Jacksonville County Sheriff's Office arrested forty five year old software engineer Michael Dunn outside his Satellite Beach Home. Some two and a half hours from the gate gas station in Jacksonville following the shooting. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office had responded to the scene and scoured the Dodge Durango and the gas station parking lot for evidence. Police found nine bullet holes in the Durango and kill an evidence technician with the sheriff's Office said Kibble said. Three bullets hit the front passenger door and were stopped by the doors. Interior Metal Wall narrowly missing Tevin Thompson. A bullet through. The truck's rear window passed through the car and struck the driver's side Sun visor. Next Tommy. Storms his head and then hit the front window. Kipah would later testify in court that he found several items including his cell phone a- basketball and a bottle of hair gel in the car but did not find a weapon or anything remotely resembling a weapon. He said the boys who survived were lucky to be alive. Given how narrowly? The bullets missed them during the shooting. A bystander to this shooting had jotted down the license plate number of the car that had fired on the boys and within a few hours police had identified. The man believed to be responsible as Michael. John cleese canvas for local businesses to see if they had video footage of the shooting but to their dismay no one including the gate. Gas Station had captured any video. There was no video evidence that could show police. What may have led to the fatal shooting? Leland who hadn't stopped shaking and was visibly emotional as well as Kevin and Tommy were taken from the gas station that night to the Jacksonville. Sheriff's Office Homicide Unit. There were put in separate rooms and interviewed separately between eleven thirty PM and twelve. Am The following morning. The police showed the boys of photo spread of various suspects including Michael Dunn. In hopes that the boys would be able to identify the man who had shot them. All three identified Michael Dunn as the killer Michael Dunn and his fiancee. Rhonda Rower had been Jacksonville over Thanksgiving for his son. Christopher's wedding they had arrived in town on Thanksgiving with their seven month. Old French bulldog Charlie in tow and checked into the Deerfield Sheridan near Jacksonville. The wedding was the Friday after Thanksgiving in Orange Park. A suburb of Jacksonville done told Divall County detectives in a recorded interview. He and Rondo went to the ceremony. Sated the reception until about seven PM and left to return to their hotel rooms so they could let charlie out for a bathroom break on the way back. The couple stopped at a gate gas station on sell side Boulevard and done park next to a Red Durango because it was the closest parking spot to the convenience store after they had parked done said the Durango began to play loud music. Rhonda would into the store to buy a bottle of white wine in some potato chips leaving done in the car he told. Investigators at the music was so unbearably loud that he rolled down his window and politely asks the boys in the Durang goes back seat to turn the music down. Well him embarrassed to say this but Got Out she's on the store in there like Suv next to US and And The music starts and I roll down my window and I asked them nicely demand morale. Thank you guys. Mind TURNING THAT DOWN. And they started off. I was like thank you Cordial cordial he said he ruled his window back up and everything was fine until he started hearing the guy in the back seat who was later identified is Jordan Davis swearing at him. He said Jordan was agitated and told his friend in the front seat to turn the music back up. And so the music started blasting again. He said he didn't know if they were singing. Or what but he could then hear them say kill him. He said he rolled down his window again and said. Excuse me are you talking about me? He said Jordan was swearing at him and then pulled out what looked like a shotgun threatened him and then opened the car door so done pulled out his own gun from the glove box and fired. The Durango then started driving away done. Said he was still scared and so he shot about four more times as the Durango was fleeing. Now I am. I still feel safe. I thought you know there is another car. I I didn't know I mean I'm in a strange town. Strange area just had my wife threaten. The love of my life is one store and she doesn't know if she can't find her she and I have to go. So where did you go after I started doing right to the Hotel Bentley display? Those are waiting for another time calming. He said he went over this a million times and what he should have done was to put the car in reverse but it was fighter flight. He said and he didn't think there was any time for flight. At that moment I was going to get shot. He said after the shooting Rhonda came out of the store and the two left. The scene for their hotel done told detectives that they parked outside the hotel's front entrance and went straight to their room. Done took his puppy for a walk outside the hotel while Rhonda remained inside the room. Neither called nine one one but they did order a pizza to be delivered to the hotel done said he learned on. Tv later that night that a teenager had been killed during the shooting the next morning after sleeping very little done said he and Rhonda checked out of the Hotel at eight am and drove home to Satellite Beach when detectives pressed him on why he left Jacksonville without calling nine. One one done said he didn't want to bring quote this shit storm down in Jacksonville in wanted to get Rhonda and the puppies settled at home before things get out of Control Kit it to detectives that he never should've left the scene but said he loved because he was still afraid for his life right off. The Bat police were sceptical about done. Story had the teenagers really threatened the forty five year old man. Why did done flee after the shooting instead of calling nine one one if he was so threatened and afraid and if done said he was threatened by a gun then why had no weapon been recovered from either the vehicle or the gas station. Police told done there hadn't been weapon in Tommy's storms. His vehicle in response done asked the detectives if there had been a stick or anything like that he could have confused with a gun. No the detective said the officers were also confused by something else done was saying he said Jordan was starting to get out of the Durango when he pulled out his gun and fired yet. By the time you come back and start shooting. He's still on the truck coming out. I think he was doing was running back again. I know but that's all care. He is sitting in the backseat of that truck. When he is hit goes right through the door. Three bullets went through that door. Okay he wasn't. He wasn't hit standing outside the drug. I I and I know I sound through the door. Probably him out of door. You're shooting for computers. Yeah latches Kinda learn. I went to do what I was doing when I came back I'm firing latches the door now when when I got my gun on the event what you what you mean by the last one of the doors of he's been okay so he's stepping out. Yes and then I and you go to reach the by the time you come back and come up just blazing. Somehow he's still drug for me. I'm not staff with the whole thing that it was already wasn't getting out with a truck absolutely you once. The officers also explained that none of the teenagers had a history of violence and none of the witnesses heard any kind of altercation or dispute between done and the boys done told the detectives said in his mind. The boys had a weapon and he assumed they wanted to hurt him. When you go to confrontational those guys have Amanda. If there was a gun truck they wouldn't shut. You had to get out. Bayer shot right through from the. It was like he was shooting from your car. Because you guys your your directly able when you hire you are found with the front passenger and we can figure no thing from work emerged on Jacksonville. People don't get out of the car to be seen. They shouldn't so one goes through. She writes on it. I. I'm getting out of his car. Where does close to ten? He was getting out of his car out here after repeatedly told me that he was gonNA kill me. Done continued to tell. Police said he feared for his life and was acting in Self-defense. But by the end of the nearly hour long interview done was charged with first degree murder and three counts of second degree attempted murder. All Michael Dunn said in reaction to his impending arrest was that sucks. Shortly after Jordan. Davis's murder. His parents filed a wrongful death and defamation civil lawsuit against Michael Dunn arguing that he caused them damage when he claimed their son was violent. Done initially did not agree to a settlement but the two parties eventually settled for an undisclosed amount in January two thousand fourteen before the start of Dunn's Criminal Trial Dunn's trial loomed large in the United States and drew comparisons to the trial of George Zimmerman. Who was acquitted in two thousand thirteen of all charges after shooting and killing seventeen year? Old Trayvon Martin in Sanford Florida like Martin Staff Davis killing and duns trial launched civil rights protests across the nation and brought a renewed focus to the issue of racial profiling. The cases did have many similarities both featured a seventeen year old boy who was black shot by a man who was white within the same year. The shootings came at a time when the black lives matter. Movement was gaining momentum and Florida's controversial stand. Your ground law was drawing increased scrutiny. The law code defied in two thousand five allows people to use lethal force and claim self defense if they have a reasonable belief that their lives are threatened regardless of whether the threat is real or perceived Michael Dunn went to trial in February two thousand fourteen to secure a first degree murder conviction. The State of Florida was tasked with proving that done had acted with malice when he shot. Jordan Davis Assistant State Attorney. John Guy said in his opening statement that done shot at the boys because he was angry and that he intended to Kill Them. He said the boys were simply out enjoying themselves when nine bullets came crashing through their vehicle killing Jordan Davis lying in the backseat with his head and we would Brunson's unbeknownst to any of them. Three of those bullets at found their target one of them at entered is right leg one of them at entered his left leg and one of them had entered his right side limor after both of his loans and shredded is in the end. The blood that for seventeen years running so naturally through Jordan Davis Baynes arteries was pouring out of prosecutor. Guys opening statement focused on Dunn's reaction to the shooting and his behavior in its aftermath. He described for the jury. How done drove back to his hotel room and walked his dog. He then ordered a pizza and made himself a big rum and coke. Prosecutor guys said before watching a movie. He fell asleep around the same time that an emergency room doctor pronounced Jordan Davis dead rather than moving his car. Going into the store because the music was bothering him. Prosecutor guys said done rolled down his window and chose to engage in altercation. He urged the jury to find the inconsistencies and done story. He said Jordan Davis who wasn't alive to tell his side of the story in court didn't want to be told what to listen to or it would volume by anyone let alone a total stranger. He said after Davis and done exchanged words. The next thing anyone heard were the quote three incredibly loud bangs that killed Jordan Davis Corey Strom. Dunn's defense attorney repeatedly told the jury that done felt threatened by Jordan Davis Tevin Thompson Leland. Brunson and Tommy starnes for the first time in his life. He has to defend himself sterling done. He had never used his gun before that night. And the evidence is going to show the only person that I was Jordan Davis and his words to Michael Donahoe. Rana fucking kill you. I kill you right now. See that's in your guy didn't tell you the facts are gonNA come out to a stroller said that. Jordan Davis antagonized done into shooting him and that the teenager was solely responsible for escalating. The situation he argued that there was no visible sign of aggression or anger from Dun. Dun hadn't gotten out of his vehicle hadn't banged on his steering wheel and heading yelled at the boys before the shooting on the other hand he said Jordan Davis had gotten out of the car had sworn at done and engaged his client in an altercation. Stroller also argued that police botched the investigation and thought it was a typical Jacksonville murder. Not a case of self-defense. Jacksonville is the murder capital of Florida. He said and police responded to the shooting like it was every other incident and not a clear case of self defense. He said there was a lot of time for the teenagers. To get rid of the weapon. Done had seen Jordan Davis holding the gestation. Parking lot was big enough that some people hadn't even heard the shooting he said and police didn't search the gas station. Parking Lot. The bushes the roof of the gas station the dumpsters or the nearby lakes. The parking lot wasn't even secured. It was open to the public shortly after the investigation sterling said and evidence could have been hidden destroyed or simply overlooked. The jury was tasked with stepping into Michael Dunn's shoes and determining whether he had acted reasonably prior to the shooting. They needed to decide whether he had acted with malice and intended to kill the boys or whether his life really had been threatened and the shooting was justified. The state's first witness was Jordan's girlfriend Leah Harris as mentioned before. Olivia worked at the town center mall at urban outfitters and saw Jordan. Shortly before his death he had come to visit her that night and seemed to be in good spirits and happy. She said nothing about his demeanor suggested he was agitated or aggressive or looking for a fight. Elliot's testimony was brief on cross examination. Defense Attorney Cory Stroller of Jordan had ever owned a gun. Elliot's said no he hadn't he asked her of Jordan had ever carried a knife. No Elia said she had never known him to carry a knife sterling. Finish the cross-examination by asking how long she had been dating Jordan. He wanted to undermine her testimony and show that she didn't really know Jordan that well and therefore could not reliably say if he had owned a gun or carried a knife. She responded that they had only been together for sixty days. Before the shooting. After Leah's testimony the state called several witnesses to the stand who had actually seen the shooting at the gate gestation that night. The first up was Steve Smith. A general contractor who built apartment complexes and had been at the gas station that night to buy a fountain. Drink Smith said he had frequented the gas station to pick up snacks and drinks for his crew but on the night of November Twenty Third Thousand Twelve. It felt a little different prosecutor. Angela Corey who is one of three prosecutors working. The trial asked Smith if he had noticed a Red Dodge Durango that night Smith said he had and that he had avoided parking next to it because there was music playing loudly and he didn't want to deal with it. He pulled into another parking spot to avoid the nuisance. He said there were plenty of open spots at the gas station so it wasn't a problem. Smith testified that he got out of his truck and went inside the convenience store he joked to the cashier about how loud the music was and said. I wish they turned it up. It's my favorite song. The cashier laughed and Smith left the store to return to his vehicle on his way out. Smith saw the Durango was still blasting music but didn't notice anything else and testified that he didn't see anyone in the truck talking to anyone in the nearby cars. Nobody was outside of the cars. He said Smith past behind Dunn's Volkswagen Jetta at the time of the shooting. He testified that he saw no weapons. Coming out of the window of the Durango but did hear a man say you're not GonNa talk to me that way in an angry voice before he saw a pistol coming out of the JETTAS window. When I heard someone yell at me turned around us. All a pistol in the front seat between the stern will go compartment area. That was a big silver chrome millimeter or forty five dollars. A large caliber pistol. Tell the jurors how you could see that. Turn around and it was. It was right here. The other pistol and were you. What portion of the Black Jetta were you looking through to be able to observe what you just described passengers window and was there anyone that you noticed in the passenger seat or in the back seat of the Black Jetta normal what happened? Then the gun was pulled around shots. Were fired at the Red Ranga. Was there someone firing those shots just fan? Who did you notice that to be the driver? After witnessing the shooting Smith said a woman came out of the convenience store and the man in the Volkswagen Jetta said get in. Let's go and the car drove away. The state's next witness was Andrew Williams. Who was driving past the gestation on South Side Boulevard? When the shooting occurred Williams had been driving his wife and two teenagers they knew from their church. Williams and his wife were chaperoning the two teens on their first date they like Jordan Davis and his friends were on their way to the Avenues Mall. They had planned to get some dinner and then see a movie at Tinseltown Theater Williams heard the shooting while he was driving and pulled into the gate gas station to see if he could help. He testified that he saw a black car. Leave the parking lot quickly. He said he never saw the four boys. In the Red Durango which had returned to the gate gas station discard? Any weapons are toss anything from their car. She told prosecutors. The young men were crying and yelling. He's not moving. He's not moving so he rushed over to help. He took Jordan's pulse while the boys friends held him and continued to cry. The Gate Gas Station Cashier Maria. Grimes testified next and she said she had been helping. Dunn's Fiancee Rhonda Rower at the time of the shooting. Grimes heard the gunshots and exclaimed. He's shooting he shooting get down but the woman had walked out of the store leaving her chips and white wine and the counter. Grimes described seeing the same thing that the other witnesses had a man shooting a silver pistol pointing out of a black Volkswagen. Jetta but the prosecution was hoping that a man named Shawn Adkins would be their most essential witness in the case. Atkins was a homeless man. Who had been living in his car and who happened to have parked at the gas station when the shooting happened. Atkins PROVED TO BE AN UNLIKELY STAR. Witness for the prosecution when he testified. He was actually incarcerated at the Florida State Penitentiary and serving a seven-year sentence for stealing from his grandmother and her friend. In fact in a twist of irony his criminal case was prosecuted by the same attorneys working. Dunn's case Atkins was escorted into the courtroom by security shackled and in his prison uniform. He told the jury that he was living in his truck on November. Twenty third two thousand twelve and had parked at the gate gas station so that his girlfriend could use the bathroom. He testified that he heard two or three pops that sounded like firecrackers. He looked over just in time to witness a man with gray hair. Shoot a gun towards the Red Durango from a small black sedan. A minute later a woman came out of the gas station. Store got into the man's car and drove off. Atkins said he got out of his car and as he watched the black sedan drive away wrote down the license plate number. How did the shooter drive off fast? They drove off the same directions to join. Go a little bit of speed. Did you stay in your car after you had memorized his license? Tag Number of for a second just to make sure he drove Now into the gas station right. What did you do when you got inside the gate gestation? I gave the first cows. Our first cashier is seen the license plate number Atkinson. His girlfriend left the gas station immediately after the shooting because he had violated his probation five days earlier. He knew that if he waited for police to arrive on the scene he would immediately be arrested as it were. Atkins was still arrested for violating his probation the next day and was arrested again months later for crimes that would land him in prison prosecutor. Angela Corey would later call atkins the hero of the case for his quick thinking after the shooting. She said he willingly worked with prosecutors and requested nothing in return. Typically people who are incarcerated give prosecutors information in return for short prison sentences but Atkins never requested that if he hadn't gotten that license tag. I'm not sure where this case would have gone to be honest with you. She said in a press conference but that license tag allowed police to work through the night they found out owned that vehicle great news. I have discovered my favorite subscription box.

The second day of Michael Dunn's trial was marked by the emotional testimony of the three friends. Jordan Davis had been out with the night. He was killed when police arrived unseen. They saw Tevin Thompson. Leland Brunson and Tommy storms in the parking lot of the gas station cradling. Jordan's body Leland. Brunson was sobbing uncontrollably. Police but they separated the boys from Jordan while paramedics worked to revive him. The boys were eventually all taken to police headquarters to be interviewed. When they calm down. Kevin Thomson was the first to testify. He told prosecutors that he had met Jordan through mutual friends and they quickly became close on the night of the murder. Tommy Jordan and Leland pick seven up at his house and they went to the town center mall. Tevin said he wasn't quite sure what time they left them all but they stopped at the gas station so that Tommy could get cigarettes and gum on the way to the avenues mall. The other. Three boys stayed in the car. He said and were playing music while they waited. Prosecutors asked heaven if he could identify the man who had parked next to them after. Tommy went into the gas station store and tavern identified Michael Dunn as the gray haired man sitting in the courtroom wearing a black sweater over a white button. Tevin said he heard done. Say I can't hear myself think and ask them to turn down the music. Kevin was sitting in the during goes passenger seat and complied. He said Jordan then said to him. Fuck that turned the music back up from the back seat. Kevin said Jordan was clearly talking to him not Michael Dunn and turned the music back up to a piece. His friend Tevin said he heard Jordan talk with John. Likely in response to the man but he said he never heard his friend yell or threaten the defendant in any way. Did you ever see anything? And Jordan Davis HIS HANDS. While he was talking to the defendant. Moso did you see or hear Jordan Davis Attempt to get out of the Durango at any point. Did you ever see or hear Leland? Brunson threaten the defendant anyway in. Did you threaten the defendant? That Way Mosa Tevin said at some point. Tummy got back in the car. Shortly after that Michael Dunn fired into the car prompting the boys to flee recalling those tense moments for the jury Tevin said he remembered Tummy calling. Everyone's name and Jordan gasping for breath in response. Dunn's Attorney Corey Strila Grilled Heaven and how loud the music was in the car. He tried to poke holes in the three boys testimonies by asking questions that implied that the music was so loud that they couldn't possibly have heard Jordan threatened done or an altercation. Is it possible? That Jordan Davis threaten Mr Dinan. You didn't hear it. Also I sustain. Are there things that he was saying and yelling? That you couldn't hear because the music was loud. Same Leland Brunson. He's sitting right there behind you and you couldn't hear him talk either and isn't it true that you never heard. Mr Deng say anything. You can only see him what you say. Mouth the words through a window and his windows. What is tinted right and your work and you even told me that he could never even see inside the caucus their tinted correct. So at that point he just knows he's talking to a car full of people right. Sustain Leland Brunson's testimony was very similar to Evans Leland had been best friends with Jordan and had known him the longest of all three boys he told prosecutors that he never heard his friend threatened. Michael Dunn and he had never seen his friend with the Weapon Leland said Jordan was tired of people telling him what to do and is set as much in the car he said Jordan. Didn't yell at done until the forty five year old man was already screaming at the boys about disrespecting him. Leland also said that Jordan never used profanity while speaking with John Tommy. Storms is testimony went the longest of the three boys. He was after all the person sitting closest to Michael Dean when the shooting occurred. Tommy was inside the gas station store for whatever the preamble to the shooting was. But when the gun went off Tommy's first reaction he said was to get away and he threw the car into reverse. The gunshots continued as they drove away. Tell me get out of the Durango to check to make sure his vehicle was okay and didn't have any severe damage. He then described realizing that Jordan had been shot. When you call Jordan Davis's name. Did He respond author? Did you look back into the back seat? When Jordan Davis didn't respond and how is Jordan Davis Position? I guess Leila Against Against Leland like leaning on him user was Jordan Davis. Making any sounds at that time but was that was. Jordan Davis moving in any way no sir. He ran back to the driver's side and drove back to the gate gas station. His best chance of getting his friend help. Tommy was on Felony Probation for a third degree felony burglary and had a seven PM curfew effect. That drew scrutiny from Corey. Stola sterler questioned whether Tommy was telling the truth about where he was the night. Jordan was killed questioning how long it took them to get from the first mall to the gas station and wondered if Tommy was hiding facts and times to avoid issues with his probation. Tommy denied doing so. Sterler also questioned Tommy's character by asking him about a song he had written produced and released called Jordan Davis in the days after the murder. Sterling asked didn't you release this song and hopes you'd make money off of his death. No Tommy responded but you would only hung out with Jordan Davis twice including the day of the shooting. Stroller pressed on. Yes that's correct. Tommy replied sterling again tried to plant the seed of doubt that Tommy seven and Leland were actually witnesses to an altercation started by Jordan with Michael. Done all three boys had maintained throughout their testimony that done became angry with them and Jordan had not done anything to provoke him. Did Mr Don do anything to make you notice him? Stroller asked no. Tommy said he wasn't banging on the steering wheel and screaming. Sterler asked no Tommy responded sterling. Wanted to make the case that done had remained calm and collected during his interactions with the boys and that he hadn't shot. Jordan Davis in a fit of rage but rather had genuinely feared for his life. Rhonda Rower Michael Dunstan say was the prosecution's first witness on the third day of the trial. Her testimony was highly anticipated by the prosecution as she was able to paint a picture of what happened. And how Michael Dunn had behaved in the shootings aftermath. Runa looked visibly nervous and her voice shook. Is she began her testimony. She sniffles loudly before she started and frequently had to pause to dry her eyes and regain her composure prosecutor Erin Wolfson started her questioning by asking Rhonda if she knew Michael Dunn Yes. She said through tears he is her fiance and they had known each other for six years. Rondo told the court that she and done lived in satellite beach a small community on Florida's Atlantic coast. The two had gone to Jacksonville for done son's wedding and started their day with breakfast. At Mimi's cafe. They left the hotel to go to the wedding between three and three fifteen pm she told prosecutors the wedding was in Orange Park and done drove them in his black Volkswagen. Jetta for the twenty five minute journey at a reception directly after the wedding. Ronda said she drank a glass of red wine and three rum and cokes. She also had a glass of champagne during the toast. Prosecutors asked how many drinks done had and said she thought he had three or four rum and cokes at the reception. He may have had a sip of champagne. She said but didn't drink the whole glass because he didn't like champagne. The couple left the wedding around seven PM before the reception was over because they wanted to get back to their seven month old puppy who was created in their hotel room. Once again done drove prosecutors asked if Rhonda was worried about Michael. Driving as he had been drinking. She said she didn't think twice and that he didn't appear to be under the influence on their way to the hotel. They stopped at the gate gas station because they hadn't eaten much that day and wanted some snacks to take back to their hotel room. Ronda said they perked really close to a red truck and noticed that even with all the car windows up she could hear music coming from the inside. She couldn't make out the lyrics but she could hear the bass she said. It wasn't so loud though. She said that their car was rattling or anything like that after they had parked but before she got out of the car. Ronda said she remembered done saying I hate that thug music. She kissed her fiance took twenty dollars from his wallet and went into the store. She went inside and looked for a bottle of wine and CAPE COD potato chips. She was walking to the cash register when she heard the shots. Where were you when you first heard? Pop Pop high was walking to the register. Kind of goes slake along and then the cash cash registers rate here. So I was kind of walking up. The aisle in the clerk was standing there. Were you at all paying attention to what was going on outside? No why wasn't what did you do when you first heard gunshots. I said what was that. And where are you speaking of the cashier in front of you and so it was? What did you hear? Next when I heard another pup pup pup and what did you do after you heard the second set of will? I didn't do anything. The cashiers said the guy Evening has the gun and I turned around to. She was talking about Mr. Our when you turned around. What did you see Mike Looking? Note his driver's door. In what position was the driver's door? The door we could use the body profile the profile of the defendant of that time. Es Wake could you describe for during what position he was in? It was like he was facing out the door. Could you see what he was doing with his hands knowing I didn't see his hands. Could you see whether or not he was crouched down at all knowing not. She left the chips and wine at the register when she got outside done yelled at her to get back in the car but she said she froze done asked her again and she walked over to the car just in time to see him putting the gun back into the glove compartment. As soon as she was inside. The Car Ronda said done reversed and drove out of the gas stations main exit. He was driving quickly. She said and they went straight back to the hotel without calling nine one one when they got back to the hotel. Rhonda changed her clothes and done took the puppy outside to go to the bathroom. Ronda said she went to sit by the elevators. There was a little lounge area as she figured. The police would be there soon. She was waiting for them. When done returned from walking the dog they sat together in the lounge for a little while they eventually returned to the hotel room and ordered a pizza because Rhonda's stomach didn't feel well and done thought she should eat something he made them both strong rum and cokes to have with their dinner they went to bed and Ronda said she woke up around seven. Am when she awoke done was in the bathroom? The television was on. She saw on the news that a teenager had been killed at the gate gas station that night and her stomach turned. She told done she wanted to go home. She said she thought she was going to be arrested. Two and wanted to get their puppy taken care of before the police came Rhonda and done were supposed to go to Saint Augustine a historic city. Not far from Jacksonville that night with done son but they canceled the trip and instead when straight home they left their hotel by eight. Am without eating breakfast or getting a cup of coffee. Done drove them the two and a half hours. It took to get home and they arrived in satellite beach by ten thirty back in Satellite Beach. Rhonda got a phone call from a Jacksonville number. She handed the phone to done because she thought it might be his son. Instead it was a homicide detective Rhonda was also a key witness for the defense. She knew Meikeljohn it better than anyone during cross examination. Corey stroller was relatively gentle with her. He asked if she had been upset by what had happened. Ronda said she was very upset and very shocked about the shooting. He asked if when they returned home she and done had made an effort to hide the block. Volkswagen Jetta there was undeniably linked to the shooting. She said Dome done had parked car next to the hotel entrance while they were there and then he parked the car in front of their home when they returned. Sterler was curious about duns tone at the gate gas station when he said I hate that thug music. Rhonda's said he hadn't acted angry or had the dashboard and he certainly hadn't threatened anyone in her presence. During the prosecution questioning of Rhonda Prosecutor Erin Wolfson had asked about how much alcohol Rhonda and done had consumed at the wedding. Sterling's questions sought to contextualized. How many drinks they had do you and Mr Dunn Have Alcoholic Beverages? When you go to dinner he asked yes. Ronn decide they also drink at home? And when they are at friends homes. She told him she reiterated for Stroller. That done did not seem impaired from the alcohol at all at the time of the shooting stroke also pressed Rhonda on the details of the evening. After the shooting he had run to clarify done had ordered a pizza and why they watched a movie. Ronda said they did both things to help settle her stomach and get her to relax. Stroller also asked Rhonda about whether they were rushing to flee Jacksonville the morning after the shooting or if they were trying to get organized before dealing with the police. Rhonda's said they left to get themselves and their dogs settled before they inevitably questioned by the police. The prosecution's final witnesses included the medical examiner. Who DID JORDAN DAVIS AUTOPSY? Following the shooting Stacy's Simon's a forensic pathologist and the county medical examiner said that Jordan's body was brought to them hours. After he died he had no drugs or alcohol in his system. According to a toxicology report she said and he was killed by multiple gunshot wounds. Simon's testified that Jordan had likely been killed while seated given the nature of his injuries. And the information she received from law enforcement about the bullet holes in the Durango. This testimony conflicted with defense's assertion that Jordan had been standing up and pointing a shotgun at done before he was killed. Simon's also said that Jordan was five feet eleven inches tall and weighed a hundred and forty five pounds with clothes shoes and while wrapped in the sheet used by the medical examiner to transport bodies. She said she believed he. Likely way less than one hundred and forty five pounds at the time of his death. This piece of evidence was interesting. In light of the fact that done was six feet four inches tall. And we'd more than two hundred pounds by those standards. Prosecutors argued done shouldn't have been afraid of a teenage boy who was significantly smaller than he was. The prosecution rested their case on day. Three after Simmons's testimony the defense is first witnesses. Were Michael Dunn's friends on the Fourth Day of the trial? They all said that done was a stand up guy who is always polite and calm in their presence. Many of these friends had met done through his hobby flying airplanes and we're also friends with his parents. Randy Berry was one such friend. He testified that he met done in the year. Two Thousand and they became close spending holidays together and forming a tight knit group of friends. I always thought he was a gentleman. He said Beverly Berry Randy Berry's wife also testified that she had never observed anything other than a calm demeanor. She said the news of Dunn's arrest had shocked their community. Dunne's friends testimony was very brief and so was prosecutor. Angela Corey's cross examinations. She questioned how well the berries really new done were. They better friends with his parents or with him. Prosecutor Corey asked Beverly Berry if they had ever played rap music at their gatherings. When done was present no she said had beverly ever seen done interact with black teenagers. No she said. Christopher done Michael's son testified that his father hadn't been angry at the wedding and there wasn't any animosity between his father. Or any of the other wedding guests. Starla asked Christopher if he had seen his father pounding drinks and Christopher said he hadn't in fact Christopher said his father seemed to be in a really good mood that night Dunn took the stand on the fifth day of the trial for several hours telling his side of the story he had been jailed since his arrest November. Twenty third two thousand twelve but had been in constant communication with Rhonda and his family sending them letters decrying the media's portrayal of him and the prosecution's depiction of his alleged crimes. His testimony would be key for his case as it would be the only chance the jury had to hear about what he said he felt an experienced before the shooting done repeated his fiancee. Rhonda Roure had told the Court and said they left the wedding early to let out there puppy on their way back to the hotel done said. They stopped at the gas station and he parked closest to the convenience stores door next to a Durango. Yes done said there were other parking spots available but they were further away and he wanted to be close to the doors. Since Rondo was only running in for a few items done said he couldn't recall if the music was blasting from the Durango when he parked next to it but it quickly became an issue. He said he had asked people to turn down their music before he was heard of hearing in his right ear which causes his left ear to overcompensate he said the music was so loud. He was physically uncomfortable. He said he rolled down his window. And ask the boys to turn it down. I said can you turn it down? Please the boys turn the music off and done said thank you. The front windows of the truck were tinted enrolled up so he couldn't see who was inside but the back windows were down and he could see Jordan Davis. How soon after that did anything else happen? Other than that. Kind of moments of silence just talked about Very soon after I start hearing things like F him F that in some now saying Abbey where they actually saying a word or or you pair. I'm paraphrasing okay. Was it in a nice tone? Was what will now. It was mean-spirited. You know just like annoyed if you will and once you read these comments did you look back over react at all. Not even a little bit. Did you roll your window down and say anything? No did not make you angry. Note did not. Did You Punch your steering wheel. No did you throw your phone now. Not No reaction at all. Okay at that point after you don't react at all. Does it. Escalate well the music came back on the music comeback on same or even allow now is probably a little bit less loud than it was but it came back on and was still that based on just absolutely done told sterling that when the music was turned on again he was going to just deal with it but then he said he started to feel threatened and again did you turn yellow the guys in the SUV. When they turn the music on the second time. I I I wasn't gonNA ask compared to more favors again. Okay and did you still hear somebody yelling and cursing? At that time. I did now now ugly. I I heard you know something something cracker just did you actually hear certain words are gathering paraphrase. I heard some things. Okay and without going those specific terms you gotTa knew what they were saying to. Yes I did now again. You're not showing any reaction at this point to things escalate out of the person yelling you in the SUV. Yeah because you know when when this enough that there was no music playing Hear him now there's Something base and I can hear him. His voice is elevating he. Can you hear it? Because he's yelling so loud it's over. It's over that thumping noise okay and this yelling now. Include threats of violence against you well after hearing the something something cracker in this Matt I hear I should kill that motherfucker How many times did you hear that? I heard hired him. Say That and I wasn't sure if that's what I heard. Are you trying to listen a little? Now I'm listening closely like when I'm sitting there. I'm kind of thinking about the Nice Day we had. I'm thinking about San obviously tomorrow but when this I should kill that. Motherfucker comes through now. I'm paying attention to what they're saying. That kinda got it. Yes in an even more elevated voice. I hear I should fucking kill that motherfucker. Now he's screaming. There's no there's no mistake of what he said. That is what he said do you. That look over see. Is Somebody talking to you? I did. In fact I'm to the point where I think it's time to to try to deescalate this. Okay and what do you mean by that to try to calm things down? He said he lowered his car window and asked them. Are you talking about me when he was saying this? He said he saw Tommy storms out of the corner of his eye walking back to the car but he was really looking at the guy sitting in the rear passenger seat. Who We now know was Jordan Davis. He said he could clearly see into the vehicle and he saw two young men with quote menacing expressions. And why did you ask that as a question if they were talking about you while they're saying they wanted to kill the her and I wanted to know I was that Okay and if they did say yes. And you said you wanted to de-escalated what were your intentions of talking to that back passenger while I wanted to Make it clear that I said thank you I mean I i. I didn't mean any respect by asking the turn the music down. He said he didn't escalate the conversation. But that Jordan responded to him and said yes. I am talking to you He he reached forward and pick something up and slammed it against the door. Okay when you said he reached forward. Did he reach? He reached down okay down towards his feet down towards I mean I could see. His shoulders moves conceal his hands. But you can imagine. Somebody's shoulders move forward that they're reaching down all right. Could you see actually lean down towards the floor? That are incident. He said he was feeling threatened but he didn't reach for his firearm. Or try to get away at this point. He said he then frozen fear when he saw the barrel of a gun sticking out above the during goes window were Jordan was sitting. He said he knows what his shotgun looks like because he used to shoot sporting clays pretty regularly with his father still. He said he didn't reach for his firearm. At that point he He put he slammed Something against the door and Yeah I'M GONNA fucking kill you because when I asked him. Are you talking about me? He was just saying I should kill them ever and I asked him. Are you talking about me? I didn't know what it was that first. But when he says I'M GONNA fucking kill you I look. I'm looking at a barrel. He's he's showing me a gun. Needs threatened me. He said he was stunned and feared for his life. He wasn't just threatened. He was threatened with death. He said he was also afraid that Rhonda might be caught in the crossfire and be injured. It wasn't just my life. He told Stroller but also hers at that moment. Sterler ass done what changed for him. Why did things escalate further? What prompted done to pull out. His pistol didn't react to this I'm just like processing what's going on in the the CY young man in the back seat in the back passenger seat opens his door. You know like he cracked it. He just topped it open. Could you hear the door unhedged? Yes and I signed move just a little bit okay. And at that point. Because you've already said you were fear of your life when he said you're dead bitch with a gun right well. He said he was gonNA kill me but after he opened the door then he looked at me and said you're dead bitch and we're you still sitting there in shock. This I was still in fear for your life I became even more fearful at that point. Okay at that point. What did you believe was about to happen to you? I thought I was going to be killed. He said still. He didn't pull out his gun. Then he said he saw Jordan. Get Out of the car After the The continued threat of your debt. Now the door opens and this young man gets out and as his head clears the window frame. He says this shit's going down now. Done admitted that he didn't see Jordan with a gun as he got out of the car but said he felt it was still a clear and present danger. He reached for his pistol in the car's glove compartment stripped off the holster cocked. The gun in the window in pointed in the direction of his alleged attacker but went through. My mind is That this was a clear and present danger. And I said you're not gonNA kill me you son of a bitch. Michael Dunn testified that he does not recall how many times he fired. But according to law enforcement testimony and records nine shots were fired that night. My hearing kind of dimmed I sentences just kind of everything. Faded in the background and it was focused on the target in pulling the trigger without target of being. Just just vidor shooting at the door. Let's for the threat was coming from That was the last place I saw my attacker in. That was about as far back as I could get where my position done told. Stra that after the shooting he was shaking like a leaf but was trying to be stoic and process would have just happened at the same time. He said he was worried that the young men might come back or send others after him. When Renzo came out of the store Dunn said he told her he had acted out of self defense and that they weren't in trouble with the local police. We might be in trouble with the local gangsters but not the police. He said he told her done. Drove the couple back to the hotel and said they spent the night exactly as Rhonda had described earlier in the trial. He walked the dog order a pizza and poured them drink so they could try and relax unlike Rhonda Dunn said he couldn't fall asleep until five. Am He was having trouble processing the shooting and felt extremely shaken up? He watched the news all night and used his phone to look up information about the shooting when he found out that someone had been killed at the gas station. He said he went to the bathroom sick to his stomach. He was in the bathroom trying to clean himself up when Rhonda woke up and saw the news for herself done said. Rondo was an emotional wreck when she found out about Jordan Davis's death but he tried to soothe her by saying he'd done nothing wrong. I knew I had done nothing wrong but it was hard to get her to understand. It done said Sterler asks done if he believed that morning that he was going to be accused of the murder absolutely not he replied stroller then asked questions about duns pilot license was it active. Did he have a passport on hand did he? F- cash. Did he have access to a plane? Did he contact airlines? Did he contact a car? Rental did he. By a bus pass done said no to all the questions which were meant to insinuate that he hadn't tried to flee and that he was confident that he had acted in self defense when done got home to settle a beach around ten thirty A. M. He said he contacted his friend and neighbor. Who worked for federal law enforcement? He walked for about three minutes to his friend's house and told him what had happened in Jacksonville. He was shortly after that called by the Jacksonville police and he told them that he was going to the Brevard County sheriff's Office to be questioned. He didn't take his gun with them and didn't try to get out of it. He said but instead officers showed up at duns home and he was instructed to come out of the House with his shirt off and hands up. He told the court that he was considered by law enforcement to be a high risk arrest because he had left the scene of the shooting without calling. Nine one one. He didn't understand that he told Stroller but complied with police orders and didn't try to resist or flee. He was put inside a police car and taken to the sheriff's Office to be interviewed. Done said he spoke to the two detectives who interviewed him freely as he had nothing to hide. He said he was cooperative. And wasn't trying to be evasive or disrespectful but that the officers were combative with him. He said he didn't know at the time that they had a warrant for his arrest. Assistant State's attorney. John Guy handled the examination as expected. It was the most lengthy cross examination during the trial. Prosecutor guys started by asking done why Rhonda was so shaken up in scared by Dunn's actions if he had acted out of self defense and she knew that Shirley she would have been calm and collected. He also questioned Dunn's testimony about how he said. He was trying to deescalate the situation by rolling down his window and asking if the boys were talking about him. The Truth Sir. When you roll down your window instead are you talking about me? You were challenging is seventeen year old bore. I don't believe so I put the inflection on me and the truth is he took your challenge. Didn't he said Yeah I'm talking to you. He didn't say that he said Yeah. I'm GONNA fucking kill. You answered it. You were being disrespected by mouthed teenager orangey now I was being threatened threatening to kill somebody is a disrespect. That is just crazy. Prosecutor Guide then focused on when they got back to the hotel. He has what they were waiting for in the elevator lounge after the shooting done said he was waiting for the Durango to come back. And retaliate prosecutor guy asks done how many times he told Rhonda that. The boys had a gun done said numerous times. According to Rhonda's testimony and deposition transcripts there was no mention anywhere that done had told her that Jordan had a gun but during his testimony done was firm. He had mentioned it several times to her. He said she probably forgot because she had gotten a lot of things wrong in her testimony including that he had called the boys. Music Thug Music. That's how What Ron Characterize? I don't recall saying you don't recall saying I hate that thug music night. If I were to set anything I would call a rap crap. Thug music is an internment so miserable. Got that long. I wasn't gonNA SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT BUT I don't recall saying that and that's not a term use okay. But she wasn't upset we over the Gate Station Right Employment Realizes Lon trauma afterwards and She could have imagined. You could imagine a gun anything's possible it's not likely like I said Between his threats and actions reinforcing what my eyes retelling during cross examination done also implied that Jordan may have actually shot at him. I something that prosecutor guy seemed to be incredulous about miss that he didn't shoot you right. He didn't shoot extra. You know If you listen to the video there is some kind of pop. I don't know if that was Him or somebody else but hold on. Are you telling this jury? That Jordan Davis is discharge. The firearm match you. I have no knowledge of let he dinner. Didn't do you know shotgun. Sounds like right? Sure sure it's not quite as no no. That's a boom. It's a distinct that's bone okay. So we would hurt his shotgun and the pop. I'm talking to you. It sounds a little weak. I'm not sure what the heck that is. But it's not a shotgun going no so you were not shot. Well I don't know I just telling you what I heard on the audio you guys will hear prosecutor guy asks done to think back to the moments before the shooting. When he said he heard Jordan threatened him he asked done if his window was up during this exchange done said yes. His windows had been rolled up but he could hear the boys over the loud music prosecutor. Guy Asked don again. How was he able to hear everything with his windows? Up and the music playing so loudly it was causing him. Physical Discomfort done admitted that he couldn't hear everything but that he could tell Jordan was irate also on direct done had testified that he yelled. You're not going to kill me. You son of a bitch before. He fired his gun. Prosecutor guy asked him about this. Have you're not going to kill me. You saw a badge a train right. And you're telling this jury didn't even raise your voice today and said that Moore A to myself. I mean I'm inside the car. Getting my My pistol so I'm not saying to him. I'm saying this is the thing that I'm saying loud. Okay did you say wow this I did and you don't think this got her. I hoping that you will be a shared. That's that's part of any sub defenses. You WanNA yellen kind like stunning attack. Gill you're not gonNA kill me some. He's still didn't mar thankfully. No prosecutor guy also asked done why he got out of his car and fired more shots at the Durango as it was fleeing if he was so afraid of being killed done said he got out and went behind the fleeing vehicle because he believed it made him less vulnerable to attack given that people don't normally drive forward and shoot backwards. Done then blamed tunnel vision on the fact that he was still pulling the trigger as the. Durango drove away. He said he believed he. Only shot three rounds but knows was actually six prosecutor guide corrected done and said he fired nine shots not six and definitely not three. Everybody in the car was a thug. Or GANGSTER RIGHT. After the way they behave yes. They did their way behave. Well the the one man in particular but his neighbor seem to have been in agreement right there with them. The Guy Artsy actually trying to visit Iran right. He was the reasonable driver. He didn't threaten you in any way urine. He did not prosecutor guy also questioned Dunn's actions after the shooting and why he decided to leave done said he thought it was best to leave the area for his safety. Why didn't he call the police? He felt scared and threatened gassed. Done said he knew it sounded crazy but he couldn't tell prosecutor guy what he was thinking. At the time he was in a panic he said dunst testimony marked the end of the defense's witnesses but there was one more piece of crucial testimony loved the prosecution called Rhonda. Roure DUNN'S FIANCEE. Back to the stand to answer a few more questions. Before the end of the trial their particular interest was with whether done had ever told her that Jordan had a gun. Did done ever tell Ronda that he saw a weapon in the Durango did done ever mention that. He had seen something like a stick. Poking out of the window here was her answer. There is no mention of a stack. No there's no mention of a shotgun. There is no mention of a barrel. No there's no mention of a lead pipe nickel back in the hotel rooms roure that same night the defendant ever tell you that. He saw the boys with the firearm know. Did he ever tell you that? He saw the boys with a weapon on the two hour. Drive back to provide the following morning. Did the defendant ever tell you that? He's all gun in. Suv New two hour. Drive that he ever tell you he saw weapon of any kind and that s you know after the closing arguments Judge Russell. Healey who presided over. The case spent an hour giving the jury their instructions and then sent them off to deliberate unfortunately fourteen. After thirty hours of deliberations the jury returned with their verdict. Michael Dunn was guilty on three counts of attempted murder but the jury could not come to an agreement on whether he was guilty of first degree murder for the killing of Jordan Davis. Ten Jurors believed done to be guilty of first degree murder charge. While to jers held out the shooting was justified. Judge Healey declared a mistrial on the murder charge. What of the jurors told. Abc News Nightline after the trial that to jurors had believed done to be justified in the shooting from the very beginning quote. That was the thing that those two folks believed he was frightened and there was no other option for him. In regards to Mr Davis a life was taken there is no longer a Jordan Davis and there was only one reason why that is. The boy was shot and killed for reasons. That should not have happened. Prosecutors announced immediately after the trial that they would retry Michael Dunn on the first degree murder charge prosecutor. Angela Corey said that because judge. Healey ruled mistrial. On the first degree charge they could really tried done solely on that single charge. She also dismissed questions from reporters about whether done may have been overcharged for his crimes. As his lawyer and other critics of the prosecution believed the state moved forward with done second trial on September. Twenty fifth two thousand fourteen after similar testimony but a new jury done was found guilty on the first degree murder charge and sentenced to life in prison without parole plus ninety extra years for the three attempted murder convictions. Done files an appeal to overturn his sentence. With the First District Court in Florida on the grounds that he had ineffective counsel and that his lawyer should have hired an audio expert to check the audio on surveillance tapes. That they said would have shown Jordan Davis firing a gun at done before the fatal shooting. The appeal was considered by a panel of three judges and was rejected on November seventeenth. Two Thousand Sixteen at the end of the first trial Jordan. Davis's families spoke with media and supporters to share their grief and their hope that justice would eventually be served for their sons murder. Ronald Davis Jordan's father described along of four hundred fifty day journey to the verdict and said he did not accept laws that allowed children to be collateral damage. He said Jordan was a good kid and he wanted the laws to protect Jordan. Lucy Macbeth Jordan's mother said she was grateful for some closure. She said she and her family prayed for done. Who would be spending his life behind bars? One way or another make bath. Who had been working as a flight attendant? At the time of her son's death used her grief to fight for change. After Jordan's death she joined moms demand action for gun cents in America a group that advocates for sensible gun laws in the wake of the two thousand Twelve Sandy Hook elementary school shooting. She also joined mothers of the movement. A group of African American women whose children have been killed by gun violence group. She was active in defeating Florida legislation. That would expand campus carry laws in the state then in two thousand eighteen lucy. Macbeth ran for the United States.

So come listen to surprisingly brilliant on the iheartradio. App Apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcasts. This is Kelly Henderson. And you're listening to at home on velvets edge in the midst of this corona virus pandemic. It's important for all of us to know that we are all in this together and there is not one person who isn't being affected by this in this series. I'm talking to celebrities and artists about what they are doing. And how they're staying positive during this isolation period it's a look into the day in the life and I think you guys will be surprised at just how similar their days and emotions look to the rest of the world this week. I'm talking to my fellow. Louisianan Country Music Artists Jordan Davis. Jordan's career took off with his number one platinum hit singles. You up and he's continuing to kill it on the charts now with slow dance in the parking lot. We talked about everything from having a new baby at home during isolation to his love of Tiger King on Net flicks. Here's our conversation and go tigers. Okay so my fellow Louisienne. This is so fun to talk to another. Lsu Person Does Hager's. I said to my mom the other day that the good news for us even if this fall football season gets canceled at least we can just replay last season and we have a good season to replay rolls over so. Come back to back champions. That's see I love this mentality. This is a great yes. So without sports and touring happening. What kind of other stuff have you been doing to occupy occupy your time right now? I mean I own new dead. I will get a four month old at the house I've been been busy hanging with her. Which has been awesome and then also we stopped. We did start a tour at the beginning of this so pretty much. Put us on the road pretty early in January and then You know we were gone pretty much every weekend leading up until they shut us down so right Being at home now I'm actually. There was a lot of things that I've been trying to catch up on and but mainly just kind of spend time with them. You know. It's been a really busy. Not just past year really past couple of years so the downtime as as you know it's not it's not ideal but it is great to get a little more time with them. Yeah so you're kind of just leaning into this time at home it sounds like no absolutely and I mean I really think that's the only way to go about it. You know it's a for the first couple of days. I was really bummed out now. We had some great touring setup and some fun shows that we're looking forward to but I mean it's just kind of the way the chips Phil and I realized a couple of days in that it was just like you know nothing. Good's GONNA come out of this but a sit around powder not pout about not being on the road right. Now it's Kinda family time and cannot shifting shifting gears to to write more music in in maybe you know maybe some great will come out L. Speaking of Writing Music. I saw a tweet that she put out the other day that you're trying to get a CO write with Tiger King. So this is where corona virus has led us. Have you watched that you okay? I'll watch the first episode just because it's been such I mean it's everywhere everywhere on instagram twitter. You can't escape it so I'm trying to get into it. Does it get better after the first episode. I don't I don't want to say yes. But you know it's one of those. It's it really is just so wonderfully terrible that for me that sucked me but yeah I mean if you got you know if you got a couple of hours to kill in one AWASA pointless television. We know if there's ever a time to watch a totally ridiculous show. It's right now. I would tune into the tiger cat. Okay I keep the characters. Themselves are obviously fascinating. The first episode. I just kept saying to myself. This can't be real right like these are not real people. Well if you keep watching. You'll continue to say that I did that. You and your wife are going to be hosting a happy hour on instagram. I keep saying making the joke that my happy hours. Keep getting earlier and earlier in the day. But what kind of things are you guys going to be talking about? So we just released a new song A Song I wrote not long after a MEK kristen so it's GonNa be just Kinda Kinda based around that time but also you know. I think we're both kinda going. Stir crazy and we we've Both take any type of of kind of interaction frightened now. So you know log on for an hour and just kinda hang out. Answer some questions and Canada's tell people what we're doing You know some things. We're working on as far as just being stuck at home and live with a four month old During this so just kinda. Everything is going to be kind of an open book. Yeah I've seen that with a lot of artists. They're really missing the connection with the fans. Like that's something you guys are used to getting every weekend so then God we have these. Instagram lives in all these other ways to actually connect people still. Is there? Something that you and Kristen are doing each day. I mean you just mentioned connection but is there something specific that you guys do to not just so negative and bogged down. I know for me like if I'm just feeling so isolated sometimes I I can get Kinda dark. So is there something that you guys are doing to stay out of that? Think we're kind of what both folks on just Kinda like quiet. Tom Discount you know just Either reading or you know just spending some time by yourself and This counter reflecting everything not just my life and that sometimes I kind of forget about that as far as with Kristin you know being on the road in running guy I like to think that my world in my life gets busier. Then everybody's just not home and that's really nice and You know Christmas just as busy as I am different. It's just a totally different thing. So we've We both been Canada's focus on on on you know whether it be in the morning you know kind of like to get up in the morning and and spend some time on myself and Christians more towards the afternoon so it just kind of really focusing on on those things of just a just a lot. More meantime Yeah have you been surprised about any of the emotions that may have come up just? I don't think a lot of stop like that. So it's interesting to see what comes up when you actually sit still for a second of A. It's true journaling. I think one of the one of the best things you can do for for anybody to Kinda whether it be a goal or whether it be. Something's bugging you anything I think when you put put it down on paper Is it helps a lot and you know and you know the reason. Why at least for me? My main reason was like I was always too busy to do it to where now So it is Kinda cool to wake up and just open up a blank sheet of paper a Word Document and you know. Read a little bit in read a little bit expensive time yourself. This kind of types of stuff out or write himself out goals problems things you want to get better at and like you know like you said earlier everything. Everybody's running so wide open I hope that everybody does take this as the positive of it. As as may be slowing down and maybe realizing where we were running so wide open where we. We probably shouldn't have been more so that's kind of been. Some of the positives ended up taking away. Yeah I love that. What what is it like to be a new dad and look at your daughter and kind of this crazy world like has it has a. What does that feel like? What what are you thinking about for her? I mean it's it's a totally different different world than than what we grew up in. Yeah I mean just as far as you know I think for me You Know Woman Galley for both of us. You know social media in is important part of what we do. And it's in some in. There's positives of that and there's a lot of negative that oil some. Kinda just I duNno. It's GonNa be a weird weird parenting thing to learn because it's not like we can call our parents and say hey what we do you know. It's it's kind of like this is just a new kind of on the front end of this. There's no there's no roadmap for this gun so Yeah I mean. It's it's crazy to see what I can only imagine where it's GonNa be whenever whenever she can actually use ahead you know. I think it's just GonNa be a a mix of taking the good and and you know a race in a bad or or not. It's into a unfortunately that is a that is one of the one of the parts of it. Well before all this current virus of hit you were on quite a roll you had to back toback platinum number one songs. He had single singles you up and take it from me. Your current single slowly into the parking lot is top five and still climbing. This is really exciting and your debut album. Home State is out now said. Did I hear that you might have some new music coming out in May? Yeah we're We're releasing an EP of half little bit. You know it's A. It's been a batch of songs that I've been really really proud of won't to get out but you know one of the Canada. The blessing and the curse of Heaven the success of Home State in the success of the singles is we. Haven't you know well I say we it's a I haven't wanted to move on from it and there's still a lot of songs on that album that I wish we could of single older or or spent more time kind of highlighting but just the way that music going now and So we kind of held onto the record for a little while so in the meantime still riding a lot and In yeah this This EP cone out is it's it's it's got some of the. I think the best songs that I've ever written and I am I'm excited. Said get it out excited. Give SOME NEW THE FANS. I think the the main win out of this well. I'm sure after this isolation all of us are going to need some new music. I've replayed album after album after album. So we'll be good hopefully touring. We'll get back up and running soon so but without like without knowing what's next what is the ideal next thing for you. What did you say I mean obviously yeah getting back out on the road. Possible is is the priority but the author the abandoned crew. Now we've become really really close over the past three or four years of going out and playing music. I think that's one you know finding a way to take care of those guys Because it's it's just a weird time and that's something that's never really happened And I feel like there. There's sometimes the gas that can get forgotten about in this but Yeah I mean you know. I'm trying to think of kind of creative ways to to make sure they're taken care of Which is can atop on the priority list. Right now And then also just you know. Continue Underwrite With a bunch of down like this. You Know Kinda makes me. WanNa make another record which I feel like that is like you're saying you get about this. I feel like when we do. Come out of this We are GONNA have a lot of a lot of music. Jordan Davis and Tiger King. I'm waiting for it What a dream.

