Danielle Covers the Recent Loss of the Georgia Senate Race
"We just got the sad news that Herschel Walker has lost his race for the United States Senate. Warnock unfortunately will continue to be one of Georgia's senators. And something I want to draw attention to is that Georgia, traditionally a red state, maybe now a purple state because of Atlanta. Is literally represented as though it is a blue state. Georgia will continue to have two Democrat senators representing them in Warnock and ossoff. I find this really weird because Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate, cleanly and clearly won his race for governor in Georgia this fall. So something is going on here where for some reason, people are voting red for statewide offices, yet voting blue for nationwide offices. We apparently saw very high turnout in the runoff, but it may not have been enough Republican voters turning out Herschel. So what does this mean for us as a nation? This means that the Democrats will have a 51 majority. So an even greater majority than they had before. This means they will no longer need Kamala Harris as a tie breaker vote. This also means that senator Manchin and senator sinema will carry a little less weight than they had before and being able to block the runaway train of the radical Democrats. So this is all very bad news. But the good news is, the Republicans have taken the house so we have a narrow margin there. So we will hopefully be able to get some things done hopefully be able to prevent the nation from getting far worse too quickly. But the house has had no say in confirming appointments. So those will likely all go through the Democrat controlled Senate and presidency and be confirmed.
Herschel Walker Loses Georgia Senate Race
"Big news coming out. That Herschel Walker did not win. The election. And so we'll talk about that right now and I know that there's a lot of people that may want to make an excuse, but I believe that there's no excuses that need to be made. We literally did not win the race. We did not win. And if you see that Brian Kemp won and we lost, this race, then that tells you something. It tells you that we did not compete and we did not do the things that were necessary to win this race. It wasn't cheating. It wasn't ballot harvesting and none of that of the stuff because those things, we could have done to if you help ourselves in this particular election, but we didn't do what it takes to win. And I'm glad to see that Herschel Walker made up in his mind that he was going to say he's not going to make any excuses and that we just did not run a good race. Let me give you some numbers. I think I had them here. So if you didn't watch the election, I think with 99% of the vote in, I don't know if they have a 100% of the vote, but this is as of the 7th, which is today 9 45 a.m. this morning. Harsher walker ended up getting 48% of the vote and Raphael Warnock got 51% of the vote. So he got beat by a pretty decent margin.
Van Jones: Herschel Walker Is an Insult to the Black Community
"You've got van Jones out there on CNN last night. Talking about how Herschel Walker was an insult to the black community, cut number 8. Yeah, you know, I hope so. I mean, that could happen. What I do know is this. Tonight is about Georgia. And tonight is about Trump picking somebody who frankly used to be a hero. Herschel Walker used to be an inspiration. Now it means insults. He's an insult to the black community and what you may see tonight is people coming out and not just to vote in favor of a senator that they love, but just to vote against Donald Trump picking somebody like this and throwing this person at the voters in Georgia. Like, well, you'll just pick anybody who's black. His judgment, Trump's judgment. Tonight is going to be, I think, called into question by a lot of people. And I think that when you have a situation where it's obvious that Trump when he was a little bit too clever by half, I know, I'm going to put a black guy against a black guy, but the guy that he pickles around black. That's actually part of that is actually true. Herschel Walker was picked because of the color of his skin. What have I said about identity politics on this radio program? What have I said? It doesn't work if you're a Republican. It doesn't work. You want an example. And by the way, this is how we got into the mess we are in right now. It goes back to Brian Kemp, the governor of Georgia, when he put Kelly loeffler in the U.S. Senate. He specifically wanted a woman. It didn't matter that she wasn't a conservative. He wanted a woman. She turned out to be a terrible candidate, which again is how we got here in the first place. And
A Lot of Blame Following Herschel Walker's Loss
"The midterm election cycle has concluded except for whatever is happening in Arizona. Which is not looking good. But regardless, I think I am safe and providing you my analysis of the Republican Party and where we are right now. And we're going to be getting your calls and I want to take a lot of calls during today's program because I want to hear from you. I want to hear from you about where you think things went wrong and how you think that we can fix this. And I do believe it is fixable. I truly believe that, but it is going to take a lot of work. We're going to have to roll up our sleeves and we're just going to have to keep fighting the good fight here. We also have to play smart. Now, there's a lot of blame to go around over what happened in Georgia last night. I will say this early on it looked good for Herschel Walker. Herschel did well in areas that he needed to do well in. And you got to give credit where credit is due. Thank goodness for Brian Kemp, the governor, the very popular governor of going in and really targeting some specific areas to get out the vote and it's this idea of micro targeting, which is one of the reasons it may explain this to us on one of the interviews this past week or last week, where you go into an area that is traditionally read and you hammer that area to make sure you can squeeze out every vote possible. But it still wasn't enough. It was not enough. And the reality is that Herschel Walker was not the right candidate. And this goes back to day one and I told you folks, early on, I had grave concerns about Herschel Walker because he refused to debate his fellow Republicans in the primary process.
Martha Zoller: The Early Voting Looks Good for Herschel Walker
"You would think that he would have done well in those red areas so that he could campaign in places like metro Atlanta and pick up some of those independent voters. If you look at the map by county, basically from I 20 south, he only ran two points behind Brian Kemp. From I 20 north, not counting the metro counties, but like when you get up into north Georgia in hall county in Dawson county and Cherokee county and union county and oconee county and Walton county, he ran like 6 points behind governor Kemp, all the rest of the counties up there he ran about four points behind. So he had a lot of work to do, but gosh, the early voting looks good, and then tomorrow they're predicting rain. So I don't know what that'll do to the turnout. But we'll just have to see. But I think we'll know fairly early how this is going to come out. Like 10 o'clock. So Martha, so people in those counties, they went and they voted for Brian Kemp, but are you saying they did not vote for rehearsal walker? Right. That's correct. Wow, any indication, I mean, has the campaign been given any indication why that is and what they need to fix that for this runoff? Well, there were roughly 200,000 voters that did not vote for Herschel Walker that voted for Brian Kemp. But the gap between walker and Warnock was only 35,000 votes. And you know, if I'm Rafael Warnock and I out my opponent four to one, and I only got 35,000 of those more, I would be unhappy about that. He knows that he's got an uphill battle both Warnock and walker. Polls are saying 52, 48, but ten years ago, we had three week runoff the last several. They've been 9 week runoffs. I don't think anybody knows what a four week runoff looks like Todd. So what I'm saying is get out the vote. It's in your polling place that you have to vote. It's not where the early voting was. Get out and vote. Don't assume your neighbor is going to do it. Get out and vote and bring your Friends and neighbors with you.
Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker Will Have a Runoff in Georgia
"Again, an interesting perspective we'll talk about, let's just go ahead and talk about Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock right now. Is it important if you're a Georgia listener to this podcast in particular for you to go out and vote a Republican to go out and vote? Yes. I know that it's not for the control of the Senate anymore. I know it's not what we had hoped it to be, but it still matters. 51 senators from the Democratic Party in the United States Senate then can control committees. And then they can make sure that they get out whatever they want to get out of committee. Now, granted, we do have the house now to stop some of this. But that's an important thing, especially when it comes to judges that the Biden administration is going to try and pack through here the next two years. Keeping that 50 50 means that it has to come to the floor. And then it's just, it makes it a lot harder to get those judges out. And it means Democrats are put in more pressure. Especially on judges that are on the fringe of being appointments. So the 51 50 matters, you either going to have a power sharing agreement or you're going to have complete control by the Democrats. So Republicans in Georgia, if you want to say Republicans maintain at least a power sharing agreement in the United States Senate, you need to get out and vote for walker. Walker experienced a 200,000 less votes than governor Kemp and other members of the Republican statewide tickets which, by the way, this idea that Georgia had flipped in Georgia was a purple state in Georgia and it didn't happen. In fact, if it wasn't for the walker race, it was a complete beatdown in Georgia by Republicans led by the governor Brian Kemp and others on the democratic candidates up and down the line. And it's just amazing to me that the very little that is being reported about this. I mean, there were AJC reporters. And rightfully so, wrote books about how Georgia had flipped. Will it flip in one election for very different rains mainly the fact that Republicans just did not show back up to the polls in a runoff last year,
Mollie Hemingway Calls Out the GOP's Unpreparedness With Abortion
"I think one of the other kind of struggles people have is maybe we set our expectations too high. There is a debate on the right of the role that Dobbs played in this election. I do believe that in certain states, especially in the state races interestingly enough, it was actually an anchor, especially in Michigan and in Wisconsin in a year that otherwise should have been a very good year. We lost by 5, 6 or 7 points when we had really good candidates. What are your thoughts, Molly? It's very confusing to decipher it. I mean, you take very strong pro life governors like Ron DeSantis, Bill Lee, Brian Kemp, Greg Abbott, who signed effectively or, you know, who's in a state that essentially has an abortion ban, they all won their reelection, incumbent pro abortion supportive governors also did well. I think there was clear failure on the part of the Republican Party to deal with that issue. And it's criminal because they knew it was coming. They knew they had the leak. They knew it was likely to be overturned. They should have had a plan in place. And I saw that the people who support abortion spent $391 million on targeted messaging compared to 11 million for pro lifers. That's just inexcusable. And you might not win the issue. You know, it was a big change in abortion policy and one that many people had worked very hard for and had prayed for for a very long period of time. You can certainly get it to a draw and instead Republicans kind of did this ostrich head in the sand approach of showing that not only were they weak, but they were scared to talk about it.
There's Something We Can Learn From Democrats...
"There is something I want to say, and I know that people do not want to hear this in our audience because they email and they say Charlie stopped talking about things that went wrong. They just flat out stole it. Okay, but this is interesting though. If you listen to what happened in Colorado, because I made a lot of calls last night, right? I made calls to people on the ground in Pennsylvania and Colorado and Georgia and in most states, except Texas and Florida, and they have all said as they're doing their data analysis. They saw a same and similar collapse of independence across the board across the country. Now, people might say, well, Charlie, it's because they had this rigged system. Well, if that's the case, then how did Ron DeSantis win by 20 points, right? How did Brian Kemp win by 6 or 7 points. Now, ballot harvesting and ballot capturing and machines going down in Arizona, we are the one of the only shows that is going to repeatedly talk about it. But there is growing evidence that there was something done by the Democrats that we can learn from that is constructive and important about how on earth did we do so well with independence in the polling and in certain early returns and in person election day, but there was a faction, a type of independence that totally gravitated their support away from us. And Andrew, there could be some explanations. But the most logical one would probably be something around Dobbs, something around a targeted ad campaign, or is it Andrew that Republicans didn't sprit sprint the last half mile of the marathon? Do you think that we just kind of were candidates just kind of let up that there wasn't a targeted campaign to go after independence? I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud. Andrew, what are your thoughts on that? I mean, listen, I think Dobbs completely. It's a point that I've made on the show this week. I think, you know, living in California, you know, my wife's Friends, we would have these conversations. And it kind of, I kind of didn't key in on it enough. Honestly. But they did a great job on platforms like TikTok, social media, you know, my wife told me hers was full of it before the election of just people saying, hey, they want a criminalized miscarriages. We all know that that's so ridiculous not to be true. I mean, half of pregnancies basically end in miscarriage. That's never going to happen. That's a crazy thing. I think it worked a lot with independence. I think it worked a lot with single women. We saw them go way far to the left this cycle.
There Are So Many Good Stories Out of the Midterms...
"So many good stories out of the midterms. We're not talking about desantis by 20, even Brian Kemp one convincingly in Georgia, Greg Abbott, just obliterated Robert Francis o'rourke. I mean, just ran over and Greg Abbott actually won independence in Texas, which is so interesting. Lombardo won in Nevada. But it's just, you know, in Arizona in particular. I mean, I'm shocked and I'm just looking at the numbers as they are. And I'd love to have somebody walk me through them. I'd love to have somebody tell me how on earth this is conceivable how it's possible how Carrie Lake could win game day in person election day voting independence two to one and then lose them if somebody dropped off ballots. It's just, and we're going to have the final numbers tonight. So just so everyone knows, there's anywhere between 90 to a 100,000 Maricopa ballots remaining. I think they're actually might be more than that. In fact, I just got a text message here for anyone listening from Arizona, okay? Anyone from Arizona listen to this. I want to, I want to talk about this. He said, by the way, your advice to cure vote was a good one. My wife and I voted at 6 a.m. on election day. My vote was tabulated, but my wife and I, among them, was among the majority of people around whose ballot couldn't tabulate. We checked our status and currently neither of us are currently listed as having voted since the primary. So we're going to have Tyler Boyer on to kind of walk through what to do here, but there is a chance that again, it's a chance. I'm not saying that it's a good chance, but knowing Maricopa's incompetency, there's a chance that there's tens of thousands of ballots in adjudication in different buckets that haven't been tabulated. And that would end up kind of closing this turnout gap that currently is a little bit mysterious right now. So

Kellyanne Conway: We Need More Unity in the Republican Party
"I like what Kellyanne Conway said to Jesse waters last night on Fox News. I'm glad both men. Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis are in the Republican Party and have records of accomplishment that people can point to and want to emulate in their own states and people who want to run for office because they're inspired by candidates by leaders like them who don't back down who get things done who work with a volume and a velocity. I would love to see the two of them up on the stage in Georgia with I don't know a throw Brian Kemp and Mike Pence in there too. Jesse, I think we need more unity unity and less devices than the Republican Party. Because guess what? We've got the best policies and messages. We don't have unity right now. The Democrats have no good policies and no aspirational hopeful forward looking messages, but they showed a lot of unity last week, ginning up their base and it paid off in some of these elections. She's so right. Gosh, darn it. She's so good. She is as smart as it gets. And we need more unity right now. We got to figure out a way, especially now on behalf of Herschel Walker, looks like it could very well all boil down to Georgia again, although I like Adam laxalt in Nevada, I like Blake masters chance. Chances in Arizona, who knows, we could get all of them.
