"Of reasons to eighth grade as well. Yeah and then they had to kill her off the opioids because she went nuts on twitter. Yeah not it's not the best it it makes me. It makes me so sad. And then you get into this like very complicated conversation of what do you do when when somebody ends up being like a real real tired of human and and you have their art you appreciate. I think that for the for the time that it existed. Roseanne was excellent But also you know here we are in this in this very complicated time with people that you know just chime chime in and say whatever they want I'll always remember her desk monologue she.

"It's it's a double bill. And the first part of it. So dan dies in. No he has a he has a heart attack and like the penultimate season. And then in the finale in that last season it just goes completely off the rails like roseanne wins the lottery and In the finale it lands on and just justice long monologue from roseanne where she says that. Actually when dan had his heart attack in the penultimate season he died. And that all these details throughout the entire show Roseanne's mom being lesbian and then her sister. I'm going to hell because i can't remember. Now jackie yes was the lesbian and darlene was actually with becky's husband and vice versa And then i just thought it. Was this really beautiful. Monologue about how as mother. She made the narrative changes in their lives that she thought would make them happiest and that any mother's job is to do either family. What will what will help them. The most in helped him become the best people. I think that gets buried because roseanne's real piece of work at this point but it gets buried because people don't like saint elsewhere kinda bayton switch rehab but i think it was a bayton switch with this beautiful message behind it and it just it gets piled on but i think it was a brilliant sitcom that spoke to people in a way that other sitcoms weren't it ended in a way that was so true to the message of the show did reboot was was the the dream not a dream How did they do that. Yeah they undid. They ended all of it. At the beginning of it Roseanne wakes up. Dan's wearing like a sleep apnea mask and she said i had this terrible during the died and they just don't address it again which is lazy riding and honestly kinda the reason that i haven't watched the reboot.

"Oh he's vice versa. He is like me. Deepen ink master right now. While with with dave grohl andrew has no tattoos. I have no tattoos. We both talked about getting tattoos. But at this point blank campuses but the man can't stop watching ink master and just kinda let him let him live his truth that in fort ni- dave navarro. Dave navarro designate grow. You'd say yeah. I messed that up. dave navarro would never different. Yeah no no he. Dave grohl would never dave navarro would yeah hundred very quick story. We used to go to the same jim. He walks on the treadmill black leather pants. No-shirt o wow. Dave navarro did it first. Conversely is there something that you love that. He's like oh god. I'm going to go on the road. Oh absolutely not all of my all of my pop. Culture is right on target. Nothing wrong with it. I was trying to think if there's anything because i know that there. There are things that i've brought him into. I think at this point. It's probably more girls. Because i know that show Like i can see episode title and potentially tell you what the i seen as. That's how many times i've watched it and it's become a asleep show for me that just kind of i like law myself out every night and since we moved in together i think we've made it to the series twice. He's he's done. He doesn't wanna watch gilmore girls anymore spare. Does i lost him. I lost him this year as well. during the cova season of grey's anatomy. I think that. I think it was kind of a mistake. For a lot of television properties to try incorporate covert into their story lines and grey's anatomy was gruesome about it so he He used to watch that with me but he left the room every time it was on this year because it was too much too heavy. His meredith awake yet. I'd are any of us away. Well there's that. I just have sort of like been vaguely aware of what is happening and i everytime wow still out. She's still in a coma. I think it says something about this season. That i legitimately don't i can't tell you. I think that i just started like blacking out at a certain point because it was dark it was it was rough and i don't think that all pop culture entertainment should be a bright and cheery. I mean i watched the walking dead. Well after glenn was killed off spoiler. But that's that's what most people. I don't think that i don't think anybody should torture themselves with tv just to yeah i agree i i. It's telling that like the thing that people are obsessed with right now. Is the white lotus ted lasso. These bright escapist adventures as opposed to you know things that are grounded in the hell that we're all living through crazy crazy slogs. Yeah i've never seen a single episode of that show either and yet. I'm aware that she's on a beach. Yeah dream beach and all the dead people have come back or something it was. It was so informative and its early years a me establishing mild writing voice. Because i think what shonda rhimes can do. The words is insane agree. Same with amy sherman palladino. So many of these female show runner lead series have such a a cadence and a a way of speaking in a tone that i think informed the way that i write and i think it's become evident in probably the past like five or six years. People had tried to recreate that that recreating somebody else's vote base sandwich about to own myself recreating. Somebody else's voice does not work doesn't work as well as a what. The original person did so. I think that's kinda work race ademi's falling apart right now. Just a lot of shows trying to recreate something. That was perfect back when somebody else's moved on from we started watching the original season. Rebe watching it during panic and it does hold up the her pilots especially of all of all shonda shows are just like. That's how it's done. That is how you you make a one hour pilot and grab people correctly. In fact i watched the shehadeh master class And she walks people through how she wrote the scandal pilot. and it's so interesting and She and she goes all the way into it And that is also like such an excellent pilot. But it's really funny because she's working with her actual staff and she's like interacting with them and asking them questions and it's sort of treating class and everyone is so terrified of her flick visibly afraid to to talk about show that they all work on anyway. But it's a great masterclass justin Best classic sitcom and you can't say golden girls. Oh it's roseanne. Roseanne hundred percent. I got the biggest pushback for the longest time because my favorite tv finale of all time is the original roseanne finale. Which what happens remind me..

"So i wanna hear about this boyfriend that you mentioned alan been. How did you meet. Toss everything we're coming up on. Six years We i was on a trip with a couple of friends over in europe. We were hitting. I wanna say france. We hit a couple of different countries but we were on a train. And when i tell the story i feel like an asshole. Because you're in europe. There's enough to look at that. You should be on your phone but add connected to wifi on tender and a matched matched with this guy and we were talking. We were on the side of france. kinda close to switzerland so andrew worked in switzerland at the time and he said that he was moving to dc. And i was like whoa cowboy. This is a lot really quickly. And he. I lived in washington. Dc at the time And he was like no. I'm moving their for work. So i said well once you get there. Let's lead up and hang out and he got there. We went on a date probably four days and him living in the city. And and we've been together ever since he's originally from england so a new to leave the accent untethered for too long would be would be a mistake. Such great accent contracts happening in your house. Well that's i. You know. I i did have a similar thing with michael. Put my fiancee like snags him. The minute he moved here from canada. Because i knew i knew better otherwise he would have seen on. How much better do A boost not dicey does not apply to you andrew but So did you did it. Go into sort of like commit serious commitment territory pretty quickly. Yeah i mean i. we dated. We dated a few other other people casually probably for a month month. And a half and then I think that we got to do around christmas time. We were like it's cold and we really seem to like each other. Just wanna give this a go for a little bit and yeah we've been giving it a go for i six years. We did long distance for a little while because he lived down in dc Working at the job that he came over for and his against green card status is tied to that job But of the very very very few silver linings of the pandemic. They allowed him to move up to new york. So we've been shacked up about a couple of cats. We watched survivor every night. He gets screeners out of it. I get a good accent. And it's been it's been love ever since it is a win win for but i love it. I was gonna ask. How lockdown has been in new york city. It's i mean it's weird. Because i i think that most people that come from another part of the world you moved to new york to experience new york right to kind of be immersed in in the people on the restaurants in the places so it's it's been strange to kind of be locked inside but if there's anywhere in the world that i would want to be on lockdown i feel like it's ear people have taken it so seriously and they have on the on the up and up such a respect for this crazy thing that we're going through that there's a bit of a camaraderie in the app. I i you know. I think about if all of this had gone down. You know. we have colleagues and they're certainly tons of people who are twenty five and living you know four to an apartment And to like just be stuck with those people. All the time has got to be absolutely. It's it's it's gotta be it's gotta be taxing. It's gotta be taxing. I loved my roommates. But if i had been if we'd been in prison together for a year and a half would have been trouble for sure i mean that's that's a dynamic that i hope to never have to experience again. I've loved the roommates that have had. There's definitely a grating that can happen at least around around the wintertime where people aren't getting out as much sotoudeh spent the past year and a half. I think there are probably some incredible relationships that have come out of that. Just that person that you manage not to strangle and y'all got through it together for so long. I think that's probably gonna lead to some released special connections the future thankfully. I didn't have to go through that. You two are going strong. Thank hadn't know you may or may not by farm in tennessee per Father's places but On beyond that is is marriage on the table. Is that up for discussion we We've discussed it and we love each other a lot. I think Something that we've talked about is for for queer people especially andrew evangelicals wild but in england which is such a such a whole different animal. What looks like it's. I think it's thinking can be equally kind of suffocating but with like a charming accent on which is what i would hope for if you're going to be suffocated but we've we've talked about andrew interacts as well. He does a lot in the tennis face. But he's also big movie buff so marriage for us and that kind of next step always seem so foreign growing up that we've agreed to support each other in pursuing these these dreams that we have like. I get the opportunity to write for esquire. He's been writing about tennyson. These other things on the side. So i think it's in the future. I think it's in like the future. So we're not rushing through and are you at a tennis person do play. Is that part of your life. I am now more so than it used to be Plus i mean there's tennis tennis guys are very particular type that i've come to appreciate like man. It's an it's what it is. You know. I find a new favorite every day and an anderson words in it so long as said tennis player. But yeah i tend to stay in in my own lane. I think it's good. When you have interests that you can like bring somebody into without having share that space so undergoes often watches a slams. And i'll pop in and pretend like i know something and then go back in the other room and watch a watch a good movie. You're listening to now or something. Is there a piece of art. A a an artist movie television show. That andrew loves that horrifies you oh god.

