We're also brought to you by The Ringer Podcast Network where I put up a new rewatchables on Monday night. We did the big chill. It was very, very exciting. I have Kyle Brandt coming on Monday's podcast. I'm just gonna tell you the movie now because it is gonna be the best moment of your weekend if you spent two hours watching this classic. We're doing Toy Soldiers. It really brings everything possible to the table. So if you wanna watch it ahead of time, there it is. That podcast is going up Monday night. If you wanna hear stuff about the debate, we have Tara Paul and Mary's podcast, Somebody's Gotta Win. That reacted to it as well as the press box with Brian Curtis and David Shoemaker. So there you go. Our debate coverage has been on point. Also, higher learning. Van and Rachel had Larry Elder on this weekend. It made a lot of noise, man. That podcast is great. I hope you check that out as well. Hope you're checking out theringer .com. And on this podcast, gonna talk about the dame trade at the top. We're gonna bring in Ben Thompson from the Techery newsletter, which he's been on this podcast I think four weeks ago. And he's a huge Bucks fan. He's gonna give the Bucks fan side of things. We're gonna do million dollar picks. And then old friend Seth Meyers talking about a whole bunch of stuff. So really good podcast. It's all next. First, our friends from Pro Jam. What's up? All right, I'm taping this on Thursday afternoon. Normally when there's a big MBA trade, I always do the emergency trade reaction right after the podcast. But we just put up a podcast on Tuesday. So I decided to play it a little differently this time. I wanted a little distance, I wanted to listen to stuff, read stuff, and try to form some big picture opinions coming out of this. So I have four smaller ones, then one big one. First one, I thought Portland did an incredible job with this trade. I really liked this trade, especially everyone was trying to bully them in June and July about, oh, you got to take Miami's offer. You just got to. It's where he wants to go. It's the only offer you're going to get. And guess what? They waited. They played it perfectly. They stared Miami down, and they got a much better deal. First of all, they get the Drew Holiday piece that they can flip into a bunch out of their stuff, which we'll talk about in one second. I love the DeAndre Ayton gamble. As you know, on this podcast, I am a big DeAndre Ayton guy. Not in the sense of I'm the biggest fan of his in the world, but I'm a fan of the asset. I just think I love the valued assets, no matter what it is. Whatever market we're talking about, DeAndre Ayton, 18 and 10 for his career, 60 % field goals percentage, 25 years old. He's played in 45 playoff games. He played four rounds in the 2021 finals. Last year, he got his ass kicked by Jokic. Oh, sorry. Like, that never happens. And Phoenix just sold on him, which I can't wait to talk about. But just from a Portland standpoint, they not only get Ayton in whatever they get for holiday, they get the 29 first, they get the two swaps, and they dump Nurkic. Nurkic hasn't had a healthy start to finish all the way through the playoffs here since 2018, which I'm positive was a long time ago. He's basically 12 and 8. He's, you know, a 50 % shooter. I made a list of the top 30 centers. I encourage you to do this at home, because what's more fun than making lists of NBA centers? I can't imagine anything. I made a list of who I thought were the best assets of the center position for talent, contract, everything. He was 29th on my list. The only person I had ahead of him who's technically a starter, unless you start talking about the Detroit or Charlotte guys, was Zubats on the Clippers. I thought he was the 29th best center asset in the league. And Phoenix, you know, just quickly to go to them, they're trying to win this year. They got worse. They turned Ayton's money into Nurkic and Grayson Allen and Nasir Little. Grayson Allen, we already know with him, he can't play in playoff series. We saw him 22. We saw it last year. I heard and read in some places like that, I got two rotation players. Did they? Is Nurkic a playoff rotation player? Is Grayson Allen a playoff rotation player? Because I'm positive he's not. So for the same money that they were spending on Ayton, they got three guys that I don't think are going to help them. In 25, the money comes down a little bit to 23 million just for Nurkic and Little, which is 7 million less than Ayton. And then in 26, that money goes up to 25 .5. But I don't understand what Phoenix was doing. Why not wait to see if Ayton clicks with Vogel? Vogel has such a good history with centers. He rejuvenated Dwight Howard on the 2020 Lakers. He basically created Roy Hibbert's career in 2013 with the defense verticality thing. I thought he was going to do a good job with Ayton. I'm stunned that they gave up on him. I'm almost waiting for one of those, now they tell us stories when, you know, that's where Brian Curtis calls them, where like a week after something happens, there's this kind of notebook dump where it's like, here's seven terrible DeAndre Ayton stories. So maybe that'll happen. But for Phoenix just to be like, cool, we locked this down, man. We got Nurkic. You're trying to win the title. You have KD and Booker and Beal. And like, what are you guys doing? Anyway, from Portland's standpoint, I love the Ayton thing. I love that they didn't get bullied. And I know they're going to turn Drew Holliday into something. So this to me was at least an A minus for them, for where they were two months ago, where Dave's like, I want to go to Miami. That's it. And if you don't trade me there, that's kind of fucked up. And they made this work as it got reported that, uh, I think in the athletic, that he expanded his list to Brooklyn and to Milwaukee in the last two weeks. And that's what Portland was waiting on. You know, they were banking on the fact that he's a competitive dude. He's one of the best 75 pairs ever. He wanted a situation settled. So, you know, you wait, you wait, you wait, they expand the list and then you go. Uh, there's a Drew Holliday piece to this. That's awesome. He becomes a contender prize. I wouldn't call this a Drew Holliday sweepstakes. I reserved sweepstakes for the superstars, but it's a mini sweepstakes. This is somebody that could have a huge impact on the playoff race. You know, not only the usual suspects, everybody's talking about Boston, ironically, Miami is a really good fit for him. And in some ways, um, I'm a little more scared of them with Miami than Dame in some ways, especially at a much cheaper contract with giving up less and keeping some of their assets. Philly, if they could pull it off, they have to be in there in Golden State, Minnesota. I think I have to mention Sacramento, I think is a team that if they could figure out how to get Drew without giving up their core, which is basically Keegan Murray and Sabonis and Fox, like that's, you know, could Davion Mitchell be in that trade with some, with a salary and some picks, who knows. The team that I love for Drew Holliday is OKC. I have OKC, you know, I started doing my MBA research for the over -under spot and I haven't landed on a number for them yet, but to me, they feel like a high forties team with Chet and with the growth of their young guys. And if you just like, let's say they traded Lou Dort and a bunch of their picks, maybe two firsts and two of their lesser picks or three firsts and a second, whatever it is. And they just say, fuck it. And they get Drew and you put him with Giddy and SGA and Jalen fucking awesome Williams and Chet Holmgren and all these other dudes they have, that might be a top three team in the West. I mean, that, that's starting to give me some early 2010s OKC vibes. So where he goes is going to be important. I just feel like there was so much Drew Holliday slander the last couple of days. You know, he's one of my favorite players. Even Haralabob, who was the chairman of the board of the Drew Holliday fan club for years and would have the benefit dinners there and, you know, just did a lot of yeoman's work on that front. And even he was like, yeah, yeah, Dame's better than Drew. That trade makes sense for Milwaukee. I was hurt, Haralabob. I was 100 % hurt by that. But you know, Drew got his ass kicked by Jimmy Butler in the playoffs last year. I get it. It happens. Jimmy was unbelievable. I feel like he would have kicked anybody's ass. By the way, why is Drew Holliday guarding Jimmy Butler? That speaks more to some of the issues with Milwaukee. He was never supposed to be a point guard and a creator. I think he was always better as an off -the -ball guy. We saw that with Rondo and New Orleans and just in general. I want to see him with a point guard. I want to see him just being unleashed, not having the ball a lot, just worrying about hitting threes, being an occasional, you know, make -shit -happen guy and being like the third or fourth best guy on a team without having the offensive responsibility to have. All their half court issues got blamed on him for the last couple of years. And I get it. They weren't like an awesome half -court team, even the other one in the finals, but I really value that dude. I had him, even I did the trade value list in August and I had him 37th and I had Dame 23rd. I think he's one of the best 30 players in the league still. He's 33 years old, which, you know, I'm going to talk in a second about when guards hit their mid -30s, but just in general, I think he's a real asset. If he goes to a team like the Celtics and they can keep Derek White and Tatum and Brown in the center, it's like, look out, man. So little mini sweepstakes, rarely do we get the trade, but then we still get another asset to talk about. Thank you for everyone involved in the trade. And then the fourth small point is just that, you know, not rocket science, Milwaukee bought some Giannis time here. They have one of the best 20 players of all time. They were staring down the barrel of a situation that was not good. I was talking about it on this podcast in late June and early July. I thought he was going to put them on the clock. I thought Mark Lasry selling his stake was a really bad sign for all of this because that dude is smart. As I laid out in June, that guy is really smart. And if he's feeling like, you know what, it's time for me to sell my buck stock, that makes me nervous. And then all the stuff that Giannis said and did, which I thought he did really fairly and really smartly. And I think that dude's about titles and that's it. And I know we say that about players, but I think in his case, I don't think he cares about, you know, what's my legacy, how do I compare against Dirk DeWhisky, any of that stuff. I just think he wants more rings. I mean, think about the guys who have won two rings out of the best 35 guys on my list of my pyramid. Those are all guys in my top 35 that won multiple wings. You go to the one -ring side, Jerry West, Oscar, Moses, Dirk, Jokic, Giannis, Pettit, Garnett, Kawhi, Rick Barry. That's the list he's on now. I certainly don't think he's looking at that list going, I got to get away from these guys, but it's a slightly different list. I think when you win multiple rings in multiple situations, it elevates you in a certain way. I think he fundamentally understands that at least a little bit. I want to be the best player since LeBron James. I think that's a thing that he wants. How am I going to do that? I need more rings. I need more finals trips. He knew from last year and maybe even the Boston series that they just weren't good enough. Whether this trade is going to be the thing that propels them, we'll find out, but he's been in the league 10 years, two MVPs, five first teams, two second teams, and now we have this little two -year window. Kawhi and the Raptors was a one -year window. This is a two -year window, I feel like. With Giannis, he's got two years left in his deals. So does Lopez. Middleton has two in a player option. Dame's got two, and then this crazy $120 million player option extension thingy that he has that just keeps going and going. It's probably two years. There's a world where this could go terribly this season, at least for what the expectations are, and then maybe it becomes Kawhi, Raptors. Maybe Giannis is like, you know what? That didn't work. Trade me. And the Bucks, who have no picks left and no future, they look at it next summer, and they go, all right. We tried it. Giannis, what can we get for you? Dame, what can we get? And they just do a reboot, rehaul. Remember, they won in 2021, which just takes so much pressure out of this. It's so much different than the Clippers situation, where they went all in on Kawhi and Paul George. They give up all those picks and SGA, and they've gotten nothing out of it. They haven't even made the finals. So it's got to happen. I think they at least probably have to make the finals. If they get bounced in round two, do I think Giannis is going to stay because they made this Dame -Mower trade? Probably not. So that leads to the big question, is how good of a trade was this? So there's a big picture angle on Dame, and it's going to sound negative, but I really don't want it to sound negative because I think Dame, I voted for him for NBA Top 75. I think he's been one of the best guards in the last 15 years. I think there's a ton of great things you can say, and there's a chance that he goes to Milwaukee, and this thing is fucking awesome. I know any Celtic fan I've talked to, including Isaiah, who's helping produce this podcast today, the Giannis -Dame pick and roll is just terrifying. Other than Jokic and Murray, it's going to be the single most unstoppable offensive play in the league. It is. We are conceding that point. The spot Dame is in right now, big picture -wise, it's weird. He's a superstar, but he's not, and we've seen guys like this before. I judge superstars by, do you have the resume statistically, and is your team succeeding consistently at a certain level? You can't totally say that about Dame. He's never been on a 55 -win team. He's missed the playoffs completely four times in 11 years. He said three first -round exits. He made the Final Four once in 2019, which was really lucky because Golden State and Houston were the two best teams, and then they got smoked. He's never been on a true contender ever. Instinctively, you go, well, that's not his fault. Who's he played with? Well, he played with LaMarcus Aldridge and CJ McCollum and a couple other guys, but not really anybody. The reason I'm putting this up is there's a success element that he has not had yet that for somebody with his resume is actually kind of unusual. I went and I looked up how many guards in the history of the league averaged 22 points a game for their career and played at least 700 games. I thought the list would be like 20. I didn't know. I didn't know what I was walking into. Only I think 75 guys have averaged 22 a game. So I went and I looked up the list, and it was 10 guys, 700 games, 22 a game for their career. There were some guys who came close like David Thompson, who I think is one of the best guards I've seen in the last 45 years, but had a short career and had some drug issues. He didn't make it. He didn't play enough games. Pete Maravich, 24 .2 points a game, but he didn't play enough games. Kyrie hasn't played enough games yet. Bradley Beale is five games away. I'm actually kind of glad the cutoff's at 700 so we don't have to talk about him. And then Mitchell and Trey Young aren't there yet. There's only 10 guys that made it, and the 10 guys are all fucking awesome. And again, I mentioned this in the context of Dame, who we think he is versus the success he's had. So the 10 guys, Michael Jordan, 30 .1, Jerry West, 27 .1, Allen Averson, 26 .7, George Gervin, 26 .2, Oscar Robertson, 25 .7, Kobe, 25 .0, Harden, 24 .7, Curry, 24 .6, Wade, 22, barely made it, and Russ, 22 .4, and then Dame is at 25 again. All right, what does he not have that those other guys have? Well, MJ, don't need to talk about him. Don't need to talk about Jerry West, who's the freaking logo. Allen Averson, pretty good comparison, right? Big stats, really memorable player, but not a ton of success. Here's the difference. Averson made the finals once. He won an MVP. Dame has done neither of those things. George Gervin was the best scoring guard of the 70s. He made two final fours. He had some bad luck. He really, in 79, really should have came close. And some of it's on him, right? He could have come through. Bobby Dandridge is the one that ended up coming through for the Bullets. They lose. But two final fours, he had four top five MVP finishes, five first teams, four second teams. He was just unassailably the best guard in the league until MJ. Oscar Robertson, don't need to go through him, but he won a ring and an MVP. Kobe, five rings and an MVP. Eleven first teams for Kobe, by the way. James Harden, three final fours, an MVP, six top five MVP finishes, six first team MBAs. And even though Harden has never made the finals as the best guy, he made it with OKC as the sixth man, you could build a contender around Harden. We saw it. We haven't really seen it with Dame. I think that's a fair thing to bring up. Curry, four rings, two MVPs, you know, the Curry thing. Dwayne Wade, three rings, two top five MVPs, two first teams, three second teams. He's more in the Dame waters a little bit, but he had the 2006 finals and he was the second best guy with LeBron on those heat teams. And then Westbrook, who you would say, well, Dame had a better career than Westbrook. Did he? Westbrook made the finals in 2012. He was second best guy on that team. Almost made the finals in 2016. He won an MVP. He had two first teams and five second teams. It's at least like a real argument. And I think when you look at Dame, he only had that one 2019 round three, got bounced. He's only had one top five MVP finish. He's only had one first team MBA and four second team MBAs. Really, really good top 75 career. But the piece that's missing is, have you been on a really good team? Have you made a real run at it? Which is why, you know, I think this Milwaukee trade is so much fun. This is his real chance. I get nervous about a couple things with this trade. One is that, you know, if you look at the 33 and older guards who average 22 points a game in a season. Jordan did it twice. Curry did it twice. Still going. Kobe did it three times. Jerry West twice. Sam Jones once. Hal Greer once. That's the entire list. Now the NBA is different. We have more three -pointers now. It's easier to score. Scoring is the easiest it's ever been. Guys can play at a longer age. So I'm not ruling out Dane being good for the next three years. But just pointing out, history is saying, be a little nervous. In general with guards, like Chris Paul, we saw from age 35 to 36 to 37, like it just dropped. But that's two years older than Dane. Maybe it's fine. I just worry about guards. We have not a lot of instances with guards in their mid -30s of them either peaking as players or being able to sustain whatever success they had during their prime. It always starts to go down with really no exceptions, except for Steph Curry. He's the only non -exception. So if your case is Dane's as good as Steph Curry, or Dane can be as potent as Steph Curry on a winning team, like, you know, Steph Curry is better than Dane, but I'm not going to argue that he couldn't do a lot of the stuff that Curry did in Golden State. The bigger issue for me, the age I'm definitely worried about. Dane has not been healthy the last couple of years, and we have not seen him play nine straight months at playoff basketball with a big bullseye on his back. Everybody coming after you, you're the best team. We haven't seen him do that ever, much less than the last couple of seasons. So can he stay up? Can he stay healthy? That's one thing. The defense with Dane just got kind of swept under the rug the last couple days, and I don't really understand it because there's five categories of defensive player I feel like. There's excellent, there's good, there's average, there's not so good, and then there's bad. And I think Dane's a bad defender. I think the stats back it up. Like, his defensive rating last year was 245 out of the guards. He's the 245th guard for defensive rating. You know, 117 .4 individual defensive rating is 483 overall. Portland's team's always defensively, it was the Achilles heel for them. Partly because of Dane, because he couldn't guard anybody. He's too small. And, you know, think about what we saw from the playoffs the last couple years. I think about the 2020 bubble Celtics playoffs, not infrequently, because I think that team had a chance to potentially win a title. What happened? Everyone hunted Kemba Walker. It was hunting season. It's like, where is he? Got to get a switch. Got to get Kemba Walker guarding somebody who's bigger, or got to beat him off the dribble, and it just became a hunt session with him. And basically, he got played out of the league. He's not in the league anymore. You know, we had this with Isaiah Thomas, too, in the mid -2010s. I think it's been an issue with Kyrie Irving. The Celtics certainly went at him in the playoff series with Brooklyn a couple years ago. Curry, you saw, who I think is a better defender than people give him credit for, but the And he's a much better defender than Dame is. Jordan Poole is somebody that got hunted in playoff series recently. Chris Paul, obviously, is a big one. Jalen Brunson, remember what the Heat did to him? Mitchell, when he was on Utah, this was a huge issue. And then Trae Young, obviously. My fear with Dame is he's a DH, and I think in Portland, part of the reasons he was able to put up the stats he did was because he wasn't playing defense, right? It was just, how many points can I score? My team isn't very good, and I'm just going to do my thing. He's an incredible offensive player. But how much of a trade -off is the defense, right? Well, you think, all right, well, Milwaukee, they're really good defensively. They'll be able to protect him. Here's the team. Giannis, Dame, Lopez, Portis, Middleton, Conaton, Beauchamp, Crowder. Who's guarding Trae Young on this team? Who's guarding Jason Tatum? Here's a partial list of guys that I don't think this team will be able to guard this season. Devin Booker, Tatum, Butler, Trae Young, Kyrie, Curry. Who's going to be chasing Curry around the screens? Dame lowered? Good luck. SGA, Luca, Mitchell, Murray, Edwards, Brunson, Ja, Garland, Fox, Halburn. Are they going to be able to cover Derek White? I don't know. The way this team is constructed, they are not going to have the ability to guard other guards at all, which means they're just going to have to be in a shooting match with them, right? It's going to be not much different than what's going to happen with Phoenix, where they're just literally going to have to outscore the other team. I've just watched too much playoff basketball over the last couple years, where it's like, if you have that weak link on defense, and you're playing a team that's smart enough, they're going to go after that weak link. Like, think about them against the Lakers, right? The Lakers figure their crunch time. Let's say they make the finals. It's Milwaukee and the Lakers, and Lakers crunch time. They're going to have LeBron and Davis and Austin Reeves and, I don't know, a shooter and a point guard, whatever. All they're going to be doing is trying to find where Dame is on the court and going after him. What about when they play Boston? Boston puts out White and Brogdon and Tatum and Brown and a center, and all they're going to be doing is trying to make sure Dame is covering somebody who has the ball who's now torturing him. I think it's a real problem for them. And what's funny is they gave up Drew's defense and, you know, they, what they gave up on defense, which is significant, and they gained an offense, it might end up just being a wash and they might just be a different version of the same team where they still have a huge flaw. It's just on the other end of the court. I'm just shocked that nobody brought up the defense. I agree he's an amazing offensive player and what's cool about this trade and what I'm excited about as a basketball fan is, can he go up a level? Right? A lot of these stats he put up, especially the last couple years. They didn't mean anything. They were, he was on bad teams. Like, who cares? Ultimately, Bradley Beal scored 30 points a game on the Wizards. Who cares? I think most really good offensive players, if they're on a bad team, can get between 25 and 30 a night. Can you do it nine months in a row? Can you do it when you're getting hunted on defense all over the place? How much can Milwaukee protect him? And what does he have in the tank at age 33 with 900 plus games on the O 'Dominor already? I'm still afraid of the Bucks, but people have, like, FanDuel had them as best odds in basketball and I think most people feel like they're the favorite now. I don't feel like there's a favorite. I think you can go through every team. Boston, I could, I'm scared of Porzingis. What's going to happen with Jalen Brown out there? He has contracts. Can Peyton Pritchard, all these different things. Philly, God only knows. Miami, they're unquestionably worse. Yeah, Milwaukee is going to be really good, but depending where Holiday lands and how this all plays out, I just think it's still wide open. And the other piece, so if you're just talking Boston, Miami, Tatum kills Milwaukee. I have no idea why. Boston is kind of built to at least stay with Dame and, you know, Derek White is about as good of a person you're going to have to try to keep Dame in check, at least. And Boston's done a really good job of guarding Giannis over the years. They don't have Grant Williams this year, but I just don't think, I think there's as many ways this goes wrong as it goes right, I guess would be my final thought on this because for what they gave up, especially with that 29 unprotected and the two swaps and, you know, they are all in on this team. And you know my theory, when you go all in on a team, you better think you can win. Not positive, but it's an awesome trade. It really is. It makes the league so much more fun. Dame and Giannis together. I'm going to enjoy watching Portland. I still have my eating stock. Watching Phoenix fans slowly realize that Derkiszna isn't the answer is going to be fun and then we'll see where Drew Holliday goes. So really fun trade. We're going to talk about it a little bit more with Die Hard Bucks fan, Ben Thompson in one second. Let's take a break.

