Well we got lots to get into but we always begin the episode. Every time we have a first time guest the same way and that's the essence of the show. The the question. We always ask just like every rock song has a hook. That sucks you in rock fan has a moment whether it's a band performance a song or album that hook them on rock and roll. What was it for you. Wow that's a big question The thing that hooked me on rock and roll was. I saw kiss on the midnight special on my television. When i was in the seventh grade and i it was the equivalent. I'm sure jay of our older friends. When they saw the beatles on ed sullivan that was the equivalent of that moment for me. No one's ever asked me that question to tell you the truth You know. I grew up my my folks to this day man. Both my parents love music and so it was a very musical household. The radio was always playing in. Dad would buy vinyl records of perjury artists pop artists and but yeah that was when i felt like it was something that was specifically mind. You know my parents not care for kids. They played black diamond complete with this. You know the rising drum riser in the pyro and everything manages your that. Messed me up preordained. I think it put me on the path for sure. Your kiss was an inspiration for a lot of musicians. And i think it was just the the imagery you know the the faces and the explosions and all the stuff. That kind of just pulled you in you know. The music was great too. But it just had like this power over young kids. I mean i got exposed to kiss back in like the early eighties. And i always remember knowing of them in knowing what they look like before i heard their music and then i heard their music and then i was just hooked. Yeah you know. I you know. I'm i'm probably a little older than you. So you know that midnight. Special show man that would have been nineteen seventy seven grow. This was this was early. This was. I believe this was between kiss alive. One destroyer and You know it was cool. Because i had a group of friends at school that you know we were all kind of discovering rock and roll at the same time and i remember that year in school that no kid and leonard skinner. I'm from the south. And so you know sweet home. Alabama was already the national anthem for us. And so you know the musicality of a ban like skinner We love led zeppelin and You know not long after that. We really got into bands like rush pink. Floyd bad company was big call. Rogers greatest singer of all time. You know things like that. So that set the table for me. I guess jay and then the two big bands not long after that you know when i finally started going to concerts where we saw thin lizzy. Ironically i saw them in seventy nine and that was a game changer for me and The the next summer. I saw van halen for the first time and i was cooked like that's it. I'm i gonna play guitar. You know. I have friends who go to college and get a degree and and and pursued that actually and it wasn't until i had already graduated junior college that i really ever thought of even considering it to be possible to play music as living especially for women coming from such rural backgrounds. There was nobody from where i came from. That was a professional musician. You know so. It just didn't seem possible.
Alive: The Drew Robinson Story
"Jeff where does the story of drew robinson began. The story. Drew robinson begins on magic moment lane in las vegas jeff passan is in mlb insider for espn and his work on the story of drew robinson is up now on espn plus it was just all those those little tiny amazing details down to the name of the street that he grew up on that drew me to him. As a person has a character and his story and he was precocious. What's the first thing people think about you guffaw. I did my best to try to lighten the situation with people. I tried to make people laugh. And i thought that i was good at that. He was the kid youngest of three children who would go next door and sneak through his neighbors doggy door and steal their treats so he could bring him back to this menagerie of animals that he had in his house. There were dogs that were cats. They had a pet in a cage and drew is the kid who would tape his feet to a bicycle and go on a trampoline in his backyard and just bounce around without any care his sister brittany used to hate having him around because drew would take off all of his clothes. Run outside and start riding a bike and her friends would say your brothers naked again. He was also an incredible baseball player and from a very young age even though he wasn't big even though he wasn't strong he had the actions. That coaches look at. And say this kid ever fills out. He is going to be something else but when drew was at that age where he needed to tell his feelings to someone where where he needed to explain that he had this. Lingering doubt in his mind that would never go away regardless of the situation. Whether it was with baseball whether it was with school with friends with family there is always something air pushing him toward this negativity that he just could not escape from can think back to. When i was twelve years old playing little league. I was a kid every single time i struck out i would come in and slam. My bad slammed my helmet kreil time. Because i thought that i had to be perfect in every aspect of my life in terms of the scouting report on drew robinson war his best attributes. He had a lot of power. you know. he's left handed hitter. He ended up hitting that growth spurt. Six foot one hundred ninety pounds. Just a beautiful swing gap the gap power. That was gonna grow into something more if his body filled out and when it did man like he was an actual prospect. I fly all get to right field at that splashdown run for drew. Robinson being a prospect in las vegas in two thousand ten pablo was no small thing. There was a player who had left high school and gone to play junior college ball named bryce harper. Yup and there was a player at bonanza high school. One of the rivals of silverado were drew named kris bryant. So this was a pretty historic high school class and drew wound up making all state. Shortstop and teams were really intrigued. Not just by the power but by his versatility to he played shortstop but they thought he projected his second baseman third baseman. Maybe an outfielder. The possibilities of what drew robinson could be as a baseball player were endless. So scouts were noticing the power versatility and in two thousand ten drew graduates from high school and get drafted. He gets drafted by the texas rangers in the fourth round. And it's a huge moment for him but it doesn't translate in the end jeff too. Big league play what happens. Well he took a while to get to the big leagues. And you know we've seen bull durham and we understand kind of on a surface level. What the minor leagues are like. But for drew it was truly agree. I knew i was beard. Don't get me wrong. But in the moment i was still like. Don't mess this up. I wouldn't allow myself to understand. That mistakes are just mistakes. It doesn't define who. I was
Lou Holtz talks Notre Dame and more
"Lua alluded to you as being a builder and again i go back to the interview which you had here in the studio with us and the obvious question from a person when you They asked you about the rumors you going to. Usc and you said usc is one of the three best jobs. And i said wait a minute. I know notre dame is one of the best. What's the third best job. And you said the one that i get and it turned out to be usc but the university of south carolina. And and i'm just wondering when you reflect back about taking over that program. Why did you take over such a struggling program. And what is it is allowed. Lou holtz everywhere. He has gone to be able to build success. What i foresee a we will not arrive. I think we had three offensive linemen on scholarship is all we had. It did have a quarterback and didn't have a running back to his per se. But you know you grin there you you just you try to fundamental you. Try to do the things that we talked about. Just you know. Build build the football team. And i have gone to six different situations in college and never inherited a winner and went to bow game no later in the second year with matter of fact after going on eleven we finished seventeenth a country next year and beat ohio state in a bowl game following here i think we finished loveth in the country. Beat state again on january one. But it's not because guy it's Coach it's all about the people. If team i mean it's about coaches and players. All all really tried to play their road and believe that you can do something. We read great fan support in south carolina. We were below eligible this year. We'd basically accepted a bowl bid and then of course after a little probably had with trump said in my last football game we decided not to go to a bowl game. I would've liked to vendor micro in a bowl game and yet at the same time within hayes and i'll have the same legacy Last was in clemson was involved. Refer also that's not a great legacy to have necessarily but it's a good football team. Many people coming back in. Like steve spurrier command. And you know he. He's a guy that likes to win. And i think he can win earlier. I believe that in the bud by heart. I think he's an excellent coach. I think the players will respond well to them. And i think we took a the longest losing program the country and took it to a bowl game and he'll take it from there to the championship level when you talk about coaching today And i think about francs being fired after he won nine games and i think about the expectations that go along ty willingham of course sopa but notre dame in his first year wins his first eight and then what has happened to him recently as well. What are the expectations of football coach at a major program today. Well i've been figured that basically very very impatient but you know they. They want instant success. One instant gratification and want to go the top. That the trina goes to the university of louisville inherits a very very good football team. From coach smith went onto michigan state. Now goes between things that a tremendous job but You know feel air. And he has those great athletes. They have great success. Urban meyer. who. I hired at university of notre dame you know he goes to Utah has instant success and everybody sitting there saying well. Hey he can do it let. Let's go get that guy that can do it here that we can win immediately will You know having code having smith there your quarterback as a pretty good asset to have it set about where somebody also had success. And i am sure they they look at it and say well gee they came in and they were down and all of a sudden they one. That's what we want to do and everybody all the fans wanted to two things who's going to be the new coach and he will be the next quarterback i. It's unbelievable i. i don't care you. You want to become unpopular to hurry. Go for being the second team quarterback to the i team the anything too is if you think about it and i was thinking about notre dame just the other day what should be their expectation level and i know the obvious as well to win championships but if you look at the landscape of football today lou there's a lot of teams that are able to get outstanding athletes that don't have the same requirements to get maybe to get into school There's a lot of schools have reputations of putting players into the pros and what have you so having said all of that. What should be the expectation at notre dame today as far as their season and their teams year in year out when further. Joyce hired may at the university of notre dame. He said. I wanna talk to you about a couple of things. Basically not negotiable. These are not negotiable university. Notre dame we are need understand. This now isn't even before i was ever offered the job at you. Know we we. We will not redshirt. We will not take transfer from junior. College will not take a transfer from another school against need search chain core curriculum classes for years of english. Three years of math through calculus at center players are going to miss practice because of late classes or or or labs or tutors or things along that line. The players are going to live on campus. We are going to have great facilities. You have nothing to do with the discipline but athlete on campus We don't pay a whole lot You're not allowed to president of the university. Notre dame was the rule when say they gave the president rates once that they could give me a raise anyone on all that and he said with the we're expecting to compete for a national championship at least once every three or four years and I didn't find anything wrong with ed. And we did the head it. I think that should be their expectations. Not necessarily this year even next year. But i do think They expect Charlie wise to compete for the national championship. And i think he will. The same things