"Welcome to our first episode, something in the water. Yeah, that works. Bomani Jones is here. And we're asking the question, what does it take for someone talented to get a real shot? Baseline talent has to be there, and then we go from there. And yes, after that point, we are talking about nurturing. We are talking about belief. We are talking about affirming within people. This is something that you can do and I am going to train you to do this excellently because you can, in fact, be excellent at this. And the sort of corollary to giving someone opportunity is also giving someone multiple chances. And so often I feel like it comes down to how short is the leash for screwing. And that's often what it takes. It takes faith in the real deepest way. The point is, you do need more than pure talent to get to the top. You need all those doors being held open for you on your path. All those chances to prove yourself worthy. All the times, someone leaned in close, looked you in the eye and said, it could be you. You need, let's coin a phrase here. You need an opportunity pipeline. Now, if I were to connect that to my own life, I am a graduate of a historically black college Clark Atlanta university. And one thing that you learn and figure out very quickly going to an HBCU is if you look at the stats of who goes to medical school and who goes to graduate school, like studying for PhDs, among black people, the sample is disproportionately HBCU grades. And so what I knew from my own experience at the HBCU was what I was more likely to receive at the HBCU was the attention that comes from somebody who believes that you're special. If the sample is then all black people, then a lot of the head trash that comes in about what black people are and what black people are not. You kind of have to throw it out, right? Like the control is set for race. Everybody there is the same. You're going to have a harder time bringing that stuff in saying this person isn't this, this person isn't that because you're going to see them all together and those who are going to rise without all these things that come in and mess up your mind in the process. At the college, there was an ecosystem in place that set people up to succeed over and over. There's an equivalent to that in sports hotbeds. Pockets of the country that have found a way to produce a particular kind of great athlete over and over. To the point where you almost do have to wonder, man, could there just be something in the water? These are places like the area around Belgrade, Florida, also known as muck city, home to brilliant wide receiver after brilliant wide receiver, including santonio Holmes and anquan Bolden. That's one hotbed. Or think about swimmers from the Bay Area or sprinters from Jamaica, baseball players from the Dominican Republic. Hot beds are opportunity pipelines. I mean, the big one to me is basketball and kenston, North Carolina. Which is the hometown of Jerry stackhouse, Cedric Maxwell, Andrew Wiggins father Mitchell, Reggie Bullock, and kinston, I want to say as a population of 20,000 people. I forget what the exorbitant odds are for most schools in terms of producing players who go to the NBA. But it's one in however many thousands. At kinston high school, it is an absurdly high rate. That would hugely fascinates me. He's right. The odds of making the league if you're not from Kingston, North Carolina are like three in 10,000. In Kingston, it's about one out of 50. Incredible. There are legends about what makes a lot of these hotbeds work. In the part of Florida, they call mock city, which produces all those NFL receivers, people talk about how, during the late summer harvest season, kids chase rabbits in the local sugarcane fields. That's how they get so fast and agile, and eventually turn into great football players. Those are all something in the water explanations. But they're actually are a number of ingredients that seem to make an opportunity pipeline work. Maybe there's a formula of sorts. So, grab a pencil, let's make a list. You, me, Omani. One ingredient intense competition. Take a place like new York city basketball in the 80s and 90s. A hotbed of generational talented point guards. I contend that the advantage that New York basketball players had over everybody else is how easy it was to get a game against great players, right? Like you were a subway ride away from a, if you are a Kenny Anderson, New York legend coming up, you can go play against anybody, even if you're in Queens, right? It might take you a while on the train to get to where you going, but you could go play against anybody in