"Carrie underwood's very solid princess in the kingdom But i would yet dolly's number one course you in fact did a podcast about dolly. Parton herself yes. I did my year of dolly. I two cease-and-desist. I've ever gotten within a couple of episodes. I got the nicest letter from her lawyers saying to stop using her signature because it indicated that she somehow backed the podcast and that while it seemed like a lovely project that she did not want to be directly involved with hurt But it was nice to know that i was one step closer and it's a word to the wise. Don't just google a png and use it in your personal projects. What is the podcast all about. It started in nineteen sixty seven And then covered one year of her career every episode One year for career and one album every episode until we got to the president and it just so happens that she has Fifty two years of experience fifty two weeks and fifty studio albums so it worked out pretty nicely very nice. What is your what is your key dolly property but is your is it. An album is there. Movie isn't a ride at dollywood. There of man dollywood. That's a that's a whole other conversation for a different time When i would ask started interviewing people the one way that i would settle myself My first interview ever was dolly parton. I worked at aarp. I did an interview for their magazine. And i don't think people realize the interview. I was given that was panicked. And she stopped me in the middle of this interview and said honey. Where are you from. 'cause i couldn't get a sentence out and i told her and she said oh my god you know the kfc and the taco bell is up on chapman highway but yet it's ten minutes from my house. It's about twenty minutes north. Don't tell anybody that so. Here we are notices dali all our How was the nicest thing. So when i did interviews. After that i would always if i started getting nervous i would find a way to bring in dollywood now would always tell people that if i died and woke up one day dollywood i would know that i had done more good in mice than bad so dollywood might be the property. It might be like my my number one for dahlie really do.

"Moments with. What's his name. Murray but Yeah that that's the last thing that we saw. I don't like my level of attraction to jake lacy. But i'm i'm i've made peace with it. He reminds he looks wise as always reminded me of guys that i went to high school with and in this character behaves like the guys that i went to high school with and that is a primal thing for me and i wish i could take off at. That's my full review of the white lotus. I was in a fraternity. you in a fraternity. Yeah i don't. I don't which why delta kappa epsilon which d.c notoriously has a bit of dicey reputation Does but at night i like. I like to believe that i went to a really small school so we were kind of like a ragtag gang of like guys. It just didn't really fit in. And i like i wanted more friends that were guys so i joined the fraternity and whatnot but there is jake. Lacy hans me in a way because part of what i loved about the fraternity is that fraternity guys are supposed to be the absolute worst. But i find them fascinating and so lovable in the worst way. You hadn't. Yeah jake lacy has that that kind of energy for me like he definitely did some questionable stuff in a fraternity. And he's fine. Yeah would how. How was pledging for you or or were rushing. Call russian yet rushing pledging. I mean. I was i kind of feel like i was a bit of a diversity higher. We have a we have a ton. I'm straight guys. So they they brought me in and so you were out. I was like out ish. I was like hokey pokey of like the coming out process like an out and out but then i had. I had a terrible coming out in college Where i got. It was a college of probably two thousand people and a girl revealed at a party like announced at a party. And if you are at school of two thousand and there's a party on saturday night at that party because it's a school of two thousand and i remember. There was an emergency meeting with the fraternity. A couple days afterward and i thought. Oh my god. They're gonna vote me out of this fraternity because now they know just like fully out as gay and The group got together and the meeting was essentially to get all of us in one place to let me know that there was a unified front behind me So for all the shitty things that happened in fraternities which all. that's very very real and very problematic. those guys were great for me. That's awesome that makes me happy. And then i'd just stuck it out. And i keep in touch with them individually but i'm definitely not that guy that's like keeping up with the alumni from the fraternity after the fact ya not going back for the alumni tailgate until jake lacy shows up until he shows up and he will be. I'll be there time. Yeah that is a traumatic experience being outed in a small in small school. That can't be good. I mean it's a. It's a real journey but i i was always the kid as well like the writing on the wall. I told my parents growing up like my first crush was susan sarandon and if that didn't tip them off to like what the future held. I can't really help them. So god Who who were you as a kid. Otherwise i mean what were the other signs or inklings. i've always i've always had a deep. We were country music house. Hard core growing up. Just let top to bottom. And i was always really big into dali reba. Mcentire martina mcbride so. I think that there's probably a lotta telltale signs. But i also my dad's like this big burly redneck guy but his interests totally just kind of dovetailed perfectly end. His favorite movies are tombstone. And also burlesque share and christina aguilera unexpected unexpected. And i feel like if anybody gave me a good indoctrination of the queer pop culture canon. It was him because he he celebrated everything we had like. Waylon jennings playing one minute. And then him. Knowing every single word to donna summer song the next this is the coolest man ever heard of. I love this man. I love this man. I'm dying to meet this man. He is a disaster. He's he's a good guy. Hey how how was coming out to to him to your the rest of your family. I mean it was. It was pretty awful at first we were we were on vacation and he here probably four or five years ago because i held out for a long time because even that coming out in college i was. I was at a place where i was like. I'll kind of have this life over here and then keep things at bay at home and coming out and probably four or five years ago and it didn't. It didn't go well but we're such a such a close family and it's a it's a really small family just me my mom and dad and my brother growing up so even through the the difficulty we've stayed close in. He's he's come around sense Last took my boyfriend home this spring to meet him for the first time and he had a couple of shots of tequila which is kind of poisoning choice and he took andrew fee boys ever thought of buying a farm in tennessee and it was like jesus christ. We're going to go back to new york now. So he's he's come around but it was. It's a bit of a journey. I think those are the stories that i'm always interested in hearing about 'cause very rarely i feel like do you do most people fall on one side of the spectrum or the other. There's always a bit of a complication so bitter own complications. But we got there. Yeah you have had Your father review movies. Yes for esquire dot com Cats i believe has cats in the most. Recent was the prom on netflix six. I love to hear his take on the problem. He loved it. i don't understand. i don't know if he got it in his head that he was supposed to give a positive review but he loved. He loved the problem He had some some choice. Things to say about nicole kidman that we decided to to et it. Okay to share them with us. I mean it was a lot about her legs. He's a big. he's a big fan. And it's it's weird. We used to have conversation about carrie underwood's legs as well. He's he's a guy. And i'm a leg guy but i i think it's in a different way because i'm always like i always have this idea that i could be on drag race one day. I've never done dragon know very little about it But i i always felt like if i had carrie underwood's legs i could do anything and so we have an equal appreciation in his. I would say the biggest chunk that we cut out of the problem was his ode to nicole. Kidman slag since. He's very happy with them as he should be. So carrie underwood. There is a poster over your shoulder on the wall. Do is she sort of your number. One cheered queen of.

