"No oh hello maryland. Good morning. Dan how are you. I'm doing fine. How are you doing good morning. Oh you know pretty good pretty good and there's some big strong men doing just looking in the mirror aren't you. Well yeah strongmen. There's at least three things wrong with that statement Big strong hands. I'm not even the rain. i'm i'm small week. I mean there are better words for example diminutive a pick a risk I've you know. I got this Tubular unit down here. I'm not sure it's doing that much. Good at this point. You know you can use it from use it for trading but it doesn't always start and stop the way i'd like. Yeah yeah yeah my my prostates. The size of a racquetball. Have you had it measured or what. Well i don't know what kind of work does he do. I mean racquetball would be for you your man of your stature in age it be actually context. Peter jackson kind of thing is e. Make wizard look tall table a home. I guess so. I don't know. I do what i can with what i've got but the big strong men are outside. That's funny how much okay all right. Let's keep it friendly. They're outside doing something i think. It's the pacific gas and electric company and there are maybe three times a year. They just come out with a bunch of trucks and then they just pound things for a few hours and they pound and pound and pound. Can you tell after they're done. What's been done. Yes sometimes the pavements have different color. They don't provide documentation and sometimes they're real good about that. You know what this enough of this wallowing hypocrisy The other thing. I was gonna say. Oh gosh dan. I don't think we say indian summer anymore. It's native american summer Here in san. That's when it's sunny and raining at the same time. No that's when the double double spanks his wife right here. My private office tower. It's seventy six point five degrees fahrenheit and it's forty five percent relative humidity. That's here at my desk. If i go to different Eve eve's eve's room around here of course they'll all be different because the algata corporation has gas lighting me. Every different are years. Things still stuck up on your your stuff. Still follow up hell. Yeah hell yeah heck yes. They're doing great up here now. it's in the very. They're very pretty and so far. The scotch brand thirty pound tape holding so much. So dan that. From the the the amazon for the the seattle fulfillment company. I bought a large role of this tape for future. Use to have around which actually kind of a thing i wanted to talk about. Yeah Thinking ahead thinking ahead. I need to update the api url for my sab nc beady plus I need to buy more d. roster. Oh yeah arresting. That's the project should talk about that too and that's holding up great so i'm very happy about that. What else is happening. Very very warm here and i. I know this is one of those things when it comes to to to weather whereas you say climate I think remember. You're the climate not the sky and people what people don't understand or don't care to understand is that like everything context the end. I would have to say that. September is the month of context. I'm thinking a lot about context Should write that down. I'll do that to prepare in that context and Camera lenses okay. Okay 'cause it was a full moon. I can talk about tonight. The last night. That was the. I don't know i don't. I don't follow that. I did put a lincoln to show notes about a thing. I learned this week about the different kinds of twilight. There's three kinds. I'm not talking about the book was going to get you. Get the book you get the movie. And we pan up on a deer Drinking drinking from a crystal clear stream. You know what i'm saying. Yeah you should watch parks and rec. Yeah i watched that. We watched that episode this morning. We got our bagels its features will forte. You have time for bagels on like a like a school day. I haven't got time for the pain on school. They yeah i mean like today mahmoud dropped her off because i have this program with you sure and i needed time to be late for the program because apparently i just can't get it together on tuesday morning early to start start the podcasting we stand. It's not performance. Dan also right down the word performance. Talk about that performance of okay. You know. I don't know why even prepared because really if i just talk long enough off plane and talked about i feel like we're was i So the the stuff is hanging on the wall fine. It's more context and september is the month of context. Yeah and preventing childhood cancer. But i think the context might be more important. If i'm being honest okay and the thing is is the all. San francisco reigned for twenty minutes and san francisco. Everybody's freaking out or you know it's always san francisco with me. So it's it's more than sixty degrees in san francisco people. It's just it's it's all you know. It's all context. If you you know of the show. John's here accusa. Like all the guys on that terrible podcast. Like to make fun of california and say things like. We don't have weather here or that you could just leave everything outside because we don't have weather here those kinds of things but we don't have the infrastructure for dealing with warm and so for us that's not a problem as we all know. San francisco's a very strange climate. And even more so. My my neighborhood has strange climate because as you know or may now i live in the western part of town and it. You know it's it's fifty two degrees most most days but it's warm and that's really only had for that had put i put in a putting put pins in many things. Yeah you wanna talk. Perhaps about a new operating system update on my list. How are you doing. I'm sorry. I'm kinda plowing through this because i'm still getting together. I barely had time to make a coffee because ran late. It's my fault are you doing okay. How how's life there in your neck of the woods. Yeah good everything's good. I don't have any Let me complaints for you. Who listen is is what. I always think who would listen. I don't think. I don't think anyone we no one. Yeah they you know. Another one of those goods distinctions. Listen versus here. I got to put that on. The list started keeping track of all my words where i like to make a distinction. And that's a list was words. I hate words. I love distinctions and differences And what was that one. What was wanna just said Where i i don't know Oh you know. I guess put distinction versus difference or as dared i would say difference vivant viva las vegas. Yeah set. my soul on fire is what he said saying about that context to september cancer. Who'd listen listen versus here here my list so far yeah i. I don't even need to put a pin. This was a few. I think you're going to now. Okay right well. It was the first one. It's always the first thing with me. Yeah no costly versus expensive. I didn't i wasn't expecting now on that one took arguably my arguably my biggest one You know a lot of these. You're going to surprise you the listener. Hello cost versus expensive. Does cost a lot of money or does it cost too much money for what you get right. There's a difference. Yeah now now. I'm gonna use cheap in two different ways. Thrifty versus cheap. Is that person thrifty. Or the cheapskate. Right right and then. I'll i love this one. Now this is this is this is this is. This is not a distinction without a difference or a difference inexpensive versus cheap and now that's different from costly versus expensive. It could be the near mirror version of near mirror. A that's a good episode of star trek inexpensive versus cheap. Right right. did this not cost very much money for something. That's kind of valuable or was this. Let's say cheaply. may you got reasons versus excuses. They are different. Oh i know that one. That one's important. I think that's important. This could be a whole series here. So maybe she put a medium sized pin in this house versus home office versus work. Lucky versus fortunate is it. Is it that. This person is lucky. Or is it that. This person is fortunate. Because there's a difference there generous versus careless distinction versus difference in listen versus here. These these are these are these are concerned student which me what you say. You know what. I'm saying Trump trump beat dan. Well my name is merlin. And i got an excuse. M my main reason is i like your caboose. It's expensive not cheap. is it thrifty yours. Cheap costs your expensive. Get sorry if i'm a creep. Lucky versus fortunate. What can it mean careless. Versa generous worst. I've ever seen thinking versus difference. Is there any difference. Darah was french and he lived in france. That's really did you. Is that often freestyle. No i i wrote it a real. That's why i was late and thanks for starting late yeah no. I had to write a rap. That was tangentially. Semiotics about jacques. Derrida you can have a construction site but can you have a deconstruction site. Am i right. Anyway it's great to be here on the wall. Thank you so much good to be here. I'm not on the show floor. I'm here in my upper office. In quick tower ooh battery. I'm eve rooms on it. Running low seventy six point five degrees. And i got no fans on because i'm podcasting. I don't want to have excessive knows muslim. I'm going to try new microphone. I think i've made an error. I bought a microphone. I'm going to try. I keep buying microphones and going back to the one. I've got what what microphone. Are you on which one that. You've got the one i've got. Yeah and the one that i've used for a while is the elect and we're trying to do is off the down electro voice s e. fifteen. I have a spreadsheet about this. Yeah actually i may have found a use for air table. Because i think. I'm going to use that to my mic test today Yeah i don't know. I was kind of a rash decision. Oh so one. I use ari twenty by the electro voice company standard broadcast mike in most true radio stations across the country. Yes more than an sm seven be yes hasn't seven is more like musical studio recording. That's what jon morgan roderick uses. Yeah and i. I've got two or three of those that i use pretty consistently. They're great Really a be. Yes and the one's gonna test out side by side. Oh so the new one that i got. There's a lot of buzz in more my slacks about well. Not my trousers. Okay here we go trousers versus pants. That's important. I wanna write that down. Yeah 'cause you know you say the wrong thing it's like you know fanny Versus bomb bag. You know what i'm saying. Oh we just say trousers rousers versus pants. Yeah yeah electricity. Sorry twenty one. God is the sure. Mvp seven which i think is a step bowed down and sideways. Because i keep. I used to use the seven be okay. I reviewed this one I did i wind. Mvp seven. i talked about a lawn to the youtube review of it too. Good mike is it. Yeah it is and what's nice about. It is in the software stuff. Yeah i mean what what i like about it is that it works fine as a as a usb mike and then if you want you can plugin as acceleration to preempt and get something pretty pretty close to the sim seven b. And for me. It's definitely worth the tradeoff because Especially for people who maybe don't want to invest in a pre amp or who don't want to have more elaborate setup or who travel around -actly cute and small throw it in his suitcase but i don't know i mean you know god i don't need any of this stuff is my voice. Sounds like a broken reed instrument. I don't think there's you can't mike reed instrument and make it sound any better. You know it's like renna says you know sachs's sachse sachs's sacks you know And so i'm gonna try that The seven be now. do you do that on. What are the settings here. I've got it by okay. Okay okay as i'm going to be on the butt of the mike mike's but you've got the the slaves it's kind of like a dip switch. Yes okay so five. Got it set. You know what this is boring. We'll come back to this. We can talk about maxine anytime you want okay. I don't know much about him. And i don't know how to use them i think. Gosh how does one say. I don't know what i'm allowed to say right now. But there's There's this software ways to do compression and limiting and that's getting better every day you're talking about with the mike software just in general just in general. Yeah sure there's apps that i use that have interesting emergent features that allow you to do some very cool stuff and i'm going to play with but here's the thing you are not alone. You are one of three different people who create audio from my voice right so you. Jim medicine door and quin rose. All three i send them. Your son used to send you like three or four files this remote side. So you've got your you know. So what i do now. I record four tracks. Whenever i record a podcast. Audio hijack makes it very easy right. So i got one and i think it's pretty cool the way i put this together. It's probably not ideal but it works. So there's one called raw. Were merlin after dark merlin. Raw is just. It's pretty doing ladies like to be honest. Well it's the one i'd like to think they like. Yeah i wish. They like merlin. Fancy but we'll have more on that in a minute merlin. Raw raw dog. Merlin is just. I think volume adjustment and done almost nothing to it. I've got another one. That is the other side of the call. Being being you john roderick or alexandra cox and then my new innovation called everything. The very last thing. I do is pipe those two things into a. It's always two things with audio hijack that gets piped into something everything which is just a guide track in case. Because i know when you edit these things sometimes it gets confusing and when you got you know you've had a call drop or something you know. It's a long call with lots of people. It's nice to have a reference track to compare against if nothing else if you've had a three or three hour call eight people who really nice to know whose file is eight seconds longer or shorter during the time that we talk. Oh there's been drift or whatever right and then do one call fancy which neither you nor quinn nor jim like. But i think sounds good. Okay i think it makes me sound more like john. Dickerson and i can tell you what this does. Because it's raining right now and audio hijack. So merlin fancy you got the because volume and then meter dino's ten bandy q. And then goes through multi band compressor lit louis dollars multi band and that records now now. Okay you know what settle this for me. You're an audio professional. It seems to me that audio professionals like the raw dog. And and but don't like the fancy is it aesthetic. Is it practical. Tell me why you like me raw. Well there are a number of reasons. Why the first. One that i can think of is going to be. Because if you're giving your file to someone who's going to be doing audio editing that implies they're going to be using things like some things you just mentioned they're going to be using e. q. They're going to be doing compression. Probably a little a little bit obviously go trying to make both or all tracks sound like sound sound the same as close as they can and typically when you do that you want the highest quality original audio that you can get but you also want the least modified audio to start with me about that. Well let's say that. I'm doing a mix. Let's say it's it's Me and let us have three other people on the track with me. And and those people are all recording locally. So we don't have to worry about skype artifacts or call drops quality they. They all have. Let's off a nice. Mike the olive decent technique. And they're all sitting there in front of their my proper distance and everything is good and they just send the audio. I don't want anything on their audio. Because i'm going to do all that work and let's say that two of the people that are on this call have higher voices right And two of the people have lower voices one of the per one of the people. Maybe there might technique is good. But they're just not as loud as the other people using in the parlance of our times and so and then another person. They've got some background noise on their track because their air conditioner was running. Maybe they use one of those. I don't want to name names. But there are people who are pretty good. Podcast people but the for the longest time they would use. Like those weird gamer headsets. Yeah sure sure made them sound like they were talking through a toilet paper. Tube right yeah. That's a good example. And so i wanna get their audio as pure from source as i possibly can because not only am i just am. I just tweaking four. What i think would sound good for their voice. But i'm also adjusting it to match and blend more nicely with everyone else's voices as well get that weird like msnbc effect. Pick on them but like no people on different kinds of things this is on webex by cisco and like you know. This person is is talking into a toilet and you get all these and then and then you know. Somebody's video gets off sketchy. And then peter hotels peter hotels. Can i please give you a makeover. God please let me give you a makeover euclid the most terrifying troll and thank you for your work so raw dogging as you call it in. The industry enables you to start with the flattest highest quality version. And then you've got something to build on in the same way perhaps okay. Here's a way that it might make more sense if somebody who's dumb like me. Is that like when you record your tracks for music recording multi-track music recording. You probably don't want you know movies com hard coded subs you. Don't want hard coded reverb or hard coded. Well maybe story on guitar but like voice you would not want. You would want that to stay as we say dry absolutely so that then you could do whatever with it and not not only that. I'll take. I'll take this next level for you please. Do i need it when when you are in that situation as it as we're talking about right now where you've even if it's just one person you do want that clean dry signal that come in as much as possible because then you have. It's like the original source. And so you can say to yourself. You know what i think for this particular episode with these other people on it under these situations he needs just a little tiny bit of compression. But not a lot. No you when you're doing your settings right now you're recorded you recorded your voice and you've played it back to yourself and most likely you've said i'm going to tweak this so that i sound good to me right now there's no really that's a really good point. My guess. Is that your confirmation bias if you will is that When when you're doing this you're thinking maybe even unconsciously this now sounds like what i sound like in my own head when i talk. It's what i wish. I saw john dickerson even better and so friend of the show john dickerson. When when i do it editing Tweaking your voice. I'm trying to make you sound the way you sound to me. When i've talked to you in person or wish wish fulfillment yeah So that's probably why people like jim. Mets endorphin i would And i learned a lot from jim door to so choose really. He's really smart and he's really curious and he's pretty he's he's such a nice guy he's so great to work with but he i pick it up on slack. Where he's like he's always kind of like trying to learn about the next thing and stay ahead and like not just for purposes but like for professional development reasons okay. I think you've made a really good case. Another way to put this to for me to refer rephrase what you just said better You said it better. You did that but Where where it would be like me saying. Okay so this is what i think i should what i think. I should sound like in a finished audio product. But there's a couple of problems with that because that's how it is with you. One problem is is. Maybe that is actually how i want to or should sound and the other one is going to sound pretty fecta and not very massage for the person who's going to do the production of it. Yeah now likes fancy is what i'm getting from this right. And if if i didn't know anything about editing or didn't want to spend any time editing i would love your Tweaked version. I would just put it in and bounce. The shown call it a day You know but You know no one wants that. I understand nobody wants that. I understand we got a lot here. What were we talking about. Before mike's apparently roderick. I talked about this yesterday. And he mentioned that he talked to you about it that john feels a key started really dropping the thread and conversations. I forget it was talking about. He keeps talking about that and it doesn't happening on the show but then i was kind of like wool. But that's been happening to me my life so i don't win is it that you'll when is it not like that and he does find a way to always wrap it back around. He does the full podcast reach around but like like meal time. My i've i dropped five threads at a time. Yeah he's he's. It might be more dan. I don't even know how many threads dropped and arguably. I think that's the problem. Yeah right. he's aware that he's dropping. The threads address of his. Aren't we just keep going corey. He's still he's got the faculties to know he's losing. Which is its own kind of special pain. Yeah yeah title. And that's the name of that tune. So what do we got here. We've got pro performance of utterances Learning to think ahead and what that means context and camera lenses. Catch the vase unless yesterday's roderick. That's not it. And i got to fix my ass. Abn's api url right. Wow sab ncb. Api url. Yeah i i i changed my api. You know Took token token not talking about marijuana Never is there is there even an api. For teaching sean. Dan where it's a. It's a big week. It's a huge week. We've got a. We've got a lot to talk about. I assume perhaps you would honor me by telling me about something that you like feels like feel get out of that gestation and getting the mail that's right feels is my favorite. Cb d of all time. I love their stuff. It's really really great. Why and what does it do. That's that's what i will tell you about if you experience stress if you have inside if you have chronic pain if you have trouble sleeping at least once a week you are not alone. Many of us have some or all of these issues going on even at the same time and see what he can really help you with. These things and feels makes the best. Cbd they make premium cbd. They deliver it right to your house which is pretty awesome The it does help to reduce stress anxiety pain and sleeplessness. And that's how. I got interested in in a few years ago and it really did change game. It helps me sleep better. It helps me fall asleep faster. It definitely helps with recovery post workout which is important to me and all you do see police a few drops of feels under your tongue and you will feel the difference within just a few minutes. But you've got to find the right dose for yourself. That's very important because everybody is different. So you've gotta leave room to experiment like over the course of a week or so you might need to take more or less and There's no way to know except by trying but they also have the really good human support over it. Feels you. Can call their hotline. They have the cbd hotline. You can come up and you can say like this is what i wanted for. They'll say well the and they kind of guide you and if if you wanna try they even have a little a little flight of indifferent strength so you could try it in different strengths and see which one is right for you. And that's that's what's important but what's really cool about it is it. It works naturally to help you feel better. There's no hangover. there's no addiction. You just generally feel better and you can would. I like about feels the most is that they will deliver to your door and they deliver it every month.

It really sucks to run out of it and then you've got to order and get await have it being like a member just eliminates all that trouble. And that's that's what i do and i'm really happy with feels like i said it many many times and i've been saying since i started doing ads on podcasts. Sixteen years ago you can pay me to tell you about a product. But you can't pay me to tell you that. I like it unless i really do and i really do like feels no. There's no amount that they could pay us what you're telling them not to lie so you're going to get back up the cbd money truck to your house even then you would say listen. Save your money.

Midnight special the midnight special. The high heard about the The midnight strangler feels Thank thank you thank you feels. It feels puck. i want to talk about. I was fifteen. I do before that. I had something funny. I had before that to go. Oh well you. I i i all i wanted to say was talking about. I was fifteen. But i have some tiny odds and infinitesimal sods but before we get to. The police continue well. Here's one here's one you'll like so I'm you know. I'm in this long process of educating children as they get older and growth. That is a long process and one of one of the classes that i teach them. It's called music appreciation. And so i've been teaching them about. There's film appreciation and movie appreciation and nothing else matters. That's the only thing that i teach and with the cork corcuera. Yeah that's your and so talking about pilates. Okay through through through music appreciation in those classes. We're exploring the sort of What what you would call like jam bands of the nineties fans that would get up and they would play music that you could argue that the music is divided into segments called songs but not really and similarly jam style bands. Lake the thing. Is you on a continuum you've got you've got totally improvisational stuff like especially in jazz. Almost totally improvisational but then gets something like fish or even early maybe rush. I don't know what we've got like now. I don't think they're improvising. But there's gonna be flights of fancy and rearrangements but then you've also got like again from parks and rec david matthews crash into me dave matthews. Yeah for me the all time. Most sort of been dr spin-doctors spin doctors. You would of course on papa john popper does he count absolutely blues traveler lose traveler an and i would also throw in their grateful dead. And but also. I mean there's some allman brothers. You could put them in there right. You can put. Oh yeah saints okay. So we're talking about this. And i was playing the guitar the other day. I was playing a a A blues blue blue blue stroz travelers song. Try my new harmonica. This called called run around. I won't give me the run around. And so i I remembered that. I had seen a good performance of this on the letterman show and so i decided that as part of That lesson i would show them a couple different songs by among among other bands blues traveler. And so i of course because they're children they can't live. Just listen to a song. They have to see that has to be a youtube video or their attention is elsewhere. They can't pay sure to unless it's delivered within you know in in programming we talk about. Api's talk about rappers rather band. Dan the attention span the have a youtube wrapper around anything for it to be interesting to okay. So i'm showing not as in hip hop but as in wrapping for president. Yes and And so i showed them the blues traveler song runaround which they liked i said no they had another song wasn't as big of a hit but it's also a good song and he has a good harmonica solo in called the hook. The hook and i was. I was pointing out that not only the harmonica vest which we talked about. Also the questions were acid is. What's wrong with his leg so we had to talk about the car accident. The other thing. I got laid probably he. He was in a car accident on his way to record the third album. Why do i know this. And and so he was in car accident and recovered from it but he has like a cane sometimes. that's why he has the cane. It's not to be cool. It's because he actually used a cane and and so we're watching the hook. And so as soon as i put this video on hook google i. Do you know Blues traveler. And it's in the shown on so i put this one on the show nuts. Blues traveler hook. Lederman is how i found this one and as soon as the video starts i just hit play on it instantaneously. Both of my kids age ten and thirteen almost fourteen instantly. Their hands fly up over their ears. Dad stop what are you doing. Stop and so. I hit pause video and yes it. Don't get ahead of me. And i said i said what's wrong. It's not a bad song and they're like that sound. What does that sound like. Oh my it's kids. It's called music and they're like no. No high pitched sound in the background. I'm like so. I hit play on like dad like it's loud. What are you doing. I'm like there is no sound and they're like and so my son looks at my daughter and and he just says he's old and she just nods like all right right so it wasn't deliberate. It was just some kind of like there is in fact is from the conversion from vhs. Youtube or something. There's a high pitched sound. I cannot here. And i've been around. I was the you look nice today. Guys were in. I wanna say philadelphia. We'd entered into this nighttime and we enter. We're come back from drinks or something. We're in the public square area and they're all these. I think where was long story. It doesn't matter where but there are all these signs that were like you're not allowed to hang out here. We're gonna play weird. Sounds and freak you out. And i think adam pretended he could hear it but scott. I totally couldn't hear it. I i never hear those things and this you know. I know my kids already know about high pitch. Sounds at adults. Can't hear that kids can here. And so i've now sent this video too. Many people that i know of varying ages from and you can find out if you're older not by listen. Fry like like from their late twenties to their late fifties. I've sent this to people and it's without the older. You are the less you hear it. But once you're like late thirties early forties. You're not hearing it at all. So i put it in the show notes. I know you're not gonna hear 'cause. I couldn't hear it own but i would love for audience. I cannot hear my wife and also she thinks both have hearing different with different. Oh let's call it complimentary hearing problem right but like yesterday that i mentioned it's hot so i'm in the lounge two rooms away from her and i'm i'm watching a me. They're watching youtube or stupid. Msnbc or something. it's. I've arrived home from the office. And this is the time when i work on some of my little projects that i have going on. I got charge my solar lights. I gotta go get the drill in mount that outside and i do my projects and also. It's hot so i have the dyson fan on at level ten and from this. Just it's i. I love her so much. Dan but i here not again and and i i six or nine times a day. I have to say to her honey. I cannot hear you when you're in the next room and she'll say like always talking to myself. I was okay. Could you not do that because i. I don't know if you want me to hear you. And i don't wanna seem inattentive at all but like i. I can't hear any of that. I really am like somebody in a hearing aid commercial and thank god for hearing aids. They're great. I should have won. Probably almost definitely Is a cool trick you can do now with your air pods. Which is really neat. But i I'm like what am i yelled to her. Two rooms away in a way that she could hear. I said what about this situation makes you think i can hear anything. You're saying because she had knee surgery and can't move. Ronald and i said hey. Look i'm not trying to be a dick. But i honestly i really and i said to her. I says what i just said to you which i don't want to seem inattentive. And if you're talking to me. I want to respond. You know but there is kind of that. The problem is there's also the kind of lightweight pseudo communication one does in the house. And i've tried to make the case to my family that a lot of times communication is not about the confernce of information. It's about saying i love you or about bonding and so i am aware of that and i appreciate that and i like the light wake sort of. I guess we're running out of milk. You know That that i'm fine with things like that or i know. I'm not going to hear the sound dan. Blues traveler hook live youtube. I'm gonna listen to that. I wouldn't even be able to hear. Hear dave is the problem. Oh well what. I would like for our listeners to do a especially or actually if you're not a parent or you don't have kids you can still see if you hear it. But then i don't care what what you here But if you do have kids. I would love for you to say kids. I want you to watch musil. Don't tell them tell call and see what their reaction is. My kids reaction to it was way more than i would've guessed it would be and of course there's an amount will probably will birth starts screaming and it'll be she'll say what's that high pitch sound and i'll go blues traveler. Yeah yeah and we'll be able to compare notes. I would love that. Dan where people find show notes for episode. Five four seventy back to work program. Oh back toward backed massage. Five four seven as a place to go good place to go. Because i had to mount to quickies. I had to Why is this in here. who cares. I just thought this was interesting. So So i finally found outside solar-powered security lights. They're just lights but led lights. I finally found one. That i super like. And i'm very happy with and we can put it notes if you want It's really cool. So it's got a giant in scientific terms pretty giant ass solar collector and then it's got a pretty good motion sensor and it's real. These things should be stupid when you try to get smart with these things is when you screw up rate and like. There's i've had other ones where there's three different modes and this one works like this man. You can't tell it is because this which is on the inside man. This is totally simple. You mount the god damn thing. It collects the sun. You know i. It's a massive incandescent gas and then there's a there's a sensor is a sensor and if it detects motion the late fees on for thirty seconds until motion stops which is exactly what you want for this so i put it on our back porch with which faces west. Don't be creepy. And so the the the sun incandescent gas was pointing at the collectors. So give them good charge just to kind of get them off the ground and brian. Yes and then. And then i what was still light. Got melodic drill. Went down mounted it in an area where i wanted it to be. Where would collect the collector of sun and would eliminate unnecessary area. You don't always get both of those things in san francisco and and then it says myself. I says i should go check this out later. And so i wanted to remind do i want a reminder to go check it at sunset maybe i mean it would work at sunset but i was thinking about like how sunset sunrise twilight. These all mean kind of different things and if you go to some weather weather good dark sky courtesy of apple computer you go dark sky and it'll say okay sunset tonight at seven twelve pm pacific time but like that's not when it's dark that's like i think when the sun goes down so he ended up saying son said times san francisco my zip code bbb. And i found this really cool site. Dan did you know that. There's different kinds of twilight dawn and dusk. I mean i know magic hour but that's the limit of my knowledge. Yes yet magic hour. Yeah that's we'll call on. The days of thunder was one i'm thinking of What's the one. What's the parents malik. Movie they shut the entire movie a cold now twirling dawn and dusk so i was looking at. And there's there's there's like for twilight and not not the one from the book you get civil twilight twilight and astronomical twilight. Ditto for dawn dusk. Did you know that. I didn't know this is news me and it has to do with lake so like just off the dome so here. We go nautical twilight occurs when the center of the sun is between six degrees and twelve degrees below the horizon. Twilight period is less bright than civil twilight and artificial light is general requires early required civil twilight so basically civil twilight is i think the one with the longest amount of time anyway. I just thought it was interesting page. I'm at a point in life. Were a couple of things in life. Excite me 'cause it's you know. I'm always happy to discover. There's a tv show. That's really good that i haven't seen In this case it's the tv show hbo's room. And i'm also excited. When i learned a new fact that tells me something about the world. They didn't know. Stick curious what i'm saying. Kids nautical twilight band rome. It's got dr trainspotting. Rome storage drama. Television series created by. John milius william james amelia's from apocalypse. Now yeah the show and its seasons later. It's really good. And it's john roderick approved yet chicken it. Hbo's room ibew. That's one reason. I sleep has been kind of wonky. Lately is Is i've been watching way too much. rome but it's the guy you know the red haired guy from trainspotting who's also the doctor on grey's anatomy but you know th the star watching tonight then. I guess it's good. It's really good. It's got manse raider in it. Oh of course so. Let's get back first principles. There are seven actors in the entire island that we call the uk. And so this one's got a lotta. Get lindsay duncan who played She's play she played hot. Droid in a star wars movie. And she's been lots of things she's also. The lady gets a facelift in that one. Really good episode of sherlock. She's in it. Lindsay duncan Amidst all this milk inflation that we're living through right now. She is truly likeable and she's in it and An immense raider. The guy who's the head of the where called the wilder people where they called the dark beast's the people who live out in the snow on the other side of the wall. What are they called whiled links. He's the head of the wild wings remembering and john goes in parlays with manse raider. He plays the titular. Caesar was not tischler. His cities tischler City state but mance raiders in it And there's lots of good people in it and then i like discovering facts. Yeah yeah and then the finally before we good iowa's fifteen. I don't know i'm i'm having a real struggle right now and i i have not. I think i must have talked about this here. Yes i'm positive. I've talked about this here. This is thought technology. I've been batting around for a year. So which is just repeat myself. Because it's i like to repeat myself when i myself is that I think it's shortsighted to say that you solve the problem. If you don't really understand either what caused the problem nor neither what caused it. Nor what fixed it when we talked about that in terms of like expertise. Just because there's a difference between going the distinction lists just because it stopped being broken does not leave you in a position to qualify saying you fixed it So given that. I don't know what caused this problem. It's difficult to know what fixes it currently temporarily. But my hugh all my hugh stuff just like falls out of home kit. Sometimes it just goes away from home kit and i thought brilliantly figured it out the other day but i think i might have been wrong if anybody has actually. Don't i can google this. I i have google and nothing's worked so far it's not it's something else but but you know you. Can you imagine what happens. The i would say the vast majority of stuff on home kit at my house is houston. It's something like twenty seven bulbs we've got like six taps. Which is we've got five. I think hugh sensors let's just say we've got a lot of houston so when something happens and hugh gets confused or home kid. Keith gets confused. It causes a lot of havoc and boy. Do i ever hear about it like you know. My daughter just wants to go to bed like a person but she can't turn lights off because guess what the taps which stopped working. Everything fell off so everything. That's not hugh is still in home kit and still in the right room. So what do i do like a sucker. I go over to hugh essay hugh. How's it going bud. And then i go into settings and drill down and i drill down and get to the thing that says there's a button you can push that will sink your current hugh stuff and your current hugh setup and what i will just call the meta data as in. This light is in this room. It'll push all of that over to home kit. Which seems cool. But there's a bunch of problems with that one problem with. That is every time you do that again. A couple of things happen one. Is that first of all everything you just added to home kit. Pardon me reacted to home kit. For perhaps the six hundred ninth time. This week is now marked as a favourite everything yay and ask you. What was the last time you tried to do. More than five things in sitting in home. Kit is just welcome to click. Town clicking click. Click right click. Click click click. There's no like select all and do this to all of these and it's incredibly frustrating also tops which is so anyway. I don't know why that's happening. It's driving me nuts. I thought i figured it out. I thought it was that. Because i have to apple. Tv's that was running the beta and one. That's running production. I realized that the home kit hub nece existed on both apple's tv Do you know what i mean. Look if you go into settings and go to airplane home kit you'll get into that one area where it's like okay. They're your house. Connected office connected. Well guess what house was connected on. Both apple's tv. And i figure even the ones usually just unplugged. Because i don't want problems like this to happen. I thought that was it. I thought it was really smart and fixed it now. I'm not so sure that that's what fixed it and the other one was that. I think i finally figured out why. I may have figured out why i go to home kit at my house and things at the office First of all they're desperately close to each other. Which seems understandable. But i think what was causing that was on the apple. Tv guess what yes. Office hub was also connected by that apple. Tv which is totally unnecessary. I thought i fixed it. And i hadn't fixed it in trying to get into this stuff over time. I've discovered that there several available utilities for dealing with hugh stuff because unlike home. Kit hugh has a pretty open. It's a relatively open environment. From what i can tell like you know you can. You can do lots of stuff and see lots of stuff about your hughes setup using apps in ways that you can do that with things like Home plus i mean god kit would be useless to me without home plus and home dash in all these things but so i just wanted to highlight one that i found a few are. Are you in the family. You're thinking about being. I've decided on. Yeah i haven't gotten some point one hundred percent that's seems and i'm gonna get the one with the little hub thing and yeah that's that's my decision to cool cool. Okay good point this out. Because i thought this was really helpful. I mean in some ways. I feel this is analogous to home. Plus i've probably talked about home plus enough. But if you've got home kit stuff even if you're happy with it which you're probably not good check out an iowa. South called home. Plus i mentioned before put notes home plus basically gives you insight and functionality with home kit that's just non existent mostly in home kit One of the major things that does is it exposes. How do you put this. It exposes as many attributes as possible about your devices Stuff you don't see in home kit and you can then automate against those so you know if you can do stuff like it makes it so like automations right now in hong kong. It's fine but it's a really blind instrument you can. There's not that many things that you can key off of. I guess you can do more with shortcuts home plus in the home kit world. Just go check it out. It's really really great. Something analogous i feel like is an app. I discovered the other day called. I connect hugh which is a terrible name. And it's not a very pretty app boop ever do some cool stuff back to this whole. You know michigan us for some reason. I'm very yiddish today. the michigan with dealing like with tap switches when the tax which is go down. Everybody's unhappy as like amazon goes down. No one's happy. It's the same thing he was all your icons now now the things if you just something got a little messed up. There's an annoying way to fix it like it's got a little messed up. There's a dance that you have to do. The same goes for like if you accidentally press a button to long tap. switch it disconnected from the system. Because it thinks you're trying to do a reset but conversely if you want to reconnect a mislaid tap switch. It'll tell you okay. Do along press on this number for ten seconds. Press it again and then that's sometimes fixes it but the thing you can do in hugh which is the the the penultimate to the nuclear option. Which is it isn't that you just completely start over and re everything separately. Which i really don't want to do and i don't think would help. But you can do some call to clean up and cleanup is less innocuous than it sounds a cleanup basically clears out pretty much everything in your stuff except for the existence of your devices mostly and what room there in right so it remembers this light bulbs in the bathroom. Would it doesn't do though is retained the settings all you wipe all your switches and have to start over. Now atop switch is a powerful taps. Which is the transformative hardware device in the smart home for me anyway. As far as i'm concerned we went from having a jokey rich man's hobby of being able to talk to a lamp to having a way for me to do a lot of stuff in the background. No one needs to know about with smart homes but still have not simply the wonderful. Simplicity light switch but to have extra functionality because taps which is the round dingus. You stick to your wall or wherever and it's got four buttons on it. It's got a giant button but number one is usually for off on and then three buttons that you can do stuff with usually it saying when i clicked this button set. This scene is the most common one. And because it's it's hugh and it's smart you can even have. You can do a certain amount of limited stuff having to do with time of day and things like that dance real hassle to reset six of those. It's a huge pain in the butt. And i found this app that unintentionally realize does this thing that i wanted a lot more. I connect hugh has a bunch of hugh related stuff in it and it also has this kind of cool wizard functionality. So it i mean. I think the people who make understand the for most people most variety people are going to get a taps which stick it in a room. And what are they gonna do. Well they're going to control that room. Mostly replace stick one in my kids room on the wall under her regular light switch. That's gonna control. The room called emma. Mostly now there's within certain constraints you can do stuff with up to three rooms on top switch button etc etc. But it's it's not crazy to think you know here's the thing most people are gonna want so it's so neat you going to okay. This taps which is currently quote unquote disconnected. Run the wizard okay. hi i'm the wizard. What do you. What room do you want to deal with here. I want to deal with the room. Called emma cool. Set it up for you. The number one button is now off and this is not my setup. But i think it's a pretty good smart guess i mean i like the fairly stock idea of like bright dimmed off like the basic ones but this one is pretty cool. You run the wizard on the switch in a room and it says okay. Well you're good to go like this is now the off button. This one turns stuff on this one goes up or down in brightness so basically says i bet i bet you wanna dimmer and anyway that saved me so much time. It's got lots more really cool stuff in it and like a like a handful of these apps that people have made. I went ahead and paid for a year of the full features the pro features of this. You know i'm still. This is not solved my problem because i still don't really understand what my problem is. If you know what my problem is. Please don't write me. How are you going out there right. Well i'm just got made me sir. So i can. I connect hugh who now the cova can. We stopped doing that thing where we make a heart with our hands. I don't like that dan. I don't like when people make heart with their hands are those things Related in some way the covert and people made hearts with their hands on instagram for a long time because the broken inside but but then it became this thing. Where like oh. We're going to bang on pots at seven o'clock because we love nurse and then you get slow motion America's healing together. We're ready for you. Piano music enemies again. And then and then and then you show slow motion you show show somebody wearing lots of p. And they make harwood their hands. Dan i don't like the heart with the hands and i really think it needs to stop. There may have to be a purge at some point like in the movie. I don't know i. I don't know what it's gonna take. I don't wanna have to often nurse knoll but you people need to stop making with your hands and get off instagram. It's not making a happy. Also final thing You mentioned music and that made me think of something Remember i said dan. How learning facts. And they're still good. I live just gonna thing. I didn't know that existed. Len that i would like it. There's a really good documentary on netflix. That to me anyway was very surprising and enjoyable. It's called if i leave here tomorrow. A film about leonard scattered. Now if you're like me. You're going to hear that and go really a documentary about leonard skinner in this economy in these shoes right. But it's really good even if you leonard skinner to enjoy the but it's kinda cool a kind of cool. I did not know that. They're from there from florida but sewer we. Let's let's let's let's stop making hand hearts and get it forgiving nature anyway. If you want a good thing to just go. Check out. I i was. I really enjoyed it if i leave here tomorrow. A film butler skinner. I think it's in show notes. Did it right. And and that's the name of that tune. take it right. no. I did not go sometimes. Dance your bookmark. Late does not like me.

Pucca headline from the daily beast should of my google news. Mom and daughter killed adult film actress with backyard. But implants collapse wait. They used the butt implants to kill island really. This is the kind of thing that makes me crazy. I'm looking at you washington post. This is not clear writing. It's certainly read the mom and daughter. I'm the is one piece of punctuation in this. And that's gonna be when i say the word colon. Okay ready mom and daughter killed adult film actress with buck backyard but implants colon cops. Okay when i hear that. I hear that the cops are reporting this. The cops are the ones doing the report and just doing self defense and a tackle him with the but implant implants were used to commit this crime That's my take on this. Is that right. Well you shouldn't have to wonder dan. This is why we have writing classes in college. So there's there's this is not nam. You know a mama. Here's the here's the lead a mom and daughter who allegedly posed as plastic. Sir come on daily beast really guys. I'm paying for this. A mom and daughter who allegedly posted a mom and daughter who allegedly posed as plastic surgery. Pros have been charged with murder after an aspiring adult film actresses illegal but augmentation surgery turned deadly. I mean i can understand because right now it's very trendy to have a big but and so it would make sense that adult star would want that and maybe she's a professional professional reasons. Was it literally in the backyard. Oh you send them in the backyard. Oh i see what you're saying you're saying it would be like saying you know. Put the implants in the dumpster. Yes and plants and the dumpster. I know i know it's happened to the good music. Oh someone just introduced me to a band. But i forgot the name or the nice.

Press too easy. But it's not very clever and i don't like when people do it to me. You wanna make fun of someone because of their failures. Not because of their things that they yeah. I mean for their weaknesses in general. Yeah i mean anything that makes them vulnerable attack tack attack attack attack. Definitely definitely makes me better. I'm like i'm gonna hornet.

Weird weird to delivery guys put stuff in the hell. No way. I the reason i would say. No because what if there's a security alarm on because we have an alarm at our house in any perimeter window door if any of them are are are opened. And it'll go and i would assume delivery to make that happen. It's not so it wasn't a husband or kids that nobody knows how the box got there. No buddy knows. And i'm like did somebody else swing by the house and they saw this big package on the porch that i'll be nice and bring it in and then it's just weird that part. Where are you sure you didn't do it and you don't remember more likely. I think it's a huge box. And i came home and it was just in my entry way and i've asked everybody. Nobody knows so. My assumption was the delivery guy was like this is a really big box. Let me give the front door nudge. And it was open so they just set it right inside and carried on. We'll post this on our social media. See if this happens with delivery. Has it ever happened where you've come home at a packages inside. You don't know how it got there or we should update to about your house and your neighborhood. Is that car that was parked in your neighborhood that everybody wanted to go. Yeah it is now is gone. It got is not a good update because she did not always there watching it not filming it so i don't know if it got towed or someone came in moved it that's my hope. My hope is that someone came moved. It what are you thinking selves. They probably towed it. You'd think so somebody Maybe the tow truck guy saw the box on your porch before he told the car and then toews the car. Hey i was thankful is big bucks or having a good day. We're glad to be back today. It is time to open up the mailbox off. Bobby bobby. I'm a healthcare worker and about a month and a kobe. I started drinking a lot more at four to five drinks a night which was a lot than my usual two drinks a week. In june of last year. I decided to quit drinking a gave up all alcohol. I've been alcohol-free since june of twenty twenty assist. I had dinner the other night and she started an argument with me about why i don't drink anymore. I got upset i left. I have numerous reasons not to drink. But i don't feel like i have to justify my actions or reasons to her. How do you handle people especially ones that you care about pressuring you to drink. Thanks signed russell. Thanks for the email. I can tell for new listeners. I don't drink. But i've never had a drink of alcohol because of the history of alcoholism and drug addiction in my family. I also don't think it's wrong to drink. So i'm also not the guy who was like don't drink. I also am great institutions. Everybody else's drinking. So i'm not coming from a place of morally. I feel stronger and better than you. I just don't drink. 'cause i know it ain't good for me russell. Here's how you handle people you don't you don't own explanation to anybody if you don't want to drink you don't have to drink their things. You can do to avoid weird conflict. Like i will go out because i don't want to be questioned about it and if we're somewhere and i don't know a lot of the people i'll have made me. I used to call virgin drink. But i realized that's old school now. They look at you weird if you go. Hey can i get a virgin. So and so they're like. I don't wanna get canceled because at a bar. Gaza virgin so now. It's a mock tell but you can go. Hey can i get a mantell version of this just to at the bar and walk back with it and just drink and maybe no questions asked or you can just tell your sister. I don't feel going a drink as it. And also why she busting your chops about. That part's wherever. I chose not to really involve myself in that part of the family dynamic. You owe nothing to anyone good for you for going. Hey i'm cutting it because they don't feel like i was in a healthy place and if you ever decide you want have a drinker so and you can handle it good for you but but don't feel like you owe an explanation to anybody at anytime about anything that is affecting your mental wellbeing physical wellbeing. So that's all. I have to say anything. No i mean. I'm proud of them for you. Set a boundary for yourself and sometimes who the people that are affected by the boundaries. The most are those around you that maybe don't like it. So that's the problem with your sister and you love getting hammered with them or what. I mean just taiwan on to go to town every wednesdays you mrs or drinking buddy and so unfortunately that might be another boundary. You have to set by not hanging out with her as much. If she's going to pressure you for something clear parts just weird this you get mad but here on this. You don't know anybody anything about anything if when it comes to your physical and mental well-being the end drinking or not doesn't no matter what it is. Thanks have a good day. close it up.

I waiting for lunchbox to come in and be like i am. That was just eight. Seven seven seventy seven bobby to call us live or to call us after the show to talk on the bobby bones show now. John morgan of morgan morgan to make us smarter about law. Jon morgan howard things in nash. Vegas you know what they're doing. Pretty good where. What part of the world is the. Well travel jon morgan. And today today. I am in new hampshire looking out at the lake and waiting for the toby. Keith concert this weekend after this is a this is a country state up here. This is a country world. That's how i like. Willie nelson next weekend and i bet you backstage passes to tell this stuff. Don't you probably for willie with him in maui and i'm sure that you have a haze about that game i had a hayes about that game And it was the last time i was there. Paul som- actually came and played and But yeah there was there. We we listened to willie wrote whatever the willie road serious music and we have sandwiches and other refreshments the refreshments. I think we need no okay. Listen we love when you come on because you shed light on situations that we just don't know the answer to for example. Amy got in iraq and a guy tried to pay her in cash on the spot. What do you do if you get into a wreck. And they don't have insurance but they want to give you cash right there. Well cat cash without a release is just cash gone. But i wouldn't take it what i would tell you is if they don't have insurance. Maybe you do. And you have. What's called uninsured or underinsured motors coverage but usually the people are trying to pay for cash. They have bigger problems. No insurance like no driver's license like warrant for their arrest like escapee from prison. So it's usually not about insurance. It's usually about something else and you did not take the cash. Yeah i almost dead. Just because i didn't want to take anything. I just felt so bad because he was just so insistent that we not call the police. And i of course like was feeling really bad for him even though the wreck was totally his fault. But yeah i didn't take it. But he's offering me two hundred dollars. And i got the damage assassin. It's a five thousand dollar thing to fix and yeah and having to go through my insurance to do it. He might have insurance. You know. don't don't let that. Don't let the two hundred dollars because a lot of people are thinking. Hey i'd rather pay two hundred dollars and not having my rates go up. A lot of people. Try to make a business decision at the scene of the accident. another situation. that happened here. Lunchbox fox on our show dented. A car with a shopping cart as he was trying to squeeze between two cars in a parking lot is he legally responsible to pay for that damage yes he is and most likely his homeowner's insurance will cover that claim homeowners though it was a basket from a grocery store how does homeowners cover. That whole motors cover slander. So you guys when you all are slandering people and i understand you all do quite a bit of slander. Down there but When you slander someone. Many times your homeowners will cover your the cost of defense and your claim for slander. How did you all the fine print and those homeowners policy. How did you feel whenever the people sued subway for not having enough tuna tuna sandwich and there's a class action lawsuit. Did you feel like that was warranted. It could be. I mean you know. There's a lot of of bs class actions out there but on the other hand well first of all it to me. That's i don't know about that. You have to believe that adds slander. Jon morgan that slander coverage well look slander. There is one thing but Truth is an absolute defense to slander. But no seriously the it. It probably is a climb. Because are you really getting tuna fish. Are you really getting enough tuna fish. What does it say on the side. We trust what it says on the side of the package but i would say by and large. There's a lot of class actions. That's just really more for the lawyers than for the consumers. Jon morgan of morgan and morgan. If i go to a restaurant. And i burn the top of my mouth on a really hot piece of pizza. Do i have a case. Probably not the famous mcdonald's case now remember that's what we all. We all think about the famous. Mcdonald's case where the woman got the hot coffee what you got to remember that case is mcdonald's was heating that coffee up at like one hundred forty degrees. It was steaming hot. The reason they did it was because by the time people got the back to the office. The coffee was coldly kep eating it up hotter and hotter and hotter and hotter. They had had many cases like that before but they never turn the heat down the coffee. If you google that case and look at the women's burns you will not believe what happened to her legs and so that verdict came after many many bites of the apple. Where mcdonald didn't change their conduct and the verdict was reduced substantially but if a pizza place over and over and over was cooking their pizzas so hot that the cheese was burning off the flesh on the roof of your mouth and they never change conduct. Then you might have a case but not a one off you know. it's always at least in my lifetime. I've been told if there's an accident person who rear ends the person is at fault. is that true. It's always the person's fault who does rear ending. No because there's there's a big defense out there called sudden stop and listen up. How many of us have had people suddenly stop in front of us. So you've got people who are not paying attention ahead of you suddenly. Stop all of a sudden. You're caught off guard and you don't have time to react. So what was the rule. What was the rule in driver's ed. We're supposed to be one car linked behind per ten miles an hour hour. Whatever so. i got a driver's ed park high school. So sudden stop won't affect you if you're not if you follow that rule. This is not injury related. But if i were to win the lottery what the first step you recommend for me to do legally if you are you married. Okay i was gonna suggest you go to vegas to the bunny ranch. But i'll crash that The first thing i would do is i would go around my family and give them make them as whole as i possibly could if they had debt in their debt if they had financial troubles out in their troubles and then i'd go to go to europe on vacation but legally if i win millions of dollars. Should i call an attorney to say. Hey watch over this or do i just run wild and free like you're saying i wouldn't run wild and free. I'd i wouldn't call a lawyer. Because i don't know what a lawyer i mean. What is the you're to go help you pick up the check. But i i'd be happy to represent you and i'll only take twenty five percents. I do ause we're friends. Of course i you. All will always have the morgan and morgan friends and family discount. So if you or anybody on at the station wins the lottery. I'll do it for twenty five percent. Maybe less mortgage mortgage baby less. They're offering one hundred thousand dollars in a contest for a new jingle. They're looking for a catchy tune.

It is we've had you cannot imagine what a hundred thousand dollars we'll do in america. We have got so many entries and i'll tell you. Some of them are really really very good but some of them. It's hard to understand what i loved about that. Jingle was you could understand it you could understand all the words. It was catchy. And memorable over time.

Doing as an everyday job was pretty good. You know it was really tough to drive a truck. But i think i liked the solitude of it. You just drive and you're by yourself. You're listening to music or podcasts. And the truck driving. The learning part for me was tough. But i think our lie driving a big rig across the country as long as you knew how to do it. I would feel nervous the whole time. I think it's like anything else when you started doing. This radio show. You were super nervous. I think it's like anything else. Yeah the truck truck driving. Most of those jobs were just tough. Underwater stuff was tough to hanging off. Grand canyon maybe the crushing cars. That's cool.

It's been i guess a month and a half. Since i've seen you congratulations again. Thanks man so what happened was just for those at home. That are playing the home version of this game. Is that my wife loves josh grayson. When she was two. She said she was going to. Create a new highwaymen. She put josh grayson and she would always sing songs. And once i put on instagram caitlyn singing one of songs and he replied back and i said that'd be really cool to have josh grayson surprise her so it's kind of hard to talk we emailed and we finally tracked you down and josh showed up at our rehearsal dinner and played and they're like oh yeah so you know there was so much going on and i think but you know publicly like you'd have to do that. We didn't pay you you know. I was so grateful that you would show up and do that for us because it was really special her again on a public stage here. I really appreciate that no problem. I appreciate y'all thinking of me. And i'm glad i could help out comes out he plays. We're all singing. Along is a good moment. great. So i was thinking about you because you were marine. Got into music. And i think craig morgan was in the service before he got into music when you were in the marines. Were you playing music. Actually i was here and there and You know it's it's it's kind of like an unspoken thing really. You don't know how the guys are going to take it when you're in the barracks or anything else like that. But i guess in boot camp kinda started when things are kind of really hard and people kind of home and stuff like that i was. They kind of caught me sing and just to kind of call myself down and the next thing you know i would be asked to sing at the end of the night where. Everyone's lining their rack trying to get to sleep and calm down. And so that's what. I would do pretty much the rest of boot camp. And it just kind of snowballed into their as far as intertwined with the military. Did they get you a guitar or did you just sing acappella. John appel the whole time. I grew up. I grew about outside of detroit. So i learned how to sing off motown music. R&b oldies music. And then i got into country music at a at a very young age and up there in michigan you know in the mid nineties before really kinda gov. It was kind of a different thing but so i would sing. The boys demand stuff and things like that in the barracks until it kind of transition and more people started telling me they wanted some countries stuff. So did you get like a singing nickname like all right singing boy johnny singer. Did you have like a singing nickname in the military. Not in the military to be honest with you but one of things that Former label used to do to kind of me because they know that I don't like like attention like like immediate attention like that in public is every time he used to go somewhere radio stuff to say the singing marine and used open the doors and like just say that really really loud so i guess that probably the only nickname attached to that as a singing marine. They wouldn't call you that while you're in the marines because then you're exactly exactly. Yeah there you go. I do want to talk about you new single in a second. But if you wouldn't mind and i know we asked you to do this at the at the rehearsal would you give us a verse chorus of nothing to lose. Yeah it's just amitai come on. I can't keep up just trying to sing along with it because it's so fast it is just like about about about about times where sometimes you get off. Track are making stuff making. It sounds pretty much. I usually do the song usually do this song at the end of the show because everyone's drunk by the time they get there so they don't realize if i've messed up any of the words or not but you know that's the one song that surprisingly i have not messed up any of the words. Well i'll be dan because my grandma here he is josh grayson gives us a version. Of course here we go. This is nothing to lose town downtown. Breakdowns down jami tabs. He was pretty lacking go on five stat. Downtown's who sticky you know rap new. Go in jones and drool impeding good. It'd be would only. She's gabby ronin allowed. Good bring one batman. She's up tax down any. I've gotten there is. It'd be like what are do that much slower like. Could you slow way down and do it as a ballot. Go through ten downtown brig. Tom sumer town. Tom any yeah looking periodic. Go off out of san downtown. She used around was tuned. Ian going seagoing jones and feeling slow so you mentioned and i mentioned to working on new music. You have this new single. I'm gonna play Some love like right now that he is crazy back Curious because you wrote the song when you go into the room with these other guys this idea when it was brought in by you or are these guys like how does this come up in the room and had you had to settle on the song. Well it was one as is came in. We started riding. Ever written with parker. Casey or or greg before and so came in the room. And it's kind of intimidating. You know getting getting the you'd never know what somebody's gonna thank you and it's song rings extra really intimidating because you know you always don't want to throw out something that everybody looks at you like okay. That's you know we're not gonna go with that. So but they were really cool and we sat down and started from some core progressions. I sang a little bit. They sang a little bit. And we kind of messed the melodies and started writing the lyrics and then I got what you never want happened in in in a songwriting Situation i i was in the middle of a lot of things going on in my time in life and i had a really important phone call. That just kept blowing up my phone. I walked out. And i literally was maybe gone for like five ten minutes at most that i came back like. Hey we got the course. Then i was like holy crap. Glad i got glad i got some parts in as far as the as far as the verse in the melody and stuff like that but no they were a great bunch of of writers and and we did a real quick You call living room demo and took off from there so and right now you guys can stream love like it's josh's new single can you because you're good live and i know we just heard the detract there but i think our listeners like to hear someone play their song.

Seventy five years old. He says you know he was giving up on getting that new kid need that he just wasn't getting then he got a call. It said hey. We had a donor come forward. The donor wanted to remain anonymous. But he was like let me know who they are. He begged them. That's when a message from co worker of seven years whose an associate professor cornell his name is adam settling one out of them wanted to donate his kidney but first he wasn't allowed because he wasn't healthy enough so we spent two years as this guy was going through the five years of dialysis improving his health in order to donate a kidney.

You had a great time nobody. Let's do the news. Every bobby's stories got three good ones today. The first one is a man was trying to smuggle three hundred and fifty pounds of meat over the texas border. Us border authorities confiscated the meat from a man attempting to smuggle the goods over the border. They discovered the haul around six. Am the guy. Twenty was carrying three hundred twenty pounds of pork baloney thirty pounds of turkey. Ham in the back seat of twenty twelve honda. Odyssey would be a truck or something. Yeah it'd be hidden on the autism basically just sitting in the back seat belt over a border agent ordered a secondary inspection due to the drivers negative declaration of carrying foods because he can see the meat in the back seat. Got new food. Eddie as someone who grew up at the border and you had across the border. A bunch yes. What's the deal with crossing the border with stuff. Do most people just get through. Because they don't get checked. Everybody gets to go to mexico. No problem i mean they don't care what you take in their america doesn't care what you're taking mexico coming back into america from mexico it's high security and it does start with a question. Do on clear anything. i citizens. Yes great are you bringing anything from mexico. Then you have to tell them what you have if you don't and they suspect something they're like going to stall number four please and they just check your entire vehicle sometimes if you play it so cool. Do they not suspect anything you do. Sneak stuff in sometimes what we would do kids because we weren't supposed to be going over there as like high school kids. We were put on like a nice easy listening music. And we're good kids. You play michael bolton that way. They're just like these guys are cool there no problems but what were you smuggling back. Nothing just weird just drinking over. There were no. We didn't want to deal what you wanna do. You ever smuggled food. It's nerve wracking smuggling to haiti. I've taken like lemons. You have to declare it. And i don't and they ask me. Do you have anything. But i really didn't want them to take my lemons so like no. I'm good and i start sweating. 'cause i'm like what if they bust me for my lemons because it's against the law that i made a amigos keyser cell phone into a prison. No okay yeah next story. If you go over to cameo you'll see all these people that are like cut video for ya and and i'll say your friends name and it'll cost you this much money. They have now released the top five most popular tv stars for cameo now. This is most videos done and has not most money made because some of the videos pretty cheap william hung from american idol. A number five. How he she bangs she bangs. Fun fact eddie nine. I met ever at a william hung event. That's right we brought him in for the radio station and eddie was doing news. They're crazy. I was there to interview william hong. But he wasn't available so i interviewed bobby. Excess number. Four larry thomas who is the nazi on seinfeld funny eighty bucks number three now. This guy makes more money than the rest because he charges so much. But in number of videos made brian. Baumgartner kevin malone from the office one josh sussman from glee and wizards of waverly place. I don't morgan. Who josh sussman is. Yeah no for sure i do. I'm looking at a picture of him. He kind of has bob ross hair. Yeah he was really number one. Ed big ed brown from ninety day fiance. Okay i've never heard of him sixty nine dollars now. Of course people love that ninety day. Fiance show so much. So where i go mentioned should i even get into. What do they do. I don't there unless someone watches it. I don't want to speak wrongly on it. But isn't it where they get someone from another country that comes in and they have ninety days. You have to watch fiancee of all the shows. We watch a lot of garbage but definitely not that one mike. What's the premise of ninety day. Fiancee if you'll look that up for me because i think it's long distance. Relationships have challenges or difficult to overcome but if considered the distance traveled halfway around the world and a couple of had ninety days to decide whether the courtship should conclude with marriage. That's the situation. So that's what. I heard that come other countries and you can't just get married someone a green card or citizenship prison. Not one of us has watched that. I know and it's a massive show and it also shows you regardless how massive it is everything is still cut into such small sections now finally in the news and i only bring this up because we talked about it a long time ago but lose evert is a rapper who had a jewel place in his forehead. Now here's some music. He had a twenty four million dollar rock embedded in his forehead. He saved for years. And it's a pink gemstone twenty four million dollars embedded into his forehead. I mean why would he do that. We talked about it on the show. But it's still. I'm like people chop your head off. Well what happened was. He jumped into the crowd at a at a festival. Try to get it. So losing vert says the pink diamond implanted in his forehead got dislodged when he jumped into around at rolling allowed. He said that his idea wasn't foolproof. Because he did a stage dive and the fans ripped it right out of his forehead taught the good news. He didn't suffer any serious facial damage and has a barbell piercing in its place and yes he does have the diamondback reimplanted now but it is a rock right up in between his. Is that superhero. Would you have to cut out some bone. Because it's not like unless you're taping it right you have to put it in they were just pearson some ways till secure it and then you clip it into the piercing your thinking on affordable level. You're in two thousand twenty five right now. And i'm like eight hundred eighty seven. Mike which do you think it is. Do you think they clipped it. Like amy said or do they cut some bone if you had to guess just fell out. But but how's it security in like how does it even stay there gorilla glue. Yeah someone that sometimes when those late night infomercials. They're like look. We've strapped his baby to the top of the ledger with ten story building. Now will the gorilla glue. Hold all come on the baby. Just dangles safely. It looks believable. Anyway it's a twenty four million dollars stone in his head it came out. How do they get that. Who gave it back. No chance their fans i mean. Okay if you're a fan. I just don't i. Don't jump into this crowd with a diamond on my like that much less my head. All right. that's the news bobby's stories.

