"You're in lexington. How's everything hanging it. It's beautiful it's awesome. Looks looks a little different. After they took down the the the rain the wrestling ring the barricades and everybody left. But it's a beautiful day. That was a heck of a scene there. Saturday drew you. Had you had football. You had wrestling. You had a group of people that don't normally come to the bar that were screaming shannon and telling him he was off what was apparently white. Decide oh yeah. I slept good sunday night. We put in a good fourteen hour. Ks bar shift starting with the game show which was surreal scene. And then come back from the football game and there'd be a what looked like wrestlemainia in the parking lot. It was a wild and fun day. Well it was a lot of fun and of course kentucky gets the victory and we're gonna talk about a lot of stuff to get to. I do want to start by saying the reason i met. My house is a one piece of news. That's a little bit of a bummer. Which is i actually tested positive for covert this weekend Not news. I want a report but something that did happen. If for those of you that listen to the pre and post game show you know. I ended up. I didn't. I started not feeling well kind of friday afternoon and so i didn't go on saturday and then ended up getting tested later. It's you know it stinks. But i actually have very minor symptoms. I feel better every day. Felt not great. Friday but then have slowly been better since but ryan you know. I saw the newspaper today. Like the chances of getting a breakthrough infection are like one in five thousand a day or something like that. So i guess i must just be one of the lucky ones as i. Sit here quarantined at my house. Will you know you're not talked every day on the phone and i keep telling you you sound nasal you sound like you have a head cold. You said that shave enlist lifts you going. Hey glad you're okay. Hope everything the first thing. We found nasal crop man. Which rush ryan you say that to me every day how about a little positive uplifting this what i was getting to you sound better today the with a guy who was going to say that before that i was you. Do you sound much better today than you had the last couple of days. Even on the pre-game show saturday morning. Sound better well. I appreciate it and you know the worst part drew is actually just being quarantined at my house. I'm not sure i've ever been so bored that this long weekend. Thank goodness there was football and all the time but you know you don't realize how much you want to leave your house 'til you literally can't leave your house like i mean you know i for the first time ever shannon got groceries delivered. I didn't even know that was the thing that people could do. Not know about that. I i mean i don't know i think i just missed that. Update in the world's do normally go grocery shopping yourself normally f groceries. How do they have. Do you eat out every mill. You have to judge me question. I mean that's one way that it. Yes but you know they delivered. Drew gripes which was like an hour. After i ordered all this food was here. I'm never walking in a grocery store again. Not that i had in a long time. But now i'm definitely not well. You just turned into the home chef over there. i was just bombed. Your timing was a little unfortunate with being the beginning of the football season but it sounds like you're you're doing well over there and there's there's no shortage of candles if you need to test yourself. I don't know where you are on that. That's the problem you see. My my symptoms have been a had a little bit of a cold. All of that's gotten better but the biggest symptom is. I lost my sense of smell. And like i have all these candles everywhere and like i just i love to light them and smell them and now i mean i might as well light them. It could be a candle. There's no way for me to now. You have the most sensitive nose of anybody. I've ever met so if you can't smell anything then you know you something wrong. If only you had a book or two you could read. I've read two books. I've already read shannon. I've gone through to chris. Jericho biographies still. Apparently there's no there were four no crazy. No more and i've read to already. I don't know if i'm going to keep going or not. But i've read read too so i'm doing when i can. I had a lot of people ryan say. Hey will cook for you. And that's that he thought i was in laxative. When i say i've been louisville so far no one the cooking has gone away so you know i'm still getting a lot of bring some chicken noodle soup if you like that you know some campbell's you just it right into the microwave. That's a little bit of cooking. But anyway so you know just the reason i wanted to bring that up is to say everybody stay vigilant. I mean even when you're vaccinated like me you can end up Getting what they call. I guess a breakthrough infection and so you need to be careful an. I hated missing saturday ryan. I mean saturday was such a great day. Football team played. Well you know obviously wrestling and the signing i really you know broke my heart not to be there but was ended up being the right choice but it was a great day. Let's start with the game. I mean i think the the story line for kentucky fans