"What have what a piece of advice that you would give to aspiring producers in the space a- boy 'cause you're both caitlyn and producer but focusing on to producing side. Yeah i would say an put the work in and listen to where the industry is going in. Where were the instruments going. It's as the mayor of the art and artists. Yeah it is like when. I love island. Uk while exercising afterwards for like forty. Five minutes. i talk to manchester accent. That's a weird workout show. It's actually really good workout show. I would say listen to the voices that are emerging the young voices in particular because in ten years those are going to be fully formed products. And you've been championing them to try to latch onto those voices as early as you can and develop your relationships because the best way to grow. Podcast is by going on other popular podcasts and emerging podcasts so i don't necessarily think the be industries caught on to that. I think that's the best sort of marketing strategy that you can have if you're an absurd. Podcast is gone as many other podcasts as possible and just get the messaging out follow the podcast feed and put the work in due time over a couple of years. I think you'll see the fruits of your labor question as always come from comes from lenny by the way. I'm amazed with the facility with which you say the word podcasts which i always struggle with on ad reads the plural podcasts. I can say podcast when he hit the tea at the end.

"As promised at the beginning of this show. I am joined now by. I don't know if i can call you old friend. Because i think it's i've only been frenzy for five or six years but a friend. A real friend. The executive producer of lebatardshow previous guests of the meantime show featuring lenny i think two-time guests Noted browns aficionado. That's what we're going to talk about. We're also gonna talk about sort of the top of the afc afc in general mike ryan. Welcome back. I can't believe i'm back on. This is exciting. Finna minute spend been feels scandalous. You did did you do a. Afc north preview with me. Was that the last time you were on or yeah which would i think. I didn't have seen north preview with you the year before. We got good but thought we would talk. Yeah i haven't been on this podcast for a minute. Well known as podcast since we've actually been good. Yeah i there's a reason for that but No i going into this week. I saw at the top of the show talking about the packers for sort of newsy. But you know the afc in the top of the conference and sort of which teams have had the best offseasons drafts and the idea of going into the browns going into a season as browns fan rear. You're not only a favorite. But i don't think it's a controversial favorite right like you're not going to hear people on stake saying the problems are over hyped. The browns don't deserve to be there. You know in the playoffs offs. I stake but jenner just generally i think that amongst the nfl community there is a consensus that the browns are not only a good team and a favourite and we'll get to our conference rankings but also a well run organization to the point. Where even if things do go wrong and you have bad luck and there's injuries. Whatever baker regresses this team. You're talking about the same conversation like that. You talk about the the bills now or in their own division. The ravens teams that. Were you expect them to be good. And that is as a fan. I just wondered wants to know before we get into the actual team. If that makes you wary you're nervous or if you now have a place of real confidence well i do think i have a a notch of confidence in that they a clear the hurdle of the pittsburgh steelers as you know i haven't hope is the biggest thing could root for in a now. We're doing that later. We're doing that. Okay those who don't know that was the mayor of east town accent which we'll talk about later at the end show or i go saying about hope it's great out now nipping in the bud. Don't know what year it. Nobody wants to hear that accent okay. I don't. I don't know what you're talking about back to the season though There is a sea change in the water. The cleveland browns. Beat the pittsburgh steelers. it's It's certainly a new feeling for For the cleveland browns. I don't necessarily think that they're better than the ravens. Because i have to see it right okay. i'm not going to be braggadocio. When it comes to full humor humor. I think the analytics kinda disregarded linebackers much and i think maybe andrew berry figured that out and be at. It's unfortunate that it took a heart ailment to get one of the better linebackers in the draft. But i don't necessarily think chad henne he's gonna be turning the corner on jay. Okay right if he's out there healthy so i think we really desperately needed to address issues that we had in the secondary and linebacker and i think that plays favorably not just to our general team but against a quarterback lamar jackson who just broke us over his knee with a scrambling ability. Got an even look to throw more than half the time. So i i still give the ravens a benefit of the doubt because i need to be able to see us clear that hurdle same way i kind of needed to see us beat the steelers because i still of have that loser's mentality but i do get filled with a fair amount of hope when i i hear. Nfl insider talked about the cleveland browns. As if they know what they're doing that's very new to me meena. Yeah i think that's a the ravens and the browns. I had a lot of trouble deciding who i think's going to win the division. I probably won't decide for sure. Until august. How i feel about it but i think the browns undeniably have better roster top to bottom however like just when you're looking at every position every position group however with the ravens in the passe. Well they have a better organization. Better coaching better quarterback. I still think they have a better quarterback. But i now look at the browns and i'm like actually kevin stefanski is navy a better coach like i. You know maybe a better offensive play caller. I definitely think he's a better offense a playcaller and that's that's different and that's the kind of thing where suddenly when you're comparing these two teams. It becomes a lot harder to pick now. You did hit on something that the browns did. That was a very deliberate going into this offseason so so last year. The team finished seventh in rushing view a tenth in passing very good offense nine thousand nine hundred rushing defense seventeenth in pass defense. I actually thought they'd be a little bit lower in pass defense. Frankly i was surprised to see that. So going into this offseason. Everyone knew the browns are such a clear neat as really nothing on offense. We could talk about that in a second except for death but this is a team that needs to get better on defense particularly at linebacker as you mentioned and in the secondary they also however and and i think this is kind of underrated at the end of the season had to address. Pass rusher. Because i think olivier vernon getting hurt going into the playoffs like a overlooked storyline. And you saw that with myles garrett getting doubled or washed out against kansas city so they hit that in a big way you know. They signed tackle mckinley. Who's been okay obviously. Didn't live up to his draft status in atlanta and then did evian clowney which i think is a massive like i think at this point. We are drastically. Underrating djiboutian clowney as an nfl community because of his injuries of the last two years but him getting to play next to a top end edge rusher like he did in houston and getting to be used as a chess piece and moved inside is tremendous for cleveland because his upside is much higher than the vernons. What you can certainly make inroads and in sealing off the edge when.

"Much for leaving your lovely. Itn's reviews really. They make my day reading them. They're so awful. And i haven't gotten questions and well but you know what let's get some questions now. I've got a great guest. You can help me come. Wasn't good answers injustice okay. This is a long question It's from ben. J arms and it is about the bengals and talks about how there's been a lot of criticism for the bank of the bengals for taking jomar chase over panama sewell. Now that the draft is in the books. Do you feel like the bengals did enough to address the o line signing rally and picks or will joe burrow. Spend the whole next year on his back again. should they have taken stool over. Waddell cons- Per mia chase considering that they already have parker in fuller. Oh should the dolphins have taken over while yes that to me is the more divisive one. But 'cause i chase. I feel like i've heard good with the bengals. I i really want here. You think. I think that you can make argument for chase Ultimately i would've taken sewell. But i don't think it's i don't think it's crazy that they went with tamar chase. I think dolphins should've taken tool after he fell into their lap and that i am surprised. More people aren't saying it feels like the dolphins haven't been criticized for that damn i. I think you're right. And i think it's kind of interesting too. When they switched up their offense lines situation right before the draft. I mean they draft a they could have bumped robert hunt in from tackle to guard where he basically played as in college and then they could have had sewell. They're just locked up their offensive line. I think we'll probably should have been the picket either one. I think the interesting thing was. Cincinnati is how they're run as a franchise general. Everyone knows they're kind of cash. Broke and stuff like that were. How much was this jomar chase. Pick to build equity joe burrow for you know them building the program into their second and third contracts and the fact that that has to be a conversation with their fifth overall. Pick where they have to think about that kind of stuff right brain big brain stuff. I mean god. They got some time until jumper has to decide whether to pay him Yeah i don't know. I don't i heard from justin jefferson. The joe burrow has a lot of swag more than kirk cousins. So you might be right Okay chuck atlas. Wants me to rank the quarterbacks one thirty to check. I'm gonna do the. Qb draft with nate tastes sometime in the coming weeks. So i will do that then. We will draft quarterbacks again actually want to go back and see how we draft last year. see dumb. We were d. r. g. o. ninety-six pre-draft. The rooms are pretty constantly saying the steelers are gonna draft najji harris. Can you make me excited for this pig. Given how terrible this align is right now. oh. I want to say something. Nice i mean. We like nausea harris the player. I think he's an awesome running back. He was my rb one. I loved watching him. And i will say this Something that jumped out to me. Just as watching alabama tape was like. I know that the bama offensive line is really good and like najji obviously had better run blocking than trap. T. but even with that caveat. I still think he was better at turning negatives into positives and erasing blown blocks and being creative. And so gosh. She's gonna flaunt in pittsburgh. But i was really impressed by nagae. Harris is like both an all around back but his ability to get north. South even in adverse situations was really impressive to me. I agree. I still think they lost someone to rate agus to like filer. Who into The chargers and at the end of the day. If you're trying to improve a run game probably the two worst ways to do it would be adding the running back in a tight on. Who is in a special blocker right. The you would have made more of a debt in running game if you respect. Those picks on off its alignment and that really is what makes it hard for me to kind of digest this in think. Yeah the steelers are y- these picks are going to be what turns the steelers around be positive. We listening to the question he wanted to. I know what. I can't not kidding. It's a tough scene decastro so k. Decastro is a really good guard. The problem is you need five guys to block. At the datsun. Dotson i they like him. All right last question who this is long lil skittles. Okay so little. Skittles try to summarize it says you know. Obviously people talk about how you shouldn't pay running backs after their big contracts bad idea. Most of the time coming. What i'm wondering is is it worth it to pay wide receivers big money for their second or contracts. Obviously their production doesn't fall off but they seem to be replaceable. Feel like that money would be better spent on defensor line Big reason is over. The last twenty twenty five years. How many mentors had wide receivers making top five to ten money. Seems like not many should have looked this up before with all the talent recent years at wide receiver rounds one. Two three would teams be better up upping at wide receiver yet. Just we should take no one. No one ever give all the money to the quarterback now I think so. I think with wide receivers in the aging curve. You're able to get you know i. I don't have the figures in front of me about win wide receivers peak..

"Think they'll have to be better because this is going to have to find answers in the passing game. They're gonna have to. They're gonna have to figure something out. The one thing i wanted to ask you about specifically is that wide receiver room. It's a weird combo of wide receivers. Because they're all vertical guys. And i understand people are light. Yeah they're vertical. Guys are gonna run play action. They're gonna hit you over the top but you can't do that every passing play and kath. Lock it s quidditch. I mean i don't know if you've seen average but average basically played in that baylor type system. Yeah out western michigan where you're not running real routes you know you're you're running. You're reading the cornerbacks leverage and then running into space in the quarterbacks just kind of putting the ball into an area. I think there is hope that they'll one title lockett will be healthier. Those kind of underrated storyline last year. He was a little bit banged up on and off and that they'll sort of with this new off so they have the rams shane walters and other offense coordinator. And you know the the seattle very open about the fact that the offense was a bit stale and they weren't making adjustments in the second half of the season and that's the whole thing by the way this team everything if they're a contender or not whether they can you know by with blacks of the rams niners ken. They solve the problems at their offense. Couldn't solve last year of the passing game in particular and cover too crazy right so to me really depends on you. Kinda hit on it is ken. The can the wide receivers the existing ones. They also had joel. Everett sneaky impactful addition. I think the lack of Tight end production down. The stretch really hurt them on this front as well ken. They diversify their past game with the players that they have because they didn't make a ton of changes to the offensive line. Outside of trading forgave jackson the deter draft stone forsyth. Who is like weirdly the pick that everyone's the happiest about and yeah i. I think that's it's almost more about waldren wilson than it is about everyone else in my mind and then on defense you know. They've they brought back. Carlos dunlap they signed a kerry hyder. Who's very sneakily decent in san francisco last year to adams will hopefully be healthy and corners is a big question mark on the team. Drafted a guy. But you know. Richard sherman still out there speaking about the niners and the seahawks. I think that's a name to keep an eye on But it yeah. That's gonna go a long way towards. I think not richard sherman. But those questions i suppose go a long way towards determining which of these nfc west teams the order in which they finished because i really think they could finish any order. It's it's post apocalyptic. I always say in at in the nfc west all right. I actually didn't. I put the niners out because i just. I don't know i got to see it with the quarterback i even though i'm i as i've said terrified. Pick danny collander pob last week and we both said the same thing which we were like nole when they picked reliance lance which were seahawks fan. So nice you should feel great about that I was torn between for the five spot. Three the niners. Can you guess to other teams elect chicago. Do you like chicago's doing no. I did say. I do think chicago's best case is kind of the twenty five seahawks kind of make it sound like. I only acts but no i. That's another one where it's like. God the offensive line that makes sense. I guide chicago probably would have been in the conversation for me. dallas dallas question mark washington question mark and. I think washington. Let's go washington are you has the best defense outside of tampa and all they need is average quarterback play to be significantly better than they were last year ryan fitzpatrick you're going to have peaks and valleys but maybe that'll average out towards average whereas the exact opposite is true with dallas right like they just need average defensive way to be better than they were last year and like i don't i think they're still tones of holes on that defense and a love dan quinn but you know. I don't have a ton of as their ability to make a massive leap. But like i said they don't need to make a massive leap like when you're watching the dallas team last year. I mean it was insanity watching them on defense like if felt like you were watching guys. Who didn't practice or something i. It was bizarre. So competence is the baseline that were like looking for in dallas. And i really do believe blake let me as if dallas has an average defense. Aren't they the top five teams in the nfc. Just off of quarterback play alone. How good that offensive line is. It's just so weird that you know the week before the draft they were talking about. We're not just going to play bass and play zone and then in the draft. They draft a big end in Golsen draft two linebackers. Emeka parsons in gibreel cox. After they already have leighton vander esch on jalen smith. And they're going to take you on your at will on orders. They dropped too long quarters and kelvin. Joseph nation right. You are building this team that you're just going to play cover three base with three linebackers telling us or not and i just some either your personnel department doesn't know what your plans are. Coaching staff doesn't know what your plans are. Because this doesn't seem to be connecting the two thousand twelve seahawks not. The bears sounds like all right. Let's take a quick break and then answer a few questions from listeners. Listen up people. We have a big favor to ask and we promise. I won't take up too much of your time as you know.