sharpen your skills in a way that is far more difficult if you from a small town. Far more difficult, even if you're from a midsize city. Okay, competition is on the list. Another factor coaching. You hear stories about certain coaches who move from one part of the country to another. And then all of a sudden, all the great players, the quarterbacks, the hockey goalies, whatever. They're all coming from that area now. So good coaching, a competitive cohort, and I mean, let's be honest, money has to be on the list. People pour massive resources into things like youth football in Texas. Texas produces overdeveloped football prospects, like all the money has been put into infrastructure and everything else. Going back to the muck city example, local role models seem really important. You know, you're a rising 8th grader and all of a sudden you look up and there's anquan boldin and santonio Holmes playing in the Super Bowl and they're from your little town of 20,000 people and you're like, that could be me. You know? Yeah. And there are people coming back and they're saying, hey, we can beat you in the person coming back. Might be aqua ball. Yeah. So, our hotbed formula, coaching, competition, cash, inspiration, and what the hell? Let's throw chasing rabbits into the mix as well. But money and I have some ideas about what makes a hotbed, but we're just two dudes with a microphone and itchy brains. To really answer this question of what makes a talent hotbed tick. We went where one always goes for answers to life's most vexing questions. A strip mall in Milpitas, California. Walk with me into a squat boxy building that could very well have been a car dealership, not that many years ago. And you'll find yourself staring at a row of photos. 7 table tennis Olympians. Okay, so this is like our kind of a normal lobby area where we have all our display of our Olympians. You see Olympians. So anyone comes in the building, a new person, when they see this professional table tennis Olympians and national team member training, they are impressed. Raja sheath runs the table tennis program here at the India community center in Milpitas. And this is his wall of fame. Pictures of table tennis greats, all of them trained just down this echoey hallway. Let's follow Raju there. Into a massive gymnasium about the size of three basketball courts. Row after row of kids playing tabletop. Very nice. At 11 a.m. on a Tuesday, over a hundred kids are playing around dozens of ping Pong tables. And Rojo, I promise that's the only time I call it ping Pong. The kids are stabbing at the ball, serving, rallying, while their coaches look on, calling out encouragement and advice. To advance players face off in one corner of the room, dancing around their table, the ball blurring between them. This is what we came here to see. The inner workings of a bona FIDE hotbed. A place that has sent at least three players to every

"You're waking up to right now. I'm Dean Blaine. We do indeed. Thank you for taking us along for your Friday morning Bride. Topping the news as we head into this day together as we've been telling you here on W. T O P. President Biden has officially announced just this week that businesses with at least 100 workers must either get them vaccinated for covid or require weekly testing. The president, also issuing a firm edict to federal workers and contractors alike. Get the vaccine or face discipline. Wtl peacemaking clarity this morning getting reaction from union leaders. It's a firmer stance in the last presidential notice to federal employees, which said if they didn't get vaccinated, they face rigorous testing. Now, the administration says unvaccinated workers will be subject to counseling and discipline to include termination. In a statement, a union representing more than 300,000 feds, the American Federation of Government Employees issued a statement saying it encourages members to get vaccinated. But that quote simply put workers deserve a voice and their working conditions, asking that bargaining units be involved in these decisions. National Treasury employees. Union President Tony Reardon says the president has a legal right to require vaccinations and believes the government should delay a return from maximum telework to protect its workforce. Megan Cloherty w T. O P News also do this Friday morning Montgomery County Public schools now requiring its staffers to get a covid vaccination, But unlike many mandates we've heard about they will not have the option of getting a weekly covid test instead.

Failure to comply could eventually result in termination. As soon as Monday.