Yes i want to right now like he needs to stop. I'm so nervous. I'm worried that the crowd gonna cheer for her. But it's a pity cheer because it's her birthday and that's what i'm worried about right now. What abby one out on stage. She seemed very comfortable right. Eddie oh yeah very nailed it in a hersal where she was right on the opposite ray. We're like wow to go and so same time like six songs into the set in kansas. On sunday our band starts playing. We're playing heads. Carolina tells california. Then it'd be comes out and here. She is in her hometown on her birthday. It's about a minute of heads. Carolina tails california. Johnny do so fine so fine. You sound great. You sound great thank you. What can you say about that. I felt like in the middle of got a little in the middle. Now he's taken alive for a little bit there but it was a great song because then the crowd sings with you so even if you do sound a little pitchy or you don't. You're not as good as the runs. They don't notice because they're seeing with you. So was a great song choice now. She sounded good to ask. Ray and abby they were just up there living there s live and she tried to run all stage which was finishing her part of the songs. Like no stay out here and let the crowd like cheer for you. Like feel the love and the crowd and we started crying tom. My name is also. Was it a coma for you Yes it was amazing. It was like the adrenaline. I was bouncing off. I was literally bouncing off the stage. Like crazy i was like jumping up and down. It was so fun. Or you're reconsidering your career path singer. Bobby see what you are. Dreams bobby. She's old enough to be honest with her that she shouldn't chase her dreams. Like you know how those parents take their kids to try out for american idol. It's like you know they're not good enough but you still take them. Just tell her. Hey it was a good job. But don't chase her dream. Well i thought you did a great job help. Your birthday was awesome. And i think if you wanna work this show and you do indeed produce chuck's podcast and you still want to go sing a little bit. Don't let anybody tell you you ain't good. I hope you do what you wanna do. Whatever fills you up okay. great job. Great job abby your louisiana woman and nine one. One dispatcher is currently wanted by authorities in new orleans after allegedly filming several emergency calls and then hang up on people in need of assistance man. I call she's twenty five. She stands accused of malfeasance in office. And interfering with an emergency communication for allegedly disconnecting calls without gathering the requisite information. But the weird thing is why is she on the run. Yeah for that. Go to prison for this. I would think it'd be a prison charge except for now that you're on the run now it's going to be enough of it could be it then. Why is she hanging up on people. Like i'm just gonna go or my mind spirals if you know the person that's doing the wrong to the person that's calling. That would be a reason. Do that's next level thinking. And that's wow i mean. Is that large worn out for her arrest on both charges. I'm sure it's an overwhelming job. So maybe sometimes overwhelmed so she just overwhelmed by this job john. Exactly i think that now. We know she can't do this job. What was she charged with mount. If that's exactly malfeasance now googling malfeasance. Because i want to know why that's why she will go to jail or what. I don't know what what is. What is your search you Malfeasance the willful inappropriate action or intentional incorrect action or advice. And you're you're you're in you could injure a party. I mean the thing is people's lives are in danger and they're at risk if they're calling nine one one potentially in your hanging up on them like you you could be the reason someone lives or dies.

How to Shop on a Small Budget with Alison Lumbatis

"You've got to clean your closet now and you have to know what you have to know what you need. Because most of us only wear twenty percent of what's At any given time heights and i think that's probably true if you go back to the same pieces like what i love. Hey everyone welcome to episode of the rachel. Cruze show podcast. I'm so glad that you're here all right this episode. We're going to talk about all things shopping and giving yourself permission to spend but at the right time so many people get far down in the baby steps and that means you can actually enjoy your money. You can spend it. And that is not a bad thing. So i'll be interviewing alison laddis. Who is an author and fashion guru on how to dress for less and also gonna take a question from stephanie. Who's on baby. Step seven as she wants to know how she can enjoy spending again but first let's talk about the store that we all know and love targets and here are twenty ways to save at target. Take a listen all right. Today's episode we're going to dive into. Gosh people may say heaven on earth. That's how i would describe it targets. oh yeah so. We're going to break down twenty ways to save money at targets. You're welcome all right first up. Pick your day. So here's what's interesting target. Markdown certain departments on specific. Days for clearance. So you need to know the schedule ahead of time to know where to get. The best deals so the target schedule includes will start with monday ready electronics accessories kids clothing absolutely books. Thank you baby stuff and stationary. So it's monday. Be thinking about those things. Because that's when they mark it. Down for clarence tuesday domestic goods women's clothing. I'll take that pet stuff food items and then you move onto wednesday. Which is men's clothing health and beauty diapers lawn and garden and furniture and then thursday house. Wear lingerie shoes toys. Sporting goods decor- and luggage. And then we'll top it off with friday ready. Are you ready. Auto cosmetics hardware and jewelry and fascinating each day. You gotta know. If you're like. I really want that sweater. Just wait till the dates down and you know it's amazing not schedule all right number to check for price adjustments so if an item you bought goes on sale within fourteen days at the purchase. All you have to do is bring back your receipt and target will adjust the price for you. This is sharon ramsey special. Growing up. you guys. She saved every receipt every receipts so this was like an kastner not days anyone not anyone the southern department store and remember that. Oh man she those receipts all their seats. If we saw on saturday she has a receipt. she goes here and they gave her cash. It was crazy. So that's what happens. You guys some exclusions may apply but make sure you read targets policy before you request the price adjustment but you guys just get cash back. It's crazy number. Three price match so target will do low price match with some online and local retailers including amazon number four. No the clearance codes so clearance items are some of the best deals targets and they get cheaper and cheaper as time goes on so i don't ski mark down all the way to seventy percent off and if you're on the hunt for clearance they should mark down a red or yellow sticker so make sure you look in the top corner of tagging. You'll be able to see that color. And the price ends and point zero. Four four cents usually means will not get any cheaper number five shop for holidays early or late so obviously this applies to target and beyond but for specifically targets. Here's the holiday clear schedule. So the first day after a holiday nonfood items are marked down. Fifty percents in food and candy are marked down thirty percent. Four days after the holiday goes down even more so nonfood items are marked down. Seventy percent and food and candy are marked fifty percent off on the seventh day a week after the holiday food and candy hits seventy percent off number six check the dollar section. I mean this is the tricky one right european right and the target. And you're like whoa. What's this little al over here. It's like a dollar but then they sneak in like a five times even eight dollars. You gotta watch it okay. You gotta be careful but there is some really good stuff. There's a lot of crap in there but there's also some great stuff like thank you cards gift bags. Little kid toys all of that. So make sure you watch it because you can justify a dollar very easily just dr smith's one hundred dollars dollar section so make sure you watch that number seven stack coupons using the targets circle app. I love this app so much. This has great coupons and coupon codes. Remember george campbell was on when he taught us about all the money hacks. Yeah well this is the same thing so you can sort by discount and see what does count is best for you. Number eight used targets registries yet. So if you're engaged getting married maybe you're going to have a baby soon. All things registries can really help you save especially on big ticket. Items was beautiful is the things that don't come off. The registry target will give you fifteen percent off each item so you stack that fifteen percent deal with the five percent red card debit card and our credit card people together and then if you cartwheel discounts that they have on the app i mean. You can save so much money doing that. So thank you registries. Thank you number nine. Use your own bag and target will give you a five cent discount upon checkout probably won't change your life but hey you're saving money right never ten shop online okay with this. You need to know yourself. Some of you actually save money by shopping online. Because you're very disciplined and you know exactly what's going on and you have this like online conviction and your spirit and when you check out and it's above the budget and you're able to organize and you'll save so much money this way because i'm so in control some of your like that and that's wonderful others view not so much you actually end up spending more when you shop online. That's kind of me you guys. I can go crazy. I can't execute. this is good. This is good and sometimes a target things that are online are not always in the store. So i feel the need that kind of get it right so i do have to watch myself and okay. I can just browse mindlessly down here. You know just for entertainment and then i look up and i'm like oh there's so much my car i need to just sleep on it right so get online. Shopping can save you money because again. You're not just walking through the store mindlessly. Shopping the aisles. But you can easily spend more to so just make sure you watch. Aw number eleven. Use other money saving apps so we talked about honey. Remember when george was onto so this is a great one because it will show you in your browser any promo codes that apply to your purchase. Then you can do it on target dot com and look to see okay. Yeah you can get some discounts that way number twelve. You don't need to buy two of something in order to reap the benefits of the two four x deal so this is awesome so target will label something. Okay yeah you get two for x. Amount of dollars. But sometimes you don't have to to of that to get the lower price. I learned this grocery shopping to buy one get one free. You just buy one luxury. Market down like fifty percents off and target can be the same so just by sticking with one item. It's mark it down and you truly will save money and we're thirteen shop for toys after christmas. So target does semi annual toy sale in january and july. So you can strategically think ram tons of birthday parties. Were going too far. Kid's christmas for next year. Coming up we have friends are probably babies. Like be thinking about other stuff in life than you can go and buy a bunch of stuff that's discounted and you have it there so when you need present us get it out of your closet. It's brilliant number. Fourteen sign up for the target red card. The debit card is a debit card. A full blown debit card. You get five percent back on every purchase. Not amazing. I love mine. I mean i was so paranoid when i signed up for two years ago. I kept saying this is not a credit card right. This is not a credit card right. This is not credit card. Like how does it like. He was like no. It literally connects to your bank account like it takes money out like a debit card. Like yeah like a debit card is not a credit card saw credit card i was like i can't be credit card needs to be a debit card and it is. It's a debit card. That's what it is and it's amazing so you get five percent back and here's the best part when your entire shopping. You get five percent off at starbucks. That's in there to new. It's amazing now get you gotta be careful because you're thinking i'm saving money so then you could end up spending more money so got to watch that because remember cash will always be better than any plastic which brings me to number fifteen use cash so studies do show always been like this for decades. You guys when you spend with cash you spend less. Because what does it triggers your brain and the pain centers of your brain light up when you spend with cash probably for multiple reasons. I mean one visual you see a number two like there's an exchange that happens when you spend with cash you have to hand something over to get something back right like all. The stuff happens when you use cash so those of you that are early on in the budget process or maybe your baby steps like one through three use cash okay so this will always save you money at target and other places. It's amazing now if you can't use cash obviously a debit card is going to be your next best bet. And we're sixteen purchase gift cards with your red card and get the gift cards five percent off just as an example. If you're going on a disney vacation you can get disney gift cards at target for cheaper because you get that five percent savings and then you can book your trip with that gift card number. Seventeen at don't forget about returning items you don't use so you can return anything at target up to ninety days. Do not forget the. Yeah maybe you thought you were going to wear this thing or use this thing in kitchen and is just sitting there the price still on it from using it. Take it back. Get your money back number. Eighteen exchange use electron next for target. Gift cards okay. I didn't realize this but this is the thing so check online. I at target to make sure all this applies to you but you can actually ship in. Used fitbit's kendall's iphones all of this for an exchange for a target gift card which is just crazy so you may get a better deal on ebay or facebook marketplace. Do some research before you do it but if you look it up your item online and you're like yeah you get the quote and you like it. They're gonna send you a prepaid shipping label for free so you don't have to haul your stuff to the stories but in the mail and there goes and then you get a target gift card love. It never used discipline. Yes guys listen target. It will steal from you. It will take your money before you realize it so you really do. You gotta be disciplined your budget. You got to know what's going on and if you're going there for retail therapy because you're like oh i've seen it get away from the kids like listen no target because you're not spending so much money so short term happiness in that moment where you want some new makeup or i'm going to buy some new clothes or whatever yet it's gonna feel good in the moment but it's really not going to give you a long lasting peace. Okay so remember that. Don't go there for retail therapy ends at number twenty is advice from you guys. So the official. Rachel cruze community on facebook post. So much how you save money at target and so many other places probably love it because it just shows discipline like we were just talking about that okay. So for instance. Morgan was having a rough day and she just felt better buying the sweater and then she looked at our budget and she said she put the sweater back. Jon morgan amber put more stuff back on the shelf. And she kept in her carts because she was a baby. Step three which is fully funded emergency fund amber a love. The discipline jessica is watching spending. She only spent get this.

Ways to save target selfishly. I want to know so again. Let me know all about saving money guys. This is a big part of our financial journey to be wise with the money that we have today. We're gonna talk about. Let's say one of my love languages. Lows so i brought alison labatt's on and she is the founder of get your pretty on and her new book. The ultimate book of outfit formulas is out. So congratulations thank you. Thanks for being here okay. So we're chatting about close fashion because it's something that people they'll spend money on some people don't feel like they have a big budget to spend money on and so it's always this like hard give and take of our money and our closed you find that a lot of that tension with a lot of people absolutely and i think that a lot of it is us giving us permission to buy as moms especially just permission to take a little bit of the family budget. Yes and say this is reserved for me. And i'm gonna go ahead and get some clothes that make me feel amazing. Yes it is true because how you feel represents so much of your life. Right i mean. There's an element of that. But it's so true so people watching they say okay awesome. That's great but are failing budget is like we don't have a lot. What are some tips that people can work with and they go into their closets. Like what what can you say to help them. Get that formula that outfit formula write books about. How can they do that with. What's just in their closet now. I have a tricky miniature with you. But i i'm going to say that most of us actually have more functional war droops than we even realize. I mean i think that old adage i have a closet full clothes and nothing to wear right yes yes yes completely unpopular opinion. I'm going to just acknowledged that right now. But you've got to clean your closet. Al and you have to know what you have to know what you need because most of us only wear twenty percent of. What's in any given time. I'd say i think that's probably true. It as you go back to the same pieces because you're like this is what i love. Cavs agree and if you take everything else out then you know that decision fatigue of walking in there and seeing everything all at once is taken away you see you're twenty percent and then you can truly assess take an inventory and know what do i need what i need to fill it in my wardrobe and then you're armed with that list of things when you walk into the store. You're not overwhelmed. You're not gonna make those impulse buys but many of us don't even have to buy anything if you do this and you have that twenty percent you can look at those pieces and say are there any classic basic items and hear things that i can pair up in multiple ways things that i can wear over and over. And here's the trick so if you have a favorite pair of jeans which most of us knew yes. So we're going to start with anything are lower-half there's five variables of an alpha formula. Your bottoms your tops. Yes you're toppers. Which are going to be your jacket. The layer yes your shoes and accessories. Yes go. I recommend starting with your bottoms with your favorite pair of jeans and then start paying them up with multiple items in your closet. So you're going to pull out a top then an atop then add some shoes and then you can add the accessories if you want to now or you can wait till later but when you have that pairing take your phone. Snap a picture of it and then move onto the next pairing without same pants and keep doing this until you've exhausted options in your closet and what this is going to do is number one. It's gonna show you have multiple ways appearing level. You already have a number two. You're going to have all those pictures on your phone. You can pull it up in the morning. Walk in your closet and know exactly what you're wearing everyday fills like clueless middle school or whatever. She had her screener computer. And you're like okay. So i wanna go back to what you said the beginning so this is really important. So the minimalists. There's favorite guests that have on the show because that idea of just limiting that fatigue. You're putting extra energy into something in your life. That is unnecessary. You can actually remove things you feels like a weight is lifted off. And i'm guilty of this. I have probably two thing. I should have brought them. Just just to prove the point but i have two things in my house right now are probably eleven years old and the word tired. i've heard. Oh it's tired tired. But i remembered when i bought them and they were expensive town. I spent my it was like this like big deal. I'm like i can't let it go. I haven't worn it in years and years. So it's stuff like that for me that i know is there and i'm like just get rid of it. It's fine. why are you hanging onto it. Because when i walk in i can actually see okay. Here's what i actually like and put your energy towards those things versus the things that you're just trying to weed out definitely and i think a lot of us have emotional baggage around things in our closets. They either represent time in our lives where we a different memory or a different time or a different size or whatever and we keep all of that stuff in there but it's really not serving us in our everyday life and it's okay if you want to keep it just take out stash it somewhere else yet. You don't have to you know. Keep it in your closet. That's the point is just have those few pieces in there that you're wearing that's all you're wearing anyway. Let's be on absolutely true. it's so true. Okay so people that actually have a little bit of money to spend when it comes to close like okay. I'm going to go about this. But do it in a wise way sending that again. You're not just filling bunch of stuff. You will never wear where some tips for that like when you go shopping. What are some things. okay. I have the money like. How can i do this wisely. So i love to calculate a cost per where basis on everything that i buy. Okay and i'll give you an example this a few years back. I was buying a handbag every season. I'm like oh this cute purse because this color assists this new seasonal trend or whatever. I was doing that like four times a year and i would carry it for three months. Get sick of it and move on and so i sat down and i thought well if i invested a higher quality bag that i was going to carry over the course of say. Two years calculate out that cost per use basis on that bag. It was actually a better value than those seasonal bags that i wasn't really spending a whole lot of money on. I really love to do this exercise with so many things that i buy. Handbags are are great investment. Don't confuse name brands with quality because it's not always synonymous leather tot- that's gonna hold up for a long time. It doesn't necessarily have to be a name brand but just look for good quality outerwear as another place that you can absolutely spend money because these are things. Coats are going to wear season after season year after year. You're gonna get a lot of us out of those mukasa where basis another place that you're gonna wanna put your money. Shoes good shoes the language so yeah invested in good quality shoes. That are gonna hold up. That are gonna be comfortable stand. That has the time they're going to wear for probably a few years. Yes Knits are another good place to invest. Nobody likes itchy. scratchy sweater. likes that but Yeah a good quality net. Hold up really really well. And it's going to be a nice comfortable fabric to and i always put genes on this list but jeans aren't necessarily something you have to invest a lot of money and because dunham quality and cost are not always correlated with denim. You can find nice quality genes. That may not all that expensive. But the place you're gonna to invest is by multiple washes in that gene. If you find her jeans that fits you perfectly go ahead and buy all the washes in those jeans. You will thank yourself later. Yes because you know it fits great. You're like oh. I love it. Okay so those are great things to splurge on that you're like yes my investment pieces now. What are things like nope. don't splurge on it but if you have little cash it's fun just to buy that. You can change out kind of season to season hands down accessories accessories outfit you know and they really just refresher basics. You can buy some new seasonal trends accessories every single season. It's not going to break the bank and it's just a quick easy way that you can just add a little bit of something to your outfit. So that's a great area. Another one is the seasonal trends so the things that aren't gonna stay in style year after year season after season. Take a little bit of money and add a new color to your wardrobe avenue pattern or a new style. Something that may not have that longevity. But you're not gonna feel like you're wasting money because it's not going to be that expensive race. That's right that's right. Yeah there's certain stores that lend to that right. That are more inexpensive. They always super trendy and can go in. You know. I'm thinking about like your hmo or you know what. I mean like things like that. I'm not going to spend a ton on. But i can go and yet just spend a little bit and get something kind of fun but if it goes way next year is obvious no big deal exactly and sometimes those trends stay in style longer and if they do then. That's a good opportunity for you to upgrade the trend a few years back. I bought a pair of leopard flats and i was like. Oh leopards having a moment right now and leopard continued having so i wore out those glass and i invested in a better quality pair of leopard flats that have held up for the past. You know three to four years so it's okay to upgrade that trend later on if it's six around okay. That's soka back to the shoes right. Yes always issues. What are like. Just some do's and don'ts of close when you look at people and you're like oh don't do that yes keeping the layering i love. Someone like makes everything. Look that much really. Does the leader piece when you add that third item on so the third item is the completer piece. And i know if you live in a hot. Climate is a little bit hard to do that. Yes i live in texas. So i love when i can wear blazers in jackets and it just feels like i'm wearing a complete outfit but really i think that the biggest thing that women need to focus on is finding pieces that fit and flatter your body honestly. That is the key. It's the trick. It's a little bit difficult to figure out but once you look at your body's shape and then look at the pieces that are specifically going to fit in flatter your shape it just opens up this whole new world of possibility of everything. Okay so let's go through a couple of body shape so i'm thinking about it. Okay so if someone is like more of the pear-shaped what our ideal for that body type. I'm a pair. Yes yes so with pear shapes. Obviously we're gonna accentuate. We have narrow waist yes and typically. We have wider hips. So i try to you know. I wear highways jeans. Things are gonna hit at my natural waste. You're also going to once with pear-shaped because you're usually bigger on bottom and on top do something. That's going to balance out your proportions. So across the top horizontal stripes are always a good idea. Anything that's make your shoulders feel broader seem broader anything. That's going to draw up so think v necks. That are gonna dry up to the face statement necklaces. Also draw the up as you statement earrings. Yes so there's little tips and tricks to kind of like balance proportions. Visually where it's not where you're having to think too hard about it but just accentuating the right spots and drawing the i to the right areas. I love that okay. How about someone shorter and more just petites like my sister. My mom this is how they are built and in east. My sister's always like 'cause. I can't wear like certain genes right. They cut in a certain spot or like like it. Just looks you know. She's like i just never looked so good. I'm like give it a a good. I don't know but like what are some tips for shorter more people. It's always about elongating. If you're a petit you're going to want to do things like monochromatic tones wearing darker colors from your waist. Down the all the way through your shoes. If you're able to not wearing jeans cut you off too high on the legs so yes yes typically off limits. You're gonna look for the longer pants anything that's going to create a longer. Silhouette petit ladies look amazing in abu cut gene with a. He'll under it because that's gonna make the legs look a mile long. Go up okay. How about more like the rectangle body shape right not only curves just kinda straight rectangle. Look again it's going to be about creating the illusion right so with a rectangle buddy shape. You're going to create the illusion that you have the waste that you nip in so this is a great body shape for wearing a little thin belt around your waist belting. Even your cardigan addresses the great thing about rectangles that they generally are proportionate between their shoulders and hips so they can get away with a lot of different styles worth sheath dresses in the straight pants and all of those things but really going to be about accentuating that waste and creating the illusion of having that little bit of an hourglass curve. Yes i love that because again when you're going to invest in something like close right that we're talking about it's like yeah then you want so that's gonna fit you and it's gonna make you just feel wonderful. Okay what are some don'ts some don't so i am a rebel. When it comes to fashion rules was talking about fashion rules a little bit. You know the whole wear white after labor. We can all do that like we. We can definitely do that. I wear white jeans year round now. But i think the biggest question i get asked honestly in the space of what are some do's and don'ts with fashion rules. A lot of women comes to me. And say i don't know what's age appropriate anymore. That's good yes and my rule assist is a little bit different but i like to say don't dress and what feels age appropriate dress them. What feels you appropriate and meaning does it make you feel stylish. Does it make you feel more confident. Does it fit and flatter your body. You can ask yourself these questions and the selfie never lies so if you ever. This works for anything if you're ever curious. Does this work for me. Take the selfie. Look at the picture and you should be able to tell from that picture and if not then send it to a friend. That's going to be direct and brutally honest with you. That's that's good. That's good that's what's so hard about now mike. You know. i'll see different trends. my gosh. she's sixteen year old. I don't know a mama. Three i don't know gay or not. Yes just like whatever. Whatever works for you and i think that's a great rule. Okay gosh this is also good. It is because when we talk about budgeting specifically clothing is always not line item. Whether you're buying for your kids or buying for yourself. Which i think is important part of this to actually feel great yet us when we wise with the money that you have. These are great tips. Good to help the money. The dollar go further and the closet. Alison thank you so much for being here working everyone find you. Everyone can find me at. Get your pretty on dot com. Get your pretty on dot com and the book is sold everywhere everywhere. Okay make sure to pick it up again this is. I love these kind of topics. Because i'm like every day you know everyone's gotta get dressed. You gotta put clothes on to figure out what works for you what you feel great and and again. That's going to help support your budgets. So great awesome thanksgiving. Thanks rachel now. it's time for. Ask rachel so this is where i get to answer your questions. All of that and kind of coaching through talking to your situation is something that i love so much so today on the episode. I have stephanie. Here stephanie welcome to the show. I warning thank you so much for having me thank you. I was going to say. Thank you stephanie. I appreciate you coming on so tell us a little bit about you. Were calling from your kids where you guys are in your financial journey kind of all the things. Sure so my husband. And i we have three kids that we live in the chicago land suburbs and we finish the baby steps quite a few years ago and my question is how we can shift from. You know saving being a little bit tight with their money. Very cautious i mean. We still want to tell her money where to go. But how do we switch to spending an enjoying heavenly peace about spending money such a great question and it's so funny because i talked to so many people that are in baby steps one through three and it's like the grind and they can't wait to be acts like we just wanna be able to spend again enjoy and then sometimes when you get to that other side you're like wait. How do i do this. What's okay what's not okay because you're so used to those guardrails now. It's a little bit of a wider road so your question is so normal. I feel like. I've talked to so many people that have this question and kind of pretty commit so tell me that. So you guys are gonna babies up seven s which is pretty amazing couple years and we've been able to invest in. That's been really fun. We've always been givers and so we plan to continue to do that. But when it comes to like the funds south. I think the people most is to us wednesday like. We're kind of even al tight with their money. You're just very careful and that is not exactly the reputation we want We see ourselves as generous. It's almost like when it gets to be just like that extra stuff. We don't know what the rules are. Yes okay so tell me this number one. I'm not gonna worry by your reputation because you guys are great people. I know and you're super smart. You're on baby. Step seven which is incredible. So congratulations not many people can say that. That's huge absolutely huge. So what are the things that you're saying no to that you want to start saying yes to is that you go on a trip. Oh we could have in a nicer hotel or out to eat more or we want a new car like. What are the big things that you're thinking through or small things that you just find yourself saying no to where you think i could probably say yes and be okay. Wow they're big and small. I mean we have our kids paying further on starbucks and earning money and all that. But it's more of like a lesson than we can't afford it but our kids might not even know that and then also kind of the bigger things like are to junior high this year and we think like well we need something fun so that they'll continue hanging out with us like do we get a pool of the beginning bow but we always say no to these things because we just don't know what the rules are. Yes well i would say a lot of it is to focus on your motivation. Why so there's three things you can do with money. When you're on baby seven you can give it and we talk about that you know you are able to give like no one else and you guys are giving so i would say continue to even do that more and more. You can invest which you guys are doing and you can watch your money grow and you're doing for the future and then you can spend it so these three big buckets or the three big things you can do now so in that spending category for you all. Just check the motivation of what's going on. So for instance your kids. I think that's great. I think it's incredible that you're making them pay for it now. Could you give them a little bit each month and they have to kind of budgets that some of that money and learn that yeah. I think that's fine too. I don't think it has to be this really legalistic way to to raise your kids with money. But i'll say this growing up like heck no not given everything that we wanted. We had to work. We do all of that and so yes. Why is that a blessing and a gift that you're giving your kids in that way absolutely and honestly them thinking that you don't have a lot i think is great too. I remember like going through high school and being. We're some of the poor ones here at this high school. That wasn't the case. But i really was convinced. Like oh so and so. They have a big house and they may go. Thanks so much money right. And i think for high school or i think that that's great because you're showing your kids that like your joy happiness. Your life is not surrounded by just stuff right so your kids perspective. I think that that's awesome. And if you guys aren't kazillionaire and they don't know that until they're adults and you let them in on that. Because i think that is a conversation that will be needed later in life. Perfect but as for the motivation of buying these big purchases. I think if it's a small percentage of your net worth of what you guys make a year if you and your husband are in agreement you'll get something we want to do. It's gonna probably hurt a little when you pull the trigger right if you're going to build an ice pool. Those are expensive. If you're going to get a nice bow. Obviously those are expensive. So it's gonna feel oh gosh but listen on paper. It's it's good your motivation. You're not doing these things because you want everyone else. Guys are awesome in fact. That's the problem. You're awesome the pupil. You're which is great. So that's not your motivation. Your motivation is to do it for your family. All of gm's saying like the emotional side and the mathematical side are adding up to me and the relational side with you and your husband so all of this. I think that's a green light and it's gonna take it's gonna take a level of saying okay. We can do this but for me. It's that percentage and you're not being wasteful. I'll give you this. My husband and i are in the middle of planning a trip for our kids to disney and the budget. I want as much larger than the budget. My husband was. I was showing him. All the percentages pay this percentage of what we save every month if it's just this percentage is great and he's like rachel but the need of this this and that we're like missing each other on the mathematical the emotional which is just so funny. So we're constantly kind of in this conversation so even knowing that with your husband if you guys as much as you can be on that same page to say okay. It's not a big percentage of our net worth. We can do this. We agree and again the motivation of what it's going to do to our family is amazing. It's awesome so it's hard. Though i understand. I understand is there at kind of a scarcity mindset at all with you guys I think more has been probably and in most relationships. There's probably a little bit more of the spender. A little more of the saver and it has a lot to do with how. I was raised but It doesn't exactly make sense. So i'd like to kick that. That's right that's right. I know i think it is one of those things. Have just giving yourself permission to spend. Actually just doing it. And it's gonna take a little practice. So maybe it's not a boat. That's the first big thing you guys you know. Maybe you up your lifestyle. Small percentage for the next three months and kind of spend a little bit more than you're used to and just kinda start to build up muscle but again we're not going crazy here. I'm not telling you to go take cash out your four one k. To go buy a boat right. You're you're doing this in a really controlled encouraging environment. Really because of what you guys have done. So i hope that helps. I just want to encourage you give you that motivation that you can and you're okay and it's going to be okay. Yes that's awesome thank you. Thanks so much stephanie. For being on. I appreciate it and for all of you. That have any questions for me. You can go to any of my social media channels from instagram facebook. Youtube twitter all of it. And ask your question and maybe you can be a guest here on the show and stephanie again. Thanks for calling in insure your story. I think it's so helpful for so many people. Thank you so much. I love stephanie's question. Because it's one that i get a lot you know you guys. I mean you sacrifice a lot you kind of get into the spread them in the habit of just saving money bang on debt. When you get to a place you can actually spend it. You really have to enjoy it. You know we talk about living like no one else so later you can live and give like no one else. So again stephanie. Thanks for your question and thank you. Alison for coming on and chatting all things. Fashion close loved that conversation. And if you guys have not hit the subscribe button to the podcast.

Omnibus! With Ken Jennings and John Roderick

Episode 391: Middle Initials (Entry 786.LK0161)

"This message we are jennings and john rodrick. We speak to you from our present which we can only assume as your distant past the turbulent time that was the early twenty first century during the great cataclysm that will surely befall our civilization. We began this monumental reference of strange obscure human knowledge. These recordings represent our attempt to compile and preserve wonders esoterica. That would otherwise be lost. So whether you're listening from an advanced civilization or just reinvented the technology to decrypt our transmissions. This is our legacy you. This is our time capsule. This is the you have accessed entry. Seven eight six dot l. ks zero one six one certificate number two one eight three middle initial of stan listeners. Probably already know that in order to keep this academic project we're doing the omnibus going. In our time. You know we needed a source of outside funding. Yes and you. And i just want some corporation to step up weyerhaeuser omnibus our. I love it. You pronounce that. We're hauser texaco. How you've lived in the northwest your most of your life. You don't know how to pronounce weyerhaeuser. Is that right warehouse warehouse. It's gotta why though. Yeah but it's a don't say silent. why warehouse. I'm a stickler for the y you can. You can like dip down into the y. A little bit weyerhaeuser. But it's just saying. I'm gonna d. l. us island why weyerhaeuser warehouse. But yes. yes. I keep thinking that there's got to be some corporation that is also dedicated to the preservation of of history. That may be otherwise. Lost a time that could underwrite the show at the level of. Whoa what. what would we say. Well how how much would it cost for us to sell our souls to to a major corporate. I think we can do the show for thirty million thirty million like that's it that's all that's and that's everything top to bottom but think about think about the exposure that they would get Sure two times a week you know the incalculable omnibus sponsored by texaco. He can my episode. Today is on the refinement of kerosene. It's on about solar panels and also how bad the absence alignment changes a hoax. As we know in the absence of corporate sponsor we've had a grassroots movement of like minded individuals who support the show every month on our patriotic. We recognize that a hive mind is is as good as a corporation better better. Because there's no there's no marketing or public relations person to emails. There's hundreds of them have no power so we can just laugh at the emails and delete them. I wondered why felt such a sense of overwhelming common. It's true we never get a single email anymore from somebody saying. Hey we're gonna need you to get up at six and get on the hop on a call right people. Nobody wants us to hop on a call anymore and it's great. Although one of the perks we offer at a certain tier of we're not above prostituting ourselves. In any way well no early in any way things on the table. I will prostitute myself but there are limitations John if you at the washing bear level of donation at our patriotic john. We'll give you a lap dance and i will do an omnibus topic of your choice. You know give you. I won't take my jeans off. It'll be like a jeans on lap dance. your lap can be a close flap or an unclothed. A lab dance is i will provide the lab. I yeah i see and they have to dance on. You can dance in my lap. You're so generous. That's what giving a lap dads should be. I've got a killer lap as the thing. Yeah you've probably been santa. i was santa. Seattle's indie rock santa for over a decade in your lap got used once a year. It'd be out in fact There are there's at least one couple coup got married as a result of meeting on my lap. Yeah a couple of a couple of visit you you. You spread your legs. A little and they slid into each other and history was made one of them was a rather large fellow and one of them was a more dominion to the sized fellow. And i you know. And i was definitely santon. That was like you know. The more the merrier. So you know. Sometimes i'd have eight or nine people kind of all sitting on top of me. All sort of have a wiggling. It was a good time. The crazy thing is before they sat down on your lap. That christmas eve they were both straight. That's right and they looked at each other. It's a christmas miracle. They looked at each other across a crowded lap. And they're just the romance sparked and they're married to this day there they're happily still fact. I see one of them in in our book group. Is that why there is a prominent gay bar. On capitol hill called john roderick slap. John roderick slaloms. There has to be a story. I thought every time. I walked by oriental. Yes kind of a sort of a daddy leather bar now but yeah. It was originally christmas. Themed around any roxana. You know it. It did happen late at night in bars i had. They would put a big thrown originally at the crocodile. And then it moved around. And i would sit there and i had my santa suit on and they would just lineup and i was never happier. Frankly never happier in my line to santa privileges from john. You can suggest a topic for omnibus to cover and we will collaborate. So i if we get a list that feels like homework. I don't. I don't like i don't know about you. I like guidance. But like an assignment i like. I like some strictures. But i don't wanna feel like i'm writing a report for you a few times. People have made suggestions and in researching those suggestions. I found a different show. And i feel like that qualifies. They gave me a prompt. And i a leopard in germany. Funny place where we could do it of yellow out. I think we if we discussed the suggested topic off iran. But these are these are patriotic perks. for our supporters. And so we want to make it clear to everyone listening that it's actually really great and we totally take your idea in it and it makes the show better and so we have a queue of people who have given at the washington level this year. We're we're knocking out there. They're show ideas. And here's here's what. We received from one tom the dignity. I don't know if i'm saying that right. i'm digging. There may be a silent. You like the y. And weyerhaeuser is that. Where's the where's the you in that between the d. And the i d d do Tweeden do weeknd. Tom dewey dean and it could be french doin. Y'all when y'all tom do aletha rights. I have one thing that has always bugged me this idea for a show top. He only has one thing that bugged him play. If only we had a serena life as tom from ireland forty things in this room that bugged me. I'm irish but have a keen interest in north america. What is it with names. i'm talking about what is it with. us names. I'm talking about things like using the initial of the first name with the full second name for example. See montgomery burns this example. Right right right. I get particularly riled up by something like tom digging in the third or tom digman junior. This isn't found in the rest of the anglo saxon world to the best of knowledge. I'd like to know the origin of this. This feels like a male thing too but are there female equivalents your sincerely t joseph digman regan. Interestingly navien as i think about it it's often the letter c c thomas. How actor and my only got my own uncle. See calvert knutson did he. But he went by cal. He went on his desk. His his little nameplate would say see calvert city kelp recruits and. That's that's how he signed everything. And that's how he That's how his name appeared on all. Corporate correspondent was like those all. Wpa postseason it'd be like see old faithful. See the grand canyon. See calvert canoed the letters e in this case c. calvert. And i i mean calverton alone is kind of a fun name that you don't hear that often you might dig a calvert. I don't know very many children named cal you know. It's one of those names kind of went away. I knew a calvin my age. But i've never met a calvin younger than me but calvert. I know i understand you saying most cows are not calvert. Right there. Calvin they could potentially be mahan. 's or cal callaghan. It'd be a good girl's name. Eldrick celtic if there was an nba player kendrick. I wouldn't no. I wouldn't buy sheldrakes with x with an x but yeah and ask your doctor. Celtics is right for you but Yeah that's interesting i. We unfortunately gave my daughter several names which will probably talk about more. But i've i've suggested to her a couple of times that she start her name with a with a a single letter period and then some some subsequent name and so far she's rejected. I think it's because it does seem kind of like a boy thing. Yeah the junior and senior. The junior in the third thing. That so bothers tom. We're not gonna probably get into that much. Although i do agree that it's his. I was able to corroborate his finding which. I don't think i was aware of that. It's not in common usage. Really anywhere else. In the i mean maybe canada which is american north. We call it but the the uk an ireland. And i don't think even australia new zealand used junior and senior. My dad was a junior and never ever used it. And if you mentioned it to him he would. He would scowl scowling. But i had a friend in in high school. Richard winfield garnett the third and i used to really object to him calling himself the third because my understanding was that you had to have had to have the the first dodi you you had always well. It'd be alive at. It'd be alive at the same time right and his grandfather had died. And i said that makes you richard. Winfield garnett the second and he was like no no no. The third looked into the etiquette on this. There's no there's no formal definition miss manners actually believes in your finding but everybody moves up is but that's just proof that you miss manners are agents of chaos. Because that's insane. I learned why. Why should i use my name anytime. Someone of a different generation dies. That's absolutely insane. All of this is made up anyway. It is yeah why not make up a convenient version rocket like keenum. That's not how etiquette rules work. He's it's intended to be more complicated. Not less the But i do. I am interested in the subject of middle initials and You know to get into why there are see thomas owls and L ron hubbard's and and whatnot out there in the wild eight. Just a whitney browns. Just running wild hunt in the woods of new england. somewhere You you do have to understand how middle initials originated. Oh how middle initials originated before. We can fully appreciate how first initials yes. The initials because middle initials are fairly modern invention. Oh middle names are surprisingly modern. You have a middle name. That's you'd never use or oh well i mean. When i was young. I was known by all my family members as jon. Morgan and they never said the one without the other jon morgan. Because there were other. John's no there were no. Oh well the john's from the earlier generation so okay so this is something interesting. Well interesting to me. That'd be unprecedented for omnibus. Go ahead all the john's in my family at the age of majority. Turn to jack's so they were john's as boys and then became jacks. What happened in the night It like the to ferry. I think it was when they stopped wearing short pants and stopped needing a hook to lace up their boots. But i had. I had to uncle. Jack's both who of whom had been known as john as children and so in my family. John is thought of. I mean although it's are proper names it's thought of as a child's name and then you migrate jack. I was known as jon. Morgan jon morgan. And they're still family members to call me that that somebody yelling for you as a child. Jon morgan jon morgan. Mary hartman. Jon boy it does sound like somebody yelling to one of the waltons to fetch some water or to to feed the hands. And i think some of it was derived from kind of kennedy's version of john junior but then somehow. When i became a grown-up i did not get to be jack. I wasn't. I didn't transfer to jack and part of it. Was that the jacks were still alive. The old the older generation. It's peter pan syndrome. You never grew up. Well that to some what you could decide to be jack at some point. I and there are people that that. Call me jack. But it's just a it's kind of a. I don't know a romantic name. But i what happened. Was i lost morgan. So people in my family stopped calling me. Jon morgan except for the the truly old ones pricey. Your wikipedia calls you jon morgan. It does because i. yeah. Because i'd never i'd never. I'd never seen you seen that. On a checker a weird your house is full of weird plaques with your name on it and none of them have that middle name or initial jon morgan. Well i am your john. M rodrick john roderick right in the language of middle initials and i think maybe at one point when i was twenty one i briefly styled myself as j morgan roderick yes the first time i the first time i put my name in the phone book well actually the first time. I put my name in the phone book. I said i called me myself. John ignatius rodrick because i was an insufferable eighteen year old. You just read a confederacy of dunces. Or you didn't wanna get phone calls. You both yeah. I mean it was just. It was like a gnome gnome phonebook. I is a weird middle. Initial it really. You don't trust somebody. Who has i mean if somebody has an xs middle initial. You're like this guy's terrific xavier. Yeah but if somebody has is a middle initial you really wonder what went wrong. Can i jennings well. Yeah but catholic you could be. You could be a jesuit ken. Ken ignatius roderick. No but j m j. Morgan roderick seemed because morgan is a good. That could be a good name. Could have been known as morgan sure. I'm kind of a morgan. Wouldn't you say morgan roderick. Sounds like what is that very welch. What if i was your old west author like morgan john roderick It's pretty good multiple. Names go back to the way wait. What's your middle name. Wayne the ws for wayne. Serial killer kim w jennings. I've seen that. And i'm the third and i did not advance when previous kenneth we jennings pass. Oh you're kenneth wayne jennings the third you never put that on your checks. I don't the same reason. That richard winfield garnett the third use it. Oh i thought it sounded important. That's why you objected to that because it applies directly to you. Yeah yeah i would i would. I would have moved up to junior now. Yeah but requires my dad to decide. He wants to be senior. Also he's keeping the to that forces you to keep the three. No he's still junior junior. But that's what forces you. He likes to say that you know. Because i'm always ken jennings in the president. He's ken jennings junior. It's really been a it's not identity crisis and possibly time travel paradox for him. He's he's sounds like the the son of his own son. It's bill gates is a junior. Yes but what The way they differentiated is that His father called himself william gates senior. And that's that's one you don't your father could just become senior. He could if he believed in your manners. Agent of chaos. Everybody moves up one. All the time doesn't that sound better. Ca kenneth wayne jennings senior. You'd be you. He be Just aspiring his whole life to become a senior break out of that junior mole he goes from sounding like a serial killer cowboy to sounding like a bank president kenneth wayne juniors seniors get used less for the first of the name can just leave it off. He's the original. Wash it he. After he's the right man it would be a rhetoric him to call him senior he was. He lived his whole life without being a senior until had a child. Change your name just because you named a kid after you you. Don't you already named a kid after you. You've definitely got an inflated sense of yourself. Yeah you know the the tendency to name children after ancestors after their after their genealogical legacy or heritage is really at the core of what created middle names. 'cause morgan is the Is a family name. is that right. Yeah family family surname. Yeah you know. The romans had three names often guys. Julius caesar in they would be. There would be a pre norman which was like your personal name. Guys was julius. Caesar's equivalent of john. Ken and then. Julius is your noman your family name. Oh that that was the equivalent of the surname and the third name which is often what we remember today in the cicero or whatever that was called the cog newman which originally it was kind of nickname later it became kind of supplemental hereditary name to distinguish different branches of the family. You know how you would you know. I have this problem today. i just. I had my brother's family visiting me. That's the that's also the jennings's and then my parents came over from scam to go to the ball game with us a neighbor the jennings is too so i can't tell my sister had the jennings's were staying with us. I because i'm the jennings's so you can say the olympic jennings says or the utah jennings right exactly so. This was. The roman cognitive carcinoma became kind of the equivalent of that. Or if you did something awesome in your life your cognition could become a sign of that like if you wanna battle you could become magnus maximus or something. So your dad is ken. Jennings junior you. Are ken jennings jeopardy jeopardy us is a do you have a do you ever use. No i mean there are some that rod roderick long winters. There's some there's some nicknames that people might apply to me but i'm not going to adopt a myself and as a result you can have. It became fashionable because fads always sprawl to have multiple cog no mona. Where if you accomplished multiple things you would just keep adding names and this seems a little odd to us to have the family name in the middle and then a series of kind of descriptive or delimiting titles. But it's this is the exact same system that's used today and a lot of east african cultures action so it's apparently. There's something intuitive about it. Classroom these bantu people did not get it from reading about cicero well. In hungary the last name is first and that's true in korea to yeah and And china and japan as well. Oh the last name is i really. Oh i didn't realize that. About japan and china. I mean you can say it in. It's commonly anglicised especially for japanese. People would say well t- chiro suzuki but but if they were saying it in the old fashioned way the date of way they would say suzuki each year. You put certain. I i did not know. Maybe that's part of the asian ethos of putting family before self. You literally do it. I wonder about the hungarians because it's not something that happens anywhere else in europe but then of course they aren't from europe tone gary. Don't get me started the hon. Hunted hungry is for hon. Right right for honey honey. I'm home. I'm from franz composer franz liszt or list frogs you would call me since we're both on gary and hello to she halo to she.

Yeah there should be space-age way to we're living in an age of wonders spacious space age equivalent of leaves a hole in the ground. And what is it can. It's the hello to she three point. Oh modern day attachment okay. It cleanses very serious. Lunges you with the precise stream of freshwater again not something available to our hunter gatherer ancestors unless they sat on the geyser.

This is precision stuff. You're not you're not putting your pushy in a raging torrent no eco-friendly. Because you're gonna use less toilet paper. It's easy to install because it doesn't require any electricity or additional plumbing and it's affordable. Yeah well that levels the playing field only some people have. You don't have billionaires to have clean butts and everybody else. The ninety nine point nine nine nine percent of humanity to have unclean butts. Yeah we should start calling billionaires clean butts. Hey what's up clean. But i bet you're really clean and really get them.

Some multiple names are used little. What we think of is a surname we think of it as just a worldwide convention that the first name is the given name and the second name is the surname. But as you've mentioned the family name but as you've mentioned it's different in hungary and east asia There are all over. You know in russians have patronymics where your last name is just middle name that means like son of and then your father's name in iceland. That is the surname fig. This is daughter in spanish. Speaking culture people have two different last names gabrielle garcia marquez and one is your father surname and one is your mother's oh and which comes. I think it's father than mother. Oh interesting and father gets retained. Let's not kid ourselves still much. She still patriarchal culture. So gabriel garcia marquez's children. Were there any would have the last name garcia not marquess keep garcia and then their mother's name. Oh how cool. If i understand correctly i mean. The reason i'm named john roderick is because the welsh. The welsh were son of john son of roderick roderick son of john and i think in my family pre english administration they just traded five or six different names. And this was the problem because even in small town in wales. You've got roderick son of john who was son of roderick. Who is son of john. How do you tell the who tell them. All apart. i think when the the the british census came in. And i i always picture a guy sitting at a desk and all these coal miners lined up. And they're walking one know. Walk up to the ten. What's your name roderick son of john. All right you're john. Roderick autry rodrick john and just write it down in a book and then it it enters into history in the domesday book. I must be true. You can't follow my family history. Past that moment there is no following the genealogy in wales you just get to that first day and you can read and writes how and ruined ruined and you know you can see through the mist to roderick son of john but the first person to enter into the world is is john son of roderick yet the lack of opportunity for confusion just the fact that you know. Fewer people is probably what kept middle names from becoming common in medieval europe. One guy named jeffrey cedric. You're good albert. There can't be more than one calvert And so it was just cities or towns that necessitated this in italy in thirteenth century italy. There started to grow a fashion for giving children to given names at birth and it was actually for religious reasons rather than reasons of convenience. These people wanted to give the child the name of a saint to show their religious devotion also presumably to protect the child to bring the child the favors of saint ignatius or whoever but there's also the long-standing tradition and maybe deep-seated human need to pass along something of your heritage. So you wanna give the child a family name and if you want to give the child family name antecedents name. The obvious solution is well. Why not one of each. And that's what became popular then and Name in the middle. Yeah i think usually the family name first and the saints name in the middle and even though they were religious they never you know. These were not middle initials although you'd think they would have been following the examples of jesus h christ. What's h holy. The there's an object of the for hallmark because god cared enough to send the very best offer. That's lovely but these were not initials yet but as you pointed out. There's a certain kind of aristocratic or aristocratic air to a three person. Three named person. Yeah or maybe in the case of your daughter a four or five days person yeah The person who wants to add the the suffix like the third like your friend richard bullet griffin or whatever his name was you or me this is why my son is not the fourth because he's not named kenneth. I'm not i'm not against name kenneth. It's fine. I don't know if i would. It's not my top ten. Yeah it's a little bit aged. Well it's the is a child's name the problem well. It's like a british a british child's kenneth. I'm not an engineer for the bbc. Like i'm not doing sound levels for the kinks right now. My name kenneth. How many levels name. It doesn't have a serb before it. You shouldn't be named kevin. But it's extremely posh. I mean the poshness for instance. The poshness of brian eno form. He's already entered into the omnibus as the as the developer of oblique strategies. Brian enos full name is brian. Peter george saint john the teast de saal ino pretty posh you judge the poshness in the length of the knee and the number of times that you have like a french french conjunctions or the number of times that the french articles in the name la or hyphen popping up in the middle of the name very very very poor hyphen is what shows like. In actual terms of income that comma would show. The number of comments would show how much money you have right but but in terms of names. It's definitely the hyphen. The hyphen is the poshest. Punctuation mark. the piano player of keen. Tim rice hyphen. Oxley has a very posh name. Also tim rice oxley the because he couldn't go by tim rice or tim. Oxley both also pretty posh the but that's a recent development middle names were not or a profusion of millions. We're not a hallmark of aristocrats in the uk. In the year eighteen hundred the turn of the nineteenth century Only ten percent of british subjects had a middleman emmy middle name at all let alone seven it did not spread there at all like you know. It started in italy by time in the nineteenth century. Almost half of french people had a middle name. Typical and it was largely men. You know this was true. Ancient rome as well. You know women would only have to name. Slaves only have one. It was a marker of state so in these patriarchal societies it was largely male though not entirely And it was not until the early nineteenth century. The custom spread to britain and And i think like most new additions. It started in the upper classes. There was a a fad for example of giving your child a middle name for the clergyman who baptized him. Oh which would be weird. Here's a guy you only saw once. Well actually we got the name of our daughter from the nurse that delivered her while there. You that's the same thing The first name or one of the middle names Actually i interesting. Yeah you just dodged a bullet that she was not delivered by olga of a risk right. Blonde blanche blanche blanche the last blanche delivered. Your baby was catherine domenici. Did she have any Middle names or is the key mostra feeder middle name from the she was extremely stupid. No i don't believe so. I mean if you're nobility back then wait. Does she have multiples katharina. Maria romulu dill lorenzo domenici. Wow look at her. so in. In in continental europe it was already becoming a sign of status to have a profusion of names. Yes just like all the extra things. Yeah your extra paintings. Extra country homes. Why not extra names and this is true of names today. Have you seen the freakonomics research about how you can use social security information in the us to see a new name enter in Kind of affluent. These are the people with the with the The desire to seem unique by creating new names but then they kind of waft downward and as soon as they As soon as they become names that have become to the rich tainted by belonging to working class. People or god forbid minorities. That's when they start to go out of fashion with with the upper class. I've never yet seen anyone named mick george or chevy. That wasn't a rich person. How's your george. So i'm waiting. I'm waiting for the first. Like nascar driver named mcgeorge. The ends of this was true as well in the uk of middle names. It started as a it started as a fad for people with money. And that's why to this day. We have this stereotype of long or hyphenated names belonging to The wealthy and then it started to spread downward in the us It was not common during the colonial period you know. None of the founding fathers had middle names only five percent of americans at the time of independence had a middle name and yet one hundred years later. Roughly by one thousand nine hundred. It was almost universal. Won't so there's an interesting thing a tipping point that gets reach. How quickly did that happen. it's essentially. It's not generation but it's a century and in the nineteenth century. You know now we have data. We start to look at who these people were about. Three fourths of these middle names were family names. Lineage but fully a quarter of them were first heroes In the chesapeake region in the nineteenth century fully forty percent of families had a child named after george washington. I i have some in my own family. Yeah if you look at genealogical records in that period is just ubiquitous that it was just understood and it's a it's an understanding of the founding fathers that we don't have today even in even in very patriotic conservative circles. People are not naming their children. Thomas jefferson whatever anymore and it may be because that's become tainted by becoming accustomed african american culture. You know having. Oh sure roosevelt. Do you have children name for franklin roosevelt or there are more than one men in my family. History named william henry harrison pretty. He was a war hero before he was a a a briefly president. So this is not just well. Guess it's gotta be after the current chief executive no matter how boring because he was a hero the hero today but he was a military leader of the indian wars. Yeah typically battle. Tippecanoe that's right. And so and and these were ohioans. Western ohioans and william henry harrison figured large. You know with chase to come right out of there to come his brother at least so it's hard to say why this happened in america over the course because this is this is essential to wear middle. You can't have a middle initial without a middle name of the first you can. There are people that have without middle name but it would be unlikely for them to evolve on their own right right. You know what. I need a w The first dozen presidents. Only john quincy adams had a middle name and presumably to distinguish him from his famous father. Yeah like john quincy john. Quincy go get water from the well. After john quincy adams no american president had a middle name until eighteen forty four. When james knox polk was elected that was the first president with a with a middle middle name. That wasn't trying to yeah. There wasn't john quincy adams And yet from the middle of the nineteenth century from ulysses grant on ever. us president has had a middle name. Except for benjamin harrison and william mckinley and they both had excuses. Benjamin harrison was named for a signer of the declaration of independence in his his in his family. Who was just benjamin harrison. Because he came from a time before Middle names and william. Kim was named for his father. So they're both. They're both throwback names every president since the civil war has had a middle name. Well every post andrew johnson president of sentimental and it wasn't until the twentieth century the world war one induction for him was the first. Us government formed the even had a space for middle name. Oh so in the twentieth century we started the middle names in middle initials on four. What was the last. Us president the didn't have a middle name. it would be william mckinley. I believe and we've had presidents who went by their middle names. Thomas woodrow wilson and john. Calvin coolidge and You know there's an interesting case with president grant whose ulysses grant is pretty. I think central to the story but his first name as we'll see in the second is not ulysses now middle initials did not become super customary in the us And again they appear to have not spread much outside the us until the twentieth century. Every president from fdr gerald. Ford i think seven presidents in a row not just had a middle name but used a middle initial on f. kennedy franklin d roosevelt's right Linden well linden was always lyndon baines i i think it's lbj lyndon johnson like think high school in texas are are not lyndon johnson. No lyndon baines johnson he was he was one you know. You know if you say richard mille house nixon. You're doing it as a. Yeah it's richard nixon. Yeah you're doing it as goof on him but lyndon baines johnson is is i think how either. Lbj or lyndon baines johnson they you know the wikipedia entry for lbj is lyndon b. Johnson isn't really it is. I've never heard anybody calling then. I think you're missing out richard nixon. I wasn't carter the first year. That didn't have in fact carter was sworn in. I believe as jimmy. Wow and i think that was the thing i'm new. I'm a breath of fresh air just southern peanut farm. That's right. i'm just here to token a very sort of softer palette voice. And i think that was a distinct choice that he's the he's the common man gerald r ford. Timmy cada jimmy and then ronald reagan lost it right. There's no think of row presidents. Since i mean for the bushes you had to. Yeah but nobody said w. and then a part of it is the The continuance of of nicknames. It sounds weird. Bill clinton is william jefferson. Clinton sounds weird to say bill j. clinton the formality of the middle of the first name cloud nicknamed clashes with the superfluous middle initial bill. Jay although joe biden does do it right. Yeah joe are biden does joe are so i'm on the i'm on. I'm on whitehouse. Dot gov and joe are sounds like the name of a character from the tv show. Dallas lyndon johnson is in fact listed as lyndon johnson on whitehouse dot johnson. Okay how am i kind of want to see who is but you know that's just the convention of the page. But it's true they. They do not say herbert hoover who did not use his middle initial and they do not say jimmy carter they say james carter But after that it's up to the president barack obama does not use his h Perhaps for because stance russain doesn't care to bring attention to. I think he's joke was always that like i got my first name from my father and i got my middle name from someone who never thought i would be president running for president but i thought he was. I thought he was going to say i got. I got my middle name from the true leader of of the free world. King hussein of jordan king who said you're the Barack obama and his foundation to create his presidential library changed. Its name a few years ago. From the barack h obama foundation to the barack obama hunt. Wait he's still sort of trying to deemphasize. It would seem after you've retired as president. You should really put it to the four boy.

