The 7 mindsets of connectors
"To another episode of industry thought leader podcast brought to you by industry thought leader kademi stand out the heard and influence on your highest and recross also known as the podcasting quyen. Now my guest today says the simple truth. Is this connectors find. Great success in life. And if you don't realize it yet we are now living in the age of networking. So do you want to increase your influence and impact by becoming a better connector but join no way to start with. Today's guest is going to show you. How join me on the show. Today is michelle letterman. Michelle is an accomplished speaker trainer. Approach an author of four books including the internationally recognized the levin laws of likability She was named by forbes as one of the twenty five professional networking experts to watch and a former ny professor financial executive and recovering cpa. She now works with organizations and individuals to help them build real relationship. The greater results through the company executive essentials now on today show. Michelle is going to share. Why do we need to be connected. The seven levels of connectors as well as the seven mindset of connectors. Welcome to the show. Michelle thanks for having me on. We know and of probably heard through business. That networking is so so important. But i love the way that you've said we're now living in the age of networking. It's so more important than it ever was and so today. We're really going to dive into to connecting. And what is a connector and those seven levels but what interested you. You've got a great background diverse background. What was it specifically around networking and connecting. That attracted you that now. You really specializing in that area. I always say. I teach all the mistakes ever made so that you don't make them too and i used to be that polarizing personality that's where my research started around like ability to understand. What was it that was doing that was causing either them to love me or to hate me but there wasn't a whole lot of in between and really understanding how does connection form and what enables connections to happen but what i started to learn. Was that my results. Drastically changed when. I took a relationship partisan Approach right and that's what a connector is somebody who prioritize relationships in all their interactions professional personal. It doesn't matter the relationship comes. i mean. obviously you're going to talk a little bit about. Why be connected. You've just established. It's so important to do that. Relationships what are some of the things before we dive into the seven levels of connectors. What are the things that you want us to be aware of. That might be because of what's happened in the world now while some of the things that people are still doing that would have been okay and and where you know something that we would do in the past but really moving forward into twenty twenty one. We need to realize that this is not helping us to be that connector. That person who are attracting air ideal clients and stakeholders. What are some things that we need to be aware of. Don't do this moving forward the what not to do. There's one thing in it's really interesting. This book came out in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred and in two thousand twenty there has been a lot around the the social inequality and social injustice and there's a whole section on the book about diversifying and expanding our connections and it's great to know everybody in a certain fields or everybody a certain geographic region. It's even better when we can go broad. And when we diversify our connections we make better decisions. We have more access to information. We are further up on the connector spectrum. So what other. Things we don't want to do is we. Don't want to call out the differences. We want to call out the similarities because the differences are often obvious between us but the similarities are things that we have to look for and one of the ways to be more inclusive. Connector is to think about focusing on the similarities calling out the larry's it's not about distinguishing or disregarding those differences but that that's not where we need to start. That's not where we need to focus. It's interesting you should say that because there's been a couple of times where i've reached out to someone here in melbourne with. Just come out of area tight lockdown. So the may it's been very intentional in networking linked gin and it's interesting because some people reach and say well actually you'll not my ideal clients keeping that i've been in fray and i'm thinking well i might not your ideal client but i talked to a lot of people around the globe connected to people such as michelle let him and who is a specialist an expert in this area. And so that's the kind of thing you talking about. Is the giant. Just be so focused narrow minded. Because you just don't know who that person is connected to and can you up to a whole new area of people. Yes that's exactly it. I have always been against this networking. I'm like it. Has the word working who wants to do it. And when i was writing the most recent book the connectors advantage. My brother-in-law came into office. And he said well. What's the difference with networking in connector. And i said networking something that you do a connector. That's who you are. And that's the shift. I want people to make rather than doing something and and when we tend to network for need and we network for now and it is very narrowly focused as you said but when we think about just connecting and building relationships because we want to because we get to then we have this really firm and tight community that you can call upon and i gotta tell you it was people. I went to business school. That you got me a client at the moma and my sister's boyfriend from middle school got me into nbc so it isn't about strategic networking. It isn't about well. I don't wanna talk to you because you can't do anything for me. It's being social and curious which is one of the mindsets it's being open and accepting it's enjoying the connection for the sake of connection and knowing that the rest will follow.
LCS to Drop Spring and Summer Splits in Favor of One Long Season
"After covering the winners of worlds and the new look. elsie k. we learned. Thanks to reporting for travis stafford that the lcs is taking on a new structure as well as eastport has driven by two separate splits for years. The spring split has its own schedule and playoffs leading into msi and then the summer split starts over with a new record. A new regional playoffs at worlds for a long time. The league of legends community has critiqued. The spring split really doesn't matter that much and it looks like riot might agree frankly. It's also a little bit confusing to people who aren't in the league of legends world. The have two regular seasons with one world so rights changing instead of spring and summer it will be one long season a link travis's video underneath this episode. Here's a lot more information. I won't be able to fit into these two minutes. Midseason invitational or msi will still exist for the lcs. They'll just do a random spring tournament in the middle of the season to figure out which teams qualified as every other region is keeping the spring and summer splits. At least as far as we know right now it stands to reason that riot would test out this new structure with the lcs before making it a permanent structure of other regions in the future. They did something similar with a long term partnership franchising model as well. One thing we do know about this season according to travis is that teams will play more in the previous format teams. Play each other twice in summer twice spring but now they will play five matches against every other team that makes for forty five game season not counting the mid season tournament or playoffs. There's also apparently a preseason tournament according to travis but he didn't have any more details. I believe they're also revitalizing the amateur system with an upcoming third tier below in kademi level. In fact if you saw the cloud nine signing of a young player c nine. Ceo alluded to a new structure for underneath the lcs. Although wasn't entirely clear what he was talking about while fourteen year olds like the one cloud nine side can't compete in the lcs they may create special provisions for these amateur circuits and see just jumped the gun a bit to try and snatch up a young talent again all info in this podcast is source from travis and i encourage you to watch his video
Fostering A Culture In Talon - With Sean Zhang - CEO & Cofounder at Talon Esports
"Really true. So what other question then see said that you're operating seven different teams is that will under the banner or multiple different brands. It's all under the talent umbrella. The only one that's slightly finished the PSG talent league of legends team in Taiwan but they're all under the talent umbrella we have. The same consistent approach when it comes to remain performance management approaching. The second half of this year has actually been incredible. The games that we're in we're close to being I or delivering championships super excited by. But yeah, it's all under the talent umbrella consistent sort of performance management. and. That's why we've been able to have good results across all titles verses like. Other teams might sponsor teams where they basically have existing teams and just whack the logos onto it but we're not believe is that because we feel like you know the culture that you drive the value that you drive and the ideas around the philosophy. I think us to be controlled by us because that's the value that we provide. Right. So for example, we have the play come in I. Want Him to be able to think all the team I want him to be able to take feedback I want him to be somewhat humble and I want him to have the good work ethic because if you don't have those things as know as well like you know doing a lot of sport, Jiu Jitsu and weightlifting if you don't have those basic things in sport and the same in East sports. Impossible to be successful, and so for us, it's like we want to control that and also having we've made the mistake before just sponsoring teams then just like we can't control likes. How often their training? What time they waking up other following systems because often they're not and then you get really mixed results since we found that doing it ourselves, controlling it ourselves without coaches are sort of systems that we have in place to control things. Is actually a lot better because it reads a lot more consistency just one of the main thing. Interesting yeah I mean it you know it's obviously worked for guys pretty well in illegal agents and I guess like. I think it's good study for anyone to look at like the golden five and six one point six with like Mayo and Cuban and lauded and pags era. You know these guys will except for Pasha. Those guys were together for the best part of Ten Years Hall Unin Pasture I think for maybe six or through everything through when there with A. Box when was vote as pro with whatever I say came from says one point six into sky and to retain like that you could say that a Lotta this strategy because they're attained wasted a lot when I was a semi pro player, their strategy was to make it a three v three situation always win because I been together for so long they synergy was so great. So in the clutches in the trays fully foles they in advantage when it comes to the situation, they are pips boot machine because otherwise like. It with my team Sammy pertain that I had in Australia without reaching those hots we always had trouble getting a fifth plan for exactly the same reason you talking about we had full people who are very on the same wavelength we were all massive nodes is in we used to study the game like mad more. So than anyone else in that Thomas especially and we very tight knit but we always had trouble finding that fifth and when we finally found that right fee who had skill to were able to qualify for a life whatever that we played, but it's interesting to say you're saying that you know it's the. It's definitely not the way that most teams attacking it. If if at all, they'll build it around one stop Playa saw an article come out from Tame sacred say saying if you were to do it again, would you do it the same way? He said Yep the way that I did it in the why do it again was? One of the best players in the world or the best poppy, and then it'd be able to tame around him and that's what we saying value right now you know they'll pick up. Ace Blitz Organization will announce the new roster, which is actually is one. Inside they're going to build around that I. Did. You know anyone else in the market doing what you guys are doing in that respect. In our region. I know I know like, for example, like the the Korean teams have very much orientated towards like. They find their own talent. In, talent out I think there's a good academy system. They're both fully legends and overwatch. I think within like Hong Kong Taiwan. In some but I think honestly, this sort of our our speed, let's say we take an example right? We got into that game November of last year. We got a first championship in the first six months we won the MSS which like a an event between Vietnam. We lost the final this time, which was a little bit disappointed qualified for well. If I, compared to some of the other teams should talk them a little bit but like. They've been around for like five seven years and never got a championship within the LMS or within the region, which is l. combined to become the yes and so i WanNa say think that what we're doing in. Like. It makes a difference because it shows that we're able to speed up very quickly and we were able to basically bring together a bunch of guys like the guys that we have with illegal. Of course, they gripe plays individually. Bebel meshed together into something that. They've been at previous teams like our juggler. Midland is we're at previous teams in the lms that never won championships, but they came here and they won championships and even overwatch team yesterday Korean contenders. Top of Group A we went through trials we came from Pacific where no nineteen bunch of players that people thought these guys will as bins and they played a big success. But came to us, and then we've been put our approach to coaching into it. Now, they like really would play collectively as an individual. So I think like for us one of the biggest things I think which is on his all the coaches that we hire like we get guys like want to die basically full the team and work incredibly hard. Also WanNa be like fathers. Because in the end, it's like if you look at it top coach, it makes everything difference and if we have the same philosophy around. Work work ethic ability to take feedback being humble. All those things just add up and I think. A lot of emphasis on that I think we've put a lot more emphasis than any other team at least within our. Region saying, Korea, a lot of teams are doing a really good job when it comes to Kademi building talent. Yeah I feel like. Just sponsoring the team. It's just like kids. Yeah. It's hot. You know this too much room for lock and in our business it's like we want to be able to deliver championship because right now at this stage when all the biggest sports team in the world where like to small to medium size one, one of the best. Methodologies is to deliver championship. Boca, seeing a lot more on that
"kademi" Discussed on Insureblocks
"Kind of that you have within the future foundation. How much? How much do they work between each other or are? They fairly isolated I would imagine there's there's quite a bit of room for collaboration between all of them. Absolutely, there's a lot of room for collaboration. And even though it seems like they're quite distinctive away we work very closely together a lot of the work that we do in in the research department goes into. You know obviously development of courses. Let's say in that Kademi. As well as the development of pilots and other more practical applications of technology and. Dealing with them, solving particular challenges from the government in our forth unit, which is the platform unit, so there's a lot of collaboration. There's also things that come out of pilots that we've been seeing need more governance and then kind of come back to us, so it's definitely a cycle. I think throughout the five. I'm curious also because. The United Arab always has had this kind of. Brand image of being technology. Embracing and having this on the feature, where did that come from? I think that's actually from the the beginning of of the formation of the country. From nineteen seventy-one. Even there's been a lot of. A lot of quick kind of adapting, let's.