Will Trump Make Another Run in 2024?
"But ladies and gentlemen, I want to talk about president Donald Trump. He claims that he's going to come out. I would say he claims that sound like a negative start to the conversation. It's not to be claims. I believe that he's going to make an announcement he has reported that he would make a huge announcement at Mar-a-Lago. I think on the 16th of something like that, and he's going to have a big announcement. And I think he's going to announce that he's running for president, the president of the United States of America. However, there's a lot of people, and I want to hear y'all's comments. Especially if you don't believe you would vote for Trump over desantis. There's been a lot of rumbling, right? Newt Gingrich, I got the article here where he had come out and said that he thinks that Trump should reconsider running for president, making that announcement after what has happened in the midterms. Now, I don't fully agree, but in part, I think about it. Because I think that the turnout and the Toonami wasn't it wasn't apparent. And I think there's a few candidates. I'm not going to say their names. There's a few candidates that I don't think we're strong candidates that Donald Trump endorsed over other candidates that I believe were stronger. We can not forget that Donald Trump endorsed a guy other than Brian Kemp and Brian Kemp destroyed snagging. I mean, Stacey Abrams. He destroyed her. I mean, I mean, God, dang. He almost did is good as Ron DeSantis did in Florida. And so you see that that's a misstep that I don't know what he was thinking. The people of Georgia don't agree with what he was thinking. They obviously went for Kemp.
Fundamentals Matter When It Comes to Elections
"Where I'm going to go back to probably the biggest issue that we've talked about on this podcast. Many times, and that is the fundamentals matter. Fundamentals matter when it comes to rice Canada's matter and how Canada's run matters. Walker is an example here Warnock is an example here. Both of them are flawed Candice in the sense that the public in polling didn't trust them. They're 5 unfavor numbers were upside down. And it does appear, though, that walker had a little bit more of a tug on that issue both going down because you could see the breakdown that Kemp out performed walker significantly almost four points or more in this election cycle with upwards of almost a 100,000, 200,000 most depending on where we're at right now. What does that mean? It means that people did not want to vote for Brian Kemp, maybe because of how he handled the past four years as governor, the elections, the pandemic, everything else. And for whatever reason, the refine Republicans could not vote for or did not vote for Herschel Walker. I saw a lot of signs yesterday that says that people were going to be voting for Brian camper and others on the republic ticket, but they simply left the saying it rice off. So again, we'll see what happens right now. Right now currently as we speak here early on a Wednesday morning, the Republican and Democrat in Georgia looked to be headed to a runoff, although there is room right now because Warnock is actually ahead by about 30,000 votes. There is some room that if the numbers broke very, very well for Warnock, he could win without a runoff. That would be, I think, amazing story devastating for Senate hopefuls in Georgia. But it is still there. That means
Democrats Vote Early, Republicans Vote Day Of
"Elections now have transformed into Democrats voting early and Republicans voting on election day. That has become not only more of a train we saw even in 2020. 2018, early on, this would have not been true. Early on what election, early voting would have had typically Republicans had some early votes, so did the Democrats, but it was not as pronounced as we're seeing now. I'll give you an example of Arizona. We just saw that most of all the early votes that came in were decided to lay Democrat. Georgia, again, this was one and we'll talk about more in depth in just a minute, but Georgia, the early voting was, I mean, more than just decidedly demographic. It was overwhelmingly Democrat. But yet when the day of voting came in early day of these went overwhelming Republican and you had Brian Kemp who won easily over Stacey Abrams and down the ticket where they were in the first 45 minutes or an hour of reporting when these early vowels were being counted. Kim, everybody on the ticket was down. All that flip that on day of voting. So what is this really interesting now from a perspective of a Republican and a Democrat either the Democrats now depend on early voting, they're using the mail the early vote about my own or they're using early voting to get their votes out. Republicans are now depending on day of voting, which is going to be interesting over time because it's always been one of those things if you have issues on day of if you had last minute things come up, depending on the day of voting is typically has a little more fraud to it, especially if you're in a state like Georgia and others who have a very generous early voting time frame going backwards or three weeks where you can actually in person early vote during the week and on weekends. So
Mitch McConnell's Unforgivable Betrayal
"To comment on the Republican establishment as well because I've been pretty upset the last couple of weeks with what I've been seeing, which is a betrayal of amazing candidates across the country that are left to fend for themselves. It's a very serious problem. And we should never forget it. We're not going to know for probably a week, so brace yourself for impact. Georgia, Arizona and Pennsylvania are already telling us that it's going to take a week for us to get election results. So just get ready for that. Remember, you get what you put up with and Brian Kemp and raffensperger and do see an Arizona. We're not bold enough to get the election reform changes necessary. Now I hope there's no fraud. I hope that we overwhelm the fraud. I think we will. I think that Carrie Lake is going to win the governor's race in Arizona. I really do. And so we're fighting right now like crazy to make sure Blake masters wins against the fraud of Mark Kelly, but let me tell you the problem. Blake masters has raised about 15 to $20 million. Mark Kelly has raised $75 million and Mitch McConnell is instead spending money in Alaska to go defeat a great Republican. $9 million has been spent on defeating a Trump endorsed candidate Kelly shabaka, meanwhile, Blake masters is being outspent in Arizona. Meanwhile, he pulled out all the money in New Hampshire with a great candidate Don baldick, and he goes up in the polls and he says, maybe I'll do a million. You see McConnell is not counting votes. He's counting seats. And this is a huge problem. I'm telling you right now, he has betrayed the grassroots of this country and has allowed our candidates and left them on an island. $9 million in Alaska, while our candidates can't raise money while we are being outspent at every single corner in turn. So you ask the question have we done enough with election integrity? No.