"To win. So it's it shifted a little bit since it started originally rooting for eureka. Because in a way she's kind of hometown queen. She's about an hour and a half from where i'm from originally in tennessee. But i think at this point. I'm all in on kylie. Wow yeah she's really amped it up as the season's gone on and i like i like a story where people kind of defy expectation so again. It'd be kylie erotica. Rye love russia. I actually like very happy off the entire top side. I would be thrilled to see any one of them. When i feel like we're present very good hands with all of them but yeah i agree. It's been an excellent. It's an excellent excellent season. It's just. I mean it's summers. Always a weird time for tv as it is like even in this age of like netflix and hulu and every other streamer throwing all kinds of stuff out Summer can still be a little bit of a no-man's-land so it's nice to have not just kind of a staple show but a show that's really produced like a good season of people that were kind of unexpectedly lovable. It sounds like a drag but it's not So yeah it's been. It's been a lot of fun watching that. I've you know i wonder about this with all of the all. The culture writers are you Does the fact that you have to write about stuff or synthesized stuff or be on a deadline for thoughts about stuff. Does that affect how much you like things like you. Does it take away the joy of tv movie watching for you knowing that you're going to have to take a little a little bit. And then sometimes i feel like it's almost involuntary i don't i was looking it up beforehand because i didn't want wanna break embargoes but there is a series coming out on netflix. At the beginning. September called q force Which is a animated queer lad. I think it's like a cia group. Trailer came out today. Yeah like wanda sides and on my gosh completely blanking map. Yeah and. I've enjoyed that so much and i think sometimes while i'm watching things like i immediately start thinking like. Oh i wanna talk to somebody. That's associated with this or i want to ride a review so it's almost a bit of a catch twenty two in the if i enjoy something i want ride about it but almost if i'm assigned to write about something or something that we should definitely be covering i go into a bit begrudgingly. That's how it went into the white lotus. I watched the first episode the summer. And then staved it off for like three episodes and then benched at all. Have you seen all all. I've seen all so i've seen as not the finale and i i'm just excited for everyone Okay so we we were behind and still are behind but we watched a couple. Last night ended with the Intimate backyard dining.

"That my mom would like dust often like vaguely alluded to the contents of and that was a jesus was terrifying. He was on the front. He had that face that everybody knows kinda like staring at you and you had terrifying. But i kind of jesus facing he's like it's like welcoming but he's he's pissed he's watching. Yeah he's an he if you don't dust him quickly enough like he he will find a way back into your life. he'll snap. yeah i mean. I did kind of the typical seventh thing. Went to vacation. Bible school and I just kept like stumbling. On god like i really kind of led the way of my family formerly going to churches and the more the more than i went the the worst experience scott so i kind of feel like ended up doing a bespoke version of the christian faith but there was there was a lot of the toxic kind of messaging. That came out. So i think it it takes a long time to untangle that unfortunate that you know something that mattered to me stuck with me but yeah it gets it gets dicey in there. There was one time where the whole youth group went to see the passion of the christ in a group screening. And i remember sitting in the audience and looking around and everybody had their hands like held up toward the screen is jesus get into like shit. Beat out of him and people are like yes. Praise god and i was like this. Isn't it right like. I don't think we're supposed to be like celebrating this so i went and got some popcorn. That's the that's the sacramento that you needed in that moment. Yes the way to do it now. I wanna get deep into your your viewing and listening habits but we do have breaking news and certainly you have heard this. It broke in the last twenty minutes. Yes do you know about you. Is it britney spears his father stepping down as conservative. Jamie spears has stepped down as conservator britney has been freed sort of. I don't know maybe it's close. It's a step in the right direction. Certainly former home affiliate guest babs gray and test barker have changed the world toxic and that that that sparked a memory they have a terrific podcast out by the conservatory about the whole. The whole thing What are your. What are your brittany thoughts in the moment. Did you take the news. I'm so happy that it seems that. There's some kind of progress being made because in in my research the situation. It never seemed that she didn't want to be in some kind of conservative ship. Like i think that protections from what i've picked up from what little she said that it's good for her. It's like constructive so long as it's a person that is halfway decent managing it without some kind of like agenda. That isn't hers. So i'm just happy that she's she's getting voice and she's getting to lead her life in a way that she wants. She wants to go to louisiana like go in the middle of nowhere and have two more kids in liberal life in obscurity. Hope that's exactly what she gets to do. Yeah yeah the topless videos what are your. What's your take. I mean if you wanna be topless. I get anxious about being topless and society welcomes at from from men. So if she's feeling it go out and do a girl free. Timmy three. I i just i want to know what other stuff that you are watching. But there's one thing i wanted to bring up in particular my breath mundane at a week is Vowel the val kilmer documentary on amazon. You seem that. I know is it. It lives up to the hype and then some it's so beautiful you'll saab. He's just such a special guy. I feel like We're lucky to have him. I dunno definitely check it out Boat didn't see what else is in your queue at the moment justin. So i don't know. I was making a list of this beforehand because i wanted to not like fall back on our old favorites. My boyfriend and i've really watched all forty seasons of survivor since the pandemic started so when people ask what we've been watching immediately survivor as if i'm not listening to anything in the immediate zeitgeist that is actually zeitgeist. Yes at literally. Every third guest of this show says that exact yes. It's so good. It's so good. I would kill somebody. I mean i've wanted to be a writer since i was a little kid. But if somebody popped in my inbox right now and said unfortunately you would have to give up your job. But we have a slot on survivor. I would. I would call editor chief michael immediately and samsa. Sorry i've gotta go. I would do it in a heartbeat in a and esquire editor in chief. Michael sebastian would get it because is why survivor. And how his wife to sally. Sally sock shuman as she was known back then season which season. Oh gosh i wanna say third teen. She was she was early. She's old school and she got she got seven. She has one of my favorite exit lines. She holds up a vote in paraphrasing. She said i don't really care. Which one of you goes. I don't like any of you anymore. Wow and i remember thinking like that's that's an icon. Yeah lover already. Never seen never seen a full episode of that show in my life. It's it'll save you one day it'll save all of us.