are saying about notre dame they said about whenever procedure went there years ago. They said it. When i was there i remember my first year recruiting at notre dame. My aunt had us fifty eight to sixty year before. I got there in their last football game on national television and You go into a home to recruit a young man that have all these That have all these articles in there. About how Notre dame can't win anymore and the schedules to tough. There's all this. And there's all that. And i just don't believe that i i think you know. The sec schedule's pretty tough When i was at university dame might think at fifty four percent of games ever coach there were against a top twenty five football teams. But that's part of notre dame you play the best you know. We played washington when they're really good. We played tennessee. We played texas We we we played Miami florida played. Florida state You just that's just the way you did it at notre dame and I don't think it's any different now. I might be a little bit down right now but yeah. I think it's going to be fine but lou. Isn't it a little bit different. In the sense. That i used to think of notre dame and you probably going into a home where you know it was. I want this kid. The kid's gonna sign right there. It was like with john wooden at ucla. I mean john recruiting because everybody wanted to come and play for john wooden at ucla during those particular years but now the competition it. It's almost like well. We've got a pro passing program so if you're an outstanding quarterback you're going to go to this score that school i mean isn't the the mystique oh most of notre dame and not to their own detriment or fall but isn't it a little bit perceived differently today might be but i don't think necessarily it should be. I mean on tv every saturday. One time when i said notre dame we had fifty seven players active in the nfl. The next was penn state with thirty nine and third with southern cal with thirty eight But we we had to work hard. Recruit again we. We found uphill struggle. But here's the different. We could go to california and would we went after navigate. It was us usc or ucla. When would end attack between us. Texas tech today and you went into florida as a youth. Florida state miami and florida. You went into nebraska to be between you and the university of nebraska. You could go anywhere in the country and you would have legitimate chance to recruit the best athlete in that state but you would have to use the beat. The home state and you didn't always do that but when they start talking about well. Nfl i want this type of program. Notre dame's not a four year decision. Support here decision. What do you do in your football's over guarantee you're gonna play in the nfl with china education. You'll get what are you gonna learn. And are you going to be better prepared to go in there. You know i was watching Tonight on tv On some sports show where they had the ten major mistake officials made and one of them was grown bettas called tails and the guy said hatch. And i had to laugh because a whole time as notre dame the first thing i said the locker room before the game was we will call tales. We always called. This was a game. But i just think that You're still a forty year decision. Not a four year decision. You talk about the only thing that's going to change it from where you are today to where you'll be five years from now the books you read the people you meet in a dream a dream and the baby. You're gonna meet university in our day and they're going to be the ones that are going to be illness companies and being. Ceo's and they're going to be the leaders that those are the people you're gonna come in contact with and then you get him on campus. Let them talk to your athletes now. The guy that doesn't feel comfortable in that environment isn't gonna get isn't gonna fit well notre dame anyway and now there were always people that didn't want the discipline did want the the challenge. Academically didn't want to have to work that hard on their academics guy that they won't be interested in the university of notre dame necessarily but one thing i used to laugh about was you would read. You would read these top twenty two football players in america. What schools air considered and other day. It'd be listed on about eighteen oven. Maybe seven of them. We were recruiting because we couldn't get in school academically. But they would always put notre dame was one of their schools Florida not because it made them look good so to speak and I think notre dame will get back. I really do because it's a national school a special school. One of the thing that i think is the lou holtz legacy when it comes to football in. It's almost like parenting. In a sense. You mentioned about urban meyer. I think a barry alvarez a host of other coaches you must feel awfully proud of the the legacy of lou holtz from the coaches that went on from underneath year wing onto other programs either as assistance or successful head coaches as well. I've always felt that. I learned this from woody. Hayes have an obligation to prepare your coaches to become head coaches. I'd always explain why we did things and how we did it. the philosophy at center. I think we've made it look simple that everybody would come in and they go. I can do that. I wanna be head coach. But i went down. Visit very alvorada in preparation for the bogue. Gabi speed come down and one time we had about. I don't know maybe a sixty some former graduate assistants were either in major college or professional that had been graduate assistant said many people gone on u. p. care coach for me at the university of arkansas. We we started him out You know monte kiffin coach for him in the defense coordinator tampa bay et cetera. Just you know it's just so many coaches you enjoy it and that's one of the reasons why you wanna talk to me. Now's not because. I prepare them but because of the contribution they made our success but not mind. There's there's their contribution to my success is far greater mike. Entre bution to there's

State of the Apple Watch
"L. Over one. This is David. Sparks joined by my fellow co co-hosts, your friend and Mine Mr Stephen, Hackett Hello, student. David. How how're you? I'm great I you know how much I enjoy recording memories. It just puts a spring in my step. It's good. It's a good way to start the week. We normally coord- these the beginning part of the week and it's it's nice to have it have it early sets a good tone and this week. I feel like we're talking about a subject that needs some love, so I am looking forward to talking about some love about the Apple Watch. Yeah, we've been going through these state of episode talking about the Mac and iphone ipad apple services, and now we've come to apples at least physically smallest platform the Apple Watch. Before we get started the usual announcements, we have a forum. That's really great at talk. Dot mcpike, DOT, com. We have a newsletter that you can sign up for right here. In the show notes and get all of the carefully crafted links and shown delivered right to your inbox when the show publishes, and if you WanNa, get the show without ads and little extra content sign up to become a member for the power users episode. You can do that. Right on. The webpage was sink set of an announcement I like that. Hey, man I'm not messing around today and the the member episode we are going to be talking about Stevens iphone. That is now in the Beta it is. Yep I hit the button after our last episode. I've been running it for almost a week and I have a lot of thoughts. Some looking forward to talk to you and getting caught up on I was fourteen, and we're making this subsidy about the Apple Watch, so of course you put the bait on your watch to right. No I did not. I did I took one for the team. Guys you did took a bold choice because you can't undo it yourself. You got a good apple I have no fear I. Write off the scene in Indiana Jones temple. It was the third one was the third called. Last crusade last crusade where he puts his foot out there and just the leap of Faith I. Just did that for you guys. And a problem I watch still works. My wrist is not on. Fire were all good. It's good. Apple Watch so this was the first product that really showed up after Steve left us. I think so. That was rumored to be the case in the lead up to the Apple Watch that it was going to be kind of the first full-blown product that apple a taken on. After jobs death, which was three years before this. I don't know. Exactly how true that is, but obviously the bulk of the work happened after his his death and so. In my mind, this is the product whether or not the dates perfectly lineup. This is the first product that is the post jobs era, this remarks that insurance for me and I think you could see that I I watched some of the original keynote and you can kind of see that. Tim Cook's very emotional about it. I think he had a lot invested in. It and apple was Kinda got to prove that they could still do it even without jobs at the helm. Is a very interesting product an interesting time. Know. I was felt like they were getting a bum rap. I mean Steve was amazing amazing in. And complicated, and you know if you're reading about him sometimes pretty difficult, but. he got some of the low hanging fruit while he was there like the phone. And I think the PAT were both pretty obvious of places for apple to go. And a raise like well, they can't innovate anymore. Well Ziv got the good ones in. And sure. Watch when they introduced the Apple Watch I think probably watch. Wearing was at an all time low because of the success of the phone I. Mean How many people I don't need an apple. Watch I just pull my phone in my pocket. I want to see what time it is. so I I always feel like they got kind of a bum rap and I would argue that like this apple silicon transition is proof that they still know what they're doing. Yeah, but the watch. was that first big move and I remember when it came out they what they went to the junior college down there and Cupertino that built. Refrigerated Demo area outside. Yeah, it was the venue. They introduced the first Macintosh. So that that is Danza. College had some real. NERD history about it. Yeah, I was in Cupertino going meet some people and Apple, and I went right by that place, and like Oh. Yeah, that's the watch place. But the the initial keynote. Was Interesting I. Feel like the Apple Watch is one of the few products apples announced. Were I'm not sure they knew what people were going to do with it. You know I agree in re watching it. It feels really scattered, and I try to thinking about other big product launches, so the ipod was a very simple device at the beginning. Put your music on it. Listen to your music. You could shuffle right pretty a pretty narrow scope of features. The IPHONE was a big step out of the original iphone. Demo- which courses famous jobs probably best keynote. Broader than the IPOD, but. Still kind of felt cohesive jobs, had that really long demos like I'm going to go to a map and make phone call and make a note, and it was all related and the IPAD. They had you know these things. This device is better than the phone and better than the laptop the watch. Really I think they had four big ideas, so they had time keeping that. Hey, this is a watch. A lot of the original stuff about the Apple Watch from apple is about how exact time piece it is, and how beautiful it is as a watch and. That's that's fine. It was then fitness, but not a huge focus on fitness, definitely like there is now. They had communication which really revolved in the beginning. It's not even part of watch os anymore. Were you had I think it was eight or ten close contacts and the whole side button on the watch the Bun. Underneath the digital crown was dedicated to getting you to this friends interface where you could go around and message, somebody do digital touch right I'm gonNA draw a little fish to tell you that I want to go out to sea, food or two yellow taps means you're late to a meeting. That didn't really ever take off I. Don't think
