So it's so weird that we're doing a bonus upset. Yes. October. So there will be an episode coming on Halloween just for you guys to experience maybe get you in the mood since this year Halloween looks a little different. Maybe, you can listen to it. You know. At night off. A totally. Let's just. Let's just Go ahead and start with a short one. Yes. Police. Now this is from anonymous and he or she did ask dirty because. Most. Like condensed story, I have so many questions. Because it's terrify own my God. So you know I wanted to just go in and like make my own details but I didn't want because this is a true story I'm like I don't WanNa mess. Also. Mike I. need to know more Dane I. Need to know more so I wish we found it earlier so we can email them. Hey but I literally read this last night. Okay. So this is called kidnapped and found. ooh. High Taryn. Ashley sorry. This is short story but is very scary in my world I would rather say anonymous but here we go again I die every like if I could be anonymous. I guys you should know us we would protect you all percents a thousand percent. Okay. One day I was going on a hike with my two friends. There's a lot of hiking places nearby, but we really liked to go to this one specific one. We're walking uphill and it's all closed in. There's nobody really near us. There is a little PORTA potty on the way in case you have to go to the bathroom and that's what one of my friends did. She went to the washroom and we decided to keep walking and she would just catch up to us because she's a fast runner. BMI, other friend walked up ahead not too far. But far enough that she would still she should still be able to see us. We got to allege that looked over a little town and we waited for her. A little bit goes by. A little bit more and we realize it's been about fifteen minutes and she still hasn't come back from the Washer. We went to go look for her and started walking around just looking to see if maybe she got lost or something. And then we saw this one lady that was walking alone. She looked a little bit suspicious, but we didn't think anything of it because there is some weird people around here. So he just kept walking and cap looking for. Our friend. Time. Kept passing and all of a sudden we get an amber alert on her phones saying that girl has gone missing our age but there wasn't a name. We walked back to the ledge just to stay there. In case she came back. Then the woman we saw before came up behind us. And just started looking out on the ledge. We got a little scared and ten stop and she noticed. Then all of a sudden. She came right behind us. And moved in between our heads and whispered. You're next. We got so scared and just ran as fast as we could as far away as possible. We ended up running back to our car and called the cops the cops came and went looking for the woman. They were able to find her and we watched them bringing her back. When we notice there was a third person with the officer and the lady as they got closer, we realize it was our friend. The cops told us that the girl that went missing the on. They got the amber alert for was our friends. and The lady that had came up behind us had kidnapped her and was hiding her until we left. The lady had texted her mom and told her that her daughter was not coming back. So that's where she likes. The amber alert came back 'cause it's like it happened so fast. Yeah. So that's why. We. So relieved that our friend had been found and that now the creepy lady is now in jail even if this doesn't and having read on the podcast, it would still be cool if you read it love you both happy Halloween. Dared. Never. I you guys have ruined everything for me. I'm never. Hiking. Never getting a basement I'm never hiring a clown ever. I just I just cannot with this Oh my God that's so is so because like the whole time I was like wait who called the amber alert like who told them to I was reading this? I was like there's no way that happened so fast but the lady had texted the mom being like your daughter's not coming home tonight. So I wonder if I mean if she was working alone was the only reason, she couldn't do anything was because that was a group of people versus one single person. So that's what I was thinking I was thinking she. Had her like probably bound and like station somewhere. But then now she has a problem because there's her two friends that are. Waiting and looking for her yeah. So her tactic was to go scare them. So they would leave I. Don't think she realized that they weren't going to leave. They were gonNA stay around because. Friends. Are you can. Wolf. IV murder for. You disappeared and I just took off because. I'm so sorry to hear in this creepy lady said your met tonight just had to leave home my God that's. But that makes sense that makes sense in my head. So the rule them this is why we go to the bathroom hairs like there's a whole people tease you doing it but there's there's a reason that you do and. I mean this is exhibit a as to why we go to the bathroom and exhibit ABCD. You need always stay with your friends. No matter where you are always have stuff to protect you nowhere. Yes. especially out in the middle of nowhere I there is we were talking about this the other there is like a hot minute where I felt like I was. So it was I swear when I was taking Thai kick boxing and Krav Maga I was like all come at me like Joe Kill anyone not kill sorry I would never But I would go on hikes. I had such confidence you know and I would carry pepper spray like walked in loaded but there were still many times. I would be like I'm literally on this giant hill by myself no one. I can't see anyone and like a man would be walking towards me. And so I, just like you can't care about looking dumb. That's something we've learned from like. EPIC assode ever doesn't matter I would really I would literally hold my pepper spray APP. So they could see 'cause like to be like high if you're thinking anything like I'm prepared to like. Fight you know and they'd always kind of look at me weird and just keep walking. But I'm like I read stories like this. Are you hear about I just listened to a park predators episode? That's another crime podcast of this guy that like hunted people that were alone on hikes and I'm like it is not worth it even the like. where I'm from, there's this one hiking trail. That's super popular. It's always just full of people and there was one time I went and I went a little late and the sun was setting and it was getting dark. Crazy like within moments it's empty. Yet like all of a sudden by myself and I'm going down where you know it gets darker like the closer you get to the ground. And now it's just one of those things where it's like. You should not put yourself out of the situation and especially if you have like both headphones in your blaring. You're just asking for someone to sneak up behind you. So I'm just sang everyone needs to be careful. A group have a squad. That's all. Okay. So I'm a big socks fan. Right, you we've bonded on though yeah I'm if I'm home all day socks. And I'm very picky with like they have to feel comfortable They can't be sliding down my shoe like they have to be breathable. If I don't like a sock like I, throw it away like super fakey thousand percents So when we found out, we were partnering with peds and they sent us their line of socks. That's there all day active no show socks I was obsessed like I literally wear them every time we were so excited when I was in high school I remember begging my mom for peds because all my friends socks didn't show but mine did.

This one's a little more on the spookier side. So cured we go. Hello Ladies. Hi. My Name is Ray Lynn and I'm so excited to even send this email even though you both may not even share it in in your episode. I hope that you enjoy the story. So here it goes this story takes place at my mom's home town in Mexico the population of this town which I'm just GonNa Guess here named Mris. is about five hundred people are so? Everyone knows everyone which I was gonna say. Very small. Guys. Growing up my family and I would always visit during Christmas and it just so happened that this year all of my aunts and uncles would be joining as well which meant my cousins would also be going I was so excited the house we say at as our grandparents house which has about ten rooms, and of course, all the girl cousins decide to stay in one room. That's such a girl thing. Is such a thing. Yeah there was one night. Where we were all in bed talking having a good time and just as we were about to fall asleep, we hear what sounds like footsteps above us. Yuck. It almost felt as if a person was walking above us and was waiting for us to be quiet before they started walking. Now. This was very strange because our aunt who takes care of the home always told us you can go on the roof just make sure not to go too far to the right because it won't be able to hold anyone up. And where was our room located? You. Guessed it to the far right's my cousins and I sat there scared wondering who it could be thinking. Maybe it's the boy cousins playing a prank on us. But we quickly remembered what our aunt had said so that couldn't be it. The footsteps went on for about five minutes. Oh, Gosh. At that point we were terrified, but I had the great idea I would go up and check. Like I mentioned earlier, this town is very small which meant that at night. There were no street lights so I was pretty much going in blind I hate that I walked up the stairs to the roof opened the door and looked around but nothing. However something didn't feel right something actually felt very, very wrong. I quickly went back inside closed the door and locked it. I almost felt like someone was chasing me after or even watching me toying around with me I got back into bed and my cousins kept asking me what happened what did I see? My heart was beating so fast that I could hear my heart and my breath all at the same time. Then all of the sudden, we hear a cry in the distance. This I. This cry didn't sound normal at all. It was almost a moaning. It was the type of cry where you can almost feel their pain. We. Sat there quietly knowing exactly who it was but not saying a word because we didn't want to believe it to be true. Who is it? Somehow we ended up falling. Asleep. And the next morning while we're eating breakfast, our aunt walks in and had the sad look on her face. She then turns to my mom and says. One passed away last night. All we could do is look at each other in shock. Legend goes that if you hear Lalla Ronan Cry God it means someone has passed or someone will pass. Growing up I believe she was real I always thought of her as being a story that parents tell little kids to make sure they don't do anything bad. But that night, the fear that I felt was so real and now I definitely believe. Well girls I really hope you enjoyed my story. I have so many more that take place in. Mexico. But I'll save those for next year. Thank you so much for your podcast and for all of the advice you both share I have enjoyed listening so much prayers and take care much love railing. Car. I don't like that. It's insane because like those are story is true. Those are stories that you hear about and you hear in movies and you hear like during go stories while you're camping and stuff like that but you never actually. Take it seriously I. So I didn't know much barrow. Of lawler owner I'm I know I'm saying it's so why I'm so sorry. I feel like if I tried to say I just don't want to offend anyone but My cousin was. Just keep bringing my cousin she was in amazed. That was that theme so. Yeah she was that character and I remember sending pictures of. Like, her dress up and I was like I don't get who you are, and then I looked up like that story and it's terrifying sir. Also. The maze was terrifying I. Wonder if I was there once probably yeah. You probably, which is always at university But. It's crazy because I feel like there's like different legends in different cultures like and most of them are that type that it's like you tell as kids and you're like scared whatever I do we have those here the boogeyman. But just in general like those. But these other ones are so specific. Oh I think I think American. Culture. Doesn't go back far enough to have any real substance to it. So I think that's why we're given the BOOGEYMAN and and that's it. Yeah. But yeah I think I think the more countries I visit and the more people that. I talked to who have you know such rich traditions and cultures. They're they're like scary story monsters have so much depth to it. Terrifying. Absolutely terrified even like Like some of the stories we grew up loving when you hear like the original unlike the actual grim versions of them you're like we. I mean I remember being I remember being little and my grandma I'm actually she was my aunt like a grandma's me. She she gave me a little mermaid. VHS And I love I was obsessed with. It was shoes my favorite princess I wanted to be her I would swim in the ocean like are. So she gave it to me because it made sense in her head, but she gave me the original concept like the grim version story. Form is so sad. I watched it as a kid thinking I was like watching a different version of like a whole new version of area. No, it was terrifying. It's so dark. So dark, he'd like turns into foam. perse it's so sad. Yes. So sad anyway what are we doing to our children? That's the original children's story and anyways, all this to say that we have to be careful. Because I had nightmares about that for a long time. That's terrifying. Yeah. Oh my gosh okay. Deep Breath. Deep Breath desk screen okay. This one is tight told. The boots in my window or something honestly I copy and pasted and I kind of forgot what the title. Dear Carleen I'm so sorry if I must that up. Hello Taryn and Ashley Yes tearing I movement Hell. Welcome I won't take long introducing myself. So I don't ruin the spooky vibes, but my name is carly and I'm a junior in college and a big Fan of your podcast for making me laugh in for making me do a lot of self reflection while listening to your pod love that. Okay ready yes. Cue The music mark now. My scary story is from when I was in seventh grade and I still all caps think about this night frequently honestly don't blame me. To set the scene, my twin sister, and I were home alone on a summer night while my two older brothers were fishing and my parents were at a church board meaning. We love disdain home alone because we could eat pizza watch movies and just have fun together. This particular night we decided to watch aquamarine not an important detail just set the scene. To understand the situation I experienced, it's very important to visualize my living room setup we were in the basement. Always basement when God, which means the window was very small and it was one of those half windows that no one could get through if that makes sense. Totally. Exactly Yup. Parallel to the window was a long couch that was facing the TV in perfect view of the window. I was laying on this couch while my sister was laying on the floor which was out of sight of the window. Are and I was going as usual. We were laughing having a great time like we always do together in the midst of the fun night felt an uneasiness in my stomach that something was wrong. You've trust. Trust that breaking gutter for a reason got red flag trust. We'll more time. Okay when I think back on the situation I, don't know if it was instinctual or of God was telling me to look at the small window facing me but to my horror I saw my worst nightmare. I watched to cowboy boots pacing back and forth right in front of the window. Oh. Oh my God. She brought I'm getting chills just thinking about this. I stared for a few seconds when I saw the person's legs start to Bend No. I quickly looked away and face the TV. My entire body was tensed. Every muscle flexed as I felt, the person's eyes on me. The feeling of someone watching you is never great, but it's even worse knowing someone is watching you. Have Literally My sister at this point was completely oblivious to what was going on while I was holding back tears. She was minding her business watching the movie. I. Quietly said her name and I think it must have been a twin thing because she turned to me automatically knowing something was wrong. I spoke to her trying not to move my mouth and told her to go hide in the bathroom closet. She didn't ask any questions and slowly got up and went to the bathroom. I didn't want to be suspicious. So I waited a few seconds which felt like hours before I got up and walk to the bathroom. When I got to the bathroom I started bawling and explained to her what I saw. This. was before we had cell phones. I need my God dude kids who is such a side note kids get cell phones. So young now I didn't get one until high school, my freshman year of high school. The only reason I got one in eighth grade was because we went on our DC trip and my parents were like if something happened like you got separated, we want you to be able to get the only had one because my high schools far away. Yeah that's it. Yeah. Me and my sister, my sister like went to the same school. So she was like she could come find you. You know exactly. y'All. So I feel I feel you I feel you on the stress. Depress. This is before we had cell phones are lamb line was upstairs. Of course of freaking cars those which meant we would have to be seen again. I volunteered to go get the phone mice sister prayer protection before I left super. I crawled up our stairs to our front door which had a glass in. The whole do I press my body against the door and peeked out the window I couldn't see the man but I did see a large black truck in our driveway on. This scared me even more sprint crawled. The army. Goes to the phone in our Home Office I grabbed the phone hid under our office desk as a frantically called my parents but no answer I began to panic even more and dialed my brothers as well. But again, no answer. I left voicemails to my brother's hoping. They would be back from fishing soon. That's again it's. So it's so crazy to me because. When you're younger, you just think I need to call my parents when in reality like you should call nine one area, but it's like it's so hard to differentiate like what is in my mind or is this like an emergency? So it's it's crazy to me all these stories especially when they're younger, it's always like I called my parents when it's like. Call the coming. But I get it like I totally get it. I would have to it's instinctual. Yeah. Since this was during the summer, it wasn't dark out yet. When I saw the and our window as I sat trying to call my family, it was getting darker which made my anxiety grow. I, kept the phone with me and began the journey back down to my sister. I was crawling back down the stairs I heard tire squeak an rocks flying in our gravel driveway. The man was leaving I went back to my sister and we sat in the bathroom closet for what felt like an eternity before? I. Heard my brothers run down the stairs yelling for us the this is cute. They both had their pocket knives drawn and we're ready to fight. Love. Protective. Voice you left voice. Him In like ready to go. Yeah. We finally were safe and my parents in the entire Church board came over and search all our barnes and outdoor buildings to this day I don't know who the man was or what he wanted I don't know how long he was there or how long he watched us from that night on my sister and I always put pillows up in that window if we're in the living room at night. Yeah. No kidding. Did that until we moved out this past December. So yes, we were twenty one years old and still blocking the window zero I was thirty something. Thirty three and I would still put them up. There's no way every time I'm in my room and it gets even slightly dark like blinds down. I mean just period the second of the Sun Starts Setting. Yeah.

Love Eighteen Good days. So let's get into it. This is a story about creepy occurrences that lead up to a confusingly scary cliffhanger. All right. It all started a few years ago back when my grandmother lived with us. She wasn't crazy in the slightest, but she used to say things that we would dismiss justice her old age. She would say things such as there's somebody watching me in the closet. Me and my mom would dismiss it check the closet to soothe her nerves by showing her that. There's nothing there but she was never convince. This went on for months until there was a change. It went from something to know why are you watching me from inside the closet? And how did you get there? Meanwhile I say down the hall in my room with my brother I would come running asking what do you mean and she would go wide eyed and point to the closet and say you were just in the closet searing at me now. And I'm like, no. I was in my room I. Swear. In concern a freaking me out. She would always dismiss it as her imagination. But this went on for weeks and eventually from old age, my grandmother did pass. Sorry. A few days later, my whole family was out except for me I was home alone and it wasn't the first time. It was just like any other time except this time felt a little different. I felt like someone was watching my every move in this house. It was awkwardly silent at this time I had moved into my grandmother's room. Oh Gosh. Have my own space which makes sense you know her were living. And his brother in the same room. Yeah. But. And all of her stuff was still in there. But for some reason this day when I went back to my room, my hair stood up on the back of my neck and I felt uneasy. Now I am a horror adrenaline junkie, but this was all just too real for me. So I grabbed my keys and literally ran out of the house luckily. Luckily. My cousin lived just across the street where I stayed until my family got home. Once. They got home. My mom calls me and says I thought you said you were out your cousins. Stop. Stop I replied I. Am should I come home now? And she says, what do you mean you just silently walked out of the kitchen to your bedroom and closed the door. I. I. Freak out and say in all caps he writes dots, not me Oh my gosh. I run home and we burst through my door, but there's no one there. Now my mother is a super hyper Christian. So I know she wouldn't be joking with me about things as paranormal things, which is how I knew something was going on. The next day I was in my bedroom. Remember this is my grandma's old room. The next day I was in my bedroom remember this is my grandma's Ram. I had put the events of the previous night behind me and moved on. My mom was in the kitchen making lunch and I'm in my room watching TV when suddenly my mom says, Noah, why are you sitting at the dining room table watching me like that I, don't WANNA raise. Le Turn, it off. Off. Picks. Confused I. Yell Back I'M NOT I'm in my room. She goes on saying you're in the dining room looking at me. I walked down the hallway and pure into the kitchen at her and I wave and say I've been in bedroom. She turns and whatever she saw was gone. She tried to convince me that it was a guardian spirit because it was white and took on the form. Similar to mine but that did very little to convince me. Later, that night I couldn't sleep and me being dumb watch a scary video on youtube until is felt heavy sounds like me actually, why do you have nightmares all the time? I randomly woke up at three am and felt a presence in my room. and. Then all of the videos from the Youtube video rush back to the forefront of my mind and I am tense and alert and I slowly sit up and turn around and they're at the end of my belt. No no no. I. Don't WanNa hear that. Is Me. that a white, Silhouette version of me. He stares me dead in my eyes and says in a voice identical to mine stop I don't WanNa hear. I. Am you know Oh no and you are me? We are one forever. Heathen smiles but it was it wasn't a dark smile. It looked jovial. He moves towards me and passes through me and vaporizes into a white messed. To this day I don't know if he wanted to help or hurt me or what those words meant, but I haven't seen him since and at the same time I know he's there. I hope this wasn't long and that I didn't freak you out too much. You did. Yes you did. If I turn up missing, you know what happened Oh God. I'm so glad that you read my story and I can't wait to listen to the other episodes on your October series. Thank you so much. Queen's stay. Safe Noah.

The Rack Extra: Total Bellas Season 4 Episode 7

"The. And welcome to the rack extra views right here on while talk radio dot com. He's rock, I'm Lindsay, and we're back with episode seven of total Bellas. And well, this wasn't a particularly exciting episode. This is what we call Gino, a filler. But there were things that happened. And we've got the answer to a cliffhanger do Peter got denied hard like he's moving in for the kiss and the Nikki's like, no, no we're going away for me. Kuti's? Yeah. She's like I thought you were going to tell me a secret. Instead he was going for kiss. And he's like, oh, Diana really wanna give you and she's like, no. And she says, she's not ready. She really likes him and she enjoyed the day. But she's just not ready, and he accepts that. And then he gets up, and he walks offer, even and then he comes back, and they leave so mind, you this date has been going on for quite some time. And by the time, Nikki gets back to breeze. It's almost one o'clock in the morning. Nikki bangs on the door beats down the door until breach shows up and well three in her sleepiness lake deputy f what you want. No camera people room me here. I just a thing. Why are you here? What? Yeah. So basically NICKY wants to tell the all about her date. And then you know, she is a little indignant would breathe once doesn't want to hear about it. 'cause you know, hey, she was asleep at one o'clock in the morning. But sure, yeah, tell me all about your date, and then the storms often huff as you don't wanna hear from in front. Whatever and it gets really busy. You just woke her up you through cameras in her face. And you wonder why she doesn't want to hear your batch of date. Great. I'm just saying sometimes sometimes people like to see call coming Kersey. This was the only time I was really Reese corner throughout the so. Yeah, for you had every right to be like, okay. Sure. Nikki was telling anyway. So. Yeah. Implicitly had to get early. Get her makeup done. She make up so she can do more of the TV show. Yeah. So the next day. And by the way, we are three weeks revolution. No one three weeks to level. It's not that volition Seattle one. Oh, this one's not a mystery. Now, it's not a mystery. Although there are things going on with the pollution boys on Monday night, raw and well, yeah. It's called a date day. We all we all see you. We all see you anyway, moving on Breen. Nikki talk about the early morning hours or last night. And well, you know breath on Nikki was a was a robber because robbers not rub robbers don't arc. Bree. Rubbers? Don't Bryan, Bryan. Brag up in his underwear, and they looked at the window saw the cameramen and like how Nikki how sad is that. Like you wake up in the yearbook it up in the middle of the night. You've no idea who is at your house in the only way, you know, what your sister is. Because there's an entire camera crew following her around like how how sad is that kind of so Nikki wants to basically keep it platonic with Peter right now. And then she trying to figure out what the were platonic means. That was struggle for them. It was a struggle. I just kinda sorta shake my hand for a second. But we see family time with their grandma, and they're telling her how Nikki went on a date and she's so excited for Nikki. Because you know, he's finally moving on and family them. It was just family time. And we find out the girls are going to Austria and everybody super excited for that. And then we also find now that live is cleared, and that, you know. They're talking about who showdown and sort of like, oh, it's just build up like wrestlemainia. Okay. Kind of. I mean to bigger rain like Russell lets you. Oh, only similarity. Yeah. But still I mean, I think they're trying to explain it to their grandma. And I think the only context she has mania reduce but the on the good news lives cleared, so brea has certain Zaidi buckling back to Ron wrestling again. Because of what happened with live Morgan, which is fair, you know, again, she still trying to work through injuring live and get a really kind of get through that. So we'll have to see how that goes. But she's getting better with it. She's ok with it. Now, meanwhile, Brian is being adorable with his daughter, and he's teaching her how to recycle and how to sort recyclables, which was cute as hell, and we see him kind of getting back to those earthy roots. And he's he's feeling like, you know, they didn't they're not doing the things that they used to do for the environment. And you know, they're using plastics. They're increasing their carbon footprint and Brian just wants to kind of get back to their core beliefs. He feels like they've sort of abandoned them a little bit. Because of you know, life and work and having a baby and a lot of stuff got put to the wayside when pretty was four. And because it's like it's great to have that lifestyle. But you know, sometimes it just has to get put on hold because you have a baby to cars big home things that didn't want before another habit actually to be fair going. And I mean way back to like season one or two of total divas, Brian Embry were how shopping is I recall, breathe all his always wanted a big house? Ryan was the one that didn't want the the big house, and he he's, you know, compromise with her this time for the bigger house. So yeah. So not we didn't want a big house. He doesn't wanna be castle ego thing. So yeah, just pointing that out for the record. Anyway, we're at raw we're getting ready. They're talking about koalas, you know, going to Australia and all that other stuff in basically, how you know, you can't hold Qualls anymore because if on you, apparently they will give you Clemencia or or one point with syphilis. Yeah. Well, they thought it was syphilis in their light no-no is committee. It's like, you know, the immaculate video was dropped. Okay. All right. So that's always a good time. This is also wrong. The slow introduction into reality. TV world to let's continue on that. Anyway. Yeah. And now is there in their laughing and joking and having a time, and, you know, talks about going in front of the audience after all, the, hey, you know, and she just wishes they would just shut up already and how you know, the smarties never liked her and her always trying to tear down nighttimes in that. She's a, yeah, they try to do the same thing to me, you know, whereas they sell me on the poster in. They're like, why wise I on their she sucks. Thanks, guys. So I mean, you know, it's just basically they're all tired of the internet negatively. But, unfortunately, at least for the time being that is what comes with your territory is the price of fame. Sevilla's Wego said again, if you don't like what's being Sony evacuate the next yet? So we see Rana versus ruby Bray realizes that you know, she's being a little bit over dramatic about everything. Everything is actually fine. No kidding. But you know, she she's just she's gotta work through it and get their own time. You can't you can't force. That leaves you realize leash. She realize it, which you know, from can't swamp. Something. Keep going. Let's keep going. So anyway, the budding romance between Peter, and Nikki, no, no, you're wrong budding romance between Peter and Brian that too. But they're really the it's technically between Peter in Nikki because he super interested in Nicki. But I'm pretty sure if he proposed marriage to Brian tomorrow that would happen fry would be like piece by I'm marrying him. Now, Brian is completely love or leave recycles Alevi recycles, which I'm sure Bryan could get him to do. But anyway, Petersen's a very thoughtful gift to Nikki because it on their original date. He had brought her liquorice because he had heard she liked licorice. But he didn't bring the right Brandt. He didn't bring her favorite kind. So as a makeup for that. He sends her every brand of black liquorice there is and they're all going. Oh. Isn't that? Sweet. Oh my God. Isn't that? Sweet. And Brian being Brian goes. So wait, all it takes ten dollars worth of liquors to get you to go on a second date pretty much way to suck the romance out of the moment, Brian. I'm very proud of you what the it's what he does best. So then we cut to bream Brian food shopping there at an organic food store, not whole foods, and they're trying to reduce their packaging, and unfortunately, a lot of today's foods, even in organic food stores come in either some kind of plastic or in paper, or in some sort of packaging, and Brian really trying to reduce their carbon footprint, and how much plastic in particular that they're using and just sort of try to packaging other lies, which is really really big ask to do. I mean, I'm sorry kind of is especially when you're inefficient sore like the really the only way you can avoid doing that is if you're going to a farmer's market, and you're taking your. Own Tupperware with you to pack up the food. No, I'm with you on the watermelon. Thanks. She wanted to buy watermelon. That was already pre cut in plastic package. I'm not about the plastic Patrick's part is you can buy the watermelon like three dollars Scheepers than the Cup thing because they charge you like three more additional dollars cut through cut. They do cut your own food safety money, okay? To be fair to defend her. She was leaving the next day leaving I'm fine with her wanting to buy them just giving money advice by the without the packaging. He would know. So all right. Moving on from that, basically breeze picking up stuff Brian's putting it back and Brian is kinda shooting down everything that Bree wants to buy. And so she's like, so are you gonna cook? And he's like, yeah, I'm gonna cook. Because she's a lot of the stuff that she was picking up as like frozen food and bottled water, and this and that and the other like basically pre made stuff, and so she he's like, you know, she she just goes I have no time to cook. We have no time I need something pre made or something really easy to make quick to make because of their schedule. So she's like are you going to cook for me? And he's like, yeah. Yeah. I'm going to cook for you. And they kind of have a little bit of a tiff in the grocery store about it. And Brian vigilant just gives up 'cause he's like, I'm just tired of it a woman. I'm just going to give ages comes just gonna start eating meat embrace. Just like what we're going to have to find the solution. And again, I get it. I completely understand his perspective on it. But at the same time, it's like you're looking in the wrong place to reduce your carbon footprint like you're gonna. Grow to grocery store. Not by anything package that kind of completely defeats the purpose of going to a store. You really like I said you really almost have to go to a farmer's market. Or you have to grow yourself. I mean, you have to make yourself really almost self sustaining. Well, when he was retired. He was doing that. Now, he's back in the rain. He can't do that so much well, you know options, but we'll get into we'll get into his carbon footprint later because there's more on that. So anyway, we fly to Melbourne. They they're basically go to this hot springs if you've ever been to like a hot springs bath. It's really more of like a bath house kind of situation may be kinda sort him. Not really, I don't know. But that's the best way. I can compare it to because they had the actual hot springs that you can like work your way up to. And basically what they do is. They work you up in temperature to the hospitals new sit in hot springs, and then as a way to cool your body down you cool down, and you go and gradually colder water until you get to the final one, which is like ice cold. It's called the. Polar plunge and both girls do it. Which are like oh my God. It shockingly gold, but they do it, and Nikki Nikki Sarah most goes haywire. But they do it. So then we get to super showdown we have Bryan taking on MS. And we have run the Bellas taking on the riot squad. And here's where Brian's eco-friendly ISM comes into play. He feels like traveling there has increased his carbon footprint, and you know, having all the conveniences of like a protein shake or, you know, prepackaged food or this or that or the other like all the plastic. All this other stuff, you know, is again, increasing his carbon footprint, and it's like, okay. But you wanna wrestle right. He wants to wrestle. This is what he wants to do you have to travel to wrestle. So you have to use planes, and cars, and trains and everything you just don't travel by horseback. So, you know, there has to be you can't have zero carbon for hold on hold on imagine danube-rhine. What from Talmud pound horseback? Oh, that would be that would be a Larry. I've could behind that show. I would get behind that. Then he has to clean up the poop. Well, here's the thing. He and ruined. That's what they're. Doing there is riding around the country in a in a carriage together. Yeah. So who? That's why got rowing to clean up the poop God. Yup. Yeah. That's exactly why. So. Yeah. But I mean, it's I'm sure actually I'm sure you could have zero carbon footprint. I have little doubt. There are people that actually do that. But I mean in terms of Brian in breeze lifestyle. He's not going to have zero. You get the private plane. You donate things, and it offsets everything that's out you get those zero carbon footprint, essentially, Brian is just frustrated with the whole thing because he's trying to live true to score values. And he just he can't seem to do it. So this is where we also find out that Nikki's going to main event evolution which she's very excited about embryos going to LA pre is less. Happy about that. Yeah. She's going to be. Remember back at home and bring us if NICKY would do and well Ray was always the skinny bitch. There were something she has to be that she's skinny once she has to be the heater and Nikki's the bigger ones. So she should be the star k and well to help Bryan with his frustration free decides to take him on a little outing. And where we end up is a beach cleanup in San Diego, which was totally not staged because they're marketing coordinator was there. Nope. Didn't around had no idea. But he he wore his walking shoes. Anyway. So we go to the beach clean up. They kinda get debriefed a little bit. And we see them out on the beach picking up garbage and plastic and trash and Brian is enjoying himself. He feels good about what's going on like see he's heaven. He's in heaven and breeze. Like see we can live true to who. We are. And we can do stuff like this. It's like we can have it both ways. Dude. I can have my goddamn burritos, and you can pick up plastic off the beach. It's perfect bounces out. Balances out. So yeah. So they're gonna make an effort to do more stuff like this. So that way, you know, they can feel better in live true core values and also teach birdie the important lessons of taking care of the environment because what's kind of driving Brian. This whole episode is you know, when birdies old enough to basically look at me like well, hey, dad's since the earth is ruined. Did you do your part to fix it and Bryde's going to embrace? It was like, well, we really haven't we've kind of contributed to it. But it's like, how do you know, that's going to be the case like the compete fine, which she's old enough to realize that you know, you've done all this for nothing. So there yet. Kyo? Now, we now we go to Monday night, Ron Chicago. There's a little chicanery going on as big Johnny walks up to Nikki until sir that well now evolutions changed Ono. There's a pro reversal what Nikki is slightly confused and irritated with breeze. Going to me start Nick, he's going to be the valet. And he's like what? Okay. I'll do it. But then see flat out has been be better. If I was in the rain, and I mean, you can see it from her perspective. Imagine being told, hey, you're going to be in the main event of the first ever all women's pay-view. Like, we're going to give you the shot, which is huge huge opportunity for Nikki make no mistake about that. And then suddenly it gets taken away and handed to somebody else. I would be pissed I would be livid. I I don't know about anybody else out there. But that's like any job ever that, you know, you're basically line for huge promotion, they come to you a couple of days later. They're like, oh, hey, yeah. By the way, the promotion we're gonna give it to somebody else. Even though we already promised to you is what? And I mean, ultimately you do deal with it. Because at your job doesn't mean you're happy about it like Nikki, actually get so pissed at one point. She breaks the case on her phone like just snaps it which for second. I thought she had actually broken her phone like she'd actually broken the thing in half the chan-. It was just the case. And this is where we find out that it was a prank that replayed on Nikki because th really good to have a stepdad in the front office because she can pull some legit pranks. And then we closing the show Bellas turn Hugh on Ron the rows iw as breezes of the end, the Bella bitches are back. I admit I mean, fully admit, the Bellas are better as heels they always have been together. Better zeal Brie with Brian good face. But when she's with Nikki, they're better, Hugh. That's who they are. That's their characters. That's the Bella bitches CEA. So now we see the build to Evelyn where we're gonna get Nikki Bella versa. Ronda Rousey, so this should be fun to reenter singer refund. Episode nothing of the you're really huge other than to do Peter having having blue balls, but that's about it. So there's a there is that. So I think that doesn't us. I think that does it for everybody. You know, you sit tight 'cause will be back with associate next week. But you've got stuff to plug direct ratio on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, twits, TV size deputy are lot phones.

