Harley-Davidson Tries to Find Its Way--Again

"Years the harley davidson motorcycle brand has been well a little lost. Its us motorcycle. Sales have dropped about forty percent since their peak a decade ago and while the strategy in recent years was to try to appeal to a broader base of writers the company's attempts at turning things around including the recent rewire initiative and the newer. One called hard wire seem more focused on getting leaner and doubling down on the company's core customer base a few years ago harley davidson began its quest to woo younger customers. It's boomer customer. Base was aging. And let's face it. It's tougher to write a hog with a bum knee in back but younger customers aren't choosing motorcycles for their cool factor. A cnbc report says instead. They want ease of transportation so they look for more practical brands like honda. Even harleys bowl plans to get two million more riders. Taking to the road didn't seem to be working. They opened riding schools and launch the electric livewire motorcycle. You may remember telling you about that. One with its thirty thousand dollars starting cost well. None of that work then. Of course the pandemic hit last year. The company closed plants in march. It restarted manufacturing in. May but the company cut shipment to dealers by seventy percent through the end of the year according to business insider and what about customers renewed interest in outdoor recreation which spurred sales of big ticket items like boats and swimming pools last summer. Well it helped. But it didn't lift harley sales enough to overcome its losses in october new. Ceo yuck insights took out the scissors and began making cuts international production gone. So we're about a third of the models in the company's product lineup he encouraged dealerships to close and he trimmed the workforce to including product teams developing new motorcycle models. The wall street journal reports the orange and black brand is veering out of many international markets and focusing on roughly forty target areas in north america. Europe and asia. It also spun off its electric bicycle. Operations and entered into a distribution agreement with indian motorcycle. Company hero harley will be shipping fewer bikes to dealerships making supply limited that may be part of the strategy to especially as the weather gets warmer in motorcycle. Buying season begins. But we'll targeting smaller core base of customers who love big heavy hogs work in a world that increasingly wants sustainable economical and even sharable electric vehicles harley. Davidsons team may but investors don't seem sure stock prices dropped after the company's new five year strategic plan was unveiled revenue and profit targets were smaller than many expected bloomberg reports. And well. there just wasn't a lot of substance there as one analyst put. A lot of this is what we're going to do but not how we're going to do it. Plus electric motorcycles have momentum. Right now. The us jessica tended tax credits for electric motorcycles. Through the end of this year and last week. Electric motorcycle manufacturer. Zero motorcycles announced a partnership with motorcycle rental in tour company eagle writer. The deal may zero motorcycles. Part of eagle riders premium brand lineup with full-size electric motorcycles available for rent in five locations immediately. Even the name of harleys turnaround plan. Hard wire seems a little old school a wireless era but then again that may be the point harley as focused on its traditional audience will soon see whether the plan pays off where they've gotten their wires crossed

Pushback Since the NBA Announced It Would Be Holding the All-Star Game

"Since the nba announced that it would be holding the all star game this year. There's been a lot of pushback energy and zero excitement about an all star game this year.

How Fashion Can Leverage the Audio Appeal of Clubhouse

"Earlier this year. Silicon valley became obsessed with a new app called clubhouse and audio bay social network where people can spontaneously jump into different chat rooms to together launched amid the pandemic since day one. The app has attracted the kind of funding controversy and hype that's ruffled feathers and made headlines. The social audio space is booming. Investors are piling in and recently twitter revealed that it's launching. Its own take on social audio space. That's currently being dominated by clubhouse one of is super users is none other than virgil abloh. Louis vuitton men's artistic director and creative director of off. White virgil joins us at voices twenty today from chicago alongside clubhouse founder paul davidson who is in san francisco. Welcome to you both. Thank you so much. Glad to be here liquors lurk whereas going and run. Get to see you again. Virgil i'm gonna. I'm gonna start with paul. Because i think everyone in the silicon valley world has heard of clubhouse but you know there are people watching who may not yet have understood what this is. So in the first instance. I'm gonna ask you the question you know. Why do we need another social media. What is it that clubhouse offers to the world. That isn't already out there. Yeah happy but that one slight correction the clubhouse house with my friend row on Clubhouse it's a new type of social network. That's based on voice where people around the world come together to talk. Listen and learn from each other about topics ranging from fashion to retail music and sports and social justice. It's sort of like hallways of this conference anywhere where it's all on your phone. There's no video but you can. You can reconnect with people you can learn or you can just be applying the wall and i think that connection is an inherently human thing. We're wired to connect invoice is a very different medium. We've seen it grow recently because of things like airpods and smart speakers an in-car integrations of this technology. But but it's it's in some ways the oldest medium in the world right. We were talking long before we were writing or taking photos or shooting videos but in the world of social media. It's a new thing and we find that allows people to connect in a different way you have all of the fidelity and authenticity and bids an asks an emotion. But you don't have any of things zaidi of video worrying about what you look like. Or how messy your houses and so it creates a different type of experience that is more about connecting with people in and having conversations than about getting likes or follows or projecting a certain view of yourself to the world. So we think it's a pretty different experience in what's out there right now. Burs let me let me turn to you. Because as i mentioned in the intro you've become a clubhouse super user and they might conversations of the. I know you're a busy guy. We were talking michael wolff earlier today. Who says like the average person is spending thirteen hours a day on their technology devices. You know why are you carving out time and you're very busy schedule to use clubhouse what do you get out of clubhouse. That's different from what you can get elsewhere. It's one of those things where i rationalize it like this. I'm in the design community. Which basically means that. I'm a part of the uber. Small percentage of people that get to dictate web pants. You wear next year. Look like you know like. I have an opinion. I'm in a part of a collective that decides. What the in like a trend for your car or your your interior of your home. They look like you know that's to me. Take that as a huge responsibility. This is like shelving away all the things like the fun side of the job or something like that. So i think it's a part of my responsibility of my craft to be knowledgeable to know what's going on in the world like if i locked myself in my studio and i sit in a place where i think from my sort of like shielded view of the world. This is what i think. The impact the lives of others. I think that's the wrong path. So when clubhouse comes around which i believe is a is a forward thinking concept from amazing people with great hearts and good vision. Like it's a no brainer. You know. And i project that out and so my friend told me adjust carballo from heist. Nobody was early user of clubhouse and he was like. Hey this is something i know you'd be into. You should try it out. And that's how. I became a user. An i've been a fan of the operation ever since two other quick. Things said that. I might add one. That because it's audio you can multitask and so it takes advantage of a lot of found time. it's not something where you're staring at a screen and just scrolling for hours and doing nothing else. People are using it while. They're walking while they're driving while they're in bed at night while they're folding laundry while they're doing all sorts of other things and the second thing i'd say is a big goal for us is to ensure that when people spend time on clubhouse it is time well-spent where were they can spend spend time on it enclosed the app at the end of the session feeling better than they did when they opened it because they deepen friendships. They've met new people they've learnt. It's a participatory different experience than than sort of scrolling screen purely consuming got it so virgil let me take it back to you for a minute. Your as you said your top designer in the industry now you can dictate what pants or as we'd call trousers in. Hey what you'd wear. Trousers wear next season. But what do you think. Fashion brand louis. Re tong could use or learn from clubhouse. How could fashion brands make use of this tool. They've found different ways to use instagram other other social media apps. But you know what could a fashion brand us clubhouse for you know. This is just something that i was just like reflecting on an essence. Obviously there's this in the fashion industry. There's hyper sort of like attention. Paid towards digital space. You know e commerce web impressions content photos videos data when at the end of the day. You know it's an extreme metric and tool to engage. And i think with the with the advent of clubhouse sort of refocusing on audio. It's it's an interesting case. Study and seeing like making sure that brands have something to say. You know you when you can't escape to creating an image that looks like fashion so then people consume it as fashion or a video. That looks glossy looks like moving. Image of fashion ambience. Like i for one. Think it's a like a new landscape to hear what brand about you know without the use of image or without that the the adjacency to say a product within that image. Like what do you have to say. And that becomes compelling as a fashion industry when we can use our voice to create engagement. Yeah that's that's really interesting because of course it's like second nature for the fashion industry to communicate through imagery. But how does how does a fashion company communicate through sound. I don't know paul if you have anything to add their think it's such an interesting contrast when you're talking about the fashion industry right. I mean extensively. Fashion is visual. It is curated. this is literally the opposite. You can't fake. You can't have a social media manager post the clubhouse right you're talking and the community aspect is a really big part of it. Because it's so participatory in your calling people from the audience here engaging with the people that care about your brand you have people in the industry sourcing creatives for shoots and and and talking about trends in what's happening in the news it's just a. It's a very different experience. So i love the fact that virgil has it enjoyed using the product because on its surface that contrast is just so fascinating to me like the division curated versus the the raw and intimate. Yeah all all the conversations that i have hosted or been part of on clubhouse related to fashion imron in a weird way. Have been more in depth than than interviews or sort of regular format sort of media. You know because the audience is getting to hear what they can't see on instagram too. Many characters to type. Obviously none of us are person like me. I'm not media trained to be able to like sound by. Have my ideas go through instagram. So that people exactly get the nuance and a medium like like clubhouse is where as a designer i can talk about the inspiration that i only usually talk about press

Are Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox engaged?

"We're going to start out with snl. Which as i'm sure you guys know. John krasinski hosted. I'm sure you saw at the end of his opening monologue at him and pete davidson kissed and it was great. He was excellent. Big john krasinski fan by for me. At least probably the most noteworthy element of snl was machine gun. Kelly was performing. And i'm sure by now you've all seen the viral video of him carrying megan fox into the thirty rock building. Julie i live for that shit. There is no amount of machine gun. Kelly's back fox content. That will ever be too much for me. I will never ever ever get sick of it. I know i think it's because like i bet you. Some people watch that and as with. They weren't wearing masks. Which i know is frequently discussed but some people watch that and felt like all my god. They're so attention seeking. And i get that clearly but also that's what i sometimes want for my celebrities making public appearances especially those to rate and especially right now like right now. Life is so monotonous. That if i'm gonna watch machine gun. Kelly carry meghan vox. When she's wearing this snakeskin alfred into the thirty rock building. I love that as a highlight in my day. I love when you get a little vocabulary. Heavy on this podcast. What i say monotonous embarrassing. Don't go a rosette on this other confidently don't exalt me no i just. I'm a fan of big vocabulary. Where can i spray. Oh thank you. Yeah just i just obsessed. I am too. And i can't believe that it's only a recent thing like it's one of those couples where i feel like i've spent my whole life obsessing over them will. It's interesting because there's a lot of rumors swirling about engagement. I know a lot of people think that will happen sooner rather than later. I don't know. I honestly don't really have a gut feeling on it. Because on one hand. I know they both said they think they're twin flames especially her. She's very into astrology and kind of spirituality. And she's sure he's her person. But i don't know maybe you'll wanna wait a little bit. More time after the divorces passed. I don't really know but either way into it

