One Year After The First Step Act 2019-12-23
"The Hey it's the takeaway on December twenty third I'm WNYC's Shumita. Basu in for tenzing Vega Today on the podcast one year After the passage of a bipartisan criminal justice reform at a look at what the measure has achieved. I think the first APP actually opened a door and the eyes is of many people for those who are incarcerated formerly incarcerated plus with Christmas just days away. We'll hear how non-christians in the United States are celebrating reading at this time of the year in their own ways putting the Havana history proves that we are one and the solidarity and this kindness and this love is in a way a form of a little resistance and itself and why some Lgbtq fans have a bad feeling about a brief moment of queer representation. Listen in the new star wars it makes them get to seem progressive without actually having to be progressive and that's kind of the way that they play their publicity game all right. Let's get into it. We start with the first step act one year ago president. Then trump passed a law that promised criminal justice reform across the country. We call it the first step back. I sort of like the idea of just calling. Criminal Justice. Justice reform the bipartisan first. Step at authorized the early release of federal prisoners who were convicted of low level drug offenses and have worked through rehabilitation programs and one year later. More than three thousand inmates have been released. One of them is Nora. Yahya I did ten years in Danbury and then lowered my security level to camp and from there I was released upon the F. Essay which put me out out March eleventh two thousand nineteen which took off approximately three years of my sentence. Nora was in for possession and intent to distribute cocaine. Oh Kane I think one of the excitement of the first act is that people could get closer to the families and continue that Bonn for Nora besides sites being away from her children incarceration meant enduring painful health issues with no relief while I was incarcerated. My leg start hurt. Sunni in I also had like two lumps in my legs so one night I couldn't even get up. They actually had a call to amraams but it was only after her release this year that she was finally able to undergo back surgery completely. Change all the pain in my legs. I feel like one hundred percent percent like the person I was prior to all even after the long-overdue medical treatment for Nora re entry was challenging it. It was very hard not just technology wise. That's that's something in its own south. That was hard and very challenging also started out in a new state which which is New York but I had to start over with my children. Who are who aren't children? Who are adults now but the first step act led her to criminal final justice reform organizations that helped guide her post incarceration life? They introduced me to a computer round. There was just the basics of surf. The Internet are net things that are just totally foreign to me. They also helped me with my medical assistance because I hadn't had the proper medical treatment and I also took a program. I'm to become license for food handler. Now Nora works as an advocate for people who are incarcerated. I think the first step actually opened the door in the eyes of many people for those who are incarcerated for me incarcerated for more on the first step act and where it is one year in. I'm joined by Jonathan Terry Policy Advisor at John. Jay College of Criminal Justice and Louis L. read national organizer for cut fifty a bipartisan initiative. To cut crime and incarceration in half across the country. Thanks to both of you for being here on the show. Thanks for having me on Jonathan. I tell us how the first step act is intended to work when it comes to early release so the first step back includes several provisions for Federal Prison Reform it eliminates the three strike rule which is a law wow that was originally meant to provide harsher punishments for those who have several federal convictions so previously you could get a life sentence. Thanks for having three convictions. Convictions that's been reduced to twenty five years. Since it also extends the two thousand ten Fair Sentencing Act which which reduced the disparity that could be given in a sentence for selling crack cocaine versus powder cocaine also brings people closer to home. Ideally really five hundred. Miles is now limit that people are supposed to be allowed to be away from home wind and the federal prison it includes a lot of other quality of life you might right say provision for federal prisons as well so women who are pregnant are no longer able to be shackled juveniles longer able to be put in solitary confinement Also expanded re entry programs which was mentioned a little bit before so the process of going back into society after prison is a AH arduous one and so the first step act Apportioned millions of dollars for a lot of those programs to help people as they enter. It was also meant to create risk assessment tools which look at someone record and various other factors to decide whether whether or not they are arrested society and that way Ideally we are able to look at people allow them to exit from prison. And no because this person isn't going to be arrested anyone we feel okay letting them out even potentially earlier. Let me ask you about sentence reduction because as I mentioned just a minute ago more than three thousand awesome people have been released now under this act. Can you explain what the process looks like for them to have gotten their sentences reduced right so a lot of the the people who are having their sentences reduced were originally sentenced in the seventies and eighties as part of the war on drugs and so the first step actor. It just says that since we sentence people differently now We are going to look at those instances that were given before and if they are no longer in line with what we what sentence you currently we are going to reduce those sentences Many of them. Those incidences are reduced through petition. Some are reduced dramatically There is also an expansion in of good time. Which says that if you are incarcerated? But you're taking part in programs that are meant to rehabilitate you. Whether that's job training or drug treatment or something of that sort you can have time taken off of your sentence and so there are different provisions to allow people to reduce their sentences and about a thousand seven hundred people have gotten Martin reductions in their sentence Since the first step back into law and there's a reduction of about six years average for people who have that reduction Lewis. Let me bring you into the conversation. Jonathan just mentioned the war on drugs in the seventies and eighties. This act is mainly aimed at people who were arrested. During at that time period many of them were black men. What do we know about the demographics of the people who've been released under the APP so far you for decades the criminal justice a conversation tation among our political leaders especially both on the state and national level could be characterized as a race to the bottom? It was a competition for who could be the toughest on crime who lock up the most people in throw away the key It was also a conversation that was defined by dangerous rhetoric with no regard for empathy. The or second chances. In essentially a dehumanized people I was one of those individuals that was in that conversation in two thousand. I was sentenced to a term of imprisonment of one hundred eighty eight months and for our listening audience I don't want to Belabor the point in terms of you using your fingers and toes trying to figure that out. Oh that's approximate deaths. Approximately sixteen years. I served almost fourteen years off that sixteen year. Federal prison sentence for White collar related offenses most of the individuals by whom I was incarcerated with were not individuals that had got caught up in the war on drugs. It's in the seventies and eighties. In fact these individuals Were caught up in the mid ninety two the early two thousands Especially after after the nine hundred ninety four Clinton Crime Bill Ninety one percent of the individuals that were released under that particular provision at Jonathan talked about as as it relates to the crack cocaine provision ninety one percent of those individuals were African Americans. So let me just quantify these numbers of for you for second to dates seven thousand people total have been released under the first step act I should say seven thousand people. Total have have received significant can't reductions And they have been released under the first step back. Ninety one percent of those individuals happen to be African. American who African Americans who were sentenced under those draconian of crack cocaine laws Particularly pointing back to nineteen eighty seven moving up to nine hundred ninety four and and Up to date until about approximately two thousand ten that has totaled that seven thousand number that has totaled approximately seventeen thousand years of human freedom that have been restored back to our community. Now think about this in the Christmas. Season Jesus was crucified. Approximately approximately two thousand years ago. And if we look at the numbers that actually places us back into B. C.. So I think that this is something that a significant I am literally Pulled over on the side of the road Twenty minutes away from MDC Brooklyn where. I am going to be with family. Who is going to have their loved? One Return back to them In this Christmas season after having served twenty years on a life sentence in that individual is going to be released as as a result as a result of the first act and that's as a result of the advocacy With people such as myself to. PK Sam David. Sylvian Cut Fifties co-founder Van Jones and Jessica Jackson and the many other advocates and organizations that was in his Bipartisan coalition and. Make sure that we got this bill across the finish line. Louis let me ask you something. Because one of the acts major provisions as John mentioned earlier was to place incarcerated individuals within a five hundred mile radius of their families that they would be closer to them. Why was that such an important part of this legislation? Yes so the reason why. The five hundred mile provision is significantly the important within the first step act is because it does one of several things number one in make sure is that individuals are connected with their families and that those relationships are cultivated between parents and their children number two it brings about a level of proximity to the individual individual who was incarcerated and also to the community and number three it actually reduces the probability of individuals who are incarcerated from from participating and issues that very well could bring about institutional infractions so for instance if an individual is in proximity to of their last last known address and they know that they are potentially going to see their mother their father the family members a significant others etc.. They're going to be less likely early. To be an engaged in fights assaults you know in the likes thorough Jonathan. The acts when it was passed last year it was hailed by president. Trump is a huge chief. -Ment in being able to bring the two parties together as Lewis mentioned. It was largely a bipartisan effort. Why did this act appeal to politicians on on both sides of the aisle so criminal justice reform brings people together in part because there's a strong moral Push for it. It's hard to to argue and a lot of cases that someone who may have made a mistake should be put away for such a long time It's also incredibly expensive. We spend billions of dollar incarcerating people Especially here in the United States. We have the world's largest prison population we do. We have over two point one million people in prison in the United States leads And I think that whether regardless of where you fall politically you can see that we are wasting a lot of money on putting people in cages from those people could be contributing to the economy. Those people could Be With their families and so it really brings people together on either side. And of course Jared Kushner has a father who was incarcerated and so he understands some of issues that are being That are at play here and he was able to help assure along the the political coalition That pushed through the first step back and I think that we are also thinking a lot. About mass incarceration The fact that we do have so many people put away The draconian laws that were just mentioned have really torn apart communities. And we're able to you now fight that together and I think everyone can see the value in that Lewis. I know that you're very involved in communities where people are returning home from prison. Can you talk about some of the the biggest hurdles for them. Once they're out. Yeah absolutely so I think there are things that are obvious and show up in a stat sheets you know these are the things in terms himself. Employment Housing Insecurities ETC likes thereof. I think that one of the major issues Dad I act seeks to remedy is the simplicities of things such as not having an identification card Wanted to provision visions within a bill actually requires all federal people who are being released to make sure that they have access to appropriate identification when you think about that that may not necessarily seem like much quote unquote much but when you think about how an individual could potentially Have incidental contact with with police. A with Wi- with law enforcement and that individual potentially have their term of supervision Violated because of incidental contact because he or she may not may be in a place where they may be accosted by the police. They could be Riding as a passenger in a vehicle An officer ask for that individuals identification that individual can't produce it because he or she has not necessarily secured it because you need an ID a d just to get an ID and all the bureaucracy involved with that that individual could actually be you know a hauled into the local police department apartment just to check out who they who they are and when they are there that could potentially trigger a violation for police contact. So you know Vera things in terms of like employment yes people need to be back And or Not even back because most of the individuals who are actually incarcerated they they may not necessarily have had employment in the first place so they they need to enter into our workforce. They need to make sure that they have adequate housing. They need to make sure that they have access to appropriate health care treatment etc and so one of the things that we're doing it cut. Fifty is one of the several following. We have partner Wickliffe through our relationship with Kim Kardashian. They have given US ten thousand a free lift rideshare credits that we are distributing to individuals who are being released under the first step so that they can have access to You know just you know employment opportunities healthcare opportunities etc Healthcare appointments etc.. Say in addition we have also partnered with talk space. Talk space the online therapeutic a platform so that individuals can decompress from what I call The new PTSD in prison traumatic stress disorder. So that they can. Have you know a safe place just is to you know. Talk about the the TRAUMAS or indoor the vicarious trauma that they've actually observe as a result of being car serrated. Let Me Bring Jonathan back in here for just a moment because because this law I should mention affects people incarcerated at the federal level. It doesn't even touch the roughly one point three million people in state prisons. The sentence are we seeing similar reform movements at the state level. Jonathan the federal system incarcerates more than any individual state system but the state systems account for the vast majority of people in prison so the federal system is about ten percent of the total. US prison population. And so we. We are seeing some of these reforms being put in place Not all of them are prison reform. Some of them are broader criminal justice reforms but Where they are being put in place? really depends news on the state. New York is just past new bail laws which are going to affect shortly and twenty twenty year in the New Year and Other places are thinking about you know legalizing marijuana or thinking about how do we safely race past convictions. And some of that is happening through. Who advocate some of? It is happening through Progressive District Attorney's And so at the state level. Not only do you have more people incarcerated but you have in some ways a more complicated it system just because so many different actors are involved in making particular decisions And so we do. See these reforms but it'll be harder urge to push through in a lot of ways on the state level Just to get everyone on board. And let's talk about politics now on the federal level because many advocates have acknowledged the first step act is a major victory but they've also mentioned that the next step is focusing on those who've been found guilty of violent offenses and perhaps even rethinking policing on a grander scale. Would either of those approaches be able to gain bipartisan support in your opinion Jonathan. That's really hard to say a lot of previous bills that were not able to be passed. lost a lot of support. Because they were. They pushed the too far of advocates. Say That I didn't go far enough because it doesn't eliminate mandatory minimums Because it doesn't push far enough on good time credits We're wondering about what is electric monitoring do there is a new Thought Within Criminal Justice Reform Circle that we are moving towards e commerce ration- where People's information will be collected And where we'll know where someone is at all times we'll have a certain amount of information built up which is a different kind of Captivity Anyway and so there are a lot of sort of fights that that are yet to be had but violent crime in particular is a really difficult I think even For people on the left who are have been pushing for various various kinds of criminal justice reform for years Thinking about releasing someone who you know may have sold drugs at some point. It's very different from thinking about what do we do with someone who it might have heard someone on the street may have even killed someone And so those will be much harder battles and I at this. Point can't quite see receiving leaving bipartisan support. But the first step act was fantastic because it showed that there is some possibility I was once told doing this. Work that if you don't believe that you can make a difference in push forward. Then why are you doing the work at all so I'll stay optimistic. Jonathan Terry is a policy advisor at John. Jay College of Criminal Justice and Louis L. Read is a national organizer therefore cut fifty. Thanks to both of you for joining us. Thanks for having me on I everyone I'm Shumita Basu from. WNYC filling in for ten Zena Vega and this is the takeaway. Christmas is almost here. But I'm sure I didn't have to tell you that Christmas music has been playing in stores since November Colorful Christmas lights have been up for weeks and commercials featuring Santa Claus seemed to be on a never ending loop but there are millions of people in this country. Three who don't celebrate Christmas at least not in the traditional sense we asked you how you celebrate the season in your own way. Here's the story of why we put a hit job on our Christmas tree. That's Isabela a New Yorker who happens to be the roommate of takeaway associate producer Jamaica. Verma this year. She has chosen to decorate her Christmas tree with a hit job. It's kind of funny because growing up. I did celebrate Christmas in a way but not necessarily early religious. The more so culturally. I grew up in a mixed household of Christian Pakistan Muslim beliefs and my dad never felt completely comfortable being from August on not celebrating celebrating Christmas himself. Growing up never felt comfortable giving presents or decorating the tree but did so for solidarity of my mother now. Isabella lives in a household with other people from the South Asian diaspora and with political turbulence around the world and especially hostility toward Muslims. uh-huh she says lacing the job on the tree demonstrates two things pride in her upbringing and a kind of solidarity so something as simple as putting the hip hop on a Christmas Christmas tree when everything else was happening all over the globe with the South Asian diaspora trying to disconnect. Just trying to separate US prove that we are different. This putting avenue. Christmas tree proves that we are one and the solidarity and this kindness. This love is in a way form of a little resistance in itself all right so we invited you to tell us how you put your own twist on Christmas. And here's what you shared with us. Hi I'm Darla from Portland Oregon as a child who divorced I. I celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas so the side of my family that celebrates Hanukkah actually like American culture than emphasis on gift. Giving maybe spend more my mom and I exchanged a Hanukkah to get two meal every year. My Dog got twelve hundred. Plus my name is Collette O'Connor and I'm from Halifax Massachusetts. We celebrate Christmas at my my home during the day. We make sure to call relatives. Who can't be here so everyone is thought of and the remaining days for sharing gratitude which we do with a quiet meal together in conversation? Nina dual from Richmond. California my a reaction to Christmas is unsettled. I do you not feel like there's acknowledgement of other people celebrating other things we're just been bartered with red and wight Chris. This is hi. This is Rick Tomase from Needham Massachusetts. We enjoy the trappings of Christmas. But we do try to. Emphasize is the significance of the holiday from the religious aspects. THIS IS BILL IN NEW JERSEY. What we do this time of year? Is something called friends miss. It's a lot like friends. Giving it's a multicultural winter activity that's specifically nonreligious. Basically it's a night of fun. It's a night of multinational national and multi-ethnic foods and it's time to play games and hang out with the people that you really love. Thanks for sharing. All of your thoughts. I'll share with you now all my spin on the holiday. This is my first married Christmas. My husband and I did the thing. A few months ago in a nondenominational ceremony and I was raised in a house that it didn't really celebrate Christmas. My Dad is Indian and my mom is Iranian now. My husband coming from an Italian family was an is really big. Uh on Christmas so this year I added a little flair to our Christmas free. I strung up our read. Gold White Indian garland's the girl is that we exchanged changed as part of our wedding celebration. I think they make a very fitting addition to our tree this year and I imagine for years to come and remember you can always give us a call and share. Are Your thoughts at eight. Seven seven eight my take now. We'll look at other ways that the Christmas creep influences the whole month of December namely its impact on another religious holiday to help. I understand the history of how Christmas shape Hanukkah celebrations in America. We're joined by two guests. Emma Green is a staff writer at the Atlantic where she covers politics politics policy and religion. Emma welcome back to the takeaway things so much and Jonathan. SAARNA is a professor of American Jewish history at Brandeis University Jonathan within thank you for joining us joy to Byu. Jonathan many people assume that Hanukkah is one of the most important holidays Judaism because of its strong cultural presence since in the United States. But that's not exactly true right not exactly true. In early America you would have a hard time finding much evidence. It's the Jews talked about. Hanukkah the high holidays or important Passover is very important hannukah really emerges emerges in the nineteenth century they talk about in the eighteen seventies the revival of the Jewish wish national holiday of Hanukkah and gift-giving actually shifts from another holiday known as Purim to Hanukkah and and then of course Hannukah is magnified through the twentieth century in response to the magnification of Christmas. And let me let Emma cut in there. Because you've written about this as well. Why did Hanukkah become the Jewish response to Christmas in the United States? You see in the middle of the Twentieth Twentieth Century after the war when Jews are moving to the suburbs there starting these synagogues and trying to join country clubs and in general general. Have the American experience that we think of so stereotypically in the nineteen fifties and I think we see that today were Hanukkah has now been elevated to be kind of the equal and opposite reaction to Christmas something to give Jewish children feeling that they can fit in just like the Christian children who are celebrating Christmas at their schools us. How are those efforts met? In the United States it was common to find Jews. Even Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis had a Christmas Christmas tree and lots of Jews sang secular Christmas carols. It's not surprising that some of those carols roles were really written by Jews like Irving Berlin about A White Christmas of the feel of the lights lights and so on but the East European Jews some of whom had very negative associations with Chris Smith's in the lands that they came from Remembering that these were a days when they were frightened persecuted. They certainly certainly were not going to take on Christmas. And as we move through the twentieth century we see Konica. Aw arising as a kind of Jewish answer to Christmas Cindy there were some Jews who tried to tell their children. Oh you're so oh lucky. Hanukkah is eight days of gifts but the sense was. Let's have something that distinguishes us us Emma sitting across from me and nodding her head here. How was Hannukah celebrated before it started to grow in popularity here in the US as a response wants to Christmas well one of the interesting things about Hanukkah religiously is that it actually doesn't have that much of a starring role role in the Jewish calendar? There aren't that many obligations that go with Hanukkah and you don't have to spend that much time in synagogue especially relative to Yunky poor four or Russia. Shawna what's interesting to me about. Hanukkah is that it has been able to take this out size role in the American public imagination in part because Jews were free to go out and celebrate publicly. They could take their minora to a friend's house or have friends over to light the candles but it's also because is it's kind of a low-key holiday and so there's a lot of freedom and flexibility about how people celebrate. Jonathan maybe you can talk to us a little bit more about efforts by Jews in the United States early on to adopt Christmas as a secular holiday. Do you think that Hanukkah could become secular in a similar way. I I think that there are many Jews who observe Hannukah who do not view it as having in deep religious content might even have a hard time talking much about its history And and in that sense it has grown secularize up but at the same time. I'm very struck. By how recent is that. Hanukkah did move into the public square as late as the nineteen fifties store. Windows did not have Konica Konica even in New York and a you didn't see minorities out on the streets that's really a development that begins wins in the nineteen seventies with the Kabba religious organization. And they actually have several court cases in which sure they have to fight for the right to have a Hanukkah minora in the public square. That right is eventually confirmed by the Supreme Court which really says that the Konica Minora is in a way equivalent legally speaking to the Christmas tree. If one could in the public square the other can be in the Public Square in fact Jonathan. I want to jump in here because Emma wrote about this decision and you found actually but the supreme court treated aided Christmas trees in public a little bit differently than Minora's and public is that right. Well one of the questions that was at stake here and there have been a series of cases about out. This issue is whether something like the Nativity scene which we see in All sorts of public spaces is the equivalent of the minora weather weather that can be in a government building or a government owned park. And there's a a sort of differentiation here that the court uses or the legal legal thinking uses which is to say there's a difference between some sort of overtly religious symbol that seems to be an expression of what the government believes or supports ports versus these communal symbols. That we now see ubiquitously even at a courthouse building or add a government administrative building. You you see that kind of equality and equal weight give into something that shows a public expression of what these various groups in the United States celebrate at this time I feel. There's a lot of hand wringing over the commercialization of the holidays whether that's Christmas or Hanukkah. How would you say that gift-giving has or has ever been part of the tradition of Hanukkah one universal principle that I think guides Christmas and Hanukkah and maybe even holiday holiday celebrations around this time for families? That don't celebrate. Those two holidays is that we love consumer capitalism here in the United States and right now at this season we see from every corner stores and malls everyone trained to incentivize more more gift giving and this is something that's lamented seasonally. Everyone trying to say. Oh these holidays you have a deeper meaning about family or about faith not about gift giving but really million American culture we see that this all consuming force this incentive to buy stuff especially for your kids has been able to take over these holidays days so in some ways even though Hanukkah has been set apart as a separate holiday I separate people there really is a lot. That's overlapping about Hanukkah and Christmas Christmas. We've been talking mainly about what happens when Jewish populations from other parts of the world I came to America and were attempting to assimilate but are there other examples of people from other religions other faiths coming to America and sort of adapting their practices to the American Christmas culture. Sure Jonathan another example of this is what we've seen with the wally as something festival of Lights Celebrated in this season of the year and there are other groups. I think that have learned from Jews that you can simultaneously be part of the season and apart from it which is really what I think. The Jewish community has tried to do over the the last two decades. Emma I feel like we've spent a lot of this conversation. Framing this as if only negative things have come out of the Christmas vacation of other other holidays but what the positive effects is a good for all of us in the US to share celebrations at this time of year. You know I think the story of Christmas is a very American story in the sense that as we've been discussing it's become a shared celebration. That has a lot of secular meaning and takes over over our shopping malls in our streets but it just as much of an American story to have different groups of people whether their ancestors came over as Jews who's in the nineteenth century to whether their parents and grandparents are recent immigrants from the seventies or eighties or nineties. And I think that's such an American story because in some ways this is a country that's made up of people who come from all of these different places and traditions and who figure out their own spin on those traditions in the American in context. There's so much diversity here. Around this time of year you see Orthodox Christians who celebrate Christmas a few weeks later than Roman Catholics or Protestants artists in much of the United States. You see Muslims. who have figured out ways like going bowling or trying to avoid shopping malls of relating to the Christmas celebration Gratien and you have a lot of families who are both families so both Hanukkah and Christmas or Christmas and a little something else or Hanukkah and a little something else? All all of these stories to me are very much the Americanise of this time of year people trying to figure out how their particular identity should be in relation to to this Reason for the season that we call Christmas. Emma Green is a staff writer at the Atlantic where she covers politics policy and religion and Donovan. SAARNA is a professor of American Jewish history at Brandeis University. Thanks to both of you for joining me. Think so maverick you this is the takeaway from WNYC NPR wrecks in collaboration with W. G. B. H.. Radio in Boston Wjr this weekend. The third and final installment of the latest Star Wars Saga hit theaters. The rise of Skywalker ties together. The previous eight films news in just under two and a half hours and in that time it also managed to sleaze in something that those other films left out that there are LGBTQ TQ plus people in a galaxy far far away and in the case of the LGBTQ community. You know it was. It was important to me that people go to see the smooth. Feel that they're being represented in the film. Director J.J. Abrams during an interview with variety earlier. This month in the lead up to the film's release. He hinted there would the real LGBTQ representations in the rise of Skywalker but when the film premiered last week it was finally revealed that two minor her female characters kiss during split-second seen many are saying it's yet another example of a major Hollywood franchise teasing LGBTQ Hugh Representation and then not following through in a meaningful way joining me now is Kyle Buchanan pop culture reporter at the New York Times Kyle. Hi Hi thanks for being on the show having also with me is emily vander were critic at large for Vox Emily Hi welcome. It's so great to be here now. I don't I WANNA spoil too much for our listeners. Who Haven't seen the movie? So let's leave plot aside as much as we can but both of you have seen the movie kyle. Maybe you can start by telling us about the same sex kissing in the New Star Wars movie and why it's gotten such a big reaction. Sure I'd be happy to tell you. Because I think people who've actually wash the movie if they blinked might have missed it so let me fill them in as well. There is an extremely brief moment in the third act. Where a character? We're who has had at that point. Maybe two lines certainly wasn't named kisses her female partner in a victory celebration of sorts parts goes by extremely fast. And you know it's that had been a thing that people had seen in nineteen seventy seven say when the first star wars film came out. It would've been pretty pretty significant but I think the irony here is that especially this last film. The rights of skywalker is doing so much. Try to satisfy fan demands. But it's it's not really doing it in a visionary bold way that would satisfy anybody's asks and requests and so even though there have been fans who've asked for the characters actors played by John Boyega and Oscar Isaac to have some sort of romantic relationship in Star Wars. This is sort of the SOP to that. And I don't think it's going to satisfy all that many people. Now we just heard the director J.J. Abrams a few minutes ago. That was him speaking during the press tour for the film and he mentioned Lgbtq Representation. He went out of his way to say it. In fact there are some critics who have called what he said now. A classic example of Queer Baiting. Emily maybe you can explain Ryan what that is so queer. Baiting is the idea that there is some sort of movie or TV. Show especially council happened with books or other forms of fictional media Where two characters who are presented as platonic friends within the text of the show then fans often become you know interested in the idea idea of them having a romantic relationship? An example of this from these new star wars movies would be thin and po who are not really presented as romantic partners nurse in that first movie. The Force Awakens but the Internet took that and ran with it and these future movies have sort of played to that interesting ways a far more egregious example was the TV show. Sherlock which recently aired with benedict cumberbatch and Martin Freeman and that show the fans started sort of shipping which means hoping to see two people. The end up together Sherlock and Watson on that show and Then yeah it did not did not transpire and it turned into like the creators of bathing. The those expectations without actually doing anything about it and you'll be really kind of a nasty way to deal with your phantom now to go back to star wars for a second and what Abrahams said during the press tour. Why the fake out? I guess it's easy to assume that dipping an ambiguous toe into LGBTQ representations is meant to appease certain audience who you want to see that representation without going so far as to anger more conservative audiences. How how much is it about that dynamic? It's definitely about out that dynamic like there is sort of this air of they're trying to sort of make the right people mad by which I mean the really extremist people who don't WanNa see any LGBTQ not queue representation and like you know if there's a two second kiss most of America's GonNa be like okay whatever but like they're also not trying to push the envelope in terms of that representation in ways that might force people to sort of rethink their preconceptions or their prejudices or anything like that. It's just like the least risky way eh to deal with this material but also in a way that gets them these headlines in you know publications that are like Oh bold new ground for the Star Wars Franchise when you see the movie and and it's literally nothing like that so it makes them get to seem progressive without actually having to be progressive. And that's kind of the way that they play their publicity game. I WANNA ask each of you. What meaningful representation would look like glad the LGBTQ media advocacy organization uses this metric that they made up? It's sort of similar to the back. Del Test they call it the Vito Russo test after glads co founder and to pass Vito Russo test. A film has to have a character that is identifiable. LGBTQ that character was not solely defined by their sexual orientation or gender identity and that character must be tied to the plot in such a way that their removal would have a significant effect. So emily why don't you start. Do those criteria sound right to you when we ask what is meaningful representation. Would you add anything to it. I certainly don't disagree with any of those criteria. I'm happy to have that sort of as a starting starting point but I think that you know there's room for stories about LGBTQ plus lives like that are actually about our lived experiences and it's not like they don't exist. There's plenty of great queer art made every year. It's just that it's not happening. In major studio franchise films I think if we're looking for a major studio franchise film to tell stories that you know fit that sort of glad description. It's not impossible but it's also like you know it's it's it's hard hard to talk about our identities and a nuanced way when aliens are invading the planet. Or something like that. So I I do think there is. There's room for improvement But a lot all the stuff that we're looking for is often happening like indie film and Television and you know stuff. That's supported by Patriarch by independent artists. I think emily is right. And I and I think that queer viewers just sort of gotten used to expecting looking for that representation elsewhere which is why it would be a significant new thing to see it in the form of the Superhero or science fiction spectacular and. I don't think it has to be you know as emily also said these films. Don't offense for very long to consider the you know the minutia of the characters in their lives but just the presence accounts for something. I mean. Events Endgame culminates with his finale. This orgiastic finale of dozens upon dozens upon dozens of characters. And you know wouldn't be so hard for just one or maybe a couple of those people to be on the spectrum somewhere That's how life is and if these movies are drawing from life and then making something super powered it just seems like a notable omission for the only only times for them to acknowledge that people exist is when they shuttle in a character for one sane.