I'm recovering drug addict and I've never felt more powerful drug than when crypto and my either started a PA aw lending money which take it will expand your brain. We cover a lot of money stories on this podcast but Dan's is one. That really got my attention. The moment I got a copy of his Book Confessions Russians Crypto millionaire I just had to stop and sit down and read it because his story is like so many of ours. He's this married worried father of three who was working a corporate job and he was completely not happy and one interesting thing you'll learn in this episode is Dan has a bit of an an addictive personality which I think a lot of a stupid. It really served him well because when he got interested in crypto currency he just couldn't stop learning it was like a day and night obsession so he and his wife decided to borrow two hundred thousand dollars against their home good or not good and bet it all on theory him the second most valued blockchain after bitcoin and look. You don't need to know anything about crypto currency to enjoy this episode in Dan in story but what I love about Dan is again. He's just like you and me and as he says I'm just a guy who had a belief acted on it and and managed to get it exactly right it Dan. I am so excited to have you on the podcast. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much on I. It's great to ear. Will your story is. Let's just say one that I think like great movies are made out of it really in intrigues me. I loved it reading your book and we have so much to cover but I think your story really intrigues me because I think we can all find a little bit of us in your story in in the prologue to your book not wrote that you invested because you wanted the underdog to win for once and then you go on to say that eighty five percent of people really hate their jobs I would love to just is chat about like. Where did we go wrong billing the society that hates their jobs and we always feel like we're underdogs? Yeah I agree and I agree. Even though I wasn't an outlier in the story in terms of my ups and also my downs I figured that most people just from being human being in having friends and family could relate late to at least some that maybe a lot of it and you know it's a very good question I I talk about the book Sapiens in on my story. Orey Yeah by Yuval Harari. I think I probably butchering his name but one of the things that he talks about is how human beings one of our superpowers is to work in cooperation with others and that's sort of the end stage. That is what we're experiencing now with corporate America. It's highly coordinated did creating great economic value all over the globe. I mean look at the things. humanity is created. I mean not I'll of course but but but you know like I say in the book it's MoD work in modern work in some ways a deep sliver in our he'll and yes you know people in Corporate America have you good lives and can pay the bills but it's so unfulfilling for so many people and we know that anecdotally at least I did did and then we also know it because of the studies that eyesight and and one thing I do mention though I say in the book and I feel strongly about is like this is a first world problem there I I wouldn't call. This is the biggest problem facing humanity by a long shot. I'm not a refugee most of your listeners. I'm sure all are not like people in deep deep deep trouble like at a refugee level or living in the kind of poverty where they can't afford to put a roof over their head or food to eat but but that said though it is it is it is kind of it's crazy to me that we have one life to live. you know we get what eighty years knock on wood in if if you're in corporate America like I was you know I was miserable. I the bureaucracy the chain of command the the the meetings and the politics in everything everything and you know we just take it for granted that that's part of the human condition and I don't know maybe it is but when I learned about blockchain cryptocurrency not the Crypto to buy coffee but crypto to find a new kind of decentralized type of organization that was part of the reason why I got so excited because I feel like it was kind of an antidote to some of the Malays sort of quiet desperation that throw mentions that I had experienced for most of my working life yeah yeah and I tell me a little bit about your money story story like prior to discovering crypto currency. Did you grow up knowing about money or or was this you know like most of us trial and error process us yeah. It's a good question so basically my father was a high school principal. My mom worked at sears part time so we had enough money we were solidly. Middle Class US and I had a lot of friends in the eighties whose parents were higher up the economic ladder which didn't cause extreme differences but like they would drive. BMW's and they had memberships. I used to claim the clubs at the at the club to play golf and they would get it for free. So I wor- sears closed. They were Nikes. He's I mean this is like the stuff that is just part of growing up in his funny looking back but on but you know so we never we never had a lot of money but we we always had enough once. I started my career. I really thankfully I don't remember I don't remember why or how but I really got into to find a reading about finance personal finance and investing and I mean really the the way that translated was that I contributed to my 401k's at an early the age and I really got the whole concept of compound interest in the seventh wonder of the world or whatever I completely believe that and then the earlier earlier part of my career when I was in a corporate environment and I did get a taste of what it was all like even though I had some success I started to think for whatever reason back back then this would be like right around the DOT com boom about how I might get out and I. I don't know if you've ever covered your money or your life. I know you've covered fire topics ex financial independence early but I got really into a book your money your money or your life and also this book the Tightwad Gazette which is like the Bible for saving money and I took sort of an extreme step in my mid to late twenties. I moved back home with my parents. I quit my job. I sold my car and I was going to try to do financial independence. It's just by saving as much as I could and living kind of like a hermit life you know right now. I was GONNA move to Eureka like you know I did a year volunteer service out of college so I knew how to Sh- shop really cheap and even go to some food kitchens at the time that seemed like a good idea India and so anyway that was that and then then when I had when I got married and had kids all that kind of went out the window and it was just about not trying to make my way provide for my family my wife. also has a big career where we she she. We both of us were breadwinners. One wasn't the primary yeah that kind of leads me into the in the middle of my career right yeah wow so. What point did you get turned don to Crypto Kersey. Did you think like quote unquote. This is going to be the thing that fixes my life. Yes yes so so basically I had all all these ups and downs at the company accompanied that I referred to his act me I for legal reasons I I I I very carefully describe that in the acknowledgements but basically ups and downs there and mostly by fault of my own I realized at that point I had an addiction problem. I book goes goes into a lot of my demons site once I was able to get through that I you know my brain the way my brain works is I'm. I'm looking for good or bad. I'm looking for a way to make me feel different a lot and so I became obsessed with blogging because I've always liked to write. I really really got into that but ultimately I had a hard time figuring about how out how it was gonna make make me any money so it was simply in early two thousand fifteen fifteen. I came across an article on Bitcoin and whereas previously I had her I had heard about it and I thought Oh this. Is You know plus. I didn't WanNa feel like learning about it. It's like very complicated as we all know. Cutting edge tech guy like a reasonably intelligent legit person but I don't have any special skills deciphering this kind of stuff but I had the necessary incentive and one thought just came across my mind because Bitcoin at the Times Times at three hundred and it was simply. What if it goes up again. Now you know in in now so it was like pure sort of greed like the idea like how can I make a lot of money. How can I get out of this miserable corporate life and then soon after that. It became much more complicated if it was just that what I don't know if I would have been able to invest if I would have got myself to appointed US considering all the struggles. I'd put my family through but it was more than that. It was this whole idea. Da Behind Crypto is this idea of decentralisation which always gets lost in the in the discussion of price and it's just like Crypto when you get into it is like the heady mix mix of like greed and speculation and investing and all the good and bad words you associate with money with this like odd. God idealism this odd like sort of Utopia vision this whole idea which the foundation of which all of it is idea of decentralisation. Maybe we could do do things without the cult of leadership coal to down kind of thing so that's that's. That's how I got. I got into it and where we're at kind of started. Believe me that's interesting because like what you're saying. It was more than just hey. This thing might be able to make money. It was really rooting yourself in the the concept behind it which you you could apply that to anything in life when you do that then you get more excited. You're willing to learn more like it. It just becomes more fascinating to you. Yeah that's exactly right and it was and that's what when people talk about Crypto people that are into crypto. We all talk about going down. The Rabbit added whole I always assumed I was just like I'm GonNa make a bunch of money but it's a whole new way of looking at things which may or may not doc come to fruition. I think I'm rational enough to say that some of the stuff that cryptos trying to do might be impossible. I I happen to be someone who believes that that eventually development in human activity will create crypto systems that are much more wide widespread usable and solves problems for people today but it is the rabbit hole really is that whole idea but it's also married the greed. That's why it's this strange beast say in the book like finding Cryptos not like sending a sending an update to your linked profile. It's almost like a full religious conversion. It's like especially for people like me that go all in yeah. Yeah exactly you talk about in this in the book this duality that you were driven by that you know about taking on risk which I think is is really interesting because everything in life is a risk reward conversation. How much do you WanNa risk for that particular award. How did YOU WAY WAY OUT RISK. Versus reward or was risk not even maybe like a central character in your story. It was amazing because we always he's just a t in two thousand eight. We lost our home equity line. which was our our security blanket? My wife Law Rooster for clients in her. Pr Dr Business and then soon after I started at at Acme and I was you know struggling and so we we really struggled along there for many years while my three kids young and yeah just like the getting new fender you know getting a speeding ticket all the things that just pop up in anyone's one's lives it eat away but right around two thousand fourteen we have this this this windfall and it was like finally some of my stock options invested. My wife was working for a company that got acquired by Microsoft and she got about I think twenty five thousand dollars and then my mom who's in her eighties eighty sold their house and gifted me and my brothers and sisters by fifty thousand dollars each so it was like whoa suddenly we had this nest egg. It was like almost one hundred thousand dollars and we always given to our 401k so we had that but you can't really touch that unless you're crazy or something's actually I ended up being but but I but basically that hundred thousand dollars is what gave me. It felt like new money. Even though I knew like this is the kind of chance you need to leverage fully fully an e. Don't blow it because this will probably never happen again but I had that which we needed because we were still in the whole it ought to be honest by the time I invested I mean I was literally spending like ten hours a day on crypto content talking to people meet up the twitter visit now. I'm not saying like there was no risk because I figured it all out there was I knew it was a sure thing absent in my brain. I did think it was a sure thing I was like absolutely positive at this was the right time to get into it when I when I made the initial plunge yes. There was not really a rational thought about risk. It was more like a bit of foreboding voting in the back of my brain which also had to do with relations with my wife and the fact that I didn't really share everything with her at least up front and ask the AH so I am blown away by the interview but we'll get back to the rest of it. After this ask Shawna question this one came from Berry and Stephanie. Hey Sean our we've been listening. Thank for over a year in love all the episodes. Thanks for the constant variety and honesty for making learning about money fun when I share your podcast with friends. They're like really you. You want me to listen to a money podcast. I'm just like yeah it will change your life so we're getting married this year and I know you've done a lot of podcasts about couples and relationships and we will love them all. I'm curious if you could give us one piece of advice post wedding. What would it be. Thanks again and I'm so excited to hear all the new episodes in two thousand nineteen eighteen. Oh man that's a great question and I totally get your friends responses to the podcast. I thought about that. When I started a podcast I thought who in the world all is going to want to listen to me Babylon about money but now we're four hundred and fifty plus episodes in and I guess somebody's interested but in listening to me Babylon about money so I get it. One piece of advice is always hard for me to will down. I get asked that question a lot if you give me one piece of advice and I say that to my interview subjects as well so I'm kinda throwing the ball back at them but it's really hard to come up with one thing because there's so much that I have learned in relationships and marriages in getting divorced I mean we could just do a whole year of podcast just on that content but I would have to say spend time talking and writing out a joint vision for your life think of it like your family or relationship ship mission statement if you will and a mission statement is just something that most companies are all companies come up with. It's kind of their their credo or for what they're gonNA be about. So what are you. GonNa do with your life. What impact you WANNA make. Where do you want to live. How much money is enough and that's a really good question because I don't think people spend enough time thinking about that one. You want to make more money. But how much money is that sweet spot for you. So what are your strengths. What are the areas. You need to work on etc answer all of these questions and then put together in a mission statement for a your relationship think of it like your relationship. GPS So we've done this several times and I can just tell you that is completely life-changing. It helps us focus on us and not get caught up in what other people or family members. Hello Society excetera expect of us and it's it's. It's really easy to get lost as a couple when the shit hits the fan so it's great to come back to this as just a reminder of wire together together and what you're trying to achieve in life so if I had to whittle it down to one thing all there are so many things I really want to tell you. That would be the one thing. The one piece of advice is just to figure out jointly. What are you jointly about and I think that is so powerful and it's going to take you you further than you can even imagine especially. I think when someone get so passionate Ashen it about something it's easy to forget like Oh there. Are Other people involved here in my life for the or maybe I should consult with them on something. It's kind of like okay. I'm really into this thing in this money's going Yup Yup and and my wife it always seems to be obsessed with different things and most recently as I mentioned it was blogging talking and I would like to spend time on our vacations like trying to pound out another story to get likes and recommends and I was really obsessed. It actually played my favor in this case though because once I got into Crypto Adele she sort of avoided asking me about it because I the conversation could be by very long and if I if that she had an interest in it we might it be talking about the theory Bitcoin so it led me to a sense were since my family in my family. We always talked about money like it wasn't taboo subject. We would like. I knew like how much my dad made my brothers and sisters. If someone got a new job they'd be like oh my gosh offering fifty grand you know and it is actually I realized that I lean field is more typical. They don't really talk about money. They don't know how much money each other has. There's actually something nice about that but but because she doesn't like talk about money and because she didn't express any interest in my growing fascination with cryptocurrency I sort of tried to trick myself into thinking well. I'm the guy in charge of our investments so maybe this is just in my purview so so let let's rewind a little bit because I think they're still this shred of cloud. I should say of of mystification around the CRYPTO currency. Can you give us. I may be asking arapahoe question here. Can you give us like even the cliff notes like what what is crypto. What is Bitcoin. What does your Syrian yeah yeah sure. I definitely will so yeah. The the least interesting thing that someone can do with Crypto is like by by a cop a cup of coffee with digital currency. I mean yeah that's kind of interesting but it's not the mind-blowing thing that's got so many people's imagination going what would the crypto releases its and. I will be very careful here just to give a few sentences because I don't want to bore your viewers. Your listeners but crypto is crypto currencies. The the fuel that pays for blockchain's to function and blockchain's are unconnected unaffiliated computers running the same computer program that are validating transactions business arrangements currency transactions through through a algorithm that makes it basically impossible for anyone to game the system to take control to do fraud anything like that so blockchain's. That's why the big big deal boxing as they're called trust. Lewis and what that means is. You don't need to trust anyone. You don't need to trust capital one to keep your data. You don't need to trust Google goal to make sure your personal information is safe. The blockchain is really ironclad unaccessible kind of computer system and Crypto crypto currencies are the fuel that pays for these computers to run the system and so when a block Ching says like say a theory right now a theory you know we have the APP store right the Apple Apple APP store and what a theory is working on is a the Dow up store. They don't call it a store but it's decentralized applications and whereas now Uber's the airbnb is the lifts the you know all all these different those are just share like sharing applications but lots and lots of different centralized computer programs facebook even they their their applications that are run out of server farms and the rules are set by the people that own the server farms the money is collected informative advertising the people on the reforms reforms if and when blockchain's mature especially on the Therion blockchain which is number one in development for these kinds of things there will be a decentralized alternative where you you have a little bit of Crypto. That's automatically in your browser that helps pay for you to access these things. No you get paid for advertising so that's even more than I wanted ago but that's the theory it's really rebuilding the worldwide web in a decentralized fashion. It's rebuilding finance in a decentralized faction fashion. There's maker. Dow is a a decentralized finance platform where people without any central control can go in lend their the ether or other currency currency and get interested in return so brand new bugs. It's a little bit buggy. It's a little bit hard to elaborate buggy but it's still a little hard to use. There's there's enough there where you can and see where it's going. Is this the future. Do you think this is the way we're moving or. Is this still going to be an alternate currency type well well. I think if I don't think cryptos ever going to disrupt Fiat like US dollars or the euro and again. I think that's less interesting. I think what it could do though is disrupt centralized institutions corporations through things called distributed autonomous organizations or Dow's which you'll be hearing more about in the future. There's some things that just can't be decentralized but there's a lot of things that can and the benefits once it's actually usable by a normal person like me not like a tech genius yes the benefits are great in terms of security privacy freedom to operate a do financial transactions without out a lot of central control and things like that. I think it's coming in. There's there's there's thousands of developers that are working on it. Despite the fact that it's it's crypto winner and everyone's sort of forgotten about crypto after the crazy two thousand seventeen bull run. The development is happening. It's picked up pace and it reminds me of Amazon Amazon during dot Com Amazon spiked and then it crashed down to like two dollars but it was still working building and everything now you see where Amazon's at Nelson's yeah. I am a true believer but I think it's coming yeah. Look at it now. Wow yeah that's crazy and everything about this is so oh super fascinating to me. I I got to Chapter Twenty Six in your book which you titled. Now and it talks about all of those kind of scary scary changes that started happening in the market for crypto currency and I love it. You say it was like a nine point zero earthquake with an infinite number of nine. Pinola shocks which I live in Los Angeles so I understand that metaphor there and that you you've had this moment where you thought like. Oh my gosh if this all crashes like I'm GonNa. I have to tell my kids my wife as you say Darrow Dad fucked up and I can imagine that that moment of fear and of course it. It didn't go that way but I'd love to share a little bit of that story like what was happening when things were crashing down and how are you feeling through those moments yeah it was I even though it was obviously like amazing and thankfully for me. It ended well. I wouldn't want to relive it again. It was I'm a former drug addict dumber recovering drug addict and I've never felt more powerful drug than when crypto and my either started to pop and I bought it at twelve and do it would it would go up some days once once two thousand seventeen really started. I mean I would I would go to a movie and when I came out of the movie Uvi I'd be up like six hundred thousand dollars my God. I mean even more than that. I mean there were days where there were multi-million dollar swings and I couldn't get over I mean the euphoria was an intense amazing. I mean it's like you're manic. Depressive right the Mannix love the manic manic part and it was I felt I hit my stride and I was telling everyone about it and I didn't even care if they were going to invest but I had so much wind in my sails that was like the perfect communicator like like like twelve people in my orbit including like the retired insurance salesman in the neighborhood and my my my tax guy who told me that I should get out of it but by the end of the meeting he decided to invest ten thousand in and the next day he called me and said he put twenty thousand so then when it crashed though even if I was way up on paper you know it was like the depths of hell it was because when crypto crashes you never know when it's GonNa stop crashing especially then it's gotten less volatile on continue to be but a little bits of money could could could people selling could cause a panic and it was just like you know. I I had to kind of like try to sleep early or just try to some way to get my mind off it at the very end. That's one even I realized in my you. You know like this dream state sort of halfway been living in for about nine months that it I would be crazy if I didn't take more off the table and I had a financial financial advisor firm and he sent me a note and just said today the photographer that was gonna take our picture didn't show up. He quipped to Trade Bitcoin fulltime. I have two eighty a year old. Investors who have both asked me if this is the right time to buy crypto and he basically said in all my years of experience twenty years of experience. I've I've never seen this this. This happened with an emerging asset. I cannot imagine that it would be a good thing and you know he was. He was a friend of mine to use a very good straight man and it really forced. I mean to to get to that scene where I'm kind of just really trying to rip apart the part that I was addicted to it from the I've got family kids. Yeah Yeah so what's that mean. How do you make that evolution now. How do you you know stick with something that obviously is made you a ton of money but also balance silence that out you know that's a really good question and and so basically the crazy thing is for the past two years. I've been writing the buck with all my obsessive possessiveness and focus and multiple painful at it's all all that kind of stuff and so I really now I've got. I've got to take a step back and you know I've got some of the things I start to grow up with the very end. Is You know why do I have these chips on my shoulder. Why do I always need to be proving myself beyond the great deal financial santeuil peace and all the rational stuff about decentralisation clearly. I was trying to prove something to everyone including myself and I talk about that in the book. Even when it's kind of embarrassing thing so I I can't go on. I can't go on like this again. Another first world problem you know because but I've got a number of four as meditation Asian now some cushion meditation and Water Swimming. I've lost some yeah. Yes I know I know but I need to do that and you know and so I try to make sound like it's not a happily ever after I'd take my position any day of the week obviously but I'm GonNa have to work for it because I do have demons and they can come come back out and the in this case like I call my flipside flipside helped me get to this point and so I've got to kind of be proud of him in a way but I've gotta a look beyond that and try to live in the moment more yeah wow so much good stuff it Dan if if you could sit with someone for a few a few minutes and maybe they could pick your brain. What would you want them to take away. Maybe like you know two or three takeaways from from your journey of of going from you hating work to this amazing discovery into the millionaire status like what do you think are the couple of things that are most important that people people should know. I would say the first one is like. It's never too late to reinvent yourself. You know in in any way and I'm I'm proof of that. I mean you know I for years ago. It wasn't even writing you know and but I got sober and somehow I got a seat of inspiration and I just kind of feted every day and I ended up with the crypto stuff but even more importantly I wrote this book and I'm I'm more proud of that than the than the crypto stuff because you know I I really took a lot of perseverance so it's never too late to do that. It really isn't if you can start small and just keep going. You can get there and the other is that I think you know hey. We only get one life to live that I think I do you take corporate life for granted how miserable it is. It's why movies like nine to five and the Matrix and office space or so like Colt hits because because everyone recognizes it and I admire you doing this podcast and putting up your shingle and and all the work that you do as an independent person and I think I do think that corporate America is ripe to be disrupted and that includes the darlings like facebook and Google and twitter. Maybe even especially maybe even especially but I think those would be the two big takeaways. The other would be is considering crypto investment because I know a lot. Your listeners interested interested in investing. Obviously I would say the one thing I would say about it. Is it's super high risk obviously but there's a lot of high risk there's a lot of high risk assets out there currency derivatives all this stuff. The thing about Crypto is that I think the risk is there but the reward I have every confidence that it's GonNa in a pop again in the next few years. No one knows when but there's too much happening on the developer and for not too so I would recommend. I'm not a financial adviser. Sir You know all that but I would recommend for people that have a high risk tolerance to consider putting five or ten percent of their their their money into crypto if they are you're looking at for a high risk investment that could pop and has also been correlated with other investments but you interview people my story so take it with a grain of salt people so I know you've already decided you absolutely have to re Dan's Book Confessions of a Crypto millionaire. It's available on Amazon. I promise you it is a fascinating donating story to read again.

fix anthem but first we're GONNA need money to do it yeah that would be similarly tone-deaf it would have been I we don't really know what you want but we don't ads and not anyone else you can do that this grab box is you can hoard you're crafting opponents I am shocked you could not do that before and this is a subscription service you have to pay money for texture doesn't care about me personally by me in my attachment to greg like most people in life yeah I mean you got to care about something and it makes something nit-pick about everything but like I don't think that this news in particular is that egregious paired with the fact that it's not coming out with the awesome expansion it's coming out I thought about it today or yesterday and I was like we're pretty much the beginning of October I can month delay the time no not at all a little under a week group of people playing fall at seventy six that are dedicated that care they're like how can we get money from those people and I I honestly feel that is the direction that this news overhaul this game and make sense to do something like this but that's being completely tone deaf to the way this has rolled out its entire time and that's the thing is like free they wanNA monetize the game somewhere else totally so it kind of makes sense from that respect like maybe atom microbes are doing it for them if they want to really internally we're GonNa delay this membership thing as well because we talked a little bit earlier this week about what publishers really want to do is they wanNA have a monthly subscription for games and service yeah they can he made enough money out of this game in the first place so we're going to try and bill you for a little bit more that's probably not the actual like logic in the boardroom but it's what it comes off point in addition to your existing camp monthly atoms they fall out I member you receive the best value for an atom bundle to date with a monthly butter so sixteen fifty atoms you can they were to be like you know what it's not delayed it's actually coming out early and here's this other thing if you want it right then I don't think people would be of course people everyone's going to have where this messaging could be coming from like who are the people the this is a good idea right now yeah like when you delay their initial expansion you should have been like us freely in the atomic shop it's lose cosmetics explore Appalachia in icon fallout style with the ranger armed outfit and show off your new members status optional contents that again just makes a better experience for the people that are really fucking in there can be a great thing you know one deliver that with the great thing that you already promised yes as a month when you look at game pass right as an analog to this where does the value lie the money if you want to all right let's take a step back the cost yes so did I mention the actual costs because it is a hundred Suaram always move did he really get unflustered advice he's like textile don't standstill the Gary would've slogan is not making moves okay your standards I thought he literally just so the longest shortest essays I'm not GonNa read through their entire fucking thing 'cause they go into a disciplinary detail private world is basically private servers if you just WanNa play with your friends this going we're gonNA keep it good we're going to keep us in your feedback but there's going to be a subscription service we're used to subscription services they just need to be worth it to you or optional dollars a year that is around what Netflix cost one hundred dollars a year or I thought I saw that it was thirteen dollars a month yeah you can also pay that much to thirteen doc. Instead of expansion expansion gets delayed if anthem did this and anthem and follow or games where we're comparing earlier to if they did this like all of a sudden like Luke triple eight experience that if you have game pass you get that's nuts that they are going to be like you know what we're going to charge more for this thing that airbase is and what they want to do a video game and then be like hey this is we're going to double down on those features and there's cost associated with that we're going to news is going and that's a problem because it's not how can we get money from them to make this a better experience it's just how how can we just get with some money from this not make it a total failure if they rolled out like that thing is this game we're free this'll be totally different okay it does not have a season pass so but yeah it is a this is a game that's still cost money yeah like it's not free its unique follow first player I can't see boats all of which are exclusively available to fall out I members tim what the fuck are they thinking honestly like no please don't make us do this right now and then there is some like hey there's a plan and we have to stick to the plan for XYZ reasons we don't know whether it's the ominous a tough pill to swallow for people because they don't change but I think that that is the right model is created thing get the bugs out figure stuff out figure out who who I'm sure logic in the boardroom is look we fucked this up but there's still people playing there's still a fair amount of people playing it not what they dreamed of and hoped of but there's a large not only have they not proven works they've proven doesn't work right and proving that they don't have the ability to fix it in a timely fashion they haven't done the make good on it yet yeah what do that because nobody would really pay it goes but that's I guess things differently and I understand why they WANNA do it because if they're going to give it away experiences if there is cost associated with those types of features so needing a bit more to be able to give the best optimum experience for for that eighty and admittedly a bit out of that type of game so I I don't know if it's standard to have those features in those games because I wouldn't be surprised does this game of the season pass I don't know off the top of my head but like is Margaret transactions amnesties pass and a subscription service like yeah that's to play you download the launcher it's like hey you get followed seventy six for free also because it's free were asking you for this sort of thing and like the experiences are free so we're asking you to pay a little bit more but if it's still the same as it was sixteen sixteen fifty atoms is not like a huge amount like it's an just let we we talked before that they should have put this game at early access for a year for his mice if they rolled out like yeah it's going to be early access when it does launch we want to have private servers because it does it cost us money so we got to pay for it like I think that would make that would look better than just this like you can win them out while we're yeah like if they'd said okay actually if you WANNA pay that might look worse but I think it'd be better value of if you want to just give us ten dollars for subscription fee and we're going to try to make the game better for those people that are really into it by the time that fear rolls out I think that'd be fine I think that that would be good I think that that would be understand if that's the case if other games are just like yeah no this is just standard than God's yet another example seventy sixers digging deeper and deeper play this only like we're splitting a subscription cost so he can all play together I don't know I mean I'm sure there are people out there that just shareholders or who the fuck knows what it is but they decided that now is the time even for financial perspective I I'm sure somebody paying for him I guess but he is why are just me and my seven my friend just playing another game like are we all that into follow seventy six that we have to yeah again I mean that's the thing is that what point is it just better is this better suit is deal to buy Alicarte what you want that survival tent quickly set up a forward operating base to your next adventure and they're wilders new survival tend once played the accident second free fast travel seven people for you and your friends are up to seven of your friends to join us so maybe eight people said this earlier but this these features sound like things that should have to spend there yeah that's true for but the longer this game has been out the longest this game is out I feel like the harder it's going to be to get people in two planes ended the day that's the thing that is the worst because we are navigating through this new world of revenue streams as an industry is going you know we're not gonNA make much money if we just launched us later like there's going to be fewer setups today than there would be six months from now or like three months from now I don't know man but big like value what do you think like the actual thing they're offering so private servers but it's worse you giving feedback and also participating in these things when it's applicable to things that they care about the evaluation right it's it's just done with another hundred yeah yeah no that's this doesn't sound good this doesn't sound good for the community that has made for me Oh fit like an Alpha month is not great you know I don't know I be paying for that plus all the other stuff is worth one hundred dollars a year they usually aim pass I'm thinking like game pass right now has new Vegas it has outer worlds if you wanted a fun experience for that money earlier and I saw some people found in the very early fallout notes there are references to things like this so they've clearly been planning this for some time and there must have been just summed it on the counter that was forever and I will also be curious to see the actual not the actual numbers general sense of the numbers of how many people are like that if if you're watching live right now we usually and I think that bold new ideas are necessary and I think that new attempts at different styles of subscription services and micro transactions and season passes and go ahead like a special thing like yeah we're just going to have the I don't fucking know the my little pony private world because me and my friend brownies or whatever like you have to and let us know what all right there's not a whole lot more we can talk about that until we hear more from foul fans Mbatha so let's quickly move on battled passes and whatever the fuck you want to call every single different code paints on the same idea right I feel like we need to experiment and users need to be open to on to Suda fifty one and swear he's sixty five are working together are an indie horror game called Ho- Hotel Barcelona at maybe to the headline because they might have just been drunk this is from Gamespot by Richard Wakeling I G in Japan has just host they live stream for Travis Monday nitro which just appeared to be away for no more heroes Creator ccable we can't we have to launch this at this time otherwise from a PR perspective from a marketing perspective. I can't imagine anyone but that's the game like Yeah Day so he pulls his arm around me and vice me and I just the three of us talking for the next three hours while they got super drunk one time at GTC I ended up at a Karaoke yeah like that's going to be good enough for you and like I it's been a while since I've looked at voluntary sixers economy so I don't know how much it's changed kind of funny dot com slash you're wrong rain all players in the private road was even notification that world will soon shutdown private worlds currently do not support Maude and it'll be just like adventure mode as you know it today so you can't even people are going to accept this right now yeah totally and that's the problem there's so many cogs in the machine that you know it's not like everyone there is like this is a good idea we've got to do it I'm sure there's a ton of people like what are we doing you could pay for gave as old and that's the thing is for the people that want the experience shirt new Vegas is an old game outta world is not right that is a new experience don't use your wrong for this type of thing but go to dot com slash you're wrong if you're somebody out there that's in the fall of seventy six community that is interested in this eighteen discuss working on a game together live always they always end up getting too drunk to remember what was telling the livestream are what was said so this is a way for them to capture video the vote with your wallet in both the bad way and a good way if you if you like fuck this doesn't seem worth don't get it but when you see things that you like well there's a lot of value there for what they're giving me let me you win wow yeah but if that like if that happened and you just left or be kicked out of the group or whatever and then the world just dies so everything we've done with it already go well I actually did not read the entirety of the private world stay in some of this just sucks ass it's me I'm wrong if no fallout I members to do it the Bethesda way on their private server that is bullshit like if you're going to read that out it seems like it's I don't know that that is aboard the pair of Eagles Sorry eccentrics centric misread that word completely the pair of eccentric gained alpers revealed that they've been meeting since two thousand the whole for me the monthly Adams is the thing that's like okay they realize it's the bad value so there's Miss World or the virtual currency down their throat rations because there are about suspense uncertainty nervousness they want the game to be light and easy to play with Henault switch and mobile mentioned as potential platforms discussions have apparently it's inspired by the two thousand and four horror game siren which is a great game had a PS three remake which is also great and swear also mentioned David Lynch and season three of twin peaks as mhm get it you know I would love to hear from like Hardcore Faw's fans what did they think of this is the thing it's like Oh thank God we've been asking for this Dole Bass Name Yeah Hotel loaded for Indie horror game from these guys I'm fucking he later backtracked those hotel Barcelona can take place in Tokyo South Africa you've heard of this all of this is amazing 'cause like part of me honestly believes that they're just about to will this into existence yeah and or a game called Hotel Barcelona was Suda fifty one came up with half an hour before the stream began because he'd liked the game to take you to the Spanish city I love everything about that also Freddie and when I walked in Suda fifty one was seeing don't stop me now by queen their drug and it was glorious this yeah get song this extremely the hell out obviously hotel is in the early early stages of development considering the livestream essentially a brainstorming session it might be about a magazine writer visiting a hip New Hotel underpaying the money for that that's a dealbreaker yeah of oh well Tim's account Tim's ethically gain there'd be nothing weird in at all he landed right now goodall plane man let's just do it hotel. Barcelona could be Disneyland Yeah why the fought you could name Hotel Barcelona pretty much anyplace mitigate nuclear throne and Celeste is interested in composing music for Hotel Barcelona I wonder if he actually is he later tweeted is the first so yeah that was a lot of it he at some point called the creator of Silent Hill Toyama on the phone during the library was like hey do you wanna be unbranded year them booze was still involved because livestream was held in a bar with twenty people and frankly the whole thing was kind of amazing the game in question is an Indian issue Tim Bay one hundred dollars but we find out the white nationalist so he's not in the group anymore damn going nasty I was going you know sexy time as he or she and drunk they were both getting drunk s this reminds me a lot of kind of funny it's coming wall we're on shows I know he's asked me to text occasionally show Yeah Okay Oh that's right that is right yes so he'll just call people and next you know things happen the most random things will occur from phone calls usually drunk usually so I understand where this is coming from it's like well I've been to Spain recently what am I going to go to South Africa aw shit you what about Venezuela yeah well they're not high high to who the fuck knows who and she's older and they had the banner design or redesign her as a boss and destroy man is back so he is back in several new forums that look like Gordon mcgann and what a fun thing you know with all the dark nasty sad upsetting shit going on and video games I'm happy that suit is out there you know this is in the world an only tim gettys ten doing fantastic October twenty third though wow we're just blowing through October yeah we're I every room it's a different person you know different dimension where he also tweeted that who who keough Kallio I'm sorry if I missed pronounced that known for his work go eighty studio fifty one ceuta deadly premonition creator heated or heated Haka Square is a hero to announce a collaboration together and the most casual and on Broadway imagine org Venezuela's because we want to take this place be you know like we could probably take place at the idea is oh we'll have to scout we can show this but it's really quite everyone loves it so like that is fascinating to me that like these twenty people who don't care about this game at all underplays I loved the idea of the informal livestream event press conference in a bar with people who are not actually involved just kind of sitting there drinking as they were at least drunk which is enough to be like what the fuck of why don't we just fucking go there this sounds like me me and my friend James Burke when we're drunk and it's like dude do you want to go to evidence of their discussion as an aside one time at Gd I just walked into a bar and it was just Ceuta in just get together interviews that I read swearing that ahead of Greg Miller where we're in the middle of podcast he's like you know who I'm just GonNa call whoever the fuck were talking about yeah they don't know they're not exp- have you ever got a phone call from represents a different person or different dimension look at what happened in this period of high man Barcelona because we want to be in Barcelona but you know what it might be in Tokyo and they say he has a new five minute trailer they showed the people at the bar and everyone in the bar cheered but within see onstream so he's like he can play at the publisher devolve or digital to which is offering the pair one million dollar budget to make the game although this is news to devolve devolve tweeted right after that saying this is the first saw this trailer for Noble Heroes Three yes it is there the barges like hey I like the best thing L. But a translator made it clear not to take the final word on anything the pair did place in Evans on timelines though now the game would be about the different rooms of the hotel each part of this he's like sure and that was like that just got him involved in the project while they were sitting there see also there was a translator yeah there was a translator as well offers that is the first they've heard they're going to be like you know what fuck let's do it is the first boring the game in question is an Indie Hora game can codename Hotel Barcelona which Suda fifty one came up with a repeating zone that obviously hotel was going to it okay he ended films it also no more heroes saying we're Suda wanted to talk about number heroes and he mentioned he showed off a new boss which is I forget her name but she was a cake no more heroes chugging I love it it's an amazing thing I wish Suda in swear the best you had said how is a game made by Suda fifty one and Suarez sixty and like todd Howard like all right here elder scrolls six yeah whatever of it also if you're not getting these people seem to really like it there's people just fucking dude shots a PR perspective man that's rupp because when you're in a bad situation these panels the announcements are going to be great the panels themselves and the reactions in the rooms will see because I'm still very worried about that what if and this is just me is to be reactionary right I feel like you need to be able to control the message to be clear and concise about what you're saying because every word is going to be uh-huh over communication can be very bad when it twisted and turned into every which way of how people want to make those arguments I feel like an already kind of tenths bliss con standing in front of a room of people that you can't control their reactions is not going to make that panels are happening I like not knowing exactly what panels happening because to me that means something exciting is happening exciting will fill those those holes and go over well no matter how by the script they read their faces GonNa tell a different story right and I think that that is going to be taken flat it'll fall through the earth probably straight to China but you gotta believe in the hype and I feel like it's going to be what we've been talking about and I think that throwing this out there what if one of these panels is let's talk about blitz chunk let's talk about what happened no way what would you think about that for in the wrong way I mean so I used to be a political reporter before I got into the Games journalism all that stuff there is a thing in politics called the till they drop press conference where you just announcements can get kind of trite people can get upset at them because at some point is just like what are you what are you doing but we know this conventions happening we weird and I felt sick afterward together Tim Ron doing it the only way we know how which is a bit chilly in the blizzard we're having a cold ass time right here blizzard there's a rumor going around that I didn't report last time but D- Diablo two remastered or remade is coming was a way to like make Diablo fans at the door I could feasibly see once you've already lost control of the message trying to regain it that way the problem there is I don't think you too as a panel because like the idea are the reporting so far so the overwatch to as a separate product that what if they continue I think people would like that the thing is this is exciting news to me all the blizzard suck stuff aside I like when things like this are announced announcements he shouldn't he should look into it yeah please Con Twenty Nineteen Tim we're getting back into it I was worried I was worried we're going to talk about we had no blizzard stories yesterday two thousand nine hundred six misery panels were announced as from Aegean by the made up name Joe scrabble's Blizzard has revealed the schedule for Wiscon- Twenty nineteen sticks panels with as yet announce subjects on its main stage on Friday November first the opening ceremony we follow by four back to back panels marked only as coming soon on Saturday November second two more coming soon panels sandwiched between updates for warcraft and overwatch so that's kind of what God because it is a all the there's panels open with coming soon take your best guess what do you think of I mean like we were talking about a couple of days ago right like it's got to be destiny or sorry hold a press conference and let press ask every question that's possibly whatever they could do it doesn't like you worry there is you can be misquoted or you'll say something that I think that them coming out and doing that that's not gonNA help any of these problems it's only gonNa make it worse right and if they are you didn't intend for that meaning to come out but the idea is that it gets the the story out there and gets drained of talking about it and leaves those questions problem with that is you kind of build it up in your head if it's not these things if it's not over watched too if it's a let's talk about Diablo immortal more yeah that is going to fall I think overwatch one for a little while longer this is what we're doing with overwatch one but also here's a panel okay yeah I could see that how many we missed maybe like some fun little Easter eggs there I can't wait to go to the one sixteen dimension yes L. or meet Mr one-room slash dimension I don't know man swear he follows me on twitter I tweeted happy I mean that would make them happy yeah maybe not as a dea before thing but as Diablo three engine like yeah what if we just put all that stuff that'd be that'd be Rad decision that that stance is going to be a stance that they want to do a press conference for right I think they're going to end up citing China as a whole and the Diablo and Pataudi haven't overwatch panel I mean you could say like what's new over water but we we were talking about how at Blues Con Itself Right they are going to have to figure out where the China's I think it's twofold I don't think that there had a place that they know what their stances as a whole and then I also don't think that when they come down to that tough fits into all this where they fit in with all of this and when it comes to the panels and all of the rooms are going to be against them so they can't sucks but we have to do it we have to do if they shocked the room with a brutal honesty they might blunt the protest against it wine where the still not really sure then it's almost just lip service where okay yeah we we know that there's a lot of people at Blizzard that don't believe in the staff right if they were to come out and say no no no you're talking about I think on Monday was it Monday what day is it now Wednesday Wednesday thank God it's Friday China we have employees we have money make I'm sorry that it takes like our operating income requires this much to pay all these people like what are we going to do about it like it's go out there without a clear message and I just don't think Klay message is going to be what the room wants I think the way to shock the room would be like brutally honest about it and this is probably video game industry is changing it's not changing geopolitical alliances necessarily allow for the best human rights things we can function with unfortunately I agree with you. I don't think it's going to happen I think those six panels are going to be what's new Diablo for what's new in warcraft three remastered which they have not talked about for like a year like what this is the thing that every pr person would just like no you cannot do this but did is they went out there jail and brock was like hey the letter was a mistake yeah we worried about our businesses Mitt yeah the letter wasn't a good idea yeah but they they seem to be stuck where they are call of duty modern technology of Wilco fraught are things now let us know what we man I don't know about those guys whatever it's like within those guys eventually going to be like what the fuck eight now did mean this and then it's GonNa be a problem and this goes back to take a Friday yeah well anyways on Monday we were talking about how I just thought that blew my mind rescuer so help me on the risk of what I guess controversy like people Russian news going announced it earlier today the statement in English provided to your Gamer is as follows call of duty modern warfare is a fictional game has been thoughtfully created to entertain fans. I just we've seen it so many times before that you can go out there and be as honest as you want and that's only going to rally the year lying group Yeah I can't believe that there's this anti Russian gain this pro American propaganda of Russians being evil or being the villains which also I Russian controversy on Russian news and of course Russian government news I'm missing video games in geopolitical things like the biggest issue compelling narrative Sony Interactive Entertainment has decided not to sell modern warfare on the playstation store in Russia at this time we look forward to lachey modern warfare digitally in Russia on twenty three from what I what I've seen in modern warfare the fact that Russians are the villains always gotta like struck me as trying to make us that we don't have to put Americans polishing political issues call duty modern warfare won't be sold a place to store in Russia GIPSA's from Valentine Sony has decided not excel called is the way it has to work I people would still be mad people and that's the bigger problem is it's like I just feel being being honest is the right thing to do yeah no to be larger and once they were lying straight up lied in that letter yeah so the only way I see too blunt a little bit is to at some point like at point it's yeah blizzards doing wrong but they're explaining their reasoning for it and hey diablo four hey overwatch to maybe I'd Russian like Russia as a country in this game we can't do this they're still doing an xbox but Sony is the one thing we don't want to take the be another incentive for Sony somewhere that we're not seeing like is this some activision China's stuff where it's like Sony is doing this because they're homeys with Russian situation there's I saw a thing I think it was Washington Post posted a thing about how apple tries to avoid criticizing Russia in Apple TV shows the modern warfare digitally is placed in the store and Russia the game will still be available on other platforms in the country euro gamer manager confirmed the news effort with call of duty Russia's official account title Eastern Country of Stan preview events depicted several encounters Russian soldiers including one where a soldier murders young girls father in C- in turn kills a soldier just seems still bizarre because the xbox is still going to be there yeah right so it's not like it's going to be that big an issue that it seems like there must that seems backwards to me because ipads are a business tool playstations are told does Russia by so many ipads I wonder if there's a thing of hey we're about to launch a PS five we don't want that association will be fine with the game sales it has decided not to sell modern warfare sorry not to sell modern warfare on a place in Russia at this time the statement reads we apologize for the inconvenience activision are those things that are going to like folks from a product perspective but it would be interesting if they just went up there until may culpa who is it that are buying playstations gamers right right or are you going to piss off but having the option to buy this game eight minutes with as mentioned that the game is fictional may indicate the reason behind somebody's reluctance modern warfare story campaign centers run a rebel force battling Russian occupation in the fictional L. ended a Middle Eastern war story But I think they Sony wants to avoid the idea of the PS four logo being next to givers it just seems a little bit backwards to me where it's not like a company's going to be like Oh man we were GonNa buy a thou- giving themselves have been fairly quiet about his campaign like spoilers were out now because the game is leaked but I've not they've not said that much about what this campaign is Japan was cooler 'cause they got games early import stuff the backward magazine and that's it out Stralia like was weird about like October twenty fifth via bound and our console via xbox in a statement against DOT Biz. Sony confirmed the decision provided no other details Sony interactive so I think it's interesting that Sony is the one doing this and activision going yeah we can't put this thing in Russia we went way too hot sucked Hobart twenty-fifth at Games out man games October twenty fifth tim is so far less so far away why is funny so he's just a Tetris yeah screen I've always with the blocks falling I've always assumed his ear to licence the music and the name then mechanics tetris because I I don't but it theoretically what if they're digitization where the Putin government goes actually we're not going to allow sale patient force in Russia yeah like because of this nice that's an eloquent it does seem panicked of they don't really know what to do so they're like Oh God the week before we're going to just stop this because southern about this just seems to me other situations like this that gained comes this Friday have you realized that whoa whites yeah emery two games like that was kind of just like Oh guys that's weird Internet made the world smaller and we all became very aware of these things totally but this this is not to me because wave I wanted to know what's coming to the drops today where would I look the official list of upcoming software across each and every platform listed by the kind of funny games daily show host each and every weekday I don't know I think it's interesting they do it so soon ahead of like this game's release it seems a little fast you know it seems playstation you ain't from Russia so I you Russian like losing other than the game sales if the are Russia starts buying more PS FIS because I assume he does pretty well there but game because Sony allowed this game to happen and they're just easiest target and doesn't care like well whatever will will take the risk we're roll the dice see what happens Z. Norman's night in out on dungeon explorer is out on PC house of a thousand doors Cohen the Palm Zora astor I think it was their GDP panel for tetris effect. They're saying yeah getting his license is actually super fucking difficult like they have so many roles so maybe it just to a different block so kind of like like hits in different ways I could see it like if you wanted to make tetris move set like that's the kind of imagined ah I kind of wondered if they because they fear the reaction to it or trying to avoid spoilers who knows it's really weird I want to see if there's updates to this because hatteras staff so I guess this is fine out of all games I'd feel like Nintendo can figure out the tetris licensing especially with tetris ninety nine or an investment that people like home entertainment right they're kind of trying to blur the lines a little bit like you call assisted places before pro like you're trying to out on pc new dates I put this one four you've Tim did there's five tetris spirits coming to smash brothers on October Twenty Oh my God that's ten a Papa Papa Papa out today course party to dead patient is out on dressers is out on in playstation four's but we're not gonNA anymore whereas that would be the case with ipads this could be a similar China I'm not a Russia expert by any means wheel of the day Tom Clancy's the division two is nine hundred ninety nine game stops deal of the day it's a free shipping is included if you're looking for some fun division time but we also have some reader mail we will get in one second tim why don't you tell us who supporting kind of Funny Games daily today this episode is brought to you by third love nearly all yeah I don't mean to win a bad way but it's not something I had used it for work playstations aren't used for work unless you worked in video games right so aims now to find your perfect Bra and get fifteen percent off your first purchase that's T.