"You know you might have to commit around five pick and around let you could take around five and six pick on if you really like hopkinson and then dak prescott or something like that you would need one of the two to slide. I think unless got hurt. Your guy hockey needs case fan. Hopkinson is going sixty seconds. So it's the very end of around five and dak. Prescott is gearing. Fiftieth lamar jackson fiftieth. All right if you made that russell wilson he's going back kinston so you could you with the last pick of round five in the first pick around six. Yeah and it's conceivable. If you had the mark andrews going sixty fifth so he's going after harkinson. You could have a middle middle of the round pick and add about fifty seven overall. Take kyla murray or something like that. If he's there. Were one of those quarterbacks and then hope to get mark andrews in the next round maybe hopkinson falls a few spots. You might get a little bit lucky but but that strategy overall. What do you think about two running backs two receivers or some combination of that with your first four picks and then a quarterback in a tight end. You'll get the second tier of quarterback. Dave puts mahomes in that same year. So we the first or the second year but a top six quarterback and top six tight. End in rounds. Five and six can do it. I think it's good. My my preference would be because i think gen like i know what the adp is. No all those guys are late round five early round six. The quarterbacks are experiences generally in round six. You will find one of those quarterbacks. It's usually russell wilson. Sometimes it's dak prescott it. It has been lamar jackson which is astonishing to me but it sometimes he. He falls to the last year that group i. I love getting five running backs wide receivers. And then taking the last of the quarterbacks in round six and then taking god or fanton round seven okay dave do you have a. You have a thought on that. No i think that he's planned is fine. You just have to like got her to do it. And you have to get goddard and seven. You should not reach for dallas. Gutter is the point that i'll make today's. Let's let's have fan debate. Then because he's obviously dave you have him in that third tier but at the bottom of like the tier ranges. i think i've got that ranges routes five through seven. Yes and if i broke out of that tear the range would be round five basically for hopkinson and andrews and pits and then got a ruby in his own tier as around seven pick. I'm not as jazzed about him. As other people are the distribution from hurts last year the addition of devante smith. We'll nervous about him getting a ton of targets. Anything else you wanna say or throw it over to heath five point seven targets per game with hurts. Fourteen percent target share from hurts. No red zone targets from hurts in three and three quarters games. Averaged six point six yards per attempt with was eight point seven and Hertzel run in the red zone. That could take away targets in the red zone which were not existent already last year. He's made the case for got her..

"I'm so honored. And i just want to say. I think my son takes me a lot more seriously because you are interested in having me on. Oh wait until he. Here's the backstory. And very happy to meet sam just a few minutes ago before we started recording and the backstory is as follows when i was working on my first book four hour workweek the blessing and curse that that title has always been but at the time pre publication working on this book and i made it about halfway or two thirds of the way in and realized holy shit. This structure the entire. Lattice work that. I thought i created so perfectly is not going to work at all and then i proceeded to promptly have. In retrospect it was probably a complete nervous breakdown began self medicating with copious amounts of caffeine and a little bit of alcohol at night and went into the spiral of self doubt and loathing and was absolutely convinced. I was going to have to throw in the towel. Return the advance lick my wounds and move on and someone gifted me bird by bird and this cannot be the only time you've heard this but it proved to be invaluable life raft or maybe some type of resuscitation device may both and it is. I would say no short measure one of the most important components that allowed me to finish that book. Furthermore the years following led me to meet many people including friends like ramiz seti and when he was writing his book he also crossed the rubicon and landed in the territory of self loathing and was going to do the same thing he was going to quit. He just thought there was no way out. He was trapped in a maze. Gave him bird by bird. He was able to finish and his book became a new york times bestseller. And you must hear this all the time. And i'm going to ask a question that no doubt you've been asked before but i have to ask. What do you think it is about bird by bird that affected so many people so deeply and certainly. That's true of many of your other works but in this particular case what do you think it is. That has that type of effect on people. I think it's because i didn't try to con people into thinking that if they just got a book finished that my agent would want to take a look at it by the end of the week and that it would almost certainly be published and then they would all the swiss cheese holes incited. Then we'd be healed and they'd be well and they get that. Fda stamp of approval and be validated and then their parents would start to respect him. I said none of that's going to happen. All of that is an inside job. But i'll tell you