US job market weakens in December, fuelling hopes of more stimulus

"With political implications. That are as we speak. Still tb but with implications for this economy that you can kind of see the outlines of even now here to make sense of it. All our k- davidson. She is from the wall street journal neil. Richardson is the chief. economist ed. Adp hey you too. Neil let me start with a quick pass at this morning's jobs numbers because it is jobs day friday at the end of this kind of amazing week. We lost one hundred and forty thousand jobs last month. My question to you is more of a statement. Actually and it goes like this. Uh oh i guess. I l. indeed but it's not totally unexpected. We knew that the code cases were rising. They were rising december with that. Bryce states and municipalities have had to roll back or tighten restrictions on social gathering that has a direct effect on the job market so this trend of slowing the momentum in jobs recovered each month as cova cases rise continued in december. The hope is that when we have a population that is inoculated. Maybe later this year second half of the year. We'll see those job gains. Come back in the meantime it's still going to be a pretty rough winter For those people who are out of work and also cleared. I was touching with a friend of mine this morning. Who works in finance and he said you know. I think by fall or winter of this year which is to say. Twenty twenty one. We're gonna be rolling right along. And i texted him back and i said look man. We are as far from winter this coming year as we are from the beginning of this thing. Think about all the damage that can That is still yet to come in this economy. What do you think. yeah. I mean. I think that's what Democratic policymakers economists are warning about. And when you hear folks say it's important to have another big economic relief package for example which is something we've been hearing a lot about even though we just had this big nine hundred billion dollar. One Economists say it's important to try to get back to where we were before march as quickly as possible in other words. The longer this is drawn out the Take the harder it is to to come back. The deeper the hole the harder it is to get out of it So right it would be. It would be amazing if vaccines were rolled out quickly which may be an early december. We were all so excited. We thought they would be in our seeing. Gee it's not. It's not so easy. And and people are maybe a little more pessimistic. So that just means it's gonna take longer for people to be back in full force at restaurants or movie theaters or on cruise ships or airplanes and And it might. It might feel like a longtime time before at that place. So nila lemme ask you now about the news of tuesday. The democrats win georgia. They now control the senate and there had been much speculation that they were going to be able to do something more in relief. Maybe even those two thousand dollar checks the president trump and and others had been calling for and then joe manchin a democrat or west. Virginia came out today and said. I'm not sure i'm on board for two thousand dollars and everybody kind of realized that it's a much thinner majority than maybe the actual numbers would imply i think on this front. I make two points at first of all i. I firmly believe that the economy is going to lead politics. Some this issue if we continue to see job losses like we saw in december There may not be a lot of wiggle room of how the government responds. I if they want to make sure that the economy can pull through this. Secondly i think what would it. Also indicates is yes there is the may be some some dissension even along party lines. And so what it means. Is that big reforms which typically occur when there is a single party leadership might be delayed even further in this presidency. Because it's covid right. Now that's taking charge of covid. That has a seat at the table. And so that's going to have to play out a before we can get to those bigger reforms that i'm sure by the would like to tackle his term. That's a really good line. The economy is gonna lead policy Speaking of economic policy. Kate president-elect biden came out in a statement today or in a in a speech to reporters talking about a bunch of economic stuff. He said we should be investing in deficit spending which is remarkable thing for a politician to say out loud. It's a huge Reversal or shift if you will from when president obama came in Last financial crisis democrats were were leaning into this idea that republicans were pushing that in. I think continue to push that. We need to be worried about about deficits right. I mean we obviously want to support the economy and In support people and households. But we can't go too far. And i think that there's been it. There's been a big shift among Economists and economic thinking on this in ten or twelve years since then and that's look at interest rates. They are so low right now. In biden made this point that when interest rates historically low and the federal reserve you know they've got rates as low as they can go or as low as they are willing to go. They said they aren't gonna do negative rates They could do more bond buying but there's not a lot they can do Then you should be spending more even if that is deficit spending And that's the argument that we heard The president-elect today and it's interesting because we know that his economic team the advisors. He's been turning to for advice last year. They were making that same argument. They're saying look at the cost of finance. This debt is so low it it. It makes sense to invest now because those investments will pay off over the long term. If if they boost growth roy All right i'm gonna try to squeeze last one in and i'm going to try to get both here in about thirty seconds apiece if you could we've i want. You can't leave the segment today without the politics of this economy coming up and we talk a lot about uncertainty in this economy and what that has meant the last four years. I wonder neela what you think about instability in the politics of this economy because that seems to me to be where we are i think the biggest danger as we look at the economic fragility of that we're grappling with in the winter months. Is that we keep. We take our eye off the ball of the economy and the people who've been hit hardest in the economy. It's easy to give way to the politics of the moment. That still about ten million americans who were working in february who are not working now and we have rental moratoriums that actually end in january and so the danger is that we give way to the politics. We stop thinking about the economy. So meyer urgency on this. Friday is to remember. It's about the economy right now. And the health infrastructure that is necessary for to keep the economic recovery going to quickly uncertainty verses instability. Well i just. I think so much is going to depend on. What happens after january twentieth. And whether you still have president trump out there sort of riling rolling up his base And how the the congress and how republicans interact with the with the incoming administration the incoming president and we have reason to think that things might go okay mitch. Mcconnell has a longstanding relationship with joe biden and they've worked together for for many many years but to to as point earlier. I think that what happens with the economy is going to be driving these these discussions. Hopefully hopefully if things get worse or things stay. Stay as they are. They'll they'll come together though overcome These issues and get something done if the economy is it who davidson at the wall. Street journal

"Unlearn itself okay. Now getting to my good. I don't have to look at myself. That's gonna hello. Hello everyone many of you. There are many of you. Don't know me and you're probably wondering why. I'm doing this talk tonight. One of four priests studying dharma was norman. He has asked us to do. These talks. this month's on any subject we choose so here. I am starting off. I have over the years. I've been reading books often on by ties and dish morrow. I don't know if any of you know what he who years and have appreciated so much as director way Cutting to the chase in his teachings and books of which there are many the most recent of which is lucia tokyo mind. The heart of the heart sutra muccio. Taku meaning the mind that does not seek prophet or game so a little background on him. He was the founder of the association of zen international in fronts which has had a large influence on ditton zen in the west particularly in france where he established a practice senator large enron year in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. He was born in one thousand nine hundred fourteen into Samurai family on kyw issue island in southern japan race by his mother and follow. Who is a follower of the name but sue buddhist sect. He was educated in christianity and western philosophy. He studied rinse is on before finding his teacher. Kodo sake i'm just trying to fool around with my thing might thing here. And he started with sabaki and the practice of yoga and zen before his death suwalki asked de she morrow to spread zen in the west which he did and established but he preferred to be in europe. Because i think suzuki row she had already started here in this country at that time. So he asked does she marrow to spread zen in the west which he did. And which is still functioning. Actually i looked it up and found. They have Cancel all their activities because of covid but it looks like a very large place they are. In france he died in nineteen eighty. Two leaving a number of disciples there and actually has disciples in somewhere in the southern part of this country. So mo- moosh o toko mind means an attitude of no profit and no gain in this practice it is the core of gushing montereau seine. He describes his first meeting with his teacher kodo so walkie as a shattering experience. He says the room was overflowing with books sutras and other works yet when he asked him if he could borrow some he was told that such stuff is useless and his desire to read. Those works was childish. Childers wim myrow says that was his first sartori however back in this world. It's so human to want to get something to hang onto teachings in life with people books which often brings on the desire for more and more better and better bigger and bigger and missing the point altogether poems. Coghlan's anecdotes auto biographies. I'll do play a role in the transmission of zen from the fifth century onto the president. But these written records can always be only fingers pointing at the moon obscene.

"Don't davidson is an editor at the federal list. He's written an article in the federalist which is a good read. I always come in the federalist i think they do good work entitled five big things we learned about our elites in twenty twenty and i wanna take them one by one but john. Did you learn these thing did. Did learning these things did these people exposing themselves as they did in any way actually surprised you not at all. I think that these were things. Everyone kind of knew These were things that we could see. Contributing to trump's election in two thousand sixteen the corruption of our elites in the corruption of our institution institutions public life but we certainly got confirmation in ways And and i think that's what twenty twenty brought us. Was these really dramatic. Instances where our worst fears and suspicions about arby's were confirmed time and time again. Let's take them one by one number one. Democrats don't care about science or religious liberty. let's start with the democrats. Don't care about science. What made you come to that conclusion over and over. We've heard democratic governors and mayors saying that we have to follow the science on code and that we're going to let the scientists lead us and we're gonna make all our decisions based on science and over the month as the year unfolded as the pandemic unfolded. We saw time and again mayors and county health officials and governors making decisions really big important decisions about lockdown stay. The weren't based on the science all wasn't based on anything In fact one judge in california called out the county health officials in los angeles saying your order to your clothes. Outdoor dining isn't based on anything. There's no data. There's no science behind it at all. So democrats don't care about science. They say they do but when it actually comes down to making policy. They don't use science to justify the policies that they want to put forth democrats. You know what. I find interesting. John is the rigorous pursuit of truth. That that the scientific method gives us is is. There is truth and honesty to two plus two four. there is truth and honesty to gravity right. these are these are principles or rules. They're immutable they do not change. They will always be there before us. And after us in this idea that questioning opinions of supposed scientist or public. Health officials was somehow taboo. Was somehow dangerous. That is to me more frightening than the fact that these people don't respect science at they don't respect the inputs to coming to conclusions and we saw that on full display. Yeah that's right that's right. I i think the idea that you question the experts Like there are some Clerical class that has a lock on truth and that everything they say is like an oracle coming from. The heavens is really disturbing the the fact that that we treat Health officials and bureaucrats and elected officials as though They their orders and their rules. Come from on high is just not true. And the pandemic exposed that best example our top of mine example. You say democrats don't care about science or religious liberty. What was the case that really in your mind. Voters in americans should look at and say especially people of faith and say look what happened here. The two most high profile cases where when the supreme court struck down governor andrew. Cuomo of new york's order that churches and houses of religious worship should have different standards For opening than Other businesses and then they did the same thing with california governor gavin newsom orders it also discriminated against houses of worship those two things descried and capture sort of elites prejudice against both religious liberty and the complete disregard For science and data. th those orders weren't based on anything other than Discrimination against people if they weren't based on science a data that showed going to socially distanced church service puts you at greater risk than packing into a lowe's home depot. They were just based on the idea that we're gonna discriminaga- discriminate against religion The supreme court called him out on it both times and interestingly the media reframed that discussion to say well that ruling doesn't matter because he's rescinded the order. No no it was important to have the ruling because whether it's in effect for an hour a week a month or forever it's wrong as written not sufficiently narrowly tailored without a real public policy and science behind it. That was an important statement. And i hope that people of faith will will not forget that. I hope it will make a difference in in In georgia where democrats are going to are going to act in lockstep. Because that's what they do you have a prediction there. I think that we haven't seen any change from what we saw. In november with regard to the security and of our elections and the confidence that people can have that the laws that we have on the books. We'll be followed and that the rules that we have are counting absentee ballots for example will be followed and that the the the processes that we have in place to prevent people from voting twice or out of state residents in will be enforced. We didn't see a lot of that. in november. We saw a lot of rules being ignored and laws being broken. And unfortunately we we have to get that six because people have to have confidence in our elections. And i don't know that we're going to have much more success. This time around than we did in november in terms of people having confidence and they leave the democrats will cheat. I believe that there are not secure processes in place to ensure that that when people cheat they get caught. Do you think there are enough. High placed republicans willing to overturn an election. If in fact it is clear. Democrats cheated or willing to dig in and determine whether they cheated are. Do you think they'll do what they've already which is looked the other way and say well. Let's be gracious losers. Yeah i think the latter. I know i don't think there's enough democrats Or i should say republicans that are willing to to dig in and call for a commission and really look at this in a series way which is too bad. Because as i say you have to. People have to have confidence in in the elections. And it's possible to do that. In a credible and serious way. There are states that have mass mail in voting. That secure look at florida Florida elections nobody disputes the result of florida elections. And they know the results right way and yet. This is the state with a really diverse population two time zones millions and millions of people large population and they have large numbers of belan voting. But they do. It is secure way. So that people have confidence as other the integrity john donald davidson come back and see us..

The Boy Who Inspired Baltimore

"With twenty twenty now officially in the books we're taking one last look back at the year in sports and replaying our very favorite episode of twenty twenty. It's about baltimore's most unforgettable young sports fan mugabe who passed away from cancer. The athletics brit girly spoke with us about mos- brief incredible life and a moment after his death that she'll never forget from wondering on the athletic. I'm kavita davidson. And i'm under scotto. This is the lead so britt tell us about the earliest days of mugabe's life mokaba first few months of his life which state regular newborn infant and around about nine months. His mother sasi saw photo of him. In which is is just white she went and got him checked out and it turned out that he had cancer anywhere so he had it in the back he was a kid who spent seventy five percent of his young life in the hospital constantly getting aggressive chemotherapy or a life of sickness and never got better. How did mow become such a big sports fan. It came from his mother sans e who made no bones about it. I'll be back forth lethem level. When did move. I come onto the radar of baltimore. Sports fans around the age of nine mo- decided that he was going to call in to this afternoon. Show five seven. Jeremy khan and scott carr so or the two anchors and they get a call from a nine year old kid and jeremy's berry aware that sometimes kids are shy or they don't know what to say i mean he had his confidence his swagger about that i thought was so cool when he would call in and then it just months and loved the ravens at orioles so much it just really really shown through. Thank you walk. Can we get picking booking shot. Pick right there. What's funny is santi was working during the day. She had no idea for months. That son was becoming this fixture on this afternoon drive show in baltimore working with the school that work now.