Apply i have to wonder why middle initials in the twentieth century. I mean you can say that. The profusion of middle names in the nineteenth century was a result of this increasing density. We've talked about now. You might know to john. Smith's or or your employers files might have to john smith's and suddenly there's more utility to being able to distinguish between them with the middle second second given name But while letter showing up in a name You know there are some british examples to me the first middle and first name and initial that precedes the middle name. The thomas sowell of the world That that sounds kind of british to maybe because of writers like w somerset. Mom and h rider haggard. Yeah but that was kind of uncommon and Maybe as as a little bit bohemian as as artists. They're okay adding a dash of a letter. Where why why did somerset mom not go by. What i presume his williams. That is william and i often his books would say william somerset mom but friends called him somerset and cool name what full disclosure you know like i do have a first name. I'm gonna. I'm just gonna let you know the w clues you in. Why is w e b dubois all three initials. Yes so those are wondering if the fad for middle initials in twentieth century. America came from turn-of-the-century celebrities who use multiple initials. Pete your p t barnum's or you w e b dubois but i think you have to look back to the civil war where there were earlier and there were some of these three initial guys jabe stewart. Pg t beauregard. Most generals did not use their middle names or initials mead and burnside had middle names but did not use initialized them but obviously the two biggest names of the war ulysses s grant and robert e lee used middle initials right and a time when it was not common middle names were starting to catch on and initials were not yet common. Robert lee and ulysses ulysses grant is going to be a general and president of the united states. No matter what you say. But robert lee just does scan. Yeah but robert ely. I cannot explain the ian robert ely. It's for edward. But i i can't explain the initial where game the choice to use an initial. What inspired him to do it. Yeah it may have been military. We know the story of ulysses s grant who was born hiram ulysses grant family the family friend who signed him up for westport did not know him well and perhaps assuming that invented initial perhaps assuming that would be his mother's maiden name which is a common use for for middle names to honor the mother's family by making they're making the mother's maiden name a middle name of the child so it's possible that this family friend thought that his mother's maiden name of simpson might be his middle name and just put esambayev form and that stuck at west point because it's us. Oh right friends are westbound called him. Sam uncle sale well-done full done west point but he had an asked that really stood for nothing until he decided. While i'll i guess. I'll just use the family name of simpson. Because it was a mistake. He should have been hiram ulysses grant. There's some speculation that maybe he just did not like his initials could was initials are hug. What a sweet name. You and i would love that. He did not come from a time. We know there were a few boys in westport in the eighteen four hugger. Us usa grant. And i wonder if there is something about and the guy that promoted him just didn't even know. His first name was hiram he's like oh yeah a little ulysses think you went by ulysses. He went by his middle name. And so the guy filling out the forms got it wrong in the rest is history and it. It may have changed american history because having ulysses escrow you depending on which part of the country. You're from ulysses grant robbery lear to pretty formative names and like people who grew up in our age where the president always had a middle initial. You start thinking of that as a a seal of a sign of status and power right But when your father named you or your your mother named you it was before we understood that that name middle name of wayne is a serial killer name they should avoid at all costs right and in my case it was a family name that went back to my grandfather. Born in the nineteen twenties so obviously jennings. Oh my god. The crimes he committed we may never know may never know all those by all those disappearances and that's pretty missing drifters pretty good at the perfect crime. Do you think it's something about it. Certainly matches already of twentieth century military culture. They would be okay with a letter standing in for a name rights just as a mark of efficiency or you know what i mean. Yeah i do you know. The military would have forms for for regular folks in an age when regular folks otherwise not be appearing in paperwork So maybe there was something about military culture that made ulysses s grant or robert e. lee sound not avant garde but Shirl kind of rigor kind of formality. That's yeah that well guess. It feels strong and in the twentieth century. Yeah that's what came to be conveyed. I don't know if it's inherent or just the fact that it started out with these generals but it conveyed a certain kind of strengthened official status and just became director in the twentieth century. Everybody had middle. Initials spread even to fictional characters. You know they're a. It came to be realized that there was a certain funny tension between the formality of a middle initial and the reality of kind of off the wall characters. So you get alfred. Pretty knew exactly. Or john q. Public has kind of the joke about you. Know mr and mrs middle. America are john q. Because it's funny. You know it's middle initials q and we have you know because these things persistent popular culture longer than in real life. They're still james. T kirk where symboli- stands in for authority and homer j simpson where. It's a certain kind of old timey database. I don't know what wile e. coyote is. It's not oh it's not even much of a pun wiley. I it always bothered me. Wile is not a name so you're not getting any kind of double meaning out of calling him wile e. but it's just the twentieth century ubiquity of middle initials. I don't think it was until. I was in my thirties than i understood the joke. There is no joke wildly. He's wyle he is widely but there's no joking him being wile e well and also because while not name widely with a y actually isn't that generation would have no about wiley post while wiley coyote wiley leaning leelee. But that was not. I think about it that was kind of popular in mid century. American popular culture. Kermit t- frog with the joke that the tea was for the but he when he was an anchorman on the air he would announce himself as as as current tea frog. Just like george. Edward r murrow hermit. T- frog. Well you know. I may mr middle name period. Last name t. You think mr tease middle name is period. He said he that was nation of it. Name mr second name period. Third name t. The reason why that would be perfect for the omnibus is because This is a swiftly vanishing moment in twentieth century life time when everybody from ibm executives to to athletes had middle initials. Do you know anyone who doesn't have a middle name. I've met someone who claimed to have a middle name. And i forget who they were. My wife did not have a middle name at birth. And this is. This was not uncommon in women of our generation so that they could keep presuming that they would marianne presuming. They would take their husband's name that they could keep their their father's father's name as a middle name. Or it's the and it you know in the case of my wife was a my father-in-law didn't have suns at the time. So maybe this is his shot at preserving his last name is there any at any point in time That your wife mindy was referred to as mrs kenneth wayne jennings. That's not a thing anymore. I mean maybe on like it might still happen on. You know wedding or dinner invitations. Yeah you know doctor. And i think our wedding invitations might have said dr and mrs mundy's father's name invite you to right. Oh i see but that's that seems to be going away for ideological reasons. Yeah the idea. I mean it's it's weird enough that we make the customers for many. Whether to change their name that marriage they would lose their giving me as well. I saw it not very long ago. mrs you. Know william f banks. Something and i don't remember what the context was but it definitely was like. Oh wow still. Whoa heck a- slam a slam not really hecker slam. It was just. I got echo slammed. The heck islam would be a good name for like a wrestler finishing move some little little prince looking guy who finishes you off with the heck aslan. How long initials are on the decline. A few years ago new york. Times writer named bruce feiler attempted to quantify you know because the the decline of the middle initial in american public life if you look at the congressional when what he called of members of congress is their roster across the rotation if you look at the the members of congress and the united eighty four percent of you members of congress had middle names in one thousand nine hundred seventy it was still seventy percent so it held up into And then the baby boomers killed killed it by two thousand nineteen. It had dropped to me. When did he do this work. Two thousand fourteen. I can't rebound writing by the last day in the last decade and a drop to thirty eight percent. Now you're not saying they don't have middle names just that they're listed. This is the use of the middle initial middle. Names are more common than ever and as you point out people are maybe giving kids a number of middle names because just for the kind of the fun of the parents. The child will not benefit by this in any way and might in fact be in our case. Our daughter has tried a couple of different over middle names. But what happened. Is that her first. Three names her first name to middle names actually form name like jeb stuart. Nobody called him. J e b. They called him. Jeb save time and and then apparently jeb. Bush was named after him weird but But yeah our daughter for a while on her softball team was known as the name that her first three initials make interesting. Yeah but that did not stick it. Did she still has called that name by several by people that know are and i bet you'll have the softball name. Yeah it's kind of cool. Sports name many parents who have given their and it's really is just. I think it's kind of the ego of childbirth like the creative impulse like why. Why give a kid one name if you could do six. Yeah why not put mcgeorge in there but the loss of middle initials. I'm assuming is maybe more of an egalitarian impulse. Sort of the jimmy. Carter vibe of like. I'm just a not one of these washington people. The reason i didn't they my child kenneth wayne jennings before because it sounded a little bit prakash. The fourth is always a bad. Well also he will be the third now because everybody would have moved up. We don't do family. That's not correct so there was. You gave your son like like cool hippie name like dylan like a handkerchief around the heads middle name. So he could actually be t- dylan jennings if you want to be a. But today i feel like that's also been colored his previous just by all the kinda robber barons and j pierpont morgan's and j gays and t boone. Pickens did it. But t dylan. Sounds very bohemian. To me tiki dylan. Jenny used to sound bohemian. I think to have the first initial. I like i think. Picasso experimented with being pc. Ruiz picasso on when he would sign his work. Or maybe it was. Yeah maybe maybe p. or something but yeah pablo ruis. Picasso is a hard name to say and it also not for them but pablo. Ruiz ru public delightfully off. The latin lantana us us us northern europeans. Who can't y But it doesn't sound like a cool painter. You're right you can see why. He went with pablo picasso bub-bubba. It's the rhythm of it. Nobody ever called pablo picasso. Bruce feiler probably all his wives mistresses. Bruce feiler also looked at pulitzer winners. Found that in the twenties and thirties. The majority of them had middle names by the forties and fifties. It was down to half. Then there's a big dip between the eighties and the nineties from forty three to twenty six percent between ninety and people who previously were using middle initials Dropped them nicholas kristof writing in the new york times always nicholas kristof and then he wrote a column about how You know what i just. This just conveys the wrong thing anymore. This now seems old timey. And i'm gonna lose the deal. It was around the same time that obama's foundation lost the h. It just it just started to seem like a relic. I guess to me. It sounds like a board room boardroom. and it's still true in i i've thought about this before because you know the. Us governments increasingly gerontocracy. And that's why. Donald j trump and joseph r biden still kind of have the will have the middle initial probably on their presidential portrait and the same is true in Among latter day saints the leadership of the church is in the seventies and eighties and nineties. And they all still have the middle initial because they came up in a time when that conveyed official status in america. You gotta have a middle initial on your name plate and somehow the the hyphen in exile alexandria okay. Ceo cortez is totally different right. The hyphen seems progressive. And it's no longer feels aristocratic. It feels i. I because the names are latino. Names that i don't know because the suggestion is that the her parents combine to make a lino a. Hyphen name. yes and that's true today. That's true you will see more. Yeah hyphenated kids at a seattle middle-school are coming from progressive parents keeping the mom's name around at least for a generation right. You could just keep going forever. You know the their kids might have four hyphenated last stadiums and their kids will have eight but she's a c. which is very jfk. She is the first american politicians since lbj j to to have the three letter thing. She's going to have an airport sunday. I do think we lose something in in losing the middle initial. Because there's been some research on what middle initials do convey in two thousand fourteen to Social scientists. i know you love these guys. we're just one more thing about ao. See her Her mother's last name was occasional. Cortez so that's that's her mother's name. Yeah she doesn't have father's surname at her father's last name was occasionally remond interesting so she was able to keep. I wonder if you do you think her mom adopted her. Dad's okay zero. Yeah do you. She took the cossio. I think is it. Oh all sorry. How long have you lived in the northwest john and not been able to pronounce accounts pretending. I think that her mother's maiden name was cortez and so sergio kazi cossio remond. She took married. Mrs ms cortez and became cosio. A coat cossio cortez. But it's interesting that she kept her. Well whatever data they wanted from this would have been the gabriel garcia marquez. Switcheroo yeah interesting. Here's what happens when you lose a middle initial though there are some costs in two thousand fourteen whine and ap van tilburg of the university of southampton. And eric are egwu of the university of limerick soviet aren't british and it's a british and irish university but the names appear to be dutch and of african or west indian descent. They performed an interesting study on middle initials. They would give us You know one hundred undergraduates a textual sample to read it was a small. It was a factual but not technical description of einstein's a formulation of the theory of relativity. They would read a short excerpt about relativity and then they would Report on how You know intelligent or or Elevated they found the text of the sample to be and the sample would be variously credited to david. Clarke a david f clark david f p clark or david f pr clark and you will not be surprised to hear rodman. What's your guess. What do you think the finding is what. What effect is the middle initial. Have on readers of the passage. Oh does it alienate. It actually does not the a single middle initial David f clark's work was found to be smarter and more competent than the work of david clark writes where the only difference is the middle initial. I believe and that happened again when three middle initials. There's no bump with two but a bump to three david f. Pr clark seems smarter. Still than david f clark. I believe it is the smarter. Because he's got the f. Yeah the result held for female names. The result held for asking students which of them they would want to To join them on kind of intellectual competition but interestingly not an athletic competition if you ask who do you want to be on track team. You're swimming team. A middle initial didn't help so it doesn't it doesn't just conveys slows down. It doesn't convey strength or confidence. It's kind of nerdy conveys academic achievement. No other and you can get ready. The effect by adding a title professor david clarke and professor david clarke. I guess sound equally. Prestigious are intelligent But by losing middle names to this day we are losing the you know. If you wanna seem smarter you can add a middle. It's not too late to become john. M rodrick and while you're while you're fans i think i am john m roderick. I don't signed my name. That right do you have to go by the way i mean today. It's just the only people you see doing. Today are doing it for screen actors. Guild reasons right live right. Michael jordan cannot be michael jordan. Michael j. fox. There was already a michael fox. So michael andrew fox had to take on the middle initial j instead of a worked initial things. Jam are initial k. w. s. i. Don't i think i initial things users. Jj but. i do jamar every time. Jim art good. D- w is a problem it's got too many syllable. Yeah right. we'll do the The most interesting thing about initials. I found this goes back to hiram ulysses grant There's a one thousand nine study in which they looked at people whose middle initials formed a word. Okay divided them into good words hug. Whether you're middle initial is sad or rat or bug or dud and then they compared that to people whose middle initials were ace or god or win and in fact there is a very extremely measurable life span difference. What the the for the four shortest live d- initial combinations in the study were bad ones. People whose initials are sad only lived to be fifty nine point nine on average the rats die around sixty three the bugs also around the bugs and the duds also around in their sixty four year whereas ace lives to be seventy three years old on average god and win lived to be seventy four. Oh i don't know if. I believe this result. There could be. Maybe intervening variables. What what would it makes me think of is that someone applied for this grant and it was granted and someone spent a bunch of money doing this research or at least some money you call that grant what you call it. The hiram ulysses grant and that concludes middle initials entry seven. Eight six dot l. ks zero one six one certificate number two one eight three one in the future links in the unlikely event that middle name survive into a time when you're all just one big floating matt of seagrass. It seems like that little orphans running around or just named towed and scrammed new and stuff bug you probably one syllable names. Hey come here. You can find kenneth wayne shepherd kenneth kenny wayne. Shepherd is is a famous blues tar. So kenny wayne is actually has a has a. There's somebody already out there named kenny. Way as a city dweller. I feel like kenney is really stolen. Valor from i can't be blind kenny. Jennings kenny kenny jennings. I dunno. would've i started calling you kenny. When i was a kid. I was often kenny kenny. Because of the profusion of other people in kenner kenneth and my family right tell me opponent kenny and the fact that my side of the family came from light texas earning letterkenny. No no or slater. Kenny hor different kelly. I'm not you can find a kenneth here on the internet under atkin jennings you can still find the the shadow of me. The breeze that was once me at john roderick abut more likely you'll find me at my patriot on patron dot com slash. John roderick you can't support this show and we appreciate your support. This today's show middle initials was as ken said at the top. A user suggestion. Tom digman joint brought to you by the letter w. and the letter n. Support he that's right.

I'm alison pro your coast and i'm an intuitive life and business coach helping authentic and ambitious women keep the soul and success in their life and work through deep coaching savvy business strategy and connected community. This podcast is here to help. Bring insight awareness and action to your authentic and ambitious life. Let's do this. Hey y'all it's episode number one twenty nine lessons learned from belonging to high level masterminds. So i will get into that in a minute. Let me give you a little setting the scene today. Today is a sunday and it snowed here in central texas. And i am not talking the kind of like i little slurry that we get. Maybe once a year. I am talking. Three full accumulated make a full sized snowman. Snow right outside of oxytocin. Texas austin headed to that i live outside of austin texas in a little town called lago vista and was such a much needed joyful break at one point this afternoon i first of all. I have been in my reindeer pajamas all day. Long my the fire going in the fireplace. I'm sitting with a glass of yes sitting with a glass of wine watching outlander which my husband started. I was in my office doing some work. And all the sudden i heard the theme song to outlander and i it was just one of those moments where my husband blew me away. I think he has exhausted everything else and likes time travel but he can't stand period pieces so we're four four episodes in doubt later. This is my third time to watch it. Love it and my dogs were all piled on the couch. The snow was coming down and hired just looked up and was like oh this is just one of those moments so happy so happy so i don't know if the audio pick that or not. My husband just sneezed in the other room. I've been playing in the snow and watching outlander and drinking coffee and wine and cozy cozying all day instead of recording podcasts. But now. I am back in my bedroom. My husband has watching football. And i've got two of my rescue dogs who sponsor this show and we are going to share with you. Some of the lessons from Belonging to these highland masterminds. And so what. I mean by high level mastermind. I is. Let's see so. When i was in the real estate world we would pay like five hundred dollars to go to a giant conference. It was really a sales event to sell people into coaching this. Actually even before. I was a coach. Had as a coach. This is one of the ways. We got clients. We did all the big stuff on stage then we would have breakout masterminds in these masterminds would be like arno fifty sixty people like. I remember masterminding with a bunch of other coaches and we would be in groups of like eight or nine at a table and we would share ideas and then at the end of it was all join our coaching program. Join our coaching program. And you know. I'm all for it. I always learn something that i always got clients from it and i always signed up for cushing at it and then in two thousand thirteen i joined. I had had a couple of expensive coaches had done. A couple of high end mastermind. When i say high end i mean five figures in it so in two thousand thirteen. I did join my first small group coaching program. I guess you could call it a mastermind. My coach called it a long slip in at the time and i joined it was his program was six months and i paid ten thousand dollars for it and i had never paid six months for ten thousand dollars but for one on one coaching so i had not done a group like that before and i remember and i paid in full. I remember having a panic attack. I remember thinking what the hell did. I do And it was fun because within two weeks of actually joining his program. I had made thirty thousand dollars and and as soon as i did that i knew that ought this. This style of small group mastermind learning was really gonna work for me so i got coaching. And then i also got the expertise of being with other people in the room. I did two or three are actually three of riches different salons and then he has an even higher level more expensive Mastermind program he doesn't call it. It's called four p. c. And i was in the original group before see. I'm not sure how many years he's been doing that. I don't even remember what year it was. That was a very powerful experience. And then honestly i took a couple of years off from doing high level masterminds. I was in a group coaching program with my friend and colleague. Jon morgan It was still expensive. It actually still was high level but it was pure. Coaching really wasn't so much mastermind. But i definitely decreased my coaching budget. When i was building soulful success. So i started that program in two thousand seventeen in. We are two thousand and twenty. One and last year was the first year that i joined my current coaches high level masterminds. So i've been in her community and october two thousand nineteen. I joined her program. So thanks for bearing with me as i set a little context. My coaches now. Her mastermind was the most expensive mastermind november repaid for and sure enough. I signed up in october. We didn't start until january. And in october i again made thirty thousand dollars. I signed to fifteen thousand dollars clients to pay for that and So bring that up in a little bit. We've just completed in december. We completed my year with tara. And i knew i dunno. I knew back in august that i would restart with her and so we just restarted the very first week. I have my first one on one session with her and also last year. I started my own high level mastermind again. I used to do them. I took a few years off to do only one thing building soulful success for three years. That was all my focus. And so last year i started my own high level mastermind in a five figures close to twenty thousand dollar range women business owners who were achievement level. And for this one program. I did financial cap on it. You had to have made one hundred thousand dollars or more in a single year mostly to keep. I love working with newer people. I really love working with growth people But i wanted the level of question in conversation to be achievement level not beginner level. So that's why we put that in there and there is. I don't don't know that tara necessarily has a financial cap on hers. But i do know that all the women that have been in my masterminds both last year and this year with her are experienced multi six figure business owners. Okay so done with context. Thank you for listening to seven minutes. Thirty five seconds of not. Let's talk about the lessons. I have three really big ones. And the first one as i clear my throat we rise and fall to the rooms we are in and i am a Talk about independence in the second lesson but in this first one we rise and fall to the rooms are in i love being in learning communities are loved be. I love being in small to medium size learning communities where i can build relationships. If i'm in a big room with hundreds of people will be kinda shy. I'll be kinda slow. I'll be kinda introverted. And i remember even last year our very first group call with tara there you know there were twelve people in our mastermind and i can't remember the question she asked. I don't know if it was in the group or on our boxster channel. But it was like. I'm gonna pretend i've known you all for a euro already and i'm going to behave as if i've already known you for a year because i trusted tara to bring together the right room and so for me really recognizing and remembering that i thrive best. Most people actually do even. If you like working alone there are some pitfalls to that. But i thrive best. When i'm in a social learning community where i can continue to learn implement grow and do my inner and outer work in a way that i connect with other people social learning in connection. I remember recently. There's so many things could tell you that. I've learned over the last year. I have a whole journal in my lap of of lessons but one of the most recent is the one that propelled me actually in to writing my book which are making some pretty good progress on that. I felt a little silly bringing this to the room in this room. Full multi six figure business owners many online a couple offline completely offline like one of my mastermind members doesn't have a facebook profile. She's not on instagram. She was on no social media. She runs a construction company out in new york and she runs in business. And i remember the thing that i was bringing to. The call was actually my boredom. And a lotta times. In entry level groups are bringing the how to the how to how to like how to do this sales or how to get more clients these kind of things and and you know my brain was telling me i'm bringing was telling me this is such a silly thing but my heart was saying no bring it to the room and so i brought to the room i said okay. Here's where i am. My business is going really well. I'm taking care of my health. That's in progress. Things are lined up for business. I'm in. I'm doing a good job of doing the daily do of my business the fun stuff and the boring stuff it's like. I'm i'm practiced at this now. And i've got some extra time and space i might kids are grown and out of Have step kids. They're grown and out of the house off doing their own lives. So we're empty nesters. So i'm not dealing with any of that kind of stuff and i brought up this concept of boredom and talked about it for a few minutes and it was like i don't want to move myself into like super strive and i also don't wanna just fill myself with busy time and i'll never forget the look of my mastermind sisters on the call and there were quite a few of every single one of them but that we're also in the exact same place as i was and so number one it normalised a certain part of every business owners journey. And i don't know about you if you've been in business for a while. It's very likely that you may have burned something. Really good to the ground. And i know that in the past every two years i have burned something to ground to start it and here. I am starting the fifth year of success. And because it's working that's the other thing if it's working all the sudden does our subconscious brain think we need some more bullshit to to crumble and so a really profound moment to realize this was an achievement level problem. I wasn't alone. And what i discovered by talking with these other women than hearing their stories a i discovered that about myself but be it led me to a place of clarity and the next week. I heard my book writing coach. I just knew i. I had to clear that. Clutter out i knew. And and hiring header for the book riding Was kind of almost magical in the sense. That i've known her for a long time. I've known that i would hire her. And i've known since. I was nineteen that i would write books and i've thought about starting and thought about starting Thought about starting. And i didn't even know what book i would right after this energetic clearing but i knew and so here we are Four months later Quite a few chapters of the book done definitely still way in the first draft but so learning in these rams. And i know i kind of went into the depth of that but some of not some most every single conversation on one of my high level masterminds as a client and as a coach. There is a life changing insight. That often does not happen. In how to rooms the other section of we rise and fall two rooms were in. Is the business connection matrix and so looking back at the beautiful roster of clients that i have had meeting other people in other groups so even way back in the early two thousands when i worked for keller williams actually that was my first business mastermind. I forgot about that. Oh my gosh. i forgot about that. Sometimes i forgot. Life happened before. I ran my own business So when i was back at keller williams. I actually. I had two coaches. I had my keller williams and maps coaches and i hired this woman named christina. Merkley was my first out of keller-williams coach. she was had nothing to do with real estate. I hired her for a business and life incubator. It was a year long program She was a visual coach. I got my visual coaching certification. From her and i still have colleagues from that group. Karstadt was probably two thousand ten. I'll have to look at. That was a long time ago. But i still have connections and actually some of those people in those rooms have become my client somewhere. My clients in the visual. Coaching world were my clients in coming to art. Retreats in some have been my clients as far as coaching clients. It's amazing and so the business connection matrix right. It expands people. Like where do you go and meet other people. And i don't personally really like to go to networking meetings. I like to join communities and myself in communities learning communities so this got really excited. They're all it brings back. It brings back this wave of emotion of memories of faces. An as i sit here. I think sharing this podcast with these three lessons. One-two-three their little subtitles. I'm realizing that being in these masterminds has been the backbone backbone or is it the muscles. I think it's the muscles not really in anatomy person this the muscles that hold the backbone up we all rise together and i can't imagine often hear you. I'm trying to figure out how to say this. There's some people who like to work on teams and then there are some people who are the ones who have trouble allowing people to help them and probably high school. You were the one who did the entire group report because nobody else would get things done. And so you tend to work fast and you work on your own. And i tend to work fast and work on my own so i do like running parallel right so i may not be working with that person or have them working on my team but i really like working in the same room with other people going fast thinking deep executing quickly. It's a really fun for me. And so i wrote down independent scorpio men and actually one of my mastermind sisters. I don't know that much about astrology. I don't even know that much about being an aquarius. But when she asked me my moon and sun. I'm also My rising sign is aquarius. I'm the scorpio. Moon in scorpio. Sin i think. I got that right and she just looked at me. After hearing some of my story it was like. Oh my gosh will. Apparently scorpio's sting themselves like we have some self sabotage. And i will tell you. There's a lot of good things about being independent. There's a lot of good things about it. But when left to my own devices and not in that social learning high level room mice scorpio moon stings my ass so whether i burn my business down or i buy my own lousy thoughts being in those rooms and being with that coach that can hold me is so helpful for my ambition because i can question my ambition from time to time. I can get really doubtful about it. Not doubtful about my ability but we all have doubts So i don't necessarily. That's the thing i'm the kind of person and maybe you are too like you don't necessarily need a coach right whether i have a coach or not gonna get shit done whether i have a code or not. I'm going to do well in business in life i. I'm a master self coach. And i want to have a coach. I want to have high level peers. Around me i want to be having these conversations. It is important to me. i think. I told y'all earlier this year i had asked myself this question. I'm asking myself this question a lot this week to i think back in november around all the election stuff. I was like if i weren't so preoccupied with this election. What would be thinking about. And i was like. Oh i'd be thinking about being a master of myself master of coaching and a master of my business. Well that's what being in high level masterminds helps me do The second part of the independent where peo moon south that double down myself. It is a way for me to create a self challenge that i know rises me up and so speaking of rising up. Have i told you that my but is about three quarters of an inch higher than it was back in august. Well this is my silly analogy today. Guys i was thinking about this i august. We moved and we moved to a neighborhood with hills. Lots of hills. And so now. When i go on my daily walks used to i call it the cornfields. Obviously it's not a cornfield anymore houses but it flat cornfield is where it used to live and so we go for a walk and it was all about the length of the walk which was never very long and here where i live every single route i take i have a hill i can go up and so i can feel mike gluts and hamstrings having some tension some pressure some resistance in a good way that actually makes me stronger right and so i talked with my clients recently about this connection that i'm really getting about my physical health and my that connects with my brain how that connects with my mind but the mind body spirit connection. I know we've all been told about that for years. And all the sudden certain things are really clicking. That health is not just about being skinny and pretty good. It's about so much more. So this walking up the hills. I feel like the flat neighborhood versus walking up and down. The hills in nature is the perfect example of being in life without a high level mastermind for me. It's like walking around the suburbs. it's beautiful it's nice it's flat it's easy there's usually not a whole lot of i mean it's just it just is but walking around this neighborhood full of this unique beauty nature and these hills. I have a little bit of challenge every single day. And i know that i don't want so much challenge like i'm not at least right now. I m not necessarily going to be one of those A person who's really into what's it called. They have boxes where you're you're super super lifting weights. Although you never know. I'm not going to be hard. Core athletic. At least right now and i do like. I also don't want to be like hardcore couch potato. Righty i like a moderate level of exercise a moderate level of cardio a moderate level of lifting. And so what. I love about being a high level. Mastermind is that i have resistance that builds muscle. It's like walking slightly up a hill. It's just enough challenge to and learning. That keeps me inflow state and actually. That's a scientific principle. I don't remember what it's called but if you have a high level of challenge and a high level of desire at the same time it can keep you inflow state if it's too high can burn you out okay. So here's the one. I really wanted to talk about this. One is my personal lesson. That i got from mike coach my writing coach and even though i one on one work with her on fridays i work with her and some of her other clients this writing and this is my insight. That came out of its. It's come up a couple of times so this is my personal level and this is a personal lesson. Excuse me this is my personal lesson in the one that i am really standing in today when i'm at my best when i look over my shoulder and look at the past and where i've been my best. It's when i'm standing in this. I want you to get your pin out. If he can. If not open up your phone to the notes and i want you to write down the word credibility and i can't remember what month was. It probably was february last year. I'm pretty sure it was because right after that. I actually took my coaches advice. So my high level mastermind had started. Probably my second one on one and my coach looked at me about whatever it was. I was talking about starting my high level mastermind and waiting until may and i don't remember the conversation. She just looked at me. I'm sure probably showed up in a little bit of doubt and confusion as she looked at me and she said own your credibility alison. She's like you're one of the best sales people i know. You're so authentic in your sales are so tell you don't even realize how good you aren't sales because and so how good you are. Coaching holding a container. You don't even see it on your credibility take a moment. Look back at your past. Look at what you've built. Look at your time on task. Look at how you continue to grow and it was kind of a slap in the face that i needed. You know. it's like somebody throwing water on me. It was a pattern interrupt and my response was like. Oh yeah okay. And then i and then i immediately backtracked and was like will but i need this and this and this is no you. No you don't and she challenged me to do something i had never done before. She challenged me to text people. I already knew that had been clients or were solely members. She challenged me to create a list of forty names and invite people personally to my mastermind. Because i was kind of using the need to get a sales page up. I need to create the programs. Because you don't need to do that. And so i took a few moments after that call. I actually sat down on a three by four size note card. I keep note cards on my desk to take little notes for coaching calls in my own ideas and stuff. I'm working off one right now for this podcast and on this little three by four note card i wrote down both essence and the most simple details of this coaching program. And i took a screenshot of it made it pretty and i sent a handful attached and i got a couple knows and i got a couple of yeses. Actually one of the first person i send it to is like i'm talking with my husband right now. I'm in I did put one little blurb on social media that two people. I didn't have their own numbers at the time. But were both my clients. I had no idea that they wanted to do something like this. But they both reached out to me One of those clients paid in full. And she's already paid in full for next year next year doesn't start until the end of march and so are just you know tara helped me see what i couldn't see and that's what i do for my clients. I helped my client see what they can't see. I help them remember who they are. One of my current clients right now. How fun all i ever do. Help remembered it sounds so simple. You guys you women everybody. It sounds so simple. But i joined these groups and i hold these groups so that we can help each other. Remember who we really are so credibility then as. I'm writing this week in my book. I'm writing writing. I'm writing and all of a sudden. I start researching researching researching and you guys. I am going to be one of those authors. That actually will site in source. They come from a graduate school background or research background. I certainly did not invent every idea. I think of and so i've already talked with my book. Coach who is also my editor content editor red line editor. And we've talked about this research and so every once in a while. I'm you know i'm on this little subject nelson. I start. Researching are start researching. And i start Searching and i'm writing. I'm writing and writing and i'm writing down the sources and then all of a sudden i was like why am researching this. I know this. I don't even need to research this. And and where i left off on friday morning was alison on your credibility. Right your process. Y'all especially if you are not brand new at what you are doing own your credibility. Take a moment. I think there are some exercises in coaching. That i've done before. Either as a coach has a client where you take a minute and you write down everything you've ever done in your whole life i will. I do remember richland. And i still think he teaches this to this day. Rich levin used to always say it doesn't matter if you're a high performing person in your brand new coach you're bringing so much credibility to the room if you're a stay at home mom who's never had a six and a half figure job you're bringing so much experience in credibility to the room. Steve chandler used to tell his executive clients when they would ask for his resume or his curriculum vitae. He said you're hiring a life coach. And if you're he's i'm alive coach if you're alive i can coach you now. That sounds flip it. I am as confident as that. The there is nobody will. There's people. I wouldn't coach. But that i could coach somebody really well. I have so many hours. I have so many wins. I have so many successes i have. So many failures have a vast array from the mystic energetic intuitive to strategic and everything in between and i have an uncanny ability to intuitively know what my client needs in the moment. It's like. I can almost hear their souls speaking on me a lot of time. I can hear their souls. Despite their words not to mention the classes the studying the reading the courses the graduate school education the psychology education. You know all the things that look good on paper. I know what i'm doing. And i'm one of the best in my field and you. What every day. I forget it and i bet you forget it too. I remember having a coaching call with about sixteen of my achievement level clients. These are people who've been in business self employed for fifteen to thirty plus years still in business. Frank survived like they're not gonna fail fifty if you've been self employed for fifteen years you're never going back you. You're not going to fail. And i remember asking that room. Hey i was talking to some of the growth people who are really struggling with doubt and i was wondering how many of you have ever felt doubt every single person. I said how many of you have felt doubt this week and every single person in that room raise their hands and so no matter how amazing we are. We can forget and so being in these rooms instead of having imposter syndrome. I'm so tired of as having imposter syndrome. Darling finished in ambitious woman. Listening to this podcast. Cleese set down imposter syndrome and pick up your well earned and will be credibility in two thousand twenty one and if there are areas where you want to become better or you feel like your credibility needs some muscle training then go learn put in the time in task. Put in time task right. So there's the things that we highly influential and credible app and maybe there are the things that we need to the that we need to grow. If you're credible at your service but not quite credible in getting clients go take classes. Go read books. Go talk with other high level. People figure out your branding figure out your messaging figure out your relationships figure out the language you want to use to support people in their buying decisions. There is nothing that i want. I won't figure out how to be absolutely credible outside and in. So i wanna leave you with that my personal lesson from my two thousand twenty mastermind with my coach and this year i am. I've actually taped that words. My computer i am. I am done forgetting that. I've got the credibility in this. I'm done you know. Maybe some people say dun shrinking. I don't need to play big. I just need to be me. And i am credible. My ambition has brought me to this moment. It's brought you. Your ambition has brought you to this moment my authenticity and when i started being my authentic self in business in the early two thousands was not pretty people did not like. It wasn't cool yet. It wasn't popular. But i also knew that i was called when i saw these leaders around the room. I was like something's missing. We need to have some kind of transparent leadership. And i have fumbled my way through. We've got this so the three reasons are the three lessons from this episode. Just to recap it. As i close out we rise and fall to the rooms. Were in number two. You independent strong mo fo women. You don't need us. You don't need a high level mastermind. You want it because you double down on yourself you give yourself a challenge to rise to and the third reason is to support hone and remind you of your credibility. Thanks guys for listening I'd love it if you would share this podcast. I would love it if you're not already on my email listed. Allison crowe dot com. You can sign up there for the field. Ferry guide in this was so fun. I had a referral couple of weeks ago. She's now a slowly and she joined a business. Planning class of won't tell your name. But i will tell you. This woman is sitting there. She has printed out later and she's she's an employment lawyer. She printed out my feel good fairy guide which i originally wrote in two thousand and thirteen but i rewrote it last year. And so not only does it have the field. Good guided also has a section on how to feel difficult feelings and this woman is telling me that this little. Pdf book was exactly what she needed to hear. And maybe it's exactly what you need to hear so if you already on my list and don't know where that copy is if you will send me an email i'll send us send it to you. I have loved to have it. I'd love to hear from you and finally the third thing would you should. If you got something from this podcast would you share it on social media. That's the other thing. I'm gonna own my credibility and i'm going to start asking for more help. I might be bad ass. But i can't do it alone can't do it without you. I don't wanna do it without you. I can't do it without you. But i don't wanna do without you. You guys make the so much fun. I so appreciate you listening. Yeah that's what i got.

You can get more details at four corner. Public arts dot o._r._g. <music> the city of joliet illinois is staking its downtown redevelopment plans not on retail condominiums or office projects. There's taking it on a courthouse. Chicago-based white in companies designed an open complex for for a new courthouse that includes thirty eight modern courtrooms and a ten story office tower enclosing a public space. The city hopes will be the anchor for re-energizing sizing the downtown business district. The white company courthouse designed has been recognized by the american institute of architects academy of architecture for justice. It's one of fifteen recipients nationally of the two thousand eighteen justice facilities review awards and only one of four to win a citation the highest honor to get a sense of what's is going on with the courthouse in joliet. We talked with kevin havens. Who's the executive vice. President and director of design at white and company about the new courthouse has project joliet illinois which doesn't get a whole lot of attention right. There's a new development there. It's costing a lot of money but it's not a live work play way. It's a coordinator. Tell us a little bit about how that happened. Well yeah. This was an exciting opportunity. <hes> the <hes> how many board lord of real county which resides juliet made a big decision and that was to not just provide new facilities for the the county court <hes> establishment but actually have it as an opportunity we think how development in downtown joliet my take place and what's kind of radical about that is typically <hes> it's commercial type projects or new businesses or residences that are kind of the <hes> <hes> the lead in converting old tire downtown's but in this case they actually had the vision that a civic building <hes> um my down payment if you will on changing of the entire urban experience so that was a great challenge should take on as we began. The project talk local little bit about the building. It's a modern courtrooms a ten story tower and a lot of public space <hes> how how is that going to help in in in the downtown area well <hes> it precepts the project was replacing an adjacent old courthouse from eighteen sixties this building sadly it was kind of <hes> you know. The poster child of everything gone wrong building designed its peak. It has kind of a punitive venture about it's <hes> there's really nothing transparent about the you know action of justice <hes> the new courthouse we asked by the judiciary duleep league's exactly the opposite. They wanted to have a very transparent expression <hes> that justice is equal access to it. It's on display and to make it a very friendly biting place rather than a very cold and off putting building so this building actually <hes> has been has been developed vertically article ten stories <hes> it's <hes> <hes> nearly three hundred seventy thousand square feet with thirty four rooms and what it does is it actually cre- green the public square <hes> in in front of the building kind of sheltered l shaped configuration of the building design and this is a square there really it's open for anyone isn't it so heavily landscaped with trees benches <hes> it's beautifully luminated and wants to be an attractor actor for people not something you want to stay away from whether we have porn business or not <hes> the urban square something that they wanted people to be attracted to and therefore for being the tractor for businesses restaurants shops to start develop kind of like <hes> you know radiating from the courthouse property <hes> the main lobby to the building is entirely sheets glasses two stories and it's kind of counterintuitive for secure building which actually it is very secure opera enjoy roy <hes> you can see inside and <hes> waiting there. You're waiting for an elevator up to a floor there as perspective juror lychee the jury assembly area or business with the court clerk. All these things are very open and an aunt display if you will nothing's really hidden behind closed doors. Even the vertical floors where the courts are staff <hes> the public waiting area enjoys a beautiful panorama looking looking north into downtown. You know you got to where they can relax and take a breather decompress with it before an xy the courthouse <hes> so this is a different way of thinking about about justice and it was very much based on the community perception of what this new place would be one and so <hes> how is it going <hes> i is the building up or when you project completion well it's in profit topped out at ten stories now under starting to sheet glass curtain wall and stone materials and it'll be opened <hes> at the end of twenty twenty open for business. It's projected rejected that they'll have over three thousand visitors per day. <hes> it's a lot but there's a lot of courtrooms of a lot of other agency business is to be done there with public defenders states attorneys and mention the county court clerk <hes> so there's a lot of all the agencies associated with the court administration administration for turnout scattered around downtown show we'll coalesce imbuing this singular structure and generates a lot of efficiency it does indeed and it also integrates a lot of potential business outside of the courthouse. These people need to eat <hes> they need transportation tation <hes> they might need access <hes> other offices for a private attorney somewhere in the area so it really becomes kind of injection life you've at least this is the vision of the county board into the downtown area so it's quite exciting. It's gonna ask you about <hes>. The the impact on local retail all is <hes> downtown joliet. <hes> thriving or is it. Has it been struggling economically. It's been sputtering. There's been some some attempts is to <hes> to get some things going <hes> they. They have a relatively new public library. That's been joliet. Junior college has actually open the culinary institute in downtown areas so there's kind of some small. It's you samples of the things that have been happening downtown to start to to spark <hes> of that return of retail and restaurant tourist. The courthouse project is clearly the biggest and we're hoping that it could be just enough to get things going wait and company was actually involved with an unrelated project. It's about two blocks away from the courthouse that actually actually it's an idiot affect on the downtown and that was an expansion to the old stork joliet central high school <hes> we put on a few years ago kgo eight <hes> the new students <hes> activity center and <hes> a component of that project was an atrium that connected the old historic landmark mark building to a new dining facility and kind of the unexpected result of that is that the space now is being rented almost every weekend by one community <hes> group after another told certain events and it's a splendid thing. A lot of people enjoy yet go to high school there. They really don't move away staying with them to to think about pedal. High school is actually being a magnet for their continued life. After after <hes> after congratulations really marvelous so these ingredients do in a very stealthy way i think the things that traditional mission of development of of of of retail and housing <hes> typically doesn't announce that these cultural institutions be ah education or in this case civic courthouse are also doing from a completely different direction. It's exciting to see that <hes> that <hes> that <music> synergy come together you know when the courthouse was completed others vision and these are not confirmed plans to the hope is that <hes> more consolidation consolidation will take place so there might be a new county governments that are <hes> that might even combine <hes> with the city government which right now are two different entities <hes> to actually take the place adjacent to the <hes> to the new courthouse by demolishing little courthouse and so it's fun to see at least the intent or the vision to not stop when this is done but to keep it rolling and to <hes> to keep injecting <hes> this kind of energy into the downtown area kevin havens is the executive vice president and director of design for white and company. He joined us from his office in chicago ago kevin. Thanks very much for taking the time to chat with us. Thank you so much pleasure. You're listening to the c._r._a. News hour from from state broadcast news dot com opportunity zone investments continued to be one of the most sought after sure topics in the commercial real estate world for information and you're about to get a masters level course in some of the tax issues surrounding opportunities zones from michael sanders. Michael is blank rome's lead partner in the firm's washington d._c. Office tax group he focuses focuses practice in the areas of taxation offering particular knowledge in matters affecting partnerships limited liability companies s. corporations real real estate and estate planning michaels a frequent speaker on opportunity fund legislation. He advises fund investors and real estate companies on the program requirements requirements and in this segment he provides some up-to-date guidance on some of the tax implications for partnerships planning to invest in opportunities zones michael. You are the lead partner for blank rome's tax group in the washington office and from your perspective there are a number of open tax issues with respect respect opportunity zones talk a little bit about what these are and what you think needs to be done to <hes> to fix these issues. <hes> thank you very much much. <hes> there are about four or five six really important issues <hes> that i wanna just touch on i <hes> <hes> the question of eligible gains <hes> and the regulations say eligible gains generally are capital game which is long long and short term gain short-term is pretty advantageous because otherwise it'd be taxable as ordinary income from actual ordine sailors change or any other gain that is required to be included in the taxpayers computation of capitol gain so you need to look at the k. one she received from the partnership and one of the items listed is unreal captured twelve fifty gain <hes> which relates to depreciation recapture and that is not ordinary income should not be ordinary ordinary income although it's not clear under the regulations on recaptured twelve fifteen is taxed at twenty five percent maximum capital gain in rate <hes> and so i would take a position that is ineligible game for purposes of taking advantage of how's the opportunities zone fund <hes> provision sort of related to that is these section twelve thirty one issue. Uh netting is required under the second trench netting that is of gains and losses che's and the determination of whether you have a net twelve thirty one gain is on the last day of the taxable year here so in effect it puts the taxpayer in the penalty box <hes> humorous reference <hes> wish because you have to wait till the end of the year to be able to take advantage of the opportunities zone provisions josh and this appears to apply to the partners individually but not at the partnership level so a determination maybe made on the last day as a taxable year which would trigger not hundred navy day period to invest <hes> and by the way that may impact on the seven year holding period in twenty nineteen because you're not going to be able unless you do it on december thirty first <hes> <hes> to take advantage of that seven year period of deferral <hes>. There's no optionality -ality here. You don't have a choice so let's say you <hes> <hes> major sale at the partnership level of a shopping center in april april of this year so you would like to reinvest but according to the regulations hundred eighty days won't start start you won't you'll have to wait until the netting can take place <hes> have to receive all your k- ones from other partnerships as well as your personal twelve thirty one games and you might not receive them until next april or may so so reinvestment maybe stalled <hes> which is not a good result and i would expect treasury to focus kosonen this at some point the thirty issue <hes> one that we need to look at today is the inconsistent treatment of gain after ten year period because it affects how we draft our documents <hes> the <hes> the real benefit benefit to an equity investor is when they sell their qualified opportunity fund interest directly so investor investor a. q. o f <hes> as taxes a partnership for example <hes> it's if he makes the same market value election upon the sale of the cool f- interest after ten years the effect will be to eliminate nate any gain upon the investors sailors change of a qualifying investment regardless of whether the investors used i <hes> the losses that had been generated due to depreciation and whether the investor receives leverage distributions from the during that ten year period that's great result but under these regulations second trench if the cure f- sells the assets <hes> then in determining <hes> as to which challengeable sheriff capital gain it has to look at schedule k one <hes> make sure that the disposition occurs after after the investor it's ten year holding period expires. This election will then only apply to capital gains allocated and not to amounts characterized as ordinary income such as depreciation recapture of twelve forty five assets fits <hes> so there's a difference and finally it appears that this election will only apply to gain from dispositions of assets by the q. o. f. itself and won't technically apply to gains recognized is by a q. Oh be qualified opportunities on business and it's unclear as to whether this is intentional but today that's the result another problem <hes> i also would like to take a minute or two to talk about planning purposes they comparison of ken thirty one <hes> treatment to opportunities zone tax benefits <hes> qualified opportunities zone property investments are not restricted to real estate. They're available to other businesses hedge funds for example. What ten thirty one <hes> is so limited. Pretend thirty one deferral can be permanent 'cause as a basis step up at the death while opportunities zones allow permanent step up that need to die if hell for ten years so there's a different sprint twist here <hes> there's also the opportunities zone option available for a busted ten thirty one transaction which itself would require an hour of discussion and opportunity zones may do a ten thirty one roll all over itself during the ten year period but the technical substantial improvement test would likely need to be satisfied based upon the property purchased <hes> why don't i take a few minutes and talk about the advantages of of leasing properties which ultimately benefit can benefit related parties. <hes> the least tangible property must be acquired under release after seven thirty. I twenty seven teens so it's a new lease. The lease is property does not need to meet that original use test or substantial improvement requirements but must be a market rate lease <hes> as related party <hes> which canal be <hes> treated favourably under these rules. It's a big set. No prepayments are allowed for more than twelve month period also <hes>. It's important to examine the terms of the lease. It's a term of the lease is too long. In that exceeds the useful life of the building it may be considered a purchase under the tax rules thereby triggering this substantial improvement requirement in order to be a curios ep or treaters sale between related parties and fail uh as to those assets be the an issue under these seventy percent test <hes> substantial test <hes> but keep in mind fine the longer the term of the lease the greater the value of the property which we focus on the potential appreciation which would be excluded from tax after the ten year hold anyhow <hes> it's important that improvements made by the seles see to the least tangible property should satisfy the original us test be be favorable purposes seventy percent test <hes> the improvements will revert to the feeless or at the end of the lease term <hes> active business talk about the triple net lease in land banking limitation <hes> the regulations provide that leasing real property used attractive is is treated as the act of conduct of a traitor your business but stipulate that it merely entering into where triple net lease is not considered an active trader business finishes potentially a problem because many industrial leases are triple net so the the you need leasing leasing activity that rises above what is merely a triple net lease you need advertising management operation <hes> in the new market tax credit area there there are favorable rules on generating gross income within three years but we don't have that here so <hes> you know you're going to meaningfully participate as some good language in the go zone on area notice two thousand six this seventy seven which should be helpful here <hes> as to the treatment of unimproved vacant land. Let me just say <hes> the the timing generally <hes> regarding original us turn some win. Depreciation begins when i placed in service <hes> one of the concerns in the regulations is requires an asset by acid determination as to <hes> <hes> substantial improvement not on an aggregate basis disappoint which <hes> can create problems but there is a favorable <hes> language that <hes> properties unused for an interrupted period say five years we'll be considered original us when acquired by the q._o._s. would be which is really favorable but but you gotta focus on land banking because that's a potential abuse i mean they don't want <hes> the basically property to be acquired and accumulated and held <hes> for development down the road <hes> so if the land is acquired with the expectation intention or view you not to improve by more than an insubstantial amount within thirty months there'll be a problem and they have not defined insubstantial stanchov another area i want to touch on is the <hes> kilos e b advantages of the two tier structure and taking advantage of the <hes> working capital safe harbor <hes> it it may be advantageous the cure west instead of investing in property itself to invest through a second tier kua z. He be subsidiary which may not be disregarded today and in that regard they can get the benefit of sixty fifty three percent qualifying acid rule as compared to the ninety percent cure us here and they it can take advantage of the thirty one month safe harbor which is a very attractive and now it's been expanded under these regulations sion's to include the development of trade or business in a qualified opportunity zone as well as the acquisition construction andrew into a substantial improvement of tangible property. It'll cover payroll inventory occupancy and so on secondly early exceeding thirty one month rule does not violate safe harbor if the delays attributable to waiting for government action shen <hes> which is not completed within the thirty one month period and the regulations also provide clarity a business may benefit for multiple overlapping with sequential applications of the working capital safe harbor so those are key issues that i see and i just wanted to summarize them for you michael what <hes> what's your sense about the <hes> open tax issues. Are they going to be resolved by a treasury or the i._r._s. Or how is that. How does that mechanism work. And what do you think think the outcome is going to be well. I don't expect that we're gonna see <hes> a third trunch of regulations. I think treasury has already pretty indicated that and it may be that after hearings and the receipt of comments that they finalize all of them at the same time. Hopefully they'll clean up out of these issues interesting. It's interesting to me that every time <hes> <hes> they publish <hes> what we see a more issues raised and as i've said a number of time it's at these he's tax conferences. The the brighter the more knowledgeable the tax lawyer is the more issues <hes> they they you see and create <hes> and so that's potentially a problem for the let's say the developer the businessman and <hes> the private equity fund they want answers so they can make some decisions and invest and it's slowing down because of the very issue so <hes> what what's the best advice that you're giving your clients about positioning themselves to to be on the right side of the regulations as they exist today. What i'm what i'm advising clients is. You can't wait for absolute clarity. <hes> i feel that if you're in good faith and and it will be anti-abuse royals at some point put if you're in good faith and <hes> don't try to game the system you can move so it <hes> and don't wait because it's critical to acquire the properties <hes> or <music> sensually moves the business sooner rather than later you wanna take advantage of those attractive properties located has resonated zones so we're gonna wait for perfection. You may never get there because the competition is going to be true so you got to be willing to step a poet and and also in advantage this point to do it in twenty nineteen to get the full seven year deferral michael sanders offers is the partner in charge of the taxation group at blank rome's blow offices in washington d._c.

Apartment building sales reached a record high last year according to a recent report word from jones lang lasalle in chicago. The properties trading hands aren't just located downtown. Some of the hottest markets for multifamily sales are south side neighborhoods like washington park south shore and hyde park according to chicago based in terror realty driving. Some of the demand is what enteric enteric goals coastal cash. That's east coast investors who are snapping up value add properties with cap rates that are in some cases double what they'd find in the new york <unk> area. We wanted to find out more about this so we got on the phone with jon. Morgan and david goss the co founders in partners in in tara to talk about what's going on in chicago in terms of the east coast investment so one of the things that you're seeing <hes> seems to be this phenomenon. You're calling coastal cash <hes> money from east coast investors who were looking at value add properties in chicago that offer them. Maybe a better opportunity than what they might find in the new york area. Tell us a little bit about what's going on the phenomenon. We've kind of seen over the last twenty four months is really been a change in our local local markets where most of the local buyers have been getting priced out whether you know east coast west coast money frankly out of the country <hes> money and invest awesome started flooding the chicago market and we've seen it kind of across all geographic locations in and around our marketplace so i would say in the last eighteen months months <hes> specifically i mean we have had competitive party's bidding against each other all frankly out of state <hes> investors that had have been previously transacted in the chicago land area and you know i think we don't see that continuing to slow anytime soon. It's really just about chasing yield up or otherwise the rising able to achieve in their current marketplace. So what are we talking about the indications. Are you talking about cap rates that are double what they might get new york correct. Yeah i mean that's naturally ben heck. I mean essentially what we continue to hear from them is <hes> you know the economics and the demographics the markets within all brooklyn bronx you know all of those markets or similar demographics and economics <hes> within the chicago land area. It's truly that they're buying at the cafes uh-huh generally above what they can cheat on in their local markets today so it's really driven cash from the lenders and from about indoor mark art what are some of the factors that make chicago first of all attractive to these investors besides the cap rates. It's an and secondly <hes>. What are some of the things that you're telling people to look for when they go into this market. I think one of the one of the big drivers has been you know. There's event some early on money again. Coming in from new york specifically mad they start chatting they start talking about what it's like to operate an apartment building no different than what they experienced ends ten fifteen years ago in their marketplace so as they start to hear that from other local about certain within new york based starts to chase and we have <hes> an time when you're selling and we had to new york family that kinda cross that one party saw that the other who ran across each other's house in their own marketplace they've started to wanna you know immediately. Try to get their offer and i try to lock down the properties and i think a lot of that has just it's been. It's been driven by their price out of their markets. You know there's just it's gotten so competitive within their as that's there is no necessary return. They're only taming appreciation in that market whereas here you know you can still achieve some cash flow and you got appreciation in our marketplace though so i think those two lineup to where investors are looking to come here rather than solely by an an appreciation basis within their marketplace today one of the things we're seeing a lot of there's almost a herd mentality taliban and you know pushed a little bit buy why proper marketing but like jon said the last building. We were selling two hundred and thirty a unit. We had several families from new york and they you know it's just like anything else. One hair is it and they all start following so it's kind of like a train and and you know we we articulate listening that john was talking about with san francisco buyer. We have several new york buyers. They just kinda follow each other and isreaeli israeli. We had an israeli right and i think one of the things you would ask john like what were one of the things that is bringing people to chicago his is i mean you hear all the negative stuff on the news but <hes> it's on the secondary because everybody that's in every city but one thing chicago has a lot of other cities don't have it the huge migration of younger people in <hes> we are losing population of older people but they're professional national young people with a lot of money. There's so many people moving in and whether it's just it turns people so the new people are coming in for the credit day. Okay stop in center city a push everybody else so there's just an increase the man arben all about the city. It's it's very similar to what we saw within the last last year new york people pushing further west into new jersey and now it seems like they're pushing really far west with what you're saying yeah yeah. The city is just getting filled and filled. <hes> you know the suburbs may be suffering somewhat but <hes> you know everybody just shifts over as a you know a constant stream of gentrification moving <hes> so everything but but everything even the bottom donovan being lifted up so that we don't really have as many like this seriously distress neighborhoods as we used to because there's a lot of money going in there and pick them up so especially see a benefit to video as a home yeah and again most of the neighborhoods where we're seeing this money come into their just outside of the central business attorney so i mean the reality of it you know you're coming from out of state or your proximity as you look kinda weird coming from on a live they wanna live in an affordable area just outside of this t._v._d. You know that's within driving distance of ten fifteen minutes left and i think that's really where we've seen. The focus and you know obviously as chicago continues to grow. Oh maybe not at the pace of the new york. It's still going to grow overtime so given the fact that there's all this interest now. How long do you think it's going to be before things sort of calm tom down or is it got a ways to go to run itself out yet. I think i think we have we have quite a ways to go. I mean if you look at where we are what previously had happened with relation to banks and lending. You know you're not seeing crazy. Lending people are coming in real money down real equity at the table not structured finance that otherwise or elaborate though darn corinne in the current cycle so based on what we're seeing you know. There's a a an abundance of senior in the marketplace what we're starting to see them. Both locally and nationally as all of the banks are actually taking the term of their their you know long doubts like a traditional local under might have done three three or five your money now those same lenders are offering five to ten year money which previously had to go to fannie freddie and other agencies to get but now it's available on a local bank base insult to me by that occurring in itself that stretches out the duration of the next cycle. I think we have several years of runway la before you start you don't frankly even a a flattening of the market and then you know i you know i think we're we're well away from any potential crash in the market cycle so <hes> some economists are seeing a bit of a slowdown across the overall economy over the next year or so <hes>. Do you have have any sense of whether your market is going to slow down or what are the things that concern you that you're keeping an eye on about the possibility of a slowdown that we always look at first absorption. I mean in chicagoland market. Absorption really haven't played a impact on the moore neighborhood areas where we do a lot m._r. brokerage <hes>. I think there's you know there's concerns over over some live classic kind of directly in the c._d. But at the same time i mean that product has been getting absorbed from salt. Concessions are still record lows in the chicago land area. We haven't started to see a whole lot of crete there. <hes> and i think the reality of it. Is you know these aged. These tertiary areas outside of the c._d. I mean ultimately. They can see their extremely low. The rents are still affordable and they're still the ability to get ranked rogue <hes> so i think a lot of those have lined up to where it their concerns haven't been there in our space and and i usually see that i mean the markets we have seen very andraos them <hes> senior that at this point that's has continued to keep kind of our industries. You've had a good values fan. Jon morgan and david goss our the founders and principals of inteiror realty in chicago. They he joined us from their car somewhere on a freeway in the windy city jonah david. Thanks for taking the time. We appreciate your perspective on the market. Thank you thank you thank you for the time appreciate thanks. You're listening to the cr news hour. I'm steve lebron. Artificial intelligence agents is starting to move into the commercial real estate industry and one of the leaders in the field is an israeli company called okapi spelled o k a._p._i. Okapi has a machine learning platform that helps major landlords think twenty five plus million square foot portfolios leo improve their net operating income by analyzing massive diverse sets of data and identifying operational improvements that generate revenue bolster stor leasing activity improve the tenant experience and reduce costs okapi is an israeli company and we spoke with maya gal who's a co founder and chief chief revenue officer of the company. She and her partner iris c don have expanded the company's work in the real estate industry into canada and the u._s. My thanks for joining us on the news hour very happy to be here so tell us a little bit about how you got started with okapi. You've got a an artificial intelligence platform that has the potential to help landlords improve their operating income and their overall tenant experience dance by looking at big data. How did you get started. And how did you move into commercial real estate with it. Actually ireson. I co-founded okapi. Our background was sanal business intelligence. We worked in that sphere for many many years. Bringing a visualization of data and we found that there is a very big <hes> lag in the way the current tools today they allow you to see what happened in the past but they don't support collective actions <hes> and there's really a very big <hes> abyss of data where organizations accumulate a large large amounts of data at early basis while we're speaking right now date has been through through accumulated in created but most of that data is just being thrown away <hes> it's <hes> rotting away in some in some warehouse or in some files and it's not being being put to good use and the seeing that gap we co. We thought what is the value that <unk> kathy can bring to the world and we actually started implementing okapi in manufacturing manufacturing area where there's a lot of data data coming in from sensors from sheen's data's coming in from sensors <hes> <hes> from from a lot of different parameters in the manufacturing and data existing i._t. Systems and we had a lot of success there <hes> and we started to think of what other other applications this could have an we learnt came across the sierra business that was about three years ago and we fell in love with it <hes> <hes> a huge problem of data lots of exists landlords store lot lot of data but they don't use it in order to create a proactive notifications occasions and our first customer quadrille which which kind of <hes> explained to us that manufacturing in real estate are not that different <hes>. There's there's a large operation. There's a lot of data a lot of people in the field making day to day alien decisions without any support of any systems and joined during that application efforts application saw great fit and we've been enjoying great success ever since so how does it work with real estate data what kinds of of inputs are you using and what kinds of analysis do you deliver to clients <hes> and how does that help them and while a lot of organizations as i said collect the data the data could either be data coming in from business systems like m._r._i. B._t._s. yard ciardi lots of different i._t. Systems <hes> data could be coming in from sensors. We check sensors occupancy sensors different types of sensors the building <hes> and data could be external data it could be whether data could be market data location based data. <hes> there are a lot of types of data sources that can help l. A. landlords understand how they can improve their and why in okapi is able to connect to those data sources run very complex algorithms rhythms in the back end and then in the front and create simple notifications that are sent to asset management groups property management groups engineering teams with proactive notifications that incites the letting them know how they can improve the bottom line so for example if you're gathering data from <hes> h vac sensors building <hes> monitoring <hes> or the algorithms already built or do you have to customize them for each client so in okapis algorithms are already redeveloped. We have a very strong engine. The knows how to connect to different types of sources that they could be leasing data in b._t._s. It could be a work order system. They are in an angus or it could be a financial data could be censor data a we are agnostic of this system or algorithms are able to run through that data on and find in improvements in real time and create those into implications the algorithms algorithms look for anomalies in the data they look for root causes for problems. They look for predictions and they really helped uncover. What is an activist action that i can take in order for this not to be like a very theoretical statement. I can give some examples will become more practical. Please so our customers are looking for a way to increase income from there just in assets they have a lot of different tenants and they won't understand what what are the opportunities for them to get to increase the income from those tenants so <hes> okapi might be running the different system than find for example a potential to offer a larger space for ten due to higher occupancy. They could be found from understanding the number of people that actually walked the carousel every morning. <hes> could be understood from external data could be collected about that tenant or even <hes> from sensor data that we have <hes> or for work order just later so it doesn't really matter what type of sources you have okapis able to into them and find in that data and opportunity to increase a <hes> to increase the income another example might be finding an anomaly in the way that your tenants by parking and and find offers or places where you can offer your tenants more parking spaces so there was a lot of hidden opportunities inside the data to increase the income. What okapi desert has it crunches. Very large data sets that already existed already have on and creates. Those are the foundations in playtex where people were not. They assigned but they need to know what they need to do. So in the commercial real estate sector you launched initially in canada and you're now moving into the u._s. What kinds of for feedback are you hearing from commercial real estate clients or prospective clients in the us about using the service well as you <unk> said when you started in <hes> canada we actually started with some large landlords that have portfolios both in canada and in the states so we're not brand new due to the states working with customers like oxford properties were mental reno who have presence in both canada and nited states <hes> currently <hes> starting our work secured new york. We're focused on finding the large landlords who can value from okapi. We already have a few of them that we've started piloting our platform. We're getting great the feedback for the value that the system can bring because i think there's a lot of noise in the proper cloth seen there's a lot of startups out there but most of them are focused his either on the investment side or on solving very specific questions landlords have do i use my energy to the best possible way that is a silent solution but they're not a lot of solutions where we haven't run into solutions that are focused on. How do i do it improvement of the n._y. Across the board how do i operate my buildings better header increase attendance experience while increasing income and reducing the costs so in that sphere in that <hes> area we were getting a good feedback that we're very are you now in the in the output that you deliver to clients as it in a form of a dashboard or is it a report. How do they look at the analysis that to provide. That's a great question. Our customers are the front line employees. They're not people sitting behind a desk and analyzing data on people people who are running asset management teams people running problems propertymanagement buildings people giving the day to day service so these people are on the ground they will consume okapi notifications even through a mobile app that will click and they will say having you notification they will that notification and they will get something that they need to do right now that will help them know more about the tenant about the team about a specific asset that is on the ground that they can improve on so most of our customers use okapi through them allow up there is of course a web version where i can see accumulation of all indications are received in trends over time and other things. He's like that's <hes> but he kept he really meant to be a real time solution requirement it used by people as they're doing their day to day job. My goal is is the co founder and chief revenue officer of oh copy. You can get more information at their website. O k a p. I dot a. i. Maya thanks for joining us today.