"This message comes from NPR sponsor. Comcast business. Business has always been driven by innovators. That's why Comcast business is helping you with technology that provides better experiences. Comcast business beyond fast. Actual speeds. Vary and are not guaranteed. From NPR and WNYC coming to you from the bell house in beautiful Brooklyn, New York. It's NPR's. Our of puzzles word games trivia, asked me another. I'm Jonathan Coleman. Now. Here's your host. Oh, fear Eisenberg. Everybody. We've four brilliant contestants about to come on the show. They are backstage right now like us. They are living under a divided government, but are United in their love for trivia. And then one of them will become our big winner. And our special guest tonight is author actor illustrator ex football player. Terry crews. And you heard me say illustrator, so Terry crews actually had a art scholarship before he had a football scholarship. Yeah. I know what other actor can be like, well, if acting does a pan out, I guess, I can fall back on pro football and painting like who else can say that. And we love Terry for his brain. But since this is radio, let's talk about his other muscles because he's got a lot of muscles. Yeah. So here's here's a whole series of material that we've written on this. Terry crews is so wrapped that just looking at him counts as a work after. Terry crews is so ripped. Our producers are sowing him back together backstage right now, Terry crews is so ripped the man is like shredded like a three cheese blends any successful, Terry crews is so successful that when he hosted who wants to be a millionaire. They changed the name to who wants to be him. Terry crews has so many career wins. But he's human. He's had some disappointments. So he says one of his biggest disappointments was he was cut from the chargers. And then the team went to the Super Bowl. Right. So we said that was a really hard game to watch. I get it. I have a very hard time watching MRs Mazel. Yeah. I do. I'm like, why is she killing all the time? Or really every episode. You've a brand new five minutes. That's amazing. Like, where's the scene where you bomb in front of your family and friends? Where's the scene? Where your boyfriend tells you you're not really funny? Like, where's where's the scene where your agents like, I think you're too old? You know, where's the scene where you get bumped from your spot because Louis C K shows up, you know. Yeah. I'm just saying that it seems like as a woman it was a lot easier to do comedy in the fifties. And I do have a friend every year. This happens. I have a friend who says that they're near resolution is to do stand up comedy. I get it. I mean, it is hard to have someone kind of reduce something I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into their quirky goal for a year. But I get it. I get anyone can do it. Right. As a pretty low barrier Venturi. And and a lot of people. The first time is great. I've had beginner's luck. I mean two years ago. My New Year's resolution was to do medicine. My first surgery pretty good. I gotta say pretty good. I was the next ten surgeries where I was like, well, maybe not for me. You know, it's got learn to read your patient and the charts. So this show is part of the Brooklyn podcast festival. Although I will say that I feel like Brooklyn is a podcast festival all the time. It's pretty redundant. But in honor of the Brooklyn podcast festival. We will be playing our games at one and a half times the speed. So let's do it. Let's play some games. Everybody. Our first game is about brain surgery. But don't worry. It's not rocket science. Let's meet our contestants first step Shira, harass you work at the rabbinical assembly. So you talking with rabbis all day long. Yeah. We have a membership of about seventeen hundred living rabbis on about a thousand dead ones. And have you ever wanted to be a rabbi I have gone through phases? Everyone thinks I should be a rabbi. But now that I have this job. And I'm really learning. What it's like, I think that I know a little bit too much to be a rabbi now, can you tell me a little bit more about that? Everyone has files. Okay. She when you ring in. We're going to hear this your opponent is Liz Rodwell, you're an electronic healthcare records analyst. How does one become a 'electronic healthcare? Records analyst go to school to become a high school history teacher. Sure. Can't find a job and move on to new career? Okay. So you wanted to be a history teacher. Yes. Any of that applicable to healthcare record analysis? I actually had a concentration in political science perfect. So that works really well when you're working with physicians. So there's a lot of politics that you have to deal with it. Oh, yeah. There's I don't know. We have a penchant for having a bit of an ego. So with that, I think there God like, they think they're rabbi. Pretty much. Okay. Very good. Liz when you ring in we're gonna hear this. She ran list, whoever has more points after two games. We'll go on our final round. This is a guessing game called actually it is brain surgery in this game. Will pretend you're highly skilled brain surgeons answering brain related multiple choice questions. Okay. Here we go. You're a brain surgeon who charges by the pound, the heavier, the brain the more, you earn. So should you? Limit your practice to a cow's be orcas or see YouTube celebrities. Sheera orcas? That's right. Yes. An orca or killer whales brain is about twelve and a half pounds, human brains are three pounds YouTube celebrities, unknown. Oops. You forgot to pay the electric Bill which of these devices requires the same amount of power as the human brain to function a light bulb be single serving smoothie maker as seen on TV or see none because the human brain is essentially, powerless sheera. Smoothie maker, I'm sorry. That is incorrect. Liz, can you steal? Kind of existential. I would go with the light bulb though. Lightbulbs correct. That's right. Is that why the animation there is a light bulb over your head? When you have a good idea. That's exactly. Brain actually uses twenty. So we're talking about a very small not very important light. But. You lost your ruler. And you need to measure something. So naturally, you take all the capillaries in a human brain and stretch them out and to end what's the maximum distance? You could measure aid the distance between a soldier and their dog reuniting at the airport when the soldiers finally returned from war. Oh, I know. Let's just think about that be the distance from home plate to first base or see the distance from New York to Cleveland, sheera New York to Cleveland. Yeah. That's right. There are four hundred miles of capillaries in your brain capillaries and get all the way to Cleveland. This is your last clue brain surgery businesses been slow. Sorry, you're a brain surgeon. So you're opening a Weight Watchers next door to supplement your income. Why might you feel conflicted about this a because the brain is about six percent fat be because the brain is about sixty percent fat or see because when you lose weight your brain stops working? And all you can do is take pictures of yourself in bathing, suits. Shiro a I'm sorry. That's not right. Liz, do you know the answer? This is really tough going to go with a b sixty percent fat. That's right. The brain is sixty percent fat. Okay. Guess what? It's a great game. And right now, we have a tie. Our next game is called the sound of leadership, which to me is a confident voice ordering nachos for the table. I'll play a clip of an actor portraying a past or present world leader each clue is worth two points. One for denting the leader and one for a deadline the actor in your opponent can steal any points. You miss. So you are both in the lead right now. It's a tie so ever wins. This game is obviously going to the final round whoever loses his game. You have to play IRA glass in the annual public radio musical. Oh my gosh. It's great this year. It's Terry gross. La homa. In previous years. We've had the rocky horror pledge drive show, and Hamill tote bag. So. Here we go this clip is from a two thousand nine film forgiveness to forgiveness liberates sold. It removes fear. That is why it just such a powerful weapon. Liz Morgan Freeman playing a man that a lot of people confuse him for Nelson Mandela that is correct. Yes. That was a step down from Oregon Freeman because he's used to playing God. All right. This clip is remained nine thousand nine hundred sixty three motion picture us that Roman genius destruction down pyramids. Wipe out cities. Liz. Try Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra. I think you tried perfectly. That is correct. This clip is from two thousand and fifteen musical. Sweep these ideals. We shouldn't settle. Sheera this from Hamilton. It's a great piece of invitation. Which is not what the question was. But I'm blind no divide digs, and he is. Wait, give me a second the second act the beginning. I love this love. On his Thomas Jefferson that is correct. All right. This is your last clue this film is from two thousand and six let them eat cake, that's such nonsense. I would never say that. Liz marie-antoinette is the character. The actress is Kirsten Dunst that is cool. Okay. You guys are amazing. And after two games. Liz is going to our final round. Coming up. We'll find out who will face off against Liz in our final round and talk to Brooklyn nine nine Terry crews. He's also hosting a season of America's got talent.

Here's your host fear Eisenberg. I'm doing well. Our special guest he stars on the sitcom Brooklyn nine nine and hosts America's got talent the champions both on NBC. Please. Welcome Terry crews. I just have to describe Terry for our listeners you came out here. You did a peck dance. With the war. Now Terry back after high school you get to scholarships at the same time. You get a art scholarship visual, art scholarship and a football scholarship to scholarships. But one was to interlock an arts academy. What? Yes, it's an amazing place. It was a six week program. It was like a pre college thing then I had a really small scholarship to western Michigan university. And then I walked on to the football team in order to get a full ride football scholarship. Well, so it was a I had to go through the Rudy thing. It was a big old Rudy, basically. So then you're drafted to the NFL in one thousand nine hundred ninety one and to make extra money you actually start doing portrait's of your fellow teammates. And of people playing football exactly what you gotta say athletes are very egotistical. So I needed to make some money. So do let me paint you over the city, you know, and they loved it. And they paid me. Well, but this the thing I I got married very early. I was married in college. We had two kids very early. I got cut a lot. I'm listed as having three years NFL, but it took seven years to do. You know what I mean? Right NFO career was not glamorous at all. It was like being a Rhody a band that was kind of never going anywhere. So we lived out of suitcases when I will get cut. I was just humbled myself. I went back in the locker room and ask those guys. Hey, man. Do you would you like a painting? This is something that I do when I was showing my portfolio, and they really liked it. And it got us through perseverance wins out. Yeah. You even as you sit. Here is someone so successful, you you seem very humble and very authentic. But I imagine like when sly Stallone calls you to be in the expandable the first one you must have felt like I'm a big deal. Now, it's weird because I'll have more experiences than people are allowed to be honest. I mean, I feel like I live seventeen lives, and you know, when sly called I remember, it was a big big deal because I was literally the fourth choice on MLB, but that's fourth in the world. Yeah. Right now, this is another thing too. You gotta understand before. I started in acting. I was doing security on the movie sets. Okay. And I remember talking to my wife, and I said, you know, what? Here we are in LA. 'cause this is we're broke. And when you broke we decided, you know, at least if you're broke be broke by what you wanna do like being near it. So you could you could be broke anywhere. So I worked security, but there was a day clicked. To me, I'm twelve hours on a set at the whole thing. And I'm going this is it I'm a part of a Hollywood production, and I was like the bathrooms of this way, sir. But the thing is I remember telling my wife, she'll tell you this is a wonderful job because I get to be a wound it, and I'm gonna tell you right now. This is all so strange. But I was happy, and listen if it would ended there, I still would have been happy. I just feel that way about everything I'm doing. Just like that. And you know, what somebody will like coma? You couldn't know. Why that but let me tell you when you are the happy. You don't stay where you are. Right. It's impossible. I people like men that guy, man. I want him on my job. I want them on my show. I was the most into man's guard. The place are majoring. My sleeves rolled up. You'll nine. You know what I mean? I was posing. The bathrooms are that. All of a sudden, they were like, oh, you can't stay you. We got to put you up. You know what I mean? And a friend of mine who saw me gave me a shot and my first off dishes. I ever did. I was still security. So I went home, and I was like bait this talk about acting. What do you think she was like, we ain't got nothing now? Well. I went the first thing I ever addition for in my life. I got. Time magazine said you were the first man who made muscle funny people had decided in the comedy world. It was a foregone conclusion you get in shape. You will never be buddy. Again. I just decided hole on. I'm just gonna do me. I never wanted to be the bad ass. They made you've got to take karate classes. Oh. I did a movie Malibu's most one I remember I had a one big line in a movie, and I added live that and they would I wait a minute. And it just kept growing Damian wayans who was on that movie recommended me to his uncle's for white shit. And let me say everything that turned comedy was my way most favorite thing. I love about this as I remember standing around and making my mother laugh and my mother passed away about four years ago. But I remember it just reminded me of being at home and making her laugh stand and you're doing all this stuff. We will watch Carol Burnett, and we were reenact the skits and do all this stuff. And she was like this is good. You know? And that's all I wanted to do. I remember never being more satisfied that entertaining and making people feel happy. And now, I love the fact that this is my career. I can keep the muscle, and I can keep. Right. And on top of that, you know, your use your celebrity in your voice to speak out on things recently. You said mentioned hold one another accountable when speaking about Kevin Hart and all the publicity and controversy around that. I mean, I gotta say I feel like that takes a huge amount of courage to put yourself out there like that. I got to tell you this right now because the world is changing I got to tell you how fast it's changing right before this. I had a podcast over with today. He was just accused of sexual harassment with receipts. The question is should I do the podcast. Anyway, I've already made a commitment the whole thing. Can't so. Because you know, why I'm gonna tell you why. When you look at the hierarchy the people who are below are not believed. But people are not believed women are not believed. Poor people who are not believed immigrants, so not believed. And we gotta stop this deal is always said men need to hold other men accountable. That's it. And it will sort itself out. And let me tell you the codes around until Ray innocent. Then we can do the interview. You understand what I'm saying? But as of right now, I'm standing on the side of the women. I'm standing on the side of the people who want to have the voice heard. And I'm with you. This narrative has got the change. And I'm trying to tell you. It is changing. It will never ever be the same because there are other guys just like me in this room that are supportive of women and supportive of what this is. I'm sorry. About where? Are you ready to play a game? Right. Terry crews, you're hosting America's got talent the champions the show features memorable and fan favourite acts from previous seasons. You yourself are a man of many many talents sweet couldn't help. But. Right. A game about you. So we're bringing Jonathan Colton back out on stage to play a game. Called terry. Crews got talent. Jonathan I will describe a talent your job is simply to guess whether or not Terry crews has that talent. And terry. We'll be letting you know if you're right. Okay. Trapdoors ball. I hope not okay. Here we go. Jonathan Ken Terry crews play flute. Yes. Obviously. You got it. You got. So please explain that you are flouted others. I love the flute. This is why my great she was the matriarch of our family. She said what instrument? Do you won't be? I remember trying to go outside and play. She was actually in my way, you know. Okay. And I ran pastor my brothers that tar turnaround for the holiday. There's a flu underneath a tree and he gets into child like. I should've said my mother said she bought you that go play you gotta learn it. I played the blue for probably seven eight years. And I loved it. I mean, it's my own blaxploitation movie, dude. Okay. Jonathan was Terry crews at one point a courtroom sketch artist. I'm going to guess because of his studying art, and is artistic background might be a thing that you would do at least once. Okay, terry. Yes. Bingo. Yes. I was hoping for college my first year after my freshman year. My father said you need a job you can draw on taking down a TV twelve. Oh, man. Okay. Draw? All right. I just wanna to get out of there. Right. The art director comes up from the basement. And that's why they keep art directors. And he starts looking all the and he's like, I'll give him a job. And what happened is the biggest court case in Flint Michigan history. Sakado court sketch artists could not make it. So they ran downstairs where we were in the basement, and they said Terry, can you go to the courtroom right now can use gets up we need tonight. I'll say, yeah. I did never done it before there. I was getting everything and it put it on the TV that night. And my mother was like she was so proud. It was the my first job and entertainment, actually. All right. Jonathan did. Terry crews study the art of French pastry. You know, I'm starting to feel like. Are any of these? It'd be no. If you tell me, it just seems like Terry crews so far can do anything. Onto something. And I'm going to say as unlikely as it sounds that he would have been able to fit in some study of French pastry into this very busy life. I'm gonna say, yeah. Sure. He does. No. But I went to Dominic yesterday had a grown up, man. Jonathan does Terry crews build his own computers. Yes. He does. First of all, okay. I'm going to my son. He's watching a computer.

Terry Crews: The Man's Got Talent
"From NPR and WNYC coming to you from the bell house in beautiful Brooklyn, New York. It's NPR's. Our puzzles word games trivia, asked me enough. I'm Jonathan Coleman. Now, here's your host, oh, fear Eisenberg. Everybody. We've four brilliant contestants about to come on the show. They are backstage right now like us, they are living under a divided government, but are United in their love for trivia, and then one of them will become our big winner. And our special guest tonight is author actor illustrator expert ball player. Terry crews. And you heard me say illustrator, so Terry crews, actually had a art scholarship before he had a football scholarship. Yeah. What other actor can be like, well, if acting does a pan out, I guess, I can fall back on pro football and painting like who else can say that? And we love Terry for his brain. But since this is radio. Let's talk about his other muscles because he's got a lot of muscles. Yeah. So here's, here's a whole series of material that we've written on this. Terry crews is so wrapped that just looking at him counts as a work after. Terry crews is so ripped our producers are so in back together backstage right now Terry crews is so ripped the man is like shredded, like a three cheese, blends, any successful, Terry crews is so successful that when he hosted who wants to be a millionaire, they changed the name to who wants to be him. Terry crews has so many career wins, but he's human. He's had some disappointments. So he says, one of his biggest disappointments was he was cut from the chargers. And then the team went to the Super Bowl. Right. So we said that was a really hard game to watch. I get it. I have a very hard time watching MRs Mazel. Yeah. I do. I'm like, why is she killing all the time? A really every episode you've a brand new five minutes. That's amazing. Like, where's the scene where you bomb in front of your family and friends? Where's the scene? Where your boyfriend tells you you're not really funny? Like, where's where's the scene where your agents like I think you're too old. You know, where's the scene where you get bumped from your spot because Louis C K shows up, you know. Yeah. I'm just saying that it seems like as a woman, it was a lot easier to comedy in the fifties. And I do have a friend every year. This happens I have a friend who says that they're nears resolution is to do stand up comedy. I get it. I mean, it is hard to have someone kind of reduce something I've put a lot of blood sweat, and tears into their Corky goal for a year. But I get it. I get anyone can do it. Right. As a pretty low barrier of entry, and a lot of people, the first time is great. I've had beginner's luck. I mean two years ago, my years resolution was to do medicine, my first surgery pretty good. I gotta say pretty good. I was the next ten surgeries where I was like. Well, maybe not for me. You know, it's got learned to read your patient and the charts. So this show is a part of the Brooklyn podcast festival out, although I will say that I feel like Brooklyn is a podcast festival all the time. It's pretty redundant. But in honor of the Brooklyn podcast festival, we will be playing our games at one and a half times. The speeds let's do it. Let's play some games. Everybody. Our first game is about brain surgery, but don't worry. It's not rocket science. Let's meet our contestants. First step Shira, harass you work at the rabbinical assembly. So you are talking with rabbis all day long. Yeah. We have a membership of about seventeen hundred living rabbis on about a thousand dead ones. And have you ever wanted to be a rabbi? I have gone through phases. Everyone thinks I should be a rabbi but now that I have this job, and I'm really learning what it's like I think that I know a little bit too much to be a rabbi. Now can you tell me a little bit more about that? Everyone has files. Okay. She when you ring in we're going to hear this your opponent is Liz Rodwell. You're an electronic healthcare records analyst, how does one become a electron healthcare records analyst, go to school to become a high school history teacher. Sure. Job and move on to a new career. Okay. So you wanted to be a history teacher. Yes. Any of that applicable to healthcare record Alice's? I actually had a concentration in political science perfect so that works really well when you're working with physicians. So there's a lot of politics that you have to deal with it. Oh, yeah. There's I don't know. They have a penchant for having a bit of an ego. So with that they think they're God. Like they the rabbi. Yeah. Pretty much. Okay. Very good. Liz, when you ring in, we're gonna hear this. She ran list, whoever has more points after two games we'll go onto our final round. This is a guessing game called actually it is brain, surgery in this game will pretend you're highly skilled brain surgeons answering brain related multiple choice questions. Okay. Here we go. You're a brain surgeon who charges by the pound, the heavier, the brain, the more you earn. So should you limit your practice to a cow's, be orcas, or see YouTube celebrities? Sheera orcas. That's right. Yes. Orca or killer whales brain is about twelve and a half pounds. Human brains are three pounds YouTube celebrities, unknown. Oops, you forgot to pay the electric Bill, which of these devices requires the same amount of power as the human brain to function, a light bulb, the single serving smoothie maker, as seen on TV or see none, because the human brain is essentially, powerless, sheera. Smoothie maker. I'm sorry. That is incorrect. Liz, can you steal? Kind of existential. I would go with the light bulb though a light bulb is correct. That's right. Is that why the animation there's a light bulb over your head? When you have a good idea, it's exactly. The brain actually uses twenty one. So we're talking about very small not very important light. You lost your ruler and you need to measure something. So naturally, you take all the capillaries in a human brain and stretch them out and to end, what's the maximum distance, you could measure the distance between a soldier and their dog reuniting at the airport when the soldiers finally returned from war. I know let's just think about that be the distance from home plate to first base or see the distance from New York to Cleveland sheera New York to Cleveland. Yeah, that's right. There are four hundred miles of capillaries in your brain capillaries and get all the way to Cleveland. This is your last clue brain, surgery business has been slow. Sorry, you're brain surgeon, so you're opening a Weight Watchers next door to supplement your income. Why might you feel conflicted about this a because the brain is about six percent fat be because the brain is about sixty percent fat or see because when you lose weight, your brain stops, working all you can do is take pictures of yourself in bathing, suits, Shiro, a, I'm sorry. That's not right. Liz, do you know the answer? This is really tough going to go with be sixty percent fat. That's right. The brain is sixty percent. Fat. Okay. Guess what a great game. And right now we have time. Our next game is called the sound of leadership, which to me is a confident voice ordering nachos for the table. Play a clip of an actor portraying a past or present world leader, each clue is worth two points. One for denting the leader and one for the actor and your opponent can steal any points. You miss so you are both in the lead right now. It's a tie so ever wins. This game is obviously going to the final round. Whoever loses his game. You have to play IRA glass in the annual public radio musical. Oh my gosh. This year. It's Terry gross. La hoya. In previous years, we've had the rocky horror pledge drive show and Hamel tote bag. So. Here we go. This clip is from a two thousand nine film forgiveness to forgiveness liberates sold. It removes. That is why it just such a powerful weapon. Liz Morgan Freeman, playing a man that a lot of people confuse him for Nelson Mandela. That is correct. Yes. That was a step down from Oregon Freeman because he's used to playing God. All right. This clip is remained nineteen sixty three motion picture us that Roman genius destruction down, pyramids wipe out cities. Liz. Try Elizabeth Taylor. As cleopatra. I think you tried perfectly. That is correct. This clip is from a two thousand and fifteen musical. These ideals. We shouldn't settle. Sheera? This is from Hamilton, that's a great piece of J, which is not what the question was. But I'm blind no divide digs, and he is wait. Give me a second. The second act, the beginning. Love this. No. He's thomas. Jefferson that is correct. This is your last clue. This film is from two thousand and six let them eat cake. That's such nonsense. I would never say that. Liz marie-antoinette is the character, the actress is Kirsten Dunst, that is cool. Okay, guys are amazing. And after two games Liz is going to our final round. Coming up. We'll find out who will face off against Liz in our final round and talk to Brooklyn nine nine. Terry crews.