Cool man and it was all of the jones different things you started getting his own theme music. really funny and engaging kid once you get a chance even the most hardin cremona callers were like. Yeah i love bow and no one knew. He was sick for a very long time and it wasn't until the promotions director was like mugabe. I've seen that kid a cancer events for their sister station. Jeremy wasn't even sure they were talking about the same kid. He saw video of mo and he realized that voice. That voice was coming out of this little boy in a wheelchair who conveyed nothing of the pain and thorough medical procedures that he had already been through never had anything negative to say about anyone. He never talked about any issue with body nation. Change us old. You're already in trouble. Nationwide think so. I'm not the. I'm not kidding. And his legend grew within the community.

Where Is The Joe Paterno Statue?

"For years now the whereabouts of an iconic joe paterno statue have been unknown and today as part of our. Look back at twenty twenty. We're replaying an episode about the statue that first aired back in june. The athletics audrey snyder spoke with me. About why penn state has gone to such great lengths to conceal the statues location and which she discovered in her own quest to find it from wondering athletic. I'm could beat the davidson and this is the lead so audrey. it's been almost ten years since. Joe paterno at penn state. What is the state of their football program. Today penn state right now is consistently tap. Fifteen program tackles still on his feet. Smoke with a straight on touchdown. This is a team. That's been the new year's six games in three of the past four years. This is a team. That's at a high level of benefit prospects and it's almost easy to forget where this program was just because of how quickly it's it's found itself on the rebound so the reason we're here today. The joe paterno statue which became a huge source of contention in the aftermath of the jerry. Sandusky scandal can you describe in back in those days the providence of the turner statue on campus. It was a really big deal. There was one stop many fans had to make before they went into beaver stadium to watch the game. Whenever we come to penn state. We never failed to stop by and have our picture taken here. Embodies a man. It is the bronze statue of joe. Paterno who's a seven foot nine hundred pound bronze statue. There were thousands upon thousands of graduation photos of kids in caps and gowns underneath. Joe paterno as he has his barons pointer finger extended in the air and it was just such a landmark and walk us through what it was like when the statue came down with authorities are on site this morning at penn state prepping to bring down joe paterno statue. Employees have begun to place fencing around the statue and a tarp state college and university. Police are on the scene right. Your i've learned morning defense up around statue about thirty police. Officers walk out of beaver stadium surround. The statue was done like a surprise by six o'clock in the morning on a sunday people were already wondering what happened to this statue and where it went and for so many fans. The removal of the statue made it look like joe paterno was guilty and so many people who are looking at this story a locally they see a statue coming down and they say well clearly this isn't mission of joe paterno skills and that honestly that's something in the court of public opinion that's continued to play out but turnover reported to people will counteract that and say well. He didn't do enough. He should've done more. He should have followed up with more statue was so symbolic of a whole era owes penn state football. That was being taken down while the litigation was still ongoing so it made it looked like one thing which of course angered a lot of fans. A lot of alumni makes me very angry There are a couple of things going on first of all. We don't know all the facts. Seems like we keep making knee jerk reactions to your say where caving to pressure because now looked like hence status jumping to conclusion based off of the free report former. Fbi director louis. Freeh puts the blame on joe paterno and three other top penn state officials for covering up jerry sandusky child-sex-abuse but you also had a chance that that because of what had happened with jerry sandusky with sensitivity with compassion for his victims. How can you keep a statue up of a head coach. Who at the time had a defensive coordinator who was sexually abusing young boys. I mean it was just so complicated and the thing in all of this was chopra. Paternal never particularly liked the statue. It shows with this bronzed finger looking like he's giving the number one pose which was like so anti turnover in that it made. It looked like he was boasting but so many people were clinging to the statute because it was their connection to joe paterno in that penn state era of football that they knew in loved. But you then wonder like. Should we ever put statues of anyone. Can you celebrate a person in only honor part of them or does a statue represents kind of this all encompassing being. And that's what makes it so risky when he decided to put a statue like this up because even when this thing came out in two thousand and one show paternal is legacy everything. It looked bulletproof so

5 charts show what the global economy looks like heading into 2021

"Our yesterday's professor fluke. She's vice president of research. And the william davidson senior fellow for economic policy at israel democracy institute. She's the former governor of the bank of israel and professor at department of economics at the hebrew university of jerusalem earlier this month Professor flog served as the co chair of the idea is l. e. horovitz conference where the most pressing issues relating to israel's economy and society where discussed professor conflict. Hello and welcome back to the tel aviv review. Good morning. so. When corona virus hit it seemed like we were heading for an economic downturn that would rival the great depression but according to the bank of israel and always estimates israeli economy in terms of gdp per capita on employment growth and other measurements seems to be bouncing back and within a few years to return more or less to the levels prior to the crisis and it seems also that this crisis if everything goes according to plan will even less devastating than the two thousand nine hundred thousand nine downturn. So where the initial estimates and overreaction altogether anything wrong. I think we're still in the middle of a very serious crisis. It's true that recently we've seen some oppo revisions both today. A growth estimates of the global economy and also for the the projections for the israeli economy. But still we're talking about a very deep recession globally. Were talking about according to the most recent projections of the cd. We're talking about a contraction of over four percent this year and hopefully a rebound of about four percent next year. This is just in comparison to the global financial crisis the global economy contracted by only zero point one percent so we're still talking about a very deep recession and that's true also for the israeli economy If we are on the path as described by damore to mystic scenario that was a published by the bank of israel it means to the economy will contract this year by about five percent. And we'll rebound by about six percent next year. If we are on the less optimistic scenario where the corrina is not contained the pandemic is not contain then we will have a somewhat more severe contraction this year but much slower recovery by next year so i would say Were still talking about two very serious crisis. A very severe recession however it's true the israeli economy is doing somewhat better relative to other economists. I

DACOR - An Original Five

"When you own a dive shop people routinely either stop by or call us to see if we're interested in buying their old scuba gear or they have equipment that they used many years ago and went to try to get back into diving and wonder if we can service it. Well that's a whole different discussion than where i wanna go today. Many times the gear that they bring in is from decor one of the original five. Us manufacturers scuba diving equipment in the united states. We've already covered two of those five here on scuba shack radio voice and health ways and i'll get to the other to swim. Master stivers down the road today. We're going to talk about decor. The davidson corporation was founded in nineteen fifty three by samuel davidson junior. Sam took the da from davidson and decio are from corporation and put them together to form decor i read somewhere online at sam patented the name and even gave the patent number three dot one two eight four eight one. Why tried to find that specific patent and couldn't find that where he patented the name but that number came up with something called a safety float that was submitted by samuel davidson junior filed in nineteen sixty. One so interesting. So how did sam davidson get interested in scuba diving. Well sam richard klein who started health ways was also in the united states marine corps during world war two he was stationed on guam and it said that he had gotten hold of some japanese goggles and started to explore underwater after the war. His interest in exploring underwater continued back then. Getting reliable. scuba equipment wasn't easy. So sam hooked up with an old neighborhood friend named bob olsen and they decided to build their own double hose regulator well somewhere along the way a buyer from montgomery ward department store chain found out about the regulator and purchase ten later. They update to three hundred. Sam had a business. He borrowed ten thousand dollars from his mother and got rolling by nineteen fifty five decor was producing what they called their dial breath. Double hose regulator sam along with another engineer while he mitchell continue to work on regulator development along with other scuba diving equipment from my review of the old decor catalogs. It looks like they didn't introduce their first. Single hose regulator the decor dart until one thousand nine hundred sixty two although they had developed earlier some say four years before sports ways introduced. There's but as a as we've seen with health ways and dick anderson's work a lot of folks who are innovating at this time. One of the ways. I like to research. these early. Manufacturers is look at their old catalogues. The cg forty-five website has a lot of reference material. Along with these old catalogs the earliest decor catalog that i was able to review from thousand nine hundred sixty one. That was the same year that see honda ended. The catalog was a whopping four pages. Long it had there are three double hose. Dial breath regulator for eighty two dollars. They complete single tanks system for one hundred and forty four dollars and a double host set up for doubles. Set up for two hundred and twenty nine. You could pay an extra five dollars to get yellow tanks. The cadillac had one mask one snorkel and one set of things by nineteen sixty two their line expanded with the d one day corridor. Single hose regulator and a new are four dial breath double hose. Remember that patented safety float. Well it was in thousand nine hundred sixty two catalog over the next couple of years. They continue to innovate with the dart d. Two and a dart with ajay valve for three hundred psi reserve on the first stage they also had the clipper series double hose regulators c two and c three by nineteen seventy decor came out with yet another new regulator line the olympic series with the one hundred two hundred four hundred and eight hundred. The last catalog. I went through was from one thousand nine hundred eighty and decor was touting twenty-six years of diving innovation with a doubling of their space at northfield manufacturing headquarters and the installation of a hyperbaric chamber for regulator testing. Looks like nineteen eighty was the year. They introduced what they touted. As a revolutionary regulator their decor pacer regulators pacer is short for positive air controlled equalizing regulator claiming to have totally balanced first and second stages with a remarkable point zero five inches of water. Cracking pressure wow. That's pretty low. They say they harnessed venturi with something called. Ventura matic something really innovation at this. Time was there microsoft Circuit dive computer. It looks like it took up. Most of your forearm with indicators for deco cent rate depth time readouts and more. It was quite a marvel for the time. Sam davidson passed away in nineteen eighty seven and sam's wife. Joan became ceo by nine thousand nine hundred ninety eight. Joan sold decor tomorrow's an overtime the decor named faded into our diving history. I did see a short article in two thousand five edition of sport diver and it was from nari and they indicated that they could no longer get replacement parts for decor regulators because the parts suppliers had destroyed their mold before they can move all of that to the marez a facility in palo italy. So that's a little bit of the history of sam davison junior the davidson corporation and decor one of the five original scuba equipment manufacturers in the united states.

What battery does tune into this folks People starting by the app. Have you heal absolutely might sourcing. Thanks for taking such lately. Me fall from the bay area. Lake all the podcast guests. I laid to feel your says an introduction bloodless most absolutely i think i think thank you for having me here and it's been long coming but i wanted to kind of chess insights on sleep it off myself. I do. I am a i would say. A software guy turned sports psychologists mental conditioning coach. And i've been in the field right now for close to san whoa trails close. Nearly twenty plus years now the holding has an alchemy from being a software percent spoke psychology person and how suffer has been an integral part had out on the psychology side of things. That's pretty much my stuff and you know and then Been working a lot of Cricketers Tennis players and davidson is pretty much named on the sports of things and also on the industrial side of things that have been working closely with material management companies and helping them out on the leadership coaching side of things and also the organizational development along with in a how with the hr side about how psychologists helps and again how software to us has out in you know making changes and you know into development and also on the redo a lot of a lot of lenses and how data is a data warehousing can call it that has been a significant part in athletes are development. That's pretty much that there's a big enchilada but so we like to try to break it down as much as possible. I think If i can now safely say you must be the first guest innovative podcast. Who had such a baby expedients across different industries from being software. I know you would up project management of that shed. What led you into psychology ethics. Psychology has been an integral part. Like you know because i was I used to play a lot of tennis in college. And be it in my Bachelor's masters but also you know like i grew up and sport has been an integral part of me.