Nick Saviano from world the renowned Saviano Tennis Academy
"Hi Nick Welcome to the Functional Tennis podcast pleasure to be here. I've been meaning to get you on the show while we have your honor top academies around the world page which is probably one of our most viewed pages on the website. So it's great to of see. We've the Blurb Rebecca Academy and all the details would. It's great to speak to the main mind as well so delighted to chat which tell me how is life at the moment with all this cove? It situation has DECAPA me gone well. Unfortunately we have had to shut the academy down at least temporarily as all the Kaddoumi's in Florida have done and I guess around the World. But we've been able to stay in touch with our players and we are poised and ready to go as soon as they open. Things are coming in the next week or two. So we're pretty excited to get back out on the courts and fully functioning. Well that's great news. You haven't locked all your players in Lake. Rafeh did no. I didn't know he locked them all in but no we have not done that in a lot of our players actually are here with emily members or they're at private housing so we're good to go. He had me. Did Inscribe live with I think was Andy Murray Sane? Whenever they got closed down whoever was stuck there had to stay there. Nobody's lead in or out so he's running a tight ship over there. Well you have to. Whenever you're dealing with. Young people is enormous responsibility. So you always have to err on the side of caution. Yes no true. It's different when you're entrusted by parents to do the best for the kids so I think you're right. It's really important. So tell me a bit of empty Kademi. How long has the KADEMI being an operation? Well I started the academy shortly after leaving the US. Ta at the US was a national coach for boys tennis. I was eventually director coaching for men's tennis for the United States. I played on the tour for nine years and then I was also the head of high performance coaching education which was really actually exciting and then after that when I left I opened the academy in two thousand and three in. I started working with a few players I decided I really wanted to go out on my own and established my own methodology and a lawsuit for coaching and working with young people. So way back then. Two thousand three. That's when we started and it went extremely well and some of the believe it or not some of the first people I was working with were jan-michael Gambill. And also Vince Spadea. And also very young. Eleven year old. Sloan Stevens came a few years later and Jeannie Bouchard and Monica Point Again. A lot of other really good players started evolving or coming. And so it's been really exciting. It's been an amazing experience. Actually over the years up really really enjoyed it. Let's just cut back a bit before the academy and before. Usda tour life. You're a top fifty player. What was it like in the late seventies being a top fifty player? It was an amazing experience. I was one of the top. Juniors in the United States at the end of the year is ranked tree in the country. Then was the top recruit going into college so I wanNA going to Stanford. University was an all American there my freshman and sophomore year. Then I turned pro but back then I was one hundred thirty two in the world when Charon pro took me only four months and I was in the top hundred so the depth and the game wasn't quite the same as it is now so in one respect it was. Let's say less of a long grind to get into the top one hundred but on the other hand the rewards weren't as great nowadays. The players go to phenomenal hotels. They get paid and qualifying. The money is great. I remember I got around sixteen. At Wimbledon twice and the specific number I remember was four thousand pounds now. Four THOUSAND POUNDS. That probably is about seven or eight thousand dollars. Not even that much and today. I'm not sure what the guys in the gals paid for a fourth-round let's say Wimbledon. But I would suspect it's probably in the two hundred thousand range so money has changed a lot but it's more than just the money the quality of the way everything runs on the tour the ability to communicate with people. You know you have the phones. You have computers when I was playing. We didn't have cell phones. Believe it or not so completely different world when you went away for six weeks you really were far away. It was tough to get phone calls back with your families and so is a different way of life back then than it is now and I enjoyed it. I love playing the Grand Slams but I retired at twenty eight years old. I spent about eight and a half years on the tour and when I retired I was still in the top hundred for singles and doubles. I was recently married and we had our first child and when my first child was born. Nicole our daughter that was it. I said I'm done and I'm going to get a head start on the rest of my career which turned out to be coaching. Those a good decision and tell me what was your most memorable match. Great question one of the most memorable matches I ever had was in England. At Wimbledon I was playing a match against Pat Dupre. Who was a semi-finalist the year before and I believe at the time was ranch around twelve in the world and the day before I played buster macho from England and he was number one British player and I remember having served to save the match five or six times so I one nine seven in the fifth set and so I had to come out the next day and play again against Patty pray and this match was in cold fog long match and I remember my body aching and wound up winning at one. Twelve ten in the fifth set and I remember just kind of overcoming the exhaustion and at ten all eleven ten. I was ahead and I finally got a break point and I remembered to this day thinking okay. Should I go for this and ripped return because you know I just can't seem to break and this is one opportunity so I cheated thinking he was going to hit back in he did and I happened to hit it? Just right and boom. It was a winner and thank goodness over. I had a couple long matches. In Wimbledon at one with Brian Godfrey four in the world and that took either three or four days to complete believe it or not and I was down two sets to love and five two and it was almost nine o'clock at night the US keepers. Were all there waiting to the targets of the courts. So they're waiting for me to lose so I was down two point quickly. Want Upholding Sur. Five three and I played one of the best games of my life. Five four I bright serve. I hold sir. I break him and win the set then because we were there late. They didn't put me on I the next day and so they had a women's match on it rained a lot that day so that was a Friday. We only got like five games in so then pushed us over till Saturday but of course we were onto cords till very late again and so they didn't put us on ride again so we wound up playing one set and then it got dark again and then of course Sunday play so then we have to wait and then on Monday morning we played. We've finished the match and it had a happy ending. I one six one fits so those were my two good memories of Wimbledon long matches that stood out.