a funny story. Went sam's little boy whose twelve now is five. I was teaching his kindergarten class a writing workshop and instead of saying shitty first strauss. I said really poopie for straps. But after and the kids love me. And after i was done my little grants child came up to me and he leaned in and he sounded like tony. Soprano he said. Oh that was terrible and i said what and he said you told people you would teach them how to write a book but you only taught us how to write one page. And that's what. I can help you do as one chapter on shitty for straps. I try to teach kids or grownups. How to write really really well. I just teach him to stop. Not writing i to keep their butt in the chair into right badly and that all first drafts of any book you ever read by the author. She esteem most began as unreadable. First drafts and i teach people to take it really small bird by bird. Is it okay. If i tell the story is please. I would love for you to tell the story. Just what people know the genesis. Well my older brother. I was like a superstar achiever in school. My older brother hated school. And was kind of a rebel in california in the fifties and early sixties in fourth grade. You wrote to term papers. One was the sacramento paper. That's our state capital and the other was on birds and you had all year all semester paper on birds and my brother hadn't started. It was due on monday on a saturday. He admitted to my dad that he hadn't started my brothers tough guy and he he was in tears and my dad sat down with them and put his arm around him and he said. Just take your bird by bird. Buddy you know. I you read about tickies. And then you write a paragraph in your own words about chicken and then you draw picture and then you take pelicans and you steady up on pelicans. Kinston any writer paragraph for a passage. On pelicans i never ever forgot that. And then years later probably twenty years ago so in my forties. I heard l. Doctor say that writing was like driving at night with the headlights on. You could only see a little ways in front of you but you could make the whole journey that way and i think that is the most profound advice. I can offer anyone on any topic that you you. You can only see a little ways in front of you and and you can make the whole journey that way and another another thing that i think. Help people when they read bird by bird was the chapter on perfectionism and how perfectionist the voice of the oppressor voice of the enemy. And if you listen to it keeps you crazy for your entire life because 'cause we all fall short you know you've written books and you think you're creating this golden and crystal palace people can walk inside of see all of truth and beauty and reality and you kind of end up your books and my books. All of them are kind of shantytowns you know during the peace marches where people set up tents and thought it made sense to bring their dogs. You know during the reign store and that's a miracle to written a shantytown and so i think these ideas of not knowing what you're doing and letting your of do it really badly and to try to help grind down that critical boys. I'll just mention my husband's work here. He's neil allen he wrote shapes of truth and the work he does with people in these shapes chooses taming the inner critic and what his position as you're never gonna get rid of it you know we don't get over very much here. What he does with people as he hasn't bring forest the inner critic and actually just put it on the table in front of him and he. He's thanks for keeping him alive when he was six and seven because it kept him small and controllable so he didn't run out into the street. He didn't swim out past his ability to stay afloat but then at the age of six year. Whatever we probably don't need it anymore. And so he has his clients give the inner critic a great new job which might be ethical consultant for the project so that the inner critic can go up to the library where there's an incredibly comfortable chair and it could reading light in two thousand bucks and he will sit there and read which he loves to and we need an ethical consultation will come get him..

"What was the locker room like when you were there? Our locker room was great. I mean, there was no animosity, uh, towards anything If anybody had a problem, we nipped it in the butt right away. You know, we all went out together as a team. You know, we did. We just We played as a team. And to me it was probably one of the best clubhouses I've ever been in. Because we were all one. We're all brothers. Nobody had there was no. You know, racial tension. There was nothing this We all did stuff together. Like Chili Davis, one of the most Nicest human beings. You'll ever meet in your life and in a veteran guy, and he just you know, he got it. He got it right. He knew what to do. He didn't play the trump card. What everybody's doing today.

I went to double I went to high a ball Kinston, North Carolina, and so so the brothers were lived on one side of town. And on all the white guys in there because it was still segregated back then, and it confused the hell out of me because I didn't know what that was. Really. I've never seen that I've never encountered it. But we weren't allowed to go on that side and they weren't allowed to go on our side. And it It was just really weird. And I didn't understand. And it wasn't fair because guys got treated, you know a little bit different, but as as players We didn't care. We were all about each other, and we love each other and we soon we We fought for each other, and that's the way it should be. Yeah, I just don't remember.