Stacey Abrams Blames Misinformation for Poor Polling Results
"Now, in Georgia, Stacey Abrams is trailing Brian Kemp pretty considerably. Stacey Abrams knows why. This is pretty fascinating. Stacey Abrams sat down with Ali velshi on MSNBC over the weekend. And Ali velshi said, you're way behind in the polls to Brian Kemp, looks like you're going to lose. Why is that? Here's her answer. I do not believe it's because of a deep well of enthusiasm for my opponent. We know that black voters are often discounted and unfortunately this year black men have been a very targeted population for misinformation, not misinformation about what they want, but about why they want what they deserve. And my campaign has been the only one that has very intentionally thoughtfully and consistently reached out. That has been misconstrued as concern when it indeed is just respect. I got to hear that again, Yuri, I got to please play that one more time because that's classic. That's about that you talk about rich. Here's the question, hey, Stacey Abrams, why are you behind by almost double digits in some polls to Brian Kemp listen one more time once more for emphasis to Stacey Abrams response? I do not believe it's because of a deep well of enthusiasm for my opponent. We know that black voters are often discounted and unfortunately this year black men have been a very targeted population for misinformation, not misinformation about what they want, but about why they want what they deserve. And my campaign has been the only one that has very intentionally thoughtfully and consistently reached out. That has been misconstrued as concern when indeed it's just respect
Doug's Final Look at the Race for the Senate
"Week out. I mean, this is the final stretch of the elections. We're going to talk about that today over the next few days. The next few podcasts won't break down. The Senate race going right down the gup. Excuse me, the governor's race suspense. I'm just so excited I can't even talk now. The governor's race is we're going to talk about also possibly some of what it means for the house to take back over. And the realities there. And I want to talk about that a little bit as we get in. But also I want to talk about another topic as a debate and we're going to deal with that just a little bit in the next few podcasts. So I just want you to get prepared, have that be ready for election day. And be ready for, you know, just what is coming up. So there's a lot of great stuff on the table. A lot of things that are moving. We're starting to see what I believe is in these final week. The push to get voters out, turnout. I mean, turn out has been tremendously heavy. And Georgia and Pennsylvania and other places. I mean, we're just seeing a lot. You know, he goes to this, you know, the old reality of this, especially this discussion of Georgia and electoral suppression. It Stacey Abrams championed and made millions off of, which are lawsuit was, again, thrown out just a couple of weeks ago. She's losing badly to Brian Kemp. She's even started cutting back her spending here just weeks out a week out of the election. She's cutting back to how much ad buy she's having. I guess she's wanting to save her money for something
A Closer Look at the Governor's Race in Georgia
"Dive in to these governors races across the state. I'm going to start at home for me personally. And that's down here in Georgia. This race is one of the ones that was talked about race for the last really four years when you look at folks in politics who talk about governors races. And the race that was sort of looked at. Governor Kemp won by smaller margin back in 2018. He came in had a little over a year in office and then the pandemic here, he's had to deal with the pandemic. Again, and all of the while in the back rearview mirror with Stacey Abrams who won did not claim to have lost the race, basically. She wouldn't give up. She wouldn't concede. She thought there was still problems. Again, one of the, you know, it's amazing to me how the press does not cast by what she or Pelosi or rask or anything they did in the 20 18 or 2020, 2016 election said about votes that didn't count and even Hillary Clinton don't call it anything, but solid citizens while they call any Republican who cast doubts on rules that were changed to allow voting in different formats that are not prescribed by law in those states to, frankly, those folks are created and treated differently. But camp built up work toward this. He knew that I think a lot of folks knew that Abrams wanted to be governor and state of Georgia. She was going to do everything she possibly could to be governor in the state of Georgia. So she went out, she started organizations. She raised money. She made a lot of money for herself. And this was supposed to be the premier race. This was going to be the governor's race that everybody was looking at. You had monies upon money's flowing into this. This is very reminiscent of the walker race on the Senate side here in Georgia. But unlike these races as some of the other sites such as Arizona, Wisconsin, even Nevada, where you're seeing a very much of a correlation between the governor's races and the Senate races, these are races that this race in Georgia are not correlated. The
"kemp" Discussed on The Larry Elder Show
"Down to, oh, good lord. Here I am. There's a column that I pulled up and I want to talk to you a little bit about what happened with Kim's race. And again, I don't think the issue was Donald Trump as much as it was Brian Kim. I want to, I want you guys to go back and recall this before Donald Trump started calling out governor Kemp governor Kemp was doing a really good job as governor of Georgia. A lot of people get pissed off at him because of the elections. I mean, he really seed it too much power. He and raffensperger both ceded too much power to Stacey Abrams, Stacey Abrams, playing the woke game, guilt at the white guys into doing what she wanted to do. And really, I think damage chances for senators or Purdue and Kelly loeffler winning the runoffs in an after runoffs. But yeah, I believe they were the runoffs in 2020 the special election runoffs in 2020. I think the vote occurred in January of 2021, but neither one of them were good candidates. They probably would have been great senators, neither one of them were good candidates. So this from the hill, Kim defeats for due in Georgia, a major blow to Trump. Now, listen, this is a left wing rag. I mean, there's some conservatives there, but for the most part. So this isn't me talking, but I do think they get some things right. Georgia governor Brian Kemp was projected to win his renomination for a second term on Tuesday overcoming a primary challenge from former senator David perdue. And by extension, former president Trump. Again, I don't think it had anything to do with Trump. I want you guys to go back to the lockdowns. There were a lot of things that Brian Kemp did wrong, but there were a lot of things that Brian Kemp did right. And basically, one of the things that Eric Erickson said, he lives in Georgia and he made a great point. And that is that people know the governor. They know what he did. They lived there. They lived the life. And you guys may recall he was the first governor to stand up against the lockdowns. Even when Trump imposed a lockdown, he said, he said, he didn't agree with it. Basically, he kept Georgia open. You guys may recall that Trump got mad at him. Because Trump didn't want to look bad and listen, I love Trump, but let's be real, Georgia governor Brian Kemp make the rate of the right call. And that call that Trump made, even though it was a hard issue for Trump, he has a soft heart there. The lefties Fauci and what's that Burke's or birch or whatever that doctor's name was, tugged on his heart, set this thing, this Wuhan virus is coming to a town near you. We need to stop this. Trump wanted to do the right thing. He shut down the economy. But that turned out to be the Achilles heel of his of his presidency. Otherwise, he would have walked right into The White House and the left knew it, but they were able to get all of these systems in place to rig the election because Trump himself, unfortunately, shut the government down and Democrats took advantage of that, and they kept it, they kept the country locked down. But people can recall when governor Kemp stood up. You know, and I'm sorry, that plays a huge part so they can look at Kemp and they could say all of the troubles that we had as a result of these lockdowns. Kim tried to save us and Donald Trump made the mistake, even though Donald Trump came out shortly thereafter and said, listen, guys, we got to open back up. Kemp never closed down. So you just got to keep that.