"Work that you do is fascinating to me on so many different levels, not the least of which is. That I came really close to following a really similar path. And then ended up backing away for reasons that still are not entirely clear to me. Lifelong fascination with sort of a not just the human condition, but for why people do what they do, and how they go to the extremes of their potential wondering, if if this touches down at an early age for you, if this was sort of like a a later fascination, cool The first exposure I had to this is. Was In high school and I realized that the thing that I wanted to do. It was a surfing experience, so I grew up surfing. and. I could do what I wanted to do. As a fifteen year old kid, you don't Infre- surfing, but then when it came time to compete. He was completely different for me and it wasn't that my physical skills went away. It wasn't that my technical skills went away. It was that my mind by mental skills like the way that I was thinking about things was choking off access. To buy abilities and I didn't know there was a discipline called psychology as the first person to go to school my family, so we didn't come from. Condition where was like sophistication in structure in theory? We're just trying to figure it out as we along. And, so I bumped into it at an early age and I, said Oh. My goodness thing inside me. It's my mind like what is this and so it started there at an early age and I didn't know until it was like my first year in college. That there was even a discipline in a study of psychology, really because in high is exposed to it at a class action. I had a class and. It didn't make any sense. It was like Freud skinner. All the kind of classics which I came to appreciate later. I didn't understand it, so then it was through a pain is how I came exposed to it in sent me down a path. It pain in the context of you seeing something that you to do, but somehow couldn't figure out how to get there does exactly right. Yeah, I had something inside may wanted to express is the way I think about it like I had a physical thing i. I wanted to do a wave, and every time that there's a competition with the people were judging, and there was people on the beach, watching I became a shell of myself, and I couldn't express. It wasn't so much about I couldn't do the thing I mean. That's part of it, but I couldn't express what I was wanting to be able to express I, mean changing their own lapping, but really two distinct things like one is really tapping into the fullness of what you perceive to be your potential, but. The other is sort of it. It's it's a stifled expression. It's it's like I have a sense for who I am on an identity level, and how I want that to be put out into the world and I can't get it. It's like when you hear when you play Guitar, and you hear the dream ref. In your head. But your fingers can actually make it happen on guitar. Yes, so that's close to what happened to me. Is that I knew I could do it? Though because I had done it in free surfing plenty of times, and so it was actually there, it was just stage. Friday was performance anxiety. So it wasn't, it wasn't the mechanical part of it was the psychological part, so you mentioned that you were the first to go to college your family. Curious about that also, what was the background in your family? That sort of said okay, world good without going the route of higher education. And then what was it that happen in your mind? That said that's actually not good enough for me. Co question is so set. The context here is that I grew up in on a farm in Virginia, and I should say I grew up with nature, not necessary on. It is a big distinction you know in that way, and so I grew up with it until the age of about. Ten. In my parents were very lazy fair, they had very little structure if I was out late, and it got dark, not eat until very late. You know like it was super. Figuring, out kid, you know, and they let me just kind of play with nature. And my parents pretty much dropped out so I'm forty eight ends. They were young parents and they this was during the Vietnam revolt. So they're like okay. We're dropping out some more of the hippie life, but it wasn't. It wasn't an angry approach. It was like hey, let's go find a little sanctuary that we could build you build a family, so it was very myopic in that sense. In My dad came from a large family, he was had his first job fourteen, supporting his family in some respects, so they came blue-collar hard-working. Christian valued family, and they instilled inside of me strong values, and then this kind of freedom to explore. But there was no formal structure to any of it. But saying well, my mom's side, you know, and so her father came over to America at the age of fifteen by himself from Italy and so it's just a blue-collar, hard-working approach life and I, it was I was. Surfing a lot as I mentioned, and then due north, the PSAT's are of course also. I got a zero on those and then on the sat. With those are I got zero on those. I went surfing on both of them. And My parents pulled me aside my senior year and they're like Hey Mike. We tried a lot of your friends are going to college. We didn't know really to help you, but at this point. Get a job and get out. Or Mrs my senior year in high school or you could go to community college and you can stay here. Thought I'm not moving out like I'm I'm not done surfing like. How can I go? How can I have a job? Nine to five and surf so still real young in my church life, and so I said okay. Let me. Do the school thing so? I knew that the school that I was going to go to. Was I. don't know two miles away from a close to world class surf break. It sounds like I know how to do this. So! I love the decision. Making criteria has like perfect perfect, and so I really thought that I was going to extend my high school experience for a couple more years I was not interested in academic academia or becoming an academician in any respect. So a second semester and there was three professors who are really good friends now. This is the junior college right? So this was this isn't. I didn't have to get in I just had to apply. I just had to show up.
College football preseason takes shape
"I'm gonna start this Houston problem they were not all football players but I don't think that would make a difference the college football power brokers Houston in my opinion did the right thing by shutting it down but there's still more than a month and a half away before D. day for college football and its season it's been put out there with cal football wanting to start that last week in August August twenty ninth that weekend if there's nothing going on by August first than this season could be in danger maybe not a full season but at least a total season they'll be some football but maybe not as many as twelve games could be eighty could be nine no more than that so yeah that's the D. day a month and a half away before that's something accountable has to think about not just for the sport but also for the season but you and I well smart here are we we're all grown folks here we all want to see if other schools are going to do this is something like that similar happens to them the way it's happened the Houston even though they were not all football players the six that tested positive Coleman nineteen we all up with all the grown adults here we got a pretty good idea what they're going to do you know we were going to quarantine the players we're going to make sure that everybody that was around them is safe we're going to increase the tax we're going to make sure that everybody is going to be as fine as possible we're going to quarantine but we don't want anything like this to continue to get in the way of college football not being played in twenty twenty because we know what the force is out there four point two billion dollars is that force that's how much college football stands to lose if there is no college football this year they can have college football without fans in the stands and they're plenty of athletic director the same what we can do ten percent if we could do twenty percent we can advance their they may want to eat there we want to do this that's extra money that's money that we will be losing yet I got a pretty good idea what they're going to do when that four point two billion dollar force is out there and think how the future will be impacted in all college athletics and not in a good way Plano's big time budgets out the window jobs eliminated that's going to be gone to for starters it's going to be seismic if cal football's not played the full twelve games in division one division two division three NAIA junior college all that money that has always been difficult for ball may not be there going forward many people may have panicked hearing about Houston not the power five schools they say Houston that's your problem well wait a minute they went all football players who dodged that bullet okay we should be fine if we only have one football player testing positive we got a hundred twenty kids here who we should be fine it's not that bad anymore it's going to be okay Houston hang in there we're with you because of four point two billion dollars is on the line the last thing to college football you want anything or any covert nineteen potential outbreak happening that's gonna take with the sun side that has always been that money when it comes to college
Deborah Treisman Reads David Foster Wallace
"Chosen a story to read and I asked listeners to submit questions for me to discuss through our twitter and facebook pages. The story I've chosen is good. People by David Foster Wallace which was published in the New Yorker in January of two thousand seven all the different angles ways. They come at the decision together did not ever included the word for had he wants said. It avowed that he did love her. Love Cherry Fisher then it all would have been transformed. It would not be a different stance or angle but a difference in the very thing. They were praying deciding on together. I chose a story in part because it was the last piece that I worked on with David Foster Wallace before his death in two thousand eight and because our correspondence about the story stayed very vividly in my memory and came to mind when he died. The story was eventually part of the Pale King. David Foster Wallace's posthumous novel which was published in. Two thousand eleven at the time that he sent it to me in December of two thousand six. Though I'm not sure that he knew it was going to end up as part of the novel he was working on. It may have been a separate story then or it might have been an outtake that he wasn't planning to include in his note to me. He identified it as a short fiction. Submission the fact. The story is in a sensory thinking of Hemingway's nineteen twenty seven story hills like white. Elephants also makes me suspect that it was first written as a self contained piece. In Wallace's story and in Hemingway's a young couple for would not be convenient to have a baby talk awkwardly around the idea of abortion without ever using the word in the Wallace Story. Unlike in the Hemingway. The young couple are devout Christians who have to grapple with the concept from that point of view as well as you will hear. I'll be talking some more after the story but now here's good. People by David Foster Wallace good people. They were up on a picnic table at the park by the lake by the edge of Lake with part of a down tree in the shallows half hidden by the Bank Lane Dean junior and his girlfriend both in blue jeans and button up shirts. They sat up on the tables top portion and had their shoes on the bench part that people sat on a picnic or fellowship together and carefree times it gone to different high schools but the same junior college where they had met in campus ministries. It was springtime and the parks grass was very green in the air suffused with honeysuckle and lilacs. Both which was almost too much. There were bees and the angle of the sun made the water of the shallows. Look dark there had been more storms that week with some down trees in the sound of chainsaws all up and down. His parents street their postures on the picnic table. We're both the same forward kind with their shoulders rounded and elbows on their knees in this position the girl rocked slightly and once put her face in her hands but she was not crying. Lane was very still an immobile and looking past the bank at the down tree in the shallows and it's ball of exposed roots going all directions and the trees cloud of branches all half in the water. The only other individual nearby was dozen space tables away by himself standing upright looking at the torn up hole in the ground. There were the tree gone over. It was still early at an all. The shadows wheeling right and shortening. The girl were thin old checked cotton shirt with pro coloured snaps with the long sleeves down and always smelled very good and clean like someone you could trust and care about. Even if you weren't in Love Lane. Dean had liked the smell of her right away. His mother called her down to Earth and liked her thought she was good people. You could tell she made this evident in little ways the shallow slapped from different directions at the tree as if almost teething on it sometimes when alone and thinking or struggling to turn a matter over to Jesus Christ in prayer he would find himself putting his fist in his palm and turning it slightly as if still playing and pounding his glove to stay sharp and alert and center. He did not do this now. It will be cruel and indecent to do this now. The older individual stood beside his picnic table. He was added but not sitting unlooked also out of place in a suit coat or jacket and the kind of men's hat lanes grandfather wore and photos as a young insurance man. He appeared to be looking