maurice leblanc's famous book series arsene lupin gentleman burglar. The blonde published his first lupan story in nineteen o five sixteen novels and thirty nine. Short stories followed all telling tales of thief known for using his trickery for arsene. Lupin isn't just a book is my hair. My method my assigned diop tells himself he's using his gifts for good as well because don't the rich odor their money to the poor after all but assign fails to recognize how he himself has benefited from the wealth and prosperity of france's upper class even though flashbacks demonstrate how many people who could have helped him instead treated him as just another troublemaking imigran kit to check the windows and assange honest he really just enjoys outsmarting people to no ma'am mr place. He opened a door. Police is the place. Thank you very much need to worry about. I have two cops already standing guard downstairs. You have an alarm system. No that's not. Good madam not at all but now assan wants to use his questionable skill set for something bigger than just fattening his wallet. He wants to win back his estranged wife and son as well as clear his father's name and to him the ends justified. The means okay. What's the new plan. Don't work pelagreeny. Took it out on my own. So i'll do the same interest. Lupan is filmed in french. So the american netflix version is dubbed in english but the quality of the voice acting as well as the fast moving plot quickly make viewers forget. They're watching a dubbed version. One downside the show features frequent language and sometimes the english. Voiceover it's worse. Expletives than the direct french translation in the subtitles and there are obvious problems with assange thieving ways. But those aside it is fun to watch the of disguise allusion and technology operate as he tries to bring down his foe like how he manages to steal a multi-million dollar necklace from the louvre with team of janitors or trades places with an inmate in prison or evades police by ordering well-done burgers with no onions kicked us face now. We can't hear his covenant. Microphone attention all units defeat from the louvre's in the park. No be until he moves understand. I lupan is striking a chord with audiences. It grabbed the second. Most is of any netflix. Original so far this year and became the first french production to hit the us top ten list. At the end of season to net flicks announced. Lupan will return for a third chapter until then we'll have to wonder if the sun diop will ever put his thieving ways behind him and if a learned that more crime even aimed toward the dirty rich doesn't balance the scales of justice. I'm sarah weinsberg Today is friday. July thirtieth good morning. This is the world and everything in it from listener. Supported world radio. I'm ernie brown nick. Eicher time now for your listener feedback and we certainly do have a lot of it to share this month. Many listeners rodas this week after hearing. Dr charles. horton's interview about america's frontline doctors. We will read samples from a few of those many many emails in just a minute but one common criticism that we heard was that we didn't have any kind of response from the organization itself. That's right we did. Not but there's a reason for that and we should have said so during the segment that dr horton did. Try to get in touch with america's frontline doctors and asked to talk with them as part of his reporting. He gave them a week to respond and they did not right. We also heard for many listeners. Who wanted us more directly to address. The doctors claims about things like how drugs chloroquine ivermectin and reports of adverse reactions to the kobe. Vaccines one of the reasons we didn't do that in this segment is that we've carried reporting on these issues at other times we'll link to those reports in today's program. Transcript so if you wanted to that would make it convenient to go back and check those out all right well. It's read some email that is representative of the feedback. We received as i said it was a lot. It was highly negative some of it from medical professionals and all of it by email so we will have to read excerpts for you. I kenneth kirby wrote to say he was disappointed. The piece was more of an editorial commentary about america's frontline doctors and not a new story alan. Shell said he wished we'd mentioned several cases in the past when a vaccine fully approved by the fda had to be pulled from the market due to safety concerns chrome question as he says the over the top panic-inducing push to vaccinate the planet against a virus. That has a very high recovery rate and suggested world has accepted that idea without critique. Rick whitmer took issue with our description of america's frontline doctors as primarily political. He noted that medicine and politics have often become intertwined during the past year. Austin britten wrote to say he thought we'd misrepresented the groups use of the term experimental. He noted that because the technology behind the mr a vaccines has never been used before. It is by definition an experiment. When you said the responses were highly negative and they were but a few were appreciative. David phillips wrote to say it was excellent informed thoughtful and vital reporting and donald thompson of family and preventative medicine doctor in bristol. Tennessee called in with this feedback. Dr horton identifies several red flags about this group that we would be wise to identify when we get our news. A medical group should provide medical advice. Based on evidence it may be difficult to separate evidence from a political discussion and from the obvious emotions associated with illness and death but it is crucial that the wise consumer of information do just this. Well thanks to everyone who provided feedback many indicated. They are longtime listeners and happy listeners. We know this is an area where reasonable people disagree. And we thank you very much for your reasonable and thoughtful disagreement sticking with that same subject but moving on to a different story longtime listener stephan. Ad buick had this to say about another. Covert related story. I want to thank you. For paul butler segment on your july first podcast about lingering post covert side effects i had it and i was on a ventilator for eight days thankfully the lord brought me through and while i'm in remarkably good shape now there are some lingering effects including leg numbness and shooting pains in that same leg. I had thought it. Perhaps it was a result of laying on my back for a month. But your podcast made me think that maybe it is indeed a long term side effect. Thanks to the world and everything in it for making me aware of this possibility but mostly thanks to our lord for his healing hand. Well thank you steffan and we join you and giving thanks to god for your recovery We have time for one more. Call today hi. My name is catherine family. Listens from north west indiana on monday on legal dockets in the discussion with adam sherrington About the supreme court rulings for the year Statistics he mentioned that there was a ninety four percent reversal rate for the ninth circuit. And so that. That was very concerning. I was wondering why that was concerning. Thank you all right. Well catherine we asked mary reicher to give us an explanation to pass along and she told us. When the high court overturned so many rulings from one circuit it suggests the judges in that circuit are deciding cases not on legal principles but on outcome in other words. The judges may be asking themselves. How do i want this case to turn out. And then find justifications after the fact to reach that conclusion instead when judges are making even-handed applications of the law you wouldn't see the supreme court having to overturn the majority of their decisions. That's what she said. We also got an email this month from a listener. Asking about our new podcasts lawless. We previewed back in april and he said he was looking for hearing it. Well the wait is almost over. The first episode airs on september seventeenth and between now and then we have new seasons of legal docket starting on august tenth and listening in on september tenth. It's going to be a busy month around here with lots for you to look forward to and lots of work for us still to do well one final note before we go.

In the death of george. Floyd has pleaded not guilty to violating the civil rights of a teenager in a separate case world. Kristen fluff and reports. Shilton faced judge by video conference. Thursday from the states maximum security prison prosecutors say he used a restraint on then fourteen year old teenager in two thousand seventeen similar to the one he used on george floyd last year. He allegedly held the teen by the throat. Hit him in the head with a flashlight and held his knee on the boy's neck while he was handcuffed. And not resisting. The boy was bleeding from the ear and needed two stitches and three other former officers. Thomas lane j king and to tau were arraigned on civil rights violations. In floyd's death. On tuesday all four pleaded not guilty to those charges. The indictment in the two thousand seventeen case was filed the same day as the one for floyd staff reporting for world. I'm kristen flahavan.

Congress will not be in session during the event due to a plan to recess for yom kippur americans continued to spend at a brisk pace last month despite surging kovic nineteen cases. World's anna joe. Hansen brown has more on that spending held up surprisingly well to the still rising wave of infections. Though much of that spending was done online. Online sales soared five point three percent last month. Some sectors of the economy are still feeling the impact of the delta very end sales at restaurants for example remained flat but retail sales rose a seasonally adjusted zero point seven percent in august from the month before that uptick caught most economists. By surprise. that's the good news. The not so good news. Jobless claims rose last week after falling to a pandemic low the week before about three hundred. Thirty two thousand people filed for unemployment benefits arise of about six percent. That could be a sign that the spread of the delta verion is triggering an uptick in layoffs reporting for world.

This is the world and everything in it. It's friday september seventeenth twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm paul butler and myrna brown in a moment. John stonestreet joins us with this week's culture friday but before we welcome john. We wanna tell you about an exciting opportunity. That's right myrna. In two weeks we're going to record the world and everything in it. Plus world watch in front of a live studio audience at free lutheran bible college and seminary in plymouth minnesota now. There are a limited number of seats available. But if you live in or around the twin cities area we love to. Have you stopped by to meet some of the team. Not only that the good folks at the college and put together a full day of activities for families looking to navigate the media landscape with biblical discernment. We put a lincoln. Today's transcript if you'd like to learn more just come to w. n. g. dot. Org and find our podcast page and then follow the instructions now on to today's culture friday this week the wall street journal released a series of investigative stories on social media giant facebook and instagram that after the journal reviewed internal documents revealing the social media platforms were keenly aware of the mental health challenges. Their products made worse. One internal communication admitted that an instagram steady found. The app made body image issues. Worse for one in three teen girls yet when pressed on their products effects on teen mental health. They downplay that knowledge publicly instead. They frame the discussion around initiatives designed to make users happier about the interactions. Well here's instagram. Ceo atom missouri from earlier. This year on the teenager be podcast. The mental health of our users is something that is incredibly important. It's definitely true that we care about how much people using cigar Overall a good thing that people use it creates value and that if people are using it more that's a good sign but we also want to make sure people feel good about the time that they spend on instagram and so we've tried to invest in a whole bunch of different ideas to make sure that people feel better about the they spend on the button for john. Stonestreet is here once again to help us. Think through this story. Good morning john. Good morning so john. Let's start right there. You know as the mother of two daughters and a mentor to a handful of young women. I've seen first hand the struggles. Girls have with body image. And you know. If i'm honest i remember in my youth. My own feelings of inadequacy and susceptibility to the fear of being left out and apparently instagram knew there. Product made these things worse. Why is this revelation significant. Well it's significant that they knew it and it's significant that there is a an incredible amount of Kind of a gymnastics being attempted here to try to make it. Okay we know that technology like this rewires the brain. We know that a generation that is raised even on internet technology like google failed to develop the kind of thinking that connects causes and effects. Or you know things in their consequences We we know the body image stuff is just the latest. There's all kinds of ways that experiencing life in this way distracts us from the people that are around us Stunts growth perpetuates bad stereotypes. It also delivers a group of influencers. I mean the very fact by the way that we have a group of people that are called influencers. And that's a thing Tells you everything you need to know. But the but it delivers them into an intimacy or false intimacy a one-way intimacy with our sons and daughters. Like nothing else. Could i mean. I remember teeny bop magazines that you'd pass in the supermarket aisle Back in the eighties. Elissa milano and michael j. fox. That was about as close as they got to us That's nothing like the daily influence that these influencers have. I mean the list goes on and on and on it's significant because The the influence here is is is is truly outsized and also let me just put it this way embedded in all this too is a false definition of what it means to be successful. A culture that worships celebrity is a culture that chooses style over substance. it's a culture that chooses posturing over loving and caring All of these things are embedded into the platform itself. Marshall mcluhan said the medium is the message. That's the message coming out of all these mediums. You're not good enough. You're not smart enough. You're always being left out and to have a life of significance you have to be noticed and you have to be liked and not liked and then he sort of real sense not like despite who you are but you actually have to have a little thumbs up clicked on some image or something that you have otherwise. The devastating potential is is that you don't matter what a terrible terrible message. We'll john for years. Social scientists have warned that social media feeds can be addictive companies like facebook snapchat. Tick tock they seem to shrug that off. They've introduced bandaids. It look like they desired to address some of those issues like facebook's program to eliminate likes yet they seem to be ignoring the larger underlying problems. It reminds me of the tobacco hearings in the nineteen nineties. When it came to light that cigarette companies knew for years that their products were bad for smokers yet. They not only downplayed those dangers publicly. They even advertise to youth to try to get them to smoke. What do you think of that comparison. I it's on a back comparison. But i don't think it's nearly enough because when you're talking about cigarettes you're talking about a behavior clearly. What the addiction. To social media feeds is doing is not selling a behavior. It's selling an identity abigail schreier this week. Come in on this. And of course she's the one that has written compellingly about What has become known as rapid onset gender dysphoric in other words. Why is there such an incredible amount of growth in the number of students that are identifying as gender confused or gender dysphoric. And she points out. Social media is a big cause of that because it takes something. That's not normal. Makes it normal. It takes somebody that is to be pitied. It makes them the hero. It takes the definition of success and down to some sort of empathy and then this foam. Oh this constant fear of missing out which is an epidemic disease of young people addicted to social media then kind of creates that i have to participate a have to be involved. We get sold a multitude of identities. And if we're left out where irrelevant in a social media defined world and if we are shared than were relevant and that just kind of feeds into our understanding of who we are as human beings in other words. It's far more than a behavior like smoke. Even a dangerous behaviour like smoking. It's far more than that. It's actually a way of selling identity itself Well republican and democratic senators have now reportedly decided to begin an investigation into what exactly facebook and instagram new. And what they did to try to make things better for teens on their platforms. But do we really need another congressional hearing. That actually helped. Of course my temptation is to immediately say no because when is it ever helped anything but i i actually a little sympathetic to some attempts that happened in the british parliament several years ago to not banned pornography. Although that's the way it was sold but to at least let's set the default in a position that if somebody wants porn they have to actually ask for it. In other words the default is set to close instead of set to open and one wonders. If something like that couldn't be done here but at the end of the day. This is apparent job. It's not anybody else's job. It's the parents job and parents need to actually learn as much as possible and i know it's hard. I'm learning that with my own kids. There's a time you just say. No i in the there is almost nothing helpful about social media and especially these kinds of social media and so the question is and i say this is someone who has decided that twitter is not good for two way communication. So i'm going to basically use it to put something out there. But i'm never going to get into a dialogue because the medium can't handle it and i think that there's certain forms of social media that allow us to stay in touch. Allow us to know each other in deep ways. That's all fine but you have to use social media for what it can do. I'm not sure that instagram or some of these other things To talk actually bring any of this good to the table especially for kids so listen a great question about worldviews. What's wrong with the world. And whose job is it to fix it at a very bad answer. That question is it's always government's job to fix it This is an example where those closest to the problem. This is a catholic principle called subsidiarity. Those closest to the problem are best equipped to deal with it and those closest to these teenagers are the ones best equipped to help them deal with it. That's family not. The state will earlier this year. Instagram announced it wanted to expand its products. Two young kids and not long after more than forty states attorneys general urge facebook to reconsider john given what we're learning from the facebook files report getting kids on instagram earlier. Seems like the wrong direction. I mean this is what has it. The internet done to mommy bloggers. I've this is grown. women. What has the internet done in terms of the johnny knoxville gen-xer mental in though words grown adults can't handle the normal internet It's absolutely insane. It's absolutely insane to give teenagers especially young teenagers. Unaccountable access to the internet per se. Now when you. And that's just because of the things that are predatory looking for them. But when you actually. Then add these mediums. These these specific tools of social media use the internet and in particular sorts of ways that actually reshape our hearts souls and minds and then we give that to young girls in particular. A young men for that matter. It's it literally makes no sense. Future generations will look back at us. With all of this that we know and basically call his child abusers around that and maybe that is why a reason that there needs to be a congressional hearing because there is deep harm being done To teenagers in this world. There's literally nothing good coming this for young teenagers that i can think of. I literally cannot think for the life of me a positive for young teenagers. Maybe not for teenagers and maybe not for the rest of his either john. Stonestreet is president of the colson center and host of the breakpoint podcasts. Thanks john thank you.

Good morning. i'm paul butler and moreno brown coming next on the world and everything in it. Father figures a new christian film made a quiet debut at movie theaters across the country. Last weekend it's from a pair of filmmakers. Probably heard of but as reviewer colin gobble reno found out. It's not their normal narrative. Has your father. Let you down as your stepfather. Let you down show me. The father is the latest offering from the kendrick brothers. They're the guys who brought us a string of christian dramas including facing the giants fireproof and courageous. But show me. The father is their first documentary and it might be my favorite of their movies. The film highlights the importance of fathers by telling the stories of several men whose father figures affected them for good and evil like pro football player. Sherman smith smith played eight seasons in the nfl before starting a coaching career. Then he's worked football players at every level. His father poured out love and encouragement and taught him to work hard and set high goals. It's the same approach. He takes with his players. I love coaching coaching. Because of the relationship that you get to develop the players get coast coach. Sherm was always that that second father figure for me. When i was playing sports and he treated all of his guys like that. I wanna make a difference in the lives of young people the way my father made a difference in my life when he was in the nfl smith began to understand. God was a father who wanted him to think beyond earthly accomplishment. That's the main message he tries to pass on especially to players who didn't have fathers of their own compartmentalized while i'm a dependable accountable responsible football player but i am irresponsible. Father husband you know man doesn't go together doesn't work. The film also tells the story of jim. Daly president focus on the family. His difficulties growing up with an alcoholic. Father and abusive stepfather haunted him. For years i move as my brother. I go through junior high starting highschool. I like sports play football basketball baseball. I find structure in those things. I think sophomore year. We've got a new football coach at our high school coach. Paul moro and he he just commanded respect right from the get-go moreover became daley's father figure and it changed the trajectory of his life. He started inviting me over to his house for dinner. Once kind of my house have tacos. We've got taco tuesday his wife joyce which you know like a thousand tacos for a couple of his guys that show and we just scarf these things down eventually through that year he asked me if i'd like to fellowship of christian athletes camp and i said i don't got the money for that he's said Joyce pay for that at that camp daily came to know christ and started a long journey of healing. He now sees god is a good father that he can depend on the kendrick brothers also share the story of their own father and how his courage in the face of adversity shape. Their lives his love for his family. Inspired stephen kendrick to pursue adoption. God has a hard for the orphans. He cares about them and this whole parallel of adoption began to deepen. My understanding of god is our father. God didn't just create fatherhood. God is a father and he loves you. This is one of the greatest expressions of god's love adoption throughout all these stories. Pastor tony evans provides theological commentary and on the whole. The message is solid. But sometimes i felt the film conflicted. God's divine promise to send jesus with tips for good parenting in the bible the everything every every father is responsible for passing on the blessing. There was the touch of transfer. I am passing. One with god has given me to you. The documentary also might have been stronger. If the kendrick brothers had focused on one of the three stories or broaden their interviews to include more perspective on the importance of fathers for example. We don't really get to hear about the legacy that a good or bad father can leave on a woman's life in spite of these quibbles. The film is worth watching. It's one families can enjoy together and it's likely to provoke good theological discussion. The stories are powerful. And you'll be stunned by some of the ways. God heals restores to me. That some of the best dads in the world that i've ever met had terrible dad's themselves. My own. father was not looking at his own dad. As the example to pass on to us he was reading the scriptures. He was reading books by the great men. He was on his knees asking god to help him. And i'm so grateful that he let go of those tough cards that he'd been dealt and he decided to pass on a new legacy for us kids. But the best part of this film is unapologetic. Focus on jesus that makes sense of course because apart from him. You can't see the father. I'm colleen gabrielle commonly. Today is friday september seventeenth. Good morning. this is the war and everything in it from listener supported radio. I'm earn a dime paul. Bundle over the summer. We heard from several listeners. Wondering when listening in would return well. I'm happy to announce that. Warren smith is back with an all new season of interviews. Last week he talked with theologian and author is guinness. this week. He talks with robert wilga math in the coming weeks. You can listen in on conversations with owen strand caleb kaltenbach claire co well and worlds very own marvin laskey and those are just a few of the guests. Warren has lined up for this season. Trust me you won't wanna miss an episode. We release a new one every friday. So search for listening in wherever you get your podcasts and subscribe all right well moving now from listening to speaking communicating in a foreign language is hard especially of that language is english right and not just because you say tomato and i say tomato. Here's george grant with this month or play. Though it is spoken the world over english is a notoriously difficult language to learn it is filled with peculiarities irregularities auditees and inconsistencies though there certainly are rules for spelling grammar and pronunciation the language is rife with exceptions to those rules and if that word complicated enough the english language features innumerable home phones. These are words that sound the same but have different meanings. For instance there are houma graphs words that sound the same. Inner spelled the same but have different meanings there are hetero graphs words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings. There are multiple times words that sound the same but have more than two different meanings and spellings confusing right and then there are hetero. Nm's these are words that have the same spelling but with different pronunciations and different meanings so for example address is a verb meaning a speech before an audience while and address is a noun meaning a location on a map to advocate is to make a case for another while. An advocate is the supporter of a cause and attribute is a characteristic while to attribute is an acknowledgement credit or ownership. Appropriate is something that is suitable or apt while to appropriate is to set apart. August is something that inspires awe while august is the eighth month of the year. A bass is a fish but a basis low pitched instrument to blast is to know divine favor. Blessed is that a state of graciousness. Abo- is a ribbon on a president or clinton into hair but a bow is a gesture of respect or alternatively it could be the front of a ship a buffet is a self serve meal or the side board upon which that meal is served but to buffet is to batter and strike repeatedly to close is to shut close is nearby to combine is to mix an assimilation combine though is threshing and harvesting machine to come. Pat is to compress compact is something that is small to convict is to find guilty. Convict is someone who has been well so convicted to desert is to abandon. A desert is an arid wasteland to do is to act but dough is the note that precedes ray and follows. T does is an action verb but does are two or more female deer. A dove is a bird. Dove is the past tense of dive. And these are just a few of the abc. And ezra names but you'll find many more all across the whole span of the dictionary entrance and in trance intimate and intimate learned and learned lima and lima object. And object present and present record and record separate and separate tier and tear wind and wind. Heteronomous abound virgil the first century. Roman poet laureate once quipped. Trust not too much to appearances. Perhaps that is apt wisdom for both life and language especially at were surprisingly rich maddeningly unpredictable language. I'm george brand before we go. I'd like to remind you about our standing offer to try out our daily video news for students. It's called world watch. Were offering up to a thousand free trials and the sign up is easy at world. Watch dot news. Look for the orange button in the middle of the screen. It says claim your free thirty day. Trial click it and follow the instructions. There's really zero risk.

It's created for middle to high school students but really parents say the entire family loves it. And paul i love my world watch work. I love working. Of course with you and mary and nick here on the radio side. But what's special to me at worldwide is that i come from commercial television and what we're doing with a biblical worldview and real news is just so rewarding to me personally.

No i made case. Thick lead board game. They kim the. It's friday june eleventh twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm myrna brown. And i'm nick eicher while we spent the last few weeks talking about high quality college students. And this time i'd like to talk about the other side of that coin because i read with interest a piece in the wall street journal by the editor of the publication. First things rusty reno. He began his peace in the journal. With a very provocative sentence as you would expect a good editor to do he. And i quote. I am not inclined to hire a graduate from one of america's elite universities and then he went on to explain the reasons for that and it wasn't simply because of what we hear about most of the time namely the woke students that these elite schools tend to churn out. His point was broader than that it is. He says that the habits these schools tend to foster in students. That is keep your head down if you dissent from the politically correct orthodoxy. That produces sort of moral and spiritual surrender. He wrote quoting here. I don't want to hire a person. Well practiced in remaining silent when it costs something to speak up and then he addressed the flip side of that the student with a chip on his shoulder. The kind of person who has reno writes developed a habit of aggressive counterpunching. That is no more appealing in a young employees than the ruthless of the woke and then finally to attend a school. Where the best advice you receive as a freshman is never to say what you're thinking. Well that is an indication that the institution is not under the leadership of courageous adults and therefore students during their time in these institutions would not have been able to find good role models. That's rusty reno. Writing in the wall street journal. Well it's culture friday. John stonestreet is here. He is president of the colson center and host of the breakpoint podcast john. Good morning. good morning both of you. Well that was a pretty thorough takedown of ivy league schools and john. You've been critical of some christian higher education. And you speak on a lot of campuses d you worry about what we read their reno's indictment of the ivy's that that could be leaking into christian higher to with the short answer is yes a longer answer is what do you mean by christian higher ed because it is a very common thing To find schools that claim a christian heritage basically have no difference in their world view particularly when it's applied in areas Touching sexuality at all. So she allergy and so on I have heard from board members who would not send their children to their schools on which they sit on the board or a board members who have heard from parents that said you know what. I'm okay if my student. Here's these progressive ideals at a state university but i do not want them to hear these progressive ideals at a university that claims that these ideals are somehow christian. That's the confusion that they don't want to actually allow. I think there's also the idea of folk courage. Rusty didn't really mention this in the same way but in a sense you know when he talks about this perpetual chip on the shoulder the counterpunching. Listen there are plenty of institutions They caught a left and punch right. there are plenty of churches right now where they are more than comfortable speaking out on cultural issues as long as they're issues that the culture is already decided the right way to go right. I mean it's not hard to find people outraged by sex trafficking because everybody agrees on that but if you talk about sexual deviancy in terms of homosexuality or same sex marriage not gonna touch it at all and the real problem that we have to deal with is how mean christians are. This is not courage. This is not moral clarity on the issues that are at most at stake right now. I mean i could go on. and on. and on and once they're multitude of problems to address but It makes me more thankful for those institutions. That have been really really clear on the fact that they wanna do higher ed in a christian way and honestly parents need to know. Just how rare that institution as well john. You may have seen this story. It's an update on a religious liberty first amendment controversy out of northern virginia. One of our legal affairs writers steve west reporting for world. He says a judge reinstated a schoolteacher. Who was suspended for offering the following opinion at a school board meeting. This is loudon. County elementary schoolteacher. Tanner cross. It's not my intention to hurt anyone but there's certain truths that we must face when ready. I love all of my students. But i will never lie to them regardless of the consequences. I'm a teacher. But i serve. God i and not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa religion. It's lying to a child. It's abused to child. And it's sinning against our god world reported that the judge found that the board violated crosses free speech and free. Exercise of religion writes the judge ruled. That cross was entitled to first amendment protection because he made his comments in his personal capacity and on a matter of public concern now. I wonder what might happen. The first time that he encounters student dealing with gender dis fauria but increasingly john. Don't you think we're going to see more and more clashes like these now. I've got so many thoughts on this one. I grew up in the county adjacent to loudon county. And let me just tell you what loudon county look like. When i was growing up and of course clearly. I'm so so young so it wasn't that long ago loudon county and the alarm county school board. This is just one story about three in a row. They're working really hard to be the woke his school board in america and of course we know from places like michigan and southern california that they've got some stiff competition but they're working really hard to do it so the fact that this is a county that just yesterday would easily be considered kind of the middle america county and now is on the leading edge of woke. Nece that's something for every schoolteacher in america not to mention every school board member in america to actually take note of the second thing is. What was so intolerable about what tanner cross said. I love my students. Is that the controversial point. I'll never lie to them. Is that the controversial thing that he said. I have a deep faith. Is that a controversial thing to say in other words. Are we really ready to be the nation in which we don't want teachers to believe those three things or live out those three things. That's madness that tells you just how much things have moved the other subtext of this story. Though in it's being under reported right now nick and i think it needs to be proclaimed from the mountaintops again just having grown up there at having some personal connections with the county the church that this teacher attends fully got behind him publicly and vocally the public advocacy of this church and the church members to get behind. This guy is a model of what we have called before here on this podcast the theology of getting fired and i want to publicly affirm what this church has done to support tanner cross and i hope they write a book that every passer in america is now required to read so that they know what to do in the next time it comes to the next county which was rural america. Yesterday is now at the center of the culture wars today. John talking about church leadership perfect segue after more than four decades. Rick warren announced. He is searching for his successor. He was an influence her before. The word became cool. You know driven life. The mega church often at odds with the establishment. So he says. He's looking for the next generation pastor but some are wondering why there isn't already a person who has been mentored and disciple all along you know to just step in kind of like moses and joshua and the fact that there's a search like this it reminds me of my corporate america days you know in executive leadership search. Does this say anything at all about modern church leadership. I don't know i don't know that it does. I mean i think there are plenty of things within the the way the church model goes these days. Particularly the mega church model that you know smacks of corporate america than it does of Anything we would read about in terms of the first century church or you know historical church leadership and i think also just being in a cultural moment that is where christian convictions or less the home field advantage you know sort of thing with parishioners that requires different skills as well You're in trouble. When you know you choose an executive instead of a theologian or executive instead of a pastor pastor instead of an executive and i think that there's plenty of ways to navigate those challenges within church leadership board. I've got no kind of inside visibility on the history of saddleback other than pastor. Warren has done an incredible job for decades now propping up other pastors everywhere including internationally and around america and know we. We've seen this on a number of occasions where you have people aging out. And there's i think the wrong assumption that gee just because it's newer. We need somebody younger. I'm not sure that younger is always better. I think there's a little bit of a chronological snobbery. And making some of these adjustments but it is a complicated thing to do this. You're talking about it and it's not that big in a cultural moment like this. My appeal is just always the pasture. As a pastor i pastor as a theologian the pastor as a biblical teacher the pastor s someone who can integrate that and connected to the cultural moment. That's what can't be sacrificed even if someone is really charismatic or a great public figure. That's not enough for the sort of role that a pasture actually is john. Stonestreet president of the colson center and host of the breakpoint pockets. John thank you thank you. Both additional support comes from the new book. Lament for a father by marvin alaska.