The Latest Push Toward Statehood For Washington, D.C.

"This is one A. M. Sasha an Simon's. If you come to DC, you'll notice. There's an interesting slogan on the license plates. It reads taxation without representation and its a cheeky reference to the fact that DC residents pay federal taxes, but don't have a vote in Congress. That's just one of the reasons. Some have called for DC statehood. The debate over statehood has played out over decades last Friday. The House passed a bill granting DC full states rights. It's the first time a bill like this has ever passed in Congress, but this doesn't mean the DC is suddenly a state, even though some people would really like to be hi, my name's Cya Hi. My name is Janet. I'm calling. Calling from Kansas City, Missouri, I believe the VC deserve statehood as well as Porsche, Rico and the other us, territories I thought for years that it's ridiculous. They cannot vote. They have no vote the US citizens, but they don't have any ability to participate in an election. Save perhaps DC. I'm not quite familiar with that day should be able to vote like everybody else if they're American citizens and their effectively being denied their right to participate fully in our democracy and I think that that's really just quite tragic. Thank you. Joe CYA and Janet for leaving US those messages we'll talk about the complicated and racist history of why has never been granted statehood and what the State of new? Would even look like joining us is our own Rachel courteous, senior editor for deceased here at W. Amu Rachel welcome to say. Thanks so much for having me also is with us. As George Derek Musk Grove, he's a professor of American history at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and Co author of chocolate city history of race and democracy in the nation's capital George Welcome. Thank you for having me Rachel I'll start with you. Tell us what is DC, not being a state actually mean in. And what things are DC residents barred from doing? That's a great question, and I'm so delighted to be able to speak with people from all over the country about why this is because you might think that because Congress meets in DC. The residents have say over what happens in Congress. That's largely not true. Because DC doesn't have a full voting representative in the house, and it has no one in the Senate, so that means any big decision that's happening in. Congress is happening without any input from people who live in DC. And so in addition to that, in addition to not being able to for instance have any say in who goes to the Supreme Court nominations past there. We also see that there are a lot of. Congress people who aren't elected by who decide to meddle in DC affairs, so let me give you a couple of examples of that. We've got for instance. In two thousand fourteen DC residents voted in a local election to make recreational marijuana legal, but because Congress continues to meddle in our affairs, we can't have dispensaries. Even though all of the citizens, the mayor and other elected officials have wanted it to be so, and that's the case with a lot of are locally raised funds. We can't use them to fund reproductive care like abortion and more recently. We've seen two huge compelling arguments. Advocates have used for for why should be a state back in the spring. DC was screwed out of hundreds. Hundreds of millions of dollars in federal relief for cove it because it wasn't treated as a state, whereas normally it is in terms of taxes, and we also saw that president trump was able to deploy federal law enforcement and troops on the streets in DC in early June despite the fact that that local officials and residents were were largely opposed to that right, so those are just some of the ways in which DC not being estate means. It gets pushed around a lot by people who really aren't accountable to the citizens who live here and incident. You bring up in June Rachel. You know people were shocked that Mayor Mira. Bowser had no control over the national guard because she's not. Technically a governor, so they have to answer to the president George I want to bring you into the conversation. I also want to take a step back. How did we get here? What's the history behind? WHY DC ISN'T ESTATE? Grimness. It's quite complicated, but give it all to us in one minute now, kidding. quickly. The, easiest thing to say is The framers wanted the federal district to be outside of the control of a single state. And so they wrote it into the Constitution. Section One I'm sorry. Article One section eight that the Congress of exclusive jurisdiction over the Federal District. But. At that point, they're really not saying anything about whether or not. These people voting Congress or anything like that. They're just saying that they want control over their federal district, which should not exceed ten miles square, so it could be shrunken down. It was when when Alexandria was retroceded back to Virginia in eighteen forty six. And so district residents have fought for two different things over the course of the last two hundred and twenty years. One is just home rule to have a local government city council and a mayor. They could just run local affairs. The other is some type of representation in Congress, either through a constitutional amendment. Through retrocession back to Maryland for the part of it on this side of the Potomac or statehood. And probably the youngest of all those struggles is a struggle for statehood, which really picks up. After about nineteen sixty nine and becomes dominant strategy for gaining voting Congress among DC, residents about nineteen eighty win. City residents passed a referendum. Saying that statehood is their chosen strategy. It's how they WANNA to get representation in Congress and support for statehood is only built among both DC residents and members the Democratic Caucus since nineteen eighty at the same time it has. Receded almost zero among national, Republicans, and that's really been the difficulty DC residents have faced in trying to get something through Congress since one thousand nine hundred. George we got a couple of texts from from folks who were saying things along this line here. One Listener said I was born and raised and spent the first forty years of my life in DC I still consider at my home. It's a tragedy that the citizens of the district are taxed at a rate by the federal government higher than virtually any place else in the country. Country and have never had voting representation. It's hard to believe that there is any reason for that other than DC's population being majority black for much of its existence. Here's another listener Texas that there should be no taxation without representation, being mostly a black city that leaves them being disadvantaged at a much higher rate. They have no say over anything in the city. This is not right. George DC has had a large black population for a very long time, so tell us how race has played into the decision to not grant statehood. Sure so DC has had a twenty percent black population at its lowest in its history, and its had a seventy three percent black population that its highest in its history, and that was around one, thousand, nine, hundred seventy. And initially. The black population didn't really matter in conversations representation in Congress because African Americans couldn't vote. In fact, they weren't citizens. As far as most white Americans were concerned. And race played a huge role in DC I losing any type of Pardon me the district losing any type of local government. That was in the eighteen seventies with the end of reconstruction. Members of Congress and local white elites conspired to strip the city of any vote at all. And it remained that way for the next hundred years, and if you look at the arguments against the return of either home, rule or representation in Congress during that hundred year period, the basic argument from national leaders, as well as local white leaders in the business community in elites more generally is. If we bring that back the vote, black people will have access to the Franchisee. They'll dominate the city, and this is even when African. Americans are only thirty percent of the population around the turn of the century. After nineteen, fifty seven when DC gets black majority. SEGREGATIONISTS in Congress are dead set against any type of vote in the city home, rule or representation in Congress, and so you have people like Senator Byrd from West Virginia. Who just flat out is opposed to any type of franchise in DC one because he's, he could be pretty racist at that point in his political career, but also because he was using jobs in DC as a works program for unemployed people in West Virginia so if you lost your job in the mind, come work in DC is a police officer and he literally have. People, working on hiring offices in his district offices in West Virginia. Since though Republican, Party has really just focused on maintaining advantage in Congress. And so they have been dead set against increasing what we're guaranteed to be to guaranteed Democratic seats. From DC in the Senate one more in the house, and they used to whisper it in back rooms, and so Pat Buchanan even said in nineteen, seventy, nine at a conference of Conservative activists look, we can't say this out. Loud. DC residents have a raw deal. But. We absolutely can't let them get. Two seats in the Senate because that will disadvantage us. But, he said that behind closed doors. Fast forward to two thousand sixteen in John Casick said that openly and president trump has tweeted a bunch of times since. We're talking with George Derek. Muster a professor of history at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and Rachel Kersey, a senior editor, senior editor of deceased at W. Amu, Rachel, why should someone in California or Montana care about DC statehood? Tell us what the debate playing out here in the nation's capital means for the rest of the country. That really depends on who that person is because even within DC. We're seeing a difference of strategy emerging in how people want to. Show or express DC should be a state, and so among really local activists. What they're saying is this is plain unfair. It's ridiculous the idea that living in DC being born in DC or choosing to move here and and yes, a lot of people are born in DC, and there are seven hundred six thousand residents currently. that. It's not fair that they shouldn't have any representation in Congress and that there are are really negative consequences of that lack of representation, and so that argument tries to appeal to people's morals to people's ethics. That's okay. As you can see a DC hasn't become a state yet and part of it is because a lot of people don't know about about DC's kind of peculiar limbo when it comes to representation, but what we saw particularly after twenty sixteen and I just want to set the scene for you really quickly about this because twenty sixteen was. In DC an election in which people were very excited, because that's when they voted overwhelmingly that they wanted to become a state, and they also voted overwhelmingly ninety four percent for Hillary. Clinton, who said full-throatedly that she wanted to support DC statehood instead Donald Trump won that election and we saw suddenly a lot of national activists, a lot of national progressive activists, saying the DC statehood was one of the ways that. That they could work on what they saw. As an imbalance in the Senate the idea for instance that rural areas are represented so much more than than urban areas, just structurally in the Senate, and that having DC a state would would help with that, and so there's a little bit of tension there between people saying you know, it doesn't matter if DC would vote in Republicans or Democrats or independents, we just. Just want them to be able to vote versus people saying look if you're progressive. If you're liberal, there's strategy in trying to make sure that folks are franchise. Because ultimately it will help you I mean think about some of those really close votes in the Senate for instance when John McCain very dramatically said like no, we're not going to end the affordable care act. If DC had senators, it never would have. Have come to that point in the first place, and so that's the argument that you're certainly hearing from progressive activists across the country, trying to rally people in support of statehood, but certainly as their rallying progressives and liberals. It's very off putting to to Republicans on that same token now Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton opposes statehood. Here's what he said about the effort last Thursday the founders created Washington is a federal city. So that the operations of government would be safe and free from domination by the states around it. Wisdom of this decision was on display just days ago, when violent riots erupted near the White House setting fire to historic church. It most. Washington was under the control of the federal government. But are they left wing politician like? Her who frequently takes a side of rioters against law enforcement? Would you trust Mayor Bowser to keep Washington say if she were given powers of the governor last month, trump also told the New York Post that Republicans would be very very stupid. Unquote to let a majority democratic city like DC become a state real. Quick Rachel, let us know how much of this debate is about politics. Well DC residents. It's about far more than politics, but certainly when you're looking at how Republicans have opposed DC statehood for so long. It's very clear that they're that. They're counting the votes there when I watched the. Hearing about the bill that ultimately passed last Friday in the house. Many Republicans were saying for instance. DC is to corrupt or An which is silly if you think about it I, mean you know how many Illinois Governors have gone to jail, but Still has two senators, even though a governor literally tried to sell one of those Senate seats. And so a lot of these these questions. There's also this question of constitutionality. You know the fact that we're. The federal government works is not allowed to be a state. Will under this bill the federal government the Capitol, the US Capitol, the monuments would continue to be federal property. It's just that all of the places where people live would then be represented by. Two senators in a member of a full voting member of Congress, so it is very much about politics because. As President Trump said the quiet part loud, he said. Republicans would have to be stupid to let this happen because it would mean more Democrats in. Congress and we got just about a minute to go here, George. There's been as we said this. Push for DC statehood for decades. Why has statehood not happened yet and Intel? Is this moment in the statehood debate different? Yes. Absolutely is I think would Rachel pointed out a moment ago. Is that the big difference this time around and said Democrats are moving almost in lockstep toward the statehood 'cause if you look at the last time, statehood came up for a vote in Congress. It was one thousand, nine, hundred three it only got about one hundred fifty three votes now. Only one Republican voted for that bill that means that forty percent of Democrats voted against that Bill. And they had all types of reasons big in one another small state etc.. In Two thousand twenty when it goes before the house. All Republicans oppose it in only one Democrat opposes the bill, so that means that the Democratic Party has shifted. Entirely into the statehood camp, including people like Steny Hoyer who oppose it in the past and supports it now. And so this is definitely a different moment. but Democrats will have to win the Senate and the presidency for it to get through. After November when listener texted DC statehood is an interesting proposition, but it's not like anyone is forced to live in DC. Another member of the one eight texts up said DC is a special population. It is not equivalent to a state by any conventional criteria. This whole issue was a political power play to get to Democratic senators and one democratic representative if the voters must have representation than revert the area back to Maryland. We're talking with Rachel courteous, senior editor for DC US at W. Amu. George Derek Musk Grove. The CO author of chocolate city, a history of race and democracy in the nation's capital.

Now let's bring into new voices to the conversation on DC. Statehood Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton is DC's representative congresswoman welcome. Thank you with you and David Schleicher is professor of law at Yale. University, and author of the essay welcomed a new Columbia, the fiscal economic and political consequences of statehood for DC David Welcome. Thank you so much for having congresswoman. Your position as DC's representative is interesting, given DC status. What do you do as representative and tell us what power? If you can't vote in Congress well. It's interesting that actually I have every other single power. Except that final vote on the House floor and let me tell you what that means. I can share a subcommittee I do share one neck and share full committee I vote in committee. do everything that every representative ties, but when it comes time to cast that final vote, including boats that affect only the district of Columbia every member of the House of Representatives can vote except the member who has been elected by the residents of the District of Columbia. So, what does it feel like to never be able to vote on final passage for one of your bills? Well, frankly I've never felt disempowered and the Congress because I walked in the door, saying. Saying I'M GONNA? I'm going to act like every other member of Congress and demand to be treated like every other member of Congress I have it? It's not me. The problem is with the people I represent I. Get all the respect I need in Congress, but they get no respect when that final vote comes, and everybody can cast a vote except the member who represents them now DC. Statehood has been central to your platform for decades. Can you tell us what's important to you? It's important to me and personally and as a member personally because I'm a third generation Washingtonian. My great grandfather was a runaway slave. He got here to freedom, but Nobody in the homes family has made it to equality. Far beyond that, though it's important to me because I represent. Americans who pay the highest federal taxes per capita? And have no vote in the House of Representatives. that's an amazing notion when you think about it, because highest per capita means more than in the largest states and the richest states like New York in California, and did we pay more federal taxes. than twenty two states. That's what we contribute to the United States of America without having. A vote If you look at the district and people will say well, you know that's just a city well as larger than two states. my Wyoming and Vermont. And and they say well the. Certainly, it's not. It's not in fiscal terms equal. Where we have a budget of almost sixteen billion, that's larger than the budget of fourteen states. And, if you WANNA look at whether or not, we are ready to be a state as I. We have been since the nation was created, but Some dollars and cents for you. TRUMP AAA bond rating. Is better than that of thirty five states. Cool can count themselves well. Let's bring. Let's bring in David Schleicher professor of law at Yale University David. What do you think are the potential problems with DC statehood? Show the case for DC state, who always been very focused on Congress and the effect of the statehood will have and providing representation in Congress, but for residents, the biggest effect would not be in having representation in Congress, but rather in changing the form of their own government. Deceased estate would be quite unique. It'd be the only state that is entirely in one metropolitan area, and it would even beyond that just be the city and not have control over tone, suburbs or any of its suburbs. This would be unique among the state. This is a pretty big affects on it. It is a fiscal entity taxing and spending its economy and on its politics. I think is good idea. All things told that proponents need to think really hard about how to sheep independent. Shaped. Sheep Steve Hood in order to address these problems. What do you say to that congresswoman? I've heard of augments against statehood, but I'M GONNA say. To the professor, that's unique. It is true. That this would be a unique state. it wouldn't be like every other state. It wouldn't have what he calls a metropolitan area or suburbs. But that has nothing to do with statehood. Statehood ought to be about whether in every single respect. With respect to the other states. You are entitled to statehood. Now if you if you WANNA look and and and see. About about suburbs, we have suburbs here. And they in fact. vote or treating in many ways as a metropolitan area. That's what would happen if we became a state. So this the if we get hung up on something as trivial as a state has to look like this has to have these things than we have lost sight of the constitution and of the latitude that the framers gave us to form states. We got this voice mail from a listener about why they think DC shouldn't be a state. Here's Bob from Lancaster. Washington DC an obvious, they call ours. The constitution forbids. The desired, have Washington. DC is a state. It's just a powered. By Democrat. Thank you both for leaving us that voicemail. David as Bob Right would making DC state the unconstitutional. No. Alice from conservatives like Viet Dinh to the ACS liberal like liberal organizational. You, have gone through the tissue extensively and the legal argument against statehood are silly on the. There'd be a small problem created by the fact that the twenty-third amendment allocates electoral votes to. Strict and the district would then be shrunk to a very small area by statehood, which would leave three electoral votes in the hands of a very small number of people, but other than that the arguments about that Maryland need sign off because the land was given to from Maryland to to create the district. People think have very little merit on, and so there's no real constitutional problem. The question is about advisability much more than it is about the law. David your response to an email here. From Stephen DC the state would be the only fully urban jurisdiction Congress residents of cities around the country, even mid size and small cities would gain new ally in expressing their concerns on a wide range of issues. This will be especially valuable for urban residents of Republican. States like Louisville Kentucky Tulsa Oklahoma Phoenix Arizona, Houston, Texas and so on. So I think. It'd be very salutary for Congress. The big question I have and I think there's only could be dealt with Steve Constitution is. The fact that would be A. Uniquely shock prone as state, and it would not have the federal government standing behind it the way that it did you win defaced its fiscal crisis in the Mid Ninety S. The city the would if there was a decline in demand for urban property or the federal government shrunk by a certain percentage, just because of politics, or whatever you could see a really major fiscal shock to a city that couldn't balance against having control having being able to tax the suburbs. Or couldn't balance again. Another metro city in it state and so i. think that those are the questions of downtown. Four to the effect Congress would be quite good on that. It is in fact, the case that the US Senate particularly is biased towards rural areas the house to some degree. and that statehood would would help push against that. Congresswoman. You heard the voicemail that we played a moment ago from Bob. He said that DC statehood is a power grab by Democrats. What's your response to that? I think that that's the fear. And I can understand that fear, because most big cities are democratic, and that that indeed has is what is on the mind of a Republicans and then the country has to ask itself. is admission to the union dependent upon. the. Politics of those who seek admission, and if your answer is yes, then you don't. You. Don't want any state admitted until you do a poll and see how they would vote, so we recognize that that is a challenge to us. We're prepared to meet that challenge I met me. Give you an example of how we're going to meet it. we look at the election coming up where you see. The president opposes statehood in the Senate opposed to statehood, and then we look at what the polls are showing recognizing fully that polls can change. But. They are so overwhelming. That? We are heartened by the fact. That It looks like Democrats take the Senate. And, it almost surely looks like we will have a new president of the United States so those who look at a moment in time to try to figure what will happen with a specific bill need to read their history. Well. Let's take a quick break, but we'll talk more about DC statehood with our guests right after this, this is one A.. I'm Gregory Warner with NPR's rough translation, so there's a holiday in the Netherlands where every year thousands of white folks where black face some people are trying to end that tradition, but in a very Dutch way you talk, you talk you talk you talk you talk until you reach consensus. Can you fight racism in a way that brings the whole country with you. That's on NPR's rough translation. Hi. This is Greg from Pennsylvania. It makes no sense to add another tiny state Washington DC isn't even a big city, if anything make it part of Maryland, or Virginia not a state of its own. Thanks Greg Congresswoman. You hear this a lot. How do you respond to it? Actually? I don't hear it a lot and the reason i. don't hear it. A lot is because there are two states that are smaller or would be smaller if the district became a state Vermont in Wyoming, right? We've never looked to see what your size was to see whether or not, you should be admitted to the union people that need to focus on what DC would and It is a very thriving city. We have so many people We have no place to go, and indeed you know you can't build above a certain. level in DC, which makes it expensive to live here? talking about being able to support ourselves that of course means that the district must tax people because it can make up for by expanding, so the district recognize then still people come. Because it is a place to live that people find desirable. One listener texted taxation without representation was a major reason for the revolution and founding of this country. It's asinine that DC doesn't have representation in the legislature David. What would DC actually. Look like as a state. What some of the features be! Well I mean to begin to be quite unique as a state. You'll be only state without local governments internal to it. It would be. It's just the city again. This would be a small, not the smallest as the congresswoman note. But it would be a quite a small state on. The, the one of the big things that would be attractive about statehood I think is that it would give. Greater capacity to. Engage in kind of remove the limitations created by the Home Rule Act. That were quite odd and bad, and the country mentioned one of them which is the enshrinement of the height of Buildings Act which stops DC from. Removed from DC the ability to approve taller buildings, and as a result office space in DC is extraordinarily expensive and residents are extraordinarily expensive because. Full rights to allow construction further statehood would give DC the power to tax out of St residents who work in the city, and this has always been one of the major opposition. Politicians from Maryland and Virginia have had to DC statehood on the. That power would be granted. DC would also lose some things though DC got a bunch of special benefits in a particularly in the nineties during it's part of the bill out of city government that on the would, and so DC would get and lose from statehood as kind of as a governing in today. And we are almost out of time, but congressman and I want to read this tweet to you and give you just about thirty seconds or so respond. They said please ask about the way. The feds hold the DC budget hostage year after year forcing DC to issue bonds to cover its own money. I would appreciate you expanding on this economic interrelation. What the what she's referring to is that our budget raised here entirely in the district of Columbia has to be signed off by the Congress of the United States absurd, because they don't put a dime. In that budget, and this is the kind of nominally that we've been trying to get rid of through. Through just getting full home home rule so the the the they're probably benefits, the country to mention to the district If we were to be a state, it is important for me to say one important thing, and that is one of your listeners talked about Maryland and Virginia and that they could be taxed. Please note that all four senators. From our two adjoining states, Maryland and Virginia our sponsors of the DC statehood bill. They know they could pay face some possible taxation that is always negotiated with the with the entity involved. A minute to go David. You think that proponents of statehood have been far too focused on Congress so tell us what should they be focused on instead if the actually want to make this happen? These should be focused on making DC as estate work, and I think that this would require a state constitution that was designed to solve the particular problems of DC is a state, and so I think they need to include in their state that were they ought to considering concluding in their state constitution rules governing kind of a mandatory contributions to a rainy day fund that are stricter than most places given the this the the new state's capacity for kind of booms and busts, and they should focus on or the consider adding to their electoral rules. Things designed to create internal electoral competition so that. Local officials face kind of partisan competition inside the city is not come from national political parties, but from some degree that would create some degree of Internal Competition David.

I actually copied it from the Loof their dreams were dashed when the financial crisis brought construction to a screeching halt, ten years later, their personal palace is still not finished. But that setback is nothing compared to the heartache they've faced since we're at our resort in Park City Utah. And we got the call no Param ever wants to get a call like that. She breathing. And I started freaking out is a call nine one one and screaming on the phone, but she had already been dead for if a few hours all the money in the world. Can't bring my daughter back. Their beloved oldest daughter, Victoria, dead from an overdose of methadone antidepressants in two thousand fifteen. She was just eighteen years old felt like a dark cloud came over our family now they're finally able to share with the world all they've lost. Do you know how old she was here? I think she was sixteen beautiful is the very sweet girl. She a lot the live for. She was a typical teenager, lovable one minute and not so lovable the next classic teenagers, artistic she was talented. Fisher view, Miss America. Victoria in the Queen of her side, Victoria is seen as an awkward camera shy middle schooler. Thanks. My name's trae seal. But at least we call tricky, and I'm twelve years old. So after Queen of recyc- came out, the bullying, she reported was withering the bullying was very difficult on her it, I have a feeling that. That's why she started experimenting with drugs to say. Hey, I'm just like you her parents describe, Victoria. It's a free spirited hippie living in gleaming mansion trying to fit in that was kind of the beginning of the end for Doria. Why that movie embarrassed her? She was kind of on the chubby side at the time kids make fun of her. Only because it came from family of wealth, you know, and she got teased about it. And she started going on crash diets we never thought in a million years that she would be doing drugs. They're naievety Mirroring, so many parents oblivious to the grips of the opioid epidemic that claimed more than seventy thousand lives in 2017 alone. I thought a drug addicts lived under bridges and slept on park benches. I had no idea that the more fluent family is more chance you have having a drug user in your family. Victoria's diary in death revealing a secret life her parents never knew their decision to publish it prompted by Victoria herself in the throes of her addiction. The teen wants texted a friend asked him to tell her mother the location of her diary, only if she died. Okay. So this is her text. I've never shown anyone my journal. But there's no one else. I would. Rather pass it on to than you. My business is now everyone else's business. This is hard for me. And I'm okay with that. Mom. Maybe you can published my teenage journal. Sorry. No, I'm sorry. May sir. I'm sure you must have so more. They granted her dying wish publishing her diary Victoria's voice and starting the Victoria Segal foundation. I am on a mission the day after my daughter's funeral I went to my executives, and I said from now on you're running the company I'm going to concentrate on what I can do about this drug epidemic. I would die if I lost. When you read through her diary, what questions did it answer. I feel like I know my daughter more now. Well, she's dead rather than when she was alive. Her diary with its elaborate drawings a blueprint for a teenager struggle with adolescent angst Victoria, wrote often about feeling inadequate and struggling with body image. She was starving herself was involved in business. I can spend time to get the nowhere. Even better. Find out what was bothering her. Her journal also a dark chronicle of a descent into addiction tracking her experimentation with a plethora of substances and pills pills pills. Pills blow went through your mind. When you saw this just pills pills pills pills? Yeah. She took out a role and tried cocaine and things like that. And she take the pills to come down. And she looks like she was obsessed with the pills. What was your reaction when you read this shocked, if I'd known what I know now back then she'd like I said she'd still be alive. What were the signs that you may have missed along the way there's plenty of signs. She says she's tired, and she's just going to go to take a nap in her room. We didn't know that. She was in there doing drugs a little more than a month before she died, Victoria confessed to her parents. She had a problem with Xanax and spent a week and rehab, but it didn't stick. How? Do you respond? When you hear some of that criticism of fewer too wrapped up in yourself. He were too wrapped up in this house. You were too wrapped up in other things those people that are criticizing me aren't the people that have lost children. They have no idea. How hard it is. While the family says they're unhappy with the documentary. They don't regret the platform. It's given them to spread a message against opioids. I could use that as leverage to get the word out there. David Segal says he stepped away from his timeshare empire. West gate resorts to focus on the fight against opioids raising millions of dollars. Let's do something. Now just last week. The proud Trump supporters front and center at a town hall along with the first lady. We see it every single day many overdoses. Eagles have helped bring funding nationwide for one of the most powerful weapons against overdoses Narcan. So very simple precedent and the nostrils of the person who's overdosing their hometowns sheriff John Mina says it's already saving lives this year are overdose deaths or are starting to decline, and we believe part of that is, you know, through the deployment of of Narcan to our deputies. I believe that my daughter's legacy is going to be that as a result of her death thousands or hundreds of thousands of people are gonna live in this begun. This is one of our pools. How many do you have? We have six pools. Okay. While it's just a quick dry from the private island where they live now that ninety thousand square foot dream mention is still a work in progress to ever wish you'd never even embarked on it. No, no. I'm actually. Looking forward to the house that's been under construction so long that it's not only under construction. It's under renovation. We're tearing things down in certain rooms and starting over. Starting over but not lending Victoria's memory died, hoping they can prevent another parent from this kind of pain.

Commit to Being Productive TODAY!

"Hey, good morning. Everybody at six AM morning coffee was Chande. Today, I'm going to be a fully transparent because I think sometimes as I'm readjusting, my shirt, hijack Wendy McKenna. How are you? So soon as we put more pressure on ourselves to produce to succeed than we really need to. So for instance. You know, the smarten I'm wearing a baseball cap earrings shirt. And I'm actually wearing my pajamas on the bottom of my feet are on the bottom of my legs. And here's one sharing that with you is because I've got a content day today. We are going to spend the entire day cutting content with our video team and our SEO team in all of that Malaysia will be cutting content to help people succeed in the content will last about a month and a half after me doing basically a full five hour day of creating content. So the reason why this is relevant is sometimes you push yourself to produce or to succeed at a default where it actually takes too much out of your life. So the reasonable. I'm not sitting in a position where where I'm like, my hair is done perfectly. Or, you know, my makeup's done perfectly not wearing anything on my skin is because it got the. Production team coming at seventy. I'm this morning to do me up. So that we could now cut video. So if you're just joining what I was just sharing with you is sometimes we'll push ourselves to produce on a level perfection or a level of getting it right to the point that it starts to make us miserable. Right. So I could have gotten up this morning. I code down my hair, I could have done that make up a could've gotten already. So that I could be unhappy with Chande, which is obviously important to me because I do it every morning Monday to Friday at six AM Pacific standard type. But the shift is is that if you start thinking where can I allow things to bleed you're going to start to unhook yourself from perfectionism which causes which causes procrastination? So whenever were procrastinating. It's because we've got some level of trying to get it right or I don't know enough yet. So maybe I study and get a right? And that will cause us to actually sit. Back into perfectionism, which the only reason why we're we're being we're being perfect because we don't know enough yet. We're fearful that we might get something wrong. And so we hold back on producing a result that we want. So this morning. I'm literally heritable Aboni. Jill, you know, wearing my pajamas because actually left my bedroom this morning, and my son is sleeping with my husband. And I didn't want to go back in and wake them up because that sacrifice would have been on too high. So look at what you're looking at today. Look at whatever you're trying to produce today and ask yourself, how can you cut a fat in areas? And the fact is the things that you don't necessarily need to have on your gender to complete today. I'm not saying by any means were deuce your level of. Like, I want you to be a pro I want you to put in the time. And like if you've got a event coming up, I want you put in the time in practice doing your offer. I wanted to be, but I don't want you to says over your content right here. Let me share with you what I mean by that when we're producing resolve. And it means something to us. We can set herself up to fail by becoming way too intense because we want the results so bad that becomes all about us when we're focused on us stress levels rise. Because now we're depending on ourselves to show up at a certain way to get a certain result that we cannot control that result. All we can do is control Hauer showing up today to be able to get the result that we want. So for instance, if you're going to speak at an event, I would rather you put attention on really focusing on practicing your offer because that's the place that you're going to go sideways, and even if you're free. To speak your freight to speak. All you have to do is put a lot of attention on your opening story and your offer not the content in the middle the content in the middle of you, don't if you choose something that is not a stretch for you. In other words, choose to teach something speak about something gives something provide service on something that you already have mastered. Do not choose to speak about something produced something or make an offer on something or service, something that you're still learning because that will cause undue stress. So I'm a big fan on reducing the stress is far as getting the momentum and production inside of your company to get the results that you want. So let's recap for a second. If you wanna be if you wanna be wildly at per productive today cut the fat where can you get rid of something that's causing you more stress than you need to stress about so doing getting. Up and doing my hair, and I make up for coffee was shattered. This morning was more than I wanted to put on my play. So that I could actually just said and go through my notes of what I'm actually going to be producing today in my content show. I had already produced the topic of what I wanted to talk about today because this whole week is on productivity. How do you mend your mind? How do you manage your limiting beliefs, and how do you get free from your limiting beliefs? So that you can produce a result. Well today, it's about when you go through your day cut. The that hit the fat get rid of the things on your to do list today that are causing you extra stress that maybe you're doing to just look good or you're doing to become hyper controlling and get a certain result. Get off you and focus out get off you and focus out. You know, a bunch of our entrepreneurs just did just did a challenge called Uber. Versus you or just the it's slur actually trained them for ninety days. It's okay. If you don't know who he is. He wrote the book living with the seal, he's an amazing, man. And you took her entrepreneurs to the edge. And the there at like, what was their of competing physically that would start to mentally they'll have they'd have to start to mentally tap into to be able to create a result. Everything is mental every I give the same formula to the same group of people some people get mad because they're not getting enough some people are succeeding wildly. And some people are creating six figures in like four or five months, right? Why why are there different results in the same tribe of people consuming? The same information the mental game. It's always the mental game. How do you show up when things start to when pressure starts to build? That's the key to unhook your productivity if you show up his stop backed angry blaming or shutdown. Where you shut down and just give up or you get really add motivated and you sleep. Then what's going to happen? Is that your gateway to higher productivity? That's your gateway to be able to create a resolve that is unheard of that you've ever created before. So the way that I start to do that is first reduced the rush by cutting the fat. So don't do my hair where a hat on coffee was Chande. So that I can be with the video production team in the makeup and the hairstyles and all those in the everything at seven am this morning and be in a position where they can just do their magic on me versus me getting up in the morning to just be perfect for you on six and populist, John that I would rather make sure my content for you and coffee was Chande is useful versus me having to look a certain way to produce that result. So we're can you cut the fat where are you obsessing or putting too many things on? You're play to be able to create a result that you want to create that's causing you to actually go backwards. Right. If you don't have the energy to succeed. You don't have the energy to go the long haul endurance than what's going to happen is that you're going to cut corners on how you show up vibrantly. So everything comes down to your tone, your energy, and how your ways of being actually show up. And so when you've got too much stress on you, then what's going to happen? That's going to start chipping away at your personality and your character soon as your character starts to go. Your offer sought you show up. Either concern tired taking all all type of taking energy. So if you've ever been in position where you may be had a fight with somebody or something horrible happened in your day at work. And then you go to a party, and you walk in the party your leg. People. Like, are you? Hey, it's okay with you. You haven't learnt the art of shifting your character to get in the present moment, which is where your powers that. That is a taking energy. Look, people are always having to come up to you and go are you? Okay. Now, Joe don't put a story on this. There are moments where you need to be cuddled loved heard listen to. I mean, come on. We all do. I mean, I'm not talking about a horrific moment in your life that you need support on. I'm talking about how he's showing up today. So that you can create the result that you want so cut the fat. I looked for everywhere to cut the fat. So what am I doing today that is actually costing me productivity because I'm throwing spaghetti up against the wall. Hoping that I'm going to get better result. Or it's the sometimes working harder. Does it get you? A better result. It actually unless you're an employee. If you're an employee working harder is important to make more money employees world means that I have decided to. To work with the team, and I'm going to hold up a job description, and if I wanna make or money, I've got to create and produce more results, if you're an entrepreneur, it's a little bit of a mind screw up because the busier you are the more things fall through the cracks the busier, you are the more things fall through the cracks. I cannot tell you how many of my friends either make the same amount of money is being less money than me or maybe a little bit more. And usually the ones that make a little bit more. They're very very busy in convinced periods of time. And then they have more free time in different areas. Now, if they make more than men they and their super Uber Uber. Uber busy than they are someone that if they took some things off their plate, they would skyrocket even to an even higher level than they are right now. This is making sense junior. Like this just share in the comments section say. Yes, unloving this. So that I could actually hear from you. And I know what you likes that. I'm to bring. More of this to all my blog, hardcore business dot com. You can see more tips and trainings that I've done around productivity around. How to make offers around how to handle negative toxic in conversations that you're having in your head. So after coffee Shantou to hardcore business dot com, and searched the blog systems to find content that can lay out to have you be more productive and get a better result. But for the sake of today, look at where you're pushing too hard in a way that's causing you to reverse, and please think like an entrepreneur, which is it like I'm going to obey does here in a couple of weeks. And when I go to bar betas. I will first of all send you some lots of love on Facebook live, but not because I'm working, but because I'm sharing so that sharing doesn't take away from me. It's fun. I love to share my life, and I love to inspire entrepreneurs that a month ago. I could make a decision to go to bar betas for two weeks. And I don't have such a busy calendar that I. Can't get out from underneath my calendar. Right at Bir were pushing right now to go for eight figures inside the company and with that being sad. I should that from an actual humble position. And also belief system shattering moment of saying the less busy. I am on my calendar. The better my production becomes I do more things like coffee with Shanta. Somebody just asked me how did you create two hundred episodes inside a big year when you've got people that have been podcasting for years that have that have created just that amount of content, and I've created a year while when my calendars not super-busy, I've got more bandwith to show up and give for free on six. Sam coffee was Shanna cut the fat cut. The fat. We've seen a huge jump in our numbers in our traffic of people that are coming in just studying hard core business because I made the decision to just do Monday through Friday, six Sam Pacific nine AM eastern on six coffee was Chande. If. Hadn't done that. I would've still been sitting in my in my little beachfront condo wondering about how do I continue to crack? Traffic. How do I help more people? How do I attract more my ideal client base where if you if my calendar is not so busy? I've got the bandwidth to be able to show up here and give of that the bandwidth in the evenings to actually go over my content and make sure it's exactly what I wanna do got the ability to ask you what you want and have you fill out surveys and tell me, and then I've got the time to go through them not in a rushed way. But in an intimate way to go. Oh, they want this. Let me produce that content for them. So now conduct creation becomes easy because you've already told me what you want, and I actually have the time to read it, so stop and just ask yourself. Are you pushing too hard in a way that's causing you to reverse are the things that you would like to be doing better in your business and in your life. Would you like to be? A better father, a better better mother. Are you just slipping in your family to create some sort of balance or do you have a strategy that allows you to consistently stunned time that's quality with them to the end of the day on the beach of the park was that my phone goes into FOX if I don't put my phone in a box. I will be on my phone because I'm just like you. And I'm obsessed and I'm addicted to working my company because I love it. But if that phones in a box, I've can be intimately connected with my family at the end of the day. If it's not in a box, I will work because I'm just not that disciplined. So what do you need to do today? Like, what are you committed to today that is actually going to harm your productivity and you being good like really good at what you do. There's one thing selling your services. It's another thing being so good at what? You do that. They can't get enough to you. Because you're so good at what you do that. What creates raving fans? There's nothing worse than being amazing, and you're selling something, and then people get into it. And they can't stand it or they're not getting the results that they want. Now, let me give you a disclosure on that the bigger you your company gets and the more people that you have the you're servicing. There is always. There is always going to be a group of people that are unsatisfied with your work. So you've got to figure out how to put in the personal development or get a thicker skin or just know who your friends are. So that your your mindset does it get just trashed when people get upset with you. So the moral of the story for six AM coughing shampoo today, and this week is all about the theme of you being higher in your productivity and owning more of your life. That's not the same as me saying automate your business. So that you don't work anymore. That's called still all about you. I don't believe that money. Just gets created without harbor. I have friends who have automated businesses and in all honesty, many of them were much harder than I do because their businesses completely automated, which means you have a higher fallout rate of people, you know, unsubscribe being or leaving membership sites. The attrition is much higher on it completely automated system than it is in a higher touch system. So whatever you like go after it's not it's not the point of this copy was Chande. The point of this coffee was Chambas saying be better be better. At what you're already doing which requires you to create more space in your calendar. So that you can be better. And then the flip side is the way that you become better is reduced some of the pressure by reducing some of the load that maybe you don't have to be working on today. Cut the fat. I so if you're just joining us right now the way the I cut the fat today is I didn't do my hair. I've got a content day today where I've got video a video crew coming a makeup artist. A hairstyle is to actually just get done up to be able to create a month and a half of content in just five hours today. So instead of getting ready at thrown a shirt on wearing my pajamas, and my flip flops and unstinting here on six AM loose Chande vulnerably not being perfect and not being I might look back on this video in like five years from now, I go home. I gotta cannot believe that as wearing that hat with no makeup and showing up on live. You know, I would call online TV right on my morning show. And I might do that one day. And then I'll say to myself get over yourself ship get over yourself because at the end of the day worked on producing resolve that makes a difference in the world. So if you're my little guy coming that. I could hear my little Ed coming. So this is so cool. So I love it. I consider my living room in my pajamas. Only dress from the top of the imperfect with my hair my makeup. A little guy's gonna come running out a few moments, and I'm gonna love him up have breakfast with him. And then after that, my film crews gonna come husband's gonna take sack to school this morning. The filter is gonna come the makeup ours. Come sad Kersey that. Give me a baby blue. Hey, little Cutie Munster say, hi. You're so cute. And then that's what my day's been look like for five hours. I'm just going to do content, and then that content for the next month and a half will be reproduced into blogs will be reproduced to YouTube channel will be reproduced into chaining material emails for my for my Email less there'll be reproduced into all of that. And I don't have to do it because of done the work once say, hi. Are you shy? Say hi. Say higher. No, kate. We're going to have to go. It's twenty minutes after coffee was Shantou ends in twenty in at twenty minutes after every day. Do you wanna say hi, say, hi? I'll get you some bananas nomin butter if he say, hi, I that's how that's how easy boys are banana and almond butter. And then he'll say hi to you. Anyway, have a really great productive day.