But I don't remember problems like rumors of it at least and one specifically with the Yankees, who shall remain nameless, but he was supposedly a big problem in the locker room, but nothing to do with race. He was just making fun of other players in the locker room, supposedly one of them. Ironically, um, the player happen to be black and the other guy was was black. And they said, This guy has got to go and they got rid of them. And then they brought in other players like Chili Davis and others. And then the Yankees had this just incredible run, obviously which you were a part of Uh and I don't remember it being an issue matter of fact. Not as many. You know that as many former players who was outspoken as you are. You've been one of the brave guys to speak truth to power on this issue of he's woke locker rooms, but I communicate with some others, and they say the same thing David there like it just wasn't like this.

"Well, that's a great question. I mean, this is like the looming question. According to John Lynch, the Niners called on and checked in with the Packers. Um said it didn't go very far. I would imagine if you're gonna kissed the general manager there. You know you don't want to trade Aaron Rodgers one but the last place you want to trade with the 40 Niners because it ends your Super Bowl run for two or three years and it opens your one of your rivals runs at the ball. And you know you're gonna lose that equation because Kyle with With Rogers is, you know very likely to get a Super Bowl And you without Rogers is likely to net not get a Super Bowl. So, um, I I don't know what's gonna happen here. Aaron Rodgers has made an awful lot of money. Kind of do what he wants to do, Right? And it sounds if you want to just, you know, Camp out in Southern California and be the jeopardy host. And do you know two commercials with Jake from State farm or whatever. I mean, he could do that. He doesn't necessarily have to play so I don't know. I mean, um Carson Palmer forced his way out of Cincinnati. It was ugly was protracted. I don't I don't know what What do you got to see when the sentence scenario because and You see any way that the 40 Niners who wanna be get involved in this scenario, somehow some way you know if if ultimately Erin holds the cards and the leverage It's just to me just it just feels like drama. Just you know, it's just added drama to this whole thing, and, you know, And when you have that leverage when your hair in Rogers and you know You know, you know, Once you say I want out of an area out of the team, you have to inquire because he's that caliber quarterback and John Lynn said It was it was a quick conversation. What? What you need As a general manager and owner of a football team to get rid of Aaron Rodgers. You would need everything. I mean, you'd have to be willing as a team toe give up, you know, five years of first round draft picks. It's not gonna be an easy thing to do unless it happens. You know what? 345 team trade some type of, like a basketball type of things, so I don't know how he gets out of there. I saw him on jeopardy. What impressed? I'm more impressed with his his abilities, his ability his abilities on the football field. I mean, it was, you know, I like that. I like the one dude who you know who won all the money. The first Host. They had their own. Can't Jenny. I kind of liked him because he looks like he fits it. You know, he's kind of a jeopardy looking guy. He speaks like he's the jeopardy guy. And you know there's jeopardy. Guys know she is the best jeopardy. Guy s O. I mean, e just feel like this is added drama. I don't I don't know what What what You do? I mean, you talk about splitting up your locker room or or you know the culture of the team When you have your quarterback, you know your leaders saying I want out of here. I mean, you have to kind of figure out. You know how you're gonna make that work in your locker room, don't you? Yeah, as we're as we're having this conversation, the Packers just made a selection. They get offensive guard out of Ole Miss Royce Newman is the 142nd player taken in the draft. There's just two picks left to go jets and chiefs to close out the fourth round. Then we get to the fifth. That's where the 40 Niners will have a very big role with three picks, including the 11th pick in the round. So we are now 13 picks away from the 40 Niners being on the clock. But to answer your question, Larry, I mean, it feels like the ship has sailed on the idea of the 40 Niners. Getting involved. We saw those reports that the night before the draft, Aaron was convinced he was coming to San Francisco. John Lynch's Yeah. John Lynch's comments, of course, that the conversation didn't get far. Make a lot more sense. If if you're the Packers, it's gut wrenching enough to have to trade Aaron Rodgers to trade him to the 40. Niners would just be the most, you know, tail between your legs, embarrassing thing that could happen to them. So I I don't see that happening and now without any future first round picks as capital And you've just had this great story of Trey lands coming in Jed York, playfully being on Twitter all day with it and all of this, Are you going to turn around? And then use Trey lands as as a trade piece to get Aaron Rodgers and the Packers want that. They've got a first round quarterback from last year. There just isn't a match here. I couldn't get to the point where Aaron has two needs to go somewhere else. Sure, But if I'm the Packers, that team's got to be in the A F. C. It flat out has to be in the A F. C.