is one thing we threw the ball and it worked and we threw the ball and we looked like an offense that we haven't looked like in fifteen years twenty years. It was so exciting right. How excited were you watch it. It was it was fun just as a fan. You're right we haven't seen something like that in a long long time. And when you're when you're throwing downfield that like that i mean it. Just it just makes the game more exciting more entertaining and you've got three different. Receivers caught a pass a fifty yards or more. I mean this is what we've been waiting on something like this and on the other side. The defense was playing lights out. So if you were. Uk football fan. And you didn't get excited watching that game. Well then. Something's wrong with you because this team is for real you know in some of the statistics drew were unbelievable. I like you get two guys with over one hundred yards receiving. We haven't had that. And i think seven years. You get Chris rodriguez one hundred. Twenty five yards rushing. We hold a team under one hundred yards of offense for the first time in twenty five years to put all that together in one game. You don't wanna get overly excited but it's hard not to definitely and the offense wasn't perfect. There's still plenty to clean up. We saw his as pass. You know ali probably could caught it bad throw ends up being an interception but just showing that downfield through it and like you said having two guys to have one hundred yards receiving. It's the first time since matt roark and laura king. That's how long it's been since two receivers have had one hundred yards back in twenty eleven so just the fact that they were able to show so much. We've heard all summer and fall camp that it that it exists to actually see that downfield threat there and robinson's everything that he was hyped up to.

The potato bun did exactly what was supposed to do health things together his great without being distracting that i will. I will say they really love pickles like there are multiple of these reviews. Were there like act. Could use more pickles The pickles saved this one. They're like the pickles saved the day in the end. The sandwich really only lose marks because not enough pickles are involved and that's to their consensus on other ones.

The game came in eight which you would expect chili's to be able to put something together at a higher price point but you don't not low you know. Yeah i feel like you can only class up a fried chicken sandwich so much like going into like ridiculous luxury foods territory like if it's really about the frie- on it the batter using the pickles and the little sauce as think of chilies in a different category than popeye's hardee's k. For sure yeah yeah. North satires like chili's. I guess like they shouldn't even be here. They tried and it's really sad and we speak about it and then boston market on market is the last place flavorful. Pickles though yeah. They give them credit for flavorful pickles and the sandwich staying together a very low bar. Yeah that's like that's like some fuck that's like getting spielberg like watching like kindergartners smell. And just doing like there was like well. There was a camera that was recording bread. That was good for this and will leave it there. Otherwise total disaster. Laura king was the other big surprise man that it was so i don't know if you've seen the burger king chicken sandwich but it looks like a big piece of like general sows chicken like it. Looks like it's just a bit. Like dipped in glazed glazed chunky chicken. But they say it's good. The sauce is apparently more hot than sweet. All right well. I guess we'll we'll have it their way.

Socially like not to kill americans with the sandwich. It's so good that there's like i was gonna you can handle it but i always imagined with decisions. That chain restaurants make like that.

Tumult Disrupts Israeli Parliament as Netanyahu Era Ends
"Netanyahu served as israel's prime minister for the past twelve years the vote to replace him yesterday in the knesset was partisan as what we see in congress here in the. Us sixty is fifty nine. Nays with one person abstaining. Laura king is an la times global affairs correspondent. She's currently in israel. And was there for the knesset. Vote that saw netanyahu prime minister. Welcome to the times laura. Thank you described that final. Vote itself the scene. That happened during then afterwards. Well as long as the lead up to the vote. I think since the very last moment that something could go haywire for the new coalition and so the vote was about as close as it could be it was sixty to fifty nine with one abstention and so i think there was just an enormous insipid relief on the part of the new coalition. That was trying to ask prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu that they had actually pulled this off and i heard there was heckling there towards holly bennett. That new prime minister. Yes when he rose to speak there was a really concerted amount of heckling from the the allies of the outgoing prime minister barely letting him finish his sentences at times his kids who are in the gallery and they were making little heart symbols with their hands. I think trying to encourage their dad.