Meet Fannie Lou Hamer: Sharecropper Turned Activist
"There's another Fanny that I want to introduce you to. Her name is Miss Fanny Lou Hamer. I don't know about you, but I've been to the Mississippi Delta once. Mea culpa for the cliche, but I did meet some of the kindest strangers I've ever met there. If you're molded from the city suburbs like I am, the Delta will shock your sensibilities. 200 miles long, 87 miles across at its widest point and encompassing approximately 4 ,415 ,000 as you stand you are no more special than an average stock of corn. The flatland, strong enough to tango with tornadoes, will effortlessly swallow you up if you dare it to. Yet the bodies of African -American children, men, and women were forced to stretch across the Delta to domesticate the land for the profit and riches of the patriarchy. First through human exploitation of slavery and then through the economically exploitative system of sharecropping. Now sharecropping has and is practiced globally in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. In the United States after the Civil War sharecropping seceded slavery as a system of agricultural labor where landlords would contract with tenant farmers to lease a portion of land in exchange for a value of the crops. Under this system the tenant farmer would work the land and receive a share of the value of the crop less charges for seed, tools, tenancy, and food. The system was rife with price manipulations which indebted many sharecropper tenants from harvest to harvest. These landlords were largely the same individuals who just months and years before were the slave holders of the now tenants who were just months and years before slaves. After plantation owners were forced to sever their stronghold of human exploitation through the Civil War. It's not a difficult logic leap to understand that the new system with the same old players in the same old place wasn't going to produce a different outcome other than human exploitation. The sharecroppers were living under poor working conditions that kept them in a poverty trap. It was a rigged system but what other choice existed in the South following the Civil War? To live, to eat. Where was a Black person supposed to go? How were they supposed to survive? As compelling testimony to how life can force the hand of change in the inertia of oppression. A once child laborer on a sharecropping plantation in the Delta at the tender age of 45 became a catalyst to end the sharecropping industry's 62 -year reign. Her name was Fannie Lou Hamer. She was a force for social change. All she wanted was freedom. All she wanted was to be a first -class citizen amongst equal citizenry. The best place to begin to know Ms. Fannie might be at the crescendo of her life following an 18 -year period of sharecropping on a cotton plantation near Ruleville, Mississippi. In this season of her life she built a serious career as a voting rights, women's rights, civil rights activist, and community organizer during the violent era of Jim Crow which were racial segregation laws and formal and informal policies. Everyday life for Blacks in Mississippi was a sentence and perpetuity of embodied hardship and then the most extraordinary thing happened. The intention of disruption from community organizers introduced Ms. Fannie to the promise of change through democratic participation of voting. She said, they talked about how it was our right as human beings to register and vote. I never knew we could vote before. Nobody ever told us. We hadn't heard anything about registering to vote because when you see this flat land in here when the people would get out of the fields if they had a radio they'd be too tired to play it so we didn't know what was going on in the rest of the state even much less in other places.