A hundred percent nineteen ninety five. I was like everybody come on really. He's young just in kirkland. So justin's takes on tv movies. Everything are always so good to read it. And i want to dive into what you are watching But i wanted to start with something And i don't know if you've seen this yet matt but pray away. Netflix documentary about conversion therapy. Ooh just in your thoughts. So i mean this is such a complicated crossroads. Because i grew up. I grew up like southern. Baptists vary avenge helical And so i have a bit of soft spot. I guess if that's the right word of driving to reconcile those worlds in struggling with it but man it's a downer of a documentary and we were talking before after you saw dave and there's a i wouldn't say at a bit of insincerity too but there's just a vibe of these people really kind of understand the gravitas of of what they signed onto what they subjected other people too as well as themselves so yeah it was a bit of a darkwa ju i. It focuses matt and listener. Vm seen it on on people who ran Conversion therapy places and people who were the faces of the ex gay movement most of whom now are openly queer. Or there's one and they don't even actually speak to her but there is there is one Who's who's still at it. The the the ex wife of one of the talking heads and she's she's still at it and there is a person who says you know. I used to be trans. And then i found. Jesus remains remains x. Trans or whatever throughout but it's it is so chock full of these peop- the like the stories of these people and how they're like well. I realized i was wrong. But it's like none of their stories of how they realize they were wrong. Make any sense at all. It's like one of them is like oh you know is in san francisco the night proposition. Eight past and there were so many people crying in that night. I just everything changed for me. It's like not didn't that's the grinch that's not real. That's not human behavior. That's like you don't there's more to it. And it's a long process than that and it's it just seems like all of these people who were on stages preaching all this fucking nonsense are now on different stages preaching stuff. That is a nonsense. But it's like. I don't know that i can believe you hit now either. Know if you're that easily bamboozled i don't get i don't know i don't know where the time of your personal story comes in where you sit down and listen you know. It's just i. I couldn't i really hated it. A really needed it from an optimistic standpoint. I like. I like to believe that you know something is horrible as as conversion therapy perhaps it's too personal to really reveal the deep dark details. Fortunately i never went through anything like that. But i can imagine it's pretty traumatic we've written stories and you get an a little deep and you realize that you're not able to tell the story that you set out to tell which i think is fine. It happens but also if the details weren't there just don't tell the story and that's kind of what it felt like that. maybe there was something not revealed. I think that's the only like optimistic way. You can look at it that maybe it was just too personal. Otherwise it's that's a pretty intense switch to just kind of flip one day and be like crying and it was like i'm hurting people and it's like yeah no hsieh gonda. Yeah you knew you were hurting people. Come on and i'm just not. There's several of them. We see them in their in their happy lives. And it's like i don't i it's not that i want to be like living in hell but i don't. I'm not personally invested in your business right now. Like you haven't earned a happy ending for me right now. You know like if you if you were killed kids you know. I don't know it's it's rough now. You die okay so you did not go through like a fit like you know official conversion therapy but certainly this sort of low key behavior modification that all us queer kids in areas where there aren't queer adults in any large volume. Like that is the thing for sure you. Yeah okay okay. So i still. I'm working on something right now. About this i still identify i would. I would call myself a christian. But i do it in kind of like a hushed whisper. Because it's there's a lot of bad going on with with christianity and evangelicalism in particular in america. But i i think it's just a really personal experience and i think that if you have some kind of line of faith that you rely on so long it doesn't hurt anyone else or put anybody else out of their way. That's kind of your business But growing up. I mean we had. We had a big wide bible on.
"kirkland" Discussed on Coffee Podcast by Cat & Cloud
"Nice to not have to like have to retail the whole story of whatever you're doing whether it's like. Oh yeah. I'm here to meet someone for a car and it's like okay. Who what. yeah like. How are like oh. Yeah i ordered this and then this is happening or even if you ride in for guest service online catalogue of everything. It's like oh yeah. I saw you last ordered this. That and the other and this is your address and cool. We're gonna we're gonna make happen. I noticed that was one of the first things when you were talking about how they agree with you. It's like oh so and so it was like when you walk in and you hear that like oh you're coming from the car it's all got share here. It's like how yeah they have a huddle or something like a little more near nothing from you know. Well i guess they got the money for the service they got from you but that's nothing. No you know what. I'm saying like that was cheap. You know what i mean. You are almost literally a nobody to them your coming and leaving in. You're never giving them business again. Guaranteed i'm never coming back there. Just because i don't live there if i did live there all the time but it's just they know that and they're still just in the zone. I just really appreciate that stuff. The intention -ality like i was thinking still so much on may it's kind of a tangent but just that whole idea of understanding like the the literal mission and vision of accompanying and like that the company existed do those things and trying to as a both team member and somebody who works at a separate like to include yourself but also to separate yourself from the whole meaning like okay no matter what happens with me here. I'm either contributing to this thing or not. But it's this thing we're all doing together and it's it sounds like they're all men in congress. Whoever the other guy was you're talking about eric gave matt and chris. Whoever is you know what i'm saying like. It seems like they were all committed some thing and you can hear that. Just the way that somebody who's not going to be back ever is going to experience the place i don't know if it's kirkland thing. But it's kirkland just killing it or not killing california might not become. Because here's here's another level of service that doesn't have anything to do with auto place but the people that i got the car from so they had all the service records for the car and they brought all those. They had all the documentation i was like. Oh know he's looking at washington law. Because i left in a hurry. And i was like oh i didn't realize i needed a like a bill of sale because in california you just sign over pink slip and do that whole thing there you the title and you need a bill of sale and the dude michael that i got the car from. Oh we printed one out for you. Also i went on down to the dmv. And i picked you up a temporary trip permit so you can post it in the back window and it'll you won't get you over three three days to drive home without having to get pulled over because washington when you sell a car. The owner keeps the plates. Yeah so. I didn't have plates on the car. So they're like you go like this is just make your trip a little easier. You don't have to worry about it. I was like dude this killer. I don't know. I was just having a good week. Kirkland thing is a kirkland thing. Maybe it's a kirkland thing. maybe it's a kirkland. maybe it's like a quality of life around. The i don't know i don't know i've been exploring. Just transfigure that shit.

Because if there weren't union soldiers there to enforce it it literally. Nothing in did not change of your life if you were enslaved human being in texas. Which was the westernmost state. There was very little union presence throughout the war so it was as if nothing had happened in fact there were slave owners. He moved west to continue. The practice of slavery moved to texas for that purpose so this day this was a big day. He arrived with almost two thousand troops. Some of whom were united states colored troops and they enforced this order. What what kind of the history. Of june teeth in the legacy. It's only recently really bad. It's become more widely known.

Zero COVID-19 cases at Seattle-area's long term care facilities for first time since pandemic
"Has been a year since the country learned about the first Corona virus outbreak in the nation at a Kirkland nursing home. Covert 19 ravage the Life care center this week, King County health officials announced. This is the first week without a single case reported from a long term care facility in the county since the outbreak began. Almost Michelle Esteban reports on the hope and healing. Oh, this whole week has been emotional Nurse Kathy Lombard is back where it all started. First covert 19 outbreak in the country. The first known covert death in the U. S. They're going to come back. You have no hesitation about going back. And then it is her first time back to the life care center of Kirkland in the years just to be here. And to see the people I took care of. She found one of the patients right away to sing her smile made me happy for Kathy. It is essential to remember the first victims the ones taken by Covitz. What significance does this place have for you? A lot of love. Is a lot of love shown here for the residents. One year ago, she volunteered to work inside. What had quickly become known as the epicenter of Corona virus was one of the first ones to volunteer to come here. And I'm glad I did. And she worked for the life care center in Puyallup when she learned the Kirkland facility had been ravaged by the coronavirus patients, and even more staff were testing positive here. I called here. Hey, I want to help. I want to be there helping you. Within three hours of that call. She was inside the baker unit at the life Care center assigned to 18 patients, her family and friends worried for her safety. She never got sick, right? I never really worried about. It was just too busy to even really think about it because there was work that needed to be done. Lombard knew 10 of the residents who lost their lives. It's hard. You just know that you did the best you could for them, and she could have been on the inside and seeing how hard we were working. But a federal inspection home found critical issues inspector said. Those issues put residents in immediate jeopardy and imminent danger, resulting in at least 37 deaths from the coronavirus. They were the first victims of this awful virus that we now find ourselves living in Deputy Los Angeles is mother, Twyla Ah Lifecare resident. Died in early March.

Um e say goodbye In my heart. I said goodbye better if her service that we had there just wasn't time. You're kind of helpless because you can't be there and you can't do anything for him for this on Lee Child A plea Mask up, Take precautions get vaccinated and hopefully with the vaccine.