May 13 Hour 2 More on UNC Bears | Rockies Story Lines | Mark Johnson

"Minutes after second and final hour here on the show today. Welcome back our first advantage. Text Line is three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. We're we're continuing to navigate through what some of these leagues are going to do on both the professional and the college side of things waiting on more news to come out on the MLB side going back and forth on well now money really financially talking through with the players But on the college side. It's interesting to and on to talk with me a bit about that. Mark Johnson the voice of the Colorado Buffaloes Markelle here in what's going on with California. You're hearing a lot of that situation where they're still looking at online classes in the fall earlier than Wiki. Here Mark Emmett saying we're you know we're not gonNA if those those aren't in class or in person classes we're not gonNa have sports with those specific schools. So how does this impact our situation at this point boy? That's a great question and I think I've settled on on your show before you're gonNA have an entire university system state of California which is in Economic Dire Straits to begin with and we have heard so much in the last couple of years about cal antibiotics. Ucla and in some respects USC having all kinds of economic and financial issues athletically speaking. So now you're going to have you know whatever. The number is for those respective university. Thirty five forty thousand students taking online courses and I guarantee you no one's paying forty fifty grand a year. They got like working. And I just you know I said to you on this show on thumping about not just has led ex but economically A they say they country and institution whatever. It might be at some point in time. There's a pointed return where economically everything just falls apart. And and so I. I don't know how that's GonNa work. And does that mean then? If the vast majority of universities are going to have students on campus that they're allowed to play football or you know figure false Ford But the California schools are not. That's not gonNA go over very well so I don't think we've seen the end of this thing. I was on a conference call yesterday with some athletic officials the Aa Day and was told they feel very bullish with the word. That was used very optimistic about having college. Football this fall and Everyone else I've talked to. I've talked a lot friends in the media that that the one with a lot of people and everyone feels very good about it so I'm not sure what cow but then again. I guess. I've asked that question. I'm not sure. What California every right now? They really confused me. Yeah Well Gosh I. For some reason my brain went to California was the first one really start to. Hey we're GONNA get this players can make money off their likeness regardless of what the NC Double Ada so California's always ready to do their own thing. Right water then. There's there's in new since day one when this all began way back in March when we were lose. There's not this that doesn't make there's no logic to the moves in one state state to want institutional none of it all sound and I question yesterday with official. I said this is not to be difficult to bathgate when you're the NC double A. or a and you're dealing with set to these in different regions and different states that have different viewpoints and different plans of action. How do you possibly get everyone on the same and you know? It's it's really a perplexing puzzle. That the good news is you've got another half a month and a half the month of. May you've got June July and August before football would be here so there's plenty of time and so even selling news worth seeing today Like yesterday with California. They're still possibility. I think Maybe reversing those kind of decisions and changing the course of thanks because I just you know. Write down with with You know a hundred different people doing a hundred different directions. I'm not sure how you make any anything you'd have all out of that market and you brought up the fact you know with all these online courses are students going to be asked to pay the same. I know in your neck of the woods in boulder. You know we have students say. Hey what what the heck. I'M GONNA have to pay the same amount but I'm I mean you and I both know it's a tough thing and I'm talking to my mom's she's a first grade teacher. I know a few high school teachers and Good Luck. They kind of like good luck. But you can hold your exactly right. We can campus but things are back on the rich. Any GONNA happen people. I don't believe moms and dads out. There gotta be smarter with their dollars and if you're a college student Part of what you're paying for yet you're paying for the education but let's be real frank about it you're paying for college experience as well and you don't get forty five thousand dollars for the college experience sitting in the bedroom down the hall from Dan. Wherever you're from not work that way itself Back Down. A long term solution for this and universities are not gonna be able to survive that for any extended period of time. I I saw something here so damn ago. But at We've talked about some of the universities in America and said that There were numbers being thrown around. That one institution by this point could have lost close to a billion dollars. That's with a B for goodness sakes. That's not going on very long before. University starts shutting their doors. I don't think that's going to happen. But if you continue down that kind of path and you can play that game. Yeah we're GONNA offer long online courses but there's a reason that tuition at a power five school is about one hundred times what you pay to take online courses and so he's going to give me online courses. That's what I'm going to be paying online prices. You're exactly right you know mark. I went back to school a few years ago and finished up and I've taken some online some in person but I'll tell you you know the online versus in person. It's night and day to me at least from my personal standpoint. What you learn in person. You're focused more. You have a professor in front of you to me. It's online some of it. I can. I really appreciate but if that's what I was asked to do throughout yeah I'm GonNa feel I'm GonNa feel a little slighted them a little. A little robbed were leading. Well listen we all understood. Don't you you talking about your acquaintances? There are teachers. I teach a class We went to Online and and remote teaching all these things started where we were rescued midway delayed in into a semester. Okay so bad that we've done it and I don't think there's anybody that is is just blow them up to step forward and say criminal side or from aside. Oh that was that was just would have been sitting in front of Inspector Regardless if we're talking high school high school aged to Mike this I couldn't get into things like that. And that was kind of a consistent message Amos a special that Iraq redid for doing a science. We've got projects all these everything we cast but it's the same. It's the two out of the tube. Let's put it that way. You can't put it back in now and he can't continue to tell me that The online thing you see his justifiable before when you're on campus every day and you're meeting with advisors tutoring having office times and all that kind of stuff and market is certainly confusing stuff to navigate through but even in California. I mean the separate side of it. University of California system is still not all in either so I mean even in California you have to our sides where they're like. Yeah maybe I don't really know so I mean my goodness man I I don't know I'm glad I don't have to be in those positions. I guess you can't even get it. Right one st well that it'll thirty and it was made out of castle rock this way those. Kinda of stories popping up all over the country in every state nudity. And and so. You can't get anybody on the same page this ten people together and sit down and have a conversation about promoter virus how it's handled where we're going to what we're doing and has unfolding get ten totally different opinions. And so that's what really makes this a very challenging Stage were Ford and by the way one of the administration points a couple of times that this isn't so much at NC Double A. And I guess this back in what you're saying about the the story of California it's a government official and this well what we need to do. As athletic and university officials is making the government officials are understanding because we do so much without being a literal communities estate the municipalities will go all being You know walking record as well markets. It's been confusing for me since day. One you know when I look at the sports side of it I think okay. Maybe they can get this done but then I look at little things. We're in the radio BIZ right. We survive based on these advertisers supporting the radio stations that broadcast on and and I'm looking at these local businesses There's a jewelry store for example. There's never more than five people in that store at once. At least as far as customers go in that place was forced to shut down and then I go to Walmart. And there's hundreds of people in there. I I have a hard time with the logic of the whole thing and then my brain goes to man if we can't get it right there. How are these universities? How are the professional leagues going to get it right well and you know that that stuff ended up in an entirely different? You're you're right I I wanted the same thing. How is it that that Walmart's invested? We pay she ate. We're we're all in the sponsorship business and everybody in our business freeze everyone sponsorship but You know set corporation is open but your Mama Pops. South is hot. I think well. Why does that work? How are we are? We drawing that line. I'm sitting. I'm in Kansas Right now. I'm sitting at a community right now. I told local municipal government determined that over the summer they were going to keep the public pool open but shut down all the softball and baseball lakes up. When this person told me I thought myself wait a second so in baseball the closest really anybody has to stand is sixty feet six inches. You're spread all over the field. I guess you're GonNa have a catch at a in a batter that are relatively close up the point but for the most part everyone's spread out and a pool home safely. You policing that when people are running between their pool so there there are things like that picking you the community That went through. Just I'm thinking to myself. There doesn't seem to be any it again. And it being a governmental type job but you take that sit navigate others. He'd like to see just some level of consistency. Leathers logic kid. I Made Matt agree with that but I understand once where like I said. Big Store opened mom and pops off shut. Shutdown BASEBALL CAN'T PLAY BUT WE'RE ALL GONNA get him in pro around my daughter consistency consistency right. That's that's what we're talking about and you know before this all happened. I never went into one of these local stores and felt dirty. I go to Walmart and I love Walmart but I go in there. I definitely feel here that I did. Because there's five million people in here a day surrounded by scratch my head. I always scratch my head. I'm a very confused man. But I I've been doing a lot more lately to sue thanks With what the NFL did last week with Military League Baseball now? I think the the wrong but I think that the data shooting for July with What am I get the the NHL all of that? We'll take some steps and there will be movement prouder to college football starting and if there is moving at if we have a major league baseball games at some level NBA NHL play and. We're getting Trinidad. Disaster doesn't like that makes it easier than the domino's the fireworks now and so I'm hopeful that what we've seen with major league baseball. Abby tell this Winter Sport Leagues mpn. Nhl that maybe that will begin to soften the This whole thing. By the time we get around to August Football Brexit San Francisco. No QUESTION MARK. I love talking with you pretty much about anything. But let's face it. I love talking to you about those buffs and football basketball the XS and OS and all that. So they'll if we can get to that soon mark appreciates you as always been willing to go with us on a little bit of everything. We'll look to connect next week sometime in Mark Johnson. The Voice of the boss. I guess that's the tough part you know I try to do my maxim on this show Colfax is. We don't go too deep into politics but it's not really politics to me when there's inconsistencies right. You've been deweiss jewelers before you've been to redwings boots before and you and I went to red wings. We would a few years back. Colefax what do you think on average is in that store per hour as far as customers go? I mean it's not a high volume business now. A few people is a few people and those are the ones that are shut down but the already high volume businesses like Walmart and target and all that are completely okay are completely okay and and I get it. We gotta have groceries. We gotta have all this other stuff and I understand that but in order to go. Buy those groceries. You know those owners of those stores need to be able to do business and and then they can go support these other businesses and it's it's tough. It's difficult thing and I we. You know. Obviously here at the radio station. This station survived solely off of advertisers. And a lot of our brilliant advertisers a lot of them have been severely impacted. Some of them and a good chunk of them are innovative and they come up with some unique ideas to continue to grow their customer base. But some of them Colfax is unique as they might be. It's just difficult to support a business when we're all in this situation and again you're talking about other people losing their jobs and they're not able to go out and support those businesses even through carry out services so again. I plead my case. I ask at the end of the day. We support local businesses. Because if you're a fan of the show if you're a fan of the fact that we broadcast high school games we broadcast. Unc Games. We we give you live and local updates throughout northern Colorado. We got our KPFK block party tonight. It's it's all. These radio shows turned podcast. Entertainment blocked kid to any of that stuff without our wonderful sponsors without our businesses like CRP four by four. You know they're offering top quality parts and accessories locations in Greeley throughout northern Colorado serving. The surrounding area nonstop. They've been doing it for years. So if you want to get your your vehicle to fit your needs your once your hopes your dreams everything you've ever wanted. Syrup four by four. We'll do it and again I I don't want to take a political stance. I don't like to get into that side of it but at the end of the day. I've said this on the air. I'm a capitalist and I do believe making money and if you can go out there and make as much money as possible. Go do it and a lot of these businesses that I I've been up here since two thousand five been at this radio station for since two thousand eight and these businesses. I just know they've been there forever. They've been doing amazing things forever. Happy Life Gardens a sponsor of ours. When I was put myself through college I worked at the city of Greeley Forestry Department. You know how many trips I made a happy life cartons to get stuff for for what we were doing throughout the community to make it. Look Nice. That was the place we went to and The fact that some of those places are in jeopardy it hurts my heart folks and so I hope you can get behind it and support these businesses and do what you can and know again. I laugh at the whole world and this together because there are some people. We're all in this in different ways. We're going through something pretty similar. But not everybody's ellen degenerates and it's kind of funny to me but these businesses there are a lot like us you know. There are a lot like us. We're wondering how we're going to get through the next day and everything so we're working together on that I can tell you that for sure so support local businesses. If you can and please do tell them you heard about right here on the whole show powered by energy twenty minutes after the hour. There's my spiel. We'll take a quick break. Let's get back to some. Unc talk we got we got bj hill. Guy That I love. I know he's had his past but he's on. He's on twitter account. We're going back and forth. I got players jumping in on this. This is a fun debate. Who's WHO's the best between these four players for UNC? Former and current. Andre Spite Bodey Hume Jordan Davis or Jona roundabout go vote at the whole show dot com or read. The results will get back. Get your message out to our community with no co now nine. Am To ten weekdays on KFI K. Catcher started right with up-to-date news weather and sports mornings with Gail six. Am to nine. Am Weekdays Thirteen Ten KFI K? Hi I'm Darren Done Directive Fedex at the University of Northern Colorado and. You're listening to the whole show thirteen ten KFI K. Off My little soapbox again Colfax have not political on it. It's it's really just about the businesses. It's about hoping that these businesses will be there when it's all said and done because again. That's what we do. That's how we operate here at thirteen ten. Kfi K. A. R. Power Play Sports poll question man now every time. I do a list at least once a week. We do some kind of a list and it's never it's never enough for you whole out there. You always gotta add forty five different names that I missed. I mean in the last five years the best players to play for you and see that it is on this list. The the best this the stars of these teams. And that's kind of where we're going because this is the you know again the last couple years. The bears have had a resurgence. Jeff Lender I'm not taking anything away from Tad Boyle years from. Bj Hill years even though that last year was was rocky for sure but it. Isn't you know Jeff? Had the bad year where they when they re the sanctions against them and they didn't win they like. I don't know eleven twelve games and then the next year after that once they were able to compete again they they never lost more than twenty games or they never lost. They never they never had less than twenty wins. What I'm trying to say that's phenomenal to me. That's that's great that's admirable. I mean I think the goal for every college team I mean. They won't a lot of these coaches. Never tell me this but you gotTa think twenty right. Twenty wins is like your minimum that that separates good teams bad teams now when you're starting to compete for conference titles and all that that separates the great teams from the good teams but twenty should be like that that first markets like in the NFL ten games. You have to win ten. You know that that John Fox always used to say ten games. That's the goal you want to win ten games. I and then you see what happens. But that's what you should be focusing on. Yes everybody wants to win sixteen games. But that's unrealistic so you have a focus and twenty wins kind of separate you this. This isn't good. This is a good one Jordan Davis. Still leading this thing. He's been leading this thing throughout but we've gone back and forth. He's at thirty percent. Joe Naroda boss coming in second place at twenty seven percent whereas Bodey Hugh has got twenty four percent of the votes. Andre Spite Scott eighteen percent of the votes of that. Everything's moved around on this chart so Jordan. I Jonas Second Bodey Third Andre Spite. I don't know do you agree with that. Jd Number One. Probably I mean what he can do. Offensively was really. Joe was probably more of the all around player. So if you're looking for that guy that is kind of the Jack of all trades. I think it's Joan abode. He's probably GONNA be up there you know. He was at what he was averaging. Fourteen points a game last year. I think that that's going to go up and I think that's going to go up big time. I could see him. I could see him jumping up into the twenties. You're next year and wouldn't that be something else? Which is changing. I just refreshed to see what it's at and Whoa this is. This is going to be a tight race. Jordan Davis Joan roundabout tied now at twenty nine percent of the votes. Bodey coming in second Andre Spike coming in coming into second behind those two and then under spite is getting a the least amount of votes for this one at least for these purposes to go vote at the whole show dot com. Let me know who you thinks. The best between those four really good basketball players and we'll boaty hume take the next step. It's been what's been phenomenal to me. Is that every year. You have a guy step up. Jordan Davis was a Nice Robin Andrei Batman. And then date. Jd says boom. Now I'm the Batman Jona same kind of story he was the Robin and then he jumps up and he's taken over this team. He's got a great future in front of him Now we'll see Bodey was Was a great second in command last year. I had him on the show recently and I talked him by. You've you've been asked bodies been asked to be a big part of that team early. I mean he was a big part for his freshman year. You know lender told him said you can't be a freshman year freshman but you can't be you've got to be better because in order for us to do what we WANNA do. You've got to be better. You've got to take that next step. And bodey did for the most part and then last year he was really good they. They were exciting to watch now. You have to say all right no. Jd Know Jona Radha Baugh. It's it's on. It's on Bodey to take this thing and really lead and there's some really good pieces but Yeah Bogies voters kind of the leader of this program right now when it comes to players thirty one minutes after the hour do think.

Flash Start Your morning off right with your recommended daily intake of news weather and traffic to get yourself up and running. Join US mornings with Gail six to nine thirteen ten. Kfi Cayenne well. There was a conference call board of Governors call Tuesday with NBA. Commissioner Adam Silver and listen after that meeting. Espn posting that. There's an there's an positive feeling right now about the league's momentum toward a resumption of play this season all things according to sources from ESPN owners and executives on the call were encouraged about the league's progress toward minimizing health risk upon her return and the League offices positive conversation discuss discussions centered on a health and safety concern including the goal of getting team officials and players. Comfortable the idea that a positive test for the krona virus upon her return would not shudder play. That's that's a key component there because the idea was as soon as you start. Suddenly somebody has it then. Shut it all back down again. You got you gotta be careful with that. Silver told those on the call that have a positive test would shut us down. We probably shouldn't go down this path. So he's basically saying if a positive test would shut everything down then. There's no reason for us to restart this thing because the odds are somebody's probably going to get it. If you know maybe right. I mean they're going home every night there. Whatever there may you can't keep them from going out. You want to put a bubble over everybody can The ESPN posted this question. Though how many tests how many positive tests would be too many that's among the questions that the NBA and p. a? A medical experts have to come to terms with. I suppose but listen. The I just said bubble. I think it's interesting. One of the big lines here was asked about the bubble isolation plan on the call so ver described it as a campus environment. Sources said he's talked about one or two locations for players in the focus. Continues to be on Orlando's Walt Disneyworld and Las Vegas sources said the NBA shared owners With with several owners factors about the plan to stay over the next couple of weeks to see what this looks like stuff maybe as kind of going the route of maybe there's a couple of locations and that that that's tough because you are asking your players unless their families go with them. You're asking players to be away from families for however many months this goes on I mean at least when they're on the road and they come back you know four or five nights in in their hometown or maybe a night or two but they at least get a their family coupled a few times a month this would this kind of shut off and I know that was the original thought process with the with the MLB as well was you know maybe we just have a central location and we ask them to stay here like an dorm typesetting. First advantage text line three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. I curious on the baseball side of things how this is going to go down the pair. The player pay thing might be a sticky point now Jesse Rogers of ESPN said that there was a a a multi hour meeting between Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association on Tuesday which said it was the first step in addressing the complex issue facing the restart items addressed include timing logistics for a second spring training rule changes roster sizes and a lot of it testing protocols contract our contact tracing and response ballpark access. All of that health concerns. They agreed on almost everything. The sides agreed in March to discuss the economics of a season. Played without fans in the stands. Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred has said about forty percent of MLB revenue tied to gate including concessions parking ballpark advertising luxury suites and program so baseball saying. Hey. We're fearful of those financial losses. Owners approved a plan. Monday that would pay players. A percentage of their salaries based on a fifty fifty split. So they're twenty. Two thousand have been on furlough or hold or whatever would be based on a fifty fifty split of revenue from the twenty twenty season obviously advertising. Tv deals on all that sources told the ESPN the union views that concept as a salary cap major league baseball does not have a salary cap so things would change. I mean that's one of the reason. The Union never fights a lot for baseball. There's no salary cap. These players can make as much as a as they want. Geeky DODGERS THEY. Can they can spend if they have it in their in their budget right if they have it in the bank they can spend it you know we're the NFL and NBA NHL have their salary cap to adhere to none of that came up though really today. Just negotiations between both sides. They were talking about everything. But this is GonNa be a sticky point. This was not one of the big things they were really getting into. So that is scary when when it comes out a lockout so we always say we have you know when when football we miss the hall of Fame Game. A few years back When basketball stalled until Christmas? It's going to come down to what that revenue sharing looks like and again some of your first thought is well millionaires. They have not every baseball players as well off as Nolan Erdo. It's something you have to remember. There are a lot of players that are back and forth between Minor League Baseball back up called up and then back down again. It's more money than you and I make the professional athletes. But it's not like we're all dealing with Nado contracts where they can how they should be able to you know. Put something aside here and be okay but again you're asking them to. You're asking them to be okay with this new kind of idea. What are they basically just say? Hey you're twenty twenty salaries or based off of this fifty fifty split between players and owners of MLB revenue from the regular season and postseason. He needed lovely and get a lot of advertising dollars. Well I'm still hopeful though I I'm still very hopeful that something happens because then I guess baseball players are going to have to ask themselves just like any lockout situation is is no baseball zero money. Better than better than areas is a fifty fifty split based on revenue. Twenty twenty better than nothing. And that's what they're gonna all have to figure out again. The conversations the logistics the bullet-point. Specifics everything it sounds like a nightmare sounds like a tough tough conversation. But I'm excited. That maybe in the fourth is still on the table biggest storylines going through for the rockies. I wanted to do my top three but I. There's a lot man there. There's a lot of of of big time factors for this rockies team. I don't care for talking one sixty two or four talking eighty-two number one storyline even our boy. Drake drew craftsman joy. His new name Drew Kris told us yesterday that the Nolan Aeronautics stuff is die down and we're going to be talking about trade the season you're right. Eighty two games were going on with the roster. You have right now. Good luck everybody else. But that doesn't mean we're not talking about for next year. We're definitely going to be in a position. Where for Nolan AUTO GOING INTO NEXT SEASON? You have to decide next year. That's your that your final year before the opt out comes in for both the team and Nolan. And if you don't make the playoffs again one sixty two eighty two. If you don't make the Playoffs Nolan. We'll be frustrated. No one will look at that and say all right. This is it. You guys are clearly not showing that you're going to build this team. I know last year was nuts. But you know at the end of the day. I still don't believe in you. We said it. I I do believe regardless of short season the rockies have to prove that they are going to be successful the next five years. They have to take an a positive step. I do think that means playoffs. That does that mean. You gotTa beat the dodgers. No you have to find a way though to squeeze into a wildcard game. That's what you have to do and again with fourteen. Fourteen playoff proposal was out there. Better shot plus eighty two games so the pressure is on the rockies. If you don't make the playoffs especially now then the discussion will be had. Nolan will pull a Carmelo Anthony and basically say I'm out at the end. I'm often out so you probably better off finding team that thinks that they're a third baseman away from winning a world series in which would be out there. There's certainly teams out there. That are very good. They're missing a third baseman. And a monster hitter. That could help them go over the Hump and win a world series. That's what the rockies would have to find if they go to the playoffs even then Nolan still has to believe that this bullpens getting better. The starting pitchers are getting better that Trevor Stories taking the next step a superstar. David Doll and stay healthy. All the key storylines going in also are all key components. That are going to likely decide whether Nolan his long-term rocky or not. That's why when we did a poll question. Last week we'll rock will earn. It'll be a long-term rocky while he finished that that that eight year contract the those that just you know blindly say yes based on what and those that say no. I would just say this. Got to see how this year goes. You really do because right based on the trajectory from from last year to the aeronautic. Jeff -British rivalry so to speak based on that information. I say no Nolan's not going to be Iraqi based on are going into that is eight eight year contract. He's not gonNA finish that he'll opt out. There is one season to salvage it though in those. I think it's hilarious. Those old school writers that say no. No there's a lot of factors it's not just play. It's it's playoffs or bust. And even then Nolan has to decide. Was this a flash in the PAN? Did you eighty two games? We drew drew laughed about it. But it's true. Was this a flash in the PAN? We just get in because it was eighty two games and we were. We were about ready to collapse but we like limp to the end. You have to ask yourself because no one wants to win a world series. That is what he wants to do in his career. It's not about the money anymore. Made it he wants to win a world series. And if you don't feel at the end of the season the rockies are poised and positioned to compete for one of those in the next five years later betrayed me or I'm I'm opting out at the end of that at the end of the next season anyway. And if you don't think that's realistic than you have Colorado rockies colored sunglasses on it's blinding. You know those ones you got in the eighties. Where had the logo on the front and you could see out of imperfectly perfectly but people look at your eyes and it was just the Rockies logo greatest invention ever probably probably one of the best. I need a pair of those. A lot of this depends on that. Starting rotation Kyle freeland he's Iraqis favorite. You want him to be the hometown. Hero were desperate for for Star pitcher. I love John Gray. I loved how he turned it around. But LISTEN WE NEED KYLE. Freeland to be the guy who was two years ago. You put a lot of pressure on a young man also the bullpen. They're going away Davis. Now we're GONNA see O'Brien Jake. Mcgee do but Wade Davis I mean hey. Eighty two games an eighty two game season. That actually both well for him. Because you know we we sometimes can go a few months before we see an but collapsed from him. He was so good three years ago. If you can get some of that look out. I'm still kind of hopeful for that. I don't know why so kind of hopeful. The Way Davis turns it around Trevor Story with or without knowing Aaron Auto. Trevor Story has to be the guy you know has to start becoming the mega superstar now. They got him through arbitration next year. I think two years and then they'll have some decisions to make and then the next one is David Doll. Can he stay healthy because I think he could be very very good for this team very good? But he's got to stay healthy. There's a Lotta storylines around this team. Those are some of the ones that I'm certainly. I cannot wait to start breaking into forty eight minutes after the hour. We'll take a quick break. Don't forget KPFK's block. Party is tonight preps mid week with Clark Johnson. Then we go into the NERD show sequels. We're talking about tonight. Some of the best sequels of all time some of the worst sequels of all time Jurassic Park to just to give you a hint brew. Talk a New Program.

I do disagree see. I'm just like I'm just like a regular again I do disagree with the NBA's list you're not gonNA put. Tim Duncan over Kobe. That's my biggest. Gripe I can live with you putting keeping Larry Bird out of the top five because again. That's where we're talking about a few players that I didn't that I didn't watch. They got Le Bron number two. And then you know you're looking at what will and Russell Magic Johnson. You'RE GONNA put. Larry Bird is seven. Okay I I don't know how l'art Lebron's over bird My biggest gripe though is first off. Kobe's top five easily but second. Tim Duncan Island. I love me some. Tim Duncan Man. I loved watching the Spurs team. I really did. I thought they were fun. A lot of people didn't think that was exciting basketball. I thought it was fun basketball. Tim Duncan was sensational. Certainly one of the one of the greats but is he better than Kobe. Bryant boy I. I have a hard time with that. That one's tough for me. All right. Everybody I'll be back at it. We got a kind of a mix of programming forty two tomorrow during the whole show and then I'll be back at it on Friday looking forward to that program looking forward to talking with you as always.

I've been working for longer than just the quarantines of Yes bingo. Good. Yeah, you got the everyone's imposter to you. Everyone this this is ask. Your in like game, seven of the Stanley Cup finals right now, though this would be a killer playoff whenever the press had their big playoff run the last couple of years ago. I was definitely fitting in in Nashville with the hockey playoffs year I did the Corentin beard the for the first half of it that first month in. For me I grow facial hair like a fourteen year old Hispanic boy, so it didn't look good, and we had to shave that puppy off, but it's good to see a man. Thank you so much for coming on the walls cast I, do appreciate it. Graham of course -gratulations on this on the self titled. EP Drop in Man. Thank you Sam, I'm so excited heavy songs out You know to have a new project out it's been. Over two years feels like ten Since you know, we've had like a full body workout, but I am and it's it's. It's six hundred. I'm really proud of unhappy. They're out in. The world is a scary thing to drop music right now with these with time. We're living in the inability to tour behind it. I think with me. It's been it has been just so long that like I wasn't a wasn't that nervous? I knew my fans like were long overdue for some new music, so yet cannot like took away the. Anxiety of it, but it is, it is Weird I. Think that it'll be weird like put this music out now, because like now you don't have that like you said there's no tore. Anything is just you're just releasing music out there and hoping that people like it and there's in the. Target that we're aiming for to hopefully get back on the road. Who knows when, but it is just a just a crazy time right now and music in general is the idea to come out with the long play later, or are you just dropping the EP the what we're going to have a whole album probably in October, so this is just of. Did something that when we realized we'RE GONNA. Have you know we saw touring? Was Kinda of open the air. We can dispute this in in getting it out. Glad we did because a guy can gone another couple months without you know no touring no new music. Nethon at a felt like I had Ramallah am I. Really Doing Music. Earn we. Are GonNA come with a full project probably around October. What makes you most excited about this record in comparison to your pass releases I? Think just Canada the growth of it. One of my favorite things is. When I was fans of people to be able to see Canada growth through their records. You know always. Point the air churches one like as I feel like just evolved so much from those early records to worries that now and with me the last couple of years some of these songs that I wrote my first album were before I even admit my wife. Now you know I, have a six month old daughter, Amanda, just a totally different you roun- personally in I don't know. Did you just a just? I think growth is a songwriter as well in there in. Some hoping that that people are seeing seen me grow up a little bit. Lord knows I needed to so. But like the lag time on records coming out is long like I was reading some interview with billy, and she was like I wrote that when I was seventeen I'm the complete. Like nineteen but like. Completely. Cleaned like different chapter of my life. Is this already like past self of you? Even though it's out now, it doesn't feel as long ago. As, like supposed like some of that, some of the songs off a home state where I was like goodness. Gracious like that's that that song feels which some of them were Bob six years old Wesley, now I, wrote in two, thousand, thirteen, two, thousand fourteen, then they just kinda stuck with. Each round of going in and cutting. Scientists continued to make the cut in now they don't i. don't feel so so distant from. You know the Charleston Chevy's are detours or Kuni Moore's. It still feels like it's it. It still kind of me right now was looking at your numbers, and they are absolutely bonkers over a billion spins streams, and whatever when you kind of compile it all together, which is. Just astronomical as a guy who worked in radio for twelve years to get that much traction is so hard to do is one of those things that like. Is that your new norm? That's what you expect to happen going forward. Is there a song that is going to have a hundred and seventy? One million streams on this self titled Record while nomads crazy. I hope so. It because I am a fan of like. I'm still to this day, a fan of records like listening to entire project so like. You know of the and like you, said the billion street. The that's like one of my favorite accomplishments i. have because it is the whole thing is whole home state project you know being streamed billion times is pretty wild. It's not just singles. It's the made that ways leaving New Orleans in in songs that we play now in shows. And it gives just the reaction just as much reaction as slow rancher parking lot. Take it from me, so you know in. We put a lot of work into to the writing in in just the whole flow of the project so to see. The whole project will not just. A single song it doesn't. It just feels great bomb excited to have you on the show. If anyone told you what the idea for this podcast is, but I'm kind of fascinated with. Origin stories and how people got to wear the are. You, know obviously. Someone who has over a billion streams Alana. People know who you are, but then they might not know how you got to that point. Allow people listening to this show one I four encouragement, or just a little bit of inspiration, and whatever the hell they do, so I was wondering. If you have a couple of minutes to talk about how Jordan Davis got to be well, the man that I'm talking to right now. Where did you come from? Man I. WanNa. Raise Shreveport Louisiana to a very musical family. My uncle was a songwriter who actually still lives in Nashville. Still write songs you know. My Dad rode around the house and mom's Piano Church, so like music was something that is from day. One like I couldn't get away from went to school. Actually Study Environmental Science. Was I'm doing nothing with now, but no was big on us going to school and get a degree in my brother actually. I moved to Nashville. You know he's still writes song it don't take it from me a lot of other a lot of new stuff coming out in October lot of stuff on the P countries you're just one of those things that I always say I was around it so much that I never realized how much I loved it, which is weird to say, but it's just like I never thought of it as as it being a potential career, it was. was just something that was a huge part of my life. Something I loved out wrote. Songs is like for fun or going through something outright, but it wasn't until I graduated from Lsu in two thousand twelve. Get a job with a buddy of mine that up environmental company in Baton Rouge I remember one day I was late to work I kinda got in trouble, and he calls me into his office is look man like you know you're not ecology more this this is the real world. Is realize like you can't do that like you know you can't. You gotTA show up on time. And he asked me that men are happy here and I was like. I mean yeah I, like it. You know he's What do you love doing? What are you passionate about? Not The amount. Pass the amusing songwriting that day. He told me that we need to move to Nashville I. Needed songwriter a timeout single Didn't have any money which was great, because like you know wouldn't like ahead to break this lease month to month at the spot I was at in. Mainland three. Within three weeks. I was had my apartment packed up in route to Nashville so very long story short the. Kind of a whim one day. I WANNA. Say with him, but it was just. It took him Kinda. Give me that kick of like. Hey, man! If you're not super happy here, you're young. You'll do your passer, Matt. Go find something you love. That was songwriting in new Nashville's. It was where I needed veep. Did you just turn a story about getting fired into an inspirational? Follow Your Dreams Story. I wish. It wasn't a fire. A US is definitely a scolded, but. It was definitely I. It wasn't a firing, but yet somewhat well. Yeah I guess I did. I lived in national for twelve years. I did radio there, and all my friends were musicians, and there's nothing more beautiful and more true than the saying that all writers and musicians are beautifully delusional and I love the. You're able to make that story you know. He told me to follow my dreams well I heard you got fired, but hey man. However you WANNA cut it up so. I I so. Long Story Short I mean we're GonNa long story long, so you grew up in Shreveport? Louisiana you Kinda hinted at like I didn't think that I was GONNA. Fall in love with country, which makes me assume that growing up you were into other types of music was Cajun. Was it blues? Was it folk was it? What was it that you were really drawn to back then? Man I was. Monday was a massive fan of songwriters like do I was. Heavy into Jim Crow She John. Prime Down Williams Kris Kristofferson. Like all those you know. Some of the great songwriters ever live. But you know he was in control of the music. We're in the car, so we didn't have a choice that we listen to. Whatever Dad wanted. Listen to and. So very early on. It was those guys. Which I'm I'm happy for because. I mean such a strong base of of some of the best best songwriters ever live. You know from early on I'm getting a strong dose of that to where you know. Then I grow up and. Get an IPOD. I'm from that generation so I have thousands of songs at the spin of my own little pod Nanno you know and I could listen to whatever I want to listen to. And I did not fell in love with like arm. Be Like I'm a huge rush. I'm still a huge fan. southern rock and roll like the Black Crowes and huge wrap GAK from. Louisiana Little Wayne was like my my dude and But it was this huge melting pot of. Of just so many different influences in in John Ras that. That I enjoy listening to I didn't think of it as like. Obama, country, guy or I'm just stay. Alike rap music arm be music It was just like liked it. Listened to it in, I'm still that way you know today. I feel like if if the music's good. I don't necessarily look at the genre of it. I'm demand that that song moves me up. Feel something when I hear. It's on, we keep listening to. It's funny at hundred as on a couple of weeks ago, and he's also a Louisiana boy and. It makes total sense to me because I mean Louisiana. Just is a melting pot. It's just so many different types of Arts and culture and people and food like everything there is a million different things, and so it makes sense that a lot of musicians there are obviously huge cage inner blues, Fulcher, you know bluegrass or country like it. Just kind of all is everything so yeah, it makes a whole lot of sense to me You ADD Lsu. I went to Ole. Miss so I, mean you know it's fine? Whatever Congratulations this year. Dude. I've had some good times in Oxford. Good raises. The I've had some good times factors. If I could go back in, do college over again I would have gone to omit. I'm being dead serious. My brother tells this story. He says he's two years older name. He went on like a visit to old miss, and so it gets over there, and he's there for the weekend. And he said he goes and sits down in the date in some Dane I think he was looking at some engineering them. Told me goes the. Jacob Review are coming here because you heard. omiss has the prettiest coeds in all the country that is true and you will fail out. I think the Dean told me the exact same thing, but. It just took me five years to graduate, so it's fine. Suck. When you grow up in this kind of like. The Partridge, family, Louisiana version, style, house, or everyone is a musician. Everyone is talented. Are you all gathering around like the weekends in without guitars and trading licks and stuff like? How did that work growing up? You know my dad would play songs at night. He play like Oh, Johnny, cash songs or he would. He would make up these just Cana. Dump sauce for a slight go to bed or like. My sister would say something and he would candidates. Rip On this, you know whatever My mom was always practicing piano. So, we would sit around and sing with her, but it was just kind of like it was. There was always music being placed. My mom always had something playing so that whenever go to friends house and they wouldn't be music. I would be like Listen to music all the time. Out, really, that's weird like why don't y'all do that when it was, it was just a just something that was always is always there. You get into Louisiana State University you go to Baton Rouge from Shreveport? which isn't too far of a drive right, Nah. Three three hours three. Now you're studying this major. You know parents that the exact same thing was like you know you need to study something, so you can have a job. That's paying for school for. Are you like paying the bills by bartending? And like playing music? College never never had like a music gig never played. Never. You know I bartended at Flemings Steak House, but never never get into playing live until I moved Nashville. Out Do I was in. Nola. was writing songs, but but see when I moved to Nashville. It wasn't for the record deal wasn't for rang wasn't sure that it was just a rights. Record my songs like? Molecules a song writer I wanted to be Deci Markle, saying just wanting to publishing deal. That's it like. That was my goal like Ma. Indo all goal when I moved to town, and I signed a record deal with only playing one full band show. Like at PROMESSI. Hand on the good Lord's book. One time I played. With a full ban in Alabama, I came back and. and was offered a record deal. They knew I was green. They knew that it wasn't like like blown away, but they were willing to. Willing to candidate can learn women. But yeah it was I was just I never like that. That was just something in A. I kind of had this backwards. Look on the Nashville is thought you moved to town. He wrote songs. If somebody heard, your song wanted to make a record on me. That's how you get the record so when I when I first came to Nashville. And people were asking. Hey, are you doing artist? Thing? I don't even know what that meant I was like. I don't know I'm just a songwriter and I bet okay, so I kept getting overlooked on like all these publishing deals out wasn't involved in do I. Remember one time I went to talk to this kind of. The guy that. When I moved to town, he was kind of like that mentor for me. In Kinda told him one day like. China frustrated. I was like man. As see all these other people getting publishing deals. And I'm getting overlooked. and. Like I feel like I'm writing better songs in them. and. He told me yet, but they WANNA. Be Artist they won't. Record deals. In House out. Yeah, everybody keeps asking me that and. Like what what does that mean in his? You know they WANNA THEY WANNA record deal that when I'm putting out tour better today. Ends like if I say I want to do that, will it help me get a publishing? Do and he was like probably. So from that day on House like I'm an artist. But? Yeah, that's how now's about. I that was the first time I considered myself an artist. I'm blown away that your boss in Louisiana was like. Yeah, you should go to Nashville even though you've never played a live Gig. You should totally do that. This seems like right there. I told him I'd played like songs around. We were hanging out like Sophia had like a fire like head people over one night. I would play the guitar. Play some songs that I was working on. but in an odd told them all like hey, I don't WanNa. Do you know I don't want all the To write songs get 'em pitch. He had heard me play insane so. It wasn't like a like a new thing that he was just like Oh. Yeah, man! Go Up there and figure it out. Yet definitely was it was definitely a backwards way of of getting a record deal. Do you think that that mentality? In a weird way was able to help you in your career, because you not to do like a bachelor reference, but it's such like a you're there for the right reasons thing like you're there for you. WanNa create music you love the craft, and the creation of it and great, if I get a tour behind it, but really I want to create something and people seeing the authenticity of the musician in you. Know do a hundred percent like i. mean you hit it right on the head I think that's why early on I was still right. I was writing sounds the way I wanted to write him the saint about stuff that I wanted to sing about I wasn't artist. I was going for that I just didn't know what at the time and I think it took a little while to. I guess kind of catch up to what I really needed to be doing. As say that I fell into it backwards that say that I never knew I. WanNa do it. It was just one of those things where I knew that I wanted to make music that meant something to me and I was hoping that in some way somebody else would here in maybe they would get it. Network can allow me to play shows like acoustic shows, riders, rounds, or do like these cool little things that I love doing at the time. It kinda puts his chip on my shoulder when everybody was kinda getting I was getting overlooked, and I was feeling that I was doing things just as good, if not better than some of the other. People in that were getting these deals. So just count me dig my heels in more and be like man. This is this is how WANNA write songs. This is what. I'm either. GonNa make a million maker. I'm not, but like I'm not changing the way I write I'm not doing anything different than what I moved to town to do. And that's really when it when everything switched, I got introduced universal by a pitch meeting for. Can't even remember who was, but there was two songs one of the sodas in a parking lot. It was getting pitched. Dardis past on all the songs, but I got an email from anr universal. Saying. Hey, we want to have a meeting with you and I was still like why Why they want to meet with me and that was the first meeting where a hayward fan of what you do fan of the way you write songs in your voice. Can we talk to you about coming in and possibly senator deal? And at first I was like scared to death. You know going back to talking to a bunch of great people around me. Decide look man. This is the way you write. Music is came to town, and this is going to allow you to keep doing that, so go take the meeting. You'll see with that to say. Thank God I did so. Is this meeting for the publishing deal or for the record deal? This is for the record deal. Okay? It was within three months of the public and the record. Do I mean it was like boom I gone at four years four and a half years nothing. In almost like. Just overnight. It was that fast with both and what were you doing those four years while you were trying to obtain those deals at found this this bar out in Donelson out west the Easter town called. ellendale is not there anymore. It was right by the airport. I was the like Monday Wednesday Friday out work. A double on Sunday I got to make my schedule. Just me and this other bartenders is a small family owned spot. It was awesome because if I had a big right coming up that week. I can just swap with the bartender. Enacted had the whole day to right in that have to worry about going into work, but. Yemen, it was four years of what I would wake up. I would try to ride from tend to tend three somewhere in there. And then I would head out to the to the bar is for work at three thirty four. Worked about one in discount on. WASHROOMS repeat. For the first almost five years of being town, even when Osama publishing do I was still a spoiler. Publicy deals don't pay a ton of money, but. Still got a GIG for a little bit even after Osama publishing do. All right, so you're slaying drinks. You're writing and Co writing in your off time. Are you going around and playing like losers and Bluebird, are you? Are you doing that kind of whole thing? Writers around listening room. That kind of stuff I was doing listening room at. Get the play Bluebird not long after Santa Publishing. Males mostly just like rounds in town. You remember tap tap. TAP over in bellcore. Yeah, way my I thought I was playing around at. So just kinda anywhere in town like my buddy would call me. You know I have a friend. Call me and said Hey do head spot opened up at around. Can you come over here and play three or four songs? And then whenever it got Tom to can start doing the band thing I was too nervous to play in town so I would book. Book! These light no-name bars in North Alabama or Mississippi and I will go down there and play for like a hundred bucks you know, spin six hundred bucks getting my van and everybody down there, but like I knew I had to get better at it as I do not know I looked so uncomfortable stage, so that was the early on lab music row.

Was Your at some party? And you play the song You are too drunk, so didn't Kinda kill it. Can you tell that story? All right, so we just detours hours. Riding is about the time we wrote detours off the EP. My Buddy Day terminal has has a spot east a town over office river this river, so we went over there and we were fishing all day in office, looking for publishing, he was signed to a company, called Ole at the time, and when I was out there. Dave told me that he's. He asked me that. Hey, man, have you sign a publishing deal yet? Now's like now Ma'am still looking. and. He's I will do my publishers coming out here today, so you should. Talk to you can get a meeting. I had a good buzz going on in that room and I was like Man i? Wish I would have known that like you know Kaz. If we have a fire I would probably start playing until are better than that insurance. That's exactly what happened, so we built a fire were hanging out in days. Like pay been. You know who ended up together first time. He's a hey, man. This is a my buddy Jordan. He just moved to town looking for pups Jordan play some songs, so they hand me guitar and I am just tank in. In light can't remember anything. Start Butcher in my songs in the felt terrible, and even Dave Kinda felt bad baddies man. I should have thought about that because we're hanging out fishing having beer all day and the next morning. I'm like driving into town in my brother is kind of beat me up on as I. Do you had a chance last night that I play some songs in his date you it. and. But Luckily Ben Simmons emails a Hey, man, you know. I realized the other night it was. It was kind of weird situation, so that like two days after that he had me into his office, and that's how I got that meeting by screwing those songs up so bad it let him. Do Oh God. That would give me so much anxiety that. Don't I? Know I always every time I show that story I bet you. Don't follow that route. Because also like I'm a I'm a terrible singer, and like have serviceable guitar player, but I've been that party so many times, and then handed the guitar so many times and got like halfway through blackboard. I'm like I. Remember the lyrics. Yeah Dude it's a scary. Like I didn't sleep at all that night I remember just being like dude because I mean like I said I was. Four years into town so like every meeting I was putting so much pressure on myself down to like. Did you get a? You GotTa make this work? Make this work to I. beat myself up so much because I mean. It was at that time where I was Kinda like. A ad put a two year. Limit on me moving town because I moved to town later. Now's twenty. Six twenty seven. And And I was just in here I am for years and I had another opportunity that kind of blew it. I was almost to the point where I was like dude. Donnie go back Louisiana. Get A job. Come up, buddy up you now. The man didn't work out. You got a job. I burned four years of my life because you suggested this new. Job. Why don't you just Barbie likes? You have a lot of great songs, but I I think singles Yup is is my favorite one. Just because I'm engaged now, but it's a song. A lot of guys can relate to. It's like hey, man. If this ever goes to shit, yeah, I want to be here, you know. Absolutely. That's exactly what that is. Where the song come from I wrote down Steven Dale Jones just Niba, in Justin, had just gotten engaged, and he said that a friend of his they were somewhere in midtown I thought the losers, red, or somewhere, and one of them said you're smart in never single her up and just put it in his phone and silver sitting Enron. injustice anything to like You're smart. Never single her up, and I was like that's kind of cool like it sounds cool. I've never heard it put like that, so we start writing this song about having this amazing girl that you never wanNA single era in. We've got about halfway through about an hour into writing that and I was like is. This is boring man like? Like I. Don't think this is the way we need to do it and I was like, but if we switched it because I don't know about Y'all, but I've been in a situation where I've seen a girl that was taken, but always talked to myself. I do that would be such a better boyfriend when she has. In both bow. Just Stephen Derelict do me. Do man up in here. In like a media like flipped it in the song like. Came within an hour I always say as I can remember so many times in college. Just being like God man if that girl wasn't Dayton that clown. Be Such a better boyfriend, yeah! That's one of my still one of my favorite song to play out. Loud your married now. Does, your wife like to hear that song we played. Is that weird thing? MMA. She doesn't mind singles you up. There's a few other ones. That she's not too big on. Take it from me being one of them. That's about you know ex. In N. also like going round is another one that she's not crazy about Carr's. That's about another another girl, so yeah, but she she answering was the up at all huge songs, so she's like well. Hey, as long as it keeps getting played, yeah! That one paid for the West, wing of the House. That would. Be Her Amazon You remember the first time you heard yourself on the radio I. Do like it was yesterday I was in Houston Texas. We were in a sprouts parking lot and I was down with my set my radio Rhett. We were sitting out there in our member. Thinking this is one of my first first weekends out with her. and. She's awesome she. In world will you're sitting in this parking lot waiting to go somewhere because she knew it was coming up and. I remember thinking like. Why don't we just got like? We could see the House that we were going to like. Why don't we just go over there and like walk in? The All we're not supposed to be there till Bob and I was like like four minutes like. We had that way and sure enough. It came on after before before you seats. By. Carrie Underwood's alike Carrie Underwood, wrapping up. The DJ comes on. He starts talking and then I hear that I lick open licked singles you up and I remember just being like Whoa. What is that and she's filming the whole time? And then it breaks into my song and did I. Lose it I up saying a bunch of bad word, so we couldn't post his amount. Kill me! She's selling bad as it gets. anti-sheep probably thinks. I have a kid. She probably thinks I. Still, haven't you know, does anybody? Use like supersonic bad is at dropped I dropped a few bad words I can use. It was dude. You never forget that that I especially I moved into town and like that being. Such a a goal of mine that when sticks with you for longtime. How do your parents feel about your success? Now? Were they like thousand inevitability, or are they blown away? Where how do they take it i? Think they're just is probably just a shocked as I was. The I'm where I'm at you know just because you know like you said man I never never did. Show thing so when they come and see me now you know when I was out on tour. Old Rascal, flatts playing these huge. Either hockey arenas. AMPHITHEATRES you know we're open up for these economic bans like the flats I think it's just. It's just crazy for them to see that in NBA like. What, where did this come from their super surprised, super happy in event, super supportive of just a move to national in general now after moving to town I realized that that wasn't always. The case with people's parents says Mansa tough business like and. Neo No parent wants to see their kid embark on something that that most of the time doesn't work out the way that they they cannot see it, but man parents are great, have been nothing but supportive It's been awesome. Your son writer at heart, which is evident in like how well songs are doing, but you. You went to this town to have other people. Cut your songs. Who would you love to have? Play one of your songs that hasn't. Hasn't yet. Oh, man! If you were to call me and tell me I got like a pair. Churches kept on your song. That'd be like holy smokes. They don't massive Brad Paisley Fan. That's why like this thing. When the pandemic kit we're slated, go towards this summer and that had to go away and and you know I don't think it's GonNa work out to get back out the next year so You know that's like now kind of heartbreaking. On the tired record is. One one of my favorite records of all time. So yeah like Church Paisley Sang in one of my songs would be be pretty wild, pretty poor critical. What songwriters would you love to cover on one of your records? Tom Douglas Casey bettered. It's crazy in and I'm sure you've probably heard a lot of to, but there so many songs in town. That have never been released have never been recorded. That all there is is a demo in its. You know some of the best that have ever been written. And I feel like Casey Tom or two that. Just had this. rolodex of uncut songs that are amazing are actually talking this morning I wrote. A Song Hillary, Lindsey and Jesse Frazier. That's on this EP in Hillary. Singing on the track and she just saw her voice is just so amazing. I want to just be like Hillary go in. Get twelve demos. And just record, and just put them out like just picked I twelve. And I guarantee you. It's like it would end up being like a grammy, award, winning record, but It just so many talented writers town. So many amazing songs that I hope get her, but unfortunately the sad thing is probably a lot of. Won't but yeah. My two favorites Casey Better Tom Douglas the new EP self titled Jordan Davis is out now. Almost maybes has been the single that was released has been out for good bit. If people are only familiar with that first single, what can they expect from the rest of the record? Man I'm all about the even with home. State like balance is such. A big is such a big thing with me with my albums. I, an amazing producer in pottage Vanni we worked really hard at having songs that feel good and they're fun to play. Laugh is that's a huge thing of what we do, so you have the songs like sandwich you up, almost maybe take it from me. But but also the balance of of the songwriting with detours in Church Chevy leaving New Orleans you know I hope it hits, you is I. Hope It. There's as much in. It is his home state, but it's just me this next chapter in this next. Of growth of me as a person you know is a new dad is husband. just a little, a little more a little deeper look in the in the maze. Person in growth is in Arctic, says well. I want to be respectful of your time, so I won't let you go before I do. Can we do some rapid fire questions with Jordan Davis absolutely all right here. We go I one therapy stopping. Sausage biggest mentor who might go my grandfather's both Oh. What were they? Do you godly man? Hard workers blue-collar dudes? They were everything man. Just a I love both of those guys a lot.

League in the summer basketball portion of it so he joined the nuggets for the two thousand nine hundred Summer League and then he signed with boxy men Reza last year's well so he's doing a great job. Jona rabbi talked about this yesterday. Colefax he signed with Octagon a very famous agency. That works with guys like Steph curry and honest onto Toco. Mbo from what I'm told from my sources that agency only works with players. They truly believe can take that next step. Which I guess is the case with a lot of agencies. You'RE NOT GONNA. You'RE NOT GONNA waste a lot of time working with guys you don't believe we're gonNA take the next step so I started thinking about the success over the last four or five years. I mean Jeff Lender obviously was very successful with this team and now you're looking at the. Oh Steve Smiley what. What can he do with this crew? I mean they've been getting better and better and better every single year. And it's been fun to watch. I mean Linda was improving all yo every every year. I mean getting. We saw what they did in the with the CIT over the years winning that championship game back in two thousand eighteen. Winning seventy six to seventy one. I was that was great. I mean they've got a lot of exciting going on so I started thinking about this Colefax. Who's the best the last four years we've seen players that are good enough to play at that next level and I'm really just talking about the last four years? I I know there's I know there's been great basketball player Devon vital a guy that's working in this community. There's been a lot of great basketball players but I'm talking about the last four five seasons because every year we have a guy play great for you and see then he's overseas and other guy steps up plays great for you and see goes overseas. We'll see what happens with Joan. Rabah Voting Hume still playing so to power play. Sports poll question of the day. Who's the best bodies still has? His story still has yet to be told. But maybe some of you already are thinking. Well I see a lot in that guy. Think Hume's the best. So here's where it stands right now. Jordan Davis is receiving thirty three percent of the votes. We never talked to Andre spite. Troy did but we we had a great relationship with Jd. Pretty good relationship which owner roundabout we recently talked to him on the show Great guys sensational guys. Thirty three percent go on to Jordan Davis next in line. Twenty six percent of the whole agains are saying. Bodey hume is that because he's like sterling. 'cause I know he was our Cave K. preps player of the year. And that's a fan vote as well so I'm sure some of those. That voted for him or kind of trickling in here this this afternoon at the whole show Dot Com. Andrei spikes getting the least. Hey it's been awhile right. It's been a while since he played a few years of already gone by so some of you might not like an obvious if the bears go on and you know they win the Big Sky Conference Tournament and then they go to march madness and make some noise and he has an epic game there. Then that mean. Maybe you're thinking Andre spite but you know the bears for the most part. They just continued to get better and better every season spite played. When was that was that two thousand sixteen and say know two thousand two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen? Was He played? It's all kind of running together at this point now. Two thousand seventeen to eighteen. The bears were that was their next year after the sanctions so this year that year they were able to compete at in the tournament so he sat out the year before of the transfer from Arizona. State they were twenty six and twelve that year and they were just. They were eleven and seven in the conference. Obviously that was jeff lenders. Second year the very next year was Jordan Davis years. You know where he was the leader of this team they went twenty one and eleven and then two thousand nineteen which was just this recent year. Right we didn't get see that thing play out in the Big Sky Conference Tournament But the bears were twenty two and nine so I mean the last three years. This team has found a way to win. Twenty Plus Games and obviously that did enough to get a few programs interested in Jeff Lender and obviously Wyoming was very interested in Jeff Lender. Who's better now? I didn't see I saw endorsed by a little bit. He was a lot on TV really because they had some of those games. But Jordan Davis was like I mean he remember that dunk too. I mean we're all GonNa to tell with that dunk. It was on. Espn top ten plays. It's that dunk was ridiculous. But it wasn't just that I mean he was he was a hell of a good best defensive player's Jona Radha for sure no doubt about it Bodey I'm really curious to see how he does this year because he he has a little bit of everything boy tough because Joanna was. Joe was kind of like my type of player. You know the kind of guy that I really liked to watch. Because his passing ability was so good he improved his offense so much this season but I loved watching him play. I mean the way he would get down in the paint in his head. His head seemed like it could turn just complete circles. Because he's looking you know as he's driving. He's looking for his for his guys for his teammates and it was crazy to watch. I mean he was just so quick but he'd find guys open. That's a tough one Jones. Probably up there for me. You Know Jordan. Offensively the best to me. The best offense guy but bowed. He's going to be on his way there soon. Go vote at the whole show dot com power to play sports poll question of the day. Go ahead answer that one. I mean the bottom line is he. The bears are turning out some really good players. Some really good teams Sir Charles texting. What kind of contract data lender well? He tripled his salary. I mean that's that's what we know a five year contract starting base salary of two hundred twenty five thousand as first reported by the Casper Star. Tribune it will eventually go up to two hundred forty five thousand so as much as I like. We had jeff lender on right when he got the job. Great guy still still going to have a connection with him on the program. He reached out to us after our show won the award of the car. Broadcasters Association. So we're going to. We're definitely GONNA keep an eye on what's going on with him but he's I asked him. I said obviously money. How much how? Much does the fact that the support just was not there. How much did that come into play? And he said it came into play quite a bit. So can you can Greeley support. Can Greeley really fill an arena on a regular basis? I'm asking because I holding out there. You're listening I'll be curious to see how how much you guys get involved in this conversation. Today Kim Greely support to me. I'm Colfax weren't isn't it fair to say? Unc was the best basketball team in the state last year. Yeah I think you could get away with. That was good. They were getting better. They were surprised that a lot of young talent than the way they fit they. They lost to Wyoming in the in the conference tournament. See you had great moments. But then awful moments there was really no inbetween in. They were top fifteen team in the country and then suddenly lost six in a row. They they did have their first round of the PAC twelve tournament before everything got canceled and they lost to Washington state. I thought at that point. Unc was playing some of their best basketball. Eastern Washington was a good team. They lost his Washington home but that was a great game and and trust me from Washington. You know they. They won the regular season title so they would have been the the team you know if if we were doing selection Sunday just based off of that which was really ridiculous in again. It's my whole philosophy college. Sports College basketball. Why do we have a regular season champion and then tournament champion? Gimme one or the other. You know the seedings one thing but don't call a champion. I actually even like the tournaments even like the fact that they have conference tournaments at the end. I'm an old school. Nfl Guy. I like you play within your division. You win you go up records. And that's who wins. Whoever has the best record wins the thing? And then we go onto it. And I get got have seating and all that stuff too but if we're going to have the conference tournaments you shouldn't have a regular season title. I also think if you're going to have conference tournaments not everybody should get in that. Wyoming. I know you pulled off some upsets Neto. But you shouldn't have been that just takes away. I mean we talk about baseball. Say Not every game means everything. This is college basketball. Says that every damn game. Nah Not every game means it players. Don't believe that but not every game means everything. If you'RE GONNA get into a tournament anyway I been is text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. I'm curious to see how this goes tomorrow. So we're going to have kind of a Potpourri of program programming for your during the show. I've got a few webinars that I'm on tomorrow. This one specifically I'm talking about is the UNC side of things. So I'll be very curious. No that's that's what it is. I mean you're talking boosters you're talking to boosters about your program and I've I'm honored honestly have been asked to host this event and I don't know what to expect. I don't think anybody does because it's zoom meeting right. It's it's all something new trying to talk to boosters because you're not in contact with people the way you have been so coach. Smiley came up with a plan to say we kind of just want to touch base with all the boosters out there let them know what we're up to talk to him about the recruits talked to him about the new coaching staff So I'm pumped about it. I'm I'm looking forward to this. I think it will be Certainly certainly interesting eighteen minutes after the hour of power to play sports. Poll question of the day. Who's who's better right now. I mean when you look at this group of players. Who's the best hoops player between these past or current? Unc Bears Andre Spite Jordan. Davis Jona Radha or Bodey Hume Jordan Davis getting the majority of the votes right now but you can go vote on that one at the whole show dot com are on the rocks liquor game beer of the week from funk works brewing enfolds say.

They've they've helped us out here at the station a lot. I know plenty of staffers here at the station. Utilize ought Taylor. I have for several several years now. I was referred to them by a good friend in a completely different business but I remember him telling me about a new pump. A new mechanic. Come to town and Auto Taylor and Brent is a wonderful guy.