across the lake. If he moved lane. Didn't see it. He looked more like a picture than a man. There were not any ducks in view. One thing lane did was reassure her again that he'd go with her and be there with her. It was one of the few safer decent things he could really say the second time. He said it again now. She shook her head and laughed in an unhappy way. That was more just air out her nose. Her real life was different where he be was the waiting room. She said that he'd be thinking about her and feeling bad for her. She knew but he couldn't be in there with her. This was so obviously true that he felt like a nanny that he'd kept on about it and now knew what she thought. Every time he went. Set it it hadn't brought her comfort or ease the burden at all the worse. He felt the stiller. He sat the whole thing felt balanced on a knife or wire if he moved to put his arm up or touch her. The whole thing could tip over. He hated himself for sitting so frozen. He could almost visualize himself tiptoeing. Pass something explosive. A big stupid looking tiptoe like in a cartoon the whole last black had been this way and it was wrong. He knew it was wrong. Knew something was required of him. That was not this terrible frozen care and caution but he pretended to himself did not know what it was was required. He pretended it had no name. He pretended that not saying aloud. What he knew to be right and true was for her sake was for the sake of her needs and feelings. He also worked dock and routing at ups on top of school but a trade it to get the day off after they decided together two days before he had awakened very early and tried to pray but could not. He was freezing more and more solid. He felt like that he had not thought of his father the blank frozenness of his father even in church which had once filled him with such pity. This was the truth lane. Dean junior felt son on one arm as he pictured in his mind an image of himself on a train waving mechanically to something that got smaller and smaller as the train pulled away. His father and his mother's father had the same birthday. A cancer Sherry's hair was coloured almost corn blonde very clean the skin through central part pink in the sunlight. They'd sat here long enough. That only their right side was shaded. Now he could at her head but not at her different parts of him felt unconnected to each other. She was smarter than him and they both knew it. It wasn't a school lane was an accounting and business and did all right. He was hanging in there. She was a year older twenty but it was also more. She had always seemed to lane to be on good terms with her life. In a way that age could not account for his mother had put it that she knew what is she wanted which was nursing and not an easy program at Peoria Junior College and plus she worked hostessing at the embers and had bought her own car. She was serious in a way lane light. She had a cousin that died when she was thirteen. Fourteen that she'd loved and been close with only talked about it that once. He liked her smell and her down the arms and the way she exclaimed when something made her laugh he like just being with her and talking to her she was serious in her faith and values in a way that lane had liked and now sitting here with her on. The table found himself. Afraid of this was an awful thing. He was starting to believe that he might not be serious. In his faith he might be somewhat of a hypocrite like the Assyrians in Isaiah which would be a far graver sending the appointment. He has decided he believed
"junior college" Discussed on All Ball with Doug Gottlieb
"Is the great junior college out six thousand feet of rain on? It's just. Everything over the top grant, and I was with him for two years there and then knowing at the time. It's kind of being with coach. Mo going back to port state when he was an assistant. You know and I've been very fortunate kind of be the Stanley that I kind of I've been. You know linked into with coach. Ma was coach Moses System Colorado Guy that. He ran with as when he was. An assistant was marked few Leon, rice, tat, boil, mark, turgeon, and so I was able to get into that group of guys and then. When I went to midland junior college tad was close to getting the job. Also Randy Ray was close to get a division one head job and I just knew by. The Midland. Make me a lot more attracted to them. Having recruited nationally haven't been at top your toss program. Have internationals ties so that allow me to get the next job weaver state with Randy Ray. Okay so at GimMe Gimme. Your Best Gimme your best midland. Junior college story can be about recruiting a player. A phone call at night a run in like it because I was watching. Have you watched cheer? You Watch this dot net. Cheer I. Watched bits and pieces. Yeah, Oh, he says about Navarro Navarro Junior College which is also. China right and I was trying to explain to my family. I was like this is what all junior college sports are like. What do you mean? Everybody's there for reason. Nobody really wants to be there for good. You know and you're just. You're there to try and get a scholarship to get the hell out of there, right? That's really the and you know you go to these big ones and try and win a championship whatever? And I was like you know these while it seems like these these crazy terrible back stories that these kids come from our unique like they are unique, but it's kind of like. Go to go to the bass and we started to watch the football the. What is the football version like my blanking on the name?.
Are You Bored and Tired?
"Going to have a great discussion here at Chad. Chad's got a kind of a different background. We're used to Dante and I when we come in here. We talk about men's issues kind of from the idea of being being husband of father and while Chad's a husband and father he also has another unique perspective. But before we do that Chad. Why don't you introduce yourself to listeners? Kind of You know who you are. How long you been married? Kids background where you're at in the country and all that type of stuff. Yeah my name is Chad Zouk. I am the Creator and curator of a new kind of man and you can find us on Instagram at that handle or on facebook with the same and actually I am a pastor of a local church in Dublin Georgia. But some of the best things about my life is actually. I have been married for twenty six years to my high school sweetheart. We got married at Nineteen. Didn't have a clue found out that we really still don't have a clue but we're working on it and we have to fantastic kids a twenty three year old son and then a sixteen year old daughter and my son is out of the House and my daughter is a junior in high school. So that is what I'm doing and we have been in full time ministry for fourteen years while this worked on airplanes and pushed a toolbox around the hangar and prior to that I was in the navy awesome awesome. And so you guys. You guys are closing in on the empty nest thing to that in a couple years out once your daughter gets out of the house right. Yeah Yeah it's surreal. I mean we're actually doing a junior college day a week from sat at her day. So this is. It's happening really fast. And she cannot wait to get out of the house. At least that's what she says. Now Yeah that's what I thought too. The kids left and then one came back for a little bit and it was kind of like okay and everybody told me they warned me. Like hey don't just because they leave doesn't mean they won't come back so yeah we'll we'll see we got the the sun's gone now for for good. We got rid of him now. He's he's out and then our daughters in college so we'll see We'll see if this is really for the the empty nest piece so so Chad. Tell me a little bit too. So what prompted you to to start a new kind of man? I know you guys You got a podcast doing some You do blog posts as well right and then just just developing this ministry bit. How did how did the new kind of man come about you know I? I have to say that my work way before a new kind of man was generated. My work Really began win. God taught me how to be a father by him by him. Bothering me in that was against B twenty four years ago or so since twenty three so before he was born really started my journey and then Just kind of learned things along the way and I started working with men at a local level probably eighteen years ago eight and so doing that and kind of walking people in walking through groups and all of this Roh is rooted in what was the catalyst for all of it was my healing as God. Healed me of some wins in my upbringing and I wasn't raised in a Christian home and just a lot of this and marriage in just all sorts of fear in confusion people pleasing just across his past as God started. Heal those wounds. I just couldn't help but a see those wounds in other men who I wanted to be an instrument of God to help heal those so in that work with a new kind of man it actually went public a year and a half ago or so in the podcast is brand new on out for a couple of months. Now it's picking up steam and Was Gracious to have you on. That has actually been the the podcast that has been downloaded the most so that to you. So but yeah it. It's being great in now is because of social media and podcasting as mother things that I'm doing Just a private men's facebook group called new man crew. Now have the opportunity to helping more men and I'm thankful to be able to do so. I WANNA I WANNA help men to become stronger to bring Lord God and bring good in the world just so everybody understands like you say you've been doing this for a long time almost eighteen years now but just recently kind of did you know coming into the social media and doing the Internet thing. But you've been you've been down in the trenches working with men for for good Almost two decades now. That's correct right. Yeah Yeah Way before I was actually in full time ministry which is doing it just again as a man and his God would show me some things. I just can't help stick my nose into other men's lives. It would wanNA listen and walk along with them. In God's really been gracious than he's allowed me to see some amazing things happen in other men's lives and any still doing work in me. Yeah a man. I'm perfect so my sanctification has done. So Nah Yeah I wish yeah I think we are all a work in progress. Some of US more of a project than others. Dante Dante's a huge project. So since he's not here all through that Al but anyways seriousness aside here but Chad so one of the things I wanted to really talk to you about an and I kind of luted. This in the beginning was Dante. Ni- we kind of look at. We look a lot of this through the lens of being a husband or father being somebody's sitting in the pew or or Lay lay leaders or or ministry leaders and stuff like that. But Chad. You've been blessed you've kind of You're in a unique position as a shepherd of the flock to to see what's going on with men from different perspective. So you know if you could from from a pastor's perspective kind of explain what what are you seeing right now. What are you know? Positives order negatives. What are some struggles? Maybe men are having in your congregation. Could you could you talk a little bit about that? Yeah for sure. I think I'll give one of the positives that I see happening with. Men and women also within American Christianity. Anyway is I think some of the denomination walls coming down and then some of the elements of spiritual formation instead of just being seen as is relevant to or being seen as to eastern or to. You know whatever new agey. I think that there there are people who are understanding the benefits of some of the neglected spiritual disciplines which is allowing people to really understand the value of their time in of their soul. In a couple of things. I would speak about it. As far as that goes is the benefit of silence. We we are in the noisiest time period in history. Yep So many things I mean you go to the gas station. There's no there's screen at the gas station. You know with an advertisement trying to sell you something for showing me something or giving the news about something. Of course we have television and we have our phones and we have all the social media things. Not many of those things can be great but they're vying for attention in. All of those things are kind of pulling us away from our purpose at times so. I think that one of the things that I see is is now other again. Those denominational lines going away to where it's not just the logical dogma in saying no. I can't do what you do because of this. I think there were actually starting to see some of the benefits of cross denominational in incorporating some of those bits of speech formation. That are are helping us to learn the value of slowing down so that we can be present in the areas that we need to be president in the

"Player and very like we had out here in Vegas gained all of the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses.