All three suspects are now booked into the King County jail on suspicion of first degree
Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?
"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long
Seattle Nursing Home That Was the Original Epicenter of the U.S. COVID-19 Outbreak Begins Vaccinations
"News this morning, covert 19 vaccinations have begun at the Seattle area nursing home that was the early epicenter of the nation's Corona virus Outbreak. Patients and staff at Life care center of Kirkland started receiving their initial doses of the Fizer vaccine. On Monday. It was the site of the nation's first covert 19 deaths. They had roughly 50 deaths back in March.
Why the 2020 census matters
"Kwanza in an earlier episode of the ten news. We learned about the. Us census the once every ten years event where every single person living in the us and its territories is counted recently. The supreme court decided to postpone making a decision about whether undocumented immigrants should or should not be counted in the census. It's a big deal because the numbers help determine how resources get distributed to communities as well as how many seats dates have in the house of representatives and their number of electoral college votes. We'll have to wait and see where this decision goes. But in the meantime let's revisit our previous story from correspondent. Pamela kirkland all about the twenty twenty census. It happens once every ten years and it's old like really really old but it's also something very important that every person living in the united states is encouraged to participate. In what am i talking about. It's the census but what is it. And why should you care if you're counted. We asked alex and her mom yasmina boa. Who know an awful lot about it to make sense of the census. Hi i'm alex. I am a student and i'm twelve years old. Hi my name is. Yes men in. I in alex's mom and i became interested in twenty twenty senses. Be some work. That i was doing at count the nation which is associated with the usc annenberg innovation lab. What exactly is the census for people who don't know so it's a survey that happens. Once every ten years of everyone who lives in the united states for example they count newborns children. Teenagers adults teachers parents and grandparents basically everyone the first census an seventeen ninety. That's a long long time running in. Why does the census count matter. The census data matters for kids and families because this is how the government gives money to our communities base up. The number of people who live in a city or state also called our population. The money pays for funding for schools and teachers libraries parks health clinics breakfast and lunch programs at some schools and college scholarship money for some students. The census money pays for a lot. Which is why. It's important for our family to participate and for all of us be counted. No senses numbers also determine how many representatives go to washington dc to represent us in our needs. So i live in california. And they're almost forty million people who live in the state which is the largest population in the country and california has fifty three representatives out of four hundred thirty five but this may change based off of the two thousand twenty cents census numbers. Where did this passion for the census in the census count. Come from well. My mall would not stop talking about it because she worked on it. She got me super interested in it after the many times. She's talked about it. Okay mom so how much were you talking about. The census to alex ally in. It's something that i wasn't really too aware of Myself they didn't realize how important it was to everything that we do all the services that we use in our communities. So when i learn more about it than i thought it was really important for a alex to realize that into be able to talk to her friends in her peer group about why it is important that everyone participates. If you are a kid. How do you participate in the census. So you can help your parents fill out. The census online by going to my twenty twenty census dot gov. It takes less than ten minutes. If you aren't counted now you won't be able to be counted for another ten years with super important if your child is ten years old in their parent forgets to count them. They can't be counted again until they're twenty years old. So the importance of being counted over the next ten years really affects. Everyone's lie every single day so working together to make sure. Our communities in schools are stronger by doing something that takes seven minutes over. The internet is something that i think we should all try to do. The younger generation has so much power. And by just asking your parents to the census can do like make a big difference and even just like going on the internet and researching it on your own can be very interesting and beneficial and you could tell your parents about it and at the end of the day is it's a really good thing to do. The census count is currently closed. And the next time it comes around in twenty thirty you may be filling it out yourself. Have you heard about. The world's loneliest. Elephant name is calvin and he lived alone at a zoo in pakistan for eight years and that was until early december

Former Seattle team owner sentenced in rape case, awaits hearing for tax fraud
"Former owner of a local women's pro soccer team has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for a rape committed over a decade ago. An update from Cuomo's Corwin Hate Dion Earl, former owner of the Seattle Impact indoor soccer team, was sentenced Friday and King County Court to 33 months for the 2009 3rd degree rape of a Kirkland massage parlor attendant, The Seattle Times reports. It's a case that was once dismissed for lack of evidence, then later revived. It's the latest in a string of troubles for Earl. He's currently jailed in Maricopa County, Arizona after he was sentenced last year to 12 years for sexually assaulting women he had hired as baby sitters. And it could get even worse for the former Seattle Pacific University soccer star. He's been indicted in a federal tax fraud scheme worth $1.1 million.
As COVID-19 Vaccine Nears, Employers Consider Making It Mandatory
"Or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness Should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more Only a couple of months into the pandemic. Holly Smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, Washington, would not reopen the diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's She's already already told told her her staff staff you you are are going going to to get get vaccinated. vaccinated. Some Some of of my my young young millennials millennials are are like like Saran Saran taking. taking. This This is is a a directive directive like like as as a a mandate. mandate. Is Is that that how how you you mean mean it? it? And And that's that's that's that's a scary thing. You know, like Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things, but you know, we have people who live with their parents. We have people who lived with her husband, who has diabetes. The staff have to be healthy and safe before you could move forward, she says, you know for vaccinated I think I can move out in the world and be responsible for these 28 or 30 people. Plus all the people coming in. Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes, but her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management, He says Each request must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate. After all, they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like Covad. It's real and it's devastating. So I think the dynamic changes. Employers are actually going to position this as I need to do this full stop. Now. There are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine, most commonly hospitals. Dr. James McDevitt is dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some 14,000 people, doctors, nurses, med students, even the clerks. They're sitting in a computer that don't see live patients. It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides. Legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case someone has a bad reaction. Even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it. Mandate and then who are sued by employees who contracted Taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing, but they're in a tough spot, and they're going to need help getting through this.
UCL Shock-tar for Real Madrid