"There have been days where I was really angry with. God You think about all of the things that have to fall into place for a child to get batten disease and it can make you pretty angry that somebody you. I love ended up drawing that card. You've got like a little thirty second reading here that speaks to that Thanks on page two hundred one if you could it sure once several months before a friend asked me if I believe in God I believed I said but I was angry with him for for a long time. I had to search my soul. After Taylor's diagnosis I struggled with the concept of a world that includes batten disease. It didn't Happen overnight but somewhere along the way I don't quite remember when I had made my peace with God. I came to the realization that God doesn't inflict pain in an suffering rather he gives strength to overcome it. But if we want to survive we have to believe so. Walk your mother. There was anger along the way as well. There's still anger. I don't think that ever truly goes away. Just get some pushed out a little bit more by by other emotions and I will say the anger can be a really healthy emotion. Don't encourage anybody going through something difficult to lose that anger it. It helped us finding motor to is. It helped us push. I think a lot of far success. With Taylor's towel has been due to the anger. We felt associate back to the running for Matt as we move toward the end. The show here you've got One final read and I think it's sort of addictive of what you're going through. You're you're going to run this race no matter what. And you're going to do it with with the blindfold before you read the so you had a partner who ran with you talked about. I mean how do you. How do you run platform? I mean you're running not just walk. Yeah well we were just talking about faith and faith takes many forms and sometimes it's not faith in a higher power but faith in another human being and I had to have a lot a lot of faith than my friend. Andrew Swiss Dot who agreed to be my guide for that race Because when I close my eyes and said okay let's go run a nine minute mile. I was was putting putting my if not my life than at least my ankle ligaments and his hands and when Y'all practiced for the storm what you got hurt. There were times when it didn't go. Will you'd run into something And all you got between you and him as a court of some kind right we use the same bungee cord that Taylor used in the SAIMAA. Okay Nice and he's running beside you right that's right but then there's the scene at the end where you move on without him. Yes can you read the now. The world was dark and it was just Andrew and Stephen I an an invisible race core stretched out for miles ahead of us. Something strange happened then. After we broke away from the police officer in the truck we maintained a near record pace for me. Despite despite the blindfold I could feel my heart beating my chest and the muscles working in my legs and running was more effortless than it had ever been. I soared over speed bumps. A manhole manhole covers in zig-zagged through winding neighborhood roads. Later I learned from race photos that I'd even split photographers perched on tall step ladders. We left the walkers far behind and we were alone on the course for a long time before the race leader's caught up with us. I couldn't see but my ears told a story each time and we approach to cheer station set up at approximately one mile intervals along the course. People voiced encouragement as they would for any runner then. They went silent as they realized. I was blindfolded. Would I wish you could see the looks on their faces. Andrew Sat as we approached one station but I didn't need to see them. I could hear them clapping and jumping up and down and yelling encouragement. Long after we'd run past them it was my race. It was Taylor's race and nothing had ever felt so wonderful in my life. I'd run thirteen point one miles in and the dark but I didn't take a single step alone as Iran. The final stretch of thunder road led by the voice of a friend and the courage of the dying girl. I understood batten. Disease may have cast a dark shadow on our world. But I wasn't running away any longer. I was running into the light. I believed and I felt free. Laura when you cross the finish line did it feel more like a beginning. I think that's a great way to put it. I didn't know how the rest of that story would play out. But I knew the moment I crossed that finish line that somehow my life had changed and would never be the same and not just because the awareness we achieve that day would help propel Taylor's tell forward Not just because I had proven to myself that I could do something difficult physically but I think that the act of training for that race learning to become blind if you will and then doing it on a course course in real time in live action gave me the courage I needed to move forward whether or not that included saving. My sister's is life which I was I was under. I understood at that point was not going to happen. Who was