Iowa law limits gender identity instruction, removes books depicting sex acts from school libraries
"Iowa governor Kim Reynolds signed a bill limiting gender identity instruction. Teachers in Iowa will be banned from raising issues about sexual orientation or gender identity to students through the 6th grade. Governor Reynolds says this puts parents in the driver's seat when it comes to their children's education. The law also means the removal of all books depicting sex acts from school libraries. Religious books would be exempt. Also, school administrators would be required to notify parents if students asked to change their pronouns or names. Keenan crow with the LGBTQ equity group one Iowa says this legislation punches down on a vulnerable group of kids and it benefits no one. I'm Ed Donahue.

What's in the Biden Docs?
"All right, Mark, I gotta get your initial take on this news that transpired first yesterday. Now even more today, this guy having classified documents that he took as vice president and they're just chilling in his garage mark and in his Corvette, but they're locked away. They're locked away so everything's good. Yeah, well, first of all, the left will call you a conspiracy theorist for telling the truth. This is not hard to figure out. You've got a Republican controlled Congress now sworn in with a speaker who is vowed to investigate the administration. He knows his son's laptop is out there. He knows he's been committing crimes for his last 50 years in Washington. He knows those documents were there. That's why he had lawyers go to get them in advance of the upcoming investigations, they got caught, it leaked. And if you watched the press conference or the White House today with KJ P and watch the media who is now forced to report on this, it's almost as if they're asking questions of her now in the tone. How could you possibly have let us down? We covered you for Trump. We covered Joe Biden, the price cut point. Now we're forced to cover this. How could you possibly be doing this to us? It is not a stretch to understand that this was all, it's not a setup, Biden had this information. He knew he had it, his attorneys are in there taking it out for one reason. To get it out in advance of the upcoming investigations, that's why lawyers were involved. My question is, if you want to get conspiratorial about it, is what did they take versus what did they leave when the story leaked?

How Corrupt Is Joe Biden?
"Had to have just the new Twitter file dump. Lawmakers knowingly Democrat lawmakers knowingly pushed fake Russian narrative about the newness report. So now that's been released. So journalist Matt taibbi today released part 14 on Twitter file showing how congressional Democrats tried to discredit a report by then California representative Devin Nunes regarding the federal government's Trump Russia investigation. The Democrat party is corrupt. Joe Biden knew it, he thought he would be able to get away with it 'cause guess what? This guy has been getting away with it for years. This guy is the president now. When he, what? He lied, he lied about his standing in college, his grades are GPA and all this stuff in college. He literally tried to. He copied speeches, pretended like he had pretended like these speeches that he had spoken, you know, during the, I can't remember if it was a debate or a speech that he was giving was were his. The guy has been cricket. He's been in government for listen to this. He's been in government for a half a century. These people need to go to Washington and they need to go home, but Joe Biden is so dumb and let's be honest about this. He's a very dumb guy. I don't say that to be mean spirited. I say that because it's true. Some people are dumber than others. Joe Biden is, but his meal ticket has been the Senate.

How does this guy become a multi millionaire multi multi multi millionaire? On a salary of what? I don't know what it was when he got into the Senate, but what is it now? A 180 hundred and 80 grand or something like that in the Senate. I'm not sure what the salary is for the VP, but I think that's maybe a couple of hundred grand or something to that effect. This guy is a multi millionaire ten times over. Ten times over. Nice Corvette, so he's got his Corvette. He's got his classified documents. It speaks to a guy that was that was robbing you when he was in the Senate and it speaks to a guy that continued to rob you when he was the vice president and these non skulls that the view that you should not be watching the view.

AG Garland Appoints Special Counsel to Investigate Biden
"So obviously had to forget man, this from Justin news, 18 Merrick Garland today, appointed a special counsel to investigate the classified documents from Joe Biden's time as VP. He said that he initially, he said that he initially appointed U.S. attorney John Walsh and appointee a former president Donald Trump to conduct the initial investigation, but because Laos retiring a different special counsel needed needed to be appointed. So Robert herr, Trump's pick to be the U.S. attorney for Maryland, was appointed a special counsel to continue the investigation. The press conference comes hours after The White House confirmed that a second set of classified documents were discovered in the garage of Biden's home and Wilmington Delaware. Earlier this week, officials confirmed that classified records were found on November 2nd and Biden's former office at the Penn Biden center. Excuse me. So, this is absolutely insane. This is absolutely crazy, and I don't have my cut sheet in front of me 'cause I want, okay, let's get right into this. Excuse me.

Just as with this close to getting them. But you don't have to disappear. Here's the thing. Biden is wrong to have done this. He has an office. Let's find out what this is first. Again. One of the things that gets me crazy is before we know it's already been spun a specific way. I don't want to see that the I want to see someone explain to me a how is possible that after all this time nobody knew this because to me, if you're missing classified information, I don't mean to laugh, but in my house. If stuff is missing, I know it's gonna feel like oppo research to you. Does it feel like the Republicans are behind it? It's not. It did originally but I'm sorry. But oh my God.