Get you on the road and you can trust these guys. I trust the motto Taylor in Greeley First Venice text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. This vote is heating up now. Colfax Jordan Davis is still leading this again. It's at the whole show dot com our power to play sports poll question of the day. Who's the best hoops player between these past or current? Only one of them is current. Unc bears thirty one percent. Saying Jordan Davis Second twenty-eight percent Jona Radha Bodey Hume is getting twenty five percent. Well Andre only played the one year so for him to win this thing like I said he would`ve. They would've had to win the tournament. Go To march madness and him make noise there But he was. He was a very good player for this team. He was getting fifteen percent of the votes and again in spite played for the bears. He averaged twenty two points per game. Three about four assists per game about three or the. Let's see four four rebounds per game so I mean he was. He had some great numbers and obviously beyond what he's doing with you and see you know playing in France. He's still playing professional basketball now. Joan Radha he just got better. The points weren't there but everything else was. He averaged last year. He averaged six point. Five per game almost two steals per game six rebounds per game and then sixteen and a half points so joan kind of did it all. He was not like the best offensive player on the team but he did a little bit of everything and obviously when you look at Jordan Davis he was a point score machine with what he did. With what he did at. Unc Bodey Hume last year. He averaged about fourteen points per game. So I mean that's that's pretty good and software so we'll see where you know where his what his this this next year could potentially be absolutely huge for him Jordan in that final year at UNC averaged twenty three points per game so he was put up the numbers but he put up big numbers throughout he was averaging sixteen and a half points per game this season before nineteen points per game his his sophomore year. Eleven points per game his freshman year so jd was always a big part of what? Unc was trying to do and obviously he's going to be a part of this this this meeting tomorrow to. I'm not sure where he's doing it from but we've had him on the show a lot and I'm looking forward to catching up him. Joan rabbi will be there in vote Hugh will be on the line. So it's Kinda cool. You got a current player that set to be a leader of the team will be involved in this conference that I'm taking up tomorrow as well as to well one guy that's already playing at a high level at the next level and then Joan who. We certainly expect to do that. First event is text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six. Espn has this list of well rankings. They put out the everybody's talking about it again. This Jordan last dance documentary has us all talking about. Who is the greatest player of all time? Any guesses two. Who's number one on this list? Colfax Michael Jordan. Yeah Okay Yeah Pretty Pretty fairly easy. Lebron James Number to call that at that. I necessarily agree but I mean he got a lot of Lakers. In this list. Lakers man Lakers and Celtics. I mean those are the greatest teams right. They were the legendary teams Kareem Abdul. Jabbar is next. He's sitting three Bill Russell at four Magic Johnson at five which makes sense wilt chamberlain. It's six Larry. Bird is not on this list until number seven so I mean most of those conversations that you have our Jordan bird or magic or abroad. Larry's not even in their top five on this number eight is Tim Duncan I loved him. Duncan don't get me wrong. I mean he he was a great player. Certainly one of the greats is easy. Top Ten of all time easy above Kobe Bryant is. Tim Duncan better than Kobe Bryant. I cannot go there on that I I go koby like top five easy. He's nine he's behind. Tim Duncan at number nine and number ten is shack. I want your thoughts on this. I posted it. I posted the top ten to our facebook. Page is this is this. Just a stir us up because I can't imagine Jordan's right I don't go Lebron James at too. I don't know I mean again. If you WANNA say guys like Kareem abdul-jabbar Bill Russell. Magic Johnson Wilt Chamberlain Larry Bird. We're all going to have those debates. They should be there. I'm not sure I mean I think. Larry Bird's top five Jordan's Jordan's fine where he is. I mean that's how good he was. There's no debate. There's no debate but Tim. Duncan is to get over Kobe Bryant in this list Ken. Boone says birds should be two or three Dakhli. I've always my mind is always done the Jordan Kobe. Bird thing and again. This is a guy that watched all of Kobe's career. I watched some of Jordan's career at a younger age. So you know I know what I'm watching. Do I appreciate what I'm watching? No probably not as much and I didn't watch Larry Bird but I had a family full basketball fans that did and obviously you can look at his numbers. You can look at his rings and you can go through all that so I I tend to put them up again. I don't. I'm not one of those guys who tries to pretend that I go back and watch the film. I'm not going back and watching a bunch of I mean maybe I've seen a couple but I'm not gonNa go back and watch you know all seasons worth of Larry Bird and do not GonNa do that so I'm not going to be. What was a pretends that I know? Yeah Larry Bird was great because everything I saw when I went back and looked at the film. No you just know it from stats from his history. You know from his championships. That's that's all you can do on that and and a lot of times that speaks louder. There are times when you can have the debate of. We'll just the eye test like shack shack top ten or again. If he wasn't that size would shack be a superstar like Nicola Yokich. That's an interesting one because the guy can pass shoot. If he wasn't seven foot could he still be an NBA could still be an NBA player? Yeah his passing abilities. Shooting ability is better than an average an average. Nba Player being seven. Foot certainly helps him. Shaq couldn't really dribble he couldn't it wasn't the best passer. He was a pastor because everybody would try to collapse on him and then he finds. Somebody wasn't a good shooter could make free throws. Is He top ten? I mean I guess it is what it is right. You can't punish him for being huge if he dominated and you couldn't stop him but like Wilt Chamberlain could do a lot man. I mean he was all over. The floor was a big man but he could do a lot thirty two minutes after the hour. We'll take a quick break Martin's Voice of the buffs but maybe he can weigh. In on this with US I mean th we're in. We're in strange day. I'm not saying that word Colfax. We're in. We're in unique times. So maybe we flip the script on mark here and ask him what he thinks this list and maybe some updates on the PAC twelve as well thirty two minutes after the hour. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash thirteen ten K. PREPS radio is northern Colorado's home for the past high school coverage. This is Matt Ray of America's first news. You're listening to the whole show with my Guy Brady Hall. Hey I'm not knocking. Devon bichsel. Mugabe hills commented on on my twitter account same. Where's that guy? Well this was great. Devon was great no matter how many you can do this list all day Colefax. Somebody's GonNa add another person in there right now. Devon was part of that run. That wasn't a run right. They they go to March madness and I think that year he was averaged. Twenty points per game or something like that. It was magic man he was. He was fun to watch this. Is I guess. More of the last four years or so on this question and it's not eliminating everybody else this basically these last for four years in a row. Well okay three years in a row. You've had a player play really well with UNC. Go on to the next level player. Really play well with the with. Unc going to the next level. Obviously Jones is going to. He just signed with a big time agency. So it's only a matter of time and then Bodey Hume. I don't know probably I don't know if that's next year. I think he finishes. He plays four years at UNC. And then we'll see what happens but I. It's a fun poll question. You're never going to get everybody in there. We threw in basically the last four seasons worth or last four three last three seasons. I guess with bowed hume included as far as. Who's the best bear on the whether it's current guy which is boaty or passed and we went back to Andrea spite? Hey it's it's not worse than the NBA list. We're getting mark on one at one o'clock by the way Colefax. So he's a he's a busy man even pandemic world mark. Johnson is an extremely busy man. So we'll get him on at one o'clock I want to pick his brain about. I know he's not the I don't know if he's the biggest NBA guy in the world. But certainly WANNA ask him a few questions about that can be fun year. Talked a lot about you and see. I know but I tell you. I'm curious. Bears fans or whole. Agains out there listening. You know you have a local and I'm not one of those guys. Trust me you you got a life to live you go do your thing. Life's too short to to to to take your time outside of work to go support things that you're not really into but I'm curious. What would it take for you to start going to? Unc Basketball Games on a regular basis. How do you start filling up bank Colorado arena I know moby arena knows? You has the same questions. And they're certainly doing a better job of that collectively. But when I had when I had jeff lender on after he took the Wyoming job I specifically asked him. I said Hey was was. The support of the community is sticking point. I said I don't WanNa get you in trouble. I know you cared a lot about greely cared a lot about the staff and the school and he does and he did but I I asked him flat out. I said was that part of it. Did that bother you? And he said yeah you know honestly a little bit you know he goes to Wyoming. They went through. Unc Travel there for the last couple of years and they found ways to win those games very rare again. Wyoming's program hasn't been solid last couple of seasons. But I don't care going in as you couldn't do it so he goes to Wyoming and he sees this support you know. He sees he sees everybody. Kinda getting into the only gig in town. Wyoming is the only Gig in town. So why you know Wyoming has tons of rockies fans you can listen to rockies games right here on thirteen ten K. by the way Wyoming fans whenever that happens July fourth although now the players are kind of like we know we're trying to figure out the whole trying to figure out the money side of it which that's always GonNa be sticking point so we'll get into more of that as we progress through the week here. Hopefully they can find some common ground. I get it I I used to do the show years ago. Our News and Sports Detroit over to the Voice of the bears. His schedules nuts. So it just doesn't work but we you know we. We started this program together seven years ago and we had some knock down drag out fights. Colefax flat out you know because he was of the mindset. Hey why the hell. I'm not bashing him this again. I get where you're coming from. Why in the hell people not go to more Games football and basketball and I said well football. Ya GotTa win you know. He's more like it's a community thing and I'm not that way. I love the community Colefax but too short. I'm a busy dude. You want me to go to your games. It better be because of work or I'm thoroughly going to be entertained when I go because if I go and you're putting garbage on the field and it's forty to nothing every time. I just wasted three hours and I'm never going to get back as the truth of it. That's the truth of it and that goes the same for the NBA goes the same for the NFL. It goes the same for anybody else. And that's how most sports fans view it. Now you got your hards that are going to games. No matter what so we we went back and forth and I talked about it and I said listen this is Colorado man. I mean you can go hiking you can go to a rock you can go down to. Denver go to a rockies game you can you can go fish and you can go to any one of these lakes around the state of Colorado there. There's a lot of things to do man and not to mention the sports side of it. You got your Colorado Eagles. Now that's providing a hell of a good time. They just canceled their season. The H. L. But go to an eagles game. That place is packed. It's IT'S FUN IT'S A. It's a great time. You have your rams just down the road CEUS YOU WANNA pick football. You WanNa pick basketball. You know you have obviously boulders not that far away there. There's a lot to do man so I get it. Hogan's I understand it if you're looking at Asana to a game it better be worth it but I'm telling you from my experience it was. It was worth it you know reasonable cost and last year. Unc was the best game in town when it came to basketball. I honestly think. Unc Co beat to you. I last year anyway. I don't know what that looks like next season but I I would have put. Unc up against and see you last year based on just kind of what we saw so But I tell you what we're going to find out if bears fans or if if fans in Greeley and northern Colorado get excited by name because we're GONNA find out really quickly about UNC football if that's going to be enough to get people excited. Get Ed McCaffrey. There be read says yes. If you have not been to an eagles game get to once again be like. Is it just the game? Because I've been to a few of them and it's not even the game for me. It's it's the IT'S THE AMBIANCE. It's just the setting. I love what they do with the Budweiser Events Center. I mean it's a blast there. It's really fun Sir Charles. They need a better student turnout for basketball and football. Yeah I mean in so it's interesting. I went to UNC twice. I went as a freshman. Two thousand five came up here at a high school and man. I walk around campus and I don't see you and see bears like sports plastered all over campus. Now could be different now but I would go on campus and I wouldn't see now you go. I would go visit my buddies Fort Collins everywhere you look. There's a football banner you know. There's something about football. There's something about a player in everybody's talking about the game. I mean that's just the way it was. I had friends all the time it's like. Hey what are we doing Saturday night? Well we're doing anything until after the rams game you know. And that's what it was and they didn't even do. I mean they weren't even phenomenal about it. Because you walk outside campus in Fort Collins Kinda. They did struggle for awhile to promote now that promote promoting the hell out of the rams now that might be one step at UNC when you walk on campus does it scream and shout that I mean if if there's not there's not an ED McCaffrey banner every five feet on that campus Colefax. Because that's what you need to be doing you know and again same for basketball. You get behind your stars and you blow that up and you make huge. And they're getting better at that. I know they started putting the imaging pumping Colorado arena. And I love that with players. But you have to make it larger than life you have to and again Ed McCaffrey. Right now. Whether you're annoyed by it or you love it. He is the thing he's the guy that's GonNa put you in them now. Xs and Os wise man. I'm telling you I don't think. Unc BASKETBALL IS GONNA take much of a step. Back with Steve Smiley. I recommended him. I wrote Athletic Director. Darren done an email saying hey. I don't know if I matter or not but if you don't hire see Smiley who hiring because you need to. It's not the big name. Talk about a guy that's committed to your program. Now McCaffrey again. I like the higher. I don't know how it's going to turn out in three years four years. I don't know no clue Edward Werder of ESPN says this guy is going to be in the NFL before too long. I respect the hell out of Ed but I can't go there I'm looking. I need more than two years of high school experience before. I'm ready to go that far. Sir Charles I agree with that not enough of the. Unc Logo should be everywhere. Well in Greeley's bad about Colfax. You're downtown a lot. Do you see a bunch of stuff that says Ed McCaffrey. Ed McCaffrey McCaffrey. There's one billboard up and it's kind of fading a little bit at this point. It's the one on across the street from the mad cow. That's right is that right. Yeah I mean it is up there but it's Kinda been there while some updating maybe paint so you have that but it's not like so if I'm taking a stroll downtown like in the in the two little Kooky those cute adorable little blocks that everybody loves downtown. Is there any? Is there anything that says? Now Ed McCaffrey is coming to town now dude. I'd be all over that we've got this. I'm trying not to be a jerk here. But there's a marketing campaign. Going on in Greeley called really unexpected. You've probably heard of it. There's a lot of that going around dude. Did you know that it three times super bowl champion? That used to play for the Denver. Broncos is now our head football coach Greeley unexpected boom. Blow that up. I could get into a whole marketing aspect here if you're not if you're really unexpected. Campaign has anything but the stampede and the University of Northern Colorado. You're missing the boat. I came up here several times before I decided to go to school here. Nothing about what? Greeley did to support to promote. Unc made me come here. My sister was coming here. I knew somebody that was it. I had a great time and loved it but yeah you have to get behind the school and I haven't seen it. I see. It's getting better and I'll be real honest. I think it's because a lot of the staff at UNC. I think they're getting after my one of my one of my guy one of my good friends over there. Davidson voltage IC. I can never say his last name correctly so I have to mess it up on purpose now. I think they've done a really great job of marketing themselves. Better players are getting after and doing more things to and they're asking that so I think that's a great thing interesting I mean. What what's IT GONNA take is that? Is that what it is? Is that the big thing. Is that the marketing aspect of it. Because that would you know again? I went to the Greeley Chamber event not long ago and I go to a lot of these. I go to four Collins. I go to Loveland Greeley. The main talk was McCaffrey. And it's like dude. Where is that noted in here? You know where is it downtown? Where is it in all of these big establishments that Ed McCaffrey is going to be a part of a part of you see this? This was this was statewide news. In some cases it was national news because somebody station in Denver. That should know better plastered. Said Ed McCaffrey is now the new. Unc coach different UNC. By the way will North Carolina for you. They botched that one big time but that became national news. Because it's screw up no and McCaffrey's not the head coach of that. Unc It's this UNC. What's IT GONNA take for you? Okay be rod you you text in about the eagles. What what draws you? The Eagles gave is it the sport. Because if it's a sport then yeah you're GONNA lose their but if it's the if it's the setting then yeah what's it. GonNa take because I've said this for years. Colfax and Fort Collins has gotten so so good at this lately. You drive in Fort Collins that you can't drive for more than ten minutes before you see something about CSU maybe it's football.

Episode #4 - Interview with Nic Stone ft. Dear Martin

"Hey guys welcome to the book Junkie. PODCAST brought to you by Brown gets read. This is a podcast where I bring on one of my friends and try to convince them to read a book that I really enjoyed. We talk about plot themes quotes, and how the story relates to us in real life, especially because routine majors I also interview authors who are making a big change in the world of young adult literature by writing about hot topics that are impacting the new generation. It's pretty much just a casual conversation all about books. Let's go into the episode. Today I am joined by Knicks Stone. She's the best selling author of Deer Martin odd out in clean get-away. She's also releasing a new book in September called Your Justice. She is a former cheerleader and graduate from SPELMAN, university. She loves writing and fever food is Bacon. I have the opportunity to talk to her. All about her book. Dear Martin in the background behind the story. I actually did a podcast episode with my friend Christian about Dear Martin in some really important issues that were encountered in the story. Miss Stone thanks for coming on the chat with me. Thank you for having me my dear. Okay so when I was reading about you and the birth of Deer Martin, I noticed that you have the concept for the book. After hearing about the shooting of seventeen year old Jordan Davis and I really love that you took initiative to write this book after seeing a problem in the world, so in what ways did writing this book influence? You personally not just your career. So the reason the Jordan Davis story impacted me so intensely because I have to African Americans sons. My older son was five months old windows. Davis was killed and it hit me in a place I hadn't been hit before because I didn't have children before so having a child who will grow up and we'll who, and who will be similar appearance to Jordan. Davis and to Michael Brown. Tamir Rice into all of these these. These black boys that have lost their lives. That's what made me want to dig into the book, and it has helped me to be more aware of my surroundings. Be More aware of how the world functions and also be more aware of my parts in this shared story that we're all living in how you know. My role is to write the stories that I think needs to be written, and hopefully with some kind of. Hopefully there's something in the stories that make people think a little bit harder. Yet can kind of relate to that because when I hear stories about that, I think my little brother who's also little black boy and when he gets older, he's GonNa look like all those other kids like you said about your son so i? Get concerned scared for him. I'm like I. Don't want you to grow up because I. Don't want something to happen to you or something to impact your future. Even take your life away from a simple mistake or somebody else's misconception. Yeah. I completely agree and I was reading the book and I noticed that Justice had kind of an internal battle with his personal relationship with white friends, in the fact that others who looked like them mistreated him so badly you know when he was arrested and they ripped his best friend away. What message would you give to Young African? American tour experiencing those emotions will the interesting thing about racism is that it's it's a systemic problem. Right like this is the problem that exists on a societal level and individuals obviously are affected by the way that we think about ourselves. The way that we think about other people is obviously shaped by the messages we get from society, but. And this is a big bite. It's important that we recognize each individual as an individual. I did have some problematic white friends when I was younger, and I was justice, like I, had that experience sitting in a classroom and hearing these things said around you that you know there's something wrong with there's. There's something not okay with what these people around you are saying, but you don't know how to speak up the thing that helped me the most. Most was coming to the realization. That like I. Get to be in charge of me. I get to be the person who decides who I'm going to be. What I'm GonNa do I'm going to stand for and what I'm not going to stand for, and I think that when kids in situations where you love your friends, but maybe your friends are saying things that highlight some problematic ways of thinking or or maybe wages. They are thinking at all. For me now what I would say, it's important to like. Talk to them about it. If friendship if your friendships are real, your friends should be receptive to hearing what you have to say into hearing about the ways that they hurt you and if they're not receptive to that, then they're probably not actually your friends. Is that make sense? Yes, because even in the book I was looking at the relationship between jared in manny in I was like manny should probably say something to jared. All other white friends who are saying comments that are aggressive towards his race in his people. You know yeah, yeah, but it's tricky like it is a tricky thing when you've been accepted by a group of. Of People for so long? There's a desire not want to upset that. However, even manny got to a breaking point. Right and I think as long as we recognize our own value. It's easier for us to stand up for ourselves for the people that we care about. Yes, because I understood manny's perspective, too, because he that's all he ever knew. That's what that's what he grew up with. You know the quote. Unquote preppy black boy and I think it was a really different take on young adult literature to see a black kid like many injustice. Go through real life struggles, but just the specifically because he found a way to. To confront it with peace, how did you come up with the idea for justice to write letters to Dr King Interestingly enough. There was a second. This is I won't say a second. This was like in a string. It was a pretty high number in the string of shootings, but there was a shooting that impacted me just as much as Jordan Davis, and that with the shooting of my own Brown in Ferguson Missouri, in response to that shooting, protests and marches broke out across the country, and it was really amazing to see people's kind of standing in solidarity against racism, but there was also a contingent of people who would quote. Quote Dr King in opposition to some of the protesting in the marching, which is a thing that like never made sense to me. I'm like no I'm pretty sure this is exactly the kind of thing Dr King. Not only would have stood for did stand for so after hearing. There's the mayor the mayor of my city. Actually at that point was his name was Christine read, and there was a day where we were supposed to do March and he got on the news, and he said all I ask is that you don't take the freeways. Dr King would never take a freeway and Dr King took a lot of freeways. So that it was like that line of thinking that made me want to examine contemporary events through the Lens of Dr King's teachings because it seems like any time. Something happens to a black person and people in the black community express any kind of anger over it. Other people white people, specifically especially white people in power. We're GONNA throw Dr. King says if like Dr King would have done things differently. He wouldn't be mad type thing and I don't agree with that, so that's why he ended up writing letters to Dr King because I really wanted to address this notion of Dr, King As. A pacifist quote unquote in the sense that like he would have. Just kind of taken would've thrown at him. I don't think that's true. Yeah, and I think it's also hypocritical for people to argue against the protesting with the words of a man who is quite arguably one of the most famous protesters in the world peacefully. Preach Baby. And justices name justice. It's pretty cool to me because the whole book is about justice for Black lives. So when I was reading the book at Keep Reminding Myself Pay, this is his actual name and the spelling was pretty unique to the y. c. e. when you first started writing the book. Did you have justices name? Just stuck in your head, or did you have something that inspired you to name him justice. Yeah, it's always been a very overt play on words. everything about this book is. About Justice. The character in the book is a play on words and Mike and I spell it with a wide did not directly on the nose so I was burying it just a little bit. Because you know people, we kind of created with the way we sell our names and I think that's beautiful day so from the get go. I knew this haircuts name was justice, and I knew that her name justice was going to be writing letters. Dr King, trying to figure out how justice actually work, and so throughout after book. If you see the where this is a good team, you can replace it with the concepts like in the opening chapter you have justice being arrested, and that's what's happening to the concept of justice in that scene, because there is no justice in that scene is being arrested as well because the boy hasn't done anything wrong, the girl has. So yeah I dislike kind of in your face metaphors. That's interesting. I love reading books. You know not not necessarily hidden meanings, but purposeful placement of the words. The absolutely and the sequel. Dear Justice is I. Kid incarcerated writing letters to justice, and it's the same play on words, so that was fun. Yeah, I can't wait to read that one I've really can't in September when that book drops, I will probably be the first person to read it honestly, and that brings me into the title Dear Martin Even Justice was it something that came after the story was written, or did you write the book based on justice writing to Martin or you know the title? Yeah the latter, so like I. When I wrote this book, I knew it was going to be a kid writing letters to Dr King. And Dear Dr King was just too much of a mouthful. So I went with Martin and like the same thing with your Justice Justice Kwan. He's a character India Martin is writing letters to justice. So that made it really easy fun fact, these are the only two books of mine that I have come up with the title for because I'm actually really bad at titling books, so these were easy, obviously like you ever kid writing writers Martin and Kate Writing Letters to justice very simple with my other books. I had a lot of help with those titles. Like how you called him? Martin in the Book Guy, made it more relatable for me, because if just wanted to be running dear Dr, Martin Luther King Junior dear Dr. Martin Luther King Junior now. I like that I liked how it was deere Martin like he was writing a letter to a friend. Thank you, and if you had to add another character into justice life, this is kind of an interesting question. Who would that person be to him? so interestingly enough the draft of Deer Martin that went to prints in the draft. Everyone like it is in the actual book was not the first one the initial. Dear Martin had it was double the length of what everybody's read. It had eight different points of view. It jumped back and forth in time and justice actually died on page three So. The very different book, but at the same time it was the same book it just like I, move stuff around, however in that previous version justice had a little sister, and she says she was a year younger manny like. Thing for her, and I wound up taking her out. In Edit. It's the one regret I have about this book because you know if you I don't know if you noticed, but there are no black girl in the book Melo is Biracial, but there's no straight up black girl, representing the black girl experience in the book because I, wound up taking her out and not realizing it I. didn't I didn't even notice that I had removed. Removed myself from the story, so that is the person that I would honestly put back in like if I could add another character, I would put her back into the book because she really was this kind of sounding board and this voice of reason in the thick of everything going on so personality lake. She was a big reader. She was kind of quiet. She kept to herself. academically driven she injustice were a lot of like She did not get along. Get along with their mother at all. Where justice with the he has the issue with his mom when it comes to s j win the sister within their. She and her mom just didn't get along at all so like it was just added a different layer the story I think. I would've loved to read about her. And I was reading the book in the realization came to me while not really realization because I knew this was going on in the world, but it settled in for me that this really is the harsh reality for so many black teenage boys who are being victimized by law enforcement in this book is actually the truth like some of their stories written down, so do you know anybody in your personal life that face this kind of adversity with law enforcement? I absolutely do unfortunately I know more than one person. I know one person who just turned eighteen, and he's one of my favorite people on Earth and he has had. He's had some run INS with law enforcement that have been completely unfair with every time he gets arrested. He gets out in the charges. Get dropped because he shouldn't have been charged in the first place type thing and then I actually have a female friend recently had an experience with police brutality that. Shook her up pretty shook her up pretty badly and it's it's interesting. Right? Because in both of these situations, it typically ends up being. There's always more than one police officer. Always and you have this group of like. Three four five police officers who are all for some reason intensely afraid of this one. African American person. You know it's it's such an interesting dynamic, and it's an unfortunate one and I'm glad that I got to write about. Police brutality, and I got to write about kind of this humanity of people, really because even police officers are people, and we're all fallible and I grew up with a police officer in my house. My Dad was a cop for the first twenty four years of my life, so having his insight and having him help me kind of walk through. Separating this ideal when it comes to what police officers are supposed to be from the fact that like they're human and they mess up. That really helped me with this book, and it helps me kind of when I'm hearing these stories from friends. It helps me Kinda like knocking as mad as probably would've other. Right, and it's not even the fact that it's all these beliefs offers going for this one person, a lot of the Times that person is a child. They're minor, and they're not even doing anything wrong. That warrants time treatment that they're being given. I even saw a video of this young girl and the officer that that she was holding a blunt, and she was holding a mechanical Pencil and the officer tackled her. She was fourteen. She was one year younger than me and that really hit hard for me. Yeah, and why? You know like why even if she wa holding a blunt. What would be the purpose in tackling her? You know what I mean like. It's one of those things around like what goes through your head. What goes through your head? When you're making these decisions that clearly are not good decision right and I know you went to bell men in Hec you and I love the idea of going to college of the bunch of people identify. What's kind of jealous on model fifteen in college yet, but towards the. Justices roommate is a preppy boy whose first impression immediately. Let's readers know that they're. Really Award contrast between their backgrounds. So, what was your college experience like in? How do you think it would differ from experience at a predominantly white college so I can tell you exactly how it differed from from the experience that a predominantly a predominantly white institution, Pwi, if you will, because I went to one I started at Georgia Tech So I started my first year college at. The Georgia Institute of Technology, which is a technological university definitely majority white and I hated it so much. It's interesting because I came from the kind of space that justice did with regard to like my classes. My high school was very diverse Supermix probably I think when I was in high school. It was one of the most socio economically diverse high schools in the country like not just the state, but like in the nation so you had kids who only eight at school, because they didn't have food at home or they didn't have a home. And then you had kids who drug this wound BMW like it was like this very wide variety of students that was very ethnically diverse. It was majority white, but there were people from all different backgrounds I had friends from all different backgrounds, but in my classroom spaces I was typically the only African American student. It says a lot about how we qualify the word gifted etc ninety to go into that right now, but. I had classrooms like justices, so I thought that the transition from a space like the one I would high school in to space like Georgia tech would be an easy one right like I was used to being surrounded by white people, but it was next level and walking around in a space where you have to be like you're there because of merit, right like people think of college it's like. It's base you. Being at an institution is basically based on test scores and grades. Etcetera Etcetera so if you're at like a more prestigious institution, people expect that either if you're if you're a person of color, there's either this expectation that you. It depends on what kind of person of color you are right, because like I. Don't think anybody aside a students of East Asian descent at Yale like that's the. There's this expectation that that east people that are Asian to sink are very very smart, but if you're Latino. Or if you're African American, if you're African even there's this expectation that will you're only here because -firmative action and I could feel that walking around campus interestingly enough. There's a scene in the book. They're talking about their test. Scores Justice Has Gotten Higher Higher Act score in jared. Jared is kind of the main antagonists endear. Martin and jared just does not believe him when he when justice says this. I pulled that whole scene from my life year of high school I had a girl in my iffy language and composition class, who was appalled at the idea that I had gotten a higher act score than her and I could feel that same kind of attitude as I walked around the Georgia Tech campus, so I transferred with Spelman and it was be complete opposite like Spelman, with such a warm and welcoming and life giving place because suddenly you don't have that cloak over you right like you don't have that feeling of somebody looking at you and assuming that you're not supposed to be there, it's just you are free to thrive. People are supported. You have all of these people who look like you and who know what your experience you're like. General experiences in this country are like so you can just vibe and it was I. can't I can't have more highly recommend the ABC experience for kids who are for kids who are black his. It's just like for a minute for four years. You get to be in this. This incubator where people want to see you succeed, you come to discover how beautiful it is to be the type of person that you are and everything about you is celebrated and I just like. If I could go back I would definitely do it again. Yeah! I would love to have not experienced because like how you were saying you went to the diverse high school I went to. An. Elementary school was predominantly white, but there was still a lot of diversity because it was predominantly white, mostly white people there and I had a lot of white friends. There was once this white boy that had the audacity needs to come up to me Commun- Oreo. End I was like I'm not an Oriole I'm a saw new I i. don't really understand where you're coming from with that, but that's just an example of how. People were trying to alienate me because I was black, but apparently because I speak properly, I sound white, which doesn't make sense. You can't sound or color, but I was speaking to when I spoke to Christian about Dear Martin, for the other episode. We discussed how jared was trying to make justice feel like less because. He thought that he didn't have a higher test score, which that doesn't have the same education, and it's not even about test scores test scores don't necessarily determine your intelligence or your emotional intelligence or anything like that it determined your ability to retain information, and that information back out on a test paper, which is bad I'm just saying that's what this and irritated say that to justice into so shocked. You know shaken to the core. He was shaking in his boots. Because justice had a higher test score was just crazy to me. Me Too 'cause that's that girl by class was looking. There's no way you gotta higher than me Okay why is that like? Why is that your assumption? And it's interesting because when you call, people backtrack immediately, because most people don't actually realize that they have these racist ideas in their head, and it's it's like. They don't reflect. I WanNa say this racist ideas don't reflect poorly on a person. As long as that person is willing to deal with the idea where it came from, so we are all products of our environment. We grew up in a country that has drilled into every single one of us that we are listed on when I say one of I. Mean Black People that black people we are less than. We don't have the same emotional I mean the same. Same, intellectual capacity! We are not as smart. We can't do as well on test. Scores like these are things that we have been conditioned to believe about ourselves, and that other people have been conditioned to believe about us so when you call that out, it's like okay now. You person who just made the statement that is a racist statement, and that calling you a racist I'm saying that what you just said with a racist statement that is evidence of a racist. Racist idea that you have in your head. Are you willing to confront that idea in adjusted? If you're not then, you are racist if you are. They're being anti-racists right? And that even goes back to the ideas of segregation in schools. Because when those black kids got him, he down from white people, they were thinking in their head. Hey, you don't deserve the new things, so we'll give you the old things and it's Kinda parallel to now when white kids think. Think that they're better than us. Because of the you know, it's just not true. Everybody has a mental capacity and I just don't like that stereotype. I think it's really ignorant for people to say yes. I completely agree and also like the way that we hold up standardized testing as this kind of end, all be all message on intelligence is also kind of a problem because it's not everybody's brain works the same way anyway. We could talk all day about this. Right because for double I'm a really good test taker I can remember information sometimes without even studying put on tests, but the person next door might struggle memorizing things, but the really really good at math in systems and things like that Yup. Okay, so now we're going to go into the quiz segment in I'm going aboard are well. The you know your book game were I'm GonNa ask you five questions about details in the story in each question, you will have five seconds to answer correctly. What a gun! Your point in that final score, so that's a little takeaway from this conversation. Question One. What type of car was mellow Taylor founding when justice SAR, it's a Mercedes.

Algorithm Sadie Yeah You said Candy Apple Red mercedes-benz. Yes, okay, awesome! Okay, question one. That's correcting. Question to. What is manny's cousins full name? It's Brunell. Look one Bain accurate. Yeah I just wrote a whole new book about him. You know. If I missed that one ever going to be a problem. Yes, that's good. Okay, so wanted to correct question number three. What beverage did bring justice when he came to visit? GATORADE. Yes, and I know that because it's my own hangover remedy. I am thirty five years old. And sometimes there are times. On. Question Four. What is the name of the mountain that justice in many were supposed to go hiking on? Down Mountain, yes. Are Eighty, percent of the way through your winning right now.

Yes yeah, yeah, yeah, he's been very outspoken about it and listen know he's one of the most thoughtful people you know. I I was saying this to somebody else. Recently, which was if I had to rank all the coaches that I've covered over a couple of decades in sports journalism you know just on. You know th their ability to communicate really well be very thoughtful and I mean Michael Malone is is maybe number one in that, but Yeah. He got it stuff. Stay and you know I think a lot of people. Have you know a brady? I think this is been a a point in time, which a lot of hearts and minds have been touched, and people have been very. Eloquent about speaking about that in and been a more willing to help be a part of loose part of the solution and Mike alone. is one of those and and Tim. Conley, as another, we chance to talk to him yesterday on Sports Social Show in a long long range, a wide ranging interview, so the nuggets response, especially from its highest You know quote, unquote highest ranking people has been been fantastic I. Think Brady. It's the response has in fantastic pretty much worldwide you. Well. There's there's a lot of negatives about twitter and facebook, but we were talking about this earlier. You are seeing some pretty powerful videos to their videos of a lot of people coming together. From from all walks of life and trying to get things right to so. Yes there can be. There can be some stuff on twitter that we don't agree. Agree on be videos. There could be riots, but at the same time man.

You know what what's happening in the past and these kind of points. Is You know we? Did it strikes a chord with a lot of people, but you know time things fade away with time, and so you know the the real test I think is going to be over time and to see that when they are moments, that need people to rise up and you know act. That we are still is willing to do that down the road. As we all right now and so, but this is a it's been a great start in a great response by by so many people Chris Dempsey joining us from TV and for Chris to say somebody's the nicest guy like Mike Mullah because I. Always say this about you man when I first met you. I think I'm an Internet cafe or something, but I'm I'm Denver I I. Don't believe it was for training. Camp was a a random practice or something, but I met. You have read i. Read Your stuff on the Denver Post for years and I mean I've heard this from several young reporters so this this is you keep up the great work. They say Chris gave me all the tools I needed. He gave me confidence he he said reach out to me. You gave cell phone, numbers and emails, so man I mean hats off to you as well. My friend I say you're the nicest reporter I've ever met so for you say that about Malone at saying something. Bribery shape at. Things I've tried to do over the course of my career Is You know we we? What's the saying? MOM, each one lift one. You know I I didn't get to where I was without help. Without somebody you know, so. The the people in my time would have been like guys like Tj Saimaa. who used to be a a writer for the Los Angeles Times and spears, and Adam Schefter and you know these people who would read my stories and give me critiques, or in the case of Adam Schefter he was a guy that. Basically took me under his wing and said okay. Here's how you do. These are the questions you need to be asking athletes or coaches. This is how you write a story. This is how you uncover news and you know I. I. That has never I've never forgot that I've eternally grateful to those people and I. Just wanted to pay it forward. You know I, it's. it. This is not an easy business to get in and to thrive, and to you need allies, and you need people to help, and you need people to or just for advice, you know it's. It's. I want to be there for as many young reporters as possible because I know. There were so many that were there for me as well so I. Appreciate you saying that Man I'm it's something that I. Really do take seriously. Take a lot of pride in in regards to Michael. Malone. It's just yet. He's you. You don't run across a lot of coaches like that. You just don't and But he has one and It's the nuggets are really lucky to have him and We are a as media. Lucky to have a guy who cover that. Is that honest and quite frankly that friendly with the media when when when he meets with Melanie, also said something else Chris talking about what he expects from this team. He's pretty confident that Denver go to Orlando and. Not, just compete, but maybe when this whole thing. This whole unique is edited version of guess, a little bit of a regular season and postseason. But. Yeah, yeah, he's. Really came out strong, and in terms of that that one you know piece right there, which is listen. We think we can win the championship right now and you know it's I it. It is a lot different from what the listen to the. They always said this season. You know coming into this season. Hey, the goal is to win a championship. It just seems like it's a little more pointed right now. It's a little more. Definitive, as we are going to go there with the with the clear goal of winning a title and That's that's been a pretty eye opening. It really has been, and you know you know why, not them? Why not them? You know it's it's. It's a talented basketball team and. You know when you're talking about being led by a player, the caliber of Nicoli okay. It's you can. Just put! Up It seems like with ease, but not only that have those numbers really translate into victories far more than far more than than they don't been. Yeah, you have. The star piece covered You have a guy who's on the precipice of that in Jamal Murray I'm sure he's chomping at the bit to get down there, and and and you know continue you know his career and he was having a good season, and he wants to continue that as well and then. Guys like Michael Porter Jr. who will be healthy You know he spoke to us. About just not not feeling right after the ankle injury, and not you know just. He was being hampered by that so that is something that is healed totally and access to a gym. Gary Fill His game on the just fine. When he comes back, but yeah I mean listen. The nuggets are with thirteen, the western conference going into all this that that was for a reason, and so they should feel very confident about their chances of going down to Orlando and walking away. you know making a deep playoff run at the very least all right Chris. Take us through this then so my first question. Are we going? Are we receding here? Are We doing eastern conference? Western, conference IT'LL BE EASTERN CONFERENCE WESTERN CONFERENCE AND Yeah so. The you know. The. They'll play eight regular season games, and then if they need to do this and they'll play play in you know a play in series quote, unquote between the eighth and ninth seeds and so. basically, if the the the ninth seat has to finish the regular season within four games act. And if that happens, that'll trigger in the play in a scenario, and so it's a double eminem nation for ABC which means the would have to lose twice for the ninth seed but yet the nineteen only has to lose once to be eliminated in that so it gives the advantage keeps the advantage what they feed but it it it allows that ninth team to the the opportunity to. To win twice and and to get into the playoffs, so that that'll happen in both conferences, because the though the Washington Wizards are the Loan Eastern Conference team that will be included within the twenty two, and they are actual nine seat so they'll have to finish within a within four games of the. Orlando Magic to be able to trigger that on which quite frankly I think they will. Well off and it makes it interesting, too. I mean this is kind of playoffs before the playoffs, if AIG aims I, mean Portland's got almost view Portland, and as you said. A Washington. They have to view every game playoff game right now. If you want to try to get close and maintained that within four games, but yeah, they do and so I think if you're the Memphis Grizzlies. One of three and a half up. So, what is that about a magic number? Five something like that you know. A U U N Five Times. You just eliminate you. Know You keep you keep these teams. Four Games for You know four four games behind you. That might be bad math, but you know the act team just needs to keep winning. To keep to keep their to keep their their their their advantage. What it is at what it is right now, so you know for for for Memphis for Orlando. It's about continuing to win. For the rest of these teams. It's about taking advantage of the losses. That Memphis Orlando would will suffer the way and keeping yourself within that four-game thresholds to be able to check trigger it, but the one thing that we don't know just quite yet is how what will happen if the ninth seed if there are. If there are multiple teams. That are tied for the nineteen that are also within four games of the ACC, so you'd have to have some sort of tiebreaker among the night, Sita teams as well in the western conference. She able to determine which team then plays that a C team for for the play, and so there's just an added layer to that, but but It was really it's. It's really cool to see the dates and and you know they have the format really laid out. In front of us in full here today. Chris, what does that mean for next season? Does that mean? The season starts around having around Christmas? so the next season as I, see it. is going to start on December first or they will. the the the. Next training next year next season's training camp will. We'll start on November. Tenth the NBA said, and then then following season will start on December first and so you know what I? It's interesting Brady because. This gives them an opportunity to go either way in terms of if the NBA wanted to get their old calendar back, they could you know they just? They can just shrink next offseason and just say okay. You know we're. We're going to shrink it and we're going to start normally back in October again and. September and then get the season started back in October and get back to our calendar or They could say you know what we like. December first and so we're GONNA. Taylor it! We're GONNA have a full off these next year and the next to following season. We'll also start in on December first so. it's A. It's a really good question, but this December. First date is so in the middle of that that you know you could just shrink one off season. Get back to your old calendar and have regular every every year after that or you can do something different was so bad. That is going to be up to them, and we'll see where they're leaning here in the next over the next few months. It's going to be nuggets rockets. You think you thinking it'll stay. Stay that way. Obviously, there's a few things to sort out with games, but are we. Are we likely looking at a nuggets rockets first round? Yeah that'd be. That would be my guess Yes, Oh, but you know. Listen the Oklahoma City Thunder, so the rockets and the Oklahoma City. Thunder are both actually tied forty and twenty, forty and twenty four, so there can be some movement there the Utah Jazz is only a game ahead of of the thunder and the rockets, so there could be some movement within the Jazz Thunder rockets scenario so it would you know you might? Be playing any one of those three teams in the first round, and quite frankly the nuggets are only two and a half games in front of all those guys, so they're. They're going to have to play pretty good basketball to maintain the three spot. In the Western Conference and and make it so that. Well I. Puerto Venezia's doesn't matter as much anymore. Unless they do something to give the home team, a little bit more of a boost or the home court advantage, quote, unquote team, a little bit more of a boost in this scenario, but but yeah I. I. You know I think if we're looking at this. It's GonNa. Be The jazz thunder, or the rockets will be the nuggets opponent. One of those three we'll be the nuggets bonnet in the first round of the playoffs and you know well, we'll we'll. We'll take it from there and you know there I think they've been generally except for the Utah Jazz. They still had game to go against Utah. you know. They swept the Oklahoma City Thunder, and they were good, but not great against the rockets this season so you know I i. I think if they were trying to. Pick upon it probably. Be Oklahoma City. I can't wait man I'm excited. On that home court thing, are we? Are we piping in crowd, noise or something or we're going to pipe in some booze? If something happens I I'm curious because I still I'm excited, but I still it's going to be so weird, not seeing fans. You'RE GONNA. Hear the ball crystal I, mean yeah, we. We should pipe in something. There are a couple of boo, birds, and cheers and things like that. Yeah, I don't know what they're gonNA. Do it funny. It's tweet this about the time that. was about the time that Golden State announced that he was not going to play games in front of fans, and this was right before they in bay spend at the season I think the NBA was has started. Things were starting to be a leagues are starting to say well. Maybe there's just GonNa not GonNa be a wow, that's. Really GonNa be kill homecourt advantage, but that is at that time. It was still like the teams still traveled to the other home Jim. It just wouldn't be fantasy. Out Now it's it's a total. Now it's. It's a total. Excuse me neutral site and you know I. I. Don't know I think that just gives the advantage to whichever teams the best team in the NBA The best team pretty much. Just injuries, notwithstanding the better team pretty much always wins that just is is going to get the advantage to the best team in every single round because there's just no other variable for. The team. That's just quite as good or maybe just on that notch below to. Use Energy from somewhere else to rise to to rise up and and and beat a team. These are just going to be Jim squeaky with like you said squeaky shoes you know a we'll hear it all and it will be. It'll be basketball, but you know it'll. It'll be different. Yeah, it'll be different, but like you said Keyword Eric. Key phrase, it'll be basketball I think we're all excited to see what can happen and Chris. We'll be pumped to fall along with you. Man through, so what's going on with the media? Real quick I got about one minute. You. Are you able to go? Are you going? What's that look like for you? That's a good question. I know you know the NBA it. It really is because you know there's so much media across the league. You know so. Who Do you let go down there and new, don't you? Let go down there. And what are the reasons for that? We haven't really heard anything. About that yet. I gosh, I gotta guest that if they were really trying to keep everybody safe. We'll just have to do these zoom. You know you get the team down there and every press conference zoom call you know I mean I. You know it's i. don't see any other way. Although ESPN will be down there and so ESPN is going to be down there. Who else do you know it's? That's going to be very interesting. I don't know yet. I'm not planning on being anywhere, but in Denver for all the for the entire time but that could change. We'll see Christmas man always appreciate nobody better in my opinion and we look forward to catching up with you next week. Yes, sir, we'll talk to you. It sounds giving Chris Dempsey of altitude TV. Hey will see. We got basketball. Steph or sorting things out forty one minutes after the hour Colfax get the latest on the local sports flash.

Who's on the phone? Hey Alex how are you doing pretty good? What would you like to say you know? Well I WANNA stadium morning You know with all this stuff going crazy and whatnot Just a member like the military I have friends and family stuff. They're all deployed and stuff and we don't have all these fights than cancel people aren't being replaced so just if you know if you know military family reach out and see if they need the extra help and the extra helping hands or anything because their loved ones might not be coming home anytime soon. That's interesting they can't replace so they can't come. Back stinks. Well I appreciate you sharing that you know yesterday. We had someone talking about being a truck driver and some things we don't think about and you know I mentioned. I only know what been around and jobs. I've done. Which is like. I've worked in the service industry as a waiter and busboy and dishwasher. I've worked in retail at hobby lobby. I worked at a marina. And I've done this and so I can relate to these experiences like I know. Waiters going through but military. I haven't done that Your husband did that but hasn't been in a while. Something like this has happened. Yeah no but I mean I can. I know what it's like to be towards the end of your deployment and know that you're to come home even when you're maybe a month owl or whatever and for a family to know that your loved one is coming home and then to have. That drastically changed with unknown. You know an unknown home date. That's gotta be really hard and then yes. It's a valid point to check on the people back home that might need something You know because you depend on that person coming back home and when it changes. Gosh Yeah thank you for bringing that to our attention pay. Alex appreciate the budget. Sorry later why don't we see what's happening in business three of us in here?

Hey how's it going since you've been confined in quarantine for the most part with your girlfriend for the last but two weeks now so we've been together every day for two weeks in the house and it's actually going pretty great and I don't know what else to say a more so than it's just going gray die you know? She doesn't need to be at my side the whole time nor do I need to be at hers she goes. She's still doing to back to school. She about to graduate with a Master's her graduation for was coming.

When I get home he comes over. Play Video Games. Sometimes she'll come up and realize what's going should come up. Watch basketball roasted both. Because we're not very good at basketball. And then she leaves and it's going pretty good though I mean I would say it's going really good is a long future ahead of the Corinthian. I was just thinking. What if you decide you're going to Corinthian with someone and you don't like home because she lives in California right now? She has the last year so it's not like she needed to go home. They were getting a final goal. She'll get an airplane and nobody wants to do that. And she only has a little a few clothing options because she did brought a suitcase when she was coming over once and so it wasn't a big suitcase so she has taken over some George in the back of the closet. She still has her causes that I got. I got a little rock for close. It's going good. Do you guys have any questions because I feel like listeners? Wanted to know how it's going. It's going good anything. I love it for you. I think this is great. I think she's she came into your life at just the perfect time so you don't have to go through this alone. We were talking about how I have been a couple of weeks later. We don't earlier later right in the sweet spot on like hey. Why don't we just quarantine this together? I feel better about it. I don't want you alone. Not even about that. But I'd been finalized but I'm just saying as your friend. I don't want that. I made a joke to Eddie. Maybe you're too. I was like Oh you guys finally get to my Christmas bills. Like where things aren't open you're alone. There are almost no cars on the road traffic. But it's like that kind of thing but that's what my Christmas was like every year dramas off and I'm like well. I wonder what's open? I get some stuff for the next few days. Like welcome to Bobby. Christmas Danville great now now from Christmas. But that's it. That's it's going great. Actually it's going really great in where I'm GONNA get down. We're not tired of each other yet. We better not be. We've got a couple more months of this. I think that y'all are healthy with it anyway. You've been intentional of having your own space in your own time. Even if you are quarantined to the house you're still having your own time and I think that's GonNa be Kita surviving this dog. Yeah and all can be a real hit. Sometimes and she loves the dog and that's a big part of it because it's me her on the dog. So that's what's up with me a amy. So what's the deal with pandemic? Because I know my husband recommended it to you and for whatever reason when he mentioned it to me. So it's a Netflix. Show and he wants to do. I thought it was a movie. No it's a series on Netflix. Yeah so I turn it on. I'm all pumped up to like workout. Watch this movie. Be Like a good distraction and I get. I can't even get through episode one halfway through my workout. I switched it to Jane the Virgin because I I think maybe I need. That's what I need to know and I guess I'll check in with my husband too. I didn't know if you started it but does it get. Does it pickup anymore? Does it get started? Endemic how to prevent an outbreak season won the audience scores. Sixty nine percent. Yeah bobby loves IT SO YEAH. It came out. It has nothing to do with this current virus situation so it let it. It is was interesting to see how there are people. There were people already what I did see in the first episode people that work on viruses all the time and they know that inevitably something like this is coming and the in episode one. They were speaking specifically about viruses from animals. And how it's just like it's only a matter of time until one comes that they just don't handle him but they are working actively to try to be as proactive as possible. And I was like thank you to these people that I didn't know that we're working hard to prevent unknown viruses. That don't even exist yet. The Juno or did you read the Washington. Post story about the before inauguration. Now for the current ministrations inauguration trump's inauguration. They put them through okay. They put them through a lot of scenarios. Yeah getting them ready and the virus one happened and they were like this is only going to happen and that even like a substantial percentage of that staff that was even in it was like not even working there anymore. 'cause have all been fired. Oh I mean four years ago. We wouldn't have thought this was going to happen disappointed. This movie is that there are scientists and people working on it because they know it's going to be said in the article that there were like it's going to happen at some point. They willing noticed right. Well that's why I if you're into that then I guess check out pandemic because you learned that in the first episode that yeah that that's literally what people have dedicated their life to and you're like oh so this has been a real thing for a long time. Okay sometimes you better not knowing. Yeah I know now we. Hey what's ADS Eddie? Hi I'm really gonNA open up here so don't judge me but my wife's been out of town with kids for a few days and she pointed out that I hadn't really done laundry for twenty years really like I am going to tell you this I do. He's already spending himself. We haven't even gotten you're right. I do the dishes. I clean the house. I even clean bathrooms sometimes. I loved vacuum the carpet. Sweep the floors all that but I do not do laundry. And she's like this is so funny you're GonNa be at home alone for the first time in Twenty Years GonNa do your own laundry. His I hated Vina what. They don't bury the headline headlines. You've done a twenty period. That's pretty crazy and she said that. Yeah vacuuming you've been married for. Its Invective fifteen years but we dated six years before and she's like I remember specifically when we were dating. She would do my laundry she would come to my house. Grab all my clothes and do the laundry courese guys. It's not that bad. I did it the other day because you do correctly though yeah everything. Colder top t-shirt my wife's rally around. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Good luck. We're all GONNA have to learn and do things that we haven't done before. Kaelin was like hey I was Target again some seeds to grow planet to grow our own food. Oh My Gosh. Bobby your your backyard already has the garden veggies but you have a garden spot. That's amazing bones. It's back there but yeah she wasn't sure I get some seeds kidding seeds. Come on you. How what's that. Here's the bobby bones. Show podcast highlight segment of the day. Yesterday was amy's birthday and I felt bad. You can have any party at all so I was like come to the House. And so we ordered from her favorite restaurants. I drove across town. Got It you know. And they say you can't get the corona from food like even if a person does put into food you still can't get it doesn't transfer in food so and picked it up like just you couldn't at the restaurant but you're gonNA grab ordered online when they grabbed it. I know that I felt so bad because the restaurant is right by my house. And then I got. Bobby's house and he wasn't there because he was out picking up the food and I was like this is so I could have picked it up because on your birthday. You shouldn't have to pick up your food in practicality. Okay just yeah. It was not practical but that was very thoughtful. I mean could it. I should have picked a restaurant where you know my middle name for close to Your House. The William and Caitlin made cupcakes. Yes she did and they were so good. She made Red Velvet cupcakes. Ramey a good amount of the day yesterday making. I don't think it was just like mixture together. It was like the sprinkles recipe which she adapted to make gluten free and then she did pioneer woman's cream cheese icing like she put all the stops like I was like well. This is a keeper just now getting to that. She's GonNa keep her. I mean cupcakes sealed the deal. So we'd cupcakes. The Amy brought over some game where you put headphones on and it blocks out. You're hearing you have to guess what the other person says. It's called hearing things in case you want to get a game for the house on your own Corentin so we did that game for a little bit but couple of hours bad. You can have a big birthday party but it was okay now. It was perfect. I mean given the circumstances like it was great. I left there with my heartful and just felt really good. I mean obviously my kids being on spring break and gone and kind of corn team down in Texas and their own little world like I was like. Oh we did have a plan for birthday so I kind of thought. Well I'll just sit at home because that's the same thing to do and then when you invited me over I was like okay and I was special. So thank you. It definitely helps a lot and and we didn't break the quarantine rules now right now right so we're always together right. There were no more than ten people. They're just us but it was. It was Nice. Must Amen see my dog in a while? And he's gotten pretty big my gosh. When he walked out of it was like who is this little monster getting chills comes out there like it's so heavy. Yeah something's wrong with them though. We can't quite identify it. Or maybe the medicine he's on because he had some G- like growth on the side of his face. They didn't know if something bid him or if there was some food got lodged into his jaw but they gave him some antibiotics and he just has been like biting random. Things overly aggressive or like furniture ripping stuff up. He's been peeing randomly. Never does any of this so something is not right today. I may have said the wrong day but today goes back to the vet and they're like okay. You come and you sit in the car and you give us a dog and then we'll bring it back to you because they don't want anyone close to them or in their in their place. I don't know what the deal is with the dog in this. He's just been re in a first. I was irritated at him because he's being so bad but now something's wrong with him. Yeah I think we can tell really four times yesterday on the carpet. He P Zero Times on the carpet in weeks when he saw me. He peed his body's. Not right yeah. He can't control some stuff so doing that but it was fun time well. I'm glad that you had because I had fun there. We finished fell the third episode of the Pharmacist last night. After you laugh.

They find half the credit card and then they find some cocaine on him so now he gets arrested. Not only does he have possession of cocaine. He also has the half eaten credit card which probably has to be was surgically removed or wait till it comes out. I don't know about surgically removed but when you were young if he got caught cheating you're just hold each paper because they can't prove that you cheated. They have no cheat sheet. It's like amy. You Watch these murderers shows if you can't find the body it's hard. There's no body. It's really hard to convince the money so he was trying trying.

Sure that's true and I trust the mortgage. Thank you. You are the winner. Congratulations and there. You have it Another round of elder versus millennial own show all of us right now is Dr William Shatner. Md from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He is an infectious disease. Expert Dr Schaffner. Thank you for taking time with us. Good morning good to be with you. Does everyone want to talk to you now? Almost I mean you're like the bell the ball whenever it comes note. This is what you are an expert in. I just I imagine your phone is blowing up well kind of a yes. It's a busy time trying to get out the good information. All about social distancing and how we have to stay away from each other so that the virus doesn't get from me to you or from you to me okay. So let's just start with the questions. I love this guy out. Our children a symptomatic. A lot of children seem to be able to get this infection and not become ill. But we're beginning to think that they may be contagious and they can transmit the infection. How frequent this is is still under study and everything is still under. Study a bit right because it's such a new virus. Yeah absolutely right. I say that whenever I answer any question was there anything that you studied or have studied through the years that is similar to this. Where you're going well. This is kind of the same but well but not really will yes Win Zico. I hit we had to learn all about that and back in two thousand nine. We had an influenza pandemic so called swine flu and that one was paradoxical because it affected children more than older people so whenever there's a new infection that comes along we all have to figure out exactly who the infection is attacking specifically by the way. Dr Shafter is past president of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and has served on the Executive Board for the Infectious Diseases. Society of America. Do you guys ever have like a getaway like all of you all the infectious diseases experts. Actually there's an annual meeting all these infectious disease. Docs are together. We all know each other. We're all friendly But we avoid shaking hands. There's a lot of elbow bumps that goes on. And then people reach into their purses or their jacket pockets and outcomes the hand sanitizer so it looks like a hand sanitizer conventions and that's been happening before this. You guys have been kind of living by that for a while for ages right. We'll wearing surgical type rubber gloves while out. If I'm out doing simple that help. I don't think it'll help. Because then these gloves become like your hands and they can become contaminated you know win in the medical setting when we use gloves as soon as we take them off we go to the sink and wash our hands so a lot of so hand hygiene is really the answer. Don't worry with the gloves. Just wash your hands a lot or use those hand hygiene products. You're talking about hands. I have a bunch of sanitizer. Obviously if I get to either wash my hands or sanitize which do I do Flip a coin whichever one is more convenient don't obsess about those distinctions just would frequently and thoroughly make sure you get the thumbs and the back of your hands too. If you're feeling sick at this stage when do we call the doctor? That is probably one of the most frequently asked questions if you have fever and a cough. That's the key to call and I emphasize calling your doctor or other. Health care provider. Don't just walk into the waiting room and give whatever you have to everybody else. Who's sitting there if you think that you're infected and you self quarantine or maybe even if you are what is the the distance the the length until normal life again until you can go out like what happens then It's very difficult because if you're self quarantining you don't know whether you have influenza or some other. Spiro Tori facts infection so I think the general rule is unless you've been diagnosed with co vid. Once you get completely better you can go out. Make sure your temperatures down wait for another day or so and then I think you're okay to get back into the world. You know they have. But but when I entered the world in the present time I mean six feet from everybody. Yeah which leads to my next question. Six feet social distancing. So why is it important to not be in a group of more than ten people? You know. It's simple numbers? We know that disinfection is transmitted through close. Contact Trite within six feet. I breathed out the virus. And if you're close in you breathe in and you may get some of my virus along with the air that you breathe in so we WANNA keep separated. The more people we contact the more likely it is. We'll find someone who's got coded so the notion is stay away from groups because there are a lot of people there and the chances are greater than that someone will be there who's got covert and could give it to you. Is it possible because I keep hearing these stories about if it gets warmer? There's a chance that the virus dies. I hear you. I hear you making noise. Tell me your thoughts on this. So we know that covert is a respirable virus and so is flu and flu and other Winter Spira Tori viruses. Get better that is they kind of go away. Once the temperature gets warm now. Has This new virus read The Textbook? And does it no? It's supposed to do that. Well we don't know that yet so perhaps this virus will act that way and kind of go away during our spring and summer. But maybe it didn't read. The text doesn't know what's going to do that and it's going to continue. It's one of those things where I have to say. We'll wait and see. That's the thing with this because it hasn't existed. We're waiting and seeing a lot of this stuff on the listeners. Reaching out asking you know. Should they go and get things like thereby annual mammogram or dental cleaning the heart? Doctor appointment things like that. The question is how essential is that visits the regular tooth cleaning. I would put that off if it's a routine visit like the mammogram unless of course it's a mammogram on indication. If someone's felt a lump or something like that then I would put the routine. Nonessential visits off for a while. But you have to see the doctor for something specific then of course go ahead. Dr William Shatner MD from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. An infectious disease expert is on with us. Now Eddie what would you like to ask him? Yeah Hey doc. I have a question about soap. You know I've I've seen a lot of grocery stores are out of anti-bacterial soap or just soap in general does it matter. What kind of soap? The you wash your hands with. Do you need a specific type dish? Soap right is that work everything works. Don't worry about the kind of so this virus will be picked up and killed by just any kind of soap or any household disinfectant. If you're being careful and disinfecting some of the surfaces in your house use any household disinfectant. It will work. I don't have a spleen docked. What Yeah good question. I had surgery. They removed my spleen. When I was a kid I didn't even think about this. What's up with that? The fact that you've had your spleen out does make you more susceptible to certain bacterial infections but not necessarily to covet. Thank goodness I'm free to run around and be do whatever I want. Dr Tell him no worries no ducts. Doctors no no no would go to a restaurant Dr Shattner if To pick up people making yes. I would still do that you know. The restaurants are spreading their tables farther apart. They're taking fewer reservations just so that people can be more distant and certainly pick up and delivery works. And if you're going out with one other couple to the restaurant I think that's still okay. We're not yet in a total lockdown circumstance. But don't hang out at a bar. They're closed anyway but don't hang out in large groups for any extended period of time. Avoid those groups. Well we very much appreciate you talking to us and we got listeners. All over the country. That are very appreciative of your time as well. I know you've got a lot to do So thank you so much for your time and hope you have a great day today. And you're out changing the world. Thank you all right. Bye Bye. Bye Dr William Schaffner MD. He graduated from Yale. Nineteen fifty seven. He attended the University of Freiburg. Germany as a fulbright scholar Cornell in sixty two I just keep going but he is the disease control guy. Wow He then commissioned it's it's on and on it's all the CD stuff he like you said he was President of the Infectious Disease Club. Yeah I was so helpful. Yeah it was. I liked having him on when I first got the email though that we had a phone call with him. I didn't read the whole thing. I just thought Oh. Cool William Shatner is GonNa be on the show today. Shafter just didn't I didn't like yeah. I just glanced at the email. Sounds like makes more sense respiratory or respiratory knows more than using. He's pile of stories so netflix. Just put out something. And it's pretty awesome net flicks party dot com is where you can sign up and basically you can sync up with anyone in the world and you can watch the same thing at the same time and chat about it while you're watching. Oh that's interesting. I thought you were just GONNA BUILD IT I. I saw the headline. We'll be able to see what they're watching it'll pop up on my screen for no you watch at the same time. Yeah it's you can watch and then talk about it in a sidebar chats. That's pretty cool. This is great for couple. So they don't net flicks cheat on each other. Yeah obvious again. The isolated because of the corona virus obviously before corona. But it is coming at a really convenient time Maybe they're older. That are only because of corona point. So Apple has patented system to stop people from snooping on your iphone by blurring the screen when it detects the gaze of on eyeballs. So if someone's looking at your phone and your phone is if they're in view of your phone and their eyeballs don't match up what's been approved it's going to blur the screen which leads me to this question. When I hear you say that I go hm face recognition looking at our face or is oh because if it's changing because of eyeball understanding then it must not be unlocking. It's because of our face and our eyeballs like fingerprints or they all different interesting. I think they are right. I don't know so I go. Ooh Okay so I have a list of discontinued snags from like the eighties and nineties. That are back if you're wanting them. So first of all cheese balls they were discontinued in two thousand and five. But they're back just in time for the pandemic.

But then they made like Orios Orioles Oreos and then quaker dinosaur eggs. I remember that film but I think most Oprah's discontinued because they don't want it so why bring it back? Cheese balls was the first thing I mentioned and remember. We have in the pile nuts longer or somewhere. Maybe Morgan Number twos food world. There's like now cheese bald powder you can just buy the powder. I used to eat the big cheese balls as a kid. Your hand would just be orange. Yeah they're selling that the orange stuff on your hand you go. I'm amy that's my file was amy's Kyle of stores. It's time for the good news This girl Kylie. She got her wedding dress. She picked it up from like the dry cleaner the Taylor or something and had it in her car and went to meet friends for dinner in Walsh's at dinner. Her car got stolen so car gone wedding dress gone.

Should I switch the MIC to you? Don't think so. Can you name CL- not the same person but a different clip to like? Switch it up just an understand okay story about how they're trying to pass legislation that will not allow people who had been hoarding food to bring all the food back after corona goes away for two reasons one because they wanNA stop that in the future and to they go well.