It'll save us from heartbreak. It's the world and everything Today is friday june eleventh. Thank you for turning to world radio to help start your day. good morning. I'm nick junior and myrna brown coming next on the world and everything in it a streaming series that takes liberties with america's past. Here's reviewer colin guerrino. The term underground railroad refers to the row. Slaves took to escape from the south before the civil war. But an amazon's new series by that name the metaphor becomes a literal subterranean transit system. Complete with locomotives loading platforms and dining cars. The series follows one escape slaves journey to freedom along this railroad and it uses her story as a metaphor for the journey. African americans have taken through american history as talk as good of an underground railroad impossible. Indeed yes where do they go. What is it going away and never return very jenkins who won an academy award for his work on moonlight in two thousand sixteen adapted colson whitehead's pulitzer prize winning novel for this ten part series newcomer to someone who plays corre a slave on a georgia plantation when life on the plantation becomes intolerable chorus. Friend convinces her to seek passage on the mysterious railroad the promises to bring her to freedom. It is past time to go. Every's nothing here was pain and suffering the series slips into magical realism when core begins her journey. The setting remains antebellum america. But cora travels through a world that's outside time and her story becomes a fable illuminating. The dangers faced by african americans. The movement the ku klux klan race massacres core experiences. Them all you want to see his nations all about you gotta ride. Look outside as you speed through. And you'll see the true face of american sees is brutality injustice and terror jenkins doesn't pull any punches depicting the horrors of slavery. They're extremely difficult to watch. The first episode shows the brutal whipping burning a slave. It's especially stomach-turning. The same episode includes breath yet disturbing sexual content. Christians need to grapple with the realities of slavery but frequent racial slurs and graphic violence in this series. Make it one that many will want to skip the bleak story. Also portrays america's irredeemable and it holds little hope for racial reconciliation. It suggests the only way forward is for african americans to tell their stories to one another at the beginning of the series. Cora can't even speak for herself but by the end she finds the strength to tell her truth. Even so it's hard to see how she saved either physically or spiritually. You've done all this. You came all this way on the railroad banned. All those people's most disturbing the shows view of christianity throughout the series only villains quote from scripture plantation owner recites paul's instruction for slave to obey their masters of vicious woman who hates core reads the psalms allowed to her is this a critique of those who misuse christianity to justify evil or is it a critique of christianity itself toward the end. Cora finds herself sitting on a black church but they only discuss civic issues and the building is devoid of crosses shouldn't shouldn't exist. If there's any justice in the world voice very foundations are murder and cruelty it wouldn't exist but here. We are faithful christians black and white lead in the historical abolitionist movement. But they are conspicuously. Absent in this fable. The creators seem to believe that religion can't solve. The problems of racial injustice. Jenkins tries to give this desperate tale a sense of hope through stunning visual storytelling. In his use of light he shows a world. that's dark the luminous elegant yet the base dazzling sinister lovely and terrible all at the same time but only christianity can make sense of life in a good but fallen world and while telling our truth might foster some understanding. It pales in comparison to the change brought by the gospel of jesus when faithfully told. I'm calling gabrielle. Now today is friday june eleventh. Good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm a brown and i'm nick. Eicher will myrna. You put together a really nice tv feature for today's world watch thank you. I really liked it. It's about some young men with some remarkable singing talent and we will post a link in today's program. Transcript for you to go view it but we also thought know. Let's share it on today's podcast. Absolutely it's a good way to end the week win. Lawmakers in north carolina opened their legislative session in january three immaculately dressed tunes. Join them we welcome to three heath while those to the senate chamber and appreciate your participation in the opening ceremony rose can use see twenty year old nicholas and his eighteen year old identical twin brothers christian and clayton of come a long way. Since they're barstools singing days in their mama's kitchen it was actually before wearing kindergarten. She was just a pastor's wife and she. God what am i supposed to do. I've got these three crazy kids with nonstop energy. How do i corral this. My husband's off saving the world and he said start with them nicholas still remembers his mother encouraging them to come along with her to the tune of her favourite him and she doesn't play the piano so everything was cappella and so we did a lotta. They were making creating perfect. Three part harmonies even learning lyrics. She wanted the words that were learning to sticking our heads when we were older and going through trials you here like twinkle twinkle little star. Mary had a little when you were little. And then you hear those every once in a while that'll get stuck in your head when you're older. She wanted to do that with us. But with songs had good strong christian words so we could never get away from our faith in god. Their love for singing endured literally and sibling rivalry. It even survived puberty. A lot of people were worried for us. We had a lot of interviews and stuff and he'd be like. How are you guys going to do this. When your voices changing we were like well. No but our voices state. They've changed a little bit but stayed pretty pretty high. In fact that pure distinct has propelled the tree known as the three heap brothers to the top of one of christian music's oldest john. Everybody wondering what's going to happen. Generation generation last year. The thomas field north carolina residents were named southern gospels. Favorite new artists nicholas christian and clayton taking advantage of their growing platform. I'll give you a great example of one of our biggest ministries is before covid. We had the opportunity to go to public high schools and so we went to over forty public high schools to sing fifteen thousand public high school students and we got. We couldn't pray we couldn't really give our testimony. We could seen all about jesus to those kids. One of the students ask for prayer. The day we went and sang at his school. He got taken out of his home by child services for child abuse by his own parents. So we have. The song called smelled. Smoke is so it talks about the three hebrew boys who were in the fire and they came out of the fire in the bible says they didn't smell like smoke. We told them the bible and said listen. I don't know what you're going to. I don't know what's going on in your life but no matter what the problem you can come out of those fires and you don't even have to smell like smoke and smell the smoke wall in two thousand twenty. The dark haired siblings recorded another song. This one inspired by choice.

Hope he enjoys is program. good morning. Supreme court declines to get involved in the texas abortion law for now we'll talk about an important milestone in the pro-life battle that's ahead on culture friday today with john stonestreet also faith on the basketball court. We will review two books and a documentary about players and coaches who follow christ an alkaloid tambo born with a disability and a will to overcome obstacles and to change the world fast chosen but god had bigger plans to me. It's friday september third. This is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm myrna brown. Nick eicher news is next of kin. Covington resident biden on thursday blasted the supreme court's decision not to block a new texas law that bars abortions after a heartbeat is detected in a statement. He said his administration will launch a quote whole of government efforts to respond to this decision and look at what steps the federal government can take to ensure that women in texas have access to safe and legal abortions and press secretary. Jen psaki told reporters. It's extreme texas law. Blatantly violates the constitutional rate established under roe v wade and upheld as precedent for nearly half a century. It's it will significantly impair women's access to the healthcare they need but supporters of the law say healthcare saves lives and abortion does not fit that description. The court voted five to four to deny an emergency appeal from abortion rights groups ruling that they did not provide sufficient justification for blocking the law. Jim graham of texas right to life celebrated the laws legal survival. He said today marks a new era and the pro-life world and he added quote. Texas can protect pre-born babies from abortion who have detectable heartbeats. No other state has accomplished this. The remnants of hurricane ida killed at least forty five people in northeastern states wednesday and thursday. The storm is now carved a path of destruction from the louisiana coast. All the way to the big apple. We actually did get an unprecedented amount of rain. We had three inches in one hour nassau. County new york's county executive laura current her there. The rain submerged subway tracks. The city and floodwaters ravaged homes throughout the region in pennsylvania. Ems director jason bulbs described high water. Rescues in suburban philadelphia because the river borders were coming up so high that the first floor level spaces with getting taken over by waters. We were taking people out of the second floor even addicts of their homes. At least twenty. Three people died in new jersey. Thirteen people perished in new york city. Eleven of them in flooded basement. Apartments at least five people died in pennsylvania. One of them killed by a falling tree. Although ida had lost most of its powerful winds the storm kept it strong rainy core that then merged with a wet and strengthening non tropical storm front triggering. An extreme rain event in the northeast. A day after the top american military commander said. Us forces might coordinate with the taliban on strikes against isis. The british government has signaled a willingness to work with the taliban foreign secretary. Dominic grab we will not be recognizing the taliban but we do see the need to be able to have direct engagement otherwise we can't provide messages. We call listen to the response robert there and a press conference in cutter officials. They are playing a key role in facilitating communications between the taleban. In the west and qatari. Foreign minister shaykh mohammad said thursday that there is no clear indication when the kabul airport will again be fully operational has said it will allow any remaining american citizens to fly out of whether the extremist group will keep its word and weather. American citizens in afghanistan will trust it to do so remains to be seen but the united states is now heavily dependent on the taliban to evacuate. Us citizens left behind. Jobless claims have fallen to another pandemic low has enhanced unemployment benefits. Come to an end. World's anna johannesen brown has more. The labor department says unemployment claims fell last week by fourteen thousand to three hundred forty thousand. That's the best mark since the pandemic took hold but employers. Say they're still having a tough time. Filling open positions though not as tough as in recent months when job opening set new records. Many experts say so called enhanced unemployment played a big role in the worker shortage with the extra weekly federal check. Some unemployed workers found that they took in just as much or more from jobless aid than they would have if they were working. Twenty five states ended those extra benefits early but they are now ending in the other half of the nation as well. The enhanced unemployment program will expire nationwide on monday reporting for world. I'm ana johannesen brown a colorado grand jury this week criminally charged three police officers and to fire department responders in the death of a black man in two thousand nineteen colorado attorney general phill wiser announced the charges each of the five defendants face one count of manslaughter in one town of criminally negligent homicide. Two of the officers also face assault charges twenty-three-year-old. Elisha mclean died after officers. Put him in. A chokehold and paramedics injected him with a sedative. According to the indictment police responding to a nine one one call about a suspicious person. Confronted mclean in august of twenty nineteen. It happened in aurora colorado. As he walked home from grocery store the encounter then escalated with officers stating mclean reached for one of their guns and the three of them restrained him. The indictment said the paramedics who arrived miscalculated. The appropriate dose of a powerful sedative and gave him too much he soon lost consciousness and later died at the hospital. I'm cathy covington and straight ahead celebrating. A pro-life win in texas loss getting to know listeners. This is the world and everything in it. it's friday september third twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm ernie brown. Nick anchor culture friday. Like oh welcome. Now john stonestreet the president of the colson center and host of the break. Point podcast john. Good morning good morning. Well let's talk about the texas law that took effect on wednesday that has the effect of banning most abortions in the state in a legally unique way Some pro-abortion commentators noted that wednesday september first twenty twenty one marked the first day since january. Twenty third nineteen seventy-three that abortion was illegal. Somewhere in america. That's a big cultural signpost. What are your thoughts today. Well i think it's great news. I think it's great news that the court is allowing a state to make these decisions. I mean we have seen state restrictions on abortion stand and we have seen them be struck down What is different. Is i think there was kind of this gut level. Feel that it had to do with the overall number of abortions and this is kind of the first example we have that maybe it's not about the sheer number of abortions. It's going to be made illegal. A lot of the restrictions that have stood were largely irrelevant. This one's very relevant in terms of the number of actual children that'll be saved so What great news. The other thing that it underscores is just Something that we've said before here and that is even if roe v wade is somehow overturned holistically by this court. The fight is going to go back to the state so Ending roe v. Wade is a goal of the movement. It's not the goal of the movement. it is a great sign if roe v wade is made To be a matter in the dust bin of history but it doesn't end are calling to defend innocent human life especially when you talk about How abortion has changed since nineteen seventy-three Two more chemical abortion and all the other ways that human life is under threat. So good news It points to a potentially good things ahead and we'll see where it goes from here. All right well let me get you to comment a bit on the public relations piece of this. I mentioned that this law is unique. One where the state is not doing the enforcement. It's relying on private parties to sue to to go after the abortionist or the abortion business. That's the enforcement mechanism here. Not a prosecutor for example so the abortion industry and abortion advocacy groups coming back and saying this vigilante or bounty hunter kind of stuff. What do you think about the messaging here. Well you can never count on pro-abortion is to say anything remotely accurate to. What is actually happening. You know they flat out lie about the place of abortion planned. Parenthood's budget Or at least in terms of their business plan they flat out lie about whether or not there's body parts actually being sold and marketed. There's nothing you can count on in terms of media coverage of this to tell you the truth This is a similar approach to how Prostitution has been best dealt with in other words. let's go after the quote unquote the owner of the business and seeing this as a business that promotes something so evil Like abortion then go after the providers. I think that makes a lotta sense. Many pro-lifers don't wanna see women be penalized. They don't want to see women who are in difficult situations be thrown in prison for making a decision that they feel like they have to make. I think it's going to be more complicated. The more this goes and so but this is great for step and a great way to do it. All right we'll switching gears here. John the bathroom wars just got a tad more interesting hobby lobby was found to have violated the human rights act for barring transgender employees. From using a restroom of the employee's choosing Mary jackson reporting for world wrote that nearly decade long legal dispute between hobby lobby and a transgender employees. Over women's restroom access came to a close with an illinois appeals court ordering the company to pay two hundred twenty thousand dollars fees for causing emotional distress. She goes on. The ruling could become a new norm for businesses and more than twenty states with non-discrimination statutes for employment and public accommodations. You know what struck me about this story. John is that this particular hobby lobby had installed a unisex bathroom and that was not an acceptable compromise. I'm just not seeing any room here for that for compromise. There's not any room here for any sort of compromise and that includes schools. We had that case a decade ago here in colorado springs where a local public school had made that sort of Adjustment allowing a elementary students to use the restroom that was reserved for teachers was single use. And that wasn't enough for the parents who said that it's still isolated or ostracize their their child. It's never been about the bathroom just like it's never been about the cake. It's it's been about social approval in the full recognition that there's nothing different And i i know this is something that many teachers are facing. I've had conversations heading into this year of teachers in virginia. Who are facing a A school district trying to align themselves with this law. That virginia passed on this issue and Basically what will says. Is you have to do anything that the student demands in other words. You can try this but at the student isn't comfortable then you just have to keep changing. And that's basically what they should have said is that you have to do whatever the student demands which brings up the question in my mind if a student can demand access to a bathroom reserved for people of the opposite biological sex based on sexual identity. Why can't they actually make that same demand based on sexual desire or sexual attraction in other words if identity is a deeper category than attraction you would think they'd have to allow that as well and I i think that Some of us remembered our gaze of junior high enough to know that. That's going to be a real thing In one way or another but this has never been about privacy or safety in the bathroom when it's been about as is a recognition that The language one uses to call themselves can rearrange reality in order to change. What is true and That's that's the situation here. I think well john. You tweeted about the term deconstruction and question christian leaders advancing the idea of deconstruction. Being a good part of faith now growing up in the south at least twice a year we had spring revival and youth revival week long times of nightly gatherings to recommit a time for corporate repentance and restoration john in your tweet you ask well why not just call it reform so is this semantics or is d- construction a totally different thing to be avoided at all cost. Yeah it was. An interesting conversation sparked quite a debate on my facebook page and i and i just wanna be clear. I was not actually asking whether deconstruction itself as a word should be abandoned because deconstruction does describe something very real every time that i have seen deconstruction used particularly by those who are doing the deconstructing it has ended in a walking away from the faith. It's ended in neither a heterodox or maybe all out embrace of apostasy. My question was different. My question had to do with seeing more and more christian leaders. Who would i claim to be christian and who who are seeing this trend of questioning among students in particular but also just millennials especially but also others in christian fold coming going through this kind of self reflection doubt process and encouraging the process of deconstruction in a prescriptive sense and. I just think it's really unwise. Because deconstruction itself has to do with going after foundations not going after perfume issues. Deconstruction is about tearing down. There's nothing in deconstruction about building up and So i guess. I was just confused by so many christian thought leaders are actually prescribing deconstruction. Is some sort of good thing. It seems unwise. It doesn't seem like a word or a concept that is actually Consistent with any christian worldview and let me just be clear Christian worldview is very open to doubt. It's very open to questioning. It's very open to to having hard questions for god. Read the book of job. Read the book of psalms. Israel's hymn book is full of times. When david and the sons of cora in moses another authors of the psalms are going god why god what. I don't understand this. You say this in your word and this doesn't so the idea of doubting the idea of questioning the idea of making sure that what you inherited from your family. What you grew up with actually is in line with what's true completely valid. I just don't know why we would call it deconstruction or encourage what we know to be deconstruction as a valid method to pursue in order to get past these doubts.

In new south wales recently had to find a different way to honor a beloved relative. Ben jackson's aunt. Debbie lived two hundred fifty miles away from him and amid strict. Kovic nineteen lockdowns in australia. He was not allowed to visit her even as she was rapidly. Losing her battle with cancer to make matters worse after she died. Jackson couldn't even travel to her funeral so we had to find a different way to pay tribute tour. Jackson loaded the bed of his truck with feed and carefully dumped it in a very specific pattern then he sent a drone mounted camera into the sky and the video footage captured what happened next hundreds of sheep trotting into the field and stopping to eat or jackson had dropped the feed in the shape of a gigantic heart. His video played at his aunt's funeral. Living work of art. It's the world and everything. Today is friday september third. Thank you for turning to radio to help start your day. Good morning i'm earn. Brown and conquer will coming next on the world and everything in it faith on the floor back in. May the women's basketball hall of fame honored its latest round of inductees the list included wnba player and announcer to make a catching who happens to be an outspoken christian. That got reviewer. Emily whitten to thinking about basketball stories. That point us to christ. Great basketball stories aren't hard to find these days from. Espn's thirty for thirty series to last year's biopic of michael jordan. The last dance remember speed. Michael jordan issues speaks to audiences. Can't seem to get enough of slow slam dunks heartfelt interviews and locker room antics. Unfortunately it's hard to find christian role models in the sport hard but not impossible and today. I'm thankful to recommend three. I coach john moseley. He's featured in last chance. You basketball. An eight episode documentary that debuted last march on net flicks mostly serves as head basketball coach at east los angeles college. You win the game show. Welcome to east los angeles college. Huskies basketball mostly coaches at the junior college level and that means many of his players hope to get a division one scholarship before whatever reason they didn't make the leap joe hampton whose knee injury led to too much downtime and eventually prison for drug related offense was supposed to be in a position to help my family a long time ago in a and i'm here with a bit of being a lot of things. The room coach moseley says the young men in his program are often surrounded by drugs poverty and violence and he understands that situation because that's his background to grew up in south central the majority of the kids that i deal with. They don't have but one door they make a mistake. That doors closed last chance. You basketball isn't a christian production and the players constant use foul language earns it a tv mature rating. That said coach moseley makes the series worth watching for mature christian adults and teens. The film shows him teaching sunday school on praying for his players. Joola we pray mugabe. We prayed it'd be a better person. Or we traded you get the glory melodies and in the end you glorified you send us. We also see moseley's christian faith at work on the court especially as he challenges his players to become all that god wants them to be and be happy and not hold people accountable where you won't because all i'm gonna do all i want is for you to get what you came to get. Mostly isn't perfect and not everyone will appreciate his methods. He often his cool and can sometimes manipulate his players. But with the help of assistant coaches and advisors something extraordinary happens players began to achieve far more than they ever thought. Possible on and off the court. In terms of plot the series builds toward end of season play-offs the huskies finer skills and teamwork tested as action. On the court takes center stage. Viewers can expect a surprising twist at the end but moseley never takes his eyes off the real goal african american young men. This is the only way out. There's no doors this bust open a door and the everybody this little no light. You close the door and i had some left. You don't have to be a basketball lover to appreciate the way coach. Moseley practically and sacrificial loves his players and the surprising ways. They respond to that fatherly love. My second recommendation is a basketball story with cleaner. Language to a catching autobiography catching published it. Back in two thousand sixteen with the help of ken peterson. It's titled catch a star shining through adversity to become a champion. You might think catching just stuck her name on the book cover after all she was a real baller a ten time all star five time defensive player winner four olympic gold medals and she remains the wnba all time leader in steals teammate. Dawn staley described her. This way and hall of fame. Retrospective catch was a uber. She was the best teammate. Anyone can ask for her presence on the floor is unmatched but to make catching also epitomizes. The best kind of student athlete. She loved to read and express herself in journals growing up. The book contains quite a few of her original poems. And those simple lines belie a deep thoughtfulness sensitivity not makes her an exceptional role model for young girls for instance teams will likely relate to her feelings of isolation and failure. Early on fellow. Classmates called catching slow because of her partial hearing loss and speech impediment but catching found her footing on the basketball court and later learned to see guys hand in that success. Through the help of her. Pastor tony evans. Here's how catching is described herself in hall of fame induction speech an awkward lanky introverted tomboy born with a hearing disability a speech impediment and a will to overcome obstacles dream bid and to change the world basketball chose god had bigger plans to me. Finally young boys in their parents and grandparents may wanna check out an excellent twenty twenty biography of steph curry. Here's a youtube clip of a game. Winning shot this may steph one more time for the advantage in this first of his epic athletes biographies journalist dan wetzel teams. Up with illustrator. Zeke pain for clear. Well written look at curry's rise to basketball fame. Wetzel focuses on curry's basketball journey. But he doesn't add it out curry's christian faith opinion even ends the book withdrawing curry pointing upwards and thankfulness to god. It's a visual reminder of curry's faith which he often speaks about publicly. here's his two thousand fifteen most valuable player acceptance speech. This is a tremendous honor You know first and foremost to thank my lord savior. Jesus christ for blessed with the talent to play this game. I can't say it enough. How important you know my favors to to how how play the game and who. I am so i'm just. I'm just blessed and i'm thankful for for where i am as a mom with young basketball fans. I'm thankful for these three christian voices. They point me and my kids back to what really matters both now and when the final buzzer sounds. I'm emily. Today is friday september third. Good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm nick eicher and myrna brown coming up next ask. The editor are editor in chief. Modern alaska is currently a writing assignment. So paul butler. Our executive producer is standing in an answering a question about the way we start every program. The last family reunion. I attended before coverted included a table with name tags. The first thing everyone did is they arrived. Was fill out a large sticker with a sharpie marker. Now some names were in all caps mine. A few supported cursive inspired ladders with tales. Those with longer names ran out of room as their letters got closer and closer to the edge of the sticker a few people underlying their name or added little sketches and flourishes and each name tag became a snapshot of the wearer every episode of the world. And everything in it starts with what we call a pre roll as one of our listeners. Introduces the program. It's kind of like a name tag about a year ago. A fellow podcast told me he thought it was an odd way to start the program. He said it was unpolished and unprofessional and he asked me. So why do you do it. Well in the biz. We call it listener engagement. Since we're not alive radio program it's challenging to find ways to interact with you so our pre rolls are one way you can. Positively participate with the podcast. It makes it a two way communication. Frankly it's one of my favorite parts of the program. As every morning. I get to meet one or more of our listeners. While i'm out walking the dog today's pre roll was from a texas eighth grader. Who listens every morning before school and in case you missed it others. This week included a retired military officer. A sixth grade home schooler a private music instructor and a retired schoolteacher as i think back on the mini pre rolls over the years. I'm amazed at the diversity of our audience. Doctors missionaries salesman stay at home. Moms farmers students bus drivers college professors pastors computer technicians government officials. And that's just the start and that doesn't even begin to touch. On the demographic diversity men and women children and senior citizens married unmarried some who can donate thousands of dollars while other sacrificial e give just a few there listeners who didn't finish high school while others hold multiple. Phd's some family send their kids to public school while others go to christian schooler. Educate them at home. Some have nine or more kids while others long for one we've had pre roll representing most. Us dates plus many countries around the world. I'll admit i find myself trying to picture. What pre rollers. Look like as i listen. I wish i could get to know them more. What their favorite book of the bible might be how god has been faithful to them. What church attend. I get excited as i begin to think. About all the denominations represented baptist methodist presbyterians lutherans episcopalians pentecostals congregational lists and folks from scores of other independent or nondenominational churches. I'm humbled at how we come together to listen to this program. What back to our pre rolls. We've recently discovered another reason to do them. And it's more than just listener engagement last week. We featured a military mom whose son was serving in afghanistan of a united states marine. It'll be no when we scheduled it that it would end up being the same day of the suicide attack. That killed thirteen soldiers outside the kabul airport. Many listeners emailed us saying they were praying for her and her son and hoped for an update. That's amazing to me listeners. Literally around the world suddenly praying for someone. They'd never met hoping that everything was okay and working out for god's glory when we checked in with her later she told us. Her son was unharmed. That she marveled at god's timing. She said she thought her son may have been the most prayed for soldier that day. And she couldn't wait to tell him of god's providence through such a unassuming part of our program you see god even uses a fifteen second podcast pre roll for his purpose as a christian who listens to this program. You're not just an audience member your family. We're brothers and sisters in christ so keep those audio name tags coming. Let us know who you are and where you're from and how we're related. There are instructions on the website. If you wanna do so and i invite you to join me in marveling every morning at the amazing diversity of the body of christ. Oh and let's keep watching for his purposes in and through each one of us while we do. So i'm paul butler well. It's time now to thank our team. Kayla bailey joel bells. Anna hansen brown can't covington kristen. Flab katie me. Kim henderson o'neill's ao. He kerry mary record. Sarah weinsberg grace. Snell cal thomas and whitney williams johnny franklin and carl pete's our audio engineers who stay up late to get the program to you early lee jones managing editor palm butler is executive producer and marvin olesky is editor in chief. And you thank you because your giving makes possible independent christian journalism you have multiplied. Oh lord my god you're wondrous deeds and thoughts toward us. None can compare with you. I will proclaim and taliban them yet. They are more than can be told lord willing. We'll meet you back here on monday. Go now in grayson piece.

The labor department reported thursday that jobless claims dropped to three hundred eighty five thousand. That's down twenty thousand from the week before the number of weekly applications for unemployment aid which generally reflects the pace of layoffs has fallen steadily all year but employers are still posting a record number of available jobs. Many say they still can't find enough workers to fill job posts. At least twenty five states have announced plans to cut off immediately federal aid as early as next week that includes so-called enhanced unemployment which provides an extra three hundred dollars per week in federal money on top of state benefits reporting for world.

Run as the country's leader that just hours after opposition leader european and his main coalition partner naphtali bennett declared that they had reached a deal to form a new government. The coalition is very diverse consisting of eight parties from across the political spectrum but professor gideon rahat with hebrew university says its members have one thing in common a desire to oust netanyahu from office the only russell nod of this coalition is a coalition of forces alliance includes hardliners previously aligned with netanyahu as well as left of centre parties and even an arab faction the coalition could end two years of political limbo and israel four elections over that time have ended in deadlock the 2021 summer olympics in tokyo or now less than fifty days away but officials are facing an uphill climb as they prepare for the games with thousands of volunteers. Staffers backing out. World's kristen flovent has that story. The international olympic committee expects at least eighty percent of athletes and residents of the olympic village to be vaccinated against covid nineteen but only two to three percent of japanese residents are fully vaccinated for that reason. Many volunteer staffers are growing increasingly uneasy about taking part in the games about ten thousand of ab thousand unpaid volunteers for the summer. Olympics and paralympics have told organizers. They've decided not to participate. Organizers said the loss would not affect operations. The japanese government has resisted calls by some to delay the summer olympics once again amid the slow roll out of vaccines in japan. Officials postponed the games last year. Due to the pandemic summer olympics are now set to begin on july twenty third reporting for world. I'm kristen flahavan. And i'm covington straight ahead questions from non-christians. Plus your listener feedback. This is the world and everything in a It's friday june fourth. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm ernie brown. And i'm nick eicher. Its culture friday. Johnstone street is here. He's president of the colson center and host of the breakpoint podcast. Good morning john. Good morning neck. Good morning myrna which we had a great couple weeks on culture friday with student questions from world journalism institute and yet in all of that we managed only to process four of them and we had twenty five students. Total so We could go on a wild trying to answer all of them. So what. I did john Was it looked through everything else. They submitted trying to discern some overall themes and here is a common thread that i noticed our students clearly recognize the cultural hostility. All around them whether it's lgbt issues or life issues or Of ethnic conflict they are hungry to know how specifically and how personally to engage on these issues and to the point they want to know how to engage quote unquote the other side. They're eager to be able to bridge the differences and speak intelligently. But also with compassion. And i think this is really in your wheelhouse. John so take the next few minutes and just talk a little bit about what you do to prepare to engage culturally so to put it in the form of a question. What do you do to make yourself ready to give a genuinely christian answer to the questions. That non christians are asking why. I think there's a lot of things that you can do to prepare yourself to. Has the scripture puts it really clear answer for the whole. That's within you. And i think one of the things you find throughout cultural moments that transcends human history is that when people see hope they ask about it because hope is not something that transcends kind of me your feelings for very many people when people really see it it's inherently attractive to them. I think especially at a time like ours. When so much is up in the air culturally Whether you know how we should behave or even who we are so number one is live a life of hope so people ask number two is be willing to learn what you don't know so that you know that you don't know and then you can go figure it out I think another thing is learning to listen. You know there was a bumper sticker. That i always thought was really profound. Which is of. Jesus is the answer. What's the question and Now we might think that everyone kind of shares the same existential questions. And i think at some level to be human. Is the ask these questions. It's to have eternity in our hearts as the author of ecclesiastical put it but not everyone is aware of where the dole aac is coming from. Not everyone has the same sort of lifestyle or relationships. Were these nagging things rise to the surface so to assume that people wanna know about this or that or the other is not to listen and that's almost always the case. Think about it. You're much more likely to listen to anyone. If you think they're listening to you. i also think another step in this Being ready to answer the questions and non-christians are raising. I really appreciated how the question was asked which is how do you make yourself ready to give a genuinely christian answer to the questions. Non christians raising the best way to give genuine christian answered the questions and non-christians raising is not to believe. The cultural line that every opinion counts. Some opinions are misinformed. Some opinions are dumb. If you think why. I don't think jesus would have never done anything like that. But you've actually never looked at what jesus said. You never studied. It entrusted the teachers and the preachers in the evangelist. That have been gifted by god. Call to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. Then don't try to wade out and make stuff up. And i think too often christians not willing to do. The work are much quicker to just make stuff up. Well i do want to single out. One question of from our class philosopher nick jensen and not just because he has a strong name. But nick wants to know john. What is your favorite argument for god's existence that you've encountered in the study of apologetic. So there you go from nick. Asking for nick my favorite. Yes my favorite. Not the one. I think is most compelling but good news. I think they're both the same in my book In i always recommend that young people buy a copy of blaise. Pascal house collection of writings has called which means thoughts and french. Pasco was a brilliant mathematician. A skeptic who in his kinda late twenties became a believer died in his mid thirties. What he does in that book and so many of those thoughts is the most compelling argument for god's existence and all sum it up this way atheists have to believe that humans are animals. New agers or hindus have to believe that humans are actually divine. What's more true. Well neither what christians believe is that were made in the image of god but we act like animals That explains things. And that's the most compelling argument i know about god's existence is An argument from the human condition. How do we explain the glory and the garbage of the human condition. What explanation holds those together. And i think not. And i'm not just talking about the intrinsic designed the brilliance of the design of the of the mind or you know various ways that biological parts of us or whatever. I'm actually just talking about What best explains why. Humans have a moral intuition why we violate that moral intuition. Why we at times can do unbelievable acts of creativity and also do really stupid things. What explains all of that. Christianity gets the human condition. Right the christian god is an explanation for the human condition that no other worldview approaches john. Many of our wgn students go to faith based schools that have been pulled into a big lawsuit filed by a group of lgbt students. The lawsuit challenges the right of the department of education. To grant exemptions to christian colleges schools like westmont college where student addie mikhailian attends and he says there have been campus wide conversations about gender sexuality school policy and the actions of administrators and at the end of last semester. She says several students staged protests that featured posters depicting rainbow crosses. So gianetti has two questions for you. How should she engage this issue with compassion but without compromising biblical truth and as a student how does she hold administrators accountable to do the right thing. Well man at asking a very very difficult question. And i think it's going to be far more challenging for many christians right now. We know that chris get challenged on university campuses at our public schools that are have a secular history or who long ago abandoned christian roots. Look i think you can't assume that your fellow christian students at that university and you can't assume that they have the categories of thought that are necessary to believe what the bible teaches about sexuality. Here's what i mean. Our culture has been running away not from a christian moral vision about sex but a christian onto logical understanding of sex oncology the essence of being in other words. What we have gone through is not our culture saying oh you used to say that was a morally wrong behavior. I'm saying it's morally okay. The culture has embraced a fundamentally different understanding of what it means to be human the nature of reality the role of design in the universe and so many students if they have taken seriously. The moral claims of the bible on their sexual behavior have not taken seriously the onto logical claims of the bible on their sexual identity and other words they miss god's created intent for who they are as human persons. So i think you gotta start there. I think you've got to actually ask questions. Like look if god is revealed to us in what he has made. What do our bodies revealed to us about. God and what he wants because really in order to embrace the new understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity as a christian. Not only. do you have to say that the body is irrelevant to who we are as human persons but that sometimes the body actually gets it wrong and that's a statement not about the fall. That's a statement about god's creation and so that's a way to do it and i think a. How do you hold administrators accountable. I think there's a couple of ways you can do that. You do it with with respect but you actually do it. You actually go and you ask questions. You actually go. And point out flagrant violations of god's word you ask them why they think the way they do you learn how to make the argument on sexual issues but be courageous. You're going to face a lot of opposition. She might actually face more opposition than if she were on a secular college campus because unfortunately That's what we see too many christian college campuses and of course that is a real shame but it's also something that parents need to know. Be courageous john. Stonestreet is president of the colson center. And host of the breakpoint podcast. We'll john. I am always energized by student questions.

