"Welcome to the podcast. This is game podcast. And we're gonna play some games way. We get some random stuff and do some game design so to just do some pitch. Trevor i think so well. Click pitches a game where we each have a random would generate in front of us and on the count of three to click. We are going to get a fresh set of woods. Additive an-an-and each. We're going to let each other know what they are and let you know what they are and then use that as a prompt for some comedic game designed potential. We're gonna try something a little bit different this week. I'm gonna. I'm gonna cop out way we actually say the words and you're gonna guess what they are like jacking. We could do that. I do quite a bit of light lager challenge. When the whole let us say the words who have a little Buzzer that if either of us says any of the words that we've got them disqualified we lose points Look let us know in review. If that's something you'd wanna listen to you. But tonight i think stick with the standard formula That's what saif offer approximately two hundred and thirty nine episodes as Let's jump in three two one. Click click accompanying challenge famous. Certainty made me think of who accompanies a fight. Mathis a celebrity and what sort of challenges they might have. That is quite often. You know the and that sort of stuff you know you body god saw kind of thinking you know personal assistant to the size or something like that. What would be the challenges that you've that you've gotta deal with. According to kevin. Smith in bob strike back there was like cleaning up drug paraphernalia and dead hoops that we have go to quite not one. Not what is this game. Lie this like. I immediately went to a hitman style sort of situation but we do that. A lot on the movie set with your celebrity. Okay and they condescend you out to get different things and it's all about making sure that when you go out there to pick up the coffee order that the copy order is actually matches. What what they said in this house and didn't didn't screw you over on the on the double-pump market cuff teen cappuccino. Or whatever off of chino. That's a special special at this particular coffee shop. The coffee cina yes. Yep the coffee china yet but causing to let we need to. That's all well good but we need to find the fun. Okay so the fun is actually. How can you fuck with celebrity while getting fired so this is the liberties and office. Whole be basically right to everyone. But the money's rock and so you're trying to see how many times you can spit in conferencing before they notice. And then who and then decide who you can blame it on. And then that presents fine. Well ideally dilly not get five but if they actually figured out that someone's spitting the covey. Someone's getting fine. I just i just think of having having to actually do do things first. Celebrity life is could actually be quite interesting. We'll it's a bit more of a. I went to almost katie kind of mood where you are having to do. Those sort of feci things but it's almost more of a like a top down view. Almost like isometric kana khana view. So it's a grand theft auto wanted to sort of you need a few pedestrians.

"Hi Welcome to words on water. PODCAST from the Water Environment Federation. This this is the host Travis loop very happy to be talking today with Valerie. Lucas the executive director of the clean water professionals of Kentucky and Tennessee the C. Valerie. How're you doing? I'm doing great travis. How about you? I'm doing very well. So you are a member Association of the Water Water Environment Federation Could you for those. That might not be familiar with how wealth is set up and what the member associations are and how that relationship works. Could you give a little bit of overview of of Your organization clean water professionals. Kentucky and Tennessee is one one of seventy five member associations of the Water Environment Federation here in Kentucky and Tennessee are member Association is about a thousand members members strong and each one of those one thousand members is also a member of where we have two staff members. We have an eight Person Executive Board and then we have thirteen technical committees and as far as the relationship with West goes because we are a federation when people ask asked me about that I kind of always related to an adult relationship with your parents so with is our parent organization and we are like their adult children and they help got us. They're kind of our North Star And we have a great usual respect for one another. But there's there's not an exact way that they tell us how to operate a in my almost three years at West. That's the first time I've heard the parent child analogy so. I'm glad to hear that I'm glad to hear it come from you. And that's a great way of explaining it We both have a lot of influence. fluence on the other. And and Have a great time as family but have our own kind of things going on to right. Yeah so what are the interesting thing things as you all change your name recently And I think it was a very deliberate purposeful decision. Not just kind of liquid. Let's Change Change Our Name. Could you talk about The genesis of that decision. And just kind of why you decided to do that. And what the old name was an Led to this new name. Absolutely sell our our own name was Kentucky Tennessee Water Environment Association which we used to be a pollution control association so years ago that nine changed and just this year we announced our name change to clean water professionals of Kentucky and Tennessee. And you're right Travis. That was very intentional. In fact it really a US started in two thousand and thirteen without us really knowing it when we worked hard to create a mission and vision statement and our mission is that we are an integral part of all clean water professionals careers and so kind of started way back then and has just more from there a Lotta. This was really about the public message right. And could you expand on that and and