just like all of a sudden what was it this might have been this we had decided at some point during that weekend that we we rank where the city Madison we met on a charity weekend that beat that weekend yes I would assume I think you always look to say that that is so not a youth thing to say so don't put on this face off first of all that's not true by the the Andrea I will say this every time that I see you I I think one hundred percent of the time I've given you a compliment about something that I've seen I do recently that I've liked that is true you so you're lovely so our our way we interact our jails are bits are unless I forgotten which is which assaulter which is entirely possible I'll tell you why so there's this comedy charity weekend for Children's Hospital in Kansas City that has it been this long thing why is are running bit I don't know why and I don't know when it started off when it started I do know that started but I don't know why it started like every gene and attacking but I know that you endorse that said we're not met we had not met okay and I know this because we had not this weekend I'm not gonNA get in I'm not gonNA fight you about this but you know one hundred percents you about this they do this weekend and I had done it the we the year before he so cool he's so funny and this is not like me but I I was like how dare you in yeah I think was its second year so this early early adopt I was an early adopter I believe I was the only woman anyways so it's the second year and with a skepticism that is unlike me of going Fuck Jon Hamm I doubt he's funny Mary Kale Fuck Mary Kale Jon Hamm go Johnny is coming and I was like okay and then a bunch of people kept going Oh my God you're GonNa Love Jon Hamm he so funny I choose cal and I really went in but I'd kill I'd kill you expert yourself it was second year and you were not there in the first year I did not go inaugural you did not go and it was Missouri as well so I have I have a regional connection to but okay I'll call in love will just thanks so I hear people who's going this year who's coming back this it was a show by that point you were famous you are one hundred percent famous and people talk about how but you're also super funny this thing okay so I hear it also old school connection to Paul Rudd I've known him since I was seventeen so we have a thing or go see their buds in life and I don't know for whatever reason I was like he doesn't know he's like actor funny there's no way he's funny funny and I had a skepticism and I went in vocal and literally throwing rocks at me and the playground I know 'cause I was I was young that's what you're doing now pre meat I I wished let's as as sweet as it was it truly actually bothers me because I do think back going what did I fuck like what was this weird attitude I had who am I to be like funding these people are funny and then I met you and then literally within two minutes I think we started doing this ridiculous bit I don't know why of our figure like I don't I don't get I don't get into this weekend but we had no no concept of other than just just conceived I went in with me he's one of them I think probably pay him and so I can fire him from the driver a Harris three hours more of facetime just in case you WanNa leave your husband note it noted your husband Yeah you can fire him from my life so I figured it out you figured this so I went in with John Him I went in with a just like Oh my God has it been that long I think you're right I think that's a bit like of how pretending that we've met a million times but it's been so vulgar amazing wow you look fantastic has been that we do this but here in for an audience of no one that weekend and then there'd be e mails going on about it for a year well I believe that email chain still exists it does still exist this guy thinks he's GonNa come in here and also be funny were like pilots in a room of rudd low theriault Adam McKay had a very intense brief brief tents hot fire that burned very fast affected us both in our core has it and and we were in public so we couldn't really everything clearly not and then we would just look at each other and go oh my God has it been you look you I and I felt as if I'd lost instead of gain I felt like I heard your blues what what my championship did you lose all guests every funny person in the planet and then people kept being like well fuck in Ham's funding and I was like him can't be of whenever there's stuff going on then someone's like Qa Andrea and then or just send a horrible horrible photo of a disease Mardi previously we'll see what was even over the day is young not so young 'cause you showed that shows this is the most one on one time you and I have probably ever spent whenever I see my mind when we're having this conversations where we have the Jason Davis and Paul Rudd Rob Riggle and Eric Stonestreet Anka's Missouri boy but that's okay but he's yeah I think it was because I knew I knew of you and was that same thing of like we've never met so it was funny to say like always call you by both names did you ever have a moment in your life where you're Andrea now but I went by Andy with an eye for two solid years that's cute who does this guy think he is I heroes a wait a minute what did you know about me you didn't know any literally nothing I knew you're on madman which I had not seen people talk about how good looking you are Mutombo now I had four brothers I was a little bit a Tomboy I was kind of a mix ham can I tell you that I recently just found a box achieved and I went in hard with a judgment and usually I'm not that person usually I'm like I'm sure they're gonNA crazy crush on me of olive my eight journals okay yes but also I wanna say just

God here we go after don't worry about it let's go and see what goes and so like I've I've tended to find people in my life that they didn't Saint Louis if I've wanted that like see you like knowing knew that that was something along with go along with that part of it and so the people that are like but it has you have to be here and you have to be here oh no I don't I would I do agree that the mess perfection is the masses were yeah were the fun is that's the beauty of it do you think you embrace that more now at this what is the fun part like I think you're an improv person like it's like that's where that's the fun of it like who knows so like chaos was in my life for early and it was not by choice it was just didn't kill you but I did not kill my mother oh you young where like I I'm not scared of I didn't I don't think I necessarily young like my mom died when I was ten all right I feel like you solidly address those what about Chicago cubs I know I came up with you kill who you make hot fire kills honestly kill Kris Bryant because he's on the current team I get that in the show you are begging to play my husband for two episodes but also I do he's in it whether the cancer

what the move okay no Don Johnson is I didn't know what the movie was it was purposely written as don you grew up in the eighties that anyone can prove yeah it's I assume statute of limitations as fast we'll see we'll see we'll just keep it vague thanks so that part of it was I guess baked in yeah so it was just like okay well I I don't know what's happening I'm just going to put one confronted at a I don't know how old you were I was older I was in my thirties oh yeah so I was yell the fuck dealing with like well okay I have to go to work yet but I was a kid yeah and so I think it was the deep sadness and I meant I don't mean that in like the best necessary is up to me and so it was just up to me to see were the world took me now part of the podcast is talking a little bit it was the first time death in loss and it just felt so heavy and that's part of I also had fears of what being during that time I also like moved to La like try to start a career in like all this other stuff and was successful so going okay well better I'd say it's like having a sense of permanence in a way that you don't have as a kid because every twenty minutes is forever ever over like and I'm wondering having younger 'cause I was sucked yeah fuck me up for probably a solid tenures of just like yeah lose apparently loose somebody that's close to you you have that sense of like Oh shut here we go like Dow the playtime no but my but I was sort of saying I feel like I might have been against this is what it feels like to be an adult I know what you're saying yeah and I think that there that is all a part of it also about like being grown you know being grown up versus in maintaining a still a part of yourself I think one of the big moments in people's early way of being adult 'cause there's happy where I go I feel like an adult and a great way but it was I just felt like the innocence of like I missed out on like being a kid for ten years and then I was a kid for ten years like a kid like a dummy right but own up really was and it meant being boring and it meant heaviness and that kind of stuff which I've been working on but I remember that day waking up being like restaff I didn't obviously didn't have that because I didn't have one for like I I definitely know what you're saying and do feel like that when it in different space for you to be younger it probably was just more like matter if it was just your life I was like care if my mother and all of that because you were younger that makes a lot more sense because you've you had to jump into quote unquote scary

Inside get this all right on. Today's show we are talking about checking in in your relationship I'm starting. This was a conversation that we started having and Really felt that it needed to go to our listeners and really get different perspectives on it and really get you guys opinion so The last one left off was Mr Brian talking about checking in now. Do you check in in your relationships. Is it too much less? Okay From our perspective you know check check in quote unquote. Say checking in you know. I'm not going to sit here and say I'm bias or leaning one way or the other or the other but I do feel that you know checking was somebody man you. I'm a grandma I gotTA check in with no fucking body. You know what I'm saying. But at the same time I know nipping other days like what one of John Kersey call but at the same time you don't courtesy casino coming home can be up. My Food. Ready said be waiting. Take a bath. You know coming shipping naked into be. I'm on my way but don't fucking house with me in check on me like fucking kid. I don't need nobody checking the army that that. That's where I come from. You know anybody gives the. Hey that's cool. That's fine but coming from a mayor that we don't need that is cool to feel like somebody care and all that shit you know. I feel like if you if you need to set the tone of trust in your relationship you know what I mean. You don't need sir. Have anyone to check in with you. Know what I'm saying like you know when something you know you should use it. Call your girl or call you dude or whatever beforehand. Let them know you know you good. They should have the call you. You know the check and see where you're whereabouts is you feel about that. Initial question was should a person call somebody to get off and eleven and twelve to just see one on all. If they're gonNA your vehicle that with initial question if they going to your vehicle your vehicle right did they gonNA Vehicle Demi that you trust them right okay. So they're gonNA vehicle. Why does it matter if they go on sixty minutes or sixty one minutes because if you are struggling to get to left from where you're going even for a whole hour? Where are you going and that beautiful? That don't have gas in it period. That's all that's the whole question. My question what the thing of it is okay. Let me ask you. This did so. If you know this person's getting off at eleven are you clocking in to where they normally get home in fifteen eleven twenty sometime? Maybe or the fix knowledgeable letter. What at think is out of respect if you're not because you go somewhere else. I'd rather a call like hey. I'm a medical checking with the home. I'd rather know that instead of me thinking you can let me let me ask you this. So has this together ever to your knowledge. Why do they call you as where you go when you do without that person had they ever call you were okay? You are where you guys are you to where you don't. WanNa work my vehicle has gone lewer that lately and out. The only question wasn't about checking of so so so at any point. If you WANNA go somewhere you're going with this person there's only way out now. The question is so. Could you zone anywhere without this person? When they're not having your vehicle moves chest. I think the answer clearly. What the question. We asked that question. The question was can you go anywhere without this person? She says she anything hunter and she though the no he does not check in on her she said it twice. No he has not believe as taking a asking him because he you know that car at that moment. It's not it's not happening when she said it twice. GonNa wear with on vehicles when you had the vehicle. Why can't you leave him where he's at the House while you were in the bill? Okay mark that down in the books we that's the conversations you moved on from that from that you know my mom enjoy the European her. What would you say you want to say? Oh me yes mosquito of the person it's just and I really feel like the gender thing. I don't think men think situation like this way that we do for you. Call checking in. I've been in that situation the one time I heard you know time. Don't any offset your pulled the fuck over with two cops behind you do not know that me walking into? I'm saying that I've had previous guy is released. Yes so whenever he's though whenever he took he was isn't true but I've never been. I'm not that the locker but I'm saying if something don't feel right to me I'm an instinct person. I'm an age the wisdom person. So if it's a normal pattern if there's something that's outside of the norm. Yeah for myself. I do just to make sure okay when you don't pay me over there. He answered that I I D E confirmation. And he didn't he still over the next time we say. Come on You. Call me you still use. Ibm thirty minutes then but it went past thirty minutes. Oh you are gonNA come on over another. But you ain't heard or seen in Lourdes another hour and a half. Okay you calling here coming home at the second time. Honestly if you tell me Your outfield I'm GonNa take your work that you're just feel how I just WanNa hear for myself that you're still all right. That's just meat or anything. Yeah Nejra breathing play. I don't need to do I ever in trouble. You would definitely he would definitely let you know you believe that. If he if he needs you he will call you. And if you call if you call him he's GonNa fill a certain type if you let out. I mean I mean about rolling finish. Let me know breakfast. Some some in appreciate I think once again depends on the guy. I mean it's cool to have somebody. I mean okay okay. I'm not totally against it. Because it's cool. I mean nobody fucked up the pattern. You know I get that and sometimes you do get the intuition that you may be like Damn. I hit me. They should have been hitting around this time or let me know or become a good adore. Whatever I did that but my team if you set a tone your relationship it can. It can trickle over at the having is security or having trust issues. But isn't that the promise of my cared about? Sometimes we overdo that shit and it can be going questioning. Not leaving you where you are. Who you with all ethnic food could possibly be nothing like that. Something that dude is doing that makes her feel that way. You don't just drum up district from nowhere sometime. Happy for something. Maybe have proved happens or deffers already. Beat his does insecure version. That's past to have you do that. But if you should accident question to Yo female friends or all your friends whether they be meals are males. It shouldn't be a big issue if you saying. Should I see what's going on if they is supposed to be here at a certain time and they are home? Our channels are are. Sounds like to me. Kim. Our time would clocking. What happened okay but particular time when you was initially by the Carter Nikki? He came to the door. Did you actually were was excellent? Did you ask me now? I didn't even want to the door. Did you ask him where he was talking? He didn't have. The chance is not a bow wherever you were is about being nervous being wondering if everything is okay making sure they good not checking where you at. What time do you know because the car are? If you're in your mind is here. So they'll check it is just about making sure is good or if I should check to make sure everything's off duty thirty minutes. I'm going to ask my female friends who have been the situation before. Do you guys think I should say where did I aren't sure I trip? That's what that's what the question was. There's only been thirty minutes. I know saying okay but no no. What I'm saying is if you expect to be there. It'd be often eleven and he gets there. Eleven thirty doesn't want a time. Used to be home right. Yeah you're right you're right but there's nothing wrong with check into if they good. Especially if they're in your vehicle eulogized vehicle tough. Isn't that about check on? The lake is about check in to see if they could is. That's the difference if he really build this. Call you shit. Maybe maybe the phone. Maybe it'll be by the police. I can't use your phone anything. We're we're not really get into a clear concise Situation is you have your opinion and rightfully so. She has her opinion rightfully so so. Moving along Persistence versus Stalker. Where's the line? Where's the line between a stalker? Just somebody does just being persistent. I mean from a man respected. Woma till you she could. She does the line female tell you. She's on her way. And normally it takes about twenty thirty minutes off. We'VE MOVED WE'RE OKAY. We're we're talking about persistence and being a stocker by only female. Caring tended to be stopping. That's what we're talking about I. I advocate now. What I would say what would be a stalker is us on our out. Please be pretty pretty relatable because guys do the back to back calls to it happens in the world. I would stay young Joe turn a Oh goodness Lori is real zillow versus the right way. Ladies say life. It's the other to me as far as a female is. If you like you said you call in and you say you're a good and then you turn right around literally within thirty minutes and then call and then another thirty five forty thirty five to forty five minutes and you call again and then comes in you know today. Now you're talking about is meet a girl or you get girl you send their like to Texas or something. Stalking means month. He held thirsty talking in terms of the checking. You know we're not on checking. It could be your version of okay so that to you is longer so if the girl. I'm saying that's that seems to be the shift that I've seen in years to come expressing expansion. Social Media's heavy is and how much we have basically twenty different ways to get the same fucking information. Everybody gets you know. If for instance you know I've just seen expressly And have experienced it. You know if You send girls texts you know high and then Personal limits as hey high and then you send our one six hours six hours later then you get a responsive damn like stop texting me so much or these thirsty is a year and all this and they often his whole tangent. Put a post about in instagram. Lifted these Thursday night and I'm like since you in my are looking live two hours to Texas. To the matter of maybe five letters one said hey and five in a matter of six to seven hours unquote to thirsty in two thousand seventeen. So what does it equate to doubt in your life because then he stalking you introduced actions and seven hours a month? Fox crazy right trying to figure out what's the opposite is if I said you one Texan three days. I'm a negligent asshole. You so I mean women's L. me understand what about about this? You can't just put gm to you got good. Morning has releasing right. You don't just generic hot everybody. Everybody that's why I good morning. Good morning killed me is hall. I yes I do I yeah okay. What's more important the chronological order of? Who did what I or the fact that we're communicating isn't that what's more important that we're having a dialogue more than I received. I know but then you know a guy reaches to a woman first excessively stock in. He's crazy if he's not doing it enough he's fucking asshole so I don't know again I don't get it anymore. He's planning tried. That's why I don't even try. Maybe of exactly yeah fuck in nineteen year old cigarettes like it'd be like what the fuck is or does winnow with all Texan. You Call Call Great Lakes effort. You can tell. What a person's communication right you know. I've is four years old now. You know talk to me enough and I literally screen shot them Texas. What is this then if this is not communicating if this is not a flammable right every error had forms of communication but it was all communication forty fifty years ago. It was Morse Code J. before that it was carrier pigeons before that it was you know. Walk down the thing is though it still communication so when you say when I heard from women I've dated we don't communicate enough. I go well. It takes you every day for like eighteen hours of black mean. I just don't understand the problem. We know maybe it is but they just don't tell you I'm Iraq and believe me they tell me Bill and Richard and Carl Davidge conversations. We all like damn provinces like us like so. What I'm saying is but as a woman is the my question. What is the line between stalking and just communicating? What is it because guys don't know your we've given up figuring it out so I don't think my answer would have guys like me hill definitely? Don't give a shit okay. You're all in the rotation guy with the rules. Don't apply to them. Inland wishes and prior to the rules. Applying they meet the right one officemax zoo but at the end of the day. The one that matters you're not gonNA leave empty minded and wandering in curious and confused and out here. Just look in damned them online. Doing over communicate stalking crazy. So that's asked Rela- that's awesome. Are these women their twenties relax? You grew thirty three in borough road going around. I'm amazed is going around because women these days they wanted to do too much Johnson. Damn it can be like yes. I'M GONNA call. Eight explained to me. I'm confused I will have worldwide. I think about like the women that required a ten thousand dollar Dan bag in one of seven care or a policy. But I'm saying so. There's monetary day that clearly window have problem doing but a phone call is a Chore Too Much Tax Message. Why people are busy these fucking days a time to sit on a fucking fall like us to do more. You got too much on. Take the time absolute care about apple toward the degree. Turtles Leave Burger d'arthur. Yeah do you talk like? I'm sure when Chris have the way it is. Things is for our plan out there. So you know. I'm pretty sure as an example with him on a serious note. Whatever understand he's not gonNA be on his phone every fifteen minutes. Like just you're that person that needs text messaged. Just I don't think I'm sure him me any other guys still get that type of woman who still doesn't understand this. He needs that that phone call that attended because she's an attention or and she loved. Don't feel a she's not getting daily on time. I daily take. Women are like that. Air Barry and background noise. You kill me right now. My Gosh diving dragging a dead body. You got a lot of background noise power or you. Recycle cans could go. I would go bill our were you should be cooking them so what we have to work within the world was what are we talking about the New Jersey. The Josse the the that's going on now we 'cause you never mind and little Kim got us on the shooting. The video for Qaida comment to you. Don't know who will remove RIMMA. I know don't see there. You don't know but I you know but I know those to know their names personal okay. That was my ear. But I'm saying Kai is the one that did my next my my neck in my bag. Yeah so she. Maria old yes what is she talking about? How how? They teamed up against Nikki to do this. Distract like he wasn't writing this whole they leave Kim was doing a song doing one now. Yes they were shooting. The video for it and leaving is anti jumped trying to make her some relevant again. How clearly come up and I said no because some people thought she was dead. Shit yes the one hit wonder since he jumped in trying to defend Nikki. She not relevant. Okay the beefy music because she because she made a lot of stuff here lately. She had a low. She had caught a little buzz when she came out of jail. Lovely hip hop show came out with a sheet. The distract yes and not to mention that she's with one of the most lyricists mass layers. That's Lewis's of art generation. You'll get a lot of a lot of like that pop oozes name but he's definitely definitely he. What a man come right. Time on. Doing Shit just purrs like talking about the whole good morning instead of just wouldn't GM. I'm sure he does that. Even though the wife and he waking up next to right I mean you know what I would screen her friends. Is this what nobody's GonNa come around her? That's GONNA get her back to Krizan right. She Ain't Iran live. He didn't went to all of equal has been rankin was like we'll have no foolishness. You're not being around her. I'm wetted I get it. I get it but SEO team would you know some do get a little power-drunk you know. And where they become controlling. And maybe if you so you gotta you gotTa you gotTa know. How to gauge that type of activity and attention melted were to know how to debris to shore so but I really feel that he stepped up and he definitely Is being a husband to her and there's nothing wrong with that and he's definitely doing a good job of especially as an example of some good strong black love for sure. Yeah but where are the rest of the men that are similar to him this is not on TV and they're not let start with moral chest. No that was warned talking about today. Oh you got a lot of these rappers who has lives look at this genre. We're talking about forty five plus hit fifty reception him like they were married while they made their house so was around our our time. Now that are not getting married until forty. They got to live through the twenties and he's phase of being married and going through lessons. Be Rou- women who are fascinated. Men had to find their way through life to figure out who exactly in House that they're gonNa be when they are actually ready for a wife. So what age are they ready for why? There is no age the maturity level in all sorts of individual individual. When you're done I would say if you got to give it a rough. No Don't put it on theirs. You gotta be thirty five in a I if I had to say Dander but twentieth anywhere. So do they do really they do? But we'll see if they do they do something like that. Somebody was already previously fucking with like a high school sweetheart. Some shit like that And it lasts for a while but at the same time too young to really understand who you are and a lot of times those marriages break because they're learning who you are and learning your partner and learning life going through life and understanding that. Guess what you have those those. You're twenty two fuck up or to to to learn who you are and learn what you like. Don't like and not just be stuck with them off because you say you love me and a lot of women. Sometimes they put they put only do and and it's because they Dan love had to do baby or where. Where about our told my friends or anybody else. I know everybody is about to get married. Look don't get married because she wants to get married because you want to as a man and don't don't allow a baby or financial circumstance or a living circumstances situation push to be long Jimmy. God morals a family of friends. And everybody's going to be paying attention and as soon as you start doing. Some House added at guess. What you did you went into the rate of divorce. You've Bush really ready now. You've got to come with other crap and it doesn't set a standard for for for whoever whatever issue in so you know and mirrors is not to be broken anyway but you know it just is may going on a long time you know what I mean as far as you know and then you know I think I think they need to stop laughing would in the military to get married because that is like getting a boyfriend and girlfriend and doing it because they want the benefits keep it real and they are really even on a person. Would you marry. Somebody doesn't illegal immigrant for money to keep them in the states. Would you do now why I wouldn't do because I for me to give Kellyanne? Oh you go there. You are very that money. She'd been a Russian are a week. Look like so. Few of Aguirre these Ari got. Her accident was dude. You sometimes you make static you. Have you have a show modern family guys? Then you'd like you liked them sorely girls i. I'm sure you wouldn't be a problem. You know you would never believe that the love was real right I can do. I never had any real low and for them to be married yet. I need to know that you're in this. We are doing right together together right. Would you marry a man for financial gain? Now why because I can make my own money. I'm very rich doing the work. I'm not a lot across my shit out. I would be like well. He is wealthy boyfriend onside and he wrote it. It's a business decision that the day and I gotta go right this shit out matic times with it to a giant every now and then if you love him quote that's not the problem but I mean Wellesley. He's offer by government put. I don't care how much money you have if I'm not look you if I'm not connected to you I can't wake up to you and fake that day in and day out. I cannot understand how people do that. I can't do the Phoenix. Would you marry for financial gain to two into independent from to give him home? Money can't spend. It's been tempted to me in my lifetime so far as far as financial. I just I know I've been in that situation. I walked away from. Its Dome got honestly. I don't got nothing to do with the other person has to do with me. I'm I want my own husband too hard on his coach. I gotTa Emma name like I don't want to be your wife do my thing. So that's clearly what do you do? You think that you could be in. A relationship was one that was famous rocky. Love you buddy. Last guy are you monogamous and relations relationship you move. You got them right thirteen. That ain't that's not a change in atmosphere. I just it just may be a little more excessive. But they ain't GonNa Change that much mosquito in a perfect world I would but once again is too much that comes with that being older now. No I couldn't do it I need a regular guy. Yeah I thought I wanted to be with a professional athlete. And that's why I got into massage therapy. And that didn't work two years in really honestly y'all killed off my dream the are athletes and just getting along knowing that do you have ever. You would never come first. There will be something that comes before out there. It'd be the Games your practice. Your play areas decide groupies like little Argos all that the craft always comes first. But that's why I typically most athletes will be the day Our B end up with a woman. That's been with them. Since the beginning are women that actually enjoys the same sport like actually enjoys for not just enjoys watching me play or watching your know their particular guy play but like actually engage in the sport and Mike Sport in WanNa know about it like my mom is a football mom she loves. She loves football and basketball. She says all the time Sunday night Sunday Monday A. G. Watching Football Games should change management. Harby and she's the one to say like football. I in my stepfather is an ex professional football player so they can actually enjoy together. She's not just faking effort. Hips you really likes the game and they are. What about this? So let's say okay so if you wanted to date Famous versus a regular Carson. Do you give liberal leeway towards the personnel famous or do you still treat them as their regular person. I think the more strikes are do you or do you change how you date because this person is a night at all because and no not at all because at the end of the day. You're a regular person like you were a regular person before you were a famous person. I'm not going to switch up on how to treat you because you know extra pass because you're a celebrity. No that's I'm positive for news. No I'm not feeling tolerated or put up with it because you a celebrity. You Ain't GonNa pull that. Do you know who I am able to pull that with me. You'll be out the door with that bullshit. I'm not going for it not at all so no. I'm not switching up. I the same things that I expect from. A regular everyday guide him. Oh I don't know it's the same shit that I expect from a celebrity period a day in athlete. You're signing knowing what you're getting into by you just you can have all the pretty promises in the world you can have all the pretty were words in the world but you just know what you're signing up for and I think some part of you has to be okay with that or even if you're not you're telling yourself you're okay with it for the benefits like you said but I just. I don't see how you just willingly put yourself in a situation to just never be I. You're never gonNA be fired and for me. That's important led to each their finished shooting. You all ready answered earlier right. I mean as far as you know whether this person you leeway would you because I'm going to be our way I mean I guess it depends if I had this conversation. I was actually talking about this article on the roots and they were talking about monogamous relationships against polygamist relationships and it was actually pretty interesting because they talked about the different classes pollute me and things like that and a you have to kind of look at it both ways because like you look at a Jada and will Smith situation or you know and the rumors and stuff like that and it is basically true. We all know is verified. Spoken things and and it's honestly. The research has shown that polygamist relationships last way more longer than actual monogamous relationships and marriages polygamous You know you more accountable so what I mean by that is. There's a famous famous girlfriend. Get more leeway it would depend on the conversations we have if we say we WANNA keep him monogamous and we want to go that route and she breaches that it's not so much that she's having sex with someone else or doing something with someone else is the fact that you never know respect for me to have a conversation to let me decide. You took that power away from me and you decided on your own if we had the conversation where we wanted to be in a polygamist relationships and we decided to move forward that way but as long as we were up front a ballot then of course. I mean because it just certain things in a celebrity situation whether I'm the normal guy and she's a superstar vice versa. It's just not going to be a traditional relationship you can't go into something. Nontraditional expecting it to be traditional. So that's where for me. The lines kind of blurred if we talk about it if we agreed to it the conversations about it then yes. It's not going to be treated like a normal person. No I will not treat my celebrity girl wife like a normal person but if you are lying to me if you are leading me under false pretense if you're saying it's just me and you against the world I'm going to be monogamous own care about all these guys all this shit and I'm just with you and then come to find out all that bullshit. I absolutely will treat you like any girl in the street because you just treated me like any guy on jury there. I like how he said false pretenses in Lyon like two different things. Well we don't get into that tonight. We're going to wrap it up. We don't have another. Nfl differences between lying and false pretense to and All right that's why women and men think differently.

What The SCOTUS Vacancy Means for Abortion And The 2020 Election

"To lie in state after a lifetime of serving your country is a great honor and this week Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be the first woman to receive that honor. She was the second female justice ever to serve on the Supreme Court in for years she served alongside the first Sandra Day O'Connor. During the years that? I served together invariably one. Another.

Remembered from most of our country's history. Only men. Consider this Ginsberg's death could lead to massive shifts for the country when it comes to access to abortion and the twenty twenty election.

It's considered this from NPR. One night after the Supreme Court announced the Death Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This was the sound at a rally held by President trump in Fayetteville North Carolina. Chance of fill that seat from the crowd and a promise from the President I will be putting forth the nominee next week it will be. Trump has since said, he'll name that nominee this Saturday. Once that happens there's a background check and then the Senate holds public hearings vetting the nominee and ultimately votes to confirm the nominee. which is how this process typically goes but that's not what happened for years ago. It is president's constitutional right to nominate Supreme Court justice. And it is the Senate's constitutional right a check on a president and with whole. In Two Thousand Sixteen Mitch McConnell led a Republican controlled Senate in refusing to hold a vote on the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Garland was nominated by President Obama that was in March of two thousand, sixteen action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over this time around Republicans say things are different because they hold power in the Senate and the White House to. When you have the Senate when you have the votes You can sort of do what you want as long as you have it. So now we have the presidency. We have the Senate president trump told Fox and friends this week. Republicans now have the power to do what they want. We won the election and Elections have consequences. It's called. You pick people from the supreme. Court and you pick. and. The president is wrong earlier this week. Republican. Senator Mitt Romney was seen as a key vote on the issue of whether the Senate would take up a nominee liberal friends have over many decades gotten very used to the idea of having a liberal court and that's not written in the stars. He decided on Tuesday he was on board, but it's also appropriate for nation, which is if you will send her right. To have a court which reflects et CETERA. Right points of view. Wants Romney made his decision. The math seemed to be there. For Republicans only two senators remained on the record saying they oppose holding a vote on a justice, this year Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. To Republican women who are both pro choice. So let's talk about abortion. A Republican confirmed replacement for Ginsburg with shift the balance of power on the court, and that could mean shift in how the court rules on cases involving abortion restrictions. Right. Now, they're more than a dozen of those cases making their way through federal courts. So we asked Mary Ziglar what she's watching Sigler is a professor at Florida State, university, College of Law, and wrote a book called abortion and the Law in America Roe v Wade to the present. Well there are two right. Now that are actually relatively close to the court. The court has a petition from Mississippi asking the court to hear whether that state can ban of worship at the fifteen week mark. The. Court also has a chance to hear a case about medication abortion during the COVID. Nineteen? Abortion Rights Activists Dude essentially saying that requiring patients to see a doctor to get abortion medication during the pandemic was an undue burden and district judge agreed the trump administration is asking the court traverse that ruling those could be taken by the court any day now. Over the last few years we've seen that Chief Justice John Roberts has been a key swing vote of sorts For instance, he was the deciding vote in June in a case struck down abortion restrictions in Louisiana. Any reason to expect he might continue in that role well presumably. If. The court adds another conservative member is now seems increasingly likely I'm even if John Roberts were to join his more liberal colleagues again, which is far from inevitable. It wouldn't be enough and even the possible recognition eventually a right to life. which would mean a nationwide ban on abortion not just red states I think those outcomes become. More conceivable. The more conservative. The court becomes and the big question is about Roe v Wade. What does it mean when people say it is in trouble legally I think of the courts current members as we saw in June there's a significant number that already seemed to have doubts about, for example, whether abortion harms, women, or whether Rowe has distorted our constitutional jurisprudence and so all of those signs point to danger. So both from the standpoint of signals on the court and Signals in American politics, we have every reason to believe that it was and jeopardy. Mary's Professor at Florida State University College of Law. Outside the Supreme Court and Washington on Wednesday mourners gathered to remember Justice Ginsburg. One of them was Laura. Gambona who drove to DC from Northern Illinois. I'm here for my mom her generation. They. Had to go through so much. and. Helped, pave the way. For them to. have. Homes and credit and their own. Lives independent lives. which they've given us their daughters. And their granddaughters. NPR's Daniel Lee been spoke again bony there. We know that Ginsberg's boys on the high. Court was important to many Democrats because her death has them donating money in record numbers Friday night right after the news broke of Ginsberg's death you can just see the ticker going up and up and all weekend, and by Monday it had reached over a hundred and sixty million dollars. That's Jessica. Taylor editor for the Cook Political Report it's an independent newsletter that analyzes down ballot races. By Monday of this week, she says, democratic contributors had given more than one hundred and sixty million dollars online through act blue leading site for processing digital donations. A lot of that money will go towards efforts by Democrats to retake the Senate I asked Jessica Taylor now that could shake out. Republicans that have been very energized by Supreme Court vacancies we saw that in two thousand sixteen but now we see Democrats very engaged and really wanting to. have their voice heard and sort of do something right after her death, and so they were sort of putting their money where their mouth is. What does this tell us about the priority the priorities for these voters I mean is this about the Supreme Court? Is this about the affordable care act? Do we know what's animating people? I, think it's all boiled into one healthcare is one of the top motivating issues that we have seen driving especially independent voters. And given that the Supreme Court. is going to hear the case on the affordable care act something that could really threaten preexisting conditions. Especially that I think is just sort of adding fuel to the fire now that you have a court that is down one reliably liberal vote and could be by that point replaced by a conservative vote. So I think the affordable care act is abortion and contraception that is really motivating these voters to give a lot of money. I. Guess That's the next question. Money, does it always eat will more votes it doesn't. But in these close races where we already see them as competitive, I think that it could certainly have an impact. Now, one candidate that I I'm sure got a lot of money. She's already raising a ton of money online was amy McGrath. In Kentucky, who's running against Mitch McConnell She's been the top fundraiser for. Democrats throughout this cycle but that is not moved her poll numbers at all. She still trails by double digits and I think really giving to her at this point is probably futile because she has plenty of money and has not been able to close the gap there, which I think was always going to be hard and a state that president trump won by thirty points. Now. I understand Democrats would need three seats they need to win three additional seats right to take control. If there is a Democratic president and four if there is a Republican president, Donald, trump remains an office. Can you tell us one or two races to watch that you're either seeing some movement or could give us a sense of which direction things are going Democrats are going to lose one Senator Doug. Jones in Alabama, here's the heavy underdog in that race so they really need to flip for. The race that this could impact. The most though is Colorado Cory Gardner? Republican. Incumbent. He has decided to go along with Republican leadership and that I think is very much at odds with where we see Colorado moving that has been moving heavily democratic and the past few election cycles. So today actually we moved has raised from toss up to lean decreased. So we now see him as the underdog in that race you know it feels crass to talk about money in the aftermath of somebody's passing. But has there been any other event in this election season that has spurred this kind of. This level of donations we've seen all along that democratic especially small dollar donations have been far more prevalent and leading than Republicans. Almost every Republican incumbent has been outraged by their Democratic challenger this type of inflection point we have not seen in this sort of short amount of time certainly I think Ginsberg's death and this seat now being open, which is, of course, what many liberals have feared for some time as her health was failing has motivated them to give money that really could make an impact in some of these close races I think because some of these states could be decided by just mere thousands of votes. Jessica. Taylor editor with the Cook Political Report. It's consider this from NPR. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Jonathan Wilson from WMU and I'm Rachel courteous from. It's considered this from NPR and W Amu. Oh. Starting in October the district will start distributing money to restaurants to expand outdoor dining during the winter it's part of the city's Street Winter Ready Grant Program here's D.. C.. Deputy. Mayor John Fell Cayo at a recent news conference this is a four million dollar grant program will provide a one time grant to restaurants who are operating as a Or who have a summer garden. So. Basically, any restaurant that has outdoor dining will be able to apply. And we are eliminating it to restaurants that are locally owned or have a majority of. Workers, employees excuse me that are DC residents what exactly are St Mary's and and how much money will these restaurants and other stores Scott. So dreeze is literally eating in the street. Right. The idea that restaurants can expand their outdoor seating so that folks can remain six feet apart from one another and still kind of be able to be served by a restaurant and so for this new program DC says, it's going to give six thousand dollars along with these special permits so that the restaurants can go into. The street to restaurants in non food stores that apply that's four million in total that the city can disperse in that money can go towards things like tents, heaters, lighting, furniture, marketing, all of those things that are going to make it possible for restaurants to remain viable places for customers to WANNA go when it gets much colder than it is right now, and all of this really is a response to this ongoing pandemic. That's right. We can talk more about whether we like the word street hurry but I do. I'm I'm rare in that sense. The fact is that commuting did plummet obviously and it really hit the restaurant and the retail industry hard especially, and maybe not surprisingly downtown the area's daytime population. We're talking about downtown including local residents and commuters dropped ninety percent from levels in February that's according to a story we've got from. Ridgewood doing know if these things are working if they're actually attracting people there have definitely been other St Mary's happening both in DC I'm thinking of Adams Morgan Street ary or the Bethesda street hurry that started in June and has been in place and we'll stay in place throughout the fall and the Adams Morgan Street for example was so popular the weekend that it started when they shut down cars in the street altogether, the government asked for cards to start coming up again because they thought that it might be a health risk to have so many people out and about in the same place and so this downtown DC streeter is going to have a mixture of different restaurants and food trucks basically. Re Imagine if downtown DC isn't what we always thought it was what else can it be and it gets to this broader question of how we might use the space we have in the city much of which has been taken up by leading cars drive through it. Is there a different way we can imagine how we use that space and I've got. To ask Jonathan Have you been to history? I, have not I'm a little bit paranoid. I've got a sister in law who's having a baby in a few weeks. I've elderly parents that live close by and of course, want to see their grandchildren. So that is part of my calculation and some of these outdoor setups that they're talking about for the fall. Involve tense, and that might be a little too close to being endorsed for some people on the other hand. A lot of other people you know, maybe Rachel Missing Street, festival, season street. We'll be right up their alley so it'll be interesting to see how popular these things are. Especially when the weather starts to get cooler, we're going to keep our eyes. Really close on this street and the idea of how governments are reconsidering the use of public space more broadly during this pandemic. Thanks for joining us for consider this from NPR.