We look at a lot of these different areas and then provide actionable insights to the worker and their supervisor and then i would also say on a larger scale. We like to provide anonymous data to companies that they can create a safer work environment for their workers overall. So this is what you call the kinston solution. That's it all wrapped up okay. Well let's get into the weeds on on some of this thing. So for example you have a lot of oil and gas clients. Yeah yeah we do. There are a lot of oil and gas clans. i would say not. It goes outside of oil and gas is well. I mean think of mining industry with oil and gas. There's construction certain on the front end of a lot of these large projects.

This is exact. Okay it's a rhetoric bays and that's really giving opportunities to the students to present material to others or to put it into practice. The reality is though that is mostly on the side of presentation because curriculum is difficult for me to give you all the possibilities of ways you could apply the bible right. Might go on a mission trip with your kids right. Go and serve in ministry with your application. I don't need you. Don't get a package that right right and do it and coach them through it right but there is also this presentation and persuasive side and so that's kind of where we fitted in In imbaba quest. Because we could do that. Yeah i love that. I love it and it's an and do you have to do every part of the curriculum in order for it to make sense or can you do pieces at like. Can you just take the game. Cards may be in. Somebody's just play the games or some days. Just do memorization okay. So in the curriculum book and each week has Just a little really easy to find Format of what you can do for that day so you would just open it up to that week and if if you want to just focus on maybe geography maybe in your own home school. You're working on a certain part of the world and so you're wanting to this in with it. You definitely take that apart. I think you do have to have a little bit foundation. In order to use the cards fully as the game You would have to have explained a little bit of. yeah. I definitely start each week with with going. But she's right. You could definitely you know. Have an emphasis on different day. Interesting part of it. Okay but that just that equipped phase you could do the empower faced. That's that dialectic phase. On its own. I suppose it's possible share. You gain something from it. Okay there is not that there wouldn't be value there right It is made to be used in order is that you couldn't days do something different. Of course you could. You could definitely do that. Where where i think people would get into trouble is that they're trying to go to the very end without having any foundation underneath. You know what. I mean. I wouldn't i wouldn't Go there and expected to have the same impact right. We'll still have an impact in house. We're just returned to avoid and if you're showing people god's word and they're living that out there's value there. Yeah so yeah. I love you done an excellent job with this and i've enjoyed flipping through the last couple of weeks and i just seen i can see that. The lord really worked through you to put this together. It's not something that you just threw together and said here here's a bible curriculum But it really does lay out a great foundation for teaching.

"That's a little harder right. And at what point do you let your child girl or boy. Sort of take the reins in what sort of change they want to be making you expose them to different sorts of volunteering in different opportunities and let them decide. They're saving the whales or whatever the case may be at. What point does that happen. Yes they should always lead. You get to volunteer in the things that you're passionate about when you're young for you know they have to come along right like they're young. They can't stay at home with you and so they're watching you volunteer. And they're beginning to understand but they're going to have their own passions the things that are important to them now. What i found is that caregivers a happy to drag their kids along. But they're not happy to have detract law That's also like another situation. So a child says i'm interested in the wales and you're interested in homelessness and i while good luck you and your friends you guys go out there. See about those whales. Let me know right. Let me know how they're doing out there in the ocean. It is not a reciprocal but it is. They have their own and exposure to multiple. Things allows them to be able to decide which ones they wanna give a high on energy to and alone energy. What ends up happening with. Caregivers is like they want. Kinston become professional passionate people. What if you care about math. You do math if you care about the seals. You shouldn't be thinking about those horses. You should be thinking about those other. Like stay focused on this thing that you're passionate about this is not ideal instead. Let your child be completely eclectic and passionate about as many things because they will drill down to a few things but it's not gonna happen overnight. It's inviting to be interested in all of the things that are happening in the world and you can take a little part of each but consistency does work but at the earliest stages before ten children everywhere the interested in everything doing everything it..