"Start, we don meltdown in Madrid thaw shocked shocked by we'd be so good and Writers. Joining us is Alex Kirkland Alex. Let's get right into it. What happened. I mean what happened was a disastrous five minutes of POCO from. Real. Madrid that I saw from them was one of the worst. I can remember to be honest it was a defensive horror show off against the shack talk team who let's not forget what may say six first choice players and a number of substitute says well, row without second reynolds the CAP team at it was just they fell off the conceding that I go they went completely to pieces gossamer spend back in the second off and pulled it back to three to lake your ruled out but that one make any once again just how bad they were in that I just bad. The. Made. Some big decisions with a view towards the classical at the weekend. He leaves out and he got lauded for leaving out crews and Ben's. Alex, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt a tiny bit because I say, Hey, it shocked are minus six. You're at home you're motivated because you had a stinker last week and against God and deserve to lose. Maybe this is a Good Game Benza and crows today off right. The problem is when Bensimon doesn't play the team, just don't function in attack a loop. Yovich again, last night he had one pray tame header on saw and that was the throughout the day and he was. As. Roma, chasing the comeback which tells you everything you need to know cross you could understand may be giving him a a great by the problem is with Raimondo ready missing can you really leave out these other subpoenas if the of the team nine know the Ramos isn't always a nice consistent defend that but you have to heat has been that he's got a slight meet problems. He wouldn't have let the game just get away from the way didn't stop and the this. I mean Rafael Veran. Dreadful and this is the session dreadful Champions League game in a row for him because let's not forget he was to blame but both goals they began. In the summer alongside etta mealy Tout Stewart looks nothing like being worth fifty million euros around with Chip Light Volume Marcello I love Marcelo it to be honest like. An ex player he kind of jumped the shark awhile ago. s the Monday was laid out. Position was appropriate. You want to go away with any any credit on the right hand side courtois, dot them out of trouble a couple times it wasn't just the tall maitree chances and took them. Three one on ones the coach manager save over the course of the nineteen minutes. So it could have been even worse I mean less season they lost. The game of the Champions League in Paris they had a really rocky start. This is didn't. On yeah, they came back. They weren't playing Schachter. Owner but let me finish this. Season so I don't think. A rocky a shaky start like this one is anything new for Sodano, for the club however I you Janis making mistakes I think the players only are not up to the task mentally physically and technically as a group not forget didn't sign anyone in the summer. A few of the players left Bahamas pressure is really under Alex because he's done of course and everything that he's achieved as a player and manager that club is huge but that's two defeats in a row obese two different competition, and then the classic the weekend will happen if they lose is three in a row. Or do you still think that still has enough credit in the bank to two last regardless of what happens on the weekend? Of course, he's calling credit in the bank. He's got more credit than anyone because what you've done by do you think he doesn't situation is somewhat unique because even though he's won two titles as a coach, even though you on those three genders lease in a row, there are still some nagging questions I think and legitimate questions about aspects of of the jump that he does and some people and least includes people at the club at Rome Madrid at the. Question exactly how good coaches to spy everything that he's not in terms of trophies one I don't think there's any risk of him being sacked in the short sample, but we'd see Dan would say is that you can never entirely ruled out the rescue him deciding to walk away if things aren't going well, and if he feels like he's not the right man for the joke is surprised when away lost time having just wonder champion slate a milk expect that to happen right now by. Signing the we can discount entirely. This is very different. Coach doesn't necessarily need you get. He doesn't need it in the same way that other coaches to. Feels like I say he's not the right map for the talk. If you will I I completely agree that he would walk like getting say like Oh goodness can go I mean. Again he said like tomorrow is GonNa be Sunny. Who who can come up with you feel I listen I would point out that when he walked away last time, it's because two of his superstars neither films there anymore both of through. Hissy, fits through toys out of the Pram after the game and he said I. Have enough of that.
Why are so many Seattle Police Department officers leaving the city?
"Seattle Police chief Adrian DEA says two people have been arrested for attacking officers and setting fires at riots. First Jacob Greenberg, the essence. Greenberg is the guy I seen in a video, swinging hard with a metal baseball bat and hitting an officer on his helmet, according to charging documents after the real attack, the national from Kirkland Express remorse. Not for potentially fatally assaulting itself. For the fact that the officer was wearing a helmet that most likely saved his life, Diaz says. Greenberg later contacted Danielle McMillan. Greenberg also texted a friend that he would like to And I quote slit every SPD throat, Diaz says. Both McMillan and Greenberg then threw firebombs at the Seattle police, East Precinct and Police Officers Guild headquarters is clear from their actions that they're not here. They're not peacefully protesting anything. You are purposely and methodically planning attacks on police officers and our facilities. Greenberg is charged with first degree assault, first degree attempted arson and first degree reckless burning. McMillan faces first degree attempted arson charges. Chief Diaz says he supports the right of people to peacefully protest. But this just regard for people's lives and safety by throwing flaming objects into a business. This can't be our new normal. Business is small and large or struggling during this pandemic and is completely unacceptable that this is an ongoing violence is on ly com pounding their challenges, and he says it's an important distinction because arming yourself In this case, a baseball bat. Winding up, taking a swing and landing a direct hit to the head to the head of anyone, including a Seattle police officer is a brutal crime. Potential fatal crime. This is not a peaceful protests. This's not civil disobedience. This is illegal and this is violence. You will be arrested. This comes as protesters demand big cuts to Seattle police D. As acknowledges. Dozens of officers have left the department for us is really about showing all of the work that's having There is a requirement or need for a police officer. Every day day in and day out. We recovered 2400 shell casings this year over 820 guns were on pace to actually go out and probably recover over 1000 guns this year forth out of the last 11 years we are shootings have are at the highest level of the last 11 years. We've had, you know, a significant increase in homicides. And and so we have to realize that this there are some huge safety issues when it comes to violent crime in this city, and we need officers to be able to respond. And I need to keep the department asshole as I can. I need to make sure that I have officers to be able to respond to all those calls for service. And you know, there are things that I would love for. You know, maybe Social Services T take off her plate. But the reality is is Thursday was a great example of the officer involved shooting where you had somebody that had clearly mental health issues. But social services not gonna end up addressing somebody with a flaming torch, you know, running and throwing in an officer in their car. And so the reality is, we do need our officers. We need to have some level of safety and that is, I think the discussion that happens every single day in this city that people were starting to realize we do need officers. We want to make sure they're well trained. They're holding held accountable for their actions when they've done wrong, and you know that's as a chief. That's what I'm doing soon. The City Council begins its deliberations on the police department's budget for 2021. Its members have said they're seeking to reduce funding to police in order to support a reimagining of the forests that would allow for a rethink of law enforcement in Seattle.
Seattle Police announce arrests related to arson, bat assault on officer
"Charging decision in the Briana Taylor case of a living back at the end of September, September 24th or so there was national protests about that decision. And, of course here in Seattle, there were protests. And that was the weekend that we saw the one protester who said the officer ruled his bicycle over his head. And in that same demonstration, there were some fires lit Dumpster fires, things like that. And then a cop that was hit in the back of the head. With a baseball bat. So originally there was an arrest of a Jacob Greenberg, who's 19 for the Dumpster fires, And that was several weeks ago He was released and then last week he was rearrested again. Shifty, has talked about the arrest today. The actions alleged in these cases clearly demonstrate the ongoing violence. It continues to be connected to some of the riots occurring across the city. Jacob Greenberg is charged with assault in the first degree for hitting an ESPY officer in the head with a metal bat. So hard during a riot that the officer's helmet was cracked. I'm sure you've seen some of these photos. These disturbing images on your broadcast and on social media. According to charging documents after the brutal attack, the national from Kirkland Express remorse Not for potentially fatally assaulting itself. For the fact that the officer was wearing a helmet that most likely saved his life. Greenberg also texted a friend that he would like to and I quote slit every SBD throat. So that was in the charging documents of this same 19 year olds who is the stepson of a former state lawmaker who Is accused now of hitting that officer over the head with the bat. Did you guys see that It was viral video when actually so he's not charged and he originally assigned said he was released to his family and the prosecutor had actually asked for a higher bail. I believe in that, but the judge went ahead and released him. Now he's being held on $750,000 bail. Thea. Other arrests related to protest that came last last week or recently, Dia's also talked about today. 20 year old Jonathan Do.