why You wanted to have a name that that really reflected your mission in a in a public friendly publicly digestible conaway. Right so We really really did want our name to reflect what we do and that's clean. Water are members clean water twenty four seven three hundred sixty five days a year ear and as you know has really been promoting this. We need to do a better job of telling our story and telling the story of water so we we wanted a very descriptive name. That helps us reach our public and clean. Water professionals seem like the perfect opportunity to let people know what we do. Yeah absolutely I was I heard recently about the whole discussion around green jobs ups and the idea that people think that means you know you work on solar installing solar something like that and this person was talking about Gosh everything in the water space. Everyone that works at water. Utilities is really a green job because we are cleaning water And so I I think the idea that you've changed that name to to better explain what we all do to. The public is fantastic. And I'm going to be real. Curious is to see if you're starting a trend among You know the other seventy four member associations out there. What have you heard feedback or comments comments from any of them? We have heard some feedback and that really is a goal of ours is not to keep this as something that we are just doing here in Kentucky and Tennessee see because the truth is we have been inspired by other web member associations out West up north. There's lots of pockets of clean water and people identifying with what we do water resource recovery. And so really. We're just kinda tagging along with with what we're already seeing nationally and we hope that continues of this is our grassroots effort to do that and we think if we're going to communicate with the public and we have to start with with ourselves we have to start with the water professionals and we have to change our language around water so that we do a better job of telling story. AM water yeah. I love it Another project that you all were involved in. That is very much about reaching the public and explaining cleaning Building awareness of water issues. I guess Involves what we kind of have called pure water brew and this is taking a a highly treated wastewater effluent and brewing beer with it and serving it as a way to start conversation And it was so awesome to see you all get involved in a project there. So could you a explain Kana Khana. What happened in the area absolutely away again? We were inspired by What we're seeing other folks do in the water sector and we didn't? We wanted to be part of that. Fun because water is fun and we have so many creative and innovative people in water so as a member Association we are always looking for ways to to get our members more engaged and This this brewing projects seem like a great way to get our members excited about innovation and and also just excited about really promoting the value of water to the public into ourselves from I guess a logistics and nuts and bolts standpoint. Who did you collaborate with on this project so this was such a fun? Exciting and really a big project to be a hard of we collaborated with Lobo Muskie Louisville water and both of those organizations have such great reputations in in water in the Louisville area and were great partners but we also a partnered with local entities. So local brewers. We had four different breweries as we partnered with. We partnered with ice. Oh pure which is a a local business here in Louisville where I'm located and then we just had so many engineering affirms lab Zoeller pumps to so many people wanted to be part of this project. Yeah awesome and I think You you went with a little bit of a different name. I know I know. Level water has their kind of pure campaign already so they didn't want to kind of confuse folks and it came up with this this Next round was kind of the name that this was done under which is obviously a great name that gets at the idea that of that water cycle right and that things things just keep going around and around Plays into beer to. Hey let's have another round and all that so really cool and what I loved about project is that it was very public facing when it debuted Could you describe that That day when it was released east. Absolutely we've paired our next round brewing release with our water for life events. We have an annual water professionals conference that moves moves around to seven different cities within Kentucky in Tennessee and so with the backdrop of the Ohio River. We promoted this next around brewing campaign and invited the public to try this beer. We did a concentrated campaign with our local TV stations. Radio stations and in the water also helps US create a video debt Educate folks. I can't forget that we also partnered with the University of our steel bowl and bay covered. It promoted it within the speed school of Engineering so it's just a really collaborative fun project to the art ask. Yeah and I'm. I'm sorry that I couldn't make the trip out there to To See at myself. I'm really curious what people people in the public said. Kinda what you might have heard that day from from people that were coming up here in about it and trying it absolutely lately We actually surveyed folks. We had volunteers to go around and ask people what they thought about the beer and we consistently heard that it was really great eight beer for her things like it's about time or it's just like the astronauts and this is what NASA has a you know we even within Uber Era. We took an uber on over to the park where we had the event and the driver even knew about it so it was exciting long That's awesome I I It's great to hear all that feedback. That's a it's always awesome when the public is on our messages. Or they get it you you know Very cool on. We're very happy that you all brought that beer up to two west tech our big conference and had it served in our beer guard was extremely popular. There's well thank you. We