This is another NPR's, our of puzzles. We're games end trivia, I'm Jonathan Coulton. Now, here's your host, fear Eisenberg. Welcome our special guest. He's stars on the sitcom Brooklyn nine nine and hosts America's got talent the champions, both on NBC. Please welcome Terry crews. I just have to describe Terry for our listeners you came out here. You did a peck dance. With the war. Now Terry back after high school, you get to scholarships at the same time you get a art scholarship visual art scholarship and a football scholarship scholarships. But one was to interlock, an arts academy. What yes, mazing place? It was a six week program. It was like a pre-college thing, then I had a really small scholarship to western Michigan university. And then I walked on to the football team in order to get a full ride football scholarship. Well, so it was a I had to go through the Rudy thing. It was a big old Rudy, basically. So then you're drafted to the NFL in nineteen ninety one and to make extra money. You actually start doing portrait's of your fellow teammates, and of people playing football exactly you gotta say the very egotistical, so I needed to make some money to paint you over the city, and they loved it, and they paid me. Well, but this the thing I got married very early. I was married. In college, we had two kids, very early. I got cut a lot. I'm listed as having three years NFL, but it took seven years to do. Right up. Oh career was not glamorous at all. It was like being Rhody, a bad that was never going anywhere. So we lived out of suitcases when I will get cut, I was just humbled myself. I went back in the locker room and ask those guys. Hey man, do you, would you like a painting? This is something that I do, when I was showing my portfolio and they really liked it. And it got us through perseverance wins out. Yeah. You even as you sit here is someone so successful, you seem very humble and very authentic. But I imagine like when slice alone calls you to be in the expandable 's, the first one, you must have felt like a big deal. Now it's weird because I'll have more experiences than people are allowed to be honest. I mean I feel like I've lived seventeen lives. And when sly called, I remember it was a big, big deal because I was literally, the fourth choice on V, but that's fourth in the world. Yeah. Right now, it is another thing too. You gotta understand before I started in acting I was doing security on the movie sets. Okay. And I remember talking to my wife and I said, you know what here we are in LA 'cause this is we were broke. And when you broke we decided, you know, at least if you're broke be broke by what you wanna do like near it. So you broke anywhere. So I worked security, but there was a day, click to me. I'm twelve hours on set the whole thing. And I'm going this is it. I'm a part of a Hollywood production. I was like the bathrooms of this way, sir. But the thing is I remember telling my wife, she'll tell you, this is a wonderful job, because I get to be a wound and I'm gonna tell you right now. This is so strange, but I was happy. And listen, if it would ended there, I still would have been happy. I just feel that way about everything I'm doing. Somebody will like coma. You know on that. But let me tell you when you are happy. You don't stay where you are. Right. It's impossible, I people like meant that guy. Man. I want him on my job. I want him on my show. I was the most intimates guard. Sleeves rolled up. He'll nine. Posed. The bathrooms are that. Sudden oh, you can't stay got to put you up. You know what I mean? And a friend of mine saw me gave me a shot. I dish I ever did up. I was still security is I'm going home. And I was like, bait took about acting. What do you think she was like, we ain't got nothing? Now. Well. I went the first thing I ever addition for in my life. I got. Time magazine said, you were the first man who made muscle funny, people had decided in the comedy world it was a foregone conclusion. If you get in shape, you will never be buddy again. I just decided on. I'm just gonna do me. I never wanted to be the bad as they would. I got to take karate classes. Oh, I did a movie Malibu's most wanted. I remember I had a one big line in a movie, and I ask that they wait a minute, and it just kept growing Damian wayans, who was on that movie recommended me to his uncle's for white shit, and let me say everything that turned comedy was my way. Most favorite thing. I love about this as I remember standing around and making my mother laugh and my mother passed away about four years ago. But I remember it just reminded me of being at home and making her laugh stand. You're doing all this stuff. We will watch Carol Burnett. And we were reenact the skits and do all this stuff. And she was like this is good. You know, and that's all I wanted to do. I remember never being more satisfied that entertaining and making people feel happy. And now I love the fact that this is my career. I can keep the muscle and I can keep it. And on top of that, you know, your use your celebrity in your voice to speak out on things. You know, recently, you said mentioned, hold one another accountable, when speaking about Kevin Hart and all the publicity and controversy around that. I mean, I gotta say, I feel like that takes a huge amount of courage to put yourself out there like that got to this right now because the world is changing, I got tell you how fast it's changing right before this. I had a podcast today. He was just accused of sexual harassment with receipts. The question is should I do the podcast anyway of already made a commitment? The whole thing can't so. Why I'm gonna tell you why. When you look at the hierarchy the people who are below are not believed. But people are not believed women are not believed. Poor people are not believed. Immigrants are not believed. And we gotta stop this deal is always said, men need to hold other men accountable. That's it. It will sort itself out, and let me tell you around Tora innocent, then we can do view. What I'm saying. But as of right now, I'm standing on the side of the women. I'm standing on the side of the people who want to have the voice heard, and I'm with you, this narrative has got the change, and I'm trying to tell you, it is changing, it will never ever be the same because there are other guys just like me in this room supportive of women, and supportive of what this is.

Giver this year with manscaping. Hey you are now locked. In to the flock dodges. Hotcakes clock dodgers podcast. I'm your host neal malignant and the fantasy football playoffs are on fire. I'm joined by adam aka the other f- f guy. What up adam your. We're also joined by mr teuku. Second a weeks in a row. Josh cocker. What am i as bright to twitter. Oh we're gonna make it three like that. No more ice storms all behind us now tall behind us speaking of weather. I was telling you just a second ago. Man fifty seven degrees. You don't florida. The a c is not turning on is is madness. madness had to get my kids sweaters for school. It's getting crazy man with do you even own sweaters that really now really. You might have one lane around next year. You're like it gets cold again for a couple of days or they to our florida kids. Just like layer t-shirts basically. Yeah and now you'll see people walking around the have sweaters on but shorts and flip flops. They understand these things they have to wear sweaters as we do that's how we roll but Yeah so it's a little chilly chilly out here. I sit around the house with the window open and joy enjoy. It had to tell the kids. it's too cold to go to the pool today. guys too cold. That is just not too cold chilly out. There will sound like so real having a few bad as you should. You should not knock it. Leaves the pool everyday. Yeah first covid weather getting out of hand twenty twenty getting. It's getting rough in florida but otherwise guys. Let's feed him about this. So it's not florida whether anymore be shut out to all the clock dodgers listening. You guys are what makes this show ron. I did check again for locations of of where the listeners are coming from. we're getting lots of love from. I didn't realize that. I don't know why i never noticed it. But we allots a love from from the canadians up. Top man so big. Shout out to the canadians out there. You guys knowing the listen no but anytime that like somebody's really invested in the nfl native. Don't live in the united states. I'm always impressed. Honestly i mean not to get sidetracked by people who are fans of anime outside the. Us are super impressive to me because they're always like watching pay per views at like six in the morning and crazy and all this stuff. So yeah. I mean shallow to anybody who isn't on. I guess canada's on the same time schedule so you guys. I mean as much as i love you passed. The the struggle is not nearly as is intense for you as it is for our brothers overseas. But yeah yeah. And i was checking on my k. Is this like one dedicated listener in canada housing not across different areas of this other guy or specter expect canada as didn't respect enough already journal. Richards is canadian. That's true that is true. That's a retread. There might be might be him he might be. You might actually just be moving around to different places in canada and listening to different areas You know the guy gets around out there. I hear i'm just clued. He does but yeah. He is from canada's maybe. He's our connect to the canadian people. He's he's voiced their microphone out there Maybe that's the recent splurge the recent increase that we've seen uptick was jordan so off to send them a check or something the same ones. We never sent any of ourselves. So we'll do that right away. Otherwise guys let's get into victory laps victory laps I'll let you guys start. I've been you know. Victory last. Been kind of weird we last couple of weeks so Adam start then. Josh and i will ask late. Been weird for you. You know saying certain names. And then i don't know if it's curse in think you're jinxing players. I don't know man. I don't know employed. I'm not that kind of guy antonio gibson his meal did you do this. I'll do this. And i thought it was the turf. The now he's got. Neil kidding me. Yeah i mean i you know. I don't like to start off victory laps with just like the player that destroyed the most. If there was ever a week to go out early this week guys this is not the week is just a it was too too painful but I mean there's always victory laps to take. I understand neal's Pause because it was a particularly good fantasy week for for a certain group of players that play out of a certain area We'll just leave it at that. But outside of that i mean this is a tough week for victory laps for It was it was kind of like a mediocre fantasy week but the biggest one. I mean i just i can't i can't stop taking cole beasley victory laps. I mean i feel like i was one of the only people ever who was talking about him going into this year Mentioned in the podcast before my most own. Best ball pig. He was available in like the last round almost any fantasy draft. You're in and finish this week. Is the wider super. Three coming into this week was wide. Receiver twenty five on this season so after tonight's game between baltimore in dallas because we're recording at during that game. I mean he's right now going to be a top twenty. P p r wide receiver the season. I just think that nobody saw coming coming into the year. And i personally didn't even see it coming But i definitely thought that he was being drafted far too low owen. I think that's one of the best things you can do. And fantasies kind of those opportunities for guys just greatly exceed their adp. So that was that was basically like the the one that i'll harp on because once again turned out to be fantastic but I'll give a shout out. The logan thomas is well. I mean he finally had a breakout week and He's somebody who coming into this year was early high on and hopefully they now see the talented. They have in him and and start to utilize him as a target option more But but yeah. It was great This past week. Yeah for sure. The beasley thing is cool too because it kind of is like it's surprising that the buffalo bills offense from a passing game perspective like when they added stuff on digs people. Were like you know. How many guys can they support. They john brown and you know they've been able to you know continue to rotate these guys or sometimes multiple guys are having big weeks like so typically cabinets that offense in general from the passing game perspective has been impressive That's a big part of why you know cole has been will doing so well Josh diva nia any any at least one player. you wanna give a nod to hear darren. Waller dern waller had a humongous week. And i would just like to say that hundred target seasons do not just happen for tight ends. It's not because of a lack of other options because that players get and darren waller had a fantastic season last season and people dismissed it because they thought that that team just didn't have any other options and he was getting targets by default and looks like he's actually good. Yeah yeah since you brought them up you know. Let my toes into the water here guys. I don't know if there's a curse taking place or not but i have to say. Derek carr who is the best quarterback last week and darren waller had like two hundred yards two touchdowns clearly. Nobody can stop the dude at any point in the game they married. What pass it was made no matter who was on him. It was ridiculous and so hopefully they can continue this. This is that win. I don't know exactly how that happened. How that took place at the game. It felt like it was just handed to them. I don't know what really was happening in the background. There but Yeah it was pretty nuts so you know. Hopefully they can stay consistent. Hopefully derek carr endow waller can do some sort of Not you know not replicated but you get as close as they can do it again next week next week. They're playing the colts. It's a big game. Both teams are trying to the playoffs. It's gonna be a wanna watch but yeah man shots every want we we we we were talking about darren. Waller win was a year ago or two years ago. We're talking about two years. I was two years okay. So like there's got to be people listening right now. Who two years ago. Maybe rolled the dice on him and dynasty. 'cause they heard us talking about maybe they said. Hey neal he's raider fan. He's probably not really on anything here. But i'll just take a shot on the guys basically free in my league and now yet. Can you imagine how you feel last week. They played the guy. They crushed so it feels good like when i think back about guys that we do. You know that's what these victory lobster fun to me. Because when i think back to the guys that we call it a long time ago And they play out now. Whether you're in dynasty whether you're just remain faithful and redrafting these guys year whatever it is i mean it feels good to see those guys playing well and you know continue. Do good things so i'm excited about obviously as a raider fan but fantasy fans should be just as excited and there's no reason for waller slowdown anyone. Derek carr has gained while you know usually still has a good game so all right so hopefully. I come out unscathed hopefully next week. There's no injuries everybody's good at laugh of cole. Beasley gets hurt since you laughed at me. I don laugh antonio gibson killed to the situation. Yeah and speaking of you know tony gibson. I mean let's. Let's injuries really quick with antonio gibson are we like i mean. You're pretty invested heavily. I don't know how much josh says. But i mean you really concerned about this adam why you think this is gonna be like a playoff killer and you should not miss time for this injury. That being said i've never had it so players typically. Don't miss time for this injury. So my hope is you know. He sat out the entirety of that game This is not the best of signs. But you know and they won. They beat the undefeated steelers. Which egos have heard me on the podcast before but there is something in my opinion to you. Know when teams have big wins or win games just in general early in the year. I find that offense is try and go back to whatever was successful in those games so it is a little unnerving the they had that much success with gibson out but the thing that wasn't successful at all which jd mckissic in the running game kice completely enact in that dynamic great backfield is pass catcher. Great and pass pro. But he can't run between the tackles. He's not going to be a running back and the traditional sense for that team so if gibson comes back expect touches to go right back to where they were which makes them pretty much. Like must star player. If he's out. I mean mckissic flex worthy just based on the volume. You'd get in the passing game. So i don't mind still flexing him You know obviously if if gibson's out he becomes kind of guy that you're looking to get in your lineup. Or you know he becomes a little bit better than flex worthy. Yeah yeah for sure. So yeah hopefully. Hopefully it was just this past week. And and whoever had them in their playoff team survived or you know. They're wild wildcard rounds. Whatever you guys were participating in hopefully we'll survive it you know and and asked him next week year. Play for you. But i know man is going to be team that lost just because of that. You know it sucks but this is the way the game works. mass ways. Plays that as we play it so Hopefully he's back at definitely a big injury for a lot of teams though clyde edwards helaire I gotta say. I got a mention josh. Got his hand on the injury. Report here and E- you know he came is very limited information to go off here. He says clyde was sick. The i mean listeners. Like is this you know. In fact your information is is you know okay is is to allow this atom mean. This is kind of like half information here. Yeah he had a stomach virus right so We all assume he's going to be back this upcoming week. You know doesn't seem like the issue of like there's a pandemic happening and illness could non a myriad of things if was covert i would have said counter use. Got a normal set. Yeah he said yeah. I mean just to touch on c. Age for a minute here. It has been really interesting to see a in the the thing with the chiefs offenses. They basically can't fail so if they decide they don't wanna use the age they don't have to so for me. As far as he goes moving forward. I really relegated him to kind of like a running back to flex sorta option just because how much they use bell and how much. They don't ever have to rely on him. I mean he's still going to have huge game so it's tough to bench him But definitely coming off this illness and everything else that goes into it With how they've utilized him since the signing of bel i guess i I'm not looking to bench him. But if i have a really good options. He's probably going to benched. If that makes sense may make sense. It makes sense makes sense. It's manson's weird ones. I don't know joshua benjamin. Us situation where you would now. Now i think at bell's not really taking his much of the work as i thought that he would take. It was the last time i checked. It was more like a third of the words. He's taken a ton of the work. The only difference really the only thing that's kept alive it's touchdowns i mean if if we're just looking over the past handful weeks You're looking at twelve touches sixteen touches which is great but then eight touches nine touches twelve touches and those are the games sense. Bell has been active. So it's a stark contrast to prior to that thirty touches Thirteen touches in a game where he had eight targets thousand nine touches twenty-five touches a sixteen touches and twenty seven touches It's just it's dramatic In from a volume perspective at least all right. Yeah yeah oh man. I don't think they'll set him. I hope not you know it's not lingers and like you said i mean they're good with them without him there you go into. The playoffs doesn't matter So i'm sure it isn't that lingers we'll wait and see kind of thing but i hope it is you know it comes and goes but as two rookies in a row that we're talking about it running back that are you know. Been depending on their kind of kind of hurting us now. After we've bragged about the mole year Boyd and parker gonna fight last week. I everything i've read that they're not gonna get suspended the fines. I don't even know how that current as a fight. I'm sorry to interrupt but did you see it. Like the acclaimed punches were thrown. I'm like if those are punches. You barely barely. It was It was the most mild fight that i feel like i've seen people get attracted for. Yeah wasn't that big of a deal. We've seen worse. I would say the nfl so yeah they should both be fine though So we have to worry about that. bengals Bringing allen had a chest injury has anyone seen an update on. That doesn't care nothing. Nothing recent i assume. We'll get updates tomorrow on him most of the time. That's when you get updates on on these sorts of injuries but yeah. I mean as far as care. It's tough to. I mean they definitely have had options in that assing game though that have stayed relevant even with the loss of borough so you know if he got he ends or via boyd. Y- you care at least to some extent because that's probably honest. I don third string quarterback is but i'm sure to thought good yea only gets worse more than likely So keep an eye on that one. Darrell henderson suffered a knee injury. I also not seen update on that he did leave the game So you know the injury runningback if it's bad enough probably not gonna play but that's another wait and see. That was no clear word on that one. james conner with his cova diagnosis. He is expected to return. So that's a good thing for the playoffs. Maybe if you had antonio gibson or ca they do get benched for some reason because their injuries our health in maybe connor come back and help you out a little bit. We talked about it before the show guys bryant during this game is being played or now. Cities quit in the season due to his pre-game positive. Covid test he was not happy about it. He was tweeting on twitter about it. Not not happy. Obviously very understandable kind of sucks that he got an opportunity to come back to the game. He's played a few games and now he's got like probably never play again this year and possibly never again. His career discuss sucks. That plays out. I can have a worse person at this point If i don't know anyone who's starting does brian. Their leagues or was in a position. Care how this affects the team in any way. But it's just sucks overall for news you know Did you want to be guys wasting waivers or anything on. Does this year. Just because i guess i wanted to happen i mean i kinda feel his frustration a little bit. I'm sure i'm sure he's just kind of angry. He feels like he still has something to give. And not. this is gonna be in his way. Yeah it sucks The last one we have here is Jalen hurts he had replaced wentz. But we do actually have a question later in the show will wait for that for the jalen hurts conversation but it's just something to think about for people who are set in lineups again prepared and trying to make adjustments for this week upcoming but we'll get to it we'll get more to jalen harris later Any their injuries. That i've missed guys. They does it. Lawrence circle back to clyde and laid beyond the is bothering you a little bit worse than what i said. But it's close to two thirds like I i feel like i expected lady on to come in and fully take half of the work and and that that's not happening. I mean in week. Eleven clyde was. Clyde was an rb one week twelve was addy had four point nine points. Yeah i mean. It's it just touchdowns. Ben if you just look at points is touchdowns i just ran through the touches it. The thing is he was getting literally one of the highest workloads in the league. I think only james robinson was getting more touches than him the first half of the year so from that. It's a dramatic drop oil. Most running backs. I mean you know in the last two weeks if you're just focusing on recently in sixteen and twelve touches it's not. It's not terrible but it's definitely not a guy who drafted at the end of the first beginning of the second round. So i i don't know i think context is everything but But to me it seems like a pretty drop. it's such it's a job it's just. It's about two thirds one third from. Yeah i get what you're saying from like the running back in that offense corp currently. Yeah all right one more guy that we actually didn't have here on the list josh jacobs. He's probably still going to be out next week. That's my assumption. So they brought in spencer ware for a tryout. They may have spencer ware in booker out there guys to a former rivals division rivals in their league and their division. Now may be playing for them. This week we'll see But yeah so. Josh may not play this week so answer. that's important again playoffs gaz. Even you know ryan this whole way. This is what happens man. This is why you have to ask them depth because these kind of things happen so we'll see how that plays out again. That's when i would just keep an eye on because it could change but as of right now does on pilot of all right. let's go over to trust issues. Gentlemen the first one we have here. Jonathan taylor is finally healthy. Any top twelve runningback. Trust or trust issues adam. I still trust issues. I mean down the stretch. You expect rookies to know be acclimated. They're all fences and further touches to really star to increase foot. As we've gone going through here. I mean we've got rookies. Banged up rookie. Seeing less touches now. Jonathan taylor is kind of been a more unique case if you will Because the his kind of been struggling throughout and now hours finally quote unquote getting healthier. Getting right but I'm still a little trepidation Just with their overall usage. I mean the game hines has been getting a ton of work there. I don't really expect that to go away and overall mean that the team's winning games and they're scoring points but it just. It's not an offense that i'm really excited to get super invested in so obviously if you draft jonathan taylor. You probably don't have a lot of better options. He's not really guide. That i think it's easy to benched by any stretch of the imagination but My expectations are capped. The if you look at say we ten through thirteen. Just recently jonah. Say kinda recent they did have a bye week but npr Jonathan taylor sixteen was funny. Isn't he finds a seven so if you have to choose one of the other I would go. Hi ends at this point. Still but i understand if you have a waiting on jonathan taylor this whole time to be excited to be happy that you know. They're starting to see some positivity but know speaking of workload with clyde edwards helaire mean. That's john taylor. Trauma to you know like this high isn't going anywhere. He's been good at what he's been doing. So yeah i mean it's definitely concern so out have trust issues too. I just don't you know. I'm not gonna get all excited when this just starting to turn the page here. I got to see more of it. But i know that if you have him like you said he drafted him earlier of your dynasty and you kinda got excited about it. You know you're happier your and there's you know you should be positive about it. It's it's a it's a positive terminally so But i still have trust issues overall as a running back but definitely you know. Positive signs are starting to come around on the taylor Josh trust or trust issues. I trust it. I trusted for. Jonathan taylor adjusted it because it just looks to me like nothing. Nothing huge james. On and things. He only had sixteen opportunities last week. If i'm if i'm correct in that and you always had that before so it wasn't like he got what he didn't get him a massive increase in his workload he just was more efficient with it and and this comes after taking a week off. I think the there's a lot of situations where we don't really know what a player is dealing with through the season. And i think that i think jonathan taylor might be getting his legs under him. All right there you go next guy. David montgomery is on the trust. Issue is he has found his way back onto the podcasts. After not you know being very relevant recently before now so data montgomery has been over twenty fantasy points for two weeks in a row trust or trust issues at. He'll add a third week in a row. Adam i actually trust it It you know. We talked a little bit. Coming into the yearbook raiders in their schedule. But i didn't really talk much about the bears in their schedule and the bear schedule basically was really easy to you. Pretty hard to really easy and The it's close out the year with the houston minnesota jacksonville And i and week seventeen have green bag which you know is basically loss already on the calendar over the next three games are all winnable for sure So i think going up against houston this week. It seems like it'll be another good situation other pob. Positive game script I definitely don't love it by any stretch of the imagination. David montgomery is not getting some crazy. Touch share Quarter o- patterson often will look like the more explosive player out of that backfield so montgomery still doesn't have that going for him but at the end of the day. I think that they're probably going to win that game against houston or the very least it's going to be a high scoring game So i think the potential scoring is there and he's still getting work in the passing game. Which i think ultimately gives them a high enough floor for me that he's been every week starter. And then he has pretty good touchdown potential this week. Yeah i definitely agree with you. I trusted as well. you know. obviously he's he's playing well since he came back and the texans are not a good. You know rushdie so like you said. This game should be competitive. He should have the opportunity to run the ball. And if so i mean hey. He's got the hot hand right now. He's feeling good. This texan seem is vulnerable to run so yeah trust it. Why not i. I definitely have no issue with montgomery. You know doing it again this week. So trust for me. Josh trouser trust issues david. Montgomery and twenty Fancy points i have trust issues. I have to think that that david montgomery is is just benefiting from circumstance and i. You know adams right about the schedule getting a lot easier but this guy has just. He's he's had decent volume all year and his underperformed it all year until these last two games. Yeah but it's so ironic. Because you'd literally just said the exact same thing about jonathan taylor. But you liked jonathan taylor. And it's the exact same situation had volume all year was inefficient miss. Multiple weeks missed one week and john. Taylor's case comes back has a performance where he sees more volume is extremely efficient. The herald i insist. I'll i jonathan taylor. Because he has the athletic profile expecting to to be able to dub and because david montgomery is slow. I expect him to be bad. I mean overall from what. I've seen from david. Montgomery i do not have high expectations of him from a talent perspective. I just know how the bears used their running backs. And i know works on that team And they've given him a ton of work all year and the biggest thing for me is just he could. He gets a ton of targets. You know almost every game. He's seeing multiple targets some games upwards of five to seven targets so for me that just that heightened says potential so greatly begin though with the player like jonathan taylor that we were just talking about. The question was top twelve going forward. This is twenty points or more. They're they're actually pretty similar. It makes me almost rethink jonathan taylor now having some perspective on dividend. 