Let's go don't stop wipe until it's all gone but I saw that was happening Or they're trying to push that through.

Who HAS IT thinks. He got it from Justin Trudeau's wife who is a Canadian prime minister. Oh but again. It's not like an S. T. D. where someone probably knew they had. It didn't tell people don't even know they have it right right. I was listening to Dr Algae. Talk yesterday about. It can live in you for two three four days before. There's ever a symptom but it's living in you and there's also transferable it's also contagious before you even though you have it so it's chilling in and on you and it's contagious but you don't know you got it so it's not your fault you gotTa make that call like. Hey I got it in. I gotta let everybody know that I had recently been around that I have it. It almost feels like they call. It would say when if you get an SDS everybody. I never made no of course not so saw that this big brother cast in Germany. They had been kept from knowing. Their Corona virus was a thing it began on February six. Today's March nineteen.

Italy and full lockdown. You know we're doing we're doing here. We're in the early stages of that but last night. The housemates were given an update. Live on Air Force. Talk about a ratings bonanza.

It's time for the good news on the janitorial staff at to Vermont. Schools is being recognized for going well above and beyond their typical call of duty. The schools Alan Brooke School and Williston. Central School were closed when a staffer came down with cold like symptoms after staying at a hotel where cases of the corona virus had been confirmed. The janitors cleaned sanitized and fully and completely disinfected the entire buildings to protect the students from this parents wanted to acknowledge and thank them for their efforts because they didn't have to clean like they did. It's fast as they did so they set up a fundraising campaign. The raised over six thousand dollars for the janitorial staff. That's awesome that went through and just crushed it when they didn't need to didn't have to as well as they did. That's awesome. It's it's cool for the janitor the janitorial hardware for me to say the janitorial staff to do that but also super bowl appearance to acknowledge that even though that was their job the fact that they did it so wonderfully they should according to be rewarded for it. That was great. There you go. That's what it's all about right there. That was telling me something. Good transmitting concerning Alaska. Tom Hanks is doing not great. But still okay the sixty three year old Oscar winner and his wife. Rita Wilson remained in isolation in an Australian residents after being. Let go the hospital. They have the corona his sister. Says I've communicated on my brother. He's not great but he's still okay. That's Tom Hanks to talking about where he was like. Body aches is still. Don't feel great but it'll be alright but also how uncomfortable to be not in your own house when you're sick the didn't you. You want to be in a hotel room or on vacation and be sick. You know. Yeah I kind of feel bad for Ceylan right now because she lives in California and has for the past year or so but she has a home and they started shutting things down in Los Angeles two three weeks ago and so with that being said she's like I need to get out of here so she came and stayed with me now. We've been together for two weeks or so but she doesn't have all reclosed Oliver. You know so. I feel bad for her in a way to because it's not although I think she would rather be with me. I hope by yourself. I think that for her. That's Kinda stinky that you can't have all your stuff when it's the most comfortable time anyway. So again there are worse things or people that are having jobs now very true but the good news every single country music artist in history at times. Doing it livestream. So you can watch that home. You always have that now. It's like everyone's like we're doing a live concert. Seventy four people have done it like it's cool for a second. Now the next move is to somehow hook your instruments into aboard. That goes into the Stream. Because I can't listen to me. People playing in their bathroom anymore but people just singing at their phone. It's not the best quality. Yeah like you WANNA get pumped up now making good Quality Mike. How we did it on facebook. Live right where we had good quality stuff. Yeah you can basically get like an adapter played into your phone. Dear Artists Music Call Mike D. Dearest artists have country music. It was novel for a second when everyone was doing their their live streams. But now let's up at a level where it's actually sounds good is was cute for a second but now it's like let's let's up it and let's get a little bored and that's how we can really enjoy the music but I tell you some of them you know when you just think like that. There's no effect on your voice right and it really just shows you how good some of them are at singing. Yeah wow they're getting also shows you some of them and all that good to watch and your wow like Lou. Combs you go. Wow we've had. We've had a lot to sing in studio so we can look like crap guys can really well right there. But then some of them. You're like Oh you WANNA those boards wouldn't talking about listen. We're all just trying to get by man by coming from the bass pro shops and Cabela's studio music grow the body. Don't show keep from going crazy during this corona virus. It's just making sure you'd limit your time. Reading about the corona virus. There is a limit to or the you know. There's a a level of being knowledgeable and then being crazed by it and I sometimes walk that line where I just watch it all the time for like eighteen hours. I got into a podcast yesterday where I was listening about how this virus actually happened right. This is one of the rare viruses that goes animal-to-human. So what's happened over? Time is occasionally there will be a virus that will go animal to human and then inside the human it dies. It's not mutated enough to go human-to-human after it goes animal-to-human so basically it lives in an animal. This is what happened. With this virus it lived in an animal and from that animal. It had mutated enough to go to a human and at somehow taken a hold and then was easily transferable human-to-human rare but it does happen that happened with HIV as well It was animal to human the human to human so with this. That's what happened was it was the almost perfect ingredient of animal human mutation human-to-human spreads like crazy. So I'm listening to this podcast and I call it corona virus and I'm listening to these doctors talk about the different viruses that have done that. But a Lotta Times though. I am ready when it goes animal-to-human it doesn't it's not ready to human-to-human like oddly. He gets it and then get sick or dies. And that's there's no transfer so I'm listening. All doctors talk about it and a lot of the doctors. Don't call at Corona virus. They call it Kobe. Nineteen is. I've heard him say it so many times. Walk on how yesterday so I was talking to Caitlyn about it. I'm like yeah and covert nineteen. He's like okay. Dr Fallacy relaxed with the Kobe. Nineteen we call it. Corona virus like normal people here So but yeah I but my point is I start to get crazy. Because that's all I do. I consume myself a talking to folks and coming up in the next thirty minutes or so Dr Schaffner will be on who is one of the leaders worldwide in infectious diseases. And so we'll have that and I just WanNa get on and talk to doctors and people who have been dealing with us from the beginning. Which by the way the beginnings only in the last year and Dr William Shatner will be on his resume is is not in a wonderful way that I felt like we'll be able to talk to him about normal questions. We have living at every day. So my go. I'm going to end on this part of it. Watch the news be knowledgeable but then get the crap out of their invention netflix. Show or something Because you will turn into me and we don't want that trust. Us enough nuttiness. Can YOU PUT Dr Shepherded resume up there for me. I want to let listeners know what's coming up balanced the covert and the mindless corona. Because we start calling Kogo people start to roast. You know husband called we'll but he is military by the disturbing Lemus. Yeah we call it corona that you know even with gloves and we'll tell you what we'll we'll talk to Dr Schaffner coming up in a bit about gloves Kellyanne Nashville is on the phone. Right now who is called us? You're on the show. Kelly appreciate you calling the show. What's going on? Hey guys how are you this morning really good? What would you like to say this line? I thank you for keeping some normalcy and such weird times between the Tornado. And now this you guys have been on the air. So you've been consistent. We can wake of. Can listen to you and it's great appreciate that and even as of today you can watch us on the live cameras. You know they're up. You were in the studio. I was talking to one of my friends who works over at satellite and she was like. Yeah we're out of the studios like they're just like everybody else and you know for as long as we can. We're going to be here eventually. They're going to have US check out to or still going to be on the air but I will. At some point be broadcast from house. I was talking to Elvis Duran this morning. You know he was on the show yesterday but I was talking to him because I know it's uncomfortable for someone who comes into a studio everyday. Worked with same microphones same. It's like if you're working on a machine work you have. A different machine. Feels weird so I hit them up and let them know that his mic sounds good. Quality sounds good. He said they're having some glitches. But what else do you expect when you have a bunch of people from different houses But we're going to be going through that at some point I would rather it be later and try to hang in as long as we can but there you have actually going to shut us out except for like Raimondo. Probably going to live up here on the radio station. Yeah all quarantined myself. Here I got fridges and stuff like that. I can work out in the studio. It's GONNA work out perfectly for my life style. Remember when you used to live here though? That's what I'm it was something I did just I wanted to do years ago. We on the bottom floor of this building. There's not a lot down here except our studios wreck our little offices and so- Raymundo. For how many months did you live on the radio station I would say it was a month probably how I met my fiance very soon. After I was homeless Raymond was living at the radio station. And not telling anyone and why was he homeless? He was in between my lease ended with lunch box. And I think he was going to charge me an extra amount because I was breaking the leasers until I'm just moving out moving on. I'm not going to do another month. With you overcharge. Ray just a landlord had nowhere to go so ray was homeless. Yes so then. That's when I had to. I stayed here for maybe three four weeks. Nothing crazy and he would like sleep under the radio counters. Get Mail here here. That's wrong with you. let's see Kelly from Saint Louis. Maybe you're talking about something other than I thought about that. When did she say Kelly from Saint Louis as maybe try talking about something other than the corona virus and we do a lot to know what the most the thing most people want to hear about right now is not just a technical part of it but normal people talk about how the corona viruses affecting their lives? And what you can do about it little life hacks also I hate to call this but fun facts like the animal thing. I just told you not Super Fun but it's like Oh wow. I didn't know that really. That's what it was like when we get the doctor on a bit. We're not gonNA go so tell us about the chemical makeup of the. We're going to say what about gloves? Eddie has a question about dish soap on your hands so and also if you look and see what people are googling. The most wanted this right. I've always us. We wouldn't talk after we're talking about like friends are talking about it like listen. I mean I feel like we've got a good balance Dr William Shatner will be on. He is a professor in infectious diseases. He is an infectious disease expert. He was on a scroll down for Mike. He was on some crazy board that he was the President Areas The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases President and has served on the Executive Board for the Infectious Disease Society of America. This dude knows what's try them all out to all the diseases. Hey Terrible You know we tried last week to greet people. I try bowing. You try waving and folks waving literally they'd be right in front of me so we're trying to figure out ways not shake hands whereas seems pretty natural. I was reading this article. It says hey. Here are some ways instead of hugging or shaking hands the head salute the Cadet A. How's it going? I liked that one. Okay which I feel like that. That belongs in a certain place that we're not that's military. We don't do that ahead salute. It's respectful shoulder arms and exposure poems. Okay oh exposure palms like this. I don't know backwards Anna Passover that one okay good. I agree the long distance. Double Kiss where it's like. Don't stop that. That's like real housewives if someone does that to me. I'm like you probably drink cavern aid all day flash a big smile with the peace sign. Okay I feel like that's like Coachella and stagecoach picture instagram picture girl. The royal wave with an exaggeration. That's weird like because you're coming up to people right. I don't think the handshake will ever be gone. But I don't think it'll ever be the same I ever had. You're right I think we're probably GONNA lose about twenty five percent effectiveness a handshaking so we gotta figure. I listen to but I've been doing DABS for a long time. I don't really touch in hands before this. But even they say well even with proper hand washing their making. Sure you get the backs of your hands. Something we don't think about that can still has a home in lick. The back of my hand is my fun thing. There was a whole story to about TV. Medical Dramas love. The doctor. Shows are giving their masks to hospitals to help fight corona virus because they have a lot because they need to be in production like yeah. Wow wear them onset Yeah onset in in the warehouse. Am I saw Elon? Musk tweeting with the guy from five thirty eight yesterday. And he's like hey won't make ventilators. Tesla does space and Tesla does cars will make ventilators. That's not super hard to make but it's a bit time consuming. Tell us who needs them right now and so. I saw that tweet exchange. It's not a new story that have in front of me but I was watching. That and a lot of people are trying to get best. They can but that was interesting. That is This woman in Saint Louis who told me stopped until they still expect from us. You gotta gotTa let it go. Whatever you're talking about all day long is what we're trying to talk about in the morning right. We can't you're you're talking about this with your friend correct us do play the top thirty countdown on the morning. Joe Yeah I just feel like it's like you be completely tone deaf to not address it every now and then we should talk about those spring. Breakers they did a new store yesterday where they went to kids who are on spring break right now and the beaches are packed. There are going to have to shut down the beaches eventually but the governor say another beaches and it's like people are just melted together close. They missed that so the spring breakers like we're not going to stop partying here by Corona Corona Day. I'm not GonNa let us stop me from partying. I've been waiting. We've been waiting for Miami's break for a while about two months. How disturbed playing two three months? We're having a good time. Whatever happens happens with the bars being closed. No we'll find alternative. Fortunately it does suck messing up with my spring break. Serious serious is more serious things. They're like hunger and poverty and we need to address the weird thing about the argument a lot. It's like well. This many people have died on this. So but this is you've had lesser many people so we shouldn't were if you use that analogy. Only the thing that kills the most people period would matter meaning. You could go well. Heart disease doesn't kill people as whatever so we're worried about it. I'm not sure what the big killer is but your car you know. Cancer doesn't cause car wrecks worried about cancer so unused someone to go. Only one hundred and sixty people have died in the past month and a half year but the we should worry about you. Know people that eat sodium or people that have the real flu or you can go and focus on all these different things. And if you're using that and the only thing we should focus on is the top thing not worry about the other thing can you go like streaming at Ted talk to these spring breakers not? There's nothing they can do not listen. They're not fixable like last called mud's is dated like spring break rules Cronin drew quoted. Some White Clausen gave out the beach and just live live. You know maybe six weeks wrong with you people seriously God. That's just so idiot. Kids and other kids. Well yes most idiots and most kids are idiots right. Yeah idiot kids. That don't know any better. You just wish maybe. Their parents would have slapped earlier when they were growing up. Yeah no spring break Do anything about it. My Body brought me here. I didn't even know has come as woke up and it was spring break and it was like parties. I did and I'll get I'll adjust krona back bars close. We're going to make our own bars. Crony will be there when I get back. So why would I not worry about it right here? I'll do me in bars are closed really bad respect you. I respect it. Okay what was it Will Smith Joke. That he feels responsible for a lot of the misinformation about corona virus. Because the movie I am legend. Did you ever see that? Yeah by the way I love that movie. But you know that's something that gets spread around in that movie and everybody's dying disappearing and you know he's going. Hey you're gonNA see false facts and it's a lot of people just pulling out INFO from this movie and I am legend two thousand eight and so. He plays overall gist who survived a manmade plague that turns humans into zombies as part of the preparation for the role. Smith said he met with the Centers of Disease Control in the same group of people that are doing this pandemic now and a lot of that stuff coming from the movie dog in the movies. One what I remember off the star and then they Don't worry bad things. That was more Olympic Song. They would sing in the bathtub and sing that song special back in the good old days when the Real Anna size about it you know. What are you into we? Now Find Out. What a husband do they put on all right? What's the disease tonight? Never going to survive tonight. You're me you come out tonight baby. Or what what do we get to? That never really came out pulls out his little Spanish guitar tonight. Is the Spanish flu back when it was just fantasy fiction? George Are Martin. Who wrote game of Thrones? Yeah is using this time to finish. Game of thrones. Oh yeah ever finished. Nettie not. The show wants to show no but only because people love it. Does this. You know I love that show. I. I'm like you. I just feel like there's been too many episodes already that I'm not catching. Hey all like happy about whatsoever you want. Someone started the books by your excitement. Do started the book one book and his Reading Challenge. And now all the sudden. He's Mark Twain. Anything around here. Nope clearly listen. He put on. Scrubs husband comes out with girls I could Dr Clairol Room to bowl show on with us right now from her house. Quarantined is Morgan number. Two Morgan people want to listen to the show today.

Yeah the Athletic Program May Jerseys for the show and named Eddie had a run in with someone as he was wearing one fans and it was a little awkward all right what else streaming service having watched parties. So you can have with your friends here practicing. And specifically we're talking about the netflixing. Yeah from the pile yeah. It's a pretty cool thing checked out on the pile. Is it weird to listen to the show every every morning and not be in? Studio Morgan or no. Yeah Super Weird. I feel like I'm missing things I you know. I'm getting into full experience right now. And what is that? What's the full listener. What can we do better at? Yeah how would you rate this more talk from you guys? I think People WanNa hear what's happening with you guys more than they do about anything else so just the more you guys talk about your lives better off in. How do you feel about the talk? Music Ratio podcast is not GonNa hear that the music but like when we're doing the radio show live. Do you feel like we should talk more play more music. She's got gobbled up my corona cutting on go ahead. I think you should talk more because I listen to the livestream and watch the livestream so getting that experience and there's a lot of silence sometimes because we're on commercials or few Dick the definitely more talking listening on the Internet not on the radio okay. Another experience 'cause you probably have to go sit in her car. True that's true. I mean if you're home you're listening on iheartradio APP or online and then like to keep people have radios in their house. I don't know I don't know. I don't know Morgan Morgan number.

What's in your wallet, Capital One and a? Tried passion. Then patterns re of college football leaves here. This is the Paul finebaum show. Our to podcast. Second hour has arrived. And it was a pretty eventful. I our with John Adams calling us from Knoxville welcome back to the program. We'll talk to Seth Greenberg about some college basketball games tomorrow. The big one, of course in Knoxville and really excited to welcome Jordan Davis. So the program a big time country music star he hails from north west, Louisiana. In other words, he's an LSU fan and Jordan first of all thank you very much. What a pleasure to welcome you to our program. Good afternoon. Absolutely, thanks for having me on Paul huge fan. Well, thank you. Let's say it's just kind of take the I mean, obviously, a lot of people know, your music, certainly country music fans. No your hits and what you've done, but let's start with the beginning. I if I understand correctly, you grew up in Shreveport, which is a pretty good music town in and of itself. What were you always interested in in music growing up or did you have other go ahead? Now, what was it was kinda, you know, my mom was very valid in like church choir. So you know, watching my own play on Sundays and Wednesday nights. And my dad, you know, plagued ITAR around the house and actually my uncle was a songwriter Nashville and has sauce cut by Tracy Lawrence. I had successes songwriter. So it was definitely music with something on new, you know, from a very very young age. Some yet started young and lucky to still be doing it today. No doubt. And I'm sure I mean, I've never done it. But I mean, you've had some some big hits and and some big success. But that it that is not an easy field to be successful in. What was it like just making making the entries into national? And I'm sure people telling you what you could do. And and what you couldn't. Yeah. A whole lot more. What you couldn't? Yeah. You know, I right after graduation. I moved to Nashville would really just planning on writing songs, and and trying to get songs cut by other artists and get into the radio, you know, never really had dreams of actually being on stage and singing, but I think you know, wouldn't played my first show ever. Now. This is after I'd moved Nashville already and just kind of fell in love with and I moved in two thousand twelve so it took a little while, you know, the first four four almost five years in Nashville pretty tough, and you know, bartended and doing whatever I could do to pay the bills. And luckily, you know, last couple of years we started having some success. I mean, you always you always see it. And there's you know, you watch. The award show and everybody talks about the breakthrough. And there've been songs written about it too about Colin, dads and moms and and friends from back home. But when when you finally broke through and and not only got your music recorded. I mean, you've written songs for a number of people when you when you finally got on the charts. What was it like? It was kinda sounds. It's almost something that that, you know, the goal, and it's something you want to have happen. But I think when when it happens, it, it it's almost like it's not real, you know, and it took so long for, you know, after the first one, it was it was still kinda like man, this this doesn't even feel like this is real life. And and it's still every throw, you know, when you walk in and see, you know, plaque or whatever you're kinda like, and that really, and and, you know, it's funny. I just got back last weekend. I was the grand marshal in the Marlborough. Pray Beck and Shreveport, and and to see some friends just to kind of sit around and talk about thirteen I'll believe this is happening while plane so torn with some of the people were torn with. So it is just a lot of pinch me moments. Right back to that. How is Jordan to either walking someplace or flip on the radio? And there you are. I mean, there's no better feeling in the world into, you know, especially you know, that's what I moved to town. I wanted to have my songs heard radio. So it never gets old. But never does. You know, I hope that something that, you know, no matter the success is you know, that are that hopefully still to come. You know, every time you hear something that you love as much as we saw writers making songs and you get to hear them Brady over here. People Lebanon as well. The best deal in the world talking to Jordan Davis. So so I buried the lead you grew up in Shreveport sports fan. You went down to Baton Rouge. So kind of take us through that part of your life. Because as you know, this is a sports show that hears from fans all over the country. So I know fans not only from LA shoe, but everywhere else would like to hear about your loving and devotion to your LSU Tigers down, man. I mean I bleed purple goal. You know, it's a those were say those are the best years of my life. I think a victory lap and a half. But it was you know, Baton Rouge is such a special place, you know, obviously athletics. But but also just the university in general. And and and I just did a whole lot of growing up. I think everybody in college. You know, I think you know, the, obviously go there for education. But I think you you find out a lot about yourself in school. And and I was very very blessed to be able to say I'm alumni, Greg university like LSU and also think that we we the best college town in the country, so that doesn't hardy too. But although I gotta say I was in Athens last night. And after does a pretty good job after that's a really cool town. Yeah. I mean, I I would have to agree with you on that. And and as you know, it's a big music town as well. Yeah. But we played a Civic Center down there. But a couple of months ago, we played the George theater, and man is really cool gets the saw a couple of football players out there. I think from was out there, which is really cool and. Man. There's just a just a good night. So when you when when you do appearances that year in Athens, a little bit of robbery between LSU and enjoy Jimmy do you wear your your school colors on your sleeve, or do you try to you try to be a little more neutral because there are a lot of there are a lot of there are a lot of music buyers out there the. Right. You still you wanna you wanna show your loyalty to university? But you also want to record. No, you know, I so I actually played the Georgia theatre the week after LSU be Georgia this past year and we played on Wednesday night. So I couldn't help it say something about it. But I was very, you know, like, hey, you know, y'all got enough we get all this week. You know, and I I feel like I lost a few people there. But you know, I'm a proud tiger. Man. I you know, and I was proud of that victory. So I try to turn it back. But sometimes sometimes I can't I'll take a quick story. I Taylor Hicks who did the the song for our program one American idol fourteen years ago, and as you know, you you you're trying to get people to vote for you from every walk of life. And he he actually pulled this off even though I knew differently being afraid of his he he made Auburn fans in Alabama fans think he was a fan of both schools. I'll tell you. It's tough. Anybody one and he had this support of everyone. But so Chevy. We'll new you're on tour right now. What's what's it? Like, I mean, you hear you watch the movies. You read about these tours? I I know they're they're fun and and rewarding. But they're also I would think quite a grind. Yeah. They're pretty girl. You know? I think the thing about it too. Is it's a whole lot of you know, hurry up and wait, you know, you load in early in the morning, you know, he while the buses driving a lot of times. Luckily, we're in at we're in when and toss them nights of the dry, whether it be bad. So we got to sleep the bus park for a while. But you know, you wake up you load in and you kinda just try to find things that keep you busy. You know as a songwriter. I ride a lot out here. And and try to stay say so try to go work out a little bit. And and just kind of you know, you know, we start VIP's and start doing, you know, little acoustic shows like four thirty so and then we play at nine. So it's a it's a long day. But man, I wouldn't trade it to the world love it. Happy up have to be playing shows. Tell us about writing music because I mean, I've gotten to know some songwriters, and you know, sometimes they can go into a go into a studio, and in crack it out or sometimes they're walking down the street or in the middle of the night. I mean, where do you get your ideas? And how do you compile it and make it into a song? I actually read a lot about my favorite song writers and kind of what they did. And you know, one of my favorite ones is it sonar everywhere. You just gotta find them. And you know, I get some people talking from some of the stuff they say, I read a lot. So a lot of times through books. I'll come across something. No either. Some you know, some of the idea or the way somebody where it's something. And then I'm always kinda just homing melodies. And and I hope that those two intersect at some point, and and it turns out to be you know, good, but also rilot through. So I have a lot of friends that that are great songwriters as well. And and they bring a lot of ideas. But yeah, I mean, it's something that you know, as a songwriter, you can never turn your brain off your heavy lifting to see to see where the next idea is gonna come from. Growing up. And even when you got started who are your primary influences as a songwriter. See I'm not. So my dad was you know, like, I said he slider and love to play the guitar on house that he was he's a Jim crow. She John Prien office fan. So I was probably the only six year old kid running around saying Coasties imprint. But. So, you know, I'm glad that I had that kind of as you know, I'm still to this day. I think John best the best on know still listen to him a lot. But those were the guy that that kind of started me in so writing, and then, you know, as you grow up, and when you start hearing, John Rosario Embi pop music, you know, it all kind of just comes together. And what I think is the way I make music. So man, I'm kind of all over the board that I grew up a crochet fan myself. And sadly, as you know, he died not too far from Shreveport natural this in a plane crash of at a very young age. Yeah. I know. And that's a it's a terrible thing. I actually my freshman year college. I was at northwestern state where he played his last show practical seem, and yeah, you know, we went to he he still had a lot of great music lifting. The of they'll Sabal. Well, she's got a pretty big wooden Tamar. I know you you're all over the place, but they are playing basketball in enemy territory. You feel pretty good about the Tigers. Man. I really think you know that game was. Other sporting I've seen in a long time. And and then they get great score. I think they're super balance, you know, it it's gonna be a tough one. But I think they're gonna make a pretty good run here in a couple a couple of weeks. Jordan. Thank you. It's been it's been a pleasure. Getting to know you, and I hope you'll come back and really enjoyed hearing from you. And I know you're on the road and a lot of fans out there. But comebacks in absolute, thank you so much Paul. You got Jordan Davis big star in Nashville big LSU fan as well. And we are heading to a break right now. Seth Greenberg a little bit later on. I don't think says written any music, but he does a lot of yodeling. He will join us. More of your phone calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five to listening to Paul finebaum show podcast Evelyn is in Georgia. And you're on the air. Hello evelyn. Hi, how are you? We're doing great. Thank you. Good. I was just giving a follow call about the the lady vol's, and I wanted to give it a little bit of time to see how it's going to play out this year. Of course, it's not over. But last night was probably. It's over. I can't imagine this going on much longer Evelyn. I think it's time that it's really time that they moved on several things. I just started noticing that. It's kind of it's almost sad. It's it's I feel for the for the players in a sense. I just think it's time that they moved on. I think that you know, had some it took care. She took care of her son. She made sure that he got her. Actually, he gets her pension to my understanding. And he also is she also took care of of Holly. But it's time to move on. It's it's time to move on in in last night. Was was absolutely. That's really awful. You know, everyone. Watch a lot of these as you have. And they're there comes a point when you you may have some some gray area after last night. There is no grey area. It's it's as simple as making making a change. It's it's not really debatable any longer. And I think every hour that goes out goes on exit even more painful, I understand the competitive part of it where you want to say, well, we still have another game we have a tournament. But when you lose at home on senior night, and you lose I think it was by eight points, and you lose to the the worst team in the thing. At that point. That's when you simply call your your coach on Friday morning and say, listen, we're going to make a change we'd like to lie like for you to announce that you're stepping down and get it over with. I mean, there's no reason to let the speculation go on I agree. And I really looked. I went back, and I I looked at the actual harass. Her record was good the first three years. It looked like even though I could kinda tell it wasn't the same. But I wasn't faking it to be exactly the same. But recruiting for the most part stay that has stayed. Well, that's that's been at Tennessee, basically level. But when you look at it, I think it was two thousand fourteen and fifteen which would offend kids. That would have been not influenced. No, no recruits from Pat. No, no real legacy to that. And that's when it. Really just starts to give off very very highly. And so I think it's time to go. But I do want to say there are a lot of good things going on. And yes, you see basketball one is dawn Staley over in South Carolina. And she is actually the coach of the Olympic. Is she is a great recruiter a person, she's got that persona. And I think she is. And I think has number one recruiting class coming in done a great job rebuilding this year. And I think that's a program on the ascent. The other is if you haven't checked out, Mississippi State and. State is been to the championship game two years in a row. And even losing a lot of great players. Coach Schafer discontinues. Thank you very much for the call a good debut on herald in Atlanta is up next. Good afternoon. Harold good afternoon, Mr. fine bomb. Thanks for taking my call that old fellow ninety two that my goodness. Gotten through all that up talk to you two three times in my main purpose, I'm LSU alumnus robust that b by no that wasn't imparted game tomorrow noon in Alabama for both of us. But you covered that well enough. So thank you. Thank you very much. What if I give y'all old story about seven to nine years ago? Matt college every day, he's a young Texas AM. Yeah. Fan, and they were my favorite when I was born and raised the first ten years in Texas in January the first night, teen forty Texas AM one. Mythical national championship they beat to lane fourteen thirteen in the sugarbowl. And they had an all American fullback name jarring. John kimbrough. I think kimbro ran for over one hundred fifty yards in that game and two lane had an all American back name jitterbug Kellogg, and he ran a seventy five yard punt returned back. And so they put on quite a show if you've got a minute there take your story that was going on during those days at said when Texas say an EMS off its came up to the line of scrimmage, the pensive tackle from Texas. And yeah, but both defensive tackle across say. I don't know where you'll go in. When this ball is centered. But me, I'm getting hell outta here. Gone coming our way. This is funny. Yeah. So anyway, I enjoy your program. And I am delighted to be able to get through. Well, Harold, it was our pleasure. You have a great weekend. And look forward to talking to you soon. We're up against a break right here. We have a lot to do Seth Greenberg in the next hour, Chris Lowe and our number four John Adams started us off and your phone calls. We'll be right around the corner. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast male. Herald is up next in Lexington herald, welcome to the show. Good afternoon. Already. Paul. We were doing great. Thank you. Okay. My my thing is I like to get your comments on the game Saturday. I am a great UK fan for first and foremost, but this year's team gave me some some scares the beginning with the Alabama loss and everything and in the sea and other your alma mater. They're giving me some some reservations as well to to this team. So I hope we win of love to see us win. But just want to get your thoughts. Yeah. Listen, I think this game is entirely on Tennessee. I think Kentucky is played. So well lately that if they lose it's it's it's it's a disappointment. But they have a chance to see Tennessee again. And and they very likely will. So for Tennessee. I think it's all about momentum. And. And the psychological movement forward. And I think we heard from John Adams earlier that there's not there isn't negatively. But there's just uncertainty a little bit from team that was steam rolling down the track. So that's where I think this game is I think Tennessee, I still have a may of my mind yet because I was so sold on Tennessee two weeks ago going nuts. Not in not in the game at Lexington. I didn't think they'd win there. But I thought they would they would lose that and come back and win now. Now, I'm starting to to waiver. So I'm not concerned about Kentucky, though, is what I'm trying to tell you. Let's see. I'm just the opposite of you on your family. I'm not all with the consecutive. You know, I was scared that they would they would lose here in Lexington. And also losing a Knoxville. So, you know, I'm just I'm glad we won. But this game scares me. This game really does scare. Let's it should. I mean, you're playing you're playing in Knoxville against a team that's been number one the majority of the season. But all I'm saying is it's it's a great event. Can't wait to watch it. But it's not going to determine a dictate Kentucky season. It could help define Tennessee's though is my my ultimate point. Preston is up next in Tuscaloosa press in go right ahead. All I. Stone anything, but Johnny. Why yet if that abandoned it football? I don't and I'll tell you what. It you'd have to think it's some violation of a policy which could lead to anything when you when you factor in all the all the clauses in Johnny's contract about what he what he couldn't do the testing. So I'm guessing it's that simple. The fact that it still hasn't been revealed yet would make it would make me think he failed a test or or violated his contract in some way. I do think it's a it's a very negative sign though. And I think for a guy that's been about a five time loser and professional sports. I'm not saying it's the end because there's always with two professional leagues out there. There's there's a level of desperation. But but I I think Johnny Manziel is is close to wrecking his last car. You wouldn't think you playing that? Yeah. I mean, if I was owner one of them, John, you know, I'm sorry. You know, the af to his rights belong to San Antonio the XFL. I think would maybe more be his Scott. I mean, listen someone it's going to take a chance on him. Because in the end, he is a ratings grabber what I want him on my team not a chance I wouldn't trust the guy anywhere after all the time. So he has let people down Mike is up next in DC, my go right ahead. You're on the air. Hey, Paul good afternoon. Thank you. Good afternoon. Dear. Yes, sir. I called in about last week. I want to say it was Monday or Tuesday afternoon when tied hoops at am on the line. And he basically said the season's over if they lost. And sure enough they did can't say I thought much more than you know, as well. Here we are with really season on the line again big home game tomorrow night or to my game. Really? What do you think out of it? Yeah. I do think this is the season for that. And here's why a win by Alabama. And they can maybe end the conversation. But a loss just puts them in a in a d for whole. I mean, they got a they got they probably did more damage to South Carolina the other night, and they they probably help themselves. But now that if they can get a win here. I don't know how the community can keep them out of the tournament with a win over Kentucky and a win over LSU. Yeah. I certainly agree. And also at the time, I'll miss being ranked and Mississippi State ranked with a win. So. Yeah, I mean, do you think there's a need to? I mean, obviously, we'd probably need to go to three in the last three games. But I mean, what do you think is the is the magic number. I mean does LSU right there put us in or you think. Well, I think LSU would put you in as long as there's not a total collapse. And I think it may be enough anyway because I'm trying to remember. So after as well Auburn at home, right? Yes, sir. And then what's the other game? That's a good question. Maybe the show can help. Yeah. We'll figure it out. But I think they're in pretty good shape myself. Yeah. I think so too. And obviously, you know, a winner to the SEC term. It would certainly do it some good. Well, that's great to hear like hearing this both eat crow about Alabama basketball because listen. About why don't you yet? But but you might you might start serving it up. I like to hear that. We'll Paul you have a great weekend and roll tide. Thank you. Great to hear from. Yeah. Here's it's LA shoe and Auburn. And then at Arkansas the Arkansas game impossible to call right now. You just you don't know where they'll be so a loss. Tamara auburn's a pretty hungry team right now. I mean, I'm not I'm not putting Alabama and yet, but but I will tomorrow if they can get that win. But it's it's a little bit of a tricky finish for them. Let's continue with more calls. They five to four two seven two eight five Nick is in Valdosta, Georgia, Helen ick. Yes, they're bowl. Well, I was calling to see if you knew anything about the rush probe suspension in concert Cami. Yes. Aw. I saw were. Nobody buddy got suspended. I can't remember what it's for though. Maybe I'm just so used to seeing rush suspended. I I didn't read the article. What what what was it all about? I they haven't released again. Okay. They say when they release it. He's gonna get he's going to either resign or get ran out of town. I wanted to. Yeah. You know, I ran into a couple maybe a couple of weeks or maybe couple of months, I ran into his former principal in Valdosta. And he told me what a great job. Rush was doing. There is one a couple of tile for those who don't know who were talking about rush probes was the former high school coach at Hoover high school and in in the two thousand and four he was featured in an MTV reality show. I think entitled to a days where his defensive. Coordinator was prominently featured as well as defensive coordinator. Now happens to be the head football coach at Tennessee. Jeremy Pruitt, he ended up getting fired after having admitting to a second family, and it became a cost celeb- he rehabilitated themselves over in Valdosta won some titles and has been one of the top coaches over there. So I don't really know what this is about. But we'll say with rush, you never know. Thank you very much. I mean, you talk about a place for a high school football. I know Texas wants to talk about how important it is out there. But Valdosta Georgia, I school football is more than a way of life. It is the way of life there. It's it's the entire community revolves around it. We are up against a break. More of your phone calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five Seth Greenberg in our number three. We'll get his thoughts about Kentucky and Tennessee your phone calls or next listening to call finebaum show podcast. Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete Glades since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights. He even slept in toppy escapes. Pete practiced and practiced until one day when he was forty seven p realized he just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash. But then you heard how Geico proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out. Glad you're with us. But is up next in Alabama, bud? Thanks for the phone. Call cried and show. Good afternoon. For taking my call just wanted to actually cover a couple of different things with first thing is the book was written about coach, saving I guess five years ago the last coach set creek. I read the book. Anyway, I was that good get your review out as far as factual everything. And they're pretty pretty straight on that. And trying to is this the one I believe that money Burke wrote. Yes. Yeah. I would I was interviewed for that book. So I I'm fairly familiar with the author. I think most of it was I know saving was pretty hot about it. But that's really not surprise. Yeah. Anything he he can't control. He's probably not going to like. But I thought it was a fair presentation. Yes. Oh, awesome. The other thing I wanted to do is just kind of remind some of our callers get really extreme and been out of shape about Alabama losing the game here there. They had blessed. We are. Because in my lifetime became Alabama feeling. I was probably ninety seventy three. I remember watching the Notre Dame's Alabama Sugar Bowl when we lost that game. Anyway, I never thought I'd see the consistent level winning coach Bryant retired. Then passed we've seen. So we need to just be real thankful for that. It's what goes haven overdue for us in the win column in my other comment is going to the Cleveland Browns. And Freddie kitchens is the head. Which I love me. And you know, he didn't do great. But my question is, you know, he was passed over for the job by the interim coach that was doing we. Well, you have any idea. What transpired while? They try to hire the other guy saying he's not going to be a good. I don't know. I thought I thought the other guy let's let's Jimmy house looms team. And he knows everything. So I wouldn't attempt to try to second guess on such a good franchise. I thought the other. I thought they try remember who it was Williams who Greg Williams who was interim coach. I thought he did a phenomenal job. Especially one of my best friends that I went to Marine Corps basic training with and they ended up in North Carolina school together is Cleveland fan. He lives in Columbus sales cars. I've known over time to see we went to Cleveland Brown patriot game back in twenty ten believe it or not the Browns Wallin and not only do they win. They keep the patriots. But that right. I think it was one of the patriots four losses of the year in one of the bail five or six, but my hope state, but his ancestor loyal looks loyal things there. And you know, we blew an art form. And then they went through the drought with that last coach I think did win but win game two years. And he was yeah. You know, I I looked up at Ted television yesterday in Freddie was on. And and I, you know, I still have I have to say I'm still having a hard time getting used to the idea that Freddie kitchens is a head football coach in the NFL for those of us who knew him as a player he was a lovable guy known him. But it, but it, you know, if you ask me. Twenty years ago. I mean, I know Daboh Sweeney is surprise and people but asked me nineteen ninety seven when Freddie kitchens through that pass. It ended up that was fumbled and cost Alabama the the iron bowl if he would be a coach twenty two years later in the NFL. I I didn't have any money back then, but I would have bet every every every dime in my pocket that he wouldn't be. Agree. We oughta percent the kill do research on him. I didn't know he was a high school all American. Freddie came out of was it Etewa at high school against in. Yeah. When I mean, he he was a big time prospect, but album was so bad back. Then that you really didn't see him in his, you know, he didn't he didn't have that many weapons around him. We don't want were not ninety six game. He played at clutch drive that made all about let me correct myself. Yeah. I'm sorry. I forgot he played in ninety six. I was thinking more in ninety seven. Say you're still y'all hate him so ago about. Yard into the go poster that joker got up. And I thought it was I guarantee you he had plenty of he has a couple of weapons on that team. Yes. He did. But anyway, I was just curious about that in about that Cleveland hope he does. Well, and I I'm a big fan of Friday. I mean, I mean, he's just overcome a great deal for those who don't know the back story it's worth you'll you'll hear about it. Thanks for the call. But really interesting thoughts there John is in Georgia on a Friday afternoon. Hey, john. Hey there Paul thanks for taking my call. Thank you wanted to add something to your rush protests discussion. Yes has been the high school coach and conflict county high school over in Molterer. Oh, you're right. You're absolutely right about that. So. Okay. I think for the last ten years or so. Yeah. No. I I did I did that get that confused because bell dasta about dasta high is another story and itself right there in the same region with right cop accounting. Okay, ravel's. But no, gosh, he's not about to. No. And I knew that. But I mean, I I have been through Valdosta on a Friday night. And I I would put that atmosphere in Valdosta up against any in the country. Absolutely. They call it winters Ville. Yeah. No again for all the people in Valdosta. Please accept my apologies. All right. Okay. Yeah. You don't wanna get cau- quit county in Valdosta. Confused. You're you you you'll you'll end up with a broken nose and that part of the country Craig is up next in Alabama. Hello, Craig welcome to the program. I didn't pal we're doing great. Thank you. I am calling. I am calling from high a grain Alabama again. I've called you last week. But Dr Phil hi, right? Right. Right.

But but I think tomorrow that bowl is going to be you'll be ready for them. And I wouldn't count Tennessee out the rest of the year at all not at all. Okay creek.

Phantom Power: Sounds about Sound

Ep. 5: Ears Racing (Jennifer Stoever)

"This. Is. Phantom power. So. He is racing. Race. We think of it as a visual phenomenon. But race as sound to. Hey guys, welcome back sisters. Everyone. When you heard those voices, did you give a race class, perhaps some kind of s Ignatius of character, and if so why do we do this? Where does this discriminating ear come from a MAC? And I'm Christiane phantom, power. We listened to race or to put it correctly, we examine how we are always listening to race. Our guide is Jennifer Lynn Stover, associate professor of English at the state university of New York. Binghamton stover's, the author of the sonic color line race. And the cultural politics of listening, a book that argues that white racism depends, just as much on the ear as it does the I she shows. How listening has been used slavery to distinguish separate black and white, and how African American artists, and critics like Richard. Right. Lead belly and Lena Horne have identified critiqued, and pushed, the boundaries of this sonnet color. Chris, when I spoke to Jennifer, she reminded me of a story that really shows how high the stakes of this kind of listening can be. I talk in the in the opening of the book about the case of Jordan Davis. It happened November twenty third forty seven year old Michael Dunn told investigators he felt threatened at a gas station part side by side with an SUV full of teenagers the alleged gunman complained they were playing their music too loud. Darden's fans were playing hip hop at the gas pump. They're driving. They had their music on. They were getting gas gas stations in theory. Transitory shared space, where we all come in with our music. We pump our gas, and we leave the tech say done confronted Davis, who was in the back seat and told him to turn the music down the white man at question felt a proprietary access to the soundscape both it if he decided it was too loud. It's too loud for everybody there, his sensibility should be catered to that there is a way that gas stations should sound and hip, hop is not part of that. And when they said. No. He saw that as, as aggression. Dunn's attorney says his client thought he saw a gun so we pulled his own weapon and started shooting shot into the car. Hiring. And killed a young young man. Investigators never found a gun and the teens car. In her book. Jennifer Stover has term for the way Michael, Dunn heard Jordan Davis at that gas station back in twenty twelve. The listening ear. They're listening ear helps us get what's really happening in a case like that, the listening ear is a term that used to think about the way that racial is listening practices come about the way that they create over time I was also trying to think about how whiteness in the US has become aligned with citizenship. What it means to be a full citizen with all of the rights and privileges thereof and have them be respected. And the this has become soldered to not just a white Visu -ality, but a white way of being in the world. And where does this white way of being come from? At times it's a form of distancing. It's a way of have drawing a line between what is music, and what is noise and putting say hip hop on the other side of that line. Admit to you that you're going to have to get people like geez. E R, Konya, west all of these gangsta rappers the nunc it off and then not just doing that. But then associated the sound of hip hop with a. Long history of stereotyping of black masculinity, as dangerous as outsized as listen to me, you gotta get with. All right. They idolize these guys with the hats on backwards and then the sound itself becomes a stand in for talking about black masculinity, and excluding black men from neighborhoods from equal treatment under the law, and the terrible rock, rap lyrics, and drug and all of that are moment is shifting now and I think we are having more overt. Racial threats but say three years ago conversations were being had through these, these sonic codes. And so part of what the book is to kind of expose when we talk about hip hop as being loud, and as as being culturally, when we hear these conversations about about hip hop. What are we really talking about these gangsta rappers? It's the athletes. It's the tattoo guys. So this, the, the listening ear is also very for, for white people. White men in particular very kind of proprietary. It's about the imposition of power. I think the thing that I appreciate the most about your book, is that it addresses this, this, racial dynamic, this, this kind of judging by listening that white people do something that I think any American really no matter what their politics are. They would at least admit that this does exist. Right. But when it gets discussed at all, which is, is pretty rarely. Generally gets reduced to this debate about Ebonics and so called standard speech. But what you seem to be arguing this book is that we use a prejudiced and even, you know, white supremacists form of listening that involves way, more than accent, or dialect, and that this actual type of listening is central to American racism itself. So maybe could you talk a little bit about your concept of the sonic color line. And what that does. Yes. Thank you. I think that's a really excellent interpretation of, of my work and yeah. I think that the why I chose that title drawing on do voices concept of the color line was the way in which this on, it choline brings together and helps us understand the linkages between the prejudice listening that happens in terms of speech in terms of musical production, musical, taste musical. Desires, and also the way in which we think about soundscape and space and really the sonnet color line, ultimately becomes a way to understand how we create spaces that are exclusionary America's free, and we have these legal legal protections in terms of space. But if race exp. Variances of race and racism are internalized through the senses. We all walk and experienced space in very, very different ways. Eleven women kicked off of a wine train Napa Valley after complaints. They were being too loud. But the women say we're not booted for being rowdy. They say they were kicked off for being black. We made it y'all look it as we ready to get on the wine trade, what started as joyful event for eleven African American book club members quickly grew sour even before they left the Napa wine train station, and she said, to us, I'm gonna need you to lower your your, the noise level needs to come down a little bit because you're being offensive to some of the other passengers. So forty five minutes into the trip they were told they had to leave when would be scored an off the train. And when that happened a further indignity, we had to walk all the way through all the additional five cars to be able to get off the train, so they took us, and they paraded us through every single car with all the passengers watching us, it was humiliating degrading, and that's the part that I will never, ever ever forget. It can say that. It's open, and that it's, it's diverse in its excessive oil, but because of the way that experiences of sound are can be. Fractured can be very different. These spaces can can be very actively exclusionary toward people of color in ways that can be hidden or covered over. And, and so I kind of started they're like, where trying to understand where we're at in the contemporary, moment and needing to go back, historically, to to document and trace that. And so we tend to think about sound is something that just is in something. Yes, sounds a certain way. But what you really emphasizing here is that we, we all listen through these ideological filters. Right. So as a as a tar player, you know, I think about this, sometimes in terms of like affects pedals, right? So we list we listened through these different. We listened through these different distortions and delays. And we don't really realize that we have these things in our signal chain. Right. We think we're listening to clean natural signal, but there's no such thing as that. And so, I think a couple of questions for come to mind, like, I what, what do you want white people to do with that knowledge? I guess we could just start there. Like what kind of intervention would you like to see your yearbook make with, with white folks? Has a really important question. I mean I as you put it right. Just this calling attention to the fact that listening is not a natural process for folks at work, and sound cities. It seems very basic right in some ways that's the foundation of of our field. I'm going to I'm going to paraphrase Hari through. We just finished teaching the book, white tears with my class. And, you know, there's a point where he says, whether or not you believe in raise race fines, you and I think this is part of it, right? That the book is, is written to counter color, blindness, and the ideology of color, blindness, that, if you don't see race quote unquote. You know that it doesn't exist that, that there's a certain elements of white people often very liberal white people that don't no longer believe in race. And yeah, racist been definitely. It's been proved as a. A scientific fiction for over one hundred years now, but the materiality of racialism nation is everywhere, around us. And so getting white people to not imagine themselves at the center of the human experience that the way that they here is not the way everybody. Here's and that the way that they here is impacted by raise is impacted by this deal of what whiteness is, and how to inhabit whiteness, one of the ways, I think that sound at least in terms of producing white racial identity works more powerfully than vision is because it allows a feeling of whiteness, that, that it makes whiteness and race real four white people rather than abstraction, the way we talk about Visu -ality, and races often that whiteness, is invisible that it's a racist marked onto. Two other bodies, but with sound and hearing in white ways, and sounding in white ways, it actually makes it this very material experience because it's been so associated with Americanise. The era is the human organ public speaker is most likely to try to impress as he makes the speech and naturalized this way. The, the white way of hearing has in America for many decades. And if not, you know, a century and a half or more, the, the way to be a human people can be interested in new ideas when those ideas are expressed in well selected words, did you ever consider how many jobs depend on your ability to express yourself to a group of people? Whether it's the former project. On a judge on the bench. Or a salesman. It important to be a good speaker. And when you speak, well, you get along better with people. Whether it's persuading them to come along and have fun at a wiener roast. Or trying to be a better citizen at school or in the community. And so challenging that and getting an opening of multiple perspectives, and multiple interpretations of the same sound is is really important. Even like so the idea of quiet neighborhood as the goal. The suburbs. There's a way that that race in class meet in that and that Brown nece blackness is associated with noise and sound. And the way that neighborhood soundscape are policed. The way that noise complaints are called on neighbors that often start a whole chain of potentially dangerous legal legal implications and problems. These, these conversations need to be opened up, not imposed based on a white middle class, sensibility, and so really kinda shaking up and realizing the, the partiality of white listening for white listeners is it sounds simple. But it's actually quite difficult to do a work on that in my teaching all the time. As a literary scholar, one of stove as techniques to engage with African American literature as a storehouse of historical sound, one example, being a close reading of Richard Wright. Oh, three of uncle Tom's children. Black boy, a native son. I've come to think of certain kinds of music in particular, as being sonic, traces of listening experiences, and deejays and, and as communicators of ways of listening. So I realized when I dropped into to Richard Wright's native son, I was receiving similar transmission of listening practices. An alum clock playing in the dock and silent room bed. Spring creek a woman's voice hang out in patiently. The first three lines of native some. Oh, establishing the scene through sound bigger. Thomas moving through the streets of nineteen forties. Late nineteen thirties early nineteen forties segregated Chicago. We were as readers invited to listen as hard as we can to how bigger heard the city and realizing that many of his cues and many of the most important metaphors and, and imagery in the book comes through sound that bigger can walk across the street from his extremely noisy apartment complex in the tenement. I should say kitchen really in the in the in bronze Ville and south side. And then move across the street to the Dalton mansion in the in the very wealthy, white neighborhood of their in Hyde Park, and everything becomes quiet. And this seems very natural. We've come to naturalize that inner city neighborhoods are noisy that wealthy. Neighborhoods are quiet, but what right does is to show us, right? That it's the overcrowding of the neighborhood that makes it noisy. It's the lack of protection or controls on industry and conditions of segregation create that metallic noisy nece, something that Laura Pollino, calls environmental racism, that's where the factories get put. That's where the, the incinerators are. That's where the and then when he moves across the street that this quietness is not a natural state of affairs, but it's extremely constructed. And that buffer is set up so that the residents do not encounter, or have to think about the black neighborhood down the street, but they in fact own the building that bigger lives in, and that in that invites us. Think about that. These two spaces are connected that the sonnet choline appears as a division, but it's really this, this link that we need to pick up in here between these spaces. Hey, everyone. It's mac. Hey, good here at phantom power. We are so fortunate to have generous funding from the Miami university humanity center, and the National Endowment for the humanities, and among other things this means that we don't have to implore you to buy a new mattress or join us sock of the month club. If you're a regular podcast listener, you know what I'm talking about. So luckily, we don't have to do that. We do. However, have one small ask just go to tune 's and leave us a review and a rating. We'd really appreciate it. It's a great way for the people who are funding this show to know that folks really are listening to it. And it's also a great way for more people to learn about phantom power. Thank you. Going back now to max 'compensation with Jennifer stove. All three of the sonic color line out on NYU press. And as Jennifer mentioned earlier book, attempts, not only to explain racialist listening in America, but also to trace its history, and she does so by assembling a historical archive of texts slave narratives of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs, newspaper reviews of black and white opera singers in the nineteenth century, the writing of W, E B, do boys and Richard Wright musical, recordings radio, dramas, featuring the jubilee singers lead belly, Ledbetter, and Lena hone and buying Zaman these as texts stove shows how the sonic colline evolved, and how African Americans documented th-they. Theorized and resisted America's dominant, cultural, politics of listening. There are these different moments that you point out where it becomes really important to listen for race to, to people who are invested in racial divisions because the paradigm of the Visu -ality of race actually gets undermined. So the first of these occasions in the book is has to do with just the mere fact that so many white slave owners were raping the African American women on their plantations and you know, having mixed race children. And then we get into the, the one drop conception of, of blackness and all of this, where it becomes difficult for people to discern by the I what race someone is right. Yes. And the end the fugitive slave law, I think was also part of that, too, when the nation in eighteen fifties. At the same time was then know the entire nation was turned into essentially slave territory in part by that act, it also caused a discernment of can you detective someone slave or free by listening? And so those two things I think working together began to create this language of what blackness sounds like. Senate majority leader, Harry Reid was telling people privately that Barack Obama's campaign would be helped because he was quote, a light skinned African American with no negro dialect in less. He wanted to have one should he resign. I don't think so. The president has accepted the apology, and it would seem to me that the matter should be closed, and that blackness and race and sound then associate. And then also at the same time, then what does what does whiteness sound like so, so yeah, is son of color line, at this point, it's doing more than just defining judging what it means to sound black also. It's this subliminal process by which whites are figuring out what it means to sound white. Yes. Without without even consciously thinking about it. Yes. Yes. Absolutely. And this happens a lot in, in music and said, he's of music that when we talk about recent sound, it's about blackness. It's about brownies. It's about the other as having a racial, I sound, the sauna color line is doing other kinds of work, right? So now it's not simply a way of sort of disciplining and identifying black bodies and black voices. It also becomes this, this way of essential ising them. Right, like this, this way of making them exotic of sexual Leising them of making them profitable to white people. So I'm thinking here about. The great musician. Huey Ledbetter better known as lead belly. And his relationship with the folklorist and record producer John Lomax. Can you talk a little bit about their relationship? Those two men. Well actually wanna start with with lead belly and he actually hated that nickname. And that's why in the book, I most often talk about Ledbetter and use us his his name because that nickname was given to him in prison and Lomax insisted on it because he saw. Him being his imprisonment as a kind of racial authencity, John Lomax was folk collector and grew up in Texas, and he would travel he worked for the library of congress and various other organizations, and saw himself as the great preserver of black folk culture. And Lomax quite disturbingly prison as a, as a as a way of preserving full culture that he would often travel to prisons, because the convict system, which really is an extension of enslavement, and new form of enslavement where black men would be picked up for petty crimes, quote unquote, vagrancy. It's cetera et cetera. And then imprisoned for inordinate amounts of time and then used as on a chain gang as labor. And so he would see them as they were segregated and cut off from the radio and all of these modern technologies that he felt were ruining the culture. You know he didn't like blues and jazz that, that were being played on the radio or mass produced through records. I'm actually saw these kinds of musical exchanges as corrupting this kind of purity. But then what does it mean to, to Seoul, little concern for the men that were producing these just saw them as producers of music, not as not, as not as human beings? You know he didn't do anything to try to dismantle the convict lease system. And so when he says he met lead belly there and quote unquote discovered him as a great talent. And he would often force lead belly to perform in prison gear that actually in my research, I found hadn't been used in the state of Alabama for a decade because the, the even the government at the time found it to be dehumanizing. So, you know, so Lomax felt that he was and this is where the essential ising comes in. And this is part of the naturalizing of criminality with blackness was constructing racial image. He felt he was reflecting it and representing it, but it was a very dangerous thing to do. This is the early days of something that persists to this day, which is white men, sort of assessing and determining what authentic black musical culture, is, yes, I'm feeling kind of possessiveness and ownership over this offensive image. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I, I hear it today of lamenting that African American people at turn their back on the music of John Coltrane, or whatever in favor of hip hop. I mean this is still something you hear all the time. Yes. And I mean even then in hip hop. What is the real hip hop? And real hip. Is it uses samples? Lead. Belly was an incredible musician an incredible. You know, he had as it's been reported over five hundred songs committed to memory. He really viewed himself in the tradition in the south of what's called a song Stor that he would travel from place to place that he would be very attentive to his audience, and play songs that, that would that they would relate to that. And he would switch this depending on where he was. And, you know, he very much wanted to be a pop star in the vein at the time of gene, Autry and had his own goals, and desires and really wanted to cross musical boundaries, but was bound through a contract with Lomax until until nineteen thirty nine and this contract actually prefigures, what are called three sixty deals now in the music industry, where Lomax had control over where he played lead belly couldn't book shows without low maxes permission. In addition to the fact that Lomax made the lines, share of the profits that this idea that he controlled lead belly's entire image and entire that, that doing anything that low maxima deem in authentic was was him really again. Exerting this kind of back to the listening ear. This proprietary ownership over lead belly, the person not just lead. Billy, the music. The music becomes a way to express this desire need for control and containment of, of black music and through this kind of fetish ising. And that I think, is what really shifts from the nineteenth century into the twentieth century. Is that consumption of blackness for the white listening ear becomes about a certain kinds of pleasure, that in the nineteenth century was a different experience at there was almost immediate dismissal of, of black music as noise where in the twentieth century, if it's noise for many people, it is this, it has profitable currency because of because of the sonnet choline, and because of the pleasure for white listeners of transgressing without losing their position in, in the racial hierarchies in the of the US. Ledbetter goes on to be covered by pretty much. I mean it's a standing how influential his music was Frank. Sinatra Led Zeppelin did a version of his song, Gallup poll. And if you listen to lead belly's original. Kind of blows Jimmy page away, and he's doing it on a twelve string guitar, which is seems so difficult. Yes. He got into. And there's been a lot of discussion in England about the, the skiffle revival and that was part of the circulation of lead belly lead Billy's music to England. George Harrison cites him as also plays a twelve string play the twelve string sometimes as, as an influence in that regard as well. And none of which monetarily are enough. I'm lead belly has very poor health died young. He was very much on the economic edged his whole his whole life. And so he never really saw any kind of I mean, props are amazing. You cannot eat profs though interesting because glow mix was attracted to lead belly because he heard something from the past, right? Or at least he thought did but lead belly's influence shows that he was playing something from the future. Right. Like even into the grunge era, like. Ervan covered where did you sleep last night? And if you just listen to the guitar part on that song it just sounds so modern. Good. On gone. Cool wind. You call a week and you need a moon you. You. That it completely makes sense that a band, like nirvana would use it. And cobaine said that lead belly was very influential on, on the band and, and, you know, and I'm I'm of the same generation as Cockbain, and I remember being in high school and sort of obsessively listening to lead belly and Robert Johnson records in high school. And, and hearing something that, you know, felt really true to me or in vital painful. Authentic. Right. And, and this is where I get some confusion because is this a way that white men have found empathy and resonance with flak experiences? Or is it actually a Rian stance? She ation of the sonnet color line away of marking what is supposed to be an authentic. Black sound. I'm just asking for a friend here. Yeah. And I, I mean, there's, there's some question about, you know, back to part of the sonnet, clear line is about the commercializing of, and the, the, the capitalizing of, of black pain. What happens when you turn black pain into into a commodity, and, and that it's it and I think that's, that's, that's really central to this authenticity is a form of arrest and a form of limitation of, of forcing kind of boundary, and, you know, but it's also way of bracketing, right? If you can bracket that power is from the past. Then it raises the the the contemporary connections. And it's, it's, it's a challenging question like a say in the book, and I actually dedicate at the beginning, I to the book to fish bone who is a fishmeal. Oh, I love them to in like they, I mean, they were as I say, they're like my first and. Donkey is critical race. Theorists. A good deed. But the white. Chase y'all tonight. Tonight. Why? People that, that through fishbone and the way that, that listening to fishbone opens up my ear to not just many different kinds of music, but the potential and the for fusion and connection between them. And that's the very reason why the music industry failed fishbone in the sense. It was never consistently Scott or phone or heavy metal or you know, the band really found these points of intersection. And merging, the sounds that we can't label you and therefore we can't sell you. So so music has that, that potential and it because it has that potential to open up listeners ears. This, why this on it klew lanes there. It's to contain that power that that music has. I want to skip forward to this second moment when the listening ear and this sort of listening for race becomes very important. So, so there was the earlier stage during slavery and trying to discern if you couldn't discern visually what race someone was trying to listen for race. But then we get into this new era, where we get the scientific knowledge that race really isn't biological. And yet this sort of ironically actually seems to recharge the sonnet color line. So you've mentioned color, blindness earlier in our discussion, but can you kind of talk a little bit more about what color blindness is when it when it began and how it kinda amped up the listening ear color, blindness is the, the belief and it's the reigning yet. Sioe Mian wine at the, the reigning racial, formation of the US in the late twentieth century, and up through our contemporary moment, is the, the idea that race can be fundamentally ignored comic grazing. But I just don't see race and that met at the metaphor for color. Blindness, right? Is then we, if we can not see skin color as a factor, then it follows that a race free society or a society free from racism wool merge, the least racist person here. Okay possible. And that as a matter of fact that creates an Abel's a new layer of racism to emerge, and in fact, a more dangerous one because then you, you can no longer talk overtly about race. You're only telling yourself that, so you don't have to think about racism or confront your own prejudices. The only way that the colorblind is could take root as an ideology, is that that race has to transfer and move somewhere else. And that if sound allows racism to do that. If we can't, you know, racial profiling is only thought of as visual entity what does it mean to stop a car because of the kind of music that's playing or what does it mean to to use to use accents to determine citizenship? This notion of color, blindness. It's an extensively liberal move, right? But, but it really turns blackness into a choice that's the wrong choice, right? And yes. And something to listened for it becomes well. Are you going to join the great middle class standard way of being or aren't you? And if and if you choose not to there's something something wrong with you. Yes World War Two and the Cold War was an essential part of this realignment of kind of body and, and voice, that, that what we think of color, blindness as a nineties thing or even a seventies thing that color blindness was part of the, the effort by the, the American government to recruit people of color to the, the armed forces that there is a kind of inclusion that. That's offered through color blindness that if we phrase his no longer factor than everyone could be American. But at the same time, skin color, no longer bars. You in visual appearance, no longer bars you from being American. But, you know, maybe everyone can sound quote unquote American, and then it becomes about this kinds of disciplining of the voice disciplining of listening to, to here. And have those kinds of middle class since abilities. And, and yeah. This idea of kind of standardization through voice speech music, musical taste. Starts starts then starts in that Cold War moment. Oh, says you wanna talk so very badly. I guess I'm not gonna have much trouble getting talking to this machine. I was going to be the first try to out. About morality. Matama morale around now tomatoes, suppose you step up in you? Gainst morale is because he don't talk good English. And has nothing to do with one of the things that I think, is so interesting about your writing on this is that you connect this to technology of the radio. And so this is another one of those things where just like listening. You know, we generally think that technology is neutral, but you really think a lot about the way that radio fed into color blindness, and this standardization of speech air, they're few representations visually literary Lee in the radio research on black listenership and, and then thinking about, well, wait a minute. There's this overlying you know, very, very entrenched discourse on the thirties and forties. As the golden age, quote unquote, golden age of American radio from a humble, beginning in Pittsburgh garage to the sumptuous studios of the national radio networks. In New York, Chicago, and Hollywood. These are the years, we refer to as the golden age of radio. It's important to understand how and why that came about, and how and why it's also seems to perfectly align with the worst and most segregated both legally ended in defacto in, in US history. And so, how can we then refer to think about this as a golden age, given this, this level of, of exclusion, the make America great again, campaign, I think is very much tied to these nostalgic images of white radio listening in the in the forties. And fifties. How were black artists, actively excluded from, from the radio and not just actively sloughed, but their their their performance and their, their representation tightly controlled. And the fact that the belief in technology as neutral, as just something that is, and thinking about radio itself, as you know, there's a huge discourse about radio as blind and connecting that to color blindness that you can't see race over the radio and that it's this open equitable space and a lot of the Cold War. Propaganda was saying exactly that like thank God. Our airwaves are free and open. They're not like Germany, but also really ignores the way in which racial hierarchy was driving the industry. And the way that the industry was thoroughly segregated down to separate musicians unions for black and white musicians. Black musicians did not get nearly as much work as white musician. Many many people when I give presentations or teach are surprised to find out, how black actors the dialect was scripted for them and the black actors many black actors were quote unquote tot to this, this way of speaking by white producers, and that there again, I think that price of admission of being, you know, getting working roles on the radio with having to having to speak in dialect, and this very dialect that no one speaks, having to speak, this white imagine language of what black sounds like. Leeann. Miss this modern, I'll be able to take it easy. Take it easy. Don't get so excited. I-love-you relax. I go out again. That's ridiculous. Well, she's got to learn the controller Phil. Good for you. Cool off now. Seek what you said. What I mean I had when you hear what happened. Again, normalizing and naturalizing it for a huge swath of, of American listeners, so microphones weren't weren't colorblind, as so many of the, the radio industry executives seem to feel, but the belief that they were is really telling and it's shaped a lot of how we've come to understand race through sound that way, will infect the invisibility of the performer charges. The racial is listening, right? You're listen more closely for race because you don't know you can't see what race the person is. That's exactly it. And one of the great fears of radio producers was that black performers would be indistinguishable from white performers. And that's why wonderful Smith was fired from the red Skelton show that his voice because he had to slip. It was a sketch show, and he was slipping in and out and changing character so often, and that this racial boundary, this all RO racial boundary was not could not be reliably maintained. And he was also himself asserting his agency and constantly, challenging it. This was shows color blindness to be ally. Right. Because fan. Here is that if you will just, you know, pay the price of admission and speak correctly and behave in a in a Bush, y middle-class way, then then we will ignore your race and, and all will be good. And then you, you get performers who actually do this, and then that becomes so threatening to white identity that they have to be fired. Yeah. And I mean, in fact, the dialect from the very beginning Gavin Jones is a scholar, that has been been working on this for, for many years, and white southerners, and blacks otherness sounded alike, almost indistinguishable, and that's exactly where the dialect comes into separate the sense of white and black to draw those boundaries, and to enforce into to create the sense of a difference. Oh, no. There's no sun up in the sky stone. Lena Horne, she's middle-class New York Brooklyn. And she was one of those artists that challenge the sonnet clear line and really challenging this enforcement of what blackness sounded like. Israel. Stall. Get mop whole self to give. I'm wary. The. Lena Horne's voice posed a dilemma in that her voice fit neither of the kind of stereotypically white, nor stereotypically black me only me. I'll let me be lonely. You won't what I love you only. Then happy with some buddy. This voice that. Challenge both of those both of those in positions it had a kind of racial fluidity Lena Horne had a kind of many people describes it as kind of coldness to her voice. That she was was a fen and was. But yet, even with this, the white press tried to racial is Lena, as a blues singer, and she was definitely not a blues singer. And by you know any any stretch. And so, what does it mean again that this listening ear then has to to label her, according to this, this racial is racial, is music, genre, and black? This nurse heard Lena Horne as a beautiful singer. And what is it mean then to kind of think about and discuss the beauty of her voice in relation to her body? And so this is a very different discourse about about Lena Horne's voice in the white press, and the black press. No one that some one is. Tend to be loop. Once you don't. Above have it to. They key back tomorrow comes by love. Joe? Mine. No. The sonnet clear line is not about accuracy. It's about an accurate description of diverse racial identities. It's actually about the reduction of race to the idea that there can be this firm boundary between blackness and whiteness, and then other racial identities than have to contend with these polls. the racial makeup and dynamics of the country are a lot more complex than this. And yet, this is where we always seem to come back. Yes. That's exactly what I mean. This isn't to say that this is the only sonnet clear line or that the that race and sound does not impact Asian Americans and indigenous peoples. And as a matter of fact, in, in this can be a point of solidarity in terms of organizing against racism, and an inequity. But yet, like you said, you know, here we are again, and how we jam the signal of this black white binary and the inequity. It's wreaked on all of us. That's it for this episode of phantom, power.