"Here's what you need to know in politics for Friday, December 3rd. It's official, the center of the political universe next year is going to be the state of Georgia and a first among equals of all the races on the ballot will be that blockbuster governor's race. With democratic superstar Stacey Abrams, getting into the Georgia governor's race this week for a possible rematch with incumbent Republican governor Brian Kemp, who Abrams lost to back in 2018, guarantees that this is going to be one of the marquee contests across the country next year. It's got a little bit of everything. Obviously voting rights will be front and center, not only because of the recent law enacted in the state of Georgia that caused so much controversy, but also because of Abram's role as a voting rights advocate. You also have the Trump factor in a very acute way. Any listener of this podcast probably knows Donald Trump is no fan of the Republican incumbent governor Brian Kemp, and he is eager to play in the state's Republican primary. And it's all wrapped up in a battleground state that Joe Biden won just a year ago, the first time a Democrat has done that in some 30 years, and where two Democrats were elected to the United States Senate in January, delivering the majority in the Senate to the Democrats. So circle Georgia on your map, because this is where politics is going to play out in 2022. As for Abrams entrance into the race? Well, she immediately started facing questions about her decision not to officially concede her last race. She never officially conceded her loss to Brian Kemp in 2018. And of course, Republicans are eager to try and draw a comparison to a lot of the outrage over Donald Trump's refusal to concede the election to Joe Biden. It is quite clear these two circumstances are not at all similar. Stacey Abrams did not lead some insurrection and continue to undermine a democracy. But it is true that she never conceded. And this morning on CNN's new day, Brianna keeler asked her about it. I on November 16th, 2018 acknowledged at the top of my speech that Brian Kemp is the governor of Georgia. I talked about the fact that we had a system that he managed that he manipulated that hurt Georgia voters. My responsibility was not to try and make myself governor. I've been very well aware for three years. I am not the governor of Georgia. But I am a citizen of Georgia and the citizen of this country. And my responsibility is to challenge a system that would rob a single voice from being able to be heard if they are eligible. As I said, voting rights is going to be front and center in this race back in that 2018 race you'll recall Brian Kemp was the then Secretary of State responsible for Georgia's elections. Now, as I mentioned, former president Trump has no love for Brian Kemp. He has made that clear on a near daily basis since last November. Because Kemp would never sign on to some notion that Trump actually won in 2020 in Georgia when he clearly did it, and so now the former president is trying to find a Republican to primary Kemp. In fact, Trump has gone so far as to suggest that if Brian Kemp is the Republican nominee, Stacey Abrams may actually end up as governor because Trump supporting Republicans won't come out and vote for camp. So who may take his place? Well, there are rumors that Trump is trying to recruit former senator David perdue, who lost one of those Senate races back in January into the race. Brian Kemp held a press conference in Georgia yesterday and was asked if he is indeed concerned about getting a primary challenge. That's something else I can't control. I would just tell you again, I had been in the fight on elections reform. I've been in the fight to have the number one, or at least one of the top economies in the country. We have the lowest unemployment rate ever in the history of the state. You know, we've done all these other things that I've talked about. And if somebody else is going to have to run, you'd simply have to ask them why. Kemp went on to say that he hopes David perdue will remain a man of his word. Intimating that Purdue has indicated to Kemp in some way that he doesn't intend on challenging him for the Republican nomination. Now, of course, 2018 was a hugely successful year for Democrats across the nation. It was a very beneficial political environment. It was Trump's first midterm. There was a lot of backlash against Republicans because of Trump and Democrats went on to win some 40 seats and control of the House of Representatives. And yet, Stacey Abrams still came up 1.4 percentage points short of Brian Kemp. 2022 is expected to be a much tougher political environment for Democrats. So the question becomes, why do Stacey Abrams think she's going to be able to succeed where she failed last time in what may be an actually tougher, political environment for her and her party? That's something she's going to have to address as the campaign unfolds. And as I noted, Georgia is a real battleground state now. What used to be reliably Republican in recent years, it shifted. A lot of that movement in the Atlanta suburbs to the Democratic Party. And that's what helped Joe Biden actually claim victory in this state in 2020. But it is a real purple state, so the question for Abrams is, are you going to welcome Joe Biden whose approval ratings are not all that great nationally and even a little rougher in Georgia into the state and campaign with you? She answered that on new day as well. I'm looking forward to campaigning with the president with our senators proof that we have the opportunity in Georgia to elect strong Democrats up and down the ticket. In 2020 and 2021, we showed America what George is capable of. As I said, the governor's race is the marquee race in the state of Georgia, but there is also a critical Senate race that may help determine control of the United States Senate next year. A crucial house race and a Secretary of State race about how elections are officiated in the state of Georgia. All of that in one state, like I said, circle it on your map. That's it for today's political briefing, thanks so much for listening and please take a moment and be sure to follow us wherever you get your podcasts..

"That's a huge waste of our energy. The best that we can do is work on our own healing so that when we show up to the table we show up to these different things. We bring a different countenance. We bring a different level of south and In a level of self that people can hear because sometimes when we are so angry. People can't hear what you're saying because they're so focused on your anger. You know what i mean. And so that's why we do the healing work. I mean he only work is also So that People can become aware that there's nothing wrong with them. Is that You know they've had things happen to them or happen to their lineage. Because trauma is passed on from one generation to another and So they may be having a difficult time getting their lives where they want their lives to be but it isn't because as anything wrong is that they're they're still dealing with the psycho emotional Things that their families never healed then there he. They're dealing with their own childhood trauma and everyday trauma of just you know. Living as a person of color in supremacy society and so self healing and self awareness is really important if people are serious about wanting to heal from. Racism vinnie to become race literate. They need to understand what race is where it comes from how was maintained. And all those kinds of we think we know. But there's a lot of information that it doesn't get shared with us and so we don't really know and people don't know what they don't know It's also important to along with becoming race literate to learn techniques that help you self care. Lake learning breeding patterns that can add to the coherence of your mind and your heart Understand that when you talk about race with some people particularly for your person of color would have a conversation about something that just happened. That was racially charged with a white person. Remember that the moment. You mentioned the word race to them if it's not affiliated car race or a horse race in a race you trigger their stress response so is fight flight analysis. They either wanted the end what they just said or did they want to flee like they. Don't wanna be around this anymore or they become paralyzed inside. You know you're talking to them and you can look in their eyes and it's like there's nobody home 'cause the spirit left because they don't want to have this conversation it to just being aware of that like you know there's not a whole heck of that you can do about that But it's important for you to be able to speak to power and do it in a way compassionate because the reality is a big to have been traumatized and their trauma Goes way back before colonization. Which is what allowed them to do. The stuff they they did through colonization and so and also realizing that even and especially perpetrators are just as traumatized as the people that they traumatized. And we never really talked about that and the thing that perpetrators need to know is that you didn't just traumatized yourself by what you just did to that of the person the traumatized entire lineage.