I was thinking that just fate and why losing and then From there that journey was part of always there as in the back of my mind but then obviously you you go into engineering and on you go into that aspect of life and sport is also an integral part for me that the psychology was always lingering behind in my in my mindset and even in in walk and think when i was doing product management quality assurance it was always coming down locked to a your soft skills. And you're obviously where you have to because you're not just beaming with deliverables. But he also dealing with with people and how that how psychology plays such a such a big there I think that was so it helped me immensely there but at the same time it was also challenge to kind of like because sodas always about to woman's and you obviously like what you give is what you get a hit. It was more about learning to push the right kind of buttons especially people. It's what person push that's gonna help them. Perform that was a very unique challenge on the software side of things. In sport it is comparatively a lot more easier. Because it's there's lots of hardness stewart. I think i think that made a for me to pursue Shift from project management of this. It's still the same the essence or the principles behind. It are still the same. But i guess the obviously the methods and the processes behind odd. And that's that's where. I was churning between the two and And found a way. I know it's like talk to explain it. At some point you find a we do Gel between and i still do a lot of consulting work on that front.

The Science of Emotional Intelligence With Daniel Goleman

"My friend danny goldman wonderful. Dan you wrote. This obscure book called emotional intelligence. Twenty five years ago. I acted because it became a massive bestseller and let me ask a really basic question. What is emotional intelligence. Well you know when. I wrote emotional intelligence. Iq was like the big thing and it was really speaking to people's overemphasis on purely cognitive ability so much intelligence means being intelligent about your emotions and you know the way i look at it. There's four parts to that. There's being aware self-awareness. Very big part of it knowing what you're feeling y you're feeling it how it impacts you then managing your emotions using that self awareness to get over your upsets and you know encourage positive emotions motivations and so on and then empathy tuning into other people and what. They're feeling and to do that if to pick up. A lot of nonverbal cues people. Don't tell you in words they tell you. In other ways facial expression so and then putting that all together to manage relationships will to be effective with other people that might be the most visible part of emotional intelligence but interestingly so f- awareness the least visible part turns out to be foundational when you talk about self awareness within the e. q. Context is it the same thing as mindfulness. Why would say. Mindfulness is an application of self awareness. Mindfulness in mindfulness practice. You watch your mind very carefully. You don't let yourself get sucked in to this thought of that. Thought you don't judge it. You see it your knowledge it you let it go. That's definitely self awareness. But you don't have to be a mindfulness practitioner to be self aware. Anybody can do it anytime. What are you experiencing right now. What are you thinking about what you feeling. The answers to that are all so foreignness. It seems like it might be much easier to do. If you've got a mindfulness practice i would say that. A mindfulness practice is the equivalent of getting cardiovascular fit. You know the more you work out the more you ride your bike the more you do the treadmill the more you do whatever it is the easier it gets you you become more able to exercise for a long time and the same thing with exercising your mind. Which is what mindfulness is. It's a metal workout and the workout. Is you make a deal with yourself. That you're gonna watch thoughts and your feelings and not judge them and let them come and go and when you get distracted and you get caught up in a thought and you notice you're caught up you bring it back to that mindful stance that bring it back. I think is the equivalent of the you know lifting await in gym every time you lift weight. That muscle gets a little stronger. And i think every time you bring your mind back the brain circuits for being able to observe what's going on. Get a little stronger. It says your concentration and you know. I just finished book with my friend. And i think you know to richard davidson the neuroscientist at wisconsin where we looked at all the most recent best studies of meditation and we found that beginners become more calm and they're more able to focus and interestingly from a brain point of view. Both of those things use the same circuitry

"That's like the first day. The very very first a buddy of mine paul peletier. Who's a former prosecutor who teaches a course on he calls it money laundering at a law school. And he said oh i should have said anti money laundering though. Yeah the first day you realize. Like i definitely got three or four people in this class. Who were here to money. Launder our here. My laundering big part of our economy and the people who are good at it. Yeah part of being good at it is you. Don't yellow by and he openly remember openly talks about bribing foreign officials talks about how money laundering fuels real estate. It'd be he's an embarrassed and the good people of the money. Laundering industry reflects so badly on. You talk about. We don't really in this country. Have an apparatus in place to prosecute white collar crimes and he likely And i agree with you is not going to go to jail. But he does seem that he has some you know civil Exposure here a not just him but his children and you've sort of pointed out that maybe vodka trump has her hands and more things than than we were led to believe. I would say it was an initial surprise but it's now really robust is the finding that not just me. I'd say every reporter who covers the trump organization is just how central vodka is to the shady or parts of the business and in one of the stories that i reported in the new yorker in three years ago about this unbelievably shady dylan azerbaijan. Truly i publish this. The new yorker published this and the trump organization said nothing was wrong in the article and acknowledged that they were part of a money laundering scheme. Iran's revolutionary guard and the person leading that project vodka and. I have on the record from people involved that she personally called for the destruction of this community. This working class community in baku azerbaijan. Because she wanted a larger park for her hotel residents and i even went to azerbaijan. I met people whose homes were destroyed. Who whose lives are permanently worse. I think ivanka is as many people. In the trump world will say she's. She's the tougher of the trump's. She's not none of these people are geniuses but she obviously has a savvy. She has a sophistication. i think. It's obvious she is made a major pivot from being the kind of progressive in the trump world to just been full trump world. But in a way. I think that she hopes will capture those suburban women that that trump demanded love him. I think she is the threat. I think she's the risk going forward because she. I mean my colleague. Andrew bernstein and others have reported on how she was going to be arrested and manhattan. Da sivan's decided not to arrest her even though there's email evidence of her acknowledging committing a crime. She's she's bad news but she's a lot better than the rest of the family at pretending she's not. I wanna talk about something optimistic before we go. Which is your book the passion economy and it does speak to what you were saying earlier that there's a way for people You know not giant corporations to interact with consumers at a level Making things that they care about deeply actually make a living. Yeah i mean actually the work of my book. A lot of it came out. I was working with a group of economists business. School professors at mit and harvard. When we all thought hillary clinton was gonna be the next president and we were very frustrated that she wasn't articulating an optimistic forward looking message about the economy..

"Now please welcome to the show adam davidson. How are you at them from doing. Well it's nice to see you again as well. So i wanna start your obviously an economics reporter and the world is going to change a great deal. I imagine your work. We'll still be rigorous but tell us how you think it'll be different under a biden administration compared to what it was like trump administration. I mean i am so excited to have no idea what biden thinks about any american company or foreign company So excited i mean the other day biden had some speech and i was like i don't even have to watch it. It's gonna be boring. Which is good. i'm thrilled. it's going to be boring if it's a sign of very dysfunctional economies. I've spent a fair bit of my career in developing world highly corrupt nations. Where you think a lot about what the president or the leader is thinking and feeling about different things. Different companies different aspects of the economy but in america. Typically you want the president just sort of thinking long term big picture. You don't really wanna know what they're thinking. Day to day month the month. About the stock market about boeing. About which air conditioner companies should be doing well which isn't so yes. Boring is generally very good for the economy. How do you describe the brand of trump's corruption having covered it for so long. So i really have done a very deep dive of travel to central asia and other places to to cover him. I would call him presidency presidency. As a real bottom feeder on the massive corruption that existed in america in the last i mean in the world in the last twelve years and i think we hear so much about russia and this and that is if trump was like the The in charge of the us russian corruption. That that's not the case but what we do know is that over. The last two decades half of russian wealth like trillions of dollars from russia and other soviet former soviet nations flowed into the us into the uk capital flight money laundering and lots of institutions including major banks and major businesses made hundreds of billions of dollars trillions of dollars off of this trump was more in a bottom feeder. A few million here a few million there by offering a big shiny gold brand to otherwise thoroughly corrupt projects. And it was. This is the thing i would say. People seem fine that he's corrupt. I don't think they understand how bad he is at corruption. How incompetent he's like the sydney powell rudy giuliani of corruption. He's left a lot of money on the table in structures the deals badly. It's that to me is what we should be focused on..

"You know there are opportunities for you to cross through like a pathway in the bubble and you can kind of see sometimes even though they they have kind of tarps over the fencing. You can still kinda see through their the pathways that either players or personnel take So it is kind of. Set Up I. Think you see like people were kind of especially early Kinda gravitating towards the bubble trying to see if they could catch his of what's going on since it really is right in the middle of downtown Evanston I, wanted to ask you for that because it's one of the things and fascinated by lake you have these two hockey med cities in Edmonton and Toronto, and you have what's basically a bunch of all star teams that are just like in the middle of these cities and they're staying there and yet they're like in a dome. Kind Kinda like you know where they are and you know where they're going and everything, but they're not leaving dome right. So what was that like like? Did you see people like autograph hounds and people like around the perimeter? Players attention like what? What was that like on the outside of the bubble looking in. I didn't, but I did see while I still was in quarantine and obviously on the bubble had opened like you know players in teams had arrived there worth fans that were going down there. I think just try to catch a glimpse and I think it was tough for them initially especially, because you know everything was so secure and it was the first few days. So maybe people weren't as mobile in the bubble because there were those I think the first five days players pretty much had to stick with their teams go to practice and then go back to their room but I, think as. You know things kind of starting. You know player got to be more mobile and get around the bubbles I'm you could probably catch more glimpses I did what I did notice more often was team it like the charter buses especially I think more early on when they were taking, you know teams to practice which the practice was twenty five minutes away from downtown So you would see like bosses and it would say either NHL or have like a a logo of the teams that it would be transporting I saw bosses, kind of more frequently then actually seeing kind of players milling around but. You're right I. Think it was you know for me especially if felt kind of because I'm from Edmonton this is where I had my introduction to the sport and where I sell love with the game and it turned into my career and to have it here in this type of steady. That is just you know like you said crazy for hockey the fans love it. I. Do remember to ahead of the very first game in the bubble which was edited Chicago like Spin on the street you know they parked their vehicle that had attacked owed and. Logos flags, and just you know that would be normal probably for a game fan streaming into the arena, and there's that excitement and energy, and here's just you know people just now standing on street corners doing it 'cause they can't get in and I'm still I think early on, you still felt that buzz from the city even though fan from being led in. I want to switch gear to the wild. As I mentioned, they didn't even make it to the first round. There was the qualification round but listening to Bill Garin Talk his exit interview. He says there are things need to change with this organization. He inherited a roster that we know is old and slow, and it's brought by some old contracts. They do get real capris off next year but there's a lot of uncertainty we don't know. WHO's GONNA come back? What are you expecting the summer? Do you think that this is the summer where there are some big shakeups and big trades What do you think's GonNa? Happen. I wouldn't be surprised because I think that's the tone that Bill Garin has set and you know you're right. He hasn't even been on the job for year like he was hired at the end of August and that was such a really short runway for him to try to effect any change to this roster before training camp and essentially you know he didn't he did signed jeered purge into that long term contract extension but really I mean he didn't you know truly change this roster until the Jason Ducker trade to Pittsburgh and February, and I think that trade and then the ensuing decision to fire boost. In mid-february later than we're used to seeing, he's not afraid to kind of shake things up and I and I think now with more opportunity, a wider window to actually change this team even though it's still you know not a typical off season You know he kind of acknowledged the landscape is kind of difficult to handicap right now So that may play a role. You know he's right and that's why. He was brought in to to to affect change. This isn't the roster that he picked. It's what he inherited. So I wouldn't be surprised if he starts to make some decisions that you know adjust the look that we're used to seeing for this wild team part of that obviously could be Meka Koivu he decides to retire at least retired from the NHL but you know besides caprice offs addition like he mentioned. This team still obviously looks like it needs help you help upfront needs to. goaltending and I think you know the tone that bill is set is that you know he's the guy who's not going to be afraid to make those types of moves to incite improvement in the areas of this team needs if it's going to be that team that long coveted to be in that's the Stanley Cup contender. For, sure one of the things that I found interesting guarantee posts a series comments was talking pretty candidly about the goaltending. How do you think they're gonNA handle that physician next season? Yes, that was a very I think probably the most raw on his take away from how he summed up the season was that he said he was disappointed in the goaltending and then he doesn't see a set higher keeper next season, which is interesting because technically I mean the wild is that in terms of it has to always under contract next season endeavoured Dude Nick and Alex Stay Lock So I think before they really can try to figure out how the competition will shake out they need to decide what to do with Cafo Cabinet and he was there minorly goalie last season. He was the Ahl Goalie of the year certainly didn't look out of place when he made his NFL debut during the season and he had a short abbreviated stint when nick was out so I think they need to really decide if they wanna give him a shot or he's better suited to get more time in the minors But after that, I mean he pretty much said if there's an opportunity to find help, he will explore that and do that and so maybe this is GonNa look completely different than it has been the last few years I. Know We talked to nick before. US comments and he's expecting to come back and be the type of goal. Get that number one job who will be the one to start the majority of games but Now the question is, will he get that chance? So I know center ice and? Still solidifying the top line up the middle is important but I think goaltending is way up there too and you know that's GonNa be something to watch the wild feels they can find someone to go out and you know help either internally maybe cabinet or somebody else in the trademark of free agency. I listened to listeners of this podcast. Probably think I'm obsessed with Capri off and that's right. I am. So my last question be about him. I've just been fascinated by the courting of him, which spanned three general.