"So this really becomes a question of are the packers in the quarterback market or is jordan. Love the next guy right because my answer would change. He's to be right. Well okay if would you bet. Derek carr would be a better quarterback than jordan love right now again jordan love. Who if you go to google images only red jerseys. He hasn't thrown a pass for green bay in the preseason or regular season has addressed down for a game went through development. Virtually as as a rookie. You know. I probably bet on derek carr there right so like our people are talking about the card vodka adams reunion president of state fresno state. An awful offense back then too. If you watch that usc game i remember just scream passes over and over and over. It's funny because derek carr like definitely would be better than jordan love and yet pakistan's would be so angry. Because we know who derek carr is at least with jordan love. The we don't know like potential right like so. I don just tell me what you want. I need derek. Hard three one. That's what i would need to feel. Okay if we're talking about you know denver or the raiders. Right headlining spots. Those are the best assets. Would you rather have. Derek carr three ones or jerry. Jeudy in three one's darker because he played quarterback is gonna make. You're you're really not by your jordan. Love like i haven't seen them play since you taught state of west defenses. What am i supposed to do meter. It's tough okay. We got nothing counterpoint. Aaron rodgers in the broncos would be much more entertaining for me personally. So i think you should accept my broncos for you. Okay okay okay. So i mentioned we're gonna power rank. Afc team so obviously or permitted nfc teams. This wildly variable depending on what happens with rogers. So let's power rank them. Assuming aaron rodgers stays with green bay. Which you seem. You're at eleven ten. It's a sure thing by any means that he's getting traded. I'd i don't know. But i don't know i just think we'll see if rodgers is still on the packers who me an order your top five and then tear down okay. What one to five. I'd say tampa one. They just want super bowl. I don't know if guys anyone saw that but running that team back. Green bay too seems pretty chocolate at this point. And that's really off of like the strength of you know. Rogers just came off of mvp Three i would have the rams your rams angeles rams i also answer three even with the loss of legend joe berry but yeah step. Stanford's going to be able to do a lot. More staffers going to be able to do a lot. More stuff than gossip haram so for a second. I was thinking about the ram size. So we're the same right now. I have bucks backers. Rams mike concerned about the rams is you talked about stars scrubs rosters they are like an injury away from me from plummeting in my rankings like I was surprised so they took to to well the tiny wide receiver which kind of made sense because they obviously they wanna downfield threat for stafford and we know one. Thanks to sean. Jackson going play a whole season. But they didn't take an offensive lineman and last year. The only took one in the seventh round. Andrew whitworth is like eighty two still really good. The guys they draft in twenty nineteen or now starters like there is no deaths on that offensive line. So again i really. I'm really behind the rams as well but losing them. Losing both like the john johnson and troy hill to cleveland. What happens when you have this sort of roster where you've got a bunch of guys like a few guys making a lotta money is all of a sudden now depths in the rams have been lucky enough or still full enough rather to hit on some pics and the later rounds darius williams to the corner. Who's who was a restricted free agent with has been great and he's there for a year but if they lose any of these guys it it gets ugly. That's all i've say about the ramps right. I just think that stafford just brings such a different dynamic to them as a quarterback. I don't think people realize necessarily how limited goff was with got into the shotgun which is so weird for a quarterback who came out of an air raid system in college that he basically has to be played under center but any time they got into you know second alone thirty long situations. He just didn't bring anything to the table. And i thought that to to pick was crazy. I mean we're talking about one hundred and forty pound one that might be the first ever made in the nfl based off of players ability to run the jet sweep. that's crazy. He at that point in the league. Small like sal small. I also i would say linebacker little bit little bit question. Mark there still. I didn't really love. Leonard floyd contract. I still have them at number three. I'm just you know being a skeptic for the san francisco forty niners in comeback too high for you too high for it is too high for me even though i think i think they have the highest upside in the nfc west. But i i mean trey. Lance averaged eighteen yards per attempt. Against like you know what we're fresno state like fresno valley state like. I don't know. I play watching. I just can't go there yet. i just can't yet i. I don't think he might not play. You know i could see them. Holding onto jimmy for a minute and a secondary rally that secondary's got issues. Yeah they've yeah. That's secondary issues for a while. I just think that that that box is so good. Defensively on their offensive line. Situation is sorted out alex mack. Every time alex mack enters the room. He changes the offensive. Line is able to do. I really do think he's. He's kind of unsung in terms. Of how much influence. He has offensive linemen. Atlanta does what they did in two twenty sixteen without out smack right like you mean that much. I know that. Because i got an entire alex mack story written at halftime of the super bowl house like crazy..
Dollywood with Amber Davis
"Impossible to talk about dollywood without mentioning dolly parton then in are both big fans. She is a prolific songwriter. I think a lot of people would be shocked to know all the songs that she's written for other entertainers on her own. She sold more than one hundred million albums worldwide. We could honestly do a show several podcasts. Just don't hurt. She butts alone. She's amazing businesswoman and humanitarian her literacy program. Which all three of my kids have taken advantage of dali pardons imagination library which is a part of the dollywood foundation males one book per month to each and roll child from the time of their birth until they enter kindergarten. Currently over sixteen hundred. Local communities provide the imagination library to almost eight hundred fifty thousand children each live across the us canada uk. Australia and ireland. It's amazing she also helped to find one of the covid nineteen vaccines so i mean i could go on and on about dali yes. We absolutely could. Let's bring it back to the theme park. Dollywood was opened in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and one of the really interesting things about this. Is that for all its growth and offering of thrill rides. The park still retains a lot of history in roots. The park now known as dollywood has gone by several other names throughout the years and it still pays homage to the older parts. There are four years in the modern park river town junction. The village country fair in craftsman. Bali dollywood offers a fully functional. Gristmill where you can get incredible cinnamon bread and rolls and a fully functional chapel. That was actually named after the doctor. That delivered dolly truly. This is a part where you can ride some incredible thrill rides and get a glimpse back in time. So talk more about dollywood with us. We welcome amber. Davis publicist for dollywood amber. Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me and we really appreciate you coming on chatting with us. So robin our both. We're going to confess it. Where such huge fans of dolly. So can you talk about what her influence in the park. Looks like it could be major things or just simple touch here and there. Just give us a break. Yeah absolutely. I mean who doesn't love dali if you know anything else are dolly. We claim. She has a national treasure every believes she's just about as genuine as they come. We do see dolly from time to time so it's neat that the park not only bears her name. But there's there's things around that just remind you of who she is and what she means to a community here and at large but start dollywood really was her vision and so it's her. Her name is on it. She has the managing partners who know the theme. Park world but dolly. She really started this park to bring more people to the area to create jobs. And she's done both of those things so just the very welcoming nature of the park in a. We've were proud. Always tell people. Were the friendliest park. We won that award so many times that they actually retired at so now have the best park experience award from the golden ticket amusement today awards dolly wants us to be welcoming into you. See that and just the. The charm of the park itself are host week. We actually call our employees hosts because people who come our guest and so everyone who works there were hosting you so it again. In the culture in the nature of of who we are dollywood. You're going to see There's there's actually if you want to come for the dalai factor. You're gonna find dolly. There's a whole museums. Actually a fantastic museum chasing rainbows. It has things one of the things. We like to joke about dolly. Never throw anything away whether it's warehouse in nashville or if it's at dollywood we've got our hands on just really neat things. I mean her birth certificate and a replica of the coat of many colors. Actually it's a replica. Because you know. Intrigue fashion was continued to be handed down so that code is is longtime because it was down the many more kids after dolly but Her mom made another one for on us to put on display. So you're gonna see the coat of many colors. You're going to see movies threats and costumes from her movies. You're going to see you know dresses. Steve warranty to award ceremonies. You're going to see her awards museums. Fantastic there's also a replica of her. We like to call it the tennessee mountain home. So if you don't know dolly was one of or is one of twelve children so she grew in a very small home and so we need to put that in the context of walking through this house credible. You're like how limped year. The beginnings replica of the home. In what i mean by replicated. Her brother built it. Her mother decorated it. So it's not the home. She grew up in. But it is true to representations of of dali's. You're gonna say you know things like that in the park. There's there's there's smaller things like a popular. Eatery is drive in will read is actually a nod to the very first place. Dolly parton had a hamburger so easter eggs. You know the pines theater another location. That people don't know but that's where she had her first concert. So there's lots of things throughout the park that it's not in your face dali if you want that there are different areas. Not the whole. It's not all dolly all the time. So there's there's a lot but you have to kind of know where you're looking. Yeah i remember go into dollywood way back might have been the early nineties and then just recently. My daughter's chorale group went for to sing at dollywood. And i was shocked at all of the roller coasters. I mean there are rides galore. Can you talk a little bit. About what kinds of rides and attractions are dollywood. Mentioned some of it but talk about more than rides and stuff. Yeah you know. A lot of people don't realize that jolly win actually is a fantastic coaster park. You know a lot of people Thinking oh it's it's probably small little entertainment park actually does quite a few of the the big name coasters that the coaster enthusiasts talking about so yet we have our parking one hundred sixty acres. And we've got eight bay coasters so we've got lightning rod which you know we love and we're very proud to to reintroduce this year. I had lots of work in the off. Season practically brand new track thunderhead. That's a wooden coaster while eagle was the first wing coaster in the state So we liked to go. After unique rides we have fire chaser. Express which is a considered a family coaster. The reason is considered family is because it has a very low height requirements. Thirty nine inches. My actually two little boys and both of them were writing. Fire taser express when they were three. So you know on a coaster is kinda crazy but it's a fun unique ride. It launched as you out of the station forward but then by the time you're ending the ride you get launched backward. So that's it's a dual launch coaster. So that's a lot of fun so we we look for a lot of the The rides that are unique or that offer something that people haven't experienced
"jolly" Discussed on How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along
"I swear i thought we had but i'm i'm convinced and i'm starting to worry that we haven't i want to get two questions from our listeners because people sent him in but i am more excited about what i want to talk to you about I do ask. We've talked about three things. Money in politics gerrymandering and opening up or are trying to break this stranglehold on on on to power house parties. Being the only choices if you could only choose one. Because i don't know the answer to this. I ask myself all the time which of these would be the most important to go first with their. Certainly i think a trickle down effect that each one of them could have on the other but if you could only choose one either getting all money out of politics. Introducing third and fourth parties and other options or getting rid of partisan gerrymandering. What do you think should. What do you think would be the one to go. First what do you think would would be the one that would affect the other changes. I agree with you there. It's kind of a domino. You do a change to any one of them. It affects all of them but hands down not just generic gerrymandering reform but the implementation of as many fifty fifty districts as possible when forever changed political behavior. We never talk about term limits again. We would need them because it would restore the ability of voters to truly choose who they wanted to represent them and you know very importantly there are. There are some voting rights protections. That would be involved in this. I'm not suggesting we obliterate does there are also some natural demographic political communities right. There's a place i think. I think a harlem district. That's a d plus forty six and in deep red taxes. Hinterland has an are plus forty three. We're not going to change. those right. Did kind of back of the napkin math. When i was sitting in congress in the middle of the night one night during the session and i think we could change. We could get legitimate fifty fifty districts in about three hundred seats in the house. The congress would change for ever so we. So you're actually talking about. I mean not to turn a bad word. A good bad word good but to potentially gerrymander to specifically make that goal of fifty fifty at so a lot of the fair districts reforms. Focus on geographic compactness. Right we're trained to not like squiggly lines from the time. We're an elementary school. I'm suggesting maybe we bring back some squiggly lines. But what we ride into the state constitutions our electoral competitiveness so that electoral competitiveness becomes the fairness test. We have decided. The reform movement has decided that fairness district has to be geography. I don't disagree with that. But i'll tell you what happened in florida. It kicked out the foremost moderate members of the florida delegation. Myself gwen graham. Carlos cabello patrick murphy. Ileana ros-lehtinen our state delegation became more partisan not less because geography actually squeezed out the moderates. I would right here in the one of the most gerrymander states in the country. Now and it wasn't as i grew up so i'm with you on that. Yeah yeah so. I would suggest again. Accommodating for voting rights act protections. We actually ride into law. Electoral competitiveness has to be a factor in map drawn. Well that was the answer. I was hoping you'd give thank you. Let's move on to some of our questions from listeners. Can email questions to our guests Every week or or to us for our guests every week at Got it you got me. So flustered and excited at podcasts. At politic on dot com or you can send them to us on twitter or instagram at politic con And we have several people who wrote in for you. Joshua from santa fe new mexico asked after the rancor of the election. Why should either side want to work with the other at look. That's a that's a very good question. And it's one of those moments. Where i i try to withhold personal judgment on people. I think we all should in all walks of life. But i will say if you run for office and you hold public office. You hold the public trust. And you are open for for the people's judgment and i think in moments like this and we've seen many of these moments. During the trump era we just have to make moral judgments on the behaviors of our elected officials that we saw preceding the events of january. Six and cents. And it's reasonable to suggest. How can we possibly work together. I think it creates an opportunity. And i think joe biden seize that opportunity whether he can pull it off or not. I think he truly believes that. There's a certain calling of history right now in this moment for him to try to bind the wounds of our broken partisanship and not bring everybody along but br bringing enough of along that there is consensus around working together. I want to share his optimism. If you reach across the aisle you need somebody to reach a half way back. And i don't know if we're going to see that what do you what would you agree with him. What would you agree or disagree with him on right now. You're in congress. Oh i agree on it a lot of look what what drew me of the republican party. Were more some some constitutional around when obama issued the four executive orders on immigration. He acknowledged he didn't know if he had that power. I don't think he did. I think any president a republican president. Didn't but i also think that congress has a constitutional responsibility to address the problem through legislation. And that's where republicans failed so disagree in some areas with biden is the use of executive authority. But that's not unique to him. That's been every every modern president. I think he has an opportunity.