'cause it's like the expectation for those players was different complainer. The season i had higher expectations for jonathan taylor. So i'm just him still based on those high expectations. I have lower expectations for david. Montgomery in reality right now. They're very much the same player wild while turn of events here gentlemen out of college out said hey. This is similar. Jonathan terry a.d. Actually that's a good point. It is down to taylor. Maybe i should change my answer than taylor. Yeah for me. It's more about the matchup. An he has a hot hand right now so the team is feeling good about feeding them. So yeah i mean i just feel good matchup wise if this was somebody else that they were playing tough. You know it's up defense. I would have given that kind of credit but So adam are you. Are you flipping in your answer on taylor for the first question. Yeah i i think in all situations as the like you're harping on. It's very matchup. Is i think both dies like low end. Rb twos right now who most people are going to be starting because let's face it. There's not a ton of wide receivers that you are. I'm sorry don a running back. See feel super confident about week in week out. So i think these are guys that most people starting But as far as like what to expect from them fantasy production wise. I think there yet guys who are probably going to be at best low end running back ones and probably going to have high floors because they both are going to be active in the receiving game. Gotcha article all right. The next one hundred new head coach darryl bevill matt stafford one per game rest of season. Trust or trust issues josh. I trust i trust because we've seen it from stafford before and and now we've got their level in they're letting stafford throw at deep. You know and if kenny golladay comes back. I think it's like a done deal matt stafford. Qb one like. I trust very much interest and adam. Are you in the same boat with the josh here. Yeah i mean is a qb one on the season as it's been So yeah. I mean he's the cutie twelve right now but i think things get better with darrow bubble. I think did the way in which he wants to run an offense caters along. More to what. Matthew stafford is good at Like josh said the more they pushed the ball downfield better. They're going to be a marvin jones and kenny golladay. When they're healthy are both grade. Downfield receivers possession receivers. They can move the ball in the passing game And i think ultimately they need desperately approaching james so this could be really positive Do think it's going to be like sky's the limit for him or anything. No but i think if he's been a quarterback that you've been you know starting the year with getting by. I think that your fantasy team is gonna look a lot better going into the playoffs. You could be very confident in him. Producing at least you know a high floor. Production weaken we out dasha. Yes it'll be trust across the board for all three then May guess just gotta get better mattress during the war. Things have to go up only where they can go so yeah he's already been in a decent this season and you know no reason for him to decline in any of our is so yeah definitely we all agree there all trusted at one next one cam. Akers is the lead running back in. La trust were trust issues. Adam oh man this is hard. I'm gonna say trust issues still. But it's they're light. They're very light trust issues like i think he at this point has the lead in that. Backfield I think brown has basically been relegated to goal line work and even that we're not really seeing so it's religious. A question of is darrell henderson healthy. If darrow hunters assad healthy or he's banged up acres is going to be a slam. But if you know montgomery czar if henderson comes back. And he's fully healthy and active. They're gonna utilize him. So i don't see any world where a rely on one running back with the amount of talent they have in that backfield so for me. It was just kind of situational. The gave you know acres. This huge uptick in usage. And i think we just see that. Come right back down to what he'd been previously. Which is you know like in the ten touches range. You might see closer to ten to fifteen touches but as far as twenty plus. That's not gonna happen unless he's the only one in that backfield so you don't think it's like a you know team is starting to change the guard and go to acres kinda make him the guy you think. It's just a matter of injuries in hot hand in electronic stuff situational on its own. I mean we've seen it for one week now. A minnesota guy who last week had as many touches as like the past three weeks combined. So you can't just assume that that usage is automatically going to stay especially when darrell henderson was heard you'd situational factors like that going into it and henderson throughout the year. Even though they haven't had like a course back situation has been the running back that's gotten the most touches one. How the backfield. So i do expect acres to continue to chip away at that but i by no stretch thing could he's gonna steal the vast majority of the touches in the backfield. Yeah yeah. I have trust issues within myself like you said just the way. They're using these running backs and you know. Obviously if they're hunters hurt that changes things in perspective but just overall. I haven't liked acres opportunity in this backfield of having used him. I know that the offensive line and stuff is a struggle there too so there's like things that he's the all these running backs are trying to work through. Basically that are you know putting behind a show. The gate but I i had high hopes for acres into the year and it hasn't really played out the way i'd hoped But yeah. I don't think he's going to be the lead back. Team wants to lead back necessarily per se a lead back. But yeah i i. I have trusted for sure Josh do you trust it or do you trust issues with a lot. More of durell henderson's her. The that really helps a lot. But cam akers has been gaining on him for the last few weeks you know. Last week anderson got her but the touches were twenty to six and in week twelve. It was eleven to sit to sit eleven to nine. Sorry with henderson in the lead and the week before that it was eleven to six eleven. Six eleven nine and then cam has the big game last week. I feel like. I feel like he's up and coming so it definitely helps if henderson mrs time but i think i think cam akers is come on. Now you're right. One thing that i do want say though i don't want anyone in this backfield. They do not throw to the running backs at all. it's crazy. how little they running backs in the passing game and for me. That's just too big of a factor. You just become far too reliant on touchdowns unless you had somebody who who's just a total workhorse. Getting twenty carries every week. I just. I cannot feel comfortable. Starting anybody here i mean obviously you can be put in situations and fantasy where you just start a guy who's going to be getting touches but i'm not thrilled starting anybody in this backfield and it's funny because acres henderson are both guys who can't catch the while the backfield and do great things but it soon. It's yeah it's it's totally coaching scheme. I really as much as i love. Sean mcvay and honestly is proud of what he's been able to get out of. Jared goff even the season there are some things about how they their offense just confused as to how to me. I mean do situational run calling their lack of use of running backs in the passing game. They just interesting things that i don't know for me personally. I don't necessarily agree with but they've been successful so you know it's hard to knock it. Basically what you're saying is jon. Gruden better playcaller correct. Yeah sure i mean honestly one of the best play calling base you can do is hey. That player is better than anybody else on the field. Let's throw him the ball. Fifteen done and i can't knock that honestly. I think that was one of the smartest thanks. John gruden's ever as a coach. So you know. Look for more of that this week. If josh jacobs is out 'cause As far as situational play calling goes. That's the best situation will play call. You can make. Hey we have a guy that they can't stop it all. Let's just keep giving him the ball. Good meal it's great. It sounds sounds he works out. I i'd love to see the rams do it. More with cooper kupp so yeah i i don't like either like what he doesn't receivers like robert. Woods innkeeper capper both starving to death in terms of air yards. And i just. I don't understand it like woods. Still managed to be the wide receiver thirteen points per game on the season. But it it. It's it must all be yards after the catch man. Just stand white either. One of these guys can get in air yards. Mcveigh was a darlan. Everyone loved them. Everyone's ragging on heart right now. Man we'll see even ragging on them 'cause to me like he's being successful. I do not understand how it successful struggle like i. I do not agree with the play calling. But they've got a great defense there too and i think that that's a big part of it. I mean we're talking about one side of the ball here mostly for fantasy so You know it's easy to be critical the offense but But their defense defenses but holding their end of the bargain and they weren't close games so you know they're they're doing something right but But yeah. I'm kinda with josh there. There's a lot of times where i'm watching their offense kind of scratching my head I don't necessarily have the same complaints about the air yards stuff because i don't think that actually matters. You have believed the ac with which they do. I think the forty niners are proving that as well But yeah whether the offense. I was going to compare them to. But but you know robert woods is not a deebo. No you're completely right in that regard. Yeah i mean deebo. Samuel is a very unique skill. set that very much so caters to throwing the ball. Behind the line of scrimmage for all intensive purposes. I mean. I just yeah. It's a very unique skill set. But you're right in. I mean san francisco. La what they are is. They're two of the most forward thinking franchises in the nfl that entire division. In my opinion the fourteenth in that division are formed the ten best teams in the nfl. And it's sad you know all four can't make the playoffs because honestly in the nfc looking at the teams. I'd rather have the four teams from that division the playoffs and every other division get one team. 'cause they're that good. I mean the that competitive Remind shamanee's bagged on here. Guys is gary coaches shanahan. And mcveigh are dealing with limited ability. Quarterbacks and and making the best ever yawkey payton on jerry go. Just give me josh. I feel you may not. Everybody can have a derek carr as understandable Neil one thing that i did want to say about that is i think it's hilarious even after his wide receiver. One week on total fantasy points for the year. Jared goff's it's just barely just like a smidgen ahead of derek carr just just the littlest bit to remind you where you stand by the end of the season. Derek carr will surpass jared goff. It's all matters. I mean if they have no running game that is very possible whatever. Make your excuses man. Make your excuses this one. I'm not gonna you're not gonna beat me talking really great about their car now. 'cause i'm not looking for injuries or another bad game so i'm gonna play cool. You're right yeah you're right. Jared goff is great The bears find their way onto this episode. I don't know why we're not really a bear friendly podcasts. you're adam but Co combat is the bears tenant. One industry will option in redraft. I'm let you start with this out because you are a bears. Fan trust tracers. I got trust issues. i really do. I mean they are going to utilize the tight ends there. And i think it's just because that entire offense is basically like who can we. Who can we get the ball to. 'cause nobody's explosive. Nobody's exciting no. Nobody does anything after the catch. So let's just you know. Let's get these young guys involved. I think coke met from dynasty perspective is really interesting but from a redraft from of this year perspective i still see you know his usage being really up in the air. Really one of those things that is gonna come and go very easily and in this is legitimately like the first game. He's had where he seen more than two or more than three targets but more than two catches in a game all season. So let's calm down. I'm not starting him. I have to see it for another week at least before it even consider it and i think even with the decimated tight end position. I think this is just kind of a reach for in a situation. That's been there all year. Who's been jimmy graham throughout the year there but it's never been great. They just they throw in the red zone to their title house. That's what it comes down to so they can catch touchdowns but i don't see the usage stick around with you trust issues on the anything to what you just said. Josh demanding extra. I think he is overtaking jimmy graham but i'm not sure that he's going to be a thank you will always just be a situational. He has a good matchup this week. Type of player. Gotcha all right and there's actually one last one we have here for trust issues. Nick mullins in your super flex in the playoffs. Trust or trust issues. Adam who trust issues in weird talking about it you know. San francisco's extremely. Well coached team. That being said i just. There's so many good options at quarterback still and we've had a lot of injuries but there's still so many quality options even on your waiver wire. There's a lot of quality options. I don't think that this is a situation where you want a week in week out starter. I think nick mullins is a guy who you know situationally fill in a week or two there but if you're coming into your fantasy playoffs and you're relying on nick mullins. You're not feeling good josh. You feeling that man. So i'm going to take a different angle on this. Like because i have some sleep reflects teams were nick mullins and starting and of course. We're nick molins is starting. I do not have other options. That's why nick mullins starting. Yeah you don't feel good. You just like. Here's what i would say if you can get rid of a quarterback going into the playoffs again and improve running back or wide receiver. And just say fuck it. Unplugging in nick mullins so that i can go get. I don't know david montgomery. Maybe not david carry. Bet you do that. You do that. Because nick mullins as much as he's not any kind of household name or brand at all he's a qb to seventy five percent of the time. So let go with nick more. I would like to a callback to an episode earlier in the season. When nick woolens played he had actually beaten out. Russell wilson russell wilson that week and we asked if he can do that again or last week he did so something i thought would never happen. It happened guys. Nigga i just i just want to make an argument for the roster build. Where like you are scraping by at quarterback in a superplex and put the capitol somewhere else. Adam heard him. You heard him and he's going to be playing them so we'll see next week. How josh feels about nick. Mullins teams how they fared Interested to see this So we'll see how it will give back with josh next week on that. Let's move over to do that again. Let's hit this quickly. Baker mayfield and the browns offense supported three. Top twenty receivers. Pr last week. Can they do at least two of those next week josh. Who can you know what. I had a conversation with my buddy jeff today at work as a huge huge browns fan and i want to say that they have the ravens next week. So so that's that is that is unlikely. If i'm right about that matchup but also it's what it's jarvis. Landry jarvis landry rashard higgins and was it donovan. People's it was over. I don't think that's going to keep happening. I think it's a lot more likely that we see like kareem hunt. Nick chubb both have a hundred fifty rushing yards. Gotcha so adam. He doesn't he doesn't think it can be done again. The airplane the ravens monday night. What do you think man. Can it be done again. I know i don't but i do wanna heart back on some. I said last podcast which is main guys. Look how good. The brown's got once that lost odell beckham. It's almost like that. Guy's a cancer any franchise. He's a part of all right. Moving on your hate mail to adam. Everybody send your email. Dali's terrible are any eew. Louis guy baker mayfield. He he cannot last week. And i mean he looked like patrick mahomes for a half was something. We've never seen them before. And i don't know we'll see him again I don't think the ravens of the match up for it by any stretch. So they have an extremely efficient rushing game. I i expect them to be much more balanced in most games Can he do it again next week. Definitely not before the end of the year. Maybe i could see. I can grab another big performance where you know finishes his up insecurity for baker their little love but no one's in the they can t twenty tower receivers next week as fair. How about this guy austin. Ekeler landed himself outside the top twenty at running back in pr. Can he do that again. Yeah don't hate me but yeah yeah. Jan I think that you know that team got just destroyed by the patriots. I mean there's something to be said for bill. Bala chac man when when he goes up against certain rookies he just annihilates them i mean even what he did against cuyler in their first matchup this past year. I mean collar wasn't a rookie. He's looking like you can be an mvp candidate and the patriots completely. Shut him down so it could just be the situation But that being said i. Just i don't know i'm nervous about that offense going down the stretch Alcan's this week. This should be get right week. But even while justin. Herbert was super hot. There they had no rushing game productions so came back had a big week last week. Completely irrelevant but that might have been just game script. That might have been just the situation. I'm not thrilled. I think it's kind of you know. He's one of those guys. Oddly enough uganda falls in very similarly with david montgomery with you know Jonathan taylor in a way. He's somebody who's gonna be used in the passing game because of that. He's going to have a high floor he. Somebody do drafted probably higher than my expectations are going to be for him. oughta those three guys at probably rank him the lowest going into next week but him in montgomery would be pretty neck and neck. I think so. Yeah i mean. I'm not thrilled. But i think he's still go like flex worthy discussing discussing discussing discussing. You are nasty man. Austin ekeler top. Genuine bags got him. It's very possible but Josh is sounds like feels that bill belichick might have beat the confidence out of the chargers. Didn't it wasn't that game. Forty five zero here. It was he. He did if the confidence that he visit at them. I don't think that's going to happen again. How often do. Nfl teams get skunked. That at least know and joshua kelly is heard. I don't know how much time he's gonna miss not getting a lot of work. Anyways it's really capable ause now behind austin ekeler but i don't think he's a very dynamic player. I think ekeler will will get plenty of opportunity. And i think the chargers will score points in games. Can i take back everything i said. So yeah a full disclosure internet connection terrible pro football reference taken a minute to load to he and sixteen targets. last week. he had sixteen dr last week. I mean you know when they play buffalo not last week against new england but last week against new england again nine targets over the last two weeks. He's had twenty five targets. I mean that to me. That's that's stuff to overlook especially from a guy that easily doubled the russia's. That's that's really tough to overlook. So yeah i mean it. It's weird. I feel like a broken record but He very much so falls into that. Jonathan taylor david montgomery or he range of guys. Who i think are probably only gonna see ten to fifteen rushes are gonna usage in the passing game and for that. I still like him running backs broken records week. Fourteen says it's just the you man. They're all the same type of usage guys. Guys who are going to get way. More usage in the receiving game than they are touch out of the backfield and the rushing game. It's just the type of player or each of those guys seem to be all in situations cater a for sure. I have one more of these. Four you will w we have a bunch of questions to get to cole beasley. Adam talked about him earlier. Hit twenty point. Mark actually Point work for the third time this season. He was double digit points for the eighth time. This season kenny. Do it again next week vs steelers adam. One hundred person especially against the steelers man steelers. You're going to be just passed this a big big game for the afc. I mean you know the steelers got the first law so the bills have i guess. Some outstanding chance still getting a by It's like the steelers. Were to lose out or something crazy but But yeah i mean as game script goes. This is a game that i expect to be high scoring and i expect to be a shootout of sorts Though the bills are going to be throwing the football and we've seen from this on offenses. Kobe was going to get a ton of targets. Stefan day's gonna targets and josh allens run all over make plays and because of that. I mean for me. Kobe's like must start guy. Maybe i'm crazy but top twenty. Npr so far this year so crazy like a fox. Josh adam crazy no he he could do it again. I mean the guys like you can basically only men for six or seven targets game. And he's going to have a few with twelve thirteen. Eleven these done. He's had three games with double digit targets. So it's it's happening Beasley his game. Give me folks feel good about me. Feel good animals. Nicest thing that's happening for you met last. See kobe's getting all this love all right. We got a bunch of listener questions today. we'll try to get through these as best as we can We don't always prepare for the listener questions. We like to kind of free. Sally's bab way. So we'll see what we have here in front of us This one is directed to adam his specifically for adam. And it's a question that we visited a lot this year. Thanks justin at jackson. F f underscore. After watching four years are refialy going to see a breakout season. Twenty twenty for corey. Davis adam landed. Yeah i get it. I get it. It's trolling me. it's fine. i still don't think. Torii avis is good. So there's but you know he's he's been good this season Aj brown has not really. So there's that jonnu smith and injured up so there's that derrick. Henry hasn't gotten nearly the that has in the past so i think there's a lot of factors that go into corey. Davis is a guy that we saw multiple seasons year after year. Have high expectations completely fail on those expectations and he finally goes off his fifth year in the league. Just so happens to be the year where there's tons of situational things going on Maybe it's no fans in the stands. Maybe that's what gets him to play well But you know hats off to corey davidson in all honesty for for being somebody who most people have completely road all if you stuck with him. year after year after year. Well you were a loser. Most of that time this year this year it's great And hats off to you. Because i surely didn't see this coming But if he's shown us anything. I mean core davis can have huge performances. I think going into next year. I'll be very very interested to see where a guy like. Corey davis is drafted. I expect him to be overdrafted. Very much so It'll be interesting to see justin. Thank you continuing his question man. It was only right. Look getting sold like that too. I mean really. I was totally wrong on him. I shot him all at the beginning of the year. And you know you were someone like me who just complete his nissim. You missed out. I mean you missed it on production so it's definitely not something. I'm proud of. I really quick before josh time. I have no issue dismissing him now. Stop moustache moustache to dismiss them. Justin good job. Just keep the questions coming. Every week he has a good week. Keep bringing it on. Also josh before you talk. Ag brown. i had to take a little defense here. Had a bad season my van. He's twenty five. he's the wide receiver. Twelve points per game. Yeah so. I'm not gonna tolerate that from adam either. I can't let that slide. I don't get the whole point was injuries. He hasn't been healthy. He's been banged up all years in being johnny. That's my issue is like even if they're on the field these guys who've been struggling with injuries who haven't seen the usage the you'd expect from them so. I think it's given way to corey. Davis being able to explode like this that being so i mean it's not it's not like the be all end all and then they still on the field has had to defend them. I just couldn't let us ly josh's something else to add or was it that i was just thinking about where i would drop corey davis next year and i think i think i'd be drafted him somewhere around wide receiver twenty four adams adam laughing. It did this even have any possibility of duping that raise probably not even gonna i mean. Yeah and he's wide receiver eighteen after he just came off of fantasy performance where he was wide receiver one. What was he last week. Dude no Yeah but that's exactly what i mean. I think people are going to be drafting him. It's like top thirty wide receiver. Next year i will have no part of that all right all right. Thank you just continue continuing this man. This is great Sat out next. One at brad duff. Nine on twitter what who are some players targeting week. Twelve sorry who are some players to target in twelve team leagues if you own. Dj more and antonio gibson both probably might miss due to toe injuries that kind of stuff also name a percentage chance. You think cmc please this weekend. Unless are that really quick. I the percentage on amc May have a strong number on that one plant yet. I think it's okay. Everyone thinks he's playing that. If i had to give a percentage that he was like ninety percent and i think especially with having a week last week he might have gone last week even if they were playing so yeah. I expect him to be back this week. And i don't know about you guys but in my fantasy playoffs. If i don't have christian mccaffrey. That's the one person that i'm like searching in every league this if they made the playoffs. Because i don't want that. I mean if somebody made the playoffs even with christian mccaffrey being almost entire year and now they get them going into the playoffs. That's gonna be that's gonna be a dangerous team in holly fischer all right. So we all think he's gonna play in the reports he said to return to so that's that's good As far as brad's part of the question is asking if there's some players that you guys targeting In case of guys that we've mentioned earlier like antonio gibson or josh jacobs these guys or anybody that you guys are waivers looking for that. You're trying to trade last minute. If you haven't if yourself trades open your leagues any any guys that you guys are trying to replace these guys with our kind of just whatever's on your team with this point which rollo it. I've got three players. I'm i'm putting in bids for everywhere and that's Peyton barber because you know adam was talking about the concerns with jd. Mckissic so peyton barber tied johnson to god a lotta work after frank gore was concussed. Did and i'm not sure. Frank gore is coming back this week and i like chad handsome on on the texans wide receiver. It's funny that you mentioned that because we did talk about in when fuller policy. We mentioned it last week. I asked you guys. I think it might have been a question that came in or something about kiki. Ut and animals like not trust in this guy. and so. I mean he did good. You know hansen did good. So i'm curious is it because cooties not available in that league Josh or is it. Because you just can't answer more. I like hanson more okay. I feel like we kind of know what kuti is like. He you know he could could get hot for two or three games. But i think that's all he is. I don't think he's going to emerge as a leader on that team. I think i think he's a guy who has the very occasional and sporadic big game and at hanson might also be nothing but he he's we don't know we don't know what he is yet. He's played one game this season. He had a hundred eleven air yards. i'm gonna go ahead and see what that we'll see where that leads. I hear you on that. Adam hearing this right now. He's going to air yard guy whiz. You enjoy you kind of dismiss them last week. Would you trust kuti. If you're in a spot where you do lose assay antonio does not play in or whoever's on your team would you trust a not this week in your fancy playoffs or will he not be an option at all and you would either role someone you already have or just dig deeper like joshua hanson. I mean i. I i feel bad because i'm like i. I just missed beauty. Yeah you kind me. I did not how i remember. But maybe maybe josh that being said a call to give the same answer to kuching. I mean as far as a starting him last week or anything. But as dismissing the play. I mean yeah i definitely didn't see you know eight catches for over one hundred yards last week coming for sure not But that being said we had seen kuti have breakout games So for me there. There's a giant target oil that all fence losing wool fuller I thought the majority of that was going to go to brandin cooks but doesn't seem to be the case so I i don't know about this chat. Handsome guy. he's talking about do not has had multiple performances like the over his career. Now so i think that you know from a take a shot on a guy you know last guy and you're starting lineup kind of approach flex option gentle minded but. I definitely not excited to start him. Okay that answers a question. All right So i think that's pretty good brad. peyton barber coochie hanson. These guys that are you know. Decent options But you know again. It just sucks if you're kind of going into the playoffs with this guy. Situation am allows teams are but yes guys how to make the best of which you got man The next one at barrow joffrey hurts. Went drama can eagles really move on from owen. That much money would any t stupid enough to take on the contract. Now that bill. O'brien isn't running team. Adam it's a great question I thought the lube with super interesting especially because they still shot at the playoffs because of that division That being said. I may jalen hurts. Might be their best option to win. Moving forward with nominee been playing. I don't think they really do have a great option to bail on him. So therein kind of a really sticky situation here because the there have jalen hurts and he does well in which case then. They have a quarterback controversy or he does poorly in which case they might have been a quarterback so it seems like a lose lose for philadelphia fans But i don't i don't mind You know there. Two games back in the vision now with four games lost in the year. So they might just think that they're out of contention and after losing four straight. It might very won't be so i don't. I don't really care too much about the decision. I'm excited to see. Jalen hurts play You know the little action that he had wasn't something to get really excited about but we'll see what he doesn't fool start and as far as carson goes man just as there have been anybody in recent memory that's been as hyped up as carson wentz like everybody tells me skyscraper great and it's just man this this season is not good for him. Yeah it's been pretty ugly end you know we've seen it you know years where he's had injuries and this and that and like everyone's like oh man sucks is pretty good quarterback so we keep having these freak incident happened and things like that and even now. I've seen a lot of people who are respected. You know as far as you know breaking down quarterback they feel like is issues. Aren't necessarily all him they could fix and that kind of stuff so i. I don't think you'll gonna try to bail on him right now. I'd like you said you know. They don't even know what they have in and jalen hurt so like they had the socio with how that plays out it may not. He may not even be better than once for them. Who knows i will say. It's fun that you know jalen hurts is getting the start this week and he's playing tastes hill says would be pretty fun to see You know who comes out on top there to be a. It should be a fun game. I mean you figure the very least she'd been fun to watch so We'll see josh. What your thoughts on this really quick before we get the next one they all year long. I've been looking at carson wentz's numbers as i go through the quarterback staff and he's just super weird because he's he's out there just slinging it deep you know. He has a high number of air yards per attempt but his conversion rate is terrible. But the kim in the forty percents forty two percent. And i mean no one else no one else. Is that low. So i don't know. I honestly i think another team might take a shot on him. Because he's had he's had good seasons. You know two or three years ago we had that like carson wentz. Qb one season inc and right now he doesn't have any weapons so it i i'm i'm not so sure that he's bad. It doesn't look great. But i wouldn't be surprised if someone wanted to take shine. Yeah but you think. The eagles would more likely next year. Have him in another team. Correct i want to see him traded. I think i have a deal in advance. I wouldn't mind it at all for sure. But i just think it'll be tough so we'll see plays out man. This is a this is one of those fun offseason potentially dramas that we're going to get to watching. Keep our attention on wall things. Get slow and we'll see how it plays results of quickly or for going into next. You're talking about you know. Jalen hurts as a legitimate. You know challenged battle at camp. We'll see we'll see how it plays out A good question from barrel their next one at justin underscore redwoods shout. Johnston shot the justin. He put will you guys be relieved when the two thousand twenty season is over or you better at Compartmentalize in hacking fucking re just in camera than i am. I have avoided letting the kovic season stress. You out josh. I- will be relieved. I will be relieved. I look hard to off-season rankings plan or game again man. I don't know if you guys remember what kobe life was like before we had. Football's a distraction but No i will not be relieved. I will be probably a lot more anxious because there will be one giant distraction that goes away and all i have to focus on is the craziness that is the world right. Now so yeah. I won't more distractions and seeing as we're not gonna get any new tv