"You look for. And he's like. I mean i've always always said on heater adjusted. I'll speed because that is the max of the jong board. I mean you're geared up for ninety eight and he throws eighty eight. You're going to be ready for the but if you're up eighty eight and he does ninety eight. You're not gonna touch it so I feel like just having that approach keeping it simple hitting the positive top part of the baseball and you know that's pretty much it. I mean i i feel like just being able to keep things simple as been the be the best thing for me. Does it make more sense to do that now. Even just because of the way that philosophy plays right now individually just because you see like everybody throws mid gosh. Yeah i think the. I think the biggest jump Yeah just being able to handle the lost city. But i mean i think everybody can kind of go and look at the data of what hitters had to go through with the sticky stuff and you know you see people spin rates falling jozef to understand that when you're hitting these heaters are spin rate of almost three thousand. It's like it almost looked like if the ball was coming out at his shoelaces ending up at your chest like the perceived velocity and the perceived Expansion is just ridiculous so now to see what. The numbers have been In dealing with all that stuff now. I feel like now you're seeing the home runs. Now you're seeing like okay. We're these aren't as bad as we thought they were. You know it's it's I feel like it's finally getting back to that true That your baseball. You know people are getting checked and yeah. I think it's good for the game. I mean we that seemed like such. It was such a big story for like the kind of few weeks leading up to it and there was just kind of swarming and it went away a little bit. Yeah but has there been a lasting effect from the hitter's perspective. Yeah i mean if you. I mean go look at everyone's numbers this year like when these pitchers had these sticky stuff. It was making like pitchers that you know maybe have like a five or six year ago started. Uc's he's got two or three you know and so You know. I'm sure you guys saw the articles about spinner rate and all that stuff and the decrease into the klein. And it's like you know that's why there's a hi pow bora because you're when you're hitting in. The guy has all sticky stuff. And he's going to heater and it looks like it's one place in you look down in. It's not it's you know pretty much you you have to swing over fastballs and it was like what like but that's in you know to survive that era of just the sticky stuff like you got to think about. The hitter. couldn't survive that time to make that adjustment of all right. a guy has a spin. Peter of twenty eight hundred. My aiming point has to be here on a heater rather than here. And you know auspey pitches where even better right like you guys are seeing this stuff so yeah i just feel like i feel like i'm happy that it's it's getting policed. I actually the the way that you described. I remember. I specifically remember match. One of the early season zunes because we were still on zoom with the players describing it that way where he had to learn to swing above where he thought he was going to be which that was really eye opening thing. But i don't know how long that have been going on like. How long had you had to hit like. Well i remember back in twenty eighteen learning about it and learning about spin ray heaters. Because you know you get that one fastball. You don't wanna miss it right. So that's why you see so many guys clip foul balls that behind him or back that way and it's because you know as both coming in with the revolutions were able to do is just like it was able to pretty much rise up a little more than what you thought it was and obviously we're trying to hit a round ball round bat. You know it's hard to do so Yeah i think it was back in. Two thousand eighteen is. When i kind of i heard about it. And then that's when i started paying attention to hitters or pitchers rpm so all all our scouting reports whenever. We're going up to the plate. There's a spot that says fastball. what is spin. Aarp usually like guys two thousand like okay. That's a that's a pretty standard teeter. But it's like twenty three twenty four. Okay that means you have to kind of make sure you really concentrate on staying on top of the ball even more because you stay on top of the ball even more. That's what kind of gives us. We have the direction that you want. The other thing that stood out At least in the first half was Seemed like you were being more selective. Generally what led into that. And is that something. You're going to carry for just intensively being more selective. Yeah when i was coming out we have the city sitting coach name Darryl robinson and one of his things was we all want like he always treats be selectively aggressive. And you know it's funny how you write things down in a journal and it comes back to you and those are the things that you kind of build your approach around. Speaking selectively aggressive is something that always rings in the back of my head. Is you know. Obviously you want to get a good fish but you wanna be aggressive. Because that's the that's the swing that's gonna you get to do damage on and Yeah i think it's just an approach. I've just been super simple this year. I don't have a. i don't have a big sling. It's very compact. it's very short. It's very boring as you know what. I mean it's You know i get up there. And that's my stance on my low too simple but you know i feel like i've been able to stay around the big leagues for as long as i've had is because Just know who i am. And i i'd like i said we talked about trying to finish at exit velocity again. I hit home runs but also struck out at like twenty percent clip. And i was like all right. That's not what i am so I at the end of the day. I can say i try. So was this an important year for you. Just kinda like get more comfortable with yours. A hitter mirrors player. Yeah and obviously super blessed as gave me some volume to work with and to be able to mix in with some of these guys. And i feel like this year having the year i am. I mean you have to manifest all this stuff and put out in the universe and say every year is a big year. Every year is going to be a good year. I feel like that's kind of what happened. And you know. I wouldn't mind being a for a couple more years. Nothing li- last thing to ask you about being that we're in kansas city. Right now The the negro leagues museum is here and understand.