A librarian ireland recently received a book that someone checked out years earlier. A copy of a book titled the hedge and the horse now. The monaghan town library did away with all late. Fees back in two thousand nineteen and good thing too because the borrower of this particular book would have owed roughly two thousand dollars in fines. Wow pretty steep but You know the library patron did check the title out in nineteen fifty seven january eleventh nineteen fifty seven to be exact. Interestingly a library notice on the inside of the book stated and i'm quoting here borrowers must report to the local librarian all cases of infectious disease occurring in their homes while library books are in their possession. A bit of a foreshadowing of cova. Don't you think no it's the world and everything. Today is friday june fourth. Thank you for turning to world radio to help start your day. Good morning nick. And i'm ernie brown coming next on the world and everything in it a trip to the movies now. If you're like most of us you haven't been to a theater in over a year and if you're ready to get back in the saddle reviewer sharon burger as a recommendation. It's a rare girl who hasn't dreamed of having her own. Horse and galloping off on flung adventures spirit untamed will transport those girls and their parents to a fun frontier where the bad guys are bad but not creepy and the good guys are gal fearless for thunell be brave let courage me and the pg film from dreamworks animation opens in theaters today. The sweet spot of girl loves horse combined with genuine friendships and loving family members who aren't perfect and projects those upbeat over messages about being fearless and never giving up it. Even shows that doing your homework pays off. I know living with grandpa isn't easy being a prescott is not always having what you want with doing. What's best for the family. Come down from there and finish your math lesson in an early scene. Twelve year old lucky prescott heads from the big city to the western frontier. She's traveling with her aunt. Cora spend the summer with her father when she was just a baby. He sent her to live with relatives after her mom died. While performing acrobatic says a rodeo stunt rider wasn't easy for him after your mom died something. Broken your father and he can lift me. Sweetheart was alone and wilderness with a baby. He did what he thought. Well what we all thought was best and the train. West lucky looks out the window and sees a wild mustang heard. She's instantly enthralled you do have when she meets him again later she names him spirit but her dad is afraid of her going anywhere near the wild stallion. He doesn't want her to get hurt like her mom did. You can probably guess what happens. Next lucky can't resist the horse in cautiously tries to gain his trust that is portrayed in comical moments with tangle like dance backward and forward between horse and girl abigail improved to young horse loving gals with spunk and personality themselves. Quickly befriends lucky. They encourage her to ride spirit when she finally does. The stallion bolts with her clinging to his main. I just a horse. I almost died. But i just brought a bars around year. We call that hanging on for dear life. Hey start your an actual then come the villainous wrangler 's they russell spirits her away driving across canyons. The three cow palace give chase on horseback. They face daunting precipitous paths like the ridge of regret but they are determined to get spirits. Family back there. Pursuit is an all danger. Though as they ride they sing. Their hearts out. Accompanied by abigail guitar intel. Each other the kind of stories you swipe. At summer camp one evening finds them devouring marshmallows by the campfire. They quickly devolve into fits of girlish giggle. Tomorrow we're going to take on a dangerous bandits. Are we insane. The idea for this film sprang from the tv series spirit writing free fall at a two thousand and two movie called spirit stallion of the cimarron. The horse rescue plant in today's film is similar to its popular predecessor. But this is a much better movie the animation his vastly improved brings a beautiful cinematic flair to the big screen. The subplots about family and friendship are stronger and the mix of necessities among all the character seems more natural. It also shows that it's normal for people of all races to be friends and worked together. You know once. I was playing checkers and i lost all my pieces. All of my pieces. And i still won the game I think we're abigail is trying to say is the lucky we know would never let anything stop her until spirit gets on that vote. We still have a chance. We'll never know if we don't try we are the pows aren't we do you say prescott the film's blend of reality and complete crazy. Impossibility will keep kids engaged and enjoying the ride in parents will appreciate the blatant but winsome positive messages. Even in the catchy song there is one problem though. Kids may start begging for that pony again. I'm sharon dear burger lane. Spoken hard was hoping you can't keeping always know that you love a belong. Today is friday. June four good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener supported radio myrna brown. Nick eicher will right around the corner. We are starting up our june giving drive. That's coming on monday and let me just take a moment here to thank you for your part in creating a pool. We can use to match some gifts during the june giving drive. That's going to help us. Create an extra incentive to reach our funding goal for our fiscal year end. Now maybe you'd like to add to the pool. Fill it up a little deeper still time to do that. If you're interested. Just drop me a line and i will put you in touch with one of our development team to work out the details. Just email me at nick at w. n. g. dot org nick at w. n. g. dot org. Well it's time now for your listener feedback. It is but i to corrections last week story about portland and seattle. We incorrectly identified an african american lay leader serving in portland. Her name is michelle but we got her last name wrong. It's michelle jones and in monday's history. Book we talked about when the roman catholic church declared joan of arc saint. We got the date wrong. Rome did not make that official designation until the twentieth century. Moving on now to your calls and emails. We'll start with a call from longtime listener with mcfaul. He's a physical therapist and said he often talks with patients about things he hears on the program and of course he recommends they listen for themselves. Even non-christians he says is good exposure for biblical truth anew however get a little bit anxious when the pieces role of the end of your program program regularly proclaims to be biblically objective. I think it's necessary. Clearly state was something. That's more of an opinion all majority of the time i can give hearty amen. The perspective given its not clear biblical truth but instead of versus opinion. I think it'll be wise to clearly state. Something isn't opinion piece if it is one even if that may seem obvious good work team well. Hey thanks for your boldness in talking with your patients. And i really think you did hit on it there. We do tend to place commentaries toward the end of the program. Whether it's cal. Thomas or marvin olesky or kim henderson. And we do make it a practice to refer to commentators as commentators. The implication being that it's commentary and you should notice a difference that when we introduce a news report we will say for example. Sarah weinsberg reports and then sarah locks peace out at the end with reporting for world. I'm sarah weinsberg which commentators don't do now. Maybe we have neglected identifying commentators at times. And you should know if we do. That is an oversight and we sure don't mean to miss label our content so thank you for that reminder next ben speaking of kim henderson we have some audio fan mail for her nick. You know we get quite a bit of that. And that's no surprise to me listener. Lita powell sent this in response to kim's piece about mothers day. I just wanna thank kim for her wonderful pieces. She has such insight and to how we feel so many of us and that piece was just so beautifully written. So i just want to thank you for your beautiful writing. I've listened to that piece couple times. Both times is almost brought me to tears. So thank you so much bye. Well we also got some praise for whitney williams listener league watney of chesapeake virginia emailed to say whitney's piece this week gave a whole new meaning to the world and everything in it here is part of what he wrote. Just when you think you've heard it all and know it. All you hear. A piece about leeches. Thank you whitney for making me smile. Cringe and more importantly further. Appreciate the program that i listen to each weekday morning. Well it's certainly made me cringe. You are you telling me you don't like leeches exactly what i'm saying. I'm with you for the record. Well we also got some appreciative emails from lilian. Hammonds story on tuesday's program about gold star. Mom elaine leung listener reporter said. He clearly heard the skills of good journalist in lillian report and of course he noted that she just completed our world journalism institute which she did with flying colors he said story showed objectivity sensitivity and faith. All three definitely. Did you know you can expect to hear more of. Wj graduate work as we continue working with these young reporters to help them grow their reporting skills. We do have a summer internship program. So you'll get to hear some of the pieces. The students worked on during their time with us at university. And then some so stay tuned now back to the phone lines. Nextstep matt brown from tucson arizona just Wanted to say that. I have heard Comment oh bummer has been given regarding his voice and interestingly enough but there's one voice with world and i thoroughly enjoy listening It actually paul butler. It's actually Not the tone. It's actually the cadence and the intonation. That are so engaging for me as a former npr addict. I consider paul butler's cadence an intonation and overall style very much in keeping with That of npr. Which i listen to for so many years and finally gave up due to their absolute Enforce that political stands so paul Take card man. You really are absolutely The voice that. I enjoy the most not that. I don't enjoy all the voices years in particular is engaging for me as a former. Mpr list of hope you take into right way appreciate all. y'all do. Thank you matt now. Another call from another matt matt templeton of dallas texas. And i just have to say this season of the alaska interview is on. Fire the interviews with ms mcconnell and in warren both had amazing thought leadership and i was extremely moved listening to them.

Two zero republican states then renewed their challenge to the law. They said without that individual mandate tax obamacare is no longer constitutional but the justices ruled at. The states did not have standing to sue because they could not prove that the law harmed them. Four conservative justices sided with the majority and the seven to two ruling. Religious liberty advocates are also celebrating a big win after a separate ruling on thursday. World's anna johannesen brown has more. The supreme court unanimously sided with a catholic foster care agency whose religious values prevent it from working with same sex couples as foster parents. The justices said the city of philadelphia violated the first amendment rights of catholic social services fight limiting its work with the group over its policies. Chief justice john roberts wrote that css quote seeks only accommodation that will allow it to continue serving the children of philadelphia in a manner consistent with its religious beliefs.

Texas governor greg. Abbott says his state will spend up to two hundred and fifty million dollars to build more barriers along the southern border in texas. We will build the wall. We will secure the border but most importantly we will restore safety to the citizens who live in the lone star. State governor's office is also crowd sourcing funds for more barriers setting up a website in a post office box where people can donate money to the effort. The governor said the biden administration is choosing not to enforce the nation's immigration laws and that texas communities are paying the price in the form of increased crime and drug trafficking. That he said has forced his day to act on. Its own questions remain however over how far the state can take the project whose total cost link in timeline or on clear and the effort could face legal challenges including from the federal government.

The fourche in republican states to ban critical race theory plus a historic bible infamous for its errors is is the world and everything in them. It's friday june twenty twenty one drawn to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm myrna brown. Nick eicher culture. Friday and john stonestreet is here. He's president of the colson center and host of the break point podcast. John hey good morning good morning. Well there's a growing movement Of course mainly restricted to red states republican states to target the teaching of critical race theory. Florida is the latest one Joining arkansas idaho and oklahoma. There are at least a dozen other states considering legislation on the subject. But i wanna talk to you. John about your recent commentary on that subject now in no Colson center is not a legislative lobby or anything like that but you do express opinions sometimes on legislation. But this one surprised me. A little bit You had a pretty vigorous word of caution about those states trying to ban. Crt tell me why well. In the first place. I think a lot of the headlines the breathless headlines panicked headlines The angry headlines over the states that have issued legislation limiting how racist talked about in schools The the headlines. There have been overblown i. I'm not sure that even most of those legislations can be characterized as banning. Crt hesitation that. I did have had to do with solving a problem through legislation and the memory here is obviously the memory of prohibition you can pass particular piece of legislation and then lose The war so to speak Legislation has a role Legislation is not the best way or the only way or sufficient enough as a way to deal with really bad ideas. critical race. Theory is full of bad ideas but if a group of legislators think that they can issue a particular piece of legislation. And that's going to solve the problem. Then that's asking legislative action to carry far too much weight but the ideas that are behind critical race. Theory are influential enough in our cultural moment. They are influential enough in the classroom. In media and so many other aspects of corporate woke kness and other things that they need to be addressed and legislating against them actually advance the cultural imagination. Like i said it's very possible. Remember prohibition to try to win your case by passing a law but the law tends to be downstream from culture and the cultural influences and the cultural level of ideas needs to be addressed as well. I have heard the same argument about abortion. I mean just go for hearts and minds don't go for legislation. How's that different. Well i don't think i'd said that we shouldn't Issued legislation when necessary again. I don't think that what these states are trying to do or are necessarily all the same when certainly don't rise rise to the breathless hysteria of The headlines so legislation is very necessary specifically when we're talking about not just bad ideas but actual actions that is harming individuals in this case killing unborn children. That sort of legislative action needs to happen but again i don't think any pro-lifer should imagine that. Their job is to make abortion illegal. I think the end of the day we want it to be as unthinkable as slavery is in other words it needs to be fully dealt with and seen for the horror that it is it. Legislation is not sufficient in and of itself to deal with big cultural challenges. John you made the point that the best way to fight bad ideas is to bring better ideas to the table. So are you saying that the better remedy here might be homeschooling or private education. If as a parent you're concerned about what's being taught in the public schools. In other words. I is that a way to fight bad ideas with better ones. Well that's an interesting distinction. And i think it's also important to note the distinction between whether we're talking about banning it at a state funded university or high school level and what we're teaching primary school students. Who don't have yet the full capacity to understand who they are. And and the history of things and i think there certainly needs to be some ways to limit the harm that the extreme versions of critical race theory in particular bring about and especially on school children. we wouldn want to repeat the mistakes of the americas past in which and little children because of the particular race. They belong to the race. Ethnicity were considered eve or less than human and crt and it's worse forum reverses that and does it too little white children little children and cultural power. And that's a that's a horrific thing to say to a young child when you start talking about middle school and high school and you've got to address the issues and let me be really clear if you home school private school and you're not teaching Students in high school middle school and high school how to understand the influence of these ideas that are dominant in our culture about race and ethnicity and power dynamics if the first time they hear about privilege and about cultural power dynamics should should be in the context of an educational experience. I'm not saying don't talk about it. I'm not saying only talk about it. I'm saying let's highlight it and actually work through. What critical race theory is. I will say this to in going specifically to your question about. Is it better to home scored private school band creasing lee in many areas. There's just no way around that anymore. If there ever was. I mean yes. One of the tragedies When a educational system original approaches hijacked by in ideology is that you don't even get a good education you don't even actually get a full-fledged study of whatever topic that you're looking at instead you get whatever is politically correct you get. Whatever is predetermined and. That's not teaching kids to think in to borrow from robbie. Georges twitter thread. Which i i was responding to in the commentary that i did That is indoctrination. That's not education and they're not the same things you know speaking of education john. I've heard back from listeners. who've have some practical questions on how to choose christian universities recently over the past several weeks you've raised some questions about historically christian institutions moving away from their roots so instead of trying to create some kind of list of recommendations. I guess instead what. I'd ask to be responsive to listeners. Is how do you recommend parents do their homework here to discover whether a school is remaining faithful. I mean what are the right questions to ask. And to whom would you direct those right questions. How do you do the research well. You don't ask the admissions department and you wanna get pam. Maybe star with the admissions department. But you get past it. You don't ask the president whose job it is to sell the school Who you ask are the sophomores. The second semester sophomores. Because the honeymoon's over and they'll tell you exactly what's happening on the campus. So find some sophomores and ask them the questions in particular. I think I i want to just go back and revisit. Something that i said last week which you talking about historically christian institutions in some cases. That's really obvious in what i was talking about was historically christian institutions. Moving away or apologizing for its past convictions. that's gonna be a far harder school on a child's faith on students faith then is a state school in other words when you put Certain ideas that are counter biblical and superimpose them in the mouth of jesus that can be a really disorienting experience. Especially if a student's not grounded in his own faith in any sort of strong way You certainly want to ask the lgbtq questions you certainly want to ask. What are professors teaching in the classroom about these particular issues. Are there any professors here. Who would endorse a gender transition. Are there any professors here. That believe that sex marriage is a legitimate institution as opposed to An invented institution is are their professors here. Who believe that you jump right to the hottest topics of our day where biblical faithfulness has the greatest amount of consequences especially in the academic space. And you say where are they. What are they saying And you know there's a couple of things to be aware of obviously if there's any sort of full out affirmation that's something to be concerned about in the same way though it not only there's a full out affirmation but if if there is a real hesitation to say definitively what's right and wrong or a constant need to hedge every moral statement with an apology about the christian position and when you start apologizing for the christian moral position that's a really bad sign and then when it comes to the social sciences when it comes to what christian activism looks like You you want to kind of keep your ears. Perked up for those kind of typical words having to do with power dynamics and the oppressed and and injustice and these sorts of things. And you know we. We teach students this all the time. That one of the things that you need to do is always question definitions. And i would challenge moms and dads when you hear a professor say. I believe the bible true. Well what do you mean by true. You know i believe that. Every person has dignity. Well what do you mean by dignity. And what gives them every person dignity. And how do you balance the creation and fall in that and the power of asking good questions to get behind the vocabulary. That people are using to the dictionary that they're relying on this just as applicable maybe even or more applicable when. We're talking about christian academics.

Thank you for turning to world radio to help start your day. good morning. I'm nick eicher and myrna brown coming next on the world in everything in it soaking up scripture. Summer is often a time for families to spend more time together having fun and making memories. And there's no better way to do that than to dive into god's word together you can certainly do that the old fashioned way you know reading. But if you're interested in experiencing the bible in a new way. This summer world reviewer. Emily whitten has a few suggestions. What shall we say. Then shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase by no means. We are those who have died to sin. How can we live in it any longer. That's one of the voices from the twelve bible. App launched a kickstarter project in two thousand eighteen cofounders. Jonathan joshua bailey wanted to create a bible app for your smartphone one. You'd want to listen to when we set out over a year ago we didn't just look for one voice. We looked for multiple voices and are in a way. This app combines bible content with a music player you can read the text but the app focuses on audio options. You can listen to an entire book of the bible one particular story or a themed playlist versus. Say on the topic of anxiety. Once you play you'll get a toolbar to customize your experience and that's where you choose your reader the reader. We heard a moment. Ago was kylie reading from the niv. Here's felix one of the espn readers in the beginning was the what i'm to what was with god. A lot of viewers like rosie who also reached the esp. Count it all joy my brothers when you meet trials of various kinds my favorite is the actor david suchet reading the n. Iv but now apart from the law the righteousness of god has been made known to which the law and the prophets testify other ways to customize. The app include changing the background music. You can choose from options like piano ambient or guitar. All fairly soothing and meditative. Finally it's worth mentioning. You can add a timer to your playlist in case you wanna use it before bed to unlock the entire experience you'll need to pay the twenty nine dollar yearly subscription fee. Some pastors and elders might wanna check out the church licensing option. It's a good bit cheaper that way. My second recommendation may be especially helpful for teen boys or reluctant readers. The ethic bible by ten dale and kingston comics came out last fall and it contains over eight hundred twenty pages of bible stories drawn and marvel in dc comics illustrators. Homeowner to the story didn't find out more in the epic bible the presentation spans genesis to revelation and it similar to the popular action bible but the bible differs and not. It's a little more mature including its presentation of violence. Readers see a sword plunged in a hoots belly for instance my main caution though regards. The contrast between the visually muscular idealized comic style heroes and the real heroes of the bible. I corinthians tells us god chose what is weak in the world to shame. The strong and isaiah describes christ as having no former majesty and no beauty that we should desire him that said. The text of this book is remarkably faithful to the original bible text. Much of the dialogue comes straight from scripture and it lists bible chapter and verse references at the bottom of each page. Here's a youtube clip of kingston comics. Founder art heiress on the sean tablet. Show this april have so much antidoto semi letters and notes and e mails for people. Now understand the by. I never understood until you read this. So we we see their elevates the level of bible understanding that makes us super half areas also says that while they originally targeted tween and teen boys. They've seen demand grow among female readers. Men ages twenty to thirty five and hispanic readers if you know of a teen or any reluctant reader who might not read a print version of the bible. This version might just peak their interest. Even more the epic bible might inspire them to find out more by reading the original bible stories. I third recommendation is one. I hope the whole family can enjoy four. This is the love of god that we keep. His commands is going man song Burdens that's music from the corner room created by adam right. He's music minister. Kaba park church in birmingham alabama and he set scripture to music to help his congregation and other christians is and savor scripture cowan brothers. You may trials of various gods. no no thank. Goodness s listeners will find a mix of musical genres here so take a few moments to browse corner. Rooms youtube channel or website to find. What best suits you parents have. Little ones may especially appreciate remember an proclaim rights album for families. I'm emily whitten Ooh a today is friday. june eighteenth. Good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener. Supported world radio at myrna brown. Nick eicher publishing the typo has to be the worst because typos tend to hide on proofing pages only to reappear in dramatic fashion on the printed page. Or at least that's the way it seemed. The typos operated back in the day. When i was editing world magazine but in this june edition of wordplay are george grant tells of a colossal epidemic of typos. That suggested a wicked lack of careful attention in sixteen thirty one robert barker and martin lucas london publishers and booksellers with royal warrants of appointment reprinted. The king james version bible. It was an expertly crafted. Octavo edition bound with exceptional italian calf skin printed on fine smooth paper stock imported from sweden. The newly designed typeface and the high contrast india ink only added to the attractions of the publication. Unfortunately though the text was plagued by several typographical errors that the copy editors typesetters and composites all overlooked one. Typo was particularly egregious in the ten commandments. The word not was omitted. In the sentence thou shalt not commit adultery thus commandment in this beautiful new edition of the bible read now shout commit adultery. The print run was soon dubbed. The wicked bible prompting guffaws throughout london but king. Charles the first and george abbott. The archbishop of canterbury were not amused in the least barker. And lucas were summoned before the high commission star chamber and were fined and stripped of their printing license. Nearly the entire print run of the wicked was seized impounded and subsequently destroyed as a result extant are exceedingly rare. There are only fourteen known to exist today. Most of which are in the collections of universities museums and libraries including oxford cambridge the british library and the new york public library though. The wicked bible is the most prominent example of bible erotica. It is by no means the only one in fifteen sixty two second edition of the geneva bible matthew five nine declares blessed are the place makers for they shall be called the children of god and of course it should read blessed are the peace makers a sixteen twelve printing of the authorized version. Has judas not jesus saying city here. While i go yonder and pray in matthew twenty six thirty six a year later another king. James edition rendered psalm. One nineteen one sixty-one as printers have persecuted me without cause rather than princes have persecuted me in seventeen sixteen yet. Another reprint red sin on more rather than send no more for jeremiah. Thirty one thirty four. A seventeen seventeen clarendon press bible. Had the parable of the vinegar in luke twenty instead of the parable of the in eighteen. O four i kings eight nineteen was translated as thy son shall come forth out of lions rather than out of the loins in one thousand nine hundred twenty. Three addition camels replaced damsels in genesis. Twenty four so rebecca arose she and her camels and followed the man all of this is a reminder to us that while the bible is god breathed inspired in errant and infallible no one translation and no single edition is it remains an inescapable fact. That two air is human. I'm george grant now of a final word. Please on priority. Isn't it interesting that such care was taken to select the finest leather the best paper in inc a beautifully designed typeface and yet. Not enough care was taken for the word. That's the problem not that good materials and workmanship are unimportant but the care for the word must be the priority in all my decades of co laboring friendship with my colleagues at world. What i've most appreciated is the priority. Here take care for the word. I do appreciate the professional quality of the magazines paper ink and designed the good technology rhetorical skill and professional polish of the podcast. But it's care for the word that sets world apart and it's why i think it's so important that people who also prioritize care for the word support world's efforts to produce sound journalism grounded.

I'm looking forward to opening a high tech middle school learning lap in a historic little red. Schoolhouse i hope you enjoy today's program. Good morning a video game.

Days immediately following nine eleven. Ladies and gentlemen please fasten your seatbelt. Looks like we'll be making an unexpected landed in in gander new found land and myrna brown stops by with a review of danny go keys latest album titled jesus people. It's friday september tenth. This is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm paul butler and diker. Good morning up next. Today's news here's can comington. Speaking from the white house on thursday president biden announced sweeping new. Federal vaccine mandates. I'm announcing tonight. A new plan to require more americans to be vaccinated to combat. Those blocking public health plan could affect as many as one hundred million people. The expansive roles mandate that all employers with more than one hundred workers require employees to be vaccinated or test for the virus. Weekly that could impact about eighty million americans and the roughly seventeen million workers at facilities that receive federal medicare or medicaid will have to be fully vaccinated. Biden is also signing an executive order to require vaccination for employees of the executive branch and federal contractors with no option to test out also said he'll use the defense production act to ramp up access to testing at. He said top retailers like walmart. Amazon and kroger have agreed to pitch in and tonight. We're announcing each of these outlets will start to sell at home rapid test kits at cost for the next three months. The administration will also send more federal support to schools including more money for testing and it will require vaccination for workers in head start programs as well as schools run by the defense department and bureau of indian education biden. Said about three quarters of americans have had at least one shot but some eighty million americans remain unvaccinated. A commercial jet flew out of afghanistan on thursday with hundreds of foreigners on board including americans world. Kristen flavin has more. The airways flight to doha left the kabul airport with an estimated. Two hundred people. It was the first such large scale departure. Since the united states cut off the evacuation. More than a week ago flight comes amid a days long standoff over charter planes at another airport that has left many would-be evacuees stranded a senior. Us official told the associated press that the talibans new foreign minister and deputy prime minister helped facilitate thursdays departure from kabul. The flight reportedly carried americans. Us green card holders and other nationalities including germans hungarians and canadians a country official said another. Two hundred passengers will leave afghanistan. Today it was not immediately clear. How many americans were on board thursday's flight reporting for world. I'm kristen five in at a news conference on thursday attorney. General merrick garland called the new pro-life beat law and sexist quote clearly unconstitutional after careful assessment of the facts and the law. The justice department has filed a lawsuit against the state of texas. The justice department will argue that. The bill violates the supremacy clause of the constitution and the fourteenth amendment. The law known as sba eight prohibits abortions wants a heartbeat can be detected. That's usually around six weeks. Courts have blocked other states from an acting similar laws but the texas law is different because it leaves enforcement to private citizens through civil lawsuits instead of criminal prosecutors. The us supreme court's decision last week not to block the texas law has ignited battles over infant life across the country. The number of americans seeking unemployment benefits fell last week to a new pandemic. low world's anna johannesen brown has that story. The labor department reported thursday. That three hundred ten thousand people filed jobless claims last week that was down about eleven percent from three hundred forty five thousand the week before but the spread of the delta very this summer has put renewed pressure on the economy and the job market on wednesday. The federal reserve reported that. Us economic activity downshifted in july and august. Still the ongoing drop in unemployment claims suggests most companies are holding onto their workers despite the slowdown. The drop in new claims also coincided with a decision by twenty-five states to end the enhanced unemployment program early those additional benefits ended nationwide this week reporting for world. I'm ana joe brown. The death toll from hurricane ida and its remnants has risen once again. The louisiana department of health verified eleven additional storm related deaths. The victims died between august. Thirtieth and september sixth the orleans parish coroner said nine of them succumbed to excessive heat and two others died of carbon monoxide poisoning with power out. Many residents have used generators to provide air conditioning and those generators can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. If not properly vented within the new orleans city limits the power grid is almost fully restored. Curfews have been lifted but hundreds of thousands of residents in nearby parishes still have no power or running water. I'm can't covington and straight ahead relativism at work. Plus a new album from one of christian music's hottest artists. This is the world and everything in a. It's friday september tenth. Twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm paul butler. Dan dick anchor time now for culture friday and john. Stonestreet joins us. He's president of the colson center and host of the breakpoint podcast. Hey good morning john. Good morning well. No doubt you heard this one john gibson. Ceo now former ceo of a tech company called tripwire maker of video games opened up his twitter app on a saturday. Never a good idea but nevertheless he opened up a twitter up on saturday and he tweeted the following proud of hashtag. us supreme court affirming the texas law banning abortion for babies with heartbeat as an entertainer. I don't get political often yet with so many vocal peers. On the other side of this issue. I felt it was important to go on the record as a pro-life game developer. Then he hit the send button and after he did. He became a pro-life former game developer. He didn't make it to monday trip. Wire let him go and apologized profusely for the tweet now. You may be tempted to say mr gibson. How could you not have predicted what would happen here but you know. I think this goes to show john that opinions on the abortion issue maybe roughly fifty fifty in the country but It's really not that way at the elite levels of society not at the elite levels at all and the lead in this society. See this issue very very differently than i think. Everyday americans there's a real divide between particularly the way the media elite and those that answer to them. And i think a lotta times. Corporate america largely answers to the twitter mob and to the kind of the pop media mob. you know which oftentimes get their Outrageous reactions. Even from you know some mainstream media outlets but That's not where most people are. Most people very much have embraced a live and let live When it comes to abortion but it also reveals something else. That has to contextualized anytime we talk about. The you know the fifty fifty number. You know that really. Americans are roughly divided in half on this. They're divided in half on this but swimming in a sea of relativism. It's one thing to think that something is wrong period. It's another thing to think that something is wrong for me but not for you and we live in an era of relativism and there is a big difference between those who say I would never get an abortion and those who would say that abortion should be wrong and every circumstance with all the implications of that. And i think that's where a lot of people struggled to swallow the texas law. Okay well similar theme. John but different Elite sector academia. I'm talking about philosophy professor peter. Big ocean Late of portland state university. He didn't get fired. He resigned in a letter that was published this week. A spirited letter of resignation learned about that from bari weiss Late of the new york times also by the way the writer of her own spirited resignation letter She was the one who posted the begovian letter on her sub stack and what he wrote is obviously particular to portland state. But i do wonder whether it's more. Broadly applicable students. He said or not being taught to think. I'll quote here. They are being trained to mimic the moral certainty of ideologues. He says this is not about him quoting again. This is about the kind of institutions we want. He went on to detail the attacks on him. The investigations the threats the retaliation and he just had had it. So i think what we have. Here is a fairly well known. Professor basically giving up on the educational franchise such as it is But i wonder do you think this move possibly will spur reform or is this just a kind of a sad one and done story and we just forget the whole thing. I don't think it's the beginning of any sort of reform. I think that some of these faculty members with whom we disagree dramatically. But who have a you know a good bit of honesty at least honest dialogue and discussion like peter. Gordon does i think we're gonna see more and more of these fall victim. I would love to see them. Stay in the game until they get pushed out. I just think there's a huge difference in the sort of impact you can have whether you're whether you're leaving voluntarily and writing a resignation letter that a few people will see or whether you actually make someone pay. That was the thing that i really appreciated about my late friend. Mike adams is he was willing to to push those lines But you know there was another story in the wall street journal this week. About how young men by and large and talking mainly about students here but young men are largely giving up on college the just as for male and female students but female students don't have to necessarily face although they face different challenges in higher education environments but in the classroom You know male students face this constant barrage you know that they are misogynist and what's wrong with the world and and everything else and so why would you stay in a environment pay a lot of money when you don't get the return and you're getting chastise non. Stop not necessarily for what you've done although that may be the case but mostly just because you happen to have a particular gender identity which then on the other hand is said not to be real anyway. I mean there's just not an roi on this at any level. And i think we're seeing more and more honest brokers of education that are gonna throw up their hands at the same time. Here's where i'm hopeful. I guess i'm less hopeful that the the institutional reform will take place and i more hopeful in the institutional and para institutional innovation that is already taking place although on a small scale. I think it's a golden opportunity right now for christians in education especially and so maybe that's a topic for another day but i think that you know these crises Means that there's tons of white space for christians to be inventive creative and offer better alternatives. Well john shifting gears at least a little bit here. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the nine eleven terrorist attacks on our country. It's hard to believe it's been twenty years already. And while there was certainly a season of cultural solidarity you know. We're all in this together sort of thing that didn't last very long. Why do you think that was. I remember a few months after nine. Eleven hearing from major christian apologists who said that Because of nine eleven postmodernism was dead because no one could watch the evil that took place on nine eleven and still be a relativist instead. What happened is a large part of the culture looked at this active evil and blamed it on people who believed in more absolutes and there was inability to distinguish between what absolutes we believe in in which religious worldview. Those absolutes are grounded in and so to be a fundamentalist. Muslim was different than being a fundamentalist. Whatever else confusing those categories of right and wrong. you know add fifteen years in a A frustrating amount of cultural quagmire and political quagmire. That we've had ad in a couple of disasters ad in a social media and a misinformation day lose and it's been a small step from retreating to Wrongly understanding what is right and what is wrong and the nature of good and evil to actually replacing the two in other words calling good evil and evil good and so here we are where a new intolerance has now taken over western culture and the two stories that we talked about already. Today are examples of that. Aren't they i think of last week. When the texas law came out and it actually was a thinkable reality for people to associate the supreme court and pro-life lawmakers in texas with the taliban so in equivocation of this ideologically radical group capable of doing incredible evils to women and to a culture and then equating that with saving unborn lives. A culture has to be in a real special place. A confusion to get there. And i you know you you can trace back to an initial confusion. And that's why some of the things that we miss the moral clarity the national identity. The patriotism the unity That happened in those days after nine. Eleven and god forbid we have to go through anything like that ever again in order to regain that stuff but we forgotten those lessons. We vowed that we wouldn't and we did So you know that's a lot of thoughts in and there's more but it's hard to believe it's been twenty years. John stonestreet is president of the colson center.