They're just very very well. Coached so I know that they've done a good job of marrying those two things at kinston as good as anybody's domina longtime i. Well you know once obviously quarterbacks always the out liar in this game at It can you. Can you hear me because of my connection unstable. I had this gotcha find on. Obviously miss sport that the quarterbacks fieldsman outlier but if you have the jabs scouting Handbook right the one on one for scouting you know build through the offense and defense lines so you look at tampa. I mean they got a great offensive line and they got a defensive line that gave us problems. The first game soak You know that's really the foundation you start for any building. Roster building concept is is. You gotta win. Get the quarterback. Once i take care of you got to build yet good fronts and they have jason's on an outstanding job of putting together oftens line in a defensive line and and that's going to be you know a a a big task for us but You know and you know what they've done again. I i said this before. Kind of their drafts. And you know You know the minnesota safety and the central michigan one of those guys that i thought we were gonna have drafted i. I told the guys when we were getting Couple years ago as like you know mostly has kind of third round bunting he'll be there and tablets them so that's why i was joking earlier. I was like these guys have like the same board that so i felt like jason was swiping from you. Then i know that he's i appreciate what he's saying but we the the respect is mutual. Trust me i could. But was there someone jason that he still from you. I'm sure. I know over the years several times after kansas city's pig i've said shit i you know it's funny also draft a lot of times the player. You have a player that you're focused on and he gets taken right before you pick and then you settle on another guy and that guy becomes a really good player and you don't wanna you don't wanna talk about and the other guy gets cut after two years but you were. Yeah that's probably a. It's probably not a mistake that you guys are looking for some of the same things. Though right like i would think it's probably like the murphy bunning and the the the winfield example. It's probably not completely by. Accident is probably are looking for some of the same things. Andy my first first time. I really sat down and talked to him. What his you know what he looked for. You gotta obviously the quarterback but you know you need to build up your lines and you gotta have good corners so I we do kind of think alike. And i know bruce's of say mindset so we are looking for the same things absolutely all right. Well i'm not gonna ask you as a. I'm not gonna ask you guys for game picks because i think i know how that would go. So he's brett veto.

"It was really discouraging now the children's hospital of philadelphia some officials thereafter. We publish these findings in new york times. A letter to the editor is said. Our research consistently shows a child safety seats and booster seat significantly. Lower the risk of serious injury compared to seatbelt alone. They go on to say that your recommendations to rethink carseat. Laws are quote irresponsible and dangerous. So how do you plead to that because you could say well maybe car seats are not as good as the authorities. Say but as you've said yourself restraining of some kind for a child in a car is way better than no restraining. So what's the harm. Do you think you are being irresponsible and dangerous. I think what's irresponsible and dangerous is accepting mediocrity accepting our existing solutions as if they are the best solution. What i take away from the research is we put in all these laws about child carseats. And we've built these contraptions but then when you look at the data. They're really not doing better. Certainly not much better than this other invention which never had kinston mind shouldn't work at all. So if you believe. Steve levitz research not only are carseats. Not a great safety device button. If you believe the jordan nickerson david solomon research they are also acting as contraception against moore children being born here. Solomon for every child's life that's saved by these laws somewhere between fifty seven and and forty one children on born. That doesn't seem like the right way to think about it. Steve lebanon because there's a difference between a conception that never happened and child whose life is tragically lost. Our goal certainly isn't a maximize the number of people on the planet. Our goal might be to maximize how good the lives of people who are already porn. Has there been improvement in carseat technology or wincing none but there is very little innovation in the industry today. Let's shy mendel. He is an israeli aeronautics engineer. I don't think there have been significant innovation in the last two or three decades and it's all based on the same. Sid built installation styrofoam for protection and plastic and any parent can tell you installing a car. Seat is very intuitive. The facts are approximately seventy percent of child. Carseats are not so correctly which can lead to devastating results. He's seen this firsthand mention names. But