Or what was your route into this word against my definitely my brother Our just a little brother that big brother around and he played basketball. I played basketball baseball. We played three. We've played three sports for the longest time. I played three sports up until my sophomore year high school and then Baseball was kind of like okay. I'm not gonna go to the nba. i'm not gonna. I'm not gonna be a running back in the nfl like So i think that. I kind of gravitate toward baseball more because i feel like i saw more than once. I signed vandy. I was like okay. I think that there's a pretty good chance that you know i could make some of this so now here we are and your brother still an influence. I mean you referenced. Him earlier in the season with one of the home runs against the yankees. Yeah he He wants to get into coaching one day. He's got three kids so he's trying to figure out when he could do that but Right now coaching his son's little league team so he's enjoy it but he's he's he knows a lot about the game he's very knowledgeable and be able to bounce off hand. It was pretty cool skill for Just to shift gears a little bit. I mean you guys are obviously in the in the midst of a playoff push here coming in the last few weeks of the season. How the the last several weeks. I guess maybe month so probably hasn't gone as you guys would have hoped coming to the end here. But how would you sort of describe where you guys all right now. Yeah i think. I mean no doubt about it we definitely could be in a better spot but i think you know we've kind of put ourselves in a place of we need to win and nothing else matters and i'm gonna games are left. Eighteen eighteen games left. Eighteen games. Left gotta go eighteen kind of how it is but now you can't get it can't get ahead of yourself you've got to go to know and I think the good thing about it is is the clubhouse morale is still the same and People you ever certain respect for this game. 'cause you know how hard it is and you know you're plan at the highest level and You know things aren't always going to go your way we're still human and The thing about Today is brand new and we have a fresh nine today so Hopefully we can get some runs and get a win when you look around if you see the same amount of confidences maybe like a month ago two months ago or any of the season from. Yeah honestly think it's you know if it's if it's not high right now and it's it's pretty much the same thing you know. There's a lot of guys who've been in that playoff atmosphere and what it takes to get there. So there's no surprise in that regard. I just think that You know baseball's ugly it's ugly and it's beautiful at the same time when you look at your season We i think we talked back in seattle and something like may or june and modern colorado. And you had a really good kind of stretch to bring your on base percentage up. It said something like coming into the season. You really made a focus on looking for a certain pitch kind of selling out for that. It's just not trying to be defensive when you're at the point. Is that something that you continue. Throughout the year. because looking at the on-base percentage that you compiled over the course of the year. It's a sad from a little bit of a lull midseason. It stayed pretty strong. I think just talking with talking with approach and talking with jed lowrie. I mean we pretty much have the same approach and you know i. I never liked it. Really get off the fast ball You know if a guy wants to sit up there in three or four off. Speed pitches and get himself in a disadvantage count and then have to throw a fastball. That's kinda went. I'd take advantage and Yeah i think. I think the biggest thing this year is just being able to get your pitch and don't miss it And just being confident in yourself in you know this is the most volume i've got in my big league career and i feel like i've felt like this is what the production that i could give. If i was given a certain amount of time you know to get every day at that certain get at bats you know more than just you know to starts a week and you know even in the wrong and now i just think that you know were whatever it is. I know how good i am. I just know that given the volume. I know that.

You know just kind of shows you like what you do to give back to community and Encompasses so many things and yeah just very blessed very humble just to be on the same sentences. Roberto clemente means a lot. Covers a lot of ground both with the onfield performance and then also just the Efforts put an off the field. we've britain in the past. You've you've talked about the work that you do with the plus one effect which she started Would you kind of just kind of tell us where that is right now. What you guys are doing with Through the plus. What effect at this point. Yeah so it's just about having a conversation about race With someone who wants to learn and better themselves about the about the topic and Like i said the plus one is exceeded all expectations. That i've even you know once it started to being. I knew it was a big deal. Once i Did my interview with the new york. Times and then Manage just it's still ongoing. You know people are still asking questions in my dm's about race to this day and know. I think it's it's good to keep the conversation going. I didn't i didn't want it to be a hot topic because it's it's more than that so it's still it's still continuous. It still in a work of progress of you. Know everybody trying to better themselves to take a step out of their shoes and see if they could live in someone else's shoes and see how they feel and The plus one affects all about having conversations with someone else in in a positive way to where you could spread awareness and spread positively through You know other people and how they feel about ray so it's been good. What would you say What you're working so with that. Obviously you're you're sort of balancing this right now between doing that and and the responsibilities that That go into you know playing baseball season But is there an end goal for for that That project yeah i i. I hope that there's not a single because then that means the work done Yeah i think it's just going to be one of those things that is just continuous I don't see england. I see it as a. I think it's going to be one of those things. That were in the customized cleats. That i have it. It's going to be always on my cleats. Just you know you never know when someone might look it up. I get asked all the time. When i'm on deck with the plus one effect is and if It's it's usually from older crowd But i heard a couple of people. Younger crowd kind of knows that the plus one effect is and i think the coolest thing is to walk around at different stadiums and We're in detroit. There's three or four fans that had the plus one affects shirt on. I was like well. It's it's huge so The reaches the reach is huge in so You know like. I said it's exceeded all expectations. I started going to say you see the shirts quite a bit. I mean not only in oakland but yeah like him on the road For for you what has been. Maybe the I guess to this point the most rewarding part of of doing that whole thing. Well say there was a time when we were playing the giants This season and after one of the day games that we won A fan came up to me. And said i would just love to shake your hand for everything that you've done You know i. I can't believe i'm actually talking to you right now. he's like but i just want say. Thank you for everything that you done on our off. The field With all the conversations going on. And i was kinda thinking i was like man. I wonder if. I wonder how long the line would be if every person could say that to me or to my wife or did you know this initiative line i think would be pretty pretty frigging long so Yeah and the initiative. Part of that is. The shirts is fundraising. Where does the funds go to. What are you guys doing with. With the funds that are raised through the yeah so We've actually kinda switched it up. It was going to get in. Army in nashville. And then we switch. We're going to switch it to There is a positive coaching thing. That we're actually working out with san francisco right now to figure out If we're going to start having the money go to like More of a community. That's toward oakland so it's actually been donated. The proceeds have been going to a bunch of different organizations so We gotta we gotta iron a little more things out but I wish it was black and white as as it could be. But it's it's not like that you gotta figure out Who you're gonna get it through the five. Oh one c. And that goes into it. But i wouldn't change it for anything when you think through sort of some of the conversations and interactions that you've had people just through this At obviously a big reason for doing this was to kind of like you said generate a dialogue but also kind of opened other people's as have there been any talks that have sort of did i opening for you to or like expanded sort of your Horizons and stuff. Yeah i think. I think the coolest thing about the initiative is how much i've learned just like you know you can never stop learning. You know you don't know everything in the world. And i think the the one conversation that stuff with me was You know a woman was talking about. How could she help when she was a white suburban mom. Area that you know. She wasn't around many people of color and You know. I just told her. It starts with their inner circle and go from there and that that conversation kind of stuck with me. Because i learned that you know even though you're not around it you know you still can people who are making fun of it or people who are talking bad about it. You know you're gonna be the one that steps up and tell people that you might lose friends talking about it but you know what i mean like you know at least you're bettering You know yourself. And you said you're honest truth and At the end of the day. I lost couple of friends through it to and you know that's part of growing up you're not gonna you're not gonna agree with everybody so but it's been going. Well you're also involved in the players alliance which has done a lot of work To grow baseball in underserved communities and communities. Where baseball maybe isn't as popular isn't.

Who's but Because he considers friends but there was a sense of family coming together that we hadn't had for a long time and know we could go for walks together. We were sort of thrown together. And i think we learn more about each other in that period home. Schooling is tough. Obviously what. I gave me as an artist sense of urgency.

Sit down talk for a long time and then someone suddenly starts writing the song. I'm not sure i believe that. Already had code sequence before and they just jamming into whatever they spoke about did hear about that phenomenon. Actually among professional songwriters this is sort of Slightly deceptive model whereby they would come up with something in defense and then they would go right with the artist and then kind of introduce that idea as if it was happening in the moments even though they can pre-prepared that you know and then it's like you know what i think i'm going to call my friends to come over. And then they can get cuts on the wreck. Suddenly there are six people in the room and they're all making the publisher. Because i think there's a element of people getting the publishing is where it's at wanting to be part of it. I mean this whole concept of produces being. Some writers is a new invention. It's not necessarily fair. You know that That the producer has to be also the songwriter at the same time. You know there's going to be an agreement. listen. I know nothing about this. Because i don't sit in the same room as as you you've learned. I don't say say room as other people to write songs. We'll i guess we'll wrap up now. Bruce been loosely. Speaking to you.