He's been on being fellow with every religious podcast godmother KRISTA Tippett been featured by every major journalistic imaginable and most importantly for all you longtime listener but classmate of friend of the Program. Simple church pastors that Kersey. Welcome Casper Kyle to reports. Thank you so much Ben. Yes that is a dear friend and I'm so glad we have in common. Yes yes indeed. So I was I was reflecting and we were just talking about this a little bit how. This is not the moment that we were envisioning having this conversation when we when we first connected and I know that you live at the epicenter of our pandemic geographically speaking so I thought if you wanted to share with us a little bit. What's it like living in New York City during this pandemic and most particularly what's the most New Yorkers thing that's happened to you over these last couple of months yes so I? I moved to New York on a move to Brooklyn in August of last year so we had six six months. Can of settling in and getting to know the city and and then of course everything shut down. I'm on day sixty five at this point I mean. Of course it's very frightening to see the news reports in that. You know that GROFF's in the epicenter is always right where where we live and suddenly when when Cycle Pasta hospital or you hear the sirens you very very conscious of the the horrible death toll and the impact on so many people's lives Thankfully recovered But at the same time. I'm so conscious of the massive inequalities in terms of where this is hitting hardest hitting core neighborhoods. It's hearing neighborhoods. Most people call it And so it many ways my day today feels I was working from home from the full grown so it feels pretty analogous to what it was like. Before I tried to say every morning I get from home today to try and make it feel like it's an intentional choice of kids. My my husband and I both what from We don't have kids so that's the I know this luxury in that competitive executed while parenting. But it's what maybe the most New York in happened was I I usually stay on the inside. Today's on the weekend for big bike ride and then in in maybe the second or third weekend I took a bike ride and went into Manhattan over the bridges and cycled down from Central Park. All the way down Fifth Avenue and there was no one that so I had this tie street to myself is always cycling down and it felt like it really did feel like a like a movie scene was it was remarkable. I I can't imagine New York City without traffic. I remember I had to drive into to New York City. I actually having grown up in Maine. This was of course utterly foreign to me and I actually found a friend who is willing to take his big boat of a New Jersey car. Navigate the streets because the idea of that many angry people in one place just terrified me. Absolutely that's why I cycle so one of the things I noted. I know you have a book coming out the power of ritual. And you you write about that you say we can. We can nourish our souls by transforming everyday practices eating together working out reading taking walk into sacred rituals that can heal our crisis of social isolation and longing for connection and I thought that was so prevalent because if the problem of social isolation and disconnection was I knew wrote that it absolute crisis. Now I've been I've been reflecting. Sometimes the worst thing is when we get what we want and you know suburbia promise was exactly this. We could all stay home. We have an everything's to our door. We don't have to deal with anyone. And we've discovered that that dream is in fact a nightmare. And I'm curious if you can share with us your spiritual analysis of our current moment especially vis-a-vis people's troubles for with meaning making and forming meaningful community during this current moment where we can't literally be each other spaces. Yeah absolutely yeah no I feel in some ways it goes. This is a dreadful time to launch a book but on the other hand it does feel like there's an openness to some of these questions in ways that maybe that wasn't before because we being so confronted by the reality of you know what it's like to not have date spirits as we'd expected to A longing think the meeting for ritual connection is is more than ever. I just finished a piece of research with organization called One table which helps a young Jews get together. Shebab dinners in their own home. It was a combination of both smoker. Introduce and also of Journal entries so we all twelve questions that people really onset in great depth and there were three strong themes that came out of this research that feel very connected to your question and the first one was about an absence of rhythm the second one was about transformation of relationships and the third one was the experience of a reckoning Let me talk each of those. The the the lack of rhythm was the feeling of like. Oh I'm not having my eight minute. Walk to the subway or not having lunch with my colleague to talk about. You know the boss or I'm not and experiencing dead the rhythm of sports for example also. Thanks it usually gave people anka in time as specifically the time would happen in a specific place so you don't want to zoom necessarily with your Barista but it is really nice to see them every lunchtime when you're picking up a coffee or whatever it is and so the the sense of disruption disorientation was very very strong and people were looking for ways to mock time which of course in many ways ritual life is is that to do to help us transition from one thing into another and for example. Some things that I already started noticing people doing is the idea of having weekend. Clothes will like clothes that you wear while. You're on zoom. Close that you have at the end of the day right like some sort of way of mock light. Okay now. Now I'm working now. I'm not so we're looking for new rhythms new rituals that was one major theme. The second one was the transformation of relationships. So if you think about your kind of relational field is concentric circles of intimacy. What we've experienced now for many of us is is a massive shrinking of relationships right so we've gone Really spend much more time with the people we live with. Obviously but even family. That's far away. People having weekly Coles or check ins or the what's up. Thread is really full of the people who are closest to you so this is sort of deepening and yet shrinking energy of a relational attention is so what's missing all the kinds of secondary and tertiary cycles of people that you might be friendly way will will strangest you have the sweet moments of connection with and and so. That's I think a real need right now because so often we think about belonging will experience a connection is just being about depth intimacy and and You know that. Feeling of of of real closeness belonging multi-layered. It also means recognizing the person when you walk down the street. You might not know the name but it gives you a sense like oh we we both live on this block right. Belonging is also multi-dimensional in terms of time in story. There's all of these other elements but I think one of those elements which is a kind of secondary in touch layer of connections has also disappeared. So that's that was the second impact and then finally this experience of Kobe has a reckoning A in the entities that we didn't talk about wanting to return to normal right. This was was a sense. That normal wasn't walking actually whether it was about the injustices or on sustainability or about impacts on on mental health Is is the sense of wanting to use this moment to build her? That's a world and so when I think about the kind of spiritual reckoning I think about those three things because I think all of them have been Pompton vacation for us to try and redesign as much as we come the way that we want to live both during the crisis in off towards Curious about how you've experienced these things personally like you talk a lot about the disruption when it comes to rhythm and it becomes to kind of our secondary and tertiary circles of relationships. Have you experienced that for yourself in this moment living where you do Well like what Mario Cots. What that means Ben but I definitely I was like wow. This is the moment to try gaming. Happy Childhood Hobby Muslim. I lived together and I mean honestly it's been lovely to have more time together. I travel my work usually and so we've not spent this much time together. Maybe and it's been an as being delightful. Am I mean one thing I definitely noticed? We live in an apartment building with about twenty other units and We decided after about four weeks to create a pod with a few other people in the building and that really an interesting pers of of having to kind of late for myself. Okay who are the people of course that you trust to also maintain the exclusivity of called but also the sense of like ok? Who who do I want to invest time in for however long this continues and so that that was an interesting moment. mapping those secondary assery primary relationships which has been interesting I mean I definitely noticed how much depend on one of my favorite rituals. I do attack Saba so on Friday night I ten of my son and a ton of my laptop put them away and I. I liked a little handle on sing a little song from summit camp and I been doing that for about six years. And it's been one of the most Not just a calming thing in during Normal Times that especially in this has been just a respite from the sense of a onslaught of news especially in any kind of just allowed to allow me to take one day where I was just enjoying reading because I found it very very difficult to read You know when this when there was so much happening especially in the first week so I I've noticed myself wanting to build those little habits and honestly I throughout the week. Now I'm I'm like is it nearly Friday night. Can we do like Because it feels like going on Vacation across space that you've been a vacation across time and So that's that's been really important for me if I I can very much resonate with the need to to mark time and find new ways to mark time. In fact revising our relationship with technology feels like one of the most important things we can do. I remember at the very beginning of this pandemic. I put a note out on facebook seen if anyone was interested in starting to study. Group around digital minimalism by CAL NEW. Which is a wonderful book about revising her relationship with technology and there was zero interest. So said I can't imagine a time where we shouldn't be digitally minimalized and eight weeks later knowing a few of those people. There's there's there's part of me that wants to go back to them and see like what do you think about that now? But this this is one of the misnomers I think even even a about the tradition of Sabbath generally in the culture it. It's very easy to two point two. Oh you're just a loud I it right. You don't want technology you don't want me saying and that's that's not the point but it's about building skillful relationship with it right. It's about having intentionally that you'll you know that you're the one who's using the tool the tool using you as of course it is into data collection and everything else Yeah I think we need to the practice of doing is setting aside intially for a moment before you return back to it. It's so important and I think both because of the the spiritually toxic nature of most of our design devices they designed but also in terms of having those moments we mark time. You know we my wife and I kept Sabbath on Monday for our entire married life and before then you now with our son. Our Son knows he used to. He used to go to daycare on Monday morning. So Mom Dad time where we weren't also being parents and now he knows it as Movie Day so we get up in the morning we we wind the clock we say Sabbath Prayer and then we get nice cream and we watch a movie. Yes at eight forty five in the morning. Because that's what works family and those sorts of Martina of time and finding new meaningful rhythm. I feel as is so. It's so important because so many of the things we've relied on to kind of that's right. Mark these moments in our lives have been taken away from us. You mentioned you mentioned video games. I'm an avid reader and when the libraries closed spiritual crisis Inter Library Loan Ninja. Like a hundred bucks a year. Come out of the library. I read them. It's a thing I do. You have any brother. Yeah man it has been. It has been so awful. I have read all the drek on prime reading. I worked my way all the way through that and finally I actually had to turn back to video games to to to mark time and I'm playing this long super relaxing Japanese RPG. And it's it's like it's the thing I now do at the end of the night when my son is down wind down for half an hour and well. It's not the thing I would prefer to do. It's a wonderful way for me to have a sense of what you know what day it is or at least what time of the date is you know. It's the time when my sisters down. I can wind down and play this. This ridiculous little game You know that's I feel like that's so important in this time. Where so much of everything we do to mark time in meeting has just been washed away. I really do think. There's this been this profound moment of of reckoning and we're in this moment of disorientation and so finding those those little things life makes no sense but still there is. Mario Kart is really really important. And I. This was part of the story. I didn't mention. I also bought a Mary outfit. And so that Mario Kart console is stood inside. The Mario Hot and when I play Mario I wear the Mary Because then I really become Mario a liturgical job know. This is really a moment when I got to embody the authority. That is Mario. I mean a big point. I think it's something that that is often missing especially for more of a secular In this one of the gifts of spiritual traditions right is is to know that we can mark time within the Jewish calendar. Right now. We're in the midst of the season of counting the Omer which marks the end of Over the beginning of shallow big harvest festival and and so every day. There's a tradition of counting literally the day. There's a blessing for the day. And and I think has so many of us Dig The days of Poverty Day since shut down there are traditions for us to lean on an reinterpret and re imagine to help us to help us feel at home even in the midst of the crisis. Absolutely I think one of the other things that I've I've noticed and you point to this a little is we have this. Need to connect with each other and one of the primary ways were doing. That is the our screens. Now which is inherently problematic. You know talking about kind of screen exhaustion. I've noticed a lot of people are starting to feel that I myself. It's like Oh yeah thousand. Amazing things happening and I don't want I don't want any leave me screen enough as I'm sure you do as well and I'm curious I don't WanNa things you've you've done in the power of rituals talk about how we use ritual to infuse these kind of ordinary moments of our everyday life remind us with the sacred and remind us of greater meaning. I'm curious how you see that working with Win We're working in the spaces that feel so disembodied and abstract has always feel like a very embodied thing we bring our embodiment into these times. Often it does feel like we're just brains in boxes scaring at other brains boxes absolutely. Yeah the structure of the book is really thinking about four different levels of connection connecting ourselves connecting with one another connecting with the natural world and then connecting with the transcendent And no-doubt each of those to some extent can happen can happen with the screen but the challenge with a when we have a screen in front of us that we think we need to oriented orientate ourselves around all the time an actually there are many many ways in which sacred design that. We've experimented with online ritual design and we would just working with the Sundance Institute to help them think about how they could create online rituals the for that participants over the kind of Over the summer and so much of the is is things will be happening on the screen to actually be critising rituals in in place still physically so using a bowl of water in an empty bowl using a candle lighting. It singing moving your body right like still still many many things that possible and what's been most exciting for me is that actually some things are possible in this format that a not possible when you are in person and to try and find those things lean into them so for example and I've been leading like a day a singing group online of more than one hundred people just about every week. It's it's been wonderful. And of course. Singing his lovely. When you're in a group has nothing like it and I I prefer that. Don't get me wrong however if you someone who's not a confidence thing and maybe you grew up being told that you know please just mouthed the words not done actually make noise when you have someone teaching a song and my husband and I will will can cheat songs. Line-by-line and everyone else's muted the folks who are joining us not confident things can sink to their hearts content without anyone else being frustrated and so there are some things that you Chengdu in this in this context will maybe it's about rather than just experiencing a ritual receiving a ritual as so often happens in. Senate's you know this can be a moment where actually practicing it. No south so whether everyone has a candle that they light or maybe they Walking the stations of the cross Whatever it is. There are ways in which Participation can can happen Especially folks who always have to be at home whether because of chronic illness oh disability or something else. Caring responsibilities So to some extent I think there are some silver linings at least when we think about innovation and participation for the future as things we can learn right now and I think one of the really interesting things that's happening for many of our faith communities is not only is there more space to innovate. But we're in this period of forced innovation hidebound. Church is being forced to do something really really out of their comfort zone whether they want to or not or just shut down and I do think that's leading communities not just to think about what does it mean to create meaningful digital spaces where people can counter one another in God but also what. What does the rhythm of our life need look like? Does it have to focus around a gathering exactly right and and and I mean this is where it gets tough because in some ways. Covert is accelerating trends. That will already happening. I mean to see a a devastating impact on traditional congregations. I mean I spoke with some denominational executive talked about up to a third of that church's closing because of this now that is a terrifying number is a I mean. It's it's so you can't even begin to imagine the impact of it right on on. All of the people in this beauties and every trend was suggesting that that was going to be happening anyway but this is accelerating those trends and I mean another trend that we've been kind of spotting that so interesting is how People who are not authorized religious leadership a nonetheless leading spiritual practices. So whether it's like Alanis Morissette Teaching Meditation on Instagram. Or whether it's people leading present blessings would not ordain Does that this democratization of spiritual leadership in this moment. Which is very interesting to watch because as you know innovation never comes from the center right. The new ideas always come from the margins and so in this moment people who've been at the margins some time really have a sort of prophetic voice now because they know what to do. And so you're seeing those larger institutions having to follow the folks at the at the edge to know how to do not just good online worship but to actually rethink. What does it mean to have You know have to have less can be her. Based on it'd be more intimate does even need to be with three hundred other people. Maybe it just needs the neighbor next door across the across the odd. And so I. I think it's a really stimulating and also challenging women. Yes I resonate with that. Very deeply last week was a guest on a on a conversation called. Let's not return to normal talking. About what might the shape of our society and our faith communities look like coming out of our cove nineteen moment and I think it's true that all these trend lines that were already there. Graying populations Financial issues. Have fast forward. We've just pressed fast forward on all themselves. Her faith communities that might have been able to clunk along for ten years have now been pushed off the cliff and marginalized populations within churches. Here on the island. There's been a really deep struggle in the church to include children and preteens meaningfully in the life of the congregation and and that's been a over the last couple of years that's been a th the place of struggle and conflict and sense we've moved online. I think one of the kids has been on worship once and that's been and like last week you know. There was one person under the age of fifty on the assume. Comb family members pastor. And so again. You're seeing a lot of these these These any runway that some faith communities has innovate has kind of run out. And that's a really. That's a really kind of horrible thing and I do think it's GonNa lead to this period of deep pain in many of our religious institutions. But it's also a beautiful thing because it's going to be opening up space and creating jobs for people to try new things because now that normal that so many of our communities were really spent all their energy trying to maintain is now clearly not viable and so the choice is innovate or die. Or you may try something that might not work in your community might pass away anyway. but I do think it's going to lead to this burst of innovation. Also this burst of institutional anxiety as many of these institutions kind of just crumble. Like a house of cards. Yeah Yeah yeah absolutely. I mean it's it's yes and say it's a time of grief and a ton of loss and also a time of great creativity. I mean whether it's called costs whether it's life teaching online whether it's home-based kits that people might receive in the mail whether it's You know new new Focus on smokers. I think that's going to be so much that comes out of this And I mean one of the big trends that we've been following out sacred design lab. Is that the sights of spiritual activity shifting away from congregations and into the workplace so for example We've been working with with pinterest of thinking through what future headquarters might look like and they've already thinking okay in five years time. We know that young people are showing up at work wanting a sense of connection to one another wanting a sense of meaning wanting a sense of purpose. What kind of physical places might we need for that? So we had talked about rope. Do you need a beautiful place for reflection and connecting to? What's most important? You might call it. A jury need outdoor spaces where people can feel connected to something bigger than themselves in a forest which will all of those conversations just amping up times one hundred and and so especially if we're reimagining twitter just announced recently that Never GonNa ask people to come back to work in an office once you work from home forever What off physical gathering places as colleagues going to be like. Maybe maybe the very things instead of desks office. Maybe offices are going to become places where people feel connected to another something bigger now. That is filled all sorts of ethical questions at judges. But what I'm trying to point to is the tunnel longings of the human soul that we need one another. We need to feel something bigger than the cells. You know these. These are things that adjust hot of out of our experience of being human. But the places in which we're going to help us do that is changing. And so you know we've seen lettuce from CEO's especially in the first couple of weeks sending out emails to their entire email lists that read like bishops latches right like like these kind of pasta letters of accompaniment and of goodwill. Maybe some practical advice of of breathing techniques from the CEO of Mariot. And so. It's a very very interesting time Full of questions and no doubt ethical ethical challenges but nonetheless to to see who's kind of taking off the mantle of religious leadership in this model. So I'm curious 'cause I know you've done a lot of work and how people are doing meaning making outside of the bonds of traditional allergists institutions. I wonder if you could give us a quick thumbnail sketch about the places where that's happening. Because I know you've done a lot of research on this and how that might have have changed or redeveloped sense the pandemic hit which I know accelerated all these things. Yeah yes and my colleague Andy Thespian and I when we were students that have a divinity school. We pay pickle how we gotta and what we were trying to do. Was just asking the question in in an age of disaffiliation. Forty percents of millennials say that not affiliated to any religion wherever people going to make meaning fun community and overwhelmingly we. We were very surprised by what we found. And the kind of classic case study that I always point to is prostate so one example of many fitness communities where people were not just gathering to work out but you know getting together for off the web drinks on Friday they were getting involved in fundraising for someone's Considine said no since they were doing You know talent nights playing the cello for the first time in twenty years or they were doing moms and babies workouts all sorts of all sorts of community life. That honesty to me looked more and more congregational especially especially as you start to see people and honoring the dead by by working out with specific workouts that a main doctor. Phoolan soldiers People The ways in which has a strong evangelical culture Crawford changed my life. I want to Change Your Life with crossfire and the real sense that I mean even even dietary laws kind of being observed right people observing the Paleo diets as a member of cross fit in a way that you might think about coach Adagios Cross. It was one example of a community that on the face of it was extremely secular but once he looked underneath and you so people getting married or having a funeral Across the Fox you started to see it as a sign of religious behavior and of course there were other fitness communities. Well things like the November project Soul Cycle Spots and race tough mudder all sorts of other places that focused on on physical kind of embodied movement to help people feel connected to each other but we also sold in office groups and uncreative communities things like make spaces where people get together not just to make musical things Throughout the year but then to kind of Time together celebrating. Make His giving for example at One particular make a space in Boston. We got to know well at Thanksgiving and also justice groups and And groups that were building relationships intentionally across close across race so we'll of these communities were examples of secular places that would doing religious things and for me what's been most interesting is to cross again. As an example we just interviewed the O earlier this week to learn about the impact of pro bitch on their affiliates which are fifteen thousand around the world significant sized and he was saying that eighty to ninety percent of affiliate members. People go to a gym to work out a still paying their fees during this time which to me suggests even stresses even more folks who oppose across boxes. Don't just see it means to work out. They see themselves as part of a community. And when you on your part of the community ons ability to one another and so people mostly still paying the fees and therefore he was feeling relatively confident in in the survival of many of those communities. Now there's all sorts of elements that we could talk about. Each of inequality isn't it isn't expensive hobby right like this is definitely a a high income bracket that members of those communities but nonetheless. What what I'm quoting to at a macro level is instead of just thinking about a sense of you know. The decline of the church will will decline of religion. It's really about the transformation of the judge and a relocation of religion so it may not be happening in the places that we used to looking but it is happening in places that we might never have sought to look and doubtful. That GonNa need all the help and the and the wisdom in the theological training that anyone who leads congregation is because let me tell you? The fitness trainer has not been a has not been briefed in how to accompany through grief. Loss for example. And they are doing that. It's funny as you talk about. I think about the way that here on the island. There is a non religious spirituality. That is very much connected with place in his land. Yes I'm you know it's about land and location. It's about you know the cemetery may be the best kept set of grounds place. The Church building is full only during funerals and people really value it for doing that. Matter of fact when people talk about of the value proposition of a having a having a church on the island it really has nothing to do with Jesus or the Christian tradition really. It's it's important to have this place where there are weddings and funerals and we can come together in times. That are rough from people. Talk about the spirit of the island and like all traditions. That has some really great strengths and resources and also some pretty profound limitations as as well as do all traditions that humans tend to inhabit. Tens out we'll fallible. Christiane got that right I. I'm curious how you've seen these kinds of non religious spiritual traditions navigating kind of this moment of shipwreck and and disorientation. And what you've discovered whether drain on resources that perhaps religious communities would not have been able to draw on as places where they seem to be struggling perhaps because they don't have the connection to that the greater historical tradition. Let's a great question and no doubt. We're seeing a lot of creativity you know whether it's moving coming online whether it's I mean the podcast that I co host Harry Potter. In the sacred text we decided to create a mutual aid society So asking people who listen to the show to contribute in ask the risk and already over six thousand dollars has changed hands. And that's just finances people making off reach at cooling one another to make sure people have someone to talk to. You know there's all sorts of ways in which I in which in which people doing creative things to help one another make it through. I think one of the things. That's probably missing for a lot of those Innovative communities is a sense of we have gone through things like a full right One of the reasons I'm always so interested in in sacred texts is not necessarily that they've they told us you know they tell us how to act but they tell us how people have acted right. It gives it gives us a window or a mirror in which we place our own experiencing compensation with the experienced people who've lived before And so it contextualising votaw joy in suffering and I think one of the one of the challenges for new groups that you don't have that legacy you don't have that history and so it feels like doing this for the first time and that's why I'm terrified And so one of the things and and rightly so without that experience without wisdom you know people people will will stray off the path and and struggle and and so one of the things that we've we've done in the past in which sacred design lab was too young community leaders who were running a maker spatial. Who will leading a fitness community with an older ordained person? Often from you know different tradition or lived in a very different place but just to have that sense of accompaniments it l. during a right that sense of you you have someone in your life who who has lived through questions like this before not been it can tell you exactly what to do or how to be just that you have someone's voice in your life who can say. Oh yes I recognize that You know that that reminds me of this order might WanNa think about why and I think that's often what's what's missing for these new communities and for me you know that's really my whole approach To my work is is to is to start with what people are doing right. So if people are passionate about funerals or if people passionate the of the island right like lean into that. But don't don't just stop that trying connected with the gifts of tradition. So it's it's about affirming that the habits and the things we're already doing an updated lives but then deepening and enriching it with the gates of tradition rather than censoring. While we've done weeble has done it. This way is what the tradition is. The tradition will die if it doesn't change right like H- has to live as to mutate to grow and I think we do that but having it in relationship with with people's Daily lived experience. Some curious how this embodies itself for you in your life in this moment. Where are you dry in? Resources are finding struggles for yourself as we try to develop kind of new meaning out of this. Very disorienting moment. Yeah Yeah I mean some of the some of the rituals that I feel kind of ground. Me I mean so. About ten years ago I broke my ankle so have to stretch them every and I often do that when I'm in the shower so For the wall. Like when when I when I stretch my ankles I I say to myself I might die today. Which sounds very macabre but it's a little momentum. Warri you know it's it's I had this experience. You know a fellow superior very stupidly. I was doing a little grease stones move in was go. Going tide was out. I've fell onto rocks twenty people. Oh helicopter rescue of all things and it really wasn't moment for me whereas like if I if I twisted while I was fooling right if I landed on my head I would have died and so it was real kind of coming close experience if I oh gosh this could have been And so as as I stretch the bones that are little rickety need some need some extra meeting in love in the morning. It's just a IT'S A. It's a moment of coming face to face with that reality so that I I hopefully live the day differently. I live without awareness And Fidel di discovering that tradition of Memento Mori right that reminding whether it was a painting or textured song overall mortality. Right that all of us at some point will face on end Be being up close to that Hopefully helps me helps me to live differently But it's a practice. We do it because we fail all the time. I really don't WanNa pay a picture that somehow you know it's sort of like ritual it'll It's it's it's definitely not the case you know we we do it because we need to remember these things that are true. An eye needle the practice I can get. So what do you not know yet? So many things on this one of the things. I spend all my time thinking about is if the congregational like networks congregations have been the kind of infrastructure of community spiritual lives in America over the last couple of hundred years. What is the future infrastructure? What does it look like? What is it made up of And Lisa Greenwood is a friend colleague. Roxanne Texas within Methodist System talks a lot about an ecosystem right. So it's not just GONNA be one size fits all even the idea of a congregation of different sizes it. It's GonNa look like a mixture of all sorts of different projects in structures which is great. But then how do you build that the kind of support systems for that? So how how? Can you make sure everyone has health shortens right? How can you What what does training authorization support and accountability look like the People in Leadership Do you what are the pathways to entering to different networks of community? I'm particularly passionate about slew groups so I think a lot about what is one of the pathways into one of the ways in which people know that a smoker is what they might need up this Point in their life And so it's kind of like gross scales. Mapping the I spend a lot of time thinking and I don't know what the answer is I mean I I have some ideas that it's it's definitely still An emergent imagine onset and also even questions of to what extent is is a singular identity can remain the central organizing principle. Right methodists. Get together. He had Catholics got together that reform et CETERA ET CETERA. As more and more people have multiple or no religious identities water going to be the kind of boss gets in which we the different parts of our experience. So you know you might really feel connected to your family and ancestors by cooking this type of food meditate with this happen enjoy hiking and but what's the thing that holds that together whether it's a language of meaning making or whether it's a community that you share it with his right now? Each of these things is becoming more and we'll pass lies but that's also less and less Chad so that that kind of architecture question is one that I don't WanNa keep me up at night but I. It definitely is a stimulating question to think about a lot of the time. I think it's true that when we're talking about these large religious shifts. No one really knows what's coming next doesn't this has become one of Migrate Test for whether I think folks really know what's going on or not if they claim to have the answer and they can articulate it in five points you know that they're selling goods and there are people out there. This is a great time to be a pair church organization with a simple solution to a complex problem. People will give you all sorts money for for that sort of thing but I do think there is a is a profound not knowing as we're entering this huge religious shift and I think one of the things you also point to. That is questions of where we're going to locate authority. Because of course authority is an important part of healthy spiritual tradition. Because if we don't have authority that how do we ever get on the shoals of our own projections and egos to something that is really profound? The transformation at I think I think that's a question that's been answered because there are a lot of benefits to this this kind of I think you you describe it as kind of this. Choose your own adventure spirituality and there are some immense resources with that. But one of the questions that I'm I'm very curious to see how emerges is what happens. What what what happens when you need to get beyond your own projections and start engaging with teachings that I you might not like or might not even understand because they'll help bring you to this. This new transform place. I just don't think we have answers to those things yet. Either with either inside or outside of our Our religious traditions. Yeah it's something Mike. My colleagues took about a lot in the book. I kind of right to someone. Who's a spiritual begin at right? Someone who might not necessarily be Might not see themselves. Religious but is interested in spirituality is passionate about community and to try and gently reintroduce some of the gifts of Traditions. Some of the gifts of of That that sense of genuine with others so it's not just a cultural self calf. Hashtag is but is the community cat in which comes. Also you know hot. Hot POPULATIONS OUT Obviously Puzzle Brady's and priorities but also kind of a a a a responsibility to one another Which which ultimately is such a rich experience if we also to be deeply John's ICKES And I think that that that's one of the big questions is who who who trust to to fool me into the person that I know. I want to be or that I have a yearning to be and I think that's one of the biggest kind of brand challenges if I can use that language for congregations. Is that for most people who are not part of a church whether they even identify religiously or not. I don't think people looked to congregations and say I trust you to healthy. Become who I wanted to be in the world and and that and that is a really really big trust gap And so to some extent you know I. I think we'll therapy will be placed in people live lives of integrity That that you just you just know that peasants be trustworthy that they have something on the way they make decisions or the way they live their life. You know like Nucl- helped attracted to that And to some extent you see that in the kind of like little bit in the self help Gurus Rytas and teaches Perhaps ben you all one as as a Putt cost store net but an UNINET jokingly bittel searcy in the sense that that there are new ways in which we can have intimacy with one another through listening to one of those stories and voices right through If anything the public has proven that the delineation between a private self in public selfish. It's pretty much impossible right. Kids and pets and life is always happening in the background of everyone's screen An something lovely about that. I think it's A. It's an invitation to wholeness. That is is actually remarkable. I think one of the things you point to is that the communities built trust through integrity not marketing. It should actually be a moment of tremendous hope for many of our religious traditions because it means all they have Developed credibility is practiced their tradition with integrity. And I think that that's both hope. And perhaps that is also an indictment that so many of our congregations have not have not practiced their traditions with great integrity. And people really really notice when that's the case you know the number of Times that the Varna study ninety one percent of of right people in the Millennium Lens. Top thing people will describe Christians as hypocritical and critical right. That's marketing that's true. That's right I would disagree with that but that's a beautiful thing because I think about an church like here on the island. There's no big marketing budget. Like you can't re rebrand is by is by practicing the traditions of Jesus and that is enough that I think that's the that for me when when I'm when I'm talking with folks and traditional congregations is often the word of encouragement like just. Just do the things that are part of your tradition. And you'll be fine. You'll be people not the one bill would add on that and this is maybe the harder part because a hundred percent agree with everything you just said. Is that then? Then you still have to describe what you have to use language to express what why you're doing it yes And Mike 'cause Phillips talks about language as being the best distribution system of meaning making an virtual wisdom and I think one of the biggest challenges now especially for people who steeped in the tradition is to know how the tree how to talk about what they love in a way. That people like me can here. Who are outside of it Because simple what's decide. Discipleship worship will offer formation like. We don't know what that means in a at an end the assumption that we do in itself is is alienating and this is not just a Christian thing you have this in the Jewish context what you even have language barrier people using Abra Woods right lawgivers speakers. It feels very alienating so that this this happens across traditions in different ways But but the sense of meeting to find new words that the open people's hearts in the that know kind of inherent to the culture of now I think that is the second pot to the integrity. Good language maybe. That's how good it. I think that's very true. And oftentimes. I also think that's true for for congregations as well remember talking with candidacy Dean last year. Yes wonderful she. It who is who is just a a marvelously prophetic voice within the Christian tradition. And she talks about helping congregations understand the difference between good work and Holy Work and how theological language can be deployed within community context to help people connect it with the larger Christian For instance at it in a Christian context with the larger Christian narrative about what's going on in the world because I think it's also true especially in the mainland context right him were many times when communities of faith do something. That's good they think of it as a good thing that they're doing. It's not connected with larger theological narrative in which they can situate themselves in the world. And what's what's What's unfolding and so you have this communication issue that is both external and internal As as well and I mean one example that I've seen happening in secular spaces but to me a very spiritual is the way in which fan communities use that favorite narratives to contextualized the action. So the best example of this is the Harry Potter Alliance which was part of the inspiration. But the heck altering the sacred texts. The club cost because he what people who activists campus groups of students people organizing around a fat trade upward marriage equality kind of progressive issues. People who are not necessarily activists they wouldn't see themselves as social justice warriors but nonetheless with doing a good thing but contextualising within the story of Harry Potter so they were expressing the inherent Griffin Donors. So they were Doubles Army or they were you know taking on the dimensions of the world buying by doing these actions of writing to your senatorial convincing your local supermarkets produce. It's US accused whatever it was. And that's exactly what you're talking about is contextualising those individual actions. Which could be just like this thing. Within a broad story of who who we are why we're here now of course starts in intimate up mythic magical world but listen. I wasn't talking about Christianity the principals at least from my perspective up pretty similar. Oh absolutely well this was just. This is just way too much fun. I want to come visit many. I want to visit the island and visit the and the the graveyard especially. Oh well you know we have a great guest room and you and your husband are welcome time. I'm currently the other thing because you know when you're a freelancer you have to wear like seventy two very small. Have that's right. I'm also we bought a property foreclosure auction property on the island. That is the most staggeringly filthy house I've ever seen in my life. Let's see the the basement had two and a half rain barrels full of Rabbit Dung in it and sixteen rabbit cages with. That's just the start the beginning. Yeah so any anytime you want to come out. Your husband will have by them. Nice guest bedroom on a beautiful plot of land. You can't smell the bunnies anymore. It'll be so if if we want to find out more We're about you. Where should we go absolutely well as you mentioned? The book is out now at school. The power of ritual. Let me say that again as you mentioned the book is for sale soon it comes out on June twenty third. It's called the power of ritual and I in that book. I took a lot about these kind of bigger themes and and the in the general trends well as some some individual stories and you can lend more about me at Casper T K DOT COM and sacred dot design. Which is the sacred design lab website? Where you can find previous reports in writing including the how we got the record wonderful. Do you have a blessing? You could offer to close our conversation. Oh goodness me well. I always draw on that. My favorite Irish ex Catholic priest and poet John Donohue who Who had blessing which went like this old that is unlimited new lawsom into a future breaks with love? That's it for today's special.

The NBAs Tricky Relationship With China

"Kersey the NBA faces a major backlashes morning after team executive waded into an international controversy. Houston Houston Rockets. Gm Daryl Morey the for the past few days the NBA has been wrapped up in a major doc all of this has called into question the NBA's relationship with China a relationship reportedly worth billions of dollars today and he's been the GM of the rocket since two thousand seven is he known to be politically outspoken not anymore than certainly than anybody the Super Smart Guy he's very much into analytics and he is considered a trailblazer as general manager in the NBA right there's someone who has no trouble at any point talking talking out about almost any political issue steps aside on this when it comes to the NBA we're going to speak with the athletics Joe Vardon who recently spent time in China about what's at stake for the NBA and where this story might go next Chinese tech giant tencent which streams NBA Games online said that it is suspending broadcasts of the Games for now these are the preseason Games A. and Joe if anything you know this this blowback that that you've received in the last couple of days is proof of how compost The Guy at the heart of this controversy is the General Manager of the Houston Rockets Daryl Morey can you just tell me a little bit about his background will have to be made to feel uncomfortable I wouldn't put down more ahead of any of them this happens all the time in the United States with our NBA players and coaching. Aw from wondering and the athletic I'm under skelter and I'm beat the Davidson it's Wednesday October ninth and this is the lead with regards to the NBA in China why it was so problematic in China but in telling that story some context was missing a in China and what's happening now as it relates to Hong Kong just because he said it's too complex so let's let's try to jump into this with some new ones else in the NBA me when you think about the you know the freedom fighters if you will I mean you're talking about Lebron James and I will not to sort of a dribble you're talking about and it caused some controversy in itself Yes we set out to write a story that explain why everything that was happening over the weekend you as we've already mentioned is extremely complicated for months there have been protests ongoing in Hong Kong and the main reason when something happened that they perceive to be out of step with social justice or racial justice They speak up on it all right Joe so before we even get to talking about Daryl Morey and the actual issue of the tweet here you wrote the story a couple of days ago and muted by the Hong Kong government critics feared the extradition law could let China target political opponents supporters of the bill claim safeguards are in place there is a nerd for starters now for that person who's not using data then get to the top and say now there's this guy down here saying like that you should look at the car you're talking about break Popovich whether it's lgbt movement or you know women's suffrage race it doesn't matter people catered and charged this conversation this issue is yeah I I think that's right you know the the other day Steve Coach the warriors for the protests is an extradition policy they were protesting a bill that would allow suspected criminals in the city to be sent to mainland China for trial no privacy with cameras all over the place facial recognition technology protesters lobbed firebombs at police forties returned fire with t something great was there was something of the emotion and the past but Amnesty International has also criticized China for its violent crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong we've documented cases of people mean now we're really kind of getting in deep here with what's been happening between China and Hong Kong over a period of decades but this was the latest policy being tester is shot by a police officer with live ammunition moments after he attacks the officer with a pole and not only that prevent that from happening in addition to that the the people in Hong Kong are protesting over some encroachments on civil liberties such as what they see as an invasion adapts water cannon and for the first time since the protest movement ramped up four months ago we need full force this video appears to show the moment injuries that really requires digitization so when Maurice sends out this tweet an image that says quote fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong how deeply rooted the opposition would be on behalf of the Chinese government and Chinese businesses Well so Maurice Sends the scrutinized when they are in detention even ill-treated torture pointing laser pans in their eyes and And take a stand darryl when he sent that tweet just thought he was doing the same thing this political situation at Daryl Morey wades into tweet and what happens next over the weekend more is tweet unleashed a strong response in mainland China the Chinese Basketball Association severing ties with the the U. S. isn't a story you re the athlete it stays with you and there is a suspending ties from various businesses and even the Chinese basketball league and then the major issue in my view moments founder and executive vice chair of the Alibaba group also took a strong position against Maurice Tweet Z. started off right off the bat by referring to the Hong Kong Games and ten cents which is paying one point five billion dollars over the next five years to stream all NBA Games announced that it would no longer stream games kind of tiptoe away for Maurice tweet since then we've heard from Tillman for Tito who is the owner of the rockets saying Daryl Morey does not speak for the Houston go on the Chinese tech giant tencent which streams NBA Games online said that it is suspending broadcasts of the Games for now these are the preseason reaction Maury himself doesn't doesn't apologize but he does clarify on twitter that he didn't mean to offend anyone Maury tweeting them part I and that that really kind of opens the door for what else is going to happen here as far as the NBA concerned and then you have one of the biggest stars on the rockets he probably didn't think it would be as controversial as it was what he didn't realise it again just speak to how complex this is is doc it's CCTV the Chinese state run broadcaster no longer planning to air upcoming gains and the right away even though the tweets down there the condemnation by Chinese governor he's appreciated the significant support our Chinese fans and sponsors have provided and I would hope those who are upset will note that offending or misunderstanding them was not my intention rockets are present and then you know Adam Silver himself the NBA Commissioner has already said again that that the League supports Darryl and his right free speech protests and protesters as a quote separatist movement saying this is not really a protest about freedom of speech freedom of assembly and like you said immediately after this this is a legitimate business issue for the rockets it's quickly becoming a legitimate political issue where he felt he needed to explain from where he was yeah I think there's speculation of course that he was pressuring to do so I think at some level that's probably true but also this is a legitimate public relations issue is it and free two day shipping that's get Roman dot com slash L.