Self-Leadership

"This is authentic ambitious with allison crowe. I'm alison pro your coast and i'm an intuitive life and business coach helping authentic and ambitious women keep the soul and success in their life and work through deep coaching savvy business strategy and connected community. This podcast is here to help. Bring insight awareness and action to your authentic and ambitious life. Let's do this. I i'm live. Hey hey hey. This is a live recording of authentic ambitious episode. Number one thirty one so we're recording it two weeks before it will go live and some days. I like to record podcast. Nice in private and somebody's days. I like to public and today i wanna do it in public partially because look at look at doral. So if you're listening on the podcasts. Let me just described this for you. I do have new glasses that i love and adore or so cute. Got them at glasses. Usa for way less expensive than here at my optometrist's number two. I've been really trying to plump up puke lipstick These things are about self leadership. We'll get that in a second. This really enjoying the femininity of pink lipstick. And then today. I am wearing giants dangling. Rings by lindsey links l. y. in x and I feel a little sassy crazy. 'cause i was supposed to record this yesterday at i did not feel sassy me from crappy too. Sassy was myself leadership so this is actually the topic that was on hand and i think i had to have a real life experiences to be able to talk to you about self leadership today. I've got a couple of good stories. I've got some components of self leadership and let's just start so this is episode number one thirty one self leadership with allison crowe self leadership. The definition of self leadership is the practice of intentionally influencing your thinking feelings and actions towards your objections. I work with self leaders. And i am a self leader. South leaders master self discovery. They don't just master they own and accept responsibility for. I think that's even better than master so self leaders own and accept responsibility for self discovery self acceptance self management self growth in cultivation their owners who take responsibility now this does not mean they are not at effect in the world right. like sometimes circumstances. Don't feel so hot but the way they meet themselves and then grow through. That is very cultivated. An intentional there is a primary What's the word. There is a primary in coaching. I always call it the number one rule of coaching. I don't know that that's the correct language. The has but in see ti the the premise is. The client is naturally creative. Resourceful and whole client is naturally creative resourceful in hall and so there are a couple of stories that have come up over the last few years. I can think of three quinn. Said i'm gonna tell you the first one is of my client my client my friend and colleague john morgan. This is a public story shared a before and a couple years ago Jon morgan actually called me for some coaching. He wanted to create a three hundred thousand dollars cash so that he could spend half of that working at the time. This was the fee. It's i don't think it is anymore. With steve partisan and so we did some coaching around that and we also talked about he. He mentioned that when he wanted to hire st. Partisan who at the time is one hundred fifty thousand dollars upfront payment plan. Pay that up front and his wife and said what if you die mean. What if he dies. What steve dies and my friend. John said that i will still fly out to his office every single week i will read his journals and i will read his journals than i will sit in the energy of office and i will read the books. He's read. I will take responsibility for getting one hundred fifty thousand dollars more and more value out of this cushing relationship than it was just so powerful. I've never forgotten that was many years ago Another similar story is with my past coach. Rich slippin i worked with him for three or four or five years In the first half of the two thousand ten's and i had done three different group programs with him. The first two were really fun and they were very exciting and they felt really good in the third one was miserable and i was sitting with rich at a bar after wannabes event says he was like. I had just finished third small group coaching and he was like. So how did you find the blah blah blah. Salon is what he called at the time. Like i hate it and he looked at me like horrified. He got it later. But i said i hate it but i got exactly what i needed out of it. The story number two and he got he got that i did have to like it to grow from it and i could have blamed him. I can blame him. But i didn't blame him. Because i'm a self leader motherfucker settled. I actually spoke about this recently. On my coaches podcast. My coaches tearing amend her podcast. I think is either the bold leadership revolution or it may be bold money revolution and i can't remember what the towel is. Been pretty sure we talked about ownership. And i'm an owner. I take a lot of ownership as much as i like to judge in blame. I take a lot of ownership and You know. I i never i never put even though i hired by coach and pay her a lot of money. I don't ever put responsibility on her to do anything. Other than hold the container and some of my coaches have been freaked out in the past at first not completely that all i need is them to hold the container in witness me. 'cause sometimes just talking out loud. I get exactly what i need. I trust myself then. The final story. I wanna tell you is about a client who recently got a new client and this new client hired her and wanted her to teach her a certain leadership skill like not a little later. Skip ship skill a big leadership skill and you found herself like oh how can i please his client. Let me get this together. And when we discussed it she came to the knowledge that she was stealing her clients self leadership by solving his problems for him and so those quick for stories right. She's like oh and i was like. Yeah you're taking away his power so as coaches it is our job to hold the space and remind our clients as as I told one of my clients early on real estate coaching. I said i'm asking you to be great because you hired me to and i saw her is great. See your clients your children. Please see your children as capable and so self leadership leading of the self. Managing our self discovery are self awareness or self acceptance are self management are self growth are cultivation. Is one of the best gifts that you can give yourself now. Some people maybe like natural at this or maybe trail. I dunno like you could be conditioned into thinking this way. I think i had a lot of help being conditioned into a problem solver and so when i have a problem in my own life i like to move beyond it. And if it's not necessarily a skill you can move into learning about self leadership so we all know that i'm actually in the south impersonal development world aka self leadership right. I don't my clients. Don't hire me to do work for them. They hire me. The brings sometimes might think. Oh alison will do this for me and really what i'm doing is holding the space in asking the questions and sometimes poking with my poker so that they come to their answers now i do happen to have a lot of teacher needs to sometimes. I'm teaching from wisdom. That i lay on the table. Self leadership is the solution to anything difficult that we go through. Now let me explain a few. Other things I have a set of notes here. Been writing all these things down. They're not necessarily order. And i'm going to give them to you in order anyways. So the first thing is i noticed. Are y'all take love to talk. You know. I love tiktok. Because i don't feel compelled to create content there. I like to enjoy it. And you know what. I've learned some really neat things on tiktok and i do have clients that do us tiktok to create clients and create content there. But what are the things i noticed about. Tiktok and youtube is that there are people especially fifteen year old kids. Maybe even younger kids teaching a whole lot of how to. I've seen teenagers teaching on tiktok. How the bill dropped shipping business to make one hundred twenty dollars so there are these these talk kids that can teach you how to do anything but what. I have found fifteen. Years of coaching and seventeen years of self-employment is that the how to is never the answer and in fact self leaders rarely ask how to questions because they know they can find it at the end of a google search and yet so often. What we're being sold is how to. I love giving tips. I love giving like sales language. That helps people move things forward. I love giving strategic ideas. That is a part of my coaching. And yet if i were not competent in those areas so i actually remember. There was one point in my coaching career. Where i coached the owner of an automotive repair shop and his three salesmanship. I don't know anything about running an automotive shop but my job wasn't to teach them how to run a note of run building automotive shop. My job was to remind them who they are up. Cultivate their self leadership their skills and their willingness to do what they know how to do to grow a bill to automotive shop. But i think a lotta times. The power gets fuzzy. We wanna take the power away from our clients by doing all the work for that whole or if we're not in the coach client scenario. We wanna project all the excuses in problems outside of ourselves instead of taking ownership and responsibility. Here's a few not so. I've written down an own your attitude and your effort own your healing own. Your growth. Like what happens if we you know. Many of you listening are already in my audience or not new to the owner mindset versus the victim mind set and it is so easy to get in the world projection in instead of only right or we own without compassion. I don't want you guys to own this shit without being compassionate with yourself so here are a few things i wrote down about self leadership. Self leaders have a passion and intention for growth. Self leaders have a vision. They see possibility and create objectives. So it could be goal can be emotional objectives. They want progress. Not because they're not enough but because they they know they're here to grow so they see have vision in see possibility in objectives for the future and self leaders. Meet the now with practicality incompassion so self leaders don't actually bypass the present moment they don't spend too much time looking act they certainly don't spend time looking back as a victim whining and complaining in boohoo where they boo is in the present moment when they're meeting difficult emotions self leaders know how to meet difficult emotions with compassion and kindness and then they practically move forward self leaders now while they may do all these things self discovery self acceptance self management self growth self cultivation. They also are willing to get appropriate self leaders get support cultivate mind environment and team that supports the whole self leader does not mean overly independent motherfucker not mean over function. Self who leader means cultivating mind environment and team that supports the whole self leaders are also willing to do boring mundane and hard. I just had an amazing one on one. Coaching conversation with somebody who has created has has a goal had a goal last year. had a goal Did all the work for the goal and sat on. It didn't offer it to the world and we talked about. Why might that be and the reality is pretty much everything in anything. I'm off kilter around or blocked around or my clients are is an unwillingness to feel discomfort. We would rather have comfort ease and fun than do discomfort and in the spiritual law attraction. World's somehow we thought everything needed to be easy. We've got everything needed to be fun. Just because it's not fun doesn't mean it's not in alignment just because it's boring doesn't mean it's not flow and just because it makes you uncomfortable does not mean. It's not alignment so self leaders are willing to chop wood carry. Water self leaders don't need glitter and fireworks show and big sales to sustain them. They know that the mundane daily do sustained so my coaching program. I decided for myself. Y'all heard me talk about habits. I decided for myself that i would be tracking some habits in somebody asked. How did you decide but abbots detract while item tracking three really boring personal habits and three really boring professional habits. It is really attract money electric of money. I don't need to track many tracking. Money doesn't make me more many tracking they activities that make many which are boring. Makes me more money tracking. My weight. doesn't make me lose weight or gain weight tracking what i eat. Although that's not on my list of things the things that i am tracking our reading everyday writing every day walking every day that i have new contact love on a existing contact and make an ask offer invite. Those are the six things. I'm tracking not real exciting. They don't make great instagram post. Right but self leaders are willing to chop wood carry water self leaders make the best positional leaders. Positional leaders can be given a position without having any leadership qualities realised that her right and so some of you may have given yourself a position if you haven't been given it by a company in working for a company. A lot of my people work for themselves so a lot of people have promoted themselves to ceo of their small business but a positional leader without self leadership is doomed to fail or piss everybody off along the way and so self leaders make the best positional leaders. So if you're in a position and not getting the results that you want. Then perhaps it's time to really hone in on how you are developing yourself and i'm not just talking your skills right so a lot of times. It goes back to this one person. This client like her her her client was like i'm hiring you to help me be this positional leader. And she was gathering. All the to do's of a traditional position and i guarantee you that's not what that client needs. He thinks he needs to how to you. Think you need the certification. And i'm not saying certifications are bad because they're not people ask me all the time. Should i get certified as a coach. I get certified as that. Should i go back and get my degree. Get all of which will not be easy. And will it really. Why do you want the certification at this point mark. My words there is. I would love to have my beloved. For some of the things i've done to count towards my phd. But unless i really wanna go through that there's no reason to get the position of the phd. What's what's my why right. And so i can know not invest getting my phd through traditional. Means but i can continue my study. I don't know if that distinction is coming across correctly there are things i would like to learn and perhaps some day it will be in that container but when we look are we getting it so that we feel credible right. Are we getting something. Are we getting a certification or another degree so that we feel credible. Are we getting it because we actually want to learn the material okay. South later said. Let me see if there's anything else i have one here. I'm sure there is let me take a breast. Why am i talking to you about six self leadership. I'm cultivator of my life. I am the gardener of my life. I am certainly affected. If if we use the guard analogy there are certain times that the weather disrupts my garden. There are times when i feel flooded out. There are times when i feel soggy wet depressed but itself leader doesn't sit in the soggy. A self leader meets themselves where they are with compassion and then begins to lovingly and intellectually assess the situation and see what needs to be tended to and then takes action and so part of this yes is independence and self reliance part of. This is not seeking the opinion of others. When it's not the opinion you need and part of it is getting help when you need help so i just wanted to pop on. Give you a little A little thoughts to think in a little feels to feel about self leadership as we start february of two thousand twenty one. This podcast will come out the day after my forty nine per day. I'm not so much thinking about what. I want to do or accomplish in my business because i have found that in seventeen years does never lineup with timelines. But when i focus on the woman. I'm becoming the problems. Might feature selfish solving myself now with grace practicality and wisdom and move forward right now i ended up creating anything and everything i want and so with that. Let me tell you about. I'm starting to have conversations with achievement level leaders and business owners so when i say achievement just for the sake of ease were saying have created over one hundred thousand dollars of income working for themselves.

They all own at least one business. Some of them own three businesses. Some of them own two businesses a couple of amount to businesses Some of the things. They're doing a lot of these. These clients are not necessarily growing but some of them are shifting audience. Some are leaving one business behind selling a business Some of them are are doing some of the outer work of creating more time for themselves in building teams some of them have teams so we are not. We don't really talk about brand new. Like how how to do. Business owner problems in this mastermind achievement level mastermind for women in business for awhile with a history of success. And now you are at the place where you want your hustle to be guided by sustainability soul fullness and your spark so that's why it's called spark and hustle so if you're interested in the mastermind i am setting up calls right now For application calls only have having application.

He's gonna kill me guy welcoming time to free show this week joining us. North philip sexton mike johnson and our host three that is from album called into the purple valley. Rock shooter came out in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy one. And it was buddy. Mine is wanting played that thing about every other day. So i got to know the album extremely well because it It was either that or joni mitchell. Three hour play all the time. He didn't like the grateful dead which everybody else did on on that hall that's he. Raccoon has been on lots of people's albums he's he's not only a solo performer. But he's been a very big time session man on on numerous people's albums that were out in california. You've probably earn lot and he was Boy vista social club. I think that's exactly right. Yeah also our movie called paris texas and That had harry dean stanton in the lovely nostalgic kinski who was posed holding onto the python. All right Inflation state high in july as the economy rebounded. Okay they say that it's rebounded but it's from a low base. I mean i went to a movie last night. I went to see this movie called stillwater. With matt damon. I was the only person in the theater and probably one of three people in the entire complex. So this was the one out in brandon crossing. I you say. The economy's really booming. I don't believe it for a minute but you know you can't get cars. Go drive by a These car lots right now. Go go look at the toyota place or or any of them. They got like five cars on the lot. I mean you know. How's the economy booming when you can't get inventory to make sales which actually makes the economy boom walk out here in front of our office. I mean it's it's like they're in any anybody out there and now you go to a place like nashville. It's nuts indianapolis. A lot. More activity You know so. It's it's kinda catches catch. Can some of these smaller towns. Georgetown tearing it up you know every little But i don't know that the economy is going strong everywhere. I think it's it's definitely in certain sectors and definitely not in other sectors. I mean you look at The movie chain. Amc's their earnings were out in. You know they're having a hard time. Getting people to come in you know went nuts. I mean that's just so divorced from reality. What happened with with their stock. You look at You know sh streaming platforms actually over the last quarter. As you've had some reopening i think net flicks is They were having some trouble on the growth on the streaming side But you know that's coming off of massive growth from last year and probably the same will hold true with disney on their streaming platform. But you look at movie theaters. It's very sector-specific. They were having problems before you. At retail I mean a lot of these shopping centers around around town. You know that were bowman. Ten years ago. Earth massive vacancies The retail is has been in an apocalypse And this is kind of a death nail but you look at things like costco amazon. You know the the the big have gotten bigger and they've gotten more profitable because technology So i mean the thing with costco was for a long time. You know they. They sell at cost. And they make their profit off the Membership membership. I know i. Their prices are good But you know they. They were ahead of the curve on the online shopping Yeah but their marketing stuff up. And don't don't give me that. Oh yeah yeah and charging you don't shop there right. It's a great thing. Yeah one of the main fear. Is that people have had is that you know prices of certain goods have gone up quite a bit so a lot of You know we know. Lumber prices jumped up quite a lot so certain home improvement products had become more expensive food. Prices have gone up Crude oil prices have gone up so gasoline prices have gone up as a result So one of the concerns has been that this is the new trend and prices are going to keep increasing In other words inflation as measured by the consumer price index which is a basket of goods and services is going to start increasing but What this article talks about is that yes Inflation is high. But it's only high when you measure it From a relative to this time last year and many look at inflation in the month of july relative to the month of june inflation is actually dropped So prices of goods Starting to normalize Usca prices are slowly starting to Decline and Some of these supply bottlenecks starting to To normalize so The main point is that yes. Inflation figures seem high but inflation. Is it seems that. It's fleeting because as things normalize prices are dropping. I'll give you an example. This is sort of a small slice of the economy but i liked to shoot sporting clays so shotgun shells that were number. Eight shot where maybe even a month month and a half two months ago. Impossible to locate. Couldn't find them now. What i'm hearing is everybody's got him you know and it looked like you. That would be that way for maybe a year or even longer you know i mean i'm told of somebody told me the other day said you can't find treated fence post well. I found a bunch of it this afternoon. And you know it's so people say these anecdotal things about oh this you know. It's like a self thing anytime. Gasoline goes to three bucks a gallon. Everybody says it's going to four and next thing you know it's a to fifty because Seems to me what happens. Is the higher prices especially in commodities anything commodity related. The higher price is kinda pull supply out. Everybody's cutting their timber right now you know. That's got timber. Oh hit the high price. Sell your house right now. Is the time to sell that. Always collapses on you in my experience right that always fades out on you so commodity bubble where there'd be houses oil timber food the food maybe separate because it's tied more to add commodities which they have their own kind of right Way of behaving commodities. You know there is a big factor and that's really hard to control her By other commodities Especially crude oil You know the supplies out there. It used to be people that we had peak supply and Then prices would just keep going up but just over the last Fifteen years we've seen that even more supply has come on because of technological forces So you know as you said that once prices go up More supply comes on and Some of these things are distorted because of covered by. that seems to be normalizing lonzo. I mean if you have fewer cars being so it seems to me that you would have fewer miles being driven that that would lower the price of gasoline. Maybe not at this point. I don't know it could be that. The used cars are disdaining service longer but yene with gasoline. It's also the supply of crude has been curtailed By opec in response to it and at the same time Us supply has declined because Shared produces just not spending on increasing production. Okay the baby boomers. Biggest financial risk cognitive decline fund sellers including vanguard infidelity and brokerage firm schwab have developed sophisticated systems to watch for telltale signs. We've we've experienced this with the clients. Anybody who gets older knows that These kinds of things can occur. You know one of the things they were saying is one hundred count backwards hundred hundred five. That's backwards isn't it. Yeah go ahead now. This is in finance sometimes some of the topics that you talk about. People don't like talk about you know one thing that you have to address. Is you know death You have to address you know cognitive decline. It's one of those topics that people don't like to talk about but it's a real risk that needs to be discussed and addressed and people need to be aware of without giving any names We had a client that We knew had some issues we didn't know was that he had another camp. It was significant Not with us. And i think it was a bank account that he could write. Checks on and Is a significant account and he Basically was taken advantage of by people who preyed upon him and essentially exhausted that account By sending them checks for. I'm not sure what large amounts of money and it was. The it was just scammers Asking for money and you know just they found a not a kind hearted man very nice guy. He was always so sweet when we came in when he came in here. We didn't know he had this other account right. We would've said something if we had Been aware of it right. So when when The some interesting statistics. I so of you just a minute here. It's right here. So between ages fifty seven and seventy five. The boomers Control half of the estimated fifty trillion in us household financial assets. Which is you know. Roughly twenty five twenty six trillion dollars. Now that's a lot of money. This is the key part right here though. Roughly a quarter of that or six and a half trillion is invested in. Do it yourself funds or the. The person is self managing the portfolio. Now we have the gentleman. You're talking about He was a good investor. he was When he was younger And as time goes on just as your your physical body wears down so does your mental capacity in varying degrees it could be in terms of concentration it could be in terms of Critical thinking We've talked on here a lot about A getting into a vacuum of information where you have an idea of how something is or how something should be and what you do is a lot of people. Reinforce that by listening to only things that reinforce that bias. That's very dangerous When you're talking f- Finance this was. This was interesting as well. So the rate for mild cognitive decline and dementia rise from a combined twelve percent for ages. Seventy two seventy four to forty five percent for those ages eighty to eighty four and even mild cognitive decline can significantly impact your financial capacity your ability to to do things now. We're painting with a broad brush here but we've seen this essay. We we as a firm have seen this play out in real life. So what can investors due to to help stem. This one is communication. You know have relationships with you know you're doing it yourself. Okay well let your family in on it. Let them know you need to have more than one set is on it Obviously what we do. We are that relationship with our clients We're that intermediary that gome that go-between And we can serve as kind of a an intermediary between generations of family. We can spur these discussions where somebody has done extremely well over their life. Saved invested have good portfolio But then it comes a time when physically mentally They're just not able to do it anymore. That's where we can step in and help on the investments we can also bring in if the client wants us to you know other family members to discuss but it's it all so much of this can be remedied by having that relationship that other set of is accountability. I think that People are weird about money. I'm that way too. I mean we're all list little strange at times about it You have it in your mind how you're doing things and sometimes you get It's hard to put money at risk when you when you think of money in a checking account versus invested in equities. Let's two different kinds of money. You know that's not cash money anymore. It's it's money that you would have to sell something to get to it and it goes in a different slot in your mind and people who manage money just by themselves are doing it with a committee of one. Yep i used to do that with all my thing. And then i'll let you guys take over my ira and it's actually going up. A i think as opposed to what you were saying you know. There's certain things in people's lives that they you they don't like to go down that road on i. I think about You know people when they start talking about a wheel. That's that's thinking about death so they put it off and put it off until the oh crap moment hits and like oh. There's a lot of people out there that you know. Okay we'd better get this stuff. Put together You know and i think with this. You know the biggest thing you can do is because with cognitive decline when it starts first off it doesn't stop second off it can happen very very rapidly You know and you wanna be in a position to make decisions and build that relationship as early as possible while you still fully have function and and logical reasoning behind things. Here's the other thing you look at The different tools that are out there. Now you look at how easy it is. You know if somebody's self managing apps little robin hood you know how easy it is to set up margin on an account you know so you can have somebody that's been you know kind of a middle of the road balanced investor long period of time. And you start having these cognitive issues and boom. They're in the establish margin. They get into riskier things. I mean that can happen easy because the technology is there and it's available. I wonder how many people were. Somebody's managing their account. Use use margin versus somebody doing it themselves. Well i bet it's ninety percent people doing it themselves versus to my manager. And that's another thing too. You have to be very very cognizant of who you're picking a manager your money and you have to have time to develop that relationship. Because i mean i hate to say it but there are bad apples in the basket. You know there are people out there that take advantage of client money to and that's where you have to as early as possible. Find a person developer relationship and build that trust. Hey how many credit cards are in your wallet.

Guitar is just a regular electric guitar with an open or something that usually when they have a slide not tuned to the regular thing on guitar. Right sometimes it depends most of the time. It's an open tuning threatening. Well you're doing a slide capable or so because you don't push down with the slide. It wouldn't be threatened. Goes above the fritz. Anyway all right when money is no object. Okay sure using credit card is easy but paying with invisible money make saving harder and spinning easier. Well i'll tell you for dag on sure that's true right. People behave differently when they saved and spent cold hard cash. Now this really leads to discussion about money itself. Which in many ways has been morphing for the forty plus years. I've been in this business. Money has gotten faster in a sense. Cheaper is not considered Sort of this sacrosanct thing as much as it once was you know we hear about a trillion dollar quote infrastructure bill which it's not really a trillion dollars in old timey money and it's probably not even intrastructure when you get right down to it. It's but The thing of it is Neil ferguson wrote a book called the ascent of money and money is very much in everything in our society. More ubiquitous in many ways and more things are charged for than ever were before yet it seems to have less value or less Respect if you will so thought this would be an interesting discussion. Because what this articles making a case For physical cash Talks about you know when you used to when you would save you put it in a piggy bank or you know you get that you there's a physical You know you hear the money. Go into the bank. You have your physical. It was physical When you took money out of the piggy bank as a kid you had to break the piggy bank or open the piggy bank. Do something so when you spent cash. You're actually parting with a physical objects so while you get the media gratification of whatever you're buying there's also that immediate feeling of loss that you're giving something and it talks about Even the cat ringing the register ring in the cash register. There's a physical aspect to that. You see it go down the old fashioned cash registers. You hear that ringing of the register. So he's making the point that it's harder to save because it's easier to spend in today's environment and that is true But to the counterpoint. Of that i think what comes with that is he. He used the example of tollroad us to and you're driving. Boom you put fifty cents or whatever was at the time in a toll toll booth going through you stop you put fifty cents in you know you spent fifty cents and then you get going again. He uses the example of lived kentucky of a lot more expensive appease he Like fifteen bucks. Yeah but he used example of ez pass which is now where you just. You don't stop you just go. And let's say charges a dollar fifty or whatever it is when you go in through. Well you don't know what you just spent now but how much more commerce and. How much quicker are things done. Because of that. So before you're driving at sixty you had to stop. Put the money in go and then speed up again so you had this. Go stop event now. It's just sixty miles an hour. Boom you draft through you paid. But it's you're you're going stuff is happening quicker. I'll give you an example. That's happened really in the last fifteen years. Sticking your credit card in the gas pump at the gas station used to be you always had to go inside and pay you would And there was that he had dr offs because of the fact that the it was kind of an honor system from pumping the gas to walking in and paying people would get free gas and drive off. You can't do that now. You cannot get free gas without going into the thing and they still want your credit card to hold it and if it's got a slot on their own dispense gas. You put your credit card in there. The clark inside the store doesn't have to deal with selling you the gas running your credit card. She can sell more lottery tickets which we know is really profitable right or whatever. She of the more reecey cups. Yeah but she doesn't have to sell gasoline he or she and so it's just it's speeded things up i. It's it's sped things up. It's made it more efficient You look at even taking it a step further you know the way. Stocks are held now versus stock certificate or bonds had physical bonds and. You're talking about before clipping coupons from bonds i had a client once again real remain. Nameless this gentleman liked by municipal bonds. He had a lock box right over here at the bank. Next door to us. It was the largest lock box. They had He had a number of bearer bonds in that lock box. When you sold him some bonds you had to bring the bonds down there and meet him. You can reduce your auto loan rate with uk federal credit union. We offer low auto loan rates. So that you could refinance and earn a one percent cash rebate on the amount finance.

Uk fc dot org federally insured by ncua at the back. He didn't want him in his office because he didn't want to risk having to take them from his office to the bank and potentially losing them. Having somebody pull a gun honesty lumber whatever no one that he had those bonds he would meet you at the bank. He would pay you for the bonds right. You check then in there on if it if you didn't have the bonds by settlement day. He had a problem back then. Settlement was t plus five. So you usually have a chance to get the bonds by settlement day. So you know. And that's how i did. And then he would write them down this book and he kept him in his Lock box and what. I'd say to the person writing the article. You know embrace the technology that's available now. Yes it's true it's easier to spend. It's also easier to save. If you embrace the technology you look at auto contributions to 401k's for three bs retirement plans. Ira's roth ira's investment accounts. It's very very easy to set up a recurring contribution to those right. If you embrace it the in any. If you're if it's physical electron ick. It all requires discipline either way. You go so embraced. The technology set up everything that you can on auto pay auto contribution and it when it's autopilot. You don't have to think about it every single time and it just happens. Always your cognition holds out. Yes it when i say auto. I don't mean the investments because if it's just on Autopilot on on the investments. Then you're asking for problems. What if you're just dollar cost. Averaging into a mutual fund though well it depends on depends on number things how old you are. If it's you know a 401k Four zero three b where you have the employer match well it's gonna be a mutual fund And but you need. That's going to be autopilot. That'll be autopilot. But you can still direct it to some extent but the autopilot portion is contribution. So he he's making the point on the cash itself. You know how someone treats the money that's coming in is how how they save at how they spend it With technology you can keep more of your money and actually get work in compounding on talk about the the piggy-bank thing and you know breaking the piggy bank. And i think tom in the in the first segment said something rather interesting that i think goes with us too in that if you start auto contribution or something and you start a retirement account and saving for retirement but then you put some effort into either a Investment selection or be adviser selection. Then it represents something very similar in that you talked about you know cash in your checking account versus cash and investments. Well you don't it. It hurts to sell something like that. You know full for something. I if you wanna buy a couch or buy new cars like that. You're you're less likely to go in and sell your retirement account or do something like that because you've invested time and effort into that selection to where you know that you're giving up a pc your future at that point. Yeah i mean i. I agree that Mike that i think daughter is just jason's league. He's being nostalgic. There's a lot of utility to not having physical cash from just the fact that does less tefft. You know you don't lose it like you can physical cash problem because everything's so physical or physical now virtual. It's so much easier for the fed to just flood the system with fake money because money doesn't mean anything anymore. It's not it's not physical therefore you see you don't have to go out and make it. It just uses create that that's true yes and that would be become A serious danger of the fed was creating it and just handing it out to people that i mean. That's not happening yet But i mean yes that that is also an extension of You know just using technology to create cash which in the past there would have to do physically if you go even before That you know people use things like gold Which was even harder to transport and you know how to store and save so. I mean i think this is just a technological improvement which is all to improving. The lives of people overall ever even heard people say that the goal. Ged t.f doesn't really have go on it. You know they they. It's a derivative or something. Yeah i've i've heard that too. And they're audited. So i mean if you have no faith at all in the system then maybe but. Ged is audited. But when they create a bunch of new shares they have to go out and buy more to yes and otherwise they cannot create dishes. Enron was audited to that. That was good and i agree yes So there's yeah there's obviously for fraud You know that's i just wanna talk a little bit about enron. So i was with a large brokerage firm. Doc was at its high in the eighties or something kept dropping kept dropping. They maintained a buy rating on it. Got down to nine bucks. A share down from eighty something they still had a buy rating. That stock was so well loved throughout the street and it showed the corrupted system all the way through when a major big eight at the time accounting firm arthur andersen You know basically audited financials and said that it was clean but what they did not audit was the things that were off-balance-sheet not sure how something is off balance sheet at all because they own it. It's got ultimately be on balance sheet. Something that's off-balance-sheet theoretically should not be able to affect your financial performance is not part of your balance sheet but there must have been some obligation that ultimately where it came back to go from off-balance-sheet on balance sheet because it it destroyed the company but it shook up the Financial accounting The controversy behind of course it gave rise to the sar beheadings of oxley. Which you know means that if you lie on your financials whether you're an auditor. Cfo cfo or something. You can actually be shot and killed. That's not triggered you can just about you know you certainly in a financial sense you can. You can go to go to prison so right and welcome us around the same time you know. That was the big accounting scandal by buy was huge. Right around ninety nine. I think right before the bust and It's interesting you know. A lot of these scandals happen vendors euphoria in the market where people are just not willing and this obviously when applies to people who are supposed to be in charge or whatever the times best so good that they thought they'd get away with it gotta do even look at the during the financial crisis on mortgages and the rating agencies right and that was the time of euphoria with houses and same thing happened. The rating agencies are never i mean they. They're not to blame for a right. It's a fear of of upsetting the apple cart. And what happens sure on the back end of that you know because you may see it and you say well if we do this we're gonna caused the biggest meltdown that'd be they the rating agencies. If we do this we're gonna caused the biggest meltdown in the history of jesus in the table with the money. Chain let's let's say let's bad system. Who do so. I was bad it was it. was you know. And you can trace a lotta straight back to countrywide which nobody ever any prison time that i know of the okay Working moms moms are neglecting. 401k one k. Rollovers why advisor should help so a lot of people will leave a job. They will have participated in the 401k. Plan they might have a few thousand dollars or maybe more in this four one k. Plan of this old company and it's easy to kind of let it be because you are getting a statement showing you've got the money sometimes it's invested in a s and p five hundred kind of fun and if the market's going up looks like it's doing well but the problem is the money really not being managed it's not part of your management so to speak in. There could be a problem with that. I think there's there's a lot to be said about this and that the just the lack of Oversight on these these plans you like you said tom. If you go to three or four different jobs and you've got you know four different 401k's well when it's all said and done. What are the fees. You're paying for those you know for the investments inside those 401k's what's the overlap between all four of them. You know you you really could end up either a costing yourself a lot of money or losing out on potential investment returns. Which then extends your working lifetime. And that's just it's as simple as if if you don't treat your if you don't treat your retirement and your your financial goals with the importance that they deserve. And they're not going to work for you when i tell you. What else does it the likelihood of cashing it out you know. Closing the account taken a distribution is much greater if you have all these smaller 401k's you say well. I'm not even gonna worry about that. It's only x. Amount of money just going to cash it out. Send me a check. Well if you're under fifty nine and a half. You're paying penalty taxes in so doing that. Several times over the course of your career could be very expensive When you compound compound that out would it could have been. What's your opportunity cost. You know if you would have just consolidated as those 401k's came rather than cashing it out paying the penalty paying the taxes It could it could have amounted to something significant ever because when you put like we said previously when you put effort into a decision of that magnitude then again you set yourself up for better better chances of success because you're not going to make those decisions like that where i'll i'd rather just pay Thirty percent in taxes on this money right now then let it compound annually and there may not be anybody.

Antidotes, Stories in Medicine

FACT*R

"Hi everyone. Welcome to another week of antidotes stories and medicine. This is Christine this week. We are back at Inova Loudon. I am so happy to be welcomed out here, again everyone. Loved the music therapy episode. So now we're going back more to the roots of this podcast. We're going to be talking about some great EMS skills. Great trauma cases, and some really innovative stuff that is going on with Inova Loudon and Loudon county fire rescue. So today to talk about the factor program. I have Dr Jon Morgan operational, medical director for Loudon county, combined fire and rescue system and Stephanie Bazy. She is a nurse and trauma programme manager for Nova loud in hospital. Guys, welcome Cuban q. And Steph ni. We were just talking off air about your multiple credential. So I said a nurse. But of course, also. MSN. C. C. R. N. T. C R N, and you're telling me about all these crazy critical care. Trauma starts you have. Yes. So the most recent one was the trauma certified registered nurse certification. That just came out about three or four years ago. The great thing about this certification, it actually talks about pre hospital when the patient gets injured all the way into they go to rehab. So it's a very well diverse exam, just for trauma patients in general because we don't just look at trauma patients from the beginning of their care. It's a continuum of their care until the rehab and we also do injury prevention community outreach with our pre hospital group to make sure that we can try to lower the trauma cases. But we also have to care for those cases that actually still happen, but it's a great certification. Anyone wants to do it. You do have to have two years of nursing, and especially in trauma or trauma center. So. It's a great one to go to and it's just new and the background of the CRN. I'm just trained. So that's why have it. But thank you for ask. So how long have both of you been working in emergency medicine respectively? How did you guys get into this show? I started out volunteering as an EMT in college. Okay. Okay. Just to get a little bit of exposure to the medical field and knew interested in medicine healthcare. And that's where I got my start and stuck with it through medical school, and then did a residency in emergency medicine in California, and then practicing as an emergency physician since two thousand three in the northern Virginia area. But I've always had an interest in the MS since early on and had done some EMS work here. And there and became the medical director for the county shortly after I got to a position working in the emergency department here at Nova Loudon fifteen years ago so sick actually now sixteen years that I've been in the position here. So that's my little bit about my background. Yes, my background. I had many backgrounds. But when I got into a medical field, my mom is a nurse an ER nurse and then my father is a physician. So it was kind of in the blood. The reason I went to the ICU route was because at the current time my mother was the clinical director for the emergency room. So my other choice of going to cripple care was I see. And then when I moved up here, and I started working for a Nova for almost what am I almost fifteen years, I'm homegrown through? I know I was a clinical tech at Fairfax, and then in their trauma issue, and then I ended up transitioning to being a nurse and they helped me go through that and all the way up to my masters, which was nice. So when I did trauma, it was great. I came out here and they that time noble loud and did not have a trauma center. So I was working in the ICU. And then a couple years later, they became a trauma center. So I was very happy to become the trauma programme manager at the time. And it's been great. And the other thing I do here with pre house because we do a lot of community outreach is that I'm the clinical EMS clinical coordinator here for long county fire rescue four Noah. So we work very closely with our pre hospital in general as a whole. So it was kind of nice to work on this program that we're gonna. About today to kind of help the community as a whole together. So, before we get into the factor program, which is fascinating. And I actually found out about a month ago through gems article, and I actually share this to Facebook group as wall. So you all may have seen this, but what does Inova county look like as far as EMS, how big is it? How many resources do you have ales for spiel us what do you guys run? So loud county is a combination system. Meaning combination career volunteer grew out of an all volunteer fire and EMS system over the years, but as the county has grown in population quite explosively was number one and two for many years in terms of population growth year over year. Brew pretty much the time I started in two thousand three through through the two thousands. The growth is just been explosive as people have moved into the DC area for jobs at cetera. So we are a relatively young county and therefore relatively healthy in. Terms of problems of that come with typically with aging. But we run about twenty thousand EMS transports year. The county itself is roughly almost is right around four hundred thousand population, but we are a combination system with some very robust. Volunteer organizations that support our function. They're actually critical to our success are dominantly nights, and weekends staffing, the volunteers, obviously, most people who volunteer EMS also have sort of a day job of sorts. And then the career side more supplements the Monday through Friday day side operations. But there's, there's quite a mix. And it's an interesting challenges in EMS physician to work with those two groups of individuals. And ultimately, my job is to make sure that really they're all help to the same standard of performance. We train the same in I oversee the paramedic training programs in training programs for for both groups. We have classes that have both career providers and volunteer providers in the same. Classroom with the same instructors. And so, I think that's a nice example of even though some, some folks are paid and some are not all professionals, and they all are held to the same standard in terms of their performance, the community expects that and, you know, when someone calls nine one one, they don't really think about all the, the behind the scenes that goes into men and women standing in front of them there to help, they just know they need help, and they want dedicated professional people to show up and do a good job. And so we wanna make that the very, very una parent to the to the casual server. So, I think most folks in this community, don't really understand even the ones that live here, how it all works behind the scenes. But I think that's a good thing that, that they see the end result of their service and excellence that's provided. So that's a little bit about the system that we're in at remember from days that the nights and weekends. We're usually when you had some of the most critically sick people, some of those big traumas were happening. So absolutely volunteer providers definitely need to be on their game just as much as the career providers. And do you staff all ambulances or they mix of their all LS, not, we do we do have a tiered system with both be OS ambulance transports with the level only. And then we have a paramedic involvement as well. And we're also dipping tone, the water a little bit with the advanced EMT, certification, which is sort of a newer. It's a nice intermediary used to be called intermediate. Right. So we have had a lot of intermediates the intervene certification kind of spacing out in the country nationally, but the bottom line is, it's a heck of a lot of work a paramedic and the stay proficient as a paramedic, and my personal opinion is the more paramedics. You have you kinda delude out. The skill set a little bit. You know, there's only so many invasive procedures to go around in any given county, Anita given day, and you want people at the paramedic level to get frequent touch time, right? For those skills like intimation, airway management or other invasive things. And having a. Smaller, but core group of highly qualified paramedics is the net to, to try to maybe expand the base of advanced EMT's bit wars were. That's something we're moving towards our system as well. And there's a lot of calls that don't need the paramedic level of intervention, they need fluids and the advanced intermediate level, and they would be very well managed with that. It's just very interesting to see something that's more. You said it's not a rural area, but it's a larger, not a dense urban population and just talking about skills. I mean when I worked in a very, very urban low income area and it was like one KOTA week at the Bill level, which is probably not, what most professionals get. So how long are your response times when you're managing that patient? How long do they have to be responsible for them? It varies. A lot counties a really interesting county. Geographically the way we're situated in northern Virginia relatively close to Washington. Dc Dulles International Airport is in Loudon county sits between. Fairfax, so our eastern end towards the Fairfax in DC area is quite dense and getting more dense, we added things like Metro Rail, a lot of very high density housing going into that to the western half our western border borders, the Appalachian trail. And so you go from very dense almost urban setting in issues to extremely remote limit access situations where the only way out is being wasted a helicopter the national parks and so and everything in between. And so it creates real challenges when you're trying to standardize EMS system with your responses, which are going to be, obviously, very different and dense urban setting than they are in a rural setting. So we do have some response times that are on the longer side, but not exceptionally long like you're getting some parts of the United States where you have extreme remote situations. We, we are relatively fortunate our access. And so the long end of our transports would be in the thirty minute timeframe, but, but certainly, a lot of were. Were we have a lot of great resources hospital wise in the region? So many are transports are quite short as well vitamin, it's and in many cases. So there's a spectrum there. And so we have to be prepared for the differences in terms of patient needs depending on proximity to the hospital in general trauma center. We also have freestanding ers which are interesting creation. I saw that I was actually hired in two thousand three because they just opened a free standing Yar at that time, because the existing hospital Nova Loudon was built, and as soon as it opened, was, basically, over capacity because of all this growth in the county, and so they reopened the emergency department of an older hospital that had been there for many years as a standalone, and basically, staffed it with board certified emergency dishes, such as myself and had full lab and cat scan abilities. And at that time that was a relatively unique model. This is sixteen years ago, and incorporating that into the EMS practice in terms of what patients are. Appropriate to bring free standing department. Yeah. You know, if you know someone's going to need operative management of something probably not worth taking a pit stop at two free standing and continue on into the VAT, bull full hospital. And those were some interesting decisions and discussions, we had early on and figuring out what was appropriate for this. And if you look at free standing emerged apartments around the country, they really have kind of grown up a lot exploded. Some areas on some are treated more, like urgent care in terms of EMS doesn't bring patients there at all ours on the contrary. We take a lot of EMS volume on there and very specific. Exclusion criteria things that should not go there. But for the most part, we've had a good working relationship with EMS and serve as vital part of the EMS system with both hospital based emergency department, and the free standing, and ask you a million questions about just the general policies in how you guys are running, but I really wanna talk about the factor program. So this came out after a particularly difficult. Call. Is that correct extended extrication? What is factor stand for so factor stands for field available component transfusion response? So component being blood components in part of the factor program, is we are looking at component therapy. Meaning not whole blood cells platelets plasma all three, the three components that together, make up hold what? So that's how we got the acronym factor. And yes, so we had in Loudon county, a large scale incident in late twenty seventeen where a family of five was in a vehicle accident with a full size school bus that had been converted into a food truck, and they were basically t-boned by this vehicle. Their vehicle was pushed by the by the bus up against a guard rail and the bus ran up over. It ended up on top of it. And so they were obviously heavily in trapped. Yeah. And one individual the driver, the mother of the family was, unfortunately killed in the. Accident. But the other four victims in the car were alive, and the, the extrication was technically very challenging and took a long time, took an excess of three hours, so we had because of the location and the entrapment we had brought in air medical resources. We had brought in helicopters for each of the patients for helicopters were landed in staged near the scene with the antigen that wants these folks who were critically injured were extricated. They would be brought to regional trauma centers just a pas. What is a Nova Loudon as far as the level of trauma center, and what are your trauma center resources for these patients? So noble Ouden is a level three trauma center. Trauma centers are one two and three with one being the highest in three being there's a slightly lower doesn't. So most one threes three, so three is, is sort of the end of the entry level. I trauma center designation. That it's more mechanism of injury. Someone had was kicked by horse or someone fell down stairs. Or there was something but there's really truly no obvious injury. And then there he Modina Mickley. So they're blood pressure in vital signs are normal on the be slightly altered. But you're really not looking at those high acuity traumas all trauma centers in the state of Jin. You have to be ready for any trauma. So if something does happen, and they come through our door, no matter if they're high acuity, and they have a lot of blood leading out, and they're really a, we still have to try to stabilize them and treat them. And then we would fly them to another center. Right. So trauma centers have to be ready to what comes to your door. It's just what usually comes from pre hospital. But as we all know everything doesn't come from pre hospital people walk in. Oh, yeah. So you kind of have to go with what you need to. But the standard is all trauma centers have to be able to stabilize in the emergency room, and then your level ones, and level twos are your high tears, where we would transport. A three to them. But one of our big component is, is trying to stabilize in that e e so the definitive care does not have to be at that hospital. It can be transferred. I know our goal is in the future is to become a level two so we can be able to keep everything in everyone trauma patients inside the county. So we are currently working on that, to achieve that goal, the lot of the decision making it were a patient goes depends on what your resources are region. And so there are places where the only thing around for many, many, many miles might be two or three trauma center, and they're gonna get all the Trump, right? It's gonna get brought there and stabilize and potentially transferred out as appropriate in our region. We have we're fortunate. We have a few different locations. We have to level two trauma centers on level one in us the level three at Anoma loud and just in northern Virginia. Obviously Washington DC and Baltimore shock trauma there, there are many other options as well by air. So we have options and it's, it's. Good. It's bad for the providers. It makes things more complicated because they're often trying to figure out right in the middle of three different hospitals with different capabilities. It's a kid or adult or their this danger to that injured. Where do I go? Then the patient's going, they have to go to this hospital something we would always try to try to support them with some decision making tools that are relatively simple in common sense. And at the end of the day, you know, give him feedback in terms of this. They make in the support of way as they try to do right by their patients, which is the most important thing. So how far away, were these patients from the level one trauma center you were trying to get them to be flown to so by ground, they would probably be about a thirty five minute drive. That's a long drive critical longer in traffic. Right. And so the idea is when these folks are pinned part of the part of the delay in getting air, medical resources, is waiting for the helicopter to do a weather check. And you know, get get off the ground and find the procreate landing zone in land. So when they're pinned in the vehicle, they're not going anywhere for a while. Some of those delay factors on the front end are important, and then once they're out, we really want them evacuate, and as soon as possible. So do tend to use more helicopter resources in situations, especially in our more rural parts of our county when somebody's trap versus if it's they're not. And we can extricate them very quickly. Get him in the ambulance and get going down the road to the trauma center, that's that we look at it. And of course, looking at the overall scale their injuries. And whether they, they need that level of evacuation, that was the background is particular hall is taking three hours for them to be extricated. I'm at in this is hugely technical fire department response for just the extrication and getting them out. You were at the scene. Is that correct? Yes. So I, I was requested to the scene because they were trapped and they're basically to provide support as an EMS physician to the operations that were happening both on the technical rescue side to support the team, but also for any potential. Issues with the, the patients in terms of things that may exceed the scope of a paramedic there. Certain interventions has any mess position that I have in my toolbox, that are paramedics don't and for the most part, are men, women who are paramedics or EMT's day are empowered to do everything they need to ninety nine point nine percent of the time. And so mostly on there as a support role for them. But there's a few things I can bring to the table. If need be in terms of, you know, some additional interventions might be your mandate. Mandic. They do not do just tubes. They could do needle needle decompression Ombu search to might be a couple of bad or or other invasive procedures. So you decide that you're administering blood, while they're in trapped because you had mentioned you had some blood on the helicopters that, right? That's correct. So we had four patients for helicopters in each of those helicopters actually carried a limited amount of blood with them, and it was being used on these folks. And the concern was given the link of the extrication time that we were in -ticipant reading that we were going to exhaust that blood supply on the scene, and we're gonna run out, and they were sick enough and hemorrhagic shock that we were wanting to potentially look at other options in terms of what we could do. Bring more resources in terms of blood to that scene. So what does that decision making process? Look like when do you realize we don't have enough blood? What are we gonna do 'cause this is very much outside the box EMS is so protocol based. As a physician, you don't have to follow those as much. But for the EMS world, it's you have what you have, and you can't really go outside that. So how do you break out of that protocol box of response? So it was it was a suggestion by one of our deputy chiefs on scene. Mike Kaige who who said, hey doc, you know what do you think about asking the hospital, if they can send more blood and at the time, it was sort of one of those, yeah, let's give it a shot type of type of decisions. We knew the extrication was, was gonna take some more time and the resources we had were were running out. And so it really was the only other alternative, we had other than just let's us more normal saline on folks, which there's a lot of evidences is not a good idea trauma that as much as you can. And so, so we were we really didn't have a lot of choices. And so I agreed that it sound like an option, although I was not sure it was going to work because as an emergency session working in the hospital setting. I know there's a lot of regulation, and restrictions in terms of the blood Bank and. And releasing blood even to the urgency room and emergency paperwork things to sign. To make to tell people. Yes, this is what we need. And so I wasn't I kinda gave it a fifty fifty shot actually getting blood to come from hospital because we really didn't have a plan for that. In places not anything we've ever done before. So I just didn't know but never hurts to ask. And so game time decision. I call one of my colleagues in the emergency department who was working and said, hey, this might sound a little crazy, but here's my situation and I was wondering if maybe you can work with me to, you know, call up the blood Bank and see if they'd be willing to release blood to this incident for, for ongoing resuscitate efforts here, and that's that was it request was made. And I hung up the phone and went back to work with the crews on scene. And at some point as hard to keep track of time, but cooler blood show. Up here. Just. Mosquito on them. It was it was kind of an interesting moment in, and I think made an impact in the outcome of ultimate Louis. And so it was a an opportunity for us to review. What took place. And then maybe make that a more formalized program if we had a similar incident in the future how much pledge shut up. How much did you end up using these patients so off the top of my head? I don't recall exactly I think we got we ended up actually getting blood from two different hospitals L. Okay. And so we ended up having more than we needed, which is a good problem to have. That's rare. It is. And, and so I actually don't know the exact numbers off the top my head of how much was used. But the nice thing about the way the blood is packaged is the individual bags of blood have temperature monitors on them so they can tell if the blood stayed within spec in terms of not getting warm. So you keep in the cooler or keep the cooler close and there's ice in there. So the blood. Actually is able to be returned to the hospital at Bank for use on another patient. So even though we had maybe more than we needed it wasn't necessarily wasted. It was used some of it, and that whatever wasn't could be returned to the Bank as long as it stays within spec in it's still safe to be used. That's so cool. I mean you mentioned before that, there's not many other agencies doing this. I mean flight medics will and flight nurses will carry blood with them RB's platelets plasma, but no one's bringing blood to an extrication. This is the first time it's being done in early. That's what the gems article me, and so many things with the a lot of the innovation is coming through experiences with military medicine and four deployed blood has been a big thing and military time. And that is now starting to appear more in, in the civilian world for EMS starting really with helicopters. And, and they obviously they tend to be dispatched to some of the worst the worst in terms of trauma. And so. So our local medical providers have been carrying blood for a little while for a year and a half couple years at this point in time of this accident probably been doing it for almost a year. And so that was a good resource. And so there are other agencies predominantly our medical around the country that are carrying a blood others. There is an at least one that I know of in Texas that's carrying blood forward, deployed again on their EMS ground EMS transport, or EMS supervisor vehicle units. But this is a different kind of program because we're not actually carrying the blood and ambulances or or supervisor vehicles. The bloods, staying in the blood, and so we don't have to the fire rescue the Messa, we don't have to deal with all the oversight and regulation equipment and upkeep and costs associated with maintaining a blood supply forward, deployed fashion. We are requesting on as needed basis. So the startup costs or lesson in the complexity is less the downside being there's a transport piece that when we need it, we have to recognize that we're on a situation where okay. I'm going to anticipate. This is a situation where somebody who's critically injured. They're trapped in there, probably gonna be trapped for at least twenty five thirty minutes because that's how long it takes to get the blood, and, and they have injuries that are potentially survivable. We don't wanna just activate this. If somebody's got devastating head injuries going to be fatal. But we're what we've taught as our providers to, to recognize scenarios as soon as possible, so that we can start the ball rolling, and it starts with them, recognizing it, and they, they call me as physician. And so I do the sort of picky. A of okay. Tell me what the situation is what you have gender because that matters in terms of what we're giving. And then I do a quick assessment of. Yep. This is the right the right thing to do an alcohol, personally, call the blood Bank and activate the process. And so that's how we've set it up to, to proceed. How did the program get created after this massive incident? Did you come back and say, let standardize this in, how do you train medics to give blood? I mean that's a nurse thing. Usually, right. We learned interesting school. Yeah, it is, as, as an emergency physician my. Understanding of how blood gets given was typically, you know, either in order or. Electronic medical record system, and it, it happens, and so making part, he's Ione the actual administration and certainly all the behind the scenes stuff. It happens. The blood Bank was all new to me, as a physician, I didn't have much knowledge about a blood donor services and how all that functions. And so it was it was very interesting. Essentially, what happened is Mike counterpart in Fairfax county, which is a county east. Dr ashtray, and I talked about this incident, and we agreed that this was something that we wanted to try to formalize. And so we partnered together because between loud and Fairfax we serve about one point five million individuals residents. Mark, Gary section of northern Virginia. And so, again, this particular incident, this was the first time we've done anything like this. So they of it happening. Tomorrow are remote but collectively as a region north, Virginia where not just back out in, but the entire tired of north Virginia, we serve a lot of people an on an annual basis. I bet there could be a couple incidents that this would be worthwhile when that's a structural collapse were a terrible accident with entrapment like we were faced with this isn't an everyday occurrence. But we, we saw the need, and we also felt that having done it once on the fly if it's going to happen again, if there's a system of process in place. It'll go smoother will be able to get the blood faster. We'll have the proper equipment for our transport unit in terms of blood warmers in the training as you mentioned involved as well. So it took about the incident was in September twenty seventeen and we went live with the program in January of twenty nineteen. So it took a little over a year of planning discussions, working very closely. With hospital partners. The blood Bank, you know, lawyers obviously getting down to some point when you're talking about things that are a little different than people are getting used to. So took some, you know, some discussion to negotiations of working through the challenges logistics, training equipment purchase. But at the end of the day, it was a really wonderful partnership with a lot of different stakeholders in the region. The hospital partners. The blood Bank blood donor services the community. We ended up getting a lot of the equipment for the EMS crews donated by community organizations, who saw the need in the benefit of a program like this are regional EMS council. GM council was a partner in that as well. So really brought a lot of stakeholders together pretty much universally everybody was, like, you know, this just makes sense is a good idea. It's gonna potentially help save lives. And so even though it's not something that's typical way that we use blood from the hospital blood services division. Let's make it happen. We did it, once, you know, it seemed to help nothing bad happened. So let's. Make a more formal process for it. And, and hopefully we'll see more benefit if there's another incident future, share, it was much easier to convince people to get on board when you had this successful example of it. Right. This wasn't just some you know, out of the blue idea that I had one day. Let's see if it works, we did it, and then it was more of an after accurate view of. Okay, that happened. What do we learn from this, and this was a tragic family affected was was, obviously devastated by the impact on, on them? But they were very supportive of it, as well in terms of wanting to see something good positive out of their tragedy. And so, I think it was meaningful for them as well to, to see, you know, something that can benefit others come from that an end for providers to these incident, there's a fatality or are very difficult for the first monitors involved, we had over fifty virus, you personnel on this incident, helping in one way or another than they were all deeply impacted and I think it's, it's very meaningful for them to see. See something good, comma, something so sad, and so tragic, because firefighting EMS is, is a difficult job is very stressful. And we see a lot of tragedy and feeling that we can have some power and some control to make good of tragic situations. I think is very it gives hope and has extended extrication calls are always the most difficult because your housing that go response. You get any MS where you're in there, you wrap them and you leave and you hand them off. But there you're sitting there watching someone suffer for a long period of time. So ensure knowing okay, we've got more blood coming. We're doing all this stuff was helpful for them to feel that they are making a difference for these patients, because it's, it's really hard to deal with trauma, Dane, doubt, much less that kind of significant trauma. Absolutely. So what kind of training do your EMS providers go through to learn how to give blood if someone joins your service? What's the course? So we, we recognize I recognize that giving blood is, is. It's relatively straightforward, and simple procedurally. But there's a lot of little bits and pieces that are very important. Yes. I'm a big believer in in trying to keep things as simple as possible. And the end of the day, we decided to give the, the specific training on the administration blood to a smaller core group of arguments supervisors or captains recognizing that there's an inherent delay of when this. Let's going to get to the scene based on how we set things up, so they're going to be there. You know, even if they're out of position when the call comes in by the time, the blood shows up, they should be very quickly. They're good at that. Right. And they go to the worst the worst call. Right. And so we have two supervisors on duty twenty four seven and they're they're serving a five hundred twenty square mile area of the county, which is large geographic area. But they saw we trained back group. So we're talking twelve thirteen individuals who got the core intense training really hands on how use the warmers. Transfusion reactions all that educational knowledge and we worked with the hospital's emergency department educational personnel to provide that because we said, well, who's the experts on hanging blood. Not not Dr Morgan again, I just order, it happens magically, we need the trauma, nurses, who are really the subject matter experts who deal with this process and day out to really come in and give us the true. The real answers went in terms of, you know, how likely are we to see a major transfusion reaction transfusion reactions, a lot of at the bad ones, which are? Rare. Fortunately, extremely rare, the symptoms often mimic, what you would see a crashing trauma patient who's bleeding out shock hypertension, you know, respiratory distress, all these things that are gonna be like, really tough to distinguish between what's happening from the blood. I'm hanging versus the individual who is severely traumatized, and especially it's different observe all of these things when you're in a car. That's crushed in probably at nighttime and easier than e ER floors, and things like that, just aren't practical. Well, let's take a temperature every fifteen minutes. That's not gonna happen. I don't think I ever thermometer on my right? So we tried to provide an education that was realistic in terms of. Okay. We'd like to have the following, and but consent, you know, consent for blood is a big thing in the hospital setting. But in this situation for the most part, we're gonna assume that these folks are in a state where they lack capacity to provide consent replied. And so it's going to be have to be done under more of an emergency circumstance. But we, you know, we had to dress all these things for our system at whole we provided more of an awareness training. We produced a video that goes over the background of the program, how we got here with factor and and goes through some of the particulars of blood administration, but for the for the EMS system at large, but we really want to focus on was recognition. How do I recognize when I've got a patient, who I may be the very first first responder on this on the scene on fire? Fire engine with limited EMS experience. How do I recognize a situation where I might need to call Morgan and say, hey, I think I've got situation that's going to need the blood program. So that's what we focused on for the system at large and for our members recognizing that they're going to they could end up being in that support role. So the supervisor being the subject matter expert on administration, they're going to need a second set of qualified hands to help with vascular access IV. I o as well as actual administration. The blind checking out the products. They get there to make sure that the right type two checks. And so it was sort of a phased educational approach to the system at large. So how are you transfusing it? I know. In the are you usually use those rapid transfusions, or you just hanging it to us, Teac say with any of this, like, massive hemorrhage protocol. So as a great question, so we roll this out. Partnership between Loudon county military showing. Is has done a little while. We have not allowed it. It's something I've been continuing to follow in terms of some of the studies on say and trash and crash tear. Yeah. It's back and forth back and forth, as a as an EMS -sition. I know the burden of educating an entire group of we've probably between career and volunteer about eight hundred fifty operational members and so doing doing educational train training and implementing a protocol is, is a heavy lift and again, I want to target stuff that I know is going to be effective and make a difference. And I think that data on TSA is, is still to be determined. Some have been early adopters and are very supportive. Great. I've been sort of more watching and considering at this point. And so the point is fair back. They actually using TSA. We are not. But in terms of administration, we went with a fluid warmer called the Cuban flow, which is pretty amazing piece of equipment because it's battery powered. Completely portable very rugged to really well suited to the EMS environment. Firefighters medics dropping every simple. You basically just turn it on. There's one button in all it does is heat fluids. And so it'll take cold blood or sailing for some reason, you few saline a hypothermic patient, for example, it'll take that, you know, almost freezing fluid and warm, it up to thirty eight degrees to, you know, just about body temperature thirty nine degrees and instantly basically, it's amazing. So it's not a pump it just passively flows through it. But it's a great piece of equipment. That's what we purchased and, and for that you, actually. So it can just gravity flow, or you can pressure bag. You could basically run it in as fast as you can squeeze the bag, depending on how big your ideas and how much tubing length you have you, you can put fluid and pretty quick. And that's a much better system than us just putting into our shirts in the wintertime in Boston to fluids. Old. And as you know, trauma patients it's trauma triad of death. Hypothermia coagulant be, and so keeping your trauma pates warm superport so warm IV fluids, if you are just going to give normal crystal orb is, is, is, is good. But certainly the blood I mean it comes cold, it's not room temperature. It's chilly. And so you don't wanna do that to your trauma patients for sure. So, so the having a good robust fluid warmer was a big part of the program at a big party Queant cost that got us this off the ground thirty second explanation of Teac say for anyone that doesn't know what it is. So macadons eczema acid is a, it's a pro quagmire. And so it helps in the clotting cascade and your trauma patients who are obviously bleeding internally trauma with him. Rogic shock is is, is the leading cause of preventable death in trauma. We're lucky if they're bleeding out from something that we can constrict I e put attorney. And on extremity. That's that's bleeding. We can put a finger on and we can stop very very easily. When it's internal in it gets tricky. And so we can't put a finger on a bleeding liver, or spleen or bleeding into their chest, but medications like Teac say that can help improve the likelihood of of clotting kid be beneficial there theoretically. Right. The downside is you could cause a stroke or a pulmonary, embolism or some other complication in heart attacks. And it's a risk benefit. Calculation on again. The evidence is emerging on TSA and has been for some time. Wanna Gary interesting compelling studies on it. So, so we'll see, you know, I'm sure more to come on that, that medication and, and my understanding as well. Steve say is, it's not just the bullets dose. They get in the field on. They would potentially need to continue with the infusion when they get to the hospital. So it's not just what is EMS doing. But what's happening at the hospital when they arrive that trauma center, the trauma center continuing that treatment or not there needs to be good, collaborate. Action between pre hospital and the hospital team. What are the trauma surgeon on their patients automate that we're bringing them or are they going to be on board with his treatment, or not? And so that's very important piece of the puzzle as well. And there's some times where you're not going to continue the drip. This trauma surgeon says in some providers will give it further away further away from getting to a trauma center. So it's kind of I would say it's more subjective, and then usually trauma surgeons will give the feedback to EMS saying they have a discussion what we thinking, would you see we didn't do this because we got this. We went to a war. You know there's so many different ways of looking at it. And I think with the factor program, we with education. We've also done some mocks where Doug more comes to the hospital. The call is made then the nurse will come out of the trauma room with the warmer backpack and then lab will come some will run down to lab pick up the three boxes and then bring it to the door. So we've done times to figure out how long it will take that. And. I think we were descended minutes L, it's very fast which, again, was a bit shocking, because having worked in the emergency department for many years, you would request blood and it might take some time. And so we were able to get the process down to such an expedited way, and we didn't we didn't talk much about what's in the components. But basically, this is a massive transfusion per call. So for for folks were familiar with the hospital setting. There's what's called a mass transfusion protocol, where if somebody's really bleeding out or presents in hemorrhagic shock. You can request a very large amount of blood to be brought to the emergency department immediately for immediate transfusion. And so what we've got here is five units of packed sells five units of plasma and, and, and unit platelets, which is like five or six donors worth, the platelets so five five and five to make up that, you know, full complement of, of blood, this studies are showing that really just administering just packed red blood cells more than a unit or two can start to cause some problems. We don't bleed red cells and bleed hole. Blood frame, giving back either whole blood or all the components back in approximately equal ratios is really actually important. And so that one of the barriers this process was this hospital Nova loud and only had frozen plastic, so frozen plasmas nice for the blood Bank because it lasts you know, year or two froze. But it takes forty five minutes thought and so that was at your break or where we can't wait around for forty five minutes for five minutes off. So we were like, well, maybe we can find while it's in route to get some sort of super duper warmer, that would work for EMS but the end of the day we were able to collaborate with the blood Bank at the hospital and get them to stock liquid plasma Thome rating to go instantly. They don't nothing neither back in the cooler and monitors temperature. And so they were able to keep that on hand which benefits the time. So we're able to get to those literally from my phone call. I'll call the blood Bank and seven or eight minutes later. The blood is in coolers, mighty. EMS entrance ready to go, which is crazy fast. It's really. Yeah. And so we were able to demonstrate that, that works, not only here, but similar process Nova Fairfax hospital their level, one trauma center. Same exact process. We have two sites available to serve the population center of the northern Virginia region. If those China patients are getting platelets plasma early on maybe they don't need something like say because they're potentially going to claw, right? The really interesting piece to consider is, you know, you think about, oh, are we wasting blood by having it in the setting where we need blood blood is in short supply, and, and, and we're constantly looking for, for more blood donors because of that. So we don't waste this important precious resource. But there's some suggestion that if we get blood to patients sooner who need it, they may actually need less blood product. Right. Ultimate if you look at a trauma patient, canoes massive amounts of blood products throughout their entire course possibles ation, because they get coagulant Pathak and acid. God fluid initially in the field. Because they get sick. They end up needing more perhaps, if we give them blood earlier on, we may avoid that now that's theoretical really this. You know, we wanna make our decisions based on data. We wanna see alcoves from raise agencies, helicopter agencies that are using blood in the pre hospital setting. We wanna see them show improved outcomes to really feel that this these pre hostile EMS villian blunt programs will save lives like the military programs have shown they can. So that's still emerging. And so, I think there's a lot, a lot of some pushback within the community about is this, the right thing to do does this make sense in terms of ultimately, what we're all most interested in which is improving outcomes. And so where's the program going from here? I don't take too much of your time. But are you studying any of this? Have you been able to use this since that incident? So we haven't had an incident, yet, we haven't had a deployment which is good, which is good and bad. I wanna see it get used. But I'm you know obviously. You don't want that situation situation happen. We met. There's been some nice orally benefits in terms of now liquid plasmas available in the hospital settings, if we have somebody with a hemorrhagic stroke, who's on what and needs f f b but before we had to wait forty five minutes now it's available instantly. So there's been some side. It's to get us. Yeah. So we were very as a level three there. Certain blood Ponant, you don't have to have. And as we transitioned, we ended up getting every every single component. But it did end up being a factor when you have to. Yeah. Usually level ones will have thought f p just because they use it so often, and they are higher acuity here. We did not have that opportunity. So this program benefited the patients the EMS and the hospital. So it worked out well, and I think the other component that we've seen across the state, and why some people can't have this happened because they don't have like a local donor services. So I know donor services was able to focus. With the region that we cover, and we were able to do it within like a year year and half is miraculous. 'cause if you're working with an astral, they may, you, you take the blood away from the trauma center, and there's no blood left. How are you going to supply at back? So the great thing about I know of services, they have a local ours seven miles away, so they EMS can have the blood to treat the patients feel, but we can get more blood quickly. So you're never going to lose any blood in the trauma centers because we're able to get it back in. But with that said, you have to have people who come out like Dartmoor says, and donate. Right. So when we what is being given to don't services, kind of going back into the community, which benefits the patient and the community, but also helps us try to treat the patients better and obviously better outcomes, and trauma patients when you give blood earlier on than sailing it, which is huge. So we would love people come out and donate, which is huge for us to be able successfully. Save lives, especially in the Trump population. So. I think people don't realize how much blood get can get used even just from one car accident with one victim. They'll go through fifty units of blood products. And so that's a lot and, and they're, they're kinda constantly short in short supply, and they always need donors. One of I think, Simon is this program as well was just increased increasing awareness. You know whether that's from the community even from fire rescue community from our personnel EMS providers, to, to say, hey, I see the benefits of this, and I'm willing to take take time out of my life, you know, once every couple of months and donate. So we're hopeful that, that will increase awareness in increase in boost the supply as well. And we're looking at things, you know, we're looking at whole blood, whole bloods. Conceptually makes sense. That's what we did in the military, we had walking blood banks through from one soldier, working. Good. Just immediately administer everyone's prescreened, the walking bubbling coordinated at all. So blood has is currently, you know, put into its components for, for convenience, and for storage reasons and also because a lot of it goes to maybe cancer patients who really just need one specific type or the other depending on what their their, their short. But in the trauma situation, you bleed whole blood you need whole blood back, and there's some benefits to, to the use of whole blood. There's some some challenges as well, in terms of potential reactions with the donors, white cells and things like that, that, that may be problematic, but we're talking about people who are basically fixing the die. They don't get blind. And so some of these sort of theoretical concerns, Orissa blood transfusion kind of go out the window. If you're looking at this is life or death year. We're gonna just give it and see if it makes a difference. That's the military standpoint of there's no other choice might as well. Just try something. And I think it works. Yeah. And I think some trauma centers have been asking us because I know we sent the video, because the video is wonderful and the armored see room got the video. So everyone understands why it's so important, but other Trump's oh well how's it gonna work? How's it going to work? So for us to be the leaders in doing this for community is huge. Which also if we do have the great success of great outcomes with this program, then we hope it takes and kind of goes. Yeah. Because I think it you think local you think region, but then it alternately you wanted nationally pre hospital and trauma centers when it comes to Trump patients, we just want the best outcomes in the survival of those patients, and we do everything we could to care for them. And I think this is a huge step locally in our region that could become natural national kind of what we do in. Yeah. So and you said it's cheaper for EMS to implement because the blood being stored not on their vehicles. It's being stored the hospitals that's for smaller agencies. You know, I'm sure that would be much easier for them to get started as well. The partnership is really, I think creates opportunities even if you think about a four deployed blood programs with whole blood in our region. It still makes sense to say okay, well, rather than EMS just owning that blood and throwing it away at the end of a few weeks when it's gone bad. Why don't they just hold onto it for a week and have it rotate back into the hospitals. Your partnered with a blood banking organization like a hospital or blood donor services. It creates a lot of efficiencies, and I think could eliminate reduce waste of, of these pressures blood products. So there's it opens up some interesting opportunities, I think that we might see in the future. Well, I'm sure I keep asking you questions for hours about this, because this is absolutely fascinating. And I'm so grateful for you guys to come out are from let me to come out and speak with you. But of. We want to plug blood donation before we go. So you guys are mentioning your community resource. I will say that anyone listening all around the world, go, donate blood. I'm sure they need wherever you are as well. Whatever state, you're in, they probably need blood to, and it doesn't matter, your blood type, if you have a specific lead tight. That's not a universal donor. Great. They'll use that on someone they've screened in the hospital, that's not a critical patient. So what is your Inova Dona services? What is what are they about? Where can people find them? I think they wanted to be more of pay it forward. Right. You sit there at your house, and you say what can I do? I'm sitting here I'm watching the screen, and I'm not all this extra blood. Right. What can I do? So when you're sitting there, watching the TV's and your seeings, you know, something traumatic happening like shooting at elementary or anything like that. You ask yourself what can I do what you can do is pay it forward? Everyone needs blood someway, somehow. So if you're able. To save a live by knowing. You've gone into donor services locally sign ova donor services. You can go in give that blood. And then you can save someone's life. And I think that's paying it forward in a way, that is something that people don't think it's thinking outside the box. Right. So I think that huge and then, of course, one single donor how us one single donation helps three lives. So again, it's not just one to one. It's also three other lives that you can save. So I think that huge it's just getting up and going there and finding out, and then being able to know that you save lives, every day you don't have to have go to school to do that. That's kind of, you know, US yourself like, oh, nurses, and doctors and clinics and pre hospital. They all save lives. You can save a life to, and that's where people don't think yet, and there's no student loans with it. And you get a card. Yes. And we had just released the episodes about the Boston marathon bombing for my listeners, and a lot of those runners went right to Mass General or the local blood banks and donated even after the marathon. So I mean if those guys can do it, then you can donate as well. And I think it helped those runners feel like they were contributing to this massive event that just happened so you can do that whenever you're feeling like you wanna help. That's a great way of looking at it paying it forward. So is there anything else that you guys wanna touch on before we wrap up now I think I think it's just was watching C. I think things are going to happen. I think the partnership is huge. This was a huge partnership that you don't get to see across the nation. I think we keep on working together with training, each other EMS trains, nurses. And we train EMS oh, we wanna see it grow. And I think this is just a stepping stone of where we're going to go. Working towards the same goals. Benefit the patients. And if we get things right in the pre hospital setting. It makes their job easier in the hospital and their goals are the same as ours, in terms come, so we're, we're good partnership.