Enjoy your show. I appreciate you taking the call. Thank you. First time, caller, I know that the focus of your show is the SEC, but I'd like to give a shout out to my Baylor bears and the job that Dave veranda is doing there to go from a two end team last year to 11 games and the big 12 championship that's pretty good. Not bad for a little baptist university on the banks of the Brazos river. The men's basketball team is the rating NCAA men's basketball champion and currently ranked number two and the women's basketball was currently ranked number 5. Second bears and happy birthday walker. So. Thank you very much. I think Davis is an amazing coach. That was a phenomenal hire there. Let's continue with more phone calls, squirrel is up next. Thanks for taking my call today, Paul. And just a couple of things. And this one's kind of it's an off week, so I thought I'd ask you this question. I'll watch the gorgeous staff will out clothing racks full of 2021 SEC championship t-shirts after the game the other night. Do you guys go to the third world countries or do they get destroyed at the end of the day? I had a friend who was involved in the retail business once. And you always have to do that before the game. And I think it used to go to you should go overseas. I wonder if some people actually think George is a good team and we have all these championships that they know that those are actually one day to be I don't know just pick a country any country to be walking through the streets and see like a soccer team dressed in Georgia 2021 SEC champion t-shirts. I actually seen an Alabama T-shirt home world news site one time. So it is feasible. But if I could go down memory lane, I appreciate you putting on legends call a few weeks ago. It was here in the panic in his voice when I got up on price. Listen, that was a personal milestone to me. I don't know if you realized it, but that was the first time you ever let me step on somebody's call. Usually usually it's the old man stepping online. And speaking of Jim, I'm surprised you didn't hear that F bomb, he dropped on your staff the other day dropped a couple of them actually. And at the end of the call, I don't know how I missed that. Because we all heard it. But you'd be proud, man. I threw up my hands in the prayer for a few weeks ago. He had called in after one of my calls when I told him about when I had to block him after 13 seconds and said that I cursed him and he said as God is my weirdness and we did man up through with my hands with us that lowered please don't strike Jim panel national TV as a way to at least till after 6 p.m. central time if you're going to do it because that dude lad right there. He called in and he had that evil voice at satanic zone because I was so shocked that he called my words were your calling me again and then he launched into me. He says, listen, he went down in that gravelly voice that Satan voice, he said, listen here, you ask who you are going to pitch your L and that's when I hung up and you said things that you want. Oh, you've heard it before. That time he got banned for a while when he dropped F bombs on us after community talked about his little golf game. People were mentioning the balls into the ground. He got us attached voice. He drops into the evil. That's when the devil takes over Jim. I mean, find the devil every day. And then we hear it on the instruction. So yeah, we are. And so we here he is on the radio station lab. But hey, thanks for taking my call. You have a great weekend aloha. Thank you, squirrel. John is up next in St. Louis. Hello, John. Hello, Paul. How are you today sir? We are doing great. Thank you. Good anyway. I wanted to call and kind of change gears a little bit here just for a minute and kind of interject the concern as university, Missouri, basketball fans have these days about our team's performance and specifically related to coach Martin. He just doesn't seem to be able to do a very good job of recruiting I know you've talked to coach Martin over the years and I know you're also getting a lot of input from a very good writer beat writer Dave Matt was supposed to in St. Louis and next time you talked today, I guess or next time you talk to coach Martin, if you could ask him why he can't recruit better and why he can't win basketball games because this is getting to the point of being utterly ridiculous and it's going to get really bad starting tomorrow when we have to go to Lawrence and play in front of a jam packed crowd that fog Allen field house and get totally annihilated in an embarrassed and then the next week have to play a game here at the sava center in St. Louis and get our clocks cleaned by Illinois. So I don't know what else to say. We just kind of thrown up our arms here. We don't really understand what is, I guess what his strategy is to get this program turned around, but it's becoming quite an embarrassment, Paul. Well, John, thank you. Yeah, those are two huge games if you're in a zoo person. Kansas is the rival and I know coach comes from east St. Louis. So Illinois and that's a job, I think he turned down if I remember correctly. So there's a lot of there's a lot of there's a lot of blood there. I will watch it. I will definitely watch the game tomorrow. I'm curious about it, because not had a chance to watch much basketball at all. With the football season, but I am a huge huge fan. So I will.

"The army side of the army navy game yesterday. We'll talk about the navy side with one of the most decorated navy players in history Keenan Reynolds, one of just a handful to have had his number retired. He joins us now Keenan thank you very much for the time. I understand you're on a ship right now. Good afternoon and how are you? I'm doing great. Yeah, I'm here at the USS Intrepid at the museum. I'll make your own and I'm having a blast and just talking about the game, getting excited, ready to rock for tomorrow. Well, certainly your career legendary, this game is the most famous college football rivalry in the country and it's almost prosaic to ask what it was like because I can only imagine the experience of not only being at the academy, but having played such a big role in this storied matchup. Well, what was it like? Yeah, you know, there's been a lot of talk about that and I get goosebumps just thinking about it. The pageantry flyover, the Alma mater singing second, do you know me? I mean, these are all things that make it special. But as a player, you know, you roll up to the stadium and you got 80,000 fans tailgating. You know, people are already in the stands before we even step foot into the locker room. Everybody's excited. People come from all over the world to see this game. It's amazing. And I know the fans are probably they hear this all the time and you get to watch the game on CVS and see the Alma mater and the march on and stuff and fly overs on CBS. But really, it's nothing like seeing it in person, which is really part of the reason why I'm here today. I'm working with USA and army navy house campaign at army navy house dot com where fans can upload upload your pictures, your army baby pictures, your favorite game memories. And you get an opportunity to experience what I'm describing and just because I feel like everybody needs to see it in person. I could talk about it. I'm blue in the face. But until you experience it in person, it's one of those bucket list things, and I get excited and just ready to roll, just even thinking about it. So I love what USA is doing with army nagy house and giving fans opportunity to experience that. Kenan certainly when you're at Annapolis, you deal with some of the most high pressured techniques and training that any one imaginable could go through. And that's one thing. And those are important things as we all know. But what is the pressure like to be in this game, especially at the position you played? It was definitely there. And when I was there, we had the street going, so I'm like, I don't want to be the quarterback that gives up the street. And then after we got three in a row, now I'm like, okay, I got a chance to be the only quarterback to go four. No, I don't want to lose. I can't lose my senior year and give up the street. My senior year, we were having our best year that we'd ever really had. That year I was like, we got to get this win so we can get ten wins and then chance to get 11. So I'm not gonna lie. I was nervous and I get nervous for everything, but I was really nervous about just getting through that game and getting the wind. It was almost like, it almost looks like a relief to get the win. You celebrated, but I was just like, I got three or four years. We beat him. It's a lot, you know? Because you realize how important it is. As soon as you walk on campus, you're yelling out beat army from day one. And you may not even know anything about the military, but one thing you do know is we've been armed. So everybody's watching. You understand you're the only game on TV and millions of people who watch and put all over the world at different military installations or watching. So you think about all that. But the thing is, you try to stay focused on what happens with little whistle between the white line. You didn't have to go through the unfortunate agony, but I can imagine you heard from plenty of people though. And whether it's your commanding officer or the joint chief of staff, it doesn't matter. That's not something you probably want to encounter, is it? No. Having to go through losing the army is just a bad tasting mouth. And then you gotta wait 365 8 before you can even have a chance to kind of get your revenge and you know my time, I spend an NFL. There was a lot of trash talk from the guys come. I mean, they leaked it if we lost. I didn't hear the end of it. So I had to deal with that a couple of times. So that was tough. You know, you walk in, I was talking trash. Hyping my guys up, and then we don't win. Now I gotta deal with the consequences when I walk into work the next day. I know there are plenty of rewards for winning this game and obviously you get presented the trophy. There's a lot of really highfalutin stuff from the president on down. But what was it like to experience the spoils of that victory? Yes, you know, I've never been to a Super Bowl or like been a fan of a Super Bowl winning team, but I would assume that it's equivalent counter to that because that's how it feels like everybody is just from the coaches to all the way down to the youngest, the plea that hadn't played all year. Everybody is just excitement, joy, celebrate. You got other brotherhood that played before you in a lack of celebrating with you. It's just an amazing feeling to be in there and just all the hard work, how hard it gained with how hard it was to get that win. It's certainly something that just kind of just enjoy yourself and just relax and then you get to and then we don't traditionally we never left after right after the game so you get a night to celebrate the win with your team. I mean, it's amazing. As you're now back there and look at looking at this game, the tables have turned, obviously. Army has gotten on quite a streak. How is it, what is it like for you? And how do you process it as just a former player now is the pressure do you still feel it? As you're getting closer to kick-off? No, I certainly don't feel the same pressure I felt as a player, but I really, you know, as a fan as an alumni, you know, you got the bragging rights. Now, it's really about the bragging rights because inevitably run into an orange Brad here or there in the business world. And just people I work with, like I said, they talk about the game. So it's just a pride when you can beat army and you can come back the next Monday and talk trash about the army. And then when you lose, it's like, you know, little bit of shame, a little bit of disappointment. You can't really talk about it. You try to avoid the conversation. So I definitely get very emotional during a game. I feel like almost like either a coach player when I'm yelling at the screen like they can hear me. I know they can't, but I get into it..