you know. Hbo's doing that crazy thing. Where releasing all the movies in the world. But everybody's gonna watch those the first two weeks of january and then what then. What are we going to do with our lives. Super bowl is going to be over. And we're all going to be on lockdown again for god knows how long nothing to do. It's going to be all this is why enemies year round gives me somebody to care about but yeah i am not going to be happy. I am much more anxious about it. Ending and not having a distraction. I can tell you if you didn't talk to adam before the season started. He was iraq. This guy was it was crazy just is getting crazy so yeah i hope for your sake man. There's something else that comes up. Or you know i don't know man something but Yeah no no. We're not happy. We're not related Josh is relieved. Josh so shot. The josh and stop with the big words justin. I'm not a writer. Bad grammar used a little tougher Fumbling over the words here man compartmentalize in san yong Fucked up all right. At austin underscored g underscore h. after a stellar performance against a tough coast defence. A bill o'brien list. Kiki coutinho can emerge as a legitimate weapon for watson. We just kinda spoke about this a little bit earlier Just to make it clear for austin. I do think that kiki is legitimate I don't think it's can be like dynasty play because of other guys were there and players are going to get healthy and they're gonna add player so like from dynasty restrictive Excited about it but like to finish out this year if you need him in playoffs i'm fine with it But adam joshua's be clear adam. I legitimate weapon for watson or not. I mean it's going to be like a end of the bench. Kind of flex sky But i mean ill epidemic with how much they targeted last week. I mean it definitely seems like he's going to be the number one and number two option behind cook so mccain. I assume josh. No 'cause hansen. Deputy get hot for two or three games than if you have him in dynasty and you can get more than a third for you should self. Okay makes sense all right. That doesn't answer the question that persuaded to for dancing protective so all right cool Sorry for answering the question. Kinda sorta earlier austin but Yeah as we feel last one at you. Boy j rich. This is a fun one if you could give each other a christmas gift. Let's say harare budget. What would it be josh. Wanna start with this woman. I've been thinking about this. Okay so so i would get. I would get neil. I think i would get him a babysitter. I think that a gift. For neil the live is can you afford that on under one hundred bucks these days. Or how many hours can you get for that. How much do babysitters charge down. I think he just about go for a day. This afternoon is when we learned. Josh lives in oklahoma. Take do you think you can go out for a hundred bucks to a baby sitter. Probably know how far that'd get you in chicago and it's like four or five hours. Yeah probably not too long once they meet my kids. I'll probably get surcharges or something. Like the back in. I'll get hit with taxes and everything else rally is not to play out well but i mean i appreciate josh. Give me an hour to you. Know appreciate i think adam i think adam would like he. He goes travels and sees friends and stuff like that. Some maybe an airbnb gift card up to the house thinking. Okay very Gift card during cova fascinating gift. Aren't you send me some of your antibodies. Before i go you do that. Can you give me a viol- your antibodies. Hawk dollars sir. Sounds like you're trying to be killed over here. you can. we make sure my babysitter's cova free also before she comes here. No now they get as the rescue run. The words cheap and augie covered them edge. I try to knock us both offer sterile ask bad. I really haven't given this question a lot of thought. Because i didn't have an opportunity to i. I didn't. I didn't even see this question so i'm blanking hard but i just thought of one for neil. I don't it would be able to tell me if i could get this for under a hundred bucks but i'm pretty sure i could In maybe not under a hundred bucks. I'm just going to say it anyway. In autograph darren waller the outtake that for sure. I i guess depending on the card you probably get a front hundred. I give good gifts and for josh. I dunno polio. Maybe wow omit music thing you know for for josh Man i feel like i'd wanna get you something for camp life because you've been doing like a lava camping lately but then again we're heading into the winter months so How much you'll get to enjoy that. I don't know what you're lacking. So i'm just going to throw out something that in my life. I've been really happy to have which might not be as directly applicable for gas. But you know throwing it out there. Because i think it's actually like a general gift idea for people who have small apartments or smaller space And that's that's like a standing or amounted desk. I love mounted. I'm using it right now while. I'm reporting the spa gas. And there's something about just having like this smallest amount of space used possible by desk that i frigging love because most desk like big and bulky and take up the entire space in a room So yeah i think Josh like space right. I know you just downsize a little bit. Susa the sexually. This might work. Yeah that's not a bad idea. I kind of like that. I don't actually know if he downsizing if you mounted at the right size can also be like a standing desk or you. Can you know encourage yourself to stand more because it can work as such. I've seen the that that go up and down like they're adjustable. Yeah have one of those for work there. All right I mean definitely gets you standing more but but yeah they're also pretty expensive You know to go back on our hundred dollar limit. I don't know one of those hundred. But i know a monopoly desk is i might if i might need if i a discount by by both you fuck. Mike's that's by going to stay. I'm pretty. I'm pretty close to a hundred dollar mike. I have that you hate. I might throw in an extra hundred. Okay here's my thing. I actually want you to do that. So that i can prove issues that its reporting over skype but now now we're getting off the podcast. Listen the trial there things in fellas. We'll see we'll see. Maybe i'll get a one hundred dollar car towards some other streaming site work better. We'll be the way. I got an idea that you can do. That would be a great gift to josh. Deny take that two hundred dollars spread across trash. And i and find some kid out there who wants to write the outline week after week. That's good as well. That'd be the greatest gift. It'd be better than josh joplin. A bunch of players names saying that. He's two weeks in a row on that. Just this everyone's clear johnson's contribution at first until there's is jobs a bunch of players names and says i added notes. No he says beezer players that i would like us to talk about. Yeah and that's it. Congrats guys half with that group. That's not helping. It kneels out here air dirty laundry. Listen let's let's. That's a great question. Jay rich we appreciate it man That was a fun to close the listener questions. Outwit less job overnight. So obvious lock of the week. Not sure if the two have been paying attention but this gain was played today gave their boy. The w yeah. I'm done taking deep picks. I'm gonna i'm gonna start taken players. Who are picked to the fifth row drafts. Listen to this guy this this guy. Hey we have the caveat in place if you pick someone good they have to do. Grade and markey's brown scored a touchdown. God right around fifteen. Pbr point so. I don't know how josh did this week. But i know i did awful. So a million guests who won. I definitely one them. Sadly forty yards no touchdowns. Nothing so i definitely want definitely deserved it. I i mean. I won the regular season here guys so the question is do you guys want to continue this into the playoffs or you will shook at this point. I like trying to end it. While you're winning old crap. I can win out from here on out. i tell you. Think or maybe you've been win. That's probably true. That's fine that's fine. We'll keep this going. I'm just letting everyone know. I'm leading this thing. I feel comfortable right out so i'll start off the week. We've we've talked about this team a few times. You've actually talked about his other teammates. You guys know where fan of this rookie receiver. Even adams said. He thought the game was going to be a a shootout of sorts. So i'm going to gabriel davis buffalo wire receiver. Even when stefan day says good. Even kobe's he does good the rookie. Find his way into the game. Even for his colby. Touchdowns gabriel davis is a playmaker. The bills know it. I know it the listeners know it. I'm real gabriel davis Pittsburgh this week. That is my not so obvious. Lock of the week Josh who do you have. I want you to know before. I tell you that in a desperate situation where i ended up losing anyways i did start. Henry ruggs last week in a lineup. You're an asshole. Because i asked the question in a group chat. I said listen. Guys got a few different options here. I got a few different options. Have I didn't even know if i mentioned that i had rugs in there but i'm like i got rugs. You know josh reynolds. Gabriel davis and you guys were like. Josh reynolds duh yasser all like you know just pushing this narrative that it has to be josh reynolds and reynolds fan. So you know. I'm easy to convince when it comes to this stuff But i was like all right. I mean everyone seems to be saying josh reynolds. It's not who i had in. But he's available. Switch them out every single player. Besides josh reynolds did good game every single about us rentals by the way every said he didn't push them on me. You said every single player. adam josh. Yeah it is very tough. You're like henry ruggs. He can do. Good gabriel davis. Not too bad either. Yeah you can't say everyone josh. How this thing works. Well enough fair i think. A real davis. Who are you taking this week. I'm a real chad benson. This is not. Chris hansen from declining dumpster. Diving this week it. Listen is that is that chris hansen from deland amec's they catch a guy that will be all right. So hanson davis. You say we're dumpster diving atom. I'd love to hear who you have. Sir we'll i had to just for this occasion i wanted to know. Are we going with markey's brown type ix there. We go dumpster diving. And we're going dumpster and i'm going to the trash bin picking a guy from a team that has won a game all year. am not denzel mems. 'cause that's silly but i'm gonna ride the i johnson bandwagon. I think that you know if they get into another game script where they can feed the running back in any capacity They're they're gonna be feeding one guy the ball and Upside johnson You know if you can get some work in the passing game. They're playing the seahawks is going to be probably blow out. But a the seahawks passing games terrible. And you know the jets can move the football the heads. That's all i need for some opportunities to Scores touchdowns so give me tie johnson and Yeah i I'll go deep with you guys once again. You have. gabriel davis. Chris hansen from abc son. Anti johnson All right that's gonna be fun will throw it to twitter. We'll see what they think. We'll see where who side with this all trash player week of gordon adam. So we'll see which Pilot trash they choose but this is be a fun and siemian is way too close to close season out. I feel good. I'm gonna lead comfortable This nice guys. I appreciate you guys for another. W this week we'll see how it plays out Let's go to fowler no foul as we begin a wrap this show up. I have a few guys. The first one. Floyd mayweather vs logan paul. We'll have as many viewers as a regular mayweather fight will fowler no foul keep in mind. He's fighting. I know mayweather's passes prime. I know it's all over. i noticed. Expedition is not real. This that are not understand. These logan paul right guys. Eighteen instagram followers. Whatever it is these guys got fans for days. So it's fans logan paul fans for whatever they do concentration they are all a part of all these amazing things they do. Will they have as many viewers as a regular mayweather fight foul. Or i mean they will say they will fowler. Allow them as a regular mayweather fight in. What are we considering. Regular one of his popular mcgregor fight regular. I guess mcgregor well then no no way in hell. Are they getting anywhere. Near the conor mcgregor numbers. But i bet you they get close to what What the tyson numbers were Like one point five one point. Six mil pass it will that will they passed it. Probably oh man. I'm gonna say no. I think it's going to be right around there. Things are going to be like one million to one point. Five million in pay per view buys I think that you know anyone who paid to watch jake. Paul like we're paying four. Jake paul probably gonna pay for logan paul. I think most of the boxing heads who are going to pay for an exhibition. Match between floyd and logan probably the same guys who are going to pay for one with tyson and Jones junior so for me like. I think it's going to be pretty much the same sort audience. That's going to be watching. And then you had a bunch of caveats at the start. So i'm not even gonna get into why. This is the dumbest thing in the world. But i mean logan poll even lost the only fight he's ever had like. What are we doing. Yeah this is another youtuber like. It's just silly. If it was jake i'd at least feel like all right sir. He just you know flatlined the guy this kind of fun immediately. Turn around and make a fight with floyd. But then when i found out with logan i'm like what are we doing like really. What is the point of this and the point is to take your money and People are to give them money so the only thing that i would say that will help them. I don't know if you saw this but the The pay-per-view cost is relative to when you purchase it so something like the first million pay per view buys or up to a certain date. Can't recall which it is. It's only twenty nine ninety nine thirty bucks and then incrementally goes up from there so that might incentivize more people to buy because they're buying early at lower prices so there there's a possibility that they're structuring of it. Could push them closer to link the two million pay-per-view mark. But i mean even if they surpass million i mean that's that's huge franz has purposes. I mean i think the ufc had one pay per view all year. That went over. A million pay per view buys so. Yeah i mean it's a big deal all right at that's fair. Let me actually this. Josh switching to liberty for you fly may weather still impala. somebody will get knocked out fowler novell. Somebody's getting nine. Adam doesn't agree. He thinks be super. Saad dumps. Fuck immortal just you watch any combat sports. what are we doing. Knock somebody especially somebody who doesn't really know what they're doing right. I don't know i mean. Did floyd knock out the japanese guy that he fought. I think that was his last fight. And it was an exhibition match against the you die changes in japanese star whatever. It was either japanese or south korean and can't remember and i feel bad for not remembering Specifically because i don't mean to generalize but but yeah i mean it was another exhibition fight to get up. Yeah i mean it's going to be the same thing guys the wwe boxing. Honestly if you like boxing at all you should utterly hate what it's become because that pooh-poohing audience man. The people who are the most pay per view buys are going to fights. That aren't even real. It's just it's the wwe boxing and then you know you have real legitimate boxers that no one watches as we need you to appreciate this. You just got done talking about how stressed out and exile and this and that during covid nothing lodge. Come on man show some. I'm not paying money for an. Hey hey hey hey. We don't talk to me that you have to watch it. We live josh. Do news paying money for this stuff are we. Let josh admit to legal illegal acts not keep ours that we need at least two host here. all right the government will try to force everyone to get covid vaccines. They do kid shots for school. Fowler no foul adam and you guys really wanna take me down china take you there man Will they force people to like. They do first flu shots for school. Yes and i like the way that you had that caveat in there they're not going to force anyone they are however going to make it a requirement in order to do certain things. That's the difference that i see So i don't think necessarily anybody's going to be forced to take gate. You know back seen just like nobody's forced to take really any other vaccine but will they be requirements for things like going to school just like getting a vaccine for the measles is yeah for the exact same reasons as one of the what he thought. Man i want to see what you thought. Here josh. the agreement. Y- i i don't know if they will require. I mean we're still not requiring people to wear masks by would be. I feel very okay about covid vaccine. They they can give me. I will take my vaccine even if it has a stupid chip in it. Which is no okay. Stummer their hate. I hate that. We've gotten to the point where conspiracy theories are such a joke that the idea is they would put h. sipping a vaccine okay. i wear. That idea even came from is so fucking hilarious to me guys. We carry around a tracking device with us. Everywhere we go. I don't know what this chip is supposed to do. That's going to be so important that they'd have to sneak a vaccine to us. But that's not the concern. The concern is what has happened with actual vaccines for other things that haven't gone through extensive testing. Which is they have side effects and some of those side effects on certain vaccines have been as bad as causing infertility. So there are things that vaccines can have. That aren't microchips than the that are still really bad for the human body. So yeah i mean i get people's apprehension to just being like him take any vaccine that they put out there. That to me is an okay thing to have some apprehension around. I don't know what's in it. I don't know long-term effects. There's reasons to have some sort of apprehension to that. I don't think any of that apprehension is based in lieu gonna use that to put a microchip in me to keep track of where i am because let's be honest. They're already doing that very easily. Listen i will like to announce that we've hit the trifecta with adam today. We've had them. Slander odell beckham. We've had sander floyd mayweather in logan policy site. And now we've got him down the conspiracy vaccine issues so this trifecta for atta we appreciate all your. Hey i'm not handy but acts it off. The kids vaccinated is very important. This is a very rare situation. Where vaccine is being made on the spot and it isn't going through the same testing it. Just it's different. It should be different. I don't want to be made out to be sent back your complaints. Contact clock dodgers dot com and hey are thing extensively like they're not cutting corners on on safety and that's what will even folks. They've already administered it to a person so we'll say forty thousand people. Well i'm saying outside of the test runs they today. buys adviser. I think it is did their first. Like actual application of it outside of just trial run. So we'll we'll we'll see what happens. I mean it's gonna be it's gonna be very interesting to see how it plays out and how it affects social changes in policy changes in government and all that sort of fund. So yeah nothing but fun nothing to find and alas found that i had here for you guys not helping someone who looks they need help but isn't asking for it is okay fowler. No foul at them. You guys are going to hate me on this one It's no foul I think it's a really important to learn in life to ask for support when you need it. I think it's one of the things culturally that We struggle the most with I don't know if that's an american thing per se. Because i i'll be honest. I'm not super worldly. I don't know if people experience this all over and it's just a human thing But it's one thing that learn going through personal development seminars early twenties but the power of asking for support and being vulnerable enough to ask when you need support is huge. And also the implication that you're someone who is in need Can often come from a place of judgment Seeing somebody in a situation and just automatically assuming that they need year assistance to be able to get through into thrive without them asking for it. I can totally understand why that's majority of his time. That's planned coming from a very good place them. Almost all the time is going to be received from a very good place There are going to be those situations where you're trying to put out. You know this good intention to help someone But they're not in need of your assistance And i think that that's why it's important for people when they are needed assistance to ask but we all know people don't do that so it's a complicated question But why would like to say is. I think there's power in asking for support But that being said. I think it's also really important. Always looking for your fellow man and to see when people are needed and to try and assess the situations because as we know people are apt to ask for this. The need yeah. I thought about this. Because i've i've found myself a lot lately especially with kobe. And everything. if someone around me like drops something. I don't help them pick it up like if they're pandemic yeah and then like i see the old lady today at the grocery store. She was looking at higher on the shelf. And i'm not sure. If she was looking at some she was saying but how to get it or she's looking for something and how say mandatory offer help or do i just leave it alone. I didn't offer help. Because i'm like you know if she needs issues as such a good point. Yeah yeah yeah that's true. I mean it circles back to what i was just saying about asking for support but it is interesting to like. Look at how are you know. Social habits are just changing because of covid lee and being socialized to not interact with one another in ways that we would have the very normally before. Yeah i was something. I feel like an asshole an ornament. I'm like fuck. I don't know what i'll sit here. Don't want to you know. go for it by now. You know what i mean. Sound like shit. I'm gonna leave it. I dunno josh. Tae man. I what was the original No fell so not helping someone who looks like they need help. But they're not asking for it though to the struggling with something may need help with not asking though so i just ignore it. I think most of the time. I'm going to wait for them to ask. Okay so not a total asshole. Then it seems like you guys may be both astles with me or this is the common. Move to make But you know sometimes. I try to get out there and help people extra Bid other reasons and sometimes it doesn't knowing me when someone doesn't saying because they're like looking for you to ask So we'll see all right cool so i'm not the only one that's different during covid or just in general. It's not a fun thing. Act somebody they need help. And you're not sure closing in show intel this our last moment the podcast inlet where we can share thaad advice product. Anything you feel like sharing with the listeners. And they always share them back with those fun the his up on twitter all that good stuff so we appreciate you guys doing that. I'll start off algebra the gate here with a little Little pizza oven pizza action. That had the other day motorcity. Pizza co never had in my life never seen it my life. It was in walmart. Was it public. I'm not sure we're star was in. But i seen and i said this looks interesting. I've never tried this piece of before you know oven that you bake home could be hit or miss dependent on the brand the quality all that kind of good stuff but this one actually hit the park man. Deep dish good stuff. I enjoyed it. It was nice man. So if you're looking for an oven piece for home for the family is trying to relax. Take it to eat not not trying to go out all those good stuff motorcity piece of of anyone else's familiar with it having come across anybody else who's tried yet. I'm sure it's popular somewhere and just got here but it was good stuff man for some other pizza so shout to motorcity piece ago. Adam you know. I actually have to I had one But then i just had another one that appeared basically like an hour before we started recording So the one. That i was going to mention though. We're just off the top. But i was planning on is kind of unique. It's the first time. I think i've ever mentioned something that i haven't actually consumed or watch store experience because it was just announced but on december seventeen Comedian andrew shoals is having a tv show show on that links of it's called soul saves america And i don't know you guys caught Any of the little videos that he was doing on instagram had gone really popular. But it's an expansion on that and he was really just kind of doing another play on kind of that daily show motif that we've had for awhile person talking square box next to different things. Come up you know the. That's sort of format if you will But andrew shows has comedian. Who i've been a giant fan of for a long time. Now i mean i. I'm hard pressed to find any stand up comedian. That i think is funnier than him. to me he's just the top of the game right now and i am super excited as someone who's been a fan of him for a pretty decent amount of time now that he's getting this sort of opportunity on super excited to watch the show. I think it should be fantastic. So that's something that i was planning on talking about. I really hope. I bring goes out there and watch and Yeah i'm really excited to watch myself and then literally an hour before we came on the podcast Twenty one pilots to have been my favor. Banned for god's seven eight years now just released a christmas song which was super unique You know and no. It's something that probably isn't going to hit everybody But if you like christmas music If you like anything you've heard previously from twenty one pilots. It's definitely interesting. It's a by far one of the most unique songs that i've heard But i think anytime that you do something like for a holiday or that's like a special one off sort of song. I kind of appreciate when it's a lot different than the rest of your body of super happy to see that as well and Yeah go check out their Their new single What is the thing about december stomach team. The fan to manson. I'm excited for that. Excited and song sounds cool as well to check it out just because you're saying it's interesting. I'm curious christmas song for them. You don't often hear artists released christmas song. So you just kind of caught off guard by then even releasing okay. I guess and Yeah i mean. I like it. It's not my favorite thing. I've ever heard by initially machination. But if somebody who's not really like a big fan of christmas music it's definitely a unique take. I do like the feel of it. Gotcha camping out Josh you may think show and south today sir. I've got a couple things started watching the show on. Hbo called the undoing. And i don't know. I think it might be getting pretty popular because i was referenced on saturday night live but i i've seen a few episodes and i'm into it. So if you have hba should check that out and then also i have this app. And it's this is pretty corny. But it's called. I am and it just like. It's kind of like an affirmation zac that i am surprised. By how many times things that stupid outputs out like actually hit me. So i would recommend that type of people josh consistently dropping mental health type of show until here man appreciate dude i m at what. Is it like a push notification or something. Just possible your phone every day instead. It like how many times a day you want him. I think just do three times a day. Because i don't want to be like i don't wanna get over inspired.

The world is the guy who helps men in their forties fifties sixties seventies. Get in the best shape of their lives. Naturally boosted room. And i do that through you know. Workouts utrition recovery sleep and mindset strategies to help we office. And i have a program call over forty alpha brotherhood. Probably number four to five thousand guys all come. In out of shake desperate low testosterone hitting plateaus and daily we see believable transformations and so one of the things we do in the brotherhood is every single week. Ricky teen idol. Ricky second we answer all the questions that people post in our private facebook group that is our brotherhood man. I'm telling you the support group is insane but that's for another podcast And so every week they ask questions we get twenty sometimes twenty five fifteen and recognize said here and we answered the questions. Then we re post recovers everything up reposted snippets of those questions in the brotherhood. But we decided today that it wouldn't it be great. We can just have the long version which we have in the in the facebook group clutch. Put it out there because a lot of questions that we answer for the brotherhood are also questions that probably a lot of men in their late thirties forties with around the world have so we decided that we're going to put this out to the public added as one of the segments of the over forty podcast and hopefully you can learn something if you're not in the brotherhood and if you continue to lewis and go hey man what am i missing out on you while you're missing out on magic and a rookie is instrumental and works with me with the brotherhood. So once you kinda just let them know what you do and continues yourself a little bit. Not just in the but outside of that. Yeah yeah yes so me. And my twin brother we focus on kingdom building and so we work on the heartbeat of the brotherhood and the member. Experience said that it's unlike most other fitness programs in that people actually want to take the program wants to do the hard things And just really fine. Uniformity and belonging significance in a place on the internet In a time in a world where there is such loneliness and isolation specifically for men over forty. So that's what makes this program super special Not mentioned the fact that it also changes lives helps men get shredded and naturally testosterone said. They can Look good feel good and Run their kingdom so what this is all about is all the people who have questions along the way we actually give them personalized coaching allah funk. And then i go and splice a backup and so we realized with all this gold information for men over forty. We might as well make it more public. Yeah that's what we're doing here today. This is this is actually number thirty six so the thirty five other episodes are inside the brotherhood but we decided from now on. We're going to every week every time we do this. This will be an added. Bonus podcast so aside from all the up. This is going to be extra thought that maybe you know when you listen to this episode Long but you know maybe. Just listen to the episode. These are just questions that maybe you have. If you're listening right now. You may have these questions and answering the question. Maybe like okay i get i get it now. You know what. I mean like an end the reasoning behind. Because they're not just one. These are just word answer. Like sometimes i go deep in the questions and make sure that my guys in the brotherhood have everything. They need the other thing to keep in. Mind when you're listening to episode. Is that you're going to hear things like phase five in face three and you know what do i do. This happens and face to or whatever and the reason why is the program is based on so when someone comes into the program they start face. There's twenty six phases audio so far so every phase is twenty eight days. That's one and there's twenty six. You literally have twenty. Six months of brand new workouts follow along workouts. There's a seminole equipment. There's a set of equipment based is all home. They're all home workouts every single different one and you keep moving through the phases phase has. There's a reasonable phase just throw a workouts and every three months they t-shirt to hit milestones but the whole point of this is i try to make it as easy as possible. Nutritious very easy to fall the workouts a fall along they click play and they work out with me or me and my wife. Or what have you. Disturbed prerecorded sleeping recovery strategies. We have yoga. we have workouts. We have all of these routines that these guys followed to a t. and literally no. They doubling tripling sauce for nationally. What they're they're getting eight packs six packs and i'm telling you the when they come into the program they're not people who were in shape none of these guys. Maybe maybe a handful of thousands that are in here weren't in shape before coming in with these. Are these normal guys just like you listening. Normal ice guys are three hundred. Pounds are now hundred. Eighty five guys. Who are like you start throwing at two hundred now zone five so on and so forth that that thing in programming rick. Let's daily lives are being changed unbelievable. So if you're listening to this right now you know you're you're you're stuck. You don't have a program you don't know where to go here like man.