I want you to borrow the wisdom. So i'm calling this episode. No more waiting for a launch. I am the launch and let me just take a moment and pause and connect and drop in. I noticed the dogs barking notice. My voice is lower and scratchy on our require more water for. I notice a bit of anticipation nervousness but i also noticed a deep calm and so what. I'm doing the anticipation nervousness. In my thinking which i now knows so much more about. I'm allowing my feet. Which are sitting on the floor to really connect to mother earth so i can share my heart with you in service of you and of me. Everything is different and everything has always been ready to be different and there are so many opportunities to closed down to stop. And that's okay go at the pace you need to go but for a long time. I've known something was coming. I still don't know what it is. I'll tell you what the more. I try to decide what it is and the more i think i need to have the webpage in the language in the titles and the branding and all that stuff the more i thought myself. And so what excuses are you using. I don't mean excuse. I don't like that word. What reasons are you giving yourself to stop. And some may be totally valid for the last four years. I've been doing some really deep work. You may have been to. It wasn't pretty man the five years before that was a really pretty. I remember some woman that i did a like a coaching. Consult with she was like. I wanna have your life like i wasn't trying to influence or but i had a big. I had a big fancy house. I had a big fancy cool. And i was painting and everything was really colorful and in two thousand sixteen the shit hit the fan and i kept working because this is what we do right most of my audiences small business owners or creatives and i went in. I remember standing at I have a picture of drew. I wish they'd kept the original but in this painting process that i'm i'm certified in and trained in that i experienced as a client. You don't keep the painting. The paintings are made with like children's paint. And it's all about the process. But i remember standing at this painting and seeing this woman that was above ground the colorful happy joyful allison but she had not excavated. Her soul result was begging to be excavated and in the image which i've shared on the podcast before but in the image underground there was a portable and it says on the portal to he'll go here but underground looks scary. It looks like caves. it looks like death. It looks like a shadows. It looks like Fire it looks like fear it looks like facing at the time was forty five. I remember i remember as painting was going through the process of There was one point. When i was intuitively chronologically like ours. Writing one two three four five six all my different ages and i was in my mind and in my soul i was going down into the portal as i was painting and i think i was forty at the time and i am six months out from my fiftieth birthday. And i've always known that there's something at fifty have any of you felt like like i dunno late. Adopters remember as a young teenager. I always felt like such an old soul. And then as i got older i could see how much i needed to honor the young parts of me and so i have been slow cooking a crock pot while also working. I have not been in a cave hiding lake right. You'll know you've know that you have to do your work and continue life. It's not really an option for me to go to a monastery somewhere years. He'll my shit. There are times when. I wish. I wish i headed addiction to something. So go to rehab. And that's not what this is about. But last february my dirty took an even deeper turn and it was like doing all the things out in the world going through this inner work journey going through this work journey feeling all the feelings doing all the things and i knew that i needed some support and i had been since two thousand twelve really focusing on self trust because no matter how good my business was over the last seventeen years than it's been pretty good there was still an inner self doubt an inner insecurity and a lack of self trust and it didn't fit with the longevity of my business. I didn't fit with my history. There was something inside. And so i've been on a very specific not necessarily private but very specific quest himself trust before self trust my last was like how can i make more money. How can things be easy. How can i always be in flow how to get more clients and please now that i started out coaching fifteen years ago as what was called a productivity coach. I had my first coach hired my first coach seventeen years ago and they were it was sales performance and so i started out as a coach in the sales performance world than i got my early training as a sales coach with a splash c. T. i for the mindset stuff so mindset and sales mindset in productivity mindset in productivity. And i see this everywhere. Icy mindset in productivity mindset and productivity and i love mindset an i love productivity i love sales but one of the things i noticed in my early years of coaching way. Too many clients one time. Things to my. God bless my company. Was that the people that were really experiencing an inner self-rule success. We're doing inner work. We weren't talking about how to make more sales. They knew how to make more sales. There was a time. When i worked with new beginner people but i moved on from that and worked with people in what i call growth and achievement phase and these people you they know how to get business they know all what to do they know the how to and i saw that they would do the deep inner work emotional work spiritual work a lot of at that time a lot of it was mindset and spiritual work. Excuse me and a lot of it was from the neck up. And when i started painting in two thousand fourteen fifteen sixteen what i learned after at the time being in coaching for seven eight years was that this was not just a neck up journey. This was a whole mind body spirit dirty in they stay mind body spirit like they're separate but you know i heard the term embodied for years it note that met my brain knew it met but my body was craving this deepening and now deepening is here. It's been here for awhile. I've been studying a couple of new modalities both as a client and as a professional and as a personal intensely since the beginning of february. My birthday's boy sex. So my fiftieth birthday is february. Six i have. I remember working with my colleague and client our coach. Jon morgan and i remember him turning forty seven. I called it my fiftieth birthday. Just because i had this nellie about fifty in it wasn't an intellectual knowing it was a knowing from inside my body and this is where not waiting for the launch comes in. I have been in january. A whole bunch of my clients. Quit i have. I have a coaching membership. And i created it. This year will start the fifth year so four full years of this coaching membership. It started out like life. Coaching and business coaching and there was very much a a track of. Here's how to do sales in every single month. We'd have some kind of business class and every single month we'd have some kind life class and then honestly when the election hit in the trump stuff that impact my family really deeply. And so i really had to go in. And so i. I kinda paused all the classes and we relied on the archives. We we've created a rhythm for my nervous system as a leader and also if my nervous system was wigging out. Maybe my clients. Nervous system was wigging out too. So i created more of a rhythm these monday. Thursday calls occasionally. We have a guest speaker. Something like that. But from the early days of this this coaching membership like it was just so structured. Was like a fucking school and it was actually. I think called school for life and business because these are all the things. I've been coaching for years. And i've had this knowing. But i've been afraid been afraid to like not teach sales and not teach you how to get work clients. I've been afraid to step out of the how to i've known and i always have brought the who you beat my work and there been a million reasons right. Anita rebrand need the right language. I need to know the problem. I saw you. You have the right copy. I need to have the right colors. i need to have the right systems of fuck me allison. And yesterday morning. I had an experience so amazing i love how the universe teaches us right in how we so. It's not the universe doesn't put their stuff on us and we have a responsibility to scan to into it to listen and my husband's out of town. He is having a blast. Probably gonna bring it home His fortieth reunion in skoda sheberghan. And i love being alone. I love being in my house. I'm a homebody. I have been really missing my mom. I wrote a post yesterday like yesterday morning. So yesterday was the seventh. I felt this physical heaviness in my body. I felt the need like i'm scrolling on social media and there's a there's a patio furniture said like i just could sense myself wanting to avoid the discomfort of this heaviness by buying shit. That's that's one of the ways that i like. Bypass my feelings. Is i buy shit which has not served me. I've gotten way better and what happens is so what are trained myself to do to be aware of is that when i'm feeling those The the when. I'm feeling the craving to avoid uncomfortable. Feeling irwin i catch myself shopping for something. I don't need number one. I make everything set in the cart for twenty four hours and a lotta times. Never go back. Number two is like oh what am i craving right related my craving. So i did that yesterday and i wrote a post on facebook i covers like maybe i shouldn't bose says it's a little sad your sad. I missed my mom also. My mother has rheumatoid arthritis among some other health issues. She's had it since. I was very young and all my family is vaccinated but my mom would have to go off of her medication for like eight weeks to get the vaccine and she's pretty homebody like me to know she goes out. Her doctors visits and things like that very safely and she and my dad have been very safe all through kobe. My dad is vaccinated but my mom is not because my mom would have to go off of her medicine and that medicine saves her life like so not only. Would you have to go for medicine. Should be in pain for nine weeks to get the vaccine and so it's just really not prudent. That's thing so arthritis is immuno-compromised. It's a community problem right so she already has a week immunity system and so i missed my mom. I moved back to the austin areas. That i could be with all my family. My family is my heart. Sometimes they bug the ever levin suck enemy they trigger everything in me but like i can feel my chest opening when i talk about my family. I don't have biological children of never been pregnant. Have bonus kids. they're awesome but my crow family and the grandkids in my parents is just god. They drive me nuts. But i loved them so deeply in it is very important for me to spend time with them and in physical space time and right now. We're keeping my mom safe. I'm keeping my mom safe. And so i'm not going over there and yesterday i was just like i noticed. I wanted to connect. I noticed i needed connection and i didn't wanna connect with the lady at sonic who brings me my meal. God bless her. But i connected with her a lot. I wanted to connect and there was really nobody outside of me to connect with and so i sat and i connected with me and i didn't coach myself and i didn't use my thinking and i didn't do a thought model on. I didn't even pray. I just sat and felt listen stations in my body. I wrote about them. Because for me when i write about the sensations i witnessed myself. It makes it more real to me. It makes it so. I'm visually doing it. I'm doing it with my hands. I'm having the sensory experience. And then share it. Because i share it for my own witness that i share it so that other people can see their sell themselves in some of my challenges and so i shared and i had a brief connection with one of my clients who's also a friend and my realtor and after that heart connection wasn't even deep. We were just kind of catching up on marco polo and all the sudden. All that after just being present with myself what. You need sweet south. Oh i hear your sad. I can feel the tension in your chest and just acknowledging myself and going through my own process that i've learned to do to hold myself. I spoke with my client. My friend and all the sudden like my body just cleared up all that in all the sudden this this knowing had the space to rise up there was no more filter there in e there was no more filtered. There was no more barrier like. Oh shit i got a lot of stuff to do. I got to change my webpage. I've gotta change this. I got to change this. I gotta do do. I did some of that stuff yesterday. And i will do some more of it later. But today's the day. Today's the day that i make the declaration that i'm a self leadership in life coach. I'm here to help you be who you. I'm here to help you. Cultivate your being in the world. I'm here to help you meet yourself. We have a recent episode. Where i talk about like everybody says be you. How do we be ourselves if we can't trust ourselves. And how do we How do we build self trust if we really don't know who we are. And here's what i know. I know it no it. No it i see it. I watch it on three to four coaching calls a week. Most of us human beings do not know ninety five percent of who we are. I was just talking you. Jodi garcia Most of us do not know who we are. We have been trained and taught to shove parts of ourself away. We have been trained to spiritually bypass and positively bypass and and all my smart people got. I love you my intellectual thinking people. We have been cognitively. Bypassing parts of ourselves parts of our being parts of our personality parts of our sold that just need to be held and witnessed. They do not need to be coached. They do not need to be trained. They need to be seen and then to take a step further. They need to be seen in communities so that there is a genuine sense of belonging belonging. So that i changed my beliefs. Like a fucking kalt but a belonging in. I know who i am. I'm exploring who i am. There are parts of me. I'm comfortable with are parts of me. I'm not comfortable with. I am here for myself. In the celebration. In the expansion. I am here for myself in the wobbles and rumbles but no one has taught us how to do that. We have taught been taught to source that to god to source that to our teachers to source that to the world to source that to our staff to source that to our income to source that to our relationships to source that to our kids. No no no. I am here to teach you to meet and get to know and build a relationship with yourself so that you can begin to trust yourself and are not talking from the intellectual arm talking that no matter what happens and i'm not saying you're not that you're happy you don't have to be happy. I'm saying that i am here to help. Facilitate introducing you to all of you for years. I've been the authentic person before authenticity was cool. Two thousand seven eight in two thousand seven or eight. I was on a panel of coaches and we were talking to a room of international coaches in our giant freaking company. I don't remember who asked me the question. I don't remember what the question is. What's really fun is some of my current clients. Were in that room all those years ago. Somehow it came out that i struggled with the president anxiety and yet here i was the most successful powerful leader coach of all these coaches who coach coaches in real estate. My program had done amazing and so people were looking at me. Like i wanna be allison and yet. I struggled with depression anxiety. When i shared that in the room. My i don't call my boss. But i guess she was my boss. She was like i would never have shared. That was mortified. Embarrassed ashamed ashamed of mine humanness. I wasn't ashamed of my humanness that was deciding moment for me not in the room in the room. What happened was after that panel. There was a line of people that came to me to say. Thank you me too. Thank you me too. They didn't say. Oh i want to. Can you show me how to make two hundred thousand dollars. Can you show me how to grow my program. They said. Can you show me how to be me with depression anxiety. That was a long time ago. You know what i've learned since then i. I now know what depression is or what it was for me. I know what anxiety is for me. I know how to. I don't i don't experience depression anymore. I do not experience. I have been clinically diagnosed with depression. You know why. I'm not depressed anymore. I don't depress my feelings. I'm more likely to feel anxiety because they that lives in my head but depression was when i shoved all these feelings and i shoved all these parts of me that i did not wanna know into my body and my body disassociated and just went and any of you that have experienced depression that is like depression For some people it can be very miserable experience but for me. it's very heavy thick. Sometimes you wish it were worse because then there would be feeling. We certainly wish it was better. I don't experience that anymore. Because i don't depress my feelings. I don't shove them into the closet. I'm learning not to project them gotten much better. I do not project them onto other people. I own my shit. I am so thankful for the shit around me in my life. I told my parents the other day. God bless you mommy daddy parents. Sometimes i say i'm so sorry for the way we screwed you up and i'm like the ways you screwed me up where the path to my healing. It's not it's not anybody's fault. They were my opportunity. You're mismanage Management of money. If you hadn't mismanage money. I would never have learned to manage many if you haven't been overwhelmed than disconnected and hedger addictions and problems and been allowed screamer than i wouldn't be the person who knows how to meet her cravings and soothe her not. Meet him outside but how to hold myself. When i'm having the craving connection had to ask for what. I want to reach out how to give to myself. I see like i see. And i remember in the early days of this learning in studying this practicing with my clients in this being with my like being in it with my coach slash therapist. This is the piece that so many of us are missing. And i'm sure there's a million modalities and i've struggled with I've rumbled wrestled with all the sudden. My need for certifications dude. My life is a certification. I give myself a life phd. I do my work. I am in. I am an integrity. So much of what. I'm learning experiencing in teaching and coaching with clients. Right now is the certification. Now it's not the piece of paper that the organization gives us and no. I'm not gonna be abusive with my workout here. This is the work that i was born to do. I've been training for it for forty nine. And a half years in my thinking brain says let's reorganize the coaching program. Lets reorganize your offerings. And how many of you do that. My state of being is primary. I am that. I am a woman of range i am that i am both and i am that. I am brilliantly smart and have a very strong coachee manager. But i am that i am in my body listening i am i am you am too i am that i love entrust myself. I am that. I have deeper. And when i say deeper. I don't mean logical all the bypassing that i've done my knowing something from the neck up. I feel it in my bones heaviest i've ever been. I have a girlfriend Haven't seen in a while and we had to break up a few years back but we reconciled. But i don't talk her often in yesterday. I was as i was in the middle of this lake moment. She sent across this picture of me in all my god. Y'all my body was fucking and i went to the pool yesterday. My new bathing suit. And i just i'm i'm just me. I have wore softness An extra fat they wing of extra hair and it was tempting to go down the shame. But i realize i have more space inside of me. I have more grounded in being. I have more fucking self trust and self love in the body and i will figure out our thing but i am perfect right now. If if it took getting this belly and these giant fricking boobs that are full of cyst to become the woman i am. Today i wouldn't trade it. Her that tiny worldly perfect body in the world. I'm a different kind of health. I'm a different kind of strength. And ask i rebuild my health and my straight from the inside out off. You can't build it from the outside in people we yes. We need systems and structures. They support us. And i tell you what. I can see analogy after analogy after analogy after analogy of of moments when i jumped off the cliff before the structures were there and then i went back and rebuilt them. I told my clients yesterday. I said tomorrow's eight lionsgate new moon. New moon is the time to release something new and yesterday morning heaviness. I felt it. I was present with our let it be in my body as long as it needed to be. I listened to it. I tell my clients. Don't just put your joy on the altar you put your fear on the altar and your doubt and your insecurity and your disconnection and your disembodiment and let's listen. Hold it in the drop out of your head into the holy altar of your heart. Listen get curious ask it what it needs. Be present and connected. The image that comes to my mind is of pooh and piglet and the way pooh and piglet just to be with each other. pu doesn't coach piglet. He just bs with them. I am so tired. I mean i i still love strategy. I love talking about business. That will never go away. But i am not leading with that. We'll have a quarterly business blah blah blah. You can bring business up anytime you want because business is one of the vehicles of your expression of being an meeting yourself. Of course all looked all my clients are business owners or wannabe business owners. But you can find out how to on talk talk on a sixty second video. I do believe everybody should have a good sales training. And i am not your gal can refer people are. I may bring a sales trainer into my program. Once a quarter. I am the launch everything about not everything a lot of things about my brand feel slightly off there so close so close and yesterday. The one thing i made sure to change was the yellow in my heart Yellow heart has been part of my life. I don't know forever and it's become the primary logo This little yellow heart. And what i love is when i had my hats made. They didn't have a yellow like my branding. the hilo of the old brands and actually out in the world. You'll see some of both until i can take care of. It is too cold. It's disconnected from the warmth of my heart. And when my sweet wonderful branding. People in two thousand seventeen gave it to me. I knew that. And i did not trust myself enough to say something. And yes it's silly as a It was good enough. That which is not me is falling off. And i welcome it and i release said to call in everything i am. I am not a cold cool color yellow. i am the warm golden yellow of my heart. I am not a three color little out Three colored complimentary brand colors. I am all the fucking colors of the rainbow. Whenever i damn well please. I do not need to look good. I do not need to wear. I'm wearing my dog walking outfit and for for you. Those things may feel so at home in your soul. And i want you to have them. I am not saying they're wrong. But i am saying what stops me is anything in the outer shell. Anything from my head up. Stops me from hearing. What's true even now as my heart is beating. Armpits are sweating. And i'm here preaching on a sunday morning. Because you know why that's what i do. I'm a teacher. I'm a preacher. I'm a facilitator. I'm a coach. I'm another kind of mother helping you. Mother and father your way back to you. I am not legally allowed to say that. I'm therapist or counselor. When i was in graduate school we could call ourselves council counselors but i do council people back to themselves it is slow and it is deep and it is not a fuck. Can summer camp mountaintop moment. And then you go back down. I am tired of waiting for the breakdown that leads to the break through new. Why are we waiting for breakdowns. To have a breakthrough. Why are we not marinating. In the way we want to be on a gentle and regular basis do you know. I don't wait for my therapy or my coaching sessions to meet myself. Oh rebecca i've got to talk about all this. I don't have an appointment with her for two weeks. Shove corner shove it in the corner. No no no no. Hi allison i am here for you. I will not leave you. What part of me needs some attention. And so yes. I cannot say that i am i. F s train. While i trained. I'm not legitimately haven't done their certification level one. I'm currently. is f. I f s informed. I am currently in training. I am her been training for seven months. I am also experiencing this work deeply as a client. I am bringing it to my coaching sessions. My clients are experiencing it. Many of us are learning both as the student of the system and the human being opening to these new ways of being. They're better sales coaches than me. I used to be a great sales coach. And i don't sales. Coaching and business is my zone of excellence. And as i even talk about it it makes my lungs like my ribs. Start fighting with each other. Want you to have sales coaches if you if you need someone to teach you how to do sales my way of being is my sales and yes i have things i do. Honestly i learned those in real estate. Everybody say. I wanna be a great coach. I want to build a coaching business. I want to build an online business as a great gobi realtor for three fucking years. I got the greatest sales turning in real estate. And by the way be a realtor in two thousand eight when the market has not realtor. Now where everybody's buying and selling but go well now. It would be good too because it's gotta negotiation so i am all for skills skills fucking matter to me but skills without the embodied essence of who you be fall flat levy disappointed. Leave you discouraged. I think about family members that i have. And i'm to mention my dad because it's even though a is anonymous. Dad is not anonymous in a my dad's been sober for. I can't remember how many years his birthday is in may But it's it's like probably between twenty five and thirty years. I can't remember sorry dad. Not that you listen to this. My dad goes to meetings every single day to support him on his journey and to not only to support him on his journey of of being sober but to be with other people who are on the journey of being sober. It's not fun to do this difficult work by yourself and when i started bringing. Afs internal family systems in parts work to a deeper level. Because i've been doing parts work in repainting work with my clients for twelve years. When i started bringing this to my clients i brought it in a group setting a little one on one here but i brought it as a group and the way i'm being trained is individual and the other day of listening to a podcast of a woman who uses ifs in groups and she works with them a different kind of person than i work with. She works with with emergent situations. She works with homeless people. She works in a traditional therapeutic. Clinical sitting were there are emergency states. I am not trained for that. And as i was listening to her hearing her i was like. Oh this is what we do in. Soule's that part of this process of meeting ourselves trusting ourselves and being ourself is being ourself meeting ourselves. Entrusting ourselves in community to be witnessed by ourselves to be witnessed by our peers and so that we are belonging together not as human beings that are just the same. Oh yeah me too. I'm not alone back but also as human beings that let you be yourself and be different. Let you ask questions that let you be in the curiosity of who you are that. Let you be in the wobble. They don't want your bullshit and as a community were always drawing one another back to their true selves. I'm not the guru. I love to teach. But i'm not the fucking guru you're the guru you are the one that knows you. The best and i am not here to kick anybody's asses or hold you accountable and i get there's a time and a place for sales bootcamp and hold you accountable and kick your ass but my soul is telling me that we don't need any more ass kicking we need to reclaim our internal authority. The authority that was taken from us began being taken from us. From the moment we were measured in the womb. Do you know that when you in the womb you were sonograms and measured and put into a percentile and then you were either breastfed or you weren't and you were judged you were you were. Your authority was taken away and as a child you were young wild and free Serious i watched my nephew bom and he is so curious. And i see the adults around him. Stop it's your fault. He's just being curious. He's experimenting with the world and the world in our lives are one giant scientific experience. We have a hypothesis. We gather our materials. We conduct the experiment and and instead the world teaches us. You did it right or wrong and instead of going. Oh i experience what happened. This is the impact that had on me. This is how i feel it in my body. What might make it better the next time. And let's go try again and i'm so tired of the fucking rules that i see out in the world that i put on myself that i put on my clients that we will put on ourselves. We went to school. We all got shoved into this little standardized testing bullshit like the whole reason to go to school is not learn. My client lane unschooled her kids. They're unschooled is there so that they learn not so that they learn how to be institutionalized and then we have religion. God will save you if you give up your self fuck. That god is not your authority. God gave you your authority. Call me blasphemous if you will but i have deconstructed that shed human beings are the ones that said. If you don't give up your authority will go to hell giving up your authority your autonomy yourself. Trust your intuition your knowing your full presence with yourself. That is hell now. And i'm here to help create heaven on earth so that you may reclaim your being everything you want is inside of you. But we've been taught to give it up. We've been taught to give it up to commercialism we've been taught to give it up to Politics we've been taught to give it up to the stuff. We buy capitalism l. I'm a capitalist. Tried to be conscious capitalist. Also a little bit of us socialists. Call me a fucking call me if you will. I have not here to take away anybody's autonomy. I am here to help. People get their autonomy back. I'm not a fucking patriot. Hi salsa marilyn news this morning politics my country. I don't pledge allegiance to the flag. I'm here. I want to contribute to my society to my country to my clients to my family to my neighborhood but when i am full and centered and sell from a sacred and holy and human knowing place than everything i give to. The world around me is better. And when i encourage those around me to check in meat yourself be with yourself. Hold yourself in the wobbles and i can show you that. I can show you how to actually know how to do that. Then you can be yourself but most of us are pretending to be ourselves. Because we don't know so i think that i'm preaching for the day but i would like to tell you about solely self leadership society.

S02E49 The Night Wire by H F Arnold

"Johnston isn't that you try outdo the comeback new you walk. September thirtieth c. P. flash ambassador. Hollywood died here today. The end came suddenly ambassador was alone in his study very something ungodly about these night. Wide jobs you sit up here on the top floor of a skyscraper in listening to the whispers of a civilization. You your london calcutta bombay. Singapore they door neighbors after the street lights. Dim and the world is gonna sleep alone in the quiet hours between two and four the receiving operators those over there sound. His and the news comes in fires and disasters and suicides murders crowds catastrophes sometimes. An earthquake with a casualty list as long as your arm the night. Why mind takes texas down. Almost in he sleep picking it off on his typewriter with one finger. Once in a long time you pick up your ears and listen. You've heard of someone you knew. In singapore halifax or paris long ago. Maybe they've been promoted but no probably. They've been murdered drowned. Perhaps they just decided to quit. Took some bizarre way out made it interesting enough to get into the news. But that doesn't happen often. Most of the time you sit in those type tap tap on your typewriter and wish you a home in bed. Sometimes though quickly things happen on the the other night. And i haven't got over yet. I wish i could. You see i handle a night manages desk in a western seaport town. What the name as the matter there is or rather there was only one night operator on my staff. I fellow named jon morgan about forty years of age. I should say a sober hard-working sword. It was one of the best operators. I knew what is known as a double man that means he could handle two instruments at once and type the stories on different typewriters the same time it was one of the three men i ever knew you could do consistently hour after hour and never make a mistake. Generally we used only one wire at night but but sometimes when it was light on the news was coming fast. The chicago denver stations would open a second wire and then morgan will do his stuff. Wasted a mechanical automatic wizard who functioned marvelously but was without imagination. On the night of the sixteenth to failing tied. It was the first. And last time. I'd ever heard him say a word about himself and i've known him for three years. It was just three o'clock and we were running only one why i was noting over reports at my desk and not paying much attention to him when he spoke. Jim does he feel close in to you know john i answered but i'll open a window if you like and never mind. He said i reckon just a little tired. That was what he said. And i went on working every ten minutes so i would walk over integra pile of copy. It stacked up neatly beside the typewriter. The messages were printed out in triplicate. It must have been twenty minutes. After he spoke that i noticed he opened up the other wire and was using both typewriters. I thought it was a little unusual as nothing very hot. Coming in on the next trip i picked up the copy from both machines and took it back to my desk the soltau duplicates the first why was running out the usual sort of stuff. I just looked over it. How regularly then. I turn to the second pile of coffee. I remember it particularly because the story was from town i've never heard of zakho. He's the dispatch a saved a duplicate of it from our files September sixteen cpi bulletin. The heaviest missed in the history of the city settled over the town. Four o'clock yesterday afternoon. All traffic is stopped and the mist hangs like a pall over everything. Lights of ordinary intensity fail to pierce the fog which is constantly growing heavier. Scientists are unable to agree as to the cause and the local weather bureau states that the like has never occurred before in the history of the city at seven. pm last night municipal authorities more. That was all. There was nothing out of the ordinary at a bureau headquarters. But as i say i noticed the story because of the name of the town they must have been fifty minutes later that i went over for another batch of copy. Morgan was slumped down. And he's chad and it's switched. He's green electric light shade. So that the glee missed his eyes and hit only the top of the to typewriters. Only the usual stuff was in the right time pile. But the left hand. Batch carried another story from zambuko. Oh press dispatches come in takes meaning. The parts of many different stories are strung along together. Perhaps with a few paragraphs of each coming through the time. The second story was marked and fog is the copy at seven pm. The fog had increased noticeably. All lights who now invisible and the town was shrouded in pitch darkness peculiarity of the phenomenon. The fog is accompanied by sickly odor. Comparible to nothing yet experienced here below that in customary press fashion was the our three twenty seven the initials of the operator j m there was only one of the story in the from the second wire here it is second ad zakho. Fog accounts is the origin of the mist differ. Greatly among the most unusual is out of the sexton of the local church who groped his way to headquarters in a hysterical condition and declared that the fog originated in the village churchyard. It was first visible as a soft grey blanket. Clinging to the earth above the braves. He stated then it began to rise higher and higher a subterranean breeze seemed to blow it in billows which split up and then join together again faulk phantoms writhing in anguish twisted amidst into quit forms and figures and then in the very thick midst of the mass something moved i turned and ran from the occurs spot behind me i heard screams coming from the houses bordering on the graveyard although the sex and stories generally discredited of party has left to investigate immediately after telling his story the sexton collapsed and is now in a local hospital unconscious. Quiz story wasn't not that we aren't used to it for lot of unusual stories. Coming over the wire the for some reason or other perhaps because it was so quiet at night the report. The fog made a great impression on me. it was almost with dread. I went over to the waiting positive. Copy morgan didn't move the only sound in the room with the tap tap the sound. It was ominous nerve. Wracking those another story from sabah. Co in the pile of copy. I ceased on it. Anxiously new lead zebedee fog see. Pay the rescue party which went out at eleven pm to investigate a weird story the origin of fog which since late yesterday shrouded the city in darkness has failed to return. Another and lodge party is being dispatched. Meanwhile the fog has if possible grown heavier it seeps through the cracks in the doors and fills the atmosphere with the depressing odor of decay. It is oppressive terrifying bearing with it. A subtle impression of things long dead residents of the city of left their homes and gathered in the local church where priests holding services of prayer. The scene is beyond description. Grown folk and children are alike terrified and many are almost beside themselves with fear amid the wisps of vapor which partly veil the church auditorium. An old priest is praying for the welfare his flock they alternately wail and crust themselves on the outskirts of the city maybe heard cries of unknown voices. They echo through the fog in queer on cadence minor keys the sound resemble nothing so much as wind whistling through a gigantic tunnels but the night is calm and there is no wind. The second rescue party more. I am a common a never in a dozen years spent with the wise have been known to become excited but despite myself i rose from my chair and walk to the window could been stake in afar down in the canyons of the city beneath me. Did i see a faint. Trae safaga was only machination in the press room. The click of the sound of seemed to have raised temp of their tune. Morgan alone hadn't stood from his chair. He's had it sunk between his shoulders. He tapped the dispatches out on the typewriters with one finger of each hand look sleep but no endlessly efficiently. the two machines rattled off line after line is relentlessly and effortlessly is death. Itself was something about the monotonous movement of the typewriter. Keys fascinated me. I walked over and stood behind his chair reading over his shoulder. The type as it came into being word by word he was another flash zambuko see peak. There will be no more bulletins from this office. The impossible has happened. no messages. Have come into this room for twenty minutes. We are cut off from the outside and even the streets below us. I will stay here with the wire until the end. It is the end indeed since four. pm yesterday the fog has hung over the city. Following report in the sex of the local church to rescue parties were sent out to investigate conditions on the outskirts of the city. Neither party has ever returned. Noah was any would receive from them. It is quite certain now that they will never return from my instrument. I can gaze down the city beneath me from the physician of this room on the thirteenth floor. Nearly the entire city can be seen now. I can see only a thick blanket of blackness were customarily alight and life. I greatly that the wailing cries heard constantly from the outskirts of the city. Are the death cries of the inhabitants. They're constantly increasing in volume and are approaching the center of the city. Fog hangs over everything if possible. It is even heavier than before. But the conditions have changed instead of an opaque impenetrable wall of odors vapor then our swells and rides shapeless mass almost human now and again the mass parts and i catch a brief glimpse of the streets below. People are running to and fro screaming in despair. Avast bedlam of sound flies up to my window and above all the immense whistling of unseen on felt winds fog as again swept over the city and the whistling is coming closer and closer is now directly beneath me. God an instant to go the missed open and i caught a glimpse of the streets below. The fog is not simply vapor. Hit lives by the side of each moaning and weeping human is a companion figure an aura of strange and very colored hues how the shapes cling each to a living thing. The men and women are down flat on their faces. The folk figures caressed him lovingly down kneeling beside them. They are identified. Tell it prone riding bodies have been stripped their clothing. They are being consumed pace mail. A most of a wall of hot steamy vapour swept over the whole scene. I can see no maw beneath me. The wall of vapor is changing colors. It seems to be lighted by internal fires. No it isn't. I've made a mistake. The colors from above reflections from the sky. Look up. look up the whole. Sky is inflames colors. As yet unseen by men or biman's flames are moving. They've started the intermix the colors rearranging ranging themselves. That's so brilliant that my eyes burn yet. They're a long way off now. They've begun to swirl circle in and out twisting in intricate designs and patents the lights racing each with each a kaleidoscope of unearthly brilliance. I've made a discovery. There is nothing harmful in the lights force and friendliness almost cheerfulness but by very strength they heard as i look. they're swinging closer and closer a million miles of each jump. Millions of miles with the speed of light. I it is light. The quintessence of hole light beneath it a fog melts into a jeweled missed radiant rainbow colored of a thousand varied spectra. I can see the streets why that filled with people. The lights are coming closer. They all around may. I'm invalid diet. The message stops abruptly. The wire his co. is dead beneath my is in a narrow circle of light. Monday the green lamp shade. The black printing no longer spun itself letter by letter across the page. The room seemed filled with a solemn quiet. Silence vaguely impressionable powerful. I looked down morgan. Hands drop nervelessly decides qualities body had hunched over peculiarly. I tend to lamp shade back throwing the light squarely in his face. He's is was staring fixed. Food with a sudden foreboding stepped aside him and call chicago in the wire after. Second sound clicked. It's answer. why does something wrong. Chicago is reporting that wia to had not been used throughout the evening. morgan. I shouted morgan. Wake up at. It isn't true. Someone's being hosting. Why in my eagerness. I grasped him by the shoulder. His body was quite cold. Morgan had been dead for hours. Could it be the sensitize brain and automatic fingers at continued to record impressions. Even after the end i know for i shall never again handle the night shift search in a world atlas discloses no town of bacau. Whatever it was that killed jon. Morgan will forever remain. A mystery was eighty funds. Story the nightline wire and i wanna say something so this story is been much College is your first appeared in nineteen nine hundred twenty six in weird tales. So you probably know that. During the twenties and thirties this was the golden age of fund. Amazing stories. We tell so-called pulp fiction which was sensationalize but how there was a huge market for fantasy and science fiction and we tales that where the supernatural but not in the sense of the traditional. Go story these kind of science fiction elements in them. They were not just the day returning from the grave although they could be. But and they usually had material been influenced if you think people like lois johnson and people like that the early fantasy writers and so a hp lovecraft is the great the famous weird tales right but the many of these many many of these to base. So this was nine hundred. Twenty six in. Wait till so i got ta su however it a couple of times i i got this from a couple of ethical. Do we'd and which is a fantastic unfold. You now put a link to it and you can get it. I think you buy fifty kuwait fifty pounds. But if you if you get it on kindle it's only about three pounds fifty so it's definitely worth it's huge kindle is so it's got lots and lots of stories going right back anyway. This is one of them now. Many of the people. If you look on youtube other people have done this. And there's some great adaptations and maybe bet- better than mine in fact One i particularly liked is done Outdo linked to while he's is done in an authentic american accent. Because this is an american story. I decided to do it in my normal voice and it's also done with sound effects. Now you know how i love sound effects of the people don't so much i really love sound effects because i love fun radio drama. You know deal radio. Plays i think and i i. I love that because my stepdad used to have lots of records actual vinyl records of the goons and people like that. And he's still listening to this. This is actually my real delight. Listening to radio plays and radio. Comedies scripted dramas. Anyway i digress as usual so old and there are many persons of this story but i liked it so much. I really want to do it in a half short. So i'm love. Then look this story paneling so for some people said nobody knew who he was if you read the common in anthologies a until the one i've got you see that people say who might not even be in his real name. Nobody knows who he was. Only published three stories in his lifetime was the night. Why nine hundred twenty six which is way tails and then he did in the city of ice cubes in march april nineteen twenty six in amazing stories and he also did one. I think in weird tales which no amazing stories was. When atlantis was man. Thank but in fact. If you do my research. I looked on good rates. And there's a guy called william russo. Who's done a lot research into move. And he says he's not a 'nigma at all these actually well known bloke he graduated from the mid west he went then to work in hollywood in publicity for some goldens movie studio and rose to publicity directly died when he was sixty one. He was a big cheese in in california in hollywood in movie publicity. Wrote some stories biblis pretty busy doing other things as well in these main job when you want. Berries wallets for for being. I guess seem like a madman almost but for movies so there's probably a very good movie to be made these life but yet so he isn't. He isn't nick marital. These quite well known as it tends just run many stories but when he did. It isn't goodness particularly this one. So let me talk about this one The night way. So why i love it. Is that intro. That scene setting your there. You are on the top of skyscraper. It's nightshift everybody's sleep he does. It's the some stories come in a long time. Nothing much and this guy can almost do it any sleep. And what they do is coming down the wire most code and he taps out and turns them into copy into type script and then our reiter is the editor presumably. He looks at it and sees anything worth in the mornings pipe. Okay so that's what it is and then they get this weird additional channel comes through displays zebbie co with the story of the mist and so the fact that the new channel comes through which later chicago says never existed. Is we had the supernatural. Evil is communicated through the wires and kills. Missed a mortgage. Jon morgan the very talented one away. Stick to any sleep you multitask. I can't do can only him. He's dead so and in fact never existed. Let's be clear about that before we start talking. Dawgs again he. He never really existed morgan. He was maybe based on somebody and in fact read up. do a link to good rates. There's a bit of a back story that he may be based on the guy who drowned on the titanic. That jeff is calling used as inspiration so so that's for me. It's that's seen setting of the the sleepy thing. So i have lots of associations jumping-off flat my own time on night shifts so we used to work night shift and was only one of us on so i worked in a general hospital and was the mental health crisis team and and at night. We used to go out to people's houses but you can imagine that's fairly dangerous thing to do in the middle of night go on your own so we stopped doing fairly early on and we would only go to really to places. One was accident emergency when it will be brought in by themselves by a relative by ambulance or the police station and we're going to see people in police custody as well because say fish places. Please presumably safe. Although i've been in police custody but certainly a can be pretty hairy in the middle of the night and actually. I don't mean to be disparaging but i can't really remember ever seeing anybody in nightshift wasn't under the influence of drink or drugs. I'm not saying. I'm sure it does did happen. But those people sticking mind anyway night shift and if it was a quiet night and i get paid for it and then we follow. Do all the paper because we had paperwork nosed is not just computers. And by far o'clock in the morning you get cold at four o'clock and you're on your own and you start to get a bit sleepy dreamy. And i must admit once or twice i did not off. Don't tell my boss. So then we asked for this that a certain atmosphere and then of course other associations like play mystery misty for me. So i said before my real ambition is to be a late night. Dj and just to talk like this and soothing. Daban probably late night dub by fink probably put down and really slow blues and double. Anyway you may. Nobody might listen to me. Put that. I would love to do that. So this associates with that and of course. Then there's the stephen king movie and novella actually he wrote a novella. Nineteen eighty called domestic and it was made into a reasonably. Okay moving in two thousand and seven which it's better the beginning. It's really don't well. The beginning when the mist rolls in and the people are trapped in the supermarket. I think and that is really good. That really ramps up. What is out there. What he's out and it's like a with they always say with horror movies and co stories as soon as you reveal the monster. The attention dissipates. Little bit think of alien alien the first with great when you didn't see the monster and want to talk about twin peaks again when when we didn't know who was that was scarier and then we find out and found out we see the alien and we and then with all of these things not in the night. Why but certainly missed. Not how it went wrong. Okay to a weird things in the most stephen king and there are weird things in this. What is so. There's an association the sexton which i was talking to a story idea for a story called the sexton and the bride and i was talking to shailer about this and she was saying well. A lot of people won't know what a sexton is these days. Especially the bloke took your graves anyway in this story. He says the mist comes from the graveyard and their shapes so we get an an an underworld debris so of tortured soul from hell and the association with the underworld which is ancient christine. Also greek and roman stories as well so the idea that and one of the celtic words the welsh for the underworld these uneven which mainly the very deep or the underneath. You know that. That kind of this. Exceedingly deep i think it means yes. Lots of associations. It's a simple story. You know these awful things come out and then the weirdnesses. It doesn't turn out to be dream. It's inexplicable so inexplicable things happen. John malcolm dies and it could be a natural causes but it could be because of what came through the wires. So i i love this story particularly for the imagery in a skyscraper at night in a big city looking down the canyons. I think he uses the word kenyans. And we see the mist filling up where we don't described and there are things in the midst and you'll we say for you but we don't want to go down and then you know so. Yeah i like it. I like it. Yeah it is definitely that late night. Sleepytime atmosphere nightshift. Make me sleepy talking about but then what dreams will come anyway so as you say this is another one of the ones. I've decided to do by video of change the title as well. Because i like to think i'm getting better. What else is we still have moved. I'm still a mother's house. He's still treating very well. And i'm still seeing sheila weekends. And she went to say some some flowers today in the big failed now when mother to take for coffee just an offered by buy lunch but she didn't because she eats a lot of sweeties secretly. She's in thinking. I know that she's i don't hardly anything. I see wrapping paper and we went shopping. And when i went looking for some salsa came back the basket full of sweets and biscuit. You need something to. She doesn't drink or smoke. So okay. that's it really. Oh yeah no segel's here but hours calling and last night fox backing down by the river so wildlife city hope you are well on keeping keeping on the other thing is if you got any ideas for stories. I should read. People have sent me great ones if you sent me one before. I've lost most of them in massive comment. So need you to do is send me them again. I've go to a A database of lowest daunting database. Because the notion us. We could talk about this all day. But we won't not gonna talk about this all day. We can talk about classic ghost stories in won't be finished talking about classical stories. We're gonna shop okay so daddy's it it. Good sleep just mentioned mentioning.