Alexander Waske: Tour Coach and Academy Owner
"High Alexander Functions. Tennis podcast thank you great to have you on board are I. Came across of the Alexander Voskan Tennis University as I saw on bags around some tournaments. I saw some coaches walking around two bags. I'd never heard of it before and I was always curious so I went off and did some research and this was last year so I've been falling ever since I've posted some your videos. I have you on our academy our top academy lists so it's great to finally speak to you. Thanks for that like just going to your resume. So you've worked with some cray players to pass speed caregiver meltzer Haas Bryan Curtis and even. Now you're working with some great players on especially let's say on the juniors who working with Yoenis four Tek who won grand slams last year such a great junior strokes are amazing anytime we posted on functional tennis. It's really amazing on. You're also working with a couple of the players on the Belgium Davis Cup team lower still lower Bella Mons on. Yeah few more. You're doing you're busy not me. We are a team here. So it's it's not me. We're working together with a couple of professionals here. So tennis coaches fitness coaches therapists. It's always a team effort here. Tell me cut me. Where's IT based in Germany? We Are Approximately fifteen to twenty minutes from Frankfurt Airport which is in my opinion great location as the International Airport. Gets you anywhere in the world and mostly direct flights? So you're in the center of Europe with Germany and Frankford is the center of or the middle of Germany so it's easy for us too excess anything here in Europe and even long fights I mean everything or usually everything has direct so we save a lot of time. By by this and also frankfort spend my hometown. So I've been I grew up here. I know the area Illinois everything here. So that's why we here. It's great to be in such a central. He'll be juniors playing tennis Europe term and Sir. Itf Tournaments Futures Challenges could hope to be. There's so much going on in Europe and also for the flights as you mentioned but tell me about Your Academy your facility. How many courts you have. What's your setup like? They're always thought of two thousand and ten. I started very very tiny. We had one player and one coach We built this from scratch. We are here working at the Federation. We have four. Indoor rebound ace courts we outdoor rebound escorts and then outdoors. We have also a five day. Courts we have a gym. We have ten rooms to sleep For people that come in for a weekly base now. We have other options for our long-term customers that can save an hour to you house. That is a bit outside of the sites and Ben. We have other apartments as well so everything is basically here on site visit therapy and everything that we need. The restaurant So yeah it's it's not the largest site we can't compare this to the large European academies like more talk no and Ross. We look for very high quality on our courts I think which even that so far I think the small academy the Smaller Academy sorry not too big more look more commercially cutting small and seem to have a better more family atmosphere on something you mentioned. Is You like to build character in the players? You work which can you tell me what you mean by building character with your players. You know if you're getting young people in here. Having a lot of influence has left rights errands media friends other players and so on at the end of the day. I believe that's building a good character and I'm gonNA come back to. That will make them successful people. Nobody can guarantee professional career of them making millions of euros in stuff like this but if they are hot working if they are focused if the discipline if they work hard on reaching their goals if they take a setback if they take a loss get back up on their on their feet and try it again and again and again and again. This kind of character will succeed in life so I think that our number one priority or our number one job is to create personalities that will succeed in life and then they will always be happy that they've been here No matter hulk with a end up in Tennessee great. And how do you do you give me an example? So we set clear rules It's also a lot about talking to the kids making them understand why we do certain things and for ten years. I've been busting my Thoughts to get an atmosphere here where everybody works hard and all the kids that we have now and I'm really happy about this really into getting better so you can always spend your whole day playing computer games. You can spend your whole day going out at night drinking Blah Blah Blah or you generate an atmosphere where everybody works hard and if there's one kid that does work hard the other kids don't want to practice with him because it's it's also for their benefits for their practice so I think that we Getting there that the intensity here is very high that there's a clear plan of how they play and that they really spend time with their game. They're strokes and a half to write a journal of what they've learned throughout the day. They have to visualize nights what they've done and the next steps that are there. We make individual plans for them. We make individual schedules and at the end of the day. You also need to have time for for the if you have fifty players to take care of at the same time. It's a zoo. So our coaches have four to six players that they take care of and I don't think that they can do more so that they have enough time to to talk to the plan to also know what kind of personality they are and what. They're struggling with what they're all right. Now tell me if somebody if I want to apply to come to your Kademi what you look for players that send you emails to say they. WanNa come train with you. What we don't do is we don't sign any contracts through the Internet. We don't do that. We have to meet the player. Find out if it's a fits. We want to see if we really like working with that player and at the other on the other hand the player has to tell. I mean usually. It's the parents that also behind this The player has to say this is where I WANNA be. This is the best place in the world. I don't want to go anywhere else and we can find a way but I I want to very very clear and strong commitment for this and this place is not perfect for everybody. I mean this other academies out there that are doing a fantastic job and Certain personalities will like this here and other personalities will prefer something else through your right if you try and fit everybody in. I think you're structures all over the place. I agree if you WanNa make you happy. You're going to generate a mess. They're going to have strict rules. I mean we are German so if you come one second late for practice your practice is over. It's it just doesn't happen you run for today. Yeah we also worked very early in the morning at seven thirty. We organized in structure. As Germs. Do Things and this is a strength. We are probably the worst dancers and other countries. Show us. How the Party will we? We're good at other things one of my best friends. Fabian is a chairman on definitely knows how to party. I didn't learn. Jeremy travelled a bit so definitely did a stint in the states. I think that's re- picked it up so you start early tomorrow to. What's a typical day so for your? Let's say for your teenagers. There's no real tip of the day because when you run a period as Asian you have weeks where you work really hard. And then you have weeks where you worked less and you regenerate more so we work up to ten sessions a week if the players practice full than they have a Monday and Tuesday where they have two sessions into fitness sessions on Wednesdays. They have Tennis session one session. Thursday Friday again to each Saturdays one tennis and Yoga. That's a tough week here but again we also have other weeks where we watched that the players are doing more mobility or region more stretching more. Physiotherapy it really depends on what's a but the week is planned for them. Take a lot of boxes there. The one thing I know. Is that the coaches care here. They really work hard. Some of them travel twenty to twenty five weeks a year with the players to tournaments. They really care. And that's what I really like Nobody here looks at the clock. All the time and says Lesson is op. I always say don't teach lessons. We coach players and different thing for me. So Time. Watching a bad characteristic. If two people are counting the time I know one player we feature quite a bit in the past two years is Yoenis four tech. He trains with you and he was world number one junior last year. One Grand Slams. How long has he been trained in? What you almost six years now. At that time we didn't really have a junior program and he was recommended to us and we had to look at him and I fell in love right away and I knew that this was probably the best hand eye coordination that I've ever seen in my life. So yeah just jump in there. Did you see the video with the wooden spoon? Yahoo hasn't I mean one of the most popular videos intenders. I would say so. You know what I'm GonNa send you a video just for you and you can post it on your side. Where he hits were the wooden stake now. Oh yes that is amazing. You can see on that. Looks like and then we have another junior now. Who's twelve and he was hitting really well with it and he did it with. Jonas and Jonas told me Alex I think the guy's better with a wooden stick me now because I haven't hit with it for a while so I think that was quite
Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
The Recording Academy is imploding the week before the Grammys
"Welcome to the frame John Horn Sexual Harassment Arabe and denial claims of corrupt practices. No it's not a new soap opera. It's what the recording academy is dealing with just a few you days before. It's big event the Grammy Awards last week. The academy put its president and CEO. Deborah Dugan on administrative leave yesterday she filed a sexual harassment and discrimination complaint against the Recording Academy for more on the latest developments. WE TURN TO GEM AS WAD senior music editor at variety jam. Cham- welcome back to the show. Thank you so if we believe everything that was in the complaint which was filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Listen on behalf of Dugan one of the most remarkable allegations in well the the allegations sorta go in two directions. They're the ones against her personally. She says she was sexually harassed by a very prominent attorney who works closely with with the academy. She said that her ideas for changes were opposed by the board and top executives at the academy. And you know speaking with sources close to the situation. I'll say she didn't really fit in and it was a challenging doing situation for now having said that the complaint alleges is that there are all kinds of kind of insider deals going on inside inside the academy it alleges that people who are connected with certain artists are voting on nominating committees and financially the doesn't allege this is actually a fact the academy which has no in-house lawyer is paying millions and millions of dollars every year to outside law firms for work worked. She deemed unnecessary and sources say and her complaint alleges that she went into a meeting gave a big presentation about changes she planned to make which included stopping or at least dramatically cutting back payments to those law firms and three weeks later she was put on administrative leave. So let's look at a couple issues here. Hear the Recording Academy says that Dugan was shown the door or put on administrative leave because of the way she treated the former assistant to port. Now what does dougans defense of that issue. Her complaint says that is untrue that is inaccurate. And if you look at the academy's claims the public claims that they've made there are a lot of explosive words. Used the upshot of what they're saying is that she was mean and you know I mean. Do you remove move your top executive ten days before the big show because she was mean to somebody you know I mean it's just it strains credulity a bit especially if that executive we're not a woman and Dugan's complaint says the allegations are true. They say that the person in question was not. I'm not up to the job that she expected her and she was trying to find another place for in the organization in the EEOC complaint Dugan