"System but it took serving for me to realize we gotta break the whole system down and rebuild it. How much do you think that hurts you and your race in against a in your in your final campaign. Yeah so am my final race. I had been redistricting right. I was in a fifty fifty district. Which i love. I think every district fifty s why. I'm a gerrymander reform advocate. Trust me this is why. I'm telling you this is why i've been excited to talk to you. Because seems like all the things you as a republican as a republican you support. I supported the democrat also iran specifically in the district that iran while i lived in it too but i got interested in it because it was so gerrymandered against to towards the republican side. That you know the person who was in it just didn't care didn't show up didn't do anything didn't try to campaign and i said well. Okay then ignore me if you can and so. I ran for that reason but you know it. It's i get really excited when we can have someone on this show that i would disagree with plenty of issues fine. That's you know that's the way it's supposed to work but confined agreement with and i've been really pumped be able to talk about campaign finance gerrymandering and i can't talk about your your party stuff to in a minute but a like these are. These are things that i agree with. You really would change you know putting the power back into the hands of people instead of politicians so so your final ratio were saying you had been redistricting and what it ended up being. So it was a district in that obama won by nine or ten and generically dims favourite by maybe three or four points so we ended up outperforming. I think i lost last race by a little more than three points but but two things about it. If we had had a million dollars at the end we would have won the race. I mean we were outspent four to one and we were broke. Because i at that point i was such a bad republican for republicans. Nobody was interested in supporting me. I was a republican and support marriage equality and support of gun control of campaign finance reform of climate science research. So i didn't have the the donor base and after i had exposed the fundraising scandal. The word from mccarthy's office at the time was we're only helping jolly if control of line and because they didn't think control the house was on the line they weren't to step in and help but but very importantly and this is where i think. Fifty fifty districts could benefit the entire country. I wanted the ability to test my positions on issues as a republican in a true toss up district. Because what. I wanted to be able to show my fellow. Republicans at the time was look you. Can you can address issues like marriage. Equality in climate and guns and campaign finance you can address responsibly. You can address it from a conservative position as long as you're talking about solutions and bringing people together you can win competitive races instead. What gerrymandering is done is. It's protected them from having to test their own ideologies and convictions. And it's why we see this identity crisis right now because the convictions and ideologies within the republican party whatever they might be do not reflect a consensus position of the nation but they're protected by supermajority districts in their cases that protect republicans just isn't democratic cases that protect democrats. And it's fascinating to me. That i'm gonna use a term that we've had trouble with on this podcast at the where the term deep state we had. We had a guest a few months ago. Here just lost his mind when that word but but but the people who have supported who did who support still president trump that that wing of the republican party right now have an donald trump himself campaigned. This deep state. This you know draining the swamp and getting rid of and and the irony. Is that the stuff that you're talking about the eighteen thousand dollars a day or else. We're not gonna help you or we're not going to help. David jolly less his his. The entire house control is at risk and gerrymandering. These are actually the real deep state issues. Don't you think. I mean this is how power has become entrenched. Yeah these are the tools of the trade and just penned an op. Ed jointly with the with john updike. Who's the the head of the open primaries group and and what we did is we trace. Donald trump's threats against republicans from the time of the election 'til the events of january six and clay the threat he used to get people. Republicans to vote against a firm in the electoral college and to believe the end and propagate the big lie the threat he used was primaries. He was on the record. Kids were the record. Saying if you're not with us we will primary you. Well the only reason that that tool is available is because again within our system. We've gerrymandered supermajority districts and we've close primaries to only partisan voters and so the only place of accountability is is for that partisan among partisan voters and the way to get elected then as clear. You do appreciate and in a lot of these districts. But i'm going to dumb it down for myself. A lot of these districts have been gerrymandered to the point. Where really all you have to do is win the primary. Oh that's it. How many how many districts left you mentioned that your district was. I think you said that. D plus five. You tend to swing democrats bright by five points or so yeah district iranian was are twelve and they're they're d thirty five destroyed. I mean most of the districts in this country once you win the primary in. That's it and so. Why would anybody changed that. Who's going to change that. Why well so. Here's ever two. yes so two very important points it. We often contextualized gerrymandering full in primaries as hammering incumbents but let's flip the script just talk about the incentive structure in any walk of life. You do the things that allow you to advance and in politics to get elected and reelected so the system is set up to reward partisanship. So those are the behaviors. We see if we were to open primaries and create fifty fifty districts. The behavior of members will change because the reward structure would look differently. And and i think by doing that. Whichever major party cracked the code to building a broad coalition could be a governing majority for decades to come now. How do we fix it. Incumbents aren't going to going to put this accountability on themselves but in about thirty states voters can lead initiatives to change their state constitution and arizona. We saw independent commissions to to draw. District lines devoid of political influence of politicians. We've seen similar in the state of florida. Constitutional amendment that requires geographic in maine. They they the voters passed. Ranked choice voting. We've seen flirtations with open primary so voters have a lot of power. It's just a pretty dispassionate. Issue right most people come to politics because of reproductive ortega yeah. They don't wanna talk about electoral reform. I wanted to talk about money and politics throughout my whole campaign and all my consultant said not sexy enough not sexy and nobody votes on these issues that tomatoes and and so you probably saw there might be an issue that eighty percent of your community agrees with clay aitken on but if you ask them what's going to drive you to vote that ranks number ten and so you talk about if you're lucky. So so gosh. I have so many questions for you. What what. I got questions you so well. We'll give you thirty seconds of the. What do you what do you. What do you think will motivate people to want to do this. I mean to to understand. I just wrote down a question for later. But i'll ask it now i won't i'll wait. I'm usually good at this. Swear to god david. But i'm so excited about these particular issues so i mean let's let's move onto. We talked about money. We talked about gerrymandering breaking the two party stranglehold. I wanna talk about that. Before i get into some of these other ones because you know people have tried it. It's it's difficult to do. You are making an effort right now to start a third party sam but tell people what it stands for. Yeah the serve. America movement has been around about three or four years. I became as chairman a year ago. And it is challenge gene This viability equation of new parties. And let's be very real about this. Let's not be naive about once in a generation moments come along where independent politics emerge. You can go back a hundred years. So the.

"Two of the seven republican votes to convict former president trump in his impeachment trial last week came from gop senators who had already announced their retirements three came from senators. Fresh off of reelections. Two six year terms only two of those conviction votes from republicans. Utah's mitt romney. And alaska's lisa murkowski will actually have to face voters in the next four years now voters being able to hold their representatives. Accountable is a hallmark of democracies right but when our leaders become more interested in being elected than they are in doing the right thing our system can find itself incredibly weakened several major issues. In our electoral system actually do more to serve the elected officials than the voters things like political gerrymandering the viability of third parties and the ridiculous amounts of money. In politics. these are all issues that a majority of americans agree need reform. But there's this desire for self preservation that's kept any actual change from taking place in whole bunch of these areas because no one ever wants to really drain the swamp when they're still swimming in it but every so often either after retiring or losing reelection a member of congress steps forward and speaks from experience about some of the darkest and most hypocritical part of the american political system. I'm clay can in this week. Politican welcomes one of those. Very few former congressman david jolly after losing his seat representing florida's thirteenth district to former republican governor turned. Current democrat congressman.

I mean they would have to the arizona. Gop would have to send your very goldwater now right along with cindy mccain and everybody else wouldn't they. Yeah you're absolutely right. Definitely and i think there's a nuance that we've got to pay attention to. Which is the fights. We used to see within the party within the gop over moderates and conservatives and could the party be a big tent that big tent conversation was had on the ideological spectrum right. Is there room for new england. Republicans moderate republicans and newt gingrich conservatives. That's fine. We see that that ideological conversation happen within parties all the time. Democrats had their own just after the election the twain the ao seasons bamberger. What is different in. Today's republican party is trying to coalesce a big tent not ideologies but around different opinions on defensive democracy and on the fundamentals of democratic principles. And that that's where. They're losing the american people now i would say. Unfortunately they don't suffer from an electoral crisis. There's competitive as they've ever been. They lost in november. But they're performing very strong but they do suffer from an identity crisis that if they don't get their hands around this. I don't think they're going to recover from it. They can't expand the coalition from where they are now. Well as you know. Michael steele brings up my daddy issues because my dad was chairman of the republican party. But you as a. My dad was a congressman for fourteen years. And i mean it is hard to you actually said that you said this impeachment presents.