"Hey, emily. Greg, how does it feel to have grown up as a fan of a team that has the resources to fix the NHL draft lottery? I feel blessed. I think all my sporting choices have been blessed. I also chose Chelsea my club and obviously have a Russian oligarch running us. So things are going to turn out our way, and here we now have the New York Rangers and the oligarchs of the ping pong balls that have twisted in our favor. So yeah, it's been a really great twenty twenty for me personally my favorite thing about the conspiracy theories of the NHL. Fix the draft for the Rangers because that guy dropped the ball that was either filled with helium or had some sort of magnetic on it to allow it to travel to the top of the lot of machine. My Fair conspiracy theory is the fact that they did this with James. Dolan still owning the Rangers knowing the heat that he and Gary Bettman have had through the years. It's pretty hilarious like of all the guys the NHL is. Just two guys the NHL is not bending over to help. It's like Eugene Melnyk and James Dolan. About correct. So we're going to bend over backwards. Wouldn't you think they would've fixed it for Connor mcdavid not to have him end up in. Edmonton exactly. Exactly. All right. We got a big show today but real real on the lottery the team that broke your heart didn't win the lottery was who? I really felt for the Minnesota while there's something about bill garin walking into this situation that feels tragic to me like he inherited a really bad roster with bad contracts and I, feel like a real capris office coming into the League and it's awesome and I just wish that he had a cool fun young wing man that's fast to come in with them. Yeah. I I agree with you I feel like the wild wild before caprice off it was like Mary Gabric and that's it. As. Far As homegrown offense ital- lake me for being a team Minnesota they've kind of been like rudderless and you know the most personality they ever had was when they spent a billion dollars to bring into other guys from outside the organization and even that did really produce results. So it would have been cool to see Minnesota become the team of Alexis law near but but sale Avi they simply didn't have the resources to pay off the Ernst and Young Guy and win the lottery. Appreciate you thanks Jim Dolan coming up on It's it's the price of the beer at MSG. It's forever going higher and giving them all the resources. Coming up in this edition of ESPN is we have John Davidson Jd, our old friend president of the Rangers talk about their big week or Awkward Week Actually A-plus Sarah. McClellan Star Tribune Minnesota Wild writer speaking of the wild who was up in Edmonton. kind of bubble adjacent but also inside the bubble to cover games, obviously the wild done but Sarah's going to join us to talk about her experiences and then obviously what should be an interesting season for Minnesota. All that and more obviously playoff hockey to on this edition of ESPN and ice. Let's start the show proper shelley from the ice to your ear buds a podcast about hockey featuring things to do with hockey from your friends at ESPN. It's ESPN on ice with with Shitski and Kaplan. It's ESPN is the podcast for. Talks about hockey I'm Greg Ski Senior Nhl Writer. Kaplan national NHL reporter. And if we're going to start talking about anything, it's going to be you got it. The fourth longest game in National Hockey League history five overtimes over six hours long Seth Jones I tallied it up Seth Jones skated longer in one game than the total running time of the nineteen forties. Disney. Classic Dumbo. This is the kind of stats you can get from this podcast. What an incredible, and here's the thing about the five overtime game with Tampa and and and Columbus. It was actually really entertaining like like it was it was a wasn't a slog. It wasn't just like I mean people were gassed by the end for sure but lake I thought the game play was actually pretty good for most of the five overtimes. Totally agree and maybe that's because the refs just let them play. We're not calling anything. But Yeah No. If you want some other funds stats, the lightning had eight shot from the exact same amount that the rangers had in three games in their timing bubble. So that's my favorite. Began no, it was an incredible game I. think it reminded us. Pie We love playoff hockey. There's nothing to it Steph Jones. I really feel like Tortorella is violating some Canadian labor laws with the way he's using him, but we are keeping our great American hope this guy can do it. All I swear to you watching the TV. I tried to watch play where Jones wasn't on the ice and I felt like it was never happening. Yeah. It's going to be great to see him with a gold medal around his neck at the next Olympics. Here's the thing. You bring up the penalties there's been this debate. I think Mike Milbury helped spark it by taking a picture of the space needle in Toronto and three didn't get. Less as. Motorola Razor Oh God. It's like the only way that could that picture could be less clear as he had like a court illustrator drive for him as he was standing there and then tried to take a picture of it listen he sparked this debate about whether or not marathon overtimes should end with a tweak to the overtime rules I I don't think he was saying we should go directly to a three on three or or a shootout and get the word shootout of your shootout out of your mouth. It's never gonNA come in house over Gary Bettman said body. The. But I think he was making a point that others have made over over time, which is like when you get past three overtimes like for the sake of health for the sake of can the kids see the end of the game on all that like maybe then go to four on four, go to three on three ultimately, I'd like to see it left up to the players like maybe the votes and says, you know what? Maybe we don't need five overtimes I think most of them would vote against it and say, let's just keep playing. But. I am curious to know what you think about at some point maybe getting away from the five on five marathon overtime thing and trying to develop a way to have these games end before they cross the six hour mark. I you forgot to mention the number one reason why we cannot have shootouts in playoff hockey and that's because our dear colleague. John Buccigross, create an entire economy on the overtime challenge, and we'll put them out of business. We can't. Insists no, we can't. We can't do about. That Yeah you know I was thinking that as well and I was thinking okay. If this is four on four, this would probably end sooner if this was three on three definitely ends sooner. But I'm not necessarily sure that it has to sooner and I think that a lot of the discourse last night was because there were so many games happening in the bubble because it literally moved the game one of the hurricanes and Bruin series to the next day. This is unusual typically not having these peewee style tournaments reverend gotta get off the Ice Ninety minutes to disinfect the benches, which by the way just like take a pause of how ridiculous that is. They're putting all these precautions to making this bubble safe tasting everybody every day, and then there's a little things they do like. Well, we have to spend ninety minutes to disinfect the benches. And then they're all going to spit and Claude each other it's working it's working though party it's working against. Exactly I feel like you would be arbitrary to decide. Okay. After the third overtime period, then we go to foreign four, and then at the fifth, we go to three thousand three like you said, it would go to a player vote likely and I don't think the players would go for it. You probably right what they should go for is this and what the NHL should go for is this. We had five overtime last night. Okay. So that is three periods of regulation..

"And occasionally American citizen if you believe that they are involved with a foreign intelligence service spying against the US. So. There's been a lot of the issues. It's A. It's a very secret court the court that seemingly has been willing to accept whatever the FBI has has warranted in its affidavits. and so the Republicans have complained that there's this was a political prosecution. That Carter Page was put on that. My view has always been that. No very very unlikely. It's not it's not part of the ethos of being an FBI agent. CARE which part I don't care how high up your in the FBI the ethos is that no man is above the in its that ethos that actually in some ways has been. It's annoying because there are cases the Ukraine case that we just talked about where sometimes. Politics takes a front seat in front of the concept of enforcing the law. Sometimes, it's the it's the greater moral choice don't. Don't interview. Don't press a off arc because he's instrumental to US policy in Ukraine and that's more important than a money laundering case out of Seattle which by the way there would be no chance that they were going to ever. Really. Charge him with anything. If, this is just it's all all the only thing that it do would create antipathy toward the US from this Alagar. who was a friend to the US interests more important to get Ukraine to join the European Union to get all of the institutions in place to to get the proper training, the proper re instill the proper. Governance in Ukraine and then once they're stable economically. Politically legally, and then you get them to join. Them away from East is that? Similar. Is that ethos sort of aligned with the idea of why ten days before the Election James. Comey opens up a case against. Hillary Clinton. Yeah that was actually. My first piece in the hill was exactly why was entitled why? The F. B. I. Appears politicized and what to do about it, and in that case I talk about Ukraine talk about the fact that sometimes you have a a moral, a choice between two competing moralities in enforcing the law is not always the highest moral choice in this case. Clinton Komi went into everyone's living room, and essentially said Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted. And so he disproportionately influenced the electric. In order for the electric to be wise you have to. They have to maintain some sort of independence of thought so. Everybody's trying to co-opt. The electorates thought Fox's CNN. Everybody's A. They're all trying to think for you. You should believe this you, should they? It's for obvious reasons. As a voter you most voters believe or not enough. People think that the crowd is pretty stupid overall, but I still believe that overall the crowd is is wise, and part of that wisdom comes from keep ince. Independent thinking for yourself getting influenced by the people, but ultimately you make a decision based on your prison, your world you're. You know the confines of your experience. So when Komi gone on TV and went into everyone's living room and said you know Hillary Clinton. What's what's the exact where it was extremely careless? That was the that was it that was that that in my opinion could very well or may very well have swung the election now there's other things that clearly influenced the electorate. you can make an argument Russia. Their their their activities obviously were tentative. So who knows whether any one factor influence the electorate enough, but you're exactly right..

It's the same experience, and it's a good one every time, but there to go game is on another level like you know you go to certain restaurants you get to go and ney forget like the most important staple I mean, listen California pizza kitchen wants nothing to do with the curious podcast. This is not a paid ad by any means, should it be yes, you better fucking believe it Calvin Pizza Kitchen. Are you dropping the ball? Not Advertising on? On My podcasts, perhaps, but you know what no bad blood! My friend, not bad blood I'm still going restaurant. Even if you didn't give me the copious amount of extra bread that you give me every time whether I asked or not, and that data is a good restaurant policy, and then they do this nice dip I don't know what it is. It's like it's simple. It's oil. It's vinegar. It's herbs, but it's I. Don't know what the proportions are, but when you apply that to a nice piece of crusty like you know bag at, let me tell you. It's a flavor party in your mouth and. It's incredible to me because listen I'm not chef, but I know how to mix herbs, oil and vinegar in my home and yet. I would never get that right. You know it's incredible to me. Salad dressing you go to a restaurant I. Don't know whether they just have suppliers who are doing better than we are, but I have not found a salad dressing from the supermarket that has ever compared to even the most mediocre restaurant salad dressing. Am I wrong? Is this crazy I don't think it is. But, then again you know in Corona I'm not going to restaurants, and you know what I gotta be honest. I don't miss it for she shit, and while I hate the idea that people in the restaurant industry are suffering nightrider STU, my best to support as best I can with just like a copious amount of to go food.