waiting for you at the finish? Line my mom yeah. It was always hoping being that Taylor would be the first person I hugged and I've ironically. She was too sick to come to the race. That day She had taken such a a dive over the summer while I was training for this race but my mom was waiting for me at the finish line and as again another one of those moments that you remember Like like like yesterday I kind of melted into her arms and took the blindfold off and apparently there were a hundred teenagers around me cheering and screaming. They had chased me down the finish shoot There had been at our cheer station. Just a little ways back. But I didn't see or hear any of that. It was just this little insular world by mom and me Laura toward hard not to get emotional just sitting here hearing you talk about it But I want to thank you for being on the podcast day. Thank you for. Look what you're doing for those who can't do for themselves thank you it's You know it says it's a labor of love. It's it's never easy Z.. whether it's you're talking about the time of day takes out of the day or really more so just the emotional component but I i. I believe so strongly in our ability to make a better world for children like my sister but also anybody facing a rare devastating illness and I. I think that some things to happen for a reason and I can't I can't justify Taylor getting sick but I can justify being her sister Mr and saying what am I going to do with that information about your book going to be in our show notes but till people your website Well Taylor trailers still website.

"The December air and then they were running the fuzzy white ball of Taylor Santa Hat bouncing and time against the clear blue sky the throng of mostly taller runners quickly swallowed my sister. But I I tracked her in Mary. Kate by following the Fletcher team. Sign is a bobbed above the crowd soon. Even that became impossible so I drifted toward the finish area area and I waited. I talked my Toboggan down over my ears and I tried to stay warm fifty three minutes later I was still shivering in the cold old sunshine when Taylor crossed the finish line with her running buddy her fingers curled around the Bungee cord. Her face turned toward heaven. I'd spent so so much of the past two plus years focusing on the ugliness of batten disease but when Taylor Mary Kate cross the finish line together there was nothing ugly about at that moment whereas often felt only anger toward batten disease. My sister had beaten her demons by ignoring them by focusing not on what she'd lost but on what she could still do. She didn't waste her time worrying about what batten disease had taken from her. She paid it no mind and she ran a race before. The trees bloomed in the spring. I'd started running for her slower. That almost gives you chills to listen to that It must the very inspiring to watch her run that race. Sit there have been a handful of moments in my life. That were so profound that I feel like I was. It was out of body experience because today I can. I can reach back into my memories and I'm watching a movie. Reel of my own life and her crossing that finish line. That was one of those moments because here was a girl who is facing every obstacle. Could've said you know the stinks. I quit or I'm just not going to try. And she just she just did it and she wasn't looking for attention. She wasn't looking for acceptance. She did it because she wanted two and she reached out and grabbed it and she achieved all right when we come back after the break. We're going to talk about Some really positive posted news in the fight against batten disease. We're also going to read some more from from this inspiring memoir And we're going to have our riding segment when as well so stay with us. Hey listeners I'm here at the Robinson Spang the Carolina Room with Tom. Hatchet historian residents were talking about books available at the library including those available in this wonderful resource. Tom was his first book. You call the color of law and there's been a community wide read of that in Charlotte because of his so powerful by Richard Rothstein and it is the story of how the federal government local governments other agencies intentionally. conly helped segregate. Our city's not just at one moment but throughout the twentieth century. Some things are still going on today. Through a concept called redlining redlining ending was just a little piece of it. Marina was another piece all sorts of stories and the color of law is really a great place to to start. If you want to understand your city now shifting to books that would be the ROB spangled Carolina Room. You got another one here sorting out the New South City. Yeah this is one of my It's actually my neighbors. Who said about twenty years ago I wrote a book about how Charlotte got segregated? How we became a city of separate neighborhoods? It's black and white rich and poor and I'll a lot of Charlotte History Laid out in in detail I think it's a pretty readable look but peck I wrote it.