Toby gotta one extra one hundred million dollars Lake Griffin got an extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug and kiss each got seventy five million dollars extra so the number one dollars and sense that give you an example of what it is because with with four years have yet to wait four years after your high school graduate. You wouldn't lose that kind of capital and you lose that plant on you will lose four entitled number. That will help them get into the hall. Laid on those numbers would be race. And you don't know what happened four years then in College Spencer Haywood Aba Nba Legend and hall of Famer. Hey will always be remembered that the person opened the door for underclassmen college basketball players to leave college early to enter the NBA thereby creating the Spencer Haywood Rule Haywood attended the University of Detroit and help the US Olympic team to a gold medal at the nineteen sixty eight summer games in Mexico City. Nineteen sixty eight. After two years in college he decided to enter the NBA draft citing family financial hardship the NBA however at the time for players entering the draft until four years. After the high school graduation. Hey would then sign with the ABA. Denver rockets play one season leading the league in scoring and rebounding as a rookie since he now had a professional season under his belt he decided to challenge the NBA rule. Once again and signed with the Seattle Supersonics in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the NBA wasn't having it. Hey will the league all the way to the US or frame court and one on September eleven? Two Thousand Fifteen. He wasn't Tryin Naismith Basketball Hall of fame. I'm John Johansen Junior and welcome to another edition of and Black America on this week's program. Aba An NBA Legend and hall of Famer Semester. Haywood in Black America. Charles Barkley went out on a limb when this stuff was acting when they were acting crazy. And I'm they missed me like the last time of going into the hall of fame and I was like put on the backburner right house. Barclay stepped up and said on. Nuff is enough and did it publicly. He did it every way you said enough is enough now. This is not right and he stood up as a player and he started educating young players. Like do y'all know who is in our presence with Spencer Haywood Blah Blah. And he started talking about. You know there's like three cases that changed the face of force in one dispenser Haywood Heywood versus the NBA. I went to the Supreme Court and then play a young player. Started like Whoa wait a minute. I know him I see him but I never knew that until Charles was the one that should should should be there. And he's my what you call. My advocate advocate is Just to a good person. Just a wonderful person. Spencer Haywood won Olympic gold medal in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight at age nineteen and signed with the Seattle Supersonics two years later after dominating the ABA and a case that went to the US Supreme Court he sued the NBA or rule that prohibited players being draft until the league until they waited for years after graduating from high school. He won that case and nineteen eighty. He won a world championship with the Los Angeles Lakers as a twenty rookie in nineteen sixty nine. Seventy season he led the American Basketball Association both scoring and rebounding and was named the League's Most Valuable Player and rookie of the year. One on April twenty seven nineteen forty nine and silver city Mississippi into a family of Chen Children Hayward grew up in a dying era of American history. His mother picked cotton for two dollars a day and Heywood joined her in the field at the age of five hundred sixty four he moved to Chicago then to Detroit in the motor city. He leads pershing high school to the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Michigan class. A State Basketball Championship. He went on to a stellar careers at Trinidad State Junior College and the University of Detroit in the summer of nineteen nine hundred sixty eight. He helped the United States to a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Mexico City on September. The eleventh. Two Thousand Fifteen. Hey what was inducted into Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of fame? My first reaction was You know is this fact in. Is this true because I had had Three falls a long before that because most reporters and most people who look at numbers and they at by numbers as a player and that this guy was. Mvp of the ABA averaging thirty and twenty five years with the Seattle Supersonics average in twenty six and thirteen and Olympic record holder and all of these different categories and as still as leading score and also was the outstanding college player of the year. So they look at all these things and they just assume that everybody thought again. Then you know also I went to the Supreme Court to fight he would versus the NBA to pave the way for Lebron's Michael Jordan magic. All of them they come through what is called. I the NBA. They call it early entry and now. I think it should be called what it is to Spencer. Haywood because they have the Larry Bird rule and they have Oscar Robertson. Rule regrettably Oscar but I know they promote birds and Larry Bird's modified version of my role. Larry Bird came in on a dispenser. It will but anyway so for years we thought this would happen and then there was a couple of false alarms that it did happen. So I was kidding around with John Deliver with the The Chairman and CEO. The hall and he was mentioning. You know. Well I probably spend Kareem. Rise is always the top. Yeah I said well. What does that got to do with with Kareem abdul-jabbar? My my blonde jokes Right so so Yeah it was. It was delighted. Mandic to get the call and to finally get to call it. Finally get it in but you know my mother used to sing this whole Psalm Lord and may not come when you want and buddies right on time. And that's my Jackson right so you know if it had to happen any other time. I think it would have been not as powerful as it is today and It was right on time. And it's on God's time so I'm very grateful and very humble Vita journey understand so once. You heard that you were going to be inducted. Walk us through that period from the time that you got to call to the induction ceremony that took place last Friday. September the eleventh. What all the activities have you been involved with. Well I've been all over the country Speaking and people wanting to know this story because it's a unique story and it is basketball history but yeah you know it hasn't been told so It's a new newfound appreciation for Spencer. Haywood so players have been embracing me like only at USA basketball here. In Las Vegas Games all the players on that team Blake Griffin. All of the young guys coming up and giving me hugs and kisses and thanking me. Because you know that situation just in terms of dollars and cents per Lebron James. He's got an extra one hundred million dollars. Coby got a one extra one hundred million dollars but griffin got extra fifty million dollars Kevin Durant who give me a big hug. 'cause he's got seventy five million dollars extra so that's the numbers in dollars and sense that. I give you an example of what it is because with with four years. If you have to wait for years after your high school classic graduate you would lose that kind of capital and you'll lose that plan time loser scoring titles you'll lose numbers that will help them get into the hall. Later on those numbers would be raced. And you don't know what's going to happen in four years in college. You could get hurt. A lot of things could happen so they fully appreciating news. So it's a good feeling because of forty four years more to this to happen so it is It is right on time on God. Signed so and then I went to I've been doing a lot of golf. Tournaments or charitable events and also just playing a lot and I spend a Lotta time with my family. My daughters and in fact I gotTA leave Again next week my next two oldest daughters having our first grand and So I gotta go in go through the process with her and It is it is a spectacular time and I also sit back John and and think about the times we were sitting in your dad's barber shop. They all sunset and this and just Nevada in Detroit for people who don't know right in Detroit Michigan and John Fathers where we congregate And and and and do our conversation and get a nice. Yeah because he didn't allow us to walk around. I hair off falling away years and stuff. So that's right. Yeah you know that's right So we would sit there and listen and talk and just pass the ball sports but all so I've been reflecting on Detroit. I went over to my neighborhood yesterday. day before yesterday and spent some time over there. Thursday and looking around and just just hearing up. Because done you know the story you know. When I came up from Mississippi I had no place to say I had no family there and James and either bill took in and adopted me along with my coach. Will Robinson and then we had waned diet. Dr Wayne die of your your own zone by Diet. Right Do all of my academics bring me up to snuff there. Oh my God it was just A. It's just a lot of love was having an and I see in Detroit and it's always been that way you know. They've always reached out and help each
Coach Monica Aldama from 'Cheer': Sometimes I have to mat-talk myself
"Today. We have a very very very special episode of skimp on the couch. We are joined by Monica Alabama. In case you do not know this name. I don't even know what you've been watching what you've been doing. She's the coach of Navarro College College cheerleading and has fourteen national championships under her belt. We are so so so fucking excited to do this. Interview or team team is the focus of the new Netflix documentary series. Cheer if you haven't seen it I just don't know what to say. Stop what you're doing and go watch it. The series defies as traditional stereotypes about cheerleading as it follows them through the physical and mental challenges of the sport. My God what they do you got to watch him. Also Showcases Monica's coaching style and the impact. She's had on her athletes on and off the Mat. Monica in case you have a notice. We're literally obsessed with the show. We cannot wait to talk to you. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. Stink you thank you for having me. Okay so we want to jump in which is just want to ask you to skim your resume for us. When did you start working? Just kind of walk us through each job you've had well. It's not much because I started really young. After I graduated from College I moved to Dallas for a year and worked at a computer company but it was really just just a job out of college. Just put something on the resume and I really wasn't happy there and a friend of mine that I had gone to high school with was the assistant baseball coach at the college. Judge and his mother happened to be mature coach when I was in high school so I had helped her some when I was in college and he called me one day and said that this job was open and I should apply for it so I did. It wasn't really something I thought I would ever do. And our only I think twenty two when I applied for it so twenty five years later and I'm still still there. What did you think you're going to be doing? I have a business degree in finance and then I have my MBA. When I was in college I really thought that I wanted to move here and maybe work work on Wall Street or do something in the finance industry? That's what I thought I wanted to do but God had other plans so I mean so much better. Yeah Yeah everyone in our office has everyone we know is absolutely obsessed with the show and part of I think why it's resonated so much is actually actually your role in the show specifically you represent the mentor coach. We all wish we had in our life and one of my friends at this me recently and I was like. It's a perfect way to describe you. It's like Tammy Taylor coach Taylor and I'm very curious g you see what other people see about your role with these kids. I don't you know I mean we're when we film this documentary were just opening up our lives to people and I mean I know the impact that I have because these kids tell me and especially after they're gone a lot of them reached back out to me and just let me know how much they appreciate a lot of times. They didn't realize how much that they should have appreciated me at the time but they really learned a lot so over the years. I think that's why I'm still here because because of the kids and the reassurance that I'm doing something right you know in their lives. I'm just there to in my job. I didn't really know that this was going to be so big. I WANNA start off before we get into it with just some and clarifying questions. That every time I talked to someone about share and I've been asking people and friends. There's a baseline of questions that they want to start off with just from the show. The first one is do four year colleges have cheerleading programs. That just are not as good or is it a different division. It's a different division. We're in junior college. Division and over the years division has really dwindled because for one reason number one they created what was called an intermediate division where you could do lower lower level skill so like the teams that were not able to really compete against us. Move Down to those levels. If we don't have the highest score we normally have at least top three are- out of the whole competition over the past mini mini. Since we've been winning and so a lot of people wanna go to division where they can have a shot at winning. A lot of people jump ship in our division is really small now. I have seen online. Some people confused about that but because it's so small people that are not in the world are like. Oh that's all that's all you be was one or two teams or whatever we always have the goal of going and getting the highest score there that way. If people ask we can say well we had the highest score. We beat every team. They're really that just validate says even more because the division has gotten so small. That's our goal and when we go out there and put out the best routine that we can and just get the highest score that we can the second clarifying question is. There's been news after the show aired that. NCA hasn't been so pleased with Netflix. Following this show Joe or just the publicity. Is there any update on that part. Yeah I mean I I went to La last week and we were working twelve hours a day. So I didn't really have time to get on social media much but as soon as we got down I got on the the van to go back to the airport and my phone had just Bologne up. People texted me my social media. People tagging tagging me a new store like actual actual news stories and the college was calling because we had news reporter showing up to the college about this big story that was breaking about how they had changed the roles and we can no longer do the show and compete. We'd be disqualified and none of that's true at all I have a great relationship with NCA in Varsity. They've always been very supportive. Supportive of me and what happened with that kind of news that Kinda got crazy. They had updated a rule in their stunts. Just some wording just verbiage and so anytime anytime they update anything they put the date that it's updated so they put up dated January. Whatever the day was when I guess someone decided to go and actually look at the rules roles you know because most people don't dig down deep until that really boring part of the rules but always read them all? So there is a clause in there that talks about documentaries and filming and and stuff like that printed that off last year gave it to the producer. Already knew that clause in there and it didn't say anything that we couldn't it just it's really more so about about you. Know they don't want something protrayed as reality. Yeah they say guidelines you know it just. It's not true at all. I have a great relationship with Varsity versity a great relationship with NCAA. They would contact me if they had a problem with things. Any updates on what the kids profiles are doing out they show 'cause I know we kind of caught Jerry in the hallway and the plan was to go to Louisville. Is that still the Navarro. He went to Louisville in the fall. And that what's his dream school. But when he got there I think he just didn't feel like that was really where he was supposed to be and so he had reached back out to me a few months ago and just said Hey. I really feel like that that I'm supposed to be back at Navarro and of course there's always a place for Jerry to be back at Navarro. Morgan came back for a third year. She actually graduated but she's doing like a dual partnership program with the university that we have a partnership with and Lexi Lexi. You know she got kicked off and the charges against her were dismissed but she did go to another school in the fall. Because I told you can't come back. she was cheering there and she also did not feel like that it. Was You know where she was supposed has to be. She finished school that semester but she quit cheering in the middle and her coach and her mother and grandmother all of course wanted her back Aveiro zero when they reached back out to me about giving her a second chance. I said you know. I feel like she's had enough time to reflect on it. Learn from it. I mean do people taking chances. So she's back and she's just just really doing incredible. I think this show was so good for her. Just to fill the love and support and just to build her company her story just breaks your heart when yes but she's doing great. I have a clarifying cautious. You before coaching was your level of cheering at the same level as these kids. Oh no I mean keep in mind. I'm old so what happened over. The years is people started putting their kids in all star. Cheer from like the age of birth or three years old and and so these kids became really Ali. Talented incredible growing up and being trained in the whole world of cheerleading. Changed tremendously since you know. I was in school until now and it's continues to just push the limits cheerleading. Just in general is a way different because it's a lot harder. Yeah people my age did not have those kinds of opportunities you you know. This podcast has a career podcast. We talk about people as managers. We talk about people when work. It's tough how they overcome challenges and what's so fascinating about the show and reading more and more about you. You have any job. You are very clearly a really strong. COO CEO why say that is because it's very clear that you you break down the information in a quantitative way you'd constantly in the show talk about cheering smart and really looking at from a numbers perspective and you also are very clear with your expectations. And you're tough I wanNA understand what's made you stay at Navarro. Do you feel your best. When you're like the big fish in the small pond or the small fish in the bigger pond? I think the a small fish in the bigger pond because you have goals and you always want to move up to the next level reach the potential of the people around you but you know and always intended for this to be a temporary temporary steppingstone. I mean at the time. I just didn't like the job I was in and I grew up in course of Canada. So okay I'll just we'll go back home so you know it was a good job. Aw because I had summers off could be a mother of course Canada's a little bit smaller towns so there's not as many opportunities but I still felt like I was gonNA move move even to that finance filled at some point. That was always my goal and every time I would think about it it was just hard. I felt like I created this program. It was my baby and given it up with going to be hard and the attachment to the kids. The longer I was there I just felt like I said I just felt it was God's plan that I was there there's many years I've thought should i. Should I think about next year you know move into different career moving and I just never did a lot of people that are listening into this and a lot of people are audience. Think about the decision of do I go to Grad School get an MBA knowing that they might not know what they want to do with it how do you think about your decision to get an MBA. Now I'm very happy about that decision. I mean I wanted to teach them classes at the college. I needed to have my masters to do that number one. Do you teach classes says outside of I did. I've taught Algebra for a long time. I just stopped doing that. I says yet another way that shows that we have a different skill. Set My life's too easy at all but I did it for a long time like probably twenty years and allocation too. So I would I even consider going back and get my doctorate degree but I just the time factor of it was just too much. I'm very happy about getting my MBA. and not tell these all the time you know before you have too many responsibilities go and finish school because you may not need it. You don't have to have a degree to be successful. There are plenty of people. Oh that do incredible things that don't have a degree. But what if that one job you want is the minimum requirements the degree. It's always harder to go back. And because because obviously so many doors are opening to you and to the students and I think some of those opportunities I assume would require them to maybe not finish tomorrow. What advice vice would you give them? I think this kind of opportunity is only comes around once in a lifetime. I mean this is a very rare opportunity to have this kind of exposure and in this situation I would tell them you have to take the opportunity you know I mean I would love for them finish school but there are ways especially Ashley This Day and age that I didn't have which you know you could take an online class here there. I mean you could take a couple and still manage all sorts of opportunities so I don't think that they need to miss any opportunity. This could be lock changing for them and take them into a career that they didn't even know would you know would be an option for them and of course their the future is one of my top

Netflix's 'Cheer' invites you to unlearn what you think you know about cheerleading