are glad to be a part of it and we are going to have a next round With our water professionals conference next Salah in Chattanooga sell the ideas that we will continue to promote this message of the value of water. And take this to the Chattanooga community in Tennessee and work with their ruse they are to let people know how important water is in every community in Kentucky in Tennessee That's breaking news is to me. That's awesome love it Great what I want to shift gears a little bit because I know another issue Of great interest to you is is kind of the status of women in the water sector and I am wondering if you could kind of share your thoughts on kind of what the landscape looks like these days for women and water. Why you think it's important and You know where where things might be headed in your mind. Sure I would love to talk about women in water you know. My background is civil engineering on a licensed professional civil engineer in the State of Kentucky not head About twenty two years of experience working in water at thirteen years of experience being the executive director of clean water professionals channels. And it's just amazing. I realize that I'm a visual learner. So seeing women Take leadership positions at what has been so valuable for me as a woman in the water sector. Yeah at so. That's that's terrific to hear do you. So you've been in water for a while have Have you seen more women coming into water during your career. Have you seen more women. Coming hanging on that side of of Engineering and science and Yeah just kind of what it. What have you seen as far as trends throughout your career so I do think there are more women choosing water and I think that's right I do think that they we still need more women as you know. Oh in our membership roster reflects this very much so a women only make got fifteen percent of water workforce whereas nationally we make up fifty percent of the workforce. So there's work to be done but when we see women like Eileen O'Neill Ginny heartfelt or Jackie Jerrell in positions of leadership I think that is so valuable for young women and for women like me that have more experience. It is just so important for us to encourage orig- other women and just really set a wide table so that we are welcoming and making sure that people feel like they have a place in the water sector. It's really a shocking statistic To hear that just fifteen percent that's one five Of the water workforce. Is Women Right when you when you look at the broader. US workforce you look at the the US population that's That's really amazing that it's that low but I'm sure it's also come up a good bit over the past twenty years so I know that at both. We're really striving to increase diversity across the water workforce certainly gender is a big part of that Because we feel it's important for for utilities to reflect the communities that they serve Are there other benefits. You think to to having a diverse workforce especially having you know that atmel female ratio better mirror. The communities that were in. I definitely think that diversity inclusion is so important an are worked for water. I really have appreciated Tom. as president of with the words that he spoke Tom is a white male works for utility. He's kind of the power position player at her hand to use his voice to really promote diversity inclusion was so important And then to have Jackie Gerald step into president as a female thank not only has wept talking about the the actions. Are there also that so important. Yeah I For this podcast I was just recently I was looking at the web page just went to it to check something something and I saw that the row of three that kind of.
"kana khana" Discussed on The Takeaway
"At the beginning of the show. We played clips of president. Obama heaping love on facebook. Wasn't such an unusual thing for a Democrat to do back in that era since twenty sixteen of course that relationship has grown much cooler so I thought the best way to see how Democrats are navigating their new status with tech I check in with the Democrat who represents Silicon Valley in Congress Chris Representative Ro Kana Khana got there by defeating longtime Democratic incumbent in two thousand sixteen that means he's only been in Washington since twenty seventeen just as the tide started to change. I asked him about the adversarial nature of the relationship between Silicon Valley and Washington DC. I would say it's tense. I think there is a recognition of the promise of technology in terms of advances in medicine in terms of advances in communication Russian in terms of advances dissemination of information. But there's also a concern about the concentration of power in these companies and whether there are sufficiently creating jobs and opportunities places left behind whether they are protecting privacy of whether there are adhering to antitrust law Whether they're being manipulated by foreign interference so the complexity of the relationship is Far Starker in the nineteen nineties and early two thousands I would say the relationship was one of unambiguous admiration and that has changed. So was it one thing that happened. That turned this from a as you pointed out one of admiration to one of adversarial. It was almost like a light. Switch was flipped and especially especially among Democrats. He started to hear so much more criticism about all those industries. I think it was the two thousand sixteen election partly the sense that these platforms were manipulated in certain cases by foreign actors that they were used to spread propaganda and lies that they were used to suppress minority votes. So that gave a lot of Democrats pause the Cambridge Analytica scandal was a further concern. That people's this data may have been used to Prop up Candidate who they didn't agree with and and that felt like a violation for many many individuals and then finally I think the two thousand sixteen election opened people's eyes to a large part of the country that had been left out