It's the world and everything and today is friday september tenth. Thank you for turning the world radio to help start your day. good morning. i'm paul butler. And i'm nick eicher coming next on the world and everything in nine eleven on stage. The events of that tragic day may seem like an odd subject for musical theater but reviewer sharon dear berger says the juxtaposition of sorrow singing is not as jarring as. Maybe you'd expect. Many of us can picture exactly where we were when we learn to plane crashed into new york. City's world trade center. Those terrible moments caused horror and sarah worldwide but in the town of gander newfoundland. They also prompted acts of kindness. The entire community opened hurts and homes to stranded air travelers for five days following the attack in two thousand seventeen. A musical about those five days opened on broadway on the northeast tip of north america on an island call from land. There's airport they used to be one of the biggest airports in the world and next to it. is. Tom called gander. Come from way was nominated for seven. Tony awards that same year when best direction of a musical and today apple tv releases the film version streaming platform come from away tells the remarkable true story of how a town of ten thousand welcome thirty eight diverted planes carrying nearly seven thousand passengers and crew. Ladies and gentlemen please fasten your seatbelts. Looks like we'll be making an unexpected lampton in gander newfound plant ganders airport lies between europe and the united states so for years it served as an emergency landing location and on september eleventh two thousand and one. It became part of canada's operation yellow ribbon. Anybody in the business knows when you sat down in gander. It's foreign emergency now. We don't know what's going on. The captain tells us to keep everyone from panicking. It is pretty bizarre to imagine singing the story but as the shows many accolades a this format actually works the fast. Paced tale is chock full of mostly endearing characters who bend over backwards to help especially when they realize the full impact of the terror attack and thankfully the lyrics are clear. The audience can easily understand the purposefully strong canadian accents and freezes like come from ways. That's what new feace call anyone nuts from the island or from the rack. Is they like to say to the wireless weather that you've ever heard where everyone is nicer. Pod it's never nice above welcome to the farthest place you'll get them disneyland. Shipwrecks stage scenes change rapidly drawing the audience into the frenzy of those days. We feel the stress of passengers. Some of whom said in plain center runway for twenty eight hours still unsure of what happened on american soil. We enjoy the quick thinking solutions of town residents as they open their homes. Churches gyms and hotel rooms to shelter passengers. We see them generously. Empty grocery shells donate diapers medicine. Close toiletries food lattes casseroles and pitch in however they can here's a local reporter making announcements the baptist. Church need to hand moving their pews. Dr o'brien down at the pharmacy is ready to feel any prescriptions own. The lions club is looking for some toilet paper. If you have any extra medicine pay underwear. Aspirin jackets case grew out of my summer down at the station. We're taking donations. We get caught up in the personal stories to like hanna who's longing to hear from former firefighters son in new york city and the nervous foreigners who speak no english but understand when a new fee open a bible and points to philippians four six. Be anxious for nothing. We wonder if a relationship will blossom between the london executive and the texas woman seated next to each other and one of the planes and it feels good to see the man who was worried. A stranger word steelers wallet in gander. Learn to trust when his dad asked whether he's okay. The man thinks aloud. How do i tell them. I wasn't just okay. I was better. We also hear the perspective of american airlines first female commercial pilot. She landed her. Boeing seven seven seven candor in new one at the pilots who died that day. Charles burlingham was the captain of flight. Seventy seven crashed into the pentagon. I just saw him at a pub in london. You can't imagine a pilot will fight to the ends of the earth to save as their play. he just will. The story does have some drawbacks. One subplot follows a gay couple in the way. The town of firms their lifestyle. The film is rated tv fourteen and includes occasional profanity. It's a shame because come from away can help us remember both the horror and the grease of that awful day. It's emotional watching stranded. Passengers trying to reach loved ones to assure and be reassured. It's hard to hear suspicions over whether any passengers disembarking gander might be security. Risks and ever-looming are the senseless deaths of almost three thousand americans but come from away ultimately reminds us that even the darkest days. Colm provide reasons to sing along. I'm sharon der berg com Before we end our program today three time. Grammy nominee danny gawky recently released a new recording project and world's senior correspondent. Verner brown gave it a listen and has this review. When your last name is go key. Some things are just inevitable. Does usually that. I get a lot of the okeydokey mr gawky. I get that a lot when i was younger. But in two thousand nine twenty eight year. Old danny gawky became a season. Eight contested on american idol. Myriads cheered when they heard his name and his voice. It took me say how found out yesterday later. Gawky is now a forty-one-year-old christian singer and songwriter. Who just released his latest album. Jesus people without being nice on you ask the right through the greatest artists ever was. I'm not saying i am. But i'm saying i wanna poll from kicking off his twelve song album the feel good song. Mak- difference gunky seems to have a knack for creating catchy tunes. This one is the kind of finger snapping toe-tapping melody your mind blair on a bus filled with volunteers headed to serve while the celebratory anthem is a battle cry for christians to join hands in unity and change the world for the better. The song ignorant explicitly christian there are no references for instance to god or jesus and the lyrics and even the l. and the word might is written in lower case. The songs bridge is also worth noting. A changed hard might be acceptable to man but god standards are higher. It's a new heart. He's after and that can only come from the father. Now go keys make. A difference is ambiguous his ballot. All are welcome is just the opposite and indisputable invitation to follow. Jesus this is. The basis of our being welcome is that he paid a price that we couldn't pay and because already paid for. It's like hey come on in. But it's based off the finish work of jesus. Christ we a in music circles. Gochi is known as the blue eyed soul singer. Anybody got some trouble. The milwaukee wisconsin native is not afraid to experiment with different styles and beats songs like peace with its thumping bass dry. Be keys and gospel and views choir our mile with news. Your passion along with the syncopated. Do for love. Make it easy to understand why go keys. Eclectic musical roots run deep as his love for different cultures and my parents raised me right. Let me tell you this like. They raised me in culture. I'm married to a latina. I speak speak spanish along in the song abroad. Acedo which means grateful. In spanish gawky masterfully shows off his bilingual chops. Guest he does it again. On the album's last track. Greece do s mesa or in english. We all need with his trademark. Tenor voice gawky hits all the right notes in the powerful ballot. Who believes what does that mean. Exactly the holy spirit feels us and god's fruit groves in us so instead of he believes in you how about he's working also worth noting gunky pushes the analogy button a little too hard in this song a common occurrence i find any contemporary christian music too many references to the big three ways wind and water. Jesus people go keys. Sixth album brings a nice balance between upbeat and tone down tracks. So you'll feel at home no matter which beat you prefer to laugh on. And if you're a lover of hymns like me pay close attention to the chorus of the album's title track the lyrics. Just might remind you of an old classic with a timeless message. Even changed by keys. Myrna brian Time now to say. Thank you to our team mary. Reichert kristen flavin katie. Gawltney jenny lynn schmidt bonnie pritchett emily whitten steve west. Kent covington owns. Ao he carey.

Seventy two and your listener feedback. It's friday august twenty seventh. This is the world and everything in it from listener. Supported world radio. I'm myrna brown. And i'm nick anchor. News is next. Here's kristen flab twelve. Us servicemembers died and fifteen others suffered injuries thursday in a twin attack on the kabul airport. At least sixty afghan civilians died and more than one hundred forty others were wounded. Two suicide bombers detonated their devices in rapid succession. One outside an airport gate where people had lined up trying to get in the other attacker blew up near the baron hotel a staging ground for afghans and westerners leaving the country. General kenneth mackenzie junior is head of the central command while we're saddened by the loss of life both. Us and afghan were continued to execute the mission. Our mission is to evacuate. Us citizens third-country nationals special immigrant visa holders us embassy staff and afghans at risk the afghan offshoot of the islamic state terror group claimed responsibility for the attack on social media. Western officials had warned of a major attack. Just hours before the bombing and mackenzie says he expects more to come. And we're doing everything we can to be prepared for those attack that includes reaching out to the taliban who are actually providing the outer security cordon around the airfield to make sure they know what we expect them to do to protect us. And we will continue to coordinate with them as as they go forward but his word of possible attacks spread late wednesday. A taliban spokesman denied claims of imminent danger in an address to the nation thursday afternoon president biden vowed to continue the mission and he vowed to find those responsible for killing. Us servicemembers we will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down. Make you pay. How defend our interests in our people with every measure at my command. The us state department estimates about a thousand americans are still waiting to leave afghanistan. Thousands of afghans are also still trying to flee the country earlier this week. Taliban officials said they would not accept any extensions to the august thirty first deadline for a full us troop withdrawal a group of us. Capitol police officers filed suit against former president. Donald trump on thursday world's anna johannesen brown. Has that story. The seven officers accused the former president of intentionally sending violent mob to the capital on january. Six to disrupt the congressional vote. Certifying joe biden's election the suit. Also names trump ally. Roger stone the trump campaign and members of to all right groups the proud boys and oath keepers it alleges. The former president violated the ku klux klan act and committed acts of domestic terrorism in an attempt to stay in power. The lawyers committee for civil rights under law filed the suit in federal court in washington democratic lawmakers have filed to other similar cases in recent months former president has not yet responded to thursday's lawsuit reporting for world. I'm ana hanson brown forecasters are keeping an eye on tropical storm ida. It formed thursday in the caribbean and could become a major hurricane before hitting the northern. Us gulf coast. Late sunday or early monday. Dennis felton is with the national hurricane center of southeastern gulf of mexico. The combination of very low vertical windsor bearing morriston instant firemen. That's going to allow for some some good. Strengthening forecasters predict. The storm will make landfall somewhere in louisiana. It passed over the cayman islands last night and is to roll over western cuba today and in the atlantic tropical storm. Nora could bring heavy wind and rain to western mexico over the weekend. The storm will skirt. The coast before making landfall on mexico's baja pensula early next week. Meanwhile in california wildfires continue to threaten communities on both ends of the state in northern california the counterfire is getting dangerously. Close to lake tahoe. A sickly yellow haze blanketed the popular vacation spot on thursday. The counter fire has consumed five hundred homes since it started on august fourteenth. But the dixie fire remains the state's largest it has burned more than eleven hundred square miles and thirteen hundred buildings. Seven hundred of those are homes and in the southern sierra nevada's ten communities near lake isabella are under evacuation orders. As the french fire grows in southern california. A new fire erupted earlier this week. In the foothills north east of los angeles fire crews quickly subdued it but officials warn hotter weather over the weekend will once again boost the risk of new blazes. The supreme court has thrown out the biden administrations eviction moratorium in an unsigned opinion issued. Late thursday a majority of the justices ruled the centers for disease control and prevention did not have the authority to enact the ban. The opinion said such a move required explicit congressional authorization the court's three liberal justices dissented the trump administration issued the first eviction moratorium in the early months of the pandemic landlords said. It lasted longer than what's necessary especially as the economy began to recover. But as many as three and a half million people recently told the census bureau they face a fiction within the next two months. I'm chris tim. Flavin straight ahead. Evil on display in afghanistan. Plus your listener feedback. This is the world and everything in it. it's friday august twenty seventh twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning. i'm myrna brown nick eicher. We're now four days away from the taliban deadline for the west to leave afghanistan and just a reminder of the actual steaks here what we may be leaving behind even as the taliban engage in media spin that this is a kinder gentler terror group our world colleague mindy bells from a a few days ago on this program on the difference between words and actions that people that i've talked to none of them Believed that this is a gentler taliban and one example. I'll give you as one of the first directives that the Taliban cultural commission issued as it started retaking the provincial capitals a couple of weeks ago it was directed to the local islamic leaders saying please identify and send to was the girls fifteen and widows up to age forty five so that they can be married to taliban fighters i've seen the actual order itself and that is what the women in afghanistan her going on They are all trying to get out. And it's just because of the kind of fear in the actual reality of what the taliban is doing on the ground. It's culture friday. I'd like to welcome john. Stonestreet the president of the colson center and host of the breakpoint. Podcast john. good morning. Good morning of course. Afghanistan is swamping all the news and and probably rightly so but considering that taliban deadline of august thirty first tuesday. I think we're all mindful of the possibility that many people may be left behind. Maybe not american citizens we have to wait and see on that but afghans who simply cannot live under taliban rule. Our latest magazine just went up online john. Maybe ironically dated september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. That's twenty years to the date since nine eleven and we're saying on the cover squandering american sacrifice. That is a bitter pill. It's hard to believe it's been twenty years. It's hard to believe that the circumstances over the last year on the ground in afghanistan have changed so quickly and have become so dreadful on so many different levels. It's it's hard to imagine just short of the taliban targeting and executing more people now. We're just talking about evil of scale that it could be much worse than it is right now and putting it in the light of that. History is even harder to swallow as an american but of course for islam at this version of islam in particular. The twenty years isn't the story. That's just the most recent chapter of a story that goes back centuries and that's really one of the reasons that we're seeing you know what we're seeing twenty years after nine. Eleven is because our historical memory is not good enough. It's not big enough. It's not seeing the world in the same sort of categories also are secular categories of seeing nations governed on economic terms or purely political realities misses a whole section of life in the world that these logic world particularly this kind a muslim takes very very seriously and that is kind of eternal commitments to Things that are believed to be true. Even if they're not. I will say i had a long conversation with many bells about a week ago and i asked her the same question. Obviously we've heard about many people who have served in the military over the last several decades feeling like what was all this four who were on the ground there who had to go door to door there who had to face down the taliban at their worst moments who lost friends loved ones Asking the same question. What was it all for many pointed out to me that you know. It's not a nothing. I guess it's worth saying that there hasn't been another attack on that scale in the last twenty years and a big reason for that has been just simply the fact that the war was taken to the taliban to al-qaeda that was being harboured in afghanistan. So are we creating another context which could make another nine eleven sort of attack a possible in the next several years. That could possibly be true. But we have had twenty years of Living in a place where there were expected attacks and they never actually happened here at least not to that scale well john. I wonder whether we're looking at a terrible humanitarian situation. Unfolding in real time here especially for aghanistan's christians or any religious minority for that matter and we hear this often whenever we contemplate violent open persecution of the church. We hear that the religious liberty battles here at home just pale in comparison to what christians in openly hostile land have to suffer so in other words. How can you worry about. Lawsuits are loss of livelihood. When other christians are looking down the barrel of a gun. You know john. What do you think about that observation. We looking at a terrible humanitarian situation in terrible potential. Martyrdom actually there was some reports posted on facebook this week. That suggested that there was a kind of a vast martyrdom of a young growing and courageous church in afghanistan. And i haven't seen those reports confirmed. So i'm not ready to say what the scale has been and it is something that should I think drives to lift up our brothers and sisters and asked that their heroic courage and example will be a testimony to their persecutors as has been the case throughout so much history. That's what's so crazy by losing you win by dying you live. That's the the back to front narrative of christianity. And it's not really back to front. It's the world being put right side up because of the work in the resurrection of christ. Jesus but your question is a good one. And it's an important one and a few weeks ago i was on a panel talking about that very question With a religious freedom advocate who had actually grown up in an african nation that his parents had fled in order to flee just great persecution and he actually was very comfortable using the word persecution for what was being seen in america. The loss of rights the loss of livelihood jack phillips baron hill stutzman being examples of all of them and then it struck me that the people who are most comfortable using the word persecution even know at different scale for what we're seeing in the west. The growing intolerance of religious belief the growing intolerance of christian belief in particular and behavior and moral belief are those who have actually experienced row persecution. That we would call and we're the ones that are most uncomfortable using that word. I'm really uncomfortable. I mean i'll be honest. I mean there's no comparison For what our brothers and sisters in afghanistan nigeria in particular. Those are two nations front and center on my mind and what we're dealing with but those who have actually gone through it. I think of the stories that roger tells in his book live not by lies And i. I've said for a long time that i think that the best contribution that book makes sin introduces us to heroes of the faith. That will go down in history. But it hasn't been that long ago in history for them to make the history books yet and he went and met with so many of them and they're comfortable looking at what's happening in america and saying this looks and awful lot like what we have seen an x. Y. z in the past. I think that's an interesting observation. I i say that instill say. I'm still uncomfortable. You know making any sort of comparison and that we should be driven to our knees and care about what's happening to our brothers and sisters especially in afghanistan. We talked about that before that one side of why we should care about. Religious freedom in america is that there's no other ally of religious freedom that has both the influence the voice the And the ability to actually do something about persecuted. Religious minorities like america. So if we don't care about it here then it's not only you know. The impact is not only to private citizens here. It's our ability to actually advocate for those who are facing incredible persecution around the world versus the world. Just doesn't come to this fight. It just doesn't you know. Stand up and step up to this challenge. Like america has the ability in the history of doing at a big loss and men. I can't think of certainly any event in my lifetime. And maybe i'm being shortsighted here but i can't think of another event in my lifetime that would have done more damage to our worldwide reputation as standing for keeping promises. Then this one. John stonestreet is president of the colson center and host of the breakpoint podcasts. John thank you thank you. Both additional support comes from covenant college distinctly christian liberal arts college on beautiful lookout mountain georgia more at covenant dot. Edu and from wears valley ranch a home and school for children of struggling families. More about eligibility scholarships at w. e. vr dot org. Well here's a public service announcement for you something. You must never do myrna. I'm listening all right. That is you must never land your helicopter in the parking lot of dairy queen. I can handle that okay. Well no now if you should have to do that. There is an exception to this rule but a thirty three year. Old man from the canadian province of saskatchewan is in a bit of legal hot water after landing his helicopter at the dairy queen and not qualifying for that exception. Royal canadian mounted police in tiny tisdale. Saskatchewan say the pilot from a nearby town touchdown in the parking lot than a passenger got out walked inside and picked up an ice cream cake. Amount spokesman said when the copter landed blew up dustin debris through the area which includes schools and aquatic center and more Now a word about the exception the mount he say that if that parking lot landing had been an actual emergency the pilot wouldn't face any trouble but apparently even the fiercest craving for a tasty frozen treat doesn't qualify good to know it's the world and everything in Today is friday. August twenty seventh. Thank you for turning to world radio to help start your day. good morning. I'm nick and myrna brown coming next on the world and everything in it life onscreen in recent years. Biographical pitchers have gotten increasingly popular. These films tell a sweeping history through the narrow lens of a single person but as world's sarraj weinsberg reports effectively condensing. Someone's life into a two hour film. Well that's no easy task in january twenty twenty. Hundreds of extras gathered at the first congregational church in downtown atlanta men and women dressed in one thousand nine hundred sixty s era business suits and dresses sat in the pews on stage. A woman wearing a yellow skirt suit with matching yellow pillbox hat. Took place behind the pulpit. She belted out of. There is a fountain filled with blood. The congregants raised their hands waving fans and shouting hallelujah amen. If i didn't know i was on a movie set i would have felt like i had stepped back into an actual nineteen sixties church service. This was the set of respect. A new bio pic on the life of aretha franklin the queen of soul the a. The movie is playing in theaters. Now and it stars singer. Jennifer hudson as aretha franklin rita. You talk don't you. Not just saying. I like you to call me miss. Frankly aretha franklin was interested in having a bio-pic made about her life for years. But the detroit free press reported that film producers believed creating a successful movie about her life wouldn't really be possible until after her death. The deeply private singer would have resisted. The script needed to tell her story in particular. She was really sensitive to how her family would be portrayed but film producer scott bernstein said family with all its complications is really the key to her story. You realize it's really a movie about family. You realize her family how much it meant to her. And how complex. All their relationships work as as we know. Read the very complex complex character. And that's one of the challenges of creating a successful bio pic getting across that complexity the quirks the hypocrisies inherent in every human being. Those are what. Make even icons like aretha franklin relatable people. She cries insurance like the rest of us but she also overcomes the movie shows. Aretha franklin's numerous struggles. Her mother died of a heart attack when she was just ten and the film rated. Pg thirteen for language and sexuality alludes to how an older boy raped her. Franklin gave birth to her first son when she was just twelve years old and her second son at age. Fifteen is aretha. Singing is sacred. And you shouldn't do it just because somebody wants you to. music gospel. In particular became her way of coping. Franklin toured the country with her minister father promoting the civil rights movement by singing at church services like the one i saw filmed in atlanta. The movie also shows the difficult relationships aretha franklin had with men. Her father controlled her talent. He had to approve. Which record label aretha signed with what song she sang and even what she wore. I need a change to sing. What i want to sink to get away. Franklin left home with a man who became her first husband. Their marriage eventually ended amid reports of domestic abuse albums and no hits honey of songs that. Move you and tell you do that. You ain't going away. Even as franklin's hits eventually rolled in her happiness was short lived under the shadow of her traumatic past and the pressure to produce more hits. She turned to alcohol as detailed as it is. The film falls short and humanizing franklin in one way. It doesn't give much of an idea of what she thought or felt about everything that happened to her. That could be because nobody knows. The private franklin really did think but it's also difficult for 'bio-pics to hit the right balance of artistic interpretation with accurate historical facts director lisa. Tommy said she and her team wanted to focus on what they knew for. sure about. Franklin's light i mean. We researched everything to introduce live. So there's a lot of things that they were like. That's exactly what her dressed. That's that was you know it really was the second. Challenge bio pic director space is choosing. Which part of a characters life to focus on fight off too much more the wrong part and the movie becomes a dull wikipedia entry producer. Scott barron seen says even aretha franklin herself struggled to understand that before her death in two thousand eighteen rhythm. We talked about the movie. She she thought we were talking to her whole life from the cradle to the grave. Look at the trump. Explain there are no no. None of the ninety. Seventy two the creators respect wisely choose to portray a twenty year. Period of franklin's early life tracking her budding career through its initial struggles to win franklin recorded her best selling album of all time. Her gospel tracts director lisa. Tommy wanted her story to start and end in the church. Go away how the cover crisis. And then find her. Your faith again. Another chipper lost her faith but she did lose her way. Finally a successful bio-pic has to nail casting and when the movie is about the queen of soul that means the pipes are vital that day on set. It was easy to hear why aretha franklin handpicked jennifer hudson for the role. Hudson spent six months learning how to embody franklin before filming started even learning how to play the piano. And she's saying most of the films songs live on set like this rendition of amazing grace. So why were the creators of respect so passionate about telling franklin story in particular director. Lisa tommy says she wanted to hit home. How aretha franklin's career helped advance the lives of all black americans and she wanted audiences to see that with faith and perseverance. You too can find your voice. I truly hope that in your new generation of people and artists listen to her music in this film and and look at her her process and understand That's connect to self is to connect to everyone. And i feel like that's one of the things. I'm kind of embedding into this film. That people can receive from his experience and told shooting reporting for world. I'm sarah weinsberg in atlanta georgia. Right oh today is friday august twenty seventh good morning. This is the world and everything in it from listener. Supported world radio. I'm ernie brown nick. Eicher time now for listener feedback. Let's begin with a few corrections. I during our anniversary coverage we told you. the name of the program came from two passages of scripture. We were right about that part but and talking about mars hill. You mentioned peter. Speaking on mars hill in book. It actually was paul. And i think you know that but just always bring that to your attention so thank you to listener dunkin homes of fredericksburg texas. We did know that. Paul was the speaker not peter. It was paul who referred to the god who made the world and everything in it. And i guess we can only chuck that went up to the oral equivalent of a typo right and on our august seventeenth program. We sit the. Us military was using c. One thirty cargo planes to airlift americans out of afghanistan. Those aircraft are actually see seventeens. All right well moving on now to the peace that generated the most feedback. This month wasn't even close. And that would be whitney williams's commentary about worshiping god in nature now most listeners who emailed or called us did so in vigorous disagreement. And we'll let listener. melvin mikhailian. Summarize the views of most whitney years suggestion about taking time off from attending worship services at church on sunday is a wonderful idea but should be practiced on monday through saturday. Sunday is the lord's day and hebrews ten twenty five warns us not to neglect meeting together. As is the habit of some but encouraging one another. That is what we should be doing with our children. Thank you and listener jam. Mary had this to say. I enjoy whitney williams. Transparent and inspiring commentary our family is also outdoorsy. We love to leave the comforts of home to be inspired. By god's majesty shown in his creation. We probably annoy our camping neighbors by singing. God's praise around our fire but when sunday morning comes we wipe off the first layer of dirt and find a local church. The building maybe run down in the worship is often different from what we're used to when our children were little we attended a service for the sanctuary was decorated with balloons. One of our six kids leaned over. And said i think this is a party. Not a church. We once attended a church camping trip where we enjoyed a wonderful time of outdoor worship on a sunday morning. My concern about williams commentary is that people could use it as an excuse to skip church. So i get the draw to go exploring on sunday morning. I think we miss something when we forgo assembling together. There's nothing mystically spiritual in a building. We learned from cove. It and the first century church that worship can happen outdoors online or in catacombs gathering together is god's command in our joy that is well said and for our part. Let me just say this one is on us. We should have done a much better job. Editing and refining this commentary to reflect worlds commitment to the regular gathering together as believers and. We missed an opportunity to reinforce that are lack of clarity might of lead you to doubt our orthodoxy on this matter. So thank you so much for writing in with your thoughtful critiques and concerns. We appreciate the time you took to share your feedback with us and you have our commitment as a team always to strive to do better while moving on now to some of our other coverage first sarraj weinsberg story from last week about vaccine mandates. Hi guys it's kathleen brayden here in beckwith ontario canada. I wanted to thank you so much for the pc did on caitland and the coerced medical interventions at many post secondary education institutes. I have a very similar experience here in canada. My oldest son is being held back from attending in person classes at our university here. It's very discouraging. Twelve years of homeschooling to see his education. Stagnate like this. I i wanted to thank you so much for providing what was a sober and thoughtful piece on some of the ramifications of these types of governmental mandates. Please keep it up. We shirlow your podcast. God bless next comments on commentary. Good morning this. Is richard burnett and i just wanted to say thank you to kim henderson for bringing back wonderful memories from childhood long summer days and racing up and down the street on my stingray bicycle with all my friends. You all our joy. And i really am thankful for all the uplifting stories besides balanced news. Thank you hi. My name is tracey nickel. I listen from quakertown. Pennsylvania home schooling mom of six kids eleven and under and so your podcast is really my way of keeping up with what's going on in the world but not become burdened and discouraged by it. I also wanted to particularly comment. On steve west piece about his wife and her jigsaw puzzles. My particular hobby is prochet. And i had never really thought about the fact that secretion mandate really speaks to that that when i take just balls of yarn and pattern and a hook and put it together into some kind of the craft that i am in a way making creation just as god did so thank you so much i keep up the great work and we also heard from several who have appreciated our coverage of what's happening in afghanistan. Hi my name is megan. I live in alaska. I'd like to thank emily whitten for her story. Regarding prayer for the situation in afghanistan she interviewed a man who represents open doors. She also asked him to pray at the end of the story. And of course that made perfect sense and it was really sweet to stop and take a few moments to pray with him because of course to pray is the very most important thing that we can do before we go. We have an important announcement for you. We have a winner now in world. Twenty twenty one. Hope awards for effective compassion. Congratulations to safe harbor. Free clinic in stanford washington.