Hit but it's different different Different classification tour toward it. So we we give everything a rating like a draft pick type of deal and we'll see what we do. Is that a first rounder. Middle Round or undrafted curious curious to To see it at this hour to talk about it a little bit later. I'm guessing everybody that listens to this show. I will be so shocked if we have a whole text us and say I've never seen dumb and dumber. Everybody seemed dumb and dumber right. I can't imagine anybody not seeing that movie unless you're like one of those mulch comedy only drill. Mus. I don't know who that was three. Yeah unlike Stewart drums rooms. Oh man we were.

I mean you can be a little nervous online. Makes it because you're playing real people now? That's a little. That's a lot different when I grew up But like I like to play assassin's creed and those kind of video games Colfax but that's intense. It's like the whole time. It's intense especially now like these new games. I'll play like once a week or so. And they're like as you're playing the game bounty hunters or coming after you all the time. So it's like you're constantly on the edge of your seat by wife. GonNa play a game tonight. It's really relaxing. I can work while you play that. I like the music in the background. I'm like I don't think so is my heart gets going and I'm like it's too much I just WanNa play Madden Madden is. It's that game will get your Colfax. That game will get you favorite sports video game of all time. This is coming from a guy. I've played madden my whole life. I don't know that I didn't start buying it every year until I was in College. Probably had a lot. More time wasn't playing sports and College. I was I was going to college. But you're not very hours a day. So yeah I I started getting way more into that but now I mean it's so relevant. Remember the debate. We were having a year ago. Colfax about sports about being able to let her in any sports are boy mark. Knutson just hates the idea of that. Now it's like that's the thing I was on another webinar yesterday. Colfax and I think this is going to be a sponsor. -able item down the road. You Know Fan away connects fans fans connect enter for a chance to play Madden withdrew. Lock played on the big screen at power field. I can never remember what the actual name of the stadium is the name. Oh empower power empower their. Wouldn't that be sweet tours light presents madden one on one with drew? Lock in then you play it on the thing. How sweet with happy. I'm all in that's cool. That's a fun thing. I think they'd sport. Yeah I mean well we. We're talking about Kyle Larson the NASCAR guy that said the no word and was let go by all the sponsors. But what happened there? He's playing online. Everybody's playing online Ronda. Rousey is doing it. She's playing like the the The medieval fighting games the assassin's creed type stuff like I've been fought. She's basically giving fans chances to connect. And then they're on the on their microphones and everything and talking going through that. So what's your favorite sports video game thirty four percent. I agree with thirty four percent mad. I mean every time you fire up mad and you hear this four best thing ever coal. You're missing out. You got to give it a try. You gotta gotTa try Yo. Yeah do you even have? What do you have a console? The xbox three sixty the xbox one you do okay. Do you have a one so I? I have last year's mad and I have this year but I'm not gonNA learn you that man I will loan. I will loan you last year. Cova. I'll give it to you. Don't really have the game really. I've never gonNA go back and play an older man. What's the deal with having a new one? Every year they update the rosters. Okay usually make a tweak or two but for the most part like from one year to the next. It's hard to tell but if you were to like look at a five year span. You could probably see the difference when I was getting that. Ea Sports Clip. It was actually a clip of every. Ea Sports Intro. From like nineteen ninety-five and it's kind of funny to watch the transition. I I remember playing in like two thousand and one and the madden players were slow. It was fun I loved it but they were slow like they were all pretty slow and then. Nfl Two K. Came out and there faster than hell in that game took off like everybody loved that game. I was all about. Nfl Blitz two thousand on the end. Sixty four I remember. Nfl what was the other crazy when they had it was like NFL. Extreme or so it was like five on five. You can hit him after the play. You can knock their helmets off. I mean it was like I was crazy. Video game like to arresting flip. Yes landed on the head. That was that was approved by the. Nfl had their signs all over it. That was when we were like hell. Now it's like no don't hit him in the head with your helmet. That's a No. How are the refs on these? New Madame Games are they. Are they as annoying as they are in Henry Life? You know when you play online. They hardly ever call penalties. So you could almost tackle a wide receiver. I I like playing online. But that's another thing man it gets. It gets my heart pumping because you know you're playing a real person intense and they message sometimes and talk trash. So Yeah Somebody I. I played the other day. My kid just went down for a nap. I didn't know what to do was like I'm going to fire up the Xbox I'm gonNA play online. I fired up. I go to online play to play somebody randomly me up and I lost like twenty one to ten or something like that dude messages me. I don't even know who you are and says dude garbage. What the Hell is that assist? I like what is that about is absolutely crazy and I don't know I'm not going to reply. I don't know who you are. Plus it takes me eight days to reply. 'cause you're like scroll over a that's only one thing that's on Kenny. Is there not a faster way to do that? I don't understand why there's not a keyboard. God I can't do it voice. I just terrible with can't do either like I'll have people message me on there like that. I know what you have my cell phone text messaging me on the xbox saying. Hey WE'LL GAME. Are you playing right now? It's going to take me an hour to text. That too humid playing and I can't do it so just call me or something but it's it's it's nuts so you did play a little bit of sport. You played a few sports games. Yeah I played. Nfl let's but my biggest video games sports wise where like skateboarding like Tony Hawk underground. Tony Hawk Pro Skater. The only game even close. I've played some of those dirt. Dirt bike games stunts. Like those are pretty cool do like they redid one of those from the. What was the old one? That was like an eighty and the arcade. Oh you just had to jump made crazy jobs. And they racist ever. They did one for like the sixty four right and bike. Yeah that's exactly what it was and you could do all these fun. One of you could play soccer with a giant soccer ball and you're a dirt bike and you have to. That was pretty fun. That's fun yeah. I had a good time with that new Game Rocket Rocket League. And you told me about the thing I probably just like you're an RC. Car driving around this huge soccer field. And sometimes your car can fly. And it's actually quite entertaining. I'd be pretty fun. Yeah it'd be into that xbox One yes I have to check that out that'd be don't feed is one now only three percent of of the Hooligans are saying FIFA but that game actually I I. I've I've never owned soccer game ever but I've had friends that have had them and every time I've played them. They're really really fun. Because it's just a wide open field running around that ball hockey's pretty fun on video games to see that. Yeah Hockey's a good time. I just put Nhl because last game that came out was just NHL. Twenty twenty nine percent of whole saying that MLB. The show is second eighteen percent. I've heard I've heard great things. I've never been much into playing baseball video game. I mean I remember like in the Super Nintendo Super Nintendo. You hit the ball. Then you'd have to like tap aid to get to first base and you're tapping and you see it a little dot go up around the screen. It's like I don't know how it is that that's the last time I played but I do play Madden pretty regularly like I get into that. I think that's a that's been what. Nba Two K. Is Great but if you have to have time you have a lot of time because to become halfway good at that game you have to invest a lot of time and playing because there's so many different moves you have to learn lot. I couldn't do I if I'm going to play a video game. I'm looking at maybe an hour a week or two or something just depending and I need to be able to turn it on and just Kinda go and then be done with it much more than that. It takes me a little bit more time and I have to make it like an event. Okay three hours tonight. Locking in son's going to bed my wife decided she's doing her own thing. Okay cool I'm play in this video game and then that's it. You're like after that. I'm never doing that again. I'm so nervous and I can't sleep with you. I'm so far past. The point of looking at video. Games is like a relaxing thing to. It's not anymore. It used to be like stimulates every you have like. It's don't what it is like the older. You are becoming just better or is it. The older we get your. You have so much other stuff going on that video game is like I can't. I can't deal with this seriously. The assassin's creed game it's Odyssey. So Yeah Odyssey. So you're like a Roman Kinda guy you're running around doing stuff and then you just hear a horn blow in your house that and there's a there's a dude coming on a horse chasing you randomly and you're like what do I running around St. Helens treasure and stuff and the next thing. I know I'm running for my life. This is not relaxing to me now. I have done and then you get on a boat and you're happy you're on a boat and stuff because you don't have to do anything like they're singing share signature. Yes so relax and then suddenly you see like eight ships coming your way and it's like under attack sir. What we do. I'm like I don't know I was wanting to like nice little boat ride here. It's going to do some fishing. Maybe but no here we go. Yeah Video Games but again playing online against people like the Sports Games are fun either. I'm running the ball. I have like a Barry Sanders player. Like you could randomly get all these great players on some version of the game and Barry Sanders. I RUN UP THE MIDDLE. I get hit like Bam takes. His head off. Ball falls out a cool cow. These guys will get I do it again. Same the next time I get the ball. Fumble it again. The complain fourteen year olds or something because they don't have anything better to do than to just upgrade they're mad and players like crazy yeah so it's It's overwhelming to me. I literally can't play this game because every time I snap it. Fumbled just drop it. So that's the tough part about playing online. Is there so it yeah like? I think our demographic grew up playing video games. We'll probably GONNA play video games forever. You know like I would imagine when I'm ninety. I'm playing if I make it that. I'm playing a video game. I could see that I could definitely do that. But that's what I'll start to get good again when I'm like you're tired. I started to become awesome video games. Stay back by then. Nobody's GONNA play video games anymore. Nobody wants to sit on the couch and play. Madden with me. Control her GRANDPA. What the control. Well people give me crap you like to play with the. We like to play the wee man. I'm like why because you get exercise. You Get up and you're doing things I'm like. No I actually can go outside and exercise when I play video games like to sit on the couch with a beer in my hand and then lose. I don't WanNa get up and bowl. I can go to a bowling alley. I can't play. Nfl football so I play Madden but bowling. You know Doing Jumping Jacks. I could do that without playing. I don't but I could video game to tell me that the point madden getting most of the votes here rightfully so so the double a football game. The last one they made was two thousand fourteen and that was because of all the lawsuits right. They couldn't do it. They were making bank. They didn't put names on the back of jerseys but we all knew who they were so yeah. They've they've they changed. It may madden's dominating this thing how about this though. Guess what so it'll be the show third place. Pga Tour Two K. Eleven point six percent of golfing relaxing and fun. When you get out like over eating country club but I can't imagine playing it on a video game. Maybe snowing outside and you really itching to go golfing. Yeah maybe maybe that's probably relaxing. You just press a new idea how it works their pro. So that always goes where you wanted to get. That's true now. What I'd I have played Old Golf Games before and like I liked it when it in the sand and stuff. That was cool because it was so realistic at that time. It's like oh we that the sand like splashes that's how good I was at that game twenty two minutes after the hour. There's a lot of video game talk. We thought we have some fun with this one because East sports like it or not. That's a big one too big thing going on right now. I got some big stories though. We're starting to see the cracks in this idea that major league baseball and the players all sing coon by just for the benefit of the fans. Let's talk about what Blake Snell. The Ace for the rays had to say about about a salary reduction. We'll talk about that also. Snip snap just like that the NFL says reviewing pass interference and and really work. And do it. Wow that was fast. Could've told you that last year when I went off on a Colefax. We'll be right back. It's the whole show powered by energy. We're here with you. Keep IT ON K. K. For the latest on Kobe. Nineteen the effect on the sports scene in more thirteen ten. Kfi K. and thirteen ten K. K. dot com get. Your Day started right with up-to-date news weather and sports mornings with Gail six. Am to nine. Am Weekdays on Thirteen Ten KFI K? Hey It's Andrew Bogusch from CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi A twenty eight minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the whole show powered by energy dumb and dumber. That's that's what we're review so people who have preferred us for referred to us as dumb and dumber. I'm sure who said that. I'm just guessing at some problem. Yeah probably at some point. Colfax We're going to be reviewing that our first full on comedy review we give it a draft rating. That's how we do it here. First Round means one of the best movies you've ever seen middle round okay. Not Bad needs some work undrafted. Stay very very far away from that. So we'll talk about it coming up a little bit later into the second hour doing a think a great sponsor of the program and that's Alliance irrigation there to work on your sprinkler. No matter what color the boxes they'll insure you're ready for farming season. And even make that new sprinkler a reality if and when the time is right Camaro or destiny Gomez incursion nine seven three five three sixteen twenty one first advantage text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six now. This is going to be the next hurdle to get over. I mean you're talking about everything going on with covert nineteen and how we're going to get Get these players together and such. Are they going to be away from their families for more than a month? And that's that's another discussion raise ace. Blake SNELL SAYS. He refuses to play for a reduced. Mlb salary he said it's just not worth it. He went on to talk about. Obviously the fifty fifty revenue split proposal with the players for a corona virus shortened season in a video posted on social media Wednesday. He said he got to understand for me to go for me. To take a pay cut is not happening because the risk is through the roof. It's shorter season less pay. No I gotta get my money. I'm not playing unless I get mine. Okay and that's just the way it is for me like I'm sorry. You guys think differently but the risk is way the hell higher and the amount of money. I'm making is way lower. Why would I think about doing that? This is interesting because I'm usually not one to get picky if you don't want I'm not gonNa tell you how to spend your money. I'm not going to tell you that you should work for less money. I mean if you have the opportunity to make money do it but I mean the only thing I go to Colfax these are. These are interesting times. So are you not willing to work with the situation? Now if you're flat out worried about which there are many I guess it depends on who you ask. There's some people that are like I'm not going outside and if I do. I'm wearing masks. Stay away then. There's the other group that's kind of like I'm just GonNa keep going on my life and doing doing what I can. It is a tough tough discussion to have. I was listening to Clayton Kershaw on the Dan. Patrick show this morning and he says No. I'm ready to go and he's like I don't fault players if they feel unsafe but we all kind of knew this going in. We all agreed on it going in that we would have to take a re. We would be playing games and for that. We're going to get paid less so basically it's Snell if you give his full contract that's where I do disagree. You can't get a full contract. You're playing last games. You're playing half the games that you normally would play so if you come if you start if you're working eight hour day and you start working four hours a day. You'RE GONNA lose. You should probably lose money depending on what you do for a living. That's just how it works now. Here's was an interesting one colfax again. That's his choice. That's what's great about this country right. You have a choice if you think. It's not worth the risk stay home. What if Major League baseball have they have all their official? Say Yup safe to go. We're good to go. You have health officials national health officials say. Yeah we're going to have proper testing. Everything's good to go so it's safe. We're going to do this and if somebody gets it. Will you know then what happens is snell obligated and if he doesn't deserve penalty on his contract because wouldn't it be like anything else in this world? A player refuses to play an honor that in the contract. It says somewhere the lines. You GotTa play unless you get hurt or you have a really good excuse now if health officials and MLB all say yes. This is approved. You can do it. We have great testing. Everything's taken care of again. I still think in the time that we're in at least for this year. You're not going to hold it against a player because you're probably going to get into some trouble but it is interesting. You Know He. He's basically saying. Hey no I'm I'm GONNA get mine. I'm going for mine. That's what I'm risking. My life is what Snell said. What do you mean I should not be? It should not be a thing. It should be one hundred percent thing if I'm GONNA play. I should be getting the money I signed to be getting paid. Well see that's again. I have a problem with that Colfax because Major League Baseball. They always signed up to play one hundred sixty two games. They're not allowed to do that so now they're playing. The proposal is to play less than that so for Snell to personnel to say. Listen I don't WANNA play if can't go a full season. That's just the way too. But he's basically saying no. I need to be paid exactly what I was told. I'm being paid for twenty twenty even though there's half the games that I'm going to be paid for that you're not understanding the situation at hand everybody's being affected by this. So that's like a random again. I hate to make comparisons but in this situation. It kinda works a random worker that decides. I'M NOT GONNA go to work for this month because I'm scared to get corona virus will then and then you turn around and expect to be paid your full salary. That's ridiculous and in this case it works. You should not be getting a hundred percent of what you were promised because you're not delivering one hundred percent of what you promised and it's out of your control. It's not like baseball said we. You know we could play but we're we decided it's a personal choice. We're not going to you. Could you can't win the NBA. Shut down it was a personal choice and then it became you pretty much. Have to at this point so I have A. I have a problem with this. This is a selfish. Maybe yeah probably but it's also a misunder. You're you're misunderstanding. The situation at hand you're wanting to be paid one hundred and get you know you're you're putting yourself out there. You're going to play baseball. And and all that but man. You're that does sound selfish because you have. How many health workers how many how many people out there that are on. The frontlines. Really don't have a choice. That's their job. They have to do this so it is kind of frustrating. It's a bit frustrating and again I am very much. Do what you gotta do. If you think it's unsafe stay home but don't give me the I I'm not playing unless I'm getting a hundred percent of what I owed no. No you're playing half the games because it is. It's a national situation at hand. It's not a major league baseball thing. It's not a sports thing. It's a national crisis. Restaurants are losing employees and then in almost you know threatening to go out of business and so I do have a big issue with this. Phillies Star. Bryce Harper said on on twitch. He ain't lying. He's right Harper said. He's Hey he speaking the truth. Bro. I ain't mad at him. Somebody's gotTa say it at least he manned up and said good for him. I Love Snowman Guy. He's a beast to one of the best left in the game. Players are typically not going to go after each other in a situation like this. If you cheat yes they're gonNA go after you but this one's this one's interesting Snell. Later went on and text the Tampa Bay Times instead. I mean honestly. It's just scary my life to get covert nineteen as well as not knowing spreading it to others. I just want everyone to be healthy and get back to our normal lives because I know I miss my now if he would have just said that and that would have been the whole rhetoric of. I'm royd worried about getting the virus. Okay I I'm not GonNa Fault you for that you know I. I'M NOT GONNA be mad at you. There's a there's a group of people that are willing to go out and work and act like nothing happened. I'm not GonNa Fault you for that. You know I'm I'm asking you don't sneeze and go up and hug people right Then there's another group that's like I don't want to go outside all right. That's your prerogative but just understand if you work for me. You're not going to get paid the same amount if you're not working. That's kind of where I draw that line. You can do whatever you want. In this case you can stay home all day and watch. Everybody loves Raymond episodes until your Heart's content. But don't expect to be paid and that's my biggest problem with Snell in this situation is he's not just saying he scared to risk his life. He's saying I need to be paid one hundred percent in order to do it. You're not going to. It's just not gonNA happen. Finally he says I'm just saying it doesn't make sense for me to lose all that money and then go play and then be on lockdown. Not Around my family now again. I get that if you're if you're reason is I am fearful of the virus. I'm fearful of getting it and bringing it to my family. I'm also fearful of not being around my family now. If you're asked to be away from your family for a month I get that too and I also get you saying if you're asking me to be away from my family for a month I WANNA be. I WANNA be one hundred percent. I understand that reasoning would've worked for me but just the mere idea that I'll play but I need one hundred a guy again. Even the risk of being away from your family. That's that sucks. I hate that I would hate to be away from my family. I hate to be way from for more than eight hours tough when I get home. I'm ready to see everybody so I can imagine it but I can't fairly say. Hey you know what I want to be around my family so I need one hundred percent if you don't WanNa play don't play that your choice but don't don't act like the MLB owes you something. Don't act like they owe you one hundred percent because we're not this is not this is the real world now. This is something new that we're in. I'm not going to do is the new normal. This is the current situation that we're in is. You're going to play half of a baseball season. That's what it is if that. So why would I pay you one hundred percent again? It's like a worker coming to you saying you know what I'm scared the virus I'm GonNa put in twenty hours forty instead of forty but I still want to be paid the same amount. No no you're going to be paid half of that unless you can prove that you're doing forty hours of work and you can't do that with this situation so again I i. There could be players that do this decide to do this. I understand it but don't expect don't act as if the League owes you one hundred percent because of a worldwide crisis that has taken hold of everyone thirty nine minutes after the hour. Let's jump out of here and get the latest on the local sports flash thirteen ten. Kfi Am preps. Radio is northern Colorado's home for the best high school coverage Lou foul former Colorado Buffaloes quarterback and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten ks ks power to play for full question. What's your favorite sports video? Game of all time got a crazy I mean I guess I figured it. Madden is is leading this bad boy by quite a bit. Everything else is is distant second or third thirty two percent of the Hogan's are saying madden whereas seventeen percent. That's next in line saying in. Lv The show. I event text line. Three one nine nine six three one nine nine six when I think on the rocks liquor for providing our game beer of the week just like every week this one's from funk quirks brewing for Collins Raspberry Sour Ale pickup selections from funk works or any other of your favorite at all beverages and use the drive through their open until midnight at on the rocks liquor. Portland Sutton was you know. He's been in a lot of different interviews recently but he has been very excited very outspoken. About how excited he is and how great he thinks offense can really be was on a conference. Call yesterday via Josh. Alpert at Profootballtalk coralline Sutton said the wide receiver. Room is going to be exciting. He knows the influx of talent. That second year quarterback drew lock will have at his disposal. He also went on to talk about what drew lock. Means already to this program to this team saying you know we we really believe our offense can take it to the next level and be in the days of seventeen points per game are going to be long gone by the time we start up. Listen I'm as excited as the next guy you know I I guess I'm I'm cautiously optimistic. I I think that's fair to say I've been very vocal about you. Know my my issues with this team. Not really going to too deep into the defensive side of things this off season But they definitely went into the offense but this is tough. I mean I I was the guy who said. Hey it's time to say drew lock guy for better or worse that does not mean. He can't lose his job next year. But I think you have to commit at some point. I would have said the same thing about Trevor Simian three years ago. You know this whole competition. This whole decision thing it wears out it wears people out whereas the teams out whereas the fan base out. So go all in sedro locks your guy and I want Portland Sutton to be excited. I want him to say those things but it got me thinking again. This is based on five seasons five five seasons. If it was based on five seasons would be okay. Five Games five games for drew lock. Who informed one? I love the sample size that we saw. You know I was excited about that. That was great but it is again. I said this. The pressure on drew lock is is huge. You look at what they did. Last year in their final five games they played. They played the chargers. Houston Kansas City. Detroit Oakland they lost to Kansas City. Badly twenty three to three on a very snowy snowy day they of the first game. The first game that drew lock started was against the chargers. They win twenty three to twenty. The chargers were rough. They weren't great the next game. Which was that was the crazy one. Right THEY BEAT. Houston they were whooping up on Houston to Houston and on the road. And I think that's the game. The six out to a lot of people then get smoked by Kansas City. Kind of get a reality check. You'LL UP ON DETROIT. Who Struggle and you beat Oakland by a point so I know we've had counters to drew lock being the guy and I would just say hey get get around this guy be excited sure but I don't think that you should start thinking this is the second coming of elway slash peyton manning that that is the tough part easy ever going to be a Patrick Mahomes type guy. I'm going to wage your hell. No can he turn around and be a pretty formidable quarterback for the Broncos for the next five ten years. I think I'm going to say I'm leaning towards yes. But they're broncos countryman. I mean you guys are all in on this like there is no going back and my only fear is week seven. If you're struggling which I don't think you're going to. I think the schedule lends itself to you. I really do does that. Mean drew is going to have an MVP type season. No but I think that you're going to be better than more than seventy percent of your opponents. I truly believe that. The broncos get up into that top you know obviously the top fifteen top sixteen as far as the team goes but that elite that makes you know not at all you have still quite a ways to and I think that will be on the defensive side in order to take that next step but I like I like Coralline Sutton. I like players. Being excited about drew lock again. I just said I've said this since day. One you're not gonNA baby this offense along with drew lock. You're not going to give him some opportunity to kind of grow within the offense. No you gave him a jet rather than the old beat up eighty nine Ford pickup. So you're saying you better operate this and if you can't figure this out this two three tight end said maybe three four wide receiver set. Maybe two running backs in the backfield with Lindsay and Gordon. If you can't figure out all these different schemes and all these different looks than your time in. Denver will be very very short and I think that's a lot to put on very young quarterback early on so all I can say is I hope Sutton's ready to have an all pro year. I hope Gordon's ready to be a fifteen hundred yard. Rusher or him and Lindsey between the two of them are close to that. I hope your defense can step up to be great. Even though you didn't necessarily upgrade this offseason there's a lot of players that you'RE GONNA ask Bradley Chubb. You were out a good majority. You're going to ask him to be special next season. And those you're going to need three or four special players here in three or four guys to be top players in the League in order for this team to achieve what they do it to achieve enough greatness for us to say yeah.

Madison Mikhail Shares How Point Is Your First Step For Doing Good

"Welcome to people helping people the podcast to inspire greater social change in the business world and give you ideas on how to take action. I'm your host out of Morris. I'm super excited to be here today. With Madison Michaela Bush founder of point. This is a single APP where you can volunteer for any cause. What's really exciting is that I went through to change the social entrepreneurship accelerator with Madison. A couple of years ago and she hasn't made phenomenal progress. In growing and expanding point this means connecting with tons of nonprofits creating a lot of opportunities for people that get out there and volunteer. What's more interesting? Is that even in these times? Cove in nineteen. They pivoted and found ways to help people get involved and make a difference. What she's doing is just fantastic. And I'm excited to share her story so without further ADO Madison. Welcome on the PODCAST. Inspiring me cool and can we dive in. Can you tell us a little bit about what point is for those who don't already know absolutely so point as a platform that supposed to be your starting points? Do something good whether that's volunteering. Our APP functions a little bit like Class Fast Rollin tearing or if you WANNA find Local nonprofit to donate. You can do that right on point before we get too far in. How do people? How do people joining? Well thank you. I love when someone asks that I get go. Go to your APP store whether that's apple or android just type in point. You should be able to find aching. Go the point APP DOT Org. I'd love to know just a little bit about how you started and a little bit behind the work that you're doing with nonprofits very long story. I feel like how we got started story is story that is a high and low over multiple multiple years. So if I give you the quick version of a I had started a website that allowed people to give. When I was in college I was about eighteen years old. I walked into a lawyer's office and I said I need started on profit and I then started a website that was giving platform. But it really didn't never really took off. And when I left holiday realized that the web had kinda died An APS became always really frustrated. That people never had a theory very easy way to help in what I mean by that. Is that there is just nothing in our pockets that we could pull out and say you know I care about the saying you know. How do I dive right in in in that was such a big frustration to me that it really set out wanting to solve it so? I did an illegal campaign after shutdown that website and raised twenty thousand dollars for an APP. I hired develop firm out in San Francisco and they basically took most of our money in never gave us a product. Yeah it was It was devastating. I didn't know I was doing. I was A biology kid In my family. If you're not a doctor your candidate a disappointment sow I was still trying to go the doctor route and then instead I was like you know what mom and dad forget that biology degree. I'M GONNA move into your basement and I'm GonNa Start attack so I hired for didn't go well and I realized how horrible it was going when I was in San Francisco and I had tweeted. Where can I get five thousand dollars and a friend? Connect me to the senior engineering manager at twitter on twitter. Believe it or not I know. It's it's a complete fluke so I met him. He had kindly told me. I shot my company in the ground. Good luck and that was a wakeup call. I needed so I got off the plane From San Francisco Joel. That night it was the day before the giving out eleven o'clock pm. And I had realized that a friend had offered to build an APP at a Frat party years earlier and I was like you know what was going to call him mind you. It's eleven pm so I call love. It was like hey happy. Thanksgiving remember when he said two years ago. I know I am talk to you in two years but any chance the offer to build the episode in he said. You know what it is and I'm like great that's amazing And he's like all starts weekend and I was like you know where you working. I work at Google so a developer from Google jumped Bp in about two weeks and the guy from twitter was so impressed that he jumped ended also finished MVP. So I have a lot to thank rocky. My friend who google in Tim from twitter really got us on this path to get it started That was not you know happily ever after after that so we built that first product. They jumped off after we got the. Mvp enemy started Beta testing. We brought in volunteer developers from Ohio. Which is where we live and we scraped our way to a product. And I tried walking into all these people's offices trying to fundraise. I went to every single rotary club. The draw high thirty. Fm begging for money never got anything. I mean people would ask me the leave meetings early like. Why do you need this? This is unnecessary. Kick me out fifteen minutes into a meeting. I mean it's always a struggle. The club astound nation in Columbus. Believed US really took a chance on us. I gave a grant in our in our friends and family Money and we were able to build out more of the product and in what I mean by that is that we started wanting to be a really quick tool to give people a way to do that too especially volunteer because we think it's literally crazy you have to chase down a nonprofit in playfield tax You know coordinate on a really bad not mobile friendly website if you just want to help and the mission became a lot bigger than what we set out to you. We realized that eighty five percent of women are leading local nonprofits especially in non major city placed us in. I realized that those women are ignored by the tech community not only because of their gender because of you know they work in nonprofits so there's just no tools no great tools that they can use That are all at our free And instead they're paying thousands upon thousands of dollars for really average software one. That don't have the right tools and nobody's really bang any attention to develop for them exactly citizens just big black hole when it comes to local nonprofits. I'm not talking about. Save the children or anything like that. I'm talking about the nonprofits that meet the necessary needs in our communities. I'm been so fired up about that. They just haven't stopped so it wasn't just a cakewalk to build a nap and launch it and be super successful some kid from Ohio. I took a bit of bigger out what I was doing. And it took a lot of youtube being bugling and falling on my face and losing a lot of money and so. Where are you today questions? So let's talk about pre covert January. We we're planning to set out on our big CAMPION's launch point not cities and we have about ten thousand users in Central Ohio. Two hundred nonprofits on the platform and we were ready to take point savage cities and the morning that the stock market fell was the morning. I my entire teams of light to Austin Texas in the fifty nine process signed up for our what we call an early access event and we had to cancel it. We HAD TO CANCEL OUR CLEVELAND All of our fans in Indianapolis and in DC. And you know what it is. It's back to the figure out Haba Rethinking and I'm sure that everyone listening to this is awesome not stage in your personal life or with Your Business and I think we're all we're all there definitely a huge ship for everybody. How's IT impacted volunteering Immensely so it was February. We saw that charities need about three hundred volunteers in February February is pretty low volunteer month and we were noticing that no one was signing up and this is really before you know hove it had hit the US at all really and we had four clients in my clients. We are a little bit like Tom. She's protect the feller platform to pop corporations and on the same platform to nonprofits for free. So we don't profits We do charge. Corporations add to give them a corporate associate responsibility tool for their employees. So we had all of these Companies lined up huge deals and everyone backed out and said you know we're having a lot of financial instability because a cloven in other countries and I'm thinking this is scary. Were seeing local impacts or something. That's not even in the US You know a few months and right now. It's been a very very eye opening time for our country across the nation needs especially Food Insecurity are skyrocketing and volunteers have just wanted the dig. Recent for that. Is that it most food. Volunteers are older individuals in. We've seen that for a long time at we realized that the two biggest pitfalls I would say not pitfalls Jamaica's categories where. We don't see young people volunteering. Where food bags and clothing drives and which is really interesting like environmental needs. We see so. Many people volunteer does things but we cannot still up a food banks need normally and we were thinking this is really concerning and then a disaster like this heads and amplifies that issue ten bull so he had a lot of advocating defined emergency volunteers for local food. Banks could pantries are still doing that. I noticed your Abbas kind of adopted during this time so when you log in chose you a different way that you can actually connect with your community. Yeah scrambles scramble was is that we need to make sure that we are teaching people how to best. You'd better sign so you know when you log in. It's like this kind of emergency banner. That's like here's a free ways. You can help right now whether that's ginny local food bank we have a campaign where you can actually fund. Fda approved mass for health workers And those are two big things at our community needs right now. You are self isolating and you shouldn't be leaving your home. We're employing people that's what you do Or if you qualify for an emergency volunteer position meaning we just ask you questions about your health and we ask you questions about who you live with To make sure that you're not at risk for spreading this or carrying a co Ed To other people if you were you know something God forbid happens. If you're volunteering in this situation us we have a little quiz to see. If you qualify. If you do qualify. There are opportunities out there which really need people to help deal with this crisis. Yeah absolutely especially distribution. Getting FOOD IS NOT THE PROBLEM. There is enough food at foodbanks. Giving it out to people. That's actually the issue. It's enough hands package. It Senate outs cars They're doing no contact distribution but at the same time I mean in Ohio. Ohio had bring in the National Guard because there were enough volunteers in the state to help our foodbanks. That's that's absolutely insane. That we as state or as a community couldn't step up but also thank. God in in my mind you know. Thankfully we have a government that saw that issue and responded to it very quickly on point we were working with the middle food collective. There were three shifts a day for us to get volunteers in to just help them package up that way before the National Guard was issued in. And they're still need in local food pantries so how distribution works is that. There's a bank and I need bake source of the food options food pantry that are in the local boroughs of neighborhoods in those food. Pantries still need hands so if you're able to volunteer then that's a good place to jump in right now and it's not just the need in. Columbus this is everywhere this is everywhere in the US. The New York Times reported on this school and so people can log onto the APP. See if they qualify. Now you know my my own experience with the point up like I see it from the standpoint of user. I'm going to go on on tier. Here's opportunities that I can go and join in. But on the flip side of that a lot of pine is actually about the technology that you're giving these nonprofits at you. Can you talk about what that looks like a little bit? And what their needs are and why this is so powerful for them. Yeah we wanted to make are really user. Friendly backed system. It's a little bit like that right. Needs Salesperson. How baby for a nonprofit. That's that's what our backend system is like. It's very user friendly. It's Outta watch ready. Needs System that they can say. Hey I I can create an event. Mike might volunteers ready to go. You know we wanna make it very simple for them. Tracker impact to attract new build all of those automatic very user friendly items into the platform. We make sure the tested on. Nimit make sure the tested this with older women especially And we also work on a lot of our communication within the platform itself. That were always teaching people how to use the software because sometimes in our community our our leaders can meet older in these sectors. And we WANNA make sure that we're educating them really. Well what did it look like before for you know in a nonprofit when they're managing volunteers? The hotness it's crazy I mean some nonprofits have great systems because he can afford them and I'm not saying that there's not great systems out there. I'm Jay Signal Pricey and I really don't think they should be and and for me. I just feel like that's taking advantage of donor dollars when we could be solving that issue in more innovative ways like our I model and I really do. Think it's the right way to go So again it's really scrappy. Sometimes they're paying. You know ten thousand fourteen thousand dollars a year or a software project gases not crazy when you think of enterprise level software but it's still a lot at war they're scraping together some excel or Google docs or sometimes pen and paper to get the job done in. That's not efficient either. Really wasting their time and resources to manage the volunteers to get more work done so if they can spend their dollars more wisely than they can really increase their own impact. Absolutely I mean. We have to get our leaders out behind a computer. In instant emission rate. We need to free up their hands on that. Data injury side crane. What did they think of the the point software when they get it? You know. It's all over. Some people are like I can't believe this success which is great. You know some people expect it to be a lot more difficult than it is or some people don't know how the Internet works and they think it's the hardest thing on earth so I mean we're explaining how the internetwork sometimes and that you can actually access everywhere because it's already computer website. People come from very very very different backgrounds so back to covert nineteen What are some of the other things that you've been doing during this time? So I think it's an all hands on deck situation and it's a really make it breaking hyper nonprofits. I know that in Columbus United Way. I reported that sixty six percent of nonprofits as surveyed Didn't get to have their major. Fundraisers were cancelled their major fund raisers in twenty five percent at that time insureds more now had offer lewd or laid off employees. Nisus terrible time in when you look at the community's impact stance Maya mean by that is that if we have nonprofits that have increased need for demand and they're laying off employees and don't have enough money to run their operations because they foster unreasoning events. How are we going to respond as a community? So point has been working day in and day out to release new features. That might be helpful. We called every single. One of our nonprofits says day you know. How can we help you? What are what are ways that we can help we've also Jumped in what started as a virtual hack von turning into a larger campaign on can't stop Columbus which is really a volunteer initiative decree resources for the community as respond to Cova nineteen inches release. Either tools are jumping helped profits with whatever they need and you jumped out with. Can't stop Columbus right at the beginning. Right yeah yeah. They called me. I think right before that first meeting took place and said Hey from a non-profit side you know. How can we work together? And it was a team of about eight people that really put together a movement really for business people community members in especially from the tech community to create resource says during Kobe. And I'm so thankful to be a part of it you know. I am not the major driver of that Jordan. See I mean Jordan. Divas tweeted an idea for it really sparked thing just to give some context to this. This bike it was like a Sunday night that the tweet went out. I found out about it on Tuesday or Wednesday and there are already like three hundred people already engaged in trying to pull this movement together. It was insane. I mean it went from a tweet. Two thousand people in like a week. Which is you can see. How many wants to help this time? I'm glad we have a way that we can do skill space volunteering rapidly right now. Because that's what we need right So I am not. The big driver knocked the big organizer. Ice Pool in together in helping approximates as much as I can. But Ned that leadership in in the organizing keep might have. They're just incredible. People in fake referred people like Jackson Heart off Route Insurance Jordan Davis that I really leading the charge. And we're going to be speaking with the ten zone next week all about can't stop Columbus so I'm just I've seen you on there so involved and so you know working with so many things on there so it's cool that they've come up with like they have all these different projects from helping Columbus Dot Gov get the resources in place to Support Columbus eat so people can figure out what restaurants are actually open the Columbus Helper Movement. Up there to to give you kind of good resources their particular projects that you've been involved in victim six projects active right now. I'm not talking about this morning and I'm so glad you're interviewing Vincenza. Because he is a horse and I mean in response to Kovic. He's had a sport. Columbus eats Enrik twenty four hours. I mean it was just an amazing hustle response to. I need that just to be fill. Point is involved with a couple of different projects But they're not launched yet so Circle back with you okay. Great well keep an eye out for those one point. Though that I'd liked to touch on is can't stop. Columbus has been a great movement for people who have been stuck at home and they want to do something but you know they eat. They don't know what to do. And here's a way of people coming together to collaborate on community events. Actually make a difference in this time man I think. That's really empowering. Yeah absolutely it's important so but I think quite often people are busy with lives. And they don't understand how empowering that is when you go out and you volunteer. I think that's of the reasons why point itself is so powerful as a platform. If I can be honest the word volunteering sucks. Clinton me this great. I mean when I hear the word volunteering. I don't think wow that sounds fun in. I lead a volunteer company right and I think some progress to be made their rebranding to be made about the idea of volunteering and at the end of it. You're always so thankful that you did it because from a very selfish point of view it's very meaningful and I think that we all want that in our lives. We want to walk away with that moment of I mattered and I contributed an important but so often it's just hard for us to take that first step and from again the community standpoint especially now your actions matter your time matters how you spend your time matters and if if you don't have the capacity to do anything in you are taking care of your you know your family. That's also very critical. We wouldn't need acts like mine if everybody were was able to take care of each other right. So if you're at home in your taking care of your people in your loving people that is amazing. Keep doing but still. We need resources in our community chilling. He'll the people who need it. Most people need the help most. And that's what he points here for and on this mission we've set out to. Maybe when you hear that word volunteering. You'RE NOT GONNA go. How man do I have to do that or making. That idea volunteering seem a little better that makes so much sense and I think one of the big things that holds people back as the complexity of it so having an easy way where you can go on. And say hey. I'm a free at this time. And here's something that looks interesting and one. Here's things that I'm interested in being able to find the right opportunities. Yea totally volunteering. Loki painful and we really gotta take that out of it if we're going to change the mindset of volunteer hit. The thing that I found is that it builds these connections that really span socioeconomic classes and brings people together from very different backgrounds. And there's something very powerful as we start sharing our our story across these cultural boundaries or socio economic boundaries Because at one that that gives you more creativity in your life I can see more inspiration and it gives you more ideas of why why you're doing what you're doing. I also WanNa make employees that we have this idea that only the rich can volunteer. And sometimes that's the case because the rich have the time however what our mission as well as the point is that because it's an APP that anyone can download. We truly believe that everyone has something to get in. That means that every single person has that value to give. Whether that you have no money to give you. Can you can give an hour. Whatever that is you have something to give you. WanNa make sure that. Were sharing that message loud and clear that doesn't matter your status. It doesn't matter your race that you're welcome in. We're encouraging US volunteer win. Some communities have never been asked and we wanna fix that is so great on the flip side of that for these nonprofits for them to be able to communicate what they're doing more effectively. A lot of that has to go back to you know being roll up that data. One thing you've done really well is time that in with a metric system like the UN sustainable development goals. I just love to hear your take on Well I think the UN Global Goals for Development was rolling out. When I had that first website and all of the giving was wrapped into those causes and I realized that it's really difficult for us to in the United States to see the physician or see the ball rolling Development locally is easier to look at them from a global standpoint. But it's harder to you feel engaged with those goals from local perspective. We built everything around the goals so they can move our communities and track the impact in how we're moving forward towards those goals within each nonprofit within each city any within each local community those goals really just give a really nice categorization of different ways that we can make impact across a whole range of different topics whether that's poverty or food or education or parliament or quality. And I think being able to actually see that laid out is super powerful understanding that. Yeah I'm part of something bigger part of something which is taking our whole humanity for in positive direction for sure. So have you been thinking about what happens after cove in nineteen? Yeah I think from my perspective. I have this urgency to get point into other places because of the chaos that will come with be building the support park communities in. I mean by that is that when we are back to a new normal every nonprofit is going to have to begin their work again allows nonprofits are shut down right now. But when we're back we're going to need to usher in support to our local nonprofits quickly and efficiently in. There's just no way to do that. If every single nonprofit in town is clamoring for support and there's fifty different websites to go to you in their fifty different ways volunteering. You're calling summer emailing others. Were signing up on the web somewhere else. We have to have a cohesive Central Point what. We're directing people on a help officially if not it's going to be chaos so really you know. It's not just we're shutdown right now. And then it's flip a switch and everything's going to be back to normal now we flip a switch. It's GonNa be mayhem if we flip a switch and we're not saying here's how the help in your city in this is going to direct you into the different ways to help. Efficiently ineffectively in. We standardize that process for people. Because people will want to help we ha- we will lose them if they're chasing down fifty different ways on how to do so comment so then points really going to become this lens to focus. Hey here's where help is needed. Most and here's how you can jump in and get involved in a productive way without wasting your time absolutely in also. Don't the nonprofits time? I think that from our side. It's really inefficient for volunteer to be calling but how more inefficient is that for. Charity Coordinator Nader to be doing that. Five Thousand Times. How trying to manage capacity and find the right places for everybody. Yeah I mean it's essential at this time that our communities have one place one central point to direct howdy dead. If not we will have a problem. That's awesome. I hope that you're able to focus attention in and help us as Kobe. Nineteen passes just to become something that really takes us to a whole different level of community involvement. Thank you. That's what our team's working hard now. You've got a great team. I just I love how you know. Part of your story has just been this perseverance of pushing through. If you'd given up wooden the investors original nap developers took your money and didn't produce anything. I think that would have been very easy to say. Hey this didn't work. Let's put aside but instead you you push through that. I know it's a very challenging. Starting Tech Company especially one that requires a lot of people to be involved. The from. You know the nonprofit standpoint to volunteering standpoint and I just love seeing that grow. I think I'm actually insane. Insanity can change the world so I really agree cool. Well thank you very much for for joining me today. And just to reiterate you know if you're listening and you don't have point on your your phone go to the the APP store and download point or you can find out more information on APP Dot Org Right. You're right thinking of the bug and I can't wait to see the impact we're going to have in Columbus and we're ready to rebuild and ready to you know find emergency volunteerism Thankful how the people listening to this are those people. So thanks and we can't see you on point so much thank you and once again a big thanks to Madison for joining us. On this podcast. I'm so excited to share her story. What she's doing.

Now, you have that new music shot suppression shot. My strategy. Stop talking. The another sorry talking. Amy's pile of stories listen to cut down on the overall amount of sickness that is happening in the workplace right now officials are urging people to just take a sick day. Like, even if you think you might be sick take a sick day. If your coworkers are sick take your six day because if they come to work, you're gonna get sick from them. So now's the time of year ever. It's just all spreading like crazy. So if you've got a day, take it, you know, what if you're sick, take it? That's all don't feel like I'm waking up, and I'm gonna guess it. Frank over cubicle. Sees six. I'm calling in. Now, I had a friend recently who refused to she knew. Or is he he knew that a co worker was sick and was still coming to work, and he called I'm not coming. If you keep letting him come to work. I'm not coming you need to send him home. I'm okay with that. Okay. I'm okay with if you're sick. You should not be at work. Even you guys. I tell you guys do not come in. If you're sick. I come in. If I'm sick. The shows gotta go, right? But you guys do not need to commend. If you're sick. We there's this bad. Standard that's been set by culture that you need to work all the time, regardless of how you feel because it makes you weak. If not know what looks weak is. If you stay sick for weeks because you're not letting yourself heal up in a few days, or if you're passing around and everybody except for me, by the way. Yes. And it says here the sleep is how is the best way to fight an illness. It's a restorative medicine. So when you deprive yourself of rest like Bobby saying, you continue to work just go ahead and take the day or two off it you need get rest. Try to talk to Dr get better than what I would. I did the minute thing with sickness. I all I did was sleep drink water and slept like four times, and I just slept slept and every time I slept at other got worse or a got better meeting. It had run its course rents courts faster because I was sleeping or got better faster. I slept so much, and I was on the road doing stand up in Iowa. So I would sleep all day wake up half hour before. Go do my show go right back to sleep. I didn't like three days and it did. I agree sleep is the best medicine. What else sell if you're someone who's always hot at night? But your partner is always cold. Well, there's a new blanket that it's perfect. It's called the blankie ni. And it's it's designed so that once I can be opened and flip down and there's zipper down the middle where your partner can shimmy right into the blanket, but you're still sharing a blanket. You just each have your own side, and they make them for both king and Queen beds, and they're on Amazon Glenn Keeney, maybe think lunchbox because he's like always sweaty. And and then his wife is probably not. So you should get her a blinking look into. What are you guys do have two different blanket? She sleeps of the comfort of my own blanket. See they need to blend. Awesome nights. It's just gross in sweat, and you get up towel off and get back in bed. Do you have to tell off sometimes from what else three men right here? Lunchbox Eddie, Bobby? How many of you dreamt about your wedding day as a kid? To never was as a kid mo-. I don't think even I did. I do now a bit. But not as a kid, so you're more. So now in your yeah, dollar married. Did you know never see two thirds of men have been dreaming about their wedding day since they were at kid, but I got over three right here. And I'm not even so manly. I wouldn't want to admit it. I two thirds of men also say they were just as excited as spouse on their wedding day, if not more excited the average man has five panic moments during the wedding planning process, and these are the areas in which men are most involved first of all who's in the wedding party. The guest list the budget, picking the date and the invitations other than that. It's all up to the girl, like flowers cake colors, all that. I feel like Bobby you'll be involved in every single step. And guess what? People. If you're just now tuning in bobby's supposed to be married by December twenty nineteen.

So a pick her up and I had to play the opera last night, and I've been like sinus like I've had my throats been horse. I was concerned because I don't want to go play the operation and not do. Well, anyway, because I kind of bomb the last time the opera guitar broken. The is set so low laws like I gotta do this not being able to talk and then she's in town, and it can really talk. And so I pick her up, and we get some food, and it really wasn't awkward or anything to begin with talking FaceTime a couple of times. Yeah. Pick her up. And then we go to the Opry, and I worry because when I go to the operate like to meet as many people as possible. So we we had set up a meeting with a bunch of listeners. And so I go, and so I had to leave her with Morgan to basically, and I went over. And so that's your like can somebody handle. Does she did Morgan to buy? I loved her. I thought she was great lissi loved her perfect. Ask you a lot of questions about Bobby. I mean, not really she liked confirms something she's like he's from like, where's he from like, I wanna make sure I know these things about him that I like miss doing and she didn't want to Google thing. Because I was like don't Google stuff's not true. Most of it has but still so the Eddie was there at matter talked to rose, and is very nice like Caesar really nice. Like, I liked her a lot. And we did the show a Mattel you guys a lot of giving me crap about like a first day taking someone to watch you perform. Yes. Most ball move everything done in my Lawler. Also did pretty well at played. I did a set in the Nettie came on the end we played a song together. Yeah. Sorta Opry is awesome. Says she's in it like, wow, I'm in Nashville stage at the grand ole offered definitely look. You'll definitely baller sort of like a star is born ish. I didn't bring her out. She didn't go to say. La, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA like, you meet her. And then it's like, hey, you're coming to my show. I had to I had to work. I know I know is perfect. You take her backstage at idle. Oh my gosh. Is that there's no time for that? I'm so, you know, she doesn't know really what she knows what I do. But she never seen it. And she was like you go do comedy stand up. And I was like, yeah. I'll do comedy. I take my guitar out and play and what she carries how that tied into radio. And all your everybody is because it's just not the same the only similarity and radio and stand up is that there's a microphone not the same skill set at all. And so I'm way better radio. And so we do the show, and then we hung out for a little bit afterward. We're a little bit. Yeah. And then by the time it was over took her back. Good. So what did she say afterwards after the whole night? She had a good time. It's fine. We had a good time. Nothing. So does she have a future? Layover? I don't know. We didn't talk about her work plans future. Again. No. But I don't think that we won't. It was good. It wasn't. Yeah. It was it was good. I okay, I hear that you feel like something like Tinguely. This is exciting part of my body. Chest about. Tummy, no. It was it was I was excited, but I'm excited. Yeah. Listen, I'm not I didn't meet her and go I'm going to get married, but it was good. It was a good date. It's just weird part of expectations. Are she doesn't other state? You know, that's difficult. But it's also awesome. Sure. Is she willing to move? He now that's not a conversation. Like they can live wherever they can. They just have to get to their hub. And in the end, we had a good time. The operate performance went off pretty well. And she thought I was cool much cooler than I probably am do you wanna say where y'all eight. Food. Yeah. It somewhere near the Opry. Yeah. It was crazy. We'd have much time bail no cooter. Opera girl national ballots. No. Awesome tie there. Shutout on stage. Now if nothing like that. Okay. When you drop off at the airport. Do you know how you pull out to the departures? And it's okay this airline you get out. Did you Smoot? You're on the cheek you can't on the so you got out her bag to pop your trunk Airbus our work bags, right? So it wasn't like suitcases 'cause she flew in was it effortless or awkward with every awkward now. I'm trying to picture you kissing her cheek and hugging and then you being like it's on. Imagine running at you with the head. But that's what it's like whatever I'm doing. Yeah. Yeah. Picturing. Okay. But it was it. Good. Yeah. But it was the first day any texts after I went to bed woke up melon and still there was no no not from me. Not from hurricane from airplanes. Yeah. Yeah. You can. You can that's probably why she didn't take. So it was actually good. Yeah. Like her. I think she liked me. Does it Morgan between Eddie matter? Everyone wanted to come to the opera last night to turn everyone down and well one I wasn't doing well with my voice and two. I was like I don't want. Nobody wanted to come.