"I'm late on this one but many many people have said. Hey you've got to watch the show Cheer on Netflix. Amy lunchbox watched it. And it just wasn't for me. I don't WanNA cheerleading show. And it was up in the corner of the screen we times Netflix. Continue to watch it but the girl. I'm getting the greatest show and I was like all right. I'll watch it with the antenna going. It wasn't for me that way to hear about it anymore. I think it's my favorite show ever so good. Good down the the the whole to like. I know instagram like following all of them. It's so good and it's it's less like a reality show and more like a documentary. It's a little a bit reality a little bit but it's so much a like a Docu series. My favorite thing is because they are high level junior college cheerleaders. And what it's doing is watching them go from you know weeks out until the Daytona which is where they have their chilling championship and you kind of following. If they'll make it who makes the squad and again not so much about cheerleading. As it is following the characters involved but it's super high intensity like tumbling and flipping and so like a lot autumn. My friends that were cheerleaders and like ninth grade. I totally relate pictures of them up in their cheerleading uniform. It's like the same thing. It's not forbid six bits dollar our holiday. It's like hard core hard core. Now it's like a athleticism at its finest. It is a great show. It's a Ninety four percent positive tomato with critics ninety six on audience score and again. I didn't expect it and that was only watching it to say I didn't watch one episode and I was just GonNa Watch one and and and tell me yeah but I watched one. Oh I gotta see what happened in the second one after the second one I was I was in. It's only six episodes. They're an hour reach Navarro Texas and so it's according to Camp But Yeah No. It's it's it's really good. That's I mean I tried to make Daytona. I cried on average because I don't think I cried every episode but on average I cried one episode Thorson episode two times. I don't want to do any spoilers whatsoever. Because I didn't want to be spoiling it for me but there are times where I was like just completely moved a Monica the coach. Oh my gosh. She's an awesome right. Come like school us right now. She grew up in that small town. It wasn't like someone so I would encourage you to check it out it's on net flicks. I did not want to like it so I'm not sending over to a show that I was like I told you I'm kind of late to it. As far as I feel like I should be watching stuff early. Recommended the folks But it's really good. It's called cheer on Netflix. You're still talking a lot of people that haven't seen it. I mean aiming I said and we spilling the tee off like. WHO's your favorite? Oh yeah what do they do. You want to be friends with dairy. who my favorite was Morgan? Yeah well yeah cool can back stories or what gets me because she you know oh she had family that left her just left and she lived in a trailer. I thought of you into trailer by yourself the Camper Camper. Yeah but I was like Van. I totally I totally get that. It's good a lot of them. Have Great Stories Darius. Yeah they're all. Yeah it's and it a two helps you remember to look like I would look at a cheer team like me like. Oh my gosh look how super towns and look at them and their cheerleaders and they have this but everybody has something I'm going on. You don't know where people have come from or what they're trying to overcome in 'cause like each character. Yeah why because chillier is seen as like the happy the peppy the Whoo I could do a bit but there was an truly help. Change their life like some of them were on the course of destruction and they were given some structure and something to that'd be passionate about film. I mean just like any sport can do for people but this happened cheerleading. So don't think it's a show about cheerleader. It's much more than you're leading his part of it. Yeah about humans. Their back story overcoming working and my husband. Did you watch it Morgan. Yeah I'm on the third episode right now. Are you obsessed with it. Yes but I used to be a competitive cheerleader so competitive oh like I was on three different competitive teams. I started cheering when I was like six years told my mom started a competitive team. Okay so this is like you. Yes baskets everything. I was like When I was really young and in kindergarten pardon heard one of the teams that she helped run? Would like throw me in the air because I was so little and I would do baskets and stuff when I was so young. Wow Morgan's number. twos like cheer. She's also a really good athlete. Possibly the Best Adelaide on the show I pound for pound maybe the best athletes on the show. She's a lot she's five foot tall right and I think if we're fighting I'M GONNA win because I'm bigger but I think she's possibly the best athletes on the show. That's tough for me to say BR bride Here because I considered myself to be athletic but I'll get no credit. No credit and I was in cheerleader to maybe so you my senior year of High School Rau- Rodman like I couldn't even do it. Texas tea did you. I think of going to college. Oh Yeah I teared in high school I mean. I did all the steps of cheerleading. And I could probably still do some of my backflips and stuff. I really want to do. So Oh wow. It's the gymnastics cheerleading. This show it's not the cheerleaders you rarely see them. Go out and do cheers in the background. You'll see them do that. It's it's not a stunt guy. Basically gymnastic yeah gymnastics part of cheer wit stunts which stunts is where the stuff that gets really hard and tricky. Like I probably had two or three concussions concussions. When I was doing stunts and stuff that's wild? This is crazy like five concussions in the NFL you get if you can cut into your. You're done like you're GonNa be messed up your whole life so nervous like every time they would go into a new formation and went to like live like build the pyramid off his always like gripping at a UH. I don't know who's your favorite character. Jerry Jerry I wanted I need to channel more Jerry in my life. Because he's just so positive. Gosh he has like he had a rough like lost his mom and into lose your mom. It's such a young age and formative years and gosh she just still stayed so positive. Well we'll leave it with that for now but that show cheer is to me was way more than cheerleading. Because I don't that's not my thing to get interested in it's a really great. Docu knock you series a little bit of reality show. Mostly Docu series. What makes it a little bit of reality? Shows the camera watching them talk about stuff other than that. It's it's pretty
Ronny Chieng On 'Asian Comedian Destroys America!'
"Running Chang has a Netflix comedy special Asian comedian destroys America launches globally on Netflix next week what you hold forth about coming to America being amazed that god can occasionally a Paul all at the same time so much contents only got so much content on demand so many screens the most screens per capita in the world every night in America is like a competition to see how many screens we can get between all face on the wall it's like iPhone iPad laptop TV in an apple watch Ronnie Chang the daily show correspondent coaster of crazy rich Asians and former Australian law school student joins us from our studios in New York thanks so much for being with us thanks for having me you were born Malaysia raised in New Hampshire in Singapore wound up in Australia yes how did a law school student become so funny I don't know I wish I knew if I got it I don't I'm still trying to figure out if I am funny that's what the special you are yes thanks so much yeah went to Austria for law school and I couldn't get a job and I started doing stand up comedy and I was getting more work from CENTCOM data was through law and I just kept doing comedy and then ten years later just jammed in them chaos studios in New York I'm wondering if you were often the new kid in class for the new kid you know immigrant kid from outside the country where everywhere yeah I certainly felt that way I first started going to school in America in Manchester New Hampshire then we moved back we will good immigrants we moved back to Malaysia we don't take jobs we went back to where we came from and then I went to school in Singapore and I changed schools once in primary school that went to secondary school they went to junior college and I went to university in Australia so yeah I did feel kinda like the virtual new kid outsider well I mean that'll terminations humor sometimes I guess so yeah I mean this in my head I don't imagine it may be any fun yeah but it definitely made me more do things more objectively you know and that that's part of what I enjoyed so much about your your special here there's a moment you deliver line which sets off a shriek in the audience okay I'm not going to give it away let's just say you you managed to put isis in a punch line I'm not gonna put it on via yes the special yeah did you hesitate no no hesitation no hesitation for many reasons I mean first of all that's not the first time I did that joke I practiced this special quite a bit I toward around the country before I taped it so you know I think great comedy should be edgy is she should push the line pushed a boundary well a and that's when it because you gave an interesting interview to The New Yorker to we talked about how you do your research that's the one you love people don't five so I'm told you say there's a lot of stuff that you try thank you probably shouldn't say publicly frankly if you do comedy professionally that's just the way your brain works yeah yeah that's the case for me anyway I think you know as a professional stand up comedian I'm trying to think of jokes all the time a cut tried to give jokes about anything I read anything you tell me I'm I know express the joke but in my head I'm like oh is this how how would I make a joke about this and especially if you told me you should never joke about these topics in my head I might well I'm already try to figure out that you know because it's like a challenge to me it's like a puzzle to be solved that hit miss process sometime absolutely this art form and sometimes you get wrong a lot of time you get wrong probably but as a stout comic I believe you can talk about any topic but if you're gonna if you're gonna pull the dragon then you better be spot on with what you're saying I think

three wedding ceremonies what was she trying to change your mind and you were giving their the chairman or in Spanish but not always it's more that when your families are spread out across the globe

Dr. Aldon D. Morris Discuss History of Sociology Pertaining to Black America