makes a couple of very explosive charges. One involves a rape allegation against her predecessor. Neil port now and the other describes some inappropriate behavior of not outright sexual actual harassment by Joel Katz. Who is a top lawyer that works with the recording academy what specifically she alleging for both port now and cats the allegation against port? Now this is an actual rape allegation. Apparently a foreign. That was the word they used. Female singer Songwriter on writer. WHO's in the KADEMI member who performed at Carnegie Hall you know? He admitted there was an allegation. He said it was it investigated and he was exonerated now. Presumably he was was investigated by the Academy in terms of her own claim of sexual harassment. She says that Before she had even started just a couple of weeks after she had signed a deal to become. CEO Joe Joe Cats took her out to dinner somewhere in Laguna Beach and she alleges she put the moves on her. We're talking with riders. Jim Aswa about what is going on inside. The Recording Academy so Porno said the rape allegations are outrageous terribly hurtful and untrue. A lawyer for Joel Katz said he categorically denies the sexual assault or harassment allegations. What does the Academy said? The academy has not responded and as of right now typically to the allegations. When it came out yesterday I went to them? Asked for a comment immediately. It took about an hour and all they did was basically regurgitate the accusations they had made about Dugan the day before and over the preceding couple of days they have happening addressed the other allegations and they may not. I mean that's the last question there are allegations and Dugan's EEOC complaint about how white and male leadership leadership and voting is inside the academy. But something that really caught my eye. I'm GonNa read a paragraph from the complaint is this. The board uses these committees. These are nominating committee for the grammys as an opportunity to push forward artists with whom they have relationships indeed it is not unusual for artists who have relationships with board remembers and who ranked at the bottom of the initial twenty artists to end up receiving nominations. So what that is suggesting is that the grammy nominating automating process itself is suspect that to me is the thing that should most concern the public. A lot of the rest of this stuff is inside baseball and and you no very legitimate complaints but you know that depends on how much you care about the makeup of the recording academy the fact that the nominations are skewed is something that has been suspected for a while because every year there are these kind of mysterious nominations that appear in certain categories. And you know those of us who watch is this. You know we've heard of most of these artists you know every year you'll just be like who would that and you know we might find out that a producer and engineer is on the nominating committee. The median Oh hey look there asong that album that they produced or engineered there. It is an old look also on the committee is someone who works at that label So Oh you know that sounds horrible. It doesn't necessarily have to be because the other side of it is the fact that the people who are good enough to get on the nominating committees prominent enough to be working with a lot of these artists. However I'm not saying that's the case all the time gem as Wad is senior music editor at variety gem? Thanks so much for coming on the show
Breaking Down the Oscar Nominations
"Oscar nominations were announced and and there were just some shocking surprises. Yeah a few good a few bad a lot of them late too stuff. We talked about over the past year here on this podcast so Um I think overall though if to me if like aside for a couple of things that are like wow that's great it does feel a little bit like business as usual to me maybe even a little bit like business as like worse than usual I mean a little bit of a step back and some very significant in profound ways yes I think the biggest thing people are talking about of course is that There were no women directors. Yes that were nominated right Mostly acting categories were devoid of people of Color. I think the the one saving grace I believe was Cynthia Erazo you've been nominated in the action category for Harriet but then everybody else was white right. which is I mean? I mean that's like I said business as usual I'll say it but now it definitely seems like even more like it swung back the other way right. Yeah it seemed like they'd been in progress in previous years One thing about the Oscar. Nominations has always been kind of like A. We've examined them and talk about them and always complain about how. Why are Michelle to April reign as tag Oscar so white One of our one of our past and favorite guests. Yeah fuck us But you know what I pushing it from nation American perspective and looking at films you know I always woke up on Oscar morning and looked at the nominations and being like. I'm not going to be disappointed because I'm not. I'm not expecting for anything I need to get knocked down. There was there was nothing of note that could have was on. You know any of the Academy's radar to be nominated in the first place so that was always kinda finally well it. It must be nice to actually have something to be disappointed. That didn't get nominated. You know But that was the case it so but in previous in his last couple of years as we've talked about a lot we've seen like a the rise of a lot of talent really great Things have turned heads in Hollywood and then contenders legitimate contenders. Absolutely and then now this morning. We'll like Oh gets that was the on anybody's radar and it was all a dream. Yeah but you know. That's that's exactly right. In order to be disappointed you have to have hope to begin with and I think in past years there wasn't hope because we legitimately generally looked at the field in the. We're not films that felt like they could contend. That weren't big enough films and weren't there weren't visible enough parts for actors. There were not it's there's certainly weren't creators producers sometimes right but rarely director is rarely certainly rarely People in in the top acting categories. Yeah occasionally got thrown some bones right like some screenplays or technical craft type stuff for you you know supporting roles and usually but a lot of the time whereas like international actors. Ya You know the the rink Okouchi's of you know of yesteryear. But but yes that is correct and you know what's interesting is that I think we're we're seeing this from the lens now. Not just of a robust emergence in Hollywood of It kind of like diverse normal Sensibility right think where I think really the last five years or so and honestly I. I'M GONNA give April a fair amount of credit for this right you. You know the idea that it is not it is not business. It shouldn't be business as usual anymore. Yeah for there to be diversity. In the LINEUPS and diversity in the nominations diversity in the winners is a really recent phenomenon. I don't think that we were having these conversations before right like a a decade ago every being white was you know it was just the way things were so we went through this period in which that was less normal maybe not normal even now it feels feels not normal. There's there's a a conversation pushing back against it. which is heartening but for us as Asian Americans especially especially I think would complicates it is our real? Emergence has been literally just like the last three or four years right. People still talk about the post craze rotations era right and that was only a year ago two years ago years ago just just over two. Yeah but you know so the last two years and change Because you know this I'm still going to give a little credit to fresh off the boat. You know sort of changing the weather a little bit right We we're still in a flush of Getting used to the fact that we could be and should be disappointed So Oh and that'll said the other side of is global effect right. She mentioned international films. Where we're finally in a place where there's a strong recognition that for film to truly successful? It has to be successful around the world in the biggest market in the world is now China and much of the rest of Asia is now also emerged to a point where you can make money on a film in a country that is not the United States and that isn't in Europe right and A carnal example that for instance. This is Searching Right Oh which you know was a low budget film. It would've made money just the United States but it made most of its money in Korea. Oh Aw like twenty million dollars believe right and it just proves that there's a different business model possible and went business. Shifts Sodas creativity right because because people start building stuff telling stories and casting people with an eye towards winning other eyeballs and markets. So we'll we'll gather we'll have to come back to that discussion discussion because there's a couple of glaring examples. Where where you would? Maybe outsiders thought that movie my dwell in China but it did not. Oh yeah actually yes. In fact I mean I it's not it's not necessarily a slam slam. Dunk that if you cast Asian especially with with an asian-american projects. Yeah that they will be successful abroad. Nevertheless the algorithm them as being developed against what I'd say so all that said let's get down to split. Yeah I think the first thing we well well. How do you want to do this? Do we want to talk about this from the lens of our old favorite the good the band the WPF. Let's just do it that way. I think when we keep it pretty broad to do just pick one and we can we can. We can talk about a couple of goods and bats. Let's just let's just do you think makes them look right. Jeff you want explain the good the bad than W I will. So if you pay attention for the last How many episodes are we done? Now it's been almost a year though since I joined the pot I think it was right after CIA Lunar New Year. So yeah so so when the rolls around the real new all right so As you may know again from listening to podcasts hopefully with great loyalty over over the past eight episodes The good the bad the WF is our signature segment our favorite segments. Or you know we take roundtable approach to a topic We look at it from the Glens. First of what is good would make us feel warm and fuzzy inside about it then what is bad. What shocks appalls US revolts US angers us about it and finally? WT F. The big question marks the the things were still puzzled by and of course we're GONNA good bad T.F. The Oscar nominations and more broadly early perhaps the award season. And what they all. What a says about asian-americans perhaps and And this industry And I guess because we don't have I guess it's just us I'M GONNA throw it to you Phil I to give us a a some goods of course You Know Nick. Please chime in as well and we'll go through the ways as usual all right so for good Well I mean and obviously the the big one for me parasite Tarasov y'all in previous episodes of determines like the best movie of the year. Maybe many yeah. Yeah Yeah. Yeah yeah bongos masterpiece. It racked up six. Nominations including best foreign language. Film was a foregone foregone conclusion. It's got that locked up right. Yeah but you know. Also the big whale Best Picture Miss Writer best director the screenplay and then a couple of technical ones you know. And you're like it's you know I feel like in a lot of ways It's one of those movies. That was Kinda like it was undeniably undeniably a favorite to be nominated. You know if if it hadn't would have been sort of like that would have been the biggest like headlines morning you know so The fact that got nominee for best picture is a foreign language film does not unprecedented. But it's pretty big deal. Yeah I mean. There's no way I can get away with. Not Saying that is also my good. That's it is it is certainly the best thing Not least because it was a little bit surprising. Maybe not to everybody but to me I I was pessimistic enough that I thought they might throw him a director bone. You know I mean it's a big bone they might they might have Nominated a bong director but it seems so likely they would just push parasite into best international and then kind of save the category for for films about anxiety ridden and or aging white dude redden and you know again. That's the just like the the cynicism of many many years watching this stuff So for the Kademi to embrace this film I think It it it pretends you know something I it's that whole notion of like the internationalization of this industry I think a little bit but also it's a fucking great that's that's that's what it is undeniable undeniable. It's like you. It's that good right you in best picture conversations from the get-go right. It wasn't wasn't just about the foreign language film you know so The fact that That budget hole got nominee for director is pretty big deal. I mean he's he's been a favorite director rector of mind for a long time and for a lot of people's But this is his masterpiece hundred