FIFA Launches 'FIFA Sound', a New Entertainment Strategy
"Today. Fee for announced the launch of fever sound entertainment strategy designed to enable soccer fans music lovers artists and players to make connections through sport and music. Sound is debuting an eight episode poker series co hosted by liam payne former member of the boy band one direction and sports broadcaster. jd dire. The fee for play on podcast aims to bring together the best soccer players with world's greatest musicians on the podcast and initiative born out of a partnership with universal music group for bad for brands hosts and guests will discuss monumental moments in their lives and music that inspired them during those periods of time. So that's that's the sort of the blurb and that's what fee are up to. Why are they doing this. Do you think sophie. we'll give it. Let's start with the what's happening here. Okay so i think. I think that they're starting to present themselves more than just a football brand. I think it's quite hard for a governing body to make that move into brand they can be seen as a sort of dry organizations so they're tapping into that crossover between music culture fashion in the same way that many players do and build themselves into a bigger brand in the clubs. They play for. I think that fee. I seen this opportunity to get more emotional connection using those other levers and a great way to do that or a great touch point is audio because it's proven to have that emotional engagement quality you know so great rates connect with people so that got universal thing and the celebrity thing and bringing together sports people with musicians and talking about staff on a deeper level is bringing fee for motor life as a brand. That's how i do agree with that. I think it's an attempt to do that. Which i. I'm not sure it as with all of these. Things will depend on the execution as to whether they're able to achieve it but i think sophie hit the nail on the head in terms of trying to branch out into other verticals to create an entertainment crossover Format aligning sports with music This is an ambition. Law of clubs and sports brands share Whether they're able to put it in a way that's relevant to fans Were remains to be seen but Let's hope the it is this new and rather gonna do it or are they doing it now. Doing better elsewhere. I don't i don't think trying to get into the football. Conversation is anything new It's just very difficult for official bodies particularly governing bodies to get into office space which is quite tip quite defined by authentic conversations. Authentic voices and try to and try to place themselves. They're in a way that is meaningful. So i think i think many will attempt to execute correctly. I'm not sure i agree. I think that not many have yet a they are thinking about it and i think some of the big big rightsholders around the world will be. We'll be looking to do this. But we haven't really seen any body executed properly or well yet but i think this conversation's going on in the background. We've certainly seen some big clubs around the world investing in their audio branding strategy lately. So people are. I acts and i think there'll be more of that. But in terms of podcasting in the way that fee for doing it. I don't think anybody else's done here. What's the point of an official club. Pocus what's the positioning. Do you think that again. I mean jolly mentioned there that there are other voices and there are lots of fan based club podcasts around and there's also mainstream media radio. Bbc lots of of other noise walk role. Can a club play in this space. Yeah it's an excellent point and it predates podcast as an it's It's the fact that there's an ongoing conversation and then there's there's certain things that clubs kennecott say and no no more obvious. Was this at the time also fan. Tv had a really big moment. A couple of years ago around Wanting to their fans willing to sack sacrifice in anger and that was getting huge engagement on youtube. Whereas and i i'm the club the that digital media team would have quite like some of the audience that robey. So we're guessing but they could never have produced content like that and nor should they So it being the official voice you have to place your advantages. You have to play to your strengths. And that is usually access to things that your average punter. Your average commentate a dozen have access to Which usually of goes back to the players and or other people within the club. Who have something interesting to say But yeah you you tend to be constrained somewhat by your ability to speak freely if you're the official voice And i think one simple example where that that slightly doesn't doesn't play true and and the good thing is Nfl media has a suite of podcasts. That all to kind of talk about the league and some do it through the lens of statistics and analysis. Some do it through the lens of a more jerky. And and kind of light-hearted kind of tone of voice but they're all officially sanctioned podcast. That's promote the sports in the league and The hosts have free rein to Form of a better word. Slag off coaches play is say someone should be dropped or sack of whatever and and you would never see that coming from official bodies in europe and i think but it's it's It's a it's a very interesting approach. And i think one that's been well executed

You see diana receive their. She's been covering the chiefs all week long diana. They didn't address this. Kobe news because it came up right at the end of media day. But you were talking to all of them throughout so tell us what you learned. Yeah well. I gotta give a lot of credit to this. Kansas city chiefs team who are in kansas city missouri. Twelve hundred miles away from where the super bowl action is all going down starting today and these guys were having a lot of fun they were bringing the energy this virtual so it's very hard to have a lot of energy and to have fun but they did a really good job laura. Let's start with the most important thing i learned. And that's andy. Reid is going to have a double cheeseburger waiting for him at the end of the game. If they win if you remember he had one last year. That was the meal he ate after. They want kidding. That's not the most important thing but something that did stand out with. Patrick mahomes was talking about. When tom brady met up with him after the afc championship game. Two years ago remember the chiefs lost at arrowhead and our jeff jolly was actually down on the ground and he was the one who spotted this. He saw tom. Brady walk over to a security guard and asked to talk to. Patrick mahomes the security guard. A little surprise like okay. I'll figure it out for you. Well he was able to find him a little room in the equipment room. And that's when they brought patrick in radiant ham had a conversation. Take a listen to what patrick learned about it for me.

The weirdest stuff at CES
"Joining us to talk about some of the most unusual stuff it's es this year is usa today tech columnist. Jennifer jolly a jennifer. Thanks for being here. Oh my gosh you guys. Thanks so much for having me. I love talking about weird tech. It's my favorite thing. All right so what was the weirdest thing you saw this slightly different. Cas where we all were covering it. Virtually yeah well we're just. It's it's going to be a tie between toews poop detective toilet. You heard that right and i mean please. Just start with the puns. Now i call it number two on my list healthier future based on what you leave behind get ready to be bulled over from the latest data dumb. I mean you can't you can't make this stuff up. What does it do. Tell me you you. You've you've peaked. You've peaked. My i can't think of a good pun around the top of my head so i'm going to give up. He's flushed with excitement about this. There you go there you go. Okay so todos newest ai. Smart commode is a sensor filled. Smart bowl aimed at detecting early signs of disease based on just imagine doing air quotes key outputs so it will analyze everything from how long you sit on the throne to The temperature of your skin as yours just sitting there to whether your stool contains enough fiber and then it will send you recommendations on how to improve your health via app on your smartphone showing gives you solid output. I caught up with you guys young so there we have it so that's got to be one of the weirdest last year. I talked about There was some gadget that analyzed your cats poop to let you know about your cats health so it was just a small leap to human health based on. You know looking into the future by what you leave behind. Yeah i'm gonna stop now it totally but you know it really it really make sense because you know how they've said. Some universities were analyzing waste on campus for covid spreading around so anyway so you mentioned it was a tie. So what's the other weird thing that you that at the top of your list. The bio breast milk. You guys remember last year when impossible pork basically got all the headlines plant based bacon that actually tasted really really good. Well this is again with the pun. The mother of all new high tech smart foods bio milk is a customized cultured breast milk. That is made from cells of a pregnant mother than cultivated in a lab to reproduce human milk. But it's personalized for that specific infant from that actual mother. So it's a way really. And i mean it sounds crazy but female Cell biologist female food scientists founded this company to create an alternative solution to formula to the packaged powdered formulas. We've been using forever because three out of four moms. Have some reason they have to stop breastfeeding before the recommended. Six months so it could be work. It could be health related. It's stressful any nursing. Mom knows it is one of the hardest jobs you will ever do. Toss in pandemic and working from home in teaching your kids. I mean it's really really hard in the best of times so that is just something i can't i couldn't believe it when i heard about it but i'm excited to see it. Come hopefully this year. So let's get to some of the really cool stuff that happened in the s one of the things that i've heard i'd heard about were these bionic contact lenses i think. Can you describe them. They sound really cool. Yeah it's called mojo vision. It's an a. Are embedded contact lens. That is as close to a bionic accessory as i could ever imagine. There's a teeny tiny display. It's half a millimeter in diameter. That's about the same size as a grain of sand that's actually embedded within the contact lends itself and then it projects images and information really subtly. You really take your attention away from what you're looking at but it projects that into your peripheral vision as you either. Walk down the street or cycle up a hill or even look up into the night sky. It's absolutely mind blowing at this. Was the winner of css last gadget standing. And that's an event that i have emceed for the past several years including this year i had not seen not mojo lens until video that the company played during the event and i had to pick my job up off the desk. I just cannot believe this kind of futuristic far out technology is actually here and the company told me they're going to launch this For people who are visually impaired. I and follow up with a consumer model. They have to go through all kinds of of fda and f. like all kinds of regulations because it is a contact lens. I e a medical device but they are looking at two three years out with these. Maybe less sounds like something. I am i on medically go to the goes. Terminator two were you. Were you got to see through the terminator's eyes and stuff was coming up on the side and you're like wow that if that could happen in the future yeah not only could is will. We've seen it. We also saw the music's glasses that do something very similar. But they're a pair of glasses so the difference is a contact lens and a pair of futuristic super cool smart glasses nice beyond products. Were there any trends or big takeaway. She took from the show this year. Jennifer there was a lot this year. You guys have already talked about this. A lotta pandemic tech germ killer. Everything's from target as new anti microbial backpack to special lights. I saw ub techs. Giant robot can rule through rooms shooting off giant rays of uvc. Light to sterilize a room so huge huge emphasis on clean tech mask tech. You guys wrote about the airpods mask. I have that with me where you know. There's a little disc on the front of it that connects with your smartphone and can give you all kinds of information about the air that you're breathing. How much your breathing. So that was a really really big trend and then also just comfort more comfort and this big buzzword this year delight at home figuring out ways to bring basically your whole entire world inside the walls of your home or even your backyard and have it be a lot better to hang out. There in the future will

If you kept the nissan happy your livestock would survive the winter in all else would go. Well if you disrespected or upset the nida you may find horrors in the morning like your cow.

He solves the problem by stealing a neighbor's cow and delivering it to his family's farm and quotes. So you really didn't want to get on their bad side. There are many artworks depicting the nisa as almost demonic looking elves throughout the fifteen and sixteen hundreds but by the century they had started taking on more of a happy christmas elf. Kind of look quoting again. A child sized bearded man and appointee red cap traditional garb for farmhands and quotes and met martin anderson curator at the national museum of denmark.

The nsa or even more jolly and innocence. They may still play pranks like stealing.

Fatman: the Mel Gibson Santa action comedy
"I have to tell you something about the serial comic concept made cinema fat man which you could see on Fandango now Voodoo or Amazon Prime. This stars Mel Gibson as a gritty, tough guy named Kris Kringle. Guess who he's. In fact, Santa Claus. And in this movie, he has to team up with the U. S military when a disgruntled kid hires an assassin to kill this Not so jolly Santa Mel because the kid received the lump of coal in his stocking. I'm not kidding. I mean, I guess this kid thinks hey may see you when you're sleeping, but he may not see you. You're aiming at him with a high powered rifle like Oh, my God. So is this. This is a dark film or what is it? It's darkly comic on Lee. Not in a good way like bad Santa in a way, like why they make this had it been funnier or scarier or more heartfelt, But I was like, Wow, okay. Man that is wild that's called fat Man. A fat man. And, you know, no reference to Kevin Smith from a few years back before he went on that diet.