"I have two questions for you. The first one is a personal one. I don't know if you've ever gotten this ball, but my fiance and I are set in the same to date for our wedding next October, and we agreed to each invite one famous person. Well, your mind. So I got to figure out where to send your date to your save the date. I know it might not work with the football schedule, but I was wondering if fans ever invited you to a wedding? Very rarely, where were the wedding D? So the weddings in New Jersey and I'm a huge college football fan obviously pause this new every day. So I'll show you that I really fell in love when I agreed to get married in the fall on a Saturday. Are you on The New Yorker Philadelphia side of Jersey? The Philadelphia side, right over the bridge, bob. Okay, I'm just trying to figure out what airport to head into. Unfortunately, I've been to I used to go through Philadelphia every single week on the way to Hartford, so I know my way around the airport. I am going to when we wrap up, I'll put you on hold. I'll tell you, I'll have the person give you my email. And I'll mark it down. And if I'm who knows, this might be better than going to a football game. And my second question, Paul, kind of relates to that. I've been on the show before I called her in the summer. You and I talked about what it was going to be like for you to be back out on the road after a year off and you made a comment that really stuck with me of how you were you don't know what something's like. And so it's gone from you. So I want to ask Paul. Now that you can reflect a little bit, what was it like for you to be back out on college campuses on Friday and just back to what we all love to be around? Rob, this will sound like something you read in one of these motivational books. But I'm going to say it anyway. I did not realize how important it was how exciting it was and how much I enjoyed it. And when you do it every year, and there are no interruptions. Yes, you do take it for granted. But not anymore. Every week was a different experience and did not matter where we were. It just seemed so new again and things that I used to shake my head about and Fred over. I no longer did. COVID had a lot of deleterious effects, but what it did for me and I hope for many others was it did make us pause to appreciate what we have missed. And yeah, it's still not perfect. You know that it would be great if everything was like it was two or three years ago, but it was close enough to perfect for me this year. And I don't know when I've ever had more fun covering college football. That's so great to hear Paul. And I loved watching it. And I agree. Obviously, the past year has been crazy for a lot of us, but it just made you realize things that you appreciate it. You know, is that a high school football game with my dad, nephew and brother in law over Thanksgiving and that's just things that you take for granted. So I agree. And I want to compliment you as I always do Paul. It was such a good job on the show. And I think coaches call a little while ago was really an eye opener to what you do for a lot of us, right? You're fair every day, your knowledgeable and a lot of us look forward to your show. So just keep being you. I mean, I can't stress that enough. Your show makes us laugh, you reflective. You touch all the things. Rob, thanks so much. I am going to put you on hold and I'm going to cross over, is it the Whitman bridge? I'm trying to remember which will be down by the shorts. So you come down, I got to tell you, I gotta bring spring state along and we'll provide the entertainment. Thank you. Make sure you have a little TV at your table. So you go watch out for football too. I might have one of mine, Paul. I am going to plan on that. I'm going to put you on hold now and I'll let you have my contact information. And I'm going to a wedding and filling next year in Jersey. How about on the Jersey Shore? Never thought that would be that hopefully it's not like a mega game. Let's talk to ray, who is in Birmingham. Hello ray. Hey, Paul, I got a couple of questions for you. I'll try to make them real quick. First of all, what do you think about the situation where we are now? I'm an Alabama fan naturally here in Birmingham, but our road type, but I'm also left Kirby smart when he was here. But I'm just wondering where are we now when it gets to the point that a coach can have a winning season and if they don't win everything, people can actually start talking about the losing their jobs because how is that going to be when because we've got so many great coaches now we're looking at lane keeping with the win in season and when how is it that it's not good enough anymore? It's a good question. And I think a lot of factors play into this. I think coaching salaries have just turned the industry upside down. And you just heard from two collars from Louisiana, who were already frustrated with a coach who hasn't even filled out his coaching staff yet. So. We live in an unusual time, and it's never been like this. It's been trending in this direction for a long time. But I think ultimately it's the salaries. I don't know very many people. That can relate to what these coaches are making. I don't want to speak for you, but most of us are trying to earn a living and provide and maybe as you get older save enough money that you'll have some modicum of quality of life when you get to a point where you're going to move on to something else. And when you see a coach clocking in at a $100 million and a coach at quite frankly, hasn't done anything. This isn't the world that I grew up in, and most of us grew up and you work hard. You try to make a good living. You know, maybe you catch a few breaks, but nowadays, because of the way the system is, you really don't have to do very much. You just have to be in the right place and have an agent leak your name to the right person. And you hit the lottery. And I think as a result of that, the rest of us are looking at going you better win or otherwise. And I think that's why we're at this point or maybe it's a tipping point, maybe it's not, but it's a pretty dangerous point. Hey, thank you for the call. I do appreciate it. We will take a break. A lot more to do. On the program, we're going to talk to a former.