Thank you for your support. So we're backward lar- King Edward's author of run to the light Laura throughout this journey. You and your family were home with Taylor. The clock was ticking right. Yeah and you met your family met you talk about this in the book your family Connected with other parents of best disease. You go to these conferences so you would meet other parents and you you meet their children to write that are affected by the disease and one of the children you met a child named Daniel and while Taylor was still alive Daniel Mule passed away. That's correct and you wrote a letter. Yes jury that dear Daniel. There must be lots of mountains to SKI DOWN IN HEAVEN. Are they as beautiful as mammoth mountain as your racing down the slopes feel the wind in your hair in the sun on on your face but also the presence of your family and friends. They love you so much and they will always be by your side. You and my little sister Taylor have so much in common just like you wouldn't let batten disease. Stop you from going to the ocean and skiing Taylor hasn't let batten disease. Stop Her from going to school with her friends or singing and dancing. I'm afraid about in disease but Taylor helps me stay strong just like you help your mommy and daddy stay strong. It's it's easy to want to fight for fighters like you Taylor. You are my heroes. I write lots of stories about Taylor even wrote a story about you when you turned ten ten years old in January. I am so sorry we weren't able to find a cure for batten disease in time to save you Daniel. Everyone already misses you here but you are with God now and I know he will keep you safe. Your Life inspired so many people and I know it will help give me the strength. I need to keep fighting for Taylor and all of the other other children with batten disease. Your mom told me that after your surgery she felt like she was seeing that brilliant sunlight of hope for the first time. Even though your body he has left us now Daniel. Your spirit still burns brightly. I'm not surprised that someone who loves adventures as much as you would bring so much hope to so many people your life was a miracle and one day because of the gifts you gave us. I will find mine or this beautiful letter but probably very ordre. Why is so Daniel? I actually never met Daniel before he passed away but he and Taylor had a special bond and connection that that no other children could share. They formed the book ends of a historic clinical trial. That was actually a stem cell transplant on the happened in Portland Oregon that I go into that in detail in the book but Daniels family was the first to have the courage to step forward forward and participate in the safety trial. Not only for the hope and the good of of children facing baton but also others who could someday benefit from this kind of treatment and more than that even though there were almost three thousand miles between us we always looked at things the same way we had a similar perspective. And it's like we just. We got each heather we. We walked this journey states apart a continent apart. But but we did it together now at the time. You wrote this letter There hasn't been any breakthroughs and the research but You emailed emailed me this morning before you came here today. And we're recording this in May won't be out until our season four but You email me this morning with some pretty special news. Yeah can you talk about the. Yeah so Taylor's tail has has done a lot of really great work in different areas from research to advocacy advocacy and beyond. But I will always go back to that. One singular focus the day we were founded and that was to spearhead a treatment a viable treatment. And that would if not save. Extend the lives of children like Taylor and yesterday were you mentioned sitting here in May We got a got word of FDA clearance for a clinical trial to move forward for gene therapy. That's looking at Taylor's forma. I'm a batten disease. which was sailing one disease and we have so we have FDA clearance which is a huge hurdle to cross it doesn't always happen and then also clinical trial sites in the US us in Rochester? And this is work that again this story in the book but we We spearheaded we did this research. We did we funded. This research we met a young.

"He was a maximize IRS sort of life hacker type dude out, and he tried to do this by making to do lists about everything like huge to do list for daily virtues to fulfill so like one every day would have to fulfill like like a frugality and industry, but he found of course, these things came into conflict because he's trying to be frugal. So he's ends up. Having to spend a lot of time like doing things for himself instead of paying somebody else to do them. But then that prevents him from doing work. So he finds these less industrious. So these things are large and general and the goals are actually fighting each other. And so the. The authors point out that like psychology in Niro science research, does not always show that thinking about lists of goals is helpful. It's only helpful in some cases, given certain kinds of lists and goals like the psychologist Robert Emmons and Laura king demonstrated in a series of studies that that quote, the result of conflicting goals is unhappiness instead of action again that might seem kind of obvious, but how many obvious things do we get stuck in a rut over all the time. So first of all they found when pe- when people make a list of goals and think about them if the goals are in conflict, first of all people end up worrying a lot they end up the psychological term for this is rumination. And that's a word that just means like repetitive. Negative thought patterns worrying cycles. The second thing is actually get less done when they think about these lists of goals. People ruminate not only ruminated they ruminate instead of acting to get things done. On productivity on reaching goals decreases, and then finally physical and mental health suffers people report more negative, emotions, more, depression, and anxiety and more physical sickness. So thinking about lists of your goals listing out the things you want itself is not enough to make you become happier..