"We need to put the bat signal up for one of the top tech gurus in the world from U. S a today and so many other great publications that literally Jennifer Jolly Jennifer. Welcome to WGN. Thank you so much for having me. Well, it's great to have you. I mean, obviously, this is a busy busy time of year. I think people are always kind of leaning on you to help guide them in as many ways as possible. But this is a time of year where everybody starts flipping the switch. From the turkey. Certainly we're gonna have that food all weekend long. But start thinking. Okay. What's out there? What am I going to need? What are people gonna want And where do I get it right? Yeah. And how do we know that we're actually getting the best deals? You know, all of a sudden this frenzy has started. The good thing about this year is what we're all pretty much suck at home. So instead of having to go out and camp out, you know long lines outside these big box stores. We just have to wait with our finger poised over the check out now, But me on our laptops. That's good and bad press. It means people started shopping much much earlier this year. Some 60% of people across America say they're done. The holidays. But then for the rest of us who really haven't even started? That means we better get going because a lot of things that you're selling out and with shipping Billy's things like that. You know, this might be a good chance. We if we wait too long, we won't be able to get it. I wanted to ask you to Justus, though we all complain. You know, the holiday decorations are starting to become available. You know, in September, you know where the thinks they're the Halloween stuff is coming up in the summer is when people are looking towards you know black Friday what it used to mean where you did have to physically congregate in the parking lot off the walmart and trample your neighbors and friends in order to get that deal now because There is just so much access, and so much of the world in a million different ways has become on demand is that it's sort of blurring the line where maybe cos they're trying toe, get a jump on things, or is this the kickoff and then there's it just turn into like, okay, it's just open season on opportunities. You just got to keep your eyes open. Well this year because of the pandemic, and really, because Amazon did their big sale days in October, and you know, instead of in July, they had him in October. So that's really when everybody jumped in with the deals and almost all the big box retailers. The targets the best buys the WalMart. Their deals have been going on. Kind of the whole time, like targets started November. 1st Best buy started rolling out their black Friday deals last Sunday, So we've been seeing a lot of these deals already. And really, the message has been shop early shop online. Uh, if you don't get the big markdowns today, it's okay. Don't panic because you'll still have a chance. Tomorrow you'll still have a chance The next day and Cyber Monday is supposed T blow by all. Shopping ever in a single day online, So there's still a few chance of left something you need to shop. But then also I read it in some of the notes and some of the things that you've shared that is also The thing that is one of the hot products is is laptops and new laptops. What should we expect? As sort of the life expectancy off the laptop? I remember traveling the country, maybe even the world with a laptop that must have lasted eight years or something. Where every day I would wake up and say, Are we gonna make it today? And now two people and prices have you know if you if you shop around, prices have come down a little bit, and certainly the technology Has stepped up. What should we expect out of a laptop and is now the time to get one? Even if it wasn't that long ago, you got one. You know if you are a heavy, heavy laptop user like I am for my work, and I write scripts every day and write articles every day. I'm I use my laptop all the time travels with me. I am really lucky if my math book pro My Apple left laptop last more than three years, That's dramatic, But I added on, you know, it's got a lot going on all the time. So heavy laptop user you are really lucky if you can keep that thing running in it. Shit for five years. If you're more of the normal average laptop user seven years is kind of it these days, and I say if you have a laptop right now, that's seven years older, older and you go try one of these newer versions out today, whether it's a Lenovo gel, the New Macs are are the best. Computers we've ever seen out of Apple and you know of the Mac line and the same across the board I My second favorite brand is Lenovo and the New York and nine I two in one notebook. It's the most versatile too, and one really. It's more like a five in one. That's a laptop that folds to prop up like a 10 to life flat like a tablet. It's one of these models that is ushered in this new generation of portable powerful laptops. What do we expect out of those? All day. Battery life, more modern, connective, itty lightning fast speed and a lot more room to store all of your documents
Gustav Holst: The Planets
"Welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. Astronomy is the science that studies the Sun Moon Planets and other objects in the sky astrology is not a science. It tries to show how objects in the affect people's lives on Earth Gustav. Holst loved astrology and he composed his planets to be musical pictures of human nature. Holst started composing his First Planet Mars. The bringer of war in nineteen fourteen just before world. War One broke out. Mars was the Roman God of war. All the planets in our solar system except Earth are named for God's from ancient mythology. In Roman mythology Venus was the goddess of love. But host was interested in astrology not mythology. So his Venus is the bringer of peace. Venus is sometimes called the evening star because it's the first pinpoint of light you see in the sky after the sun goes down. But, light from stars twinkles when it passes through the Sky, light from planets doesn't. Next up is the planet that Holst actually composed last. Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. So it's trip or orbit around the Sun is the fastest. It's named for the Roman Messenger God who had wings and host called his mercury the winged Messenger. Mercury is the smallest planet in the Solar System Jupiter is the largest. Jupiter King of the Roman gods was also known as Jove. That's where we get the word jovial, which means cheerful or jolly host titled He has Jupiter the Bringer of jollity. Jupiter is full of great tunes. Host later turned this one into a patriotic song. Gustav Holst called his planets seven pieces for large orchestra. You might say, wait a minute. There are eight planets nine. If you're a pluto fan how come host on the road seven well, first of all host finished composing the planets in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixteen, and Pluto wasn't discovered until nineteen thirty also host based his planets on astrology which looks at how the other planets affect us here on earth. So no earth. Even, though the planets is the most popular piece, go stop host ever wrote he didn't think it was his best work, but he did like his planet Saturn the bringer of old age. Saturn Jupiter. In Roman mythology. There are other planets with rings, but none of them are as spectacular as the rings around Saturn humorist, Mark Russell joked that Saturn's rings are made of lost airline luggage, but they're really made of dust and ice. He only planet named for a Greek rather than Roman God is urine us who was Greek God of the sky. Rotate for turn on an imaginary line running through their middle called an axis. The access usually runs top to bottom with a little bit of a tilt like you see on globe but urine this is so tilted on its axis that it looks like it's spinning on its sign. Posts Planet Uranus is the magician. And his Neptune is the mystic. Neptune was the Roman God of the sea. In Neptune host created a really unusual ending for the planets. A double choir of women's voices join the orchestra singing with no words. And at the very end, only the voices are left and they just fade away.
At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses
"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.
The Great Escapes with Life Death and Taxonomy
"If you've been staying inside as much as possible these past few months. That's a little easier to do now that the summer heat has fully set in your probably anxious to get out to fly the coop as it were. Animals who can fly should be getting out of zoos all the time. It would stand to reason. Though. usually therein enclosures netting across them, or they've had their wings clipped. That's a process of trimming off birds largest flight feathers, so they can't get enough. Lift when they flap which I'm probably going to end up doing to our backyard chickens if they don't knock off the free ranging. Birds generally stay in captivity pretty well, but of course there are exceptions to the rule or I wouldn't have brought it up. In two thousand, five and African Flamingo managed to get away from the Sedgwick county sue in Kansas. A massive search was launched, but The crabs backup singer was nowhere to be found. Until two thousand thirteen, when he was spotted, six hundred and fifty miles away on the Gulf coast of Texas among a flock of wild local flamingos. Bird watcher named Neil Hayward have been able to confirm the flamingos identity by the numbered band on his leg and offered to help recapture it. The Zoo essentially said I'm not even mad. I'm impressed and told the folks in Texas to leave the Flamingo to his new life with a mate who had herself escaped from a Mexican Nature Reserve. Anyone who's dealt with a parrot knows that they're too clever by half, and that certainly applies to Cuba the mccaw a resident of Vancouver's Zoos Parrot Gardens. Even, though the suet taken all precautions to prevent the parrots from escaping, it seemed that the clever girl was hell bent on getting out. On a pleasant Spring Day in two thousand nine zoo staff had moved the parrots to an outdoor enclosure. A little while later, their headcount came up short. The keepers weren't panicked. All the birds had their wings clipped. So how far could you have gotten? Surprisingly are considering. She hitched a ride in an RV. Juba got into a compartment near the vehicle's Engine Bay and hung out for three days before the family in Rv, found her. Luckily they were on one of the more stationary parts of their vacation and had only gone twenty miles, so it was barely out of their way to take what I'm assuming was a very annoyed parrot back to the zoo. Anyone who's watched? Jailbreak movie knows that you won't get very far without stealing a set of wheels. Try to imagine the end of the great escape without the motorcycles. No good. Even one? The Indian spectacle at the Berlin soon knew that. In two thousand and four, he rode a log across the moat, the rounds, the bear habitat and scaled a wall to freedom. Now that he was out, he had to use this time wisely. I stop the zoos playground. Terrified parents rushed their children away while one had a jolly go on the merry go round and went down the slide. After getting bored of that fairly quickly, one wandered off only to find a bicycle across his path. When he stopped to examine it perhaps to assess it for its usability as a getaway vehicle, the keepers who had put it there were able to track him and carry all three hundred pounds or one hundred and thirty six kilos of air to his habitat. And potentially dangerous could also describe a gator named Chuckie who got loose from the Alabama Gold Coast in two, thousand, four with a little help from Hurricane Ivan. Zookeepers hadn't been able to evacuate the gators and the storm surge destroyed their enclosure, setting them loose. Them meaning plural gators, though only chucky got any real publicity. Rapidly due to the fact that he was twelve feet or three point seven meters long and weighed about half a ton. That makes for better copy. Zoo officials weren't as worried about Chucky, going native, as they were of Chucky, going up to people expecting to be fed as he had for the past fourteen. Here's a situation that could get very ugly very fast. Luckily dedicated alligator retrieval team from gator land in Orlando was able to catch chucky less than a week later. Some animals get by with a little help from their friends or even from strangers. Three kangaroos staged a daring escape from a wildlife park near Frankfurt Germany. The name of whom I am now going to attempt to say. The hawksbill shoot par concert. It is what it is taken early vote. They escaped by going under the fence. Thanks to the work of a Fox and wild boar.
reCAPTCHA and Duolingo: Luis von Ahn
"Think about the small moments or decisions in your life that actually had a huge impact on how your life turned out. Maybe it was a conversation. You struck up with the person next to you on an airplane. Maybe it was a party. You reluctantly went to only to meet the person you'd eventually marry or maybe it was a decision to stay on vacation an extra day that sparked a new idea for Kevin System. It was a random remark from his girlfriend that made him decide to use filters on instagram for Blake. Majkowski was a chance meeting with a group of young Argentinian who took him to the countryside where he saw kids with no shoes. That one day inspired him to create. Tom's and for Louis Fun on it was a free lecture at Carnegie Mellon University in two thousand. We'll get deeper into the story in a few minutes but that single lecture would lead him to invent to ingenious new tools the I was capture. Yes captures those annoying twisted and blurred letters. You have to type into a website to prove your human and the second one was duo lingo now. The biggest language learning APP in the world which is now getting even more popular because people are looking for new things to do now that they're stuck at home but was captured and duo. Lingo were designed to harness the power of crowdsourcing to solve problems. And I'M GONNA blow your mind here if you have ever typed in a capture or reused dueling go. There's a good chance you've taken part in a massive online collaboration that you probably weren't even aware of and it's amazing. How Louis came up with all this but let's start at the beginning. Lewis was born in Guatemala in late. Nineteen Seventy S. Both as parents were doctors and though he was surrounded by poverty violence in Guatemala City. Louis screw up in comparative privilege and as a kid. He spent a lot of time hanging out at the family business. My Mother's family actually had a candy. Factory everybody is always a Mesa. The fact that I grew up with a candy factory they think it was like Willy. Wonka or something. I was not all that much into the candidate. Self I was into the machines because basically the candies made by these gigantic machines. That bump out I don't know how many thousands of pieces of candy per hour and basically all my weekends. I spent playing at the Candy Factory and I would They the machines apart and put them back together they would be some extra pieces after. I put him back together on that. That would be a problem but what? What kind of student were you were? You were school pretty easy for you. Yeah I was pretty nerdy basically. That was really good at math. Math was just easy to me. I what I would do during the summers is basically get either next year or you know. Couple YEARS LATER. Math books on all the sizes. Wow it kind of came easy but the way I really got good ideas by doing hundreds and hundreds exercises. That's what you do in. The summertime was bored. I mean I was an only child I is. I didn't have that much to do. This is remember this is also pre Internet pre everything. So what was I going to do? Man That's what I did was putting playing cards in the spokes of my bicycle and by jolly ranchers seven. Eleven should math books. So you were. Did you just love math? I mean it sounds like kids. Don't think about their future. They're not like I'm going to study math so I can be in tech one day like unless I've really enjoyed it. I I enjoyed it was it was like a puzzle for me by the way this is not the only thing I did. I mean I I also played a lot of video games Pirated Video Games in my commodore sixty four like floppy disks. Floppy Disk loppy discs. That's right I wanted a Nintendo. When I was eight my mother would not get many intendo. She instead got me computer. Commodore Sixty Four. And I couldn't figure out how to use it but eventually I read like the manual stuff and I figured out how to use it more than I figured out. I could buy other people's video games. And so I became a little hub in my in my little neighbourhood but these were not other kids adults or kind of basically young adults who had a computer and they would come to my house and I would take their games and give them my games exchange so then. I collected a pretty large number of video games but sh- mentioned right that I mean because your childhood sounds pretty nice but but like as a kid I guess or even as a teenager there was a civil war in Guatemala right. I mean we know that today. There's a a lot of violence there. Obviously violence in the US and other countries to but Guatemala's has been particularly hard hit. I mean did it feel dangerous when you're a kid yes it did. There was a civil war pretty much since I was born in seventy nine to nineteen ninety-six. There was a civil war going on the whole time. It always felt dangerous when I was fifteen or so. My aunt was kidnapped for ransom. I mean she was gone for seven or eight days. Wow People's cars would be stolen. I don't every couple of months. Somebody's car would be stolen in my family. Going past seven thirty PM was rare games. You needed to go out in a large group. If you're going to go up at seven thirty PM and I did my house had walls and barbed wire yeah. It felt dangerous. I mean this is one of just one of the reasons I came to the US. Actually I mean I was. After my aunt was kidnapped I thought to myself. I don't WanNa live here. Yeah and I guess you did end up leaving Guatemala for college because you went to Duke in North Carolina and you describe yourself as a like a math nerd in school and and is that what you intended to do like to do something in math. That's what I wanted to become an economic math professor. I was pretty certain. I wanted to become a math professor at the time. I thought the best thing that I can do is really learn a lot of math and I really it and I thought it was futile to learn how to deal with other people. It is interesting because my job. These days is one hundred percent just dealing with other people's problems. I'm just trying to understand the so so by becoming math professor. You thought. Hey I wouldn't have to deal with people I would just deal with facts. Data and numbers. Yes yes and you know I. I'll do math research all day long. And every now and then after class of but whatever that's like a tax That's that's what I thought so all right so you are She gets your degree and you this path to go into academia and you go into a PhD program at Carnegie Mellon Correct and I guess you go into computer science right yes. I changed from math computer science because I visited a math Grad school and what people were saying the professor was saying. Oh I'm working on this open problem that nobody's been able to solve for the last three hundred years and I thought I don't think I'm smart enough if you haven't done it and nobody's done it in three hundred years that's Kinda not for me whereas when you visit in computer science I mean this is crazy thing before like. Oh Yeah I still have an open program yesterday. Well it's a much younger field yet so that I thought that was much more exciting for me. At