"Well that's K. Davidson she covers US economy for the Wall Street journal thank you for your time thank you you're listening to All Things Considered from NPR news there are few traditions more closely associated with tomorrow's New Hampshire primary than the midnight vote in a place called Dixville notch as Casey McDermott of New Hampshire public radio reports this tradition isn't always what it seems like on TV for almost fifty years the citizens of this tiny community close to the Canadian border have gathered at midnight on primary day to cast the first ballots in new Hampshire's first in the nation contest and for almost as long Dixville notch as midnight vote has fascinated the rest of the nation or at least to the national media in a picture postcard town decide the Canadian border a small quaint town in New Hampshire is really a page out of Norman Rockwell I am voters not a lot of chance of voter fraud the midnight vote in this town was always a media driven event it started as a way to give the press something to report early on election day and Dixville long held up to the rest of the world as a symbol of democracy at its purest has actually come under lots of scrutiny from state election investigators since twenty sixteen some of Dix hills voters according to a state investigation didn't actually live there some other election rules also weren't being followed as an adwords with New Hampshire attorney general's office explained the state was tipped off to the problems with textiles elections because of all of the press coverage the transparency of the media coverage is part of what led to the concerns that were raised with our office regarding Dixville notch and whether there were irregularities with the twenty sixteen election once the in eligible voters were removed from the rolls it wasn't clear that Dixville would have enough people to legally hold its own election again in twenty twenty as Tom Tillotson the son of the man who started Dix hills midnight voting tradition said last year it's getting to be a ghost town here the main business in town the balsam's resort closed down about a decade ago and took most of Dix hills voters with it the local economy is struggling big time but Dix hills fortune chain changed when a developer who's trying to bring the balsam's resort back to life declared that he would move back less Oughton says he has a few homes in Maine and Massachusetts but he decided to declare Dixville his residence for voting purposes so that the midnight vote could continue midnight roading in Dixville answers like snow is the winter on says his main goal is to make sure that take still continues to be a symbol of civic participation but he acknowledges that keeping the midnight vote alive might also boost his years long quest to reopen Dix hills shattered resort I don't think you could sit there and say that though there isn't part of me that hopes that the tradition of Dixville and the publicity of Dixville doesn't help the project state officials say they're satisfied that Dixville has resolved the problems with its election since twenty sixteen but it's keeping a close eye just to be sure well Dick still will be back in the spotlight for this primary it's not the only place the votes at midnight there's Hart's location and there's also mills fields which happens to be right next door to Dick's fell ill scale this kind of humorous mills feels New Hampshire is actually the birthplace of the midnight voting tradition there states back way before Dix hills to nineteen thirty six one a twenty seven year old woman named Genevieve Natick drafted up when are so is something of a self appointed town historian order step two bills Feelin that go on Dick strolling the big story is all about six build new feel being a spark while an outside PR company has been fielding media credentials and helping to orchestrate national news coverage of the midnight vote in Dixville so and his neighbors will get together a few miles down the road at a local tavern their designated polling place to cast their ballots at the stroke of midnight they say the press is welcome to show up.

Larry was in growlings with me. Same with Rachel and we the three of us were working on all these warner brothers things. He's like looney tunes. And and Rachel and Leery right on Mike Tyson me Rachel leary basically writing the episode so your experience on the fringes fringes of kids television inform. Nobody's yeah and then we and then we shot seasons of that. So what's it like being funny out in Hollywood these days Was it relaxing stress. I think the one thing I didn't think about as a career in the in the comedy side. I did not think this through one. I think there's a lot less money in it than I my fantasies and maybe also that changed over time with all these channels but but it's like why else would I have had a television show like you know th there's so many choices now of course it's all less money but then the other thing that I didn't think about is when you become an adult like it's just hard jobs are hard and then you have your life and then you go to your job and your job is supposed to be laughing all day but then maybe a bunch of things went terrible in your life. It's like now I should have been dramatic and if I was writing on you know. Svu Law and order. And it's all about you know some horrible thing with the kid that got murdered then when your life goes bad you come to work. It's fine you you write a thing about a kid that got murdered but then you don't have to pretend to be laughing so that's I think my advice ity get into drama. You know like why comedy. It's hard to keep laughing. Every redone voices. I do voices occasionally for these guys. I played who I play a hairdresser on one of the robot chicken sketches I mean the star wars ones but then like the one I thought. Oh this is definitely. I should do this one. They gave at the Seth Macfarlane. Oh and not have enough bullshit Ville do come on I wrote it. You don't get to cast it no but it was like come on. I would have been fine fine.

"And he just did it and then he was super funny and he was still he. It was great but I he would have been super funny doing the other thing too. Just no one would've understood what has a having had norm MacDonald on the show dude that attracted a bigger audience. I don't that's a that I don't know I bet a little bit. I know norms got his core audience. I feel like he might have a slightly skewing older audience. That might be think that when they look at an adult swim. I'm show their their. Their guard is up so high and they just go. This is weird and it's not for me And they don't like take the time to go. It's not that weird you you know. It's because it's Mike Tyson. Mysteries is not that weird. It's not that avant-garde it's like they get a mystery and then there's not that hard to follow. Did he end up improvising. Changing the lines. He he every once in a while. He's super smart and very well read And every once in a while norm will do something. That's very can be embarrassing. We're he'll say the grammar's not right here. Or you've got the tenses sort of. What's your and those become embarrassing to me? Like if he but he never he never he thinks the jokes are funny. Yeah Blin he thinks the jokes are funny and I think he genuinely thinks the show is funny. So there's a little bit of anxiety that norm you want normalized. Yeah I think so for sure. How about Mike Mike? The only time Mike. He loves That people tell him the show is great. We'll see watch it. I doubt it. I bet he watches every once in a while. He thinks Mike will think things are funny. If his character gets mad he likes that he loves saying motherfucker and he loves loves getting angry. It's like he's good at it as you can imagine but like his acting transitioning from like a kind of laughing or saying what and then getting angry and by the way I still always find it funny because I think it kind can happen in real life with him like. He's very impulsive very impulsive. So like if Mike just just want something he he just grabs it or he. He doesn't think about the consequences it doesn't appear to me. He's not governed by the the laws laws of physics as we are he just moves to the universe on his own thing. Have you ever felt threatened by them. One time I know. Oh I've never felt threatened but one time I felt like he was mad and I know one time he did not like a joke. which was we did? A sort of semi a period gentle dental parody of those real housewives shows and ours was it was the mystery was. Why did one set of House wife and her husband not get invited to the to some charity ball and it was set in Newport beach so it was among rich people and then we basically four added our show like one of those shows so so it was like you met the four real bitches of Newport beach we call it and then just apropos of nothing? We had mike also do one of those things where he goes. I'm Mike Tyson. I saw mysteries threes. I'm known for two things I I saw mysteries. And I'm a bitch because every woman kept saying that was their joke. Like and I'm a bitch like every every beach beach city needs a bitch and I'm that bitch. They kept having these jokes so mike needed to do it too and he had an incredible reluctance to say. I'm a bitch and I think it would carried worried. Great that carry great significance in in prison life where he had done that and he did not. He didn't want to say that and and he didn't he did it. And he kind of swallowed the line. I was like Mike. It'll be funny. Just do it and he did it but he didn't. He didn't do it with zest did you keep it. We did. Yeah it works because it's like in a package thing but he didn't. He didn't lean into it as they say these days ahead of been uncomfortable. Yes and then one time he got. I saw him get he became mad talking about Don King. What got him at I think he has strong long negative feelings about dying by the time I think they might have had a reproche mall with him since then but I think at the time he was like he when he was telling some story Don King came up and he then he started talking about what a mother fucker is like kind of got real mad and it seemed seem to real his anger is he healthy. Is He in good shape he vacillates enormously. It's so funny because sometimes I'll think like Oh my God. He's he's gained a lot of weight and he's all in the next time the last time I saw him. He seemed thin thin in shape and totally totally with it and like a young guy so he goes. He's always riding waves as he ever punch you one time in my excitement. This this is early on. I don't know what the fuck my brain was thinking. I was excited. We just finished. He came out of the booth and for some reason. I kind of got my arms Ormes moving in this way with my this clenched like like I don't know like a kid like with excitement and I was and then I kind of like I found myself kind of like punching. hunching him on the arm for no reason like out of excitement like I should have just hugged him and instead like I did the one thing you should never do. And then he immediately got himself into a boxing position and then he didn't do anything but I was like. Oh my God. What have I done the last thing you should do to that dude and his body is the key? Here's the crazies body. I've ever seen close like his I. I don't know why I know this. Maybe because we had to get him shoes wants for the live action stuff. He has a size fifteen and a half foot now. He's not taller than me. But that's a big foot. Yeah and then his hands the fingers are not that long but the meat part of the hand. The best part is double my hand. It's like crazy looking and it looks crazy and when you shake it it's crazy then the other thing that's crazy is the distance from his. I would say from his chest to his back like a lot of people have broad shoulders but they're not like brought also cube. Yes and then. That's when it dawns John's on like one time. I thought like he was a little man. I thought if he went crazy what would I do. Is there a weapon. What would be the thing you want? Let it get me. Do I have one shot. I I was thinking I was like do to try to strike the head with a big heavy metal thing and just looking at him he he looks impossible to stop. I think you I don't know what you do. I think you gotTA play dead. Yeah dropped to the ground and we got it out. Maybe his eyes don't see movement if you just because he doesn't look like in care like I don't think he'd be filling anger like you wouldn't want to beat me up for that reason but he might just being mode and then maybe if you if you stay still he just pass you unlikely Circumstance for a cartoon yes. Yeah yeah but I think it gives it that you know what's funny is because I always think like that. I want that to be a little bit in our show like the feeling always so gentle. And he's not as nice and he's the hero of the show. Whatever the he's the Nice Dad but then just a little bit like a shitty go crazy and kill us all like every should remember that secret sauce? We put in a little bursts of anger. We'll throw in every once in a while just to keep you can look for those. Yeah where are you in the the status. Where's that show now? Mike Tyson is we are in post on our fourth season. Wow so how many episodes is that for coming up on forty forty. I think sixty sixty isn't that crazy. Holy cow episodes maybe fifty. It's maybe it's fifty. Maybe we did ten the first season and then twenty twenty twenty. A lot of shows. Don't go that long. Yeah Yeah it's very especially because I thought this show one one episode season. I would have bet. The House on young person's guide to history and giving zero dollars place on Mike Tyson.