But it's his invention not our he made the pleasure and if you final thoughts from the world radio team work. They've done over the last ten years. It's friday august thirteenth. This is the world and everything in it from listener. Supported world radio. I'm ernie brown and paula. Good more up next can covington has today's news. Three thousand more american troops are heading to afghanistan to help evacuate some personnel from the us embassy in kabul fed. Gone spokesman john. Kirby acknowledged that conditions are deteriorating quickly as the taliban advances and as i said before our troops will as always have the right of self-defense. But this is a narrowly focused mission to help with the help safeguard an orderly reduction of civilian personnel. One army and to marine infantry battalions will interrupt afghanistan by the end of the week to help guard the partial evacuation. The taliban has not yet advanced on kabul but analysts say assault on the country's capital city could be just weeks away. The extremist group on thursday concord afghanistan's second and third largest cities can har- and herat it has now captured twelve provincial capitals and a week long blitz pakistan's prime minister imran khan said thursday that his government has tried to broker peace and afghanistan but the taliban isn't interested the moment the americans started drawing down the troops and especially when they give an exit thought that won the war. Mind that once. The americans left then You know then. They've won the resurgent taliban now controls more than two thirds of the nation in some areas it's fighters are now seen writing on. Us military humvees with american m16's slung across their shoulders. Seth jones with the center for strategic and international studies says in his view the afghan military's biggest. Problem is not a lack of equipment or training but rather morale he says. Afghan troops feel abandoned by the united states and europe. Rally been so decimated. The support for the central government has been so weakened in areas that they're we've seen massive defections of from afghan national security forces latest. Us military intelligence assessment suggests that if current trends hold the taliban could take over the country entirely within a few months new information from the us. Census bureau paints the most vivid portrait. Yet of how. America is changing demographically. Mark perry is senior demographer with the census bureau. He said the data showed that the population growth of the united states has slowed this past decade. Seven point four percent increase was lower than the previous decades nine point seven percent increase and was in fact the second lowest percent increase ever only. The nineteen thirties had slower growth. The figures show continued migration to the south and west. They also indicate that the white population is aging and has fallen to its smallest share of the total population on record. The population under eighteen is increasingly diverse. The census figures will set off. What are sure to be bitter redistricting battles across the country. The numbers could help determine control of us house. In next year's elections the data will also shape how the federal government will distribute one and a half trillion dollars in federal spending each year the number of americans filing jobless claims fell for third straight time last week. World's sarah weinsberg reports thursdays report from the labor department showed that unemployment claims foul by about twelve thousand. Two total of three hundred seventy five thousand. A total of about twelve million. People are receiving unemployment benefits down sharply from thirteen million. The previous week analysts. Say that's a sign that the economy continues to recover but some say another factor is that more than twenty states have canceled temporary special unemployment programs since last year. Self employed and gig workers have been able to apply for unemployment for the first time through one of those programs and a separate program so called enhanced. Unemployment sent extra three hundred dollars a week. Federal checks to recipients with job openings hitting a record high many states felt those programs. Were no longer needed. Both programs will end nationwide next month reporting for world. I'm sarah weinsberg california's largest single wildfire on record continues to grow this week. The dixie fire about one hundred and fifty miles north of sacramento has now burned more than a half million acres and it's already destroyed more than a thousand buildings about half of those. Were homes tom porter with the california department of forestry and fire protection says it takes very little to start a fire right now in the drought-stricken region if there's even a blade of grass near you. That is enough to start a fire these days. It is so dry and the way we've seen this This this burn through Live timber In the tens of thousands of acres an hour is unlike anything. We've seen meantime in montana. Officials have ordered evacuations as strong winds drive a wildfire toward several remote towns. Roughly a hundred large blazes are burning across fifteen states. Mostly in the west can't covington and straight ahead the importance of looking back. Loss the vagaries of technology. This is the world and everything in it. A it's friday august. Thirteen twenty twenty one. Glad to have you along for today's edition of the world and everything in it. Good morning brian. And i'm paul. It's been exciting around here this week. This month were marking a few significant ministry. Anniversaries forty years ago world published our first kid's publication. It's god's world and that's the paper that started it all and launched world news group. That's right paul. And and and we're marking ten years as a program. We've been listening back all week. Highlighting some of our most memorable stories. And we've heard from many of our reporters and staff from from over the years reflecting on god's faithfulness and provisions and i've got to mention to that This past tuesday. We also celebrated one year of world. Watch video news for students so quite a week. Indeed all this reflection got me wondering about the benefits of taking time in our own lives to reflect at one of our live events a couple years ago. Someone asked the panel about biblical role models as reporters. Someone mentioned mark. Someone else luke. The gospel writers were popular and but another chimed in with mary. The mother of jesus luke to nineteen says but mary kept all of these things or she treasured these things and she pondered them in her heart. Good journalists don't just report what they see their good ponders to do they reflect so they can set that coverage within a greater context. Well it's culture. Friday and trevon wax joins us today to help consider the personal and spiritual benefits of a reflective christian life. Good morning trevon morning. You've had a few changes in your life recently. Trevon you're no longer at life way. You've you've started a new chapter of ministry with north american mission board and you turn forty. That's right reflect on yes yes it is trevon many of us i think are just wired to be more reflective than others. You know some people keep journals or diaries family genealogies but it seems like a lot of us are satisfied with just quick social media posts about our lives. Now why do you think it's important for all of us to practice intentional reflection in the rhythm of our lives. Well you know. I think it. It is one of the aspects of being human that we view our lives in terms of a story in terms of a narrative. We think of our lives at the beginning. We think of ourselves on a journey. I mean it's just almost impossible for us to not conceive of our lives in this way. I have a friend who's a fiction writer who is Constantly asking that as a question if you were placed in the story what kind of character would you be and of course. He's asking that question from a fictional standpoint as a novelist but that is really a question that he says is also important for us to consider as human beings because as the scriptures teach. We are in a story. We're in the story that is being written by god. The drama of redemption that is unfolding the grand narrative of scripture from creation all the way to new creation and so Taking a moment to stop and to reflect and to look back at our lives into look forward it is a good way of asking ourselves the question of where we been a who we are and what it is that we're becoming trevon. You said it's a good time to look at the question where we've been. What happens when we spend too much time looking and the review mira and those things those regrets. Well think of something the old missionary leslie new bacon said is that nostalgia for the past and fear of the future. They're both out of balance for the christian There is a sense in which you can look back and it become paralyzing. Maybe because of regrets because of things that you've done that you think are things that have had an impact on your life in in such a way that You live with the consequences but a lot of times. It's easy to look back at the past too much murder because We love living there. There are aspects of the past that we actually enjoy orthon the present or that we We we yearn for we have a rosy idea of the past either one of those ways of can be detrimental if they keep us from the tasks that god has put in front of us in our day to day lives in a recent blog. You wrote that you set aside time every july to take a break from writing articles and you even put away your social media feeds. So how was it. How was this year's break. And what did you find yourself reflecting on during that time away. Well it was fantastic as it is every year to to do that i. I'm not always off of social media every july. But i'm generally off of posting anything for a whole month and this time i was pretty much off both and i will say being off. Social media has reminded me and has taught me something. We don't need to fill every single nook and cranny of our lives with content. That's you know coming out us from all sorts of places because if we do that we're going to wind up just being driven by. Whatever is newest whatever's the biggest news of the day Without really saving any time to actually think through what is going on in the world around us what our responsibilities to those closest to us and whatnot now you mentioned the danger of living in the past. So what does a healthy christian reflective life look like. I think it's important for us to look to the past in order to retrieve what we need for the future. God has so orchestrated things that there are events and moments in our past that are designed by him to make us into shape us into the kind of people who will have an impact on others in the future. Almost anybody who's gone even through tragedy urge times of suffering will later find some sense of purpose and meaning in suffering for the way that that experience is prepared them for something else down the road maybe something related to their own life and job. Maybe something related to how they minister to others but I think personally we look back to our past. Say what what was god doing then to prepare me for what he has for me now and ahead. I think it's important for us to know our history to know our past no where we've come from Every generation is tasked with handing down the faith once for all delivered to the saints. Every generation is tasked with receiving that faith that gospel and then passing it to the next generation of what whatever we might think when we look at the past. We don't find a golden era in which everything was pristine but we do fine are aspects of true christianity gifts from the lord that we can use for the days ahead It's like a treasure box back. There and god has put things in the past that are going to aid us as christians as we seek to be faithful in the future and so just as we do that with our personal lives. I think it's important for us to do that as christians. We looked to the challenges that we see ahead of us. We need to look back to grab resources. We need from the christians who have gone before us. Well one of the things that i've done for. Oh twenty plus years. I keep a journal. And that's how i record reflections. What are some other things that we can do to make sure that we are recording. You know the reflections. You know the things that that god is giving us as we look back done. Something very similar. I keep a prayer journal. It's nice to be able to go back and search that journal into see things in the past of the see god's faithfulness and To see how. God brought us through difficult times. You see the is doing this regularly. He's in a particular moment of despair. Or he's got some kind of problem that he's facing and psalmist then goes back and reminds himself of the goodness of the lord reminds himself the way the lord has has blessed him and has Done great things for him in the past. It's a it's a way of preaching the gospel to ourselves and i think it's important for us to To keep count of the wonders of god. The more we do that the more we are likely to recognize. God's good gifts to us when they come to be grateful for them. Well trevon wax vice president for research and resource development. North american mission board trevon. Thanks so much for joining us this morning. Thank you thank you both by to be with you.

God's holiness thousands of video teaching series books articles and more at ligonier dot org. Well if you happen to be a librarian. Here's something you probably don't see every day the staff at a plymouth. Pennsylvania library recently received a book return with a note attached handwritten in tidy cursive. Here's how that note started quoting here. Fifteen years ago yes fifty. A little girl checked me out of this library in one thousand nine hundred seventy one at this time. She didn't know they were going to move from plymouth back then. Kids weren't told things like that as you can see. She took very good care of me. That's the tale from a two page apology out. It went on to explain that the library patron borrowed. The book is a little girl and her family moved from the area. Short time later the book called coins you can collect got packed away with the rest of the family's belongings after many moves boxes and shelves. The book was finally returned to the library along with the note and a twenty dollar bill. The author of the note admitted it was probably insufficient to cover the overdue. Fine but she said perhaps it could go towards paying the fines of the next child who takes their library book on such an adventure. It's the world and everything Today is friday august thirteenth. Thank you for turning to world radio to help start your day. good morning. I'm paul butler and myrna brown. Coming up next on the world and everything in it our final three highlights from the past next week we return to our usual programming. But it's been humbling to remember the many wonderful stories. God brought our way. We hope you've been encouraged by them. I know i have today. Cs lewis on stage. The value of a human life and a community grief observed. Let's begin by returning to twenty twelve. Not even a full year into the program as then co host. Joseph sly filed this story on maximum clean and his stage production of this tape. Letters screw tape letters is often humorous. But it's also chilling at times such as when screw tape and towed pipe grow feverish with devilish delight over the idea of perverting what god has created for human happiness and turning it into the means of human destruction. Never forget we're dealing with any pleasure and it's normal satisfying form. We are on the enemies zone grounds one. Oh we've won many. So through pleasures but it's his invention not ours. He made the pleasures all our research. Thus far has not enabled us to produce one. The screw tape letters succeeds as both entertainment and edification attribute to both max mclean and the genius of cs. Lewis book for christians who happened to be in the audience. Mclean hopes seen screw tape. Brought to life will prompt them to be more on their guard. About what the bible calls the wiles of the devil. We don't spend a lot of time talking about spiritual warfare or the poverty. And i think that our christian life would be more we would. We would be more alert. I would say to virtue to grace if we recognize it. Somebody's really out to get us. It would bring us more to the cross. More to kreis affectionate tangos screw tape. Our next story highlight celebrate the anniversary of different sort in twenty seventeen world correspondent katie. Gawltney introduced us to a family whose life had been. Unexpectedly enriched by a very special edition a birthday party for palmer anderson. It's at a busy ice cream shop. In north dallas and one year old palmer is the star attraction sprague. Bright blond hair. Stick straight up off her head in a tiny ponytail. She has pale blue almond shaped eyes. They offer a hint that she's a member of a special club. A club that only one in every seven hundred babies in the us belongs to palmer has down syndrome. That's a part of who she is. It's no different than the fact that she has. Blonde hair It's not katie anderson be palmer's mom she says when palmer was born the down syndrome diagnosis came as a surprise to her and her husband. Dave palmer is a lot like any one year old she scoots and crawls across the floor. Snacks on cheerios and mouths brightly colored toys. She wants to feed herself and loves banging on her little red piano every time her daddy can some remarks he just be lying to their front door. A huge smile on her face. She adores her big sister beckett. She literally just her is just follow her everywhere she goes and just in just twelve months. The baby who surprised dave and katie anderson with down syndrome diagnosis continues to surprise them. Katie says god has used palmer to change your perspective about what normal means and to grow her capacity to love others. I wouldn't want it any other way. I i wouldn't. I wouldn't change palmer at all not one single bit. I wouldn't even take away her down syndrome if i could That in of itself has been gifts me in our family for world radio. I'm katie goldman reporting dallas texas and finally. Today we wrap up with one of our most memorable stories from last year. Kim anderson's spent months digging into a horrific series of murders in two thousand seventeen alone. Gunmen killed eight people. In rural lincoln county mississippi over the memorial day weekend can met with the families and discovered how they handled such incredible grief. And how many of them found healing through forgiveness the morning jury selection began in the capital murder. Trial of corey godbolt. The sky thundered rain fell and sheets. It was like two and a half years of tears. Bottled up coming down all at once. The families of god's eight victims have waited a long time for justice. Willie corey god volts. Alleged rampage ended here. Daisy more attended the trial. She knew corey godbolt because he hung out at her grandmother's house but that was before he murdered her nephew. Motion roller coaster. This is a family member. This one we grew up with but then on the other side of it is like who is this person. Could you do those things. Reporter tarez able said the families of victims and witnesses like herself couldn't wait to get the trial behind them. I think there was this big anticipation of getting the trial over with. But you didn't realize what the trial was gonna mean as far as what you're gonna learn what you're going to see who you're going to see. You know that kind of thing apple was the first to take the stand. Her video of gobbles confession. Have become primary evidence. The clarion ledger even sent a lawyer down to protect her source from being named the one that had called her. During the night. Jurors studied the footage of god bolton able as it played on a screen at the front of the courtroom. Audio here is courtesy of april and the clarion ledger. Montages was a rare thing. They showed mercy. That i don gobbled watched the video to surrounded by a trio of defense attorneys. Instead of prison orange. He got to wear a coat and tied accord each day as well as distinguished pero wide framed glasses shayla edwards found it difficult to be near him. When you see sitting in front of you the man that killed your children. So it's kinda hard. Especially mortis may has health problems. But she made it to the trial anyway. Murder smets daughter. Sheila barrage was one of the shooting. Victims dear no recess at the trial. Nee described what it was like to watch her. Granddaughter weep in the witness stand. I hate to see any because when this first half with i was no help them at all i mean make you cry on my so and all i could do cry but may said she can now give her grandchildren as sense of direction six months after the tragedy she did a deep dive into scripture. God became her comfort in knowing who he is and how he died. For taylor's like us you can't help but love god. I think i learned to pin on him more and more each thank. Lean not to your own understand. I'll that way as a non detailed and he will die regular still. She misses taking rides with her daughter and the meals she cooked may also mourns the loss of her son in law. Another one of the eight victims myth of really bad may has grieved before but she says this time has been different when it's going to. You is a hurt that that only god can bring you back from feel like he's doing lavar ready dot net for me. If you'd like to hear any of the complete versions of these features we've included links to them and today's transcript w. n. g. dot org now. We could only feature twelve stories this week in this segment meeting. There were so many good ones. We didn't have time to highlight so on behalf of all the editors at world i want to express our deep appreciation to our mini reporters and correspondents over the years. Who invested so much time and energy into our mission of biblically objective journalism. Thank you Today is friday august thirteenth. Good morning this is the world and everything in it from listener supported world radio. I'm ernie brown. And i'm paul butler as our week of anniversary coverage draws to a close we leave you now with a few final thoughts from three members of the world radio team and we'll start with the voice. You've heard just about every day for the last eight years mary record here. And my reflection reveals to me. God's providence and also his sense of humor for some quick name drops. Marvin laskey picked me along with nine others for the very first. Wj i correspond mid-career people back in two thousand eleven it was just astounding to me that he did that. To people from that class remained friends. Michael cochran and laura edgehill now. Both of them have moved on from world. But or friendships haven't that nick eicher plucked me from obscurity to radio still blows my mind and when the incomparable joseph's life moved on from world. Nick made me the offer to co-host. And when i got around to asking about vacation time. Nick mumbled something about well for now. This is just a start up. And then i heard the phrase probably not that was not a deterrent. I said okay. And i had never looked back. Our early news guys can't covington and jim. Henry had to teach me everything about news writing. We had to fit entire stories about war disease and corruption into forty five seconds. Sometimes it took me all day just to do that. Kristen flavin actually moved in with my family to teach me how to edit audio so everyone was all in to make this thing. Go last story in spring of twenty twenty jenny rough and i were at the supreme court. She was writing a story about sewage systems. And she thought how creative would it be to begin that radio. Peace with the sound of a toilet. Flush at the supreme court so i asked a passing employees whether he could get us some sound from an in chambers porcelain thrown. He said no so. Johnny and i improvised but apparently he reported us to the public information office. Because the next day a reprimand awaited us from that office. Whoops well anyway during telephonic oral arguments soon after that somewhere. Somehow right in the middle of barbie american association of political consultants. The sound of a toilet flushing and to this day. It's still a mystery as to who did that. But somehow that seemed like justice to me. I'm so grateful for this job. And i'm grateful every day for the opportunity. God's given me. I this. Is ken covington. And thinking back on all of the years here with the world everything in there have been a lot of fun memories. A few embarrassing ones I think one time. I referred to nikki. Haley as the governor of south korea as opposed to the governor south carolina so that was fun and another embarrassing memory. That have was going back to the early days in the early days of the world and everything in it was very much like working at a startup business where it's a very small team. You're working long hours. Everybody wears six different hats and it was a lot of fun but also hard work running around like chickens with their heads. Cut off to to get the program out the door each day. I just remember one interview. I did with somebody in washington. Dc for a particular story and we were doing a lot of phone interviews. At that time we would interview people by telephone. We don't do that very much anymore. Because the sound quality is better online. But i was working from a home studio and i wanted to do was turn off call waiting so that in the middle of the interview. We were not interrupted by an incoming call so i forget what the code is. It's something you dial. Something like star sixty nine or whatever and then dial the phone number in that. Make sure the call waiting's turned off and you're not going to be interrupted. Well the problem is. I entered the wrong code and not long after the interview. Guess contacted me. And said hey. I've been getting calls from people asking for you now. This was really confusing to me. Because i was not even aware of the existence of the call forwarding feature. But i had entered the wrong code. I had turned on call forwarding and i inadvertently ford all of my calls to the guests. So that's one of those One of those funds stories over the years embarrassing moments. But there's been a lot of There there've been a few of those embarrassing moments but it's it's all been a lot of fun. Hi this is anna. Joe hansen brown. I started working for world three years ago and one of my first assignments was covering the one year anniversary of the sutherland springs shooting. It was a tiny church in a tiny community in texas where a gunman walked in on a sunday morning and killed twenty seven people and one year later world wanted to cover how the community had coped with that level of trauma and for some unfathomable reason they sent me fresh out of. Wj i to do this story. I remember being absolutely terrified about the responsibility. Going to this community and asking people to relive literally the worst day of their lives while they stared into massive microphone. It felt incredibly daunting but there were a couple of specific individuals. I wanted to talk to first the pastor of the church who lost his daughter that day. The worship leader who had been paralyzed in the shooting and the church member who went after the shooter and stopped him as he ran from the church. But i wasn't sure if i would be able to talk to any of them if they would be available or if they would even be willing to talk to me so i remember praying desperately that god would bring me to just the right people. The people who stories and perspectives. He wanted me to share with listeners. Sunday morning. I went to the church and attended a morning service and i saw god very clearly answer that prayer because the pastor in his morning announcements told everyone that he would be in meetings the rest of the day so unavailable for me to interview. The worship. pastor was out sick that morning. So i knew i would be able to talk to him. But as we filed out of the church after the service that last person on my list the man who stopped the shooter he was standing at the sanctuary door literally greeting people as they filed out and i had to grin because god had made it so abundantly clear who. We wanted me to talk to that day. By the end of the weekend i was able to talk with multiple survivors. Who trusted me to tell their stories. Which is always humbling. No matter what topic. I'm reporting on and sometimes it's a really daunting responsibility. But so grateful. Knowing that god will guide me through that and provide people and stories and interviews. And i'm so grateful for world that enables me to go out and tell those people stories. It's time to think our team in order of appearance this week. Mary reichert can't covington nick. Eicher sarah sh- weinsberg jenny. Len smith barney. Pritchett katie gawltney. Jenny rough kim henderson own.

Boomer & Gio Show Podcast (6/2/21)

"This is the degree just touching the maybe day streep dot body. Good morning boomer. Our you doing all right change. Where you're alan houston jersey over your i. Guess your sweatshirt there so you're all far up. Today's game clank capella it. Oh he just put the baltimore material there. You can't ask for anything more. If you're tom typical honestly you can't and i know that a lot of people out there don't understand what this does and how this can actually ignite and it will bring the team together. Team has struggled. The team has been is been insulted. It's been embarrassed. It's been criticized everything that you could possibly say about the knicks in this series negativity has been said and now clint capellas just adding whip cream. Right on the top of all of this. And if you're if you have a sense pride which. I know the players. There's no question about. They're playing hard. Just not hitting shots and whatever's happening with the rotation and how you know tom. Tomato is basically changed the way that he had played during the regular season and now playing differently with different players at different spots at different times in the game. All of that stuff now comes down to what clint cappella said and powers a player. I'd be pissed and it would be on the bulletin board. I don't anybody says that. I know it sounds juvenile and i know it sounds like they're professional basketball players. None of this should matter. And i don't think the knicks will say any of it matters. But i point to a huge series between montreal. Toronto montreal found themselves in the same situation down three one everybody in toronto. Picking okay. Toronto is going to move on to play winnipeg in the north division finals. And you know what will somehow someway mustered up everything that they possibly could get from their goalie all the way out to their low scoring team and they beat this high scoring toronto. Maple leaf team. Yes if you are the knicks one boomer. We talked to this conversation. The next if you are the nec's you after you have to say to yourself. What clint cappella go. Screw you know this is. This is going to motivate us to at least get this game. We are not losing this game in our building. We're not losing the series in our building. Well a couple of things one the first round of the nba. Generally when you're down three one you end up losing the series. I do feel like this is a compliment to postseason. Nhl hockey you know playoff hockey in the the way that it is. You feel like if you're down three one series even if it's the first round you can come back and win because it happens more in that sport than it does in the nba but also it is different when the opponent starts talking like this surfing. This is something that i wanted to ask you about because you seen at all. You were on back pages. People were crushing times in your career but if an opponent especially in a series now where this game five you played them three or four times regular season. You've played them now. Four games in this series the opponent. Is this respecting you in this way. Publicly like this. I mean it's all right. You want to trash talk on the court trash. Talk on the court fun. That happens all the time but to go. Wow this cocky this often where coming to your house in send you on vacation that is different than the back page of the new york post in new york bricks or whatever it says after these losses i mean this this ratchet up a level that only something like this could do and i know that the knicks reacted the derrick. Rose said hey. I'm thirty two years old. Whatever said i haven't talked trash in my life. I'm not going to start now. Jewish reynolds said. I don't care. I don't care i don't care. They're not ed futile guys. Show still not. They're not the team. I thought they me they are they one hundred percent and you know you have to remember back when you did play football at bellport you remember. How coaches would use these kinds of psychological game. Told you about one. That was a great one where they pretended that west islip came to our locker room and drew a lion. Because they're the west islip on our locker room door and i found out later is actually the coaches that did that. Fire is up by the way. There's a lot of that's going on in today's society in the world is sports. I mean it is. It is the purest form of motivation. Is to feel if you are being disrespected. You you know that. I know that the players the knicks are reacting smartly to it chirping wise and in terms of they really have nothing to chirp about especially with the way that they played have. Even you know even game two is not a great game and even if they win this game. They're going to have a hell of a time down atlanta for game six. But yeah i this is this. Is this exactly what the knicks needed. I think so. I'd like to thank. Clint capella for at least enlightening. Some of the players. About just how embarrassing. This performance has been how bad at hand. But you know what on the other end of it. The knicks do come out and get smacked around like they didn't games three and four. After clint capellas said this. I mean we have to think about it. Everybody the consensus. His of this is going to inspire the knicks. They can't go down like this. It's at the garden the garden crap. But what if they do well and that's a whole nother set of circumstances that we will be discussing tomorrow on whatever happens. Is there anything worse than when someone talks. This type of trash backs it up. Well attractive is trash. Reggie miller talk trash by the way reggie miller is going to be in. The house is doing the game with marv. Yeah and you know this. It's one thing to have one villain in the in the game in terms of trae young in terms of his basketball playing and his ability. And what he's been doing to the next. It's another thing to have not only trae young in the house but reggie miller and housing. I mean that's a little tough to swallow for us but you know it just. It's always been this way for the next. With the exception of back in the sixty nine hundred seventy three. I think whatever it was but you know. it's always been hard for the knicks. It's always been hard and this has hard for the next at. It really comes down to again. Like i said at the beginning of all of this. How do you how do you contain trae. Young is really the biggest thing and then the next thing after that is Julius randle can't be turning the ball over walking fumbling around bricks. Missing the missing. The rim sometimes to scipio going off his hands out of bounds. I mean 'cause. I've never seen his series has been so inept and so bad it's maybe he's trying to become comeback player of the year again next year. I don't know what it is but you know. Hopefully he gets his game right tonight and he becomes a part of the reasons why they win as opposed to the ice. Oh ball that we have watched now these last two games or four games. That is just not been great. Just great. I'm not ready for this to be over yet. I don't want it to be over yet. I may be saying something differently tonight. If the knicks are down thirteen fourteen again. Then i'll be like you know what. Now i do want it to be over because i can't stand watching its anymore But i really do believe there's at least some life in them tonight and i wanted to on sunday. Just totally say they're done because it was that bad. But i can't after these couple of days kit your want your team to win. I have bought knicks jersey since nineteen ninety nine wearing. Now you can see that. This is the gallon houston nike. Swing man that i have gone to for whatever that is twenty something years twenty two years that i hung onto this jersey. So i want this to continue desperately and it's going to leave a bad taste all of our mouths if they go out the atlanta hawks like i wanna see what does with his rotation and how he makes any sort of adjustment. This what we brought him here for you know. He's been a great coach. Gave us a great season in great gave us a great second half of the season especially and the fact that they were able to win their last three home games away. They didn't get the four seed tells me that they can go on a three game winning streak. But you can't go on three game winning streak until you wouldn't game the first of those three games and that's tonight and that's where the whole pride factor comes in watching the nets last night. I'm still holding that. They're going to be sixteen and five and they're going to win an nba championship. Assuming that the big three stay healthy. Now i know that they have a to me. This is the nba championship. Milwaukee versus the net speed. These are the two best teams. Well sure especially with the anthony davis injury now in the joel embiid injury. I mean this you're right. I mean you can really make that case as the nets. Take care of the celtics in five games and i. I expect the nets to beat the box but that will actually be a basketball series as opposed to what we just watched between these two teams. So that'll be at least fun. But i'm not even ready to turn the page here on round one with the knicks because if the knicks get eliminated and it's all nets. The rest of the way fans is going to be a long road. I mean curry every set. It last night got three of the best scores. Nba's ever seen. Yeah and they go to either one of those guys at anytime to get their own shot like that's the difference in the nba. You get three guys like that. They can create their own shots at pardons controlling the flow of the game. No look passes and three three point bombs and rebounds and i mean it's ridiculous just how effortlessly it looks to them you know. And that's that's the reason why. Nba teams want to have superstars. The knicks stone have a derrick. Rose was a at one time. And he's playing in a very high level when you watch those three guys play. I mean it's ridiculous. Yes it's unbelievable. How how easy. And just how good they they have now come together and they played when they've only played eight games together coming into the playoffs. Yeah it just shows you. The talent will always rule in the nba. Regardless if you have enough of it's just not going to be able to be stopped. So i got an invite to the garden tonight from somebody that works here now. I don't know this guy all that. Well so that was part of my decision making. And if i should go or not because i once i tell you the name you understand what i talk about but i already made plans with another friend of mine. I hadn't seen in a while to go out and watch the game with. I didn't want to break those plans. And plus i don't know this guy that well so he reaches out to me and he says i got this extra ticket you wanna go to the game. Just me and you you know. It was pat boyle pat boyle up in the nosebleed. Pat shurmur office fame right sleeping in his office leaving the note. Thanks for the ear. Pat boyle so i said patterson i really appreciate you thinking of me. That's very very nice of you. It did feel like a little bit of an ass kisser. Type of thing on wfan wfan half oil. Let me take giono game all type of thing. Hey who did you ask him where the seats were. I didn't because i really did already have plans. And i should ask them where the where i wear the seats he may have. I don't know he's the type of guy that i could see having very good seats while why do you think that is come from a rich family. I had to get that from him. Pat boyle that he's got comes from money. I'm not even sure if it's that or that he would somehow figure out how to swing. Tickets comes from money. that's what you're saying. I don't know. I just get this kind of vines did when. Somebody's not cocky. That's got to be some sort of back. You guys can be wearing a jersey like you throw the sanni water bottle on an opposing player. He's not he's a man could do. He is after his transgression with you. In the office. He has really of the week. Sadoun sedona so get pat boyle online. Let's find out where these seats do. But i already turned him down and someone else accepted. He texted me and people aren't going to like this. who accepted. Who will be in the house. Evan roberts to watch the game ever no. It's not evan roberts. People are knocking up big zoo. Yup big zoo is going back. The big mush mush now. He's he's not the most men don't fish either but a lot of people tweeted us that and they are not going to like the fact. That big zoo is going back into the building tonight. We hear we hear my favorite part so if people didn't see the video else my favorite part of the big zoo in atlanta video is game. Three he's going nuts before the game. You know he's going we. What's the score off the final score. And then then zoos in the hotel room with his shirt off he goes i well. We still here. So he's going to be there tonight because he's gonna be there tonight. So big who's going to see three games in a row and he will be in the garden tonight You know what the think about it as the reason that we're able to do this is because he's a crazy nick fan. Yeah that's why you'd wanna do that. You want to have him having experience. Unfortunately it didn't work out well. Form did work out well for us from the standpoint that the knicks lost both games but the content that we received in return right right and he had he was able to have a one night. Stand with a bartender. He drawing beers. You met some friends. Indiana great weekend you put weight on. Of course i would. If i were down. That'd be a five pound weaken for me. I'd be going crazy for him. it's probably a ten pound weaken. But yeah i mean i just. I hope that the knicks win not only to keep this thing going on the knicks fan but also get people off zoos back for thinking that zoo as the knicks in this series because he went down to atlanta and they got absolutely crushed. Now would you. Let's say we all liked to do stuff and night. Would you go to the game with pat boyle knowing what you know of him now has nothing to do with pat boyle or knowing what i know of him. Seems like a nice guy. Just not a body that i want to go spend you know so like me saying that is in like an insulting thing to him i mean like i don't really party of his yeah i like him. I do like them now after everything i think he's turned around but i mean going to a game with him. I would like to see where the tickets are that. I'm surprised you didn't ask well. I really had no intention. I mean he didn't have any intention to going one. Because i'm not that close to them too i already. I was excited to see this friend of mine tonight and watch the game and the question is is there a one two or three at the beginning of the ticket. What's that the chase bridge speeds probably up there and then bridge. That's where he is. I don't know i get text them. I'll text but is this a continuation of the pet. Boil trying to sweet his way into stardom situation. But that's another thing that i felt because he's also asked me to do a couple of things. Now hey wanna come golf. You wanna do this. I'm like don't golf thing. You look. I don't do anything no i do. I do think you go to kavanagh's he's not out of town. I do plenty of things. That's what i'm saying. Well you go. Boating capitalists and i'll go up to the portland villager inches. None of the regular show would would go with him. You know he went to the sort of this new guest star. Who's popular which that is true. Is that as well. What is going on everybody every body here. What are the chances that we ended up with. These two. Doing a podcast. That's what it is. He's guys guys they're going to have digital content is a nice guys boil in zoo. That's what he's doing. He's trying to klom all of the zoo popularity right now. He saw how we were able to as he knows. You're not going to say yes so. He saw what we were able to do for zoo. He's coming to me. Now grab a little of that. And then since i said no. He's going zoo to try to get a little bit of that. He's he's smart. He's smart he's sits at. This is all part of the pat boyle playbook all started back when he slept on your office couch and it's all continued from there and drink one of my aunts though and voice. Smart about it though i tell you he is a good kid we We joke a good kid but hopefully the two of them can see a victory tonight in the garden.