"kemp" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make
"Was a good tool to do that. Come back to two thousand and nine is that you can only live that kind of fancy for awhile and then eventually reality starts to bite and you you know you you start to think you drift away again but but it wasn't incredible comeback that i one rally and i've talked a lot about it when bands gets back together not to have been the stahl jake but to to have a still sound fresh. These these songs were important back in the day. The the is finding something new in each performance. And it's still it's still vital and still it's still making an impact when you hear it in a live setting I think it's important to make new music in an even if even if is that moment when people go to want to get a beer is important to make new music to go through the process of some creativity together. Not just 'cause also in. Tony had been doing these songs in his own right with his own band for quite a long time and so he came back with a whole different kind of style and doing that and we were trying to do is to remind ourselves of what our style was what we had done. But i think unless you're willing to go to durango which is make brand new albums and push yourself creatively. Then don't see the point in just getting back together for reunion shows. You know i i. I'm and i don't think the moment spam our a willing enough for that. Because tony wants to do his stuff. And i know in the in the mindset of wanting to staff and you know and the other guys in the bombing martin is hugely busy over here doing every he's on every tv show. I'm doing stuff. So i think we're happy where we are right now but you never know any interviews you read with you. It sounds it does sound final. We're not going to spend our belly. I think i've got to say that to myself. Because i can't be creative going forward unless i'd say goodbye to that you know and otherwise i'm thinking oh this song i will be good for tony. I'll put that away. I don't wanna be of that. Mindset right now you know so. I think there's a lot of difficulty you know of personal stuff that you know is an unusual. You know the that you think when you when you're on the road you're not just on stage for those minutes the the fancy you. You are traveling together living together doing interviews together. You know you are coming breakfast together and you've got to be willing to go through all of that with those people that maybe you know you've got just a too much too much issues with all know even issues now but had issues you know getting a marriage back together because because your neighbors loved it when you were together and he knew each other so well so you think it's going to be comfortable in. Yeah i don't want undermine anyone by the you know an hope people don't take it that way. I'm i'm halfway through writing another album. I want to carry on doing that. I wanna make another record. And i'm breaking new act sixty one right so i'm hoping i can come out and play some shows at some stage. I think we've taken enough of your time share.

"How are you and welcome to the differences. It make podcast thank you. Yes i know you're great. I know you are greater than great. First of all. We're going to talk to gary camp of the band and ballet the principal songwriter. Guitarist arranger. He does it all for the band and still does was his favorite bands in the eighties. Yes i have always been a fan and this gave me great opportunity in preparing for this to do kind of a deep dive into his career. I'm always a fan of standout ballet. But i loved learning about what he's doing now. He has a podcast with the partner. Guy pratt also a musician. The rock and tourists. It was fun to learn about all the new things. He's doing mike. He has a new solo album called in solo. So it's been a lot of fun to do a deep dive into him. And i was absolutely thrilled to know we were gonna talk to always fun to talk to someone who actually played it live aged. We're gonna get into it before we do want to remind everyone that holly posts youtube video snippets all the time.

And then subscribe to our youtube channel. We are posting everyday. You'll see out takes from all our interviews and young in a post a lot with gary camp. Because i want to perfect. So let's get into our talk right now. There are fewer things that make me happier than seeing our guest named pop up right. Looks like a professional studio there. Oh hi holly. Hi dave danny nice to meet you got seventies record behind me. Just seen that. Yeah that's right. Because i was just listening to your podcast. Your own podcast. Your podcast the rock on tours. Yeah you're talking with. I heard that the last one with paul stanley and you had mentioned the humble-pie album. Yeah that's still have moved it. Yeah thanks for having me home. We're happy to have you. This is a tonal for it. We have a lot to cover. We definitely want to talk about new music and solo but talking about the rock and tourists. I just have to know. How did you come up with the name i love. I like the podcast. Obviously and your guest. Yeah well rack onto is someone who can chat beautifully. And i think guy pratt and i have got to a little bit of a reputation for being you know raconteurs. I think so. I think someone said well. Then it's gotta be rock hunters you know. We think we're the funniest guys on the tour bus. Because he's in the band with me with nick mason and you know in the old days people would say you know you just get a room. Now they just say get a podcast we did and fortunately we don't quite telephone book so we we got a few. You know could musicians that we can get on and then as the reputation bills which is what you know you you start to get people coming to you and i'm a big you know i'm just a fan. Yeah we were getting there. I mean that was kinda cool as i was listening to the paul stanley episode with him. You guys just riffing on your soul favorites and it's kinda cool. Hearing rockstars talk about their favorites but they grew up with without sounding. Like i'm name dropping. But i'm name dropping jumbo jovi said you know i talked to you guys definitely because you've done the same. You had the same experiences. I know exactly the same experiences. Jon bon jovi but pretty mysterious many musicians back stage chatting but i'm equally as excited to be talking to to non musicians. I know maybe the grace musicians ever. I don't know that but but we we have a great appreciation for music. Drove us to do this. And particularly i love eighties music. So that's what we have and your podcast is actually closer to the style of our people. A lotta people when we first doing expected. More more produced a more interviewee type of podcast. But we just chat this the best type business. That's what people want to get in on. I think that's the skill to podcasts. Because that they should be like listening and into other people's conversations where you get that thing where you bought a coffee and you sit the table and then all my god look sitting next to me. What are they talking about. Ooh i call. I'll think get another coffee. And i'll just keep listening escalate. It should be right. Yeah we wanted to chime in as well because like bring paul stanley again. Because it's still air my mind. His new album is soul music. It reminded me of your new song. You actually you have an album coming out in solo. When i heard ahead of the game like oh. This is like pulse. This could be on. Paul stanley's record or vice versa. I it's it's just that love soul music right yeah. This is quite a bit of a soul element on that track. It's not like the rest of the necessarily but it's probably more like what i used to do. It's that has a blue eyed soul feel to it very uplifting i say blue eyed soul because it sounds i guess. Where's where's my inspiration for somewhere that it's people like todd rundgren some of those yacht rock acts like the babies. Which i they love steely dan. Or some things robert palmer. So i think there's elements of that in that but you know. The album is has d. textures. Which i'm sure if you've you've had listen you you'll you'll hear. Oh that sound record. Sounds quite hits..