They're trying to protect the community from the SP Iris, but at the same time there could be like restrictions put on the dock instead of completely shutting it down.

"For the majority of our production we have dealt with cove nineteen impact on sports from a specific perspective from the postponement of the Olympics to NBA player salaries. The narrative has mainly dealt with the professional aspect. But there is another facet and that's a bad our own communities and how the dynamic has jilted our own lives here in the US so we go back to word all start in America in Washington. State specifically Kirkland the original epicenter in the US and how one of our writers beautifully and tragically depicted what he saw from his own backyard. Joining us now is sports illustrated senior writer. Gregg Bishop Greg. Thanks very much for joining us. I appreciate you have me thank you. Greg. Let's let's talk about your hometown. You wrote a beautiful detailed piece by your reaction on how community was impacted. Talk to about what you've seen. And what the last few weeks has been for you and your town yet. A great question because it all feels a little surreal. It's you know you know that this viruses sweeping across the world you know that it's impacted people who live in the United States but also in Italy and China obviously and to have the epicenter of United States at first being Kirkland Washington of all places. It felt like something out of a movie if I'm being honest about it You know what Kirkland is known for is being a suburb near Seattle. It is a relatively small town. There is a small downtown area with a lot of restaurants and we are home to one of the original Costco's so when people see Kirkland brand there that's because one of those is here about a mile from my house and you know the way I I kind of became aware of all this was. I went running one morning before I took my son down to Portland to visit friends and Iran by a normal route and when I went to my buddy's house later in the day all of a sudden news broke and I saw life care. Center of Kirkland. That's the nursing home where everyone has been dying and not only. Was it close to my house? Like within a mile. Roughly but I had jogged by their that very morning. And so I was like holy cow like this. Is Things Real? It's happening all around and we pretty much my family my wife my son and I immediately went into like. How can we deal with this? What kind of precautions do we have to take? What kind of changes to our daily habits to have to take and I think what you're seeing now across the country for the last week or two I feel like we've been in that world for the better part of a month a month and a half you know I. I can't remember the last time I sat down at a restaurant and had a meal with like another human being. It's probably been six weeks. You know I would take my kid out for different things at first I would take him to the parks with playgrounds. Then they close those you know at first I would take too big open spaces. Those are closed now. Were basically down to like. I can take him on these trails by the House. Because nobody's on them and we can stand for it apart and you kind of run him around and get some energy out until at this point now it feels like Kirkland is fairly similar to the rest of the United States if not most of the world that's dealing with this corona virus. But you know it's been a lot longer here and I think we're starting to feel what you will feel pretty soon. I I feel bored. I feel restless. I am the kind of sports writer who spends his life going places and talking to people in reporting I love scene in stories This is basically eliminated my ability to do my job in a normal way and all those things are not really complaints of me setting the stage for what it's like here because I realized that people are sick that people are dying and the people worse and that for me was really driven hunt when my colleague my former newspaper. The New York Times finder passed away from Corona Virus Lives in New Jersey was seventy one. I believe years old. And so you know this thing. Israel these precautions are necessary. Living here is Super Weird and very strange. And all of that kind of exists on the same plane for me now being a resident aside from that you obviously of course mentioned and we all know your workers are sports writer and even though you mentioned it eliminated the majority of your work from a physical geographical standpoint you at the very least as have reached out to teams locally professional amateur highschool and how they're dealing with the pandemic our hasn't been for them just from a local standpoint Within your city and state right and that that to me has been an interesting part of this deal because for them. It's changed over time. You know when I first wrote about just living in Kirkland and being this close to the virus reached out to the mariners to seahawks the sounders the University of Washington and the closest high school to my house. Which is we need a high school where I take my kid to swim class on the weekends and you know at that point in time it was still pretty early so the mariners were hoping to play The sounders were playing games. They had not been interrupted. The University of Washington still planned to hold the spring seasons for baseball softball and track and field. Sports like those and it seemed like at that point The world would pretty much gone normal as long as people were dealing with the virus in a way where they were looking at. You know how they could Keep the common greater in mind That is obviously changed dramatically. You know I was getting ready to cover the tournament when it became clear that it was no longer gonNA take place. I was interested in a few NBA STORIES. When it became clear that that season would be suspended. The teams here. I've had to deal with it The sounders are not playing the mariners. Not I mean that's because really no sports going on The local high school is not doing spring sports. They're not having class in session. And so you know I think what you're seeing with. These teams are the same thing. You're seeing with households and with businesses and with you know media entities like the one we worked for. I mean everybody is grappling with it. How do you maintain a the ability to produce content? How do you in the case the manners? How do you keep fans interested in a team? That has the longest playoff drought in professional sports. how do you keep fans ready so that when you can open your stadium again that they will come back that there won't be fears that this is going to linger? I mean even if they cleared us to go back to a stadium right now. How many people would do that? You know how many people would feel safe. How many people would feel like they wouldn't have to Take precautions and stay home to me. The home viewing experiences already better. You know the great. Tv's closely refrigerator. Bathroom breaks a lot easier. You Know I. I think that they're in a real bind. Here you know and again it's not more important than human life by any stretch the imagination but you know these teams are going to have to coax people back into stadiums when it won't feel very safe for very normal and you know I just think it's going to be interesting to watch the landscape as it moves forward. I mean is is the NBA GonNa play at? All you know doesn't look that way. We'll baseball the first fort back at one point in the season will be after the trade deadline after the. All Star break. I just think teams are in a real bind here and It's unnecessary bind and it's Something we should all be cognizant of and so to me. It's just fascinating. And so that's why I've been writing a lot about the corona virus in its impact on sports because sports in some ways is a microcosm of society and I think we sometimes looked sports in times. Like this to become a welcome distraction and well we have now. Instead is a sports would be one of the things you could do in this time and that to me is super unprecedented and worthy of examination. Yeah I think going to that specific point about how you're using your writing as a way to investigate and report until stories on how the sporting community is dealing with this. One of them was another city. Spokane suffered as much as anybody because it was meant to be the host of the first and second round of the NC Double A. March madness tournament aside from the sporting aspect. This is also an economic problem for venue. That relies on this kind of revenue. How has it been for that? You know arena the organizers and the businesses around that since you wrote it yet to me that story just broke my heart you know. I really wanted to look at how the virus was impacting something in real time and what I found was even way deeper than I ever expected to be. You know spokane is a you know. It's not a small city. It's over two hundred thousand people but it's not the cousin of Seattle. It's the east side of the state. It's very close to Idaho. You know this is a place where events have a major impact on the revenue of the city of a theater downtown at Convention Center in an arena. The arena was gonNA silly tournament for the men's side and the women's side between the three venues to in total. There were ninety something events scheduled for March April. And may every single one of those events has been cancelled they estimate they're gonNA lose Roughly six million in sales tax. At least depending on how long this goes it could be more They'RE GONNA lose three point four million in sales tax just in March alone because they would've had a middle school basketball tournament. The the both the incident play tournaments and volleyball qualifying tournament. I met with this guy that owns David. Pizza out there. It's right across the street from the arena which was totally empty and desolate on a day when it should have been bustling there should have been bands playing crowds chanting. And you know a typical. Ncaa tournament fair it. David's pizza the eighty percent of employees had to be let go for now. Are they down? Eighty percent of revenue our dinner from there when I was out in spokane because I felt so bad for the guy. But you know you're looking at. He had gone out during the day to deliver pizza to first responders because he didn't want to waste the ingredients he didn't want them to spoil. It just felt overall like there was Like it was going to be hard for them to come out of the damage that the cancellation of these events ultimately inflicted and again. That's not to say that anyone saying they should host the events but like there's both these things are true at the same time you know. It's true that the krona virus requires extreme measures to try to control that we need to stop the spread. That you know these staying in in your home and practicing social distancing and doing all these things is not only important but crucial and necessary at the same time for a city like spokane that relies on Outta towners. That is sort of a regional hub for entertainment that needs these events in a way that city like say Atlanta that would have the final four. Doesn't need it as much you know. It's just devastating like that. That's also true to. They are going to be really hurt from this. They're going to need to reschedule all these things. They're going to need people to come back out. They're going to need people to buy tickets. None of these contract people can work. Not Ticket takers not the parking lot attendants not anybody that you know. The relies on events like these for income. And you know I think both things can be true and you know until we get a handle on it. This is just going to be life for a little while Greg finally. It's been all of March as you mentioned he even more since you've been reporting or at least experiencing this pandemic I would love to know just to end it. How you as a sports writer has been able just aside from just talking about sporting stories but also the industry in itself how you have been dealing with it and and relating to it with other people and at the same time as a family man. Are you taking an optimistic on? What's ahead just from your reporting. What are you seeing from both those angles? Yeah you know. I guess I'd start with the family side I think my wife has referred to herself as the world's unluckiest woman Because not only in my home for for three weeks when I would have been gone covering the tournament I will be home for three weeks in June when I would have been covering the Olympics. But my son's home to for the most part so she's now stuck with both of us indefinitely all day long and so That's been interesting. I've been trying to help around the house and tried to take my kid outside. You know you should see our costco..

"Right now when you're over in Kirkland is parking joining us on the company's line is penny sweet the mayor of Kirkland and penny let's talk about the impact corona viruses having on your community what are you seeing as a business owner yourself Macquarie start I just wanna I wanna make a statement with regard to our first responders if you see a carbon firefighter or police Kirkland police officers please go out of your way to thank them for keeping us safe during this challenging time they are doing an extraordinary job it remains such quickly of the evolving event we currently have twenty eight firefighters and three police officers still in quarantine two firefighters have been released after completing their recommended quarantine period all thirty three first responders are linked to responses to incident at life care center of Kirkland all of our first responders that have been tested and had negative results now in terms of what's going on in the business community it is simply a downward spiral my own business we have not seen a customer in the daytime this week in restaurants close to us they're seeing seventy to eighty percent decrease in business all of us are working together to try and figure out how to how to make people understand that we are using fantasizing pretty procedures we are encouraging our customers when they do come in to use the matter is is that we have available to feel free to use restrooms where there's plenty of soap and water and we are sterilizing surfaces eating surfaces all those kinds of things we're trying to do everything we can to make people feel safe ironically in the evening at my particular store I have a regular clientele that comes in and had a glass of wine or something after the after work that businesses into remained and I think a whole lot of that has to do with the business these are groups of people who know each other they have a fair amount of trust that they're going to go to an environment where they will be safe what are you seeing at the restaurants what are they doing when it comes to bottled water or serving watering glasses you say they're making changes they are making changes and I can't tell you how sensitive to this every but he is trying to be it's not I mean they're taking care of themselves personally they're taking care of their employees and they're taking care of their customers we don't we're not used to wiping everything down with alcohol you know every hour or couple three times a day how long can some of these restaurants make it if if the customers are coming in now not very long none of these small businesses operate with much in the way of reserve you know they depend on the daily flow of customers in order to make payroll in order to buy food supplies it's a it's a very critical issue it's difficult to get in an environment where the whole world is telling you to stay home to think beyond staying home at the same time we will lose businesses some of these businesses will fail if this goes on as long as they project that is going to go on so what would you like to say to the community penny I would love to see people take the precautions that are being advised by the CDC and public health keep a safe distance from people you don't know or are uncomfortable around you can go out and shop and you can go out live your life and particularly as that I think what I understood today is that a lot of people are keeping their kids out of school there's no reason why it can't take them out for lunch there's no reason why people can't go out to dinner all we need to do is to use the precautions that have been given to us thank you to live our lives in a way that supports our communities across the board so are you more worried about your business than getting the virus absolutely I'm worried about my business I'm worried about the kids who work for me you know AFI the schools shut down I will lose most of my staff during the daytime