Our painting designed celebrating one hundred years while our dot com slash. One hundred and twenty seconds tells the story from last night durant out of the right wing pulls up three casts doubt this happen and just give it a kevin durant. He didn't need a play. 'cause he can just get to a small it over during nineteen thirteen d nets one hundred celtics steel by brown. Hvac foot quarter irving right wing. Three and there is carino in castro on the fan. One twenty three one zero nine the final and eleven to spurt from the nets in the fourth quarter. Put the game away. The big three as they call them. James harden the triple double had thirty four kyrie irving twenty-five kevin durant twenty four and the nets advancing head coach. Steve nash says goodwin. Everyone played a par. It really takes a team effort. you know. One of the guys are in the rotation and playing their role or they're not in there on the bench and they're just trying to know the gabe klein and support their teammates. You know it really is a team effort. And i thought our complementary players did a great job thirty four twenty four and twenty five complementary players did a great job i i mean i know steve has a the right things and he's saying all the right things he's never not going to say all the right but in fairness nick claxton gave them good physical minutes in the fruit and boston played hard in this game early. Tyler johnson made a couple of threes. You know joe. Hair i met. I didn't get what he's saying. Look man you got three hall of famers applying at a hall of fame. And now you know. They'll have much tougher series against milwaukee. I am much. I'm sticking with my sixteen and five. Nba champions. I'm sticking with well. We will see game one very quickly saturday at barclay center. I didn't know when that would start. So it's this weekend at at barclays. No that's not right. it's gotta be. Yeah yeah that's right okay. I'm sorry two to that up so that'll be Saturday night i also. The sun's hammered the lakers one fifteen eighty five for a three two series lead. No anthony davis here. Was lebron pretty much telling the story and this one. I mean. it's just that simple Got whatever they wanted to get to and his game. Booker had thirty to lead the way. And so the suns up three to mention. Oh anthony davis and a thirty point loss for the lakers who will have game six in their building. Also last night you had the nuggets beat the blazers in double overtime. One forty seven to one forty nikola jokic with thirty eight points. Eleven rebounds nine assists four blocked shots not too shabby now. Damian lillard had fifty five a couple of tying threes but not enough now twelve of them in this game here was almost got done. We got to win both in an extra games if we're going to continue the one thing and even though the first three they showed on. Cbs sports network. That is the most remarkable these guys they shoot over people like. It's nothing hand in the face hands straight up and it's like no problem put it in so anyway. The nuggets up three games to two now as they will have to portland for game six and of course tonight at madison square garden. Nixon hawks game five atlanta up three games to one. Clint capella says. Essentially that saying these words but he's essentially saying the next or soft did trying to playfield If they were physical. We have more problems than we have. I did try and sue. But it's not working. He says we will be the tough ones. We can be physical but we can win games as well and now. We're coming to your home to win this game again on vacation that is as intense a public comments that i've heard in sports at alike. We're going to beat you and we're going to send vacation and your soft and you're not tough. Thought we're actually tough and we're going to beat your ass again. I mean that's basically what he said and no response really from you know. Julius randle had no response in derek racism thirty two. I ain't got time for that bleep. So we'll see tonight game five at the garden. The seventy sixers play the wizards tonight. Six three one have not seen the results in joel embiid. He's listed as doubtful for this game by. There's no way he's played in this game right. What was i wouldn't think so. The last woge situation was. I didn't see the world situation. The wo- tweet will give it to you right now. It'll be excuse. Me doubtful for game. Five he had nemo iron is right. Needed a spec to be evaluated further in the next day so that to me does not sound good. Doesn't sound great to have an mri. They don't give you the full results. They say that you doubtful. And then he's going to reevaluate does not sound like he's playing tonight now Jazz three one take on the grizzlies and the clippers tied to at the mavericks Game five later tonight as well to the baseball it was a late. Start for the mets in arizona. And boy things were going really well for the team. They were up four nothing. They give away the lead. Then it's five four in the tenth and then you've got the ghost runner at second as we know and then trevor may with disgusting walks. Got first and second and up comes josh rettig. That says well. You are the only man on the side. Whereas they're bulldozer. The right be alive into the corner coming into score. Now here comes smith. He's well game over well. Double was yet edwin. Blow as i say you know what y- did but you also had mckanie fumbling the ball around like the ball was made of greece Which turned a single into a double essential. And that's the run that comes around to score a tie the game. So you're right at wendy. As the blown save on mckinney. Just like drew we. Can you whatever the hell happened. Dominant spent finally hit a home. Run front door. Had a triple almost had a home run homer. What did he you know. He had a couple of what one for five but yeah but he's starting to hit the ball a little bit more little bit showing signs yes starting to show signs of coming out of it. I mean this is one of those games where you know. They should've worn them. I don't the whole interaction between stroman. Iroha that's the other thing too. Now narrow said that stroman was looking at them or something and then roha scott them all fired up and then the next inning all of a sudden all hell broke loose. I mean both teams responded after that. The mets scored right after that and then it seemed like the wake up the diamondbacks who've been dead for weeks now as team has been terrible. So whatever went on their got. Both teams all riled up an ended up. I think i mean propelling the diamondbacks to a victory. Well here was stroman esta. That incident woke up the d. bax and i couldn't tell you i did. Why don't you ask them now. Because gary and key. They've said yes it did. Wake us up. that's fine. He's gonna hit the ball. I mean i get it. But gary said from what they could see all he saw was that as strowman was going to have much video on it as they were going to the dugout. He turned a row. Housing goes over three. And that's got row haas all fired up. Oh i don't know now is interesting. We saw the game winning hit. Trevor may gives up that double down the right-field line. He was not happy because he believes that the ball was not putting play. It's foul still in my. You got whatever they saw the. I never actually ever think that that the ball was foul. And i actually tried even on the video outside. I tried to pause it to see like the ball disappears into the foul line. Which tells me it's fair. Yeah so. I thought that was interesting. That was take Okay Review it though too right. Didn't they that. I don't know if they did did they reveal did. Yeah so whatever. So it's a fair ball is what it is but that was his. Take on it You've got today. David peterson madison bumgarner. A three forty start. And then the mets play in san diego tomorrow night as for the yankees couple of big plays here because without clint frazier. This game is probably over sooner than it was the one to swung on a high fly to right not deep racing in his frazier dives and he made the cash. Oh my goodness gracious. Just say the yankees. John did the call on the fan. Really good catch with first and third and two out in the eighth inning and with the way the yankees were hitting that likely would have ended the game. The yankees would have hit a couple of times but nothing so the game stated three three. You go to the eleventh than he was frazier again. The o-on swung on there goes deep. Left does high then as far as a walk off. Bobby eleven game winning two run home. Run rasiah clint frazier. Rasiah goes downtown sterling. That's how frazier supposed to be hitting which was great. But i thought he posed in looked like you would have thought it was going to be fifty. Rosedale heaped thing barely got ripped that he was but you know both he and andrew har-. Npr's been hidden boys. I know and our needs to stay in that lineup man. You've been wanting that that but for two yet but for you i. It's been happening over the last couple of weeks. John carlos not hitting he was not in the lineup. last night pinch hit and didn't come through. Here was frazier thoughts. I of the homerun so good you know i. It's it's a feeling that. I'm sure that won't forget just because you know what we've been going through his team what i've been going through about to catch a lot of practice from two thousand and nineteen. I've really worked hard at my defense and try to came through last night because without it. Who knows Also aaron boone. The team finally snapping losing streak beating a team. That was red hot. Some better things across the board not close to where we need to be but You know an important day today to to pull that one out and a great ab thereby by phrase to finish it off. Gray by free lewis. Sesa the win in relief and the nearby open. Six hitless had some walks but six hitless innings harass strikeouts. Two series continues tonight jordan. Montgomery taking on shane mcclanahan. Okay Cardinals beat the dodgers three to at mondo sosa with the go ahead. Rbi single not good news for saint. Louis jack flaherty and league injury might miss significant time as beat the mariners. Twelve six time for the jared. Kill nick or kalinic. Update any idea what he's doing. I'm not so good. He was oh for four last night. He is batting one. Eleven great trades. Rodeo roy comes on the day of the ds blue safe here Angels beat the giants eight to one also the phillies hit seven home runs and beat the reds seventeen to three and stephen strasburg game yesterday with shoulder tightness. That guys always hurt man. Yeah national yet does but he is the day he got here but he ended up contributing in a big way world series championship final. So and vlad guerrero junior has seventeen homerun blue jays. Beat the marlins in buffalo five to one the houston. Texans sign running back. Rex bread the edmonton eskimos of the cfl. Officially changing their name to the edmonton elks. So they went to which i did not realize they went to the edmund and football team like washington did and this is the name they came up with. They're not gonna stay the football team. Washington there the edmonds and elks. Nhl is we know we are waiting for the islanders to play game three at the coliseum tomorrow night but in the meantime we might as well play this with some great analysis wing. Headman works it to sara lee. It's really crossed the blood step toward the slot other serenity with eleven fifty four left in the third to. I'm sorry. I mean they've michigan on lightning radio lightning up two games to none. As they beat the hurricanes to to go brady shea basically the former ranger remember brady shea could not get the puck away from sally and he had it on his own stick. Gandhi kind of fumbling around with it and then ends up putting in the back of the new. Yes he did. Jets host the canadians tonight. The golden knights are in colorado the morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer and geo. The car won't be filled again tonight. Four game five. We've seen all these issues throughout the nba with individual jerks. Doing things that are inappropriate. So don't do that tonight. I go and then route the knicks on be loud. Get in the hawks year in a way that is traditional and not over the top with insane vulgarities. Don't be spitting be throwing stuff please yet. Another one in the utah jazz office. Grisly series. where moran's family was subject to racist comments and things of that nature in utah. Another utah basically came out and apologized jami rant and his family offered and his family courtside seats and lodging and also ground transportation to the next game which will be in utah. So this there's these issues are happening in a number of different areas. And i do believe that team owners and and i do believe arena. Security personnel are doing everything they possibly can to mitigate the problems and get rid of the people and hold people accountable that are doing these idiotic things. So it's not as if nobody's reacting to it everybody's and everybody's reacting to it in a way that you think should react to it. Yeah so So but the utah owners new guy. He's taken over the team last year and he really has gone out of his way. So donovan mitchell. So's quin snyder. The owner the the the the player and the coach of the jazz to everybody's handling right away and john moran's family to their credit. Basically said it was. A couple of guys wasn't everybody. There are a lot of people that treat us. Great zoo said zoo said. Hey you know there was some people that were in our face but you know for the most part. Everybody kind of made us feel like all right. You're the the opposing fan. Except for jimmy. Carter jimmy but yeah but the fact of the matter is. Is that if you are part of a hawks fan. Go into the next game. You're going to hear it. Sure well only knicks winnings. Yeah i mean if the hawks do what they've been doing in this series and knicks fan can't say i don't wanna see clint cappella going to the middle of the court and stopping on logo. I don't wanna see that. I mean i always say the trash talking is one thing if you are on the back end of the trash talk and then you lose when that person trashed oxen your face and they back up that trash dog. That's the most embarrassing thing to walk off the court and say say night. We'll see next game that's all there is. There is a next game right. It could be a see next year typist. Trae young chance tonight. I don't wanna be here on. That kid. ever do all that kid ever does is play basketball. And he kicked our ass. Yes and we knew that going in by the way yeah. We told you they were going to have to play him with a group of guys to try to slow him down and you know he didn't have a great shooting game in game four but you know what he does and the ability for him on offense to to get where he wants to go and then throw the basketball to the guy that usually is one. That's how he sees and make some passes really a testament to how great a player in dickey was going to have a terrible series. I thought he was going to play well in this series. I just thought that the knicks offense would be able to keep up and then the knicks defense would be able to do enough to keep these games close. I thought they'd be the same team that they were throughout the entirety of the regular season haven't been able to. He's not a great defensive player on what is happening and it's been it's been written about talked about probably incessantly now is that his impact on offense is packed is impacting negatively. The knicks offense for the players who are playing against him because they're spending so much energy on defense trying to keep him from getting to where he wants to go and the thing to behold. I mean it's just there's certain players that have like the quickness and the ability to see the the course and have a few of the sport no matter what sport they're playing like james harden is off the hook when it comes to like understanding the game of basketball and seeing you're seeing it played at the highest level by james harden. I mean he. He's ridiculous yeah. I wonder if they just coast now. Let's say that. I do think that it'll be a good series against the box. I expect the nets to win but if they end up coasting like let's say they win that series in five two and then whoever they end up against in the conference finals because embiid is now her they coast there and then whatever team comes out of the west. They just coast. And it's even better than your sixteen and five prediction know. How are we going to digest. That team did what they're supposed to do. Now the only they all they can do is loose. I baby have to win win. And they're going to win as long as all three of them. Stay healthy things. Were funny expects. I still think because of the support part of the team. That steve nash was talking about in. Jerry keeps highlighting that they could win with two of them. But i think one of those has to be kevin. Durant would agree with that. Yeah but i. I just don't see draymond. Green say last night that the nets have the best offense will ever see in the nba. It's hard to argue with those three guys. That's exactly what we said. Yeah but i mean. Are we going to be looking at them like man. What a treat we were able to watch these three guys player. We're gonna look. Go dan this as if they were in blue and orange. We'd i really enjoy it. I know but they're not but yeah but they you know it's obvious you're on the basketball court playing basketball. I mean this is it. you don't. it's ridiculous. I mean they all three can shoot from three. I don't even think. James harden sweats too easy to cease to easy. I mean hopefully the boxer able to at least get i mean. Take him to six games at least because after that then beats hurt forget about it and then you're talking about anthony davis being out the lakers might not even make it out of first round then what i mean what. What are you have in front of the net now the other than just open road oversee honest. It's middleton and drew holiday. that's it it that that big three against this big three and you're talking about you are you're talking three first ballot famers. That are all healthy. And they're playing some of the best basketball they've ever put. Kevin durant probably played some better basketball at time in his career. And maybe even kyri the year. They won the championship. But i don't know these. James harden is playing the best basketball. I believe he's ever played because he's facilitating and making everybody else better. How many times last night that he gives somebody a pass right to the basket i mean. Of course i mean you look at his numbers in the first half got is behind his head so he is. I'm already preparing myself for this like even though we've had got knicks game tonight. I just already preparing myself for what this is going to be. Which is going to be you know. The knicks are out at some point whether it's this series next series whatever. And then it's just gonna be all about trying to find a way to die. They're going to have a ticker tape parade down. Flatbush avenue i guess. Is that what they would have it. I mean where else. What's he gonna be brooklyn flatbush right. Yeah but the right past. Barclays is what do you come over the next you come over the bridge or something. I mean could do that. The barclay is on its atlantic. Right so they can do that right there. Right past the arena started the arena and the arena. Something like that. I don't know. I'm sure that they've talked about it or i was planning it. They have to how come the mayors and all of this. Oh you should learn. His hat is easy beal for us. It's it's doesn't feel like a big deal nationally in the nba. It is a big deal. Your colleague here. It's still about the knicks. It is and it's always going to be about the knicks. You've you can't have them. Go down the canyon hero. It's gotta be in brooklyn right. It has to be in brooklyn. You can't put that parade manhattan fantasize to yeah we know you do has to be on flatbush avenue. There's just i don't know. I don't know why wouldn't be hipsters about your barista bars right. Wave everything about the team is brooklyn. Has nothing to do with manhattan. No nothing at all. Different world is completely different areas. It'd be it religious and see how many people show up for it. Sure everybody will just come out. And look what's going on out boys the most accurate and brooklyn's pre pandemic right the hell's going on out there. If the islanders went they'll have it on hempstead turnpike parkway. No they'd have it on hempstead turnpike right after you know. I know they probably started pirelli's right all even make fun man. I'm not trying to make. Just say what they would do. You think they would. There have to be a better spot. I mean i guess there isn't when you think about it they're really would not be a parade then hempstead turnpike. That's what are they doing the eighties. I have no idea anybody. Eddie you remember add where the islanders parade that they add parades when they won all those cops in the i know the devil senate in the party that was really awkward. That was ugly embarrassing looking it. Really just the devils would then end up. Doing it newark now. Because that's where they're building is but nobody remembered. I'm sure people tweet us. They remember if there was a parade for the islanders. And where turnpike without. I'm not. I don't know about it. So i'm sorry you'd would have to be there. I don't have to be yeah you would know. I don't yeah boom positive to babysit that day. Mommy and daddy got to get hurt. That's exactly what. I did a google new york islanders cup parade in a youtube. Video comes up from nineteen eighty-three of a six minute clip of a parade where it is hempstead turnpike hempstead on a half thirty thousand people after their second one. This is the article i'm reading. Wow right you're right hempstead turnpike and it. So what about the brooklyn dodgers when they won the world series. Where was their parade. That's a good one. That's a good one figure out where where the nets could possibly have. There's an recreate. The last time brooklyn won a championship. Where was that parade. I'm sure corners. No this a parade in that parade. I was fifty years old. that parade. Nobody nobody shows up to the parade they will in brooklyn trying to find out more specifically. Okay yeah so. There's five dodgers the nineteen fifty-five dodgers where they had their parade. I'd love to know it has to be somewhere where it ends near near borough hall. Okay that would be to me. If i were planning the mets brave which they need to now they have to. Oh yeah they have to start now to start planning a parade right now and recreate the brooklyn dodgers parade route from nineteen fifty five. Yeah but that was maybe near a field. I'm not sure that whatever. No be a cool thing for the borough. Wouldn't it be a great thing. A borough half. The islanders ended up doing it and they got a long way to go. But hempstead turnpike here. We come union. Dale where two parties happen i- boomer and geo fan everybody that pollen borelli's now be great. Be awesome each morning. Show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo used some al from people that are living in brooklyn because Boomer and i are not people who have lived in brooklyn before. We're throwing some stuff out there. Pretty standard ideas. Atlantic avenue. Flatbush brooklyn bridge stuff like that. You know i did think that maybe recreating the route of the brooklyn dodgers that route in one thousand nine hundred fifty five. That'd be kinda cool old history There could also be a building right in the middle of that is true. That is true. But it's basically over now with this embiid injury and the anti davis injury and the nets. Maybe the box win two games in that series. Maybe but it's over now. We can just put the nets champions parade. I mean really. You gotta get ahead of these things. Yeah opening. I don't know why the mayor is not planning this already. Age should hold a press conference and just announce it today. But i would do your. They should have this as a question. In one of the men debates. Yeah like where would you had the brooklyn nets parade after they win the brooklyn in the house. That's what i thought so. I thought yes that would be give andrew yang another reason to say something that everybody hated because when they asked him what his favorite subway stop was he said times square and people got all over him for that they said no self respecting new yorker would say the times square is their favourite subway. Stop i thought to myself now. Someone put me on the spot with that question. My favorite subway stop would be the none of them would probably say it was put on. Put me on the spot but like you can't say times square. That's a bad. That sounds like a tourist. I i would have to say right now for me. It would be anywhere anywhere along. Second avenue okay where they put new subway and or would have to say down at the world trade center and what they did there and how they replace that whole thing. It's a good answer. And how beautiful. That thing has turned out. That's a good. You should be advising somebody's guys. I probably just be like i get off work. I like my job right. So that's my favorite subway stop. But that's a good answer. You should be advising angel. Yang report of the yang gang the yankees. That's what you need to be. Direct yang for labyrinth of just absolute bureaucracy added. It's impossible let's go to. Mike at yorktown heights going on mike but morning guys are. What's up mike. what's happening. Listen guys. I think if the brooklyn nets a win they win the championship right right. I think it should be on the hudson river. We should do a boat parade. maybe katie. throw the trophy over to kyri awfully. That won't drop it. Could you imagine that it'd be believable. So recreate with the buccaneers. Did right exactly you know i did. Actually i'd have a deal. That would be awesome bridge in the backdrop buildings in the back. You'll be summer time up here so it's got to be the east river not the hudson river. Yeah we gotta be. We gotta be next to brooklyn we to be next jersey. Why would we want to be next to jersey. Not not dirty between brooklyn and manhattan. Yeah the east river right up the east river right there man on on my perfect i mean why not. Just have the have a boat parade by the way. It's a good reason to tell you that our boat party. The boomer and geo party is happening. Lake house and bayshore starting point on friday august thirteenth. Megajoule imagine that you have all these peers down here in brooklyn you could be you you start the brooklyn bridge park pure number six or five the one. Yeah you could do the promenade and then you start later this man you start right here you go. Right around. like governor's island all year. Need the brooklyn bridge manhattan bridge. Definitely that would be unbelievable. And you know. Joe cy is a yacht somewhere. Oh absolutely got who put the whole team on the yacht and there you go get the yacht up here from wherever it is. It's probably in the bahamas or something and mini or someplace like that could be in the mediterranean. Could be in. The med. Could be down there. And what's the mykonos mykonos could be or it could be in monaco right now. Maybe it's down in monaco. But get it up here just start. It probably will take from the time that that yacht goes from mykonos two governors nestle of won the championship. Right yes right. I think so. Let's go to caroline bayshore. what's going on carol. Good morning guys. How you what's up. Carol okay What am i missing here. Because when the yang when the mets won they play in queens. They had a parade in manhattan. It's the brooklyn nets there in new york team. It's brooklyn identify with brooklyn jersey. The knicks are in manhattan. There's a difference like the yankees are in the bronx. The mets are in queens gang serena manhattan brooklyn. They've been trying to build the brand there to have the parade there like what mike said know. Have a portrayed underneath the pros about the islanders parade was down there first. Foray was down instead turnpike. I went so nice. They had the players in town. Trucks town trucks like town instead trucks. Like today's it. I mean it wasn't planned so it was down hempstead turnpike all the town trucks. All the players are standing like dump trucks and stuff. That's love that. They won four cups in a row. Nobody can knows with raid was. That's how sad. It was true such a long time ago to as well and my pillow boomer. I'm sure happening. Yeah yeah you're right. I did have my head under a tall. I was not paying a alley right there in base. You're you're gonna come to the boat party at the lake house. Hope to see you. Yes i met you before. I met you at the social when you when the made a big appearance at the south shore. Oh it's right at all tees optimum store s a very nice. You just talk to everybody. That's right i do remember that carol. Yes well it's great meeting. Hopefully you'll see again. Yes we'll do art. Thanks karen you too. Yeah that's that's making appearances and everything. Yeah that's right. I remember that was for the afc championship game right. Before the pandemic right down on the south shore long island. I was trying to think what what was i doing at the south shore. That's right. I got paid to be there. That's why your mind got cancelled because of the pandemic appearance. You're so lucky. That's not that far for me. It was great to be man. I spent a lot of time out. Sure monan right across the street. Was the bayshore roller rink. Oh wow i was a roller skater. Bring those back. There's some roller rinks out their back. Or their yeah. I feel like there's no roller roller skate. Of course you could percent i. I can't rollerblade. I could roller skate. And roller split. Chicken ice skate very similar situation. Yeah i don't know that. I tried the the rollerblading and didn't didn't work for me mandy. The malls are going to be able to continue. You think people. Because i think the mole experienced still fun experience thereby buys everything online. I'll tell you the american dream over there that indoor amusement park that was packed. This past week wasn't oh hell. Yeah with bad. Weather and memorial day was packed awesome. That's good that's good to hear. I mean i think about going to a store someone right going around going into cinnabon or aunt annie's pretzels or something like that. Why is it always about food cinnabon. Anne's pretzels part of all experience. Is it not johnny rockets. Yeah man the or the. What is panda express. Sit down a little low main scenario. It's gotta draw the line this barrel all these malls i got. Yeah but if you live here you don't you don't do that. Yeah you can't. That's where i gotta drone along. I'm sorry okay. Listen it's just the pizza chain when you live in these areas just something that we're all allergic to area. Okay fine but it's still now. If i'm in a bomb in an airport and i see a scenario that's i go right. Yeah that that's fine are you. Yeah one hundred percent but if you're not in this area yeah that's fine if you're out of but i'm just saying it's a part of the mall experience. Yes all. i'm saying. I don't jump down my throat because i'm telling you that sa- barrows are in malls. Yeah but it would not be my first choice or second choice. Well i mean it's your question third. You're flying through kansas city. There's a sa- barrow and you feel like a piece of pizza. Aren't you going into the scenario in the airports shor in kansas city. Yes but if i'm here on the south are going to go to a panda express opposed your local chinese food. Yeah i actually right yeah. It's the same thing. Yeah not really not really. There is a drop off not as big a cinnabon instead of stanley's bakery. You're making good points. But yes i think i would go to andy in new jersey anne. What's happening boomer. Yo first of all. I wanna thank you guys. You make my day every day driving back and forth from south jersey for work but you're killing new jersey. Not what do you mean on your loved. Jersey proposed having a boat parade in the most highly polluted waterway. The united states is by by the way has been cleaned up. I don't know if you realize that. What about the bodies. Well i mean you want to look up for the bodies go looking for the bodies. I can't scott and i'm not machi new jersey. I'm just saying you can have a brooklyn nets parade up the hudson river. You gotta have it up the east river. If you want to include the brooklyn bridge now that that may be a problem you know. Maybe that's they couldn't wait to get the hell out of new jersey and rebrand brooklyn nothing to do with new jersey true. They could've stayed there if they wanted to. And they want it out. So it's all over now the the brooklyn nets. It's got to be all about brooklyn a jersey guy. That's a nick fan so well. Let's beat the hawks tonight. Andy really i mean it really vinnie. Rocklin was going on with any. Hey what's going on over. Ngo what's happening. Hey guys a couple of weeks before. The knicks star and i was worried about them scoring points. And you've been writing. Yeah yeah. I but my point. I'm actually truly. I'm a nets fan. I was just really supporting you guys. Thank you and and I think you guys jumping the gun a little bit. I i really appreciate you grin team. You got the hall of fame. Swing the history of the nba tremont grain said. This could be the greatest off. Take or is the greatest offensive team in the nba. History rate compliment understandable. You know we gotta worry about anything else. That could you know like maybe an injury. Maybe any you know maybe any miscellaneous possibility out. We're expecting them to be totally healthy. You know they didn't. None of them played the entire season so much time during the regular season i think now they can play twenty one games. They're going to be sixteen and five and you know that they're going to win a champ. Would you go to the parade vinnie. Will you go to the parade. rather i do. Live rockland so brooklyn is about Our little over an hour. It's a championship jets champion. I just telling you actually my fiance. That i would probably go there too. 'cause her brother lives in brooklyn but Yeah but i you know you gotta got to play out this buck. Series vinnie stop really view the nets loosen a box be a complete and utter travesty. I mean the books might give them a little bit. Ajit paulette. Skin real. And then after that with nbc. Heard nate davis in a west heard. It'd be that they're just gonna open road man. It's it's just it's straight open road in okay. But i've been saying this. But i just didn't want to be too overconfident. You as a fan of the nets. You're right that should be your approach us. I other hand. You could say what we want. You know what i'm saying okay. So that's your outside outside perspective. Yes the you just see this as a complete domination sixty five. I say i don't know how many more times at say it's sixteen and five and get the parade ready. Let's go. i wanna know really where they're going to have it. Yeah it's planning stages have to be going on now. I don't know whatever. The normal protocol is. Let's wait till we did team gets to the finals. Or whatever but just planet now i. I know that they're one with the final. Be the final would be. I can tell you so. And then they're going to sweep the nba final nba. Final schedule definitely already. Have that out so key dates the finals. We'll start the finals actually doesn't even say it says the july twenty second is the last possible day that the nba playoffs. You see. that's why the whole boat parade thing makes a lot of sense. Yeah it'd be great if you before ours so you wouldn't have to worry about conflict there right. Aren't having a parade. we're really having a hard hearty. Yeah i mean there will be a small element of travel that goes on. That'll be a small parade element. But it's a boat party so yes so go. Have a. you'll have that but it seems like it starts it. Would i mean we have to start with a couple of weeks before july. Twenty seconds of the last possible day. I guess that would be game seven which you know wouldn't go to a game center with the nets so let's go to bill in sicker bill. Bill what's happening. Wherever the hell circa villas whereas sickle louisville is south jersey about halfway between philadelphia and atlantic city lick sticklers cyclical right bell. So what's happening. Worst mistake i ever made. I was born and raised in brooklyn By the way You guys are great. You cover all my favorite subjects. Which is all sports and food and favorites. 'cause i love it. Thanks just I heard the comments about sa- barrows now again. I was born and raised in brooklyn. I almost stopped eating pizza. When i came to south jersey but Superheroes was my go to spot. It was right next. I school in benson ours. It's an old old italian family from the early nineteen hundreds. They make the best sauce. The best meatballs the pizza in that area at that time they franchised. But you know you kind. A downgrading scenarios is the best in the world. No but it still old style downgrading. I'm telling you farm in an airport in another city. Seamount man they went. They went to corporate put slice. Told they're selling out. They sold out. They made millions. Did what for me is a pizza. Consumer that's a corporate slice by slice it tastes like a ceo never tasted but it just different. You know it's like if you put a slice that was made somewhere in a small town in the tri-state area and samara slice next to it. I i would be able to taste the corporate toxicity in that sabar otherwise. Ibm you're right but when you go to an area that doesn't have anything that has the best in there without question percent. That's what i've saying. We can agree. On that. If i if i want a little slice of home and i'm traveling and i will be at us borrow at an airport so any port in a storm type of place. You know no. It's not it's good for. I like it. That's what it's one of those things pizza borrow. go there. It's like that type of thing. But i mean if you're here i mean come on if you're not gonna you're not gonna. They're saying that. I'm gonna go to build a milano. That's what i'm dr bingo all right. But that's that's where i always go. Yeah okay you cut your place that you always go to. But i think we're on the same page. I think we're saying the same thing. But i'm just telling you that if i am out and about yeah i get out of state and i'm in small places to go to a football game or go to an interview or whatever and i'm going through the airport and i see us a barrel i feel like i i'm gonna get me some new york slice of pizza all right. That's the way i take you. Just take it at a little too far. I'm not every time you just take it you. Just i'm almost in agreement with you but then you just take it a little to a new york slice of pizza. I'm going to have something that resembles and he looks like it tastes like it or differences. The water that's right under i. Same with the bagels. Yes you one hundred percent. I agree that yes all right each morning. Show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo sticking jerry yesterday because we had so many discussions about the astros and the cheating and we kept saying everybody's competing in baseball for the longest time. So john boy put out this long ten minute video about the sticky substance issue. That's going on in baseball. That's now being talked about. Publicly by managers inactive players sticky balls sticky balls sticky balls to create the spin rate which is something we've mentioned and how it's getting out of control and whether it be rosalyn sunscreen or some other stuff and whatever it is but nobody came wise. This would nobody cares. Well you know. There's a whole youtube video about garrett cole and his improvement from when he left the pirates to the houston astros to ultimately that three hundred was at forty or twenty six million dollar contract that he got for the yankees and his spin rate. Somehow he was able to increases spin rate by cheating. Well the point being somehow he did it. You know cheat and even trevor. Bauer talked about it now. Trevor bauer and garrett cole. Where teammates at ucla could stand each other. So i then even trevor. Bauer did it on purpose to show how he could increase west balls balls. Yeah is it. Rosine and sunscreen is pine tar in sunscreen. Guys love to powder their balls. But it's like here. We were trying to basically crucify every minute of the houston astros. Destroy them but these pitchers are just you know so what happened in the cardinals game. That took the guy's hat right pissed about that. Yes well leash it was. I don't know about anybody else. But yeah full. Shield said he was the one who sorta open this up. Do we really wanna do this. We really wanna talk about to expose cheating. But why fans don't care. Why is that because we're selective in who we want to destroy. That's why that's why don't have a better explanation. I'll show you my balls when i get them tomorrow. All right. that's wait till the bathroom. Not here she's not your ball first of all of the subject matter that you guys talk about. Our newspaper are all in the newspaper. We talk about current events. I mean ask you this jerry. Since you are the big net fan here on our show. Where do you think the nets would have or were. They going to have their party nudge. Air parade we. They've won four games can be from raid on flatbush. Don't know where we're meets atlantic over there by on center. Did they have a boat parade in east river underneath the milwaukee bucks cart. Yeah i think they should probably recreate whatever the fifty five brooklyn dodgers did. That'd be an ode to history. That's probably what they will do. But i mean now is the time to plan especially with the city reopened. And everything's a lot of people talk about sticky balls then the nets parade. I'm surprised interested in that parade. They've won four games. It's clear road get started at lee road ahead started at city hall. Get the key to the city there. Great and then walk across the brooklyn bridge. That'd be nice about that. Now it'd be speedo which do s speedo speedo speedo. I've been telling you that the nets go to win a championship for how long now a couple of weeks sixteen five twenty one games. They wouldn't championship and they rode off into the sunset very good. What do you got jerry. You you by home. Serve the best call for heating and cooling relief visit home serve. Ny dot com. They're not at twenty one in five but four and one so far are the nets the first round of the playoffs. The right wing does the shuffle against four yet behind the back moves right in the lane ticket across jamming up top to harris driving. It left in the paint. Dump all for to heck slam perplexed. That is chris. Carino was the hands down my sixteen of twenty one. Excuse me that six sixteen five is what you're calling at four and one through the first five is the nets takeout. The celtics one. Twenty three one zero nine last night. The big three played. Well pretty big. James harden the triple double thirty four ten and ten kyrie irving nine fourteen shooting at twenty five kevin durant twenty four three block. Shots all went. Well here's the one block shot. He had against the pending against the past ran the full length of eat. Everybody down no look pass from hard. And i did. I mean come on. That's that's all star superstar hall of fame basketball. Jerry they are funded they are afraid ivy. Okay we got implant parade faranoff. Here is steve nash. Wyatt's working with these three even though only thirteen games together whether it's good or bad performers whether it's cohesive or not i think it leads itself to more growth lawyer standing more cohesion and then some of it is just torrential players out. That's pretty much eh. Hearted at the gospels bridge Right come across into stat nile interesting. Then go over the verizon day into brooklyn shutting down a lot of roads but it's a nets since championship. Yeah i would. Just keep it all in brooklyn i it's too much getting gaza's nice now after all the construction but yes then you're going through sort of new york. Harbor pass liberty island and all that the point being is there are new jersey people who are nets fans because of the optimum the history of the nets around. Yeah you couldn't pay me to go to a parade out of your mind. No not no not any after they win this championship. Or you're just to be like this is what you expected. Well that's part of when they went out and got hard and why. I was not thrilled with it. That doesn't take away from it a little bit. Sure i mean it. It's fun to watch. But i thought they could have done this without him. I said at the time would have been more fun because brian greene. Little harder would have been a little and they've won four games. They've done it yet. Wow so i know you knick fans you wanna do this and you want to distract from what's coming up tonight that's fine. We're on that. We opened the show with that. Not trying to distract twelve wins away and you still gotta go through and the bucks beat in the sixers comes out of the west built like. He's not going to play in the conference. Finals banged up pas. Beat the lakers. One fifteen to eighty five management devon booker had thirty lebron twenty four. No anthony davis and chris. Paul did re-injure the shoulder a little bit. So don't know what his status will be going forward for game six which will be in los angeles and the nuggets beat the blazers in double overtime. One forty seven to one forty. Now last hour. damian lewis fifty five in the last hour. We talked about the nixon. The hawks and clint cappella. We played those clips. Compelled talking about capella rather talking. About sending the knicks on vacation here was some of the reaction or lack thereof of yours. Derrick rose asked about capellas comments on thirty two years old on never talked like they're my life and i'm not gonna starting now once clang capellas by star talking crazy and then yeah i'm sorry to hear. What do you think the youngest ages were. You start saying i'm x. Amount of years old. I'm not putting up with this anymore. Forty seek has the. I think the same thing like i. I think it's different as a pro athlete. Thirty two is in its statesman different context. He's been in the league for twelve years. Yeah he's won. Mvp he's been around a lot in today's day and thirty two. But i would think he would rather say something like i've been in the league for over a decade that's fair is opposed on thirty two. That's still sounds young to me. you know. Usually when people say like look at them sixty five years old for crying. That's that is true. I'm going to give you the entire exchange. It's twenty five seconds. This was randall. mark berman. Ask him about capella. And then another question in the middle capellas comments. He said okay. They're coming to put you on vacation care. Don't care and bigly soon that you did hear about them though. Just do not care. We're not focused on every do as so when asked what we gotta do as great book though. Why would i give with clinton care they care. He's pretty funny little chippy towards the game. Yeah now it did right a championship game. Three two and they came out and poop themselves in game. Four so. I don't know if that means anything game five tonight at the garden with the hawks up. Three games to one sixers wizards tonight philly up three one jazz. Three one on the grizzlies. Tonight you've got the clippers and the mavericks that series tied at two and two Quickly mets blew a four. Nothing lead mets blew a four three lead. Mets blew a five four. Lead one of losing to the diamondbacks and ten six five josh. Ross the two-out game-tying rbi single in the ninth off edwin diaz. I blown safer dazzling josh radic. the game. Winning two run double in the tenth off. Trevor may down the right field line. I go back and watch the replay and there are angles where it absolutely looks like. The ball is foul. There's one angle and even keith says it looks like a little white does pop up so it is what it is. They want blues in the game that they should not have lost James candida go ahead tenth inning. Rbi double but For not marcus stroman. No decision six innings. He allowed three run homer in the sixth. The paving smith he also got into it with ross after the fifth inning. And so you had that whole scenario as well. And as for the yankees. They wound up beating the rays last night in eleven five three. Clint frazier the story. He had the game winning two run. Homer also had a big catch to end the eighth inning with runners on first and third and two out otherwise tampa likely would have won the game. The new york bullpen six hitless innings Just real quick. I'll give you aaron. Mcghee clint frazier just in terms of them. Getting the victory the catch the home. Run and snapping losing streak. You know. I was just trying to stick within myself. I had a plan and approach because kitchen. Which is he's really good. And you know. Obviously things went my way. And i think there's a lot of people that are happy that and that's at least on the home run. Had an ice bad flip and always good and yankee land as they are back in winning side of things they are now thirty and twenty five the race fall for just the second time in eighteen games. There are thirty five and twenty one tonight jordan. Montgomery in shane mcclanahan are the stars will have it for you here on the fan. Also of note. Stephen strasburg shoulder tightness left his start. Nationals braves yesterday. And what else can i tell you jack. Flaherty of the cardinals and oblique injury could be out for some time. In vlad guerrero junior homered in the blue jays one of the marlins seventeen four guerrero with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomerang zero game with arizona diamondbacks so be featured on youtube channel and the john's collusively on youtube right and john franko will be in studio. I'm good thing they're promoting it. You mean like you. Want john frankel. Gianfranco don't get them on or something. I john franco is always great off the air. And then when he gets on the air it's like he's very samson. Dirge took very careful. He's very low energy and depressing when he's on the the area's phenomenal. How would you describe him. Ow exact same way that gio did a you know on the air not the greatest low boring. Yeah he's also like sad which is not cinema the last time we had him on. He's super say he was really sad. The having problems or was just recounting. Great moments in mets history. And then he got to the piazza nine eleven home runs the never got. We never got him back and he was just sad the rest of the interview. Well you said. John franko today on youtube. Yeah and then you see him on his instagram. Ever see on his instagram. He's making like all sorts of italian dishes and stuff. he's like. Oh we got the mood. He's he's cooking in his cage. And he's doing the italian stereotypes. Then you get them on here and he's basically like sad eulogies you saw hara was back yet. Right he did. He was walking around with a bag yet. He was complaining to me. That joel was he talking to himself. Not hundred no we stopped and then he bolted when somebody it was funny because is guy ended up being a mets fans. Who would have recognized. John franken john franken was basically. He had his hat down and sunglasses on trying to hide from everybody. And some guy on a bench recognize me and he goes takes off his back. I was like you think he'd left you hanging a jio. He goes see You know the thing about it as g. You are now officially involved. I mean that's just the way it is. This is the way it goes. I love john frank. I didn't even know he was doing this. Yeah so today at three thirty. It is streaming on youtube. Only and you've obviously still get the radio call. of course. yeah so who is he working with. So it says the mlb game of the week live on. Youtube will feature scott braun and john. Franco live from studio k at mlb network. So they did that. Al studio k. For strikeout studio k. I would not got that. Very clever and then luiz gonzalez and steve. Gilbert live from chase field. They've studio whip over there. How many studios do they have studio. Bob beep right so luiz gonzalez. He is Who believe he's on the diamondbacks. Broadcast and steve. Gilbert is a diamondbacks beat writer. So they'll be at the game and then these guys have been studio k. Yeah yeah the only reason. I know why luiz gonzalez a broadcaster there now or at least part of the teams because blimpy because blimpy went to the i told you about the show lippi yes. So blip is a children's show at. Sabrina watches this guy as the pits. This blimpy loves them so blimpy goes to blimpy submitted. All the cartoon character now. He's a man he's wrong that's right. That's everybody own this baseball field. It's just the worst. But the kids love it so like luiz. Gonzalez is showing blimpy. Had a hit in a batting cage at the diamondbacks park.