"They found out I'm a retired teacher and coach and so they would come by and they'd want to know what the score was. All the nurses and stuff taken care of. They were great. You were great. You helped me through a hard time just watching the show and keeping up with what's going on. I would like to make a comment, I was your guys that take calls. Is I think travel for football teams is a big deal to I you know, when you this summer I had a chance to go to Wisconsin and go up to Green Bay and tour Lambeau Field and everything. And it's kind of like a bucket list thing. And anyway, that weather up there is different. The altitude is different. If you have to fly to California to play the game, jet lagged the real deal. You know, in Michigan and Cincinnati, they're made for, you know, 46 miles an hour winds and 20° below weather, you know, with a blizzard coming in, but I'm not sure Alabama and Georgia would fare well in something like that. And I just kind of want to know what you thought about travel as far as as the championships go and the places that they're going to have to play. Well, you always hear people counter that by saying, they're young guys. But it's still you're still sitting in a cramped plane for a number of hours. One thing that happens during the playoffs versus the regular season is you're there for a couple of days. So you do factor that in. The game is on Friday. I suspect the teams will be there Wednesday at the latest. And the one thing about Dallas for Cincinnati and Alabama, it's not that far. And Miami is not that far for the other two. Now I'm not 17. That would be pretty obvious. But travel can get you. And this season has been a little bit different because two years ago I traveled 5 days a week and I can assure you I was a zombie by the end. I literally didn't know where I was on top. Well, I'd say one of the Friday night after I had the brain surgery, I thought I was a zombie for a while, man. Well, hey, tell me, tell me this before you go. You sound good. So how are you, how is your recovery coming along? I can not tell you how good the nurses were. I had the surgery up in Shreveport. They went through my nose, cracked my skull. They took the big lesion off my pituitary gland. And that was Friday. Two days and ICU one day in regular room and they cut me loose. Now I've been weak. I mean, the medicine that they gave me waning off of painkillers and stuff. But like I said, I'm watching Paul find bob. I'm all right. Hey, listen, coach, we're glad to hear you're doing better. You take care of yourself. We'll have an update on the Dan landing situation in a couple of minutes. It's now being reported. He is a candidate. He just hasn't been offered the job, but sometimes that stuff is just push back because maybe they haven't gone through the correct hoops before they can acknowledge it. This is like watching sausage being made..

"The pride passion and pageantry of college football lives here. This is the Paul Fein bomb show hour three podcast. Echo, we are here and continuing with more of your phone calls more guests to come. And who knows what else we will be talking about. Pierce is in Louisiana. He'll appear. How's he going Paul love the show am? Thank you very much. I just want to get your opinion on some stuff about what's going on with Brian Kelly down in bed roof. So he's cleaning house or whatever and obviously, I don't know the specifics or anything, but Corey Raymond leaves to go to Florida. And I'm just wondering, your opinion on Brian Kelly may be negatively impacting the culture in Baton Rouge. He gets right at the strength and conditioning coach who's been there for a bajillion years and now Corey Raymond and who basically and built the culture. So I'm just wanting to get your opinion on that. And yeah, that's pretty much it. Well, Pierre, thank you. Yeah, I understand the concern. Now, you also have to factor in that the Brian Kelly is trying to put his own imprint on this university and he should have the ability to bring his own staff. And I understand the heritage there, and it's important, but you have to be comfortable with your staff. You can't just retain someone because he's part of the past. That's all I know about it. And until I know more, it would be difficult to say whether he's doing right or wrong. Frank is up next in Louisiana. Hello, Frank. I'm a Paul, thank you. And I just want to reiterate what pierce was saying. Yeah. Because I think personally, LSU dropped the ball by letting Billy Napier go to Florida. Here's why, because just look what Billy Napier did came from Alabama, came into a program, turned it around and like pierce was saying, Kelly let understand like you said, Paul, you know, he's got to make his own imprint. What Paul, you don't let go, the number one number two strength coat. And then he let go, Kevin faulk, who has three Super Bowl rings, okay, for somebody from magnes state. How can you go to a kid's house to recruit him? I'd rather have somebody like Kevin faulk who has three rings. That's a better recruiter than somebody in Lake Charles. And just one more thing. If Brian Kelly does not turn it around here in Baton Rouge, if three years, everybody from the AD down is going to be gone because people in Baton Rouge in the supporters are not going to let their football team turn into mediocrity. He thought you follow what I'm saying and I just don't I just don't feel it. Especially if Florida comes in next year with Billy Napier and beats LSU I might start, you know, Frank, the one thing that I completely agree with you on is this. Brian Kelly like it or not, he's going to be judged against Billy Napier because I had heard in October. I was in I was in Lexington the day of the LSU Kentucky game and I was talking to some big marketing marks from LSU at the hotel. And then they had their wish list, Jimbo et cetera. You know all that. But they felt the backup choice was Billy Napier. He said, if we can't get Jimbo, we may take a swing at somebody else, but we feel like Billy Napier is a good fit. So that was then and it's obvious to all of us that Scott Woodward did not think Billy Napier was big enough for that job in terms of name and marquee value. He brought in Brian Kelly. And nothing that Brian Kelly is doing is surprising to me. He's his own man, and he's done it his own way for 35 years. Now, the one thing that some of us wondered about, would he be able to survive in that culture, which is a tough culture? You understand? LSU fans are great, but they could also be tough. And that's what I'm hearing from you. And I can't offer anymore. I mean, I want to hear you, obviously. But I don't know what he's doing. I do know a lot of coaches come in and they usually keep or retain a couple of people just for a transition, whether they survive or not ultimately is decided a year or two down the road, but it's always best to keep some people around that know their way around the state. And I just don't think the Brian Kelly brand of football is going to play in the SEC because the SEC and where he came from a Notre-Dame is two different animals. But we've got to find out next year. He did bring back Frank Wilson, though, so I mean, there's a tradeoff on everything. I must tell you, I'm pretty surprised to hear some of this already. Kelly has only been there a couple of days. He's putting a staff together. And when you get rid of players, you get rid of coaches. But don't forget, the last two years have not been great. And who knows what Brian Kelly knows and what he's been told by people down there. And some of these things are not as obvious as we think they are. I'm not defending Kelly. He can do whatever he wants. Coach is up next. You're on the air. Go ahead. Hello. Hey, coach, good afternoon. Hey, Paul. Thank you for taking my call. I appreciate it. Not to not to say what happens. I had brain surgery last Friday. Oh my goodness. Literally, I was in the ICU Saturday and Sunday. And I was really, really mad about the fact that I thought I was going to miss football. Saturday and Sunday. They had a big screen TV in the room and you know they got the little white board and they asked you what you want to be called. That's what I said coach..