"Who is Dave again. Cheap wind fighter dot com and day. We've got another well. We got actually a holdover Something that I kinda missed from December. I don't know how I missed it. From December knbr just was a mistake in not part because this is the Kirk. Loan Champagne Brute. A nineteen dollars. Ninety nine set champagne which is something. I am very interested in You know one thing I've always said is that my favorite category of value you price. Cheap wine is the sparkling wine bubbly. I mean I really like sparkling wine even like the inexpensive womb Aziz on the barefoot Bear found wines are inexpensive. You're not going to impress anybody with them. It's hard to have a bad time drinking that and I've always loved it when the one thing another thing is Almost missed my point. One of the reason why. It's so good is to champagne anytime anybody wants to spend any bucks on bubbly. They buy champagne. There are a few other people here and there that have worked hard to get their name up there and are used used in and Schramsberg Laura for rioters up a couple of others. There's a Franchisee accordia from Italy that are doing traditional method sparkling wines that are really a good and they cost a little money but for the most part everybody else is in underneath the radar a little bit under twenty dollars ars they're making some great bubbling under twenty dollars so it's a lot of competition because you know people want to spend money. They spend money for champagne and all of a sudden. There's these nineteen nineteen dollars and ninety nine cents Champagnes we did the Aldy one Back in December and that thing rocked it was one of my favorite wines of the year and now doing the Cosco one in an and I'm this. They might do different bailing every year. I'm not so sure I want online looking things up in the same grapes are used but the back label of saying different things. I think to get the cost where they needed to be. They might they might be doing things different every year. But I'm not positive about that but doesn't matter. This is the twenty nineteen version. We're talking about if next year is different so bid. It's always good to try new bubbly. Knock I said this is the Kirkland's champagne brute The White House. That Maeda is Johnson Jackson who are legit they They have a website. If you check out the the cheap wine finder website got a link to it. They have this really cool. Looking modern architecture sure winery. That looks great. Man It's not the traditional Champagne you would think. Oh but it's really cool. I can. Net doesn't come cheap so these guys are pretty successful people. And they know what they're doing Their own wines under their own label. They only use Pinot noir and Chardonnay mostly Chardonnay. I believe and this has Pinot Manet and along with a new Iron Pinot Chardonnay Pinot Manet. If you don't know as a red grape Manet Manet is the French term for what is left over in the wheat milling process. Because the leaves have this white dots that somewhere somewhere way back one decided to look like flower You know it got a weird. I mean Most great names come from a long time ago and farmers made up the name and they're Kinda simple and they're not always all that accurate are group's aren't black so I don't know and you know penal a black is white and actually green and you know what else is there. A few degree three degrees. You know that's gray and they're not really great so that's the point. I'm drinking champagne. I'm GONNA have a little sip right now because this is actually a really really good well-made bubbly I don't know if they have these things available. I actually bought us today. That's why I hadn't been to COSCO A a few weeks and I was there. Oh Shit Two thousand nine hundred ninety nine for above. How do I pass that up? Because you can't pass that up you have to drink that stuff and and And if they only have like certain times a year you might think about heading over there in buying a couple because you get two of these things for the price of a champagne we also have you WanNa buy a few and then have them look for the course of the year rather than wait till next December November. It might be a good idea but that's up to you. I'm GONNA and have a SIP right now because I'm drinking champagne. And the whole point of having champion your glasses to drink it this one though champagnes if you give yourself a second you taste wine. We just drink and talk with friends. I don't really taste anything I mean. It's hard to know but when you give yourself maybe forty five seconds where you just alone with your thoughts and what's going on flavors keep on going going. Keep on evolving. This is one of those wines. Where you when you you write down your tasting notes new in okay? That's what it is the second time I was like. Oh there's other things they're it just changed and that's really a mark of a good wine for one thing it's got good structure because it's got enough length that the flavors can continue to go to mm-hmm to continue to develop and unfold and like the very best wines. Keep on going and going and go in. And just don't quit and then doesn't mean they're really like good wines. That are kind of simple but are flavorful may tastes great. And you don't really want anything else but champagnes one of the ones you want to have this one. Does He. Bow and the acidity is really good. I mean the the city is like one of the things that give the wind structure. Let the flavors unfold and it also is is one of those ones where it's right on the cusp of getting you to drink another step. You know there's some winds up you're always going through the glass and you and you're not even thinking talking about here just doing it. The acidity said he keeps on a beguiling. You guessed the term is a good term. You gotta use cool words when you're talking about wine and so it keeps you drinking and its cannon really a ton of flavors of delicious champagne. Now I did the all before and I prefer my champagnes to be Pinot. Noir based release dominant and that one was and so. I really really like that when I drank the all dependent wire but my I take my first sip I said wow I mean okay. That's all I. I don't even know anything more if I always go with your first with your thoughts on a subject addict especially wine and this one. I didn't go. Wow but after the wind kept developing it was like. Oh I've got something here in my glass that it is kind of good. I know we're talking about nineteen dollars. Ninety nine cents Champagnes. Here's another thing about the champagne region has it's been it's been a one of the premier products for a long long time and one of the reasons they is they have really stringent quality up controls From how you grow the grapes the Vineyard crush the grapes how you produce the wine how long you're you're doing a second fermentation how you're doing this and how you're doing that. They don't want anybody bringing their product down so when you have these nineteen nineteen dollars and ninety nine cent champagnes that are way under market price their neck under market price because they cut corners. There's in the winemaking. They might be less profit they might be doing in Casco only charges fifteen percents of Prophet or whatever that is on their the whole thing. 'cause you're paid sixty bucks up front So they're they're whatever corners are cut our elsewhere and plus there's no marketing Gasco just doesn't you know they put a label on it and that's all you're gonNA get so there are costs cut out of it so it's not the wine itself isn't wrong or isn't is. There's not something wrong with it for this price range. 'cause most entry level champagnes campaigns. Do the exact same thing. This wine is in. Oh The leading a champagne they make a million bottles of a year and they use over one hundred heard vineyards to to get the grapes for the A million bottles in how exclusive that costs forty bucks and you drink it happily actually tastes pretty good. They know how to make their winds. So these nineteen dollars ninety cents Champagnes are actually really representative and in this case really very good and all these was surprising. Goodness a really well made she pain and I'm really happy it's delicious I'll say is delicious. It just keeps bobbing. It tastes good. There's has The and lease flavors were nutty and cashew. It's got good Langa. The city's really balance a flavors. Razer all melded together solid champagne and it's under twenty bucks you know. Champagne is now daily drink. I mean that's why you should think about buying a few because you can you know Tuesday you know. Hey let's go do something. Hey I got a promotion. But the race hasn't kicked in yet. Let's get the twenty dollars champagne you know Rather than go for the one hundred dollars campaign so this is really good one. I missed it for New Year's Eve but I had bubbles and stuff for that too and I like this soon. We're GONNA have more. What else I think the next one is going to maybe a Bordeaux rants about that next time and so? We're doing France for a while and but today hey a champagne and it was good and I'm happy audio so we're going to have a whole bunch more winds coming up in the future and hang in there and hang out with us and I'll talk to you later bye.