On S .I. media with Jimmy trainer. All right, training me now. S .I. media podcast regular. This periodic visit from the New York Post. And the March and Iran podcast is Andrew Marchand. Andrew, how are you? I'm good. How you doing, Jimmy? I'm good. I just realized I didn't put my phone on do not disturb. So I'm going to do that as we speak. And I'm going to let you know that I had a reader last week for my mailbag column on S .I. com, send it an email and said, when is Marchand's next appearance? So here we go. You made someone happy. Thank you that person. You made someone happy by coming on today. Let's start with this. A lot of media news to get to. Have you heard anything from ESPN or do you have any intel about how they feel about the last two weeks? How the staggered Monday Night Football doubleheader has gone? Because I've gotten a lot of emails and tweets about it. I'm sure you have as well. Yeah, I haven't talked to anybody specifically about how they feel about it. I mean, it is an NFL decision. ESPN is not in control of how those games are scheduled. Maybe they have some say, but it's the NFL decision. Yeah, I don't like it. Actually, in our podcast with John, it was my who's down this week. And the reason I just feel like I kind of said this on our part, it's too it's like having two quarterbacks and you have none. Right. And now if you have Joe Montana and Steve Young, there are two awesome games. Maybe that'd be better. But I just find my attention split and I don't know. And even at like halftime, I wouldn't recommend you go to the other game. Like I get what they're trying to do there, but it's not the NCAA tournament. And usually it's in like the second quarter, third quarter. So I personally don't think it really works that well. Now, I think they want to avoid I'm not positive, but I think they want to avoid that 10 30 late window. We used to get the Monday night and you get the, you know, crazy crew, either Chris Berman or Golick and Greenberg, you know, some of those crews back in the day. They probably don't want that late night game where, you know, you're losing that East Coast audience if it gets too late. But I don't know. I don't think this necessarily works. See, I like it. And what are the tweet? What are the tweeters say? Most people seem to not like it. Yeah. And why do you like it? The more the merrier. Give me as much football as possible. If I can watch eight games at one o 'clock on Sunday and four or five games at four o 'clock on Sunday, I can handle two games on Monday night. So, you know, I have two TVs. I put one game on each TV and two is better than one for me. That's just how I feel. Yeah, I've been a little running around these last couple of Mondays when this happened. So I may be a little bit, you know, my opinion skewed a little bit by that. It hasn't just been like I'm just chilling and watching, been running around a little bit. So perhaps that's, you know, maybe I could be swayed. I will say, you know, I don't know. This is a whole separate discussion. I would love to know your take on this, but I always feel like it's a little tough sometimes to criticize people in this podcast when I also have to book this podcast. So I try to be careful. Yeah, I notice you're very soft. That's what you're trying to say. Sometimes. So I'm sure this guy will never come on again, but they gotta do better than Chris Fowler on the secondary game. Just not, it's just not working. Chris is not a great play -by -player. Right. He was a great host, studio host. Can I say one thing? Yeah. He's on tremendous tennis. Like I watch the U .S. Open every single day. I think he's great on tennis. It's football where it's just something feels off. Well, tennis is also slower. And like you look at people who do really well at the slower sports. Like, you know, Jim Nantz is better than Chris Fowler, but Nantz is really his best thing is golf. And I think he's an OK NFL play -by -player. And at the end of his college basketball run, he was definitely, I don't know, OK is probably, you know, he was OK there as well. And I think if you look at Fowler and his history, now he's been doing play -by -play for a while now. And he has gotten better. Like when he first started on the number one crew, I mean, if I were covering it then, that would not, I probably would not have been that kind. Because he has gotten better, but it's not really good enough. And he's the rare case, I think with Herb Street, that Herb Street makes him better. Usually it's the play -by -player who makes the analyst better. And yeah, I think you're right. And I also think, you know, in fairness to Fowler, you know, ESPN put that crew together. They replaced Levy there and they had a year or two under their belt together as a team. And, you know, not the full team, but him and Riddick, Levy and Riddick, and then Jadolowski. And I think they kind of don't, they underestimate chemistry. It takes time to build it up. And so I think that hurts. And he just, he's a college guy too. It's hard just to come into the NFL. I know he, you know, he's talked how hard his schedule is with the U .S. Open. And then, you know, doing a game a couple days later. And then doing a college. And so, you know, that's hard. And so, yeah, he's not a tremendous play -by -player. To me, this is just me, it felt like when ESPN gave him that gig, it was more about ESPN trying to impress the NFL. Like, look, we have our number one college game. Like you had said earlier, the secondary Monday night game for years was, you know, Golic and Greenberg and Chris Berman with a cast of character. Rich Ryan did it one year. I think this is ESPN trying to say to the NFL, because now they have a Super Bowl and they have this big contract. And, you know, they brought in Buck and Aikman. Like, we're serious, we're going to take our, regardless of what you think about Fowler, he's their lead college guy. So, I feel like they're like, oh, look at us, we're putting the lead when, you know, that. Yeah, I think they screwed up and I think they know they screwed up. I think that they ended up shifting who was in charge of the NFL. It was Stephanie Drewley. And they moved her off the NFL after, you know, I think that didn't help her cause in terms of staying on the NFL. I think they were satisfied with Levy. He was a good guy, which they value. After they brought in Joe Buck, he was very gracious. You know, Levy's a very good hockey guy, especially studio host. I thought he could have, you know, could have been the pregame show on Monday Night Football. He's in, again, not their, in my opinion, they had other people who are better play -by -players for football, but it was good. Like, so, yeah, I don't think it was to impress the NFL. They got Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. They got the Mannings. I mean, they spend, they're spending 50, 60 million dollars a year on their booths. Like, I don't think the second team booth is gonna, you know. If anything, I think it was, there was a thought before Buck and Aikman that Fallon and Herb Street might get the NFL. Might get Monday Night Football. Might get the potential Super Bowl. And then this is kind of a carrot since they didn't get it. But I'd argue, and I even talked to Chris Fowler about this. So, I don't know if this is the case. I just don't know if, I mean, Chris Fowler does the national championship. He does the biggest college game every week for Disney. I can't, like, I get it. Maybe he wanted to do NFL. But is this really gonna satisfy him because you're doing a second game, which generally aren't that great? I don't, I don't see that long -term, personally. And I think also, strategically, if I'm ESPN, I'm putting a young play -by -player. Now, Joe Buck, we both think it's great. Like, he and Ian Eagle are the best two play -by -players going right now. And, um, but, Joe Buck's contract's up in a couple of years. If I'm ESPN, and I, you know, I think they'll probably re -sign Joe Buck, and they should. That said, he makes a lot of money. And, you know, I would be saying, who can I develop? What young guy can I develop? So when I go into that negotiation, I really have somebody who's on the rise. And I can say, hey, look, you don't want this, you know, the 15 million a year? Then we'll go here, you know? But if you start demanding, I'm not saying this is going to happen, but, demanding even more and more money, I'd want an option. I don't think they've created an option. They've actually put somebody in that spot who they've already said they'd rather spend 15 million dollars on Joe Buck than have Chris Fowler as the lead play -by -player. So, I just think negotiation -wise, and strategically, in terms of saving money, it wasn't a great decision. Yeah. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth, either. They had Fowler, Greasy, and Riddick. Excuse me, excuse me. Levy, Riddick, Greasy. Now it's Fowler or Lofsky, Riddick. To me, that, and, Fowler's used to a two -person booth with Herb Street. They have Buck and Aikman, which is a two -person booth. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth. It's just, for football, it just, I don't get it, but, that's just my - It complicates, it over -complicates it. Yeah. And like you said, chemistry. I think it's much harder to develop a chemistry with three. I mean, you know, the local Mets situation is different with Gary Cohn, Ron Darl - Is it in baseball, is it football? What three men, can you name - I mean, I guess back in the old Monday Night Football days, there were three men booths that had - Yeah, Collinsworth and Aikman with Buck that one year. Yeah, one year it lasted, you know. So, I don't know. But, there's no more staggered double -headers. The next one is week 14, and both games will start at 8 -15. I think that's the one that's going to piss a lot of people off. But, that's a long way down the road. You got the two TVs. Yeah. I asked you if ESPN, how they feel about Monday Night Football. Anything you've heard about how they feel about their new partnership with Pat McAfee. I mean, it's early, but they're bullish on it. I mean, they've kind of handed the keys to the network to McAfee. I mean, you can't - it's kind of like Stephen A. now. You can't really turn on ESPN almost every day except basically Sunday without seeing Pat. And so, you know, I think initially the ratings weren't that good. I think they got a little better in terms of the TV ratings. I think that kind of makes some sense because if you think about it, he was a YouTube show. Yeah, he's got to play for TV. Yeah, and he's still a YouTube show. Well, it is a play for TV because they think that they had Max in there before. They think that the ratings will be high enough that they'll be able to charge more for the ad rates. I guarantee you the money they'll make off of McAfee on social media and YouTube will be 8 billion times more than the money they made off Max Kellerman on social media. Oh, 100%. No, you're right. No, you're right. There's no doubt about that. And look, they want to get, I will say this, like, does it work? I think a lot of times when companies make big moves, you know, big time moves, a lot of times they make those moves when the person's kind of towards the end, you know, they got McAfee on the rise. Like, you know, we, you know, you and I have been aware of McAfee for years now, but he's really like, you know, here, I don't think he's at the plateau, you know, where most people go up and then they plateau and then they go down. He's at, he's still, I think, going up and then maybe the plateau is on the horizon and you can plateau for 20, 25 years if you have the right attitude and personality and just have the right act. So that's where I think that makes a lot of sense as a bet because it's not, I'll hit one close to home, Rick Riley leaving ESPN. I mean, leaving SI for ESPN where, you know, Rick Riley is one of the great columnist ever, but at that point, you know, whatever, maybe it was the internet, I don't know exactly. It just didn't really work as well at ESPN as it did at SI. And so I just think they've done that and that's kind of, you know, teams do that in sports and I think sometimes networks do that. And so I feel like signing McAfee in his mid -30s is kind of like signing a baseball free agent who's in his mid -20s and I think that's what you want to do as opposed to getting a, signing a 35 -year -old and, you know, thinking they can still play, you know, like, I don't know, like a Josh Donaldson, maybe trading for someone like that, Jimmy. You see what I did there? I don't need reminders of the horrific Yankee season. I just did that on purpose. I don't need that. My head was going, who am I going to say? All right, yeah, Josh Donaldson, but it was a treat. Just a, yeah, you want me to say Brian Cashman should be fired. It's amazing too, they replay that. I didn't know this was going to be the situation going into it, but they replay the show as soon as it's over, I think, on ESPN 2 and then they replay it at night on maybe ESPN News or one of their, what you said about if you're going to put on one of the ESPNs at any point in the day, you're going to see Pat McAfee. Yeah. So that's good for him. Like I, you know, people feel like - But I also think, ESPN has to be, they have Aaron Rodgers on their air every week. It's a news making thing that's on their air every week. They've got Nick, he's got Nick Saban on his show every week. Yeah. That's a news making thing every week. I would think ESPN has to be, forget the numbers because the numbers, I think, will be there. It's still a new thing. You have, the ESPN audience is older, the McAfee audience is younger, it might take some, but I would think ESPN just on the brand and the cachet of that show has to be thrilled. I think so. I mean, but if you talk, like I have, again, I'll probably make some calls here in the near future, but so I haven't talked specifically with anybody about that. But generally speaking, when these things first start, everyone loves it. So then we'll see. Again, I'm not saying, I could see it either way. Like, you know, McAfee has not really stayed at any of these, throughout any of these contracts he's had. So that's something to watch. Maybe this one he does, but that hasn't been the case previously. So that is something. I think the fact that he's on game day has to help the relationship there a little bit with ESPN. Here's the thing about McAfee. If you're managing him, in my opinion, and it's like Casey Jones, the former coach of the Celtics, was known for just throwing out the ball and telling McHale, Parrish, and Bird to go play, Dennis Johnson. At least that's how I remember as a kid. That was his reputation. And I think McAfee is sort of like that. Just give him the ball, let him do his thing. He's not looking to, you know, for some strategy. Let's, you know, triangle offense. He's not looking for that. He's looking for, let me do my thing. I know what I'm doing. And the thing about McAfee is he's very smart. Like, I know he plays this, like, he's not smart thing. It works very hard. He works hard and he's very smart. He's very savvy. He acts as if, like, you know, maybe he's, you know, just a dumb jock. But he understands the media business very well. We need, we need to discuss the Kelsey Taylor Swift thing because I actually think it's a legitimate media story. If Fox is going to get these increase in their demographics of the female audience, the young people, the NFL has gone all in on this thing. I mean, they changed their Twitter header to, like, a Taylor Swift thing. They're putting out Travis Kelsey Swiftiest plays on their social media. He's gained, I guess, a ton of followers, the jersey sale. Let me start with this. How did you think Fox handled it on Sunday when she was in the stadium? Do you think they overdid it? Do you think the fact that they had an unwatchable game takes them off the hook? What was your take on the Chiefs -Bears on Sunday when she was there? I think the second part, and I wouldn't take them off the hook, but I think the second part, you have an unwatchable game that you had to switch most of the country out of because it was so non -competitive, that you have Taylor Swift there, it's a big deal. And, you know, there's a lot of Taylor Swift fans who are football fans, a lot of non -Taylor Swift fans who weren't watching that game, but it was a talking point, right? Like, I saw Taylor Swift in the concert this summer, but that was kind of - Look at you! Yeah, how do you like that? Look at you! You couldn't even get tickets. Big shot. Where'd you get tickets? My daughter's friend just won the lottery. No shenanigans. Oh, really? Tickets were $235 each, which is still a lot of money, but not, like, $1 ,000. And it was just kind of happenstance, how I ended up going. I was going to say, if your daughter's friend got tickets, how did you end up at the era's tour? I mean - Were you, like - It's just a long drive to get to the metal lands, didn't want them driving back. They're older, they can drive, but at, you know, one o 'clock in the morning from Taylor Swift, so - But you were in MetLife and watched the show. Yes. Friendship bracelets? Well, you want to know something funny? This is a good one. So, my daughter's friend said to me, do you want a - do you want a jewel? And I'm like, no, no, no, I'm okay. Thinking she's saying a jewel, like a jewel, smoke. But she was saying, like, to, like, get bedazzled, a little jewel, which I would have taken. So later, I was like, I told my daughter, I said, but your friend, she said she asked me if I wanted a jewel. She's like, no, no, she didn't say you wanted a jewel. She said, do you want a - a jewel to put some ju - you know. Right. I didn't have any bracelets, but I was into - I liked Taylor Swift. I wouldn't go again. I kind of felt bad being there, because there's people who give their left arm to be there. But it was - look, she is an unbelievable performer. I mean, it was - you could - first of all, I liked some of her songs. Secondly, the level of performance. It was just, you know, it was an A+. I mean, that - that - and that is something, even if you didn't like her music, you can appreciate it. And also, I appreciate it if I had to go to the bathroom. Easy pass right in there. No one. Right. No one's leaving their seat except for people like you who aren't in it. Yeah, and especially, yeah, and more skewed women.