So in the lab portion of today's programming we will talk about possible boston celtics super teams which is similar but different enough. That a podcast. We did like three weeks ago. I as we want to do. We're going to go around the horn breakdown. The week's news but before all of that please if you haven't rate and subscribe to your heart's content on whatever act or look actually found. This podcast makes a big difference to us. So thank you in advance for that. So let's let's talk about levine. According to the bicycle. Gary washburn the celtics. Mytalk target zach levine. If there is an inkling that he is ready to move on from chicago before he becomes a free agent. Rapid reactions justin. I know that you you aren't necessarily picking up what gary's putting down. I mean i would love for this to happen but it seems to me that this is just you know the next best guy on the list or maybe favored to impeachment for gary. Trying to put a little pressure on. Chicago's front office to get an extension done for levin and we're talking about extensions later one of screwed up my lab a portion of the programming like realistically this is jim be very difficult thing to make happen even if he does want to come to. And it's just like again the same problem we always have. Where if you're gonna sign this person outright you'd have to move a bunch of people because he's a younger player. I can only seven years experience. It would be a little cheaper for mex- contract presumably. He wouldn't be taking less. Unsee like he would so it's theoretically possible to to strip the down enough to actually sign him but it would be very very difficult very very much doubt and be the plan signing trade. Be much more possible. As is the case with all these other rumors you could do it without Marcus smart which is pretty attractive and still have a fairly decent team leftover again a lot of things have to slap snap into place for his actually happen and i am particularly skeptical. Yeah i'm with you just not buying it. It just seems to me that there's too many moving parts to really make this work and my thing. Is that levine. Would also have to want to come to boston. And i don't really get the sense that that's a that we would be a realistic destination for him. If levin leaves the bolts. Which i think is possible. I think he would probably be looking to one of the west coast teams in the likelihood for his free agency targets and. I don't think that's crazy. Because the thing is i so we've talked a lot about gravity on these past few episodes and i am pretty on board with the celtic making a hard. Push for bradley beal. Should that option. But that's because i view deals game as being fairly complementary to jaylen brown and jason tatum in that bill is a downhill score and shooter who can also pass and do other things on offense. Levin is a pure score who needs the ball in his hands to be at his most effective and when he does have it. He's really good. I think that would be good basketball player. But he will need a ton of shots to make that work. I kind of feel like the idea of jalen. Brown zach levine. Together strikes me as challenging because i think they have some redundancies to their game back would be harder to work out than with beal who i think has a little bit more going on in his offensive tool kit. Yeah i mean. I think The way i read it is not necessarily from any of those frames which are appropriate frames. But i wanna to see another season of xactly living doing what. He did. This past season because defensively. He's really Ah liability as far as i can tell and the offensive game is increasingly looking like it's polished in meaningful but if that's sustainable or a little bit of a flash in the pan last year eighteen months i'm not sure so I actually a would not even touch levin right now without seeing a little bit more out of him because the fit i can talk myself into. But only if it's peak levine. If it's mostly what we've seen of him and his nba career than it's not as interesting to me. There is a a case to be made the he can defend what he reads bought in wants to as he got the body for it. Yeah yeah. I mean he. He demonstrated can tokyo. But i mean throughout the course of a season more particularly in postseason re matters. Is you even have the energy to show up and do that night basis. I think it's fair to extol. Yeah it is nice that he's a roughly the same age as the jays so they would be maturing together and to that end any blame defenses. I assume a bit a learning curve by way of maturity. So it's not off the table but it doesn't sound like any one of us really believes the rumor or Super motivated by it right. Well let's talk about another rumor that Came out in the past few days. Which is that according to reporting from the athletic that the celtics offered multiple first round picks. For detroit's jeremy grant back the deadline. Which i think we got the buzz but this is just more proof positive that that was indeed on the celtics radar so outstanding. I first of all. What do you think of learning that news and a second of all you think of the possibility that extravagant. I'm i think the celtics might have made the offer. Jeremy grant and i get why i really like jeremy griggs player and faith that he is both good and not a really good contract. That is probably undervaluing. Just how much impact the came. But i never got the sense that this was even at the time that it was happening. I think that detroit is aware of the fact. That journey grant is both very good and on a good contract. And we have to keep in mind as greg. There's a really good piece on. I think it was undefeated from wild back. Talking about grants decision to sign in detroit and he went on the low post interview which he attested to this but grant really cared about having a black front office signing with a team that had a black gm and a black coach And you know can petition. To his connections to the area so i get the sense that jeremy wanted to be in detroit which is kind of a rarity for a lot of nba free agents. And i think the trump wants jeremy grant to be on their team. I don't think that it's necessarily a guarantee that he's their term as they kind of enter the cake cutting him era but i think they view him as a pretty important bridge piece into ara- so i would i would bet that The celtics have offered multiple. Firsts been turned down and i think jerry grant it might be true that might get up but i think the price is really high probably higher than most reasonable offers would be for him thoughts on too much to add to that i mean maybe there is the tiniest sliver of chance that after another season he becomes unhappy in. Maybe even tinier sliver. He cares about duke being hired in boston. Actually making vaguely interested in playing in boston. I i also agree. I don't think he's going anywhere anytime soon. He will be twenty seven the season and making just about twenty million dollars flat and the next season he'll be making just under twenty one million dollars so reasonably attainable contracts. It is interesting if that reporting is to be believed that The pistons didn't want to like open the floodgates and tank. I mean it worked out well for them anyways and that they weren't motivated by future assets is granted really pardon. My french like plays balls off last season for stretches. I mean someone had to shoot the ball in detroit so maybe that was part of it but you look great. Great against us These grant in the games celtics played against the pistons last year. Grant had stretches where he looked like he was the best guy on the court with a bunch of great players out there. So yeah it's It's curious because this is kind of a half big thought. But i don't really understand how grant jalen adjacent all thrive together at especially those salaries so if any of the whispers that the celtics would trae. Jaylen brown are true. Maybe that is part of a bigger puzzle. But that's a new wouldn't incomplete thought I don't know. I think if they traded for granted almost use him as a kind of stretch five and play a super small lineup which would be interesting but be so into the celtics leading some sort of revolution predominantly off the court. But if it's the super small one that skit enough for me high. So we'll get back into rumor. Restuffed and daydreaming and window shopping in a second. But let's just close out the week that was and we're making light of it but some pretty big boston celtics stuff happened down in springfield by way of the hall of fame. So bill russell was introduced or inducted as a coach the fifth player ever. I think person ever to be player and coach in the fame. He got an interest speech from a nice man named barack obama. If a familiar with that. Name paul pierce friend of the podcast. I assume inducted. i'll ask for your highlights just a moment and Mike gorman was inducted as a broadcaster. So i'm curious what your thoughts are either about pierce or gorman. I will say that pierce is so funny on instagram. And grenades so confusing and confounding now. My take away from the weekend. I actually wanna talk about neither gordon nor pierce but out bill. Russell being inducted coach. Because i have to say. I think this this one. It's snacks me is crazy that this hadn't happened already bill. Russell is one of the four or five. Most important people ever to play or be involved in the nba in any capacity and for him not to have been inducted in both a coach and player all up to this point. Really crazy to me. That wasn't good wasn't the first black coach ever in. The emilia was the first coach. Yes so that feels overdue. Yeah been a little bit. So i guess good job on the nba for recognizing it and addressing it now better late than never this kind of seems like something that should have happened a few years ago to save elise and then just briefly on gorman you know gorman is one of the best in the biz in has been for a really long time I think it's kind of a shame that Tommy heinsohn didn't get inducted as abroad. Kathan because those were pretty inseparable pair. But i do think that gorman deserves to be recognized on his own for just how consistently great. He's been at the job so longtime coming on that one as well with kiss. We all knew that was going to happen. Use of first out all favor. Speaking of someone who was already inducted as a player and as a coach. Tommy heinsohn justin I saw a lot of people are sharing. Mike gorman stories are how good guy he is. An brian robb for example shared miss little twitter threat and i echo although sentiments. Obviously do you have any mike gorman stories or thoughts as someone has been in the biz You know he's now the the elder statesman of the celtics. He's kind of taken the helm From tommy and i don't have any personal anecdotes. Just because i have not been in the media side of things For all that long a couple of years of any kind of seriousness. But i'm really happy that he did get in. I am also of the mind that It's really stupefying is almost as a stupefying That you would exclude tommy in this award as russell being expedited As a coach in the first place but you know. I guess maybe the space these things in only so many spots nearby years. Maybe you're trying to space them out. But it would have been nice if they had done while he was still alive. I get to actually. I can take it early. That i think that mike. Gorman is an immense human being men's talent and immense order but is always one half of a full coin right. It's always mike. And tommy and for him to get in and have a moment in the sun even if all of his other moments in the sun came with. Tom heinsohn i think is valuable. Maybe gorman would disagree and say actually. Yeah it was mike and tommy all the way through so i just really proud and happy to have mike gorman as part of the celtics orbit because just like first of all Boston accent He i think nbc sports. Boston has an interview with him on one of their documentaries. Talking about like sneaking into celtics games as a kid from dorchester a now. He's i mean he's the heart and soul so just tremendous good feels all around. Interactions with ray allen between paul pearson. I never actually saw kevin garnett and ray on interacted. That's supposedly sat together. Yeah there there. Were several people asking each other if anyone had seen that across the and as far as i'm aware If they did interact with brief and civil which is to be completely honest. All i want you know. I mean i don't even to be best buddies again. They can feel however they wanna feel. I just don't want there to be this constant cloud hanging over that era that you know we all special. I don't know. I have coworkers that i never wanna see again now. It's fine that's fine. But i mean in the context of of the sport and you know it's so interesting that not to stay on this for two on because we being this topic to death over the years. Hasn't i mean it's just so interesting to me because like people act like there's like big beef between rail and that was a direct result of ray you know going to the miami heat and they really kind of brush over the fact that like ray and cagey and pierce were never best to phrase even when they were on the team together and that was pretty public knowledge. I think ray kind of came in somewhat as a mercenary. And i don't know when when when rays free agency was up and he was available. I for one remember thinking. It's not unreasonable to think that he could go somewhere else here. I mean i get that going to arch-rival in miami likely hurt cagey and paul On an emotional level. That's fair enough. But it's not like these guys were like best buds off the court even when raised here. Yeah i mean in that. At that season of the association there's so much like rondo and perk and cagey and of the pack. And then there's like a scene where rail tie shopping select clearly. He was not super bowl. Integrated whatever rail and his basketball. Johnny damon. That's fine john. Ovalles ellsbury screech go ellsbury and he was A couple of other things. Yama dr who probably will not play for the celtics. This season has been lighting up. Nearly a triple double the other day of the nineteen point seven assists game in In just the first two games with Partisan miss and i think that could be on. But as far as i say it. So we're gonna controls here and think anyone's gonna have a problem with us not sure and then the celtics prada anthony brown For a workout. So he was drafted by the lakers. With the thirty four kickback and fifteen. He played baird played with new orleans. Orlando minnesota he was stinky from three to say the least Having played now in europe he has been shooting between forty two and a half to forty six for half almost forty seven percent From from pretty high volume any thoughts on anthony brown and if he loo cornet or jon morgan have reason to worry about their futures. Celtics not really sure that. I say ron has much of a future as a celtic. To be perfectly honest. I it seemed like he played. While you're gonna give him a luck by a you know enemy maybe it works out for him or maybe goes to another team but when the brand was in the nba really beef much for mark. Well like coordinator. She only has four years experience in the nba. So as far as i am aware he's not actually eligible for the to a slot. Which leads me to think that. This jon morgan fellow is going to be more likely of the three if any of the three lipstick and we could see some new people shake loose from other team into their picture. And you know if any of these three team they have. They have their strengths and weaknesses We could talk about the middle cares because there's a very small chance to any of them are going to end on in the first place. I think it's one of the three. Does it's going to cornet just because he's already familiar with the system But that would entail waving. Mister jabari parker because again the non to eligibility one last thing that i don't even know if it's relevant by the tea right now let alone oneness publishes. Dennis schroder is having a public poll for fans because jersey number which is pretty fun So if you're interested in that in that still alive go check it out anyways. Don't think people are here to listen to us. Talk about cornet or no fence. Alex or insurance jersey but they argue for is what we have meticulously put in our headlines. Still make you click on things which is talk about trades. That will never happen so the frame is this that a few weeks ago. We thought okay if not bradley beal who the celtics going gonna go get to build a super team and now it's if not bradley beal which that doesn't feel like there's momentum right now and if not zach levine. It doesn't feel like there's momentum really for that what the celtics going to do if they feel like they need to build a super team to compete so the parameters are a super team. Is i guess nominally. Some sort of big three or something. That looks like oh. This is a two k team that kind of mentality. we have stretched those definitions because having now done. This thought exercise a few times. There are not that many gettable big name talents that makes sense for the celtics and maybe some of our ideas will will really shine light on that. So that's the frame. We haven't discussed these. These were breaking these to each other so reactions are we'll we'll react to these ones are real and honest so to us go i. I can go first if we need a hug. Oh i with my spoilt executive which would be. Aaron gordon a criminally underrated. How much the nuggets are valued him By now you all know that. He has signed It's an eighty to eighty eight million kim. Exactly what's up ahead but eighty plus million For your extension and well. It seemed my mind because of the relatively poor offensive season he had with the nuggets. Could be an issue fit that he. Winning comes in all shapes and sizes. It's different for everyone. One thing certain everyday. There's an opportunity for a win just like scratches from the virginia lottery everyday. Grab and go everyday giftable everyday fun. It's where anticipation meets instant gratification. Like the new virginia lottery scratcher high roller blackjack with a chance to win up to ten times your prize. Now that's an everyday win drive to a retailer near you odds of winning any prize. One in four point one six would've been you know something that could fit into the key allowing them to use some of that flexibility of created with its hiring contracts onto hernan gomez for example to cut salary. Maybe if you need to continue to waive salary could even get rid of al's contract you we want but you know there are ways that you could bring him on that come. Credibly expense team with the celtics have structured their contracts this off season. And the whole idea of this is that you you believe in gordon's defense and you believe in his ability to to at least come along acceptably as an offensive threat and some way to fit in boston system. And we've got a lot of fans out there. Jeered weiss of the atlantic from the bud is definitely a big fan of his idea. But it's not going to happen to a for what it's worth is only twenty six. I believe which feels impossible I also don't think it's going to happen because of the rules but denver is a team that is going to be very expensive and expensive teams. That don't win. Run into problems. So i think i don't think the names i'm about to say qualify or ruin any of our ideas but like john wall. Ben simmons may be dame maybe michael junior or joe-marie eventual domino's that stir the pot perhaps for me reasons but I have other dominoes. That i to say for my idea altoona. Gophers would you like to do the big sexy trade. That's not going to happen or not quite as sexy trait that maybe maybe maybe could have happened but prop spilled it up. Yeah okay all. My trades are sexy. What do i do fair enough. All right give me just so the trade that i have the the less sexy maybe slightly more plausible trade Is this so. I was thinking about big. Three's of the past and the big three. That kind of came to mind immediately for me. And the one that i think ultimately the celtics aspirational goal should be to model. After is the former beatles. Mighty big three with Lebron james dwayne wade. Chris bosh now. I think tatum in the lebron role works. I think that Jalen brown in a kind of nominally. Wade role also works The question then for the celtics is where do they find their chris. Bosh cinna gabby shirt gets other. Why not is bonus. It's not about us. Subpoenas does not strike me as a bash. The player that i settled on as the celtics potential. Chris bosh and this view. Also i in thinking about this. I wanted to get the mario chalmers there as well. Because you need trumpers if Needles in a couple of years two years to be christian would houston rockets is going to be a free age and it. Just sorry. sorry you're genius my friend your genius so christian. What is going to be fridge in two years. The rockets are currently in the middle of the deep deep rebuilt. And it seems if we're gonna believe these rumors about john wall Ensure seems like they have no interest in winning anytime really in the near future so with that in mind i constructed a deal around the following players christian would and seth curry go to boston. Celtics seth curry than being chalmers for all. It's so crazy right Al horford is shipped out to houston to be that mentor for their young guys. Along with josh richardson. Romeo langford a first round. Pick in twenty twenty five top through protected and the twenty twenty three first rounder for the houston rockets. And this is where it gets crazy. So there's another team that we've mentioned here. Seth curry is currently on the seventy sixers. And so as such seventy sixers will need to be involved. Trae seventy sixers have another guy who is probably going to be evolved traits relatively soon and who might need a fresh start on a team with a budding young superstar and jalen greens. I've been simmons getting flipped to the houston rockets in exchange for john wall kevin porter jr. aaron smith from the celtics two first rounders one of houston's brooklyn picks jane are james harden deal and one of their picks twenty twenty three and a celtics pick in twenty twenty seven. This is crazy and very difficult deal. Pull off but my rationale is this. The celtics get their mario chalmers and their chris. Bosh in the form of steph curry and christopher would rackets get to jump start the deep rebuild with a franchise building star cornerstone. In ben simmons as well as a couple of picks and they get some movable salary or for richardson and the philadelphia seventy sixers in their desperation in their our need to get off of ben. Simmons turned to the worst contract in the nba. John wall as possible. Trade salary filler. take a big flyer on imported junior. Who was pretty good at the end of last year. I'll be on a not very good basketball team. Enemies myth as well and then get insurance in the a three first round picks that they can flip while opening up space for tired of maxi to be their point guard of the future. It's big it's messy. It's crazy but it's super fun. So that's metric love it. My version was very similar in terms of the target but a much simpler terms of. I just throw bogota. Picks it them along with a choice of two of a younger more promising towns on the roster for the same reason outlined I do know someone who's familiar with the thinking. The front office. Who believes that. They would actually move on from him that they would want something. Like a simmons coming back or the or something something pretty substantial through to let go of because he is only i think twenty seven years old so he is theoretically young enough to make it through. I'm just gonna piggyback right into this with my question. Just not gonna can anyone off the top of their head. Remember if daryl morey. Did the john wall was that after more or less that was pre more anything more easy to do the john wall. No no you're right. That was after maury. Left's i mean. I really don't know the answer. Maury did the west trade by I think raphael stone did the john wall trade does that that could become relevant. And your trade alex Yeah jacob. here's relevant effort. It's actually not particularly relevant juice. My least favorite of the three but constructed And it really. That's just mostly because it requires toronto being taught into alford's contract because theoretically you could trade for this player but would involve training marcus. Smart which and do it Or just cobbling together so many contracts to make it to a cd legal trade that just very unlikely to happen in the first place. now he pascall siaka m- oh boo. I know. I know but friend of the pod michael pena just you know saying his praises as an under appreciated Potential talent in the league and we know for fact. He's not a good first opt yet. Very strong evidence. Chris bosh she actually taxes point exactly and he can move the ball. You can defend very well. Y- the shooting. It's questionable last two seasons before last season you have a solid if no press three pointer if you leave in that possibility and you think that you can find some other thing to package with al horford. Whether it's oliver picks that they will conceivably want or a young talent or both. Who knows you could construct something like this again. I'm not real crazy about it. Because there's a lot of ifs and a lot of things will go right in terms of of him playing celtics as well but for plausible candidates. It's one of the ones that can think of besides ones we've already talked about. I think you just talked me into it. I think alex with the bosch thing did It's expensive but mary okay. Well i mean. I'm gonna go now because i have a raptors related one but i was pretty low on sacramento thinking through this financially. This is a little iffy and would need a few months. Four contracts to allow. But here's what i came up with. fred vanfleet goes to the celtics. Josh richardson the bonus and a celtics. First round or go to toronto. Siaka in schroeder go to indiana and myles turner gets dumped till like. Okay see or something of indiana feels like a team that needs to make a trade because they're really expensive this doesn't alleviate that problem really for them but it does feel like a team that has a few redundant visas a few overpaid pieces and needs to make a move. I don't actually think that they're gonna ship outspokenness and turner but wonder if they could addition by subtraction. Talk themselves into crm and through all of that. The celtics get Benfleet which is the cheapest mos- low rents super team. I could possibly come up with. But i'll cheap and i'll say also jason. Tatum just became an mvp candidate. And there's your super team. So i have sexier trades that i think will more qualify for the frame that i myself offered but that was my related trade to that rubs and i got robbed twice first by sermons then by alcs sorry shawn subject coming to me you. Great great minds think alike as you said or there's just not that many people to trade for right now so i'm gonna go next just because my next trade is related to the one. I just laid down. I really that indiana is gonna do something sometime because that's not a team that loves to spend and it's just been an intensely expensive team. I think the smart money is on them breaking up turner and bonus and also because miles turner's overpaid. But i have something that does not necessarily do that. Which is that. The celtics trade for malcolm. Brogden they trade. To indiana schroeder richardson smith and as many first round picks as it takes while not as like to but to maybe to swap to go get malcolm brogden in terms of salary. It's cl- cutting it close and might be kind of complicated for the celtics. But i do think it's possible. So that is my framework for a big old trade. And i actually. I have another big straight. I'll say that for that. very end. broaden the stunned stunts islands kissing brogden wonderful player. I just wish he could stay healthy. But i'm always down for some malcolm braga that dude's tough as nails and pretty good at a variety of aspects of the game on the streets of jalen brown last summer Protesting against systemic racism on the big selling point with that plantar fasciitis does scare me. Alex anymore traits. Ado i have one insane trade. This trade is predicated on a reality. That probably is not going to happen but At the very least merits some consideration. I think so You know free agents and free agents to be A lot of people in the league are kind of unhappy in their situation. That's usually how big crazy trades out of nowhere seem to pop up and you know if we're looking at the free agent Situation that happened this past year. I think you can argue that as it stands mccur offseason. Tvd we'll see what else happened. But as it stands there are few teams that have lost the offseason harder than the new orleans pelicans They had a really bad off season. Maybe devante earn his rate. I kind of nominating it. A they whiffed pretty hard on the. Kyle larry sweepstakes and they're just kind of floating has teams in the west rise and fall and continue to get better. You know you've got luca. Danni pitches coming up. You got the lakers loading up for another run at the title. I don't think the clippers are going to be. I mean there'll be worse without kawhi leonard. But i don't think they're going to fall off the face of the earth. There's a lot of good teams out west and unfortunately for the pelicans. I kinda don't see them going anywhere. The current pecking order. Now some of you might be it. Wasn't this well you know. There's natural trade candidates on the pelicans brandon ingram. You know folks like that but to this would posit the following question what if zion williamson conveys to. The front office is not intend to resign. The qualifying offer for the you're intends to rather take the qualifying offer and earn down the biggest extension possible in the belief that getting to a bigger market. Getting a better situation around him will make him more money at bore security in the future it would be unprecedented. It would be earth shattering league shaking of move. But zion has rumors are to be believed Has displayed some frustration. With how things are going in new orleans. And i don't think it's necessary a guarantee that he's going to be happy camper they're going forward now. A lot of players signed the extension and then ask for the trade later because it's guaranteed money but if things unraveled to the point where they are that bad in new orleans and where. Zion is ready to bind as early as this year. The celtics could throw something of a godfather offer at the pelicans and the following They could throw robert Airing me smith peyton pritchard twenty twenty six. I twenty twenty four. I twenty twenty two. I with tune picks watts through twenty twenty. Three and twenty twenty-five can affect five first round picks and all of the celtics young upside players for zion williamson tomas center escape for salary. I love the inclusion of cetera inexplicably. Tomas sutter has to be tried to make it work but this trade is of course not going to happen at all. But i was just trying to think of the craziest biggest three that i could make a big three jobs. I on jalen and jason would ruin but the for four decade itself. That's where i went with that now. I do think that they have their fair. Share of draft picks over there under a griffin. they're trailing if i maybe a half dozen picks which sounds like a lot but really considering how many both have it's not that many I could actually. I don't want this to happen. But i could actually see them saying yes. Salim includes jaylen brown the similar offer and instead and the thought of zion and jason tatum on a strike. Fear in people's hearts as well Let's take the duke thing going on right. Yeah yeah you got a point there. Yeah i don't know that wasn't on the on schedule. But i'll kind of like trying to get into because i love me some jalen but i will say that Anytime a celtic of ru a trade rumor pops up the celtics are going to be linked to it. Just because that's the mystique around the team. And i think everyone has decided they remove away and so if alyssa's right which i think there's a good chance you are that zion at least flirts with not openly agitates for a traitor requests. Even at the celtics aren't the team. It lands i on. They could be the team. That gets julius randle because he goes to new york or something like that. So if there's a science stakes. I don't know that the celtics have the best offer but i do think that they could get become involved to fascinating. I do actually. I have a new orleans related traits. Good segue and i'll say to anyone listening. Who wants to play the game and do this. Thought experiment might advice would be to find the teams that have messed up their gap sheet or their free agency situation. 'cause they're the ones that will make a move teams that are doing well or content. Spinning retires pop. May not so. I think that out is right in new orleans messed up and needs to make a move. And so here's what i have going on. It's also like the weakest possible. Big three that i could define for the celtics super team. Devante murray goes to the celtics as does alfred. Amino for financial purposes brandon. Ingram goes to the spurs me smith. Richardson and lani walker. Go to new orleans plus a pick pick picker to. I'm never too interested with picks. I don't know that that qualifies a super team or a fair trade. But i like it. And i mean i can jump in and say i do think if he stays healthy. Devante murray has fringe all-star upside. I think that guy's really good and can do a lot of different things. I think that it would be interesting. I i'm trying to think about what would be like on the spurs because brandon. Ingram strikes. Me as exactly the type of dude. Who's a popovich guy. i'm not. I'm not really sure how that would work out. But anything that gets. The jumped at very agreed is definitely gonna catch my attention. Well also i really. What i really wanted. Was darren fox. But first of all i already said that sudden. Want to self plagiarize from a few weeks ago but whatever's happening sacramento sin stupid buddy healed and during fox. She traded because of the way that they've treated those players but whatever All right. I got one last one. That's a real doozy. You guys so many more. Eric will get the last word. Love it so i may have offered this in public notice to alex that i think that the path to getting a big three in boston is twofold first. You do that. Godfather offer that we've been talking about with all the picks smart whatever young player anyone wants and then probably trade jalen so the reason for that is a little bit of positional fit makes sense to me. But then also. I don't know jalen ceiling. And jason ceiling arrive alongside a third star player. Necessarily that makes sense like they're just might not be enough yet just as like this. Let me tell you what i was thinking. So you execute the exact same brogden trade that i offered before brogden is the star in the back court you take them on the wing and then jalen brown whatever it takes to go get karl anthony towns and that's your big three. I think that positionally eastern. I think positionally it makes sense. I think that allows all those players to be their best selves. When healthy. And i think that i would love love. Love to see jaylen. Brown finished his career and celtics uniform. And i think he could do so fruitfully and alongside jason tatum. That's not what i'm suggesting. By the path to a big proper super team might see jalen. Leave boston at some point. And i'm happy to consider towns as the big kuna. Who makes it all happen. I'm gonna throw one more thought in that cab. A big just is the third. Are you talking about us. Us robber williams yes of course axel. I'm talking about justin. Yes sir alex. Different reg- well.

And he's got a stripper hired for me and like this never had a ever ever said slide into bed with us. Starting right now pop. We put that you gave you guys. The producers wanted me to try out that new slogan. I want you to if you like dipped before we were going to continue oriented but this was good too. Yeah f you and fun. I really thought it was super clever of them right. People are pissed at l. again this time because she's trying to cash in on her beak subscription box which is supposedly worth over two hundred bucks commentators commenters. How would you say that aren't happy with the customer service and lame items. Like a watercolor painting set cheap earbuds and a collapsible travel cup. This box is all about spreading kindness and highlights brands that. Do the same. It has a lot of amazing items like these wander beauty i. It's two hundred and seventy dollars value but for only fifty four ninety nine. You can have it. I'm not a numbers gal. But that's a good deal i think. How do you feel about people and try to make money. I you guys. Ellen is a complete businesswoman. She is a she has a whole enterprise yes. She's going to try to make money. You don't have to buy it and you know. I'm not even a real big ellen defender but i mean pretty much. Everybody is trying to do these types of any beauty hair. Like everybody's doing i'm surprised. We don't have a nightly pot box. I was inspired to create one. We don't have pop in ours. So i feel like like a half smoked joint used condoms. Yeah author condoms. I don't think there'd be any no right. Why notes shell condom ratchet ours. We ratchet as we also wouldn't lie to people and called the be kind box and people are also upset with emily blunt. Her fake irish accent in the new movie wild mountain time is getting to rashed even the dublin airport. Twitter account is trolling her saying the accent. Police all needs to stop this. I don't care what are you waiting for to like a freeze. My eggs your producer bowl since you were a child. Couldn't see put this gap between case me. A fight dawns be. How many days do we have well to sunshine's not showing that it is to put her back in the quiet place. He was so excited to see with stated he wrote it down. Well you know. I'm a huge. Emily blunt fan. I love her. You know our expert on irish accent. So i'm probably not the best person to judge this but you know. I don't think it was bad. Extreme folks on twitter. Were saying they wanted to wash. There is out with bleach french-built by leeann paris like people were really bashing this. But i don't think it was less serious. People are just angry right now importantly christopher walken in this movie but the league. That's you know. Christopher watkins in a movie. I don't know you still working. I think a scene between an irish person walking is exactly what this world needs. I'm here for it. Makes me wanna watch more see do do do do in between and christopher please don't please do not do. I said no emily. Where are you going to come home here. And then emily goes. Oh ponds worthy. jon morgan. All cameron is hopping on the ass. Mr trend cameron showed off her cooking skills for zoe. Saldana flavor noun but there was one thing that got in her way kid she you usually use lying with it but my grandfather always use vinegar. I swear to god. That's my grandfather. It's literally my grandfather. What are you doing giving away. My secrets read kill. her grandfather. Forgot how much. I love cameron. Very sweet. I love on tv today. I'll tell you what i mean and cameron diaz was about she. Yeah she's a star cameron diaz. She really finding that. We need more of her in our lives. I think she's really good. Yeah i i. I don't think that this is the best like don't you kind of think that if we're going to cooking shows we're really running thin on ideas for like celebrities to kind of transfer to reality. Yeah i mean. I think that's left. Were that's where we're at. We're running low on ideas. But i will tell you this i would watch this cameron diaz. I've because you know she's retired so she's not acting she's not really doing is just living our best life being married and all that and she's kind of doing this i would watch her cooking show even if she didn't know what she was doing i would not i love her. She needs to get one of those electric flyswatter his. It's the best. That's her grandfather. Thrilling and finally jada pinkett smith doesn't give a if you like her or not. She preached her truth on the latest red table talk. I never worry about being liked. Because it's a trick bag because s with that is the space of manipulation. If you need somebody to like you it'll be too difficult for someone to to act from an authentic. Yeah i think the first thing you thinking about is okay. If i do this this league it on all of this. Here's the deal. Most people have a difficult time like in themselves. So it's almost like you know begging someone to see your true image through a cracked lens. Are you listening hunter. Are you listening really. I need to be like okay. I wouldn't have ever got to television. If i didn't care about being like so it's gotten meets this far. You care about being. Like i know what i'm saying. I obviously do. I decided to be a television started. Decided to be a little dancing monkey just to get people to tweet me saying that. They enjoyed my little joke. I made you know. And then that's the only happiness i get. My family says that they love me. And i go. Yeah but you're not a stranger online so it doesn't matter is. This never never never satisfied. Yeah i don't think i've never thought like that. Make would make life better. Make your pockets better depending upon what you sitting in the world. But i just feel like you know. I learned early on that. You can't go with all the people who show you love because that's not really real and the people who show you tons of haiti either like you kind of have to stay in this middle ground and just do do you. And whoever likes it loves and who doesn't know trying to please. And i feel like jade is in that space like jada zuberi like it's clear in the way that she lives her life that she really does believe this curve will like sir. Okay we have to take a break but coming up. How much would you pay to party in the bachelor mansion more importantly. How much money would it take for hunter and nina to drink. Welcome back you guys. Get excited because i plan the perfect team building retreats exciting. The bachelor mentioned is on airbnb and for six grand night. We get a seven bed. Eight back ten thousand square foot home a pool for hunters thirty wraps because we need that and too hot tubs full of memories. Is this worth it. Would you guys do this. Would we all do this together. Warm not a bachelor fan so this house means to me for home now. Say if i got like a dozen friends and we all chipped and it was really cheap. Still would not do it because y who gives a going for this. Yeah i'd rather. I'd rather go because i will say this. There are a lot of people who love the bachelor and bachelorette who would definitely want to stay at villa divina. That's what it's called villa divina. It's now six tonight is is is pricey so no this is worth it unless it was on islands or something somewhere. I can understand why things go down here. Like is a funny looking compound. Reality the reason things down because they plied with alcohol producers are like. I don't know if he likes you. How does that make you feel okay. So working with an x can be totally awkward but imagine having to do sexy them. Kaley cuoco was on the armchair expert podcast talking about working with ex johnny on the big bang theory. She said she thinks the show creator amped up those scenes. Just a mess with them when we broke up. You know obviously sensitive for a minute. But i remember those weeks that chuck could written these episodes. Where all of a sudden our characters were like sleeping together every other johnny talk. I'm like i think no. But i think he did that on purpose. I still believe he might have. Yeah together or just just with him. I would probably ask them because that came out of nowhere. All of a sudden these characters were like all up and he came out of nowhere. Johnny nike amount of it better than before chuck lorre knows what he's doing he dies and do you think this was a dick move. I feel like hundred. You're the executive producer. Your true star broke up. You would definitely start making them bang on camera. No i well. I would have done it like ten years ago but nowadays i would feel it'd be so like i wouldn't want to put anybody in that situation. I feel like you can get in trouble like you can't do that nowadays you can. I mean if their characters are together. Then it's natural for them together. I mean it would be weird if they weren't yeah. The reports at the time were that he. He broke up with her that he kind of broke her heart. And it's one thing if it's a mutual break-up which is already going to be uncomfortable but acting like somebody breaking your heart and your onset with them. You're trailers next to theirs. You gotta kiss them like that to me. I mean obviously the millions of dollars makes it feel a lot better because they made a lot of money. That is so uncomfortable like nobody wants to their ex. Also when you're ex search dating someone else who is both years both have access if someone said hey we want to go ahead and like you. Don't i like. I like to pretend i don't if somebody offered you like an acting roles like in a movie but and they were offering you eight hundred thousand dollars and only have to do is have a sex scene with your acts and like one romantic dinner scene. Would you do it. Your most recent ex of long-term. I'm showing up for eight hundred grand lena dollars thing. That's not a question. okay. I rather yeah already went to jail anything dollars gander thousand dollars for an hour thousand dollars each other's excess okay. That's weird now way like a little too far the other again sexual. Would you do it with our xs for free. I wanna go ahead of myself a little sandwich. Make you guys very jealous going on. Are you kidding. Hundred would show up and take his clothes off person and they would be best not to us. What's going on. Oh this is going left for all you. Helpless romantics. the latest episode of bridezillas just aired on tv. And a quick recap for you guys. Alex's bachelorette party implodes when the maid of honor secretly hires a male stripper duh. Oh and her mom there too. Which makes things a little bit. Wait a lonely hoda. Get a stripper mother. Oh him can crank is no kill me. What he doesn't know insperity lady's closet talking life to beat except where they kill the pattern she overreacting. Would you be uncomfortable in that situation. If it was with your mom maske weirdos. Like i feel like they're like the bridal party and you can have that with your mom and it could be a little spicy but i feel like i would have wanted to do the bachelorette party separately with like my sister and like my friends and my people my age like my aunties and my mom. I'm good right you know. That's this also looked like it. Wasn't that type of vibe. Like they were in their pajamas like it looked like they were about to like make hot chocolate. And you know what i mean like. It didn't look like there was a stripper vibe. Yeah he kinda police outfit was not very convincing. It was a black t. Shirt that said police on it it was. He seemed a little like unenthused by the way. This is a very like and he did not want to be seen. That couldn't have been lower. He didn't want people to know he was there. An important thing for me is if i have a male stripper to my house. I want him to really pretend he's the police for a little. I feel like i'm going to jail because then when he does the turn. It's very exciting like it's not a police officer. I'm not really into stripper. So that's not really jam not i. It's never really that exciting. It's also a little bit cheesy all the time they're expected these ladies could have done better. I wouldn't want to do that with my mom. Had a stripper hired me. I'm like i'm not as a massive of the women. Strippers get get cracking. But yeah horny take a break but when we come back we have holiday calendar that needs a safe word no in next welcome back to nightly you think our producers google sharks choice just for fun. You are not again. It's their job to find the next big thing so we never miss out on anything which means it is time for ready true. It's okay next month. Santa claus is coming to town. He's got something to jingle your bells. Okay yeah they yeah. Now by a bsn advent calendar that features vibrators nipple clamps restraints and massage accessible easing on the case supposedly the choice get more adventures as you head to the climax on christmas show guys. Is this a fomo a no no for you to move on turned kind of morgan. I think it's a fellow. I think it's a form of our everyone you know i think so. This is a great say just keeping from oh these look like expensive toys expensive. They do expensive. They go back to the last. Yes anita what's the thing on the left and morgan. What's the thing on the right. One hundred dollars a deal and it is sold out one hundred seventy on. Just one of the all of the the middle do suction cup zelic for cooking. Keep going next since hunter love cook. Perfect transition thank you for setting me there. We found a foodie on tiktok with helping hacks and her tricks in the kitchen have gone viral. Oh god no that a lot of exciting people crazy zero chance. That is disgusting. I clean air is just saying something obvious but like putting your meat in the toaster like that's not cooking all the way through and she's eating thick piece of meat like this is just such blasphemy to to the stake the red meat industry. How dare she nagging burgers with her iron. Also like she's violating and also. Let's hope she doesn't have to come home and see like i just wanted to because this works all up in here and all that a one sauce of too much wants us one at all. It's a good state by the way exactly still and also never had one morgan. You've never had a one. It's so good and the you've ever said. I swear i'm never i'm not even i've never had it because no one's offered it to me. So maybe everyone who's never been to a restaurant that has it on the table. I don't i forget about your booze every once in awhile for you guys hell to the no. Now i agree. It's a hell to the no no for me as well but do think it is a. It's a cute try. A girl for girl did that. And she wasn't much effort in the effort of putting a raw meat in your coffee maker meatballs. It'd be like she's tryin. Sounds good okay. Well that's just proves the point the mentioned we'll take anything her. It's a huge challenge of no no for me. It's all categories. No thank you finally. Don't have covid vaccine just yet but slovakian developer says we will have flying cars next year and here is a test video of their latest prototype. I'm going to start this often. Say it's a no no for me for two reasons. One nina sky rage and morgan would still leave her trunk open in the sky. This is the way to go sky range every time we talk about driving you go. I don't have road rage. But i did almost killed four people by throwing a shoe out of my window into their labeled with road rage. No i would never buy one of these. This just looks like some weird prototype that as soon as you buy his wing spot law like i'm good. This is a big. No no no now. It's a three way all right. We're out of time.

Kidding basically whistles. Welcome to another mental health magical moment with gene. Good I. don't care if it does. It wasn't the same as last week still really. Still really beautiful. Difficult to say not important. Hey everybody welcome back. If you remember correctly, this is that time where Jean schools us on some school and the school being health school. and. She went to school i. She went to School for. Still Paying for Oh, boy, YEA, school! so everybody just again. A reminder gene is a mental health professional licensed in the state of California and she consults with us. teaches those a little bit about the mental health. We're working our way through. The DSM and we have not even scratched the surface and Now. We are going to be discussing histrionic personality disorder, and this is Oh Gosh Jean. Why don't you remind us that this is i? Know that this isn't a cluster. There's whole thing it's the third. Disorder of four in cluster be the dramatic emotional erratic. Cluster awesome of what? Of Antisocial borderline. Histrionic and okay so many I. Feel like. How do you even pass a class of spare confusing? Okay, so we're just GONNA move through the diagnostic criteria, and then gene will hit us with some facts in some some really fun. TIDBITS so here we go. A pervasive pattern of excessive emotional motion. A pervasive pattern of excessive emotionality and attention, seeking beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contacts as indicated by five or more of the following. The first one is. Is uncomfortable in situations in which he or she is not the center of attention. Number two interaction with others is often characterized by inappropriate, sexually seductive or provocative behavior, oh brandy. This definitely is you. Think this is hitting it right on the head of the nail on the head Yup, this is really this is really hitting the penis on the head. Is What I knew you were trying to say. Mind I know okay. Number three is displays rapidly shifting shallow expression of emotions, number four consistently uses physical appearance to draw attention to herself again brandy. If you guys see her, she's always so provocative looking number. NUMBER FIVE! Has Style of speech that is excessively Improv. Impressionistic did I get it? Harshness. And lacking in detail and number six, she'll self dramatization, the tra- caligraphy, and exaggerate expression of emotion. Seven is suggestive, will I e easily influenced by others and circumstances. That's me I'm definitely that one and Eight considers relationships to be more intimate than they actually are. Interesting Oh. That's actually very interesting, so this person thinks that everybody likes them like into them. And if they if they suspect that someone is not that that really throws them off, and then they kick into higher attention seeking mode. I do that so I a couple. People come to mind a couple of characters from popular television. Come to mind, so thank Jack McFarland for will and grace. Or more rose from Shits Creek. Yes, moir arose is definitely so. I feel like so many people that listen to this well I don't know how old they are, but quite a few of them are pretty young people, so I don't know if. Willing graces that is when they can. relate to, but definitely Shits Creek, so yeah, Mora! Someone that might be called a diva or or a queen. a guy that might be called a queen over the top with their. You know charisma It's Shallow shifting expression of emotion so. If, you can imagine Like you said your listener visas not as old as me, but Jack. McFarland on will and grace might for a second say to. His friend will oh. I'm so sorry. Your Day didn't go well, and then the very next second. He's like come on, let's go to the you know, so. It's in the expression of emotion is. Is there for a second, but it's shallow. It's not real on. It immediately shifts to ever. He's thinking about that's going to year. She'd bring them attention. it's interesting, because as you're reading those offer. Probably everybody can probably think of someone that. Reminds me of so little bit This is a personality disorder that has been considered for removal from the DSM because there's so much overlap with the other disorders in the in the same cluster, so and folks don't typically seek treatment for it because there's not a lot of distress or impairment so so we may see it in the next revision of the DSM. We may see it disappear. Interesting, there's There is some evidence that. Individuals diagnosed with Histrionic personality disorder have a higher rate of suicidal gestures and statements, but that's designed for attention seeking not true suicidality. The prevalence rate in the population is just under two percent. On his diagnosed more frequently in women, but it's not clear whether social norms kind of distort Distort that data okay. And It's not treated because people don't seek treatment for it, so you know if someone was having impairment in their life and couldn't couldn't keep friends or Recognize that they have these kinds of behaviors that are interfering with their life. A cognitive behavioral store therapy would be the appropriate one. To work with an individual with this disorder very interesting to me like the idea that How you're saying like Oh, you know when you think of like a Queen, and then how women are more often diagnosed. How you're saying. We don't know if it's Social norms or whatever that because I think of quite a few like Queens, who are like really like? Flamboyant and DIVA E and So that that is interesting and also to me. What else is interesting is this seems to be more of a problem for other people rather than the person who has it. Do, you know what I'm saying. If it's even a problem because it's kind of I think it's kind of fun to know some. It's entertaining to nose. Yes, yeah. But maybe friendships might be difficult for them because they perceive that this is a good friendship that they have with this person. and there's really nothing deep. There's really nothing there other than their entertaining value, you know. So Very interesting and I think we'll be saying goodbye to it in the next decade. is also interesting, and that's just because it. If it is an issue it can be diagnosed with something. Near it rather than this specific thing. Another overlap is with know so the three from the same cluster netted overlaps a lot with our borderline narcissistic and social but another personality disorder the overlaps with is dependent personality disorder so you know he can really look at those two characters Jack Mcfarland in rose, and see how dependent they are on the people that they're closest to to uphold their ego. yeah, especially, Mariah Carey dependent on her husband, and Jack very dependent on Karen Yeah, and there's sexually inappropriate behavior there between Jack and Karen and we'll Jack and anybody really so he really does exemplify. All of the all the criterion there. Some. Well, thank you so much for telling us about this. Do you have any idea what we might move onto next? Next week will be doing the last of cluster. Be So narcissistic personality disorder. And I have someone in mind to use as our example for that one as well. Oh, yeah, okay. Awesome! Well, thank you so much. We really appreciate your time and we will talk to you next week very welcome by. All Right? What's next next up is? Must. Ha. Let's see how the stars are going to fuck with. US This Week. Let's do. Okay, Jim Jim, Jim and Adam and Agena. The current aspect could be you know liberating influence as far as your feelings are concerned if you have been rigidly maintaining a particular stance or outlook in order to make sure that one relationship doesn't get out of hand. Then you could. Then, you could actually I was gonna say totally you could totally be. subconsciously making things worse, what? Oh Shit, it may be best to let go in the while your heart to Mope. Oh. This better be. This may be better than you imagined so like. What's my issue with my husband right now? I've been holding a really strong stance on something I. Don't think so like here's my stance right now. Stop Stop Bringing Red Solo Cups into the bathroom at night. And then I have to stack them. And then you're like well. If you didn't stack them, we wouldn't have to bring new one in there, please. You were going to bring them gonNA. Xactly, so I'm now, I'm just stacking. You're basically what I'm doing. I'm stacking them up in the bathroom. And then I pretend they're clean and put them back for him to use. No It'd be hilarious. Why not he would notice no, and he told me the other day because they drink out of the same plastic cup for a long time before I wash it I, just put water and if it was like milk than yeah I'm GonNa Wash. Water. Have you washed that and like not for awhile. He's like you should wash like. Who are you tell me so? Sorry? He was like it's gross of you. Don't wash it and I'm like it's gross if you collect so cuts in your. Stop throwing stones. But I. Guess I'm going to have to let that stance. Go you know Cups go rapunzel. You just put the Solo Cups. Wherever you want wherever your heart decides, they should go. Next step is libra. Kate now. The current planetary energy brings with it the chance to fantasized Romanticize to your heart's containers. Oh, you have a permanent partner. uh-huh, then you may feel expending time trying some of your favorite ideas out just for fun. Oh maybe some little panties on their doors. So if you're looking for a relationship in which you can have some fun, the new all need to act subtle and mysterious. Go for it. I feel like that. Is You though well settle no I. Don't think subtle. Is Christ furious for sure? Yes, not subtle because you come in like a freight train. Let me, insult you until you like me. I hate you good. That's the way I wanted. I WanNa make you feel small and insignificant so I can ruin your life. But then you are mysterious, 'cause you're like areas like sometimes you know we'll call you and call you and Collin Collin. Collin in, and then you just don't answer and I'm like she's being so mysterious. But then when you do, call me back. You're just like snappy. Taking and staying I'm like for four hours. Obviously.

I can't tell if we're just pausing because we're searching for an answer because there's so many to pick from. I got a couple on rank them here. I know them.

Come Fuck Out I. Know what I'm doing. And then I ran out of the room in front of my entire school. Because it was like a dress rehearsal, they had never done it before. Just bawling crying. Disappointing, you know what's next. Question was yes, I was just GonNa say that. Sounds Yeah. It sounds like that'll double as your most embarrassing moment, I felt that one in my soul. I feel for you. Ten years later I figured out how to sing and I was like okay well. Okay go ahead. Go Looking. Here's your chance. To! Going to be your second most embarrassing man. Now on the podcast. So good. Okay well, yeah, the next question is then What's your most embarrassing moment? I got this so a few years ago I went back to Peru where my family's from where I'm from, and it was I think it was the fortieth or fiftieth anniversary of my grandparents or something, so was like a big deal right like Golden Golden I. Dunno, it's called anyway, but so we're all like you're doing some ceremony at Church. Because IT Super Catholic over there and everyone's kind of like doing some procession thing, we're all saying hi to our grandparents or whatever, but it's like every like whole churches filled. I couldn't help myself and as soon as I get to my grandma, I fucking dislike sinise but I. don't just sneeze like there's not that just comes out and like flies onto her. Ping. Someone could get like a handkerchief and there was like this is a little bit stain. I wanted to die. I wanted to just God's might. And she was probably like she's probably I should've never had children. Still to this day, I can't escape it, anymore modise. Wow! It's really it's really sad that you did that to your poor grandma. Yeah Read from just telling that story. I get that way when I read from my book with my high school friend. I get that way. Get Red and sweaty. I could talk about Brandy Pink picking my assets, and that doesn't bother me, but as soon as I'm reading how I had a crush on a boy I never spoke to I'm like Ugh killing me. Everything inside is awkward. So the next question is how do you feel public pooping? And when we asked that we mean like pooping in a toilet in a public place. I'm fine with it most of the time everybody is everybody. Just go shoot it out. As quick as possible. I won't do it if I feel like it's one that's GonNa take awhile where it's going to slowly be a slow slow work are working job shor-short. But if it's going to be you know a slick like dirty quick. Yes, flicking dirty! Like to call my poops. Stabbed that looking dirty. If I can avoid it I'll do my best to, but it's like if you gotTA. Do you gotta do I'm just kind of I'm like really mad at America for like letting us. Shit in such horrid conditions like there's like cracks. Yes, you can see each other's feet like there's any sort of like air circulation until like others, people shits is like in the air with your shit. It's just. Some of the world is shifting. I mean I. think other countries have like their shit game way more on lock like. Yeah, there's there are some countries that you've to shit outside. But. Were like shit in those countries bus country also if you should outside though. You get a lot more ventilation. Yeah, but then I have to worry about bugs and. Want something, bite my ass. Yeah, but those things you've seen those videos on facebook and on Youtube where there's a snake crawling through the toilet. You never know when you're. GonNa get better. Watch your asses watch. If you learn anything from today's episode, it's. Get a mirror watcher s exactly do we have another question, or is that all the questions I'm feeling? We didn't I usually have a list, but I gotta be honest. I wasn't prepared. What is your most embarrassing art? Oh? Yeah, do you have like a Fart Story to tell? Everyone sort of like colored their their underwear I i. have my heart became one time that happened I was like a family. Had like discreet. I was like probably in my teens.

I was in a band I played a show. I drank an entire bottle of whisky during the show. which was? Horrifying in a high made it through the show. And then it was outdoors, so we were sleeping outside in tent. I ended up in the wrong tense with a friend of mine screaming I was lonely and then another friend found me. Down the street, aside like a mile away sitting in the roof and then when he found me, I had shit my. My God. Embarrassment you. How's that? Not Your parents most embarrassing.

I know all you ladies out. There have experienced when a man waves that you while you're driving down the road. Don't do guys don't do it? Don't do it so number one. It makes me feel like I'm about to be followed. Oh, I'm not trying to follow. I think instantly my first thought is he's GonNa Follow. Me Home God he's GonNa. Murder Me. I'm going to die, and then I think if I could wreck my car to get away from him. Because then the police would come, then he can't Palmy home so then I've just got into a lot of cracks. Man Waves at me reckless cars, but This particular man today. Of a driving tobacco's House and I was just cruising along, just minded my own business pretending. I knew a song I didn't know that's all. I was doing nothing to terrorists. And this man I can feel him. I can feel him staring at me as he's keeping pace with me, no. I hate that he was like he was keeping his truck next to my car. O So and kept looking over, and I could see it. I could just like feel it and see it and I was just like. What do you do? What do you do? What do you do and I? Just like looked over, and I was trying to give a nasty like fuck off look, but then he just waves at me like high. No. No Sir. What are you? What are we? GonNa do pull over exchange numbers in having. That happened on the highway before, and that made me feel even more weird. I've never felt so relieved that somebody got off the highway, but like. Do it so creepy! It's just creepy. If you WANNA be creepy, you just post an ad on craigslist like every other creeper, but it's just like number one. You know you're not paying attention to the Road Sir if you reckon to my car I will get out. I will stab you. Trying to play these games with you, just because you WANNA wave at someone on the road, yeah, so then I just went fast I sped. Just sped up, I was like eat my dust. I can go eighty I. don't care. A COP pulls me over Mamere speeding turning away from this man that was leaving. He's trying to molest me through my car. You don't understand. That happened to me not long ago, so a stopped out of stop light, and I could feel the man in the car next to me. Just looking at me like I could see his shot like I could see him looking at me, but I'm not I'm not gonNA. Look? I'm not engaging in that and I'm you know I'm like come on light turn green turn green is not turning green. He Rolls Down his window and I'm like. Fuck fuck fuck and I realize. It's my husband. So. I was like I'm not even GONNA look. I'M NOT GONNA look. He was like you were really. Looking at me knows like I. Didn't know what was you? I get scared. I was like man's drink only and that's how I felt. Is that I was about to be murdered on the road. Thanks for not murdering my friends so don't do that. Men Men men. Do that don't do that rude. It's scary, my one set. My Bitch of the week has to do with like a personal. Like US fault one of my faults and that is that I don't WanNA influence my friends too much and influence. Makes it sound Nice, but what I'm trying to say, is I don't want to force them to feel away. Like for example. I was forcing brandy. Not Brandy Jackie the like someone. So hard same exact thing currently like i. just need to back Kokov but I also really want my friends to have fun and I WANNA be a part of their funds, so mike deal with the thing and then i. just feel like my forcing my friends to do things. They don't WanNa do because I want them to do things, and so I kind of like an outside rapist I know. I, I'm not proud of it. It's just like I WANNA be a part of it like I want to be. A part of the fun, but like not I don't want to be in the fun. I just want to hear about the phone. Sounds like you WanNa be in the fun. Oh come down so I just feel bad, because I know that that's like a fault. Clearly, it's something I've been dealing with. Fifteen so only fifteen years later, and I still can't get over it so I just need to just like back the fuck off of my friends. You know just let your friends live their lives. I know but like I want them to have fun and so just need to calm down and just trust the. They'll have fun on their own time. Do you know what I mean I you mean, but at the same time. Sometimes it's not a bad thing, and just I guess it's dependent on the friend I know this isn't about me, so no totally not about y'all I'm not worried about it. an hour looking for a specific baton. and. It's going really well whereas. No I think it's that one read, yeah. We. Can't figure everything else and hey guys. down. It's not going to. It's going to be a mess. It'll get better. Probably.

I know exactly what i did it. You know okay is the show. Hey guys ready. Are we up and running headphones on. It looks weird veered guys. We're we're up and running. It's episode one. Zero five of adjust the mic to my right. The hostess with the most is miscount. Geyser or howdy doody everybody a hair that into my left the craft beer queen. Welcome back miss colleen thanks. I'm much better good. Down yonder yonder yonder. Yonder is the milky way mandingo liking little. Chris out what's up guys and joining us as always is charles incharge guys. What's up. Hey i really want to open up scott towse. And how many scots bone of this podcast. All and you know. He always wants to talk about magic basketball. Go so. I have a couple of headlines. Decide saw this the magic football team right. Can we get another shot. Startling magic basketball sports bowl a goatee. This is the first one i found. This is from Before the draft lottery got twitter in an open letter from orlando magic fans to the nba draft lottery. God's magic desperately need a lucky bounce in tuesday's nba draft lottery just a headline okay. So then i go a little bit more. We'll google and the next headline is the draft lottery. Just another l. for the orlando magic. Last night's disappointment was a sharp reminder that it's a long way back for the magic. Okay so then another. The last headline i got was orlando magic at number five and number eight picks in the two thousand twenty one. Nba draft lottery. Jeff weltman looked like he was about to cry. Now is scott. Can we break down. How like we're not talking about the magic today. Who's who's jeff welshman cutting all this out. I really don't know who that guy many. Why is he crying owner. He's the. He's the jim jim before you go into this now. We talked about the fathers day spectacular. Special that we had that i got this shaquille o'neal stand up and we had mentioned and you said you were going to bring him to your draft lottery. Torture told stan told. All of the good luck told the podcast to listeners. Everybody else bring a range. You didn't and he was too tall to fit the back of my truck. Well bend in his neck. Tried to put like. I know you car costs you. The number one pick in the draft. Not taking him way. I think it did. I mean we can. We can go. We can be all like you know. They have to picks in the top ten. Why is it shitty okay because we want to cater or jalen green. There's to certain people you know that could be have star potential leader. We need like a legitimate like bad ass scoring you know. Hey tell him. Kate him the guy and then if we couldn't get the first pick we just wanted to make sure we're at least top three with that pick and that we would keep our uh top three would be great and you're great. You're supposed to get top three. Toronto and cleveland jumped us the bull speak and number eight so we got that picks them up his trade now clear if chicago would moved up in the top. You know to get the number one pick. We a lost that pick and move back spot so we could have picked his latest six in not had an eighth pick so we gotta fit in eighth well but that fifth it puts us where we we've been fifth so fuck. There's a video on twitter as someone took off the last like five or six grass and it looks at the looks on whoever's at the draft space when they get the fifth or sixth pick and the only time we got the second pick is when we got depot which we didn't manage that situation trade day traded him. We don't do a lot of good things get their one year the pirates he drafted some guy named mario or zone. Yeah who played like three amazing games to start had all this hope and then our coaching staff got a hold of stuff. That you're good at devon devon booker. Last night had a huge game yeah he would have been really good on that you guys could have had been fantastic did draft but we did not draft. So were you guys know. I don't know much about basketball specifically but it was. I was under the impression from last week's episode that the worst game. Excuse me the worst team got the number one graphic. So why did you guys get the number one draft. It's not it doesn't work that way. it's a lottery just ping pong ball and we. We were tied. We didn't have the worst record. But you're either third worst record but we were tied with a fourteen percent chance of getting the number one. Pick and What happened is we had a twenty six percent chance to get to number five pick and pretty much. The average worked out right. Except for cleveland and toronto. Who moved up in detroit. Got the number one did. Oh well listen. We're really sorry but we do want to talk about the magic as much as possible tonight. Okay okay so what else any harm me. Talking to be. Our guy probably we. Haven't we have some good possibilities here. We have a really good young core. Rj hampton really hoya anthony. They all have sneaker lines or you don't have a new. I don't know. I judge basketball players by their sneaker lines. They don't have one but now the nc double a. is to allowing the players to make money off the image. I mean some of these guys are gonna get paid now. What was it college basketball. I guess college sports. I mean that was a big supreme court ruling. Wasn't it were. They ruled against the. Ncaa said you are overstepping your bounds limiting college players from being able to earn income from other sources so i did not realize they could earn income off their thing. I thought it was more like they were able to. Yeah they'd never now now. The law hasn't been placed yet. But it's gonna be like it's now it's been ruled on so now they got all right. I thought it was like they had to get. They could still if they got hurt still get. Their college scholarships get education. Get this and that. I didn't know that they actually make money off their images about like this. Whatever the college basketball like playstation games and stuff. They scan these guys. These college kids their likeness down to the pimples. Basically right it. They don't make shit off of their like this being sold hundreds of millions of dollars right so now rahman cut other finally getting to cut. I think that's only fair. And and let's say you know you're going to get a scholarship list but you can use your to is going to be eventually held pro. I'm just assuming here but that probably how it's gonna be because the ncaa they're not going to totally get rid of their use of these players still gonna get their cut. We can't play our team. Otherwise there'll be somebody to be able to market you but you can market yourself as a as long as it's within a you know a respectable marketing ploy that puts a good image on the rally. The argument was always close. Anyway don't pay the kids. they're getting a free education. Some yeah the kids. they're no longer student athletes. They're professionals because they're getting paid for it right so it's still it's really there's a lot. There's a lot of professionals who go to college too. Yeah so what's the difference. They put their bodies on the line. They're professional day could literally get hurt and it doesn't matter their education. They could not do anything. I don't even have to go to college anymore. You just go to the g. league and if you're good enough to hack it there you can get drafted the next year. Yeah but now. That's what coming today in. Two thousand sixteen the ncwa maiden nine hundred ninety five point nine million dollars so the kids don't need to get paid right. No no fucking joke. So now will they be able to get endorsement deals but like nike and adidas. And and that's what's gonna be. Obviously i think that is but it's probably going to be what's going to be getting worked out like there's gonna be a lot of unknowns until it kind of unfolded like will the teams boosters be able to directly. Pay these guys these kids. I think it's the same answer. Yeah there's just they just don't think that that ruling is just a supreme court ruling but it does nothing laid out as far as how it's gonna look yet f enough at least as far as my knowledge and you're dealing with hundreds and hundreds of billionaires and millionaires. Yes yep they're gonna they're gonna make this a long time before to change actually takes that course just like when locate if we'd gives legalize an estate if that state doesn't want to legalize it immediately they can push paper. Push it you know. I mean florida did it for a long time. Yeah to came in and kinda but it's still federal leads still. That's why people can you know push in just with any you know rolling. That's the key distinction. Doubt which is why it's not more widespread. Because of that. Federal prohibition well just like we talked about that story with the teacher here soon if i get injured on the job or hurt myself. I have a prescription for marijuana. I lose my job. Same here there was a teacher. We talked about it on the show. It's very common. But what's happening is yeah. It's not fair like there's a video out there from these scientists and talk about all of the items that have ever been illegal in a nation like in the united states and how it looks when it becomes legal into a certain amount of state wants a certain amount of state tips usually within one year becomes federally legal. Same thing have a prohibition year we look at. I don't know research but as far as white talking about this your call. I got nothing even interesting. Why are we talking about is. You're on a podcast. No well you look. At countries like denmark decriminalized possession of everything in crime rates have took a year but crime rates have based kills limited the mexican mafia. And all that right out of business. That's how you take the those cartels out of business by decriminalizing it across the board but in in opinion when do you think it'll be federally legal. I'd give it another four. Five years probably may be less. It could be by the end of the administration. it could be the next administration. it's happening though because what what's even when you look at the stock markets and stuff. There certain there's certain buyouts happening from a metal on the medical side. Yeah they're starting to kinda gobble up and starting to turn their corporations than big dogs. They're starting to get you know. All these Storefronts fill their everywhere. Okay and they're getting all their dotting. Their is crossing their t's they gotta get the financial how they're going to tax it. How it's gonna the money's gonna flow in right now and all these a lot of these places and i think some of the laws have changed but for a long time the banks wouldn't take these southeast companies your company but you're working straight cash so you're hiring security you're hiring all these different things to protect your money at least unique ways. You're having to deal so the profit margins aren't there yet for these new companies. They're kind of the groundbreaking right there. Kind of figuring out and making all the mistakes and really smart people. That don't give a shit about smoking weed. Jon morgan. businessmen are looking at this. And they're saying this is going to be a gold mine in there watching all this and when that time comes you're gonna see like just justice influx of crazy amounts of marijuana. Can i ask because i make ignorant about this. What makes colorado so different from florida government. Their local government. Your god's all it did you had enough people. It's all local. Who wanted it to happen in colorado specifics. Yet you know towns denver right. Don't for being real big hippie enclaves and when you have enough people that want specific thing. The politicians just can't say no at that point because they'll say okay. They vote against this. I will lose my spot in the next election so democratic states. You know if you're a red state or a blue state of the state normally votes that way and they usually vote people in that are like them to vote for what they want and denver was just had a really progressive guy that was willing to fight the fight. It just like with anything. Whoever's willing to fight the fight is going to it takes months prevail and it does take a lot of money but you see the thing is it will be federally legal as soon as big money decides that okay. We wanna illness. We know we finally figured out that we can make like like you just said that this is a gold mine and as soon as big money starts throwing money at lobbyists done is as good as done. I give it. It won't be under biden's term because he's already come out and said that he's against Making it federally legal. So as he really. Yeah so it would and it won't be a republican either because like you understand it when he said it won't be republican either because it's been typically something that they are not for because for whatever reason so it will be the next democratic president. That's not biden. I think that's what it's going to be. I can see a republican future republican president. Making it illegal because it's a business decision and it's becoming we're going to be going through some hard core. Inflation here. coming up. Went went when when we have a pressure point and we need to compete in when money talks money talks in every business when money starts really talking on the marijuana side and the right people get behind it. And there's more and more flippant all the time okay when that fully happens it just it just all of a sudden you're going to see a bill it's gonna come through his probably to go through kind of quietly and boom. Were all going to hear about. It's going to be something that kind of comes through. it's like on a on a whim. Boom every release it. It'd be a big deal it'll be it'll happen same days off the port the video and i'll throw it up on our group page. Everybody you know if any of you are listening who carry anything about this. There's there's a video and it shows the time line or the process that happens. It's like one st koh's legal in there's all kinds of different chemicals in weird things that were illegal at one point fair not anymore and usually. It's one st in two states in four states. An eight state sixteen states like a magic number. It's like the twenty seven or thirty states or something like that and boom within like a year or so Congress has enough power now to push it through other president. You know push it might be the best wholesale push because money. Who's got then. When when the right sal message behind it was with the right message binding goes. Yeah and that's going to be. It's going to be a sentiment time. I think it's a it's not a matter of if but a matter of been even presidents says i'm against this and then a year later signs of the nets totally the opposite. Why god new information and now. I see that it's more important for me to worry about their. So we'll see is marijuana bad for you. The devil's lettuce. That's what its nicknamed the wacky tabacchi. Anything can be bad for you any everything much. Anything is bad for you or cookie cutter. i've been looking for been harder to get. It's easy vieira. Do they have adult market. All the time crunchy slow right. Crunchy world-market veer talked louis on your leg. Hey this is totally random but did you guys see that story about casey anthony. Lately south florida yes. She had to call the police because somebody got in a fight with her at a bar and she's actually dating at cop thinking i'm like man like as guys and you meet he's casey anthony and you know that she let's face it.