"Yeah, I don't think those are the definitive 7. Those are the 7 I decided to go with, but like you said there's many, many more as we know there's hundreds, hundreds and thousands of different feelings and emotions we have as human beings, but those are the 7 that I decided to land on because those were the 7 parts of myself. I felt like time when I first started writing it. The 7 characters range in age from late teens to mid 60s and the elder wisdom brilliantly played by Esau prichard speaks about respect history and ancestry, Tristan Mack Wilde plays anger and laments consumerism and the objectification of black athletes, Brian Terrell, Clark, please the character of happiness and challenges notions about black struggle and class with his success and his money and his orientation, talk about the role of stereotypes and tropes that you're trying to dispel. Too often in entertainment, we are often betrayed as the athlete. The gangster, someone, of low education, fatherless, and the list goes on. I wanted to create a piece to not show the perfect black man, but to show the black man in its entirety. And in doing that, you have to show the good, the bad and the ugly. Because that is the human experience. One of the things I follow in my storytelling is what Langston Hughes said, he said we are good and ugly too. So showing a story of spectrum to show a true human story to be able to build empathy and is reader or viewer that doesn't mean to create a perfectly politically correct, unflawed character. Showing a human story is showing someone in all of their flaws. Because that's where you get the relatability. And that's what I wanted to create in these men and I wanted to show them in different ways. I wanted to show a business owner, an entrepreneur in wisdom. I wanted to show a husband who was happily married to a black woman and they're excited that their child is on the way. We don't often see that. Yes, I have the athlete, but we often don't see what happens or how that athlete feels when they are discarded. When they can no longer be superhuman on the court or the field, who are they as human beings? I wanted to also show that the young guy that don't know no better. You know, that all he wants to do is chase women and really doesn't even know who he is yet because he's only a 20 year old and making all the mistakes in the world. I wanted to show a character that was full body and just happened to be gay. Because none of us should be portrayed in that singular way. You know, I wanted to show him to him to have the representation of being from a different class and being able to have those conversations centered around not only identity sexually, but identity as far as class in community and culture, so these are things and the layers that I wanted to show that are not often shown for black men. And when they are normally all of these men and not seen together. And you would think that all of these men could not exist, and they do. These men walk around my community and all the communities that I've ever ever lived in. And that's what I wanted to showcase. I wanted to show the spectrum all at the same time to see the range to show that we are not monolithic. I loved the way you wrote the character who we ultimately find out is gay. Because until he states that he is, and he's talking about his relationship, I think, most of the people in the audience, just assumed that he was a heterosexual man talking about his wife, and I loved the way you played with us in that way. Keenan you see, you don't write perfect characters that you create them all to be flawed, because that's where we see humanity. What do you think are the flaws that make us most human? All of them. You know, it's hard to pick one, right? And human beings, we are so flawed. We at times have egos. We fall into temptation. We lack the servant at times. There's a lot of things that I can name, but I think through all of those flaws, hopefully most of us are on a journey to avoid those mistakes, fix our flaws, be the best person we can be until we reached out in days. That's what makes the human existence beautiful. That most of us internally don't want to dwell in our shortcomings and our flaws. And we want to set ourselves on a journey to correct all of those things. And I think that's what makes our existence beautiful. You've said that you identify most with your character named passion. Yes. Why is that? I'm a passionate person. I've always always have been when I often speak my passion gets confused to something else 'cause, you know, I speak very passionate, I'm very high energy, especially when it comes to my art and things that I love. And I've always been driven by my passion. I've always regardless of what I was doing in life, whether I was football, basketball, painting, writing. I was always very passionate about it. And very disciplined about it. And like the character of passion, me also being an educator. I was passionate about the youth. And I was passionate about helping them and saving them in the best way I could, whether that was showing them that I am them and there is a way out. And the negative things and choices can be avoided. So for me, the character of passion was always very close to me and probably has most of my DNA in that character. Passion also delivers the last message of the play as the last bit to say. Is that a moment of optimism you're trying to provide? Absolutely. Absolutely. I've always been optimistic more at some times than others. But I'm naturally an optimistic person and I think in the entertainment field, you have to be extremely optimistic because you spend most of your career hearing knows. Until you might hear that one yes, and hopefully string that one yes to another yes. And hopefully create a sustainable career. But in this field, I think you have to be so optimistic about what's to come where your career is going to go. The test that you're trying to fulfill and the goals that you're trying to acquire get you to a certain point..

"This is a common denominator for young boys of color. How did you manage that emotionally? How did you feel as you witnessed this sort of different standard for the boys around you? You know, as a young kid, it angers you. Because as a kid, you still notice the treatment is different. And we see that often in the news now. When a young black boy loses his life, he's usually described as a man. And he is a child. My wife counterparts males, they're still considered boys up in psychology age. You know, so me being an educator, even looking back at my you've realizing how easy is for us to slip through those cracks just from the difference of reading level. When certain behavior is exhibited, it's treated more harshly. We are suspended more because of the learning curve. We are sent to special education more than our white counterparts. And these are things that I might not have had the terms for when I was a boy. But I definitely did feel that. And that treatment is internalized and that rage starts bubbling that anger starts to start this fire inside you and you don't really know how to explain it or where it comes from as an adolescent. And those things and it could be acted out in different ways, right? Whether that's frustration towards your peers, adults, authority, we have to learn how to handle adult situations before we're even adults. And that's a very hard thing to navigate. So for myself, I've always had a village around me. My family has always been here to support me I was raised by a village and I contribute who I am to them and then pouring in confidence in love, enjoy self awareness and all of those things that my family gave me, which I know some of my peers didn't have. And their lives took very, you know, different paths than myself. So I'm contributing a lot of that to my family, the village that raised me and God always feel like God has had his hand on me. And but here I am, and I can only, you know, do the best I can do and try to be the best person I can be. Well, you've talked about how that frustration and that anger was met outside the house with punishment instead of care and understanding. Absolutely. Seems to actually perpetuate the problem and make it worse. Absolutely. How did you begin to understand how to make sense of that frustration and that anger and ultimately that rage? It just came in time. There's really not one answer for it. I just know, as I'm matured, as I started to experience more things, my frustration in my anger got fueled and put into my art. And to me playing sports, you know, I was very much so focused on playing football and basketball growing up, basketball being my main sport. Me always being an artist and always funneling that energy in a word and into those things, especially my art, eventually into my performing and writing. So for me, that was my saving grace. And, you know, now being married with the child, I've become way more retrospective about my thinking and my acting because it's not just for myself. It's for my family. So me, I'm always on the quest spiritually to be the best person I can be. Be the best leader I can be for my household, be the best husband be the best father. Be the best brother and friend. It's evolution. You moved to the suburbs of Maryland, as you were about to go into high school, where you, as you mentioned, we're playing football. But also rating poetry. That's quite a range. What first motivated you to turn to poetry as a way to express yourself? So actually, I moved to the suburbs of Maryland before I got to junior high school. For me, growing up, especially elementary school, the beginning parts of junior high. I struggled academically, especially when it came to English. I always excelled in all my art classes and things like that, but I didn't realize until I was older that I was actually dyslexic. So therefore, it affected my learning and how I received information as a child. And I would say that I never had a teacher take the time to figure that out about me and figure out what my strengths were. So I could excel academically. And that goes back connects to the conversation we just had about how young black boys are viewed older than what they are, you know, I almost slipped through the cracks because with the young black boys, we're often not approached with care and impatience. So therefore, it's like, oh, if the struggle academically, you need to go to special education. And that's where I was sent for many of my courses. It wasn't until 6th grade. I was at the elementary school. I was putting all special Ed classes. So when I was a youth, talking back in the 90s, there wasn't inclusion classes. So when we use in special Ed usually, you was in a basement, you was around the corner. You was in a classroom that was off away from everybody else. And I remember being in 6th grade, a lot of my peers, weren't in special education. They was in, you know, regular courses and or honors courses. And at that time, I internalized that in a way to where it made me feel dumb. So I never forget asking my guidance counselor to put me in all honest classes, which is wild, right? Go from special education to skip regular average courses, but they called it. They called it average classes to honors. And my goddesses said, are you sure that's not a usual? I said, yes, I want to be an all honest classes. Such and such, my Friends, they're doing it. I hang out with them every day. I think I can do it too. And kudos to my mother, she said if Keenan says he can handle those classes, then he can handle it. From that day forward, I was never in special Ed classes again. 6th grade was the last time..