The 2020 Oscar Nominations Din't Have To Look Like This
"We now know who was nominated for this year's Academy Awards and who wasn't there were no women pick for the directing Oscar and only one person of color. Harriet Stars Cynthia. Rio was among the twenty acting nominees. He's but what if like Hollywood does in a few movies. There was an alternate history to the Oscars. Franklin Leonard wrote about his imagined Academy Award nominations for the Washington Post. He's the creator of the blacklist an annual compilation of much admired but unpredicted movie scripts Franklin. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me the back. So we're not so sad. Your column is almost funny. It could have been a satirical piece from the onion. What motivated it? Well here's here's the interesting thing right like it. It didn't necessarily need to even be ready satire if anything you know. The article was written as a as a list of all of the people could reasonably have been nominated in place of those who got nominated and I think that there are additional people. That aren't even mentioned in the article. who also could have gotten reasonably? We nominated and no one would have batted an eye except for the fact that it would have been unusual that all the nominees people of color that all of the directing on these women which you know is so far from our reality only because history would suggest that all the nominees should be white and all the directors should be met. Well let's talk about that right. Because there was a lot of great artistic accomplishment from people who weren't nominated I think about hustlers from Lorraine Skafar you on the star Jennifer Lopez Lulu Wong the director of the Farewell Greta Gerwig who made little women performances by Alfie Woodard and clemency Aquafina and farewell the entire cast a parasite right nominated for best picture. None of the actors were so. What's the disconnect in your mind between the great work and the recognition or lack of recognition of that? Great Work Work. I mean the short answer is racism and sexism in the intersection between the two. I think that there is a fundamental lack of appreciation for the work of women directors and the work of Actors of Color. I mean I. I saw it in on my twitter timeline. And yesterday people saying Oh Jennifer for Lopez wasn't really acting playing herself you know and I think there's an assumption that you know the actors in parasite or somehow that's just who they are. They're not actually performing. If you've been in a room with a with Song King Ho you know that that was a heck of a performance. So I think that the assumptions and the appreciation and the value that we give to these performances into these directing Sort of accomplishments is diminished. Because of. WHO's doing it? Someone told me you know. Why are you trying to inject politics politics into these decisions? And it's not that I'm trying to inject politics into it is the politics are already in it. I'd like to see them removed or at least an acknowledgement the extent to which the politics there. We're talking with blacklist Creator Franklin Leonard About this year's Oscar nominations earlier this morning a read a piece in the Guardian about how award. Nominations granted people of Color especially women are often for subservient roles like slaves nannies maids. And that's movies like twelve years a slave that help babble even Roma g think there's some truth in that for the few women and women of color who are recognized they play a certain kinds of part and not another kind of role Yeah I think it's pretty arguable. You look at the list of women of color that have been nominated in London You know I suppose. In theory those nomination is progress because She's not playing a slave. The entire time in actually is playing a freedom fighter rescue slaves but no I look I think that there is again and there are some by a large percentage of certain demographics of American culture and really sort of Western culture culture about what role is appropriate for women specifically women of Color. They are far more comfortable with women in those roles than they are. If you stray too far afield and I suspect Jennifer Lopez playing a stripper gets one over on the men that she is supposed to be dancing for left left. Some significant percentage of members who the Kademi uncomfortable since actors are by far the biggest block of Academy voters. Why do the Oscar? Nominations differ from the screen actors guild. which nominated Jamie Foxx from just mercy the Peter Neon go from us and Jennifer Lopez from hustlers I suspect it's age. I I again this. I'm I'm not an expert on this. You can probably correct me if I'm wrong. But the threshold to join SAG is a lot lower in terms of career accomplishment than the threshold to join the academy and therefore it sort of seems inevitable that the academy voters are probably at least the mean significantly older than your average Sag goater and given the changes that have happened in the industry particularly over the last twenty years. I suspect that has something to do with the different nominations. The academy to a certain extent stint can only recognize movies that get made even if Oscar voters still ignored a lot of great work from underrepresented filmmakers and actors. Now you've worked as a creative executive. I can Hollywood so from where you sat on that side of the table. What needs to change in the kinds of movies that are made and who gets to make them so the academy voters voters at least can pick from a wider pool of eligible performances? Films having the same changes that needs to be made in any hiring environment where there's endemic matthias you know. We need to hire a labor force. That's more representative of the culture. As a whole we need to empower them to tell the stories. If they're most excited about telling we you need to make sure they have the resources to tell those stories well And then I think that combined with the changing demographics of the academy membership. I think you'd see a real shift over time in what gets awarded. I think it's really important to remember that you know the reason this conversation sort of pivots around the academy as bad as the time. I'm during the year when the industry is the most visible to the world and I think that it's the time when you know they're they're they're the most outside pressure can be exerted and it's it's the clearest opportunity community to make these cases right that no women were nominated for best director. It's a lot easier to understand that than it is to understand that ninety percent of the movies that are directed a studios are directed by men by so. I think that that's why this conversation happens around this time of year but the real issue and the one that matters is who Who tells the stories of our time? Do they have the resources to tell them. And do they have the autonomy to tell them as they see fit. So let me ask you this last question. We know that the academy I suspect is probably a little mortified. That only one person of color was nominated in the acting races and that no women were many directors. Is it going to be same as it always was the year from now two years from now. How quickly are we not going to be having this conversation? You know I think that the end of the day we're doing with small data sets and you know the IT. It takes a long time to make movies put movies into the marketplace and then run them through the award season so you know even if everything changed as of today we probably wouldn't be looking at a major change until twenty twenty two and as we all know Those changes tend to be even more glacial than the industry. So it's hard to say you know hopefully within this decade Lord knows. I'm going to do everything to make sure it happens faster. Franklin Leonard is the creator of the blacklist. His piece in the Washington Post is called the twenty twenty Oscar Oscar. Nominations didn't have to look like this. Franklin thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thanks for having
3 Aviator Guests Who Flew The F117
"Today we have not one two three we Aviators who flew the F.. One seventeen so with us today. We have colonel at Whitley. We have colonel. Ralph Goetchel and colonel. Ganja Gentlemen thank all of you for being here. We also have their wives with us here. They were able to join us so Just want to thank the six of you for making the trip up to to Oshkosh Wisconsin. Shearson time on this pleasure absolutely so and also they'll be joining us tonight for. EA Speaker series which For those are you listening. It's too late for you but make sure you missed a good one guy you know especially that one part but do check our local to the oshkosh area. Ever want to make a trip sometime. When it's not air venture be sure to check our social media on our website and our online newsletter for for future dates for this for the series so with that of course I guess I'll I'll kick it over to you to kind of ask what we usually ask for the introductory questions for our I guess one of my favorite questions ask because everybody has a story What I made you WanNa fly well for me? As a child growing up I was the child of a World War Two veteran. My Dad worked for a company in which there was is a retired Military Aviator who was the president and CEO of textile the organization being from the South and he was a big collector of military aircraft. And he he shared this collection with the people who work for his organization and so we as kids. We just climb all over a variety of military aircraft and been a little bit older than these other guys I Remember Korea Had Our tendency to visit the local airport just watching it but what the moment that really struck me was when I had my first Ryder t thirty. The three in the backseat. My time is that My choices were go through. ROTC in college or not go to college and be a grunt in the United States are going to be at Phnom and frankly when I went to field training between my sophomore junior year and had that first orientated applied on ever get get visit. Myrtle Beach Airforce Base took off on their forget we broke ground on a cloudy sky and that contrast to the ocean and the white sand. And I said Gosh. Gosh this is what I WANNA do. That was that moment that really struck out for me and I had a great again in front seat and that was that was a magic moment for me. That's awesome How about you Colonel Jill? We're like to point to say that my father who was in the military inspired mutation Taeb restrained to be AAA battery commander so that didn't feel bad but my mother was a navy wave during World War Two and it was a linked trainer operator and she brought with her the navy how to fly manuals and all the things that I just devoured in junior high and high school. I lived on a ranch in central Florida that was in the running line for the navy. Pine Castle air to ground range or GonNa rage and so I could be down there shoveling horse apples or whatever it is that at a ranch boy does it'd be threes and fours and four eight. Five eight vigilantes roaring overhead on looking up and Goya looks like a lot more fun than down here and I did a little investigation allegation and found out that the navy guys running aircraft carrier. And there's no women on carrier knows no beer on the carrier and that that launched launched me on a on a career near fourth. Although my dad wasn't an aviator was on the Coast Guard World War Two timeframe when I was young very young he took me to an EA gathering back when it was in Rockford. And I got my first flight in a gypsy. Moth Open Air. I don't remember eight or nine years old in it's kind of set a spark. My father was always aviation suzy's and then as I was getting into high school I just thought the flight fighters be like the greatest