Let's see what she looks like now. Oh sure she's so cute as how apparently she works out a lot and she's got real fit and like she hangs out this same place and i'm just thinking. Oh my god guys are actually willing to date this check. Dude if casey anthony. You need to move to like latvia or something like that where they don't have the internet yet. 'cause could you imagine this shit. Look she gets even just going grocery shopping. Yeah you know. That's i mean. Like when i see somebody that looks like her. I'm like that bitch. Will casey anthony saw her. Dad had a booth that they told the flea market sell an rc. Car part so. I ran into him randomly like a year after all. That shit went down freely. Why do you.

There's all kinds of true crime documentaries and stuff that go through. They've got her daughter. Yes i think she purposely did it two hundred. I think she wanted to go in party. She used chloroform to get her daughter to go to sleep and kills her. But wasn't she found innocent. Quarter law. no no. She wasn't oj yes he was so thank. He's say was probably an accident. She doing this as the routine to get her. Poor little girl to go to sleep at this overdid at one time and then you know the worst habit but she was found innocent. Can't outta here listen. They just didn't have enough proof. That i i don't even understand how it happened. Honestly it was. All all of the evidence was circumstantial. I'm just trying to help the d this danger. She's the girl was found in tot cordella. Are all the bad things a woman could do. Just in general you can murder somebody you could but murdering a child is that or even you know man whatever by accident whatever is that the worst thing is probably the worst do. Yeah that or not turning the ac down before you go to bed. Ooh yeah. knock that thing. It's so weird. How people are just attracted that 'cause like look at ted bundy. Efg was talking about her. Like scott that's it right there if she was like if she didn't look the way she looked. Nobody's talking about her job. How she making money like how. She had a lot of money in a book deals. No she did is she had to pay all that time. Almost pay that out and she makes no money because she does it. One money and like restitution. There was a private. There was a civil suit by zanny. The nanny that she lost a ton of money to and all that does is weird because that was just the name that she saw on a guestbook when she was like looking for an apartment to move into and she thought i mean it could have been. I know guys are on that you know hands right now is making it right now. It says she's worth eight hundred thousand dollars. That's impartial no talks with a million. How much do you think people pay to come talk to you about. will you. what went through. Especially when you're innocent when you get done innocent of the morals all the more you don't know you think it might be released. It might not be released for twenty years. They might wait a long time before they released ship. Because there's bad there's bad mojo on that ship you lock in those deals early. People get book deals ten years before they tell the story. It's a lotta times. Sometimes they get the book deal on when it happens com blue. I'm just saying she was crazy. Found innocence crazy. So outta here charlie. How many innocent guys you. You know a lot a lot and aren't in prison a lot. You're innocent fellow in. Oh not not a lot. No sundays happen to happens. You know there's a league. Yeah there's a lot. There's a lot of mistakes out there when there's a human involved. There's a margin of human error involved. We'll see anything. That's the real trick is life in convicting. Somebody is getting past that reasonable. Doubt thing right. And that's what the defense lawyers were really good at by saying it could have been xyz but it probably wasn't because of abc and they they so that doubt into the jury's minds that even if one person it has to be unanimous guilty right it all it takes us to convince one person that well there is a chance to gail mockingbird right right the read that book or watched that movie in i mean in any courtroom anytime you can have like certain Strong willed people that can change your mind or are you could be a weak minded person at a juror selection. People did not figure out that you'll change in sometimes. There's deep ways that people know who those people are when they asked him. Those certain questions you know. I mean jury selections kind of shady deal as well. It can be dressed. As i can on all different ways on jari i can give you can get to. I need to retire. I can get into some things that would off this microphone. Blow your fucking mind about the judicial system. Yeah like it's fucking terrifying and it's just like it's a broken system i it it really is. And there's we're starting to reach to maybe all the tapping in the last year will help a little bit. But it's so fucking deeper than that well look at the guy's not about race or religion or i. It's about the the whole umbrella. this is broken right. you know it is. It's we'll talk off the might. Do you remember a deputy barbara pill that was shot in the face. You just got to a life because they had. The instructions were communicates jury incorrectly terrible. And that's all it took for the death valley now. They could have read sentenced him but the the went to the family and the famous. We don't want wanna go through this. Can i prison one word answer. Are you in favor of the death penalty. Scott just are you in favour felt. Yeah hell yeah calling. it's hard man. Nobody really me. Sometimes you think think putting somebody to death puts them out of their misery of having to deal with the fact that every day now there are some people that they don't think like that but there's other people that when they do this they feel so guilty that they were gonna have to live with either man. I think differently. I think about this. I think about the risk of keeping a human alive. That does that type of stuff. That's for me. Yeah no you're right now. No and i know know nothing. No right or wrong i respect. I know. I know you're not and i'm very mixed on it. You know i have reasons why kind of understand it. But then. If i'm going deep down ultimately do i feel like you know in the in the best society. We should have to have to do that. You're what i'm saying. They're ultimately no. But i respect and understand why it is in place and if some Like hardcore anti death sentence person came attacking me. I wouldn't argue with them. Might have nothing to really argue. Understand what you're saying too. But now seven and a half years ago i had a completely different stance on it. Like in this was before stellar. I thought that it was unnecessary. That there are. Beth is of rehabilitation in a severe enough crime. You know a life sentence you're gonna die in prison is good enough but then you know you get to thinking it's like well. What if somebody did something bad to sell. It is like what. I want the death penalty for that person. And i'm like yeah absolutely another do it. Or i'm gonna get myself in and i'm gonna do it. Yeah that's another. But and i agree with that on mayan like something with my children or my family or the people i love because that's about us then to yes proportionally. You need to know what i'm saying is the risk of keeping some of those fucking animal in their animals. Do live to hurt somebody or just not worth it for me. That's just my personal opinion. I've been thinking that. Rachel hallberg out. I've been listening to a lot of true crime. Podcast and some of these ones are so vivid in their description of these crimes. That i just can't listen to. I gotta stop right especially when it involves kids but when you hear these stories about what these monsters due to these people s you've forfeited your right to live after what you've done and put all these people share all these communities through read the guy who killed read her fiance. That guy deserves the death penalty. He won't because not only did you kill your fiance. The one person that was supposed to trust you implicitly but you broke the hearts of an entire community right. There's no coming back from that. Yeah sure you could spend the rest of your life in prison but you deserve to die for doing that. There's a lot of people in prison for accidental deaths or this or if it fits of rage or just snap you know. There's that but the hills that he was on a bunch of drugs that i don't agree with but these highly thought out into the intent that you know if they're putting situation off on they will they will for third time one hundred percent but do it again. Yeah and they will i. That's when they put people to death that like i. I don't know you just watch some of these things that show on. Hbo really fucked me up with some like you know you see these people that made these mistakes because they were fucked up on drugs or they were in a bad situation or even if they killed somebody like in somewhat self defense but they still get the death penalty and you're watching them go through this and you're like oh come on but they make harsh decisions like that. And they're like they get put to death. It's not like ted bundy. Who gets joy off of killing him or the fricken son of sam killer who just killing people for no reason people deserve to die but the ones that's like situational words like they were. What about like these young girls who get get in these situations with men who are abusing them daily. They can't escape then. They have no other choice and they kill them and death penalties on the table and they're still in jail now the literal literal predators in this world that if the chance is given to them. That's exactly what they're gonna be They they there's no need for that to be in this world now like with scott. He don't agree. I i respect that. I'd like i really respect that. But that's just i feel differently about remember even feel like it's unrealistic. Almost you know what i'm saying because like in a in a best world top we'd say that data that's not going to happen. It's always probably going to be there in some way. Shouldn't be paraded like it was neil days where the whole fucking town comes out. Finally shit like braveheart. Yeah we should go hardcore that right. We know this. Or you know this we're more civilized than this and now there's you know there's but we're not other ways no you're right we're not we're we're marketed. Huterer marketed differently. So i just got a jury notice for a federal jury. And i have to fill out a bunch of staff to possibly be on it and it's all the way on land. It's like you need to fill out this paperwork. And i'm like no he's like you have to have to fill this out. I'm like man. There's no way they're going to pick me now. Because it's like dude. I got kids. I'm workin like you can say that. And i will hardship debt courthouses out there by the orlando arena every day. But then you think about the the people on the casey anthony case. oj case. There's such a huge decision lying on you. And i know from the one jury case that i was on. If there's even that question doesn't think like this whole decision relies on me. I don't wanna live this for the rest of my life. If it comes out that i made the wrong decision. So i can get how they would err on caution but but you know what to get you out of that. Don't think like that because you have two sides telling a story of how year going to view it so it's not number four one hundred percent on you in the jury like you're being manipulated. The whole judicial system is how people are going to manipulate each other. Right come up with a verdict. That's the problem. That one person lying parking matt taibbi goes deep down. He's a he's a reporter. He goes deep down until the dark. You know I just the way a courtroom courthouses especially the ones with your petty criminals and petty thefts and your petty traffic violations. And all this kind of stuff or do these these defense attorneys these. You know your public defenders and everything the way that whole system works when you deep down. They're all in. They're all trying to get in amount of work. They're all trying to kind of meet their quota for the day. Do this or trying to get in and out. And there's no really emotion behind what they're doing and they're affecting people's lives time after time but they're numb to it because that's what they do every day right and it and what happens is is corruption seeps in to that situation and there's a dude there's a lot of crimes in a lot of Circles debt young people in ghettos in poor areas. Not just an any poor air whether you're in the city year. You're in a suburb. If you're in a poor area and you have cops that are always kind of on top of you right and you're kind of getting you know you're them. Yeah you're getting in that system. The wires system kind of works against you in a way because then there's the fines and the fees. And if you don't have a good job to pay those fines and fees and of course you end up just flipping through. And then they confiscate things from you and they keep those things they can auction knows. They can generate money. They can veto. They invite him. He get violation of probation. Just by not so anything. You're stuck in the circle and then if you don't handle it just the right way you're fucked for a long time and it could just change your whole persona and feel on everybody's out against you and it just breeds a negative situation. We have to attack things from that level just in a different way. I'm not saying. Give a shout out. Kim kardashian her way no joke. she's making a huge shoot us making change with that good for her but i think there was a big change in the eighties with a the war on drugs and then be allowing a for profit prison system to come about oil accepted those two things right there contribute to probably pull a number out of my ass but at least half of all arrest right now are low level drug offenses. Yeah i read it once you get into the system. It's hard to get out of that hole. Private prison thing that is watch we just knew. Black republicans are against it. Democrats are against it at like. They've basically shut it all out of florida california's a problem. Oregon's a problem The dogs one thing that in. Yeah that's one of the things that politicians agree on like. That's coming in it it. It's come within this year. Two that's going to be a thing because what happens. Is these private prisons. Pay these judges like there was a judge who was who was arrested and sentenced to like twenty five years or some shit like that by he had a deal with one local prisons that every poor little black. They came in before him in front of you for a first offence. You had a you know evacuate. All you're right would throw the book at them to make sure that he got the maximum time in prison. Basically funneling in slowing in all these offers as it kickback. Getting paid by the guitar. That's how can we take to fucking you. Got it all these headlines. The larry so. I wanna read a headline real florida and charged with breach of peace after allegedly threatening. Unleash turtle army on. The public. Disrupting a police station and cursing at seven eleven. Customers wonder what kind of turtles you've got. The turtle army did a turtle on how that's such a good or ninja shredder. Change me initiative. Now i gotta ask you a question. would you rather like florida woman. Steals lobster curses out staff at red lobster. Now if you were hanging out with somebody and they ran in and just stole after in ran out. How would that make you feel. You're on your own pal. You'd laugh right like you'd want to hang out with somebody that you don't wanna party misdemeanor theft forte. They had some turtles story and putting it off to the side or redone with no just j- just some quick florida headlines. Okay okay okay. Come on dig in charge with disorderly. Intoxication after allegedly shoveling spaghetti into his face and threatening supplement a second so shoving spaghetti and his own face. Yeah yelling employees. I can see. Those are the best headlines i could find. So he's screaming threaten the restaurant employee. Who asked him to stop saying. I beat your ass mouthful spaghetti. All these people know each other. It's probably pretty good man. Hey weird stuff happens Definitely definitely have the same spirit animal when the employees went back outside to call the police. The guy reportedly followed the employees inside and then asked what kind of genitals he had a bad day. And god bless you florida when the cops showed up. He was sitting on the bench near the front door shirtless and showing spaghetti. And i mean we got. You gotta eat right great on. What are you doing it like when you go. Hard into pain. For multiple days in your. You're in it spaghetti. Lose all reality of what's happening crazy. Yeah hey can we talk real quick. About what happened to travis last week. Yes yes we hit. We hit on and on sunday so saturday. Okay this guy comes in. I haven't seen him since before. Covid needed name. Also his name was danny. he he used to come in time. He really liked jim a lot. Now this guy courses always paid in two dollar bills. I'm talking to matter of his tab with sixty heard. You taste always paid in two dollar bills. The older fellow very strange. No probably say mitchell okay. He's he's a bigger black fellow. You know he's he seems very he's always been kind to me because when i'm working with jim no issues but this time things were a little off. He came in. He literally sat at the bar. Had to tupperware's open them up certain eating some sandwiches he made. Then he pulled out. Some par phase started eating simplisafe's. That's random talking to travis. Normal people bring their own food up there sometimes. You have told them since kitchens closed that you can bring your own food and it's never been food that they have prepared themselves in tupperware's up sheet time. That was the first time i've seen. Well we do have one couple that brings sharpshooter stuff all the time. But that's totally different. Because they bring stuff for me jim gluten free stuff and meats and cheeses and they bring their own but this was like he brought his lunch. He's eating it. He was being real cool. The place actually got really busy. 'cause we had a wedding party come in so we had like thirty people come in at four thirty on thursday. So the guy was asking travis. Questions travis answered like he normally does he wasn't like overly friendly but that's not travis's style monotone business. Very kurt takes care of business. You always had a a beard like that in travis's like i've had a lot of facial hair you know he goes on and on the guy left for and he's like i gotta go check the meter real quick and make sure i'm okay. I'll be right back. And i'm like what meter this titusville meters downtown. So he comes back. This is chad is tab. He leaves i see him walking out the door pause that he pay the tab with two bills no no and he didn't pay the credit card. Pay cash tip. He only had two beers. He tipped travis very well. I didn't have to wait on him. Because i was waiting on. This big party. Travis was handling var so when the guy was leaving. I was like have a good one to me. I will and i'm like a little strange but people are stranger coming. You know so. Travis like calling. You will not believe that. I just gave me he goes. Here's a dollar bill. I thought there was drugs in their. The second handed me i was like i don't even need to look. I know this is a bullet. I could feel the weight and i was like. He handed you a bullet. What is this media's. I don't know but he said hope to see you later and travel show shrugs off. I'm like travis. This is a problem. Like i don't know this guy. Besides him coming in a long time ago who knows what tavern bills and shit has changed. So i immediately been hard. I like when we're drawer bills. I sent a text to john. Who's our gm from brixton stuff. And i was like jessica. If you had travis as worried. I feel like i should be worried. I just want to. You know what happened but this is very strange and you know trash to blow it off but the more people like i talked to that were friends. Were like this. Isn't it'd be concerned with. But then travis tells me he's like i was like you need a ride home tonight. He's like. I'm going to ride my bike. Home kidding me right now dude. Like he can't be around palm trees. There's a lot of things you know that happened to him. Oh my god. Y'all don't wanna know what happened to them the night before. Who comfortable did he report that to the authorities though he didn't want to why not. That's a death threat. Well there's enough on record so the not. He just got done telling me when this happened. A story about the night before. When he's working at whiskeys and this girl came in and she's kinda hitting on him and he's like well you do look familiar and she looks at him dead straight in the face and she's like do you watch cake fart porn.

George and goes reporting for duty for the monday show here on monday august sixteenth to win the recording a little bit earlier but we to get ahead of it so we can get this in the hands of most people of our worldwide audience. Lots to discuss today. Tor to sixty four took place on friday. Pf l. twenty twenty one week seven. That's how it's officially referred to. It also took place on the same night for crying out loud plus lots of newsday discussed in the world mixed martial arts including some really sad news When it comes to women's More specifically page transplant. Something that goes had alerted to me to earlier today. Really sad to hear what she's been going through. And of course Jake paul added again. Is that hitless with mike. Thirteen names on it. Gotta bring him. Up chad mendez. Telling us not not specifically but jon morgan. Our colleague why he decided to go to knuckle instead of basically kept it. Simple maze is more dangerous than that's kinda what helped him convinces wife belong time. Wc n. you have see. Featherweight is back. So buckle up junky nation. We're going to be with you here. A little early for this monday episode. But we're going to be with your ear for a while talking about this rates. Boorda mixed martial arts lots to discuss. Start with the recaps of the big events from this past. Friday was insured. We had to go away for ten seconds deadly. That's more of a. Oh it is okay. I thought that that ties in everything. We got the audio world in the video world. They come together so there's a lot of moving parts when it comes to this this show but here we got let's talk some mixed martial arts goes lipa coin fell bell tour what do you want buffers ch pf l. All right pf l. week. No twenty twenty one week seven. This is the first week of the playoffs. And there's basically straight to the semifinals the world quarterfinals and semifinals. In one night there were no quarterfinals at all. It was just semi finals. Remember only four four fighters from each division. Each way class moved to these play offs. Now i think some of it had to do with the fact that in fact i'm pretty positive from what i from. Whatever head and heard it had to do with the pandemic just when they were forecasting at the beginning of the year the year my look like getting a commission to approve the two fights one night was just going to be a lot with sports slowly coming back and so many moving parts at the time. You got alternates when they first started dealing with all this men as yet like seventeen days quarantines what they wanted to do was they wanted to basically try something different. They've been brought up the finals of the playoffs of a few months from december thirty. First talk tober twenty seven. So that's why it's of been a little bit of a different schedule and hope it doesn't throw people off but roy mcdonald is out for example in the main event loss rate grouper. That's it there was no second fight. There was no double elimination. He's out he's not competing for a million dollars right groupers. Congratulations to him. But yeah there was no will now. Who does ray cooper fight again. None of that and they may bring that back next year. We'll see. But i think people basically went with a different time reschedule and they made the best decisions possible when they started coming up with the season. So that's why that took place the way it did. So four welterweight spot ray cooper defeated roy mcdonald and model mid markle amalgamated. Karimov defeated seibu c. d. finals on october twenty seventh in florida. Not at mandalay. Bay in las vegas dammit. The finals will involved cooper versus mabul Naga made kerimov Goes let's start off with mugabe mobile mid kerimov. He defeated sambu c. Three round decision Were you impressed. do you think him. And cooper or the two best welterweight and that they should meet and finance gary. I think they are there The thing the thing is you kind of just expected that to happen I wanna say with salvador like he's been in this position before but i don't wanna say he's one dimensional. He's a good fighter but we all kind of know what his kryptonite is right and so it was. It was to be expected but the thing is the guy can be explosive from time to time. And i'll be one of the. I admit actually better them because i think he's a decent fighter but the odds wasn't really dictating. That actually bet saba do. It didn't work out. But i don't know what they're gonna do next year because i think he's just to that point where he's proven. Maybe this isn't for him that one kick. You're telling me about that. I missed it was like it's so sad that One move can just completely stifle your whole round. You know no answer for that and the same time. You can't blame magomed karimov. You can blame more. See for going there you know and allowing whether it was a kick a knee tripping over your own two feet slipping on a banana peel. Whatever it was his fault an end it just takes the wind out of a fight. Takes the air out of a fight. Sometimes there's so many strikers that make it very difficult for the rest of the take them down and then it becomes more of a strike match. It's not that i'm pro. Kickboxing pro boxing. Most fans are. But i just want to see the fight. Contested in different aspects of remain and the dagestani fighters the russian fighters lot of the fighters eastern. Europe are just really really good at when they get you down. That's it cancelled for christmas ten nine. You better pray. It's not a eight and that's exactly what happened I'm starting to see that. Even though a lot of strikers are very difficult to take down or keep down. It's because they work at it goes and to me. There are certain fighters that just like they don't even work at it right away get taken down and they'll close guard and then their motions in in getting up they just don't appear to be there you know and i don't know it's a little bit disappointing like saturday busey wasn't supposed to be that he was the number five guy. It was john suffering. No so i'm not saying that he had let's say the best possible scenario but still I don't know it was. It was a little bit of a boring fight. To tell you the truth. I just felt like it wasn't karimov. Slot magomed caroline. Fault is opposition. Just wasn't as level and that's that pf l. can't control that. You can't blame the bell matchmaking. Nothing like that. It was out of their hands. This was the match up in that. Was that but it. It sucks because it's almost like a free pass will million dollars. Well you start up the fight with your gas tank full and if you're salvador you're thinking i just gotta be patient. I gotta stay low and hit him with my best shot and what made me. So frustrated was the kick that he threw was lazy. You know that's that's the first thing that you gotta know the students dying for you to do that and you did it again to him and he took you down and some guys can get back up but he couldn't and so by then you look at all right. Well i made it through the round. I can restart at the beginning of round two that gas. Thanks now where it needs to be anymore. This is drained you know. That dude was on top. You beaten on you. For that whole round it's not like you're josie aldo or someone like that right. It's got the savage kicks. it was just. I think it's one that he looks back on. Halloween throw that. I should have put this guy in a tough spot thinking. How am i going to get him. Down what i need to do to get him down instead. He came and gave him a free pass. And that's what was so frustrating about that fight it's literally the equivalent of cheating on your girlfriend or wife and getting caught because you took the other party your site these to you and your girlfriends favorite restaurant which may even happens to have one of your girlfriends relatives working there. What did you expect. Of course we're going to get caught. You know her family owns it works there. She knows that you guys go there. Lot in you were dumb enough to take your side beasley. I mean it's like i say. I i just think that there's so many welterweight that would kill for to be in this type of position battle it out and make the other person. I dunno struggle a little bit for the win. that didn't take place at all Anyone want to spend more time talking about it to this is a rematch of two thousand eighteen. I believe is when gonna macaire defeated. Ray cooper with guillotine. So ray cooper's be chomping at the bit. And ray cooper i just can't say enough about this guy goes roy mcdonald as you know is just good everywhere we you might even say. He's great everywhere. He's not the greatest in anything but he's he's above average something between good and great at pretty much every aspect of But cooper actually make made it look a little easier than i thought i would go. Ray cooper is really under the under appreciated. He doesn't get talked about as much. I'm gonna give this guy series. Look when i'm putting together the rankings for this week we don't have as much to talk about. Because e was involved most rankings of all fighters with Built or guys and gals that not only are ranked but they do get considered they. Are you know. They're on the radar. Cooper's definitely one of them especially with this win but i. I really don't think it was so much mcdonald. Not fighting. well. I think cooper's just really really a good fighter. I mean when he wants to take you down. He puts everything into his wrestling. He seems to have addressed this cardio. he hits hard. He's focused as heck That guy's intense. you know. Say what you will you know. He doesn't look like the type of guy that you know you wanna to go bowling with or to a football game. He just doesn't talk much. Seems like he only eats reason sleeps friends. Go to rams charger game. You might wanna take him with you. Yeah but He got the job. Done man kudos array cooper his whole family. The little entourage that they managed to bring to hollywood florida. I really really taken a into. This guy is one of my favorite. Pf l. fires he I think in that. Not fight at think roy mcdonald was taken back at just how a dedicated ray was everything he was trying to do. Like you had zero fear. And i know every fighter in the world is going to say that going into a fight but you can tell when guys tentative and ray cooper wasn't from the beginning it was him he said i'm going to put my game plan to work and rory just had no answers for him. And you're right about ray cooper. He is undervalued in our sport. Part of it's his fault because he doesn't really say much but after a while your performances in the cage speak for themselves and he's in the position to do this again in your right. It's kinda like at first. He kinda think like. Hey rick cooper's good guy for the pf l. but i think this last night kind of proved no. It's either good fighter for may like louis welterweight overall. He is a good fighter. he really is. He's somebody that. I think the the pf l. is going to have to try to protect but Begat great performance for him in roy mcdonald. I'm going to share with george attacks. I got from one of our listeners. Galley from toronto. I thought it was a great question. But he said with peres mcdonald verdun. They all went one in five when you think about it. And so what he was asking was. Do you think the pe- nfl. In your opinion who benefitted benefitted more from their signings was it the pf l. taking the risk and saying hey we're trying to stack our division But just to show you how talented it already was. Look what these guys did to some of these new signings or do you think. Do you have ceased sitting back going man. We we got rid some deadweight or bela tor And i i started thinking about it. Like if i'm race. Oh i don't know how i look at that situation. I really don't is. He's right one five. Probably not great. Roy mcdonald was fun. I tuned in to vol this year. More because roy mcdonald there it just so happens. That guys like rake. Cooper one meal were in the process. I tuned in to see anthony pettis but clay. Allard won me over right so it is really really weird man but but the efl is really really take making a move. I think on delatour well. I'm sure galley wants an answer. But i can't give them one. Because i i don't see why both can't be right i think. Pf l. was probably i think fell saw the benefits in their marketing on especially now that they got the dip their toll in the big. Espn as well as espn two. And the come in with either that pedestal mcdonald. Those names have value so promoted. Well for them but it also put their guys over you know now. Would they have preferred that all three. Make it to the finals. I don't. I don't know if the perfect scenario is all three or maybe two of the three because the lesson in look our guys are pretty good was in the back that third free agents loss now it also costs a lot of money or those those free agents to come over but like i say i. I think there was some benefits to them. Even coming over an losing i dig. It would have been a hybrid of the two to win one of losers with verdun dotty loss of fight. I'll be honest with you to head the big dude on it getting overturned like it shouldn't have i don't think Did and then he got injured. So now you have. What macdonald pettus Pettus spot well in the second by it was exciting but it came up a bit short. I think his he's a little bit of saturday busey in a way except he's got a better ground game from the bottom but the ground game from the bottom just doesn't seem to play as much as it used to. So it's almost like that skill is is to have in your back pocket if you can come up against someone that can defend it but most people are defending that position. And when roy mcdonald i thought he got robbed against abou- So he could have been to. One against ray cooper look came up against the biggest force in all the pf l. or or maybe one of the top two or three forces in all appeal. I think both parties lawn the free agents got some money. That's why i is going to get a lot of money to fight. You know anderson silva and that's why a lot of these fighters Just marketable they put their names out there at the right time and they'll just forever be super famous and super valuable to a promotion Let's talk about the light division. The lightweight division was also controversial. I mean not that the way was the welterweight division wasn't controversial Were fair but the klay collared fight. Did you brought up. How did that dude lose. I thought he won clearly two rounds and then he lost one round and that was it. So it's not like a Too much of an argument over. Well this round this or that. I just thought he won. Rounds one to clearly in las round three The judges didn't see it that way and so now that rush vio is moving onto the finals and it sucks because i was rooting for college because of the pets thing because of his brother. That's sad story. I have nothing against Vio price guy. I think he's got an interesting stories. Well he was working cleaning offices in any combs in part of the piano and Five million dollars hating on it. But i just thought the right call would have been for a caller to get that decision. That was a couple of controversial decisions this weekend. That was one of the other one being in in ballatore but overall like week to week we are starting. I'm one of those guys that kind of sticks up for the judges I get it every now and again they do that. But for the most part it's pretty decent but yea we're starting to have kind of a problem here when you when you look at the overall landscape of what happens in mma just because it doesn't happen in big fights doesn't mean there's not a lot on the line right look what this is going to do to klay. Collared know a million dollars. He lost out on. When you think about it. Were down the second place gets two hundred thousand so at least two hundred thousand because even it'd be lost in the finals get two hundred thousand so you have two very costly loss for them very costly and it's really starting to become an issue but i thought clay one i thought the stats are support. It If you look at the decisions that people were throwing out. I think even on the broadcast right. I think they all had all but one had been kept klay collared. So i mean we're not all a show randy kenny and the Formula the algorithm. I think there's the fan. But i thought they were all four zero for caller. I mean i mean. That's that's kinda hard overlook. Yeah i mean what can you. Can't you can't change the decision. that's that in almost. Come to expect one bad decision card and almost come to decide that if that's what we get okay who let's move and it shouldn't be that way you know it's almost like we now only get mad at the second offense the second terrible offense and there was an offensive l. tour but that's guarded beal but a pf l. This was one that was costly. You know congrats the rosh montville. I just don't think you should be be there Defeated alex martinez all decisions. Dude you know we were talking about this whole. What do we have on. Where's the volume gonna be. You switch back and forth the fighters i this. The fighting wasn't good enough for me to be for me to come in here and tell you that i enjoyed all sixty minutes of fighting fifteen minutes. Fifty minutes fifty minutes demands for those semifinals. I didn't really enjoy that as much. There were moments. But i guess i'm looking for a little bit more and i wasn't getting it a bell tower on the I wound up actually having belts on the volume a little bit more than than i thought i did. Come main event time manage to you know play with both and so both god volume time congrats the georg lucy. By the way we'll get the imminent second but like are you even excited about lloyd. Radimov against rosh montville. Mahmud kerimov versus ray cooper. I am a lot of it has to do with cooper model. Macaire wants a good fighter. They fought once before. But i'm not. I'm not that I'm not that excited for the the lightweight fighter. I i guess. I would have been more excited for a pet is collared final rematch. Or editors solti the two-time winner versus the highly coveted free agent like some bit of story versus what we're getting yeah. I didn't work out that way. I'm still in the tune in but the other could have been a little bit better storylines that's a i. In my opinion. The judge took that away from us. You almost wanna say it's also been the bucks versus the sons but the genus gupo and the other side's got you know chris paul. And what's his face. What's homeboys named devon devon booker. Yeah so they got exciting. Players just at the franchisers aren't really avid jumped out at you over the years the traditional powerhouses. So it's probably a bad example. But i'm talking about as far as like the value of a franchise the the bigger ones. Obviously the you know the lakers of late. The warriors probably brooklyn nats like the tv ratings. Gold is one on tylenol. Ner do that all right so the only other fights. I guess i want to go over for. Afl on his blasts through these real fast. On the undercard least about defeated mike mike aotearoa olivier mercier defeated their horror by the way. Thank you for that arm triangle. Or excuse me. The triangle choke a gleason. That was like a one of a few finish. Their brett cooper defeated tyler hill. Mogamat mulata off defeated leandro silva Michael lombardo defeated keilan bar. huron An elven espinosa defeated than stewart a. Yeah what else. Russians are going to hate me. But i gotta say this salute the russians. They're tough they got great cardio their strongest oxes oxen their fight strategy. I guess you can't blame them. But i almost feel like. I'm in the nineteen nineties again. Were mark coleman marker and dan severn. They'll take it out and they'll just back by slap you around and there's nothing you can do about it and i think that's what they're doing all right man but i don't know it's not it's not. It's not that exciting to me. They're they're good at it. That i mean that's all it comes down to you. I don't know. I mean maybe the fact that the restroom plays a part in it like if they had more. You're right you're right. it's not it doesn't have to do with russia. Palmer did the same thing. As in american he wants titles along the way the seattle. If it was somebody who spoke english right and had like a personality that you gravitate to like lance boomer. Yeah he fights outweigh but it also talks a lot of smack you know. He came from time to time. He's a little bit of a bad ass. So maybe that would help but the fact that that we don't really hear much from them and on top of it kind of the same game plan. I understand where you're coming from. But hey man that's just an advantage. That guy worked that hard his whole life to have that advantage. And it's not like mixed martial arts you can't say will you're not allowed to fight the takedown. You're not allowed to punch him in the face. You're allowed to do all that shit. He's just better at what he does. You are udu meeting sort. He's probably not taking head drum head trauma so good for them. Honestly i guess take a take a lesson from habib gone. Moby was so charming in terms of he learned english. He learned slang. He learned how to trash talk. He wasn't the best at any of them but he mixed it up enough. You know along with how man you know the the little bit of striking. That came along the way i really enjoyed watching fight especially towards the end early on i was like okay this guy in our but he did manage to make things exciting. I think he just put the working on all ends social media. I've i've told a lot of these fighters don't speak english. It's not an excuse because you can still go to social media and get creative ways there You know just find a way. Find a way andrea agassi kind of found his way. You know what i mean. He was dominant for a while. But the reason it's been around for a long time is is durable. He wins fights. But i think he wound up gravitating to only you know. He learned a little bit of english. He was amsterdam. And i don't know. But i think that's one of the realizations came to this weekend but look that's done via vel comeback. October twenty seventh made an announcement that it'll be in hollywood florida and congrats stall the winners. You know you're going to be fighting for life changing money so Belot torts to six four took place. Gig are positive. John salter in the main event he defeated them with some ground pound in round three Salter at a nice first round I dunno i thought despite was just gonna be a little more exciting. But i gotta finish and that was good under course conference the bottom mossy. Excuse me that was. The common event. Khorishkov won a decision. There ralphie on starts defeated and model mid kerimov or site maga amid mogomedov and now this fight goes had two wrestlers. But i don't wanna contradict myself actually enjoyed it now. A lot to do with the girls pulling for What's i bet roffe on stocks. So maybe that's what made it a little bit more exciting. Even though we'll guys are very very good wrestlers. I just thought the stakes were so high at a guy with you. Know i wanna get you the correct records here. I know they both had losses but okay had a on one guy gets an eighteen in one guy. that's you know and knowing that the winner could possibly get sergio pettis that got me excited other. These invite surprising to be honest. That i i didn't know that stocks comes from a good camp so you know he's going to be prepared but i thought he fought one of his best fights. I with I thought it was good. The main event Are we are we. Are we going order. Oh yes i those are. The three big fights applies. Summarize the the other ones you can concentrate on any of these three. The khorishkov win the stops win or the or the Joyce it's weird. Because i i expected more out of that musashi fight but it wasn't the end of the world and it had a stoppage but there was a certain point where you could to towel salter pie wasn't gonna have enough to win that And then with masasi. It's weird he puts us in the situation. Where like i don't wanna say. He shows holes but he shows that guys can take the fight to him then he figures out how to solve it but he doesn't leave you with that that impression that oh my god you know. Who's next this dude don stoppable. You don't have that feeling you just have the feeling that we have a pretty good fight at the top. But he's beatable. Yeah that's that's that's a good way saying maybe that's what it is is. There isn't a who's next moment I feel terrible coming down on delatour. Because they're they're trying. I could see that they're trying to they're innovating. They do. Invest money in certain spots. But i'll give you an example. I wasn't overly enthused about the fate or timothy johnson announcement. Somebody pointed out to me and if they wanna volunteer who they are. That's fine but i've also come to the conclusion. Jen brown doesn't do it for me as a host. Josh is gotten better you know. We all remember from the u. of c. Good looking kid. And he's very good at engaging jan and in this case austin band ford was the guest co host. But that part i guess when they when it is jailed maybe has a little bit more energy or it's just more interesting. Maybe i think that might be the best word of more. Although definitely brings it ambig-. John just adds a lot because he knows he's learned how to compensate any ads. The rules the regulations that aspect at all. But you're right goes stocks. mother Was more exciting because we knew that something was happening. It's a division that has a lot of talent. there's a subplot of his stops twins. Will he find his teammate Mogomedov is the guy that beat yawn yamagata be mousy right away. That guys no joke. You also high stakes. That made it interesting. But then you get the course governo mossy and like okay. Well what are they doing like. What's what what are we gonna do well to weigh like well. Tornados popping for a while but daily teases with a retirement. Mvp sometimes takes time off Mcdonald laughs so is course come back. I don't even course caveat along Off as well and then we get to the middleweight. And i'm sorry. I know salts or has a great record and only any finishes almost everybody. He probably did deserve to be there. But it's not the murderers row. That i'm used to with the ufc. Where hall and strickland has a lot going on or it in those guys are probably like not even in the top ten. They're looking into the doctor and they're like eleven o or maybe they're eight nine. I don't know what they're still looking to see. Can we get two whitaker in izzy and canyoneering gas stallone derek. Brunson all those other cats. You know austin manafort's it's not his fault he's undefeated. he's patriot. Fans boo deserves to get in there. It's got a lot of bell. Twins wins but are we excited for masasi. The associate didn't even help them so by going. I don't even know any of the middleweights a rebel. So it's like there's so many things that are happening all at one time that managed pull what little hair have left from my head. I'm excited about masasi and and often ford. But it's not because like titles on the line or anything like that. I think it's going to be a pretty decent fight but other than that. I could care less that. There's a belt on the line at 'cause to me it's not gonna prove anything like No disrespect to tim saucy. But i think we all know that the possibility of him being the best middleweight in the world is not happening. And even of austin comes in and destroys them. I still feel like maybe austin's guy. It's not that same feeling that you have with mckee where you're like. Hey man this guy might have something else rosso. So it's just odd feeling of i. I guess you have to take it for what it is. You know these moments with ballatore. Npfl maybe just gotta sit back. Take the media hat off. Whatever the back grab a beer and a hotdog and just go man. That was a good fight. Maybe you look at it. That way and just be entertained that way but i think as americans not all of you that listen to this podcast for americans but one of the things that made it successful was they just sat back. They didn't really care much about rankings. Just sat back and said gives good fights give us interesting bites here in the united states were obsessed with who is the best who is number one. I wanna knock on my buddies door and go on my team rules. You're team sucks. And sometimes we don't. We can almost not give shit about how good the game is. Whatever we just wanted to. Who's the best. And i think when you do that with delatour. Npfl it it's not gonna work out for you the you have to take it for what it is and just enjoy if you enjoy fighting there's going to be good fights not every single time they will be. Don't worry about who the die at the end of the day is going to be left with the bell and is he the greatest of all time. It's not gonna happen but you might get entertained along the way. That's why i keep saying less. Fight cards more dividers picard. Strikeforce to me should be the the key to bell tour It's not their business model. I heard they're profitable and do well but jeez there must be another part of the world. That's clicking Or obsessing over this. 'cause i'm not now look when they said. Bill davis resolve Field yeah man. That's too popular fighters that have been world champions. Different organizations davis is a former ballot or light-heavyweight champion. You'll remember was a former strikeforce lightweight. Champion you'll remember was more known as a you have seen mentally infielders maybe warrant more. Well no sorry. Romero as uc midway davis uc light-heavyweight. But they are where they are. And i liked that so i can't completely take a turn on them because i really liked that and i really like the possibility of stocks were suspicious and i really like the possibility of coker warming up to a baltimore grand prix in the bantamweight division. I think that that would benefit them a lot because look got pettus are to let mix catchy mix magomedov. The guy lost stott. Stott's the andrew. Higo james gallaher Josh hill you can pick up some hearing there. But you know the spy a few others that i might have missed out. But that's a good number right there. Yeah i agree. That would be fun. It's always fun to have something out of the ordinary going on. And that's kind of baltimore's thing as grand pries. It helped them mckee. An pit bull both had certain types of personalities pit bulls just so serious but he's a gangster because of his belts and then mckee is just so cool and suave and undefeated. He hopefully hopefully abandoned way. Graham prix can also set something up like that in for the finals. I'm not sure. But i i think that's something they should pursue and i think they should have less cards and more of their talent frequently fighting. I don't wanna hear about guys are able to give bites with that many cards 'cause I don't either. I got a bit more on these fights. Or there's just some that are driving me nuts and guess what aeronautical and boxing aren't the answer. I'm not shitting wrestling for sure. I watched the olympic. Wrestling was pretty amazing. Both greco roman in all stock in one week about was named mariam lopez. The cuban guy that had won four gold medals in greco-roman superheavyweight division. And then you know we had gable. Stevenson david taylor. Men's freestyle maryland. Saw for the women's The women's side first black female to ever win arresting metal. Pretty amazing there but And i would say the same for digital jujitsu can be very exciting especially when it involves. Surnames goes in a blast over at the event there that had. Wc pride strike worse than you'll see. What was that called grappled quintet. Winter was awesome man. James crowson and jay z cavalcanti and jake shields and clever to as many great fighters went winning their grapple than in. I would go back to something like that every month that they had so you gotta mix in a little bit of that name and the writers of the help themselves up while building up. That name So again it has nothing to do with the ground fighting Inviting i'm still mma. I there's times when i'm looking at the belt. The bareknuckle like oh. I wanna see these two with the rest of not as excited about or there's times boxing. I'm like i'll skip a couple So it has nothing to do with standup versus ground fighting. It just has to do with the personalities they have to help sell me on it. Pack ya. I know his prime but the balls and i guy to take on arrow spence since then since the announcement earl spencer's back pack. You're still gonna fight but just to do that at age. Forty one to test themselves like that against young a young in his prime town like errol spence that to me is something that that makes me want to like fork over my dough and spend time watching. We thought really figured out who earl spencer is right since the act like. He came from a pretty bad accident. He once he did and it was a good opponent but a long-term right. We gotta figure out just where exactly where he's at but be right many pack yell at his age. Taking anybody even remotely in that category is pretty damn impressive though i wanna see spence Fight bud crawford to be honest never bugged asked to happen. And but you know you got top rank and you got whatever eddie hearn's outfits called Golden boy there's just so many of those that don't want to do business with themselves and unfortunately you know but i'm really starting to realize that it's it's the the personality and the match up that that makes me interesting. I like oscar de la hoya nineteen ninety two olympic gold medalists Soap calgary won a lot of titles. Came through came up short against act gal trinidad great fighters but other than that pretty much smashed everyone else. versus vitor. Belfort a guy that amazed us with his an early on you know and still has gas tank just doesn't wanna wrestling digital anymore. But he's got some hands are these has. I don't know if he still but delahoya been partying for fifteen twenty years. Can he get all that rest often. Fight a guy that is five years younger than him and most recently bought three years ago. Cows or two thousand eight. He retired on the stool against many patio. That's too big things. otherwise. I wouldn't be saying usually a pro boxer against the anime ain't gonna go to well. Thank you over. By the way for approving we have a pulse heartbeat. You know in that department but it really. That shouldn't happen but yet that's an intriguing match-up here's my money jake. Paul versatile willie's wrestler. He just hammered arrested but this wrestler has hands. He's killed people. He's more athletic faster He he's not younger than by scream. Woodley's older. I don't know i just feel like i think it's something jake paul hasn't seen yet. Therefore i'm intrigued. You know what i mean. Plus they kinda sold with when woodley went back there to watch wrapping the hands. It kinda got into. It's a little bit trash-talk built up there. Here's my money. you see what i'm saying. There's certain match ups. Here's my money. i have no problem. That one in particular I mean i think jake paul made a good point really be go back and watch his fight. He has really been hit. All people say. Hey his hands are pretty decent defence about either the thing tyron woodley is i think if we all knew ironwood was put his foot on the gas than i think we all have no problem picking taryn would lead to win that fight. But it just depends. Does he have that in him. Like is he sick to his stomach the way most. Mma fans are where they're like. Somebody needs to teach this kid a lesson in boxing. Does he have that than i'll pick. Taryn woodley all bay but if therapy just showing up because there's money on the line he feels. I've been doing this a long time. I should have no problems. That's a little bit tougher man. I don't know that you could do that. But i'm actually going to tune into this somehow win the over. He's won me over actually get out of them now need to. Are you going to tune in to anderson silva resistant ortiz boxing. Nah that does nothing for me. Props anderson silva what he did with chavez junior but t ortiz is. Just i get it. He was arrested later and he and i. I believe that he did work on his boxing and developed a decent defense but it was never good. It was never like a chat mendez right. He was known for his wrestling but he developed quick hands and movement like it was all a combination of all blended together yet great defense he had good movement with throw it. He had good balance of that. Like i don't. I don't really care about this fight approves nothing. Let's talk about the earliest serious subject here. Age vans after she fought rachel ostovic. She was so disappointed. She ran out of the bare knuckle rain and straight to the parking lot upset crying but what we didn't know was that she actually. This loss pushed her to the brink of thinking about wanting to kill herself. Wouldn't you think when you heard that. I felt bad because outside of fighting anything that i've ever known page vans has always been pretty positive. You know the things that she's accomplished in life she anytime we've ever interviewed her or people talked to her. I didn't get that feeling of like i. Hope she gets her ass kicked or anything like that just seems to appreciate what she does have. And she's tough. She really really tough. Like you would think everything was true. What people said about her she just a pretty face. I've seen that face absolutely bludgeoned with blood all over and she would not stop coming board. She's a tough girl. I felt bad that her frustration got to that level. You know one of the things she pointed out was she's married. Austin austin keeps winning. She keeps I get that man. I mean that that's really really difficult. I just hope that she gets the proper help. Whether it's friends family healthcare professional that can kinda put her in the right place right now because it's really tough to say but i think you should be proud of what she's what she's been able to accomplish where she's done it where she's father's lot fighters fight their entire life. Never make it to the ufc. Let alone get a win. You know what i mean. She's accomplished in pretty cool things in our sport and i think she's decent She's not the greatest fighter on the planet. But most there's very small amount of fighters in mixed martial arts that you really look at those guys. Stand out above everyone else. That's really select group. I you should be proud of one of the things that she accomplished in. I hope there's a way that she'll come around and realize that. Don't most of us including austin still consider the side of that relationship. I know you've even joking. Call him mr van or whatever. She's right he's winning. She isn't but she's just so popular that I think what what she she just matters more. You know not as humans. A sportsman closing the gap. A little bit. I think if he wins the title of maybe that even things out a little bit. But she's just got a lotto notoriety from dancing with the stars I think it will. Sports illustrated know their instagram page. The what's it called members only fighters only our fans only only fans in europe. I think she probably catches the bigger checks. Maybe i don't know. I don't know the finances and he seems to be fine with it. That's what makes them so cool in a way that he's not pushing back on it he i don't think he cares it secure. He's confident any channeling. Things quietly fibro world title and if he wins that's awesome but i would hope that she would be happy for him in that regard Behalf that the two of them were having success. So that when one's down the other one is up. Hopefully at one point that can both be up. But you can't fight forever in marriage definitely take you in the seventies and eighties. Fighting can only take you up up until your forties. Some people get past that you know. But i think she should start focusing more on just what she has in front of our. That's dude that seems to be okay with success. Back him in did a really nice goes. I gotta tip my hat pat berry berry. I think he probably finished with a record. Similar like maybe eighteen in twelve sixteen in twelve sixteen ten on also. What i'm trying to say is it wasn't the greatest record ever. He had exciting fights. But i remember he said man. I'm done. it's time for me to retire and concentrate on mama bear. i remember. he said that. And he's her corny so happy. I don't know what they do many interviews. But i don't get this feeling where he's doing the old. I scored four touchdowns in high school. My polka jersey. You know what. I mean it. He's just you would never even know that he was a fighter. He's basically her coach and her biggest fan. And i think that's outstanding the the sad thing in all this is. This is just isolated incident right. It's high profile because it's page vans there but when you think about how many people are involved in mixed martial arts and how. Many people have probably felt the similar way to page van. Zandt that numbers probably pretty big in. I don't know that there's any being in mixed martial arts right now that serving that 'cause at purpose other than picking up the phone and talking to somebody that may be as in your same boat before you know and we seem number while you got that big you up. Cpi right I would if you're going to have therapists and nurses or whatever the hell they have. Their price should be a room. Where at any time. Somebody can walk in and talk to a professional. There are sports psychologist. But when i hear of sports psychologists it's usually followed by and he had me picture winning and throwing punches and like they're not talking about the mental side that you're talking about like depression in the dark date talking more about performance as an ethnic they can tie in. You know because if you're already carrying that that it's more like performance based right so the athletes trying to figure out. How can i get my best performance. And in the doctors trying to figure out or i will what told you back as fear. Some some people will say at fear of looking stupid on national television. Or it's the fear of getting hit or whatever that person will help you get through those things but in this particular case. I don't know that page vans is saying that she has any performance issues. It's what's coming from the losses. Those feelings afterwards that she has to be able to figure out how to deal with that would be more towards a different a different doctor to touch on that a sport. I think i think a sports psychologist can tie things in for her but I think she's passed that jake. Paul he said he get a kick out of this guy. You're a fan. You're going to tune into him woodley first of all who you rooting for. I know you're a fan of of j. paul. But i think you've always been a fan of tyron woodley. So where words. Were you gonna be rooting for that night. Term woodley You know m anime dying. I don't wanna see our guys getting smashed especially by somebody. That doesn't have that much experience like jake. Paul i dunno from fantasy. I mean i like jake paul. I thought he was a tool when when we when we first came on the scene thought. This guy's a tool. But i respect jake paul because when it's also done that dude still shows up to the gym every day and tries to get better and take serious visit as capital paycheck. Like whatever he gets paid. You can't really hate on it because he he earns it. He earns that paycheck. And i can't hate him for that. Yeah i would agree. He wanted me over. In that regard i still want would kick ass. I still want. Yeah that's basically it. I want would lead to kick his ass but still want jake jake paul to continue boxing you know. And he revealed a hit list. Did you see the thirteen names that revealed. Are you familiar with that. The last one was his brother took more it. I really thought Dislike each other. But when i saw that blog leading up to logan paul receives floyd and they were on the same plane and it just looked like a big brother. Thinks as little brother's little wacko but it doesn't look like he disliked somewhere doesn't love him and i think if they did it i think it would just be a hard sparring match. I don't think it would be that fight that we we look for now. The lived on brothers. Dave actually throwing missiles man their faces like bare knuckle that their faces. Those guys are wired. Differently and i think it comes from the danny side i. I don't think joe likes to do it. I think it just from danny side. He's just a mean sob And maybe these two guys would do like with bare knuckle as well but it doesn't look like that. It looks like both guys are big successes outside of boxing and now they're doing something with their boxing. And that's that and i doesn't seem like there's a jealousy or nothing like that. I kinda like it. I kinda liked that dynamic. I'd rather not see them. But i think there's a lot of people for them to fight you know separately whether it's farfetched as conor mcgregor. You know in a boxing match to your own brother to an actor to an athlete. Whatever it is keep doing your thing. And maybe jake paul best thing is to stay away from actual pro boxers and just enjoy this right now. I think so too i think. But he's smart list. And i get it but i can see. Some of those names actually happening. You know like a one of the brothers. I could see one of that one of those happening. It all just depends like the trajectory of what they wanna do. Woodley can completely change that in a second and he can pivot. That's the thing. He has the ability to pit. All right i won't bite him more guys now. I'm going to focus on but a wwe wrestler popular wwe guy. Gimme that and then that entire audience is gonna tune in for that or how about another youtuber. I'll tune into that right like that. Kid is bulletproof icky he could pin it to just about anything. He wants Trying to get his list of names here my internet's a little bit slow but here they are shit on. Pull it up way. Yeah please lit up our nick robinson. Check your bottom right to the test. Nascar check urine fall now. He's the time the hell have another name on their cannella. That's that don't don't ever nate or nick. D. is definitely see that happening and think you would have a good shot at fighting one of those type of guys commodities mont wouldn't do that tommy fury. I probably wouldn't do that either He's a young boxer but he is a boxing between boxer. Got more experience mcgregor. I don't think that that will ever get to that point where that can happen. But if it did do pretty damn epic. Kassai who i think. His brother fought right. Ranta davis that's nagy and then the last one is his brother. logan poll. that would be a bad decision. Dramatic davis all right. I think mcgregor in the diaz brothers what he should focus on personally thrown in. Wwe guy yeah. Stay away from the boxers. Unless it's a someone older. I mean may whether it was worth it honestly for logan he probably made a lot of money and mayweather just doesn't have heavy hands so if you can survive you know you saw jake paul. Who's going nuts over his brother to surviving. You almost thought he would that that that he was winning the fight but that wasn't when they just go and survived that long and mayweather. We'll he'll carry you but it'll carry you because he also knows he just doesn't have that power older These kids are big man. It's like six quarters. You know so i would stay away from almost all of them with the exception of that guy. I in impact cow is probably even smaller than mayweather But i'd stay away from paco breaker euler. He's just throws hard both hands and he wants to end you sean. O'malley by the way. Sean o'malley before we close sorry he's saying as long as they. I'm in this contract. My conscience is guilty about taking lesser-known fighters or fighters that are ranked below me. You're paying me the same anyway. Once i get into my new contract let's go bring on the ranked opponents you know. I don't mind the strategy. I just don't think he should have been vocal about it. Not with this promotion. That kinda tends to hold on to those types of feelings harsh feelings and reciprocated your way. You know what i mean. I thought a that something. Save for the book or wants or successful. And you hold the cards. Then maybe you can start being a little bit more open. But look at france on the batsmen on the planet super exciting straight amazing gaels including being the best heavyweight of all time any probably walking on eggshells a little bit so it just goes to show you like the best play. It's not he was vocal about sean shelby. He's sings things here in there. I don't know that i don't know that. His decision like i don't think he's the guy saying i don't wanna ranked opponent. I think you have ceased throwing these guys. He's just agreeing to it saying. I don't feel bad about agreeing. But i don't think for a second. It's the ufc picking these opponents saying that. He's the fans are upset that he's not saying no. Give me that guy instead. He's just saying don't have a problem taking these. I don't know. I am. May god bless the ones that lasted twenty years. I just don't think that's going to happen as much now. I think you have the solid five year window where you're actor peak and there's two and a half years before two years after seeking have about a ten year career the first two and a half years. You just gotta like dana. Why contender series this guy. That girl or whatever you know and then you get that test you finding get your test. I think for conor mcgregor. It was dennis even when we went like okay. That's a step up. It was boy illegal. Shit now we're talking and then after that every fight stuff you know and then once you lose your titles and you're no longer the man or the woman then you still get the benefit of well. Let's match these two aging stars. Are these two former champs or the loser leave town leisurely promotion type of match ups You have a little bit of a lifeline there and then after that you go to trailer bare knuckle or whatever you know started doing what you do I think that's going to be like the norm. And i think that's where sean o'malley might be making a mistake. He's had a couple of serious injuries. And i'm telling you. Mma you just don't know how nasty it is man. Some won't take you out and all sudden you're out and that's that the uc now focuses on that person in fact patrons answer pretty good example transaction have been very very popular astrology that they should maybe built but they kinda through the deep end and now like the ucs nothing to do with her and the uc's not looking back as uc's eight do the locomotive but anyway interesting stuff.