we tested the one of the leading child car seats in the world and the system simply detached from the base and flew fifteen feet in there and when we are analyzed. That win understood the engineering lab getting stolen so mendel started a company to build a better car seat. It is called arc. He is certainly not the first person to have this idea. His version uses carbon fiber instead of plastic and some electrons correct installation as well as to signal parents if they have forgotten to take their child out of the back seat when they leave the car. This is another potential side. Effect of laws requiring that children ride in seat's strapped into the back. It called forgotten baby syndrome. Just last here in the us alone fifty two kids died from hit stroking the car if you leave the kid just for a few minutes. Their verve honorable and they can unfortunately died. You might think that. Big automakers and big carseat manufactures would have been collaborating all these years to improve things but we could find little evidence of that now. Am i surprised that that hasn't happened. Steve levitt again. not really because the incentives. Aren't there the car seat manufacturer. Certainly don't want to hand over there pretty lucrative business to the car manufacturers but i think the car manufacturers also are probably terrified of the legal exposure if they start trying to build their own version of carseats into their seats so maybe we were right to be cynical earlier maybe this carseat situation is a perfect illustration of the insidious way we sometimes settle for solutions that satisfy everyone except the constituency. Those solutions were intended to help. In this case children up to an including children who because of carseat regulations are in every born the economist. Melissa carney again. So this idea that well-meaning regulations that might have some benefit have unintended costs that could exceed. The benefit is so fundamental to the way economists approach policy problems and this is a great example of it because it shows a place where i think nobody would have really thought of this right and i mean there are so many examples of this for instance. Glaringly obvious one. That economists debate all the time is if we raised the minimum wage. Will that looks really helpful. But are we actually going to hurt some of the people who are trying to benefit. Or here i'll give you another one of my current favorite halsey ideas to hate. Which is this idea. Free college okay. So most people think how could that possibly be bad. You're gonna get free college. Everyone that's great well from the data. We know that a lot of people who go to college don't complete. We know that. The rates of completion are particularly low in non selective schools in community colleges. You make those schools free and they have even fewer resources to devote so seems an obvious unintended consequences we're going to diminish the quality the carney reserves her most policy wishes for young children. I always have the plate of kids. Just i guess tugs at my heart and so pulled me in as a social scientist as well. Do you feel that kids. Or i mean the sound surprising to say it. But i think it's your argument. That kids are under represented in a lot of public policy. Discussions i feel very strongly that kids get short shrift in our current policy in political environment if we cared about preventing child poverty as we do preventing elderly poverty. We could take care of that issue without that much money. You know as compared to other things we spend in the federal budget when you say that we could take care of those problems. Give me some house and dollar signs attached to it if we just gave every kid who lived in poverty in this country the average social security benefit that would essentially eradicate childhood poverty in this country for a price tag of around one hundred eighty billion dollars. Now one hundred eighty billion dollars sounds like a lot of money pre pandemic. It sounded like a lot. I mean it's very small compared to what we spend on social security disability insurance or compared to what we spend on all sorts of write offs in the tax code for higher income people so again if this were a political priority then it wouldn't be hard for us to move money around in the federal budget or even raise revenue to cover that kind of costs and the point is just. We don't do more for kids in this country. We don't do more for poor kids in this country in particular because they're not a political priority and when you say not a political priority do you mean literally that they don't vote. I mean literally that very little in the federal budget goes toward ensuring children's wellbeing. This is cynical. But i suspect this is not unrelated to the fact that kids. Don't vote in. There's no big lobbying group on behalf of disadvantaged kids it is strange though. Isn't it considering the everyone who is not. Currently a kid has a kid. It's stranger than that because it's really strange is that you know it sounds so trite to say but kids are quite literally the future of country and so a failure to make sure all kids are meeting. Their human potential means that we'll be a less strong society.