"His play and his career. Kenan Scott the second, welcome to design matters. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for having me. How are you? I'm good. I'm good. I'm very excited to talk to you about your life and your work. Keenan, I understand that your father was a New York policeman and your grandfather was a Vietnam veteran. Yes. So I'm guessing that you're coming from a long line of heroes. Yes, and my great grandfather was actually in World War II. So I come from a lineage of military veterans for this country, as well as servicemen, which my father was. He works for NYPD for 21 years. How do you feel now about the way that the police and sort of non police are managing this complicated time? You know, that's a tough one. My plight as a young black man has an afforded me to still avoid the negative sometimes interactions and relationships between myself and police officers. I do know that, you know, through my father, there are a lot of hardworking, honest, straightforward, police officers, that just want to go out, do their job, be safe and return home today families. But unfortunately, as we know, due to others, their attitudes and their actions have pretty much blanketed all of the police force. I think more so the issue is when those bad apples do do something truly being held accountable. Like I was an educator for 11 years. And I know for us when things happen when teachers don't always do the right thing, they are held accountable. And you will not see them as a teacher again. And I think everybody can understand that. And just like teaching firefighters, police officers, I think these are high morality jobs, right? But I think it's also the responsibility of these institutions and these workforce to hold their own accountable. And I think that's what the people want to see. And I think honestly, that's what the black community wants to see. So this has been an ongoing problem. Historically, in the black community, either looking back how the police force was originally created in this country and in who they were created to patrol. So that's kind of a hard question for me to answer. But I would say, you know, I do notice some great offices out there doing their jobs. I think the ones that don't do a great job just need to be held accountable like everybody else. You grew up in flushing queens in the Pamela housing project. I spent many years of my childhood and Howard beach queens, by the way. I lived in how I lived in Howard beach for like three or four years actually. But so I am familiar with Howard beaches. Well, I lived there as an adult. Oh, okay. I was going to say, where did you go to elementary school? No, no, no, no. This was actually an adult. That was a small portion of my life. But yes, I grew up in flushing. And Pamela houses. And I attended PS 200 while I was there on July avenue. Even though where you grew up, there was a police precinct across the street. Literally. You've written about how you could watch fights with boys with razor blades under their tongues. And you've written about how fighting showed you that you were a man that could survive in a city where many are raised by wolves. I mean, aside from it being absolutely beautifully written, it is somewhat horrifying to think that that's what it felt like as you were growing up. How did you feel like you could survive where many are raised by wolves? You don't know. And that is the danger of it all. Unfortunately, people outside of the community don't realize that there are things that the youth and people have to partake in for survival. And a lot of times it's not by choice. You know, I grew up a shy kid, you know? I don't want to, you know, I was in picking on nobody. I stayed out of people's way. I was quiet. I didn't want to fight nobody, but due to, you know, now we're talking early 90s, New York, there were certain things that we had to do. And I was raised to protect myself. And unfortunately, a lot of times, I was in situations where I had to do so. But the true danger of it all in those environments is not knowing what is going to happen what the next day is going to bring. And that's the part that gets scary when growing up in environments like that, a lot of it seems natural. I was seeing, you know, at times, the drugs, the violence and things of that nature, but on a flip side, my childhood was beautiful. You know, it was a vibrant time in New York. It was, you know, hip hop is at his height and in my storytelling. I try to show both both sides of it because it wasn't just all one way. But absolutely, there was there was a lot of things that I experienced growing up in the projects in New York, like many others. I understand you saw the movie Toy Story when you were 7 years old and decided right then and there that you wanted to work for Pixar. Did you want to work in animation? Or did you want to work in storytelling? Animation, animation. So I always like to say my God given talent is drawing. I've been doing it since I could remember. I don't remember at times starting anything I can get my hands on, whether I was, you know, crayons, to charcoals, the water colors. So that's like my first love in life. And I believe Toy Story, the first one came out, 7, I was like 7, 8 years old, I believe, so that's about 94. I think the movie came out. And it changed my life. I remember asking teachers and asks my parents to say, hey, what is that called? What is that? And remember it being so new, but somebody telling me, hey, those are computer animators. So most of my life growing up, I always told people, I want to, you know, I want to go into computer animation. Not owning a computer or even knowing how all of that worked. I just knew whatever Toy Story whoever created that. I want to do that. So I still have dreams of working for Pixar. Most likely you'll be on the storytelling side. Maybe some voice acting, but yeah, Pixar very much so it was a dream for me growing up. You've talked about how as you were growing up, adults treated your adolescent emotional life as that of someone much older than you, which held you to a higher standard than your white classmates..

She's been busy working on other projects, including one called Julie and the wrong guys. She also paired up with mount Erie on the lost wisdom part two project, and they came in to do a tiny desk in late 2019 with that. But I'm in love with this new album called I thought of you and I asked Julie to tell us all about the opening track you gave me the key. So previous to writing you gave me the key I had been laying low and going within and doing inter searching and getting healthy. And then I made it through the fall and winter in spring and it was summertime. And I was starting to spend more time with friends and I was starting to do shows and I was, yeah, I was meeting wonderful people and having good experiences. And it was ready to laugh again and to be out there in the world. And so one day I had an afternoon off actually at a friend's apartment. And I picked up her guitar and all these lyrics came pouring out and the music came pouring out. And so it was very spontaneous, very intuitive, not a lot of editing if any actually. And the same thing happened when we went in the studio with the musicians on the album. We didn't really rehearse. They hadn't heard the song previously. And it all came together very quickly. It was very natural, Daniel Romano and guitar, his guitar parts are amazing. I can't imagine the song without it and the drumming Ian Romano's drumming is so awesome and Dani placa bass playing is super sweet. And so yeah, this group of musicians really helped to keep the song spontaneous sounding and everything was just very intuitive for this to the lyrics, the writing.