of the Technology Revolution Solution and innovation the Donald trump the parts of the country that he carried one third of GDP. So there was this growing concern that Economic Opportunity Cindy had been concentrated geographically and that we had not done enough to unleash the promise of technology in many places that had been left out you who also are a backer supporter of Bernie Sanders bid for the presidency and He has made made some inroads here on the idea of breaking up big tack and many of those companies or people who worked for those companies headquartered in in your district. Do you agree with him on this. I believe we need stronger. And I trust enforcement but I don't think any candidate should prescribe. What the Solution Sean is and I think some of the solutions need to be nuanced? Let me give you example. There was a company in Michigan. That was selling t shirts and they couldn't start a brick and mortar store so Amazon actually helped them and they developed a successful online business. That shows the promise and value of Amazon Amazon started to copy those those t shirts and sell them as Amazon shirts and now that t-shirt business faces a lot of hardship so the solution to this is not to say well. Let's not have Amazon on. The solution is to say well. We need strong antitrust laws. That say Amazon shouldn't be able to unfairly compete on its own platform. It shouldn't be in a neutral platform and being able to copy competitors or undersell competitors like that. I think there are laws that we can have modeled on the Microsoft case that would strengthen antitrust press law without hurting our innovation. Do you believe that facebook has broken and I trust laws. I don't know if they have broken. The laws currently interpreted terported what I would say though is that There should have been far more scrutiny on the merger with what's up and instagram. It's a it's a tragedy that that merger didn't face scrutiny. Maybe if they hadn't been allowed to have that merger you would have seen more competition with facebook and I would be very very concerned about future mergers in enlarge merger especially horizontal mergers that were a restricting competition and the FTC and Justice Department should really view future mergers with great skepticism. So why did they drop the ball there. Well I I think the market was clearly defined. I don't think it was clear to folks that what's that would be a competitor to a a social media company like facebook. It turns out that it could have been a competitor and there were arguments and sense that well instagram. You know that something think different than maybe. The acquisition from facebook is what allows startups to be funded. I mean a lot of startups have the their exit strategies strategies to be acquired by these companies. So there was an argument. Saying if you were to stop the acquisitions or mergers you would actually dry up a startup investment comment but I think that the equities now are the the other way that These companies shouldn't be allowed to continue to acquire particularly competitors editors and We've learned that there should be more scrutiny. I sort of see the Democratic Party falling into two sides here one on the Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders side much more interested in really making these companies break up versus other Democrats many of whom see the promise of technology and see themselves as more pro-business Democrats are you there to be that bridge between between those two groups. DC anything like that. But what I see. Is that our country. Our world is facing a technology revolution in globalization. And we have to figure out. How do we prepare a workforce in an economy that's going to prosper given these changes? And how do we bring that prosperity communities left behind. I still believe in the promise of technology but we need three things. We need to share that prosperity with rural America with minority communities and create job job opportunities in some of these places and I worked to do that in Jefferson Iowa and painful Kentucky in Beckley West Virginia and South Carolina. The second thing is we need thoughtful. Thoughtful regulation I mean. We need people who understand technology and can make sure America's that their privacy will be protected online and that they're that they're anti I trust concerns will be addressed but I don't think you can have politicians deny the future. I mean Luddite. Politics Usually does not work historically quickly. What people are looking for is a thoughtfulness about how we embrace the future is there a way in which this rift between Democrats and big tack can be breached or is this something that is only gonNa grow bigger and deeper absolutely? I think it can be bridged. What we need tech leaders to do is to be affirmative in creating jobs and opportunities in communities across this country? I I wish Amazon instead of announcing their headquarters in northern Virginia or in New York had picked in Nebraska or Oklahoma imagine if facebook instead of having to pay a five billion dollar fine had taken a billion dollars. Invested in rural scholarships for stem and in rural newspapers papers and in minority communities for internships. They would be seen in a very different place. So what I think collectively is that we we were self-focused as a country country on innovation and economic growth. And it's a good thing. I mean a lot of good came out of that. I mean Google facebook apple these are still companies that in my have you have Contributed valuable products and a lot of the world's population was lifted out of poverty. which is a good thing? But we were neglectful about the deindustrialization industrialisation of our own country about the stagnation of wages since nineteen seventy nine about communities being left out and we have to be far more intentional far more purposeful full about providing the opportunities of the future the jobs of the future to the communities that have been left out congressman.