"And when you get someone like both Naro who thinks in simplistic terms that the only solution is to unleash the market and shred the safety net. That in fact, previous governments have tried to extend and that has reduced poverty as a result, and Brazil, it's not gonna work. And I think there's going to be a massive reaction against. What boats in our does or fails to do in the coming years? But the question again is what price will dump democracy pay before. Then. Well, so let me ask you about that. Because I I'm taking by your point. That's that people who want to resist the rise of authoritarianism other politicians, don't as you said don't have the answers yet about how to address appropriately. The ills that say globalization has has brought to many people around the world. But now that we have these authoritarian regimes rising does this problem of finding the answers become even more challenging because strongmen can exert a lot of pressure. They can change the rules of the political game as needed technology makes it even easier to do that by reaching directly to people has it just become that much harder to find the answers Meghna. I don't think the search for the policy answers is made harder by the rise of these. Liberal potential autocrats. I mean, the policy challenges remain are urgent and it's to some extent in electoral challenge as well as a political challenge. But the specifically political challenge has been made more difficult and more urgent because they're not only posing at policy threat to I think social Justice economic fairness and creative new challenges of reviving economic growth. There pudding civil liberties the rule of law and potentially democracy itself at risk. So some of the political and intellectual energy that we might have just devoted in a normal political situation to finding creative policy directions. We now need to invest in just defending democracy. Well, let's take one more call here. Rob is calling from Jefferson City, Missouri. Rob you're on the air. Hi, thank you. My only comment is that I live in a state that used to be a bellwether that went for Trump by nineteen points. One of the things I repeatedly hear from voters around the state when I asked them why they voted for Trump is that they essentially crave authoritarian voice because I don't think they understand that the political process is what it is. They wanted somebody that basically reached over it or cut through it. And I don't think they necessarily understand the consequences of that. And I'm curious to what your panel thinks in terms of how we overcome just a lack of curiosity and understanding that a multi-party system is gonna be like that rob. Thank you for your Call, Laura king. You have an answer for him. I think that's such a good question. I mean, democracy is is work. It's hard work, and it is kind of a shortcut to to to fall into line with a with a strong man who promises that he alone can solve things. And this is a common theme that we that we here in in countries that are headed. In this direction. No, Larry, David and Laura king. I wanna ask you both sort of final question inspired by something that Ian Bremmer recently wrote and we've had him on on the program not that long ago because he has you know, he has his book out of holidays for his own unfit belief and unfettered globalization, but he recently wrote about this sort of rise of the strongman worldwide, and he ended his article by saying that he's most concerned about what's going to happen in the future. He says the systems that powered the Cold War's winners. Now look much less appealing than they did a generation ago, why even emulate the US or European political systems with checks and balances that prevent even the most determined leaders from taking on chronic problems. When.