"Keenan and J. Kirshner in this hour of the program, trying for perfection, But being human, I think that's probably the best. Thing we can. We can wrap ourselves around being who we are. And who are you? And why is it that you feel strongly about things most of the time people that React to programs like this are people have strong feelings and strong intellect as well. Or are you thinking and living what you're thinking? Or your thoughts? Things, I guess is the Question. I'd like to think that mine are and they turned out to be even though I doubt my self. Sometimes I was explaining earlier why it was that I felt okay, if not good. About getting the vaccines. It's a very personal thing, and it's unfortunately the personal side of his being taken away from us by all the mandates, But then you think about okay, Well, how do you Fix it. I'm not for the mandate. I'm I think it's against the principle of pretty much everything. I'd rather think that you could get. How is it different from having kids in school being needing to have certain shots to go to? I don't think that the lot of the vaccines they're required for school or necessary. Frankly, some are some aren't That's sort of that's where I've been all my life, my daughter, not my son. I don't make the decisions. But I did help to make the decisions because the two of us, Tony and I made the decision about the kids. As they grew up, and they had many of the vaccine. Their mom, they didn't have them all. I thought it was interesting. Victoria and J that this hospital in New York is not going to deliver any babies because A number of staffers quit rather than get vaccinated. So what does that tell you? It does that make you worry about the vaccine or have the two of you and made up Now I like to do a couple of first of all this story is in upstate New York. It was like a handful of nurses. Yeah, it's a handful of nurses. It's and this. This has gone around the country and has gone has become such a much bigger headline than it is. I don't know. It just isn't that the truth with most stuff that gets, Yeah, it gets blown out of proportion. Sure, but by the way, if I was having a baby, I wouldn't want any of my doctors or nurses to not be vaccinated. I have a friend who's a doctor in Alabama, and he just lost a patient to Covid, who was a brand new mother who just gave birth. She got covid while giving birth. She didn't want to get the vaccine while she was pregnant, and she died 11 days after she gave birth and she has a newborn baby at home now, and she's gone so and she got it in the hospital from someone who was unvaccinated. I don't want that to happen If I'm in labor, No, thanks. I'll go to another hospital, Go somewhere else where everyone's vaccinated and people actually follow science. I don't know. I just I got I'm not the end of the my tolerance wrote with this. Yeah, okay, but But you have made up your mind and you make good decisions for yourself and you and you make a rational argument. Ford. Some people don't I thought was pretty interesting. This weekend in Washington this past weekend there was a Georgetown University School of Medicine prophet who held a basic It was basically Um, a rally for black people to understand why they need to have the shot because you know, among blacks. It's been a pretty what 30% Maybe. Have gotten it. They don't trust the government. They don't trust medicine, even lower among Hispanics. I think that there needs to be so much more outreach and so much more education and, yeah, it's You know, I mean, culturally, you know, there are a lot of black men Cam Newton being one of them. You know who famously from, you know, just released from the Patriots, which you know, you can say it's it's because he wasn't vaccinated. Okay, But if you're the quarterback and you know when you get covid, and then the whole team grinds to a halt, and you have, and then the whole team gets fine fish. It is. And so that's why a lot of the teammates weren't really you know, they're not really happy with people who are not going to get vaccinated when 90% of the NFL players are, but you know, but with you know, within the black community, and especially with black males, there is this like, I don't know if it's an Internet rumor. I don't know where it started. But there is this whole concern about it, you know, preventing the vaccine. You know, prevents you from being able to father Children and culturally like that's a huge issue that needs to be addressed, and it's not factual. It's not based in science. It's not real, but it is a It's this manufactured concern about it. And I just don't hear Dr. I don't hear enough people. Reaching out to the black community and dispelling these rumors. I don't know where they start. But you know, all it takes is for one friend to tell one friend and then it's just no one wants the vaccine. It's awful. It's really It's so now in the U. S. Is doubling the fine for people who break the rule if you don't wear a mask on a plane It was $1000. Was it or was 500. Now It's a It was 500 for a first offense, And now it's 1000 and the second offenses of 1015 100 or 2000 people, I would be curious to know. How many people have actually been fined under this people who have refused to wear masks most. I've been on that many planes in the last month or so, but I was on a number earlier on in the summer. And probably starting next month. I'm going to be on a lot of planes for the next six months or so. And I you know, I don't It hasn't bothered me one way or another. But you've got to if you're going to be on a plane for normal time. Thank you know, I know, I know. People accuse you of being abnormal. No, but it's because like you have, you know, because you have common sense. 74% of these incidents where we've been hearing you know, a flight attendant on Southwest got two of her teeth knocked out because really passenger didn't want to wear a mask. It's 74% of the incidents are all related to people refusing to wear a mask. If you know you're going on a flight, you know you have to wear a mask. This is so stupid that people are acting like Creighton's an awful On flights. They do not mess around. There is like not a whole lot of tolerance for things, and this was before Covid. It's just like people are like totally forgetting. It is a tough time to be, uh, person in this country in this world it is. This is a tough time to be a flight attendant. That's for sure. Well, it is. But it's a tough time. Just generally speaking. I'm sure that the Biden people didn't want to make the mandate. I'm sure that there are people who getting shots that don't want to get shots, but they want to protect their jobs, or they're protecting Their pensions or whatever it is that they're protecting. Get that and so where do we go from here?.