Pirate Myths and Mysteries
"And for the next week or so. I will be focusing on tyrus during the Golden Age from sixteen fifty to about seventeen thirty and in my ongoing research for these podcasts. I have had a few surprises one. Pirates DID BURIED TREASURE TO PIRATES. Made MAPS FOR THOSE TREASURE. I will be producing evidence of this also. Pirates did make other pirates and English Spanish ship captains walk the plank pick up any book on the Golden Age Pirates. Sixteen fifty to seventeen thirty and it would have you believe that they sailed the Atlantic but in fact when the English began actively pursuing what they call privateers and hanging entire crews many fled attempting to sail around Cape Horn. The southernmost tip of South America but few survived where the Atlantic and Pacific collided strong winds large waves unpredictable current and icebergs challenge every vessel. Pirates formed egalitarian. Orders based on elected officials and mutual trust. They did make some crews of captured vessels walk the plank in eighteen twenty two captain of the British ship. Rudd poll was made to walk the plank when his ship was captured by the pirate ship. Emmanuel before turning himself in Captain Kidd buried his treasure somewhere on long island also around area will discuss Madagascar. He was hanged for piracy in London before it could retrieve it for two hundred years. Fifteen sixty five to eighteen fifteen. The Spanish Treasury Cross Pacific from Alka Poco laden with gold and silver had been caravan across the isthmus there from there. They sailed to new Spain at the time Manila unchallenged until sixteen ninety nine. It was late in that year. That the five masted pirate ship made the run around Cape Hope captain by check Berryman. The Spanish treasure galleon left behind by the rest of the Spanish fleet was just ten days out of port of Al Capone sailing. Lazy five knots for Manila when they were intercepted by another vessel when the peach pulled within five hundred yards of the Galleon and unfurled the Jolly Roger and fired. Twenty two cannon on the heavily Laden. Gallia well that was all it took without hesitation. Captain Fernandez de the Tinian unloaded his sixteen cannons in response and beat a hasty retreat up the coast of North America. No Vashem's speed for the gold. Silver she carried the San. Jose couldn't lose the peach. A Jose carried eighty pounds of gold twenty-six tons of unkown silver and four hundred thousand pesos. For ten days with a damaged rudder Santellien led the peach on a wild chase up. The coast of North America finally anchoring off a rugged coast the captain of peach saw his chance sailed to within a hundred yards the guy and for best effect of short range cannons and let fire twenty two guns in a final show of defiance. The San Jose unleashed her sixteen cannons. And by chance hit the powder storage of the each flowing. This ship to splitters but it was too late for the San Jose sinking by the Stern.

No webcam? Use smartphone instead.
"Black we all need a Webcam to look better on our zoom meetings because arc are webcams on. The computer are Super Low resolution. There's an APP for that. There's an APP for that. If you use your phone our good friend Jennifer jolly his try to bunch them out and Jen. Hwa You feel people in start off with what was the best APP used. Okay so the very best APP for android phones was the DROID CAM ex pro. That's five dollars. There is a free version but the amount of ads made me absolutely insane within just a few minutes so I would say five bucks for the pro version. That one for me was by far. The easiest to use overall has the best overall. Look and feel the drawback in it's funny Jeff because every single one of these has a pro and con the biggest con for this one was that it only works with Lenox and Windows operating systems. So as long as you have one of those you can grab an old android phone as long as that android phone isn't more than I'd say. Five years old has a decent Webcam. It's just easy to navigate simple to use. You can split your live streams and also livestream to Twitter Youtube. So it's just simple easy setup everything okay well let me throw this. Throw this out at you. Anybody can respond to zoom invitation. Click the link on their phone and then start talking on their phone using the phone's camera. I've done it. I'm sure you've done it as well and it's way higher resolution. That THE ONLY SNAG. Is You have to make sure that your propping the phone up against something and not looking not having the look up at your nose you you want to be on a level. So why would I even care about one of these APPs when I could just use my phone without it? There's a lot more that you can do in them. They're more feature rich They also tend to use the better camera APP They're more intuitive. They're easier to use with teams so there's just a lot more features that you can do with them. The things like two way audio video recording just better overall for these video-teleconferences okay. Now I should mention that this new one plus camera this one plus a phone. One plus eight pro. That came out today I been reviewing it and I did a live stream using the camera on their which looked really good. I did facebook. Live with it But only one problem my livestream guitar player. I play songs on facebook. And I'm a right handed guitar player but I'm left handed using the Selfie Cam. So that's not good you know it's a pro and con with everything so it's kind of sad they're going to have to start making a lefty phones. I mean so my recommendation to guitar players or anybody. Who's playing an instrument that goes in your right hand is turned the phone around us. The other camera. That doesn't flip you well and the whole idea here is to use a phone. That's maybe not your main phone so it's a phone that you have lying around you dust it off there's been a million stats like the average. American. Has You know one to seven devices sitting in a drawer collecting dust so it doesn't even have to be. Your main smartphone could be an older one and further four. Those older phones. One of the tips is to use the camera on the back. That's always a better camera. Then the selfie camera and hence my little hair tie on a glass trek but also mentioned android phones but four I phones. I found the best. App was the epic e p o c Cam Webcam again. There's a free version. There's an eight dollar version. But for the twenty rovers in super simple to use with your Mac. Let's end it by talking about your rubber brand trick. Because I love that I tweeted it. I thought it was brilliant to slow down and tell everybody about your rubber band trick. Okay so you have a smartphone. One of the biggest tips that were all giving you for these video. Web conferencing calls is to put that phone down. Set It on something. But what if you don't have a tripod or a pop socket or any really great way to get that phone stable but also have it take a really good video of you? I have long hair. Take a rubber band or hair tie take glass and just prop it up just rubber band at right on there. You have an instant

Stalking a Short on Bitcoin
"Today in the markets guess what gave a market a Bush mock. I don't mean the market that I tried and did you try to count the number. Love me for hope. Anyway I'm talking more about the futures in the US. Of course. I'll have been talking a little bit more about that off light because it has been talk of the town has been moving quite extraordinarily. It's not a market that I focus my attention on or take people to try to teach people to try cryptocurrency because this volatility what we get that more frequently and now you understand why not try traditional markets and wiped away a couple years ago. To focus on crypto full time. I'm we're up on the close. We're up a thousand over thousand points on the E. Mini four point five percent. The and the s over spots are the s all the S. and P. Five hundred has resigned above three thousand again that appear at people like the fact the Mr Bloomberg has Bildt on the rice and Mr Bernie Sanders is less likely to to win. I think this seems to be a parent from what's happened to the markets are the things that come through that I've seen is the The the primary it appears the business seems to think in markets for that medicine to think. That's a Baden government a better a better outlook full business than I sanders. One and I forget. The market is a complete replication of capitalism. I it's it's what it is. It's about making money it's about you know. Markets go up if money's being made if things are positive So that Swab. It appears that Baden has been given the thumbs up by the markets as he did creep ahead. That's for sure so talking back across to To Amok at the market that I do try democracy. I do get people to learn about teach people to try his KRYPTONITE. Had A great deal moment a great deal of moving on? I'm market over the last twenty four hours with pretty much flexible there. There are a couple of exceptions in all. I'll speak to those in just a moment. One thing I wanted to talk about is if you're not following me on on facebook. You really should be Craig Cobb. That's a Double Bay for Bravo not day God on the fish when I was called as in kkob cow Hasn't yes I know you're saying on the voice corn on the cob all of that one before jolly you say we have had a stimulus. Packages can obviously Hong Kong suggestive funded. Something point something billion three point two billion. I think it was and we've had a believe. Sean has also come out and said they were going to stimulate put stimulating talk of people that need to state high getting up ten thousand dollars for doing so to rip To sort of I suppose gave the incentive to stay high because a main think about somebody who who doesn't work for office here so what is out there and who does physical labor. What are they doing right now? Steinheim and do what from high while the flora can swipe itself from harm Is it site? There is a lot of paper especially the Guide to saw on. This was what the stimulus packages around the world. There to sort of help with so people actually do take. Hey to the advice and stay home now. What does that mean well? Stimulus is not a bad thing. As long as it doesn't lay damore printing of money now of course the US has been exercising. It's it's Apparent right to print money for a number of as a matter of fact it started in two thousand nine hundred ninety recently stopped on. I think it'd just find out the press guy So far as quantitive easing goes in the printing if further money I think it'll be very very interesting and potentially very dangerous if other countries to sort through the site because you know if other countries go out and so we've got lots of money then it's I don't know how they will react to that Americans have gotten away with it because they're America. Okay that the dollar's seemingly backed by their eyesight that the defence force. Because you know it's not it's not a gold pin currency anymore and oddly enough they feel to Conley battered if other countries would go out there and press now. This is not something. I'm an expert on. I'm just looking at this guy. Well if if you know if the market's wonderful further we interest rates more or less globally the silo. We haven't got that Fatah guy. What will the weapons that we had last global financial crisis? Well let me tell you what those weapons were. Those weapons were number one. We had interest rates to cut interest rates to make it easy for bank. Selanne which was alive all right. Let's go do those opportunity there number three well if all else guys to the bottom of the barrel print more money okay. So they used all three of those to push the most the longest bull. Run that we've had in modern times. Now what are they this time will Jason Tonight? Qa that's bad it stimulant lights. It's it's hard to see what sort of weaponry that they have out there at the moment to continue to stimulate growth Markets Steinke forever. And it's going to be interesting so I said keeping a pretty you type in view. I suppose that everything's going to be okay but also the back of my mind. I am starting to read a little bit more When it comes to government policy Saudi Arabia doing on Titan little notice than I normally would just so that I can be ahead of the curve is more important to me than anything else brought now. Let's go throughout market and have a little little challenge. What's going on Bitcoin? Thousand seven hundred forty four dollars point two percent now. The thing is if you look at the two hour shot here. There's a try that I call the you've heard before the bitcoin rake and there is one way to test was not quite. It's it's better saying on the bit mixed job support. They'RE GONNA have locust one of my strategy's not they're incompletion and you haven't with the rules unless you do and if you do good if you don't stay away you're already but it is building there. We do have a bit of a daily downturn do gacy a short today. I will take good thing is I just did my scan. I've tried but long short Tries TO WIPE APU bucks. Got Pretty much everything that I'd like to have the mind pretty good pretty good watch this today. Their aims down but pretty much flat. It's two twenty three. Seventy six six up pays up point. Three Senate twenty three point five cents. We got bitcoin cash three dollars. Sorry three dollars. Three hundred nineteen dollars. Ninety five cents. It's down two point. Nine percent the biggest fuller across the board has to be said it is Vail. It's just changed. But his two hundred and thirty two dollars and ninety five cents. It's down six point. One four percent. There was a pullback into an all support level and it was a little bearish candle in that cradles on. Potentially that could have been a tribe. Did I take it did I say yes? Why Not Take it? Well a believe you find. It is rule number five in the cradle tried law coin sixty thousand forty nine cents is down a US three dollars and fifty nonsense. It's standpoint non. Barnes is in the grain. It's at one point three five Senate nineteen Dole's at a nonsense not looking at the moment for any longs on Bonnets. Although there is some support styling Resist inside and build also fuxing in the moment on trading with trends trading Focusing on tries in the direction of the daily trend that is my focus at the Mon- that's where my focus will stay because that is with a high probability opportunities live at the mum. I took it tried yesterday against bitcoin lower risk because my bitcoin trying to guidance bitcoin an Ulster Bitcoin. Looking a loss. It's been pretty crap for me this year. It's not it's not been a area of big profit it's actually being a losing area for me The perpetual contracts against doll. That's been very successful this year And that has always been a focus for the tribe simply because he got one stable which is the US. Do pitcher whether whether it's cooled but you've also got one very volatile whereas if you try against Bitcoin you got to be very volatile and this year. It's it's just you know the ones that have taken a little older. But I've had more stop outs profits having one of the one of the other prophets. I'd closed at because I was helping the old man get better than old man. Philo Look after elevate shaking soy just close the trade Before stopping it's been a bit topsy. Turvy FOR MATES. Bitcoin a much more preferring trading against the US perpetual with modum and that's why of reduce my risk Katana at four point eight cents would also point two percent. Therion classic is It is not the biggest movies. The downside anymore it was it is down six point. Six six percent who ominous at seven dollars?