True story look so blimpy pooped on his friend own. Yes he did before becoming blimpy so whatever. His name was then. That's the you know the guy pooped on his friend and then he morphed into blimpy because he then obviously was not working. I think that's like what show don't get noticed in that world for your friend like like this isn't working then. Yeah he went into. He went into the children's stuff. I mean what was doing when he pooped on them is hanging out. I mean they just sitting there.

Yeah they don't wanna stick blip that's what they wanna do is is blimpy a good looking guy al. No he's like a peewee herman type. Yeah oh boy yes same vibe. And there's there's there's people who apparently yeah. There's so. I didn't know this though. I i brought a blip be on the air and then a bunch of dad's called and said the looked like facebook groups all over the place a like desperate moms who wanna have sex with lippi and it's true they do they get into him for whatever reason they like.

Oh definitely wouldn't be able to police the ip but here's the thing we love. John gianfranco. I had a great time with him. I saw a fishing tournament. Not that long ago i saw him in say korea great conversations off the air. He's phenomenal when he came out last time he was said. I don't know what to say was like well maybe personal issues. Something already does not have any personal. Money was morose morose. Now you're calling him a rosette that interview and i'm not the only one who thought that and it was surprising to me because i was expecting a pep in the step fun johnny franco that we normally get that day.

Get ready to fight another co host belly to belly. Yeah i know. And i also got a talking to the other day. After about the whole you know the cluster again. The other radio morning shows had to sit down with that believe really. He's created quite the firestorm. It was an email and had to go out the whole thing. yeah. I don't know it's just hasn't been smooth sailing. Let's put it that way. Go jason manella gone jason. Good morning guys. First time caller. I loved the show.

Nine hundred ninety gene was found and everybody figured out was going to be gene therapy gene therapy and maybe some day. It will be gene therapy. That will lead to a cure for this disease. But lo and behold billions of dollars raised fundraisers by families and everything else and a drug hits the market about four years ago and completely changes. Everyone's life so it it. It takes a lot of money and takes a lot of science and then the science is. What is going to extend or fix the problem. And cystic fibrosis is living breathing. Proof of that and what it's going to take from these families and it's just amazing to me after all these years after all these people since lou garrick dealt with this that there's you know there is movement finally because finally that ice bucket challenge. Put it on the map. Yeah and it's it's frustrating. I'm sure for the families. But you gotta just keep raising money and just keep supporting and just keep trying to make a difference and i know. That's what mike in bethel's doing and certainly that's what the frady's families is doing. That's what steve gleason is doing. They're all trying to raise the awareness. Oh good thing for major league baseball to continue this and to support this. And from what i have learned about a ls your body shuts down but your mind remain sharp for most of the disease and that's why a lot of these guys with their remaining time you know have all these ideas are working so hard and have the help of everybody else because you know they use what they have. Which is their brain. Rain is is is trying to get the word out there and trying to help and trying to help those who are going to have. Aol s in the future. And it's just it's remarkable to watch and it's inspiring. It's not unlike our friend. Mikey and what he's trying to do You know in his paralysis world. I mean that's what it takes. It's unfortunate but the you know the bravery and the i don't know just the absolute i mental drive to do what they're doing and how they're doing is is even more remarkable. It's in itself. Then i think the amount of people that are supporting them. They're supporting them. Because of who they are each the morning show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo the show talking about the knicks tonight and the click cappella comments and how people thought that i touched the money using the knicks. We're gonna win in five than what is clinton cappella doing with the money. I mean different teams. Got a two game lead and they've already won three games not touching the money. Well it wasn't like he was doing for the season started like you did or the series this series started. Oh so you're telling me that. This girl what i said giving an opinion on the nixon. Five is not as bad as clint capella. Who was on the hawks talking about how we're going to go into your building and send you on vacation. We did talk about a three hours ago and we talked about how it's going to be used for motivation. There's no question about it and this is exactly. What coaches do coaches. Hope for this kind of thing. And i'm talking about in the case of tom. Tim and i'm sure that nate mcmillan probably police. Why don't we just do this this so they'll all say it doesn't mean anything but at the end of the day it touches everybody's pride. That's exactly what tom tiptoes now. Going to be trying to do. And i'm sure he's been trying to do with the knicks and and hopefully the knicks were respond in kind by playing good basketball and not trying to take somebody's head off and play hockey on hardwoods. Sh so i also told you in the opening segment that i got an invite to the game from wfan. Wfan zone pat boyle. Hey oh pat boyle him. I don't know all that well. And i thought it was all strangers inviting me to the game and its plans to watch the game out with a friend anyway tonight so. Us seats her. Yes so. I've got the seat location now. Him down and by the way. No people are not thrilled to hear this but he ended up asking big zoo ago so now big zoo is going to be at the game and he was at games three and four go so well so that i don't know if it's going to work out but i got the location you want to guess where pat boils gonna be tonight You know the garden the seat locations with that. I number means yeah. I do so the way you're asking me. I'm assuming he's going to be in the one hundred section okay. So you're you're saying the one hundred. I'm to say in the one hundred and the one hundred. You're asking me that and the way you're asking me is leading me to believe that okay. Listen i think anything less than a four hundred seat or better than a four hundred seat. Four hundred level is quality song ago. He's in a two hundred hundred level so it was a one hundred and we've got a two hundred star. Wfan wfan pat foil to one hundred. That's star right there. That's a one hundred to one. Two hundred is nothing to sneeze at us. They say okay. So eddie do you have a guess as to where. Wfan's pat boyle will be sitting tonight. Courtside back yet. Yes it is.

Yeah it's Jerry was on channel four news and channel. Seven news interviewed him at his house and there were a lot of things he was speaking about was what experimental drugs that he wants to get pushed through took to try. Because these people there's prognosis is not good and but there is some experimental drugs out there. And jerry was really. He wants to push for it one of the wanted to. You're one of the big things. Under donald trump's administration was the right to try experimental drugs when there is you know kind of the last resort type thing. I don't know actually where that that whole aspect of this latest administration is but i'm on board for that definitely because they're they're trying to push for it and It's a terrible terrible disease and And if it's out there these people are willing to try. Anything i'm So whatever anybody could do to the call off into you know. Call your congressman or whatever but So look for jerry tonight. He's got a great voice still. Do you still sing. I saw him play friday night at a restaurant by us and He's got he's got a walker now But he says not attacking my voice shit. And i'm gonna sing and i'm gonna worry works at borelli on saturday nights on route three And we've seem goes on friday nights and bluefield center. That's awesome great thing.