A highlight from Time Travel to 1994: A Journey into the Music and Movies of that year.
"Well, here we are, episode 119. And on this episode, myself in the wrecking tube, Mark Smith and Lou Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. We'll be talking about the year 1994, in music and movies I think, it's always interesting. So sit back, relax, break out your flannel shirt, your grungy jeans, and enjoy 1994 music. It was an interesting year, so I think you'll enjoy it. More interesting than what Todd Zauchman thinks it is. He thinks it's nothing, so we'll see. The KLFB studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music, enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends, and welcome to the podcast. You know the name, I'm not gonna say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, Dlive, Twitch, and X, formerly known as Twitter, and I don't know how many other live platforms. Well, it's gonna be a good show tonight. It's gonna be an interesting show tonight. Yeah, 1994. As I said in the intro, my friend Todd Zauchman just absolutely sent me a text destroying the year 1994. Oh, I just looked up 1994, I don't know what you're gonna talk about, there's a few things and I don't know how you're gonna make a whole show out of it, and good luck with that, because that's how he talks. That's exactly how he talks. I'm just gonna do this, and you know, it's not gonna be a good, blah, blah, blah, blah. That's how he talks. Now, he'll deny that, and you'll never know if that's the way he talks or not. He'll just have to take my word for it. I'm Todd Zauchman, and I don't know about 1994. Well, enough about him. He'll probably be piping in pretty soon, but yeah, 1994, it's a good year. It was a good year for Mark Smith from the Music Rellers Show and Luke Colicchio from the Music Rellers Show. That's for damn sure. It was. What's up, gentlemen? It was a really good year. How you doing? I was just guessing. I figured for 94, listen, we were all younger, so it was better. It was a big year. Hey. So I have to stop right here. Dave Phillips, who's been watching the podcast from pretty much day one, Patty Yossi. Hi, Patty. Good evening. I love you. Dave Phillips, for the last couple of weeks, he's piped in at the end, and he's like, I missed it. Like something's changed. Ah, Tiffany Van Hill. That's my buddy. That's my buddy, Tiffany. She's one of the people that teaches me how to work with horses. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So. And she knows what she's talking about. She's modest, but she's very good at what she does. As are all of my friends and teachers, trainers, mentors from The Herd Foundation in Delray Beach, Florida. It's a nonprofit if you're in the mood to donate today. Look them up. Herd Foundation. Give us some money. Nah, I'm not going like that. No. No, we do. We help veterans. We help veterans, and so it's a good cause. But back to Tiffany. Yep. That's my buddy. Good evening. The Herd Foundation teaches us so much. That's right. That's right. Maybe I'll do a Herd Foundation podcast. You should. Since I'm pretty good at it. You're going to have horses on? What's the horse named after the cookie? Huh? Isn't there a horse named after a cookie? What are some of the horses' names? Oh, Fig Newton. Fig Newton. Yeah. Fig Newton. That's my boy. That's my boy. Good looking horse. Yes. Yes, he is. And we have Stitch. Fig Newton is a retired dressage horse, dancing horse, right? Echoes of Echo and the Bunny Men bring on the dancing horses. We have Stitch. He's a retired racehorse. We have Miss America. She's a retired jumper. Then we have two mini horses. We have Cinnamon. She was a cot horse. You know, pulls the kids around. As would be Sammy. Sammy's the one that looks like Kaja Gugu for you people from the 80s. Looks like Lamal. It looks like Lamal from Kaja Gugu. Gotta do. And he was saved from a kill pen. Yeah. But he's a mini, but he thinks he's a Clydesdale. What do they do with horses after that? Is that the proverbial glue factory? All right. You know what? Right away. Penalty box. Oh. He's raining on my parade. I'm in a good mood. Now I'm all bummed out. Thanks. You feel sad for the drummer now. This is going to be a horrible show now. Leave it to the drummer. Right, Mark? Leave it to the drummer. Get out. It's always the drummer's fault. That's right. See, Tiffany says, that does not exist past our gates, Lou. Because nobody wants to talk. Back to the penalty box. Great start to the show. Lou is just in a mood tonight. I think he's been hitting the whistle. What's going to happen? You're going to come back and it's going to be an empty chair. He's very ornery tonight. Right away. He's very ornery. All right. He's filling his oats, as they would say. Yeah. All right. Lou's back. I'm all right. I'm all right. Okay. Enough about horses, although I could now, at this point, talk about horses for two hours. I love it. I love it. But instead, gentlemen, first of all, how's things on the music relish show? You. Take it away, Lou. Sure. It's fine. It was such an awful show. I thought I said the wrong show for a second there. It's been nothing short of amazing. Don't jump over each other to answer that question. It's always fun. Last week was fun. We got knocked down a bit by Warner Brothers because we played a clip of an America song featuring Dan Peake. Yeah. You're going to watch that. Yeah. We talked through the whole thing, but Spotify is much cooler than YouTube. YouTube sucks like that. YouTube, they have a very strong algorithm. They can kiss my rosy red ass over that. That's right. You tell them, Lou. Fuckers. That's right. Get me kicked off YouTube. That's right. Let me see. John Morris, he was our shift commander. When I met him, I was, I think, a two striper, and he was what they called a butterbot. He was a second lieutenant, I believe. He said, tell them stories from the Nipah Hut in the Philippines. That's a big no. That's a whole other podcast, but they would never make it on the air. Just leave it at that. It's like a chain of Nipah Huts? No. It was a bar slash club called the Nipah Hut. Tell one story. No. They had a giant spaceship that would come down from the top. It's kind of like George Clinton in parliament. At the end of the show, this big spaceship came down from the top. Smoke. Like you said, parliament fucking pelican. Then the thing went open, and everyone would walk up and get up on stage, all those drunk GIs. Like, yeah, I'm going in the spaceship, and you go down these stairs, and you're in a fucking basement. I don't think it was a basement. It's like something from a fucking horror movie. How do you get out? And then somebody goes, this way, this way, go, go, go, go. That's the cleanest story I can tell you. It's the cleanest story I can tell you. Sounds like fun. It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. I got a story for you off the air one of these days. So okay, music relish show's going good. Excellent. I just wanted to say, Lou brought up, he made the show. His segment on bad love songs. That will go down in history as some of the best podcasting ever. Bad love songs? Really bad love songs. The worst love songs of all time, like in rock. It's a deep vein. Is that something, is that like content I could probably like borrow with Perry Mind? Because I'd love to hear that list someday. We voted him off the board. We're no longer a false triumvirate democracy. Wait a minute. We toppled the AI monarchy. There's three of us on this one. Are you two going to overthrow me too? Are you like rebels? None of those stories you're told, no. They're wrecking too. Instead I'll start calling you the Sandinistas. The hostile takeovers. You go on podcasts just to take them over? Like Amiens took over the White House. Really, yeah. Yeah, we could do that. I would love to. Maybe next week we'll do, we'll take a break from the years and we'll do like a, kind of a jambalaya, you know, of stuff. Like throw some music news in there. We'll do some trivia. Maybe I'll come up with some questions for you guys. You could give us that deep vein of worst love songs ever. And it's funny, we noticed that several of them made everyone's list of worst love songs. So it's got to be universally bad. Okay. If everyone said that, that fucking song. Then there were a couple where I said I liked the song, but Lou and Perry were like, what? I'm always, you know, on the one side. Yeah, the one. When it falls into like that kind of metal, metal category, you have a soft spot. Air metal. Metal ballads. Oh my God. How I grew up. Yeah, yeah. As young as Ron Mark, you didn't have to deal with those 70s ones. Yeah, that's true. I did. This fucking guy. Blah. See what I mean? He's setting the bar high. Remember, this is how he talks. I don't think there's anything good about 1994. Blah. So he talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yeah, well, an American Arnold Schwarzenegger. He talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger without the accent. We're going to pass the bar on this one. I am here. Let me see if you can entertain me. 1994. Blah. All right. So let's actually get right into 1994. Yeah. So we'll start on January 19th, 1994. Bryan Adams becomes the first major Western music star to perform in Vietnam since the end of the Vietnam War. Oh, shit. Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams, yeah. Wow. On January 21st to February, as it's spelled, the Big Day Out Festival takes place, again, expanding from those previous years. Blah, blah, blah. Auckland, New Zealand. The festival is headlined by Soundgarden, Ramones, and Bjork. Nice. That's an interesting... Probably each night there were headlines. I would love to see Bjork. Me too. I would never want to see the Ramones. They'll never get back together again. Unless they perform in the Pet Sematary. Yeah. Hey, Lou, can you put him in the green room? No, I'd like that one. That's a good one. Come on, there's a little crossover. Put him in the green room. Put him in the green room. Okay, yeah, yeah. Oh, it's going to be a long show. It's going to be a long one tonight. I feel better about myself now. Got a little redemption? The redemption song? Yes. I got a Buffett story for you. Oh, yeah? His one song was The Pirate Looks at 40. He would segue into Bob Marley's redemption song. Oh, jeez. And it didn't quite... Wait a minute. Buddy, that is the quickest way to get to the penalty box. I'm not playing it, though. I know you're not. You're poking the rhino right now. I'm a guitarist. You're poking the rhino right now. You're not a rhino, you're a nice guy. Come on, we went through that last week. And so, as I've been saying each week, I'm just going to say right now, where's Jack? Okay, and we'll move on from that. Hey, Jack. Hey, Jack, please come back. He didn't listen before, so I don't think he's listening now. Let's see. January 25th, Alice in Chains released their Jar of Flies album, which makes its U .S. chart debut at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first ever EP to do that. Right? But they still are always talked about as like number three or number four out of the big four. Big four being? Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden. And Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains is never getting that kind of... Whereas... That first album, the record company made them sound like another band. Yeah. And that's not their fault. They were produced that way. Dirt was a great album. Yes, yes. And Layne Staley was one of the greatest frontmen ever. Just as cool as the other side of the pillow, as they say. Yeah. voice Very unique also. Today we were talking about what we were going to talk about in the show. And he goes, when I saw the videos, he goes, I didn't match his face with the way he looked. Right? He said he was expecting like a grungy, more... No, he was slick. He was slick. In the Man in the Box video, he's got the kind of long... But then he changed it up. He slicked the hair back, he wore the shades, you know. Just turned into a... Suzanne McPhail. Another one of my horse people. She's the one that introduced me to that whole thing. And she said, who's Jack? That's right, I guess. At this point. On January 29th, The Supremes' Mary Wilson is injured when her Jeep hits a freeway median and flips over just outside of LA. Wilson's 14 -year -old son is killed in the accident. What a good day. Ah, this fucking... I saw this and I was like... Dead horses was a bummer. I know, I know. I saw this and I'm like, there's no way around this. February 1st, Green Day releases their breakthrough album, Dookie. Ushering in the mid -1990s punk revival. Dookie eventually achieves diamond certification. Now, I did like them back then. I actually did. I was stationed in Southern California in Riverside. And I decided to get like a side job. You know, I was in the Air Force. But I was like, I want to make a little more money. I want to do something. So I got a job at a record store. Cool. Was it Spencer's or something? Forget the name of it. Oh, Spencer's. They sold all the trinkets, too. No, no, it wasn't Spencer's then. It was something like that. It was a chain. Hot topic. They sold DVDs, too. FYE. No, it wasn't that. I'll remember it. I was working there when Dookie came out and the fucking whole wall was covered with Dookie CDs and they were flying off the shelves. It had a pretty fresh sound. It was fresh then. And coming off the 80s were kind of slick in a lot of ways, except for some of the real heavy alternative. But to hear a song like that on the radio, that was like hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit on mainstream rock radio. Good drummer, too. As a band, whether you like him or not, I think he's really good. Billy Joe Armstrong. Oh, Trey Cool. Trey Cool, yeah. February 7th, Blind Melons lead singer is Shannon Poon forced to leave the American Music Awards ceremony because he is loud and disruptive behavior. Poon is later charged with battery assault, resisting arrest, and destroying a police station telephone. Now, this is the dude that sang, you know, And I don't really care if I sleep all day And he's in the daisy field, so you think he's like this really, like, chill dude. And like, you know, me and the B -girl, man, you know. The B -girl, yes. And the tap -dancing B -girl, and like, I'm just this dude's a fucking lunatic. He was taking substances that made him. Oh, yeah. That was a short career. Was it him that did a duet with Guns N' Roses? What was the video, a song from Guns N' Roses with a video where they're up on like a water tower and they jump into the water or something. I forget what it was called. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they did it with him.