If your heart says, no one wants to hear fifteen I didn't doesn't matter. Maybe that's nice. You're lying. There's no way you're lying.

I know it's T S seven which means Taylor seven and record. Yes. And the palm trees are some signal that she gave off an old photo. So fans are relating it that it's a possibility. She's bring stuff from her past in making a very country pop brand new kind of music album that hasn't been out yet fusion, Katy Perry. But I don't know if that's the case that rumor I haven't heard that rumor. He said, it's not the right word. Mexican Asian place. Yeah. Do. Paul taylor's. That's good. Are you ready for this thing kids, we thought? Yes. Five lies. You were told as a kid and probably still believe as an adult. I one what does that like ads said this one yet? Would you believe still that knuckle cracking leads to arthritis? Recent studies show that polling twisting joints, create spaces between the bones. And that's what causes the crack. The cracks actually the pop it gets into science. That's not true. Okay. The sound still going to be will. But it does not cause arthritis. And anyway, that's number one number two sitting too close to the TV will ruin your eyesight. Yes. You know? Yeah. Not only is this not true. But it just so happens at children are better focusing at up close objects more. So than adults too bright, the problem, they say is if someone sitting close to the TV, though, there they may be nearsighted. They may be having to Deb because they can't see it's one of the first signs of get. There is checked, but they sitting to close to the TV is not you know, where I used to thrive close to the TV. Duck hunt going. All anything. Number three. If you swallow your gum. It takes seven years. I told my daughter that the other day. Well, you told her. Yeah. What she called me out on this. Gum is mostly indigestible. Some brands use sim rubber as inner tubes in because it doesn't digest pass the system quite easily. Is it doesn't break down? So that means you can find it later. It's just like. Through. Okay. Okay. That makes sense. They say the only time you can get sick. If you eat a whole pack in that's like gastrointestinal issues. But that's with anything a lot. But yeah, like gum is like tire. How about swim too soon after eating in? You get cramps. Yeah. According to the American Academy of pediatrics and the American Red Cross is not true just finish swallowing before you jump in say, Cedo, choke. So you don't show the hour. Wait is probably made up to give parents just a little time. So I have to go out and watch people's kids. So one more. This is the one I know well this vessel. Now. What do you think? Ocare? It's make. They make them better. True. Boy, I don't know that that's a. Carrots. If you touch toed. You could get words. Yes. That's why you never pick always touch does never got award children or more likely than adults to get worse as their immune systems have yet to build the property offenses. And that's why mostly a kid would get one and kids also the people who are touching frogs. They have nothing to do with each other. Nobody has ever contracted award from handling towed. Wow. I didn't know that that is shocking. Shocking. One of all of them. Also might just pulled out the carrot myth. Tell me the origin of this myth Carrington. I hope I site c. Not like, I was believed it though, the origin of this myth dates back to World War Two. And it's based on a bit of the carrots are rich in beta carotene, which the body converts to form vitamin A. The really has no. To your your vision all the time, unless you're deficient in vitamin doesn't really do anything there. Again. Not only do I believe that I've told some of that stuff. I tell it to my kids like my daughter loves carrots. I'm like, this is so great your is are going to be so. Spinach with Stevens his muscles. Yes. Oh, all the time. And he loves it. He's like the hill. Eat lettuce. Nobody like this is going to make me bigger. I'm like. Yep. And he chows down. Holly in Wisconsin, you're on what's happening. Oh, you know.

And you've been somebody we've been praying for recently. I really relate to you. I think because when you talk about being awkward and really driven.

I do feel like stick up for the people that feel awkward usually kid yesterday that the science project so put it on my Instagram, Mr. Bob, vela's, my Instagram, and he literally went as you as his project. There were peop- people went as Abe Lincoln Sally ride. Audrey hepburn. They're like, and then he went as me, and I was like how. Yeah. Really? I mean seeing that knowing that he and then I I liked your little note to him to your like, did you get an A or what something about his great? If not him me up. Now, I am curious like what he got. And then you like shouted out to him. And then offered him a pair of Jordan's. And I hope that him reading that or anybody else. They know it's not about just you try to be like, oh, you just up me. I'm gonna throw you Jordan's like that you it's your way of showing like, hey, I appreciate this and your kid and me as a kid like the whole shoe thing. I could explain the thing. Yeah. I mean. Yeah. I think you should explain it. Because some people might be like, oh, why are you trying to throw out while we gotta do is that you're gonna throw some kids in Jordan's. But it's it's so much bigger than that. We'll have a sometime I give people shoes I love shoes. But as a kid I can never afford nice shoes and go to yard sales and try to find old cool shoes. And then try to scrub them and paint them for. For the first day of school because they had new shoes and we couldn't afford issues. And so when I first started to make enough money to save up not even just week to week. But to save up, my my I I made it gift was a pair of Jordan's to myself, and I was like twenty three and I was like man, I feel like I bought a pair of Michael Jordan tennis. You can never fought him as a kid and everybody's make fun of me. Like, it was tough. It's tough school stuff because I never had nice clothes. And so now, I love shoes because for me that was always the thing that I couldn't have. And that's also I give them so much. But it's not just about shoes. Right. But that's what's that's what's important to me is. And that's because I mean, obviously, he admires you like on like a high level. So now, he's gonna get a pair of shoes from you.

Hour 1: 4/22/19

"The Paul finebaum show podcast has been brought to you by the Capital One sabre card earned four percent cash. Back on dining and entertainment two percent of grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet terms apply. The pride passion, then Patrie of college. Football leaves here is the Paul finebaum show our one pint cast read we're sitting in for Paul today. It is an audio only version of the finebaum show today. So no TV if you are in the habit of listening online or listening on the radio, and then getting home from work on the TV you will not find the show there later on today because we are audio only. But that's all right, by the way. Why is it always audio only when I host Bill? I'm trying to figure that out John Hayes. I don't know if you have any feedback or it's it can't be a looks thing. Because Marty McGee have a show SEC network. So I know I'm not not too ugly to be on TV. But for whatever reason, it's always audio only when I'm hosting, but we'll still have a great show for you. Today. We have several topics to get to several guests to get to. We are going to attempt to talk a lot of college football here today on the show. I know that's that's generally the thing. But we just finished up the final SEC spring game with Georgia having played on Saturday. And now we can kind of look ahead as we're basically four months away. I know that still sounds like a really long time, and it is, but it's a lot closer than we were just a few months ago. Right. So four months away from the start of the season some of the takeaways from the spring, we're going to talk to Seth Emerson and. Little bit about Georgia. We're gonna talk to Matt Baker about the Florida Gators or talk a little ACC with Andrea Adelson Bill benders gonna come on later on. We're going to talk about the big ten, and then BarrOT Salih will join us later in the show to talk some SEC, of course. And so that's kind of what we got on the slate for you as we move ahead here on a Monday and the latter portion of April so last week, if you were a watching the show Seth Walder, our analytics guy who is in in my group here at ESPN, he was on with Paul to talk about the newest release of FBI the football power index, and you know, some of the SEC teams that were kind of in the mix for chance to make the playoff and stuff like that. And certainly a lot of interest in that in fact, actually while we're on the topic. I might as well throw out that we tweeted out earlier. Now that spring football is over. What is your biggest takeaway heading into this summer and Jerome replied that Alabama Clemson are still the two best teams and a lot of people agreed with them and F B I agrees with them that Clemson and Alabama by far the most likely teams to make the playoffs. But that doesn't mean they're the only two obviously, it's a fourteen playoff in. So Seth went through some of that with Paul last week. There are more numbers, however within the SEC that Seth didn't get into. I'm gonna throw some of those out. Now, we can talk about them later in the show if you wanna call in and this is all for fun discussion. So if you disagree go right ahead, accept these are not my ranking. So if you want to argue with the computer will be a good radio, right? All right. So SEC two thousand nineteen FBI says chance to get at least one team in the playoff ninety eight percent. So pretty much a lock that's. He's he's going to get at least one team in chance for two teams in the playoff sixty percent that feels a little high to me given there's only been one year that we've had a conference put two teams in the playoff. But it was the SEC and it was only two years ago almost happened again last year. So maybe that's not off base. Sixty sixty percent chance for the SEC to get teams in the playoff, by the way. FBI also says fifty eight percent for the big ten to get one team in so chance for the SEC to get to is pretty much the same as the chance for the big ten to get one a chance to win the SEC title, Alabama, forty seven percent, Georgia twenty-seven percent LSU. Eleven percent is third most likely then going down to Florida. It's six percent. And then Auburn and am at two percent. Each chance to win the SEC east Georgia. No surprise, the favourite heavy favourite. Sixty three percent, Florida. Twenty one percent. In Tennessee, checking in as the third most likely at eight percent, which obviously is not all that likely, but FBI, and there's a chance for the vaults chance to win the SEC west Alabama, huge favourite much like Georgia. Sixty five percent LSU is the the number two pick their by FBI. Twenty one percent chance to win the west. And then you've got an Auburn coming in at five percent each and then Mississippi State at at four percent, and I'll ask this question later on in the show. But I think it's an interesting thought as we look at this have have we gotten to a point now where we can almost say that there's balance in the SEC, I realized that everyone still believes that Alabama's the best team and that Georgia's right up there with Alabama, and they have been for a couple years. But I think maybe what we're starting to see is a little depth behind those teams where maybe the gap between them and the rest of the division isn't as big as it's been there. People that think that you know, LSU is a legit top five team of Florida. Some people think is a legit at least top ten team. And if that's the case, maybe we're finally getting to a point where these these conference races are division races might not be as much of a foregone conclusion as they've felt in the past. And certainly that's something that we'll talk a lot more about as we get into the summer and beyond last thing here from FBI as we open up the show projected wins for each team for this season. Now, this is including a the possibility for some of these teams of getting into the SEC championship game. And so these numbers aren't exact I've rounded them when I say half, it's simply because over the course of all these simulations sometimes they'll win seven games sometimes the win eight games, and it's right around in between. So I might say seven and a half. But I'm well aware. Aware you don't have to call enter tweet and let me know that you can't win half a game. All right here. We go. Projected wins. Alabama eleven Georgia ten and this is in the the regular season LSU nine and a half, Florida, eight Missouri. Eight Mississippi State, Auburn, Tennessee and Texas am all at seven and a half Kentucky seven, South Carolina. Six ole miss six vandy five Arkansas five what's interesting to me. There is looking at South Carolina at six wins. F B I believes the South Carolina is like a French top twenty team is far as how good they are the schedule. However is a completely different matter FBI rate, South Carolina, schedule as the most difficult and all of college football, obviously, they're hosting both Clemson and Alabama. And then have some very difficult road games in the conference. In addition to that AM's got a killer schedule to L A and M. I believe is ranked the second toughest schedule and am plays. All. Of the top four teams and FBI three of them on the road. So it's just a brutal year for teams in the SEC, especially if you're not named Alabama or Georgia and don't have more talent than everyone else all in all F, B I. And we said this back in February believes that the SEC has ten of the top twenty teams in college football, people can certainly dispute that and I'm sure some of you will and that's fine. But that's kind of the way we see it as we go into the seasons. If you have any comments on that or anything else than feel free to give us a call as always eight five five to four two seven two eight five eight five five two four two seven two eight five when we come back. We're going to talk a little Georgia football with Seth. Emerson. Your home is important. That's why gyco helps make it easy to save on homeowner's insurance because home is more than just a place home is where you have a cute little reading nut for those rainy days when you want to curl up with a good book. But you don't even read. So you just sit in there during. Under storms and scroll through memes on your phone and laugh in the darkness. The geiko insurance agency could help protect the dark mean filled corner, you call home call gyco in see how easy it is to switch and save on homeowner's insurance. Cried passion than patrons re of college football lives. Here is the Paul finebaum show. Our one podcast now joined by Steph. Emerson of the athlete. Welcome in Seth that taking me a little bit of getting used to saying that you are with the athletic, but it's been about a year now. All right. A little over a year anniversary was last week. We'll good deal. Always enjoy reading your stuff and catching up today on on Georgia football spring game on Saturday. It's a it's a wrap. Now, let's let's start with the quarterback situation, which has a very different feel from a year ago. Now, whether it was it was accurate to say at this time last year that there was a a real competition that Jake from hat on his hands with Justin fields. I don't know. It's hard for me to say, I know everyone wanted to make it a competition. It turned out not to be much of one but going into this spring and coming out of it. I think it's pretty obvious. This is Jake from team. Right. Right. And I think it was last year. But look anytime you recruit the nation's number one overall prospect there's going to be that kind of hanging in the background of. Well, what if he's so good? He has to play what he's so good. He actually beats out Jake femme you've got nothing like that this year. I mean, it's obviously J crumbs team and the interest from the quarterback standpoint for Georgia's spring was about who's going to be the backup. If something happens to j krom, it's you know, when when you have to really good quarterbacks as Georgia has had the last couple years the two previous years. They everyone says well, that's a good problem that this year. It's okay. Well, how bad is it if the crime goes down, and so people were trying to? Figure out over the growing. What did they have behind them? And that's it. I don't know that we're we're still gonna build any statues two sets and Bennett who's gonna be the backup at this point. But the spring game showed that he could be a viable option if they have to him and that one Mathis the true freshman from Michigan while he's probably a guy that will play four games. And then sitting redshirt he has some upside down the road to. Yeah. Well, coaches are very well aware of how important that that guy is the number two quarterback because we saw both teams in last year's national championship game win a game along the way and both went into that national title game undefeated because somewhere in the schedule the backup quarterback came in and helped them win a game where they were in serious trouble. Obviously that was yes, you see championship for Alabama. And for Clemson. It was the Syracuse game. So it's not a trivial thing who ends up being that backup. And how prepared is. He now you mentioned that you know, the playing time. The opportunity for that. I think it's one thing obviously that Georgia should have the luxury of because they're expected to be very good to dominate a lot of their opponents. So should be plenty of playing time available for whoever that second guy is right, right? And they had that at time last year with Justin fields to it. Just obviously wasn't going to be up time to keep them around. He wanted to start. And so he's going to be starting for how state this year. I think they're going to sprinkle in stats Bennett doin Mathis when they can't Stetson Bennett as one year of experience, but it was at a junior college. So they they they feel okay about the situation there. I'd say, but you you never know until you absolutely have to play. And Georgia's hoping that that does not happen in a real as in the game is still in doubt type situation. And so what questions that Georgia had entering the spring? Do they feel better about coming out of it? You know, one area. I'd say is probably the secondary. This was a situation of life without the Andre Baker. And it did not look good when they played without T. Andre Baker in the sugarbowl that might have been more the whole defense not just the secondary. They were also without the Andre walkers and be drafted later this week there. They were also without Jordan Davis, nose tackle. But the secondary this year. They're rolling out is pretty much the same one that was in that Sugar Bowl. And they looked better in the spring game. The takeaway for a lot of people when j crumbs struggled a little bit in that game UK from it a bed spring game. But you know, no one's really worried about Jake from especially in a spring game where you have rules set up. And you're you're being been they'll an offense and de'andre swift only gets a couple of carries. And then they sit in down. But what was encouraging was that for the Georgia team overall? I think is when Jake chrome was throwing the ball against the first team defense the first. Team defense did pretty well, especially when they were limited the edge guys with their rushing. So the secondary is kind of going one on one with those receivers maybe kind of two on one day from the receiver against the cornerback on a lot of these secondary held their own. So I think they felt pretty good there the other areas that. Kinda sticks out is what's the what sorts of going to do this year is it receiver, and we don't know that yet that didn't get advanced much in the spring because it was one of the few areas they had fourteen early enrolling spray, which is the incredible number, but they didn't have them at receiver. They're getting four receivers in the summer that all have a chance to be part of the rotation. Couple of five stars that could play right away and a grad transfer in there. So we don't know much about the receivers yet just Robertson did not play in the spring game because of an illness. So ball was not moved very much there. But the secondary they feel better about that talking with set them or sin from the athletic. Seth we just before you came on. We're mentioning at least FBI's take on chance to win each division. The SEC George, obviously, a heavy favourite in the east. If I were to tell you right now that Georgia does not win the east. What would? You say would be the most probable reason why. Probably that Florida in Dan Mullen second year had that year to affect you had a good first year. I think that the perception of Molen they're realistic perception of Mullen, when he got the Florida job was this is a guy who did pretty well Mississippi State when he didn't have the best talent when he gets to Florida when he has better talent. What is he going to do? And there was always that chance that he was going to be able to rise up and have. I think he did better in year one. Then a lot of people expected and you're to historically like Kirby smart had a great year two as a lot of people one of Dan Mullen, does great there. If you're asking me about what what's gonna go wrong for Georgia beyond like injuries. I would say that we talked about the secondary. I I think the defensive line is is okay, maybe not spectacular. So maybe some teams are able to do some stuff on their defensive. But it still comes back to Georgia's offense should be so good one. It's one of the best offensive lines in the country. I just think it's going to be hard for people to outscore Georgia most of the time. So I when I would look at Georgia. I would then look at the schedule and say starting particularly with that Florida game. I'm not writing off like when Notre Dame comes to Georgia and some of these other games. But starting with that Florida game you have a stretch where they've got Florida. And Kentucky's in there. But, you know, Texas AM allburn, I think actually goes Auburn, Texas in Georgia Tech. What if that really catches up to a team that's a tough stretch? They've gotta be playing their best football at that time of the year is for two it is for Georgia that they get Texas an NFL, but you've always got to go to Florida as in Jacksonville, and they've got to go to Auburn this year. And they've got to go to. So that's that's what I would look at it that November stretch and say how is door to doing that point? And are they playing their best football of the year because they're gonna need to survive that stretch. Yeah. Last thing Seth what's the level of concern. If there's any about replacing Jim Chaney Mel Tucker. You know, I when Kirby smart promoted from within for those jobs. He not only showed confidence in the two assistance less experienced assistance that he promoted for those jobs James Coley for the offense and. Dan landing. So the defense, but curry smart showed confidence in himself, and he showed confidence that he has instilled a culture here, and and create an organization as they always call it that you can do that. You don't have to bring in someone to reinvent the wheel as he said, I think a lot of people around here confident we'll see on James Coley. I talked to people that covered him, and we're part of his offenses when he was Miami's play caller from two thousand thirteen to two thousand fifteen and no one really has anything bad to say everyone says that he was he was good at his job. It would be the defenses problem or he did not have the offensive line that you will have the play with Georgia this year. And so people are expecting there's not new drop off there and defensively Dan landing and Glenn Truman was promoted to co co defensive coordinator, there unknown quantities as far as running defenses. But Kirby smartest so there. So I. Don't people round here. Don't seem to be too concerned. We will. We'll see only one way to find out. Right. You get on the field. And and see if there's much of a difference from last year, but certainly Georgia BULLDOGS based on talent should be there all the way to the very end. So Seth Emerson from the athletes. Thanks for thanks for joining us and talking Georgia with us today breath. All right. So naturally after talking Georgia now talk Florida when we come right back. We're going to talk to Matt Baker in the Tampa Bay times we will be catching up with him when we return here on the Paul finebaum show. Cried passion, then patrons re of college football lives. Here is the Paul finebaum show. Our one podcast. Halfway through the first hour so long way to go here. Bone lines are open eight five five two four to seven to eight five. That's eight five five two four two seven two eight five we will be taking your calls after we get through talking some Florida football with Matt Baker from the Tampa Bay times. Matt you were you were at the Miami spring game in Orlando over the weekend. Explain to us why Miami was playing it's spring game in Orlando. Yeah. Thanks for having me on Brad. It's interesting. They were supposed to play typically at hard rock stadium. But the Rolling Stones did a musical group. You might have heard of them. They were actually supposed to play on Saturday at hard rock stadium. But then Mick Jagger had had some health problems. So the canes were looking around and they ended up doing the same thing that Florida state did in two thousand sixteen so they took their show on the road of tour Orlando, which just coincidentally happens to be where they're playing a really big opener in a couple of months against a team from the SEC just an old didn't twenty sixteen. So now they took their show on the road in front of nine thousand stands at Camping World stadium. Wow. This oh, so math. The breaking news. Here's the Rolling Stones are still touring. I I was not aware of that. I will say I was entering college in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and I remember that the stones. They were old then and they were having a tour called the steel wheels tour that year and that was. Thirty years ago. I'm impressed that they're still alive. But but good good for them. Hope Jagger's doing better today. Switching gears to the Florida Gators the opponent as you mentioned for Miami. And that season opener they wrapped up spring a couple of weeks ago fully bay Franks, obviously improved a good bit as the season went on last year. But still some young talented guys behind him on the depth chart. We're led to believe that that was a legitimate competition in the spring. How do we feel coming out of the spring? We were led to believe that weren't we? But from from what I saw in practice. I don't see how it competition. I mean, it's a leap Frank. And then there's a pretty big gap to Kyle, Trask and Emory Joan fleet pay. I don't know if this sort of fan base it ever gonna really trust them because of how much he struggled and mcelwain last year. And how rough you looked at times last year, certainly Georgia game in Missouri game kind of come to mind, but since the. South Carolina game where he shushed the home crowd. It's been a different player. I mean, his completion percentage has jumped eight point since then he's averaging two more yards per attempt than you did before that he's running better with more conviction. You looks a lot more confident and to me that continue throughout the spring. So don't was third highest jump in passer rating in the country last year compared to where he was the year before. So again, I'm not saying he's gonna win the Heisman or anything like that. Don't get me wrong. But he has certainly made a jump from a to at least a solid who pretty good. Maybe even good quarterback with a higher ceiling the net. So to me it's fleet they Franks and then there's a drop off between everybody else in the Gators quarterback. Or right now, I know there's a lot of optimism about Florida coming into this season. But if there's a reason to be pessimistic. What would it be what where's where's the glaring hole? It's the offense of line. I it's kinda crazy. Al Florida, Florida state Miami. I cover all three here. The Tampa Bay times. None of them come block worth a lick. Oh, three offense of lines are not very good. And it's been a years long problems. Bad problem having football, by the way. Yeah. Yeah. It is. Getting wind was was was decent enough last year. But it was one of the weaker links. I thought they lose four guys for starters from that line including John Taylor. Who's going to be a first round pick and one tackle? And then art has Ivy who's probably going to get drafted as one of the other tackles that is declaring weakness they've got some talent there. I mean became a returning starter bread. Hey, you've been highly thought of certainly has recruit, but he needs to be able to stay healthy. And and we'll see what the other guys around him can do, but there's not a lot of depth there. And there are some good players. But just not not quite enough of them yet. They're still young and growing. So to me the biggest concern I would have by far with Florida as the offense of lying, and that's something that Miami is going to be able to take advantage of immediately and week one. This is the Paul finebaum show. I'm Brad Edwards sitting in for Paul today. We're talking with Matt Baker from the Tampa Bay times talking about. The Florida Gators here. And I mentioned the optimism a lot of that has to do with Dan Mullen, and we're just talking in the previous segment with Seth Emerson. We were talking about Georgia. And I asked him if Georgia doesn't win the east this year. What's the most likely explanation for that? And he said, basically, you know, Dan Mullen working year to magic at Florida. And you know, he referenced the the improvement. They made last year. What would you say is the biggest difference that Dan Mullen has made so far in Gainesville? And coherent cohesive. Intelligent looking off. It is the biggest thing. I mean, we know what happened would Jim mcelwain and how how awful the offense looked me know, what happened certainly would we'll much have there too. But with all at the helm, they have plans, there's a good amount of Turkey. You know? I'm not a play caller. I don't pretend to be one. There's times where you can see you can kind of feel the the wheel turning with Mullen, and some of the things that they're studying, you know, doing this to set something up later on. So I I really think he's just an excellent play caller and against they things going in the right direction. And he's been able to maximize the talent that they have. I mean to me the big difference between Florida and Georgia Florida doesn't have a single five star on their roster Georgia. I think I'm ninety of them in the last class or something like that. You might wanna check my figures, but close Georgia seems like it Kirby about a huge advantage in talent over Dan the Gators right now, we'll see Florida and close the gap. You know, they did have a pretty good signing day all things considered enclosed. Well, they're still really big gap. So that the challenge for me what I see with Gators whether they can scheme around that until they can get the horses to compete with Georgia Alabama. What's the confidence level the fan base right now? I mean, you just said that they're still a talent gap. That's evidence between Florida and Georgia to the fans feel that way. Oh fans are nuts base that they just are. I think most of them are realistic that is probably the year that Florida's been overtake Georgia. If Florida can win ten games maybe eleven including a bowl or something and make that next step continued to be in the new year six conversation. Then I think Florida's fans are going to be happy for another year eventually van moan and everybody else in Gainesville knows they're going to have to beat Georgia and star competing with Bana and sort of competing for national championships on playoff appearance. I don't think year to that year. So Matt our football power index. FBI has Florida ranked as a top ten team still considered George the heavy favourite in the SEC east. But what's your take on? How good Florida could be this year is is top ten realistic. Oh, yeah. I don't see why top ten is is it's not a reach to me at all. The defense is good with a chance to be very good or excellent. Again, sleep a Franks was one of the most improved quarterback statistically in the country last year. Now, you've got another year of him working with Dan Mullen, who all seem to do is groom quarterbacks one way or another. And then we haven't talked about skill players yet. But from la- Michael p rhino running back week Davis at Tampa kit and the receiving core is one probably the best. They've had since the Tibo here to me. They better really good group of skill players. If the wine can be decent to good. They definitely have a chance to be in that top ten range. Maybe maybe hired in that even math. Thanks much of your time. And we'll we'll check in probably over the summer and see what's going on down there. Not only in Gainesville, but the rest of the sun shone, sunshine state, excuse me, easy for me. To say that you're on their they thanks for having me on. We got four more months to figure out something to talk about right? Absolutely. That's what it's all about. Matt Baker from the Tampa Bay times, we will take a quick break. And we will be back with your calls. Phone lines are open eight five five to four to seven to eight five. Give us a call here on the Paul finebaum show. Cried passion, then patrons re of college. Football leaves? Here is the Paul finebaum show. Our one podcast. I'm gonna get cold. Now. Phone lines are open by the way, eight five five two four two seven two eight five. Let's start out with Bruce in Florida. Bruce. I'm doing. Well. Thank you. I'm honored to be on the show today on the first caller. You're the first call we've taken so far today. I do feel blessed found. What I'd like to talk about today is the Florida Gators. I'm a big gator fan. And I was listening to your gifts. You just had I agree with him on everything. But the thing that he didn't bring out was Florida is loaded at receiver. I'll believe it's going to be the best receiving core. If you see and Florida's loaded at running back that's going to be too strong positions are defensive line and our offense on is definitely our weakness, but we have people on campus. And Dan Mullen has been good when he was at Mississippi State development player he can take to start very stars. And and make them look. Good for. Yeah. No, you're absolutely right. And that that's one of the reasons that, you know, people were really excited about Dan Mullen coming there. So there's no question you can get more talent to Florida than you can get to Mississippi State, and yet he had and this is this is something that I I just have to. Remind people of constantly because I think people sometimes take things like this for granted. Dan Mullen, had Mississippi State ranked number one in the nation for five weeks. Okay. That that cannot be understated now that doesn't you know in itself put him up there in the Nick Sabin category. But I think he he showed through a lot of years at Mississippi State that he's a really good head coach. And he knows what he's doing. And think you started to see some of that at Florida last year, you know, Matt just made the point Matt Baker from the Tampa Bay times last segment made the point that you can see that he has a plan offensively, which is something. You didn't often feel was the case when you're watching the teams previously under mcelwain must champ and say as as you saw Felipe a Franks improved greatly over the final month or so of the season. I think it was natural to get more optimistic about this year. You mentioned the talent at receiver and running back. And especially receiver if the quarterback can play well he can throw accurately. Those guys are going to have a chance to make a lot of plays. But once again, it it comes down to Kenny block. And I don't think that's a question against a lot of the teams on their schedule. But against the, you know, the best ones games that they have to win to make the season door as good as it can be that. That's that's what they're gonna have to overcome. Agree with you completely in Georgia is the one we have a beat lately. And that's the one that everybody has there is all as the target. But I think whatever all said and done TM twenty years down the road. Bama. There's going to be one of the top coaches just want expert here. Just like our our Florida's ever had. Well as possible, but in order to do that in order to be in that conversation. He's going to have to win a national championship. And the, you know, the the bar was that pretty high even though I would say he came in at the right time. And that he followed a couple of coaches who weren't very successful. Still, you know, Florida fans mo- most of that fan base. Not only remembers the urban Meyer years, but the Steve Spurrier years, and so there's still a pretty high standard there at Florida. And that's what that standard is winning national championships. And I don't know what I don't know that. I don't know that it was very often that those coaches had to contend with a team as good as Georgia in their own division. And so that's going to be a big challenge for Molin. Is that is that Georgia right now is that it's it's talent Pete, you know, as he's trying to build this thing at Florida. So I would expect they're going to have some some great games in years to come on as far as you know, teams that are both ranked in the top ten both of them with a bunch of future NFL players in the NFL players part. I think that's been the case for the last thirty years. I mean, Florida Georgia always have player somewhere in the field. The question is how good are they as a team? And in some ways both of them have been disappointing for for stretches during that span. But clearly Georgia is is there. Now, Georgia is is a very good team in Florida's. I didn't close to getting there. Well, I'll put my prediction and as Georgia and the carbon smart, he's a good coach all that. Great stuff. But I'm going to go into protect for Dave. He's not he can't win. The big one. We've seen that the last couple of years when it goes down crush something happens and everything crumbles, and I think that's going to be his legacy when L that we'll we'll see he's still still very young as far as coaching goes and coaching experience in. So he's got plenty more chances to to win those big games have been getting away the last couple of years. But, but you know, it's one of those that you you gotta do it before you can get up to that next level conversation. And that that's the confidence. Fighter between Lola and are. Coach well, and he's installing that confidence. Then our player and staff. Well, I think Jordan is playing with a lot of confidence too. It's just a matter of of being able to get to the very top of the mountain. And so it'll it'll be it'll be fun to watch a Bruce. Thanks for your call. Thank you. I burn she ate it. All right. Let's go to Brody. No, no, let's go to let's go to Jim in Alabama. I think I wanna take this. Call eight Jim. Hey brands, you love the show when you when you know. Thank you. Oh, you might make the roller. So still touring right? Yes. I would just hold that there. They were supposed to play last weekend and hard rock stadium. Yes. I saw them in nineteen seventy two. Wow. And tosa LUSA was Stevie Wonder is opening night, by the way. And then my wife surprised me in two thousand fifteen with tickets to go see them again for my sixtieth birthday in Nashville. Doesn't sixteen fifteen thing. I've heard sixty. They still bring it partner. They still bring you know. I'm not I'm not surprised by that. But like I said, I give them a lot of credit for still being alive and kickin because it's amazing that that lifestyle that they that they have lived for so long is not necessarily conducive to great health. I wouldn't think but they're still going. Whatever ks Richards is doing I think we all need to do it. But probably not really. Yeah. I think probably not, but yeah. No, they obviously a one of the one of the hall of famers when it comes to rock and roll in great bands. Yeah. That was that was the. Yeah. No GM that thank you for. Thank you for the call those there were there were two really surprising things that Matt said in that interview one was that the the Rolling Stones were were still touring the other one that really got my attention. What he said the Florida Gators don't have a five star player on their roster. And I I don't know if that's specific to a certain set of recruiting rankings and other several services out there and sometimes they differ on who are five stars four stars. But that one really caught my attention, and I can kind of underscored the point that he proceeded to make from there, which was that there's a as a decent talent gap right now between Georgia and Florida, and we don't often think of it that way, we know Georgia has a ton of talent because of the way they've recruited under Kirby. But it just a little bit of insight as to how Florida has dropped off. Now, Florida still a pretty talented team. But not having any five stars, especially when you look around. And even in the conference, and you see, you know, how many that Georgia has how many Alabama has just shows you that there's plenty of room to grow there for for Dan Mullen in Gainesville and a lot of people are very optimistic about the Gators as as we've discussed here in in recent minutes, so we will get back very soon with more of your calls. Phone lines are open eight five five to four to seven to eight five as we finish up here hour one of the Paul finebaum show.

"This is nightline tonight. Black on armed and gunned down while jock now. A mother searching for his last week. I love you first. Son's death resulting racial wounds. The new surveillance video showing the final minutes before everything changed forever plus transforming pain into a path to healing how to mothers their sons shot and killed in America or fighting for chain nightline. Seventy four days gone starts right now with Byron Pitts. Good evening. Thank you for joining US tonight. Seventy four days gone by before Georgia prosecutors brought charges against a white father and his son for killing an unarmed young black men. It's a case that's renewed. Debate overall demons prompted a national outcry over policing race. Injustice till eight and one point. I felt really hopeless. Must Sons was killed in the people that could help me was helping me from a parent's perspective to Cooper Jones? Is Living in nightmare. The kind you don't wake up from you know parents. I think it's always our expectation that our children will bury us nothing that we will bury them. I never thought that I would lose him in the midst of jogging. I mean that was I never. I never ever thought I would lose him. That way. Bone deep grief familiar to too many parents across the country in particular black parents. Two months ago want a son. Twenty five year old Ahmad Arboretum was killed chased and gunned down by white men or jogging on a sunny Georgia neighborhood street in February. Your last conversation with him. I was leaving. I'll be back and I love you. Sent me was I love you arborist. Death did not become a of national rage until this graphic video. The shooting leaked to the public last week. It immediately ignited a firestorm across the country on social media across racial and party lines for major developments tonight in that case igniting national outrage young unarmed black man shot and killed demands for an arrests have grown louder culminating in arrested murder charges. Seventy four days. After he was killed the moment I see that tape. I say to myself not again now. Ahmad armories facing name etched an America's new Mount Rushmore of sorts. Not Too old pry but renewed pain many of them martyred while they were still the shy side of many Americans have to address its long filing. Ruutel is racism and how it plays out on a current criminal justice system. An old questions renewed why so long to make an arrest and why if justice is blind or black and brown people so often harmed by a system designed to heal. So tell me about your son. He was the baby of the family. He played football in high school so by workout. When you call him your him he organ out I awaits out. 'cause I know that's all he wanted to Ahmad graduated. High School attended South Georgia Technical College and worked in his father's landscaping in car. Wash Business John. Every day if he wasn't drenching rain a my job on February twenty third. A month's family believes he went on his daily jaw leaving his mother's home just outside Brunswick eventually running through Tila shores a mostly white neighborhood just a few miles away around one of the afternoon. Someone called nine one one guy. Ram Hoping that senator. I know what even doing wrong on permited Georgia state. Investigators are reviewing this video chamber by filling affiliate First Coast News. That appears to be from the same day seems to show a person walking into a house that is under construction video from inside the site was given to. Abc News from the homeowner shows a man in a white shirt and khaki shorts looking around for about three minutes. Armories family attorney says they believe. This is a mind emphasized that he was not breaking the law the homeowner told ABC News. Nothing was missing or stolen and that he has never reported any burglar a second night. One call includes what sounds like a confrontation and yelling. I don't know what we what happened. Next is a thing of nineteen hours for countless people of Color Terror born out of Jim crew. The cell phone video is we can only show you a few seconds enough to see our burri running veering her. Run A pickup truck. Then you see him. Struggling with the man holding a shotgun by the time police arrive the twenty five year old was dead in the street. How the phone call about seven thirty and that was eastern time? The call came in from an investigator. Then he went on to say that the model was involved in a burglary in the middle of the burglary. There was a confrontation with the homeowner and in the midst of that confrontation there was a fight over the firearm and Amonte was unfortunately shot and killed. I'm struck by this. Investigators description of what happened doesn't bear the facts of what happened. It didn't make any sense. We've never had any problems with any with anybody. I have major concerns at that point major. The two minute video of father and son identified as Greg and Travis McMichael Sixty four year. Old Gregory used to work in county law enforcement. I as a police officer then as an investigator for the local district attorney's office. According to the police report the pair said they believe armory was for quote several break INS in the neighborhood. The older Michael described how he and his son armed with a handgun and a shotgun chase artery trying to cut them off more than once intending to make a citizen's arrest under Georgia law. You can conduct a citizens arrest for any crime. You can only chase the person down if they are trying to escape. If it's a felony so you would have to be able to show in the context of this case so that there was a burglary to even allow them to try to engage in this citizens arrest. Gregory McMichael told police his son. Travis Kill Aubrey. After he says armory violently attacked him. Gregory and Travis McMichael met with police the day of the shooting and that's when the conflicts of interest began I the prosecutor who covered the county where the incident happened. She had to remove herself because Gregory McMichael used to work in her office then the second prosecutor who took over he to removed himself from the case because of his connection to this father and son but he went even further writing a letter that what happened was legal and the victim in this case was the aggressor the. Da also pointed to various criminal. Record a gun charge from two thousand thirteen when he was nineteen years old in a shoplifting. Charge from two thousand eighteen. One was investigated by McMichael. But it's unknown if the to actually knew one another very often when black people are killed in this way the very thing. That law enforcement does is say. Oh they're criminals. Oh have you seen their background? He today he's a white kid will never got a profile. A month's parents say they will never watch the video. They already know what it shows. Some have described this as a modern day lynching as modern day. Jim Crow. Angry the way I've always saw is that he was hunted down like it was an animal and took his life. The autopsy revealed are Berry was hit by three shotgun. Blasts one grazed his right wrist the other to hit him him in the chest just one day after the video surfaced. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation took over the case. Little more than twenty four hours after that. This gregory and Travis McMichael were arrested and charged seventy four days after death row. There was no move to do anything until there was a public outcry that type of response suggest that they didn't earn breath. These men because they saw tape. They arrested them in because we saw take the big Michael's have not yet entered their pleas. Both men are still being held in jail state. Investigators say there could be more charges coming. Saying they're looking at William Brian Neighbor of McMichael's who took the cell phone video not proud that shot video but maybe it helps in the end. The State Attorney General has officially asked the US Department of Justice to investigate the handling of the case. That you guys ever have what they call the talk. The conversation that many parents have color often have with their children cases. Yes the fact is the talk work. What could have had conversation with the mad about not stopping by Opti the other instruction or not running away from a men with guns as they chase you invite. The problem is not with the victims. The problem is with the system that continues to allow to happen. It's time for us now. Begins the truth to the systems that are allowing this to happen over and over and over the talk did not save Ahmad nor will the justice system. Bring him back. His parents pray his die would not be in vain. What is your hope for your son's legacy? I'm hoping that in say Georgia they will implement a law that governs the hate crime. I'm because I do believe that was a hate crime. I know it was there that new one they arrived and my son's naming vote that something wasn't right but no one spoke up and it's really sad. It is a hunting reality in the US. Unarmed BLACK AMERICANS at a higher risk of game shot and killed than whites. Some deaths invoking nationwide protests like that. Both John in Dallas and Jordan Davis in Jacksonville Florida. John Twenty six year old account fatally shot an off duty police officer while eating ice cream inside his apartment the officer claiming she entered the wrong home. Davis seventeen year. Old High. School student gunned down by angry over loud music. Playing a car park next to his Davis was inside the vehicle with three of his friends when he was killed. Two young men their futures gone their parents now part of a club. No parent wants any part of earlier today. I spoke to Allison John and Congressman Lewis Macbeth to mothers who turned their heartbreaking anger into hope and activism. Ladies thank you so much. I'm so sorry to talk to you again. Under these circumstances I can't think of two women on Earth who know better what this family is going through in south Georgia the heartache. They've endured in the hurdles. They will soon face first. Question your reaction when you heard about what happened Lucy. I you all the horrible and horrific feelings that I had came flooding back to me mmediately. I was very very painful and there again. I felt like there's another mother that is feeling exactly what I have felt experience experiencing exactly what I've experienced no matter what I done to protect him in. Nurture him and care for him. It didn't matter because at the end of the day he was a young black male. Who was gunned down? He was murdered in cold blood. And we've seen this all too often in United States of America. Alison how `Bout for you. Before I saw the vigil when I saw a MoD photo to his smile looks much like from. That had brought this ride back. I know how mother field to lose that child and so my heart goes out to a more numb. And so what do we tell our son's about living in America? I think that saw a mom laugh. Parents and black children is modern up. Be Further Racial Unity. Conversation then must be that conversation Among blacks among human being lucy from the perspective of someone. Who's lived through this? What does progress look like to you? Progress to me. Looks like changing the culture of guns in America but also merging that with policy change but also adding in that layer of making sure that we have leadership in the country that is acknowledging what's happening to communities of color and the willing to stand up and opposition to the NRA. And the gun lobby. Allison what message. Would you give to the arbitrary family about the road to justice in the path to healing for them to keep focused on? Mckee Ki? Ay. Because if a kid that when black men are killed in America if the perception that they do not have family who care about them each case it just get cold and get low. Possibly think ever that your work has been in vain. That young people young men of color are still dying. I live I'm a bit head everyone every time. Another one field. I'm Bishop Street ahead. But I believe it is a long road to achieve achieving that. It's a journey that needs to stick to because any time we keep silent then people get Lucy. The final word yes. We're angry yes. We're devastated every single time. We see another young black male. That's been gunned down in his own community. We see our children's faces in the whole. The pain is just it reverberates in our spirits in our souls all over again but the thing is is that. I want people to understand and know that they cannot feel helpless. The best voice that you have to be able to stand up and demand better from America. Stand up speak out a a man from your state and local legislators demand more from clergy that man more from people that represent you demand more from me. Your policymakers to protect you to keep you safe that is your right congresswoman Lucille Macbeth. Alison John. Ladies Thank you as always for your grace your wisdom your witness gossipy. Tibo thank you so much. Thank you bye and finally tonight another of the resounding impact of Arbor death thousands of Americans hitting the pavement on Friday for would've turned twenty six that day but gunned down while the dog in Georgia.

The real real dot com, promo code real. Welcome to call your girlfriend a podcast for long distance festes everywhere. I am not too. So I'm an Friedman on this week's agenda. It is our five year anniversary. And we are talking about the ways that doing this podcast has affected our friendship. And we're also taking a little stroll through archive and playing a little taste of what we were airing in real time for each of the five years that we've been around, and before we do all of that, if you live in the United States like us, you are probably fuming mad about what's happening in Alabama, and in Georgia. And in a lot of other state legislatures around abortion access. It is really maddening, and we are trying not to be discouraged by this. If you remember we did an episode called abortion as are right in March we'll link to it in the show notes. You know, that was really expanding on the facts. That abortion rights are under attack. And that was true. It was true in March. It was true last year. It was through fifty years ago and it's true right now the opponents just like always come out of the woodwork and it really feels like a, a particularly vindictive assault right now. And so in that episode we talk about reproductive Justice, and we talk with activists, Rene Bracy Sherman and Judith arcana about what to do in times like these. And so if you're feeling a little defeated by the news and you need like some safe inspiration, the episode is a good place to start and also friend of the podcast. Steph herald on Twitter has shared a state by state resource that you can look to see what you can do about showing up in your state. And so we are going to share her Twitter thread, as well and her Twitter handle as Steph. S. T. E. P H herald. H. E. R. O L D, And you should follow her and general. Happy anniversary, God, happy friend anniversary and see anniversary like are very very close together for us through this week, we have been friends for ten years. One decade. I know it sounds it makes me sound like old in a way that I like not resolved about, but also C G is five years old this year. That is the that is truly the thing I can't believe forget that. The other thing this is we've been doing this for five years, and that's half of our friendship. Should we should we just take a moment to listen dish Twain's? You're still the one in mentally slowdowns with each other. I mean. I'm holding you. I'm holding far away. One thing we wanted to talk about today is a question. We get all the time, which is kind of a weird question for us. But do you know the one I'm thinking of the how is your house doing a podcast change? Your friendship question. Right. Probably not in the ways that people think it has, you know, and also like all of our friendships are always changing, and it's increasingly hard to answer. Because, like we just said, it's our tenure friend versus, but it's our five year podcast anniversary. And so now, the before the after the same amount of time, that's enough time for things to shift in terms of social media and digital platforms, where as spaces where friendship is enacted and performed like like an ten years. Definitely a lot of time for that. Maybe you can explain what what we mean. We say, like performed friendship because this thing we talk about ourselves but I'm not sure is a known turn of phrase, right? I mean, I think that what we talk about what we. Talk about friendship performance. Right. Is what are the rituals, the things that you do to signal both to yourself, and to the world that you are friends, and I think that like our philosophy is that everybody is performing friendship. But every time, right? It's not some nebulous the mean girl posting the photo of two out of three friends to make the third friend. They're not that qualifies is just not only one hundred percent qualifies. But I do think there are things that you do that you believe are private, but they're actually like very public and everything is up for interpretation. Yeah. So I think that like performing friendship can look like anything from how you choose to tag or comment with or interact with or post photos of your friend online. It can look like how you are replying to that friend in the group text where other friends or present it can look like what you say about your friendship when you're asked about it by a third party. They're all just glimpses that you're allowing the wider world to have into this unique thing that only the two of you who are in it. Fully fully understand. Right. And we have a very extreme version of this one extreme. I love, you know, like, but also, you know, interacting with us on this podcast is not a real representation of, you know, the Taliban, our friendship if you had asked me to list, maybe the ways it would be weird to be in a public friendship. I wouldn't have identified the fact that like feels super strange to have strangers recognized that you were close friend of mine, but not recognize other friendships, that are also extremely important to me. I have this level of insecurity that, like, oh, does my oldest forever. BFF Bridget, who I just had my twenty five year friend of her Serie with I've never asked her, like how do you feel about people not knowing that you're important to me in the way, people know mean as important to me, and I, I don't know that she cares, because she knows she's important to me. But, like we're that there's this lopsided public idea of each of our friend ecosystems. I guess I mean I think that even that kind of question or that, like I don't know that frame is very grounded in friendship performance. Because a thing that I am constantly trying to interrogate with myself as why is it important that people know, who's close to me, people who are outside of the friendship, not people who are inside the friendship, but just like of who are the people in your life, and how do people know you that wave? That's an interesting like frame to me as well. Like, why does it actually matter? I, I will admit that, like I like it. When people I care about know who else matters to me. Or like I like you know, if someone is a close friend to me, I usually like obsessed with them, and I think that they are not usually I am obsessed with them. I think that they are like the coolest best most interesting like politically relevant like you fill in the blank compliment person that I know. And so, of course, I want to be associated with them through among your closest friends like your closest friends know who your closest friends are. Yeah. But I guess what? I'm trying to say is, you know, when you say that, that framework is rooted in performing friendship, at all, like, I'm like, yes. Totally, like I think that. I guess what I'm trying to cop to revel in that aspect of it. You know what I mean? Like there's a part of me that really likes even though I understand that, that is not like I don't mistake that for the substance of the friendship that self can use beak to you, like how I love that I'm interviewing, you know. How it feels different doing the show now at five years ago, I will say that I was way, more probably like my chief, he was how I was doing a host and over the years. Hopefully it comes across that I've gotten better thoughts if anything it feels slightly easier than it did. Does it feel different like doing the show now between the two of us? Well, yeah, I mean, now it's just an discos back to that question about has the show change your friendship, like now it's just like it's baked in. It's like a Jason to it is part of what it means to be in each other's lives, that we do this show together, which is so weird to say that out loud. I don't think that if we stopped doing the show, our friendship would disappear. I don't mean it's like central. I don't think it's a Lynch pin, but I do think that, yeah, now it's just in there forever. It's like, yeah, we might take a trip together some summer or we might not or we might do some other together or not. But like the podcasters just like it's always their true. I agree with that. I don't know. How do you. Feel about that. I agree with most of that. I think probably the thing that I feel like has changed has changed as I think it probably is because we're so much more confident. It's not a place where I feel, you know, the earlier challenges of trying to figure shit out also meant that even though, like I always had like, full confidence that we would figure it out. There's just like no fear of like, like, I'm gonna fuck up something so bad on the show that ends are going to wanna be my friend or one to talk to me. Or you're worried if I. What? In a very tiny kind of way you know, like not in a. Oh, yeah. I don't know like some dramatic kind of way. But in a way where I was like, okay, there are fewer things I can break now that I could break them. I think like for me that just, just like okay, this is this is the thing that we do. But I also think that, you know, in a lot of ways this feels it's still super fun. And it's we're having a blast. But in some ways like the space feels a lot like work. Now, there are a ton of people behind the scenes who make it including you and me there, are, there is a higher level of responsibility. Also. Right. And so I think that in that way that the place that occupies my brain has shifted a little bit. I think I had I had earlier phases of working on this podcast where I had a lot more questions about like the long term impact of working on this show together, and how that would feel for both of us in our friendship. Maybe I've just accepted it like it's not that I don't have questions, but I accept the questions and the reality, I think that what's really interesting about it in terms of collaboration for me. At least is that it never feels? Like, because I've had other collaborations feel this way, where it was like every three months, I have to have a self check in, you know, like where am I where am I at with this? My still happy like, you know, my still learning my still doing all these things, and I will say the self check in on Y is less. It is way less frequent than that. And so, and I think that is truly, like for me at least just a testament of like, okay, we actually like, enjoy making this things together. And it's not a oh my God. Our relationship is all work. Now, when it used to not be all work. You don't I mean, and so I think that all of that, like plays a role for me Intel feel about it. It's really underscored belief that like friendship is an extremely expensive pair of stretchy pants where it's like you can put a lot down there. You know, like you really feel a lot. The confines of a friendship and remove items in the friendship can retain its shape, right? Like this experience has taught me that more than anything, and that's a perspective, I have because of the years in both our friendship. And in the podcast, do you wanna take a little break, and then take a little walk down our audio memory lane up? -solutely. With more than seventy sizes, including their signature half-cup sizes.

Twenty fourteen man, that is chill long time ago. Miss you Obama era. Do we? You do not. Listen. Listen. I I'm yearning for a different kind of era altogether. Okay. Enough enough. My futurist icon. That's where I go when the, when the political depression gets to real, it's not backwards. It's like very forwards to a moment. That doesn't exist back to twenty fourteen episode fifteen our origin, stories specifically, this is I, I don't think that I can listen to any of this without cringing and it's no way. Oh my gosh. Like what's so this is our first Hake of the family legend, which is really funny because it's very similar to how we tell it now. And also how hard it is to make the show every other week remember that we used to make every other week. And we were like, whoa, this is too much. Yeah. Now, we're out here every week bonus episodes, upside down episodes inside out. This is wild. Here's here's one that I would like you to answer. How did you start the podcast, maybe too soon to hit your origin story, but I'm interested in learning your Rossa for coming up with this show ideas, the vodkas to begin with? How did you get sponsors? Or at least get on itunes, etc. Oh my, how did the podcast start? I mean, I think you and I were like ladies need to be doing podcasts, and then we realized we were ladies and should do a podcast is that how it came about. I think I think I remember it a little differently that one Gina Delvecchio producer of the show was like you ladies should do a podcast. Oh, yeah. Sheets. And we were like a what's the podcast. Oh, yeah. More lady should do podcast. And she was like, yeah. Off. Approach this about this, like one dessert, ladies? But you know, as you know, many things happen at desert ladies, that cloud one. I think, yes, I think that we'd have this idea for a long time, and we didn't actually we like take it seriously for a while. Because, you know, audio is hard and then I was like you have to buy these microphones, and we were like what like that sounds crazy. That's true. We were excited about the gear. Yeah. I think it's a couple of months, and then I specifically, remember like driving around Hollywood when we were, like, hey, like a researcher is about, do you remember this trying to come up with name ideas? And I was very excited when I said, call your girlfriend should be the name of the podcast and immediately checked to see the URL was available. And it was because people are idiots asleep on everything. Yeah. I was actually driving. And you were book, like buying the URL on your phone. I remember. Yes, we were going to a party at the maybe ELO. Well, I don't know some sort of shameful like LA stereotypical situation. I am never shamed of the time I spent ace hotel style. Don't think it was. Because the wasn't open when we started this year. Right. It wasn't. It's not one hotel, where there's always some lady in pajamas, and a gloss Stander. Art. Thank you standard West Hollywood. We were on our way always like some board lady behind glass, initia- me's, and they're like, look at this great art. And I'm like, no. Yes. You're so right. You're so. Right. And then we did lots of high-fiving while purchasing or like locking down the g mail and Twitter handles. And then we realized we had to do something with them. I know things that are surprising about podcasting. Like one it's hard. It's like actually. Armed from just like a setting up your gear and like getting your life together, but also coming up with topics every week is it's not like the easiest thing. I know I think about that every time people are like you should do one every single week. I'm like, we can barely get it together to do this every other week. That's all I got. I mean, don't seem like a decent place to close out the year. Are you interested in sponsoring call your girlfriend rate? Email us call why are g f g Mel dot com and we look forward to hearing from you. We will be back in the new year. Same time. Okay. So now it's twenty fifteen and speaking of, like our friendship Lor and family legends. Here's an amazing story that we love to retail and our own friendship. Shout out to all the things giving worriers shout out to our thanksgiving, warriors do you wanna tell the back story to that amazing catchphrase once upon a time? I believe in twenty twelve U N, I took a road trip to Las Vegas from Los Angeles. I think's giving we thought it would be a great idea. The execution was insane, because I think, yeah, when we plan to do it, two days prior, it seemed like an awesome idea because of like very cheap like nice hotel, right? We got insane baller room vodka. Trump's dad's hotel shoutout. Ivanka trump. And then it was like what can go wrong. We're going to drive there on Thanksgiving Day. Here's what can go wrong, you can drink empire too much the night before and wake up like very just not feeling autumn shout out to Molly Lambert, whose party we went to the night before it was madness. Also shout out to you for pouring me into a cab. I don't even remember that. I know are you dancing couch? That's like an incident with the couch. Let's go the hangover issue. It was a hangover shoe. That was like promptly solved by watching a lot of movies the next day, we planned poorly in there were no snacks at your house, which was like a rookie mistake, and then we get on the road very late, like I want to say, like around four or five o'clock, and assume that we can just like roll up to 'em out or something. And it's just like a regular Thursday, California privilege, you just think in and out is always going to be there for you. I'm gonna say. I'm gonna say something controversial in, like in and out. But, like we can talk about that another show. I'm just saying it would have been really nice while hung over on that thanksgiving to have some in and out man, anything would have been nice long story short every civilized human America is like sitting at their house, and so there was no food between Los Angeles. At Las Vegas. We have to stop at, like some weird Albert's ends and Rancho Cucamonga that shout out to the albertson's show now to the hot buffet at that Albertson still open, which was opened. But like weirdly MD's one memory is eating like a disgusting potato salad with no utensils in the parking lot. We ate in the car like with our hands like animals. I know it was it was really touch and go, though. So but you know. Brought us back. But then the rest of the ritual, listen to this really rock and radio station. And the DJ would say every once in awhile shout out to my thanksgiving warriors on the road, and that really carried us which I have to say that, like we did not have the kind of family relatives whatever trying holiday that a lot of people have on thanksgiving. But like it is true. Sometimes you got to be a holiday warrior. Yeah. We you know this was like all our false. And then it was really funny. We got to Vegas and realize that we are not Vegas people in that we went to bed really early and the next day we were up too early. All these activities people in Vegas. Don't start doing shit until eleven pm, and we were like this is this is not I'm brand for us. I mean it's so funny like Vegas. Always seems like a better idea than it really is. I feel about Vegas. I just remember Facebook checking into you into Toby Keith Barr. I let me tell you that has come back to haunt me so many times, because I don't check in anywhere on. Facebook. And so every once in a while Facebook will be like checkout, where your friend and has been the only place that comes up is Toby Keith's. I love this bar and grill. So, so it's so funny because it's the only place I ever checked into because I think they had just rolled out that feature. And, and I thought it was a Larry. I know you're like Lola check you in here. And I was like, right now, it's not is ridiculous. But anyway, shall out to all the thanksgiving warriors. Let indoor you're crazy family to all of you who went home with a significant other and out of their families. Crazy, too, or just like to argue about politics, all day. And also shout out to like the far more pleasant friends giving warriors which I don't think even have to be a warrior at all for giving. It's just so pleasant I only I only do friends giving me to third policy man, first recorded use of Ivanka Trump's dad if on Carr's, dad. Also, this Elmer since parking lot story is, is funny because I don't remember ever telling it on the podcast. But of course, we of course we did. Of course, we, we've told all our good stories on this show. All right, next up is I also love what he's episodes are called the previous one was called thanksgiving warriors. This one is called sexy belly button feeling. Just like Gina. Are you naming these what else we received a letter varied Munin, dear to me? So I'm going to read it so you do. Hey, ladies. Okay. So I get this weird sensation of Jain anytime somebody such as my belly button, always all girls must feel this until I told my boyfriend about it. He thinks his his both hysterical completely alone on this issue. Tell me, I'm not thank so much less. Hade lex hade is a wonderful artist and you should check out her like paintings there. Unreal. Lex. I don't wanna tell you how to your life, but your boyfriend has got to go. He is not a doctor or his this body shaming boyfriend who's, like, no, I don't think that he's body shaming as much as he's like not understand. When I phoned, this Email inbox, and I like legitimately screened because I thought that for a moment this woman, I were the only two people that felt this and then after some like reassuring googling. Yes. Mayor not alone. This is completely normal. I mean when you told me about this Google sexy bellybutton feeling and receive many results. So clearly, her boyfriend cannot even Google is what I'm saying. Listen, we're not all dating doctors, Sam don't bring a medical issue to him ever again. Ludicrous, but just happens. Teat hoople feel this, this happens to me. I mean, not like a casual grays of the bellybutton, but like, you know, like a finger in there. Yes. So, So, Chris. Now, think about it. I feel like you know, it's one of those things where in the right moment, if you're like all the way in there because the muscle systems are all like, once you get below the belly button, I feel like it all connects to the Clinton someway in somewhat. I mean like this to me has nothing to do with sexy time. She said, I'm very diligent about belly button cleaning. You know, various belly button activities. But it's thing that I've known since I was like, super Yang. I'm like this is this is a no-go zone like. Uplink. I think this is awesome. I'm kind of jealous that I don't have. I don't experience this outside the context of sexy moment. I can't just stick my finger in my belly button right now. And get get a nice tickle. I'm sad. Get a nice tickle is right here. What is the internet? Several office. Mike God careful careful, the search terms, you use your belly button is one of your Rajin assume. So when you do that you're basically, kind of tickling at which trigger has the kind. Feeling everywhere in some cases down there. It's just. Just down there. No. This is not the this is like tumbler MD. But here's the actual smart person. She's like, although, most diagrams of the female sexual organs, exclude this detail. There is tissue connecting the belly but men reproductive organs leftover from our days than in the uterus man has it sounds plausible to me because fetus has received nutrients from from slash expel ways the umbilical cord removed about men. There's a tube that connects our bladder to a belly button, which doesn't completely disappear after birth. I am. Yeah. And this is called the tease pot spot between the bladder wall and the Jonah incredible weight. So does that mean does that mean if it's only because of proximity to the vagina or are there, some men who get the sensation to? I don't know this is only talking about my man. I'm as ING, thank you, lack. A man who has this podcast has teeth spot holler out of you careful you we get some. Serious email. I don't I wanna know I always assume this was everybody was like this is why people don't play with their belly buttons to sexy. I guess I just thought people didn't play with their belly buttons, because most of them are enemies. Like a body part that hangs off people play with that all the time. But, like more inward facing stove interesting. That's not a drawn out theory. And in fact, I wouldn't even recalled it in theory until I just heard it come out of my mouth. So. And which dangling body parts. We tend to play with. Anyway, this clean something new today. Yeah. Well, I think that's it for us. We have a little bit of news on my God. And yeah, the news is both sad, but ultimately happy, I feel which is breaking up. No. Don't even joke about that. That's what people are thinking. You're right. They are thinking about that. They're like, mommy and mommy or fight it. But instead, the band is coming back bigger and banner. So we such Oliver listeners were going to be taking a little break for couple of episodes. Probably through this month and October. And we have a ton of really cool stuff that we're working on that. We can't really tell you about right now, but we will in due time including tech upgrades. So we don't sound like we're talking to you from the bottom of two different wells. You know, can't wait to never fit in my closet ever. Gown right. I, I mean, I don't know if we can eliminate the closet, completely, but, you know, we're going to try, I'm coming out. Podcast. Hey, it's time for spring cleaning, and we are not talking about your closet.