job in the world early in high school. Had I had a cousin that went to the Air Force Academy and I got to thinking I was also the oldest of seven children in the finances of going to college made made a huge difference if the government was sending me to college and I got a chance to be a pilot. Boy that'd be cool owes able to get into the Air Force Academy train their want to go to pilot training and it was just kind of always been my goal to head in that direction. I didn't necessarily have specific specific path but worked out and there. We have how that's awesome. That's really cool. You have an EA if you're early flight and that's pretty wild. It's grown a bit Rockford. We noticed it so we just heard your first experience in an airplane What about the what? What did you was the first plane? Overflowing well following pilot training. No now you just mean like as a kid but as I said in the t thirty three that's an awesome. I fly has an awesome and of course it there in that timeframe There was a program in. ROTC for juniors and sophomores to Get their pilot. License called the flight instruction program and I went through that and of course into the air force and on the pilot training but my first airplane eh operation and was the F. One hundred which kind of an interesting about that as a kid growing up I mentioned that my first flight and the t thirty three was There'll beach airforce. Base happened to be two three fifty four th wing air flying f one hundred's so as a kid. I got a lot of Hans and I never thought that I'd be one of those guys flying the F. One hundred it's an amazing airplane. Yes it is about you. My first light was in a was in a Tri Pacer and my I had a I had a friend in elementary school was interested in aviation as well and my brother and we saved our money and we parents take us out your fort and got a little introductory flight And the next one after that was on my way to the Air Force Academy Outta me. My Kademi lays officer now. This central Florida had a steer men and he put me up in the German to go flying and that open cockpit Pitt. Experience was quite a thrill that is pretty cool at the step up from a Tri Pacer. Quite a bit so we'll talk a little bit about how you guys transitioned into the F. One seventeen program And currently I guess we should start with you since you you were there for pretty early on to keep household about that yes and the late nineteen eighties. I received my backup of it in late late. Nineteen Eighty I was just finishing the eight and fighter weapons school and being reassigned their analysis to be the assistant operations officer in that unit. Something I'd really want to do for some time really looking forward to it but no sooner had I arrived in the squadron and I got a phone phone call from the gentleman I had never met before. who asked me if he could meet me a specific building a specific perfect room at a specific time in several weeks ahead? This guy's name was Bernard Bob Jackson Quite a character in his own right in On the predetermined date and time I arrived air knocks on the door. Door opens about an inch. And I hear this voice is. Are you whittling. I said Yes sir they let me see your ID card slip it through the door. Who knows what's going on the other side he's probably chuckling or whatever but invites me in and we have about three five minute interview that Everything he offered was great but not assured I took him up on his offer. And that's how I joined the unit and made a commitment At that time and two or three months later one of the first in whoops called the initial padres to show up. We didn't have a permanent place to stay. We had a couple of Single wide trailer on on the flight. Line at Nellis Air Force Base and I spent about four and a half five years With the unit I watched it go from obtaining are I eighty seven to become an seven unit the with the as our cover story story Doing Avionics testing and of course I was For whatever reason nothing unique about me because because there were several very talented and capable people in part of that initial Kadre but Colonel Jackson for whatever reason he did elected to Have may be the first operational pilot now. I've had two theories about that. The first is I was expendable. Yeah and so. If it didn't work out nothing was lost but and as it turned out That that was a very unique experience and then of course Being the first operational pilot help check out the next guy and so on and so forth and eventually we received airplanes wanted to time and we checked out people want at the time and by while the intent was by nineteen eighty two to have limited operational operational capability. We simply just didn't the airplanes fast enough because some challenges that they had faced in that process and well how to build it exactly and each airplane was very unique in his own right. What those first few coming up? Because there's a lessons learned very quickly. Adjustments were being made in the Production and June of eighty five rolled around I had basically Evolved into being the Training Squadron Commander and I left the unit about four or five assignments later in August of nineteen ninety. I showed back up on the doorstep So we we had come all the way back to band at one fifty and being the first operational pilot. That's the how we came about my bandit number
Learning Leadership During Combat
"Your career general pay started really in the Vietnam War a long time ago what did you lead people into combat in Vietnam long before you're you're a four star general and before you were Joint Chiefs of staff what what did you first learn about yourself when you started leading people I bet I think what I learned and I hope it has stuck with me is that any of us who are privileged to lead where where the incumbent or not not really understand that we're we're we're not worthy of the opportunity and I don't mean that in a overly self effacing way I mean that the young men and women especially in our armed forces in combat who willing to sacrifice themselves for our country deserve to have the best leader in leaders taken possibly have and I think for any of us to have the Hubris to believe that you're actually a good leader is a step too far I would I hope I learned was to have some humility about the opportunities to lead and to understand that the day I think I'm a good leader I'm not in the as you come to work every day believing that I owe more than I can ever be pay and I need to strive to be the best leader I can be that day that's a great point a great lead into to what we want to talk about which is I think the trajectory of leadership where experience uh-huh in combat and in this enterprise that we've chosen to be a part of being the Marine Corps time and time again your face with leadership challenges how much harder was it to be reflective leader of humility as you became became more senior along the way and really an enterprise leader as well all the way to your chairmanship The difficulties in managing now the entire enterprise and all of the minefield you had to maneuver in and amongst DC how did that change over time yeah you know Matt I think that having been in combat as a second lieutenant those are the most difficult decisions I've made those decisions that when you made them you knew that the young man in that case in my case all young men in the young men who were executed my orders was second lieutenant had a high likelihood of being injured or killed the decisions I made ah later on in life the recommendations I made his chairman for example yes they were more more weight he had very direct impact on the troops in the field but they might decisions in DC my recommendation DC did not have the exact same direct impact that might who says as a second lieutenant did so in in one way the decisions as a general were easier to make than decisions as a second lieutenant because of the immediate profound impact of the decision of the moment that makes sense does Sir and I could I wanNA take us back to the beginning and I don't think we've ever chatted about this as Naval Academy Grad what made you choose the Marine Corps in the first place hey listen I would I went to the nuclear submarines you want farm in you wanted to be in submarines so I went to naval academy and took the entire new power engineering program and then Sir dip it Asli Between my seniors or take Kademi he's a new Missile Boat came into the waters near the academy it was a weekend and they said anybody who wants to go out on board was welcome to so I'll say hey this is great again on a launch I go back to get on board the on the sub and you could as long ladder to get down to the the basically the quarter deck on a submarine and what I got down by the time I got down and I stood there I mean the folks can't see This rumor in right now but the truth probably twelve by eighteen this room is bigger than the spot I can't aim to the submarine and I didn't notice the time but I'm I'm a little bit claustrophobic you only get me in an Mr machine to give me some value those are fun now so so I certainly say oh my gosh this is small this is a horrible so I mean God bless guys and gals who who can do summaries I physically couldn't all respect him because you're there a long time months three months six months so I could add that thing as fast she says I couldn't get up to the fresh okay what's Plan B immediately regret this decision but it was perfect because I believe there's a god God lab him out find out that design intervention SORTA looking around Now what and the war was going on in Vietnam and I I really like toward I saw in the marine officers of the academy and I didn't know if I could be marine but I knew I wanted to try so I made a decision a couple months after final year at school began to become a marine we all have those memories of milestone moments are trajectories marines and somewhere you were humbled and inspired along the way and sometimes that's three your first interaction with a very powerful staff NCO do you have any stories or memories of your first interactions with the staff sergeants in Gonese that alongside the NGOs are the backbone of our Marine Corps. Yeah absolutely fact that the most vivid memory my very first was sergeant if I started to his filling the role of my platoon sergeant so I go to the non I join up with tune in in doing the Ted offensive with sixty eight I'd get to my platoon and you know you when your brand new you want that you're not better than anybody else you know that you're not that you're willing to do whatever it is it really is required so I got to my platoon him we were we were joining a railroad bridge over the Perfume River in way city and my platoon I got there was filling sandbags sooner the strengthened position and I figured okay I'll show them on that above doing manual labor so I go out I start filling sandbags and SORTA Zachary who said I started feeling a status orange job says he lieutenant can I talk to you I said sure sure so he pulls his says Sir we don't we don't need you filling sandbags we're going to hit again tonight like we have every night we need you doing what the officer supposed to do we need to flynn how're you undefended he's GonNa get medevacs how you're GonNa get artillery support how you're GONNA get air support we need you to do what you were trained to do we can fill sandbags I thanked him and then I took a private moments with cheese and on the job listening today how screwed everything up but there does come a point in time where I know you recognize his mad whereas an officer you finally are you get the comfort level too to tell staff NCO no to Andrew or even better tighten them up when he needs to tighten up because he stepped on your toes and that comes along the way for you how it happened with our company gunnery sergeant great great cutty while you're in Vietnam but he had he had he was telling my platoon sergeant to do things that were my responsibility to tell them to do so I got Holy Guardian had had a discussion with me when I walked away from that when I walked away in that meeting actually confrontation I I felt like okay I've ever okay I'm an officer yeah the the self confidence to tell a gun you know get outta my way
How Former Thunderbird Pilot Col. Chris Stricklin Developed an Interest in Flying