"jolly" Discussed on The Midnight Story Hour
"Midnight Story our tonight we look inside. The life of a twisted nurse named Jane topping who is believed to have murdered almost one hundred people over the course of her career her lust desire for revenge and a sociopathic. Oh she'll pathak drive to always get what she desired drove her into the depths of madness like few others. Let us begin this horrific tale of the killer nurse Jolly James Top and was born as Hanoora Kelly in Boston Massachusetts. In the year eighteen fifty seven she was e- youngest of four girls and a poor Irish emigrant family early and her mother died of tuberculosis. When Hanoora was only a year old her father Peter? Kelly was a tailor an alcoholic at one point. Her father was is rumored to have sown his eyelids shut. Emad fit and became known as Kelly the crack. He tried to raise the girls as best he could but he was mentally unstable and was also suspected suspected of abusing them. Mr Kelly eventually gave up the girls to their paternal grandmother and they were later taken to an orphanage called the Boston female asylum in the city. Eddie South End on our and her sisters were raised in the orphanage with over. A hundred other children honora eventually became an indentured servant to abner an an Toppin Coppin. who lived in Lowell Massachusetts? Mrs Top and legally changed his name to Jane and even though she was never officially adopted by the family she began using the surname top. And as well even though Jane was officially released from her duties when she turned eighteen she chose to work for the family as a servant. Until Mr Mrs top passed away and their daughter Elizabeth married though her foster mother was not the nicest woman chain got along well with her foster sister as adults the two would regularly have have each other over for lunch and attend social events together after a spat with Elizabeth's husband. Jane left the top in home from there. She attended Cambridge Hospital spittle in Boston to become a nurse. Jane did well in school and had many friends to start out with her outgoing personality to friends and patients alike earned her. The nickname jolly Jane. Unfortunately she also displayed the earmarks sociopath. Often she would tell outrageous lies most of them to cover for her poor childhood she would tell stories about her father's sailing around the world in often told people her sister married an English nobleman. Another lie she told was that that her brother had been decorated at Gettysburg. By Abraham Lincoln. There are no records of a brother even existing. Jane also liked to gossip and she cheered at the dismissal. All of students said she didn't like she was also accused of a few petty thefts and enjoyed turning her friends against each other. As a result of these incidents many of her friends soon grew to detest her however to the doctors and their patients chain seemed to be a highly skilled professional while working as a student nurse chain got along well with most of her patients often. Without the patient's knowledge she would falsify their medical records to keep them in the hospital longer just in order to know them better however when it came to elderly patients chain felt that they were useless and not worth keeping alive as a result she killed over a dozen some people while working as a student nurse. Jane would often dose elderly patients with opium to see how they would react then she would raise the dosage to watch him suffer an ultimately die as time went on she began poisoning her patience with other drugs as well at times Jane would even stage a sickness with poison and nursed arsim back to a miraculous recovery. This was an obvious ploy to make herself look even more promising in the eyes of her superiors. Despite her opium experiments on patients and rumors petty thefts the doctors at Cambridge Hospital recommended chain to the Massachusetts General Hospital there. She continued her experiments with various drugs on her patients. Eventually she was let go from the Massachusetts General because of her liberal nature with opiates that she was still recommended for several over private nursing positions for wealthy patients. This suited Jolly Jane just fine while most women at the time earned around five dollars a week. Jane was making King Twenty five dollars a week as a private nurse. She was also free from hospital rules. And the prying eyes of other nurses and doctors. Jane would continue to experiment on on patients at an even more rapid pace she also began to kill more than just her patients eventually. Moving on to people. She took issue with in her personal life chains. I non patient killing was her landlord in his wife. They were both elderly and she considered them Cranky and feeble to her. They were nothing more more than trash to be. Gotten rid of shortly after Jane poison seventy year old. Mary maclear a patient in her care. Then she killed one of her close friends in order to take the woman's job at a dining hall. She was successful and earning the position that was sin fired due to complaints of incompetence and missing money from the cash drawers worse. Jane continued working as a private nurse for wealthy families around Boston for several years without detection she would frequently poison older patients. Yes and steal their belongings. She even killed fellow doctors nurses and her friends when she got bored with them. It seemed that no one was safe from Jelly Jane in Nineteen O one. Jane rented a cottage in Cambridge. From Don Davis but she did not keep up on the rent Davis's wife Mattie came to collect what was do but instead Jane killed her with a cocktail of morphine and atropine. She accompanied the body to Matty's home and Kadam at Massachusetts the chew sits for burial and was hired as a family caretaker by Alden Davis who did not know Jane had killed his wife shortly after she was hired chain moved in with the elderly. Mr Davis to take care of him. Once in the household she poisoned his two daughters and his elderly sister in order to get them out of the way a few days before his second daughter passed away from Jane's Attentions Davis himself died from what was ruled as a stroke. It is highly likely however that he was also poisoned shortly after this gene set her sights on Oromo Bringham the husband of her foster sister. Elizabeth Elizabeth often invited Jane visit the House. She grew up in and Jane sometimes took her up on the invitation on one such visit Elizabeth to the beach for picnic where they launched on corned beef. Sandwiches Che's snacked on Salt Water Taffy and drank mineral water Elizabeth's was laced with strychnine unaware of what was about to happen. Elizabeth drank the tainted water and died there on the beach after her arrest. Jane would say I held her in my arms and watched with delight as she gasped her life out after her foster sister Steph. Jane moved into bring US household in an attempt to marry him. She then kill brings housekeeper. Seventy seven year. Old Edna bannister. Jane took over Edna's housekeeping duties in order to impress Bringham with her homemaking skills. Unfortunately for Jane Her efforts were unsuccessful successful. Bring a made it clear that he did not desire her as a housekeeper or as a wife. Jane then decided to win his love by resorting to her old tricks She would poison him and the nurse him back to health. That plan didn't work either and bring him was still not interested as a last resort chain threaten to claim he had gotten her pregnant. This threat only enraged. Oromo bring him and he ordered Jane Out of the House. As a result she attempted to commit suicide aside by overdosing on morphine but was unsuccessful. She was rushed to the hospital where she later recovered. When Jane was released from the hospital she found out that a Massachusetts detective was following her? He suspected her of killing the entire family of Alden Davis the surviving members of the family. They had been suspicious of Jane and hired the detective. The body of Davis's daughter Minnie was also ordered exhumed and the autopsy investigation revealed. She died of morphine morphine and atrophine poisoning. When it came to light that the family had died from poisoning the police targeted Jane? Since she had a history of peddling drugs that had killed them nurse. Jolly Jane Toppin was arrested in Amherst New Hampshire on October twenty nine th nineteen o one in custody. She admitted to thirty one over victims. But it's believed that her final count was between seventy and one hundred. An exact count is hard to determine because no complete list of her hospital. Little victims was ever taken also at that time. Many of the wealthy New England families chain cared for wish to avoid scandal as a result they he refused requests for excavations and autopsies in the end chain was only tried for eleven murders in court. She admitted that she aspired. To who have killed more people helpless people than any other man or woman who ever lived she also claim to have committed many of her crimes for a sexual thrill when her patients were inches from death chain would get into bed with them hold them and often fondle them in a sexual manner when she was arrested. She told police that she received a powerful erotic charge from holding caressing. They're dying bodies. She also claimed that she had been jilted by a lover as a young girl and that if she had been an honest married woman she never would have committed such file. Crimes Chain Toppin was ruled insane by the courts and committed for life to Taunton State Hospital. Spital when she first went into the asylum she refused to eat because she was afraid that her food may be poisoned. This was a fate that many newspapers stated a fitting an ironic death. However Jane's murderous tendencies never really left during her years in the asylum? She would call out to the nurses saying get some some morphine dairy and will go out into the ward.