You gotta check them out listed for sure. We'll send you letting us know about that. Sounds like it's going to be a pretty special night yankee stadium tonight. I mean be a lot of tears tonight. Yeah for sure to be very moving. And i know listening to nancy frady's With sweeney murdy was it gave me chills. Yeah i mean the the dignified delivery the the incredible loss and then continuing to fight in honor of her son's memory is is really what drives a lot of all this that that feeling that people have no matter what they're dealing with but in this case it happens to be a ls and they have a very well educated extremely passionate speaker on behalf of nancy phrase. So tonight is a seven. Oh five star checking to see if it was one of six forty so it's a seven zero five starts. I'll be checking checking out. Yes for sure early to hopefully they carry the national. Sure they will. They have to do with that with that particular story. That's about as good as it gets the morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer and geo as we get ready for game five at the garden. Hopefully no fan issues. That'd be nice. Talk about spitting and beer throwing and popcorn throwing cursing in unison and all of that stuff but a nice clean knicks win. No issues that too much jerry. Recco is here with an update. What's happening jerry brought to you by brothers. Waste systems creating a cleaner and greener long island's to learn more visit winters dot com. It's funny bring that up. Because i was just watching on. Replay the tnt show from last night with Charles barkley shack and draymond green. And because of all the fan issues that there have been someone dug up with barclay on the sons. I'm not sure where he was but he was a visiting arena and clearly. Someone is yelling at him as he's at the foul line and as he's dribbling the ball he turns and just screams. Shut the bleep. Up turn shoots makes the foul shot down the other way. It's actually very funny. Yeah all right. So nic's hawks tonight. At madison square garden the knicks down three games to one here are the comments that caught headlines or made headlines yesterday. This was clint cappella talking about the knicks. Essentially being a soft team did trying to play physical activity like if they were we have more brompton behind after like detroit through but it's not working says play this in the arena before they announced this. This is the one i would play. We can't be physical but we can win games as well and now we're coming to your own to win this game again. Send you on vacation like what you if. You're running the garden entertainment. Wouldn't you just shut off the lights right before. You announce the knicks line. Do that put that up on a big screen. I mean it's fair game right and just say here. They are your new york knicks and then the crowd would be going crazy. Better go out and win because otherwise that'll to be miserable if they lose. I mean you can't get cold out like this and then get punked and lose the game. It's already terrible so just try to do whatever you can fire him up. We're coming into your home to win and send you on vacation. you gotta love it though. Love the honesty. Derrick rose been around the game awhile. I'm thirty two years old. A lot on never talked to air my life and i'm not going to start now once clink capello's by start talking crazy. He's talking crazy and the exchange with the media. would julius randle capellas comments. He said okay. They're coming to put you on vacation and don't care don't care and bigly dies soon that you hear about them. Though i just heard about it. I do not care. We're not focused. All we gotta do as saw asked what we gotta do as great. But why would i give with clinton that was mark berman if i was trying to yes going to ted send you on vacation. I called you a wuss. Face kind of interesting would ra rather than what is going on with you and your play. Why hasn't it been as good as it's been in the regular season. Why why ask about cleaning. I guess it's natural to ask about says pooh-pooh you are a loser. Softy missed the softy truck yet a response to that julius for seven eight nine ten minutes. You have to ask him about that. I'm sure they did was. What do you think tom tobacco does does he do anything in terms of rotation than i mean isn't going to be charging us. I mean we can get a little guy. yeah i suppose. We'll be charting at the nick. Nick game will be over right just games. It's game at seven. Oh five or seven thirty at seven thirty so perfect. So he's got the game will be over about six thirty. He can have a little lunch and then he can start charting. The game at seven thirty. It's got to make sure your after scores them at game. Julius cling cappella said to put on your manzir. Go out there you soft son of a bitch. You have any response to that. Let's see it is seven thirty seven thirty seven thirty alright so plenty of time for him to chart the game for sure knicks. Down three games to one subtle lakers one fifteen eighty five nuggets over the blazers in double overtime. One forty seven hundred forty and yes. The nets did house the celtics one. Twenty three to one zero nine. Kevin durant twenty four kyrie irving twenty five and thirty four ten and ten for james harden durant. He says boston and was only five games. Boston played hard bread. Coastal all game. No matter what they play hard all game and tried to win every possession so that's good for us that we're going to up against somebody who didn't just lay down and they didn't. They did play hard. They just weren't as good here was kyrie irving he says we are making this thing. Work where a selfless group We make sure it's not just about three But we do understand that The expectations on us to perform and to lead our team our nba basically so they're into the second round. The conference semifinals. They'll get the bucks game. One barclay center on saturday Some of the other pieces that were discussed joe harrison. Bruce brown ten points a piece in this game also tonight. You got the sixers and the wizards we should find out about joel. Embiid throughout the course of the day. He is listed as doubtful with a knee. Injury had the mri waiting for the results. They're up three one the jazz up three one face. The grizzlies clippers are tied to two at the mavericks but they won the last two games after dallas two games one and two in game five in los angeles later tonight. The late game for the mets in arizona as their winning streak came to an end on for the mets as well we are the only man on the one side whereas a feline into the corner coming into score. Now here comes smith and he's gonna score as well game over two run double and a game winner or josh riddick feline. You were talking about The kid with the blonde mullet and the shaved sides. Yeah this josh. Rettig has quite the mohawk o. s. tons amazing colored diamondback red shave sides bird little bit. Yes a little bit. That's right away. The nets right now. Plus one seventy to win the championship. You put five hundred dollars on ninety eight hundred fifty back. Who wouldn't do that right now. That's that's that's eight hundred and fifty dollars you get for free just like that. It is is. It's not a foregone conclusion by any stretch with their way is not a foregone conclusion i do i do. I mean i don't think it is. It's one hundred thousand dollars. Seventeen hundred seventeen hundred bucks just like that. I mean just for the nets to win the title. Milwaukee is not going to be speaking of that. Did you see this. This hedge fund yesterday bought two hundred and thirty million dollars in amc stock offering. Yeah i know right. Then they sold it in the same day after the stock doubled. It's the fastest two hundred and thirty million dollar profit. Ever what did they know. I don't know what they do. But it's the it's the one of the great moves of all time. Mudrik capital mudrik mudrik. Mudrik sounds fishy talking about. Let's see. I don't buy any of that stuff. There's something crooked. They're i see it now. I know a lot of people were tweeting me about it today. They want us to talk about it. I was like it's too much sports going on to get into madrid capital. Trevor may gave the game winner. He pitched the last inning. He wasn't very good luis rojas. Why him there. And that spot is a guy that's been a leverage that we trust and You know situation there after using the out of the game and you know we felt may To the dealer is at wendy's who blew the save to help us by billy me and ask a question. So trevor may is pitched nineteen innings for the mets is given up twenty one hits and six walks. Not grace nineteen hundred. I think it's awful. I sorta why i'm mike. So we trust him in a high leverage situation. This is what you manage told you. I know what he told us. He's he's got a support his players. He doesn't believe that the game should win over style. Still in my. Yeah they got they did. Look at it. Enrique larry trend on topic. Here what's going on sam. Hey what's up. What's up james. Hey man I don't know why the trevor may keeps in. Does he have news. On the reese row house or something like that. What is going on here. He's got twenty seven pitches the night before. Why even bring stuff lugo back if you're not gonna use them that's the question. And he was asked about after the game said. They didn't want to put seth lugo back in a high leverage sideway. Shin his first game back. Then i mean. I didn't like that answer. You let you ever made for two weeks now. He's been throwing helicopter slider is. He can't get any pitches over the plate. Terrible absolutely atrocious. And then i'm watching. I got a pregnant wife sleeping upstairs. I can't curse. I'm trying to rip my going on. Sam yes he's right though because he he got paving smith up he goes. Oh two on them. And then he's on curveballs. All over the place and then come near the plate and that was to me it was a big part of it. so the mets lose whatever. They're twenty six and twenty one. They'll play this afternoon. Three forty david peterson madison. Bumgarner are the starters in that game as for the yankees a normal. Start the stadium where the actually beat the raise. We've heard the frazier homerun. Perhaps this was the bigger play for clint. This happened right. Field in the one to swung on a high fly to right not deep racing in his frazier dives and he made the cash. Oh my goodness praise. You just say the yankees. They sure did that. Was john sterling on the fan. Then he wanted for the yankees where the while as our they win. Five three frazier with the heroics i on the catch a lot of practice from two thousand and nineteen you know. I've really worked hard at my defense and tried to make it something that you know. People can't talk about for the wrong reasons. And and then the home run which wound up winning the game. They'll good you know. I mean it's a feeling that. I'm sure that i won't forget just because you know what we've been going through his team when i've been going through ball got out in a blink. Now just do it more consistently now now just get more hits more big hits stop striking out and everybody you know everybody wanted to well. Everybody was you know. Believe that you should be in the lineup. You remember at the beginning of this. Of course oh. Clint frazier has got to be. There has got to be there at this. how. I feel about indoor. You're right and do with a home. Run last night and giancarlo stanton not in the starting lineup. he did pinch hit Did not get a hit But they gave him sort of the night off today. Series continues jordan. Montgomery shane mcclanahan. We'll have it for you on the fan later this evening. The new york bullpen last night. Six hitler's innings to hold the raise at three runs on the night. Couple of injury notes from baseball. Stephen strasburg showed tightness left the game nationals braves and you got jack clarity of the cardinals their ace and oblique injury. He could miss significant time as well. And vlad guerrero junior home run number seventeen in the blue jays win over the marlins. They played that game in buffalo From football the houston texans sauna. Running back rex burkhead so no longer a new england patriot and hockey while we await the islanders and the bruins which will be tomorrow night at the coliseum. You're the lightning. Beat the hurricanes last night to one for two series leads so they take that lead back to tampa and you've got the jets and the canadian slightly golden knights playing in colorado against the avalanche time now for moment of the day which is brought to you by casa migos to kill a customer goes to kill a brought to you by those who drink it so met legend. John franco was on the show today and it brought to mind too many of the same guests on various shows. I would describe the as an issue. I guess you've there on the radio. Too much is is. His thing is really the fault of the shows that keep calling this. You know like just starks. And bernie williams. Yeah well we call johnny franken. You guys calling come on guys. Call them out this morning now. It's totally like it's such an insult. And i can imagine john you driving in your car. Listen to this. I tell you what come to work early in the morning in the city. Look over your shoulder. You made the less. Johnny's get hit me with a loaf of semolina that four thirty in the morning as i'm trying to come into the building you scheduled to go on with boosted maggie. Today i'm going out with the little guy cribbing the little guy today at three o'clock vent to o'clock on the fan. What a great rebranding opportunity for that. Show craig the little guy. I think this is something that i don't know. If spike eskin was listening. I see a billboard craig a little guy right company alive the built ford tough toughest studio each the morning show with boomer asya sit in gregg giannotti boomer and geo solids police escort the game. Five like he did the other night. Probably not think then maybe lesson learned on that one so would that be the new jersey state troopers that that brought him over over. Well it was. Yeah it was new jersey state police that brought him over and apparently when you across state lines someone has to be alerted in new york to take over the escort and that didn't happen. The new jersey police officer just took them all away in there and then he got out of the car and the umbrella forum and the whole thing. It didn't look great. We like robbie on excited for everything else but like the whole thing about being here and getting involved in new york is like fully immerse yourself in the craziness and then when we see somebody trying to cut the corner like that. It's like a new york guy. Are you saying that. Rob solids bucci. I'm saying that maybe is you so very well kept. He looks great. That's for sure it could be some bussiness and entitlement there. I don't know. I mean d- do you think that someone came to him and said hey if you wanna go to. The game will get you an escort. And he just didn't know any better guy. Yeah find it sounds great like maybe maybe that's what i call. Shanahan has gone on for him. Out there in san jose. Maybe wherever they are with santa clara santa clara or you think that he was like l. Go to the game. But i need a police escort because there's a difference like if he was totally naive it was like. Oh yeah sure like somebody wants to give me a police escort. it's great. I miss out on the traffic gets in a game. Johnson has a helicopter they could just fly him over to the Bad weather it was raining was yeah well they wanna make sure the head coach of the jets safe. She'll judge joe judge. Get a like a police escort. I didn't think he'd be the guy like driving an uber before he got a police escort. I could see him driving a honda to the game. Parking in a parking lot and penn one hundred dollars to park like like a nine hundred ninety eight. Honda civic throwing a keys somebody. Let's clear this up. Dan in mount olive dan. What's happening you know morning morning. Talk shows like yours. Don't get breaking news very often. And quite frankly i think it should have been moment of the day. What's going on with the wasp. Boom you get on al all the time about traffic and missing stuff and you're worried about getting your sleep. Come on yeah. I know i know i know it sounds it. Sounds very hazy. I understand that dan bomb. Explain to you what's going on here so we plan hockey long island and and fortunately now why some of the games before eight fifteen and if the game is eight fifteen or earlier i'll be able to play in it. I cannot play in a nine fifteen game because sometimes they don't get started until nine thirty you have in the past. I have when when they're in play. Now i've played. This show already played in a game this year. All right but we had an earlier. Start time so. I was able to play in the game. You know. we're probably the only team that pays upfront. We're probably the team that has basically all taking takes care of all financial responsibilities because they're chasing other people that doubt but they don't you know they don't have to worry about that with us because i always front the money to take care of the initial you know things so we could make sure that always do the right thing right exactly but now this guy. Basically who runs league good guy. I'm the saints. Bad guys. good guys got with a lot of different teams on different issues. Disney and the people who know the league no his name. He told randy who is biased. General manager. here don't worry about it. This is when the seasons going to start. The season started two weeks later than it was supposed to start and then it was like okay. You guys get this time this time. And then then the chime started the change and then all of a sudden he's blaming it on the facilities so therefore i'm wiped out because i can't go and play at nine fifteen nine thirty at night just can't do. It can't do it and they're missing out because you're a big star to not have the big star. There's a big problem it's whatever and then you know i. I'm on the text read. Who should be playing where you should be doing this. You know it's almost like bureaucracy. Bs crap bike. Do what i tell you to do. If i'm there but if i'm not there i can't do that. Yeah so all the games now going to be that late no i know some of the games will start coming back to a be a little bit earlier because when some of the other venues open up bill. But i'll be able to play. I can't believe you can't throw your weight around enough over there to try to do that. Get the game moved up. It was the facility is not available. You can find another facility. You know what this is. You're a problem solver problems. Don't stop you you solve problem. Yeah but you know what. I basically put a lot of this on my nephew this year. So he's he's he's pleased. Blue is just so painful. You tried to pass the torch down drying and like so for example. When you pass the torch down to garner with the foundation. He took it and ran with his macy's been amazing. Amazing job just fully all in just tremendous right. You passed the wasp torch down to randy. I try around said its foot on fire and now it's now there's a think she'd be playing in asking. The guys on the team should be playing condition. They should be playing. I'm like how it works. Come on randy. Let's go so talking all this nonsense. Sputnik thing up so that's not breaking news. I'm still on the team. It's still my team. But she's the question of when i can play. Yeah all right On long island. It's be lie. hey Speaking about tonight's game the starting lineup came out. But i hope rose and gibson is back on the bench because i think that's been destroying in game three game four. Yes i mean. So he had two things happened. One obviously noelle's injury which put him to the bench and limited minutes. The other thing was that said finally enough with alfred. Peyton it. If i saw them go back to what they did. Most of the regular season. Now i know for peyton was was not good. Don't get me wrong. But as boomer brought up the other day this team was used to playing that west. Certain way it had success that way for a long period of time and tips freaked out and somebody at. I'm telling ya somebody at the garden said look we gotta get paid off the court because knick fans are screaming and yelling about him but you know at the end of the day i also listen the also simple. You know ten should be doing what he thinks is doing. I listen to the fan. He's when i'm saying he's listening to somebody in the garden. You know it could be somebody in the higher ups the the analytics. We don't mean fans not about the fans you know. My my thing too is like i know alfred payton hadn't played great and you wonder about his confidence and tiptoe knows him obviously better than we do and he knows the inner workings of the team better than we do. My point was. You're playing a point guard. Who's going to drive. Who's ever covering him crazy. And you can have that. You don't have one guy to do that so it's got to be a collaborative effort to try to stop them and in order to do that. You have to spread the minutes out. And whoever they're putting on him is having an adverse effect on that players offense at the other end of the court even though trae. Young's a terrible defender. You know right out all night long right at whoever is on the ball to one on one. Trade i just. I don't know who is starting lineup is going to be. I don't know how bad noelle's foot as well we'll we'll know wants a series over and all this other stuff but To me the way this thing had been built in the way that they had one was the rotation that they had and then all of a sudden typical said. We can't have this rotation anymore. I gotta just basically exhaust grows. Who just told you is thirty. Two years old you know. So i got exhaust him. I got a plan thirty eight minutes. Maybe that's the best way. They thought they were going to be able to win. By having at least a guy on the on the court that was going to score because elford payton was not going to be that guy. But i think it did upset whatever momentum and whatever rotation they had and it really has adversely affected the guys layton games ben in texas. What's up hey boomer and geo Dies first time. Caller longtime listener Quick story for you i Just moved down to texas from new york I've been to two baseball games this year. One was on april ninth in arlington. The other was may nineteenth at arlington. You guys know what happened on those no hitters. Yeah it says screen here but yes no hitter so i have been to eighteen innings in a row of not baseball against the rangers by buddies will not let me go to another ranger's game in more. Well now you gotta pick like you got to see if the streak continues. Whatever the game you next has to be strategic. Exactly i got. I gotta i have to pick a lineup that i get maximized early innings of no hit baseball. So there's definitely some staff. I've got a poll here But i think it's got to be some type of record now now. Did you feel because we always talk about no hitters. Not being special. Because there's been so many of them when you're at these games watching that second one. The two went and saw did not feel especially because he just saw one last month. Well i had no idea there was even a no hitter going on on the padres. Join us grow game until like the seventh inning. And i just kinda wake looked like a like all right the second one was. I'm a huge yankees fan. I'm like okay hard since day. One my dad brought me up as you know he was a huge mantle fan. And that's where. I came from by So i had to get to a yankees game. They had a three-game series here. And so i picked the last one by chance. It was the probably the coolest game i've ever been to. That's great so it is special. It's still special especially when you're eighteen. Does that's great man so best luck in if you put three of those together. Somebody's going to have to come into a thirty for thirty on your something. Some sort of documentary each the morning show with boomer excite you sit in gregg giannotti boomerang and geo as can be hilarious. Let me try this limited disrobe and watch porno on the plane.

So trying to cook gumbo back home foods that i was missing and i was terrified. Making gumbel also had a couple of different biz. I try crab biz for. I am in the teashop. Florida in bloom milestone on a budget. So i got no no kind of paper to support it especially talking like two thousand. Eight crappy market was really building. We'll pricey and man a looked up on the internet how to make it in one another hook homegrown brain bed in my own. All the you know my test subjects for better or worse right back to the city a a boy for like manufacturing industries in things like that. Everything's going to destroy. And one an enterprise zoolander going through was production on my family. Found has a lot of history and fashion alcohol name. Susan try to capitalize on these billions and billions down without untapped though opponents since then helen beck de especially with russia. Okay hopefully five beers man brothers having young man following a minute nothing no your advocacy fellowships. Thank thank you. But i i got question so you said that you you you like the craft beer and you went on the internet and found out how to make it uses from near your wrong. That was it was arts. Though eight it was different it was assessable. Had this much affirmation like bus. So zip files kessler plans. They the recordings type of breaking it. Down even came across a couple of michael jackson videos. Like the bruins michael jason. A lot of that stuff. Some of it was entertaining. Some of it was just straight up but a lot of it was coming from these case. That was so entrenched in passionate about just decides a crash course me eighty dollars up in kamal flair on and of course and just started on festivals. Day the michael moore still roy. He's the seats so he looked up recently. So that's interesting. And i think i'll has his scholarship. Okay is based is a link to that jackson brew. Well i never even heard of you. That's my first. I handed finalize. Somebody's pretty much like Anthony baines that kinda predate proceeded like those like the reality shows and ron johnson. Goethe's traveling different brews interesting now. John you had the black labatt blue is that craft or does that always labatt. What by when i was younger. Is that a craft beer or the weight out here in seattle native true. That's true but trying to traverse some of the canadian market out there. We can try to get an that market. Is going up the pains. They democracy search ready to despite getting drunk on sundays. Research before away to be on taste on that taste. Mattel work on my My cousin to get us because he goes to school new orleans working on it. Send us some cajun because we had. We had a bear fez. But we haven't had a sense of. I've been working on she. She been slipping on. I got an opponent again. Don't have to devon owner backup. Bruise you guys. Cave currently currently have on on or distributing products in my still better all brick and mortar space. Okay i'll go. We got a lecture with a company based in sterling for john. So we hope our now. We're we're in place the district products into ford overseas in the us louisiana. Close the north carolina. georgia's night. What at what are the bruce. Us's before you do a very folks don't have become the market in about two business weeks but it's has a resume well because we're telling the story is throwing black bourbon able federally recognized recently A lot of different jazz musicians thinks actors from it. So orleans is this parliament influence in design and We also have. Vr can't stay trademark right now but it's a sour beer not as big as most salads but the female market. They counseling john. Hours to to man. I don't know he's not trying to trying to build. We work edged out on up. Got to know your demographic speaking of sours though john. I did a sour about two weeks ago. It had traditionally Drink our either. But i happen to pick up this particular sour because i was drawn to just ab. I'm like a high abc guy or higher but ten is great And i picked this particular sour because it had a high ab just wanted to know. Kind of your take as brewers like does a ab impact or take some of the sourness out of it. Or how does that chemistry work to still make it this hour but also you know. Give it that high b. b. the barnes out of it but trying to most important sign of it is a war. Depends on the amount more than ours. Going to be a lot less impactful because often everything got like sophomore delaware in asia and in some kind of old fellow bits reduce acidity and more acidic gonna come out with a like a profile mentioned. Ab okay all. He might not know as the beer. Yeah that's that's the sweet spot for today. Learn something new sometimes get tired offering salvage because sometime between the fall house. Ohio person out. The first time is looking to team up a budget. You might scandal away forever. John just made me think like you said y'all are distributing but your art of is the beer being made in virginia that how so. How does that work. Ause new orleans waters probably different than for junior water. It is as you have the before you start before they start making it for junior like how does that. How does that work to make it. Consistent with which you guys do down in in the world just noli reduced. Assaults of is a reduction in salt on the answer to the firm. I mean it's the batch raden retreating the water. Just because time i want supplies mississippi represented by the time you get this fall down. You got all kinds of marrow's salat har- even you know. Fresh bread is well renowned because data trittin's to make a nice fresh bread is breathable hartness. Co-boys everything majority of sandwiches. The biggest -brate know all these things kind of math is virginia. Yeah they got a nice war table on storrow. Virginia's like thirty minutes from dc. So that is a specific flavor for an different salts. We won't be an emily that product on on so rock. No best will pretty much all it would be like. Why shots Really risk a kind of market seasonal things that kind of push boundaries whereas the Patrick grew get access to different states in of trojan. Just martin hannah product or what if civil acts to be slightly different like i was getting distributed from virginia and then i was the come down in the world and get get it at the tap room. Would it be a little bit different. It would You wouldn't be necessarily like sify. I stayed for consistency purposes. Even if we try to like immolated it wouldn't be on the first batch segments third man because reprint water chemistry. I miss but most most like season. They might notice a difference right. Okay okay okay. Gotcha thank you out now. I think. I think i think this a question is actually for. You might get in terms of Merchandise bail before stability for a backup. Best way beams. Wait greensboro north carolina. Okay yeah yeah you can. You can definitely pick up teas and all the merge caps glasses by tober fest dot com Could pick up on the story of black robe like is asked me definitely get merge okay nice so and john into joe and that's a great segue segue but i would say the same thing as a good segue just to hear how you know. John m mike that relationship were was was built and how it you know how they both collaborated for black. Overpass will answer that question. Because you sound like. He's not sure so. To tell the whole truth you thanks for myself johnny. Franklin mike leave out in rice. He made some report. Or that's true. Let me i don i forget. How do we get we. Great cop-out mike arkansas. Because others we just got businesses always providence eight voyage other just because we both same mission especially in this age without brand a lot of like getting involved with industry you know we'd always trying to increase economic opportunities and we ought brains at that on the same kind of pets so nationally Especially what does meaning like Flyable drivable to enrich distancing. Ain't nothing i in this day and age to reach out to. Hey we doing this. If we meet in the middle we meet in the middle. Don't just come to whatever we did. you know. I don't talk much about The past festivals. I've been in fresh fest but You know that didn't end well But nevertheless i think that's what we first i linked up That's pulled us in you. Were like one of the first. I think we had like this. And this week we got. We got the best number highest number we could and john and The cajun fire family was was one of them so that was cool but we had. We had We kick it around like previously like the whole twenty seventeen twenty eighteen before that and we just were trying to connect the dots whichever way we quote and that's just happened to be The first the first time. But i know john. I like we've done projects together. from radical stained with donna resistant served with the radical stains crew in new orleans. We regard our panel the black table black ten. Which was real cool. Which go worked with celeste. Beatty on that and classic looking down in new orleans so we done man than than going strong for quite a minute good and we decided to do black tobruk dressed He was definitely the first person i called outside. It's the list. Because i was in north carolina to time and their new harlem bruce out. The city is right there. Space way. right there. dirtbag bagwell's writing the tribe area rally daum and say it bill Charlotte down the way with Rob montgomery from bruno. Feed more. And i'm sorry. Think more than. I'm a gummy So you know it was it was a it was a no brainer and on and an atom from say red studios flew in or they drove right Yeah so they fluent drove in and we did. The collaboration will. We're always doing together. We got about three or four different coming up at twenty twenty one so it the network is is pretty solid minutes tight on board for everything we we put out. So we're always okay. You said it's always twenty twenty one and what a what type projects do you guys got coming out. If you can tell us show might media taste of some of them. I made some of them may not even have been Thought up yet. But we're we're doing a a pop up next week. this isn't it. Twenty twenty one. Mrs next week at the mercy park in los angeles lactobacillus pundits yet. So who can help with the la team. Sheena lester roy week and be out there for a whole day is sunday. The twenty nineth in twenty twenty one we have the black initiative that we launched. That's kind of a manifesto on just shown People of all races. How of support cramp latte. Crab brewers What's ways they can get. Involved case table will just questioning. Hey economic guests seated movement ac- with john trying to do. Can we support. I'll know we kind of put together this manifesto for that which is at blacks over fest. Dot com black over dash fest dot com. Twenty twenty one. We'll be doing our third black table black ten with educational series that john. Kinda anchors spearheaded starting in the wall Right before cova gadget to do the second one in saint louis and pipe that out but did out Ideally if we don't get a live one with With twenty twenty will do that. Virtual bring in goes is bringing the in the black craft community and just keep that conversation going. Actually trying to elevate the next level of ownership equity away from the denied diversity inclusion conversation Which is which is Which is proven beneficial for most of the community. No ma connected with resources on how to start a retired distribute those on the capitol get that money apple gone and instead no labs or fun or cool in a help allot Get the brand. Beat the brand out that you may. But i give you wanna get up there and start doing the thing. John and those guys dawn distribution in their own product and controlling the margins and You know so after. We're we're putting to do. I'm glad you may there in either. You're john mike can answer this question. What makes you guys pick. The city's like how to our city's pit you guys to north carolina. He said next week is la. You you're gonna go to saint louis. What makes you is pick. The city's 'cause both from new orleans in pittsburgh but i mean so go ahead with that I mean it's wherever there's you know that's a tough question I can tell you specifically new orleans. John is there obviously beautiful city of other black You know we we. We kind of piggyback. Ss break them you. So that's a no brainer north carolina's before and mild black breweries in one area. That may not to know rain. We were trying to create a circular economy template of with easy for the majority of the laboratory get to the facility and as a part of it that new york away all display was heavy black craft beer community and people part of the team or support. What we're what will vote on cole. I'm glad delaware lake grabber. I'm just saying our emails and her. Name's mike messed up. Talk last episode man. I was like four times. does not stuff. I think this is more more. Your personality Yeah i was. I was at statement appreciate you. You touched on something about the next week's pop up you're going to do in la 'cause. I was researching and looking on instagram account and noticed that there was the black profess l. A. and i'm like yo. Is that a you know a chapter. Or is that a link to a black over that was held in You know in in north carolina and is your goal to To continue to maybe try to have a teams local to each state or How would you wish your vision behind that or how come about. That's a good question and then we just have yet to change to combine the two were accounts but la black tober. Fest is our whole original again that's the microbe family Sheena in royce sheena less roy shocking So the hopefully get the word park festival next year. Tap the nfl. We'd like to do to buy tober fest next year. You cities onboard north carolina in l. a. So obviously you would be present for that but as these chapters of as these new states. Open up like wh how. How are you kind of Is there any kind of all morning are you. Letting them run it the way they want to. Just kinda like demographics Or is there kind of like a a blueprint to keep it kind of consistent You know we haven't really put that together as a as a template or plan or not because all wayne you know the same group of people go on this defense workers in different city. I think at the time right. Now it's manageable with cities Before cities max If it got beyond that in assam. I think we start considering Wide open man. If you guys ever wanted discuss Collaborate on something of your town. We city minutes were who will nowhere nowhere. We be talking. Been to delaware in our. Brian kind of goes into different. Markets saw relationships from nine. You know we could talk and shopping. Up see was when we can. We can do the grace of great memories here. Some some black tolbert fast in the mail next week so okay but mike golic reliable enough and address and sit in delaware. Four of four. Ezra okay how far is that from philly right right thing. We thirty minutes so we got we will to everything else so obviously in the industry that you're in where tapping into as a podcast You know it's all as obviously all about relationship building and you know in networking and things like that and it seems like you're you know your you're center circle with by john Us less And you know Chris black frog all those people You know you guys seem to have hit it off and or have had some good good solid relationships Would what do think has kind of been that glue. That's really like held you guys together or you know. Keep that support going to keep it as strong It's been as i've noticed just from y'all you know from your events in your pitchers in your You know just kind of just you just just following you guys you know we all genuine one. Another thank god. The main thing is you know we're all willing to come the bat whenever someone's in need Our platform is not super big. But it's it's nice size platform and were able to l. stagnant the big got going on always you know coming in. I know you know the relationship with chris black frogs one of my my best friends We will go here if i sit down and have a beer and i see he's busy. He's usually one man show with his tapper. I get up. Waas glasses Of clean tables is is really whatever and that never was about Any type of recognition or any type a Anything other than just the support love black people that naturally have back so You do that for a couple of years and you know you make friends you make lifelock since man that as long as you keep the business going things on up and up it usually lasts forever main so that's that's one thing i'm very. I forced out the network continues to grow man. Full outside of myself have connected outside of black culture and done amazing things. So that's that's the framework that which on up the best is cool that we won't see happened in the beer community where again there's a there is a strong solid black presence that we all think were parties network with go out and you are paying every way that we can in in the industry which is which is to be expected but it's at a base his place where there's a resource Is called the time. And there's a lot of information and know the relationship strong in that regard also as basil might not like well. My question was pretty simple in terms of like the black Black tober fast is events and stuff like that and they and brewed. Everybody came together. But except for like chris bruton zone. It does so. There's some simple a similar initiative something like Black beautiful that Individual brewers actually brew their own going forward or is that something always going to be a collaborative issue in terms of cloud of experience between The brewers yeah that's a swap that and Both models are too. You know. I i love the i love the concept of blacks beautiful You know the way they put it together that could that could that could very well be the case for best. We'll know early early. Part of twenty point one How do we make do we do both But but we definitely wanna keep that in the black sheeting. That's not something we really want to spread fan across the you know. It's nothing against any any other brands or any other class or any other projects that that do that but nobody wanted in for us by a. If you want to use the cliche order and discontinued the grow off at ac and see how we can get it you know get an essence fest bigoted No greek fast big all black festival. Notice that we can actually no. We can't any so young. Wind freaknik was a big festival. So is this a family oriented now because all the time i listen biweekly customs talked about what happened. What people have too many beers does become the free probably good. It definitely get there. Were i appreciate your movement Just simple fact. I started this beer journey with the podcast. So it's been two years for me. But i was apprehensive of going to the fresh fest last year. And the three of these guys like kind of force not force me but incurs me encourage me to get to the beer fest but once i got there. It was just like oh. This isn't white. Men don't aren't the only murph because that's doing this. It was nothing but like a sea of black folks and it was like that like it was like. Oh i'm all in now like i'm my toes in the water. I'm jumping all the way for war. And i've been sizes just appreciate you like just network and bringing like just hearing you say like this is all about the people together and let us know. It's not just a a white male dominated steelite so thank you for that man. Like y'all wanna a really good job with that and keep keep on doing what you're doing because you converted me and of my my crew. I'm going to own going on his burge. Pittsburgh or an ad not changed my whole life before he knew it. he was on the woods at chad. I'm like i rented the expedition share costs. This much. you going. let's go. We might rowlett on here. The cast money in my head. I mean airbnb. Let's go right before kobe kobe. We were like i was like. Hey when are we going like mommy. That helps the first one was in august. I was like it was july. And i was like no mind. That's the difference s. That's the culture. And i appreciate just being a car to that. That whole thing was good. And that you're gone you're going forward without. It is beautiful thing for sure you all cover more and more people that were black with the black tober festive. Turn out how you expected to it. Very sweet we thought we were actually gonna have a couple more than but It's it was so tough time kellyanne. Excellent question venue setup and It great great venue Rocky mountain event center great group of people when we had a contract in place with them. that we both understood it was in. It was in the contract that this could this could go left or right depending on the state regulations and run -ticipant opening up or they had anticipated a new set of regulations around the seventeenth. I think and they were pretty confident that they were going to get a larger capacity fora having indoors and out and that didn't happen masol it was like we got like the fourteenth and they were like don't look good man So we were indoors. We went from the parking lot. And then we finally found outdoor any which we kinda had something lined up. We knew that that was a in considering with covid and considering no how well we were able to social distance in space we had twelve reese.

Yes so for the good thing about black tober facets it's towards the end the year So that's that last quarter that potentially that's when we were able to kinda got lucky with that that little wave. Unfortunately the numbers went back up for infection and whatnot with kobe. But at the time it was kind of like you know things we're going to open up completely then it shifted but so my point on that is we have all of twenty twenty one basic learnt to kinda so we're planning for a major festival on as many people as we can get Hoping that you know the the the vaccines and everything Take place getting place and you know. We're able to throw a full functioning event. And ideally we do it at the event center that we were in this facility. Brand humongous is really nice And we will do the park as well. So art will. Our plan is to fully fully plan for in person. Festival will know the good thing about that is as we can. We can gauge. By may june july run still have enough time right and and put it into a different format or scale it back or whatever may may need to do so. That's good. that's good. Yeah well will be exclusively just out just in l. a. Or will you be it back in pittsburgh or what we we don't know i mean still again as a lot of things up and i know north carolina's the base as it stands now just got a little mecca of black and it's all again to schedule. Open twenty twenty one. I think three actually comes. That's that's a nice like i said. Convenient place on state of north carolina is outstanding There's always new orleans. That's that's the to the three locations that we have a locked in. Yeah cool away and look around and so we'll see earliest five six hours. I'm there right but new orleans never in. So yes all as new orleans time. Yeah that's fine with that all week off work see the world world. I said new orleans. La new orleans anywhere anywhere. We'll get i'm mike. Our our our me with that. You had we budget it in right.

Got you know a big. It's like a yogurt spot and everything like that. I'm just thinking of that. Place is what location wise. Where would you like to think of Like for venues to do something like a like a beer fest In new orleans. I just thought that place like you know there was a lot of people. After games kind of congregate award area. Next time on. i one so it. Just naturally thrive is up and good. She could walk around. Got all kind of falls and alexa.

Because i gotta do a beer festival. You can't try to deal right right right now to make in making these these festivals more is inhabited center strip for people that are flying ron. Let's say no these these transportation's expenditures. I think there's a market for it. It's just got to be all the shit is relatively new. We all right folks. I think you'll see some companies really doing a conventional ways of oven into the new norm. It's just like how nine eleven was where you could just walk on airports and do whatever you want to airport you. Couldn't i think. Kobe is going to change. Is the new normal is gonna be here. We'll get back to work but the zoom in these string yards. Only your is. Everything is such an advantage that people didn't even know that we had didn't even this accessible. So yes we'll have that combination like we. We ended up bearing the land make or interactive amongst of people. Who aren't close this man. I think like you know like look at all the companies that do all different collaborations and really have you pop century brain know that we really do extra spark of energy right took retouching golding mesa all inch entrance fees lay ships and now we keep some some ownership of it right. That's the most. I don't wanna run away with it and leave us behind that. We are the benefits. The benefactors Over the percent over should mhm nothing under threat is not running thing that keeps it. All kind of protected is the fact that were diamonds and go right but nobody was work. Because it's too much right that's true. I'll go and gotta get back accustomed to understanding what are worth is on. One of the major factors day keeps us keeps kind of suppressed a bit underneath the mummy. But of s the thing some people they think they're worth less than what you might think you're worth is and they'll take a lesser amount. So we got everybody. Not worth is like johnson diamond's golden not copper and bronze we give you diamonds and what we need to be paid in as such so the other people ask trying to just accept the copper rightly they fucking everywhere. I'm never regular papers. I'll rather have carbon browsing that you deserve golden egg try set like those of like you know supply chain so you know. They got all kinds of delivery industries that people can take advantage of beer just around it. Right writing. got all geared toward route. She got like service industries.