A sick man is the culture that we have within the our brotherhood is. There's nothing on the planet like these guys all say there's no other workout program. This isn't just a workout program like we're programs you by the program and you don't hear from your guy who sold data program pretty much never you don't. There's no. there's no coaching. I do coaching every single week. Live with these so and apart from what. You're listening to right now. This is just another thing. We'd do actually do live. Coaching every sunday at ten. Am we get on a call or coach. Run that call for two hours. And there's hundreds of minimal on zoom calls amazing but when you got you know just think about the programs that you've done in the past and what type of support from person soldier program the trainer the influence or whatever. They may be support. The answer. your questions did they. You know the day that they coach you along the way this is. This is what we do. And there's no program that us twenty six months of workouts. Progressives as you get fitter workouts get tougher and they can be done in the comfort of your own home and auto is clear place. So if you're if you're looking for program december right now january coming up dude like what you waiting for you want like. It's over four calm. I just wrote a goddamn book. Get your ass in here here to help you anyway. Man knows his stuff. Nobody i works this guy work anyway. It's not about me guys. Guys are doing the work anyways. Listen joy this episode. and also long intro. What enjoyed the episode. And let us know if you like it Give us a five in the in the apple. Itunes whatever and it will see you enjoy. yeah we got a big sponsor. Today are big sponsor today is enhance which is lined natural testosterone. Enhancer does booster. What i'm going to say enhancer. The reason why is because once you have everything in place on your workouts. Nutrition your god. Nutritional point Recovery sleep then what this does specifically for me is. It just keeps dawson levels at that high at that high level right. So is it going to increase testosterone. Why you know one hundred points. No definitely not that's-that's consistency but this will enhance it too. It's like a for me. I use this like a like an insurance policy. You know what i mean like. I'm doing everything great. And i know how important is awesome is so just having these ingredients. Magnesium zinc tributaries. I'll talk about hardy. Go in the second Saw palmetto some of these are great. Natural enhancers a tussle. Tosoh answers answers that will help you stay on top because a lot of other. Listen i'm going to be very frank with you very transparent. A lot of companies will tell you that attest assume boosting supplement will boost storrow. They'll tell you. oh yeah. This is going to boost your testosterone. But it doesn't work that way. It really doesn't these will boost your strom if someone just doesn't do anything else like you guys are doing. And then all of a sudden takes one of these. It's not gonna work hundred semi gonna work. So i don't also want to be that person to tell you that. Oh yeah this is going to boost but what this does is a. It'll just keep whatever levels you're at it just continues to feed the right ingredients that will help support and enhance your stroke. The other thing more poorly is the horny goat weed and long jacker. Perfect to take at night before you go to bed. If you want to have some you know little a little time with the wife a little berry white put on some barry white adult staff miss this this literally within minutes worse minutes so you take three councils for you're going to bed or whenever you want to. This isn't like a. yeah. I mean i would just take three capsules and you'll see what happened. So i like this. For the libido alum this for the libyan auto love this for enhancement. Just making sure that you have everything in place. I don't mind selling this. Because i know that i'm giving you guys everything you need. You got the workout together nutrition. You got the recovery. Got the mind asleep and you have everything you need. So you know that you're taking this is going to enhance. What also go. If you have a wife or girlfriend she will love me for this. Grab your tests nance we just got a whole bunch in stock grab it get it and for those of you were doing the muscle building program. This is also a nice little again supporting the hormones. That help you built muscle so testing. Ads click the link. Grab it to them. Unreal endorsement supplement. It works it works. It's why it's on the shelf right for sure for sure are a or going to kick it off. Thirty six with a cr peeps cr peeps what supplements and vitamins. Should i use. I've never used any arrangement before what you recommend. Yussel great question. See our peeps and welcome to the brother. I just wanna premise this. By telling you guys that you know supplements as we get older supplements are important. Can they're extremely important. You must have supplementation in your health and fitness as we get older k. That's so important because a lot of guys coming for grammar never supplement guys right. I don't take supplements wanna take supplements but supplements what they do is ensure that we get the vitamins and minerals that. Were not getting from our natural food. We still have the national food but of course food that we see the broccoli that i had when i was eleven is different from the broccoli today. What i'm fifty one like. They can't even compare right don't they. Don't even compare so we add as we get older. Our bodies change your hormones. Change joins all of these things. Start to happen and on top of that. If you're doing this program you are at a. You're out in the band's level of fitness gay. Your level of fitness is higher. Your body needs more. Your body needs more to be a function this hyping. They'll be united couch potato anymore. You're not oh. I'm on and off this workout program. All you're not you're not all having work done longtime your friends who you see sitting around doing nothing. You're not that guy they can get away actually can't but they can get away really with not having supplements because they don't do anything. Their bodies aren't as active as ours are right there at the optimal level that we are striving for so as he moved through this program. You will need supplements not one hundred percent. And as we get older we will need supplements. We don't want to be taking medication right. We don't want to be taking medication. I thought it before taking protozoan for an it's destroyed me. But i needed to take it to live. We need supplement. So you know that. That's why i have. This supplement company. That's why folks. Because i know that as we get older we need supplements but there's so many supplements out there so many garbage supplements out there that you have to be. You have to have something that you can trust someone that you can trust. And that's that's me because you know. I'm here for you guys so let's talk about supplements okay. So we'll see our peeps. So the first thing i would say is i don't know what phase you're in so that got does how that plays a big picture in what i'm going to phase one okay. Phase one okay. So this is huge. Okay so you're in phase one. So i advice to you is to grab the men's vitality stock. The men's by tally. Stock has four supplements that That i call it our foundation supplements that we should all be taking like them every single. What have you guys should be taking the men's by tommy stack one hundred percent because those four supplements are the foundation supplements that we need as men as we get older. I alpha daily which is our multi-vitamins right. That's that's the key to my supplements movements. I'm gonna be black santa coming in. Oh allah this own literary christmas house baby by the house doesn't do anything small so anyways i on pulling out all talk about them. So yeah also. Dale is are like i mean this is this is a no-brainer in regards to know what i'm gonna pause a squirrel and get myself okay so block santa's here and and yes. I'm only muscle black san just because of the name of raw adults here and we can have to worry about that. Some people so blood center. Why can't you just be said we're actually grown man fifty years all we can take it all right. Sorry i didn't want to get here. We go okay. Black is coming with the men's vitality stock so once again every single one is. This is what you should be taking from the get-go okay. That's like that's like i wouldn't say day one. I really my goal is to help you. Guys get into the habit of eating nutrition all that stuff so you know in phase one you should. You should be focusing on your nutrition. You're changing everything up. You're focusing on your workouts getting being consistent recovery all that stuff but as you go through a phase one and moving kind of interface. Too late phase warned. The ones you want so alpha daily is the first one you walked. This is our our multivitamins again in a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff. That i'm showing you have been re-engineered so the ones that you get everywhere. This is just a really high quality of a multivitamin. Because i also we also have the mail support with this. We also have the immune support and we also have antioxidants in here as well. So this gives you everything you need again. Vitamins and minerals. You're not these are supplements. So they supplement your nutrition. So you got that attrition. you're eating healthy. But now we're going to. We're going to have that insurance. We're going to fill the gaps so alpha daily for so. I take these every morning. I actually all of this is what i take in the morning. Alpha daily one hundred percent. So it's a personal. The second one is a probiotic in the reason. Why on probiotics is because gut health gut. Health is is huge only. He's got health going to help us with the ability to absorb the foods that were actually eating because a lot of times when we have unhealthy god's leaky gut syndrome. We have a constipation into just all of those things that go on bloating. All of that stuff a lot has to do with. Probiotics are with their gut health and not having a healthy gut and so once again you get contrition clean up your diet outing. Probiotic will help because this will help. Give you the the enzymes that you're going to need to help clean up the cleanup that guy but not all products are made equal. So you may go and you may. Someone may come to you go. Yeah you don't really need probiotics. You need like kimchi. And some of that other stuff or is to take pro and it didn't work and the reason why they're saying that is because most products aren't very effective because what happens is in the manufacturing process of probiotics. It has to go through the freezing. It's gonna go through heating. It's got to go through all kinds of different things and by time. You get the probiotic mcconnell. It's already lost a lot of its its power and then once you you take it. It's completely you literally. This has forty million. forty billion. forty billion Us right in this time you you take a a general ah probiotic. You're not gonna get that at all. So i do understand why people say probiotics. Aren't that great. We have what's called the metric system here which means that this probiotic the products in here have a casing protective case that protects them through all of the manufacturing process. Then once it gets your stomach or orgy mouth to your stomach. It's got down protective layer. So my time it gets to your stomach it. has you still have all the the strength of of of this supplement. Forty billion. i use so that makes us difficult metric bypass technology. And it's it's a patented technology. That's in this. So this is a very good probiotic. I take one of these mornings then of course vitamin d. Three and k to remind three very very central right now with covert happening the pandemic happening there have been many studies. That have just come out to show that a lot of people who are dying from cove it. Liquor virus are vitamin d. Deficient and most people in the world are vitamin d deficient. And if you live in a country right now that's or if you're in the uk or you live in the states where there's no sun specifically in the winter. Your vitamin d deficient if you are a black male or a male a male of color your vitamin d deficient right. So this is huge like this right now should be. This is a not even not even a question. Like you gotta be taking vitamin d three. Yeah we. We actually bought solar lights for a christmas tree. He was a good idea. They barely ever turn on rush me. If that's a little indication of how much sunlight. I'm getting a window. These do right right. Yeah yeah so exactly which so. We and and only way to get vitamin d. Really the best way to get vitamin d three. There's different vitamin these. Vitamin d. three is the best the highest type and quality vitamin d. That you want is through the sun. You can get a little bit from food like milk and stuff. What milk is not as estrogen. We we don't we don't we. Don't drink milk care so you have to. You have to have to have half the half. The is great for bullets. And when you put these together in enhances the absorption of vitamin d three so the third one fourth one. Another foundation omega threes fish oils once again omega. Threes are essential fish oils. Essential fatty acids that we need in our diet that we don't generally get it for not eating enough fish for not eating enough fast. Now this initiation your plan. We do have a lot of fats. But adding there's omega threes mega sixers omega nine. Okay what the problem is. As most of us as ninety percent of us. I believe is we have two to one or even three to one omega nines omega threes in our body right. We're supposed it should be flicked. We're supposed to have three to one omega threes. To mega mega six. So we're already getting enough of that too much. So we need to counter that with omega threes puzzle we for inflammation keeping inflammation down a health. All four of these vitamin d. Three formula system right for bones k. To probiotic got omega threes. And that's the challenge that the person you're going to want it. I take these in the morning every morning. With my breakfast everyone takes literally thirty seconds to take them out of the bottles and put it in my mouth and drink water okay. So because a lot of people are like who's not too many pills. How can you take many pills than a hassle. It's thirty okay. A minute at the most one minute of your day to ensure that you get super super healthy is nothing. It's it's a minute of being on your social media looking at stevens right. So that's that's number one. The other essential that you need is libro thirty so this is arlene thirty protein powder. This is now again. This is re engineered. I told this and made it from scratch again. I'll get this anymore house. So basically the reason why i created lean pro thirty protein powders because i know that we need protein. We need extra sources of protein. Now we can throw into our smoothies into our our our porridge in the morning using the shakes but most protein powders out. There are horrible because they have fillers sugar. They've got soy. We've got all the things. I kill artist ostro. So i need to make an you know protein powders taste crappy most of them unless they have a ton of sugar in it and they leave us bloated and farting you're not supposed to and feel bloated having protein. You're not like that's not supposed to happen. That happens because of the junk that people put into their protein powders so i made sure that this is super super clean. We've got a one hundred percent grass fed protein so that's a huge new zealand new zealand. They cannot the cows cannot use hormones they have to be naturally fed so they're grasping is quality and added probiotics in here too because studies. Show that when you had probiotics bbc thirty with protein you have twenty three percent better. Absorption which for you is important because you wanna make sure you're getting as much protein into the body We also have lactose free. 'cause i'd like tolson taller so if you are lactose intolerant. Don't worry this works lactose free. It's stevie sweden so there's no sugar non. Gmo kosonen kills thrown non gmo to other things highest quality proteins ninety nine percent protein with every scoop so every time you twenty grams of protein ninety percent of this protein powder. The other six is the pro. The other one is the stevia. So do you know exactly. What's in your protein powders filled with with everything else. Most other things have like seventy percent or eighty percents really good. This is quality but the most important thing and the reason why we can't keep this on the shelf literally were out of chocolate. Now we've got four hundred coming and we're probably won't be able to keep it on. The shelf is because it tastes absolutely incredible. The taste is undeniable. It's amazing so those are the four that i would start with those. So the the mitalent stock and lean pro. That's where i want you to start and then after face three then i want you to jump into. Bca's and pre-workout don't want to overload you right now so i want you to ask this question again. After face rate i don't want to overload. You read if you could put the other stuff into what i wrote here into the post while like after base read at you're going to add as an pre-workout because pre workouts going to help you get through some of those face four face. Five workouts are perfect because you want to preserve your muscle and build muscle as we're going through and then after face six then i would add the vapor i would add shred ultra shred and i would add sleep shred which is coming sleep shreds a sleek supplement that also will help you burn fat so that will be coming and then finally it now if your goal is to build muscle at one of these points then you'll have creatine beta alanine. Nbc a all of those. Which i have so that's it Cr hope that helps the vitality stocks. Where you wanna go. Alpha daily guided the multivitamins omega threes. You know let's go for inflammation good for health. Fish oils essential vitamin d three in k. Two for the sun for immune system and there's way more benefits as bombs giving you the top ones and k to four bones in a for a gut and then of course lean pro. You need a protein powder one hundred percent the only one that's it that's it like in ra We're going to go garage. Bull guaranteed i butchered. That name. says is eighth day in the program when he wrote the post in the past. I've always observed that way protein even in energy bars flares goat in four to six hours. Once i get it i lose about four to seven days and it just feels terrible my question for you as much protein supplement. Would you recommend since. I'm scared of gout. I'll try and do a couple of months without it. But now i'm going to need it sooner or later rubbed hundred percent. You're definitely going gonna need it. And okay so i answered one of these questions but for now the reason why i did a lot of research on out and you're not the only person that has gone by the way grabbed. There's a couple. There's one other person has gout. And i believe he uses the protein power that i'm going to share with you and it doesn't bother him right now. I don the protein powder now the reason why you are getting a flare when you have protein powder and energy bars for sure is because they have sugar and sugar will flare up your out one hundred percent. That's one of the things you have to avoid when you have gout which is for someone who has yes definitely your nutrition has got to be on point. I mean i also your protein sources you have to really be very specific in the protein sources to. I totally understand that for you. The reason why you want lee improved thirty. Which is my my way. Protein is because there's no sugar in this boating about it. There's zero shirts. Because i know personally and for you guys. That sugar kills are just awesome. Sugar makes us fat right so the reason why you are getting those flare ups is because the way protein using cheap there fillers got sugar in it and they probably have some of the things that will help you will hidden in it that flare up. Gout and energy bars in the works energy bars and protein bars. Those are chocolate bars right. They're basically candy bars tons of sugar. Right it may not say sugar buttocks it's hidden processed. It's it's not what you should be inning. So lame pro are just get one bottle. Want you to test one bottle of this right because this has this. Is all new zealand protein grasp that projects no hormones stevia sweetened lactose phrase of your lactose intolerant. Lactose free that may be something to not sure. No soy free gluten free so no gluten no soy and it's got the probiotic in there that will help with absorption. But i want you to get one bottle of this and try it and see what happens. I know that's scary. Because when you have way protein your seven four to seven days. So i know can be scary but i. I'm very confident that this will. You'll be able to use us without getting a flare up on pretty confident. I wish i knew the other person had to go. Because i would ask him to. I would actually. I would actually hook you guys up because he also has got and i wonder if he's taking lean pro anyways. I would go with one bottle. Let's try it was see what happens but i'm pretty. I'm sure that the reason why you're getting. Because i would i may have. I may have backed off when you said just the protein powder but then when you added energy bars i'm like oh that's one hundred percent and then i looked i read them all. That's one million percent does one one million percent. That's why try this out and let us let us know because If if this is gout if this is Friendly then hey man we've got a whole new type of people we can go crowd gang. Thanks grabbing let's keep in touch keep in touch. Let's let's let's figure this out. Yeah you know how to reach us. And i'll post a link below this video. Awesome gasoline pro rights next abdullah abdullah. My mother makes homemade butter using two ingredients. Only buttermilk in heavy cream. Since we don't have grass fed butter here is possible to rely on it as alternate to grass fed butter. You ask great questions man. I love your questions guys because it really forces me to go out and research research research research you know i i. Sometimes i like doing it sometimes. I don't you know. I know that the more i research the more learn right and with this program and to start your own and keeping guys healthy you know. I don't know everything. I don't know a one hundred dollars. I know but there's also a ton of something. I don't know that it's out there. So the short answer is yes. That's a short answer. Yes one hundred percent. yes you know. Heavy cream contains a lot of vitamins and nutrients that are beneficial to your health. Just like grass fed butter. Does the reason why any other persons living the reason why we use grass fed. Butter is because of the high quality of that butter and because it has so many nutrients in their vitamin b. k. Two mega threes. And it's also got higher council beta carotene all berry berry healthy for us the other you don't want regular body. You definitely don't want margarine. Those are the things that that will raise your court your cortisol levels. You're bad cortisol cause fat storage so every cream is good rich in fats. So that's perfect. Keeps blood sugar. Stable perfect provides the energy perfect. And when you. I know that a lot of people actually use heavy cream in in bulletproof coffee so i'd bulletproof coffee because i'm working. I'm working on a project right now. That has been working sixteen seventeen hours a day from still almost dusky again. Sometimes and so. I'm now having three of these day one in the morning what the afternoon and then one again all probably have another one night time session so So i'm not getting a ton of great sleep. When i have something to do so i i have. I have bulletproof coffees so black coffee. A big huge chunk of grass fed butter has to be grass fed and then. Mcat power. so i am cdt. Powerlifter on there. I may actually create an mcat potter for for you. Guys just Just more people want us but not so right. Now i'm sweating because it's also metabolic burn fat so if you drink coffee. Black coffee switched to grass-fed. Because i also i'm also getting fat. Mostly healthy fats. I'm also getting metabolic. It's got medium chain triglycerides. Emc mcat which is perfect so the question is yes. You can definitely go with your mother's homemade butter. maybe you. Mother wants ship some homemade butter over to canada. That'd be great But just for other people are listening. If you don't have a mother who can make buttermilk and heavy heavy cream butter than g. is a very good or i don't know i got to look to see how you pronounce. But it's a form of butter. That's popular in asia southeast asia and in india and it has a tons of benefits as well and so you could actually use g or g instead of grass fed butter. If you don't have it in in the region the world where you live so hopefully that helps there you have it. Everybody's gonna jump on the opportunity. Butter yeah grass-fed but guys listen. I'm telling you look costs a little bit more. But when i go get grass fed butter i get like six or seven bricks and a british last pretty much a week because not only do i it in my coffee and right now. It's going crazy. But i put it on everything like i on my rice border on my sweet potato butter on my pto barter. Seriously man like because. I know that we need healthy. Fats and butter grass fed. Butter tastes amazing. I sometimes i get the salted sometimes. They consultant doesn't matter. Just feel feeling about the little salty around the salt. I feel like you know what i can. I can go without it. Then i will. Yeah definitely guys should be going out there and grabbing a ton of grass fed butter and using it on everything. Happy holidays all right jolly old water naga. I'm drinking water. Known everyone gets gets dairy. Everyone gets dairy. Everyone gets supplements. Everyone gets gifts or the white christmas after all black and is bringing the white. Chris get it twisted into your me. Yes clown liberal approach works. Yup yet young should be making the bulletproof so everyone gets. Yeah you can tell. Fox still got energy at four thirty p. l. huge huge huge. All right. let's go to josie man. I just started. Phase eight anime shred and do not find it challenging at all. Do five daily use a weighted vest and put maximum effort but barely sweat in my heart. Rate doesn't go up that much. it's just too easy. What other workouts can incorporate. Should i do a thirty day. challenge again. Or maybe a metabolic muscle program. Would he recommend. So when i read this when i read. This actually juicy was on on our koji goal. When i read this i was like i was so proud of who i was so proud. Because when someone's telling me that my workouts are too easy. Because i'm sure. Joe josie joe zemun wasn't level when he first started right. You were not deliver your now. So i'm like this is amazing like this is this is this is well and you know what to be honest with. Everybody feel very honest today when i put the program. Together the fate all twelve phases. I didn't realize that you guys. I mean i realize you were gonna get in better shape. That's why have awful. Plus the reason why. I've plus they know that. By the time he get the face twelve. It's like i can't keep giving the same workout so you've got this challenging anymore. I didn't realize that happened in phase. Eight so i'm trying to. I'm trying to position this in a way where Okay so phase nine is hypertrophy muscle. It's a different type of training and you need dumbbells. So i'm not sure if that's what you wanna do or if you want to combine the work because i do know that there are a lot of guys on. I didn't realize it was happening but on the coaching calls. They told me that they actually some guys in like they. Seven and moving on they do both workouts. They do the main workout with with dumbbells. And then right after that. They'll do the why you workout. Because i'm like oh the work twenty twenty minutes so they jump in there and do the body workout so sometimes when when it's applicable sometimes people do both workouts on sold for those who are listening here. We have no equipment workouts and we have workouts may workouts dumbbells but sometimes the whole phase is like the phase. sometimes they'll be no equipment workouts in the main workouts. But in general. I had to put a whole slew of nordstrom and workouts for the for the first twelve phases to ensure everyone can at least go through twelve phases without any equipment. So there's a few things here number one if you trump look look as night and see see what what you're feeling about god is and what i would suggest to you in phase because different types of training writings. It's high purchases still metabolic. You're lifting. And i would do if you still don't find that's not gonna see here's the thing it's not here's the thing about the hypertrophied training it's not about burning yourself out at the workout. It's about building building muscles so it's a little different mentality that being said if you're like okay you know what i'm gonna do the hypertrophy workout and then i'm gonna follow it up with the body weight workout and just use that as a finisher and then the app and then the stretch. That's what i would do in face. Because i want. I want you to get your faith. Nine t shirt before you move on at least get that base nineteen so do phase but try both workouts right and try to go a little bit heavier on the hypertrophy. Now phase ten eleven and twelve. You may have to double up on the workouts. If you want or you could skip going off a plus because alva- plus will definitely challenge you definitely you the more challenging It starts off with with you. Don't have to metabolic muscle program start starts off with lean muscle workouts. Actually yeah. It starts with metabolic muscle helpful. Plus so you could. I would get face do phase nine right get get the get the get the t shirt and then say to yourself. Okay do i want to. I mean you've got bass yacht like five rounds like yeah. You're probably gonna want to java plus and you know you could always come back and do face ten twelve after you finish off a plus twelve months from now and do a couple of you know what i mean like. There's always you can always go back because those workouts are pretty good. The workouts are pretty good and the body only workouts and face twelve. I think are tougher. The bottom of workouts. I put in base. Ten eleven and twelve are almost as tough if not tougher than the main workouts. 