Episode 131 Congress - Baltimore Edition

"Thank you for joining the American Revolution Today. Episode One thirty one the Continental Congress Baltimore Edition over the last few weeks. We've covered some of the most pivotal events of the revolution. The massive British army under general. How invaded New York? A New Jersey sending the continental army fleeing before it the continental army than counter to retake Jersey. And last week we looked at events. Events in the south over the same period as Tories in Florida with their creek and seminole allies seemed to have no trouble pushing into patriot. Control troll Georgia. Today I WanNa talk about what the Continental Congress was doing as all these events unfolded as the British army push toward Philadelphia in December. Seventeen seventy six. The continental army was not able to mount much of any defense. Many on both sides assume that the British would take Philadelphia before ending the years offensive members of Congress not eager to become prisoners. War decided to leave Philadelphia Philadelphia on December twelfth. The Congress voted to adjourn and reconvene in Baltimore Maryland. The following week in in Baltimore locals. I offered Congress the courthouse but it was too small instead. Congress rented the Henry Fight House which actually was a hotel and tavern on the western edge of town. The three story fourteen room brick building had several rooms large enough for committee meetings at the time it was the largest building in Baltimore. Congress rented the building from fight for three months. For sixty pounds sterling overall members. Were not happy with Baltimore. It was not the charming city that exists today as one member put it. The town was exceedingly expensive and exceedingly dirty. That at times members could make their way to the Assembly Hall only on horseback through the deep mud in his diary John Adams called it the dirtiest place in the world there was also a hundred and seven year. Wait for Orioles. Tickets tickets putting aside the conditions in Baltimore. Congress got to work remember. Mid December was the low point of the Patriot movement. Everyone expected the British to take Philadelphia. The continental army might be captured in the process. And if not officers and soldiers jurors were already deserting what they saw as a lost cause congress had been reluctant to turn over much power to General Washington and the rest of the military Terry leadership for fear of losing civilian control of the army since there was no executive branch. Congress itself had to act as a department department of war trying to run everything through committees with the current chaos of events. Congress voted on December twenty seventh give General Washington special powers for six months to raise his own army from the states. Appoint officers and take appropriate. Action against uncooperative cooperative civilians. This was the day after Washington's victory at Trenton. But the timing was purely coincidental. It's not clear whether word of the victory had even reached Congress by the time of the vote. The matter had been under debate for several days prior so this was not about handing how power to a victorious general it was about Congress effectively admitting that it was not capable of making the necessary executive decisions that had to remade decisively and quickly by a commander in chief Congress placed a six month time limit on the powers to make sure that Washington did not become a a dictator with the army on the verge of collapse and the only serious replacement for Washington. General Charles Lee now a British prisoner Congress decided it had to go all in depending on Washington to run the army as best saw fit. Congress expressed concern about some recent prisoners as as well it directed Washington to investigate and protests General House treatment of Richard Stockton whose capture I discussed back in episode one. Eighteen treatment of captured member of the Continental Congress was an issue near and dear to the hearts of the rest of the members. Congress Congress also denounced British treatment of Charles Lee when initially captured. There were rumors that Li was going to be shipped back to England and hanged as a deserter or Trader Congress affirmed Washington's position that if the British hanged in American general the Americans would hang a British officer of the same name rank by the time Congress passed this resolution though the British were already treating Lee quite well. They allowed Lee to send for his dogs and in his servants General How met personally with Lee during this time. How eventually got lead to send a letter to Congress asking them to send a the delegation to New York to discuss peace terms by mid February though it appeared that the Americans were back on the offensive and Congress rejected acted Lee's proposal? Congress was not ready to consider any peace proposal if Britain did not recognize American independence and that position required quired military victory. Washington's minor victories in New Jersey had been a huge boost for morale but they did not really change the thinking on either her side. That Britain would eventually crush the rebellion. Unless the American psyche get a few more countries involved. I mentioned back in episode one fifteen fifteen that Congress had appointed Benjamin Franklin and Arthur Lee to work as commissioner along with Silas Deane in France. They needed to pull France into the war with Britain. Congress however did not want to rely on France alone. Franklin had only arrived in France in late December before Franklin could do much of anything let alone get any reports back to Congress. The delegates added to Franklin's duties by appointing him to serve as a commissioner to the court of Spain. Both France and Spain had lost colonies to Britain during the seven years war. Congress hope that both both countries find this an opportune time to reclaim lost. Real Estate. While Britain was tied up with America entry of any other a European power into the war against Britain would force London to spread its resources more thinly and give America a better chance of holding onto onto its independence. I'm going to get into Franklin's exploits in Paris in a future episode but for now I WANNA point out that Congress this was already expanding his role and attempting to get whatever European powers into a war. That would improve American odds of winning Congress. Also so was not convinced that anyone could convince France to start a new war with Britain if they could not get France into the war congress at least hope to receive leave more covert assistance in the form of munitions and other supplies needed to help with the war effort as if there was not enough going on political leaders. In the New Hampshire grants met any convention in the town of Westminster they drafted their own declaration of independence calling align themselves the Republic of new Connecticut a few months later they would change the name to Vermont. The declaration was especially controversial because New York still considered this territory to be part of New York anxious not to annoy the New York delegation. Congress opted to ignore Noor this declaration entirely not approving or criticizing it it would not receive a delegation from the self-proclaimed Republic nor or do anything else to recognize it status. The people of Vermont would have to wait more than a decade to get any recognition for this reason. I'm Moley mentioning this in passing for now I will talk more about the politics of Vermont. Independence in a future episode. A much more immediate problem for Congress was money. Congress had been pumping out millions of dollars in paper money which were essentially promises that the bearer someday would receive Steve Hard currency but especially when it looked like the British might win. No one wanted to accept the continental currency. Since a British victory meant there would be nobody around to make good on that paper even when the Americans look like they had a chance. Victory though continental paper continually tenuously suffered from hyperinflation. Congress had no plan in place to receive any hard money that is golden silver to pay off the paper. Ver- states would not give power to collect taxes it could only get anything from the states if the states unanimously agreed to such Japan and Congress never seen capable of getting them to do that on January. Fourteenth Congress passed some recommendations for states to come them up with tax money but for a people fighting war over a foreign government trying to collect taxes from the states. There was a strong inclination nation for many states to oppose this anyone ever getting anything of value in exchange for their paper currency continued to look like quite a gamble. Congress only response to this was to order people to accept the money at face value in exchange for their goods. The the only time this really worked was when soldiers pointed their guns at merchants and ordered them to turn over their goods in exchange for paper or go to jail as a result. Few people were willing to supply the government with much of anything during this session. Congress approved barring another thirteen million dollars. There's through the sale of loan certificates it increase the interest rates from four percent to six percent but even with these changes. The risks were too two high for most speculators. In December and January New England leaders met at a conference in Providence Rhode Island to discuss plus the growing problems of government credit and currency acceptance. Although over in Britain Adam Smith had just published his new book the the wealth of Nations. No one in America seemed interested in the invisible hand of the market. Instead delegates recommended the establishment of mandatory reprises range of commonly needed goods and forcing merchants to accept paper money at those prices the continental Congress endorsed I the New England conferences recommendations and also recommended that the middle and southern states hold similar conferences. This of course only continued continued to devalue the continental dollar and created even more economic chaos across the continent but to be fair Congress really had had no choice it had no power to raise money through taxes and little chance of obtaining that power in the foreseeable future states would not come come up with the necessary funds to prosecute the war as a result. Delegates saw no option other than to continue to print paper money and force people to accept it in exchange for goods and services so in addition to building a diplomatic core and creating a new economic system out of nothing congress also spent considerable time running military affairs although they had just given Washington a great deal of authority over such things. Congress Congress could not help but metal in disputes. That came to its attention. Congress had appointed Jon Morgan as physician in Chief of the army back in October. Tober seventeen seventy five. This was right after it removed. Benjamin Church on suspicion of espionage. Dr Morgan had been a quaker physician in Philadelphia before the war but had served in the French and Indian war and left his quaker upbringing behind many years before the revolution started he became a committed patriot and by most accounts served reasonably well as physician in chief for well over a year. The big complaint against him was that that he was unable to make medical supplies available to regimental surgeons but the problem there was not administrative competence. It was that the continental army army had no supplies and no money to buy them. Dr William Shippen also from Philadelphia and doctor Samuel Stringer of Albany. Vigny both tried to undermine Morgan and have him replaced. In the fall of seventeen. Seventy six congress had decided to divide medical Michael Authority Liberty Morgan's authority to New England and giving shipping administrative control over the mid Atlantic region where the continental army army was now. Centred stringer was put in charge of the northern army medical staff and he simply refused to obey any of Morgan's orders. Morgan visited Congress in an attempt to figure out why they had done this but could not get a hearing. Finally in January seventeen seventy seven congress decided it had had enough without consulting Washington and without any hearings. Congress simply dismissed Morgan and stringer from the army and put ship in charge of everything Morgan unhappy with his dismissal and unable to get a hearing published a book over two Hundred Pages Long Trying to vindicate himself and his reputation. And if you're interested in reading the details of this crisis by reading that full book it is available as a free e book and there's a link to it on my blog at blog dot an REF podcast dot com. Dr Morgan made it a goal in life to take down shipping in late. Seventeen seventy eight Morgan. Working with Dr Benjamin Rush who was also a member of Congress and also a Philadelphia physician. Russian had ship and brought up on charges of fraud and speculation among other things the accused ship in of speculating in the sale of goods needed. Aided by the wounded and personally profiting from their sale ship been avoided conviction by one vote and continued to serve until he resigned signed in seventeen. Eighty one congress later exonerated Morgan of any wrongdoing but it also did not reinstate him. His Army career rear was over for good. Congress also made another important medical decision during this session. It recommended that all continental soldiers. There's receive smallpox inoculations now. This was a controversial decision. A safe vaccination for smallpox would not be discovered covered until many years after the war. The inoculation as it existed at this time often left the soldiers sick with a mild version of smallpox Fox for several months rendering them incapable of fighting or marching then actually also killed a very small percentage of those inoculated for these reasons. Washington had at one point band inoculations and even jailed some private doctors who were inoculating soldiers at at the same time though smallpox could ravage armies. It had killed thousands of soldiers especially in the Northern Army during the Quebec campaign where I really think it was decisive in the failure to secure Canada for the Patriots smallpox had already claimed the life of Major General John. Thomas as well as the Ariz First Foreign General Frederick Ville Him Baron Vaughn Wuttke both of whom had succumbed to the disease months earlier Adams cold smallpox ten times more terrible than the Britons Canadians and Indians together. The the decision to inoculate soldiers with which Washington had also come to agree would end up saving thousands of desperately needed soldiers lives Congress. Congress also created a commissary general of American prisoners whose job would be to provide necessities for the American. POW's that the British were holding living in New York. As I mentioned back in episode one twenty nine the thousands of prisoners who were mostly captured in the New York campaign and surrender at Fort Washington. Ashington were literally starving to death aboard prison. Ships and imprisons after Congress approved the petition Washington appointed Elias Booed who'd not to serve as commissary general and I will discuss his activities in more detail in a future episode. Congress also took the opportunity to use this session to appoint generals as I said. Congress had granted Washington Authority to commission field officers but Congress retained aimed for itself the Authority to Commission New General Officers early in the session it appointed Henry Knox as the new general and Chief of Artillery Hillary. It also appointed Francis Nash General to assist with the Organization and Defense of the Carolinas toward the end of the session. Congress decided to make some larger promotion decisions on February nineteenth. It promoted five men to Major General William Alexander Zander. Also known as Lord Sterling Thomas Mifflin Arthur Sinclair Adam. Stephen and Benjamin Lincoln two days later it promoted nine others to Brigadier General. Now all promotions can be controversial in the sense of who gets it. Who doesn't but these appointments appointments had a particular impact? On one man Benedict Arnold General Arnold had seniority over all five of the appointees not to Major General Arnold was already ticked that he had not received promotion in an earlier round back in August. Seventeen seventy six but at least in that round all those who did get promoted were senior to him. Even if their service was not particularly distinguished. Arnold who had almost single-handedly held off the British invasion from Canada. That fall and who is one of the most senior Brigadier Generals in service seemed lock for promotion in this round when you get passed over for officers with less seniority. That's usually taken that. The leadership does not respect back to you and that you should probably resign Arnold wrote to Washington enquiring about this and indicated that he was probably going to resign he only held off because Washington said there must have been some mistake and that he should wait until Washington could make inquiries into what had happened as it turned out there was no mistake. Congress had considered and rejected Arnold. The main reason given was that Congress already had two major general's from Connecticut and before this no state had three major generals of course. It didn't seem to bother anyone. That Virginia got his his third Major General in this round. In addition to the commander in chief General. Adam Stephen of Virginia who just got bumped up was particularly undistinguished and someone who general Washington despised. The reality was that despite Arles impressive fighting record he did not have friends friends in Congress to advocate for him the members knew he had a record of fighting with his superiors and with the officers under his command. Arnold wrote out several resignations but ended up remaining at his post mostly because Washington pleaded with him to do so and promised to work things out. Arnold wrote back to Washington to say that he could interpret this action in no way other than Congress had lost faith in him as a leader and that it was politely asking Arnold to resign. The only thing that kept him from doing so immediately was that he expected Congress to send another leader to take over his command and his desire to go to Philadelphia and seek a court martial prior to resigning with that he would have the opportunity to hear the criticisms against is Tim and defend his reputation before he submitted his resignation. This dispute would linger for a few months. But in May following Arnold's noted oded leadership at the Danbury raid which I will discuss in a future episode. Congress did finally decide to give him the promotion however going from the most Senior Brigadier General to the most junior major general met that the promotion changed nothing in terms of who could give him orders and who he could order order the same five men who had been promoted over him were still his senior year as major generals. So Arnold's grudge against Congress for being denied tide. Proper respect for his services would continue even after he was promoted to major general by the end of February. Delegates decided the continental Army's counter-offensive in New Jersey at made Philadelphia apparently secure for the time being on February twenty seventh. The delegates delegates adjourned their Baltimore Session and agreed to resume work in Philadelphia on March fifth. Freeing the Baltimore session to an end. Next week I will look at how the British military and political leadership debated strategic war plans and prepared for the seventeen seventy seven and fighting season. Hi thanks for joining the American Revolution. podcast after show this week. I want to say thank you to Mike Hager. As a member of the shows Robert Morris Circle on Patriae on this is the highest level. I have set up on patron and I very very much appreciate the generosity of folks like Mike who helped cover the cost of producing the show each week. It's a great help to keep us moving forward this week. We covered the time that Congress spent in Baltimore in late. Seventeen seventy six and early seventeen seventy seven when they feared the British might capture Philadelphia although the British did not take Philadelphia. At this time. Congress did prove that it could continue to operate regardless of what cities the British might be able to capture. The Baltimore session was a fairly productive. One Congress turned out a great many generals in this session and optimistic. Mystic Congress had authorized General Washington to enlist seventy five thousand soldiers in his army of that never came close to happening. The continental army never never had more than fifty thousand soldiers at one time and even those numbers were later in the war. You may have seen statistics in places that the army wants reached eighty eighty thousand soldiers but that number is combining continental forces as well as state and militia forces. And even that combined estimate. Seems Rather Hi Timmy. In any event to plan for this much larger army that Congress hoped for they began promoting generals to command the army but when the large army she did not manifest. They really had more generals than they knew what to do with in. This problem was only exacerbated a few months later when they started getting shiploads loads of French officers whom Silas Deane the agent France had promised could become generals in the continental army. I'll talk about that issue in a future episode but the excess of generals did become a real problem now the nine men who received promotion to brigadier general in in February seventeen seventy seven ever made it past that to major general in fact no American officer got promoted to Major General for the remainder the war unless he was already a brigadier by the end of seventeen. Seventy six of the five men who received promotions to Major General in in February of seventy seven General Stephen would be cashiered. Within a year for drunkenness during battle Mifflin would resign after about two years amidst charges of embezzlement Saint Clair would be court martialed for abandoning Fort Ticonderoga and never give it another important command during the war. Lincoln would command the largest continental loss of the war at Charleston near the end of the war. Only William Alexander also known as Lord Sterling. What have a fairly impressive and relatively unblemished record from that class? Sadly for Lord Sterling he would die of natural causes near the end of the war. And get to play no role. In the post-war creation of the United States I also mentioned in passing this episode that for months declared its independence attendance during the time while Congress was meeting in Baltimore. I really haven't given it much attention. Because the nation as a whole wasn't paying much attention at the time time New York was already one of the most loyalist leaning states during the war. Doing anything to annoy New Yorkers like taking huge chunk of their state away from them could possibly result in New York moving back to the loyalist cam. Just imagine what would have happened. If New Yorkers workers had turned out to support the Burgoyne campaign and see history go in a very different direction so I think it was wise that Congress chose to ignore the whole thing and let the Vermont issue sit in limbo until after the war and even after until the US was formed under the constitution. Listen because it was ignored. The issue of Vermont's independence and its founding is an issue that probably deserves more attention. If you would like to learn more the book I'm recommending this week is called Moses Robinson and the founding of Vermont by Robert Mellow Moses Roses Robinson is probably another one of those important people. You've never heard of that. least if you live outside of Vermont. He was however instrumental in the founding of Vermont. Remond and also led Vermont as governor when it became the fourteenth state. The book which was written by Judge Robert Mellow and published by the Vermont. Vermont Historical Society in two thousand. Fourteen is an interesting look. Both at Robinson's life and also the turbulent years that Vermont struggled for recognition. It covers. Lots of interesting facts like the time. Vermont spent as an independent republic even though no other country recognized it us such that. It was the first state to outlaw slavery before any of the other original thirteen states and that Vermont there's even debated rejoining the British empire rather than being forced to become part of New York again at over four hundred pages. The book is quite thorough. And an interesting interesting read. Also this week I talked about the political infighting over the running of the Medical Corps for the army. I mentioned that that Jon Morgan. Whom Congress ousted in January seventeen seventy seven wrote a book justifying his tenure and covering the political machinations surrounding ending his removal? The book is obviously biased and one-sided but it gives a great primary source insight into the political wrangling of the time. If you're interested in taking a look at the book it's available on Archive Dot Org as a free book and is my online recommendation of the week week. The book is called a vindication of his public character in the station of Director General of the military hospitals and and physician in chief to the American army by Jon. Morgan you can look it up on archive dot org or just use the link that I've Provided on my website at Amr of PODCAST DOT com. Well that's all for this week. I hope you will join me again next week for another other American Revolution podcast.

Everybody should be aware of what's going on at all times. So i was questioned about my my title by a couple of people and is really quite appropriate. We're going to go over that in a minute Where the title came from. And what the whole story is about intentional unknown and unseen farry sacks by the governments of the of the world including united states of america as starts a topic of ammunition. Hey want saw spanish movie. And they were fighting out in world. War two the battlefield. One one man looks at the other and he goes. Hey bassey ammunition all out munition part of where the munc- on comes from. I don't know ammunition. John is the spanish for ammunition fellow. Look back at me he goes. Oh has of a pack a box. That looks like an ammunition box opens it up. He goes amunition. There's the ammunition. Box was still cigarettes. Looks back adamy says no ammunition. This take it by government. They said we were. We wouldn't have to fight as the shells were lopping them and the infantry was coming at them government said they didn't need it vietnam. The government told our forces to go in with their arms with no ammunition. They weren't gonna need it. They weren't gonna fight good as a gun with ammunition. Then there's the great song. Praise the lord and passing amunition done by several people in the early nineteen hundreds praise the lord and pass the amunition and wall be be free energy examination of jon morgan and halley's dolphin of the town galloway before the first derogatory. Say that robert. Clark brought a ship into port at laden as she has heard with salt and brought some ammunition along with her at burden a month the month of march second inter to say john. Turner said echinacea and include four as she had heard the third. She say that robert. Clark mister turn by whom she not not not running muncy on this g safe occur want and several others surprised to ship going several boats. The sixty say. She heard that several persons were murdered in said shit whom she no none that were murdered ship. Not intended to carry ammunition and the murders turned out to be self defense for pirated attempts. So what have we heard from our federal government. What have we heard from the biden administration. What have we heard from. The democrat left the deep state operatives. What is a plan. The plan was first to eliminate guns. They wanna get rid of guns. They wanna get rid of the a are fifteen weapons of war right away. How many of you know the are fifteen was never intended for war. When i came out cult actually was the initial original designer was designed as a hunting rifle. Never saw a war the war they were using the m16's and and other rifles but never use. They are fifteen never used. Abou- never bought by the military one eliminate mac. They wanna reduce magazine sizes reduced. Stupid people out there that are brain dead using guns. It shouldn't be using them putting people in jail or putting them in houses to to secure their mental illness like we used to let them all out back in the seventies saving money. They shut down all the insane asylums in new york california chicago and that's when a murder rates started going up and use of weapons started going up so they said we're gonna make you we're gonna we're gonna delay thing now. Is they want to make you have a have a licensed to carry a firearm. And they're going to charge a ton of money for it and it's gonna be an annual renewal is what they wanna do what you still the gun to. Now what they wanna do. They want to eliminate the ammunition. They wanna taxi ammunition three or four times. What you're actually gonna pay for amunition. They wanna put tax on for that much. A twenty dollar box van munition would cost you one hundred dollars. They've done better. Let's look deeper and what's going on. I don't know how many of you out their own weapons on firearms i should say. I have several always best to be prepared. And i want to ask the other day. We were making a trip down to more memorial day picnic barbecue. Stop the sporting goods store now. I looked around shelves. Were empty in new ammunition upfront. For one box ammunition. I asked fellow i said. Where's that new ammunition. You've gotta get here before nine thirty in the morning. It'll be all gone by by nine forty five years. You better bring a hard hat to not one box ammunition. Not one bullet. Not one shotgun. Shell not an antique firearm bullet. Not a black powder ball to be had and when you think about that. Then i went on the internet thirty websites. I went to at all carrying ammunition. That's what they sell as amunition sold out. But your name on the waiting list that i called around locally sold out to stock the shelves are stocked with guns. Not a single bullet to be found. They say there's six million people during the course of the pandemic purchase firearms figure on average each person. That's using the word for self defense is probably going to buy. Maybe two boxes of ammunition maybe four tops if they wanna do some practising most. You'll buy firearms sadly. Don't go out and practice figure gonna stick the bullets and pull. The trigger. doesn't quite work that way. So you figure. Maybe it's an extra twenty million rounds of ammunition stockpile an excess of ten or fifteen million. Plus you've got new old stock not a single round and they say that new firearms owners are the reason for the for the bullets shortage. Smoke and mirrors folks y in line line line politicians evil mean critical of our beliefs and our second amendment. Anybody idea why. There's no amunition. Why the french germans italians japanese no one in the entire world has ammunition for purchase folks. That doesn't happen. These plants are so prepped to gear up but a manufacturer ammunition. There's no way you might have the shelves short. But they're not going to be totally completely empty every ammunition including ones that are scarcely used including ones for antique weapons. Thank you marilyn. And yes Control joanne control. That's what it is but it's more than control who's controlling it department defense doesn't want to admit it but the last time we had a situation it was similar to this. When the when guests. Who joe biden senator. Then senator joe biden banned weapons of assault the nineteen ninety s amunition ran out other stockpiles. No was found out later that the military and department of defense was buying all the stock from the munitions makers and burning it. You look at some of the departments. If you look at the at the record and its historical record you can find the united states coast guard at an order. The coast guard. I there are other departments. Fbi cia coastguards easy to find records on. And i have some connections myself. Fifteen million rounds of ammunition. Fifteen million rounds of ammunition. They require less than a million rounds as a backup. Resource do not a military unit. Where the rest of the ammunition go and they destroy just like they destroyed the question. It mentioned in my in my little notes that come up here to like by listeners. About burning they burned things because they don't want they want them to not to ever be used if they fired the ammunition or the ammunition was left lane around somebody would take it home with them and use it for the personal use or it could reloaded if they if they fired it. You'd have cases that could be reloaded. Burning destroys everything. That's why they burn weapons. They burn guns that are turned in. So they've done their job folks. They've done their job. Let us have our firearms. Amendment guarantees a right to own firearms guarantees. It shall not be questioned. Nope we're not being questioned. Here's your guns. But guess what there's absolutely no constitutional right to own the ammunition that goes in those guns folks. What good is a gun without ammunition. Someone needs to find out where that ammunition going because it's not going into my pocket. It's not going into my friends pockets. It's not going into the hundreds in the field who are wondering where their amunition is to go hunting. Why would you buy all the twelve gauge slugs in ten gauge. Slugs cross the bucks season. You can't shoot birds with slugs all amunition. That's what's so weird about it. We need to find a path need to find that loss because they're coming at us with a vengeance. Their goal is to disarm us to make us incapable of defending ourselves. And nobody's question. Where the ammunition went. That's a very important thing because that's our second amendment right to have firearms near going through the back door and stealing in the ammunition. That's something to be seriously concerned about. That's the question to write your congress congressmen and women. It's a question to right to joe biden. ask him. We're ammunition is and when you look at the control of supplies. There's so much silliness going on. They're saying oh it's the manufacturing was reduced and yet during the entire pandemic. There was plenty of ammunition on the shelves. There was plenty of toilet paper. They found from other sources. You know. there's a lot of military ammunition that's of the same caliber that we use as civilians can be repackaged into the same boxes for civilian ammunition wiser shortage coast guard by tons of ammunition. I forget who. It was the nineteen nineties which there were two departments. I think no one was the fbi that bought fifteen or twenty million more rounds than normal to stock pilot in the shells. Were empty back then. To for betty almost two years. We're headed where what are they. What are they thinking. That's the other thing too. you know. Seventeen fifteen seventeen dollar boxes fifty rounds and thirty eight automatic costs between fifty and a hundred bucks now if you can find it. It's a typical comment. That you'd better not run because only get one shot. You're you're only worth one shot at two dollars two dollars a cartridge. It makes no sense because no one's talking about you make sense what they're doing but it makes no sense because no one's talking about what you're going to do with the guns have been talking much about the guns anymore because they know you can't get the amunition for how does that relate to past history. Let's look at the past. What's the first thing that military does when it goes into a country. They're at war with very first thing. Think of think of iran think of iraq when we had the issues think of afghanistan. What's the first thing. They aim for the globe. Him when they blow the munitions dumps. So now you've got planes got armament. You got infantry. They've all got weapons of mass destruction and weapons of war not a single piece of ammunition for them. That's why they do that. What's the game plan. Same game plan as war. We're at war folks. We are truly at war. It's good against evil. It's not republican versus democrat deep state versus us. Good against evil. Is it the great revelation. I know some people say it is. They've been saying that for the last two thousand years whatever it is though it is evil. It's good against evil and as citizens of nice states. America needs to defend our constitution need to defend our freedom of speech in our freedom of religion. Or we're going to lose it but people are starting to wake up slowly. Seen a lot of great things being discussed a lot of great plans that i think that good goodwill eventually win because people realize just how bad the evil is and the funny thing is it really ends up. Being a handful of loud mouse atheist loud bass far left followers of cnbc. Abc nbc cnn. You only had a great rally out here last saturday. I couldn't make it. Because i was at a an event but over three hundred people in our little town little town of bloomsburg down the street for we. The people columbia county pennsylvania stood up for what was right stood up for god's stood up for our constitution and our nation and it was a peaceful march two mile march to the spot at the center of town and a handful of speeches shock. The local newspaper normally very critical of these sort of things had did a very good review and then came the far left liberals with their attacks on this thing but how these people are evil. They're trumpsters communist. they they want they. They want their guns. They want their god. They should all be shot. They should all be imprisoned. Sedition couldn't believe it and these people wrote this article it was one. They put in an editorial couple of came later. They wrote this thing before. This march ever occurred. They wrote this thing without ever going to one of the meetings. Why would you do that. What kind of what. Kind of humanity is ed. What kind of evil horrible miserable people would knock something trash something and talk about some. They'd never seen heard or even seen how they react or who they are. Why would you do something like that. What is wrong with these people. What is wrong with the world. You may not like trump. you may not like biden but at least deserve to be heard now even the far left even deep state. Everyone should be heard. We should be sitting together and talking about things we should who we are and it can be done. I had a great meeting. I might have mentioned on a previous podcast but now i'm definitely a a somewhat moderate but but but fairly conservative republican to what i class myself s because the republican party has most of my values at at heart. But i'll go to a meeting with democrats rotarians atheists go to any any meeting to hear what these other people have to say and to debate that with them and urban thrown out of one of their meetings. I've never gotten louder if at some great conversations. We've agreed on some points in disagreed on others. It could be down folks. We need to start doing. I was like the state. Every what would jesus do you think about it when when when he was walking along and preaching and even when he was being carried to his death ultimate despite on across he forgave those who were lashing out and they forgave those who are going after him understood who they were and why they were doing that. And sometimes you've got to be a martyr for your cause but you gotta listen. You can't be one sided. I hear so many conservatives or so called conservatives coming down talking about capitalism and about the free market economy but nobody discusses what these things are. We don't have a free market economy when you have multinational corporations running every product in the entire world when all the american companies are based overseas when they have satellite offices in the united states and claimed that reside here made in the united states from chinese parts with that the conservatives have become insane too stupid to sit down and analyze. what's actually going on joe biden. Just said. I don't know if you've heard this one. This is a good one. He's decided not to tax the corporations dot to the corporate tax guests who got him. Guess what guess who's realized that people are starting to turn against him and against the left. Oh he's only going to tax the corporations that aren't paying taxes for whatever reason he isn't that a great idea. Think about it. If you have a company you want to say we're an american company and then you take all your work overseas. Don't you think that work should be taxed. Don't you think you should be getting payroll tax on his employees in united states business tax on the business. It's been stationed overseas. Don't you think the corporate executives were working out. A foreign office offices should be paying u s taxes. I think that's fair. If i have to pay tax. Why shouldn't they. If you have to pay tax why should they. Don't just keep jacking attacks on. The few corporations in the few years that happened actually pay taxes. That's how you destroy the economy because people are ones that are bringing new businesses. And they're the ones that are providing the jobs for americans get the ones out there that are not paying tax at all or moving everything overseas to pay their taxes. corporate greed. corporate greed is what it's all about. Corporate greed is why remington will sell fifteen million pieces of ammunition to the coast guard. Yes what it's good for your stocks going up. This allenton jamie niche. Nobody's buying it. Because it's all getting burned or stashed that they're making tons of money. Why not divert that sporting goods stores and the rifle shops gun shops. It's too much work. You gotta get a thousand gun shops. You got and got one government department buying the same amount of ammunition corporate greed folks. Corporate greed is what makes capitalism fail in the united states corporate greed. What makes the free market fail. Years ago we had limits on corporate corporate mergers and monopolies. Yeah sort of a free market for a long time. If you look at the ticks. Nothing bad happened to the economy. Nothing terrible happened until about nineteen seventy two when richard nixon. I pulled us off the gold. Standard the worldwide gold standard then later in early nineteen eighties. They stopped breaking monopolies up. Now look at the charts. The billionaires are big or becoming trillionaires. Mega corporations are merging. I could tell you detail of by company but with pull pull a different one. He's companies are buying every little company in existence. And then jacking up prices up. Because guess what there's no more competition doubling tripling. The price look at eggs chickens. Ninety percent of eggs and chickens come from corporate mega-farms the corporate mega-farms destroy the environment pollute the rivers. Take jobs away. From farmers shutdown local farmers take a look at cable companies cable companies who now own the content as well. As as the wire that's going you know there's ways for everyone to make money and make a good for the for the for the individuals. Why should people have to get ten different. Subscriptions to television whereas in one subscription that where the cost is shared and the prophets are split amongst the company. The creators it. Because the problem is that the it's the pipeline is owned by cable companies and the content providers are owned by them. They can charge what they want and do what they want. You got no say whatsoever because of corporate greed corporations are doing extremely well. What they're doing now to another great another great thing. Go look at your grocery store and look at the items on the shelves and keep an eye on them. You'll see that items. That aren't extremely fast. Movers suddenly disappear. They call loss leaders. Didn't want a handful of people that happen to really like something. Whatever it might that something might be to have that go on ebay and start lend and do a search for pretty much anything camera chair wedding ring. I don't care what it is. And you'll see that they all. The products are identical. at any. Given time putting chainsaw the same three chainsaws will come from the same mega corporations who have one hundred different sub names that they that they do business under all based on his face saying fact that corporations who have control over the supply chain are not working in the consumer's best interest hence the ammunition shortage. We are sold. Our souls our hearts our bodies are sold the highest bidder. Another interesting thing. I just heard that. I didn't even realize that people are donating. This is a little bit off topic but people are donating their bodies when they die to science a wonderful thing. It really is guess where most of the bodies are going. They're going to the military to test ammunition to test protection systems for id's the automotive automobile companies to be used as crash test. Dummies now. personally. Once i'm dead i'm into lord side i don't need to i need my casing. I was given any longer. I don't really care what happens to it. But some people are very sensitive about these things and it's true that you don't generally get that body back once you donate it so you can't have a cremation. You can't have a burial and people are thinking they're gonna go to doctors for study. They're going to go to medical research now. Crash test dummies sold to the highest bidder. True story and then. All the ammunition goes the government. What are they doing it and the funny thing. Is that the ammunition that the government is buying. Up is not ammunition. Used in any government firearm. That's the other oddball thing. So we know something's going on folks they don't have to take our guns it. Just take the ammunition very easy very simple now at some point. You're get to the point where you're going to be willing to pay two hundred dollars for a box of fifty shells. Then they can bring them back on market and just tax you that much make you get a permit for only appropriate for the gun but you need a permit from the munition folks. It's tyranny war. We need to infiltrate from the bottom up the only way we're going to solve this takeover all the offices at the local level then all the officers at the state level and then take over the federal government that can be done. It can be done but it won't be done by telling other people that they're losers. Were thinking wrong. It'd be done by old time. Politicians be done by people who are willing to think for themselves who are willing to talk and listen more than they talk and respond. you see. that's the key when you meet someone the first thing you have to ask if you you have to look at them you don't know what their thoughts are especially. You're running for an office gonna ask you. What do you think about gun control silent. just stop and think then you look avenue. Say i'm curious what you might think about it. You know there are issues at their guns are very dangerous. What do you think about it so you reverse. The question is what psychiatrists do. What do you think about it now. You get to take on a friend or foe yosano. How they're feeling maybe they are wrong with what they're thinking you can correct their pass and people tell me all the time. You can't do not gonna listen. You know what folks you can get him to listen. You can get them to listen if you listen. I if you're rational if you provide historical evidence if you provide scientific evidence for what you're going to say before you open your mouth newsmax now. An just as bad as cnn and abc in a reverse direction can't take everything they save for what it is your homework folks so went off topic a bit but there all. These topics are related shortages. The the especially the ammunition shortage now that all reflect with the control of the federal government control of the world government and. I'm going to emphasize world government. We're gonna go into that again later. Podcast to control definitely of the deep state. If you wanna call it. That deep state is a great term. But it's a very vague term. There are puppet controls at the top somewhere. We don't know who they are the controllers vatican. There's the british crown. there's the bankers. Their strings are being pulled. Because they're all being pulled in unison and they never agree with each other. Those strings are being pulled to unite the world in a very dangerous way. The strings are being pulled for a unified control for a full monitoring of civilization worldwide. Just like the chinese are doing monetize currency digital currency replacing paper money so you can monitor every sale every purchase every trace of where any money goes like crypto currency. That's not controlled by government. Because they don't have control over it. This is where it's headed folks. I implore you to speak to everyone you. Now listen to them. Talk to them. Ask them what they think and hear what they have to say because one by one if every person changes just one other person we have one hundred and forty million people instead of seventy million people that are for a non-politician for non political system. We can do it well. The now comes very fast every thursday. Hope you enjoy these podcasts. If you don't hey post thing. Say hey i don't like your podcast. If you don't like him you like him say hey.

There's this There's this country song that regina loves it's a town called. It's called my bar or something. No yes my god to play kind of please. Yeah i can't stand it but it's so catchy dude code having i love that. If that's like you want like neon moon followed up by the year bar. Whatever that's called and then like you you definitely want to mix in like just like throw everybody off like jimmy buffett who basically just beach country hamburgers impaired versus. Yes i also like that. Could we song. I don't even know what it's called. But i just know he goes chicken fried. There's a there's a band. I just started listening to. I guess i've been around for a while. But i'm like new to like bad about new music but Have you heard this viagra. Boys know aditya pumped and from nineteen eighty three. They look like a pug banned from nineteen eighty three but they sing like weird like It's like hard rock punky. But there's a song called sports and one of the lines reciting a bunch of stuff. He's like volleyball and he's like weenie dog and i just throw that in there out of nowhere and i love it. I love it when like songs got like that. One the line that you just like all day after i hit i'm like weenie. Dog lyricist i think i was There's this lows commercial kroger. There's kroger's commercial that they always play here on hulu and it's that song Members long no no show lou about apple bottom jeans For yeah exactly. Sex club did song basically using it with these. Like claymation figures buying groceries at kroger. School works man. I mean if seth bro. You could do it with sausage party. Why not kroger with laurabeets low. I always wonder because us parties accommodates was feed your but this is just like a street of grocery store like who wrote from genuine or chris. Who the hell of. Florida floro flow writer. I always like they're getting royalties and stuff like that. So i'm sure that's all well and good. What about very integrity and who. I mean against the window. This is very true. If i could kroger's with sponsor as i'd like stronger i would be singing. Lolo kidding you while doing what boys whatever you all shows to start with two other three was singing crappy. Isn't that a meal. Yeah probably i Better a poem by no that song. I heard on the radio the other. There's like one good radio station here and it's like there's always different songs on there and they're a wide variety and they were playing that song and i'm using the mtv version which is already like. I don't know twelve minutes or something but this one on the radio was like twenty minutes. Man this is and then he does have that other song to three batters in ten minutes. That's the dj. A shit. I put on a twenty minute putting on the st matthews jam. You live in a college town. So they don't play matthews. There's something wrong somewhere in college station. Shipping billy's is being played in three and a three eleven familiar with the wheel of time. Yeah the dave matthews song thankfully not know the wheel is for those who don't know it's been proven to be the best fantasy series ever better than songfire. Nice way better than anything token ever wrote but of the series has been worked on for years and years and years ryan. They've been working on it at amazon filing and comecon at home this year they announced that the wheel of time is coming to amazon in november of like. You said you're familiar with pre brandon. Sanderson now i mean you kinda yeah Also that was like twenty years into this series of things. Do get think started reading in sixth grade and i was like twenty four one. Are you excited for. I am I'm not like i kind of feel off of it is visit was so it's such an investment and i've read like the first two or three and it's it is very good it's I like his brand of fantasy. A i think it's a fun kind of more whimsical. Look at fantasy than than a lot of other darker stuff I'm excited i. It's a huge undertaking. Holy cow the idea of this being coherent in all in a series. Kind of mind boggling. But yeah i'm excited to check it out already got amazon so definitely gonna watch it. It's pretty so. I mentioned token like Because it's compared a lot to just because how deep the lower is not just backstabbing languages and cultures and customs. And it's so dance and so it's one of those books where they have like. There's the book which is a thousand pages in. There's like another hundred page dictionary at the back seat can understand it. What i i love the wheel of time. I absolutely love it what. I think the advantage. It has over. Game of thrones which i only i never got past the first season. Of game of thrones was nice. It was a work in progress. So they kinda kind of had to go off and do their own thing. This is. This is complete. Even the robert jordan died the end of it of the series is finished so the good thing is if this show lasts for any length of time that you have something to work off. Yeah no that's to this shows benefit for sure Do you think how. How much do you think they're gonna be. Cutting out of. This is my question. Well that's exactly what i was gonna ask ask. How many books are there because hall shit like fourteen bucks working books so fifteen with the prequel. Okay they can do a lot then right. They can do what the talk. The walking dead did like that. Work is still going on in that. Claimed in two thousand and three panels care about this still. Those people have been winning. A movie in a nbc. Was going to do a movie way back when i remember when jordan was still alive they were going to do. A booby on nbc. For i have the world like it'll be interesting. Like i think inadequate about cutting. They're saying they're going to keep as real to their as a faithful to the novels as they possibly can while there is some stuff that they would need to take some is. I mean these are like thousand started at like seven hundred pages of the series. We got longer with each other and longer. Yeah so there is some stuff that i'm a huge fan series but there's stuff that needs to be cut out of it but i mean they can do a lot with It's super most excited. I've been i series in a long time. That's good to hear. Because i know like i keep forgetting how you didn't really watch. Game of thrones at all. It's still surprising to me. I tried i did like the first season anyway. Something i didn't like it and i always thought didn't like it. I just. It's like breaking bad. Like i watched three seasons of that and i just kind of some with. Ti can't watch. Tv shows very often so when i watch tv show. I just kind of get the feeling like okay. Let's cool. I've had enough. I'm good. yeah. Yeah i get it i get it. I've heard time with series to. They're really ticks a lot and once it became like a thing like i wanted to get back into it but i don't know i just never could i. I did see up until i. I guess there's no spoilers. Everybody dies eventually right. But when jeffrey was poisoned i think i saw i was off and on through. I sat through the first season when it was new and then up until in jaffrey died i would watch it often on but i never that was like the beginning of a season wasn't poisoned or something. They poison serves the end of one of the season. So so to while. Eddie i was a long time i never saw the follow up for that like i never. I don't i still don't even know who killed brother becomes king and then he kills himself then everybody involved in that gets blown up. I died it. It's not a bad series. And honestly i say that. Because i didn't i didn't even watch it when people started hating it. I was already out of it. You can even use as as an excuse You know one of the things. We talk about our sequels that have lost their way. And there's quite a few of them but I would see predator. Is i always forget about it because the sequels are so bad. I'll let me immediately got bad. Yes like creditor has to be in like the top two or three. Oh totally yeah. Yeah i think so because they tried to do alien versus predator predators detroit. So many things like even i think the the predator which was the last one. I think shame black win which was so disappointing because i was so excited for it. Yeah i liked that actor. That guy who's done. I forget his name. But he's he's enjoyable Usually when i've watched them with shite. Yeah it's weird that that was an interesting failure. Got shame black. Who's normally really good. The guy. I don't remember that in libya one was in it regularly. Mind and then like keenan Michael keyes in it. Yeah like this like motley crue worked out but yeah it was like built for success By remember there was some controversy like frank before key now. I don't remember what it was by remember. People were like there was something so. I don't know everything affects sales. Nowadays something came out like the week. It was released him but it also is not a very good movie so either way it doesn't matter of so there is news of another sequel prequel in this case but apparently the story is tracking the predator of from leaving his home planet. To when he first comes to earth does that excite shoe. Okay sure so. Okay so i guess don't like blake like like how he's excited. I'm the same way. I i'm like okay. I am i going to watch this. Yes am i excited to watch it. No at this point. I feel like i'm being dragged to watch something that's slowly dying except quickly died. No no this is like i mean. But they're trying to bring back every single time like. Oh that's true. fuck. God we fucked up. We fucked it up. Hold on you know. We had adrian brodie on that. Were souring arena bringing like somebody. That one was weird. Yeah that was a weird one. But you know i feel like because soldier. Everything is so fucking driven by nostalgia. It's gonna make fucking money no matter what and i see the second conventions and everybody has the same fucking shit ever like aliens predator. You know even though like we. We do a lot of the psych horror stuff. We don't. i guess this is the time that you should subscribe people. We don't do the typical nostalgic strips. I mean it might. We have seen it at one point or another but for the most part we kinda like stay away from it and there's people that like Hone in straight to your fucking assaulted like you've you fucking loved as a kid. Guess what if you let that source of nigger movie. It's gonna you know there's going to be ten thousand fucking things of predator resilient. That's why that comic book was so popular in the nineties there. It's it's also it's funny because the first predator like it's a yeah. He's an alien and he has this amazing technology but it's also very greedy and primitive And from the second one on it went all in on this sci fi horror aspect of it right. Maybe who knows what's going to happen with this one. But if it's the story of the predator i coming to earth and they deal with like who cares what happened on his whole planet. I could care less about the journey from wherever he's from to this planet if it's just what he was doing when he was first on its on this planet and it's really primitive down to earth him like being a predator then that would actually be pretty cool dislike tick away the sci-fi except for the fact that you know he's an alien with his bad as suit but other than that i mean. Just make it like. That's why the first predator was so successful in me aren't sorts. They didn't use laser guns wishing began. Gatling guns yeah. I mean it's cool because it's like it's basically like a stalking slash slasher movie just like an alien guy who has like a plasma rifle. Cool like i love that kinda shit so yeah if you're talking. Yep you're predator action. I'm super you. Know what a really good reason to the director. Man dan trachtenberg. I like this guy that guy. Yeah he did Tim cloverfield lane which is probably what he's like most known for But he's also done a couple like he did the pilot episode of the boys tv series and the first pilot episode of black mirror. So i mean the guys actually talented. I mean if you go back and watch those episodes of particular like i think those are pretty standard episodes and there's a reason they get him to do like i episodes. You know what i'm saying like. He's really good at what he does. So i think he'll i think bring a nice sensibility to this. And you know cloverfield. Lane was a cool sci fi flick. It really was. I have my complaints about it but overall it was. It was a good movie and Yeah i it's a good hand. So yeah i'm excited like come on man predators awesome. We disgraced friend. Fan franchises really such that first one. I mean i remember like. I don't think any you know what i'm i'm thinking of i one everyone's seen it. They weren't supposed to see it. They were gonna see. I think i have a five year old cousin who loves the original predator. I don't even know if you've seen any of the sequels but he loves the original predator though like if they can go back to that to where. A new generation of kids do worked by his alien. It'd be pretty awesome. But i guess we'll see where it goes and a female lead. Apparently home invasion london gang-land thriller. Is that how you would describe nemesis. I mean just talki- talking. This movie is about a an aging gangster named jon morgan. Who's come back to london. For reasons. unexplained and his return to london starts a chain of events that lead to violent ending. So nemesis of guys. Who wanna know where to begin a shit. Let's let the cat out of the fun bags So we've seen a lot of horror movies and we see a. We've seen a lot of ridiculous nude scenes. This is the most ridiculous. Nude scene unseen unwanted. Is that how. I i didn't want to go that far i i could care less about. It did not fit that whole scene itself. Yeah flirt spoiler warning here. It's not needed whatsoever. It doesn't provide any kind of like information for this movie. Exposition it it. It's not needed there. It's inter- assist. They're like and we saw pretty ridiculous new seed from body a few weeks back. A the thing with the sex comedies of the eighties is what's in a title like people naked to have sex in the movies. It was the same reason or they were showering. There is a reason for it. Like daddy said spoiler alert but like he said. There's nothing of import at home in this scene. At least that i can get out of it but We are going to go over some minor details but we won't ruin anything for anybody. I guess there are quite a number of twists to this. We won't get into but yeah this nude scene like just one is funny because don't want it just was like in your face and out of nowhere but it also signals when the movie goes from being you know kinda tedious and whatever to like. Just it goes off the rails from the new teen on. Yeah it totally does She's got a milky. I know kinda did something for me the truth this is totally goes off the rails and it absolutely becomes co like comical now at at this point like i started to laugh out loud at the so it does not. It is not a comedy. No it is not a company and i feel like before the funds were fun bags were out. I was already laughing. Mike like i was laughing. I was more confused before that scene. I was fighting to stay awake once that scene happened. Like that's one of the movie goes from being just boring. whatever to comically bad like i. I don't think i've ever seen a movie. Where the like the turning point is so clear in your face in for a number of reasons like that scene is where everything changes not a lot of characters in here but What did you think of the performances of because there are some pretty big name actors in this. The anna jones the guy from Guess he was pretty big. Yeah the nick. Nick moran is in. I've seen him before. Yeah he's in quite a few things now the lady who gets naked. I've never seen before the the the girlfriend. She's been in a few things also carrying a radio at the time. I did also recognize her. Least your yeah. Like i mean definitely recognized her. These aren't a-list people but they're known actors the performances. I thought were I don't know like they didn't actually. You know charisma bypass actually for me. Do because for the first up until like the strange twists in the third act. He has nothing going for him. No actually i didn't even. I didn't put that character together with what was happening really until the very end. I had no idea where he came from. I i liked. I liked the main character. I thought he was the only thing that was like he was the only thing that was kind of good in this whole. Fill and I had Bill that guy okay. Is he the cop no no. That's that's the the crime boss guy. Morgan or yeah. I liked him I wasn't sure who go with the guy. I was very that now. That's if i was gonna ask about the cop dude because at about this movie's not very long not at about a forty five minute point. He even little. I told regina. I don't know what's going on with this dude. But whatever he does it's going to be awesome and then it's the exact opposite of the build this guy like. What did you think of the cup. I thought it was very very pointless carriage. So when you're you're building the story and you want to make sure this guy is super cool. You wanna make sure you point out every great aspect of this character which. I don't think we ever really get if he has some sort of redemption story great. It's not in this film but the time that we finally see him like. Oh he's getting like suit up and do something great. It's mediocre the best way to remember that one scene in the simpsons were marched. Ends up being a part of the italian gang with the pretzels in the agent. Gang comes in elliott weakness. Is everything yeah. That was that could have that could have happened. You know if they played the cartwright end. I don't feel they're like oh we're gonna go completely like left field on this. I sorta god the the last thirty minutes of this movie. Were or twenty minutes. Let's say. I mean it was like a kids in the hall. Sketch it was. It looked like crass they tried to be over the top and it was like they repeated. The same thing happened numerous times all comedic levels and then it turned into like basically a yosemite sam mexican standoff gets the so again the home invasion crime thing so i won't ruin this too much but there is a huge twist. That was a huge choice in giggles from being crimes. That are being this home. Invasion thing always sudden. How do you have revenge kind of weird thing going on. That completely. caught me off guard. Who was there a bill to that that you guys know what. The previous like thirty five minutes of the movies were spent dealing with literally nothing nothing to do with any of that. Yeah so yeah so. It was a shocking twist out but it doesn't mean it's good so you mentioned the first thirty to forty minutes or however long it's there's a lot of subplots that are introduced. There's a rival gangster. There's the guy gets kicked off. Scotland yard none of this has ever reintroduced again. Did you even remember or care about. He wants to fill no no as a matter of fact that tried to. I guess it tried to be like profound with its ending but it also didn't address or the movie anything that happened previously to anything that happened. That didn't wasn't revealed in the last like five minutes of the movie it. It was like very shallow like this whole thing was like a whole lot of talking a bunch of action but nothing was resolved in any way really at all the reason why max and there was like no good guys kind of had. Their absolutely wasn't good guys. There's no one you can cheer for which leads to one of the questions. i had So a big theme of this movie is family over. Everything esp- especially in the last twenty minutes or so the mother and daughter they have some of the weirdest takes like i've ever heard like it's revealed that the father is a pretty awful person. Mike a easy scum. But they're completely fine with that like they. I felt that the movie was trying to make him out to be the hero ida too young to too. I thought the whole time thinking like well. Why do we not want this guy to get his face shop right in this instant How come nobody's at just not shooting. I was going to say like how did you. Did you realize that you complain a gun at someone for that long. That pissed without pulling a trigger not know that i did not. Yeah i didn't think so i. We live in texas. So do that was that was impressive. Self control in even switzerland amazing. What did you think of that. So there's a. I guess a pivotal scene where the cop has a very long conversation with the bartender. What did you think of that scene. And just that bartender. In general i was just waiting for the kiss amazing. Wasn't this bartender who i don't think he'd ever met an well. No he never met him because he's like. Oh i knew your father which is also kind of weird. 'cause they look like they were the same age but But let me tell you something about your dead with you. And then he proceeds to give this guy like the winning he gives them the advice like totally changed his life around. He's like i'm going to go home. Put on the suit and do my business. I couldn't figure this bartender elig. He was he in the film of like who was he or was he just some random house what he was. He was just a random. Here's another there's no mention of this character whatsoever. Fucking giant head fills the fucking screen for like ten minutes. It's ridiculous. I don't swim michael's when michael is making. Michael scott is making his midnights. Whatever forgot threat louis midnight. Yeah thank you. I feel like a lot of the pieces. Were very incoherent. And you could see it in the editing as well because from one scene we could be this crime boss talking to the other crime box under like you better. Not fuck around with with us again. Because it's going to be trouble and then we are cut to to now be. Yeah exactly. it doesn't fucking matter like it is just like this movie such fucking mess if it was better if it had better editing and maybe a little bit better writing it could make little bit of sense you know introduce little bit of character certain characters back stories i like fifteen minutes is like gets conversation with the prime guy another guy that's totally pointless. Exactly yeah this. This movie had short. They probably have like thirty five minutes too much movie. It's a few and they had a funny thing with this A few weeks ago we talked about the music in river. They do the exact same thing in this movie. Like the very opening scene. There's the jet plane going through this guy very suspenseful music and you're like ooh is a spy thing is it. Espionage is an action movie now just some old dude talking to his wife. I have to admit great amazing performance of a wax dummy. Really good job. I i give her props on that And also i really should say that nude scene that we were kinda like all over props to the movie for objective buying a full figured forty eight year old woman. I mean should have great yes. it's i there was if someone told me going into it. There's gonna be a very graphic nude scene would not have known it would be that woman so no and like i can't say enough about the milky i. It's you know she. I believe he has two different colored eyes. Oh it's not milky. i think so. I couldn't shit for me. She looks she. Looks like a like a viper very serpentine. This movie has quite and actually. I thought the ending was like. Who's this film four I think it's for somebody who likes guy ritchie movies but also likes softcore pornography and the combination of the two. The actress just throwing it out there. Not for nothing. He is married to the screenwriter though nemesis author with you. Daddy see or no see. This movie is trying to echo. Some sort of guy ritchie's filled world and in a world that you could probably you know you could do something like it and still fail. I don't i don't recommend this to anybody whatsoever. Not even for the new seat. F anything i tell you to stay away from that nude seeing what about you. Blake analysis. See or no see. I think you should just watch the nude scene opposite sides of the fence there over the top. I'll be the time you're of i seen is it's impressive to signal lever. I've never seen anything like that before. But the movie itself is like an easy path very very very very easy pass but if you want to see where a movie where you can clearly tell where it falls off the cliff that this is the one so. We reached the final week of summer hormones. We started on the beach where ending out at sea. We're talking about twenty nineteen seaver to spoiler warning. This is a fairly new movie. So we're gonna get into some details about the movie but nothing that'll ruin. Your enjoyment of the movie is about a scientist who are no. She's a marine biologist. I believe she said he's behavioral patterns. She mentioned that quite often She goes out to sea with a crew and their little distrustful of her. Because she's redhead and we'll get into what that means but while they're out at sea they encounter a new life form of will take you down from there so seaver before we even get into the actual movie so whether you watch this on hulu. Did you think that that opening was part of the movie. 'cause i totally did when it was like a dust invites you to watch. Oh yeah actually i was. Someone must be watching an educational video. See over something yeah. I thought that was a nice touch. Actually also to like oh. I think watching that. I thought was part of the movie. Then i realized it wasn't always like oh that's being defeat eater and word commercials on us. You know there was like a minute and a half or so before and then it got right into the year. I thought like with the intro. Dust i 'cause they have like short films on youtube so i thought i was in relation to that i was like. Oh 'cause i like seeing their sifi Short sci fi films. So i thought it was like all in relation to that. Sounds like i'm fucking down. Like i i i actually like have a pop went positive and i went to go get some popcorn because i'm in for a treat. I was bumper. It was delicious tosco brent. That is blake. I know you're not a the biggest fan of water or people hanging out in the water. There's some pretty cool oceanside shots in this Framed nor you is completely terrified. Anything scarier and you know what the way they frame the ocean and stuff like the ocean in the fourth. I always think it's effortlessly. Beautiful like any of us grab cameras. H beautiful shots of the ocean but What they do is they also add this. I thought it's very beautiful. Very very rare beautiful but it does look pretty scary which is normal in the bubble's going through it and stuff at all did a great job. Yeah i really thought. Blake and i was like man this. You must be pissing his pants. I actually you know i was. I was way more mean anything. Like this kind of puts me on the edge of my seat in general and then we'll get into it but yeah it definitely sent me on edge right away all right. So let's get to the the characters It's it's a fairly small cast because we're ninety nine percent. This movie takes place on a on a fishing trawler so we have like what seven characters. Maybe what y'all think of the characters. I thought And we saw this with the movies. At least i thought that some of the characters weren't developed as well as they could have been thought they did a really good job developing the characters in this. Yes yeah. I agree i agree. I thought You know they don't spend a lot of time doing it But they give you just enough to where it doesn't drag onto three like all right. I get it but like yeah. They move along through the are and what. They're you know i would say that. I was confused a little bit by some of the motivations of some of the characters that didn't take too much away from from my enjoyment at all. the i liked how the the main character I when i read the name. I could never say. Then they pronounced the my She she aboard How moving even told her denial. It's like oh. I'm glad they accept. It was wondering how to pronounce it. Now i've forgotten long. How in the beginning irish name. I liked in the beginning. How they immediately let you know that. She's socially awkward. She doesn't like to be around people within as the movie progress and at first she did she very standoffish from the crew. In for good recent. I think you can argue by lifetime. That's changing That changed over the course of louis. Oh yeah no. I thought the She was like a fun character to follow And showing trend of a wide variety of emotions and and a great performance. Excellent performance My one complaint A nitpick. But i think ed considering the circumstances are really makes sense. Why which she did kinda come out every show. She was slowly coming out of sheldon. There was a point like towards the end where she was just all of a sudden like take charge and that kind of through but then again considering what was going on it does make sense. there is a pretty pretty obviously in this movie. It's superstition versus science. I think comes up very very much in this very often. In one of the things is She's red headed to. There's a fisherman's tale. Fichman thing. that redheads bring bad luck. And this is repeated throughout but there's other things. They're very much about prayer and superstition where she's a scientist and she doesn't believe in anything else. It's pretty common. It's like the old versus new type of thing. I thought it was done very well in this film. I don't agree with you. They they don't really beat you over the head with too much And then they also kind of give you like like there's some questions to that all that stuff brought up a couple of times but they do. It's all real smooth. It's all pretty subtle. And i appreciate it not. Yeah yeah i the yeah. I i guess i have to echo the same thing that everything was very like well-crafted in this film and i was gone for a week so i don't know if you guys like decided to watch like the nest and then this like if this was like kinda like guys'll kind of like thought about it but it it did remind me of how the nest was with attention and how this movie did better the tension short even though it wasn't it you know being subtle and it's all like they're gotta love fishermen stories right now i love. I love like weird. Sees like tails and stuff. Yeah i thought it was built. I included all about. Is i think the writing was very good because the title story you can very easily and very quickly go over the top but they very much kept it an even keel and they only got crazy when they needed to in this movie and i appreciate that narrower. You mentioned the tension. Danny suspense very important. Part of this movie So danny you're mentioning that it worked for you at least better than the nessa. Did you find the movie. suspenseful blake. Yeah i did Especially you know. There's kind of a ramp up happening about three quarters through as you would expect but It kind of hearkens and it was. I think maybe a little bit of demise but like it you know there's some scenes in it. The reminded me like the thing know like this test going on. That's very like a boy you know like who's gonna who's gonna have this affliction and On top of just like on top of their shitting the water their shit inside themselves at. It's a combination of everything. So you really. There's no safety outside safety inside. So yeah i thought the attention was extremely well portrayed in came across great d think that i think you mentioned that yet have stuff going on inside their stuff going on outside They're also lost at sea. They can't get in contact with each other. They purposely went off course. Did you feel like there was too much going on sometimes. Good question maybe. A little there was like a superfluous. You know traveled to another boat to find dead people. Kind of situation The that was. I don't wanna say it was unneeded because that kind of gets the ball rolling in a different direction but I there was a lot to say it was too much. Maybe maybe yeah i you know. It's funny because i didn't really think about it being too much i felt everything was kinda like set pieces so it kinda so all. We need to get here to this point. Okay cool coats over now. Now we're following the characters But i never thought it was like too much now that you bring it up though. I'm like oh yeah. I guess you're right but it's not of yet. I think you've been in stand out right. Yeah the only reason. I like it. There is a lot going on and i think he can make the argument that it's you lunch but i think it works in this but every time they would mention something new. I would kind of laugh at me like of course there is. It was our now. Yeah exactly it's like. oh so. she's pregnant now. Oh so this is only non. Oh so yeah. it's like. Oh you went there on purpose. It's okay okay. I was like okay now. It's like they were almost a like. They had the story and they had a very good story at a time but as they were filming. It's like ooh. Let's had with Core movies especially like really. There's only any louis When it comes to romance is one of two things it's gonna happen and usually it's the main character is gonna fall in love with someone that's going to happen or they're just not going to be any sort of love interest and you're like oh this is what we had. No love interest this thing. This kind of combines. The two which i thought was really strange. Yeah i liked it. Actually i thought it was kinda i mean. It was funny but it kinda was like you did it. Yeah you feel like oh man. She's she's really shenandoah. Or whatever like really really doing a great job. she's really coming out of rachelle like this guy. He's kind of a hunk allies. Eyeballs just exploded. Yeah yeah and it's like from the beginning. They've i kind of like he's been friendly with her. He's trying to explain what see fever is. He's trying to keep her calm and everything and and you know where things are headed and you know. They almost very typical. Seen the almost. Have the kiss their interrupted and then the eyeballs explore What did you think of the of the there are. There are effects in this week. Quite a few actually. So what did you think of. The effects of the movie loved it. It was great it was great. Use of fuck can visual or special. I couldn't really tell what it was but man win it like at least with that one scene. I don't really wanna see too much because it's gonna give out too much. Yeah it seems that. I enjoyed with Popping no yeah. I always appreciate gu l. time goo goo film then like also like great use of like. Hey let's take a look at this thing or under the microscope. Oh shit like i. I liked all the subtle stuff like they didn't really have to go to the top and you know shift from the sea is already discussing. So let's stay in that realm if Anyone who's familiar with bought flies guard the this movie will kinda e kind of get a sense of what it is if you don't know about plays are there's there's a ton of videos on youtube about bought fly removal and that gives you an idea of what's going on in this at times. It's it's gory. I think they do a good job of keeping it to a minimum. But the scene that you have i thought were Impressively gordon what did you think of the gory in this movie. Yeah i liked it I didn't think it was over the top Thought it was. You know anytime like is are missing. I find effective. It's always effective to me. And i thought they'd get a job with that like it didn't look real. It's only looked real and then just the idea. Sometimes it's subtle where it's just like you know a body shaped blanket tied up with rope. You know as those start to accumulate. Even that as an effect is effective at thought. That was i think if he weeks ago we talked about doing one on on. I trauma like the of march. So that's not very likely and this'll be perfect because irish the I trauma is like such an easy like i think. Ninety nine percent of people will be affected by any sort of horror and this one and the first one because it just comes out of nowhere in so good. Yeah which are. The best scares So this movie and this is nothing to do with the writing or the performances or anything this is completely unintentional. It has a very very important part of this movie is a very infectious disease and they have to quarantine themselves now. We're gonna see a lot of movies that have done that in the past probably going to see more of that in the future but movies from pre pandemic. Can you ever look at them the same when they say things like that because when they said that and it didn't ruined the movie doesn't make it better. It doesn't do anything for the movie. But when they say oh like we got a quarantine ourselves to protect everyone else like my ears per cup up immediately. Yeah mine Having the opposite effect. I'm like oh corentin. So it's a stock can be that bad. Just put on a mask and drink some Clorox and you'll be okay. I objected history. And my i never got coveted gonna improve into work like not only. Do we know the future. We also our medical experts here see fever. it's on hulu. See who the blake author with you at fever from twenty nineteen see or no c. Vive fever yes. I have fever.

I i was surprised and pleasantly surprised through the whole thing and I recommend it. And danny i also recommended. It's probably one of the things i've seen this week. That's high praise. Yes very high priced I definitely recommend it. Is this something it had one of the things that that are also reminded me and this is gonna be a dealbreaker for you listener but it did remind me a little bit of like alien as well because the ocean so expensive and nobody can hear you scream also has a little bit of the abyss going on in there. It really did. We really did. Yeah this is my as it's like nemesis was an easy nosy. This is an easy army.