"And I wondered what your guests thought about his influence in this election. It's disturbing to me that he also supported marine Le Pen, and you know, her bid for for her election in France. We'll Ellison me just let me let the since you asked a good question. Let me let our panelists respond. Thank you. For your Call Laura king. Steve Bannon, still working to spread populism throughout the world what influence or role. Did. He have to play. Any in Brazil well in terms of Brazil. I'm I'm not I'm not so well versed in that. But I would I would say that one thing that's been interesting about Mr. Bannon is that he's he's encountered some some rejection and some resistance from even some of the European nationalists with with whom he seeking to make an alliance. Some of them are in effect telling him to to stay out of it. And and and that does kind of reflect their their sense of of of a homegrown homegrown tradition. Didn't I didn't I read though that Matteo Salvini Italy's deputy prime minister actually joined a Bannon's organization called the movement that he founded to spread populist politics. And basically undermined the European Union that happened recently. Right. Well, Mr. Bannon, I think has has sought actively to to export his what he did for Mr. Trump to to Europe. And that has that has pretty much been a driving force behind. And what he's been doing since he since he left the White House. I'd say, so let's go to Jill who's calling from Saint, Helena island, South Carolina. Jill you're on the air. Hi magna. I just wanted to say that strong tactics worked in the short term. However, they're not sustainable over a long time. You may get a few quick wins. But the only way to move forward and not end up in a down. Nate is to actually put the time in build relationships with the people you need to work with even if you look in in business, if you're doing a process redesign you need to get fine from all members of the team. And if you don't you skip that work of relationship being you're always going to have people working to undermine progress. Even if the progress benefits everyone Jill fake, you for your call Larry diamond do do people do politicians have the time though to to build those those relations. Ships to garner that consensus that Jill is talking about its requisite first successful democracy. Well, Meghna like to take it back to Brazil. If I may I think the question is not time but structural incentives, particularly if you wanna make government work, which really in part requires making congress work, we have our own challenges here in the United States. But it's important that we not close the hour without noting of fundamental structural impediment to a decent governance in Brazil, which is that you've got now twenty one parties sitting in the Senate thirty parties sitting in the congress both are records for Brazilian democracy at least in the current era and because of this extreme system of proportional representation. One reason why you've had so much corruption in Brazil is that presidents need to throw throw. Throw around money corruptly in order to set assemble congressional majorities out of this mix. And as the former president Fernando Enrica Cardoso said they've got to fix this system and create a more rational smaller party, congress Laura king. So just if I if I can I mean, we've been focusing on Brazil because it's Larry rightly points out. It's just happened. And there's a lot of specific things to talk about regarding a Brazil at the moment, but you know, should have done this earlier, Laura. I'm sorry that I didn't. But I was right. If you could just sort of briefly, tell us what countries you would consider, you know, part of this rise of the strongman trend we've we've seen. We've talked about the Philippines, talked about Brazil. We mentioned the United States even Russia China. What else would you would you include in that list? Well, I did have a chance to spend time recently in Poland, and Hungary and. Certainly count them among among this trend, and I would say I'm still in touch with some people in Egypt and Turkey from the time that I.

"To provide the alternative, whether it's FDR in nineteen thirty two when the rest of the world was or much of the rest of the world was turning to fascism, or, you know, Angola Mirko who's now announce that she's leaving providing a continuing steadying kind of moral center in Germany mccrone emerged at the last minute in France. Or who knows maybe lapenne would've won in France. So, you know, in the end Meghna, it comes down to politics and it. Always involves alternatives. And if democracy is going to counter the temptations of Thawra -tarian demagoguery they have to put forward alternatives. Yes. Laura. King talked to me about that a little bit because I think ugly Markle and Emmanuel Macron is Larry diamond pointed out are terrific examples of how even when you have not authorised -tarian leaders leaders who very vociferously still believe in the power of liberal democracy. They have to still manage what's a growing restlessness in their in their own electorate and disappointment. I mean, Macron's popularity I think is quite low right now in France. Yeah. I do think that that leaders like this even countries that we consider to be pretty securely democratic are certainly certainly feeling the pressure from the right? And in some cases, in some cases, having to to to to adjust some of their own positions to to to to deal with that. And that's that I think is kind of an unfortunate trend, and then then the overall weakness at the moment of the European Union is also is also very worrying because it's it's less able to serve as a check on some of the Unimak Rattig in liberal practices in places in places like Poland, and Hungary and other other countries in central and eastern Europe. Yeah. I mean, Larry diamond I'm seeing here that which has got a minute to go before the break, but Yasha moon recently wrote that there we should not trust in any single democratic messiahs to deliver us from or deliver people from the quote, many devil's lurking in the shadows. So if we he saying that we can't look to a more sort of centrist, less authoritarian leader to rise in in the face of of these forces. So where where should we look what should we look for who said not to look too messiah think anyone ever accused Angola Mirko as of presenting herself as a as a messiah point we've got to revive? Democratic politics. And I I put the word on politics, and that means not only Meghna individuals with fresh reform ideas, but also reforms, and we should talk about that in the context of Brazil the system is deeply broken.