Chris it is very odd to hear your voice. So sparkling in my headphones here. Well, I'm sorry. You have to go through that. Immaculate. I'm I could not be happier. This is incredible. Yeah. People should notice. We are. We're going with the different means of recording the show this week. So any and all audio issues any in most audio issues should be put to bed if you have any of you hear anything, let us know. But things should be good moving forward. Let's start with the two thousand eighteen major league baseball World Series. Mr. Khanna, Boston Red Sox loss Angeles Dodgers feeling about this gonna be super interesting. I was going back and forth. The I've picked against the Red Sox every series. I think Chris. So it's it's pretty sweet to see them make it all the way through to beat the vaunted Yankees and the the Astros. It's weird to think of the Red Sox underdogs. But here we are in. I think there were dozen both those series. So you know, it's weird to have a hundred eight win team be that. But you know, they've rallied and Barron unconventional favorite. And you know, starting with the pitcher tonight, which is Chris sale. Not really sure what to expect him. That's been the case around the playoffs. Obviously hospitalized. We'll see what he looks like but going to be really interesting and then the dodgers on the other end. I mean, not many people had them making it here either. I mean, despite the fact that they are loaded in there as close to a juggernaut arisen, the analysis far as money and prospects in everything, but you know, a lot of people at the brewers I think that series. I went back and forth about six times. That was such a fun series. And it'll be if they can replicate it here in the World Series of awesome. Where do you say a lot of lot of Manny Machado controversy where do you stand on Machado? In what way I mean as a as a as a baseball player as a respectable, upstanding baseball. Oh, yeah. Those are two different things. Think about when it comes to jot. Oh is an immense talent. Obviously he had a rough twenty sixteen or twenty seventeen is twenty eighteen was outstanding especially when he got traded. And you know, but the stuff that we saw that brewers series makes me like him a lot less, and it's interesting, you know, starting with free agency last year where he demanded a play shortstop, and then going from there, you know, we're talking about an all world defensive third baseman in a pretty average shortstop. I mean, he's got all the town in the world, but that demand, and then obviously, we've heard this Johnny hustle stuff in the end of that he did not want to run out ground balls, and he doesn't consider himself at now, you have Christian yelich who many people like, and, you know, a pretty popular player and by all accounts, a pretty good, dude.

"Welcome to the underdog episode. Number eighty eight. I'm Chris Hubbard joined by on shoe. Kana Khana. What's going on today? Chris, not too much. We are mere hours away from the outset of the NFL regular season. It's getting close. I'm excited. We get to watch the Philadelphia Eagles stick on the Atlanta, Falcons, and I'm terrified about this contest. Yeah, you know, we spent all off-season all late last season. Assuming that Carson Wentz when push came to shove would be there for this game. The fact that he's not, I think is probably a smart thing. It seems like he's bumping right up against that time line. And you know to get an extra ten days with that minibus plays week too, I think is probably worth it for Peterson co understand the decision from from a logical standpoint, right? But from an emotional standpoint, I just I don't wanna watch Nick foles, throw to Markus Wheaton. Yeah, I totally get that. It's gonna be a real shell of team here for the eagles as far as like you're the guys that hopefully them well, at least some of the regular season, I would say, if you if you think about the ideal version of the eagles, this isn't certain that which I think is kind of a cool things as an eagles and bet. It's that's, you know, at this point almost soom it's not gonna be a win, and if it is with some of the backups, that's just a huge feather in your cap. Gone too. Yeah. Yeah, this for a defense that hasn't really had time to play together and chill. I'm really scared about going up against this Atlanta offense, but you know, casra won the Super Bowl. We shall see. I can't be to Villanova. Got a five star recruit today. All in all. It's good day. So I wanna talk about cut down day and we're gonna talk about the colo- MAC trade in just a moment, but I wanna talk about cut down day and some of the more surprise cuts. I'm gonna give you some names and I want you to tell me where you surprise and and what do you think happens next. And let's start start. David Amerson. Yeah, I guess we'll surprise just because of the tight agree and the height, and you know the length that he's shown recently. We talked about him a little bit when he got signed, but you know, it's I, I guess it's not shocking to me. When you think about how this Astra and holders on..