AD for a free visit to get started get Roman dot com slash Lead Joe Real doctor who can prescribe real medication it's simple safe in totally discreet with Roman you get free online evaluation in ongoing care for understand why this situation is such a big deal for the NBA we kind of have to go back and understand the league's history with China not all from the comfort and privacy of your home the doctor will work with you to find the best treatment plan if medication is appropriate Roman will ship it to you with free too tipping the whole process is straightforward simple indiscreet and getting started his simple just go to get Roman dot com slash lead and complete an Anna this goes all the way back really to the emergence of Yao Ming the seven footer from China who came to the United States online visit the bottom line. Ed used to be tough to tackle but now there's Roman go to get Roman dot com slash lead to get a free online incredible global marketing potential like Kobe Bryant like Lebron James Steph Curry James Harden and on down the line they all coming I think in not apologizing for us he is certainly standing by where he was coming from to begin with which is just this is not something that Western culture aim pardoned will actually gave an apology after one of those rockets pre season games in Japan so we appreciate as a fan base and home guys aren't always great at talking about things that are bothering them that goes double for something as sensitive as E. D. but with Roman it's easy to talk about it with Tame Matombo Bill Russell and Bill Walton Ladies and gentlemen yao-ming and just immediately became the the ambassador condones get a sort of the treatment of the protesters and and that's that's where he was and that's the worry is now the lead is sponsored by it's come forward and basically say we love you China we're we apologize you know we love China new plan here of Chinese basketball and also the ambassador to China for the NBA what followed is the opening of the Chinese market to after Shen from the Chinese government and Chinese businesses do you think Chinese fans will also harbor grudge and stop watching the NBA for the Chinese and Chinese businesses and business regulators to actually cut them off from the NBA market and so we've seen a dramatic response to this whole situation the giant Sports League has to say would turn off an entire body of people from watching the sport so ultimately no I don't think that he's like some outrageous number watched the NBA finals the NBA has speculated that their relationship with China and China's consumers and I don't know how much exactly but that's a component of this obviously you know you've already established the billions of the NBA stands to lose don't Chinese who love basketball the there's just no getting around that and how much

Quarantined Mail Bag #1 - Puking During 4DX, Meeting Mr. Crisp, and Going On a Blind Date to "Multiplicity"

"This is a head gum podcast. Whm Mail bag. Everybody I'm injured. Eupen joined in quarantine separately by Stephen Sadek. Eric Cisco Christopher Cabin Fellas how you doing doing all right. Yeah great if you're drinking beer. I'm going to drink beer too by the way. If if this does become a video thing it'll be available on YouTube dot com slash. We had movies and you should be subscribed anyway man so we got four letters here. We're GONNA read them out to y'all Chris Gavin. You are our curator of letters as always do you have any indication of who should start. I hear Usual Steve Me Eric. You okay. Quick Question Eric. Do you have a printer? I do wow look at this. Just some news. Here that the President Kennedy has been dead for a long was Okay so I will start out with upcoming projects again I've been listening to this show for several years and I'm a very satisfied patriot. Subscriber that's very nice Patriot dot com slash. We got a ton of great content on there including Burns. Buehler's Day off of this month. That's a lot of fun. We Love Movies episode it. It's the it's a good movie to watch what you're in quarantine. It's like little all that stuff. He's doing that being outside doing shit. That's GonNa be nice to run through someone's backyard and tell them that dinner's ready. Look at these people safely walking down the street God. I wish I could be stopped by my principals. I remember parades gone. I just got done watching the last nail bag in the talk of celebrity encounters and work related struggles. Reminded me of this story so for a few years. I was running a small independent film. Set Writing Making podcast. So good for you During that time. And thank you for not plugging yourself during that time I think. Maybe it's because this thing doesn't exist anymore p right in with a good letter we could plug you just unplug. The dead is what? I'm saying During this I was back home visiting Mobile Alabama. I had happened to run into actor. Richard Tyson while downtown was also for Mobile. I don't know who Richard That's a fine. Tom Cruise Chris from kindergarten cop who? I just watched that knockoff. Charles Bronson's first movie. The first big movie called death kiss which is trying to be a sequel to the death. Wish movies he playing like Paul. Kersey he goes by K Female characters. I guess. I'LL JUST CALL YOU MR K. So it's supposed to be Mr Kersee. He doesn't use any accent. And I think I think someone dubs hand flat American accent. Yeah I feel like if they use Charles Bronson impression. They'd be sued by the estate. Yes also call them kersee either. Yeah can you get sued for doing an impression of some hope? Not Our paycheck exclusive episode on back to the future part two we get into the whole lawsuit of Crispin Glover Versus Spielberg. Bob Gallons. Amac US so I feel like if you've got a guy who's made up to look like Charles Bronson I mean. He does look like him but like the mustache and the haircut doing an impression. That's kind of stealing someone's mode. It makes no sense though. Just Call Him Paul. That's true the estate of Christ will pucks. States are going to get after you there. You remember the pearly gates talked about it right now. Actually for anyone who doesn't automatically place who would automatically plays Eric. Just go to you. Bad Guy from He's the he's got you. Bad Guy From kindergarten COP We chatted for a bit and I ended up mentioning to him that we had done. A show About another film of Him. Nineteen eighty-seven three o'clock high. I by the way I couldn't have meant Akron. Imagine plugging a podcast. I did do a celebrity. Like hey man. I spent some time talking about this movie. You may or may not remember making three o'clock on. I got his number. He definitely had a few any agree to do an interview. Which is how did you Saxton. Liz Be Crisps. Phone number eager to interview. Which is definitely a big the site of trying to run So a few weeks later we did the interview while I was excited and Felt he was very giving to do this for me. While it became pretty apparent that this guy was kind of off and was speaking very highly of situations projects that were weird to bring up and order would probably never materialized like his like just an ego stroke and away to complain about the industry to one of the only people that would listen. Yeah Arnold Schwarzenegger had me fucked and blacklist man? That's all Arnie's I'd be as big Zarni right now. Or bigger yeah. I'm kind of at the talks for iron man five. We'll see how it goes. Look I had Chris for President. T shirts made up by the hundreds ready to sell and he fucking sued me crisp. The breakfast this morning I also find out later About some not not so savory behavior including arrests litter an arrest later while in mobile that kind of tinted the experience of the conversation I had with him. It sounds like a bad arrest as my guest. We mentioned it on our lives episode on kindergarten cop in Portland Oregon which is available on the main feed but he did get arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct. The interview brought A Little Bit of light to the site and even lead to another interview with an Italian movie producer involved in a never released film. Tyson had mentioned that interview had a similar. Sketchy vibe films. Make a move is what the on this on in a girl to your house. Cut Up the kid in the movie. The craziest thing is the interview which was exactly verbatim was with dino horrendous. You take you sit around waiting for kindergarten cop two or go to Italy and make some movie. I'd I'd a little cognac. When into the screening room had myself a Richard Tyson Festival? Piece Weak Punch Biolo- Schwarzenegger then it's still less to load on. Goes you down. Does your whole career soon enough. A Charles Bronson impersonators kicking leading Chris but did not fuck him listen to Al Pacino Man. He did not do it. Only five millimeter print. Three o'clock high valuable out. There guaranteed similar vibe and is about producer involved in a film. Tyson had mentioned that interview had a civilised vibe and was about something that still hasn't happened several years later so my question is with all of you working in within the film industry with different regards throughout the years. Can you recall any opportunities? You took or people you dealt with who try to get a leg up or moving ahead In this letter is just writ terribly. Run up or you look and commerce dude Try to let up a leg up or a move ahead in what you're doing later. That made you feel gross regretful for using it as a stepping-stone Thanks for all the great content. Marcus okay so is Marcus using this interview with him as a stepping stone is what is the question. I guess question is have you ever like dealt with somebody? Oh cool. I'm getting to deal with this guy but he's doing something unsavory like Oh okay. This cut I thought he was asking if we've used an encounter with the celebrity to like steppingstone something we were working on now. I well I had mentioned it to some people who used to work at showtime and I had some of them come to some shows and I kind of mentioned you know uncared we answered. No one gives vaguely have was US doing something As part of Internet radio show years ago and we went to comecon etcetera etcetera and the trying to get interviews with anybody and we got burchill from the WWF or the WWe Who is the Million Man's like number two? It is okay cool this guy and like it was just like hey. This thing is a two hundred dollars. I really have music. And he got really mad that we would even talk to him about doing an interview without paying him when he was there to make money. Obviously there's a thing whereas like you know. Hey pictures this of this is that sure Foundations two hundred dollars. I guess at that level yet. I mean it's pretty shitty. I always hated inviting people to things like Steve Back. In Our improv days. You know begging people to the shows and Shit. That was always humiliating. I mean the closest thing I can think of to what Marcus is asking us One time we did a sketch show quotation wags there For at this nothing theater in the village Where the woman who was running it was a character actress who had appeared in the film basket case and I remember as kind of being like well. She's been in movies. Were not move is. This could be a great opportunity. And then she was like we get there and she's like you know. Hey guys you've got me money to help me cover the bar. I'm taking a bath on this show. And we were like tonic. Water ten dollars. Yeah exactly all right Chris Cabin. You got the next one. Oh yeah okay so alright. Rise of the PUKA. Uh-huh all right. So Hey guys I love your show especially the mandatory recaps. Thanks for all you. Do you very well that they should mention that because we have. Mandala recaps on Patriot. Dot Com slash. We hate movies and I believe that show is now finally premiering in the UK. If you're behind yeah spoke of a pen and check out our fucking recaps I've got Puke story for you. That happened at midnight. Screening of the rise of skywalker in forty x brave soul with an onscreen. All the story here. All the story is they watched that movie. And then everyone fucking collectively threw up. I will say every day that passes by I. Sour on that film a little bit more every day dude every Disney story. That comes out was an actually guys guys. Putty is a clone and it never ads. And it's like dude shut up movies over. They gotta get attorney Kit on that thing. It just will not stop and I don't care. I mentioned this on twitter and I feel like that movie. There's never been a better case for a special edition like you have the president's. Yes we re you've released. How many versions of the original trilogy? I don't care if it's four hours long. Give me a coherent film of what you are trying to do. Like I feel like if you go back to the drawing board with that if you have that fucking footage shot or whatever I mean I'll watch it I'll give it another try but I'm out on my boyfriend. I sat down and prepared ourselves or forty x experience. I wonder if their first four. Dx experience like mine was also their last four DX experience. Because I thought what did you seen forty S. I accidentally saw the most recent mission impossible movie that way. Which one was that fallout? Yeah Yeah so what now? What does that extra? I haven't been to forty? I've accidentally bought expensive tickets. As why is this twenty six dollars? Okay and it's just like the Dolby atmos- I haven't been in the I haven't been in the the forty X. So that's where like the seats spits on. You're like if you're like Godzilla King of the monsters when it's raining like your get misted. Why wouldn't WanNa get wet at a movie theater? Great Question. If you're on a date it makes sense but I guess but like it's not just that though like the seats move like you're on a roller coaster and it's I didn't know what to expect and they have like a a preview thing where it does all the movements. There's massive like fans in the ceiling to simulate wind and shit and I got like my my good buddy's diet coke and fucking Mr Popcorn and awed flying all over the place and I'm like did not sign up. I mean I I signed up for it but I didn't know I was like seeing Tom. Cruise and Henry cavill fight my but could jiggle. Yeah it'd be okay doing it on its own though. Yeah Chris. We weren't sure exactly how intense all the action was going to be with the moving seats. Missed and sense. I forgot about that part It turns out the man sitting behind us didn't come prepared either The film begins with some rather intense spaceship accident. Which made the seats jostle around a fair amount? I don't know how anyone was able to consume popcorn. During this with the popcorn it was really you have to find your moments to like take Sipa Soda and Shit. It sucks and you better believe. You're not going to the bathroom that hold time. You know what you when it's fucking actually made experience. I get it. You know what I mean. Like those stupid like Great adventure rides or Disneyworld rods or Maadi regatta fake August and it's planned by the filmmaker like the forty X. Who is running that show who picks when you get spit on. It's a thing I think it's all like a computer program and it's just like when the time code hits this you know when the mission impossible when they were just like driving in a car. You're kind of like so it. Just it just knows. Like just like a soundtrack. Basically see this movie. The theaters are trying to get you in there through all these different things. That doesn't sound enjoyable. It's kind of like if a massage chair was trying to attack you exciting About Twenty minutes in we an UNMISTAKEABLE wrenching. Sound from behind that. So boy somehow help. Eighteen has returned. It looks like that. How many way fighters oh Jesus what Putin puking vomit that SIP technology. When I turned around I saw a huge man puking into his bucket of popcorn. The details this huge bucket refrigerator of a person vomited is he enormous like the guy from the hills have eyes are wet. Wookey hold all of his hair back. Oh He's got hurt pal. I got a cut this Adia bath so I got a cut out your dirty air. F- if that he was also getting like c-section your bit my shoulder last time I tried to shampoo after nobody had. Nobody had much of reaction the first time nor did the man excuse him so cruel on that he just that it's not a big deal. I'm just going to remain seated and be fine. Oh He's just excited. I'm excited but you can't be breaking balls about the fact that this guy didn't excuse himself. He's he's obviously humiliated. If I'm seeing stars movie for the first time you could be puking on me. I'm I'm watching the movie. I'm not leaving another fifteen minutes later. We heard the same sound only longer and wetter sound excellent. The man had thrown up again into his popcorn bucket. This is when the person next to him shot up and moved a few seats down. Talk about fucking free refills by the way Nice. I mean you've but the but the BUB pugh job I would never stores right. We are helping US illustrate a point that being sick people in public. No thanks go away. What's happening. I'm sorry. Would you like me to puke halfway through? Fill out the rest with popcorn and then puke on the top two Eric. You say the patient zero all situation. It's not the virus it's the rise of starrewards. Okay there add. They're they're puking at the age that molecules Poop Qiuping everywhere. And it's going in your mouth folks. That's exactly where it's going off. J. J. A. Star Wars movie so bad that the whole country has to stay indoors. That's wreck no more theatrical exhibition. It's no more. We did SKYWALKER and accept. Thankfully the PUKE. Command got up this time and left. We were hoping for good. We were wrong. He showed he showed back up ten minutes later with the new popcorn. Puckett completely reeking of. I'M GONNA need a new bucket. I threw up twice on my popcorn. Legitimated you gotTa help me. I'll pay half for half price. I mean just going back for more. You're already been puking. Not GonNa hold it down. Look in my defenses. Nothing left in there The the the other person he was sitting next to sharply whispered at him. You're not fucking sitting by US To which the man replied at full volume in what? I can only describe as a cartoon elephants voice on fair enough. I'm sorry said we were both praying. It was only motion sickness and This monster didn't puke flu germs everywhere because absolutely had to see star wars opening night But at the same time what is happening. Yes maybe not the best idea look. I think we're all learning lessons here. Let's watch your hands this. If you have to see star wars okay you could go see. Throw at the big deal. My son Gregor whatever. He's excited about it. Rise of the Sky Walkers and impeachment hoax the This all happened pretty early on in the movies so we had to sit through the rest of it with Faint Puke. Smell wafting near us as the smell of vision for the film. Needless to say kind of tainted the forty X. Experience for me and I probably won't be clamoring to try again. Have any of you tried for the x? Yet what would be your ideal movie to see that way? I hope to see you guys again in Chicago next year. At some point I had such a blast at the child's play show regards. Alisyn h excellent. That was a fucking fun. Show man I gotta say thank you Alison by the way. Thank you for writing in and you for telling us about the PUKING. Thank all of our June. June shows. June tour dates are still not cancelled. So now is go still not cancel. The venues will refund. If something were to happen that we would then cancel them so I would say better to be safe than sorry in many ways. Wash your hands and buy tickets now. I will say I thought that I was at a fucking four. Dx theatre last Two weeks ago now when we saw the invisible man Which is a great movie Margaret loved and were were hanging out Were the AMC the thirteen. They're just all on third avenue. Yeah it's a mess hall theatre. Yeah totally and this guy like it. The movie credits. It's like three seats away from me. It's my wife a buddy of ours and the next to him. Is this guy and immediately the lights. Go down the movie starts. It's quiet opening of her alone in the apart with boyfriend. You hear a soda can open. And you're like probably would have done that during the trailers of why I also bring a soda. Can You Shirt Soda Beer? It was sort of because it went very well with his fucking family size bag of kettle chips dude and he's just go ever. It's just like all this rustling Colorado checking silence in that movie so many reasons that killing the theatrical experience and bad people going to the movies is chief among. Oh you at the end of it. Which was the most outrageous thing I've ever seen? He did the Libby. Tip The bag back. I'M GONNA drink drinking drinking chip. Does I'm drinking. Why did you buy? Larry's new pet golden corral young shipped a chip dust found. You would never were. There was he. Was He like tapping the bag you can. He wanted to every last crumb. Money's worth girlfriend who I can't imagine. What's your thinking. You a kettle chip here. You'RE GYP DASH. Jonatan the best celts under bottom. It was an outrage. What you get a you get a confirmation on that flavor of kettle chip any Jalapeno all I think well. Yeah yeah you got fucking burning asshole in the theater to. Maybe I don't know about that This guy didn't care. Oh he did. This guy didn't care about fucking anybody. Yeah I think we covered the question about forty X. Fuck it sucks. Ignore it forever. Yeah have not been. What movie would you WANNA see in? Forty X doll if society. It's kind of related. I never did. But they're the film form they did the Tingler. The Vincent Price Movie. You have you had the actual stuff from the fifties. Yeah when the initial release. I would maybe do that. That is better than forty yeah. That's it's like fun and Cam. Yeah Yeah at least. It has a place in history. I cut like to see the fugitive in for DX. You know what I mean the buses rocking like Oh. He goes when he jumped that. Fucking sewer thing dude. You are getting a ton of splash back. Guaranteed at the little splash. Smell the beer on the Saint Patrick's Day seen smell Parts kind of fun. You know. It's probably great is speed racer. Oh Yeah have not. Soon people love it. Use your quarantine time to get super fucked up and watch spitzer. It's visually a great thing to fucking green out too. But also you get to see John Goodman other the line Ninja or like Nonju after he murders a person. I like it but I can grab it. I don't paint back there and then I'll get to it. I don't have a connected Jersey City sadly so I won't be enjoying the these are some hard times. Everybody they are out there. Comet blood don't So who we had Eric Cisco Ericsson Iska where we another bad blind. Hey guys longtime fan started with episode fifteen boys and Girls Laugh. I was forever burn naming on tirelessly share. Wow Episode fifteen so. This person has been listening since twenty probably twenty ten twenty seven eleven early early twenty seven. I was listening to your mailbag episodes where you were recounting. Some of your bad movie dates. It made me remember the worst movie date I had. I was set up on a blind date. Double Date by a couple knew back in high school. Wait a blind double date. So does that mean like wine. Double J does that mean. You don't know all three people that are involved. You poke both your eyes. You GotTa Manila envelope. And it was just like this is where you have to be at. This will be a blind date. Jigsaw update the couple set us up and we agreed to go to a movie. The four of us went to see multiplicity starring. Michael Keaton. My date was cute. I paid for the tickets because I was a gentleman done. I also offered to buy her snags. Did she start you bar now? We're at a small town theater that had four screens arms multiplicity in a small town so Michael Keaton in a slow oh down. There was a slow clone in a small town in a McDonald's now I would love like someone should update like what's Richard Cheese. Dude come on update the John Cougar. Mellencamp catalog relevant for new generations such as such as was just transpired. Yep this town was only five thousand people. It's a big town for me. So the snack counter offered drinks popcorn and a very limited number of other various snacks. Okay one of my pet peeves is people who take way too. Long to order movies snacks Dayton neither to take your time dude cooling. Listen Babe I am paying for these snacks but only if they are ordered in the next twenty seconds day with anyone and if you're if you're actually interested in them they can take a half an hour fucker. Relax a little bit after thirty minutes. That might just do it. I don't know we read ahead here. This is pretty egregious. Oh Okay I'm sorry I apologize and barely your data's trash. She finally decided what she wanted. After fifteen minutes. Adding on and fifteen minutes is getting proper time but it also might be an exaggeration. Devil's advocate tonight on the show. Excellent way no wrong up Gina Pancake while staring at a complex sign above the snack counter. Even the guy behind the counter looked like he was about to lose it each. I mean we all want to see I worked at a multiplex for six years. Those people look like you're gonNA lose it all the time because yeah about two. I let that go for the sake of the date for all. I know she was just nervous as me anyway. I said through one hundred and twenty on long boring unfunny minutes of of the movie during which date farted loudly at least six times without any fucking Rodney dangerfield. Yeah Okay Now. Do pop corner biggby. What snack is this? Do you have a Broccoli and Cauliflower Broccoli and cauliflower? You know they'll do dude fuck and Jalapeno kettle chips guarantee that do did after the movie I ended. I excuse myself to go to the bathroom all right. I just can't get over it. I Apologize. After the movie ended. I excuse myself to go to the bathroom while the other three went outside when I came out the couple that had set us up had just look so I guess it was a blind date but you were on a double day. You're blind the couple was like. Oh you'd love Mary. She's great. She farts all the time. You like farmers right away Jeff. You're not our friend with the FART. Fetish fuck actually wait a second? This is bullshit though. He's saying he got out of the bathroom and those people had just left by something they were waiting out. Oh okay let's let's let's see we gather when okay okay. That's I guess I guess the couple of digits leave when I came out the couple that it set us up just left okay. That's fine. I guess that's sort of like. Let's see how it goes. You don't want to interrupt you guys. It GETS AROUND US. Ready to go dude again. We forgot to tell you about our friend Sally. Whenever she gets horny she farts uncontrollably. A good job. We decided to go to a nearby coffee shop talk boy. Was that exactly Fart. Turn a you put coffee of the fight. You got yourself a shit. That's exactly right and shit five times the popcorn bucket. I understand if this can take down from Youtube. I we're just talking all. Listen we're just talking about farts and whatnot man like actual art camp on this website. That's True Okay. So cabinet you drink as meat or something. What the fuck is in that the media? I thought he has a mead. There and actually looks like blood now. Doesn't have a vampire. Now that's true. That's true yeah you looks at all right. So where was I okay? So there was a coffee shop. It was a mistake. I tried to start a conversation several times and all I got back was one word answers. It was twenty minutes. So what kind of things are you into not much What do you want to do after you graduate? I Dunno oh that's that's fair. I mean you you. Young people are indecisive. Finally her mom picked her up and I got the hell out of there. Okay so where was I finally? Okay I never called her back. I heard later that she had a great time on the date and I thought that was just couldn't see myself. What a second day with someone. Who took forever to order farted uncontrollably. And then even couldn't even hold one conversation now at my question is what does farted uncontrollably mean Doug one fire or like Sacchi and level if we go back through the text here. It says farted loudly at least six times nine times. I'm sorry but after the first part on a date especially you check and things out in the restroom trying to get the rest of that gas tip the case you're watching multiplicity man. You can go to the bathroom. What did I miss? Who Stupid one what. He didn't even get that. I was doing a Fart for every clone put together which one is Andie. Macdowell fucking all of them okay. Okay never called her back. Okay so I never once did a blind date again in my life chicken. I know I know you have already talked about your worst movie date so I thought you could add. I could ask for your thoughts on buying snacks at the theater. I believe that if you don't know what you want you should step out of the line until you do. Do you agree dee mack from Kingston Ontario Canada and I do agree step on the line until you know what you want. Yeah I know movies next. That's everywhere do not show up to any counter being like what are you have? Because I can't I can't also a cousin of this That I wanNA throw out there. If you're the kind of person that goes into like a restaurant and you're like so what's good here like you're asking the server like so what's good here. Fuck you man. That person doesn't fuck. No you like to eat that of your shellfish allergy. You know what I mean. If you're if you're like sitting down with a with a wait staff and you ask them like the specials or what they reckon I can understand it but then you're also in the trap where it's like. Oh you know you should try this and then you immediately nod. Orderly is exactly the kind of trap. I have no opinions. Our inner life at all Could you tell me what to eat? Please also the other thing though with like a movie theater concession stand line. I don't know there's only like tops for things right. I mean soda hop corn also bargain Andy Nachos this is back when multiplicity was in theaters. So there was popcorn and milk duds and get the get the fucking hot air. No I think you've got the free. You had the bags that you could way at that point. Oh Ball Candy man that was dangerous mistress right there. They still don't think so now they don't know is it's like a germ trap yeah All right the last one from the Department of criminal dumps I feel I feel so honored that we have on this show Hi Guys I heard you. Mention mailbag is choosing only the finest selection of e mails So this probably won't make the cut but I'll go on anyway. Well look at you. Now see the final slot. Do this is the hammer exactly. That's why it pays to just take a chance man. You never know I heard Steve Story in the first dealer episode about coming home early from school to take a dump and sister thought he was a burglar will they were. They were both home sick yes Someone joked about how burglars don't Stop Burglar in to take a dump. My evidence proves otherwise about two years ago. I had to leave my house. Semi-abandoned for about six months family issues. Even though I still came back to check up on things once a week word got out that the house was vacant one night while my neighbor was on her porch listening to a police scanner. Don't ask what he says. Don't ask I say what the fuck. I don't know a semi abandoned neighbor with the police scanner. It's all together. She heard from this. She heard the sound of glass breaking coming from my living room. She saw straight off teen by God. Still still go I'd She saw a strange car was in my driveway. She called nine one one and then moved her giant pickup in front of the driveway to block the robbers began. No one has ever driven on a front lawn. Well also but that that that fits with the police scanner mentality totally due to real fucking hero on our hands ask. She probably was screaming like burn. The fields to cops are coming to burn the crops behind you as you say or ask the crooks were arrested and maybe my neighbors should have won a medal for heroism or something but I think she just got chewed up by the cops. Were getting involved. Yeah they don't like that Anyone Paul Kersey running around. Oh absolutely I thought somebody was big burgled so I parked my car in front of their heels stone cold. Steve Austin I got stunner. Excuse me do you have a young daughter. Could flirt with WHO will inevitably be murdered later. bobby by anyhow. When I came in a lot of my stuff was staged in the living room to be taken when I went upstairs to the bathroom I've found the toilet had been totally defiled in a way that my models have not been able to account for completely dominated around the ball on the seat and even under the Z. Someone like Shit squad like like like in the air in an on the scene with this seems like it's a thing where they are like I and I hate to be talking like this ladies and gentlemen but like up and was throwing it you know what I mean the toilet.

Oh are you thinking of the savages with Philip Seymour? Hoffman and Laura Linney right shit on in that are really I forgot. Forget dude never seen anything like it have been to. Punk show bathrooms Yeah been there. I thought maybe if they hadn't stopped to take a dump maybe they would have gotten away anyhow. You're wrong burglars do stuff to take a dump. Great show thanks Pete in California. Go you gotta go your nervous. You know what I mean. You're in the middle of a crime row. You're not nerve. That's a good point. That's a good point. Maybe it was a rookie burglar but the language she uses It sounds more like it was planned like. They were eating a lot of fiber the day before. I think it's a thing eight. I think it's a thing to add. Insult to injury. Man I'm GonNa rob this dudes house and also I'm GonNa fucking shit all over. This guy's bathroom really stick it to him.

I'm in I'm pretty much and especially if granted Jagger's might be involved as soon as you said. When it was Steve I do recall. I think it was a thing where it was like I.

Everybody's very nice. It's very sweet and it's like let's relax together. Here's a question though. It would be better right if that guy was like breaking ship accidentally all the act. Well I tried to gang and I broke something else that the repair shop. It was like the Great British apology. Now isn't the snow and I fucked it up. Mom I I'm sorry Ma'am I Chateau over your vase buggered. Your clock base. Sorry I wrote Van. Halen rules on your antique water chest apologies.

March 16: Come home. Now

"This is a CBC podcast. Hello I'm Carol off and I'm Ali Hassan. This is as it happens. The podcast edition tonight. Come home now. That was the message from Prime Minister. Justin Trudeau today to Canadians abroad. We reach a couple stuck in Spain for desperately trying to heed that call borderline chaos deputy prime minister Christa. Freeland says watch this space when asked about closing the candidate. Us border a conservative critics. Say the government should be acting more quickly on crucial decisions boy on the beach.