"Welcome back to the studio. It's always a pleasure so we had a lot of fun the other day in we. Yeah not only did we get to attend and a event at Ford. We got to test out the new jolly pumpkin concept longboard. Yeah and you know and one of the things I like about that one. Two Punch of that night is that it's really clear to me. That Dearborn is starting to develop a downtown that is really walkable and enjoyable. Today I was having always had things. They've always had great food in Dearborn Dearborn so many like fun culinary things to go for but I really liked it. They're getting together like this kind of walkable district. Yeah part of that is this new wagner place that houses houses Ford and will eventually house. I believe seven restaurants. Yeah it's part of their whole like Ford land thing that they're doing and if this is the kind of stuff that is we're going to see in Cork Orc town as Ford's doing more investments. I'm actually kind of excited. 'cause you know that dense walkable thing I mean that's what we're supposed to have cities absolutely all right. So let's talk about out the bell of the ball the darling of this episode longboard now. This is a concept by jolly. Pumpkin and I would say randy in general like I've always he's had really good experiences. There enjoy Jolly Pumpkin. I used to work in Ann Arbor and would go to the downtown in Arbor Jolly Pumpkin frequently and one of the things about jolly. Pumpkin is that it is much more of like a group of concepts as opposed to one concept. You know like you think about a chain. This isn't necessarily a chain. But like you think about something to me like an applebees or whatever. They're all the same but with Jolly Pumpkin. There are elements that are shared. But each place seems to have its own. Identity is completely unique meek They'll have the truffle fries of course but the you know in Arbor has muscles on the menu. Oh Wow that's interesting. You know my experiences more with if the midtown place and I feel like there's a lot more pizza and things there but Dearborn let's talk about this place. It just opened like less than a month ago or about a month ago and and I mean some of the first impressions. We walked in the door. This place is big. It's huge. Yeah I was definitely impressed by the size of the place and how how open it it is even though they have all of those decorations up well and they have all of those decorations. So the thing about this one is that it's a tiki theme. If you go to jolly pumpkins you usually see things that I'd say like a low high or whatever like science but this one's definitely much more like like hands deep into the TIKI thing. Yeah they definitely take the team and run with it They've got a bunch of fund tiki pattern booth seats They've got long boards surfboards hanging from the ceilings. There's a bamboo and places some Polynesian art art so they definitely embraced the here. Why you'd be excited because I know that you sir are a regular at Tiki bars? I am I am indeed. I spend a lotta time at lost river. Long doesn't quite go as extreme as a full-on to Hiebert but it's definitely a tiki themed place. Now my question is is like at least for me I kind of enjoy the TIKI. I think they could have gone even farther absolutely there. There's a long way they could have gone but it's a good a on ramp to Tiki. Let's call it a Tiki onramp. Although there were some really nice details details like you were talking about before we got on the air. Here about these These booths Yay and I thought it was interesting. You pulled out like a very specific thing. Yeah so each the booths are you know there's a couple of different patterns. They use for the cushions on the booths a vibrant colors with teams. Hotson things like that so one one of the things I think people might not realize about the longboard is that you know you look at the sign and you look at the marketing. They say Pacific plates pores the Longboard by Jolly Pumpkin. But nowhere in there really. Does it talks about the fact that this is actually a tasting room randy right so that means they can only serve their own products their own beers and their own spirits In addition to the Jolly Kelly Pumpkin and North Peak Beers they have civilized and old mission spirits. What does that mean? From a mixologist. Point of view helped me out because although I enjoy enjoy good tiki drink and I make a few things like boulevard which is not take you drink but like I am not as versed as you. So for example. Rum's there are dozens of with different rooms that you would find it a Tiki bar. But they is more than Bacardi in the world absolutely and even different styles of Rum's but because they they can only serve their own spirits. I saw only to listen to something that you said rum and spiced rum. So I'm not sure if those were two different like the acme round like I'm not sure I'm assuming that would probably be a silver rum. And then the spice realm is probably something with some color. In addition to the spice but you know tiki drinks also call for Agricole Rum's or Jamaican Rum's pot still coffee still different types of rum made different ways throughout the world. One of the drinks I really enjoyed me personally. I'm one of those crazy people who is a gin fan and there was a drink called the Eddie that I enjoyed a lot and I found out later. This kind of a twist on a classic T.. He drank the Saturn. Yes so the Saturn is a classic smugglers cove tiki drink smugglers. Okay so help me out. What does that mean? Smugglers cove is one of the the og tiki concepts. Okay okay they put a nice twist on and the Eddie by infusing Jin with fiscus flowers. Oh wow see that's maybe why liked it so much like even when I go to like some coffee shops or whatever and get like high Bisconti or things like that. I'm Joe I'm always a fan of it. Yeah IT'S A. It's a great flavor. A nice listen tart bright pink colors and so the high biscuits was kind of like the difference maker in that right like this is the passion fruit passion. Fruit flirt him or shot it in lemon juice the hibiscus is definitely. What makes it the Eddie from the center right and they have draft cocktails and things like that but I I think for me anyway? The Eddie was the one that I like walked away with it. I was really really happy with of the of the drinks. We tried that night. I would have to agree with that. The Eddie was my favorite too well and so the other thing about Jolly Pumpkin can is that they're really into beer and sour beer and I know you're a fan of sour beer. Can you kind of talk about what Sour Beers for the uninitiated and like why you like it so much usually usually when you think of beer you think of something that's hoppy or bitter sour beer is usually fermented by a couple of different types of bacteria So it really has this like warhead warhead. Pucker your cheeks tartness to it. Okay and that just gives it a whole different flavor profile absolutely opposite end of the spectrum sour to bitter completely different and syringe in the Pantheon of Sour Beers how does jolly pumpkin stack up a jolly good a lot of good flavors A lot of unique blends that they come up with so pretty stock solid sour beer and we try to few of them. Were there any of the ones that specifically you liked or were you just kind of in Sour beer heaven. They had a variation of their own order. CALABASA which is go to the Pumpkin With blackberry and lime okay. The black. Mary didn't add sweetness to it. You could really taste the dry just black berry. Sorry flavor well and being taproom they serve out interesting stuff they also have a Holiday beer yeah. That was good to those a little a little little strong little potent but I mean I do. I mean I was just recently at borough face all now like Oh eight point six. The nine I'm I'm in So yeah maybe you limit yourself to two of those. Yeah get yourself or call an uber. Absolutely all right so moving on because there is just so much to you cover with this place. 'cause they've got food too. Yeah they do a couple of unique things and I guess like I said all of the Jolly Pumpkins have their unique takes but They do like Polka bowls. Goals and I had a rap. Okay the flavors of that were were pretty good actually ahead a macadamia nuts and avocado Spicy sauce it was pretty good. Yeah the one thing I would look at is like I feel like it was definitely kind of strong on the flavors with the tuna. They you know just kind of tweak the balance on that a little bit. It's really good. The the tuna got kind of lost amongst those other strong flavor so just a some growing pains. Yeah Yeah like these are minor nitpicks. This is a really good dish one and I really enjoyed. I never knew that I would like pickled grapes. I had no idea that a that. That was thing and be that I would like them so much. Yeah let's Certainly unique ingredients on their Vegan TACO. And that's the other thing is so I am a An unabashed meter. I tried Vegan. tacos I was in honor of our co host Fen. Who couldn't make it to the event who's always into the I would I should say the healthier sides of things and you know what they executed it really? Well I think what I like about it is. I'm big into if you're GONNA do vegetarian or Vegan food it really tastes like what it what it is and they they did a really nice job with the flavor balance and everything on that and then Cheyenne was also with this. She had the chicken sandwich which is a jolly pumpkin staple as well. Yeah we tried all these. It was on the menu here too. So you know if you've been to another jolly pumpkin and want to stay in a comfort zone than you know the truffle fries. Chicken Sandwich when one thing about that chicken sandwich I thought and and I had forgotten about this is I think it's actually a Saracho infused Bun yes. That was a interesting experience interesting. I enjoyed I personally. Liked it a lot. Well you know I think this is a nice addition to downtown Dearborn Michigan and Oakwood corridor corridor is seeing a lot and you know your closest stuff you could stop by this place like on the way to Greenfield village on four. Yep and then there's just like Dearborn Dearborn got a just a a bunch of interesting things and if you're not feeling like you're Middle Eastern food when you head out that way or you're going through downtown Dearborn I mean I say thumbs up on in this place I do too yeah. I'll definitely visit with friends when I'm in the area all right. We'll have linked tune in the show notes and Randy. Thanks so much for coming on another culinary adventure my pleasure pleasure.

Welcome to the BOB and Sheri show now with five people off Santa Claus and Jerry. I think everyone now broadcasting from the Bob and Sheri Studios does. It's Bob and Sheri yes. It is and welcome into art show Sherry will be by in just a few minutes. You got a few things going on on with one of the kids. It's no big problem but something mom had to take care of a room for her in just a bit nicely along view. Todd is also doing some outside of the studio. He'll be in here too and it's just maximum me right now but that's all right. Max is such a big fan of movies. I bet he remembers some of these. Things is that I'm going to be talking about a movie company Put together a little list of behind the scenes facts from movies Christmas movies. Especially these are. These are all Christmas movies and these are some interesting things about how these things got made. So let's start out with the shower scene seen in Elf. It wasn't in the original script it was added after director. John Barbro ever. Oh Yeah learned that Zoe Zoe. This chanel was a good singer so added her into that. She's a really good Jan.. It's right also the fight between Will Ferrell will and the fake Santa could only be done once because the department store. Christmas decorations took weeks to make that. That always blows my mind when there is a scene in a movie where you have got to get it right the first time like you've got an expensive car car like a Ford car that you take off a bridge or something like that. It's it's got to be shot and done the first time because you're looking at you. Know hundreds of thousands of dollars the review issue Bruce Willis had to do a lot of things barefoot in diehard. Diehard is not a Christmas Christmas movie but I guess it was out that time right is out that time and some people considered a Christmas music right movie so he did a lot of things what what was the most memorable thing he did as far as Louis jumped when there was an explosion. Was that it walking on broken glass. Oh that he was walking barefoot on broken glass. How did he do it? He actually wore fake rubber feet. which if you look hard enough according to the The person who wrote this review you can. I can see that. They are fake next time that comes on TV. I'm going to look for that in a Christmas story. Which is my favorite Christmas movie? And I think maybe favored Robert Persons movie of a lot of people. I just love it. I'm GonNa Watch it again this year. You know the scene. It's it's a little bit hard to look at where Ralphie's friend Flick's Alex Tongue is stuck on the flag but he can't move and they leave the poor kid there. Everybody just goes homes as nothing we can do about it. So here's how they did that. He didn't just he didn't just put his tongue there and pretend that the moisture from his tongue froze onto the poll. They actually had a a hidden backhand Kim and it's it sucked his tongue into all yup elite. Did you know that I did know that you know I would like to go to the town. Is it in Ohio. I believe Ohio yet of And it's a museum now right Somebody wanted as it there. Yeah before Jim Carey got the lead in how the grinch stole Christmas. There were two other people that were considered for this part. And I'm not sure if they turned it down. Or if The Studio said Kim Carey's Jim Carey and he would play this very well. The first person they looked at to play the grinch was Eddie Murphy. Who I think would have been great to that and the second in person I think would have been so interesting? Jack Nicholson was considered as the grinch. Yeah too much Jim. Carey's that too much you know it's interesting. I don't really like that movie I love the TV show. I mean that's a and even the TV show. Because I guess there's however many minutes there are twenty minutes really of yeah because the story was so short they had to add things eggs into it the whole business with a sled going down the one thing and then going all the way back all that stuff. They had to add that business. Chuck Jones there because the story just wasn't long enough that long enough the whole thing you're right it's a kids book. And how many kids do that. That book is for kids. That are what six years old. That's right that's interesting and that was Chuck Jones. The Emma Thompson was in love. Actually which I know Sherry just adores that movie and I do too and she played the spurned wife and her husband gets involved with this Really Sexy Yang Office Colleague and Emma Thompson and they had where a small when I say. Small wasn't heavily padded but a fat suit so that she looks a little more matronly. When compared to this young lady who had to be like a size zero? I thought Emma Thompson looked fantastic. I never realized that. And I'm with you yeah. I thought she looked beautiful in home alone. The photo of buzzes girlfriend is actually a picture of a boy. In a wig. This is interesting. Disney had a strict policy against hiring. ex-cons I don't know if it's still goes on and people have said you know somebody is something wrong but they paid their price in the real bill but anyway they had a strict policy against the hiring ex-cons they made an exception. So that Tim Allen could star in the Santa Trade he did time for selling drugs drugs. Long longtime yeah and that was made in Nineteen ninety-four and toy story the following year. You know he's one of the biggest voice over artists in the country right now doing commercials and stuff Tim Allen. Yeah he does those pure Michigan pads and I think Budweiser and some other. He's a really revered us over. God He's a really talented guy. Always the Santa Clause two. Tim Stayed in character around the child. Actors the real little ones because some of them thought he was not just blanked San. They thought that he was Sanford. And so when they those kids were around he would stay in Santa Claus character which is sweet so they are they are ten things. Some of you knew you knew more than I did and Hello Mary crispy scuba watching mall of the business that Iran right now. It's Bobbins Jerry. Talk back to back each on the free sherry the APP and leave us a message so I was in a restaurant with my wife. Mary I think it was last Saturday. And they had a song by Mariah Carey. Playing wingnut the Christmas Song that I'm going to refer to in a moment here but they had a vision of love which was her first number one song and I just sat there and listened to it I said I I I said I'm GonNa talk for just want to hear this because I haven't heard that song in a long long time I don't know why and it is an incredible song and her voice especially especially I mean. That sounds like over twenty years old. Now right Her voice especially back then was just thirty years old. Is it really. Oh yeah just so amazing. It's it's still a great song. I think she wrote it to when she was an act. She was a Not An actress. She was a waitress and She she just is such sure remarkable singer. Yeah she could be a little Kooky but I think she's a great great talent and that brings us to all I want for Christmas is you. It has made Mariah Carey the queen of Christmas music. It really has song has broken Guinness World Records a few days ago. The Guinness people appeared at Mariah's Christmas show in Las Vegas to present her with three official records number one the highest charting holiday song on the US US hot one hundred for a solo artist number two the most days in the United Kingdom singles top ten for Christmas song and number three the most streamed track in twenty four hours spotify or a female artist it logged more than ten point eight million streams one day last December. This this song has so excited her career. There's no other way to put it. And she's doing holiday shows now which he can probably probably if she wants to do forever right his just based on this song just I mean I mean there are there are songs that are Christmas songs like rocking around the Christmas tree and Jingle rebel rock that have been with us for fifty years Everybody can pick their own the Christmas song by knocking and And so many other artists but this thing has become the big go. Who've it's really really hard to get away from this on anyway and I never ever awesome great? So that's the first music. I'm this is very random. I want to switch by the way she'll be in just a few minutes here she's doing something with one of the kids should be in just a few few minutes. So that's going to put that aside all I want for Christmas and I want to go to another song this song. I know this is going to be random this song. It is the most popular song in the history of the country of Norway..