You know, many things happened in two thousand sixteen but I will say that I am very, very, very happy to revisit Karen pences, aka mother her towel, her towel charm business. What does scam? What see scam? I can't believe I forgotten about that man against simpler times. Can we talk about Karen pens, though, please our future second lady? So don't even. So don't even. So this article is about Mike pants and Ivanka's, Dodd and step mom. But so anyway, it's like even their wives are cut from different cloth. Mr. Pence's wife. Karen, a former ala mentally schoolteacher self distinctive towel. Charms outta Ana company. She created called. That's my towel term. Mr. Trump's Milania a former model, who has posed naked markets, a line of gold jewellery and timepieces, branded with her name. Some Alania is selling like, legit jewelry and the New York Times, like face recognize that, like Karen pens is selling wine. Charms, they're six dollars and twenty five cents a piece and promised to help you keep your towel distinct from other beachgoers towels. Yeah. Also, do you think that like, really she was like, because their religious they can't sell mine, Sharm? So she had to make it into a towel charm. I don't know. Actually, what are these look like I'm like doing a going out? I'm looking at them now and I'm dying. There's a baseball glove one there's a clam towel on, there's a hotdog. I'm getting a dog. Most of us. Here's the thing. Most of. Oh, yeah. Most of us have matching Bethune beach towels. So it's easy to get them confused who is. Peaks, L confuses. Somebody else also was Karen when you go to the website, the that's my towel, charm website. Tell term dot com. It says thanks for your interest. Intel charms, the businesses currently on hold much like your husband's campaign, soon will be. These quotes, are killing me. I van so many times, where I was swimming in a friend's beach house pool early using their matching beautiful beach towels, looked and behold, I would go in the water for dip and up to the house for beverage. And when I came back, my towel it was gone someone else had grabbed my towel unknowingly, because all the towels look the same. This is not a problem. People have they're working so hard to be like we're normal Americans like we go to Chili's, even in New York. And then you confess that you hang out at lake houses all the time like get it together. These are contradictory. You know how mid western people are there. All have that secret money all of them. Oh my God. I'm gonna let that one go. I'll Karen ones towel of Karen zone. Elect Karen how. We got to talk to some really amazing people in two thousand sixteen including Lucy MacBeth, who is now in congress. But this was one of our very first reported episodes, and we talked to listeners for gun owners, and this was like a first of its kind, call your girlfriend episode. I am listening fast and the mother of Jordan Davis and faith and community. Outreach leader for every time for safety. Maybe you can start by talking about how you got involved in this issue, I got involved in violence prevention, which absolutely had no clue about the gun culture. The gun. Dimic Valance pedantic. I didn't really have that much of an idea about what was really going on in the country until till Trayvon Martin was murdered. And then, you know, Jordan was murdered very shortly thereafter, seven months after and so I just out of my anx. My anger. I wanted to know you know, why the, the faith community was not standing up and speaking out about morally and ethically. What was happening in the country, and I wanted to understand a little bit more about that than culture in the gun laws, and how under our existing gun laws, if people were dying in the streets, this proportionately, you know, young male color. And so how do you I mean, obviously a lot of people who are gonna listen to this have not had a personal experience with gun violence, that is so devastating or have not have not really had affect someone in their family. How do you talk to people kind of like the folks were describing who don't seem to think they have a personal stake in this issue? And how do you how do you convince them that this is really all of our problem? Well, I, I basically say that, you know, if you think that you are immune to gun violence than yourself. Mistaken because I for one thought that we were would never be affected by we weren't living in the community that wasn't Scott's by done violence. You know, we never had guns around the house. You know, Jordan was afraid of guns. We knew Jordan, within an environment, very safe environment and I thought I'd done all the right things. I thought that you know, I home school him. And, you know, lay lay there really good grounding and faith for him. And, you know, we were, you know, believers and just doing so called all the right things. And you think because you believe that you're doing all the right things that you are not liking to be a subject of violence. But that is absolutely not true. Because our gun cultures becomes so expensive gun laws have become so loosen ambiguous, that people are using their guns anywhere that they want to people are deciding for themselves to take Matt. Enter their own hands or shooting. I asking questions later people are using their guns as a means to silence people that don't look sink act like them. You know, people are acting out the implicit biases and racism through gun violence, and that if you think that you are immune to it. No one is, you know, gun violence, infiltrated the church and violence has infiltrated LGBTQ community gun violence has infiltrated every facet of society. Also, when we were planning this episode, we recognize that all of us are kind of on the same page about not being into guns. And so we sent out a call for listeners to get in touch with us, if they were gun owners to talk about why. And I think that this personal safety question their answers to that were were interesting. My name is Jesse pal. I live in a quite. All town in northwestern Montana. Mighty Mr Pomes on. Oh my name's Alexis Lambert. I live in Florida. My name's Jess Harrelson, a currently live in Brooklyn, New York, but I grew up in Sheridan, Wyoming. And yeah, I grew up around guns guns is just part of the culture of Wyoming, are I personally have three guns, but between like might the guns that I grew up with my dad and my brothers Hogar, probably like sixty or seventy my experience with guns is that I'm a died in the wool liberal. Never had any experience with them until I started eating, my husband I could never see myself using a gun to protect myself from an intruder or something. But having it there when they're alone lead at night, you know, there's a little bit more security in that look at it from this way, I'm like a queer woman in imagine me living out, like say move back. To Wyoming to like not a very populated area out on a ranch. And I was living with my wife or my girlfriend, maybe I would probably wanna have some guns, like just for protection. If someone comes into my home with the intent to do me harm. I know that I have the resources to protect myself and my dog. Because if you try full with my dog, I'm going to shackle you from your mortal coil boy, to really be in your Pat. I know I'm like you hear not align issues. Oh my God. The pet loving fan base is gonna come after us. So. I've never gone back to listen to it, but the post election episode that we did was probably very depressing. Like, I'm I'm like, getting depressed just thinking about about the election. And also the the way that we felt about recording after that. And so that was also. That's, that's a twenty sixteen moment for sure. Yeah. And like really feeling that I don't know. I mean it's funny because in retrospect, I remember how hard it was to turn on a microphone and try to figure out something of use to say, you know, I also appreciate the fact that we're in some ways just still in the mentality that we were in the first day after the election. Right. Like it was like the first step of like a sustained attitude shift like for some of us and for others, like, you know, more business as usual with more public recognition of what was going on. So you can fast forward if you don't wanna relive that trauma. I am fast forwarding. Here's 2016. Boom, welcome to call your girlfriend a podcast for long distance besties everywhere. I'm not too. So an I'm an Friedman. Bigs. I. Also, silver lining of all of this is just like hearing from all of the women in, you know, like in our lives who are. Oh so true as dedicated invested as we are in just being free. And that was really awesome. The women on my when I like to call my personal board of directors. What them Email this morning. She was like, well, you know, like everything has got to ship. But guess what we are still going to get paid. And it was like this exhortation about, like knowing your value knowing your worth, and just like fighting as hell so that, like all women, get paid. And I was like, yeah, I got ACLU bills coming in. So. Now, I've committed to a monthly donation. Wink. You know, it's like, oh, my little liberty equality, children, gotta feed everyone, but I love that. I love it. Like that was her this morning. She was like hi like Hello like women freelancers like how are we going to pay this week? And I love that. I was like, yes. Like Our Lady web strong. It's true. And like every I don't know. I think that like relying on your personal eighty web, and like that flood of text messages, and the phone calls. And that is also a nice silver lining like that reflection of the people who care about you and want to support you no matter what kind of despotic regime has just been elected. Recite were angry. But like we're not gonna we're not gonna stop. So that's the only good thing for me. That's gonna come out of this. That's the headline said angry knock on stop stop, you know, just like if this means like a rededication to being braver, and speaking out more and just going on a limb and being there for your friends, and your neighbors than hell like I'm yeah. And doing stuff that doing stuff at aligns with your beliefs. But like probably makes you little uncomfortable or maybe feels like this too far. I think that this is like the moment for stuff like that. Okay, twenty seventeen. I feel like this is the year that we kind of started to come into our own with a few bigger interviews. I mean obviously, we've been interviewing people since day one, but really starting to get some like higher stakes conversations. And I think both of us have gotten a lot better on this front. Like that's one nice thing about having a retrospective moment is like okay like here, here's where you can hear us star to be pros in our own way. This is not about the buck, but it's about eight buck. We read that you were really into the frontier books. Thorough. We were wondering who is your Leila. Probably my oldest friend. We became best friends, and six grade, or name is Betsy. And she and I have been through all of the ups and downs of our lives together, and she's smart and loving and supportive, and never thrown my doll into a great. I mean she really terrific. So probably, I've great friends. I'm blessed by really good girlfriends, but she's the one that goes the farthest back and it's still so much a part of my life. You're right. Really beautifully about the women in your life, and those about your daughter about your mother and a lot of friends that something that was really front of mind for you. When you were writing the book. Well, it was a media for a couple of reasons. You know, I wanted the book to be both personal and political, because I know that for a lot of people this election was traumatic and it needed to be a story about resilience, not just mine, but others as well as what happened with all of the forces that were at work. My girlfriends were by my side through this whole campaign. They were giving me good advice. They would be meeting up with me on the campaign trail, they'd be just a constant presence. And after I lost, they rallied around and they know me as the pushy friend, I write in the book, how I'm always giving unsolicited advice about everything in my friends is role, but they became the pushy friends, and they would call and say, I'm coming to see you with you wanna see you're not, or I'm taking you to the. Peter, whether you wanna go or not, I'm sending you books that I think you should read and you better. It was so great. And so, my friends really provided so much support in the wake of what was devastating and shocking defeat and still are, yeah. We talked to Margaret Atwood about to stop you. Thank you so much to you. All right. Again. You're not gonna use that you naughty, girl. When I made fun of her right? No. How many takes polo could we do? Bye. This is this. It's audio video audio. Radio. So what are you going to do with it? We're going to put it on our podcast podcasts, which is clear girlfriend. About what the premise is a conversation between two long distance friends in my friend who lives in New York. Okay, so often the episodes are catching up. But this episode will also feature you a special episode about what you're going to say, I'm talking to Margaret, Atwood on your girlfriend in New York. It's going to say, oh my God. I'm so jealous. That exactly she got to interview Hillary Clinton without me. So the theme of this episode as more famous, I mean, is she? What are your thoughts on Hillary Hillary fan? I think Hillary got really bombarded with seventeenth century, which imagery during the election. I mean, the misogyny was extraordinary, right? I mean, I'm not an American. So I don't get to vote and those elections about, of course, we watch everything you do with great interest. And that was. Very, very strange were you surprised it was strange to you was I surprised by the result or ramming of her? That's have century, which I was, I was surprised that it was so overt, let usually the misogyny is more concealed. This was right out splat in your face. So everything got a lot more overt during that election than usually it is, I feel like that's a great intro to a lot of your work has misogyny that splat out in your face as you as you put it not co. Well, yeah, yeah sure, but not the real life stuff. So the realistic novels the misogyny is more covered although often, quite extreme, but not so public, it's true. I mean, I think the female characters in your books, especially deal with the full range of terrorizing they deal with the full range of micro aggression, Tumaco aggression. Right. I'm Alan Pao. I am the co founder and CEO of a nonprofit called product include. And I'm also the chief diversity and inclusion officer at the Cape or center and a venture partner at Cape or capital. And now you're an author as well. I know exciting when he was reading the bark specifically, one of the excerpts that was in that ran in New York magazine. Also, the thing, I, I remember just being so shocked at some of the examples that you gave where, you know, I think that sometimes like when you're a woman at work, you're just like oh, did that person do is that thing because I'm a woman, and if you're a woman of color, you're definitely, am I being paranoid like what's going on? But some of the examples like classic textbook nineteen fifties. You know like if you had to if you had to draw, what discrimination was or like sexual harassment at work. It was like you cannot get clear, the not, why do you think that it's taken people, especially in technology so long to realize that that goes on in our field? It's really good question. I think it you know, I try to look back at myself, like I didn't really think about it until you know, I had been in it for several years. And it's partly because you do wanna believe it's America talk do wanna believe that everybody's being treated fairly, and you go through the system and you see these problems. I think maybe it's just that one person. Maybe it's just this one day, and it's small, and it's not every single thing every single day because you're doing things outside with other people. Or you're, you know, writing your own investment memo, or your meeting with entrepreneurs, it's not until you really lift your head up and for most people when you're struggling, you're, you got your head down, and you're really trying to get through task by task in it's not you don't have the time or the energy to kind of pull up and put all the pieces together, and connect all the dots to figure out all this is really much bigger than I am. And this is really a huge problem because also you don't you can't do anything about it. Right. So that's a little bit demoralizing to pull up and see while this is a huge problem, I'm never gonna get promoted, none of the women in my team. We're gonna get promoted we're never going to hire black person. We're never gonna hire next person. That's complete immortalizing. So. You at least for me I put some blinders on and I kinda hit from it until I couldn't. Yeah. And you know, we also the continued doing some like hyper focus, kind of reported episodes. I cannot believe that the pelvic power episode is from twenty seventeen. I don't know in my mind where it fits, but that both feels really a long time ago and so close. And I think this is also the year that we really like our editorial really became something that we all like we all started carrying about not just you. So I think of 2017 really as the year we're, we're like, okay we figured out how to use these microphones like how do we actually make a thing? That makes sense. Every week. Onto the long awaited public health episode. I'm so excited about this. How are you feeling? I you know, my pelvis feels amazing Ferro. I feel. Maybe we should go back because I was just asking you about this. I almost forgot about the original inspiration that made us want to do this episode which was each of us, having some bad experiences with the kind of collagen slash doctors who are looking at our pelvic region. Yeah. So a couple of months back, I think that we both got really vulnerable about bad like guy. No experiences. Yours was like hyper-specific and mine was very much like I cry every time, it's the worst, but also like my new feminist doctor was like scooter, but all the way to the end, and that was like revolutionary for me. But scoots revolution. Sounds so like in almost like sounds really funny because the guy knows like one doctor that if you are a woman, or somebody who identifies as a woman, you will go to at least once and there is nothing pleasant about it. And unfortunately for like health reasons, you'll probably go to like a lot. And so a lot being like at least once a year hot tip, when you make your you're gonna call this, your primary care physicians. Very exciting so, yeah, so after we talked about these bad experiences. We got so many emails both from people who had also had bad experiences with their gynecologist, but also from some people offering information and resources. And so we've long been plotting episode where we talk to actual experts, not just Google MD's like us about what's up with pelvises Belva Cal, and let me tell you, first of all, we have so many like pelvic. Nick Xiros in the community. It's like it's kind of baffling. I know you can't see me, but this is my not surprised face. But also, I'm super proud because this is the best community. It is the community, but, you know, and also it's, it's really fascinating. Because I think this is what I've learned from that. Right. Is that for for a long time on this show, like I have complained in some form or fashion about, like pelvic exams, and how much hate them or about, like my cramping in general like all of the like everything is unpleasant down there, and it's not cool. And every time I would do that at least one or two people, one of listeners would Email and say, like, hey, have you talked to your doctor about pelvic health? And it was like a real time, reminder that, like, oh, this is what friends do like when you complain about pain in your body. They're like, you know, not trying to diagnose you like I mean, it was crazy, but, you know, they're just like oh, like this sounds like a thing like we talk about all the time. And so it was such a like real time reminder for me that like this is one of the benefits of friendship and also like the fact that, like women make themselves like emotionally vulnerable is that there is a world in which like somebody is listening to what you're like situation is and might even have solutions through totally and also provides the reality check that, like, hey, actually, maybe you don't just need to grit your teeth and put up with a really unpleasant, medical experience. Like maybe there's a better way. Or maybe there are more resources for you. Like I have relied on friends, so many times to remind me of that. So, yeah. Shout out to our extended. Yeah. The real lesson here. You're right. Is if there if you are in pain about anything like that it's not a normal state of being and there's a difference date of being, but you can be. And, you know, so a couple of months ago when also like when we both talked about, like the importance of having, like, progressive holistic, OBGYN's, there's Helen, nurses in this family and people, emailed, and one of the common refrains that I heard was like, if you want a doctor who is progressive feminist and, like probably into some like holistic stuff, you should like consider seeing midwife and what I like thought midwives or for people who were imminently having children. Like if I was honest, I didn't know the difference between a midwife Dula. I thought do was a hipster midwife and. Oh tomato tomato. Hayme thing. But it turns out that actually like midwifery is like, really fucking bad ass. And York to be pregnant to go see a midwife, and they're like, very respectful of taking your entire like situation into hand. When you go see them, okay? Onto last year twenty eighteen my God. Twenty eighteen twenty eighteen is the year. We really like double down on our scam content. Scammers. They're just like us. My god. So the related story last week, which was about this guy from Colombia, who convinced a bunch of rich people in Miami. He was a Saudi Royal the detail in that article, which is in the Washington Post for also incredible it includes the fact that the door buzzer on his apartment unit said, Sultan. Facto, he had her chis- diplomatic plates for his Ferrari from EBay. And it's another thing I didn't even know that you could do. Right. Like it has never occurred to me to EBay and go like. Diplomat place totally so, so yeah. I mean, like, blah, blah, blah defrauding, investors. It's fine. But also make some of his lies that are leading up to the lie that he was a Saudi Royal pretty amazing, including him, telling his classmates that his family owned a local resort, or that he was quote, the son of actor Dom, deluise. In this category. At least do you think that, like a lot of these people like this is a category that a lot of us could fall into in the sense that, like we've all had, like a fantasy life, you know? Yes. And some of these people just take it too far, it's like I'm like a happy to just fantasize. I'm not actually willing to do the work just seems like a lot of work. But if you were going to create like a fake, Royal scam persona where would you be from what would your story be? I don't know. I think that in order for the city successful you need to, like, look apart like this, the Saudi guy I like kind of commend him because I was like you're like you're doing good. But I'm also like I would be afraid to lie about being Saudi royalty like that's too. I feel like it's too fraught. I would go some like very tiny obscure country or I like I don't know. But also like my fantasy is non should be like Princess. So this is not what it would. This would not work for okay? But this, this fake Saudi prince, quote purchase, the entire first class cabin. So he could be alone on a flight like that is like I am. Sorry. Like you had scam kind of money. That is like one hundred percents something you would do. Him money, I would have a private plane. If somebody has, like all of the money to purchase two first class in airplane. That's like, why don't they have access to their own plans? Those are the alarm bells that should be going off free. You in summary, fake, royals category tagline, quote, my money is all tied up in investments right now. Hallmarks fake. Royal include confusing backstory, several aliases cash payments, all the best parties, and I would add like maybe some EBay license plates. Oh my God. And the natural habitat is the lobby of a five star hotel. Also the year where Gina made her hosting debut with her Bye-bye episode, which honestly like a fan super favourite like when we ask people about episodes. They love people mentioned this episode so many times like genus perfect voice, gene, is perfect aditorial sensibility. I also love that up. Assode says thanks for sticking with me on this journey into the many multiple experiences of bisexual people. My next guest is writer. Katie disobeyed auto, it's, it's always good to talk to a literary minded open friend, about their life experience. And I think it is, it's so interesting like, like money when you talk about sex, you're really talking about emotions and values, and our sense of selves, and how we express ourselves and around whom and how much right that it feels like even though I thought like, oh, we're going to have this kind of smutty conversations like well no we're talking about. What about personal stories on life experience, because that's, that's how the stuff all gets wrapped up. One thing, that's like I think that the kids are doing that is kind of on the smut side just to put a little excitement. And. Oh, yeah. Is I think when we were coming up, there was like a real kind of condescension towards the idea of sexual experimentation? Right. Like I say, more women were considered either foolish for sexual experimenting or it was like four the male gaze to experiment with women. I kissed girl, and I liked it version totally. Yeah, the kissing someone at a party having a public thing rather than something that's -veloping one on one between people like a lot of lesbians of our generation. We're pretty anti the idea of experimentation because, like, you know, people get hurt when the experiment like two women who thinks that they may be one have sex with each other. And then one of them is like, actually, like I love our friendship, but I'm not sexually I'm sitting women and I discovered that by trying to have sex with you. I mean that. You go blow. The moral of the story is like experimentation is like mean and bad. But, like, that's how you figure out who you wanna fuck. And you had have to experiment, kids, these days are experimenting more, and then that gets wrapped up in the way that we talk about sex in the country, in general, which is like it should be normal and chill, and cool for teenagers to be sexually experimenting with each other like. Normal insulin. Cool, if a tornado doesn't want to. But if you want to you should, and it should just feel open, and we should try to create a culture where like we're just like if you are sixteen and you feel like you wanna fuck you should fuck, and like, as long as you're not exploiting anyone else in the process, or compromising yourself understanding that, you, you may hurt people emotionally, which is which is different than exploiting people, you know, like if you genuinely think that you might wanna have sex with somebody, and then you realize you don't and you hurt that person that sucks ass. But it's fine. That's normal and fine. But like you know, if you mischaracterize yourself in order to gain access to somebody sexually, that's like until that's highly highly show. Over the last couple of years. It's been really even though you and I do this show in the confines of our of our closets. Our respective closets. It's been really really, really cool. One to go out on the road and meet the seaway G community, but also to see all of the good that see why does together. We raised many, many dollars for Zonta Africa. We had the bleeding for Amina blood drive. Hey, I know we had God, what was the you know, like, we've had various really cool tabling partners at our live shows, one of my favorites, were, you know, where the women in DC who collected all of those, the menstrual stuff. I just love that anytime that we get together. There's always an opportunity to do something good and someone in the community. Always steps up its true love our listener community.

#304: The Last Dance

"Augustine hosing this show with your host dog. Use Gino's took take the tint. Welcome back to the losing the show episode Number Free Zero four with me yours agonizing as upset number free zero four that before we start to show some housekeeping. If you want to follow me on social media please do onto a conference Agostino Zinger Augusta's a one word on twitter force last Agassi's Zinger from a million to Saint Andrew Instagram dot com focus. All One word. I guess there was one word not. That's out the way in which this show of course subscribing the commodore. If you're listening to a podcast actually please share the show. Cupid five are typical findings discovery. Just like you have not only go so here. We are plea. I'm hoping I'm finding in good spirits hoping that you're in a good place. Hopefully you're dealing with things as it comes along your way as I am myself era. It's been it's been been interesting. I think I've done that thing now. Where Pacific checking? The News like you know sometime in the afternoon once a day and in about resume day. There's not really much update. You have that a checklist sometimes. Don't trump Larry ously kind of going out the president with him. It's just turned to this. Really Weird I think some polit- some people who have fallen porteous causing an. Im would have probably hoped that this crisis the best trump where you would have been acting quote unquote presidential. But if anything is basically showing that he just doubled tripled down quadrupling down and everything he doesn't like normally if I think now that you've gone to what he does. I think he just sits in front of the TV recording every trump appearance that he does but every press conference. This guy called him avenue group top of check or show. You actually confront him. Aren as it iron group off. I'm going to say he probably volks or something or I assume one. That's going to lead in places because he doesn't offend of the Odor Donald at this guy. He should for them on this program also. He's he's handled with a T R U P. He a are so. Are you a report? And he has a journalist Vauxhall Committee whatever she does this from sharing on screen. Got All the press briefings that trump with us from the White House. He says she gets all the SCREENGRABS. Superheroes rupees wasn't always computer live on the ESPN probably by clipping up interesting questions and quits and all that stuff and it's just interesting to see how competitive trump is hoping instead of it being a time to galvanize the country even even if because. I think some people were saying that most of the reason why he's so combative is because he's worried that this crisis is going to lead to him is going to damage his reelection bid for next term which is understandable. I guess there's some respects I I know we'd want our leaders to be more altruistic to been more selfless but really truly man or woman if you decide to enter presidential race you're pretty sociopathic right. You have a pretty large ego in your quest of Senate in some regard if you think you should be the leader of the free world especially right or you should be a leader really saw nation state right you something in your brain wiring. That means that you're not your average everyday folk so if you competitive press conferences if you have these widow personal personality takes and stuff and I don't know I asked. Context is making a graze creatives most fantastic artists people who wanNA leave audiences in all dead ones are. I should be left to be widows and you don't want to iron them out in tournaments like a boring Liverpool Street. Why because our our in the first unit you wanted to be as weird as possible so the fact that trump attacks opponents under reminded but you would afford in this time of need when things are going crazy and visible via invisible enemy. I think that he's at war with you. The four tries to be a wartime president in a US. I would partisan Bush government as a country and if anything that could may be helped him could have maybe help to slice on because he defended that he's probably worried about is that his base is. We're going to back a minute right busier fans going to be going to be a fan. I guess he's worried that because I think from reading between lines and just repeal of people say he's opposed to didn't win the popular vote in the state Senate what he was facing gets Hillary. Hillary won the popular vote as just from a population. She got more votes in favor. But then you're meant to also get votes vendor was con- Congress or whatever people that say no see so why an older wrinkly you've been together for them to write in is couldn't politics dude but if that's the case looking at in he might be worried that because he lost the popular for the first time around because this is happening in my affected over popularity with a nation of rural because it means that Madrid want but he was able to finagle the system and games off of the C. Cool did it. He smashed it but if this is happening people already taught blame him for it. What you think. Even if you're an ardent anti trump right orange bad you call me and says his four. I think everyone's dealt with it pretty polio. Apart for maybe two or three countries. It's not been no one's got no one's going east already right. Everyone's kind of good ones probably at best like a C. Plus Ri- Oil. Loa be done that well so the fact that he's had some missteps here and there he shouldn't be chastised for and again. You complete him directly for this virus. Come into this. Oh go into the states wherever it may be but yes just funny to just to see how combined somebody's price per junkie's arm and our show one dimension can get one up here is kind of one clip. It's just always been oxygen on. What is a nail salon so the caption is ox? How it's possible for Topaz and Jewelry Open. Burke says if there's a way that people are social services and duties fees and they can do these things. I don't know how Tattoo Art on this because the people of Atlanta wants to hear from you as well as much as they want to give their governor continuously honey you successive safely hair salons and nail salons and Tattoo Parlors. Where people were. We're this is enjoyed inherently close together. I think what I've been trying to communicate over the last several days. It's it's really important that the governors and mayors communicate critical information to their communities and show very clearly the data we remember wanted this data and evidence based the data that took about all this. Some critics are saying that you are using the virus in this crisis to follow through on that promise to reduce legal and no no. I want people that are in this country. I want our citizens to get jobs. I don't want them to have competition. We have a very unusual situation where something came in that. Nobody has seen for many many decades. Probably one thousand nine hundred. Seventeen would be the closest analogy. You look at it when you look at the contagion. Kind of contagion. We're talking about so no I'm not. I'm not doing that at all. I want one. But there's good ones we just took the lines the by condition you check out yourself and finally pays funny He to heat does with this stuff on it. Puts it out there and you can check and see if you're Orangemen Patio and they let's move on. I'm going to quickly go free all actually. There's a few bits on four of interest to find it whereas a hall on just to get some Cordova Outta weight and beginning. So there's a SIP planned. I bet she stumbled upon which is From Harvard get up on a plane. Such have here bevery once should probably linked this properly say done easily. But yes this is that there's a roadmap roadmap for pandemic roller right. I'm pre- interested about this because I think a lot of us of kind of glean from what's happening it's going to begin is going to be a long time before inskeep out to know how they were prior to this whole pandemic but I'm interested to see how different countries different governments decide to get people back into the workplace and also live in everyday lives and it just how do happen and also the changes that are going to happen into some everlasting changes. Oldham to affect us for decades. But just because usually you see it you know it's easier to show something donald to restore something for the most par. Anyone as front of House party where police shut down and restarted again. You lose a couple of people here in the vibe kind of dies out and it's never the same because if he's GonNa get closed and same with apply for country being shut down so there's interesting approaches that they're doing. There's this paper. I recently saw from Harvard. That's essentially of road but the kind of details a plan that they're trying to go with and there was one bit. I four here. That was really interesting on track. Get UP GUYS TRIPS. That the the the the copy so this is the this is planned. I found the second. Burma for Pantomime residents that kind of essentially gives I serve an idea on what we can expect how we can expect to go back to know more. So if you're listening to this you've got phase one two three and four. Which essentially one is where we're at now in. May and then it goes to forward we are basic your back up and running do with the fact that we love best around August so my initial estimate of it being September kind of is late true to bear but my overall skeptical kind of this war particular to noble next year like spring. Because where I forget it was you know W A COUPLE OF INDUSTRIES. Doug get take time to pick up again. They won't be around the people supporting those business in the first paid off. Because I'm sure there'll be an all people that's that'd be like you know what services over on a local restaurant with a support them in out every every night with my friends family and reconnect song. Get this money tipping well about these really cool things but there's GonNa be a few people who also kind of hesitant about heading out a little bit worried dig into maybe tell their friends or their family members the award and they have you know some sort of trepidation behind putting themselves in that kind of environment that all over the place at risk. So they're going to take some time to get breeding integrate back into society in the usual way they were before. And just some people are just gonNA newsflash out. There'll be some people who are going to move away who decide to Strip down on Extra curricular activities get back to the bare minimum liver quote unquote. Minimum is lifestyle. That's going to impact so I would say personally just you know If everything doesn't go as plea as we want it to go and if there's a second peak and saga forbid another epidemic comes out of nowhere? I would say for to get back to you remember as no more quote unquote definitely next spray. You'd see a probably less people are about wearing face masks whereas hit between now news of the year you know. See Everybody afraid to touch. Everybody wants to answer to Everett shops. People find because almost closer than people face masks gloves people sprang the air with fucking Lena Air Freshener. Shit antibacterial spray is going to be a man. This is happening between now and don't be surprised to see. I feel by spring. People would have chilled out. They've got a system and people. Don't be mobile expert. I fought the plan was a pretty interesting. About what businesses are. You Got Phase One. You've got stabilized. Essential Sectors one point maintain social distancing you test tracer provide support isolation and we train people to replace essential workers experiment with testing phase to expand essential workers expand the singer workers to increase short medium and long term needs addressed continue shortening social sector whether five social to expand social which is going to be difficult because of course should not included in the month of June. They're going to be people who are going to be tempted by the way especially under London is known for Pretty Shitty wherever and it's raining and whatever may be but it's been really beautiful these last couple of days and this already testing people patient so that month in the middle ever mentioned that June is going to be the one where it's going to be really crucial that people kinda knuckled down and band together because already you know. We're just approaching the last week of April coming up now and people are really suffering. Everybody get tempted to go out. So con- CDs Holding Holding on to accommodate kind of this for people to be maintained with May and June still coming up in July and then you hit interface freeze says in created their homes. So that will be when everybody will be allowed to go out but what media businesses will be back. 'cause that's won't be curious about four. I call it. Open the floodgates again if they start streaming that's why I wasn't sure that they would put live events back on again before August which is the date the FAA telling or the fails Europe or something maybe a Europe European UEFA my battalion the permed football around the world that they want to restart commissioned August so that means pre leaks is necessary before then right to swallow the places would make sure that whatever duffy. That's going to happen you. Would you have music really now? That Netherlands the Dutch lead Busy of supposedly spohn entire season career office null and void because they won't be able to start up before September so it was my. It was kind of hesitant on. My kind of suspicion was was a very short will be able to live events specially string them on. Tv or whatever will have you know. Remember some German chairman saying that they were going to have screens up around the outside of the stadium and have caused pogs in a copy. You know that does all schools cinemas in America. We saw by driving in a car park shared which to me now in public may be peninsula event. Baffled JUST CRAZY. Kind of breakout base of distancing measures. But if they can do in tandem they can do the kind of reducing the if they can take off the shackles. Say Hey you guys can come at your houses before the season starts can make it easier. You don't get people getting tempted to run out before the restrictions lifted but again who who's going to be out because you know I don't know you have to be sure how this Bryant for a drink to go out too busy bar straightaway. Now there might be a period of like `isolation for yourself just like make sure you're okay to come and give me Shaw. Few drags its actors the answer the killer and so is it. Rats newcomers that so sophisticated now or that exposure to expose the sophisticate traps or poisoning systems. You end up getting a bit more smarter. So the rats in the subway of the verdict way of are sending their more. We could Bridgman and sisters our in front to test it. The food that's laid out isn't covered in poison away with. Maybe so that will happen in hidden for us to humankind where people would be like. Let me let the dregs Lula over excite people go out I let people hosted people catch it again and now come on his toyed or there's some people just like you know coming is around so that's one s Jalozai late July here so ends their homes psych mobilize enough a ten percent workers sector recruit community and social service agencies to support communities in need temporary electorally relations allow certifications nature. Landon four you've got the four pandemic resilience for ten twenty percent of home offices reopened scores kind of kind of picks up again which is kind of August time and again is then depending on the peak not being as harsh as it has therefore costing some crazy thing that we haven't factored in coming into play but that out quite well I think for anyone that's involved Music's finish experience. Y stuff like junction to you know. That's all supposed to be cancelled because they could probably go away with pushing it back to August but he's still have to get equipment and get the people need to work on. You know that sort of stuff get a license is done before the Augusta anyway. So with everything being shut down and people working there he could pass each make it. Too Difficult. People are postponing. Because I'm sure all of them were under the assumption that you could potentially do. An event is the timber tug of Buck. No guarantee you can have people come into anyway. That's the thing you have to kind of keep in mind because something's open especially so that gives me the idea that again is going to be a need for of underground the most important open-air illegal quality just kind of fill that void for the time being for the people that don't mind in the Quintessential Standard Club. You have to pay it and tree in the security as balls and stuff and toilets. They'll have to win till delays September to get go in regard and then. I'm assuming there'd be. Some cycle are able to tore toward the end of July stone. Kind of do that first couple of shows. I'm assuming depending on where they go in the world democracy no more relaxed laws and some Southeast Asia. Might WanNa yet. I'm happy New Year to you. Might see you might see a big remember. When will the Middle East countries say countries have? Was it sometime last year? A distant festival peggy. Dj Deputy Green of anger because supposedly guys don't have the best humans rights record in the world and she took that payday right. You've been pulled that stuff so I'd imagine they'll be of Southeast Asian. Who Festival organizers Paul? You propose putting on events in the hopes of Of Help into repaired image of Asia worldwide nicotine as much as some you know Western based european-based as a people are upset about it. Fortunately the narrative that we have going on moment now is that you know this virus or spunk of China because you guys eat batsmanship so because of that is going to be a concerted effort for no of course people that live in the western side of it was to the side of the hemisphere with descent to educate people to know what's really happening. I don't know present different point of view. Maybe not you know from China your career. She is going to need to do all that. And then there's going to be an infamous countryside to to make sure that they have those people coming in a place. I Bali in a place like Vietnam. Singapore place like Thailand China even to a certain extent. David heavily on that. Toryism money coming in year in year out. So you can't at that dribble especially people then decide to take your manufacturing because that's a compensation to that were too interconnected. We need to put away and having manufacturing return to our countries. Which is something probably. I'm sure won't probably end up doing the nosy she actually cost to produce the NBA. You know what fuck that is. Just a deadly and wherever else via that news Move on a sort of was interesting. This is really cute. That was this video here. This little kid realize that driver train you to recommend his put up to check out at that age. Trains are the best in it. Pleasure out the tiniest feelings are super cool. That was one and then of course on the flip side as a video of Philip Seymour. Hoffman fallen cover of car and other for Mattress Company. You hear about these things from him especially innovates Comedians who You know I think especially pre podcasting days where they sort of had to make a name themselves to get more communicate which is always a weird thing how those entertainment she works and I understand you know what to be a star and went to game about it but how those guys managed to convince Comedians. The best way to become to get gigs to give them to laugh at your jokes. Give Bio tickets was to like do stuff that to jokes right of his commercials will be an extra movie or doing voiceover. Works had nothing to do rb funny. They somehow convinced that was great. Nate to parlay into your stuff is just nonsense whereas now they have been you know. Maybe it's just a person of happy April too graphic stuff like this small. Did learn how you can just record yourself doing your act of fucking around on vinyl top wherever maybe helps people help to the way that you're funny you've got something about you? A back in the day didn't have to do that right camcorder back. And they were five grand or some shit but yet they managed to do the whole and in the other thing too. In commercials also adult does a lot of money attached to them to in pre social media to your way to kind of get your stuff out. There was to have teeth these. Tv versus TV or TV at spots. Sometimes the bad the primetime the more premium you'd pay but sometimes you could stumble upon a viral hit that would resonate across the country gets free press Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and. Still the shit ton of vacuums and usually it was it was kind of been really nondescript places that had the best budgets right because you know they were making money hand over fist so. I guess it's Mattress Company to decided. It was a good idea to game to play guitar which I didn't know you get up early in the first place. Entrepot some cars or refit jump on mattresses parked on the roof is so funny. Let me get the. Hey this is Dean trumbull for the mattress as queen met a three threes. Hey this is Dean trumbull for the mattress man. Give me a call at three. Seven zero zero four sixty six for a limited time only. Dd mattress as Queen Mattress sets for ninety nine dollars and King said for one twenty nine you bounce on bouncing off. Just fucking say it helps. Because they know room hazard that he was he liked to have a good time so he might have felt it here in it. Crush as Econo- falls on the floor. I think he felt that all the way. Twenty nine like a Miss Poverty Qatar but that is definitely something that was going to end. Did they did run for that. If there was a rehearsal. But how else would they think is going to end? H- you'd have had to jump closest to the inside postal said when he jumped again he added on educated parents yourself was he meant to deal with just jumping in and what. I smile like. What was the end of this treatment and the guy says she runs weapons John Shit man? You Okay Fred is going to have that Guy Stuff. We gotta it got. Maybe Fake Obama. Christ is insane. Peyot can you? Can you do anything for the old exposure? Move on here. We have steph a freeman tick talk to. I give a shit about this. Really not particularly with challenging with this go with Steffi Freeman decided to make it into some sort of opportunity to attack the black race which. I'm very angry about Donati. Give ship out on. His book is a challenge of some sort of Missouri right where they were CDs. How does she watch this myself? I see what they say. Hey today we're making eggers said okay. So they're always gonNA leave it or put the camera on the words just above it so it's to goes to just kills this couple. They're in a bathroom as this challenge. Where they think you pretend to make some fake right so like taking the pace out those instructional cook Mike hand comes into frame something important so they stalled with d-actually dish. Would they want to be a paper? Din wetering as you heard the guy say and they poll being the ingredients in Cup to cup on top of which different things and visit players. I have black critical X. Next we have don't have a dad. Yeah Yeah and then. We have eat watermelon and fried chicken next. One is a make good choices. There's nothing there next. We have rob people specifically whites. Imagine Madame how in being able to have these kind of views boil inside of you and then also have the guts and the gumption start doing dancers onto dot gov is inspired but black popular popular backing music. Whatever may just wild in it like Magin come from somewhere right parents. Anita was you know I assumed Jews onto. Don't fed to own household. Everyone gets in there right. Wherever's Asian Jewish people wherever you will get in a household God Almighty they do that. Last one is go to jail. Okay so I guess that's the video so she's a. She's a senior that tense. Carso get into with as best you know. I think when it comes to cancelling them nobody fan but understanding. Mama's ideally people saw tagging her school. And she goes to call Carrollton School Blah Blah Blah Blah Georgia to has a very big population black people. Wow okay it doesn't and so anyway I I don't. I'm not really cancelling harm. No Fan of people should be allowed. There should be redeemed so everyone makes mistakes but I do. Vinas this something when they occurred. Just so that you're allowed to have you're allowed to have an emotional reaction to it now. I won't necessarily do it myself. I am going to be the one. Tha CAULERPA scorned dog. Someone to get rid by the people that filled a need to do is to civic duty right to go ahead and tell the school contacted being the emission person and get up some day. I look intels tools to do this at a copy on I get it the year. What a mistake to make especially now when everyone that home England time on their hands. Everyone's on social media ever going to see this. I think PRI- she probably could go away with it because I've come during the week of some rep again being seventy six person. Hollywood game seeping with somebody else that something could happen in the Newsweek mosque. This kind of you know random. College decided to go into a racist video making rent with her boyfriend in some small copy of planet. That would go on the rubber because it was a hub license that fund to do you know what I can make good use of my time. I get one over on. The white man is holding me down and get these fucking racist office platform and seem so what guessing by what the follow-up up was so that's the video of course in the Fonua. Was this apologize. I think it was too lavish taken away from US scholarship. Some of these screen shows quite painful to read it can ear fracking terrain. Voice again. Biggio you have to if you want to do the consequences so this is a post that I found from Wilkinson. Cherry is a crazy. How steph Hashtag definitely Freeman has changed in terms of take this as a PSA to call raises? Why PEOPLE TO RAISE? If you're not racist apply to you just because for five is into office doesn't mean that you can help you. We have no problem ruining life but she didn't. She didn't actually read it. That's a funny thing. She did it herself in imagine uploading it took for my people have got their private snapchat story. Things leaked online rights. Or what she did she think this Sonnino. Pf but this one screen show. We're looking at here. Where Skoll Stephanie Freeman says? No I'M NOT SORRY. What do you want me to say? The hell and then next person on the the common of took says at least my dad can play compared to have his whole finger away which is more than I can save the farthest negril woody. Jesus she's firing hall the end bombs in IT EXCRETES. Shit here we go of course. The contrast in the flavors is finding especially when it comes from people who know more average day people when they actually united severity of the issue. Because I think when you're that young you don't really know you're doing right. She's no high school. I don't know senior. Whatever she is right she's probably the twenty one years of age. You'll kind of bought at home. You've got nothing to do. You got you know you have these rates force anyway. I can understand why you might phoenix funny kind of emotional group of friends who also bags and scumbags whatever but you don't necessarily realize that you don't think five dollars a head you don't think about weapons next and you just think about the accident itself. Which is the high of immaturity but the contrast these two screens? Let's just frightening right. You've got this massive paragraph and you've got these quick on the previous online equally he's quickly. Oh no semiautomatic. Make you go away. So the second one of our apologize and says I want to apologize for their perm video. Posted a name. I'm wrong? It was my perfect is racist. See a stray frogger boyfriend in the bus. Now may use my boyfriend's racist and he slowly normalizing racism on me year. When did racism turn into some kind of the -tising charm? People did to somebody. Right usually are the dating somebody and they happened to drop some hard R. N. bombs in your presence in a derogatory way or even in a good way right. Just you know if that person wasn't black saint kind of thing around you you would probably twist you headed up. What right and then you make a face difficulties ation about it. And then he'd slowly but surely Oh shit this guy's in the KKK. And you make a decision. Do I stay do I go? But it's not something that you kind of get convinced about like okay. Paypal said why. Are you saying that would for this? Don't worry we'll talk about it tomorrow. This go by tomorrow. You will not find out what's going on right now. You could be living with a fucking murderer so decided that he somehow slowly but surely in a man what you could hit its highest Believe in these four and you know was somehow playing these images of luck aggressive Black people in prison being people up in some are trained to kind of hate. The this is insane really is really bizarre especially conditions in Georgia. This time around right like I don't get how you can suddenly build up these weird closet in up shoes lacking what it is. But let's go to apology Stood I should never have let him. I believe black saw human to all thanks. Darling made it. Image of Christ Bring Jesus. Imagine in one paragraph or a couple of lions. She's real boyfriend under the bus. She's giving us the benefit of we are human. That's nice of her to say. I didn't know that initials Jesus Christ's disappointed. Good okay cool and I want to apologize. I think God doesn't apologies because racism is my future and no one station ruined it. Yeah it should. It should don't like when people make mistakes if somebody ran someone over if you're if you actually run somebody over Diana's Caitlyn Jenner. You prison right. That's what should happen in it. But if you got the money and you know judges you might be able to get where they used to have that in a mark on New People know that you ran someone over and diabetes struggles to prison. So you you have to live with the fact that people know that you did. It is allergy in people. Know you did it. But you know he didn't do it but if you're a regular civilian and you do something either you decided to kind of go over to your ex's house and bludgeon the X. And everyone else inside with a knife so hard his hanging off you. You are publicly. Go to prison. That is what it is. If you make a gaffe online that is really egregious prosecute the wrong way. You just have had nothing nobody apology. I think the parties are fine if you want to actually tell people that your story but the apology in the hopes of trying to raise what you did so you can get your job back will get you know whatever may be also. You could make sure you don't lose out on your brand deals. His reese comic because once you do discount by keeping you should be scumbag enough to you. Know what I want to say is I know Zach you. I said if if it costs me this new gave it cost me presenting Gig on TV. I don't care because I want everybody to. I hate inwards cool do it? But then once your job goes away. Don't then gone incidence crying and apologizing. Say You may want mistake now you just. You knew it didn't work out for you because it matters defeat start backing you up as she most of the people online social those sixteen year old white goes into deciding you know or has really funny to make derogatory videos. You know based on your color of your skin on anybody in the World Asian wave may be imagined. That becomes what. She didn't apologize where we wouldn't so you because every few years port on if your fee and again you said your dad is rich cousin came to Saudi up anyway. I want to apologize. Please don't contact my college too late especially if you mentioned it there in the first one was going to do is contact you call. It is my future. Imagine what people are doing that. Probably calling pretending they're fucking Fox News or some shit to add severity to what a mistake. It's my future in one mistake though is really if you did this once. You probably know things and number in my life. Also please stop of the difference again. I apologize the city Steph. Imagine saying that right and being upset. People are threatened to kill you. I will be worried about that. The last worried about sprint. Kill you like that's what you're worried about really you an incident. You're sixteen unit as part of the cost. That's what it isn't it that's like somebody's saying. I on a comment on the video is what it is excreted. Show she says He. I promise. Dedicate after serving God. Jesus Camp No. What do you have Treatment that is supposed to be what can convert people from gay to straight right. They don't have won two straight get which is interesting but then you have it straight. Gay supposedly right. Yeah these conversion therapy cancer. They go to. So why are they gonNa have these weird conversion cancer? Go to where they somehow make you like black people again. What they're going to stop saying next greatest hits and Shit and there's some squish auntie records and they're gonNA show you Powell's good suddenly like people who are promising. Dedicate my life to seven quite intriguing every human being thanks and I do not expect the public. Forgive me nor do I deserve it. You probably won't get universities but are pretty good. Focus imagine this pandemic retards praise in terms of us. Jobs making news precious family members and then he's also got this fucking go. Georgia prayed to God. Please let these people not very much again college because decided to do n would a hard off videos boyfriend fuck me. By one of the boyfriend is he's probably doubling down in eatery could afford cake feel to guns upright by pretty good. Forgive my sins. That's the only way we hill by do take issue who've wanting all okay let let tell us please. Hatred does not define the absolute tap salute fucking balls on this girl to suddenly tenant lecturing Azerbaijan. Hatred may remember the tape whoop threatening bullying. And cancelling me will not resolve the world's problems obviously now but this will of helped me sleep better at night right canceling. That would definitely help please. I urge to see different pieces. Sippy things she took it herself she meet the peace really in it for the right. If you call up the school go hug and so you'll probably sleep like a baby. You did your job. You are choirs lamb and this is telling you she also have peace. She told the Internet people. Have People get their piece? This is Russian. Tarragon people down if you give the Eddie inch and you decide to do the one that no-one likes right was be racist right. That's a one thing no one likes. I didn't tell her phobia racism. There's to be the cannot do online and pets pets be derogatory towards blacks say bad about Trans Georg. Queer people get cancelled immediately. She did two of those things. Two of the free wander free. It doesn't matter it's the poisonous free do one year out own my God and his son where people angry at me. How will rudy? My life changed. That it's not gonNA change anything but it's gonNA be really satisfying. My parents live on fear for my thighs. Affair was definitely should young in it. Everything that you did is what led to your parents have fear infinite life. It's you'll fall in it. That's why respected orifice much when he went on that tired against Kobe. Just like shutting down the PPI. Dis OUGHTA. Isn't it like you said you think double down live with that? So if if he decides street Sunday was up again and he just gets punched by some dude. He's knocked out you just delivered. It is what it is. You can't come and say hey. We have to be conscious of each other. Be saved was no no wrecks about somebody you have to expect to get to get some kind of Italian and when it happens you have to go out to the game by a call. Hold my hands up is what it is you start crying and telling and giving us lectures darkness life lessons. We didn't do the thing I'm just react until you did. Great in my life want change that my parents live in fear. Cool the fear. We don't care the loss. Once we show is what for the love of God stops sharing the video of my name and picture. It's too late my dear. You do not know what it feels like. I've never been discovered is just as unfair. Imagine you're stupid. Teenagers just going along with deep teenager. Stuff and Daniel. Lug is ruined. I don't know about you but when I was a teenager. I don't think I ever will be in play game where we start doing the N. word in unison. It's making the jokes. I don't know I didn't have that kind of growing. Don't have that kind of humor. Growing up Maybe it's just me. It says get ruined forever. People not caring. What senior hall. Why would you see how we don't know you like who you talking about what? You're likely like we're really like okay under the only defining you stupid video. Please stop sharing. The video is to lay. And I'm assuming I assume for the most part she's probably offense all right. The safety confined off on the score. Free too high split free man on this deal has gone. I'm assuming is GonNa she shied on shutdown up okay. Everybody's been them purrs. I'm sorry to any blacks that I go off and learn from a mistake ended plexus super bizarre story the same. I wish we she now was it. How is this anywhere k? Just someone told her to go and die okay fair enough but hey what can you do? She's done it she done for. She learned the lesson. I think. And Bloody Element is that gave me some loss. Good or betty loves that this move on but up up the LAS dos documentary. Ooh that was a good one. I'm sure some of you very start watching it. But it is really cool. Documentary available now on Netflix. Could lost dance follows the last season that Michael Jordan played for the Chicago for the last season was it. The last season for Jackson was there either way it was this season that they wanted to complete the triple free six. Nba Champion runner. And I'm it from the point of view. I'm not a big NBA Fan Just see the clips here and around forty by the rules ship. I assume it was. The documentary. Filmed an run-up today trying to complete six championships in a row during modules heyday. Now commit for coming if coming into as as a non Mba fan but also knowing that the power of Mike Jordan and what he meant to that organization the one thing I kind of stuck out to me was you know. Of course you know. He's greatness. I think that's something that you'd have to kind of you know. There's no way you can watch that and know be reminded of just how good this guy was from the way people talk about him to the way he's carries himself to just the way he plays. Rafic. That's the one thing you know is about the it'd be even if you're not interested in the actual sport or in the in the field of creativity are if somebody's playing the cello or do ballet ordering a play on On the big screen. Even if you're not a fan of those mediums right you can read. You can when somebody who's good at something that they're doing and whenever really bad owner just exceptional and just you know otherworldly. You can see even if you're not fan. I'm sure I remember doing this. I remember that happening to me when I was a building. I used to coach kids in my preschool and stuff and you start to know history. I remember were younger. We'd be a call. How can we didn't trials of big teams and then you hear manager sale? We can sport talent from likelihood years of four operas. No no way man number. I was sick sick now sick now but when you start coaching younger kids but she kids under five years old you start to realize note you know why they can tell because you can spot. A kid does six years old right. Couldn't wait controls. The ball the way he That this balance. He has on it to a runs his choice of pauses way. He hits the boy instinctively. Something's just teach just kind of go to give talent. Oh God given Kind of a orientation towards that certain thing and you have all you don't have it so you can definitely see that when you watch this last documentary on Netflix. You can definitely see even if fan of Cambodia. You can just see how good the guys competitiveness up against and especially your kind of casual fan of the NBA. I am. We'd only just like you know whatever's on you might watch it. You can definitely notice the people he played in this era. You can see them next to each other and you can see how easily or how ordinary he's making them look and then you realize how good they are and you're like are now. I get it. It's messy right. It's all good him. Skipping Parssinen some lowly team sorts of egos are coming to the burn about come to new camping skipping boss players. You don't really have any context then when Baselga and play a team that you often seen play Wiki we smash your league two pieces right. Measure of uniformity LIPOIC beater but different center five zero and suddenly see messy. Do the same thing. He does assess Vigo to live to political pacer. Okay court now I get why he so body regarded. And that's what happens. If that's how much of a you know. The mini is in that regard. You see how much of a winning mentality and that kind of competitive spirit is just. It's just everything when it comes to true champions and I think the good thing I liked about it was that you know Jordan. Of course. When he was a pump he was. It was away from social. Media was away from your smartphone so they will have room as you did his stories about him being of a Dick or for the most part. We only have to concentrate on. The Safi didn't call. You didn't have to really care about his extra marital life that stuff. He did outside of it he's friends. He's connections mango trouble. If he didn't read the city care because there wasn't enough context. There wasn't enough juice in that story. Where the press can we get? Information from League is Shit. Maybe does gossip sites one as big as they were nowadays whereas I'll say gossip has a prima bigger than maybe does cause magazines from back in the day right. They just you know people love to go on and just even get because they're now that landed in blood you know before gossip site will just be straight rumors and now as I am. Second News press release. They'll send out showroom and they also talk about what they might have heard on the scene so those things happen so I think because he was able to concentrate on basketball and we ought to concentrate on the stuff that he did on the core and you were able just to deliver especially the mentality had main stage of that clip of him play against the Boston. Celtics like fucking jail. They still lost but he he puts up like four nine in sixty two points or some Shane following game elect God Almighty Mandak. I was good. It was just the aggression of varieties player. Just absolutely freakish to watch. I like the section. That focused on skyping curfews. Somebody say they didn't get the praise he deserved desecrating basketball which is similar to what we say nine football maybe because the prices in transfers of just gone sky with seeing a lot of pressure pundits near Ucla of foot rectors essentially building out the team or the squad would have particular Gore image in mind and in fitting the manager to that particular playwright. Before would just be like again manager in charge. You keep them a blank cheque book. They sign one and if that doesn't work he has someone else in. Dade this rinse repeat but it ends up happening you end up in the squad like unites a few seasons back way. Descend up with various players from different regimes. Who PLAY DIFFERENT WAY? Who Different social skill set? Different attribute doesn't necessarily work by. If you're able to have this continued plan with the without the people at the top without maybe dimension. A coach helps a basketball. Does that quite well? They'll draft in a really big player. Someone retaliates only material and kind of put the pieces around that player to make sure they get the best of him and is the best for the team. And I think that's what he's The guy that Jerry Krause who kind of comes out of it looking at convenient to be on this. But he didn't really walnut regard. You is able to kind of recognize that they have this special one once in a lifetime. Talent in Jordan and in just fit the pieces of paper and we'll go love Undeserved hate because it was injured. I guess for most of the time but he also was. I think Jordan Davis is right. He's one of his best ever You need that balance the team. So that was really cool Of course Jerry. Krause Fan just goes to show that you know sometimes pencil pushes and gatekeepers. I usually the worst people on. They really by think. Povey part of the reason why he suffered a lot of negative attitudes towards finished even one show where they're coming to pick championship medals and share their rings and everyone gets caught out by the announcement and one's named gets caught up before the players from booze and as soon as Jackson's name. Everyone cheers is so that must have really got the fatty number. He knows that without him. I think vigilant came before. He's teed studies rain but he basically plucked projects now obscurity got the pieces in around Jordan in the second season or the property and after that to kind of make sure they will championship team so he has every right to feel as if like he's integral part though when is Asian but he tried to you know he was so maybe obsessive his ego so willing or surveys or get credit that he forgot that you know especially sportsmanlike. People naturally have a bevere hesitant to give any kind of organizational person in the present head of any kind of praise anyway really in it because they don't have the best reputation so when you try and go to war we wanted to you know once it lifetime talented say it just doesn't make any sense in it. I think he should have conceded defeat even if he wasn't defeated so early on just to get more of it. I don stand the idea of like telling Phil Jackson all no matter if eighty two games a row you're GONNA get sacked. That is insane but it's the same with four point but they do all the time. It's just such a weird thing lake and especially because your banking riot because as good if you do and then suddenly is still goes right and you suddenly somehow able to plug another Jordan out from the woodworks. Another team to go on never precedent round with another championship. Seven Fred. That's when it works. But that is the probability that working is not high so he was banking and look for that to happen in. The course it didn't happen in the end of the day. And then you know he passes away and everyone still faces village right so he didn't necessarily get the praise he deserved in that regard. But you know what can you do And then again I just think is to see how highly he was spoken about. Jordan is from his peers and people that played with him. I think the level of respect they they were giving him these flowers and telling us of award laughing. One person described him as a good. You know to happen to be paying basketball right. He wasn't human laughing that really puts into context. Religion astound wire of older folk. Who around when who to see Jordan play live wherever is in person on TV and also got to see Lebron life. don't necessarily entertain yoga moments of those guys being the Brumby. Better Asia's not an compensation I think everyone's willing to say runs bed dude human rights especially on the outside from what we know could. I'm sure I'm not sure about being a better human. When you're just showing us what you want to show us and stuff you know you never know. Moyes of thinking. That people are a lot more dangerous than they. Often people are being more than they wanted to be known. They can get away more evil newest stuff. They would do it so the fact that abroad screens the whistle doesn't really say much is probably cheering. We'll probably get more of you. Probably get more accurate representation of his character based on what the whole China stuff than you would do. And how he treats his kids. A needle took a chooses of Barbara godless overseas. Of course a better human being quiet than Jordan. A finger we can definitely agree on You'd be hard pressed to find anyone especially somebody not knicks fan or somebody who team that got demolished patrol anytime. They played you hard to find anyone. That's going to really say Lebron's better and I think that is testament to just how good level this guy is playing the sport and again it just even industry or in the con- hope inspire you to see this level of greatness to see how far he was able to take things just inspiring to seaman. And I like how to drop into time per week on so net flicks. I didn't know it was gonna be a Netflix stuff was going to be the con- scrounge around on. Espn to find all a torrent bias available now napping so watch I check and even if you're not a fan of basketball. I think these documentaries pressures they do the states on basketball and American football ever really good way of kind of narrative of storytelling. That even after my mom would really like to watch it like I mean they have a good way of doing some deductions for. Paul are very much geared at the personnel sits in for loops but these communities are they appeal to anybody could stumble upon which is what she ended. So good life lessons to learn for me The stuff about the the the cocaine cowboys wherever they will the cruise they had. How known for good again on the in getting drunk shit. I'm not surprised if we were going to real more down the line on the Shabbat I by the idea of Jordan being twenty to ruin seeing people also matters of an insurmountable back into his room and go at night so for me by also could be true. That could be a good origin story. That could be a adaptation of who uses the human. He was willing to sacrifice the early part career. Because also because now of course if you watch the TV you actually watch it as him sitting down talking to the camera and he's got a toll Toll Plaza fucking on these pictures. Right he's got tore tore gloss over differences when a data series bag Lonzo. Whiskey is full his dark this holiday mixture and now he's got the God took it very very freely so we have the data show to as a good a good mood. I regard to game to open up a bit but is quite coatings able to sacrifice the early part of his career. Especially when you're young to be Grazyna world so that he can enjoy the fruits of nature on. He doesn't look the best now though he released his eyes wide. They'll yellow and Shit. He's a he's a bigger older dude now right now. The people that high that kind of physicality the way he was pushing it to to limit is to take its toll on your body but I just I duNNo Majesty. Something admirable about sacrificing devices that exists for young athletes in early career. So that you could become you know the best Arab was and now have many as on people are still talking about you so it's GonNa in terms nor was willing to accept that Jay was even close to anywhere near you is a really cool thing to see and I think for again any sport or any kind of field you're in Hobart Malva and hope that you can replicate in any kind of musical whether you can I think and also the cut the really cool but is he wasn't necessarily regarded as somebody that was highly so often in college so I didn't know who he was a second know whether these kind of a God given talents from when he was young he wasn't here to work hard at being a he was your son for the kind of Trained HIMSELF TO BE. He Kinda willed into existence. Posters came out of women. He was shooting freeze He wasn't an around that he of course policies game that will stella he wasn't Jordan Alina now when he was included so wasn't to see so practice makes perfect of course but every. Check it out if you haven't seen it. Lost Dances and available now on net flicks okay next whilst we have he Unfortunately we have another Festival has been cancelled discord. The whole the whole was it. The whole United Queer One's even get actual article from resin adviser. But this look at. She put her statement and deliberation statement from Pope of them up. Yeah we had a lot of casualties of this panel. Making a lot of people have a finally commented. A realization allowed stuff that they would happen in between time not to give it back to normal. Is it going to happen and how much she most of Asia's Youtube homegoing costs and again like I said previously beginning of the show. There's no guarantee you don't come to anyway. So as risk involved these for these kinds of events delays wanted to kind of bite. The bullet is this festival code. Whole Unite Quickest vote which was in Germany. Kind of really cool saying I remember. Seeing the pictures around is somewhere in the countryside in Germany. It's amazing platform. That comes out. That people have dance on honorable. Zina's pictures around. So that's pretty cool said news regardless this statement from this is news. Maria actually is as Germany's whole unite. Of what has been counseled in two thousand twenty? A statement today is is need. One hundred thousand years wanted to keep the festival live and also can ticket bicycles at the ticket. They'll saloon she across the company on Friday and were Live this is actual profile. Say could see what they said. But it's really sad man. I think to begin with anyway. Let me just put hoping upon the effect and get it on the screen takeout so this is the actual thing itself as a follow in to that can get us. The furred wanted I I. Yeah I saw the whole community is heavy heart that we announce this year's edition of Hall Festival is cancelled. We hoping that the concentration would improve the recent news coming from Whatever places where Ferre policy's located restricts gatherings of over one thousand people until the end of August again Muslims? Just logistics knit. There's there's the dates. Obviously you want to put your finger on because you'll take a bunch of the results of the logistics of postponed because then postponing the setting up of it which is then going to still be over in the winter being counseling newest maybe they could potentially put the event on September but he didn't have still have to set up before then giving signed off. It's just a whole horror show which done this. Mvp shout to them for trying With trump wants to be of extension and strict social mission as this Germany. To right is what makes me think that the people that are wishing for Keno. Combo happens living in Google. Land by continuous is is one of the hottest provider. Saw the Boeing Sept- at this support steps being taken look into to flatten the Kobe. Nineteen curve because I wanted to date surface of what twenty one by still too early to know if we'll be able to organize Dan and what might look like. That's what I'm saying so again. All these things being postponed to the New Year is a little bit presumptuous but I think the stuff like Johnson has hub because I think my personal physical by snow from the spring of next year I mean buying a fabric suffer. It would be cool so dow be fine but postponing trailing now of course must have is for library reasons. They don't WanNa get you know sued by their showroom by the festival by the insurer This program you know clauses contracts and she'd have to kind of make sure they cover themselves with but I think if you're if you festival you're looking forward to engine New Year I would say you have to kind of Oscars of a question about supporting the festival itself and maybe not refunding. If you WANNA make sure their life one thing and you also have to come to accept the fact that it probably might not happen regardless of the New Year is just one of those things and it continues here A CD noise next one number. Two enjoys was. Oh No no. No one to decision comes step steep cost to us as festival. We've carried a major desk for our initial developing years. None of none of the previous editions have broken. Even which is really sad and really heartbreaking to see. That's bit conversation branded right. Like I get doing the love and if you see let me get the movie up here because I think of the movie was fucking gorgeous. See if I can find it really really cool Whole Hoffa Levy. They go from one thousand nine hundred and this really fucking cool. Plato Bev. If you're not to see but I play the screen. Hoops beginning turns out there quits. Evasions people dressed up. Amazing grace factor through this tried. That's the that's the image. Remember seeing people yourself on this little floating loafing that goes out to the water but imagine putting on this record into this left just so you could put it on for the sake of. That's that's what I mean about the beauty of the music industry or the community or the general putting on events I had history. I've safe-space with people who identify square ruin the whole scene to seven on just so they can have on not not make any money at all and the loss additions. Notice it quite creative statement right. They haven't broken even on any of the events not one not two. None of them were broken even making my loss. Just put them on this fucking insane. I've called a man like all the same and it's just again it from just at selfish point of view if I'm a fan of music festival I'm fed up because finesse finesse que- core by this little stuff. If you say non smoking area you know complaining about the Landscape Club scene. You should do something. Right Follow Marc Andreessen advice and build something as often. Don't criticize what do they do it? But there's a a real big. There's a big gap between that and also just for the sake of it. Just just do it for you have something there. Something exists that you know fills out void that you need in Sandy Nicole Verse Fan Festival. This should be making some nights. I think my point in this as as as Saturday's that needs to be a commission had with some organism propose about especially maybe some fat and maybe fans Tom People buy tickets ticket holders desert concession around like how you how you support people that actually are trying to make some positive change in seen trying to criticize basis. What you know. Are they grants available things? Because there's no way this event should be happening from the love. Someone's heart from their own pocket. I lost every year. They once one gets pulled off completely ruined brand. That should be on it. We should be able to pull. These people are doing these things because you know this is imagine. This is your first experience of a safe. Space flew in from another country. Now you're hearing this news. Right how close to your heart is festival. What how much does it mean to you right? Now it's going away because you know the scene isn't his people are more willing to go to these big ticket events he's crappy house events. You Know Uh sponsored by you know squatty corporate character than support people actually do. Things are ground level but he continues. Lack of financial reserves made the concentration impossible for us to face our which is really bad coffee with really realize now that this era especially at myself anyway I realize how important catches cash is king having their ability to dip into some kind of savings or some little bit mighty saved over is really helpful in situation where he don't know we can have come from so clubs and festivals especially have their beneath have reoccurring amount of ticket sales depending on. What's these nerve has to be? Some kind of this is why most places should be adopting a residence. Only you shouldn't be flying in fucking you know hun overcrowded Ricardo Villalobos play. You're stupid wine bar in brick lane. You don't need that right. It needs to local community. Come out fill up and give give give up tree to somebody coming up to do to see you grow any bill together as put suspending by John Carter. He's going to need to come back again the next week. Payne never do this so desperate concession with clubs and these events like hey give the time in this base of people that are local so that you can reduce your over fees. 'cause that's people coming up. They don't WanNa they don't they? Don't CARE ABOUT MAKING TEN GRAND. Cherokee can the beginning. This won't be able to play for a receptive audience so you get a chance to kind of cover. None have a horror people playing for way less than paying two or three people that needs to happen going forward and then you can save you. Money Point enters. That needs to happen too. Because again you lassen laws are going to spring up. Who's GONNA come into power and have different points of view view culture differently? You have to conditions in mind. This is again pulled out this piece of products with no corporate backing which is really commendable or major sponsorship support. Which again I think is commendable. But they could be some new way again. You don't use guests. Schifrin brands and companies actually are aligned with your value. That could be good as what's helped her knee because wrong. You're taking money from corporations and feeding it back into what you do. I think it's wrong. We completely set out right and you have cocoa of the building and has nothing to do with the Kotey represented would be against making some money Jerry and also making sure that it's tough sufficient least Eric because then if you're self sufficient and good this position you can in rely on the community coming together to finance an excellent very cool. They twentieth support we funded by ticket sales. Everything that whole is is Franks to you and he continued here hoping this away. They also refund machines really difficult. Nowadays people are just is warfare money by says even with our hostesses event. We have already in co-production caused copy recover. Gozo wants to pay our team of members and local incubators who have what hardware year preparation for the festival. Who have lost all worked for in the into a into indetermined. Indeterminate period of time does not cover up and doing some help from the government has been very limited closely insignificant. Considering our particular situation realism landscape is currently flooded with many please for funding the holidays we need to raise one hundred thousands of keep the home life. We need your help so again. If you've got anything from them. Deputy Supporters Skies This. Friday April fourteenth sent out an email to everyone dies already. Purchase tickets concentated refund.