"Today. We have Colonel Chris Strickland with us Karl thank you for coming up and being with us. We really appreciate she hit. Thanks Chris. It's always a great time to be here at a and I appreciate spending time with you. Absolutely we'll tonight. We're recording this that we're reporting on a Friday here tonight. Something very special is happening and you're actually launching your book with us here tonight. I am and it's an honor to do that. With such a passionate crowd about aviation to launch a book about an incident that happened to me a while back and how my family dealt with it and what it means to us today well. It's really an honor for us to to be here with you and to do that. We'll get a little bit into the book and Events Around the book but you know I one of our favorite questions. We like to ask people as just. Where did it all start? How did you I I didn't flying? That's always the question that people in Aviation WanNa know is how did you get your inspiration to take to the skies and what we do every single day from me. Small Town Alabama Emma boy my dad worked in a quarry no military in my family and I decided to fly fifteenth and I went to my counselor and said Hey hey I want to go to the Air Force Academy I WANNA fly fifteens and and she looked at me and I would love to say she was supportive but she goes. What's the Air Force Academy and so from their seventeen year old me I got my car went and found a first term senator and said Hey sir I want to go to the Air Force Academy? We sponsor me up there and I had a saying hanging you know my wall my whole life and it was cut out of a magazine it was laminated. I looked at it every morning every night and it simply said like begins at Mach two and I always had it but I didn't you know where it came from. So as I started speaking writing a book I researched it and came from a magazine Article Net back in nineteen eighty six George Plumpton wrote in popular mechanics magazine and he had the opportunity to fly in an F. Eighteen and he did about a four page spread about how it was demanding on the pilot how what it was really like to be a fighter pilot but most most importantly at the end of the article he compared the F. Eighteen to a corvette and to a young child in Alabama. The corvette was something I really loved and I said that is compared to a corvette. That's what I WANNA do with my life. That's funny. It's funny that came from an Plumpton article man. That guy got to do everything I wonder how it compared to quarterbacking the lions yeah it's amazing to does. He understand how many people he inspired what he wrote about and it was it was a true non fighter pilot article about what it was like to be a fighter pilot and the demands that are on our body and what we go through in in it just made me go. I want that so from there you did you you did attend the the Air Force Academy I did. I went to the Air Force Academy about three weeks after graduation with fifteen hundred closest friends for four years of what I like to call all basic training the whole four years and wh what kind of experience was free kind of coming out of a small town in Colorado Springs was it. Was It kinda familiar to you you or was it a kind of a brief from drinking from a fire hose. It was drinking from a fire hose the whole time and I will tell you it is a lot of competition titian. Get in the Air Force Academy as you can imagine and when you take fifteen hundred young people that are coming as the top of their class and lock them in in one building on one campus. Guess what happens when fifteen hundred number ones get together. Fourteen hundred ninety nine of them aren't number one anymore so it was demanding both physically and mentally but there was also the challenge of being in college and such a High Level College at such a level of competition and it was a great I mean I say the freshman year there from he is one of the hardest years that I ever went through my childhood because there were so much adaptation to the new way of life and and getting through the Air Force Academy and the competition to be a pilot pilot coming out of there it was just it was an amazing experience that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world but even now after so many years I will admit that I love the Academy Kademi but I hated every day I was there if you know what I mean yeah that that makes a lot of sense the diesel have I know I still have dreams of being in a final exam Zama last sat for you know twenty years ago. Is that the same thing for you so that dream for me. If you remember a final final week we put all our finals in one week and we ate on base because it's a military and so we had a midnight meal that we lovingly called Scooby snacks. If you remember Scooby Doo Scooby always had scooby snacks so at midnight we would go out to get our scooby snacks and and about every night you would hear somebody goes screaming across the patio out there because they had hit that breaking point and somebody he's not getting his scooby snack. Ah Yeah so what was your progression of aircraft flew through training. How did that go so graduation? From the Air Force Academy I I went to pilot training and back then we went to the thirty seven so the tweet now they fly the t six so you do that for about six months I went to Euro NATO joint jet Pilot Training Senate Sheppard Air Force Base which is where we trained fighter pilots so after six months of t thirty seven training you get rank ordered and then you go into the thirty eight where you learned to fly a high speed jet you go supersonic for the first time learn to fly formation those type things and then coming out of the t thirty eight you get rank ordered and we have assignment midnight so you literally walk into a room with all of your instructors and your peers know spouses no friends though anybody they locked the door they walk up on stage and at the time they took a cheat off of a board that had you rank order from first to last and it was right there and start with number one you get up and walk to the board and they have magnets every airplane plane that was available to be picked and you walked up and pick the airplane you wanted. Put it by your name and you can imagine as you went down. The list got smaller and smaller so for me. I I got my first choice. The F fifteen went out of their to introduction to fighter fundamentals which is where we take the t thirty eight put a bomb on a gun side on it and we fight against the other to start getting those basic fighter type skills in and then I went off to the fifteen at Tyndall to the schoolhouse to get qualified in the fifteen then once once you get to your combat unit which was me was the thirty third fighter wing at Eglin Air Force Base. It takes about three months to finish and get certified before you're a combat ready pilot ready to deploy we overseas why so the F fifteen I mean that's a great airplane undefeated champion as we always say What was your first impression? When you get your dream you signed the fifteen? He got on the ramp at some point and you finally see the airplane. You'RE GONNA fly for the first time. What's that feeling like so if we could back it up a little bit because this happened at the Air Force Academy one of the benefits go in the Air Force Academy is we have an assignment one summer for three weeks to go out and shadow a unit and see the real air force? We call it is like for me happened to go to Tyndall Air Force Base so as a senior at the Air Force Academy I was able to get in an F. Fifteen and go fly for the first time before I graduated before I had the assignment before I'd been through pilot training and you can imagine the childhood sparkling is when I walk out and see that beast I it's the size of a tennis court for those that don't know it's about thirteen feet off the ground when you climb up and I'm just sitting there and admiration of this thing and we take off and when we airborne a home i Gosh I hate it. It is brutal it hurts and I landed exhausted. After a forty minute flight a pulling nine Jeez I mean and they didn't take it easy on me. They full up at a normal mission with me and I remember we went back into into the debrief room which has a lot of computers so it's kind of cool and about two minutes. It's in the debrief. I was not enough out of pure exhaustion. I was so tired and my instructor goes a just an incentive right for you. You can go and go if you want to and I left there going. Oh my Gosh Josh is my life's dream and it hurt. My whole body hurts. It's bigger than any workout I ever had and there was that moment of do I really want to do this and that's when I said Yep. This is what I WANNA do so that was my first flight before I went to pilot training.

"Let's talk about women. Cabrera in the dynamo wilmer the fourth with coach to lose his job this season houston. They've struggled. They lost their last four to eleven and one in the last fourteen ten losses in their last twelve. That's not good made. The playoffs in two thousand seventeen when you took over did not make the playoffs last year but they didn't win u._s. Open cup looks like they will not make the playoffs this year they're six point out and there are fading and wilmer is no longer the head coach as a result thirty to thirty nine and twenty two is his record as the head coach of the dynamo and now to help us understand the decision is matt jordan the general general manager of the club. It's our a._t. And t. call to the field matt. How's it going. Hey guys. I'm doing andrew david charlie susannah. Thank you very much rob me on. I appreciate it. We appreciate russia you coming on and remembering everyone's name well done well done. Let's dive right in here. Of course the big news. Wilmer cabrera dismisses the head coach of the dynamo. Why why let wilmer go and why now yeah look. It was a very difficult decision. We have as a club that tremendous amount of respect and appreciation tation for everything the wilmer has done in the last two and a half years is the head coach of of the dynamo <hes> really coming off his last road trip <hes> in communication with our ownership group our board <hes> we collectively felt that it was the the right time to make this decision <hes> and really now how with with this being a challenging week with change comes opportunity so now the focus has shifted to supporting davey and the south the players as they prepare for the game this weekend against colorado. We know that the results especially recently we're not there. Is this strictly strictly results. Excuse me is there a coaching issue the way that you guys were getting x._y._z. out of your talent. Is it a roster problem well. What was the big issue here that led to wilmer just not getting what he needed to stay on the job. Well you know i think that you know wilmer the whole staff of i've been putting a lot of work into things <hes> in looking at really from the end of made the beginning of june we dropped eleven of fourteen games in m._l._s. play and we were three twelve and two in all competitions and and you know looking at everything holistically you know we we have the best start in club history this year <hes> and and we're off to a good start. Obviously we had a tough off last couple of months but i don't think anybody feels that <hes> the results. The last couple of months is a reflection of the quality of the roster. You know it's it's been challenging and there's a lot of factors. There's that play into this you know and so <hes> you know and obviously you had you know the the dog days of summer and the m._l._s. and everything that you guys guys no real well <hes> but really collectively felt that this was the right time to texas decision and and we wish wilmer nothing but the best moving forward so matt that tell us where are you at in the interview process right now for the next coach has begun already. Yeah well really once once you. You know any change like that occurs. I mean you're you know everybody is reaching out to your phone's blowing up and and we've had a tremendous amount of interest in that position i i think the key at the moment is is that we want to focus you know you you really wanna make sure that the group is has all the communication necessary a and and the coaches and davey in particular how to support to prepare for the weekend i think for us what's important is we're not going to rush into any decisions. We're not gonna make any reactionary harry decisions. We're gonna take our time. We're going to do our due diligence and it's going to be a very detailed process. You know we have a lot of you know key characteristics. We're we're gonna keep in mind that we're gonna evaluate