'cause i added them so if you did do both like if there's a day where you can do to those workouts. I would do that if you're finding that you're not getting enough right because remember we. You can do both workouts in one day. Like when you're when you're moving into the later phases you can double up on workouts because we have those recovery days right. It's not like we're breaking down our body day after day. We have recovery days. So i don't mind doing that joe but let me know what you pick you. Choose because i be. I wanna i wanna just i want to kind of like Monitor how you're doing you know. Want to monitor how you're doing and seeing how it's going because you're not going to be the only person who will get to this point and feel like these workouts aren't challenging them so having the two workouts actually make sense now so hopefully that helps are a double up. Good luck but We got hershon. Yediyat of cra sean. Yet have starting phase. Today did my measurements this morning. Virtually no change in two months definitely hit a plateau any advice on how to prompt the body back into positive change. Yes so great question christian yet off a great great to have you here. Starting face eight So i i need more information are definitely need more information the first thing so just to let everybody know other people are listening. What happens sometimes with our bodies as they get to their optimal weight and their optimal size for me. A hundred and eighty five. I'm literally one hundred eighty five. Give or take five pounds either way for ten years. My body just loves one eighty five. I can stay. Lean one of the five. I got a six pack. Five rhythm shredded at one. Eight body loves it onto ninety s. When i was doing the hypertrophied max muscle. I was one ninety four. So i got i got up. I got like one hundred ninety four. Were shooting those workouts. And i told some of these guys before i actually wanted my auto away to be down at one. Eighty one one one seventy nine. I wanted my often. Wait to be one seventy nine so for a time. it was. My optimal weight was out one. Seventy nine that was like where my body was starting to change. Starting to like like i have to be very very diligent to get there but i couldn't sway at all. I had to be super diligent. I had to. I had to make up really tougher. Lake nicole fashir to work outside the in these fast shredder workouts. We're bodyweight workouts. Which you guys will probably do an awful prime on. They're very tough very challenging. And my fishing hoyt my supplementation at the point. A us ultra shreds. I had to really do that for a month to get it to one wednesday. The united states. But what happened was because i had to do this. The high pressure program in the max muscle my body bounce the other way because when you're building muscle you're going to put on size right. You're gonna put on size and water. So so i'm back on vinyl about back. Twenty is back to what eighty five so we do get to optima weights. It's not necessarily a plateau like a negative plateau right and plateaus. Generally art are a little bit longer than too much right there little longer two months but i need to know a few things number one. What is your goal. What are your goals. Because are you on a plateau where you wanna lose more weight or you wanna burn more belly fat or you want to. You know what i mean or are you on a plateau where you gain muscle right like what what is the plateau. So i need. I need to understand that before. I can tell you which way to go because i need because i don't know what the plateau is so fr anyone listening to this in the future. We feel like you've hit a plateau because you haven't had and and what. What were the measurements. That were virtually the same because you say there are virtually no change but is there no change or is there a change like sometimes. It's too slow sometimes listening goal. We have a big rock right. And we're pushing this rock up this mountain. This is a steep steep amounts. So sometimes you're pushing. That rock feels like a better other times. You're barely moving the rock. But you're still going forward. You're still getting results. An and sometimes it could be months. You're doing this and then all of a sudden boom you explode into like. Oh man i you know. I put all this hard work in. I got little change and then i it just. You just needed to come. It's like it's like you're building something building something building something. Art actually is like your where the person's underground right and they're trying to dig a ditch and dig a hole to the other side where it's open and they get right here because they've been working so hard it feels like they're not getting closer not getting closer working so hard they get to handle like forget this they turn around. All they had to do was dig for another day or two boom. It would've been like massive results right. That can happen sometimes. You got you just have to keep. He'd going right. he's gotta keep going. Because you will you specifically if you lose a lot of weight or your body changes very drastically and all of a sudden it stops. That change could be the optimal weight it just could be. Your body needs to settle at where it is like. Okay man listen. I can't i got to settle down here for a second. I gotta let me to settle down here. Get strong keep his levels up and then we'll go for another bout of change right a big change. You don't generally change the same way the entire year. It's gonna it's good. They're going to be some laws but that being said. I do need to figure out where you're at so please ask that question again. What i need to know what measurements your goals are. And what were the changes or non changes that you didn't see. Did you lose two pounds. Did you lose a one percent body fat like all of those are changes and changes in the right direction. So what you think is. Virtual change could actually be no. That's that's good man. Yeah you're just trucking along you're in phase eight eight months so and christian. You may want to come on and coaching colin sunday. And ask that question then too. Okay because I can get to that question illegal. Lot of other guys would love to hear the answer that as well so we got eric. Has anyone found themselves crying on. The verge of crying at the end of an intense workout is explain. -able requested eric. I love. I love this question my brother because again i need. I need a little bit more information. Okay because there could be two things happening here. Okay number one. You may have a lot of estrogen. So if you're just knew. I'd eric's new diva no not not new now. So so eric's if you're like first of all ostra checked one hundred percent like to get your testosterone checked 'cause because you saying that lends me to believe he may third. Oh shit okay. So oh god okay. Well first things first to sossamon check so put the link to get your testosterone shots one hundred percent because there could be two things happening here number one. You could have a lot of estrogen still in your body and got because those are female hormones and your hormones may be out of luck and sometimes you just break down crying because of the hormones for no reason like when i was taking credit zone zone is a the worst steroid prescription drugs you can take because of the side effects that gives you specifically for man because not only do get a big head you gain weight but you also have female hormones. Utah's levels plummet and like i was getting hot flashes. I was. I was so emotional. I house crying. I was watching seinfeld. I'd be crying like what what's going on you know. And that's how i to get show. What is wrong with you. Dr friends guy. Oh my god got yeah. No wait for instance garbage garbage as always on my house seinfeld france or maybe we should put up a poll. Okay put up a poll friends or seinfeld put them the poll and for our next put the poll and our in our next episode. We'll ask that question of put up a poll. People see the results. I want what. I want people to know the results on the spots alatel. Yeah casey miss it. Yeah for sure. Yes so on their pockets president. Okay so Eric okay so give us estrogens. The other thing you could be is. Are you crying out of happiness that the workouts done like. He is a tears of joy. Like what what are the tears right like like. I think it's definitely hormonal i. I'm feeling it's hormones. i don't know anyone who cries. I cried after workouts. Because they've been so frigging training sessions where they've been really really hard and really really tough and just cry out of the joy of finished it. I've never. I don't know. I haven't cried by not again. That's not a bad thing or good thing. It's just i mean. I know i have done that before. So i know where you're coming from but i think it could be. Hormonal could be hormonal. But i'm interested to see what other guys said to. Maybe a lot of guys probably didn't even comment on that. Because i know men are like cried but no. That's a that's a real thing i've hundred cried. After sparring sessions you know good sparring sessions. You know what. I mean so But again eric. I'm wants you to read this question. Give me more detail. You mean more detail on. Give me more detail are are. that's eric. Eilly will link the testosterone test kit below. And then we've got lawrence. Pk light look lawrence. Congratulations lawrence became man. Senator ab more transformation is insane like we have listened. Everyone's transformation is insane. Believe me everyone is every time i look. I'm like this is insane yours. Doors and say because lawrence the reason why because lawrence p kanai had many many conversations throughout this process. I'm not losing. A fatty says and this is now we've had these conversations. The the thing about lawrence is he just trusted the pro- the process and he stayed in the process and he asked questions and he continued to do it now. He looks insane but he does have a whole bunch of questions. So let's get to the. But no congratulations lawrence manure. You're absolutely incredible. You're you're beacon of what this program success can be a when you when you stay consistent or sure. Phase ate to cheese. I remember when he first came in here. Wow that's seen like eight months ago. But i remember though i remember remember lawrence began a three day challenge in fact i think he did the very day challenge unbelievable unbelievable. He asked questions. He gets results but We've got a theme going. For this episode. He seems to be hitting a weight and body fat plateau at one hundred and eighty pounds seventeen percent body fat so phase. Eight thinking about doing a fast fast again to shred more so question. One d recommend weekly twenty four hour fast or intermittent fasting sixteen eight and then youtube for intermittent fasting do eat three meals in the eight hours or just two meals grinded answers question for him. So i think you're less than seventeen percent in fact you are one hundred percent less than somebody who's a body fat song. Don't get it twisted you are. You are definitely in the in. The in the custodial surround own for sure. I guarantee it because remember the present. Wifi percentages usually are a little bit higher than the generally are And what his yes. What this does not shock me that you hit a plateau because when you came in here to where you're at right now is a difference. It may not look massive. Been the numbers but in the in the visual. It's a mask your body's completely transform completely transformed and so it it makes sense to me right now that you're you're for you. Now specifically at one eighty and seventy percent body cup. I'm thinking of probably fifteen or even fourteen. I'm gonna. I'm gonna say mostly fourteen for sure from the picture anyway. This is where your chains are going to be very small now. Your changes are going to be super small. They're not gonna be. You're not going to get big changes anymore. You're gonna smaller changes. And i don't even think you're a change. Should be weight related anymore. I don't think you're to be weight related anymore. Like don't your weight is not even the scale. Shouldn't even be part of your your your your your regime i think body fat percentage the way you look the way you feel right But yes getting rid of that. Last fat getting rid of that lack shredding is very difficult. And you really have to stave gotta stay on point which you have been. Which is why you're shredded. What i know you want to shred even more so a view things. Yeah i think shocking your system into shocking. Your system into intermittent fasting would be something that would garner some results as well. It's a great way to kind of like. Because i remember when i when i was doing three meals a day and then i switched. Intermittent fasting videos on youtube from like twenty fifteen like i was disgusting. The shredded like it was unbelievable like it was crazy. I think twenty fifteen like it was really training diligently in and Yeah like i was crazy shredded. I was intermittent fasting and just switched to it. And so i would use sixty eight and generally with imminent fasting. I'm only eating two times a day. I don't it's very hard for me to get three meals in in our window very difficult so by two massive meals to be. I make sure. I have a lot of cars on those plates and i have a big meal of cars sergey cards five vegetables. Same same thing that. You're eating when i generally get to sometimes even one sometimes even one i remember. I remember near the end of fasting days which was getting of this year. Sometimes they'll have one meal because it just the day gets away from me. And i would eat a big meal and i wasn't doing a one meal a day but it just would get away from me so I would go with. So i would go with definitely the Sixty eight and you have to get that sixteen as your other question later. Because i think he talks about coffee and then don't sweat getting two three or even one me don't sweat. It just makes you. Every plate is got a lot of food on it and that way. You don't have to sweat if you only get two meals in right. Maybe on your off day you get three meals and your workout days you may only get to. Which is weird. why I just. I just find that on my workout. As i usually just only rt. Because i need after my workout then. I don i need an need again. Or what have you so anyways two or three whatever you get. Don't don't sweat it if you get one. Someday you'll get three days to get to. Maybe one will slip in there. Don't don't sweat it. don't sweat it but the sixteen eight list for two months unless you for the next two months your face right now ooh For three months on because phase eight is phase. Nine hypertrophy metabolic. So you're not probably not gonna see too much of a change and but face the three months of fasting and see how we do and then that's something christiane could also do with as flato. Yes yeah but. I don't know i don't know what his toes whether it's a muscle belly plateau or krishnan definitely You can definitely do that. But i need. More information on is platts lawrence solely heads. Like he's hitting one eighty. He wants to shred. So i know exactly where he needs to go. You're right no no. No we're good we're good. We got another okay lawrence with another question about smoothies shakes assuming i eight three full meals a day can smoothies be taken as craving killers mid afternoon or in the evening and if yes should i put. All four. Ingredients are just carbs or fruits. Okay so i just answering a question. Before from lord's. Pk about adding intermittent fasting and only getting two meals a day. Maybe three now you want you have cravings and mid afternoon or the evening and you wanna you want a smoothie not shake so difference between smoothies the you have all foreign radiant shaky just have water and whatever you wanna put in so if you add another smoothie with all four green is because that's the only thing that's the only smoothly you would make as with foreign radiance i mean then you're gonna you're not gonna get shredded so you're not you're not gonna get it because now you're adding a fourth meal so you're not gonna get shredded. What i generally do is if i am. I don't do it anymore. Because i don't have cravings because i eat a lot of cards so i make sure i never have. I don't have the option in craving. But what i will do is i will have a smoothie arthritis shake so i'll i'll take water cold water and i'll put two scoops of protein in there and i'll shake it up and drink it and it and then i'll drink another water and because of the protein powder tastes so good. I get my sugar creek. I gave my sweet tooth done. Plus it's a protein grand so it's perfect. Body could always use more protein at anytime of the day. So whether it's nighttime like the other thing. Too hunting protein. Nine is a great thing to do for you. Go to bed like it's amazing. I remember when i was doing a body for life way back in the day. I wanted to get lean way back one of the things that you would do for body for life which was like a transformation program that bill phillips was huge people premium ruining millions of dollars. In fact. i know three people. I know three people why to this day. Might who i. Who are other finnish people who want joel marian sean hassle camera. Third what what is a french card cameras name. But like the to sean and marriage all they actually what they actually want money doing buddy for from way back in the day but one of the things you would do is you'd get up in the middle of the night and drink. Smoothie are shake. And i used to do that all the time. It was perfect because again protein during the recovery process your body recovering during sleep. So we've got we've got the the reliance guy so Anyways what i would do is i would just do the shake not the smoothie And have more carbs but you will gain weight if you have four meals so you're not going to get shredded all right. Keep that in mind question. I think we got. I think you can do yoga. I think we can do a more on lawrence. He's got a question on pro and b. c. a. is big breakfast guy so full breakfast protein carbs fats fruits on fifteen minutes after his workout. How integrate lean prone as as a shake. Right after breakfast or mid-morning shake or mid afternoon shake or something else after your workout or mid-afternoon shake okay. I've got coming. We'll get back so do you want me to pauses. Yep okay lawrence be cake you twelve k questions on ultra shred if you're just starting on daego straits two pills per day before the workout or progressively one pill for a week and moved to two pills from then on and do we need to reduce the volume of daily coffee. I usually drink three or four cups a day. The great question so okay. So ultra shred. My boys is on the planet's right. There buddy right there. It's amazing okay. So this is how i use alter shrimp. I only take one. I don't take an only needed to take one says one beggie cops. Let's it. I take one so on my workout days. I take fifteen to twenty minutes before my workout with with metabolic blast my combination metabolic glasses my pre workout. And then i take all tra- shred that is my one two combo not as like it doesn't matter what type of workout i do whether it's muscle building whether it's fat burning. It doesn't matter. It's alter shred and meta meta metabolic blast because minimum glasses energy create energy also metabolic and of course this is a metabolic energy fat-burner so too i'm telling you is amazing. You're gonna sweat like crazy but you're gonna feel great. I'm going to get any workout so fifteen to twenty minutes before the workout on my non workout days i will take one susan. Wake up wake up so this is actually on. Wake up shower. Go downstairs take myles shred and clean so after after clean so takes about a half hour then. I have bulletproof coffee. That's my next thing. The coffee come upstairs. Do my other routine where i read my bible i- gratitude. I meditate in the network. And that's literally every single day. So that's how i do. Ultra shut in fact all my work days. I'll take shred morning to sometimes sometimes sometimes sometimes not always but sometimes shows so. That's how i would do it. Just start with one a day though just one a day and after a couple of weeks when your body gets used to it you can do one every morning and then add the other one Just before you work out on your as you'll only have one days you'll have to but only uses for two three months and then just come off like because your body's going to get used to your body's leading eases going to have no effect so you gotta you gotta you gotta come off of it for a month and go back on it. You know. it's a cycle. Ultra ultra short. Is your body. Our bodies are very smart and also just one prototype when it comes to coffee should be drinking bulletproof coffee everyone in this program. If you drink coffee you gotta switch. Because it's it's it's not only. Do you have great energy. See here not only do do you. Not crash but you also have healthy fats in there so. Mcat grass fed butter. So we're getting the cholesterol that we need for thrown its metabolic because mcat stands for medium chain triglycerides. There's long chain medium. Chain long chain takes a long time for it to get digested so it takes your body slower to metabolize it medium chain because shorter wise tabloids.

She says angela is her workout inspiration. We work out together almost every day. It's the one thing we get together consistently recently. She signed up for the twenty. Eight day slimmed-down primarily to get nutritional guidance. We didn't like having two separate workout schedules. It just didn't work. I thought about signing her up for women strength but then we'd be on separate workout. Plans again is our way to get her nutritional guidance she can use while continuing to work with meat in forty eight. We are willing to pay for it before you won't have to pay for the mine working on that right now. Coach faye has. She's got a master's in nutrition. he's also becoming a She's in med school right now. They've become an naturopathic doctor. She knows her stuff when it comes to nutrition but that being said i am creating a nutrition women's nutrition program based on the men's nutrition program. Because what i found is that. I use my sister-in-law. You guys have known this story of use her as my guinea pig for the last five months i believe announcement five months literate. She was at her woods end. If i needed to have somebody to to use us on it would be my sister-in-law. She's fifty one years old. She used to be an amazing shave at the time but for three years she she just literally. Everything stopped for her. She was gaining weight. She gained like thirty pounds. Everything she tried you know no carbs. You know intermittent fasting all these different types of workouts. Like she tried everything and it was. It was weighing on her mentally. In fact she just gave up and thought okay. This is it this is just me on. This is my body. my body's never gonna change and a half to have to deal with it and for someone who's been super active all her life contra someone who her job also. At that time she was in a car for the day so she didn't really move around so it wait on her and and she was she was she was she was getting nutritional advice. From even kito She tried everything except she tried everything and she was getting official buys from from bodybuilder trains bodybuilders woman shades whiter but she's also like physique so she's very smart. I took her aside and i said okay. I knew what was happening. I knew because she wasn't eating carbs. And i know about the hormonal things that happened with women to that. Her metabolism completely shut down. I also knew that the workouts that she was doing were not designed for the body that she has she had a big big shipley. Here's the thing you would think she's big ball right. You would say you're big box bigger so my my wife's sister so they're tall women. They're like call them. Vikings right there just and so you a day. She's big boat so you would think okay while you're big boned. And she's doing a left's and you know crawford style workouts and i'm like dude. You're doing the wrong workouts. Like your body doesn't need more muscle. You're just you're is. You're filling your body up you're loaded. You're not eating card so your metabolism slows down. So what i did is. I put her on our diet. Our nutrition plant literally. I told you eat three meals. A day starts cars five proteins bicycles with every single meal every day three times a day. That's it tons of water and you're going do the body weight workouts. I gave her some higher intensity bodyweight workouts. Only five months later she literally. She lost thirty pounds to the stick like late. She is she looks so healthy. She's so happy like she's a happy she's ever been she's always hungry. She's always metabolising liquor metabolism cake day because it took took about a month and a half and metabolism just kicked in and just barely sucks falling off and now she gets to do all the work she likes to do and still stay. Lean because she's eating cars fastball team. Vegetables all hormonal right. And she's getting rid of all the crops. She didn't eat any crap she it took her awhile to to accept the carbs. We're going to help her but once soon as she started it was just like wow like. A lot of her friends are jealous. Oh you euro skinny now right me. I'm like i'm on cloud nine. She looks absolutely amazing. Even i think even to eat them. Hawaii jealous too because my wife has been like a leader and now charlotte's leaner than she is so i think she's a medium now and he's also be large like always large extra large now she's medium. When i think i think i think san so the bottom line is your wife will also be privy to the so. I am going to be working on this in the next couple of weeks before the christmas my goal is to have this nutrition plan ready. And then i'll just send it over to you and then she can use it and it's literally going to be the same as what you're doing. They just her plates. Not going to have a ton of as much food as yours. But i do want to say that. I know that my sister charlotte she is she said to me. A minimum of hungary a wake-up hungry. I never used the wakeup hungry hungry. Eat my metabolism story. Like i have to put more food on my plate so as to keep my metabolism going just to keep up. And that's you guys. That's all of you guys when you eat healthy like that. Don't eat any any other junk like. She literally didn't need any other junk until her birthday. Unless you need any other junk until christmas. Because she knows how she feels when she eats like you guys do so shorter yes adopt more or less story has definitely leisure life on it. And hopefully maybe we can use a testimonial to if she gets results which you will so all sorted this so you both can workout together. So i wouldn't put on women strangest use. The same workouts doesn't matter everyone uses in workouts. You guys see edgeley in them and you can eat the exactly exactly. You can eat the exact same food so the perfect. Yes way all right. Good things coming down. The pipeline always got leonardo debiopharm senior. What's your opinion on a person going to their primary care. Physician in order boost their testosterone levels for as always better to boost your testosterone. Naturally on your own. You agree question man. So leonardo di balli m senior. You're you must be new. So welcome to the brotherhood Okay so in this program. This program is designed to help men naturally into levels because our number one enemy is to awesome replacement therapy. That's our number one enemy. That's the one thing we never want to have to resort because it completely destroys your body it completely destroys your hormones once you start onto docile replacement therapy your natural testosterone completely shuts off so there's no production zero production and the longer your audit the like longer it's gonna take for your testosterone when you come off of it to even get one hundred so that's number one and the side effects of it are just brutal us number one or two even though it's your testosterone it's not natural testosterone in order for you to naturally boost us when you have to have a lifestyle so what all you're doing is masking it. You're not even doing the things that are going to help you lose weight. Get healthy like all of the things that was programmed promises you you have to do. Those in order to get healthy and boost to of just getting talk to social injections or pills or rubs or whatever. Is this masking everything. You're still going to have a big valley. You're still going to be unhealthy. You're still gonna all of the things that you have right now. Just use a sauce levels are gonna go up and now your does only to a certain point right the loony goal to a certain point with with trt. 'cause i know and that's the end. The final thing is you're paying paint your slave to it you're paying and you've got to pay for the rest of your life at and you still not going to be happy with with your with your health and your body and and everything else because you haven't learned how to naturally to social so you don't ever need to do that so that's what this program is all about. It's a lifestyle so you need to have nutrition. Have you need to have a workout recovery. Sleep like all those things together. Each one of those things won't work. But everything in unison will work and the reason why i tell you this is because we've had many men in many we've had made this program come in who were on sossamon placement therapy but because of some big reason financial or just whatever they could they couldn't keep up with what happens level plummet like two hundred. We want eight fifty so there to sasa levels will plummet to under one hundred so then there and when you're to saas novels about low you can barely get up you can barely get. I know one person specifically a close friend of mine who was on to saas place in therapy who's also levels went down under a one hundred and he could like he literally. I can barely move and he was an active person. And i'm like man because you you to awesome. You're not even producing every so it's gonna take a long time for us to get him back but there's also been other guys at four hundred stop does levels go down back down because we stopped at g. levels i'm gonna go back down and then now are up to six. I'm sure that person's about seven or seven seven hundred. At least there's one person and i'm not going to pull his name but there's one person that i know we've had this on this thing before where he showed us that he was at four hundred came down when he started the program because of course he came off now higher than it was what he was on to saas replacement. Therapy so so That's that's the other thing. The other thing is this program. One hundred percent will increase your testosterone levels. Not even question time and time again. Let me use tony. Young for instance. Boy tony came in the program that he was at about two hundred two thousand nineteen when he came in right. Obviously his doctors wanted to. Trt wash he did not want to do to your back. I think. I think. I think i dr was like let me see what what happens with this new program. So now he's got five hundred so he's doubled. Six months doubled so five hundred eight fifty best shameless life. Six pack apps feeling great goes back to his doctor doctor campbell. Even how the hell did you double your sauce and levels was program. This program like good. Keep doing what you're doing because you don't wanna go onto your t's just the cash grab for most. Most doctors doctors will tell you that you need it and you can't get it from other things we'll have somebody else who takes me and said my doctor's telling me that you can't just boost your saucer own through nutrition and and you can't you can't and not only did he say about his assistance added. The nurse said it. Of course they said that. Because it's a it's so much money in their pocket and but also to to defend the doctors because we have. We have dr dionne. podcast sometimes. Sometimes dr your their patients so they want you to be healthy. They wanted to be healthy. And they don't think you're gonna do the natural things ninety nine percent of the people don't do. Oh yeah got high cholesterol okay. Well eat healthy exercise. Come back three months later. You're closer towards the eat healthy and exercise. All you know this happened and this happened so most people don't do it so there's like you know now they don't even they're just like here. Take this take this. take this. 'cause you're not going to do what you're supposed to be doing. You guys are different. You guys do what you're supposed to do and you you you you you you you crush through our enemy killer enemy has no chance in. This program has no chance zero chance. So definitely and your and your doctor depending on what type of doctor they are a prime especially primary care for your primary care. Physician has no clue to stop throwing. Okay they have no. They're just a gp man. They know a little bit of everything. They're not a hormone specialist. So they they. They're just they're literally just going on was all their other physician buddies doing. It's easy money to saucer. Replacement super i get two three four hundred bucks a month. Whatever tossed dice nice right. You don't need a man you you need. It's gonna take time. You have to get to saas. Obviously you just did. I'm assuming you did and we're gonna get a check every three months and you're going to see it slowly going to go up. Sometimes the world faster than the other depending on how much work you put on but absolutely not in this program. Trt's the enemy one hundred percent program work at and here's the lesson. I have told people not to go into saucer replacement therapy for the reason i just told you. And they've gone onto sossamon replacement therapy and then they'd come back office. Awesome place maccabee to tell me. I should listen to you man. 