Mcisaac says he's hoping to boost social connection during social distancing with a new online music event. He's calling quarantine Kaley as it happens. The Monday edition radio. That appreciates a good tuneup. Getting into Canada just got a lot harder today. Justin Trudeau announce the candidate is closing. Its borders to all non-canadians and nonpermanent residents except for those coming from the United States and for Canadians abroad. The prime minister's message was clear. Let me be clear if you're abroad. It's time for you to come home if you've just arrived you must self isolate for fourteen days and finally all Canadians as much as possible. Should stay home by staying home. You can not only protect your health and that of those around you but ensure that our healthcare professionals and our healthcare systems can focus on those who need their help. This is an adjustment for all of us. We know that staying home is an important step to protect the community and each other. We all have to do it. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urging Canadians to stay home. If they're in Canada or to come home if they're abroad we'll hear from deputy. Deputy Minister Christophe land in just a moment. But first for people like Donna mcinnis and Kevin Ball coming home is a lot easier said than done. The Halifax couple is currently in Spain. Which now has nearly ten thousand confirmed cove in nineteen cases and more than three hundred and thirty deaths and flights out are increasingly. Hard to come by not to mention wildly expensive. We reached McKenna's and Mr Ball in Malaga Donna. I'll start with you. How are you both doing right now? Well we're we're should be relieved. We're shaking way because we've had such a rush of trying to make a booking and having made one of course we're still faced with uncertainty and that was a booking you just made moments ago so because we we spoke with you earlier you were thought you were going to be stuck in Spain but you got something now did you. We did. We heard Prime Minister Trudeau as ominous phrase that we should not only come home but that we should come home quotes while it was still possible to get home that that hasten wanted to actually meant right Kevin. We're trying to figure it out too. And now what do you have in the way of an exit plan? No we're leaving on Thursday at seven something at night provided to taxi can get us from here to Malaga Airport. And then Will arrive in Halifax Roy tonight for planes three start. Aer lingus from Malaga to overnight in Dublin and then from Dublin. In the morning to Heathrow. It's an hour and a half or something. And then this other from Heathrow which our Canada it goes Pearson shortstop their trips to Halifax. I don't want to add to any of you having but You you're making a lot of plane. Changes a Lotta stopovers. Are you concerned about your exposure during that trip exactly? That's why we originally felt we might be to hunker down and we'll wait it out but the pace of change is just crazy. Gotten Spanish television has shown us just conditions in terms of health care profession. One of our uncertainties is what kind of healthcare we could get if we needed it for another very ordinary problem. If you've fallen Racer Lake Kevin. You might have asked how much you paid for your trip. twelve hundred pounds so we could have paid a lot more but we were kind of tough about that and we could have paid six thousand bucks for the two of his quite easily. My husband was owner of steel refused to do it like being played. Oh okay so you paid a chicken there and and did you succeed. Ritu Kit Kit. You hold to your price. Yeah we did. We got a flight for twelve hundred pounds. But as I said I'm shaking because I wanted to move very quickly on a when we saw it. Now how long have you been in Spain now? Well we got here. On the first of February we were both here until the end of February and then I had to go to Toronto for a medical treatment so to me weak and so we've been here basically says the beginning of February the exception of August away and so did any ideas it may be. I mean I. I don't know if he's looked at the weather in Halifax I'm sure it's much nicer. You and he just hunkering down and staying in Spain. We thought that but you know first off. It was going to be fifteen days. That would be fine. We actually had to talk about well. What if it turns into two months three months six months? That was a bit of a corker six months you know. We just didn't want to take the risk that we wouldn't be able to get back donnas going to be seventy one in a couple of weeks seventy six so you know we. We just didn't want to take any risks. But you're quite right to point out the you know the being in traffic is really the riskiest part because we're very safe where we are. We have a lodgings which are pretty separated from anybody the only time we will be exposed years if we run out to get food and at the risk of sounding ages they are saying that over seventy is kind of a difficult age to be for. This virus was better than over eight hundred. Just look at the bright side but it was when you heard the prime minister. Say Get home. Get home now. Because you've other T- there's been other warnings other suggestions but that was the one that actually made you think critical phrase was while it's still possible to do so that's almost like oh my goodness there are countries that don't let you out. We were worried about that. Spain and there are countries that don't let you in and I'd hate to think Canada was one of those. We haven't had any indication from our government to particular pains would be taken to repatriate citizens who happen to be stupid enough to or the directive to get home well. Canada has said that people who are not Canadian. Permanent residents cannot get into the country so we have closed our borders to some extent and they've have warned that this is the fluid situation and they will rule out nothing to protect the health system here. So you're right to consider that now. The other thing that Mr Trudeau said that Canadian travelers will be able to get financial assistance to help with the cost of returning home or temporarily cover basic needs while they wait to come back to Canada. We don't know exactly what that entails at this point but does that encourage you know what we didn't give that a full throttle? Maybe we'll maybe. We'll refund backups. But would be but if you need assistance way you travel. It seems the Canadian government might take a long time to get but it's going to be available for people trying to get home. Yes well that's particularly. I think particularly people who have taken one week two week holiday in a borrowed money to do so. You know my heart goes out to them so I. I'm really pleased that they could get some early. But you're both healthy. No you both feeling pretty fit for travel. Well let me tell you this. I have a little anxiety about the fact that I have a chronic bronchial condition which means I cough sometimes. I probably caught by the most people now. I heard that well first of all that makes me susceptible and song to be doubly careful but I've also heard that you know you can get challenged by flight attendant. You can make other people uncomfortable. The more uncomfortable I get the more anxious I get the more likely to cough so I hope impulsively. Well you know I am healthy. Well Donna you won't be making many friends on your flight home. That's for sure but the other thing is that the airlines and you should know this that the other instruction from the government is that if airlines belief people to be sick to have the virus that they're not to bring them back to Canada so that is also a consideration. Sally and basically we're healthy. We're hiking up mountains and now we're fine but this is constantly nineties at that sort of you. Know TRUMP CERTAINTIES. Kevin and Donna. I wish you safe travels. It's GonNa be a long fight but I hope you get without anything. Thanks for speaking with us. We're looking forward to talking our souls in for two weeks at all. You'll be doing that. Take Care Thank you. Donald macinnis and Kevin Ball are two of the many Canadians abroad wondering when and how they'll be able to make it home we reached them in Malaga Spain. And as you've heard. The Prime Minister announced new measures aimed at controlling the spread of covert nineteen here. He is again expanding on his. Come home stay home message I. We will be denying entry to Canada to people who are not Canadian. Citizens or permanent residents this measure will carve out some designated exceptions including for aircrews diplomats immediate family members of Canadian citizens and at this time. Us citizens second air operators will be formally mandated to prevent all travelers who present symptoms of covert nineteen to board a plane. Air Operators will be required to complete a basic health assessment of every air traveler based on guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada. This means that anyone who has symptoms will not be able to come to Canada. I know this news will spark concern among Canadians travelling abroad. I want to assure you that our government will not leave you. Unsupported to help a symptomatic Canadians return home. Our government will set up a support program for Canadians. Who Need to get on a plane? Canadian travelers will be able to get financial assistance to help them with the costs of returning home or temporarily covering their basic needs while they wait to come back to Canada. That was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Ottawa this afternoon. Matt General is the conservative health critic. We reached him in his Edmonton writing. Mr General the prime minister has announced severe new restrictions on foreigners coming into Canada and Canadians. Returning who show symptoms? Are You satisfied with that? I think you know we've we've been Been trying to to take a real supportive approach of the government We've certainly asked in the last twenty four hours that there's measures that they take these These measures are partly in line with with some of what we've asked for So we want to be there to support The prime minister when it comes to you know just like Carol. This has really been quite extraordinary. time we've we've seen you know my colleague and the EP block with a qua- The minister all all attempting to to help and support The minister as best. We can you said this elsewhere you. You're concerned that there is an this is a quote that there's a secrecy around the decisions that you feel that you have been excluded from the the the planning. What what could you have brought to the table? Well I think right now what we're getting and you're right. I have to spend an inordinate amount of secrecy but I think what We've been getting right now from from the minister's Office is that one way communication so thing. This is what we're doing I. It's quite frankly. It's after the fact and this is what we did what we just announced so it's being able to be at the table and I think have some of the the thoughtful conversations you look at the what we just saw over the weekend the Pearson Airport. So we're policy was announced but then the wasn't being implemented place you know being member of parliament that represents part of Canada that doesn't have a lot of Minister sitting at the table. And so you feel that that. That could have been helpful if people from the West had been at the table. But and you've also said that you're concerned that you'd like to see people among the things you've asked for is that from high risk areas that their flights be cancelled altogether. You mentioned Spain earlier. We spoke with two elderly Canadians. Who are on the way back from Spain. The one of them has has a chronic cough. What what would you say to them tonight? I think your first or your your initial point I don't think it would hurt having also the table. Essentially is what I think the message we want to let the minister the Prime Minister No With regards to a couple from from Spain and we just heard today there's three additional Abso BC and do certain heart goes out to those families. It's a lot of families going through a lot of stress and and a lot of by knowing right now we've been told when asked the boat to specific cases that the the foreign affairs offices is to support and we've sent a number of cases that way we haven't come home yet but we've been assured that they're working diligently to guess to Canadians home you mentioned in earlier Scrum that countries including Spain. That you thought should we shouldn't have flights back. We shouldn't be letting people back from this hot spots. You did not mention the United States affect you specifically ruled out. We've seen now a lot of talk that the next surge in cases is coming in the United States. They've admitted that there's a serious lack of testing and they are concerned within their own community that the public health care system in the US is inadequate to the task. Why do I think that it's okay to keep the border open with? The United States or mentioned one of our asks is just flights from high risk areas according to public health agency Those are the the South Korea Iran pending Spain With the US. They haven't put that as a high risk area commonsense you're you're right would dictate that there is a lot of cases in in the US particular Washington state which shares a border with British Columbia The however the public health agency hasn't indicated. That's the case. You know I I think would go back to what The health minister said when it comes to borders being that shutting down borders on on Friday. Shutting down borders effective. Now how it is. It is effective Apparently so we're we're trying to get to the bottom of where that's where that sciences. Because you're right. You know. Common Sense would indicate that a place like the United States would have a significant risk factor bringing people across the border. But why not look when? I'm confused now so why. Why wouldn't you advocate that? We should shut that border. Boy I think the prime minister said that the US has been granted the exception and based on science and evidence if that science is determined that the best approach and they should explain why and considering the they'd received a up to this point. I don't think apprentice necessarily answered the question in ground. And that's a question that we have over there to wondering what is special about the US. That's remaining open so be based on science in evidence does quickly perhaps based on politics. I I don't know you know that's a fair point to certain. Probably a point to to ask the prime minister perhaps vacations a comment if closed the border to Donald Trump You know the prime minister would have had to make that call again. I think it comes back to our point. We we simply want to be sitting at the table. And having these discussions I think being able to weigh in and provide some of that I even take as an observer at this point in time Being able to to hear some of these discussions are going. You know they. We saw scrummed yesterday. Where we're a number of ministers came out of the cabinet meeting saying we have announcement but we're not gonNa tell you what helps me is you know. I just think there's there's really does seem to be that in order mounted secrecy. That's just appreciate the opportunity to share that with Canadians. Well there Mr Jin Ryu thank you thank you appreciate it bye. General is the conservative health critic. We reached him in Edmonton. Christopher Freeland is Canada's deputy. Prime Minister we reached her today in. Ottawa. Mr Phelan. Your government took some very big steps today and One of them being the barring entry to travelers who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents. But you left the border with the US. Open to the United States to non-canadian visitors. Why is that well? I think first of all let me be clear that when it comes to the. Us border that is something that we are constantly reviewing and we are looking at very closely in partnership with the provincial leaders with unions with businesses and of course with our US neighbor's and it's something that I think all Canadians understand is a unique situation. This is the border. The land border between Canada and the United States is the world's longest on militarized border. Four hundred thousand people lost that border every day and just detained. Let let me just finish my sentence caroline. I promise I'll answer more questions. And so you know that human movement across the border is a lifeline for both the Canadian and the US economies. I think we all know about supply chains and things like the automotive sector but also for things like getting groceries in our stores so anything we do at the US border and it is something we are reviewing constantly needs to be done with. Great care very surgically and carefully on. That is what we are focused on right. Now you're not ruling that out that that may be because everything you said does that. Everything's on the table. Everything's possible is it possible that you might close the border to visitors so I never make predictions about the future but let me say we are not ruling anything out and Adrian Dix the Health Minister of BC Offered what I think was very sensible advice today to. Us tourists saying please. Don't come visit US right now. We have been very clear that our advice to Canadians is avoid. Nonessential travel outside of Canada and four American visitors. Look normally we love it when come visit us but this is a very special circumstance and what we have been very clear on. Is everyone who comes into Canada from outside Canada Canadians and people who are not Canadian will have to self isolate for fourteen days. That doesn't sound like a great holiday to me. So my personal advice to all American friends is. Now's not the time to visit which you're telling people who are from other countries you cannot come yet. But you're saying we can ask Americans not to come. Why not make the next step? That Minister Dick's has and say don't come. Well I have. I think offered the same advice just now Minister Dick's offered and as I said it's a situation where review in constantly when it comes to the. Us border. I think Canadians No. It's a unique situation. Just unique in terms of how much the daily life of so many Canadians depends on what happens going back and forth across that border so any action we take needs to be very carefully thought through having said that we understand. This is a very particular situation we need to act with agility and Alacrity and it is a situation. We are absolutely reviewing right. Now we're seeing in the United States. They have admitted. They have a lack of testing and very weak testing. They've had a surge. In cases they people who work in their public health. Care system say it was inadequate to even before this they it was threadbare and they're not up to this task that they are really struggling with it. Are you not concerned? About what the developments the the the lack of public health care in the United States. And what if what impact it might have on all the efforts that you're putting into it at this point you know Carol. My first and foremost concern is to ensure that Canada's public healthcare system has all of the resources that it needs to rise to this challenge. Four Scher we are mindful of the situation in all other countries very much including the US border. And that's why we've said clearly anyone coming into Canada from the US whether Canadian or not needs to self isolate fourteen days. I think that that is and should discourage casual visitors and I do absolutely except as the wrong word. I sort of embraced the reality that we need to be and we absolutely are very energetically reviewing what it is. We need to be doing at our border with the US. We need to really be thoughtful. About what is the essential work that happens back and forth across that border and you know also to do this at the end of the day. Appreciating that it is actually good neighborly behavior four Canadians and Americans to have a conversation which we are having right now about. How can we take care of ourselves and each other and we are having that conversation in real time I would say? Watch this space. Okay so you're saying of just a quick answer to this one that you not ruling out going beyond asking them not to come and telling them not to come. We are not ruling out anything and we think it needs to be a very collaborative conversation with business with Labor with provinces with cities and with our American partners and we are having that conversation right now. Okay we the department is just said today. The window is closing on stopping the spread in Canada's very very concerning statement to make and Important one the biggest criticism. We're hearing on this program and CBC is that people feel that. Were catching up. Forty eight hours behind where we should be that we're skating to where the PUCK has been not to where it's going. When are you going to get ahead of it? Well the prime minister statement was important. And it was candid and that has been is and will be our government's approach the situation. We're going to be honest with Canadians. And the reality. Is that the advice. We are receiving from public health. Experts is that this situation will get worse before it gets better That that is where we are. The reality is also that Canadians are really coming together. In a united national response to this situation a response that is going to put as an absolute priority the health and safety of Canadians. And that is what we are doing. Okay I'm going to presume it that by virtue of that you are skating to where the puck is going not where it's been You Know Carol. I probably shouldn't disclose this but Some advice I gave yesterday to colleagues was exactly that that what we all needed to be doing is skating to where the puck will be and I guess it's very Canadian that perhaps particularly at times of crisis we find hockey. Metaphors are very comforting. Wayne Gretzky thank you exactly exactly. They healthy minister. Thanks for speaking with us. Thank you very much and if I could just say thank you for the work that you are doing and all journalists. They're doing. I think a really important part of our national response is having media which is trusted and which brings expert views expert advice to Canadians absolutely essential. Thanks a lot. Thank you for that vote. Okay by Christiaan. Freeland is the deputy prime minister. We reached her in Ottawa A lot of you out. There are probably practicing that thing. We've come to know as social distancing here at as it happens. We're in the same boat that doesn't mean we're going anywhere. The show as they say must go on and it shall. We know you're relying on us more than ever to keep you informed and force to keep you entertained so we're going to do exactly that but we're also doing our part to stop the spread of Kovic nineteen and keep everyone safe about half. Our staff is working from home and only the people who absolutely have to be in the CBC building are here and Caroline. I fall into that category. Don't worry just like you were practicing good hygiene disinfecting. Our studio giving each other much needed space singing our favorite songs while we wash our hands for the recommended. Twenty five seconds and trying very hard not to touch our faces and just like you were still figuring things out. We're trying to get used to the new normal so if the show sounds we different over the next couple of weeks. That is why. Please bear with us because we are all in this together for You'll likely remember the image from Twenty fifteen. It's impossible to forget. It showed to your old Allen. Kurdi washed up face down on a Turkish beach. He and his family had fled Syria. They were trying to get degrees but the boat. They were on capsized and Alan his brother and his mother died. Allen's father survived now. A Turkish court is holding three men responsible for their role in the deaths that day. They've been sentenced to one hundred and twenty five years in prison. Each according to the New York Times their precise roles have not yet publicly been confirmed. And T- mccurdy is Albuquerque's aunt she lives in. Coquitlam British Columbia. That is where we reached her team of. What was your reaction when you learned of these one hundred twenty five year prison sentences for these men? Yeah to be honest Since the Friday from the phone with my brother Abdullah and He was trying to tell me about Did you hear the news? You know what I'm thinking you know but my brother Abdullah we are really in that tragedy all over again. It's it's good. They put on three people only three people. But this is not going to solve the problem. Vs It gives us a little bit of comes first especially up dollar. Said he recognized only one person. But the way you know to relive dot woman very sad and it's hard to breaking you're talking about your brother Abdul this is the the boy's father Allen's father. He lost that boy who lost his other son. He lost his wife. How how is he doing? You know Right now again it's Brought back so much The memory about what's happened in. Twenty fifteen when he lost his entire family but Hopefully this will prevent people from taking the same journey. Does your brother. He said he could identify one of the people under these smugglers. Who was responsible for putting them into this boat and and this horrible tragedy but can you you tell us anything more about what happened and Has this case brought anymore to light about how this this horrible? This horrible death happened. Yes when I was talking to him he said to me. I have no idea when I saw one of them. You know I recognize them. He said you have no idea. It's took me back to that night. How I we were so desperate that we put our hope in their hunt That time I was really bugging him to know. It's it's very hard for breaking to live and to remember that moment for my especially for my brother that night. You know the way you bug in somebody to say. Please give my family a safety. You put in all your hope in hand and it didn't though I know they don't care about him. They just care about how many people they can sit in both and make money so it's a hard break into live moment again especially for my brother. Upto law you know but again he said this. Is You know three people from speak not work. It's not gonNA stop desperate people from trusting those smugglers me personally. You know I'm responsible for that too. You know by by sent him the money to pay the smugglers you. Don't I feel guilty to but what do you do when you see your family's forgot when you witness the wish in their living and are so desperate like many other people. Patina Corey Chemo. Said you that you blaming yourself is not fair because you would not have sent that money they would not have been on that That raft if there had been more compassion if people had been if the international community had cared for. They were was inactive desperation. They had to get out. So there's a larger circle of blame as they're not it is it is but I cannot help it. I've been living with this guilt for the since twenty fifteen and I'm trying but again sometime out of the spray. Shen people find any route to reach to safety. You know yes. The international community are responsible for the suffering of people in general for me trying to bring them to safety here. She makes some people you know. It was so and possible really impossible to bring them legally to Canada. We talk to you after Allen that you and your family died in that vote and you told us how difficult it had been that the federal government wouldn't help you to to bring them here. So Do you feel that there are others that need to take more responsibility for what happened to Allen to your sister in law? Your other nephew. You know. It's not about The blame in to the point to you know I blame this or that. It's about how the situation right now is getting worse and worse and people continue to suffer and there is no way to go. You know if a free we talk within twenty fifteen when the the world's leader pulled me in person would their tears in their eyes when they thought that emiss- they said this tragedy we'd be the lost one. And what did we we see from it? Yes you know getting. Kinda you know the new government they brought in you know twenty five spoke on people and I cannot think enough. The Canadian People. Who made it happen? But what are we doing? You know those people in power. They forgot about tragedy that image. The image of as you say that the picture of your nephew and under under boy and the beach Of course it affected deeply affected people around the world and the expectation was that that was now going to change. The international response would now change because it was so wrong he was a symbol of that You know the the the question right now. We should ask about our salt. The it's been almost nine years. The war in Syria and people continue to suffer. Now urgent time you know taking refugees. It's a great but it's not the solution. The solution to end all of the to bring peace you know and twenty in September second at Twenty fifteen. The image of Allen Kersey was the wakeup call to the world and today in the news with the cutoff is another wakeup call to the world. All of us we need. We need to be united and think about the other. People who really struggle or software enter now team is really good advice for people to bear in mind to to try and help others and again. I say to you please. Don't blame yourself. I think that you you did everything you could and and continue to and I really appreciate it to speak with us today. Thank you my pleasure. Thank you bye-bye T- mccurdy is Ellen. Curtis and she spoke to us from Coquitlam British Columbia road. The party's over yesterday. The Quebec government ordered that bars theaters gyms Ski Hills Sugar Shacks and Arcades all shut down amid Cova at one thousand nine hundred years and now other jurisdictions are heating those calls to Toronto's top health officials recommended today that bars close and that restaurants offer takeout. Only our guest has already closed up his popular restaurant but it was no easy decision. Chris White is the CO owner of brothers. A restaurant in downtown Toronto Chris. At what point did you realize this weekend that you should close your restaurant? Think Saturday mid evenings we had A Nice Service but notice to shift in the VIBE for sure. Wouldn't even changing the VIBE. What what what. What were you referring going to? We work with a small community of regular. We're pretty lucky and Everyone came out to support in. It was a really beautiful that they did. So but you know against Sir Middle Aged. You're older at the conversations that were Slightly more boisterous the days leading up. Turn to pretty general worry and even into what we you know responsibility. I'd say so so this you're doing this civic responsibility. It's not a business decision it sits. It's a community thing that you're responding the worst business decision I've ever made We were very worried that you know we're trying not to personalized that everybody's GonNa feel this in this people that were soft but this is very scary Fiscally for sure but we're part of a really amazing community of people that we want to lead the pack. I guess but lead the pack so you feel that others should do what you're doing. They should be shutting down there bars and restaurants absolutely. I mean it's I see both sides of it and I totally get. I have peers that have yet to make the decision but Less and less so on Saturday. It seemed like we were ahead of the curb by the end of the day. The bulk of the restaurants. I live and breathe thorough down now. I spoke with someone in the restaurant business on the weekend. Toronto who said that he wanted to see the government order the bars and restaurants closed as they have another countries and as we saw happening Quebec. That was what was required that leadership from the government. So why would that be necessary? Why would not disclose down on their own volition physically speaking? Everyone wants to know that they're making a decision. It'll protected in my biggest worry. Right now is that I was under the impression that today we were going to get the that exact news and to find out that almost nothing said two levels of government are essentially making soft suggestions rather than an order. I mean how does this work if everyone shuts down on volition insurance mortgage rent employment. I mean I laid off twenty people today. Ask all of whom are. I'm sure quite worried as well. There needs to be some protection here at new. We heard on Friday. The announcements of sums of money in the billions for a credit for businesses for For ability to sort of be remained solvent to access different programs. That have are yet to be fleshed out. Will you have access to that if you have done this voluntarily? That's a great question and something. I'm currently quite worried about. I have no idea and we. We run day to day as it is and Luckily to our best to not acquire much debt. But we're a thirty seat restaurant downtown and we at this point or looking if we were to reopen in the first half of April. We're looking at losses you know upwards of two hundred thousand dollars. I'd love somebody to stand up and say we're going to figure this out and the first step is to stop so far. No one's done that. We were hearing stories of restaurants doing some other creative things. Some are becoming community kitchen for the homeless the distilleries in the US were making hand. Sanitizers giving you any ideas certainly. We're talking a lot about beer right now. But we've reached out to our core group regulars especially some of them that are older. Am WE WANNA make sure that they have access to everything they need in the coming weeks said that we are still here can help worse small business and I think that's the way we can be the most effective. I've heard a few peers with larger kitchens. Larger operations talking about different opportunities to help restructure their businesses. Well and at some point. Maybe that's an option for us the product that we put out in the way that we work is Pretty focused and not something that we really usually put in a box. So that'd be a different moment is now tomorrow as you know is Saint Patrick's Day big day for bars and restaurants. If they're not told to close and concerned that the the civic responsibility is not being not being shared by maybe patrons absolutely I mean. It's super scary to think that we were standing in a smaller. Pack here baking decision. You know I'm also quite concerned that the government has delayed more serious announcement to protect this holiday way. I really hope that that's not the case. It's time for everyone to stay home period you know. What's the prime minister said today and And so how do you think of how Canadians Torontonians are responding to this crisis? You know in our Media Peer Group in our community. It seems like in the last twenty four hours The the conversations released shift to how we can take care of each other. You Know I. It's kind of devastating that we are hoarding. Lysol wipes And New our friend sending videos from their portraits in Italy. They're thinking to each other. I mean It's we really need to step up her or play game here okay. That's that great line. Chris will leave it. Thanks so much. I hope things work out for you. Thanks Carol all right by Chris. White is the CO owner of Brothers Restaurant in downtown Toronto. We reached him earlier today. It's typically not news when a town or city purchases a new piece of recreational equipment. But this time was different. Mike Hicks who works for the municipality of soup. Bc recently ordered a fancy new machine from New Zealand designed to scoop up goose poop officially. It's called a toe and collect machine but that name didn't really catch on poop. Zamboni seemed a better fit. It was all fun and Games until the ice resurfacing company Zamboni called. They told Mr Hicks too. Kindly stop linking their company to feces the company's Vice President of sales and brand management. Greg Dean told local radio station quote as you can imagine the connotation of a poop Zamboni is not really something we want to have out there and quote. Here's Mr Hicks conversation. Last week with Carol who drops the Zad word more often than Manhattan than Mr Does? Mike why did your town need a poop is at well? We have a real goose problem on on the west coast and especially Suk. There's a couple of hundred geese at any one time on a field where the kids play soccer and eat goose. Let's go about three pounds of a poop. Every day at night I discovered a machine in New Zealand. That would clean up the POOP. And that's what we were doing right now. Okay so what's been happening at Veneta since you before you had the Poop Zam and you had these three pounds per that. Many kids couldn't play. Oh they played. Everyone dragged all the poop back to their houses in the cars. It's just a mess. How did you convince the town to to buy this? We have gas tax funds. It Prime Minister Trudeau says to us for infrastructure. And we're also allowed to use it for recreational equipment. If you think think what would you think prime minister destined to with think if he knew spending that money on a poop? Sam I think he amongst more than anyone would be delighted. He has two kids to play soccer. I bet anyways he always get me one of those things for field in Ottawa. That was Mike Hicks speaking to Carol last week about his poops them. I mean tow and collect machine. Social distancing is all the rage. We've mentioned it today on this show a number of times but in Kingston Ontario over the weekend hundreds of students either didn't get the memo or they just ignored it. Despite multiple warnings Queens University students flooded onto a street for a Saint Patrick's Day parade party on Saturday. And here's what some students had to say sticks. I self medicate you worried that gatherings like this will potentially spread the virus yet. You know what? I'm not worried I know it will like it's not like it's not it's not. That's not a question because obviously it will definitely spread the disease but not all parties need to be in person Ashley. Mcisaac thinks he's found a creative solution. The Cape Breton fiddler. Had his own gigs cancelled up to July. Because of the corona virus and that prompted him to organize something called a quarantine. Kaley we reach Mr mcisaac in Windsor Ontario. Actually what's your idea for a quarantine? Kaley it's pretty simple. A lot of people are going to get bored of watching reruns and and And continuing to see how many times they can watch stranger things on. That's what what was the next couple of months. I figured as artists that perform across the country go to communities all the time. Have that life feeling with people That is shared both from the audience and the stage. That's something like that would work very well right now. On the Internet we're physicians. We're used to traveling. We can't do it. People can't come out to see our shows so we're going to bring it to your living room. Walk us through how this happens. You're aiming April first right. Yeah April I will be the first broadcast joke. The April fool's Day. So you are going to do this. Obviously if if it if it goes If it goes sideways I'll have to say performance and no. There's everything is coming together nicely. I've been very fortunate to to meet no a lot of decisions and entertain resulted in Canada and other places. And it's not just as you know in Canada already spoke to some of my friends in New York are like can we be on the next episode I go. Let's just get the first one running out now you of course you said you've met allow all these people are many of them but you won't be able to meet them now right. You're not going to be in the same room together presume while that's it You know one of the musicians. Who First and foremost I called. Is George Canyon Georgia Canadian superstar? He just came back from Costa Rica so he was self isolating and he said I'd love to be able to perform. They said you know. We're not looking to be as high quality as the great variety performances and shows that. Cvc has done as far as technically is concerned. We're not going to be doing three camera. Shoot he'll be in his home sitting in his home studio maybe with an iphone and sitting with his wife nearby and and performing some of the songs. We'LL HAVE MY SISTER. Who's out on the road right now? Trying to get back from Scotch along with group called Madison Violets. I'm going to hopefully be able to go live to the Yukon where I was supposed to perform this week. And is it all goes. Well be some opportunities where hike in play and they can play and we could mashes together. If we can't operate that live we will do some tape stuff but more than likely this'll be live off the floor like Kaley supposed to be okay and definitely can't indication but in this case many kitchens medications. I'M GONNA put myself in a club in Halifax so that we can It'll be close to public but be able to set up the video switching and not take the stuff I thought. Okay I want some central place to be a host of and you know making have the feel of the show they out to sea. You'll be the old triangle in Halifax. I think it's GonNa go over very well. Okay but you're not just doing this to entertain us which we definitely need at this point but this is also a way to raise some funds for those artists who are not getting out and about so. How is that going to work? I just lost all my work between now and July every musician. That's out there. Makes their living on live touring these days and I've done it for years. You know since I was a kid. So when you're all of a sudden put in a position where you don't have a platform performed for people you know. In the past it was only large artists like Madonna David Bowie. These people could Garner enough audience to make a pay per view event happening. So at this point it's GonNa be a very nominal fee. We're hoping it'll be you know. Four or five six dollars to be able to access the download and sit around the living room and watch this live. Show six bucks to watch the show and You got your own beer exactly and you know you don't you don't have to get dressed up. I play theater shows. I've played club shows. Play everything in between you can sit home in your underwear and watch the case. Okay now how you had some response. You are expecting more because you're just getting started. Is this going to kind of this kind of really? Pick up steam as people hear about it. I hope so. I know people want to be entertained because I did my living for so many years. So in this period of time where every time you turn on the TV. We're GONNA have to see this tragic event that's unfolding an awful lot of live news stories. That are not the best so to give people an opportunity to see something entertaining and fun. I hope it gets the ball rolling and if it works well why not if we need to do it on. May First June first and then there's Canada Day. I'm hoping that people take the opportunity to watch it and enjoy it and it becomes a platform for Canadian artist who want to actually appear in front of their fans in their home on Wednesday nights and enjoy what to see. Okay so right now you got a lot of people are shut in. And they are bored and depressed and they need to get up on their feet and dance. So what's what's the best cut for? That would give us a music recommendation. We can play now. Well you know I've been thinking what would be the opening song for this thing and I thought it was going to do home. I'll be by reading McNeil but it's that passionate song and I think I might close the show with that so I decided for the opening number. I'M GONNA have to do the Gilligan's island theme because clearly that's the the original quarantine zone. Okay ones funny. The other one will make us cry. What about something from fire in the kitchen? You know if you WANNA play some Celtic music I would suggest playing Something by Oh any new land and is always fun to listen to. What about yourself cut from you? Oh well if you want something of mine She's I don't even know 'cause I I just play all year how `bout you try to. I don't know okay so you got on the kitchen entertaining that that sounds like a good one if if you trust me if I might choose one of my own if we don't we don't like that one. I'm sure we will but will you might choose one of our own work. We'll take your recommendation in any event we're going to get up and dancing so thank you. Thanks for gave me the chance to tell the people that were with us of your at home were were entertainers and we feel onstage. What it's like to feel the human connection and we can't lose that even if we can't leave our homes Goodwin Ashley thank you. Thanks Carol. By Ashley mcisaac is a fiddler from Cape Breton.

No, no, it has to be terrible. And being a religious field helps to being in the same religious. You know, make us this not every day. You see things that bad, right? True. Don't miss happy should is so bad. I put out to support keep making it Hollywood movies men as making. Master. That's every week. You'll get good movies from Hollywood and you'll sleep, you know, they make some bad ones. But they got this death. It takes real genius to make something as bad as things that. I see what you're gonna do on Saturday. What's what is two movies and won the won at ten o'clock is a religious movie and the other one is claim -ation who that's a hard one at eleven AM is is religious is a faith base. And the one eleven is. I think it might even be argument. But it's it's a claymation Martin you nor learn the ammunition. I know I know but crazy Jesus kind of good. Hard when I have to think about that. Until then though, let's go ahead and take a look once more at the trailer for the eagerly anticipated should Zan. My God turn hill. And then we'll be back. You heard his review? So you coming back with my review? The bass cheese. So my power Spokane oars. Okay. Kersey right. Superpower's, dude. I don't even know how to be in this thing. Visit group of authenticity. Straight. D'electricite manipulations. Hyperspeed? I'd like to purchase some of your finest beer, please. Kathy sparkle fingers nose. Not. That's not my name. Chosen one. Like a backup. Usually the opposite of what a superhero supposed to do. You're him. You're the hero. You're welcome for notgetting. Basically fifteen. Yeah. You let cute a bus almost killed these people. Then I thought it. Tall buildings in a single bound. Oh, man. You know, what love is trailer. First of all, I've I've loved all the trailers that they put a I in one of the things that made me love it. I was just watching this is late dams. Hans we really like this boys black dead. When he was. A plan. Wiz. It could have been really it was. Much apple. My name. I play what you. You've got the Negron long. All right. But man, let me tell you something about this. Now, if you wanna see the other review that we did it's on it's on our site on edited uncensored in his on YouTube edited and since it a little bit, and you can go watch that this one. And you know, I'm sure Martin is going to chime in. But I'll be giving a y'all like man live mom gives. I gave my opinion. I he did he was still chime in. But this will be mostly me talking about it weighing against his opinion down just curious how you felt about it. Yeah. Now, we before we start the we'll give you a little bit of a preview of Martin's review by having Martin tell you what his review was his rating for sure Sam was I believe I gave it a very high matinee their matinee. Yeah. All right. And Martin in Mearns words to me. He was so confident I would feel like he's like because I said, oh, man. Oh martin. I wish it could have been higher. I had hopes that this movie matinees good. But I have some hopes. All you see watch saying things that I didn't like an liked man. We have so much in communist on. It's going to be the same for you. Let's go ahead and see that he said all of them are no it might have been edited out. But you said okay enough link. Okay. All right time. But you said. You'll words your words. Exactly. Martin was that you was it was almost like I it was used in here sounded like yourself. Okay. But people go video and you come back and cut it out. But let me tell you for my review. Now, it's going to sound kind of vague. But this movie is Micra cheeked is based on three different parts are how how how this movie work dot in three different ways for me. Okay. Because. Is one part? Great amazing. Then his second parts of. It's it's good. Not great. But but good, and then there's a third part that it's an it's just personal for me that I just think is terrible. And it's just the thing. I hate my see movies and aided here. Okay. I that that that does not contradict how I felt. And you know, which is which is why couldn't it might contradict. What parts though might not be the same thing. But there's one thing in here that that that for movie that has some parts that are that are great some things that are. Agreed. This man for move that some some parts great there things in here. That thing that I hate it does worse than any. I've seen. Was amazed on like anybody. Can't do the city that I've seen the ways that I've seen it done and other movies. But they did it. Did you got me on the edge of my seat? Wondering what this is for you. I'll tell you a little bit Martin. But you know, again, you know, me start up positives, man. Of course, always start out. Great. This. I haven't watched a lot of Zam. I dunno ally, Zam, lore and mythology. Emma, read a lot of books, you actually don't need to because this is taken not so much from all the old shows and stuff this is brand new M series. That's only three issues old. And most of this is based on that. Okay. Because what little I have seen this because what I am actually anxious. Am kind of bad as me not even knowing that much about him. I didn't even know she was a kid at one time. Even watched the Saturday morning show. Do you knew that what he was kind of like a teenager? I didn't know that. He was like like a like a like a preteen. No, our are fifteen fifteen. Okay. Fifteen but APPA got a lot of times that he was he was actually a kid. And then when I realized he was a kid. I was like, okay. You know, what a lot of the of the the versions of Zan that I've seen did not do what this movie did which makes him seem like a kid. That's the thing. Having him be have the mind of a kid when he's captain marvel that didn't come around really until the Justice league cartoon see and even with some of the okay, the Justice league may seen some of that. But I've seen some I've seen look I've seen some fights which open up like, I don't know. What is with him superman, but they got they got be. I think that's his next man. Chris like, boy, if you will if you were legal to be all on that. My man over here bad ass. But but I've seen some fights with them and even an invest the thing man when he becomes a captain marvel. He's just sounds like he's just another man right to the point where he's even talking corny like somebody's dead. You know, his his his dialogue just becomes bad. Like like like a like a man trying to act tough. You've never been any good against matching. Matches. What I'm all about? Got. Late. You know them punches kind of hurt, but you killing me with. Batman going to be like damn you. Let to your. Focal. A you. I was busy fighting the dos. Washes, billy. And if you ever. He knocked to. I know it tried to sell like a man to oh, you thought you knew about magic. Then you fuck you. Well, you know, Billy west lot of mighty mouse. But man, but now that they've actually captured him being a kid in a man's body. This is so much fun. Yeah. You know, in in really the thing about making him a kid in a man's body makes the movie really acceptable for people who who might be tired of superhero right in especially ones that take themselves. So seriously, like like, there's a reason why people are comparing it to this movie. Sure. Sure. That. Wiz. That was a that was a shitty wish. Twentieth Century, Fox presents. Thanks. If you know this. This is I never saw this movie was retarded. Pretty much. Yeah. Become a look it up. So he wasn't all day when he was a kid put them in a mass by, but you know, that's that's. That's what's that's what's so great about this is that, you know, and by the way with this. We're talking about the movie big with Tom Hanks, which is a classic. They knew that that that movie resonated with people. So well, they did they just pretty much ripped it off. And they knew it too. Like, they they try to play in a Mayes in this knob, which we rip this off. Right. I mean by the time, they do the almighty is you like, yeah. We got it. Yeah. Exactly. It tried to put up as an imaginary. Now we stole this which you going to do about. Washes movies you here now. Watches move. That's what you're going to do. But. You know, it's you know, they've made accessible for audiences by making a comedy with. That's pretty much big what a Cape bigwig powers. And of course, just like Tom Hickson that movie it takes a person to really capture. That childlike attitude and Zachary Levi, he's pervert, he he did a great job with this, man. This. You know, it would be nuts. This move will be this movie. Would I'm not gonna say it would be bad. But to not have an act like him. It definitely would be taken down notch. Man. Like, you could probably think of some comedic actors who could do this kind of thing. But not who have that kind of stature and a willing to at least get buff enough to pull it off. Yeah. And that's the thing. He's not just a guy like us. You know, he's up Neal swollen as would a man's with a with a child with a child's mentality. Let me say child, of course, like I say he's about fifteen years old. And I love Acura relieve on this because he catches that. So well. I think thing is I used to used to Zachary Levi why 'cause used to hang out them damn chipmunks. Oh, man. I. And that's another thing y'all because y'all think that this is this is new for him y'all think like oh him catch capturing this this child like mentality. Now, the fools. I always been kinda militarized. In word awesome. But you know, that's how. How are you man? Yes, he ain't doing nothing. But another version of the stone Zachary Levi that you saw with the chipmunks and just by and just by sociation with these chipmunks. I couldn't stand him come on. Now is that? That's how busters you never watched. Chuck. He was Chuck was a great show. And he was awesome in it. You know, what did they have any woodchucks talking with? Okay. All right. No rodents because my eyes seen shut. But all I know is he was hanging out in chipmunks. And if you friend the chipmunks, you enemy of mine, I can stand a much hate them goddamn chipmunks, man. But with this. I saw with Zachary Levi was bring into this. And believe me anybody. Because even I'm saying he was already doing something like this before even though is saying that he was already kind of a goofy guy because that's what because that's what this is too. Was just you know, he's just saying he's being like a kid, but he's just being kind of goofy to but it's beyond that. Because one thing you have to think about here is that Zachary Levi could easily have played this as a man child. Yeah. Can you imagine? We'll feral have played this will fare just saying dumb shit is carried watched. Br. Br this character for stepbrother ten to city and a Cape said dumps it all the Sudas hurting, my crack. Yeah. It's just young yelling like likely will Tom Cruise welfare would not have been a male with a with a teenager's mentality. He would have been a mentally challenged superhero. Right, which actually sounds awesome. But that's. That's. Enough of this thing, James. In trouble. Then you make retarded movie longtime. Let me see here. But. You know? You to see Zachary Levi do this. It's not because he's not playing a man shot. He what he's doing is. He's actually on multi spend time together. I don't know if he if he actually basis performance off this actor, but he must have. But it looks like he just kinda was shadowing mimicking trying to actually conjure up is co star what which is Asher angel here. Yeah. That's that's one of the things. I thought was so great about his performance is that he wasn't just playing a child in a man's body. Like just any random child. He felt like he could be that same. Yeah. Archer angel as Billy Batson from the Disney channel, right? Thank you with. Disney's are they all gonna affect this? He gets a piece like when they get off the bus at the bus station. The mouse is waiting station not they grown these kids in the labs. Tired of dealing with parents. Let me get around us. Farm. The island. That's the most sinister thing I've ever the kids of Disney the children of Disney. That I did. You'll never get. That should. Let me, but you know. I got we're talking about Zachary Liebau so much, but really he Zachary Levi brings the comedy it really is arched Asher angel as Billy Batson who's bringing the motion part of the story here, man, he some bads. Billy, bad shoot. But he's he's the he's the real heart of the movie, man. There's this historic arc like you kind of forget about it. But it was in my head. I was like wait a minute this kind of fishy. And when he finally come back to it. I was like oh damn with their man, you you you probably watch the movies see him as some sort of bratty kid nominee. There's there's a reason wisit shows is wisdom just tired tired. But you know, that where where historic goes it's heartbreaking it. I mean, seriously man is almost almost feel like it's out of another movie. That's exactly what I said. It felt like it was from a different movie plant around. It's all fun time and everything and get around to that. And you like the fuck I mean. I mean. Brought tears to my eyes. It was hard, man. I really this kid is great at this, man. I mean that just says so much about him as as an actor so between act that, you know, actual captain marvel Sam Disney like, hey, hey, hey, hey, what's his name? That straight. He we already the screw call that one time in their mouths behind me. Right. Not negro that movie came out three weeks ago. What is the name this movie? I hear you. But. But you know. Know, whether you watching the Zach Zach relieve is bringing the comedy Asher angel is bringing the drama he's bringing the emotion to this. And with those two cares care does together being pretty much the same character. It's it's it's it's a lot of great things there in the story that is almost almost too good for for for movie like this Sylla's movie late this. But I'm not saying I'm glad they put it in there. Or is it more dimension? Yeah. I'm just saying I'm glad that they took it that a lot of people could've easily written off are just are just made it like something that just talked about. Yeah. Yeah. But you know, in in in the supporting cast is really good in this too. The kid that the. Got his name kit that plays. Freddy Freeman I know see that's the same thing when I was talking about forgot his name is Jackson. Yeah. This kid is funny. He's rate. He's. Yeah. He's he's the the stepbrother slash best friend of Billy Batson. And I love him. He's funny. You look you look at it look at them spasm that. You can see why these bills beat is as every day because he just talks way too much. But I love the character. I like a lot man. No. Of course, you liked the character and over time, you can see how he would be annoying to people, but come on man, these bullies. I'll get into it a little bit. Okay. This. But I mean. Yeah, the bullies. But I like the way people actually like man, you talk so much. We have no compassion for you at all. Yeah. We know you cripple. Wishing your or your in you cripple. Should we wish your mouth was crippled right now talk to way fucking much? Billy minute. I built like an asshole. But you see Billy just kind of just trying to get away from his kid. This kid is just all his ads. Battery for him and Billy buke ac- Billy so cool villages wants as a points about shut the fuck up break, you other gun. That. Now, you bring that up Billy's not all that cool because he's he stealing shit for just just just to do it. I understood why later. But after a while, you know, this kid, he really is fun. I gotta say, yeah, he he's he's so much of what propels the movie. Yeah. And it would be easy again to this to this actors to Zach actress credit, this is something that could have been it could've been annoying. It could have been a character. Depend on what after they got that. Just couldn't rub. You the wrong way. But this kid is so charming. He's funding. He pulled it off. So well in it that I think he he knows how to do. Yeah. And to me all the best scenes are when it's him and she's AMT together. Yeah. No, you're right about that. But can I love the love the other kids? I know you weren't crazy about the well, I didn't kiss in the in the what is the group home foster foster home. I didn't dislike them I just I just thought we got to go like, oh, well, they're this type and their this type in their this type and not spend a lot of time with them, and they end up being very important to the movie later on. I'd see I like them early on because there's a. The foster home place so much into how feel about this movie. First of all, I love there's okay, some there's there's one kid that. I don't even know why he's there. I know. I think he's there just because they need him to fill some space for something later, but the but the other kids doing a rainbow coalition we need somebody of this race. So yeah, yeah. And they hint that he's gay too. So. Just like come on, man. No, they just they just crammed a gay Mexican for no reason. But but the other kids are like, especially the little girl faith Herman is the little girl's name, the actor's name actress name she and they look manipulative because they make our hugger they say in the movie, she's a hug, and she's so Sweden outdoor her. I thought she was she's very cute. No, she she is so cute, man. And in a love of. In the foster home. I also like the the foster parents a lot man. Yeah. Right. She's so used to foster parents being one way. And it's like, oh, these people are totally cool. This is the first time movie where the foster parents weren't using them for free labor paychecks cooking eating the where the foster parents weren't evil the foster parents play by Cooper, Andrews and Marta Milan's. And you know, they young cool that kinda hip, and they really do love the parents. They were foster kids themselves at one time. So they know how it is. And mom is fine. As fuck. That was a line. Was like this, man. Get this way. It makes you mad you hit. 'cause 'cause I say she looked like she she. Of. Oh, what is the what's what's her name? I said wait, I got it. She looks like a thick Angelina Jolie. Exactly. When you say, she looks like Angelina Jolie that eats. I thought through me mean. And I said man like a Angeline eat shit. Gave Angelina Jolie a couple of sandwich. Yeah. You'll get this right here. Yeah. I like how did anybody? Give yours. Hill. Trying to beat look I ain't trying trying to be perfect. But it was just like. See what I see? I mean, I'm a man. Okay. Yeah. I'm a man. Look, I touched sexual harassment. Look, we what was it wrong to say. Somebody would find it ain't it will be in a couple of years. But for right now, we can say, well, you know, what go ahead collect his right now play this a company. Look at the video that there when I'm working on gardens the galaxy ten they find me. Fun. I don't care. I said it a non wrong with admiring. And I want to Mark my words, and we get to that point. I hope this does my career in find as fuck. It was worth it. And they were good to know. Yeah. That was so good acting. I mean, I guess. All I know. We. You know, she made me feel all right? Trying to leave his home. Cooper Andrews is from Walking Dead. Is he? Yeah. Okay. He's really he's really good, man. All right looks at you say was Zeke us right hand, man. Yeah. Okay. Sherry. King Hezekiah, call them Jerry bring me my goblet. But. Yeah, the and that foster home, we showed this clip lasy. I'm not sure it again. It's when you. And that foster home is where you see a lot of the heart of the movie come out again the parents that loving. You know, you have you see a bit more Billy Batson when he's at the home and how he starting to break in with the family. Let me see if I can actually fine bring it back because they're like, oh, it's so great to have you here. And he's like get the fuck off me. Yeah. You still mean? Like the little girl MAC, you break this little girl's heart light this like like a little girl. She goes up to hug him. She have a good day big Bradley lay fucking brother, right? What did you do? Is that in the comics also that he's like that? Good, man. I like it. They'll have to give me a minute one pull up this clip here. I do want to do a show that give me a second. Here. We showed it last week. But just in case, this is the review that you'll have seen first time might say fuck it 'cause I came on. Oh, here we go here. It is right here. I just wanna show this. This is one of my favorite scenes in the movie. And again, this is where you see a lot of interaction with the kids. Also, one of the parts you get to see where his powers, which are great start to be a problem. Like whenever you say, Suzanne, you've got to be on the middle of of fields. Because you don't kill about five people. But told you. About stout. What happened to the stairs? Ks facing? Kill him. A number. Is going to help me cover. Kidnapper is not gonna make less scared. Okay. Darlings? It's billy. I know. I don't look like me a wizard made me look. Wizards confused, so mold guy brought me to a temple. And he made me say him. Fergal triggered body manipulation properties. Sangster's AM. Was that you. Screwing of bulb. Darla. You cannot tell anybody about this, right? He's a hero for Subaru in the hero that dangerous us. Okay. Here's loved ones are like the perfect bag target. She even go to keep secrets moderate. Gotta go. I'm sorry. Just boston. Anyway. They'll just they'll just get another words. Your. Bringing a little black girl. Give him a couple of days, but not this suite with the kids, and man, even with the even have eighteen year old that I like could play these all these people the Bill is the one asked on trust kind of. To be kind of cool. But I love how the pro-trade this foster home with the day. They all love each other, man. It's the first foster time first time I've seen it with actual love. It makes you realize it's the first time you see it. Yeah. And it kinda pisses you off. Yeah. It's kind of like, no I saw when I heard things how this was going to be with the foster all month. I heard like they really love John's like love what love to abuse love to love to hate these kids. Not actually really cool with these kids man is nice. You know in a rounding out the cast here. What are we talking about the supporting cast? Jima Hans Soo really like him for the moment that he's any the first you start playing up like Zima Hossam does we just ios everything? But it got to point I love that wizard because he's trying to find the right person. And finally, he just he doesn't need anybody. He just like I'm ready to go. I pick, you know, more like he just wants to be out. Like he really wasn't picky. He just gone. Like this runaway foster kid fine kids. You do. I'm tired. And I love also how they they slightly bring in science behind. I'm not gonna tell you how many bringing a little bit of science behind. What the wizards exam is doing, but I really liked it. There was one of the things that thought was cool is that it goes to show you that is no perfect person out there because he spends years the point just kind of look I'm out this bitch. I can't take this the. Yeah, you. That's that's why he told us saying saying God, not ready to go. Zima I laughed about that too. I I wish he'd been in more too. I mean, I understand the way the story works that wasn't and to bring him back with the been cheesy almost every other movie. Does it would you know shit? I got a Mava chick. Things. I was I was lighting. Bigwig on me. Nico's? He my name out of credit. Made him a fish man with. Just let them be a man. But. I the switching modes into just the good stuff. Now, you know, not great. But good the superhero stuff. I thought was thought was okay. Yeah. I didn't. I didn't think it was. I didn't think it was great to anything like that mainly because now they do something great with it. You know, because they showed things, and you probably saw one the trailers they show like what the reason why say because it's typical superhero stuff, you know, they just happen to conveniently be at a convenience store that gives robbed some women's getting mugged and they're just conveniently nearby. Well, how many times in your in your life and your forty plus years that you've seen of convenience store robbery or somebody just get mugged and I live next to the project Waco where there was a convenience store conveniently between me the projects neighborhood. So yeah, I ain't never been. But sometimes I wanted to be a superhero, I just wanna test to that one hung around could be the most boring thing in the world. See what people hate to that. That's what the star just like I wish them by his place.