"You're sitting there at Warner brothers. Yeah in an office and the phone rings. No Sam Peter Comes. In and Peter was he was given a mandate to start going down the path of trying to get into adult comedy for Warner Brothers and then he comes the Ozzy's like we have this thing with Mike Tyson and so they already had a sizzle reel. which was Mike Tyson Andrew dice clay? I believe was in it. And maybe it was like Some old PANAPA Ribeira characters would pop up so and then I was like you know. Tyson had appeared in the hangover which I thought that looked very funny to me. I didn't see people haven't seen the hangover. He at least that looked like good use of Mike Tyson. But by the time we were GONNA use it I was like this is lane lane. The it didn't seem funny to me and so I was already to tell Peter no and I did and then because I was like the first time I had turned down a job Bob and then Peter goes please and then I say yes. Wow I was real push. Oh yeah that was easy yes but then it became fun because I did right. I wrote like I five outlines for the first five episodes again just like thinking. This is what I would do to make this funny if you like it. Great if you don't like it I don't care I'm gone and and then lezo liked it He he must have seen the outlines and he liked it and we went into production and then it became Super Fun to work John once we got the cast in place and it's really is very fun to work on and I I find it very funny. I mean it's like it hasn't been McDonald. Who wouldn't laugh at McDonald? You'd have to be crazy. Yeah so you wrote some outlines laser light that you started writing scripts and then then so I guess we'd probably written like five scripts before that fateful encounter with Mike Tyson at his house at five in the morning. I'd never because we were recording any of them yet. We were just writing. A maybe proof of of concepts guests staff wrote half dozen scripts. Yeah Yeah I think that's right and then it was time like okay. Well we can really do this. That's record so you got news that it had been an ordered. Yeah and then you have to go record Mike House in Vegas. Yeah that was the shocker. But then from then on he became it became fun and I love of Mike Tyson. It'd be I would be one of those people if Mike Tyson goes crazy. And he like King Kong murders a bunch of people And takes you know goes goes crazy with his fist full of unbridled anger like the hulk. If that happens I would be one of those jobs on the local news saying. That's not the Mike like I know. What is it about him that I don't? He seems like he seems like so not like an athlete. Like I feel like you. You'd think of these ex-professional athletes and in a they want to still be. And I don't know that many I feel like I just seeing interviews. They look like they still expect and want you to think there that still that athletes and their Mike Tyson. It seems like no part of him. Identifies with being a boxer or an athlete. He just seems like This this person and he has kind of a fun affect about him. It's like it's like he makes no sense to me. He comes off nerdy and nice and sweet and he's got. He's kind of sensitive while at the same time being very insensitive. He doesn't notice Shit But like he'll he'll say he says thank you to the people in the gentlest way. He'll take a picture with anyone he he he's he seems like I don't know he had a transformation. How yeah how? How does that square with his general perception with his history? I know you know it's like if you if you walk around with him like the few times have been. Oh one time we were in a New York comic con and it seemed like a fight almost happened with the guys from What has been the Boondocks is the guy the Guy Michael Jai White? Yeah he's like a big fighting guy right. I'm not sure I think he is. I think he's like a Whatever you call it Martin mixed martial loss and he's an actor and and crucially? He seems to have portrayed Mike Tyson and the Mike Tyson unauthorized story that aired on like ABC ladies throw walking down a hallway. The Mike Tyson crew and the boondocks career whatever's walking the other fucking way and it was Li- it it seemed like the sharks and the jets. Except who cares about the rest of the fucking cartoon nerds on either team. It's just this one big guy and then Mike Tyson Jason and then it got so weird and the Guy Tommy Davidson the comedian on Boondocks. He seemed to try to defuse. I use it. He did the COMEDIANS role. He was like you know. Let's make it funny. Let's take down the temperature. And then he was traveling and that did not work at all and I feel like at one point. He was Mike. Tyson sort of gently moved him to the side and it was like a chest to chest yet and then my wife Rachel at the time is like oh she was wanting to it was like we gotta get the Fuck Outta here. We're all going to be beaten to a pulp and tornado like that. This is about to get and then like somehow Mike. I don't know what happened. You could barely hear them. He was I think he was angry that that this guy had portrayed them in a bad light yeah and then I think this guy I was like tough to didn't want to back down probably wasn't this guy's fall so as I just one of those things so what happened kind of nothing. It was a lot of heart's racing. Yeah you know you thought that maybe this was going to be. That could be a snap of our show is going to end here in the right in the moment. Wow now and that was before it aired. And you've moved on moved on down the hall. Yeah wow you went on down the hall. How has the perception of the show Benefa- people been responsive Syrup You know it's funny. It's like all adult swim shows. I'm old enough that I don't know any person that barely even knows what adult swim is. So you know what it's like a younger audience so young people. I'm sure love it. I don't mix with any of those people so I don't know mix solo now. I'm our age and older. Do Young people know Mike Tyson. I don't I don't I think if anything they just think he's like a character on a show now I don't think any of them know about the show. Yeah they they probably get confused. George Foreman I don't think there's any real you know censor who was just a A character yeah. He's a toothless lion. That's what he called himself. He was like. Oh we're trying to get a vendor Holyfield for one thing And of Andrew Holyfield was like holding out for a million dollars or something because he felt like to do a voice he should be paid like a boxing match. And then it was like Alexandra and then Mike was Mike. Tyson was actually being very funny. But he's he's like I told the Vander Vander. We're all lions man. We don't get our teeth anymore. We we gotta just do we got to just live our lives man and then then Mike is like laughing. He's like oh these old boxers they always want a lot of money and then we just the deal. He'll never happen so we didn't write a thing with the manner holyfield which was just as well because no one in the audience gives shit about of Holyfield. How about norm norms? The funniest person. I think he's the funniest person on earth. I thought that when I was you know younger norm MacDonald. How did he come into the show he just you know weirdly the Peter had worked with Peter Girardi had worked with Some of the people norm nixes with particularly the guy who played saul and solve the Moolman. Josh Gardner Josh Gardner. Who I though? Because he's the first cousin of another ground guy of my era nat faxon and Nat faxon and Jim rash or writing partners. They they like Oscar winners. They re they won an Oscar for the descendants. But they're they're both very sketch comedy kind of guys and Jim rash at that point had become also the dean on community and then was on our show. But Josh Gardner whose Nats First Cousin was norms opener on many tours for stand up so there was this connection to josh to norm through Josh that Peter when he called and we offered him the role of pigeon I think he was receptive that he otherwise might not have been because of that. Little Bit of familiarity with Peter a little bit a shorthand and then he came in and my God. He did the funniest thing the first first time nor did not want to do his normal voice on the show so he came in and he did a thing. That was making me laugh so hard because but but that's a problem if you think someone's so funny everything you do you think is they. Do you think it's fine. But he was basically doing his impression of Sterling Hayden The Guy in the general in Dr Strangelove so norm is doesn't sound like norm for the first like three pages of the script and Peter Girardi the the executive at Warner Brothers gets this Ashen look on his face like we've hired norm MacDonald to be nor McDonnell. No one's GonNa you know what this fucking thing is. It's like an impression of a guy from nineteen sixty but I was laughing so hard because it was so funny and then it was my job to tell me that we didn't want that and it was terrible. I was so like embarrassed. Oh my God. Even more norm brought his mother to the record. A norm has got to be so. The mother is like a grandmother type aged person. She's a little old lady very sweet. She's in the voice booth. He comes in. I'm like Oh my God. This is MacDonald this is going to be so great. He begins reading the first bit of dialogue. And he's doing it in a voice that doesn't sound anything like norm McDonald. Why why was that choice? Made you think his own creative uzes and you know what's funny is it's like he was right. It was very funny. Do you think he didn't WANNA be nor McDonald's routes will probably I think he like I think he's got like a and I get it because then it's like McDonald's and he writes his own material whatever. He's in charge of his career if he sounds like Norma Donald and he makes a joke and I've written the joke in the joke sucks. It's embarrassing for norm MacDonald. Everyone's like McDonald's does not funny anymore cartoon but he's going to do in a funny voice that no one will recognize right preserves. I'm telling you laughed. Hired at this performance of his because it was something it was is also correct. It was a great choice do you haven't I bet we. We must unless they unless like all things they pressed a race. I don't know But it was like but also I to get the audience wouldn't have gotten so you are learning this of this decision in real time studio with Norman his mom. Yes and Peters who saying okay. Let's see what we did one script and Peter. Let's take a break and then I just said I said I blame the network and I said is this all right Peter if we just say and then I said I kept saying they and I'm like they want you to be norm. They really do. And how did that. Go over He. He seemed he seemed like the person who's like. I've heard this same line. Fuck it. I'll the DUMB corporation is wrong. But I'll do it whatever..

"Petroleum p played a dinosaur. People want to know Howie Tower. Works like how how to stop the stop. Motion part is actually so fantastic. It's a it's like candy to me DO I. So get it It's appeal because there's something magical about watching these stupid dolls And I even I've written a sketch for star Star Wars and it was about the Wamba. Yeah and it was like Glueck pulls into a gas station and his swing fighter. I decided they gas stations and then like the womp there and the is like he's having a shitty life ever since his arms cut off and like he he parks on the wrong side of the thing. The gas tank is on the run A- and then he drives around to the other side and then he drops his keys and he has trouble with the gas. 'cause he has one arm it's also hard. Life is so hard and Luke's is just watching it. It and he feels so bad about what happened. And that that Chris McKay directed that one I think. Are you a star wars fan. I like star wars or peer pressure. Star here is there and and certainly know what the fuck you're talking about. You know the names of all the little animals and shit. No I was going through empire strikes back but even the third one I was like they seem so stupid. Though e walks I was like oh you lost the plot I love the I two though. But then there's like six more now. There's all these other fucking these other things you have to pretend to to like star wars. No I I think what ended up happening. Thank God is there was no hiding my ignorance. They the robot chicken guys have decided to think. It's funny that I don't know stuff and so now it's at least are on the table and they just laugh so now it's like I'm the old the old man who doesn't know it. He doesn't know any references now. The old man on the staff Jesus like there so they don't work at all. None of it works. I don't and have any John Bolton's very proud. That did come back in I did. He didn't occupy space in the public sphere later on in life. But you know I'm always either way ahead of my time in a useless way or it's something they just don't they don't get there. They're like what is this what we have have no reason for this so you started on the show. Yeah at the beginning of the show. Yes and then you were there for how long I breath well. It was unclear to me how they really worked. I think I was in the early days to me. I was like a robot. Chicken regular writer. In point of fact I think they hired lots the people in between I would work for like six weeks a year and then another year would pass and get it back invited back to robot chicken and do another six weeks so you get invited in. Do you feel like you'd have to prepare Get yourself up to date with not really because I found. I found a technique that works for me. What was that the man Seth in their desperation to to fill the shows goes with the garbage? They put the shows. They would have a dry erase board and on this address for the be all these stupid titles of of movies pop culture crap and toys that they loved so I could sit there and look at the list look it up go straight to wikipedia find out what it was and like if actually there's a sort of interesting story so how long were you there before you bailed on chicken. I think I would always due robot chicken. I did the Star Wars specials. I did the DC specials I did a Batmans in DC on the DC special. The song is called sailing. I just thought it was funny because green lantern who like if they go into space greenland would always have to do is ring for Batman and the and the people that couldn't travel in space and it looks so embarrassing. Like their the way they got to the bat interstellar battle embarrassing and I thought that so my idea for the the sketch was Batman. Talk to him about a different vehicle. Could he choose a different vehicle than just this. Fear the green sphere and he chose a sailboat. And then I kinda. I tried to write a rocky song that was about sailing and he just relaxed mood. So you didn't really bail you. Just do it whenever I can whenever you could something yes. And then what came next stumbled onto Meiteis so then after this is all before saul no Saul Saul is after robot chicken maybe the first or second writing job Robusta Cycle they call them here for like six weeks. Then I wrote on Sol then. I acted on salt when we shot and I played one of the people suit in the outfits. Listen I was in one of those outfits for about three hours. It's something else I was. It was terrible I was in it the whole time but I was like I was having in such a fun time and I really thought it was like could potentially be something then. We would get the scripts. I kinda thought like I think we we blew it but scripts erupts. Yeah there's too much there's too much too much story that no one cared about too much plot that you had to kind of follow and then you weren't really following like he didn't stay simple enough. I think I think you've got to to fucking crazy collapsed on. It's all. Yeah I think so but I had such a fun time acting. It was very fun and then did you play. I played a budget. I played Bertram. Who was like a guy in a moment so I was in that big with the fake? Oh by the way at this point in time I believe in Hollywood proper Hollywood. They have things called fat suits Well our production did not. We had a thing called a beanbag chair which was like taped to me to create fat. So yeah it was like worse though. It's a low budget fads. It really was and then then I played a guy named the senior Baltimore which was just like a Mustache Guy I don't remember what he was about. And then I I played Thomas Jefferson and then supposedly Mike Laszlo liked that and I came back to me. I heard that that the that the adult swim brass which you might have been apart. They were like that's the show. That's the show. Yeah the Thomas Jefferson so then I thought Oh my God. I'm finally being recognized. I'm going to be the star of the spin up and I thought this will work so well and then that proceeded to be just like a car wreck young. A young person's guide to history watched. I watched a little bit of one because I had to put together a real for something acting real three years ago ago and I watched a little bit of it and I've found parts of it amusing But not the whole it seemed like a way worse version and drunk history history. It's I think it's like two people wanted to do a thing about history and one person did it in a funny way and we did it in unfunny. Well you know that You play the role of Thomas is Jefferson completely inspired Amilton yeah PROB-. Yeah no he's he's been on the record the lin-manuel wow. He saw that show and he was like it. There is a there's a I have an idea. There's a spark here. They've just missed it. They're just missed it but there's something here. It's like that van Dan. That didn't that didn't know whether there's a band that recorded the song so much like stairway to heaven and they're mad but it's like you missed it. We could sue them. Yeah that's new lin-manuel around that was young person's guide to history. I remember started out as a longer series of episodes. They got condensed down to two. Yes one would say almost punitively distilled punitively. I wish you could read my scripts from that area though. I think you'd like them a lot of Interesting people in those episodes. Yeah Yeah We'll we'll character a bit because I knew all those groundings people and Michaela Watkins Kahlo is in it. Patterson on richest gemstones now she was in it correct bridesmaids with Kristen. Wig was in it Who Else Larry was hilarious and gone on anything? Anything famous for the Great Larry Door. Yeah he did but he did the thing where they dressed as a woman in the talk show for you guys. Oh yeah terrible or a funny It was it had some funny parts to it. It was it was Peculiar yeah it was Addition for that yeah and I went in with two other. People felt like one of those additions like commercial. Auditions are like this. And it's like you know. Just weird people off the street. You're in a room with suddenly you're going to improvise with them and you can just tell they are so desperate to talk that you a normal human will just give up and just sink inside themselves which I did I just I gave up. They were They had some hot takes fighting to express them. Yes yeah ask Yuppie broads that's good people on it. Yeah Yeah Tommy Blocher earthquake. Didn't Tommy do something on young one person's guide. Did he play. Something needed one thing to pop through that. So Seth Green been on south. Yeah did he wipe the bugger. Duggar on the curtain. Now maybe I feel like that. Maybe now's at that show is fraught with peril. But you know what came out of that also was Dave Dave Willis Did a young persons are for. Yeah yeah so it was a real incubator. uh-huh yeah a lot of the lot of great great ideas. They just didn't get they didn't coalesce not for young head of time and a good title young person's guide to history. We didn't do much with it though. Yeah we set the network back a bit there so I think yeah I saw that one away I feel I feel a little responsible and what happened. Then after that we got Peter Girardi looking as wounds took a job as a chastened he took a job at Warner Brothers animation where he works as a as a executive. Yeah then Peter Hired me to come in and do a brainstorming session about what to do with looney tunes and it was like me and Steve Little and some of those little crew. Steve was in young persons And we we said the only thought right I really had at the time was well. I've written all these sketches for both robot chicken and groundlings. I'm sitting on a treasure trove of written material. Not No not at all but I thought we could. We should do. The looney tunes is pitch it as the version of the muppet show. So it's like a sketch show and then make like the the muppet whatever the fuck. They're called the looney tunes. Do the same thing like kermit used to do like bugs can put on a hat and be news manners. Whatever I don't know what the idea and then and so? We started down that road. They loved it. We started down that road who loved it The CNN Peter. I think Warner Brothers. uh-huh yeah but then crucially someone higher are up at Warner Brothers swooped in Peter off and he was like this is not the bugs bunny I know and he was all we had to start over but then the great thing about it was. We ended up writing a Sitcom basically with bugs and daffy living in a house together it was very like the odd couple and it was very very very fun to write. Kristen wig played Lola. Bunny Fred Arniston played speedy Gonzales. We got some of some are funny friends to be on it. Did you feel responsibility instability. Messing around with bugs bunny now. I didn't give share. Because it's like they. They had already done but people already ruined it. That's what they always say they're like they're like these are the crown on jewels. But guess what does the Crown Jewels. They have parking signs in their parking garages. We'd like bugs bunny wearing a hard hat pointing in saying sorry. Farrah Dust Doc. It's like they've already fucking ruined him. The poor bastard is being ruined every day so there we weren't going to ruin their the great cartoons enes exists go there is no solemnity no no so you so that was fun. We wrote two seasons of a half hour Sitcom and really basically it was called the looney tunes show unmemorable title but It basically was a great writing Testing ground because like you now if you right in the real world of comedy live action. You're not gonNA write so many scripts you're GonNa be on the staff you're gonNA write like me one a season you're punching up. You're sitting in a room all day for this. We got to write fifty episodes by ourselves. And it's I that's it was huge. The amount of volume that we he wrote the episodes. Yeah Yeah it was to Caesar as technically fifty two but for some reason we quit before because because maybe Mike Tyson had come along and they wanted us on that. And Warner Brothers is like we're done with the looney tunes show. The kids don't like it and the kids couldn't they would. They would never like it. Made Him cry. We wrote it was such an adult show. We just had bugs daffy sitting in coffee shops but like we wrote it to amuse ourselves sadly But it was still a great experience and then I could have done better if it had a laugh. Track needed to tell the kids what was funny. The kids can't figure that around other kids. Yeah so it's like when they watch Disney live action nightmares. Those those horrible things they they have the fake laugh thing going all the time time. Yeah it's like they need to beat into another otherwise I think daffy duck is mean. They didn't know they could laugh at him. Here's me it's true. Here's need five real life. Heroes Meet Five. all-star adults watch brand new episodes of be real every Monday starting November eighteen only reporter You're sitting there at Warner brothers. Yeah in an office and the phone rings. No Sam Peter Comes. In and Peter was he was given a.