you were late you had to clean your nose and he's back in Paris again you brown nose er I've been a bad dog my laptop and he's back in pair you left here in Paris you must have left it back in the United States I did I left on the plane how you doing Lou I'm doing alright how are you guys doing well I just had a little technical difficulty and we blamed you because you weren't here so you left me alone and I had to talk opera with myself talked opera yeah rigoletto did you talk about rigoletto this time I'm just really boring you know I'm like all right this is why this is a two and a half hour podcast some of us have to work tomorrow all right here we go let's jump right into 1967 musical events in 1967 and the year kicks off right away with a bomb a bomb on January 4th the doors release can arguably one of the greatest debut records ever arguably if you had a top 25 greatest debut that albums would have to be in the top 10 it would have to be yeah you know if you had a top 50 that would have to be in the top 10 right even if you don't like them you have to say that was so ahead of its time oh it's so different nothing out there was like the needle and all you hear it kicks I mean fucking what a way to start an album it's a heavy song it with a bossa nova beat yeah I mean that's pretty clever yeah 67 so you know bossa nova was pretty hip again John Densmore over underrated underrated underappreciated I think you are you are so correct you know never gets the the the consideration that I I don't know you can't put him in greatest of all time but could he be okay if there's a top there's a top 25 drummer top 25 drummers is he in it good question and in rock we'll just say in rock I think he could be I could see him making so I don't know if he's a universal pick but I could see him on some list I mean he's something you'd have to think about like you said like it doesn't get noticed so much you know yeah yeah or it I mean although his drumming wasn't shy I mean he's jazzy as hell I heard um writers on the storm yesterday and his adjustment playing is great in his adjustments during the shows just for that yeah yeah the unpredictability of you know how the how the song was gonna go right because they could rehearse it all they want once Morrison got into that zone well in the drama keeps the beat right yeah yeah the drummer has to stay up with that yeah and played to the clown so to speak right you know and my my problem is if some of the clowns don't have the beat you know at one point they've got to give in like I said Morrison or even Dylan they'll set the tone but they've got to be steady themselves you know it's yeah otherwise it's just erratic but you know yeah guy like Dan's more I mean I had skill I had a lot of a lot of technical ability right feel yes cool so obviously his drums always sounded good yeah on the earlier on the other records even you know three years worth of music whatever I guess I would be who produced some Jack Holtzman was the producer did a good job Jekyll or now wait so no what was it Paul Rothchild yes yes yes I'm sorry Holtzman was he on the record company yeah yeah was that it was that chrysalis or chrysalis I think or just like yes that's a lecture a lecture weren't they on chrysalis though also I thought they were yeah maybe maybe chrysalis was a subsidiary but uh yeah Jack Holtzman's son is Adam Holtzman he's a keyboardist right now he plays with here we go Stephen Wilson but he does a little blog on Facebook and he talks about growing up and he was like six years old and his father brought him to a club to see the tour Wow at six years old he just talks about like yeah it's a great little blog Wow all right and four days later on January 8th Elvis Presley turned 32 on January 14th the human be in right the human be e -i -n human being takes place in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park polo fields with spoken words from Timothy Leary Allen Ginsberg Gary Snyder in others live music was provided by Jefferson Airplane the Grateful Dead Big Brother in the holding company and Quicksilver Messenger Service speeches from Jerry Rubin and others were also given at the event although it's one band there I liked yeah Quicksilver Messenger Service who was it on January 15th 1967 who is your favorite poet of all them I know you're not asking me Arthur Rimbaud who influenced Jim Morrison good answer good answer way to bring that first opening segment rough full circle we're getting better Scott we're good now you guys get a lot of good trust me I'm getting a lot of good feedback so let's keep it at that I don't want you son ask for more money and on January 15th 1967 the Rolling Stones appear on the Ed Sullivan show at Ed Sullivan's request finish it he asked them to let's spend sing let's spend some time together is that the one there you go yeah and then he told him a really big shoe I hate to do this I mean I come back on penalty box I don't say just he beat my record okay look he just got on the show after late and these are either he's stuck he's frozen put the dog nose back on where'd it go are you throw it at the camera like your headphones on January 16th 1967 the monkeys begin work on headquarters the first album to give them complete artistic and technical control over their material and it was fucking horrible fucking horrible what were they thinking they know they were thinking the egos got too big they thought they were the music well the argument can be made that you know Mike Nesmith did write different drum yeah so he could write songs but I don't think he was a pop songwriter you know headquarters and they try to be all fucking like 60 ish and shit they weren't looking for pop were they they're trying

It's now 4 47 October is breast cancer Awareness Month and it's a time when cancer survivors remind us that early detection saves lives. Medical reporter Liz Bona shares a story of recovery. Two women diagnosed just days apart are sharing journey a with us in hopes of inspiring others to not skip a mammogram. UC mammograms led early to detection of breast cancer for both Crystal King and Ashley Welker. I immediately knew after seeing it that I knew what it and my um wife was actually diagnosed the day before Ashley was just 38 years old. So I had actually felt a lump um so uh as soon as I felt the lump I scheduled my mammogram. Right away both women started treatment on different courses. cancer My was triple negative breast cancer. But similar struggles. Nurse Navigator Mary Lou Sauer of Ohio's Tri Health helps many through some of these struggles. I think the often first thing they think about is am I going to die? Am I going to die? And I tell them reassuringly breast cancer treatment nowadays is top notch. We have cutting edge treatments and this is not likely a death sentence for them. They're likely to live a long life from something else. Now a year out Crystal and Ashley are both in remission and have an important reminder if you recently missed a mammogram. You know finding it early makes a big difference. They also remind us if you're living this journey or are you in love it with someone slow down enjoy every day and give yourself time to heal. That's one thing I try to keep in the forefront when I get frustrated or you know get down your body is still healing. Body and mind I'd say yeah right yeah that's a mental aspect that goes into it quite a bit as well so um you know that it's just some time to heal. A medical reporter Liz Bowness. It's now 4 49.

A highlight from Ep. 117 - A Year in Review: The Music and Magic of 1972
"Well, here we are, episode 117, and for my friend Todd Salkman who's not really good with numbers or math, that's episode 117, my friend, and on this episode, in the house I have the Wrecking Two, Mark Smith and Lou Colicchio from the Music Relish Show, and we're going to be talking about the year 1972 in music. What a year, I mean, albums like American Pie, Led Zeppelin IV, Tapestry, it's a great year. So sit back, relax, put on your bell -bottoms and your platform shoes, put on that polyester shirt or that concert T -shirt and enjoy the show. Let's talk music. Enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. You know the name, but I'm not going to say it. And welcome to the podcast. You know the name, I'm not going to say it. We're streaming live right now on Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Dlive, and yada, yada, yada. After this livestream, this will go to about every podcast platform in the universe. So it's going to be a good show tonight. Good show. Going to be talking about 1972 in music. Very interesting. Very interesting. I was 17. And let's bring him on. Oh, wait, 17. When I was 17. It was a very... You're lying, by the way. I know I'm lying. God damn. Yeah, yeah. I was 40. And then there was the Gen X -er, Mark Smith. I was three. Three. Three. What's up, gentlemen? My wrecking crew. Doing good. Yeah. All right. Nice to see you. Absolutely. Absolutely. Did you know, we're technically, I don't have the feedback, Generation Jones. Generation Jones? They're calling that. It's the younger cohort of the Baby Boomers. Because we're kind of young to be Baby Boomers in a lot of ways. I'm not buying that. I like Baby Boomers. You're not buying that? No. I don't. I don't. Although in 72, I was a basketball Jones. I got a basketball Jones. Only Baby Boomers know that. And maybe some Gen X -ers that lean back. Except Mark. Not me. You never listened to Cheech and Chong? Yeah. I got Big Bamboo. That's a Cheech and Chong skit. I just got Big Bamboo. That's my album. Okay. Okay. I went downtown to look for a job. Going downtown, gonna see my gal, gonna sing her a song. I'm gonna show her my ding dong. Did he just say ding dong? Blind baby. Blind melon chitlin. So, have you ever gone back and listened to a Cheech and Chong album, Luke? No. I did. And I was kind of like, huh. Meaning? They were good for their time. But you remember all the good stuff about Cheech and Chong albums. But then when you go back and listen to them, they may be not as funny as they were in the 70s. You've lost that shock value. I think they're amusing, but I think we thought they were hilarious back in the day. My father thought they were funny, which I thought was odd. Oh, and they went on to brilliance by making all that stuff into movies. Absolutely. You know, kind of launched them to a whole new generation. My dad liked the line, Bailiff whack his pee pee. That's right. That's right. Good evening, Patty Ossie. Always the first one in. Always the first one in. So, I'm kind of operating a little... Okay, boomer. I hate that. I do too. I'm operating a little differently tonight. My wife, the beautiful Dr. Vera, bought me a laptop. Now I can kind of... I was using an iPad for all my notes and stuff. So, now I'm just going to kind of see how this works out. Yeah, getting a little... It works good. I got mine. Yeah, yeah. I'm going for mine. Ah, yes, Lou. Mark was a little worried before the show. I was having internet issues. He said you forgot your laptop. No, no, it's just nothing's connecting. Do us a favor tonight. Keep moving, because last week you cut still a couple times, and I went, uh -oh. That was with Perry. Every once in a while, pick your notes. On Music Relative, Perry said, you froze up the whole time, but it came out. Anyway, we'll see. All right, so we've got a lot to cover here tonight, gentlemen. As usual, I got some good, good, good... Did I say good feedback? From last week's show. I think people are liking the year.