It is said in Mexican folklore that the hummingbird a gorgeous symbol of positive energy strength and courage is also said that the if the hummingbird flies your way you can trust that something extraordinary ordinary will happen our guest today. Don Ferguson. Had something extraordinary happened today. Happened when he created teak Tequila along with his wife and I think they ANA who's not with us today. We wanted to say hello. Oh to her. This new Michigan Company is taking spirits over by spy the spice storm. It began as a casual cow conversation and ended up turning an idea into the smoothest Blanco Tequila on the planet. They've also created the world's only coconut lime Blanco Tequila tickets now and over. Two hundred and seventy five five Michigan stores and they're planning on expanding nationally every aspect of the development of this. Teak Tequila is intentional. It represents answer core values of the finest elements from the Hummingbird logo to which a staff and they're saying and they're stamped Mont signature mantra which is create creator legacy. And that's on the back of every bottle. Please help us welcomed on Ferguson. As he shares how to change your mind change your world and create your legacy whooping. ooh That was. That was one of the best opening the other thing. Is You read part of the hummingbird story arena and a little fact behind that You can you can view the whole story on TC SPIRITS DOT COM website. But I wrote it. Oh so this is. Yeah Yeah I wrote it I try to fancy myself as somewhat of a writer not really but I try and Yeah I wrote it you know I. I wanted it to capture the essence of what we're trying to do and then draw it back in to explain the significance of the humming bird logo and The hummingbirds just always resonated with me You know who they appoint Flying by your head. I've actually had. It happened several several times. Now in my life wow I was up north and Charlevoix and I heard like a loud buzzing. This was years ago and I looked up and there was a humming humming birds. You staring at me. Yeah your spirit and So you know years later Multan decades later really in creating this Tequila Company. It was. What do we want as a logo because you always wanNA have something powerful something striking and so when you looked at other Tequila brands? You know. They're all sugar. Sugar skulls something. They're all pretty similar and with that it was okay so we have a third partner as well micro. Walt is our third partner He's a little bit more silent. I lint on the business side which y'all need yes I say you need. You can't wear every hat So you know. I didn't know if he'd go for it but he did. He loved it and So when TC Keila took eleven months to come to market and we just happened to have a trip plan to Mexico my wife and I we went to Mexico. Pick up the bottles the day before and we're all excited. Wow this is this is real now but shit. We don't know what we're doing We're going advocation. Figure it out so we went to dinner and up above us. There were two birds flying around. Take a along with really two of them in Mexico and I said this is a sign. Yeah and so fast forward you know with business so you know with being an entrepreneur all of that you go through a lot of ups and downs. A lot of stresses anxieties and I was kind of feeling it. I think maybe in around May and you know I asked the universe. Show me a sign this where I'm supposed to be and the next day when I got up I looked out my back window. I was about five minutes. I haven't slept in three days so I thought I was delusional. There was a hummingbird outside of my window. Wow I'd never saw one in my backyard. I have a feeders and and all this stuff like I'm trying to bring him to. Yes but I never saw one into last for sign and ever since that day it was every week I saw hummingbird in my backyard. So wow that's that's the goosebumps chills. Ask story that we had one recently. Well they migrate for the winner. So so the the latest that I saw one was early September And that was the last time and then they typically go to South America or Mexico so there little wings that flap in infiniti design the only bird that does that. So that's why they're unique to they flew all you know he's there somewhere somewhere but their territorial. Oh that means I'm more than likely yes. See going to see it and it was a female on because it was like gray. Your Salad Brown color in the males are typically bright color because they want to show off and they're inconstant motion constantly correct. Yeah they're never stopping so I it so you're much like a hummingbird absolutely quickly. Company has congratulated. I mean that's it's huge when we were reading it it was like wait a minute. That's just right. Launched really eleven months ago years. Whatever I mean in already two hundred seventy five stores well so we we need to make a correction? Okay Oh so I have some good news. We're closer to three hundred and fifty good news is always again all these locations. You know it's being on TV. Doing podcasts print media And and getting out there and hustling you know. I mean that that's the key thing about is. The work is not going to get done for you. You actually have to swallow your pride. Swallow your ego and like the first time I walked into a store. I didn't know what what I was doing at all. I had no clue and I walked into a store. Nips Lanny I said I I have to sell this. I have to get into stores and the gentlemen working the counter towner. He didn't want to try it but he ordered a bottle in a bottle and I walked out of there like it was my rocky moment. Big Victory Yeah. Well sure it was it. was you know I went from Corporate America Right. You know I was a divisional vice president for the largest finance one of the largest financial institutions in the nation around. That was making amazing. Six figure salary and I. There wasn't wasn't happy I was working sixteen hours a day. And you know at a drop of a hat. Hey you're moving to this division into this division. Did that for how long I was there. Eleven years I was in senior leadership. Roughly about four years on my last four years so I actually put in my two weeks. Notice the day after my eleven year anniversary. So uh-huh what what made you put in. What made you say okay? I'm done did you have this idea already. Yes okay so we had the idea. I was doing another company company at the time to call teak life he Q.. And it was a social media micro influencing platform and. I was just having fun with it reviewing liquors doing blogs facebook. All these different things and I always wanted to create a Tequila Company Yeah where's the worst teak come from teak. Is the couch conversations. Were just land back watching our favorite show diners drive INS and dives no and I said. Hey why doesn't than anybody do this for the Tequila Industry. My wife says well I don't you and I'm like Oh shit always comes from the strong woman. She he just challenge. I got something to do. You love that she said why not you know so I I it. It gets really in depth now so so we're talking about. It's not even happening. And she said what would you call it. And I'm just saying Tequila Tequila. Humility teak rolls off the tongue. It's you know you wanNA remember like say like rocky. That's absolutely so you know. I WANNA remember this memorable number. A one names aims so that was it but really it kind of came out of we wanted to do investing and my wife used to be a financial planner or financial. You know. She's a day trader so we looked at stocks bonds mutual fund but boring. It's just boring and then it becomes another job where you're managing that right so she Said Hey if you could do anything. Well it'd be onus Akilah company and I said there's no way I could do that and she said why they have that so I really wasn't bought in until it was a couple of weeks later I came home. I was feel good. Was One of those days in corporate America and She didn't look so good. She looked sad and finally Wayne. What's going on? We're getting ready to go out to eat. Life can be good. We're going to be drinking Tequila. Weekend's IT'S GONNA be great and she said well. In ninety days. The financial part of the company is moving back to New Jersey. So I won't have a job. Oh Wow and I said I said well. I'm in senior leadership so ninety days really means about thirty And that's what it was. It was about thirty and then at the same time they they were moving the yet again to another division and so there was no consistency. You know soon as you kinda get comfortable and it's okay being uncomfortable but as soon as you start to make some strides you know like yeah like a sports team you bring in a coach after year Expect right so I told her I go. I'm tired of people dictating our future if we're going to do this as an investment while you're off work let's figure out this Tequila akilah bought in. Yeah I'm just I'm open enough to give it a shot and yeah and She wasn't really oft and at that time too. We were just. He's getting married so we had talked about a whole bunch of life changing at a lot going gone so see now. I would've needed a dozen hummingbirds around Yes packing at your head breath. It was a lot going on. So she's losing her job. You know we we have a daughter So there's there's just so much going on but within two days Sushi found a distillery that we could potentially. She actually found three. Wow but the one of them was the one we we settled a work with. You know we wanted to work with them because they were fantastic. They want a lot of awards so I'm still not bought in so they send us some sample bottles. You know to try their base to Kiel us and it was a horrible night of drinking wanting difference. What it was on the job training business yes development so it was me and my wife and my business partner and he really was never into Keila? He's more of a fine scotch high end wine line type person and we're sitting around and it was. Oh Shit. These are actually pretty good. Now what am I going to do because I really was banking on. These aren't GonNa be good. Yeah so I can just back out wait so let me ask you something. So when they sent you the samples. Did you give them an idea of what you were looking for. Did you create the formula. How did that work so nothing? They were just giving us their base. Oh you go from there because what profile you want you know and and different things like that. So did you know. And you didn't come from that background. No I have no background. Except for the social media micro influencing so with that. I started to have have brand. Send me a lot of product so at one point in my personal barra head over three hundred and fifty different liquors. Wow long some of them I bought than it really started to expand band and I just started giving shit away like happy Tuesday. How do we get on that thing? We're GONNA have. We're opening so yeah so when it came down to the bases it was. This is something that I can work with. And and you're right I I don't have any experience. I'm not a distiller. I'm not a chemist. I don't have any formal training other than I know what I like and I know a lot of difference Akila's so I know what kind of profile I'm looking for. So you were at Sheila Tequila drinker. Prior Hugh yes so you kind of had a little base absolutely at that point like I. I think I was ten years in the game of really only consuming Tequila You know I would drink wine here and there and stuff like that but like I was more focused on Tequila and then with Tequila when we started researching it. You know finding out that it was low in sugar. My wife is a fourteen year. Survivor of pancreatic cancer so three times. She's beaten cancer three times. Congratulations jazz her family. She actually was fourteen years last week. Why aw we celebrate it? Looks like this and then he disappeared Copperfield. Rapper field. Medicinal so many good things coming out this life journey and stuff so you know yeah I just I just knew what I was looking for and then on top of it. This is one of the only spirits that she can really consume on a regular basis. That doing more more research. We found that Tequila. The sales in the last ten years of soared seven hundred percent. Wow Fastest growing market fastest growing spirits sector. And that's why a lot of people are jumping on the bandwagon. But with that it was I gotta do something different. Because if you do something that everybody else is doing your hustling on a crowded right. So it's like you know Even in the music industry. It's like if you have the same sort of music right. How are you going to get noticed right? And that's Kinda how so. My background was in music. I used to back in the early two thousands I co owned independent record label here and with them an MD was called reality media. It was real entertainment before for We we had so I was in the studio a lot with proof. Five Ella. I've been a video shoot with Eminem so studio Joe See kid rock we now so it was like that. I look at everything now as the music industry. That's just kind of how the business plays out is. Is Your Hustle and a tape you're hustling trying to sell your CD. You have to build the brand before you get the record deal. Absolute like brand before you get shelf shelfspace absolutely so all of that was going into how my going to make this different. And you know the label the story the bottle itself you know we. We talked to roughly fifty bartenders. And this is actually one of the only bottles in the world that that is rounded the top square at the bottom of this particular mold really this particular mold right here is one of only I think maybe two in the world now there's very very similar bottles but of this dimension this is really one of the only ones and what's great about it is it's easy to hold. You can hold it from the neck. You can hold it from the stem. It's it's it's square so it sits really flat. It takes up a very little shelf space in store on. So there's this a lot of great things to at the label is striking is very beautiful. That up label meaning. I love the summit listening and I love the hummingbird very different colors vary. Here's what I know about a little bit about labels the label you often see label and you think Oh my God. That's a beautiful label amazing label and if the label is so detailed like Rockies Cup contents aren't always good you're clean label to and a lot of so a simple clear label you this if this were Weinstein cleanly no this is not cleanly so if we had this wine label beautiful people by the label. They judge the book by Oh but the content and the wind is is not is not not good so you see something simple and clean and it should if you know the the marketing that it typically means the content is going to be quite spectacular. Well I I WANNA I wanNA. He went into the store. You took a couple in. The guy didn't really took so. Did he call you back. Did you go go back in. How did you? I've never I haven't gone back to the store. I don't think they've re ordered I went to another store right after that and the same thing happened. One in one now was. Is it cold calling do you or do you just walked in you just walk. Yeah I I gotTa Lot smarter since then and and learn to call ahead so that you're wasting gas so right now everything's a cost. Write a business on your own dime. You're driving around. You're wasting gas discouraged like from the one store to the next store just in that little amount of time there have been many points and I think for any business owner you have levels of you know ups and downs. You have discouraging times times times where you're anxious and there was one day that I had planned to go out and I can't. I think it was on the east side and I went to five stores and got turned. Turn down all five stores and I mean I was discouraged. Yeah very discouraged and on my way home you know my brain is always thinking being so you know I thought wait a minute. There's at one store It's Roy aloke and I turned around and I went to that store. He bought four cases. Oh Wow so you need to go to the sixth store ban so that's always been my mindset. Is One more one more time along with cocktail right. The cactus no no every last year. My mantra was comfortable being uncomfortable comfortable. So that's I would sign my name. I would put that on there and I wasn't doing it for anybody else other than for myself because if I put it out there than a head to try tried to live by it and so this year it was try one more time right now but it's true and and so you know we we've had some success to where now i. I have a part time salesperson staff and you know I've had to teach her is well in the these lessons that I've learned is she went and through discouraging time and Ashley I was conducting some business right before I came in here. And she she'd text you. I just sold four case and I'm Lacey. Yeah so you gotTa keep pushing and it. You're always going to get a Lotta knows I mean that's just the nature of society you know that's just how it is like people always want to say no. It's it's a default almost and then soon as you start to hear a yes or you say yes. Life opens up it. It really changes. Yeah but we're so compartmentalize right to say no most of the time and I don't understand so if I went back into corporate America I I don't know how I'd function because I understand true business now I look at it as okay. Let me not say no. But how can I adjust it. Tomake it a yes. Because he's not a great idea you know maybe spending a million dollars to sponsor the Detroit Pistons Right Right. That's not a great idea right now right what can we do. That can incorporate the brands. You know how can we and so. It's not a bad idea it will. It just needs to be worked eliminate a work around a little long. Did it take after you guys decided to go ahead and move forward to come up with like what did you who'd you put together like a vision board of what it should look like What the label was going to be the story behind how the Hummingbird was look on? How how long did that take? What was the process so my personality is very aggressive on you? Know I'm a push push push and I was still working at the time so I was still working about fourteen thirteen hours a day. Your drive time So you know it was me and my business partner A Mike and wifey was putting together all the behind the scenes stuff you know the logistics the operational side so the bottle he kind of took the label. I said this is kind of what I want. And we ran with An I love working with entrepreneurs. I love supporting their businesses especially as an early stardom and a- and So we got with somebody and said this is our vision but can you do and You know so tone about the Hummingbird we told him you know what we wanted and she actually came up with the the label design along with my business partner so when I first saw it it took. It took Oakland roughly about a month. I took roughly about a month to come up with this design Just because we push push hard not long doc no not at all. Yeah it is I mean you know it only took us eleven monster come to market so from yes. We're doing this to eleven months later. We're on the couch quickly. I really did and we had we had some pitfalls you know so the government changed you know also the the president and a lot of tariffs came down with Mexico So that actually puts behind. If everything had worked out I we. We would've been on the shelves and nine months. That's fast yeah. I know some Tequila brands. Because I've done the the influencing this one gentleman it took him six years to get us out. Wow we did it small batch. It wasn't like we ordered thousands upon thousands of cases. We wanted to prove concept. I you know you wanna to see what people think about it because it is. What's in the bottle that people talk about? It's the bottle itself might get a sale but it's what's in the bottle that will you right and let's see we want to try first so we have three Russians. Yeah where should we start. I'm going to say stay with the flagship. The world's only coconut Tequila. Yes this is made with all natural flavorings from the meat of the coconut and the lime. Nothing artificial no SYRUPS. No sweeteners. Anything anything else. So it's just one hundred percent blue ever Gabbay and then we got your name all over it healthy one so mad at myself for not having so you put the lime in the coconut. I only down you put the you don't hear that down asked Jimmy Buffett's and I know it's the muppets. I would come on the muppets. We'll we'll just do some games. Sure set okay. Okay down search here we go wait. Are you supposed to act like a shot. So you know this us a premium you can see if you WANNA shoot. Nobody really good. Let's my mouth. Isn't it awesome. So the correct way to drink. Tequila is not shooting winging it really. It's really isn't but how many of us let's be honest. How many of us have gone to the bar? Haddish Shawn why they right I mean. That's that's the stereotype only under. They say it's changing how people think or People's experiences so you know I know that's how take me how good drink Tequila in college it is. It's the stereotype is that you just falls into the stereotype but a good Tequila. Like a premiums Akilah or a super premium Tequila you sip and typically what you do is to get all of it and is you take a little sip and just kind of let it rest in your palate and then you sip tip from there so let your it opens your taste. Buds up and then you can really get the flavor so a lot of the times on your second sip or third sip you you get even more so it becomes more. This is really good. Oh my God you taste the coconut coconut. It's not an artificial sweet coconut fan at all. Did you like the whole Malibu Anything Yeah No. I'm not a drinker with absolutely because some of them are so sugary so artificial. That's what it is. You're the never liked Akilah. Made with Corn Syrup Tequila so no so tequila comes from the Blue Weber Gabbay. So Tequila is actually one of the most regulated spirits in the world is Kinda Champagne. Cognac has to come from a particular region so Tequila actually has to come from police go And it his trademarked by the Mexican government. The word Tequila so there's a lot of nuances that that we didn't know that we had to go in. And you learn on the job Bob. Sometimes I didn't know that we picked the hardest spirit. But isn't it interesting the things you don't know you go in blindly. It had you everything. You probably wouldn't agree. One hundred eight hundred sometimes split. Ah Different things but we don't know what you don't know going in. You know we it was. Let's just figure it out. I'm we're smart people and and I always used to tell my friends we'd sit in the back you know and just have a bonfire before any of the start in A. I said we're way too smart and ambitious to work for somebody else. Yeah why and some fortunate because like I one of those friends. I'm the only one that has done this you know. Wow because basically we we get trapped by a job right right you start buying shit and I have to work more shit. It's really bad. I just call it the a trap while the truth is there's no job security. I don't know why there's a false security it is a very false sense. The security is the money that makes us feel good so on the weekend we become weekend warriors. We buy stuff that we don't really have an yeah. That was one of the things when I left Corporate America I purged. I went through shit that I didn't need anymore. Like why. Why do I even have this? Yeah I haven't even broke it out in fifteen years I don't need and then I just started selling stuff and You know it wasn't too. I mean it ended up supplementing a little bit of income of course but you know I mean I. I have now had a paycheck in over two years. Wow I still have a decent amount of in my bank account because I set myself up for this. Yeah and you have to plan for it. You have to understand that. There's going to be a lot of things that you can't plan for but as much as you can then like just to be prepared. Yes that we anything so. When we were doing the Tequila we found out? Wow knock on the door you we have tariffs now now that we never had before when we started this and they weren't little I mean they were in the thousands but my wife actually had a cushion so we could take care of them. Okay so she is a financial planner. She did an amazing job. Yeah Mba in business. She's bilingual so Spanish fluently. So yeah so so. This was all meant to ask you something. Because I I listened to an interview that you did and the get get up okay. Yeah which was great interview And it was a two hour interview and I was only going to listen to like twenty minutes because I already did enough research. Research site the angle. I listened to the whole lower because so good you it. It was just such A. You had such a wealth of knowledge but one of the things that you talked talked about was The universe all we sent sends a signs of some. You talked about You know it's normal to have obstacles when you're enterpreneur. You'RE GONNA have have setbacks. That's normal but one of the things that you know. I find that so many of us struggle with is when you do get to the crossroads and you you do have the obstacle next to Co.. How do you know that that isn't the sign from the universe that you should pivot in? Try something different. So I trust my instinct a lot more Specifically gleaned from that time seeing the humming bird when I asked for a sign that was saying that the universe is going to take over and it put me at ease so so we we still have a ton of obstacles but the way that I look at them now is quite differently and the richest people and I don't do this for money money. I do this because I want to create a legacy. I want something that I can be proud of that. I do forever so when I look at these obstacles. Now it's like the richest people in the world. The most successful are typically problem solvers. So they solve a problem like a laptop Aboul right. You know a fortune cookie. I guess was is a problem. We need a fortune cookie. So that's the way that I look at. It is if it's not meant to be I can't problem solve. I cannot solve solve this problem and now the way that we look at it is we can always solve a problem. There's always a way to actually I. If there's something an obstacle Michael How do I get over it if I figure out. I just can't get over it then it's time to give up and so I haven't yet found that way not to get oversight. We're we're happy that you. What is the problem? That teak is gonNA solve so I think the biggest problem. We're we're going to solve as a company is the perception of Tequila. Land that you know it's very drink you know you're gonNA change the mind. Hey it's just something that you know we've been on TV a couple of times and we've talked about it is it's a healthier spiritus gluten free. It's Kito friendly low when sugar low in carbs you know what a friend of mine show Brian. If he's listening was over the other day and I was telling them you were going to be on the show and what what this was about found. He said that Tequila is the only alcohol alcoholic. Drink that is a non depressant correct. It's an opera. So that's why lights viewed as a party drug You know but it's it is it's it's an upper it's kito friendly so now l.. So the thing about that is it is. It's an upper i. It brings you into a better mood and so I think that's where the stereotype kinda comes in that people feel good. They're out on the dance. Dancefloor you don't feel all the aches and pains you know you're just drinking and drinking and drinking but the next day because you overindulged you get sick back and people typically blame onto Keila. But I've gotten sick off a wine I've got the other thing about. It is mixing so if oh yeah you know. Let's say you have three Shitty Margaritas. And then you have a shot at Tequila and the next day. You're like Oh Tequila. Well No. It's because you have a lot of sugar. Your body will not processed sugar. It'll make you sluggish and stuff. So it's a probiotic it's a prebiotics. It helps with digestion. Like there's so many different things from a plane right just a little Tequila. It's the holiday season and so let's talk about from your website. The PUMPKIN Spice Guy So the Pumpkins so I like this. The other thing too is I like really challenging being. Let's do something different and so sitting at home it was. It was actually strategic so it does a lot of these things that we do their strategic marketing in so pumpkin spice Margarita pumpkins Halloween no-brainer. Right but also Thanksgiving so I have the recipe here. That's really you. Can I read it all right here. We go so. What are you pouring? I tell us before I start reading the switch to Keeler we now. We're going to try a little bit of what we've been told the smoothest Blanco Tequila that anybody has tried. And I've gotten this a lot but I'd like your opinion all right so the Pumpkin. I'm can spice. Margarita starts with your response Tequila represent. Oh thank you don't speak Spanish. Just say real quick Merck from local screams just just said I'm going to start drinking warriors liqueur. ooh fresh lime juice a simple Syrup Pumpkin puree. Oh Wow pumpkin spice yes and then you rim the Margarita glass with cinnamon. Sugar shake it all together. Strain it over ice and I know you can finding on the on the website yes which is TC spirits dot com correct. We have a lot of others very simple recipes because purple shooter. The purple shooter is really good. And here's the thing with that. Is We actually do a lot of things with this an a Detroit company called salt flow and they make Artesian flavored favored sea salt. Oh Mom and their British. So they're doing some incredible things. I won't give it away but we're doing something on TV with them very but the purple shooter because it's sweet and then you do a salty ram we did have I think it was a blueberry or a dragon fruit flavored cease. It was amazing. No good salty. Coconut Lime. Yeah so good. That sounds good. Lot of good ones. They're just easy to make it home. Because I'm not a mixologist allergists. I'm an intoxicated. toxicologist Mary Mary for your Catholic population. Very funny he does. He have anything for Baptists Pineapple Margarita. I wanted to ask the question question because you know shark tank is so popular. There's a shark one hold on. I saw that shirt great lake chartres. I may have studied study base. You have you. Are you looking at doing this going on there. So have you had any. I'm a big fan of the show. I really am I. I love love the show because it talks business. One of the things about it is they want to take way too much and so so I literally get this all the time and there's one time I think I broke it down you know. I don't want somebody to take a lot of the house that I built right because I feel organically weakened so we actually are bringing on some investors right now. Okay so we we have opened that like twenty five percent of our company we we opened up on the on the down low but I guess it's not on the mark the perfect number one i. I have a few more than willing show tomorrow. Might do it. So so and I'm a big fan of the profit with Marcus Marcus. I've actually reached out to him to So I would agree to do something with someone. They could take us further But there's there's got to be a give as well as a taste. Can I think I'm more inclined like the Marcus La- Mona's because he you can also get you into a lot of different markets and sectors then than we would even think but We have opened it up. We actually brought on some investors has already And we are in negotiations with a quite a few more and no. It's not the dollars the funding for the crowd. Finders were the the the initial is thousands so because looking at our valuation of what we see within the next five years especially with the Tequila market and we have the world's only coconut lime and we're about to expand to some other markets. So thank you. Yeah Yeah so there's a lot of stuff going on with our company and our growth in one year you know sitting back and thinking about it is and I really. Don't sit and think about it but you have to take moments to applaud yourself. Yes you do. Oh and I'll tell you this crazy it really really is. I mean we're going. And this is for the all all the entrepreneurs out there is. I've heard it all like he's crazy crazy from walking away from his job where he made six figures. Nobody's GONNA buy a coconut Lime Tequila Where are you making your Tequila in your bathtub Like all these different things. I've heard it all and you have to be resilient right. That's it so I've been very resilient of a great structural team. We're building the team deep. So we're working with some fantastic people. You have a good woman by yourself absolutely that that is a key a lot of people honestly I know too many. I was talking to my husband about it. I don't know too many wives that would have said to their six figure out what we what is that. Do you can do this little Tequila thing. I expect I was. I was unhappy the and you know so I'm a big fan of podcast You know Jay Shetty is is a big one breakfast club. I was watching the breakfast rex club and Dr Boyce. Watkins was on an economist and He he was talking to Charlemagne the God and This is where it really resonated is. Dr Boyce said you know when you get fed up and you're so unhappy that you can walk into your boss's office because you have that money. Yeah what is in Charlotte S it was seniors and so my wife she put together the numbers and and we figured out. I had F- you money and so so we looked at it from a from abroad angle. I still you know dove in trying to figure out. Is this what we wanted right. Can we do this and I just kept seeing more things than hearing more things than than than I really was able to take apart like a puzzle my unhappiness. Where did it come from from and so I would sit in an office? You know in the corner of the building looking out the window and I just thought the world was passing me by you. Know what what am I leaving. Where's my mark? What Am I? What impact am I giving to this world and you know it wasn't that wasn't meant to be so? The humming bird is an animal a creature. That isn't supposed to be caged ever not read about it. You don't really see hummingbirds in a cage barricades. She knows. Yeah so they in folklore. They'll die if they're caged because the life essence will will. Yeah so I felt being in an office I was literally dying slowly. And if you're not growing you are dying right so I teach my daughter that with a tree. If the tree stops growing what happens. Bench was dying. How's your daughter? She is eleven now. Okay so we talked to her about business because we stand the fundamentals like one of my proudest moments incident you know. I don't know if any everybody else will agree with this. But one of my proudest moments we were talking about college. She goes at eleven. I don't know if I'm going to college and I said Oh. Oh really why. Why not and she goes because I think I want to be an entrepreneur? Write Books No. I didn't do the happy. Dance the room right when when I left the father of the year and stepfather but bonus Bob I'm a bonus dead so it made me feel good because she is not falling into that trap and Rice Society that Ah you know you got a job out. Can't pay it off for in here in that Corner Office looking out the window point. Here's here's what's really crazy about it is. I don't have a college degree I went for. Maybe a half semester. Either to know exactly where you like this lawless as soon as you got you know. Ah Yeah it just wasn't for me what I WANNA do. How do you know it? Nineteen restaurants semester. I was like no I have so many any you know at one point where I was. I had eight hundred people reporting to me and the majority of them had degrees some of them had. Mba's and I'm thinking you're you're making making like forty five grand a year. I'm making this. I don't have a degree but it just proves that sometimes they'll have to write about what you learn and what you know and and you know how you present yourself right so you know for me you would never know That I don't have a degree. Right would never know that Gary v doesn't I'm looking for Richard Branson dropped out of high school. Yeah right yeah. That's a great story. Well that this is you that tells me that. Is My blonde go. So that's just the purest form it's aged it's distilled and then within two months comes out of the the the still goes right into the bottle so we have a little bit more pepper. Yep a little finish that have but this is tempered by the right now. She's not a drinker right. Yeah you really did. We got one more on. Ah I WANNA ask you about curious inception yes so yes so. What did that start? was that after you started. Yeah Doc so actually we started teak and then there was a good six months window where everything was just happening behind the scenes. So what we really wanted to do was further individuals to not be trapped by corporate so a lot of people don't know where to start right so we wanted to create a startup consulting company. Meaning I love that. This is where you begin because most of the time in the start of phase we talk ourselves out of it rang is i. Don't don't have enough money okay. Well how do we solve that problem. Going back to the problem solving is okay. I don't know how to market on social media. Well that's I teach you that. That's not the problem. I don't know how to file. LLC or an S. Corp or what's the difference. Well that's just the problem that we can solve so all of these little things they become you know sort of like a Webinar dinar. And we've had people reach out to us like how can we start. You know this is my idea but I'll also be very raw and honest with them like I. Don't I like your idea on or you know you have a good idea. But here's what's going to have to go into it you know. Are you going to Pat Pat. You know so it's like if if you're creating a product maybe the best way is to just create the product get the patent and license it out and then you can make your money off the licenses so so just trying trying to get people to think in more of a broad scope Of Business and understand what you're going to understand what to expect your the first couple months your first year. You're probably not gonNA make any money right now. But the people see these youtube stars or the Rams Star and they're like. Hey yeah that's an the nominee. I like that you're doing that because you could. Just you know quit your job and start at Your Business and said Hey I started my view. Do it yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah your help change. The world does because you know with that being said is being able to impact one person. Personally who can pay it forward. That's truly what what it's about is creating a legacy that so that's my legacy and who knows where it's GonNa go right. I don't know I have to tell you. I love the packaging and product. I love everything about it but my favorite part is the create your legacy. Because I'm thinking we go to lake book signings signings are CD released parties Grand Openings and I always like to take a bottle of wine but I think that's the perfect gift to give somebody when they're taking that leap of faith and see are absolutely now. Is You know here. Create your legacy. Absolutely I have a friend who is a realtor in when they buy a house he will give about you know so yeah the create your legacy. It was just that was very important for me to have that to get that out there to challenge people that you don't have to do whatever you're doing you do so much more and now I'm in that mindset. Why wouldn't she want one point? Did we point the back of the bottles out. Because that's where it is. Yes so point that out now. Has the story of the Hummingbird. Yeah Yep it has a partial title a part of the story of the humming bird and the other thing about is like. I don't know if that one no so on this one. We changed distributors. Because we're very proud the being michigan-based One of very few but now are importer if you look at this one imported by TC. Spirits can't Michigan. Oh we're our own importer now. Wow so you know that way we never have to change anything You know per bottle so I it's always there and one of the other long-term goals because you always Wanna the thing long-term is bringing other spirits from other countries here to America so that's something that we started to work on. There was a gen- from Switzerland that we were working on bringing on them so it kind of fizzled out because Colman's but springtime we'll start back up with that again. Okay okay fantastic really good. We'll have you back. Yeah Tasty Jim makes you sent so i. It has nothing to do with going you. They were four four. We have. Fortunately Yeah we're not fair. No time for four on we have to have you back. He said okay. You go for okay so if someone was to make a movie of your life who would you cast asked to play you the rock the rock very good choice good. The shooting is there an educator that was influential educator as far as school curriculum or just an someone monette in an educator can be school can be someone that taught you something I I would honestly say reading. Richard Branson's book Losing my virginity virginity was definitely a teaching moment because I learned what he went through. People think it's all GLITZ and glamour. Almost was bankrupt multiple times he had to sell L.. Shit off just to make his company work and his airline started because of a fluke. I love his winter flu. I would say I. I learned a lot from Richard. Branson's book okay. Okay Your Mantra is change your mind. Change your world create your legacy. So what what advice would you give to somebody who wants to start that process. Be Open. you know there's going to be a lot of people that right off the bat you're going to be discouraged. Yeah so because people people don't believe in their own dreams. So how are they going to believe in yours right right and so keep it close to you. Don't tell everybody that was going out. That is that something that you don't share with people So so at first. I'm very open now. I'm I'm extremely open you. You asked me a question. You're going to get an answer. Might might like it. You might not like the answer but I'm completely transparent But at the beginning I think you know had I not told everybody because when we didn't come out with Tequila right away it was all he's on some bullshit. It's it's not happening but then when it came out like we sold doubt in our first store in hours people were like. Oh Wow he really did it. Best friends it was a busy busy day that then it just kind of went from there but you know keep keep it close because there's GonNa be a lot of people that that are very negative and they can talk you out of your dream. They came right and it happens. All you need some selective hearing. Okay would you rather have one dream come true or give that chance to your significant other a significant other. Yeah already knew is that actually gave me chills because visit you know she. She made my dream come true so now everything I do is for her to be able to live the life that she deserves. So that's All right rocky that cookies lane fortune cookies and this is how we make our business probably better the most yet I ask so we toss cookies.

S2 E8: Grab 'em by the Midterms

"Helu electorate listeners this genteel Skinner. I wanted to try something different for once in this episode. I wanted to take a moment to celebrate our midterm victories. So I'm doing my first solo episode. It's just me, but not to worry have plenty of guests interviews in the queue with some amazing women. And that will of course remain. My core. Focus for the electorate, and I'd love your feedback. So please visit electorate on Facebook. That's Facebook dot com slash electorate and leave a comment in the post about this episode. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy. I'm Jim Taylor Skinner. And this is the electorate and this episode grab them by the midterms. Nice. You know? I mean, a pretty good mood right about now. Not only have Democrats won the house. This is the first time in the history of congress at more than one hundred women were projected to win seats in the house your representatives. That's a big deal. Women have never held more than eighty four seats out of the four hundred and thirty five seats in the house crazy and congress has been around for over two hundred years has been two centuries. You know, so I think it's fair to call this a pink wave, you know. That's really what I want to explore in this episode. You know, who are these women what makes this freshman crop of women a four be reckon with, you know, they're different. These aren't your everyday candidates. These aren't your everyday politician. These women are fighters, and they're outraged by going to bring patch into the job from their own personal experiences. No, these women they aren't going to DC to play. I'm going to go through some of their backstories. I'm not going to go through all of the women that some of the women that you may have heard of some stories about them that you may or may not be familiar with. But I'm certain that their stories are going to inspire you like they did knee. I was in awe of some of the things that they've lived through new. They've lived incredible lives. They've taken big big risks to get here. And they represent us. They've earned their seats at the table. These women are going to DC, and I know in my heart that these women are going to life that town up like never been looking for. So let's meet a few of them, shall we? I am Rashida to leave. And I grew up in the blackest city in the country. And what teachers that told me about communities where they couldn't live about minds. They couldn't get in line in job. They couldn't get because of the color of their skin. Those are the roof those teachers, those mentors are me as a Palestinian problem curl from southwest Detroit. Where I grew up with twenty different ethnicities that is the beauty of this country. Would it can be. Did you hear the fire in her voice that was related to leave and she is heading to congress Rashida to leave is from working class immigrant family from Detroit, and that clip is actually from the she the people summit in tan Francisco that happened a couple of months ago, actually heard her speak there, and she was a powerhouse? She brought the house down. And when I heard her voice on stage. And I thought man that voice is going to be in congress. I want her fighting for me. Rashida to lead grew up in Detroit in a predominantly black community. She said that she was influenced by this experience. And that, you know, many of the black residents in her community Detroit. Do they hidden live through civil rights movement and had experienced racism, and she was influenced by that? So she really understands civil rights. She really understands what it means the fight. And she also understands what it means to be an immigrant. You know, if these intersections of personality are really going to shape the way, she sees her position in her role in congress, but one of my favorite stories about Rashida to lead was a moment in two thousand sixteen at the Detroit economic club. Trump was there giving a speech there were these women in the audience who were repeatedly shouting trying to get Trump to to speak out on his stance on sexual harassment and Rashida to leave was one of those women, you know. And of course, this is Trump. He's not going to answer that question he sought to answer with a stance is on sexual harassment. I mean, honestly, we all know his stance because you know, what? Did he say he said when you were star, you know, they just let you do it. You can do anything. You can do anything that is Trump stance on sexual harassment and sexual assault. So anyway, back to this moment, and there's a video tape of this, and I'll put a link to this videotape in the show notes. So at that moment where she does leave. She knew she was shouting. And she shouted from the audience. Have you ever read the US constitution? She called President Trump out from the audience. And then surely after that, she was dragged out of the audience by security, and this video is really incredible as security dragging her out, she still chanting and asking questions, and she's not backing down and her body language is so fiery and passionate and this video she's kind of jumping up and down. And she's making sure the questions are heard at the same time. She's being dragged up by security in she's unafraid, and she's unbothered in a later interview. Someone asked her about this moment, and you know, what she said she did to leave said I'm going to bring my Bullhorn to the floor of congress. Rashida to leave is going to congress to fight for us. There are any number of ways that this interaction might have gone. But there was only one way could have ended once a gun entered the equation. In Florida over one million people carry concealed weapons. Additionally, ten to fifteen thousand more Floridians are approved to carry guns and public every month faster than any state in the nation. Nationally, Florida has some of the loosest or medium requirements automobile glove boxes are becoming modern day gun boxes. In his glove box. Michael, Don, cut the nine millimeter semiautomatic gun along with two loaded magazines. Once he hit unloaded his gun at my son and his teenage friends immediately went back to his hotel ordered a pizza and slept. Douglas, Lucy MacBeth testifying in a twenty seventeen Senate hearing against the standard ground laws. She wanted Georgia's sixth congressional district that you may have heard of Lucy MacBeth, she was inspired to run for office after losing her son, Jordan Davis gun violence, her seventeen year old son was murdered in Florida following an argument over loud music, and every since then Lucy MacBeth has been there for the fight. You know, here's another thing that you may not know about Lucy MacBeth, she survived breast cancer twice. You know? The most heartbreaking thing about Lucy MacBeth story is that her son Jordan Davis wasn't supposed to be in Florida. He was there while MacBeth was recovering from a second belt of breast cancer. An although both Florida and Georgia have stand your ground laws. This happening in Florida is so sadly fitting given Florida's history was standard ground laws with Trayvon Martin's case, of course, there have been other high profile cases, the man. Who killed Lucy? Macbeth's son actually cited the standard ground law in his defense and Lucy MacBeth, of course, has been really outspoken about senior ground laws and gun control. Generally. I read an interview between Lucy MacBeth and Tana has he coats in the Atlantic where she said, you know, I still love mine country is the only country we have. And I still believe there are people who believe in Justice, and fairness I still believe that there are people who don't make judgments about people based on the color of their skin the thing that I think is so important about loosen bets. Win is the fact that you know, week over week were stunned at the new levels of gun violence in this country. And it's something that's plagued us loosen about campaigned against the Sandra ground laws, and she was also the national spokesperson for moms demand action for Gunson's. And in the state of Florida where her son was killed at least twenty six children and teens were killed in cases related to stand your ground laws between two thousand five hundred thousand twelve there are twenty five states that still have senior laws. Including Georgia where Lucy MacBeth is from him where she won her congressional seat in Florida. But it won't think about this timeline. It's time line leading up to loosen Macbeth's candidacy, so her son Jordan Davis was shot and killed in November of two thousand twelve sandy hook happened in December of the same year. December of two thousand twelve a day after sandy hook moms demand action for Gunson's in America was founded on December fifteenth two thousand twelve that was just one day after the sandy hook elementary school shooting. In two thousand fourteen Lucy MacBeth became the national spokesperson for mom Simeon action. And following the parkland shooting in February of this year loosened MacBeth announced her run for congress. So that timelines really inspiring. You can see how they seem to hook shooting the death of her son. And her being a spokesperson inactive is for moms to me in action all led up to this moment. There's no better person. And no better advocate to be in this fight against gun violence. So I'm really hopeful to see what Lucy MacBeth brings the congress. I really wanted to talk about gun control. Because I think that a lot of people are talking about them at term elections in the context of committees. And especially the investigative committees. Right, Maxine Waters, you know, she'll be the chair of the House Financial Services committee. And of course, that could mean that they could subpoena Trump's financial records, you know, what I'm looking forward to that just as much as the next person, you know, it's like Christmas is coming, you know, but for me, more importantly are the lives that gun violence touches, especially the lives of children and innocent people were touched by gun violence every day, you know, and I'm really looking forward to see what direction congress goes with these new members who are gun control advocates gun control, for instance, if you look at the congressional archives. You'll see that after sandy hook. There have been at least two dozen bills that have failed. But you know, what things are changing and changing fast the tuna eighteen midterm elections marked the first time that gun control advocates outspent, the NRA. This is the first time. So think about that income. In two previous you're spending. So during the twenty fourteen midterms the NRA spent twenty five million dollars to influence congressional races. And in two thousand sixteen they spent fifty five million dollars to influence the election and thirty million dollars went to Trump's election. But you know, the fact that gun control groups outspent, the NRA for this election really paid off about sixty one percent of voters participating in the midterms said that American gun laws should be stricter Democrats ousted at least fifteen House Republicans that had a ratings from the NRA and the democratic candidates that won the candidates that flipped those Republican seats. They all scored in f- rating, and they ran on that they were proud to have an f rating from the NRA, and you know, why that's so important. Our democratic candidates are going to make it so shameful to have a favorable rating from the NRA that you won't be able to win a race with anything higher than an F rating. But you know, listen, baths, just one candidate that ran on gun control. There is a record number of ads. I think there's something around one hundred. And twenty five thousand ads political ads for midterms for house seats Senate seats in gubernatorial races that made gun control central to their messaging, and at least seventeen newly elected House Democrats back stricter gun laws. And that includes Jennifer Weixin of north Virginia. Abigail spend burger of New Jersey and Elaine Lauria of Virginia. Every go spend burger is interesting. She's a former CIA operative and she was backed by the Gabby giffords organization against gun violence for her stance on tougher gun laws. She's even talked about having to carry a gun every day for her job. So she understands what it means to be responsible gun owner engine for waxen of north Virginia. As a Senator she voted for bills would establish universal background checks. Enclosed gun show, loophole and band bump stocks and Loria Virginia. She's a navy veteran. She spent twenty years in the navy. She was deployed six times. She just retired from the navy in June of twenty seventeen and she was also endorsed by Gabby giffords. So all through this. In addition to Lucy, MacBeth made gun control, a central theme of their campaigns. No, I don't want to imply that we're out of the woods here right there. Still needs to be support from the Senate where the Democrats don't have the majority. And of course, from the executive branch was proven to be pretty useless than standing up to the NRA. But the tide is turning this could be the beginning of the end of the NRA's influence over politics. And of course, the end of this deadly gun culture here in this country. Another woman who made history this year is Cherie Steve it's of Kansas. The world was first introduced to cherise David's in her powerful campaign ad. She's she's in this boxing ring rate, and she's throwing these punches at this punching bag. She's wearing a t shirt that says strong Brazilians and indigenous and I saw this. I thought you who is this person who was this woman when I know cherise David's is or she was rather an enemy fighter. She's also the first openly LGBTQ Kansan and one of the first two native American women elected to congress in. She was also raised by a single mom. Are you seeing the pattern here? These women aren't from privileged backgrounds. Earlier this year SRI David was actually arrested for protesting the capital on behalf with dreamers and on Twitter. She said of her arrest. I'm proud that. I was arrested fighting for dreamers. I'm proud of everyone who takes a stand and works to amplify their voices. Cherise David's is a fighter both literally and figuratively. And we're. Sending her to the house. Deb, Holland, of course of New Mexico who also won her congressional race is making history as one of two native American women going to the house along with Therese David's she has a strong stance on climate change. And she's driven in part by the fact that New Mexico has been plagued by severe drought. Thirteen of the twenty most water poor counties in the US Armagh, Georgie native when I think about both DEM Holland and Therese David's I'm reminded of the attempts at voter suppression in native communities during the midterms. Remember that in North Dakota. So their representation in congress matters for this really important reason for the simple fact that you know, frankly, it's been two hundred years people. Here. Congresswoman elect. My name. In congress. Women. Elected. One of these. Couplets Ilhan, Omar. Haunt Amar is one of two the first Muslim woman to be elected to the house of representatives along with for cheetah to leap. So I really want you to take a moment to absorb Ilhan Omar's backstory. Her family fled, the civil war in Somalia and at each eight. She spent the next four years in a refugee camp in Kenya. Then at age twelve in nineteen ninety-five, she moved to the US where she spoke, no English. You know, I wonder if that eight year old girl as she fled her home country a country, by the way, that's currently on the US travel ban less a wonder if she could have imagined herself making history as the first woman to her job and the US house of representatives the first Somali American legislator on one of the first Muslim women in the house of representatives. When I think about them are walking into that chamber. I'm so moved. I'm so moved and I'm proud. So this is really interesting study that was done. It showed that women in congress path on average twice as many bills as their male colleagues. Women legislators sponsor more Bill. They pass more laws also said more money to their districts and women legislators a more likely to introduce legislation that specifically benefits women and to put it bluntly. They just get stuff done. Don't put a link to the city in the show notes. You know, there's this concept called the Jill Robinson affect and it's a phrase that's based on Jackie Robinson. The first black baseball player who was one of the top talents in the game. You know, Jackie Robinson had to be better than any almost any white player in order to to overcome all the racism. So basically the Joel Robinson affect which just introduced by Sierra and Zia, she's a researcher from Stanford. The job Robinson affect explains why congresswoman outperform congressman. And her study says that if odors are biased against female candidates, only, the most talented working women will succeed in the electoral process and also women perceived that there there's going to be discrimination in the electoral process or underestimate their own qualifications for office. Relative to the men who are running then only the most qualified and politically ambitious women mullahs merges candidates. It's a really really interesting sitting in L pulled linked to it in the show notes. You know, and actually maybe I'll have Sarah on his guest to talk about it further. You know with all of that said with over one hundred women going to congress we have over one hundred reasons to really hopeful. And that's a lot of fighters. And of course, you know, I have to talk about Presley another woman who made history this year. She's the first black one the first woman of color from Massachusetts to serve in house of representatives. But you know, that wasn't her only. I she was also the first black woman elected to the Boston city council and in this past race during the midterms she unseeded her incumbent, Michael Capuano who served ten terms. Another important thing about Presley is that she's talked in the past about being a survivor of sexual assault. She was in college. And I think that's really important for the fact that one of the criticisms that we've heard about the metoo movements and from an ISM around, you know, sexual assault is that it hasn't been fully inclusive. All though, the metoo movement was initially launched by Toronto Burke, who's also black woman following that. One of the criticisms is that it has not been inclusive to the experiences of women of color. So I think that someone at Presley's level with herbs ability in her. Leadership. It's really important that she's being open about this. And I think that's really admirable. Now. I don't think that women are required to do this. Right. I think that having women where they're paying on their sleeves reshare their personal experiences so publicly it should not be a requirement. But I think that when it is done, especially by a black woman, especially by a woman of color, a woman who's election is historic. You know, I think that that's valuable beyond words, and I from one appreciate it. One of the things that I admire most about Presley is hell unapologetically progressive. She is. I mean, all the women that I've talked about our progressive. Right. But she talks about issues that I haven't heard many leaders at her level discuss. For instance, she's talked about the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana. And you know as spread across the country. She's talked about the need to make sure that minorities are included in profits from that industry. And that isn't something that I've heard often from leaders at her level. I think that because. Of her focus in because of her experiences in her infancy. I think that she's going to bring something very special to the house of representatives. When I imagine I enter Presley in her per Hades, beautiful braids in Ilhan, Omar in her job on the floor of the house in really move all of the intersecting identities that these women bring together, I find it really beautiful in moving. I'm really came forward to this new congress when I think about this beautiful coalition of women the new members the veterans in all their strengths coming together. I'm just beside myself with excitement, you know, they're going to disagree at times, you know, the views and their their styles won't, always align. And they're going to fight in different ways. Nobody think it would be really healthy for us as a party to move to a place where we're all fine with that. I mean, what else can we do, you know? But I've seen these women and I've seen what they can do. And I've seen them in action. And I know the we are in the best hands. So the point I wanted to make with this episode. It's not just about having a majority in the house. Although that's important. It's about who's in majority. The historic number of women. You know, these women have personal experience with gun violence with the pain and struggle of being a refugee, you know, they have personal ties immigration native, American Muslim black lesbian veterans. The intersection of identities of these women going to the house of representatives is so powerful. So so powerful. So here are their names Lucy MC bath Abigail span. Burger Jennifer Ston, Elaine Loria should we stay? It's where she needed to leave Alana, mar Deb Holland, and there's so many more remember those things because I have a feeling you're going to hear from them. I'm believe they're going to transform the country, by the way, if this up so feels incomplete I agree. I want do another segment on women of color, both those who've been elected and also about the electorate, you know, how women of color voted in this past election. When I think about this collection of women. I can barely contain my excitement. I'm so excited to see where we're going. Thank you so much for listening. I hope you enjoyed this episode.