"This is the adults and podcast. I'm Matt Harrigan I'm at stupid buddy studios in Burbank. California home of robot chicken. We've been talking to the cast and crew all the people who make the show today writer. Hugh David he's written for a lot of crazy shows isn't it. Tell us all about it. I think being with Mike Tyson sets a different tone being with Mike Laszlo roof potent figure what are the what are the similarities their idiosyncratic. Oh yeah kind of signature people. Yeah you Kinda. I think they're one you kind of want to think they're one thing and then there's going to be something that is confusing an element that doesn't square with other parts arts and then you're like what and then you're just confused. What was your first Running with Mike Tyson her end. I'm shocked you earn this. Yes it was. When we CA- someone you didn't go you? You didn't go to that thing. The thing where we shot at his house no go to. Somebody went could that have been Walter. Maybe it was wall. Yeah That's when we got. This is the first time we get there five in the morning. Shoot in the morning. We're cartoon that's barely a cartoon that was then wanting to live action and of course we're incompetent at it and then we arrive there with. I've written massive monologues for Mike Tyson. Like like soliloquies. Not having any idea he he's not gonna be able to do these and we get there. It's one hundred and five degrees at five fifteen in the morning. It's dark and it's one hundred five degrees and this is in Las Vegas Las Vegas. It is home. We're going to shoot exterior. We're GONNA shoot him. Outside wearing sweatsuits is the plan and having a bunch of stuff that will book in the show. The show is supposed to only only have live. Action wraparound yes. kind of like a car not fat Albert Albert and everyone just assumed Mike Tyson can do this so we get there. The wife answers the door and five in the morning when he very angry. Are you nervous about ring. My Tyson's five in the morning. Yes because it just looks like a fucking housewife. And why why are you there at five and why is that. They're not someone opening the door and meeting us like nothing approaching a house and she answers the door. She's very very angry with Mike who she says has last night betrayed her trust and he was in the club's doing Lord knows what and she's very very very upset and that was the beginning of the day it was that's five. Am We shot all day. That was also. He was sweating so much. And then I watch at this local makeup artist. Take Men's Mitchum antiperspirant deodorant and rub it on his forehead and then we said action like like different sweating. She used underarm deodorant. I met you think in two thousand eight when we were shooting young person's guide to history. Maybe just before that when you're doing and saw the moment yeah all the good old days. Yeah that was the best Saul Saul was the best because I felt like I was just a writer on on that I was just a writer I had done. I had ironically auditioned for the role of saw like a year before uh-huh and I believed I had gotten the part Craig. The the the Creator told me flat out of his. He's like you're it and then it said it had to go to network for approval. Well well then I didn't get it 'cause I guess. Lhasa thought I was not the character. Like they wanted to be like like a like a Schmo guys like a a dope. Josh gu-guy but wasn't cutting I'm not a cool guy kind of a cool. I'm a crazy and then like so it's frustrating and then I then I was on the writing. Staff and Josh Gardner was him and I love Josh. Makes me laugh. Josh's crazy and the writing of that was the funniest thing thing in the world. It was like that and to me reminded me of like the same experience. When you're doing something in it's crazy and underfunded which you guys must have the whole of the beginning of adult swim from what I've read was guys experience? Yeah craziest senior funded. Yeah but it was cool. It was like it seemed you at least thought this is cool and and fun to do. You're here in this building Stephen Buddies because you're you're first writing job was on robot chicken. Yes they brought you back for the special chill that they're writing now. Yes and tell us how you got involved with robot chicken. Seth had been in those Mike. I Myers Moves The spy often Austin powers movies and the Frau Bisa is the actress. Mindy Sterling Rolling Mindy was like teacher growlings and was in the main company when I first started growling. groundlings Improv growlings Improv local. La Theater and she. Evidently Seth was putting together the against the writing staff and she said Oh I think groundlings people would I guess. She said they'd be good for this. It's sketch and they do sketch. And so he came to see a show. An improv show and I was in it coincidentally Eddie Izzard in that show but the show is very funny property izard and then Seth came up to me afterwards and he was like. Oh I would you come in and interview and I was. I was very excited. I did at the time. Think going to be an actor. I had no thought of being a writer weirdly. But as a improv person you write for yourself yes and even at growlings as you write your own sketches. So you're like you are grooming yourself at the worst to be a sketch writer. But I came into. I had a packet of sketches and gave them and then I remember very vividly. Doug Goldstein has one of the head writers at the time now still is i. Guess I don't know where he is his official title. Doug he's very blunt and you'd say impolitic but he said after eating one of my sketches. This is not funny at all. which seemed unnecessary? Could've you could've said it's very funny. Bert were not hiring and maybe worse he said it's not funny at all and then they hired me it made no sense mixed message. Yes but I very sketchy it was one of the sketches identity groundlings and I would. It would do great every weekend. It was about John Ironically. Klay even though there's like twenty years ago it was about John Bolton who is currently the but is he the National Security Advisor Twenty years ago. You're reading John Bolton's John Bolton because he was in the UN he was appointed to the UN bye. Bye Bush Bush. The son wasn't niche. Yes comedy but no one new who he was but he had he had these hilarious quotes he said he wanted to bomb the UN. He was very funny. Seem to me. It seemed like a funny guy. He's in the big now. It's not it's not anymore. People think so. You wrote a John. Bolton Sketch Goldstein said. It was terrible. Yes they hired me and then I read like a dream weird. And then I struggled I with the shortness of sketches brevity. That they were going for your. You're at long I I'm a dully paste fellow and I think even like groundlings people think I go too slow so I let alone on a show that prides itself on these ten seconds things It was a it seemed like a bad match but but I think I I was different and they found a way to make make Mike Sketches would get in I think they 'cause they're a little dylan. The different side and I don't know shit about pop culture. I'm older crucially older than Matt. And Seth and and my touchstones and memories are not quite there as I was like I feel like none of toys. They were into none of the the movies really were. We're I just been a little bit too old. So you're writing long long winded on winded unfunny catches about obscure political figures. Yeah I knew nothing about the references that they were right. I should've been a robot chicken failure but for some reason I'm I'm I I don't know what the hell it is. What do you think it was? I don't know I think I think I think I make Tom Laugh. And and Tom Helps meet figure out how to get my sketches to work on the show. Do you remember your first sketch that got in. Yeah it was like a it was a song and that's another thing I don't sing at all but for some reason I've written like four songs on robot chicken but The song it was it was about that. Legend Urban Legend in New York. Where like if a person falls and gets trapped between the subway subway and the subway platform and then their body is like somehow mushed and then they're alive fully exit create some fantasy Turner Kit and they're perfectly take time but if they pull the train away instant death so then I had my stay there and he he he? He lives out the rest of his long life breath and the he had a long happy life but but also my added thing was he didn't like his job so either though he should've had a different attitude not assume disconnected from the transformers. Yes yes yes I kind of thing and the worst part is all those songs that I've written for them because at some point had to email them. IPHONES are so you know dastardly there in my tunes so occasionally in my car if I plus shuffle I can hear my own stupid voice singing a song on robot chicken. Wow every once in a while like one and three hundred and no songs made it onto the show. They did that. One did head and.

"We are speaking with all Davidson Ali is one half of the folk duo almond and all of he has worked in animal rescue with in welfare for sixteen years. Most recently as a director of programs operations in digital marketing and currently consulting with animal groups that make a difference like the concern for helping animals in Israel, the other half of the duo is Natalie who also works in the field of animal welfare considering their work for animals. They've decided to donate a portion of the proceeds of their debut. Album to the Jackson galaxy foundation they've worked with Jackson in the past on a few projects into their happy to be able to generate exposure for his foundation. All I want to welcome you to the show. Great to be your Stacey. Thank you. So ali. How did you get started an animal welfare and getting involved with community cats? You know, it's it was pretty organic for my whole life. I've been I was raised with animals when I was a kid. My grandma had dogs for cats apparent and my goal every time I spent the night or house was to have them all sleep with me in the same bed. Not the parent, of course, with the many of the other animals possible. So I've had this I guess love of animals my whole life. And as I got older, I started walking dogs in my early twenties. And just just the idea of caring for other animals than got me thinking what else what else could I do within the ama- Walter field. And I found a job at a local animal shelter to. Work in the clinic pilling animals giving them fluids. And then from there just kind of worked my way up through the ranks of animal welfare in found myself as like you mentioned, the director programs operations digital marketing and through my time in working with animals animal welfare.