"laura king" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"What game do you feel good about this week to go in a certain way? Not necessarily to win or anything like that. The thing that I feel really good about is that if to Sean Jackson plays and he's normal, I don't know that the bucks are going to beat the eagles. I probably would not pick that. But the one thing I do think is that if the Sean Jackson plays and it's fairly healthy, the bucks are going to score a bunch of points. So what I would say to that, yeah, is you have a lot of stuff going in your favor if you were to make that bet. So the the bucks are three point underdog at home, right? Chances are what's the over under the game? Well, let Peter glad. Jess. Let me look in my. Let me look at my action. Let me look at my action network. Gabbing. Tell you what I would also tell you is that. Historically, what's going to happen is hold on one second. I'm just scrolling here. I can't scroll and talk at the same time that total right now. It's at forty four, forty, three and a half. So so yeah, with that say, yeah, forty three and a half. You might wanna bet the over, but I will tell you the majority of the public is going to bet the over like that's just what's going to happen. If you wanna bet. Aside in that game, I have no opinion on that game. I didn't love what I saw on the eagles. I actually feel like the eagles are probably overrated. The Super Bowl champion is always overrated. They always get too many points in the market. The bucks. I think there if this game was played a week ago, it'd probably be a six point spread right? Because because maybe more but the bucks beat up on the saints. I think the saints I've already bought a Saint Super Bowl ticket at eighteen to one, but they killed them. So now all of a sudden don't forget public perception. Hello. That's the baseline for making a point spread the bookmakers. No, the better is going to bet what they saw last, but they saw last with the eagles struggle and the bucks kill him. Right. So you're gonna get to this game. You're gonna have a road favourite who's going to be getting the majority of the bets. It could be upwards of seventy to eighty percent of the bets are going to come in on the eagles. That is a prime spot for a home team as an underdog to cover, but your question? Yeah. Last question. I'm just curious about this. Do sports books change weekly on things like the saints saints eighteen to one to win the Super Bowl? Is that correct? Yes. What would they be this week with anybody change that right now? Yeah, you change it a little bit me now tried to dig into look and find it. It's not going to be dramatic. You know, these things don't change off of a week, but you did see, I think like somebody, I think the Steelers went from ten to one to twelve to one based on sort of how badly they looked, but also don't forget the bookmakers. Never do this based on sort of how bad team looks. It's based on the potential liability. They make the decisions based on money. You know what I mean? And so it's aren't they trying to real people into make of it sometimes, but like futures, you don't care as much that's really about sides and totals and week to week, like futures bets. It's like, all right. We're putting the Rams at at. We're putting the saints at eighteen to one someone came in, they better dime on the on the saints drop in. Numbers, we get people to bed because our liability is so much higher. Now, Chad. This is interesting. I still don't have any idea about gambling. I appreciate you. Bet you can call me and I'll tell you what. Chad millman my longtime friend. He knew Laura king when she was in fifth grade. And you probably that means you knew Mary Beth king when she was in second grade, hang pong in your base. I remember ping pong. Yeah. Hey, anyway, I really appreciate this will be in touch with many times in the future when something happens around the NFL and gambling that I should know. But I'll have no idea about. I would be happy to tell you..