So, I think we might stick with this format for a little while. Maybe we'll break off and go a little to the left. It's kind of like the show Supernatural, right? Supernatural, one of my favorite shows ever. They had a beautiful way of staying on, keeping storylines going, but at the same time, every couple episodes, they kind of divert and do something different, but the storyline is still in there, so maybe this is how I'll work this, you know? And we'll see. We haven't even ever touched the 60s and even the 90s. I think the 90s could be interesting also. Every year has a bunch of albums you love, and it reminds you of those albums. They're all different. I mean, if you look at 72, the scope of music in 72, it's all over the place. Yeah. Let me put the chat overlay right on the screen so people can see. People like to see their comments, I think. Yeah. Especially on Winthrop Live or Winthrop Votes or whatever. Yes. Yes. And somebody actually mentioned that they love the part where Mark goes, here we go again.
A highlight from 1243. Marques Brownlee WRONG on Solana Saga | Best Phone Value For Web3
"All right, so today we're going to dive into a response video to Marques Brownlee. You might know him as MKBHD. Now what Marques did was he jumped into the Solana phone. So we're going to break it down, give you guys some insights, and maybe give you a second opinion here. I think you'll like it. My name is Paul Baron. Welcome back in The Tech Path. Let's go over to Marques' YouTube page. And as you'll notice here, Marques Brownlee, 17 .4 million subscribers right now. And he did this phone review right here, which of course many of you will recognize this. If you're on our channel, maybe you're brand new to understanding what's happening. You just searched out something and thought, hey, this is a Solana phone. What is that? He got 1 .2 million video views on this in about 18 hours. So when you look at the impact on Solana and also the impact, I think, on Web3, Marques actually has a lot to say here. So we're going to break down some clips for you. Let's go to this first one. Take a look. Now I know I have been notably skeptical on crypto and Web3 and blockchain and the metaverse and all that sort of stuff over the past couple of years. So you may consider me biased, but I still think if you took the crypto out of this phone, it would at least have potential for one specific crypto stack. One that happens to also be tanking pretty hard and has been tanking for months. This becomes the perfect embodiment of crypto in 2023 at best ahead of its time. All right. So, I mean, hit on a lot of things here. First of all, I agree with him when it comes to the device itself. The hardware is, I would say, a middle -of -the -road, run -of -the -mill hardware. That's not really the advantage of what the Saga brings to a user or to an owner of it. We'll break down a lot of what that is. Before we go there, getting into who this phone is for and then understanding the real strengths of it is, most of the time, is pretty typical of a Marques Brownlee review. It just did not exist here. I think he really weighed heavily on the hardware side of it. And that, I think, was the undoing of really giving the Saga, but more importantly, Web 3, a chance. I want to clip over to this next clip right here of iJustine. Listen in. Now, one of the problems that I've run into, and if you were also into NFTs or crypto, is how difficult and not secure things are to transact on mobile. Now, most of the time, you do need a desktop or you need to have a wallet app browser, and it's super frustrating to try to navigate. And it's also not entirely secure. Now, what I do like about the Saga is that they're introducing a seed vault, so your salon of private keys and seeds are stored securely protected by a dedicated hardware security module called a secure element. I like this because you actually own your assets and you can transfer or sell them if you want. I kind of think of this when I was playing Animal Crossing for my entire island that I've spent 1 ,700 hours playing and building. If that was something that was on the blockchain, I would be able to easily transfer that entire island to someone else. And each one of those assets wouldn't just be something that I would have in the game. It would be something that I physically, well, digitally owned and would be able to do whatever I wanted with them. Now, if there was some other game that was on that particular blockchain that also decided to share those same assets, I could then take those assets into, I don't know, for example, if it's Call of Duty. I could maybe take some of my wardrobe, the outfits that I had made or created in Animal Crossing or purchased, and I could wear them in Call of Duty. So I'm going to be either going up with this ship or I'm going to be going down with it. I like the fact that, first of all, that's exactly right. The salonophone is for a person like iJustine, someone who is a gamer, someone who is into digital assets, someone who is looking at the next generation of digital privacy and digital ownership. Here's Unbox Therapy. Just to give you guys a size capacity, that's 20 million subs right there on Unbox Therapy. Lou does a great job. And you go back to Marques, we'll go up to his channel right here, 17 million subs right there. And then over here to iJustine, also another tech reviewer, iJustine, at 7 million. So you can imagine the kind of damage that tech reviewers that have this much authority and influence can do. And it doesn't mean that they shouldn't because they should be able to review these devices, give honest opinions, and be able to come up with a solution that maybe can help you. And I think that's the missing part here. All right, so I want to go to this next clip real quick and listen in to this one. There's basically three things that make this a cryptophone instead of just another regular Android phone. So the Solana Mobile Stack, the Seed Vault, and the DApp Store. So the Solana Mobile Stack is an SDK for apps to connect to the Solana blockchain, which, I mean, it's cool that it's built in, but the obvious downside being this does not work with any other blockchain. So no Bitcoin, no Litecoin, no Ethereum. This is just focused on the Solana blockchain. Now price is another thing that comes into play. And I agree again with what Marques said here, but listen into his response on price. A thousand dollars. And that's this one right here. Does any of this justify a thousand dollar price tag? Not really worth a thousand bucks, right? So that's why literally less than a year after it came out, the price plummeted from a thousand to $600. So now the real question is, would you pay, would anybody pay $600 for a barely above average well -built Android phone that happens to have some crypto features built in? You can get a lot more phone for 600 bucks for the same price you could get a Pixel 7 or probably a Pixel 8 by the time it comes out. All right. So just to be clear on this again, and back to the previous clip there, when he was talking about Ethereum and Bitcoin, yes, Bitcoin, why would you need that on there? There's not really a use case for Bitcoin on a device like that. However, Ethereum, yes, there is and can be used within the Solana ecosystem. So that's, again, just another scenario. Now price -wise, the value of these phones drop very quick, very fast. In many cases, a lot of these phones end up being, you know, giveaways on plans that go through the systems, whether it's AT &T, mobile, T -Mobile, etc. One thing about Solana, if you follow them and when they release the saga, they only needed to get, I think, to about 15 ,000 or 20 ,000 phones total. That was like the ecosystem that would make this a successful launch. And that would give them enough data and enough examples of how use cases within the Dapp store and also within the wallet aspect of what this phone brings to Web3 to start to really see new development start to occur. And that's when I think we'll start to see the leap forward in other technology. I want to go to this next one because this starts to bridge the gap on the value of this phone, not at just the price alone. Listen in. And something that comes with the Solana Dapp store, something that we haven't seen any other app store do, because the Solana Dapp store allows you to have this direct relationship with consumers, you can do new things like reward them. So we're introducing the saga Genesis token. It's an NFT that establishes that they are a saga user. And because we can establish that relationship, we're going to give them rewards. They'll immediately get 20 USDC and a small amount of Sol to get them started on their journey. But we aren't stopping there because this is an open platform. So this is open to any Dapp, and they're already taking advantage. So you can expect to see exclusive sticker packs from folks like Dialect, plus not getting you off a wait list, a $25 credit from Magic Eden, exclusive mints of 2 ,000 new, brand new Klainosaurs, and many more. So we're excited because this is the first time that you actually get rewarded for using your phone. It's the phone that keeps on giving. A scenario that plays out for all phone makers in the future, and that is figuring out utility, use case, and value within an ecosystem. And that's where I think Solana is doing some interesting things. So right here was the pass that they were talking about, just the saga pass when you buy one of these phones. Then you go into other scenarios right here. This was the saga pass cards. These were just some of the cards, again, that you got. And we'll continue to get additional values out of this. And as partnerships start to come in, this is where these, because remember, each one of these cards, each one of these NFTs, each one of these assets, whether it's a whitelist scenario that plays into this or others, especially as we start to see more partnerships and more use cases really start to move into the Web3 ecosystem. That's where Solana's value and where the value of the saga becomes very interesting because now you're getting paid, essentially, to have this device. There is nothing else out there like that on the market at all. The real secret mission, though, I think that is here is the fact that this is going to bridge the gap into digital ID. And digital ID is you own and manage all of your assets, including your own personal identification as opposed to Facebook, Twitter, Apple, et cetera, owning you right now. And that's the way it is today. Further into this, I want to get in and just show some of the things you could have got. This is kind of an interesting aspect of this particular phone. With every one of these phones, you get a device -bound, non -transferable NFT, which is the Genesis token, which in itself is kind of a unique technology. And as you start to understand the NFT market, you're going to understand that utility is going to be one of the killer apps of the future. And when you have that kind of use case built into hardware technology, along with wallet security, digital ID, the future of how mobile computing will be done really starts to change things up quite a bit. Further into this, here was Magic Eden. If you have a Solana Saga, there's 25 USDC waiting for you. Set up your Saga Genesis token, sign in, and then head over to the rewards hub and claim. Bonk was, of course, airdropped directly into the Saga and the pre -orders. Here was Solana Mobile. This was another advantage, concluding the first mint on Kleenasors, one of the hottest NFTs out there right now. And again, this will only continue to grow. And I think this is where the value of that phone keeps ticking down after, whether you think about that retail price tag, if you bought one when it was $1 ,000, it's probably a different, you're a different kind of buyer than anybody out there because you're a crypto native and that value to you is much greater than the $1 ,000 price tag of that phone. But the $600 phone buyer maybe is a little different buyer. And now they're starting to look at true value. So imagine all those value points that have been added to the Solana phone over time here and it starts to just chip away and it continues to add to it. So that, to me, is a pretty cool thing. And if you just look at current value of Kleenasors right there, I mean, they're at $17 right now, Sol trading around, you know, anywhere between $19 to $21. So not bad. So here was a tweet from Solana Mobile. It's been said before, Saga is the phone that keeps on giving over the past few weeks. We've got 100 whitelist spots across the hottest NFT mints on Solana just for Saga users. Take a look at the whitelist spots and we've got away so far.
A highlight from Ep. 116 - Talking About The Music Of 1977
"Well, here we are. Episode 116. On the march to 200 and beyond. And on this episode, I have the Wrecking Two with me, Mark Smith and Luke Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. And we're going to be talking about the year 1977, and music, and some movies, some news flashbacks maybe. Interesting, yeah. I say it was the beginning of the end of the 70s. Yeah. So sit back, relax, get yourself some Acapulco Gold or some Panama Red, break open a bottle of Rianini Limbrusco, sit back, relax, and enjoy 1977 all over again. The KLFB Studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music. Enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. I got a little FaceTime from young Amanda this afternoon. So I'm sitting there just kind of chilling. Oh, my little girl's calling me. She calls me. And hi. I'm like, what's up, little girl? She just kind of looks and says, can I see the cats? Oh, yeah, that's my life. She don't miss me. Misses the cats. Anyway, welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. And welcome to the podcast. Do you know the name of it? So I'm not going to say it. We're streaming live right now over YouTube, Twitch, Twitter. It's Twitter, formerly known as Twitter X, whatever, a lot of them all over the place. It's going to be a good show tonight. It's going to be a good show. In the intro, I mentioned Acapulco Gold. And speaking of Acapulco Gold, it's Luke Aleccio from the Music Relish show. No stems, no seeds that you don't need. Acapulco Gold is... There you go, buddy. That's a blast. That's sweet. Let me give you some of that, buddy. Thank you. Yeah. A little teaching charm for you. Enough of that. And speaking of Panama Red, it's Mark Smith from the Music Relish. Chardonnay Gold. Instead of Acapulco Gold, he's got the Chardonnay Gold. Yeah. As usual. What's up, gentlemen? How you doing, gentlemen? Good. How are you? Doing all right. Doing all right. Yeah. Hey, you know who I don't miss? Who? I really don't miss Jimmy Buffett. Let's start off the show on a... He's a cynic. I don't miss him. I don't miss him. I'm not going to miss Jimmy Buffett. I really jumped on that bandwagon. Never really got it. Me neither. To me, it's not a bandwagon thing. It's something where I knew there's two or three songs and more steel drums, really more steel drums. But things I've heard, you know, scanning through Margaritaville radio, there was some pretty good stuff. You know, like nothing going to change your world, but you know... It's not my type of music. No, I'm not a parrothead. And I think his concerts were his big, like the Grateful Dead, you know? The concert is what it is. The experience. Yeah. Right? The Jimmy Buffett experience. I guess so. Yeah. It was his motif, you know, escapism kind of, you know. But he did spawn that horrible genre of golf and western music. Yeah. Yeah. I'd rather sit in the parking lot with a cooler of beers and a hibachi and listen to the pretenders. Yeah. Did Jimmy ever tour with the dead? Is there really a fuck up with the dead? That would have been a huge crowd, though. Boy, that's the mellowest concert ever. Dead parrotheads. Dead parrotheads. I think he's more of that mellow west coast. I think I could see him touring with the Eagles or James Taylor, I think, more now. He's some Key West buddy. Don't put him on the left coast. No, no, no. He's a Key West man. He was his own entity. Actually, he moved from the Key West. He didn't live there for a long time. Right. But his studio was there. His studio was right next to his bar, right like connected to his studio. Yeah. So that's where he would go. I remember when I worked U .S. Customs behind the scenes at Miami International, he had his own private jet. It would come up from, I guess, the Keys, but he didn't travel in just anything. It would be like, because if you have your own jet, you have a parking spot. You would have a bus. You would have a bus, like a tour bus would take him from Key West. It is from Miami. It's about a two hour drive. So you're going to do it in luxury, but everything's good with you guys. Hot. Yeah. Too damn hot up here in New York. It's hot as Bono's whatever was balls in the back of my neck. Yeah. Yeah. I don't like this. I want winter. Did Lou freeze up? Oh, no. There we go again. The pressure's on me. I got to be Lou. You've got to be Lou. Let me get this brain. I've got to be Lou. I've got to be Lou. Then there he goes. He's off the screen. Ten minutes. Let's set the timer. Set the timer. Will he break ten minutes? Will he come back on under ten minutes? Let's see. I'm starting it. See? I got the timer going there. All right. All right. Well, we're talking about 1977. I was old, but eight years old. So, I was, let me see, probably 12 going on 13, I think, right? I'm 59 now, so you're what, 56? 53. 53? Yeah. And you were eight? Yeah. I was born in 1969. So, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12. Yeah. That was right. 13. Well, 12, 13. Yeah. Yeah. I think I was beginning. I was a freshman. I was a freshman. Although, where I grew up, the freshman didn't go to the high school. That was only 10, 11, and 12. Ninth grade was at its own building. Oh. Isn't that interesting? Yeah. Yeah. But, yeah, 1977, interesting year. Yeah. A lot happened. Yeah. As I said in the intro, I think 1977 was the beginning of the end of the 70s. Yeah. Things were really starting to change. I think disco still had a little bit of a hold, but I think that was the tail end of disco, and it was the beginning of punk, and so there was a transition. That's where, I think, right there is where it started. So, let's get right into 77, as I usually do. I'm starting to like this little format. Yeah. Year by year. And it makes a long podcast, but hey, listen, we're in it for the ride with whoever's listening. We're in it for the ride. January 1st, 1977, The Clash headlined the opening night of London's only punk rock club. You know the name of that club? No. The Roxy. Another Roxy. Yeah. Wow. Yeah. So, let's start right off with stories. So, I get off the plane at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines. So, 10 years later, right? 10 years later, 87, I get off the plane. My buddy's there, meets me. It lands right on the base. They called it the freedom bird because the turnaround flight was taking people home, right? I get, you know, they bring me back to temporary quarters. I get changed. My buddy's like, let's go. And we go off base. And it is absolutely insane. Like, you can't even imagine the sounds and sights and the energy. And yeah, I can always say, like, if you saw Deer Hunter when Robert De Niro goes back to Saigon, you know, and it's like just that motor, little motorcycles driving by and it's a dirt road. The main street is a dirt road. And this was your first time in the Philippines? In the Philippines. Yeah. It's stationed there. And my buddy says to me, he says, all right, listen, when you go into these bars, you got to act like you've done it before. Oh, come on. I grew up in Boston. I run the streets. I was in the subways. Of course I can. I walk in the first bar I walk into, The Roxy. It's called The Roxy, right? And I just, first thing you see is a bar, a U -shaped bar, right? Big U -shaped bar. The music is just cranking. I think it was like Motley Crue or something just cranking. And right in the middle of that, running right down the center of that Horseshoe bar was a stage and there had to be 15 girls up there just dancing. Like go -go girls type thing. Uh -huh. In bikinis. I was like, what the fuck? Oh, shit. And then I order a beer and the bartender is this Filipino girl. She looks, she says, first thing she says to me, you cherry boy. Cherry boy. Meaning I'm new. And I said, I looked at my buddy. I said, how does she know? He says, it's in your eyes. You're just staring around. They see it in your eyes. Yeah. They know that look. And the rest, as they say, is history.

The KLFB Studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music. Enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Young Amanda, my beautiful little daughter, is, well, she's up in Tallahassee now, back at FSU, and she's riding out of storm. She's riding the storm out. The hurricane went by there. So I think she's okay. I think she's okay. You know, everybody gets all worried. College kids and hurricanes, it's like Christmas and candy canes. They love it. I don't care. They can act all scared. I have no delusions. It was a hurricane party or three going on. No doubt. School was canceled Friday and Monday, you know, for the rest of the week, and then Monday is no. Oh, I'm scared. And then they hang up the phone, it's like, shots, shots. Anyway, welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. You know the name of it. I'm not going to say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, X, formerly known as Twitter, Twitch, Dlive, and I don't know how many other live platforms we're on right now. And so this week we're going to talk about the year 1985 in music. But before we do that, this podcast is sponsored by Hot Jaws Hot Sauce. It's a small batch, handmade hot sauce, and it's really good. It's really good. You can find it at hotjaws .store. Yeah, trust me, that last hot sauce place didn't send me anything. Hot Jaws. And why do I always get hot sauce sponsors? That's a strange thing, but they sent me this jalapeno pineapple. Oh, good lord. Put that on a slice of pepperoni pizza. As my father, my 89 -year -old father says, you'd think you'd died and gone to heaven. So he's not Jewish, so I don't know if they say that. Anyway, again, speaking of pepperoni pizza, it's Mark Smith from the Music Relish Show. Pepperoni porcupine pizza, how you doing? And then speaking of habanero pineapple, it's Luke Galeccio from the Music Relish Show. Greetings. All right. He's doing the Ed McMahon tonight. So you are correct, sir. Look at the last couple of weeks, last month, Lou's been in Paris, right? Actually, it's in the south of France. I have a summer place there. Yeah, and now he's in some hostel in Ireland with the quilt over the back of the couch. He's just touring Europe, and he's bringing all his podcast equipment with him. You guys want to keep it down back there? That's right, you hostel people. Are you hostel bums? I'm a hostel. Don't you think the people that live in hostels and travel, they're kind of like hobos? Yeah, more like a hobo, you're right. I'm traveling Europe. No, you're a fucking hobo. You do have a debit card. In another country.