"We love them. We finally got to see. Emily moins. And our queen are queeg Cues so hossack legs sister and brother were there as well and i just first of all. I wanna talk about their date. Before we met their parents. They did like you know canada. They were little bar. They play darts. And what was the they played. They played like truth or dare darts kind of it was like the balloon pop. There's a little thing inside. Blake moins is just authentically himself all the time he was like. What's your to grab your favorite body parts or whatever it is on katie and just like full-blown ask grab loved it to cheeks. He's he's so himself. And it's honestly very refreshing. It is how do you feel about blake. An katie's connection. Because i feel like there's a lot of mixed reviews and i feel like we might be biased a little bit. We're definitely we were probe lake. Were really pro. Emily moines so it's like we just feel like the connections there. How do you feel watching it. I love them together. Because i feel like their connection is not super bachelorette if that makes sense like they seem like they would be dating just in real life And i think like the show moves so fast that often you can kind of like fall into a way more serious relationship in a super short amount of time and they just seem to be taking things like at a normal piece So yeah i think their connection is great. I wonder where it will be after next episode. But yeah i hope like i hope blake i guess i i just. I'm i'm rooting for. Blake is all. I can say about that we are. We're also rooting for blake. Because like you said this point. I know but nailed it with the word refreshing. Like i really think that their relationship is very refreshing. And it does they the way they interact. It does feel like they would be a legit couple on the outside like they have that connection. I do like that. Blake has been not rushing things trying to get his feelings out on his own time. Which is why. Emily moins coming in with so great because she's like if you love this crawl man. Fuck up man this is. It's time that man the heller. You lover yes i loved and that's why i said emily moins that's why she's got a book because she knows what she's talking about. Yeah i i felt that lady. I just need to talk about her for a second. The you all confidence she did. A full fit detail video on instagram tired. Like it was like everyone's been asking about my alfred last night like full outfit. Deeds house what she wants. That woman knows what she wants and knows what she deserves and is letting everyone know how to get back. Like don't do this feel like she's so comfortable in herself. Yeah emily moins. Yeah the best mom that's appeared on that show. It's been great and the whole family does like the way they all talk to each other felt very relatable. And they're her mom and his sister were like what's the deal like. Come talk like let's let the fellow real conversation. Compared to like sometimes the very skeptical conversations parents give and siblings give their like in the. You need to be rescued times. Like you're you're watching and you're like there's definitely a process to this you know and like the parents seem to be asking questions like all the right questions and that hometown felt like just so real and i think their connection seems really real to me so because i feel that his family is familiar with the show exotic. They're well versed in what hometowns look like and they were asking the right questions compared to parents who are like. I can't fucking believe my kid is on this show and like trying to come up with questions that makes sense but like not be super skeptical. Emily moines's like i know how this shit works. Yeah and that's why. I think blake and his family would be good for katie. Because at least they do kind of get how it works. Whereas other families are a little bit more sceptical. They're like what is this whole thing. They've only heard about it through the grapevine like they know the deal they know what they have to deal with afterwards. So i feel like that's why i kinda make sense but obviously shit went down later on the yeah and and that's a good segue into justin's hometown because just justin just bear so key adjusted justice. Parents didn't show up he's from baltimore and they had their cute little fake baltimore moments and then it was just kind of like sad. I'm curious get like if you were katie in situation. And just his like my parents are incoming. I feel you automatically. Are eliminating him in your. Hey like oh your parents aren't like don't wanna don't wanna come. How good we get engaged. Yeah i mean. I i definitely agree. I think i would be like you know. You don't wanna like right off your connection with the person because at the end of the day. It's you and that other person but obviously like having the reassurance from the family completely changes things like seeing how you would mesh with the family after the fact like that's so important to know so yeah. I think i'd be pretty devastated like if the person's family didn't show up. Yeah right because at the end of the day it is like their connection that matters. But if your family doesn't approve of a connection you may be having a good time with that person but then underlying. There's always that weirdness with the family like your family's your family. Yeah so it's going to be more at some point in your life you're gonna have to come to terms with it and it's just like probably an uncomfortable conversation after that it's also like i just don't think you could get engaged. Yes you know like you would at least have to meet the parents before taking that next step. So and that's like the goal of the whole show. So i don't know it's a tough one there and i think maybe our opinions would be different if we all like expected it to be justin like blake moines family. Didn't show up we'd be like. Oh what the fuck like. This is kinda crazy new justin. There's nothing there i mean. I don't know a katy. Katy at one point said our chemistry is undeniable and i was just like what chemistry. I'm missing something i know. I always go back to the wedding valerie. Friendly to me. i just don't know any case. I think they're more. i mean. obviously we only see parts of their life while they're filming. So i think that we must be not like seeing all those little genuine moments that make a relationship And so i think yeah. We're missing a little bit of that there. Yeah i just don't know how she can say that. There is a genuine connection with justin. When arguably the connection with greg and blake is way stronger like i would just cancel out that connection. I'd be like there's not really a connection there but once again i guess right just sent himself home. Katie wouldn't be like i'm leaving. Yes i you know so it was. They salvaged the hometown. He had his two buddies come but it was just it had an underlying kind of like sad tone to it just because it was. I just imagine being like yeah my can you guys like please come. Perr insult i hurts. Yeah and his friends were obviously there for them and they were very sweet and ask katie like good questions and they clearly know justin very well even katie shoes. I'd be like oh your parents don't wanna come then like i don't wanna be right meeting. His two best friends feels like a fourth date. Not like the date. Getting right like i would at that point. I'd like justin and justin probably was out of the equation after that but then yeah. We have a ton to unpack here with gregg before we do that. Just a reminder guys.

Perseverance Rover, Ingenuity Helicopter, and the Search for Ancient Life on Mars
"On April 6th in this desolate Martian crater 170 million miles from Earth. Perseverance posed for a selfie with ingenuity. The little helicopter it had just dropped off. Two weeks later. The rovers cameras recorded ingenuity is historic First flight hovering 10 ft. Off the ground for 30 seconds. It may not look like much, but for those who work so long to make it happen. It was a reason to rejoice. Project manager Mimi on led the team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California that's been working on ingenuity for six years. How hard is it to fly a helicopter in Mars? Very, very, very hard. We really truly started with the question of is it possible? A lot of people thought it could not be done because it's really counterintuitive. I mean, you need atmosphere for the place to push atmosphere to get lived. The atmosphere on Morris is completely different than the world atmosphere at Mars is so thin. I mean the room we're in, right. It's compared to that It was 1% of the atmospheric density over there, so The question of really Can you generate enough lift, you know, to really build to lift up anything. That was a fundamental question. In subsequent flights. Ingenuity has gone higher and farther, traveling more than a mile in all over the surface of Mars. It is a triumph not only for NASA, but for its partners in the private sector, who helped make various parts of the helicopter. Don't Let it go. Don't freak out. Matt Keenan has a history of making unusual things that can fly as an engineer at a company called AeroVironment, which produces drones for military and civilian use. I mean, that's incredible 10 years ago for a military research project, Keenan and his team created this robotic hummingbird, which has a tiny camera on board. Whoa! Oh, there it is. Oh, my God. That's amazing. Keenan, an engineer, Ben Pipe Enberg led the AeroVironment team that created ingenuity is rotors motors and landing gear. Why was this so challenging because it has to be a spacecraft as well as an aircraft. And and flying it as as an aircraft on Mars is pretty challenging because of the density of the air That's similar to about 100,000

"Yes, British nursing and everyday conversation, reassuring someone who's about to get a jab and then with just two words for done for history is made. But if you think that was the moment the world's first ever completed, covert 19 vaccine was given to a patient 91 year old Margaret Keenan. It happens with typical British understatement, but it is no less extraordinary. Never before has a vaccine being made so quickly and with such high stakes Care home in Eastern England. Nurses helped us safely record the reaction of those most at risk and whose lives may depend on the vaccine. One elderly resident put it in the starkest terms. Well, it's our life, isn't it?

So why do you think it's important to you to have it? Well, if no either I go to the hospital You know, being ill or drop dead. The reason the U. K is the first to distribute the vaccine is in part due to its hedging its bets the government put in billions of pounds worth of orders for different vaccines without knowing which would be completed first all be the most effective.