'cause now my disaster that sixty and i have no money to pay my doctor and i don't know what to do. It's right here. So it's it's it's a no brainer. It's a no-brainer. Don't need them. You don't need yes programs way cheaper than not and it works better in its natural expanded. Lalas needles needles. I you know what i would put you know what i would put. I would put my my ten best offers against any other guy on testosterone. Could him up against each other. Trt workouts like like like like you know what i mean like like fitness. Whatever guys who are naturally to saas over fifty even against younger guys who are taking. Trt anytime our top ten days and alpha will crush anybody anybody hundred all young guys we would destroy them at guide like josie even come on no question question. Jonathan terry watch komo mountain. All you guys beast your beasts alpha camps can be sick to all my god two thousand twenty two now quickly to alva. Can't twenty two is going to be insane like guys. Yeah this is going to be getting. Whose forms isn't going to be a game changer. Eight really easily get eighty one alpha games. We already on twelve people very so they're already coming so anyways lots time to build hype doing lick. We got brian curl. How do you the munchies question. Big bc baby. Brian good to see you. Angry question workers more cars brian. One hundred percent more cars. It's a simple answer so let me give you the longer. Just not too long but a longer so the reason. Why you're having munchies could be a few things number one us just not. Eating enough calories was the reason. For the munchies. The disease longer. There was a cannabis gif. So he's like maclear. Those kind of munchies munchies. He has candidacy is asking for a brother. Oh okay yeah. If i were. Medicis related munchies. All can sorry my so. I didn't get that okay. I didn't see that in the question. Okay asthma comments from ryan or are we just. Yeah okay okay. Great great great question because actually this is a very good question and we need to start talking a little bit more about it because cannabis's legal it's most places in the world and it's something that helps a lot of people and you know have seattle. I'm not a can of i was never any. I never smoked. People would would through throw it out of my hand. Because i had no how i never smoked and i don't know how to smoke so they were just knock it out of my hand because they want me to my lips frigging up like do not give it anyways. A great question. My answer to that question would be you need to. We need to come up with a munshi healthy monchy snack that Soup stupid as sounds. I think we need to come up with something. Because i honestly don't ask that question. I mean you could. You could do a smoothie right. We could do a smoothie with with water a scoop and a half of chuckling pro lots of berries banana You know maybe some codes you know. Just just something that like will will will Will will say she say that. It's healthy right because usually want to go in the opposite. You wanna go salty one of those sugary rights of really make something that's kind of sugary with the lean pro and then have that as our goto whenever that time happens and you know that okay. I know that when i take whatever smoke whatever do whatever. This is definitely been the munchies. I don't wanna sabotage might results because of this thing. So that's a great question. I don't know if it's a smoothie. Or just like i i have. Berries are my thing. I that's my new thing like i'll have a bowl a massive bowl of straw raspberries blueberries and blackberries and put him in and we get it. We get all about that like At the local chinese food market chinese market because they bring in a local stuff kensington. Not not kidding right here. There's like a carl. We just go in there. We grab it. It's the best quality from like getting laws or somewhere else. And i had that all the time. And it's perfect because it's sweet right and and it's got all the antioxidants slips scott everything that we need so But i'm gonna look. I'm gonna i'm gonna. I'm gonna a couple of smoothies specifically for that specifically for that. I think it's it's important. I think it's important. So get back to you bryan curl when i love. I'm sipping on homemade beef. Broth that i made today so just bones for four bucks maryland. Water salt garlic onions. And then we just. We treat the like stuff as a soup base. I just drink the actual broth beef in their belykh at salty. It's warm it's rich at savory. It's fatty so like they're really hits. Those cravings. I won't see. I don't. I can't relate very hard for me to say. Oh yeah i know what you're talking about. I can't really do have friends. And people i see them in. You know the or. I mean it's been growing up by new guys some just not all the time i must friendless been. We'd we'd had he. He would also munching on shit. So i get it. So i am going to come up with a couple of smoothies or anyone else has has that. Ellery is like negative calories sap some peanut butter on there for some savory fatty whatever the almond butter for sure again. I just don't know that type of was an. Here's the thing when i see guys or girls. Who have the munchies. After they smoke. I see what they're eating. It's like you said saul bad. It's junk because they just it's saul mask thing needs to be junkie. What healthy not. Really overcome munchies. It's how do you handle those monchy like effective way. Yeah so good one though. It's a good good show Yeah so sounds like we need to canvas monchy guide Total probably do we. Can we parking lot that and we pull and see how many people are actually or is now. What's that i know that. In some countries it's still not legal at some stage deli on candidates. Can we aside question. Do you think we can ask who like how many users yeah. Can we get complicated. We go by like you know where it's legal and stuff but could we put a poll in the brotherhood. Say how many people use cannabis in some way yet. Are you a cannabis user. Yes now going to see what we'll talk about. This offline but i think we i again just gathering information our brothers right yet now. It's a good idea. It's just getting more widely. Used in legalized soon affected for people so very diverse. Okay next idea thanks brian. Thank you cool. we've got anthony. Bala sakhan started phase three yesterday and was wondering on my fast day. Can i have one or two protein shakes protein. Mcat oil and water during my fast. Yes so greg. Anthony also protein breaks fast. One hundred can protein. I'm does break your fast. So might first of all might vice to you. Anthony is to do just a twenty hour fast. Don't go twenty four just a twenty hour fast because it seems like you you want you need right. The other thing is this is very important for anyone listening when it comes to fasting for that one day. Twenty two twenty four hour fast the night before you eat tons of carbs gay. You have put more cars on your plate the night before fast because those cars are going to give you that energy and going to help you as you go through that next day then. The other thing that. I drink a lot during my boss was black. Copy with mcat powder because you do have say some team you have the mcat perfect so black coffee mcat and grass fed butter and you mix it up. And then you get a rocky. I think he can do that with tea as well. I believe he can do it with tea. Like green tea with. I'm not sure what it tastes like. Your the coffee though is perfect because it will suppress your appetite. Give you energy start your the burning process. Now you're burning fat. Because that's the whole point of that fast is to deploy glycogen stores and so your body now dips into the fat storage. What the night before your fast dr- eat more carbs. Put more curbs on your plate. And that way you'll have at least some satiated throughout the next day and then do the coffee but you cannot have protein. The only other thing you could average my metabolic blast which is a pre workout. Because that was made with no calories. I made that's actually made metabolic blast specifically for intimate asking because at that time was faster so metabolic glass before you workout if you are finding that you don't have enough energy for your workout but definitely we eat more carbs the night before and you can't have protein just lots of water in the coffee. Would begin to steph. Could stuff we. Dave who's a hey funke joined back in may and was part of the program but fell out of routine during the summer and want to get back on track. So what do you recommend. Start from phase one. I stopped in the middle of phase. Three i'm a smaller build. So want to put on muscle concerned about losing weight. I maintained almost healthy eating. Just been doing about forty push ups in the morning knights of south. The program by biggest battle is motivation. Yeah so okay. I got a couple of things here for you. There dave gray question dp and i definitely remember. You may birla definitely remember you. My brother day puzo are good to have you back. Cusack good to have you back. Catch number one my to you. Dave is joined the hypertrophy program. Do the ninety day program. And the reason why. I'm telling its muscle building program. It's going to be in the bonus section this weekend so you'll be able to start it on monday right if you want to. You need dumbbells though. So i'm not sure what your what your thing is because you have a smaller bill you want to put on muscle and you don't give a crap about wait. This is a this. Is the program for you man. You came back at the right time. Ripe the should reinvigorate your motivation. Because it's a brand new program. It's different stolid. Training lots laura workouts a little bit longer because it is hypertrophied training. What they're fun. They're challenging and they're gonna you're gonna you're gonna pack on some muscle. The nutrition is also just the same appreciable where does adding another meteo or a smoothie to get the calories recovery on your arrest as arrest as to so those days are specifically rest as recovery days. Before you even move that. That's where i would tell you to go. I'm i'm not even gonna tell you to go back to face rare phase one because your goal is to build muscle. So i'm gonna put you right inside program. It will be on the weekends. I'll send an email out before. I even got for you. Dave you need to go back in needs to watch the video phase one mindset but you need to watch that video and then you need to find out what you're biased because that is going to be your motivation if you don't know what your why is i'm not gonna go deep into details here because the video will tell you everything then. It's very easy for you to fall off your routine very easy summer. Winter whenever it is As easy to do that when you don't have something that you're getting healthy for whatever that is and it's not just to lose weight it's not just the you gotta go deep deep deep like you. Almost it's almost gonna make you cry. You gotta ask yourself. The question layer ten or five or six times. You gotta keep asking you. Why do what he wanted us. Ten pounds one way. You want to build muscle. I want to build muscle because you know I want to be without cable law. But why do you want to build muscle. Why i'm really skinny. And you know. Have a hard time putting on weight. Okay well why why. Why do you want to go muscle. Why do an all all whenever people always you know bullying me because i was skinny and i still have that. I'm making something update. Which is you know. I mean like you got it would be what else. What else was. We'll have kids. And you know i wanna be wherever my kid and you know. I've got a young kid who's got whatever disease. I make sure that that kid doesn't or my parents have heart disease. I don't want to have that or you know. I have a feeling that my wife may be leaving me. And i like you gotta go date man because if the times when you don't wanna work out the times when you're at work and brenda brings in the cake the time when it's summertime you your friend calls you want you to go to the pool and you're like i can just do this work out and then go to the pool. Oregon's gov cool. I fuck it all tomorrow. Let me go to the pool like that. Why is going to smack you in the face and say dude. You're doing this because of blah blah blah so. Hey hey carl albeit at the pool in an hour. I just get this workout in carl. Not drinking today man. You know i've got my health. I mean like your why has to be the guy who do this program and continues to. They went they do the y and they continue to revisit it. Because that's gonna keep you there. It's got to be but what if you did do this. The first the not. Why wasn't strong enough because there's always going to be birthday. Parties always going to be weddings was always going to be summer. Somebody's gonna happen every year. Always going to be vacations. All of those things will always happen. So you have to bulletproof yourself from that and that's your why because you can always go back to that. Why and that why we continue to change as you become better shape. Your is going to change right. It continued change. You have to have so download the minds garden. Wash that y video. Because i'm telling you it's a game changer. everyone who does it does. It's like man. Today was a tough day. Listen i'm gonna tell you someday. Eighty percent of the time. I don't want to work out. Eighty percent of the time. I dread working out. I dress unlike because i know how hard my workouts are. So i i'm not. I'm not excited to eighty percent of the time. I wanna hit with my pad. It's fun it's great and smash pats eighty one time. I don't want to do a body weight workout crazy crazy workout. You know i. I don't want to do it have to do because my value of fitness and health supersedes anything right so it supersedes anything for me. That's my you have other values the point. I'm trying to make is. I don't. I'm not excited to go and shoot four workouts videos follow along. Do they get excited about dread doing that. But there there's a why my wife or that. I need to create on good solid. Excuse me content that you guys can use. I could just go and shoot demos workouts and give it to you. What i have a why so once you have that why. That's gonna break your motivation. That's going to bring you know claude. Push it that's a. That's a good person to think about because claude push you may see him in the in the brotherhood day. I think he started seemed. You did it. Or maybe just before but clot us to go through the same the same circle every year three. Would he would start off hard hard core. 'cause he was a hard and then by summer gone and then gained thirty pounds drinking with buddies and the next year. Same thing next year. Same thing drinking every year will be the same thing. Start off the first four months and then this year it'll change. That will change. He says he just he just i know was his mindset. Or what have you. But it changed and all. Yeah it was actually. It was the one of the things you go through a mindset thing But he stopped drinking. Here's how to drink in eight months. This guy used to be big time drinker with his buddies and look at it. Look at it before after he's got an eight cock and is the greatest health and there's no looking back and saying so once you get that motivation comes from your wi. I can't motivate you anymore man. i'm doing the workouts with you. Let me send you emails every day. I'm i coach you. Every saturday sunday on a coaching call. I do ask is not much more i can do for you but i'm glad you're back and i want you to get on track. And let's do that hyper program. It's ninety days. Let's pack on muscle on muscle home. Go yeah quad His very active in the group up menu. that's us. yeah yeah yup. I can't validate your story but no killing it yet. He said he sent me. The i did a i did a highlight. He sent me this little story about his every year in the same thing and then finally he he. He just stopped drinking. You just like crazy. It's crazy tomato. Level stores yeti okay. Let's go divulge attack. Lia can i have approximately six point seven six fluid ounces of milk and three point five three ounces of cottage cheese as a source of protein in a day for lunch and dinner. So ray exact approximations you look it up. Devout greg question. Thank you for being here. Amazing okay so. Obviously i feel for you guys i really do. I feel for you. Because clamp proteins plant based proteins are not complete proteins okay. They don't mean they don't contain the sources that the adequate resources that we need nine essential amino acids that we need more bodies for metabolic processes for to start your own for everything. So you're if you're vegetarian you there's no the one thing that i just perplexes me about. People who are vegans and vegetarians is when they ask me about what are vegan vegetarian substitutes we like for protein. Or whatever i'm not. I'm not knocking you right now. A devout good question but it just if you are a shrew vegan vegetarian then you already know that answer you already know it. Is i feel very bad for you guys because you the proteins. A you have to choose from our horrendous. They're not full. They don't give you what you need. And it's the list is like this right and when you're when you're a male and it comes on the list even come see here and you want to lose weight and get healthy here. You got lentils chick. Most varieties of beans utrition used spelt. And teff. I don't even know what that is in a spot hempseed amaranth and keith. Put the list there. He was actually a car too. So it's got as opposed to carbs protein. So you can. I would use that as your car. But the bottom line is six point seven six fluid ounces of cow milk and three point five three of carter. She's not going to be a good source of protein for during the cow's milk is going to be horrible for you because that's going to cause your energy levels to increase and you're gonna find it very hard to get rid of your belly fat and you're gonna find a heart to boost your testosterone specifically if you're having cow's milk every single day like an cow's milk fat to it's not just protein and when i looked at the list of proteins. Cow's milk wasn't even are on the lists. So i would choose so for you. I would choose from the less rex. Gonna have lentils should b.'s beans nutritional now nutritional yeast. I actually put that on my on my salad. So when i have salad i put on nutritional yeast spelled and taff hempseed makino a very. You're very limited. And i'm guessing that's why you're asking me the two things lied by susie. Lentils lentils are good. Get some shade peas and beans and use those as your proteins. I feel bad. I feel bad for megan's because the food you eat are just disgusting. Really it is because because because a lot of the stuff up that that Vegans vegetarians. Because i have meetings and vegetarian. My family so. I know i will see it there. It's all processed foods and soy based so it's very weak very weakly. A like unc. Something on netflix. But don't believe the height lotto's people are steroids before they became vegans. And there's a lot of things that are You know you only say what you want to be said but anyways my point is you know i don't support it specifically. I don't support it. What i know that people do it for moral reasons or cultural reasons. Or what have you but if you are vegan vegetarian you should already know what your proteins are. If you're just jumping on the begin in vegetarian bandwagon for some reason than get get the hell off the wagon. Get the hell off that wagon. Because you're you're you're exa- petagine your health and your hormones to jump on a wagon. When could be eating healthy. Good great foods that supports your hormones in your health and your fat loss and your muscle growth and because you should already know what the proteins are. You should already have anyway. I'm done. I i gave you hear those are and good luck. Good luck for short could look solid kindo We've got bubba palmer. I have severe tendinitis around the elbow. I'm supposed to be starting on monday. But the pain is saying something different. I don't wanna be a couch potato until it heals. Are there any exercises that you can recommend for me. Great question baba and a sorry for that that Although just just i just want to make a general announcement that is a super important that the longer from the beginning of this program forever. We focus on warming up before every workout and stretching after doing the yoga mobility on the recovery day because the mobility is going to help with our joints because you move through the phases. The workouts get tougher in other workouts. Get tougher and you're moving in different ranges of motion. Nothing you can't handle it you can but you really have to make sure that our joints in our tendons are healthy so we don't get tennis elbow or whatever now sometimes that has line the workout and has more to do with. How were you know. Maybe you know we're on the computer or or or maybe. We played tennis and actually got tennis. I used to play tennis. Oh sometimes from doing that. That's that movement that you continue to do. That's how you get. Or what have you. And it's very difficult to do anything. Upper body when you have tennis elbow tendinitis which is a condition of inflammation so that's inflammation in attendance and the connective tissues. Around the alamo. That's what it is so one of the big things you have to get the inflammation down the best way to get inflation down by not doing anything. That's not because the more you work out more inflammation you're gonna have so you know you could do things like speed walking on you can do some more you can do body workout squats lunges you can do i know that i'm michael nico nico haro from finland on in this program shot to go. He had tennis elbow Civil and he sprints he was doing sprints for a while and the reason why had for a while because he was still working out. So what happens is when you when you have an injury right. Your body needs to fend as much nutrients to that injury so that it heals quickly. But if you continue to take up your body's nutrients or or metabolic processes of whatever doing other things or eating shitty foods that cause inflammation or eating. Sugar than your this is going to prolong proline. And they go much longer if you just rest completely. That's going to be quick faster to heal. I have back issues right now and the reason why that this is not healing because i continue to work continues. She videos so i continued you things that i know that man. I need to just like literally not do anything for a week. So can get rid of the side. I could use some back routines and whatever the coast so the bottom line is if you had like a bike like the pelivan like a coaching call on sunday. But i did a bass club for peleton. Get money for. But i told everyone of might something this year. Because we're going to. This is the perfect thing you can. I'd like a ten minute finisher or whatever. Let me whenever you mean or if you get injured you can still use something right anyways if you have. Some type of a bike have access. That's great sprints on the bike to keep com going you can do. You can always do apps and you can do lower by yourself like squats and lunges and that sort of thing. I don't have a specific program for that but Yeah you could do some lower body stuff. The other thing is you want to supplement with omega threes and turmeric root and omega threes. So again as as we get older guys and as you go through this program supplements are going to be even more important because the the bar continues to rise in regards to the workouts and we and you know we just wanna make sure that we're healthy mobility rest warm-ups stretching nutrition but supplementation is going to be that final piece of the puzzle. So i'm just about to just literally. After i get off this call. I'm going to have a. I'm actually going to create. I'm creating a giant alpha joint. Health is what is called alpha joint support. I think it's called was. I'm going to be creating a joint alpha a joint right there. Okay so yes. I'm going to be creating joint supplements with nine. So i did. I don't wanna see. What are the best joint supplements like the best ingredients having a joint supplements. This has a nine so like through health line. I'll go the health line because it's all always supported by research and so i do deep. I've got this. Supplement has ultra so when you take that supplement which is going to becoming. I'm just literally ordering it right now after we get off this call with tumor omega three dude right now. I close the joint supplements that. Get that stack right now. Which is i believe. It was his tour again omega threes and may something else and then add one man and it's going to be something that you can continue to use as well all right there you have it. I'll close link below carlos guerrero. Hey browse just got into ice surgery. Today can be off exercise for a month just walking. Do you recommend to start from phase. One after the doctor approved physical activity. Welcome cardinals and congratulations on i. Surgery and now. You're gonna steve austin the six million dollar man you'll be able to see because you probably don't remember i. You sound the steve austin and you and you can look through the item. How to magnify loss from behind loss wrestler. No by oh no biotic man. Do you know who's madness. Six million okay. Well that was a show that we all used to watch. Carlos remembers the christmas. You'll remember eric. E. remembers it all champion. Okay so it was like that was the best show. Because he was a bonding man you got into got into a. He went up in space. Spacecraft got destroyed. He got destroyed but they put them together. We can rebuild him. We have the technology. Make the first by on mcmahon. Steve austin will be that mad better than he was before better stronger faster and he could shock and he can see. Let's karolos cardinals. Carlos is in the new six million dollar man. So we're putting together a grads so carlos. My advice usually start off. I think where you left off. So whatever oecd left off at so teaming phase three by now. Okay so i would. I would just go back to when you after that month. I would just go back to face and try to battle through. I wouldn't go back to phase one phase. Three is going to be tough for you. I would just go up and start a face and keep going for sure for sure what the walking is going to be. Good keep walk in. Nutrition is going to be so important carlos so important. Don't keep your nutrition one hundred percent during these times. Get your apps. Keep doing apps. Ads ads ads every day. Go to go to the bona section perfect ads do the perfect abs program in the bonus section of the of the. I think it's in the membership as well. But if you're an odd person go to the under the welcome under the home we scroll down you can go to ab workouts and then perfect apps do that one. It's a it's a twenty eight day program you have six ab workouts every single week. So do those that that way you feel like you're doing something you're only six seven minutes but it's cumulative cumulative right the walking that you do and the absolute you do together we'll keep you at least together right so that the time you get back face read six avs because you nutrition was on point. You've been walking so sometimes sometimes speed walks slowly and the news feed walk slowly. You'll be fine. Carlos it'd be fine and keep coming back to the brotherhood and keep looking and getting inspiration from the people who are working out. Could you get that inspiration in take with you and do whatever you can gonna keep. You gonna make your recovery better. Some people think a log. If i can't workout is going to go in there and going to get I'm going to get frustrated but don't look at it that way looking the other way. There's another coin. The coin as i'm going to go in there and i'm gonna talk to my brothers. I'm gonna have my paktia. My hikes take picture after my walk. And my you know what i mean. Like how amazing. Would it be. Carlos if i go into the brotherhood and i see a picture carlos was on doing ab workouts. Like there's no excuse after that it's like do six million dollar man for kin ab crutch crooked abs. So i'm not letting you off the hook carlos you gotta get in there. You're you're going to go on the walks and you're going to post pictures with the patch. You're you're a new six million dollar. Carl's garnero inspiring other men's division. Absolutely one like it. I like it. I had there. It is okay. let's say it. Hopefully it's like a laser surgery not like a them. I want to see the pashto curl. So if you don't have a is make one for him just for me just for me. As opposed to patch in surge. Lisa surgery probably probably but it can be something else pulls the picture of the of the patch. Please please get a patch. Post the batch. Okay let's go with chris. Miguel phase nine muscle building phase. Is it okay to have the advance created by itself. I just ran out of your lean pro on the way and is it. Okay if i take it later in the day rather than the morning hundred percent. So great question chris to see you okay. Two things number one. You're going to take advanced create team on the number one team in the world or as i'm concerned because it's got fenugreek in this one in another one that has it and we have the perfect combination of and creatine monohydrate. You're gonna take this after your workout. One hundred twenty workout days scoop in water. Shake it up ticket. Perfect done on your non workout days. Take it whenever you want. Doesn't matter just just take just. Don't do not not take it. Just take it in the morning later on the day whenever you want on your workout days take it after the workout. That's important to is saying. He forgot to take creatine. This morning can take in the evening. Yes eric yes. So great questionnaire could see body once you're in the house Yes take when you're if you forget take retain the morning or you have like a time taking you for take. Eight doesn't matter what time of the degree team on your non workout days even on your workout days. But i don't think you'll forget it criterion on your workout. 'cause you're working out so we top of mind and you take it after the work of the reason why you take it after your workout schedule quickly is because chritine is great for recovery right and our muscles are building during recovery and sleep. So that's when you wanna take it now. Critique also a performance supplement so for me. When i work out i'm taking not ingredient right now but what i do work out if i'm ingredient. I will do it after training by then. I'll take it before my time to help with my performance because then i'm not trying to build muscle just need performance enhancer but everyone in this program should be taking it after sunset. Easy hurt us. Bogarde if i cut my spinach and kale in olive oil. Does that count as the healthy fat. First of all the best team in the history of the world purdis card. What sounds fancy war partisans in the house yes awesome. Yes amazing incredible love spinach and kale a combination in all unbelievable so purdis put olive oil light butter on everything so specifically my salads. Because i don't like dry salad. There's nothing worse to me than dry salad. So when i make a salad. I'm going to be about that to you. Make a salad with my spinach. I put my tomatoes tomato. Sold in there i'll put cucumber. I'll put finicky and then by drought and i'll put strawberries. Because i like like. I went to burst of juices. That come from the strawberries. And then i drown it all and then i put and then i put the nutritional yeast than i. Mix it up. Oh it's a so good so yeah definitely definitely definitely audible for sure. Good fats Okay we've got tyrone s mitchell for others. Which way do. I go my first two weeks phase. One was awesome turning point for me. I finished p. one week to on a high with the saturday bonus workout. I even improve my average sleep time from five hours per night to six and a half hours per night however this week i missed my p. One w three workouts all. I did this week from monday to thursday with sleep coverage of seven hours forty. Three minutes per night didn't even ride my bike. Today's friday and i feel like i'm ready to take take over the next week. Do i go back and complete the week three workouts that i didn't do or should i move forward and begin the week. Four workouts had a bump in the road so early in the program. My mind just felt like yeah. No listen no problem. No problem tyrone. I liked that you listen to your body that now. I don't like the fact that you two weeks and then you listened to your buying but that's okay. I like the fact old that you're ready. That's on the world. So here's my here's a couple things number one. I just wanna make sure that you went through the mind mindset in your strong y so regularly could that same y link or maybe grab it right here i got. I got the one who for that. I told puzo. Let let let's give that to to tyrone. Because i want to make sure that you have a strong enough why and you focus on that mindset because sometimes you so sometimes what happens is you may feel like you needed that that rest right and you you use came to the fact that you need a rest. I don't know what's going on here. So i don't. I don't know why some a lot of times what happens is if we don't have a strong enough. Why will always succumb to the easy way out. Which is You know. I'm not feeling this. We antica week off. Well no you're gonna fight through that week because you're building you're building resilience. You're gonna fight through the next week because you wanna finish this phase without stopping and then you're gonna rest and sure it's going to be a struggle in you gonna fight through it and then you're gonna rest out one week. I don't know what's going on in your life so that could be something else but we need to build resilience and and the way to do that is what on ties. Only want to throw in the towel or times where you don't wanna like work out or what. I'm not feeling and i think my then. Then all these crazy excuses. Yeah you got mindful but did you really did you need at this point and could you not just two more weeks. Just wait through it. The reason why. I'm saying this now. I'm trying to nip it nip it in the bud. I don't want this to be an ongoing an ongoing Pattern because maybe you're maybe you don't think so maybe you're like i'm and funk i'm ready i'm just needed that one week but what happens after the two weeks from now down the road when you're when your buying feels broke in and you're just like oh man you're gonna keep taking the weeks off. We can't have that in this program. You wanna be successful. You have to stay consistent and you want to build that alpha alpha out if you want become alpha male that alpha alpha looking for like just just the key credo that we have you need to get through an push through the time when you don't wanna work out or you think you need time off right. Listen look biz. Days when i look at my recovery and it's literally had a ten and i still work out. My recovery is at a ten one hundred which means i'm barely even moving. But i still do because i have to get now may not be great workout. But after i'm done i'm like completely exhausted. I give my nutrition. When i did it i did it. It's another checkmark it's another. It's another another Thing in my arm. Another shield that builds his armor is bulletproof alfa armor that's what we need the bulletproof mindset so i just want. I'm not saying you're doing this. What if it's only been two weeks nearly taking a week off early in this program it's after three phases a three months. Then you take week off because by that time you're is ready but i think it's so important that a i love that you focusing on sleep. That's huge because it is baby steps so the sleep things huge the workouts you got you dropped talk. We're going to get back in your face. Just go to week for. This is good week four. Let's not push back. I'm going to keep pushing four week for the next time i wanted to. Golf is after week. Three three at the end of bay serie. Then you can take we we to battle through every you gotta because there's always gonna be times when you don't feel like working out of your mind not right or seeing around the your your work get scheduled guest talk like i'm i'm going to do in seventeen days now but i went after. I'm done. this isolated jump on that bike and the new body weight workout and my my recovery is great. I know there's no if ands or buts about it. It has to be done so and i'm very like i'm tired and i'm drained mentally simple it but it's not even a question have to do it. I may be going through the motions. What i have to do it so i just again i just and the other thing is i. I even didn't even ride my bike. Which leads me to believe something you like to do. So we can't we can't i. Just don't want us to be powder that's all so the next time you take a week off is going to be the end of face. Ray you've got. You've got a battle through these times when it's tough because they're all will always be tough times in your life but you but health comes number one program and i don't want say this program is. Your health is number one so workouts recovery. Maybe maybe because you're not doing the recovery stucco yoga stuff on off-days that can help relax your mind and just get you into a flow right So yeah man. I think i think that's that's that's where we're gonna go. That's where we're gonna go.