"John Leo Hinton Junior and welcome to another edition up in black miracle on news leaks program Doctor Alden. Moore's professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Northwestern University and president elect of the American Sociological Issue Logical Association in Black America. Many of the early white sociologists were actually quite racist and they preached that that in in many ways that black people were inferior and therefore they deserve to be at the bottom of the society because of their meager talents and intellect. So they did not pay much attention to the horrific Jim Crow period period of slavery. And so on. And so what that means is that the factors like oppression and Discrimination and Terence fourth and not bigger into their now about why black people face so much why they were and why they were at the bottom of society and And and this might be interesting you but the first to sociology books were actually written all race actually written by two I believe they were white. Mississippi and established in one thousand nine hundred. Five small group led by Lester. Ward William Grand something to Franklin Jennings and Albion small at a meeting any of the American Economic Association. The American Sociological Association held his first meeting the following year in Providence Rhode Island the membership in in one thousand nine hundred sixty two at one hundred fifteen for the first several decades the activities of the society or sending on publishing a journal holding an annual annual meeting and performing various administrative functions. Such as record keeping sending out communications and so forth and forty nine the first executive executive officer was appointed on a part time basis and in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. The Association established permanent headquarters in Washington. DC since the organization was founded. There has only been three African American presidents PRYATTA. More selection. Dr Al and Moore's will be the one hundred twelfth president of the American Sociological Association. He was served one year as president-elect and then become president of the Association in August Twenty Twenty he has taught at northwestern university. Since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight I was born and raised and Wyler Mississippi. Then I left and when I was twelve thirteen years old to and moved to Chicago and has lived in Chicago most of my life. I'm currently in in Chicago. Oh went to school and Peoria Illinois then I don't Long Island New York first job with the University of Michigan which has stayed about eight years and then I moved to North Western University. And I've been there ever since came to North Western in nineteen eighty eight idea about your childhood. Oh my childhood well. I was born in Jim Crow Mississippi. And I remember that I was just a boy I was six years old. When Emmett till was lynched He was lynched only about twenty miles. From where we we live. live with my grandparents and it had a tremendous impact on me and my generation. Some of us now refer to it as the Emmett till generation and I I remember going to the Colored School Having to sit on the back of buses Drink from Colored Water Fountains and do be be insulted and all kinds of ways especially my grandparents Were very strong people and I as a boy. I didn't understand why they were being called a boy aunt. And all of this kind of stuff so I experienced Jim Crow Racism in the heart of the South and Rural Mississippi. And then of course we were my mother and her siblings. Almost all of them have been part of the great migration and so they always lived in Chicago. Saint Louis and Milwaukee Detroit other places and so I as a little boy. I thought that The North was really really the promised land that they were really gold streets and milk and honey and all of that and so I also knew that I was going to come to Chicago once my elderly grandparents. It's passed and when they did. I was shocked with a double dose of new racism the the northern version. And so I you know I went to finished elementary school in Chicago. A went to community college and Chicago worked in factories in Chicago and And experienced a great deal love Racism and so on and Chicago of course This was the early seventy they sixties. The civil rights movement was still going on on the black power movement in particular was raging and so Also would assist that. They're the change could happen because I wouldn't have those movements and when I saw on television what was happening in the civil rights movement and all I. I grew up with a lot of hope. I thought we were going to change this thing. I had no idea that we would be where we are here. In the twenty thirty first century now you grew up in Chicago doing the radio station. WBO winds high days and allies Mohammed. And Jesse Jackson Operation Pushing Russian mayor. Daley tell us about that experience. It was a very A very rich rich experience by the time I was in Chicago. UGH Oh well I. I witnessed these a lot of the civil rights movement. The march on Washington and The Birmingham confrontation on television. 'cause I was in Chicago. Oh I was deeply influenced by Martin Luther King Junior and And then of course here in Chicago Jesse Jackson was his protege and so ooh I participated in protests and marches and so on that involved him and many many others Chicago was a very very Rich kind of Environment Like now it has some of the best and the worst tendencies of America and I went to a predominantly Lee White High School Where we were not as like people like students we were not considered to be smart? We were not considered to be college materials and so we weren't prepared appeared to they. They did not teach us to be those things and But yes I mean on on. You could drive down one street and park in front of me. Elijah Muhammad's house and you can go on a little bit east and you'll be at Jesse Jackson's headquarters and and so you know operation breadbasket is getting all of that. I do vaguely remember when Dr King about the Movement to Chicago in nineteen sixty six and there were marches for fair a housing and there was some of the most racist outpouring that the nation has ever seen When in one of those margins Dr King was hit upside the head with a brick and he said Ed that you know? I've been in Birmingham and I've been Montgomery. I've been in Mississippi but I've never seen the kind of racism that I'm experiencing here in Chicago so it was a mixed bag growing up here. I mean on the one hand. It was a vibrant strong rich black community. You know we had ebony and jet and all of the Black businesses the one that we had so many movements going on and and leaders both young and old. I was in community college when Fred Hampton and Mark Clark where fascinated they were black panthers and And that was the first time I saw Jesse Jackson in person. He came to my community college. I'll southeast junior colleges. In the end he spoke to us and And and I was like wow man. This is one of the most powerful individualism was ever heard so I remain active on movements but also You know Had never no one in my immediate family. That never gone to college so I didn't have any plans to go to college and And then the Vietnam war start raging and and I was working in Spiegel's warehouse and And I knew I didn't want to go to Vietnam and I ended up going to a community. Unity College us. Because then you could get for with the ferment. Kept you out of the service for a little while so so I did that and that was. That was the very beginning. Some of my college experience I in fact With somewhat afraid to go to community college because you know Com being a first generation student. I thought that everybody was going to be so much smarter than me. And then I was GonNa say things get laughed at it and all of that but I I went on. There was still more appealing. Attractive to meet and go into Vietnam and so I went. I went to a community college and I started reading. Do Boards and Margaret Walker and David Walker Peel. And all that kind of

"Following Louisville's disappointing effort today at Charlottesville. I think Paul and Alex provided the commentary throughout the game for you. Just never stepped up to the fight and ends up losing Virginia by final count of twenty seven to three after having Lamar Jackson on the team for three years cardinal fan. Certainly got used to having one man sort of changed the core for the game. But today changing the course was Virginia's quarterback Bryce Perkins. Who is Paul told you in the pre game was a junior college transfer where the game just three points differential Virginia leading six to three in the second half. Burqas broke up broke off a thirty six yard run that set up a short touchdown pass to Chris sharp. And then he threw a forty four yard touchdown pass to Joe read later Perkins himself scored from eight yards out those three touchdowns made. It looked pretty bad at the finish Virginia wins at twenty seven to three. You heard the comments coach, Bobby Patrizio? And I think it's. A fair question to say as he lost his team. They're not playing well not playing with fire as Alex covered on numerous occasions throughout the game. And with eight games to go. The question is going to get better for the cardinals or not neither quarterback has been able to get the fire going for this offensive team. It's not a case of coming in just out ethylene the other team as Maliki was able to do against both Indiana state and western Kentucky. They couldn't do that today against Virginia and only gets tougher against the talented. Yes. A troubled Florida state team, but a talented Florida state team as well next week.

"Is weak to it is the second half of the home at home. And it's a chance for the who's to continue their redemption tour. It is time the scouts to the Indiana hoosiers. Are you Virginia tonight with a much younger looking team than a year ago following a thirty eight twenty eight win by the hoosiers over I in their opener at goodstuff Allen was eager to make mention on that youth getting out onto the field that we had seventeen total racial freshman. True freshman, and they nine was the number of true freshman that that played a large number of guys to get involved in a game at one time. But that's what we expected and have no net for a while that we have a lot of new faces and those guys chance to to experience college football for the first time, and it was good. So. Just got to keep growing and keep learning tons of look into what the Indiana defensive approach could look like this evening. Those years likely to spy Keppler quarterback Bryce Perkins for a good deal of tonight's action. Once again here as you head coach, Tom Allen. They've added a new dimension offensively with the junior college quarterback. That was very gifted athlete that can beat you with his legs and his arm that was obvious in week one Bryce Perkins. And so he's got our attention in last year's affair between the two teams. Indiana surprised Virginia by switching its quarterback situation. The Cavs went in expecting a heavy dose of Richard lay out only to see Peyton Ramsey. Take over the reins under center and rush twenty six yard touchdown and throw for a pair of TD's as well. UVA head coach recommended hall reflects on that adjustment from last year's contest the quarterback that came in after we played well against the starter. If you remember a year ago, they threw the ball so well against Ohio State the opener, and then we offended that really well they came in with the different quarterback or running quarter. Her back. So he is their quarterback this year. They're more clear on their identity because they don't have two different types of players there. Another factor to pay attention to for you is there depth that receiver much like what Virginia dealt with in week one against Richmond. It'll be a similar look the who's receiving corps led by Donovan HALE posted a touchdown against Virginia in twenty seventeen and caught two touchdown passes in Indiana's.