Work well nine years ago to the month of May Dave wrote a book for our publishing arm at the time. Kersey Bucks and was called a thousand songs that rocked your world a thousand songs that rocker world and it was basically a list of what Dave in his peers. He pulled a lot of his peers in the music industry of what their top thousand songs from rock classics. One hit wonders What were A and why. And you'll be surprised. Probably about even the top five will talk to Dave and go over them. But it's a lot of fun especially in this time quarantine to get a book like this. It's still available on Amazon. And it's well designed and like. I said it's a lot of fun. Keep your mind off of things. Music is always a great wonder as far as escapism. But we'll be right back after this message.

Podcast episode because not only because of the subject matter. You put out a book through Crosby. Almost almost nine years actually was nine years ago this month. Yeah Thousand Songs that rock your world from rock classics to one hit wonders to music. That lights her fire and was paperback and had two thousand songs. I thought it was a lot of fun So I thought I thought we'd go over it because it's still available out there available. Amazon and other bookstores. Many people could still pick it up and have You don't play along to play. The songs along to your words actually tried to do that. One did you. Yeah did you make okay While I was putting together I thought well I really need him all these songs. So I just went through my record collection went through downloads and just old one thousand of them And I have to admit I disagree with every song in there. I pulled various friends and other people. I Wa- should be in the what springsteen song for instance I don't know any other I listening through it. Some of it was great. Savvy as I I agree one hundred percent the beings book some of it and I'm not going to say because it'll upset teletype bans but some of them. Some of the things played. How was this record even made? So what what what? Readers need to understand. It wasn't just your favorite thousand psalms you pulled. It was cheap mind. I was just given cops on Two thousand seven so you think everybody should know I love and I'm arrogant enough. I do that then. You pulled people. Were you know you saw wearing fluential? there's areas. That is it. I don't really know American rock in the seventies or eighties that So is I. I can't tell by Florida's apart for by Arias Soup dragons from I. Whoever older spend Saturdays Horan rocking out to ten nugent? Strangely sadly friends did say so unites. Tape UTERUS JOVTCHEV CAT SCRATCH. Fever they say In exactly that voice and best of salt best oreos steam pipes. That's the one. That's the one band dry out of the room. Not Not so much. The early ours speedwagon. But the the ballots that came in the eighties. I know you're locking. Don't don't remain ignorant. That's the best way for bliss. Tried and I mean I do enjoy. You'll let us get CETERA. I love that stuff limits skin. It remind me of wishbone Ash. I've always got time for them. But that whole wave of the Orios rush. I know they're Canadian or whatever All that fat. Those they've been very little in England and as I was so you've seen the name of the paper just to call what's a city name for a band much prefer a tiger. Those bleeds and I completely missed out on them. I didn't even really kiss until I wrote a book about them. In nineteen eighty four eighty five. That's pretty remarkable. But but what what's fun here is that You had a section here called the top five and these are the top five songs you explain it. The top five songs ever written and recorded and not one of them is bridge over troubled water. Hey Jude Rolling Stone or any of those you would think would be in the top five including John Lennon and Paul McCartney's numbers I guess you wanted to set it straight. That wouldn't be. He thought it would be. It would top five or even top ten be. Would you thought it would be? That was. That was deliberate because if I was going to buy a book with the title like that a thousand Brady songs ever and was Oh. It's the same ones as everybody else says. Nice surprise you. That's what makes it fun and what I WanNa do is play a little sample of the top five and you can explain why you picked these For the top five or why you think they deserve to be in the top five So I'll start off woods. The number one which is bus. Stop by Harley's which came out in nineteen sixty six. You can get it on the hollies greatest heads but you thought this was basically the songwriting. That was not just the musicianship but the songwriting itself. Shell bus stop. She stays rose. Joy is be read by a a row grand. Gouldman I think is one of the great songwriters of the sixties and seventies especially when he was rising on his What is the Tennessee? State is right. There exists to it that was Goldman. Had this funding this whole edgy. Very English I think but it was beautifully eccentric and he would just do things with melody and with lyrics that you did not expect and even as a child I mean I was five when that came out by remember just loving that song and not really know why it was it just struck me very strange and even now when I hear it. It always surprises me. Maybe does it has to do with the every day. It's something that everyone experiences and he's also is such a simple song but it's very complicated as well. I've been it is just beautiful and that lyric wasn't a partially written by his father climbing love. I think that he he explains it. Go ahead I've used to help him. Right yeah says here. His Dad used to help them lyrically but the fact that he was writing on a bus himself and this kind of came to him gasping. I mean that's such a great story as well and easy so beautifully Monday. Study a bust of sharing enough throw somebody. It is something everyone relate to and yet he made it seem like like you said beautifully mundane and it's funny because of in keeping with the solve the mood of day of the death of Film Day yesterday The pretty things on SRO that is a psalm. That is thematically is race over a spoken word passage and she said good morning which is very similar to bus. Stop easiest the car spill Phil. What a was your mind in each loft. Did you make that? I think he will fill disagreed with you. So the second pick which. I really agree with you. This should be in the top five season of the witch by Donovan When menace sites to see and when when so many different people to be stray you got you got you got every must be a Donovan deserves more credit in the Roth rural this both so I mean he's definitely got credit but he really does. I'm an unfortunate when he read interviews with him that he takes the credit. I suppose pulled ways for people to give it to him but I I agree with everything he says about his brilliant set his influence and he was another one just but just for a moment there was three or four year period but he couldn't write anything bad and even when you listened back to solve Susan the which was staggering as very mature for his age. But this is something like I love my shirt and that also has there's just something about is I nothing song of embarrassing by it because I love it. I think it's wrong is just so it's so dumb. But you could see. He was getting at and he would see why well season of the which I think was just. That is the melody and the mood of the lyrics. I think I agree. I have to have swapped. Culture has done to as well because there are so many books movies. Tv shows cool season of the witch. And they're like slightly scary and sun is really about the supernatural. But it feels like he should be does does in fact you hear it in horror movies and thrillers of as a soundtrack and I think you're right about the riff. The Guitar Riff is pure. Feel it just Cherry yeah and it's funny because that's one of his songs that a lot of people have covered on board one nine so I just sat around on Youtube have played every version season the which I could find and nobody ever was really able to mess it up right even like the most horrible version. You can see the still sean road but probably nobody did it as well as to stun of studio session. My favorite is the junior school bridled eight minutes. I think six minutes something like that and very so I have a dog and heavy. Just like you'd expect you to be shooting. Schools Voice of that is probably one of her best performances. How many sides to see. How can manage different to the stern show? Mr You stay you stay you can. Can you find that on the transients Style of interns on every compilation. But there was something special about this studio session and sixty six Jimmy page. Correct page Brian or guys Sonny Boy Williamson. That was just a sunny boy was in England at the time and That the Trinity's manager was Sonny Boy. He retorted Jimmy's GonNa be there. Why don't you go down? So they just went in and jammed. Basically and it was amazing. How Donovan and beginning these Great Studio Musicians Jimmy? Page was a studio musician at the time and it was managed to manage. Everything by mouse is that he knew everybody in. The industry seemed to have a website racism that they work for Jacks so number. Three in the Book Is Jungle. Land by Bruce Springsteen nineteen seventy serves a US. And that's off the album. You said you are in such a big bruce springsteen fan but this was the song mentioned by a lot of your peers. Yes yeah In particular I had a very dear friend. Gosh late seventies early eighties. There was ten cross. Mike Oldfield spent and I used to go to face it and it's a mess around any studio. He'd be recording. I would be just an won't chicken played triangle every often but he he had a great taste of music but the one thing I could never understand his love supposed to run one day he sat me down and he played it and it was one of those. It was a complete one of the you. Listen and you get completely sucked in at jungle last. Yeah as I just for a moment in the middle of that song we were there right. And that was struck me as that must be the magic of springsteen why people like it and I tried to offset actually really did try to like his stuff. It really is. Because I've a bridge from the from the Kent countryside either nothing out will the Bruce springsteen inhabited grow about and Some Bait so real seventy payment. It meant nothing to me. Finally enough my by favorite springsteen songs by Tom. Rats rat trap. Which was that I wanted. Brexit is a springs theme. Song set is just The English Working Class so Skopje neighborhood and see kids walking around they. The pocket goal is fifty pay but top of the POPs is on tonight. It was springsteen in any English provincial towns just gas. The boys were coming on strong. This meat had already started as the pulsa watched the Yellow Ribbon Heroes Town Brown. The person who I WANNA student interest and the fat. It's like yeah I say token Vassall go to go those rotate. He was playing to fill a filter round. And said. If you're not GONNA use that we're having at that's why the rats recorded but I've often thought if thin lizzy recorded that song it would have been. It would have been amazing. Bruce springsteen popular in the seventies and the UK. He was popular it as much as a lot of people bought his records. I never renewable that a handful of people who was springsteen fans at most of the burris musicians journalist Like none of my my peer group as we've been whispering state fans we also guided by Teasha thinking about New Jersey. Greg next go down to four takes. Because but here's a band did seek out and was probably my one of my first span on. I absolutely loved and I was the WHO even though they're extremely English. They really won't get fooled again. Is the the song? Take out all Jim Anna saying. Thank you yes sir. We don't get food and WHO's next Was the first album that really hit me. Hard or It just it was more than there. Were really an international ban even though they started out as being very British reports of them. Those tubs Rangoon. But I'd say it was very against the who they always multi national in the same way as the Stone Soi Townsend when he was good just wrote songs and translates to any culture and one get food again. I picked musically. I think it's it's fabulous groundbreaking. Since that goes on for hours the knife footage of poultry walking out on smoke with the lasers going off around him and doing that. Scream case moves drugs yet dropping pretty much. Pally is more important than the guitar words away but really for that salt. It was the lyrics sense of absolute betrayal the underground hair and in Europe the betrayal they felt when the sixties ended seventy stores and they realized nothing had changed and still hasn't really changed. Who hadn't been for nothing because these they tried. But just the way cop as look around and it's like well. We should've stayed in bed. The only other brides who came close to that and I think he's later. The book was David. Bowie was CYGNET COMMITTEE. Which is also a very powerful lyrical same subject. Yeah those you can sing them in America and they could be. They could be about now. it's a very timeless song. Like won't get fooled. Again was a great song in the studio but live. It was like ten times better but when I heard them live it was like wow they really kicked it up a notch so I would even recommend this The kids are right. That's why I yeah. That's a spectacular really is again reached. The end of the with lasers can everything. Tennessee chose as a cinema. And it was just seeing that sequence a big screen and say nature for the. Who'll ever again so the next song. Which is a bit of a surprise to me but it makes sense. Gary Glitter's rock and roll guarantees is very difficult now because he had a lot of Doing is re And in Britain to say you like Gary Glitter's kind of attention to say how I wanted to come to your house and you have trash things. You talk like really awful things to say now. Both him and his music is effectively. Banned in Britain It does not get played anywhere. Compilation OUT REISSUED TO HAVE GARY GLITTER. Some of them. The salt is removed really insight so none none exist is I is having able basically a person you hear rock and roll in the sports arenas you don't hear that song in sports arenas I been home. I've been back to England Especially in home fifteen years ago. I did actually him for all and and you so you sink into the culture if it's your own and Gary and I have here and my wife and I told us and they were playing rock and roll. I stood there in absolute shock for. I believe they're playing this looking around to make sure that we know children shopped. I'm really a member of absolute so cultural confusion. Because part of me as I think you know a very long time Simponi of all American and the me I still has this little thing and toys show by all believe it. So yeah go ahead. I'm sorry say that Song I mean it's tops. The Fun ensure over hairy sports radio is I mean it's all over the place and it is regardless of anything. Gary may have done been accused of doing whatever that soul is is rock and roll. I don't think people even though it's him they just they. They said the song so many times in in sports arenas that they kind of expect it. I make this part of the show. Yeah it's it's the story that he wants. He told me once the when they first records it went on for fifteen minutes is tight now because released a character health is sports arenas when they play it they just keep on looping it. It's such a great can't even really call it a song. It's just a great thing is monitoring. The steam rose everything in front of it. It's for the crowd. It's for a crowd basically comes down to the first time. I heard it. God is really going back to school deal. Us Club disco twelve and is standing around like shuffling little bit very nervously. As I like that. But she's GonNa Foods all the DJ. That on and hope is just went. Silence for a moment is that nobody knew what to do to it and then everybody just went onto the dog of. There's just throwing themselves around. And that's the first time I sort of experience Malt madness to assault. Well now Americans especially if they hear this and never knew who was behind now they they'll feel icky about it I always talk. Should I know she's toss books suffer for their lighter misty? We really hate I don't know like as you know. Do we hate everything suspected it because all Some do but what I wanted to ask before we stop the podcast episode. Is that no rolling. Stones are Beatles in a top five and the stones. Don't make until twenty nine and let's see the Beatles I think it's something like Thirty or something With until five because I thought five best songs I five better songs. I wasn't doing it on spying say this times in if I was doing the thousand worse songs Something like she's leaving home would be until five Ghastly things ever written by anyone ever for any reason especially the harmonise chorus. But I I cannot really think of a Beatles soul I would say is better than anything in the top thirty. They did rape songs but a lot of other people degrade songs as well and have you ever one. Think of you like you'll fade. Think of something like tomorrow never knows guys like a great classic Beatles Song if somebody else had done. It wouldn't have been as important interesting but I have to say one thing. Beatles probably take up the most songs here and there like in middle of the pack they dominate so same with the stones kind of and you could say the same thing about the stones they had this unique ability to take even a mediocre song and turning it into gold and the Beatles. Were like that as well. I think is that we know how great they won't we note. How great this songs were. But they did right every great song in history and I would say Graham Guven what he wrote one song as I think several but once that was better than than any anyway can't stay for taking the time. I hope readers go to Amazon or go to other bookstores. It's the time to do something fun. When you're a lot of people are quarantining though some are returning to work but a thousand songs that rock your world It's got it's got a lot to say at each for each to these ause. I like the way you broke up everything to so it doesn't just become a list. One thing I would say about book for anybody who hasn't seen it and I had nothing to do with this. I think it's the most beautifully designed book I've ever had. It is great. It's designed with the exception of Brazilian version. One of my David Bowie books. Actually that was even saw this. I think is just so beautifully designed while you have to go to Amazon. You could take a look inside at some of the pages and see for yourself to the book was not just a long list as patches said but they took what could have been a long list and turned it into something absolutely fabulous. So we'll talk to you soon. Thank you very much. Thanks Steve. Thanks for taking the time to talk to us about something. Not as fun something. It is musically fun. You'll even notice on facebook.

One of my mentors I know she looks younger and less experienced but that is not true. He's way older and way more experienced. It's Cynthia Kersee. She is the founder of the Unstoppable Foundation Foundation. That's most important to me in my whole life and my family She is a Entrepreneur Philanthropic Entrepreneur. She is also an author speaker a motivator and inspiration to not only me but to millions of people around the world. She is impacting so many people. She doesn't even know about. I wanted to have her on the playbook because more people have to have your playbook to Success Cynthia. Thanks for joining me so much much. David I love. I love him so happy to be here. I know this is going to be a love. Best we'll start in a more pragmatic sense about your journey and how people end up where they are. A lot of people are looking for their Y and we all are learning lessons through that journey and you started as normal corporate person right. That was really your first real corporate tax and yet happiness maybe was surrounding you but alluding you at times and you went through a transformation. How did you transform from the normal corporate setting everyday life into extraordinary impactful life that you lead? Well I mean that's a good question because you know I started as an entry level telemarketer at sprint and went all the way to the top national account manager. So you know. I've got like the corner office. I making a six figure income and I'm not inspired and I think a lot of people get to that point. It's like this really all there is and I'd always love stories about unstoppable people and like you know of Disney. Who's on the verge of bankruptcy every eighteen months for thirty years and people don't know the back story you know they just see the success and I decided that in nineteen ninety six. I was going to quit. My job downsized my life to write my first book unstoppable and I remember telling my manager. I'm GONNA quit and he's like are you serious right. Why would you? You're going to leave this but I mean best decision of my life one of the best decisions of my life so I left that I I talk about different. Currencies one being the monetary currency. Which is the perspective that your manager had right like you in that monetary sense the object of energy that you put into flow to buy what you want Green Card Gold Card Platinum Carter Black Card money power then we make faithful decisions and I always say we make faithful decisions when we extract time from it and say what if I was living forever. Would I'd sit INS quarter office today right right and make six figures and I really believe that. That's one of the key components to seeing where your faith lies and testing the blend. Do you have green card? Faith Gold Card Fade plot faith or black card faith and I see that decision and several decisions in my life when I have black card. Faden when I'm all in that's right in the universe is going to respond that same way Amazon response to exactly whatever you want I well. It's kind of like the only way that that the universe can really respond at the level. Right the getting into the unknown. And that's really where the miracles can happen that. Which is your be the miracle campaign stoppable villages and things that we've done are just it's too much for the for the podcast. Actually go into but tell me the story about how your understanding of that faithful decision. That's how miracles occur to this. Be THE MIRACLE CAMPAIGN. We have with unstopped. Wow well that's a big jump brides. I think so. Basically you know wrote my book. Can I just kind of a little time to give them a little bit more? Backstory acid miracles. I got so excited about the miracle campaign. It's miracle after miracle really when you say yes and to me. It's really wears the inspiration calling that to me. That is a way of Inspiration got is speaking to us right. Inspirations in spirit so left a corporate job wrote my first book and Was invited actually first off. You know the I my left. My husband and I got separated in divorce. Eighteen months after my brand new book came out. So you know and it's like okay and I'm a single mom now living on a fourteen thousand five book and I called right left. All of that. You know downsized our lives to be able to do this book so I call my mentor. Millard Fuller the founder of habitat for humanity and told him what had happened and he said when you have a great pain in your life you need a greater purpose and I was living my purpose. I'd quit my job. Cashmere entire life savings to write my first book to inspire people. To live unstoppable lives but that purpose was not bigger than my pain was. Your husband was part of the difficulty that he didn't buy into your purpose. He was no he was actually. I mean. We weren't in alignment but he was supportive. Okay really you know. We were just on very different paths. Yeah and I asked him yes so many people. I don't WANNA contribute to fear of like. Oh she made this decision. I'M GONNA lose my husband or my wife now. It wasn't that normal course of marriage. It really was one of the fifty percent in California. I guess choice choice but I'm watching in this pain and people sometimes aren't willing to do what it takes and they won't respond to somebody when things are going in. Challenge dot going well. Supposedly in challenges are accumulating to hear your purposes and big enough right so many people can't hear that I hear you. How did you hear that? Or what would you tell someone to hear that? Well you know it's interesting because some people do want to hold onto right anger blame. Whatever right. I mean the list is long but I just resonated with it just felt like wow you have purpose. It's bigger than your pain and I remember being my mom and Dad's house over the holidays when I had separated from my husband and the first couple of days. I'm totally depressed and crying thinking I'm going to kill myself. You know. I have no reason to live and then I thought I don't know what I'm GonNa do next holiday season but it is not going to be staying at my mom and dad's feeling sorry for myself like I'm GonNa find something else so when Millard said that it resonated with me I thought. Oh He's right and I think people do have that little voice. They just aren't opened open to because they're holding onto like we set anger or blame or whatever story. I love so many people have told it but I remember hearing guy falls off the cliff just like you did and you grab yourself onto this one branch right and then you looking up going. Help me anybody out. There could help me God or whoever it saying let go Right and then most people hang on and say is anybody else out there. Yeah but you did. You let go and I've been there myself Can tell story after story to know how I got here to make room for what I have in my life to allow me to give to other people through that lesson Through that pain decided to do what? Oh my God it's just opened up so much so Did those raise the money? When I was speaking that first year I raise two hundred thousand dollars to build one hundred houses with habitat for humanity. And that was like the impetus to really understanding the power of giving. Because I thought I was doing something great you know like wow look what I'm doing. I'm raising money for these families. You'll base giving right whatever it was whatever was I mean. He made me feel good. That's the thing about giving. It is the most self serving thing you can do for sure. It's not like I was like I'm so great but it was like I didn't know what it was doing for me like it gave me a purpose. It CA- helped me through my grief. It gave me a reason to get out of bed. Which was one of the most impactful things you've ever said to me as my mentor. When I decided not to steal your thunder to Mir what you did when you were fifty seat is over. Fifty looked younger than me. I know but I decided you. You started your Your Unstoppable Foundation on your fiftieth tight by having a birthday party people give you gets to the charity instead of you so when I decided to do the same thing in fifty weeks fifty parties to build these community. Centers for unstoppable. Your response was Almost weird to me. At first I try to say without joking too much it was. I can't wait. I can't wait to see what happens for you. Yeah like what this is going to bring to you and I was like what is he talking like I bring for me. I'm not doing this for me. Ego took over right. Not Doing this for me doesn't get it. I'm not doing this for me. And yet your wisdom of Dave. You're just gonNA open up so much for yourself and I can't wait to see what happens for you and you even said I remember you said to your team. Be ready for the flood of favor. Yeah which I think is so beautiful because that is giving like that is the spiritual essence. I I've you have to give from a place of contribution right so like when I had my birthday party you had yours. You're not doing it to receive. But that's just the way it works as you give you receive to be able. We are centers of distribution as Bob. Proctor taught us both times in my life was trading like I actually would give to receive right. It won't give without some sort of quid pro quo to it. And when he said you cannot. You can't trade you have to unconditionally give so when I was unconditionally giving and I thought my mind body and soul were aligned with what I wanted. And you say oh. I can't wait to see what happens for you. There was a little bit of a disconnect ago. No no no. I'm not trading. This time I'm really not talked about my uncle. That's out of your day was like well. How much is Dave getting paid to do? This and my wife was so upset. I said No. That's the snapshot of WHO? I was and I think. A lot of people have a problem with the snapshot of WHO? I was when I was on row. One of the big interviewers caring ran into high school friends and he's like yeah he was. I'm you know his initial reaction was Dave Meltzer so full of it and he got offensive for me and I said no no no. He's right he's my friend was seventeen years old and I don't know any seventeen year olds. That aren't full of it right but I continue my twenties in moreover he did say. I'm so proud of him because at least close enough and I don't know his name to see the evolution or the mission and that's where I think everyone has true value in giving why I'm so. Involved with unstoppable is allow yourself to have a transformation to accelerate transformation by learning how to receive and then giving it away on conditioning. And so you yourself now you decide. How did you transition from habitat for humanity to like saying all right? I'm GonNa Start Foundation Insane. Thank goodness in fact. I even look at my life when I do. Is Chairman of your. This is insane and it's the best thing in my life next to my children and my wife Well I hear you so it was like. I didn't really want to do that but I you know I went to this. I was invited to this Kenyan Rural African Women Conference when my second book came out and stoppable women. So I'm really looking for what's that next. Big Philanthropic project researching a bigger purpose bigger. Yeah bigger opportunity to give and I was invited to go to this conference with these women and it's in rural Africa and it was one of those things David where it's like. It made no sense. It was happening in a couple of weeks. I needed to rearrange my schedule. But there was that still small voice. That said you should do this. So I rearranged my schedule I flew over there and there were forty women from North America. congregating in a room where four hundred women from East Africa. Many of them walked days babies on their back. You know their family. You really can't hardly survive without them. 'cause they're fetching water and all that but they were. They're looking for solutions. And as I sat there day after day listening to them talk about things. I couldn't imagine you know the girls are water. The kids are getting sick. The dying malaria. They're dying of diarrhea. Like all of this stuff and the first couple of days. I'm just feeling so overwhelmed with empathy and then I started to get pissed off and it's like why is this okay? This is not okay and I don't know anybody that I know talking about you. Know their kids dying of malaria or diarrhea or their fetching water and as I was leaving after five days my heart was so open and I fell in love with these women and they were chanting something as we were saying by an IAS interpreter. What are they saying? And he said they're saying please don't forget us and I'm thinking great you know like who am I to even do anything so I said I will do some thing. I don't know what it is and I think that's one of the when you think playbook do what you can with what you've got with where you are and so. I was turning fifty. I was actually kind of depressed about turning fifty. I'm single at the time first world problem. Yeah right turning fifty a lot of people wanNA turn fifty live long enough to turn fifty in other countries but I decided to turn that birthday party into a fundraiser again. It was like a purpose. Bigger than you're paying it whatever's sounds crazy but I had this party and you know about PROCTOR K. Mary Morrissey came like my dearest friends. Debbie Ford and people that night thanked me for the opportunity to give. We ended up raising eighty thousand dollars and built two schools and again it was that night it was one of the single most joyful days of my life. And that was it for me. I thought okay. If I can do this in one night what could I do? I actually put my mind to it and said that's how it started. You know the intention I don't think was to have this big grand Foundation but it was. I made a promise that I needed to deliver them. And then it's just grown right you're drawn or pulled to the higher vibration is how I felt for me too and I didn't want to take the phone call When I car my mentor. Who started the children's Miracle Network? The biggest philanthropists ever the states. You'd take a phone call from someone that he tells me will change my life. The fear part of me being in the constructive human existence. I'm busy too busy for another charity. For another person in my life and it was almost intimidating how Joe Lake described you to me and I remember specifically exactly where it was going. Okay five twenty rule. You'RE GONNA give Cynthia five minutes. You're gonNA give her a little bit of money or an introduction and you're going to get off this phone and then it was the same calling or idea that I started out by just being a host committee members in falling in fact when I went to to Africa to see what we are truly working on and I don't think I was chairman yet value. Why wasn't that's right right and and I haven't been asked. She tricked me and she said it would be an interim job and then coming from where. She was educated. I thought Oh interim means just this lifetime. I guess I'd say this story I haven't shared with you and you probably know this story but one of the camera man who I love. Mikey who he re. We heard a big line going to walk to the water and your by like cow's fences somehow like a cow almost got out. He didn't but it was like a chain reaction with all the people screaming and like my wife and my oldest daughter who's tiny seventy pounds and they're like Mike the cameraman instead of protecting people. You like ran everybody over so I teased him like I like to do the whole time calling him. Chicken little chicken. Mikey whatever it was anyway he. We share at the end of every day in Africa. And he told his story about how he lost his wife and child to pre-clampsia to something my wife had with my hit me. Upset CO chief like Uber. How let this happen beyond what I was doing for Mama and the girls in the schools. They it bloop. I've never seen people more dedicated education like I was sports like my mom had to pull me off the streets not to play a sport right. You have to pull especially the girls off the classroom seven at night. Can we be five? Am I'M NOT GONNA stop? That's the way I was about sports. I've never seen anyone especially in America that had such passion to learn but this one thing I told my imagine it was not even a big deal in America that my wife had pre ECLAMPSIA right. She was not a danger. The baby was my oldest was not in danger and here his whole life was impacted because of something we could change. That's right and you look around here there. In that perspective I always say be kind to your futures. Do Good Deeds I'd do good politics to cry. Children Call One. Eight hundred days doesn't mean that much to me and I think more people need to understand what drives you 'cause we hear the voices all the time. What do you do about it? I'm not saying give up your whole life. We didn't give I didn't hear a voice your voice by the way and just come home and tell my wife that's it. We're giving everything to unstoppable and still to this day I don't give everything unstoppable but it evolves excuse growing allowing more things to happen and nothing has had a greater impact on my life. Then you your husband and the foundation and I know this no accident. The flood of favor just keeps coming. And that's not why I do it but I wanted other people to share that feeling that you had and it transferred to me and I know it's impact so many people. I joke around with Cynthia when I go to Africa. Now there's like all these little Cynthia's they all name there. That's how much impact they name their children after you a joke out with them like I just can't see the first David Give me one is I'm doing. I will hold that with you. I'm going to anyway. So this evolves into an extraordinary found. Tell me tell me I hate that word. Don't tell me share What we'RE DOING. Yeah and the impact rabbi well so the first thing is of course you know when children Aren't in school whether you build a school so basically did some research and God you know. Billions of dollars are wasted building schools in developing countries. Because in five years if you're not addressing their nutritional needs their healthcare needs there The ability for their parents to generate an income. Kids aren't in school right so these buildings are left empty so it was like okay. Not only do we need to build schools. We've got to provide clean water and sanitation. We need to provide health care and nutritious food and so you know like this five pillar model and so I found a partner and this is what I think is key. Don't try to do things by yourself. You know. Don't reindicted I've gotten really good asking and receiving because it's just not for me. It's like I realize it's just part of the flow and that's why when I do ask I do understand. Say Your receipt. I seriously works in business. By the way I see it all time series of questions of how you can be of service or value. That's right but a series of questions of what other people can do for you There you go and it feels great. Yeah for everyone yeah for. How do you say you're giving them the opportunity that's right? It's their blessing them by allowing them to give. That's right that's right so anyway so basically we started with this five pillar model And then it was like okay. Well then what happens to the girls right? They're getting married off when they finished primary school so without we need to help build to high school so they can continue to continue high school. But then it's like only one half of one percent of the kids can ever go to college in predict predominantly. It's the boys that are going to Nairobi. And that's still a very small percentage so we came with our partners and said we charity and said we want to be a part of college and so two years ago. The unstoppable scholar program was launched. It we college where funding every single scholarship for they're becoming doctors nurses school of agriculture mechanics tourism on next year's transportation and civil engineering and finally stubs. Up Entrepreneurship. That's right. No that's coming to coming to. We're doing that one as well for sure. But it's like and this is this. I'll share the be the miracle but for for me it's like okay. We started because you have to meet people where they are. You can't give him a frigging book and say read this book about Transforming Your Life if they're hungry you know if they're dying. You can't do that. But now they're to the point where we're really giving them the tools to achieve their dreams through our leadership academy so we have a two year leadership academy that start in the college and then we have launched I Community Center through you and your fifty four fifty and now parents. The communities are learning about the power forgiveness and they're learning about how to make restitution. And how do you work together? I mean it's it's unbelievable. Even one of the things I believe in sharing the situational knowledge. Not Losing the tradition exactly with a separateness that occurred in the United States because technology that you know as our children are utilizing different modes of communication as parents and grandparents. You completely failed separate in ineffectual and we need to understand and learn. And that's why I have such a big internship program. That's why I truly do. I do want there to be shared knowledge. There's a lot of great pizza. Bob proctor is eighty five years old and I sit for hours to best dinners. I've ever had just taking notes. No I tell him. It's is it rude but I need a paper and pen to have dinner with you. He takes a huge compliment. But that's what those community senators for me is. Hey GRANDPA. Here's what I'm doing. How does this apply to human nature? Because you've been around a long time writing human nature never changes and we don't understand human nature. I'm not going to be able to maximize the use of this unbelievable opportunity. That unstoppable is given me. That's where I saw that community aspect And it really took off. It really did and now we're starting with. Yeah thank your support. So you're you're bringing it. That's right everybody who supported you through your fifty fifty so now now. They're learning the tools they never got to go to school. But they're learning tools that can empower them. They can learn how to generate an income or effectively And you know they've been. I mean there was this one family. 'cause I think about forgiveness is so powerful and literally the tribes weren't even speaking to each other. You know for many many years. You know about stealing their cattle and things like that and he realized he said I realized by not forgiving them. I'm hurting my children. I'm hurting my children. And they went they went and they reconciled which I think is so powerful you know so those are just some things that are happening so now ready to talk about. I want to talk about the be the miracle tape. Okay I love this so okay. So here's a student talk a manifestation story. She lives in the Maasai Mar and her parents. She's really a unique girl because her mom and dad both were committed to her getting an education you know. Most of them are primary school at best. They wanted her to go to multiple stories. We've told in the past about these young women who have to run away from their families because they're great circumcise exactly where my age? Yeah Cynthia's now thinking it's bad enough. Somebody married this guy but imagine if they were fourteen. Marry him for Julie. The thing is though you're not even good example because you such a great human being these men. They're trying to survive so the women women are really moving into a life of Servitude. So when they're getting married you know they've got for a better future and they're married off to a cow two cows a as a dowry and their life is over so betty's parents didn't want that for her right so they said we have got to keep you at least into high school and unexpectedly. Her father died when she was in the Tenth Grade. Within one week. The mom all of the resources are gone. They're barely surviving again. But he's like mom. I've gotta come back home. This come on. I need to help you. And her mom said no your father and I. This is like this. We have committed to this. You were going to stay in school. And so she worked with our community. She was able to keep her in school. Betty graduates from high school and her dream as a little girl was to become a nurse but there was no college round where she could become a nurse. So what did she do? She went back home. Lived with her mom. Bhakta fetching water fetching firewood and selling and buying eggs this is. It's smart little girl. No opportunity for six years. That was her life and one day it was like she lost all hope and she's fetching water and she's going to the river and she looks up in the heavens. You said God it. This is my life like if this is all there is. I don't WanNa Live. And she saw that river and she was ready to jump in their snakes. Crocodiles and Hippos. But then she had another thought she thought. What's my mom going to do if I kill myself? And what kind of example am I going to be to my brothers and sisters and what? This is the key. What if tomorrow? There's a miracle and I'm not even here for it and she decided that I'm not gonNA kill myself. I am going to wait for that miracle two weeks later. A neighbor told her about week. College and the scholarships and Guess. What program the scholarships or for for nursing and Betty applied and got accepted into the nursing program. And when she we brought her to. La For one of our events. And I actually couldn't even her story for two days. I was so emotional but when I was sitting next to her I said Betty your faith. You called us in like you. That she held that vision against all odds. And and then I was thinking I said and it is such an honor to be a part of your miracle. Do you know what I mean. It's like that's what happens when you give. It's like the highest honor to be able to be part of somebody else's dream in their life and so then we came up with a b the miracle campaign. It's like that's what we all are. We get to be the miracle and we get to be a part of somebody else's miracles and the miracles just they flow back and forth so currency just like money. That's it money doesn't disappear. Neither does miracles. That's why I encourage people to have that black Carter faith to sit there so many people my mission in life beyond supporting unstoppable is to impact a thousand people impact. Thousand people will be happy basically to have that faith to make this one's going to sit on the side of the river at one time or another that's right and that's exactly it and it's like do. I even care. That's what I loved it so much because I certainly resonate with that and there are people it's like if is is all there is it isn't right but so many people throw in the. Tau And the miracle is right up there like if tomorrow what if I quit today and tomorrow that miracle is going to be there for me and I quit to bring this full circle into entrepreneurials base. What if sent the Kersey would have just stayed in her corner office working for sprint? Never really would know or impact. Hardly anyone probably lived a very comfortable life not nearly as challenging as it was for betty right but I believe spiritually emotionally. It would have been as great of a loss is. Betty would have thrown herself into the river so all of us aren't in the place. Although more of us are more of us you know suicide is way out of controlling. Id Depression Opiate Addiction. All related to happiness. Sometimes you do have to make the decision and wait for that miracle and do everything that you can for allowing it to happen. And I'm just so grateful that you came here taught those lessons. That are entrepreneur lessons. His life lessons of what it takes to enjoy a consistent persistent pursuit of your potential by helping other people's allowing the flood of favor to come into your life. I know it. Has I know your husband? Your children your grandchildren and you live in abundant beautiful life. That's GONNA be -membered through others forever.