A highlight from Ep. 114 - Talking About The Music And Movies Of 1991
"Well, here we are, episode 114. And on this episode, we're going to talk about the year 1991. It was actually a pretty amazing year for music. 90s are kind of funny. I guess every decade is kind of funny. The 90s had a, it was a shift, a big shift at the beginning, so we're going to talk about that. I have Mark Smith and Luke Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. Jack is still on the road. So sit back, relax, and enjoy our episode on 1991. I was in the Air Force back then, stationed in Sacramento, and it was hot this time of year. Ah, anyway. The KOFB Studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now let's talk music. Enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction. As usual, young Amanda is officially back up at FSU, starting her second year of college, working toward that. What is she taking? I think she's going for criminal justice or in psychology, and she wants to miss all that. She's going to be a good federal agent. I've told her that since she was seven. She's going to do good. So yeah, so here we are. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. You know the name of this podcast, so I'm not going to say it. And yeah, so tonight we're going to talk about 1991. Yeah, 1991 was an interesting year. The 90s are kind of forgotten in a lot of ways as far as music goes. The hip -hop of the early 90s was really good. It was really good. That was a transition for that genre of music. And as I said in the intro, I was stationed in Sacramento, California, Mather Air Force Base, Security Police K -9, military working dog handler, working a drug slash patrol dog, which means attack dog. And you know who wasn't in the Air Force serving their country? In 1991, Mark Smith. Four years out of high school. And Lou Colicchio. They weren't serving their country. I'm a lover, not a fighter. Gentlemen, welcome back to the show. Oh, good evening. Yes, yes. How's everything going? How's the music relish show going? You take it, Lou. Okay, then. Technical issues last time. Okay. I think they've been resolved. All right. I think they've been resolved. Now, let me ask you again. How long have you guys been doing this? Two years. It was two years in, what, I think February. Two years. Okay. So you started in 2021? No, no. Two years, like in October, November. We started in November, I think. Of 2021? I believe so, yeah. Oh, okay. All right. So I was, let's see, I was a bunch of episodes in, in the quality stuff. Oh, I go back and listen to some of those older ones. I'm like, oh, Jesus. Now, I know, I know. It's not as bad as yours were with the phone calls, but your dedication is fucking just top notch. The dedication that you guys had to doing it over the phone is just amazing. Hours. Hours. I hate talking on the phone, too. I hate it. But, you know, but talking to Mark Smith and Perry Dillard on the phone about music has been nothing but a pure joy. That's not true either. That's not true. Oh, okay. Oh, no, no, no. I tried to run with that one, but okay, we'll let it die. Our ventures in podcasting have been great. It's such a great, it's a great medium, you know. It really is. Yeah, it is. It really is. I was looking at a, so I use Buzzsprout to upload to all the podcast platforms and you get these people that come on and they're new, right? And so I've been doing this since, I think, 2019, 2020, 2020. And they're all like, oh, I'm putting out my podcast, but I'm not getting any listeners and, you know, I'm not getting any downloads. And, you know, the podcast world has become saturated and that's fine. That's fine. Just like anything. And it's a great medium for people to listen to. It's an alternative to the radio, right? Yeah. I think it's a replacement for talk radio in a lot of ways. It is. Yeah. And I kind of, I don't respond often to these because you start seeing the same things over and over. But I told this guy, I said, expectations set the table for how you're going to handle your podcast. I said it sets the expectation, you know, expectations set the table for how you're going to deal with it. Now you have to either go into it knowing you love doing it, you're going to keep doing it. And the money will come or you're going to set yourself up for a problem.
A highlight from Ep. 113 - Talking Late Night Concert TV Shows, Top 5 Songs That Define The 80's And More
"Well, here we are. Episode 113, 113. Nothing unlucky about this show. It's a good one. I got the Wrecking Two. Lou Colicchio, Mark Smith from the Music Relish Show. We're going to...ah! I'm not even...you know what, usually I edit this. Forget it. No. We're going to talk about late night concert shows. Old school late night concert shows. Wasn't a lot of them, but it should be a good conversation. We're each going to give a list of our five, what we think, 80's songs that defined 80's music. You'll see what we mean. And we got some other things in store. A video of the week. It's becoming a little mixed bag every edited show, as you just heard from the intro. All right. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. You know the name of it. I'm not going to say it. Welcome to the podcast. We're streaming live right now over YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Dlive, a whole bunch of different places, as usual. Or it's not Twitter, it's X. As you see, I'm wearing the lucha libre or the luchador mask. Yeah. Old Mr. X. He had his own YouTube channel for a little while. I didn't know those videos got deleted. Anyways. So yeah, I'm here right now. I got the Wrecking Two in the green room where we had a good show going tonight. And there's no way I'm wearing this luchador mask the whole show. I'm already sweating. I'm already sweating. Yeah. Hi, Patty. Yeah. She's like, what are you wearing in your face? It's luchador. But I got the, it's a wrestling mask, right? I got the wrestling mask on. And I have my glasses on over it. How intimidating is that? But if I take them off, it looks better. But what I see isn't better, if you know what I mean. It's kind of like the vanity of looking. Yeah. I got the wrestling mask on, but I can't see shit. I'm squinting. Right now I'm squinting for all you podcast listeners. I can't see. I got to see a little bit. Yeah. I read Patty's comment when she came in because I had my glasses on. So I don't know. I don't know which way to go. You know who I'm going to ask? Mark Smith for the Music Relo Show That's what your mouth looks like. That's exactly what your mouth looks like. Enough of that. You can't see my mouth like a ventriloquist. And I think we're supposed to tag team wrestle you now, right? Bring it on. We got a handicap match tonight. We got a handicap match tonight on the music. It's so hot in here. My brain is heating up. Don't tell Perry I said that by the way. Don't tell Perry I made that mistake.
Typhoon Mawar batters Guam, and 'what used to be a jungle looks like toothpicks'
"Typhoon mawar has battered the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, leaving much of the island without power and utilities. As lightning flashed across one's night sky, heavy rain pummeled cars outside residents homes. In a video posted on social media, a sheath of metal ripped from a roof by the typhoon could be seen flying around in the wind. Meteorologists Landon eyelets described the scene Guam residents were waking up to after typhoon moi's and welcome visits. We're looking at our door and what used to be a jungle looks like toothpicks. It looks like a scene from the movie twister with trees just thrashed apart. Guam governor Lou Leon Guerrero declared the all clear. We have weathered the storm the worst has gone by. She warned, however, more strong winds would follow, I am Karen Chammas
Dick Morris Reveals the Looming Threat to ALL Fox News Hosts
"News on the airplane show. The idea that there is breaking news on the aircraft show is itself breaking news, because we don't do breaking news. But today, just now, as dick Morris entered the studio, he told me the shocking news that Tucker Carlson was fired from Fox News and I thought, dick, let's get on the air immediately and discuss this. So you just mentioned that there it's not just that Tucker has been fired, but there's the threat to I would assume Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham most prominently that if they don't play ball, they will be fired or is it already too late that they will be fired? I'm not going to mention names to get into that. They did, I believe, fire at Dobbs, Lou Dobbs, and there has been speculation about various other Fox figures. But no, no, Lou Dobbs was fired way back. And it was despicable, but I don't want to get into who might be fired or might not. But I do. Go ahead, go ahead. This represents a deliberate turn to the left on Murdoch's part. And the important point here is for the elections. Trump now has the only conservative news network that is backing Trump that really now has a monopoly on that franchise is now newsmax. I appear there all the time. So I hope this is not a conflict of interest. But I believe that this gives Trump a consistency on the right and the ability to access all of the networks on the right. It gives viewers a clear choice whether the establishment be it CNBC, CNN, or Fox News, or a conservative outlet newsmax. And I think that that's an enormous advantage for Trump.
The Language of Evangelicalism
"John, I think you'll probably know. I'm an evangelical Roman Catholic Presbyterian. That means I go to mass on Saturday night and I go to my Presbyterian Church on Sunday, one river two banks, but I speak evangelical very well. Rick Warren and Greg Laurie are friends, Al Muller is a weekly conversationalist with me. I know, you know, John piper I read desiring God years ago. I know most of the stuff you talk about. I've got to tell you at the beginning. I have never heard of CJ Mahoney or Lou engel until I read your book. Never heard and I've been covering religion since 1992. So first question, do you think your perspective in testimony might be jaded by that particular covenant life church experience and these particular pastures? Well, I guess, can I ask you what you mean by jaded, just that my experience might not reflect a more mainstream experience? Is that what you're kind of? Yeah, I think mainstream evangelicalism is not anti intellectual at all. But then again, I've had doctor Mark Roberts as a pastor for 25 years. He got his undergrad and PhD from Harvard. Doctor Larry is my current pastor in oldtown is a phenomenal scholar and preacher and archbishop who is listening right now in the author of three books is an intellectual giant in the Catholic world and I've written three books on evangelicalism and this, I just think testimony is a 100% accurate about 1% of the church. How's that sound? Yeah, I think my dad raised a similar objection. When I talked to him about the book, he does not feel like a lot of evangelical culture is anti intellectual. And I think it's a totally fair question to raise. I do think that even if you haven't heard of CJ Mahaney or Lou angle, you know, I did some reporting recently. Let me deal with CJ first. CJ is not a figure on the same level as somebody like Al molar. But until about, you know, 7, 9, ten years ago, he was of a similar stature to Al mohler, if not as nationally known. So never quite got to that level, but was kind of on his way there was working with Mueller quite closely in a group of other ministers who were organizing a conference every year called. I think together for the gospel. Danny Louisville.
What We Learned From the Latest Fox News-Dominion Case Filing
"Uncovered covers new ground. And it does so. There's only one anonymous source that I would call from the book, Steve, which is the NBC News executive who wants to blast Fox and go on the record with you to do so. I think you only quoted one anonymous source. I've got to tell you getting bob ley to talk to you this way. Getting all these people to talk to Tucker, it's not going to help them in the dominion news case. I was talking with Chris Christie earlier today about the dominion news case. You obviously went to press before that happened. Does it change your opinion of anything since those text messages came out? No, not necessarily. I mean, I think that there is it's an interesting story. I think anytime you can read the text messages of people in power, it gets juicy. And so I think what's interesting about the dominion case is that frankly, in the original filing, 400 pages by dominion, 200 or so pages where Lou Dobbs, tweets, and Instagram posts at Facebook posts, Lou Dobbs, more than perhaps anyone was the driving force of the dominion lawsuit and of the kraken from Sidney Powell and Lou Dobbs was the guy who was fired immediately after the lawsuit was put out. So I think that's an interesting note. But I think it does also reveal that it was a really perilous time in November 2020. And I don't get too much into that in the book, but I do think that there was a real moment. I wrote about in my newsletter that I kind of described this blood in the water where Trump is spinning these lies and we see in the text messages, people like Tucker talking about the fact that Trump is spewing this and is hurting the people that are both fans of Trump and fans of Fox News
Rupert Murdoch Admits Fox News Hosts Endorsed Election Lies
"Promised. I want to get to this Fox News report president Trump is raging mad earlier today, the president put out a statement. Rupert Murdoch, by the way, is now admitting under oath in this dominion lawsuit that Fox News channel host promoted election lies. This is not Todd stern saying this, this is the official court documents. By the way, Rupert Murdoch is the owner of Fox News channel. I'm not putting words in his mouth. But Rupert Murdoch testified under oath that Fox News promoted election lies on air, despite plenty of evidence revealing that many hosts privately knew the claims made by then president Trump and his surrogates to be false. This is from mediaite, stunning new details emerged and more court documents released Monday in the dominion voting systems defamation lawsuit against Fox. Let me stop right here for a moment. If all of this is accurate and we have no reason to believe it is not accurate, Fox News is in a world of hurt because they are facing $1.6 billion in fines and penalties if they lose this lawsuit and it does not look good. Murdoch admitted in a deposition last month that false election claims were promoted by top host at the cable news network, quote they endorsed. I would have liked us to be stronger in denouncing it in hindsight. Murdoch said, I think so, when asked if host jeanine pirro endorsed the claims, he said Lou Dobbs endorsed the claims a lot and Sean Hannity did so a bit.
"lou" Discussed on Frank Michael Smith Show
"And I find that very interesting. Well, yeah, why would they say no? Because they he's running it like it's because I think shop and safe. I think they know that he would come in and spend the money. And they want the pirates, you know, they feed off the pirates thinking. Gotta think about that. No. That's fine. That's not good for business. The pirate strategy is not good for the other owners. The pirates are sucking up. The luxury tax money from the Yankees. Correct. But part develop people, such as Brian Reynolds and Ben are, for example, trade them to the Dodgers to the angels to the Yankees. I don't think so. I think the MLB would rather see the pirates spend money for sure. It's a better product. I think everyone wins. When there's parody like this I know, I know I'm going to win when they spend money because I'm going to be happy to watch them. Give me your other pirates insider info. Can we do? We have some insider info. I think it's very interesting. So there was a lot of speculation that the pirates were going to sign Andrew McCutchen this year. And kind of like his swan song, coming back to the pitch. The reason that they didn't sign it was based on the fact that if management management believed that if he came back and had its subpar year that it would tarnish his legacy in Pittsburgh and I just can't believe it. I'm trying to think if there's another example where this happened. Oh, Harrison came back. That's probably a pretty good one. You need to do great. Well, he actually left. No one cared. It didn't tarnish his legacy. You're right about that. One of the Patriots tarnished his legacy yeah, right. But. But anyway, when he came back, everyone was cool. But the reason that they used that as an excuse not to sign him, I think it was crazy. He makes no sense. All right, let's just let him play Milwaukee. Yeah, right, right. And let him hit it with that's better. That one Sunday, he hit like 5 RBS against us. He could still play. It's unbelievable. I think right now what they need the most is that veteran leadership. And they don't have that. Why do we have why do we have such an affinity for overweight fielders? Is it unbelievable? Or not field is batters. Why do we just sign the fattest guys this year without the strategy? Do you know what? I can not believe listen, do you want to sign a big guy to hit the ball? I get it. I like Daniel vauban. He tries hard. In Yoshi, they're bad in the leadoff. I've never seen a guy like that by leader. Frank, I bet a leadoff every time you know I bad Alito. This dude is 9000 pounds. He's playing Leo. I've never seen a baseball strategy. I think it's like the analytics nerds just like going way over the top. See, I think analytics has analytics it has to be that as almost ruined baseball to an extent. Yeah, I knew you were going to say the shift, wasn't there part of the new CBA, going to say you can't shift anymore. So next year. That's okay they agree that next year. You can not, so baseball. You have two infielders on both sides of second base. First and second, third and short. That is actually going to be a rule next year. You are not allowed to move a third person past second.
"lou" Discussed on Frank Michael Smith Show
"All right, Fred Michael Smith, we're back. A long time coming. Lou curcio in the studio. What up, Lou? What's up, buddy? Dude, I'm pumped to be here, man. I've been listening to the pods for a while. Always ask you, you try to be a part of this. I love it. What's it been like a year that we've tried to cook something up? Well, when did you come back to town? October. Yeah. I mean, even before that, I remember texting me being like, yo, dude, I can't believe you're in LA and I'm listening to your Pittsburgh. Like, crazy stuff. Yeah, we gotta get one. This is the Pittsburgh pod. We're gonna touch in all the teams. But before we get to the teams, we should talk about the moment that actually spurred this. Lou hit a gigantic bet. And no one really wants to hear about other people's bets, but this is a big one. Tell us what you just hit on one of the gambling sites. So Friday night was game 6, Boston, Miami, and we got some information across the wire, Jimmy Butler 35 points Jimmy Butler three threes, Miami money line. So it was what to win what? It was a $100 to win 13,300. And it only had three legs. I only had three legs. The biggest see the biggest thing was Miami was an 8 point dog. So that money line coming back really spurred the what, they were plus like 400 or something but yes. Okay, so that was the big one. And then butler's three threes were big because he isn't shoot many threes. And he ended up with how many threes. I think he ended up with four, actually. That is a lot of threes for Jimmy. That's a ton, man. Yeah. So that's a little closer to your mic, just a tad bit closer. That's a lot of threes for Jimmy. And then the other leg was 35 points. What are you going to do with the cash? Well, we're going to go to Disney World. I got a good Disney World. You know what? I'm trying to be smart with them, man. Here's how it all started with. Put it all in crypto. Be very smart. Right, exactly. Right. Like two years ago, it all started when fans started releasing you could bet on the touchdown scores. That's really what changed the game for me. And I totally got off the over unders in the game lines and the money lines and just pet touched on scores. And I hit a couple back then and that's just like really what I enjoy doing. So we're going to save some money for NFL. Put a little sprinkle a little in our sponsor, underdog fantasy, sponsor the show. Well, is that who does it now? Underdog is actually great because they have pick them on there..