as we're going through this process. You mentioned the due diligence. What have you learned from the past processes. You've been a part of hiring wilmer. Hiring is up in montreal as well and what are those characteristics. You're looking for well. I think the most important thing is that you have to find a head coach that that fits within the strategic plan of the club and within your within our core values that just strong leader <hes> and for us also understands understands our structures. You know we obviously we put a lot of work in our kademi are u._s. L. setup and a first team you know so i think a big part of this and we we believe big part of this is also the next candidate is committed to continuing to build on the infrastructure. That's in place and shows that level of commitment to to build build a culture of development. Those are the key factors that that were were focusing on in this process and and we'll take our time <hes> you know we're we're very fortunate that davey the <hes> you know is someone is very well respected in the locker room and amongst the staff and with the club and he's he's ready to do whatever possible all the help support. The club meetings very hard working. He's very committed got strong strong values <hes> and most importantly. He's got a growth mindset <hes> so i think i think that you know he's he's stepped right in you know and and is doing everything catalog with his staff and our support shop to help the guys prepare for this weekend matt. Is there so anyway that davy arnaud could win this job if he's to guide them to the playoffs. After this rough start <hes> you know towards the middle of the season. Could he's still win this job yet. Charlie no davey for sure is gonna be inconsideration for for the job <hes> you know and while we're we're doing and we're doing a very detailed search as well. <hes> and i think you know we feel we feel. We've got a good roster. I mean this is the same roster that had the best start in club history the street and i'd argue we were one of the most aggressive teams in the summer transfer window with the trades of christian ramirez nico hanson and the transfer of opposed jose bislama who's up and coming with the knossos team so we're not sitting back and and resting on anything you know we got a good group. We've got a good team. <hes> and these new editions we feel will give us a boost to make a good push and yeah davey will will be considered for the role as well davies a certain kind of candidate a guy from within the

I don't like city and now I really don't like Barcelona after what they did to Champions League. It's all right. All of the player from all of our teams are going to PS g anyway. And then we just all band together to hey, PS, g so let's talk with Chris, of course, bit time in the FC Dallas system, but you were born in Atlanta and talk about how early on in that you shouldn't say picked up because that would be against wolves. How did you start playing soccer? I started kinda late actually probably ten eleven twelve issue around there. Start playing because there is we move neighborhoods in Atlanta in the suburbs. And there was a soccer club right down the street from my house. So we said, yeah. Take your after school kind of China. So just stuck with it. Now. Of course, talked about in Minnesota. Being a primarily outdoor sport. How sometimes that might impede? Although with Minnesota United in their growth. I think the game is getting bigger up there in Minnesota. Down down in Atlanta at that time how in early two thousands and stuff how big was soccer down. There. We see now with Atlanta United. How crazy there are how big with soccer when you were coming out club. Soccer was really big Atlanta the metro area. Some good players go just even with high school is still before that development kademi club. Soccer was good kademi soccer's good, the Georgia as a state was it. Good state in the region, Florida, of course, being good North Carolina being good. So southern on this out. They're very good with me growing up. And then as you see now, it's no surprise to me to see how United has done in the support that they have behind them because there was such a big underlying soccer already. All you need to know about soccer in Atlanta is that the MLS championship outdrew the Super Bowl down there. I mean that that that tells you right there helping Ford is down there, and you talk about the south as a whole with soccer. You chose to play college ball initially at at Wake Forest, obviously, very good. Perennial power on. How is how is your time in in Wake Forest? Yeah. It was really good still have a lot of lifelong friends there. And of course on the field. We're we're pretty good that year. So some superstars to be honest. Jack Harrison played in England right now. A lot of guys in the leak playing right now one of my teammates from Dallas, Corey Hayes. So good. We did we did. Well, and you said after one year you're like, I'm too good for this. I'm gonna get outta here. I'm gonna go but in on the seriousness. What what did go into your decision to go to Portland? Yeah. No. So the two years I wake and I had a great time on the field. Like, I said soccer was was going great. I had the opportunity to years left to kind of branch out and kind of look within myself and and take another opportunity another challenge. I just felt like a good time to leave the team relieving and everything. I kinda want to go somewhere where little smaller school up in Poland. But also up and coming and. To be really good decision. Again. We had a good first year winning the with university of winning the WC championship in. So yeah, I mean, no regrets at all in good decision. End up going from Portland, and you know, again amid a lot of lifelong friends at UP and yet all the great for years soccer. Of course, you're signed by that by FC Dallas, y'all issues talking about how he he when he would go home me play a lot again against the pro teams and stuff there Minnesota, and he was on their radar obviously from his time in high school there in Minnesota. At what point did you? Did you know that FC Dallas was interested in you? Did they come out and want you a lot at wake was it at Portland, when did you know that maybe FC Dallas was was looking to potentially sign you played in the kademi, I left Georgia and Dallas that like sixteen seventeen. So I grew up in the system and a lot of the guys were for me that group in the system, we're getting signed back home grows. And so that was kind of the route you you get signed before you go to college or you go to college. So I I did my four years I call it a followed me throughout my career. And I came back and trained with them to maintain my home. And after the four years they signed me. And playing at the MLS level. Both of you have been able to do that. So what what's the what's the best will anecdote that you could give it a last you this. Same question is from your time in MLS. Maybe it wasn't necessarily in a match in MLS play. Which is your timing. FC Dallas your time. Minnesota United maybe like a start like I don't know you you wouldn't have played at the same time Wayne Rooney, but like you went in and like you tackled Wayne Rooney or something like that you got any little antidotes from your time NFC Dallas. It was my first Selassie actually Dallas we were in preseason play Portland timbers. So I was at university of Portland. So I'd always go to the timbers games when they play at home. And I'm in the stands watching them like maybe this guy or. Quickly. The next thing on the field against. Audie. Who's a big time? Striker right. I'm watching goals two years earlier than the next thing. The next thing. I know I'm tackling him. And stop it restoring. Also, just all happen. Crazy. Pretty cool. How how do you? How do you get up in cool after something like that? Because I'm sure in your head. You're like holy. But, but I'm sure you just got up, and you're like, whatever just another tackle. Yeah. I think he was he was looking for me. So I kind scared off to the side. For big tackled. Him kind of hard. Yeah. Great experience. What's what's Jones? Big-league story. When people ask you about talking playing at the top tier of American soccer, which one do you talk about is kind of a I think it was one of the games played against NYC FC when Dovid via Zillow or still right on the team. Starting that game. But I remember we're in the tunnel..

"But if you haven't been paying attention Kobe's like super busy in the music age. Yeah. Yes. I just saw him a couple of weeks ago. You went to an event the Mamba kademi guys like seven books. He's got like a Broadway musical that turning dear basketball into a Broadway musical milley's. I mean, dude has way too much. Can we see it depen- take at some point? I on Broadway hit eventually. Yeah. That's what happens. Yeah. Cool. Yeah. I'm not gonna fly going on. I'm not flying New York. Kobe smart enough to touch this right now. Yeah. I think that's that's the thing with that. He knows where his bread is buttered. Right. And I think the last thing he wants is what just happened to magic. By the way, who is the biggest winner of the magic LeBron James era. Toby, right. Yeah. He is now been he's now being viewed differently because of recency bias. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. He looks a lot different as a Laker great with LeBron here as the new torch bear, but after year one, correct? And what I mean, by reasons he bias is when the Atlantic did their Sam amick did that poll of one hundred twenty whatever guys, and they asked who the goat was you know, it was Jordan overwhelmingly LeBron was second, but Kobe was closer than I thought that he would be Koby has there's sort of Toby disciples. Kyrie's one Gonesse is now on Joel Embiid like people who worship at the altar of Kobe kyri FaceTime Kobe after they won in two thousand sixteen right now. That's what you know. Kobe's Q rating has gone up and partially because he graded branding. Yeah. I mean Kobe with the Mamba mentality and the the way that people can cite him as the do whatever it takes to it. You know, that's very. Coby the Mumba Sita's. Yes. The daughters to great name. And now, it's great mambas seat. Does. He's Kobe road commercials. Yeah. He's great brand. You know, one of the things that I think that you can say about Kobe in like since he's gone on basketball might seem like he's all over the place doing all these different products. But most of them have to deal with him trying to articulate his own brand of fearlessness competitiveness and translate it for a young audience. Right. Like, that's what he's basically been doing Curtis. Doesn't believe Kobe should get a pass right Curtis. All right. George. Kobi's one of outs. Around. Can't recruit. Nobody likes. And what was getting a pet? I can see put all over. I love the show you ticket coming. I think that's a professional caller at there. I love you. And I'll take your comments off the, mama. Would you like professional that guy knows what professional you had to stay on the bluetooth didn't sound too good? But that's good. That's true. You should just gotten onto the phone. It would have been easier. But you know, you just want to get a ticket, especially so I don't think he's calling every day. I think that rob still talk show them. I think that genie's still toxic Koby. But I think he's running his own life. He's home businesses. How does coaching them bus seat this? He is busy. And like I said before smart enough not to get involved with all this right now. It's the perfect way to describe the Lakers right now, a caller did this. I believe last week. This is how he described it going wackadoo. It'll right now, it's wackadoo. It'll look. It's just you know, right now, the Lakers are allowing people to pile on them. Yeah. They know if they were that concerned with what people are saying about them you'd hear from Jeanie Buss tomorrow you'd hear from rob Pelinka ever. You can't call people fake news. And then not not tell your story. I think there's something there. I think she has been telling your story. Just don't like what she's saying. No. But I mean mind right now, we don't know what's how we haven't heard from her since I think that there's a calculation that was made and discussion that was had of. Yes, it would be good for people to hear from her however Intel they know what they're gonna do. Yeah. It's sort of like getting out in front of the cameras just to go in front of cameras..