Their future profitability got just destroyed thanks to the bureaucrats and medicare who decided that the reimbursement was just wrong. They shouldn't be getting three hundred dollars per unit they should be getting one hundred dollars per unit and that just crushed this company.

"Goals. So i thought this is really cool. By the way you can designate goals on your website to track user adoption by just pointing and clicking an element to tag it as a goal you can now see how many people are reaching the school or that aha moment and how long. It's taking them to get there. So the best part about lou especially for me was you can start for free so you can literally go create a free account right now and get moving so with the free with the free plan. You can build in launch to announcements and one tour with no time limit or credit card acquired. Which is another thing. That's important for me. And if you want to see it in action good no no problem dot com to see liu live you can try it out and email support at l. o. u. a. s. i s. t. dot com if you email them and c. n. p. you get twenty percents off any pay plan and it's honestly a really great deal and i'm going to be personally implementing it into no problems site and like i mentioned earlier chewy eyesight because based on our customer discovery closet. We've had thus far for chewy. It's become extremely clear that whenever we just throw people in. It's kind of difficult for them to figure out where and how to maneuver within the application. So after i got off the call blue team it became extremely clear that we could use allude to help. Guide them exactly where we want them to go so that way they can't have that aha moment faster which might encourage them to pay faster or actually just use the toll on a on a frequent basis which is ultimately the goal of any sass or digital product right. So i wanna thank.

"I mean if davis is never gonna fight live on showtime or that. Were television again. And he's only going to be on pay per view that he's going to generate a hell of a lot of money doing two three four even four five hundred thousand buys but it's not crossing you over like You know jarvis or lebron james or a little tiny or star in a major sport. That's being seen regularly in front of an audience. Potential audience of one hundred million people or hundreds of million people right. I agree with you there. One thing about davis what reason i would probably take ryan. I would take ryan over anybody in that group. Oliva draws massive crowds in multiple cities. He is a bona fide superstar. But i question overall talent. And i do it because i don't believe that the people that handled your germont davis really believe it him. I've said that like if they believed in davis who is not some twenty one or twenty two year old. He's twenty six and twenty. Seven in november is strongly odd robot. Wait you can finish. Let's jump into seconds but this is my point. Twenty six now twenty seven november with the opportunity if he wanted to to fight taffy molo pence for the unified or undisputed championship. Whatever you wanna call it to fight josh taylor at one forty for the unified or undisputed championship. He has both those opportunities basically in front of him and his team does not want to do instead. You and i both know this is true lou. He's gonna fight somebody we've probably never heard of or he's going to be a big favourite against sometime in october or november. That tells me that his team does not believe. He has the talent of these other fighters. I'm going to tell you that. I have as many questions about how ryan performs at the top level for haney performs at the top level As i do about davis. I'm also going to tell you i'm going to disagree with you on that one because i'm not going to say they don't believe in him. I'm going to say they believe that. The almighty fucking dollars. That's what they believe it. And here's what they believe it. Risk reward If they could keep letting him fight small guys and he's generating multi millions of dollars between the gate and the pay per view performance..

"I want to move to something different tap into your knowledge as a former television executive. It appears according to a couple of reports that canelo alvarez is going to fight kayla plant on pay per view. It'll be canals. First appearance on pay per view since his fight against gennady. Google often back in two thousand eighteen back. Then lou canelo and goffin were doing a million plus pay per view buys. Since then we have seen the pay-per-view market start to disintegrate. One of the biggest fights of the year earliest a year ago was tyson. Fury against the onta- wilder. It had the full force of espn and fox behind it and it could not do a million pay per view buys now you can say their reasons for that. Theory is from the uk wilder while being a tremendous power. Puncher was not incredibly well known in the united states but the numbers are the numbers. I'm wondering how. Do you think a cannella alvarez return to pay per view is going to do nine easy question to answer okay and one of the other things you have to consider is a lot you know. I love all the numbers that get put out by different writers that get their information from different people. You read one place. That event did eight hundred thousand and you read from another writer at that six hundred thousand and then look. I've been in the pay per view. But i was one of the innovators founders of business said abraham mark cafet- myself greenberg wrote the the inception pay per view. Everyone's always fudge the numbers a little bit. But now there's wholesale fudging the numbers and most lupu. I'll let you continue. I'll let you continue. But you like if hbo which is a publicly traded company if hbo puts out a number it has to be true right like if they put their name on a press release doesn't have to be true. I mean they can't but can they released like it ally and fudge or two different thing medically like the numbers would have to wear your revenue stress. Your sports right abroad like you're in arenas all the time they're owned by major corporations right you've been in rooms. And they announced the attendance in the room. And you know that the numbers are fudged and the same thing is true on pay per view buys and right now gook even count streaming by like there's no resource where you can go and find out what the streaming numbers are. There's no way oppressed guy could be certain of anything he's reporting about total pay per view at streaming boss. Okay start with that. Then there's wholesale theft. I mean i i mean i've been going through so might look. Look it on my twitter timeline and seeing guy stealing feeds and having them up on twitter where you could see that nine nine. Nine thousand people are watching. It's one of the reasons thrillers. Suit all those people after the jake bullfight. And you know so this wholesale theft right on top of it. Caleb plant is is excellent fighter..

Welcome back to another episode of boxing with chris. Mannix part of the volume sports podcast network. Pretty quiet weekend in boxing so why not bring in one of the least quiet people. In all of boxing. Lou dibella longtime boxing promoter boxing broadcaster boxing television producer. He joins me and we talk about all the big picture topics in boxing from judging two fighters getting vaccinated to the taffy. Molo pez george campus. Fight we get into the various broadcast networks.

Podcasts post a comment leave a rating. It's simple it's easy. It's free is the best way to make sure that we keep doing this podcast week after week. That's it all right onto the show. Slow weekend in boxing. We were supposed to have the deontay wilder tyson fury three showdown in las vegas. That was scrapped weeks ago. Of course because tyson theory came down with kobe. Nineteen there's an interesting fight on saturday with joe joyce heavyweight contender. He's back in action. But it's relatively quiet in the world of boxing. So i figured i'd tackle some big picture. Topics here on this podcast. Do better to tackle them with. But one of my favorite podcasts guests guy that gets irrationally angry for absolutely no reason who makes phone calls to reporters the middle of the night. S- just loves and hates boxing. In equal measure. The great lou dibella president of dibella entertainment. What's up blue. It's a little bit of a double edged sword row because you guys call me in the middle of night regularly. I that's fair but there's equal amounts coming out coming out the going in. I mean there. There are fewer fewer ways in boxing. Entertain yourself taking advantage of the few left. That's that's fair. all right lou. I wanna talk to tackle a few subjects here. I wanna go back to this past weekend because this is still newsy. It's it's i'll explain why it's newsy in a minute. Still we had a good fight between branka stagno and your malchow low in texas costano charles over the undisputed one hundred fifty four pound championship of back and forth type flight that it looked like estonia was controlling the early rounds. Charlotte made a late surge in the final three. It ended in a draw. Which would have been okay. I guess except for the one scorecard submitted by nelson vasquez what wants seventeen one. Eleven in layman's terms. He added nine rounds to three in favor of djamil. Charlie which is absolutely absurd as a scorecard up. Let's get your reaction..
"lou" Discussed on WTMJ 620
"Lou Williams lob it to Capella put it in, and he anuses down. That's what a hyper extended knee sounds like on the radio is called by Bucks radio Network play by play Man, Ted Davis last night in Atlanta. I don't know what to say. I don't know what to say. I just saw it again. I don't know what to say. Oh, my hyper extended knee can damage ligaments, cartilage and other stabilizing structures in the knee. Doctor LBJ Deaconess of physical Therapist at Marquette University Sports Rehab Clinic, and he was on today's TMJ four earlier today. What did you see in that video of the honest looking at that video to sustain what you call hyperextension injury and When I look at it closely, it looks like I think it's capella that bumps into his knee, which forces a little bit more of what you call the hyperextension. So for many people who don't know Typically you get to about zero degrees of extension, Janice. His knee basically went about 30 degrees into the extended position, so he went past zero degrees of extension into about 15 to 30 degrees of hyperextension. So in a general sense when you look at a hyperextension like that, is that a long term problem or is this something arrest for a few days can improve. You know, it can vary because there's a lot of different structures in the need right. And so you know, your best case scenario is because of the hyperextension injury may be honest, is sustained more of a bone bruise at the front part of his knee. But you have significant ligaments that are between the joint. You're talking about your a C l your PCL, and then you also have ligaments on the outside of the joint last year l C L and M c o And so a significant sprain, right? We categorize he sprains and grades, grades. 1 to 3, Um, could put you on us out for a significant amount of time. You're great. One springs, you typically will see, uh, maybe between 1 to 3 weeks. Grade two. You're looking 3 to 6. Uh, a very great tools. You're looking six weeks to longer. So, um, that's kind of your worst case scenario. Dr. Deacon, There are some injuries that are the type that if you can tolerate the pain, you can play through it, regardless of how effective you maybe there are others that you risk long term damage. If you do go out there. Is there any diagnosis? Depending on the scans today that could see Yannis out there still and just try to give it a go. Yeah, you know, you're looking at a great one, Maybe strain of some of the muscles around the knee. Um, maybe, you know, not If he sustained a grade one explain to any of his ligaments. More than likely. He's probably not going to go out right away, because, um, you will have some swelling around the knee and the effect of having swelling around the knee. Is that The swelling itself makes it a little bit more challenging for your muscles to recruit and fire as readily as they should. So when you think about a sport like basketball, where you have to have really precise reflexes and react to the various conditions changing around you the risk is you put a player out there too early and because he's not able to probably respond to you know someone coming at them or someone Jumping around him. He made sustained a further injury to that. So if he hasn't, um, torn anything significantly, that's what you were hoping you don't do by putting it out there, too early Doctor LBJ Deacon, physical therapist at Marquette University Sports Rehab Clinic, speaking with Vince for Toronto and Susan Kim and TMJ four today earlier this morning, Dr Deacon is not helping. I guess he's giving his honest medical opinion, which is far better than any of us can bring to the table. But man if you didn't spend the last four minutes cringing Listening to that. That does not sound good. Yeah, these aren't supposed to bend that way. And if 30 degrees if you've ever had a knee injury, anything of involving ligaments currently to anything like that. You know what He's talking about there, and you don't bounce back right away. In most cases, you just don't they're swelling. It's going to limit your your mobility. Your flexibility. Uh, and like Vince has there too. I mean anything you do in a destabilized the only threatens to do more damage further because a stretch ligament isn't doing its job. It's giving more than it should not. And again. I'm not a doctor. I'm just speaking from my own expel you had two new means that before that I totally reconstructed me with with ligaments that I blew out doing stupid things. Well, that's an interesting Risk analysis. The Bucks might have to go through right, like okay. What if the ligaments are intact? And it's just a great one or two knees spring? Do you risk bringing him back to chase down an NBA championship, knowing that the re injury risk is higher, and you are taking your face of your franchise, the guy that you just paid a quarter billion dollars to and risking A further detriment to him over the course of his career, not just next season, but beyond that, as well, who who makes that decision and nobody. I mean, we see what we see from the honest and everything would indicate this is together. It's going to want to play no matter what if that, if you do, Yeah, Scotch tape that need to is this thighbone try to get out there last night. Yeah, and, um sometimes the team and the trainers and the doctors have to protect the player from themselves. I think that's going to be the situation here and we'll just see how long we've got No answers. We got to wait until the defective part. 7 56. WTMJ time now for business headlines.
